  1. Fortnite

    Surprised this doesn't have a topic yet. I downloaded it a week or so ago, and have only had time to play on a couple of occasions, but it seems really good fun. It's FREE on PS Store, it's in open BETA for a year or so - but it works very well. It's like PUBG (Player Unknowns Battle Grounds) - you and 100 other people get dumped into a map (you jump out of a bus held up by a balloon somewhere along it's journey) into a large, open map with small towns, forests, lakes etc. It's all contained on a large island. You get dumped with nothing but a pick axe which you use to destroy the environment which gives you resources (metal, wood & brick). You also find weapons (different colours = different level items) and ammo, ranging from pistols, to DMR's, sub-machine guns & assault rifles and rifles. With the resources, you can build fortifications quickly - so if there is a building you know someone is in, you could build a ramp up the house and go in from the roof. The name of the game is to be the last player/team alive. The thing that stops camping is a big storm which encroaches the island in a big circle. If you don't stay WITHIN the circle, you lose health and eventually die. The circle gets smaller and smaller, which pushes the players together and forces conflict. The storm initially doesn't move, and then moves intermittently which gives you fair time to gather weapons, harvest resources and make plans. It's cartoony in style, you can jump about 6ft, the weapons have RNG (random number generator) accuracy (meaning there is spread to your bullets, making distant targets hard to hit apart from rifles), but it's fun as hell with a couple of you playing. Should you die, you can quit the game quickly and just start a new game, so you don't have to wait around. That said, generally speaking if you get shot and lose your health, you get "knocked out" which means you can potentially crawl to safety and get revived. You have to shoot knocked out players to kill them permanently. Lots of videos about it on Youtube - but it's FREE and you should definitely download it and have a few games with people you play with. Because it's arcadey, you don't have to be a pro at shooting games. Random video for your pleasure;
  2. Ni No Kuni 2

    This is a game for anime loving 5 year olds only, if you are only one or neither of those things, be best to leave now the thread now tbf. I must admit I have some reservations over the story, in comparison to the first game/s, at least judging by what the trailer shows. Basically I want Mr Drippy back, ent it mun? But gosh it looks beautiful.
  3. Grand Turismo Sport

    OMG, it looks beautiful. I know they always look good in this series, but 4k wonderfulness is probably enough for me to get involved.
  4. Battlefield 1

    Surely we are very close to some info or a trailer now? Strong rumours about it being set in WW1 and a release date of Q3 2016. If true wont the weaponry be limited? Anybody got any other info/rumours? This will be a release day purchase for me.
  5. Overwatch

    Season 2 has started and there is a free trial this weekend for anyone interested. I would heartily recommend the game. With over 20 characters there are tons of ways to play and I think most people will find their niche. Those not accustomed to fps can play as healers or mobile tanks with Tesla cannons. There's not much you can't do!
  6. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2017)

    Anyone playing the Beta? Despite its flaws, I loved the first game (2015). It did not have a huge amount of content on launch but I really liked the casual arcade feel of the game. A lot of the early balance issues and grenade spam were fixed and I had a blast. Supremacy on Endor was probably the best map I've played in a multiplayer console shooter. The best thing in the beta is the space combat. I think it's good enough to carry the game and the closest we will get to a dogfighting multiplayer game on console. I didn't care much for the infantry fighting. There is a huge amount of grenade spam, little choice in weapons available and once defenders figure out that turrets are OP it will become a very frustrating experience. I also am experiencing frame rate drops during hectic action. The most egregious aspect is the new lootbox system. It's blatantly pay2win with some legendarys offering huge bonuses (40% extra base health on starfighters being the most obvious example) I suspect they will leave this in until month or two after launch then nerf the hell out of it. They did a similar thing with the preorder bonus (Han Solo's pistol) in the first game. This is the main reason I wont be buying at launch.
  7. Everybody's Golf

    Playstation 4 exclusive arcade golf game, which also features fishing, golf carts, and the simple but hugely effective use of the golf courses acting as open world hubs for online play. It's the 6th mainline game in the series, all of which bar the first game have been developed by Clap Hanz - who have only ever developed either Everybody's Golf or Tennis games. In the 20 years since the first game they've refined the game play to a point which is now at it's absolute pinnacle. It's incredibly easy to pick up and play, but, like the best games, demands time to master. For anyone looking to pick it up, it does require a kinda tenuous intro, and it's all very twee, but if you try to put that to one side it's a blast. I haven't played too much so far, but there does appear to be lots of locked content - such as courses that must be unlocked before you can play them online. The character creation tool is neet, and although the graphics are no where near top drawer on the platform they work as well as they need to. It's so not a full price release and can be picked up for £25 now having been released in the US yesterday, Europe today, and Japan tomorrow - although I saw lots of Japanese players online earlier. I'd definitely recommend it. The devs have a track record of constantly updating the game, and with this one having such an online presence, that's sure to continue. In short, it'll be great fun on the coach or online - and there are competitive and team modes.
  8. Rocket League

    That's right, guy - news at the last on the sequel to not just the best game of all time, but humanity's greatest achievement, the game known the world over simply as... 'Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars'. **** yes.
  9. PES 18

    Anyone playing the PES 2018 online beta? First time playing PES, usually a FIFA player and i'm liking it . The thing that has drawn me to PES this year is the fact that they are introducing ranked 2v2 (about time!), and ranked 3v3. You can create clans and stuff so that should be cool. I feel like the physics are better in FIFA, it's really hard to judge the flight of the ball when it's in the air. But the passing is much better on PES and feels less "assisted". Defending i'm uncertain about, it seems there's a bit of an issue with getting a player like Neymar for example, and just running through everyone. A lot of goals are scored this way. Dunno if it's just FIFA noobs like myself not knowing what they are doing. There is an element of "randomness" to PES which i'm not sure if I like. Will definitely be buying this year and giving it a go instead of FIFA.
  10. Horizon Zero Dawn

    PS4 exclusive from Killzone devs Guerrilla Games, out next week and reviewing very well. Post apocalyptic action role player, with third person combat involving spears, bow and arrows, harpoon guns, stealth, and an open world. The biggest draw here is probably the fancy pants looking enemies - animals and dinosaurs in robot form referred to simply as 'Machines' rule the world, the reason for which is examined in the story. Of which is apparently one of the weaker aspects of the game. The open world itself and combat hold up very well it seems, and it's pretty stunning to look at. There's a few elements taken from other games - a Batman style 'focus' allows you to survey the area and locate Machine weak points, there's also the Ubisoft approach to the open world in so far as bits and bobs are dotted all over to investigate, and you can climb giant giraffe-like machines instead of radio towers to unlock sections of the map. I was always rather impressed by the teasers we've seen over the years, looks like it might actually live up to the expectation.
  11. Paladins

    The F2P hero shooter, Paladins, has recently hit the PS4 as a beta and I have enjoyed playing it. It is very similar to Overwatch, for those used to that game, with a few subtle differences. The champions are more rounded, meaning that supports and tanks can output a fair amount of damage. There is no hero switching (rather there are moba-esque upgrades you can level up to counter certain set ups). Ultimates are far less powerful meaning the inevitable team wipes you get in Overwatch are rarely seen. It's obviously less polished & not as well voice acted but it's a decent game in its own right. So far it's not pay2win. All the champions can be unlocked with the founders pack (around £10-15) and the loadout cards can be bought with minimal grinding (I have been able to get the cards I want for any hero by about level 4). Aside from the founders pack, I can't see any reason to spend money in the game as the cosmetics are very basic at the moment. The only incentive may be to purchase xp boosts to decrease the time it takes to get into competitive play (at the moment it will probably take 20-30 hours to qualify)
  12. NASCAR Heat Evolution 2

    Yeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaw It scores about 70-80% depending upon the review site but I got it as soon as it was downloadable off PSN ( £39.99 ). Been playing for a couple of days now, loving it. Features the trucks, Xfinity and of course the Cup series. Won't do a review but google is your friend. Very enjoyable indeed. I don't buy many games but I'm thoroughly happy with this one especially career mode. It came out on Thursday I think, physical copies only by import at this moment but as said is available on PSN not sure when Euro release is. I'm giving it an 8/10. Bonus, that you get to smash Danica's rear end in, if you want. Ooooh la la British redneck, signing off.
  13. Playstation 4

    As there is already a topic for 'Xbox 720', and has been for some time, I felt it only fair to make one for the 'PS4' aswell. Well, kind of. There is even less info on this than there is for the new Xbox. Well I say even less, there's practically nothing. However, the recent annoucement of The Last of Us release date has put the rumour mill into overdrive. It was originally assumed that The Last of Us would be given a pre-xmas 2013 slot to be Sony's big money grabber for the period, as nothing else major is expected for then. But with the (much earlier than anticipated) release of The Last of Us being Q2 2013, certain corners of the internet sprang to the conclusion that the PS4 would be released Xmas 2013, as the new Xbox is expected to. The latest rumour, though, is that it won't be until after that - much later possibly, as far as Q3 2014. Which begs the quesion, what does Sony have up it's sleave for next Christmas? Nothing at all? Unlikely. Maybe another essential bit of kit for your PS3 like Wonderbook or Move. It's also alledged to be codenamed 'Thebes'. I must admit that my preference, even before specs and anything else are announced, is for the new PS over the new Xbox, for the simple reason that I have owned all of Sony's consoles and prefer them over MS'.
  14. Nioh

    Anyone picking up Nioh? Reviews are pretty great so I think I'll trade in Resi 7 for it on Wednesday.
  15. Sonic Mania

    Can't wait to play Sonic Mania, the only game I've been excited about since Metal Gear Solid 5.
  16. No Man's Sky

    Thought there was a thread on this, couldn't find it though. Looks interesting, space exploration is for me at least, still a pretty exciting prospect in a game. The concern of 'what you actually do', and why you actually do it, is something most gamers are going to have to be convinced of before the game comes out though, I think. There's an interesting interview with the dev's at E3 here which is worth a read, one of the most interesting points I picked out was this Curious. They also use games like Minecraft and Terraria as examples of games where players just get on with playing, and the concerns of why, and the backstory to where they are, isn't important. I remain unconvinced, but am quite eager to have a go myself all the same.
  17. Witcher 3

    Got 10/10 on Gamespot & IGN. Reviewing very highly across the board. I've never played any of the games, don't know what they're about, don't know if I'd like them, but after reading the reviews, it almost certainly seems like there would be a good game there. Anyone getting it?
  18. Persona 5

    Confirmed by Atlus, yeaahhhhhhhhhhh The bad news is, that's a PS3 release date in Japan, so I think it's reasonable to expect the US/EU release in Summer '15...which is soooooooo far away nuuuuhhhhhh. Ofc most of us will be well settled in to the next gen by then, but that's really no different to the PS2 release of P4 well in to the life of the PS3. Hopefully they will manage to get P6 out on PS4 before the next gen though? Heh. Other news is that is not the only Persona game on it's way. There's also Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth on 3DS which is a dungeon crawler featuring chars from P3 and P4, Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold which is a sequel (and therefore a second sequel to P4) Persona 4 Arena and IF THAT WASNT ENOUGH, there is also Persona 4: Dancing All Night which is, yes, a dance/rhythm game for Vita. Awesommee~
  19. PS4 must play list

    What is VTs must play PS4 list I wonder? Obviously there's the exclusives but some will be more essential than others.
  20. Couldn't find a thread for this so thought I'd start one. Fancied a bit of a nostalgia trip and this popped it's head up about the right time. Went round 4 shops today to pick it up and all sold out, even the online retailers appear to have sold out. Did they massively underestimate sales for this, produce limited stock or has it just sold that well? Either way I'm sure it'll be just as good as it was 20(has it really been that long) years ago.
  21. Until Dawn

    Ok, so I picked this up today. The reviews were all good, and I'm happy to say so far it's good. Yes it's basically an interactive movie but it works really well. If you've got a PlayStation Camera it records your reactions at certain jump scare points, so leave the lights on. Graphically superb, and looking forward to playing with a headset on too. I do like the idea of so many different possibilities depending on how you play. Definitely one for a couple of play throughs. Oh, and the other half loves it too.
  22. FIFA 18

    Announcement teaser trailer Most wanted features? I played a bit of the journey on my brothers PS4, quite impressed. An expanded version of that, with a branching storyline, would be good.
  23. WipEout Omega

    Can't wait for this!
  24. Micro Machines World Series

    Please please let this be good. It was one of my absolute fav games as a kid and is one of the types of games that PS4 just does not have. 6/10 and above and they can have all my money. Out at the end of this month!
