Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
Streaming video games: the future?
Sony recently announced the UK launch of their streaming service, PlayStation Now. I'm not sure how successful this service has been in the US, but I can't see it getting much support over here.
$20 a month to play a limited list of PS3 games (and not even at the highest quality - 1080p is not supported). You can rent them for a smaller price, but this is clearly ridiculous. Rent a PS3 game for 9 days for $15 and then you're unable to play it after the rental period is up?! These prices will probably be converted straight into £ for the UK too, so we'll be no doubt be paying £20 a month.
I could perhaps understand paying for a streaming service that included new PS4 games as well, but this type of payment model for PS3, PS2 or PS1 games just screams rip-off.
Thoughts so far
I'm currently in Old Yharnam. Thoughts so far:
- I've not played the Souls games but combat reminds me a little of Otogi, another old From Software game. I like how Bloodborne encourages speed and aggression. Dodging and parrying to outwit enemies is fun.
- I'm still using the saw cleaver because I like both weapon forms and it's easy to use.
- The game looks incredible. The only slight problem is that there are fairly noticeable frame rate issues.
- Yharnam is an excellent setting and I like how everything is connected. I wish there was a map though.
- I have no idea what the story is about really but the whole sense of mystery is very compelling
