  1. I will never buy a PS3 so most of the PS3 only games I was ever interested in coming to some subscription service would actually be an improvement to me, as it would mean easy access to all of them for very little money. However, given that Sonys recent track record suggests that they are basically managed by baboons who must have been created by at least 10 generations of heavy inbreeding, I highly doubt we will see that happen, as it would require basic thought and common sense. The more likely scenario is, sadly, hundreds upon hundreds of games getting lost forever, and others that are not already part of PSNow or members of the minimum effort remaster club will only be available via physical copy, if there is one.
  2. Monster Hunter World Iceborne: 2/10 Some of the most horrible design decisions I have ever seen, the same damage sponge enemies from the base game over and over again, enemy recycling to a ridiculous degree, having to spend hours upon hours researching online because the game prides itself with not telling the player anything, oneshotting raidboss enemies sitting on the best equipment, beyond grindy, very long and constant loading screens, messed up progression system, atrocious platinum list, rng to the maximum, mostly crappy characters. If it wasn't for worse games like "Strafe" being on my list I would give it a 1/10 just for the trophy list alone. This game will place on rank 2 for longest and most mind numbing grinds I have ever done right behind Orcs Must Die Unchained. Whenever I have something resembling fun in this game I see some shit that gets the mood right back down. Time to bash my head into the wall some more until I finally get the Raging Brachydios killed, because any sane individual gives up on Fatalis right away.
  3. MHW: Iceborne. This game seems to be hazardous for my PS4. My console is noticeably louder while playing it, it needs several minutes of loading to do basic things like answering a message after pressing the ps button on the controller (if it reacts to it at all) and this is the first game ever that, while still being in the game, actually stops my PS4 from turning off after I pressed the OFF button on the console. Honestly its concerning, any damage to my sanity was expected from this game, but not to my base PS4. Did anyone else have similar experiences?

      Well it is a problem unique to Iceborn, no other game caused anything of the sort so far, aside from Kingdom Come Deliverance making my PS4 sound like an airplane at times. I highly doubt the hardware is at fault, because then such problems would occur with other games as well.

  4. My least achieved trophies are from the horrible pixel platform game Necrosphere, with three trophies, named "Almost Flawless Execution"( Finish the game dying less than 100 times), "IDDQD"(Finish the game without dying) and "Zoasts 'n Goats"( Finish the game with all DVDs in less than 35 minutes) all only having 3 achievers each, and for good reason too.
  5. I played through this game several times in order to get 100%, and this is most common but also least fitting description I have seen about the games combat so far. The games combat was one of my biggest problems aside from all the day 1 bugs that are still there and the horrendous performance on base ps4, I have already described my problems with the combat in great detail before, but here is a shorter version of it that denies the claim of it getting better. Your character starts out as a loser, so the combat being bad is not that much of a problem at first, it fits the story and world, you are not supposed to be good at it after all so you let it pass, hoping to get better with more practice and an increase in stats. That is pretty much what happens, but the balance of this combat is so bad that you jump from one extreme to another, so most enemies are either way above you or way below you, and both scenarios are not fun to be in, fights either take forever or end almost instantly. Here is roughly whats wrong with the combat and why it sucks by design. Even the more balanced fights suck because of the war stat leading to an over reliance on blocking, dodging, countering and therefore generally dragging the few even fights that do not have you die or win in a few hits to ridiculous lengths that make you question whether you are actually making progress in that battle or not, as there is not much visual feedback on that. Its slow and tedious, does not feel rewarding, and it is badly balancing the different approaches as it heavily encourages turtling while punishing aggression against opponents with a high war stat, as they can abuse master strikes to counter and dmg you whenever you attack, which means you can actually die by attacking too often against skilled opponents. This means you are 100% unbeatable in single combat as long as you just stand there and press the counter button until you got off enough master strikes, which happens almost every time with a high war stat, something that is easy to grind. Combos don't work either due to the war stat, because it is nearly impossible to get the required 3-4 clean hits into an enemy that blocks/evades/counters the vast majority of attacks, and the weaker enemies die long before you get the combo off. The single worst part though is this combat systems limitations when it comes to fights against several opponents, which would be a natural progression to reach more challenging situations in better games. Here, once you are surrounded your character just gets beaten up, leading to your camera swinging around wildly, disorientating the hell out of you and letting you play dummy for every opponent aside from the one you are fighting directly, no way to directly deal with several enemies naturally, as you can only effectively attack or block the one you have locked on. Be prepared to repair your entire armor after such an encounter, as even the weakest weapons will mess up your equips durability. How badly it works with several fighters as a whole is demonstrated whenever a story battle involving several people takes place, they all look horrible and barely work, ruining the immersion instantly. Honestly I can't fathom how people could ever make the claim that this combat is good, or even decent. The only good thing I can say about it is that learning the perfect block timing in the practice arena with Bernard feels somewhat rewarding once you have gotten the hang of it, but thats about it, it does not translate into a good experience. I doubt anyone who actually dislikes the combat enough to quit the game will ever end up deeming it decent, let alone good, but thats just my take on it. I highly recommend you to watch someone play the games best possible fights, the arena fights from one of the dlc, preferably someone you know. These fights were meant to be as good as the games combat system ever allows them to be, ideal conditions. Two people on my friendslist I showed gameplay of those were horrified and chose not to buy it after seeing the best this game had to offer in terms of fighting.
  6. This one came to mind right away. Strafe This game is a horrendously bad indie game, borderline non functional in terms of performance and other issues it has, and a tough trophy list to boot. Depicted here is the most bog standard ugly grunt enemy, but with a crown and a scepter, which are well deserved for putting up with the game long enough to platinum it. Not even the weirdest trophy icon from this games trophy list.
  7. Probably much quicker if you focus on the main missions and keep looking for Vendettas to pop up. Read that one appears quicker if you have friends playing the game, not sure it is true though, it appeared rather quick for me.
  8. A few hours tops. You do a few story missions and the vendetta missions will pop up all over the place, then just kill the orc and you have it. If you want to get the dlc trophies as well to be on the safe side, they require a lot more time.
  9. They had my interest. I did not want to buy it day 1 thanks to my already big backlog and my current lack of time to play properly, even though I trusted CDPR like no other company, but I likely would have gotten it in january or february. Original plan was to get it for PC because I suspected censorship in the PS4 version, though I could have gotten for the PS4 and later the PS5 version too if there was no idiotic censorship. Now, with this being the biggest mess since Fallout 76, and in some ways it being worse than that, any desire to pay for this game has vanished given the developers multiple fuck ups and it has fallen down my priority list. If it is a good game, maybe I get it used for a few euros in 2 or 3 years, or play it if it ever is free on psplus, but thats it. If anyone has the game I recommend going for the refund and getting the money back. There is no guarantee this will ever turn into a good game on the old consoles, and if it does you can just rebuy it cheaper if that day ever comes, can't go higher than full pre order price, also it sends a message.
  10. Missable would mean that you'd have to start an entire new campaign to finish it. Aside from the fact that you can just reload any of your likely high number of campaign saves and auto saves to do it, you can also do it in challenge mode at any time, so I would not classify it as missable since that term is usually used to warn people about a (high) potential loss of time due to the need to replay something from scratch just for the sake of just one trophy.
  11. Isn't it tragic that all the hype games this year turn out to be trash for one reason or another? This game here was supposed to be the holy grail of 2020, and look how it turned out, can't get hyped for anything these days.
  12. Einen wunderbaren Montag morgen Herr Nachbar!

    Hoffe du hattest en geruhsames und schönes Wochenende trotz des ganzen Chaos auf der Welt!

  13. Between this and the claims that some of the new XBox consoles are having heat related issues to the point of the console getting damaged by it, the new generations indeed seems to be off to a promising start
  14. I actually have not fully decided yet. For me to buy a PS5 there are some things that must have happened by the time I decide to spend that kind of money for it. 1. There must be a PS5 Pro. I will not buy a base version of a Playstation console anymore after this generation, as this leads to quite a few problems with performance, especially with games from lazy devs and demanding games on the end of the console generation that try to get the most out of the pro versions. If it becomes clear that there will be no pro version in a few years, then I might as well skip it entirely by that point, thousands of games to choose from on PS4 after all. 2. There need to be plenty of games to actually make getting such an expensive new console, and a new TV, worthwhile. I will not invest that kind of money to then play old games, as I can do that on my Ps4 just fine if I want trophies, or on my still perfectly working PS1-PS2 consoles if I just want to play the games. Currently, the PS5 line up is rather weak, but theres still a few years to build that up. 3. Sony needs to stop shitting the bed. Recently I have seen way too many things about Sony that pissed me off, even if I was not affected myself most of the time, it definitely adds up. This goes for the gaming industry in general, if that keeps getting worse then my days of paying for gaming are over alltogether, as I have the knowledge to sail the seas and get my hands on most games on PC for free. 4. Anti consumer behavior with the PS4. If they threaten to do to the PS4 what they did with the PS3, and I have not yet bought a PS5 at that point, I will probably just cut my losses with this company out of spite and go back to PC for good. What they have going for them is still having the option to go physical. The last few months have turned me off a lot from digital only, and I can't see myself ever buying a digital only console, especially not from Sony. I had the policy of only buying physical for great games I really wanted on my shelf, though I will buy more physical games in future, even at considerably higher prices.
  15. If you don't like Outlast you likely won't enjoy Amnesia either, as Outlast took a lot from Amnesia. The basic concepts are the same, no combat, running and hiding, the main difference is that in Amnesia, a lot less action is happening, less gore is shown, so most of the time you will be walking through desolate areas trying to puzzle things together.
