The problem with Sony is that everything is coming next year. Greatness awaits....and waits....and waits.....



Then there are the non-exclusives, for which the PS4 will have the superior console versions:





Against my better judgement I want to point out that you're assuming superiority on unreleased games.   Probably should follow the advice of some of my friends that no longer or very rarely visit this forum to engage anyone about the superior console, but until the game has been released no one can claim a superior version unless they have a release client for both games




Eh, it's a reasonably safe assumption at this point, the best you are going to see is parity.   Prior to release specs looked to show the PS4 hardware as superior, and everything released up to now pretty much backs that up.  It's going to be a pretty oddball title that performs uniformly better on the Xb1, and short of performance you are looking at if it will have any unique features on the format and dropping Kinect actually hurts them in that regard.

Microsoft does have a few more fall exclusives but when looking at exclusives I'm not sure any of them break into the top five selling games for the fall on their respective consoles, top ten might even be tough.  Are any going to outsell Destiny, CoD, Assassins Creed, Far Cry, or Dragon's Age?   Even on the remaster front I can see GTA outselling Halo and Last of Us.   So being the best console for third parties seems like a winning strategy to me right now.

Can't download beta from ps4. Link not showing up. Last time I saw it, it said only 71% codes left.
First time kind or errored out,  second time I know longer had the % and it just said I had access and hit X to download.  Of course that's not working now though.  I'll try again a bit later.

enjoyed MS presser.  They gave people games and they're being criticized for basically showing games. 

Missed EA but from what i'm reading on the net i didn't miss anything
EA was mostly concept trailers, though they did manage to crash PSN with the announcement of the BF:Hardline beta.  I *think* I got in, but can't download it right now.

they did learn from prior receptions.

And it just occurred to me--they didn't show a single sports game, did they?

Apart from Madden and NBA2K they don't have any.


They were tight with EA over Fifa, they gave it away free for the Europe launch.
373  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 09, 2014, 06:05:24 PM
Pretty underwhelmed by the MS showing.  I thought the most interesting things were the two indies, Ori and Inside(?).  Crackdown could go either way, the first was great for its time but the 2nd kind of faltered.  Phantom Dust and the Platinum to early to call as just CG, I know PD on Xbox has a lot of love but I never played it, and the CGI Scalebound trailer didn't do anything for me, kind of disappointing stylistically from Platinum.

I hope there are some good surprises and trailers today!

There's no doubt about it. Sony, in particular, has been extremely secretive leading up to this year's E3. I'm expecting good things. In yesterday's Bonus Round on GameTrailers, Jeff Gerstmann also mentioned that the game he was the most excited about this E3 was one he couldn't talk about, which is promising.

That was Mortal Kombat X, which wasn't announced when they recorded those during judges week.   Jeff loves MK.

But they play nothing alike! Not even slightly! That's why I mentioned those crazy examples above. If you are very selective in how you distill them (Deus Ex and Doom: First person shooter. Baldur's Gate and Diablo: RPG) their genres stop having any meaning at all. Would you ever tell someone "if you like Infamous, you're going to like Watch Dogs", or vice versa? Of course not! It's not a valid comparison. The similarities between the two games are superficial at best. They both take place in an open world, but if that's a genre, then it's worthless as a way to describe the game, and what's the bloody point then?
They play about as close to each other as Saints Row 3 did to Saints Row 4.

And? I haven't played either of those games, so I have no point of comparison. If you've got a point, feel free to expand upon it so that we're on the same level here.

Really?  You should as they were quite good.  PC version of 4 is a good port too.   SR3 was an over the top GTA style game. In SR4 your character got Infamous style super powers including a super speed very similar to the one you see in Infamous:SS.

One could argue they are both open world super hero games.  Aiden is just more Batman while Delsin is an X-man, but Aiden definitely has gadget level super powers, I mean he can black out an entire city never mind all the small things he can do like exploding pipes etc.

Quote from: jztemple2 on June 09, 2014, 02:49:30 AM

I have another question, if folks don't mind addressing it. I like open world games particularly because there are a number of things to do; not only side quests, but just activities. I'm thinking like the hunting tasks in Far Cry 3, blowing up water towers in Just Cause 2, steal and selling cars in all the GTA games, things like that. The Watch Dogs promotion materials make it sound like there is a lot of these activities in WD, but are they fun? I didn't play cards in Red Dead Redemption more than a couple of times because there was nothing really interesting in it, or bowling in GTA4. Neither was fun after you got over the novelty. Are the diversions in Watch Dogs fun after the novelty has worn off?

The game is loaded with side content.  There's the in world stuff like random crimes to stop, criminal convoys, fixer missions, gang hideouts, and ctos towers.  Then there's the betting games: poker, drinking, chess, slots, 3 card monte.  Then there's the virtual games and trips, like 6 of these.  Im probably missing some tasks too.

Being a vigilante good guy is a nice change from GTA -- you're still stealing cars and doing other bad stuff... but with heart! slywink I'm enjoying the invasion multiplayer style way more than I expected to, both on offense and on defense. I also really like the freedom I feel I have in how I approach missions and side missions. Most of the time I don't feel on rails, and I can choose my own balance of stealth, hacking, and shooty shooty.

I feel it's super inconsistent with the presentation though.  I think Sleeping Dogs handled things a lot better with the under cover cop main character.

This game is nothing like Infamous though, so that's not really a good comparison when talking about quality. Watch Dogs is far more ambitious in what it's trying to do, while Infamous could focus on perfecting its core gameplay to a much larger degree.

And characters.  Good guy Delsin is a way cooler vigilante than Aiden.

Also, who would have thought Wolfenstein would have way better characters than Watchdogs?

Yeah, this should be good for the long-term health of the game.  It's a fun game but like most FPS's their Steam player numbers have continued to drop since it launched.

Quote from: forgeforsaken on February 11, 2014, 09:13:34 PM

Fun game, but could easily be improved by getting rid of aim down sites and adding alt fire.

Hmm, but half the game is about customizing your weapons to do exactly what you want, so you just make your loadout with the exact firing/projectile types you like and switch weapons.  With alt firing modes I think a lot of players usually only used the one mode they prefer. 

Plus, part of the customization includes adding sights, scopes, etc. and I know I used sights all the time on my medium range guns.

Sights could easily be a selectable alt fire, but more my problem with ADS isn't using sights for zoom, bur rather the slow down movement and increase gun accuracy.  That ADS mechanic has just become over prevalent in FPS.

I'm on the other end. They are basically paperweights at this point. I've gotten some recent mileage out of The Show but for whatever reason Infamous 2 didn't suck me in and my Xbox One hasn't been turned on in probably three months.

I don't even know what's on the horizon the look forward to... NHL 15, I guess?

Are you buying games for the PC instead?  We just saw the release of Wolfenstein (fantastic), Watchdogs, and Transistor.
This years a bit of a mess with all the delays, but there's still a bunch of stuff coming out this fall.  Destiny being probably the biggest name of the bunch.

Nope. Not really interested in Wolfenstein and Watch Dogs didn't pass the review muster for me. I don't even know what Transistor is. Part of it is that I figure those titles will be cheap/free on PSN+ next year so I haven't pulled the trigger on them.

Destiny I am very interested in.

Basically if it's not an AAA title (or specific sports game I want), I can't be bothered anymore. Priorities change with age, I guess.
I guess your decisions are your own and that's all well and good, but don't bitch that there aren't any games, that's three good to fantastic games that have come out in the past two weeks.

One could hope that they would have the resources to make platform specific versions.

It's still diluting the resources.

With Titanfall, the 360 version was outsourced to a completely different company, wasn't it?  Meaning it wouldn't have had any impact on the quality of the XB1 version?

Recent Twitter posts imply it's the same deal with Horizons, and there is a second studio working on the 360 version.
