Lots of single player games have had some sort of online integration with the campaign (eg SSX, Burnout, AssassinsCreed4, MassEffect3, inFamous2, Tomb Raider, Bloodborne, MGSV), but they don't DRM your save files to a server, breaking your game, resetting your progress or take away gameplay elements (weapons,skins) without that tether!! This is a throwback to Elder Scrolls Oblivion's dlc problems.
The online Leaderboards and Contract menus in...
The patch was a disaster, they're already working on patching the patch.
New obtrusive/awkward hud icons you can't toggle off. Pre-order bonus content all vanished! Longer load times. Some weapon/item pictures are not loading. Servers still unstable and crash (DRM boots you to the main menu when they crash because SP saves still require a MP connection). Content like Paris escalation is still awol. Bad day for IO
Re-installing a disc on PS4 is faster than re-downloading the whole game off PSN, by my experience.
For one, disc doesn't chug bandwidth. Speed isn't affected by whatever's up with my ISP or wi-fi.
Two, I can do it on any number of systems without activating or deactivating primary systems back and forth.
Third, i can sell discs, get deals by playing store A against flyer B or going to auction. Digital is a monopoly and doesn'...
Retail tends to have sales that last longer and start sooner.
Stores like walmart, target, bestbuy, amazon, eb games, toysRus are all in competition for your $$$. PSN is a digital monopoly as is XBL, for their respective consoles. Probably why digital's generally more expensive despite less packaging.
eg. Until Dawn is $49.99 on PSN Canada atm. $39.99 at bestbuy. The Order is $19.99 on psn, $9.97 at bestbuy. And that's just one store. Guarantee Unchart...
Physical disc every opportunity.
Digital sales i find are RARELY cheaper or as regular as the pricedrop AAA titles get at retail in roughly 2- 3 months. PSN doesn't price match either. I get far more reward zone discounts than any digital incentives.
Throw in the occasional trade or re-sale, no system/account DRM, not having to wait for the whole game to install plus actually OWNING what you've bought and not being at the mercy of someone's serve...
This is nuts! Their reviews are more in line with my tastes than any of the other big name sites (I've no interest in anyone's opinions at ign, polygon, edge, eurogamer, gamespot). Not good. They're where I discovered AVGN etc.
Had a feeling something was going on when their various apps ceased working, Lol but it's still nuts! They *just* posted a Firewatch video review for PS4, which metacritic have erroneously listed in the PC section but not the PS4 one....
Say whaaaattt?! No way!!! Can't be true. I Gotta read this
As do I.
Downloading right now after searching it out from my dashboard! 7GB. Awesome! thx for the tip! Best headline on N4G I've seen in a while, heh.
Nice. I still have this for my GBA! If only I knew what happened to said GBA.
Careful what you wish for! Now I have to buy mine COD every year and their respective map packs.
She started off nice. Used to play lotsa Burnout, SSX, LBP, GTA, SlyCooper, Battlefield, Tomb Raider, Home. Good variety. Now it's just killstreaks scorestreaks and deathstreaks. It sends me on drinkstreaks lol
As to the article, I tried introducing her to thatgamecompany's catalog more than once. She's watched me play them and replay them too. Nope. S...
Pretty sure that counts 360 copies too. Nothing to suggest it doesn't. Titanfall, Forza Horizon2, LBP3 were similar cross gen exclusives.
Nowhere in the MS press release does it say X1 sales only. It simply states the exclusives in their 2015 holiday lineup have passed a million. Tomb Raider launched on XB1 AND 360. There's an 80million + install base in there.
It's back up now on ps3. I'm logged on as are others on my friend list. PS4 and the PS app however, still time out...
lol, I see what you did there! Ahh Kos, or some say Kosm
Congrats to BB though, got my vote. A round of brain fluid for everyone! plip plop...
The Talos Principle has the same 88% avg Ori does. Is that not a game? Throw on Rocket League at 85% and the indy demographic is covered.
2 infamous games? First Light was technically an expansion to Second Son. Stand alone DLC like TLOU:Left Behind or inFamous:Festival of blood. If you're counting expansions, then count Bloodborne's Old Hunters at 87% and FFXIV Heavensward at 86%.
Tearaway Unfolded is rated the same 81% as Sunset...
Kinda like Gears of War Ultimate, Halo MCC, and last gen re-releases like State of Decay
Considering the best new game of THIS holiday season (aka late Nov-Dec) was Yakuza 5, a *last gen* localised PS3 exclusive, I think the article might be missing a bigger picture here. My PS3 won the holidays.
Ni No Kuni is in its prime. Final Fantasy is past its prime. I'll read about FF15, but I'm buying NNK2.
I beg to differ. There's just as many Witcher fanboys that can't seem to stop erecting shrines and burning effigies to Wild Hunt, calling all other games mediocre in comparison. That's generally the clique I find the most pretentious and abrasive. There are several here already.
"Us people" also don't go on about difficulty or hardcore anything. Too busy helping eachother in the community with PVE co-op and PVP.
I only started (and p...
