So bit of good news. They are quite possibly bringing Sunset Overdrive to the PC. First the rating was released a week or two ago and now Steam has a listing.

General Gaming / Not Quite Digital-Only.
« on: October 10, 2018, 11:01:41 PM »
So I think this can gain enough traction considering how many 'Digital-Only' Physical Copies of games i have picked up recently from the UK, Hong Kong and even Japan, even back on the Vita and PS3 i got some Physical 'Digital-Only' games from other countries. Here's a list of games that i got that were supposed to be Digital-Only but someone decided to throw some physical games for reasons (in no order):

KEY: Aus = Australia, NA = North America, HK = Hong Kong, Jap = Japan, UK = United Kingdom.

- Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition (PS4, NA)
- Shantae and the Pirate's Curse (PS4, NA)
- Shantae Risky's Revenge (PS4, NA)
- Arizona Sunshine (PSVR, UK)
- UnEpic (PS4, HK)
- Severed (PS Vita, HK)
- Super Hot (PSVR, UK)
- Okami (PS3, HK, Yes I also got the PS4 version, SHUT UP!)
- Invizimals Alliance (PS Vita, Aus)
- Invizimals Resistance (PS Vita, Aus)
- Invizimals Lost Tribes (PSP, Aus)
- Valkyria Chronicles 3 (PSP, Jap, technically never released outside of Japan)
- J-Star Victory+ (PS Vita, UK)
- Aer (PS4, UK)
- Book of Potions (PS3, UK)
- Diggs Nightcrawler (PS3, Aus)
- Princess Crown (PSP, Jap, although it was technically NEVER released outside Japan/Hong Kong/Korea)
- Grand Knight's History (PSP, Jap, was exclusive to Japan and possibly Hong Kong)
- Here They Lie (PSVR, UK)
- InFamous First Light (PS4, UK)
- Journey Collector's Edition (PS4, Aus, everywhere except North/South America got a physical release)
- Moss (PSVR, NA)
- Shantae Half-Genie Ultimate Edition (PS4, UK)
- Heavenly Sword (PS3, UK, yes it was available in Canada, but it joined the PS3 party late and it was discontinued and i got 'suckered' in to a UK copy so this one is kind of cheating)

That's the list of games i can recall just by looking at my shelf.

Do any of YOU have a game or two that you had to import to either get a physical copy or even get a copy in general?

General Gaming / Hellblade - Physical Game Release
« on: October 10, 2018, 10:30:35 PM »
So as some of you know, I like having Physical copies of games, very seldom will i get a digital-only copy, unless it's the best thing since the invention of sliced bread. Just today i read that Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice is finally getting a physical copy! I actually cracked and picked up the digital copy last year during a PSN sale. But now i am going to hunt a disc down when it comes out on December 4th. most retailers dont have a listing yet.

I dont know if you recall me mentioning a Reboot of the 'Reboot' cartoon, but apparently they snuck it out without me knowing, it apparently is a NEFLIX exclusive EXCEPT for Canada, where it was instead exclusive on Y.T.V! and the only way i found out was that i went on the US Netflix using a VPN, and saw it there...

Sadly, the clips i have seen are pretty bad... its like power rangers (though most people reference Code Lyoko as similarities); teen drama, where the teens gain super powers and save the world... the only references from the original show is the term 'Guardians', the 'Reboot' Triangle symbols, and Megabyte and Hexadecimal show up at some point...

I MAY try and find a torrent of the show just to see it, but its no hurry if everyone says its bad...

I was browsing some random video game website and came across an article for the Mini PS1 classic. So make room for this bad-boy the list of games hasnt been fully revealed but so far Final fantasy 7, tekken 3 and Wild Arms have been confirmed. Now im just waiting for the Mini GameBoy Classic that's 50% smaller than the original with HDMI connector and a 2 foot EXT cable to link other Mini Gameboys!

General Discussion / My VR addiction.
« on: August 15, 2018, 06:56:03 PM »
It is no secret that i have dabbled in the VR gaming/experience realm now for some time. I bought my PSVR about 6 months after launch i managed to track down a launch bundle, although a bit expensive at that time it was a fun experience and i looked forward to more PSVR games.

As of writing this i currently have 22 physical PSVR games and a smattering of about 12 digital PSVR games most of them are free "experiences"/demo games but fun none the less.

A few months ago i picked up a 2nd (rev.2 model) that had Skyrim VR included for about half the price of the launch bundle. At this point i was hooked. I think this is the future of gaming! And now that i had a 2nd PSVR i could share multiplayer games with my sweetheart!

Before i continue i wish to point out while the PSVR is a good entry VR system (price is hands down best) and the 2 major issues i have encountered are:

1) the PS4 Move controllers don't have a dedicated thumb stick, opting for either using rudimentary button presses from the face buttons or using a tilt mechanic to navigate spaces in "free-roaming" games. Some use the 'Aim' controller which has the thumb sticks, however the controller is in a rifle configuration, so it would not function well in a game like skyrim.

2) the graphics are a bit lacking, unless you have a PS4 Pro.

However rumour has it that Sony is looking to rectify the Move controller issue with an updated model that possibly incorporates a thumb stick. Suffice to say i will probably buy these "MovePlus" to get a better feel for some of the games that are currently using the awkward movement controls.

This past week now marks my 3rd VR purchase. I pulled the trigger on a new VR Ready Gaming PC and Oculus Rift that were on sale at my local big box store (Best Buy) and it was even better than the PSVR in terms of tracking and visual details.

Now i pose the question to you: are you going to make the leap in to VR?

For those of you who may remember, Margot was Lois Lane from the 1970's Super Man movies along side Christopher Reeve. Truly a sad day. Rest in Peace Margo.

General Discussion / Escapist Magazine reboot?
« on: August 08, 2018, 11:07:35 AM »
So i know you may not care too much about the video game/ nerd web-magazine, but i enjoy the Zero Punctuation reviews so when i stopped by today to see what Yahtzee had torn in to i was met with a letter from the editor from August 6th, 2018, and its wording made it sound like they were shutting their doors. But i read on and the editor said they are poised to re-release old shows and introduce new ones. Up to this point all they had was Zero Punctuation and a bi-daily blog/editorial. I recall a time when they had a regular update schedule that i actually followed on monday with Unskippable, wednesday's Zero Punctuation, and friday's Movie Bob... also occasionally intermixed with other shows about movies, video games and board games. Will this change signify a revival or a death knell for the ailing web site? Only time will tell.

General Gaming / Severed physical copy Pre-orders!
« on: July 26, 2018, 03:48:42 PM »
So i have spent the last 4 hours refreshing the Play-Asia listing for 'Severed' ensuring i dont miss out on this gem from the PS Vita. I have bought the digital version, but, i love having a physical version especially when its from a local (Toronto) company! Pity this marks the definitive end to the PS Vita as Sony stopped production of the handheld and recently announced that they will stop physical cart production too. Tis a sad day for us Vita users if only they didnt make proprietary cards and memory the Vita would have probably beat the 3DS.
