  1. I don't know about the example given from the OP, but next gen pricing in general is just ridiculous. I can only speak about the UK, but PS4 games typically sell for £50 at launch, maybe £55 *tops* which is already pushing it as far as I'm concerned. Now they expect us to pay £70 for PS5 games!? Yeah, get stuffed... No way in hell I'm paying that much for a game which probably still has microtransactions, a season pass, etc. I'll just stick with my backlog until these games drop to a reasonable price, thanks.
  2. So Gura just became the first Hololive vtuber to reach a million YouTube subscribers. Pretty incredible, especially since it's only been a little over a month since her debut. Aww, she's so humble. Doesn't believe it's real until she sees it herself. 😄 I enjoyed this little Twitter interaction involving Xbox (who now own id Software).
  3. I wouldn't even say I've been procrastinating when it comes to my PS3 backlog - I just got the console really late compared to a lot of others. I've been steadily working on my PS3 backlog since I got the console at the tail end of 2013. I think I'm at the point now where being done with it sometime next year is absolutely doable. May as well sign up for this to help keep track of my progress. This is what my PS3 backlog looks like anyway. Games I've started but haven't completed yet: Star Ocean: The Last Hope International (85%) Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist (38%) Puppeteer (35%) Games I haven't started: Dead Space Ignition Dead Space Extraction Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles Ranko's Tsukigime's Longest Day Battle Princess of Arcadias The Saboteur Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath Castevania: Lords of Shadow Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Deus Ex: Human Revolution Killzone
  4. So the new DOOM Eternal DLC has a reference to Korone in it. 😄 https://www.sankakucomplex.com/2020/10/22/hololive-virtual-youtuber-inugami-korone-reference-featured-in-doom-eternal-dlc/ Also, I'm just gonna leave this here. Very accurate I must say. 😛
  5. I think you misread what I posted. I know PT wouldn't have been tested by Sony. The point was that if only 10 games out of the thousands that were tested don't work, there's a very high chance PT will work on the PS5.
  6. That statement by Konami doesn't confirm anything, they're just saying the game isn't available to download anymore. You can transfer games already downloaded on your PS4 to the PS5 via a LAN cable, so the only way we'll know if PT is actually compatible or not is when somebody tests it. According to Sony, there are only 10 PS4 games incompatible with the PS5, so the chances are pretty high that it'll work.
  7. I hadn't considered that, but considering the absolute state of Sony these days, I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.
  8. Yeah, and I think it's the same with paid themes too. There's a thread about it here: If themes are going to be a thing on PS5, there's a good chance those will be given out as trophy rewards too.
  9. I assume this feature will be available to every developer, but it's hard to say how much it will be utilized outside of first-party titles. Still, it's a cool idea. I'm one of those people who never gets emails for the trophy rewards on PS4, so it's nice that they'll be credited to your account automatically on PS5. As far as I know, they stopped selling individual avatars on the PS store a while back, so it looks like this is the reason why. Also, since profile banners are one of the rewards, it seems like you won't be able to set it to whatever screenshot you want like you could on PS4. Sounds like a step back, but I like the idea of earning a difficult trophy that rewards a banner, which you can then show off on your profile.
  10. With the PS5 releasing in under a month now and Sony set to continue their crusade against Japanese developers and their games into the next generation, I've gone ahead and updated the thread to include PS5 games. Feel free to post about games releasing on that platform and I'll add them to the list. We actually got confirmation of a PS5 game that's going to be censored a while back now, but it slipped me by. Following Little Devil Inside's showing at PS5's 'The Future of Gaming' presentation earlier this year, the developers received backlash on social media about one of the enemy design's for being a "racist stereotype". Not long after, the developer issued a statement and pledged to change the design. https://nichegamer.com/2020/06/14/neostream-censor-little-devil-insides-tribal-enemies-racist-stereotypes-were-absolutely-not-intended/
  11. What is the purpose of this thread? If you're anything like me, I want to know if a game has been censored in some way before I buy it so I can make an informed purchasing decision about whether or not it's a product worth supporting. I think this is especially important in a time when Sony have implemented a censorship policy that aggressively targets Japanese developed games that don't meet their western standards (the PlayStation HQ is located in California). I've created this thread in order to compile a list of these censored games with information on how they've been changed, be it for political reasons, demands made by the platform holder, etc. When possible, I will include alternate ways of buying/playing versions of these games that haven't been affected by censorship. I will do my best to keep the thread updated with information I come across, but I'll also be counting on you guys to help out because some things might slip under my radar. The idea is that you'll be able to look through this opening post to find both older games and upcoming ones to see if and how it has been affected. If you're on PC and don't want to look through the entire post, you can use CTRL + F to bring up a search box and type the name of the game you're looking for to see if it has been mentioned. Will all examples of censorship be included on this list? Ideally it would, but video game censorship is very common in places like the Middle East, China, etc, and it's practically impossible for me to know about every example that happens across the globe. I will add examples that are brought to my attention, but I want this thread to primarily focus on the information that will be relevant to the mostly Western English-speaking visitors of this site. Also, there might be times where something is brought to my attention either via this thread or through PM's and it's not entirely clear if it's actually censorship. When this happens, I will make a decision about whether or not to put it on the list at the time, but I will give others the opportunity to voice their opinions on the matter if they happen to be more knowledgeable than me on the subject. Why not include other consoles/handhelds in this list? First and foremost, I wanted to create a thread that would be relevant to the people who visit this site. While it would be interesting to list historical examples of censorship in games or the censorship that goes on elsewhere, it wouldn't really help in the purpose I stated above of informing people before they make a purchase. Secondly, the PS5, PS4, and Vita are all platforms that have been affected by Sony's Censorship Policy which was introduced back in 2018. That censorship policy was the impetus behind creating this thread, and thus, the focus should be on Sony platforms. How do I contribute to this list? It's simple really. Just put the name of the game in your post along with some form of proof. Assuming the developers haven't made a statement regarding the censorship themselves, other examples of "proof" would be something like an article/forum post/YouTube video that details the censorship in question (screenshot comparisons, translation differences, etc). So long as what you've posted will be able to inform somebody not familiar with the game about the changes, that will be fine. The more information you can provide the better. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ 2013 The Walking Dead Season 1 (PS4/Vita) - Toned down gore Source: Censored Gaming Region: JP Uncensored Alternative: NA, EU The Walking Dead Season 2 (PS4/Vita) - Toned down gore Source: Censored Gaming Region: JP Uncensored Alternative: NA, EU 2014 The Last of Us Remastered (PS4) - Dismemberment is removed from multiplayer (Europe), gore toned down and cutscene camera angle changed (Japan) Source: Censored Gaming Region: EU, JP Uncensored Alternative: NA South Park: The Stick of Truth (PS4) - Entire scenes blocked out, described instead of shown Source: Censored Gaming Region: EU, AU Uncensored Alternative: NA (all platforms), PC Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (PS4) - Toned down gore Source: Censored Gaming Region: JP Uncensored Alternative: NA, EU Monster Monpiece (Vita) - Replaced card images with "less exposed" versions Source: Siliconera Region: NA, EU Uncensored Alternative: JP, PC 2015 Criminal Girls: Invite Only (Vita) - Removed dialogue during Motivation scenes and girls covered with fog, banned in New Zealand Source: Niche Gamer | Wikipedia's List of Banned Video Games Region: NA, EU Uncensored Alternative: JP, PC (via modding) The Order 1886 (PS4) - Nudity removed Source: Movie-Censorship Region: JP Uncensored Alternative: NA, EU Final Fantasy Type-0 HD (PS4) - Removed/toned down some revealing outfits Source: GameFAQs | PSP Video Region: Worldwide Uncensored Alternative: Original PSP game The Witcher 3 (PS4) - Removed nudity Source: TechRaptor Region: JP Uncensored Alternative: NA, EU Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number (PS4/Vita) - Outright banned in Australia Source: Refused-Classification Region: Australia Uncensored Alternative: NA, EU Saints Row IV: Re-elected (PS4) - Mission cut and blur filter applied to "Rectifier" weapon in Australia, outright banned in Saudi Arabia Source: Movie-Censorship | Eurogamer | VGR Region: Australia, Saudi Arabia Uncensored Alternative: NA, EU Dungeon Travelers 2 (Vita) - Toned down "sexualised" CG images Source: Rice Digital | Screenshot Comparisons Region: NA, EU Uncensored Alternative: JP Until Dawn (PS4) - Toned down gore Source: CinemaBlend Region: JP Uncensored Alternative: NA, EU Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (PS4) - Toned down gore Source: Censored Gaming Region: JP Uncensored Alternative: NA, EU Yu-Gi-Oh!

  12. I always see people talk about trophy hunting and "playing for fun" as if they're mutually exclusive. If that's how you see it, then maybe you weren't cut out for trophy hunting in the first place. I get my enjoyment *from* trophy hunting. It's incredibly satisfying. These days, I find that I quickly lose interest in a game without that allure of trophies/achievements. I have a Switch, but it's something I play casually, primarily due to the lack of a metagame.
  13. It's in the video at around 10:15. You can see it briefly as they scroll past the trophy cards.
  14. I haven't seen this mentioned yet, but it looks like some trophies on PS5 are going to reward you with avatars and banners when you earn them. Maybe some other stuff too.
  15. [Star Ocean: The Last Hope International] It's been a while since my last update on this game. I've been making pretty consistent progress since then and I'm now just above the 500 hour mark. Today I managed to get a whopping 3 trophies in this game that were for obtaining 90% of all the battle trophies, fully completing the item creation list, and collecting 100% of all the weapon data. I'm practically done with the Wandering Dungeon now besides a bit of cleanup when it comes to the character specific -ology drops. It's a good thing too because making it all the way up to the Ethereal Queen on the 20th floor is quite nerve-wracking since the game has a tendency to crash in that dungeon. I've probably lost dozens of hours to crashes at this point which can be pretty disheartening, but I soldier on regardless. I'm not letting anything stop me get this plat.

    If anyone's curious, this is how the BT situation is looking:
    Edge - 96%
    Reimi - 100%

    Faize - 33%

    Lymle - 99%
    Bacchus - 100%
    Meracle - 98%
    Sarah - 97%
    Myuria - 96%
    Arumat - 94%

    Faize's BT's are going to get done next playthrough which is why that one is much lower than the others. I'm essentially done with Edge's BT's until next playthrough as well because they should come naturally when I grind out his 30,000 kills with a turbo controller. So by my count, I just need to get 14 more BT's until I move onto the next stage of this epic quest. The end of this playthrough is in sight. I can feel it! 😁

      @Honor_Hand Ah, that one. Yeah, the Grigori are bosses and you only encounter 6 of them through the course of the main story. However, there is a bonus dungeon you unlock late in the game which has 3 more Grigori and you can endlessly respawn them by defeating the last boss in that dungeon. It'll be quite the grind, but it's nothing I'm not used to. It can be done on a single playthrough.

      @Undead Wolf That's in the Wandering Dungeon, right? The one that has like 20 randomly generated floors? I seem to recall some of the Grigori appearing there sometimes. I only went through that dungeon a few times so I don't know if the Grigori that spawn there are always the same, but hey, it sounds like you can grind that battle trophy there. It's gooing to be quite the long grind, though. Best of luck, man. Really looking forward to you obtaining the Platinum on this one. :)

      @Honor_Hand There are actually two bonus dungeons. While there are Grigori in the Wandering Dungeon, it's much easier to farm the Grigori kills in the Cave of the Seven Stars. The floors are fixed in that one and you can skip around after to whatever floor you want after you get through it once. Thank you for the good luck wishes. 😁

  16. I got the new Robotics;Notes Double Pack, plus a copy of Alien: Isolation which I intend on playing soon. The latter was a 2nd hand copy and I was surprised to find that the DLC code inside still worked.
  17. I'm not really a fan of the activity card thing it has. Like I appreciate how you can view different levels and the progress made in them right from the UI, but it looks kind of cluttered/unorganised with how it shoves all this other stuff in there like official news, screenshots, etc. I do like that you're given time estimates for levels and you can view official hints when going after bonus objectives (weirdly locked behind the PS+ paywall), but I have my doubts about third party developers actually making use of it. I think the home screen itself is really slick-looking and I find it strange that they didn't show this right at the start. It's nice that they're separating Games and Media into two different tabs so I don't have to even look at that stuff going forward. On PS4, I just shoved all that stuff into a folder to get it out of the way. It's kind of funny that the PS5 has a Picture-in-Picture mode similar to the Snap feature Xbox One used to have (they eventually removed it). I don't see myself using it.
  18. It sounds like you will only see improvements to PS4 games when running on the PS5 by using the Game Boost and it's still not clear to me whether or not we'll be able to enable that ourselves yet. Either way, Microsoft are still way ahead when it comes to BC with their much larger library going back to the original Xbox, HDR implementation, and the ability for their BC team to double the frame rate without needing the developers themselves to create a patch.
  19. In what way? I watched the video and they showed off the faster loading, the better resolution of DOOM Eternal, improved frame rate of Monster Hunter World, etc. You can also disable HDR if you don't think it's implemented very well on older titles. Seems like an improvement all-round.
  20. Xbox is so far ahead of PlayStation when it comes to backwards compatibility. https://www.gematsu.com/2020/10/xbox-series-backward-compatibility-detailed-auto-hdr-higher-frame-rates-and-enhanced-visuals-on-select-titles This part specifically seems like a response to Sony's half-assed effort: So while only select PS4 titles running on PS5 are going to see improvements, every BC title running on Xbox Series X/S will benefit in some way. They even have the ability to add HDR into these old games at the hardware level and double frame rates from 30fps to 60fps. Oh, and original Xbox/Xbox 360 titles are not only playable, but they get a massive bump in resolution too. Really puts Sony to shame.
  21. #329 - Musynx Almighty Collect All Available Trophies. I've played quite a few rhythm games at this point, but they've all been in the Project Diva kind of style with the button prompts going across the screen. I had quite a difficult time adjusting to the gameplay in this one - it was like re-learning how to play the genre all over again. I eventually got the hang of it though, at least the 4 button mode. When I got to the point of playing with 6 buttons, it broke my brain all over again, so I decided to just let those songs autoplay since you only *need* to get good scores on one mode/difficulty for the plat. This game has a large number of songs (like 90+), but there were only a handful I thought were really good and fun to play. The vast majority of them ranged from "meh" to "decent". This is one of the weaker rhythm games I've played and I didn't really enjoy the trophy hunt, but there was some fun to be had. #330 - MediEvil Savior of Gallowmere Unlock all trophies. I never played the original PS1 game, but I was very pleased with this remake. I mean there was some wonkiness with the platforming and the camera sometimes, but it was a solid effort overall. This just game oozes charm, thanks in large part to Sir Daniel Fortesque and the interactions he has with the other characters. The devs had a good sense of humour. The game was fairly tough, at least until you get some of the better weapons and health upgrades. I died quite a lot. Really enjoyed my time with the game and the trophy hunt was pretty straight-forward but still satisfying. Hopefully they remake the 2nd game eventually because I hear it's even better.
  22. It's not really "new" at this point since it has been going on for years. The people in this thread talking about how they don't know what censorship the OP is referring to clearly aren't into Japanese games, or at least don't follow the news about them closely. The censorship policy Sony implemented back in 2018 exclusively targets Japanese developers and their games. It's quite disappointing to see people dismiss this issue just because it doesn't affect the games they play. You don't have to be into these anime-style games with fanservice to call out bullshit when you see it. There's no reason why these games shouldn't be allowed on the platform when even Nintendo are fine with it and the ratings boards have no objection to them either. Let grown ass adults play what they want.
  23. #328 - The Sinking City All Evidence Collected Complete every challenge the city of Oakmont has to offer. This game isn't anything amazing, but I wasn't expecting it to be. I enjoyed my time with it even if I found the gameplay loop a little repetitive towards the end. I liked that the game was split up into individual cases with their own little conclusions at the end that are different based on choices made earlier. The setting was pretty cool, taking place in a city in the middle of nowhere that (as the name implies) has large sections of it flooded. I don't have much experience with H. P. Lovecraft inspired fiction, but this game definitely got me more interested in that stuff.
  24. From the sounds of it, that will only be the case for games that support this "Game Boost". I'm sure God of War will since it's huge a first party title, but what about lesser known titles? I'm under the impression that most PS4 games will run in a PS4/PS4 Pro compatibility mode on the PS5 that just emulate the specs of that hardware, and in that case, I don't see how we would see performance benefits.
  25. Nice. I suspected Ghost of Tsushima would see a 60fps option on the PS5 which is the main reason I've held off playing it. Hopefully some other PS4 first party titles will see this treatment.
