    Have you met Kotick or ever interviewed him yourself - if so, what were your impressions? Misunderstood, misquoted everyman? Or everything we've come to suspect

    Haha, so Kotick is big enough to spawn four threads on the same day. Fair play then.



    Any news on what kind of tournaments'll be occuring at EG Expo? I know you responded to me on facebook saying there will be some, but I've not seen on what exactly!
  • Immaterial 4 years ago

    massive abuse of power. I love it.
  • mal 4 years ago

    Bit weird how when I comment, if the page it busy, my comment isn't the first in the list when the page comes back. It's almost as if the page is servicing other requests while handling my comment and serving me up a fresh page. YOU WILL LOOK AT ME WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU GODDAMNIT!

    OK, looks like our comments database is getting hammered. More optimisations needed.

    If the comments refresh on the right hand side, whilst the comment is being posted - often it can show you comment below (so it has posted) but it still says "posting..." above.

    Hello



    The scrolling elements are too large. On my laptop I have to go to the bottom of the page, then scroll the questions/comments to get to the bottom. Can they adjust for screen or window size?



    Also the page does not seem to updating. Refershing the page does not seem to fix it

Our live coverage has now ended. Here's what you missed: Updating...

14:15 By Craig Munro

Hello! Welcome to the new Livetext beta test page. We'll begin at 3pm.

14:59 By Tom Bramwell

Hello everyone! This is going to be a test NOT ONLY of the spangly new live text system Craig has spent the last week or two developing, but also your endurance, and my capacity to talk rubbish continuously for 30 minutes. Who's excited?

15:01 By Tom Bramwell

Before we begin properly, I should probably introduce myself for anyone who has no idea who I am. I'm the editor of the site, which means I do things like typing reports, reducing headcount, etc.

15:01 By Tom Bramwell

15:02 By Tom Bramwell

This is a picture of me yesterday moving a washing machine with Alec Meer from GamesIndustry.biz and friend of Eurogamer Al Bickham. I'm the guy with the beard dressed as a lumberjack.

15:03 By Tom Bramwell

Anyway let's see what's in these comments. I can pull them in to the live feed to highlight them, you know.

Livetext_beta_tester says:

Hi, Tom. I enjoyed Eurogamer's Dead Rising 2 review, but I wondered if you are aware of any reason why the reviewer, Simon Parkin, did not include any mention of key online components added to this sequel. Namely "online co-operative play" and also no mention of the online gameshow "Terror Is Reality." Both were completely omitted from the Eurogamer game review. I wanted to ask if there be another review or re-review for Dead Rising 2, which will include details of these online components in the future? Regards.

15:04 By Tom Bramwell

Hi livetext_beta_tester. I assume you're a long-time user. I believe the reason Simon wasn't able to talk about them in the review was because we couldn't test them before launch, but would need to check with our reviews editor Oli Welsh. I'm not sure if we're going to do a separate piece on the online elements either but that might be fun. What do you make of them?

mrpon says:

Tom, do you like apple pies?

15:04 By Tom Bramwell

I do like apple pies.

InfiniteFury says:

I haev a question - will there be some kind of posting time limit when this goes live? Could get messy on the right hand side. Will it be moderated

15:05 By Tom Bramwell

There should be moderation on comments, yes. We've got a few other presentational changes we want to make too - e.g. we want to be able to pull in a question or comment from the comments feed and then reply directly under it. I also think we should make it more obvious that a comment I've pulled in from the right is from a reader - at the moment it looks a bit like you work for us!

Vroom says:

Tom. You have the voice of an angel.

When is your LP out?

Can you come sing my kids to sleep?

15:06 By Tom Bramwell

Thank you! I find my singing is better at waking up children than putting them to sleep.

skowhegan says:

Do you sleep all night and work all day? Cut down trees, wear high heels, suspenders and a bra?

15:07 By Tom Bramwell

Yes and I also make efficiency savings.

15:07 By Tom Bramwell

15:08 By Tom Bramwell

I can post videos in here too you know. My example video was always likely to be this one.

15:09 By Tom Bramwell

I could share some cool links too I suppose. Do you like running? This article about Jure Robic, the Slovenian ultra long-distance cyclist, really inspired me to punch through that mental barrier 15 to 20 minutes into a run. Fatigue is mostly in your head. I was very sad to read that Jure died this past weekend while training. He was a great.

Vroom says:

Tom, taking into account the obvious time and resource issues wouldn't it to great to have one of these hosted a day after each major review goes live. Hosted by the reviewer and your good self.

15:10 By Tom Bramwell

Interesting idea! There's lots of potential uses for them I think. One of the reasons we're reinventing them is that our current system is quite creaky and we want to be more flexible.

mouse says:

OMFG enough with that video already

15:11 By Tom Bramwell

Haven't you got some pictures to draw or something?

15:11 By Tom Bramwell

15:12 By Tom Bramwell

Here is another entirely unrelated video.

meme says:

Tom: If someone really hates a review, like really really hates it, like totally hates it, like 'I hate this fucking review, it's the worst thing ever', would you give that person your home address so they can visit you and give their complaints face to face?

15:13 By Tom Bramwell

Only if they made the game!

Bremenacht says:

It'd be good to quote stuff from the left column in the right column quickly

15:13 By Tom Bramwell

I like this! Craig, take note!

X201 says:

Lets get to the big questions.
Bobby Kotick... Is it a wig?

15:15 By Tom Bramwell

Doubt it, but he does look a lot like Billy Crystal in that photo everyone uses of him looking like Billy Crystal.

Vroom says:

Tom, what other sites (not necessarily gaming) do you admire?

15:16 By Tom Bramwell

Stuff I read daily: football365.com, planetf1.com, news.bbc.co.uk, grauniad, etc. I'm quite boring. I love Rock Paper Shotgun's Sunday Papers posts - that'll happily kill a week of lunch-hours.

mrpon says:

The "Girls just wanna have Tom" vid is right at the bottom of the page, under the More live coverage frame.

15:17 By Tom Bramwell

I think that's a bug but it strikes me as a feature we should add to the site.

X201 says:

Tom, did you get around to getting a copy of that Kenneth Brannagh, Shakleton thing I told you about?

15:19 By Tom Bramwell

I think I added it to my Amazon wishlist - got a stack of important material to work through first, such as some book Christian Donlan lent me about DARPA and the rest of Entourage season 7.

15:20 By Tom Bramwell

Good recommendation though. Loved the book - Endurance.

mrpon says:

Those vids are randomly floating around the page!

15:20 By Tom Bramwell

Love it.

rauper says:

Noob question & late to the party. Are the comments on the right the same as asking the livetext person a question? (like when we do a livetext Q&A) Or are they just like normal article comments? And what do they look like once the livetext has finished?

15:22 By Tom Bramwell

1/2) Not sure technically but I guess functionally they are more like livetext Q&A. 3) When the LT finishes it waits a bit then goes chronological so people who weren't following it live can read through the log. We can also add introductions and stuff like that.

meme says:

rauper got preferential treatment! Bah.

15:22 By Tom Bramwell

Like a boss.

StarchildHypocrethes says:

Tom, is your name on that Sky Broadband list?

15:22 By Tom Bramwell

What list?

mouse says:

Are we able to have paragraphs in comments?

Seems not.

15:23 By Tom Bramwell

Paragraphs are last-gen.

pinebear says:

Roquefort / Brie

15:23 By Tom Bramwell

Both.

15:24 By Tom Bramwell

Oh ho, googled the Sky Broadband list thing. Comedy! Anyway don't be ridiculous - were I to acquire gentlemen's material, I would not give Sky money for it.

Immaterial says:

that's why your name's not on the Sky broadband list.

15:25 By Tom Bramwell

I do use Sky Player, but it's ridiculously overpriced and I'm thinking of canning it. Paying 30 quid odd a month to watch Liverpool get tonked again and again is a bit stupid.

pinebear says:

Cheers Tom. Was just trying out daveeyre's cheese-based rating system though.

Question: What are your thoughts on Facebook Connect, and is there a place for it in the EG empire?

15:27 By Tom Bramwell

We looked at Facebook Connect recently. There may be a place for it at some point but not immediately. In the meantime we added the Like button because it gives us promotion on Facebook which is kind of what we were after. We're also going to make it easier for writers to publish relevant updates to our Facebook channel soon, if anyone cares, as at the moment it's basically just me posting links when I remember. (You're really seeing behind the curtain today!)

rivuzu says:

Tom, did the amount of criticism EG received over the Kotick threads make you facepalm, epic style?

15:28 By Tom Bramwell

No not really. Like I said on the forum, I think people assume we split stories out for the wrong reason - we do it because they're individually interesting and we don't want people to miss them, whereas folks assume we do it for pageviews. Pageviews really aren't as big a deal as people imagine.

Livetext_beta_tester says:

Final question from me. Tom, have you ever tried to bend a FIFA disc in frustration?



mouse says:

Oh man, we've lost so many FIFA discs to overuse in this office it's unreal. I'm not even lying.

15:29 By Tom Bramwell

That kind of sums it up! At one point with FIFA 10 I got us a replacement disc and we broke it in one day.

By the way, I'm reviewing PES at the moment (review has an 11am Friday embargo) and enjoying it way more than last year!

Immaterial says:

Hey- you quoted me out of context!
Do I win something?

craigy says:

OK, looks like our comments database is getting hammered. More optimisations needed.

15:31 By Tom Bramwell

This is why we test!

Immaterial says:

massive abuse of power. I love it.

15:31 By Tom Bramwell

S'how I got where I am yo.

MMMarmite says:

Bare knuckles who would you put your money on Tom? Schafer or Kotick?

15:31 By Tom Bramwell

I don't believe in gambling.

rivuzu says:

Haha, so Kotick is big enough to spawn four threads on the same day. Fair play then.



Any news on what kind of tournaments'll be occuring at EG Expo? I know you responded to me on facebook saying there will be some, but I've not seen on what exactly!

15:32 By Tom Bramwell

Not sure I'm allowed to say, sorry! The developer sessions are going to be awesome though. I've been talking to Tim Willits and some of the others about what they're showing and it should be brilliant fun. If you have time on the Saturday afternoon you should check out the Hello Games (Joe Danger) one too - that's going to be a riot.

15:33 By Tom Bramwell

I'm being told I have to stop because we're going to break the site :-) Thanks everyone! This has been lots of fun!

mcmonkeyplc says:

Are you enjoying PES more than you enjoyed last weeks game against united then Tom?

15:33 By Tom Bramwell

Remember the post about abuse of power and remember also that I can delete accounts.
