Infamous: First Light is free on PS+ starting Tuesday. Definitely grabbing that.

Every time this gets bumped I get all excited thinking the PS+ version is finally released.

Personal preference. Performance wise the two systems are close so it depends on what games you want to play. And that's a personal choice. For example YK likes the XB1 exclusives better where I have no interest in any of them and enjoyed three PS4 exclusives this year alone.

Short answer: up to you.

47  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: If It's Okay With TiLT, Name Your 2014 Game(s) of the Year! (and other awards) on: December 23, 2014, 02:31:28 PM
My game(s) of the year are Infamous: Second Son and Diablo 3, both for PS4. Infamous because it's the only game I finished this year which is saying a lot since when it came out we had a 3 month old in the house and limited time. Diablo 3 because even though I put 100 hours into the PC version the console version still felt fresh and new and I have put almost the same amount of time into this one as well.

Honourable mentions:

GTA V - falls just short because it came out later in the year and I'm barely past the point I got to on the 360 version before I stopped playing it. So I haven't seen anything "new" to me yet, although the first person mode and revamped graphics are amazing

The Last of Us - I really liked this game but not as much as I thought I would. I found it overly difficult mostly because I don't have the patience to crawl around with limited ammo avoiding zombies. I'm more of a run and gun guy. I still plan on finishing this though.

Dissapointments:

NHL 15 - I find the gameplay to be the best in the series, but the lack of game modes and the removal of key features (unable to skip shifts you're not playing in Be A Pro, for example) is inexcusable. No season mode means I have to play Franchise GM mode if I want any semblance of a continuous season, and I hate this mode.

FIFA 15 - I'm in the minority but I liked 14 so much better. The graphics for 15 are a huge step up but I find the gameplay has suffered. It's basically a pace-fest now with everyone spamming their speedy guys through defenders with abandon. It's back to more Ping-Pong style soccer which I though they were getting away from with 14.

I haven't played Need For Speed:Rivals for PS4 but I hear it's good. Maybe someone who has played it can weigh in? I'm interested as well...

Bah, US and in-store only. I have a US address in Niagara Falls that I ship to when I want to order from US sites but that requires me to be able purchase and/or sign up online. For example if US Best Buy or Amazon has a crazy deal on something I'll buy it from there and ship it to Niagara Falls and then drive the hour to pick it up rather than just waiting for a sale in Canada.

I'd say Red for Canada as that's perhaps the primary colour in the flag, and it's always a colour that comes up with talking about Canada.

Others I'd go for would be USA=Blue, Greenland=Green, Norway=Yellow, Russia=White

I second this, although my Canadian bias is showing. We're red, dammit!

I've been playing the SimCity Citybuilder for a couple of days now, and I can honestly say I don't even know where to go in order to pay real money for things. Maybe I just block it out because there is a zero percent chance I would ever spend money, but I can't say the IAP are in your face at all.

Is it fun? Is there a real game to it, or is it just another timer reset game?

It's nothing special. At its core I think it's FarmVille with pretty graphics, although I never played FarmVille, so that's more of a guess. There are disaster scenarios that unlock eventually. My playtime lends itself to small chunks spread out over the day, so I'll keep with it and see if there's actually a game here. I doubt it though.

Have you played Simpsons: Tapped Out? Is this SimCity game similar to that? Because my guilty pleasure is Tapped Out. I haven't spent a dime but I've put hours into it. I'm slightly ashamed.
53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The end of a gaming era on: December 09, 2014, 07:43:16 PM
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.
56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3,360,PS4,XB1,PC] Grand Theft Auto V on: December 01, 2014, 09:34:39 PM
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....

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.

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.

NHL 15, FIFA 15 Demo, and Diablo 3.

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?

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.

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