Isn't there supposed to be a way to delete 0% trophies from your trophy list? Mines getting long and id like to get rid of the ones i never really played

 

Have to do it through the trophies menu on the PS4 I believe.

I bought resident evil revelations 2 this week on a whim as I haven't played since 4 Wow, what a piece of shit. Awful controls and just overall bad gameplay. Sound design was pathetic as well I felt like I was firing cap guns into paper. Just awful.

Terrible, just terrible.


Haha. I bought Battlefront and FO4 at full MSRP and will play them the minute they finish installing. Not very CAG-like of me.

I don't understand this view point. The shooting is solid. The dodge is immensely satisfying and far better than RER1. There are really only two bosses and a midboss but they don't rely on QTEs like RE4's did but you won't see them until much later anyway.

But I just don't understand how you can hate RER2 when it has such a solid dodge+shoot melee rhythm.

Got a weird email from Sony that my PS+ was set to auto renew.  I know I had turned that "feature" off before and while I intend on renewing with a pre-paid card before it comes due, I was shocked to see it say it was enabled.  Turns out that EVERY SINGLE TIME you renew PS+ using any method of payment it turns this "Feature" back on.  So heads up.  It won't change the automatic wallet funding setting, but it will pull money from your account if you don't go in every time you renew and turn this back off.

 

To turn it off, I could have done it from a PS3 or PS4 but I opted for the PC option.  Hit the url provided (which is just the actual account page where you can add prepaid cards and stuff) and then hit the media tab and scrolled through the list in reverse to the PS+ subscription.  Opened it, expanded one section and then unchecked the auto renew.

 

So heads up.  Now it makes sense why some folks were complaining in the past about auto renewal still happening.  Any subscription renewal on PS+ turns this auto renew button back on.

 

Ultimately it doesn't affect me right now... I see no reason why I'll not renew.  But for others it may be an issue if they are letting it expire to renew the next month to try and "extend" the service those extra weeks while still getting all the PS+ games.

I'm not a PC gamer so forgive the noob question but how come those games ran like shit on PC? I thought Xbox One and PS4 were heralded for being close to PCs, making porting to PC a cinch. It sounds like those games are virtually unplayable.

Also keep in mind, the port team is often an outside dev or the inhouse b team, especially if the sales forecast suggests pc is a smaller factor. More importantly, with the console, you are working with a pretty stable (and known) hardware/software environment. With the pc, you have two major video card manufacturers with various card architectures, multiple Windows OS versions to support, not to mention CPU/Mobo/RAM variants. It can be difficult to optimize even when PC is the lead. And then if 5%-15% of the user base has a broken experience, you can't write them off as edge cases as that broken experience will become the internet's collective reaction.

I got that about a week ago and had meant to mention it since several people had been mysteriously billed for PS+ auto renewal over the last couple months when they previously had it off.

 

This is why I don't have any payment method associated with the account and rarely keep a balance.

Yeah, it's always a good idea to read the fine print on what you're signing up for with any and all subscription services. For PS+:

 

"Unless you cancel your membership at least one day prior to the renewal date, this membership will automatically convert to a 12-month membership, and $49.99 will be automatically be deducted from your network wallet according to the Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) Terms of Service and User Agreement. See http://www.sonyenter...twork.com/tosua. After conversion, your membership will automatically renew every 12 months for $49.99 until you cancel it. You may cancel your membership via the SEN account management tools, by contacting customer support at 877-971-7669 or through www.us.playstation.com."

I just bought the physical UMD with the PSP camera in the same box for $4.98 on clearance at Target last month. It's comical that they included it as a PS+ game.

Kick ass. And here I was feeling sorry for myself because I forgot to buy Code Veronica on sale. I was just thinking this morning that PS Now would be a good service if it had a larger library or they halved the price.

The Vita version of Dragon Fin Soup just appeared on the PS Store, so I added the link to that to the list above. The original PS+ announcement said the PS3 version was coming later, but I guess that was quickly not the case with the simultaneous release.

Dragon Fin Soup seems pretty cool so far. Only played the little prelude thing and didn't quite understand things like the stats I was seeing on some blocks as if there was loot there but no way to pick it up.

I'll get back to it tonight but seems promising.

I mean I get why they do it that way but most services have the decency not to quietly force that upon you if you're using pre-paid memberships.

Or worse, you are already a member and just add another year to the existing subscription and them flipping the switch back on for auto-renew.  It's one thing to do it when you first sign up but to keep doing it after renewing manually each year seems excessive.

 

Anyway, at least now we know why it happens and can inform folks that will complain about getting auto-renewed despite previously having turned that "feature" off.  I've never had a card associated with my account and long ago turned off the secondary wallet funding option.

 

...

 

Not sure when I'll give Dragon Fin Soup a try.  I locked in the licenses on all the new PS+ stuff I didn't already own earlier today when they changed the listings.   Overall a ho-hum month but I got so much to play and I rarely immediately play PS+ games the same month they go free anyway.

It's good and definitely worth the price. It's a few hours long to beat it and maybe another hour or so to get all of the collectibles.
