Google Stadia

Recommended Posts

Lots of reviews up now and most say to wait; it’s not worth it yet. The Ars review covers quality on wired vs wireless pretty well and the cost analysis vs consoles/PC. This has convinced me Not to even look at Stadia for now. LCVG and gamers like us aren’t likely the target market anyway but, the cost of the Founders edition + sub + games isn’t great and quality on anything but a wired connection was “wildly inconsistent”. 
 

I'm still curious about it but, It’s too easy to wait till March 2020 or so and see if it has improved before even considering trying it.

With the pricing, requirements, and alternatives on the market... I don’t know if there is a target market for this.

 

It seems particularly engineered to please nobody.

I'm trying to dig up when you said this exact thing about the iPhone back in the day but it is taking me forever.

Yeah, this is a no-go in our house.

 

"Boys, stop watching videos on your iPads! Daddy wants to play a game on Stadia!"

 

Does Google say this even if you have super fast internet? I get 275 down from Xfinity, which is -- according my Eero app -- enough to do multiple 4K streams and online gaming at once. Would I really see a dip in performance if I had other internet activity in the house while playing a game? I would think that with an even faster connection, you wouldn't run into issues.

Right, the answer is that it depends, obviously.  It depends on your shitty router.  It depends on your shitty internet. It depends on your shitty kids watching shitty 4K minecraft videos. It depends on your shitty wife watching 4K Bachelor. 

 

I think the days where we continue to install these big expensive proprietary quickly-obsolete fixtures under our TVs seem to be numbered. For movies, TV, and games.  Let me authenticate and watch or play whatever I want on whatever screen is in front of me. We swallowed lower quality music with MP3's in favor of the convenience and flexibility. How can that not be the future for games too.  Maybe we're 5 years away and this is the beginning.

Are you doing the thing where you know your wife would never read your text messages, but just in case, when ever you message your x-girlfriend, you make sure to mention that you love your wife. The key point being that I’m your x-girlfriend in this analogy.
