Root Double arrives a year past the planned release date (so kind of you, Sekai Project), and Narcissu, Fault-milestone one, World End Economica and Grisaia are in limbo with zero updates.

    @Steeler192, I like some of the games you mentioned, having played them on Steam. So I look in my Steam library and dang, I already have Root Double and didn’t know it. Thanks. I am looking forward to playing it this week now.

Hey guys I’m just picked up a PSVR Skyrim Bundle with free Doom VFR from NewEgg. Still waiting on the Farpoint Aim Controller to ship. I’d like to play Doom with the AC.

Anyone know more about game Bravo Team? From E3 it looks like the AC works really well with the game. And I love the idea of another AC co-op game out there. I’m just concerned the game lacks any type of free movement. I coin the term as chair-play. I fear the 3rd person camera in choosing the next musical chair will break the immersion for me. Comments?

    Check out the trailer for Blood & Truth. During the casino scene, the movement scheme is the same as Bravo Team in the sense that you will look at your next position of cover & then move there automatically.

    The difference with Blood & Truth, I think, is that while you’re automatically moving you can still shoot.

    It’s been written that it doesn’t take away from immersion.

    We’ll see if it’s the same for Bravo Team.

    Tomoprime said:

    March 7th, 3:58 pm

    Looks like I was right unfortunately. Supermassive games totally dropped the ball with Bravo Team. I became suspicious after noticing there wasn’t hardly any video footage. I also heard that sharing was disabled in game. It’s a shame to me one step forward in VR with Moss and 2 steps back here. Sony give us Deep Down VR please!

    SirRealDeal said:

    March 9th, 9:04 am

    Indeed. Bravo Team is the worst PSVR purchase I’ve ever made.

    I’ve gone back a couple of times to give it another chance. It’s not worthy.

Kutkh was originally named Willy, but he felt he wanted a more worldly name.

And he was also getting bullied a lot.

Damn that Fear Effect some kind of sequel to the PS1 game Fear Effect?…if yes thats unbelievable,never thought something like this could happen.

Also glad FF15 got a Complete Edition but damn that cover is terrible.

And whats up with everybody lookin like Scrat on that Frantics game?…lol.

    You may want to watch a couple videos on youtube of gameplay for fear effect sedna. Gameplay is very much different to the old fear effect games.

Why does it say “Internet Required” on the Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition? I know the original never required it or for you to be on PSN/XBL to play. Seems something is off or its a error.

I get that you may need Internet to patch the game or download dlc, but that isn’t a permanent requirement and shouldn’t be to play/start the game. You would think they would just put all of the content on the disc, but games are not made like that anymore I guess =/.

    sic2291 said:

    March 4th, 11:53 am

    I am pretty sure these are not new discs at all and they repackaged overstock. And since the updates + DLC are about 50GB to download it’s probably good to have a warning.

    antbon777 said:

    March 6th, 3:29 pm

    Because it is bundled with ‘Comrades’ which is online only I suppose. I hope they patch the original with these updated end bosses etc. I’m not buying the game again for extra content when everything should have been included in the season pass.

Looking forward to trying out Frantics (really enjoy the PlayLink games like Knowledge is Power, That’s You!, and Hidden Agenda).

Final Fantasy Royal Edition!? Nice! Time to pick it up.

I don’t know about Fear Effect though. Gameplay doesn’t look promising and part of me suspects it’s just a nostalgia cash-in.

So how much is Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition add-on/season pass for those of us who already own the game and current season pass?

Loved Scribblenauts on DS, but wonder how it’d work as a party game.

Sony is really dropping the ball when it comes to releasing PS2 emulations. The last one was released over 3 months ago in November. Microsoft releases 2 – 3 Backward Compatible games EVERY WEEK, and they already have 470 titles versus Sony’s 52. And unlike Sony, they don’t force you to buy the game again if you already own it.

I own both a PS4 Slim and an Xbox One S. While I prefer the PS4 for most things, I can’t deny that Microsoft’s Backward Compatibility is blowing Sony out of the water.

Please Sony, get with the program and start releasing more PS2 titles. I’d really love to see Tales of the Abyss, Tales of Legendia, and Dragon Quest VIII. Release those and I promise I’ll shut up. Would you kindly?

2018 03 06 Hate to be a complainer but Another Call of Duty sale. Ghosts – Now a 4 year old game. I would like to purchase the DLC but Activision and Sony NEVER put the the 4 packs on sale. I don’t recall ever seeing a COD map pack on sale or Season Pass on sale. Why?

Feisar said:

March 7th, 9:53 am

PSVR owners… avoid “Bravo Team” at all costs. I’ll be using my “Platinum Rewards” eb games Canada card to return a game for a full refund within a week.

Honestly I don’t know how this one slipped out of the gate. Not usually something Sony let’s happen.

I guess I’ve got to be a little more careful buying without reading any feedback.

ALSO in regards to backward compatibility feedback – my Xbox is handling that correctly. My previous purchases are all there. My library of backward compatible games is slowly (and permanently) growing because of Gold. It’s how it should be done.

Nothing wrong with admitting that and moving forward maybe with PS5. They sure had a lot to learn from you in 2012… but on this topic take a page from their book.

I’m not that into rhythm games, but I’ll admit, Djmax respect looks pretty good. I haven’t played the other ones though, but I think I’ll check this one out. I wanna see what an action rhythm game is like.
