Google Stadia is Out Today and Reportedly a 'Monumental Flop'

It's time for "good news, bad news."

For the past several months now, we have offered up glimpses of the story-driven VR adventure title Journey for Elysium.

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

Today, Google revealed a list of 12 games that will serve as the launch titles for when Stadia has a soft launch on November 19. For $130, you were able to get in on the ground floor of the launch of Stadia with the Founder's Edition. These kits have...

Players could "earn" rewards such as powerful AI fighters and other bonuses from these purchased chests. These powerful fighters were key to having a powerful defense in the Nemesis System, which tied directly into the game's online multiplayer. Because who doesn't like going up against a horde of powerful but purchased foes? Sure, players could earn many of these chest...
