    Google Unveils 'Stadia' Gaming Platform and Controller, Launching in 2019


    A short time ago today, Google formerly unveiled their new gaming platform. It's called Stadia and it's slated to launch later this year. It is a streaming platform that utilizes server hardware more powerful than an Xbox One X to deliver games in up to 4K, 60fps with HDR capabilities to your screen of choice.

    During their presentation, Google showed off their Stadia controller that can be used across a number of devices. They showed Assassin's Creed: Odyssey being streamed across a laptop in a browser, phone, tablet, and even to your TV via a Chromecast Ultra. All of it was...

    Logo for Google's Gaming Thing Revealed at GDC


    We still don't fully know yet what gaming related thing Google is going to reveal this week at GDC 2019. However, we do know a couple of things.

    First, we know that Google is going to reveal whatever this thing is at 10AM (PT) on Wednesday. We also know that they have display cases ready to go that will house some sort of hardware. Or maybe they're being cheeky and they're already showing off something in those cases. Maybe it's a cloud. Really makes you think...

    Finally, we also got a look at the logo for this Google gaming thing. Special thanks to John Voor...

    Google Teases Their New Gaming Console in GDC 2019 Promo Video


    It's no secret that Google has been working on a gaming console. They've had a patent filed since late 2018 showing off the potential design for the new console's controller. It's kind of the typical console controller design that most of us have already come to know and probably love.

    It's currently unclear as to what Google has planned for this device. Multiple sources have said that it will be a console that focuses on streaming. However, some rumors have suggested that the hardware included will make it more powerful than an Xbox One X. And while a lot of great hardware...

    Epic Games Reportedly Launching Mobile App Store Next


    First, Epic came for Steam on the PC front. They threw piles of cash at studios to put their games on the Epic Games Store for a period of exclusivity that lasts at least one year or more. Now, Epic may be going after that sweet, sweet mobile industry by launching their own mobile games store.

    This is according to a new report from MarketWatch.



    MarketWatch goes on to say that Epic will once again allow devs to keep 88% of earned revenues. This is in comparison to the 70% that Apple and Google allow for.

    Will this store be curated? Will...

  • Google Wants to Stream Assassin's Creed Odyssey to You Through Chrome

    Google Wants to Stream Assassin's Creed Odyssey to You Through Chrome

    The idea of streaming a game to an end consumer isn't a radically new idea. It's been around for years now in one form or another, including with current services like PlayStation Now or Nvidia's similarly named GeForce Now. But streaming a game through a browser? Well, that's a bit different and not really something that's been done on the scale of a AAA game.

    At least, it wasn't a thing until now. Google, of all companies, announced Project Stream earlier today. They're calling it a "technical test to solve some of the biggest challenges of streaming." Their first test is to see whether or not a game like Assassin's Creed...

  • Oculus Stealth Releases Gear VR Competitor Oculus Go

    Oculus Stealth Releases Gear VR Competitor Oculus Go

    Earlier today, Oculus VR released what looks to be the first major competitor to things like the Gear VR by Samsung and Daydream from Google. They're calling it Oculus Go and it starts at $199 (USD) for the 32GB model or $249 for the 64GB model.

    It's important to note that this is not a successor for the Oculus Rift. This is instead a standalone device that is about as powerful as a current-gen smartphone would be. The key difference here is that it doesn't require a phone to work. Hell, it doesn't seem to even require any connection to another device at all. It uses a Snapdragon 821 chipset (same as the Galaxy S7) but with higher clock speeds. It's also...

    Smaller YouTube Partners Get Screwed by New Policy

    To those of you who like to upload their videos to YouTube in the hopes of earning a few bucks here or there, this is important to hear. YouTube is about to implement some stricter requirements for being a Partner on the website. Partners, if you don't already know, allow uploaders to place ads on their videos. It helps YouTube to earn some money along with the content creators. It was a great way to monetize your work. Now, thanks to the work of some real assholes on the platform, YouTube is doing what it does best and is implementing a new system that will really put the screws to smaller channels. Before, to become a YouTube Partner, your channel only needed to have 10,000 lifetime views. The new re...

  • Google Developer Apologizes for Including Concentration Camps in Augmented Reality Game Ingress

    Niantic Labs, a Google subsidiary, has apologized for including concentration camps in their popular ARG, Ingress.

    Ingress essentially has players going around "capturing" popular locations and moments for their team. It's all done in the real world utilizing your phone's GPS to aid in your discovery and capture of locations (called Portals in the game) in your immediate area. It just so happened that some of these locations ended up being concentration camps.

    German news outlet, Die Zeit, reported that those places included Dachau, Sachsenhausen, and more.
