They changed the Driveclub PS+ upgrade to be permanent, which makes sense.

...really thinking about Sunset Overdrive a lot right now. I'll wait till it comes out to see if it's a good game.

Insomniac is like zero for 20 on attempts to make a good video game. What would make anybody think they would start now?

Because Sunset Overdrive looks like a return to proper form instead of either a generic FPS or a generic TPS.

It's nice to know that if Microsoft blows us away this E3 that there's now a cheaper option to get an Xbone.

Return to what proper form? There was never a proper form to return to.

I wasn't gonna get an XBO before, still no plans, but good on them for throwing that gimmicky crap out.

The PS3 Ratchets are like the PS2 ones except way more refined and way prettier. So if your a Grinch about those you'll probably be a Grinch about these as well.

To be clear I don't think Ratchets trump any Mario game(or whatever Rydog says) but I think they're a lot of fun and I some times prefer them to Mario games.

But Insomniac is an awesome team who are complete pussies and never assert themselves to make games they want to make. If it's not Ratchet then somewhere down the line they second guess themselves and they fuck it up. R3 was great, they stuck to their guns and it worked out. If they make Sunset with reckless abandon then it'll be good.

Insomniac has been piggybacking on gaming trends their entire existence. Samey 3D action platformers, tired first person shooters. Zero original thought put into any of them. This new piece of crap takes elements from all their old derivative crap and slathers it in one of the most garish art styles I've seen in my entire life. Why Sony fantards are crying over losing this shitdev is fucking beyond comprehension.

You hug the WiiU because it has an equally un-utilized and pointless peripheral that they force their customers to pay for? I think the 3D in the 3DS is roughly as useless other than a couple first party titles. At least it probably doesn't raise the price much on that device.

I generally agree though. When I saw the announcement today I momentarily thought 'Oh I should consider getting one now' then realized there's still nothing on there I care about that isn't already on or coming to PC which is my preferred platform.

It's Ryan talking bout Nintendo. I wasn't sure about the irony. Seems you're giving him the benefit of the doubt.

One of the features promised at launch is finally finding it's way to PS4. When? I dunno.

Besides Suspend and Resume there's a few more tidbits out there.

Respected Octopus and suspected Bot, Wario64 is sharing a few of them.
-"delete trophies with 0%, search trophies details on internet, screenshots of scenes w/ trophies"
-"share play 60fps"
-"You can share trophy details and its screenshots too"

I know people are all "muh promised featurelist!" because this is the internet, and we must act like entitled snobs. But I could literally give two shits about any of those missing features.

So suspend/resume has finally come to the PS4. I've tried it a couple of times today between The Order: 1886 and Bloodborne and it seems to be working pretty well. Also with this lastest firmware it seems like there's improved stability/performance with the messaging as well. I sent something over to Dakazu earlier and it seems as though he got it and replied fairly quickly.

Suspend is amazing. I can put my PS4 in sleep mode and when I boot back into the XMB it's only one button press to get right back to where I was in Bloodborne!

Also everyone should go to themes and add black shadowing. It makes all the XMB text super easy to read

April Fools is coming. Anyone with a PS4 or Vita as well as a significant/roommate/whoever should prank them by reversing all the inputs on their controllers.

This is totally evil and I'd expect nothing less from you. I love it.






Please don't mention this to MrsTotoro as I don't want my stuff to be complete boned come April 1.

Everything old is new again (like this thread!) with the "Neo" and "Scorpio" news happening.

Of course this is the only thing I can think of when I hear them talking about the Xbox One "Scorpio".

This news really bums me out. I run my antenna through my xbox one, and I've been consistently wondering when they were going to finally release this feature.

It's actually impressive how bad the xbone is. There isn't a single thing it does that the ps4 does better. I take that back, Kevin and I concluded that the controller's haptic feedback on the triggers was something the ps4 doesn't have. But I haven't cared about fucking vibration in a game since freaking Perfect Dark. :lol: Just everything about it is slow, and clunky, and obtrusive, and poorly designed, and not user friendly. Like, the fact that my controllers take AA batteries in 2016. OR how it manages to be bigger and fatter than my PS4, even though it doesn't even have a built-in power supply. OR how the game I bought on disk took friggin two hours to install (longest install time I had to deal with on a ps4 game before it being playable was like, 10 minutes). :lol: And here's the biggest problem:

In the middle of playing Overwatch today, all of a sudden my game screen dimmed. Inexplicably. I asked the guys I was playing with and apparently that's just a thing with some xbones. Whaaaat? I had to reboot the game to fix it. Incredible! Absolutely incredible.

Sorry to hear that Cross. I think it's the right decision for them, since the number of people who care about that is probably miniscule and they can put their resources to better use elsewhere. But it sucks when you were promised something and they don't follow through.
