I was gonna ask a question but remembered I’m unlikely to receive a suitable reply. I miss those times of distant past where you had employed a person to read these posts and respond to queries.

Jawad, Fred, Chris even.

Them times, huh?

Could just ask it anyway, sometimes someone knows or can find out…

@bluspykz Precious memories.

Hello, Gnomes Garden Bundle was in last week (and the week before that) “New on PlayStation store”, but still hasn’t showed up. Any ETA?

I’m not ashamed to say I am in love with Steins;Gate

Its on my top 10 animes of all time

Not much for me, but I’ll give a go for Trials. The previous one was very enjoyable. I tried Anthem on Xbox (10 hrs of access), it runs better (than the VIP demo), but I got bored after 2 or 3 missions. It seemed like I saw this before a couple of times.. Boring game, boring concept, they only new thing is the flying system, but it can overheat quickly.

I agree it gets boring fast and I wont be buying it but Anthem is actually one of the few games that runs better on PS4 (Pro vs X), at least during the demo, pretty much every gaming website reports the same thing.

The best thing this week by far is a content pack for SC VI…

No idea what comes second so I guess it’s a draw between them all!!*

*(other than anything for junky Dissidia)

Anthem! I know it’s unpopular to like a game published by EA, but the demo was great fun (…when it worked). I’m ready to get back in my Javelin and rain death from above.

They are just posers. It is funny that the people who complain most about EA are the actual ones that have most of the EA’s games…

The hate for this game and EA is just beyond stupid. Give it a rest already, a fun game is a fun game. I have preordered Anthem with a headset, found a store who gave half price on the game if you got it with a headset and I need a new one :)

If you enjoy a game then that’s really all that matters!

Liking and enjoying a game that everyone says is bad is a billion times better than pretending to like a “good” game that you find dull.

I spend a bunch of time playing co op in a different “bad” series of games.

I see Farm Together in the DLC list. Is this game actually available on the PlayStation?

Rocksmith DLC for this week is 2000s Mix V with Blink 182 “Always” Fountains of Wayne “Stacy’s Mom” snd Drowning Pool with “Let the bodies hit the floor Let the bodies hit the floor Let the bodies hit the floor Let the bodies hit the FLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR”

To whoever wrote this blog post…A big sarcastic Thanks Very much. You’ve cost me €15! The initial link you’ve put up for per-ordering ChromaGun VR, is linked to the original game(the VR version is a Standalone Version). I went ahead and purchased that version assuming it would get a free VR patch.

But upon further research and after starting the game(with the VR version launched here in Ireland), there is no sign of a VR patch. Then I find out the VR is a standalone done by a single guy. There’s a form on reddit for people that own the original, can fill in with proof of purchase(transaction ID from the store purchase). That needed to be filled in before 12AM on the 18th of Feb and they’ll send you a personal code for the VR version. I only found it at 4 minutes past…..so probably too late.

So thanks again(Not) and please fix the link, in case anyone else tries it.

February seems like pretty weak month so far. :-/ (At least for me. I know these generic shooters has its audience. Its just not for me :-/ )

Has anyone heard anything about a release date for Odallus or Oniken games? They’re out in america and even Playstation Europe had the trailers up on their youtube page but without dates or even a “coming soon”.

Any news about Path of the Exile? If i remember correct they said early February.

Delayed until mid March.

Now how about putting all the older PSP Guilty Gear and BlazBlue games on sale? Last time they were on sale, there were some problems with the publisher and it resulted in many countries not being able to buy the games during the sale period. The games have come back now, but it really sucks that some of us couldn’t buy the games for the sale prices just because they became unavailable at that time.And also, is PSP version of Dragon’s Lair never going to be on sale? The PS3 version has reduced in price multiple times, but to my understanding, PSP version has never been. [DELETED]
