The winner of 3 months of PS Plus!...


Will NOT be announced here! Actually, ever since I started GoingSony giveaways I never liked having to publicly announce who the winner is each month. I believe it leaves too much room open for harassment from other users and I didn't like that. It hasn't been a problem yet, but as the site grows and more people become regulars, I fear it would only be a matter of time. Thankfully, private messages have been implemented on the the site, and I will be sending the winner their code using those.

I want to thank everyone who was active this week, but I want to give an even bigger thanks to those that are active every week, when I'm not giving something away. That being said, I would like to ask for things that YOU would like to see on the site. It could be a new feature, or it could be a tweak to something that I already do. Have a topic you would like to see in a Lgndary Thought? Post it below! Have an idea for what I could give in next months giveaway? Post it below! If you have any ideas in general, please don't be afraid to say something. And remember, if you do have something you would like to let me know, you can leave a comment, tweet me on twitter, send an email, or even use our new shiny private message feature. And that doesn't just mean today, feel free to say something whenever an idea pops into your head. Thanks everyone!

All of Evolve's DLC Maps will be Free

Coming from an interview with the Creative Director for Evolve:

"First thing we [Evolve's creative leads] said was we can't break the community up, so all of our maps will be free. We never want anyone to get booted off of a server because they haven't bought something."

See I think this is really great. The Director of FFXIV actually takes the exact same stance, and that is why PS3, PS4, and PC players get the same content at the same time. I wish more directors were like this.

Planetside 2 Beta coming in December


Lgndary Thoughts - The Power of the Patch


The previous generation of consoles (Wii, PS3, Xbox 360) introduced internet connected gaming on a broad scale for the first time. This allowed games, and gamers, to interact and do things that would otherwise not be possible. Most of the changes that occurred where very positive, but one change internet connect consoles brought has begun to turn negative. Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!

The feature that I am speaking of is the ability to patch games. Originally, it was something great. If a game had a game breaking glitch, or maybe a handful of smaller bugs, it was easy enough to fix. Issue a patch and everything is all better. Some developers still use patches in this way, for those “just in case” situations. But others are abusing it, the biggest offender is Ubisoft. These kind of developers use patches as a sort of deadline extension. They have a date they have to fill, and if the game isn't done by then they can always patch it! See, this is NOT okay, and I find the behavior horrible. I don’t think any company should be able to release a product knowing it is far from done, with the excuse that it will eventually work. 

This is actually part of a much bigger problem, something that I mentioned in a earlier Thought. When the sole goal of a company is money, they don’t care wether the game is good, or even if it works. As long as it sells. Ubisoft knows that November is prime time to release Assassin’s Creed games because they sell better. Of course they would never delay it past that time just to make sure it was done! At this point though, I’m just glad developers like Nintendo still knows how to make a game right. Maybe others will catch on soon.

Deal - The Evil Within for $29.99 on Amazon (PS4)
