Re: The Backlog Check-in Vol. 141: 9/12/20: Super Mario 3D All-Stars Edition

Thanks Argyle for the ps+ cheap! I used cdkkeys before so I trust it (normally I am overly skittish about online stores). You're welcome! I always research a bit before I jump on a deal like that myself to make sure the place is legit. And if I ever post anything here, I've done it myself first so ...

Re: The Backlog Check-in Vol. 141: 9/12/20: Super Mario 3D All-Stars Edition

I managed to get one of the Sony preorder invites and I used it to nail mine down today. In addition to the exclusives on the way (Ratchet & Clank is supposed to be "launch window", so probably first 3-4 months or so) I'm really anxious to play some of the current gen games with the faster load time...

Soooo...is the PS4 fully backward compatible with PS4 or only with those games in that collection? Still confused...
Fully. Well, technically they're saying 99% to cover their backsides for the inevitable handful of games that will have some weird issues.

Re: The Backlog Check-in Vol. 141: 9/12/20: Super Mario 3D All-Stars Edition

Finished Sundered, really enjoyed it overall. I must say I'm not sure how much the random levels - or parts of them, more accurately - when you die added to the game. In games like Dead Souls or Rogue Legacy, the randomized levels play a big part in the addictive gameplay loop. But in Sundered...iun...

Re: The Backlog Check-in Vol. 140: 9/5/20: Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning/RPG Maker MV Edition

BTW, I read a review last night from someone I trust who said that the Amalur "remaster" is more of just an upscaled port with very little changed. Well, very little good changed - apparently they introduced a lot of bugs. :( After reading that, I just ordered Tam an $8 copy of the 360 version off o...

Re: The Backlog Check-in Vol. 140: 9/5/20: Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning/RPG Maker MV Edition

Did you ever finish Darksiders III, or The Outer Worlds? I remember that you were playing and liking them, but then you stopped talking about them. Nope, another couple I need to get back to. Actually, I'm waiting to get back into The Outer Worlds once I have the Xbox Series X, because the load tim...

Re: The Backlog Check-in Vol. 139: 8/29/20: Ary and the Secret of Seasons/Avengers Edition

Mario Sunshine is amazing. I don't know that I ever knew we had another Sunshine aficionado here!?! Such an amazing game. I'll never understand the haters. Yeah, me either. TightWindyGentoopenguin-max-1mb.gif Honestly, Mario 64 is the one out of that group that I don't care anything about. It was n...
