XMB option for PSTV would be good.

@Belmont make sure the PS4 isn't trying to connect online using WiFi. The PS4 only has 1 WiFi radio that's used for both online functionality and Remote Play. I have my PS4 connected via WiFi and I've found that using the direct connection with Vita is awful, even in the same room. If I turn off the Internet connection on the PS4 it works just fine.

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.

@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!

@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.

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!
