  1. 07/12 - Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight (PS4) - so after getting the Platinum trophy on Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight I had planned to play something different, instead I quickly started playing this. It's essentially the same game, but with characters and music from Persona 3. I get the impression they split the game in two and 24 songs when several are remixes of the same song simply isn't enough. Having said that it's a very good rhythm action game. This time I got the Platinum trophy in little more than 8 hours. 08/12 - Concrete Genie (PS4) - this is a nice little game with a heartwarming story and iffy controls. Bring the abandoned port town of Denska back to life by painting the drab walls with colour. Maybe if you have a Playstation Move things are better, but using the waggle function of the Dual Shock 4 for the painting was quickly frustrating and whilst using the analog sticks is fine for most tasks, trying to follow a curved line perfectly had me close to throwing the controller through the TV. The game also has some pacing issues where three quarters of the way through you suddenly get the ability to attack (up to that point there was no combat). Anyhow, iffy painting controls aside, it's quite polished, has a very nice story, and doesn't overstay it's welcome (it probably took me 5-6 hours to play through). I enjoyed it. Previously:
  2. Wasn't Zero also released on PS3? Zero and Kiwami use a different engine to Kiwami 2 and 6. They run at 60FPS whilst the latter two at half that. 3, 4 and 5 are indeed remasters. They're running at a slightly higher resolution (1080p) and at a higher frame rate (60FPS) than the PS3 versions.
  3. @HarryBizzle play the original Luigi’s Mansion. It’s all killer with no filler. 8 or so hours of gaming bliss. The sequels are way too padded out.
  4. That’s the impression I have too. I was hoping that it got a stand-alone release somewhere in the world either physical or digital. I might have to dust off the Vita.
  5. 04/12 - Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight (PS4) - This is actually a very good rhythm action game, combined with a lot of Persona 5 fan service. It's very polished but lacking in songs - with only around 25 songs and many being remixes of the same song. This cost me £13 and at that price it's well worth it, but it's definitely not worth the original £40 asking price. I also managed to get the Platinum trophy (the first one I've ever achieved), mainly by simply playing the game - it really does throw trophies at you. Previously:
  6. 27/11 - Yakuza 4 (PS4) - I played this years ago on the PS3, and now it's been remastered for the PS4. As far as I can see the improvements are a slightly higher resolution; 60FPS and possibly an updated translation. So it does look a little dated. This is the first game in the series that brings in multiple protagonists, so you get to play each chapter as a different character in the money lender Akiyama; the killer Saejima; cop Tamimura as well as everyone's favourite ex-Yakuza member Kiryu. They're all great characters and all with differing fighting styles, which helps to keep things fresh. I'd argue the story is a little on the far fetched end of the scale but that's a minor point. Great stuff. Previously:
  7. Similarly I’d be interested in F355 Challenge
  8. I’m currently up £87, despite spending a load of money over the past month (thanks Black Friday).
  9. If selling a console be careful with postage costs. Or at least don’t underestimate them. I sold my N64 on eBay and it ended up weighing just over 2kg (I was 10 grams over the limit) and it ended up costing me over £15 just to post.
  10. For orders below £20 a while I think. If you have a shop near where you live/work then you can get it delivered there free of charge.
  11. I’ve bought a fair bit. Physical: Concrete Genie (PS4) - €20 Kingdom Hearts 3 (PS4) - €15 Persona 3: Dancing All Night (PS4) - €17 Digital: Katamari Damacy (Switch) - £8 Need for Speed Heat (Xbox One) - £30 eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020 (Xbox One) - £22.50
  12. I didn’t bother pre-ordering a PS4 and then get caught by the hype the week of release. The only way I could get a console was by buying a “mega” bundle from GAME. £655 later I had a PS4; two controllers; a camera; Killzone; Call of Duty; Battlefield; FIFA; Assassin’s Creed and Need for Speed. I don’t do first person shooters or FIFA; and despite my best efforts to like Assassin’s Creed (it was the Pirate one) I don’t do stealth. So I essentially paid £655 to play Need for Speed Rivals. I completely rinsed it, 100% the single player side of things despite it not being that good. Great times.
  13. I hope they go back to the structure of the first game, with “boss” battles.
  14. They had a lot of good deals on Sega/Atlus releases.
  15. Same. I played them in the order 1, 3, 4, Dead Souls, 5, Zero, Kiwami, 6, Kiwami 2. Zero’s my favourite.
  16. The Tomb Raider reboots are far better than any of the Uncharted’s.
  17. I think you’ll find that you can’t polish a turd. PS2 video output just isn’t very good to begin with. Maybe buy a CRT and an RGB Scart cable?
  18. Need for Speed I was. I bought $50 of US store credit from CD Keys so the base game worked out at about £30. I have $11 of credit left over mind you. FIFA showed up when looking for Need for Speed which I’m sure wasn’t there originally. I don’t like FIFA.
  19. Intriguingly both FIFA and the new Need for Speed are on sale but not in Europe.
