Darksiders Genesis (Stadia) $39.99

For the 5 other Canadians that have Stadia like myself :p

Darksiders just released and has the US pricing, which I imagine will be fixed soon and inevitably be bumped up to $49.99

Any news if there will be any F2P games on Stadia?

There hasn't been mention of any yet. I have a feeling it won't be a thing until they set up an infrastructure for microtransaction sales. If games do microtransactions outside of Google taking a cut then Google would just lose money unless the traffic it drives to the platform makes up for the losses.

Wait, so you pay full price for a game that you stream?

So let me get this straight.
The hundreds of professional AND personal reviews I've watched/analysed/seen about the latency and lag problem of stadia should all be dismissed , simply because I haven't personnaly used it?

Ok...

Stadia (at the moment) really only makes sense if you have no hardware to run current or next-gen games and have no plan to buy any. I see it being an easy sale for casual gamers and families with young children who don't want to invest in a console. They just need games to match this target market (and marketing to reach these people).

Bought it on Stadia myself.

As for paying full price for "streaming" a game, sure. I'm paying full price for a game that is being computed elsewhere for me and streamed.

Lag for me has not been a problem. I have a 300d/10u cable connection, wired the chromecast as well. When I was at the office it worked fine there too.

Add me on Stadia if you like. Same name: Ramorous.

I have a PS4, a switch and now Stadia. I do prefer playing on Stadia, the portability is what sold me. To play on my PS4, I need to get away to the basement, make sure the wife isn't mad about me tucking myself away to play, whereas stadia, I can just pick up and play here and there as needed.

Ah, excellent another person who is pretending latency isn't an issue.

You must live inside a google server room.

Or marketing that will get those casuals to try "core" games and become less casual.

Thanks, OP. I have Stadia, and it works flawlessly on all of my networks (maybe I'm just lucky?)
