  • Difficulty scaling changed to make 3-player strikes easier
Let the nerfing begin! With the exception of some bullet sponge bosses didn't think they were that hard except for the heroics which should be.

It just took so damn long to kill anything.  I did not find the strikes fun because the bosses were sponges for sure.

I think my sleeper hit would have to be Diablo Ultimate Evil Edition for PS4.  I had it on PC and I even bought it on PS3 once I played the console version and saw how much I liked it.  The UEE was just too good.  I started with one character transfer from PS3 around level 50 and now I have a 70 of each class and Paragon level 103.  The ability to pick up and play and the latest patch stuff and adventure mode just make this really the ultimate edition.

Good call on Wolfenstein, that was fun and it wasn't even on my radar.

Destiny and Watch_Dogs were my biggest disappointments.  Watch_Dogs I could barely even play, it just didn't do anything for me.  Destiny is a boring loot grind.  I wish they just released a new halo game instead.

FYI this game went live digitally on PS4 at 9 PM Pacific time on Monday.  Wonder if that's a new trend.  I like it!

I had this downloaded and watched the timer click over through the last 30 seconds. Then came an agonizingly slow install. After an hour it was at 20% installed so I went to bed. This morning it was at 66%. I hope it's not my connection.

On the other hand. The pre-load was over 40 gigs - I wonder why it wasn't play ready at midnight EST.

Hmm weird, I had the preload done already, it starts 2 days before release.  I mean preload and install.  There was a huge update file yesterday though that was slow to download.

This weekend, I replayed the first 3 missions of the PS3 version because I wanted to have a good perspective on how the new version compared.  I also remember feeling overwhelmed by how sophisticated the controls were, especially when so much of the tutorial tips are popping up while you're dodging bullets.

I popped in the PS4 version this afternoon to try playing the same sequence, but within just a few minutes, the picture turned all blurry and wavery.  It was impossible to see what was happening.  I went to check the cables and realized that the display was fine -- the trouble was that I was crying.

What was wrong with me that I'd willingly subjected myself to that PS3 version for more than a few seconds?  Was my time so worthless that I could actually spend an hour squinting at a 720p screen and trying to figure out if that jaggy blur was an oncoming vehicle or a park bench?  And what was I going to do when I eventually finished the game and had to go back to looking at things that weren't GTA V HD?

Even this forum...God, I can't stand to look at these pixelated letters any more!  Everything sucks so hard now THE REAL WORLD IS RUINED FOREVER

I just have two young kids 4&7 and never plan on playing this during regular hours anyway, plus I'm sure my wife wouldn't appreciate walking in on a strip club moment, just want to know what to expect!

The language and violence from the get-go is very vulgar if that's a sensitive topic in your house.  Just an FYI.

Glad to see all the positive reviews and impressions.  I preordered this and Far Cry for ps4, and just today decided to only get GTA 5.  I'll eventually get FC4, but I never played GTA5 on 360 and the videos and reviews sold me. 

Question, is it possible to skip the strip club?

Long time reader, but new on the forum.  Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Welcome!!

Not sure about skipping content yet.  I just started playing on the current gen system.  I saw the high heel shoe icon and thought it was a clothing store until I got close, heh.  I think all the side stuff can be skipped though right?

Review text has been bad, but the scores are fine.  It's currently at 80% on game rankings for PS4.  If it's as bad as we're hearing, the scores should be 4 an 5s.

Great video comparison by the way.  I had not seen one on any of the other review sites and I think it is important with big name releases.



2.0.2 firmware is out for PS4, so you should be ok.

PC only? Consoles too? Can't find any info on platform.

I believe they said PC Only at first.

They're also making references to how they want to keep system specs reasonable, so yeah, I think PC only.  I hope console versions aren't far behind -- controllers are so much easier on me as far as repetitive stress these days.

I was thinking that blizzard games have so much iteration at first that they almost have to wait for a console version until 7-8 patches are out since it's so much easier to balance on PC.

Honestly how on earth are you guys even playing this game right now? The lag makes me quit after two rounds.

My experience is the same as yours. If they don't make some announcement about addressing the lag issues soon, I'll probably sell this as soon as I finish the campaign. On the plus side, I haven't enjoyed a CoD campaign this much in a long time. 

Did you play Ghosts? That one surprised me by how much fun it was. In the end it came out on top between these two.

I think I'll go back and play that game.  I never played more than a couple missions.  Campaign is fun you say?

More examples of AC engine jankiness.  I just an NPC walk up towards the hero and a dead target, then over a gate and through an outside wall.  This after another witnessed said assassination and walking casually away raising any kind of alarm. 

Got say I'm a little disappointed in the AI I've seen so far.  Little if any improvement over previous games. 

Bleh maybe I'll end up skipping this one.  Wish FC or GTA was releasing this week!

Wow, 350 yards rushing with Lynch getting 140 of them and 4 TD's.  Good to see you again, Beast Mode. 

I often wonder what they are going to do next year when Lynch is not back (no one actually thinks he'll be back do they?  Even though under contract?)

31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Alien: Isolation announced - kinda looks good? on: November 09, 2014, 04:29:06 PM
I finished this last night and while I think most of the game was excellent, I think they really blew it at the end.  The reviews that I read mentioned they really padded the game and I agree with it 100%.  Overall I think if you like the universe and enjoy stealth games, then you can't go wrong with this.  Excellent visuals, fun mechanics, and lots of the Alien. 

End game spoilers

Spoiler for Hiden:
They really added too many missions at the end and especially when you think the game is finally over (TWICE!) they just pull you back in. Just silly.  I did feel like there was a ton of repetition in being everyone's messenger boy.  It felt like the complains about Dead Space 1 where you just do everyone's bidding fixing x y z all over the ship.  As for the actual ending, I thought it was cheap and unsatisfactory to go through 20 hours of hell and then not at least be rewarded with a happy ending.  The story is already set in terms Amanda's timeline (unless they are going to say the company made that up to tell Ellen) so why have her drifting in space and mysteriously rescued?  I would have liked it to be over for real once we finally got into that ship.

I haven't checked for mine yet, but from what I've read elsewhere, many other people haven't gotten theirs yet.

Ok thanks.  I didn't want to get on the phone with their support to ask about this just yet.

When I got to the first mission when the Alien appears, the game was so freaky I couldn't play for more than 10 minutes.  After dying a few times and learning some tricks, I started enjoying the game so much more.  I'm close to the end now and this game is a damn love letter to the fans.  I've found so many little touches that come from the films and the environments are just amazing.  I'm playing on Normal and never really feel like the game is too difficult.  I sneak around without much trouble and there is more crafting materials than I can make use of.  If you were on the fence about this one and like stealth games and/or this universe, give it a go.

Why do you guys still play games on the PC?  Weird.

I hope this is a joke...  If not, I'd say it's for many reasons depending on the game or person: cheaper prices and frequent sales, higher framerates and resolutions, mod support, longer lifespan for games in general, faster patching, mouse and keyboard support, choice of gamepad, and on and on.

It was kind of a joke, but not enough of a not joke to warrant a real response like that.
