Google Stadia


Google Stadia will arrive in November

- At least if you get the Founder's Edition



Google Stadia. The service that will allow you to play games without downloading and installing them on your PC or console. It is not just like the ordinary gaming subscription services you can find.


Here you are able to stream the hardware from Google. If you have a good Internet connection, you will be able to play games at 60 FPS, 4K quality. All you have to do is pay a small fee each month for this service. You will have to buy the games that you are going to play through the service though. Not sure how that works. If it will be some sort of platform like Steam where you gain access to a library of titles that you have purchased.


Why am I hyping this?

- Because it is the future!



The next generation of consoles won't be needed if a service like this becomes successful. For starters, this seemed unlikely to succeed. But if you take a look at the games that they are using to launch this service. They sure seem confident that this will work with online games as well.


Take a look at this list of games that will be available.


Destiny 2

The Elder Scrolls Online

Borderlands 3

Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Mortal Kombat 11

The Division 2

Baldur's Gate 3

Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Football Manager 2020

… and the list continues.

Amazing right?



What about this deal that is the Founder's Edition? Is it expensive?

If you brake it down and think about the fact that it will give you 3 months of Stadia, a controller as well as the Chromecast Ultra. Then this does sound like a pretty sweet deal.If you want to hear Bas and Roman discuss this news, it is the main topic of episode 178 of The Fit Gamer Podcast. You can find it where you usually find podcasts. If you are a gamer and are interested in how the future of gaming will look like - you are most likely about to witness a big step being taken in November.


As a Swede, it is easy to be hyped. On most locations, we have really fast Internet connections. I am not sure how it is in other countries. Perhaps it will be the state of the Internet connection that will determine the success of this project. But no matter if it is successful now or if it will happen in 5 years time. This is probably what the future will look like either way. Not having to purchase expensive setups that will grow old and need replacement. Better to pay a monthly fee to be able to use powerful hardware.


By the way...Baldur's Gate 3! This is the first time I hear about it! Farewell social life! Been dreaming of a new Baldur's Gate for years!
