I love everything Nintendo, but also enjoy gaming on other consoles. My first game was Mega Man 3, and some recent Ninty favorites include Pikmin 3, Fire Emblem Awakening, DKC Tropical Freeze and Zelda Link Between Worlds. I own a Wii U, PS4, X1, 3DS and Vita. And of course, a Gamecube and Wii.

So it has a solo mode, that I heard. The one question I still need answered though, is does the game require a connection to their servers nonetheless? If it's TRULY got offline single player, I might be interested. More than might, I would be interested.

JaxonH commented on PS Vita App Near Will Cease Searching for Game...:

Well, it's a wrap. They already pulled the plug on 1st party games, now they're pulling the plug on the apps, most 3rd parties have already pulled the plug on support... the curtains are closing and it's time to go home.

I got 3 years from my Vita, so basically half a lifespan. I really don't play it any more, which is a shame because I really do like it. In fact I just invested in upgrading from a 32gb to a 64gb mem card (even to the end they just wouldn't lower those dang memory card prices to a reasonable level). I'll continue to take advantage of indies and cross buy when I can, since I doubt it will be getting anything more than that after RE Revelations 2.

I used NEAR from time to time- there's actually quite a few Vita owners in my vicinity. My brother lives close by, and I'd always see when he got a new game I had. Of course, NEAR was a very clunky app and a shoddy rip of Streetpass, so it's not really a huge loss, but losing Youtube sucks. Just hope they don't pull Netflix (I'm thinking they won't, even the original Wii still has a working Netflix app).

Ok, this is one game I would get on my knees and beg for a port to come to PS4. Come on guys, half the known PS3 library is being ported, all I'm asking for is this one game. Bring this and I'll never complain about a port again, you have my word!

Everything's going "free-to-play online-only". Especially when it comes to Capcom (and episodic releases). No thanks, no thanks and no thanks. If it weren't for Monster Hunter, Capcom, if it weren't for Monster Hunter... Although even THAT you've turned into free-to-play online-only in Japan.

JaxonH commented on Can You Relate to Any of These PlayStation Mem...:

Well, this is actually an NES memory but it's a fond gaming memory nonetheless- that video still shows someone pushing buttons like a control cabinet- that was totally me when I played Super Mario Bros for the first time at the age of 7 lol. I sat the controller in my lap and "point-pushed" the buttons to run and jump- I cried when I couldn't make it over the pit :)

My fondest PS memory was long nights of local multiplayer in EA Sports NHL 03 (or something like that) on the PS2. I used to love my hockey games...

@goonow
It may be a mini PS3 now, but the idea is for it to have it's own games. So that it stands apart from PS3, PS4 and any other system.

If it had it's own games, and they were good, wouldn't you be playing it? I mean, nobody is ever done playing great games, no matter where you find them. This gen, last gen, whatever. Fun games are fun games.

I pretty much own everything there is worth buying on PS4 and Vita. I just ordered a new 64gb mem card for Vita since my 32gb was spent, and would love to fill it up, but I'm running out of games to buy. They need to add PSone and PS2 classics to PS4, preferably for less than $15 each (evidently that's what FFVII will cost, PS4's first PSone Classic).

Some great indie games coming in the future, unfortunately that does me no good for this sale :/

Such an under appreciated genre. I am greatful for the games we've seen recently though- DMC, Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2 and the upcoming Scalebound... it would suck to play in a world without games like these.

Ah, finally, a port I can get behind!

Quit playing the Vita version due to the wonky rear touchpad controls, but with cross save I can just keep on playing! This is like the first time cross save actually benefits me.

JaxonH commented on What Actually Comes with Dark Souls II: Schola...:

Only thing I hate is the "no pause" feature. That's just a backwards mechanic any way you slice it. I appreciate challenge and difficulty, and most definitely appreciate games that require skill. But stripping out the pause feature just to increase difficulty only serves to increase frustration. Sometimes I gotta run to the bathroom, or eat dinner, or whatever. Hopefully the PS button will still work as a system level pause- I can't imagine it wouldn't.

I'm giving this game a go after much recommendation from my brother. Still not convinced this is my kind of game though. I'm much more of a Monster Hunter kind of guy when it comes to deep, challenging games.

Finished Dragon Age Inquisition after a good, solid 80+ hours.

Wii U: Fire Emblem (GBA)

And I'm so totally sucked back into Fire Emblem again! Then, I saw the new trailer for the next Fire Emblem on 3DS, and I spazzed a fit it looked so good lol.

But time has come to a standstill for ol' JaxonH, because the almighty Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate demo has dropped. There is nothing else- only Monster Hunter.

I've killed three so far. Hinterlands, Exalted Plains, and final boss.

80+ hours in, but I think I'm done with this game because today the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate demo released, that game is so freaking sick. And I'm so freaking hooked.

Japan's a tough market for home consoles any way you slice it. None of the consoles are doing well there. It's just a handheld loving region. When Vita outsells the PS4, you know you're not in Kansas anymore ;)

I upgraded to a 2tb internal drive months ago. Had a 2.5" 11mm external for just $90. Took it out the case, upgraded, then put the 500gb from the PS4 back in the case and use it for my Xbox One. Killed two birds with one stone, and for just $45 per console.

JaxonH commented on PlayStation Now's All-You-Can-Play Subscriptio...:

Biggest problem for me is the lag. I have an extremely high connection speed yet games still lag quite a bit. Even a little is enough to drive a person crazy. It's a good start, but they're gonna have to fix all of the lag before I consider paying money. That's why I don't use remote play with Vita, and this lags worse than that.

JaxonH commented on Game of the Year: These Are Your Favourite PS4...:

Just goes to show the influence marketing has. The "favorite games" are always those which were advertised the most.

Dragon Age Inquisition, there is no justice for you lol.. But that's the way it always goes. You poll Nintendo gamers their favorite picks they'll tell you "Mario Kart 8 and Smash" when in reality DKC Tropical Freeze and Bayonetta 2 crap all over both those games.

Marketing influences popularity. Big time.

JaxonH commented on Poll: What Was Your Favourite PlayStation Game...:

@rjejr DKC Tropical Freeze is eternal. Forever the greatest that ever was.

And ya, 2015 is gonna be no holds barred. Batman Arkham Knight and Witcher 3, to FFXV and Uncharted 4, to Zelda U and Xenoblade X, to Code Name Steam and Monster Hunter 4, to Halo 5 and Scalebound... We're talking legendary status here. One for the history books junior :)

JaxonH commented on Poll: What Was Your Favourite PlayStation Game...:

Oh dear. I liked Infamous Second Son as much as the next guy, but it's not even a shred of the game Dragon Age Inquisition is. Infamous is a good, solid B-tier game. And a fine one at that. But Dragon Age is a giant- an incredible, triumphant, top-tier AAA game, and one of the finest I've played in the last 10 years.

JaxonH commented on These Are Some of the Big PS4 Exclusives You'l...:

@Gamer83 Yeah, the multiplats are where it's at. Bloodborne isn't for me either- just a sickening amount of blood and gore. But I never really was a fan of Sony exclusives- it's the multiplats and 3rd party exclusives that make the system shine. Don't get me wrong, there's a few 1st party titles that I like and find interesting, but to me they're more of a bonus- icing on the cake if you will.

No doubt 2015 is going to be a great year one way or another though. Dragon Age Inquisition, Infamous and Far Cry 4 made 2014 worthwhile to me, and I'm sure 2015 will have it's own gems to match.

Never played Disgea before. I love Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy Tactics, and even games like Frozen Synapse Prime, but the randomly generated dungeons in this franchise have always been the turn off for me. We'll see how it reviews...

JaxonH commented on Game of the Year: Best PS4 Games of 2014:

Oh dear, that's not at all right. Shadow of Mordor was pretty mediocre imo. It wasn't a bad game, but it definitely wasn't all that memorable. Just an endless world of orcs and slaves- the monotony drove me to quit playing it.

And Infamous Second Son, well, that game was definitely not better than Dragon Age Inquisition.

1) Dragon Age Inquisition
2) Far Cry 4
3) Infamous Second Son

Yes, that's better.

JaxonH commented on Soapbox: Poor Communication Continues to Be PS...:

I just want service. For years and years I refused to join PS plus. I finally gave in after pestering from my brother and a legion of fellow gamers on the internet, and in the past couple months I can recall multiple outages. If the online was free I'd have nothing to say but I paid them to access online right now. Doesn't help that certain games are built around online connections even though they're single player. Tried playing Dragon Age but couldn't get past the "connecting to servers" screen before the menu. Finally I had to manually disconnect from the Internet. It was the only way the stupid game wouldn't hang on that screen for eternity

JaxonH commented on Can't Connect to PSN? This Trick Is Working fo...:

Well, tried MTU=1473 and no cigar. Eh, they're going to have to do something because this is getting way past out of control. PSN seems to be down more than it's live nowadays. Wanted to burn through some cash on PSN but I couldn't do that. Then I wanted to rent a movie that was only for Sale on VUDU, so my brother told me to download the Amazon Prime app. Somehow managed to get it downloaded last night in the thick of the outage, but it can't connect to PSN to verify the license!

And, this is why I hate online only games.

JaxonH commented on Game of the Year: Best PS Vita Games of 2014:

Honestly, I still like my Vita quite a bit, but I was not impressed with the games this year. Freedom Wars was ok, but not great. I couldn't get into it and eventually moved on to a Tales of Hearts R, which is my personal pick of the year.

54% on Rotten Tomatoes is actually pretty good imo. I have found through my experience that good movies often rate in the 50 to 60 percentile range. Only the best of the best dare to make it in the 70% or above. I see average movies, decent movies I might add, scoring just 20%.

So basically, what I'm saying is usually the movies are much more enjoyable than what Rotten Tomatoes scores would have you believe

@ToOGoodOfAPlaya
Just so you know, that "free game" offered to season pass owners was a ploy to avoid lawsuits. The free game comes with a string attached- a EULA, which must be agreed to before you can play the free game. In this EULA, there is a sneaky clause hidden within stating that you forfeit and waive any right to file a lawsuit against Ubisoft for Assassin's Creed Unity.

They weren't being generous, they were tricking people into waiving their right to sue.

Had to work all weekend, and go shop for a new recliner, so there hasn't been much time for gaming. Nonetheless, here's the spread for this weekend:

PS4: -nothing-
Xbox One: Forza Horizon 2
Wii U: Captain Toad

Vita: Tales of Hearts R
3DS: -nothing-

@FullbringIchigo
When I swapped my PS4 hard drive for a 2TB drive, I recall the system being extremely noisy the first time I booted up a game afterwards. So I ended up doing some research, and it turns out that it's a fairly common problem to have the fans running full speed when they shouldn't be. Glitch in the system or something. Bottom line is, I don't know what causes it or anything like that, but from what I read it's nothing to worry about. It might be annoying as heck but if anything it's keeping your system cooler than normal, so I suppose that's really a good thing if you think about it.

If you do a Google search I think there's a few fixes for the fan problem. Can't promise they'll work but it might be worth looking into...

JaxonH commented on Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Cordially Invites...:

Well, if you recall, the first one was actually split up into episodic chapters, and each one started with a recap of prior events. As much as I hate to say this (seeing as I am against the entire concept of episodic games), Revelations seems like one game series that really was built for episodes. Of course, I'd I'd still rather enjoy all those episodes in one package at one time...

Tetris Ultimate for $10? They're charging $30 for the game on 3DS, wth? Might have to buy it at that price, though I'm certainly grateful that I didn't buy the game for the handheld now that I see they're basically ripping us off...

Also, Oddworld for $10 on Vita? Is that the same one selling for $30 on PS4? Why these sudden fluctuations in pricing?

JaxonH commented on Review: Rollers of the Realm (PlayStation 4):

Reminds me of Odama on the GameCube. Well, that's genuinely the ONLY other medieval RPG/pinball hybrid I've ever seen actually, and quite possibly the only other one that exists. At least in Odama you could control your soldiers via voice command, well, at least in theory. It only actually worked like 25% of the time lol...
