New year's resolution: Let's stop screaming

Brodie

1 year ago

Great article.

I've been out of games for a while now, having had them soured for me by losing my 12 year job at Gameplay a few years back, then the spectre of DLC rising. Having kids took away my free time, but I recently dipped my toe back in, and while I could see that over promising and under delivering hadn't gone away, it was attracting an almost incandescent rage on forums and comments.

I couldn't really see the point of all the fury and bluster and death threats and hate, and I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Ive stayed offline,played the old games ilove, tinkered with new things I might like despite the rage all around,and generally just kept out the social side of things, because it just seems anti social rather than social.

Odd that after all this time, the hobby I've grown up with hasn't grown up with me. Instead it seems to have regressed to playground squabbles, but with far more misplaced hate than any Speccy vs Commodore slangingmatch could ever muster.

Guess its a sign of the times, just look at the state of Twitter, American Politics, Brexit etc, so why should games fans be any different, but it's still pretty depressing. Hopefully it's just a minority of entitled asshats,but it just seems to be getting worse.

Anyway, um, yeah. That's my post for the next two or three years done. Hope it gets nicer, and folks remember that it's only games. Fun things, not life or death.

Outside Xbox's Best Worst Games of 2013

Question - do you guys get paid for the advertising if I just click on the video?

Because as soon as I see an ad, I tend to leave the page, and I'm wondering if that affects your monetising. It means I don't see the content, so maybe you could just put any old shit up there and still get paid?

*Wishes videos had a clear "this vid has a bastard advert on it" statement before clicking on the damn things.*

Been saying it for years, to no-one in particular, that I'm utterly fucking sick to death of the viral for a secret website advertising a teaser for a trailer for an announcement of a website for an announcement of a countdown to a trailer for a teaser to a game that we can't play for another two years is just taking the piss, and actually ends up switching me off rather than engaging me.

I don't care about all your previews and countdowns and teases. I just want "Game info. Price. It's out in a month. ENJOY"

In praise of early adopters

Brodie

4 years ago

I was day one on Dreamcast, Xbox, PSP, Xbox 360, Neo Geo Pocket Colour, Gameboy Colour, and tried to be day one in Tokyo for a PS2 (fat chance...).

Got Cube and PS2 early in, and Wii the first christmas it was available, and DS I picked up the white model at launch in Japan.

Since last gen though? Not a thing. No 3DS, no Vita, no PS4, no Xbone. Not sure if I'm going to either, and that feels really weird. :/

Still, I've not got a PS3 yet, so I've a treasure trove of stuff to go back to on the cheap I guess.

Strider's revival could be the classic's best sequel yet

Brodie

5 years ago

If this is good, it's probably the last game I'll buy on Xbox 360. And it really better be good, no need to be tainting Strider's good name with a shitty hack job.

So, yeah, I'm hopeful.

Who am I kidding, I'll buy it regardless, and try and force myself to like it anyway.

Idiot.

@bad09 Not bleeding hearts crap.

Was just trying to balance out the whole "Waaah, waaah, my CE won't arrive now, however will I cope, fuck everyone that works for GAME" #firstworldproblem bullshit and remind people that jobs and livelihoods are at stake and are GENUINELY more important than a game with some extra tat, that you'll be able to get elsewhere anyway.

Disappointing sure, frustrating definitely, inconvenient for certain, but NOT life changing. Unlike losing a job in the middle of a massive recession.

@LHH Maybe I will, as they certainly aren't responsible for any of the financial woes their overpaid higher up colleagues brought upon the rest of us.

Much like the store workers aren't responsible for the problems the management have created.
