    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    I’m considering it. Like I said, I got it mainly for PS1 & so far, all of my PS1 games have transferred onto it & play fine. PSP & Vita are a bonus, & I didn’t have many of those games in digital form anyway. I’ve looked into hacking the Whitelist to allow all the PSN’s available Vita, PSP & PS1 games to run & it looks relatively painless, & as it doesn’t allow piracy Sony seem unlikely to take action against it.

    These licensing messes are the reason why I don’t trust online account systems & prefer the closed box approach of the mini classic consoles. Take for instance Resident Evil 2. It’s not on the online store but I can still download & play it, but I have no idea if that’s something that will always be the case or if Capcom can simply remove/disable the title whenever they wish.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    So far, every PS1 game I've downloaded from my PSN account has worked. This includes: Alundra Castlevania: Symphony of the Night Final Fantasy V Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy VIII Final Fantasy IX Resident Evil 2 I've also added 2 games from the PSN Store accessed directly through the device, which you’d think would all work with no issues, & these ones certainly do: Metal Gear Solid Tomb Raider 1 There's a list here of all the PS1 games that are confirmed to work on the PSTV, which come to just over 200. I don't think all of these are available from the store & there are some omissions that the PlayStation Classic lineup has such as Tekken 3 & Intelligent Cube, but I think the selection covers pretty much all the bases overall.
  4. There was a slight problem with Amazon & my card, which i'm kicking myself for not catching, but after correcting now says will be delivered on Wednesday. Oh well. I had hoped to take the Switch & Let's GO with me on holiday next Monday, but I can wait until I get back. The part that interests me a lot is that apparently the Pokeball + can be used with Pokemon GO to get steps, hatch eggs & automatically spin Pokestops, which sounds much more convenient than having to constantly micromanage my phone when i walk the dog or go to town for shopping.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    The one game i was looking forward to trying out the PlayStation Classic was Jumping Flash. It's available on the Online Store for £4, so at that price i'll give it try regardless of how well it holds up today, & it'll also bring me closer to the 'time capsule of the PSOne Library' idea i wanted the Classic for. There's a number of games like this. Ones I missed from their original release or otherwise regarded as 'Classics'. I'm not going to go mad though. I still have doubts of how well the PSTV will serve as a 'Time Capsule' considering it's ties to Sony's Online/Account structures, which despite allowing me to re-download stuff that's no longer available (Resident Evil 2) I still don't entirely trust.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    The PSTV arrived, I just plugged in my Dualshock 4, logged into my PSN account & so far every PSOne game I've downloaded to it works, & what's more, there's a tonne more available on the built-in Online Store including the first 4 Tomb Raiders. This is my PS Classic now, & the ability to play most PSP & Some Vita games on it too is a nice bonus.

    Detective Pikachu - demo available!

    I haven't actually finished Detective Pikachu on the 3DS, as much like a fine wine, I'm taking my time with it & savouring the experience, playing a chapter every week or 2. Without spoiling the ending, can anyone tell me if the game concludes in a way that leaves the door open for a sequel or continuation?

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - December 7th

    Nintendo do seem to be on somthing of a roll when it comes to their reveals, Zelda, Mario, Smash, etc, & I hope this continues. I think I like the new, shrewd, Nintendo. Though I do of course reserve the right to take that back should Nintendo start displaying the arrogance & dismissiveness that always seem to infect a game company when they get too successful.

    My phone is a superthin piece of glass & metal that when I put it in a case, turns into an actually usable device that I can properly hold. This drive to eliminate Bezels entirely makes no sense to me. It's like they're designing these things to be used by robots instead of actual Human beings...

    Detective Pikachu - demo available!

    The thing I liked most about the Detective Pikachu setting was how it focussed on the Pokemon world in a way that the mainline games didn’t. It wasn’t all about catching & battling them all (that’s what the mainline games are for) & Tim & Detective Pikachu’s adventures & investigations were much more compelling as they navigated through a world that Pokemon actually lived in alongside Humans & the stories that could be told through that. The movie looks like it continues that theme, & I’m glad it’s an angle that they are continuing to explore & I hope they return to, both in games & other media.

    Detective Pikachu movie

    I loved the Detective Pikachu game & I would have gotten the Amiibo if it wasn’t 3 times bigger for no apparent reason & therefore would look out-of-place in my Amiibo collection. I also chose Let’s Go Eevee over Lets Go Pikachu because I cant look at Pikachu now without thinking about his Detective incarnation. So yeah, I like this take on Pikachu & I hope they do more with it, & this movie looks like a good step in that direction.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - December 7th

    I love how in that new trailer, Inkling has the Smash logo in their eye just like in the first teaser, but is now into it just like all the others.

    I quite liked the idea of having the Map/Inventory data easily viewable without interrupting the game, so I tried to use the iPad apps for both Assassin's Creed 4 & Fallout 4. Neither worked properly, so I just gave up. If developers don't like the idea, is that why they don't get it to function properly, or is it because it just doesn't function properly that they don't like the idea?

    I’ll still be interested in the verdict from the hacking community as soon as they get their hands on one & pull it apart. I very much doubt Sony will go out of their way to block such modification, but I also don’t think they’ll make it easy either, by giving the device much more memory than the 20 games require, for instance.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Same here, though the only one I could find was £75. Still better value than the PS Classic though, as my research assures me that I will be able to download the PSOne games I have registered to my PSN account & they'll work.
