  • Why Overwatch on console is in desperate need of a report button

    Anti sociable childish behaviour in a game about killing other players while involuntarily spouting the old predictable (and not so slightly racist) mandatory psycothic oneliners and then salute their demise with the built in inane taunts? Well I'd never expect.. :rolleyes:

    About the repport system, I think the redirect back is depending on context for complaint too, not just game.

  • On games as philosophy experiments, from Fallout to Soma

    The story of Soma was bloomin brilliant, I mean, they have to have stolen those ideas from a great piece of literature right? A game didn't have that level of thought provoking ideas did it??
    The gist of it was in "StarTrek TNG" already, but maybe that was inspirerande too though. Probably was.

    Akkshully, it's "paku". That's why the game's called "pakuman".
    Well, this is probably from a western version then, the one with dub by Shakira.

    In the security of the classroom, it's easy to tell your teacher you'd pull the lever to switch the train tracks.
    Should also try "Prey" then. :lol:

    I think the all too common opting for the active "kill one" path, versus the passive "let 100 die" in itself say something about videogames too though. It is, as some would claim, a problematic power fantasy that despite best efforts yet fails to portray it's pawns as real enough for moral questions really. Or the more important, to question "moral questions" and "common sense" imprint as such.

    Therefore I think "The Talos principle" is one of few games that really does the "what is consciousness" well.

  • Minecraft's cross-network update now playable in beta

  • ecco 03/08/2017

    On the PS4 my kids can play any game whatever the age rating even though they are 9 and 11. And that's with their correct ages on those accounts.
    You need to set the highest level games they can play for yourself first. Its not really hardlocked to their age, but more of a parental control thing. This way your 9 can play 15 rated games, but the 11 only 10 ones, if that is what you think each of them be mature enough for. This is (probably) also why "kids" cant play online at all. If you let them play adult games; your responsibility. If Sony would let them play online, knowing they are; Sonys responsibility. And they dont want that responsibility. Just like Nintendo doing everything to limit what they would have been judged responsible for. Be it by law, or media consensus.

    How did this game not sell well enough? I bought 7 copies of it alone (1 x PC, 1 x PS3, 1 x Xbox 360, 2 x PS4 and 2 x X1
    And I got 2. (PS4BD, LPC) But that still just makes a total of 9 sold. I doubt any game ever, including ET, sold less than Alien Isolation.

    @ecco PS4 store is also laggy most of the times on a standard PS4. Better then how it was on the PS3 though.
    My point was not really to compare PS3 to PS4. Rather since the various PS3 stores varied greatly in efficiency, I speculated this then could be (probably is) the case for PS4 too.

    If you have or are willing to set up accounts for some or all of EU,JP,HK,US or others you could compare them and see.

    Maybe DF will do one of their comparative articles on this.

    At last I'm going to be able to play CDs - fingers crossed.

    Not sure if serious enough or.. :confused:

    But there is most likely real technical reasons it does not, like hard fact ones.

    Early DVD players actually had dual readers to play CDs. So now with BDs that have the data layer even closer to the surface (sort of diametrically opposite the CDs actually, DVDs was halfway) it would either need that (cost more) or be a dual focus lens (more error prone).

    I honestly don't know what you're talking about. Facebook is only suggested once and in one place, when you're given the ability to link it with you PSN account to share your activities on FB's timeline. If you choose so, you will only hear of it if you press the share button (and I think it does automatically, no logos), and you choose not to, you'll never hear of it again.

    Ok, first of all.

    Erm... there isn't a Facebook app, and you can delete any app apart from the browser.
    I never actually said it was one:

    This will be the update that lets me delete Facebook and pointless apps I never use!
    However, the logo was in several places before. Maybe it's cut down now.

    But that's not the end of it either way, still crops up in games, and sometimes it's not even just once when starting it.

    There should be a system wide opt out, or preferably in, for all these auxiliary services. And even that would be sort of shit, like on some computer software, "you wanna connect with: *arm long list of things competing to be the next innovative startup media/data storage service or social invasion adds tracking thing that does not fail miserably right after being accursed, acquired by Megacorps*

    As for deleting apps, just press Option over one and select delete. Been like this since version 1.0 :)
    Ok, I'll try that, again.. If "computer says no" to anything I'm coming back to haunt you. ;)

    Edit: Why the fuck am I getting negged? I'm stating a fact, Jesus...
    I was also stating one of those in my second post. Someone did not agree with that fact.

    Just relax and drink some cowfeffe.

    And then accept the inevitable fact that by 2020, opinions will always trump facts. :cool:

    @Foxtrot-Oscar @ecco

    It's not entirely impossible... we can now delete games in the list we've played that we didn't earn Trophies on. and don't want to be reminded.
    Except for those fun "Congrats! You started the game! We now have you hostage of shame to actually finish something and not appear as a quiter like you do for everything else in life!"-ones. :rolleyes:

    The deletable requirement would probably do well by upping it to at least 1 or 2 trophies.

    My wish list of one is that we finally get more than one customisable controller set up! I don't even have many games, but having only one set up seems unbelievable odd!?
    No, not really, the intent with it is accessibility (being in those settings and all) so adapting for some lost functionality or motor skill is probably the primary concern covering it all anyways.

    Would it have been so difficult to have several or even an unlimited number!?!
    But sure, it would be good being able to customising games lacking in settings for this. It could even be made as an automatic switch of made profiles for each game started that has one made.

    I also don't see why the range of inputs are limited, since that is even more important for accessibility. Like fe switching the sticks LR or even have either one set as the + pad or the touchpad. (for when it lacks very specific function of course, but this often is the case)

    Sony don't really understand player choice or customisation unfortunately.
    Sure they do!

    Ok, did.. :p

    Seriously though, while it ca always be more and better, apart from the mentioned "at least some controller adaptability" the custom backgrounds, folder sorting and such are also one of those another things after all.

    Aww, they so cute.

    A shaman once rubbed one against me.

    Apparently this process cures all kinds of ailment.

    @fabio78 Ok, maybe not an app but there is that ugly FB logo all over the places.

  • ecco 20/07/2017

    @Mar27w Well, yes. But the problem is the store is overcumbered plain and simple. Just restructure it with smaller images and cut all the autoloading videos should sort things out without actually recoding anything probably.

    This is exactly the same situation that was on the PS3. EU store was slow and laggy, the Asian fairly quick and smooth. Compararivly.

    Not sure if this is repeated on PS4, have not checked the JP or HK stores for quite some time now.

    @hana_fubuki Going by the price of the damned controllers, is it really that much of a barrier for most who can buy the console (and with it a set of them) anyways?

    The reason also, doubt it was an active choice for the sake of fairer play, but a technical one. Split screen cost a bit, especislly if the CPU is allready taxed for what a single player is up to.

    @robo-viking I really doubt he's a fan boy. People tend to grow out of that mindless behaviour around the same time they learn to drive.
    Most people nowdays do not learn to drive though. :rolleyes:

    I can see no reason for them to change to an entirely different processor technology and lose compatibility with older titles.
    The reason would be that the generational leap of the roadmapped APUs simply does not seem to be able to reach anything near what would be expected to be in a console generational leap, even by 2020.

    I'm hopeful that the PS5 will be BC. If it's not then it's bullshit as they don't have the Cell as a reason.
    PS4 just has the SPEs as compute units of the GPU instead. If either the GPU architecture itself or whatever kind of interconnect to CPU (there is talk of dedicated chips this turn) change drastically it would be just as much of a problem for BC work as the Cell ever was.

    Richard Leadbetter :
    Secondly, how about adding cloud access to any PS4 title you own digitally?
    Since one essentially pay for server work and outgoing bandwidth, I'm guessing they would not be so keen to have even more load from people not actually paying for that service when simply downloading the full thing be much more more cost efficient. Especially for the older the titles there are.

    Anyone have any idea how new trophies work with getting the original platinum for "all trophies". Will these be separate to the original set like DLC trophies?
    The trophies list (for "full" games) are always made up from a certain value divided into the sub values of the various trophies levels, (this is why some games can have pile of bronze ones and others just a few gold or silver) so its simply not doable to add more trophies needed for a platinum.

    Well, no, NG+ lets you start a new game but keep all of your existing gear and levels. You could already continue your existing game after beating the final boss.
