Steam passes 65 million active users milestone

I will be first to say when it first came out I didnt like the idea of DRM on games as i was use to trading in old PC games as the serials were not tied to the games and after certain period would disconnect from an account.

But after getting use to DRM on PC, steam is a great platform for gaming, mostly their steam sales which Robs my wallet every year with epic deals

so Congrats as many have said they do deserve this

Nvidia Shield review

in sense this is a great device,
problem is though I dont think its entered the market at a great time when other handheld devices aren't selling so well (talking about the established brands)
for handheld more and more people are sticking with their mobile phones and they are getting more muscle over the years

Parents refused refund by Apple after son spends £1700 on free iPad game

bodrul

5 years ago

they are Idiots for letting him use it,
apple has password protection to stop this kind of shit from happening after the high profile court cases,

This is like the mother who refused to put the blame on her son after Zynga said they would give a full refund if the mother admitted her son had done it and taken criminal action against him.
she didn't want him to have a criminal record.

Does anyone here still play any Zynga games?
I use to play Mafia wars and Poker but the adverts and pop ups got overwhelmingly intrusive that it came to a point i just couldn't be bothered to open the apps anymore.

Valve counters EA's Steam sales "cheapen intellectual property" accusation

bodrul

6 years ago

I am someone that rarely purchases from steam on release
mostly because it can be cheaper to buy the box edition and then just connect it to steam with the serial i get

other then that I will admit I do jump on the steam sale bandwagon when it comes along

New Gears of War confirmed

bodrul

6 years ago

@wattsn26 thats what i was thinking
the way they ended 3 was great

why bring out another gears of war when they ended it greatly with Marcus and Phoenix

the DLC was great aswell as it gave good insight into some of the new characters

anyhow will be interesting to see when this is placed in the game.

GAME administrators close 277 stores, make over 2000 redundant

bodrul

6 years ago

@malforian agreed, in ST Albans
shops that have been around for decades are being forced to close due to Rent increases (St Albans Game was 1-3 in its region when it came to sales and more profitble then the Hemel store when it came to income)

End of the Day with Game Losing Money and Rent just going up, its just hit after hit.

Councils complain that they are losing companies yet they do Jack all to keep them in the first place.

Not saying Game have no Blame, Bad managment and bad decisions are also a factor, instead of adapting to the market Game have fought it.


so with so many things playing against them
its a shame this is happening (not supprised and most of us did predict this would happen)

hopefully someone bails Game out and the Staff dont lose their Jobs (those that are left after the first phase of their closures)

BioWare responds to Mass Effect 3 ending furore

bodrul

6 years ago

Most dispointing Game ever

Game was Depressing and the ending was a RIP off of Deus Ex
Mass Effect 2 i played multiple times for diffrent outcomes

Mass effect 3, one play through was enough (ended up youtubing the second ending)

What was the point in side quests and war assets when it did jack all to effect the ending or the game

anyhow Last Bioware game i buy (cant believe i paid £70 for the CE)

come on people, this isnt shocking
i have seen the same thing happen to woolworths (poor managment and poor comunications)

Game Plc are run by incompetent fools, instead of working ways of increasing profit they have worked in counter productive ways,

they have waged wars against publishers with threats of boycotts
they have manoplized game stores accross the country owning in some cases more then 3 stores in the same area

They have increased prices compared to competition

i was speaking to game employees about why they are closing down that store
and what shocked me most was that it wasnt based on sales figures of individual stores but the lease and how long it had left

so instead of closing stores which make a loss or little money they are going for any store they can get rid of fast.

Mass Effect 3 would have been a huge boost to their profits if they managed it right but due to the way they managed this they have failed once more.

Game are going down and sadly its something they could have avoided if they managed it right
