ztpayne7 commented on Soapbox: Why PS4's Indie Influx Isn't as Bad a...:

Picked up bastion in the last sale and I'm enjoying it so far! Indies can definitely be fun sometimes. I just think at this point in plus' lifespan, there should be a better variety of aaa and indies. Even one aaa game on ps4 every other month.



ztpayne7 commented on The Witcher 3's PS4 Patch 1.08 Fixes Potential...:

Hmmm. The only quest I am not able to finish isn't included on this list - and I know a bunch of people were having issues based on some forums. After 1.07, it seems "Skellige's Most Wanted" was not able to be finished. Doesn't matter though...I think I'm nearing the end and I'll save that for another future playthrough.



ztpayne7 commented on Turn-Based Battles Could Be Scrapped for PS4's...:

I'm okay with them changing it up a little. However, I think it would be better to get them to do it exactly like FF7 than to really botch it up. I hated 13's combat, and 2/3 of my favorite FF games have the ATB (6/7). I also don't see how changing the battle system is going to help this release sooner...

Exec 1 - "I have a great idea that will help us get this sold sooner and will be sure to please old school fans"

Exec 2 - "What's that?"

Exec 1 - "Let's keep the battle system the same and improve the graphics - people already love the game!"

Exec 2 - "Nah. We'd be able to get it out too fast. There's just something about that "Now In Development" note we put at the end of trailers that fans just love. We need to take at least 10 years on this thing...



ztpayne7 commented on August's PlayStation Plus Freebies Feature Lar...:

I'm really glad GOW ascension got on the service. I'm a game or so from playing GOW 3 - and then this will finish the 1-3+ascension saga for me.

I'm also interested in sound shapes, so overall, not bad. Not sure about the ps4 games.



ztpayne7 commented on Here Are Some Details on The Witcher 3's New G...:

Still so many questions, though! Will enemies scale on new game +? Will I just receive no exp throughout the game because I'm extremely overleveled compared to 95% of the game? Will the place of power points be reset, will they not give new points, or will it all accumulate?

Haha sorry guys.



ztpayne7 commented on The Witcher 3's Getting New Game Plus as Free DLC:

Awesome. I hope it will allow you to start new game plus on a higher difficulty, otherwise this probably won't matter to me.

If I can move up to the highest difficulty with my other gear, I'd probably go for platinum on this one...oh wait. I keep forgetting about that crossbow trophy. Grrr.



ztpayne7 commented on Review: Game of Thrones: Episode 5 - A Nest of...:

I'm a firm believer of telltale games lacking real choice. To me, it's always been a "whatever happens, they're just funneling you in to the next plot point, no matter what you chose". And I felt that way about some of the episode. But there's one choice made that sounded like it would completely change up the finale. If they actually play it out separate ways, I'll have actually been a little impressed.



ztpayne7 commented on Review: PlanetSide 2 (PS4):

@john81 haven't started but based on initial readings, each character you make is tied to a faction permanently. You can create another character for a different faction, if desired (not sure there's a point to that)



ztpayne7 commented on Review: PlanetSide 2 (PS4):

I'm not super in to shooting games, but I did really enjoy mag with my friend. He doesn't have a ps4. I just don't know if it's worth trying since I have a pretty big back log and the witcher is just such a long (but enjoyable) game.



ztpayne7 commented on You'll Probably Hear More About Mass Effect: A...:

@Dr-M I do have a Wii u. I wasn't exactly the biggest fan of xenoblade chronicles - and I know I'm pretty much alone on that. I really wanted to like it because I felt sort of rpg starved, but there was something about it I just didn't like. I played it for about 10-15 hours and gave up.

I've actually never played persona before - and I even own a vita. I've always been hoping p4g comes to the instant collection. I just don't play handhelds as much as consoles.



ztpayne7 commented on You'll Probably Hear More About Mass Effect: A...:

@Dr-M I love JRPGS but I feel like there weren't very many good ones this past generation. I'm a big fan of some final fantasy games, (especially 6, 7, and 10), chrono trigger, secret of mana, earthbound - I like a lot of them. Didn't feel like ffxiii was that great.



ztpayne7 commented on Kingdom Hearts III to Be Untangled at D23 Expo...:

@ToddlerNaruto i just started playing it last week and I don't think they'd be able to translate it over. They do a lot of weird things with the touch screen and it would change a lot of what makes the game to not have the visible touch screen. They could maybe do it for Wii u, but not playstation.



ztpayne7 commented on You'll Probably Hear More About Mass Effect: A...:

@Dr-M As someone who really enjoyed Mass Effect but didn't quite feel the same way about Dragon Age, I enjoyed Inquisition a LOT more. It is a very good game. I thought it was a great game...until I played the Witcher which has just surpassed expectations and made Inquisition look a little less exciting.



ztpayne7 commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:

Nothing for me this weekend. I'm out of state with no consoles. So the best I can offer you is I'm trying out fallout shelter on the iPad.

If I were to get home with enough time, I'm just about to start act 2 on the witcher.



ztpayne7 commented on Star Wars Director J.J. Abrams Apparently Thin...:

Yes. This is probably my favorite opening scene in at least video game history. Especially later in the game when it first hits you the significance that current scene relates to the opening. (weird choice of words, but I'm avoiding spoilers)

I did feel like the Last of Us' opening was more emotional, though. Just not as crazy as Uncharted 2.



ztpayne7 commented on Fallout 4's Boston Is Dense with No Loading Sc...:

@milero91 if it does loading screens as well as the witcher, I will be super happy. They can do better by not having zones, but the only way to have less loading than that is to not have fast travel and to not allow dying, which would both be essential to fallout. There will obviously be loading screens there. What he is saying is that you won't have a loading screen when you enter a town, which is exactly what witcher does.



ztpayne7 commented on For Months, It Was 'Impossible' To Get Batman:...:

I don't believe they are bad devs. I might believe that "easy" is in the eye of the beholder. What makes something easy for one person doesn't always translate to everyone. They've been used to making the old consoles so to switch over might have been harder for them than they originally believed.



ztpayne7 commented on DriveClub: PS Plus Edition Is Free to Download...:

It really should have been the full version to make up for how long it has been. However, I personally feel like their promise was at least fulfilled, so I will take what they give me. I'm not a huge racer fan so I don't expect to be really into it, but it will be a nice game to try on the side with the Witcher.



ztpayne7 commented on Don't Forget to Download Your Free The Witcher...:

I'm still in Act 1 of this game, but I honestly feel like this is the best open world rpgish game since Skyrim. I'm really selective with how I spend my money and I was hoping not to drop $60 on this but I gave in...and I'm really glad I did. Haven't messed with much of the free DLC, but I did give Geralt a hair cut.



ztpayne7 commented on Poll: What Was Your Favourite PlayStation Game...:

I would have voted for KH3, but who knows how many years that will take. If uncharted was coming out this year, I might be inclined to be more excited about it, but from the point of view of the way they handled it, Bethesda definitely got me the most excited about Fallout 4.

Oh, and second the KH3 comment for FFVII remake. If I didn't think it wasn't coming out in five years I'd probably give it a strong recommendation.
