two pages late to reply to the replies about my Nier Automata question, but i appreciate the feedback. finally blew the dust off my PS4 since you can't play PS4 demos on the PS5 which sucks.



That's not entirely accurate.

Basically Sony made no effort to get demos of PS4 titles working, only actual paid games were prioritized. So there are some small older demos of games that don't work on a PS5 (e.g. the first FF15 demo is incompatible (the bahamut hunt one), but the later Platinum Demo does work). That said, everything that was newly released on PS4 after Ghost of Tsushima is required to be compatible, including demos etc.

Itís extremely stupid to give the PS4 version of a game away for free to people who own PS5 and then make the PS5 upgrade not free for the 18 of us who actually own PS5

I think the idea is to give a freebie to the people who originally bought it, and also give a freebie to the crowd of people that don't own a piss5.

The tiny sliver of dudes that fall into neither category includes you and maybe your anime mom.

Bust Rodd posted:

Considering some companies just literally give you the PS5 version FOR FREE if you own the PS4 version itís silly to contest that a company couldnít do it for a small fee

You can. It's called buying the disc now and getting the PS5 version for free later.

Bust Rodd posted:

They would absolutely make more money this way than trying to bully PS5 owners into rebuying a game you literally just gave them for free. This seems, like, uniquely designed to prey on whales.

Quantum of Phallus posted:

It just seems like weirdly thought out! Like would you really bother buying it again just for a few new bells and whistles? I dunno!

lol the two people that care about this game the least have the biggest shiniest opinions about it

BisterdDave posted:

I played through 7R last year, and have no intention of picking it up again. I'm just amazed that it's being offered at all, and that it's free for new players who have been waiting to give it a shot. Happy for the gamers that do get to enjoy probably one of the best PS+ offerings to date.

I love Stygian. He's such a chill fight after some of the previous poo poo (rajang/brachy) you do. He's also... easier than regular stygian? Love those cool bug covered dogs.

Sounds like you're ready for Alatreon and Fatalis this weekend

Right after I beat these loving monkey dudes

TheDarkFlame posted:

Yeah, S&S owns, you've got a really versatile utilitarian weapon with some defence and mobility, an attack that's useful for mounting, shield bash attacks that build up stun damage, all good stuff. Other weapons all lean into something a bit more flashy and specialised, so depends on what you want to do.

I'm actually thinking about dropping my Charge Blade for a bit next time I go back to it, even though it's taken me through all of Iceborne and I've finally got the Raging Brachi set/weapon all put together. I'm basically right about to get deep into the endgame stuff, I've cleared the special assignments for Zinogre and Brachydios which just leaves Furious Rajang and Alatreon (and then Fatalis). Also a bunch of guiding lands levelling so I can augment stuff. But every time I play I go back to this one tempered Black Diablos optional quest and get stomped. gently caress that guy in particular. I just can't ever get the chance to put any real damage into it, and genuinely think I need to swap back to the bow or something.

S&S or bow would prolly be good for black diablos, yeah. Charge Blade is powerful and cool looking but I found its gameplay loop to be a bit repetitive. The opposite is true for HBG. It was the last weapon I tried because I thought it would be boring as hell to make Monhun into a shooter, but low and behold it loving rocks and is fun as hell.

Despite absolutely hammering my PS4 in 2020, not been inspired by any game so far this year. Got through Outer Wilds, Doom, second half of RDD2, Control, Horizon, FF7 Remake and a few indies, but not sure if I'm just not looking or if exciting releases have dried up. Thought about Tsushima, but feel like the open world format has been done so many times now that I can't warrant dropping Ä60 on it and losing interest after a few hours.

I hear Ratchet and Clank might be free next month, so maybe give that a go. Anything on the horizon? Outer Wilds remains my pinnacle this gen for sheer novelty and "being something we couldn't do before".

There will probably be a free PS5 version of FF7R remake like a year from when the PS5 version is released for those weird people that didn't buy it back on it's April 2020 release.

just wanted to say that if you enjoyed Persona 5 at all don't sleep on P5 Strikers. it's very good, coming from someone who had never really played any musou-type games before and bounced off the ones I had. I've been told the formula isn't a typical musou game if that's been putting you off

Been getting some weird black flickering on my screen when I booted up my PS4 for the first time in awhile.

The weird part is the sound is fine, it's just the video affected. It also only occurs on most screens, but some (like Persona 5's loading screens) were fine. Tried replugging the HDMI capable, adjusting the power cable, restarting stuff, disabling hdcp, none of that helped. Anyone had that issue?

Could be a hardware one but that seems unlikely, as I haven't used it a lot lately or anything, and the TV is otherwise fine.

I didn't realize Enter the Gungeon mini-sequel Exit the Gungeon actually made it to PS4 until I saw it in the indie sale list. Its....good! I love the first game, possibly my favorite roguelike of all time, and this is obviously a more pared-down version of it, but so far it has a lot of the same charm as the first one. Would recommend it since it's like $5 right now.

Listening to "Life will change" in Strikers right now and it's a nostalgia bomb

I know people pointed out the issues with the writing/localization in original P5 but it seems pretty sharp in Strikers. Also Haru continues to own
