Major Tweak N4G Needs.

Since the new site launched there have been many major tweaks affecting all the users of this site: i.e. the combination of two posting zones. One major tweak IMO would change the way users interact with this site. When a user agrees or disagrees, they should be forced to respond. Too many times people flip through articles hitting the agree/disagree button. If users were forced to post why they disagree or agree they wouldn't spam that button so much. I don't know much about programming a site but this is something the design team for this site should look into.

I typed out a long response to this but I suck a writing and It was all jumbled together so I'll just say this. I think the system does what it's meant to do people read the comment then click disagree or agree based on there thoughts is it used wrongly sometimes yes but as long as it doesn't affect my bubbles its fine with me.

I think the reason people don't respond is because of limited bubbles I know if I disagree with someone I don't always respond because I don't want to use a bubble.

I think what I'm trying to say is that your giving your opinion and everyone's opinion is different so you should expect disagrees. my writing skills suck so I hope all that made sense lol

klado4861d ago

To use After the Deadline extension from chrome's gallery, you'll thanks me, lol.

And yeah, it was kinda lame seeing as the open zone went off, funny comments are fading, but guess that was meant to be a troll killer, lol, and for the topic, doubt that would do any better, forums link should be relocated, and fck, an open zone please UuU.

i think they should remove the bubble system and do something like yahoo news does it: when your ratio of disagrees far outweighs your agrees your comment is simply muted and only accessible by clicking "show".

i'm in the one bubble club and due to the sometimes asshole nature of some of my comments it's probably deserved. but 99% of the time there are interesting discussions that i'd like to engage in and can't. for a site about videogames this sh*t is treated far too seriously. news message boards have a far more liberal policy than one that's supposed to be about fun. i've seen messages calling for political assassinations on those boards....yet the posters aren't silenced like they are here.

How can you know this?

The agree/disagrees buttons are useless. Do not pay any attention to them.

Bubbles actually control how many comments one person can make, they need major tweaking.

Captain Tuttle4861d ago

Whoever agrees/disagrees should have their name posted.

Faztkiller4861d ago

Like the Report system? sounds like an solid Idea

Cherchez La Ghost4861d ago (Edited 4861d ago )

If you disagree, your name posted and you must state why.

klado4861d ago (Edited 4861d ago )

But state!, I disagreed with you, but so have I in hundreds of reply, and there is not bubble in hell, I'd state why did I to that amount of replies. Come again!?

Community, should and need to be joined to the main/front page, so people can go directly to blogs and so the forum, just like One up/1up.

Dramscus4861d ago (Edited 4861d ago )

I hit those buttons mostly when I run out of my three posts. Which are usually not enough. You should be allowed to carry on a conversation/ reply to anyone that replies to you.

Edit Especially in a thread/article/blog post that you yourself have posted up.

Jim Ryan: $3.6B Bungie Deal "Can Give Us Way More" Than $69B Activision Buyout

The PlayStation brand CEO, Jim Ryan, said that the Bungie deal gives them way more value than the Activision acquisition.

-Foxtrot1d 4h ago

Urm. Yeah if it was literally just Destiny vs Call of Duty but Activision is made up of a fair few other games especially on the Blizzard side of things

Then you have Crash Bandicoot and Spyro, two ex PlayStation mascots from the old days

I feel this is just standard bullshit PR talk since the UK approved the Activision deal

If Destiny was enough then why pursue so many GaaS games…

"If Destiny was enough then why pursue so many GaaS games…"

I mean, that's what he's getting at when he says the Bungie deal can give them more than spending $69b. It was never just about Destiny with it, they brought them in to help build their GAAS, and if that ends up working for them, while knowing not all will succeed, then yeah they could get more in the end.

It's def. Pr and a lot of ifs, and personally I feel they are overvaluing what Bungie can deliver, but all they need is one "Fortnite" "COD" mega gaas to be successful and that 3.6B would end up being pennies in the grand picture.

But again, I think they're putting way to much faith in Bungie. I mean, look at what's been going on with their own game this season, tons are upset over it, and this has been going on even before they were bought. That's who they want leading their GAAS? Remember, it's rumored that they're the reason that Faction 2 is delayed since it couldn't apparently work as a GAAS.

“and if that ends up working for them, while knowing not all will succeed, then yeah they could get more in the end”

Well hopefully they fail spectacularly or else PlayStation will forever be changed

Once they get a taste of that kind of money then there’s no going back and it will just get worse slowly over time.

Einhander19721d ago

They can make more than one type of game... Games are expensive, the multiplayer games can help fund the single player games.

It's not one or the other, and Sony has been telling you this since the start, they still plan to keep making single player games.

And hoping Sony fails spectacularly is basically hoping that the PlayStation brand fails, because with Microsoft doing what they are doing that's what you're going to get.

blackblades22h ago

As what Ein said, the interview was last year. As someone else said there's like over 28 games in development at that time. 10 suppose to be live service and those 10 suppose to be spreaded out over the years. Those 10 suppose to be different genre and some based on already existing IP last of us, horizon are 2 of them. Read the full interview people would get what he is talking about. One point he made was that they will help boost single player games.

Vengeance113817h ago

Crash and Spyro barely sell anymore and aren't enough to move any kind of needle. I'd barely count them as having any kind of impact at all.

-Foxtrot15h ago(Edited 15h ago)

My point is it’s still something

If your main meaty part of the deal is COD and Blizzard games then Crash and Spyro are nice little bonuses

blackblades1d 4h ago

Heres the full interview, this site needs to change. Start posting the full thing not one thing from it making 10 different topic

-Foxtrot1d 3h ago

Yeah but you can’t just link a Reddit post on here…it has to be an article

XiNatsuDragnel1d 3h ago (Edited 1d 3h ago )

Dude I get it man but accept Activision was bigger purchase even though it shouldn't have happened regardless but modern gaming these days it's full of cheerleaders imo.

CappyBlack1d 3h ago (Edited 1d 3h ago )

Probably not, but, even so, that would only be because they have a bunch of planned GaaS titles coming down the pipeline, and Bungie's purchase literally was just for them to help direct all the studios in how to best monetize the releases.
