    Declining Sales. WTF Is Going On?

    I delete games. I don’t like having too many games on the dashboard otherwise I end up not able to decide what to play and invariably not playing anything.

    Declining Sales. WTF Is Going On?

    Is it? Downloading a 100Gb file possibly several times I’d imagine would have a fair bit of server energy costs.

    Yeah I’ve noticed the same. They tend to discount through PSN whilst the physical version tends to stay around the RRP.

    I buy them off foreign stores. Can be a fraction of the U.K. price. For example I have Cricket 19 pre-ordered at the moment which I purchased from the Turkish Microsoft store. Cost me less than £20. It’s £50 on the U.K. store.

    Games that you nearly purchased but didn't

    Suikoden on the PlayStation. The local second hand game shop had it but they wanted £24 for it, which was more than I expected and I didn’t have enough money on me to buy it. I did buy it a few years later for a lot more than £24

    Microsoft & Sony sitting in a tree...

    I guess Netflix use AWS. However, I don’t like it.

    Xbox One backwards compatibility

    Hang on. The original Forza Motorsport has been made BC? I have a sealed copy in my box of treasure (pile of shame)

    I used to bin the boxes if they weren't in good condition

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Has there been any news on the second expansion? I was expecting it to be out before the end of the month, but it seems all quiet.
  13. Not yet. Autumn I think

    Abandoned Games (2019)

    Not a complete list (I haven't kept one) but a few more (thankfully all physical releases) I gave up on: Knack 2 (PS4) - Abandoned around half way through. It's better than the original, but it's still not very good. It's caught in the middle between whether it wants to be a 3D platform adventure or an action game, neither of which it does well. In addition Knack has to be one of the most unlikeable protagonists since Busby. Heavy Rain (PS4) - I actually bought this back in the day on the PS3, and I never left the house you start the game in. Same again. I didn't leave the house. Controls are horrid, and having started this straight after completing Beyond Two Souls (which I thought was complete rubbish) the clunkiness combined with the slow pacing wasn't what I was looking for. Gravel (PS4) - On paper this sounds great. An arcade rally game evoking the nostalgia of Sega Rally. Unfortunately the presentation is awful. It's presented as a Saturday afternoon Channel 5 TV highlights programme. Plus most of the races aren't rally but indoor and dirt nonsense. It didn't do anything for me. Fortunately I received more in trade in credit from GAME than I spent buying a new copy from them. So not a complete loss. Resident Evil 7 (PS4) - I really should read some reviews or impressions before buying games. I bought this and was then surprised that it was all in first person. I don't do first person games at the best of times. I rarely like horror, but thought the Resident Evil 2 remake was great. I found this way too unnerving for me. Attack on Titan 2 (PS4) - I've never watched the anime, but taking down naked giants is a bit too weird for me. Fire Pro Wrestling World (PS4) - I haven't managed to get into a wrestling game since the PS1/N64 days. Being a massive fan of wrestling back then probably helped, plus the games were very good. This was ok, but the fights go on too long and like with most fighting games after a couple rounds I'm bored and would rather play something else. Valkyria Chronicles (PS4) - For some reason I just can't get along with this. The turn based with real time elements battle system serves to frustrate. A shame as I like strategy games and the setting is great. Dynasty Warriors 9 (Xbox One) - A completely open world Dynasty Warriors. Sounds good on paper. In practice I didn't have a clue what was going on. I just had loads of icons telling me I could do stuff, without really knowing where and why. Then I'd run off following some arrows, collect some herbs or beat up an army without knowing why I was doing it. Maybe there's a good game in there, but not for me. Plus, graphically this is a mess. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (Xbox One) - I fell for the hype and then found this far too hard for my gaming skills. Maybe if I had bags of patience I could grow to love it, but I don't. A shame as the setting would normally be right up my street.
