    To the questions about no music - what would you do with a small team and a limited budget? Get someone to put some music in the game for free, or call Spotify up and see if we can break new ground and thus let people race to all of the music that exists in the world?

     

    I’ll start by saying I love your passion and am excited to see a new Burnout style game coming out. I was (and still am) a Burnout super-fan!

     

    I’ve also only played a little bit of DD. Can’t form an opinion yet, so I’m not reflecting on the game itself.

     

    but the quote above has kind of angered me a bit for two reasons. What you’re saying there is that you want music in the game but you want to pass the cost of having music in the game onto your customers. This is a Spotify Premium service, we pay to use it.

     

    Thats not to mention that people might have chosen a different service to subscribe to or don’t want to sub to a music stream service at all.

     

    The other thing is that you’re making an arcade racer. A huge part of arcade racers is that ‘feeling’. Setting the tone. A lot of that is lost when any old music is just whacked on top. This stuff is never really implemented well either. It’s not like the tracks start as the race does. Or the music levels change depending on what’s happening. It’s like having the radio on while playing a game.

     

    I get what you’re saying about budget and team size. It’s got to be frustrating as hell but for the most part consumers don’t look into that stuff. To them it’s a game that they’ve bought for £30 and there will be some expectation that comes along with that.

    I don’t know, to move it somewhere reasonable if another person has left it somewhere stupid, say, perched on the arm of a couch above a bowl of cereal; to plug it in and charge it; to clean dead skin cell paste out of the cracks and crevices with a toothbrush; to examine its sleek form with wonder; to give it a good lick; to insert the smooth, lozenged handle into a primed anus. 

     

    It’s a free country man, I can do whatever I want with it, even if it does not involve turning on and using the PlayStation. My girlfriend is famous in our house for fast-forwarding through films or turning on the PlayStation by leaning on it or sitting on it or throwing a sweater on it with reckless abandon. 

     

    yeeeep. Picking it off the floor to put it in a drawer. Moving it out of the way to get to the switch/xbox controller. Digging it out from under the sofa cushion because the boy has been playing Lego The Incredibles for the 400th hour. That sort of thing.

    Erm, No.  If it woke the PS4 on picking it up then fine, but you actually have to be pressing the PS Button to switch it on. I have myself and 2 kids who have their own controllers, I've never seen it turned on by mistake. But the ability to be able to turn on the machine with a quick press is genius. 

     

    I think this is a great feature. I'll fight anyone who does not agree

     

     

    Bah! You caught me out. I was lying about the whole thing. Sorry. It’s never happened to me let alone all the time.

     

    I nearly got away with that one.

     

    I don’t even own a PlayStation 4.

    Am I missing something? I thought you had to press the PS button?

     

    Yeah but it sits proud of the controller. Meaning the slightest nudge and you hear they irritating beep and the pad turns your front room into a wedding disco.

     

    As as amazing as some of these consoles are there’s some awful shit about each and everyone on of them.

     

    i adore my switch but fuck me that kick stand and game card flap can fuck right off.

    I found out that there's a woman in my office who is a former World no.2 Tetris player (for some PC-based version of Tetris). She offered to win some games for me, the cheeky minx. I asked her for some tips and she said "play well"... so basically "git gud" :-D

     

    Pressed further, she said "don't target random, cos that's pointless and make sure you have badges going into the last 10". Like I can think about stuff like that when I'm going into top 10!

     

    I’ll say it again, Random is in no way pointless! During the early stages I use it a lot. It keeps you off the radar for a bit.

     

    it changes with every junk line you send so you won’t be targeted by people set to ‘attackers’ for long. You won’t get many badges so the badge attackers won’t be going for you either. Keep your wall to 8 or so lines and you’ll be off of the KO attackers hit list too.

     

    I don’t aim for badges until there’s about 40 or so left. Then I try and nick as many as I can so I can go for it in the top ten.

     

    a full set of badges is pretty essential in the top ten these days.

    You only get that bonus if you switch to 'attackers' and there are multiple people targeting you. 

    The best I've managed is 4th, I think the issue is I'm just not that great at Tetris! It probably doesn't help that I usually only get time to play it after 11 at night, when I'm too tired for the level of focus it requires in the last 10.

     

    Oh shit. That’s useful to know! Cheers

    There's something really fucked about this. I had eight People targeting me tight at the start. 

     

    There's no way that should be able to happen unless they haven't balanced it at all. 

     

    Not sure if this was in there from the start but noticed I was getting a bonus while being attacked by a bunch of people last night. Even single lines was getting me a three clear (I had no badges). 

     

    Obviously this doesn’t help you right at the start or if you’re keeping your wall low but it highlights the importance of making sure you have some clear lines up and ready to go to fend off attacks.

  8. Don’t know what all the fuss is about when I was a kid I played soldier of fortune. Only the first level over and over again so I could shoot off the arms first and all that. Had to take photos of the screen on my dads camera back then. Explain to the people in Boots that it was just a game. Played grand theft auto and just drove on the pavement (sidewalk they call it). Sure if a game had a flame thrower then I’d get a bit hard but who didn’t? I liked it when characters got crushed. It’s good that graphics have got better imo so you can see more stuff never did me any harm. Turned my sisters house in The Sims into a torture chamber. All in good fun obviously. Manhunt was my favourite. Used to play it in the park with my mates. Kids can handle this stuff mate.

  9. Trouble aside, what a game that was last night. A proper Millwall performance. To kick 5 Premier League teams out of the cup at the den in a row is some achievement.

     

    Wish we played like that more in the league!

    Sometimes I'm not sure even what I've done wrong, or the response feels disproportionate. I was in Valentine (it always seems to be Valentine where I get into the most trouble), and popped into the sheriff's office. There was a bounty in the cell, a woman who I'd put there earlier in the game. Maybe she'd escaped and got caught again, I dunno. Anyway, I talk to her and make a joke about breaking her out. Sends one of the sheriff's deputies into a tizzy, and even though I try to defuse the situation (80% of the time that never seems to work), he starts shooting.

     

    Fuck this. I swear to God, I must've ended up slaughtering half the town in the end. Bullets were flying everywhere once the battle spilled out onto the streets. Lawmen, townsfolk, they were all gunning for me. The battle took in every area of Valentine.

     

    And all because I made a joke.

     

    For some reason it made me think of the real ultimate power website where a ninja kills an entire town because someone opened a window, or dropped a spoon.

     

     

    Never has a game represented twitter so well.
