One of the problems with mobile gaming isn't so much the games themselves, but the download sizes. This holds true with not just your initial update of a big game, but also the subsequent updates that games and apps get that also are big.

However, if you don't have unlimited data, the last thing you want to do is chew up a large chunk of your data downloading a 1GB game update.

A couple of months ago Twitch bought Curse, which started off as a communication suite for gamers to use while in game but has since expanded greatly in what that platform provides.
