sinalefa commented on Games Retailers Blame Black Friday for Poor Sales:

Nowadays if a game is not essential I won't pay full price for it. BF or not. Backlog helps a lot there.

I can wait on games I want to play but not dying to play. Specially again, when so many AAA devs release broken messes, and Complete Editions a few months after the initial release. Got burned on Mortal Kombat 9 getting its Komplete Edition so I wisely waited for a sale on MK XL.

I must have played hundreds of hours in Uncharted 3's couch co op with my bro. He adores the game but has accepted the fact 4 wont prolly have it.

About the controller, of all games that you could play you want it for Knack? Wow.

You are welcome about LCU. I knew you would love it. And soon available in non-catastrophic consoles too. I hope Sony fans actually give it the chance it deserves instead of brushing it off as "just another Lego game".

I got Titanfall recently only because it dropped in price. Most of the shooty-footy games that UK loves don't interest me.

Why buy day 1 if I can wait for discounts and fixing of broken launch games or their Definitive editions?

Just got the "Platinum" on Scram Kitty DX. Will probably continue playing Rayman Legends, Diva X and finishing the last few puzzles on Picross 3D 2.

Also replaying Fat Princess Adventures with my bro, this time on Hard mode.

Diva X, Rayman Legends and Picross 3D 2.

I got my bro Gone Home when it was "free" on PS Plus. Neither of us found any appeal whatsoever. We beat Ethan Carter and I will get him Rapture this month as he likes walking simulators.

@rjejr

Well congratulations! Pro or not you will enjoy it. Goes to show for you a low price will always be the deciding factor

I never liked Witcher 3 enough to go back to it after beating the tutorial. But I know you will like U4 and R&C.

Today is Meiko's birthday in the Hatsune Miku games so I will be celebrating her in the three titles I have. I will also continue Rayman Legends on Wii U that I started last week. As usual some couch co op with my bro, we are at the final boss on Fat Princess Adventures.

I will be playing my August darlings: Diva X and KOFXIV. Final Medley in Extreme is the most I have been stumped in a Miku song and last night I was just 500 points short.

The NX, er, Switch has excited me so I may check my Wii U since I have a backlog that I wont be able to play in the new system, PS4 style. Unless they flood it with remasters of course.

sinalefa commented on Review: Thumper (PS4):

@JaxonH

Amplitude's gameplay never clicked with me or felt special or unique. Maybe when it was originally released.

For me the gameplay crown on rhythm games will always belong to RH. You dont have to follow visual cues so you can indeed play with your eyes closed, the game will even hinder your view so you dont rely in visuals. They make you play with the backbeat or throw you off via a trickily timed note instead of just throwing a hundred different button prompts at succession.

Miku games have run of the mill gameplay in comparison but the passion and over the top cheeriness wins me over. At the end of the day my favourite rhythm games are all Japanese.

@JaxonH

Music is meh, aesthetic is boring and controls are not intuitive no matter how I adjusted the button layout.

Guess I am used to the visual zaniness and infectious tracks of Rhythm Heaven and the Miku games. The amount of love and care those games have, I never felt them in Amplitude.

I may leave Diva X alone at last. Got to the point where I only have to get modules and gifts, and with modules being randomized it is just grinding or paying real money to unlock them, which feels terribly cheap and it is terribly expensive.

Regarding what to play, I have a ton of untouched heavy hitters on PS4 like MGSV, Batman, W3, Far Cry 4, DS3, MKXL. May try one of those.
