Video Games - What Are You Playing Right Now?

So I got a loan of Destiny from a pal because hes all over Destiny 2.

Just gonna settle down there to play it but it won't work. It says "no internet connection detected".

I don't have Broadband. I stream everything through my phone to my TV and don't use it very much anyway.

Do I seriously need to have Broadband to play a Playstation game? I admit I'm not techy but whats the story there does anybody know?

Yes its an online multiplayer shooter. You would also need a PS Plus subscription.

You kinda need broadband just to have the latest patches as many games are released in a terrible state.

Cheers Thomas. Thats a pity.

People are always amazed at me when they find out I have no Broadband. I couldn't justify the extra e50 a month. I'd hardly use it.

Would Broadband make a difference to the quality of picture?

Not as a rule but some games do need patches that significantly improve resolution, framerates and sometimes even contain extra content that isn't on the disk. No Mans Sky for example had a Day 1 patch that completely changed how the game was played.

Maybe I should get Broadband.

Gave pal back Destiny. Thats a pity you have to be online. It says it on it in little print now that I checked. Everytime I buy a game I'll make sure it dosen't say that but needing Broadband will become more and more the norm with these games.

Pal was going on about tethering my phone to a hotspot and it would work. Easy as you may think too over the head for me.

Yeah a lot of games nowadays release in a poor state that require fixes and patches weeks after release. It is kinda necessary to have an online connection.

Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain. I've never played any of those games before so might get hooked. So far so good....

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Cannot wait to get Assassins Creed Origin! I will get it during the week. The feedback is it is deadly! (Hope to god you don't need an online connection)

I'm hours into it and loving it. Tons of meaningful side-quests and some brilliant main missions too. Probably the best since Black Flag. Delighted that it's bug-free so far. Ubisoft hurt the AC franchise badly by releasing buggy games before. Now I'm prepared to almost forgive them for green-lighting that shite movie.

Do I have to have broandband to use a Playstation Pro? I have the right T.V. Is it just an upgraded hard drive and will I still get a stunning picture?

A hard drive is a data storage device.
It uses super fast spinning magnetic discs to store data. It won't make any difference to picture quality on a console.
