get2sammyb commented on Psyonix Targets the Top of the Rocket League:

I have to say, I hope this game's coming to the PS4. I absolutely adored the original, and it seems so ridiculously well suited to all of the share functions built into the next-gen machine. Honestly, the original is an underrated gem.



get2sammyb commented on Talking Point: Do You Ever Stump Up for Season...:

I also got the Rockstar Pass for L.A. Noire, and I enjoyed that. I think it was mostly because it was a novelty, though. The only other ones I've bought are for Telltale Games, and I got the Resogun one. I don't think they ever announced what you'd get for the latter, so I'm starting to regret that a bit. I do love the game, though, so I'm sort of assuming it will be good.



get2sammyb commented on Review: DriveClub (PlayStation 4):

@Bad-MuthaAdebis I think the AI is actually good, it just doesn't suit the game. I mean, they're really aggressive, and in another racer, that would be a good thing - the problem here is that the title wants you play cleanly, and penalises you for manoeuvres that they’ll make.



get2sammyb commented on Review: Samurai Warriors 4 (PlayStation 4):

@HeroOfCybertron There'll be a separate Vita review. I know it's frustrating, but we just don't have the bandwidth to cover the same games on PS3 as well. More to the point, that's kind of unprecedented - even on bigger websites.

Much of the content in @ShogunRok's review — about the combat, gameplay, structure, story, etc — will all apply to the PS3 version. Obviously, the only thing we can't really comment on is how it looks, but it's safe to assume that it's the same, without the graphical bells and whistles.



get2sammyb commented on Interview: Will Tom Clancy's The Division Deli...:

They do say you can play the single player campaign on your own in the interview:

How much can you say about the game’s structure? For example, is there a single player campaign in there?

Within this huge open world, there’s a storyline that you can follow – like, a main story that you can obviously complete. But then there is so much development outside of that: there’s the character development, the skills... So, you can do a lot of other things. But, you can decide if you want to do it alone, or with friends, or with people that you meet. The game is better with more people, but, yes, if you don’t want to, you don’t have to. You can complete the full game without playing with anyone else.

I didn't actually ask whether it's online only. Obviously that's a big part of the game, but are you guys sure it requires an Internet connection?



get2sammyb commented on Review: F1 2014 (PlayStation 3):

@General_Spiller I don't know anything for sure, but I think everyone's hoping/assuming that Codemasters is putting all of its resources into the next-gen version, which is why this one seems a bit undercooked. It makes sense.

EDIT: Thinking about it, this reminds me of when Codemasters first got the F1 license. Don't know if anyone remembers, but they put out a PSP/Wii game while they worked on the PS3/360 versions. My guess (again, I don't know anything for sure) is that they're probably obligated as part of the license to release a game every year, which is why they're putting this out as a stop gap between the proper next-gen version.



get2sammyb commented on Review: F1 2014 (PlayStation 3):

Great review, Gaz. This seems very much like a last-minute cash grab. Codemasters clearly felt that it could make a quick buck from the excitement of the end of the current season, before releasing the proper sequel next year. A bit of a shame, really. I wonder if they're contractually obliged to release a title every year?



get2sammyb commented on This Upcoming PS4 Bundle Sure Has a Grasp on M...:

@Bad-MuthaAdebis I'm assuming £349.99 would be the RRP, which would give retailers the license to drop it lower. I'm sure you'd see this selling for £329.99 on Amazon, etc. Remember: the PS4 standalone's RRP is technically still £349.99, but retailers have pushed it way lower in recent weeks.



get2sammyb commented on What Does PS4 Firmware Update 2.00 Look Like?:

@Sadodi It's hard to describe, but I'll try. Imagine you're sitting on a sofa with your buddy, and you take it in turns playing a single player game or connect an extra controller for two player titles. Share Play is that - but you don't have to be sitting on the same sofa.



get2sammyb commented on When Will DriveClub: PS Plus Edition Release o...:

@WARDIE Yeah, it's definitely possible. I don't think they'll put it up until they're 100 per cent confident they can cope with the load, but do believe them when they say it'll appear as soon as it's ready. The game's definitely improving now, so they're certainly on the right track. I guess they've just got to make sure that the influx of new players doesn't break everything again.



get2sammyb commented on Feature: What's New in PS4 Firmware Update 2.00?:

@SteveButler2210 My understanding is that you can Share Play for as long as you like, you just have to manually re-establish the connection every 60 minutes. This basically stops people from abusing the feature, as otherwise you could buy a game, and let your mate play it all day while you head out to work or something. This way, it requires two active participants. Last I heard, you could Share Play as much as you want, though.
