Earlier, we released an article where Play-Asia (playasia.com) had suggested that the reason Dead Or Alive Xtreme 3 was not being localised was because of “SJW nonsense”. While we personally probably wouldn’t have run that particular tweet in such tough terms ourselves, seeing another company do this has provided a tonne of insight into the western gaming news reporting and PR sphere. In particular, the views of the people within them. Below, I have accumulated a representative portion of people within gaming development, PR, journalism, as well as some technical people that appear important. I’ll let their own words speak for themselves. We do not support or condone the views of the people linked below. They represent themselves and their … Continue reading
Yesterday, an article from a games developer appeared on the gaming news website, Polygon, as an opinion piece. This piece is titled: “The mobile games market is an absolute mess, thanks to you”, and is written by Aksel Junkilla, CEO of BugByte. In this article, he effectively blames gamers for the lack of success that his game has seen on the mobile market, despite it being shilled by both Apple and Google. You can find the original article here, or the archive here. Below we’ll be discussing, responding and possibly even countering the original author and their entitlement complex. A mobile game my team and I poured our hearts and souls into is receiving rave reviews from users. The game, Battlestation: … Continue reading
Opposite the PlayStation booth at this year’s EB Games Expo, there was a space for upcoming titles being released by Bandai Namco Australia. There were some interesting titles on display, such as Dragon Quest Heroes, which will be released lather this year, Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 and Dark Souls 3, both of which will be released early 2016. All three games were fun to try out, with some cool gameplay mechanics and nice graphical styles. Dark Souls 3 has to be one of my favourite games at the show. On the surface, it looks like any other Dark Souls game in existence. However, after getting my hands on it, it’s going to continue the Dark Souls tradition in … Continue reading
The PlayStation booth sported an impressive lineup of games. They held two big spaces for two of the most anticipated multiplayer shooters this year: Star Wars Battlefront and Call of Duty: Black Ops III. In the middle, they showcased upcoming first and third party games worth checking out. These include Street Fighter V, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and the PS4 remake of Ratchet & Clank. All three games I had tried out were impressive in their own way, but still had a bit of work to do to before they were ready for release. I have never thought that the first game in the Ratchet and Clank series will be released on three different generations (and one handheld generation). However, a … Continue reading
Nintendo’s presence may have been smaller compared to previous years, but their game lineup did not disappoint. After spending some time at the Nintendo booth at this year’s EB Games Expo, I discovered a collection of promising games that will be worth your money if you are into the genres they represent. I was able to get my hands on several games such as Yokai Watch, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Project Zero Maiden of Black Water and Star Fox Zero. Yokai Watch is one of those games where I didn’t think it would make it to the West, but it did. The game centres around spirits and a young boy is tasked to finding all of these spirits in his home … Continue reading
There was always a reserved feeling when it came to Star Wars Battlefront. The game continued to focused on multiplayer, leaving out battles with bots, a campaign and Galatic Conquest, all featured in previous Battlefront games. These were the reasons I played the previous games. Not only that, but the character classes of the previous games were gone, replaced with customisable loadouts. At this year’s EB Games Expo, at the PlayStation booth, there was a playable demo of Star Wars Battlefront. I got my hands on it. While it does feel familiar, there are still concerns with the game. After a six minute video detailing the battle at hand, set on the icy planet of Hoth, thirty eight players filed … Continue reading
For the fourth year running, I attended the EB Games Expo. I was able to attend two days, Friday October 2 and Saturday October 3. However, I had two separate experiences. On Friday, I went all out with trying as much as I can when it came to the latest video games, all within the daylight session. Arriving at 8:30am, I was able to take in all of the sights and sounds of the main exhibition hall. The outline of the expo was the best layout it has ever been. The simplicity made it all work. Instead of being scattered, like previous years, the booths and stands were on either side of a long walkway which led to the EB … Continue reading
