FUEL Basketball reaches 1.0 status

FUEL Baskteball is a multiplayer browser game, in which you are put in charge of your basketball team (no surprise there), you have to take care of selecting players, preparing lineups for the matches and of course plan trainings (the usual stuff).

But also you have to be pretty active behind the scenes, where you take care of the financial side of your team, which means signing sponsorship deals, accepting offers of advertising in your arena, take care of ticket prices, not to mention keeping the budget on reasonable level. With introduction of new elements the game just got a bit real, when you have to hire accountant to gain access to some financial data, you have to hire data analyst to gain access to player past or hire scout to spy on your opponents.

In concept the game is similar to other title from the same authors, Football-o-Rama soccer manager, where you are partly kept in the dark when it comes to your team potential and abilities compared to other teams - while unlike in Rama here you can see all of the technical skills of your players straight away, it takes time and money to peek into skills of your opponents, so just like in good old days the court is the testing ground for your team.

While it is simple game with minimalistic interface it could be quite surprising once you get involved in the details behind your team and with 3 matches per week you will have to act quick not to be relegated to lower division - check for yourself on FUEL Basketball website.

It can be assumed, that Wargaming is taking the p!ss

Yes, you could assume that after recent events Wargaming, company behind World of Tanks and World of Warships, would be more careful, but if you assumed that you clearly do not know this company for very long.

It is... a... sort-of... news... I guess

CD Projekt Red announced that they work on Witcher 4! And... that’s about it. No, I forgot, we now know the title! And that is really it.

Let the sarcastic clapping begin!

Cyberpunk 2077, a game with one of the worst premieres in modern times, just became a Game of the Year! No, you didn’t wake up in some parallel universe, although... I’m not that sure to be honest.

New Fallout game is coming!

It is coming in about 12 to 15 years to be exact. After recent presentation of Starfield gameplay Todd Howard confirmed that Fallout is the basic DNA of Bethesda, so of course there will be next title.

I told you so!

This news creates mixed feelings in me - I want to make a smug face and repeat "I told you so!" and at the same time I wish this news was not true. Yes, it is Stalker 2 again. Yes, it’s bad news again. No, I’m not surprised. During the Gamescom 2023 a new trailer of the title was shown and... let’s just say it wasn’t received well.

Before you drop the I word

Before you drop the I word

Or rather the IGMMOIG word. I know, it's not really a word, it's acronym, but "I'm Gonna Make My Own Indie Game" is such a long thing to say. Yes, each week, each month, perhaps even each day someone ...

Gamers are weird creatures

Gamers are weird creatures

Recent developments in several titles made me think that gamers are truly weird, weird creatures that should be studied by science, because it’s not how human kind should work. Or is it?
