rastamadeus commented on Poll: Which PS4 PlayStation Plus Freebie Will ...:

All three just look and sound naff so none of them is my vote.

@ToOGoodOfAPlaya said it before and I'll say it again, the people complaining about the complainers is just ludicrous. Before anyone has said 'eurgh, indies' (which no-one has at all) we have people complaining about them saying it. As you said, you're allowed to not like a game. It's like saying you enjoy music and then someone branding you a liar if you don't like the exact same songs and bands they do.

rastamadeus commented on Sony Wants You to Pick Your Next PS4 PlayStati...:

Don't get how this is good news. It's not like people really wanting one of the games over the others won't rig it and constantly vote, or find some way of disrupting it. Effectively we now have the idiots of the masses deciding what we play rather than Sony. Huge news.

It won't last anyway, be gone in a couple of months just like when Sony asked people to mark the Plus choices and they quickly took them away when they didn't like what they were told.

@Tasuki and what will the people who complain about the complainers have to do with their lives? They far outnumber the complainers, here in particular. Criticise Plus and you're effectively telling them you've slept with their mum and filmed it the way people overreact. Some people like things others don't and are allowed to say so without it meaning they are somehow anti-Sony scum. Why is that so hard for a lot of people (not having a go at you here by the way) to understand that?

rastamadeus commented on Feature: What Are August 2015's Free PlayStati...:

@get2sammyb It's not a question of better, it's the names. People moan about there being no AAA games on Plus (there never has been, it's been very very rare AA at best) and people moan about the moaners. GWG does seem to be getting much more bigger names than Plus though. Has been happening for a while now. Doesn't mean they're better games but a large amount of Plus users are gamers who want the big names, not indies. They're not right nor wrong to want that and, at the moment, GWG has gone ahead in that aspect. As I said in my first comment, a good game is a good game. But is Casual Joe going to want Rocket League (no matter how good it may be) or an Assassin's Creed? Sound Shapes or MGS: Ground Zero?

With both companies now offering 'free' games with a subscription Sony need to be much more aggressive and have at least one 'shit the bed that's good' title, something they haven't done on Plus since early last year with DMC and Borderlands 2 in January 2014 and Bioshock Infinite with Metro in March 2014 (I think). They're not doing it because there's not the games on PS4 - Sleeping Dogs, Last Of Us, inFAMOUS, Killzone could all be on Plus - but because they now have you anyway. Plus is a necessity if you want to game online and Sony don't have to court you into getting it with B-AA games, they'll just throw the odd B or A at you as a scrap. It's no coincidence that since PS4 arrived the quality has dropped. But with Microsoft now doing their version and consumers on the fence seeing both 'give away' games Sony need to be doing much better. Not resting on their laurels, something they seem to have been doing since the moment PS4 got this huge lead over a year and a half ago.

People, certain people, will say I'm moaning but as someone who has become utterly disillusioned with gaming I'm seeing it from an outsiders view looking in. Also I've wanted out of Plus for a long while as it's just not worth the £40 for me as I've said before. I'm only still on it as Sony kindly ignored me not letting them renew the subscription charge and doing it again anyway.

As for Vita, it should have been stopped a year ago. There's only, what, five 'big' games to have not come on it. LBP, Killzone and Freedom Wars won't ever appear as Sony don't seem to want to give their games away while Tearaway is another, especially with the PS4 version around the corner. That leaves Persona 4 Golden - the one defining must own game on Vita. That will never be given away. So why keep the service? Just sack it off.

On PS3 it will last til Christmas, stopping either shortly before or afterwards.

rastamadeus commented on Feature: What Are August 2015's Free PlayStati...:

Pretty sure Sound Shapes has already been given away free with Plus. It's the best game on Vita and top three on PS4 (easily). Made up it will get more exposure and hopefully a sequel one day.

The rest? No thanks. Again, I'm sure Limbo has been given away free on one of the other two consoles.

Am I the only person who think Sony are having trouble convincing companies to give away 'bigger' games? Maybe they find the Microsoft equivilant more appeasing (financially) than Plus? Can't be a coincidence that in the last year they've had the much better 'bigger' named games. Personally I couldn't give a toss if it's big, retail, indie or a classic oldie - a good game is a good game. Sound Shapes apart though, I honestly can't remember the last good Plus game. Maybe inFAMOUS First Light in January.

rastamadeus commented on Talking Point: What August PlayStation Plus Fr...:

PvZ: Garden Warfare is on sale this week so wouldn't rule out that being included on PS4 and/or PS3. My copy of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is broke so I'll be greedy and ask for that. Would allow Sony to give some Persona away while not making it the main game. They'll never release that on PS+ as it's the only must have on Vita. Although I imagine if P4A does come it will be in a few months as Dancing All Night gets nearer release. Would be a canny move by Atlus. Unfortunately they're owned by Sega who seem allergic to good ideas.

@Johnnycide Only 60%? I'd say more like 75%.

rastamadeus commented on Sony Brings Out PS4's Big Guns for Summer Comm...:

By sceptics you mean realists, yes? Simple matter of fact is for the second Christmas in a row PS4 is going in with nothing to say 'I'm your console'. It's instead going in say 'LOOK AT THESE GAMES that are also on Xbox and half on your PS3 too'. I'm not a fan of Sony's own studios but they have titles that sell, they have titles in progress and they need them to actually step up and deliver something for Christmas. It is the biggest sales period of the year after all. Sony can't rely on the incompetence of Microsoft and Nintendo to carry on, giving them a free ride. It's not a statement of intent in any way, it's a statement of 'that'll do, we've already won' and sooner or later it's going to come back and haunt them.

rastamadeus commented on This Is What FIFA 16 Brings to the Beautiful Game:

@arnoldlayne83 Online FIFA is just stupid. I went on a few times to see if the trophies would be possible to get... nope. Every single person just wants to get the ball and run at the opposition to score. Then they lose it and a player on the other side does the same.

The one time I managed to find a few people who wanted to actually play football we passed the opposition to death, contained them and won easily. Heavily too. Felt like a proper football game then. Never found out who they were and every game since has been the usual pile of crap.

rastamadeus commented on This Is What FIFA 16 Brings to the Beautiful Game:

@themcnoisy Have they completely remade PES from scratch since PES 2014? That one was given away with PS+ and it was, without doubt, the worst football game I've ever played. Slow, boring, terrible graphics (I don't care about visuals but it looked like an early PS2 game), no atmosphere. Dreadful commentary repeating the same three phrases, absurdly easy difficulty... I honestly thought they'd given away the wrong game. Did they just start again on PS4?

I'd love a title to take on FIFA as it still just doesn't feel right to me. I think that it's the way, at the end of the day, you really aren't in control of anything that happens in the game, no matter what you're told, everything is controlled by the computer. It's always felt more like a game to me FIFA, while ISS and then the first few Pro Evo's felt like football.

rastamadeus commented on Japanese Sales Charts: PlayStation's Road to N...:

Something needs to change in Japan. It's amazing when you compare what is happening here in Europe and America with this gen. Going forward though I can honestly see this (including NX if it's a home console) being the last generation the country has. The PS4 itself launched in Japan after America/Europe and that's going to happen with PS5/next Xbox/next Nintendo after NX. They don't care anymore. Microsoft won't bother there much longer, Nintendo will survive thanks to their handhelds - the 3DS is still well behind the DS thanks to phones/tablets yet still sells like hotcakes - and Sony? I can see them being a small presence, but treating the region, their home region, as an afterthought. If they could crack the handheld market they could really compete with Nintendo in that section of gaming but they've tried twice now and both times they haven't actually understood the market (despite the small but dedicated love the consoles have outside Japan) and won't go a third time.

@Kayoss Difference is the PS4 is just over/under eighteen months old there and the numbers are relatively consistent week after week. They may go up when a big game comes out but then they drop again. The 3DS has been out over four years, each version of the machine is counted separately, and going from how many have sold up until New Year's Day 2015 there have been 160.71m - the Japan population is around 126,999,808 (as of July 2014). That is basically like saying every person in Japan has one, nearly a third has two. And it's still selling. PS4 being second behind 3DS is good for Sony when you take in how the country is falling out of love with console gaming. But it's good in a similar way to finding 50p on the floor when you've lost £100. Microsoft though is like being robbed, beaten up, stripped and then being thrown a penny.

rastamadeus commented on PlayStation Pays Its Respects to Nintendo's Sa...:

@kensredemption All but a tiny minority seem to have put aside console loyalty and just paid tribute to someone very important. Makes you think the gaming community really isn't as bad as it makes itself out to be at times. The few people who have tried to make a snarky comment have collectively been ignored and got bored - seeing as they haven't had the attention they craved - and the ones you'd expect to say something have thankfully stayed away (on all sites). A death can really bring people together, as it's shown today.

@Gamer83 The pay cut is just everything you need to know about him, isn't it? Throughly classy and just a very nice man.

Lovely little Eurogamer-made video https://youtu.be/NDGUixiK5g4 that shows off some of the wonderful and quirky things he did in interviews, Directs and at E3. What other CEO of any company would do his Smash Bros fight? The bit towards the end with Miyamoto genuinely had me in tears, they just looked like a couple of gamers who can't believe their luck in what they're doing. The world needs more people like him, not less.

@tjames84 If you honest to God think he's rubbish then you need to take off your club loyalty hat. He's by no means rubbish. I don't like Ashley Cole, think he's a massive waste of space and a disgrace as a person, never mind a footballer. But he's a great player when he performs. Difference between having on the club loyalty hat and not.

rastamadeus commented on Review: Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4):

@BAMozzy I can see there are many technical marvels around this gen. But, for me, as games first and foremost they've all disappointed. There's three games on PS4 that I have genuinely enjoyed since day one: PvZ Garden Warfare, Resogun, Diablo 3 Reaper Of Souls. Two of them are on last gen systems, the other is on the Vita too. For us (my partner and I) that just is not enough. I'd never say I speak for everyone and I know many are immensely enjoying the games on PS4, Xbox One and Wii U. I wish I was one of them.

I'll try and keep this Liverpool bit short so it's not off topic, but I'd be happy with Benteke. The money is stupid, but so is what we want for Sterling. Benteke isn't just a target man, he can play and would link up nicely with us plus give us (potentially) an incredible plan b if needed. I'm not over the moon with him but I think he'd do a cracking job here. Just need to do some cross practice in training, to go along with practising scoring, defending, containing...

rastamadeus commented on Live: Watch the Full, Uncut Version of Unchart...:

@eLarkos They don't appeal to me in the slightest bit. I've said before I really don't think Naughty Dog are anywhere near the studio they're made out to be. Making something prettier doesn't make me change my mind. I will, of course, try the game when it's out and if it's good I'll say it. Even if it makes me look a prat I'll say "this is good!" Despite many on here I actually try games before giving out my opinion on them. That's how I know I don't like Uncharted games. Same with Last Of Us. It's just a shame too many people on here - and other sites - are too much of a fanboy to say "this isn't good" when it isn't.

The one thing I have always praised Naughty Dog for though is moving on. Each gen they try something else. Again, I've not liked them, but that's a brave thing for a studio to do, not rely on one thing. This just feels like doing it for the sake of it, rather than wanting to. I think they have something wonderful in them - Last Of Us should have been it but they forgot the game play - and it just annoys me that they don't seem to want to do it, just play it safe.

You know what @Davros79? I wrote a massive comment on what I think about people like you who can't handle people disagreeing with their own opinion. But you're not worth it. Chill out, grow up. accept your opinion isn't gospel. Have a good weekend. Try not to punch someone who's wearing a top you don't think is nice.

I will though repeat one part I wrote, next time you want to have a (very childish attempt of a) pop at me, have the balls to @ me in it.

rastamadeus commented on Liverpool's Jordan Henderson Is Officially FIF...:

We've had to have Rooney (massively overrated, he's a good player not the messiah he's made out to be), Wilshire (a fashion accessory, not a footballer) and others on the cover yet they're forgotten as it's a Liverpool player so Blues, Mancs and Chelsea fans have to moan. Next year when a different player is on the cover people will moan again. You'd swear EA had told people they've killed their pet the way Twitter has reacted. It was him or Harry Kane, and nobody wants to see his gurning excuse of a smile on the cover of their box. Don't like who's on the cover? Do what you've always done, not give a damn or turn the cover.

@FantasyMeister Faye Williams should've been on the cover. She was sublime for England in the World Cup. To be honest, it's a joke that it's taken this long to put the women's game in FIFA. Don't expect a woman on an English cover for around a decade. Especially when far too many people still ridicule it.

@Bad-MuthaAdebisi Half of Manchester? Why? Is there suddenly only a handful of people in Manchester? The three United-supporting people are hardly half of the 505,000 in the city.

rastamadeus commented on Soapbox: I Decided to Show My Family Uncharted...:

@HeyDrumstickGuy There's no telling if that is an allowed path or its all a free choice though. Why this video does absolutely nothing for me as you know you won't be doing much of what's going on bar a few presses of cross or tap of square.

As for gaming families, my Nan used to love watching me play on my Mega Drive when I was little. She was fascinated by it all and would sit there for as long as I played. When I moved to the N64 my Mum watched Mario 64 all the time as she though Mario looked cute running around. Nowadays people in my family don't particularly care ("if I want to watch an interactive movie I'll give you the special signal, which is me being sectioned under the Mental Health Act" as my Mum said, ripping off one of TV's greatest characters). That's not including my seven year old nephew though, who sits mouth-wide open at the games I play, not realising there's more to gaming than the games he shouldn't be playing but my sister stupidly lets him.

rastamadeus commented on Review: Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4):

@Shellybird27 Video games are third love-wise behind my child and Liverpool FC (don't tell her indoors). Hate is a word I would never use to describe my feelings towards gaming. Complete boredom and indifference this gen is though. That's because for me this gen is just becoming depressing. Look at E3 this year, people getting overly excited for prettier versions of the same game they've played before or remakes, rehashes and clones. Nothing has truly excited me in the past two years. This was my one of my two big hopes for this year (alongside No Man's Sky) and while it's by no means a bad game it's just... meh. There's no other word. It's not great, it's not bad, it's not memorable, it's not anything.

Outside in the 'real world' I'm on the most optimistic people you'll meet. Have to be being a Liverpool fan. Still convinced I'll one day get Scarlett Johansson. But gaming has become such a boring, depressing, miserable and soulless experience. I can't think of a single game on PS4, Xbox One or Wii U that I have genuinely had more than a few hours of fun with. Everybody is different, you may like Black Ops while I think it's dross. Nowt wrong with that, and I'm by no means saying my loss of love with gaming is happening to everyone.

The missus and I made the choice this week to sell my PS4 and her Wii U and Xbox One. We now have only a PS3 and don't regret anything. When there's literally nothing for us on all three consoles it's just a collection of expensive paperweights. With most games on PS4/XBO being on last gen machines too it's hardly like we'll miss anything either. I'm just afraid a prettier slog through another bland Uncharted, a remake of the most returned game ever, replaying StarFox 64 again with dated visuals, yet another boring trip through Master Chief's tedious worlds, etc etc aren't things I can get excited about. If others can then great, and if they genuinely crave those sort of things then more power to them. Wish I could. But I can't, and I won't pretend I am. I'd rather be honest and say "this is crap" than con myself into thinking it's great when it isn't as a lot of people do on here as there's Sony fanboys galore - look at The Order for example. Or, for impartiality, Nintendo ones defending their boring games and Microsoft theirs. I'll call a spade a spade, how I've always been.

Hopefully a year or two away from the dross that this gen has been - again, for me - while going through a ridiculous amount of PS3 games left in my backlog I will rekindle my love of gaming and start to get excited again. And when that day comes I'll tag you in the comment and show you there's games that do make me smile (Persona 4 Dancing, Project Diva F, Yooka-Laylee, No Man's Sky and PvZ 2 have all had me saying positive things about them on here by the way).

rastamadeus commented on Live: Watch the Full, Uncut Version of Unchart...:

Mind blowing? Hardly. I wasn't impressed the first time round on a dodgy stream (typical Naughty Dog tactic - more of the same, prettier, no way near the hype) and after watching it again? Still not impressed. Only a matter of time until the frauds in Naughty Dog are found out. Can't just keep making the same game only prettier and prettier and keep getting away with it. Nintendo are slagged for it, EA and Activision are slagged for it, Naughty Dog's slagging is coming. Ten years ago this would have looked like the dawn of a new age of gaming, today it's just as predictable as you'd expect.

rastamadeus commented on July's Free PlayStation Plus Games Include Roc...:

@Mrskinner That for me is the worst part of the PS+ articles on here. Too many people seem to think that if you don't like the games you're scum and then criticise the amount of people who complain. Problem with that is the people complaining about the complainers actually dwarf those who are unhappy by three or four times.

@adf86 Entwined is a glorified indie game. Was made by a group of students who just happened to get lucky and earn some backing from Sony. It's a decent little game but once the 'ooo, pretty/trippy' effect wears off a few hours in it's lack of replayability (despite challenges and score attack) really shows.

As for the games, it's the usual meh from me. Seems to be a collection of games that will thrill you for a few hours and then never be touched again. Like most of the games have been over the last year/year and a half. There's nothing wrong with the games offered but when Sony promise you quality and you're not given actual quality it's not hard to see why people complain. If you're told for a yearly fee you'll get a loaf of fresh bread and then after a few months you start getting loaves that are out of date already then you wouldn't be happy. Terrible analogy but it's f**king boiling, I'm far too hot and worried I'm dangerously close to Dave's Syndrome.

They'll be one more PS4 on sale later this week as I trade mine in. Keeping the PS3 as it has games I actually play (not for a while, admittedly) but from day one the PS4 for me has been a colossal waste of time and this will be only the second console I've ever traded in, after the Wii.

rastamadeus commented on Poll: Which Batman: Arkham Game Is the Best?:

Asylum. While City is the better game in every single way, it just didn't have the feel that Asylum did so has always been a little behind it for me. Origins was just a disaster, Origins Blackgate is surprisingly decent and probably third best. Knight? Incredible technical marvel but as a game it's absurdly dull and annoying (hello Batmobile).

rastamadeus commented on Review: Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4):

I'm around five-six hours in and it's so disappointing thus far. I don't want to play a driving game, I want to play an Arkham game. This has been the one game I've kept my PS4 for, the one game I've wanted this year and the one game I was hoping would restart my love for gaming but I'm bored senseless of it and forcing myself to keep playing. Hopefully it's going to grab me soon but I've never been this bored playing a game before - even started playing on my mobile during (yet another) talky bit.

@AyeHaley I said something during the E3 stream about how games are reviewed now. It's been so long since we had a genuinely outstanding title (across all formats) that games which are 'just' very good are receiving marks of 9 or 10 when five years ago they'd have got 7 or 8. Bloodborne is the latest, it's a cracking game, easily the best this gen so far, but 10? No way near. Five-ten years ago it would've got 8, 9 at a push if being biased, today it's heralded as the second coming.

Affable? Part of Sony Europe who aren't prepared to actually answer peoples queries or address their worries unless they crawling up the company's backside? Fair enough, he's only acting on orders from higher up but affable is nowhere near close to describing him.

As for the games, I think we're closer to getting something of a 'big' (notice the '') name like Knack. Gonna go out on a limb here and say Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Ubisoft have given away an AC game before and with a new one coming, plus the fuss made over the last one, it would make sense to include it. Maybe not next month but very soon.

@Gamer83 "Kicking ass and taking names" and "my body is ready" are the only good things Reggie has ever done. And that was primarily because they were amusing until memes became a way of showing how funny and original you are by not being funny and original.

He's as moronic as certain people at Sony, Microsoft, every company ever. Just a shame people forget the idiots in their favoured company when one of the others opens their mouth. Can't quite believe he's even allowed out in public (before or after this years E3) but when he answers a question honestly and (for once) speaks completely sensible truths it's not really worthy or a story as it's just trying to start a row. Insert generic meme of someone say eating popcorn with the words 'this gonna be good' here to show just how funny and original I am.

Nothing he said was a pop at PlayStation or anything wrong either. As the article itself states he's answering a question, that's all.

Expect that on plenty of sites but on here? Got to be honest, I expected better.

@rjejr Reggie himself accidentally said they're making a new home console at E3. I just don't think it is the NX, I'd still put my money on it being the OS and we'll have a new handheld and console announced by Ninty. Maybe even a phone and tablet too.

@BlueProxy All four companies (including Sega) have praised their competitors machines and games over the past thirty years. But Miyamoto saying "I enjoyed Shenmue" isn't a story. Him saying "Shenmue is crap" is. People don't want to hear that sort of stuff, they'd rather have something more clickbait-based which will start a fanboy flame war.

@ironcrow86 Well you, seeing as you've taken the time to comment on what Nintendo think. Never quite understood why people say what you did as it shows you do care.

Is this something you are forced to have on the PS4 or can it be taken away? I know it's an optional download but I mean on the fifteen last used list we have. There's already far too many things Sony force us to have on there such as TV&Video, Music, Live on PlayStation, PS Store - why they moved that I'll never understand - and the web browser (does using that for even a second make anyone else's PS4 slow to a crawl like mine does?). It's about time we can have what we want on our own damn machines. Or, radical alternative, folders.

rastamadeus commented on Soapbox: Was E3 2015 Just a Dream?:

For me, was nowhere near a dream. The whole E3 has been a massive disappointment. I'm really falling out of love with games and nothing, not one single game shown, has changed that. Sony easily had the best show but for me personally it was nothing special in any way shape or form. Shenmue got my interest - and a donation similarly sized as yours Sammy - but even then it's just pure nostalgia. I can see why people are getting excited though (bar Uncharted and that dream game which just looks utter gibberish), sadly I just can't.

rastamadeus commented on Talking Point: What Freebies Would You Like in...:

@DVS Massively delayed response I've not played The Witcher III. Got it on day one, watched the missus playing it and not touched it myself. It's literally like I'm falling out of love with gaming. Saw The Last Guardian E3 trailer - a game I've wanted for nearly a third of my life! - and all I could think was "meh." Gaming just doesn't excite me in any way at the moment. Forced myself to go through Far Cry 4 (as I loved the third) and despite Platinuming it I couldn't tell you a single thing about it, just left no impression on me. Even my excitement for Arkham Knight has completely gone now. Sure a lot of people see my comments on here and think I'm just slagging Sony but it's a Sony site. If I comment on a Nintendo or Microsoft one I'm just the same as, for me, games are at an all time low. Least it's sunny today though, ha.

rastamadeus commented on E3 2015: Nintendo Doesn't Have High Hopes for ...:

To be fair, he's bang on. Man is a bit of a muppet anyway (never seen the fuss with him) but VR is a fad that comes around every now and then before dying. Again. This is no different. The abuse he's getting though just shows you how fanboys work. Man is asked question, man answers question, fanboys act like he's randomly come out with it.

Have to laugh about the fuss over Nintendo's E3 though. For years people have slagged them off for not going mobile. They go mobile and the games shown are clearly mobile games on steroids, like an experiment into what works but on a much grander style. They get slaughtered. It was a very poor show but you'd think Reggie and Iwata had dug up the bodies of our dead loved ones and humped them live on TV the way the internet has reacted.

@get2sammyb NX is going to be an operating system. It makes the most sense and allows them to be on consoles, handheld consoles, phones, tablets...

@goonow Massive difference between AR mini games and proper VR.

Not a single a want or must have. Impressive list. Personally speaking all this E3 has done is make me question my gaming hobby even more. When people are getting overly excited about remakes of the most returned game of all time, games that are just prettier clones of other titles, more of the same games and nothing at all new or fresh then you see how bad this thing I once truly loved is becoming. Besides No Man's Sky - purely as it intrigues me to see how open it is - there is absolutely no PS4, Xbox One or Wii U game I am even half intrigued about until Shenmue 3 eventually drops. Very expensive paperweights.
