  1. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    So, I was looking through my PSVita library because I'm still searching for a game that I can focus on aside from Apex Legends and Crypt of the Necrodancer (the game's fucking me up...I cannot, for the life of me, finish even one zone with a particular character; normal time, can't miss a bit or you're dead, weapons don't spawn) and found out that I bought Steam World Dig 2 last December. Decided to give it a go... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand... It's awesome Very fun mechanics. Think I found that one game I've been looking for.

    With our defense right now a 2-0 win for Liverpool wouldn't be that bad Really hope we can score at least one away goal. At home there's always room for a comeback.
  3. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Well, I disagree. Anyway, just happy the devs are back with a new game. Gonna be interesting to see how they handle an RPG.
  4. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    I agree it's not for everyone but it definitely isn't shit. Well, maybe subjectively; but objectively it's pretty darn good. Impeccable gameplay.

    The developers of Furi (the game that nobody here played...I hate you all...go buy Crypt of the Necrodancer) are back. From the first second I knew that this is Danger. Glad to have him back on a game. His tracks in Furi (and his music in general) are amazing.

    Well, I'm not a big fan of Metroidvanias but some of them I do enjoy. Chasm, however, I wouldn't touch again with a stick. I'd say it's mediocre at best. For Metroidvania enthusiasts it could be a good choice, though.
  7. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    I deleted it. Good God, this is some bad game design. I can get behind some backtracking in Metroidvanias but Chasm is just annoying. Even the shortcuts don't help alleviate the tedium of it. You have to go to a specific room, enter a portal to reach a different version of that room, then leave that room through a door (which you have to remember where it leads, because there is no indication anywhere) and then you are still a million miles away of where you have to go because there aren't even a lot of shortcuts to begin with.

    Probably won't be able to watch Liverpool - Bayern Munich tonight. But to be honest...with our recent performance I expect a loss. Not sure how Liverpool's doing these days but we aren't anywhere near our standard. We may have won the last few games but it's always been close.

    Doesn't matter that Sony's first party support for the PSVita has been horrendous (i.e. pretty much non-existent), the handheld will always be my favourite gaming device (until a PSVita 2 will be released...so...). I remember ordering one two months after its European release (which was 7 years ago!). Played Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Motor Storm RC, Escape Plan and Wipeout 2048. I never actually finished those games (I simply wasn't feeling them) and traded the physical ones in pretty soon. For a while I didn't use the Vita. Until the Indie Scene started to pick up the support that Sony dropped. And it was amazing. So many great games got to see a release on the handheld...pure bliss for me. Especially with all the rogue-likes coming out There are so many gems on the system that (while admittedly also available on other platforms) felt weirdly at home on the device. Spelunky Darkest Dungeon Downwell FEZ Axiom Verge Shovel Knight Hotline Miami 1 and 2 ... Just a few examples. And don't get me started on the JRPGs. There are quite a lot I still have to play. It's a shame that the PSVita didn't sell well and in turn made Sony drop out of the handheld market probably forever. It's such a wonderful device. Aside from the terrible sticks (that you get used to after a while, though) and the touchscreen on the back its design is top-notch. It feels great to hold (although, experiences may vary with these kinds of things), touch screen (front) is a neat little addition (a little underused in games, sadly) and the buttons...my goodness are they good. Probably the best D-Pad I've ever used and that "click" when pressing a button...lovely A while ago I decided to hack my PSVita to have my SNES and GB(A) collection readily available via emulation (yes, not entirely legal - I think - but I do own all the games I have on my Vita). Didn't know what a gold mine would open up. There are so many plug-ins available, it's unreal. overclocking is possible - makes for smoother gameplay with some games an easy way to capture screenshots change resolution for certain games battery percentage indicator (why Sony never implemented this themselves, I will never understand) easy way to switch between accounts (no need to format the memory card every time) and most importantly: SD2Vita - being able to use a microSD card instead of the ultra expensive official cards is incredible I won't use any of the plugins/programs that are used to acquire games illegally, though. Never have, and never will. I love my Vita

    Guys, GUYS. I know something. But I'm not telling. Like, comment, subscribe, send nudes.
  11. Metro Exodus (PS4/XBO/PC)

    @Fierce_LiNk rejoice : peace:
  12. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Then just plug them in every time you stop playing The few steps to the console are hardly exhausting (hopefully ).
  13. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    I feel the same about other controllers It's interesting how experiences differ so much. By the way, if you ever want to use light, loose and flimsy analogue sticks...try a Vita. As much as I love the handheld, its sticks are horrible.
  14. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    I don't like that much if the left stick is positioned higher on a controller, so I don't see the issue Again, to each his own
  15. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    It's actually 8 hours, though I will never understand why battery life is such an issue for some. Pretty sure that every gamer has a micro-USB cable. Just plug it in whenever you're not playing. And even if you have monster gaming session...just charge it while playing There is no way I'd ever run out of battery life with any controller for a home console. Never happened to me and never will (unless there will be a controller with only a max of 5 hours battery life, of course). Same. They can get rid of the light bar and touchscreen but other than that they don't need to change anything. @bob You know what they say about people with large hands. ... ... They need larger controllers. But it's a fair point. I have a huge penis, I mean, I have relatively small hands so the DS4 is fine for me.
  16. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    It's always been the most comfortable for me Each to his own, I guess.
  17. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Why? For me, the DS4 is the best controller out there.
  18. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Thanks @Tales for the trophy By the way, this is what happens when someone plays a game with you:
  19. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Same. However, speed runs can be fun if I reeeeaaally enjoy the game. What I also don't like: Missable trophies. Especially in (J)RPGs. If a game takes 50 hours to complete and you miss one collectible that you can't get after a certain point...FUCK YOU Thankfully I'm not really after Platinums anymore. Only if I thoroughly enjoy a game. Examples right now would be Far Cry New Dawn and Crypt of the Necrodancer. The latter, however...probably impossible for me but I'll try. Anyway, speaking of Far Cry New Dawn. I didn't know that...
  20. I still hate it How could I forget that
  21. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    If I see you online, I'll invite you to a coop session. I'll probably only have time for the 3 expeditions.
  22. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Really enjoying Far Cry New Dawn. Haven't played much but I love scavenging, crafting and exploring. Playing on the highest difficulty which makes for some pretty intense battles. Preparation (i.e. recon) is key. @Tales you're playing this, too, aren't you? Would you be up for getting the co-op trophy out of the way sometime? I think it's just a matter of completing three expeditions with a co-op partner.
  23. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Going to trade in Black Ops 4 for Far Cry New Dawn today. I'm in the mood for a single player shooter and the game seems right up my alley. Haven't played Far Cry 5 so I'm not bothered by the reimagined map. Apex Legends is all I need for my multiplayer fix so it seems like a good idea to trade in CoD
