Google wants its upcoming game-streaming service, Stadia, to up the ante for live-streamed games on YouTube, but Google didn’t address the many ways its system could lead to harassment, demonetization, and other problems for creators One of Stadia’s most exciting developments for YouTube creators is “Crowd Play,” a feature that allows creators to play games like NBA 2K19 with their viewers. It seems like a good idea on the surface, but Google’s presentation didn’t mention any potential harms that could come from Crowd Play. For just over an hour, multiple members of Google’s Stadia team and YouTube’s head of gaming, Ryan Wyatt, spoke about the benefits Stadia had for players and creators. Gaming is more seamless, Google Stadia chief Phil Harrison claimed; Wyatt told YouTubers it would open a whole new world of interaction and engagement with fans. Neither Harrison nor Wyatt touched upon one of the most important questions: how easily can … [Read more...] about Google Stadia wants YouTubers to play with fans, but that could leave creators open to attacks

Article Contents1 Free1.1 Apps1.2 Games1.3 Icon packs & customization2 Sale2.1 Apps2.2 Games2.3 Icon packs & customization We're through January and MWC is right around the corner. To celebrate the new month, I have another list of app sales for you all. It's a lengthy one today, but it features a few games that are personal favorites of mine — particularly Sword & Sworcery and Planar Conquest, two titles that I install on every phone. My problem with the former is the lack of support for non-16:9 aspect ratios. On my Pixel 2 XL, for instance, there's a big black bar off to the side. My eyes start to overlook it, but just as an FYI. Noodlecake really should update the game, but that doesn't take away from the fact that it's really fun and one of my favorites to play on Android.

Check out more fun games here!15 best RPGs for Android15 best adventure games for Android A Dark RoomPrice: $1.99DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYA Dark Room is a fairly simple and straight forward texting game. You start in a cold, dark room. Players build a fire and then kind of go from there. It's a bit slower than we would normally like and there aren't a ton of options starting out. However, a little patience nets you a fairly entertaining game. You slowly build a shelter, traps, and other stuff to survive. It won't win any awards for aesthetics, even for a text game. On the other hand, it only costs $1.99, has no in-app purchases or ads, and it plays perfectly fine offline. It's a good place to start for texting games. DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY Facebook MessengerPrice: FreeDOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYFacebook Messenger is a weird entrant on this list, we know. However, it does let you play games over text with friends or by yourself. The games are rarely texting games.
