  1. January - February - March - April PSN store card - $30 May Manifold Garden (PlayStation 5 Physical Edition) + shipping - $49.77 Total: $79.77 AUD
  2. Maybe Druckmann felt weird about killing off a titular character he did not create. Uncharted is Amy Hennig's thing.
  3. Valkyria Chronicles is the easiest one I've played.
  4. Do you have a number on that? I also heard they lost a good portion of the experienced animator crop because of the harsh crunching but could never tell if that number was in the realm of a dozen or 50+.
  5. OS: Windows 10 Pro CPU: AMD Ryzen 3700U GPU: Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx RAM: 32GB DDR4 Storage: 512 GB m2 SSD | 2TB 2.5" SSD | 366 GB microSD I used to have a laptop with a better GPU. GTX 1050Ti. Bought it in 2017. After two years, I swore off gaming laptops for their un-optimal build quality and bought into the business laptop hype with the numbers you see above. Haven't looked back since.
  6. Eat Dirt; just do a sidewinder bump with boost. Good places to do it are at the beach or when you're entering the storm drain.
  7. Not love but in 2016 I connected with someone who lived in my city, through Journey. She first accompanied me from the bridge right to the end then helped me get (I forgot the official name for it) my white robes. After some messaging I found out she was seven years older than me (so she was in her 20s) and lived in the same city. We met for coffee near my university and one thing led to another. The relationship never went too far because of our schedules, I was focusing on a challenging year in academia; hers was work which left most of the time, the weekends to travel and meet...on top of everything else we wanted to catch up with in life. It ended within five months after a mutual agreement. We still talk from time to time, content with being mates. My only regret is that I lost the save file for the white robes haha. Too lazy to get it back cuz I'd rather focus on my current plat runs and backlog.
  8. It manages to be better than FFXV and XIII, despite its core mechanics being locked to PSP-tier technology. As a fan fiction writer, I'd love to revisit it.
  9. Ever since they changed Peter's face, my investment from the series went from 'I'm mildly engaged' to 'Pick up at discount bin' for the sequels. If I ever do buy it anyway, with the onslaught of backlog and other interesting games coming out (which is why I haven't bought MM). That aside, I'm pleased for Insomniac.
  10. Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time.
  11. No. For the sake of my sanity, I place the benchmark at 33.3% overall completion for my library.
  12. Heads up; there's a rumour that MW3's remastered version is going to be announced this year. The Raven Software-esque treatment.
  13. I envy those who are experiencing it for the first time in native 4K/60Hz. Most of Days Gone's shortcomings were attributed to technological limitations and optimisation. A common critique the game head was that some people thought the first act was too slow but I disagree with this since I've been gaming on PS One and games in those time (and they were good and interesting to play too) did not need to crutch on short term dopamine cycle rewards to prove a shallow merit. Days Gone does what it does to get the player into the headspace of Deacon's world.
  14. lol if some litigious Australian gamer ran into this problem, the laws here would make sure Sony gets fined like what happened with the illegal (but very American) refund policy.
  15. We Got This Covered is full of shit. That website is even blacklisted on Discord servers I'm in because of their lying streak.
  16. It was my first Remedy game. I'm pleased with their care to the craft of a single player game.
  17. The only reason I haven't played it is because I am expecting a PS5 upgrade. Want my first time experience to be through the enhancements, for a game of this scale.
  18. Fall Guys Infallible Drakengard 3 Deflowered DOOM A Toe into Madness
  19. Weathering With You. It was a 'lame out of 10' for me.
  20. If I vote to redo a Gang Hideout (like Pike's Basin), do I lose the XP I gained from that first run or does it go cumulative into the next redo?
  21. PS5 outselling PS4's pace. My man.
  22. January - February - March - April PSN store card - $30 Total: $30 AUD.
  23. Bound is about overcoming childhood trauma. I guess that might count to mental health?
  24. Not really. A more correct conclusion is: Gamers like different cultures and kinds of games Therefore, Ecosystems of exclusivity cultivate a democratic market where the sensibilities of the consumers dictate the trends. Irrespective of what kinds of games I prefer (and mind you, my own tastes for interactive entertainment aren't 1:1 to what PS Studios produce, it's more of a Venn diagram), the bottomline is that Sony's majority market share proves what a greater slice of the pie are choosing from the exclusivity offerings. I could suddenly prefer games as service tomorrow and the market share would barely shift an inch. Not true, as per the above. And this balks at Yoshida's PS Indies initiative, among the other long list of indie exclusives which have been brought like Journey or Bound. Just because TLOU is famous, it doesn't mean the dozens of other unique titles are wiped from history's existence. I am (as everyone else is) complicit in how prolific such games are.
  25. My main topicality was about exclusivity itself (and to a mild degree, the consistency of Microsoft across varying products and services) and because PlayStation has done much better than Xbox in this regard, of course the write-up favours PlayStation on that issue. If I wanted to do an Xbox vs PlayStation in gaming division as a whole, write-up it would have different coverage of course
