WWE 2K15 – You want more? – Video Dailymotion

Wed, Dec 30th, 2015

I somehow don’t think that the coach/training guy shouting at you is related to anything you do, because even when I dominate the match he still shouts out stuff like “I know 10 guys who want this more than you!”. The aim of the career mode (that’s what this is, by the way.) is to give a good, balanced match, it’s about how well YOU perform, you have to win every match, as always, but you get extra points when you vary your moves and reverse a lot, which is cool, I guess, but yeah, I think this coach was just made to shout at you randomly…

WWE 2K15 – Okay game, okay… – Video Dailymotion

Wed, Dec 30th, 2015

So yeah, I’ve started playing WWE 2k15 on the PS4, and yes, I am fully aware that 2k156 is out, but unlike other yearly sports titles, the WWE games give you a reason to dig up older games, they have stories to follow, and have your custom character go through, but I digress.

I actually really enjoy what I have played so far, it’s not exactly No Mercy or Smackdown Shut your Mouth, but it’s fun in it’s own way in that it’s way more realistic, I usually think that the more realistic something is, the less fun it is, but this is an exception, somehow they have gotten past the uncanny valley, the matches look real and are fun to watch on their own. I love pressing a button or two and letting my wrestlers do all of the work!

However, as you can see, it’s not without it’s problems…

Well, so much for them vowing to push the Wii U to it’s limits… I know this is an old article, but I had just found it, and I shouldn’t have been surprised…

Tony Hawk’s® Pro Skater™ 5 – Ouch… ? – Video Dailymotion

Wed, Dec 30th, 2015

It appears Robomodo didn’t fix every glitchy bail in the game… okay, I guess that’s impossible, even Neversoft’s games had their fair share of glitches, but I thought this was worth sharing nevertheless!

Tony Hawk’s® Pro Skater™ 5 – (Censored) Fatality? – Video Dailymotion

Wed, Dec 30th, 2015

I was doing this goal in Pro Skater 5 where if I didn’t keep landing tricks, my skaters head would keep getting bigger and eventually explode, as you might have guessed, it’s more comical than anything, but the timing of this one is perfect, it makes it look so violent that the game censored it! (Like Classic Sub Zero’s Fatality in Mortal Kombat Trilogy)

Rant – Xbox live and PS Plus – Mandatory pay-to-play multiplayer

Mon, Dec 28th, 2015

I’m going to start this off with an experience I’ve recently had with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 for the PS4, which I got for Christmas. I found out that the game has this awesome feature where you can play career mode and you see other players playing through career mode as well, and some goals/missions you can even player co-op! It was pretty awesome, and a lot of fun. I got a PS plus trial just to do this basic, and not needed feature. Now that trial has run out, and now I have to fork out £4 a month or pay £15-£40 upfront to do this…

Seriously, Sony, what the f*ck? What happened to free online play? That was a massive advantage the PS3 had over the Xbox 360! The PS Vita even has free online-play, so why doesn’t the PS4?!

Apparently the reason is because they needed to compensate for their new flashy features they added such as watching other people play games or even streaming a game onto your console if someone else is playing and you want to, and also things like online cloud storage… okay, but what about people who only want to play online and don’t care about those features? They would be paying for sh*t they aren’t going to use!

I could understand back in the late 90s and very early 2000s where the Dreamcast and Xbox did this, because it was a new thing, and I’m guessing doing things like that was expensive, because you needed servers dedicated to the console, I guess, but by the time online play became more mainstream, it seemed like an obsolete idea. The PS2, Gamecube (whatever games it had online), PS3, Wii and Wii U all had free online, and the guys behind them were doing just fine financially, so why would it be needed now?!

Again, all I would want to do is use this cool feature on THPS5, but I have to pay for game streaming, live let’s play features and cloud storage just to do this?! I’m never going to use any of those features!

I remember when this thing was first announced, my friend, who previously had a 360, reacted to it like it was no big deal. I’m guessing because he was used to it…

That’s probably why Sony did this, they new thanks to the controversy with the Xbox One at the time, many 360 owners were moving to Sony, so they saw money in this, and decided to treat them as sh*t as Microsoft did for money!

Smart? Maybe, but that doesn’t make it good, though!

Let’s imagine a scenario where you can to pay some guy “protection” money, otherwise, he gets to batter you with a baseball bat. This goes on for years, and maybe the original guy stops this for one reason or another (e.g. he dies or got arrested), and then another guy jumps in and does the same thing. You’d be used to that treatment by then, does that make this behaviour okay? No, of f*cking course it doesn’t!

“But PS Plus is a good deal!” Not when you HAVE to pay for it for something unrelated to why it’s a good deal!

I’ll create another scenario for this argument, but I’ll tell this story differently, try to imagine you enter a shop because you are away from home and need the toilet. (You probably already see where this is going…)

“Hey,” you say to the cashier, “Can I use your toilet? I’m bursting!”
“Would you like to buy this deal we have going on where if you purchase this bottle of Mountain Dew, you get a free bag of Doritos!”
“No thanks, I just need to go to the toilet.”
“Well, you need to get this deal, otherwise, you can’t use the toilet.”
“What the f**k?! No! F**k off!”
“Well, I’m afraid you can’t use our toilets, so you can either leave the store or I’m calling the police!”

…Okay, both of those analogies are a little extreme, as online play in of itself isn’t a mandatory human right (Unless the internet access thing that was added to the list of human rights count!), and the consequences aren’t that extreme, but I got my point across, right?

Bottom line, paying for online is not needed! You’re a greedy piece of sh*t if you charge for it! F*ck you Sony, and f*ck you Microsoft! I’m not giving youse a penny for online play! *sigh*, I wish they still made the Call of Duty games or THPS5 for Wii U…

This is a very interesting video, gives you a lot to think about with this kind of game. It’s a sneaky yet interesting idea… I have no mind of my own, do I?
