  • Kickstarter for Rollcage spiritual successor canned

    I'm also in the "want this but not going near Kickstarter" camp.

    It's q grand idea until stuff gets pulled, exactly like this.

  • Surprise! Dying Light now has a co-op console demo

    @Folant What did you not like about it?

    I thought the story was generic rubbish, the characters were coma inducing and the combat was just dull.

    @Ivattthestanier

    As far as I'm aware, the multiplayer doesn't come on the Halo disc, and the "patch" you're downloading contains it, so it's over 15Gb, hence it takes ages.

    Even if you pop a disc into the console it takes ages to get going vs. the PS4.

    Guess what? I don't talk about videogames much in real life or use any other forums, so I'm using this here video game forum to talk about an issue I have with a video game system.

    Amazing, isn't it?!

    @Acidizer Refer to my post above.

    Just because I no longer own it doesn't mean that my experiences of it in the almost two years that I did makes them invalid.

    Also if you'd like to pop into the ol' Resogun thread another poster has already pointed out that you are not reading what I wrote (here) correctly.

    Me referring to my ownership of a plastic box that I had for almost two years in the present tense a few days after I got rid of it is called a slip of the tongue.

    If you think it's laughable then you need to get out more.

    @dadrester I did, alas it made not a jot of difference.

    Had a similar issue with the fat PS3 years ago and it cleaned it up nicely.

    I used present tense because until this very week (the Wii U went yesterday), I've owned at least one console for the last 23 years, so it's a force of habit.

    Until last week I've owned a PS4 since a few days after launch. Just because it's not sitting in my house any more doesn't make my shit experiences with it invalid.

    Also, I think you need to relax, you seem to be taking this all very personally.

    Oh sweet fucking Jesus. I spend my 5 years on here posting in Playstation threads and now I'm a troll because I'm unhappy with it to the point where I sold it?

    Yes, it was properly ventilated. Now it's on display in my local CEX.

    Why is this shit binary with you people? Just because I bought it doesn't mean I have to love the fucking thing unconditionally. Likewise, just because I sold it doesn't mean I'm trolling when I ask a valid request.

    Was waiting for someone to say that. Of course it's properly ventilated.

    You can look up videos of people with correctly ventilated consoles going batshit. The problem lies with the build and/or design of the thing.

    @JaqenHGhar80 No, a faulty unit does not make it shit. Owning 3 of them that all sounded like hairdryers, not to mention literally every one of my mates that have a PS4 all have the same problem - that's not a faulty unit, that's a massive design flaw.

    You seem to be under the impression that I'm trying to make this about "PPEEESSSSFOUR vs. Xbawks" - I couldn't give a fiddly what multinational corps. box of silicon and plastic is under your TV. I'm talking about it because I'm (well I was until I sold it last week) a massively dissatisfied PS4 owner. Ground Zeroes made the console sound like a hairdryer. PES 2015 (also a Fox Engine title) also made it go utterly batshit. DF investigates the technical side of things here, including hardware, so why not let them investigate what is turning into an issue for more and more people.

    Do you know why I'm not talking about the 360s failure rate? Because my problem isn't with the 360's failure rate, it's about how the Fox Engine makes the PS4 behave. Which of these things is more relevant to the article? Now who doesn't have a valid argument to work with?

    @JaqenHGhar80 Again, if you actually used the PS4 forum and were part of the community you'd be aware that Sony might take the consoles in, but they come back in the same condition.

    FOr me, having one loud console is bad luck, two is really bad luck, but three of the things? Again, it's not like I'm the only person this has been an issue for. It's widespread and it's a known buil/design flaw.

    Would you care to trawl my post history or see my PSN profile? Because I'm pretty sure I didn't play the arse out of the likes of Resogun, Guilty Gear Xrd, Driveclub and Bloodborne on an X1.

    But if you're happy to suckle at the teats of Sony when they sell you a shit product then be my guest.

    Fair enough!

    And commiserations for working at Gamestop - I worked there for over 5 years. Had left before the PS4 launched but had to handle a lot of RRoD 360s back in the day.

    The joy...

    Except that I've had a launch model, a replacement from this time last year, then a CUH-1100 white model from the start of thid year and they all sounded like hairdryers.

    One forumite had an Asian model - hairdryer.
    Another forumite is based in continental Europe - he had multiple machines that all sounded like hairdryers too. More and more folk on the forum are noting their's is getting uncomfortably loud.

    Just Google "Ps4 noise" it's not an isolated issue. It's a fucking massive design flaw on Sony's part, and one that has cost them my custom after 18 years.

    @Old_Books

    I think the PS4's only hardware flaw is the noise issue... but it's a bloody massive issue. Genuinely gamebreaking for me.

    I can only tip my hat to Microsoft that they made a machine that runs silent and cool (and let's be honest, the power differential between the two consoles really hasn't done anything spectacular in the real world. Most Multiplats look the same).

    You must have played a different version of Ground Zeroes than myself and everyone I know. Leave it on the title screen for a few minutes - your PS4 will sound like it's taxiing for take off.

    @Old_Books Yip, I could hear mine over headphones with music when playing Rocket League.

    I've actually sold on my PS4 (the third one to sound like that) as it is frankly unbearable. Thought it was going to brick during Witcher III. There's a few other forumites that have abandoned the console because of how loud it gets.

    It's high time someone in the gaming press pulled Sony up on this, the PS4 is a shoddy piece of junk.

  • Video: Introducing Low Batteries, a series about mental health and gaming

  • FuzzyDuck 27/08/2015

    Have yet to view the article (in bed and having a quick gawk on my phone!), but am looking forward to it as I've experienced crippling anxiety and depression in the last few years (triggered by two deaths in my immediate family) and on some of the better days I've used gaming as a form of escapism and a crutch (particularly during winter time).

    Also bravo for tackling such an issue and bravo to Eurogamer for running it. Let's continue to smash the stigma of mental illness and be able to discuss it openly and embrace those that need help with it.

    I know we're nothing but cash cows to these companies, but Nintendo are becoming relentless.

    Have OCD tendencies for buying and collecting (mostly) bits of plastic that look like the characters in their games (that you are already paying top.whack for)? Cool, Nintendo have both you and their future profit margins covered.

  • Lego Jurassic World tops the US retail charts for July

  • FuzzyDuck 14/08/2015

    The console that sold the most new software was unsurprisingly the PS4. After all, as of last week it had sold 25.3m units worldwide since its launch in November 2011.
    I'm beginning to think Jeff is just the intern at EG Towers. The amount of typos (that often go beyond simple spelling mistakes and provide some hilariously false information) in his articles are just crazy.

    If I made mistakes as frequently as this I'd be unemployed pretty quickly.

  • One and three month PlayStation Plus subscriptions set for price hike

  • FuzzyDuck 11/08/2015

    @Drakos It might be cheaper in the long run for the year's sub, but that's assuming you're going to be using the sub year-round.

    I myself rarely play online and most of the downloadable games I really want I usually buy outright long before they hit Plus. Then there's the likes of college and secondary school students. Back when I worked in videogame retail, the amount of 3 month Live subs that we sold at the start of the summer holidays was crazy.

    I think this is the final push I need to get rid of the PS4. Flakey online, bugger all new games, questionable build quality of the controllers, it's not a patch on the PS3 in terms of being a media centre, shit value DLC, preorder bullshit, and the sheer noise out of the thing.

    I've been mulling it over but Sony just sealed the deal with this *golf clap*

  • Northern Ireland's government recreates its country in Minecraft

  • FuzzyDuck 30/07/2015

    @carmagain Indeed!

    I also found it funny that for someone who resides in Portland to call the NI government "hipster" a bit ironic (Gerry Adams has always had that beard!), and for him to do so on a site that is used by people living in or close to (I live in a border county in the south).

    I don't want to visit Portland though, mostly for Sleater Kinney.

    Northern Ireland's government, in an attempt to simultaneously seem hip and educational, has recreated its region in Minecraft.
    I thought this was something of a glib comment. Minecraft is a cultural phenomenon and some of the user base is pretty young, so IMO it's an inspired way to try to stimulate interest.

    It could even lead to an interest in stuff like geophysics and ArcGIS (the software that's used to produce the actual OS maps). The island of Ireland might not be the biggest, but there's a shit load of stuff worth seeing here.

  • Face-Off: Journey on PS4

  • FuzzyDuck 28/07/2015

    @freddywayne

    It's called Cross-By. Buy it on one (Sony) format, get the other ones for free. It's a one time fee with unlimited use with all the formats it's available on.

    I bought Hotline Miami in a PS3 sale for about two quid moons ago. The day it launched on PS4 it was just waiting to be downloaded.

    Not all games work like this, but the case with Journey is if you have never played it (like if you moved from 360 to PS4) it's now available on PS4 (there's a PS+ discount on it at the minute too, so it's not a wallet gouge) and if you bought it on PS3, the PS4 version is now playable at no extra charge.

    In a way this is the most "beta-like" beta in a long time.

    Betas of recent times launching a few weeks before release and just looking like glorified demos. There should be an expectation that it's a test and it may not work, which is what happened here.

    Keep telling yourself you're a better person than other random internet users because you prefer one box of silicon and plastic to the other. Most people actually don't give a fuck because they're too busy having fun playing games and having a life outside of being a snarky internet troll.
