Google Stadia review, three months later: Nothing ventured, nothing changed

Image
Stadia desperately needs some TLC from Google, because it's being neglected right now. As with any service like Google Stadia , it evolves over time. What it launched as may look nothing like what it becomes three months, six months, even a year after release. Because of this, we'll continually look at Stadia to see how far it's come — and how far it still needs to go to become a viable game streaming service for everyone. To get it out of the way, in the three months since its launch in November 2019, not much has changed at all. Despite Google's insistence that the company is still working on features like Crowd Play and State Share, none of these features have been added yet. Stadia is still woefully under baked, and unfortunately more time in the oven hasn't helped yet. What has changed since launch is that Stadia is now available on more platforms and has a few more games. But to act like these alone make Stadia a much better service now than in N

Bethesda a bit bazzled at gamers' blasé response to Fallout 76 PvP

Image
Pete Hines spills the beans. What you need to know Fallout 76 is the latest in Bethesda's post-apocalyptic RPG games. It has had a pretty unenthusiastic response from players since launch. Pete Hines said in an interview that Bethesda was surprised by some of the responses. Bethesda is commited to fixing some of these mistakes in the future. If someone were to say that Fallout 76 had a bit of a rough launch, that would be a massive understatement. The ambitious evolution of Bethesda's notorious post-apocalyptic RPG's didn't feature NPC's, single-player events or a cohesive story line, instead focusing on multiplayer and co-op, as well as environmental storytelling. Suffice to say, that combined with the rough state the game launched in led to a negative response from many of Fallout's fans. Pete Hines, Bethesda's senior vice president of global marketing and communications, had more to say about the subject in an interview with USGamer. I t

Developers don't trust Google Stadia or are offered enough to port games

Image
Now we know what developers think. What you need to know Google Stadia is a game streaming service from the search giant. It still doesn't have a lot of games that would attract a lot of people to the service. Business Insider managed to interview developers who have concerns about compensation and long-term survivability. You can purchase a Stadia: Premiere Edition for $130 on the Google Store . Google Stadia is a cloud game streaming service that launched late last year. Since then, it hasn't really seen a tremendous influx of games and it seems like a lot of developers don't support the platform even after all this time. Additionally, image quality is also questionable since many games run at lower resolutions and sometimes frame rates than the Xbox One X. Recently, Business Insider spoke with a number of game developers about their thoughts on Stadia. Unfortunately, some significant issues emerged during those discussions. The outlet said the followin

A “lightweight Xbox One” less powerful may be coming in 2016

photo by  technobuffalo hardware revisions have to an expected part of the console life cycles for decades, but usually they are hardware updates meant that kick up sales and reduce costs of production. Now an Xbox One Hardware Revision is rumored to be on the way, but it does not sound like quite the same thing. According to Microsoft blogger Brad Sams the Petri, rumors of a "lightweight Xbox One" were taking in recent months. If he says easy, he does not speak of an elegant, optimized version like the Xbox 360s Slim edition, but it is slightly less powerful - get your jokes about the current Xbox one's Power ready for the "Comments" section - and less expensive. The system, he says, is "a lightweight Xbox One, perhaps the only for Windows save games and compete with Apple TV." Similar rumors were floating around during the start window for the Xbox One a few years back, but obviously were scrapped. My guess is that if something like this w

The Evil Within Xbox One

For a game about the dangers of brain invasion, the evil within is not above some mind-Messing own.  Implementation of the classic tune Clair de lune when your hero reaches a save point creates a Pavlovian response. Tinkling ivories means security in a world to kill you. No tinkling ivories? Better try to keep your organs inside your body a little more. Eventually the mind plays tricks: think hearing the first bars in the wind; Turns out it's the jingle restrictions brandishing a chainsaw maniac. This is not a new trick Shinji Mikami - think typewriters rooms soothing Resident Evil - but walking through a dark unknown. Mikami graduates from fearsome reptile ghost to a suffocating oppression house. A deep darkness makes it hard to see more than a few meters ahead. The flashlight on the belt often blind to their lens flare or glare makes you look wobbly nonexistent monsters in shadows. Even the aspect ratio is against you; thick black bars 2.35: 1 violate sight like a roof that

Microsoft is developing technology that transmits Xbox games on PC browsers . if a new report by veteran journalist Brad Sams Microsoft Neowin is correct. One Both Xbox and Xbox 360 games are supposed to work with the service, which can be accessed through Internet Explorer or Chrome.   Last year, Microsoft has it used the effervescent power of the cloud to show Halo 4 is running on a Windows Phone , among other devices .
