This week for Video Game Tuesday I’m looking at Google’s new console now that is has been out on the market since November. It’s Stadia 4 Months Later!

Stadia? what’s that?: Exactly, Stadia was being hyped up to be the big console killer, to replace all consoles and allow anyone to enjoy a game in super high definition without having a super gaming PC. 4 Months later and it’s still pretty much an unknown and has a grand total of 29 games available to play. That’s a terrible lineup, but that’s not all! Nope it’s had mutiple technical issues, from streaming lag impacting gameplay to not actually meeting resolutions as “promised”. That last is in quotes because pretty much every single line on the Stadia webpage has an asterisk on it with at least a quarter of it being footnotes for gods sake. So while it sounds like a great idea, it just won’t be until the US has a standard internet connection that isn’t utter crap.

So it’s like I said prior to this being released and when it was being hyped up months ago. Stadia is a great dream, but that’s all it will ever be until the US gets better internet for everyone.
