  1. For some reason I have numerous "newer" games that I have not played until now simply because I want to save them for the Playstation 5.

     

    Call it weird but I feel limited by my first generation Playstation 4 and basically limit myself with this. Games like Resident Evil Village, Shadow of War, Horizon Zero Dawn and Elden Ring are waiting to be played but because my beautiful dinosaur of a console can't handle 4K I am always afraid as if I can't get the most out of my games.

     

    Am I the only one? I'm starting to suffer from a bit of FOMO (fear of missing out) in a way. Not that I don't enjoy my older games that my Playstation 4 can handle with ease and not make it sound like a Boeing 747 wanting to take off. It's cool to see so many new games coming out soon, but I can't get very "hyped" for them since I can't play them anyway, or simply limit myself from not playing them.

     

    It's like wanting to watch a brand new super-modern 3D movie in the theater, but the only theater available to you is the local neighborhood theater where there are cracks in the canvas and the subtitles are barely readable due to the windblown dust from the kids running around playing tag in front of the screen. I'm not saying I won't enjoy that movie, but it's not the maximum you can get out of it.....

     

    What do you guys think? Should I just play these graphically heavy games on my Tyrannosaurus 4, uh I mean, Playstation 4 and let it blow so hard that my neighbor gets a free air conditioner or should I wait until I can get my hands on a Playstation 5? Which, given current prices and inventories, is probably going to take another year or so. Maybe longer for all I know.

      @Infected Elite I appreciate your answer for pushing me in the right direction, but I can't help but miss out in these games when I play them in 1080p while everyone talks about how realistic the hair on the protagonist's mustache looks in 4K wth 60fps while my Playstation struggles to make the game look "believable" at all 😅

      @kevao97 I agree but with how limited the PS5 stock is at the moment I guess it was more of a tactical move to at least make more players be able to, you know, actually play the game instead of having to wait 2 more years until they can get their hands on a next gen console that wasn't being sold for 1000 bucks and a left kidney.

       

      I won RE Village in a contest (the collector's edition nonetheless) for the PS4 and got it on release day but I haven't even installed the game yet. The demo was enough to make my PS4 go absolutely bananas, and not in a good way. Let alone what the main game would do to it......

      @its_ArchroniX just feels like youll be waiting a lot longer for a ps5... but yes they definitely look much better 

       

      i also agree with @kevao97 about not even releasing these on ps4 but honestly im in the boat, pandemic or not, chip shortage or not, there should be a lot less last gen games. So people need to wait to play them on a ps5, so what. I guess sales. but ya. anything past march 2021 should be ps5 only/series x only.

      @Infected Elite Yeah probably. They're popping up now and then in stores in my country but the moment you actually hear that they've popped up they're long gone already.

  2. Started playing Borderlands 2 yesterday and HOLY HELL is it a great game! I did play it very briefly with a friend in 2019 when it was a PS plus game but that friend kinda made the experience 'intolerable' to a degree that gaming wasn't fun for me at all. Now that this 'friend' stopped playing games I'm free and I can finally enjoy playing multiplayer/ online games again!

     

    Started with Salvador yesterday but realized that wasn't my play style at all. I like to be a souped up killing machine but in the beginning you're not really as tanky as I would've liked so I was dying a lot. I started the game again and chose Maya this time and it is so much better! Love her ability!

     

    I'm still salty that I didn't claim the Commander Lillith DLC when it was free but I might end up buying it in the end since I've really missed a shooter looter game like this (been addicted to Destiny 1 and Destiny 2 before the series went to hell but maybe that's just my opinion though) and I'm going to enjoy every minute of this great adventure and would really like to get it to 100%!

      @Raidou Kuzunoha XIV That's the exact thing I experienced as well! My 'friend' was constantly complaining I was going for trophies instead of just playing the game like a 'normal person' but meanwhile my 'friend' skipped all cutscenes, side quests and stole all my loot leaving me with a level 2 pistol while he was running around with a level 15 shotgun ranking up XP. And then complain when he got killed and I wasn't able to jump in and save the day.....

       

      And yes the humour is cringy sometimes. And please don't shoot me for saying this but I can't listen to Tiny Tina for longer than 5 seconds before I want to mute my headset. Such an annoying voice! But the overall combat and the story are great! Definitely going to enjoy the rest of my adventure!

      Sounds eerily like the exact same person, lol.

       

      No worries, I'm not a fan of Tiny Tina either. Only positive is that she has the best DLC with Dragon's Keep.

      TT is my all time favourite character in the game but they changed her way too much for my liking in BL3 and TTW :(.

  3. Going to see them in July in Nijmegen (NL)! Can't wait to hear the new songs live!
  4. Since I have a festival this Friday and then I'm going on a 5 day vacation with my girlfriend, and have 2 more concerts after that vacation (geez I sound busy....) I'm on a pause when it comes to trophy hunting for a moment. But there's so many games I'd like to play after that pause but I can't decide. Any help/ recommendations?

     

    • Borderlands 2 (except for the Commander Lillith DLC, not going to pay 15 bucks for 6 extra trophies and only 7 hours of extra gameplay while I'm not remotely intereseted in Borderlands 3 which is the entire selling point of that DLC)
    • Amnesia Collection
    • For Honor
    • Monster Hunter World (excluding Iceborne for now, going to play that later)
    • The Surge (including all DLC)
    • Knack
    • Some other game that isn't in my list yet (like Megaman Zero/ ZX, Darksiders 1 or Beholder 2)

      @its_ArchroniX That's the reason why I didn't bother going for platinum, not a big fan of time consuming RNG trophies. Although there's a bit of a ease way into it - all previous timed events are available now and some of them have guaranteed gold crowns. Not all monsters, but some of them for sure. And with Iceborne gear you tend to absolutely destroy most of monsters.

    3. its_ArchroniX

      its_ArchroniX

      @Raveniteh Truth to be told RNG is the main reason I'm staying away from A LOT of games. I might like the game a bunch but if the 100%/ platinum is locked behind hundreds of hours having the "chance" of getting that one opportunity (in this case the bigger or smaller monster than the previous one) I'm kind of getting bored. I could easily invest my time in other games (or any other hobby for that matter) and actually feel more productive.

       

      It's like opening a dozen YuGiOh or Pokémon card packs in order to find that one really rare card. Sure you spend all your Christmas money (which in this case is the equivalant of time if we're talking video games) on it but at least you can say that you've got it after the 600th pack you opened feeling nothing but remorse and the urge to rip your entrails out.

       

      And true, Iceborne gear "speeds up" the RNG but is there really such a thing as "speeding up" RNG? Sure it'll take me a shorter amount of time to be able to skin the monster thus completing my quest but if that monster still wasn't bigger or smaller than what's the point at the end of it?

       

      Still might consider playing Monster Hunter for the platinum trophy beacsue I just really like the overall game. But one person can only endure so many tyrannosauruses and fire-breathing dragons a day, right?

      @its_ArchroniX As someone who opened one too many Magic: The Gathering booster packs from my hard earned pocket and part-time jobs I can relate to that comparison.

       

      I would appreciate if there was a way to guarantee gold crowns, like 'pay x material' or something similar, would make it way more feasible. But we're talking about a game which is a definition of 'grind gear so you could grind more gear and in the end, just grind some more'. Which is fun for a while but it doesn't stick with me for a longer period of time as I lose interest and as you said, I'd rather be playing something else and progressing elsewhere. 

  5. I'm going to see them live on Friday (Landgraaf, Pinkpop 2022). I can't f*cking wait! It's been 2.5 long years!
  6. Apex Legends - PS4 Apex Legend Win a game with 8 different Legends ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty (IMO): 6/10 Time: Around 20 hours Rarity: 11.5% Very Rare (PSN) / 15.13% Rare (PSNProfiles) I FINALLY got this trophy and got this game on 100%! I casually played it with a friend and got kinda addicted to it but never bothered to get it on 100%. The last 2 trophies I needed were this one and the one where you need to deal 5000 damage with a certain amount of characters. And since I'm not the best Apex player there is (far from it) I thought I would never get those 2 trophies. My last platinum game was Titanfall 2 and since Titanfall 2 and Apex legends are somewhat similair (it uses the same weapons and somehwat the same lore from my understanding) I thought why not try to knock it out right away? Get this trophy over with! Took me 2 days to get 3 wins (already wins with 2 different legends) and deal enough damage with 3 legends (same). Fun game but I wouldn't recommend these trophies if you're a "new" player to the Batle Royale games. There's A LOT of toxic players that'll spam your mailbox as soon as they think you're not good enough. And the countless times my jumpmaster dropped at the most popular spot and we died in 0.1 seconds........ oh boy.

      Congrats! 

  8. Turns out that Beholder 3 has already been on steam since March 3, 2022 (link to steam page here). The description of the game is as follows: When a high-ranking security officer saves you from prison, you end up a pawn in her schemes. Now you must eliminate anyone standing in the way of her secret plans and try to get your life back while working two jobs. No tenant, employee or superior is safe from your spying. I can't find anything on a Playsyation release anywhere. Any idea if this will be released on console as well? I REALLY liked Beholder 1 and about to play Beholder 2 very soon so I'll definitely buy Beholder 3 if it releases!!
  9. Remember when Destiny 2 released and people paid 60 bucks for it (at release) and then they released a lot of expensive DLC and people paid for that too only to make the game + all of that DLC free to play after a while screwing over the day 1 players big time? Some people (including me) paid over 100 bucks for Destiny 2 + all of its DLC. Imagine doing that and the developers suddenly decide their game is going to be free to play and you aren't getting anything in return. Well this is kind of the same only then the other way around. First they lure people into buying their game and give them a free DLC to get people hyped up for BL3 only to take it away a few months afterwards thus punishing people that want to play/ buy BL2 later and having to pay 15 bucks for one piece of DLC. Is that fair? Not really. They could've just kept it free forever or just ask 15 bucks for it when it released instead. But this weird way of giving it for free and then deciding to ask money for it doesn't really strike as "generous" to me. More like "greedy". I agree that developers don't care about trophy hunting but taking that aside this is a scummy move altogether. Trophies or not, it's not okay to just hand out free stuff and ask money for it a moment afterwards and be like 'Well you're too late claiming it for free, now you gotta pay'. Doesn't make any sense whatsoever in my honest opinion. Especially when it's a DLC that was used a a promotion for the next upcoming game. That game is still out there and you're now charging people 15 bucks to be able to play that 'promotion DLC' for the previous instalment instead of just giving it for free and perhaps boosting your sale for BL3? Okay......

    :platinum: Mark of the Advocate :platinum: 

    Earned all trophies

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

    Enjoyment: 7.5/10

    Difficulty (IMO): 8/10

    Time: Around 10 hours

    Rarity: 1.0% Ultra Rare (PSN) / 8.32% Very Rare (PSNProfiles)

     

     

     

    Let's start by saying that I NEVER but or download shooter games for the story. I have played countless Call of Duty games over the years and rarely played the stories. I never like stories in shooter games. They don't feel the same as stories in an RPG or anything like that and they never appealed to me that much. When I bought a Call of Duty game, I bought it for the Multiplayer or the Zombies game mode.

     

    Still, I wanted to give Titanfall 2 a chance because I really like the whole "mecha combat" idea and I was pleasantly surprised at how good the story in this game actually is! The adventure with BT was a lot of fun, although a bit short. I had no trouble completing the main missions (died a few times) and enjoyed the various trophies for what they were.

     

    The Gauntlet trophy is why I gave this game an 8/10 in difficulty. Oh boy, what a great challenge that was. Maybe my mood was right, maybe it was a good day, but I loved breaking my own time each round and getting better and better to reach the ultimate goal, the top 3! Normally I hate speedrun trophies of any kind, but this was great! I had a few tough moments with grenades not killing all the enemies when I wanted them to, or losing speed at the end of the Gauntlet run. But I managed it and it was great!

     

    Overall a very enjoyable platinum run and a good shooter game. I can't speak about the multiplayer, as I only played it very briefly (about 3 matches or so with a friend 4 years ago). The story is damn good, the combat is fine and if you are up for a challenge the Gauntlet is definitely for you!

  11. I think @AnOrdinaryBloke meant that it was free once and now you have to pay for it which in fact is actually is sort of a cashgrab. Not in the initial sense though. People that want to play and possibly get 100% completion for Borderlands 2 now have to pay 15 euros for that piece of content that other people got for free. Why didn't they just leave it for free?
  12. I know it used to be free for a limited time when Borderlands 3 released but has now been 15 euros ever since. It NEVER goes on sale. I was too late claiming it for free so there's that.... I got the handsome collection for free with PS plus a long time ago and I really want to start and eventually 100% the game but I'm really not sure about buying the DLC or not since I think 15 euros for a single piece of DLC is quite high considering there's some (indie) games that cost less and would take longer to complete. And according to this website the DLC can easily be completed in around 7 hours which is arguably not a very long time. Is the DLC worth the money? And how is the DLC compared to the rest of the DLC's and the base game?

  14. I plan to start playing the Amnesia Collection again soon. I played "The Dark Descent" very briefly and have almost no memory of this game, it has been a while. Now I was wondering if it is possible to play "A Machine for Pigs" first instead of "The Dark Descent"? I have never played "A Machine for Pigs" or even seen gameplay of it so I don't know what it is about or anything like that so maybe this would be better to start with instead of "The Dark Descent" which I have played before. I'm mainly talking about the story here. I'm not quite sure if the two (not counting Justine) games are connected?
  15. While I didn't play Far Cry 5 myself. Only played Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4, Blood Dragon and planning on picking up Primal somewhere in the future. I can speak for a friend of mine (who has played Far Cry 5) when I say this: The Far Cry series died after Far Cry 3. Every Far Cry that has been released from then on has been nothing but a copy paste with a slightly different setting (except for Primal though, that one DID change upon the formula). Far Cry 5 is no exception and basically did nothing different than Far Cry 3 (or Far Cry 4 for that matter).
