  1. For me, it was just not worth it. The game is amazing but as you progress into the later stages of the game, it starts to crash a lot more. I got to the point where I couldn't change zones without it crashing. I would have to make a save before attempting to pass between zones. To make matters worse, the game would also crash on me when I tried to make a save. I found myself saving every few mins to not loose anything. I got to a point where the game would not let me make any more saves. I then had to upload all my saves to the cloud then start deleting and hope my last few were not corrupted and would load. Once I hear that they have made updates to the game, I plan to go back and finish it. It is well worth it if they fix it.
  2. A couple weeks back I watched a video where they did a short review about the game. They sported several in game videos about the overall gameplay. For the most part it received pretty good reviews, minus the third person player/ crew battles. There was a moment in the review where the person made you feel like this would be a great game for under $10. I was waiting to see if I could find it half off in one of the upcoming PS sales.
  3. I feel like that is not the only thing they cheapen out on. There are so many things in the game that I feel polished off so much better. The platforming is one of them. It is just not very smooth when climbing and a lot of surfaces appear flat but for some reason when you stand on them you slide off. Maybe its just me, but the game in general doesn't feel the same as the last one.
  4. They are both very similar. Port Royale will go on sale soon. I would just hold out until it drops to $40. Especially with the holidays around the corner. There are a couple moments in the campaigns that can get a little difficult. There are a couple scenarios where I felt like they didn't quite prepare you well enough. But, with a guide, you know what is coming, so you can start preparing early. I tried to map it out well. You seem to have an uphill battle when it comes to wartime. I always feel like I am constantly at war with other nations. For me personally, I don't feel like the game was very hard. I gave it a 4/10. If you have never played a Port Royale game, then it would probably be a 6/10. But, there's nothing very difficult. If you have any trouble, just let me know. I will help walk you through it. The only time anything is hard is when you do not understand something. For example, you need to make a metalware business produce at a level of 110%. If you do not already know (the game does not really explain it well) that you need to have the business next to a residential to game a 5% bonus, plus it needs to be next to a raw materials producer (in this case, a coalmine) to gain an additional 5%. But the coalmine can not be near the residential or it negates the bonus it gives. It is just things like that. It is very important to make a manual save at the beginning of each group of task that the Viceroys gives you, you should be fine.
  5. Yes it is very similar to Railway Empire. However, unlike Railway Empire, Port Royale starts getting pretty laggy late game. I am kind of a perfectionist with games like this. So I have several trade routes active with several convoys running tons of cargo to different towns for raw materials, plus I have convoys taking finished product and selling it off. So, it's not uncommon for me to have well over 300 convoys running trade routes. Plus, I like eliminating everyone from the map so I am the only Country left and all the towns are mine.
  6. I actually have this game sitting on my coffee table right now. I just can't seem to force myself to play it. I don't know why but I am just not interested in it right now. In fact, after reading about this race and how it is a huge platinum trophy blocker, I just don't want to waste my time. It is not even about the trophy so much as it is the fact that I am the type of person who wants to platinum a game. I know something like this will make it frustrating and upsetting. Do I really want to do that to myself?
  7. Yes definitely! I couldn't agree more. The first is by far the best, the second is really good still, but the third and fourth are nowhere near as good. They are still entertaining though. They are now offered in English dubbed but I would not recommend watching them like that. I preferred the subtitles.
  8. I see that you finished Railway Empire. I love that game as well. They have it on sale right now for $30 I believe at Target and it comes with all the DLC. I am thinking about picking it up. I have finished the game and a couple of the DLC but not all of them. Since this too is another Kalypso game, you kind of know what you are getting. I agree, there are not enough of these games out there.
  9. Welcome to the party. It's never to late to join the wonderful world of PlayStation. You definitely picked the right website/ forums. This place is amazing.
  10. I just watched that IP Man 4. Those films are amazing. After seeing the 4th one, I had to go back and watch the first two again. I was not a big fan of the third one. But the first and second ones are a masterpiece. They did a great job with these films.
  11. I just finished the second season of The Boys on Prime. When I saw the preview for the show, I did not think it would be anything I was interested. But it actually turned out to be pretty decent. I am not sure if I mentioned this before, but a show that was way better than I ever imagined it would be was Cobra Kai. I ended up watching the first and second Karate Kid movies (of course I skipped the third one because it is terrible). That kind of inspired me to check out the TV show. I was very surprised at how good it was. The previews did not give it justice.
  12. I am actually looking forward to this. I just hope they do a good job with this remake. I fell in love with the original the first time I saw it. I need to sit down and watch it again. I should also read the book but I just don't have the time for that right now.
  13. Yeah, I agree. Multiplayer trophy boosting groups are completely different. I don't even look at boosting as anything bad. Most multiplayer trophies are ridiculous to begin with and without a boosting group, you could spend countless hours trying to get them. I always help anyone looking for help. But they have to put in the effort. I am not going to do it for them. I downloaded a really crappy game awhile back. I finished it and had someone ask for help. The game was digital and very large. I had to clean up some room just to redownload it. I had to download it at night and leave the PlayStation on because I didn't have the time to download it during the day. All that just to play for less then 2 mins to help someone with a trophy.
  14. I spent a large amount of time playing Call of Duty multiplayer, especially when I was younger. I don't even want to imagine how much time in total for all the games in the series. I am glad I kind of outgrew that game. I still play them every now and then, usually when friends want to play.
  15. That's very kind of you. Thank you. I understand. If I was not a huge fan of the game, I would not have paid full price for it. These usually go on sale a couple months after release, so you can probably pick it up for $30 - $40 during the holidays. I really enjoy the game and thought it would be nice to write a guild. I always felt when you finish a game, why not help others to do the same? That way they can enjoy the game as well. For this one, there are some parts in the campaign that can be very difficult without a guide. So, hopefully it will help.
