Battlezone 1998 is getting remastered for PC

One of my all time great PC games which I played through to completion back in the day. Hope the remaster isn't another bodge-job.

For anyone interested, the original games are available free and modified to work on newer systems (complete with multiplayer) here:

I remember having this on the Spectrum back in the day. Such an awesome game and like many others had great difficulty with the hanger level. Perseverance eventually paid off though and I could soon beat the game without losing a life. I still play this from time to time even now via emulation.

This and Beach Head.....good times :-)

How to cheaply upgrade your PS4 to 2TB

D_arkTrooper

@Laryd1985

You will need a USB stick formatted to Fat32 with a folder named PS4 containing a subfolder named UPDATE on it. You just download the latest update from the Sony site and copy it into the UPDATE subfolder.

Co-incidence...I did this VERY SAME upgrade with the same drive just last week.

Works perfectly and the Seagate enclosure is surprisingly easy to open. I just used a couple of credit cards to avoid damage to the plastic enclosure.

Argos had the drives in stock for £59.99.

F1 2013 review

D_arkTrooper

5 years ago

The broken (and never fixed in 3 years) save system is what is potentially putting me off this game. Seriously, doing all the laps of practice to get the car handling correctly, the qualifiers and the races themselves are great, but when the save file gets corrupted after three seasons through no fault of your own (and this is/was a HIGHLY discussed issue online) then confidence of the problem being rectified in a new release dwindles to the point of e non-existence.

This is a fantastic game. Bought it a week or so ago on STEAM and already got 55 hours on it. Just messing about and testing what the engines and things can do is loads of fun. Be warned though it IS difficult till you get the hang of how things work. I highly recommend looking up Scott Manleys videos on YouTube as they're educational, informative and sometimes laugh out loud funny as f**k as well.

Samsung Galaxy S4 has an Xbox 360-like gaming controller with an extendable clamp that holds phone

D_arkTrooper

Can vouch for the GameKlip (S3 version). A great bit of kit. Yes its expensive and yes, you have to already own a PS3 pad but it does the job perfectly. I'm not too impressed with the latest GameKlip tho where you have to buy the bracket and a case that matches whatever model of phone you use and literally stick it to the bracket.

But anyway....

Island Network
Roam the seas to establish a network of island bases for defense, mining and manufacturing. A steady supply of resources is vital to your campaignís success.

I'm sure I read a few weeks back (when the initial notes for this patch were first listed) that there was going to be a fix for when you spawn on the top of the planes/helis at the beginning of the round.

Although there doesn't seem to be any mention of it in this final list, I'm rather hoping they have actually cured that irritating issue.

Sony apologises for new PlayStation Store download errors

D_arkTrooper

Same problem here.Finally replaced my Phat 80gig machine with a nice new Slim on Thursday, swapped the hard drive for my 320gig, went to the store to re-download all my goodies thinking a backup would be too much hassle and bingo, no download list available. To rub salt in the wounds, any online passes (in my case Battlefield3) have to be redownloaded and because of the maintenance calamity at Sony's end, I'm unable to do so.

5 days and counting now so understandably less than impressed.

Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand Review

D_arkTrooper

6 years ago

On PS3, the Karkand add-on seems to have introduced a freeze/lock-up issue at random that only a hard reset will cure. Had zero problems BEFORE the d/c was installed in well over 200 hrs online play, now I'm getting 2 or 3 freezes during a long play session. Looking around the internet and it looks like it's a common issue.
