Might pick up that Armegeddon Riders and Planets bundle. That racing game - reviewed w/ a 9 3 years ago but Ive never heard of it - sounds good, so Ill take it for free w/ Planets which Ive always wanted. Its Mushroom Wars in space, and my whole family loves MW. Though the free app version sucks.

rjejr commented on Feature: Five Reasons Why You Should Buy a PS4...:

@get2sammyb - Sometimes its good not to buy something until its all there and the hype becomes reality. You have to admit PS TV not having Netflix is odd. And the Vita apoarently didnt legally live up to its claims.

https://www.yahoo.com/tech/s/sony-settles-govt-over-gaming-170443253.html

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hundreds of thousands of people who bought the handheld gaming console PlayStation Vita are in line for a partial refund from Sony because of questionable claims in its advertising.

I actually read most of that article before I realized it wasnt about PS TV.

I hope to get an Uncharted 4 bundle next year for $299.

BTW - Ive noticed all the game articles of late mentioning what system the game is on, so thanks to you and the team.

Oh, and Nintendo over promises too, your whole side of the world is waiting for TVii on Wii U 2 years on. Never gonna happen. Not that I imagine anybody bought a Wii U for that, but still.

My PS+ expires BF from last years sale. Anybody hear any rumors about a new sale?

PS TV bundle is down to $100 a few places but I just can't buy it with that abysmal app selection. Bad enough many of the top Vita games dont play on it, but if I wanted a gaming device without Netflix Id buy a Wii Mini.

I really wanted it when I first saw it and thought it was a free McDonalds Happy meal toy. Maybe $8.

Just this very morning I was telling my wife I wish I had a Jak and Daxter amiibo, Jak w/ Dacter sitting on his shoulder like in the 1st game. I already have 3 Skylander Spyros. Too bad PSASBR bombed so bad b/c I'd also buy. Kratos and Ratchet and Clank and Sly. And Sepiroth of course.

Some day all games will have toys attached, to make up for all games being sold digitally, B&M retaikers have to sell something.

Had to do this last night - almost exactly 12 hours ago actually - and it went real quick, though it may have already been DLd as there was a notice when I turned it on.

I am going to miss all that behind the scenes stuff when my PS+ expires on Friday, but owning only the PS3 means it isn't worth it for me. Though I'ld pick it up for $30 I suppose just to finisih all the stuff I haven't played yet.

With all thats happened in that show over the past 4 years they have to pick a 1 second clip of that poor poor man. It still hurts.

I dont know much about the Telltale games, these are less games and really more like interactive books, correct? Think Ill wait for the inevitable Shadow of Mordor type game - Brothers of Fire and Ice - when you can relive the lives of the Mountain and the Hound.

rjejr commented on PlayStation Experience Attendees to Spend a Ni...:

With the big PS4 titles released this past week - GTAV, FC4, LBP3, DA:I - is there anything else game wise coming out on PS4 in 2014 as interesting as the PSX in Vegas?

I guess it makes sense to have all the games come out before BF, but it also explains why Sony is having this in early Dec b/c there aren't any games left to talk about. I'm probably missing 1 or 2 but nothing comes to mind.

rjejr commented on Store Update: 18th November 2014 (North America):

Wow, there's actually a handful of demos this week, I thought they were a thing of the past.

I never could get the Destiny beta to run - kept saying I wasn't connected to the internet right after I just DL'd the thing - so I'll go take a peek.

Far Cry4, is that is a demo, or do you need a friend to give you a key? Guess I'll go find out after lunch and report back.

rjejr commented on Review: LittleBigPlanet 3 (PlayStation 4):

Sounds even better than expected. The part about building the car and then racing it sounds very Lego, and I've always been a fan of those games.

I need to buy a 4th PS3 controller so we can all play this together. Maybe I'll get the PS TV bundle after all.

rjejr commented on Out This Week: Grand Theft Auto V PS4, LittleB...:

@get2sammyb - "Grand Theft Auto V on the PS4"

"on the PS4" isn't officially part of the title though is it? "SSB for Wii U" really is so I guess it's possible. Just checked the boxes on Amazon US and UK and the boxes all just say "GTAV" so I guess its just GTAV then. Maybe they're saving the subtitles for the PS5 "4K" version?

Dos anybody else think Gamespots website looks like it was designed for Compuserve or Prodigy in 1994?

rjejr commented on Out This Week: Grand Theft Auto V PS4, LittleB...:

52 Tuesdays in a year, and they all picked this one.

And not a single 1 of those 5 multiplats (LBP3 is both last gen and this gen) is on Wii U, which gets Watch Dogs on Tuesday instead. (SSBU isn't out until Friday.)

Question - does GTAV on PS4 and X1 have a subtitle like "Enhanced" or "Collectors' Ed. or "1080p and 30FPS" or something to distinguish it from the the PS3 and Xbox360 versions? I've seen the photos and it's certainly improved, and FPS view means it can almost be played as a different game, but I haven't yet seen an official subtitle.

We'll be getting LBP3 on PS3 for the holidays, just haven't decided which holiday yet.

Vita doesnt exist at this point.

This is the time of year as a father of 2 boys I spend a lot of time scouring the game ads, and I cant recall ever seeing a Vita or a Vita game unless it was in a bundle w/ a PS TV.

Example - TRU had a B1G1 40% off all PS3 and PS4 games.

rjejr commented on Sanzaru Games Crushes Sly Cooper PS4 Sequel Dr...:

To follow up on my earlier comment about not being that into Sly 4 but not really jnowing why, just finshed plsying the Lego Batman 3 demo and it had a simlar unlock minigame to Bentleys and even though it was much simpler it seemed much better. And running around outside the ship Mario galaxy style was cool, and the vertical shooting section was fun. I think I had more fun in 30 minutes of demo than several hours of Sly.

rjejr commented on Round Up: Far Cry 4 PS4 Reviews Scale the High...:

@Punished_Boss_84 - Well I'm halfway thru Tomb Raider now so whenever I see a bow and arrow being used, and the animals being butchered and skinned, I think of that, and Uncharted Among Thieves was all about the Yeti in Shambala, and this game has both an area called Shambala and DLC w/ the Yeti.

ipso facto TR:AT

rjejr commented on Sanzaru Games Crushes Sly Cooper PS4 Sequel Dr...:

@Jaz007 - I agree w/ what you said except I didnt really like it. Too cookie cutter or something. Not nearly enough Sly. I stopped playing after the western section, the pattern already seemed set. It wasnt broken, it was even a little fun, but it just wasnt grabbing me enough to want to keep playing. I wouldnt play another Sly game unless it was a reboot and about 80% Sly.

Tomb Raider: Among Thieves

Wow. So much wow. Too bad I dont play FPS. May have to start.

King Julien doing the narration was great, I kept looking for penguins to pop up.

Naughty Dog better take notes. If Ubi can do this w/ a multiplat title we'll all be expecting to be blown away w/ a PS4 exclusive. If anybody can deliver its them. Not sure how you can top riding on elephants though. I guess an emtoionally charged super witty storyline will do.

I know nothing ever lives up to the trailer, games, movies or shows, but this does look really fun. And it has the bonus of being a follow up afyer AC:U. Probably really good for AC this didnt releas first.

With Sunset Overdrive coming out last month and Halo MCC early this month Im kind of surprised PS4 out sold X1 last month. That $50 across the board X1 price cut should certainly help this month but if I were Sony I wouldnt concede Nov sales just yet. LBP3 is coming, and who really knows what will sell BF?

Can't be too disappointing from Sony's perspective, they sold over 13m $400 consoles in 12 months. Not sure what they where expecting but they have to be happy averaging over 1m a month for a console that seems to have had more bad news this year than good.

@get2sammyb - Yeah, I'm really bad at getting my point across in a non-sacastic manner, but some people don't believe the "leaks" until they are made official, and these are all official sales at this point. I think the retailers gave up trying to squash stuff, they don't have the money that the movie and music studios do for lawyers, they might as well drive traffic to their own websites rather than all the "leak" sites. Makes sense.

rjejr commented on Black Friday PS4 Bundles Leaked at Walmart, Be...:

Is "leaked" the correct word to use in the title when these stores are sending out emails w/ the links to their own websites w/ the ads on them? "Published" might be better. It is nice of you to put them all in 1 place though.

Walmart's ad:

I dont understand collectors ed for unknown entities. What if the game plays like Fast and Furios Showdown?

http://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox-360/fast-furious-showdown

Do you need to own a collectors ed for that? Or DriveClub? I get it for AC Unity or CoD or even Destiny since thats just Halo w/ a shpere anyway. But what do we really know abiut this? It looks pretty? So did that recent Alien game but the final product was dreck.

My first reaction was nausea from watching the limo spin. Actually its not the spinning, its the random spinning all-over motion.

Getting accustomed to that I thought this is what When Vikings Attack (or W101) would look like if all the characters were invisble. Seems more like katamari than Crazy Taxi.

Katamari Taxi? Sounds like fun.

Looks like Enslaved.

Id love a reboot if it were back on the island and everything were happy and honky dory. Even in a story w/ a couple of bad guys trying to conquer the world it was still a tranquil village. My favorite game, dont think I would have liked this. Well ok maybe I would have really enjoyed it, but it wouldnt have been a Jak and Daxter game, then again neither of the 3 sequels were either.

rjejr commented on Store Update: 11th November 2014 (North America):

Are those 2 demos on the Vita or PS3 or both?

Edit - checked the blog but they dont say, guess Ill get off my lazy behind and go see for myself.

Edit 2 - Toybox Turbo demo is on the PS3, Lego Batman may be on PS4 b/c I cant find it, even tried searching, found the games but no demos.

rjejr commented on Here's How LittleBigPlanet 3 Is Being Marketed...:

@get2sammyb - Here's why I'm worried. I just finished the western section in Sly Cooper 4 and I'm not playing it any more, it's just not fun. The original Sly trilogy was great gaming but this just feels all wrong. Its not broken like Sonic 06 or anything, it's just so cookie cutter, theres no point - Murray smashes, Bently minigames and Sly -well I don't think Sly made it to the old west. MAybe as a 1st Sly gam eI'ld like it, but not as 4.

So I've already played 2 LBP games, can they make me want to play 3? The level editor is a given time eater.

@sinalefa - Funny you mentioned Sonic Boom b/c I was thinking Sonic from Sonic '06 might be an Easter egg in this game after reading the article.

And part of the problem w/ PS and NL is all the staggered release dates for EU means we sometimes have to wait for reviews - SB is the 21st. Of course the worst part for me is waking up in the morning and feeling like I'm already a day behind.

Ad was kind of meh compared to that insane PS Experience one but I guess thats the point. Really glad this one got a PS3 release even if Im a little concerned like Goddire that mM didnt make it. But 16 layers and that rod, I just want to see what I can build.

@get2sammyb - Thanks. Wolfenstein topped the charts? Must've been a slow week. I remember that great promo non-gameplay trailer, which was then followed by lots of sub-standard gray FPS stuff. Good for it to be #1, just not something I thought would be worthy of mentioning for bragging rights.

I was just thinking today how much I hate the long wait between seasons of this show - 10 episodes then a 42 week wait is worse than the Sopranos. It doesnt help that I watchec the 1st 2 seasons just before the 3rd do I was kind of reafy for that 1st year break after 30 consecutive episodes, but now another year wait after only 10 uis killing me.

So, this didnt help. It could still be 5 or even 6 more months before its on again. Sigh.

June 2. Isn't that a little too specific for 7 months out? I ALWAYS give Nintendo a hard time for not giving dates but an actual day 7 months out looks weird.

If they are going for parity at 1080p and 60fps then I don't see a problem. :-)

OK 1 more
