PlayStation VR is beginning to feel a bit like the Vita

Best gaming purchase for many years, Every genre already covered.
Horror = RE7
Shooter = Farpoint
RPG = Skyrim
Platformer = Moss
Racer = Wipeout
Zombie fix = Arizona Sunshine.

It's got too the point where the visuals are that good in Farpoint, Me and a friend did it co-op and it has made games like Farcry 5 look a major stepback, As you're not there in person like VR gives.

Great article, VR has in some way ruined normal gaming on a tv, As VR makes it feel a huge stepback going back to TV gaming. RE7 proves that, Skyrim proves that. Farpoint is top tier shooting and makes Halo/Destiny feel ancient considering you can actually see you're co-op partner in VR.

But saying that all my genres was covered already..

horror..RE7
Sci-fi...Farpoint
Zombie fix...Arizona
Medieval fantasy....Skyrim

It's why i havent bought a game yet this year, None grab me like those games did. We need more from big devs.

Pro clubs is shocking, The scripting seems way overboard this time. The catch-up of the defenders are insane against a 90 pace/acceleration forward.
Barely any teams have been made in comparison to 17.
Everyone just runs the byline and crosses it in still
No rain?
No handballs?
No new camera perspective.

Cant speak for any of the other modes.

In this day and age, Why do we still only have 2 football games to choose from.

Sony should bring back this is football.

After playing Farpoint in VR, Recently playing and completing Arizona sunshine in VR with a friend, Both with the aim, We really feel it's such a backstep now playing these shooters traditionally. Destiny 2 is great graphically and feels good to play, But feels no different than Halo 3 way back when.

Nothing feels new in these games anymore, They are just more of the same.

Honestly ME3 was the beginning of the end for me with this series, Way too many issues with that game regardless of metacritic score.

But like everyone else, Love for the series meant i bought MEA hoping things have improved etc, Turns out it was actually worse the ME3.

Shocking how this series panned out, ME1/2 are right up there with fave games of all time.

Ahh well, Got that Dragons Dogma remake coming this year for PS4.

What's Phil Harrison up to these days?

OtisBDriftwood

11 months ago

@captain-T-dawg Comes a point in gaming as you get older, Where these great games of today( and rightly so great) reach a point of nothing new. Graphics themselves have reached a ceiling and look superb, But 4K,HDR still don't put you in there like VR does. After experiencing R7 in VR, It doesn't matter what resolution you run it at on a TV, It will never be as good and immersive as it is in VR.

And what people forget is, PSVR hasn't even been out 1 whole year yet, And look at what games we are getting already.

I'm all in with VR, PSVR has transformed gaming for me, Made it interesting and more importantly fun and immersive so i disagree and agree with phil.

The setup itself can be annoying with the breakout box, Wires, Tracking etc, And tht will surely improve over time. R7 & Farpoint prove that when VR works, It's unmatchable when it comes to immersion.

And thats just PSVR, I can only imagine how great the Vive and Occulus must be.

And yet part of the reason why i don't venture this site much is EG disdain for VR, Maybe they just love playing yearly iteration games in 4K or something.

Give me and my friends a Pro clubs mode that Fifa offers then we'll happily switch to PES, Also it's annoying that you can use the player camera perspective offline but it's not an option online, I only like that way to play as you feel on the pitch libero grande style.

Kits are easy to do so thats not a problem.

EA says no, your FIFA matches aren't rigged

OtisBDriftwood

11 months ago

Rubber banding is rife in Pro clubs, Many of us have used the glitch to get all traits so our forwards are 94-95 overall with 99 pace, strength etc,

Yet a div 3 80 RATED CPU defender can still run side by side with you on a through ball, Block shots even though he wasnt near you, And ping the ball around like Maldini.

The game is scripted beyond belief, We have all said it during matches and felt it, Especially the input lag with the pad, Or your player choosing to shoot with the wrong foot for no reason whatsoever.

But yet until PES has a pro clubs mode, We'll still stick too it.

What crack you been smoking, Typical journalist mindset, Only looking for click baiting wars or FF7R type announcements.

Farpoint itself is amazing in VR, You along with that crowd are the jaded gamers mate.

Ubisofts conference was nothing but CGI trailers, Sony shows gameplay.

Remember those brown shooters we were accustomed too, Yeah let's go back to those days.

Get a grip people, VR works and is fantastic, And Sony has the games we all want to play.

Early impressions of FIFA 18

OtisBDriftwood

12 months ago

Pro clubs only mode here, What have they done to that mode? And you say it's weightier but all they do is revert it back a couple of years, Meaning it's like Fifa 16..... And when Fifa 17 came out people said it was much faster, So Fifa 19 will be like 17 and feel faster.

Rinse & Repeat.

Graphics means nothing when most people play with the default side to side camera where you don't even see the stadiums apart from cut scenes.

Same old shite but until PES gets their version of Pro clubs then i'll still get it.

But this gen with the primary account trick i do with my brother, Then we are 100% digital due to getting all games we want half price and only needing 1 sub for us both.

I'll only ever go back physical if the loophole we use doesnt work anymore.

Nioh's co-op has changed since the beta, much to fans' chagrin

OtisBDriftwood

1 year ago

@rubberducko It was such a bad decision to change it from the beta.

Beta = Both doing the yokai realm with companion together blind

Full game = 1 has to do the mission first

Twilight mission = 1 does the level first, Then help his friend out on the same level, Then both have to do it if they wanna do the twilght through the tori gate

So that 1 person has to do the same mission 3 times, Just to feel like it was in the beta.
0 0

OtisBDriftwood

1 year ago

@Fourfoldroot Yeah if you have already done the mission, Then your friend can summon you in to help him out.

You just both can't do the mission blindly like the Beta's allowed.

But only 1 of you needs to have done the mission already, Then he can summon you from the shrine aslong as he has an ochuku cup to offer.

OtisBDriftwood

1 year ago

@Fourfoldroot Basically the logic is, You cant blind run through the mission with a friend, But feel free to summon someone in who's already cheesed the area and much higher level.

1 friend has to have had the mission done first, Even then you can't yokai realm with a companion as your friend would also needed to have done the mission.

So you'll do the mission, Help your friend do his, then both do the same mission from the tori gate lol.. 3 times doing the same mission

Whereas in the 3 beta's you both could do the mission once each and progress

On Sony's own website the 2nd feature for the game is telling you to team up with friends.

Now the devs come out and say it's not meant to be played that way, After allowing people to play that way leading up too the game.

OtisBDriftwood

@riceNpea Yes people are fully aware what BETA means, No need to be so condescending in the tone. What's aggrieved people is the fact it was a feature in all of the versions, Even up until after the game went gold along with the trial demo 3 weeks ago.

I am personally fine with it, I'll slog through regardless, But my friend who wanted to coop it blind has already gave up on it.

It's not even about challenge, The EULA or any of that, It's the annoyance how it had to be known after the games release.

They clearly could have said what changes were made within the last few weeks.
4 1

OtisBDriftwood

1 year ago

@riceNpea Well i'm not sure i would label it entitlement, It was a feature for 3 versions prior too the full release, One of those versions was 3 weeks ago so people bought it fully expecting a major coop mode to be intact on release, Regardless of the EULA.This just seemed swiped out at the last minute, As they have only come out and said it made it easy, Of which it didn't.

Like you say it probably wasn't intentional, But they should have been clearer about the changes too the final release.

People have a right to call out these decisions though, Noone wants to live in a totalitarian society, Where we just conform and be told whats what. It probably won't lead to nothing, But it's not entitlement to want the version you played 3 times prior.

OtisBDriftwood

1 year ago

@riceNpea The game had already gone gold by the time the trial was released, 3 versions had the feature, The final version didn't. It's not illegal, But it feels incredibly shady and alot of people have called them out on it.

They could have handled it way better but chose not too, To get the initial sales and deal with it afterwards, Hence the rubbish excuse about being easy.
6 6

OtisBDriftwood

1 year ago

3 pre-release demo's of the game had the feature, The last chance trial was 3 weeks ago with the feature. So alot of people bought the game based on that version, Since nothing was said between then and the final release about the change. It took until people bought the game to realise the change. It's shady at best. Not to mention you can still summon someone in who's cleared the area to wipe out the boss.

At least doing it the tori gate way with you're friend you both was at the same level, Didn't have check points, And was sent back to the start if you both died.

@FMV-GAMER " There's nothing special about PS4 Pro at all and a 550 PC will easily outperform it without all the silly hidden costs of online fees and more expensive games "

You aren't exactly right regarding online fee's and more expensive games.

On console, One could simply use the primary account share like i do with my brother, Meaning you get 2 for the price of 1 and only needing 1 sub. So we get all games we want for half price and only need one sub to ps+
