I like using the web store because I do a lot of buying wallet top ups cheaply to get my digital games for less than face value and it’s easier to put the codes in.

I just don’t get it. I used it to pre-order Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls and it was easy and normal and visually it all looks fine and I had no issues whatsoever. Then people are posting screencaps of completely normal-looking tiles like “LOL look at this ugly horrendous garbage” and it’s just bizarre.

It does look incredibly lazy, do they have a single graphic or website designer on payroll? Did they outsource it to some crappy startup who takes advantage of college grads?

Even that would have gotten you something with a little more polish because yeah it literally looks like somebody clicked on "start new website" and started copy pasting text in without bothering to even change the default black on those ugly space wasting tiles

I got Fallout 4 again. I would like to say that years ago, perhaps ITT, I made a post that said the graphics weren't much better than FO3. This was a very wrong post. FO4 looks a lot better. The animation on the robot butler you have is really really good. The water also looks very nice.
It's really weird having your character in a Bethesda game be voiced. I think he's the dude from Mad Men/Firewatch so it's very distracting.

The new web store is obviously some Sony California designer pitching the notion that the "PC/Mobile shopping experience should be unified with the PS5 shopping experience," so undoubtedly the web store is precisely what the new "built in" store on the PS5 is going to be and they thought it'd be a good idea for them to be the same.

It looks better in mobile, less empty space and enormous empty squares. Desktop looks weird and it still does the PS store thing of not really being sure if you're logged in or not.

I think the biggest problem is they took the store down and redesigned it, but like didn’t make it better.

I went back to the old webstore just search for a ps4 app on google and your back on it somehow.

Sounds like new costumes, player messages like Dark Souls, selectable boss fights, and a sort of "boss rush" mode where you will fight a series of bosses with breaks in between.

It objectively has less functionality than the old store

be warned, the performance is pretty crap in certain areas. it ran much better in boost mode, before it got a patch with pro "improvements".

So I'm playing Vampyr, which I think is an okay little AA game trying to do stuff it can't really do, but man it really wants to be Bloodborne. Everything about this game just screams "we played Bloodborne and..." then they went from there. Seriously this looks like a Hunter's Dream prototype right here.

https://twitter.com/Dr_Drecula/stat...7568098305?s=20

Also combat balance is kinda fucky when they give you a teleport dodge and a ton of flat stamina upgrades. I just killed a boss almost 10 levels higher than me by dashing away twice, dashing in once, attacking, then dashing away. The fight really wanted to be an epic Fromsoft Bloodborne fight too, in this spooky graveyard with an enemy trying to stab you with a loving cross. I'm still enjoying it, but man it's like I'm playing Great Value Bloodborne and now I hope PS5 can boost that game good.

That’s actually a little disappointing. I hope they add the broken archstone back in at least. There are a lot of improvements From made to the formula and it would be a shame to not incorporate at least some of them.

Eh it didn't give me too much of a bloodborne vibe, just mostly the dark/morbid aesthetics. Also I liked just going totally evil and killing everyone to power up because I couldn't give a poo poo to do any sidequest nonsense.

Ah yes, Bloodborne, a game known for its hours of dialogue trees and historical setting

Just finished the two Evil Within DLC episodes where you play as Kidman... they were really good and honestly fill in a lot of the things that I didn’t understand about the plot from the main game. Also it was generally easier than the main game but that’s not a bad thing necessarily since the main game was frustratingly hard sometimes

Spyro 2 seems worse than the first one with all the little cutscenes and backtracking. Is the third one the same way or can you blitz through it like the first game?

Yeah, which is why I qualified it the next sentence with something about them wanting to do more with that idea. It's got a ton of surface level stuff to compare to then goes in its own weird direction.

Bloodborne didn't invent that aesthetic either though so

I just feel like it really DOESN'T want to be Bloodborne, it wants to be basically a Vampire The Masquerade game
