  • Sony video suggests PS4 friend notifications coming soon

  • LFace 11/12/2014

    Has there been talk of having video chats coming soon? Me and a mate typically Facetime each other on iPad yet we both have PS4 with the camera so it would be much better just using that to call each other. Not fussed about "snapping" it to screen so we can play a game at same time, thats not necessary. Reply +2
  • The race to defeat Destiny's (new) toughest challenge begins

  • LFace 09/12/2014

    FYI, Destiny is on the 12 Days Of Christmas sale today on PSN. 35 for PS4 and 30 for PS3.

    I bought myself a 35 voucher online for 29.44 so it wasnt that expensive to get, so I'm looking forward to playing it. Been on the fence since its release as I didnt want to pony up full price having tried the beta test and finding it average.

    Im sure EG will put an article up soon about todays sale.

  • Ubisoft details third major Assassin's Creed: Unity patch

  • LFace 17/11/2014

    @Darren I'm loving the game and have not had any game breaking bugs so far, and I've encountered the huge frame drop you refer to as well. On any of the buildings with stained glass it tanks massively when you are climbing around it, but if you release R2 it seems to speed up the frame rate. Almost like the engine is struggling to figure out the "attach" points for your character around the stain glass Reply +3
  • Assassin's Creed Unity walkthrough and game guide

  • LFace 14/11/2014

    There is a few hundred streaming it on Live On Playstation and having watched a few streams, I've yet to come across any of the show stopping bugs. Not saying they dont exist its clear they do, but perhaps falling through the floor is a rare bug ? Frame rate issues doesnt make a game unplayable, it just makes it jarring.

    Those of us that went through the early "modern" console age of PS1/Saturn will understand that framerate drops do happen but do not break the game. I have it on digital which I will be trying out tonight (had it on pre-order, one of the first games this gen I have pre-ordered) so I'll see for sure how it is then. Of course, it is inexcusable to have frame drops so severe in this day and age, and I hope they do sort it out. But for now I can live with it.

  • Trials Fusion: Welcome to the Abyss expansion release date

  • LFace 24/09/2014

    The game is dead to me now. I simply dont touch it due to lack of online multiplayer. Me and several friends bought it on the premise that multi was coming and we thought it would be a laugh. Its now several months later and no show and none of us touch it anymore. Its a shadow of its former xbox 360 self. Pathetic Reply +25
  • Microsoft to buy Mojang for $2 billion - report

  • LFace 10/09/2014

    IS this for Mojang AND the Minecraft IP (as stated in comments earlier, Mojang doesnt have the Minecraft IP, Notch does) or just Mojang?

    If it is just Mojang, then whats the point exactly.

    If the IP is also up for grabs, and does indeed sell, would that mean that updates to non-MS platforms could potentially stop coming? So the recently released PS4 version could well never be patched again?

    If upgrading to PS4, does it then stop your PS3/Vita copy from working or is it unaffected? I own this for 360 but swapped camp to PS4 so wouldn't mind having a Vita version for commuting but would also like to have it on PS4 as well. Reply +8

  • LFace 02/07/2014

    I know it's not a large cost, but charging for tracks is a bit pointless seeing as there's hundreds available for free that the community made online. Time would have been better spent getting online multiplayer working. I'm bored of the game already yet I was a die hard fan of the 360 versions Reply 0
  • Video: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel gameplay

  • LFace 18/06/2014

    @bertrandolf I wouldn't use AC4 as a benchmark. I bought it for PS3 thanks to it being cheaper than PS4 and they also did a flash sale. There was a cheap upgrade path to unlock it on PS4 which combined with the sale price of PS3 version made the next gen one cheap.

    Me and a few friends did this to get it on our new PS4's so it will technically look like it was purchased on previous gen for us.

    @nickthegun Its weird, I was brought up on Street Fighter (from the very first one through to the later Super 2 Turbo) but switched to Mortal Kombat when that came out. Now after all this time, I got Injustice which uses back to block and I'm awful at it and keep pressing a trigger to block like MK9. Reply 0

  • Minecraft PS4 and Xbox One won't have "infinite" PC worlds

  • LFace 09/05/2014

    Like people have mentioned, its got to be down to the cloud based backing up of saves. If it was just saving to the console HD then fair enough but at the end of every game I'm sure nobody would like to have it uploading a few gig save file to the cloud. Especially those on poor internet connections with heavily capped upload speed.

    And then playing the game at a friends so you transfer your save to his from the cloud and you're sat waiting for 4gb to download or something.

    I'm disappointed in there being no unlimited too but I can see the problems it would have. As mentioned, the world being triple or more the size of the 360 version would be good enough if it could fit everything in thats needed to progress in the game. Unlike my luck on a world I had on 360 a while back where the End portal clipped with the map edge. That pissed me off that did!

    I would gladly purchase south park if it came out for PS4/XBO. Quite ironic that the tv episode it featured in was about them getting the next gen console.

    I sacked off both PS3 and 360 to concentrate on PS4.

    @Jake316 Good point about the discounts. Had some bargains from there. Assassins Creed 4 being one of them. Discounted PS3 price with a 10 upgrade to PS4 version. Getting AC4 on PS4 cost me around 30 quid in total due to discounts, plus buying vouchers from the discounted online stores that sell 30 voucher for 27 as an example. Reply +1
  • LFace 10/03/2014

    I dont see why people are moaning about PS+ being rental only. Its 30 quid a year. Its cheap as chips. Get a voucher bought for Christmas from someone and its done with. Heck get several, they stack.

    I had both Gold and PS+ back when I owned 360 and PS3/Vita and I only had Gold for a 3 month sub to play online with a friend. Once we were bored playing that game I let it expire. During that period I didnt download a single xbox game as they were garbage. When PS+ releases the games I tag them all to my account regardless on whether I want them or not just because I can.

    I see PS+ like netflix. You play (watch) what you fancy and once finished with it you can move on. I dont begrudge the fact that a film I watched on netflix when subscribing wasnt available when I cancelled the sub. If I so desperately want to watch it again I can either sub again or go and buy it second hand from CEX or wherever for a pittance. Same applies with xbox. The games you get on Gold are going for less than 3 quid in places.

    Fact is that Sony offer far far far superior content than Microsoft. Whether you get to keep them or not is irrelevant in this day and age. Do you honestly see yourself in a few years time booting up the 360 to play a Game For Gold game such as Magic The Gathering when you dont have a Gold sub? I dont.

    Trials Evolution: Origin Of Pain was the one for me. The trials and tribulations of the BMX Bike growing up in a cardboard box in t'middle o road, working long shifts darn pit to scrape together the entry fee and prove itself as a worthy competitor in the Big Trials Competition that it had long dreamed about since childhood. Playing through all it's hopes and dreams was an absolute joy and the rich vast story of it is a modern day rags to riches tail worthy of a DLC Purchase. I give 3 thumbs up. Reply 0

  • PS4 sells over 2.1 million worldwide

  • LFace 03/12/2013

    @SpaceMidget75 I fully agree. I was always in the Xbox 360 camp for many years as I saw it as the better console. I wasnt fussed by online gaming so never bought Gold.

    However, when a mate told me all about how good the Vita was and that Sony was giving away free games of good value on PS Plus, I got a Vita and a 15 month sub. Fast forward a couple of months (as well as purchasing the free games for PS3 each month via the web costing 0) and I got a PS3 and instantly got 10 good quality games ready to play due to Plus.

    The Xbox only got played for GTA5 as that was on pre-order. And now I'm almost done with that game, the Xbox never gets turned on and this weekend I got a PS4.

    The free Games for Gold that MS give away are absolute garbage and in the 3 months I had a gold sub to play Minecraft with a friend online, I never even bothered downloading one. They just werent worth the hassle.

    I've gone from being a massive MS fan with Xbox 360 (and original Xbox) that never cared for Sony, to moving over to camp Sony and loving every minute of it. Sorry Microsoft, you've lost a customer with the attitude that gamers come second on your games console.

  • HTC One review

  • LFace 30/03/2013

    @mattigan quite the opposite really.

    Samsung galaxy s2 which I have has been dropped from head height onto the pavement which then bounced into a very gravel laden road and it merely got a little scratch on the bottom of the screen. No cover/case. Do that with any phone featuring actual glass and you would have one shattered screen.

    People hate the "cheap" style of the galaxy phones but they fare up better in drop tests than any metal+glass combo phones. I prefer less repair costs than how a phone feels for first day of usage - you get used to it and it doesn't bother you.

    Shame the code is locked. Would have liked to view it to have a tinker around.

    When the system was down at work a while back, I coded Tetris and Columns within Excel for something to do. Its fun having a mess within VBA and Excel is quite a good base as you can use the Cells as a cheap way of drawing pixels so a graphics engine isnt fully required.

  • Minecraft XBLA outsold Minecraft PC in 2012

  • LFace 11/01/2013

    I see in almost every Minecraft article's comments a lot of out of date statements and opinions on Minecraft as a "game" saying it has no objective, or completely pointless and nothing but lego. A long time ago I would agree, but now that the survival mode is fleshed out a lot, there certainly IS an objective now.

    There is an end boss and a completion screen. You have to do certain tasks and craft certain things to allow you to get to the end boss. Just like every other game out there pretty much.

    If people are going to blatantly give an uneducated out of date opinion on a game they do not like then at least get your facts right. The game is being added to constantly and although the xbox version is behind the PC version, it will get there eventually.

    I was miffed with this 4th gen release as I got the 3rd gen iPad as my first tablet to use when I was incapacitated from an operation and wanted something to use whilst sat on my arse all day for 10 weeks.

    I got it in march and the fact apple made it obsolete less than a year after release really pissed me off no end. A fanboy I ain't (have an android phone and a pc) and this has seriously made me want nothing more to do with apple.

    Wow free!

    Hey guys did you hear? There is a shit ton of free content to view on Netflix including a load of documentaries all free !!!*

    * - please note a subscription is needed.

    Sick of this "free" bullshit when a subscription is needed. I have an xbox 360 but I dont have a Gold account as I dont give a rats ass about paying to play online. My PC does that shit for free and has done for years way back in the Quake days when I played death match with a few online mates I knew from IRC and stuff.

    Bollocks to paying MS extra for the privelage of playing the advertised features of a game I buy full price for.

    Fighting games need the kind of single player depth that games like Mortal Kombat recently had. I put hours into that to unlock everything and complete the challenge tower. Then I picked up Super SF4 and noticed a complete lack of single player other than the usual arcade mode (yawn). If thats how this SC game is (I didnt even know this was out, shows how out of touch I am) then it is no wonder that it is in decline.

    As has been pointed out, not everyone wants to just play a fighting game with friends and/or family. There are times when you are on your own and fire up the console for a quick go on something, so giving extra for single player must surely be a must.

    A "Blatant Angry Birds rip off" you say? But foresooth! Angry Birds itself was a rip off of a flash title I saw before Angry Birds was ever heard of, I believe castle crushers or something like that.

    To use that phrase on a supposedly professional gaming website just highlights how absurdly unknowledged the reviewer is.

    Havent seen if they plan to include several with the console anywhere but then I havent read every single article yet (too damn many!)

    @kangarootoo Yeah I knew different objects of different weight fall same, but when its the same object I thought due to the weight being frontal biased that it would tip over. I remember in Demolition Derby on Mythbusters the dropped cars would tip forwards due to the engine. I just checked the ep now and they do but like you say it took quite a bit of time before it did so, therefore I retract my statement slightly as they were small jumps the cars did.. ahem. Reply +1
