The whole attacking shark concept is stupid anyway. Sharks don't hunt humans. They mostly just attack us if they think we're some other animal, which mostly happens when someone is splashing water while swimming along the surface. They'll typically stop their attack once they realize that their target isn't what they thought it is, which is why shark attack victims typically are only bitten, not eaten. The Assassin's Creed developers claim to want to make a realistic pirate setting, which makes it doubly stupid that they're enabling these old myths.

Uh the whole game is based on myths, legends, and fantasy. I hope you aren't playing the game assuming that any of what happens actually ever occurred in real life.

Do you take me for a complete idiot? Tongue

I'm referring to the developers making a huge point out of trying to portray a more realistic kind of pirate in this game than the swashbuckling Johnny Depps we usually get. If they've spent this effort trying to portray more believable pirates, why introduce the shark from Jaws? It kind of undermines their efforts.

I don't see whats more realistic about this game in terms of the characters or the setting than say the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. So no I still don't get your complaint.

Nintendo stop trying to cater to the hardcore market and while the casuals make up a very huge market they are also very slow to upgrade.  Most casuals are probably still using the Wii.

Because most casuals thought the Wii U was just a Wii with a different controller. Nintendo's messaging was horrible for it.

What the hell? This show? I don't even...

Spoiler for Hiden:
What the hell, Malcolm Merlyn is back?

What the effing hell? I know it's a comic book story, but damn.

Although, I am kind of happy he's back in the show, because his kind of madness helped drive the show. It'll be interesting how all these new factions will react to one another and how Oliver and crew will deal with them. Brother Blood isn't quite doing enough right now, and the League of Shadows are a giant threat rather than city specific.

In the comics apparently Merlyn and Oliver came to something of an understanding, but I don't know the details. I'm pretty sure Merlyn spent some time in the Lazarus Pit though, assuming he's still working for the league.

Let's hope the writers can handle this many plotlines and keep the story focused enough on Oliver and co. Things are getting way out of hand with so many villains, and heroes popping up, and there's still that Flash cameo that's supposed to happen.

If the pull this off, they should get the people behind Arrow to just do the damn Justice League movies because that's how complex it's getting.

They are definitely treading a line where they could make the show a mess of plots, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt based on what they have done so far. Its still a thousand times better than the absolute dullness that is Agents of SHIELD.

Also let's not confuse DLC with boosts, payed bypasses, and pay gates.  Horse armor was silly but also wasn't any of those things.  It does sound like some of these titles feature these F2P style micro transactions,  EA started doing this late last gen too.

That's the future IMO. Paid DLC, unlocks, season passes will become even more common. Yea the games are still $60 but publishers will find ways to extract the extra money.

It has that sort of by the numbers network feel to it especially the main cast but it seems pretty well made and hopefully more depth will get shown in the long run. Its supposed to be by the people behind Fringe which was a good if sometimes flawed series so I'll get it more episodes.

I remember Sony saying you could play the game after only a fraction downloaded and it would download the rest.  Is that something that needed to be implemented for games and doesn't just work?


Calling it a fraction is being somewhat generous. Killzone Shadowfall needs around 7 gigs downloaded before you can play it.

Different strokes. I love the sea stuff. I've spent so much time running around cities in previous AC games sailing the ship around to different islands to do tasks, and just searching is fun. The seamless nature of no long loading screens is a huge plus. I'm sure it will wear off after awhile but this game has gotten me interested in AC again when the III one left me indifferent to more in the series.

Being a pirate is just plain fun.


P.S. I'm so glad they have minimized the modern day stuff. The gimmick of it being a gaming studio is cute but the less of it the better.

I think the "pass" was that people kept buying 360's even with all the return's. I had 2 360's die on me and I put up with the waiting because well I liked the games on it so I dealt with it.

That is probably the one thing that will actually make me keep my pS4 in the end. If I had to play it on my TV I would probably never get any time on it. Can I turn on and turn of the PS4 with my Vita?

I think the Vita Remote Play will work if the PS4 is in standby mode.

Looks like we finally have a console launch that wasn't supply constrained either. Plenty of pre orders and extra units in stores to sell.

The only slightly "Debbie Downer" comment I'd make is I want to see sales after the initial hardcore gamers rush and holiday sales. Do both systems keep good numbers after that. I hope they can.

I'm not sure I really like the interface for the PS4.    It's still early, but I'm starting to decide that it's underwhelming me.

I am finding I like it much more than the XMB from PS3.  Much faster navigation to the things I want to get to.

I'm fine with it. I don't want the UI to get overblown and cluttered. Its still a console not a full windows/Mac PC. Just let me do the few basic things I want in a quick and straight forward manner.

That blows, sorry to hear man!  Have you contacted Amazon to see if they can compensate you in some way?

If it was not regular shipping option where they have a window of days to get there, but something like 2 day then they should refund the shipping charge back for failing to deliver it.

Word of warning to those of you planning to play Assassin's Creed 4 on the PS4: Give it a couple of days first. Ubisoft just confirmed that the retail version of the game runs at 900p, but that it will be upgraded to 1080p in a title update available "shortly after release". Still no word on the resolution of the Xbox One version, which is kind of suspicious.

There was a 1.01 update available when I put the disc in this morning.

I am willing to have a larger sized box that provides a full featured entertainment system that integrates into my living room.

Let's call these two systems for what they are:

PS4:  Turbo charged PS3 (in terms of not expanding really on the feature set) that is capable of next gen gaming, but is focused only on gaming.   Developer friendly architecture.
Xbone:  Next gen gaming device that also provides living room/entertainment center integration and multitasking


There is room for both.   In fact I'm thankful we will have both.

The only multimedia ability that the One has over PS4 is the HDMI pass through. The rest is just app support for streaming. Also the PS4 can do multitasking too like any modern operating system.

If they are gonna charge for things like MP now the one thing I won't give them the least bit of slack anymore is performance and reliability with PSN. The network damn well better work and it better be up 99.99 percent of the time Sony.

Anyone know how to transfer data if you swap HDD at a later date?

I would like to know this, too.  I've watched a few of these HDD swaps, but no one mentions transferring the info.
I would assume it's the same or similar to the PS3.
You use a usb flash drive with the built in Playstation backup software, pop the new drive in, then restore from said flash drive. It was easy to do, but time consuming..IE: hours...

Newegg's got 128GB thumb drives for $80.  slywink

It almost reads like only the special event "The Defenders" will air on Netflix but not the other shows with the individual characters (Daredevil, Jessica Jones (?), Iron Fist, Luke Cage).

They will all be on Netflix each with a full commitment of 13 episodes.

The problem with episodes like this is putting a main character in mortal danger doesn't have the emotional weight since you know they will come out at the end. Unless its like the last episode of the season and they want to kill a character off for a big splash.

Well its expected in that case. I assume MS is paying some fee to Unity so developers can use the engine free, but of course that means they can't make it for PS4. If developers don't want to be platform limited then they license it themselves.

PLEASE NOTE:
The Xbox One footage is the same one that DF got heavily criticized for. The color balance in the Xbox One footage is wrong! Don't draw any conclusions based on it. It actually has the same color balance as the PS4 version, but you can't see that in these videos. Since the black colors are crushed in that footage, a lot of detail is lost in dark areas. The best comparisons are done in the bright parts of the videos for this reason.

The flaw of Internet video vs actually watching the game on the TV. Even if its 1080p the video is still heavily compressed compared what you get on your TV.

No, you're talking about something else. There's very, very little compression in these videos (hence their size), but the Xbox One footage has the wrong RGB range set. This has nothing to do with compression, but it means the recording equipment received values outside of the color range it was expecting, clamping them as a result.

My mistake in wording. I wasn't talking about these downloadable ones but stuff people are watching streaming from Youtube and other websites.

This month also marks the anniversary of Vita games being added to PS+, so presumably the year-long games (Uncharted, Gravity Rush, and Wipeout) will be replaced by three new games.  I don't think Sony has confirmed this, but that's what they did with the year-long PS3 games.  Also, Sony confirmed that you'll be able to add the PS4 games to your account even if you don't have a PS4.  I don't plan on getting a PS4 until next year, so that should make for a nice big library once I do get one.

They could change them, but the Vita has a much smaller library of games vs the PS3. I would be surprised too see them take out something like Uncharted as its still one of the best games to show off the Vita.

Well for the most part I think your a part of a minority. The rise and popularity of the FPS genre is not based on story and characters. Even Bioshock's designer Kevin Levine said they had to make a great shooter first with quality game mechanics at its core.

There's still time yet for it to fail. Guerrilla Games has proven its inability to write a decent story since KZ2 even if they've finally gotten the technical aspects down.

The game could very well turn out like Crysis. Technically sound, but overall lacking any soul, with a stupid and ridiculous story.

And the difference to this compared to just about any other FPS "story"? I mean really Battlefield and CoD are massively popular. Do people really get into the crazy Michael Bay plot lines of either of those?

Outside of maybe Bioshock it doesn't matter much to most players IMO.

Will be interested to see if Sony will change policies because of feedback with the PS4. This no DLNA, no MP3 stuff is clearly not tech related but business so as to try and drive business to their online music and video services. For all the crap MS took about things I'll give them credit for making a number of changes to get back on the good side with users.
