rastamadeus commented on These Are Your Free PS4 PlayStation Plus Title...:

@Bad-MuthaAdebis Good idea. Or the people moaning about people complaining in the first twenty-four hours could just not bother. For every one person on here saying "awful month" there's ten moaning at them for being "disloyal," "pathetic," "sad" or "ungrateful" for daring to have the nerve to think different from them.

rastamadeus commented on These Are Your Free PS4 PlayStation Plus Title...:

It's better that there's a couple of big names in there but still find it poor personally. Injustice is boring (I just can't get into anything Netherealm make nowadays), Secret Ponchos looks boring too (not my type of game), First Light I've already Platted and is a red herring as it's about five hours long and Swapper just doesn't intrigue me.

Bigger picture wise it's good to see a couple of bigger names but nothing here is AAA. People confuse a well known name with AAA quality. These aren't. Will quieten a few naysayers though. As for me... my PS+ runs out in five days and I have no intention of renewing with this lineup so I'm intrigued to see the PS3/Vita titles. Then again what is actually left to give away on either of those consoles?

@PMasterTy9 Yeah, people forget we now use PS+ to pay for PSN. And the money is being well used there by Sony in making the service slower and more unreliable than ever.

rastamadeus commented on Grand Theft Auto V Has More, Er, Grass on Play...:

Off topic but is anyone finiding aiming difficult? Shooting with either of my DualShock 4's is awful. The right sticks just isn't responsive enough, especially in first person mode. It feels like it's stuck in mud, The shooting range I aced nearly first go every time on PS3 yet on PS4 I'm struggling to get even a bronze.

rastamadeus commented on Just What Is Sony Santa Monica Working on for ...:

@sinalefa On the contrary, majority of people seem to have had enough of GOW. If it is a new one - and I dearly hope it isn't - I hope the studio have been watching and playing Bayonetta 2. A single level in that has been more fun than all GOWs put together. No shame in learning from the best.

rastamadeus commented on What New Songs Are in Grand Theft Auto V on Pl...:

Jaime Lidell is in. That is all that matters. Nice to also hear Gorillaz and M.I.A but William (I'm not spelling his name how he moronically does it) has two songs? Which coin purse decided that?

@Punished_Boss_84 @get2sammyb The '80s is by far the best decade for music: Adam and The Ants, The Smiths, Paul Simon, The Clash, OMD, The Jam, Joy Division, New Order, one of Bowie's best periods, Pet Shop Boys, Human League, Michael Jackson, Jesus and The Mary Chain, The Stone Roses, Dinosaur Jr, Prince, The Cure Pixies, Talking Heads... it's the only decade that can realistically compete with the the '60s holy grail.

rastamadeus commented on Round Up: Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Reviews Extor...:

@ZeD No I just meant there's so many examples you could realistically use yet you chose a FarCry game that - amazing as it's being said it is - is just FarCry 3 with bells on and a slightly prettier GTAV. Neither of them are anywhere near to comparing to the argument (rightly or wrongly) that Mario and Zelda are the same. I know exactly the point you're trying to make, even though I personally think it's poppycock, but you made it so poorly you argument fell flat on it's face is all.

rastamadeus commented on Round Up: Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Reviews Extor...:

Has there been any confirmation as to what happens online yet? I know character progress carries over but do the Trophies? Personally I don't really care as I'm happy to mess about online and work my way up again (I'm one of the few who actually enjoyed it) but a couple of my mates are holding off as they don't wanna have to do it again, hoping the online ones ping straight away.

rastamadeus commented on Minecraft: PS Vita Edition Secures System's Th...:

Third biggest ever? So ten whole people got it? On a serious note I really don't get the fuss over it not having a bundle, kids who want Minecraft have it on their consoles and parents phones/tablets. "Hey Daddy, can you buy me a machine for over £100 so I can play Minecraft, you know, the game I already have?" is, in nearly every house going to get the same answer, "No." A year, or longer, ago maybe but now it's too late. Like everything Sony do with the Vita.

rastamadeus commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:

@Aaronzord You could not be more right. The sequel is mind-bendingly awesome. Utterly addictive as hell but my word some of the challenges are grinding to the extreme (if you're a completionist like myself).

@naruball Have you played season two yet? They all pop up in it, one of them in a main way. Maybe more do actually but with the choices I made was just the one. As for your glitches part, take a look at some Sonic Boom ones on Wii U - proof rushing games (and half your staff leaving midway through) isn't a good idea. Just like having a Sonic game where YOU CAN'T RUN!

@KAPADO Playing Ghosts are you?

@JaxonH Other M is a vastly underrated game. People whine about it because of Samus not being Samus but the game itself is solid. If it had come out before the Prime series - and what a game the original Prime is! - then nobody would have complained about it as it feels more of a classic Metroid than the Prime games.

rastamadeus commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:

Murdered: Soul Suspects for me. Played forty minutes and I've done 29% of Trophies, which can't be right. How can the first Trophy you get (hunter or not) be a silver? Madness.

@naruball Only problem I had with the 400 Days DLC is the characters are all new so there's no attachment. Still very good but not quite as good as the main bulk of season one.

rastamadeus commented on Evolution Studios Prepares Free Apologetic Dri...:

@rykkchii Difference is the other chefs aren't a continuous embarrassment to their owners, are they? Sony should be making sure the game works fine before releasing anything at all, paid or free. Or to your analogy, making sure they're not selling out of date food that's been humped by rats.

@KALofKRYPTON Nobody is dismissing what works works and from what I've heard, seen and had a quick go on it's a good game. Thing is for every person who's getting it working fine there's another who isn't and to say it's just challenges not working still isn't good enough - the game is for sale and does not work. But if you honestly think nearly six weeks is what it takes to get a game at near-working level after release - not even fully working - then it's you that needs to pull your head out your backside I'm afraid. The "mob rules" are people fed up with being told crap continuously about what's going on, still no PS+ version (not even a hint of it) and now releasing DLC before it's even working fully

rastamadeus commented on Evolution Studios Prepares Free Apologetic Dri...:

That they're more concerned with getting DLC out - ultimately being forced to give it away for free - rather than fix the sodding thing tells you everything you need to know about Evolution. Imagine if EA or Activision announced "Hey, game's still broke, we're doing half an hours work each day to fix it, oh here's some DLC!" - the comments on every website would be full of outrage. Same should be here. Free or not it doesn't matter.

rastamadeus commented on Sanzaru Games Crushes Sly Cooper PS4 Sequel Dr...:

A shame and a meh from me. Shame as Sly 4 was the best one since the original for me, made it more platformy and got rid of a lot of the dreadful cast. Meh as it added characters just as dreadful and although good didn't feel right.

rastamadeus commented on Share Play Is at the Centre of Sony's New PS4 ...:

Least it doesn't have the God awful computer-garbled "PlayStation" voice the American adverts have. They need to drop the 'This is for the players' tagline though as almost nothing Sony have done this year goes with that, maybe try 'This is to take mick'?. As for the advert itself, typical crap video game advert really. Sort of gets the point across but is just typically rubbish. You wouldn't know Sony once had mastery over video game advertising would you? Why can no-one advertise video games any more without it making you think 'meh'?

rastamadeus commented on Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (PlaySt...:

@Shellybird27 Really enjoyed Advanced Warfare but has to be Bayonetta 2 if you're choosing one or the other. Or B2 and any game. Just ridiculously good fun and the clear standout game of the year.

@Reverandjames Can complete Infamous: Second Son's story in well under ten hours. Gonna burn down Sony's offices for that? I completed Luigi's Mansion (one of my favourite ever games) in four hours on my first play but no point did I have a hissy fit. In what world did you expect a COD game to last hours and hours? In and out, like all war FPS games.

rastamadeus commented on Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (PlaySt...:

Must admit I'm actually enjoying it a lot more than I thought. Single player was all poppycock but enjoyable (a Jason Statham version of warfare, as always), multiplayer is balanced enough to not have your ass handed to you within seconds and survival is like a great mixture of the MW3's mode and an old Sega arcade-type game. It's the first COD since MW3 I've thought is better than dire. And no Zombies mode! Woohoo.

rastamadeus commented on PS4 Firmware Update 2.01 Now Live:

@Bad-MuthaAdebis I get the notification on PS4 and iPhone app fine. Just takes anything between five minutes and half an hour to see the actual message on PS4. Half the time my messages won't send until the fourth attempt - always works on fourth try for some reason. The app is just a mess (as a service and in design, they've managed to make it less cluttered yet utterly more bothersome). Always times out, no matter what I'm doing or where I am. No other app does that.

rastamadeus commented on PS4 Firmware Update 2.01 Now Live:

@Remixora Yeah I've had that problem since day one. Still not able to get anything from my library either, if I try to play Strider (for example) it takes me to the PSN page for the game, says to download it then says it already is, loads the game and says I have to download the game. Been like that about a month before 2.00 was out. I'm basically suck with disc games, Minecraft and Sound Shapes.

rastamadeus commented on Injustice, inFAMOUS: First Light, and More Com...:

Infamous: First Light was far too short but great fun. Injustice bored the pants off of me. Neither are "AAA" so will be interesting to see if people actually want AAA and continue to question Sony or just "retail" on the service. The line-up all but confirms, for me, that DriveClub won't be happening. By February no-one will give the tiniest s**t.

On Fetch, she's hot. Simple as. Then again she looks like my missus so I have to say that.

rastamadeus commented on PS4 Rest Mode Boot Problems Prompt the Strange...:

Haven't had the rest mode problem myself thankfully, even though I always have it in rest mode. Only issues I've had with the latest update is sometimes games refuse to open the first two or three times I start them saying the operation can't be started or no disc is inserted. Always works after a couple of tries though.

rastamadeus commented on Feature: How Has the PS4 Fared in Its First Year?:

@Scollurio As it all comes down to opinion. I, for example cannot understand how anybody could give it anything higher than a C (and that's me being very, very kind) but if they think that then fine. Depends what you want out of a console and how much you're willing to put up with.

There's at least three posts here where you know they've been far too kind though which just comes down to fanboys. The PS4 could have sold six machines, been slated the worst thing ever invented and some would still say it's an A++. Why polls are, in my opinion, stupid. Like Sky Sports doing polls all week on which United or City player is best and United always won as they have more supporters. Even though no-one could say RVP is a better striker than Aguero at the moment the Dutchman still got like 70% of the vote. Just daft.

rastamadeus commented on Feature: How Has the PS4 Fared in Its First Year?:

You know how an 8 Out Of 10 Does Countdown episode starts really slowly and people just sit through the boredom clicking their fingers waiting for Joe Wilkinson to arrive and make everyone wet themselves with laughter? How the second half of the show is a mixture of hysterics when Joe opens his mouth and meh when he's quiet? That's how the PS4 has been for me. Started very badly (nothing interested me) and then it's been a mixture of great and awful. D for me.

Finishing off Need For Speed Rivals and Project DIVA F 2nd. Might go on Ded Or Alive 5 Ultimate too, pretend every opponent is Brendan Rodgers and shout "Attack with pace! Passpasspass doesn't work from the back! Get Graham (Glen Johnson) out!" til I feel better.

rastamadeus commented on Guerrilla, Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, and Many...:

No Evolution Studios?

Personally I want to see something from Guerrilla and Naughty Dog that favours gameplay over graphics. Both studios can create wonderful looking visuals but I'm yet to find any of their games more than average. You make games guys, remember, try making one rather than a repetitive "experience."

Oh and if Sony announce they're working with Treasure on something than I'll forgive all the garbage that they have done this year.

rastamadeus commented on November's PS Plus Offering Is an Indie Game E...:

@MoleZandor If a game isn't to your liking the cost (£60 or 60p) makes zero difference so let's not bother with that excuse.

Still amuses me that the most complaints are people complaining about the ones saying they're unhappy. Hardly anyone in here had said "no indies!" just they don't like the the games or aren't impressed with the titles. But hey, let's all bend over to Sony eh? Only thing worse than fanboys are brown nosers and PS+ defending doesn't half bring them out.

rastamadeus commented on PS4's Free DriveClub: PS Plus Edition Has Been...:

If Evolution are still with us this time next year I will be flabbergasted. If studios like Studio Liverpool are shut for no reason, bar the "money saving" excuse, then what chance do companies which are making Sony and the PS4 a laughing stock have of surviving? Certainly don't want anyone losing their job in this day and age - especially as I know people who have friends and family working there - but they're screwed. Can see Sony passing on any DriveClub DLC to another studio.

rastamadeus commented on November's PS Plus Offering Is an Indie Game E...:

That Sony Europe still haven't said "this is our lot this month" it makes me think they're either hastily arranging something - I read Knack was coming out this month - or they know the storm of hate that awaits them, rightly or wrongly.

@Punished_Boss_84 Wasn't actually meaning to post so apologies. Somehow a cut and paste text got sent to you off my phone, ha.

If you don't like us "lot" complaining then why read them? People pay for a product, they aren't satisfied, they are allowed to complain, whether people like the service themselves or not. Maybe if Sony listened to the general complaints these problems would stop? No, that won't ever happen.

For the record, if you read my first message (obviously not seeing as you dumped me in the "lot") you'd have seen I have zero problems with indies. If a game is good, it's good. Couldn't care if one person makes it or a hundred with a budget of millions. I complain as since the turn of the year there have been just three games I've liked (worth half the PS+ price) and I'm fed up or the lies and miscommunication about the service on Sony's end. But hey, feel free to complain some more about the complaining. The majority of complaining the last few PS+ updates on here have been about people complaining.

@ToOGoodOfAPlaya The problem is there are people like you (wanting more variety) who get lumped in the complaining category and nobody bothers to read into it. Lost count of how many times I've wrote my grievances with PS+ yet it's still "you just complain about indies".

Oh, and to waddle into your antagonising argument with @Tasuki - the gif posted clearly at me,the high horse, I can see how it could have antagonised me so you're bang on. Fortunately I think gifs in an attempt at humour just screams trying too hard so ignore them.

rastamadeus commented on November's PS Plus Offering Is an Indie Game E...:

People are allowed to complain about indie games if they want to so let's not let this descend into people on here acting all high and mighty as if every indie game is gold. They're not. There's as many garbage indie games as there are AAA. Remember that before getting on your high horses people as more often than not those are the people who seem more backwards than the indie haters during the PS Plus arguments on here.
