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 sit about 12' back of a 160" screen, so I would still recommend a 70" if you're sitting 6' back to be honest, but I am all about immersion.

In my "retro room" where my retro stuff, plus my PS3 and Wii U and PSVR, I have a 55" TV that sits about 6 to 7 feet in front of me and I am already looking for a bigger TV.

having said all that. I had a great experience playing Ni no Kuni II on my 65" OLED because I sat up close at the end of my bed. Face only about 4 feet from the screen. How close you sit really matters. If you are at a desk or sit close to your stand a 55" would be fine too.

I totally agree with you about size. I could have bought a 55" OLED or so instead of my 75" Sony 850e...but my old TV was 55" and there was no way I wasn't going bigger.

Even now, I kinda wish I waited a bit and grabbed an 85".

Once you want above 75" you really need to look into projectors. You start spending insane amounts of money for 5" - 10" that just going Projector where you can have so much more screen size for your money.

Is Sega really going to potentially delay Judgment in the west because of some fool's personal addiction back east? Uh, not sure if Japan is aware, but if you're a celebrity in the west here and not doing nose candy, then you're not doing it right.

For $1,500 you can get a really nice DLP .47" DMD unit coming up that is 4K with HDR tone mapping, and really good specs I could get into detail about.

At that price it's a steal of a value. 50 to 60ms lag tho so if you're getting paid for gaming might not be for you..

i do hope though that this doesnt affect the western release i really want to play this.


SO in monster sized rumors today.. Sony stock and Take Two stock( the parent company to Rockstar and 2k games) are both up a few points amid rumors Sony is in board level discussions about buying take two.. imagine PS5 coming out like, hey yall, we got exclusive Borderlands 3, GTA6 and another red dead game in 2032, and some 2k stuff. word is microsoft is buying up studios to start really pumping the games out so sony is considering responding by buying up a big one that holds several big properties and take two certainly is that. now is it unlikely to be a thing, ya definitely. but thats the rumor and stocks are moving because of it, but that does happen.

if its true thats pretty huge. alot of those single genre and just one or two game people that would make their choice for them. we've been mentioning those people alot but there are people out there who buy consoles for one or two games a year and there are a lot of those people who are gta or 2k people. it would be massive if its true and if they do it. add gta and red dead, borderlands, 2k basketball to sony's already pretty sizeable first party lineup and youre capturing a whole other part of the demographic. xcom, civilization and other stuff too. buried down in 2k is one of my favorite series ever, sid meier's pirates, not sure if this would be good bad or indifferent for that, probably wouldnt matter, 2k hasnt seemed real interested in having the Sid team do anything but Civ.

They could, but that would mean emptying their entire cash reserves to do so. Like every penny. Definitely not worth it, imo and no way the board would sanction such a move.

I laughed when I saw this rumor earlier. It's just silly. Sony would be better served putting a ring on Insomniac and maybe acquiring a small but talented team like Bluepoint and turning them into the next first-party powerhouse. That would do for Western acquisitions. And in the East, they could acquire someone like Level-5, higher some decent writers for them, and give us some first-party JRPGs.

Yeah that's what I thought. If it were Microsoft maybe they could afford it with ease but I remember not too long ago Sony hurting for funds and just when they're finally climbing out and making profits and higher revenue outputs again they just seek to dump it all on a company and put themselves into hock, for what, exclusivity? Doesn't make sense to me either.

And funny you should mention Level-5. I'm actually in the middle of making my weekly episode for my YT channel and it focuses on the lost franchises of the past and Dark Cloud is one of them. Would love to see Sony rekindle that love affair. Such an underrated game series. One of the many I'm touching on each week.

Left Alive should have been Left 4 Dead.


But there's already a game series called Left 4 Dead, so it should have just not existed. I can't remember a game averaging so low 34.38%. The PC is at 39%.

sony has made a lot of money the last couple of years though? i dont really see it happening though either, but it is interesting, take two, EA and activision are all probably just too big for any of the big three to see value in a purchase. sony buying level-5 would be sick, id love to see them doing more really big console rpgs and get away from what at least for me is the less interesting things they've been doing on handhelds in recent years.

The worst part is Square Enix knew it was bad because the reviews came out a week after it hit stores. So they got impulse buyers like yous money.

Yeah, and Level-5 is kinda struggling at the moment. They could definitely benefit from Sony's resources and fill that lack of first-party JRPGs void in the process. Those are the kind of acquisitions I would like to see. I'd hate for them to be reactionary just because of what the competition is doing.

So far I've run into 3 women that I slept with. 2 other women seem like they'll sleep with my character eventually. I've not yet ran into one man who was even remotely interested, lol. I am not sure if the game has any for me. I certainly didn't agree to being a lesbian but whatever?

I looked, not sure if you want spoilers or not, so I wont say anything specific. but there a few of both, but some need quests done first it seems and some don't come til later in game, and there is one either/or scenario where you can only get one lover or the other, one being male and one female, so depending on where you are you may have locked out one. there aren't any "romance options" like in a mass effect where you "end up" with that person, this is all just ancient greek fooling around nsa apparently.

There are a ton of men and women. My Casandra got around. I remember 3 dudes and I think 7 or 8 chicks. And in the DLC there is a romance that is forced on you regardless of any choices you made during the game.

Seriously though I'm having a hard time putting this game down. Doesn't feel grindy at all because there's so much to do. I guess also because they fixed the XP and other stuff since some people played it. I think I'll give Origins another try after this. I was having a hard time with figuring out the leveling up menu (and reading it for that matter) but if it's the same I got the hang of it I think and I'd love to explore Egypt too. Even the ship battles are fun, which I absolutely hated them in the previous games.

its probably worth 9 as a series fan and for following things through the timeline, but its the weakest in the series to be sure, syndicate takes what it wanted to do and does it right. Arno is interesting at times, he cant deal with the strict rules of the assassin council and does things his own way at times, and it kind of expands on the not all Templars are "evil" in the sense we have been shown them before like in rogue with Elise who isn't an "evil" person.

the setting is great, and the buildings are pretty. if only they had taken their time and it was as good as syndicate it could have been a contender.

$9 where?

When I first played it, it did not grab me. I had no idea what was going on most of the time, I think they throw you into a fight almost immediately at the start without much explanation from what I remember. I hated the menus they seemed rather complicated to me and I didn't know the system at all, got frustrated and never picked it up again. But the setting looked amazing. I do want to get back to it now that I'm more experienced with the system.

the main thing about unity is don't let it throw you off playing syndicate. they rushed unity bad and then syndicate was good. unity does have some co-op missions but they don't load because no one is queuing up to play unity these days.

rogue is also really good, a lot of people missed that one, and unity begins as rogue ends, which was pretty cool.

About 35-40hrs into AC Odyssey. Starting to get a bit grindy. I am level 31 and I've reached a point where all missions are 34+ and when I've tried to go on anyway, people pretty much instakill me. I am having a hard time finding missions to level up quickly. Bounties only do so much and it's getting a bit repetitive. So with this many hours in I'm getting a bit annoyed and wishing we could finish things up. I'll push through though, it's a fantastic game and I want to see the end.

There it is! That ol' unnecessary not fun grindy feeling! If you really want to continue slogging it, look for the job board quests that are contracts that run in the background. I.E. Kill 10 Spartan Commanders, Complete 2 Conquest Battles for Athens/Sparta, Kill 20 Athenian Archers, etc...those quests will rack you up some serious XP. I'm talking like 30-60k per contract and will take about 2 quests to boost you up a level from where you're at now.

I saw a couple things suggesting that the division 2 is not performing well at retail, maybe people are finally voting with their dollars (but not likely), and the looter shooter genre getting free to play games that aren't super garbage, they are to me, but not to fans I guess, isn't helping games like the division and anthem. battlefield 5 despite selling over 7 million is being called a disappointment by EA, maybe these will be wake up calls for the EA's and Ubi's of the world, but probably not

Thanks for the tip. I will do those instead of running around aimlessly looking for other missions. I sort of feel like a betrayer, killing people on both sides, lol.

One can only hope that something gives sooner rather than later to this whole live service/games as a service model bandwagon. I refuse to buy any live service type of game moving forward. My friend asked me to get The Division 2 with him and I refused. Why? To play it for a week, then get bored? $60 down the drain right there. Nope.

Those type of games never even hit my radar. If all games were eventually like Anthem and Division I'd stop buying new games/consoles and just play older ones.

Moot point, because even the most popular of these kinds of games is just a very small percentage of gamers. What you are saying is like someone who only plays Call of Duty saying, if all games become like MMORPGs I'll never play another game again.

The retail numbers for The Division 2 are from the UK where nothing sells well at retail. News just broke that Anthem was the best selling game in February here in the US and BioWare's second best launch ever. I expect the same for The Division 2. I have zero interest in those kinds of games, but people like them. Critical reception doesn't seem to matter for these kinds of games.

disapointing, but we'll always be at war with that sect of the demographic though i suppose. my boss is a great example. great guy, but hes the buys the annual COD, maybe one other blockbuster like rdr2 then plays it for 2 hours ever, and then drools over games like the division and strange brigade, he seriously walked around with a boner for strange brigade for like 2 weeks.

I've never even heard of Strange Brigade until now.

They should have marketed that game better so I could ignore it anyway.

yessss indeed... while its going to be odd not being Kiryu and having Majima around, those guys are pretty old at the end of Y6 so its probably time. the trailer for the new game where Ichiban meets Kiryu and realizes who he is is pretty awesome. also interesting how they reversed Kiryu's suit colors for Ichiban.

now if we can just get confirmation the western release of judgment is still on track, they are making me nervous, and the cast of this new game can stay off the blow we will be in business.
