  1. AS region still does not get the PS Now service, guess I have to play those PS3 games on an emulator. Actually there even aren't many PS2 games in the PS store (NA region), so I'm wondering if Sony is not willing to port those games to PS4/5 due to specific reasons
  2. Automatic 0.5x speed but with some glitches And if I play with my earbud jack the speed would even change hahahahaha
  3. USPS Diamond or Pearl?
  4. Plat #155 - Arcade Game Series: Galaga

    Difficulty: 4/10

     

    Thankfully this game provides a quick-save function (and a glitch) so obtaining the plat is easier than I thought. A retro game that brings nostalgia, challenging but fun.

  5. I played it on my switch since my arcade controller only works on switch, but I've heard that getting the highest rank for every stage is a little bit challenging.
  6. Streets of Rage 4? The best action game I've played last year
  7. Plat #154 - Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

    Difficulty: 4/10

     

    Pretty enjoy this game and have to admit that it's hard to find a metroidvania game that allows me chill and relax while playing, like Symphony of the Night and Dawn of Sorrow. Actually the system is similar to DoS: collecting shards by defeating monsters and upgrading weapons. While comparing to Curse of the Moon series, however, enemies' action patterns are less readable and predictable, but most bosses could be defeated in cheesy ways after getting more shards. I would give it a 8 out of 10 and if it's more polished with less glitches and CE-34878-0 errors I would rate it 9.

  8. I use an extended SSD instead of the original HDD, and currently it's like 750GB/920GB usage
  9. Yesterday I was playing Bloodstained Ritual of the Night on my slim, got several CE-34878-0 errors and restarted the game. The game worked fine until I turn on my ps4 slim today. The game got automatically deleted from my ps4. I googled but only found one thread on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/PS4/comments/1x9myd/games_being_are_deleted_from_ps4_automatically/ Notes: 1. I bought this game before it became free in PS+ 2. The game only got deleted from my console. It's still in my library 3. Thankfully all savefiles are still there Any Ideas?
  10. Plat #153 - We Were Here

    Difficulty: 2/10 (with a guide)

    Haven't noticed this game until my friend ask me if I would like to plat this game with her. It is a lovely puzzle-solving game that forces players to communicate and describe what they found. Fun to play but sometimes playing as a librarian makes me wanna take a nap, especially during the RGB door puzzle.

     

    Plat #152 - NieR: Automata

    Difficulty: 3/10

    Appreciate that producers of this game offers a trophy shop, or farming body-collecting and finding all weapons could be extremely frustrating. TBH this game looks more like a 3D danmaku shooter instead of a pure 3D action game, and I have to change the controller buttons to not mess up the in-game actions easily. The ending scroll of the ending E is pretty challenging that I can't get much further beyond the "Sony Computer Entertainment Inc" (ironically). But adding a cooperation system by deleting every player's save files is sooooo avant-garde, positively.

  11. Plat #151 (and 100%) - Marvel's Spider-Man (PS4)

    Difficulty: 3/10

     

    Almost a perfect open world game - no frame rate drops or CE-34878-0, instead the swinging and combat are smooth. There are only two flaws: (1) Spidey is so kind that he let Norman escape at the end, and (2) sometimes the game forces players to focus on something else after finishing a main quest, which makes the NG+ run little bit frustrating

  12. Plat #141 - #145 Some Ratalaika Games No specific comment on those, but I enjoyed Super Destronaut DX much more than other games in the Ratalaika bundle #1 Plat #146 - Strider (PS4) Difficulty: 4/10 A classic reboot on the current gen consoles, with a metroidvania system. + Action system. It is interesting that there's no input speed limit, that the harder you smash the button, the higher damage you will deal. I wonder what will happen with a turbo controller. Besides, the visual effects when you hit enemies are fascinating. - Cannot use dpad to control character. Usually such platformer games will support both dpad and stick for controlling your character, but since Strider has already used dpad for weapon switch, the only way to control character is to use left stick, sometimes could be tricky. - SFX when open the map. Sounds like scratching nails on the chalkboard... Plat #147 - Assault Gunners (PS4) Difficulty: 3/10 It's a HD port from ps vita so I won't judge about it's graphics, but the gameplay is overwhelmingly tedious: All stories are told in a scrolling text, BGMs are dull and cannot bring up the mood. Besides, leveling up all parts are also frustrating... Plat #148 - Root Letter (PS4) Difficulty: 1/10 To be honest it's more like a travel sim instead of a visual novel, mostly due to its crappy story, and the protagonist + Artworks that perfectly depict Shimane - The protagonist. I'm pretty sure the writer would like him to be an energetic young man with curiosity who would never give up before achieving goal (and this is why he's called Max). However, during my gameplay, he is more like an asshole stalker who (1) directly greets others using their nicknames even though it's the first time they meet (imaging calling a young female "bitch", what an ill-mannered person), and (2) uses language assault and intimidating to uncover other's painful past - The crappy story. Obviously the writer was struggling between a horror theme and a romantic theme. The atmosphere of first 8 chapters are peaceful (almost), nostalgic and sort of bittersweet. Since only the reply of letter will affect the ending, even if something weird is chosen as the reply, the main story will stay peaceful until Chapter 9. So if you unfortunately trigger the "Cursed" or "Reincarnation" ending on your first playthrough, the later plot would be as cult as hell. Would it be better if Misaki and Yukari could have their own endings? Plat #149 - Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments Difficulty: 2/10 I'm glad that the game is re-released. The story is not as fun as its sequel, but those puzzles are really challenging. To be honest, some collectable trophies are hard to track without a guide, especially when there's no skip cutscenes and skip conversations, which means you'll have to replay the whole chapter again if something's missed Plat #150 - Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 Difficulty: 4/10 An action game with classic Castlevania 3 vibes. Switching between different partners, visiting different routes and even fighting against different final bosses make the game worth to play several hours. And for more challenges there are boss rush and solo mode. Besides those chiptune BGMs are as hyped as hell, and I'm wondering if I could get a copy of the game OST... I haven't tried Ritual of the Night yet, maybe it's time to add it to my wishlist?
