A beta test veteran takes you through the dos and don'ts of Sony's bizarre online community.
Are capable of finding there own way round And it will be more Fun
I know I have despite cursing out some no life morons who went out of there way trying to step up to me.
I want 3d trophie's and an arcade in my trophy room and a flat screen in my summer home. Survive home? I did not know we could die...I saw no life bars.
...from me is to never approach a doorway in HOME if you're intent isn't to leave an area. You will automatically zone to the next space when in common areas. Then you'll have to zone back to the place you just left which is a minor inconvenience. I'm not sure if this will be patched with an accept prompt in the final version but if not you've been warned. Otherwise get a headset or keyboard interface of some type if you don't have one and get familiar with the mute individual/block players options. Also get VERY familiar with the PDA that you will use for virtually all navigation in HOME. Once you're savvy with the PDA you'll be whisking away to zones like nobody's business. Gaming etiquette: Don't go afk while play any games, this includes bowling, pool, chess, or arcade games. I haven't gone afk for long periods of times so I'm not sure how HOME handles this particularly with games you can play in the application.
THERE ARE NO GIRLS IN HOME
Survive? This isn't Dead Space. Home is very easy going and incredibly easy to navigate. Everything you need to know is introduced step by step through tutorials or on screen propmts.
I guess the tutorials didn't help ppl..since u got dis-agrees
That's why I headdesked. o-O
Ha, yeah, or maybe people who haven't even tired Home yet? Because you cant even proceed without going through the tutorials first. Basically if you struggle with Home you'd struggle with computer games, or perhaps, writing your name. It's incredibly simple to use, almost as if Sony designed it that way... ;)
This site is full of little children that press disagree based on someones name and their gaming preference. Its quite pathetic. I dont think they even read the comments. And to disagree with someone because they are saying something TRUE about something you dont have, dont like and have never used is very immature... but then again N4G as a whole is very immature with all the flamebait articles all day. I used to think this site was cool as hell when I found it a couple years back. I hated how the 360 guys bashed everything Sony related, but not much has changed. It has just gotten worse. They made gamer/open zone which is truly useless. I think it should be one zone, moderated only for racism/cursing/spoilers and let the gamers have ONE account to use. The commenters can bubble up/down people and let the site be moderated like that. If a user gets one bubble - Take away his reply button from his comment, because he has one bubble because he is a spamming troll. If N4G ever did this, I think people would be very surprised to find out how many accounts are actually duplicates.
Pay them no mind. I don't really care anymore. I gave you an agree btw. This needs to stop but it won't anytime soon. The hatred is strong around here. I guess people are pissed off because Home came a lot sooner than expected.
I think a better article for here might be "How to survive your first sexual encounter with another person. All two minutes of it." That would help out a lot more people, I think.
Every girl you see may not really be a girl.... G.I.R.L - Guy In Real Life
Wrong, yesterday i was in home, and talked to a REAL G.I.R.L and she had a MIC.. so yeah $uck it haters. on topic Sony's bizarre online??? Fanboy article much?
The article midway through turned into more of a review then what to do in Home, he expresses some opinion in it which I wasn't expecting, just a guide tour
LMAO Black. It's pathetic when guys disguise themselves as girls just to get ridiculous attention. It's a riot when you see groups of 20+ guys swarming and dancing around a single female avatar. Now that's what I call running a virtua train.
Oh lawd, teach me your ways.
Do what I did for some real fun. I made a girl character one day while my sister was over for a visit. She got on my mic and started talking to guys. It didn't take long before they were saying some pretty R rated stuff to her at that point I would switch avatars get on the mic and call them all losers/homos. Seriously though there are some girls and women on Home but when they use a mic you always got some loser running them off. I mean they have a report group for stalking already. I think Home is gonna be a crazy fun place. I can't wait for the craziness cause people will always find new ways to use a service like this.
I wil collect more Trophy's for Home!!!!!!!
Yeah you'll better watch out from all those gay boys in their.
Was'nt that someones ID on xbox live Look on youtube He like's to play Halo with the rest of his Chums Maybe you have him on your friend list maybe its you
You should know because you're one of them.
Oh he knows alright, he can't deny Shanes big salami of love ;).
...or block Home users from coming up to you? If my wife gets on and is annoyed by lots of what I would consider dorks then she'll stop using Home. Its why she does not play most on-line games as she gets sick of being hit on.
add 300 pounds to her avatar.
You can look at that person, press X and mute them. Ot use the PDA, select them and add to ignore list. This will not stop them from walking up to you, but you will not hear them or see their text messages any longer. Hope that helps.
its a social network... whats the point of using it if you dont want to interact with other users... you can block people.. do that.. or tell her to dress like a guy.
Home horndogs or the racist, homophobic, 12 year olds who ruin every single XBL game. In the year that I've been gaming over the PSN I've noticed the idiot count is quite low compared to what I experienced using XBL for years before tiring of garbage mouthed twits ruining every online games and asking myself "Why am I paying for this?"
The moderation should increase exponentially when there are more people , well hopefully
Home needs player moderators that can temp mute anyone and when they temp mute them, a report is sent to sony which has priority over all the other report sent by regular players and it stops them using their mic and typing.
thats because nobody has mics.
Too bad you can't punch out the racist punks GTA style.
I would think that many people would spend the first hour just downloading the different spaces. /guide ;)
There is a lot of racist, sexist, homophobic comments being made on home. I think this needs to somehow be moderated better. It doesn't make it a comfortable place fore everyone. Its difficult to monitor people's behaviour. This is why I mute the sound of headsets and use a keyboard. I hope that there will be an area for more mature players. I have met some really great people but you have to sift through a lot of people to find them.
Now Home is "bizarre". Something that you have to survive. Hating much lately?
It's from a PlayStation site...so I doubt it's much hating. Probably just said those things jokingly.
yeah i'll take HOME for a spin. Maybe i'll get a few laughs out of it.
