It's just a terrible game.  The online is crap, the single player is crap, and then once you beat it and unlock custom clubs, you realize how much more crap it is.  The create a player is also stupid as is the way you level up.  Basically in the end everyone is maxed out with the same stats, and the way you level up is terrible as well and such a grind. 

 

For instance, the way you level up a club's control stat is by landing on the green with that club.  So in order to level up a driver's control, you have to land on the green.  Think about how stupid that is.

 

And the whole "open world" thing is pointless and ads nothing.  And in order to build custom clubs, you have to basically search the golf courses to find gems.  And I think you can find like 10 or something a day, and it takes 120 gems to make a pair of custom clubs.  Oh, and the custom clubs are all completely random as to what their stats are.  Oh, and the clubs also break after not much usage, I think like 5-6 rounds, so you have to grind more gems again to build more.  Oh, and if you don't feel like grinding, you can conveniently buy gems with real money.

 

There is a laundry list of why the game is terrible.  You can google and read forums about it.

Yet, it has a 78% score on Metacritic.

Still find the gameplay loop of the "Everybody Golf/Hot Shot Golf" series really addicting.  Turns golf into an accessible action/puzzle/rhythm game.  Find it rather meditative.  The PS4 version is probably my go to game to zone out to and relax while playing over the past year.  A lot of times I use it as a warm up before playing other games...

 

I actually love throwing on a podcast or some of my own music to listen to while playing a couple rounds in EG.

 

But then again I got the game for $20, and I could care less about the online/multiplayer modes.

What's your point?  He asked me for my opinion on why it sucks and I gave it.  As I said, go read any forums full of people who loved the previous iterations and they will tell you how awful it is.

 

The best one was part 5 IMO and this is nowhere close to it.  This version has absolutely no charm due to having all create-a-characters with character graphics that look like they are Mii's from the Wii.

I loved HSG5 and was hoping this would be the true sequel to it.  Part 6 was a port of the Vita version and it felt like a port.  So I had high hopes for this but they completely botched it.

To each their own.  I actually liked the changes.  Found it more enjoyable to create-a-character rather than being forced to choose from a preset list.  I liked the new skill-based leveling up system too.  Always hated having to collect in-game-currency in prior HSG games to boost stats.

 

Though EG is definitely a reboot, so if you wanted a true sequel to prior HSG games I could understand why you may be disappointed.

Some new deals for this week:

 

Ancient Amuletor - $9.99 - 50% Off - Ends 2/6

Chess Ultra - $7.79 - 40% Off - Ends 2/6

Pierhead Arcade - $12.74 - 15% Off - Ends 2/6

Tiny Trax - $9.99 - 50% Off - Ends 2/6

 

New Releases:

 

Out of Ammo - $14.99

Does anyone who played the new sale games have any opinions?  :wave:

 

I ended up buying Arizona Sunshine, Apollo 11, and Thumper on sale with the 10% coupon. I just got hit with the flu, so I don't see myself booting them up any time soon. I don't know if I've built up my VR stamina enough yet for Arizona Sunshine, but the reviews posted here have me intrigued to play it.

 

I ended up finding a complete copy of Job Simulator at GS the other day. It is worth it to just keep checking inventory often to see if one pops up in your area.

 

I already own it, but I visited a Walmart today that supposedly had 5 copies of Robinson. No luck. They couldn't find it anywhere. They wouldn't look in the back stock room. It is weird that the 3 GS stores around that walmart all have Robinson in stock preowned. No stores within 50 miles had it when I looked during the last B2G1. No other stores around me except those 3 have them in stock now. I suppose it's possible someone stole 5 copies from Walmart and traded them in to GS. Or it's just a weird coincidence. That's just a really odd thing to shoplift. Walmart inventory is just Fuck ing crap probably

Why wouldn't you have PS+ though?

 

I still own two physical PS+ cards, one 12 month and one three month. I haven't had PS+ active in almost a year. The last time I redeemed one was to play online with a friend for trophies before the game company shut their servers down. I used to play online often, now I never do.

 

Hell, I still own about two years of XBL cards and I haven't turned an xbox on in over five years.

Heh, I bought Apollo 11, too. Not sure when I’ll feel like playing it, but it’ll be there waiting for me when I do.

How much did you get Job Simulator for? Was it brand new in the shrink wrap? Did it actually show up as “in stock” online?

Seems like three of us have Walmarts around us that claim 5 copies, yet no one has been able to find one. Which leads me to believe we all live close to each other and must be going to the same store. :razz:

Anyone play Pierhead arcade? It kind of looks like a Wii Sports in VR. It looks like a game I could play with my 4 year old. I’d like to hear if it’s any good before i spend the $ though.

I can understand that. I was going to let my Xbox Live expire in March but got on that Amazon deal a few weeks ago and now I am good until August I believe, but I haven't played my Xbox One in quite some time outside of Cuphead offline. I play don't play online too often myself, but I play enough on PS4 to warrant the subscription with Destiny 2 and now Monster Hunter World I have been playing online more often recently.

I wouldn't jump on the black helicopter. Theft happens but the likeliness of 5 copies all going that same route are pretty slim. It's far more likely just Walmarts shitty inventory keeping.

Just to ask. Why you didn't like everybody's golf?

Just to add to everyone's thoughts, I'm ok with it being a departure from HSG.  I don't mind the leveling mechanics since I plan to play the heck out of it and everything will come in time.

 

My biggest disappointment is with the local multiplayer, only one local user can play and level up their character, based on who's account you're logged into.   Everyone else has to play with a stand in.  So you have to play alone or online to level your character.  Very counter productive for a couch co-op game.  I know not everyone plays locally but we do so that diminishes the overall value for my house.

That is my only real gripe with Everybody's Golf as well. My Dad enjoys playing the game when he comes over to my house.

Thanks for the reminder to check for Job Simulator at GS. I checked when i got in to work this morning and got lucky that there was a copy .4 miles away. Picked it up when the store opened and it was a complete copy in great condition.

 

Apparently someone had it ordered to that store from another store, but hadn't come to pick it up yet. Just a heads up in case anyone else wants to try and have the game ordered to their local store.

So hold up - you can go to GS and they can order you copies of games they don't have in store?

Yeah, i was surprised too, but the associate told me that was how the game ended up at that store. I asked if they had a copy of N.E.R.O. that they could order and ship to the store as well, and she went ahead and ordered it. It will be there in 2 days and I can pick it up when it arrives.

 

YMMV i guess.

 

Edit: She mentioned at least twice that she is really hoping for the store to become a Prestige store, and to make sure to leave feedback, which I did. Maybe this is why she did it.

Interesting.  That is good to know for the future if there are any other games that are cheap there but never in stock.

I've really been getting the shitty end of the deal lately. No dice from Walmart or Gamestop. When I called earlier, GS told me they can only order games if it's "in stock" on the website, otherwise their warehouse doesn't hold any inventory. My rebuttal that "some guy on the internet told me that you can order it" wasn't very impressive. Fucking sucks.

So I finally booted up Farpoint and I've got to agree with the consensus on this; it's pretty freaking amazing. Holding the gun feels so natural and gameplay hasn't made me sick at all (yet). It's definitely a game to play standing up because you need to be able to turn pretty quickly, otherwise you'll end up moving forward at an angle. I played for a couple of hours but had to take a break because my hand was hurting from gripping the gun so hard (also: I just looked down at my hand and it's bleeding). Do all the enemies in this game really have to be giant fucking spiders with teeth that jump out at your face? Are you fucking kidding me? My skin is crawling!

I was just watching gameplay of this game, and I don't know how I feel about now being able to free move.   It looks like you basically point to a limited amount of predetermined spots and then it runs in 3rd person there, and it's back to FPS view to gun fight.

Well, I beat the Farpoint campaign. Things got sad really quickly from where I left off, although the ending seemed pretty open-ended (or am I missing something?). Despite earlier claims of 3-4 hours of gameplay, I probably got a total 6-7 out of it due to suckage. Anyone tried the multiplayer? I played a couple of the Cryo Pack levels in Challenge mode, but not sure if I want to do Co-op if it's just me and one other player (since I feel like I'll bring them down). Is there an actual story to the DLC or is it the same as the Challenge levels?

At least there's another game coming out that's compatible with the Aim. Bringing the grand total to 10.

 

(Next up for me: Arizona Sunshine with the Aim controller!)

It's essentially time crisis with a little more control. On the upside this is the same studio that made Rush of Blood which makes me think they have good inside in what to put in a shooter. On the other hand, The Inpatient is such an underdeveloped game I fear Bravo Team might be just as lean on features, content, and replay value.

Now there’s a great idea! I hope there is a resurgence of arcade style light gun games thanks to VR. I’ve missed them ever since CRT televisions went away. Can you imagine: Time Crisis VR, Silent Scope VR, Vampire Nihht VR, Crisis Zone VR, HOUSE OF THE DEAD VR!?

I know the wii had some light gun games but, meh. I think they could really shine in VR with the aim controller.

I love rail shooters and if that's how Bravo Team feels, I'll probably buy it. Free movemement is cool for FPS and such but an on-rails type thing like Rush of Blood is fine with me as well. In fact I'd love to see a VR Time Crisis or House of the Dead.
