KALofKRYPTON commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:

So while considering my possible purchase of a Playstation TV, I took a look at the official compatibility list only to find Speedball 2 Evolution (Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe being one of my all time favourites from the Amiga days) listed!
So that's on the Vita for what remains of the weekend and most of next week's lunchtimes :-D
No multiplayer on the vita version though which is a shame.

@Bad-MuthaAdebisi If you don't like linear games or QTEs then it's really not for you, I agree.

@kupo hard is a little harder as you can take less damage, but it only really applies to the heavier firefights.
I only failed a couple of QTEs on the first try, they're mostly like Force Unleashed QTEs, as in, there to avoid making every bit of combat the same.
If you fail, the scene reloads pretty quickly, I found it all less frustrating than the QTEs in God of War.
Personally, the story is decent, but the performances are stellar.

Finished The Order this afternoon. Really enjoyed it. Three trophies left, which are collectible ones that I don't think I'll bother with. I do hope the meta score doesn't kill the chances of a sequel. Can't help but feel that reviewers haven't been able to just sit back and enjoy the game for what it is.



KALofKRYPTON commented on Prepare for Destruction as Godzilla Blasts ont...:

@rjejr The new movie is a director away from being good.
There's a very conscious choice to have a lot of fight scenes between the monsters viewed from human perspectives- in from the ground, through windows, door slots, TV etc. It's a nice idea, but it's dominant throughout the whole thing- and very annoying.
This combined with the (truly) uninspired 'enemy' monster design really spoil what could easily have been a decent flick. I hope it gets a sequel with a new director and some proper monsters.
For now though, Final Wars is still the greatest Godzilla movie :-D



KALofKRYPTON commented on Review: The Order: 1886 (PlayStation 4):

@Faruko it's a presentation choice. Cinema screen presentation isn't 16:9 like widescreen tvs, so it is cinematic to present with borders.

I have The Order preordered as a present. I'm sure I'll get some enjoyment out of it. So it's not breaking any boundaries but looks very pretty. Sounds like what most people said about Second Son, which was great fun.

I've played plenty of very entertaining games that scored 6 out of 10, even in official publications.



KALofKRYPTON commented on Review: RISK (PlayStation 4):

Damn! Came close to getting this, saw a gameplay video that looked pretty dry.
I'd have much preferred a classic Risk, done akin to R.U.S.E. graphically.

Or y'know, just give us what we all really want; Risk: Sharpe's Command!



KALofKRYPTON commented on Project CARS Puts Its Foot Down in New PS4 Foo...:

@RawWilson1 Simple answer: environmental detail.
Cars looks great, but there's a massive amount of stuff going on in the environment in Driveclub. It's not a detracting part of it, and 30fps is fine for what DC is- Cars may have arcadey options, but it's a car sim at heart. So 60fps is appropriate vs environmental flourish.



KALofKRYPTON commented on Would You Resist a New Resistance Game on PS4?:

@sonicmeerkat It was Ok, just.
Easy plat though, so that sort of made up for it.
It was fairly ugly, sounded average and there was very little by way of atmosphere.
After the first level of near silence on the music front, I played the game to the score from Prometheus - which fit very well.
Burning Skies was a missed opportunity, but Nihilistic didn't really know what they had to work with on the Vita throughout a lot of the game's development. They went safe too, which didn't help matters.



KALofKRYPTON commented on Would You Resist a New Resistance Game on PS4?:

I must say, as a single player console FPS, Resistance 3 is right up there for me. Absolutely loved that game.
I'd like to see a better Vita effort to be honest. Killzone Mercenary really showed what the system is capable of.
And while I'd love to see Resistance 4, it's the wrong time. If it came in place of Killzone Shadow Fall, then it could have shone- but no doubt wouldn't have enjoyed the excellent multiplayer and post release support from the developers.
Currently, the likes of Destiny, Halo, aw and the impending Planetside may block it out. Also, personally I'm holding out (FPS wise) for Battlefront. So long as it launches in a better shape than the last Battlefield, nothing will touch it!



KALofKRYPTON commented on PlayStation Vita Firmware Update v3.36 Stabili...:

@XFsWorld I prefer Transformed to MK8.
They are very different games though. My only issue with MK8 is the residual Wii-ness of the new tracks. While they are nicely laid out, most of them feel too wide.
The latter stages of Sonic Transformed are pretty savagely difficult. I will unlock Ages eventually!



KALofKRYPTON commented on Don't Forget to Download Your Free PlayStation...:


There are some flashback moments from Second Son, but unless you've managed to completely avoid reading or watching anything about it, they're just minor plot spoilers as I recall.

Both are great fun. Fetch's neon powers are lot better than Delsin's though, so that part may leave you a little underwhelmed with Second Son.

If you have a Second Son save you can use Delsin in the arena. I only did that once to try hin out. Again Fetch's powers are more satisfying than Delsin's.

You can probably pick up Second Son relatively cheaply now, so you could just hold fire on First Light.

I do hope they expand more.



KALofKRYPTON commented on Review: Tetris Ultimate (PlayStation 4):

I have about 50 friendson PSN. No issues like those described. Having a lot of fun with it.
It's just Tetris. But by the same token; It's TETRIS!

EDIT: audio cracking is a thing I've noticed on occasion.

FURTHER EDIT: The 'bland' presentation is a boon. For a long time for me, the only Tetris option was one of the God awful android iterations with all of the utterly unnecessary bloat . This is a much improved experience.



KALofKRYPTON commented on Review: Resogun (PlayStation Network - Vita):

It's pretty solid once you're in game. The front end is bizarrely fuzzy though. But hey, it works, and it's free, and it's Resogun.
I have Tetris Ultimate coming next month(have it on PS4, hard to put down!). Between both the sex little beast will be getting a lot of use!
