I'm with Sqrage on this one. Business people on a social site? Facebook does it too, it's just that Google tells you they're doing it. :)

Has anyone else ever noticed that Google is constantly trying to do what EVERYONE ELSE is doing? Any time some huge internet wonder comes out, eventually Google has it's own version.

They were just a bloody search engine!

I can't wait for Bing to start doing this. Bing+, the new and improved stupid thing of tomorrow!

If I recall correctly, Google actually made a statement about why they do all these kinds of side projects. Aside from motivating employees by allowing them to work on whatever they want in some of their time, Google hopes to gain from minor improvements here and there. They want to build a phone OS, so that phone OS's will in general improve (and therefore expand the market for people using Google to search). They make their own browser/netbook OS/netbooks so that competition will again, improve the market.

In my honest opinion, it's a very smart decision.

    My boyfriend is super into Bethesda modding so I'm probably going to join him in that for a bit, then move on to making mobile/browser games.

    I mostly just want to look at my old projects because I know I posted uploads on here somewhere.
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    My one game was basically Among Us but you sabotaged an entire medieval city simulated drastically inefficiently with dynamic NPCs :S
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    of course I never finished it x D

    xD
  • jonas jonas:
    I think you can still run the original game, just there's a chance your map won't work with the newer patches
  • jonas jonas:
    what development framework have you been looking at for mobile development?
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm currently creating (as a hobby) a space invaders like game for mobile using Xamarin, after starting a few larger projects that I also may not have finished :rolleyes::p

    If I could use something Python compatible it would save me some learning
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    But Unity might be easiest
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    looking at old posts here makes me happy. Makes me be all like "wow I was pretty smart in 2009"
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    mostly failing at life through adulthood really demotivated me for a while
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    ....what I don't get is why the fuck they would force us to permanently convert to a version of the game everyone fucking hated : \
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    Raid Shadow Legends texture pack smh
  • jonas jonas:
    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.
