Playstation 4 - News and Info

PS4 showed up at the house yesterday b/c their grandparents don't think my kids are spoiled enough. (The 9 year old turns 10 tomorrow).

Appreciate the past posts concerning the age old question of "what games to get?"

guess i need to read this thread now....get back to y'all in a few weeks :lol:
 
All the good games are in the list of suggestions made for OverclockN a few pages back.
 
Started playing God of War on PS4 Pro. Crap, this is awesome. :up:

By the way, I have a 1080p TV and I seem to prefer the resolution mode over the performance mode (even with my 1080p TV). 60 fps kinda makes this game feel a little "cheap." The game feels more cinematic at 30 fps and suits the game's style/atmosphere more. Plus, I get a supersampling (checkerboard 4K downsampled to 1080p).
 
I'm still trucking along in God of War but....eh. It's "OK". There's just enough reward style gameplay and story to keep at it, but if not for that I'd be flat out bored. Not sure what all the fuss has been about, I don't get it. :lol:

I'm with you on that one. The actual gameplay really made me appreciate botw.
 
Thinking about picking up the latest Tomb Raider and both of the recent AssCreed games for my PS4 Pro. Been waiting to play them on PC, but eh...

How do these games look on the PS4 Pro compared to the PC?

Roughly the same at lower frame rate. So if you enjoy the smoothness of 60fps(if you have the hardware) than do PC. If not PS4 will get you by just fine.

I'm lost on the idea as to why you'd get a game on PS4 if its superior on PC and you have a great running PC.

As PC gamers, to us consoles are just for exclusives that are not on PC. Unless they can someday figure out how to make 30fps a thing of the past.
 
Preferred resolution and framerate issues. Sometimes it's just easier/better to run the games on a console if it doesn't look much different.
 
There's some nice deals on games in the PlayStation store right now. Essentials sale I think they call it. I picked up Titanfall 2($10 for ultimate edition) and beat it over the weekend and I'm just getting into the multiplayer. It was Easy to beat the campaign mode(on normal) but it was still fun. Multiplayers seems like it's a blast!

Far as the PC versus console debate, I just personally like the whole experience on the PlayStation 4. I like the user interface, the store system, psn app, and I like the trophy system and I'm sure if I had more friends that would be cool too lol.
 
The PS4 is a great experience overall, but I've always thought the system user interface/dashboard is just awful. It's a joke, IMO. :lol:
 
My PC was momentarily unavailable for gaming (switching hard drives), so I booted up the Nathan Drake Collection. I started playing Uncharted: Drake's Fortune on Saturday, finished it just now - six hours playtime. :lol: (Thank you Easy difficulty mode?)

I never played the Uncharted games before, and I was pleasantly surprised by how easily UDF drew me in. It's quaint by today's standards, but a smooth experience nonetheless with charm (and expert remastering) bridging the twelve year gap since its original release in 2007. I even paused playing Prey (2017) for this, which is a rarity: I don't usually interrupt single player games for other single player games.

I remember 2007 as a year for Halo 3, Portal, Grand Theft Auto 4, Modern Warfare and Assassin's Creed. Can't help but think Uncharted wasn't the prettiest game among its peers, but I always thought it was lauded for its graphics. Am I remembering wrong?

Uncharted was amazing for its time. You should play 2 and 3 as well and those games will give today’s game a run for their money.

I have the Drake Collection, and I've got Uncharted 4. I intend on playing through them all! But first, back to Prey, which is also an amazing game.

I played through the Uncharted series a couple years ago, and found the same. Even though its not the best in any single area (graphics, gameplay, story, etc.), it drew me in much stronger than most any other series. I never wanted to put it down, and played through all 4 games in quick succession.

I guess Halo is another good example for me. I know the story is simple and dumb and the cutscenes are lame, but somehow it just works for me, and draws me in. But at least with Halo I can identify that the gameplay is absolutely the best (maybe not the newer installments).

I did the same thing recently with the Uncharted series. I played all 5, never wanting to put it down.

Halo has a fantastic story, I thought. It was the best part of the series and one of the only reasons I ever played. The gameplay was just awful.
 
All this Uncharted talk making me want to get back to the series. But every time I try to pick it back up again I get bored with it for some reason.

They are great action/adventure games for sure, but I think they are just too bland for me or something. I literally get sleepy playing them.
