I really couldn't care less even tho I had ran into the issue a few months ago. If spending a couple of minutes deleting a few greedy saves from the cloud storage is too much for you, you have issues. 1GB is enough. I'd prefer to have the choice of what to be uploaded like I've always done with important Vita & Ps3 saves, instead of the Ps4 doing all saves automatically. That's the only issue with it really.



MadchesterManc commented on Soapbox: We Need More New Game Plus:

New game plus is a lacklustre incentive to play through a game again. If the game was truly great in the first place, you wouldn't need NG+ to entice you into another playthrough. I think Yakuza 3 is the only game that I've made use of NG+ on to help mop up side quests on a second playthrough. To be honest it's such a good game I would have started a new session even if the plus wasn't there anyway.



MadchesterManc commented on Review: Battlefield Hardline (PlayStation 4):

The Beta was enough for me to decide not to buy the game yet, I'll be waiting till drops in price. As a long time vet to the series, I found most of the small changes detrimental to the series gameplay. The cops & robbers premise wasn't really enticing either. EA should just get DICE to do another Battlefield 1942 (1943 wasnt too bad) once they've finished with Battlefront.

@Flurpsel It's crazy how the lack of destruction hasn't been pointed out a lot more. I dont even remember there being any at all during the Beta



MadchesterManc commented on Soapbox: Has It Just Been a Bad Week for Games...:

I dunno, it sounds a bit like your saying indie games are the saviour of gaming at a few points in the article lol honestly, the rife corruption & generic releases of late don't exactly paint that part of the industry in the same light as when it seemed to emerge on consoles a while back

I think people are just looking into all this too much. People are hired & fired every day, theres redundancies & employment drives all the time in business. Just because it happens at a development studio instead of a KFC doesn't make the situation different



MadchesterManc commented on First Impressions: Bringing the Beat Back with...:

To be honest, I don't like the look of the backgrounds for the stages. The original Amplitude had some fantastic style to its backgrounds whilst these for the new release just look a bit mundane in the screenshots

Anyone else play Frequency, the precursor to Amplitude? Haven't seen anyone mention it at all yet.



MadchesterManc commented on Gal Gun: Double Peace for PS4, Vita Will Confu...:

Hopefully they add a little more variety to the game this time. The original was decent with its multiple girls & endings, but got a little too repetitive quickly. I reckon this won't get a release in the west, although I did think the same thing for Onechanbara Z2, so I may have to import again



MadchesterManc commented on Reaction: Uncharted 4's Delay Is a Blow, But E...:

@Gamer83 Bandai Namco recently filed a trademark for Rage Burst in the EU, so a localisation of that could be on the cards. I'm guessing Sega are gonna wait on 5 & see how well that does before announcing anything for Zero. Zero has more of a chance than Ishin of being localised at least



MadchesterManc commented on Feature: 11 Games We Want to Play with PS4's V...:

@splat I think it has the potential to be the next stage of gaming going forward. The only thing holding it back is that I don't think current games would work well with VR. The tech is going to require some radical new ideas to transpose the likes of Elder Scrolls etc into VR properly, whilst some genres like racing games & flight sims will be ridiculously easy. Sure VR could fall flat on its face, but there's genuine potential to innovate in numerous way with new experiences for an industry that's stagnated.



MadchesterManc commented on Sony's Beta Testing PS4 Firmware Update 2.50 Now:

I don't care about the Suspend/Resume feature to be honest. The PSTV does it and I haven't even used it on that in the few months I've had it. The Saturn & Dreamcast I have plugged into my TV beside the Ps4 both function perfectly fine without the feature too. Yeah, not really fussed myself. Since 3D bluray playback was added I haven't really been much bothered about firmware updates
