Ratchet and Clank A Crack In Time

Ratchet and Clank games have captured many a gamers’ heart throughout the years, its simplistic gameplay, great story, awesome characters not to mention Ratchet and Clank themselves. I’ve played thru just about every Ratchet and Clank game including the latest in the series; Ratchet and Clank PS4 Remastered.

However, Ratchet and Clank has really made their mark in the last of their PS3 entries, Ratchet and Clank A Crack in Time. This game comes loaded with so much stuff; way more than any of the previous Ratchet and Clank games from the past. I’ve only been playing this game a few short days and I’ve fallen in love with it; it is awesome!

One of the biggest changes that you’ll notice is that Ratchet and Clank are living in ‘separate dimensions’, it gets a little confusing at first but you’ll learn why as you play. Ultimately, the game is by no means short and you’ll feel like you got bang for your buck.

As you play, you’ll also come to find out that Clank’s role in the universe is larger than himself and more important than he knows. In this post, I’ll talk about aspects of the games like Constructo Weapons, different goals, Clank on his adventure along with Ratchet’s space travel.

Constructo Weapons

Ratchet will begin the game with a Constructo Pistol which can be modified and enhanced with the Constructo Mods you find throughout your interplanetary exploration; the mods will change everything from your pistol fire to the firing chamber of your pistol. You can literally change your pistol to destroy your enemies in creative ways.

I didn’t think much of this weapon at the time I had it but as I got to changing the different parts and mods on it, it became my new favorite weapon and I’m going to tell you now that its going to be yours too. In fact, I can foresee that it being used 96% more than the other weapons that you’ll get, but no one weapon is meant to do it all.

Another aspect of this constructo weapon is that you’ll be able to change the color which is sort of huge to some because sometimes orange does get boring to look at, so you can change the weapon to be whatever color you want you. My advice, don’t have two Constructo Weapons the same color; it just seems pointless, I’m just saying.

Goals

Naturally, some games will give you some leeway to do whatever you want as long as you get to the endgame and destroy that boss; whoever they are. Some games, like this one, will give you a set of goals to accomplish before being able to move on. Now, the difference is that the goals in this game only matter to what you’re doing during the story mode.

For example, crossing Volgram Pass to get an audience with Alister Azimuth (important). Looking for the RYNO V Holo plans – not as important – But, you get the picture, if you’re on a planet looking for something or someone then chances are you’re following your goal plan to that end.

Also, I want it to go on the record that you can’t veer from your goals when you’re exploring planets; its only when you’re not like if you’re going to look for the RYNO V Holo plans (which I’d let wait until you’ve beaten the Raritanium Cup challenge at the Battleplex) then you’d be free to do so because you’re no longer held to a goal standard.

All in all, the goals on the levels are meant to keep you on track and in some cases, it is a necessary part of your adventure considering that venturing off in Ratchet and Clank games is a well-known practice.

Space travel and moon exploration

Ratchet will be doing a lot of space travel while out venturing and looking for Clank; Ratchet’s Aphelion makes a return in the game which is great because it can be upgraded to a war machine through Zoni collection. This hardly needs to be said but the Aphelion is a very powerful ship that has heat seeking missiles and powerful concussion blasters that can make mincemeat of everything from asteroids to enemy ships.

I never feel at one with the universe than I do when I’m in that ship piloting it into a moon which by the way there exists several of; the moons have Zoni along with other items on them like Gold Bolts and Constructo Mods.

I’m going to tell you now, you might get overwhelmed because you think the moon is so small and yet you can run around it a thousand times trying to find your way and sometimes you will and won’t.

Right now, I just finished the Vela Sigma, Gamma, Epsilon, Tau and Delta moons; Alpha and Beta has to wait until you’ve gotten a gadget to explore those respective moons but its worth it. Besides, in my experience, if you need a weapon or gadget to finish a particular place then you know that the payoff is going to be HUGE upon exploration.

Clank on a separate adventure

When the game gives you control of Clank, you’ll find that you’re inside the Great Clock and you’ll learn that Clank is destined to be its lord and master. Incidentally, navigating through the clock isn’t as simple or uncomplicated as it might seem.

Ratchet is here on Torren IV

I just not too long ago finished the Great Clock area and it was one of the most challenging levels I’ve faced since Sloth’s subterranean lair in Darksiders 3. Early on, it might become apparent to you that Clank has a much bigger job than Ratchet and probably will not join up with Ratchet for some time.

However, it will become obvious that Clank is on a separate adventure from Ratchet. Using Clank was a bit of a challenge but if you remember to press X three times as you’re using this Heli-pack, you’ll be able to traverse anywhere you are whether near or far. The biggest thing you might have trouble with is getting the timing but even that’s not completely hard.

Are you looking for something that’ll help you keep your controller going all night long, well charge cords for your PS3 controller is always a good piece of equipment to have especially if you’re getting a backup which you should.

Conclusion

Ratchet and Clank A Crack in Time is one of the best games in the entire series and while you got the Constructo Weapons & Mods, you’ll have no problem getting through the game. However, keep your mind on the goals but also know too that you can deviate after you clear said planet.

The space travel and moons is keep to getting powerful upgrades to your ship and weaponry, so explore fully and don’t rush because you’re going to miss a lot when you do. Pay attention to Clank on his separate adventure, you’ll learn all there is to using his new Chronoscepter and his other enhanced powers.

If you have any questions about my post or would like to know more then please feel free to send me a message and I’ll get back to you immediately. Thank you and Happy gaming.

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough

Darksiders 3 has been out for a little while and although it has really gotten many a gamer engaged, it goes without saying that it is not without its flaws; the Darksiders 3 Walkthrough. The walkthrough is and has proven to be a bit complicated to comprehend; let me explain.

Most walkthroughs usually have a good spot in the game that usually points in a specific direction regarding your next “point of interest” for lack of better phrasing. But, the walkthrough has none of that; the Hollows are truly works of art. I say that because the attacks you pull off with them is pure artistry.

In every game, a lead is usually offered as a means of exchange for something else most times, but that is not the case all the time. You might find yourself drifting while trying to figure out what to do whereas the answer isn’t always so obvious.

In this post, I will cover some aspects of the Darksiders 3 Walkthrough, the downside of it along with the Hollows and how they’re more than just powerful blankets of elemental energy. Also, I’ll talk about some tips to keep in mind and perhaps provide a lead on where you should go next.

What Walkthrough?

As I might’ve previously mentioned, most games have walkthroughs that, if you get stuck or don’t know where to go, will help you get out of said rough spot. However, none of that exist in Darksiders 3; none. In fact, on average, 76% of gamers who play this game don’t have any idea on where to go without consulting YouTube.

Start here….

One-eighth of those gamers refusing to look at YouTube for the walkthrough are walking around now as we speak trying to figure out where to go next. I can speak on this because I was doing just that not even 12 hours ago; I kept walking around trying to figure where I’m going, there was nothing to guide me onward.

However, it is a known fact that walking around blind can yield some amazing discoveries but in this game, it is deadly; deadly to the touch. I want it to go on the record that the walkthrough isn’t as reliable as it is believed to be if there is even one at all, but even if there isn’t, you can always count on the….

Hollows

The Hollows are your bread and butter in the game and although the Darksiders 3 Walkthrough is a complete and total letdown, you can rest assured knowing that the Hollows will always be your guiding light in the darkness. For example, you’ll notice a lot of spider web like barriers in certain locales.

The Flame Hollow will burn those barriers away and you can get on with your adventure, I have yet to get the Stasis or Force Hollow although I am very close to the latter; I can feel it. I want to go on record as saying that anytime you need a hint about where to go or even where to start looking for that path forward then look no further than your hollows.

Also, I want to make it known too that a lot of things in your environment can be destroyed or traversed using the power of your Hollow forms so it pays to keep a VERY CLOSE eye on your surrounding especially when there are high cliffs or a purplish wall or a waterfall; 10 times out of 10, you’ll need that respective Hollow’s power.

As much as it pains me to say this about the Darksiders 3 Walkthrough, your Hollows are your best chance at helping you figure out where to go next, but if you’re having trouble with that then I’d like to ask if you…..

Need a Lead?

Certain games will require you to pay close attention and make notes about everything going on around you because if you don’t and you miss something, it’s going to be a long and arduous road on the way back to the beginning to get that clue. However, I’ve been playing Darksiders 3 for a while now and I didn’t have a clue as to where to go before last night.

So, we all need a lead at some point. Here’s a lead on where you should go if you’re not sure where to go next. After you kill Sloth, the 3rd Sin; make your way to the Skyscraper area in the Haven locale. There you’ll come across another powerful enemy and your way forward.

Explore here, you’ll want to; the payoff is huge!

Personally, it doesn’t make any sense for the Darksiders 3 Walkthrough to leave you scratching your head on where your next destination is; I had nothing to go on and after walking around while getting killed for the last 2 hours, I came across unexplored territory in the Skyscraper locale in the Haven area. So, there you have, your lead.

And, uh, spoiler alert; the Bonelands is beyond the Skyscraper area so just a little something to look forward to as you’re adventuring and finding your way.

Tips

So, if you’re super into this game like I know most of you are then perhaps I can offer you some tips that’ll help you well on your way and help you stay alive and if we’re being honest here, keep your enemies from doing the same.

Tip #1, Master your Dodge move. You may get to a point where running around with weapons swinging hoping to kill your enemies is a recipe for disaster; mastering your dodge move will keep your enemies off balance and give you a chance to counterattack or do the Arcane Counter.

Tip #2, If you need a lead on where to go; revisit some previous areas because 9 times out of 10, you’ll discover your next destination.

Tip #3, Use your Hollow powers on your enemies; experiment with your Hollow powers vs. your enemies; some enemies will take extra damage or will become weak when dealing with a specific element. For example, in the Bonelands, enemies don’t seem to respond so well to your Storm Hollow powers.

Tip #4, Buy up all of Vulgrim’s ‘Specials’ as soon as possible because they will come in handy, I guarantee it!

Tip #5, Don’t hesitate to transform back into regular Fury and switch back to your Hollow powers, I was running around the Skyscraper area using regular Fury then went Storm Hollow Fury in the first half of the Bonelands then I went back to regular Fury for second half of the Bonelands

Tip #6, Abuse your Shards; don’t let them become decorations in your inventory, you’ll live to regret it if you do. Paintings are supposed to be stared at and admired not items that’re meant for battle.

Tip #7, Don’t undersell or underuse your weapon enhancements, they are there to help you stay alive; strengthen them as much as possible. Theirs will be a power without limits whatsoever.

Tip #8, When you’re using Attribute Points on strengthening Fury’s HP, Strength and Arcane; spend a good 10-20 Attribute Points on Fury’s Strength. Doing this will make her and her attacks a superpower then focus on her HP then Arcane.

Are you having problems with your gameplay or just want to enhance it, how about a 4k TV or at least a bigger flat screen; this way, you’ll be able to see everything in the environment in the game not to mention avoid being ambushed from behind.

Conclusion

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough is, in its purest form, a big letdown that leaves gamers running around aimlessly. However, the Hollows can be counted on to pave your way forward no matter what or where in the game you are and if you need a lead then starting back at beginning of an area can help you a great deal.

Keep in mind too that focus on enhancing Fury’s strength when you get Attribute points because it’ll help her stay alive; don’t hesitate to buy up all of Vulgrim’s ‘specials’. These could mean the difference between life and death.

If you have any questions or would like to leave me a comment regarding my post then please do and I’ll respond to you immediately. Thank you and Happy gaming.

Devil May Cry 4 Game

Devil May Cry games have come a long way and the greatness that is Devil May Cry is still continuing on their path of greatness with the latest entry in the series, Devil May Cry 4. The first time I played the Devil May Cry 4 Game, I felt a little overwhelmed because I was using a new character, Nero, who is not Dante.

However, I’ve been playing it recently and it is fraught with everything you’d expect from a Devil May Cry game; the game is great in all aspects. There are puzzles in it that really make the game pop and while the puzzles aren’t hard; they will challenge you.

Nero, the new guy, comes with his own set of moves; some that are more damaging than Dante’s. The Blue Rose, Nero’s Gun, its power rivals that of Dante’s Ebony & Ivory. The Red Queen, Nero’s sword, is powerful all on its own but can be made more powerful through the expenditure of Proud Souls.

In this post, I’ll discuss the gameplay, Nero’s Devil Bringer along with a couple of its powers and a few tips for buying stuff through the Divinity statue; also, I’ll discuss some tips you can use to stay ahead of the game.


Gameplay

The gameplay is very simplistic, your basic hack and slash; the gameplay is great to the regard that you don’t have to go through a lot of geometry or trigonometry to figure out how to use the controls or even use the combos at Nero’s disposal. The gameplay gives you enough where you’re able to play the game and enjoy it which is what many of us want.

As you adventure, you’ll find that the gameplay will get to be a little challenging but not so much to the point where you get frustrated. Nero has his gun, sword and his Devil Bringer which can be used in unison to lay the smack down on enemies especially the Frost enemies.

You’ll get acquainted with all kinds of enemies as you make your way from level to level, but at some point Nero will gain the power to Devil Trigger which is good because it complements his character and the demon in him quite well.

The gameplay associated with the Devil Trigger form is not complicated, but the overall thing to keep in mind with the gameplay is to just enjoy the game and don’t let yourself get lost in it which is kind of easy to do.

Devil Bringer and its Powers

The Devil Bringer is great, powerful and tons of enemies can be made to kneel to its power especially the Frost demons. A couple of things to keep in mind when you’re using your Devil Bringer. For one, don’t become too overly dependent on it because it can blow up right in your face.

Second, you’ll be given an Auto-Search ability after you destroy Bael on Mission 4; return to Mission 1 and work your way back while discovering secrets aplenty. Pay attention to how bright the glow is because that’ll tell you exactly how close you are to said secret.

See that glow on Nero’s arm, that’ll lead you to treasures aplenty

Also, you’ll be able to find the entrance to Secret Missions, take advantage of this; your livelihood in the game depends on it. You’ll be able to buy enhancements for the Devil Bringer, a lot of these enhancements can help you dominate the Secret Missions like Secret Mission 2, Alleyoop; Snatch 2 is all you need.

It’s in your best interest to keep an eye out for Grim Grips after you get the Evil Legacy item on Mission 2; the discoveries can very well help you a great deal.

Tips

The Devil May Cry 4 Game maybe a great game, but if you want to make your gameplay experience great then take heed to the tips I have here; use and remember them as I have. One, explore everything in every place. The things that you ignore usually end up being the key to leaving a room or destroying an enemy.

Second, don’t rush. The Devil May Cry 4 Game is massive and so is the levels within the game; take your time and fully look around; you maybe on a time limit but that time limit don’t matter none when you’re picking a level clean of items.

Third, learn your combos. This is very important because you’ll reduce your enemys’ life bar or lifeline almost in one or two fell swoops. Combos are the lifeblood of any Devil May Cry game including this one.

Fourth, when you take on Berial at the end of Mission 2; pay attention to his attacks and dodge accordingly; don’t be afraid to get in there and lay the smack down; he’s not as hard or menacing as he appears but still don’t underestimate him.

Buying Stuff

Throughout your adventure, you’ll come to realize that you’re going to need to purchase certain items from the Divinity Statue which is totally okay; we all need a little help sometimes. However, you may get to a point too where you’ll want to spend all of your money at the statue but don’t do it.

The only things that you need to buy at the Divinity Statue is one, the Blue Orbs; these extend your life meter. You’ll want to go after these and buy them all up as soon as possible. Another thing is the combos and enhancements for Nero’s arsenal. Purple Orbs, these are going to come in handy after Nero learns to Devil Trigger.

You’ll also see other items in there such as Large and Small Vital Stars along with Holy Water, don’t buy these because you’ll more than likely find them on levels that you go to. You’ll be practically blowing money on items you don’t need.

You can buy them if you want to but don’t make it a priority especially since you can become overwhelmed with items that are cluttering up your inventory.

Conclusion

The Devil May Cry 4 Game is both entertaining and fun for gamers of all ages, but you’ll find that the gameplay is simplistic which makes it easy for even beginner gamers to slide right in and get into the action. The Devil Bringer and its Auto-Search ability will make it possible to find everything you need in the game.

The Grim Grips will lead Nero to other areas within the levels he’s traversing, don’t ignore the Grim Grips if you see them hanging. Remember, take your time and don’t rush, the best stuff is found through patience and careful exploration.

Combos are the key to destroying your enemies, learn how to do them and practice because every enemy has a weakness that you can exploit using your combos. Stick to buying just the Blue and Purple Orbs, all the moves, enhancements along with upgrades to Nero’s arsenal; don’t bother buying Vital Stars or Holy Water unless you ABSOLUTELY have to.

If you have any questions or comments about my post then I’d love to know what they are and feel free to leave me a message and I’ll respond immediately. Thank you and Happy gaming.


 

R.J’s Last Minute Tip

Dante’s made a return in this game and so have the combo adjudicator statues, you’ll be able to use him to destroy his combo adjudicator statues as you adventure so keep that in mind if you happen to run into one of his before you find him which you will.

 

 

Tales of Zestiria Game, if you play any Tales of game this year then make it this one!

There has been a lot of Tales of games that did and did not make the cut with many gamers over the years; Tales of Vesperia – bad, Tales of the Abyss – decent, Tales of Destiny – horrible. However, there is one Tales of game that was created to provide endless hours of entertainment with its gameplay, Tales of Zestiria.

I’ve played my fair share of Tales of games and none of them even come close or even hold a candle to the Tales of Zestiria Game, I didn’t even take it seriously starting out because I felt its opening act was a little weak but that was quickly remedied with the awesome battle gameplay.

Many Tales of games gave you enough to work with where you got just enough power to subdue your enemies and still live another day, but Tales of Zestiria gave you that and then some along with the awesome power of the Seraphim. My post will talk about everything that makes this game great and why this RPG is worth the buy.


Bestowed ultimate power from the beginning

One of the things that make the Tales of Zestiria Game such a noteworthy buy is the fact that you’re given ultimate power in the beginning stages of the game. About a few hours into the game, less than 10 hours in, you travel to the town of Ladylake, the Aquapolis.

It is here that you meet Lailah, are made the Shepherd then a few minutes later you’re shown how to armatize to quell an enemy gang ambush. Unlike the Tales of games in the past, you don’t have to wait a long time or progress into the game a great deal before you get your hands on power that make it possible for you to get past any obstacle before you.

What I also felt that the Tales of Zestiria Game did right was the fact that battle wasn’t too hard or too easy and you didn’t have to armatize unless you needed to but at least it is enough that Lailah fights beside you lending any and all aid alongside your best friend, Mikleo.

You won’t have to wait long before Mikleo grants you the power to transform into your water armatization form which is good for dealing a lot of damage to an enemy in a short amount of time.

The Shepherd

Sorey is the chosen one, the Shepherd; he’s not just an avid and skilled swordsman, but he gains some of the power of his seraphim friends. At present, Lailah’s the only one he has access to which is fine because that’ll be his go to power after she joins him.

In the beginning, you’ll be lighting lanterns in order to get into other rooms along with burning through malevolent spirits in towns. Overtime, Sorey will come to possess all the powers of the Seraphim; you’ll also come to possess his Mystic Artes, but you won’t get those until your a little farther into the game.

The Shepherd becomes a character that you can look up to whose moral and just; your common good guy with a good head on his shoulders even though the Shepherd’s power wears on Sorey, it makes him all the more determined to conquer the power and lay to bed the weaknesses.

Sorey has good attack and defense not to mention his moves are such that you can attack and not worry about dying right off the bat, Sorey’s defense is above decent and he can take some damage. My advice for using the Shepherd, if his HP gets low, armatize immediately; it’ll save his life.

Seraphim Aplenty

As I previously mentioned, Sorey will be joined by Lailah starting out after his adventure in Ladylake, the Aquapolis. However, after a while Mikleo will join with you thereby allowing you to water armatize. The lady of the Earth element, Edna; she’ll join with you along with Zaveid, the wind elemental.

As you adventure, you’ll learn all about your Seraph’s powers and what you’ll be able to execute in battle. The best thing about armatizing with your Seraphim friends is that you’ll be able to exploit the weakness of every enemy in the game and that includes bosses.

Some advice; always, always use the power of your Seraph friends in battle because their contribution to damaging your enemies is definitely welcomed. Mikleo can heal and you can even control your Seraphim friends like you can Sorey in order to even the odds in battle.

For example, you may end up in battle with enemies who are allergic i.e. have a weakness to water or earth; you can take control of either Edna or Mikleo to destroy that enemy or enemies. Keep your options open and keep an open mind about using the Seraphs.

Armatization Form

Now, for the best aspect of the Tales of Zestiria Game; the Armatization Form. When you take the armatization form or when you armatize, you and your chosen seraph will join and you’ll take on a complete different form than you’re used to. A few things to note. For one, Sorey’s HP will be doubled or he’ll have a lot more HP than normal.

Second, his power is increased tenfold as is his defense; you’re advised to armatize as much as possible because many battles will depend on your armatization power along with the special moves that you have at your disposal.

One of my favorite things to do in any armatized form is to use the “ultimate” move of that armatization. For example, when you complete a combo in your armatized fire form (press Circle twice), press R2 and you’ll do the Divine Phoenix Blade.

Keep an eye on the artes that Mikleo learns especially the one called Elixir Vitae; you can execute this after pulling off a combo. This move will heal one of your comrades in battle which will go toward keeping them alive which you’ll want to because when it comes to battling bosses, you’ll need all hands on deck.

Conclusion

The Tales of Zestiria Game has more than proven that it is a cut above the rest in regards to gameplay, allowing you to be able to choose between using Sorey or a Seraph in battle. The Shepherd’s power is mighty boosting high attack and defense; Sorey is the last person you’ll see fall in battle.

There are seraphim in the game that you can use along with Sorey, you can use Lailah, Edna, Zaveid and Mikleo; so you’re not limited to who your go to is in battle. Remember to always armatize when you’re in battle with tough enemies and bosses because your survival will depend on it.

So what do you think of my post, what do you think of the game; leave me a message and I’ll definitely get back to you ASAP. Thank you and Happy gaming.


What is an Accumulator Game Storage Tower, the best thing to happen to PS3 and PS4 games that’s what

As a gamer, you’ll no doubt find yourself getting game after game that interests you and that’s no crime; the catch 22 is having no place to store them all especially if you’re trying games or at least doing research on a set of games that you want.

Incidentally, as more video games come out, and the more you buy, the more you’ll find it difficult to put them some place where you’ll have easy access to them while trying to keep them out of the way of pets or even siblings. My biggest problem has always been that my video game collection gets “overgrown” which is good and bad if you’re a gamer that loves collecting games.

So what if you have 10, 11, 12, 20 or even 33 games for the PS3 or PS4; have you ever felt like you want to keep collecting games but you’re running out of room regarding where you’re going to put them never mind where you want them for easy access?

Well, there is a handy little tool I discovered while I was at work one day, it changed the way that I store and access my video games forever; the Accumulator Game Storage Tower. The storage tower is, in my opinion, the best thing to happen to PS3 and PS4 games which I’ll discuss in this post.

The Accumulator Game Storage Tower

The Accumulator Game Storage Tower takes all the wonder out of where you can and should store your games not to mention that it makes accessing them a breeze. The five minutes that it takes to put it together lies in the letters on the gray tower legs, it is very simple and easy to put together.

Before I got my hands on this valuable piece of gaming tech, I was keeping my PS3 games inside of an old backpack that I used back when I was in college and I’ve been searching for a game storage item that’ll allow me to store my PS3 games so I can easily get to them.

I ran across this item in GameStop and I bought myself two because I have 26 PS3 games, I wanted to have two towers to store all the games. My advice, if you’re a gamer who is looking for a great game storage item them I suggest you get your hands on this; it is a huge lifesaver if you’re looking to store your PS3 games safely.

A must have for every gamer

The Accumulator Game Storage Tower is a must have piece of gaming tech, why; let me ask you something. How many times have you said, “I’m done collecting games”, but you find another game or two that you want. Just how often do you frequent your video game groups on Facebook, if you’re a part of any and you see a game that you suddenly become interested in?

Consider this, as long as you’re a gamer, you’re never going to stop collecting video games or buying them to add to the various collections that we gamers all have. That’s where this little beauty comes into play, the storage tower sees to it that there is always going to be room for any and all games you get. Including the ones that you saw that made you change your mind as a result.

Recently, I said the same exact thing, “I have all the best of the PS3 game library; there’s no reason for me to buy anymore PS3 games” then I came across Rise of the Argonauts and needed a place for it which the Accumulator Game Storage Tower had, it is always good to have at least two of these because you never know when you’re going to find a game that you like.

Going for double, here’s why you should

You may or may not be at the point where you’re keeping up with the current gaming trend (PS4), if you are then you’ll have no doubt either sold or are attempting to restart your PS3 game collection and you may also know which games you want off the bat. However, overtime you’ll feel like your gaming collection is beginning to grow faster than you can contain.

When that time comes, and it will, you’ll need to go double i.e. getting two of the storage towers. The rationale, one tower only holds 24 games at a time which might leave you with a sense of “emptiness”, for lack of a better term, if you have two or three games that you couldn’t quite fit on the rack.

Going for double out of the starting gate will save you tons of heartache and pain later of you having to spend extra money; now if you have more than 48 PS3 or PS4 games then you’ll more than likely have to buy another tower alongside the two that you have to, but it is totally worth it. If you don’t have this item yet, get it immediately; you’ll be thankful you did.

Rearranging your games have never been easier

At present, I have 10 PS3 games that I have yet to completely finished, I started them though; I have 16 PS3 games that I’ve beaten already. See, I have my PS3 games arranged in the order of the 10 games that I haven’t completed at the top and the 16 that I have completed at the bottom.

Incidentally, you can rearrange your games however you like but I did mine like this so I can keep track of the games that I have to complete so I can just pick out a game, sit and play it. Normally, I usually have my games in alphabetical order which, from a strategic perspective, makes it easier for me to keep track of all the games that I might want to play.

For example, if I wanted to play Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, I’d play that then I make the decision to play Dragon’s Crown i.e. then playing a game that begin with D. You can arrange them from frequently played to infrequently played by you if that’s direction that you want to go in; sky’s the limit and the only limit is your imagination. Word to ya!

Conclusion

The Accumulator Game Storage Tower is a valuable piece of video game tech that every gamer should have and the perks to possessing the item lies in your game arrangement, but make no mistake that getting double or possibly three of them will become necessary if you’re an avid game collector.

The Accumulator Game Storage Tower is perfect if you’re looking to store your PS3 and PS4 games for easy access, it is also ideal if you’re looking to get more PS4 games or you have a growing collection. So, what do you think of my post, do you have this item, if so then what do you think of it?

I’d love to know what your responses are; leave me a message and I’ll get back to you immediately. Thank you and Happy gaming.

 

Rise of The Argonauts Game, accurate greek mythological gameplay at its best

I’ve been playing video games for a long time and just when I thought that I found every good game for the PS3, I always end up stumbling on a gem. I recently picked up the game, Rise of the Argonauts at my local Disk Replay store. Now, I’ve always been a lover of Greek Mythology and this game is all about it.

There are not a lot of games that will put every bit of control in your hands, but you get to do all sorts of things with the game and the people in it. While some concepts of Greek Mythology are lost on those who don’t really respect nor understand it, it made the game a slam dunk.

Other aspects of the game that make it a worthy buy is the mention of god powers but they are not your typical run-of-the-mill walk up to a statue and gain the power type of god powers; the god powers are gained in interesting ways in the game but they are worth getting.

There is a lot to love about Rise of the Argonauts Game, but there is a thing or two that you’ll dislike about the game which I will discuss in this post.


Premise

When I first started the game, I didn’t quite get the premise until I was playing the game a little over an hour, King Jason is on a mission to find a way to bring the love of his life, Alceme, back from the dead after being struck by an arrow shot by a Blacktongue mercenary at sniper range.

Jason later recruits Hercules along with a few other people on the journey to help him accomplish his task. I’m completely enthralled with the premise because Jason will have to go all over the Grecian world in order accomplish his goal and the best part is that you’ll see key landmarks of Greece along with islands.

Storming Jason’s palace; big mistake guys!

The premise of Rise of the Argonauts will leave you on the edge of your seat with anticipation and worry especially when you’re addressing your subjects; the only thing about the start of the game that I don’t like so much is that there is too much dialog between Jason and the people he addresses but all in all, its a good game.

If you’re a gamer or are still into playing PS3 video games, get this gem; you’ll be happy you did because it is a game that you can get into especially if you’re a Greek Mythology enthusiast.

Weapons

Jason has, in Rise of the Argonauts, 3 weapons that he’ll use throughout his entire adventure, a Sword, a Spear and a Mace. Jason’s weapons can be switched in real time by pressing the R1 button, its a great way to get a weapon that you need fast, quick and in a hurry.

A collection of weapons

My advice when it comes to weapons is use the Mace on shielded enemies, use the spear on enemies at a distance or the ones that you want to dispatch at a distance and use the sword when you want to deal damage to enemies in close quarter combat. However, you can play that however you like.

I usually try to alternate between weapons so as to see which weapons work well on which enemies which you’ll find out quickly as you’re thrust in battle. Also, some weapons in the game have a special ability either passive or active that help Jason in battle with his enemies.

The biggest benefit to this is that Jason will be able to take out his enemies in creative ways using these “enchanted weapons”, but don’t lean on one weapon alone on your adventure or you’ll make the game harder than its supposed to be; consider yourself warned!

Interaction with NPCs

What I found interesting as I was playing Rise of the Argonauts was the interaction between the NPCs (Non-playable characters) and Jason. During Jason’s interaction with the different characters, you’ll get to choose what your responses are during the conversation; some of the responses make NPCs take responsibility for certain actions.

And Jason gets a cool spear to boot!

For example, Elpis, a maiden in the king’s court, doesn’t want to inform her overly worried parents (just the mom that’s worried) that she was wounded during the attack on Jason’s palace. Selecting the option that Elpis forgets her place will force her to acknowledge the truth of the matter which Jason tells her parents after the Xeno debacle.

Some of the interactions between the NPCs are among the most interesting there ever was, it is more like a conversation between people and Jason which is a great thing because it just shows how awesome it is that royalty take their people as well as their thoughts seriously.

Plus, Jason is not uppity when it comes to acknowledging or talking to his subjects which is very eye-opening; you’ll get more into the game just through this aspect alone because you can hear the thoughts of everyone in your ward.

Combat

Combat in Rise of the Argonauts is very simplistic in which you just hack and slash at your enemies to end their lives which is technically cut and dry. At some points in battle you’ll be given the option to use God powers which are given to you as you do deeds in the name of Ares, Hermes, Athena and Apollo.

Ultimately, the ‘Aspects’ option on the menu is the key to unlocking the God powers which you equip before battle or during. The God powers give Jason extra strength in battle that he can use to get an advantage over his enemies which can come in the form of Apollo’s healing light to Athena’s Lightning Seed ability.

Incidentally, Jason does take damage but from what I can see there is no life bar to which you can calculate the amount of damage that Jason is and is not taking. From an experienced perspective, it doesn’t seem like Jason can die in battle even though I’m sure he can but it just seems like he can take a lot of damage before death.

My advice is to keep an eye on Jason to see where his health is; he could be indestructible for all you know, but just be mindful of his health just the same. Also, I just remembered that the answers you give the NPCs will come in the form of colored icons that favor a specific god, Ares – red, Athena – green etc.

These colored responses favoring that specific god will go toward your learning a god power of that specific god so definitely keep an eye on that as well.

Conclusion

Rise of the Argonauts is a game that takes you back to the time and rule of King Jason of the Argonauts whose on a quest to save his beloved Alceme and bring her back from the grip of death itself. The premise revolves around Jason making the journey and getting acquainted with his crew for the upcoming voyage.

Weapons consist of a spear, a sword and a mace; some of the weapons that Jason get later will have special abilities that he can use to deal extra damage to his opponents. The interactions with the NPCs can be “tailored” to the benefit of Jason or the NPCs as well as the harsh reality of the response given to the NPCs like Elpis.


Combat is simple and easy to comprehend as is your normal hack and slash, god powers are given to you based on which god you favor which lie in the Aspect menu on the option screen. So what are your thoughts on this game, have you played it before and if so, what do you think of it; do you think it is an overrated gem or underrated?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter regarding my post, if you have any questions then leave me a message and I’ll get back to you ASAP. Thank you and Happy gaming.

 

 

Shining Force 2 Characters, don’t bother with some of them and that goes for a few others

I’ve been playing Shining Force 2 since I was 16 years old and I’ve grown to love the game a lot, it’ll always be one of my favorite games of all time. The best aspect of the game is the promotion feature and being able to promote your characters to more powerful forms via promotion items i.e. Warrior Pride, Secret Book etc.

But, what about the wallflowers, characters who join midpoint to late in the game; are they worth the time management and expenditure to make them strong? This is a question I asked myself recently and actually took the time to try to make things happen with the characters like using them in different battles to assess their strengths.

For example, I used Janet and Elric (Snipers) on flying enemies i.e. Pegasus Knights; if I need extra healing power along with Sarah’s then I put Karna (Vicar) in. However, there are characters who you’ll be able to recruit later on who might or might not be worth it. I’m talking about from Mitula’s Shrine onward.


There are also characters from Creed’s that you can recruit just before you enter the Nazca Ship heading to Grans, and they are part of what I’ll discuss in this post along with a few others and why you should and should not bother. For starters, I’ll be talking about……

Creed’s Weaklings

Around the time that you first journey to Creed’s Mansion, you’ll have 3 objectives. The first, get out of mini town (quote unquote), second, get an audience with Creed then pick a character as a sign of good faith to Creed seeing as how his idiotic sidekick forgot to lock the door.

I always pick Karna because her healing and Aura powers will come in handy at different times throughout the game. Now, as for Eric, Randolf and Tyrin; I usually go back for them just after Frayja opens the gate to Moun. However, I made the choice to go back for them so they wouldn’t be stuck at Creed’s.

However, I saw no point in using them in battle and trying to get their levels up on par with everyone else because since you’re recruiting them so late in the game, they’re not going to stand a chance against any of the upcoming threats.

And, if we’re being honest here, the prism flower battle makes the battle with Zalbard look like a trip to Brookfield Zoo. Creed’s weaklings will die as a result and be a huge liability in battle; don’t do it and don’t bring them into battle with you.

Taya

Taya is a character you save in Mitula’s Shrine after you beat Zalbard, it’s sort of interesting how she’s just a room away to the right of your battleground in Mitula’s Shrine and she’s in stone. Taya can be used to accomplish great things and that means giving her the Protect Ring, using its special ability to increase her defense so she can stay alive.

The potential here, am I right

But, the question is, is Taya worth putting in battle to strengthen her; the answer, up to you. On the one hand, Taya is worth it because she’s recruited early enough where bringing her into battle can make a big difference as long as you keep her safe and having a back up Sorcerer on the team is a big plus.

On the other hand, Taya may be more of a liability because she joins midpoint of the game which can mess with your characters’ levels if you’re looking to help her get stronger and stay alive. So ultimately the choice is up to you, but she’s not a bad character overall so really, think about it!

Nazca Ship, before

Before you enter the Nazca Ship area in Moun’s backyard, you can return to Creed’s to get Tyrin, Eric and Randolf; recruiting them doesn’t mean that you have to put them in the party. In fact, you shouldn’t because you’re going to cause more disaster to befall your team vs. helping them.

Worth it!

At this point, a few characters have joined promoted before you make your way to Moun and ultimately Nazca. Higins (Paladin), Jaro (Pegasus Knight extraordinaire), Gyan (Gladiator). You can use these characters as you see fit whether you’re putting them in to help strengthen them or help someone else.

Gyan is an excellent Gladiator, his starting stats are awesome so if you’re looking for some extra muscle then don’t hesitate to use him. Higins is a good candidate around the time you recruit him but if you wait to use him then he just stays on the bottom.

Jaro is subjective to the point where you can use him as long as your team isn’t that far ahead of him in levels otherwise like Higins, it’ll be pointless. So my advice with the aforementioned characters, weigh your options. Don’t hesitate to use these characters to see where their strength is so you can make a logical choice.

Recruitable Characters on Grans

There are more than a few recruitable characters on Grans shortly after you arrive; one of them is Sheela, a Master Monk. Sheela is strong but at the point in the game you recruit her, her strength will pale in comparison to everyone else. Chaz is your next “find”. Chaz is good in the aspect that he’s versed in all elemental magic.

But, he only has Blaze 2 and Freeze 3 starting out; I wouldn’t bother because since you have Kazin on your side with his elemental gods then you don’t really need Chaz. Plus, he’s a late game recruit which means that you’ll have your hands full trying to get him up to strength which I don’t recommend.

Lemon, Red Baron, is your last recruit. Lemon, I think, would be a great asset only because he’s a trained fighter and he comes equipped with the Dark Sword which is a great weapon for him because it complements his vampiric nature of sorts. Ultimately, I probably wouldn’t put Lemon in because you already have Jaha and Gyan so that would make Lemon useless.

However, if you are going to use him then I would suggest using him from the moment you get him; he has excellent defense which is definitely needed at that point in the game.

Conclusion

There are Shining Force 2 Characters that are and are not worth spending time strengthening, but for those who are like Lemon, Gyan, Jaro, possibly Taya; these are the ones you want to focus on early so they’ll be super powers by the Prism Flower battle.

Characters like Eric, Randolf, Sheela, Chaz, Tyrin and possibly the Red Baron are not worth using late game only because they require more work to be able to be on par with everyone else. So what are your thoughts on my post, I’d love to know what you think. Leave me a message and I’ll get back to you. Thank you and Happy gaming


R.J’s Last Minute Tip

Rohde, who you’ll get after you’re given the cannon, will become a Brass Gunner; don’t use him because his power stays low even in the post game battle plus, his stats hardly change.

Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning Main Quest, but present progress is important too!

I’ve played a lot of PS3 games from God of War III to Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters and many, many more. However, I picked up a game a few months ago and it has come to be one of my greatest buys as far as PS3 games go; the game is called Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.

Now, something dawned on me after playing this game for a couple of hours; it is and plays similar to Drakan: The Ancients’ Gate (PS2), a great game in its own right. One of the things that captivated me about Kingdoms of Amalur is the powers. Many of the powers you gain in the game strengthen your ability with a certain weapon as well as magic.

The game gives you plenty of opportunities to stray from your main quest and do some sidequests which will put gold or other items in your pockets such as healing items along with weapons. I’ve grown to love the game because you can pretty much do whatever you want.


Another aspect about the game I love is the reckoning mode or reckoning form as I call it which is an ultimate form of sorts that let you deal damage to your enemies then wipe them out with a button press. I’ll discuss my recommended weapon, my progress at present along with points I’m putting toward which of my 3 categories, Sorcery, Might and Finesse.

At Present

At present, I’ve put the main quest on hold and decided to do a few of the sidequests; I’ve done more than a few not to mention that I’ve managed to shortened what looks like a long list. However, at the present time I’ve got my pick of going to House of Ballads to join Alyn Shir to talk about the matters at hand involving myself

or

I could journey back to Didenhil and find Agarth, talk to him then follow whatever road he has me on whereever that takes me; I’m really enjoying the main quest, I’m learning a lot. But, I do notice that the main quest is all about finding out who I really am in the game so the main quest tends to go kind of quickly.

I can say with 100% certainty that I don’t regret buying the game and if you don’t have this game in your collection; get it, you’ll enjoy it and there’re tons to do in the game as well along with the fact that you’re going to meet a lot of interesting characters and learn a lot of things.

The Sidequests

The sidequests in the game will have you traveling transcontinental and then some, but they are among some of the best in the game; the rewards for their completion is very worthwhile. Take the sidequest ‘The Commendation’, I love how this sidequest took me to the area where the Krast Brothers were along with other Red Legion Thugs.

I was able to wipe them all out then continue on and get my way in Shieldring Keep; the sidequests are pretty simple and will require that you save your game before you start because then it’ll be easier to get back to your target point when you have to.

One thing about the sidequests is that you will be doing a lot of walking around unless you’ve unlocked the location of a specific locale in which case, you’ll be able to fast travel which is sort like a teleport to the locale of sorts; definitely worth it if you don’t feel like walking across the plains especially if you’re low on health or are cursed with Mana Drain shortage.

My Recommended Weapon

There are TONS of weapons in the game; everything from the Longsword to a Sceptre to a Greatsword even a Hammer. Now, my recommended weapons is an elemental staff and an elemental Longsword. I don’t mind other Longsword weapons that are not elemental in nature but the element add-on is a great help especially for dealing with giant spiders and their underlings who are allergic to fire.

The Hammers are great weapons for dealing with Trolls and Juttun, I like the Hammer’s amazing attack power but I can still strike down everything from a Juttun to a Troll to a Niskaru Tyrant with a Longsword; in fact, I have. Also, I have 3 elemental staves; one of fire, one of electricity and one of ice.

Your weapons are whatever you want them to be; you don’t have to just stick to just a Longsword or a Longbow or even Faeblades or Daggers; you can have whatever you want or if you want you can have a weapon for all seasons i.e. to combat all types of enemies.

I have thought about doing this myself but I rather just have my Longsword and elemental staves, I feel like they’re all I really need to conquer all the areas in the Faelands including Erathrell and Rathir. I may change my mind about the weapons but just like in Drakan: The Ancients’ Gate, I stick to one or two particular weapons.

Sorcery, Might, Finesse; focus on 3 and not just one

When you’re given “points”, you’ll be able to put them into 3 categories or spread 3 points out over one category each whether its Sorcery, Might or Finesse. I’m focusing more on my Sorcery skill tree because I’m growing my character into a sorcerer/warrior. Might has some good spells as well such as the Quake ability and Meteor.

The problem with spells like Meteor is that they’re accessible later on in the game; much later in the game. However, when it comes to Finesse, you’ll have to contend with the choice of which sub-category you want to put your points into whether it is daggers, faeblades etc.

But, you can strengthen other areas of the Finesse category to access powerful moves for your weapons such as giving your arrows the ability to possibly poison your enemies along with other great things. The point is that you don’t have to limit yourself to just strengthening one category or one weapon.

Be imaginative, don’t hesitate to experiment with trying different weapons; I’ve already tried just about every weapon and I’ve made my choices regarding my weapons.

Conclusion

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a great game where you’re able to create your character the way you want them to be and carry the kind of weapons that you want to as well. At Present, I’ve made a lot of progress and cleared a lot of sidequests; be patient despite the intercontinental walk from place to place, it can get a little boring.

Focus your skill points into Sorcery, Might and Finesse but don’t forget that focusing on one could put a damper on the others. So, put one skill point into each of the categories or spells within the categories so you can get the most out of it.

So what are your thoughts on my post, is Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning a good game or just an over-exaggerated Action/Adventure game that is as old and useless as time itself; are you playing it or forgot about it? Leave me a comment and I’ll get back to you. Thank you and Happy gaming.


Odin Sphere Leifthrasir accessories, whether its a power stone or star pendant, you don’t have to buy them

If you’re a gamer that has played and beaten or are just playing Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, you’ll no doubt remember all the accessories that you find in the stages like a star pendant, shield ring, iceproof charm etc. However, these same items can be bought from the various vendors throughout the levels you travel to.

But, as many of you also know that spending money in this game in different parts of it can be very beneficial to the character you’re using. For example, if you need money for a HP boost then you might direct your attention to either the Pooka Kitchen or Maury’s.

Most accessories in the game are very powerful and has secondary and tertiary effects that boost your defense stat. What if you feel like you need more defense than you originally thought; would you be more or less in a bad position on your current game’s difficulty?


I’ve been playing the game long enough to know that it is so easy to become so enamored with building your defense that nothing else matters. The thing is though, buying high priced accessories from the vendors is not always practical as I will discuss in this post along with where else you could spend your money and what else to spend it on.

What used to be

When I first started playing Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, I had already known about the immediate threats and obstacles as well as enemies in the game from playing the game’s predecessor, Odin Sphere for PS2. When I got into playing Odin Sphere Leifthrasir seriously, I bought all of my accessories from the vendors.

I did this because I was always under the impression that the vendor-issued accessories were more powerful but it also meant that I had to spend more money, money that I could’ve been blowing on other things like material vials to make elixirs or elemental potions like Whirlwind, Volcano, Cyclone etc.

Whenever I found an accessory on a level, I would always sell it. My advice, when you find an accessory in a level or if you find two, don’t sell them under any circumstance. The rationale, the accessories you find get more powerful as you progress in the game. In the early parts of the game, you’ll find accessories that’ll give you a 5+ defense boost.

By the time you get to Volkenon’s Lava Pit or even Titania Capital, you’ll find accessories that give you a 30+ defense boost. What I’m saying is, be patient and play the game.

The accessories in the levels

The accessories in the levels is the key to your stalwart defense, it goes without saying that buying the accessories is a better course of action given whereever you’re going in the game, but you’re practically throwing money away when you could be using it for something else.

It took me a little while before I finally realized that the items that you buy from the vendors is powerful and will bestow you with the same effects as the accessories you find in the levels. The difference is that the accessories you find in the levels are ‘FREE!’ That’s right, that’s the be all, end all.

You can spend boo coo bucks on the accessories that the vendors have for sale but it is always going to be a fixture in the back of your mind of whether or not you’re doing more than you should; that thought has entered my mind more than once when I was playing the game recently.

My advice, stick to finding and equipping the items you find in the levels; they are all you need to keep from taking lethal damage from your enemies. And, if we’re being honest here, the difficulty of the game complements the difficulty of the level; they’re not going to sic a lv. 40 monster on you and you’re only a lv. 15.

Don’t spend money you don’t have to

The accessories at the vendors may get you to a point where you might become tantalized by its defense boost and its overall effect which is okay if you’re into shiny things or objects as it were. However, spending money you don’t have to is still a really for real possibility as many of us gamers know.

Save your money and come here

Instead of spending money on that accessory that you feel is going to save you or protect you, I’d blow it on other things like Maury’s Kitchen (hit the bell). Also, the vendors have food items that you can and should buy for the recipes that you find for Maury; the meals that Maury makes are among the most elegant and potent in the entire game.

Also, the shrimp is going to become available and it is going to be needed in many recipes that you’ll also find if you made the decision to save the food item for your next roundabout with Maury. Don’t get too caught up in spending money on the accessories that the vendors are selling.

There are other items that require your attention like certain food items that you’ll need to complete recipes which should be adhered to because your defense will mean nothing if you’re not growing your HP pool. Think about it!

Pooka Kitchen

My favorite place in the game, it is a haven, a sanctuary and an all around great place to blow ALL of your cash and coins. Pooka Kitchen is THE place to taste the finest dishes in the game and spend a good fortune doing so. The reason, your HP total will grow substantially.

If you’re still hellbent on buying accessories from the vendor then my advice is that you don’t spend all of your money because anytime you see that blue portal, I advise you to enter it and spend everything that you have on the food there because you’ll come out of there feeling stronger and more powerful.

Take it from me, Pooka Kitchen is worth the investment not only because you can a great meal with some dessert to boot, but you can also eat the same meal more than once and the Ariel and Commemorative coins are the ‘big game’ when you go to Pooka Kitchen.

Don’t forget to go to Rabbit Cafe too, their desserts are just as potent as Pooka Kitchen’s meals and dinners; that’s worth the monetary expenditure; mind this always.

Conclusion

The accessories you find within the levels start off weak which might drive one to think about investing in the vendor brand accessories. However, doing this will only break you in the long run and your monetary supplies will be diminished. Seek the accessories in the levels, they get more powerful as you progress in the game.

Don’t spend money you don’t have to because that money can go toward Pooka Kitchen and Rabbit Cafe; building your defense is good but having a great amount of HP to back it is better. What do you think of my post on the game, do you think I’m right or wrong, are you simply neutral? Leave me a message and I’ll get back to you immediately. Thank you and Happy gaming.


R.J’s Last Minute Tip

I made a video to further emphasize my point that you don’t need a big defense to conquer simple enemies. Observe!

PS4 External Hard Drive Upgrade 2tb, the necessity is real

Playstation 4 has come far in the 5 years that it has been out and sold in stores, it has become one of the biggest game products in the nation; its safe to assume that it has surpassed the PS3. Although the PS4 has become known as gaming perfection, it has, without a doubt, a flaw in its design which may or may not be an issue to gamers.

Incidentally, the PS4 comes with the biggest storage drive in the gaming realm and it is far bigger than the PS3s ever were. 1 TB or terabyte is a lot of space on a hard drive for a medium-sized gaming console, but the true power of the hard drive lies in its storage ability.

Many of you, myself included, has made the decision to have all of their PS4 games downloaded to your PS4s and while that is totally optional per gamer, it has become somewhat of a trend; a trend many gamers are 100% supportive of if they have children and pets.


However, what happens when all you want to do is keep your games on the hard drive, but don’t have enough space; there is a solution which I will discuss in this post.

PS4 1 TB hard drive

As many gamers know, every standard issue PS4 comes with a 1 TB hard drive which can be seen as more than enough space if you don’t care about how many game you have downloaded on your hard drive along with game saves. Of course, the downside to the 1 TB hard drive is that the space doesn’t seem to be enough for gamers.

With each game that comes out, the hard drive space on the hard drive gets smaller and smaller; the games’ save data grows bigger and bigger. While this isn’t a problem by no means, it can mean that you’ll find yourself downloading games to your PS4 less because of the Megabyte it consumes.

At present, most PS4s have a little under 900 MB per ‘preferential use’ (for lack of a better term) after all the out of box downloads get done. This might come off as a lot of space if many of the games out now don’t really appeal to you or even if they do but you hardly ever play.

PS4 External Hard Drive Upgrade 2tb might be a little pricey but a necessary evil if you’re going to continue to download your games onto your PS4; I encourage you to actually.

Why you need to upgrade

You might be thinking that ‘I don’t think I’ll need to upgrade to a 2tb’ or ‘I’ll just get another PS4 to house more games’. Although these are valid assumptions, it is been made painfully clear that with the games you buy you’re going to need more space especially if you have no plans to buy anymore disk games.

One of the biggest reasons to upgrade to a 2tb is because more space is better, it goes without saying that spending money on an external hard drive upgrade is a lot cheaper than buying a whole PS4 especially if the one you have is still technically new.

Games out these days like Red Dead Redemption 2 consumes so much space where it might become necessary to upgrade especially if you’re going to get the DLC (Downloaded Content) which consumes even more space on the PS4 hard drive.

You might not think you have to upgrade your hard drive but if you’re going to play games like Final Fantasy XV then you’ll be happy to have the upgrade.

How much is too much

Is there such a thing as too much space or does the rule not apply when you’re trying to get and download every game you can think of that you want on your PS4; that was me once upon a time, but I usually tell myself ‘one or two now then the rest later’.

There is no such thing as too much space when you’re upgrading because since when has any game you buy, download and save on your PS4 consumes little to no space; if we’re being honest here, it can be theorized that 2tb might not be enough for gamers especially those that play online.

In my opinion, the PS4 games that you’re buying and downloading are going to last you a lifetime so it is worth investing in a little more space on your PS4; the extra hard drive storage space is going to be a welcome addition to the console in that you won’t have to work harder than you have to in order to get your games backed up on your PS4.

Personally, I’ve heard gamers upgrade to a 4 and/or 8tb external hard drive because they have many games on their PS4 which has begun to weigh heavily on the storage on their console.

Take time to consider this

Installing a new external hard drive within the PS4 is the one thing that most of you probably know how to do but when is it really a good time to change out the hard drive within the PS4, you’re down to no space left, when you need that extra 300 MB for a game or even when you’re just buying it and think it is a good idea to do early on.

Whatever the case, if you’re going to change out the PS4 hard drive then just know that you are going to have to open up your PS4 in order to make the change. Before I go on, its worth noting that if you’re not feeling so confident about doing it alone or fearful that you might mess up something then I suggest getting the procedure done at the place you bought it.

To some, changing over the hard drive is easy and for many of you, it may be the hardest thing that you’ve ever done or ever will do but if you really need the space that badly then I suggest getting it professionally done so the liability is on the store alone and not you. Think about it.

Conclusion

Buying a PS4 External Hard Drive Upgrade 2tb is a great idea if you’re looking to strictly keep your games on the PS4 alone and not buy any disk games. PS4 1TB hard drive is standard issue but it can come across to the gamer as not being enough hence the upgrade.

The reasons why you need to upgrade to a 2tb is unique to you as a gamer but it is also worth noting that you may just want to so there’s no issue of it later on. There is no such thing as too much space when upgrading to 2tb because some have gone beyond 2tb to a 4 and 8tb respectively.

Take the time to consider why you want to upgrade before doing so and make sure as well that you’re not trying to do it yourself if you’re not confident in your ability to do so. If you have any questions about my post then please leave me a message and I’ll get back to you. Thank you and Happy gaming.
