I've heard good things about Wild Arms. I got a Playstation Classic at a pawn shop recenty and Wild Arms 3 was on there.

wa1 is interesting but I couldn't figure out how to advance forward with the story on the girls route. I assume since they allow you to switch between the 3 protagonists that I needed to go further in the other 2 characters or something.

 

2 is more straight forward and minus navigating due to some sections of the world map being linear one way paths. The bomb collar guys specifically. I liked it the most out of the 3 since it had more characters than the others and I didn't find one I disliked. Also unlike 3 it doesn't use the shitty line group system that dq8, okage and other games do where you can't target all enemies for a target all spell or skill. 

 

3 is super long, has really clunky 3d platforming like most older games. But for the most part it and the bad camera angles were negligible. Minus the rising and sinking platforms one. That was terrible and nearly made me quit the game. The biggest issue for me with 3 is how you have to waste turns to charge your gauge so you can attack early on. Since the starting amount is based on characters levels iirc. Its animation speed and turn length are also on the longer side than I would like.  Virginia is overly preachy and it gets annoying listening to her constantly on her soap box the near entire game. She's similar to Illana Laluna from symbionic titan in that regard. Or Snow Villars going on about being a hero from ff13. 

 

Character balance was also pretty poor in 3. since Virginias main uses are healing or using target all (doesn't always work since enemies are in groups so outside summons you can't always target all) items skill specific to her and her high speed. Gallows is your main mage since he's the only one with a target all version for magic. Like virginia it doesn't always work.  Gallows is super slow though so that hurts him significantly. Clive is your main attacker since he has very high attack power. But he's super slow as well.  Jet is the odd one out since he has high speed close to virginias and all his stats are otherwise balanced making him a jack of trades master of none. 

 

3 suffers from the target all issue games like dq8 and okage have.  Only a select few things actually have target all like summons in wild arms 3, overdrive buff thing from ari in okage, I think a boomerang attack in dq8. So it makes battles more tedious just because of that and how limited you are in doing so.

I think the dream might be dead for me on the classic games. Awfully sparse PS1 selection to start with, and it's kind of lame that they're pushing a classic tier when most of the games are native PS4 ports that already existed.

Yeah, that’s one thing that bothers me from the Asia list is that there are a bunch of PS4 games like Borderlands Handsome Collection in the Premium tier. That is NOT what I want to pay more for when they’re claiming Premium is supposed to have retro classics.

I'm expecting a trophy to set a guy on fire with the taser.

I'm going to be incredibly disappointed if we don't get that.

Ouch. Sites reporting that some of the PS1 games are the PAL versions and not NTSC.

This could be a disaster, did they not see the biggest complaint about the PS1 Classic after the line up was the PAL ISOs?

I get that it's like due to the extra languages, but it seems the best solution would be to make both regions available. I assume they're already making NTSC-J versions for Japan at least.

Sounds like there’s a mix of PAL and NTSC. But, yeah, I don’t know why they are bothering with any PAL after the PS Classic got reamed for it.

It is sad that I could turn on my PS3 and play Ape Escape better than my PS5 if they are PAL version.

So apparently, despite not owning a PS3 or a PS4, i decided to buy a bunch of retro titles during that $1 flash sale back in 2014. Lucky me. :bouncy:

Sounds like it’s a mess for upgrades and stacking over in Asia for the new PS Plus rollout. People being asked to pay upfront fees, etc. Hope they straighten this out before it comes to the US or there’s going to be a huge backlash.

I hope so too.  Stacked up 6 years of PS Now. :-

 

Has anyone seen reports from Asia about the game offerings they're getting over there?  Curious how big the PS1 catalogue is, how much overlap there is between the new PS2-PS5 game lineup and what they previously had on their PS Now, etc.

Do you have a vita\vitatv? Those original ones were cross buy if it's from the same sale that I got them in.

Those are the lists that have been popping up as far as I've seen. 10 PS1 games with several being PAL versions in all countries so far. They have full lists of all available games in those reports and tweets.

When you say "built out" what do you mean? Are you going to be putting these games on a PS Classic?

I logged into my Vita and went through the whole download list and just wrote them down.  Pretty sure I already have them all on my PS Classic.  :P

No idea why I didn't buy those... Really should have.  Hopefully I'll have the chance to rectify that.

The Reddit post is talking about PS Plus members who upgrade to higher tier, not PS Now users. No reason to have doubts yet that it won't work.

Looks like if you paid for a discounted PS+ from the Playstation store during a sale, they add the difference of the full price to your upgrade if you go to a higher tier.  If you stacked years from pre-paid cards, you should be fine. (Not sure if there are pre-paid cards, but just adding that in case.)  If you got a year for $45, they add $15 to the price of each year you got discounted when you upgrade.

Sony is really Sonying this up.

 

Fewer titles than they just advertised and they're doing everything they can to scrape money out of it instead of encouraging people to try it and let the service sell itself. Does not speak to confidence in what they're offering at all.
