As Google move ever closer to finally opening up Stadia to everyone, they continue building up their collection of streaming games with three titles out for April's Pro subs and two new titles announced for release. Time for another Stadia round-up.

For a reminder: right now you can get the Serious Sam Collection, Stacks On Stacks (On Stacks) and Spitlings free as part of Stadia Pro if you kept up your subscription. Thumper is also staying for another month, after it previously due to leave Stadia Pro on March 31 and Metro Exodus has now left Stadia Pro so anyone else would need to buy it.

Also announced recently are two more racing games that will be releasing on Stadia this year with: MotoGP20 which appears to be releasing on April 23 and Monster Jam Steel Titans with no date yet. Just today Google also announced two more games coming to Stadia this year. One of these is the musical Just Shapes & Beats which is already out on other platforms (desktop Linux included) and the manic looking 2v2 game Gunsport which is a 'First on Stadia' title:

Google still won't say when Stadia Base will be available to all, it's a bit ridiculous really that even now you still cannot even view the Stadia store without an account. Once they do say, we will let you know. Google might want to hurry up though, as not only are they facing off against NVIDIA GeForce Now which sadly isn't supported on Linux and same again with Microsoft's Project xCloud we also have Amazon set to enter the cloud gaming race with Project Tempo so competition is getting intense already.

It doesn't have to be their games, but it can be something that's released for the platform, using its features that Geforce Now simply can't have. Geforce now is not a platform for releasing games, it's a Windows VM renting service - they aren't releasing anything and no one is releasing for them. Approach is quite different by design.

Google's platform has a lot of potential, games designed to run exclusively in the data center could offer some pretty ground breaking experiences. Its what excited me the most about the Stadia announcement. But in its current state, Geforce Now is the better value. I hope google sticks to it and someday the promise of Stadia pay's off, but that could be years away. You gotta attract people to your platform before you can convince developers to go all in on a Stadia exclusive, or at least exclusive features, or even just porting a game to it.....

I'm still not counting google out, once they role out more features, lower tiers, and access to it without having to buy the bundle the cost of entry will be so low I'm sure a lot of people will sign up. But for the foreseeable future geforce now seems to be the better option.

Why would a game like Gunsport appeal to me as an exclusive title? How about something that requires expensive hardware to run.

I wanted to try Stadia out on my Phone but as said no Stadia Pro no access. Also you need Wifi i mean i get it it takes much Data but at least let me have the option to use Mobile Data if i want to. Even GeForce Now allows one to use Mobile Data if you want to so why not on Stadia?
