My earliest memory of gaming is of playing on my Commadore C64, playing Flimbo's Quest and my mum getting addicted to it to the point she would play until three or four in the morning when she wasn't working; I guess I get my addictive personality from her.
I've owned most consoles and handhelds down the years, most of them are still in working order and I've had a gaming PC since 2000 and I can honestly say I love all platforms equally, except X-Box, all it's exclusives I wanted eventually came to PC so I never had a reason to own one.
In my commentary and blogs I aim to bring a neutral and calm voice to the furore in our community, which as we all know can get out of hand and descend in to poop slinging all too easily
Never really heard of these guys, at least I don’t think I have.
Working on commissions is okay for a one man company, but not as a studio, they should have been generating their own ideas and trying to market them, hell try for a kickstarter or indiegogo project.
I just hope they all land of their feet somewhere else – Chronic unemployment is hell.
Looking forward to being able to turn the console on when I get home from whatever i was doing outside.
It’s the same DLC that people got with their preorders – had no story, but was a fun little diversion.
I always found Ragnarok Online really charming!
This looks adorable, but I’m not sure how well it will do over in the West.
As was the The Last of Us reveal.
I love the show for the surprise reveals, but the rest of it is a bit cringe worthy.
I can’t wait to get this in the first week of December! :3
Taellosse nailed it. I have limited understanding on how the US’s states govern themselves, so I only had the medias coverage of the events to go on and my own understanding of the financial workings of a studio such as 38 – Everything that happened to them following the change in government pointed towards either a substantial change in the terms of the loan or an outright demand for full repayment. If the usual ruling of a loan had been applied they would have had years to pay off the loan, but the game hadn’t been out even a year before things started to unravel.
I absolutely adored Amalur and to this day I still feel like the studio was set up and screwed over by the Rhode Island government. In every article on the various gaming websites it always reads like the load was given and then was instantly (relatively, time wise) demanded full repayment, instead of the usual way a loan works – repayment over a fixed sum of years.
I hope who every buys the IP is also one of the studios that took on people from 38 Studio… and that they give the property the chance it deserved.
