Don't you hate it when you pre-order a game, and they end up gutting your copy by mistake? Ugh! May 26, 2017 at 9:52 PM

        Hell yeah. That happened to me twice in a row years ago. First with Ys Seven then again with Ys Chronicles. I usually only cut the top plastic to keep the box in good shape so I was mad lol. That's about the time I stopped buying at Gamestop. Plus the games weren't new at that point.

        I have a feeling we will see a Joy Con released with a regular D Pad later. I don't think this current one was an attempt to revolutionize it. The reason it doesn't have a standard D Pad is so that when you use the Joy Cons as two controllers each person has an analog stick and 6 button controller. It is weird to use it as a D Pad, but works well as intended. I do hope we see the D Pad Joy Con though.

        To be fair they may shut it down completly for me, PS Now is overpriced and in my country it wasn't even available for the Vita at all (PS4 and PC only).
        I think they don't earn enough for it, wouldn't be suprised if PS Now would end like Eye Toy, PSP Go, PS Vita, PS TV and PS Move (in first place) for Sony, Sony kills what doesn't earn them quick cash, PS VR could be next because that one is struggling.

        Hotline miami is an incredible game. Really fast and difficult, like some levels probably died 50+ times trying, but the speed stops you getting p!ssed off and turning it off. You'll know when you play

        Nice! Oh by the way, if you're getting Persona 4 its very heavily story based. The first 2 to 3 hours of the game are mostly just cutscenes, giving you only a few brief things to do inbetween. After that is when the game gets good. :)
