Squiggle55 commented on Review: Defense Grid 2 (PlayStation 4):

I've been thinking about this one. I love tower defense. I think I prefer it to be cartoony though like plants vs zombies or pixeljunk monsters. So the only thing holding me back is the general atmosphere if that makes sense. I'll have to watch some videos.

This is a great game. Gardens and Graveyards is by far the most addictive mode. I hope they keep adding maps in the future.

My biggest gripe BY FAR is that the splitscreen option is limited to a local only survival mode. I don't understand at all why you can't jump into Garden Ops or multiplayer with local splitscreen. I even bought a second controller for this game and that was very disappointing.

Squiggle55 commented on Feature: What Went Wrong with PlayStation Mobile?:

I still highly recommend downloading Rymdkapsel. That game is fantastic.

The biggest problem with Playstation Mobile is just like you said, they failed to incorporate it into the playstation ecosystem. If those games had trophies and leaderboards it would have been a gigantic success, absolutely no doubt in my mind.

This really makes no sense at all. I can't even understand their reasoning. What could possibly be wrong with random matchmaking? Sure you won't be nearly as successful with strangers without a headset as you would with friends you are talking to, but that's your problem not Bungie's. Why would they not allow matchmaking? That seems insane.

I really enjoyed the beta. As long as the final release has lots more various landscapes, lots more loot, and lots more different kinds of bosses then I couldn't ask for a lot more. And really I can't imagine why that wouldn't be the case.

Squiggle55 commented on Don't Panic, Sony Hasn't Forgotten About Its V...:

I'm sure I'm not the only one who WANTS to sit there for hours with something like this strapped to my head. And I don't care if it has motion tracking or anything like that. I simply think it would be exponentially more fun playing any game with a gigantic personal movie screen wrapped around my head. I know something like this already exists, but I want it cheaper and more comfortable.

Squiggle55 commented on Review: Resogun: Heroes (PlayStation 4):

Everyone feel free to add me, Squiggle55. I'd love some more Resogun scores to strive for. This DLC was a fantastic addition.

@Davros79 I think you're selling the time needed to beat the game short. I certainly couldn't unlock and complete the game on the hardest difficulty that quickly.

wonderbook was a waste of time, powers was not. I thought it was a fine use of time telling ps+ owners about something else they will get with their subscription. maybe it could have been more concise, but the message was relevant.

LBP2 and LBPV somehow failed to completely capture the magic of LBP1 for me. I don't know if it's the music or the level design or what. The nonstop parade of characters and new gadgets somehow just wasn't quite the same. But with all that said I'm still excited about LBP3. I thought it was a great demonstration.

Squiggle55 commented on June PlayStation Plus Freebies include PixelJu...:

All that matters is this: we are getting 1 more free game a month. Losing the IGC means absolutely nothing to anyone using their noggins. Why would I care if there are 13 games available at any given time when I've been a subscriber for years and download everything the week it is released? Like Sony pointed out in their blog post, you download the games the week they are released and they are yours as long as you are a member, so who cares how long they stay available? Sony is getting rid of the big headache that was the IGC and the different lengths "available" for each game. 6 games a month, 2 for each system, cut and dry. So much simpler to explain to kids who are prone to complain when they are confused, and 1 more game a month for us is all that really matters. Which is fantastic.

I voted for Pixeljunk Shooter. Something tells me that will be the one I spend the most time with for some reason.

Squiggle55 commented on Could You Be Getting Two Free PS4 Titles Next ...:

Of course 2 PS4 games in one month could happen, and it will happen eventually, but games exiting the IGC has absolutely nothing to do with it. This is the same faulty logic that makes people complain that a AAA game leaves the IGC and isn't replaced with a AAA game the same week. WHEN a game leaves the collection affects subscribers in no way. I don't care if resogun leaves next month or 2 years from now, I already have it now. My point is that simply bc 2 PS4 games leave does not mean we are "owed" 2, bc they aren't taking anything away from us.

Squiggle55 commented on Review: Pure Chess (PlayStation 4):

If they added a fully functional and fleshed out online multiplayer mode I would be willing to pay more like $20 easily and I would spend several hours a day on this game.

Squiggle55 commented on Sony Wasn't Allowed to Tell You What the PS4's...:

I can't figure out why my dualshock would need to be tracked for virtual reality.
I'm sure there's a reason I guess, but I can't figure out what it would be. And still they should have put in a "turn off" option when they went through all the trouble of patching in new dimming settings. Give people another hour of battery life and let them turn it on if they ever need it for VR.

Squiggle55 commented on You'll Totally Be Able to Upgrade DriveClub PS...:

Yeah this was a really bad idea. First of all, $50 is way too much in the first place. The explanation that they are treating the unlock as DLC is definitely the problem, and if someone is going to spend $50 to unlock additional cars and tracks they should obviously own that content. That's a no-brainer.

Squiggle55 commented on Does Dimming the PS4 Controller's Light Bar In...:

Thanks for the article. I was hoping for someone to run a test. Seeing that it does save battery life, I wish they would just provide the option to turn the light off completely, since they already went through the trouble of patching in light settings. I suspect they don't want to admit that it was a silly idea. If they simply included "off" while they were already patching in new settings, that's what mine would be set to, because I'll take every hour of battery life I can get. In the grand scheme of things it doesn't "bother" me, but the light serves zero purpose 99% of the time. The default should be off with the option to turn it on if you want to see your torch flicker gimmick in Tomb Raider.

Squiggle55 commented on Talking Point: Are We Starting to Expect Too M...:

"Entitlement" is the key word here. The complaining started after the IGC was unveiled, a move that without question increased the value of PS+. But you started to see lots more complaints because 1)kids didn't pay for it and don't understand value. 2)people didn't understand (and apparently some still don't understand) how the IGC works or why it exists. "What? Why didn't we get another 12 free games this month?" or my favorite "If you remove a AAA game from the IGC, you have to replace it with one". You don't lose games when they're taken off the IGC, that only affects new subscribers. Stop thinking that way.

The only thing PS+ needs to improve is how they handle the situation of people already owning the games. People should NOT get less value for being more loyal customers. That seems like a no-brainer. They can easily see who already owns the game. Toss them a bone. I dunno what. Figure it out.

Squiggle55 commented on Reaction: Price Is the Reality That Threatens ...:

@Longaway "My main interest in it isn't even for gaming. If I can use it as a personal huge screen 3D video system, I'm in."

Exactly. I would love to play around with the VR in games that support it. But I would honestly easily pay $400 for what you said alone. And I would play games using my dualshock with no motion tracking activated.
