  1. It’s a switch exclusive as much as my dick is 24 inches long. it’ll come to PC and probably PS5 (maybe even still PS4) eventually. NIS always pulls this crap. I think that’s one of the reasons they have financial problems. The first version of Disgaea is always made worse by some enchnaced version released later that includes all dlc and new content. Japanese devs need to stop with this crap. Idea Factory did it all the time too With “Vita exclusives” that came to PC 6 months later. i get if you’re small enough that you don’t have the capacity to support multiple skus at once, but stop selling things as fake “exclusives”. But NISA got Ys because they could port to multiple skus for Falcom, so I don’t see why they can’t do their own games. and if the game is really already coming to PS4 in Japan, lol. Nintendo of America is touting the “exclusivity”. I’m just growing very tired of all these fake exclusives.
  2. Got a PS5 preordered at amazon ca. Not my ideal choice, rather do it in a store, but at least I’ll get one.

      At least you got it.

  3. Awful decision to pretend they're PS5 exclusives. Makes them look bad.
  4. Well it was a marketing beta so you should. Nothing about the game changed. Where’d I say you can’t enjoy it? I said it’s trash, which it is. Doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. Bulletwitch is a shit game, but I love it unironically. I’m not going to pretend it’s amazing just because I enjoy it. When you say casual fans all I think of is people with no standards who buy things based entirely off brand recognition alone. It’s not based off “my mind”. It’s based on the capabilities of Crystal Dynamics and comparatively how Spider-Man turned out as a similar “AAA” project. if this were just some tie in to a movie, it’d make sense being how it is. But it’s not. It was supposed to be a AAA game and it’s shit. Clunky combat, slow movement, awful writing and terrible Main character, performance issues, riddled with ways to milk you for more money, superfluous loot, sponge enemies, brain dead AI, I could go on but you love this trash so enjoy.
  5. yeah, it’s not like there was a FREE open public beta to play the crap game. Anyone that bought it after that is somebody already biased in favour of it given how mediocre it plays. Not to mention the trash mission structure and horrible writing that contradicts itself within seconds. You’d have to already be jerking it off in your mind to go, “that’s worth $60 and ignoring the games as a service and per character season passes”.
  6. Well you shouldn't have. They made FFXV after all, which they never even finished. And that was going to charge you the entire time. This is funny to me. Destiny was the last time I invest in any Service Game. Yet people bought 2 and were shocked at how shit it was and how little content it had, even though it was literally the same shit with the first game. I'll play a free service game, if it's at least fun but I ain't spending money on that shit. Some people will just never learn it seems. Beta wasn't even fun so idk why people would even buy it.
  7. Given most "Betas" are just bullshit demos that are so close to release that there's no dramatic differences that could be made in that time beyond server stability, it's perfectly reasonable to judge a game off it's promotional demo disguised as a beta. The first guy to talk positively of the game couldn't help himself from pointing out a flaw that was present in the beta already and thus is still there. A flaw that I saw multiple people complain about in the "beta". Yet it's not addressed. Shocker. Stunning. A feather could knock me over, I'm feeling so faint at this unexpected turn of events. Imagine Russian Roulette in reverse. Instead of one bullet, you have just one missing. Would you say the gun is safe to point at your temple because the small chance you won't die? I wouldn't. Exceptions prove the rule. Most "betas" are marketing tools and not actually to listen to feedback. There's a lot to infer that this game is a cash grab as it is. The way in which the beta itself was handled should be a tip off to you, but apparently not. Which is why it keeps happening, I suppose.
  8. Square Enix, who takes months to fix audio issues in games like one of the FF games on PS4, forget which. I think either X/X-2 or XII. Yeah, you'll be waiting months for this too. They clearly didn't do any playtesting if the game doesn't function properly like any modern online game. And I can't see them drastically altering how the online works through a patch, I think if they were going to improve that they would have done that when building the online. This isn't an early access release, it's supposedly a final product. I don't care what somebody tries to rationalize it as, the way it works is absurd and doesn't have a place in current year game design. Especially from somebody who isn't just 2 dudes in a basement making their first game and for some reason decided to have online in it. At least that would make some sense for it not working how you'd expect. Though maybe that's who did the remaster since SE clearly didn't care about it. If you can't make concessions for quality of life gameplay features, then I don't even know why you play video games at all. You'll never have a game free of various concessions made in order to build a game around it. Uncharted, it doesn't make sense you slaughter thousands and have zero comment on it and it impacts the story not at all. But you make that concession because the game has to have compelling gameplay inbetween the cutscenes and set pieces, and it works as a full package in spite of that. Even action adventure films like Indiana Jones did this stuff. You have to suspend some level of disbelief, and for games that means overlooking silly things like an RPG's urgency 99% of the time meaning nothing. "Oh no, we must stop Evil McEvil from blowing up the Wizard Academy, urgently! The bomb will explode in 30 minutes!" *spends 400 hours playing a card game before getting back to the story* Gameplay comes first, story concessions always have to be made in order to build gameplay around them. Especially online experiences, Halo comes to mind. Why are there more Spartans in co-op campaigns? Because it's a game first and foremost. There's no reason for this limitation other than SE not feeling like putting effort into this release. It's a shame, Crystal Chronicles was a unique game that they never got right after the first release. People have been waiting for years for a proper CC game with online co-op again and it looks like we will still have to keep waiting because even them just remastering the original couldn't get us what we want. So a new game that is actually good like the original (haven't played the Wii game) and with online coop that doesn't work like crap is definitely never happening.
  9. They are once you figure out how to spam it. It’s been ages, but I remember that I just ran around spamming a move and never engaged much directly. I was always moving and very high up on the levels. Sorry I can’t be more specific, haven’t played in years.
  10. Played it on Steam and man I'm glad it was in a Humble Bundle and I didn't get it on sale, would've felt ripped off. It's terrible. One of the worst TPS I've ever played, it feels like you're shooting air at enemies. The sound design leaves much to be desired and the impact of your shots is not noticeable besides looking at the ugly health bar of enemies on the screen slowly fall. And even on easy you can be shredded by the bad encounter designs because it'll just spawn like 8 drones instantly in front of you because why not. On PC it had horrible optimization and framerate and tons of glitches and you get stuck on everything around you. What a trash game.
  11. Dick riding is fun, try it and maybe the stick up your bum would find its way out. I could respond to a few of these points (the ones I bothered to read up to at least)l but why bother. You just want to shit on people who like the game, not talk about it. edit: always find it fun when “honest” just translates to “an opinion I agree with”.
  12. Oh cool, thanks. Will pass on PS4 version of the dlc then. Glad I don't have to play a third time, don't mind playing a second time but three so close together is pushing it.
  13. The free game has like 3 or 4 levels. Part of the $5 goes to charity too. I played it on Steam and happily paid for the DLC. $10 [more around $12/13 CAD] for the entire package is worth it to me. The nerve of developers not giving entire games for free and dlc for free for nothing in return. That's a great business model! And I'll pick it all up again on PS4, though maybe not the Dino one as there's no trophies currently. They did add some to PC though, so maybe they'll add them to PS4 eventually as well. Had to replay the level to get the achievements despite doing the dlc without them. Don't want to have to do that again unless there's trophies for sure. Look forward to more crying about it if they do.
  14. I mean they had tons of server problems so people couldn't play, and their online sucks so you get latency issues where you can "win" on your screen but actually you lost because you were behind. Really common on the tail minigames. So saying it "works", I guess, but it's hardly without it's own problems. But it is more understandable given the scope of each match and how many players and them being indie vs Square Enix who should know what they're doing but half the time seem like they let the janitor have a crack at programming.
  15. Wait, how could they fuck it up that badly in current year. lol... oh my god. They really don't want people to have a good time with this game in multiplayer it seems.
  16. lol, “have fun exactly like me! You don’t? you make me sick”. @ topic lol... people are so annoying, grow up. Nothing is different. Go to ps trophies on some old games plat difficulty ratings threads and people are crying about all sorts of fucking games and trophies being too hard and bullshit. People acting like Deadpool is the most difficult game ever made. I notice since I’m slow af getting some plats and am always curious what people say. it just rustles your jimmies now so you’ve began to notice and love to whine about people having different reasons and ways of having fun. Quite honestly the game is probably the most overrated one in recent years. So many inherent design problems and lack of variety but it’s FuN so ignore all the problems like eaten inputs, crap online that makes it virtually unplayable in some game modes, terrible modes like that awful egg one reliant on a shitty grab that controls like ass. Sure, the game has its fun moments, but to act like somebody is missing out by passing because trophies... nah. Not really. How many times is this stupid ass subject matter going to come up? Mind your own damn business. I got the Plants vs Zombies Vita plat before they made it piss easy (changing 3 diamonds in slots to any match of 3). I don’t care. The original trophy was poop and annoying. I got Marvel Heroes Omega plat before they ended it and had given out free boost items to make it easy. Who cares. That grind was poop too.
  17. I deleted it yesterday resigning to not get 100%, well... whatever % it would be without that top 50. I would never do that. But that 5k one was enough to make me not even care about the rest. I just needed online ones besides that, and don't feel like bothering with that either. Oh well.
  18. I don't care if you don't agree. No one series should get ownership of an entire genre to the point that all games in it are called ripoffs, that's how you get mediocrity like Sw/Sh from a franchise that's worth nearly 100 billion dollars. That game is what you'd expect a chinese knockoff of Pokemon to be, but it's an official product by the one and only GameFreak. And they get away with that because idiots cannot fathom that there can be more than one series in the universe about collecting creatures. A concept not originated by Pokemon in the first place. So every other game has to go up and over the hill of "omg pokemon ripoff reee" fanboys and stupid people who can't describe a monster collecting game any other way than "Pokemon".
  19. It's an entire subgenre of RPG. Calling every fucking game in it a ripoff of Pokemon is stupid and tiresome. Particularly when Pokemon isn't even 2D anymore.
  20. It's always annoying when people bring up Pokemon as if it has ownership of the monster collecting genre when it didn't even do it first. Seems somewhat similar to the original Nexomon and the Steam Achievements for it. Just with more mechanics and actually designed for console/controller now and not just a mobile port. Took me 40 hours to get all the achievements in the original.
  21. Anybody get "site blocked" from their antivirus when viewing certain threads? I get it viewing the most recent platinum thread.


    Some [dot] io thing.

      Some peoples signatures were using insecure (not using https) links a while back that was causing either a similar or the same problem for someone.

      Figured it was something like that, thanks.

  22. Hope to Yevon PS5 has a search for the library... and that is translated to the webstore, had to go through 100+ pages to find One Piece Pirate Warriors 1 & 2. I was starting to question if a) I actually even had them, I remembered them on my PS3 but must have deleted them b ) if they even released digitally.

    But yes. And yes. What a pain in the ass, and you can't even manipulate the page numbers because it's not loading a new page every time... I knew it wouldn't be in 2020 or 2019 and likely not even 2018. After that I had no clue. I think it was 2016 that I finally found them.

  23. Yevon, people are miserable... Anyway, I just wonder if it's something we have to install the full single player to play or not. If there's trophies I don't care, I'm just curious about it. I like co-op games and loved the main game. I'll earn what I can/want and move on when I no longer have fun with it. Like Uncharted 4's co-op. That shit was hard for seemingly no reason so I wasn't going to bother. Or Killzone Shadow Fall's co-op, don't remember if that was hard but I know I never finished it. Just want to have fun in co-op. Assuming the different classes are fun to play.
  24. eh... they could have that data, just depends on how they made the game. A lot of developers are able to track things players do in the game. They could know where everybody falls off levels, what obstacles hit people the most, etc depending on how they built the game. It's indie, so I don't know that they would have that type of information being recorded though. But it sure would be interesting. And that's way more complex than just checking trophy/achievement data which is directly tracked by each platform by design. They wouldn't come here to get that info
  25. eyyy, I got that on my hidden games list. lol
