Worth noting that Codemasters picked up the Evolution devs, who did DriveCLUB VR, ... Maybe they had a hand in this!

Free Overcooked Festive Seasoning DLC packs flamethrower

@CatBusStop I thought this too, it's almost got me annoyed. Perversely, feeling miffed about this would not be an issue if this also cost money.... Which is silly.
Anyway, this is great news, more Overcooked - free or not, is very welcome.

A single piece of Red Dead artwork sent Take-Two shares soaring

macksed

@riceNpea I think we are agreed on the wording used. Although a rise due to an earnings call, to me, is not really noteworthy - whereas I was interested to see this investor reaction to two tweets with no content hinting at something we already know. I assume they are just encouraged by the internet's reaction.

Also, the fact it's returning to a level that it's previously been at seems irrelevant to me. It doesn't make the this impact any more or less relevant.

@riceNpea hyperbolic wording aside. 5% isn't insignificant, the recent falls can be seen to different extents across the index and competitors, none of which have seen this sudden uptick, suggesting it probably is a reaction to two tweets rather than wider market movements. There's also s large increase in trade volume which isn't seen with others or in the wider market. So I'd say the high level gist of the story is fair enough.

Maybe try playing it with her? My partner doesn't game but having hesitantly given this a go, now loves it. We have 3*s on every level... Which took a long time with a non gamer, but it was great fun. She seems even more excited about this DLC than I am.

The PS4 Slim is real - confirmed

macksed

2 years ago

Isn't it quite normal for a lower end item to be deliberately relatively less attractive? Encourages the less price sensitive to spend more when they otherwise might not have. I think this used to be a common strategy for lots of products, including supermarket basic ranges.
Having said that, I'm quite indifferent about how it looks.

Why you shouldn't ignore Uncharted 4's multiplayer

I pre-ordered uncharted back before the last couple of delays, which means I now have it, just weeks before a big exam I'm studying for. As such, I've decided to hold off playing the single player until afterwards, but having read this I'm tempted to dabble in the multiplayer.

Does anyone know if doing so would spoil anything about the campaign at all?

Thanks!

I feel like this is a massive missed chance to get in some Mirrors Edge-ness out there again; I can imagine that engine for the running malarkey and then the racing separate might make a very attractive proposition.

yeah it does seem like it should be important to highlight the fact it is very likely that some online functionality will be restored before that date; a lack of store probably wont annoy consumers so much (might be a touch different for PSN devs though).

Why Sony passed on Natal tech

macksed

8 years ago

I don't believe this to be bull (for once) because years ago, about mid ps2 generation, New Scientist had a several page feature on playstation and the eyetoy, and the 3D camera they were working on, it was fascinating; they spoke about it as if it was definetly coming out and then it never did; I'd always assumed the ps3 eye would have the tech that was in the article so was quite shocked when it didn't; guess it was a cost thing then.

edit: grammar and i'd written ps3 instead of 2

Not that I particularly care about the console war, does MS really think that a massive corporation like sony would have a business plan that even if successful will run them into the ground? Bad PR and over-expectations are one thing but that would be pretty shocking...
