Behind the Sopa Box: Time's up for the others

So before I get started and actually talk about things can I just point out that last week's SOPA BOX was the hardest one to actually write in a long time. It's bloody hard to write a fake angry blog over 700 words and maintain the kind of...

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 ...

 
 
 
 

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...

 
 
 

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...

The Sopa Box: Preaching to the choir

Today I hope you'll join me as I rant about possibly the most stupid issue that's bugging me. An issue  I think really says a lot about  an attitude the video game industry has developed. Or at least the AAA industry has dev...
