Stadia Wave Podcast #1- Google Stadia Connect: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Published

on

On the inaugural episode of the Stadia Wave podcast, the boys break down the most recent Stadia marketing initiative, the Stadia Connect. Surprising to say the least, Google outlined their release schedule for the upcoming year in games, dropping a lot of hot takes and a few unexpected franchises. Ty, Tony, and Raheel take to the mics to share their thoughts, expectations, and disappointments on the announcements of the future of streaming.

To put it simply, the most recent Stadia Connect left the gang with more questions than answers, although there were a few highlights that stayed in the forefront of their minds. First up, the highlight of the conference was the announcement that Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to Stadia. Google is getting support from the big boys!

There were a few low points as well, namely the lack of exclusives on the console. Why Orcs Must Die?

The discussion ends with a conversation about the areas of opportunity for Google Stadia in the future, as the possibilities are endless! Could we see a Google-owned development studio? What markets is Google ignoring?

Catch the Stadia Wave podcast when it releases on the second and last Fridays of each month. Stay wavey!

Stadia Wave Podcast #2- Don’t Call Stadia Netflix for Games

Published

Stadia Podcast

This week, the Stadia Wave Podcast boys are back to challenge the long running myth that Google Stadia is “Netflix for games.” The conversation veers from Vudu to Hulu and all the way to Gamefly, but somewhere along the line a better analogy is created. Regardless, everyone is still left relatively in the dark about what is really happening and what the platform means for the future.

Better yet, the gang discusses their dream subscription service for the Stadia and end up with some interesting and surprising answers. Raheel somehow finds a way to bash Pokemon in the process and a Google first party game service is naturally thrown into the mix. Could Bethesda bring Doom and the Elder Scrolls franchises to a TV near you? Could Steam games find their way to the platform (God, help our wallets).

At long last, the guys wind down by pondering a way to solve the marketing void left by Google’s corporate communication plan. Gone are the days of print adds and TV commercials, marketing now lives in the age of the influencer. Is there a better way to launch the platform? Who is the target audience? What’s the best way to reach them?

Tune in on the second and last Friday of every month to catch the boys as they offer their thoughts and hot takes on the upcoming Google Stadia platform. Although news has been slow, there is always something to discuss on Stadia Wave. Find the podcast on Podbean or, as always, keep that dial tuned to Goomba Stomp.
