    My friend pestered me for ages to play this.

    Bought the PS4 version.

    After playing it I text him and told him he was right that it was a great game.

    It's quite funny, I doubt there will be many people complaining about it being mostly QTE.

    Yet other games get slated for it.

  • Don't call it DRM: what's Denuvo Anti-Tamper?

  • Mr-Writer 20/12/2014

    @houldendub

    Can you go into a cinema and ask to watch just the first 10 minutes of the movie?

    Or do you just pirate that as well?

    And you are ignorant if you think you are "hurting no one" you are hurting other gamers.

    Do you think when publishers get the reports of how many times their new game has been pirated that yours isnt counted?

    It most likely is, and that contributes to a bigger number, the bigger the number the more they want to protect their product.

    The more they want to protect their product the more those of us who pay for everything have to put up with more anti piracy BS, from product codes to online activation all that BS YOU and everyone else who pirates regardless of reason have brought onto those who are honest.

    @roflcaust

    Wtf? There are always sales? Even consoles are starting to have seasonal, monthly and weekly sales.

    With PS4 I can buy any game that is 60 on the UK store for 38 from the US store.

    PC also has discount codes, humble bundle, GOG... Loads of options.

    Gaming is only expensive if you must have every game you want day one.

    Learn to have patience or shop around and you don't have to spend a fortune.

  • Media-streaming app Plex now available on PS4 and PS3 in Europe

  • Mr-Writer 17/12/2014

    @Sledge_Hammer

    People want the PS4 to have media ability, but we want it to be a games console that has media capability.

    Not a media box that plays games.

    There lies the difference.

    I had Music Unlinited when it was 10 for 3 months and it was nice to have custom soundtracks for a little while.

    If this does it too... I might be tempted to go the sub route.

    You seem to be the person to go to for this.

    So if I want to stream stuff I own from my laptop to my PS4 it's free? But my laptop has to be on.

    But I can pay for a service which allows me to stream the stuff I own without the laptop being on?

    Have I got that right?

    Edit: ahh the free service is being added later.

  • Last-gen revisited: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

  • Mr-Writer 17/12/2014

    "I don't need a PS4 my PS3 has most of the games the PS4 does".

    The PS3 has some amazing games, and served me well. But I wasn't able to go back after getting a PS4.

    These shoddy ports (the PS3 struggles with some games but shouldn't be this bad) help reinforce my decision to part ways with my PS3.

    I think people who are still in last gen should start thinking about jumping to current gen (console choice should be the platform you want) as its only going to get worse from here.

    @MattEvansC3

    Which point of view? The one that the very definition of introduce is exactly what I said? LoL.

    At the end of the day I fully acknowledge that as a service Live was the trail blazer.

    But the whole service is built around online multiplayer, and that was around before MS.

    They have refined it, but they also put it behind a paywall.

    That was my point ;)

    "But Microsoft really introduced multiplayer gaming to consoles, so how exactly did they ruin something which fundamentally didn't exist before?"

    He didn't say anything about framework, which you are right, as an overall service yeah they certainly set the bar high and has been great for gaming.

    However online play was not brought to consoles by MS. As it exsisted before even the original Xbox.

    The DC and PS2 both had online play before Xbox.

    And both were free.

    You may have missed the "behind the paywall" part of my post?

    Although I also didn't make it clear that I was just pointing out that whilst Skippy thinks that Plus and Now are evil inventions of Sony.

    MS didn't exactly do a good deed by making multiplayer paywalls attractive to other corporations.

    Oh and of course Grassy has already pointed out the hypocrisy.

    Same way that MS ruined consoles by putting multiplayer behind a paywall.

    Thankfully Sony resisted to follow MS fully by allowing none gaming services and free to play games to be accessed without Plus.

    Forcing MS to change Live.

  • Video: Why you might not want to pre-order The Order

  • Mr-Writer 14/12/2014

    @mega-gazz

    I see your point, but have you never enjoyed a game that EG have deemed rubbish? Or any game that any site deemed rubbish?

    If not then my next point is void, but if you have..

    Opinions are varied, what you find a good games others might not.

    Bugs are not opinions. If a games is buggy or has things not working that is a fact. If a game needs patching to work it was broken.

    People paid good money for a product they wanted to enjoy and it didn't even work.

    A true journalist wouldn't give a perfect score for a broken product.

    Look at the LBP review massively positive, marked down for bugs (which I believe have been patched out on day 1).

    That was the right thing to do. Even tho there was a day 1 patch.

    Halo has been out over a month now? And the developer still admits it's not fully working.

    Yet still got a high score.

    See the difference?

    @crazy-Tetsuo

    How do you know it's Sony "forcing them" out of their comfort zone and not the studio wanting to try something new?

    Evolution made Driveclub which is a racing game... They are also known for Motorstorm, a racing game, hardly a huge departure.

    MM wanted to make something different and made Tearaway.

    ND pretty much get to make what they want also.

    Ready at Dawn have only done handheld games, but they created The Order IP, which Sony bought and are now paying them to make, and since RAD are independent they didn't have to accept either but did.

    So what other cases do you have to back up your claim?

    @marcsmashing

    I can't speak for everyone, but sometimes a game appeals to you, or you want it so bad that you pre-order.

    Sometimes it makes sense, like Uncharted I will pre-order this, as I have loved all naughty dog games and know it will be quality.

    The Order, it was more of a gamble, but I did it as there was just something about it that sparked my interest.

    Some games grab my attention then fizzle out (Watch Dogs, Destiny, and DAI all got me excited at first yet as they got closer I got less and less excited to the point where I own none of them)

    I guess its just down to being able to form our own opinion.

    @lukazor

    There were just as many PS4 deals on black friday as there was for the X1.
    Not on one of the biggest online retailers their wasn't.

    You only have to look on this very site.

    5 deals leading up to and including Black Friday, not one PS4 bundle.


    For example Tesco had PS4's with Driveclub for 289 and with Driveclub and The Last of Us for 299. Sure the X1 price had been dropped to 329 with no games previously but the PS4 is also now 329 with no games.

    @sanctusmortis

    Seriously, Tesco were selling the AC bundle for 290. That's 60 off
    http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/xbox-one-without-kinect-289-blackfriday-tesco-2063550
    Hmmmmmmm

    Edit: Thanks Sanctusmortis for providing proof.


    In the UK the prices between the 2 consoles are pretty much the same.

    If the X1 outsold the PS4 in the UK then it didn't do it because it was cheaper
    The X1 was cheaper before and during Black Friday. The evidence is above.

    I haven't claimed it does. Exclusives are just down to personal taste.

    @Negotiator

    In fact lets break it down.

    In all fairness Xbox had the better exclusives and of course the price cuts made the difference
    Two parts to this.

    One is fact, the other is opinion.

    Can you guess which one.

    What? the holidays drive sales more than any other time of the year
    True

    When you have two competing consoles with the same multi-platform games the reason you choose one over the other is price and exclusive games, unless you're a fanboy
    This is also true, but when is it any different? It doesn't matter what time of the year it is, this is always the criteria when picking a games console.

    This holiday the PS4 had piss poor exclusives
    Opinion...

    that one of the reasons for outselling the PS4 last month was down to having the better/popular exclusives.
    Here is were your logic falls down.

    The PS4 has outsold the X1 every month for nearly a year.

    That means the PS4 has the better price and better games.

    So, if the PS4 has had the better games for 11 months, how does having 1 month of better sales = better games?

    Or even when we see world wide numbers (not just UK and USA) and if the PS4 outsold the X1 does that mean it had the better games still?


    HERE IS WHAT HAS ACTUALLY HAPPENED

    The X1 and PS4 both have a fair share of great games, which one has the best is down to opinion and taste.

    This month, in two countries may I add, the X1 was at a lower price, the games are not hugely different from October, or September or August.

    But if the X1 hadn't of had such huge cuts, more than the PS4 had, you wouldn't of seen these sales numbers.

    Price is the number one factor, exclusive games, whilst a factor isn't as big as you are making out.

    Yes I can read.

    When the X1 sells its because it has the better games.

    When the PS4 sells games are only part of it.
