Google Stadia is NOT the savior of gaming.

Now most of us play online occasionally. As I mentioned Gears stutters.

Reading the reviews it seems that my optimism was misplaced. On launch the console it quite average

So you've experienced it first hand? I'd really like to hear what the overall experience is like.

just going by that review, my router is old. and it sounds like i need a 120 mb a second connection to get a game. I had thought about pre ordering but whenever I have done that I have got burned.

I thought I might see if they had any games I actually wanted to play like Dead Rising or the like. So far they have zero games.

Plus I am more interested in the Amico as my next system.

The Stadia is already looking like a bust. I think several of us called it from the start.

I was tempted to say "just because you can do something doesn't mean it's a good idea", but in this case it appears Google couldn't do it in the first place!

Ditto. I am very excited about the Amico. Looks downright awesome.

Can O Worms is they are reliant on a service they have no control over.

A list of 3rd party games on everything but Stadia on November 19th onward. Kind of reminds you of this situation back in the WIi U era.: https://web.archive.org/web/20170702041 ... _but_Wii_U


Welcome to the forum. I spy Outer Worlds in this list. This title has the potential to be a classic. I am playing it now and it might be one of the best games I have played. Done by the same folks that brought us Fallout New Vegas.
