Gamersyde downtime

You may or may not have noticed that Gamersyde was down for a few hours this morning, after our hosting ovh changed the wrong hard drive on the server, having us reboot to the site as it was on December 15 2012. Joy. I've restored the nightly backup of the database, and the weekly backup of the galeries, and we are actively working on fixing the few still broken news. Sorry about that!

Prepare the tar and feathers guys, we got our culprit!
It's a pure hardware problem, nothing anyone could have done about it.

No one noticed, and that tells you a lot. This site is becomming a Beast in every way possible.

I remember coming to this site by the time ALL Playstation videos were getting 1 star rating - even games like Uncharted and such - while the rest were getting 3, 4 or more stars regardless of its quality. Even by then you could see the site and its content had a huge potential. I remember I was like: "man, such shame that a quality place like this is so ridiculously one sided". Well, the truth is times have changed and the site got a whole lot better and fair, even in the community department.

Last night was the Tablets features, and you can almost sense this guys are trying their best with hard work to push this place to another level, which by now I think it really deserves.

Thank you for everything. Love your work

That would have taken hours to get them to do that, and in the meantime we were still down. It was faster to just restore from the backup, considering how little content we would be losing.
We'll be migrating to a brand new server in a few days.

What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog [url] so cool (24 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog hellblade and ryse both had way more basic combat that literally just centered around weak and strong attacks. there was nothing else there to play around with. (26 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and then you have the boy, who distracts, staggers and sets you up for more volleys. now compare that to hellblade or ryse...and you honestly can't see the difference? (29 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog then you've got the elements associated with the axe itself, where you can freeze enemies (and i assume other elements will be introduced later too) and do powered up elemental attacks (30 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog there seem to be a decent depth to the combat in god of war. with staggers, shield barges, slow mo air juggles, grabs, axe throws, and standard hacking. (32 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: if you think that looks like ryse then i really don't know what to tell you. doesnt look anything like ryse or hellblade to me outside of a camera angle. (33 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @alimokrane: agree, if the enemy variety is there as well it could be an awesome combat system, especially for an over the shoulder camera game. Camera does zoom out for larger fights btw (1 Hour ago)
