With the Stadia streaming service from Google launching on November 19th for those with the Founder's Edition or Premiere Edition, they're finally revealing what will be available.

It will only have 12, yes 12, titles at launch and a few of them are sequels. They are: Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Destiny 2, GYLT, Just Dance 2020, Kine, Mortal Kombat 11, Red Dead Redemption 2, Thumper, Tomb Raider + Rise + Shadow and lastly Samurai Shodown.

The only title you will get included in the Stadia Pro subscription (three months free with the Founder/Premier Edition) is Destiny 2, all others you have to pay for. If you stop paying for Stadia Pro, you lose access to any free games claimed and only keep those you've paid for normally.

Google said more will be coming before 2019 is up like Borderlands 3, Darksiders Genesis, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and more although the dates of them are "Subject to Change". You can see the announcement about them here.

This Debian Linux and Vulkan powered streaming service certainly has an uphill battle to win over gamers and this launch line up, honestly, doesn't seem all that great. With the leaks about Steam Cloud Gaming (#1, #2), Stadia may have an even bigger fight coming.

We have a Stadia Founder's Edition pre-ordered to cover it here, although our thoughts on how Stadia runs on Linux may be quite delayed as they ship it out based on order date. Checking back on it, ours is saying to be delivered by November 27th.

tmtvlWithout downloads?! What is this, play-by-post?

My first Steam game was Skyrim. When I had installed it from DVD, Steam insisted on downloading such a huge "patch" that I couldn't play the game this evening. (I wasn't aware automatic downloads can be disabled.) I had a full DVD and all I needed to play, but still couldn't.
I guess that's what they're talking about. In the end, probably more data crosses the line than with a preinstalled game, so it doesn't help people with "data plan".

What a waste of time, having to pay for the service, having to connect using your phone. I hate trying to stream via Wireless it don't work out properly for me, hence why I prefer to be fully wired in. Why release Stadia if it ain't even finished? It's like trying to bury a corpse when the hole is not big enough for the coffin. OK so maybe just maybe they wanted to show off what they have built already, but I can see loads of bug reporting on the horizon. I'm happy with Steam at least I know it works on whatever Linux OS I choose and if there is a problem with a game I know that Steam will fix the problem straight away.

NezchanAnd not a single one I'm interested in. Which saves me the FOMO, I guess.

The price and content of the subscriptions ensures i will never feel FOMO also i bc i dont believe fomo is a thing and if it has become a thing we need to destroy social media now.

Oh, poor innocent. It was a thing before social media even existed, it just didn't have a catchy acronym.

really because never ever heard of it until this generation not going into a rant about soy extra but its great people are more aware of issues but fomo should not be a thing because fuck it nothing is that important. The only thing that matters in life is your health and your family everything else is fluid.

For me, fear of missing out expresses itself mostly in always wanting to be the last person to leave (a place/party) and trying to maintain high availability/flexibility for anything that comes up, and has nothing whatsoever to do with social media. If people use it in relation to consumer goods and "exclusives" then no, that tends to have the opposite effect on me. I don’t feel thrilled about owning something others don’t, and if a company is selling something in limited numbers I assume in most cases it’s either not good enough for ongoing sales or artificially expensive; either way I’m happy to "miss" it. But collector types have always been a good source of low-effort profits for companies willing to cash in on people’s ego.

SalvatosI don’t feel thrilled about owning something others don’t
I do, but it's perhaps the opposite of fear of missing out. I like, when I have the money, getting things made by local craftspeople, tailors or whatnot that are specifically for me and to my personal weird tastes. So like, I find nice purple fabric and get shirts made from it--they cost a bit more but they last forever and they're just how I want. I have a very sturdy leather belt which is dyed purple and tooled with celtic knotwork, with a cool bronze buckle I picked up somewhere in France. Nobody else in the world has it; it's my belt. Stuff like that. I feel like everyone should be able to have their own personal cool stuff in their own personal style, rather than having to worry about "missing out" on some homogenized stuff that everyone is doing.
