  • Sony will let Plus members vote on the PS4 Instant Game Collection

  • Mr-Writer 01/08/2015

    I was wondering how long it would take Skippy to start with his "Sony are evil they are the worst thing about gaming" speeches.

    He must be really regret buying an X1 if he has to go to such lengths to make himself feel better.

    Infamous First Light

    And Ground Zeros.

    Oh and on PS3 it took over 2 years for games less then 2 years old to appear. I wouldn't hold my breath for big games until maybe this time next year.

    Edit: Sorry not made that very clear, if you look back at the first 2 years of plus it didn't have many retail games, and those that it did were 3/4 years old.

    It wasn't until July 2012 that the IGC started getting AAA games less than 2 years old.

    Also Plus is now supporting 3 platforms, until one or even 2 are dropped I can't see the selection improving in the way you are expecting.

    At least not yet

    Well you thought wrong. I don't always call him out on his BS as plenty of others do, but on this occasion I had to.

    Haven't you got any Playstation articles to go on about how rubbish Sony are and how evil they are and how you and all the other X1 owners are victims?

  • Mr-Writer 30/07/2015

    @XbDf

    Can you forgive Sony for telling people to get a second job to afford the $600/500 ps3 when it was first revealed.
    They never said this.. They said the objectives behind the design of the PS3 was to be so good that people would work hard to earn the money to buy one.

    Honestly look it up and not one actual quote will say "we don't care how much it is get a second job".

    in fact the EXACT quote is

    Ken Kutaragi had this to say about Sony's goal for the PS3: "for consumers to think to themselves 'I will work more hours to buy one'. We want people to feel that they want it, irrespective of anything else."
    So may I suggest you stop spreading incorrect information.

    Oh and the launch price was 425 not 500...

  • Now it's got Steam Workshop support, is Knights of the Old Republic 2 worth returning to?

  • Mr-Writer 29/07/2015

    I actually found these games easier to play on Xbox then I do on PC, a KOTOR 3 and the other 2 ported to X1 and PS4 would be awesome.

    Even a console port of TOR would be cool with me. Though I am probably alone in wanting that.

    60fps is clearly better, and for some people it's more important, and I think that there is nothing wrong with that.

    But some people (like me) there is nothing wrong with 30fps and we can enjoy the game regardless.

    Again they say this, but no one has asked the question who did they actually talk to? They don't actually tell who said no other than Sega, and don't forget at the same time they where already working with Nintendo.

    I agree, but his point was that if it's timed exclusive game or dlc that bad.

    But let's be honest Nintendo didn't publish Bayonetta 2 for its fans, it did it to help the WiiU, they hoped that getting the sequal to a game with a cult following might help sales.

    As the first game had never been on a Nintendo platform before, meaning if the fans had wanted to play the game they either had to buy a WiiU or miss out.!I don't see how that is any better or even different to timed DLC or games.

    @grassyknoll

    I have asked this before and no one ever found me proof, but did PG not ask Sony or MS? You know the platform holders which the original was on.

    I have seen the PR guff about how they went to other publishers, but it doesn't say who.

    So there is no proof that Sony or MS turned it down, so you can't say 100% it would not off been made as we don't know 100% if they would of or would not.

    But that's not the point I was making, he was saying timed exclusive and dlc is bad as it punishes those who own one console.

    But isnt moneyhatting a game which sold on two rivals platforms also punishing those who bought the original but didn't want a WiiU? Which he deemed as fine.

    @Miomjon

    As of late, this "competition" seems to be who will get the next timed exclusive or exclusive content, which I don't see what good it does to the industry,
    Because it gives people choice, which is not a bad thing.

    other than punishing owners of different platforms.
    That has always been the case, that would be like me complaining that PC versions of games are better than console versions and I am punished because I don't game on PC, stupid argument.


    The only good thing that console manufacturer do for the industry in general is when they fund a new game to be made, which is becoming rarer these days,
    You are chatting utter BS here, this gen already there has been Sunset Overdrive, The Order, Knack, Driveclub, Bloodborne, Ori and the Blind Forest, ect ect so the idea that new games don't get made is ridicules. This also destroys your claim that it's all about timed exclusives.

    as Bayonetta 2 is the only example I can think of.
    A game that was multiplatform then was switched to becomes an exclusive..May I bring you back to..

    other than punishing owners of different platforms.
    Poor example again.

    Other exclusives are made by well-established studios like Naughty Dog that wouldn't have any problems making games for other platforms should Sony or Microsoft go under.
    ND have become so established because of working on exclusives, and since we have neither way of proving or disproving that they would have no problems we shall have to leave it there.

    "will continue to become rarer."

    Unless its a PC exclusive? You do know that consoles need exclusives to help breed competition, which also leads to more choice.

    Without either of those things the games industry wouldn't last very long.

    Exclusives are needed, to hope they become rarer is a very silly thing to say imo.

    "You do know if TR never existed neither would uncharted ?"

    A) That it not an actual fact

    B) India Jones probably inspired both so to say UC wouldn't exists without TR is laughable.

    C) The TR reboot was heavily influenced by UC and shared more in common with that then it did the other TR games imo.

    I think he means the reboot, which lets be honest is heavily influenced by Uncharted gameplay.

    Which is different from the other TR games, sure the idea is influenced by TR but to say Uncharted copied TR is a bit of a stretch.

  • PS4's official universal remote is heading to Europe

  • Mr-Writer 23/07/2015

    Looking at this and the PS3 version, there seems to be quite a few differences between the two.

    Not that I'm sure that means the PS3 shouldn't be able to work, but that could be a reason.

    It's also worth noting those having a go at Sony for this that the 360 media remote doesn't work with the X1 either so both are just as bad as each other.

    Yeah because a game never drops below 39.99 on either....

    And how do you know it's not from sales?

    There are 48,000,000 live users, if only 1/4 of them spend 5 that's 60,000,000. Let's say they take a 2% cut of what is sold that's over 1,000,000.

    Again the fact there are so many sales shows sales at full price can't be that great otherwise why would you need a sale?

    Where have I said his opinion is wrong? I disagree with his opinion not because I believe it's wrong, but because I believe it's based on the fact that UC is not on X1 and ROTTR is.

    This is backed up by the fact he offered no reasoning to his opinion.

    Also I used chest chair as one example of added detail which helps to add to realism.

    Which looks more like a real person

    Or the scout from TF2

    I'm not looking to invalidate his argument though, if he had a genuine opinion not based on the simple fact the game looks better as its not on PS4.

    And the way he worded it he tried to pass his statement as a fact, then as soon as he got pulled on it he pulled out the opinion card.

    But of course he is an X1 fanboy and they are not to be questioned or challenged.

    I look forward to you defending all the PS4 fanboys opinion that UC4 is better than ROTTR when ROTTR review is released.

    But let's be honest.. That won't happen.

    Guess what, 44% is close to 50%... what a surprise..
    Actually its closer to 40% as you round it off to the nearest 10.

    Also showing 44% more pixels does not make something 50% more powerful.

    You are right, they are not fundamental, but they help you immersion, and as I said to Frazzl a great game that is not only fun to play, but has so many big and little details that you can get lost in is not a bad thing.

    Yes neither game will push gameplay, but then again both are solid gameplay wise and will no doubt feature tweaks that may not be ground breaking, but could add to the immersion.

    @frazzl

    The thing is, is that the objective? Both TR and UC sport some very stylized graphics. I think it wouldn't be unreasonable to argue that reality is not something either game is aiming for. In which case we come back to aesthetics.
    Of course it is! Why else would they not only go for human looking characters but also adding details to a level that makes them look MORE human, like chest hair on Nate, or the hair animations of Lara.

    Both are going for the same aesthetics.

    The vagueness when it comes to using words like "tech". Do you know enough about the tech involved to make a valid comment?
    No but neither does XBDF, so if you question my validity then you must also question his, at least I have tried to explain my stand point, even with my limited knowledge.

    And even then what metric are you using to define superiority
    The same as everyone else the detail, ND are clearly going for a game that not only looks great but has details that not many other games last gen had.

    What has game "tech" have to do with "big bang for your buck"? You could have the most "technically accomplished" title, that can sport shitty gameplay and not be any fun to play. Would that constitute bang for your buck?
    But we both know Uncharted doesn't have shitty gameplay, and it seems they have improved in some ways such as melee combat looks improved.

    Same with TR, the first game (though I havent played it despite owning it) from what I have read that too has great gameplay.

    Let me give you an example, that market scene, when he first walks in, it looks amazing, the busy people, the details of building etc, THAT is the bang for your buck I am talking about, that sort of stuff pulls you in, a game can play well and be fun, but if it looks like a dogs backside or looks bland then you are going to loose something.

    Its hard to describe for me, I guess immersion, its not a deal breaker, but when a game is fun to play and immersive so much so you can get lost in it, thats not a bad thing is it?


    Both statements are opinions. I could argue against both. People do that all the time "You don't know what's good for you"..etc. But by qualifying the second statement and making it more specific to you, you make your opinion that much harder to dismiss.
    No, the first one is someone trying to pass off their opinion as a fact, which it is not.

    The second one is a much harder to argue unless you know the person, me and you for example don't know each other well enough to form a valid recommendation, and even if we did I am willing to bet that we would most likely agree that our choices are the best for us.

    Same here. In fact apart from when you asked me to directly compare the two titles, my arguments have been neither for or against either game.
    Yes but I have my suspicions as to why you have taken that stance :p

    Someone earlier said they thought Arkham Knight looks better than UC4. I disagree. I don't think Arkham Knight looks particularly fantastic at all
    Whilst I agree that Arkham Knight doesn't look as good as UC, I would say it looks better than Arkham City. Its not just the fact it has a batmobile (finally), but the city is bigger and looks better.

    Thats an example of better tech and hardware improving a game, RS said they would of had to of made compromises to make this game run on last gen hardware.

    Anyway I am going to leave it here as we are just going to go round in circles, and I really can't be doing with another debate with you.

  • Mr-Writer 17/07/2015

    @frazzl

    No I'm not saying that, but tech plays a huge part in making a game look real (if that is what the objective is.

    For example, Journey looks beautiful, yet does not push tech as its aesthetics don't require it to.

    However for games like UC and TR which want to give you Big Bang for your buck, then tech does play a huge part. And ROTTR still has one foot in last gen.

    Again I'm not saying ROTTR is bad you are right it looks good, but again it's not doing the same things as UC (busy market place, dense jungle, City ect) so it's unfair to not only make a comparison. But also again to dismiss the work ND are doing by saying it doesn't look as good.

    Which again claiming something is better is not a preference. It's like if I said the PS4 is better you can argue differently.

    If I said the PS4 is better for my needs and wants, then you can't argue with me as that if my preference.

    So I think it's you who are getting opinion and preference mixed up. And considering even none PS4 owners like Suarez are also questioning the claim it's clearly not a fanboy vs fanboy argument.

    Saying a game has better graphics is not a preference.

    Preferring something and saying something has better graphics are not the same thing I'm afraid.

    I don't need to convince you of anything, this very article backs up my view that UC4 is pushing the PS4. If we get an article similar to this for the X1 version of ROTTR I shall concede the point.

    Frazzl hand on heart, do you think ROTR looks better than UC4.

    Not that ROTTR looks bad, but I think it's a little unfair and a disservice to the work ND have done to say it is.

    Preferring ROTTR yeah sure, but is ROTTR pushing the tech of the X1 the same as ND are with the PS4? Consider ROTTR is also going to be on 360 I doubt it.

    Again hand on heart, weather you prefer ROTTR or not, looking at trailers ect, and as others have said baring in mind the settings, and how one is more isolated compared to say the other which starts out in a market place.

    Does ROTTR look better graphically than UC4? And is more "next gen"?

    Bare in mind he didn't say he preferred ROTTR he said ROTTR has better graphics and is more next gen.

    Of course, now if someone has a preference of one game over another that's fine, even having the opinion is fine.

    But to have the opinion, then claim victim when people disagree with that opinion is a bit silly.

    He claims he should be allowed his opinion.

    But then to cry that people don't like/agree with his opinion is a bit pointless.

    As its there opinion and whilst he is entitled to voice it in public that means he should also means he has given up any right for his opinion not to agreeded with.

    But also opinions can be wrong, as the word opinion can be used incorrectly.

    For example it's my opinion that Sunderland football club will win the champions league. Now this is wrong, as Sunderland are not even in the CL so can't win it.

    Some people think that you can write what ever you want and no one can say you are wrong if you add - In my opinion at the end.

    That's all I'm saying ;)

  • How Sony Santa Monica mastered PlayStation 3

  • Mr-Writer 19/07/2015

    The thing about the PS3 exclusives is that ND and SSM are very very talented and managed to get so much out of the PS3.

    Other than Bungie MS don't have a studio on par with them two, I personally would put them
    above Bungie in terms of graphics. But the Halo series gameplay is top notch so it's 6 of one half a dozen of the other.

    But I wouldn't put Lionhead or Rare in the same league as ND and SSM.

    So in that sense Sony had an advantage when it came to impressive graphics.

    I do wonder how much better (or not) the PS3 could of been had the RAM not been split.
