Tuesday Chat: March 18, 2014


It's Tuesday and this is the first post of the day, meaning that it's time to chat.



Today's topic is all about updates. Be they firmware updates to hardware or patches for your favourite games. So what do you think? Are these patches and updates a good thing or would you prefer everything to work as it should from the off?

Do you like the improvements new firmware brings to hardware? Do you think it can genuinely improve the experience?

Let's Chat!

Depends. I like the improvement PS Vita have brought except for 2... Which made it impossible to play Demo from other region

Not a big fan of system updates TBH, remember the first one on the 360 and not being able to find things afterwards, not to mention preferring the old look too. If they are just improving performance, or adding some extra functionality fine, but do we really need a whole redesign?

Game update do sometimes drain all excitement out of playing a game. You get a game get home excited to play it then your system needs an update then the game needs to install then the game needs to update after going through all that you lose all the excitement.

fair enough did one earlier for South Park on PS3 dont like the scoring thing as it averages out the scores you put in so brought down South Park score because it had no multiplayer so had to put a 1 in.

Oh dear that is pretty bad i know thats not how the game is supposed to be played but still kinda sad it can be done in 10 minutes with an A rank as well!

It isn't about the length of game, it is about the quality. The Speedrun record for Super Mario World is also around 10 min but would you do that, no. Never mind the fact that you wouldn't be able to beat Ground Zeros in that time unless you played the game numerous times

It's the length it's always about the length just ask gloria if she denies it she's lying.
