I'm really tempted on Bersaria. I've had my eye on it for a while.

Highly recommend the Naruto bundle for $17.50. Lot of games for the price and it's only $5 more than the complete edition of the latest game. Also, new price low.

I had my eye on that when it popped up for the same price during the Xbox anime sale.  That led me to discovering a useful site - https://howlongtobeat.com

Darkest Dungeon is an amazing game with great developer support. I will definitely buy Darkest Dungeon 2 day of release.

I went to rent Robin Hood at a Redbox today, and I was given the choice of a free game to rent, so I chose Spider-Man.  I'm not sure how much of it that I'll be able to play tonight, but I'm pretty excited.  At the very least, I'll get to see what all the hype is about.

Was it compensation for renting Robin Hood?

It's a massive improvement in nearly every possible way from the disaster that was zesty.  But it still takes place in zesty's world so that part is still around.  At least they finally bother to explain why zesty's world is a shitfest but that's in the secret dungeon which is too little too late.  I don't want another game in its setting but it definitely needed on to fix things in their world.

 

The only negative I really had personally for berseria was that none of the characters from zesty were present besides zaveid and one or two npc's who for all intents and purposes might as well have been a different character.  It also adds too many plot holes like how rocko and lou were not in zesty but should have been.

Haven't played any other Tales games previously, but am enjoying what I have played so far, I think I'm about halfway through the story. The story and the characters are quite enjoyable, it's a nice change of pace that they are more of anti-heroes.

It's the best JRPG of this gen IMO. Characters are fresh anti-heroes, story takes thematic and emotional risks, battle system is great (which is par for the course when it comes to Tales games). 

 

Honestly, I was burned out on Tales after Xillia 1, but Berseria blew me away.

Somebody sell me on Superhot (non-VR) for $15. 

 

Or should I wait for it to hit <$10? I saw dunkey's review of it the other day and it looked sweet.

It’s a lot of fun, played it on Xbox when it was free. I’d suspect it’ll come to plus soon but maybe not. I’d only recommend it under $10.

I think I may trade in my physical copy of Bersaria and go digital. Probably is my second favorite Tales game after Versperia.

Two questions about Tales of Berseria:

1. If I've never played a Tales game, will I be missing anything?

2. Are there difficulty settings so that I can set it to "I'm old and just want to experience the story without getting my ass kicked"?

1.  No.  In general the different tales games do not overlap in terms of story.  Slight exception to Berseria, which is a distant prequel to Tales of Zesteria.  Zesteria is an inferior game though and not needed at all of to enjoy ToB.  There are just some little connections and references you'd appreciate having played ToZ first, nothing major.

 

However if you enjoy ToB I would really recommend getting Vesperia Remastered, which is the best of them all.

 

2.  Yes.  You can set difficulty to easy and even turn on auto battle and watch the game fight for you if you'd like.

Tales games aren't particularly hard IMO, so I'm not sure I'd recommend auto-battle like the other guy. I'd just try it on normal, tbh. I'm 99% sure you can change difficulties if you find it too hard. Someone else who does it can correct me if I'm wrong, but the newer Tales usually have that option.

Thanks guys! I may have to check it out based on that and the overall high praise it seems to get.

I borrowed Fire Pro Wrestling from my local library this past weekend. The controls were frustrating and the graphics were awful (reminded me of the Sega Genesis days). I have never uninstalled a game so quickly and really happy I did not purchase it. The WWE(Year) games are always entertaining, especially if playing with a friend.

 

The controls are based on timing and not button-mashing. The graphics have not really changed over the past generations (ps1 era and later). However, both have been accepted by its fans. The quality of the game is great once you get used to it.

It's one of the coolest shooter experiences I've ever had. The VR version is even cooler.

Dreams is getting a Creator Early Access launch this Spring for $29.99 that is intended for creators that want to get in early to help shape the game. They say it'll be a limited release so that they can limit the amount of people they're getting feedback from.

To further clarify, you can change the difficulty at any time while in game. There is a weakness mechanic that makes the enemy take more damage if you use all the attacks that is weak against, this is not present in easy mode (doing weakness combos is required for the platinum trophy).

 

There are also some abilities you gain later (such as increased chance for the enemy to drop an item they have not dropped before) that only work when you set it to a certain, higher difficulty. Higher difficulties mean greater chance for enemies to drop loot and more currency.

. Higher difficulties mean greater chance for enemies to drop loot and more currency.

Higher difficulties also change the items that can be dropped by an enemy.  What does increase drop rates is chained encounters and finishing an enemy with a mystic arte along with the rocks dropped by story bosses, optional enemies and equipment/titles with drop rate increasing skills.

 

But even then the drop rates are horrible if you are going for specific equipment.

I think new equipment was bugged or something considering I had the set ups for getting new equipment to drop with the stones for specific difficulties and many enemies took 20-30 kills just to get their unique equipment.

I cannot believe the lack of customer service I’ve experienced on the ps store. I always knew it was bad and they had some arbitrary one refund ever for people but after two chat conversations with rep and manager which involved them defending the undefendable. I think I’m done spending my money on there.

Long story short, I bought ticket to ride and the first class pack after the recent sale. The game description speak about the levels, tutorial and give the impression that it’s a ps4 game only In small type below the copyright do you see mention of the app. Upon install you notice it’s a playlink only game, something not labeled clearly like other playlink games and can’t be played without it. No options to play solo or couch coop or internet at all.

Manager today legit said that the description says it needs an internet connection to download the app even though the next sentence is no internet connection required to play. They legit wouldn’t give back credit or anything. It’s beyond maddening on principal alone. They could’ve just admitted error and gave me credit. I even contacted the developer who agreed it was mislabeled. I’m a bad taste in my mouth never again consumer that I may now switch from digital only to disc if I get more games.

Yup, that's been my experience as well. They're cheap and stingy and don't mind pissing off the customer because they know they have us all by the nutsacks. Last time I dealt with them was regarding a 20% off code I had that didn't work. They said they would replace it as a "one-time" gesture. Sure enough, the replacement didn't work for me either. When I contacted them again about it (basically my initial issue still hadn't been resolved), they reiterated it was a one-time thing and they wouldn't offer me another replacement. I ended up selling it on the PSN code thread, but I could have used the larger discount towards an entire cart purchase, which I did not end up getting out of spite. In the end, both sides lose, but of course I'm just one lowly person and I don't mean jack squat to their bigger picture. Whattaya gonna do? :-(

Don't even get me started on how anti-consumer Sony is becoming. I feel like I'm turning into chrislaustin Jr., except he actually likes Nintendo deep down and I don't feel that for Sony.

Was it a code that comes with a PS4 console? If so, those have to be entered on the PS4 store itself, won't work on the web store or app on phone/PC. Not sure if that was your issue but just a heads up for the future.

Last time I dealt with them was for a refund on a game I'd never even played or installed. The customer service guy acted like I was trying to steal money out of his wallet.

No, it was just that unwritten rule that you can't use two codes from the same promotion or with the same expiration date. It was a console code I bought online, which I wouldn't have had to do if they would release 20% off codes periodically like they used to.
