Greatness *still* awaits, apparently.

I love my PS4, but I've been supremely disappointed in the lack of exclusives. I'm talking real exclusives, not indie shit I can get all day long on Steam for half the price. It's been two years, for God's sake.

Did you play Tearaway Unfolded yet? Or Bloodborne or Tales of Zestiria or Until Dawn or The Vanishing of Ethan Carter or Disgaea 5? I mean those are just recently released titles I could keep going if you want me to.

Tearaway Unfolded is on sale this week if you have PS Plus. It's a really light hearted and fun platformer. It's the type of game that doesn't take itself too seriously, but it reminded me of why I like games in the first place. w
83  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I have a PS4. What games do I *need* to experience? on: November 03, 2015, 03:58:05 PM
Second Son for starters. It should be $20 on Amazon.

The Last of Us Remastered (if you haven't played the PS3 version)

Tearaway Unfolded

Helldivers

Bloodborne

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

Rocket League

Until Dawn

The Order (This one is controversial but I loved it and so did Ron, plus it's only $20 on Amazon).

MLB15 if you like baseball

There's also the newest Tales game if you like RPGs. Honestly if you like JRPGS then you have to have a PS4.

Just finished Uncharted 2.  Miles better than the first game, although it doesn't surpass Tomb Raider as my cinematic action game of choice.   Fun game, good characters, exciting story with some truly thrilling moments.  Could use a bit more exploring and a bit less shooting, but that's just personal preference.  If UC1 was a C, UC2 was a solid A-

Like I said earlier they took everything that was good about Uncharted 1 and 2 and turned it into something really incredible for Tomb Raider. If you really want to see what Naughty Dog is capable of buy The Last of Us Remastered. You can get a Digital Download code on Amazon for $15. (That's how I got it so I know it works). It is well worth the price of admission.

It's already gone, sorry about that.  I really do think there's a great game in there, unfortunately I've been spoiled by much better titles the past few months.  I honestly have no idea how I ever finished Unity.

So as someone who hated Unity which game do you think is better, Unity or Syndicate? Or are they both bad when compared to W3 and MGSV?

I just started playing tonight and so far I like it. The graphics are pretty and the framerate is smooth, I haven't experienced technical issues, either. The mechanics haven't changed much, and in fact after playing MGS5 they feel kinda clunky, but overall the controls are tight enough for you to parkour and assassinate. I'm really digging the world and the atmosphere, Victorian London is an awesome setting. Evie, the female assassin, is a badass!

Did you play Unity and if so how does it compare to Unity? (I hated Unity, but loved AC IV)

Quote from: Blackjack on October 22, 2015, 05:48:04 PM

Is Captain Cold a meta-human? Or is he just an arrogant nut job with a cold gun? I'm not sure.  icon_smile btw, I love the CW iOS app. It seems by far the smoothest and most stable of network apps I've used to catch up on TV series.

My visiting older brother and I were chatting about The Flash over dinner Tuesday, and he professed to be baffled by whether Tom Cavagnagh's character was Good or Bad. I explained you really have to watch the entire first season to really understand... and even than you may not fully understand, which I think is great. I found Season 1 enormously enjoyable binge watching over a few days; yet I can see in retrospect why I struggled to get into the show when just catching an episode here or there. When I couldn't see the big picture (forest for the trees, storyline metaphor wise  icon_smile), or I didn't catch the cool final seconds sequence each week, then I missed so much.

I always find comic book villains who are ambiguous are much more compelling than the strictly moustach-twirling dastardly doers. I think a vilain that
Spoiler for Hiden:
does genuinely GOOD things, but in service of an ultimately evil final goal
is really compelling.

Sometimes when watching Season 1 I was, "Why is this Barry Allen so GULLIBLE?" Just ultimately that's why he's likable I think, and different from all the Dark Superhero stuff -- he's naive, and really wants to believe in people and that people can change. And it keeps burning him. But I wouldn't want him to get too cynical in the show.

I suspect the cinematic Flash will differ because Zack Snyder is just not that much of an optimist, for better or worse.

Captain Cold isn't a Meta Human, he just has the Cold Gun and he's really smart when it comes to strategy and planning crimes.

I fear for Zach Snyder's Flash too. No doubt he will be dark and his suit will barely have a hint of red.

The problem is playing Uncharted 1 so far after the fact, after the general formula has been so significantly built upon and improved by other games since.  I can definitely see how it would have blown people away at the time.  Just a case of not aging well, I'm sure. 

I think you nailed it on the head here, especially when compared to Tomb Raider. They took everything that was good about Uncharted 1 and 2 and turned it into something really incredible for Tomb Raider. For a fair comparison go back and play the other Tomb Raider games on the PS3/360 (Underworld, the remake, etc), they aren't nearly as good, they were stuck in the old formula, yet they were released around the same time as Uncharted 1. It took Uncharted to show other developers how to make a modern 3rd person action game.
89  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Do you want a Resident Evil 7? on: October 07, 2015, 05:59:08 PM
RE 4 was my favorite game of the PS2 era. RE 5 wasn't nearly as good and RE6 was just plain terrible, so much so that it's the first main RE game that I haven't finished.

My hope is that they refine the controls and don't cram co-op into part 7.

I haven't seen anybody popping champagne corks over this yet. The House has been dysfunctional since 2010. The big question (as I see it) is whether it will remain that way under a new speaker or go completely rogue -- that is, whether the wingnuts will gain control.

That's the most likely outcome of this and it's quite scary. Their entire Planned Parenthood crusade is such horse shit and yet their voters drink it up like it's bacon covered beer.

While Boner wasn't the best speaker ever, he sure as hell didn't have a easy time of with when you consider the fact that the Tea Party is bat shit insane and has just enough power to prevent anything good from happening.

I just started playing this last week and holy cow am I loving it. GOTY so far, granted I'm only level 10 and I have a long way to go, but so far so good. I just have to remind myself that it's ok to skip side quests. Normally I go all in and complete a game like this to 100% but with the Witcher 3 I just don't see that as being possible on the first run through.

hmmm I don't know and if I did, is it automatic?  I never knew that was a feature.  I also let my ps+ lapse...  Waiting for a sale before renewing.  I guess my next option is cheat codes

You may be SOL if you let it lapse, but I'm pretty sure it's automatic so long as you have Plus. If it did save it you actually have to go into the plus part of the PS4 and tell it to re-download the save. I think it's over in the settings part somewhere.

Now that we have indulged all of this nonsense, we have 'boys' this with gender disorder  suing  school boards to use the bathroom if the opposite sex.  I have no idea how none of you sees anything wrong with this craziness.

Did you even read any of the responses prior to throwing all of us into the "not caring" pile? Unlike you most of us see the college example and the boy in the girls bathroom example as an outside occurrence that is not the new norm. But conservatives are latching on to it as the new "oh my gord the end is near" type of event.

I ended up buying the Final Fantasy X/X2 HD remake for PS4 on Sunday.  The HD version looked good on PS3...it looks stunning on PS4.  The character models and movements are still a bit janky, but the refreshed environments are incredible.

Too bad they didn't change the characters or the story with this latest version.

Yeah, I basically zoned out playing Rocket League for a few hours last night. The time slips away in season mode, that's for sure.

Adjust the difficulty down to Rookie. I had to do this and it made the games much more winnable.
106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playstation Plus - Now with lots more free games! on: July 08, 2015, 01:41:18 PM
I knew nothing about Rocket League prior to playing it this morning and I must say I really had fun with it. Granted I only played the tutorial and three season matches, but this game has fun written all over it. I'm betting that the online play is even better.

Also, this is the first month in a long time where I haven't already owned most of the games, so bonus points to Sony for that. Styx looks promising and GW3 will no doubt be a blast.

OK, I need some help or else I'm afraid I won't get any further into the game. I just finished the prologue.

First, let me say that I haven't played the other Dragon Age games. I'm thinking of going back and starting over after doing the thing on the Dragon Age website where you can import the world thingy.

However, my biggest issue is with combat. I watched the tutorial in the prologue about pausing during combat and issuing orders. I also have tried real time. Both ways, I'm getting dusted during combat. I can kill a damn thing. I did some online reading where folks are complaining it's way too easy. Therefore, I'm thinking I'm doing something wrong.

Can anyone give me a short guide on how to approach combat? Pause and give orders or real time.

My character I started with is a rogue, not sure if that matters.

Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk

Real Time is easier. I only really used pause during boss battles. One hint that may help is that you don't have to use the main character as your controlled person, if your main is an up close fighter consider switching to a ranged character and just attacking from afar while staying out of danger. The CPU does a good job of handling the other characters, especially at close range. This will let you see the action better and it will keep your controlled character out of trouble, all while they deal out big damage.

Hopefully it allows the devs to go back to their glory days of platforming. You know, before Microsoft ruined them.
