Reverend_Skeeve commented on EA Says It's Committed to the Titanfall Franchise:

I agree with the release window probably having hurt the game's sales quite a bit. Shame, really, because I haven't had that much fun with a game (both sp and mp) in a long time.

Let's hope that the positive reviews and word of mouth will get Titanfall the audience it deserves eventually, because I'd love to play more games in this lore and universe.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Live Streaming Gets a Lot of Love on PS4 Pro:

@BLP_Software Sorry, but not really a constructive comment. The article even states that streaming via PC was and is a viable option. But for those of us who don't have a PC capable of running a stream or shy away from the extra cost, I think this added option in the Pro is a nice touch.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Guide: The Best 4K UHD HDR TVs for PS4 Pro in ...:

@get2sammyb Thanks for the article, sir! Although it will most probably be outdated by the time I can afford a Pro and a 4K TV, I appreciate all the hard work the Pushsquare team pour into the site.

You guys have been getting some flak, lately, for supposedly posting click bait and such, but I've been with the site since shortly before the announcement of the PS4 and for me, it remains the best, fairest and most grounded source for everything PlayStation.

So, thanks to all of you for your amazing work and keep 'em coming!



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Video: Having a Ball with Titanfall 2 on PS4:

@themcnoisy I am not completely sure about cosmetic stuff in the game, like new decals and customization for the pilots, titans and weapons in the game, so some of those may be sold in the future (although there's loads of those in the game that can be unlocked just by playing the game), but Respawn has confirmed several times that there will definitely be no season pass and that all future maps, game modes and additional weapons for mp will be free for everybody to not divide the community.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Round Up: Titanfall 2 PS4 Reviews Fall from th...:

@DoublezZ01 Agreed, man! I've played the hell out of the tech test on both weekends, even though I have a backlog up to the moon, but I couldn't help but to come back to Titanfall to play just one more match.

And the only thing I didn't like about the tech test was knowing that it would be over so soon. I don't know, something just clicked for me with this game. Controls were just spot on and having a giant mech guarding my back while I took to the battlefield was just awesome. I'm sure I'll play this for a long time.

Add me on PSN, if you like: Reverend_Skeeve



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Round Up: Titanfall 2 PS4 Reviews Fall from th...:

For me personally, this is one of my most anticipated games in 2016 and this generation in general. Absolutely loved the tech test, even though I'm normally not that much into the mp part of a game, but I haven't had that much fun in mp since MW 1 and 2. Figures, since those games and TF 2 are basically made by most of the same guys.

On top of that, I somehow get a late-80s-buddy-movie vibe from what I have seen from the campaign. Seems right up my alley.

Thursday night, 00:00 can't come soon enough!



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Review: XCOM 2 (PS4):

Fantastic game. Sometimes, the difficulty is crushing, but still a very rewarding game. Like for @ElkinFencer10 the technical issues never hampered the experience for me, although I do hope for a patch.

@Lonejester In many aspects, it's much like the first game. The soldier classes are a bit more streamlined. Also, weapon research now works in the way that you research plasma rifles, for example, and they're then available for the whole squad. You don't have to buy them individually after researching them, anymore.

Biggest difference is that you don't have a stationery base anymore. You are basically fighting a guerrilla war against overwhelming odds. Your base now is a giant captured alien aircraft carrier which enables you to fly all over the globe, trying to first contact and then build up a resistance movement, which gives you more resources and eventually different boni, like the continental boni from the first game.

Also, many missions have a set number of turns before they're automatically lost, forcing you to adept your tactics, basically having to avoid the good ol' "overwatch creeping".



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Review: Destiny (PlayStation 4):

@Bliquid Agreed! While there may be games out there that may have better graphics from a pure technical standpoint (texture detail, polygons, shaders and the like), the art direction and design of Destiny is gorgeous, me thinks.

Especially some of the later locations and especially the moment when you can combine your armor with shaders that change its color (unlocks at level 20). Just droolworthy.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Hijacks the Next-Gen on...:

This indeed looks gorgeous. But still, GTA games tend to bore me about a third or so into the campaign. The worlds are all wonderfully crafted for their respective time, but the gameplay itself tends to get boring and repetitive for me. It's basically the same since GTA 3.

Still, I will give V a try for sure, even if it's just for soaking in the world...but not at launch, most probably.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Reaction: Destiny's PS4 Launch Proves PSN Isn'...:

As someone who was very...vocal about the recent and frequent PSN-outages and maintenance-breaks, I must give credit where credit is due. Sony and the PSN-servers indeed handled the Destiny launch superb and barely with a glitch. Consider me impressed.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Poll: What Are Your First Impressions of Desti...:

@Bad-MuthaAdebi Aw man, that sucks. I fixed my disk-problem. Out of desperation, I put my PS4 back to the out of the box-factory setting and reinitialized it. There's a menu for that in the system settings menu. Wiped the HDD and all and every data and put the disk back in after that and suddenly it got recognized properly like it's supposed to. I tried the "quick wipe" option, btw. Don't know why it works suddenly, but whatever.

Don't know if that would solve your problem, but for me it worked.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Poll: What Are Your First Impressions of Desti...:

So I seem to have this problem: I installed the standard version of Destiny on my PS4 and the game doesn't show in the PS4s main menu or the library section with all my other downloaded or installed games. What I mean there's nothing. No icon to click, no entry no hint or clue that the disk is even entered. Also, when I go to the systems setting menu and access "System storage management" or what's it called, where I can access a graph of the space taken up on my HDD and check on and delete installed games and apps, there's no entry for Destiny at all. Again, it's like the game doesn't exist.

It DID install, though. After I popped in the disk, the PS4 started installing AND downloaded the day-1-patch. By clicking the intalled patch-symbol under Notifications--->Downloads I was able to start the game. Also, when I click on the "Player X played Destiny Digital Guardian Edition" news in the "What's new"-newsfeed, I'm also able to start the game.

After I entered my Gamestop DLC-code for the season pass, the game DID show up in my library, but when I click on it, the button that would normaly say "Start" says "Buy in store". I can start it via the library when I go on "Overview" and then click "Play Destiny now", but I'd love to have the game showing up in my normal Dashboard and avoid those work-arounds, but at least I can play it.

Anyone else have this problem or any idea how to fix this? Appreciate it, guys! And enjoy the game!



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Not Even Sony Understands Why the PS4 Is Selli...:

@Doodoo This. Only that I didn't buy a PS3. I think a huge part of PS4 owners are alienated, former MS-gamers. MS has been losing focus during the later years of the 360, managed to alienate even more during the X1s reveal and sealed the mess-up during E3 with their original DRM- and Kinect-policies, so I got me a PS4, after owning the PS1 and 2 and loving them. That the PS4 was also cheaper and the more powerful hardware didn't hurt either, of course.

But I think Sony has to be careful. They've been riding on a huge wave of good-will that is in danger of crashing. The 1st party offerings up until now are not as good as many would like them to be and many, me included, didn't buy a 400,- € system for indy games. It's nice to have them, sure, but I want shiny, spectacular AAA-experiences that weren't possible on last-gen hardware. I found enough to keep me entertained until now and with Diablo 3 and Destiny, I'm sure I'll be good for this year until CoD AW comes around or GTA V, but Sony has to step up their game and at least stop to play their cards so close to the chest. Give us some more reasons why we spent 400,- bucks on a system.

Also, PSN is laughable when you compare it to Xbox live. It's true that PS+ is the better value on paper, but PSN either breaks down or is down for maintenance every month or so, which is unacceptable when you pay for a premium service and it's even obligatory for online gaming on PS4. In the online department, MS mops the floor with Sony.

Still, I love my PS4 and am very happy with my purchase. And I'm sure that I'll love 2015, games-wise.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Gamescom 2014: Sony Refuses to Rehash Previous...:

Uncharted 1-3 and the Mass Effect trilogy including all and every DLC, please. I just played the UC games a little bit each on a friends PS3 and loved them and Mass Effect is one of my most beloved ips ever. In my opinion one of the very best new and original ips ever, actually, and since I never got around to play ME 3, I'd love to dive into those games again and finish the story ark before 4 releases.

@Scollurio I'm sure you'd love 'em.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Gamescom 2014: Blimey, Hideo Kojima is Making ...:

@Gmork___ Absolutely! I "only" use a very good AKG stereo headset at the moment, but it's already amazing. 'specially with games like P.T., where the heavy breathing at the "Look behind you!"-part is always coming from a direction you are not looking in!

I haven't completed the demo yet, but after a 2 day break, I feel like I can give it a new try...maybe... And I know exactly what you mean: although I'm sure I'd love every second of it, I'm honestly not sure if I could take an entire game of this intensity...but I'm sure willing to find out!

How do you like the Pulse, btw? I'll be getting a new headset for gaming with my PS4 around Christmas and the Pulse is one of the headsets I have my eyes on.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Gamescom 2014: Blimey, Hideo Kojima is Making ...:

WHAT?! Never have I been closer to be banned from this side, because I was very tempted to unleash a string of profanities in the comments to express my joy!

Wow, this is insane! I played the P.T. demo yesterday and it's brilliant! Such creepy atmosphere and amazing graphics. For me personally, never before has a game come closer to photo-realistic graphics. On first glance, you could think you'd watch a movie. I was mesmerized!

And now I read it's a new Silent Hill? by Kojima?! And del Torro?! Are you effin' kidding me?! This is *babbles gibberish

Whoa...I'm off, taking a shower!



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Unsurprisingly, Metal Gear Solid Still Sells B...:

@Diddy_kong Just out of curiosity: why is it a problem for you that MGS isn't exclusive anymore? It's not that it's a less excellent game for also being available on Xbox?

But indeed, the sweet memories of MGS on PS1...I was blown away by the game back then. Still has a special place in my heart until today.

And Konami might sell one more MGS V that it's for sale one the PSN store for 15,- €, I'm heavily tempted.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on That Rainbow PS4 Raised a Truckload of Money f...:

@Tasuki I accept your decision, of course, but I must say I'm disappointed in it. Even if I don't agree with the opinion @ThreadShadow stated in his post, I agree with him in that this article in general goes into the political decision, so I would think a political discussion about the topic in the comment section of said article would only be proper. Plus, I feel that Pushsquare as a community would benefit from and can endure such a discussion.

But hey, seems I was wrong.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Rumour: Sony Employee Allegedly Pegs PS4 DLNA ...:

Hopefully it comes at all. It's indeed rather ridiculous that the PS4 is lacking features the PS3 had for years...and features that were appreciated by the fans, that is. There has been speculation that Sony didn't include DNLA and mp3 playback because they wanted to push their own video- and music streaming services. I wouldn't think it beyond them, to be honest...that they claim they were "surprised" by the uproar when those features were missing is hard to believe for me...I call a little bs on that.

And about the resume feature: that one is also long overdue...when they presented the PS4 in Feb. 2013, they somewhat implied that this feature would be included from the PS4 is about 9 month old and it's nowhere to be seen.

I'm not missing the resume feature too much myself, because I tend to power down my PS4 completely when I not use it, because it soaks up too much juice in stand by, but they should get their act together.

@Sonicfan11589 basically, it means streaming video and music files inside your home network. If you have videos and music saved on your PC, you can create some kind of server and every DLNA-able device inside your network (like the PS3) can then play back those videos and music files.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Journey to Be Playable on PS4 at GamesCom 2014...:

@voodoo341 Don't want to speculate about Tasukis financial situation, but some people just want (or can) afford one console with the games for being one of those who just have the PS4. And as @Enobmah_Shards said, nobody forces you to buy the game again, should it not be cross-buy. It's just easy money for the developer and also for Sony, who isn't in the healthiest situation, financially, so...

@Tasuki I'm one of those former Xbox 360 owners who didn't have a PS3 but is a happy PS4 owner now. So I'm quite happy with remakes like Journey and of course The Last of Us.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Feature: The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Five: W...:

@Davros79 You can only upgrade "uncommon" loot (armor and weapons), highlighted in green, vs. common loot that's white or gray. I'd guess the ability to upgrade some loot makes it special/uncommon, so you can just upgrade the uncommon loot.

As for the 60+ auto'll have to find an uncommon one with an attack value of 57. The last upgrade for those you can unlock raises the attack to 62. At least those are the most powerful ones I found until now. At least the most powerful level 8 guns.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Feature: What Does Your Guardian Look Like in ...:

@Generik Good decision, I daresay! Love my PS4, and by now there's enough nice games to play if you jump in in September. And I have a feeling Destiny will be huge, both in matters of success and also game size. And it's already insanely polished for a beta. I have a feeling that this will be one of my most loved games of all time, so the exclusive content is more than welcome. 'specially the strike missions seem to be lots of fun with two buddies or so. And as I said, I love the white PS4. Since it's also coming out in general at the end of the year, should I ever need to buy another PS4 because my first one dies or such, I'd get a white one as well...if there isn't an even nicer one/limited one out I'd want more until then, that is...



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Naughty Dog Wants All of Its PS4 Titles to Run...:

Wow. Talking about putting yourself under pressure, right? I can hardly believe that Uncharted 4 will have the ingame graphics shown in the gorgeous trailer, even less in 1080p at 60fps, but surprise me, please!

And as you said, if anyone can pull it off, then it's dem dogs. They made the PS3 shine for sure.

Edit: And about that UC collection for PS4: Yes, please! As someone who didn't/doesn't own a PS3 and just played parts of the first three games at friends places (and loved 'em), I'd be all over this in a heartbeat!



Reverend_Skeeve commented on PS4 Firmware Update Details Right Around the C...:

Agree with all of the above, basically. I want those missing features, plz. Also, the Share button doesn't work all the time for me, or more specifically, the video grabbing. Sometimes when I press share, the PS4 doesn't grab a video. Sucks. Also, since the last update or so, some Blu-Ray movies that used to work just fine don't work anymore. Wanted to see District 9 recently and after selecting "start movie" from its title screen, the disk freezes.

YouTube app would be appreciated, but as @FullbringIchigo says, the work-around with the browser works just fine for me.



Reverend_Skeeve commented on Feature: What Does Your Guardian Look Like in ...:

@Generik ...but oh so sweet when you finally get it, then! Trust me, you're in for a treat. The game is fantastic in the beta already and I think the white PS4 looks so beautiful...if I didn't have my launch-PS4 already, I'd totally get that bundle as well! Perfect opportunity to get on board!
