Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Still playing Doom Eternal. Man this game is good. Finished the campaign on Nightmare, going straight back in for an extra life mode playthrough in preparation for attempting an Ultra Nightmare run (One life, permadeath). Also cleared the two master levels on Nightmare last night. Easily the most f...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been playing FF7R and... I just don't really like this one. It feels like a cheap imitation of the real thing. It's not a *bad* game by any means, but it's very different from the original. And more specifically... It's a lot dumber, and a lot louder. In order to pad out the run time and justif...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I kinda hate that controller, aesthetically. Like, I'm sure it works great, but it looks like a cheap sneaker. (Sneakers = Trainers)

I seriously hope they have different colour variants out the gate by the time I wanna buy a PS5.

Final Fantasy VII remake which so far, I really love. I've played past the demo point now, and its just great.
Is the demo the start of the game? Like can I start that and resume with the disc when it drops?

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I’ve been playing a *lot* of Apex this last month. It seems to have finally clicked with me and I’m winning far more games than I did in the previous entire year... If you play on PS4, feel free to add me - PyramidHeadcrab on PSN. Anyone else can add me if they want. :P My best characters are Watts...

Why on Earth would one pre-order digitally in a world where Cooking Mama: Cookstar exists (or rather, doesn't)?

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I lost my job yesterday partially due to the 'rona, so I'm going through my games collection and doing a bit of a purge - mostly stuff that's either been sitting on the backlog forever, or games that sell for a lot that I didn't like enough to put on my Top 100. That'll ensure I have the funds neede...

Re: Dualshock 4 Question

I may be wrong, but I think all black ones may have the textured buttons. The crystal one I got yesterday also has the slightly textured D-Pad buttons, but it also uses the same black buttons as the black controller, not the brownish ones of the green camo one. I don't think the different coloration...

Re: Dualshock 4 Question

Thanks for checking. I am guessing (given there are different generations and circuit board revisions within each model number) that the controller bundled with the Pro console is not the same V2 that you can buy separately. This is quite frustrating and I feel like even more of an idiot that it go...

Re: Dualshock 4 Question

I can confirm that the DS4 that came with my Pro DOES indeed have a bit of a flocked texture to it, where my green camo one has smooth glossy plastic. But here's the kicker...

Green Camo - CUH-ZCT2U
Black Pro - CUH-ZCT2U

So uh... who knows?

The screen connectors in particular are just... No bueno. I haven't gotten them to work properly since taking it apart. Do you mean the ribbon gates ??

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I was surprised at how complex it was in there, really. First there's the battery (which I took the opportunity to replace iirc), then there's the massive touchpad and all the smaller contacts and other elements... Packed like sardines, the lot of them. :lol: Yeah, it's to be expected I suppose wit...

Re: Gaming firsts /most influential games

The first games I remember owning on a console were Sonic The Hedgehog and Thunder Force II. I still like platformers and shmups. I know I had edutainment games too, before or around that time. Bunch of Magic School Bus games and Putt-Putt Goes To The Moon.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Suits, you got any tips for fixing a PS4 controller? The left stick has a weird dead zone. I thought Doom Eternal was staggering my walk for texture loading, or that Apex had a bug where I would stop running for no reason... Turns out it just drops inputs near the top of the stick. Was gonna get ano...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Anyone know if Xenoblade Definitive rebalances the game at all? Because I know the original had some ludicrous grind walls to bash your head against if you neglected the (awful) sidequests. Last Recode massively improved .hack//GU by rebalancing that game, so I hope Xenoblade does similarly.

I'mma chime in and say art is subjective in the absolute. If you wanna meticulously trace the origins of gaming and hold reverance for all the stops along the way to a destination you presently like, good on you. If you're someone whose first console was a GameCube, and you're unconcerned with anyth...

I picked up Freedom Planet for a few minutes because it also happened to be on my WiiU... Instantly remembered why I Loved that game. Went to try DKC Tropical Freeze again right after... It just doesn't do *anything* for me. Kudos to folks who like it, but I'm just not digging this one. I re-bought ...

Re: Games Completed 2020

#7 - Doom Eternal I went back and tried the final boss again, and I beat it pretty easily. I think I was just exhausted on Sunday -- I had been playing for 7 hours straight by that point. To give a very brief review... Good game. Very good game. A small step up from Doom 2016. It had a handful of is...
