Long time lurker - first time poster.

My launch day PS4 has just given up on me so I've bought a new PS4 (Days of Play 1TB in Grey) - does this count?

@dead-beta Hello there! Yeah hardware counts, this thread is not just for game purchases.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

@JohnnyShoulder Hello.

PS4 has just arrived. Time for all the game updates.🤣

Mounted the latest system software onto USB as I didn't trust the psn network speed!

Unfortunately it might end up having to be a new controller. I boasted on Reddit about 2 weeks ago how I’ve never dealt with “drift” and sure enough it’s started and it’s gotten really bad. I’m using an older controller now and I’d stopped using that one because the buttons stick.

My son is hard on controllers and the older one is his that I’d known to have issues. My “drift” started after I allowed him to use my controller. Love the boy but damn he’s hard on the wallet.

@dead-beta Not sure how much difference that will make, as it is not the downloading of the the update (the size of that file should not be that great) which takes the longest but the copying of the file, which it may still have to do from usb.

Decided to get PS Portable 3000 so my past gen collection of handhelds is complete. Picked Persona 3 Portable with it on an UMD for just over 40 pounds at a local shop. Bargain of a price especially considering P3P on Ps Store (Playable on Vita) costs half as much I ended up paying for the little thing. Any suggestions on what to pick up next? (PSP exclusive)

Going against my recent approach of not buying games to just add to an already large backlog, especially full-priced games — against my better judgement I snatched up a $60 physical copy of Final Fantasy VII Remake. First full priced game I’ve bought since... Concrete Genie, I guess (not counting a couple new games given as gifts) First time I’ve paid $60 for a game since RDR2 I think.

Amazingly physical copies of FF7R seem to have become a rare find. Ordering online can take 2 weeks to restock and prices vary, some online shops price gouging for more than $60. So when I saw one last copy for sale at a local retailer, I went ahead and grabbed it. The critical and fan reception has been very positive so I knew I wanted it eventually and the value of the physical copy seems to be holding so far and I don’t see it being on sale within the next couple months at this rate. I guess maybe pandemic production issues and lack of retailer availability makes for low supply and high demand. Hopefully it will be worth it.

I’m knee deep in Death Stranding still, so it will be a few weeks, but I think FF7R might be my next game to play. We’ll see. At least I have the option of popping it in if I do feel in the mood now. Just gotta keep away from the spoilers for a little longer 😄

Nice choices! Also just a heads up, there is a Retro/Non PS4 Purchases thread.

Anyone else get Sakura Wars? I did and I’m really liking. The game is gorgeous and colorful, the story and characters and pretty good, it’s got a great sense of humor, the animation is phenomenal for a anime game, like this new standard for anime graphics, and the soundtrack is pretty good.

@Jaz007 I think the game looks right up my alley even though it didn't review well on PushSquare. The art style is just so pleasing to the eyes and the characters look interesting as well. Is there a lot of interactions with the characters in between missions or whatever you do in the game? I'd love to get the game eventually, it's a hack 'n' slash right?

@KratosMD It’s a Dynasty Warriors style hack’n slash, but that takes a backseat to character interactions. The combat breaks up the character interactions and story, not the Tibet way around, so story/characters is, the main part of the game. So yeah, there are tons of interactions. The dialogue choices are timed too which keeps you on your feet and makes it feel more like you’re responding in a conversation, which I like. The characters are all pretty good so far. II personally disagree with the PS review of it, so if it looks good I’d absolutely give it a shot. Heck, I’d let you share play it if wanted to give the opening a try. (Though I don’t know whether that work very well across continents lol.)

@Jaz007 I’m just gutted it’s a hack and slash and not a tactical RPG like the old ones. It’s a shame, I was looking forward to it but I’m not a huge musou fan.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Jaz007

@nessisonett For me, I’m ecstatic that it’s not an RPG when it doesn’t need to be. I feel like RPGs are the new grey FPS and it’s shoehorned I’m so much. I get where you’re coming from since that used to be the series, but I’m just glad I don’t have to worry at all about stats or items.

@Jaz007 I guess there’s loads of JRPGs but there’s actually a real lack of good Tactical RPGs on PS4, XCOM and Valkyrie Chronicles are the only big ones I can think of.

@nessisonett Langrisser is similar to Fire Emblem and is good I’ve heard. You might want look at that one. A collection or something just came out for PS4.

Sakura Wars will be mine once it goes down in price a bit. SEGA burned me with the swift price drops to Valkyria Chronicles 4. Granted, the game was worth every cent I paid, but I'm not a big fan of the practice of punishing people who buy your games at launch.

Also not a fan of the move away from SRPG gameplay, but the rest of the package sounds like it'll be right up my alley.
