Dodoo commented on Rumour: Sony Bend Was Working on an inFAMOUS T...:

@Max04 lol ;)

@flummerfelt I still think the Vita is a worthwhile purchase as there are many good AAA games in the catalogue, it's just that there is not much in the pipeline.

If you're considering it then have a look at the PSN store to see how many digital games interest you, then how many retail games. The more that you like the look of the more likely you will get better value from the machine. If you have a PS3/PS4 then also remember it can be used for remote play.

There are so many indie games on Vita which is its saving grace imo. Recently I've been playing and loving Frozen Synapse Prime, The Swapper, Machinarium, Unfinished Swan among others and they are brilliant on the move. There are so many games like this on Vita.

I'm just disappointed with the state of AAA releases which now tend to be Japanese imports. Having said that there are still lots of good retail games like Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Persona 4, MGS Collection, Tearaway etc.

I don't regret getting my Vita but I wish it had better support from Sony.



Dodoo commented on Rumour: Sony Bend Was Working on an inFAMOUS T...:

@Max04 Yeah fingers crossed E3 will come up with some nice reveals.

I think Sony owe it to Vita owners to make at least one or two more AAA titles, especially considering that was how they advertised it originally. I was holding out hope for Gravity Rush 2 but feel that might now be on PS4 instead...



Dodoo commented on Apologetic PlayStation Plus Extensions Being R...:

@Godsire- I thank them for being courteous in giving us our missed days back and because I have good manners. I mean what have you really lost? A few days playing online over Xmas, whoopie-doo! There are far more worse things going on in the world to get your knickers in a twist over such trivial things.

I've not read them but no doubt in the PS+ subscription small print it likely states that any outages caused by factors out of their control are subject to lack of reimbursement.



Dodoo commented on Review: Assassin's Creed Unity: Dead Kings (Pl...:

@ferrers405 Totally agree. AC2 was superb. The missions in Unity are so bland in comparison. Basically all they boil down to is "go here, kill this person" and that's it. No variation.

In AC2 we dropped bombs from DaVinci's flying machine, raced downhill on horse cart and the assassinations themselves were so much more varied like the one at the fancy dress party.

If Ubisoft could get the producers etc back from AC2 then the series would be in much better hands than those in charge now.

I think I'll give the Unity DLC and this years entry a miss as franchise fatigue has kicked in for me big time.



Dodoo commented on Oops, Sony Has Delayed the PS4's Impending Chi...:

That's not a good start!

From what I've heard about China though it sounds like Sony could be jumping through many hoops just to get PS4 out there. Also maybe even more so as they are a Japanese company...?



Dodoo commented on Feature: Why the PS4 Is Selling So Extraordina...:

Nice article Sammy though I also think the PS4 is doing well thanks to MS's missteps with X1.

For me it was more a case of MS alienating me with poor policies and a focus on TV rather then PS4 being more attractive (though the latter was also true).

By the time of E3 2013, MS had made so many blunders I was in no doubt I was getting a PS4 and Sony can mostly thank MS for my money!

Having said that another major advantage Sony has are it's first party games and that also helped my decision.



Dodoo commented on Nyko's Nifty PS4 Data Bank Will Solve Your Sto...:

As I still mostly buy retail AAA games my 1TB SSHD still has load of room left on it and I can't see I'll ever need to upgrade it again, or at least not for a long time...

This is no doubt a godsend though for people that are digital only...



Dodoo commented on Assassin's Creed Unity Resurrects Dead Kings f...:

Thought the main missions in Unity were pretty poor, especially when compared to AC 2 or one of the better entries. That makes me lacking in interest for this DLC even if it is free. I hope there's more variety than the main game.

While the devs made a beautiful looking playground in Paris, they forgot to include anything fun to play on...



Dodoo commented on Talking Point: Has PlayStation Now's Subscript...:

Though I quite like the idea of the service itself, I'm not sure I want another gaming subscription to pay and my main concern is Sony's network.

Since moving over from Xbox to PS the one thing that lets Sony down imo is their crappy online infrastructure.

The DDoS attacks took longer to recover than Xbox Live, online gaming is not as solid on PSN, their websites are slow as crap to load, security seems poor and the network seems to be at its limits already with different issues seemingly surfacing every week. Because of this I have little to no faith in them being able to deliver a top quality gaming streaming service at all.

I hope they prove me wrong as the concept is good but if they have DDoS attacks on their PS Now servers that'll be it - you will not be able to play any game, period.

Also I need to be convinced of latency issues and would like to see the service run in a lag-free way before I hand over any cash.

With this and Morpheus, I feel Sony are taking pretty big risks...



Dodoo commented on Poll: What Was Your Favourite PlayStation Game...:

Tough one as Transistor, LBP 3, CoD: AW and others are in my backlog waiting to be played...

Have to say I loved Child of Light. Was the best JRPG I played in a while and it's not even Japanese!

Infamous was fun and looked great, Watch Dogs I thought unfairly criticised (except the graphics downgrade), Driveclub was awesome eventually (why is it not on the list?!) and Shadow of Mordor also excellent...



Dodoo commented on Soapbox: Poor Communication Continues to Be PS...:

I agree. Sony make it worse on themselves during times like this. They already have irate consumers through a lack of working service and they add to that frustration by not saying anything about it!

Recently I have had a terrible experience using their "customer support" and overall I'd say their correspondence with their customers from support to top execs needs a huge improvement. As does their online structure.



Dodoo commented on Sony's Slowly Starting to Bring PSN Online Aft...:

Managed to connect this morning in the UK for the first time in a few days.

Though Sony did not asked to be attacked I feel they should add a few days worth of PS+ subscription to our expiry date as a goodwill gesture as it was also not our fault either.

Also I think they need to change their online structure so that single player games can be played without a connection to PSN.



Dodoo commented on Game of the Year: Best PS Vita Games of 2014:

Child of Light was the best game I played on Vita this year.

Surely if the game is on Vita, it should be included in the list? After all it is a Vita game even if it is on other formats?



Dodoo commented on Actually, PS4 Had the Most Great Games This Year:

Bless Nintendo for trying but I know which console I've played on the most and it wasn't my Wii U or 3DS!

It was even worse for me being a Nintendo fan as I don't even like the Smash series. Anyone like me that doesn't really had slim pickings on their platforms this year.

Can't wait for Zelda and Xenoblade next year but I think my PS4 will have more of my game time in 2015 too...



Dodoo commented on Far Cry 4 and Freedom Wars Scale Final EU Chri...:

I got FC4 cheaper on launch day than this "sale" price!

Really poor sale this has been compared to the last few years when Sony discounted loads of stuff.

Nearly tempted with the FC4 season pass but at £16 it's still too much for my liking. As it stands I bought absolutely nothing with the 12 days of Xmas promo...
