#14349750 Best Buy Black Friday Deals Available Now - Ends Sunday

Posted by adam81 on 21 November 2020 - 03:55 AM

Yes it’s GOTY contender. It’s either that or ghost of Tsushima but I’d pick Tsushima for more fun. If you’re not one of those people who cry about things not going your way story wise, you’d appreciate it. It’s a story being told their way not a story to please fans or a fan service story.

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.

I don't really follow twitter but it feels like whenever I see him respond with things like "we're losing money on this", "barely breaking even" or "we're not in it for the money" and then I also see his amazing personal collection- I just sit and think about those televangelists who ask for money from their massive, opulent churches. 

 

 

By this point people know the LRG guys spew BS. They pretty much have since the beginning.




#14325770 PSN Weekly Deals - 11/20: Black Friday & Games Under $20 Sales end 1...

Posted by adam81 on 19 September 2020 - 05:31 AM

Guys, I just don't know. I'm trying to play Sekiro but I just can't get it. After like 10 deaths I finally took out the guy guarding the first gate in the game, only to be one shot by rando dudes on the other side. Now I can get past most of the randos only to be destroyed again by some hammer swinging troll/giant within seconds of seeing me.

Is this one of those games that is more difficult at the beginning before you start opening up skills and enhancing your life bar or is this pretty much what to expect from the whole thing? If it is I don't think I have the energy to knuckle up and git gud, and I'd rather just move on to something less soul crushing.

If it makes you feel any better, it took my 12 year old nephew 70 to 80 hours to get the Platinum trophy. Watching him play it didn't look that bad. You just have to break the enemies posture.

 

I've played through games like Ninja Gaiden Black, Sigma, DMC highest settings, Shinobi PS2. Just haven't got around to Sekiro. Waiting for that PS5 60fps backwards compatibility. 




#14324176 Playstation 5 Pre-Order Thread

Posted by adam81 on 17 September 2020 - 03:43 AM

To be fair, exactly three retailers jumped the gun. BB has not been officially live, Amazon has been silent, and many of the other retailers around the world have not started either. Sony set expectations, and at least three retailers I know about broke them. Realistically, it was just Walmart with others following the "broken street date" rule. Sony is not to blame.

Best Buy's Twitter said PS5 preorder is live like 3 hours ago.




#14319529 GameFly: Used "The Last of Us 2" (PS4) $30

Posted by adam81 on 05 September 2020 - 07:42 AM

Not going to discuss the questionable story bits.  Jayinem above did a good job of some things.

 

A couple other problems is that there is way more story and walking simulator moments in this game compared to the first. It makes subsequent playthroughs a little bit of slog. Abby's opening chapter bits are incredibly slow. No one gives a shit about Owen showing her the Aquarium. 

 

Also the ending location was completely rushed. No explanation of a lot of things. Nice change in environment and looks great though. I will say the final "event" was pretty terrible. Unrealistic, drawn out. It's one of the games where I like it and don't at the same time. Some of Ellies choices in this game are dumb and that's the writers fault. I noticed in interviews since release no one asked Druckmann any tough questions about the characters and such. Gameplay is good, just wish there were more minute to minute shootouts. 

 

Oh, and turn off the film grain. Looks a lot better now. 




#14319075 Super Mario 3D All Stars (Physical) up for preorder

Posted by adam81 on 04 September 2020 - 05:27 AM

This should be $40. Nintendo's "remasters" and ports are mostly lazy upscales.

I'm a bit surprised they didn't include some form of the soundtrack with the CE.  If they did I would be buying it.  Music plays a prominent role in the game - it makes little sense the CE doesn't include a soundtrack.

 

I realize Josh stated they didn't include the soundtrack because the CD soundtrack in Japan retails for $40; however they could have included that soundtrack in this CE and removed a bunch of the other fluff to keep the price close, or just included a version of the soundtrack with less songs. 

Well, it wouldn't be a LRG CE if it didn't include overpriced Happy Meal junk right?

I'm more pissed about the fact that they aren't talking about these new games being Xbox One X enhanced. I'm not playing Halo Infinite at 900p or less when Xbox One X could easily be the same visually as Series X just with a lower resolution. If these rumors are true they can go Fuck themselves.

A little late but SSD is the only way to go for PS4 Pro and Xbox one X. Mad for waiting this long as i only bought one a few weeks ago. I'm using a WD 1tb external SSD and it cuts the initital load of AC Odyssey from about 1:45 to 52 sec. Fast travel from 45 sec to 15. Noticeable on every game.

In my own mind, I demonstrated commendable restraint today. I held myself back from getting the Monkey Island CE, and settled for the standard-edition with the long box, instead. I even avoided getting a copy of Rebel Assault. It's not the worst Star Wars game, but its also far from the best, and I don't feel that I need the Sega CD edition. Not 100% restraint, granted, but pretty good for me. (I can't overstate my rabid love of Monkey Island)

 

If they put out Snatcher in a similar release, I'll be there with bells on. I was one of those poor sods who never had a Sega CD back in the day, and was late to the Kojima weirdness party. I have emulation-supported means of playing Snatcher, but I have never been able to afford an original copy. And if they manage to get Konami on the hook for Snatcher, that opens up the possibility of other Sega CD and possibly even PS1 titles. Suikoden 1 and 2, perhaps?

 

I really wanted a Sega CD when it was new. When the Model 2's with Sewer Shark were being clearanced off I saw one at Fred Meyers for $59.99. My parents wouldn't buy it.

 

Anyways in  2001 I bought a Genesis\CD combo and around 40 games for $190(good luck now)off of Ebay. Some good ones in their too. Soulstar, Robo Aleste, Final Fight, Heart of the Alien, Android Assault, bunch of others. Nothing super rare, but all complete. Around that time I bought a good amount of new Sega CD games from Ebay. In 2010 I got Lords of Thunder, Terminator, Earthworm Jim among others.  I have around 70-80 of the 159 US releases. I'd hate to be a collector.

#14253638 A Plague Tale: Innocence (PS4/XB1) - $19.99 at Gamestop

Posted by adam81 on 07 January 2020 - 06:49 PM

I've probably shopped at Gamestop less than 10 times since the merger. They still send open games with online orders. Not to mention they completely fucked up an order from a couple of months back.

 

Gamestop is dumb Fuck employees, slimy managers and practices. Dirty ass customers, druggies etc.
