    1. Stadia game suggestions?

      We don’t have a console and I’m a full time Linux user so gaming hasn’t been the best of experiences for me.

      Today a Chromecast Ultra and two controllers arrived on our doorstep that my wife apparently ordered and wow is it awesome.

      Zero input lag, 1080p with the option to go 4K, and some solid options for games that are playable instantly.

      So far we have The Division 2, Grid, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Destiny 2, Monopoly, and a couple other indie games. There are some big titles coming - I’m most excited for FIFA and Madden - but I’m looking to find out if you guys have any suggestions for games.

      We are looking for some fun two player action.

      Also, if anyone else on here has Stadia, I’ll add you!

    2. How to cast internet videos to my Chromecast? (It's not as simple as it seems!) [SOLVED]

      Recently, I've been posting here about all sorts of theatre that's available for streaming during the pandemic lockdown. Sounds like fun! But when I actually try to watch some of it... I'm having technical problems.

      My Lenovo Yoga tablet won't cast from Chrome. At all. The option just doesn't exist in the Chrome browser on the tablet. The only way to cast anything is to open an app - but the videos I want to watch are on a webpage. In Chrome. Which doesn't have a casting option. Not helpful!

      So I go to my desktop computer. It can cast from Chrome to Chromecast. But the result is video only, because "casting tab audio is not supported on this device." I tried Googling that error message, but I ended up getting flummoxed. The Google Help pages don't even mention this error, and other tech blogs are too complex for me to understand.

      The Chromecast works fine. It accepts input (with sound) from other sources. It's just webpages (like YouTube.com and Vimeo.com) I'm having trouble with. I managed to watch one video last week, but I had to resort to installing the YouTube app to make it work. But not all the videos are on YouTube.

      Any ideas?

    3. What's your streaming equivalent to turning on the TV just to avoid doing your chores in complete silence?

      The trick is to find something interesting enough to make chores less boring, but not interesting enough to distract you to the point of making you stop what you're doing. I used to play Friends...

      I used to play Friends on repeat, but that grew old when I quite literally memorized every single episode.

      And my usual interests are way too interesting for me! (I wonder why hahaha).

      Does anyone have the same habit? What are your current preferences? (TV shows, podcasts, docuseries, whatever suits your boat...)
