  1. Any news on if this will have streaming? I'm keen to play Returnal but don't want to buy the hardware (even if it was available).
  2. I put 10-15 hours in whist I was off work with Covid recently. I've never played the previous games so everything was new. I generally struggled to see the attraction tbh but I'll probably go back to it when I've got a chunk of time.
  3. I've done the tutorial and have tried the first dungeon with the wolves but am stumped by the boss there. I also tried the nearby village (Limgate?) which is a stealth section but kept getting stomped by the golden Knight (although have been close a few times). I wandered over the bridge to the south of Limgate and needed to avoid the Knight. Knights in general are OP for me right now although I did manage to take one down in horsie combat. I haven't played again since I originally posted but generally couldn't work out if I was losing to high powered ads because I was shit or if the game is trying to tell me to avoid them at this stage. Something specific I couldn't work out is how to conjure spirits. I've got a wolf pack spirit thingy but when I try and use it it's blanked out and the game doesn't seem to tell me what I'm missing to use this. This would be useful for bosses I think as it would take their focus off me 100% whereas right now, I don't find useful breaks in their combos.
  4. Thanks all. I will persevere!
  5. I'm struggling with this game. I've never played the genre before but generally an finding the fighting very frustrating. It seems to vary between extremely easy and extremely hard ads in a nano second and blocking doesn't seem to work for anything hard. I've not managed to take down a bit yet, generally feeling frustrated by it.
  6. Played through the campaign of the Witch Queen yesterday. It wasn't without its charms. I was about to jack it all in and then I stumbled upon the legendary playthrough option and it's fantastic.
  7. Assuming they can actually sell the platform on a whitelabel basis I'd imagine there's very little additional cost to continuing the Stadia store. It actually makes sense from a game developer's perspective too as you have a choice of being your own store, but there are costs in that, or you can just use the Stadia platform (friends lists, chat etc. etc.) directly.
  8. Google's playing catch-up in Cloud. I wouldn't be surprised if that's true.
  9. You can only play up to 1440p @ 120 FPS on everything other than the Shield right now (e.g. your Mac).
  10. Just for 4k HDR streaming at the moment I think. All other clients max out at 1440p 120fps right now but I presume that's something Nvidia will fix. Google did a similar thing originally with Chromecast Ultra but eventually got browser and app support up to 4k HDR
  11. I personally think the 3080 tier pricing is pretty good. £15 a month gets you a top tier graphics card which in today's market is thousands of pounds, not really available anyway and is not top tier 1-2 years away. It also means I can dip in and out of top tier graphics.
  12. GeForce Now is probably as good or better than Stadia these days from a pure stream quality perspective. The main limitations of GeForce Now today is that to get a 4k HDR stream you need a Shield which costs £180 and that sort of defeats the point. Plus the user experience of launching games still isn't as good as Stadia but that's partly because of it's "bring your own library" model.
  13. Unfortunately Stadia seems to have lost momentum since Cyberpunk. It's a great platform, but the new releases have really dried up. I said a while back in this thread after MS started buying everything that Google needed to go big or go home. Unfortunately I think they've gone home. It also annoys me to see Stadia not trying to compete with GeForce Now 3080. That was always the big promise of cloud gaming for me.
  14. The open world is a great sandbox. You can imagine them doing some great Firefight modes on there for example.
  15. Just keep shooting them until they die! I found the boss beforehand with the gravity hammer a real difficulty spike. Like many Halo games, a lot depends on what weapons you carried into the checkpoint but I had a fully loaded Spanker and still struggled.
  16. I wasn't expecting much here tbh but I'm really enjoying the campaign here. I'm about 4 "bosses" in and generally like the grapple mechanic and open world style. The graphics are really stunning (PC) - great draw distance and textures. All in all a welcome surprise for me.
  17. The sharing is at the game level across family members. It's entirely separate to other Google products.
  18. Most of the games aren't rendered in 4k in the background so "Pro" is really 4k upscaling (albeit a nice upscale). Also, the general pattern developing now is for games to have a "performance" mode which means 1080p at 60fps. Cyberpunk, RDR2 and Control all basically don't benefit from Pro under this model for this reason. Pro has surround sound too, but it's a really narrow implementation of surround sound (raw PCM) that many things don't support or TVs don't pass through. Again, limited value.
  19. Had a decent crack on this last night. Been ages since I played a Halo game a took a while to get used to the high ttk again but thoroughly enjoyed it all. Nice to have a tactical 4v4 objective shooter but also nice to have BTB for the chilled lols. Still getting used to all the weapons. Feels like the DMRs aren't as dominate as they used to be and the plasma weapons are more important for taking down shields, more like Halo 1 in that regard which is good because it's a chunk of the game's identify. Technically it's great (XSX), super solid graphics and 60fps. I think this could be "the one" for a while.
  20. Glad you're enjoying it. It's a really beautiful game in many ways.
  21. Control is great, definitely worth a go especially seeing as AAA is a bit lean pickings on Stadia right now
  22. 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.
