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!

Yeah, you are absolutely right with your last comment. Its really just one of those things where the game didn't land with me at this particular time. I've developed a very specific, and picky taste in games. Which is always changing. As it is for everyone. And this one just came out at the wrong time for me personally to like it. And I might try it again in a couple years and have a completely different reaction to it. Its happened before. But for right now, it checked off to many negative boxes and not enough positive.

its a new game with its own save files that would be nice though, but then would it do with the new characters and stuff so i can see why they had to do it this way i guess

Just saw that Telling Lies is coming to console pretty soon. Excellent. Not sure of date, but trophies and achievements have started to hit tracking sites. Hoping its tomorrow. But probably wont be for a week or two.

From the guy that made Her Story. Which also needs to come to console since this is. I haven't played this one yet because it was rumored to be coming to console since last year. But Her Story is an amazing game. Really looking forward to this. But I've read its not as good as Her Story.

Never heard of this, but I've heard a lot of great things about Her Story so I'll definitely check it out.

I finally got a PS4! Started up Spider-Man tonight. I'm enjoying it, but I feel like I really suck at it. I started on "Amazing" difficulty but switched to the one below that about halfway through the first mission. I still found it kind of hard, but was able to finish the first mission. There are so many moves/attacks, it's hard to keep up with. Did anybody else struggle early on like I am?

Not really. But Im used to the Arkham style of battles. My tip would be to not button smash that attack button, that will get you killed. Vaulting over enemies is always a good way to avoid getting hit. Later on youll start unlocking costumes, you can choose the one that better fits your playstyle.

spider bro is your friend when you get that power, and air launching and air combos are great for building gauge so you can start thinning out the amount of enemies. different enemies need diff techniques sometmes.

1-on-1 combat was easy, but I kept being in situations where I was surrounded by multiple guys all shooting at me. The only way I found to not take much damage was to keep bouncing around quickly from enemy to enemy, getting in a few quick hits, then moving on, and shooting web here and there to slow some of them down.

Its not fake. They posted videos, screenshots etc. I'm kinda pissed someone ruined the game for me. I'm still playing it.

Well, P5R's still P5, but 35 hours in I have some plusses and minuses.

Made it way too easy all around. I can appreciate the additional stat gain options since the original game was so stingy that you couldn't max it first run unless you already had a plan strategized for it, but basically you need to run the game at Hard to even be remotely simulating in battles anymore. They added new "Showtime" attacks that are admittedly a fun addition, but that basically gives a random chance of just ending a fight long before it would otherwise end. On normal you basically can just hit "start" to get Rush Mode going and go take a piss, auto-heal after and keep going, just make sure your heals have Camera Straps equipped so they can regain SP at a disgusting rate on each of their turns.

It's also WAY too easy to make money, I blew a hundred grand in the Weapons shop before Futaba's temple and I'm still looking at having much, much more than half a million yen by the time I walk out of that place, I can't spend all this fudging money they keep giving me. The only cognitive dissonance I've had in Mementos basically filled an entire level with Queen's Necklaces so every fight was giving me 15K Yen for rewards. At some point it just feels ridiculous. Not to mention one of the new shops lets you sell dirty clothing at list price AND get points for further rewards. Kawakami's never going to pay back her bills at this rate, you don't need coffee anymore and actually washing clothes is the WORST possible choice now.

Most of the palaces have substantial structural changes (bordering on feeling "new"), and most of the bosses feel completely different, but again, if you're on Normal you really don't feel any pressure.

I obviously haven't hit the "new semester" yet but overall, the most significant changes to the game feel like the vastly improved load times and 4K video output support, which if I'm being frank should have been patches to Persona 5, not bundled in another $60 MSRP release of the game. I'll still play through it but this would have been much easier to swallow if it'd hit platforms it wasn't already out on, like Xbox, Switch or PC.

...But it's still Persona 5, so. Any game that doesn't actively make me wish I was playing another game during slow points is extremely good and rare for me. Considering I've already played through the base game, I'm surprised P5R's still keeping my interest this well. Already had to turn down the Doc's advances (she was best girl last playthrough, my sights are set elsewhere this time around), and since so far all the enhanced Will Seed accessories have been flops (nothing competes against Camera Strap seriously, other than ATK boosting accessories for melee-heavy thieves) I'm probably gonna stop worrying about picking them all up and just start blowing through the palaces. I want to say at this rate of play I might be able to keep my 73 hour playtime on finish, since I feel like I'm well over halfway through, but we'll see.

Edit: ah fudge. The Futaba Palace Will Seed accessory is actually pretty fudging good. Guess I'll start that "skip 'em" plan after that.

That's disappointing someone had to ruin it for everyone. If I got spoiled I would still play it but will be avoiding anything that could be a spoiler.

From the article fluff piece I just read on True Trophies:

The leaks are reportedly from a disgruntled ex-naughty dog employee who left the company after a pay-dispute, although this has not been confirmed. We have reached out to Sony for comment on this.

Reddit can be just fine if you stay to some of the more well-known and less tainted subreddits. But there are areas of Reddit that are equally as much of a cesspool as Twitter or 4chan.
Never forget when "Reddit detectives" took it upon themselves to find out who was behind the Boston marathon bombing incident and they completely botched it by pinning it on an innocent 17 year old kid.

@Archer @Tad

Just finished Telling Lies. It's an okay game. The acting is definitely top-notch, though and the story takes a couple of interesting turns. You have all these disjointed video clips and you piece the game's story together by searching keywords or phrases to bring up certain clips. It's a pretty cool mechanic and it's really easy to go down a rabbit hole so I had to keep a pen and pad with me to keep track of things. I can't even say whether or not I enjoyed the game because it felt like a chore at times, but what I can say is that the game is really oddly designed...

The majority of clips feature a conversation between two people so you need to watch two clips, one from each perspective, to get the full picture. Most clips don't really make much sense since you can only hear one side of the conversation and to make matters worse, the clips aren't paired so it's not like you can just watch the other clip once you're done with the first. You have to try to parse through the first clip to figure out what the other person is saying so you know what to search for to bring the second clip up. With me so far? Good! Now don't make the mistake of searching for a word that's too common because search results are limited to 5. So even if the game tells you there are 10 results for the word "love", you'll only see the first 5 results. I hope I haven't lost you yet because here's where things really get wonky. So you figure out the perfect word or phrase, you type it into the search bar and it pulls up a clip. It matches the length of the first clip you watched so you know they are a pair. We're in business! You hit play and the clip starts right where that word/phrase is uttered in the conversation. But here's the problem...the word is uttered right in the middle of an 8 min clip so you have to rewind to the beginning. No problem, right? Wrong! These devs, in their infinite wisdom, chose not to include in a fast rewind function. There also isn't a way to just start a clip from the beginning. You have to use the super slo-mo rewind function like it's a VHS or something and it takes forever to rewind to the beginning of clips. The rewind speeds are so slow that you can easily read the subtitles in reverse and get all the info you need from the scene. And you find yourself in the middle or even at the very end of a clip a lot. And there are a lot of long clips so this gets old fast. So just rinse and repeat this process for 4-5 hours and that's your game.

I also want to mention that the way the game ends is really annoying and anticlimactic. I guess I'd pieced enough of the story together for the game to trigger the end-game cinematic even though there were plenty of gaps I hadn't filled. So while the story is definitely intriguing, it just ends up feeling kinda disjointed and incomplete.

I checked out some reviews and I'm convinced that most of the reviewers were drunk when they played this. So many design oversights that some reviewers don't even bother mentioning. It's baffling. I've heard Her Story is much better (same developer) so I'll definitely check that one out if it ever comes to consoles.

I didn't know it came out yesterday. And this sounds terrible. Her Story was way better than what you are describing. Not sure how they went backwards with this one. This sounds like work and not something fun to do, lol.

Believe it or not, even Apple is starting to go away from proprietary, their new stuff has USB-C I think.

Right on, I'll grab it if I see a good sale, I'd be in for 5ish. Usually only see it down around 10-12 so far.

Their iPads; their phones are, of course, sticking with lightning cables, because of course they are.

I'd expect if the European laws take effect saying you need to use standard connectivity ports, Apple will pull another "Brave" move like they did with the headphone jack and just remove wired charging altogether and go wireless only. Because using USB-C is that antithetical to their MO. They only begrudgingly added C ports to the Gen3 Pro tablets, or there was some cost differential with the space they had to work with (versus a smaller phone) where it was financially beneficial for them to do so. On that particular footprint.

Making a law forcing a company to use a specific port or cord is the dumbest crap I think I've seen, Who the ruck cares let them use whatever type of cable they want, it's their product...

To a certain extent I agree

With things like phones (everyone's got them and everyone uses them), the selfish part of me says "No, fudge that, just use the same crap everyone fudging else does, because Lightning cables are dogcrap and overpriced" but the tiny libertarian on my shoulder says "Hands off!"

There are laws in place for universal Cords. Anyone remember those charging cables that had 20 different ports cause everyone had a different style charging port? Yeah who wants that to come back?

Looks like the next Assassin's Creed game is Norse themed. It's called Assassin's Creed Valhalla and it launches this holiday for current and next-gen systems. Cool cinematic trailer in the link below, but I don't think I can get excited until I see some actual gameplay.

i have i think at least 4 assassin's creed games but i only ever tried the first...i tried but it didnt grab me. And there's so many it seems overwhelming
So far I'm living my life under the assumption i'll just never be into it, but I dunno
Should i reforce myself to beat the first one (especially tough since my ps3 is collecting dust) or what

Yeah, I definitely don't think there should be laws, but it's annoying AF that they insist on sticking with the lightning cable. Every other company made the switch to micro-USB, and are now transitioning to USB-C. It's just so much easier when you can use the same cables for everything. But Apple doesn't think like that.They think their products are the only ones that matter, so as long as you have lightning cables, you should be fine!

Yeah, the first game is rough. I'd skip it. It's terrible even by 2007 standards. It's a glorified tech demo, really. You could pick up the Ezio Collection for the PS4. It's a remaster of the second, third, and fourth games in the series. That's a great starting point for folks new to the series. The series also had a soft reboot of sorts with AC Origins so you could always start there. That's another great entry point for folks new to the series who don't want to play through the entire back catalog of AC games.

Ideally, they should have the freedom to do what they want, but we the people should speak with our wallets and convince them to not be pieces of crap when it comes to things like that...a delicate, balanced ecosystem

I definitely haven't done my part though

Cool didn't know about the soft reboot...so going to 2 (or 2 remastered) is fine story wise? How connected are they anyway

There must be like, what, 50 AC games by now, I guess it's safe to assume a lot of people will be jumping in at random points so probably not a big deal to miss some
