I wonder what actually changes?
I thought for multi-plats their console of choice was already Playstation
I haven't heard anything of Killer instinct in years.
Nintendo is already doing their best to kill competitive Smash it feels like.

So what is the actual change? Were they using PC's before? Or is this just free advertising

Nothing except business extension for PS.

They aren't going to stop non PS consoles being used.

In fact, i think Tekken will be played on PC.

I could never get into 12. It had a weird hybrid system that didn't click for me.. it also played like a offline MMO.. not my cup of tea. The characters were also a bit.. eh.

Onto XIII yeah some are insufferable like happy go-getter Vanille, but once you kinda clock out of their weird quirks and awkward dialogue, that probably only work on Japanese dialect and customs its not that bad. Like there was nothing like that laughing Tidus scene in that game lol. But yeah it was the switching back and fourth between specs, balancing offense and defense and working with timing. And getting that stagger for big damage. A mechanic that was added on FF7R.

I don't know not for everyone. I enjoyed it enough to complete and that makes it pretty good imo.

Give the PS4 remaster of FFXII a second chance... I hated the original on PS2, but the ability to completely avoid combat and also how you can manage the automatic portion of the helpers on the party (that you can rotate) made the battles very enjoyable and the tactics to beat the bosses and challenges quite unique. You just have to read a little and prepare yourself in advance and that makes the game truly great.

Yeah, I might do that. In all fairness that was a long time since I tried the game (that was on PS2!). And that was coming off FFX, which was the last usual FF (gameplay) I was used to. Hearing good things about XII, I just have to dedicate time into it lol.

It was the same with me, loved IX, liked X and the graphics (presented before I had PS2) then played XII and was a bummer. Several years later and understanding the game I enjoyed it.

This was confirmed weeks ago. 

All the Stay at Home games are up. Horizon Complete will be added mid April. 



Damn, Ratchet and Clank 2016 (currently free for all members), will get an update to be played at 60fps.

Oh yeah, just googled it and that's right! :o

60FPS patch coming to PS5 next month



Nice. I booted up R&C the other day to try it out and after playing lot of games in 60fps it didn't feel great to go back to the 'old 30. Can't wait for the patch so I can play it through.

Now Bloodborne please!



PlayStation Plus Games for April Announced!

So for April we'll be getting the following games;

- Days Gone

- Zombie Army 4: Dead War

- Oddworld: Soulstorm 

When you consider that, along with the Play At Home scheme, you'll also be getting Horizon: Zero Dawn Complete later this month too... I think this month is pretty fucking impressive to say the least! I'm really looking forward to playing Oddworld when I finally get my hands on a PS5, so getting it for free is a huge bonus! My PS5 catalogue is looking rather impressive already!

What do you guys think, yay, nay or... Pompeii, because that rhymes, right?
