Any thoughts on transistor ps4 and risk of rain ps4?

Should definitely pick up Transistor, made by Supergiant Games who did Bastion.  Can't see the price but it's definitely a good pickup.

 

RIsk of Rain is mindless fun and pretty good if you like a roguelike platform shooter.

Really tempted on Hyper Light Drifter at that price, but I'm not sure I want it on PS4 versus X1 or Switch.  It's not yet out on the Switch which seems like a great fit for that type of game and it probably I'm guessing runs the same on PS4 versus X1.  Decisions, decisions...

I also have a Switch, so when buying games I consider a couple things:

First - trophies. I’d rather get the trophies for the game, so if it’s on both, I’ll get it on my Sony console.

Second - the Switch tax. EVERYTHING is more expensive on Nintendo consoles. First party especially, but third party too. Nintendo seems to like that bigger cut and is pretty unwavering about it.

Third - how it runs. If it’s an indie game like this, it’s really your preference, but if it’s a AAA game like Wolfenstein, there’s just no way I’d pay more for a worse version of the game.

Had the same thought, but then remembered it will take 3-4 years for the Switch version to get to this price.

I live in a no sales tax state.

Which state is a no sales tax state?

Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon.  I remember as a fairly young kid visiting my great uncle in Delaware and was surprised they had no sales tax.  He was close to Maryland and when we went to stores there they collected sales tax.

Supreme Court Widens Reach of Sales Tax in E-Commerce

How long before we're all paying sales tax on PSN...


I paid sales tax on a Google Play purchase this morning.

Did you use Play Store credit or a CC? Reason I ask is because when I used Play Store credit no tax was charged. When I used a CC to buy stuff then tax was charged. I'm in NM.

Used credit.  I bought a $10 GC at Staples (no tax).

Hmm... I wonder if they were starting to roll out paying tax on both Play Store cred and CC purchases. It's been a few months since I bought anything so it may have changed here in NM.

New Hampshire sounds tempting with no sales or income tax. Their property taxes are fairly high though.

Just grabbed Nex Machina on Frisky's recommendation.  I'm a sucka for SHMUPs, especially dual-stick and bullethell.

Basically that you're just required to do the same exact thing 4 times in 4 different areas. There's no ability upgrades as far as I can remember, and the combat is really not that great. It just got boring for me really quickly.

Just import Breaker 3 if you want the action-RPG/customization element (it's all in English) or play Gundam Versus if you want that kind of arena battle gameplay.

 

It is seriously insane how terrible New Breaker is. I can tolerate a mediocre Gundam game, but this is straight-up the worst game I've played in a long time.

Let's say I've got a physical copy of Horizon Zero Dawn but it's the EU version. Is that going to be compatible with the Frozen Wilds DLC I bought on my US PSN account?

Nope for sure on different region DLC. One of the reasons I keep a Singapore account for my Asia releases.

That's what I thought. I got HZD for Christmas and wasn't going to play it until the DLC went down in price. Took a closer look at the game last night and it seems they ordered the EU version by mistake. Way too late for a return, guess I'll have to find a way to sell it so I can buy a US version.
