  1. Hey dude, I'm a mini mod and I'm gonna call the real mods to have your profile terminated because I just feel it's my obligation to the community to do that!

      Many have tried. None have succeeded. 

  2. What does this have to do with Armored Core 6?
  3. Unrelated, but it's kind of bullshit that backing up your saves is behind a paywall. If you're only going to offer cloud-based saves, fine -- but at least make it free. PS3 games were so inconsistent whether or not you were permitted to make back-ups to a USB, or if you needed to use the Cloud. PS4 has it right; you had unlimited access to backing-up to the USB and that was the "free" option. No saves were protected in that manner like they were on PS3. Now all PS5 software have their saves only accessible on the cloud. At that point, the feature need of backing up your save should be free.
  4. Been planning out a trip back to Japan. 

     

    Keeping an eye out for property as well as re-connecting with my friends who are natives there that I truly miss seeing since the pandemic. Been far too long since I've been in 大阪. I miss it dearly.

    Of course, I'll be stopping by PlatinumGames once again. Likely will be visiting their new studio in Tokyo.

      hahaha old men like you shouldn't be flying on planes, guy 😂🙃😉

       

      In all seriousness tho, I hope you are able to make it back there, perhaps permanently even. If that's what your heart desires of course!

  5. @Flubberwunked may be able to help.
  6. Shitty that I can't cancel my Limited Run Games copy. They were the first to offer a physical copy and there's still no ETA on shipment and instead just "In Production". This will do, though. Cooler cover as well.
  7. Come on, man -- you KNOW I like that.
  8. When I was doing the Google certification course for Project Management, they had someone from the Stadia division talking about risk identification and I couldn't stop laughing.
  9. Didn't take long for people to try and "justify" playing this shit. The only justification you need, first of all, is that you want to - however; if you have time for trophy software, then you have time for regular games as well. Motivations are irrelevant; and I even reflected on what is happening to the marketplace and how these games impact other titles.
  10. No. The games continuously molest the store front and harm the visibility of actual indie/small developers. Sol Cresta got overshadowed by stupid shit like these games because: It didn't cost a few pennies The platinum trophy is actually indicative of effort The store front was too busy showing the latest drop of dumb shit/and premium front-facing real estate from Sony and Sony's partners The conversation should continue until this matter is closed. Ignore the thread if you want - utilize your agency.
  11. I like how we're just trading profile views today.

      I'll leave a stain here too, if you don't mind. Well I guess too late, already typed it. lol

      I think it might be a good idea to turn my PSNP Profile into an NFT and then you buy it and I buy yours and then we've officially traded something that is viewable by the public by financially investing in it. 

  12. Shit, they made you into a moderator?
  13. Having an incredible time with Ninja Gaiden Σ2 on the PS5. 

     

    Purists have their feelings justified with the omission of co-op; but that was never the highlight for me. Even if I got good enough at practicing its nuances thanks to people like @Sergen, I've always enjoyed the single-player elements of the game more than the co-op.

     

    The original is good, too -- but I'm more familiar with Σ2 and I think I am also more fond of it. It's unfortunate that Team NINJA even just announced that a new Ninja Gaiden is likely to be outsourced (why they are fine with this after Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, I have no idea). I can appreciate Nioh for being better Souls-styled games than even the progenitor FromSoftware developed ones, but Ninja Gaiden is truly special. 

     

    Wo Long and Rise of the Ronin I'm sure will be fine games, but I really miss incredibly difficult 3D games such as these.

      When it comes to Ninja Gaiden the first one was too slow paced for me. As for NGS2 the story campaign was enjoyable the first few runs but it gets stale very quickly. I prefer co-op in NGS2 not the single player experience because you can learn to use new weapons and adopt new strategies to tackle the games harder bosses and missions that you pick up from other players. Playing as a team in co-operative play is far more appealing than a linear single player experience.

       

      The PS4 version is much easier to finish due to the balance changes that were made for the team missions. I would have preferred a much harder/prestigious trophy list than the PS3 one. As for Yaiba, the series was dead as soon as NG3 and it's sequel came out NG3 Razor's Edge both were a complete let down. Ninja Gaiden is quite a niche game anyways, when you alienate a small player-base you cannot afford to for lack of a better word piss off your hardcore fans.

       

      People paid full price for NG3 Vanilla thinking it was a direct port of the Wii U version and we got a watered-down experience, a single weapon, ninpo and character. Then they released NG3 RE a year later I think it was and that was full retail price as well. Very few pro players played/enjoyed their time with NG3/NG3RE than its predecessors.

      I still stand by my opinion that 360 NG2 is one of the most intense, chaotic, and rewarding action games I've ever played.

      Beating that game for the 1st time was a true journey, every time you beat a boss or made to the next chapter it felt like a real triumph. 

      No-oh 1 actually gave me that same feeling too oddly enough.

      I highly disagree on them being better souls games, From Software games our in a tier all in there own, but as straight action games No-oh is clearly the better title.

      I still respect your opinion tho, so not hating. 

       

      Even after all that nostalgia I have for OG 2, I did end up finding Sigma 2 to be the more balanced, focus and technical experience(due to the lower enemy count/higher hp pool so you were not forced to just UT spam every room) 

      Just sucks you have to beat the game 8times in the fucking modern port. 

            

  14. Ehhh game doesn't look great imo.
  15. Saw this on Play-Asia when I was ordering OSTs. Is this a Souls-like?
