Well I'm just in one of those moods where


 
 
 

Well next Weeks C-blog from me will be my most controversial, divisive, angry and outright hostile C-blog I've ever written. I hope I stick the landing with this one because boy do I not want to have a week of upset or angry comments on it.

 
 
 

I really feel like sometimes events converge to make my Cblogs perfectly timed. Xbox live goes down yesterday and annoys a load of people the day before my Cblog about not trusting MS

 
 
 

The Sopa Box: You've not changed Microsoft.

So this week it's time to get angry at Microsoft.First there is their messy unorganised user interface on the ........... PPPffftttt what a poser just ripping off Jim Sterling who did talked about Microsoft recently What do you mean...

 
 
 
 

#ScreenshotSaturday My first ever Victory In a campaign run of Space Tyrant. The armies of the Rabbit people now rule the galaxy!


 
 
 

One of the games I've been anticipating for a while is going to be out in 2 weeks time I've found out. From what I've seen of footage this is an indie game to keep an eye on, it's somewhere between the Orwell games & Papers Please.


 
 
 

And another day another Steam game with a Cryto Miner, luckily this time the developer was so incompetent the game won't run on Nvidia graphics cards at least.



 
 
 

FOV: E3 2018

So no Sopa box this week I wanted to take a look at E3 2018 with a bit more nuance and look at some of the good and bad things in my opinion that I saw from E3 2018. Yes I get E3 has long past but with so much in one go and so much co...

 
 
 
 
 
 

The SOPA Box: Funbux are betting chips.

One of the recent claims being presented and loopholes that a number of companies have been looking at to deal to gambling laws is putting an extra step between the customer and being able to buy the lootbox directly. This is often a ...

 
 
 
 

Holy crap there were apparently more devs trying to scam people with fake TF2 items....



 
 
 

Just a heads up / warning: Seems a developer snuck a potential virus or crypto currency miner into the game (NOTE: NOT THE DEV I BLOGGED about today who is NOT a scummy dev like the one for this title)



 
 
 
 
 

So here's a bit of B roll I went back and captured of quite an interesting indie game I played and finished the other day. It's all about playing a Grim Reaper and setting up Final Destination styled / Rube Goldberg esc sequences of events to kill ppl



 
 
 

The SOPA Box: Asshole at your service

With fairly recent events coming up in relation to developers and the idea of community feedback it seems like an idea time to talk about such things.A long time ago I looked at a game called Glitchrunners. I saw it at a show with its...

 
 
 
 

Behind the Sopa Box.

Ok I know people say when you explain a joke it loses some of the comedy value and I know this really is going to be quite an "inside baseball" esc C-blog so I don't expect many people to be that interested in this.All that said I fel...

 
 
 
 

WOOOO new Monthly Murderer


 
 
 

Oh hey a new Teen Titans series...... oh........ uh...... I mean did they mean it to look like a less appealing copy of Suicide Squad's Style?



 
 
 

The Sopa Box: No really Fuck the Oscars

So I've poured a lot of scorn over the video game industry over the past however many Sopa Box Cblogs I've done. And I plan to pour a lot more scorn over the industry too. However today is different, today I come out in defence of the...

 
 
 
 

sharing this because coverage of devs doing good deserve recognition



 
 
 

Well according to my scheduled C-blogs my next one will release on Wednesday. It's not going to be as controversial as the previous two, I'm only crapping on Disney after all

 
 
 
 
 

Lol part of the reason Colonial Marines was a mess with awful Alien AI was a spelling mistake....Oh Randy



 
 
 

Well a new SOPA BOX is up. It's about Lootboxes. Look I've got 2 more on lootboxes in to come because I wrote them already and I am going to be spacing them out a little bit but I didn't want them just sitting there not seeing the light of day.

 
 


About Dwavenhobbleone of us since 8:33 AM on 06.19.2012

A qualified Environmental Chemist who happens to live in a fairly dense city with no real environment or chemistry industry.

I review indie games on another blog and you'll see them pop up here if I think the review is a good or interesting one (along with a shameless bit of self promotion)

I also operate another blog reviewing films and I mean t pick that back up when I can.

I've been gaming since the SNES days. I've been in the pro scene before for tribes 2 but hate the present pro scenes and have no interest in going back into it.

I tend to get into quite a few Betas and love ones without NDA as it means I can write about them. I have even beta tested an xbox 360 game in my time (and no not a normal public Beta one )

In gaming I'm normally the guy looking at the shelf below the AAA titles first to see if there are any great hidden gems.

My gaming drug of choice: Timesplitters in any flavour (Why won't you make Timesplitters 4 Crytek, why ????? I need my fix of insanity )
