@Iver The reboot game on PS4 launching at a discount (I think maybe it was $40 on release or maybe $30?) and then actually being eventually given away for free through the ‘play at home’ pandemic offerings may have cheapened the perceived value of the series in the public eye. Couple that with everyone being salty about the $70 prices in general, and then the game is supposedly even shorter than the first… well, it seems to have added up to cause the criticism of the price. It’s on sale now for $50, which will hopefully increase exposure. I expect that over the next year it’ll permanently drop to that price, but it seems these new gen games are holding value longer due to all the delays.

@Th3solution It probably could be done on PS4, but most likely a cost to frame rate or some other technical hit. Titan Fall 2 did it to a lesser effect when you could hop back and forth into the future on a certain level. That is the only other example I can think of from the top of my head.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@JohnnyShoulder There was a really enjoyable FPS on PS3 named Singularity that did something along those lines too. Unless I'm misremembering!

@Iver Oh yeah, I remember playing that on 360. Great game. The Soul Reaver games did it too. Those were probably masked behind some form of loading.

@Th3solution Yeah, the fact that it is taking advantage of the PS5 (I skipped saying full advantage since it's early) kind of gets overlooked. Well, overlooked in the sense that everybody talked about the rifts and the obvious uptick in detail and forgot about the fact that it's doing things in the game people were talking about before these systems came out (more characters and effects on screen, etc.).

I do hope it lives up to the expectations. I know I've said this before, but it really brought me back to my PS3 days when I first got my PS3 late in that generation and was wowed by the exclusives.

@JohnnyShoulder Dishonored 2 had a similar mechanic where you could jump between two dimensions (or whatever it was) within the same level.

@Th3solution what mode are you playing? I did some research before starting Rift Apart and read that Performance RT is the best mode.

Get the highest framerate and RT but slightly reduced assets and resolution. It still looks and runs really good.

Just started my journey with Commander Shep...I mean, Rivet. She's a lot fun although feels slightly lazy that she has the same weapons as Ratchet.

It's a really fun game, if Nintendo had published it everyone would be wetting their knickers.

@Col_McCafferty I decided to leave it on the default setting, which I think is fidelity mode, or whatever they call it. I might need to experiment with the Performance RT though and see how that extra frame rate makes it feel. I’m not opposed to 30-40 fps, honestly, but 60 fps feels great for certain types of games and this is probably one of those.

I was a little disappointed too about the weapons just being ported over the same on Rivet too. At least her melee attacks are different.

I think I should finish Guardians Of The Galaxy tonight and then I'm gonna see how much of a pain in the backside the remaining trophies are
I think I should be able to go for the plat but I'll need a trophy guide because I don't know what a "Slakebeast" is or where to find it

@Voltan Got my copy a few days ago and can’t wait to start it. Interested to see how you get on with the platinum.

@render Yeeeah, apparently one trophy is missable and possibly can't be done by replaying chapters... I might have to do half the game in NG+

Edit: yeah, google confirms - replaying chapters doesn't affect other chapters if you make different choices... so I'll have to play 9 chapters again... I guess I'll speedrun it while only looking for the collectibles I missed (only 3 of them)

@Voltan Trophies like that are annoying but at least it’s a good game so hopefully won’t be too much of a chore. I don’t like reading trophy guides before playing a game anyway so missing something is always a risk 😆

render

Voltan

@render Yeah, me neither - I did take a look at the trophy list (not the hidden ones but those are story-related anyway) but not a guide. Wouldn't be a problem if I played one chapter differently.

@Voltan The game sounds like it’s getting a nice flush of excitement in the community. I picked it up too and as a MCU fan I’m excited to play it eventually. It’s probably going to be a little while though.
Is there alternate endings or outcomes depending on story choices you make?

————

As for my current PS5 game — Rift Apart is coming along well. I enjoy it in the sense that it’s definitely gaming ‘comfort food.’ It’s pretty familiar but just a lot bigger and flashier.

I’m in the third world now and the playspace is huge! The hover boots help a lot and make traversal really fun. I like them much better than riding those Snail creatures in the last world. Not to mention that dragon Trudi. She was hard to control.

I don’t think I’ll get the platinum for Rift Apart, but I’m not sure. We’ll see at the end. The optional fighting arena tasks might be my stumbling block; I was able to finish the bronze cup and one of the events was pretty hard for me to clear. I died like 10 times and it was definitely starting to sap my enjoyment of the game. So if the silver and gold cups are much harder then I don’t know if I want to torture myself.

@Th3solution I don't think there are different endings other than possibly a couple versions of the short post-credits scene but some of the choices do affect how you progress through some of the levels - essentially I think you might have to do some things "the hard way" based on your previous choices.
Dialogue is definitely affected too.

For example, in one of the early levels (very mild spoilers), there's a chasm with a drawbridge but its controls are on the other side. Drax's idea is to toss Rocket to the other side and have him operate it. You can agree to that and it will save you some time but Rocket will not like it - or you can take the scenic route and Rocket will appreciate it. This might affect some other choice later in the game.

@Voltan Ah, ok — that sounds cool. So no alternate color scheme for the final ending like Mass Effect 3 then? 😜

Hi there fellow gamers. Now that I finished Rachet and Clank Rift Apart, I´m probably going for Guardians of the Galaxy that I got in a Black Friday sale along side Deathloop.
I played until chapter 4 and it´s pretty good so far. I do think what makes this game very cool and engaging is how good Eidos Montreal made these characters. The banter between them is so good.
Not only do they sound like "real" people, but their personalities are on point. Very close to their comic counterparts. Also you can get other outfits for each Guardian by just exploring the game.
How about them apples?
So yeah. Deathloop will be after and then maybe some Platinum runs for other games.
Cheers, stay safe everyone and happy gaming to us all

One combat-related trophy and a single collectible left for the Guardians platinum!
Edit: Aaaaand one to go.

Started Resident Evil Village. Spent way too long just wandering around the house 😂

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.
