I'm doing it for the story and to get the platinum.  skipping all of the side missions other than those that give shards and only enough to open up a few fast travel locations.  If you go evil second, it takes a lot less time as you can max out your karma quickly.

I'll be spending time with Space Engineers working on a station build using the new features they added this week.  Also try to clear up the evil playthrough in Infamous.  On Vita, I'm working my way through the missions in Unit 13.

I've been reading some of the recent tweets from the @beenoxteam account. 

Apr 13
@jakemabbott There is no realtime day & night cycle, but you will be able to free roam in the city at different moments.

didn't one of the previous games have a full cycle? 

Apr 13
@Round1f1ght The game runs at 1080p 30fps on both the PS4 and the Xbox One.
odd then that it was shelved.  must be due to the lack of improvements from last-gen

also, the game is only retailing for $40.  This is an unusual price for what should be a standout title.  maybe their dev budget wasn't high enough from the beginning?  plus, none of the movie actors are providing VO.

glad that the conveyors are in and working now.  this makes some of the designs I've been planning for the refinery base a lot more feasible now.

So did it not look good or did Sony offer them a cash hat?  I find it hard to believe they couldn't get their engine working on the xb1.  I'm interested in this one since they mentioned the return of dual web swinging with real attach points like Spiderman 2.  Though now I do wonder if the PS4 version will look next gen.

here's a few shots from the PS4 version

not bad, but they don't scream next gen outside of polygon count and view distance (which is nice when you can see all of NYC)

the playthrough video seems ok to me.

-edit- beaten to the punch...

Eurogamer has received confirmation from Activision that the XB1 version of The Amazing Spiderman 2 has been indefinitely postponed:

Quote from: Eurogamer
Activision has confirmed the postponement of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on Xbox One to Eurogamer but said it will collaborate with Microsoft "in an effort to release" the title at some point.

There's still no reason for the delay - and whether the game will actually release at all still seems in doubt.


I think Spiderman videogames have been on a speedy decline ever since Web of Shadows and have no intention of buying this anyway, but people keeping lists of next-gen exclusives can tally up one more.

er, wrong thread?  this should be posted to the XB1 thread, or more appropriately to the non-existent ASM2 thread

It actually existed, just no one cared  http://gamingtrend.com/forums/console-gaming/(pc360xb1wii-u3dsps3ps4)-the-amazing-spider-man-2/
wow, nobody indeed.  only one post from CeeKay in it.  what a change from the high point of the SM2 thread (and SM3 until people started playing it)

I haven't loaded in the last few nights as my co-op buddy hasn't had time, but I did manage to almost convince two other people to buy this. 

We've enabled meteorites and while they are a definite hassle, give the game a nice reason to design your ships and stations against accidental damage.  heavy armor, reinforced armor around reactors (aka, internal bulkheads and protected cockpits.  it sadly means all that glass is a dangerous luxury, but once AI turrets are activated, worth the effort to not have your expensively built warship taken out in a lucky hit.

I think my first personal ship will be something along the lines of the Sulaco from Aliens, complete with the dropship and APC (once wheels are added)

Got Trials for PS4.  Think the PC version was delayed a week.

Showing 24th now in the UK
surprised there hasn't been any reviews yet.  although I'm not worried.  this is what, Red Lynx's 7th Trials game?

Maybe I should have been.  Polygon - 6.5 "missing features and bad design choices make it a  significant step backwards after Evolution"

It's getting 8s most everywhere else.   Polygon is also my least trusted out of a plethora of untrusted sources for reviews.
yeah, saw that when I went looking on metacritic.

Anyone picked this up yet?  I'm not in a rush to get it just yet but it's high on my impulse sale price list.

Do you have a link to this? Their search engine isn't very good.
Not sure why they bothered with an internal engine when you can't even get an exact match of the name.

So, when does the celebratory party start?

after JZ's write up, I found the lure of the game too much to resist and picked up a copy through the IndieGala store for $15.  glad I did.  I have had a lot of fun going through the game's survival mode and managed to revive the crashed ship that I started the game with.  and then proceed to crash into the second asteroid that I fly to.  (Turns out my only remaining reverse thruster had been smashed by a meteorite without my noticing it.)  I found a cheat of sorts by dying in the game without having set a spawn point and got a free starter ship for my troubles.  well, I crashed that one too and had some damage to repair, but eventually got going again. 

I then spent the next few hours intercepting the various cargo transports flying through the system and robbing their cargo.  good thing their turrets aren't active yet.   icon_twisted 

Now I just need to figure out the best way to steal some of their ships whole without wrecking my own.  trying to figure out how to make a giant claw

Hoping to finish up my evil playthrough on Infamous 2.  Not sure what's next, possibly Strike Suit Zero on the PS4. 
did not play much of Infamous Second Son, didn't touch SSZ either.  Spent way too much time playing Space Engineers and enjoying the challenge of space piracy and how to hijack automated cargo ships.
