Forums - Gaming Discussion - Google Play Pass game subscription service goes live for $4.99 per month

Not interested in this as I aint on Stadia.

And the "slippery slope" argument will each day lose credibility.

duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

Around the Network

Google Play Pass includes some good mobile games and ported classics, but most of these games are quite old and have been on sale many times:

So if you are into mobile gaming, you probably already have a lot of these games (which is of course a similar issue for most other game subscriptions on PC and consoles).

On the other hand, Apple Arcade has a lot of brand new games. I'm currently playing these new games on my iPad Pro:

- Oceanhorn 2 (would probably cost around $9 / €9 like its predecessor, which I liked very much)

- Jenny LeClue (costs almost $20 on Steam, almost backed the Kickstarter for $15 a few years ago)

- Tangled Tower (probably around $10 on Steam, GOG and Switch, when it is getting released there at October 10th)

- Shantae and the Seven Sirens: Part 1 (awesome preview to the new unreleased Shantae game)

- Sonic Racing (looks great, plays okay, I can't rate balancing so far)

- Grindstone (I love the humor and animations of this casual puzzle/strategy game)

Will be checking to see if it works with my Chromebook.

My Switch, Xbox (with Gamepass) and PC eat up enough of my time. Any other gaming console/service needs to up their game to compete for my free time.
