get2sammyb commented on Soapbox: Uncharted 4's Higher Difficulties Kil...:

@Anchorsam_9 I thought the firefights were fantastic in Uncharted 4, though I completely agree with @DrJoeystein that the higher difficulties discourage the game from being played the way it's intended. Disappointing.

Also agree with @johncalmac, I tend to avoid high difficulty levels in general these days — I just don't find them fun in the slightest, and only even entertain the idea of playing them for Trophies.

I do enjoy games like Resident Evil 5, however, where you can increase your character and replay with all of your upgrades intact, so it feels like the game scales with you to some degree. That's fun.



get2sammyb commented on PS4 Pro Requires Very Little Investment from D...:

Just to be clear: I'm definitely not criticising CDPR here. If they're done with the game and want to devote resources elsewhere, I totally get that. It's just a bit of a shame they can't spare one person, as TW3 is definitely one of the games that's still relevant and would benefit greatly from an update.

I totally get it, though.



get2sammyb commented on Guide: How to Transfer PS4 Data to a New Console:

@Shellcore If you're doing a trade-in then you can do a Back Up and Restore. I don't think everything carries across like this process, but you will at least be able to maintain all of your saves and (I believe) Settings.

There are quite a few options available.



get2sammyb commented on Poll: Should the PS4 Pro Have a UHD Blu-ray Pl...:

Firstly, I do think UHD Blu-ray should have been included purely because it's always nice to have options.

Having said that, I realised writing this article that the last time I used a Blu-ray disc was when I reviewed the PS4 in 2013. And I only put it in to test how the Blu-ray playback worked on the console.

So yeah, I think it's a strange omission. But when I consider my recent relationship with Blu-ray (and how I haven't even touched one for three years) I kind get why Sony didn't include it if I'm indicative of the market at large.



get2sammyb commented on Review: BioShock: The Collection (PS4):

Great review, Ken. I actually think BioShock 2 is the best entry — perhaps not in terms of originality or storytelling, but I really liked the combat in that version.

Sounds like a good package.



get2sammyb commented on TGS 2016: Japan Sure Knows Its Audience for Pl...:

EA's right, I think — it's very early days. I'm not entirely convinced the future of virtual reality is necessarily in games either — it's going to be huge for education and stuff like that, though, no question.

AR and VR will both be big in the future, but what's releasing this year is literally the NES of VR. If that makes sense...

@BAMozzy Was just reading an interview with Jim Ryan before I saw your comment so thought I'd share: "One of the reasons behind Pro is for us to future proof ourselves in terms of the PS4 life cycle. Our audience is increasingly enjoying its video content through streaming services. We announced 4K initiatives with YouTube and Netflix, and obviously other conversations are on-going. In light of the future, we definitely see streaming as the way forward in terms of video."

Their stance could, of course, change — but it looks like they don't really see UHD Blu-ray as all that important.
