@kyleforrester87 same here, i guess it's how you treat them

There was nothing wrong with the way FFXIII was, ALL the FF games before it were linear too they hid it better

@kyleforrester87 Nah, just average controller use here. Granted its a LOT of use...

Decided to dig out my old PSP that no longer holds a charge (It is 14 years old I suppose) to play Mega Man Maverick Hunter X in preparation for the X Collection on Switch.

I just can't do it. My thumb can't bend the way it needs while I hold the PSP, especially not with Dash being on Circle for obvious reasons to do with Quick Switching on L and R.

This doesn't bode well for the X Collection sadly.

@Knuckles-Fajita Lol I would if I didn't have so many games on the thing. I wish the adapter I use on my Switch so I can use my DS4 controller would work on the PS4 and then I could use a different controller.

@kyleforrester87 Again, just normal use.

Why is it when someone goes through controllers it's right away the person who uses fault and people just can't admit they they manufacturer just makes a bad controller?

@Tasuki Because not everyone has the controllers break like you have. And I think you are in the minority if you think of how many PS4 consoles are out there. If there is a problem with the controllers we would soon hear about it more often and then you could say Sony have manufactured a dodgy controller.

If a controller can't withstand general use for at least a few years without faults then that's a problem in my eyes.

But things like the Bluetooth dying, batteries giving out, or any of the not button-based components failing is not the users fault.

Unless you take a controller apart and mess it up.

@Tasuki
You probably already know but the initial PS4 controllers when the PS4 launched were actually faulty. The widest known issue being the two sticks falling apart due to the materials used.

Totally get where @Tasuki is congrats from. I'd be beyond pissed if it had happened to me this often. Every new controller is of course a game you could have bought at launch or a dinner for two.

On the other hand, like I said, I believe Sony's controllers are fine. Especially the V2 are a large improvement: better battery and more sturdy buttons and triggers.

Maybe most of us on here are very lucky, or Tasuki has the worst luck.

@Knuckles-Fajita comes across as downright trolling on the matter, though.

Knuckles-Fajita

@Kidfried Well no, its a legitimate thing. If you're just using your controller and suddenly the wireless capabilities stop working...that's a problem. Same with unusually fast battery degradation.

Being rough with a controller is one thing and entirely on the user, but unusually fast wear and tear or straight up faults in components is another matter entirely.

This all started because my Dualshock 3, genuinely, would not work even when plugged in. The ability to receive power had just died after only a few years. Whether you consider that trolling is down to you sir, but not everything I say is a trolling move and I'd like it if you stopped referring to everything I say in such a manner in future.

It's almost as if not all things are created equal and we don't all use those things in exactly the same way for exactly the same amount of time. Mental. Moving on..

Yep with that said I think that will be all for the great controller debate of '18. This is just a case of you are going to believe what you want to believe.

So today it was 108 where I live. I hate this kind of weather, it just makes it that you want do nothing but lounge around.

So, yesterday I saw something really special. I went to the live performance of Dear Esther, the indie game by Chinese Room. The game was played live in front of an audience from start to finish on a big screen.

However, the sound of the game was pretty much muted and played live. The musicians that recorded the soundtrack were all there and playing along to what was happening in the video game. There was also someone on a laptop providing special effects. It sounded exactly like the soundtrack, but it was way more engaging this way of course.

The voice actor of the main character stood at the center of the stage and narrated the story. Truly brilliant.

I know there was quite an extensive tour of this project throughout the UK last fall, did anyone see it?

@Kidfried I heard about it but it wasn't anywhere near me. That is amazing and I am incredibly jealous.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

@Kidfried Wow, that is really interesting. I didn’t even know such a project existed.
I guess it’s the equivalent of going to see a favorite musical artist or band live in concert. It’s a better experience hearing them perform live. Very cool.
I haven’t played Dear Esther, but on a whim I decided to try Everybody’s Gone to Rapture this weekend and although I’m only about an hour into it, I’m impressed with Chinese Room so far. Very polished presentation.
With a name like “Chinese Room” I would have thought the developer was out of Asia, but apparently they must be a British company, right? Those crazy British people are always thinking up these cool ideas. 😉

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

@Kidfried That sounds pretty cool! Where did you go to see it?

Octane

Kidfried

@Octane It was in Amsterdam, which is about 2.5 hours from where I live (link).

@Th3solution From what I heard, this project was about the first time a video game was played live in front of an audience with live music and voice acting. A lot of that is due to the fact that the game can be completed within 1.5 hours, though. But I would love to see more stuff like this.

It was kind of alienating to see a gamer sit on stage next to an orchestra, in a positive way of course! And it was great to experience a whole game together with such a large audience, a stark contrast with sitting on the sofa on my own.

@Rudy_Manchego Who knows what the future holds!
