NathanUC commented on Review: LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (PlayStat...:

@ToddlerNaruto That's a long wait! If it's anything like the other LEGO games, it should be a few dollars by that point. I think I picked up the Marvel Superheros game for like $5 a couple months ago.

Also, if it makes any difference, the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC versions of LEGO Batman 3 are all about the same if you have any of those platforms :)



NathanUC commented on Store Update: 10th December 2014 (Europe):

@SteveButler2210 If you're at least caught UP TO Ramuh gear wise (ilv90-110), you're not that far behind. Even if you are a bit behind, a new tomestone was introduced in 2.4 that would allow you to catch up in terms of gear. Other than Relics, SE has been doing a good job making it possible to 'catch up' even after really long breaks.

I was able to get my Ninja from level 0 to item level 108 in only a couple weeks because gearing up these days is so much easier. Just the weapons are lacking (only have Yoshimitsu Atma on 3rd book). I am logged in a lot, but I'm usually doing other things while 'playing'. Queue times are still pretty bad for a DPS



NathanUC commented on Review: Assassin's Creed Unity (PlayStation 4):

@Gamer83 To be fair, our DriveClub review wasn't ready until two patches into the game. We didn't get a review copy like we did this game. By the time I was able to write the DriveClub review, it was playable most of the time and the review reflected that. If it were completely working as advertised, it would have scored much higher no doubt.

I completely agree with this review. This has become such a weird series where one release will greatly exceed my expectations and the next will miss the mark completely. The amount of issues in this game is unforgivable and just another reminder that developers should take a little more time to refine these 'new engine' games.



NathanUC commented on Review: Freedom Wars (PlayStation Vita):

This game ended up being a big push for me to get a Vita TV. I've only gotten a couple hours into it, but something tells me this is going to be my type of game...

Great review!



NathanUC commented on Review: Lords of the Fallen (PlayStation 4):

@LDXD Yep, once the bully boss #3 killed me and I went back to level up, all enemies were gone and I was free to loot all the things :) I did go back there and kill him using roge's Stab ability. It should nearly 1 hit him at rank 3. I can't say I remember if anything good was back there, but I believe it's eventually used as a shortcut to another area later in the game.



NathanUC commented on Review: Lords of the Fallen (PlayStation 4):

@arnoldlayne83 Yeah that's the one! I was able to figure out the one shot mechanic by listening to the scroll on the ground near the entrance. My biggest problem with him was his second phase gorillas. I know how to counter it, but sometimes there simply wasn't enough time...

I did have the patch. As far as I'm aware, there hasn't been an additional patch since I've started. The boss we're talking about glitched multiple times on me becoming invincible... I also had minor bugs with a couple other fights that forced me to restart. At least the save points are usually right before the bosses.



NathanUC commented on Review: Lords of the Fallen (PlayStation 4):

@arnoldlayne83 Very well said and thank you for the feedback. The bugs I ran into (and witnessed on other live streams) played a heavy role in giving this a seven and not an eight. They were frequent enough to be noticeable, but not enough to take away my recommendation. I think it's still a very cool game, but it was a bit of a let down in too many aspects for me to consider it "very good".

Also, that third boss had me stuck for a while... I ended up playing a new character because I had invested too much experience in my rouge's spells. Overall, that fight was much much easier on a warrior for me since spells had little to no effect on that dude and his annoying gorillas.



NathanUC commented on DriveClub Developer to Roll Out New Game Updat...:

I really hope this patch is more effective than the last. I STILL consonantly get connection issues and I've yet to even access the 'challenges' section.. nor finish a single online race without some type of connection issue



NathanUC commented on Push Rewind: TGS 2014, Minecraft, and Final Fa...:

I'm probably THE ONLY ONE crazy excited about the rumored "Final Fantasy Lightning Collection" coming to PS4.... I have a hard time being excited for XV when little to no info is known yet, but ooooohhh man does the Lightning Collection get me hyped up.



NathanUC commented on PS4's Hardware Is No Longer 'Top of the Line',...:

It's always about optimization rather than raw power when it comes to PC vs console in my opinion. Dedicated hardware with top level hardware access will always result in a more optimized product. Even at it's launch, PS4 wasn't even close to being "top of the line" in terms of raw power.

All in all, I buy consoles for their ease of use, simplicity, and exclusives.



NathanUC commented on Guide: Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition PS4 Tr...:

@glassmusic It's a 'survival' game so it's not all that surprising that you can kill/eat animals. That said, it's 100% optional. Other than making a pig take a bit of fall damage for a trophy, you never NEED to kill an animal as you can very ea sily farm and cook your own vegetables and baked goods.

It's actually way more rewarding raising your own animals for crafting materials like wool and chicken eggs.



NathanUC commented on Review: Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition (Play...:

@Mathieran It's really a bit of both. You can actually progress and "beat" the game (credits screen) in survival mode. It's not restricted to single player and there is no real story to it.

Personally, I spend almost all my time in Minecraft exploring and building up my gear. I very rarely make additions to my castle.



NathanUC commented on You'll be Able to Play PS4 Games on Sony's New...:

I have an Xperia Z and love it. This is going to be coming up around the time I "need" an upgrade. I'm curious to see how well it works compared to Vita.

Also, I'd honestly have very little use for my Vita if this ends up working well. As much as I enjoy it, the controls on Vita are no where near as good or comfortable as the Dualshock 4.



NathanUC commented on Review: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate...:

I played it a bit today and... is it just me or are some Diablo clones better than Diablo? Don't get me wrong, it's really fun and well made, but it seems a bit... unpolished compared to games like Untold Legends or the old "Champions" series.

Perhaps I just need more time with it.



NathanUC commented on Feature: Push Square's Gamescom 2014 Game of t...:

@Punished_Boss I live and breath Metal Gear, but considering all the other fantastic games showed this year... it was a tough call.

I'm going to try and re-play each game prior to Phantom Pain (chronologically) before release, but if that October 2014 release date is correct... I'm probably cutting it too close.



NathanUC commented on Soapbox: Why Destiny Still Has a Lot to Prove ...:

I wouldn't say I was disappointed, but it wasn't what I expected really. I was hoping for more of a densely populated world of enemies with crazy bosses. OBVIOUSLY it was just a beta and the things I'm looking for could very well be in the full game.

Maybe I've just been playing too much Warframe, but Destiny just felt a tad slow.



NathanUC commented on Wait, People Are Still Going on About the Infa...:

@get2sammyb It's likely a law firm or aspiring lawyers trying to get their names on a big case. I highly doubt the 'public' cares about it anymore. In the end, that $15 million settlement means a lot to at least a couple people.. probably the same couple of people drawing this out.

I'm a bit shocked that Sony even allowed for a class action suit to hit the courts to begin with. Most major brands force individuals to agree to alternative dispute resolution according to their terms of service.



NathanUC commented on Wait, People Are Still Going on About the Infa...:

Lawsuits in America are NOTORIOUS for taking years (even decades) to resolve. Long, expensive, and drawn out litigation processes that almost always result in a settlement anyways. I'm not bashing the system thought, just a brief reason why we're still seeing this pop up from time to time.

@MadchesterManc Yeah, they offered 'free' identity theft protection for a year I believe. I still get the "all clear" emails from that agency though haha.



NathanUC commented on Sony's Relying on Strong PS4 Numbers to Help D...:

Both Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited are far too annoying for me to use right now. Video Unlimited doesn't work on half of my devices because of an activation limit, and Music Unlimited just hardly works period.

I never feel like investing in money to buy a digital video when I can't rely on it working on the devices I want. Since the prices are usually similar to Blurays, it always just makes more sense for me to buy those.

Music Unlimited SERIOUSLY needs an overhaul. It constantly crashes, it stops playing songs randomly, it's as slow as a dog and the interface is weird and confusing at times. I'd have no problems paying for a monthly music service like that if it worked...



NathanUC commented on Hold on to Your Handlebars! Here's How MotoGP ...:

I'm not sure if real motorcycle racing has spoiled me or what, but as someone with real track experience, these MotoGP games always look/feel weird.

I think it's just a sport that doesn't transition well to the digital world.



NathanUC commented on Review: Soul Sacrifice Delta (PlayStation Vita):

@ErnisDy That's a LITTLE complicated to answer. (Assuming you've imported your character) At the very start, no. You'll have a few Avalon quests and Sancuary quests to do, but you'll need to complete the first page of Grim quests before you open the rest of the book. Once you do the first pages of all 3 factions, you'll re-open pacts and your story quests to continue. Considering you'll start at level 0, it's probably a good idea to do some low level content for a while to get that level back up.

The TL;DR version is yes, but only once you complete a tiny bit of new content. Maybe an hour tops.



NathanUC commented on Feature: Four Reasons Why PS4 Racer DriveClub ...:

@Scollurio I last played it a couple months ago, so maybe I'll update and give it another go soon.

I'm not THAT concerned about content since adding tracks/cars is easy. It's getting the physics and feel that takes effort and from what I played, it wasn't yet on par with other sims out there.



NathanUC commented on Review: Soul Sacrifice Delta (PlayStation Vita):

@Punished_Boss I've only played about 15 hours into it the week it came out but:
1. Yes
2. It sounded the same to me. I mainly use Party Chat when player, so it might have been in the background.
3. I don't remember there being any patches, but I have version 1.15 installed so it might have had a day 1 patch or something.
4. I've not had issues finding people to play with. I mainly play with individuals on my friends list, but a few times I joined random matches without issues.

I really really really love this game. Delta just made it A LOT better.



NathanUC commented on Feature: Four Reasons Why PS4 Racer DriveClub ...:

@drumsandperc92 Absolutely!!! Metropolis Street Racer, PGR, and PGR2 were some of my absolute favorite racing games. I enjoy GT5 for the rush and stress, but I can only play true racing sims in moderation.

What I like most about the previews of Drive Club is that it looks like they are doing a VERY good job simulating the sensation of speed. Games like GT6 and Forza 6 do a very poor job of this in my opinion.



NathanUC commented on Minecraft Will Be Tunnelling onto PS4 and Vita...:

I'm really really glad this is being handled the way it is. I was holding off on buying it until the cross buy announcement. Even though I'll probably only play this on PS4, I'll probably just grab the PS3/PSV version and upgrade for $5.

It's a bummer Vita and PS4 won't cross save, but the logic is sound.



NathanUC commented on Store Update: 13th May 2014 (North America):

@Gemuarto It contains additional everything pretty much. Much more story/quests, new bosses, a vastly different battle system (can combine many abilities), new rank up systems, better multiplayer, etc.

I'm not saying it's an all new game, but I personally don't see the problem with asking $36 for it. I gladly paid the $36 because I really enjoy Soul Sacrifice and love the new additions. I didn't pay to support devs or localization, I paid because I feel it's an amazing package at an unbeatable value on the platform.
