ended up listing wolfenstein PS4 version on Ebay.  Auction ends tomorrow, but already got 3 bids and it's sitting around $37.  I asked for $39 plus shipping.  So I ended up buying the PC version on steam for $29.  While I had fun with the PS4 version, the fact that it's $10 cheaper on PC a week after I bought it brand new, I figured it would be good to do this.  I still have MLB the show to keep me interested in the PS4.

What do you have against Infamous?

well, now I kind of wished I stayed with the PS4 version...  The game engine is the same they used for Rage, and that had major texture pop in.  I forgot about that.  And it's prevalent in Wolfenstein.  I wished I did some research before buying.  I'm pretty sure I had upgraded my PC since Rage came out, and that the fact the texture pop in isn't noticible at all in the PS4 version, would make you think that my PC would be able to handle it.

The game is also a bit stuttery in both graphics (which I'm sure it relates to the delayed texture draw) and in the audio.

In my brief play session, I would recommend it on the PS4.  Graphically, there isn't much difference.  I was going for saving on money, and better controls.

So in your eyes the fact that I had a PS4 for 1 week and don't have infamous automatically make you think I have something against it.  Weird outlook. Weird.

To answer your question, money doesn't grow on trees.  The fact that I already spent close to $500 on PS4 relalated items, plus the steam sale, probably means I'm quite tapped out.

Yeah, I couldn't play Rage on the PC for more than 1 minute without going crazy from texture popping and I finished Wolfenstein on the PS4 and never noticed it once.

The id tech 5 engine is highly dependant on drivers and graphic card memory bandwidth, something that really hasn't been optimized for by both graphics card manufacturers on PC. Although that will change since the generic version of megatexture tech is going to become a standard feature of XB1, PS4, OpenGL, and DirectX.

I remember that was really terrible in the initial release but from what I recall they straightened that out over time. Between patches and the "launch options" you can use, you should be some degree of fine. FWIW, found these in my Steam version:

Heard this was on sale at Costco XB1/PS4 for ~33 but I haven't been able to get there to check.
Yup.  I was tempted by it, but both next gen console versions are 33.99 through 7/6/14

I don't usually pay full price for shooters, but having played it, I'd make an exception for this one. In terms of sheer entertainment value, it's worth full price. If you can get it cheaper, then I'd say it's a no-brainer.

Also note - Amazon has the PC digital download version for $29.99.

Agreed. It's the best single player FPS to come out since Metro Last Light. And if you haven't played Last Light yet, then do so when it comes out for the PS4.

Do you need to play the older Metros to get the most out of Last Light?

Redux is also half price ($12.49) on Steam currently, and was even cheaper during the sale.

EDIT - I was mistaken.  Apparently Steam is selling them as separate games, Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux.  It's only the 2033 Redux that is cheap if you own the original.

Last Light is a direct sequel to 2033. So I would recommend playing both. 2033 is a really good shooter, Last Light is 2033 with improvements to the gameplay, set pieces and pacing. Both are outstanding though.

You could technically plat Last Light without playing 2033, but you would miss a lot of the story.

Ohhh, I'm sorry.  I had it in my head that Last Light was the third game in the series.

I got Wolfenstein during the recent Steam sales. However, it turns out it'll only run on a 64 bit OS, and my 8 year old aging computer has a 32 bit OS. So I contacted Steam support, and although they don't have a refund policy for this situation, they DID refund me as a customer service gesture!  thumbsup

Still too bad about the game though, I really felt like playing an old-school 1st person shooter again.

Be prepared to have most AAA games from now on require 64bit, there's probably a bunch of PC only titles that will make that switch as well in the coming years.

Yeah, I'd say if you're looking to play new games like Wolfenstein and your PC can handle it, you should definitely just invest in 64-bit Win 7.

I'm still making my way through this on PS4 after starting it on release date. I guess getting married and moving take up all your bloody time!

Anyways, I was loving the game up to the moon station level. Terrible level design. I'm hoping I'm in a third act lull and things will pick up during the final stretch.

Yeah, that was probably one of the weak points (my only other gripe with the pacing would be the time in the middle walking around HQ).

It does pick up after the moon level and more or less gets "back to normal."

Finished it. Not quite loved it, but still thumps up. Performed wonderfully mostly, the last few hrs had a few hitches in fps. Nothing much , just caching prolly. Overall , a great direction mixing old school and new mechanics.

I finished this on Saturday night. Overall it was a fun game but I enjoyed the first half much more than the second, the level design and combat scenarios just started degrading at that point. I enjoyed the prolonged narrative sequences, where you're just exploring the area and talking to people, it reminded me of Starbreeze games like Riddick, The Darkness, and Syndicate, all of which I greatly enjoyed.

This was a great first effort by Machine Games as a new studio, I'm glad the game was successful for them and I look forward to their next project.

If I was reviewing the game (which I suppose I am!) I'd give it a 3/5.
