@the_dudefather ME2 was my first taste of the series and i loved the planet scanning and mining.

I missed that in ME3, and i think the disappointment led me to lose interest in finishing it.
I never did find out what the big problem with the ending was.

@Garibaldi haven't experienced that on mine. (famous last words).
did experience a mission where there was no floor midway through and had to quit and reload the game (restarting mission didn't fix it).

So, will Sony actually allow PS4 and Xbox One owners to play together?

rickster999

It's interesting that last gen Microsoft responded to the question of cross console play as 'something we're not interested in'.

Yet now they seem to be lagging behind the PS4 in global sales they're now very keen on the idea & getting plenty of coverage for it.

It's funny how the mighty have fallen and yet the media are ignorant to their previosly pretentious response to the same subject.

Personally I prefer my PS4 to remain segregated to the XboxOne as the gamerbase of the Microsoft platform does not appeal to me.
Fair enough a fair few players switch platforms this time round; which is acceptable as they're at least objective and not insular.

Spoiler alert article - and the game isn't even out yet.
This article is about 24 hours too early.

Howabout letting ANYONE actually get to this point and then publish the article.

I watched 12 hours of GTA streaming yesterday, with no spoilers at all.

Read some news & Eurogamer clearly display's a thumbnail of the spoiler in ther news thread.

Nice one EuroGayers!

Activision blames low Call of Duty: Ghosts pre-orders on next-gen hesitation

I certainly won't be buying it current gen, as I'm anticipating in being a day1 next gen purchaser.
But looking at the next gen game offerings, yet another COD (which I'd probably hammer the MP on) is at the bottom of the list of my next gen purchases.

@Sharzam What you are missing is that the price point for AAA titles on PC via digital only are 25-50% cheaper than on console.
PC gamers are already paying what console gamers expect to pay for preowned games.
Would you be happy with Steam asking 50 per AAA title for the first 6 months?

SimCity servers appear to be coping as game hits UK

Server capacity is no excuse whatsoever.

They make billions of dollars a year, they should oversubscribe on servers at launch and then scale down over time.
Rather than the current procedure of undersubscribing, causing release of a 'broken' product - and only then reluctantly increasing servers and telling us how generous and clever they are by adding more servers.

Backwards ass method of releasing an always online game!

Sony to drop DualShock for the next PlayStation - report

rickster999

5 years ago

Already bought a Vita for the touchscreen remote-play interactivity with the PS4.

Not sure if I'm keen on a new shape pad, as the Sony dualshock was ultimately what won the console war in my own living room.
Biometricks are interesting, but I'm not sure I want anything other than my finger/thumb reaction's to drive my gaming experience.

Might have to stock up on a few DS3's before they bite the dust.

Plus, won't a swanky pad up the price for the new console?
600 PS4 anyone?

Ignorant parent highlights his ignorance and believes it's not his fault.

Obviously no parental settings on the kids account, as he wouldn't have been able to purchase COD if they were.

and rather than bo11ocking his kid, he parades him about as a victim.

And, daily mail!, enough said.

The tools are there to cover every complaint this guy has, I do so hope microsoft give them the corporate eff off.

Battlefield 3: How Fan-Run Servers Are Ruining DICE's Game

rickster999

6 years ago

I only picked up BF3 a few months ago for PS3, and haven't experienced anything like this article.
I did get banned for shooting down (too many apparently) choppers one time, but other than that it's been ok.
Maybe it's because I go for CQ games, but i mix it between quick game and server browsing - as I loath & actively avoid Operation Metro.

Either way - even with all this possible crap, it cannot get to the shite fest that is MW3 - and it cost me 100 to find that out.....

Sony survey hints at cross-platform digital discounts for PS3/Vita games

rickster999

6 years ago

I think for all PS3 games they should allow you to activate a Vita license for around 5 to 10, if it's a full offline game.
If it's a cross MP game like that all stars smash bro's thing; then I'd happily pay 50% to provide the same content I have on the PS3 to my vita.

Gaikai to bring backwards compatability back to PS3

rickster999

6 years ago

I pretty much guessed the Gaikai announcement would lead to a on-demand access to the PS1 & 2 catalogue.

But what I'd like is the announcement that they'll allow you to open up access to already owned games, similar to the Vita service SCEJ provided.
But seeing as I've only a couple of PS1 & 2 games on disc wouldn't really matter to me.

As to the people complaining about having to rebuy games they own, I suppose it's a case of either heralding a redundant game and complaining about not being able to play it - or buy it from this service and enjoy all over.

I also mentioned on a different site regarding then apply a time based pricing structure providing access to all games rather than a price to open up each individual title - ala Steam and GFW; but was instantly shot down.

Views and thoughts on time based pricing??

What would happen if GAME died?

rickster999

6 years ago

They're convenient to me to get a day one game I hadn't been interested in pre-ordering, plus being able to trade in old games against it at the same time.
Seeing as i work in the town centre they're also the most convenient to me.

It's a shame but it looks like internet shopping has taken too much trade away - considering they themselves were offering preorder bundle's online that they couldn't/wouldn't offer in store.

Sounds like 50/50 between lower footfall & poor business practice.

I like the concept and the gameplay looks interesting.

But I just don't like this type of graphics, so as great a game is - if it looks ugly as hell (my opinion) I won't play it.

First Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 DLC screenshot released

rickster999

I see a shitstorm happening if non Elite 360 gamers get this before PS3&PC Elite subscribers.
But I reckon they'll release it to 360 Elite, then AT THE SAME TIME release it to PS3&PC Elite as well as non-elite 360 users.

This will cober Microsoft's early DLC requirements, as well as the PS3&PC Elite members, getting it earlier than their same system peers.

Not sure if I'll bother this time round, have lost my interest in any and all FPS.
