800,000 people might be at the Presidential Inauguration, but that’s peanuts compared to the number of eager Bad Gamers fans waiting for their latest fix. It’s time to shoot up – episode 17 is here!
The highlight of Monday has finally arrived!
I usually download and then listen later in the week. It's definitely the best PS-exclusive podcast. Can't stand Beyond.
Can you fix? If it's an MP3 file, then I'll download to my PS3. Thanks.
Yes! Another Sony doom and gloom article. I was afraid we weren't going to see one this week..
Love the image.
Spare some change?
I don't have any chaaaaaange! *in Randy Marsh voice*
I'm ok with 1 maintenance session a month, no more
The length of maintenance is always terrible... because it means I can't play my games.
So you are saying you have no single player/offline games?
because single player games don't exist...right
if the only game you play is CoD for online, then yeah your world will crumble. But I have a to of single player games ... most of which i downloaded with PS+ for free. :D
Fair go. I'm pretty sure COD isn't the only online enabled game. Some people like to play co-op/competitive online games that aren't COD, and for them, outages/ maintenance is kind of a big deal. Are they wrong for enjoying online play? Are we telling people HOW they should be gaming now?
Nah youre right, my CoD comment was meant to be a vague generalization of that 'type' of player. Who just plays their favorite online shooter everytime they turn on their system. Those are the most popular types of games, and there are many who dont play anything else but black ops (judging by my friends lists). So theyre the ones that were hurt the most in this instance.
The length of the maintenance is usually 1 hour, you loon. This was a rare occasion. Quit pretending like you play any games, because if you did, you'd know you can play offline.
Can you imagine if next consoles are online playable only and outages occur with anti used patents to top it all off? Why I love the pc.
I counter your make believe state ment with my own make believe statement can you imagine if a virus gets passed around world wide that rapes every pc including high end gaming ones or if all devs start using even more extreme DRM methods on pc oh how I love my console
Statement was not make believe but based on leaked console features for a start. PC wise, one can game offline or with updating anti virus ware. Consoles are constrained to premium or payed online gaming subscriptions for the trouble.
Um, you DO know that (some) PC devs are trying to move to always-online DRM and such, right? That aside, console outages would only affect games that you bought DURING the outage, as it's not like the system wouldn't already have a local record of the games you'd registered prior to the outage. So... yeah... no.
I get spammed on NG4's rumored based site for reflecting future rumored based console features. lol.
Oh how I enjoy my IQ level
Lol PSN is under maintenance right now! Sucks cuz I was just online quit a game they auto signed me off!
