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!

I can't wait to play this game. It's insane to me how divisive it is. People either absolutely love it or they think it's boring. There's like no middle ground. I think that's why God of War is going to take most of the GOTY awards for 2018.

It baffles me when I see some say RDR2 is boring, because it's a slow burn and it is kinda meant to feel that way and I absolutely agree with your God of War statement and I loved both GOW and RDR2 almost equally, but GOW for me I feel should take GOTY in most areas because of simply how they executed the story without rebooting the franchise. Most people who I've heard and seen play GOW are nearly absent and nowhere near as divisive as people with RDR2. Now that brand has a bright and ominous future ahead whereas RDR2 leads into RDR1 but it kind of just ends after that, which is fine and all for the time being, but not if you're looking to continue and breathe life and longevity into a franchise. Corey Balrog did and achieved what most others are envious of in reviving a brand without rebooting the characters at their cores and for that alone I tip my hat to him for his success.

I always tend to believe that the newer title stays in peoples minds better when it comes to GOTY. At least with gamers.

ya I don't get that with rdr2 either, its one of the top 10 games ive ever played. its unrivaled but by very few experiences. its more an experience at times than just a game. it can seem slow at times but they are setting things up for a powerful finish as well. even spiderman was a lesser experience following it right away, im playing small games like VA-11 HALL-A and watching anime for awhile before playing another to settle down from it, this is like post witcher 3 withdrawl all over again where nothing mesasures up.

I think i sometimes just get lost in all of the sidequests, as i feel that i have to do every one that pops up. The same thing happens to me with Assassin's Creed games, as well. I love them for a while, then it just kinda feels like more of the same. With RDR, i just always kinda feel like i'm playing GTA on a horse, no matter how much i try and love it. I'm gonna keep going on it for now, as i played a bit of Katamari this morning, for a break.

Don't even get me started on the new AC game. I finished that game last week after a month of slogging along and I can confidently petition why people should avoid it at all costs, unless they rather enjoy 120 hour grind fests with a lackluster ending.

They stopped caring about that many games ago and haven't looked back. They still throw in a modern day part but it's nothing good at all it's half assed at best.

I havent' beaten Odyssey though only put like 10 hours into it but I highly doubt anything changed, TalonJedi would know.

Yeah that's around the time they stop caring soon after that. At one time I thought Desmond's story was one of the best in all of gaming but they ruined it.

ya the real world stuff up to revelations/3 was intriguing, seeing how what was happening in the past was affecting it in the present day of the game. black flags real world thing was ehhh.... rogue and unity are up next for me at some point, as I do want to play the whole series as I get to them around all the other million things I want to play.

Yeah there's still good gaming to be had in the series. I thought Syndicate was a really fun game. I even enjoyed Origins with the rpg elements. But Odyssey is more of the same as Origins and way more of a grind.

The Cult of Cosmos is the start of the Templars. So its in this game, but its not as good as in the past games. Because you don't find out they are the "origins" of the Templars until very, very late into the game. And from all the people I've talked to, a lot of people missed this. Why? Because you find this out as some throw away bullcrap side quest that most people wont do because they are so sick and tired of side quests at that point in the game. Also the Cult stuff was implemented so poorly. They looked at Mordor games and said, hey this nemesis thing is cool, lets try something like that. But lets split out it into two separate systems. We will have the cult and bounty hunters (or what ever the fudge they were called). And then they fudgeed up both systems.

And the future stuff has become such a joke now. Such a joke. The best thing about these games early days was the promise and potential for future games to have the majority of the games to take place in the modern day. And then they fudgeed that all up. Just threw that in the trash. And then people freaked out and now we get these horrible throw away mini things. Then what they did with it in this game, is just, fudge you ubi. There is something so profoundly stupid that happens in this game, I can't spoil it for anyone who hasn't played the game. But, fudge them for doing it. Its so out there and just wtf are you even doing.

Man, the lack of the real world stuff is one of the reasons I lost interest in the series. I was hoping Odyssey would be the one to pull me back in, but none of you guys seem to have enjoyed it and I really don't think I can handle something that just feels like a grind.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I had fun with the game. Because I do like the core of what the game play is. But it is one of my top 3 most disappointing games of his year. And its probably on my top 10 of most liked Franchises of all time. AND on my top 5 most disappointing franchise of all time. So take that how you will.

Ya what Archer said. Cult is the birth of the Templar order kinda. I mean the game had so much damn potential. Gameplay is fun at times and it infuriates me that it was about 40-50 hours longer than it needed to be. I was looking forward to this game until I heard about the microtransactions and sheer audacity for them to come out of their slimy malformed faces and say that we need to cough up $10 to level up at a barely normal feeling pace. I mean Odyssey was an okay story and did have some cool core mechanics, they were just both buried under some of the most throwaway cookie cutter side quests and nonsense grinding I have ever witnessed. All because Ubi had to pacify it's shareholders to make this game stretch out and last a good part of 2019 since there is no new Creed game coming this year and you can't count the AC3 remake, cause that is technically another fatigued port. I truly think I am done with Ubi games for a good, long while. Odyssey put that nail in the Ubi coffin for me.

Quick external hard drive question because Google failed me or I didn't search what I wanted correctly. If I have an external hard drive plugged into my PS4 and I want to move it to another one so I don't have to install games and download updates again, will it work like it does on Xbox One or does it reformat and all that nonsense like it does for PS4 internal drives? Does anyone know?

I've never put a game on an external so I don't know if it will play the game (it should). But I've used the same external between my two systems to add mod files for a game (PES). And to play media files. And never had an issue.

Im almost positive you can transfer instalations between the drives. But Im not sure if you can have 2 externals at the same time

I know for sure you can't have 2 at the same time, but I think you can transfer from one to another.

I got a 3tb external last year and moved exsisting installation over just fine. It took awhile but it was transfering 850 gigs. I have had no issues with playing of an external. I have not tried two externals but everything I have read says the you could have two connected only one will work.

Lol same. Doesn't look like I'll be getting much work done at the end of the month.

RE2 is one of my favorite games of all time and I love the Kingdom Hearts series. Can't wait for the 25th!

I am interested in KH3, but it takes a deep backseat to RE2 to me.

Silent Hill 2 is up there for me as well. Probably number 4 on my list behind REmake, RE2, and Dead Space.

I've beaten all 8 Silent Hill games, even the crappy ones. Shattered Memories, Homecoming, Downpour, Origins and 1-4.

I've also beaten every Resident Evil except crappy spinoffs like Outbreak.

Forgot about that one, no I didn't. I bought it but it wasn't my type of game. It's not even really a Silent Hill game it's just a game with the name slapped on it.

If Konami cared about video games anymore they should give Silent Hill 2 the proper remake like RE2 is getting but they don't because they fail at life.

I seriously think they could sell a set of remakes of 1-4 with P.T. as a bonus and charge $200. They'd probably sell millions.

They don't care, their CEO doesn't even like video games. How he got to be Konami's CEO is a mystery, but it just shows how dysfunctional they already were. They should have made Kojima CEO.


BTW one of the funniest things ever is watching Konami's 2010 E3. They had wrestlers wrestling on stage and guys who couldn't speak english, speaking english. Probably a sign of things to come.

FOTNS is absolutely the perfect anime choice for a Yakuza game.
