NathanUC commented on Poll: What Do You Think of Final Fantasy XV on...:

My biggest complaints: I keep jumping around while trying to pick up items or interact with things. Using X to both jump and interact is annoying (not to mention when a shop owner has a quest... press x to shop press x to quest). Otherwise, I wish some of the menus would open/close a little faster. I'm about 15 hours in

NathanUC commented on Round Up: Final Fantasy XV PS4 Reviews Hit the...:

@ApostateMage Final Fantasy games are subjective. Some people love XIII and dislike X, others think VII is the best game of all time but hate the rest of the series. Plenty of people (like myself) really enjoyed the XIII trilogy. When it comes to Final Fantasy, take scores with a grain of salt; instead, focus on the review content.

NathanUC commented on How Well Does Final Fantasy XV Run on PS4 and ...:

I was hoping the unlocked framerate option would be available at launch, but I have faith that SE will release it in a timely manner (and fix the frame pacing issues). Despite the issues, I still plan to play it in 'high quality' mode until patched to remove the 30fps cap on "lite".

NathanUC commented on PSN Down Ahead of the Thanksgiving Holidays:

I would be at least 50% less annoyed if their default error wasn't "Down for Maintenance."... They do understand what actual maintenance is right? If I asked for a 24/7 maintenance window at work, I'd be asking for another job.

NathanUC commented on Talking Point: Why Are Fall's Biggest Blockbus...:

Final Fantasy XV flopping? WHAT? THIS GAME WILL BE PERFECT AND WILL SELL LIKE HOT CAKES. YOU TAKE THAT BACK

In terms of the others, I didn't buy a single one. They all seem kinda lackluster to me (not really into pvp shooters). I'm also saving all my time for FFXV (surprise!).

EDIT: I should add that I LOVED Watch Dogs 1. I have 0 interest in this new one because of the new setting/mood of the game. I miss gritty Chicago and I really liked Aiden.

NathanUC commented on PS4 Firmware Update 4.06 Improves the Quality ...:

@nathanSF There isn't an option to do this, but there should be. Games like World of Final Fantasy look AWFUL on the pro right now (either due to a bug or terrible pro implementation). I really really wish I could disable the Pro mode in that game.... the blurry stuff gives me a headache.

NathanUC commented on Preorder: Snare the Hottest PS4 Games, Hardwar...:

Ya, all the Amazon stuff only bothers me when it doesn't line up with the rest of the site. This article is an example of an acceptable use of the links (except for the hardare, that seems unnecessary), but the "10 games we wish would be patched for PS4 Pro" was a bit sloppy.

It seems a bit 'forced' at times, but if it's a decent alternative to advertisements, I'm not that apposed. Operating a quality site costs money, so it's a tough balance to both monetize and not 'annoying' the viewers too much.

I really liked the first one, but maybe I'm partial since it takes place in Chicago and I love Chicago. From what I've seen in the trailers, all the nitty gritty stuff is way out the window. Looks a bit too hipsterlight hearted for me =

NathanUC commented on World of Final Fantasy Looks Worse on PS4 Pro ...:

@FullbringIchigo Yeah, I'm just attributing most of these to being patches for older games. Any game developed from the ground up with PS4 and PS4 Pro both in mind should be heaps better. Either way, the Pro modes should be OPTIONAL. It's silly that we don't have the choice to run native resolution vs super sampled resolution/higher resolution.

NathanUC commented on World of Final Fantasy Looks Worse on PS4 Pro ...:

@FullbringIchigo Vita version has some pretty bad frame rate drops here and there compared to the standard PS4 version. It's almost certainly a bad/rushed patch that is causing the visual issues on PS4 Pro. Either the higher resolution is breaking some of their other visual effects, or they had to disable to them to hit a targeted resolution. Either way, it's unacceptable.

NathanUC commented on Video: PS4 Pro Is the Quietest PlayStation 4 t...:

@Nickolaidas If it's that loud, something is wrong with it. Either it needs to be cleaned out or the thermal paste is bad (or it needs to be exchange for a new one). A properly working PS4 shouldn't be much louder than a whisper under the heaviest of loads.
EDIT: and I didn't mean any offense about the "cute" remark. I'm just saying it seems silly people are trying to compare how loud the Pro is compared to the standard/slim. From what I've heard, they are all about the same and all MUCH more quiet than a lot of modern GPU and CPU air coolers. THOSE are systems worth complaining about noise levels (or just upgrading to more efficient cooling solutions)

NathanUC commented on PS4 Pro Sold Out Until After Christmas, Says A...:

I plan to pick mine up in person rather than order from Amazon, but part of me is still worried they'll be out of stock.... Considering the mountain of PSVR that were still available on launch day, I probably don't have anything to worry about, but I worry nonetheless.

NathanUC commented on PS4 Pro Will Support These 41 Games at Launch:

@stevejcrow I still sold my old PS4 with the 1tb 7,200rpm drive just to set it apart from the other used ps4 on the market. I sold my launch edition PS4 with the 1tb 7,200 drive and 5 old games for $275! I feel super lucky (other than the fact that now I don't have a ps4...)

NathanUC commented on PS4 Pro Will Support These 41 Games at Launch:

@Boomtown_Raider I've been using a 1tb 7,200 rpm drive on my standard PS4, so I'm just concerned I'd 'feel' the difference. In theory, using a 5,400rpm drive should be about 25% slower than what I'm used to. My girlfriends PS4 is still on stock and it's a fairly noticeable difference (but I wouldn't say 25%)

NathanUC commented on PS4 Pro Will Support These 41 Games at Launch:

@Splat Yeah I'm still not sure what I'll do yet either. I'll probably just tough it out with the stock 1tb drive until either cost goes down or capacity/speed goes up on the smaller 2.5" drives. It's a bummer that (apparently) 15mm drives won't fit.

NathanUC commented on Review: World of Final Fantasy (PS4):

@IAmDavey On Vita? They couldn't fit all of the audio on the cartridge so they had to add the voice acting as a patch. You can only do so much with 4gb. If they had tried to squeeze it on, it would have been horribly compressed at best.

NathanUC commented on Don't Expect Reviews of Skyrim and Dishonored ...:

I mean, unless they are still working on a day 1 patch... I don't understand why they'd wait to send out review copies. It could only hurt consumers like me who don't know much about the Dishonored series.. I'll miss out on all the pre-launch hype and it will just get lost in the back of my mind while I play other games releasing at a similar time.
I couldn't tell you how many times I pre-ordered a game (that I wasn't already interested in) after reading a review.

NathanUC commented on Review: World of Final Fantasy (PS4):

I... really like Tama's daialog.. it's my the-favorite part of the game so the-far.
If anyone has both the PS4 and PSV versions, is the crosssave automatic or do you have to manually upload/download everytime via the cross save menu?

NathanUC commented on How Much Better Does Skyrim Look on PS4?:

As someone who got a platinum in the PS3 version before it was patched, I don't think I could ever touch the game again, but I'm really excited to watch my GF play it for the first time. Like everyone else, I'm excited to see how the PS4 Pro version will look

NathanUC commented on Review: RIDE 2 (PS4):

It takes 4 limbs and a whole body to operate a motorcycle. I just don't really see a good way to mimic that with a controller. It seems like a decent enough game, but without a demo I'm not sure I'd chance it at full price. Dat H2R though.....

NathanUC commented on Elite PS4 Controller Isn't Something Sony Is I...:

I mean... I guess I can almost see the logic... but it's such flawed logic. Third parties already sell fancy modded controllers (that cost nearly as much as a console!).

It's not even always for an advantage.. individuals with injuries could really benifit from paddle'd buttons.

Oh well, I guess I'll just have to settle for my unified experience on PS4 Pro with better resolution/framerate, OS performance, and share features compared to all of the unified PS4 users.

NathanUC commented on Sony Confirms SATA 3 Hard Drive Support for PS...:

Is it still on a USB controller though? If it is, it won't really matter. I should also point out, you almost certainly won't get faster install/load times unless you're using an SSD (not even with a hybrid or a 7200rpm).
