@Kidfried The Last Of Us Remastered? That’s ok, it’s priced accordingly. Thank you.

@klky Wow, I forgot to mention the game's name? :') I haven't had my coffee yet, forgive me.

@klky I would add a brief note about Uncharted 4 and Batman: Arkham Knight, specifically that they're massively improved by playing the previous entries in their franchises first. Uncharted perhaps less so, it does a better job at bringing you up-to-speed, but Arkham Knight can be quite a complex tale (and just so you know, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a direct sequel to Uncharted 4, too).

Fortunately, everything's available on PS4 in remastered collections. If you'd therefore prefer playing everything in order, look for Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Batman: Return to Arkham. They're usually in some kind of sale somewhere.

If not, and you do jump right in, happy to answer any questions you may have.

Also, welcome to PushSquare!

@klky No problem, man. Both TLOU and UC4 are great games. Arkham Knight's really good too except that gameplay can get pretty repetitive at times.

Huntin' monsters erryday.

How are the .Hack RPGs? They currently have a big sale going on for PS+ members, and they have a collection of .Hack RPGs for $15 (it consists of 3 remastered PS2 games, and a 4th entry newly made just for the collection, though I'm not sure how big that last one is).

I usually prefer to grab previous gen remasters on Switch, but this seems like a lot of content for a great price (and of course the collection isn't currently on Switch).

@RR529 Lol what a coincidence, I was actually looking into the .hack series yesterday myself after seeing the Last Recode collection being on sale (though at an online store).

So yeah like you said, the collection you're thinking of is the aforementioned Last Recode one. It consists of the three games, and the fourth entry is just a couple of hours long so it's not a full game by any means. Each of the three games takes around 20 hours to complete, so they're not overly long. The collection apparently also has a selection of movies/videos which connects this trilogy with the previous one in the series. In other words, the collection does indeed give you a lot of bang for your buck.

The gameplay is real-time and they've even made the games easier with the remasters as you can now get more EXP after battles, run faster, and you can also start battles over instantly instead of having to go to the title screen if you lose one. Moreover, the story also seems to be rather interesting. The plot is that you're playing as a person who is playing an MMORPG, and you can leave the game and read your email, watch videos on the internet and so on. So it's a rather interesting concept. Furthermore, the games tend to learn toward a heavy narrative, so if you like stories in JRPGs then the games should suit you.

This is everything I managed to learn from researching the collection yesterday. It honestly seems worth buying at the price you mentioned, and for myself I can get it for €20 so it's worth it for me as well. I just need to confirm that I'd actually play these games if I buy them, so I still need to watch more gameplay before I decide.

After checking my funds, I decided to buy that .Hack collection that's on sale. Probably won't play it soon since I recently completed Tales of Zestiria, but I'm excited to eventually try it nonetheless.

So I am looking to get a PS4 again to play some of the RPGs I missed. Is it worth it you think to dip into the PS4. I have a switch, but the game ports just aren't holding up for me...

RPG, FPS, Adventure,Action...oh I like 'em all!

@scubydo You’re certainly going to get a biased opinion on here, but I would unequivocally say “Yes!” The only reason not to get a PS4 to catch up on some of the excellent RPGs and other games that have come out recently is if you want to wait for the PS5 since it will be backwards compatible. But it will probably be close to a year and a half until that’s released so I very much would encourage you to get a PS4. If RPGs are your thing, you would have plenty with the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn, Persona 5, Dragon Quest 11, AC Origins and Odyssey, Bloodborne and all the FromSoftware RPGs, A bunch of Yakuza games, The Witcher 3, ....
So, yeah - there’s plenty. Lots of excellent Western RPGs and even some JRPGs.

Edit: I should have just referred you here:

Scan the list and see if anything strikes your fancy. There’s lots more even after these to make a PS4 well worth your purchase.

Any of you guys play Vampyr on PS4? I played a few hours of it on PC with Game Pass but it ran very poorly for me and I stopped. They have it on sale on PSN right now. If it runs better on console I'll pick it up.

@Splat I played it on an OG Xbox One and it ran fine for me. Not sure if you have a PS4 Pro but I am sure it will run better on that then an OG Xbox One. I have read from several sources that it did run the poorest on PC.

@Tasuki Yeah, I have a Pro. I really don't understand why it ran so poorly for me on PC? My set up is far from a beast but can play most games at high or at the very least mid settings. I was getting really bad performance even on the lowest settings with Vampyr.

@Splat I couldn't tell you I am not techy enough to even begin to understand computers besides the basics, but everyone I know who played it on PC has had problems with it

Hello guys, I am a new one here, I wanna know aht d ya all think about AC Origins? I played Odyssey but story part was lacking. And I heard Origins aint that bad

@ZeroOverOne Welcome to PushSquare!

From what I've heard, Assassin's Creed: Origins has a more complete story than Odyssey, but it depends on your mileage with Egyptian history and mythology. As I understand it, the setting for each Assassin's Creed can make or break it, so if you're interested in Egyptology then you'll likely have a great time.

But it'll likely be relatively similar, and there's always the overarching franchise lore and modern day sections (don't expect any answers there, either).

@ZeroOverOne I absolutely loved Origins. Ancient Egypt has always fascinated me; I really enjoyed seeing and exploring the pyramids and other real-life locations. The world is most definitely the star of the game, and Ubisoft did a great job recreating it.

One flaw is how different parts of the map are effectively gated off by the levels of enemies, so whilst you can go anywhere you like, in practice there is some grinding from side-quests required otherwise it'll be too difficult. Early side quests are quite dull, but they greatly improve as the game progresses. Combat is really fun and I enjoyed the stealth when capturing forts.

The story is decent and feels like quite a personal tale. Bayek is an excellent protagonist. The game is set at the tail end of Hellenistic Egypt during the civil war and Cleopatra's power struggle with her brother, as well dealing with the Romans. The western part of the map is based on Roman settlements in northern Libya.

@mookysam You really make it sound compelling. I’ve had it as a goal to play for a while, along with Odyssey. Did you play Odyssey yet? What’s your take on which is better to play if I could only play one of them? Of course in a perfect world I’d play both, starting with Origins, but the more time trudges on, and PS5 looms, and the number of great games of 2020 get closer, I’m not sure if I’ll be able to devote 200+ hours to one franchise.

@Th3solution Not played Odyssey yet, although I bought it last week and aim to start it next month (if I ever finish Red Dead 2 that is). I actually delayed getting it for so long because of the length of the game. Playing both back to back would be exhausting One aspect that looks really interesting to me is how it incorporates classical mythology.

Seems like they included a small "Big in Japan" sale into the ongoing July sale. I'm seeing lots of heavy discounts on titles such as Odin Sphere Leifthrasir (€13), The Witch and the Hundred Knight (€8), Akiba's Trip (€5), Psycho-Pass (€10) just to name a few that I'm personally interested in getting. Also worth noting are Dreamfall Chapters (€5) and Yomawari: Midnight Shadows (€8). The digital versions are really cheap now in comparison to the physical formats and these ones don't take up too much space either (except Dreamfall Chapters).

I'm considering buying a few of these, has anyone played any of these games and could recommend some specific ones that you feel are definitely worth buying at those prices?
