Happens all the time with the DLC unfortunately. I've been hoping for 2 years for a sale on the Nioh season pass, especially since the complete edition keeps getting sales

They punish you if you buy a game early now.  You get the shaft when it comes to season passes, dlc, pre-order dlc. 

 

That's why I don't buy games till the GOTY, Complete ect edition.  Usually you get the game and season pass, all pre-order dlc for like 70% off while the people who bought the game early get left holding a empty paper bag with no discounts.

The trade off is I end up being about 6 months to year behind gaming on everyone else.. Hard to beat Assassin's Creed Odyssey Gold for $33 5 months after release vs buying a standard retail copy early.

I said this back in 2014 and I was buried with eye rolling emojis. Following the Sony redemption with the perfectly designed and stable ps3 slim and ps+/myriad amazing sales, the launch ps4's build quality was horrible (bad thermal paste, jet engine volume fans) and the software launched with so many missing and incomplete features - oh and not to mention the number of bugs and hard and soft crashes. Kotaku even reported a year or two later that Sony secretly redisgned the original ps4 and put it under the same sku...disgusting.

Meanwhile they were bragging about sales numbers and how they were better than MS. Now Ms is FAR more consumer friendly. They will probably win next Gen and then become overly cocky again lol.

Same thing happened with Nintendo and the DS/Wii - that's how we got the Wii U (lel) and the piss poor 3ds launch; MS cocky with 360's success so come Xb1 announcement, they're the laughing stock of E3. Either these guys never learn, or us gamers never do.

How'd you say it here in 2014 if you started posting here in 2018?

If I was content with digital I would definitely do the same. As it is, I'm one of those guys stuck on physical media for gaming as I just don't trust the shit I pay for will be there to download from a server 20 years from now. Half the time play the original and then trade off/buy the GOTY versions if the dlc is on disc to make sure I have that in the future. Wish I could go all in on digital, just cant bring myself to do it.

It's a lose lose situation this generation.

 

One of the reasons I have gone all digital on PS4 and Xbox 1, (still physical switch) is because most AAA discs are coasters on day one since most games have huge day one patches this generation.  Nothing worse then having the disc and still have to download some crazy multi gig patch.  

 

I see having the disc as useless if you don't have the game installed on a hard drive with all the patches installed.   

 

So even if you have the disc in 20 years if you don't have the game on a hard drive with all the patches, you will most likely have a broken game.

 

I think having the game on a hard drive with the patches more valuable then having the disc, since games don't play off the disc this generation.

Thoughts on stellaris console edition?

One of my favorite PC games. If the $30 flash sale price were for the deluxe edition, I'd be downloading it already. $45 for something I've already got just to play it on console, though...arm not being twisted hard enough.

Remasters have made the playability of a lot of older games lackluster...older physical games are more for collection purposes nowadays.

Currently, physical games are really only ideal for retail discounts and resell...if you keep your games and don’t focus on being a CAG then digital convenience trumps discs for most people.

I brought Assassin’s creed odyssey steel book gold edition from Ubisoft for $54 Black Friday That was less than two months after it released.

So, realistically, what are the chances we get a similar or even better deal than this on AC Odyssey Gold this year? I would be back-logging it so not sure if I should pull the trigger now..

Is there anyway to have just the patches downloaded, without having to have the entire game installed?

I have an external 2 TB drive plus my internal 1TB drive. But I also have 72 physical games and there is no way I can keep all of those games installed on a permanent basis. If I could just have the patches downloaded, that would suite me fine.

As far as I know, currently there is no way. I wish you could, but some of these patches are the almost the whole game. 

 

Might want to get a 6,8 or 10TB to backup, you can get one between $80-$150. 

 

Since you can't play from disc, I went digital.

 

I currently have like 550+ games on three hard drives for each of my 2 xbox x.     And  about 350 games on my PS4 Pro.

 

I also just bought this week a extra 8TB hard drive that I will use to keep all the xbox game pass and EA access games I do not own on.

Does Ace Combat 7 still include 5? Some people have reported it does. If anyone here buys it, can you confirm it does?

We had that a while back when it was $29.99.

It seems like there are Ubisoft sales every month, so I wouldn't worry about that.

Same thing happened with Nintendo and the DS/Wii - that's how we got the Wii U (lel) and the piss poor 3ds launch; MS cocky with 360's success so come Xb1 announcement, they're the laughing stock of E3. Either these guys never learn, or us gamers never do.


This all sounds like the cuntish musings of housebound homebody whose mind has been enfeebled by the dozens of cats, and piles cat feces that solely keeps him company. My launch PS4 still purrs like a Cougar.

Anyway, can’t wait for Metro!

Is this a good price for GoW, or have we seen $20 or lower?

Digital has been $21.99, and physical was $17 at GameStop during the holidays. The current price isn’t bad though.

Has anyone played Taiko no Tatsujin with the Dualshock? Is it still fun, or am I just gonna be sad I don't have a drum controller?

Holy crap, that Taiko DLC shop is pure evil. So much good stuff... already spent $10 just on the essentials. Heck yeah I wanna play Magical Sound Shower.

I’ve been playing over the weekend and I’d say it’s as good as you’d expect from playing other rhythm games (like Project Diva and such) on it.

It’s got a couple of button configurations to choose:
-2 where it uses the bottom two directional/face buttons for the drum center inputs and the other 2 directional/face buttons plus the Ls and Rs for the edge of the drums (switching what the middle directional/face buttons do)
-and one where all the directional/face buttons work as drum center inputs and LR serve as the drum edges.

I personally find the latter to be easier to learn and play with, but I haven’t ventured beyond Normal difficulty quite yet.
