Sea Of Thieves – Player HideOuts, Raids, Character Creation

In the latest interview with Rare, they were asked about character creation in the game. Sea Of Thieves won’t have a large series of sliders for players to finely tune the look of their character, instead there will be a selection of eight predefined characters that are randomly generated from millions of different possibilities. This is somewhat disappointing to myself as someone who enjoys making the character exactly how I want but Rare goes on to state that most gamers who play games with a character creation tool tend to…

Sea Of Thieves is a game that has incredible potential but it needs to be looked after carefully by Rare and they need to have a very open line of communication with players and a detailed, understandable…

PSN Problems Downtime

When things are free, in anything in life, there is a general tolerance when things aren’t 100% with what is being offered. Get a free meal at a restaurant and, if you’re not paying for it, you’ll give it more lenience if it isn’t the greatest meal you’ve ever had.

Firstly news broke this week that the competitive end game mode of Trials of the Nine had reached its lowest ever player count of 77,814 players across all 3 platforms. It seems this PvP mode can’t compete with the similar game mode from Destiny 1 Trials of Osiris which had 145,000 players as its lowest player count. Destiny 2 last weekend had almost simply cut this…
