fchinaski commented on Limited Run Reveals More Niche PS4, Vita Retai...:

As much as I love my games to be in physical format, I don't have the time, dedication and enough disposable income to keep track/purchase all of these limited editions that interest me. I'm thrilled to see this becoming a trend though, as I think it's a chance for indie gems like Oxenfree to have a more lasting presence, so to speak — we never know when digital games will be pulled off for digital stores these days.

fchinaski commented on Square Enix Strongly Hints at Dragon Quest XI ...:

I dearly hope it sells well overseas, it's my favorite series of all time. They did a wonderful job localizing DQVII and VIII for the 3DS and both spin-offs for the PS4. I was afraid that, after the release of the DQVI remake for the DS (which didn't sell very well), the series would be dead on the West. I'm so glad that they are giving it another shot.

Having said that, I don't think it will ever be as big as it is in Japan, but there's a vocal, dedicated fan base on the West, so I hope Square has conservative expectations and keeps bringing them over if they reach acceptable sales.

fchinaski commented on God of War's Promising PS4 Reboot Is Playable ...:

@rjerj I see where you're coming from, I myself get hyped for very few games. The new GoW isn't one of them — but I'm definetly interested and will certainly buy it. Not day one, as I hardly ever buy games day one — lately, only Dragon Quest stuff because I love the series to death and like to support it when they release its games on the West. And about your Pro only prediction, nah, won't happen — there's no way that would be a sound business decision. What I believe is that we'll see a PS5 way sooner in comparison to the gap between the PS3 and the PS4.

fchinaski commented on God of War's Promising PS4 Reboot Is Playable ...:

@rjejr I think people are excited because by the looks of it it's a departure from the tried and true tropes of the franchise. Gameplay basically didn't change from the first one to Ascension, this one seems to be pushing the series forward in other ways. I'm excited to see where it's going.

fchinaski commented on Never, Ever Change Japanese Game Developers:

Some people sure think MENTAL ILLNESS is triggered not by real life experiences at a tender age and/or other real life factors/abuse, but by the evil Japanese game industry and their evil Japanese game developers.

fchinaski commented on Square Enix Has Plans for Final Fantasy's 30th...:

I can see the remastered XIII trilogy coming to PS4, but I'm not double dipping, as much as I liked the first two (haven't got around to play Lightining Returns yet, but will soon).

The so-called Final Fantasy collection seems like a pipe dream to me, and the only way I'll get one is if they put everything in one disc with trophies.

fchinaski commented on The Reaction to December's PlayStation Plus Ga...:

In truth, I'm past beyond worrying about PS+ offers, since my backlog is already too big and there are so many games I'm yet to play/buy. And, really, I bet most people complaing about these "free" games also have a big backlog with the recurrent sales and all that. So I really see no point. These games are a nice bonus, but I reckon most people have more than enough to play with the PS4 going strong on its third year.

fchinaski commented on December PlayStation Plus Games Have Been Reve...:

Apart from VVVVVV, which I always wanted to try, the only game I would be interested in I already have, which is Stories: The Path of Destiny. As for the rest, they are really scrapping the barrel for PS3 and PSVita aren't they?

fchinaski commented on Poll: Will You Be Buying a PS4 Pro?:

@Devotion I totally understand that this justifies the purchase for some people, not for me though. However, it will be interesting to see how much of a difference we'll actually see when the games start beign patched and when new games arrive, such as GoW for instance. I believe they will be largely cosmetic, but I might be wrong. Either way, I don't see myself upgrading. I hope you'll be very happy with your PS4 Pro though!

fchinaski commented on Poll: Will You Be Buying a PS4 Pro?:

@Devotion In fact, not buying a PS4 Pro makes as much sense as not having the best PC rig possible, but one that's more than good enough to play all games you want.
I understand it's a must for people who want the best possible gaming experience, like you, but having bought a PS4 less than a year and a half ago, there's no way I can justify to myself giving the same amount of money to Sony yet again for these little improvements.

fchinaski commented on Poll: Will You Be Buying a PS4 Pro?:

Not for me. I'm perfectly happy with the launch model and don't even play most of the big hitters that are likely to take advantage of the extra power. Not to mention that I don't even have a 4K TV and don't have any plans to get one.

fchinaski commented on Secure Your PSN Account with Two-Step Verifica...:

@NathanUC From what I understand the device password works like the SMS code, meaning you'll still be using you old password. The device password is just another layer of security like the SMS. If someone else attemps a login you'll receive another message to set up a new device password.

fchinaski commented on PlayStation Plus Price Increase Confirmed for ...:

To be honest, apart from the games on PS+, which I really don't care about/expect great titles any longer (I see the games as a bonus, really), the service kind of improved lately, with more cloud storage space and more stability. I for one can't remember any outages on the recent past. Of course I would like to have it staying the same price forever, but I can't be that much bothered by this somewhat small increase if it affects Europe.

fchinaski commented on Review: Lost Sea (PS4):

The developer seems to have addressed this save issue on their foruns:

"We have recently introduced a patch for PC, which allows you to save & quit the game and continue playing at a later time. The permadeath system however remains in place as the entire game is balanced around it.

We are looking into making the patch available on consoles, however it may take some time as the certification process on consoles is a lot more complicated than on PC and there are some other complications that needs to be solved, too. Please keep an eye on our social channel for updates."

fchinaski commented on Sony: PS4K Will Not Shorten the PS4's Lifecycle:

With Sony insistently saying that both platforms will coexist until the end of this generation's cycle, I'm more and more convinced that PS4 Neo will in fact lengthen the eight generation lifecycle, which was bound to be shorter if these 4K updates hadn't come around.

fchinaski commented on Store Update: 21st June 2016 (Europe):

What a joke, after years of waiting for Dragon Fantasy II in Europe, Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice isn't even available for all European countries (Portugal, where I live, is left out).

fchinaski commented on Soapbox: Let's Be Honest, E3 2016 Was Disappoi...:

I think it was a very safe mid-cycle E3. The thing is, all consoles of this generation are still to deliver a great deal of their promises — and the show reflected that. I imagine next year, with behemoth projects like Final Fantasy XV and Last Guardian out of the way and Neo/Scorpio more close to reality, things will get fresher and more surprising again. Not to mention NX, which will certainly be a thing then.
