Gee, the SJWs at Shittygon lambaste the film? Shocker!

Given North Korea doesn't approve of the movie, it's a clear given that the SJWs don't. That must mean it's pretty good!

so which kind of authoritarian thought control is better? foreign or domesticated?

How is saying that something is gross and not very funny "thought control?"
If them criticizing the movie is thought control, isn't your criticizing their review also thought control?

Are we in Inception?

you'll never get it - you can go ahead and stop asking questions as if you are still capable of logic or rational thought

Well, I mean one of us is confused and overreacting, not sure it's me...

I wonder how MS and Sony are going to make this right for people. The outages kind of ruined the gift experience for people getting those systems or games. Its going to leave a bitter taste and possibly some screaming kids. Sigh, why do people get off on DDOS?

They don't owe anyone anything. Douchebags that think they are owed something obviously don't comprehend that there is only so much companies can do to defend against DDoS attacks. You want to point a finger? Point it at the low life little shits that deserve a severe beating for pressing a button and then act like they are doing the world of favor.


They need to be more forthcoming with what is going on. The networks are still down to the point where you can't even play the games properly. I am not expecting free DLC or a game out of this but I want to see an actual acknowledgement of the problems and how they plan to address it in the future. As of right it feels like they are burying their head in the sand and hoping the problems go away and frankly that is unacceptable.

Over capacity you can address. Ddos not so much. Building enough capacity to avoid that once a year ddos makes little sense.

You know what's great about a game that will only auto-save into a single slot? When said game STOPS saving.

After patch 1.6, Far Cry 4 no longer saves. EVER. Total time spent testing patch: 0.0000 minutes. FUCK YOU, Ubisoft.

HHAAAHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Oh man, that save system...

Like I said to you before, their solution for me was to reload an old save. YOU DON'T KEEP OLD SAVES, UBISOFT!

Good response. Useful. You call something a "dumbass idea," then when numbers prove it to be a necessity, you have no response.

Great. Again, sometimes you need to think a little bit before you assume you're brilliant and someone at Sony is an idiot. They not only have more information than you but thought longer about it.

Your comment just wasn't well thought out.

Jivaro wrote on Dec 24, 2014, 15:27:
Beamer, sometimes I think you just write contrary shit to be contrary. Not so much trolling as you just feel like arguing. This is one of those times.

If they are serious about people even bothering to try Playstation Now they should put the controllers in. If all they want is another "feature" on the outside of the box, than they shouldn't. On the off chance that they do actually want people to use it however, they would than make the money back on the controller by getting people to use the service. You know...like about a gazillion other services do when they offer the hardware for cheap but charge for the service.

3D failed because 3D sucks. If the goggles hadn't been included it would have failed even faster. If people deem that Playstation Now sucks it will fail as well. Without the controller, it will fail that much faster.

I never said anything about 3D failing. I said that they can't afford to give too pack-ins that few people will use.

Fine, want another example? Why do so few peripherals include HDMI cables? Buy a blu-ray player, odds are you also need to buy an HDMI cable. Why? Because those cost money and most people already have them, so spending the $1 per unit to give something not everyone needs doesn't make sense.

A controller would cost Samsung, what, $30 to include? Maybe it costs Sony that. It costs someone that. Multiply that by even just 1,000 TVs sold and that's a pretty huge expense.

For what? How many people will use that? Including the PS World software takes next to no money. Including the controller takes a lot of money. And giving it to people that have no interest is just insane.

You're right, a lot of hardware is subsidized because people will buy software. But that's dedicated hardware! If I buy a PS4 Sony is pretty damn well sure I'll buy games. If I buy a Samsung TV Sony isn't.

Fine, let's do this.
Let's assume Samsung sells 1000 of their TVs with the Sony PSNow.
What percentage of people buying that TV do you think will care about gaming on it? Samsung is already selling these TVs to an enormous amount of people, right?
I was extremely generous when I said 10%. If it's even 3% I'll be shocked, but fine, let's say 10%.
Now, how much do you think they'll spend on games? PS Now currently has 2 options: Either a $2.99 per 3 hour charge, or a $7 for 7 days.
And Sony shares that with publishers, and some goes to the actual back-end costs, and some will probably go to Samsung. Let's just say 30% is profit for Sony, which also seems high.

So, we have a cost of $30 per controller, going out to 1,000 people, or $30,000 cost.
We have 100 people playing.
Sony needs to make back $30,000 from 100 people, or $3,000 per person, or 428 games rented for a week, or 3,000 hours rented. Actually, that's just revenue, so multiply that out by 3 for profit.

Seriously, now.
You think this is something that will happen?

This is why I laugh when a lot of people here say things. It's like you don't think them out. "Sony needs to include the controller, they'll get the money back!" No, Jivaro, no they will not. Those controllers cost way too much money for Sony to just give them out for free to people that will never, ever use them.

And do you know what would happen to those 900 controllers Sony gave out for free that no one used? eBay! Which means Sony will sell 900 fewer controllers at retailers.

Putting Playstation Now in TVs is a brilliant idea. Selling the controller seperately is a dumbass idea.

If you want people who don't already own a Playstation to actually try Playstation Now you can't put a 55 dollar "door charge" on it when they just bought a brand fucking new TV. Sony, sometimes I love you but sometimes you are just the dumbest company on the face of the planet.

You know that most 3D TVs only came with one set of goggles, right?
The margins on these TVs aren't very high. Putting a controller that sells for $55 in a TV that only, what, 10% of people tops may use makes no sense at all.

At all.

Destiny hype was there before the marketing. It was an entirely new property by a newly single Bungie. I know that may not mean much here, but Bungie basically defined how console FPS play, and console FPS games outsell PC FPS games by a wide margin.

Halo, to a console gamer, is kind of a high water benchmark. So seeing what Bungie did without Microsoft was, on its own, something that carried an enormous amount of hype.

And a lot of people like it. I did the beta, and the actual game mechanics were great. It took all of 30 seconds to realize how nice firing a gun feels in that game. Then came all the MMO stuff. Going to a large level but only doing a small part of it, then going to a large base that unreasonably has the 4 people you need to talk to spread out, then going back to that large level and doing another small chunk, etc. I hated it. But I hated WoW and every other MMORPGs I've ever touched.

If you like games that have really good shooting, and you like MMORPGs, I can see why you'd like this game. And plenty of people like both of those. And plenty of people like Destiny.

I'm just not one of them. But, again, I hate MMORPGs.

Well, the game had two main components, plot-wise:

1) A zombie apocalypse that turned some people into things fun to kill and other people into things really not very much fun to kill at all

2) A story of a man's redemption vs Man's redemption

I think #1 has more stories that can be told. #2, thematically, can be built upon, but I would rather them not.

Last of Us 2. No. Just no. That story doesn't need to be told again.

As long as it doesn't involve the characters from the first, I'm fine with it.


Yup. I am sure there are more stories that can be told, but needs different characters and probably themes.

I enjoyed some of the game, particularly the characters. I didn't enjoy all the sneaking without a backup plan, which was much or most of the early game.

Gamers don't learn, fuck we saw the rise of MMO's (when we the elite gamers knew they were DRM games and thought MMO players were chumps during ultima online days). Then game steam that trojan horsed it's way into existence through half-life and counterstrike. Then came World of warcraft and charging money for changning servers/pets, and then league of legends where you 'buy' skins for a game you never fucking own. Mankind is a retarded monkey.

If anything it proves mankind is at subhuman levels of intelligence.

Never trust someone calling himself "elite."

Apparently Beamer didn't pay any attention to what was really reported, and provided a better answer than you. I'll give you a hint -- the "Partisan" shit was the entire reason the hack was so embarrassing, making fun of Obama/blacks with racial overtones by liberals would be the exact reason.

Oh, enlighten me, what was reported and how does it let you magically know the truth?
And why did Sony do this yo themselves?


And Jesus, man, your last sentence.

We come from different decades, Blue, and BiT was something I never watched, but we share the bond of growing up with repeated viewings of something on WPIX.

God, I will always miss WPIX Saturday Afternoon Movies. The opening to those stands in my head as strongly as the extended opening to HBO movies. Channel 11 was an absolute landmark.
