Tomb Raider Movie: Well this isn’t a great start…


Well Hollywood that certainly isn’t a great start for another movie based off a video game franchise, you would think with their multi-million dollar budget they would at least do a proper job when photoshopping the poster for the new Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander:

Well shit, is Lara now some sort of giraffe-necked mutant?  Looks like her head is about to pop off the rest of her body and start migrating in a herd with the rest of the giraffe in Africa. Must suck for the movies PR team when everyone is talking about your bad photoshop instead of the actual movie…

Attention Polygon: I am free if you need a video game reporter


Dear Polygon, I saw your advert posted on the 30th of August 2017. I know the closing date was the 10th of September, but I think I am the perfect candidate for the job! Why you may ask? Well, I managed to complete DOOM on medium difficulty without having too much trouble. I also definitely know where to switch on my PlayStation 4, so popping in a game to review it won’t be a problem for me. And last but not least I have 20 years gaming experience behind me so getting past the Cuphead tutorial shouldn’t be a problem for me. I am also more than willing to dye my hair any color of the social justice rainbow and take a quick course in gender studies. Hope to hear from you soon!

This is usually done in an attempt to force developers and publishers to listen when other attempts have failed. Most notable example of review bombings was The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was review bombed in 2015 by gamers who were angry about the game’s introduction of paid mods, leading Valve to reverse their decision and remove the paid mod functionality. The latest review bombing comes courtesy of Campo Santo’s Firewatch, after Sean Vanaman decided to make it personal and go after PewDiePie via illegal means. So PewDiePie’s fans decided to hit back at them.

What Is Kekistan?


“What is Kekistan? Let’s explore what Kekistan is, what it is not and how it’s portrayed incorrectly by places like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the media. I know this is ‘explaining a meme’, but I’ve rarely seen a meme adopted and used so quickly by so many people. And if the media won’t get it right, we have to do it for them.”Source

Shouldn’t paid loot boxes be considerd gambling?


Loot boxes have pretty much become a standard feature for almost all online games these days. For those who have been living under a rock how loot boxes work in video games is that you pay a small amount for a box that might or might not contain a rare item. But most of the time it is an item that has almost zero value. And just like gambling, the odds are stacked against you, and in most cases, the house always wins. But what about real-world collectible like baseball cards? Aren’t they based on the exact same thing? Well no, with baseball cards you are hoping to get one of the valuable cards or maybe a duplicate of a valuable card you already own which you can then re-sell or trade to recoup the cost of your collection.
