In Topic: Best Buy Weekly Ad 11/6-11/12: B1G1 40% off select X1/PS4 games

  • Free Sausage Party Blu-ray or 4K UHD & T-Shirt with purchase of any PlayStation 4 console

PS4 Pro can't use 4K UHD Blu Ray discs, neither can the PS4 for that matter.  That's like saying buy an Xbox One, get a free PS4 game.

Blarg. Okay, since I couldn't really find the differences.. what differences are in the versions? Not like I'm going to shell out the bucks on eBay for LRG's version, though. Not sure if I want to order a copy, though.

 

It's an Asian release, so more than likely the accept and cancel options are swapped.  Asia and Japan releases use O for accept and X for cancel while all other territories use X for accept and O for cancel. 

 

When playing Bloodborne, X is actually dash and roll, while O is pick up/open.  Atleast on the PS4, you can use the accessibility option to customize any button to any other button.  Certain games like Alienation have a way to customize the controls, so you can swap O and X in the options menu, and then swap O and X on accessibility, so the way the game was meant to be played is still playable.  Other games like Gundam Breaker 3 has thrusters as X and no way to customize that to a different button, so if you change the controls in accessibility, then you change the controls in the main game, so in that case, you may as well just stick with the default controls. 

 

So if the Vita can do the above listed like the PS4 can or the swapped cancel and accept doesn't bother you, then go for it.  That's probably the only difference other than like others said, different trophy list potentially.


In Topic: *DEAD* Dragon Quest VIII (Android) *FREE* @ Amazon

You guys know the real reason it was free right?  To get as many people to buy it free as possible, so when Dragon Quest 8 bombs on the 3DS, Square Enix can blame us for the reason it didn't sell and point out that's why they're not localizing anything for us in the west unless the game has Final Fantasy in the title.  Nintendo is publishing the title, Square Enix probably made their money from selling off the publishing rights for this version.

 

If you ask me, Square Enix should do this.  Final Fantasy SaGa: Scarlet Grace.  Final Fantasy:  Adventures of Mana(then sell it at retail.)  Final Fantasy:  Dragon Quest 11.  They'd sell to all the blind fanboys who buy anything that says Final Fantasy whether it's good or bad(Final Fantasy Explorers for example.)  It's not like it hasn't worked before with Final Fantasy Legend and Adventure.


In Topic: Bravely Second $24 at BB with GCU

Repeat of last month's deal. I take this as a sign that further reductions are coming. It seems the consensus is this game fell short of the first, so I'm settling in for the CAG wait.

While some of the games complaints come from people who have actually played the game, it's mostly people who haven't played the game that make the most noise.  I'm only 12 hours in, but for anyone who's interested.  The dialogue at times is better than the first, which also had the rare moment of good dialogue, however there's points in the game where the dialogue is really cringey.  The world map on the second game is identical to the first, but most of the accessible areas are new towns and dungeons that weren't in the first game. 

 

The gameplay is the same, but it's a bit better developed imo.  When playing Bravely Default, unless it was support, you probably used a magic user just because, not because it was an integral part of your team.  Attack magic on Bravely Default was just pathetic, doing worse damage than pretty much anything physical you could muster, while costing MP and other stats being so poor.  You'll be glad to know that magic on Bravely Second is actually good, so unlike the first game, it's actually worth taking the penalties in your other stats this time around because you'll actually be dealing damage that exceeds that of your melee characters this time around.  Maybe two handed and two sword will be a bit too much damage to overcome, but I haven't had to equip two rods yet to make my magic useful either.

 

Bravely Second may or may not be better than the first based on my time playing it, but it's just as, or almost just as good as the first.  Easily among the best RPGs on the 3DS and of the generation.

Not sure if anyone's seen this, but either cross dressing is finally in Pokemon or she's got Pokeballs in her pocket.
