 Mafia III - Do NOT pre-order!  

Posted by Mr Robville @ 8:30pm BST on Monday 16th May 2016[6 Comment(s)]

 


If anyone has watched the latest storyline trailer or other videos from Mafia III, you may have noticed that at the end of these videos there's a banner telling you to pre-purchase the game in order to get the "Family Kick Back" DLC consisting of 3 weapons and 3 cars. As much as it may be tempting, DO. NOT. PRE. ORDER.

Here's why in case anyone finds this an odd thing to say;

Remember Mafia 2 when it came out? It had loads of day one DLC packages which all turned out to already be installed in the game but simply required unlocking. It was content you already owned but had to pay extra for. The exact same thing is happening with this as well. Developers have already made content, and decided to cut parts away from the game to sell for an additional profit.

"Yeah but Mr Robville, the game is not a cent more expensive than the normal retail price when it comes out, you are retarded man, get a life."

If that thought crossed your mind, then kudo's to the developer because that's exactly what they want you to think. You know what's the problem with this?
By pre-ordering/purchasing, you are giving the developers money for a product without guarantee that it is of any quality. Once you have that pre-order and the game turns out to be trash, your money is gone. At full price even. Besides, you may think you are making a smart deal, but you are simply paying for the content that should have been in the game to begin with. Developers know people are gullible enough to fall for it.

Developers shouldn't be rewarded for cutting down content and selling it as day one DLC. If you have seen the latest Driving in New Bordeaux video, you can already notice that this game is anywhere but close to the original vision of the Mafia games. They've ditched the realistic focus that the previous 2 games were known for that every Mafia fan loves about the series and decided to go for a casual Michael Bay/ Call of Duty-esque Hollywood shooter.

No one can stop you from pre-ordering, but if you do and the game is a let down, you deserve everything you get.

"So what should I do then Mr Robville?"

Wait. Simply wait. It's just 1 or 2 days before the first honest unpaid and unbiased reviews come out (so avoid IGN like the damn plague). If the game turns out bad, you have saved yourself some money. It will then only be a matter of weeks until you can find it in the budget corner. If the game turns out good, buy it then. The DLC is probably disk locked content anyways like they've done with Mafia 2 because that would be a lot easier for the developer to distribute, I can tell from experience having worked for a company that published on Steam. So it's only a matter of a few days before the first modders unlock this content without you having to buy it.
And even if it isn't disk locked content, practices like this shouldn't be rewarded to the developers so I would recommend getting it from places that doesn't involve your wallet.

Day one DLC is a disease in the gaming industry that's putting greed before gamers. Us gamers, especially as Mafia fans, shouldn't stand for this nonsense.

Still on the fence on whether or not to pre-order? I would recommend watching the next bit in This Video.
(The whole thing is worth watching, but I've skipped to the relevant bit for you)

Let's stand against corporate greed folks!

 Breakthrough in Mafia 2 modding!  

Posted by Mr Robville @ 7:58pm BST on Monday 16th May 2016[0 Comment(s)]

 
Took a while before I could write this as it should have been posted sooner, anyways!
A Russan modder has achieved what we have been waiting for a long time ever since the release of Mafia 2; he cracked the code allowing custom models to be placed into the game! And not just static collision-less eye candy, no, real working vehicles as well!





Check out our downloads page for the first downloadable cars for Mafia 2!

I completely forgot to post this when it came out, it puts a few worries to rest namely the way cars drive and explode. I must say the world itself looks very well made.
I apologize for making you watch an IGN video, but hey at least it isn't Kotaku!

 Mafia III World Wide Announcement Trailer  

Posted by Muggy & Mr Robville @ 1:33pm BST on Wednesday 5th August 2015[2 Comment(s)]

 
The trailer is here folks!
After long waiting (one whole week I know! o_O) we've got a taste of Mafia 3's atmosphere:


The game will put the player in the shoes of Lincoln Clay who hopefully gives us a different view on the world of the Mafia outside of the Italian families.
Also in the trailer you see a familliar -yet aged- face of Vito Scaletta, our protagonist from Mafia 2. It will be interesting to see how his story has evolved from M2 as well.

Let us know what you think in our Dedicated discussion topic

 Mafia III.... Finally confirmed!  

Posted by Mr Robville @ 4:46pm BST on Tuesday 28th July 2015[1 Comment(s)]

 


We already had our hopes up after seeing 2K registered a couple domain names mentioning Mafia 3, but now it's finally confirmed: Mafia III will be made.
It's the moment we've all been waiting for. More details can be read here: Polygon.com

The artwork shows what looks like a 70's setting with four main characters including a female character that we haven't seen before in a main cast.
What are your thoughts or hopes of Mafia 3? Let them know here in the comments or within the discussion topic: Mafia III Announcement Topic

More info from 2K games will follow on the 5th of august. Next week!

 Mafia III Practically confirmed  

Posted by Mr Robville @ 11:31am BST on Monday 29th June 2015[4 Comment(s)]

 
Good news for all Mafia fans!
On the 25th of june, Take2Games has registered the domains mafia3thegame.com, mafiaiiithegame.com, mafiathree.com & mafiathreethegame.com. Practically confirming that a new sequel for the Mafia franchise is coming. Source: http://www.dailychanges.com/take2games.com/2015-06-25/

Although it's of course not an official confirmation, I don't think T2 would register these domains because they had nothing better to do.



I'm really looking forward to hear about an official announcement. What do you guys think?

 Mafiascene.net closing down  

Posted by Mr Robville @ 12:46pm BST on Thursday 25th June 2015[3 Comment(s)]

 
Our sister website Mafiascene.net has announced that they will unfortunately close their doors.

Mafiascene.net was created at the time when this site was down because of hosting problems. It offered the modding community a new place to go to and prevented it from falling appart.
Because of MS.com's return, .net's activity gradually decreased over time to where at this point it's concluded that maintenance and upkeep take too much effort compared to the site's activity.

The site will be archived for anyone that wants to read anything back.

I think it's important we all recognize the dedication Joshua -the admin- put into the modding community and his site. Thanks to him we were able to go on when MS.com was down. Therefore a big thank you is in place!


 Lost Heaven Multiplayer - New Update!  

Posted by Mr Robville @ 9:02pm BST on Friday 24th April 2015[0 Comment(s)]

 
What better way to start a weekend than with some good mod news!
The guys of Lost Heaven Multiplayer haven't been sitting still. With their latest update, not only has overall stability and connection been improved, also their server browser has received a new and modern look. For a bigger changelog, see their topic HERE




 Merry Christmas and a happy new year!  

Posted by Mr Robville @ 9:22am GMT on Monday 22nd December 2014[4 Comment(s)]

 


It's that time again, the Christmas trees, lights, and unless you live in the Netherlands- lots of snow.
I think this has been a pretty good year for MafiaScene. The site has recovered quite nicely since it got aired again after the downtime. It's great to see that there are various active discussions being held on the forums and that the last bits of dust have been blown off.

There has also been some very nice progress made on the many mods here in development and it will be interesting to see what 2015 has to offer for us all!

If you haven't already been in the Christmas mood, check out the Sweet Winter mod made by Cukier:

Download Page


At Mafiascene.Net, Joshua has been setting up a system where modders can their own mod page with related download links. I think this can be very cool as we can create some kind of modders archive/database. e.g. It can be very easy for one to find all of the mods from one specific modder. When I get the chance I'll create a page for the Titanic mod, in the meantime, everyone is already free to add any content if they like.

Together we're keeping this community alive, cheers!

Unfortunately time moves on; people move on. Yes it would be nice to go back to the good ol' times but we have to face reality. There are a few still that are die-hard fans - but a lot of us are older. At least the modding community is still thriving. Wink
