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!

Ya it's not super hard. I'm just playing the story on normal and getting used to the new intracicies before playing on ace. I've beaten them all on ace and will this one too I'm sure. The drones are more challenging than most previous opponents..sometimes just fighting a swarm of the high end drones is like fighting Yellow sauadron..well almost.. yellow 13 was no fool. It feels as fast as any of them I guess? The story is ace combat fair. The political intrigue between the nation's and it references back to 4/5/0 and some. Seems like maybe some corruption in the Osean govt, osea saying Eurasia is evil and vice versa, civilian targets accidently hit and Eurasia claming it's intentional and osea claiming they're being set up.. so typical AC stuff. It def borrows ideas for enemy super weapons from previous gamss too but that's part of the series to do that.

I'm enjoying the hell out of Far Cry 5. These last 2 have been great, imo.

Cool. I just played it for about 15-20 minutes in VR and it's incredible! The head tracking is on point and the sense of speed...hold mother of God! I felt pretty sick the entire time, though but I kept going until I couldn't go anymore.Also, doing a barrel roll is such a trippy feeling, but I got used to it after a couple of minutes. I wish I could play the regular game in VR, but I really don't think I'd be able to handle it.

Ya I don't know how I'd do with it. I will prob borrow one and try it sometime.

I'm about 17 missions in I think and it's still pretty ok. Mission 12 is a patriculary excellent throwback ;) trigger has got to be the worst call sign of the series though.

I'm also finding this to be the hardest game in the series..that or I'm rusty since there hasn't been one in years

Playing Onimusha: Warlords (HD) and it is still a lot of fun. Its only a remaster but I dont regret purchasing it, If it wasnt for this, I probably wouldnt have replayed it ever.

P.S. The Water puzzle still gives me nightmares...

Heartbreak... Retrying the last segment of the last mission...getting tired..finger slips and I hit quit mission.. it's in three parts and I just can't do it again. Maybe tomorrow. But thinking I was doing something wrong failing it I looked it up, so now I know what happens..and I kinda don't want to now. It's alright..but for me at least its not 4/5/0/6. It's prettier for sure..and handles fine I guess. Maybe I hyped it too much..maybe I'm just exhausted.

Played a lot more FOTNS last night. Did all the bartending and bounties up to the point where it puts stuff in the wasteland so I have to wait for morning as it won't let you drive out at night. The Colosseum opened up as well. As @tonymack21 informed me, the hostess mini-game is oddly stripped down here. The substories really started flowing in chapter 6 as well. Maybe I just missed a fair chunk of them previously. I'm making sure to walk around the city and look for triggers, since it isn't that big. I have a ton of new parts for the car now, but I can't mess with that until morning for that either.

This was a power buy at $20, but it's back up to $45 on Amazon now.

I got 2 chapters left to go in FOTNS:LP and yeah I think the sub stories and minigames are a bit watered down in this game so the story is more streamlined and showcased. I loved doing the bounties though. Also the wasteland traversing could have been deeper but that's fine the game is still awesome nevertheless. The bartending minigame is fun as heck too and hilarious to boot.

I also found about that point in the game the substories really open up..and and at points through the hostess game if you go in the nightclub you'll get substories with the hostesses like in Yakuza, not talking to her outside you have to go in. More hostesses will also pop up around town you can get and one does at highland village. They always want you to trade them something in exchange, most of it is easy to get either in the bazaar or the coliseum. Some are A rank and better than you'll get just through girls joining from playing through the mini game levels. I almost wonder if this game has been in production for awhile as the use of the old engine may suggest and perhaps this cabaret game is the early concept and 0 and k2 are the more refind ones? But that doesn't make sense as K1 doesn't use it.

I thought they kinda made the wasteland exploration minimal, which was ok.. it's almost all optional except for a couple story things. And strangely even though by the time I needed to do it I could put better parts on that would do what I needed to do...whether it was a rock breaking bumper or all terrain tires the game wouldn't recognize them, and I had to go back and pit the base pieces on that the story gave me.

Yeah I don't mind too much since with these games I like to do just about everything and it will probably clock in under 35 hours which isn't even breaking a sweat compared to Yakuza 0.

I hope the parts help a lot. With the base parts it's really slippy and slidey.

I never found it not to be kinda that way, but you kinda get used to it

Ace combat 7. So I was exhausted last night I guess. Beat that last mission just now, way easier. There's a trick to it I won't spoil.

Just checked out the trophy list.. def not doing all that lol

Overall it's pretty awesome. It said I didn't get a couple of trophies for things I thought for sure I did..not sure yet if this has branching paths depending on some choices but there aren't choices to make unless I didn't notice them.

There are a couple of missions that are a little frustrating, and I didn't recall having to retry as many missions in the older one as I did here, but that's not so much a knock on the game..there are just a couple of missions where you have to rack up a certain number of points and you have to be very calculated where you're spending your time. Several times on one mission like that I'd get down to needing just one or two more targets and time would run out.

I play with the old style (expert) controls and a couple of times it seems like a part of a mission would be designed for the standard, so I didn't care or that. Overall project aces did a pretty nice job. You cant hope to unlock all stuff in one go but that's not new iirc it takes a couple plays to afford everything.
I was able to get the f15, su35 and 37 in this play. Couldn't afford the f22, yf23, su47 or Su57 they are expensive.

I still think I like 4/5/0/6 better.. but will see after more time and reflection. Maybe as good as 6.. but no wingman commands..they don't cover you and it seems like they skipped on things to put in multiplayer and vr .. I'm not against those things but when it costs key things to campaign it's kinda eh. There are times when it's like hey trigger do this..only you can.. oh and we will fly around and watch while 20 enemies shoot at you...but you got this!

I may pick up Ace Combat 7 on a sale. I'm intrigued. Haven't played an Ace Combat game in over a decade though.

There hasnt been one in about that long? 6 was forever ago and assault horizon is gross. This one pretty good though. It's at least as good as 6 of I really got down to it probably but that 4/5/0 trilogy is just the best

This one is odd..no wingman commands..they don't help cover you or destroy things.. it's weird.. it's like they scaled back on things to make room for multiplayer and vr and that held it back.

@tonymack21 Damn, you tore through that fast! No wingman commands is a bit of a bummer, but everything else sounds pretty great. I'm gonna finish up the VR stuff today and then jump into the main game.

Ya I played for a while Friday night then about 10 hours yesterday probably. Well under 20 I'd say. And I still felt like it took me longer than usual ac game..but maybe ive just played the others so many times.

Ya I kinda got down to use it, turn a little early and do power slides and stuff...at times it's kinda cool. It's annoying for the races but I usually pass on races in non racing games.

It sounds like a bad disk drive to be honest.

I don't see how the HDD would do it unless it's also happening with digital only games.

Yeah I agree with this. The lasers they use burn out after a few years. Not a terribly difficult fix, but a pain in the ass to tear the whole thing apart.

Damn that's a tough gig. Could try sending it back to Sony by means of tech support. I'm not sure how much they would charge though. Might make sense to just go out and buy a new console if the repairs will be high from Sony.

Sony's repairs will be high. The part is only like $20-30 and you can do it yourself if you aren't afraid of tearing into things.
