Google Stadia: "The Takeaway"
Posted: Wednesday March 20th, 2019 by Woody

Yesterday, Taks and I watched the Google Stadia announcement from GDC. There's some cool concepts. But we came away with a couple of key responses to what we saw. Let me see if I can explain.

1. Tech demos and partner reveals are nice, but you had the time to plan. There should have been better visual representations of what was going on. And, something other than old game ports.

2. The speed promises are nice and all, but keep in mind, we're not all sitting on the fiber connectivity you tested on.

3. Are you sure some of the things you're promising are things that gamers/content creators actually want?

4. Can you do magic tricks or cardistry or something with your hands instead of flailing around up there on stage, like you hands are foreign things operating of their own volition?

The comic? I've got no room to talk. I've worked plenty of conventions. Talked in front of loads of people. I don't know what to do with my hands either. But that's what pucking fockets are for, am I right?
