Google Stadia "Buddy Pass" anyone?

I'm a fool. Partially. I bought a Chromecast Ultra three weeks ago so I 
could do some geeky screen sharing and video streaming. I saw it supported 
the Stadia game controller. Hadn't played any games in a while and I 
thought this was interesting; A Chromecast Ultra can play games if you 
have this controller? Ok. I'm intrigued and bought a controller.

Worthless without an "Access Code" you get if you buy both as a bundle, 
which a long chat support session later, seems I can also get if someone 
who has one can share a "Buddy Pass" with me.


Was just looking for something fun to play with while working from home... 
on Linux servers, using a Debian 10.3 laptop.. (sucky game machines, but 
now it's kinda on topic)

While Stadia does have some rough edges the concept is pretty neat, having a way were if you just want to kill some time and quickly play something you can with no real hardware to keep up, no worrying about software updates/patches. The only real requirements is a decent internet connection and a supported phone, computer (Windows, macOS, Linux, ChromeOS, even almost works on FreeBSD*), or a TV with a Chromecast Ultra. When playing on a computer the Stadia controller even becomes optional. * Hangs at the speed test but if I installed the Linux version of Google Chrome or used wine rather than using Chromium it might work

I just wiped an older I7 Laptop, maybe I put something like Nexuiz on it instead of a dev environment? Anyone playing with things like Lakka OS? http://www.lakka.tv
