Desura has a new owner!
You may remember my article in March about the Desura website going down, where I pondered the future for Desura. Since then the website has been on and off (mainly off) and most people have passed the acceptance stage of grief. Recently it has been announced that the company "OnePlay" has now acquired Desura from Bad JuJu games, along with Indie Royale and Daily Royale. OnePlay have announced this on their website, stating "We are working hard to bring back Desura, IndieRoyale and DailyRoyale to deliver you more awesome indie games". OnePlay currently own their own digital games store, which they launched
The end for Desura?
Is Desura gone forever?So as I am sure many of you know, just under a year ago now, Desura's parent company (Bad Juju Games, Inc) filed for bankruptcy and although the website was still up, it was relatively unsupported and hadn't been updated since last year.A couple of days ago, the website appeared to be down and has not come back up since. Does this mark the end for Desura?A few people have found that the site is accessible after adding the following lines to the end of your host file (C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc): 126.96.36.199 desura.com188.8.131.52 www.desura.com184.108.40.206 static.desura.com220.127.116.11 secure.desura.com18.104.22.168 button.desura.com22.214.171.124 rss.desura.comMeaning, the domain is
Well-written but a little self-indulgent and heavily focused on personal frustration and distaste for the game without actually telling us much about the title at all. I have no real clue what the game involves or what the objectives or goals are?
Glad you finally got the review out, but maybe focusing efforts on reviewing something you don't seemingly loathe intensely would have been a better call, as it's clearly had a negative impact on the overall delivery of this review.
Although it seems Pinky took something valuable from it, so who am I to argue with that?
Hope you're well.November 09, 2022
great review, very informative article now im curious if I would try this game. Of course with mid expectations but its still very colorful and prettyNovember 06, 2022
Blah blah blah ... What beautiful and completely unrelated to what happened here, the words.
Okay, I'm not from Russia. What do you say to the residents of Kazakhstan, Belarus and Ukraine, whose accounts were also banned?
And what do you say when Opium Pulses bans you? They really don't like to fulfill their obligations, you know. There is no user, there are no obligations... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯October 24, 2022
That is a disgusting word to use ,especially knowing what is happening to the Ukrainian people at the moment.
What happened here is the same thing that happened to trading cards on Steam and also the same problem that Alienware has suffered from in the past and is now suffering from again as bad actors have shifted over there on mass..
I wouldn't be surprised to hear it also played a part in other sites restructuring or completely closing down.
To try and blame the site owners for your criminality ,well ,no surprise there.......
The action taken to stop the constant targeted abuse of fun gaming giveaway sites like this does not in any way equate to "genocide" and to suggest so is just shameful and speaks volumes about how certain people's minds work.
We can only hope that one day soon russians will improve their standard of living (and thinking) and they won't feel the need to commit crimes and ruin what is a fun pastime of gamers around the world.October 17, 2022
Wow, sounds fantastic!October 10, 2022
your opinion is imposed by films and the government, in reality it's not at all like thatSeptember 26, 2022
Surprised by the incredibly measured and restrained policy of the site administration. It's incredibly difficult these days. However, trying to be liberal with a bandit nation is always a losing stance. Once again, I am convinced where the Russians are, there is fraud and theft.September 24, 2022
Russian users are like their government. If somewhere someone does something around the rules using hacking, deceit and abuse, then it is always Russians.
It is high time to close the entrance of this contingent of people to all the world's Internet sites.September 24, 2022
