I mean overrated by goons. Not saying it is a bad game, but it's definitely not for everyone, or even most people. It should be put in a category of games called "games to play if you hate yourself." A lot of goons hate themselves.

If you like action games then Bloodborne is a must, it's as simple as that.

the number of people that have the trophy for beating the first boss of literally any game is really depressingly. this is not a difficulty thing that is an exclusive of games like dark souls; people just don't beat most of the games they buy on average

Bloodborne is the only game I can come up with when thinking of a greatest of the generation, but it is seriously only something for those who think they can stomach a better Souls game only, and one that's got a challenge in it. The trophy stats for having defeated either of the bosses that can be encountered as ones first are tiny. Games journalists making more money than the average teacher have spent 4-7 hours throwing their bodies at bosses and gone nowhere.
I actually remember being really impressed by the numbers on some of the later bosses. Ebrietas -- late in the game, very hard and totally optional -- had like 25% complete, which I thought was pretty high considering.

Only the other Team Ico games, really.

It's not that long but encourages you to stop and smell the roses, there are speed achievements for 30, 15, and 5 hour clears.

I took a leisurely and exploratory pace and got the 15 hour achievement so easily less than that. It's a great and beautiful game.

It should take 10-12 hours. I'd say it is most comparable to Ico but TLG is really its own thing. If they could make a patch that fixed the camera/controls it would be the best game of this generation.

tlg took me 9 hours but i could have done it in 7 if i knew about 1 finnicky puzzle ahead of time.

theres a point where you are in water and trico is looking through a hole in the cieling at you.

you can not advance until you do the puzzle in the far corner of the room instead of in the obvious spot right under him because he is programmed to drop a chunk of the ceiling before helping you but you have no way to know this until you get it right.

LEMME SHOW YOU SOMETHING!!!

Since people want Smart TV talk, how is the input lag on the KS8000 when using HDR? Seems a lot of TVs introduce a lot since they require you to be in a movie setting rather than game setting. Was hoping to wait for the OLED's to drop to the $1500 range in a few years, but just bought a house and the 40" I have for the basement is going to be too small. May go for a 65" KS8000 or the like (though would prefer something in the 70" range).

Would like to get the new tv sooner and upgrade to a PS4 Pro when FF7 remake comes out (hoping for a special edition FF7 PS4 Pro).


edit: Also, i haven't play Bloodborne yet because I wasn't a fan of Dark Souls, but will give it a shot. UC4 is the most "must play" game I have played on the PS4 so far since most of the other games I have enjoyed have been on PC and/or XB1 as well (DQ Builders, DQ Heroes, FF15, GTA5, etc.). UC4 is definitely not overrated.

Haha, yeah, that took me a few. Her tail glitched out and got caught on scenery.

The other one I got caught on was where Trico claws at a switchbox and the solution is to use a specific voice command to encourage her to claw at the switchbox harder.




Game was amazing though. Every time that Trico swooped in to kill statue dudes and that awesome music played

ks8000 is best in class on lag. they patched the firm ware a few months ago to bring hdr in line with sdr so there's only a few ms of difference now, whereas earlier this year there was 10-15ms added.

some tvs are so bad with it though that you are right to be cautious. i've seen reviews showing like 70-100ms of lag introduced by hdr

If you wanna game on an OLED and care about input lag I'd wait a year or two

The KS800 is just the best bang for your buck by far. There's better options i assume but probably at a 75% price increase

yeah the only good oleds are by lg and sony and they are up there

also oled has issues with gaming in lag and also some models have a weird form of burn in that's not actually a big deal since its temporary but can get annoying if you have a hud on screen all the time when you game and then switch to watching something else i think tv makers care about gaming last in a developing technology. Go LED. just avoid LCD 4k screens because they can no actually display the hdr they claim to have. the ks8000 probably isn't the best hdr experience but god drat its impressive. TLG looks so loving good with it.

There are a LOT of 1 star reviews on Amazon. 15% or so which is very high for a "best" item. Apparently there is a common problem where the bezel and the screen separate due to heat issues.

I got like 5 new attempts in the span of 2 minutes, I assume whoever hacked my account and set a different PS4 as the main device then sold that PS4 so I almost feel bad for whoever bought it, but people need to learn that if something is too good to be true, it's probably too good to be true.

I haven't actually talked to customer service about it yet because I discovered the hack the day after christmas and I tried to call and realized they were dealing with a billion calls from people who couldn't figure out how to set up the VR system.

I have no problem doing well in FPSes etc with the KS8000 in regular, non-game mode. I dunno why you'd buy a fancy new tv and then make it look like poo poo by turning on game mode.

I agree with the "Bloodborne is good for people who hate themselves" sentiment.
