I really don’t understand gamers sometimes, but anyway…

Although I haven’t played it seeing as I find the franchise really lame, I remember reading that all the hate was due to Abby being an hard-to-root & unrealistic mess of a character (and that infamously bizarre sex scene…) and because director Neil Druckmann got really political and kept expressing his views on male privilege & minorities ad nauseam, and then unsurprisingly killed off the male protag and pushed Ellie’s sexuality into the forefront. Also, it’s such a detailed, highly destructive and realistic environment yet the drooling all over a synagogue felt really iffy because it outright denied the option for the player to shoot at any of it—Druckmann is Jewish fyi.


I’ve finally tried Devil May Cry 5 and it’s a massive disappointment.

It poo-pooed all over every character, plot thread and overall tone from the previous Capcom entry(ies) in favor of the worst fanfic-tier writing imaginable. Those who’ve rightfully criticized Ninja Theory’s DmC for shifting everything way too much are now eating this one up even though it does mostly the same, praising to high heavens what amounts to a glorified Bloody Palace with disjointed story beats. Nothing adds up:

Why would the human-hating Vergil impregnate a rando? Why is Nero behaving like a psycho gf dumped by Dante? Why is Nero so unrecognizable in every single way, even mocking humans in suffering? Why are Lady & Trish treated way more disrespectfully than ever before? Why is this hobo-Dante so dumb? Why is J. D. Morrison black? Why does the Yamato suddenly do that when stabbings were always a thing? And what in the holy hell was even this:

The potential to an actual good story was there. Capcom could’ve echoed their other franchises by maintaining their until-then leitmotif: Nero could’ve found out that he’s in fact the by-product of DMC4-Agnus’s experiments similar to Breath of Fire 4 Yuna’s alchemical meddling of inhuman genes for power and progress. This would’ve given a proper role to his heartthrob too, Kyrie—instead of being a bland damsel in distress, she would’ve served as Nero’s anchor to humanity, restraining his metastasizing demon genes akin to Street Fighter’s Satsui no Hado.

But nooo, gotta bring back the fan favorite Vergil even if it means turning him into a cartoon villain and ruining other characters in the process.

Finished mafia and I loved it, easily a 8.5/10 for me. Yes it is a little short and the AI is brain-dead but the story is still wonderful and the time period is great.

Im currently trying tales of beseria and also really enjoying that game as well. My favorite jrpg “series” of late on the ps4 is the trails of series. I ran through trails of cold steel 1 through cold steel 3.

Glory of Herakles III -  Silence of the Gods: the Switch port of the feature phone remake of the Super Famicom RPG. With Knuckles. Written by Nojima (of Final Fantasy VII fame). It’s set in a mythical Greek world, and focuses on a group of humans who have suddenly lost their memories, but have become immortals. Meanwhile, the earth is being attacked by monsters, and the party goes out to investigate what’s going on. The story is surprisingly well written, with a fantastic climax where a new light is cast on previous events. Some story beats are familiar nowadays, but were probably quite new back when it was first released on Super Famicom. The feature phone remake greatly simplifies the maps/dungeons and makes the fights/leveling a lot easier so you can go through the game in five or six hours now. Which might sound like a bad decision, but the original SFC game is usually solely praised for the story, while the gameplay itself is considered far less memorable (more like frustrating at times).

The last game that I passed is The last of us 2. The game is cool, but not the ending.

So, my brother-in-law has a PlayStation 4 that’s been collecting dust for a while. He finished all the games he absolutely wanted for it, and he already has a BluRay player for his film collection, so he wasn’t using it *at all*.
Cue handing it to us as a bonus Christmas gift.

Our TV is just one generation too old to be able to install and watch Disney+ but the PS4 solves that problem nicely. So now I not only have a PS4 but we have Disney+ now too! Grin


These last two weeks, I played Marvel’s Spider-Man to 100% completion. Finished the story about a week ago, and spent the rest of the time cleaning up the rest of the map and collecting missing trophies.

I played Batman: Arkham Asylum but never got all that far into it, not being a fan of the gameplay and not being drawn into the story enough to continue.
Spider-Man is a different beast. Swinging through the city is actually fun, the story is really good, and this incarnation of Spider-Man is absolutely brilliant. It’s like they took the best parts of the Maguire, Garfield and Holland versions to mold this one, bringing it closer to the comic books than ever before.
My main gripe is maybe that there’s a bit too much going on in the final act of the game for comfort (resulting in several villains not getting the screentime they deserve), but all in all, this is one fantastic game, and utterly deserving of the hype in my book.
Heck, I went for all the trophies, and got them! It takes a special kind of game to get me *that* invested…

So, now I’ve gone and bought the three DLC packs, The Heist, Turf Wars and Silver Lining, which will keep me busy these coming days. And Spider-Man: Miles Morales is on my wishlist. Would make a good birthday present this summer, after several months on hiatus - don’t want the game to overstay its welcome. Tongue

Marvel’s Spider-Man - 4.5/5
(which is *massive* for a game that’s supposed to be outside my preferred genre)

How long does running through trails 1 through 3 take you? 9 months?

Welcome to the PS4 lovers club! It’s a great piece of kit. I highly recommend Until Dawn. It’s easily one of the best games ever on the system.

You made me wanna play this game now Tongue The last PS4 game I finished was Ghost of Tsushima which I really liked. I wasn’t really feeling it at the beginning but I think it was more due to me having a bit of open world game fatigue than the game’s fault cause I think it in general it hits all the right buttons for me. Thanks to the story, characters, fun sword gameplay and beautiful graphics I ended up enjoying the journey and I appreciated the things it tried to do like not cluttering the map with things to do or following environmental cues to explore or go to objectives.

And so I thought I was done with open world games and PS4 games for a while, but now I’m curious about SpiderMan and Bloodborne, which are the only two major exclusive titles that I haven’t played.

Spider-Man is am award winning multimillion dollar selling game with rave reviews. One thing Sony does right is exclusives. They are usually very, very good.

also agree the spiderman game is brilliant, I even like the little puzzle solving mini games in the lab. def up there with my favorite ps4 games, along with horizon zero dawn (although i still believe the first 4 or so hrs of that game are real bad), persona 5 (one of the best jrpgs in a long time), Cold steel series, jedi fallen order, FF7 remake. There are a lot more games that I really liked too. Ps4 was a great console and a real good console generation a a whole.

ps I never got the dlc packs for spiderman, I heard really mixed reviews on them. Do yall like them.

I started trails of cold steel 1 way before the rest, each game took me about 80 hrs or so to beat over a yr and a half about. It will be a while before I complete the arc with cold steel 4, I burnt myself out a bit. I think my order goes cold steel 1, cold steel 3, than cold steel 2. They all are great games though with really good voice acting

Im halfway through the 2nd island in ghost, but I have not picked up the game in months. Once again the gameplay burnt me out somewhat like an assasins creed game would. It is a great game but I feel they needed more diversity in the gameplay loop. I do plan on beating it at some point though.

as far as spiderman, it is an open world but not to the extent of ghost at least to me, if you skipped the side content which is fun but not super important, you can get through the game pretty quickly.

I went ahead and bought Spider-Man for cheap so I’ll be starting it this week. It all points to something I’ll enjoy in this moment, just good fun with a decent story and characters and an open world that is fun to traverse and hopefully won’t overwhelm me. After this I probably won’t be playing any open worlds for a while Sarcastic

About Ghost yeah I hear you about being burned out. For me it helped that I focused on the main story and only did the character related side quests, which had nice ongoing stories in them so they kept me motivated. I figured that if I did every random side quest it will get repetitive fast. I also explored around for Shrines which are like lite-platforming sections and stuff like haikus which give a nice break in the gameplay loop.

Yeah it was my own fault, I did every piece of content on the first island including freeing all the settlements, all the haikus and all the platforming bits.I did everything, i hundred percented it on the first island. After that I was like hmmm I don’t want to do this again LOL
