I lit a matchstick, it was a cheap brand and part of the end broke off, but I wasn't aware.

I should probably stop saying my shirt was on fire, however it was smoldering and it burnt right through, I also had a small burn mark for quite some time but it seems to have gone now, haha.

I see. You could always use a mic with a mute button, though.

It's the official Sony headset, so it has the mute button, I just didn't think to use it at the time lol.

As for the argument, that was just complete stupidity on my behalf, walked out for a couple of seconds planning to play again shortly, then came back into the room (with the TV off) to exchange in a three hour long "talk".

But yeah, if PS4 doesn't bring back the chat feature (Probably better if they didn't), I'll start using a mic again. Worth the risk of embarrassment so I can continuing complaining about whatever game I'm playing.

I guess i don't talk much because of my accent... i do know english but talking to a person is so much different than just typing words. If english was my 1st language i'd talk way more often, but right now it's like... eh they won't like my accent or won't understand me.

 

But it's nice when my friends tell me "behind you!" or "the Flynn has an RPG". Feels like they're really into the game and want to win, like a team. Smiley Very Happy

Have you heard me talk?? I think you're safe!! LOL

We all know messaging someone is far easier than directly talking to them generally. I have made some great friends on psn without actually talking to them. I don't know much about their personal life minus basic details, but that's ok though. I don't expect to meet them in person or have a relationship beyond what we do now: play games.

I would just like to help reinforce the true* idea that no one should feel ashamed or embarrassed about having an imperfect english dialect (or "accent") if english isn't their first language. Firstly, it is absolutely nobody's place to judge you on how well you speak other than you and a person teaching you, or a helper of some sort. Second, It's not your first language, so yeah, it's not gonna be exactly like someone who has spoken a certain language all their life, and that's totally ok, don't feel timid about it if you can help it Smiley Happy feel empowered to have confidence and speak more often, so that you can work on improving - for your own reasons and motivations, your hopes of speaking any language more accurately. I can understand someone's motivation in feeling awkward about not having a certain dialect down, but don't feel actually timid about it, let that run off your back like water off a birds feathers, because life is too short to worry about some people's judgement of you. I would love speaking to anyone - and be grateful that they are speaking to me in my native language no matter how thick their "accent" is or how broken their english is or whatever, because I'm not capable of speaking to them in their native language. I appreciate anyone who's trying to learn another language, and doing any decent job of it. You rock for that. /Rant

Only time i use my mic is in co-op with friends when they have their mics on, very rarely use it in competetive modes. But i agree & disagree with the thread at the same time as everyone who has commented hhas made valid points. Personally i wouldnt want to force mic usage on anyone. Its a added option for a reaso.
Because its a choice Smiley Happy

Somebody once gave me their phone number once lol cos they didn't have a mic. I generally do like to get to know people but I'm not that talkative so I don't really know what to say after asking their name and where they're from, I think it's really interesting to know people from different country's.
