To me it's about exclusives and PS4's exclusives are head and shoulders better than what XB1 is offering, to my gaming tastes anyway. Infamous, MLB The Show, and The Last of Us were all fantastic. Uncharted is coming up next year. On the other side I have no interest in Halo or Dead Rising and while I hear Sunset Overdrive was good fun, it's not a game I'd hinge my system purchasing decision on.

Spec-wise, ya the PS4 is better but I'm not sure if it's going to mean all that much two or three years into this generation's life cycle. 90% of the games I want are available on both and the ones that aren't I am more interested in the Sony versions, thus I own a PS4. Which is still strange for me to say since I was a big 360 guy and had zero interest in the PS4 last generation.

So does the 1st expansion add more missions where you travel deeper and deeper into a cave/complex and end up in a large room/area where your Ghost then spends minutes trying to hack/analyze/open an important object while waves and waves of evil enemies attack you and you have to hold them off?

Because I never get tired of those levels. Never.

I'm pretty much the opposite when it comes to sentimentality. I don't have time for ancient technology. My 360, which I had owned since launch, got kicked to the curb so fast it would have made your head swim when the new consoles were launched.

If consoles were puppies, I'd be the meanest SOB on the planet.



This. The only thing that has spared my 360's life by being stored in the basement instead of being put in the trash is that I still have all the Rock Band peripherals and my four year old son may one day find it fun to play with all that stuff. Doesn't look like the whole Guitar Hero/Rock Band thing is coming back for next gen so until then my 360's death sentence is on hold.

I play the game entirely in first person mode, except for when I'm in cover. Haven't had any issues at all. It's like a whole new experience from the previous gen version, as weird as that sounds.

So we're thinking of getting this for my 5 year old.  I have a couple of questions...

1: Is it too old for him?  The marvel version seems more older kid suited.  More violent etc
2: He doesn't really identify with marvel.  He knows spiderman, but that's about it.
3: Is there a disney character version where he could better identify with?  I see there's an disney original version but the starting characters are characters he doesn't care or know about.

My kid is 4.5 but I have the EXACT same questions. Interested in the responses....

A full extra year in development on next-gen systems and the developers still couldn't code Font Size + 2. Tiny, tiny text on the screen.

This game was good on the Xbox 360. It's outstanding in first person on a next gen system. Wow.

The number of cars and pedestrians depends on where you are and the time of day. Certain parts of the city have plenty of pedestrians, while others have few. Go to the highways and you'll easily see the increased traffic density for cars.

Btw, I'm pleased that with the new generation of hardware we're finally done with having the same cars everywhere (did you steal a garbage truck? Suddenly the streets are crawling with them. At least that's how it used to be before). Traffic contains a wide variety of cars at all times now.

Yeah, I took a walk down the street as Michael and their were lots of people everywhere.  Must have been the time of day and where was I at.

I've discovered some cars I can drive in first person, others it is an exercise in frustration.  I was trying to take a tight corner this morning and ended up plowing into a group of people on the sidewalk.  I think I'll set it up to auto-switch into third person for driving.

How do you set up the auto-switch? I tried to do that last night and it always kept me in my current view of choice.

GTA V for PS4. This is now the third time I've re-bought a "remastered" game for the PS4. (Tomb Raider and Diablo III being the others).

I'll be binging on Destiny tomorrow night.

I would love to be able to write something substantial. I enjoy reading very much and loved the creative writing assignments way back when I was in school. The problem is that I have less than zero creativity in my brain. I simply cannot think of anything to write about. I'm thinking of maybe taking a creative writing class at a local college just to force myself to write something. But I keep putting it off. But man, it would be so great if I could just get over this hump and write "something".

I'm all over FIFA 15. The demo was incredible. Plus everyone in my office gets this game so it gets very competitive, especially when we do a FIFA tourney over lunch. I need to practice to improve on my 3rd place finish in the spring.

Nothing until FIFA 15 next week and then I think that wraps up the year for me.
16  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: on: September 13, 2014, 12:35:35 PM
NHL 15, FIFA 15 Demo, and Diablo 3.

Ignoring Destiny (my shootyface days may be over as I no longer have any interest in playing these games), and getting NHL 15.
18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: on: September 04, 2014, 03:45:10 PM
I'm in Act V now and it's all new to me since I didn't get the expansion on PC. Nice change of pace since I have played all the other acts dozens of times each.
19  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (09/01) on: September 01, 2014, 02:52:52 PM

One does not simply finish up Diablo 3. It's a game that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend.

It's all I'll be playing this weekend. And next weekend. And the weekend after that.
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 29, 2014, 12:36:49 PM
Is there an option on the console where you can assign skills to any slot and each slot isn't locked to just a certain group? I think on the PC it was called "elective mode" or something, I can't remember. If so, does anyone use it?
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 28, 2014, 07:09:10 PM
Playing this thing basically solo and I'm having a blast still and I'm still only in Act III and level 41. Haven't even hit the good stuff yet.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playstation Plus - Now with lots more free games! on: August 27, 2014, 03:28:19 PM
That's really weak for the PS4. I think it's been long enough that they should be able to offer a AAA title like Knack on there soon. Is anyone actually buying Knack anymore?

I have two controllers bought a month apart (early December and early January) that has the rubber on the left thumbsticks on BOTH broken and/or rubbing off. I don't have the receipts because they were gifts so warranty doesn't apply to me apparently.
25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 22, 2014, 01:46:54 PM
You can add me if you want. I'm not super reliable when it comes to being able to join online games with any regularity with two young kids at home but you'll see me on from time to time in the evenings hack'n and slash'n. I'm HyphenNation on PSN.

I get to play one of my favourite games on my couch on a bigger screen in HD. No-brainer for me.

I've found I can only play this game an hour at a time, tops. Any more than that and it's just too stressful.  icon_biggrin

I find the same. After an hour I'm tense/burned out and I need to play something else.

Oh my. I'm hooked again. Controller works amazingly well. Better than I ever thought they could pull it off. Glorious HD. From my couch.

Less clicking, more streamlined. Just as fun as on the PC.

This may be as close as I'll ever get to gaming perfection.

I'm justifying this by telling myself that I didn't buy the Reaper of Souls expansion, which is still $30. So I'm really only double-dipping for half of the cost, which is justifiable in terms of this being a definitive edition. Plus it will be worth $30 to not have to figure out the status of my Battlenet account again. I feel the Caine pain on that front.



Same here. I skipped the expansion knowing I was getting a console version anyways.

Just got a call that my pre-order can be picked anytime from 10am-9pm, but he never specified a day. I assume he meant tomorrow, but what if....
32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] The Last Of Us on: August 18, 2014, 02:04:34 PM
That sequence is weird. I was definitely able to get the keycard before the generator. However, the bloater sequence played out differently based on my approach.

My first few attempts I'd set up traps on the ramp and try to kill the bloater as he came up the ramp. But that wasn't working because he'd still catch up to me from behind while I tried to kill the Stalkers blocking the hallway. So in later attempts I tried to just sprint down the hall using the shotgun to clear stalkers and when I turned the corner to the hallway with the keycard door there was a bloater waiting for me. It's almost like the game positioned the bloater so I would always have to face him, no matter what my approach.

Hay Day does this but it's so unobtrusive and optional. Basically once in a while you find a ticket lying on the ground that offers you the chance to watch a clip for 1 diamond (a form of in game currency). If you click yes you watch a 30 second ad for another app and then the diamond gets added to your total. The diamonds are not necessary to playing the game and you can ignore the tickets completely.

So after seeing the side by side of Destiny on the PS3 and PS4 I sold my PS3 and am buying a PS4 tonight. smile 

On the plus side it means I just "finished" several games in my backlog but now I need something to tide me over until Destiny actually launches.

So what game should I buy for the PS4?  I am leaning towards Infamous because it seems like the one I am most likely to be able to play with my kids watching (ages 8 and 6) because while their is a fair amount of violence you can choose to be good and save people. 

What else should I consider?



Infamous is great.

If you're looking for kid friendly the LEGO Marvel game is really fun.

Not kid friendly I'd go with Last of Us or Tomb Raider or Assassins Creed.

If you're into sports FIFA and MLB The Show are pretty great.

What's the jump-scare situation like with this game? Call me a p*ssy if you want, but I hate when my games are filled with that shit.
