  3. Thanks for shout out ! fyi its just ( ice 89 ) spelt messed up due to somebody beating me to normal spelling lol ! Great podcast again lads !

    Firstly rocket Leauge is incredible i ant pull away from it secondly the 15minute ban for leaving ranked game is heavy i have been penalized for drop outs also out of my control ???

    ive spent hours playing castle storm last night great game on vita recommend if nobodys played it.

    Quick question Why is Digital copies more expensive that Physical copies ?? i cant get to grips with it it lol

    for example digital games journey goes from A – B 

    Physical copie has to have case printed , Discs made then stored in warehouse , shipped around world  sureley making that process more costly?

    Thing with drop outs if that the majority of the time everyone drops out not just you and whatever the score is when you all disconnect is counted as the result.

  5. but it bans me from playing ranked for 15mins.. 🙁

    Wowsers chaps, a full 9 minutes and 30 seconds before any mention of video games! Is it possible that you manage even more irrelevant ramblings WITHOUT Tim? Truly everything I know is wrong…

    Fun as ever gents.

    Sad to hear of the demise of the Ouya. I nearly bought one, so I should thank Dan for mocking it so much and saving me £100 or so.

    Sorry Coleman…

    Has that been added in since the new patch?  I haven’t d.c. since the patch come out although the patch did break ranked play as you weren’t getting any rating points for winning (or loose any for loosing) and I have a couple of games last night were I didn’t get any points for winning (which could be awful matchmaking).

    On the topic of Splatoon it is an awesome game… which I have now traded in.  The problem with Splatoon is that the perks and weapons for being level 20 are far far superior to the lower level ones (although some good high level players use the starter weapon for the invincibility perk).  So as a level 6 player I would join matches were EVERYONE was level 20.  The amazing players would completely destroy me because well they are good at the game but the biggest issue is that even the bad players can easily kill you because their weapons do more damage and have a longer range.

    Now I am aware that the aim of the game is to pain the environment but a big part is also denying the other team by well killing them.  When the game came out I would do well in most rounds and will usually get far more kills than deaths.  When I came back to it a few months later I would be lucky if I got a kill and would continously die to people that I couldn’t even hit.

  9. honestly i dont think i have ever had to ask my ps4 to update anything its all automatic lol so i cudnt tell you i do know however since saturday i noticed the heavy ban timer im guessing because players in ranked play just left if they were losing

  10. also im ( iiCe89 ) on ps4 if anybody up for rocket leauge games im 26 Years old

    The biggest issue I have with ranked is the awful awful matchmaking system.  I love 2v2 but usually what seems to happen is that I am the highest rated player I get matched with the lowest rated player and when we win I get bugger all rating game and when we loose I get hammered.

    Okay, this question crops up quite a lot but especially more since the PS4/XbOne released.

    It’s an agreement with retail stores and the console companies – keep the digital titles at RRP and the stores will still stock them (remember when EA and Game butted heads three years ago?). At this moment there are still gamers that either don’t have internet or a decent line speed, which means that they need to rely on physical titles from brick and mortar stores. Now the reason nobody just bites the bullet is because say Sony undercuts stores, the marketplace may reject them and leave Microsoft as the king or the high street.

    Now the reason that online setups like Steam or GoG can undercut the RRP is… how many stores do you know with a massive PC selection?

    As we advance and depend more on internet connectivity, I’m sure that we’ll start to see a change – much like the CD vs digital market did way back when.
