Oh you were talking about a discord app on ps4. Sorry. I was thinking about just a discord server for PS4 goons to hang out in.

Man it's a real rear end in a top hat to setup and install all your PS Plus games on a new PS3. Finally got it though. Hilariously I have a God of War game it won't let me install because it has a 74 gb hard drive and it thinks the 34 gb game is larger than it.

The system needs like double the size of a game to install and also keeps a reserve for itself in case of update.

Oh, that makes more sense then. It was probably one of the only good ones I have. I've got that, Persona 4 Arena, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 (this one's actually good, played it on 360), Prince of Persia, rain, Echochrome, I am Alive (pass), SSX, a racing game, Port Royale 3, Blood Knight (lol), and a couple others that I don't have on PS4.

That's pretty obvious with Valkyria Revolutions, with the debut trailer all-but-outright stating; "You all liked the woman with the long blue hair and big tits, right? That's what you want more of, isn't it?"

Wait, what do you mean 'gritty WW2 setting and tactical combat'? gently caress what did we do for the game's combat? Okay, scrap that and build some tactical poo poo on top of it.

limaCAT posted:

What if Sony cared about giving the advertising time of E3 to indies until they stopped making money or exclusivity for them? You spend millions on a keynote and then find yourself giving free air to a cabal of people who will just make more money on Steam and on competitor machines, that is the most anti economic stupid bullshit you can ever do. At that point just give time to that idiot first party zombie game.

Any smelly goon on this dead gay subforum will just go and say "nah man I will just buy this on PC on a Steam sale" or "I'd rather buy it on a switch so that I can play it on the toilet".

This. Microsoft isn't giving keynote time to indies because they're altruistic. It's because they have nothing else to show. Plus all they did was an indie highlight reel which showed the games for a few seconds. At least the Undertale announcement happened at the Sony pre-show where people got to talk about it for a few minutes. People are really reaching for reasons to be pissed.

I don't see what's controversial about his statement. Seems more like people (and click bait journalists) are actively looking for a reason to get upset.

It's more to the point those last sentences shouldn't have been said because they could have easily been picked up out of context. As a person speaking to a news source you try not to do that. Plus he should probably never call any facet of the organization or any 'marketing partner' less relevant or explain that they're casting them aside because they've got their own poo poo to hawk. It's bad business. It's like the dumb poo poo he said with the backwards compatibility, he could have just said "We're not really focused on going in that direction right now..." or even "It's not worth the cost to us to put in there" and left it at that but ventured into "I mean did you look at that old poo poo we put out? Who wants to play that?!?" territory and seemed like a goof.

None of it is really that critical yet I just think it's pretty funny.

The whole first mission in DH2 serves as a refresher course for Dishonored 1, although you'll miss some of the connections between characters. Long story short, in Dishonored OG Corvo is an assassin dude who had a daughter with the Empress of Dunwall, the Empress is killed and then Corvo makes a deal with a mysterious Outsider to gain SSJ powers and kill a lot of people in return, and now Corvo's daughter is the new Empress.

Dishonored 2 is not particularly interested in telling its own story to be honest. Its like the most back of napkin plot ever. Super mario 1 has more plot twists.

I played both games about 3 years apart and references popped up that missed a lot of but its nothing important

I bought "Odin Sphere". I was not drunk or anything. The opposite of drunk.

I started playing and is kind of a .... cool cat game?. Like how it moves, I like how it sounds, I like how it plays. I make me happy inside. Can't play very long because I have dumb finders and get tired of mashing the keys.

They poured a lot of love on the backgrounds and foregrounds. Very artistry. I like the part where you level up eating. I would be level 999 if real life worked like that.

Killing floor 2 was some pile of shite to give away with PS+ this month.

I've tried on 5 separate occasions to find a game in matchmaking and have just given up after 15 minutes every time.

That's loving dire for a game they are giving away for nothing this month. It must be truly awful.

Not entirely true. It isn't dead it's just really unintuitive to find matches.

When you select matchmaking set it to never allow games in progress. Set the server to US West. Then while you are matchmaking don't tab over to other menues.

OdinSphere was always a great and beautiful game and they really fixed a lot of the quirks people hated it by making it play similar to Muramasa.

VanillaWare games in general have gorgeous visuals

Nah, everything is really well put together and the characters and stories all really play different, but in a good way.

It controls like every shooterin the past decade if that's what you mean. It can be cod if you pick the gunguy class. Other ones play very differently. Its also supposed to be played online, for what its worth.

I think everyone's individual stories are great, but by the time you hit Velvet (who happens to be the slowest despite having the swinging mechanic), you might get tired of the asset reuse. But that just depends on individual tolerance for that sorta stuff.
I'll say the worst part of the game is by far fighting Skuldi, whose nonstop teleportation is just annoying.

Quite possibly a dumb question but are you able to transfer a hard drive from a launch ps4 to a ps4 pro without reformatting? I was just thinking I'd like a pro once I come into more disposable income but I have a 2tb drive like 80% filled on my current system and gently caress downloading everything again, already did that once when I put the 2tb in and it was awful, and now I own way more games

No. But you can back everything up on an external if you have one that big and transfer it that way.

Ps4 encrypts the hd to that unit only.

Maybe you can move that data to a external USB.

Considery the following: most your savegames will be in the cloud, you can delete all disc-based games, they will install again from the disc on the new console. If anything, you may have to download a few patches.

So PLAN Z:
- Delete all games you have a disc (after checking that the last savegame is on the cloud)
- Move the rest to a USB drive
- Connect the drive to the new console, and move these games from the USB to the disc.

I'm sort of in the same boat. If I buy a PS4 Pro and plan to swap in my 2TB from my old PS4 do I still have to do a PS4 first time boot-up or can I just take the Pro out of the box, swap in the hard drive, install that firmware through the USB drive, and go?

You can do that but you'll have to download everything again.

I just said gently caress it and used the 1tb that came with the pro so I could do a system transfer. Kind of sucks losing 1tb of space but eh.
