  • Ubisoft deactivating keys it says were "fraudulently" obtained and resold

  • azic 27/01/2015

    Rebellion did this with Sniper Elite 3 on Steam. None of the games were stolen or anything...UBI got the money they asked for, the issue is that they do not like us in the UK paying the same prices as say in the Ukraine... Rebellion never furnished us with any proof, of theft an neither will UBI.

    Digital platforms need regulation, to stop this from happening.

  • Microsoft announces Forza Motorsport 6 for Xbox One

    "offering a fun and realistic automotive experience"

    So that to me reads...Forza Horizon type physics in a Forza Motor Sport engine.

    I think also 2 potential big hitters out this year, Project Cars Being one..could be the reason Turn 10 /MS want a new Forza out so it does not get lost in the Racing Game/Sim mess.

    Hope its good.

  • Layoffs hit F1 and Dirt developer Codemasters

  • azic 09/01/2015

    Grid 2 was a fail, Grid we are sorry edition auto sport was an insult. Codemasters of late are unfocused and arrogant in their ways. The community have been screaming for a more focused sim game but they deliver games with poor physics and feel the same cars, lacklustre tracks and boring copy and paste campaigns.

    Toy box turbos not on next gen....huge fail right there! The F1 games whilst ok, don't deliver much and again a mod for rFactor and you don't need f1 when it comes to driving f1 Cars, and you get physics to boot.

    They are too focused on dare I say it, the casual gamer.

    We need a new CMR rally game, but with Richard Burns Rally Physics, and no American BS

  • Microsoft Flight Simulator X is coming to Steam next week

  • azic 10/12/2014

    From 2003 to 2009 I ploughed roughly £8000 into flight sim from addons to peripherals. I am a huge plane fan and I simply loved FSX. Some addons from companies like PMDG and LevelD simulations would model everything on the aircraft bar the fuses and some actually did. Some addons could be used to train for real life. I loved my time with FSX and I both learnt and had so much fun.

    Landing a 767 after - 3 hour flight on VATSIM (ATC with real people) was such an achievement. Planning your arrival, fuel, setting up the aircrafts computer for a full CATIII landing or hand flying in and nailing it can't be beaten.

    Why did I stop? No time anymore for 6-8 hours of solid simming. I miss FSX and my favourite addons a lot. I don't have the spare cash to invest anymore as well.

    To anybody who gets on it, check out the addon scene, but watch can never have too many addons (-;

    Got it on pc...needed something to warm up my up GPU given I have all but breathed in my PC's direction of late. Performance is good, playing it with ultra settings @ 2K DSR on a 1080p monitor.

  • The case for 30fps PC gaming

  • azic 30/11/2014

    Mate i know how to look after a pc. I'm a hardcore gamer and programmer with connections to the industry. My pc is only for games, that means the os, steam, origin. No other software, not even anti virus. Any software for any kind of de fragging is removed etc.

    I look after my pc better than my car...please don't come on here and tell me about pc optimisation etc...that's my bread and butter.

    Anyway, DF have the same issue as me, and I guess your going to say they need to learn as well.

    Fact is PC is being neglected badly these days and it's just down to laziness.

    After seeing how broken Far Cry 4 was on PC, I bought it on PS4. I got to say, I might not really look back. I love my PC, I have a good one, always play on max/ultra settings any game @ 1080p as that's all my 3d monitor can do, but having the game Jerk the way it does because of some issue as stated my DF just puts me off. This seems path of the course now on PC and its killing it for me.

    I even got Alien Isolation on PS4 in the black Friday sale on PSN, got to say loving that too on the big screen, and have played it more than the PC version....

    What's happening to me?

  • Yes, Triad Wars is free to play, but is it pay to win?

  • azic 24/09/2014

    There is just simply no way that Pay2Win cant come true on the F2P market. Nobody will care about avatar stuff if does nothing to boost your player in some way.

    I can foresee things like, buying coins to pay to learn new fighting moves, buy weapons and cars. They can dress it up however they want, the end goal is to earn money and lots of it.

    There will be some who will grind, but even that gets old when there will no doubt be people running around with all the moves and weapons. F2P is a cancer of gaming and all most always they Fail.

    Just either make it a subscription based game or don't bother.

  • Xbox boss Phil Spencer makes case for Tomb Raider exclusivity deal

  • azic 18/08/2014

    Its OK Uncharted 4 will more spank TR into the ground and more than make up for what will turn out to be Squares loss! When they are begging sony to put it on the PS4 hopefully Sony will bend them over and make it go on Fee for PSN+ subs and £29.99 for everybody else.

    Nothing against Platform Exclusives such as HALO/UNCHARTED or NEW IP's etc..but taking what was multiplat and turning them into Exclusives is IMHO a really counter productive thing to do.

    This just proves my thoughts. Steam is in a mess. They are beholden so much to the 3rd party publishers that customers are being abused beyond what is legal in most countries in the EU at least.

    Shoddy games, no help, barley any way to get a refund for anything even when its clear its not just a few hundred having an issue but almost every buyer.

    The fact they jump to the defense of the like of Rebellion to revoke keys that were allegedly stolen? still they have failed to furnish us with any evidence.

    Valve to need to get a Grip before its too late. I have invested thousands of my money into steam and time trading up to a mesley lvl 40. Bought all the CS operations etc etc.. but I now feel like valve have no respect and are just too big and faceless. I could quite happily turn my back on it all and just stick with my PS4.

    This sentiment is also resonating with many fellow gamers to and before its too late Steam will end being hated just as much as Orign. Sadly Origin will be there to pick up the ball.

    Mixed with the fact you don't actually own anything! Offline never works for most games and how can you predict an internet outage? you have no rights, you cant trade your games etc. UBI now selling games at £49.99 base price...I mean really? since when did a PC game cost that much for a basic version.

    Valve time to get a Grip on loving your customers again! and actually looking after them, not just their wallets.

    How about rebellion now owning up that no keys were stolen! How about refunds for the cluster fuck that is Watch Dogs on steam?

    All this has made me hate Steam with a passion. Most of you know I champion the PC master race...but of late fuck PC, the greed and lack of support far outweighs the benefits when it comes to steam.

  • Activision unveils three Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Collector's Editions

  • azic 31/07/2014


    Yes it really is that BAD. look at the screen shot in my post. Look at he red bounding boxes around the enemy.

    This hack costs around £14 for a months access and has not been detected yet by VAC or whatever "Anti Cheat" COD devs put in place.

    People just run around going 67-1 typing "owned" etc raging and you cant do a thing about it.

    It quite honestly is killing the PC market on multiplayer games.

    They even make cheats for F2P games..its a Joke. You just cant trust what you are seeing sometimes. Is that player just really good or are they haxing! I cant be bothered anymore, so I am now COD console only. I guess the last straw for me was when my entire team were being frozen and then moved around the map directly to a point the cheater wanted and then either killed or just left suspended.

    The above is done with an .exe that runs in the background and allows the hacker to gain control over the game..Which would not happen if WE HAD DEDICATED FUCKING SERVERS instead of this P2P BS.

    DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT BUY THIS ON PC. I have all COD's on PC and within a week they turn into a hackfest.

    Believe me 100% on this. Ghosts was a joke within 3 weeks. The only one to stave it off longer than a month was BLOPS 2.

    I have bought MW3/BLOPS 1 & 2/Ghosts on Console as well as PC just to avoid the hacks.

    Which range from Aimbots / Wallhacks / No gravity / Teleporting the entire team across a map / Insta Hit / No spread etc. etc.

    Bad move on Sony's part. Its a choice to pay, not forced. What Sony need to look at more than anything else is the fucking RIPOFF RETAIL FINGER IN THE BUM PLEASING digital prices! Thats a rip off right there.

    £59.99 for a game that costs £39.99 in a shop and with no box and manual and little to no carbon footprint in its delivery.. That does not represent good value at all.

  • UK changing approach to illegal torrents

  • azic 22/07/2014

    Equal release dates. Not having to wait a week between episodes, not having to watch an advert every 5.5mins, full series releases on demand. not half now and half later.

    There are thousands of amazing TV shows for example you just don't get in the UK why? A quick search on the internet and I have found about 20 really good shows that I have not seen or found in the UK and they are old too.

    Id happily pay £30 a month Max for a service that give me on demand everything now with no limits.

    I have Netflix, Amazon, Top end Virgin Media package, Now TV ent & Movies and its still not enough because most of it is garbage!

    Yet on my XBMC using a Plugin I can watch thousands of new and old TV Shows & Movies at the touch of a button. Not legal, but until they get as good as that Ill have to source 50% of my TV entertainment from other sources :)

    Greed / Advertising is the main driver and its only going to bite them on the ass.

  • Cliff Bleszinski talks Bluestreak, F2P, Nexon and Boss Key

  • azic 10/07/2014

    I agree, but he forgot that it was the PC that launched him to stardom.
    At the end of the day PC was a mess at that time, but he could of put that better..instead of saying "I Dwag on that Platform" as in its now irrelevant because I have the 360 to play with and a bucket load of MS cash.

    What he actually did was tow the line for MS and in some ways he damaged the PC by backing up the fallacy that Piracy is a PC only issue.

    The irony is, as he was typing those silly remarks his latest and greatest was already leaked on to the torrent sites before its actual retail release.

    I think those kind of comments & his attitude cut quite deep! A simple apology would make sense, since its pretty clear that F2P won't survive on Console cash only.

    Regardless, its his choice and his opinion...he will have to live or by die them!

  • azic 10/07/2014

    He is making it for the PC...The platform in his owns words he said "I Dwag that Platform" and "Those guys need to pay for their games"

    And of course its free to play, but when it fails he will cry "They hacked the game, they found a way to stop us milking them"

    I actually in reality like old Cliff, but his PC hate, because he had the 360's cock in his ass.. really angered me. If he would just say sorry I would pardon his sins.. but I guess that ain't going to happen.

    Oh well, I do wish him good luck! I hope that the new game is good

    CJS just updated their blog

    Update 30th June 2014:

    It appears that Rebellion have attempted to backtrack again on their post by providing a short list of companies which they sell directly to, seemingly trying to imply that anyone not on the list is not legitimate.

    There is a slight flaw in this though… CD Key shops do NOT tend to buy keys direct from the developers. They buy the games in physical boxed form, from authorised distributors. Do you see Amazon, Game, Shopto, and every other single independent boxed video game company worldwide in their list? No. That’s because they are only listing companies which they have direct contracts with.. They are excluding the long list of companies which buy boxed copies from the publisher or distributor… and that includes most of the 60+ digital key retailers.

    What Rebellion want you to believe:

    Rebellion seem to want people to think that the only legitimate Supply chain is Rebellion -> Retailer (steam, GMG, etc) … anyone not on the list and selling in digital form is automatically somehow illegitimate.

    The Truth:
    CD Key shops do NOT tend to buy in digital form. They buy PHYSICAL boxed copies and convert them into digital keys.

    The supply chain for physical boxed copies goes something like this: Rebellion -> Publisher -> 100+ Distributors (in various countries) -> Retailers (Amazon, GAME, CJS CD Keys, EBGames, etc). Some of the bigger retailers can sometimes buy directly from the Publisher if they have sufficient buying power.

    While the likes of Amazon ship out the boxed version of the game, CD Key stores open the boxes and sell them digitally. That is the sole difference. The growth in the market over the last years has enabled CD Key sellers go a step further, and have the official distributors scan the codes on behalf of the CD Key shops, saving on unnecessary shipping. The distributors can be anywhere in the world, since keys can be delivered within seconds. The result? Cheap games, sold digitally.

    Price comparison:

    Steam: £39.99

    Amazon: £25.44

    CJS: £20.99

    As you can see, while our keys may seem impossibly cheap to the average digital gamer, they are actually not so unbelievably cheap, when compared to their physical counterparts.

    Thing is its not and never was £40 game. It became a £40 game when the keys got revoked!

    Please Read:
    To clarify, aside from Steam itself, digital keys

    Digital Keys...Keys in a CD Box are not classed as Digital. Weather the Vendors are striping the Keys from boxes, means nothing, especially when the vendors affected are not just in the UK, but across the world, so the stolen pallets would have had to of been delivered.

    Now granted they could ship boxes there, but Rebellion have not confirmed where the keys came from. Also the sites that had their keys revoked had this game on pre-order at the price for at least a month before hand so IMHO its all very contradicting.

    As is the statement

    "As a developer," Rebellion wrote, "Rebellion are happy for you to purchase the game anywhere you see fit and support price competition in the PC market. We have in no way targeted any specific vendors (who may have also thought these keys were legitimate), just this one set of keys.
    And then giving an official list of Digital vendors!!

    Should the above not say:

    Rebellion are happy for you to purchase the game from any of our official vendors that you see fit?
    And this now official list clearly targets vendors that are not on it, but have been selling keys for a long time and without issue.

    They ought to stop pulling punches as should valve and come out and at the risk of large Libel cases name these so called "un-official vendors"

    If any shops / on-line stores were selling my products I would clearly state, if you buy from said shops I will revoke the key, but they cant do that and have no right to..Unless that is keys get "Stolen"

    Why dont Valve help their customers and make it official and clearly say "Any Keys bought from XXXX sites" will be revoked? Would this not put an end to all the BS and make it very clear to its customers and fans!

  • azic 30/06/2014

    The original story broke with "Keys were stolen from a Distributor"

    Now they are saying this

    To clarify, aside from Steam itself, digital keys for Sniper Elite 3 can be bought from the below list of licensed partners. We can confirm that we have not revoked any keys sent to these companies, nor have they reported any problems to us. This is the full list of companies that get their keys direct from us for digital sale – we do not sell to anyone else.
    Am I the only one who is now left wondering, If the keys are directly sold to the vendors listed on that page, where and how are distributors even involved if the sale is direct??

    I can only conclude that:

    1. This story is total BS and was done to force higher priced sales
    2. They know which company lost the keys or had them "Stolen" and as such made a very bad decision to ban all keys.
