@Bertie Thanks, the comments about it being a bit immature have put me off somewhat, but I'll give it a go anyway! Review scores on Amazon and Goodreads are high, at any rate :)

Rich Stanton on: Skill and the random element

StixxUK

3 years ago

Great article.

Another thing to note about randomness is that over time, a pattern emerges. Although the skilled player will occasionally, "unfairly" lose to a less-skilled player, over time they will win more games than they lose.

There's always an element of randomness in the world and reflecting this in games can definitely add an extra element of excitement, whether it's not knowing whether a risky tactic will pay off, or being an unskilled player and pulling off an unlikely victory against your mate who's been playing for years.

Media-streaming app Plex now available on PS4 and PS3 in Europe

Just tried the web app version (free) and it's actually pretty amazing. Sorted all my videos flawlessly and now I can watch them or listen to my music on virtually any device around the house.

Awesome.

Funnily enough I'd been looking at Plex quite a bit recently as a means of streaming to my TV as its built-in DLNA interface is incredibly bad (LG WebOS).

I haven't tried it yet as I'd have to pay 3 for the third party app - which isn't a lot - but I'm reluctant to hand over anything without testing it.

I think the subscription is worse value than the one-off app purchases, although these aren't available yet it looks like they will be soon.

TBH if it works well, which by most accounts it does, 3 for an app as a one-off seems absolutely fine, assuming this is how much it ends up costing when that becomes an option for PS4.

More exclusives could be a good thing for the industry... Without them there's no reason to own more than one console (unless you have friends on both sides of the divide).

I think this is a very interesting development and it's always good to see progression.

Although I understand the lack of scores I still think you should aim yo answer the question - is it worth my time and money?

You could extend the format to free or open betas and simply tell us if a game is worth trying in its current state.

I know it's already been said, but it seems odd to spend a "game of the year" type article talking about what's wrong with the game and conclude that they aren't a fan.

Would it make more sense to have someone write it for whom, y'know, it was one of their games of the year?

@Jordyce it was hyped among the "hardcore" in the press and on the forums and websites. Not in the same way as the latest COD though, in the cinemas and TV ad-breaks.
