The Last of Us 2?

When I heard that Naughty Dog is working on TLOU2 I couldn't be happier. I don't give a rat's ass about Nathan Drake or Crash Bandicoot, ND's other IPs, but TLOU...

Yeah, you shouldn't get me started. I've become somewhat of an amateur-expert on Cordyceps even. The level of nerdism runs that deep when it comes TLOU and what surrounds it. The only thing I possibly take further than that is Firefly.

Oh, the irony.

Many times I have talked about You-tube and the people that are so big on it being a new industry. How they massage themselves and their 'collegues', spend quite some time name-dropping themselves, think that their opinion is the only one opinion and want other people to defend that opinion.., the list goes on.

Numinous Games' and Youtube.., another example of getting victimized by 'fair use'?

Numinous Games, the studio that created 'That dragon cancer' recently relayed an article on their website describing their experiences with how their product was displayed in the wild. A few things stand out in their article; a) they make a case that third parties hindered the sales numbers of their game and b) they question the validity of a 1:1 broadcast of their product without the broadcaster doing anything to add to the content.

Digital Homicide files lawsuit against Jim Sterling.

In a period in time where Youtuber Pewdiepie succeeds into destroying a small-time developer fully, shovelware-studio Digital Homicide files a lawsuit against Youtuber Jim Sterling. The allogations include defamation, slander and lible. Digital Homicide and Jim Sterling have a less than gentlemanly relationship and their conversations to and fro are filled with deep-grounded animosity towards eachother.

Mountains out of anthills!

TB is going totally overboard over a minor fault in operation of Steam. I think it is great that he still works his channel even being a terminal cancer-patient, but it some point I believe he should be told (kindly) to step down and at least try to enjoy the time left granted him. There's was a time where TB was the go to for every serious PC-gamer. Now TB is just a lunatic on a soapbox of his own making. It's sad to witness and even sadder and cringeworthy to listen to.

Dead in Bermuda

Standing as an interesting little indie offering, Dead in Bermuda sets out to give a different look on the tried and tested indie-trope of partybased survival. Like many of these games, the team behind it is based from somewhere in Russia. I think this to be a good thing as the dominance of Japan and North America in the industry isn't really taking the evolution of games and gaming forward.

Leftfield games: Duskers

Duskers is an underexposed game from the indiescene that refreshingly refuses to be indie. It has no nightly attacks involving unbalanced monsters, no 'retro' elements that totally miss the point of why the retro was the way it was, it has no punching trees on the first day, it has no bleeding unfair difficulty excused with 'rogue-like' and it has no zombies or braindead military experiments in badly lit asylums.

Kingdom is a 2D pixel-art indie offering. That in itself earns it a direct 'not interested' post-it on my gamedesk. The amount of utter shyte that gets dumped upon the gamer in the 2D pixel-art indie genre is staggering if not overwhelming. An offering in the genre has to be particularly remarkable for me to seriously regard it as a thing that I would allocate time to.

ETS, ATS and derivative works.

ETS and ATS are two titles created and maintained by SCS Soft, a studio some of us might predominantly remember from their 2D sidescrolling iteration of Duke Nukem, one of the best received entries in the franchise ever. ETS stands for Euro Truck Simulator. The title isn't a cynical cash in on the german simulator market. It's a very true simulator of overcab trucking as it is done in Europe, minus the tedious paperwork.
