Dirty Bomb Open Beta Preview

dirty-bomb-logo

Dirty Bomb is the latest team-based FPS from Splash Damage and published by Nexon. The game has two teams of players controlling a group of mercenaries as they compete against each other in a post-nuclear Britain. The game itself recently went into Open Beta, and our people that we know forwarded us a starter kit, so we thought that we’d take a look at the game and see what it is all about. On your first launch of the game, you’ll be expected to watch a video on how to play to Dirty Bomb. Pay extra-super-special-awesome-attention to this video as I’ve run across too many players that still have no idea how to play the game that are sufficiently leveled … Continue reading

GamerGate A Hate Group, I think Not – #GGinSydney Meetup

gg-in-syd-invite

Last weekend, on Saturday the 30th of May, GamerGate supporters held a small meeting in a pub down in Parramatta. Inspired by the #GGinDC event, which ended when the police were called due to bomb threats, the #GGinSydney event saw 30-40 people discussing GamerGate from a variety of genders and racial backgrounds. Even game developers attended. Us here at Attack On Gaming were also present at this event. What was rather surprising was that everyone at the event seemed to be interested in discussing corruption within gaming media. However, the night definitely had more about getting smashed and talking about Anime and Video Games.  There was even a small group, ourselves included, huddled over playing Super Smash Bros. 3DS and … Continue reading

Interview With Rail Slave Games on Selfie: Sisters of the Amniotic Lens

selfie-logo

Selfie: Sisters of the Amniotic Lens is the strange and odd game from developer Rail Slave Games. The title has the player go through some rather strange and disturbing things as part of a ritual into an alternative dimension. The game itself mixes disturbing imagery with what is probably the most realistic fly simulation that I’ve ever experienced in a game. We were recently given the opportunity to have an interview with the developer of Selfie, Rail Slave Games’ Dylan Barry. In this interview we discuss the game itself, the thought process behind it, and just how the realistic flies came about. As we stated in our review, this is a game that has to be experienced, no matter what. … Continue reading

The #GamerGate #GGinDC Meetup Ends With Bomb Threat

gamergate-logo-tv-broked

Earlier today over in the US, #GamerGate conversationalists had a small meetup at a local bar a block away from a police station, spread through the hashtag #GGinDC. This meetup would see local GamerGate tweeters, writers covering GamerGate topics, as well as others meeting up to chill and play video games. From reports in the Twitter-sphere, the #GGinDC meetup had a popular journalist at Breitbart, Milo Yiannopolis, as well as a popular feminist and feminist scholar, Christina Hoff Sommers, in attendance. These were two notable people in a sea of gamers willing to discuss gaming ethics over a chilled pint. However, the night would go from people dodging the dancefloor to a sudden fire evacuation within a few short hours. … Continue reading

Why The Skyrim Mod Charges Are A Terrible Idea In Steam

skyrim-creationkit-steamworkshop-forblog_v2

Earlier today, Bethesda and Valve made a move to alter the current community modding mechanism in Valves Steam distribution platform. That change has enabled modders to set a charge for their mods if they so choose to. On paper, this seems like a great idea, content creators will be able to release a mod and then make some money off of their creations. Below I talk about why I think that this is a bad decision. We’ve seen some success for ideas like this before in games like Second Life, which is almost entirely player economy driven. However, in this case, I think that this system creates a terrible precedent for gamers that like mods, and the people creating mods … Continue reading
