If you've been playing playing the growing library of Stadia games on your phone, you're probably getting tired of finding ways to prop the thing up comfortably by now.

Achievement unlocked: Stadia finally supports achievements on web and Chromecast

When Google rolled out Stadia Pro in November, it quickly became obvious that the service was still partly a glorified beta. Many features that were promised to be ready at launch only slowly trickled into the platform, like Google Assistant support, Stream Connect, Buddy Pass, and family sharing.

Firmware update enables Stadia on some existing Chromecast Ultras (Update: Official)

Stadia was largely touted as a cloud gaming service that’s supposed to work across screens, but with a big asterisk. For streaming games on a TV, you need a Chromecast Ultra unit shipped inside the Founder’s or Premiere Edition packages, at least initially, while the existing Ultras were required to wait for an update. It appears that some Redditors got a new firmware that allows pairing Stadia controllers with those left-out dongles.

Google Stadia review: This could be big (Update: Three weeks later)

Cloud gaming isn't a new idea. Companies like OnLive (RIP) have been trying to make it work for the better part of a decade. Google's effectively limitless resources and software wizardry make it an ideal fit to work the kinks out of such a complicated problem, and with Stadia, it seems it may have done just that. In my time with the platform, streaming performance has been wildly impressive — but lackluster day-one game selection and plenty of half-baked features make for a rocky start for the fledgling gaming platform.

Stadia's store will support trials and demos, gifting, wishlists, pre-orders, and tons of other lists

Stadia launched in what what most would consider a very unfinished state, missing many plenty of the announced features like family sharing and broadcasting, or with very rushed and incomplete features like screenshots or a game store. Shopping for games initially required the smartphone app, but the store launched on the web last week, opening the door to a more convenient shopping experience. It also reveals a bit more about some of the marketing and categorization we'll see as the Stadia catalog fills out.

Darksiders Genesis hacks and slashes its way onto Stadia, now available for $40

Google revealed today that Darksiders Genesis is the latest game to arrive on the Stadia game streaming platform, and you can pick it up today for $39.99. This is a hack and slash game where you'll explore the dark events that laid the foundation for the first game in the series, which makes this release a prequel. Not only does the Stadia release of Darksiders Genesis align with the release on PC, but this is also the first title in the franchise that includes 2-player co-op. You can also play solo if you wish, but clearly, it will be more fun battling hordes of demons and angels with your friends.
