I pulled the trigger on PS+ Extra, there ate quite a few games on the catalogue high on my priority list. Should I prioritize non-Sony games because they're more likely to leave the service, or is that nonsense?

 
 
 

Finally played The Last Guardian. I don't see the big deal at all. Sadly, I didn't feel much playing it other than boredom.

 
 

Trust only in the force! I just finished Jedi Fallen Order and it was awesome! It's been ages since I've played an Star Wars game, and this one delivered and then some. I can't believe it was made by EA, that it was an old-school single player, and that

 
 

Videogame pet peeve: never checking if the villain is actually dead.

 
 
 

John Bolton warned the U.S not to allow a negotiated peace in Ukraine. Mike Pompeo said the the same thing, adding peace would strengthen a "pan-eurasian colossus" led by China. They don't even try to pretend anymore that this isn't about saving Ukraine.

 
 

I look back to Demon's Souls, with Sony declining a western release and Atlus ordering only 50k copies at first, and marvel that even Jedi Fallen Order is "Soulslike" now, with bonfires and recover your bloodstain mechanics.

 
 

I'm a boring person. Shooters keep trying to give me unique, Fancy and innovative weapons, and I keep largely ignoring them in favor of the same old assault rifles and same old shotguns.

 
 

It's a travesty that Metal Gear Solid 4 is still locked in the PS3 dungeon. Come on Konami, remaster it already!

 
 

Rage 2 is legit. Significant improvement over the meh Rage 1.

 
 

Didn't see this on the FP, so I'll mention it here. Apparently Bayonetta 3 has a "family friendly" mode called "Naive Angel mode" that, you guessed it, covers up Bayonetta. Leave it to Platinum to have their fun even when naming stuff lol.

 
 

Checking out some, shall we say, lower priority backlog games. Currently choosing between Torchlight 3 and .Hack GU trilogy. Which would you fine folks suggest? "Neither" is also a valid recommendation!

 
 

It's embarrassing how terrible I am at defending in FIFA22. My brain is still wedded to FIFA11 simple defending scheme, I can't defend shit in this "new" system lol.

 
 

Played a few hours of Days Gone. Looks like a solid 8/10, I've just had enough of zombies for the foreseeable future.

 
 
 

I've never truly adjusted to shooting games with a controller, which is a bit of a bummer.

 
 

I liked the simple stealth gameplay of the classic Hitman games. I even liked the controversial Absolution, but the big, fancy sandboxes of the modern trilogy may be too much for me. Not bad by any means, just... too much, I lose patience.

 
 

This story  really drives home how predatory the F2P industry is. We know it, but when we see some actual numbers, it's still startling.

 
 

I decide to play a bit of Fifa for the first time in almost a decade, start the tutorial and they make me sit through a godamn story mode and skip a ton of cutscenes. Mate, I just want a refresher on the basic controls, not pretend Mbappe is my buddy.

 
 
 

Nier Automata endings ABC finished. What a ride. Credit to Lord Spencer for persuading me sticking with it after the first Playthrough was worth it. Setting combat to easy to blast through the repeat sections also helped. Thoughts and spoilers in comments

 
 

Took 2 playthroughs, but 2B finally decided to put on combat appropriate attire for some reason.


 
 

Weird headline. AFAIK, the backlash was largely due to it being announced at an event geared towards core fans who clearly expected something else. If no-name gambling mobile games can make mad bank, did anyone expect this NOT to make money?


 
 

I'm kinda surprised there wasn't a games media "controversy" over Nier Automata unashamed eroticization of its main character and female androids, or at least not a big enough controversy for me to remember. Not that I mind staring at 2B's lovely ass.


 
 

Yikes, my Bloodborne platinum dreams might be over right after beginning. I assumed performance would be upgraded to 60fps like the Souls trilogy and, as I heard, Sekiro, but apparently it's not. Still locked to 30fps, and choppy 30fps at that. Boooo

 
 

Did I get gud? I think I got kinda gud! I thought I'd be sick of Souls after this platinum run through the series, but surprisingly, I'm not really. Maybe I should go all the way and platinum Bloodborne as well, though it's my least favorite


 
 

Is Sekiro similar to Nioh? I didn't really like Nioh and Sekiro looks kinda similar in some ways, I'm wondering if someone who didn't like Nioh is likely to enjoy Sekiro.

 
 

I really like the concept of the Gravelord Servant Covenant but it's very poorly implemented. I'd love to see the concept return in some form now that both From and online technology have come a long way since 2011.

 
 

I just spent a delightful hour murdering an equally delightful fellow named Old Man Jenkins. He came at me seemingly every possible way! First he invaded me as a dark spirit, then as a blue spirit, and we each killed each other once. Then...
