  1. So it looks like the the Harpies in Serious Sam 4 were censored after all, they just have a slightly different design than originally thought. The developer seemingly lied about the content of the final game, so it's back on the list. https://www.thegeekgetaway.com/2020/09/serious-sam-4-censored.html I'm sure you'll want to chime in on this one @Lance_87. Thoughts?
  2. IO Interactive made a post on their site detailing the game modes that will be in the upcoming Hitman 3. At the end of this post, they talk about how the competitive multiplayer Ghost Mode won't be featured in the the new game, and the servers for Ghost Mode in Hitman 2 will be shut down on the 31st of August. Full quote below. The servers for Hitman 2's Sniper Assassin Mode will also be shut down "before the launch of Hitman 3". Source: https://www.ioi.dk/hitman-3-game-modes/ I'm not familiar with the game or its trophy lists, but people have informed me that the only trophies that will be affected by this are for Hitman 2's Sniper Assassin Mode. However, in the quote above, IO Interactive have stated that they will share a "solution" to the multiplayer trophies in the coming months. This should mean that the 100% will be obtainable after the servers close down.
  3. The Haachama & Coco situation is really shitty. I understand Hololive have a Chinese branch and have to protect their talent their too, but this is a perfect example of why companies shouldn't get involved with China in the first place. I've seen the offending clip and in no way was that worth a 3 week suspension. They were thrown under the bus to appease China, no two ways about it. Now I've seen a lot of backlash for this on Twitter and rightly so, but there are also people encouraging others to go into the Hololive member stream chats and start talking about the situation, bringing up Taiwan, Hong Kong, etc. I wish these people would fuck off quite honestly because they don't know what they're talking about. This is an issue to take up with Cover Corp, not the talent themselves. They aren't responsible for what happened and are just trying to make a living. Doing shit like that is only going to increase the chance of them getting into trouble. Also, I'm subbed to a bunch of vtuber clip channels on YouTube, and apparently this Hololive Moments channel I was subbed to are shills for the Chinese Communist Party, so just a heads up.
  4. It looks like some changes were made to the dialogue during the localization of 13 Sentinels Aegis Rim. I was made aware of this Reddit post, and while I don't think the age rating change is anything to be concerned about, somebody posted a link in the comments that claims to show the differences between the Japanese and English text. https://imgur.com/a/CCSTWZ0 In the first comparison, some liberties were taken with the inclusion of the whole "binary" thing. In the second comparison, the meaning on the bottom line was quite clearly changed. So instead of this cross dressing guy making it clear he wouldn't be interested in guys in the Japanese version, in the localised version, it's made to be more open-ended instead. Seems like it should be on the list assuming this is true, so I've gone ahead and done so, at least until proven false. As was pointed out by @Suminya in this thread, the mysterious dust cloud that appears in the trailer posted on Koei Tecmo's North American channel and the official PlayStation channel also covers the UI, so it's unlikely this will appear in the game itself, at least in this form. The EU and JP version of the trailer isn't censored. If I had to guess, I would say PlayStation objected to the content of the trailer and got Koei Tecmo to hastily edit it before they would post it on their channel. This is definitely worth keeping an eye on though because I could see PlayStation taking things further and getting Koei Tecmo to make changes to the game itself.

      Not really a fan of Microsoft's Xbox nor Phil Spencer anymore, as my posts imply. However I commend them for this, because they're doing the noble thing.

       

      I would bet Sony wouldn't be censoring if they weren't at the top of that hill.

  6. I'm very happy to hear this game isn't coming to PlayStation. Props to Inti Creates for sticking to their guns and not releasing an inferior product just for some extra sales. I hope more Japanese developers follow suit. I bought a Switch for this exact reason, so I'll be purchasing the game there. It's nice to see it getting an Xbox version as well. Could this is a sign of things to come? They could position themselves as the go-to place for Japanese game fans in the west if they wanted to like PlayStation used to be.
  7. I'm curious if they'll stick with the turn-based combat of Yakuza 7 or go back to how it used to be. I think it'll be the latter.
  8. This is pretty crazy. I was shocked when I heard the news. Microsoft have that "big swinging dick" money and they aren't afraid to use it. Microsoft now have ownership over a lot of IP I care about, even if the games Bethesda have put out don't always turn out as great as I would have hoped. I've seen people here trying to be optimistic about what this means for PlayStation gamers, but I imagine we'll be seeing a lot of console exclusives for Xbox going forward. There wouldn't have been much reason for Microsoft to buy them otherwise. It sounds like there still will be *some* multiplatform releases, so I wonder what those will be. Maybe just the lesser known titles that need all the sales they can get.
  9. I'm fine with the PS5 being huge so long as it's quiet. The PS4's fan noise got pretty ridiculous at times - it was actually pretty distracting. Going off the first picture, it looks like it might be a bit awkward inserting discs into this thing thanks to the curvature of the console. Hope I'm wrong.
  10. Not too sure if I'll like the gameplay in this one, but I have faith in Vanillaware. They haven't let me down yet!
  11. This got delisted recently and I figured I'd better buy a physical copy before they start getting expensive.
  12. I don't feel any need to rush out and buy a PS5 on day one. The only compelling launch title as far as I'm concerned is Demon's Souls, and it does look amazing, but I have a backlog *full* of games I'm looking forward to playing, so it can wait. I've decided that it's going to be my 400th platinum anyway (original game was my 100th). I also intend on making it the very first game I play on PS5, much like how Bloodborne was the first game I played on PS4. It will be a special experience I'm sure. But yeah, considering how I'm only at 326 platinums right now, it's probably going to be a good year or so after launch when I'll get a PS5. I've never bought a console on day one and I see no reason for that to change now.

    But screw PS5, the far more interesting topic to me right now are the Hololive EN vtubers. I've been obsessively watching their streams to the point where I haven't done much else. They truly are a blessing. 😇 Anyone hyped about the PS5 clearly doesn't have the right priorities. 😛

      @Undead Wolf Good thing I'm getting a PS5 in 2022 then. c;

       

      But yeah it actually works out great for me because due to COVID some games that I was really looking forward too (like Tales of Arise and Lego Skywalker Saga) got pushed back into 2021 anyways, so it's not like I have to have a PS5 right now. Though some of my friends tried to make the convincing argument that PS5 has PS4 BC, however, until the PS5 actually gets a stack of good games to play, I don't NEED to swap over the moment it comes out. 

       

      Demon's Souls, FF16, Kenna, and some other games are gonna be my first plats once I do get my PS5. Especially Demon's souls cause I'm doing a plat rain on the whole Dark Souls series trying to earn the plats in order from Demon's Souls through Dark Souls 3. >__> Been holding onto my Dark Souls 1 file for months now at the last trophy needed. Must... resissssst.

      As for Hololive VTubers I can't comment much on that. I'm not into that kind of stuff but if it brings you entertainment I say go for it. ~^__^~

      Damn... I've been slacking on the whole Vtube thing for a few days now. Even forgot to check on the new English-speaking girls from Hololive. I already have my English-speaking catgirl who I follow religiously, but I need to check the new girls as well to see what we're up to. ;)

       

      As for the PS5, I have the same perspective as you. No need to rush for a number of reasons. In fact, you need to check one of my latest updates to see where I'm throwing my money right now. :awesome:

      I think the PS5 looks better at launch than the PS4 did. Knack and Killzone: Shadowfall were met to mixed reviews, and they're rather unimpressive and uninspired compared to later PS4 exclusives.

       

      Still, I won't buy the PS5 Day One, and even if I wanted to I'm dead broke. Still a vast library of games on the PS4 I still need to cover, and there's a small selection I have left on the PS3/Vita.

       

      Rushing to buy the new console will go against the practices I've had since the PS2 era.

  13. I really like what I've seen so far. The whole medieval-like setting is a nice change of pace from the other more recent Final Fantasy titles. Seeing some of the people who are working on the game give me hope that this is going to turn out better than FFXV. Hopefully they actually release a complete product this time around without years worth of DLC and updates. I want them to give me a reason to play this game on day one.
  14. It's a good price, especially for the digital-only version. Sony must be taking quite a big loss with every one of those sold, hoping they'll make it back in software sales. I'm sure being cheaper by $100 will tempt a lot of normies. The price of that version is irrelevant to me though - I get my games physically whenever possible and that's not going to change next gen either. I'll be getting the disc version, but I'm in no rush. Maybe by the time I buy one, they'll bundle in a game or something.
  15. Spider-Man: Miles Morales I get since it's basically just a standalone expansion to a PS4 game, but Horizon Forbidden West too? What a strange decision... You'd think Sony would do everything in their power to convince PS4 owners to purchase a PS5 by tempting them with exclusives. I feel like the game is only going to be held back because of this.
  16. Okay, this is reassuring to some extent, but I would also like to know what games aren't going to be playable on PS5. I doubt they would do this, but they *should* publish a list of the games not compatible with the system. I imagine this will be left up to the community to figure out though. I'm in no rush to buy a PS5 and will be keeping my PS4 around until I know if my game collection will be affected or not. Also, what about the PS2 classics on PS4? Will they be playable?
  17. Okay, so Demon's Souls is a launch title. I don't know why they didn't just say that during the showcase, but whatever. It's the only real significant launch title from the looks of things too. The only other one that stands out is Miles Morales, but that's just a standalone expansion and is also releasing on PS4.
  18. We all knew it was coming. No physical version is lame though.
  19. A decent showcase overall. FFXVI was a nice surprise. I heard about the rumours, but I figured it was bullshit. I really liked what I saw. Hopefully it doesn't end up like the trainwreck that was FFXV. If they plan on having this massive DLC roadmap like that game did, I'll just wait until there's a "complete" edition. I'm not rally a Harry Potter fan, but I thought that Hogwarts game looked pretty decent. I guess it's that long-rumoured RPG. I'll keep an eye out for it. Not much new to say about RE8, but I thought I'd give it a nod here. Same goes for Death Loop. Looking forward to playing both of them. Demon's Souls looks amazing, but that was to be expected. Definitely the highlight of the showcase. Combat looks a lot more "meaty" than the original. I noticed the main character was making grunts when swinging their weapon. I'm surprised there was no release date given. I thought this might be a launch game or at least one coming out in the launch window. And I almost forgot, but I guess they announced a new God of War game is in development. What a shocker... I'll get around to playing the reboot eventually, but it's not really a priority. The price of the console is lower than I was expecting it to be. I thought $499 was going to be the cheapest option considering how this machine is supposedly more expensive to manufacture than the Xbox Series X (that's what I heard anyway). Sony must be taking a big loss with every console sold, especially with that $399 all-digital version. I'm sure that will be quite attractive to all the normies out there who can take or leave physical media. Definitely getting the disc version myself, but not at launch. The only game I *really* want a PS5 for is Demon's Souls and we don't even know when that's coming out.
  20. Hololive English has exceeded all my expectations. I've watched all of the debut streams from start to finish and I'm really impressed! They were all lovable in their own way. It's very difficult for me to pick a favourite, but if I had to, I'd probably go with Watson Amelia right now because of how full of energy and enthusiastic she was. I certainly wasn't expecting things to go in the direction they did thanks to the "Watson Concoction". 😄 Very entertaining stream. Plus, she's British, so I'm obligated to support her. 😛 The two "runners up" for me have to be Mori Calliope and Gawr Gura. Mori Calliope left a great first impression. I loved her personality. She can be a bit on he vulgar side sometimes, but you can tell she's actually really sweet. 😛 Oh, and her song was amazing! I've listened to it probably a dozen times already. 👌 Gawr Gura was undoubtedly the cutest of the bunch. Her stream was really funny. Like @Redgrave pointed out, she's a very good singer as well. ❤️ Ninomae Ina’nis' stream was pretty chill and wholesome despite her looking like some Cthulhu monster (she's actually human though). 😛 Really talented artist. What an amazing-looking end screen! And finally we have Takanashi Kiara. She didn't really grab me as much as the others did, but her stream wasn't bad by any means. Probably had the best taste in video games and anime out of all the girls. I like how much respect and admiration she has for Pekora and it was funny seeing Kiara's reaction when she started posting in chat. I'm looking forward to checking out everyone's future streams!
  21. Today is when the English Hololive vtubers are debuting. I'm glad I have the day off so I can catch all of their streams. 😁 As of typing this, Mori Calliope and Takanashi Kiara have already gone, but we still have three more debuts to go, plus the collab stream with all of them after that. Obviously it's too early to say which one's my favourite, but Mori-sama definitely captured my heart, especially after seeing her rap. 😍

     

     

    I really like her design and personality. The others have a lot to live up to, but I have high hopes them. Really looking forward to the other debuts. If anyone here is actually interested in checking them out, I'm putting links down below to their YouTube channels and Twitter accounts. If you're a normie, just ignore this. 😛

  22. So this is just an event for showing off games coming out in the launch window? That's cool and all, but I would like to see the UI and that side of things too. I guess there's not much hope of them talking about backwards compatibility here either.
  23. Does this have online co-op? Never played it before but I've heard good things.
  24. One of the most adorable clips I've ever seen. 🤗 If it doesn't load for whatever reason, this is the link: https://twitter.com/Alphabeticalxd/status/1303775031160442881 As for the English-speaking Hololive vtubers, the early favourites seem to be Ninomae Ina'nis and Gawr Gura. Those are the two I've seen the most fan art for anyway. 😛 Just based on design, I really like the shark girl, but they're all good. I'm looking forward to actually hearing them speak. It's pretty sweet to see the Japanese vtubers welcome the English ones. I saw Polka even sung Reach Out To The Truth for them. 😁 This makes me chuckle. 😄
  25. I don't think Sony is going to go any lower than that with the price, because from what I've heard, the PS5 is a more expensive machine to produce because of the more advanced SSD. I said it in a different thread, but I reckon the all-digital PS5 will match Xbox Series X's price of $499. The disc version will be $549. I don't see there being a $100 difference between the two SKU's like some people are saying. The removal of the disc drive won't save anywhere near that much money, and while it's true Sony would recover their losses through digital sales, they would still be taking a pretty big risk. I also think Sony want to avoid the $599 price tag after what happened with PS3. Obviously $599 back then isn't worth what it is now, but it would still be bad optics for them.
