  1. With the next gen about to hit alot of people have been posting up their gamertag in preperation for creating/updating their friends list for players who own their console of choice. The lists we have in the online folder are looking a little old so I thought this might be a good chance to refresh things a bit. To help with that I have created a google docs form and spreadsheet. The form is for entering your details and the spreadsheet contains the list of people who have entered their details. The links are: Form Players list You should be able to access both with these links but the player list is view only (you can take a copy of you wish). I can share editing rights with other who want to help keep at eye on things. I will post this in the online folder as well and see how we get on. Any suggestions please post here. Please note, ideally this list is for people who either already have a next gen machine or are getting one at launch, its not a general list of everyon'e online ID's
  2. My mate just picked up a XBone there and was telling me the downloads are >30gb. Fair enough, but my fucking internet will melt if I was downloading these sorts of files - its bad enough as it is. So, the question I'm really wondering about is - do you think we're likely to start seeing demo discs again? Seems like a good opportunity for the mags to put together HD video content / demos so we don't have to download 1TB of demo data.
  3. Ok, this is just to see where we are, as a forum of gamers. Where have you invested your cash? Have you plumped for Mario? Have you Rysen for the Xbox One? Have you fallen under the shadow of the PS4? What is Rllumk's split across the three new consoles? (I'm obviously on about PS4 and Xbox One pre-orders here, but I'm sure you know what I mean)
  4. Global recession, rising cost of games™, domination of smartphone/tablets, the rise of the casual market and free to play / pay to win gaming. Vitas and Wii Us that just won't sell. The Xbone being laughed off stage, the PS4 positioned as the last hope of hardcore gaming but with few announced titles to really back it up. Me, I like shiny new stuff. I've been begging for more POWAR for ages and eventually moved to PC when I got tired of waiting. And there have been many more who did the same, discovering that Windows 7, Steam and full controller support removed most of the PC related horrors of the past with manually editing config files and drivers and clashing/crashing hardware mostly disappeared. The Xbone and PS4 now have an uphill battle on their hands to win us over and draw us back in their tightly regulated, expensive, closed off "ecosystems" with console/system exclusives. So what do you reckon? Is the next gen fucked? Or will it bring a new golden dawn of gaming upon us?
  5. Gamecom Official Website Conferences: Sony: Times: August 20th 6:00 PM(UK ) / 7:00 PM (EU) Live stream: http://gamescom.eu.playstation.com/en_GB Live Stream: http://blog.us.plays...nce-live-today/ EA: Times: August 20th 3:00 PM(UK ) / 4:00 PM (EU) Live stream: http://www.ea.com/uk/gamescom-2013-ea-press-conference MS: Times: August 20th Live blog: http://www.lazygamer...wcase-liveblog/ http://embed.scribbl...meId=12676&ss=1 (With comments) http://embed.scribbl...0&ThemeId=12676 (Just news) Attendees & Lineup: Sony: Sony have said that Gamescom will focus on showcasing PS4's launch lineup along with updates to PS3 & Vita. We do know a much anticipated (is it 30fps or 60fps) build of Driveclub will be playable, along with a fresh demo of Infamous: Second Son which sadly won't be playable on the floor. PS4: Infamous: Second Son (PS4) Drive Club (PS4) Knack (PS4) Killzone: Shadowfall (PS4) PS3 Beyond: Two Souls (PS3) Gran Turismo 6 (PS3) Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix (PS3) Ratchet & Clank: Nexus (PS3) Wonderbook: Book Of Potions (PS3) Wonderbook: Diggs Nightcrawler (PS3) Wonderbook: Walking With Dinosaurs (PS3) Puppeteer (PS3) Vita: Destiny Of Spirits (Vita) Killzone: Mercenary (Vita) Tearaway (Vita) Their conference is also promising launch details of the PS4, and hopefully a Vita price cut along with some fresh game announcements. Microsoft: With MS opting not to stream their conference, rumours of a new Crackdown unveiling are looking unlikely. They have however said that they will be focussing on a 'unique exclusive' and offering the press some hands on time. Xbox One: Dead Rising 3 Fable Anniversary Forza 5 Killer Instinct Kinect Sports: Rivals Max: The curse Of Brotherhood Ryse Zoo Tycoon Xbox 360: World Of Tanks Nintendo: All eyes will be on Nintendo's Wii U lineup at Gamescom, and to be fair, in spite of there being no conference Nintendo are brining a respectable Gamescom showing: Wii U: Pikmin 3 The Wonderful 101 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Sonic Lost World Wii Party U Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Super Mario 3D World Wii Karaoke U Mario Kart 8 3DS: Pokémon X and Pokémon Y Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Ubisoft: Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Watch Dogs Tom Clancy’s The Division Splinter Cell Blacklist The Crew Just Dance 2014 Rayman Legends Might & Magic Duel of Champions Online Card Game Might & Magic Heroes Online Might & Magic X Legacy The Might Quest for Epic Loot Activision: Call of Duty: Ghosts Destiny Skylanders SWAP Force Angry Birds: Star Wars Square Enix: Final Fantasy XIV: A Real Reborn Thief, Murdered: Soul Suspect Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX Deus Ex: The Fall Bethesda: The Elder Scrolls Online Wolfenstein: The New Order The Evil Within Deep Silver: Saints Row 4 Killer Is Dead X Rebirth Secret Files : Sam Peters Lost Horizon 2 The Dark Eye : Memoria Konami: PES 2014 Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Other: Batman: Arkham Origins Eve Online Dark Souls 2 Dust 514 Hawken Hotline Miami 2 Payday 2 Mad Max Space Hulk Star Citizen War of the Vikings The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt WWE 14 Thanks to VG247 for sourcing this list.
  6. http://www.edge-online.com/news/gaijin-games-on-why-war-thunder-isnt-coming-to-xbox-one/ It sounds as if Sony are allowing (or rather not blocking) cross-platform Steam Vs PS4 play, whereas Microsoft are specifically not allowing it as policy. Given that mobile devices, android consoles, Steam on Mac and Linux etc all exist, might we see a situation where multiplayer game audiences are split into two groups - absolutely everyone on one side, and Xbox players fenced-in on the other? Is cross platform something people want to see, or would you prefer to know everyone is playing with the same control scheme, frame rate etc? Personally I feel like cross platform is a great thing, providing you can filter servers by "mouse only" or "pad only" to avoid a bloodbath. Certainly for asynchronous, co-operative or less twitchy games I would much rather have a larger player count to matchmake with, and would love to be able to buy games on PC or PS4 and play with my friends on either. Thoughts?
  7. So over in the Xbone thread, there's debate about whether Microsoft's pack-in deal offering a free copy of FIFA 14 with all Xbox One pre-orders is a stunning deal that appears to everyone or a insignificant thing that only boring people would like. Let's do some science! Where do you stand?
  8. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-08-13-xbox-one-controller-will-be-compatible-with-pcs-next-year Widely expected, of course, but good to have it confirmed.
  9. Made another vid after the DRM U-turn,. Hope you like it (mods if you feel it should go in the uturn folder pse move) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isInZw_ZbsE&feature=youtu.be
  10. This deserved its own topic I feel as it might have been brushed over in the others. So what was the one great feature that was being communicated outside of the one disaster. The family sharing right- but the way it worked was never clear- the wording around it was vague and no one was left certain which lead to loads of different interpretations of how it worked. Who was allowed to play what on your list of 10 and at what times? Still sounded obviously too good to be true and kind of counter to the idea that the DRM was obviously to control game revenue. That was the whole point. Why do that and then allow you to share your game in such a manner that it might dissuade 9 other sales? Especially when Sony who when they messed up with the PS3, offered for the LIMITED PSN library the ability to share with up to 5 people fully until this was taken away as publishers like Capcom were not happy with this freedom. Sure, maybe only two people were allowed to play at a time but for a console that allowed you to do this with ALL copies of games (not just digital) - it could potentially cut sales in half after the DRM measures were in place again to control revenue. A little more confusion came when Major Nelson in an interview with Angry Joe who said "Can we play multiplayer games at the same time?" Nelson replied "split screen sure" which made this bizarre single player/mp split come in. He uses the words "check it out" and I've heard "try" as well in other interviews, check here at around 03:51. "It's not like you're buying ONE copy for all TEN members" So the whole thing was a little fishy. Before E3 hit, Boozy's favourite leak source CBOAT on neo-gaf said the DRM measures were worse than they were letting on. Then of course the whole changes kicked in after the poor reception and Sony destroying them at E3, and they dropped it all. Including the family sharing. This led some people to believe that the backwards shortsighted idiots who didn't like the xbox one DRM suddenly had denied them the chance to buy one game on launch day for 4 quid each with their gaming cartels with 9/10 other friends. Boooooooooooo! Why gamers why? Why did you deny us the policy that completely contradicts the whole point of the DRM? Turns out there was potentially a reason why MS was being so vague, why Major Nelson said "you're not buying one copy for all ten members" because you're not. Words like "try" and "check it out". Because they're full game demos. If you're not the primary license holder, apparently you get limited access to the full games OF AN HOUR. Full game trials essentially. http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=598291 That's why they took it out. Because they communicated it so badly people naively thought it was time they were going to get games for a tenth of the purchase price- at a time when Cliffy B is moaning that the current cost of dev games is struggling so the xbox one DRM was the answer- it obviously was if it didn't allow you to do that. Because it didn't. Anyway, what sneaky shady motherfuckers they are. Boozy, Simms whatever, neg button is there --------------------------------------> Thanks for listening!
