Google Stadia felt like a miracle the moment I loaded Destiny 2 onto a Pixel smartphone. Sitting in a lounge chair on a rooftop, I was shocked to see that I was able to move my old Hunter around in glorious 60 frames-per-second combat. On a phone!

But moments are fleeting, and latency on Google Stadia — the time difference between your finger pressing a button and the game reacting to it — lasts longer, and leaves a more lasting impression. In fact, it sometimes renders games unplayable. The service can and will likely improve, especially since the cloud-based game console has only just launched for early adopters in North America and Europe (Australian launch plans have not been specified). But that's the key difference between buying access to Stadia and just investing in gaming hardware. Google is selling a service; and services can be unreliable.

The voyage home: Japan's Hayabusa-2 probe to head for Earth

  The voyage home: Japan's Hayabusa-2 probe to head for Earth Japan's Hayabusa-2 probe will leave orbit around a distant asteroid and head for Earth on Wednesday after an unprecedented mission, carrying samples that could shed light on the origins of the Solar System. Science and Education Minister Koichi Hagiuda told reporters on Tuesday that the long voyage home would begin soon, with the probe expected to drop off its precious samples some time in late 2020. require(["inlineoutstreamAd", "c.

When played on a browser or 4K TV (via Google's Chromecast Ultra), horrendous latency plagued singleplayer and multiplayer games alike during the early review period in the US, giving a cinematic game like Shadow of the Tomb Raider the feel of an avant garde college grad project, replete with buggy, quick cuts. Precision shots were impossible in Destiny 2. Even walking in a straight line was a challenge in the otherwise lovely indie game Glynt, the console's only exclusive launch title.

On the phone, however, a totally different story emerges. While playing Destiny 2 in 60fps on a Google Pixel 3a XL over a Wi-Fi connection, there was almost no blurriness and barely any latency. Barring a few noticeable but quick skips during play, the images produced were fast and sharp.

Selena Gomez vows to fight gun violence forever after latest lethal U.S. school shooting

  Selena Gomez vows to fight gun violence forever after latest lethal U.S. school shooting Selena Gomez has vowed to fight gun violence forever after the latest mass shooting at a Los Angeles area campus left two teenagers dead. A 16-year-old gunman killed two students and left three other teens injured before turning the pistol on himself at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California on Thursday (14Nov19), and Selena has urged fans not to turn a blind eye to the incident. "I know people speak on this a lot because of how often it happens," she wrote on Instagram on Friday above a screenshot of an article from the Los Angeles Times about the shooting. "Please don't get numb to it. I'm not sure if I can do anything but I will never stop trying.

Yellowstone National Park, now a popular tourist destination, has been the source of three cataclysmic volcanic eruptions, occurring 2.1 million years ago, 1.2 million years ago, and 640,000 years ago. The event likely plunged the Earth into cold and relative darkness for years afterward.

It says it will continue to work to improve on the levels of diesel at open cycle gas turbine generators. "Our intention is, however, to use as little diesel as possible to manage our costs. Our diesel generators will therefore only be used in the event of emergencies to back up our other units."

These tests were conducted with my Wi-Fi at home, which gave me anywhere from 45 to 55Mbps download speeds, well above the 35Mbps Google says should give me 60fps 4K. They were also conducted at my office's Gigabit Ethernet and Wi-Fi service. In all cases, the phone outperformed the experience on browsers and TVs.

We tested six titles before launch: Destiny 2, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Red Dead Redemption 2, Mortal Kombat 11, Gylt and Kine. Destiny 2, a 2017 game, is Stadia's launch centerpiece, and the only other game included with the paid Stadia Pro subscription besides last-minute addition Samurai Shodown. In a last-minute effort to draw more gamers, over the weekend Stadia announced that it would be expanding its launch lineup from 12 to 22 games, many of them more than a year old.

The value of playing Destiny 2 on Stadia comes from developer Bungie's cross-saving feature, which allowed me to import my PlayStation 4 character into the Stadia version. More than a novelty, it's a convenient and efficient way to pick up and grind out a few levels in low-stakes gameplay while riding in a car. And you could even get in a few multiplayer rounds from the comfort of your bed.

Mike Whitney backs non-personal sledging in wake of James Pattinson suspension

  Mike Whitney backs non-personal sledging in wake of James Pattinson suspension Whitney fears cricket may be in danger of losing its bite in this new sanitised world. “As a fast bowler, sledging is part of your armoury,” he told Sporting News.Pictures: Most popular sports in Australia“I don’t remember any racial or personal taunts when I was playing, but running down the wicket saying, ‘I’m going to stick the next one under your chin’ is all part of the game.“Try telling Merv Hughes or Geoff Lawson or Len Pascoe they can’t sledge. I hope we don’t go down that road.“As long as it’s not personal, (sledging) is part of the game as far as I’m concerned.

In fact, Stadia's value is at its peak with a game like Destiny 2, and really no other launch title we tested. Red Dead's shooting and Mortal Kombat's ... well ... combat all functioned as expected, at least whenever input lag and streaming latency weren't an issue. But they're all otherwise the same old games, just sometimes more fuzzy and less functional as they were years ago.

At the moment, Stadia seems best suited for games that encourage continued, slow progression, especially ones that allow for some cross-platform features like Destiny 2's cloud saves. Stadia works great for the kind of player who needs to check in on their game throughout the day. There's a limited selection of games on Stadia that fit this bill.

Another disappointing discovery: games on the Stadia do not feature the graphical options offered on PC releases. Players won't be able to toggle resolutions, visual or texture effects or frames per second. When it comes to presentation, players are left at the mercy of developers and Google's servers.

Jack Buser, Stadia's director for games and business development, says the entire system will get better over time.

"The Stadia you see on day one will constantly evolve over time. We'll be adding new technology, new features, new games," he says.

"Over time, it's going to grow, we'll support more screens, because we're not limited. We're actually able to upgrade the technology within our data centres without having the customer buy new hardware."

Google promised to commit to Stadia, mentioning other successful products like Gmail and the Play Store to engender some faith. But it's also hard to ignore the literal digital graveyard of past Google efforts. A website called KilledByGoogle.com lists 156 services, 18 apps and 16 hardware ideas scrapped by the company.

Currently the only way to access Stadia, if you live in a supported country, is to buy the $US129 ($190) Premiere Edition, which comes with a Chromecast Ultra, Stadia controller (which hasn't had all its functions enabled yet) and a three-month subscription to Stadia Pro which allows 4K play and gives access to free games every month. You can play over Wi-Fi or Ethernet (not mobile networks) on a Chromecast, browser or Pixel phone, with more devices to be added at a later date.

As for playing games not included in the subscription, you still need to buy them separately, albeit at a discounted price. Stadia's free tier will launch next year, and it's only then that the platform's full potential might be seen: as an online storefront to access the latest games immediately and anywhere. No downloads, no patches nor updates. There's novelty and value in that.

Stadia is absolutely paving a new sort of information highway for gaming. My advice today is to stay in your current lane until they finish that work.
