The true question that should come from the Game Award. Who wore this style of dress better?


 
 
 
 

You know I had a great laugh recently. I got a notification from each of the dating sites I'm signed up to saying some-one had tried and failed to login in. Whoever tried to log-in must have been very desperate to consider pretending to be me.

 
 
 

So advice to indie developers: Do not try and defend Microtransactions by equating them to having to buy a console to play games on. You know who you are if you ever come across this. (Which admittedly is unlikely)

 
 
 
 
 

Really good video worth a watch to see how EA got to the point it has recently with the Lootbox bullshit.



 
 
 

I played some more Paladins. I don't get it. How can a free to play game have a better community that's more capable of creating a working team comp than Overwatch?

 
 
 

So I've just learned that "Dear Esther Live" is a thing. A live show touring the UK which consists of Live narration, a live playthrough of the game and a live performance from the composer of the music. So basically a lets play + bits as a live show


 
 
 

The Sopa Box: Pay more or be an NPC

So last week I said about how people are supporting the predatory practices that allow AAA companies to prey on the so called Whales to exist by merely buying the games. This week with the release of Battlefront II (of Battlefront po...

 
 
 
 

So small bit of info. There may have been some-one attempting to breach Steams security / spread Malware via steam by getting putting out a patch for a dead game



 
 
 

Remember to vote in the Steam Awards. I've voted and I think I picked the best option for the free vote / make your own category option. It was either this or Best game with a Catgirl in it.


 
 
 

To put in context how bad Battlefront 2 being number 2 in the UK is it's worth pointing out for the month it was released Homefront 1 was number 1 in the UK sales charts. That still didn't save Kaos studios from going bankrupt.

 
 
 

Totally forgot last Friday was Monthly Murderer Club day for those who happen to own a certain video game.


 
 
 

#Dogtoid is seemingly awakening the ancient evil buried in the site known only as Mr Catstructoid to try and reclaim today as Caturday.


 
 
 

Holy fuck, crunching the numbers so far EA's company value has dropped by over 3/4 of a Billion Dollars


 
 
 

The Sopa Box: Stop enabling Whales.

(Pixel Art Hitch Hikers Guide Whale from happy_tree_12 ) So this one is going to be unpopular but then people yelling at me or being angry isn't something new. If you do take serious umbrage with what I'm saying here kindly give ...

 
 
 
 

I think this best represents a lot of peoples view towards Lootboxes with cosmetic items rather than what EA wanted to do.


 
 
 

So the "EA developer" who so many places reported on getting death threats (without showing they'd actually received any) may not even be an EA developer or member of staff Kotaku have found out, link in comments

 
 
 

EA have been so shitty I think it should, from now on, be called Battlefront poo

 
 
 

"Lootboxes aren't gambling because you always get something" So if Casinos give you a free cup of water after every bet does that stop it being gambling because you still are getting "something" ?

 
 
 

If an EA executive is reading could they kindly do the following. Print out this image; Roll it up nice and tight to a point; wrap it in barbed wire; take a lemon and squeeze some of the juice over this and then ram the whole thing up their rectum


 
 
 

It seems we have some Spiders taking over Qposts.


 
 
 

Hearing that EA has obfuscated it's refund system by removing the refund button. Not that recent apparently but it MAY have happened not long after the Battlefront II Beta


 
 
 

For various reasons on the Discord we ended up on the subject of wallets. I think I confused Matt a bit with mine. It's Marvel's Iron Man, and no it's not a knock off it's actually a proper Marvel Licensed one


 
 
 

While Kotaku is getting upset that Cuphead wasn't racist / didn't address the racism of the style it was meant to be done in I'm just here chuckling at the idea of them ever learning about the origin of part of Uncharted / Tomb Raider



 
 


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 )
