  • PlayStation Plus October line-up revealed

  • tinners 01/10/2015

    @tinners So if lets say they offered NO Mans Sky for free or Minecraft I take it you would complain then also just because it is an 'indie game'??
    @jamster126 Think you missed the mark a little there fella, the point is you compare other services out there such as MS gaming with gold who have Ass Creed Black Flag and Tomb Raider. 2 AAA games compared with what PS+ is currently offering and it's a fair complaint.

    Im not dismissing anything because its an indy title but im also not ignoring what other services offer for the same amount of money.

    Don't get me wrong free is cool and a good game is a good game, but by now i'd expect something like Knack or the first NBA 2k to be making an appearance, there's only so much super meat boy and "insert indie game title here" that I can take each month. Reply +8

  • PES 2016 vs FIFA 16: a friendly comparison

  • tinners 18/09/2015


    heh yeah ye olden days of consumer fairness are a distant memory, it seems the bigger our industry gets the more us gamers suffer for our years of patronage in helping it get so big.

    There is the odd flutter of fairness but never from the likes of EA and Konami like you said.

    Makes you wonder what the profit margin would be like if EA decided to give you an update from FIFA 15 to 16 like they did with the last World Cup release for say 15.

    Im guessing if a person within EA dared suggest this they were probably cast aside like an outspoken employee working at Mr Burns Nuclear Power Plant :) :(

    I think what I can take form this is, both versions don't really need purchasing again if you have last years iteration, back in the ps2 winning eleven days I couldn't wait for a tweaked version to drop but it wasn't 50 quid a pop then either, Reply +1

  • DriveClub's latest update makes some big changes

  • tinners 18/08/2015

    Fanboys to your posts....and blindly..... defend!!!

    30 fps locked is fine but obviously some people don't care about the smoothness just numbers.

    Whoever thinks it's like Forza can't distinguish a racing sim over an arcade racer *sigh*

  • DriveClub overtakes 2m sales

  • tinners 03/08/2015

    @LLJaf Wouldn't say its had a huge over hall but certainly the Drifting was addressed in patches along with certain cars feeling different and more stable since the initial release.

    @nathull - How are you comparing this to Forza? when it's more like a PGR/Codemasters game

  • tinners 03/08/2015

    All they need to do is sort out Private Servers and all is forgiven for one of the worst launches for a game I've seen and paid for.

    The handling was an issue but now it feels like a really solid arcade race and those graphics/that engine :-)

  • Rory McIlroy PGA Tour review

  • tinners 21/07/2015

    Have to admit were not off to a very good start with the next gen iteration of games when all we get is half finished rushed out games which seem to lack the polish that you would expect from the bigger companies let alone the small ones struggling to make ends meat in this AAA Climate of gaming that we (the gamers) are now funding at 50 quid a pop.

    I can't think of one title this year bar lots of great but admittedly not exactly cutting edge indie games that are actually solid from Day 1, we seem to be glorified Beta testers who are paying for a product that may be fully realised in 6-8 months down the line which begs the question, why should they be allowed to charge us full price for any games that have A) crippling frame rates, B) terrible screen tear C) multiple crashes or bugs that should never be allowed passed certification D) Half the content of the previous iterations or even worse E) the DLC climate we now live in where you pay over the odds for a game that is only incomplete due to the money grabbing publishers wanting you to funnel all your funds into one game that should be a complete package once you have spent your 50 quid and not once you have spent over 80 + just to get the complete story to a campaign (Destiny) or to get a mode you had a year ago on your previous console (F1/PGA etc)

    I would say at least the games coming from Japan still have that high standard you have come to expect in say Vanquish or anything by Capcom but even Bloodborne as great as it is has tarnished this fact of late with frame pacing and constant patches.

    Whatever happened to quality control and value for money :( maybe the new street fighter will be the one exception to this rather worrying trend of next gen tiles.....

  • Sony says sorry for PSN Christmas outage with five days of PS Plus

  • tinners 05/01/2015

    These little fame seeking ginch like fucktards need to be found and shamed to the entire world, once all these kids whose xbox's couldn't boot a game or ps4's couldn't sign in on Christmas Day grow up they can go all jay and silent bob on their scrawny asses with a steady ddos flow of monthly beatings and a constant update of lizard address changes or witness protection names!

    Seems to be more an inherent flaw with the internet harking back to the early days where ddos attacks can be done by any faceless prick with a bit of security knowledge, and all they suggest is Sony or MS hire them to solve the problem, as if a multimillion dollar company can't hire people of the same caliber or better.

    Beaten by kids or found and killed by robocop is the only option!

  • Xbox One without Kinect "levels the playing field" with PS4

  • tinners 14/05/2014

    @Confucius sounds like they could raise it by 200 quid now and you would pay it, ahh ignorance is bliss :) Reply 0
  • tinners 14/05/2014


    i don't see what this does other than actually bring the price down to what it should have been from the start, you don't get momentum from a price drop? they now need another drop to 299 to make up for the lack of power thats becoming more and more apparent with each game being announced.

    Sony need to do the sum total of fuck all at present they are in the driving seat while MS keeps trying to claw back the gap in now sales and technology.

    i think the question is who didn't see this coming as it was a given? also ES Ram is still in that thing so good luck getting a huge performance boost 10%....wow! :p

    So thats everyone then, i love the way they try and make it sound isolated when it's been completely fucked for everyone since Day 1

  • Xbox One FIFA bundle was not a reaction to E3 criticism

  • tinners 22/08/2013

    Did i miss the update where GAME who i pre ordered my FIFA from sent a mail out saying they will also swap it for COD Ghosts which i thought was pretty big given the amount of sales that thing gets per iteration?

    Maybe they have gone back on this as i don't see it being reported?

  • Sony's E3 victory was a PR stunt, but PlayStation 4 is still the one to watch

  • tinners 13/06/2013

    @arcam Definitely! But the only business models we "gamers" should care about is the price and im already watching The Apprentice, if MS released games on demand for the same price so I don't have to que up with a load of yoots for the midnight release of BF4, but also have the option to buy and own like PS4 without the connectivity bullshit then it would be a closer contest.

    It also suggests in this fickle world of gaming we live in that Xbox diehards get upset about an "opinion"

    PC users go on the offensive due to the PS4 finally using PC architect and not having that DDR...yet along with a boat load of 3rd and 1st Party exclusives

    And this is normal for console releases tbh I choose "games"!

  • tinners 13/06/2013

    It's also a pretty damning statement to the Industry as a whole when you think that the biggest moment or "cheergasm" @ E3 was weather Sony would decide to stick to something that millions of "Gamers" were crying out for.

    Not the unveiling of a massive game that gets us "Gamers" in hysterics, surely that's what should be getting us excited @ any E3 event?

    And you will still get the so called gamer-crowd following the XB1 with total ignorance like an extra from a Walking Dead Episode, but if your a real gamer for almost 100 less with more grunt and a company that actually listens to it's customer and reads threads, PS4 is the only "Gamers" choice that seems viable.

  • PES 2013 review

  • tinners 18/09/2012

    Thing is if FIFA and PRO both get a 9 and there really is nothing much to split them my shallow football loving side will go with licensed teams, EA have the monopoly for now.

    But given I swore by Pro until the 360 iterations came along its hard for me to ignore a 9, that being sid it needs no be a pretty big leap from previous as FIFA just has the edge in this current era, demos are hard to get a read on when you hardly get time to enjoy a full half.

    Buying both tho isn't really an option for me it's like when in trying to play soul caliber and vf you can only get so good at either of your constantly chopping and changing, maybe if all you play is football then its an option

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Review

  • tinners 23/08/2012

    Been on this all night but tbh it's damn near unplayable at times, the party system other than private games is just refusing to work, it's crashed a few tImes joining friends games, and forcing you to join game chat is fine but if the idea was everyone joins game chat so no one can ghost in an xbl party, then that idea makes no sense at all as both sides can hear each other at all times.

    But when it works it's glorious cs that I spent a ridiculous amount of time playing, just patch it please.

  • Metro Politics: What Xbox's New Dash Means

    @telboy007 exactly that I think but I've put nothing on the cloud so seems like a bug to me. If enabling the cloud does this to my 360 I'd rather leave it be. Reply 0
  • tinners 08/12/2011

    @suicida Hi mate, you know what I've figured out what it is i think, it's the new cloud service as I never have anything downloading when I shut down my 360.

    Ever since I enabled that on the new dash it's been acting weird, I'll check to make sure it's defo that but it's the only thing I changed recently.

    Lol "fans who love football play PES?" Are you mad? I loved football enough to realise it's not still the PS2 era where it actually played wayyyy better than FIFA, more like deluded fanbys living in the passed still love PES.

    Problem with pro now is FIFA finally feels complete and with all the licenses, pro was the footbling god that didn't need licenses etc it had the most realistic gameplay compared to arcadey FIFA, never thought I'd care until pro
    went next gen and suddenly all the suble updates in the ps2 era were now a distant memory once FIFA 10/11 came out.

    Now FIFA has the subtle updates that im dying to play each year, a shame as I always envisaged pro being undisputed king eventually, that would be in a perfect world where EA doesn't have millions to throw
    at a company who finally get it right
