Something topical, gaming for me right now . . .
So as many of you may already know I am a massive gamer, whether it is online or offline, shooter or city builder, love to just take some time out and game for hours. I usually write emotional personal stuff on here, but today I wanna talk gaming!
So in my world of gaming recently, I have been delving into a lot of different games, but the first thing that came up this last week was a game I watched Stumpt play. Decksplash, yeah I had trouble typing that, felt as am sure you will agree like it should be called Dicksplash, well I listened to their thoughts I watched the gameplay and I thought, this is something cool, this could be a lot of fun, the splatoon mixed with Tony Hawks vibe really struck a chord with me. So I thought head to steam and add it to my wishlist. To my surprise however, I found this game has been canned, cancelled, they did 1 week of free access on steam, expecting to get 100,000 players in that time, if not bye bye Decksplash, well it got 36000 apparently, so no more Decksplash. Here is the thing, I had no idea this game existed until I saw Stumpt played it, I also probably caught that particular video of theirs a week or so after it was released, we all have lives ya know? So as much I agree a multiplayer game needs a good player base, expecting it to happen by a free week on steam, not sure it was the wisest move, little faith in the project, little ambition to make it succeed. Time is money seemed to be their arguement but I have never heard of the studio really, I have heard of two of their titles, but this game i liked more than either, I think a longer time frame or more effort in letting people know about it might have resulted in better draw so to speak. I wish developers didn’t do silly stunts like this but a free week had I known would have been a nice consolation prize.
Onwards though, I still sit here with a sily long list of games to dabble in, across a few different platforms, blasting out the psytrance, going back to fifa, wrestling and borderlands more than anything. Impatiently waiting Borderlands next installment and oh let’s not forget sinking hundreds of hours into Rimworld, testing out the Alpha 18 unstable build, in fact I may go stream some more of that now.
