  • Digital Foundry: Hands-on with PlayStation Now

  • mistachicken 05/05/2015

    I have also been participating in the uk beta. At first i thought it was very average and i would never pay for it. But then Raiden 4 and a couple of other shooters turned up and they seem to work very well. Hardly any lag and fabulous fun.
    Internet info: I still have adsl and i average 10-13 mb download and 1 mb upload. The service ran flawlessly , even with my son streaming in the other room at the same time.
    If it's cheap enough , i can honestly say it is a service with investing in. It just all depends on the games i suppose.

    are you aware we had both these games on ps+ over a year ago young fellow?
    they are both good services , it just depends on what games your looking for on a month to month basis.

  • Sony still committed to DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition launch "as quickly as possible"

  • mistachicken 24/02/2015

    I'll never understand why we didn't get an online version on PS plus if its just the servers that's the issues ( even as a demo ), I borrowed it off my mate and only played it online... Conspiracy I tell thee. . ? . . Reply 0

  • The Crew is broken - but packed with potential

  • mistachicken 03/12/2014

    I really enjoyed the beta but am suprised that the connectivity issue has made it into the full game..Is'nt that what Betas are all about?..maybe i did'nt shout loud enough.
    graphically its not the best game out there but there is a lot going on , but for just the dumb fun of a video game , its fabulous.
    Try it... you might like it :-)

    Sorry gang , i just did'nt get this one.

    Far cry Blood Dragon.
    Story driven you say?...If you lived in that 80's to 90's cheap action\horror era , you will know how fabulous this game is in its send up of all those medusa and vestron home video movies that i watched and loved for all the wrong reasons.
    It is just plain genius. and i do not mean that lightly , i am sure they aimed it just at me as i got every single joke and was beaming from ear to ear all the way through it.

    remember....Guns...they kill people.

    Holy monkees!!!

    I went on this morning and being a ps+ user it has already downloaded and installed...

    I have played it for about an hour this morning with no probs but have an upgraded 500gb hard drive so am wondering if its gonna die!!!

    Please don't die ps3 , i love you so much...
    ANd if it does then does anyone think Sony will cough up? , i do hope so , i can't afford 150 at the moment for a new one.
    Terrible to actually have something like this happen in this day and age..
    I'm a quality controller , can i have a job please.

    wow...have you filled it with ps+ games?? hmm?
    i bet you have , get rid of the chuff! , i know its hard to let go but that dead or alive 5 or mortal kombat has to go!!.
    its all about choice i suppose but if me or my son are not playing it , it goes! including 17gb worth of hitman after i completed it (great game btw).
    how many games do you have on there?

    And i do not understand why anyone can judge at this stage which console will be better once they are both settled into our homes.
    I am a self confessed playstation zealot but i still like to keep an open mind and of course gaming is gaming and i think we should stick together and all support the industry no matter which side your on , after all its us gamers against the world :-)

  • mistachicken 22/05/2013

    I suppose it depends on how big the games are.
    lets presume each game will be approx 10-20gb in size? thats enough for plenty of games but when you add music\photo's and video you might be right.
    I have a ps3 with a 500gb drive and have 57 games installed , approx 4000 pictures , 40 albums and over 10 hours of hd home movies and still have 150gb free so its certainly ok for this generation but as for the next...only time will tell.

  • mistachicken 23/03/2013

    yes , i agree.
    I think Ubisoft got it right with FAR CRY 3 when they tried to incoprate everything... FPS tick, stealth tick, rpg tick, open world tick, lovely pretty enviroment tick,driving tick , etc etc.
    I loved that they attempted to make it a lovely huge fun game.
    I doubt another game in this generation will beat it , but i presume gta 5 will give it a go.

  • mistachicken 23/03/2013

    hmm , i see your point , but games trends do change.
    6 years ago while everybody was playing fps's on the pc , i was playing endless platform games and rpg's on my console , while these days lots of people are playing fps's on consoles while the major mojority of pc gamers (that i know) are bored of them and play mmo's or strategy's or even (cough!) app games.

    Good soapbox.
    For me its just how captivating a game is not the actual content.
    The games market is so diverse there is always something for everybody.
    If its a good game then......its a good game , i especially like moral choices in games like bioshock and dishonoured.
    SSX would have been better with an ak47 or two though.....( i jest of course , games producers , do NOT take note!) :-)

    Why do people get hung up on FF VII , yes it was fantastic , but after downloading it this year i could not finish it again, it was just too twee. I think FF X is a good choice with all the celestial weapons and all , its also got a lovely soundtrack and we all loved a bit of blitzball? right?.....i said...right? (am i on my own on this one?)

  • It's time to ignore Dead Space 3's micro-transactions

    No deal for me , i dont mind a micro transaction or 2 but this seems ridiculous.

    And i just downloaded a new co-op story for Far cry 3 for...wait for it.....free!.
    Thats how it should be when you pay a premium for a top game.
    Unfortunatley , thats how its gonna be from now on kids.

  • Analysts doubt Sony will risk gamer backlash with anti-used game tech for PS4 as GameStop shares fall

    i would never buy a console i could not play 2nd hand games from.
    I just cannot afford 6 or 7 full price games in a year , i always have to wait a few months for certain games i WANT to play but cannot afford at full price.
    I would move to xbox if this happened , but i am sure it would'nt as i am not alone in this thought , i am sure.

  • Saturday Soapbox: The story of the microtransaction

  • mistachicken 01/12/2012

    hmm..yes , this is a slightly odd article.
    considering we HAD to pay to play arcade games until we got choice , for example when gaming finally started to catch up with a quality snes game or a quality ps1 game , and i mean STARTED to catch up not overtake as in high end pc or 360\ps3. Which of course then pushed the arcade machine into a niche market.
    I do not see the comparisent myself and the only thing in common was actually shelling out small amounts of cash , the actual mentality has changed and is completely differant.
    Myself...i choose to play AAA titles and never bother with the microtransaction , but thats just how i role.. you may be dirrerant , cheers.

  • Saturday Soapbox: Death of the MMORPG

  • mistachicken 17/11/2012

    being a pc wannabe and never being able to afford a kick bum machine , i only really embraced guild wars , does this count as an mmorpg? , forgive my ignorance. I really enjoyed it , but i tried to go back to it last year and it did seem extremely tedious. personally , i am bored of grinding to get my stats up. I think it's because so many other genres now command my attention. Maybe if i could have played WOW i would have a differant opinion? feel free to let me know how much i missed out , or indeed if i did at all. Reply +3

    knowing so many people with children that play halo , they hopefully will see through this , but there will always be kids that will get taken into this. Thats too long for any normal person , even an addicted gamer like me.

  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night rises on EU PSN

  • mistachicken 05/10/2012

    I am playing this right now (again!!) on my psp (ps1 version imported into the psp). It is without doubt one of the finest and well thought video games of all time , the depth and scope to the game is ridiculous and its secrets hold divine rewards. Its worth looking for tips on t' internet as you can't possibly just play through it and miss the MASSIVE bonus of another 10 hours gameplay for the **spoilers** castle! , anyone who's played this all the way through will know what i mean :-)
    This game has dated graphics , but yes they still hold up now , especially in this 8 bit 16 bit retro graphics thing we are going through.

    get it!!!!!

    i can't imagine the power consumption on playing something like bf3 on high , so you would probably have to plug in while playing. At least you could take it on hols or something which would be great , but for a couple of grand i'll stick to me normal lappie and some old school gaming to pass the time and wait for the big dogs until i get home.

    like bonzo says , if you can get a flashed psp then you can add emulators that work perfectly. If you could get a psp 1000 then no modding needed and it might work perfectly with little effort (cfw), i dont have one of course as that would be illegal , and i couldnt tell you that it costs very little to get one and do it , :-) cheers
