True, but that's a lot of waiting though.


I decided to pick up MK 11 with the target b2g1 preorder and redcard for $40. I suspect that I will trade it in at GS after playing for almost a month and wait to rebuy a discounted goty down the road.

This strategy has worked well for me lately. Between promos and the guaranteed $30 I seem to either get a couple dollar monthly rental or make money...games such as GoW, RE2, Metro Exodus,
etc

Anyone have problems logging on the PlayStation.com website? I’m trying to claim the free MlB theme and when I log in nothing changes? I’m able to log on to the app fine and make
purchase through there.

Yeah, it’s super buggy. I had to manually enter the codes and then turn my iPad vertically (didn’t work on my phone) .

Are we not getting a trade in offer for MLB the Show this year? Seems like Best Buy usually has one.

Sony is going to start their own streaming game service, as well as announce a new slew of games and maybe a new console on Monday.

I mean they already have PS Now and it's trash for streaming.

Not sure if I can think of a better in-game mini game.

Also means if a title is removed from PSN without any warning due to a license expiring, there won't be any other place you can buy it from quickly before they run out of codes.

Can Kaz and House please come out of retirement?  Ryan and Layden are really making some poor decisions over there.

 

Side note on Emerald Shores, the game made by fellow CAG Josh1billion. I got the platinum last night, and the game is actually quite fun, definitely much better than the 4/10 review score CornShack gave it.  Going for the low level run trophy, I attempted the final boss at level 6 and couldn't get it done.  Luckily, this was on my 3rd play through so I hadn't done some of the side levels yet and was able to go and level to 7 which was just enough to beat him.  Side note, 1-3 is super frustrating and might be the hardest level in the game.

Looking at Senran Kagura Estival Vs and Peach Beach Splash.  Not sure I am going to pick up both right now but will probably get one.  For anyone who has played these titles, any recommendations on which one to start with?  Thanks in advance for any advice.

Frisky has Neurovoider listed as crossbuy but can anyone confirm that it is? It’s not listed in the description as crossbuy on the PSN store page and folks on reddit say it is not.

It's not cross-buy.  I bought the PS4 version in June of last year.

 

Wasn't a fan of the game TBH.  It has a really drab and boring art style.

 

As far as twin stick rogue likes go it's probably my least favorite.  I much prefer The Binding of Isaac, Neon Chrome, Enter the Gungeon, and Nuclear Throne (bugs and all).

I'll be doing a Fallout 76 stream at 8 PM ET since I got that for just under $4 and I want to see what the state of that game is after the work they've put into it since launch.

It's not, but it's worth it for $4.

Well, they're two different types of games.  PBS is more of a third-person shooter, while Estival Versus is more of an arena-style hack'em up game.  Bunch of mooks come at you in great numbers, you slash them all away and then take on their boss.  I own both, but have only played Estival Versus so far.

 

Estival Versus was a mixed bag for me.  On the plus side, you've got a bunch of cute girls that you can battle until they're completely naked, plus the storylines are pretty funny and for such a huge cast of characters, they all seem to have their own distinct personalities.  On the negative side, I was majorly taken aback when I found out that there was no English dub (despite the anime having one), it got to be incredibly irritating the way they made adult-age girls act like five-year-old children most of the time, and because the game is very long and the gameplay itself was so repetitive, that I was just counting down how long until I could be done with it before I was even 75% of the way done.

 

Also, none of the DLC characters matter or add to the game at all since they don't add any extra storylines with them.  When you play through the each of the stages the first time, the game chooses who you play as.  You can go back and play the stage as many times over as you wish with a different character, but why would you unless you missed a collectable the first time around?

 

All in all, I'm glad that I played it, and enjoyed it for the most part, and will likely get Re:Burst when the price gets low enough.  However, by the time I was done with it, I was so burned out on it that I was just happy it was over.

I haven't played Estivel Versus yet but I did play Neptunia Action Unleashed which is from the same developer and has basically all the same systems/mechanics and this is more or less how I felt about that game as well.

 

It didn't really have the depth or the variety to keep itself entertaining for how long it was, but, it was great as a game to play when I was just watching some youtube/listening to a podcast or whatever.

Are they completely naked? The ESRB rating only mentions partial nudity. Anyway, maybe ackbar7 can shed some light on Peach Beach Splash. I'll admit I've been interested ever since that Devil May Cry 5 censorship discussion.

 

I've also been looking into the Gal*Gun games: should I get 1 or 2 or both? Asking for a lonely guy.

Didn't play much Peach Beach Splash yet. Pretty much what has been described here only as a meh 3rd person shooter. The hack and slash, I'd guess, is a little better in terms of gameplay. There is a VR piece to PBS that I haven't tried yet, that I think has you groping at the various characters from the game.

The characters are completely naked, but you're not going to see any of the good stuff because they do use glowing balls of light to cover all the naughty bits.  One character describes it in-game as being some kind of special shinobi magic that automatically activates to protect their modesty.

 

I hear Gal*Gun 1 is supposed to be the better of the two.  At least Gal*Gun 2 doesn't have an $80 piece of DLC to put all the girls in their panties like the first game does.

Are Dreamfall Chapters and Dead Island any good?

Dead Island is pretty dated honestly. I tried the remastered versions maybe a year or two ago, and it just is kind of clunky and a bit boring. The story and characters are very poor though it was cool when it came out because not many zombie games were out at the time. I'm almost 100% sure Dying Light is the way to go for the zombie games. It's average and would likely pick it up for like $2-3 each game.

I actually backed Dreamfall Chapters on Kickstarter because I really got into the storyline for Dreamfall: The Longest Journey when I played it back on my original XBox. I’ve played Chapters all the way to completion and really liked it, but I’ll add this caveat to saying that: if you go into it knowing that it’s pretty much a point-and-click adventure game with an enjoyable story that may require you to check a walkthrough guide from time to time, it’s well worth the price. If I remember right, it took me about 15 hours to complete.

You don’t really need to have played either of the first two games to enjoy it, either. The game shows you a recap video at the start to help make sense of some things for you - but checking YouTube or reading up a tiny bit may help some in that regard, too.

I just looked at the Drop for next week, and there are a ridiculous number of RPGs coming out - Trails of Cold Steel, Nelke & The Legendary Alchemists, Outward, Path of Exile, and Siralim  3, all for PS4.  There's also the Grim Dawn expansion and Grimshade on PC, and Operencia on PC/Xbox.  I've seen clusters of RPG releases before, but I don't think I've ever seen a week this packed.

 

I hadn't heard of Operencia before your post but it looks like something I'd like since I love the Legend of Grimrock games and the old school ones that inspired it. On vacation from work next week but still won't have enough time for everything I want to play.

Interesting. Very interesting. I was not aware of this. I may have $80...

I picked up Emerald Shores (gotta support a fellow CAG) and Song of the Deep. Still thinking about getting Dirt 4 and will be picking up my pre-order of MLB The Show 19 MVP Edition at GS soon.
