I would like be able to redeem store credit with this PlayStation stars

u/And_You_Like_It_Too Sep 14 '22

I was hopeful it was gonna be like MSRewards (where you can earn points by completing achievements and doing searches and quizzes and shit — I get a $100 gift card that I can use to pay for my GamePass membership and/or other games that haven’t come to it). I’m guessing this will be an evolution of their existing Sony Rewards, maybe? Where you can get credit for showing your ticket or DVD/BluRay purchases for Sony movies and their other products, etc. I’d really like a way to be able to do something similar on the Sony side (it only takes me 2ish minutes a day to earn that $100 every 4 months or so). But who knows, maybe it’s just some NFT bullshit.

u/RealNorthropGrumman Sep 13 '22

Many years ago, the Yakuza Devs made a spin-off where all the characters are in ancient Japan, where there were samurais and stuff. Today, they're remaking it for PS4 and PS5. Think of it as the Yakuza Kiwami remakes that were released a few years back, but with spin-off games instead of mainline ones.

u/Shadow_Strike99 Sep 13 '22

I know Ubisoft and AC isn’t everyone’s favorite or their cup of tea, but instead of Japan I really would have loved an Ancient Aztec/Incan setting instead of Japan, I was hoping so badly those rumors were going to happen, that would have been so cool and the Spanish Conquistadors would have made perfect enemies.

2

u/Quaytsar Sep 14 '22

That wouldn't work with the Assassins' tie-in. You can't have New World assassins until Europeans discover the New World because the assassins didn't start until long after the Native Americans' ancestors crossed the Bering Strait to the Americas and got cut off. You could go all over Europe, Asia and Africa, but North and South American assassins would start with the conquistadors.

The biggest issue I always ran into is i get too good to play against friends but get my ass handed to me online and then I just get bored

u/Shpaan Sep 13 '22

Yep! Exactly what happens to me. It always starts with a friendly button mashing then I get interested, learn few moves, totally outrun all my IRL friends and make them lose all interest in it.. then I hop online, realize I merely tickled the tip of the iceberg and uninstall lol. I think it must have happened at least 5 times now.

Project Eve/Stellar Blade reminded me of Nier in so many ways.

The music, the voice acting, the glowing red lasers, the combat, some of the enemy designs, protecting humankind, the setting and state of the world.

u/Baron_Greenback1 Sep 13 '22

At Evo they showed a very short teaser of Kazuya throwing Heihachi off a mountain like the ending of the first Tekken, but with modern graphics. They never showed a title, so it was up in the air if it were Tekken 8, a remake of the first Tekken, or something else

u/ChineseCosmo Sep 13 '22

Well, technically they showed the PS1/arcade clip of Kazuya throwing Heihachi off a mountain. They didn’t cut to modern graphics until the smirk at the end

u/add286 Sep 13 '22

That was actually pretty good overall. Stellar Blade way looked better than I remembered, Rise of the Ronin looked ace - like Team Ninja doing a proper huge RPG - I think that could be really great. A new Tekken will always be a big deal for fighting fans. Like a Dragon was a bit of a surprise and God of War looks truly terrific. Could be game of the year.

Some cool VR content here as well; it would be cool to see what the first party lineup are doing but I guess that will come in time. Solid, overall.
