  Ubi's Monopoly scam.
Posted by: frostface - 12-17-2014, 09:17 PM - Forum: PlayStation 4 - No Replies

Monopoly is available on the PS4 and it's awesome. I have to get that out of the way early because there's a bit of a public service warning and rant coming on.

A couple of weeks ago I seen on the PSN store the family fun pack of Monopoly. Included in the pack was Monopoly Plus, My Monopoly and a Monopoly card game. Each can be bought separately but at the time of purchase only the packaged family pack was available, I guess the store was still updating. I spent 30euro for stuff I didn't really need as the basic game was all I really cared about. However I ended up with all the packs in one convenient bundle and went off recommending it to anyone and everyone.

A couple of people took me up on the recommendation and bought the basic Monopoly Plus game without all the extra fluff I'd purchased. We went to get a game in and when we'd invite each other, me with the family pack that includes the same game they own, we'd get directed to the PS store to buy the game again. Basically what had happened was that it recognised the version I had as a different game, it was the Family Fun Pack, theirs was Monopoly Plus.

I got onto Sony the next working day, explained the problem and got fobbed off that it's a different game and that there was nothing they could do for me. It really isn't a different game though. So Deadman (one of the dynamic duo that took up my recommendation) got onto Ubisoft and they gave him pretty much the same story.

So to sum up, technically we own the same game but because I spent a bit more to get the extra stuff that was packaged, I can't play with anyone who just bought the basic pack and vice versa. Now you could argue that with the pack I bought there's extra stuff that wouldn't be compatible with the basic pack the lads got without them splashing out. And that would be a fair point. Except that none of the extra stuff can be shared. For example, I used the My Monopoly to re-create the old Dublin Monopoly board I played as a kid. I can only play that board in local play, not online. Absolutely none of the extra stuff will benefit anyone else except me.

So if you're buying Monopoly and want to play with your friends online, make sure you all agree on getting either the Family Fun Pack or the basic pack.

  Sony snook DLNA onto PS4. (sort of)
Posted by: frostface - 12-17-2014, 08:59 PM - Forum: PlayStation 4 - No Replies

So there's a service called Plex that basically is a paid service that does what a DLNA servers does but up to now through a browser.

Theoretically that means we've had access to a DLNA server all along through the PS4 browser, up until tonight I wasn't aware of this but that's been an option for a long while I believe.

However, I found out about it today because a new dedicated Plex app has appeared on the PS4 for download and I've been messing about with it tonight (I did have to sign up to a Plex sub -4euro'ish a month) and it works really well once set up.

I'll try log on tomorrow and see if it's kept all the settings and how smooth it is getting back into it. I did do some messing about to get it to sync everything on my laptop but nothing that the average joe couldn't figure out.

  How about this for a "LIMITED EDITION"
Posted by: thepill - 11-14-2014, 01:41 AM - Forum: PlayStation 4 - No Replies

The release of each new "Limited Edition" console is always met with excitement, but mostly just by fans of that particular game that the console is modeled after. This got me thinking, what would grab the attention of not just fans of a certain GAME franchise, but also fans of a POP CULTURE franchise, and not just gamers, but non-gamers alike?

2015 will see the re-launch of a HIGHLY POPULAR gaming franchise that has been on hiatus for quite some time, and its release is also coinciding with the release of a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE that also has a HUGE cult following, spanning several generations.

Taking into consideration, the popularity of the recent COD: Modern Warfare Xbox One, I cant help but smile as imagine what it would feel like to open my very own STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT Limited Edition PS4, complete with Emperial Badging and either Darth Vader or StormTrooper themed DualShock4. Oh well, a guy can dream right?

  PSX Community YouTube Video Uploads.
Posted by: frostface - 10-30-2014, 12:46 PM - Forum: Gaming Discussion - No Replies

Since we're only now getting the ability to upload directly to YouTube direct from PS4 ( can you upload from XBONE already? We all know PC's have been doing it for years! ) and since this site is only compatible with YouTube videos, there's never been a better time to share your gameplay videos with this community than right now.

I'll get the ball rolling...

Lords of the Fallen Commander Boss fight. First real challenge in the game and this one took me a while to beat. In fact I if you look at my health at the end, one more hit and I was gone.

My next video is also from Lords of the Fallen and this one is a long one and to be honest it's boring to watch. I shared it however as it was the next boss fight after The Commander one I posted above and I some how managed to get him stuck. Normally as his health goes down he'll call in some back up and his attack's change. But in this video this didn't happen. He just stayed stuck and I just lost twenty minutes of my life hitting him from afar with my gauntlet power, which had to recharge after every shot so to say it was tedious would be an understatement.

  P.T. on the X1
Posted by: Amish Love Machine - 10-24-2014, 12:33 PM - Forum: Xbox One - No Replies

No, the PS4 demo thriller P.T didn't come out for the X1. However, someone made a version of it called R.T. using Project Spark, a tool for the console (and PC, I believe) that lets players create all kinds of games. Below is a trailer they made of it.

I've been having them for the past 2 weeks. It was 100% okay before that.

Have I been banned, or is it just technical issues?

I've tried logging in from multiple devices, all the same, when I enter my email and password, it just goes back to the home page with blank email and password fields and I'm not logged in.

I emailed the Technical Support guy but no word, does he even still look after this site?

  Destiny clan
Posted by: Amish Love Machine - 09-17-2014, 11:16 AM - Forum: PlayStation 4 - No Replies

For those who're playing Destiny, aren't in a clan, and are considering joining one, let me recommend the one I'm in. It's for another gaming community I'm a part of (Lousy at Gaming) and we're looking to get more people in who'd like to run strikes and raids. Last time I checked there were 3 or 4 of us who play Destiny on the PS4 so we could use more peeps! We also have some who are on the X1, PS3, and Xbox 360.

If you're interested, pop on over to our clan site on Bungie.net. It's a good, fun group of people.

  MS reported to be in talks to buy Mojang
Posted by: Amish Love Machine - 09-10-2014, 08:12 AM - Forum: Gaming Discussion - No Replies

This story from Total Xbox (which references the WSJ and Bloomberg) states that MS is in talks to buy Mojang, the studio that created Minecraft. If this happens, it doesn't look like MS would turn off PS3/4 access to the servers or no longer update it, based on what I read. I think it's a decent move of MS IFF they don't shut out PSx owners from the game. There's already a good base of PSx owners who have the game and it'd be folly for MS to suddenly cut them off.

  Warframe now available for the X1
Posted by: Amish Love Machine - 09-02-2014, 10:18 AM - Forum: Xbox One - No Replies

F2P shooter is now available on the Xbox One. I've played the PS4 version a little bit and, from what I played, it seems like a relatively solid game. I'm going to download it and try it out in a day or two to see if there are any noticeable differences.

  Alone In The Dark Reboot, anyone else excited?
Posted by: TheWorldEnds - 08-21-2014, 01:03 PM - Forum: Gaming Discussion - No Replies

Is anybody else excited about the news that Atari plans to reboot this series? It has had greatness and missteps but I really hope that they are serious this time and getting something at least approaching a AAA production.

I love seeing horror return these days and I've always liked Atari even through hard times (loved my Jaguar). Looking forward to the PAX reveal of Alone in the Dark: Illumination.

Also, still trying to find time to get to play New Nightmare on Dreamcast now that I've amped up the graphics. Those puzzles are puzzling and I love Lovecraft.
