This topic had many older posts which were moved here:

http://gametz.com/VideoGame_Discussion/playstation...
















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 you haven't played since it updated, just delete the game data and re-install/download. Sony pulled update so it wont download again. I'm probably going to do that tonight myself.

Same. Put in 3 hours today on a pro, and no issues on my end with the 1.06 patch. Must be other factors besides just the patch - maybe how far they're in, etc.

@gypsy Yakuza 6 spoilers...


So Haruto really is Haruka's kid and Yuta of all people is the father??? Sigh. I was so sure the kid was just someone Haruka rescued and trying to protect. I'm pretty bummed now. I was hoping we'd get some sort of flashback and we'd find out Haruka was doing something cool like training to be a bad ass like Uncle Kaz and just got herself caught up in something crazy. Instead she just getting knocked up by some random dude. I just had to pause the game to get that all out lol. Just left Onomichi on a boat.

I just found this article about a new Days Gone patch gone live to address audio issues.

https://comicbook.com/gaming/2019/05/01/new-days-g...

They also notated this:

"Known Issues

The crash on startup and other issues in this scope are being investigated. As of now, if you haven't downloaded Patch 1.06 and start up Days Gone, you will remain with Patch 1.05 active. Updates to come."

How can a game go "gold" if it needs constant patches? Do they really test games on the actual console or just test on PCs and "assume" it's all good?

This wasn't made for PC so I assume they test it on actual PS4s. Every single PS4 and X1 game I have ever played had update patches. I think when you have 80+ GB games with millions of downloads across 3 different system types (fat, slim, Pro) with different build types within those 3 you're going to get these types of things.

The game has only been out since last Friday and they're already patching buds which is a good thing in my opinion. We're never going to see a prefect working product for everyone on launch day on ANY game considering how big and variable these are. especially when you have to account for 4K on some machines, 1080p on others etc.

Some users experiences zero issues with this game, which shows you how varied a response you can get.

It did have a minor patch actually, about a week ago raspberry

Since the Switch era began it's not uncommon for Nintendo developed games to have day one patches (Yoshi didn't have one and that surprised me, but then again the game was finished and available to pre-purchase on the eShop 3 months ahead of release). But most of their post-launch patches are usually so small that if you have auto updates enabled it's possible to not even notice that they had downloaded in the background. It's way different than the mess of a day one update Wii U had at launch.

Was Borderlands the first "looter shooter"? I'm sure it probably wasn't, but probably the first "big" one.

Yeah don't remind me. I'll never buy another GaaS game again. Dragon Age 4 will be GaaS apparently. Granted, I never liked that series but after Anthem I'd never buy anything by Bioware again.

It wasn't the first, but it was the first that wasn't a top down looter shooter. There were many diablo style loot games that were top down in that style where you shot guns. But Borderlands popularized the term, and brought it forward out of that old style of game. And it blew up from there.

No more "sharing" guns you find. Pick up a purple, there is still that purple there for the co-op partner, each getting it scaled to their level.

In this demo, a level 5 playing with a level 25. The level 5 sees level 5 enemies and does that level damage. They are all scaled to the other level for the other player.

I'm sure it's all fun and games in BL3 until they start incorporating microtransactions and loot boxes to get the really "good" gear and guns. I want to be excited for it, I truly do. I'm a big BL2 nut, but it's being published by 2K Games, a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive and last time I checked Strauss Zelnick did not stop liking money.

They could have at least made it Overcooked 2, the original has been borderline free many times. I still think the service is well worth the cost but this is a very weak month for me.

Weak month. They raise the price, take away PS3 and Vita games, and then give out two indie games that have been on sale for like $5 a piece in the past. Unbelievable!

That said, Edith Finch is a dope game. Well worth checking out if you are into this type of game.

And part of their "we have a crap load of loot, look at all these loot-splosions" is because of all Anthem crap with bioware and bungie with Destiny. Its a hey remember how we did it, we know you want loot and we will give it to you. We aren't like those other looter shooters were they don't actually give you loot.

True. They would tarnish their rep severely if they went the cookie cutter paid in game items route. I remember them giving away free golden chest key codes on their FB page all the time for BL2. It was awesome. I hope they do the same in BL3. I heard that just for watching the live gameplay reveal stream they're giving ppl free key codes for loot too which is cool.

The further I get into Days Gone, the more I'm convinced this is a goty candidate. The character stories are amazing. And the way the story is handled is great. The general game play is average, but fun. But the story stuff is what shines and it stands apart from other games. Its on the same level as The Last of Us in that regard. Its too bad people will miss out on this game because of some average reviews or bad word of mouth because of early bug issues. At least Bend is working very hard to fix the issues. They've released 7 patches in the 6 days the game has been out (two actually were before launch, combined in the day one). These guys and gals are working over time to fix all reported issues. And I don't think they are getting enough credit for it.

@Kommie actually it was at that point.


The second camp that you go to, with the old lady. There is one directly in front of her camp. Which I think appears after you make the choice of who to give the drugs to. If you leave the camp and go to the right, in front of that lodge with the ambulance in front of it. Then follow the road to the T intersection. There is a cave across the T intersection. One is in that cave during day. And roams around that area at night.

DiamondDave wrote:

It presents a very nice 2160p image that looks just as sharp to me as the One X image of the same game in real life, even if it did get there with checkerboard upscaling of 1440p on some games, and looks better than the 1080p counterpart, especially on a big ass screen.

For only $150 or so more, to me it seems like an easy buy if you're running a 4K setup. I think it's good at what it does, and definitely cannot wait till the PS5 is relased and we get true native 4K60 HDR (which the One X can't do either) on pretty much every game.

GPU technology is getting better and better. Supposedly the PS5 is going to push 10-12 TF whereas the Pro does about 4. Using a 7nm chip that helps with heat issues, faster RAM, more RAM, 3 times the GPU output, 4K60 shouldn't actually be that difficult, especially when games are console optimized.

Don't get me wrong, I have a see to believe attitude too, but i also know i am buying it on day 1 regardless of what it does. I just don't think it's crazy for a $400 or $500 console to push out 4K60 with modern day technology.

new info from platinum. 2 more games in development, they're never going to finish anything at this rate.

interview with the head guy, heres the details.

Bayonetta 3 will see a change in design process based on Platinum Games' experience on developing Bayonetta 1 and 2.

Platinum Games is midway through the development of an unannounced title which "has never been done before," according to Inaba. He added, "I know a lot of people say that, but the game we're working on truly is unlike anything else. Even for our varied history of veteran game developers, this is something that has never been designed before. So from a game design perspective, we're very excited right now."

Platinum Games is aiming to move towards self-publishing, as it will eventually have the "freedom" to own its intellectual properties and make independent decisions on future directions.

"2019 will be an incredibly important year for us," Inaba said. "Without speaking directly to the number of titles we may or may not announce, I can say it's going to be a year of some major new approaches, new challenges and new methods for us. Basically, we're building a new foundation that in later years will pay dividends. For us, new challenges are going to be very important."

Platinum Games' new approaches include a move away from relying on external publisher funding, as well as an examination of how it structures game design.

While Platinum Games has worked with third-party partners in the past on properties it does not own, such as Bayonetta, NieR: Automata, and the upcoming Astral Chain, it is currently working on two new intellectual properties owned entirely by the studio, neither of which have been announced.

The creation of wholly-owned properties will not result in the end of third-party collaborations, however. "There are still going to potentially be games in which we partner with publishers to do big things with big IPs," Inaba said. There might be some co-publishing options where we're doing some of it and they're doing some of it to make a larger game, and there might be situations where we're going to be self-publishing larger games as well."

I'd probably put Rockstar near the top of that list. GTA6 is going to be the Avengers Endgame of sales and pre-purchases etc.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

i dont at all think its dumb that i dont like them because they dont follow proper lore. for old school fans thats every reason and a valid reason not to be into them. when your hardcore hobby goes mainstream it usually doesnt come out the other end as the same thing. mainstream ruins everything it touches, star wars is a great example... people who had no interest in any such thing in years past because "nerrrrrds hahaha" and now its trendy so they are all about being there on premiere night. same with the MCU.

if you dont watch at least the entire first two seasons of GoT you also dont really see whats actually going on, you get pieces, and there are multiple things going and they arent really coming together and then they start to, if you ever get the inclination to give it another go and can get that far it gets a lot more interesting, it is a slow starter in that first season, but the setup is important for everything else as is slow burn type stuff.

FPS is probably my least favorite genre of game but if anyone can make it work in a way that makes me interested its the holy prophets. i wish it was just the witcher in a sci fi world but im sure they wont put out something that isnt good and isnt ready.

And I haven't seen a single thing about it from any source. Its not like Bethesda to not over saturate their advertising.

IGN has had a ton of coverage over the past few weeks. They were doing special IGN exclusive interviews and gameplay previews, it seemed like a daily thing on the site. The gameplay looks like it's going to be fun with a lot of crazy weapons and some wild enemies.

Got Days Gone after reading what @TalonJedi87 and @Dasgessabel said about it, and I am really enjoying the game so far. I've played around 10 hours, and my only complaint is the frame dips. Definitely drops below 30 fps semi-regularly for me on a slim ps4. It feels like a mish-mash of Sons of Anarchy, Uncharted, Last of Us, The Walking Dead, and Far Cry.

Yeah, it's a solid mix of a bunch of other games and such, and it has an interesting narrative. The only technical issue I've experienced are some frame dips periodically (ps4 pro here) - Archer said they got worse in the last portion of the game, but I haven't gotten there yet. Cool to see more people enjoying it, as it got sort of a lukewarm reception from critics. Honestly may be the first longer game like this I will have finished in quite a while.

I just finished Days Gone. 7 out of 10 unfortunately. I've never played a game with such an up and down story. And it over stays its welcome by about 10-15 hours in my opinion. The end of the game suffers because of this I feel. Another one of those we don't know how to end this, and we had all these ideas so here they all are. If you're on the fence, wait for a sale. Weakest Sony game of this gen, and I really wanted it to be better because there is a lot I love about it. I had fun with it for the most part. And there is some strong story moments, just not enough consistency to make it a great game. I think the game could have been delayed another year for some polish and tightening up. It's too bad it wasn't. This feels like it could have been special. I also wonder if Bend was rushed to meet arbitrary deadlines, which seems to be the norm unfortunately these days. I really liked a few of characters, and they do a good job of making you hate some of them too. I just wish they stuck more too that instead of the direction they took it in the last 15 or so hours.

Ya that's a pretty fair score. That's the word I would use too "inconsistent" for Days Gone. It does feel all over the place and I'm only in the first act still. I think I said before the game feels like it has digital A.D.D. and can't sit still for a moment to follow a single story thread.

I think you have to spot a nest first in order for it to appear on the map. They are kinda hard to spot at times. Ya just gotta keep running around within the red area until Deacon comments about spotting one close by. It's a little tedious because you have to do it each time you move onto a new area and cannot use fast travel to a nearby safe haven until a nest is cleared which blocks the route.

They only appear all at once if that part of the map is fully uncovered by you taking out the marauder camp and accessing their bunker map. Otherwise they will not all be marked, only the ones you come across by clearing the fog on your own as you approach it.

Yeah, if you hit those camps it will fully reveal the map of each area, and mark the nero locations, nests, and the white collectable location stone markers. As well as gas stations. I found myself driving around until he Decon said something about the ambush camp. And then took it out. Then drove around in the fog looking for the next.

860 days gone for me to finish the story. You start at 746 or something like that. No idea on actual time played. Maybe 50 hours? And then got plat tonight (super easy, only needed three trophies after finishing the game) at 864 days gone. I only mention this because after the story ends, there is some great character wrap up moments. Kind of like Red Dead. Story lines with side characters come to a close and you have some very nice interactions with some of them. But only if you continue to play and clear out hordes. They seem to be gated behind that. The more I did the more these little story bits started rolling in. Which you have to clear the hordes to fully level up to get a trophy. And at this point taking hordes is fun because you have an insane arsenal at your disposal.

ya when i saw that you actually get to take these hordes out later i was like whoa because early in game where im at you dont have the firepower or supplies. theres a spot where like a couple hundred of them come out of these rail cars and im like holy crap...(monty python and holy grail style run away!!) the hordes can be pretty impressively done at times.

Ya that's where I'm at now still in the preliminary phases of Days Gone. Just scavenging and running from hordes. I imagine the game gets quite fun once you stop running from them and start having an arsenal to tactically dispose of them as you see fit.

I haven't ran into a horde yet, but how are people on the regular PS4 faring FPS wise when you encounter one? I already get dips below 30 fps pretty consistently when I'm approaching a camp or a large group of zombies, so I'm a little worried about how it's going to perform when I get to a horde.

also, this made me bust out laughing: https://www.reddit.com/r/DaysGone/comments/blh4u2/...

For anybody experiencing FPS drops/texture pop-ins in Days Gone, there are two things you can do that have helped me immensely. 1 - don't play the game out of rest mode, make sure you fully close it when you're done. 2- rebuild your ps4 database. Hold the power button on your PS4 and start in safe mode and select rebuild database.
I'm not in the 2nd half that is supposed to cause the largest frame drops yet, but this virtually eliminated them on the regular PS4 for me and I just got to Iron Mike's camp. Encountered my first horde with no drop in performance.

Another thing I found after I had finished the game, is upgrading your engine on the bike causes massive frame drops. If you downgrade it to the default one or the one above it, it seems to be fine. But using the higher end ones ones that make you go fast, cause insane fps drops any time you come near a camp (enter or exit, or just drive by) or when it has to spawn freakers. Its bonkers. It can't handle the player moving a certain speed if it has to render crap.

That's a decent amount for the allotted time. Still don't really understand why they chose to do a 10 min thing, but that's neither here nor there. Anything catch your eye? Was FF7 gameplay or was it just CG stuff?

Riverbond looks pretty mildly interesting. FF7 had some cut-scene stuff and some battle footage. Battle looks like a mix of turn based and FF15 active combat, maybe. It was quick flashes, hard to tell exactly what it was. But it looked way too teen angst-y bullcrap-y to me overall (this is probably not the correct way to describe it). Kind of hard to explain. Just gave me a bad vibe. I need to see much more to make a proper opinion though. They said more will be shown in June.

Aside from that, none of the other stuff interested me.

Trying to unlock all the suits in Spider-man PS4. I need to complete the Silver Lining DLC for the suit I'm working on now and am only missing ONE side mission. Wikis and guides tell me this is either "Snipe Hunt" or "The Network is Down". I think it's Snipe Hunt but I can't really remember which ones I've done so far. Anyhow, NEITHER mission is showing up for me. I've beat the main story, and all the DLC stories, but for some reason this one side mission isn't showing up for me and it's the only thing I need to complete for this DLC pack.

Anyone hear anything about this? Did I miss the side mission? It's really frustrating that I'm going to the spots I'm supposed to visit only to find absolutely nothing there.

I'm with talon on that one, wish they'd left the atb, which I always do on wait to make it more turn based..but if it's clean I'll come closer to accepting it. It would be easy to say I trust squeenix after dq11 but that's the enix / dq team..might as well be a different company. If it ends up like I'm playing Advent children this could be pretty amazing.

My biggest hope is it's no longer episodic but I'm sure they want to start monetizing as much as possible...RPGs in episdoes rather than "sequels" I can see as something they will want to do in the future...and it's gross.

Umm...maybe check out some exclusives you haven't played yet? There are tons of them so there's bound to be a couple you haven't checked out yet. If you have played them all then I can't think of a reason to turn it back on at the moment if you've got a PC and an Xbox One X. The Show and Days Gone are the only exclusives I can think of that have come out so far this year and there's nothing else until Judgement which comes out next month. Everything else I can think of is multi plat and the only reason you'd opt to play a multi plat on a PS4 over a high end PC or an Xbox One X is if it's a multiplayer game and your friends are playing on PS4 or if you care about trophies and just want to keep stuff on one ecosystem.

On Crash...it's coming to the Xbox and Switch as well, not just the PS4. Oddly, there's no PC release. At least not yet.

ya so far we've only seen midgar stuff in the remake, both now and before CC2 was taken off the project, stuff that is like that first hour or so of the game. if its gotten any further we havent seen it. in the original game you can get out of midgar in under 5 hours, though that section of the game is supposed to be expanded. i dont want it to be too linear like 13, just corridors.. if there is no world map i think we old fans will be very unhappy.. but 15 had one so i think we'll get something similar to that. you travel a sort of overworld and then you'll load into towns. i'll be fine with that.

i had seen before that the first "chapter" might even go all the way to the city of the ancients.. which... if you were going to go episodic... kind of would be a point to do that.... but im very sad its episodic, id much rather just wait for the full thing regardless of how long that is. just wait til 2022 and give us the whole thing for the 25th anniversary.

as heavy also said im never going to want rpgs to be this way... sequels are fine, and welcomed when they are good of course..

but i mean legend of heroes does this ? and does it well.. but thats not really the same thing.... maybe because its ff7 and we know its one game and was always one game before. it doesnt need redesigning or added content. make it look like this, orchestral soundtrack, translation fixes. done. thankfully the pc version can be modded to that these days with the high res background mods.

I bet it's much worse in Japan, but they just shut up and take it over there. It's kinda sad. That said, Square is one of the worst run developers in the world. It's a train wreck over there.

I keep forgetting the PS4 version of FF7 has rewind and cheat codes built within the fabric of the game. That may make me more inclined to try and speed thru it and I do have it on the PS4 too, got it on sale one day last year.

Just watched Jim Sterling's reaction to the FF7 remake trailer and he brought up a good point. We are dealing with latter day Square-Enix now, not 90's Squaresoft anymore. Latter day Square-Enix is a company who's management and employees are up in shambles compared to 90's day Squaresoft, which was more focused and controlled and dare I say competent? This is why games like The Quiet Man are allowed to be published, because the right hand of latter day Square-Enix has no freakin' clue what the left hand is doing.

Ya it looks like it's moved up. I think people get mad when PS exclusive game aren't hailed as the second coming, because if you look at recent games like Spiderman, GoW, and others like HZD, Uncharted etc, they're all critically acclaimed. It goes to show how high the bar has been set for PS exclusives.

I think 7 out of 10 is acceptable. Unfortunately it's at a 72 on Metacritic now, which puts it in the "yellow" category and I think people have been trained to feel that it needs to be "green" (75 or higher) to be worth their time.

I usually skip the "critic" reviews altogether and use the user scores to get a feel, was pretty sure almost everyone did this. That's sitting green at 80 so I wonder if others are concerned about the yellow critics.

Critics loved RDR and most players did too. I found it pretty bland and boring. Got half way through and realized it probably wouldn't get any better (I played Mass Effect to the end thinking it'd get better, it did not.) which is why I stopped.

I don't usually check user ratings on Metacritic because I don't put much stock in them. It's not too uncommon to see people that stick a 0 or a 10 score followed up by only 1 sentence to explain why. Most times if I check Metacritic it's just because I wanna see what the overall critic score for a game is and that's it. But when it comes to me looking for reviews to decide if I want to purchase a game I will check specific reviewers on YouTube before I check anywhere else. I want the person reviewing the game to be out of $60 if the game sucks, just like I would have been. So anyone who gets a game for free from the publisher I usually don't trust their opinion as much.

100%ed the full game and DLC for Spider-man PS4 - just wanted all the suits really. The only thing I didn't do was max out all the gadgets (meaning I didn't get 3 tokens during every challenge), and I didn't collect all the bugle newspapers. Otherwise I plowed through the last of the missions I had to do and started NG+.

Spider-man and RDR2 are within centimeters for my favorite game of 2018. I can't choose between either.

I can't say I even played a lot of games in 2018 that came out in 2018. God of War and Far Cry 5 were the only games that came out in 2018 that I played in 2018. So I'd say God of War.

I honestly did not like RDR2. I can't pinpoint exactly what the issue was. Maybe the wild west era just isn't my thing but I could not get into it. I tried to love it for about 15-16 hours and eventually just had to move on.

But in other news I also just got the platinum for Spider-Man. Which means the last 3 games I've completed (Spider-Man, God of War, and Persona 5) have been absolute pleasures to play through. Never felt burnt out on these at any point. The shear beauty of swinging around the city in Spider-Man was awesome. Reminded me of the feeling of when I played through the first InFamous years ago. Beautiful nostalgia.

I liked Zelda BOTW, but it definitely wasn't my GOTY when it was released. It was good, i just didn't think it was completely badass, like others. I enjoyed Horizon Zero Dawn much more.

It's slow. It devolves into its true form faster than GTA5 does. It's slow. It doesn't reward or support thinking outside the box, it's super hand-holdy. It's slow. It's boring. Probably because of the part where it's slow. But it's okay, not everyone likes good games. Some people like Horizon. Hah!

Mine was Spider-Man. Detroit: Become Human was my second favorite. There was also Octopath Traveler, Monster Hunter World, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. According to Metacritic, there were over 25 games with a 9/10 or better rating in 2018.

Regardless, great choice though. I loved that game. It's probably my third favorite of the year.

I loved Odyssey, especially since I got into it after they fixed some of the grindy stuff. But after 70hrs I did get bored. There's simply TOO much to the game for me. But it was still phenomenal. I played as the girl and felt like Xena warrior princess running around fudging up Greece. I might get back to it eventually and finish up some stuff after I get through some other things first. I think I just needed a break from it.

It's why I did play through RDR when I normally don't touch GTA games. Functionally, they are basically the same game but GTA's setting doesn't appeal to me.

45 hours into AC Odyssey and I don't think I've even completed 1/4 of the map. The game is freaking huge and my OCD is getting the best of me because I'm visiting every question mark on the map. Also zero grinding complaints. I am at level 42 and I'm tearing through everything Xena style! The game is really well balanced and I've even taken on a few mercenaries that were 3-4 levels higher and was able to take them down. It really sucks that it wasn't this balanced for the folks who picked it up launch. I'm going to move the story forward a little now. I've been doing a lot of the side quests (legit some of the best open world side content i've ever played) and a lot of naval stuff too. This will definitely be a 100 hour game for me. It's just too damn good!

Lots of info coming hot and heavy this far out from E3. So what is the point of E3 anymore if everything just gets leaked weeks before.

Anyway. Sony has confirmed PS5 players who use backwards compatible games (all games) will be able to play with people online playing on a PS4. So for example using Borderlands, you'd be able to co-op with them on PS5 if your co-op buddy was on PS4.

Dude, that's a day 1 purchase right there! Can't believe I'd never heard of it. The art style and music are on point. The art style reminds me a lot of Ni no Kuni and the red-headed girl even looks a little like Tani from NNK2. Thanks for posting this!

Ordered. I don't even know why. I already have the regular artbook and I didn't even watch the anime lol.

Looks great but I think Sekiro set the bar too high for Samurai Souls games.

I havent played Nioh 1 though. One of these days!

Probably an unpopular opinion but Nioh 1 over Sekiro for me. Easily. I enjoyed Sekiro and the actual gameplay is pretty much flawless, but I was ready for it to be over and I doubt I'll ever play it again. Beating your head against a wall against virtually every boss like I had to was just a drain after a while. You beat one and then you have to fight another one almost immediately after. There were just far too many of them for my liking. Still a very good game, though.
