  1. Control is great, definitely worth a go especially seeing as AAA is a bit lean pickings on Stadia right now
  2. Control Ultimate Edition is on pro now I think. I bought it a few months back when it first came to Stadia - definitely make sure you change the settings to high framerate mode.
  3. Just got a 3070. This set off a chain reaction of me needing a new PSU and SSD. I really hope I use this thing!
  4. I think the 2020 and 2021 LG OLEDs have a native app now too. You'd need a Bluetooth controller to make it work (or the Stadia controller obvs).
  5. I'm feeling like getting back into this after a long while out. Where should I start? I always get confused when going back in with all the options
  6. Control Ultimate Edition just went onto Stadia. I'm quite tempted as I've not played it before but heard great things. It's got a 60fps mode at 1080p. Torn between getting it on Stadia where I can play it on many TVs in my house versus the XSX which has the 4k 60fps version but is confined to my office. Decisions decisions.
  7. I had a go with "tandem" mode where you connect your Non-Stadia controller to the Stadia controller. I used my Xbox Elite controller and it all worked as intended from my perspective, no difference in input latency or anything. The only issue from my end is that I use a USB-C wireless headset so can't use tandem and this headset at the same time. Nice feature though.
  8. Given that Stadia's cut there covers an entire hosting environment rather than just a digital store and market place that sounds like pretty good value.
  9. I seem to remember Phil Spencer saying they'd ended up with a variety of developer remuneration options underneath Gamepass because different developers wanted different things. IIRC, he talked about many developers wanting an up-front payment which basically de-risked the entire process for them. The thing that immediately struck me on Stadia's new model was the "session days" thing. If you're going to do this on time in some way then surely you want to use elapsed time and not penalise infrequent long gaming sessions over frquent short ones? The announcement that Stadia will only take a 15% cut on sales I guess is welcome but I don't know what the comparators here here. They didn't even say what it was coming down from so it's hard to tell.
  10. How does the new respawn mechanic work on Taego? Is it.... weird?
  11. I setup my son on this with family sharing at the weekend. Google's family sharing stuff is a little confusing as you get bounced around between different apps in the Play ecosystem and then Stadia itself, but once it's setup it's great. Really nice parental controls over what he can and can't play, and he inherits all the games I've bought and through the Pro sub. There's a lot there for younger audiences these days.
  12. Just gave this a go for the first time as it's on Stadia Pro. Fuck me it's tricky!
  13. I only play unranked, assuming that this would be less sweaty,but I think that's just where the sweats hang out to get their stats up. Am I doing it wrong, will ranked try and match me with people at my level?
  14. Get this, I spent some time on pubg stats today and I've played a total of 700 odd games in my time since the game came out on Xbox 3 years or so back. I checked out the total games of the two lads that ended my last two games on Friday evening - 7,500 and 11,500 lifetime games each! It's sweaty out there. What was also interesting is that Pubg stats shows you the bot percentage in your games. It's been about 1.5% in my games recently and I rarely bumped into them. So my statement that it was hard to tell them apart from real players was probably wrong as I've just been playing against real players.
