One of the coolest features of Stadia will be the way Google’s own controller will handle communications with the game server. Instead of plugging the controller directly into your gaming device – be it your Chromebook, phone or tablet – users will be able to set the controller up to communicate directly with the same […]
Gamescom is in full swing and the Stadia booth is right in the middle of the action, displaying Google’s streaming game platform to the most critical of gamers during the conference. We’ve been scouring for hands-on videos and real impressions from the booth and have yet to see very much being reported. Whether it is […]
News surrounding Google’s Stadia game streaming platform is in full force with the latest Stadia Connect having recently aired and Google’s strong presence at Gamescom happening right now. We’re expecting to see more real-world hands-on coverage from the show in Germany, but what we’ve seen so far tells us that Stadia is legit, the game […]
Today at Google’s Stadia Connect, a ton of new titles were announced for Stadia and we’re extremely excited about a few of those, including Watchdogs 3, Super Hot, and Cyberpunk 2077.

If you had asked me a year ago whether you should upgrade to the 4K Chromecast Ultra, I would likely have told you to save your money. Unless you’re a UHD videophile, it’s likely that you don’t consume a lot of media in the ultra-high-definition, 4K format. Fast forward to today and 4K televisions can […]
Bear with me for a few moments as I let my theory materialize onto the page. In just a few months, Google will release Stadia to the world and potentially change the landscape of gaming as we know it. Among the many benefits of Google’s streaming game service is the ability to play on a […]
In a Reddit thread just a few days old, user sofaspy has posted a screenshot that showcases an ad that you may have begin seeing soon in your social media feeds if you’ve shown interest in the past, and the ad hints quite strongly that the next Stadia Connect could be soon: perhaps as soon […]
