@  d2_s : (19 June 2017 - 10:16 PM) I'm in agreement with you Tony and I would hazzard a guess that Sony's own exclusives will be impressive enough that people wont be wishing they were on XB1X much like the X1's exclusives were technically as good as anything else.
@  ermac666 : (20 June 2017 - 06:37 AM) I am quite impressed with the ps4 exclusives like days gone where there are tons of zombies on screen, and the game still maintains the frame rate and graphical fidelity. It is also no typical shooter where you endlessly just shoot down zombies. You have to utilise the environments and stealth to play. Story looks to be good as well.
@  Brandino : (30 June 2017 - 01:36 AM) The SNES classic ....  only 20 somewhat games is a bit of a disappointment.   The urge to buy a raspberry pi with a snes case is much higher then dropping 100 on something with corded controllers and 20 games
@  SpaceInsomniac : (09 July 2017 - 04:44 AM) So Kyle / Direwolf: I just recently picked up Rocket League again after not playing since the first month or so.  Still great fun, but I was wondering if you could suggest any You Tube tutorials or anything for new-ish players.  Anything come to mind?
@  kyle_5_16 : (19 July 2017 - 10:56 AM) Honestly I don't really know of any tutorials online, I never really watched any, just played a LOT
@  kyle_5_16 : (19 July 2017 - 10:56 AM) The training in that game is great for building up your mechanics though
@  kyle_5_16 : (19 July 2017 - 10:57 AM) and people make and share all sorts of custom training scenarios too
@  kyle_5_16 : (19 July 2017 - 10:57 AM) after that it is learning the basics or teamplay (if you aren't doing solos) and overall team rotation, which I do know there are tutorials on, i'll see if I can find them

@  SpaceInsomniac : (20 July 2017 - 07:33 AM) Cool.  Thanks for the advice!
@  Brandino : (05 August 2017 - 02:26 AM) I've been playing the new Doom on PC..... that game is so bad ass and so much fun.  I wish more FPS would go back to the classic roots...
@  TonyDP : (05 August 2017 - 08:15 PM) I beat the new Doom on my PS4 a few weeks back; really fun game. Once you beat it, make sure to watch the credits - they're actually one of the best cinematics I've seen and really kick ass (you'll know what I mean when you check them out).
@  Brandino : (05 August 2017 - 10:33 PM) I've been taking my sweet time exploring each level for the secrets ,   it's a fun throw back which is nice for a change.
@  ermac666 : (08 August 2017 - 08:37 PM) Hellblade Sensua's Sacrifice on ps4 is an interesting game you guys should check out. I played for 2 hrs, and I am liking what I see!
@  ermac666 : (08 August 2017 - 08:39 PM) ps4 pro is 60 fps for hellblade, and ps4 frame rate is unlocked.
@  d2_s : (12 August 2017 - 04:09 AM) I completed my 1st playthrough of hellblade earlier today. PS4 pro suports both a 60hz mode and a high res 30fps mode. The game is a flawed masterpiece IMO. Gorgeous visuals and excellent overall story and presentation let down by a sometimes painful combat system. The combat itself is not bad, but the targeting system is complete rubbish and some of the combat scenarios plain stink - i wont spoil anything. I'd describe the combat as being like Ryse Son of Rome minus the button prompts and dismemberment. Definately worth a look for the price.
@  d2_s : (12 August 2017 - 04:10 AM) The game gets more visually stunning as one progresses and is up there with the prettier games this gen. Ninja Theory really outdid themselves.
@  Brandino : (17 August 2017 - 12:06 AM) Crackdown delayed yet again...
@  d2_s : (17 August 2017 - 08:15 AM) bummer
@  d2_s : (17 August 2017 - 09:46 AM) Ha I was going through my psn download list and noticed someone purchased 42 movies on my account last september.

New Sonic game is finally coming! This looks to be a followup to sonic generations where you play as both classic and modern sonic. A lot of us would be more comfortable with classic sonic's pace, but modern sonic is so much fun if you memorize the levels and could boost with no fear of falling off. I can't wait!

The classic Sonic screens look pretty cool, and the modern sonic screens occasionally give a great sense of speed which is a rare feat, (but I could do without the extreme blurring/tunnel vision when it happens). Looks like a winner.
Failure is not important. How you overcome it is.

It doesn't look bad at all and I'm glad it's more like Sonic generations - a game I enjoyed. I'll likely pick this one up when the price drops. I'm more interested in that other Sonic game - I've forgotten the name - that's just around the corner. Just give me a well executed side scrolling platform game with the verticality of the originals and I'll be happy.

This is just a vid to show you guys how modern sonic plays in the older game, sonic generations. Memorizing the levels and game mechanics could make your gameplay look like this. It's a sight to behold, but a pain to master. Not easy...

I've played a lot of Sonic games over the years; never finished even one of them. They were all fun to varying degrees but the gameplay ultimately would be too demanding for me to see any of them thru to the end. I think the degree of difficulty has really hurt the games' popularity; I look at videos like this and say to myself "pretty, but I'd never play that".

I get what you mean. Not an easy game to master if you want to boost and do crazy things like that. Requires a lot of practice, stage awareness, good memory, fast reflexes and good timing to ace these stages in style. You will need to spend a lot of time doing that. You could also play it the traditional way, but these games are meant to be played fast paced. Classic sonic would suit most of us like I mentioned. I would like to see how they would make modern sonic accessible while retaining the insane speed and challenge. The older, slower paced sonic adventure games were easier to play, but they too require a level of mastery to really take advantage of the stages. Sega will need to find the right balance in their new game.
