  1. Was considering getting that Doctor Who game next week, the Edge of Reality one (not the VR version, the non VR version), but I wonder how the trophy list is, because it seems like there's misables in it, like getting through a temple without getting caught by Daleks. Unless the game is level based and not open world (the store page didn't give me much in terms of explaining the game).

     

    But hey, I might get Red Faction: Guerrilla this week because having looked up, it's like $10 right now on sale, which is a real steal for sure. And hey, I enjoyed it on PS3 too, so replaying it on the PS4 will be a blast for me. And I assume that does include all the DLC and all that right? As in, nothing to download? Granted on the PS3, I never did play the DLC, so that would be a new experience for me.

  2. [AC Valhalla] Bleh, game annoyed me. Ran into a glitch where a key would not spawn on the body. Luckily, reloading the autosave fixed it and the body for the key could be looted so I could get the book. Would've been a save to reload, but I hadn't actually saved the game before that (and my last save was from last week when I played last).

     

    So glad it worked, because if that didn't, I probably would have stopped with the game x.x

  3. [AC Valhalla] I now know where on the map these three daughters are. I'm not going to fight them though, as I'm still a bit too low of a power (only around 60 I think when I last looked).

    Heck, I can't defeat this first drengr I found, didn't even realize he was a high level xD

     

    But yeah, running around East Anglia at the moment since I'm good enough to collect stuff from here.

     

    Going to take quite a while to get the platinum with all this stuff I have to do in free roam x.x.

     

    Also, Seahenge is my favourite name for a structure in the game so far xD

    1. Copanele

      Copanele

      To be honest, fighting that way too overlevelled Witch at only lvl 100 was the most satisfying Assassin's Creed battle I ever had in the series.

      That should have been the final boss of...anything really xD

    2. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      Well for now, I'm avoiding them... even though for a kick in the teeth, I found the location of where you get Thor's helmet from from just running around. So I have to beat them to get that item xD

       

      Ah well, at least I know where it is. I also found one of the alpha animals and tried it. Did not realize how high a level it was and got beat. But I went back to have it discovered again :D

       

      At least level 90 stuff is now in the white for me, so I can technically take on some of the zealots if I want to. But man, I was running around with a zealot nearby, but some of these guys who try to ambush you tried going after me, and it alerted the nearby zealot... which was over level 100. So I had to book it out of there xD

       

      But I now know that I can make the seer's hut next. I built the museum and the stables before that and afterwards, Valka arrived. So yeah, she's my next priority. And weird thing was, I was going to do some missions in the game too, but I got side tracked with clearing out most of East Anglia instead with some blue things to do including flyting... which I don't really want to do xD

  4. [AC Valhalla] Bleh, I despise having to catch those flying pieces of paper. Not a fun parkour thing to do at all.

      DrakeHellsing

      Wait, do I need a fishing pole to fish correctly? Cause all I have is the line, so maybe that's why? But then again, the kid didn't show me what to do, I got the hut... and that's it. I spoke to the kid, but he just wants stuff.

    3. AK-1138

      AK-1138

      Here's a trick I discovered: assuming you have it, if you use the ability that slows down time, you can halt the movement of the tattoo paper thing and just pick it out of the air, potentially eliminating the entire chase, as it were. You can't activate it in certain situations though, like when you're running across a rope.

    4. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      Yeah @Copanele mentioned it before. I don't believe I have that ability, but man, that would be useful for sure because oh boy, those chases and the parkour stuff isn't exactly the greatest.

  5. [AC Valhalla] With building the places in your little village, is there any importance in getting anything in particular? As in, should I focus on certain buildings or not really?

     

    Just been curious about that now, as I just built the Hunter's Hut so I have access to any of those legendary animals. I have the Assassin's place as well so all that's unlocked too. But now, not sure which one should be next, if I should go for the Fishing hut or the museum or anything else (I have some Roman artifacts I can have displayed. But I do need to fish, get these Bullhead fish for an offering too).

     

    Tough call. But I'm still enjoying the game for the most part and finding most things is pretty straightforward. Though one side quest I can't complete until my charisma is up by doing more flyting, so that's going to be annoying. But ah well.

     

    I did complete an amusing side quest last night. Dude had an axe in his head, which just amused me. That and I don't think I realized right away, even took me a moment to realize he had it in his head.

     

    Still glad I got those 10 assassinations in a row out of the way already thanks to a story mission.

      Seconded on the Seers hut. The Stable is a good one too as it affects the performance of your horses and in turn your ability to traverse terrain faster and easier.

      Trophy-wise 'Overdesign II' is the one that usually gives most people a bit of an issue, so it's worth researching that one a bit if you haven't already :)

    3. Willstown

      Willstown

      Ooooh yep do the stable as well, training your horse to swim is superhandy

    4. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      I'll get that building when it's available for sure, as right now, only level 2 settlement xD

       

      Also, a question for you guys if you can clear it up. I checked the trophy guide in regards to a mastery point and it sounds like they are available after I get all the nodes filled in. Is that correct that I do actually need to obtain every single node before I can get mastery points? Just want to make sure I'm understanding that correctly is all.

  6. [AC Valhalla] Finally tracked down my first zealot in the game... and it went poorly. It was on the map near me and bugging me, so I went to fight the zealot and it turns out that the zealot was a level/power 90. So yeah, got my ass handed to me. But at least it's been discovered, so there's that.

     

    Also, I found a thing I need to give items to as well. I need like, 10 cow heads for a sacrifice of some sort (it was a blue icon, so a mystery to complete). I'm guessing sacrificing these things to Odin or something like that.

     

    The other annoying thing I have though is that whenever I collect just anything, my quests wants to update for some reason or another, even though nothing happens in there.

    1. AK-1138

      AK-1138

      Yeah, the quest notification thing has been a bit of a problem in all the RPG lite ACs, always nagging you to set an active quest and all that. There's an option to turn it off, but it also disables the objective notification thing when you're on an active quest, meaning you'll have to consult the map screen for that information. And what you're supposed to do next isn't always obvious, either.

    2. MidnightDragon

      MidnightDragon

      My PS3's current inability to stay connected to PSN more than a few minutes at a time will likely mean I won't be able to finish RDR before it goes offline...unless I figure out how to make it stop doing that. Does suck, but already pretending those are unobtainable for now.

    3. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      The one thing I hate with a passion is Ubisoft Connect. I mean, if you're signed into the internet, you pretty much have to be connected to their pointless service to even play the game. Can't even skip that phrase either. It's either sign in, or go back... to sign in again.

  7. [AC Valhalla] Quick question, do I have to unlock flyting in the story before I can do these flytes? I just ask as I'm in one of the towns where it says there's one, but no one's there to talk to. Don't ask me how to spell out the name of the town either, but it's the one you can get to at the start of the game.

    2. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      Yeah, I try and aim for both attacking and favour as an example, or block and favour on one dice sort of thing so I can try and get the favour up all I want and hopefully use it. But I'll see how they get later on in terms of difficulty.

       

      I imagine soon I'll get to the whole, settlement building and all that, since that's what the brother mentioned in the game, or something similar.

       

      But yeah, so far, I'm enjoying the game for sure :)

    3. Infected Elite

      Infected Elite

      Settlement is fun. Its hard to prioritize, but really, for what the game is, it really is up to you. Its good. 

       

      I'm curious if we see a new AC in fall 2022 since they still did DLC for this one. Or if its fall 2023.

       

      If going for plat, i advise doing Cairns asap. They were the most boring part and difficult... even with a guide.

       

    4. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      Well, I've yet to run across them, but I'll keep them in mind for when I do.

       

      The treasure maps. Do I need to collect the treasure from them for the platinum too? Or just having the maps are good enough? Since I found one map so far and the treasure I can go and get, since the general location is my next quest anyway.

  8. Bought Assassin's Creed Valhalla today at long last. So gonna give that a go soon enough. And yeah, got the disc version too... but no, I am not going to wait a whole 3 hours for the patch to download. I'll let it download in the background while I play the game itself and then reload the game once the patch is done.

  9. Hey, small question for a later date, but I'm thinking of grabbing Surviving Mars on the PS4. Is there one of those packs that includes the main DLC as well? As in, Space Race, the underground one and the terraforming one? Or do I have to get the main game and purchase those separately?

    I mean, I guess I can, if need be, get the season pass. But I wasn't sure if any of those, say, deluxe packs or whichever works for what I'm after instead.

     

    I guess I just have an itch to play one of these, build a colony type of games on the console xD

    1. Cleggworth

      Cleggworth

      Yes and no. The first colony edition contains the season pass with the two expansions and a whole bunch of other bits and pieces. Then they went and released another DLC like 2 days ago which isn't included🤦‍♂️

    2. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      Ah okay, that might still work out regardless. Didn't realize that the newest DLC, the underground one by the sounds of it, was so new.

       

      But good to know that the first colony one could be the version I get. Though the price is a bit up there. Not sure, I'll see next week when I get paid and all that. But thanks for the answer anyway :)

  10. [Fishing: Barents Sea] Picked this one up and so far, it's okay Only issue I have right now is the boat controls, in particular, getting it to actually stop and not start reversing xD

  11. While I do need to get back to Cooking Mama and finish that up (however long that will take). I am curious on these Fishing games, the ones that are called Fishing: Barents Sea and the other one North Atlantic.

     

    How do those sort of games play out? I mean, the Barents Sea one is under $30 at the moment, but I'm just curious on what they're like.

  12. [Cooking Mama] So glad the game actually let me switch users to sign in with a guest account to get that multiplayer trophy out of the way since I did not have a second controller available.

     

    Although it took me a moment to figure out how to switch users, since I usually never need to do such a thing. I just have my account on my PS4 and that's it.

     

    Also, no Mama... I should not have my own game xD

    1. Troz

      Troz

      seems like a game that would be perfect for the vita. how is it? I know it has a lot of problems with the copyrights

    2. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      I've not had many issues. Using the motion controls is weird as the game has asked me to use the touchpad to spread stuff on ingredients like coloured cheese onto a slice to bread. Or shake the controller gently to shake salt, pepper and the likes. But otherwise, it's analogue sticks, as in, wiggle it up and down to slice veggies... which can feel a little unresponsive sometimes.

       

      I guess it's because when slicing say, a spring onion, it wants it diced and since each level is timed, you are against the clock and time can be pretty tight in the end.

       

      Only had to restart a recipe like maybe 2 or 3 times because of either the timer or doing something incorrectly and only getting either one or two stars (and you need 3 stars on each stage to 3 star the recipe).

       

      But other than that, I've been finding it mostly easy (the "remember the order the ingredients go in" I'm not the best at xD ).

    3. MidnightDragon

      MidnightDragon

      Mama’s voice clips will annoy you after a while.

  13. [Cooking Mama] Just played a bit of this game and so far, it's not bad. Had to turn the sound down though in the game cause oh boy, it was loud, while I have my TV at a comfortable sound level, Mama's voice in the game was too loud xD

     

    And I get with the motion controls so far. Had the use of the touchpad twice so far which was weird, having to actually swipe around it instead of usually just having to press it.

     

    The timing in some steps are a bit tight though. Did the mochi recipe and rolling them in the power for the different colours, it felt as though I was going to fail it with how slow the rolling was.

     

    But so far, enjoying it, nothing too out there based upon the two that I've done.

  14. I've not played any games lately, but man, seeing that the new Cooking Mama game was released a few days ago at long last, been considering grabbing that.

     

    But I am curious on how it plays with a controller. Only other one I played was on the 3DS (I think it's the Bon Appetite one), and I didn't mind that one, even if some of the recipes I wasn't sure what to do in some of the stages, like turning and frosting a cake.

     

    Does the game use the motion of the controller? Or does it just use the analogue stick to get things done?

    1. MidnightDragon

      MidnightDragon

      I platted it. It's not perfect and some of the controls are a tad awkward, but you get the hang of it pretty quickly. They have practice mode.

    2. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      Ah, practice mode. That's always nice to mess around in. Has it on the 3DS one too, which helps if you're unsure on what to do for certain actions for sure.

       

      Just to be sure, you only need to worry about one side right? As in, either traditional or vegetarian? You don't need to worry about both right for the platinum? I mean, I'll check out the vegetarian option regardless, but so long as I don't need to focus on both sides, then I should be fine. Don't want to get overwhelmed whenever I grab the game and play it xD

  15. Brought Horizon Zero Dawn today, the Complete Edition. It was like $20 in store, which for me, was a fantastic price. Sure I could've grabbed it for free earlier on, but downloading such a file... yeah, sometimes that doesn't work out, or takes me a few tries.

     

    Regardless, got the game, so, gonna try it out later on tonight :D

    1. Infected Elite

      Infected Elite

      I bought the complete edition around 15$ on sale physical. Started new save and it was great. DLC was amazing. i really hope this becomes THE sony franchise alongside its usual heavy hitters. Even though we don't have 2 yet, i already would love to see this get at least a trilogy.

       

      Thursday HZ 2 state of play! hopeful release date November 2021

    2. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      Yeah, it was on sale for $20 over here for the physical edition. I believe the PlayStation Hits games were all on sale, so even God of War and other such games were around $20 instead of the normal $35. But for me, still a good way to get the game.

       

      I wonder how I'll do at the game. I shall find out a bit later on when I get around to putting the game in and starting it up :D

    3. Infected Elite

      Infected Elite

      it starts off slow but it teaches you the basics. its good.

       

      35 normal for a greatest hits? dang!!

  16. Played a bit of Subnautica earlier on. It was interesting for sure. But I found it amusing that not long after I started and went for a swim into a cave, that I just died from an exploding fish xD

     

    I wasn't even mad when that happened. That was just amazing xD

    1. DrBloodmoney

      DrBloodmoney

      Fish really are the dark horses of the gaming world.

       

      They seem all innocent and standoffish, but beneath those unassuming exteriors, beat the, cold, vicious hearts of killers 😱

       

      If they aren't smashing into Mario when he's just trying to have a swim, or shooting deadly bubbles at Link just for having the audacity to walk near their lake, or hiring feline goons to take out Earthworm Jim, they are arming themselves with high-tech weaponry in Shutshimi or James Pond, or even building themselves robotic suits to kill you on land in Timesplitters.

       

      Hell, even when dead, they will team up with Agent 47 to do more cranial destruction.

       

      maxresdefault-2.jpg

       

       

      Beware the piscine menace, friends.

       

      Fall not for their innocent, scaly smiles.

  17. Finally thought I'd go and download Subnautica before the freeness of it's gone. I might also grab Enter the Gungeon, but unsure.

     

    I'll at least make some more room on my PS4 for Horizon Zero Dawn and download that at some point too.

     

    And yeah, I know there's those other games too, but they honestly don't really interest me enough to warrant grabbing them, even if they are free to download. I mean, even if I did, I'd probably just acknowledge I downloaded them and then just not bother with them.

    1. kindajustin

      kindajustin

      You can claim titles without needing to make space for them on a console or anything. If space is the main issue, don't let that stop you from claiming stuff that appeals to you. It's not often they give away genuinely free games.

    2. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      Yeah, but even then, some of those don't appeal to me so much. And yeah, while I have VR, those VR titles don't sound all that interesting to me. But hey, still glad I grabbed Subnautica as is.

  18. A question. Subnautica is free right now for the play at home thing, which I'll pick up before the 23rd rolls around. But does the game still have those issues people talk about? Such as crashing and other such issues?

     

    And yeah, it's the only game right now I want from the free stuff (HZD I'll be grabbing once it's up on the 23rd).

    1. Atoya

      Atoya

      Not really sure, but I think the game should be Gucci 

       

      grab all the games even tho VR ones maybe one day u will play them

    2. JoesusHCrust

      JoesusHCrust

      The performance is fine. I've had one crash but nothing serious. I lost I think 6 minutes of gaming. Save often and you'll be fine. I'm enjoying the game, even though it isn't a genre I'd usually play. I'd recommend picking up all the games. You might as well. Who knows, one day maybe someone will give you a VR set or something. Weirder things have happened!!! 

    3. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      I actually have a PSVR headset, so I'm good there too. But yeah, I might get them all in the end. But at least Subnautica for sure.

       

      I never did pick up Ratchet and Clank when that was offered. No need to as I had bought the game way back when and had played it then xD

  19. [Planet Coaster] A question for those that have played the game before. Is there a way to play a version of a sandbox mode, but to have funds? As in, remove the whole, unlimited funds ordeal? I mean, sure, that's a nice idea, but I wouldn't mind a version where I get to build my park up, but also worry about funds too.

     

    Unless I am missing something and the option is there elsewhere? Cause I did go with the first option in sandbox mode just to take a look, but it seems like everything is unlocked from the start. I mean, there were a bunch of mascot characters, a lot of rollercoasters, scenery and the likes.

  20. [Planet Coaster] Editing a rollercoaster in this game is not that intuitive. Trying to do the simple tutorial and apparently my rollercoaster is too scary and not exciting enough. So yeah, I try and edit the damn thing and it's not that great with trying to move pieces to either lower all these airtimes or whatever.

     

    Bleh, I'll deal with it again another time. Might mess around in the sandbox instead for a bit, that way, no constrained by stupid challenges that limit how I want something to be. I mean, heck, if I want to make a scary rollercoaster, then let me. It's everyone else's fault if they're too much of a wimp to ride it :P

  21. Finally got the Warrant of Fitness done for the car. Got it tested last week, but the door needed fixing and they could do it yesterday. So I'm just glad that's finally done. They had to replace the lock since that's what was messed up (the lock on the front passenger was stuck in the lock position, couldn't unlock it).

     

    But ah well, that's done for the year, so that's all good :D

  22. Grabbed Monster Sanctuary today and gave it a go. So far, it's a neat little game for sure.

  23. Bleh, Netflix seems to be having troubles today. Wanted to watch a few episodes of something, but after one episode (which is like, 10 minutes), it stops loading seconds into the next episode. Did it twice, which sucks.

     

    Well, it was on the PS4 anyway where I was watching it. And I know it's not my internet. And the PSN status has everything working fine. So it's defiantly a Netflix thing at the moment. At least, I'm sure of it.

  24. Still haven't decided between two games I want to get. Either Fell Seal or Minecraft Dungeons. Both seem like they'll be fun, but I'm not sure which one I'd like to pick up in the end (either this week, or wait until I get paid again next week).

    1. NERVergoproxy

      NERVergoproxy

      Just finished Minecraft Dungeons recently. Was quite enjoyable. If it wasnt that I was playing multiple games woulda had finished it much faster. It's actually a pretty short game. Super easy to cheese trophies too.

  25. Was looking at getting either Fell Seal, or maybe that Minecraft Dungeons. But not sure on either of them. I mean if Minecraft Dungeons, getting the platinum might be annoying because of the 20 revivals (no second controller). But that Fell Seal looks interesting too. And both games are roughly the same price at that.
