  • Enjoy the show!

  • Satiate my thirst, Bloodborne!

  • Any updates on when we’ll know if the PSN Bloodborne pre-order will release midnight PST or EST? Contemplating keeping store pre-order or going digital.

    Absolutely cannot wait for it since Demon’s Souls is my all time favorite.

  • bloodborne psn avatars please Ryan :)

  • We are Borne by the Blood.

    …Except me, because Bloodborne (and the Souls series) isn’t really my cup of tea. I prefer the JRPGs!!

  • There was another idol game released for a PlayStation platform outside of Japan not so long ago – Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection for PS Vita. As it happened, it was the first Vita Nepgame to be developed, as well as the last title in that series to be published in the West by NIS America rather than Idea Factory International.

    Although that game is partly a spoof of the overall concept – apparently the reason why you (the protagonist in PP) are called upon to act as a producer is that you are supposed to be an expert at playing other idol sim games in the real world…

    Speaking of Neptunia, the first game in the series for PS4, Victory II, will be out in Japan next month. It hasn’t been announced for a Western release by IFI just yet, but I imagine it’ll only be a matter of time before that happens.

  • Any Rainbow Skies info? Release Date?

  • @Blkant

    One of the ad panels in the Coming Soon section of the PS4 store says Bloodborne will be out on midnight Eastern.

  • Suggestions for PS3

    1. Another 99 cent indie flash sale with some older titles such as Journey, Flower, and Cubixx HD.
    2. Best of Playstation Network vol. 2.
    3. Wish list feature for the PS Store. Filters for the Download List. Ability to delete trophies and avatars. Ability to change your name. Ability to delete, edit, or respond to comments on the PS Blog with filters to organize the comments to your preference.
    4. Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, Resident Evil, Monopoly Deal/Plus, Slender: The Arrival, Valient Hearts: The Great War, Skydive: Proximity Flight, Okami HD, Derrick the Deathfin, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, Resident Evil 4, and Beyond Good & Evil For PS Plus. I’m planning on getting PS Plus pretty soon to grab this month’s games.
    5. Patiently waiting for PS Now subscription service.
    6. Link to the new PS Gear Store on the Blog and console main menu. Hoping to see more of Journey, Flower, LBP, Beyond: Two Souls, and Heavy Rain. Thanks for listening

  • #5/Tjoeb123:
    Well, technically, it’s a JRPG… I know what you mean, but ok. I’m glad and sad at the same time for (me) having a huge range of game genres I like.

  • Will this game actually have Stereoscopic 3D support, and a real actual Manual inside the case like what we got with the best PS3 games last gen, or should I just wait for it to hit the bargin bin, (or get it used on eBay for $20), like I did with all my other games on PS4 so far? I mean if your selling the game for the same cost as last gen, you better give what we got last gen. Otherwise, I can wait it out like the other games.

  • I almost thought you were implying Bloodborne had Morpheus support!

    Ryan I still can’t get over your perfect “Rrrresident Eeeevil” impression, you should intro every episode of the podcast in that voice. Nick should also do the rest in his Batman voice.

  • seriously that would be the most jizzworthy podcast ever..

  • Disgaea 2 sale please! Oh.. sorry ;)

    I am so Bloodtorne (see what I did there? huh? didja?). It looks absolutely sic but I still have 50+ hours to go jus to wrap up DA:I and Mordor. Plus I have never played a Souls series because of the sluggish nature. But anytime I see a trailer on this game, I want it!

  • playstation we need games here is one called hhour

  • Another utterly fantastic show, guys! Your vegetable talk was quite the fortuitous coincidence, as I was prepping some roasted beets and fennel while listening. oh, MY!
    Also, I completely agree with Sid, in that if the kale in front of me is not in the form of a kale chip, I’ll pass.
    It really is the vegetable that just wishes it tasted as good as spinach.

  • Once again, fantastic show gentlemen.

    The kale bits had me rolling.

    I was sorely disappointed to not hear any Final Fantasy Type-0 HD and/or Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae talk… especially from Jake and Ralph.

    Ralph is right on target with Heavy Rain. He remembers the baby scene vividly. I got the platinum in that game which was very easy but required replaying many chapters countless times so I will NEVER forget…

    Steve’s desk sounds like fun. Nothing like organized clutter. lol.

    One last thing gentlemen, this show is in desperate need of some Better Call Saul discussion.

    Thanks for the laughs.

    p.s. I live about 2 hours from Chicago and no one talks like Al Capone anymore.

  • Another great show. Great talk about Morpheus. Wish I was in the US to be able to go to a convention and try out before it´s released.
    Very excited for bloodborne next week.

  • I am very upset and disappointed with Sony’s inability and/or willingness to help customers.

    My account got hacked one way or another. How is immaterial at this point.

    Whomever stole my account, also deactivated my PlayStations. When I got my account back, and went to use it — I was told my PS could not be activated because I already had 2 activated. When I went to try and deactivate it on the website I was told “You have deactivated your devices recently and cannot use this feature at this time.”

    So I contacted support, who told me that I would have to wait six months to deactivate and reactivate the consoles.

    Six months.

    They told me they could not help me.

    So now I am stuck with a PlayStation Plus subscription that will expire before I can use it again. What do you think the odds are they I will buy another one next year??? I’ve had one for 4 years now — and guess what — if Sony can’t reactivate my console for me I’m done with Sony. I’ll give my PlayStations away before I’ll spend another dime on Sony products that can just be stolen away, and not be returned to me even though Sony has the ability to help — they just won’t.

    Thanks Sony

  • O.M.G. This is THE funniest episode so far this year!!!! “A STELLAR LAST LEVEL”
