Yeah, I've powerlined a connection from my PS4 to the PSTV in the upstairs bedroom and it's unreliable at best.

Cheers - I hope it works better than PS4 remote play (and PS TV) which seems to struggle streaming reliably whether wired or not unless I'm in the same room as the router - and that's with Virgin...

I'm not a hardware expert, so bear with me. I'm just about reaching the end of the lifespan of my Dell XPS17 laptop which was about £1000 five years ago and need to consider what to get...
CM01/02 as you can probably complete 10 games in 30 minutes.
Chaos Reborn (although some matches can drag).
That's a strange way of looking at it. As a player of every Elite since I first got my sticky 9yr old hands on it back in the mid 80's I always felt that with technological progress it would be very...
Must not mention Star Citizen, must not mention Star Citizen...
Looks OK but I haven't played Elite since about a month after it left Beta. Is it a lot better now than it was? I don't think it...

Yeah :/ I r old.
Mostly though I get annoyed by RPG's with lots of dialogue, cut scenes, intricate crafting systems or 'open world' exploration... which is pretty much most RPG's since 1998. I...

Bards Tale 4 is ironically 'crawling' along now so I can't see it getting close to the 1.9m Avelone tier. I'm not that bothered, it almost seems a waste of a great writer to be involved in a Blobber...

Mine, in this rough order although nostalgia probably creeps in for Bards Tale 1:
1. Wizardry 6 (PC/Amiga)
2. Suikoden 2 (PS1/PSP/Vita)
3. Bards Tale 1 (PC Dosbox)
4. Pools of Darkness...

Obligatory Chris Avellone stretch goal added to BT4...

Beamdog seemed to improve their work after BG1 EE was released so theres some hope that they can pull it off, but it's still a BIIIG stretch to go from a team that remasters / optimises old games to...

Do what I just did and read all the 'Thumbs down' comments on Steam while pretending the 'Thumbs up' don't exist.
To be fair, it's not universally liked at all.

Meh, now I've read up on it more you're totally right - it's not what I'd define as a pure RPG... and I've cancelled my pledge. If it wasn't already well over funding I'd feel bad about that.
I've heard extremely varied reports on Wildstar from it being a colourful and action orientated competitor for WoW to it being a buggy mess riddled with bots. Any one of you fine RPS people have a...
I wonder what it'll take for WoW 2 to finally be a thing? Subscriber numbers are still in the 7m region so I guess there isn't enough reward/risk tilt to make it happen yet and even if they do, it...

Shenmue 3's kickstarter amount is going up like a petrol pump number. I never played the original games but backed it anyway because it's an RPG on my PS4 for about £20 which is a rare treat.
If all they did for XCOM 2 was release a press statement saying "we've made it a bit more like the X-Com original, and thrown in a bit of Jagged Alliance 2" then I'd be pushing my money through the...
I get what people are saying with FF9 but commercially I doubt it would sell half the units of FF7. While I prefer Suikoden 2 as JRPG's go, I think FF7 was the first game to really brake through on...

Checks Steam Library: 226 games under 5 hours gametime.
Hmmm... it's still OK to buy if they're 75-80% off, right?

I backed Bards Tale 4 at the 'Early Bard' $20 figure but spent about an hour last night staring at the $95 pledge tier just because you get a nice big box and cloth map. I don't think I'd consider it...

Shaman in WoW was also interesting due to the totem placement and expiry timer mechanics - especially in 5 or 10 man dungeons where there was often a difficult choice to make between using say...
It does to me, but that's my persona - highly competitive. I also like the feeling of progression which isn't very strong in Elite Dangerous, compared perhaps to the original game where you...
This was the game I was most looking forward to for a number of years but I haven't played it at all in the last couple of months because I simply don't want the MMO part. As I've mentioned before,...
It's not a safe bet, it's utter conjecture. Also, unless it's part of the fulfilment process, just give a fake number.
Great ratings on Trustpilot / Google Reviews. Also, I'm pretty sure their Facebook page (which they're heavily promoting) would be flooded with hacked off people if there were major problems. Not to...
