  1. It makes me really sad seeing all the people who say they buy visual novels just to skip through them for the trophies. It makes me wonder how many people missed out on amazing experiences like Steins;Gate or House in Fata Morgana just because they skipped through it for the platinum. 😞 That's part of the reason I stopped caring so much about trophies. I don't want them to dictate what I play or how I play it.

      The problem with me personally is I would let them take over my head and I straight up would not play games if they were too hard, or didn't have trophies. Now that doesn't bother me, and I can play games like VNs without even worrying about trophies.

      I do have a bad habit of letting trophies dictate what I play, but I only play what I enjoy, & I never skip through the dialog in games unless I've already played it before (VN or otherwise).

       

      VN games have never been my favorite (I'd rather just watch anime), but Steins;Gate was definitely worth it. I've got a couple Danganronpa games in my backlog too, & something called Bad Apple Wars. :hmm:

      I've never managed to get into VN's, but I can sypathise. I don't understand why someone would buy a game to then not experience said game.

       

      I might look into some VN's in the future, if only for the sake of branching out.

      *sympathize, even.

  2. Here I am... wanting to play the game legit...
  3. I've had like no motivation to play games this week. It's too hot to think 😅

      Heat is my number one enemy in getting anything done, be it work or games. It just turns me into a lazy blob. x3 So I know what you mean. xD

  4. Finally finished Control. Aside from some bad frame drops (which don't bother me) and some garbage boss fights, I had a really good time. I really loved the setting and atmosphere, it was the perfect amount of creepiness. I got a PS Now sub for it and it was definitely worth it. I'm considering getting the DLC, but I think I want to play a different game before that.

      Now you've just got to fight Mr. Tomassi :P

       

      Godspeed!

      I think i saw someone talk about PS Now and DLCs recently. I think that conclusion was that DLCs will not work with anything you stream. If it's downloaded game it's fine. Anyway double check this cause i didn't care much since i don't have access to PS Now. 

  5. I'm fighting the plant boss in Control and it is possibly the worst thing I've ever seen. There's just so much going on that I can't concentrate on where to go. Sometimes, randomly it seems, mist starts spewing from the ground that does a ton of damage. So now I need to traverse a bunch of rocks while avoiding this thing's projectiles AND it's arm things smashing into me. Either I avoid the projectiles and fall into the mist cuz I can't see, or I avoid the mist and get hit by projectiles. It also summons enemies at low health, but when I die they sometimes don't despawn, so when I'm waiting for the boss to start they sneak up and do 90% damage. I also have to take a hike back to the arena every time I die, and I have to drop into a pit to get to it, and sometimes I don't hit X at the right time and lose 60% due to fall damage. I'm not having a fun time.

      The worst part about that boss was having to traverse all the way back there after a death. That “spend 5 minutes getting back to the place you died” was actually the worst part of the game. It was still a good experience overall, but better checkpoints would’ve helped out tremendously

       

      I think I ended up hiding behind a rock and launching things at the Mold boss for a minute before it died lol. Glad to hear you beat it though! If you haven’t beaten Tomassi though, you’re gonna have a rough time. He launches projectiles and has enemies spawned in attacking you, which includes those invisible things that jump you and take 80% of your health in a second. I wish you best of luck with that one

       

       

    3. Distant

      Exactly. At first I killed the enemies first to get them out of the way, but that took too long so I kept trying to run around them. Sometimes there were enemies that weren't there before and I'd get hit, so I'd have to kill them all anyway to get my health back. I'm having a lot of fun with the game, but that part just sucked, and yeah the checkpoints are pretty trash.

       

      Yeah that's exactly what I did. Just launch those bomb rocks until it died, hoping the mist wouldn't happen. I don't think I've seen him yet, but that sounds awful 😩 Can't wait for that 🙃

    4. ResoluteRock

      ResoluteRock

      I’d recommend saving him for last. Make sure you’ve got as many upgrades as possible and definitely focus on taking out the enemies before focusing on him because you will definitely get overwhelmed. I’d usually just throw something at him to distract him and then start shooting at enemies / throw things to kill them. The good news is the trek back to the boss fight is maybe 30 seconds instead of a few minutes if you do end up dying.

  6. Started playing Control a few hours ago. That game is way freakier than I thought it'd be. Something I don't really wanna be playing this late at night :P But it's really fun. I love playing with physics in games, so being able to launch stuff and destroy everything in my path is so satisfying to me. Can't say too much on the story yet, but the atmosphere and setting is really interesting so far. I love creepy stuff and "ghost story" type things, and this is giving me a similar vibe. I got it off PS Now, so I think it's well worth it so far. Can't wait to continue tomorrow.

      I agree. I wanted to play it but never knew what it was about. The story ended up pulling me in. Definitely creepy. I have been on a little bit of a horror kick. Played Don't knock twice (only had a couple jump scares) and now playing Here they Lie. It is really creepy. Has stuff that will mess with your head.

  7. Should I play FF13? I've seen so many radically different opinions on it- so many people hate it, so many people love it-that it's made me curious.

      That's the exact reason why I finally went into it. I ended up loving it in the end.

    3. Distant

      That's good to hear. I can get them pretty cheap from Gamestop, but I'm afraid of generic Gamestop cases, so I'm looking at other options. I'll probably pick them up sometime soon though.

      I'd buy it again if it was Remastered because I love it. I don't see a damn thing wrong with it. It's as good as any other FF if not better.

  8. I am so unbelievably hyped for this game. It was a good chunk of my childhood on PS2, and I can't wait to get the plat for it.
  9. How long is Control? I'm almost done FF7 so I'm thinking about getting PS Now to play it, hoping it's on the shorter side.

      Well, mate. I'm having much less time to play now, and finished Control in about a month. Didn't find it hard, except for some boss fights and the storyline is pretty straightforward,althoght confused. It will take you some 12 hs to beat and 20hs to platinum

  10. I posted about this yesterday, but there's a sale on the Square Enix site and I'm conflicted on what I wanna get. If you spend $75 you get free shipping, and I kinda want to spend that much anyway. So, my options are; either a Kingdom Hearts acrylic stand (I love those and will get this regardless)+ 9S figure + FF12, or the stand + Kingdom Hearts Cloud figure only since it's more expensive. I have more of a connection to 9S, but I think Cloud looks cooler, and idk if I'd actually play FF12 but it's only $10.

      There's a few other games I'd want to get there, but 12 for $10 is tempting. I'd probably get Cloud too, since 9S is cheaper elsewhere from what I've seen. About that, I actually didn't like 2B very much. I liked 9S as a character far more, so would rather get one of him. 😅

      That does sound pretty cheap. I don't think I've even seen it for the price I paid ($15) in quite some time. And that's fair. Lol. Dat ass is probably why I'd buy it. :P A2 might have been my favorite of the playable characters, though I didn't particularly dislike any. 

    4. Distant

      Distant

      You know, that's totally a fair point. Dang, now I have a fourth option 😆 I'd probably get A2 too, but she's more expensive for whatever reason.

  11. Anyone have any opinions on Dragon Quest Builders 2? It's on sale on the Square Enix Store for $20 and I thought that didn't seem too bad.

      Would you consider purchasing elsewhere for cheaper? That is if you are paying shipping, which I think is $5.99 atm for standard. So basically you are paying 25.99+tax

    3. Distant

      Distant

      Yeah, shipping is pretty awful. It's $11.99. But I was considering getting either a figure or a bunch of games to get free shipping. Still need to decide which :P

    4. NERVergoproxy

      NERVergoproxy

      Oh wow, that's even worse than I thought. 12$ is crazy for standard.

  12. One of my dogs hasn't been doing well for a while, and we're taking him to the vet tomorrow. I'm fearing the worst, that this is the last night I'll be able to see him. I've never had to deal with something like this before, and I don't know what I'll do...

      Be strong man. I've lost more than a couple of mascots over the years, both cats and dogs, due to a number of reasons I won't go into. I remember the first time was the one that hurt me the most, and it was a dog that wasn't even mine. Go figure... Later deads affected me as well, but I guess you could say I eventually got used to it. Not a good thing, of course, but that's what happens here.

       

      Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that, let's hope that vet visit goes well tomorrow. In case it doesn't go well and the worst comes to happen, everything will be all right. It'll be tough to accept at first and you'll most likely cry, but that's the way life goes. Sometimes we have to tough it up and accept that those we love won't be anymore with us.

       

      Cheers. :)

      Losing a pet sucks, not gonna lie. I've been through it more times than I can count. Of course, the one back in October probably hit me the hardest. Largely due to how long I'd had that cat (over 15 years). Cats before him just never seemed to last that long. 3-4 years at the most. Hope everything works out, and you don't have to say goodbye.

  15. Why are PC games such a big deal? All those fake PC listings for PS4 games makes me wonder why everyone's so huge on PC. I've always wondered about this, and I always assumed it was because games look slightly better on PC. Idk, I've never really cared about that. I always cared about the games themselves more than how they look. Never thought it was worth an expensive PC just for better graphics/framerate.

      Most PC gamers I know brag incessantly about their rigs and then only play Minecraft/ League of Legends 😆

    2. Nighcisama

      I play on both, though much more on Ps4. It is not just that the graphics and performance can be a hell of a lot better if you invest money, a really big deal for some of the games is the potential of a game unlocked by modding communities that put many actual game developers to shame. Also some people might invest a bit more money into a pc, then pirate most of their games to make up for that financially.

       

      Exclusives are of course a big reason to get at least one console, but PC has a hell of a lot more exclusives, especially in genres that are underreperented on consoles, like strategy games for example. Most people have a pc at home anyway for various other things, so it makes sense to play the occasional game on it as well.

       

      Honestly if all Playstation exclusives would come to Pc, I doubt I would stick with the console, which is why putting high profiles like Horizon Zero Dawn on PC is a double edged sword long term. Emulators enabling the use of older generations of console games is not really a big deal, but current exclusives are the one big upside consoles have over PC.

      I can't imagine playing a competitive FPS game on console with a controller. RTS games are also far superior on PC. Those two reasons are why I always have a gaming PC at home. Not gonna lie either, framerate is important to me. Going from 144 or even 60fps to 30fps is a huge difference in enjoyment and immersion and is honestly the improvement I'm looking forward to the most with the PS5 release.

       

      I mainly have a console due to exclusives, trophies and having a blu-ray/Netflix/HBO player. It's also nice to not feel connected in the same way as you do on PC, if that makes sense. There's no internet browser or discord distracting me. I'm just chilling on my couch playing some nice games without being bothered by people acknowledging my existence.
