General nonsense gaming edition.

Browns are good for a rebuild with all their first round picks. The 15 minute quarters are fine as long as you set the clock to run down to about 15 seconds. It gives you a realistic amount of plays and you've still got time to audible before the snap.

Longshot is dreadful. It's nothing but cutscenes and some of the most ridiculous clichès I've ever seen. The evil producer

I've managed to get the Jets to the AFC Championship game after going 9-7 in the regular season. Full 15 minute quarters so takes about 90 minutes to play one game. I'm really enjoying this year's Madden.

I remember playing a game of Super Soccer on the SNES for 90 minutes with a mate. The final score was something rediculous like 83-52 ha ha

Probably the most appropriate place for this question. Rise of the Tomb Raider and Wolfenstein II have began downloading on my PS4 (the former has finished and is working). These are two games I've never played (though want to), never purchased and never so much as looked at on PS Store. Yet they've come from nowhere and I have them on my console. Has this happened to anyone before/have I missed something where Sony are giving these games away for free? No one else has access to my console so it's not as if someone could have accidently ordered them, and I've checked my bank. No orders are pending.

I recently transferred my old data from my other PS4 onto this one and I recently purchased another game from the store. I don't know if somehow Sony have made a balls up and I'm certainly not complaining but I find this very strange indeed.

There is a setting that allows you to switch that feature off. I noticed that they had downloaded a game to my console and they expected me to pay for it before playing.

Did they expect you to pay before you actually started the game? I've started the game (minutes) and nothing about paying has come up yet.

I'm pretty sure it did but it was a while ago. IIRC the option is called "Featured Content" and it can be disabled somewhere in system settings.

Managed to get FIFA for free last year because of this, took it back off me after a couple of months though.

Some of the more alarming retconning I've ever seen comes today from a game released ten years ago getting a patch: https://kotaku.com/rockstar-pulls-david-bowie-and-more-from-gta-iv-1825573281

Quote

As reported previously by our sister site in the UK, Rockstar is removing a number of songs in Grand Theft Auto IV due to licensing issues. A sizable patch for the game went live today cutting lots of songs across all the radio stations, including some classics, while only adding a few back by way of some lesser known Russian tracks, mostly by Seryoga.

So if you ever feel like going BOWLING, COUSIN any time soon, don't do it while connected to the internet if you want to do it properly.

Not sure what's alarming about it - they'll have to comply with the terms of their license, so their hands are tied.  I believe SI aren't allowed to sell the previous edition of FM on Steam once the new one is released, and they have other pretty draconian licensing agreements they have to abide by.  Like the real fixtures for the EPL being unavailable, or the actual real-life standings for international qualifying.

Not that I'm agreeing with it, in FM's case the extent of licensing has gone too far, but this one seems quite tame.

Do SI patch old editions of the game to take out players/teams/content? I get the reason behind it, but I don't like the idea of retroactively taking away something you've already bought and owned. As consoles switch increasingly to digital distribution I think stuff like this will become easier and more common, and I think it's damaging for games if they can be altered like this. In this case it's not a critical part of gameplay, but driving about listening to 1979 was one of the highlights of GTA IV and to think things like that are going to be lost doesn't sit right at all.

I've got it and spent around 10 hours playing it. Was really enjoying it at first but it becomes repetitive very quickly. Considering how long it was in development there has been very little new content added apart from the new maps. I bought the edition that comes with the dlc so hopefully that adds a bit of variety. If you liked the first one then you'll enjoy it but I won't be spending as much time on this one compared to the first.

The only bug I've encountered is cars getting stuck. There is 20 gb batch out for it already. Parallels with No Man's Sky in terms of lack of content at launch and bugs.

It has been released with the game pass on Xbox so thought I’d give it a go. I never played the first one so didn’t know what to expect but the trailer looked good. I’m about 10 hours in as well. Just seems to be lacking something so far, I’m maybe doing something wrong but doesn’t feel like there’s an actual story. 

 

Ill stick at it for a while see where it takes me. Still got loads of the map to explore.
