GameCenter is one of the fews things I actually like about IOS. How is it poorly executed?

The majority of the games use it only for leaderboards and achievements. There are only a handful that actually use it how it was meant to be (online multiplayer with your friends)

That's the fault of the developers. I noticed over time many are opting for Facebook multi-player or they're only log in. Ascension and a few other games recently changed it for god knows what reason.

I personally like the achievements and points system to compete with friends on single player games.

It's already on Google Play, but for some reason, it doesn't show up in searches. Click the link in the article.

Does anyone know if the Chromecast that was just announced also does device mirroring, or is it just browsing? That could make Google Play Games really really really (Have I said "really" enough yet?) interesting?
