Not avoiding 100% because it's difficult. I just don't see the point

Re: PS4 discussion thread

I enjoyed Tomb Raider, but with Watchdogs right around the corner, it's probably not worth it. Wait a while and pick up a used copy after the price goes down imo.

Bought Wolfenstein, played the first hour or so. Really fun so far with some throwback stuff already. Feels like Return to Castle Wolfenstein, which I played a ton of. Looking forward to playing more.

Well I'll keep my fingers crossed then. The game really deserves to be released on PS4. Though it might seem greedy if gamers will be forced to pay for it again for no obvious reason other than compatibility.

Re: PS4 discussion thread

finally pulled the trigger on ps4 today and ordered mlb the show. should get everything in a week or 2. Is there a beginners guide somewhere that I should check out? I'm assuming I will also need a 2nd controller since I will be playing with my wife. Any co-op recommendations that have good next-gen graphics? I've been checking out metacritic for game ideas. Is that the best site to use?

There's a manual that will install when you play the game. Just a fair warning though, it took about an hour and a half to completely install the game. When it's installing, you can't play it.

mbn to be first party and not have to deal with some of the moderately oppressive requirements other developers have to deal with like "you must be able to play the game while it's installing" which can be pretty wtfbbq depending on the type of game you're working on

Re: PS4 discussion thread

new ps4 buyer here asking prob dumb question again. What are benefits of the charging cradle thing? I believe I can just charge the controllers using the cable that comes with them like for PS3 right? Does each controller come with a charging cable?

Also, anyone in here use the gel tab things? They are like $6, wondering if there is a big added benefit from them. Search on "gel" ITT yielded no results.

Also, inFAMOUS second son is $37 today on Amazon, think I'm gonna order that one. Seems like a good next gen game based on reviews ITT.

New controllers don't come with a charging cable. You'd just end up with 1 cable and multiple controllers. Charging station is worth it imo.

Infamous is also a really good game.

Soooo Watch Dogs is pretty sick. So many different things going on the map, it's hard to decide what I should be doing in the game. But I spent a good majority of the 3 hours I played last night following people around, stealing their money and ****ing up the bad guys.

Visually it's incredible. I don't know why so many people were worried about its graphics not being up to par. Everything is very smooth.

Re: PS4 discussion thread

I bought a ps4 yesterday for Watchdogs and I tried to play it tonight but it's not a game to play when you're shattered so I'm looking forward to waking up fresh and playing a full day of it tomorrow.

isn't the charging cable a standard cord used for like cell phones, kindle, etc? forget the name of it off the top of my head, micro/mini usb maybe

Re: PS4 discussion thread

I bought the PS4 deal from Groupon several days ago but Groupon is painfully slow at shipping so I may not get the PS4 for another 2 weeks potentially. But the games and controlled I ordered off Amazon are already here. What are the repercussions of going out to Walmart and buying a PS4 and then returning a different factory sealed PS4 in its place? Or is there some linking of the serial number of the PS4 on the receipt. I'm also unsure what the implications would be w.r.t. the warranty.

Just go buy one from Best Buy and return it within 14 days for a full refund. Might not get you through until yours arrives, but at least it's two weeks and you could always do it again at a different store.

I recently did this for different reasons.

Re: PS4 discussion thread

Are the load times for the Show any quicker for the PS4 compared to the PS3? I plan to pick this up soon for the new version.

Also, for most multiplayer games are more people going with the PS4 this generation or is the xbox still winning that crowd?
