HELLO EVERYONE: 

 

HERE ARE MY TWO BITS ON Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition, which is on sale for $16. 

 

This is an A+ game. There is plenty of strategy and it is so much fun, too. If you liked DA:O a lot, you will also like this game a lot. Granted, I recommend using a guide for the first portion of the game, and some of the puzzles are so insane you will need to go online. But, if you read and interact with everyone, you can figure them out, too. 

 

Anyway. My favorite part of this game was combat. Truly a challenging game with plenty of strategy. I loved it. Spent 100 hours on it. Prefer the PS4 version as I like sitting on my couch and playing with a controller. 

 

If you give this game a shot, and like games like this, you will really like it. 

 

I HAVE SPOKEN.

I have a question regarding: Dragon Age: Inquisition Game of the Year Edition -

 

Did they fix the combat? I got it on release and the mumbo jumbo that it was like Origins was a bunch of bull. Did they ever fix this and actually make it tactical? Thanks.

My apologies, then. That's what I read somewhere. I don't have the game myself, so either what I read was misleading or I misinterpreted it.

Nier: Automata lets you buy almost any trophy, but it fits into the game and makes sense only if the entire thing is spoiled.

Also picked up Guilty Gear xrD Revelator. Not a huge fighting game person but do like to play them on occasion and decided on it after reading it was friendly for beginners to the series. That said, I’m having trouble even getting past the tutorial. Some of the moves as simple as dashes seem awfully hard to do. Follow the directions and still don’t get it to do what it should do 90% of the time. We’ll see if it sinks in as far as what I’m doing wrong.


There's really no such thing as a friendly fighting game for beginners. The friendliness of Guilty Gear is probably how robust the tutorial is, so the game helps you learn it's complexity by doing the excercises in repetition.

Honestly, I’ve found some that were friendly enough (Injustice 2, Mortal Kombat X, Soul Calibur V to name a few). Might not be the best at them and handle all the combos, etc. But I do well enough to play the campaigns/CPU and win matches.

And, sure, repetition is needed. But I tried to do dashes for like 20 minutes last night and could not do them with the exception of a few by accident. That’s a basic move — not some fancy combo. Did not seem like the tutorial given was giving the most accurate instructions.

Thank you all for the responses to my question about MLB The Show. I typically only buy from Amazon or straight from PSN, so sadly I couldn't have used GCU for that awesome price anyway. Something I didn't see many people addressing though is if there are any significant differences between 16 and 17 aside from graphics and rosters.

 

If there's no really huge gameplay differences between them, I may opt for the cheaper option in MLB 16 since I sorta want something to play on the side of the story heavy game I'm playing currently, which is Final Fantasy XII. Either that or maybe I'll check out NHL 17 since it's on sale for pretty cheap this week.

 

On another note entirely, Divinity Original Sin looks pretty fun and I'm definitely interested in that "If you liked DA:O a lot you'll like this" because I loved DA:O. Don't have enough Amazon credit atm for both, but I'll definitely look out for that in the future.

I'm not sure what to tell you there. Just practice. You'll get the hang of dashes. It's probably just something in the way you hit the d-pad or the joystick.

MLB The Show 17 has a bit of a different RttS mode with a story to it and lets you seamlessly load into the next game in a series without having to go back to the menus, which is amazing. Franchise mode got some good new ways of playing those games without having to necessarily play every single out. I mentioned the Retro Mode already. They added some new control schemes and an amazing test mode to let you try them out easily to see which you like best. My review has some more specific details and impressions, but I got more into this year's game than last year.

Via the Uncharted 4 Explorer's Pack, after purchasing the Lost Legacy pre-order for free I did get the pre-order theme. I didn't see any signs of Jak and Daxter, but maybe that stuff isn't up yet. I won't mind if I don't get that game. I am getting The Lost Legacy for just $20.

I didn't think I would start playing Lost Legacy next week because the Overwatch Summer event will still be running, but I already pretty much got everything I want. The updated loot boxes and buying up last year's discounted legendary skins at the start really helped.

I think I'll switch to The Lost Legacy's theme to build hype. Makoto Niijima had a two month run.

It's the most "definitive" form of that game you can buy.

 

But sadly the title is also one of the most unbearable dlc/micro-transaction oriented games I've seen.  It has turned me off to even trying to keep up with it.  I think there are two additional dlc characters that have been released after LR that are not included in the base game.

Yeah exactly why I've avoided it so long. Lately i am buying my fighters digital so i figure i should grab whatever is on a decent sale. This seems good. Thanks!

Valhalla nights 3 has trophies you effectively need to buy. One is getting every class to lvl 99. You can either spend dozens and dozens of hours grinding that, or for a buck or two each buy a pile of pills that gives you 10 levels. Disgusting.

I think there was another one too. I actually enjoyed the game and got all the other trophies before discovering how f'd I was.

https://blog.us.play...tures-detailed/

 

The PS4 FW 5.0 beta rolls out today for those that are chosen and they've detailed some of the new features and changes:

 

Family on PSN

 

We’re overhauling the current master/sub-account system, and introducing the new “Family on PlayStation Network.” This new system will offer a more flexible experience for families on PS4 by making it easier to setup PSN accounts for children and customize parental control settings. Below are the new features that will be introduced with family on PSN:

 

Family Manager, Parent/Guardian

 

Family on PSN will allow multiple adults to be part of a single family. The Family Manager can promote another adult inside the family to a Parent/Guardian, who can then customize parental control levels of children’s accounts.

 

Individualized Parental Controls

 

Before this update, the same parental controls were applied to all users on the same console, including adults. But with 5.00, all controls (including game age ratings) can be individually attuned for each child.

 

Friend List Management

 

In place of the current ‘Favorite Groups’ tab, we’re adding a new ‘Custom Lists’ tab within Friends, which allows you to create and edit custom lists of your friends. This makes it easier for you to manage your friends and access specific groups. For example, you can create a custom list of your Destiny teammates and easily send them raid invites.

 

Broadcast feature updates

 

Communities

 

If you own a community, you can now bind your community to your broadcast. When a broadcast is linked to a community, the community button appears on the Live from PlayStation spectator screen. Once a spectator clicks on the community button, they’ll be able to jump directly to your community page to check out the details.

 

PlayStation VR

 

We’ve added a new setting in PlayStation VR: Display Message to Spectators and Spectators’ Comments. Once this is enabled, spectator comments sent during a broadcast is displayed not only in cinematic mode, but also in VR mode. This makes it much easier for VR broadcasters to keep up on comments and communicate with their viewers.

 

PlayStation 4 Pro

 

Good news Twitch users: with this update, PS4 Pro will support 1080p 60fps streaming on Twitch.

 

Messages Improvements

 

You’ve already been able to share your favorite music to Twitter and Facebook via PlayStation Music, but now you’ll also be able to share via messages using your PS4. If your friends are on PS4, they can listen to the track right inside the message by booting up Quick Menu, and if they’re on their mobile device, they can jump directly to the Spotify app from the PS Messages app to check out the song.

 

In addition, if you’re part of multiple message groups, you can now easily leave several groups at once. Just open up Options in the message list, select Leave, and choose the message groups you want to leave.

 

Notifications Updates

 

We’ve added a new setting that allows you to disable pop-up notifications while you’re watching a movie or TV show on your PS4. This setting is off by default, so go to Settings > Notifications to disable notifications and go uninterrupted during your videos.

 

Furthermore, you now have the option to turn off message previews on your pop-up notifications. If you turn this setting off, the pop-up notification will hide the message senders’ online ID and will display a generic user icon and message instead.

 

Lastly, you’ll have the option to change the color of your pop-up notifications to either white (default) or black.

 

Quick Menu Updates

 

If you want to keep an eye out on what’s happening under Notifications, like the progress of your game downloads/installations or new party invites, you can now access this directly from the Quick Menu so you don’t have to step away from your game every time you want to check your notifications.

 

Also, we’ve added a ‘Leave Party’ option in the Quick Menu, so you can easily exit a party and go right back to playing your game.

 

In addition, now you’ll see the system clock in the upper-right corner of the screen when you pop open the Quick Menu.

 

Virtual Surround Sound on PS VR

 

PlayStation VR now supports 5.1ch and 7.1ch virtual surround sound on your headphones when watching Blu-rays and DVDs in Cinematic Mode, making for an even more immersive viewing experience

 

Improved Tournaments Bracket Viewer

 

We have a new bracket viewer that shows full tournament brackets for Single Elimination and Double Elimination tournaments on PS4. This makes it easier for you to see the current tournament standings.

 

New System Language Additions

 

With this update, we’re adding the following system language options on PS4: Czech, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Romanian, Thai and Vietnamese.

So any chance this new family manager setting will lead to being able to gameshare with more than one person? I imagine they're probably unrelated things but one can hope.

Cool, i can finally turn my notifications back to black from the gaudy white that always looked out of place during a game session.

 

Everything else....MEH! 

This seems like a piece meal update that couldve happened during the spring, nothing major here that justifies waiting Months for a big update.
