  1. Time continues to fly and I don't notice. I think I've bitten off more than I can chew with Ghost, so many collectibles lol It's not bad but it's starting to drag a little. The environments are stunning though, you can see how much love went into it. Unfortunately my enjoyment is being stifled by the fact they decided not to have a proper lock-on. Multiple times I have died, or a hostage has died because he refuses to turn around, parry the correct attack, or focus on the guy right behind him instead choosing to focus on the guy that's running over the hill. Since the event ends at the end of May, I might prioritize the shorter games so my list doesn't look like such a complete failure lol Overcooked - 100% Ghost of Tsushima - 17% > 22% Murdered: Soul Suspect - 0% Cat Quest II - 0% Darkwood - 2% Aven Colony - 0% Monkey King Is Back - 0% Nexomon: Extinction - 47% Seasons After Fall - 0% Road to Guang Dong - 0% Dear Esther - 100% The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - 100% Those Who Remain - 58% ⭐ Spyro Reignited Trilogy > 100%
  2. Wow, time sure does fly. I'm mostly recovered from the medical crap that was keeping me down earlier in the event so I should be back to the games again now. I started Ghost of Tsushima and wow, I can see why it was so acclaimed despite media trying to divert attention to TLoU2. It's a very good game, and I quite like that combat is quick and fluid. I like that I can only take a few hits before dying, but the enemy also only takes 2-3 hits before dying. I've finished Act I and am slowly going through and picking up all the collectibles I missed in the first part of the map before moving onward. In other news, in an attempt to move away from Sony I began selling off all my PS4 games and rebuying the games I still want to play on Steam or GoG. Unfortunately I can't find a Steam alternative to this site so I guess you're all stuck with me. I managed to finish off the Spyro Reignited Trilogy again, unrelated to this event. I have to say the trophy system is superior in the ping noise over Steam's silent achievements. Overcooked - 100% Ghost of Tsushima - 0% > 17% Murdered: Soul Suspect - 0% Cat Quest II - 0% Darkwood - 2% Aven Colony - 0% Monkey King Is Back - 0% Nexomon: Extinction - 47% Seasons After Fall - 0% Road to Guang Dong - 0% Dear Esther - 100% The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - 100% Those Who Remain - 58% ⭐ Spyro Reignited Trilogy > 100%
  3. I kind of agree, and I get the logic behind it. And I definitely agree that supporting the things you DO want is as important as not supporting the things you don't. The downside is that gaming is so large and mainstream now that voting with your wallet barely makes a dent. Me not buying the latest Pokemon game because I didn't like that they'd cut out half the Pokemon to then later add as DLC ultimately doesn't matter because they're still the third best selling Pokemon game ever. And they're going to be charging $70 for games that are still buggy, broken, and riddled with microtransactions. So I can quite easily say that the majority of games aren't worth buying on release for that alone.
  4. Well I'm still alive but my health has been awful the past few weeks so here's a late update of not much happening. What game playing I've done has been a mix of FFVIIR (which I don't like so I'll finish the story and call it quits), and Those Who Remain (which I also don't like). Those Who Remain is pretty short but it's filled with constant frame drops and a really fiddly control scheme. To open a door you need to click precisely on the handle, and then doors always open toward you, sometimes they clip through you, sometimes they push you. It's really annoying. Also a spotlight monster thing that stalks around some areas for really no reason other than to be a pain. Maybe I'll slog through and finish it, maybe I'll do it bit by bit over the next month or so. I actually want to play something fun now. Overcooked - 100% Ghost of Tsushima - 0% Murdered: Soul Suspect - 0% Cat Quest II - 0% Darkwood - 2% Aven Colony - 0% Monkey King Is Back - 0% Nexomon: Extinction - 47% Seasons After Fall - 0% Road to Guang Dong - 0% Dear Esther - 100% The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - 100% Those Who Remain - 0% > 58%
  5. Not when it's literally in the ToS that you agree to. I think there's only been one case of a lawsuit even similar going anywhere when a Russian guy tried to sue Steam for banning him and locking him out of his library. And that is only going so far because Valve never stated what would lead to loss of account access. They can literally just turn the tap off and be like 'nope'. Without notice. Again, you legally agree to these Terms of Service. It's shitty, but that's why people have been saying to say physical. Although with the rumoured battery issue in the PS4 it looks like even that might not be a workaround anymore. Certainly that's more grounds for a lawsuit than closing obsolete servers. But Sony are a company, if something is not making money enough to stay viable they will shutter it. Who is actively using the PS3 servers now? Certainly not the Fifa/Cod/GTA bros all on the PS5. A handful of people on an obscure trophy site aren't enough reason to keep servers open. And let's say it is illegal. What is anyone going to do about it? Do you have the money to sue them? Does anyone? No. Sony have the cash not only for the best lawyers but also enough cash that they can tie it up in the courts long enough to bankrupt you before they lose. They know it too. This is also why Google/Alphabet never gets sued over all their shady shit.
  6. No, it's called a rhetorical question. To clarify for you, I could've said 'So then people shouldn't be upset over it.'.
  7. So why are people getting upset over it? Plenty of people in this thread seem to believe it. Believing that they could file a lawsuit and win, or it must be illegal, or just being generally upset about something everyone should've known will happen shortly as Sony are clearly closing down features of old consoles.
  8. While that may be the case for the moment, do people really believe that they're going to keep the PS3/Vita/PSP storefronts open indefinitely? Even if it's not happening now, it will happen later. When it's no longer cost effective to continue hosting those games/servers, they will shut down. Obsolete tech doesn't get support anymore. This is what you legally agree to when you open an account and purchase from their store. They can remove your access to these services at any point and for any reason. Plus let's face it, if you haven't bought what you want from the PS3 store by now, you're probably never going to. I'm not arguing in favour of Sony and I think it's pretty gross. But this is what people kept trying to tell everyone when the push for the 'digital future' started and were called conspiracy theorists. You own none of these games and your access can be terminated at any time. "You will own nothing and you will be happy."
  9. I only play Overcooked solo as most of the time it's easier. The scores required for 3* scale to how many people are playing, and in most levels you can sail past the 3* quite comfortably. I think there was only 2 levels in the last zone that gave me a bit of trouble and I barely scraped it after a couple of tries. It's definitely more fun with other people, but not if you want trophies lol
  10. Finished the second game on the list, another easy one but it's certainly a step above Dear Esther. It actually has a story, or enough of one to stay interested. And you can sprint. You can sprint in the walking simulator which makes all the difference. And it doesn't suffer for it. This is how walking simulators should be done and every future one I play will be held to the Ethan Carter standard. Didn't appreciate that there was a jumpscare section, although I never encountered the scare myself. I don't know if they removed it or I just got lucky, but just knowing that it *could* happen had me on edge. And here's the third finish. It's fun, one or two levels are pretty difficult but they're doable after a couple of tries. The second game is a massive improvement over this one though. More characters, more varied levels and the ability to throw stuff. The only reason to play the first game is because you really like Overcooked. Which I do. Overcooked - 100% Ghost of Tsushima - 0% Murdered: Soul Suspect - 0% Cat Quest II - 0% Darkwood - 2% Aven Colony - 0% Monkey King Is Back - 0% Nexomon: Extinction - 47% Seasons After Fall - 0% Road to Guang Dong - 0% Dear Esther - 100% The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - 100% Those Who Remain - 0%
  11. Can't say I had issues but boy, you're going to have fun if you play the third game.
  12. You know you have a problem when you check a sale and all these games that look interesting already have the [Purchased] tag but you don't remember buying any of them

    1. enaysoft

      enaysoft

      That has happened to me many times. lol

      Eagerly about to purchase, to only be greeted by the "Download" button instead of "Purchase"

       

      I also once, was gutted that a game I wanted on Vita was delisted and could not longer be purchased.

      Then a few months later realised said game was given away some years ago for free on PS+.

      In other words I already had the game and just didn't realise it, I just click and cancel every free game on PS+ and usually I don't even remember the name.

       

      I think I have about 100 games now I bought on sale and have yet to start playing.

    2. snakebit10

      snakebit10

      Has happened to me with sales. Now I do remember buying them, just don't always remember when. Like earlier this year I played Dead Island definitive edition. I had to go back and look when I bought it. Just 4 years ago.

      charxsetsuna

      I've had this problem with big in Japan sales before 😂 

      Which is probably good for my psn wallet.

       

      And i definitely have games i own that I've forgotten about.😂

  13. Finished the first game on my list. Yeah I know it's an easy one but I've been installing/deleting/reinstalling it for ages thinking it's going to take me hours to do. It didn't, thankfully as it's one of the most boring experiences I've had in gaming. As @MMDE said in his 2017 thread, this really marks the beginning of the asset flip type of games. Cheap, lazy, and barely coherent. The developer commentary showed that they really had no idea what they were going for and just kind of cobbled some ideas together, trying to convince each other that it's deep and meaningful. Crawling out of a wet cave being a symbol of birth is not new, clever or profound. The music is also repetitive and grating. "It's supposed to be like that" the developer says. "Fuck off" I say, they should've left the music out and just kept the ambient noises. Let's hope Ethan Carter is better. Overcooked - 0% Ghost of Tsushima - 0% Murdered: Soul Suspect - 0% Cat Quest II - 0% Darkwood - 2% Aven Colony - 0% Monkey King Is Back - 0% Nexomon: Extinction - 42% Seasons After Fall - 0% Road to Guang Dong - 0% Dear Esther - 100% The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - 0% Those Who Remain - 0% Also Nexomon went from 20something to 42%.
  14. Adding to my list: Dear Esther - 0% The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - 0% Those Who Remain - 0%
  15. Ohh me too! Overcooked - 0% Ghost of Tsushima - 0% Murdered: Soul Suspect - 0% Cat Quest II - 0% Darkwood - 2% Aven Colony - 0% Monkey King Is Back - 0% Nexomon: Extinction - 22% Seasons After Fall - 0% Road to Guang Dong - 0% Dear Esther - 0% The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - 0% Those Who Remain - 0%
