Today's #GamingGalleon is up, and a little different to usual. I wanted to look at the ethical impacts of patching our games and software.
Whilst it's great that we get constant updates and balance, how has this affected gaming?
RTs always appreciated!
How's 3.7 going for you all?
I'm breaking my Mon/Wed/Fri blog schedule on #GamingGalleon to post my thoughts on the @Armajet open Beta for Android.
See what I think of the game after a quick evening of jumping around with the game!
Are you playing? Let me know your thoughts too!
A new blog post is up on #GamingGalleon, today looking at the ridiculous controversy taking the #DeadorAlive community (and apparently #ResidentEvil, #TombRaider, and Arkham communities), not so much "by storm", but more "by drizzle".
A new #GamingGalleon blog post is up!
Today I'm looking at how @CnCRivals is faring after two weeks of play. Has my opinion on anything changed?
Spoiler alert: I am even more in love with #CnCRivals than before!
Please remember I am British originally, and this is early September.
October (affectionately known as "Suicide Month" here) is going to be a living hell... Literally, with the fire and the burning...
Here’s an idea: form a voluntary “Fediverse Code” that limits the size of instances to a small number. Say 100 or, at most 1,000. Any instances larger than that size are blocked.
The mega-instances we have today, like .social, voluntarily agree to cull their numbers over a period of time; aiding the migration to other instances.
The fediverse is already hugely centralised and unless we do something about it, it will be ruled by a handful of feudal lords/Mini-Jacks.
For my entire IT career, I've worked on internal systems so I've never really been able to show off the kinds of things I do all day. Hearthstone gave me a personal side project that shows off the kinds of things I do day to day (data collection, cleansing, data viz, etc) and helps pro players in the process. That's pretty satisfying.
Yeah, I know that's a lot of #GamingGalleon blog posts in one go, but I've just relocated to Mastodon and there's a lot to catch up on!
#GamingGalleon updates every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Since 2K Games released their press statement regarding #lootboxes in games, I wanted to take a look at the concept. Are Lootboxes Gambling?
Why are we, as gamers, so quick to jump on the negativity bandwagon? I explored this concept for a piece on #GamingGalleon. Let me know your thoughts on the issue.
Living in Africa, gaming takes on a whole new angle - I have to be careful what games I buy as not all developers support us down here.
I wrote about this for #GamingGalleon. Let me know what you think!
I've been writing a series of #Vainglory posts for my #GamingGalleon blog. It's called #OnTheRise and documents my journey from a new player to (hopefully) Vainglorious, with all of the things I'm learning in the way.
Let me know what you think!
