🎮 🗡️ ⚰️ Stadia isn't dead yet, but Google's recent history suggests Stadia users should prepare for the worst. Michael L Hicks 9 Feb 2021 0 Source: Michael Hicks / Android Central Google has a well-deserved reputation for killing any product or brand that hasn't become the leader in its field, mashing the leftover bits into a Frankenstein's monster with other projects, and rebranding the results with a snazzy new name.

Nintendo's newest game, arriving June 5, is a compilation of 51 family games, all classics of some … [Read more...] about Clubhouse Games is the family board game night on the Switch I needed
Epic Games has launched its legal fight against Apple after its hit battle royale title, Fortnite , was removed from the iPhone’s App Store in 2020. This ban prevents 116 million of its 350 million player base from accessing updates to the game, so Epic has taken the fight to the US and Australian courts to see it lifted. Epic allegedly broke its agreements with Apple after it allowed players to buy VBucks - paid in-game currency - through non-App Store channels, bypassing the need to give a cut of revenue to the tech giant. Kratos in Fortnite is a step too far - here's why Nvidia GeForce Now may let you play Fortnite on iPhones The best iPhone apps for 2021 Though it appears that Epic is looking for more than just getting Fortnite back onto iPhones, with this trial having the potential to see Apple’s walled-garden platforms finally opened up.
