Without looking back to see what has been announced, my most anticipated games are:
- Elder Scrolls Online (I'm not planning on getting many games next year so the subscription fee will take the place of games, that is if the game seems worth it after the free trial)
- The Division
- The Order
I'll have to see more on The Witcher 3, I wasn't a fan of the combat in the second one, but I like what they've been saying about the third one, so I'll keep an eye on it.
If they're getting them in so quickly then I'll wait until a week or two after Black Friday to avoid the crazy people trying to get a deal (though, by the time sale stuff runs out they just put whatever on the floor and people will just buy it even if it's not on sale, which I've seen happen a few times).
As a big fan of KZ I'd say that. The MP seems to be focused a lot on skill this time with all the weapons being available from the beginning, which kind of reminds me of Halo.
BF4 also looks good but if you've played BF3 this doesn't look to be all that different, but the added player count seems like it can be add a lot, especially with the size of the maps.
Though, if I had to get one game it would be AC4, there just looks to be so much to do in the game that it;ll keep me busy for a while while providing a lot of fun along the way.
I'll give it a go:
- The Last of Us is nothing more than a series of predicable and cliche cutscenes that relies too much on a "twist" ending that sites tried to pick apart as a way to ride out the hype train.
- RDR should have been a linear game because the open world, while technically impressive, is incredibly dull and without fun.
- Mass Effect 3 had better pacing and sense of urgency than 2, which was basically a giant fetch quest.
- Zombie games need to stop because they are not at all scary and are just kind of boring, as is the whole zombie fad.
- Halo 4 is a very good game (for some reason most people I know don't like it).
- The Vita is actually a very good handheld.
- Remote Play between Vita and PS4 is kind of useless since Sony says it only really works if both devices are on the same network, so why not just turn on the PS4?
- Gears of War is perhaps the most aggravating series ever, the characters alone made the game unplayable for me.
- Playstation Move isn't bad, it just needs more support, a few indie games use it really well.
This could be pretty cool if it is set up as more of a survival game than a crazy FPS, which is what COD is. Though, if COD had this as a 6-8 hour DLC then I could see them doing it (granted, that may be longer than their actual single player modes, no hate, but that's just kind of how their single player has gone).
What exactly is the issue with the game, this is my first hearing anything? I don't mean to sound rude, so apologizes if I do, it's just I ordered this as part of Target's but 2 get 1 free deal and will be getting a PS4 hopefully in December so I'm a bit curious.
Whatever the issue, hopefully EA can work it out, this is their big FPS franchise, so I don't see them just letting any big issues go unresolved.
I'd think stores will have them in decent stock in a couple of weeks (same for the One after it launches). Neither system has a big system seller game so I don't see them being completely out of stock for an extended period of time. At least I hope not, I'm looking to get one around the end of November or beginning of December so I can have it ready for Christmas.
I'd suggest the PS3. There are so many great games for it and most of them don't at all feel like old games. Also, a lot of games from this year are really cheap now and a lot of really great games came out this year. Stores will likely have sales on PS3 games for the holiday season, and with so many to chose from I'd say go with the PS3.
Don't let the age of a system be a deciding factor, I spent a good part of my summer playing 80s arcade games (Qix had me hooked until they reset the arcade machine). Sure, that's a bit more extreme in terms of age, but the point is the latest is not always the greatest.
Some games I'd suggest that are kid friendly are:
- Toy Story 3 (really fun)
- LittleBigPlanet 2
- LittleBigPlanet Karting
- Playstation All-Stars (kind of like Super Smash Brothers)
- Ratchet and Clank series (as well as the HD trilogy)
- Jak and Daxter HD trilogy
- Sly Cooper (HD trilogy and the new game)
I'd also suggest any of the sports games, I know when I had a N64 I was big into Madden and still am, and since they have multiple difficulty levels it should be customizable to what you want.
I put a lot of HD trilogies, which basically are three games on a disc. The games are from the PS2 era and are made to look better on a HD TV, but they're still fine even if played without a HD TV. I like them because they're all platformers (like Mario) and are simply fun to play and have an enjoyably lighthearted feel to them.
Sometimes I hate the internet. This just happens to be the current thread I've seen but all across the board the whole PS4/Xbox One trolling thing is just aggravating. I can't even read an article anymore without comments somehow being about the systems even if the article has nothing to do with either console.
As for the thread, try to be more original. If let a score decide a game for you then you clearly don't get how to read a review and see if what they say in the review goes along with what you look for in a game.
The B2get 1 free starts today. All week.
Thats what Im talking about.
Thanks for the link, I know where I'll be Friday, now to find a third game to go with AC4 and KZ.
I think it gets better once you get to finally fight human enemies that are in gangs. They actually offer somewhat realistic tactics while the clickers are so sporadic that it often results in painfully boring trial and error due to their poor AI. I also found it really aggravating how Ellie would either get in the way or make a ton of noise, not attract clickers, and then all you do is turn the wrong way and you're dead.
And yes, the story and most side characters aren't anything amazing, which is a shame since the beginning was really setting a nice tone.
Between those two I'd definitely get Killzone, but I'm also a fan of all the games so I've been looking forward to this since they announced it. Plus, KZ has always had a fun single player and multi-player mode while BF3 had an awful single player but good multi-player, so for value at least KZ has both game modes worth playing.
