Destiny 2's active playerbase down to 8000, it's dropped nearly 60% since launch.

Unless it goes free tomorrow, with all that shit they talked about before launch, y'know, you're watching a YouTube video about a game, or an advertisement for a game and it has a 'PLAY NOW' button next to it and 10 seconds later you're playing the game? Unless that stuff comes really soon, Stadia is dead. If it isn't already.

I find it strangely haunting when multiplayer games are still technically active but no one is around to play them, like when I tired Perfect Dark online multiplayer on the Xbox360 version (quite some time after it's release). In this big old world there was, eventually, one other lonely person like me playing this old game.

It almost felt like the sadly melancholy/creepy kinda vibe when wandering around old, deserted, childhood hangouts

Ooof.

Comment re Stadia:

Google only calculating how long to wait to save some face before shuttering this, surely.

MS brought the big guns. Google have so much money that they needed to do the same and create that 'un-bee-leeve-able' sense of value, rather than a 'what now, £40 quid to buy a game to play on my subscription' vibe they have nailed so well.

Yeah he's been going for aaaaaaaaaages, I'm sure he had a Madness track as his intro music years ago but I guess it had to be changed for copyright reasons.

Anyway, who's getting Stadia then? Lol.

I shout commands down the phone to D, while she kinda describes what is happening on the screen, which is pretty much the same experience going by youtube reviewers.

In this story, you're the caller and D is Sarah Greene, but who's the guy sat behind the screen frantically waggling the joystick based on what people are shouting in his ear?

I think you're thinking about the same 80s show as me but I'm fucked if I can remember the bloody name of it.

I reckon we could incorporate a Hugo game into a Beex Tuesday night quiz... Hmmm... That's got me thinking.

Google launches new Chromecast.

Won't have Stadia support until 2021.

Is the plot already prepared in the Google Graveyard?

With Microsoft's 'Netflix for Games' service already up and running, it's hard to see where Stadia goes from here. Except the graveyard. I can see it going there.

You can sideload the Stadia app pretty easily.

I've heard the reason that it hasn't launched officially with the new Chromecast is that the streams are currently targeting a lower resolution for phones, but naturally people are going to be less forgiving on a 75inch 4k TV than on a 6inch phone.

Better a late start than a botched one.

Please note that Xcloud is also not officially supported by the new Chromecast yet either.

Well yes but at the risk of stating the obvious, the Chromecast is not a Microsoft product. I'm sure there are <insert reasons here> that Stadia doesn't currently work on the new Chromecast, but the optics of it still aren't good.

And to address the above point, I don't 'hate' Stadia, it'd be daft to hate an online game streaming service. I am however fascinated by technology, and in this instance I'm perplexed by how far short Stadia has fallen short of the promises, with the might of Google behind it.

The history is all there in this thread, I initially called 'fail' because I didn't think the world wanted another 'OnLive' (and I still don't think it will anytime soon), changed my tack when I started to understand the scope of Google's ambitions for Stadia, but now here we are at the end of 2020 and basically none of the cool shit they promised is here, it is just another OnLive, and one that Google aren't even supporting on their new Chromecast for months.

Who is Stadia for? Who wants it? Who'd recommend it to a friend or family member, and on what grounds?
