Daybreak Games Closing Down Landmark Game Servers

By |2017-02-08T01:18:12+01:00January 6th, 2017|Categories: Games|Tags: , |

6 months after the official launch of Landmark Game, Daybreak Game Company have announced that they are closing the servers on February 21 2017.  The game will be no more. There are many gamers that are very sad tonight, and some that are probably gloating. Daybreak Games Closing Down Landmark Game Servers To say this is a shock isn't entirely true.  Its been on the cards for a while but loyal players, who have stuck by the game for 3/4 years, Players who have paid hundreds of pounds into the game just kept hoping and praying Landmark would be fixed. Landmark Game is the only game around like it, nothing else can replace it.   Players have been asking for updates for months because bugs were not being fixed and more bugs were appearing but Daybreak had gone silent.  (Cue cricket noise)  Daybreak weren't even answering complaints or helping players at all. People who hand spent 100s of hours building creations before launch could not place them in the new build since launch, it was crazy. Daybreak were useless at community management before (since [...]

Whats going on – No Mans Sky

By |2017-02-08T01:18:17+01:00August 10th, 2016|Categories: Games|

Whats going on - No Mans Sky was launched on PS4 on Monday 8th August and will be available on PC by Friday the 12th of August. No Mans Sky was developed by Hello Games a small team of around 15 people who have been working on the game for 4 years. The game has been out for 2 days on PS4  at the time of writing, and as you would expect already there are shouts of joy, desperation, and disappointment, for various reasons. It's actually refreshing to see tweets about a different game other than PokemonGo, whatever they say. Who are Hello Games Hello Games are based in Guildford UK (close to me!)  founded in 2008 by four friends, Sean Murray, (founder) Ryan Doyle, David Ream and Grant Duncan.  They had previously worked together for other businesses and wanted to bring the vibrancy and fun back to games themselves. No Mans Sky is not their first game they also created Joe Danger but No Mans Sky is set to be one of the biggest games this year.  It does help [...]

As daybreak breaks Landmark and Everquest Next with layoffs players come together to show their support.  For those that don't know Landmark is an Online MMO Game which was being developed by Sony Online Entertainment and was the Everquest Next counterpart.

With Landmark Open Beta coming very soon they were going to run with it while they worked on Everquest Next.   We weren't expecting this shocker today..

3 ways to prevent a ban from online games

By |2017-02-08T01:18:56+01:00June 28th, 2014|Categories: Games|Tags: , , , , , |

Getting banned or suspended from a game is never fun and sometimes you might be mistakenly banned for no reason that you can see, but sadly some games won't even talk to you about your misfortune, they are right and you are wrong.  Even if you say you were hacked, they say that this is your problem you should have protected your password. I've played online games for many years with various gaming companies, Sony, EA games, Jagex,   Square Enix from the biggest to the smallest games - usually games that involve chatting and meeting new players, which is why I like Empire Avenue, the social media stockmarket game. This game enables me to chat to people that are like minded.  Empire avenue has recently changed many of its rules or TOS basically because the game had been seen to have users that were using the game for reasons not intended and it needed a shake up, to protect its users and its reputation. Due to this people have found themselves, told off, suspended, banned etc, however wrong this may [...]

By |2017-02-08T01:19:01+01:00March 2nd, 2014|Categories: Games, Mobile - Reviews and News|Tags: , , |

This has to be the cutest iOS game - The Amazing World of Stubies!  These little guys are just too cute, and I just love the colours. Stubies is the creation of Lukas Bahrle & Andreu Taberner from Creatiu lab in Barcelona, when you first see it you think it is a very simple colour matching game, but the more you play it the more challenges you have. What is this iOS game - The Amazing World of Stubies Stubies is a 100% indie game  and its only 0.69p to buy on iTunes.  If you like puzzle games for your iPhone or iPad you will like this one, and if you like cute, then this is the game for you.  69p is a small price to pay to have these cute little characters running about all over your screen. Basically you have to match the colours and to do that you to make them walk into each other or avoid each other Stubies depending on what type of Stubie they are.   As I said before it starts off really easy just [...]

When is Ingress coming to iOS ?

By |2017-02-08T01:19:02+01:00February 2nd, 2014|Categories: Games, Mobile apps|

What is Ingress Ingress is an  MMOARG (massively multiplayer online alternate reality game) created by Niantic labs - which is a start up within Google.  The concept of the game is supposed to be similar to games such as World of Warcraft, but I think that's just a MMO reference rather than features. SO when is Ingress coming to iOS ? The game has been available on Google Play for android users  just over a year with a suggested 1 million users and it only came out of Beta in November.  I am dying to see the game play rather that just read about it or watch videos but I am still waiting for Ingress to come out on iPhone. Some people are calling this game a social media network because again of its online multiplayer theme.  The good thing about its that you can chat to people via the game but also people are creating google+ communities to discuss tactics and to get to know each other further.  Not just anybody though, there are two teams or frations on Ingress -  The [...]

Best Games in 30 Years of Gaming

By |2017-02-08T01:19:07+01:00January 16th, 2014|Categories: Games|

In the last 30 years of gaming what do you think were the most successful video games? Have you been gaming that long? I know I have and seeing this interactive infographic by MeccaBingo makes you feel very old. Especially when you realise that the original Mario Bros game about Mario the Italian-American plumber came out in 1983 on the Atari - oh and what a wonderful arcade game we thought that was, playing it late into the night. The first video games Of course video games didn't first appear 1983 there were games as far back as the 1950's that were played on huge computers. However, gaming wasn't super popular until the 1970's when we first saw PONG and later that century we got Space Invaders which was a huge success on arcade cabinets and tables.  However it really kicked off in the 1980's when we saw the second round of gaming computers, such as the Commodore and the Sinclair. Soon, gaming consoles were more available these were easier to set up and easier to use.   And wasn't really until [...]
