GOG.com is the saviour of gaming, according to some - with its zero DRM distribution method and its fair international pricing mechanism so it came as a little bit of a surprise to hear this morning that they have refused to distribute the upcoming mass murder game, Hatred.
So anyone who’s been following this site and me personally for any amount of time would know that I am an absolutely massive Liverpool Football Club fan. I’ve been a fan since the very first time I watched Ian Rush and John Barnes knock the ball around way back in the 80’s.
Suffice to say EA is not the favourite company of many gamers who feel the company exists purely to increase profits. And the best way for the company to do that, says many, is to ship sub-par games and then ruthlessly release crap DLC while slashing head counts.
DLC (Downloadable Content) has become synonymous with having to actually fork out extra cash instead of just getting nice, free updates.
There has been a lot of criticism of the gaming industry in the past year from how our games aren’t inclusive or diverse enough to how the industry is corrupt from the developers all the way past journalists and to the retailers even.

Sony Online Entertainment is planning on releasing their next two big titles onto the Xbox Platform and are expecting at least a 50% bump in profits with the move. But it’s not as insane as you think.
The Activision marketing machine has already started for Black Ops 3 which is a real surprise to me.
