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.

 
 

I have at least 1 Cblog a week scheduled to release until August 3rd. Now if the games industry could try not to do any colossally anti consumer or completely insane things until then it would be much appreciated. Looking at you EA, Looking at you!

 
 
 

Probably the best coverage on a certain recent happening in gaming.

 
 

Popular in the Dtoid Network today, Nothing apparently


 
 

Sometimes Steam's Discovery queue brings you hidden gems, sometimes it brings you games that look awful then one rare occasions it brings you games that just seem plain weird, so weird you feel like sharing them just to confirm you're not hallucinating


 
 

The Steam Sale minigame even has boss fights. They're a clusterfuck lol


 
 

The more I see of Anthem the more worried I get that it won't last 10 months let alone 10 years. It doesn't feel like it knows what it wants to be, is it EA's Destiny, is it Mech Monster Hunter it feels like it doesn't have a clear direction to it.

 
 

I wrote a Cblog for this week, but I think it's melted in this UK weather.

 
 
 

Wooo the game I gave my most anticipated game award to for this year is actually planning to release this Summer, with a Slight name change. Perfect timing with the announcement Friday the 13th is done updating for the foreseeable future


 
 

Well new Cblog is up I did say I was going to elaborate about asset flips and low effort games on Steam and how there is more to it than people might think. Oh an it's not a ranty SOPA Box one


 
 

From /r/Steam. An announcement from the private Steamworks group for developers / people who create items for games. New measures to crack down on "fake games" including a new confidence rating. Which has apparently already put EA games as low confiden


 
 
 
 

Dear person who keeps trying to log into my Epic Games account. I have no Fortnite currency, Stop trying I'm getting fed up of being told you tried to log in and failed

 
 

Congratulations to Disney & IGN for winning worst companies of E3, taking the heat off EA, by making themselves look like giant backwards puritanical assholes. For those who don't know they chose to cut the feed during the Sony press conference during

 
 

Sony this year felt like they had pulled down their pants and were just doing a victory lap going "We won, We won, we can do whatever weird stuff we want this year" and everyone going "You can, but you probably shouldn't because you were doing well"

 
 

I seriously thought the Bethesda company intro video was a going to be a parody and wasn't genuine. I swear I was expecting it to secretly be announcing Better off Ted The video game or something. Seriously this was a parody of it done years before

 
 

Is it just me or does the protagonist of Sea of Solitude give the impression of secretly being Shadow-Spawn gf but put into a video game?


 
 

Well something made my day today. Hearing that Morality in Media are upset about Steam's new Policy. You know the Moral puritan lot who tried to get a load of anime games pulled from Steam and wanted to pull even more.

 
 

Lol was looking through and found my E3 Report card for last year


 
 

I think my entire position on Steam's new rule change can be summed up by this: "Robert Yang can now release games on Steam and that is a good thing"

 
 

Report Card so far for this year, yes I left one blank as I have no hopes or expectations for them


 
 

And the Flight Sim devs are at it again this time trying to send legal threats to reddit / reddit moderators.

 
 

Just when you thought you knew what happened with the whole "Active Shooter" game on Steam the story takes a weirder twist including Friends, potential financial fraud and sanctions on Russia by the US government

 
 

Bah I know why Disqus is down, it's because I've planned a C-blog to be released tomorrow it's the universe deciding to fuck with me.

 
 

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 )
