  1. :platinum: #246 TACOMA - Another one of dem strange games where I'm still no wiser as to what the story was about... to be honest, I bought it on a whim from Limited Run Games and apart from the easy platinum, I can see why it was kinda forgotton about 😅

      Congrats! ^^

       

      The title sounds forgettable even. I think I've seen that title on discount a couple of times and when I check the screenshots on it I'm always like, "Meh...". x3

      @Copanele I like weird shit but this game as @Honor_Hand has described it perfectly is just meh xD 

  2. :platinum: #245 GRAVITY RUSH 2 - I don't think I've played a game anymore boring to be honest. :/ 

  3. :platinum: #244 ICEY - I heard the game was good and didn't know what to expect and literally played the game like a blank book. If it weren't for the narrative then the game is tasteless and as much as I liked it, overall, it felt like a watered down version of the Stanley Parable but the trophy hunting reference was gold. Still, it is worth a play.

    I've been so busy from my job lately that I'm struggling to stay on top of things so I knocked this quite one out whilst working on Gravity Rush 2 which at the moment is a fucking borefest and I've still not platted it xD

      @mako-heart Play Stanley Parable, you'll enjoy that :)

  4. :platinum: #243 Forma.8 - I followed a video guide to get all the trophies but it started off as a frustrating game as far as controls go but it got more enjoyable once I got all the upgrades and stuff. I still have little clue on what the story was about and I paid attention to it unlike these visual novels on my vita. Oh well, it's still a nice fun game :)

      You really caught my interest with this game.  It has been sitting in my download queue as I debated on playing it or not.  Guess I'll give it a try!  Thanks for the thoughts on this one...

      Oh i forgot the quotation marks my bad xD that was brilliant indeed

  6. :platinum: #242 DARKSIDERS II - A very long slog of a game as far as collectables go but I've been determined to push through and make it to the end. The story is good, the controls are fine but the game has an annoying habit of fucking crashing for no reason especially when you get past a really hard part so I've had to alter the settings and turn off some bits and bobs but overall, a fun game :)

      I have yet to play a Darksiders game, even though they look pretty sick with that TLoZ & GoW gameplay combination formula they seem to have.

  7. Before anyone asks, Yes - I saw the Samurai Jack trophy list and I ejaculated with joy 🥰 However, at first I thought the game might be a digital release only (I only collect physical) but I read on a website somewhere that Limited Run Games are handling the physical edition but they haven't announced plans for pre-order yet... so therefore, I'm still happy and it's about time Limited Run put something decent out 🤣

      Just be ready when they announce it if it's not a preorder.

  8. :platinum: #241 PSYCHO PASS MANDATORY HAPPINESS - I lost attention pretty quick  to this one and next minute I was just skipping cutscenes without reading them. I've already opted to watch the DVD series at a later date but all the games I have left on Vita are visual novels and I've just had no motivation to play them or pay any attention to them so I don't know whether to read the ones I might enjoy and skip the rest or take a break away from it altogether and see what happens somewhere in the future :/

      @DamagingRob I haven't bought any of them yet as I don't know where to start because they did a series and a movie as well I believe? @DaivRules Mine had subtitles but I just lost interest pretty quick :(

  9. My question isn't listed in the questions for the PSN interviews thing so I'll ask you here, If you could ejaculate your frustration to any game, what game would it be? xD

    1. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Yeah, the mods told a few questions were omitted from the main interview, but that it'd be fine to answer them via PM or with a status update. I was planning to answer yours in the Director's Cut version of the interview, lol. 😂

       

      As for the question, if I had a rough idea and wanted to "blast out" my frustration out at a specific game. Hmm, that game would need to have a non-restrictive camera and well-endowed ladies to peep. Out of all the games I have, the Senran Kagura series seems to fit all those checkboxes without much effort. x3 It also has many poses, outfits, and accessories to choose to spark things up as well, so that one is definitely the best choice.

       

      A number of 3D fighting games also come to mind, particularly the Dead or Alive series.

       

      Otherwise, I'd rather look for the "special scene" of any eroge or sex game on Pornhub. That always works wonders too. I wholeheartedly recommend it. ;)

    2. ChristIllusion12

      ChristIllusion12

      I think Senran Kagura is okay but the game play is very very repetitive but I do recommend you check out Lollypop Chainsaw as there is a trophy that requires you to be a peeping tom ;)

      I think the game I ejaculated my frustration the most was probably Max Payne 3 for obvious reasons xD 

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      @ChristIllusion12

      Already went and came on Lollipop a long time ago. That's another great option to be a pervert, I reckon. ;) And agreed, SK can be somewhat repetitive at times. 😅

       

      No doubt, I remember the frustration on your status updates a few months ago. 😂

  10. :platinum: #240 DETROIT: BECOME HUMAN - I suppose following a guide would have zapped some fun out of the overall experience but I liked Markus and Connor's path but Kara's was just shit in my opinion. Firstly, having the game set in 2038 seems unrealistic for such advanced life and $7999 for an android seems too cheap especially when you take inflation into account. I did the pacifist playthrough which was the good playthrough but in an ideal world, having a peaceful protest outside of an android concentration camp seems fucking ludicrous and whilst I preferred the good end, I think the androids would have made more of an statement by wrecking the place but the game wasn't bad despite all the terminator references such as Markus rebuilding himself in the junkyard, that reminded me of Terminator when Arnie tries to get Sarah Connor whilst crawling under that hydraulic press and Connor reminds me of that liquid terminator from T2 and if you played the game already and the penny has only just dropped on this relevation for you then you must be a fucking android. 

    Oh and it's been a hectic week due to me nearly losing my job but the outcome of that was... 

    My two team leaders have been sacked and there is no more weekend shift so they offered me a day position 48 hours and I said no due to my college commitments so they have to look into redundancy because they are no longer having a weekend shift but then they found out that I'm doing my level 3 at college meaning that I've already completed my level 2 so they want to offer me an apprentice/apprenticeship role in the fitting and maintenance department so I left saying I'll have a couple of weeks holiday to think it over and see if it'll benefit me and whether I can do my course on day release and I'll get back to them.

    So right now, I'm getting all my information together before I dive in head first and get ripped off with anything because an apprentice wage is absolutely shit and the experience they're saying I can gain from them is more involved with fixing machines rather than buildings and dwellings which is more what I'm after as I want to go domestic... but they are offering to pay for my course which is £3500 so part of me is tempted to say let them pay for it and then fuck them off in June afterwards and go work elsewhere due to the fact that I hate my job and there won't be anything else to keep me there so next week I need to start making calls and seeing if I can work or not work something out :/

      @Honor_Hand I'd say Heavy Rain is the best one, then Farhenheit (Indigo Propehecy), Detroit and then Beyond in that order :) The day position will be 48 hours instead of 36 which is what I was doing before so I might propose to them to keep my money the same (tuesday, wednesday and thursday) and let me do college on monday which they said they will pay for (if I can do that) as I'll need Friday, Saturday and Sunday to do all my homework and then when I finish the course in June, I'll have one year's experience behind me and then I'll just fuck them off and probably get a job in construction somewhere for a year for another years experience whilst getting the qualifications I need and then see where to go from there afterwards... I'll have to look into what I can do and not do and then propose something to them on my terms and see if they'll agree to it afterwards :)

  11. :platinum: #239 TYPOMAN: REVISED - It was okay, the gameplay was fun and the no death run was a little annoying having to close the game down and redownload the save from the cloud but the biggest annoying grind was the mini game, they could have really done without that :/ 

    Sorry if it's a short review, I might have a disciplinary hearing at work tomorrow so can't really focus. It makes me laugh but it's just hassle I can't be bothered with. In a nutshell, 3 other people and I were on a line where a wooden block was put on the safety switch so the line wouldn't stop when you open the safety barriers as opposed to the opposite and someone discovered it, checked the cameras and because we've been inside the safety barriers to do our checks for our paperwork, we're 'breaching' health and safety. My bullshit excuse is to say, yes I did it but, I went as far as reasonably practical to keep it to a minimum for the sole purpose of doing my checks and to stop the product from going upside down (Which is a customer requirement) as well as pointing out that there is no red issued health and safety sign that says DO NOT ENTER AT ALL FOR ANY REASON to remind people of the rules as well as setting out the company's stance in case of 'what if' situations such as this instance as well as having to read and sign a health and safety form to say I'm aware of such change. 

    And don't get me started on the fact that because I work weekends, everywhere in the building is shut so I have no access to tools or PPE or how whenever it's raining, it seems to piss it down more on the inside than the outside due to the shoddy roof that my company are too cheap to replace... what do we think? probability that I'll get a warning, fired or I'll walk scot free? xD

      @Honor_Hand I know what to say in my defense, but it's wording it so I come off more on the defensive rather than the offensive. Here is a quick draft... ;)

      I came in and the block of wood was already on the safety switch so I assumed that someone higher in authority i.e a team leader had put it there and that it was okay to go in. I never questioned it because the team leaders are suppose to be responsible for pushing the standards required by the management and following our meeting on Tuesday, in hindsight, I can see that they've put myself, themselves and potential others in danger. 

       

      Whilst I have admitted that yes, I went inside the cage, I kept it to a minimum for the purpose of my checks and consistent quality of the product I was making on that night. I understand everything you have told me in regards to my checks being that I have to stop the machine, carry out my check and restart it again however, part of my job also involves printing and signing my name on a cleanliness form to say that the profile must be clean at all times meaning that if the line were to stop then the profile would be covered in dirt on the floor, in this instance, how do I maintain the standards of quality without compromising safety? 

       

      Another thing I would like to address is where I have reported issues of health and safety such as filling out frame condition reports detailing possible impalement hazards on the Chapel Park frames, however I'm either ignored or shut down with comments afterwards by various team leaders being along the lines of 'get used to it' or 'it's always been like that'. In this situation where, an established pattern of two (or maybe more) people in a position of authority have illegally overrode a safety switch to run or ignored issues concerning health and safety then I feel I'm guilty of just not wanting to go against the management structure that has been set up where supervisors are consciously breaking the law just to either reduce downtime, cut corners or make the job quicker and easier.

       

      My suggestion for the future to ensure this doesn't happen again, is firstly, an improved method of work meaning documentation on how to do the necessary checks needed without compromising safety. Secondly, a red issued health and safety notice saying 'DO NOT ENTER' which both reminds people of the rules set in place and reinforces the standards of safety that is required by the company. This makes it a reminder for everybody to ensure this type of situation doesn't happen again along with a statement for everybody to read and sign so they are aware of these changes and why they have been put in place.

       

      I can only apologize for what has happened and will make a conscious effort upon myself to be more proactive in future.

      @ChristIllusion12

      That's great. I don't think I could've written such a perfect letter explaining the reasons why that happened. I like the fact that you even added how some of the other team leaders have shut down previously proposed ideas to improve on the health and safety of the employees. Don't mention any names there, but just stating that is good. I'd say this a very defensive argument, plus you added a nice suggestion at the end there to improve things.

       

      Hope everything works out in your favor, man. ✌️

      @Honor_Hand Cheers dude, I've been told to hold onto that for my trump card if it got to disciplinary/appeal stage as saying that tomorrow during the investigation might suggestion I've put a guard up and then they'll want an excuse to get rid of me afterwards so it's been suggested I go in tomorrow, act natural and like an naive idiot where basically I'm too just simply say,

      'My superiors put it there and I've not had any training so I thought it was fine'
      'There is no safety sign to say not to go in there whilst it was running'
      'I've not had any health and safety training on my induction'
      'Maybe we can all benefit from some health and safety training' 

  12. You lied, @BadRep24! You're so ugly you could be a modern art masterpiece!
  13. You lied @funboy1246, I bet you could a golf ball through a garden hose!
  14. :platinum: #237 WATTAM - I knew I was going to enjoy this because I'm a huge Katamari Damacy fan and it was certainly strange to say the least. The only issue is that the controls are a bit wonky and the frame rate gradually gets worse towards nearer the end of the game due to the amount of characters you unlock. One thing worth noting, is that there is no trophy guide on here except for a forum that links you to one elsewhere and in the forum someone said there is no missable trophies and the guide doesn't mention any ground breaking glitches... well, one of the trophies involves turning all the characters into gold and one of them, the snowman disappeared after I finished the game and further research says the snowman is a prone bastard for glitching so I had to spend another 3+ hours doing another playthrough and turning everyone into gold as I went along to make sure, the snowman especially. Still, issues aside, I did like it :) 

  15. I hope mine isn't a WTF question @Honor_Hand
