[PlayStation4 / PSN] Concrete Genie & MediEvil this month

DirtyDirty Registered User regular
So here's the new PS4/PSN thread. The OP is bare for now. I'll update it over the next week, if you guys wanna add a PSN ID list or any other general info. I'll try to at least update the title once a month with notable (preferably exclusive) releases or big news.

Obviously big releases have their own threads, and I think most everyone here knows how this is supposed to work.

    The surge 2 also dropped this month. I was excited about it since I enjoyed the first and thought there was a lot of potential for a series. Apparently they didn't really learn anything between the games though. I still will probably pick it up on sale but these are busy times and it slipped down the queue. Hopefully Nioh 2 can give me another souls experience and improve on the first. Personally still hyped for Doom and not much else this year.

    I'm a million hyped for Doom, and maybe in for Modern Warfare. Don't know of anything else coming this year that I'm in for. I'll probably pick up Code Vein on the cheap eventually? I guess I'm curious to see more about The Outer Worlds. None of those are exclusives though heh.

    My PSN is pretty easy, RidleySaria. I don’t play too many games online. Mostly Borderlands and occasionally Diablo 3, Don’t Starve or Dragon’s Crown.

    Not really in to the competitive stuff.

    I'm Stabbity_Style on PSN, but yeah, I don't really play any multiplayer stuff. Mostly just the single player console exclusives and whatever PS+ games I happen to get.

    Hey, there's some good PS news for Android users. Remote Play is coming this week to all Android phones/tablets running 5.0 or higher (and is no longer exclusive to Sony brand phones). I know this has been available on iPhone/iPad for a while now, but not all of us are the cool kids with the Apple products.

    This is also part of firmware 7.00 coming out of beta into official release. The only other notable feature is the changes to Party Chat. More people in chat, better audio quality, and in the US only, chat transcription.

    edit: I did overlook some bad news. While you only need Android 5.0 to use Remote Play, you need to be Android 10 to use your Dual Shock 4 via bluetooth. So apparently, I'm still not fancy enough for proper support. I don't even get why the requirement is so high.

    PSN handle is Witchsight, sometimes I can be convinced to Apex but I am best as a meat shield.
    Honestly its been a relief to go back to single player games lately. No one is trying to murder me and loot my corpse, its quite lovely.

    I picked up Hand of Fate 2 last week when it was half price, kind of like a deck building faux-boardgame set in your generic fantasy realm. Its been fun actually!
    Ive got my eye on Armello now too, apparently it goes on sale quite often, and has the same sort of board game style gameplay... But with anthropomorphic woodland creatures. Win win!

    Armello is fun stuff as long as you go in knowing it's entirely random.

    I'm anxious to hear more about the supposed technical issues with quiet audio and stuttering. Also, the let's plays I've seen sure make it seem like it takes a long time to whittle down monsters(that seems fine), while the monsters do piddling damage against the players so it looks awfully easy.

    The damage is only piddling if you time your blocks properly, otherwise you get wrecked.

    Yeah it feels a little unbalanced at first. Learning how to perfect to block and upgrading your attack/defense with these red stone collectibles really expand your options. And beating the boss in the third area also tripled the bars of my super meter, which should give some added fun.
    Also, every character you recruit has their own special mechanics/quarks. And learning them really helps

    Don't see how this hurts us here in the states but it is crap to fire people and remove the local talent. Being able to get a feel for how something will sell/perform for a smaller local region can really help build a strong base. This does seem like hubris Sony though. Maybe Sony is in bad financial straits but I don't see how.

    No, they're doing spiffy at the moment.

    Which makes the shakeups really weird. It almost seems like they're expecting the PS5 to have a shaky start so they're trimming the fat before they're forced to. Or maybe leadership just wants to consolidate power/engage in office politics and that's having harsh effects. It's going to be hard to tell until we find out just how ludicrous/non-ludicrous the PS5 will be.

    I mean, provided games continue to come out on and/or be available on the PS4, I'm not paying for a new console. We just got a Switch, I'm not suddenly going to shell out more cash within a year or so just to have the latest version of the Playstation.

    I doubt I'm the very model of a Playstation fan, too. I figure they'll be just fine. I'm just not seeing a need right this moment.

    If I get a half decent trade in offer on my Pro, I'll be all over it - I'd been keeping an eye out for a good special on a 4K UHD player anyway, I can wait for this.

    Anyone messed around with the new expansion of Remote Play + controller support to all Android 10 devices? It almost makes me want an Android tablet. It could give some life to the "classic collection" releases and all the lo-fi indie games that have flooded PSN. They look terrible on the TV but would be pretty good on a tablet.

    Is it out yet? I went looking the other day and the updated Remote ply client wasn't available for download (yet). Doesn't really matter to me as this weekend is PAX and I'm not going to be home until Tuesday anyway...

    Very likely could just be a financial move to counter any problems Brexit could pose, potentially.

    I used it Tuesday night for a second to try out AC Odyssey and it worked fine enough.

    I installed the Remote Play app on my Galaxy phone, but I didn't fool around with it long, as I wasn't planning on really using it until the official controller support came in (my phone still hasn't gotten Android 10). But the image quality and responsiveness felt pretty good. It really depends on how good your home network is, and even then, it's not the best for games that require really precise timing. Something like Sekiro can be pretty frustrating, but I was playing Dishonored, which is much more forgiving, and that was perfectly playable.

    I've been using my Vita, so I'm looking forward to a compact Remote Play option that still gives me all the buttons. Some of the Vita controls for PS4 games are ... cumbersome.

    Just throwing out a recommendation for anyone wanting to Remote Play on their phone now, get one of those smart clips that holds your phone above your controller. The one I got from Nyko seems to be no longer available, but there are plenty of knockoffs that I'm sure are just as good.

    Or pick up a stand for your phone so you can place it in front of you! I've been looking to get one so I can watch some Hulu shows and now I have an added reason.

    Did not know that existed! That sounds awesome, basically like having a real mobile game system rather than just a gimpy hybrid.

    I'm totally looking for one of those tonight.
