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!

If anyone isn't watching the Hot Deals forum, there is a $3 off ebay code that is good today: PERKS4ME

Has anyone ever tried buying one of the PS Plus trial account bundles from any sellers on there? Supposedly (and the sellers show huge amounts of perfect feedback) they send you 6 accounts with a 14-day trial on each. Log into it like a gameshare account and set it to primary and then use the 14 days from each one. So nearly 3 months of Plus for minimal cost. Wondering how it actually works though. If the trial on an account is already active, then how can the 14 days still be available in full? And if it isn't active until I log in and start it, then how does it not need a credit card added for each account?

Anyone tried this before?

Honestly as much fun as I'm having with Days Gone, and besides all the glitches and stuff within the game, there's a mediocrity in some of the gameplay where you've been there and done it before, that will warrant me to suggest waiting for a price drop of $40 or below. It has a good story in there sure, but it's convoluted and lost in translation as the game tends to jump around a lot and loses focus at times as you traverse the landscape and other things pop up that overshadow the tale it is trying to tell. It's like the game has A.D.D. or something. If I had a demo of the game prior to buying it, I would have gone back in time and stopped myself from buying it day 1 and wait for a sale.

Oath is still the best by a lot imo.

I'm guessing IX will have flash guard again, which makes the game rather boring imo. I'll watch trailers with gameplay though, to hope against hope.

ya. hopefully it will be good, im not sure about an Ys where half the game world is a huge city even though its supposed to be really big, it is prob a different team making Ys vs the teams working on the Trails stuff.

Interesting to read about Platinum games leaning towards going self-publishing. I thought Ninty was going to pretty much buy them outright. Now I am kinda worried about future Platinum projects since they won't have funding they need to make quality games, unless another publisher backs them.

it did say there will still be collaborations with big publishers, they may just move to self publish their own smaller projects

I'm sure they'll continue to work with Nintendo. Those two have an excellent working relationship. I'd also expect more collaborations with Square after the success of Nier Automata.

Ah I see. That's okay then. So long as big hitters like Bayonetta 3 are given the proper TLC it deserves to not end up like their lesser known projects like The Legend of Korra and/or TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan. EESH lol

Unpopular Opinion: Platinum has only ever made one good game. They are the most over hyped developer on the internet.

Not sure about just one but I actually mostly agree with this. For you, what is the one game?

Yeah, Automata was great. To me all their other games are just average games. Nothing special about them. I almost didn't play Automata because they made it. I didn't play it until Heavy and a couple others on here were talking about it. After that I knew I had to try it, and was glad I did.

I actually liked Vanquish a lot, and Bayonetta is a guilty pleasure though not a top tier action game. Transformers: Devastation was a bit too short but otherwise good. Those are definitely my favorites from them and I wouldn't put any of them in my personal top 100.

Bayonetta, Nier Automata and Transformers Devastation for me. The trifecta.

Maybe I'm still in the honey moon phase, but I like Days Gone alot. Yah it borrows mechanics, yah it has similar clunky gunplay as Last of Us, yah its "zombies" ... but dammit, it's fun and has an interesting story, which at the end of the day, is really all I care about. Plus it is quite a looker at certain times of the day with the lighting and the fog, and the sound design is pretty solid, with a great soundtrack. While it may not do too many unique things, it does what it does well for the most part, and is relaxing to play to me. I do not regret getting it. yes

I'd say it's Rockstar. Nothing they make interests me.

Don't like either now that you mention it. I also don't like Batman that much. That IP doesn't interest me.

I just thought maybe you meant Rocksteady, because I know how much you (as do I) dislike those Batman games.

Batman and The Hulk are probably the least interesting superheroes to me but honestly I'm not into that in general. It's been awkward telling people irl that want to talk about it that I really just don't care about Avengers End Game.

Well I've never liked Super Heroes ever since I was a kid. Can't really explain it, or give a reason other than 'because'

Since that movie came out, here is a typical day for me at the office.

Random co-worker: Hey have you seen End Game yet?
Me: No an...
Random co-worker: Oh man its so good, you'll love it.
Me: I don't even plan on it. Not interested.
Random co-worker: What?
Me: Yeah, not for me. Not into those movies.
Random co-worker: You're fudging with me, right?
Me: Nope.
Random co-worker: Whats wrong with you?
Me: Nothing.
Random co-worker: *walks away confused as to how someone couldn't possibly be into the MCU movies, and it ruins the rest of their day trying to figure it out*

Batman is pretty much the only superhero I like. I don't watch all of the movies or play all the games he's in, but I've never really liked any other superhero. A superhero is only as good as the villains he fights and Batman has the best ones.

Not an mcu fan either..it's weird people who've never been into anything nerdy just assume you are gonna be all about it if they know you're a nerd.. they don't understand how the mainstream ruins the things we love.

Can't stand the Doctor Who fandom. Makes me never want to watch it aside from part of an episode I saw where it looked like they hired the Power Rangers special effects people for a really lame giant bee/wasp thing.

Who ever predicted in here that the Days Gone story would have lots of ups and downs. You would be correct. I had an amazing run in the story last night. And what I just played was complete and utter trash. Typical trope bullcrap. I hate so much that almost every game has to pull this crap in the middle of their stories. This type of crap hasn't worked as a plot device in any media in 20 years. Stop doing it.

Honestly the Days Gone story starts off pretty non existent. 5 minute cut scene to explain what's going on. It isn't detailed or intriguing like Last of Us or God of War. What I played it seemed the story would be very vanilla.

The story starts off super slow. As I a said before, its a very slow burn game. The story didn't kick off until like 6-9 hours in or something like that. At least for me. I spent a lot of time just dicking around though. And the story seems to come in spurts. You'll have an or two without anything at all, and then bam 3 straight hours of story heavy stuff. Then an hour with hardly anything. Rinse and repeat. Its had some very strong points though. But also some really low points.

I'm all about the MCU, mainstream or not the movies are fudging awesome.

And yes I did read the comics as a kid too. I'm also all about Rockstar games. RDR2 was amazing, GTA5 was easily one of my favourite all time games.

Thers are some mainstream stuff I don't like, like GoT, that crap was real boring.

To each their own, but ya they did an amazing job with the MCU movies

id watched the first season way back, and now ive rewatched that and am into the third season, so everything from season 2 on is new to me. damn its soooo good. one of the best live action shows ive ever seen. ill always be partial to anime but this is as good as live action gets.

Ya I dunno I just found it boring.

But that's what I mean you get people that swear by GoT as the second coming, and I think it's boring. Then I love the MCU movies like Ant Man, Dr Strange, IW, End Game etc, and some of you guys couldn't care less.

Just a difference of opinion. I think where it gets stupid is when you throwing dumb labels or reasons like it's not 100% like the comic books, or whatever reason other than that's just not your thing.

As for me, I just can't get into FPS games (unless they're online PSVR games apparently), that's why I am so on the fence about cyperpunk 2077. The game looks amazing from any angle possible except it's FPS instead of 3rd person adventure type.

yes

I absolutely love GoT the books and the show but I could see why people would find it boring.

I can play FPS, but it's really got to be co-op. I've actually never played through Halo solo but I've co-oped the entire franchise twice. I wouldn't want to do it online either, this is couch co-op with a friend. Playing with randoms does not interest me at all.
