GSY Video Stadia

Stadia is available since the end of 2019 and if we had so far not really covered the news on Google's cloud gaming platform, we will today offer you a lot of video content for different games. All these videos were captured in 1440p via Chrome and we are starting with 8 videos, new ones will be available in the coming days.

When we saw Liberated at Gamescom last year we were left a bit mixed about the project. We really liked the art and atmosphere but were not quite convinced by the gameplay and the animation in general. For once, the game will come out first on Switch on June 2, but we have almost an hour of the game to show you today so you can

Before Saints Row The Third Remastered and Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition, 2K released another remaster in the form of the Mafia: Trilogy. While the first game is actually not available yet as it will be a full remake (which makes sense considering its old age), Mafia II Definitive Edition and Mafia III Definitive Edition have been for almost 2 weeks now. The latter hasn't been given the remaster treatment (worse, it's even removed the Pro and X enhancements which had been added to the original release - but it should be fixed soon) but we still recorded some gameplay bits from the PC version in 1800p as it felt nice to finally be able to play the game smoothly. Mafia II on the other hand has been improved visually, with more detailed textures, better lighting effects and higher resolutions on consoles. It doesn't mean it's a solid remaster in every aspect as all console versions still struggle with the framerate at some point or another, which is a shame for a 10-year-old game. Oddly enough, the PS4 Pro version in the worst of the bunch, with interiors that witness massive drops in the low 20s. You won't be surprised to know that, though not perfect, the Xbox One X version is the one to go for if you own the 2 systems.

Someday You'll Return disappointed us a few weeks back and sadly Those Who Remain is not going to do any better. Developed by Camel 101, the game is not a looker, but its smart use of lighting effects makes it quite atmospheric at times. The problem is it's not enough to make up for the sluggish controls, the dated visuals and some of the game design choices. Performance is also very weird as the game never feels smooth despite what the FPS counters seems to indicate. We wish we could tell you its story is engaging enough but it simply didn't work for us. Gameplay wise it feels very awkward to walk around and to interact with the environment and the button prompts do not always indicate the good button you need to press (for example, game tells you you must press LT to run when it is indeed LB). Check out the first 20 minutes of the adventure and let us know what you think. We'd be curious to hear your opinion on the different key locations. We lost so much time looking for 2 of them as the place where they could be found made no sense whatsoever from our perspective. It partly explains why we felt so frustrated when playing the game.

Spiritfarer was already grated a (temporary) demo on Steam a little while back but we hadn't had the time to give it a go. Now that the demo is available on GOG, it's given us a chance to catch up and boy don't we regret it. The game looks absolutely gorgeous, with fantastic hand-drawn animation and charming art, it's a very relaxing experience and we truly hope the final product will hold on its promises. Here's the full demo in 4K and the second teaser of the game.

Destroy All Humans! is the second exclusive demo available only on GOG and we thought you might enjoy a jump back in time, back to 2005 when the game was originally released on Playstation 2 and the first Xbox. Inside, you will find our video of the full demo, so check it out and let us know what you think of the remake.

GOG put up a bunch of nice demos today, among which Destroy All Humans and Desperado III. We decided to try the latter with a gamepad as the game is also planned on PS4 and Xbox One and it works surprisingly well. Camera controls require a bit of getting used to, but other than that, it seems pretty efficient.

Dreamscaper is a new roguelike which will hit Early Access on Steam this summer. A demo has been available for a little while apparently, but we've just found out. Inside, you will find 2 videos of what is called the prologue, but if the game has piqued your interest, give it a try!

For once here's a remaster that is not going to be called lazy, apart from a bunch of lazy journalists who claim not much has been done to revamp the visuals. Saints Row: The Third Remastered is probably the most impressive remaster of the generation and a model to follow in the future. Obviously as it is not a remake, it cannot really compare to today's triple A open world games, but to be fair, Saints Row has never really been triple A so even a brand new episode would never look as good as, say, Red Dead Redemption 2. That being said, there is still a lot of impressive things going on here: better car and character models, improved particle effects, implementation of global illumination and HDR, with volumetric lightning and depth of field effects and much more our good friend John Linneman from Digital Foundry tackled in his latest video. We're preparing some Xbox One X videos of the game so you can see the best console version in action, but until then we have some HDR footage on PC.
Update: Xbox One X video added.

We're still doing our best to give you the most varied coverage of May releases and it is now time to take a look at Huntdown, a retro style action game we first told you about back in 2016. It is now out on PC (EGS), Playstation 4, Switch and Xbox One and it deserves all your attention. Find out why inside.
