I see people saying PS Plus is a great value because of all the free games it gives you, but how is online gaming on the service?

It was my intention to play a variety of games on the PS4 today, but I ended up getting sucked into AC4, leaving only half an hour each with Killzone, Lego Marvel and Flower early on. I keep having to stop and admire the crystal clear graphics. 1080p makes a huge difference to me. Amazingly, the last patch for AC4 seems to have pretty much eliminated most aliasing artifacts, which makes things like ropes look great in motion when they would have been a flickering mess at lower resolutions.

Looking forward to messing around some more with this thing tomorrow. It's been an extremely pleasant experience so far.

Yeah, AC 4 is gorgeous.

On another note, does anyone know how to turn the controller's light off? I'm about to take ducktape to it...

I'll be working my way through Assassin's Creed 4 on the PS4 with a touch of Resogun (PS4) and Diablo 3 (PC) for good measure!
166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/XB1/PS3/PS4/Wii U/PC]Assassin's Creed IV:Black Flag on: November 25, 2013, 10:48:57 PM
This game isn't just fun, it's a marvel in game design. I recognize it has flaws, but damned if I've not been in a state of awe during every moment that I've played it so far (I'm 25% done with the main sequence but I've been exploring and collecting a lot). The mechanics themselves haven't evolved much from the earlier games - running, climbing, and combat mostly feel the same. But the design of the world itself and how interactive it all is, the seafaring gameplay like sailing and ship battles, the quality of the voice acting, the motion capture, the dialogue, even the map, is all extremely well done.

Up until now I would read about how the AC games are made by giant teams collaborating across multiple studios and I wondered why it took so much manpower, but now I get it now. I'm pretty sure this is going to end up being my game of the year.

I need to add in two disclaimers:

I'm a huge fan of pirates and that setting and I'm also playing on my PS4 and a new TV, so I might be experiencing this game on a high smile

I think it will be worth purchasing at a discounted price and running through it, just to experience the sights an sounds. I was floored when I played it at E3, but I knew and even said as much to one of the developers that the gameplay seemed shallow.

I'm absolutely in love with this game, I haven't played an AC game since 2 so I'm mostly floored with the increase in scope.

HOWEVER, holy shit this game is buggy... at least the PS4 version. The audio is where I see the most bugs, but I run into a lot of graphical problems too like texture pop-in, warped physics, getting stuck in objects, etc. I hope the next patch irons these issues out because otherwise it's one of my favorite games of the year.

I look forward to seeing how Sony handles pre-orders of digital games. You know, pre-loading and all that.

Also, can we access our digital libraries on a non-primary PS4?

Where's the PS4 code??  crybaby

So how does it work playing your digital games on other people's PS4s? Because I'm hoping to go all digital with this platform.

I haven't experienced any issues and have been impressed with PSN's performance. I downloaded Resogun, Blacklight, and a few apps quite quickly. I also played coop Resogun with voice chat and it was perfect. Very happy so far.

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

From what I've read, nobody else can see your real name unless the both of you have manually accepted a request for this from each other.

This is what I experienced firsthand today.

177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: November 13, 2013, 06:53:23 AM
It looks like the Xbox One version is the superior console version. From the Polygon review:

The Xbox One release's framerate was far more noticeable. As mentioned in the initial review, Call of Duty: Ghosts suffers from consistent framerate drops on the PS4, especially during multiplayer when action got especially hectic. The Xbox One version suffered no such drops, maintaining a steady 60 frames per second throughout.

That must make Xbox One owners happy.

Is anyone considering buying a Wii U when Mario comes out rather than an XB1 or PS4?
179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Ryse on: November 09, 2013, 07:22:56 PM
Even if the game ends up having shallow gameplay, which was my concern while playing it at E3, it's absolutely gorgeous and an excellent game to showcase what next-gen consoles are capable of visually and aurally.

I'm not sure they could have chosen a better time to launch this game in 2 weeks.

Seriously... I wonder what the pre-order numbers look like. I think after the dust settles from the PS4 and XB1 launches we'll see a lot more attention paid to this game, assuming it's as amazing as the videos make it out to be.
181  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [wii u] Super Mario 3d World on: November 09, 2013, 07:08:45 PM
I think I know what Turtle is talking about. The textures of these games look more solid somehow, which is a good thing.
182  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 6 days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: November 09, 2013, 06:50:47 PM
I want an Xbox One during the launch window but I know I'll want a PS4 for the long run, I'm not willing to have both. Not wanting both isn't even a money thing, I just don't want that many consoles in my living room as I'll eventually succumb to the Wii U as well. I loved Ryse at E3 and it would serve well as my first next-gen console experience. Dead Rising 3 looks like a blast and the amount of zombies on-screen at any given time is crazy. And then there's Crimson Dragon, spiritual successor to Panzer, which I also played at E3 and enjoyed. I only have the PS4 pre-ordered, though, and there's not a single exclusive launch window title I'm interested in. I know the exclusives will come soon enough from Sony's stable of studios, but they aren't here yet...
183  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Breaking bad as good/bad as usual! on: November 08, 2013, 08:32:34 AM
I really didn't like that they decided to brutally torture Jessie before ending the series. I mean, the guy has taken a beating throughout the show, but never outright tortured (physically and mentally - his beatings and the murdering of his ex in front of him). AND enslaved. I thought that was a pretty classless route to go with a character we care for. It really sours my feelings on the entire show because it didn't need to happen, it didn't add any additional gravity to the already dire situation. It was fan service in the worst way, as far as I'm concerned.

I also didn't care for the ending aside from the fact that it tied things up. I suppose Walter and Jessie felt even, since Jessie was responsible for Hank being killed and Walter for him being tortured and his ex-girlfriend being murdered. So there was no reason for either one to kill the other.

Ah well. Brilliant show but like most shows of its caliber, the last few seasons fell off. Actually... it was mainly part one of the final season that disappointed, part two was bad finally being broken.

184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii] Legend of Zelda: The Skyward Sword on: November 03, 2013, 04:35:58 AM
The first 4-5 hours of the game were my favorite. I eventually gave up because I got frustrated... I had to blow up a wall but the textures are so low-res that I couldn't tell there was a crack in the section of the wall where the bomb was supposed to explode. That drove me nuts.
185  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Ender's Game on: November 02, 2013, 07:45:43 AM
I really liked the simulation battle scenes and I thought they did a great job developing Ender's character. Overall it's a decent enough sci-fi flick and the two people with me who hadn't read the book (I have) liked the movie a lot. I did NOT like Harrison Ford and the actress who plays Captain Anderson, they were not interesting whatsoever and their acting and dialogue was as flat as Louisiana.

When did Nintendo start putting out bad games? I'm not the most passionate Nintendo fan in the world, but I remember back in 2001 when I was working at an EB Games agreeing with a co-worker that Nintendo had never put out a bad game before (as far as the general consensus was concerned). Times have certainly changed.

Played it at PAX with 4 players.

It's really good. They also really toned down the players screwing over other players aspects of previous games. Although it's probably as much from the game being 3D, so everyone's not stepping over each other's toes.

That's good to hear. I don't intend to play with more than one other person at a time but I wasn't a fan of that aspect of NSMB.

I should also add that, while this game looks like a run-of-the-mill shooter as far as mechanics, it does look like it'll have an interesting world to explore. I like what I'm seeing in the trailers.

That's kind of a best of both worlds situation. There's people out there with serious hard ons for 60fps. 60fps is great, but not needed for everything. I'd still rather have better graphics in certain cases. But in MP, 60fps is very helpful.

I have a HUGE hard-on for 60fps. I've tried acclimating myself to 30fps gaming by limiting the framerate in my PC games to 30, but it's a futile endeavor... it's like night and day to me. Until 60fps is the standard on these consoles I won't take them seriously. 

I'll still be buying Killzone, though, as I'd like to invest in the platform's exclusives. It is, afterall, the reason I'm buying a PS4.

Resurrecting this thread as I'm looking at SSDs.

With the PS4 and a graphics card upgrade looming, my budget is tight but I can still squeeze in a SSD upgrade. I'm looking at the Samsung 840 series 120GB drive.

Is it recommended to keep the OS and games on a separate drive the way I'm currently doing that with my SATA drives? My idea is to get one now for my OS and productivity software, but keep games on my 1TB SATA, and in a few months get a second SSD and install my games there.

I'll still keep the 1TB SATA around for media.

of course Steam has it on sale for another 16 or so hours slywink

anyways, looking for something different than my normal stable of games so I grabbed this and the Vergil DLC.

Just got the Virgin DLC for like $2.50. Score!

Stupid China's terrible and corrupt labor and business culture. I hate having to worry about this with every big purchase.
The worst thing about this particular instance is that consumers get screwed either way because there's not a lot of choice when it comes to games consoles. We don't have much power to influence the console manufacturers here. Only for electronics where there is actual choice do we get the chance to make a difference. I know Apple uses Foxconn extensively, despite getting grilled about it in the media multiple times. Don't buy iPhones or iPads. Buy competing products that don't use labor practices that equate to slavery. I think some of their competitors do the same thing (Samsung maybe?) but I don't remember the details at the moment.

All of them do it. ALL of them. Don't buy the horseshit that it's just Apple. Our electronics empire is built on the back of cheap asian labor, and it's not going to stop until China changes their labor laws

Motorolla builds their phones on cheap American labor - link.  icon_lol
