Doesn't look like there's a discussion thread for PS4, unless I'm blind. Let's discuss PS4, then, in this thread.

Recent news: according to Kotaku, Gamestop is no longer taking preorders for the system. Hope you got your preorder in!

There are a couple of really good story summaries on Youtube. Either one should get you all caught up. Have fun trying to make sense of it all lol

That was hilarious. Who knew Pumbaa was the true antagonist of the series lol. All the jokes aside, it is actually a decent recap video.

Impressive stuff from Spider-Man. I knew it would do gangbusters. I'm sure they are already hard at work on Spider-Man 2 or they soon will be.

Dude, that footage got me so hyped. Really looking forward to trying it in VR although I read that you can only play a few non-story missions. It's a bit of a bummer, but it should still be a really cool experience.

I'm just waiting for the Minerva, Kai and Riley figures lol. So far the only confirmed figure is Crymaria (no surprise).

Speaking of Crymaria that fight is silly. First time in the game I really used orders (attack boost and penetration). Did manage to get A rank at least...

I see what you did there.

Defense boost is great too. It makes you nigh invulnerable. Use it to complete army Navy mock battle a few times in like a minute for massive money and xp

I'm absolutely blown away, with how good they're made the Spyro trilogy look. Just started it this morning, and it's bringing back those fond memories of PS1. The controls aren't frustrating like i remember them being, back in the day, either. I really needed a game like this, after RDR2. I have no complaints, especially with Spyro only costing me a bit over $8, out of pocket.

Yeah it's a remarkable remaster. Toys for Bob should remake more classics. Perhaps we can get a Gex trilogy remaster next.

The original Spyro is such a special game. I'm glad people are enjoying it and that it has held up. I was worried that it would feel too dated. I'm looking forward to revisiting those games at some point. Maybe the reception to this trilogy will make Insomniac consider a new Spyro game. I wouldn't be against that idea.

I would love Insomniac to spearhead one final Spyro game that feels like a culmination of their greatest ideas into 1 package, kinda like they did with Ratchet and Clank a couple of years ago.

Dont, mixing Disney and Final Fantasy has always been wrong and bad. I find the whole thing corny as fudge.

However. They are typically very great games. When I hear Donald or Goofy I just get taken out of the experience.

If you like kingdom Hearts good for you, just do it somewhere I cant see it.

this has been my struggle getting into the series in the past. I may give it another go in the future though as I feel like im missing out, but I always run back into that.

All jokes aside I am on the fence about it, I don't really care about disney characters etc, but I am looking for a new game to get into and that is the only coming out soon that I can think of that is a 1st player good game.

If you can shut your brain off and just enjoy it for purely nostalgia, KH is a fun action/RPG romp. I have had KH3 preordered for about 3 years and I may have to take a day or 2 off in February since both that and RE2 drops on the same effin' day.

I liked the former KH games alright....the gameplay is Average, but I'm a Disney/FF fan so the presentation always appealed to me. I think I may put KH3 in the "wait for a sale" bucket with Resident Evil 2, God of War, Bayonetta Switch, and DK Tropical Freeze.

if youre looking for a good rpg there are lots of good ones, id play tales of vesperia over KH if id never played the old ones, but there are some good summary videos to catch up on KH story at least so that's good, KH1 in particular ive heard hasn't aged well and from my memory of it I can def see that. Im looking forward to finally really sinking into the Trails of series as well.

I don't really know about or feel those "Tales" games, it seems like a slog, some of the games are remasters or were on portable or are 10 years old etc., everyone here seems to either hate one and love another, then another person hates that same one because it's long and boring etc. There's no nostalgia for me since I've never played any of those.

I think I just want a new RPG or 3rd person type game and not .

When Kingdom Hearts III hits you all with that 90 on Metacritic, you'll all be singing a different tune. Hopefully anyway lol. Seriously though, I played Kingdom Hearts 2.8 which gives you a taste of what KH3 will look and play like and I was completely sold. It plays like a dream! I'm certain it's going to be a great game.

I mean, c'mon. A sixty trillion dollar Square Enix game isn't going to average below 80%. Game journos have such completely diminished critical eyes (or are looking at things other than the actual game to come to a conclusion) that unless the game is quite literally broken, it's gonna score well. Kingdom Hearts was literally designed to appeal to as large a spectrum of consumers and gamers as humanly possible. It could be 100% non-interactive and it'd still get a 78 on Gamespot.

You're not wrong. Odds are it'll score over an 80 just because of brand recognition and the budget. But like I pointed out, based on Kingdom Hearts 2.8 which is a prologue to KH3, this game will also review well because of how well it plays. I can't stress enough just how fun and mechanically sound the gameplay is. It probably won't hit 90 because the story will be a mess and because very few games hit 90, but the combination of that mass appeal you mentioned and the fantastic core mechanics should lead to very positive reviews from critics and gamers alike. I understand that the KH games don't really hold up at all, but I hope that doesn't stop people from checking this one out.

TalonJedi87

Ya I'm predicting KH3 will sit at about an 7.5-8 average in the ratings with critics but fare better with fans. I hope I'm proven wrong though and it gets a RDR2 or GOW like score but that's a fat chance since it's been in development hell the last near decade.

Short. It's only about 3 hours long. It should give you a taste of what to expect from KH3.

Ratchet and Clank (the newest one) was probably my favorite platformer in recent memory up until Odessey came out. They did an amazing job. I plan on getting spyro at some point maybe on a better flash sale or something, I never really played much of the original so it's basically new to me.

Insomniac is in a pretty great place right now. They could make a new R&C, a new Spyro, another Spider-Man game, or even a sequel to Sunset Overdrive and people would be happy. Not many developers have that many options.

there is a rumor that spiderman is getting more dlc that will feature the fantastic four, I would be all about this as FF is a fav of mine, use to read every issue back in the day. while I am in for that, Id rather they work on a sequel than continue to release $25 dlc chapters.

I just want Fantastic Four or the X-Men to get the Spider-Man treatment. A proper AAA game with co-op for either one of them would be so sweet! I'm not interested in paying money for Fantastic Four DLC. I hope it's just a new suit or something.

Preach. Also, just look at the metacritic scale and how it's different for everything BUT video games... Read: it makes more sense for other media. For some reason, games need inflated scores to make people feel better about buying them.
