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

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare for me. Got addicted to it over the past couple of days. May dabble in some FIFA too, if the Derby goes well (for some reason when we, Liverpool, lose - so often at the moment - I just won't touch football games).

@crazykcarter I found PES slower, more unnatural and even more boring than the last few. Can't be worse than the last one though, surely. Worst football game I've ever played - with so little commentary you'd have thought the game was on a NES cartridge.

@Shellybird27 Oh look, you're yet again failing to understand people are allowed to have different opinions to you. Wonders never cease. If @grenworthshero doesn't like indies he's allowed to say it. You're not judge, jury and executioner, no matter how much you pretend you are. Also nowhere did he say he was "hardcore" but don't let that stop you waffling crap.

rastamadeus commented on Sony Reckons Project Morpheus Is Seriously Gam...:

Of course he'll big it up, he's hardly likely to say "You know there's been a long, long line up of crap add-ons for consoles over the years? Add this to the list! Best start queuing now so all your friends can tell you what a prat you are for wasting hundreds of pounds!" are they? It's when people not connected in any way to Sony start saying its a game changer that you should start taking note. PS Move was the future once. And WonderBook, Mega CD, 32X, 64DD...

rastamadeus commented on Rumour: Killzone Creator Guerrilla Games Finds...:

It looks like Turok, which isn't good. Will undoubtedly be beautiful but Guerilla don't exactly have a track record for great games. They always promise the world before delivering Middlesborough.

Add me into the single player revolt that @JaxonH and @Gamer83 are amassing. Genuinely thought I was the only one who wanted single player.

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

Although everything is nippier and easier on the PS4 I still find myself rarely wanting to use it. I've bought Watch Dogs, PvZ and Destiny all on launch days and all are still in their cellophane wrappers. They don't excite me enough to want to turn the console on, the console doesn't excite me enough to want to use it. I find I'm forcing myself to play it, like recently with inFAMOUS and it's DLC. Keep hoping the PS4 is gonna click with me but it's been nearly a year now and our relationship is still cold.

I'll believe it when I see it. To be honest when anything is posted on the Sony Europe blog nowadays I take it with a pinch of salt. The amount of lies told on there - from staff and commenter's - is ludicrous.

As for DriveClub, I'm not a big fan of realistic racing games but this one has me intrigued for some reason.

rastamadeus commented on Guide: How to Turn Off PS4 Party Notifications...:

@Paranoimia The thing is even if it is difficult to implement now it 100% should have been there in the first place. It really seems Sony just rushed the OS for PS4 and now are left having to do hard work putting in things that should have been there from the start. It's a mess of their own making.

Is there any news yet on whether they plan to have a Special Ops mode? Or Survival? Sledgehammer designed both modes in MW3 and my cousins and I still play those in split-screen today. I can't stand single player and online multiplayer COD but if it has those two modes I'm in. Just not the piss poor Survival attempt Ghosts had. That was abysmal.

The last Mortal Kombat left me as cold as a snowman's armpit and this one is giving me the same feeling sadly :( Used to love these games.

Also WB/NR can get stuffed. Extra costumes or a special action figure I can let you off, but cutting a character out of a fighting game unless you pre-order? Pull your pants down ladies and gents. Get ready for the veiny shaft of cash extraction this gen.

rastamadeus commented on Weirdness: How Would You like to Study PlaySta...:

@car1os_h_ I rang up to tell me a free game on PS+ had charged my account over £70. It took four calls to speak to someone who actually admitted PS+ existed. I was told there's no such thing as PS+, I wasn't on it and the game didn't exist. Over six months on I'm still waiting for the money back.

rastamadeus commented on Study With a Virtual Reality Schoolgirl on PS4...:

"There's little explanation as to why the girl is dressed in a school uniform during the summer holidays" a lot of high school girls wear their uniforms out of term time, especially with clubs (activities, not nightclubs) in the summer. Women long out of school wear them too as a fashion piece. The missus saw loads on weekends and night times when there.

rastamadeus commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Sony's Pre-Tokyo G...:

Personally, after only just watching it, I found it awful and voted very poor. Persona 5 apart there was literally nothing that excited me. It was better presented and paced than recent Sony shows but there was no wow moment.

rastamadeus commented on Dragon Quest Meets Dynasty Warriors in PS4's D...:

Not a fan of Dynasty Warriors or Dragon Quest (especially the art style) but Hyrule Warriors looks amazing. The hype and desire to play that so much will likely lead to me buying this.

@Artie Yeah as the Zelda games never had fighting in them, did they? There's no stretch whatsoever with Zelda or DQ.

rastamadeus commented on Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is Smashing Its Wa...:

@ShogunRok If all DLC is included I'll buy the game for a third time as I love Dead Or Alive. I know it's not the most complex of beat 'em up games but I've enjoyed them since the Saturn. Sadly I can't see them doing it as it would mean them missing sales of the DLC. Just please no sodding training Trophies this time, every character has two or three moves I just can't do, stopping me Platting both DOA5 and DOA5U.

rastamadeus commented on Peggle 2's Popping onto PS4 This October:

@viciousarcanum No, the entire world pretends it's brilliant just to confuse you. We're all in on the act.

Can't wait for this. Love me some Peggle and means one of the two Xbox One games I want is now gonna be available to me. Sunset Overdrive is the other but I highly doubt we'll get that one sadly.

rastamadeus commented on PS4 Shooter Velocity 2X Flies for Free in Sept...:

This month is so bad it's bordering on ridiculousness (for me). January's update - the one with DMC - was the last time I personally didn't find the service meh or worse. Seriously disappointed and fed up now with PS+ and for the first time I'm actually considering stopping when my subscription runs out. And as I can't be doing with online gaming I'm basically paying for games I own already or I'm not interested in and then haven't liked or enjoyed when tried (I try them all, can't judge unless you do). It's been ten months since I enjoyed a game off there. Sadly my fears for the service have come true, now you have to pay to play online there is no point in Sony trying to entice people onto PS+ and the quality - and quality, let's not forget - is declining massively. So, to quote the Dragon's, "I'm out."

rastamadeus commented on Review: inFAMOUS: First Light (PlayStation 4):

Have to say I found inFAMOUS 1 and 2 utter garbage. Two of the worst games I've ever played which weren't helped by a dreadful script, awful and boring gameplay, repetitive combat and the player character being so unlikeable it was untrue.

I gave Second Son a try as it was under a tenner. I'm glad I did. Absolutely everything is better and - thank The Lord! - for the first time in a first party Sony game I actually liked the player character. Easily the best exclusive on PS4 so far. Looking forward to trying this add on when back from The Lakes.

rastamadeus commented on Is PSN Offline? Yes, and the Scheduled Mainten...:

Jesus Christ you'd think someone had shot Obama, Hitler has come back to life or Man United are wasting £60m on a player they don't need (they are?). PSN is down. Accept it and move on with your lives. If your life is this badly affected by not being able to use a PlayStation you need to seriously reevaluate your life. Go outside, read a book, watch a classic film, maybe even try and get laid.

rastamadeus commented on September PlayStation Plus Update Information ...:

Lego Marvel Superheroes on PS4 would be nice. It's not an indie so people wouldn't complain, it's a decent game and Warner/TT have given three Lego games away already (albeit on Vita) so there's clearly willingness there. That and Velocity 2X would be a good mix.

@Sadodi AAA-game and Killzone in same sentence? Irony. There's no genuine AAA-game on either PS4 or Xbox One yet so don't expect anything massive for at least another year.

@Johnnycide Yeah it is amusing that congaing. It's just the goths I saw really getting into 'Gangam Style' where ones who I'd overheard talking all scene-like, laughing at my friend who came down the stairs while singing a La Roux song (to be fair, it's infectiously catchy). Was literally like "I'd never dance to something pop.... ['Gangam' comes on] TUNE!!!!"

rastamadeus commented on Feature: 21 of the Most Awful PlayStation Netw...:

@SimonAdebisi Woah, woah, woah. "Meh"? GTFO. "Instant Crush" is easily one of the top five songs this decade and their recent album is sublime, especially if listened to in one go at night when it's raining. Beautiful album from a stupidly talented band... if only they weren't French. Give it a go in that condition and if you don't realise it's amazing I'll buy you a pasty. We're all northern, it's what we all eat (apparently).

rastamadeus commented on Puyo Puyo Tetris to Clear Screens on PS4 in Japan:

Dear Sega,
You know how there's thousands of fans wanting the latest Yakuza games translated and released outside of Japan? And how you're still denying us the Vita version of F2P Phantasy Star Online 2? How about you get off your arses and give us Puyo Puyo Tetris? Unlike the other said games it won't involve God knows how much money translating it so it will be cheap. I'll even buy a copy on all three systems as I NEED me some more Puyo Puyo.
Sincerely,
Paul Thomas

rastamadeus commented on Review: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate...:

Loved Diablo III but there's no way it's worth even the £40 which I paid last September. Adding in an expansion and some new bits and bobs does not make it now more expensive. Probably grab this this time next year when it's not so overpriced.

@Boerewors The game is close to a 10 when you're just nine hours in and it's a God knows how many hours to 100% finish game? Course. You can not possibly judge a game until it's finished.

@KALofKRYPTON It's a penny under £60 on PSN, which is presumably where @SimonAdebisi is talking about and, frankly, is a pisstake by Blizzard and Sony EU. And whether @Diddy_kong has the PS3 version or not, it's still overpriced. Loved the game (as I said above) but it's not worth that price by any means.

rastamadeus commented on Gamescom 2014: The Last Guardian Still Exists,...:

@RawShark Ocarina Of Time was delayed by six months because of the failure of the 64DD (and having to change it to a cartridge) and then another six months because Miyamoto wanted to add more into it as the cartridge had much more space than they realised when the game was finished. The Last Guardian has been delayed for years because it is a mess and doesn't work properly while having all sorts of behind the scenes problems. Couldn't be more different.

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

@viciousarcanum Whereas people are getting sick of people like you who whine about it. If someone doesn't like indies and wants 'proper big budget retail games' it doesn't make them an idiot, they just prefer them to indies. Too many PS4 owners are becoming sort of gaming snobs, looking down on people who don't like indies. It makes you no less of a gamer to not like an indie, it just makes the 'snobs' look like tits.

@MoleZandor Vita has been dead for well over a year. People need to stop clinging to this ridiculous belief that it's still okay, it's not. The handheld is dead. Just enjoy what game it has coming left.

rastamadeus commented on Gamescom 2014: A Re-Imagining of Tearaway Will...:

While I loved the Vita original I can't see the point of this. A game that didn't set the world on fire despite heavy advertising on Vita thanks to it being a niche game is hardly going to do amazing on PS4. Personally I shall get it but as @Jazzer94 said it should be budget price at the very least. Hopefully they've added reasons to go back to the game too as once it's finished there's nothing to do in it or any incentive to play it again.
