There is no easy way to discuss this topic, so I'm just going to jump into it and prepare for the hatred that may come. People were offended by the way a Polygon reporter handled criticism over his reporting of Vlambeer apologizing for perceived pro-Nazi symbolism in his new game Luftrausers. Twitter proceeded to explode and attack the journalist.
Earlier today, former Lazygamer.net writer and all around fun guy Nick De Bruyne started a simple little Twitter hashtag game that’s now gone a little mental – and is trending in South Africa at the moment. The task was to combine an existing film, with an existing game for a fun hybrid.
When it comes to the video game industry, there often isn't much in the way of feel-good stories. Sure, there are game successes and we enjoy the products of the industry, but all too often we hear about studio closures and people losing their jobs. But this story made it feel a bit better.
There was a closed Alpha of TitanFall recently and a lot of complaints were posted about the low res textures of the game and how it didn’t really look nearly as good as you would expect from a brand new AAA game.
It's a new year, 2014 (in case you weren't aware). Part of that means that we want to be more involved with you guys. No, not like that - I'm a married lady! But we do want to see you all, and chat, and play games, and drink. You get the picture.
There have been rumours, conjecture and supposition that a Fallout 4 announcement was coming this weekend. It all started when a mysterious site, thesurvivor2299.com popped up on the internet, filled with clues and hints pointing towards a Fallout reveal. That site, however, is largely suspected to be a hoax.Bethesda’s not keeping the fire of hope burning either.
Right now on the Xbox 360 and its Xbox Live service, you’re limited to a paltry 100 friends, so it requires regular pruning to ensure that you always have active friends t play multiplayer games online with. This, of course, has never been a problem for Darryn, but for those with friends it’s a bit bothersome. That all changes with the Xbox One.
As you may or may not have noticed, local dedicated gaming purveyor BT Games has made the jump to doing digital distribution of games, where you can buy and also pre-order digital copies of the latest games. On top of that, you’ll get some free Afrihost bandwidth with your first order – so you needn’t worry about data caps too much. and to celebrate it all, we’re going to give you some free ADSL data too.
With all the trouble currently occurring in the Arabic countries up north you would think corporates would tread gently when discussing issues directly related to these countries. Well Shuhei Yoshida obviously did not get that email and managed to upset a few Arabic gamers.
I’ll admit that I haven’t ever paid attention to Min-Liang Tan, not for any reason he has just never popped up on my radar. For those that don’t know he is the CEO of Razer gamer gear and appears to be pretty outspoken on his personal twitter account.
Sometimes, when people are unhappy, they take to the streets and riot- I mean protest. The rest of us take to twitter. Rumor has it, Sony might be taking notice.
You may remember last week that the Creative Director of Microsoft, Adam Orth, took to twitter to discuss the rumour that the next Xbox will require an always online connection. And by the look of it it hasn’t ended very well for Adam.
By now, it’s well documented that we happen to be utterly in love with Borderlands 2, our 2012 game of the year that isn’t Call of Duty Black Ops 2. Great guns, unreal monsters and even better characters made this one of the best titles of the year, something that plenty of other folks would agree on.
