Good game, just not really my thing.

Been intrigued by Puppeteer, might give that a shot on PS3.

One more 360 resolution question.

I have an HDTV that only does 720p.

I have another that does 1080p.

When I play gears on the latter, it is SO much more detailed. If 360 only does 720, why is that so?

It upscales everything to 1080 when it can.

So is UPlay on the PS4 completely borked right now? Redeemed the 'Passport' and it's never been able to connect to the Ubisoft servers, which even the single player game constantly reminds me of.  disgust

I've been able to use this since the beginning.  odd that you've been having difficulties. 

looking at the games official forums I've seen a bunch of threads about uPlay connection issues.  I've been keeping an eye on them to see if anyone figures out how to enable the 120mhz refresh rate for 1920x1080 on the PC.

The forums were offline this morning when I went looking, but they're back up now. And yes, easy to find quite a number of people in the same boat as I am. Found this:

when i called yesterday the rep just said it's a known issue and they are working on fixing it. said just to keep trying over the next couple of days

So off playing something else until they get this ironed out.

This video is getting me to upgrade to a 1TB SSHD. This was done on the PS3. I wonder if the PS4 difference will be as stark.
I found this speed comparison on IGN. There doesn't seem to be much of an advantage for BF4 but the load times for COD are basically cut in half. More evidence that IW are completely shit?

Also, changing the PS4 drive is child's play:
http://m.ign.com/wikis/playstation-4/How_to_Replace_a_PS4_Hard_Drive


Swapping drives was very easy.  Easier than with PS3, even (it had that very tiny blue screw that was easy to mangle).  I am already something like 20% filled on it, IIRC, so I'm very glad I made the swap.

What drive did you end up going with?

I went with a Seagate Hybrid 1T.

The only hiccup I experienced was choosing Update in the safe mode boot menu instead of Reinitialize.  Caused a bit of a panic, but all was great in the end.

Cool, thanks.

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.

Well, let's see shall we?  Vita upstairs, PS4 downstairs in Standby... Remote Play... yup! First thing is does is turn it on.  icon_cool

I have been able to complete 4 Gadgets on my own, which is more than I thought I would.  Not nearly enough Crystals to finish any of those things, though. 

Read that there's a "new game plus" since it could take multiple runs through the game to get all of the collectables.

Late last night everything seemed to be behaving itself. Tonight, while I could download updates and demos without issue (and the mechanism is much nicer than on the PS3) none of the 'down arrow' status/extra stuff was working, nor the What's New. Figured it's more server issues. icon_confused

However, Engine posted in another thread that most of the collectibles can't be picked up without a second player.  That is just terrible and will spoil my enjoyment quite a bit.

Hmmm... guess I'll have to talk the wife into playing it with me.

No, you guys just need to add me as a PSN Friend (as Machane) and then get ahead of me so I can benefit from your play throughs.  smile   (or the fact that I'm already near the end of chapter 4 can benefit you, heh)

I'm still not exactly clear how the collectibles work since nobody on my limited Friends list has played much, but every time you find one of those chests I think if a Friend has gathered it you may get a choice between what they found and what you found or something?  Or maybe you just get both?  It's a random system with pieces for several different gadgets, so even being able to choose pieces to complete one you have parts for would be a help.

Yes, the collectables seem to be random and if a friend has already hit that spot you can either choose from what you found or what they found.  I'll send you a request when I get back online tonight.  icon_cool

I'm a little confused by that because its showing me my full name even though I told it not to.

That's why I asked also because it's showing my real name on my screen but in the privacy setting I have it set not to.  So I don't know if it just shows up that way just on my console?  My PSN name is Buckeye Shane, can anyone who is friends with me tell me if that is what is showing up on their screens?

As noted, it shows you your name on your console but your PSN ID to your friends and in messages / feeds. Unless you've told it to show your name and you've both done and accepted the "True Name" request with someone.

That link Jimmy gave doesn't seem to be the update to me.  It seems to be the full install if you are installing a new drive and need to get the OS installed.  Maybe it will work like the update, but you are downloading more than you need to.

The 307MB one is the update that you could pull online automatically from the PS4. The 859MB one is the latest full install and is (as noted) for use if you are replacing or rebuilding the hard drive. It notes that "All users and all data will be deleted" when you use it.

Tried the demo yesterday and yes indeed it is quite odd. And best as I can tell, it's not any portion of the game but rather a stand-alone demo with some behind the scenes tours of how they allegedly made the demo. I had a goofy grin on my face the whole time and when it was over I immediately bought the game.  thumbsup

Totally forgot about the free games... just registered the 780 FTW and got Steam codes for Rise of the Triad (yay?) and Arkham Origins. I had a 15% discount coupon as well so I don't feel too bad about the whole deal.
