Our PC videos of Bombshell

Our PC videos of Bombshell

Bombshell was released yesterday and here are a few gameplay videos. We can't say we have particularly enjoyed our time on the game, mainly because of the aiming system and the atmosphere (the latter obviously being subjective). If you're interested in the game, check out the videos and make up your own mind about it, but in our opinion, there are way better games to play than this one if you like the genre.

the reviews are out, guess it's a humble bundle purchase for this one.

How does Humble Bundle work, is it a good proposition, I know I'm being lazy by asking instead of doing research, but I rather get the opinion of a PC gamer I respect before looking into it further.

They're pay what you want (starting at $1) bundles with different tiers of rewards depending on what you pay. And it's a charity program too where you can adjust who gets what percentage of your donation. It's good stuff.

FYI, our Youtube channel was shut down because of this game, a game we never asked for which was sent by 3D Realms. We respected the embargo date and they shut down our channel. That's rough for such a poor title...

And you still advertise it?

Well, we say it's not particularly good so it's not advertising per se. But yeah, I don't think we'll ever cover their games again in the future.

Can you appeal youtube? That's fucking absurd (though, not surprising from them).

Youtubes appeal system is borked. This channel with over 350 000 subs can't even appeal properly or even get in contact with a human being. Doesn't matter if you are a big or small fish there, equally broken for everyone.

Nope. We have some kind of agency which takes care of our Youtube channel in case of problems so we contacted them. I also have a nice email I am ready to send to the PR team at 3D Realms to let them know what I think of all this. They sent us a code, we never asked for one. We respected the embargo date, there was no mention of any restrictions whatsoever and they shut us down, no warning. Contacting us to ask us to remove the damn videos no one really wanted to watch would have been the polite way to do it. Now I'm truly pissed at them because we never would have covered the game if it weren't for their email... Had I known, I never would have asked Cprbe to take care of it. What a stupid way to lose a channel, over a bad quality game no one cared about...

Damn that sucks. What an a-hole company.

Those are the ones that you get the most grief from, shitty game devs. Ask Jim Sterling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6s0Wpn1zmU&index=...

Wow... unbelievable. If you start a petition or anything, you have my support.

You go Drift!! The game will BOMB
Commented on 2016-02-02 03:47:01 In reply to Driftwood
Drift, I gotta be honest with you. You guys are in the wrong.

First, you guys received a code for a game you guys didn't even asked for. Yet you guys still received it anyway. Wrong!

Second, you guys knew the game was bad, yet you guys still played it. Wrong!

Third, you guys were never fond of Youtube, yet you guys created a channel anyway. Wrong!

Fourth, the game's title said it all, it's a "bombshell". Yet you guys picked it anyway and it blew in your faces. Wrong!

Fifth, you guys are French, so... automatically wrong. =P

Sixth, and the most important thing here, XCOM 2 received an Essential from EuroGamer, 9.4 from PCGamer, 9.3 from IGN and has a MetaCritic score of 90 after 34 reviews for being a brilliant game. Yet you guys most like won't cover it, but you guys covered Bombshell, a game with a MetaCritic score of 43, of which 12 reviews give it less than average! W.R.O.N.G!!!!!

I rest my case, ladies and gentleman. XD

PS. I know that you guys are looking for a Strategy fan to cover Strategy games, I just thought the sixth point was the funniest of them all, so I couldn't resist putting it in.

Good luck with getting Gamersyde's Youtube channel back.
Commented on 2016-02-02 07:18:44
It's back apparently but I don't know what made them change their mind and why they struck the channel in the first place.
Commented on 2016-02-02 11:08:41
We've been told it was a technical issue on Youtube's part... So the incompetent people might not be at 3D Realms after all. I wonder why it was indicated that 3D Realms had filed a copyrights claim though. End of the story.
Commented on 2016-02-02 17:42:14
Its a shame this game is such a stinker the early trailers were really good.
PS. It was probably a third party automatic DMCA bot that sent a DMCA/ takedown request to the Youtube channel (they make loads of mistakes they look at video names and hash tags and video/audio etc tags to identify infringement and are very often incorrect often DMCAing/ taking down completely legitimate law abiding websites.
