Yeah but a story told without any rhyme or reason doesn't mean it's good. Changing personalities is just shitty writing.

Not going into a TLOU2 rant but I don't think the criticism is just because things didn't go how they wanted. Also there is way more watching and less gameplay compared to the first, dual storylines is just padding, pandering, forced walking segments, slow chapter openings, jumping states with no gameplay or cinemas, also the ending location was completely rushed etc. You can tell there was a lot more planned for the game. The ending was changed just because, and that's according to the director.

Anyway, for $30 still around 25 hours first time through. People will get their moneys worth. Just wish there were more shootouts.


Yeah one issue I had with the game is pacing. I’ll definitely understand if a player hates it cuz they don’t care for the character you have to deal with for half the game

I don't agree with the less gameplay aspect, or wishing for more shootouts. The one thing that I felt was almost too heavy in the game was the number of enemy encounters, especially later in the game. There were times I was almost exhausted in yet another shootout / enemy encounter that sandwiched a small moment of story.

I will agree that there was likely much more they wanted to tell in the story and pacing definitely wasn't perfect. However, the pacing issues for me were largely due to too much gameplay. It just never stopped coming and I always wanted to get back to the story because it was overall great. Even the second half of the game was fantastic, even if the tone changed. I may have felt different if I ran into every situation with guns a blazing instead of playing stealth though. Playing through with proper stealth really drags out the gameplay segments.

That's odd... I didn't notice a fan.

 

Are you talking about the BestBuy Rocketfish dock, or the Insignia dock?

 

The manual seems to go out of its way to only mention the port being used as "USB out" for charging...

Not sure what else I can say, I swear I'm not lying about my wired controller working with it, lol

Was Destroy All Humans for ps4 already on sale through BB?  Its on the database as being on sale, but the only one on the BB site is the 400 dollar one.

Just a heads up in case anyone still has GCU, the 20% is stacking with all the deals so get some more savings in.

GCU is also working, as of now for those that still have it.

I put in an order for (all PS4 games):

 

Yakuza Remastered Collection

Bayonetta and Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle

Trials of Mana

Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath Kollection

Y:s Memories of Celcelta Timeless Adventurer Edition

Resident Evil 2

Resident Evil 3

 

Best to just put in the whole order now, let it ship, and then think about what I'm going to keep and return later.  These things can go OOS.

And you'd think we'd learn our lesson because when Cyber Monday rolls around, we repurchase 90% of these things for $5-10 cheaper lol.

The free Resident Evil 3 steelbook was sold out for shipping so I just removed it from the cart.  Still a great deal regardless for the game at $14.99.

That's so weird... that's the one I have.

 

I'll try it again, and then try swapping it for another unit at Best Buy.  I've been assuming it was a design flaw, if only because the manual seems to go out of its way to say that the USB port is only for charging...

 

I wonder if there was a revision?

Is WWE battlegrounds worth 20? Not a fan of WWE anymore but I loved all stars, the n64 games and the attitude era

Trials of Mana Switch for $20 is tempting. Really wish Tony Hawk was that price, too.

No. This game is pretty terrible. If you remember the Fire Pro Avatar game that was on the Xbox 360, this is basically that with a WWE license.

Moving Out is good. It's one of those Overcooked and Catastronauts type of games, must be played with other people to get the maximum entertainment out of it.

I have nothing else to buy from Walmart yet I’m waiting for bioshock collection. I should just buy it from BB for $20. Dammit why am I so cheap.

Ehh, it's a bit of a gamble, usually 30% of what you want went out of stock and only a few things really are significantly cheaper.

 

Really missing my GCU tonight. :(

That made me finally bite. If I think about it that way, it’s $20. I just have to worry about forcing myself to play it. Not that interested in it or Valhalla but I might be leaning towards Valhalla more.. ah Ubisoft

Bioshock games were awesome to play. Great deal either way.

If I got the $10 reward cert for preordering the PS4 copy wouldn't I be ineligible for this PS5 offer?

Thanks for the heads up. I didn’t think GCU would apply based on the past couple of BFs but glad I was able to place my order in before BB possibly fixes it.

Only Dragon Ball Z: Kakorat for me. I'd gotten Maneater, Sakura Wars, and 13 Sentinels on early access @ Best Buy.  Destroy all Humans Remake and Minecraft Dungeons from Target.  I'm probably gonna pick up Doom Eternal tomorrow at Shitstop for $17 New.
