  1. I was thinking the same about the pro sub @ZOK! Just hit the Stadia button while playing and there's a button labelled "Connection". In terms of me doing a speed test on the chromecast, if I cast a tab from Chrome on the computer to the device is that actually loading the page on the CC or simply streaming a video of the speed test running on my computer?
  2. Looking at this yesterday I made a note to check next time I was on the chromecast to see what my stream quality was like. I fired up Destiny and the HDR logo popped up on the TV. I opened the Stadia connection monitor to find that my connection quality was "fair" and while I had 5.1 & HDR, 4K was not supported on my connection. I have 76Mbps BT broadband and the chromecast is hard wired to the switch with a gigabit network. This computer is also connected in the same way and using the google speed test here https://projectstream.google.com/speedtest tells me my connection i
  3. Yeah, it closed a few days after the game came out as they ran out of stock.
  4. https://support.google.com/stadia/answer/9607891?hl=en-GB#zippy=%2Crequirements-for-k%2Crequirements-for-hdr 4K uses up to 20GB per hour.
  5. I got a premier edition with cyberpunk and it didn't come with any voucher for pro service, so not sure if the stand alone one does still. Check ebay as well as I got a second band new & sealed premier kit for £45 to use on another TV. I don't think everything has 4K support, but most of the big games seem to be in 4K.
  6. I don’t think there are any third party joycon which work like the real ones. They usually don’t have rumble or don’t work wirelessly or something.
  7. Didn’t the Apple TV app come out for the 9 series initially before later becoming available on the 8’s? They have form for doing that.
  8. Better to err on the side of caution and boost it if required than find that its going to finish too quickly and have to nerf things though right? I picked up the Ultimate Edition in the Stadia Christmas sale so now have all the expansions and full access to the season. Haven't had chance to log in since purchasing it though!
  9. We rewired the whole ground floor last year so I have the luxury of network points throughout the house for easy hook ups. My shed looks like this:
  10. They recently changed it so you can sign up for free without having to enter any credit card info, I think you get 30 minutes of pro access to test it out. There really is a huge difference between using it over wifi and when connected with a cable. I'm not sure how powerline compares to wired ethernet but I assume its like wifi with more chance for interference than a proper network cable.
  11. Well I've splashed out a whopping £2.39 for the first one. I have until the 6th of Jan to decide if I like it enough to grab the other two, thanks all.
  12. So is Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition the third in a trilogy then?
  13. I think there's a button to open HDR settings when playing on CCU, I didn't go into it though on my brief test and now my kit is wrapped up for xmas.
  14. If you were going to choose between Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition & Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration which would you go for?
  15. New games coming to stadia pro in Jan: There's also a Christmas sale on: I also found this: https://stadiadb.app It's pretty basic at the moment but at least you can search and its a bit faster than just browsing the stadia store.
  16. Im playing on Stadia. They had the old expansions in the Black Friday sale for £9.99 each but they’re back up to £20 a go now. Have you bought the Forsaken expansion to get the campaign? I’m mostly playing it as a single player experience and really enjoying it.
  17. I started playing the free version of this recently, and so far all I've done is the Cosmodrome with a Titan, and then started it again with a Warlock. I'm a little confused with what to do next. I appear to be rank 5 in the season, but I don't have the season pass or any of the expansions. I found a Polygon guide for new players in 2020 and it said to go through the original campaign. As far as I can tell though there's nothing to stop me getting the latest expansion and starting with the campaign in that expansion - is that right? Is there any point in getting the older expan
  18. Orzly Phone Mount Clip for use with Google Stadia Controller https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0898PJ5QM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabc_CCM2FbESZP8PY?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 Edit: Web app is working for me now as well.
  19. Apparently Stadia should work natively on iOS now assuming you've updated to iOS 14.3: https://9to5google.com/2020/12/16/google-stadia-is-now-fully-playable-on-ios-w-a-dedicated-pwa/ It's not working here for me, anyone else have it working?
  20. I had the same experience with the first few races with Grid on Stadia, really struggled with it. I just hooked up my new Stadia pad to the laptop with a USB cable and the first race I did I came first by miles. I don't know if it was bluetooth lag before or if I just fluked the race this time, but it felt like I was just playing a local game.
  21. Ubisoft+ is now available on Stadia in the US: https://9to5google.com/2020/12/14/ubisoft-plus-arrives-google-stadia/ I don't need this yet (Cyberpunk will keep me busy for a long time I bet) but I might take a look in the new year assuming it makes it over here. At the very least that Fenyx Rising game looks to be interesting.
  22. The standard thing is just the pad for £60. Im already looking at picking up another premier kit from eBay for around £50. I was looking for chromecasts and they sell for around £30-40 used so seems a no-brainer if you want to use it on a second tv and have a spare controller for multiplayer. Edit: I just looked again and saw one for £40 plus postage so have ordered it. I guess I’m all in on stadia then
  23. Destiny 2 is free to play. Find it in the store and the buy button says “Play on Us” or something.
  24. Have you tried Destiny 2? And yes, any games you purchase are available with or without the pro subscription (but capped at 1080p without the sub)
