On PS3 I will be playing Wolfenstein and Puppeteer, and see if I can finish them this weekend.

On 3DS I will continue with Pokémon X as a friend won't be able to deliver my copy of Smash until next week the soonest.

sinalefa commented on Review: The Evil Within (PlayStation 4):

Thanks for the review. It seems I will wait for a price drop.

Regarding difficulty spikes, I hate them. I am currently playing Wolfenstein in the normal setting, and there is a part I cannot beat, as the enemies are overpowered and there is not enough ammo to defeat them. I am tempted to either lower the difficulty or quit the game altogether.

sinalefa commented on Feature: Why Do Next-Gen Games Keep Disappoint...:

Breathtaking graphics and movie production values lead to gigantic budgets that need to translate to sales of millions of copies. Pubilishers try to do that by advertising like crazy and thus overhyping their games.

In my case I know that first years are not awesome, and even if the PS4 has had a steady flow of games, a lot of those still showed on PS3, preventing me from upgrading. The only new machines I own are Nintendo's systems because I just can't live without their first party software.

I am taking my time waiting for more exclusives before taking the plunge and reading about these new games to avoid disappointment. I don't believe in hype and advertising telling me what to like and what to buy.

I have been playing mostly Stick it to the Man, crazy little game.

I also took the time to play some Puppeteer to see if I can reach the end, and Wolfenstein the New Order is trying to force me to lower the difficulty to see if I can steal the supply train without running out of bullets trying to kill three Super Soldaten. Old FPS were hard but at least we had "save and load anywhere" features.

Thanks for the honest opinion. I don't see my bro playing this with me so co op would be out of the question. As you mention, the extra content makes the whole game $80.

Funny thing I found the problem with the Uncharted 3 disc. If I play it while connected to the Internet (as I was downloading Pacman on the Wii U) and refuse to get the latest patch, the game freezes at startup. So I disconnected the access point and now the game runs normally.

Anyway, I hope you and your kids enjoy HW.

@rjejr

Ha, you know I prefer Nintendo and I have no intentions of getting HW anytime soon. No way I am paying $60 for that one.

As for my games, I need to wait for Pacman and the Ghostly Adventures to download so I can try it out (thanks Smash sale) and I found out that my Uncharted 3 disc refuses to boot up, so there goes my Crushing playthrough. I went back to Puppeteer this morning just to remind me why I never play it.

So I guess the rest of my gaming plans consist on playing something on 3DS, like Pokémon X, the Tappingo games and the Smash demo.

I don't have a PS4 so I can't make the comparison, but this article really sounds like first world problems through and through. That you got spoiled with the PS4 so waiting on the PS3 is now unbearable.

So no, it does not make me want to upgrade. If I can wait weeks or months for games to lower their price because this is an expensive hobby, I can really wait an extra hour or two to download a game. I do admit the web browser is terrible and thus I never use it.

I will get a PS4 when there are exclusives worth my time and money, and right now my PS3 is getting the most usage of any of my other systems because I just got a fight stick for it. I will probably pick up some fighting games I have skipped like DOA5 and I am planning to get the PS3 version of MKX.

Yesterday I got the Madcatz Fighstick Pro that I bought last week, so I am putting it through its paces. I have been mostly playing USFIV, with some Tekken 6 and King of Fighters XIII to try the stick. I am still having a bit of a hard time with double fireball motions, though .

@Jaz007

I am also replaying Uncharted 3, since I never beat the game on Crushing as I did with its predecessors. Mostly because the game never hooked me as the other two did.

Definitely my least favorite Uncharted, with the best part being having splitscreen coop. Me and my bro have played those levels for hours on end.

Oh and of course I will not be playing Destiny and I will be playing the Smash demo until my 3DS falls apart. Thankfully I have two of those.

Nice news. I will wait a couple of months for the inevitable price drop, or a few more months for the "Komplete" Edition. I know WB is fond of those, so no way I am paying $60 day 1 when I can pay $40 or less for the whole package if I am patient.

I have MK9 to scratch my MK itch anyway.

I am playing both Tappingo games on my 3DS. I may continue playing Wolfenstein the New Order with my bro. Whenever you get killed there is a German message displayed, so he is using it as a way to practice a little German (searching for a translation on his tablet) and I get to learn as well.

So when you say you know what I am thinking, are you referring to the bouncy physics? I thought you were referring to "yet another port", but ok. I guess the other two will get cheaper on PS3, and I have been thinking on getting an arcade stick as of late, so I would pick that game up.

I am playing Ultra Street Fighter IV. Now for some reason the HUD won't show so I have to fight without knowing my stamina, etc. And if I go to options to change the HUD position, the game seems to freeze when going into that option. I will try deleting the old Super files and reinstalling the game.

I played like two worlds of Puppeteer until I grew bored of it. I know it is supposed to be like a puppet play, but these characters just talk, and talk, and talk, with Picarina being the biggest offender. The gameplay never really clicked with me either.

So I will be mostly playing on my 3DS. I finished all stages of Bike Rider DX2 today minus the extra hard DLC. Plus I will be playing more Tappingo in anticipation of its sequel hitting next week.

@Demi_God

Agreed. A game like this must have a megabudget, so the only way to break even is to sell as many copies as they can in as many systems as possible. This timed deal puts the PS4 copies in jeopardy, and I don't think what MS paid will make up for that.

IMO they should have either made it multiplat at the same time or make it a One exclusive altogether. Preferably the former.

sinalefa commented on Soapbox: Here's Why I Will Be Playing Journey ...:

I played it on PS3 twice, with the second journey being much shorter than the first one. First playthrough when the Collection released, second one when I was waiting for Super Mario 3D World to download.

It is a very interesting game, and as the name implies, the journey matters more than reaching the destination. I played single player though, and I guess that is a different experience.

Since it depends on the experiences/feelings/thoughts, etc. it evokes, then some people will like it more than others.

I like this because I am closer to get a PS4 than a Vita, but I still would have liked a sequel instead of an enhanced port, and having this IP not being a Vita exclusive anymore is kind of another low blow for the poor portable.

@GameAce @XFsWorld

I got that one for PS3 and I agree with you both. When I get a collection, I seldom complete all games on it, but I did with Sly since I also skipped them in their prime, as I had a Dreamcast that gen. Loved all 3 games, but I haven't picked up 4th yet.

The only bad thing was that I played all three games straight, so I tend to confuse 2 with 3, as in what parts happened in what game, as they are a bit similar.

sinalefa commented on Poll: What Was Your Favourite Game of Gamescom...:

I had to go with Mortal Kombat X. If Tearaway was a sequel and not a retouched port, I would have chosen that. I also like how DriveClub looks.

Even if I love Rayman, I find it hard to get excited for Wild at this point.

And of the games missing from this list The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.
