EA situation in few senteces and why it’s good for us

Here is the whole situation in a nutshell. EA releases their brand new AAA title – Star Wars Battlefront 2. There even is a collector’s edition, goes for $80 (wtf). The game itself has locked content in it (like guns, equipment etc) and requires you to play around 4500 hours to unlock all of it. It’s fucking crazy.

What’s more crazy? You can skip the unlocking part and get all of the unlocks for $2100. You’ve read that right.

So naturally the gamers were furious and it was pretty cool and trendy (and right) to just give back that piece of shit and use their refund optionwhich was suddenly gone.

So basically if you wanted to get a refund you had to wait in line, on hold, for an hour. Internet does not forget and I really hope that all of their competitors won’t pull the same tricks on us, I’m talking to you Valve (mostly), GOG, Blizzard (they’re too good to fuck stuff like that up) and others.

GOG launches Polish store with regional prices!

As you probably know GOG is a Polish company, it was one of the first Steam alternative stores back in 2008 (it showed up pretty much the same as our site). CD Projekt has done a lot of good stuff since then: no DRM, nice prices, bringing really old games to modern computers etc. + The Witcher series, well kind of, it’s a different department).

They have finally launched the Polish store today which means Polish people get more localized games (with subtitles and audio tracks), better prices and goodies for start (free games).

You can read more about it on GOG.com!

“You Are Not Alone” in partnership with GamesPlanet!

The Town of Light: Charity-Event “You Are Not Alone” in partnership with GamesPlanet :-)

Mental health is a topic that concerns us all. Affected people often suffer quietly and secretly, have difficulties to make real-life friendships, practice professions or, in general, are having hard times to enjoy life. Social isolation often threatens. Depressions, anxiety, psychosis, mental illness, are haunting in the minds of those people, often associated with various physical symptoms.

We all know fellow human beings who are dependent on the support of family, friends or colleagues. They need us. These people should not be alone, so please take a moment to look around and see if there is someone in the need for a boost, some help, or even just a casual chat. Talking can often help quite a bit for the large majority of people. Help is out there… You are not alone.

The game is available at Gamesplanet right now, and if you purchase this adventure game prior to September 6th 2017 then GamesPlanet’s net income will be transferred to the “You Are Not Alone” promotion, in addition to the share the publisher donates.

Wired Productions, the publisher of The Town of Light which became the catalyst for starting a year-long campaign to raise awareness for mental health, decided to give away proceeds from all sales of the game and raise money through fundraising activities to support great charities like TakeThis and others in an attempt to ‘make some noise’.

The first promotion starts today August 16th up and lasts until September 6th. During this period Wired Productions will put 25% of all their net receipts from digital sales (on all formats) into a fund to be distributed to charities that help cases involving Mental Health. GamesPlanet will also be supporting this bold move and promises to donate the full sales margin on top, to support raising money and increase attention for mental health issues.

Leo Zullo has been in the video games industry for over 20 years. In 2008, he co-founded Wired Productions and the company has been independent ever since. He had this to say regarding the charity promotion:

When you look at your own life and circle, you realise the extent of the situation. There have been lots of people around me suffering, usually in silence. Friends have been sectioned, attempted and even committed suicide. I’ve borne witness to people having psychotic episodes, dealing with severe depression and anxiety attacks. This is just my circle, everyday people who are having to deal with mental illness in silence. The biggest personal irony is that, had the Italian Government not closed down Volterra 30 years ago, I would be going there to visit one of its patients today.

The Town of Light – The first in a series to support mental health

The game, based on extensive research and inspired by real facts, is a first-person psychological story driven adventure game set in the Volterra Psychiatric Asylum. Based in Tuscany, Italy, the asylum was shut down in the late 1970’s by a law from the Italian government which instructed all asylums to close completely and give back patients their civil rights. Explore the asylum as it stands to this day and uncover the good and the bad that humankind has to offer.
