  1. I noticed randomly my acitivies and trophies had changed when I press the PS button. Hadn't noticed the splash screen page changing though

    Stock response today to my proof. Complete and utter arseholes. They even say as part of the DD guarantee I will be informed. I challenged this in my email before because there was no notification. They can't even be arsed to check the records for the actual letter they sent which said it was due to payment errors. I'm not angry at the price increase, I've been paying it for the best part of ten years (introductory offer seems a bit rich mind) but it's the lack of honest Comms.

    Magazines Direct really do suck. They are arguing with me that I've been charged £11.25 a quarter for a year but I've just provided a screenshot of evidence that it began in July and that follows a letter to tell me there was an issue taking some DDs and I was being billed slightly extra. Lets see how they respond to this!
  4. It is too saturated now with games so those friendships can't be striked up. You'd often bump into the same people on PGR2 from time to time and hence make friendships with them. Remember the random Cat and Mouse games when there was no playlist for it. Try organising that now in an open match.

    The Christmas issue is now always £1 more than the standard ones. It seemed to be a new Future policy applied some years ago to all of its titles; to do a 'premium' edition with some freebie or special edition. I guess they choose Christmas because they can flog a calendar each year and more sales as stocking fillers maybe. It is a weird thing though to have pricing different on one issue a year.

    Has anyone else who subscribes had a price increase to your quarterly DD without being advised? I had a letter in the post earlier in the Summer explaining there was a problem with the one DD payment which was as a result of a system error and therefore to cover a slightly extended period the charge would be £11.25 as a one-off. Anyway it turns out I've had two £11.25 payments taken and upon contacting the customers services, they've told me I'd been advised that my price was increasing from £8.99 to £11.25. They never mentioned this was permanent in the letter sent and they say my offer has now finished and I'm on a higher priced DD now. Well erm thanks for checking with me and blaming a technical problem with the system for this. Annoying because yes I've had that offer for the best part of a decade, so I get prices will go up but don't lie about it and blame a technical error collecting a DD!
  7. After such a long wait (made even longer by me ignoring this until I recently purchased it for £3.49 in the sale), I started it and I'm really underwhelmed by it. To the point I'm literally thinking of skipping it. The first two games were some of my favourites but perhaps I have rose-tinted glasses. The combat in this feels awful; the movement in general is slow and menus are clunky. The whole energy and food consumption, I just CBA with. I didn't want a super-modern Shenmue but I did want one to reflect changes in controllers now. After a few hours in, I just can't see it getting much better...I'd rather go and play a Yakuza game.
  8. Little Nightmares was on PS Now I think. Great to have Tony Hawk, that is two months on the trot with Crash 4 and TH that I've been wanting to purchase both when they get to a decent price.
  9. I was surprised to hear the word bastard during a cut scene therefore I guess that is why!
  10. I cannot get any of the DLC working with the original game, it always stays greyed out even when downloaded. Given up now. Going back to 30fps though from Miles Morales is a shock to the system.
  11. Edit - PS Now customers will go onto the top tier, makes more sense! Wonder how the conversion for those subscribing to Now and PS Plus will work? Or will you just get put onto the Extra tier automatically which is stingy since we've paid out more than the new service for both. I'm curious if this means the end of the monthly updates and going into a Gamespass style drip feed through the month?
  12. It seems since things were moved across to this new company that the service has got worse. Added to that the Royal Mail issues too.
  13. I only had issue 365 last week, but I also appreciate there are severe postal delays in my area and we only get posted letters approx once a week.
  14. This is my most played game too
  15. Is the HDMI cable 2.1? It doesn't seem to have any label to suggest so?
  16. Just file it is a missing through your online account. I must admit the system to reorder back issues if you haven't had one is very good with no questions asked. Only problem is your don't get a subs copy with the exclusive cover. I've had two go missing this year and it's the first time it's happened in over 10 years of subbing!
  17. I've been shifting around my old copies of Edge and couldn't help notice when this issue dropped how thin the magazine feels. As the page count is the same it must be the thickness of the paper which feels a bit cheap now. Remember when they launched this look of the magazine and it boasted about its glossy pages! Aren't we well overdue an overhaul of the mag now after more than a decade?
  18. I'm still waiting on last month's. That's twice this year I've had no shows, the first time in over a decade of subbing.
  19. The cross-over with PS Now continues. Wreckfast and Stranded Deep were both on the service recently even if its the PS5 upgrade of the former. Wonder if the saves will cross-over?
  20. Best get moving; mind you if they stopped selling them last Summer, I wonder how much stock they actually have!
  21. Thinking about doing this, just wondering if the prices will hike on 12 months since theres no mention of it.
  22. I really enjoyed Maneater but yes it just seems a direct port of a last-gen title. No haptic feedback on the triggers, I had about 6 crashes throughout especially when more zones opened and the controls can get uncomfy after a while. That said I've got the platinum on it which was nice and I enjoyed just spacing out to something simple.
  23. Is there a way to easily save some of these stats or just a case of screen shotting things?
  24. Another PS Now games comes to Plus relatively soon after. Nice to see one PS5 game a month, was worried with backwards compatibility they wouldn't bother.
  25. WRC8 was not bad as I recently played it via PS Now. I'd imagine WRC9 will get added at some point next year as they all tend too. I certainly thought WRC8 was more arcadey than Dirt Rally 2 which I'd recently done which made me fight to keep the car on the road so good to hear WRC9 has an element of skill in it too.
