Now that The Game That Will Never Be Discussed Again has been left behind, Joseph and Sid turn their discussion to three major stories. Feauring shady people doing that shady shit no-one likes.
Our first shady people are another indie developer has decided to poison the well. Studio Wildcard have released Downloadable Content for their Early Access game ARK: Survival Evolved. A notoriously poorly optimised survival/crafting game that regularly tops the Steam charts. As a favourite amongst YouTubers and the Survival/Crafting community, Wildcard have received major backlash as they released the Scorched Earth DLC, an already controversial topic of debate, to users for a game that is very much unfinished.
The launch of Sony’s Playstation 4 Pro and Playstation 4 Slim has left many wondering why it even existed. Are the specifications of the device enough to compete truly against PC Gaming, as claimed? Or is this reactionary towards Microsoft’s new XBox One S and Project Scorpio? It’s biggest selling point is the ability to playback 4K video, however a major problem with the device is it’s lack of a 4K Blu-Ray player in favour of 4K streaming content instead. Also, what’s up with the design?
In other news, patent troll British Telecom have decided to sue Valve for infringing on four of it’s vaguest patents in order to cash in on Steam’s success as a platform. Does BT have a horse in this race and why would they try to pick on Valve instead of significantly bigger platforms like Twitch, iTunes, Spotify, Facebook or even Virgin Media for that matter?
