@DominicanGlory @Neolit I considered this when deciding to write the article, too - but I think sometimes people just need to be shown up.

Hopefully a few of the people who overreacted will think about what they said now they've been humiliated and won't do it again.

Of course, there'll always be some who simply don't care.



get2sammyb commented on Just How Bad Is Fallout 4: Far Harbor on PS4?:

@Grawlog The thing is, the game is even poorly optimised for PC.

Game development is very difficult, and we'd never obliterate a game for minor hiccups. But this is an unacceptable level of performance from Bethesda. And they keep getting away with it.

I said it in another thread, but Skyrim has a Metacritic score of 92 on the PS3. The game fundamentally didn't work for over a year!

I quite liked Sean's post on the PlayStation Blog. Seemed very honest - they seem to know expectations are sky high, and they're not shying away from that.

While it's disappointing, I'm glad they're taking the extra time!



get2sammyb commented on New The Last Guardian PS4 Footage Will Give Yo...:

@clvr Without meaning to be "that" guy, the barren landscape is pretty much the point. Also, that's a game that really starts to shine in the latter half, when you realise its "message".

God, I sound so pretentious. Nah, but you're quite right, the controls aren't great in 2016. I think that's true of a lot of PS2 games, sadly.

Well, look on the positive side, at least Sean Murray gets to pop up at another E3 press conference.


"Erm. Wow. Hi everyone. Um. So... I can't believe I'm doing this. Anyway, I'm Sean Murray and I wanted to show you this crazy game we're making..."

@Dodoo I think they're both acting independently to be honest with you. According to the rumours, Sony's revision will be out a year earlier than Microsoft's, so I don't think anyone's copied anyone really. I think they're both just working to their own timescales.



get2sammyb commented on Review: Downwell (PS4):

@xxAcesHighxx Ah-hah - I thought that just showed you the controls, I didn't realise you could toggle between them. Quite right. However, to answer @Quintumply's original question, I still don't think there are enough options there. You can set boots to L, for example, but it's still not a great scheme for vertical mode IMO.

How do you have it set up Aces?



get2sammyb commented on Review: Downwell (PS4):

@xxAcesHighxx See, I poked around for about 15 minutes for customised controls and genuinely couldn't find anything. I even looked at the Vita manual. How do you customise the controls? I'll add an amendment to the review once I figure this out. Clearly I'm missing something.



get2sammyb commented on Review: Downwell (PS4):

@Quintumply If you hold the Vita vertically, then you can move left and right using the d-pad at the bottom, but you have to use your other hand to hold the top of the handheld and hit the X button to jump/fire. Not very comfortable.
