  • PlayStation digital refund policy in spotlight on BBC's Watchdog tonight

    @mega-gazz:
    "then that is sonys fault for having a system that can be so easily abused."
    Well... but in all honestly I think biggest problem is customers lazyness, because most of them want "one button purchase" to make it more comfortable.
    In my opinion, it should be illegal to store complete credit card information, that can be used for purchase. Credit cards have the short security code for this purpose. Save everything except this number. user should put this number each time he is making the purchase.
    But people are lazy, so companies are saving even this numerb to make it more comfortable. But the result is same as removing pin number.

    Personally Im surprised when companies make such a deal in case of refunds in such cases. It is just 40 bucks. I mean the money they paid to the support guy had to be bigger. But more importanly their are losing customer satisfaction, company image, etc with much bigger value.
    I mean - they are theoretically right. he could own the PS3. And just before he decided to sell it, he may try to get his last purchase back (because he did not care about ban anymore). But what are the odds? This is not some loophole with risk, other customers will start using on mass scale.
    So in the end - it is really surprising Sony went through all this for 40 buck, they paid in the end anyway.

  • Forget the fantasy, Life is Strange finds its soul in the real world

    @losaa:
    Too bad for me. English is onl foreign language I understand. So if the french book was not translated yet... I will have to hope for the series :-/
    But at least it is good to know, that Life is Strange is in good hands. :-D

    Im still ittle afraid of "Lost" ending :-D Actaully even for the next episode. Im really curious how will they handle the ending from the point of plot structure. Because at this point they basically thrown everything you did into the toilet a you are starting from scratch. Everything changed. Your choices never happened. All the events did not happened. Characters and relationships changed. I really hope they will surprise us. At this point the story can be very wrong and bad. Or absolutelly briliant and surpsire us. For example I really hope, that the so far minor collestibls (=photos) will start playing imoprtant role in the story because of your new power. And basically if you missed some, it is a "choice" that will hae concequences. Something like this would be awesome gameplay twist :-D

    Life is Strange is awesome. Im still not sure, if it is writen and directed by some genius, or if they were just lucky... but so far they are hitting everything (atmosphere, pacing, mystery, cliffhangers, characters, foreshadowing, ...) just right.
    It is very difficult to descripe, but the way how this game is told feels much deaper and thoughtful than in other games. It is not just a series of scenes, but everything seems to have its purpose and place. And small minor details became important later (like some posters from the beggining of the game, bird on wndow in second episode,...). The pacing is also correct and even when the game is slower, it seems it has its own purpose (like even when nothing story related is happening, the game is indroducing every single character, or building the set up for the finale, etc.)
    As I said, very difficult to descripe. But palying it is great experience.

    I also love that they thrown away many stereotypes (many pulishers can not even imagine games without them anymore). I mean - three episodes into interactive story and there was no single QTE!!!! And it is not a problem! We have dorky female lead, who is not a "default model beauty". And it works. We have half of the story related to commond daily school issues of common people... and it works.
    Honestly Im really very surprised someony actually approved such project (on paper it sounds like complete dissaster), but Im so glad, they did.

    The Life is Strange ep3 was released same day as Witcher 3. I believe Im not the only one who started LiS first and W3 later. In this content it also shows something about the qualities.

    Of course there is still risk that we will have "Lost" ending... but lest hope not :-D

    I palyed just for a while. Seems like a good game, hat will drag me in. But far from perfect. Some details can be patched (tiny texts), some are annoying but not game breaking (not all animations connect properly. Sometimes you teleport form one pose to other, because the game has no animation - for example when jumping from the bottom of the ladder, you will be just teleported to the standing position next to it, etc.).
    And some will be unchanged. Honestly after just playing Bloodborne, Dark Souls II SotFS and little bit of first Dark Souls, I jsut dont find the combat satisfying :-(

    But luckily for me, I prefer good stories and atmosphere in the games (one of the reasons why I actually finished Life is Strane ep3 bfore starting Withcer 3). So I will still enjoy it. But so far it seeme it will be mainly perfecly told story in rich and detailech world, but gameplay will lack depth :-(

  • Oculus Rift won't block virtual reality porn

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 19/05/2015

    I believe I alerady see some video of this. Not the projected movie itself, but they shown reaction of the people using VR to watch that. Seems like they liked it... until the big finish... because it was from first peron and probably from the ladies point of view, the guys usually started screaming :-D Reply +4

    @Poncho_D:
    Defragment tool is probably not a great example, because it is a system tool for HW management. maybe not used by everyone, but making it part of OS makes sense. Im mailny takling about all these antivirus SW, office suites, and other stuff that is periodically asking for activation.

    Well. I remember times, that when you bring a new computer home, you take out bunch of CDs and spent one day installing all stuff you needed.
    Now when you buy a new PC, you need to spent one day uninstalling all the stuff you dont want.
    How is the time changing :-D
    But honestly... I strongly againts this. In my opinion OS should be just OS. With possibility to run installed SW that user wants.

    Maybe MS should copy Kindle strategy and provide two versions. One will be cheaper sponzored by "advertisement" (because honestly preinstalling free2pay games and demos of different SW is nothing else than advertisement), but also offer clean (more expensive :-() versions, that I can use if I want to ahve control over stuff in my pc.

  • The Elder Scrolls Online won't require CD key on console, Bethesda clarifies

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 15/05/2015

    Well. Good move from them. This time it is win win. The game will milk money from players any way. So for them re-selled game to new owner who will play it has much bigger value, than copy that is jsut sitting on the shelf unused. Reply -1

    That is something nobody know.
    Once the goas was reached some backers may seem it pointless to sent money anymore. But they would if the goal was close but not yet reach.

  • Life is Strange: Episode 3 release date

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 14/05/2015

    Cant wait. But honestly... the story needs to pick on. The pacing of the first episode was great. You got to know the characters, the story background and started several individual plot lines.
    But honestly - the second episode did not moved the story much forward and I felt like almost nothing happened. It was just event that did not felt important for the story as a whole.
    Considering we will get to the 60% of the story in this episode they really need to start moving it somewhere. Otherwise I will start to be afraid the The Lost ending like there will be lots of questions, but no time to answer them.
