A Google Cloud Outage Has Knocked Loads of Games Offline Including ‘Pokemon Go’, ‘Fire Emblem Heroes’ and More

You really never realize how many things utilize these massive cloud platforms until there is an outage. When Amazon Web Services had a massive five-hour outage last year it seemed like it took half the internet with it. This afternoon, Google is experiencing issues with Google Cloud, and most (if not all) games and apps that utilize their cloud services are down. This includes Pokemon Go [Free], Fire Emblem Heroes [Free] and even parts of Snapchat [Free].

It’s hard to say how long Google Cloud will be having issues, but any sort of significant downtime like this from these massive cloud providers is very abnormal. If your favorite online games and other services aren’t working how they usually do this afternoon, chances are everything will be fine as soon as Google fixes things on their end. In the meantime, if you want to follow along as the outage unfolds, search Twitter for “Google Cloud” and any other word like “outage”, “status”, etc.

Thanks, @dohamelin!

[Deal Alert] New 2017 Fire TV with 4K and Alexa Voice Remote for $49.99 ($20 off)

Nowadays, there are several ways to watch content on your TV if you don’t like using a set-top box. Smart TVs are one way to go, but they do have some downsides. For one, you’re stuck with whatever software that comes with the TV, so you can’t pick the platform you like best or that’s most compatible with your devices. Then there’s also the fact that the software on your smart TV will probably become outdated much sooner than the actual hardware will, so you’re left with the prospect of buying an expensive new television just to get more up-to-date software.
