7:02 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!I figure the Stadias gonna flop.

7:03 PMAndrew EisenOh, we’re going to talk Stadia.

7:03 PMaddictedtochaosMy handwriting used to be very neat. Not anymore.

7:04 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!I mean…It sounds very VERY similar to those old school systems that were trying WAY too hard to be the next big thing…Kinda like the 3DO or the Pippin computer-console-thingamajigger.

7:06 PMaddictedtochaosAt least you last name doesn’t have 11 letters.

7:06 PMSusanne Christat least they think urs is real xD

7:08 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!I mean,if you look at the ads for the Stadia,it sounds VERY similar to the Jaguar or the 3DO or even the Pippin computer thingamabobble-that similarity does NOT bode well for the Stadia.

7:09 PMSusanne Christchrist-mas lol

7:10 PMد. عبد العزيزstadia will be a fail because 2/3 in world are suffering the weakness if internet

7:12 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!I’ve seen the ad campaign for the Google Stadia…and I think it’s gonna flop,just being honest.It looks like the Genesis,the ads promote it to be the next NEO-GEO,yadayadayada-this Stadia’s a mess.

7:13 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!Anyone else agree with me?

7:14 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!I can’t even get a Steam account because I’m on mobile…Gee,thanks Steam-leave out your mobile users why don’tcha?!

7:18 PMpsychadelic snakeyeah let me just pay a monthly subscription AND also pay full price for video games

7:22 PMWarren Lewishey guys!

7:23 PMaddictedtochaosIt is absolutely a choice, we can choose not to get Stadia at all.

7:26 PMpsychadelic snakepeople still play those games Because of mods

7:26 PMAndrew EisenThey’re also good.

7:28 PMaddictedtochaosSony owns Ghostbusters not Paramount

7:56 PMaddictedtochaosThat’s the key it’s their stuff. People should have to know that ripping off someone’s IP is going to lead to a cease and desist.
