So how was it?

 

I didn't get a chance to play it until today.  I played the first 3 levels, the first 2 which were shootouts and the 3rd which was more stealth-focused.

 

The graphics are good, but the game suffers from other things that I don't like.

 

1.  I know a lot of people complained about the constant switch from 1st person to 3rd person view.  That doesn't bother me so much.

 

2.  I'm not crazy about the whole "move from one pre-determined point to another" approach.  I didn't think it would be so bad, but you are very limited to how far you can target your next move so I felt like I was constantly having to move 3 or 4 times just to get to where I wanted to be.  It also makes me question how good Blood & Truth will play considering it uses the same movement system.

 

3.  The game does a poor job of telling you where you need to go.  On every level, I wasted a lot of time just trying to figure out where the goal was, which was especially difficult in one level because the enemies would not stop spawning so I never really had any time to focus on where to go.  At one point (in a bridge level), I even lost track of which direction I came from and wasted to much time trying to figure it out.  Going back to #2, free movement would help here as well.

 

4.  Throughout the game, I noticed I was constantly twisting and turning my back to try and hold off all of the enemies.  Now this may very well have been my own fault, and there may be a better approach to this that I didn't utilize, but it was very strenuous on my back.

 

5.  Tracking using the aim controller was pretty poor.  The gun would not stop veering to the right.  Again, this may not necessarily be the fault of the game, though, as I know other games that use the aim controller have the same problem.  Also, I found it often difficult to hit enemies that were more than 10 feet away from me.  I don't know if I was just too far away or if the game just does a poor job at aim accuracy.

 

I'm honestly not even sure if I'm going to finish the rest of the game.  If anyone wants to buy it from me, though, I'll consider all offers.

Lame.  All I get are 3rd party sellers when I click the link.

 

I'm not dying to play it, but at $10, I figure what the hell.

Pierhead Arcade is a must-buy IMO.  I've been playing that game a lot lately and it's a blast.  If you're into carnival/arcade style games, I strongly recommend it.  It also has 2 bowling lanes.

Apparently Sega Mega Drive Classics got a VR patch today.  It basically puts you into a virtual bedroom from the 90s where you play the games on an older TV set.

 

Not really what I look for in a VR game, but I'm sure some people will like it.

everywhere man.  The Doom bundle was $199 and the Skyrim Bundle was $249.  Hence ppl got into PSVR like crazy.

 

I even PM my Target order to Costco and dropped it to $25 less from the Skyrim Bundle.

 

$199 is not much less than $209

That's not even a 10% savings.  Why do people get so excited over such shitty deals?

There's nothing more entertaining than people on the internet fighting.

There are special deals.  PS+ members usually get deeper discounts on games that are on sale.  But lately, there have been a lot of PS Plus-Only sales which I don't agree with.

Gunjack is a great game, especially for just $2.

I've been playing Arizona Sunshine for the past couple of nights and I have to say I'm really enjoying it.

 

I avoided it for the longest time because I thought it was just a poor-man's Farpoint.  Also, I've never been a fan of zombie games.  Then I decided to pick it up when it was sale a few months back, but hadn't tried it until yesterday.

 

So far, it's a great game.  Nice selection of weapons.  I remember being worried when I heard that the game was designed without the aim in mind, then they added a two handed mode for aim users - I thought it was going to be a poorly tacked on mode, but I was clearly mistaken.

 

Tracking is pretty good, I had some tracking issues yesterday, but none today.

 

I really like the setting in the desert.  I am currently underground in the mine and I was in awe when I got to the part where you can see a little light shining in from a hole above and what looks like dirt blowing around.  I just stood there for a few minutes staring.

 

I would strongly recommend it to anyone who doesn't already own it and is looking for a game to play using their aim controller.

I like Volume.  It's one of the first games I bought.  It's got a bunch of levels where you play from a 3rd person perspective (kind of like Moss) and have to move your character through different stages without being spotted by guards.

Don't Knock Twice is down to $14.98 on Amazon.com.  Seems like a decent deal considering the normal price is $19.99.  It's been cheaper when it was on sale in the PlayStation Store, but still seems like a good deal for the physical version.

 

I'm tempted at this price.
