When I was trying to buy those last few lemonade stands my hands were literally shaking.

Download Yakuza 5 now, play it, worry about buying if there's ever a time you don't have PS+ and you want to play it at that time.

King of Fighters 14 classic Kyo costume showing up as free in store Not sure if this was meant as a code in the box or just free upon release (like Guilty Gear stuff) considering it was advertised as a "preorder bonus" during every trailer of the game.

 

Also a 1 penny KoF 14 Dynamic "Gals Fighters" theme Could also be a price mistake and meant to be either regular theme price or just plain free. It's also very....dynamic?

Looks like the 1 penny theme was meant to be free. Calling support immediately to get my money back!

Hexcells is a great puzzle game. A gem, don't sleep on it.

 

That Playstation bundle is nuts. Will probably go top tier for the MMLC coupon/DMC trilogy/RE0HD.

Can anyone confirm what happens if you put in a key for a game you already own from a PS+ freebie?

You can try having Sony chat support remove the licenses of the PS+ games from your account.

Jesus, why are there so many different editions of this game? Even 2 seems excessive, but 3?

Buy the game for her with your Best Buy account and just have her pay you the cash back. Best Buy will get it there on release day.

 

Then collect your sweet, sweet, $10 certificate.

 

Looks like you get it 4 days early when you preorder?

Sounds like other people were having trouble with Amazon preorders not arriving on release day.

 

Don't know why someone would choose the $100 version unless they really want that Kobe Bryant stuff.

The PC version of NMS has terrible optimization. I can max out the settings for a game like Witcher 3 (with HairWorks enabled!) and I have to tweak the settings and mess around with it a ton just to get NMS playing at a tolerable FPS. Still lots of draw in. Then after about an hour it will randomly decide to crap out and require a restart. No surprise people don't like it.

 

On the plus side, you can remap sprint to L3!

 

I don't feel too bad for the people who complain with "I've put 30 hours into it (in less than 1 week) and now I feel bored!"

 

The honest answer is it probably shouldn't have been a $60 release. A $20 release (and a whole lot less hype) and it probably would be receiving tons of praise for what it does. This just feels like the foundation for NMS2.

Yeah, we've talked about it.

At this point I'm wondering which will be the worse flop, NMS or FF15. Hype vs 10 years of development hell.


At least with FF15 people should know what they're getting themselves into. If after two demos and knowing what modern Final Fantasy games are like you're surprised or disappointed by 15 then it will be your own damn fault.

With NMS there seemed to be a lot of unknowns and misinformation (true multiplayer like Hello Games said there would be? Nope.) to go along with the hype. It had really been built up in everyone's heads what the actual gameplay would be. Now we play it and realize it's mostly inventory management hell with some bad flying and exploring planets that have only been palette swapped with all the same plants and rocks. It feels a bit like Mass Effect 1 without the Mako.

I think if I walk away from it for a few days I won't have much desire to go back to it.

Noticed Best Buy did a stealth change on my Iron Giant Collectors Edition blu ray order. Now listed as the standard blu ray at the same $10 price. Not surprised it was fixed, but just a heads up in case you want to change your order to Amazon for free shipping etc.
