Switch hacked: unpatchable exploit is a security nightmare for Nintendo

@clashcityrocker That's a real dumb attempt to try and convince yourself this portable is just a tablet.

This is not what happens when you use '3 year old chipsets'.

EA admits it "got it wrong" over Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot boxes

Carlo

@Silverflash "...they're not sorry that they did it, they're sorry for themselves that it blew up in their faces,"

Well, we know for next time how to engineer change in parasitic companies like this. Find the thing they really do care about, and deny them it until we get what we want.

PlayStation VR is beginning to feel a bit like the Vita

Carlo

3 weeks ago

@OurDogFudge I'm using the V2 PSVR. There's a bit of a mess between the PS4 and the breakout/control box, but a single thin cable from the box sat right by my PS4 to my headset (including on-headset integrated audio) is the only cable I actually see.

Sure, it's what?... 3 more wires behind the TV now?... But I literally don't see them.

The year in loot boxes

Carlo

4 months ago

There are no spiraling cost to make games, it's already been proven.

It's spiraling profits to shareholders, who are demanding ever greater returns on their investments that are driving the inclusion of post-purchase in-game purchases and season passes.

I keep trying to warn fellow gamers (for years!) it'll come to a point where you'll have to buy your bullets in FPS.

Good to see Prey this high up in the charts. It's poor start and reviews due to game control lag (later patched!) really caused its failure and it really shouldn't have.

Prey is an amazing game, amazing story, and massively re-playable! It's so cheap now there really isn't a reason to not try it.

Carlo

@Plinko Becauswe we're fucking sick of this bullshit, and many of us will be refusing to buy games with these gambling systems in them until they address our concerns.

And we'll be telling all our friends and families to do likewise. I for one am quite happy to continue to scare mums and dads into avoiding these kinds of games by calling them sinister gambling targetting kids to help influence them into avoiding buying games like this as well.

This is what happens when you don't bribe lobbyist groups BEFORE trying to pull shady shit EA.

If you want to see how it's done properly, take a look at the efforts being made with Net Neutriality (https://www.savetheinternet.com/net-neutrality-what-you-need-know-now)

Us internet cape-wearers are going after this shady shit now too.

Destiny 2's first year of raiding looks like it'll take place entirely on Leviathan

Carlo

5 months ago

A new raid on Leviathan should have been a free update to keep people playing the game, a paid-for expansion should be a whole new story, with locations, bosses, end-game content, collectables etc.

Carlo

5 months ago

Well, that sounds shit. It's already thin enough as it is, now the new content isn't really a new world, new story, or a new raid location in any real sense of these terms means it's not really good value for money.

These days that's all it seems to boil down to with games: How much money can we get away with charging, for the bare minimum.

Bought D2 and enjoyed it while it lasted (an I'm no hardcore gamer, I've recorded about 80 hours tops on it). I think I'll stop playing, and stop buying it now.

@Simatron3000 I think you might be retarded. It's not a better game. It's a genre that's got a flooded market. It's dlc model is ridiculously overpriced.
