I didn’t expect Battlefield 4’s campaign to be good, but I didn’t think it could be so frustrating and boring.
Belatedly finishing up Sunset (it works much better in Windows of course) and it’s painful to me how unprofessional the game wants
me to be.
I think I like Star Citizen’s flight model much better than Elite’s but it’s hard to tell at 5fps. And the gamepad controls are… unpleasant.
That was very nice, until they misused BB-8’s lighter #itsamiddlefinger
The Long Dark is beautiful but I’ll never understand why people want to play survival games. Is your own life too easy for you?
RT @LevelTwoRogue: Might just get American Truck Simulator and go full Duel on the first car to mildly inconvenience me.
Well that’s annoying. I think I might like Driveclub’s new “hardcore” handling model better than Forza’s — for which I just bought the Xbox.
Replaying Driveclub then going back to the Xbox made me realize how much better the PS4’s pad is, regarding stick and trigger resistance.
It’s one thing to see videos, and another to play it: the visuals of Rise of the Tomb Raider are incredible.
It’s a little thing that makes all the difference — I like spending time in AC:Syndicate because the characters are fucking human.
I also enjoy the new combat, and the visuals are prettier (less drab) than Unity’s. But traversal is still a huge pain.
I keep forgetting how much Forza Motorsport’s gamepad steering annoys me. It’s so weird that I don’t have the same issue with Horizon.
And because I’m an idiot, instead of calling it quits I’m now looking at how tolerable a cheap force-feedback-less steering wheel could be.

First ten minutes with The Division: as expected, it’ss beautiful and I wish I didn’t have to experience it as a loot-based RPG.
Because 1) it kills immersion and 2) comparing, equipping, modding items is fun with a mouse and a pain in the ass on a gamepad.
Listening to a professional Twitch streamer answer repetitive stupid questions about the game from the audience is excruciating.
Anyway, watching Twitch grind The Division confirms it’s not for me. I bet I’d have enjoyed its earlier, non-Destiny iteration.
Went to have one last look at New York, selected “Close Application” because the game failed to reconnect, and… it disappeared from my PS4.
I can’t be certain that I didn’t accidentally / unconsciously select “Delete” instead, because I think the confirmation prompts look the same.
RT @ben_throop: When you consider cost for VR, think about what you spend on airfare. That’s what you are already willing to pay to go somewhere. Once.
Twitching from PS4: wrong title in the tweet, correct title and game in the Dashboard, wrong title and game in the archived video.
And there seem to be complaints about that bug on the internet as far back as the introduction of the feature, FFS.
You don’t turn your nose on and off; wouldn’t it be more logical and interesting for FC:Primal’s smell-o-vision to be a permanent overlay?
Factorio seems so amazing, and its controls are so incredibly busted
Zero internal consistency to what a right vs. left click means, or to modifier keys, so you keep pressing the wrong button.
That’s the PlayStation VR’s killer app, isn’t it?
