The History of Gearbox & How Their Games Began
Gearbox Software was founded in 1999 by Randy Pitchford, Brian Martel, Stephen Bahl, Landon Montgomery and Rob Heironimus, all former developers of the cringingly-named studio “Rebel Boat Rocker”, a studio that never managed to release a single game. Before this, core members of the group worked for studios such as 3D Realms and Bethesda Softworks.Gearbox’s first few projects might come as a surprise to some, being a mostly unproven studio without a single game to their name up to this point outside of their early efforts in well-established studios (which might be what got them the gig). Developing official expansions and
The Weird World of Peripheral Rhythm Games
Peripheral instrument-based rhythm games really became a thing (at least in the west) during the mid-2000s, with Red Octane’s (and later Activison’s) ‘Guitar Hero’ title for the Playstation 2. But between 1999 and 2007 Konami had already been releasing various versions of their GuitarFreaks, DrumMania, KeyboardMania and BeatMania games for Playstation consoles in Japan. Konami continues to release sequels to the arcades as late as 2018, more recently under the ‘Gitadora’ name.The genre was relatively successful (if not saturated) between 2005 and 2010, before having a final stab at reinvigorating its fan base in 2015, where it soon fizzled out once

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
