  1. Is it possible to play 1-3 and avoid the fourth list completely? Or is that list going to auto load when I start the digital bundle?
  2. It’s still $40. And making me repurchase content I already bought. This is bullshit. I would buy a standalone upgrade for this expansion, but I’m not being forced to buy shit twice to get a single piece of paywalled content.
  3. This is a solid list. I definitely enjoyed Crew 2. Project Cars remains on my radar. Didn't care for Hot Wheels. It's ok, but feels like a massive missed opportunity due to a number of design flaws. Onrush was good, but I think the plat is now unobtainable. As a more obscure offering, Art of Rally looks fantastic. Physical is coming out shortly so looking forward to playing that. I also enjoyed Gear Shifters, but that's more of a twin stick than an actual racer.
  4. I think the only interesting remain debate to be had is; is My Name is Mayo shovel ware?
  5. Game is now available in NA, also not currently showing as free upgrade (digital version)
  6. I don't think I'm quite that much, but if were counting everything from PS1 on, its definitely tens of thousands I didn't spend much on PS1/2, but the consoles plus peripherals would still have been close to a grand. I didn't buy many games for those consoles. The PS3 was $1000 at launch on it's own. I've got hundreds of PS3 games if you count digital and physical games. Plus annual PS Plus fees for a decade - that's like $500 right there. PS4 console and peripherals, a PSVR, a PS5...plus all the games. I don't even want to hazard a guess there, but probably at least 5k I would say the Vita is probably my most expensive console. I have most of the physical NA Vita games, an almost full set of Play Asia limiteds (those are close to $100 each by the time you factor shipping and duty). and 3 Vita consoles. I would say I probably spent 10k on Vita alone. So I'll guess 25-30 thousand? Probably that's an underestimate though.
  7. Am I looking at something different that this thread refers to? The tile on this site for the game looks great.
  8. This game has really underwhelmed. I enjoy racers, and how can you go wrong with Hot Wheels? But this game is just poorly designed. On the positive side, the cars look great, and really capture the Hot Wheels iconic vehicles. On the negative side, everything else. Track designs are annoying, especially once they have sections with no side rails. Controls and handling are poor, and it is virtually impossible to properly navigate the tracks. Throw in boost pads positioned on corners, because that makes sense, and jumps that are poorly aligned and races become frustrating. Unless you play on easy, in which case the AI is brain dead and you can easily win every race with no competition after the first corner. And that really is the ultimate failing of the game. It is either frustratingly difficult on Medium, or brain dead easy on Easy. There's no challenge, or too much challenge. And this ruins the game, because it renders most of the vehicles unusable. You have this great collection of cars, but no race tiers. I've rarely seen this - every event is open, you can use any vehicle. But you won't win unless you use a handful of effective vehicles. Which basically renders the game highly repetitive after the first couple of races. I'm not sure why they wouldn't have created vehicle classes so at least there was some variety. And really they needed to dial back the ridiculous level of rubber banding on Medium and higher difficulties. As it is, the game is really just a huge disappointment and a waste of potential with the Hot Wheels license. While not unplayable, I would just recommend people avoid it. Far too long of a game that is really devoid of engaging racing.
  9. Harsh. But I definitely laughed 😂
  10. ^This I don't see this having any impact on legit games. The only series I can think of that would fall into a grey zone would be the Break games. Technically they are all asset flip games, but they aren't really shovelware. The Fun and Run games, sure. But most indie games would be specifically excluded from this crackdown. I think Sony has worded it well - Multiple concepts and product variants, published by individual partners, that have duplicative functionality or experiences, differentiated only by minor variances of functionality or assets. Really this is intended to deal specifically with the Jump/Stroke spam. Even Breakthrough gaming is unlikely to be impacted.
  11. @The Alchemist has posted the source. The website is in the linked Twitter post. I have been advised that the letter is legit.
  12. Not sure if I can link to the site with the article, but it's up on Twitter. I'm sure other outlets will pick this up. From the Twitter link An anonymous source has sent us the following information that was included in the dev letter. In the letter, Sony Playstation states: “SIE strives to ensure that customers can search and discover the full breadth of experiences on PlayStation, and that partners have a fair means of being discovered. When partners oversaturate or “spam” PlayStation™Store with many variants of the same type of content, it can negatively impact both the customer and partner experience. Partner Requirements & Allowances When SIE reviews the content submitted to PlayStation™Store, products that have the following characteristics are identified as “spam” or “repetitive” content: Products whose functionality and/or assets are copied or are not meaningfully different from products already published on PlayStation™Store, irrespective of the publisher of record. Multiple concepts and product variants, published by individual partners, that have duplicative functionality or experiences, differentiated only by minor variances of functionality or assets. o Where possible, partners should consider aggregating small, similar content experiences into a single product, using in-game commerce to expand or extend the experience. o As an example, supplying different trophies for each product is not enough to differentiate content.” If any of the devs break these things mentioned above, Sony Playstation has said the following in that letter about the actions in place: Content or partners found to have breached policy may be subject to the following enforcement actions: Content Excluded from PlayStation™Store Merchandising Discoverability on PlayStation™Store is restricted. Content does not feature in automatic merchandising placements, such as the “New Releases” strand. Content Delisted from PlayStation™Store Content is not searchable and can only be accessed via direct link on web and mobile stores. Impact on CertOps Process Content is not permitted to proceed to publication until policy violations are rectified. Review slot availability is affected. Content Takedown Content is removed from PlayStation™Store until policy violations are rectified. PlayStation®Partners Account Suspension or Termination Multiple rejections or takedowns may result in the suspension or eventual termination of a partner’s PlayStation Partners account. Suspension limits the ability to submit and publish new content. Existing published content can remain on PlayStation™Store, if that content complies with SIE policies. Termination of an account results in the removal of all content from PlayStation™Store. At this time, take the above with a grain of salt until further information comes out. If true, I'm sure this will please a lot of people
  13. That's crazy since the game is currently $3! I'll be grabbing it for sure
  14. Played this a while back. You have summed up my thoughts entirely. Frustrating not fun. Even for a game where the bad controls are intended, this missed the mark.
  15. I currently have Premium, but really would say unless you want the old PS2 classics, the Extra is the optimal tier. There are definitely some great games there that are worth the extra subscription and would justify the extra yearly cost. I'm not sure I can say the same for Premium. On that note, does anyone know if/how you downgrade? I need to renew my sub, but would like to do so at the Extra tier, not Premium. I don't want my subscription to lapse. How do I switch down from Premium or extend only at the Extra level?
