  1. My wrap up for 2019...

    The hours played are waaaaay off. No idea how they calculated that.

     

    1) im 100% sure my number one played game was Tekken 7.

     

    2) There's no chance in hell I played this much borderlands or RDR 2. My RDR 2 was around 160-170 hrs and borderlands perhaps just shy of 100 hours. judgment was around 90 if you include my second playthrough. (See screenshot below). Kind of bummed out with the inaccuracy but oh well!

      My top game was black ops 4 with 1,000 hours but I'm pretty sure I played a bit more then that, it might be because some of it was while I was offline.

      Jesus xD

       

      That's like the entire amount I spent playing last year haha

    4. Precision-Playyy

      Precision-Playyy

      Yh I had a slight addiction to the battle royale on there, it's worn off now though haha

  2. Started Steins gate 0 and I'm 4 hrs in. I'm liking it. 

     

    So many people including me thought it was a prequel to the first game but it's actually a sequel with some prequel elements. It's weird like that because of the time travel concept but it definitely relies on you playing the first game in order for you to understand what the hell's going on and to care about some of the ramblings that could happen between the characters (which sometimes drags a little bit too long not going to lie) but then you're rewarded with the cool bits that ensue afterwards for sticking this long basically lol. 

     

    Anyway, the game picks up after an alternate ending ( not the true ending) of Steins gate exploring the "what if" ending which might feel a little bit stupid at first considering that the way Steins gate ended (true ending) was perfect and there wouldn't be the issue with the current situation that we are having right now in Steins gate 0. 

     

    But anyway, that aside, I haven't been this hooked onto a story for so long now and it's one of those where once you take a break, your head feels like a jumbled mess to process everything that you experienced in the last few hours! 

     

    Hopefully the climax and the events of this game lives up to the first one. So far pacing, character building, etc have all been on par and I like where it's heading. We'll see if it changes so until then!

      ok that makes sense, I now the first one got a ps4 re-release but I have to be careful with my spending fo a bit so I'm working on my backlog for a bit I get it if i see a very good price on it 

    3. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Yea no worries, tackle the backlog first. 

       

      As a side note I actually didn't purchase the first game. I played it for free on the ps3 since it was given for ps plus users. It was given in Dec 2018 if I remember correctly.

       

      Steins gate 0 on the other hand was always expensive. Base price was around $50 CAD for the longest time but then as soon as it went on sale for about $20 I purchased it. Digitally though, couldn't find a cheap physical copy

    4. Yuna4353

      Yuna4353

      Yea I remember that the re release if sg on PS4 is $60 totally waiting for a cheaper price 

  3. So... I saw this on Reddit today and I had a small hysterical bit because I feel like I sound like this :P. Do I sound like this? I probably sound like this :P

      For the pocket racing? Yeah, I didn't get that till after I had finished with it. :P

       

      Probably blocked it out of your memory. :/ 

       

      Well, like I said, I think it's harder than 4 and Dead Souls. They had some tricky spots, but I don't recall struggling that much. Kiwami 2 isn't even UR, so I can guess it's way easier. 

       

      Does Fantasy Zone return? I sure hope not... 

       

      And no. xD Unless it's in the final chapter, I must have missed it. 

    3. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Kiwami 2 was the easiest out of them all that I played. So much so I barely used a guide (went in blind for about 3/4 of my play time) besides looking a couple of times to see what substories I need/ how to make money for the end game grind (it wasn't bad). 

       

      But yes... Fantasy zone returns but as I said before the score needed aren't as high as 0!

       

      Regarding ya"kuze" (you're past it so it's safe to look :)

       



      Lol it's just a play on words because basically of how many times you have to fight this guy despite kicking his ass so many times. Reddit always has a field day with him and my favourite meme of them all is this 

      3a50sr.png

       

      Nothing major but I just found it funny because this dude never quit and I laughed so hard every time his badass theme comes up with the writing displaying his title before you start fighting him for the nth time hahaha

       

      He was the runner up as my favourite character and could've been my number one but he became so memefied that he lost his edge lol. 

       

    4. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      Well, if the score is lower, it shouldn't be a problem. I've made it to 85k. 

       

      And ah, it's a play on words.

      :P I should have gotten that. :/ But yeah, it's pretty ridiculous how many times you have to kick his butt. Lol.

  4. #129 and 100% 🍹 Bird on OpenMoji 12.0🐍 4

    Use your imagination :P. My full thoughts below. I liked it overall but it had its issues which I talked about in the MRP post and it also had bugs.. Lots of bugs..

      No kidding, I saw the emojis and thought, "Damn, I didn't know Tropico 4 was on PlayStation." :P

      That's what I got from those emojis. :awesome:

       

      Congrats on the Platinum. 👍 Too bad for the bugs, though. Those can definitely ruin the experience and break either the immersion or the fun, depending on the game.

    3. Copanele

      Copanele

      @PooPooBlast I had a look at your backlog ( damn what a fine list there is) and honestly you really don't have many options there xD I could recommend going for either Prince of Persia Sands of Time (really easy plat) orrr...do the 100% for L.A. Noire! I saw you did not complete that one. They shouldn't take you that much.

       

      (You could also repick Demon's Souls and get into the Souls world of pain that I enjoy just sayinnnnnnnnnnnnn' )

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      @Honor_Hand thanks! Lol here's the thing, the bugs in a way, made it more enjoyable lol. They weren't gamebreaking but they did make me go WTF haha. But yea in this case they added more to the fun because JC games are about mindless destruction ;)

       

      @Copanelehaha thanks. Thing is, any game you see on my profile atm just means I won't go back to it for various reasons. So for example some due to server shutdown (ex WWE 2k14) or because I just didn't enjoy the game enough to proceed with the plat (ex demon's souls, Bayonetta, destiny, TLOU, burnout, etc sorry lol) or because I simply suck at the game and it's hard for me (again demon's souls, Wolfenstein II, max Payne 3). 

       

       

      My backlog atm literally consists of the games I listed above. It's below 10 games, I think I have 6-7 games that are in my backlog, 2 of which I can't play (Yakuza 6 and dead souls) until I play Yakuza 3-5 for chronological reasons. 

       

      Regarding PoP I hated it!!!! It was so atrocious that I had to stop playing it. The sound quality was terrible. It was very echoey and I had a lot of sound glitches such as stuttering and looping of sound effects. It drove me insane. It's an old game so I understand but I'm not putting myself through that. 

       

      Regarding LA noire, that's a good pick (don't ask why I never 100%ed it.. I don't know either) except I sold the game :/.. it's been years.. and I don't think I'll repurchase the game just for a few measly trophies. 

       

      Anyway, thanks for the suggestions! I'm going to choose SG0!

  5. I was looking forward to getting rage 2 in the future but the more I read about it the more dissuaded I get. it feels like a complete turn off to support such practices even if the game looks appealing

     

    It's almost exactly the same situation I had with steep, a few status updates ago.

     

    Basically the deluxe edition doesn't get you everything... you have to buy the final expansion separately which costs 500 rage coins or $5... On top of that if you want to buy the DLC you have to freaking buy it off the Bethesda store which I believe entails creating a Bethesda account using rage coins...

     

    And say I buy the base game only for cheap and then purchase the DLCs separately, I find that the first DLC that comes with deluxe edition costs 1500 coins ($15) and the only coin options are 500 ($5), 1100 ($11), 2500 ($25), 4500 ($45)... Yikes... What a flipping scam.. and the cherry on top is that your coins expire within 180 days if you don't use them. GG Bethesda.

     

     

    Oh and happy new year guys! :lol:

      But I mean that's the thing though.. it's like they test the waters first with a scummy move and if people swallow it they just move on unless there's some serious backlash as you mentioned in which they frantically work to fix it.  

       

      And oh yea those were American dollars. Add $2 extra to everything I talked about for CAD dollars lol. 

       

      I'm going to wait for a hard sale on the deluxe edition before I buy the game and if it never happens, oh well! 

       

      Anyway don't mean to end 2020 with a negative status update. Cheers man and here's to a good 2020! 🎆🎉🎈

    3. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      Ugh.. I wanted that, but now am not so sure. Lol. If I could get everything except that one $5 DLC in a complete package, maybe I'd do that. Then get that one, if it's not too much of a hassle.

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Yea seems like that's the cheapest option. Kinda like FFXV, buy royal edition (equivalent to deluxe edition), then buy Arden dlc (equivalent to the $5 DLC not included in deluxe edition). 

       

      Atm if I do that everything will total up to $42 CAD. I'm going to pass for now. 

  6. Just Cause 4 First impressions

     

    Feels like an inferior game to just cause 3 despite some of the refined mechanics.

     

    First the good:

    - solid framerate vs the atrocious framerate in just cause 3. 

    - great loading times and much better compared to just cause 3

    - great variety for your grappling hook

    - great vehicle selections and handling of such vehicles. No longer feels like I'm sliding every second off the road. 

    - beautiful looking world (although it can be a miss sometimes with bad character models and muddy textures in some areas). 

     

    Bad:

    - No grenades or C4s!!! WTF?!!! This is a just cause game! 

    - lack of good RPGs early on or just explosives in general. There's too much reliance on the grappling hook to cause the explosions or mayhem. 

    - the explosions look a little scaled back because I noticed that the particle effects have been reduced from just cause 3 and the smoke doesn't last that long. Also the size of the explosions seem a little reduced but nonetheless explosions are still great. Not as good as jc3 but still good enough. 

    - There are wayyyyyyyyy too many stunts. They get repetitive pretty quickly and I have no idea why the devs had to saturate the maps with those. This is probably the worst offender..

    - finally, it's sooooo buggy. In a couple of hours I managed to capture a few clips of just pure chaos on my screen. At least they were pretty funny and nothing was game breaking but it feels like it was added as a feature :lol:

     

    Overall so far, I'm not that impressed but I am enjoying it whenever something batshit crazy and unexpected happens. I've only played for about 10 hours so far so hopefully it gets better.

      LegacyJKO09

      well JC3 is in my library.  been downloaded since psplus. 4 however has been on sale and reduced to 15$. i keep on debating it. Seems like still buggy. Is it worth $15? 

    3. cckerberos

      cckerberos

      @LegacyJKO09 I'm hesitant to pick it up as both JC2 and JC3 showed up on PS+, so it seems likely that JC4 will as well.

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Oh yes one more thing, no more base liberations this time around. Instead you'll be doing something called region strikes to take over area and then deploy troops to secure such areas. I still prefer base liberations. 

       

      @LegacyJKO09 I really don't want to be the person that tells you how to spend your money and also potentially make you feel disappointed if you didn't like the game. I'll leave it up to you but I'll tell you my opinion. And actually first I highly suggest you try out just cause 3 first to get an idea of what this game might feel like. 

       

      I bought the gold edition for $30 and so far I'm okay with that. In terms of bugs, I feel like they're most prominent in the wonky AI. So far instance, you'll sometimes have AI that freaks out of no where and a mini crowd may sprint into you and cars just running over everything haha. Or that enemy AI may get stuck in a funky animation trying to bypass a blocked path due to destruction rubble that wasn't there before. 

       

      But yea so far nothing game breaking and I feel like it's the destruction and the enhanced physics of the game that's creating those bugs. 

  7. #128: ✊ 🇰🇵 ⭐ 🔎 🌴 

     

    Loads of fun to be had! Combat never got stale and I couldn't get enough. Also because I must make an obligatory ATATATATATA joke for playing this game, I decided to create this video :P

     

    Here are my full thoughts if you're interested :)

      Well done! 💯

    3. RJP_X

      RJP_X

      was the battle cries trophy highly missable? i think that's the one you have to avoid being too strong for. congratulations. not sure if you can knock it off early on before getting too powerful to miss it. 

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Honestly man, it wasn't bad at all and it was pretty easy to get.  I've encountered more missable trophies than that before. 

       

      All you have to do is do those combos on regular common thugs and large thugs in Eden and the rest of the map regions if I remember correctly and finally to just use :circle: I believe on a giant thug? (I have to confirm this). 

      :circle:

      :square::circle:

      :square::square::circle:

      :square::square::square::circle:

      :square::square::square::square::circle:

      :square::square::square::square::square::circle:

      aerial hit then press :circle:

       

      But yea basically it's pretty simple and you'll be given the option to go into the wasteland pretty early on which means that enemies will be your level. Later on once you unlock better buggy parts to be able to access otherwise inaccessible areas, then you'd go and do the same. 

       

      The final area which is the southern dunes, the enemies are veeeeeery high level that it's impossible they die too quick, even in a maxed level 99 ken with a few limit breaks.

       

      And finally as I said before you can just easily hit the air first, build up your combo then press :circle: on a thug so that you don't kill them in your initial combo. 

       

      That's it!

  8. Fist of the North Star lost paradise or should I say "fisting up north between your thighs till you apologize."

     

    The grind is ugh. I love the game which is the only reason why I'm going through with this but I've held off the story for a while now in order to catch up with most of the minigames ( I like to save the best for last or close to last anyway).

     

    You have to do something like 100+ duels (or fight the same person about 9-14 times) to get the materials to max out the talismans. And you also gotta race the same track ( due to highest points) a shit ton for the materials. And you also have to repeat a cabaret club mission a bajillion times to pay off a ludicrously high debt you've accrued. 

     

    Tldr: love the game, annoying grind but I'll stick with it!

      I mean every yakuza game has that grind. I just bought the game myself since it on sale for the cheapest I have seen it gone down to in (even on Amazon it expensive then its is on the holiday sale), glad you enjoyed the game.  I did watch a few episodes of the anime and man it an oldie.  

    3. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      @Yuna4353 Nice! I hope you enjoy the game! It was lots of fun imo and I liked it better than kiwami 1. Combat feels challenging and is pretty satisfying once you master how to pull every move on purpose lol. 

       

      Also as an update, I finished all casino requirements and gathered 900k chips. The roulette method was wayyyyy too random for my liking and I only used it to get ~200k chips. Afterwards it was just blackjack from there and me saving my progress every 50k chips earned or so. 

       

      Overall I need ~360k or maybe more coliseum points if I decide to not farm one certain annoying boss for his augites. As for the debt, I need ~85M but I already have like ~23M that I can give. And finally for racing I need ~60k points. We're getting there... what a massive grind man.

       

       

       

       

      Oh and Merry Christmas guys!

    4. Yuna4353

      @PooPooBlast Yea I just started it, and playing it up for a change with the English dub, and yea the combat is a nice change so far.

      ShonenCat

      @PooPooBlast Not sure if you are aware, but there is a Kiryu skin for FotNS you can get from the PS Store 😂 Also, if you’re playing with Japanese audio, Kenshiro has the same voice actor as Kiryu ;)

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Yea I installed it but then I decided that this is Kenshiro's story so I didn't use it. And yea oh yea definitely I noticed kiryu's VA :P

       

      The "nanis" by Kuroda in the "non-audio dialogues" always get me :lol:

  10. Heck yea!! :)

     

    Just got the surgical precision trophy in the fist of the North star. I was really really addicted to this minigame and it was just pure fun experiencing some of the classical music remixed and "modernized."

     

    My god though the last 3 songs! Song number 6 gave me trouble because the register of the buttons and their timing is off beat. (More on that below!)

     

    Number 7 was difficult due to the buttons you have to quickly press in sequence without messing up the timing. 

     

    Finally Number 8 was just pure hell due how fast paced the music piece is. So for those who dont know, the number 8 song was Turkish March, a classical music with PLENTY of off beat timing that you have to nail and it can really throw you off.

     

    Thankfully and I really mean thankfully :lol: is that my brother is a musician (as a hobbyist though) and he played that song so many times it's engraved in my head so I was able to understand the rhythm and timing eventually! 

     

    Not to mention, I had a flashback from highschool band where I was the trumpet for the music piece "three minute Nutcracker." Essentially this classical piece has an offbeat tempo for percussion (2:47 below) which hopefully gives you an idea what it's like and I remember drilling this over and over with our school band for the Christmas show. Let's just say this payed off as well :lol:

     

     

    And here was my run! (sorry I set my record option to 1 mins only so this is as much as I am able to show!

      It’s interesting how you ended up liking this mini game so much that it pushed you to getting it’s trophy pretty early in your playthrough. I remember putting mine off for a good month of so before building up enough determination to getting all those perfect combos. Turkish March was insanely hard, but yet I prevailed as well :D I think I would of given up a long time ago if this game didn’t have “Fist of the North Star” attached to it’s name. Congratz on pulling it off, it’s pretty much all down hill from there. See you at the talisman grinds 😋

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Haha yea man. Funny story actually, I was going to spread them out during my playthrough (I like to spread out the minigames to not burn myself out or finish something thats fun too quickly) but because I was having major success in the first 5 songs I decided to continue and finish it already because I felt like I was on my best that day and if I waited for some other time I might miss that "window" lol. 

       

      And thanks man :). I hope so! Right now the Colosseum is kicking my ass.. the electric cage mission just sucks donkey balls. All it takes is for you to get hit with one punch near the fence to stunlock you (and get dealt MASSIVE damage) and there goes like half you health :/. 

       

      But yea I've still a looooong way to go in the game. I think I progressed a little too far in the story for my liking because as I said earlier I like to spread out everything but unfortunately every time I wanted to do something it just so happens that the story locks me out and until further progress... 

  11. Tekken 7

     

    Let me just say Lucky Chloe is beyond broken (being able to juggle about 3/4 of your health!!!)

     

    But anyway, I had the biggest satisfaction of beating one today. Went from losing 3 in a row against an opponent to winning 4 in a row and making him quit after figuring him out but kudos to him and for granting me rematches.

     

    I can definitely use one of those right now! ( In light of the recent cat pic inspired by Mr Supersaiyan himself :P )

      @Copanele absolutely man, would love to help :). But first finish your backlog of games :p. I don't want to be responsible for making you buy stuff you won't play :P

       

      @DamagingRob oh believe me, I'm like that too. Play a game, plat it, move on to the next to experience new things as much as I can. 

       

      However with Tekken, idk man , i use it for mini breaks. I hop in for a couple of minutes, do a couple of matches and log off to return to my duties. It's so accessible you know? 

       

      Lol sometimes my minutes can turn into more than that which I'm guilty of a number of times especially after a heated rivalry.

      Update:

       

      Worked my way to #5 getting ranks S, A and B separately in each song (rewards don't stack apparently) and decided to call it quits for the day. I go on to intervene against some goons, I kill them, the boy gives me a reward and the game crashes..... My last save was an hour and half ago... RIP.. (the clinic minigame transitioned directly from the storyline which is why I never got a chance to save). 

       

      Well I'm certainly done for the day but at least it's still a damn fun minigame though.

  13. Fist of the North Star

     

    I love it when games put a swappable cover! I was just wrapping up a session yesterday and was opening my case to store the disc and I noticed that the insides of the case (the paper behind the blue plastic had some drawings on it). I took out the art piece and to my surprise, not only did I discover a swappable cover but I also saw there were stickers in there!! Judgment was the other game that did that as well!

     

    Here are some pics :)



     

    Swapped cover

    Original cover with the stickers

    Regarding the game itself, I'm having a blast! Bartender ken, the substories, the combat , and main missions are pretty solid and fun. 

     

    My only complaint so far would be that the game takes fooooorever to finally open up like a traditional Yakuza game. You're really constricted in terms of roaming around up until chapter 4-5 I'd say and even then you're still locked out of some stuff to do. I will cut them some slack though as there are a bunch of "tutorials" to introduce the new minigames and gameplay mechanics which can get overwhelming so they probably didn't want to jam everything at once. And also I feel like they created a story first and then they decided to add the gameplay elements around that based on the linearity initially.

      Enjoyed the humor and battles but those mini games, those mini games

      Yes!!! Even my copy has the interchangeable cover. That was a nice touch from the producers of the physical copies! 

      Make sure you slap enemies with that Hidebu xD

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Yea the interchangeable cover is pretty awesome. As for the stickers, I doubt I'll use any( because I wouldn't even know where to stick'em).

       

      And haha every time I mention FoTNS I get comments about the minigames. It can't be that bad right? :lol: right? :hmm::hmm:We'll find out soon I guess! 

  14. Man! Fist of the North Star's combat is pretty epic and the whole presentation imbues so much testosterone I feel like I'm growing hair on the palms of my hands :lol:

     

    23:40 - 26:05 was just 👌👌

      I don’t know about the 100% in game. That Sega mini fighting game is tough! Plus it would add many hours of extra grinding. Getting all buggy parts, pfff...

       

      Also, doesn’t Mein Leben runs takes around 3-5 hours? I’ll find out myself pretty soon, as I’m going for it as soon as I completed Trackmania Turbo.

    3. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

       Lol the sadist in me kind of loves it lol. Judgment's 100% took forever and was pretty challenging but it felt sooo gratifying man. 

       

      Regarding mein Leben lol to be honest I pulled those numbers out of my ass. It's my estimation. I estimated based on my I am death incarnate run. That one took me 11-12 hours. I figured there's not that many hours to cut from that because during that run I knew where I had to go so the only possible decrease in time could come from becoming better I suppose? 

       

      Idk, I'd estimate maybe 7-9 hours?? 

       

      But yea man keep me updated in terms of how long it takes you :). Good luck! 

    4. Yuna4353

      Yuna4353

      Honestly not having to get 100% in a yakuza game is a joy to me just because it is time-consuming. At least with Yakuza 6 it had it "grindy" moments. 

  15. #128 Wolf.. I kid I kid :P 

     

    I am satisfied with 99% completion at the moment. I can't see myself dedicating too much time for the mein leben trophy. If that was maybe 5 years ago, I would've gave it a solid shot just like I did with Max Payne 3. Dedicating 8-9 hours (aka a whole day) is not something I can easily do. And even if I can somehow make it during the weekends, If I die, say 4-5 hours in, there goes the time you made for mein leben! Can you imagine this epic fail happening to you while nearing the end?! :lol: (yes this happened to me but thank goodness it wasn't on mein leben). (Also.. my spoiler tags aren't working properly... so I apologize in advance for having to open spoilers within spoilers)

     

     

     

    I really liked how the DLC broke it into chapters making it much more manageable to do the dlc mein leben trophies and even making it fun/challenging tbh! If the main game did it this way, it would've made it much more manageable to do it in chunks.

     

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    Anywho, I really loved this Wolfenstein. Gunplay is as good as ever and is super satisfying blasting everything with your weapons. I captured this short video while I was going for one of the DLC challenges which almost made me tear my hairs apart! But the end result was satisfying and it gives you an idea in terms of the gameplay I suppose :)

     



     

     

    Story-wise was eh, so-so. I preferred the New Order here. There were also a couple of loose ends that weren't concluded such as

     



     

    the golden object thing from the Da'cht Ya'chud (I think that's how you spell it) that Wyatt/ Fergus finds.

     

     

    So...There's definitely going to be a sequel :P.

     

    Finally, it wouldn't be a post of mine if I didn't leave behind some soundtracks and oooh boy there were lots of goodies! (though there are some that don't sound as good to listen alone without playing the game because of how often they loop when they were recorded vs dynamically switching the soundtrack depending if you were in stealth or combat). And one thing to note is that Mick Gordon (the artist) really likes to build up his soundtracks so they usually start slow. Enjoy!

     



    This one here is one of my favourites. It plays in the main menu and it's actually a remix of the New Order main menu theme!

     

    Full badassery on display here especially in the combat sequence it plays in. Too much testosterone to handle :lol:

     

    Again, another badass theme!

     

     

    This one here, is just hilarious. It is actually a fictional band whereby the beatles (Die Kafer) were forced to make music for the Nazi regime. Enjoy the lyrics :P

     

    These last two are epic when you're blasting nazis left and right but I am not sure how they stand up on their own. In any case, I'm posting them here for you to decide :)

     

     

     

    Aaaand that's it folks. I'm planning to start Fist of the North Star next. I figured I'd play one more Yakuza-esque game before the yakuza trilogy remastered physical copy arrives in Feb 2020! Then it's probably JC4, another title I'm excited to try after enjoying JC3.

      @Yuna4353 one hit = dead in a shooter game would be just utter madness :lol:

       

      And as for FoTNS, yea I'll be going for JP audio first with English subtitles and then I'll give English dub a shot just like I did with judgment. Can't do English dub first when kiryu's voice actor is involved! 

       

      And actually no I haven't watched the anime! I just know that the game was from RGG studios so I'm going off on that. And yea of course! I'll be posting my thoughts here as usual. 

       

      @DamagingRob haha oh man... You think I'm not having nightmares leaving it at 99% :lol:. Jokes aside, I may give it a shot during the Christmas break but I'm afraid a month of not playing the game may make it more difficult on me. We'll see! 

       

    3. Yuna4353

      Yuna4353

      @PooPooBlast yea it is utter madness, but at least RGG Studio is on the map. And it should be interesting to see this based upon not seeing the anime 

    4. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      @PooPooBlast Haha, well, good luck if you go for it. Can't believe it's only a bronze. That's a giant middle finger from the developers, if I ever saw one. :/

  16. Do any of you guys know how to link a specific status update you made ages ago or any person that made that status update?

     

    I'm asking because the way I did it was very laborious:

     

    I went to a really old notification tied to a status update of mine which directly took me to that status update. I then looked at the date of that status update and noted the status update number in the link section. 

     

    I then looked at the status update I wanted and noted the date for that one so in the link section I kept editing it until I stumbled into the status update I wanted! I found it by using a binary search kind of way :lol: but that's why I'm posting this .. is there a way that's less complex??

    1. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      If you find the status update, you should just be able to click on the date underneath it. That takes you to the direct page of that specific status. Then just copy and paste the link.

    2. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Yea that's it! Thanks Rob :D

       

      Holy crap hahahha

  17. I beat the story today in Wolfenstein II and a couple of takeaways:

     

    - Gameplay and visuals are as good as ever and improved upon new order. It's Ay Okay! 👌

    - story was just bonkers like the new order but they took it up a couple of notches here ( and perhaps went a tiny bit overboard at times). 

    - Speaking of the story, it was a nice little journey. It feels like uncharted (bear with me) in that the journey was really fun but looking back, it doesnt really feel like you accomplished much. 

    - I had a trophy glitch on me :/ (collect one of each collectible). Hopefully it won't glitch on my second playthrough... 

    - Less BJ monologues to go this time around :/. 

    - The maps I got to visit were really cool but I felt that New order had better map variety. 

    - I played on normal difficulty on my first playthrough and I kinda regret it as I barely died during my run. Something like 7-10 times and most of them were me taking it slow, taking in the environment/ ruins and also searching for collectibles. I feel like I should've started on I am death incarnate but I wouldn't mind a second playthrough.

    - Finally, I likely won't go for mein Leben. I'm going to do clean-up then do "I am death incarnate" difficulty and by then I'll have a clearer picture of whether I should try mein Leben or not. But right now in my current state of mind I doubt it. 

     

    And that's all for now :).

      Yuna4353

      @PooPooBlast Yea difficulty trophies don't stack up, what makes it worse is you have to get S ranks on the hardest difficulty (every difficulty except 1) where you die in one hit, but the enemies do not. 

    3. Spaz

      Spaz

      The New Order and The Old Blood I highly recommend. The challenges in The Old Blood aren’t too badZ 

       

      @PooPooBlast 

       

      1) Yeah that’s what I meant, she figured BJ was one of them.

       

      2) I completely understand if the content is sensitive to someone, particularly Germans because this is a part of history that they greatly shun. I appreciate games taking the alternate timeline approach, The Order: 1886 did it, so has this game. 

       

      What I’m saying is the story is a mixed bag, and it gets too political at times, which I tend to see more often with modern AAA games. Going by gameplay, you’re in a power suit that enables you to run and jump but you’re limited to 50 health. You can overcharge like in the previous games, but that is temporary and because of the way the game is, you’re more tempted to go the stealth approach. 

       

      3) Doesn’t mean someone can’t share a negative opinion about it. 

       

      Wolfenstein II was a bit more meh for me. Has nothing to do with Mein Leben. 

       

      4) Fair enough.

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      @Spaz I can only comment based on my normal playthrough but the entire time I was playing with 50 health, I was dual wielding and going gung-ho on everybody. Didn't feel i was hindered that much. By the time you 

      get your new body, you would've already upgraded a bunch of weapons, gotten some benefits from perks, and you get to unlock a contraption one of which lets you permanently overcharge your health and it'll only start to deflate if you take damage.

       

      Overall I really liked this game but I think new order was better. I put 2 before new order but after the old blood imo.

  18. So.. for some reason I had this quote stuck in my head so I decided to make a compilation out of it from the videos I captured over the years. 

     

    Enjoy :P

     

     

    1. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      :( Scooter.. But damn, you have captured some funny stuff over the years. :lol:

    2. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Lol thanks!  I also wanted to do an "accidental win" compilation and "you spin me right around baby" but I found that my accidental wins were good but not worthy of someone's time and as for the spinny videos, I only had like 5-6 so it wasn't worth it. 

    3. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      Lol. I just heard that song the other day. It's played in Prey's Mooncrash DLC trailer, which I bought. 

  19. Was finally able to put some more time in Wolfenstein II and man the gunplay is as good as ever. It's really satisfying and watching gameplay doesn't do it justice. Gunning through hordes of enemies while dual wielding, chopping and blowing off limbs feels soo satisfying all while listening to the badass music and hearing BJ's thoughtful monologues every now and then :lol:

     

    ~ 5 hrs in and I can say, I have no idea why this game reviewed badly... Graphics and framerate are top notch as well. My only criticism is that the game switches tones constantly from serious to "fudge yea let's kill Nazis" / WTF moments in a snap which could feel outta place sometimes. The original did those transitions better imo.

      Oops! Looked at the reviews for Wolfenstein II and they definitely did not review badly at all, you're right. 

       

      Though I meant in my head that more people preferred the new order and old blood which made it seem as if New colossus was bad. 

       

      And as for youngblood, yea... That one tanked hard.. BUTTTT.. I'm stupid and still went ahead and bought it anyway because from gameplay videos, it looked great lol. I got it for $27.50 CAD physical and I can probably sell it for $10 once I'm done with it so $17-20 for that game is not bad at all for me. 

    3. Stan Lee

      Stan Lee

      @PooPooBlast oof but that still wasn't full price for it, at least.

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Oh lol I almost never pay full price for a game just because I always have stuff to play at that time but the only game I ever payed full price was judgment and to me that was worth it. Got almost 90 hours of play time on it. 

       

      And haha I like how you said oof. I mean .. how bad can it be right? 😂 Right? 😅 Right?! 😭

       

      Only time will tell. :P

  20. You know what's fudged up? I wanted to buy the steep season pass because I own the main game from plus and the game looks interesting and fun to play especially that winter is coming up here.

     

    However I always do my research before buying a game and I'm glad I did..

     

    The season pass ($13 I think) DOES NOT include road to Olympics dlc and that dlc isn't even on sale and it's going for $13 or so as well... My face immediately went from this :D

    to this..

     

    588313_sad-troll-face-png.png

     

    Let's just say I will never touch the game... Because yea let's make a season pass where you don't get all the DLCs!

      @DamagingRob it doesn't help also that Ubisoft likes to have multiple editions so you're left wondering and looking up online which edition to choose.... The gold edition, the super deluxe but not quite there edition, the super deluxe edition, the ultimate edition, super duper ultimate deluxe GOTY edition, etc..

       

      And regarding BL3, that's why I waited. I really want to play it but I can always wait for the inevitable "complete edition" so to speak. 

       

      @ihadalifeb4this

      Thanks for the info! I'll look into it but also part of what made steep look appealing is that on-top of snowboarding you have skiing and gliding. 

    3. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      Yeah, I probably would have waited, too. Not just because of the DLC, though. I pretty much never buy games when they're new and expensive. :/ But I won this one, so it will take some of the sting out when I do buy the Season Pass. Hopefully on sale.

    4. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Annoying for sure. I got the Platinum and the 100% earlier this year and yes, the Season Pass does not include the Road to Olympics DLC. So that means you need both the Season Pass and the Road to Olympics to get the 100%. The season pass is usually on sale but the Road to Olympics only every so often. The worst part is that it doesn't really add that much to the game.

       

      I mean, it's okay because you get a couple of new mountains in Japan and Korea but the trophies there can be done in just like an hour or so. The Rocket Wings DLC was far more enjoyable by comparison. 

  21. So .. I decided to abandon enslaved odyssey to the West... (Lol that was quick). It was extremely clunky to control what with the camera having a mind of its own and the combat is very simplistic. I'm also not one who's picky about graphics but it really hasn't aged well and the aliasing is off the roof. The story was interesting from the start but I can't see myself tolerating all of this for the story. I decided to see how the game progressed though by watching videos and reading up on the story and i feel like I would've enjoyed the game had the gameplay not been hard to deal with. 

     

    --------------------------------------------------

     

    In other news I started Wolfenstein II and... Wow!! (Spoilers)

     

    the game is making me shoot a dog?!!! 



     

     

    Looks like I won't finish the game after all and not because of mein Leben :lol: (jk jk but WTF game!!)

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      @Copanele Lol I also bought it for $5 but it was CAD dollars.. 

       

      And well don't take my opinion as the opinion of all opinions! Try it out and see how you like it! Hope you enjoy it! 

  22. Haven't done status updates in weeks and here I am with two status updated in a day :o

     

    Anyway, I decided what to get from the Halloween sale but I'm tentative about dragon's dogma. I've scoured a ton of gameplay videos and while the gameplay looks excellent I'm afraid it may fall flat in the story department and in perhaps not having a lively world with towns, shops, and NPC interactions which I've seen none of.

      Yeah, you can switch classes whenever you like as long as you go to the inn. Just make sure you keep the right equipment before switching. You're proficiency in a specific class goes up the more you use it which means more/better skills.

       

      And yeah, pawns play a big role in this game... Pawn hub though... Lol!

      I'd say go for it, brah.

      I, on the other hand, am slowing down on the games. I'm not in a rush to purchase new titles.

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      @Beyondthegrave07 That's good to know! I personally dislike RPGs that limit you to one class for your entire run. I prefer games where if you train a certain skill, you should be able to use it and benefit from it. I would've loved in Skyrim for instance to switch from archery to mage or one handed, two handed etc if the situation calls for it. Unfortunately they restrict you with perk points and so you can't make good use of the other skills even if you level up in them unless you put some perks in that tree. 

       

      @thepeaguy  I already did!

      Congrats! 👍

       

      An amazing game for sure. My first Platinum on the PS4. I'm even planning to go back to it and do the DLC once I spot it at a good price.

      Also, Excelsior! :P

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Thanks guys :D

       

      @Honor_Hand I believe the season pass has been on sale multiple times but yea it's something like $20 CAD or like $15 US when on sale. I liked the DLC, it was fun. It was just essentially more spiderman. I wish they added new gameplay elements but they didn't. 

  24. As I'm slowly wrapping up Spiderman ps4 I'm thinking about what to play next and I have no idea.. 

     

    1. Play Wolfenstein II: if yes then I'm unsure whether I want to bother with the trophies knowing I likely won't beat perma death mode. Or I can get most of the trophies that I can and move on. But then at the same time it's like why should I bother with collectibles or anything else that's very time consuming and tedious if I won't bother with perma death? 

     

    2. Enslaved odyssey to the west: I've had this game for a while now and I want to try it out. Only thing that worries me is that tech orbs can glitch on me but I'll still play it. I want to experience a good story so I'm hoping this could provide that given I didn't feel like I experienced a solid one since playing judgment... 

     

    3. Amazing spiderman 2 (ps3) : yea it'll be a big downgrade from ps4 spiderman but I have the game so I may as well try it out? I played the first one and it was okay but to hear this one was reviewed worse than the first makes feel like it's going to be really bad because the first wasn't anything special imo. 

     

    4. Fist of the North Star: I'd play this right away if it weren't for the fact I have to wait till February 2020 to resume my Yakuza journey (Yakuza 3-5 remastered physical copy releases) so I'm probably going to leave this till later when I'm really itching to play a "Yakuza" game (it's not really Yakuza but it has similar mechanics :p)

     

    Atm I'm thinking feeling Enslaved > wolf 2> FOTNS > Spidey 2. 

     

    But yea ... Some suggestions/ thoughts would be helpful :). (And I'm not making a poll knowing I likely won't listen to the majority vote as usual :P )

      @PooPooBlast I am scared of like a certain mechanic which I put in the spoiler of an example of some you already past. 

      Spoiler

      I scarced of the stealth sections like the one you had with Mary Jane when you firist meet her. 

       

    3. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      @Yuna4353

       



       

      Oh. Don't worry at all about the stealth sections. They're easy peasy and the checkpoints are very close to one another. 

       

      Also on a final note, the platinum rarity is at 50% which is well above many other games that you've played before so you've nothing to be scared about in terms of difficulty. You played much tougher games. 

       

       

    4. Dr_Mayus

      Dr_Mayus

      I will also say even on the hardest difficulty those sections are not difficult. You get items that make them even easier as you play.
