Save Wizard MAX PS4 Review

Save Wizard MAX PS4 Review

After several comments yesterday telling me I had my original review wrong, here I am trying to put right that wrong.

I was initially reviewing savewizard.com (AVOID unless you you only have access to US games on PSN). For me, it promised much and delivered nothing. And yesterday I was issued a refund at last.

Absolutely avoid: https://shop.xploder.net/xploder-ps4-edition nothing good will come of it.

At least I could now buy and try Save Wizard MAX for the PS4, this promised a lot, being able to cheat by hacking save games is no mean feat, once you edit a save game the data changes and there’s something like a fingerprint system that checks to ensure you don’t cheat. Edit the data and this fingerprint changes too, and the game will not load.

Save Wizard MAX is able to over come this limitation, how I’m not sure… maybe it’s voodoo, maybe it’s Gandalf the Gray. Who knows? I heard a rumor years ago that it’s something to do with cross save with the PS Vita, and seeing as the Vita was hacked, so was the signing of save games.

Either way it doesn’t really matter, what matters is that this is just like the old school cheat disks/cartridges that used to popular with the likes of SNES, Megadrive, PS1 and PS2. You can manually edit codes to achieve a cheat (tricky but doable), or you can just browse and download one already made. They currently have 655 games in their database and a total of 46,748 cheats for those games. Not too shabby eh?

Checkout this screenshot from The Last of Us Remastered I took today:

YES I have nearly 10,000 of everything!

Granted it only works from a save game, so there’s a little to and fro copying to a USB drive, use the editor on the PC, copy it back… but if you can’t wait 2-3 minutes for the whole process, then there’s no helping you no matter what.

 

So a big thank you to Kitsune and ss4gogeta069 for putting me right… eventually. SS4gogeta069, had you been polite and informative right off the bat then there wouldn’t be a need to fall out. I’m man enough to know when I am wrong, and even admit to it, calling me a tool got you nowhere. That said, I’m sorry if I came over as a bit of a dick yesterday, I initially thought you were being antagonistic, while in reality you were trying to put me right.

Are we all friends again? Hope so – Fist Bump… Don’t leave me hanging 🙂

So yes, this one works with every region except Japan, and it works very well too. I’d highly recommend this if you need a little help like I did. TLOU is bloody hard and this made it much easier to get the Survivor+ trophies.

AND DON'T DO LIKE I DID and get domains confused. You need https://savewizard.net

Save Wizard for PS4 Review

Not to be confused with Save Wizard MAX (<— This one actually works.) for the PS4

Caveat Emptor.

I recently purchased the PS4 Save Wizard, I just wanted a little help with The Last of Us getting the platinum trophy. So I downloaded, installed, and purchased the Save Wizard in good faith that it’ll work.

It wont, it only works with US games and refuses to do anything with any other region.

So I tried to contact them via their website contact form several times, every time you submit a form it just refreshes the page, so I filed a dispute with Paypal, and left it for 72 hours… no response, I escalated the dispute and found my key for the save wizard was cancelled and they still failed to respond to paypal. However in 1 week I will be issued an automatic refund.

It’s still pisses me off that I now have no refund and software that doesn’t work as advertised.

Caveat Emptor – Buyer beware.

It’s a shame too, the PS3 version has a work around that the PS4 version doesn’t have.

So my advice is to stay clear of it. https://www.savewizard.com/ if you have anything other than a US PSN account and games, and https://shop.xploder.net/xploder-ps4-edition avoid too. The Xploder uses user generated save games.

https://www.savewizard.net  makes use of actual cheats. These work on all regions EXCEPT Japan.

 

Dino Frontier PSVR Review

Welcome to Dino Frontier, it’s a tabletop management similator with cowboys and dinosaurs… What’s not to like? Nothing, it’s utterly brilliant at what it does, and it does everything marvellously.

It’s a shame that it needs to be in VR, it could work without it, and thus open up even more of the market, but VR does enhance the whole experience to another level completely.

So gameplay. You are the mayor of a small western town and it’s you’re job to look after the settlers, make them chop down trees for lumber, which helps you build new building, they also need to scavange for food, to keep their little bellies full. At the start you’ll be micro-managing everyone, but as you progress you’ll train dinosaurs to help out. Along the way you’ll also play a little tower defence game while you’r settlers will be digging for stone and gold. All these resources you’ll need as you get deeper into the game, upgrading is part of the process and you’ll be doing a lot of it.

The controls I found to be a little fiddly at first, but that was my problem and not an issue with the game, once I had my headset and wands in frame of the camera I could and did play for hours with barely a single problem.

There is a lot of detail here, and if you don’t zoom in you’ll likely miss most of it, to me this is where the richness of the game lies, it’s just watching you’re little peeps going about their daily business, as they chop down trees, scavange food, attack and are attacked by dinosaurs, turn trees into usable planks, and train at fighting, strategy and weights, all to get to the final mission.

In the tower defence game you’re settlers are attacked by The Bandit King! while your peeps are mining for gold and stone, at the start you’ll need to rush and get as much stone as you can to upgrade the defences and place settlers in them to defend the outpost, this can be a bit slow and frustrating at first, but once you get the hang of it and get the defences ready it’ll get a lot easier. You will need to upgrade the Wagon station to take more settlers, more settlers make for easier defending which makes for more stone and gold, which means more upgrades and so on.

Once you’ve hit a peak and can have no more dino’s and settlers, then it’s time to take on the Bandit King in his own lair. This is the end game and while you will win if you’ve trained everyone and all the dino’s to the max, you can continue going back and forth between the gold mine and your town. Once you’ve done that, you’ll probably want to finish and collect all the trophies, and to be honest it’s an easy game to 100%.

A couple of weeks later I came back to the game and started from scratch, finished everything, and came back again for this review, to make a video I played for what felt like 30 minutes, but what was in fact 3½ hours! Not bad for a game where I’m on my third play through.

From start to finish the campaign is a little short, roughly 3-4 hours, but it’s so enjoyable I’ve played it through 2 more times and I’m still loving it. This is the only thing that lets it down, it could have been a little longer, but it’s so damned enjoyable I really didn’t mind.

 

Dino Frontier is pure gold from start to finish.

10/10
