MadchesterManc commented on Soapbox: Please Protect Me from the Purgatory ...:

@get2sammyb 3 to 4 hours to download & install 6gb :o That sounds ridiculous. Are you using the Wifi by any chance? Since I networked my home properly, I've had my Ps3 hooked up via ethernet. Even tho it doesn't use all the bandwidth on offer from my connection, it still hits about 5/6MB & would have that 6GB done in about 30 minutes. I had to use the Wifi on the Ps3 for a couple of days not long ago and it's startling the difference to being wired. It's pretty much the only thing that irks me about the Ps3. Using mine a lot still, review duties & a purchase of the Killzone trilogy means it sees a lot of use. However, it does keep reminding me how intuitive the XMB is & how bangers the Ps4 dashboard is in comparison

Its good to see the new tracks will all be pretty much free which should benefit the game online. GG did the same with Killzone by giving the maps away free, and it helps to stop your community from being segregated

@Paranoimia complaints about optional DLC is always a tickler. Its not like they have to buy it to enjoy the game as the important aspect of new tracks looks to be included free of charge

MadchesterManc commented on Round Up: Destiny PS4 Reviews Shoot for the Moon:

With the servers only going live on Monday, any reviews pushed out these past couple of days are ones I won't really bother with and are just looking to net a lot of traffic by having reviews out before the mainstream websites. With how the online aspect is interwoven into the game, being able to play online for a day before pushing a review out us doing a disservice to your publication. It would be like reviewing the multiplayer aspect of Killzone: ShadowFall based on its offline botzone

MadchesterManc commented on Sorry! PlayStation Plus Will Play Host to Plen...:

You dont have to pay for PS+ to play everything online, unless the publisher of your favourite online game has deemed it to be needed. There's some AAA games out there like Fifa 14 & COD Ghosts, for example, that don't require PS+ to play online (flip over the case and take a look. The online section isn't yellow & doesn't state PS+ is needed) As Sony stated at E3 last year, its down to the publisher and whether they would like their game behind the PS+ paywall. Just sayin...

Awesome conference. Put both E3 & Gamescom to shame. So many awesome games coming to Ps4 & Vita in the east. As soon as I seen Senran Kagura for Ps4 I was doing cartwheels :D

@divinelite Croixleur Sigma was pretty darn good. It was one of the first review codes I'd been sent by Nyu Media. The combat system on it is so slick it puts most action games out there to shame.

If the mainstream gaming 'press' didn't stick the word on any game that looks half decent & isn't AAA before going on to hype the crap out of it, people wouldn't be annoyed by the word Indie. Like I've said numerous times - a game is a game, regardless of factors such as budget. It's about time the press stopped trying to pigeon hole everything & took a leaf out of the enthusiast sector by just reporting on these titles as games instead of indies

@Munkyknuts Aye it is really cheap. I picked up a 12GB super-slim from CEX for my brother at the weekend and it cost £95 (with a 1 year warranty) Looking at HDD while I was there and it would only cost £18 for a 250GB Toshiba one that looked as though it had been taken from a Ps3 anyway lol Only would cost £113 altogether, which is a nice entry price for the system :)

The amount of people here stating the PSN has been hacked have no idea what they are talking about. A DDos basically floods a server with bogus requests till the traffic overloads it. Nothing has been accessed. No information is at risk. If people are gonna complain, at least know what your complaining about.

@voodoo341 so you have a premium account on War Thunder or are you just trolling again? you can still go online during the maintenance. The PSN servers aren't taken down, Sony are just doing maintenance making the store & account management unavailable so you can still go online. If your unable to use your premium account on say War Thunder during this time, then it's a Gaijin server issue

@NicolaHayden Nice review :) its always good seeing Nep-Nep being given a fair crack of whip.

@DualWielding I thought Victory was a great release in the series, one of the best niche Jrpg's these past couple of years. The oddity with Rebirth getting high scores compared to Victory is that its basically Victory, but with the story (with a few changes) etc of the original Hyperdimension Neptunia :P If you enjoyed Victory, you'll love Rebirth tho. It plays as well but the writing is golden, especially for Neptune.

MadchesterManc commented on Gamescom 2014: Sorry, PS4 Firmware Update 2.00...:

I'll be literally bemused if people start whining about the limit. Its still a superb feature & there's no extra charge for the feature (aside from PS+) People have to do the same thing with 'free' calls to landlines whereby they have to hang up & call again to refresh the hour. They don't complain.

EDIT: I think part of the reason a limit is in place is to appease publishers/developers too. Im sure they wouldn't like the idea of potential sales going down the drain due to people doing a marathon sessions via this Share Play & completing their games that way.

MadchesterManc commented on Reaction: PS4's Variety Shines at Gamescom 201...:

I thought Sony's Gamescom was better than E3. People seem to forget that Gamescom is for the smaller studios to show what they're doing, so the fact there wasn't any megaton announcements is par the course for the event. Instead we got a look at a lot of interesting titles, which is why I watch Gamescom, instead of the usual suspects being rolled out (the mistake Microsoft made at the event) and turning it into an E3 lite. Sony may have lacked a show stopperduring the show, but if what Im reading regarding Sony being the publisher on the game - then this new SIlent Hill potentialy being an exclusive is as close as it gets to a bomb at Gamescom

MadchesterManc commented on Poll: What Did You Think of the Sony PlayStati...:

@Scollurio Some people were expecting an E3 V2.0 & what we got was a Gamescom conference instead. Sony tend to focus on the smaller offerings at Gamescom which meant much disappointment for the blockbuster/AAA lovers. Roll on TGS so we can see what developers in the east are getting up to on Ps4

MadchesterManc commented on Poll: What Did You Think of the Sony PlayStati...:

@MoleZandor That's the way things are on Pushsquare these days. Takes a little getting used to but you'll eventually be able to filter through most of the bile.

I thought it was decent. As expected to be honest. Quite a few interesting games to keep an eye on going forward. Gamescom has always been the place Sony showcase their smaller offerings, so I'm not sure why people were expecting E3 levels of showmanship & announcements. TGS is just around the corner, hopefully we get some Hyperdimension Neptunia V II Ps4 gameplay footage there...

Really looking forward to both titles. Burst on the 3DS was a fantastic side-scroller, so I fully expect Tamsoft to have brought the goods for Shinovi Versus. Bon Appetit should be great on the go too with it being a rhythm game :) Shame they're digital only, but Im just glad to see them on our shores.

MadchesterManc commented on Sony Sued $5 Million Over PS4 Shooter Killzone...:

Amusingly, for something to be designated as '1080p' it only needs to have 1080 as it's horizontal resolution while it's vertical resolution can be anything. Rendering every third frame as 960x1080 as Shadow Fall does, is still 1080p. If the person starting up this lawsuit had looked into HD standards beforehand, they wouldn't be looking like a goyt right now.

No mention of the new Zombie sisters, Anzu & Sayaka, that are glimpsed in this new trailer? Honestly the most intruiging aspect of this latest release so far with how it all might fit together when you consider that you spend about 95% of your time in the series slashing up zombies. Will they be friends? foes? are they playable? Who knows. Should be interesting finding out

People still going on about this? Jeez :| I had made the choice to not put any of my cards on my account, so I wasn't too bothered when it happened and the digital copies of Infamous & Wipeout HD Fury with a month of PS+ seemed fair enough for me at the the time. Didn't they even take out some kind of insurance package for people who may have had their card accounts compromised? I dont understand why Sony should have to give more

This 'darling' status ND has in the industry never ceases to amaze me. It's like they've entered the realms of godlike recently with this 1080p60 talk. Shame that spec doesn't guarantee a great game now eh, but then with all the hot air blowing around from outlets recently you'd think it was all that mattered

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

The Xbox One is getting 3D Bluray playback!? Dafuq you playin at Sony? :| Its one aspect that baffles me. Ps4 plays Blurays, it has 3D games. So why does my Ps4 still not play 3D Blurays? I honestly cant believe how long I've been waiting for this one singular aspect to be added. None of this other stuff people mention interests me or has become an annoyance. Sony are starting to take the biscuit a little with their firmware updates though. My Ps3 is getting on a bit too so it would be nice to retire some of its duties.

MadchesterManc commented on PS4 Exclusive Omega Quintet Fuses Idol Simulat...:

No surprise to see Compile Heart bringing the goods early in the Ps4's cycle. Looking forward to this, although I may import instead of waiting on a localisation. My Ps4 needs some Moe, and fast, as I hear it occasionally sobbing due to all the otaku love going to its older sibling. We have Natural Doctrine in a few months time, but that looks nowhere near as interesting as this does.
