I still don’t want Watch_Dogs

posted in: Game News 0

After watching the latest round of Watch_Dogs footage, I will continue not to purchase Ubisoft open world games.

It’s just so familiar. I can’t help but feel like it’s the same Ubisoft open world formula with a fresh coat of paint a handful of new tricks. The “Hacking” doesn’t appear to be nothing more than long range context prompts. There’s a lot of things to interact with but it doesn’t look particularly thrilling to me.

The multiplayer looks more interesting to me. The invasion idea sounds like it could be really neat. I just wonder how long the novelty will last before everyone picks out the “hacker” within 10 seconds of an invasion.

Watch_Dogs debuts on May 27th on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.

Battlefield 4 PS4 MP Report #1

posted in: Reviews 0


Everything written in this Eurogamer summary of the Battlefield 4 situation is true. The game still has its share of game crashes, lag spikes and other bugs that are unbecoming of a release of its caliber.

Is the game playable? What’s there to like or not like about it? Is it really just Battlefield 3.5? Here are my answers

Is Battlefield 4 (PS4) playable?

Yes and no.

Checkpoint: Service Interruption Edition


QSF5 was down for a few days after the site’s host suspended the account. It was temporarily renewed but I’m in the process migrating to a new host. During that service interruption a number of things transpired.

Battlefield 4 is playable… sorta?

DICE and EA decided to move ahead on their map pack plans despite the fact Battlefield 4 is still a mess across all platforms. If they wish to make amends and not garner more votes for “America’s worst company” for the third straight year, they should give the Second Assault map pack to all players for free.

Along with new content, stability and bug fixes continue to trickle through in the form of client and server side patches. On the PlayStation 4, there’s less lag and far fewer crashes. Unfortunately the single player campaign still has a save corrupting bug that keeps me at bay. I know Battlefield games aren’t known for their single player campaigns but it’s just sad knowing that all aspects of this game are plagued with issues.

Still, the games I managed to squeeze in with my brother and friends have been enjoyable.

Using one PlayStation Plus membership on two consoles

One of the most disappointing revelations during the Sony’s 2013 E3 press conference was the confirmation of paying for online multiplayer. I didn’t want to pay for online multiplayer but in the end I decided $49.99 for online player along with the offerings of PlayStation Plus was worth it.

My brother and I were all set to activate our own PlayStation Plus memberships when I recalled a few salient points made by Sony:

  • Games you download can be played by users who share your PS4™ system, such as your family and friends. You do not have to log in to the system for other users to play these games.
  • If you join PlayStation®Plus, benefits such as online multiplayer features that come with that membership can be enjoyed by users who share your PS4™ system. You do not have to log in to the system for other users to enjoy these benefits.
  • Games you purchase can be downloaded and played on any PS4™ system if you sign in to PSN. There is no limit on the number of systems you can use. * Only you can start games that you download.
  • If you join PlayStation®Plus, you can sign in to PSN from any PS4™ system and enjoy your membership benefits.

With those facts in mind, it was certainly possible that my brother and I could share a single PlayStation Plus membership. This is how we set it up:
