No love for Yomawari? Great little horror games, remind me a lot of the first Silent Hill in their design.

Kinda funny that anywhereVR isn’t available in a ton of countries. Maybe someplacesVR would be a better name.

Can’t wait for Nights of Azure 2! Might grab Yomawari on PS4 if the price is right.

Btw, is there ANY news on the Wakanim App for the Nordic Countries? It was sent to you somewhere in August, but we haven’t seen the shadow of it, and it doesn’t seem like Wakanim know what’s going on either, and are still waiting for it to be published or at least to get some sort of word on why its taking so long.

Persona 5 ultimate edition?!?!?

What’s that? I assume it’s the game with all the DLC chucked in?

The Ultimate edition by itself is not the worst thing, the pricing of the new DLC packs and pricing of the Ultimate edition together are a big middle finger to their biggest fans who bought the game day one imo.

Not that I was going to buy them, but I don’t really understand how they can charge €70 for the new 2 DLC packs and €100 for the Ultimate edition. Those DLC packs are way overpriced (especially the costume one at €50).

Maybe it’s because this was my first Persona game, but I don’t see how that costume DLC adds anything useful to the game (that said, I almost never understand cosmetic DLC, so maybe it’s just me). I also never used the free costumes I got. The Persona’s can be nice, but not for that price. Plenty of content in that game without it anyway.

I also want to know what is included … I’m ready to buy P5 but was waiting for the next time it gets discounted. As for your comment MrMette the costumes also change the battle music I think … If you have played any of the older Persona games you might very well have fallen in love with those old battle tunes and want to hear it again in P5, that’s the main reason for the constumes.

But if your new to the franchise you don’t really have any reason to buy them.

But for 100 Euros that seems pretty steep … I will stick to the standard edition I think!

I understand nostalgia and I am not saying people shouldn’t buy this DLC, but the normal DLC was too expensive as is (imo).

The only reason they are charging this high of a price is because they now a lot of fans will pay it anyway. They should he happy with how well the game did instead of trying to nickel and dime their fans. That said, I will almost never buy this type of stuff (certainly not if it’s priced like this).

Btw: to me, it seems to include all DLC for the Ultimate editon.

The store page for each item shows what is included, but here is the info from the UK Store (you can check it on the Dutch store in Dutch).

Persona 5 Ultimate:

* Persona 5

* all additional Personas

* all special Costumes

* Healing Item Set

* Skill Card Set

* Japanese Audio Track

* New Difficulty Level (Merciless)

Costume & BGM:

* Persona 4 Costume & BGM Special Set

* Persona 3 Costume & BGM Special Set

* Persona 2 Costume & BGM Special Set

* Shin Megami Tensei: Persona Costume & BGM S...

Assassin’s Creed Origins “HELIX CREDITS PACK” DLC (Base, Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large).

Please don’t tell me that this is what I think it is. Not only a season pass and in-game lootboxes, but microtransactions!?

Yeah, it IS what you think it is. And it will be worse. Cancer from mobile games industry is spreading.

I hope its no worse than AC Unity and Syndicate as they both had Helix Credits but I never felt the need to buy any on either game. It is a growing problem on so many new games tho! (looking at you Shadow of War and Battlefront 2)

These made up currency credits, lootboxes and microtransactions in full price games are why I don’t do AAA gaming any more, the cancer that started in the mobile market has reached stage 4 and moved to other parts of the industry.

Why on Earth should I pay £50 + £20 for the complete edition + £30 season pass + £Potentially Infinite in a shady gambling racket to play the likes of Battlefront 2, Destiny 2, Shadow of Microtransactions, or Assassins Creed, to get flashy, over-hyped experiences that are woefully lacking when it comes to single player modes, which use multiplayer to pad out the content, and are specifically designed to slow progression to make you tempted to use real money to speed things up.

My last few games have been the likes of Doom, Valkyria Chronicles, Final Fantasy XII, Dust, Persona 5, Trails of Cold Steel 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, Witcher 3, and XCOM2 – proof positive that it’s still possible to develop great games that people enjoy, charge a fair price with no more...

Ubisoft, EA, and WB can collapse in on themselves for all I am concerned – the industry would be better off without them. Just a shame that they tend to destroy good development teams in the process.

What is going on with Blue Reflection and Yomawari in Australia? Both have been rated by the classification board but neither of them are being released on PSN? For once Australian classifications aren’t the problem so is it the publishers or SCEE that’s gumming up the works?

Yomawari is schedule for a November 3rd release for Australia, As for Blue Reflection even with it’s R18+ rating Koei Tecmo is claiming there is Age Rating Legalities in Australia (and possibly New Zealand) for blocking it being released on PS4 in said region.

6.2

I tried to talk with Tecmo, from the response I got and reading between the lines I think they just wrote our regions off because of our extremely heavy handed classification. Just not worth distributing.

Anything Koei has said just flat out does not make sense as Senran Kagura was only just released as with many other R rated games, no problem whatsoever digitally even if most physical chains didn’t want to hold stock like EB.

I don’t think it has anything to do with the classification board since the game holds a valid R18+ rating for Australia, I think the company feels the game won’t sell because of said rating and thus wrote AU/NZ regions off.

THE MUMMY DEMASTERED for me. Metroidvania with shooty fun and QUALITY pixel art! Thank you very much, Wayforward. :D

Also loving Brawlhalla from last week. Weird cos I’ve never cared for Smash Bros. Maybe the Nintendo characters put me off that one cos I sure like the roster on Brawlhalla much more.

7.1

So I thought “only Aer and Raiden. I can do that…”

But of you just had to point out the Wayforward game that I missed, didn’t ya..

I picked up Mummy: Demastered and I’m really enjoying it so far. The synth music is also very nice.

It is. Great pixel art, lovely music, solid gameplay. A quality Metroid clone you don’t need a Nintendo for. :D

What’s this? No new farming games?

You never know, Wolfenstein II might have gone in a *very* different direction from its predecessor

With Facebook support! “Like this post to help Aunt Megan get a new Nazi Robot DeathCow!”

No mention of the new and completely free update dlc for Job Simulator VR Infinite Overtime?

What’s happening with Hidden Agenda?

Out 22nd November. There’s a whole other post detailing it

So, what is happening with the Rock Band 4 entitlements that were promised?

SIEA PS4 users and XBOX users worldwide have most of the content they owned on the PS3/360, whereas, here we are 2 years after the game’s release STILL waiting for the rest of our content.

And, what about the Gran Turismo Sport DLC debacle… if you haven’t heard, it’s all over the internet that anyone that bought physical editions of the games and received codes for digital content, are missing items… namely the Chrome Helmet, in-game credit and Dynamic Themes that were promised with the Europe, America and Japan Packs, as well as the Chrome Helmet and some of the cars from the Day 1/Steelbook and Collector’s Editions.

It’s ridiculous that we pay $120-200 for the game and despite PlayStation Support being aware of the issue, are seemingly doing nothing about the missing content.

Not happy!

Ya know what? I was gonna get somewhat annoyed with that Deer Hunter game being first like that (or even existing) but hey if folk are killing virtual deer rather than real ones that’s ok with me. Guess can say same about the many more games we play where we kill people. :P

The Evil Within’ 2: The Censored Edition.

14

I can’t believe that they are releasing two huge AAA games in the same week, butter & friends and Stuntkite masters.

15

Was interested to see what ministry of time VR was. Just a broken link though . Bummer

15.1

Yes. Not sure why it has not released and when will it be.

“Save the Time” is a virtual reality experience in which you’ll be inside one of the best television series in Spain,” The Ministry of Time “. In this experience, you​’ll​ live an adventure in first person​,​ try​ing​ to dismantle the plans of the “Angel Exterminator”​…

15.2

I think it may only be coming to certain countries as it is Spanish. Maybe only Spain and Spanish speaking countries
