You'll be happy to know that unlike Be, dealspwn has no plans to be a broadband service provider

uk internet domination is a better plan lol

Guys, you might see that the Dealspwn feed has been integrated into the blog widget, on the right hand side of the HUKD pages. If it doesn't look quite right, you might have to do a forced refresh, pressing Ctrl+F5 should sort things out. Thanks

Looks nice! I'm sure it'll satisfy lot of gamers on hukd

'Dave' is the marketing company behind the mess that Be has become.

Blog looks ok, but it has posts going back quite a while... has it been around for a while?

I wonder if I'm autobanned on all HUKD blogs because I call the other Paul a **** too much?

I've kinda made up with bitterwallet. Maybe I'll hate on this instead?

Looks like the usual wannabe gaming rubbish as the name implies, it's clearly not written for or by gamers as the content is over simplistic or simply irrelevent. The first article currently there is LittleBigPlanet - how many gamers don't know what this game is? It's one of the flagship titles for the console and it's been out for months after being long awaited. The information on the game reads like it was just copy/pasted from marketting PR material, there's little useful information and an obvious lack of balance with no mention of any downsides to the game. Apparently the game is like Mario...what Mario? The series has been 3D for a long time and the article gets it completely wrong by claiming Mario had a rigid world - LittleBigPlanet was clearly heavily influenced by one of the last great 2D Mario games which used the SuperFX chip to generate a flexible and variable environment. I doubt that's the Mario game people have in mind when reading the site though.

As a gamer I'd settle for a games tab or just a list of games bargains as I do a reasonable job keeping up with the games I want to buy as for any other gamers. For those I've overlooked I'd rather see some genuine insight not some rubbish copied off the back of the box or the press release.

Hi everyone. We've been trying to tag all appropriate deals on HUKD with the tag "]games deals" so that might be useful for some of you guys too.

I have to admit I thought I was being a bit too hard on the site but the standard of the articles remains very low and I genuinely fail to see the point in the site at all as the information in the deal threads is considerably more accurate and useful, why go to another site which is essentially a slower, less accurate version of the threads here?

more affiliate links:)

I guess...in response to my comment yesterday they admitted they were just copying the information off the back of the box and didn't have a clue about one of the biggest PC RTS games. I guess they're still having troble getting the 'passionate gamers' admin referred to in the opening post although you'd think they'd have sorted this out before starting the site.

its actually worse than bitterwallet which to be fair at least copies and pastes some interesting articles.

this is just a copy and paste job from threads in here which seem to be summarised by a bored housewife who's only experience of gaming is getting a shot of the kids wii fit.

That sums it up pretty well, the disappointing part is that it wouldn't be hard to find some people interested in games to actually write for the site.

edit - apparently the writers shouldn't be expected to play any games nor bother reading any information about games however cut/paste is entirely justified. Clearly they're a bunch of really passionate gamers..
