If you only judge a game on how good the graphics are you'll get exactly what you've asked for. Style over substance and generally very shallow games plus you'll miss out on some great titles.
I don't understand why someone has to mention this every time anyone criticizes any game's graphics. Yes, everybody knows that gameplay comes first. That doesn't mean we can't talk about graphics, and compare them. If nobody cared about graphics, they wouldn't be advancing every year. Just because someone expressed disappointment in the graphics of game, that doesn't mean it's the only thing they care about. It's just an observation. But every single time there's a criticism regarding graphics, someone has to chime in and say "but gameplay is more important!". Of course it is. But this particular thread is about graphics. Is that against the rules or something?
Not at all. But if everyone agreed then it wouldn't be much of a discussion now would it?
In future if you let me know what I can write about in the forum that would be a great help thanks. Just put up a list for me.
I'm playing through Beyond for the first time right now and really enjoying it. Yes the story is rather contrived and I read that it took 2 years to write when it could have written it in a week TBH. But if you take it for what it is; an emotionally driven interactive drama with many interesting gameplay elements thrown in, then you'll have a blast with it. It's all about the narrative and the performances of the lead actors. If you can't appreciate it for what it is then you're missing out on a great experience.
There's definitely a place in gaming for titles like this. If you have played the same generic shooters with the same boring carbon copied characters over and over again then it's such a welcome breath of fresh air to play a 8+ hour interactive drama that pulls at the heartstrings a little. It's the third Cage title I've played and have loved every one. Each one has been quite unique which is something that should be praised in this industry not lambasted.
I'm a huge fan of TLOU and think the art style and the overall look and feel of the game are just fantastic. It does however suffer from a few muddy textures, pop-in and jaggies. For such a huge project I'm not massively surprised.
Thing to always remember is YOU DON'T PLAY THE GRAPHICS, YOU PLAY THE GAME.
It's in my top five games of all time along with Deadly Premonition (looks like a ps2 game), Deus Ex: HR (despite being fantastically stylised the graphics looks pretty bad) and Bioshock Infinite (again not the best looking game ever but amazing art style.)
If you only judge a game on how good the graphics are you'll get exactly what you've asked for... Style over substance and generally very shallow games plus you'll miss out on some great titles.
You guys are always talking about how the xbox one is 720p. Well madden and Lego marvel are 1080p not up scaled but true 1080p. In case your not smart enough to figure this out yet the reason some xbox one games are 720p is because Microsoft gave out the wrong dev kits. You also say the ps4 is sold out everywhere and the xbox one is just siting on store shelves. well I cant find one any where.
If you subscribe for say 3 months, don't enjoy your stay and don't renew your subscription then say 2 months later a game you want comes up and you resubscribe will you lose the games you had during your first time or would you lose them?
Once a game from PS+ has been activated (download initiated) you can play it as long as you still have a PS+ subscription. They will remain in your downloads list forever and you can download them whenever you want (but obviously can only play them when subbed).
So in answer to your question: yes you can let your subscription run out then re-subscribe down the line and still play those games *as long as you started a download of the game when you were subscribed.
Every month, once new games are added, I set every game away downloading |(even ones I'm not really interested in) then cancel the downloads so they will remain in my list to grab whenever I feel like getting them.
PS + really is a superb and unrivalled service
Looks like you have a good idea of what games you want and your suggested list is pretty much spot on.
- Deus Ex: HR (Director's cut)
- Infamous 1 & 2
- Demon's Souls
- Beyond 2 souls (playing through at the minute and enjoying it very much)
Then play TLOU again, and again, and again as it's spectacular.
Croc: Legend of the Gobbos?
...seriously though isn't there a thread for forgotten games? There's a few guys on there that could help you out as they really know their stuff... here
Could backfire massively for MS considering most indie developers we're developing for PS4 primarily before MS reversed it's policies. Basically they're acting like they're the big boy in the playground and If you want to play here you play by their rules. Would,'t be surprised if a few developers just bypass MS altogether.
Doubtful. Titanfall has a few things going against it.
1. A $60 multiplayer only game has never sold well.
2. Spring Release
3. Next gen consoles don't yet have a large enough install base to see any kind of significant sales.
They are making a huge mistake releasing in March and by the time it could make good sales numbers, it will be an old title, overshadowed by Destiny, a Treyarch COD and whatever holiday AAA's Microsoft has in the works for 2014.
I agree that Destiny looks leaps and bounds better than Titanfall. I just think the hype train will have enough steam to take it over the line. Remember that Respawn haven't had to work on a time consuming/expensive single player campaign so production costs will be much lower than your average shooter.
I voted Other.
I just think with original Wii being a massive success in the casual market it has forever tarred them with the casual brush. The large scale hardcore gamers market just tend to bypass the Wii U as a gimmick or kids device.
I like the look of the system and will probably get one when they have an inevitable massive price drop but I just don't see it as a "serious" gaming system. More a bit of fun.
@withe1982: That would be great but my hope for the handheld market is pretty well gone.
The PSV needs third party support as well and frankly it's just not there.
I'm just grasping onto any straws I can as I don't get my Vita 'til Xmas (girlfriend has hidden it) so hoping it's not just going to lose all support. Hopefully now I've got one 3rd party developers will see it's worth developing (crosses fingers).
To be honest though as with many others I only bought one to remote play when I get my PS4 next year.
I gave it to The Walking Dead, but in all fairness, that's the only game from this year I've played on the handheld.
Sadly, unless they start making games for the system that I actually want to play (more Uncharted, Infamous, or other good third person action adventure games), then my PSV will be nothing more than a movie player on trips and a really good accessory for my PS4.
Sony is doing everything right with the PS4, but they are doing everything wrong with the PSV. Weird.
I can't wait to pick up Tearaway when I get thought the mountain of games I have to try for the Vita.
Hopefully the massive success that the PS4 is enjoying at the minute will help the Vita as I know many UK retailers are seeing a massive upsurge in sales due to the remote play features. that can only help future development on the platform.
Hopefully a few games are in the pipe line, with Sucker Punch rumoured to be making a vita game. http://www.joystiq.com/2013/09/06/rumor-infamous-coming-to-vita/
To be honest if Titan Fall and Quantum Break are the big hitters that Lems are putting all their stock into then it's a very risky gamble. Both have the potential to be complete and utter flops.
If Titan Fall's formula works and multiplayer turns out to be amazing and fun then, as long as they can shift enough copies, it'll be a big hit but it's a very hard market to try and crash.
Quantum Break looks promising but as yet no gameplay has been released. Just look at Ryse. that looked great as well and we all know how that turned out.
