@andreoni79 I wouldn't recommend you get Spider-Man then ;-p

@KALofKRYPTON I'm not interested in superheroes at all, but if a game is perfectly crafted I have no problems in wearing embarrassing costumes (for example I loved Batman Arkham Asylum). When I discovered that the Spiderman Goty edition was just the vanilla disc + vouchers + patches I lost every interest in it.
I'm surely gonna finish Infamous SS to see if it opens up somehow, but I just can't believe how elementary this game is...

@andreoni79 Seriously, don't buy Spider-Man. If the Infamous: Second Son gameplay loop annoys you a third of the way in - then Spider-Man will annoy you just as much.

I had Second Son on release and got First Light on release too and loved getting the plat's for them. After the hype died down a touch I got Spider-Man, which plays pretty much the same as The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

While beautifully put together, Spider-Man is essentially just Infamous mashed with most post 6th gen Spider-Man game with better traversal presentation. With no particular interest in the character to motivate you, may as well not bother with it.

@KALofKRYPTON Thanks for the advice!
Another thing that surely makes the game look dumb is the city itself: populated only by people in their thirties, with nothing to do except walking around with an umbrella under their arm and a smartphone in the other until they start yelling at me or collapsing around like kids crying for attention... It's so bad it's almost funny!

Praise the Sun, and Mario too.

Wednesday I accidentally stomped on the retail copy on Infamous: Second Son I forgot I bought months ago since it was just € 8. Put some hours in it and I wonder why people are hyped for the new game by the same studio...

Did you literally stomp on the disc? I'm surprised it still works!

Sucker Punch's next game, Ghosts of Tsushima looks a lot different to their previous games. And a load of people actually enjoyed Second Son, which is is why some are hyped to see how it turns out. Whenever that will be. 🤷‍♂️

Taken a break from DQXI and and gone back to Ghost Recon Wildlands, I played it briefly for a few hours before DQXI. Am enjoying it so far, I like the emergent gameplay and it can go tits up fairly quickly if your not careful. I found it really accessible and within my first hour or so I was causing mayhem with a chopper. It is not as chaotic as say a Just Cause or Farcry game, but you are still free pretty much to lark about if you don't wanna do any other the missions. Been playing solo and don't feel at a disadvantage so far, your team AI is fairly good with only a couple of times them not being able to lock on to a target. Also take note Monster Hunter World, you can pause the game in this!

Started playing Yakuza Kiwami 2 again and I gotta say that it feels great to be back playing a Yakuza game again. While the story is different in each game, the open world aspect stays largely the same and so I personally feel like you need to take a long break in between each game in order to fully appreciate each one. Otherwise you're just going to blaze through the story and neglect all the side content because you've already done that stuff in the previous games.

Anyway, I'm really loving this game so far. The plot feels unique and the upgraded engine makes the game feel like a major step up from the previous two titles. Also, the fact that you can save at any time now from the pause menu is such a nice thing. The combat feels smooth as always and even though the developers have removed the different fighting styles, the combat still feels fun and varied in other ways. However, one gripe I have with the game is the lack of meaningful substories. I'm constantly encountering ones where the objective is very simple and is deprived of any substance. These feel short and like they're only there because of the Clan mini-game.

Regardless, I'm having a blast with this game and I can't wait to play more of it.

Hallelujah!

I have quite the Yakzua backlog to get through now I own Kiwami 2 through to 6 but will spread them out like you say.

@Thrillho Yeah that would be a wise choice. I'll be getting the Yakuza 3-4-5 collection next year but I probably won't be playing Yakuza 3 until the second or third quarter in.

I haven't realised this until now but I'm really glad that Yakuza: Like a Dragon is going to have turn-based battles because after playing through the first seven mainline games, I'd probably wish for different gameplay, lol.

Funny about all this Yakuza talk, I started 0 this week. I haven't finished Horizon yet, but I was tired of it just sitting not being played.

Only on Chapter 4, and it's awesome that you also get to play as Majima. So far, the game feels just like Kiwami (I don't know why I expected different), so I'm accommodated well enough to it already.

@KratosMD I rattled through the first three or four chapters last night and the changes to the game have been a bit of a shock. Getting rid of the different combat styles is a bold move and for me so far it feels a little repetitive at the moment just hammering square and triangle, and occasionally running in circles until you charge up the heavy attack.

I feel the same way about sub stories so far as they have felt a little superficial and I'm surprised that a significant proportion have been single fights and then they're done. The UFO catcher one was also way harder than previous games (technique this time was mostly just nudging it towards the hole rather than picking it up) and I completely fluke the golf one by getting a hole in one.

The game also has a lot of blur when you turn on the spot which is something I HATE and took me a while o get used to.

@DerMeister Having played Zero before Kiwami, I quite liked that I knew all of Majima's attack styles having used them myself. The dancing style is pretty annoying to fight against! I'm so glad Kiwami is the only game to have had the Kiwami move feature though as for a significant proportion of the game, those high level enemies just recovered loads of health, making those big fights even more frustrating.

@Thrillho Whenever that happened, I just made sure I had some Tauriners on hand (The item that boosts Heat, not sure if I spelled it right) to stop it. It was still annoying though if you didn't have the proper move unlocked, so yeah, I understand the frustration.

@DerMeister Yeah, it was more that the abilities unlocked so late in the game that was annoying.

Well, it seems my Mafia III playthrough has hit a snag. One of the missions isn't spawning any more, leaving me a bit stuck. I'm looking around for a solution but if I can't fix it I might settle for watching a Let's Play so I can see how the story turns out. Either way it won't spoil my memories of what has been an enjoyable game.

Instead I've started Iconoclasts, of which I played a couple of hours today and enjoyed. It's very old-school in presentation and in execution, but it seems to be grappling with some pretty heavy themes. Seems like a game I'm going to enjoy.

I'm also toying with playing the Modern Warfare remaster we got on PS Plus recently. While figuring out my fave PS3 games for mcnoisy's definitive list, I realised I've never actually played the campaign. Me and my mates would just play the multiplayer back in the day, in local split-screen. It must be the only game where I've played the multiplayer but not the single player mode.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 Which mission isn't popping for you in Mafia III, may I ask? Shame you're encountering such a progress-halting bug because you're right, it's a cracking game.

If this thread was titled What PS4 Games are you Currently NOT Playing, for me that would be Dragon's Quest XI and Ghost Recon Wildlands.

The former because I think the story or characters are not connecting with me and latter has become a bit samey. I've also am a bit overwhelmed by the size of the map, there is still loads to cover and my enthusiasm has been sapped.

So I fired up Dangerous Golf which I got for something like 2 quid ages ago on psn. It's okay, nothing mind blowing or anything just something I can play without really thinking.

Shame you aren't enjoying either game @JohnnyShoulder . I did hope you would get along better with XI then I did VIII !


As for me I've finished the Code Vein trial. Having found out that I can use the online in the trial at least without needing PS Plus is a boon.

The bosses in the super hard depths dunegon were kicking my butt six ways to sunday.

Met a few helpful folks and juuuuuust managed to beat them... Had a fun playing with a friend from the beginning too.

Also found out that despite there being only six categories of weapons, they do have different movesets between weapons in the same category which is good as I wasn't too sure if they would.

Still keep forgetting to block or parry though!

Looking forward to Pushsquare's review

Though I'm not really feeling Odin Sphere at the moment... Think I might have to boot up a Souls thanks to Vein (I won't be able to get that right away either)

@RogerRoger It's the ones to do with the bin lorries and all that. After a quick search it would seem that a few people have had similar problems and managed to proceed, so I think I'll be fine

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 Ah, okay. I think I know where you're at.

Fingers crossed you're able to carry on. The ending is pretty decent.

Been playing some more Yakuza Kiwami 2 and I've finally unlocked the Cabaret Club mini-game, which means this is the only thing I'll be doing in the game for the next 10 hours.

Seriously though, I love this mini-game. I beat it in Yakuza 0 and also in Kiwami 2 before I lost my save file and I'll happily play through it again a second time. Such an addicting mini-game!
