belmont commented on Reaction: What Does the Death of Sony Computer...:

When I first saw this I was somewhat optimistic and thought that somehow after the merge psn will become something like steam with worldwide releases finally ditching the archaic pal release problems. Seems that this is not the case, at least at first.

belmont commented on Reaction: Oculus Rift's $599 Price Is Positive...:

I really don't get all this VR stuff. Seems to me that it will fail pretty hard, regardless of price. Are those things suppose to give headaches or dizziness to a fair amount of people anyway? Have we not tried this in the 90's too? I would prefer the resources go to PS4 games

@Bad-MuthaAdebisi Including shipping it is about 100 euros. Very expensive I think. I know I spent 90 euros for the 32GB card close to Vita launch but the whole memory card situation is somewhat ridiculous.

In the 64GB I could fit my backlog plus some all time favourite games like the Final Fantasy series.

@JaxonH Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 2 has been announced for localization? Haven't heard it, great news. Now only trails TC remains...

As for God Eater I loved the first game on PSP! Will definitely keep an eye for the new games!!

belmont commented on Review: Final Fantasy VII (PS4):

It was somewhat charming playing this game back in 1996 without internet, gaming magazines or friends that had it. I played entirely on my own without having anything spoiled. The disk one ending amazed me mostly because the game somewhat said that only Aeris could prevent the calamity.

@kyleforrester87 The clock says about 40 hours but I had 3X always active and did't really do much else beside trophies like perfect game or maxing stats etc. They dialogue seemed slow to me even back in 1996. However the cheats don't disable trophies, I checked. Also the game plays great via Remote Play on Vita.

The No Encounter cheat is a blessing now that I think of it I can use it to do various challenges like No Exp from random battles etc. My try it sometime in the feature.

@VatoLoco47 @kyleforrester87 I so much like FF9. It is the king of missables though. Since they now have this PS2 emulator that add trophies I don't see how they could not do sometime the same with popular PS1 games. So a PC port may not be needed. However we will see the Steam version of FF8 since 7 seems to be selling well. Steam has more FF games (3,4,4 AY,5,6,13) though...

I got the platinum on FF7 yesterday. The time X3 cheat helped to do things fairly quickly. The game play and the backgrounds are still good today. Before PS1 I only had portable consoles so my first true jrpg games were Final Fantasy Legend 1 and 2 that introduced me to the genre. FF7 was also my first "true" jrpg game too

belmont commented on Uh-Oh! Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Be Episod...:

@get2sammyb That's the problem. FF7 is my favourite game so sooner or later I will buy the Parts close to the release date. If it true that each Part will be a full sized FF game you may play it to close the release of the next Part, unless they troll us and release each Part with a two year gap.
Edit: I just saw the feature article. I can't agree more.

When I first saw the news I thought they somehow want to input in the core game plot points from Crisis Core, Digre or Advent Childer. The scale and scope of the Remake seem to be huge. In the end of the day they may make three parts for 60 euros each that is something I may not like even though I know that sooner or later I will biy all parts.

belmont commented on Four More PS2 Games for PS4 May Have Leaked:

If they go for the 5 euros price (some PS2 games for PS3 cost 10 euros) I have no problem to buy some of my favourite games. However disk support would mean that I could play some games I have that won't see the light again like Outrun

belmont commented on Free DriveClub Update Adds Easy Mode and Merce...:

Got the discounted season pass. It has a ton of content, shows how season passes should be. May get Bikes if they discount it towards Christmas. However my progress in the game is somewhat stale. At about ~60 Golds Stars I somehow can't win at the events. I guess I need practice.

belmont commented on Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Holds Steady Despit...:

Even though I have a 3ds it seems bizzare to me that Monster Hunter is not on Vita. The device is ideal for those games with the dual sticks and big screen. The absence of the second stick on 3ds and the bad small stick on New 3ds make playing games like those hard. Monster Hunter helped the PSP could have done the same with the Vita.

belmont commented on Final Fantasy VII PS4 Trophies Unleash Their L...:

Wow I played the original countless of times and I always got Aeris or Tifa on the date. Didn't know that you could get Barret until years later. However I was able to beat all the Weapons and gathering the best weapons without help which, back then, my friends thought that was quite an accomplishment. Back in 1996 nobody new the "internet" here.

belmont commented on Store Update: 24th November 2015 (Europe):

Super Star Wars is live for 9.99 euros. No cross-buy
Is it any good? I hear good things but I have never played or watched Star Wars...

May give Beyond: Two Souls a try sometime, probably on a discount.

belmont commented on A Huge Happy Birthday to the PS4 on Its Second...:

Got my PS4 sometime after Christmas of 2014. It was sold out before and I had to wait for one month for my order. To tell the truth the 409 euros did not really feel justified until sometime later with the likes of Driveclub, Mortal Kombat, Metal Gear etc.

belmont commented on Microsoft Parodies PS4's Infamous Game Sharing...:

Is it strange that there are some that may want BC for practical reasons? It surely is more convenient to play some classic games on PS4 like Final Fantasy series, Sonic 2, Metal Gear Solid 3 and some personal favourites like Outrun or Atelier without having an extra box or tons of cables (which I hate). There were times when I had four consoles on a TV set but I really can't stand the cables, the dust etc.

belmont commented on Review: BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend (PS4):

@Shillll Well it seems that, according to Sony, pqube somehow forgot to submit the free story mode dlc and the problem is with the pal vitas, in US the dlc works. UK, Italy and Greece have the issue so I assume it is in the whole pal region. It will be sorted and it is not the end of the world but it is frustrating to pay 40 euros for a broken game (even though I studied while waiting for midnight). I am not sure for the retail release date too.

Even though I am not particularly good at Blazblue I love the series since I got Calamity Trigger randomly for PSP from the bargain bin some years ago. I like the anime feel, the story and the stylish mode! I have bought US games from local shops that do imports from other regions but the PS4 version of Chrono Phantasma Extend is the only game I imported myself from Amazon.

belmont commented on Review: BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend (PS4):

Sorry for being a bit off topic. I would like to talk about something that got on my nerves.

At the time of writing the Vita version of this game is somewhat broken.

I am a Blazblue fan and stood awake on Thursday at midnight to buy via psn the eu version of the latest game. After a 3.1GB download I went to play the game.
When I chose the Story Mode it was missing! Somehow it functions as an extra psn download. I clicked to download it and, after the store loaded, I got the message "there are no content items". In Friday it didn't work either and, according to gaming forums, the same problem applies to the whole eu store. I contacted the publisher via twitter and e-mail. Another user posted that e-mailed Sony and the replay was that the problem is the publishers fault.
The problem is that the story mode is still missing and it feels that I wasted 40 euros on an incomplete game.

belmont commented on The PlayStation Store Seems to Be Getting a Wi...:

Gifting seems impossible in EU, there are games that are not available in all countries.

Is it me or the wish list icon has taken the place of the wallet icon? Now I can't see how much money remain on my account unless I click on my username.
