@manapause You can, though the problem I have is that my PS4 friends have to go to a PC, install the Epic Launcher, work out their own Epic account, add mine, have me host the game and be convinced not to use PSN Party Chat (so I can speak to them). And they are a stubborn lot.

The other stab in the face for Bluehole is that this, like Fortnite, is another free to play game.

PUBG is still pretty healthy, but this is gonna be yet another way of getting this sort of game without having to pay Ł25 for it.

What's lost and what's gained in Destiny 2's excellent PC version

Yaster

6 months ago

It's a shame that cross platform play has not been included, even if its just for the co-op modes. I was pleased to find I could still join my clan mates and reap the benefits of our top level status and rewards, but all my friends are on PS4 so I'm not going to turn my back on them.
I was able to play with a friend on Fortnite last night, me on PC and him on PS4 and it worked perfectly. I don't see what the problem is.

Sure I can build up a PC based friend list but I'd be a bit of a dick if I walked out on those guys :P But as a result, my experience on Battle.net is a bit of a lonely one.

Plus there's the extra strike and crucible map that the PC version is missing (from the PS4 version), those that are new to the game won't miss them off course but you do feel that the non-PS4 versions get the shaft in that respect.

Blizzard launches Battle.net mobile app for Android and iOS

A lot more useful than you guys are letting on. Battle.net so far has not had any presence outside of the computer app when it comes to community features.

There's a couple of gamers in my office who I have kept meaning to add to Battle.net but always forget. Now at least I can whip out the phone and add them there and then. And no, I cannot install Battle.net on my work PC.

It's handy when you're out at events like EGX too as that's an opportunity to meet new friends and add them to your friends list.

You might even meet that special someone who plays WoW @berelain

Thing is, there are some elements of the Fortnite mode which are ripped right from PUBG, though I haven't played the game myself (Battlegrounds that is), it seems like everyone is streaming it these days so I've seen enough of it. There's that pre-game warm up area and the bit where the players jump out of the plane. Both of those are in Fortnite and the latter kind of seems like it's parodying PUBG by making it a flying bus. Though Fortnite was in development for years, It's clear that this mode wouldn't have existed without Battlegrounds, even if the general idea of the genre was already a thing before.

I'm happy that they think the mode is close enough to their own game though, mean's I don't have to pay Ł27 for something that is still technically unfinished.

Bluepoint? You mean Bluehole?

Funnily enough, Bluepoint ported PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale to the Vita (and their engine was responsible for the game itself, even the PS3 version).

So, kinda Battle Royale related, there might have been a confusion there.

@DreadedWalrus Well ideally they would need to keep the content the same across all platforms so even if PS4 is doing well it would still be a no go.

I think people misunderstood my earlier comment. PC is just one of three platforms that Battleborn came out on. And the PC market is highly saturated with multiplayer games. The game thrived on PS4 for example,but there were no live player stats that people could pull apart there, no one really knew how well the game was doing on console.

PC isn't the be all and end all for multiplayer gaming, people.

Remember that bit in the first Despicable Me film where he has finally managed to get a hold of the shrink ray and is pitching his plan to get his loan but the manager tells him that although he loves everything about his plan, there is one thing he does not like and that's Gru himself? It's kind of how I feel about Lawbreakers.

It's a brilliant game, but the way it has been delivered to us and is being handled is just a trainwreck. And I can't get on board with Cliff, as much as I liked Gears 1 when it was out.

The game also has a real condescending message when you log into it where it offers to show you a tutorial explaining that it was created with "console players in mind" to "introduce them to playing as a team". And that it "may be of interest" to PC players.

Fuck you Brink.

It'll shoot back down again soon, mark my words. Everyone seems to think that "failing" games going free to play will boost their playerbase but it's usually only the case for the first week.

Even in the match I played last night soon after it was announced there were people in the chat log saying "this is shit".

Why Overwatch on console is in desperate need of a report button

Yaster

8 months ago

@Dark-Angel Yeah it should be noted that the PS4 profile report function is only for reporting things like player names, "about me" descriptions, "real" names and pictures as well as the "banner" image you can place along the top. As per EG's screenshot in the article, the report flow will direct you back to the game if your complaint is in regards to gameplay.

Unfortunately not all games have reporting functions though, case in point here with OW.

Yaster

@Dark-Angel But that's not from using "hacks, bots or cheating devices" no? What you describe is from using exploits using map geometry, right? Its a good point, but even though people have said that Bliz don't seem to give a crap about the console versions, there always seems to be a patch each time I turn it on. So it seems they are still lifting fingers to update the game.

If a player is found to be cheating-or using hacks, bots, or third-party software that provides any sort of unfair advantage,
Are these a problem on the console version? I'm only a casual player but I haven't ever seen this sort of behaviour on PS4.

For the other points, griefing - just block comms, my profile defaults me to party chat only. And throwing? I just find another game after the current one finishes.

I know a lot of people say that throwing is more a problem in competitive matches, personally I would never play in competitive mode without 5 friends on my team. Almost guaranteed never to have any drops or drama.

At the end of the day it's just a colour scheme for your sparrow, there'll be hundreds of different skins in the game anyway. Plus it's not going to make you be able to move faster or anything.
