Munkyknuts commented on Grim Fandango Remastered's PS4 and Vita Trophi...:

@AhabSpampurse lol...it is what it is. Platinums usually require some element of multiplayer or performing actions that exist just to get that trophy....I hate MP and once the narrative element of a game is done I rarely continue playing enough to find every one of 100 coins/papers/gems/feathers/whatever. i was close to platinum in Saints Row 3 but I got bored of trying to find all the shortcuts.

All 3 PS4 titles are highly desirable to me. I always liked the look of Grim Fandango but totally missed playing it. However I'm still battling throught Dragon age: Inquisition, I have Farcry 4 after that and a huge backlog of games on both PS3 and PS4 to tackle...I can't keep adding to the line of games waiting to be played so I need to be super selective....Life Is Strange might just still end up being bought tho.

Munkyknuts commented on Review: Saints Row IV: Re-Elected (PlayStation 4):

I went for bleach blonde cockney voiced guy in SR 3 and 4....loved 3 as it was a funny and silly alternative to the dull and oh so serious open worlds of the likes of GTA4 and Mafia 2. SR4 just really really lacked something for me in its story and even in the humour. The visual made my eyes want to cry and fighting aliens and running up buildings just wasn't as fun as cruising around in a custom badass car and fighting different gangs that oozed with personality....and it's out alongside GTA5 which has plenty of humour in it that its previous instalment lacked. I really hope the next Saints Row is back to gang warfare.

Munkyknuts commented on Review: Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell (PlayStati...:

I've always disliked Gat as a character...and I loved Saints Row 3 so I'm a fan of the humour and silliness of the series. However I hated SR4 it looked awful and I just found the storyline boring...it just felt like it should have been DLC for the last game, which in a rarity for me, I bought all the DLC for. Buying DLC for a game that feels like DLC just doesn't do it for me.

Munkyknuts commented on Oh No, the Terrible PS4 Themes Have Arrived:

I like an option of themes and the only one released that I like so far was the 20th anniversary one....some of the ones shown here are naff but it's down to personal taste really. I'd usually go for calm and/or relaxing themes.

Munkyknuts commented on Round Up: Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell PS4 Revi...:

I've only played Saints Row 3 and 4. I loved three with its over the top silliness and vein of humour, it just didn't take itself seriously at all. When I played 4 when it popped up on PS+ I hated it...fighting the aliens was dull and I hated the murky oily visuals, even if they were relevant to the narrative. The super powers were fun but over all I just couldn't get into it.

I've accounted for two of the dragons so far...the Ferelden Frostback and the Northern Hunter. 53hrs in and still loving the game...not loving reading so much about bugs and glitches stopping some trophies from unlocking tho. Hopefully an update will sort it out soon.

Munkyknuts commented on Store Update: 14th January 2014 (Europe):

A new moves pack for WWE 2K15? are they holding back content like that these days? I admit I've not played a wrestling game since 2009 but I don't recall having to pay to get a full range of moves.
If the Farcry 4 DLC is worth the asking price I might get that ready to play with the main game when I start it after living Dragon Age: Inquisition for a few months.

Munkyknuts commented on Fight the Dying Light with New Book Based on T...:

I read a hugely wide and varied range of genre of books...another zombie based novel? Why not? The only books I've read based on games are Dungeons & Dragons Forbidden Realms and those based on Games Workshop properties but I'm open minded.

Munkyknuts commented on Rumour: Could The Elder Scrolls Online Be Adve...:

@Mrskinner yeah I tried a Qunari warrior and an Elven knife wielding Rogue before I went with an archer.
My 1st dragon encounter was in the Hinterlands as well...went from 'ooooh a dragon! That's amazing!' To 'aaaargh sh*t a flock of baby dragons and a really angry dragon!' And all my party being ash stains very quickly. I stayed away from going near them again until I was level 12-13.

Munkyknuts commented on Rumour: Could The Elder Scrolls Online Be Adve...:

@Mrskinner I'm 54 hours in and honestly I've no idea how far through the whole game I am. I've done as much as I can in every area I visit and take plenty of time exploring....I took on my 1st dragon yesterday, it was amazing. It's a truly epic game that I'll need to play at least once more so I can make different choices including picking a different class from my human Rogue/archer goody goody nice guy.

Munkyknuts commented on Rumour: Could The Elder Scrolls Online Be Adve...:

This game is meant to be poor anyway...I'll keep waiting for the next single player Elder Scrolls or Fallout 4. Until then ill continue to savour Dragon Age: Inquisition and hopefully The Witcher when it comes out.
Admittedly since I'm hugely antisocial and hate multiplayer even if the Elder Scrolls online was rated as amazing I'd still not play it.

Munkyknuts commented on Out This Week: Joe Danger 2, Shake Spears, and...:

@Bad-MuthaAdebisi when I finally get through with my play through as a good rogue/archer I have to play through again making negative/evil choices...with games like DA:I, Skyrim, Fallout 3 and Deus Ex with moral systems in them that really change the narrative I always play at least twice...I might go with a mean warrior/vanguard next time. I love games like Dragon Age...my favourite kind of gaming experience.

Munkyknuts commented on Out This Week: Joe Danger 2, Shake Spears, and...:

Nothing really interesting to me there...I suspect Id like Joe Danger if I tried it but I have too many games and too little time to play them already. I'm only able to play Dragon Age: Inquisition for a few hours a day so I'll be busy with that until about March :p

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

I'm 40ish hours in to Dragon Age: Inquisition and still loving it all....exploring all the areas and completing the side quests, it's a game that just keeps on giving. I'm hoping to have clocked another 10-20hrs by Monday and maybe even get somewhere with one of the romances I've been pursuing in it....plus all the demon slaying and world saving stuff.

Munkyknuts commented on Review: Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Direct...:

I got this or at least a version of this on the PS3...possibly via PS+ or maybe just an impulse buy, I can't recall. I never played it but my girlfriend loved it...certainly looked nice when I watched her play. She never finished it tho so I didn't see a great variety of levels....actually the only game I can think of she ever completed was Thomas was Alone.

Munkyknuts commented on There Are a Few Destiny Fans Somewhere in the ...:

Destiny is the Marmite of gaming....love it or hate it....or be crushingly disappointed by it not being what you thought it would be like. It's far enough away from the release of the game that most people's opinions of it are set. While I and others are not fans of it, plenty of other people clearly are....the time for arguing about it all is long in the past. The people who like it will continue to rabidly defend it...those that aren't fans, or more accurately were disappointed by what the game ended up being should have moved onto other things. Personally playing Alien: Isolation, Shadow or Mordor and currently Dragon Age: Inquisition has helped me leave Destiny in my gaming past....and it certainly won't be in my gaming future.

Munkyknuts commented on Retailers Reduce PlayStation TV as US Consumer...:

It was the lack of support for the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime that killed interest in it for me....went with an Amazon Fire TV instead. The console wasn't well advertised either tho...but still it lacks the features of the products its trying to compete against.
I didn't even know the Fire TV had games on it until I turned it on...good bonus.

I've heard some people haven't gotten the gifts...no idea if that's the case or not...this have mainly been greeted on other forums and posts with people b*tching about getting a weapon they don't want or a type they don't use. I'm very far from a fan of destiny but still....a free gift is a free gift, at the very least breaking the weapon will yield some materials.

Munkyknuts commented on Nyko's Nifty PS4 Data Bank Will Solve Your Sto...:

I mostly buy physical copies of games so I didn't think space would be an issue on my PS4 until I found I didn't have any space left on my PS4s hard drive when I tried to play Dragon age: Inquisition.....I hadn't realised that if I buy games on disc it still installs the data on the Hard Drive....so I had games like Destiny and Infamous: 2nd son that I've not played in ages taking up 10s of GB each....that might be obvious and common knowledge to most but I hadn't realised. I really didn't think having to install a new hard drive would be an issue for me just over a year into owning my PS4.

@gregmcevil I do have definite lag on the PS4 so what you say makes sense. I'll try and remember to switch the setting back when all of this dies down. At least it's worked as a fix in the mean time for some folk. If Id still been into playing Destiny the network down time would have sucked more, so i'm pleased I moved on...I feel for those into it and other online only games that have suffered during all this.

I'm still online ok since I used the MTU 1473 thing but I've not been gaming much anyway as I've been lost in a lego building wonderland. I've suggested the MTU fix to some friends who had issues and it worked for them as well. Hopefully it will all be running normally soon and we can have a decent period of time without more connection issues and Pushsquare getting flooded with new people ranting swearing and shouting about throwing their PS4 out of windows.

The PS4 becoming anymore socially orientated and anything like facebook isn't anything Id want any part of so it would need to be able to be all switched off if anything like that was implemented. I'm not a social person and I'm certainly not a social gamer.
I would very very much like to be able to change the username I've had since 2009.

@Corey32989 I don't have CoD so I don't know about that don't have Destiny anymore either. I tried Shadow of Mordor, Dragon Age: Inquisition and Farcry 4 and the online elements of them worked ok. Games I had bought digitally that were locked while I was off PSN are working ok as well.

@Colesfd everything I've tried so far is working OK but I think people are getting varying results from it. Store is working...online component of games I tried worked...friends list is showing now. The 'what's new' section isn't loading but everything else seems ok.

I went to safe mode...chose restart system, waited for it to go through the process. I assume this was what was meant by rebooting? Anyway it didn't work and I'm still getting the NW-31194-8 error message.
I guess next I'll try that other fix to do with MTU or whatever it is on the network settings.

I'm still not online in NE England so I'll try rebooting my PS4...how do I reboot my PS4? I assume it's more than just switching it off and on again? Is it going into safe mode?. Thanks for the info Pushsquare...it must suck having to post about PSN outages at anytime but having to cover it and deal with it over Christmas is even worse. Nice of you to keep us all informed :)

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

@get2sammyb Kudos for P.T being on the list...it was excellent and it was also on the list rather than the endlessly divisive Destiny, which was a pleasant surprise. P.T, along with Outlast, really rekindled my love of horror games and restored my faith that Silent Hill can still be a great thing in the aftermath of some dodgy entries in the series.

I'm still not online in Sunderland area of UK. While it's frustrating I've just found other stuff to be getting on with that don't involve the PS4. My PS3 is working ok so I could have played on that, I've just done none gaming stuff...the lack of gaming isn't ideal but it can't be helped right now. Sony does need better communication with its users in future incidents tho.

Munkyknuts commented on Sony Engineers Investigating as PS4 Goes Offli...:

This wouldn't usually bother me much as I don't play online...however I bought games using PSN credit I got for Christmas by accessing the store through my phone earlier and Id quite like to just get them onto my PS4. It's more serious to the people I know who just got the new system and can't log in to do much with them. Hopefully soon this will all be done with. Until then I'll continue to read and build Lego kits I guess.
