@  d2_s : (13 January 2018 - 04:41 AM) Belated Happy New Year HDTVArcaders!
@  d2_s : (13 January 2018 - 04:48 AM) @B Whether the Switch! is worth it depends on how into Portable gaming you are and how important Nintendo’s IPs are to you IMHO. As novel as it is to have games like Doom or Skyrim on a handheld device, for someone like me-who rarely plays portable-it’s not worth it when those games are better on other platforms. I’d personally wait until the library is more fleshed out and you can get a better price. Only reason I got mine somearly was for Zedla.
@  ermac666 : (27 January 2018 - 11:33 PM) Shadow of the  Colossus remake looks stunning. It's like a brand new game! Just saw the digital foundry ps4 pro first look. I was like, "wow!!!!!". I wasn't expecting it to look that good and different.
@  ermac666 : (27 January 2018 - 11:33 PM) Go check it out guys
@  Brandino : (29 January 2018 - 12:19 AM) What would be awesome is a sequel to SOC... complete with levels and a whole lot more then only the big boss fights.
@  kyle_5_16 : (29 January 2018 - 03:23 PM) that does look pretty legit
@  kyle_5_16 : (29 January 2018 - 03:24 PM) Has anyone been playing the Sea of Thieves beta?
@  TonyDP : (29 January 2018 - 05:36 PM) I've been playing Sea of Thieves. It's fun and shows promise but I think they need more for the final product. I've done a few solo adventures but the game is most fun with 4 players.
@  kyle_5_16 : (29 January 2018 - 05:52 PM) Yeah, I played a couple hours duo with my brother, then another 4-6 as a full 4 man team. The full crew is more fun for sure. I agree the beta is light on content, a lot of just go dig up a chest quests so far, they need a lot more than that for the final game but my fingers are crossed. I'm also hoping for some sort of missions that would require cooperation with other crews, like having to go take down an NPC ship that is difficult alone or something. I dunno, I guess we'll see. So far the other crews have just been either attacking on site or running away, a reason to cooperate would be cool.
@  colonel_j2020 : (29 January 2018 - 06:26 PM) I too have played some of sea of theives beta.  For some reason I can't connect to a group game. No error messages or windows firewall stuff pops up.  I think it would be good with a group of friends though.  I feel they will need to add more content as Tony and Kyle suggested to keep it fresh.
@  d2_s : (30 January 2018 - 07:07 AM) The best thung about Sea of Thieves (all all MS 1st party games for that matter) is that I get it day one with my Gamepass subscription. Don’t think I would have bought it otherwise, seems a but niche to me.
@  d2_s : (30 January 2018 - 07:08 AM) Fat thumbs + iPad once again make me look like an illiterate bastard.
@  TonyDP : (30 January 2018 - 08:06 AM) I'm debating cancelling my pre-order and going the Gamepass route as well. Not wild about another monthly subscription but if I just get 2 or 3 games a year it will pretty much pay for itself.
@  Brandino : (30 January 2018 - 08:17 PM) I would think that randomly generated islands/caves/castles or whatever in Sea Of Thieves would make the game much more enticing.   I can't imagine sailing and merely attacking a few skeletons as fun.  The sailing around in Wind Waker was the worst part of that game... the interesting islands is what made it fun.
@  TonyDP : (31 January 2018 - 06:01 PM) The sailing mechanics are well done. You need to use the map and compass to figure out where to go and manage the length and direction of the sails; I found it one of the coolest parts of the beta quite honestly.
@  d2_s : (02 February 2018 - 03:39 AM) @Tony I did just that. Cancelled my preorder and went the gamepass route.
@  kyle_5_16 : (05 February 2018 - 05:14 PM) considering all first party titles are going gamepass now I think that makes it a pretty decent deal for sure.
@  colonel_j2020 : (09 February 2018 - 08:24 PM) I have a feeling I will use gamepass to play Sea of Thieves.  Paying for that for a month seems a good way to play games like that.
@  Brandino : (17 February 2018 - 02:34 AM) I bought a Switch.... very slick piece of hardware and easy to bring to work to play multiplayer mario kart
@  d2_s : (17 February 2018 - 11:54 PM) The switch is awesome. I just need Nintendo to port over all my favourite WiiU games so I can be rid of it.

Game will be released on 17 Oct. The beta/demo is up for download on psn store. It's a big download at 43 GB. I haven't played a GT game in a long ass time, and this is the first current gen GT game that shows what the ps4/pro is capable of. PS4 pro at 1080p mode is the best way to experience the game if you care about a solid frame rate and the return 60 fps replays, which looks amazing. I know that replays aren't gameplay releated, but on GT games they always look amazing. Most racing sims have 30 fps replays, so this is a refreshing change and a blast from the past of sorts where the ps2 GT games have 60 fps replays. PS3 GT games never had 60 fps replays as well as the forza games. It's a nice touch. 4K mode only has 30 fps replays though. Same with base ps4. I feel that ps4 pro at 1080p gives the best overall experience. I like the sense of speed when you use a super fast car. You can hear the wind effects and the screen shakes when you go really fast. You have to be online to play it. Just a heads up. Not an issue as my console is always connected. Just my first impressions.

This is supposed to have a VR mode; kind of limited as it will only be one-on-one and it's unclear how many cars or tracks will be supported in VR. That is the only thing that will get me to look at this as the Forza series have filled my racing need ever since the PS3/360 days.

This link has some info on the VR mode. Apparently, the entire game is way too taxing on the ps4/pro hardware to be played in VR, so they had to make compromises, and they don't seem keen on drastically reducing the visuals like other games such as drive club for VR.

I remember reading that a while ago; based on the comments of the developers I get the feeling VR was forced on them rather than being something they wanted to do on their own. I do think they're a little too in love with their rendering engine; I would have preferred a few more cars even at the expense of the visuals being scaled back somewhat. Driveclub VR showed me that in the heat of competition you usually don't have time to notice the visual downgrade too much, and that was a day one game.

Unfortunately, VR support does not appear to be in the demo, which I could not get to work as it was never able to connect to the GT servers, so I'll be waiting a bit for some feedback on whether the VR mode is worthwhile.

I’ll test out the VR mode and give impressions when i get around to it. It’s supposed to be alot prettier than driveclub vr and feel alot better in the cockpit, but 1v1 only seems rather limited and probably the reason why it’s a technically better experience.

GT sports will be getting more updates in the next 2 months, adding more content such as the career mode like past games(GT League), more cars and easing off its online requirements that people complained about. This would make it feel more of a proper sequel as it is not called GT7.

I am almost done with the mission mode. Mission mode has some endurance races that I have to clear. I do enjoy the game as it looks and plays good.

I’m really looking forward to these updates. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by this game, I thought I wasn’t going to like it -being online focused - but I’ve ended up playing it more than any other racer in a long while. The racing and handling is absolutely spot on and it doesn’t hurt that it’s absolutely gorgeous. The livery editor combined with the photo mode is next level stuff. Best HDR I’ve seen in a game yet.
