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!

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.

^^^Yes. This. I would love a new Deadpool game featuring a ton of cameos including the web slinger. I'd even take Nolan North back as the voice of Deadpool.

I'd love to see The Hulk get this treatment as well. Maybe a well told Bruce Banner story where much of the game play revolves around trying not to get angry. But when you do..... holy crap.

Or a story in which he is sent by Ironman to planet whatever and he has to escape. And hes bug mad about that crap.

Remember to learn to kick people into the air early on. It took me forever to learn that if I can launch them into the air first, it makes it so much easier to take 'em down.

I think I finally heard a SABLE agent say something like "Don't let him get you in the air" and I was like "Ooooooh. Gotta learn air launches. Gotcha." Since learning them, launching dudes in the air and wailing on them is so much fun!

Ha. I'm hitting that age where I can't keep track of all the button combos and what-does-what at times. So much to memorize. So many combos. Gah.

I must have missed the tutorial thing telling me how to knock guys in the air. It wasn't until I was almost done the story mode where I was like "Oh! pushing *this* does that!"

O yay

I didn't memorize any combos, but I think holding square knocks people up (PS4) and I got by with pretty basic combos.

Finished up VC4 and I'll be starting FOTNS Paradise Lost tomorrow.

I am glad the last mission is actually hilariously easy since you have to do it twice for the true ending. After I spent a lot of time on it and failed the first time around I changed what I was doing and beat it in a couple turns. The key is pretty much

the fact that you have to damage it with grenadiers, I didn't realize this at first and I was not at all suited to take it out. Beating the tank is quite literally all you have to do, I was thinking I'd still have to get Riley to the submarine, but you don't have to. Once you know where the enemy tank will be on the 2nd turn you know where to set up Riley and block off the tank's los with Cactus so she can't get killed. Then the entire 2nd turn is just piling up overpowered orders on her and taking out all 4 radiators with just two shots. Literally impossible to miss.

I'm good with that! I enjoyed I-4 and CVX. Anything after was a bit hit and miss, but I haven't disliked any of the main series. I also liked RER2 and Outbreak. I don't think I cared for the rest.

Mikami created RE and did 1-4 and Code Veronica (including the first Resident Evil Remake). We probably would have gotten a way better 5 and 6 if he was still around but he said he would cut his own head off if RE4 was on any console but Gamecube. Capcom the kings of ports put RE4 on PS2 he left and the rest was history. Then he went on to do Vanquish, Shadow of the Damned and The Evil Within 1 and 2.

He didn't do the second Evil Within, did he? I thought someone else did that.

I played the RE2 demo. Amazing. Truly a great remake and reimagining. The camera screamed RE4 but the atmosphere is purely old school RE1-3. It was a mere taste though. Over in the blink of an eye. Cant wait to play the full game.

Yeah man, those 30 mins went by so fast. It was definitely that blend of classic RE with a bit of RE4 and even a bit of RE7 as well. It was everything I wanted and more. The 25th can't come soon enough!

For some reason I don't really care for demos, unless they give you something different than the main game like P.T. did. I'd rather just wait two weeks for the game to come out.

Maybe it's just me, but I never got into the KH series. It's one I tried starting a few times, but like FFX, it bores me and I lose interest. Even looking at the list of games they released on PS2, other than DQ8, I can't say I even see any great games. (Well, okay, I see another if I include their late PS2 publishings in the EU market only.)

I use to like KH, but I think I've lost interest at some point in the 10ish YEARS it took for a sequel to release. Maybe Kingdom Hearts 4 will release before year 2164

I'll wait for it to be bargain bin me thinks.

It's not just you...

The Disney aspect kills any interest I would have in it as a JRPG.

I thought the same thing until I actually played Kingdom Hearts 1 and realized it was a great JRPG regardless to what characters were included. I personally just found the Disney aspect a breath of fresh air - the sort of crossover that wasn't being done a lot at the time. Of course I've never been one to hate Disney just for being Disney, so I dunno how much that factored in for other folks.

Never beat it though, or played any of the following games. Still on my ever-growing "to beat" list, so maybe someday now that I'm back in the Playstation camp.

I always had a super soft spot for Kingdom Hearts. It fused together 2 very important entities from my childhood. Disney and Final Fantasy characters alike. Sure the dialog is cheesy on the Disney side and stiff on the FF side. Sure the story is more complex than Chinese algebra. Sure it takes forever for the games to come out, but when you're playing and invested into the core game, it's as smooth as butter and engaging to boot. I speak solely for KH1 and KH2. None of those other spin off nonsense games really matter to me.

I'm not going to not play a good game because it has Disney characters. I enjoyed and beat KH 1, but never beat any of the other ones. They kind of bore me. I'm hoping 3 is more fun to play through.

Kingdom Hearts II had a bunch of FF characters so I'd expect the same with III.

If there aren't any FF characters in KH3 then they're doing it wrong.

Yeah I thought that was the purpose of KH, to see Goofy with the Final Fantasy people.

I mean, if they want to replace the FF peeps with say Star Wars characters, far be it from a simpleton like me to begrudge their vision.

I'm not sure w/e is an appropriate grade on that game... I thought it was pretty pukey. I didn't say as much when I let it go free again, mind you. Old musous age terribly. Everything I've played since Hyrule Warriors has been alright.

This game is super legit. I'm not even that much of a fan of the anime and it still kicks mega butt.
