Word of advice for people in or wanting to be in Journalism; saying you're considering lawyering up due to you considering a widow retweeting someone as a threat and slander is not a good look. Especially when it would have been her wedding anniversary!


So those codes for Assassins Creed Odyssey that you can acquire from packs of Totinos, well the codes are on the outside of the packaging so you might find out someone has already activated your code if you do buy them lol


Yesterday was just a normal day on the Dtoid Discord


Some company decided to latch onto Fortnite's success to try and sell Debit Cards to kids. Because of course they did. And Snapchat apparently ran the advert (Source of the info r/assholedesign)


Well some-ones working to avoid spoiler it seems.


It's political convention season in the UK again unfortunately


I wonder will a new meme breath life back into an old one? Or will the old meme kill the new one. I am a terrible person for making this connection but now you'll all be joining me


When you're a Garms Jurnalizt trying to tell a developer you know better about the developer side of Steam then they do when they can literally open it and look to check at any moment.


So I've not seen any site report on this yet but it seems SEGA has made an officially licensed Bluetooth controller for Android devices. Comes with 19 games for people to redeem or whatever on Google Play store.


For those who read it my Sopa Box blog series is going to be o break until October because I kind of feel like having a break from it and want to change a few things with it.


So I played some of the Battlefield V Beta. Credit to EA, it took me a lot longer to realise just how scummy their business practices were in this one. I mean it's truly scummy this time but they've hidden it so well you don't immediately notice it.


Happy Birthday Dere. I don't have any funny cake picture so have a picture of a funny named chemical compound


How is DC managing to make Titans actually look even worse?


So here's some footage from the Battlefield V Alpha from a youtuber. For those planning to get into the Beta I hope for your sake they've fixed some of this stuff


Because for various (hopefully obvious) reasons I didn't share the Monthly Murderer unlock last week, here is the latest one for the like 2 people who care here.


I would put out something about "Need to Know" but I think it's had issues with its release. It's been patched 4 times since it released less than a week ago so anything I put out will quickly be out of date.


Actual words from a Riot employee: 'For things to truly be fair and equal some people must not be allowed to go certain places or take part in certain things' And people wonder why I felt the need to essentially post a disclaimer in the comments now.


Yet more youtube fuckery has been discovered


New feature being tested on Steam, you can now ignore developers / studios so their games don't show up in recommendation queues (And no I didn't Ignore Drinkbox)


"No lootboxes, they're totally not lootboxes guys they're Airlifts that contain a random cosmetic item" - EA on Battlefield V You watch EA sell these instead of just directly buying the item you want now lol


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


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.


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 )
