QuoteThanks to The Linux Foundation, I was able to attend and listen to the talk (the online event requires a ticket purchase)

That's nice, they're supporting your work (or at least did this time)?
I emailed them personally and asked.

Stadia Pro for November has Sniper Elite 4, Risk of Rain 2, Republique and new releases

The problem is their currently limited back catalogue of games to use, and they can only get so many games ported in a certain amount of time. The same happens on the likes of the PS4 with PSPlus and their monthly games, only it's less of an issue as Sony has tons more to pick from. Eventually, it will be less of an issue.

I don't get why? It has absolutely nothing to do with any external clients.

Quoting: KandarihuWhy did you think that we would be receptive to this?
I didn't, and I don't need you to "like" or want everything that I post. What a weird way to think. A lot of what we cover is industry news, like this.

Quoting: DedaleI was expecting CARRION to be in that list but maybe it is a tad too old ? You seemed to really like that game, Liam. I bought it on the recent sale and it is fun.
Hey, that is indeed a fantastic choice of game but I purposefully kept this list to the very-recent.

QuoteSo that all sounds pretty reasonable, some nice games coming to Google's Linux-powered streaming service Stadia. Where did it go wrong then? Well, they're currently enjoying a serious round of bad press and Stadia ended up trending all across Twitter, and not for positive reasons.

The problem was Alex Hutchinson, who according to their Twitter bio was the "Creative Director for Google Stadia" that tweeted out these thoughts:
Who's twitter bio? Stadias or Hutchinsons?
Honestly, it's feeling like you're jumping in here to cause a fuss. The context there is perfectly clear, the person is named and then I used a possessive pronoun to show the twitter account in question belongs to them.

Quoting: TheSHEEEPor just write they
That is what I did and what people are taking issue with.

If people choose to keep arguing over pronouns, we will lock the comments to clean things up and remove the people who keep doing it. Stop it. Arguments over it are not permitted, please read the rules. If something is unclear, use the corrections report function we made specifically for issues like this. There's a dedicated box for corrections below the article, and a dedicated button also on the comments box so you can use either. Thank you.

Sorry to hear you feel that way. You may have noticed that I originally used the correction box to avoid causing a fuss with remark about that, but since other readers stubbled over the same thing, I tied to explain the problem in more detail, in order to avoid confusion in the future. Should have stayed with the original idea of keeping it out of public comments. Apologies for that.
Nevertheless, if multiple people are having a problems understanding the meaning of your articles lately, then maybe you want to entertain the thought, that you did not express yourself as clearly as you thought.
I appreciate the calm reply here to explain a bit more, thanks for that. I did do some re-wording in the main article text that hopefully made things clearer. In future though, I would appreciate all to heed my words in my other comment and stick to the corrections reporting. Thanks.
