I mean I’m not gonna stop visiting Youtube, searching with google, or using GMail. Gaming isn’t some sacred space.
Hence why you don't stand on the moral ground if you want to express a choice. Because otherwise... well there's a lot of thing you'll need to check in priority.
Best part is that the next game after that actually had dedicated servers, so it worked.
You know that "console war bullshit" you claimed? Yeah, you're not helping.
i really disagree.
One day you will learn that responding to people ≠ console war bullshit
Google's competition is no joke. They've been here for decades and established.
I don’t know if they’re anti-consumer any more than any other company. They have the best customer support of any major electronics company. Their products are expensive in and of themselves, yes, but that’s not “anti consumer”.
One day you might learn that pointing out inconsistencies is not console war bullshit.
the saudi app that the op mentioned in his rundown.I don’t know if they’re anti-consumer any more than any other company. They have the best customer support of any major electronics company. Their products are expensive in and of themselves, yes, but that’s not “anti consumer”.
They are absolutely anti competitive, and they need to be taken down a notch. Hopefully Spotify’s suit in Europe comes to bite them in the ass.
Greedy, every single company is greedy. No company isn’t.
Foxconn is a big fucking issue, and far be it from me to trivialize it. But every company is using Foxconn. I can’t use “uses Foxconn” as a point of differentiation.
What’s the Absher app?
Didn’t Cook say Apple is looking into taking it down? And Google said “We won’t take it down?”
You know this post literally doesn’t make any sense, right?
I’m sorry for missing your post (got caught up in the heated arguments lol).If you like Chrome but hate Google I suggest you try Vivaldi or Brave (the first puts emphasis on user customization, the second on privacy), both run on Chromium (which is open source) so you'd keep most of the things you like about Chrome without the bad things. Brave is also available on mobile.
Why ? If anything, they're the only one that seems to have the cash to give the console market a shakeup ? Then again, if we're talking about a moral ground well yes, I agree... but then again, none of the big 3 stands well there.
Sure, but at the same time I wish they'd put more money into making sure the open-source backbone of their services was sustainably maintained. They're hardly the only one that uses it, mind, but they're certainly one of the largest.
Yeah, the thing that gets me is that the mobile play landscape has been so fully ravaged by a race to the bottom that even $5-15 is considered too much to pay for a game on a phone now. Everything is long-term services and microtransactions. The idea that Google trying to take on the "big" console market will work out in the best interests of developers or consumers doesn't really match up with the way the other markets they have a stake in have gone.
They really didn’t and to say otherwise is just trying to rewrite history. I was in my late teens when Microsoft enter the game and there was never this sense from gamers that they were a morally corrupt company.
Idk OP you're kinda underselling how evil Google is as an American tech giant by shoehorning in your hatred of the people's republic of China.
So your answer is to add to the “evil”?
There’s no answer. Every choice a consumer makes is a bit (or a lot) or a compromise. You choose what you feel is the best, others do the same. I think people are getting on your case for your kind of high-horse stance more than anything.
