    Could sell that controller mate. Google ask £59 for one!

    Metro Exodus plays fantastic. No issues at-all. Completely forgot it's being streamed, as Stadia should be, now if they can keep this up with other visually impressive games then there is hope for the Platform.

    I'm about an hour into Metro and couldn't gel with it at all. Not my type of game. But yes, plays well

    I've had Stadia since November and I've not had a bad experience on it. No complaints, I don't even think about it being streamed when playing :)

    Family life has taken most of my time but I have set myself a goal of finishing TR:20th Anniversary before my 3 months runs out at the end of Feb... Will likely keep the sub going as I haven't 'bought' any games on it yet, just claimed the pro games.

    As Stadia Base isn't out yet I really am wondering what will happen when subs run out... Will you be able to play any of the games you have bought? I haven't read any clear documentation

    Yes games you buy will still work but streamed at 1080p max, I haven't used mine much recently because my internet has been playing up, but also because games like Journey to the Savage planet released so i have been having great fun on that and npw I've restarted Div2 on the PS4, Mainly use Stadia when i put the kids to bed.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is now in the Pro Sale for anyone interested - £16.50

    So far Stadia seems to have completely random sales. Not like in Nintendo Switch where games are rotated for sale every Thursday.

    Quite telling that the majority of posts have came from one member. Certainly shows how poorly Google launched / marketed this thing.

    I wonder if Google realised it was going to struggle and figured they wouldn't waste any money on trying to promote it.

    Pretty depressing outlook when it's got a handful of pretty stale games and no enthusiasm from any tech people on YouTube or the press.

    I'm baffled if anyone was ever optimistic this was going to take off. I've no experience with the product as it doesnt do anything better I cant already or want to do but I'm sure it still has a role for some.

    I have been thinking the same but decided not to bother posting as he seems to get defensive for some reason.
