Angrytank Time: COD:MW2 PC Delayed

Come on everybody! Climb aboard! This is the Angrytank Express, headed direct to Stop Screwing Over The PC You Massive Bastards city. Like pretty much every fuggin' thing that has a multi-platform release, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on PC has, it now transpires, been delayed. Only by a fortnight, but still - for God's sakes. Toot toot! The Angrytank Is Go!

Death To SecuROM!

Hah - got you! You totally thought this was going to be some 8,000 word rant against Sony's widely-loathed DRM, didn't you? Oh, there's enough of them on the internet already - I'm quite happy to say limited activations are horrible and stupid and everyone involved should know better, and leave it at that. This sorta-RPG webgame game goes further, pitching the devil-DRM as the…

The TF2 Unlock Teacup-Storm

I've been out of the TF2 scene for a few months now, as all that focus on achievement-whoring and increasingly technical play turned me off the game somewhat - paranoia I couldn't keep up with The Kids as much as anything else. However, the combination of a masterful marketing effort and the promise of new toys that didn't require incredi-skill or soulless grinding to attain…

The Top 10 Angry Internet Man Angerers of 2008

Tis the season to write round-ups, tralalala la la la laaaah. I know we've covered much of the same ground in our award-winning* Now That's Why I Love A Best 2008 Ever series, but I figured there's room for a separate look back at the biggest storms in teacups of the year that's nearly gone. Has it really been a year with more flashpoints than…

Diabo III: Antagonism & Screenshots

It's a funny thing, Diablo III. On the one hand, we know practically everything we need to know about it, based on confirmation that's it sticking closely to what's gone before. On the other, we have very little HARD FACT about it. We only know what two of the character classes are, for instance, while multiplayer system Battle.net 2 remains largely under wraps. For now,…

Spore War

People really don't like DRM. And a small but very passionate/ferocious group of people really, really, really don't like DRM. They've struck back by shaping Amazon's user reviews of Spore en masse, bringing its average rating down to just one star. While I'm aware it's a major issue for a lot of gamers, I think it's a hateful thing to do on this kind of…

A Dirty Word

If you've been following the 200+ comments in the thread below our recent discussion of our experiences in the Warhammer Online closed beta, you'll have spotted that a vocal minority of the WAR community, having made their way here thanks to a link on the warhammeronline.com frontpage, are absolutely furious with us. All those that were simply critical remain, but there were at least another…

Eve Online And The Big Nerf

I've been playing Eve Online on and off for about five years now and I don't think I've ever seen as much controversy as that being generated by the most recently proposed changes. These changes basically concern how fast medium sized spaceships should go, and what the ramifications for the rest of the game will be if they're made to slow down. The mixture of…

007: Quantum of Solace / Meer: Shedload of Griping

Preview wot I wrote about the upcoming Bond game is up over on Eurogamer. It's not, suffice to say, one of those 'lalalalalala everything is shiny wooo' previews: It might end up feeling like Bond skins taped over a hasty Any-FPS skeleton. While we've only seen two levels so far, the bizarre presence in those of exploding fuel tanks ("mousetraps", according to Treyarch) inside a…

E3 Rubbish, Say Bigwigs

From our comfortable slouch in front of our dusty LCD screens, E3 2008's seemed surprisingly fertile after last year's dampest of squibs. Perhaps there weren't many omigosh new announcements, but it gave a glad chance to see long-awaited shinies such as Dragon Age, Fallout 3 (DON'T SAY A BLOODY WORD), Spore, Mirror's Edge, Dawn of War II, Borderlands, Alpha Protocol and more in extensive action.…

Ain’t No Pleasin’ Some Folks

You'd have thought "sequel to beloved game announced after eight year silence" would be good news for Diablo fans. And to most, it was. Not everyone felt the same way though - an undercurrent of disappointed muttering had it that the game looked too bright and cartoonish compared to its darker predecessors. Most of us will doubtless wait to see what the game's actually like…

WAR Wars

This is possibly best saved for The Sunday Papers, but seeing as we've been nattering about Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning lately anyway, I reckoned it was worth its own post. If you're an active follower of WAR you'll already be aware of this, but those less ingrained in MMO society can roll their eyes at this startling storm in a teacup. MMO site Massively.com…

“Well What’s Happenin’, C&C Community?”

I hesitate slightly to post about this, as the last time I talked about C&C: Red Alert's music and offhandedly mentioned that it had never especially moved me personally, I received a furious email from an Angry Internet Man about how I had zero music taste and should show some respect for what its composer Frank Klepacki had done for gaming. Going on the below…

Breaking The Chain: Bioshock DRM Now Less Evil

Gosh, all that hoo-hah about Bioshock's limited number of installations and activation process seems like a long time ago, but I suspect it's still an open wound for some folk. A vocal portion of Bioshock's players were angry - "Ken Levine personally kicked my girlfriend to death" angry. Will they be any less angry now 2K's lightened its infamously ruthless DRM (as promised many moons…

Pyro Maniacs: Achieving Nothing in TF2

This isn't a rant for or against Team Fortress 2 Achievement servers. It's a recounting of the bizarre/hilarious/terrifying experience I had on one of them - yes, my personal reactions to what I encountered do inevitably slip in, but mostly it's a portrait of this unique facet of gaming subculture. Whether you agree or disagree with their existence, these beat-the-system servers are fascinating enough to…

Final Crysis

Epic do it. id do it. Even educated fleas do it. And now Crytek have announced they too are dumping PC exclusives. VG247 spots Crytek's Cevat Yerli telling PC Play about the aftershocks of Crysis: "We are suffering currently from the huge piracy that is encompassing Crysis. We seem to lead the charts in piracy by a large margin. I believe that’s the core problem…
