      Unlike Stadia, Epic doesn't charge you per month just to use the service besides just the cost of the game itself.

      No biggie, I'll just not play the games. My back catalogue is huge, and I've minimal time to play anyway. I'll not give stadia my money, just like with epic... I'll take the free games though lmao.

      Unless Doom internal goes late exclusive, then I riot.

      That's only if people give a shit by then. People get angry with Epic because they love the company, the idea of competing with Steam, or the games that are exclusive. My guess is that, in six months time, it will either be forgotten (like the Tiger Games) or will be a laughing stock (eg Anthem or Fallout 76).

      Just don't get the point of paying a subscription to have to buy a game which I would normally need to purchase anyway. I mean if having all my games at my fingertips is an issue I'd just buy an external harddrive and go digital.

    Think about this and this is a scary thought, the people who bought Stadia and fallout 76 and stuck with it and are now pissed with said products now because they now realized they where sold a failed product. That everyone else knew something was wrong with said products and said so for some time. Are these same people are probably able to vote now that's scary!

    Google hot tid of their founding motto " do no harm". They are now the most subversive and insidious companies in the world in regards to meta data. They want to know what you buy, what videos you watch, where you go, what websites you traffic, how your health is. They want it all so they can sell your data so you buy stuff. I get best buy commercials because I pay my bill online now wtf

    If you pre-ordered and bought into this, your loss of money is only your own fault. There is a very clear history of how Google treats all of its projects, just how much effort goes into them, and how they are likely to die off with no warning. And, Google's interviews where they ere either refusing to answer questions or were downright condescending were right out there in the open. Write this off as a loss and next time, learn to pay attention instead of buying into the hype.

  • Joachim kowalski

    I got strong feeling is a trend that Bethesda fallout 76 starts, peope buy preorders which is beta, full price, test it, an then we add som kind of pay subscription. If it not gona work we cut our losses, that preorders pays. Is like "crowdfund portal" for giant company. And it is growing not only warcraft 3 reforge, but beyond gams in to hardware just like stadia. I think it got bigger, internet owerflow with negativity, but money will flow, so why they bother.

    theres a totally fine way to play games btw..
    get a good rig and play your pc games on steam .
    no overpriced outdated hardware that sounds like a vacuum cleaner
    no exclusivity shizz
    no online feature to pay besides your normal internet
    etc. etc. etc.
    -never change a running system .. thats one of the first things you learn being any kind of techy so whats the point of all that ?

    If you were dumb enough to sign up for this then you deserve to get ripped off. You weren't ripped off enough actually. And good luck making any future life decisions. Might want to consider hiring a life coach so you can be relieved of the burden of picking out your socks. You know the socks you actually buy... rather than paying a fee to access your sock drawer so you can then pick out the socks that you still have to pay for.

    As someone who lives in a area where data caps are a thing for home internet, Stadia was never a consideration, not even close to it.

  • Ryan Lawler
    Ryan Lawler 2 months ago

    Here's a list of references for infamous consoles and how long they took to fail;
    Virtual Boy-7 months before being discontinued.
    Wii U-10 months before being discontinued.
    Philips CDI-a year before Phillips filed for bankruptcy.
    Stadia-2 months.
    Even though it hasn't vanished from the Earth yet, as an enjoyable and widely used game console, it's falling flat. It's a lot like something like Halo 1 multiplayer. So old fashioned that no one is around to play with or for. Only difference, Halo 1 came out in 2001 and this came out in November last year. And I just realised something. This console will die even will all these planned patches and games. Why? Because the main audience will falter and die with no new players since the game is absurd and any remaining players will soon realise that, once this console becomes nonprofitable, Google will shut down the service and will have walked off with the player's money, fucking them royally.

  • Ryan Lawler
    Ryan Lawler 2 months ago

    Turns out I was right when this was first announced. At best, it was a half assed attempt to bend a massive demographic (gamers) around Google's finger. At worst, it's a cashgrab. In facts it's both judging by the monetisation of this. I declare this worse than loot boxes or microtransactions since, even with all the money the bullshit, you at least have the same game that you own. This is money for a game console that makes Atari look like the PS5.

  • Gary Madafaka-Oak

    Note that this is happening with tech product that's supposed to revolutionize how we play games. Just take a look at early VR adoptors or forums of Star Citizen for example. It's closer to religion than simple hype. No Man Sky's fanboys were ready to lynch anyone who wasn't ready to praise the game as the literal best thing this industry has ever seen, even though nobody had actually played it yet. I never saw that kind of enthusiasm and zeal with Stadia. Sure there were few optimists here and there but the internet wasn't filled with same feuds that console wars and consoles-PC bring up to this day. nobody was DDosing or threatening journos that didn't sing Stadia's praises. It was clear that despite their own ambition, almost nobody saw them as serious competitor for any major platform holder, even though on paper they were offering something none of their competitors did.

    It's not even entertaining to publicly bash Stadia because there's next to nobody to be butthurt about that. That in turn will mean that the coverage for it will die down as nobody's going to click Kotaku & co. links to leave their angry two cents to the discussion. And when that happens, they're gonna die down even faster than F76 or any other offensively bad product because nobody even remembers that they still exist.

    Another piece of evidence to support the fact that gamers are becoming stupider and more selfish. People tend to think that them paying for a horrible product means nothing.. now imagine if 10k people bought that thinking the same thing. Either they don't actually realize that it does make a difference or that they're willfully ignorant of it and don't care. Fallout 76 should not have players and people paying for it, regardless if it's fun for them or not. Make a stand, say that these horrible games are not ok. I guess that's too much to ask.

    stadia sonded good on paper
    however gaming on the actual platform has been a failure point because you are just getting something akin to ps1/ps2 version of a game
    as a distribution medium stadia was great, may be could of functioned as a gaming server of sorts, as stem clone usable
    though the reality is that hardware was the is its failing point and trying emulate what was an essential pc game type early to late 90's spelled the doom of the platform
    IF GOOGLE had of delivered this into pc or console platform then they would of had a leg up however either due poor business management or poor development of actual hardware has caused what should of been the touted downfall of either console or pc gaming or may be both failed to deliver.
    since the need of some type of google device is a need for the sytem to be used..
    looking at features plausible for streaming content from 1 device to another needs to be on the same home network or requires a multi port hdmt output pushed over 10Gb lan
    at the moment wifi cinnection to tv lets me access you eith er on pc or app as control input to access u=youtube on the idiot box
    and the lemon and elephant in the room is netflicks 1 main login is doable however you are looking at alot of dummy account to access multiple devices on their services same user can't be shared by all devices,,

    I likeed google for feature set though my experience with youtube has taught me this even on a 100/40 internet speed you can be buffered down to 240x120 resolution just to get stable content instead of being stuck in buffering in what you are watching..
    a base install from ps4/ps4 pro and xbox 1 x is somewhere between 120-240GB once you factor in 4k/4khdr support and factoring in day 1 update and dlc and some entirety of mods can a few games north 1-2.5+TB or more on install
    this can also be the case on pc aswell..

    If you are going to try and clone steam then deliver the same product services as steam than trying to upstage steam and deliver that is within the realm of console delivery.. and failint ot deliver it

    I think this falls into the realm of what intel does when trying delivery a GPU spend billions in concept stage and goes nowhere ..

    If google bought developers and publishers for timed exclusively, those devs better learn how to stretch that money until their game goes multiplatform.
