TGA 2023 Felt Like A Successor To E3, For Better or Worse

A lot of substance, not enough respect.

gold_drake187d ago

i dont quite understand what people want this award show to be ?
a ridiculous woke environmental climate friendly show or a show about videogames?

not everything needs to be addressed. most people dont know the ins and outs of everything going on in the industry and therefore dont rly care all too much.

lets focus on the games and not on specific groups of people alone.

I would take an hour of gameplay and in game trailers, and an hour of interviews and award acceptance. They need to strip out all of the other nonsense. This event should not just be one long advertisement, they have already raided our wallets. Shows like this are supposed to be for the gamers and the culture of the industry.

gold_drake186d ago (Edited 186d ago )

sure but what kind of advertisement, besides hamepass haha, did we see?

we saw alot of awards being given out, loads of trailers etc.
ok, to your point, we saw an ad for the fallout show.

i agree on the celebrity thing, there was literally no need for some of them to ve there. at all lol.

but other than that ... comedy stuff wasnt rly advertisement.

anast186d ago (Edited 186d ago )

They need to show gameplay, most trailers are adverts for preorders. One example is that Banishers advert trying to sell the collectors edition plastic statue.

Well, if E3 is really dead, TGA will obviously take its place.

BrainSyphoned186d ago

I watched the MW3 joke and then a compilation of the trailers. E3 I'd at least watch a few showcases. They both are mostly irrelevant.
PS and Nintendo show off what they have made in their own videos. Xbox lets us know what they have bought/monopolized monthly for game pass, you don't need anything more than that.

Jingsing186d ago

It is Geoff Keighleys vanity show, stopped watching it years ago.

ROCKY28186d ago

TRASH TRASH TRASH
Bring E3 back and all is good

JK does both GA & GF for his own self profit
Jeff could not find another job if he tried - the very green production is always off and has major problems
Kill both shows and the world will be in a better place !

Valve facing £656,000,000 lawsuit over claims Steam is ripping off players

The owner of Steam has been accused of overcharging 14 million PC gamers in the UK and 'shutting out' competition in a new lawsuit.

Overcharging? Have these people never heard of sales?

just_looken10h ago(Edited 10h ago)

"Valve, the owner of Steam, is being sued for £656m over claims it is abusing its dominant market position to overcharge players.

The collective action claim has been filed with the UK’s Competition Appeal Tribunal by digital rights campaigner Vicki Shotbolt.

In the lawsuit, Shotbolt accuses Valve of ‘shutting out’ competition when it comes to buying PC games and DLC, which has led to 14m people in the UK being overcharged for PC games as a result.

The claim is seeking up to £44 compensation for every UK player who has bought a PC game or add-on content from June 5, 2018."

So they are trying to take the apple/sony/xbox approach were there is only one store without ever using a pc for gaming.

Anyone with a ounce of pc gaming knowledge knows steam did nothing when competition and the launcher war happened but now every publisher that had there own launcher with games only available on that platform are slowing coming back to steam.

This "lawsuit" should be directed to launcher's like rockstar's as they have games only available on there like the gta collection or ubisoft with xdefiant heck epic launcher exclusive games. There is no grounds in which steam has locked down content to there platform except there own games though there are disc versions of those except half life alex.

Pc players still have the best choice on game buying with multiple launcher's and site that offers keys like my fav humble bundle but on the same platform we have the worst drm along with those 3rd part launcher's that need to run in the background.

anast10h ago

How about suing them for the game files that the customer should own?

Goodguy0110h ago

Steam allows 3rd party apps (which I hate) and...we all know that egs is the one that keeps buying exclusivity lol. A lot of devs and consumers rely on steam hence it's very heavy support.

paulust20028h ago

If I get 44 pound from them I'll only be spending it in the steam store...fucking absurd ..one of the most ethical companies out there and largely due to them not being a public offering imo

Those flowers coming from me would be dead. EA will never, ever again get accolades from me with how they have ran their business, killed developers, killed franchises, monopolized IP and licenses.

Nothing but dead flowers.

Goodguy0112h ago

Was an interesting idea at first but...ruined by EA...
