Bought the Definitive Edition of Sleeping Dogs on special at Mighty Ape today. I don't often pick up older games, but I have nothing on the watchlist until Uncharted 4, and I'm really only playing Uncharted 2 and 3 until then, with maybe some Halo 5 and Forza 5..

Yeah, still good the second time around. Great game. The dlc included isn't too bad either

Finished Rise of the Tomb Raider, so for you guys waiting for the PS4 version... expect more of the same (especially visually if you played TR on PS4, not PS3) .. a few more gadgets and tweaks as you'd expect, and some pretty epic cinematic set-pieces... otherwise it's much the same as the "original"

 

Probably the biggest negative to me is the open-worldness, especially with my playstyle detracts from the narrative. I've spent that much time exploring the 3 main hubs that I can't actually remember the early stages of the game that well, lol.. Uncharted, even with taking time to look for the treasures is a lot more linearly narrative experience, although that might change a little with Uncharted 4 with the first demo shown looking like a very large and open level.

I started Sunset Overdrive, but with other games and things going on, haven't really done past the tutorial. Yes it does look good in a Ratchet meets inFamous way.. Exclusives for me would be Forza. I haven't really felt it with Gran Turismo since GT3, and Driveclub is pretty mediocre compared to Forza 5 and 6.. and the other one would be the Gears of War remaster and no doubt the upcoming new Gears of War game.

Downloading Uncharted Collection demo..... just sayin.. ;)

Ah ok, nice. I've seen a few playing it, might as well grab it myself. I expect to be a little rusty too ;-)

Mortal Kombat must be quite popular. After reading some good previews and reviews I decided at the last minute to order it from MA... they were awaiting stock (the first load must have sold out), and now they are sold out on PS4 until the middle of May..

Claptrap friends rejoice.... Borderlands ports coming to PS4 with cross save and a very expensive ultra collector edition... :D

even if you are prepared to spend the coin on Claptrap, I think he's going to be hard to get your hands on.... multiple copies pre selling at exorberant prices ex Gamestop on ebay..

Yeah, It does look good. Animation is incredible. I dunno, maybe thisll be my first uncharted game. I am still waiting for that uncharted Kart racer though :P

News for our aussie friends.... budget store 'The Warehouse' is pulling all R18 game and movie content from the shelves... in a stand said to be largely because of the first-person view 'realism' in GTAV.... you fought to get R18, and here we are our retailers and parents still don't understand what it means...

Yeah, if Im having a bad day playing MK i just have to go rip out a few skulls to make me feel better.

kiwiatlarge

It's strange that I have a hankering to get GTAV on PS4... if I did, it would make 2014 eerily close to 2013 with Tomb Raider and The Last of Us... lol

got my Sony Xperia Compact Z3 via courier yesterday... (still need to get the right sim for it).. this is the most I've spent on a cellphone in almost 20 years by far... so far I'm really happy with it.

 

My thoughts on the remote play is, it's too small to be practical (the tablet Z3 may be a better option)... but for the price, if I was buying an object primarily for remote play (ignoring games on the device) I'd still go for the Vita...

 

But it's pretty cool knowing that I can do more than just use it as a second screen, like the PS app on other devices, like my ipad mini...

oh... and you can pair a ps4 remote, which is pretty cool... but probably only any practical use if you wait for the tablet version, and get the caddy for it..

Nice, enjoy Kiwi. I am looking at picking up the Samsung Note 4 when it releases!

Anyone played the recent Lego offerings?... I'm contemplating picking either Marvel or Movie up on PS4, but solely remote playing it on Vita at home... effectively giving me something simple for the Vita without dropping back to the watered down Vita versions

I want to grab the Lego Marvel game to do some co-op with my bro. Looked fun.

I'm going to order them both.... nzgameshop have them on special at the moment.. I haven't had a TV console lego game since Star Wars Complete Saga, as I prefer to play these games by hand while watching telly... With the PS4 versions I can do it either way, best of both worlds.. :)

Early happy Vita birthday to my mrs... Such has her monopolizing of the TV on my weekends off playing FFX HD on the PS3, I've gone out and bought her the LBP Vita bundle and FFX on Vita..

 

Now we can both handheld our FF to our heart's content... and it could be good for Borderlands 2 later down the track..

Was kinda disappointed to hear that Borddrlands 2 vita is only 2 player co-op, but it would work well for playing with the missus.

Finally starting to get into the swing of things with NFS:Rivals..... one thing I'm finding, like Hot Pursuit, is, Cop career just seems so much more fun, and easier than Racer...

the only cop events I'm good at is the rapid response :P and now that I have all the racer cars ALL the racer events are easy for me :P

Rapid Response seems easier than past time trial modes in NFS and Burnout... I know with the PS2 Burnouts I just couldn't gold them... my personal Pursuit style is to have 1 long range and 1 close range attack..

yeh I just can't take down racers fast enough, I don't have time to wait for my tech to recharge, but if I really go in to hit them hard in person it slows me down too much and then I just can't catch up again in time, racing is just easier, I just run Turbo & Jammer and off I go.

kiwiatlarge

ordered NFS Rivals from nzgameshop with a 10% discount for PS4.... wanted to get this on day 1, but didn't really want to pay full price for a cross-gen/format game

kiwiatlarge

ahh... Polyphony Digital.. you sure know how to do big game updates...

So worthwhile then? I've heard whilst it's good they haven't really changed much since 5.

kiwiatlarge
  • Dec 23, 2013, 4:36:14 AM

hasn't really changed much at all... a more 'compact' experience... no rpg style ranking... no b-spec... the long term appeal in terms of fresh content comes probably from the seasonal events and various updated special events..
