Video Game Definition of the Week: “Skins”

Every week the EFG staff will be defining a gaming term that is either confusing or ill-defined. Please leave a comment with any terms you are confused by and we will try to include them in future editions!


This week we chose the term “Skins.” Free to play games like Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Rocket League are dominant right now and this dominance shows no signs of slowing down. All of these free games make up for their incredibly low price by selling what are often referred to as “Skins.”

A “skin” is a kind of item that players can acquire in games. They change the appearance of the players avatar (the character on the screen that represents the player). Skins can be as simple as a change in color scheme (often referred to as a Palette Swap), or as complex as a new avatar with different lighting effects and animations. Most companies are very careful to make sure these skins don’t effect the actual gameplay though. The characters will still play the same. They will just look different doing so.

You can also look at our other video game definitions from previous weeks here!

Google Stadia – 5 Things Parents Should Know

Google held a 1-hour press conference today as part of GDC 2019. The livestreamed event gave viewers the first real glimpse at their first real foray into the world of gaming. We don’t know all of the final details, but one thing is for sure. They aren’t selling a console that will sit on anyone’s entertainment center. They are selling access to Google’s massive data centers using the power of the internet. In short, They will be keeping the hardware at their place.

Below is a list of five things parents need to know about Google Stadia after the first press event.

How does Stadia work?

Google Stadia is a streaming service that gives players access to games across the internet. Moreover, it will (ideally) allow for players to play high fidelity games on computers, phones, and tablets with very little processing power. Phil Harrison, a VP at Google, described Stadia as a place that no-one would be excluded from. This means that it won’t only play on Google products. It will work on any device that will run a Chrome browser.

What about that Google Controller?

Pictures of a (hideous) Google controller were flying around the web for the last few weeks. Google did unveil a new controller, but the Stadia controller looks much better. It also includes some interesting features. First, the controller connects with Googles data centers directly via wifi. This will help reduce input lag and make games run smoother. Second, the controller includes a capture button that will allow players to capture gameplay directly from the data center and upload it to YouTube quickly. Lastly, the controller features Google Assistant integration. Players can use the controller to ask the google assistant for help in a game and it will queue up a YouTube video to play that directly addresses where you are in the game.

Google Owns YouTube. Will there be YouTube integrations?

Yes. One of the key features of Google Stadia is what they referred to as “Instant Access.” Players will be able to watch a YouTube video featuring a game, and then press a button on screen that says “Play Game.” The game will then load in their browser in around 5 seconds. No downloads or loading screens required.

Stadia will also have interesting features for content creators. They will be able to allow their viewers to queue up to compete against them in multiplayer games. They’ll also be able to share challenges with their viewers by sharing links directly to their status in the game they were playing. In fact, those save states will be sharable on social media like Facebook, Twitter, and Discord.

How much is it going to cost?

Google didn’t say anything about the price yet. Speculation is that you will either buy the games at full price through the Google Play Store (or something similar), or that Stadia will have a subscription fee. Fortunately, we should hear about this soon as it is set to release later in 2019.

What about the games?

The only games we know for certain are coming to the platform at this time are Doom Eternal from id Software and Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey from Ubisoft. Neither of these are family friendly games, but we can expect that the lineup will expand as we get closer to the services launch

Bonus Fun Fact!

Stadia is the plural form of Stadium.
