@  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.

Check out this digital foundry vid on the game. This is a remake with brand new assets and better gameplay controls. PS4 pro has a 1080p mode at a locked 60 fps. The environments have never looked this good and atmospheric. I will be getting this day 1.

I have been playing it. It feels like a brand new game. I was so spoilt by the controls of these modern games and I realised how precise you have to be in this game. You can't just spam the climbing, and you have to put some thought into it. New players who grew up with modern games where the climbing was easy may be put off by it. The graphics are amazing! The story can be emotional as well like the last guardian at the end. This game feels like a well put together remake that is of quality and atmosphere even though the world comprised of natural environments, you and the various colossus. Highly recommend it for those who already played the ps2 original and strongly recommend it for new players to experience this unique game.

I have been playing this on the PS4 Pro on a 4K/HDR display and it is truly gorgeous. This game does so much with so little. Best remake ever!

Sales tower over its PS2 launch.

Shadow of the Colossus' PlayStation 4 remake has topped the UK charts with sales that dwarf those of the game's original release.
The number of physical PS4 copies sold was 73 per cent up on the game's original PlayStation 2 release all the way back in February 2006.

That figure does not include any download copies of the game, either - something which UK numbers company Chart-Track still doesn't, well, track.

One other new title entered the chart: the Switch version of Dragon Quest Builders, which arrived in 31st place.
The rest of the UK top 10 was largely unchanged - here's the full list:
  • Shadow of the Colossus
  • EA Sports UFC 3
  • Monster Hunter: World
  • FIFA 18
  • Grand Theft Auto 5
  • Call of Duty: WW2
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  • Super Mario Odyssey
  • Assassin's Creed Origins
  • The Evil Within 2
Oli reported being thoroughly impressed in Eurogamer's Shadow of the Colossus review, calling the game "a melancholy masterpiece" and a "faithful and breathtakingly beautiful remake".

There are plenty of reasons to go pro, here are a handful more:

Out Now:
Gran Turismo Sport
Horizon Zero Dawn
Ratchet and Clank
Wipeout Omega Collection
The Last of Us Remastered
Uncharted 4
Uncharted The Lost Legacy

Coming Soon:
The Last of Us 2
Ghost of Tsushima
God of War
Days Gone
Death Stranding
Spiderman
Nino Kuni 2
Detroit

The ones out now I can confirm are superb. And that is just off the top of my head.

Slightly aside, Id really love to see ICO get the same love as SotC. ICO is my favourite of the games in Fumito Uedas loosely connected trilogy.
