Global Trader - willing to trade internationally Canada

This topic had many older posts which were moved here:

Doesn't look like there's a discussion thread for PS4, unless I'm blind. Let's discuss PS4, then, in this thread.

Recent news: according to Kotaku, Gamestop is no longer taking preorders for the system. Hope you got your preorder in!

I look at it as something they don't have to do and there are games that I would probably never buy that I have enjoyed, many of those are Indies. I like this month's additions. I also have nearly pulled the trigger on steep numerous times, last snowboarding game I played was SSX 3 so it's time.

Hey, guys. I'm having an issue with my NAT Type. I'm trying to play a multiplayer game, and it went to strict even though I changed no settings. I looked it up online, but where I am, there is currently no access to a computer to check the router settings.

Is there any way around this without using a computer? I also have to use the PS4 wirelessly. There's no way to hook it up via ethernet ATM.

Nice. There are good leveling spots a couple times through that have been mentioned before, crazy fast experience and money.

If it's anything like the first game I should only need to play everything once.

No. Unless you can communicate with the router wirelessly via ESP, you're fudgeed. Call your ISP, if it's their hardware they may be able to remotely "fix" whatever they broke; if it's not they'll tell you to get lost.

If you know your router's IP address you may be able to access it with an iPad or phone or something but it's really going to be a pain in the ass and may not work properly if it didn't have mobile in mind when the interface was being designed, and honestly nobody's going to walk you through that anyways. Go to portforward.com and find your hardware, find the ports you need for your games/services and make sure they aren't blocked by your firewall (Hint: If your network is reporting the NAT is "strict", it's your firewall blocking ports)

Got the Spyro: Reignited Trilogy for Christmas, and as I've never played too much of the original Spyro, this is like a wholly new game to me. Holy crap this is awesome.

If it didn't say Restricted before but it is now that's definitely funky behavior, usually means someone made a policy change on that network, either locally or at the service level. I'd call up your ISP and see if they can look into it.

So I was playing BFV tonight and all the commotion about the female aspect of this game is grossly over exaggerated. The game is fun, COD WWII was also a fantastic game but this feels a little more raw and real. So far I love it.

Yea, I think their marketing campaign and disregard for their playerbase's feedback and insults hurled probably sank what would otherwise be a mostly unremarkable BF installment.

Oddly they gambled it'd sell better with a hyper progressive spearhead. Anyone who's not retarded knows people on Twitter doging about female representation in video games don't actually BUY videogames. Anyways, that guy walked from the company.

EA typically does not do much that I agree with, but I did like the "if you don't like it, don't buy it" stance. Fudge those ass hats that are complaining that there are women in this game, or that ones that said BF has always been about realism. Really? Women are not going to make the game real? Cool, so jumping from plane to plane is? Smashing a hammer against a tank is going to somehow repair battle damage? Oh know I got riddled full of bullets but some medic is going to bring me back so I can fight some more! Fudge these guys. BFV is true to the BF formula. BF1 was amazing! and BFV basically continues that.

EA/Dice did not pander and stuck to there guns. Your right though, they gambled and they lost. Though I won since I got it for $29.99 raspberry

Yeah, the problem with the "if you don't like it you're misogynists and don't buy our game" stance is, surprise, nobody bought the game.

So, enjoy it if you will. They gutted their fan base to get some Twitter clout and it cost them their projections and their jobs because, again, the people they're trying to court don't actually buy videogames. Not too bright.

I don't thing you're misogynistic if you do not buy it, and I don't think they were saying that either. You had a bunch of morons yelling about women fighting in WW2 and how it takes away from the realism of the game as I said earlier the realism in this game can be picked apart pretty easily. Women did fight actual battles in the war and played big roles in the resistance this game makes note of that. If those people can't get over it then they miss out on a pretty good FPS. However in actually playing they game it's not shoved in your face, I don't see it online though I mainly play DOM and single player? Have not seen it yet either it's probably a campaign we're you play a women character, kind of like how BF1 did it, there were a bunch of main characters that played in there own story during different parts of the war. Basically a bunch of threatened idiots yelling for nothing. It may have cost EA but at least they did not cave and pander to the idiots. Sometimes doing the right thing hurts the wallet.

Yeah, the "women were in War" angle would have worked a lot better if they'd portrayed those events instead of shoehorning women into other crap they didn't do.
