Iíve beaten a handful of them, theyíre compelling and evocative and challenging as gently caress. But constantly championing them as the best games ever released always puzzled me.

Not sure how Opinions being subjective puzzles you? A lot of people have Nintendo ips in their greatest of all time but I don't rate any of them highly except Fire Emblem series.

Fromsoft games are some of my favorite games but I can completely see why someone would not like any of their games(since they are very similar).


Aidan_702 posted:

From Software has the cache to literally saying NOTHING about the game except for one trailer that doesn't explain anything. That is the only official/believable thing and that's how excited people are for it.

Cyberpunk on the other hand had years and years of constant insane promises and pre-rendered video that everyone was led to believe was real and on PC/last gen hardware.

Of course there is always a chance Elden Ring will be disappointing, but it won't be on hype or false promises. Plus also they made fucken bloodborne dark souls demons souls and sekiro


Ya honestly if this game is a buggy mess or it's complete shight. It isn't really Fromsoft or Bandai Namco's fault in terms of marketing. They have in fact not marketed it at all.

The absolute best PS5 showcase of haptics, trigger effects, and 3D sound all in one beautiful 4k/60/rtx package right now is definitely Returnal.

Really interested in the haptics, finally managed to get a ps5, a friend somehow got too and I snagged one off him.

Btw do any of the backward compat games have haptics? I'll probably some ps4 exclusives games I had that I didn't get to play yet.

No special haptic support for back compat games. It emulates the DS4's rumble but it doesn't feel as good. They did at least improve it with a patch recently.

Ya I might just get Demon Souls, I just don't feel like there is anything else, obviously Spiderman and Returnal but my backlog is huge so that can wait.

Btw is there a list of fps boost games? I am gonna try finish God Of War and Spiderman 1 on ps5 instead.

It looks way dumber sideways imo but no difference.
Its actually safer standing up tho cause the base is screwed in vs sideways where it can slip out of the base if someone tries to move it but thats probably not something to worry about

Wow you are right as I moved the hdmi to connect it was moved easily. Unfortunately I don't have space for a vertical set up with how my table is.

I got PS+ finally to try out a few games, installed God Of War which I had from ps4, probably gonna have time later to try this out. Is there way to see which ps4 games have fps increased in the store?

So I played bit of Astro's playroom, good little game. Was going to get into my first full ps5 game, I was wondering if things like Demon Souls have gone on sale yet? I might just wait and play backward compat games instead.

Also I just saw some news that Druckmann said they might do a tlou3 set after events of 2 and people were disappointed. Am I missing something? I love new ips but you can innovate in sequels as well. Tlou2 gameplay is such an improvement over 1 and they even added semi open areas. AS long as the quality of the product is as good tlou2 or uncharted 4, I don't mind if we get more of that as long as there more cool stories to tell and they innovate.

Anyone has the Pulse 3D headset? Was wondering if it's any good, the price seems cheap for what they are advertising. I will probably just buy it since I had negative experience with third party stuff on consoles in the past but wanted to know if anyone had experience with it.

To answer both of these: the 3D audio stuff is all done system-side, so any decent pair of headphones can do it. The Pulse headset is very good, probably worth it for the price, but definitely not the best quality headphones Iíve owned (but they cost way more). PS5ís Tempest 3D audio is definitely noticeable in games that use it - Returnal especially you hear the ďdirectionĒ of sounds SO well. Orbs hitting the wall behind me made me jump more than a few times.

Basically I would say itís worth it if you donít already have a good pair of headphones (or headset if you plan on using the mic), or you want one thatís specifically for your PS5.

I own a pair of good Bose headset but it only works wired with PS4/PS5. I am guessing this is noise canceling too, I just ordered of ebgames not sure when they will deliver but it showed it was in stock. Amazon is not showing any in stock.

Btw PS5 game sale is starting next Wednesday. https://blog.playstation.com/2021/05/18/days-of-play-2021-activities-start-today-with-playstation-player-celebration-sale-kicks-off-may-26/

Tlou2 is amazing but replaying it is akin to rewatching Requiem for a dream or Manchester at Sea. Nah I don't need that depressive poo poo in my life.

Btw playing Until Dawn from ps+ collection, not sure if they enhanced anything for PS5 but this game looks really crisp and also it's been really good. Horror with mix of psychological thriller elements is my jam.

FF7R is absolutely an action game, and primarily so. It's combat design is so thoroughly tuned around action game 'credentials' that when you play it on hard mode it cuts all the chaff away and the design shows its true intentions. Tim Rogers went into this a lot already so I wont bloviate.

https://mobile.twitter.com/sunhilegend/status/1251528375648366593

Ya I think when you get to hard mode you basically to manage aggro perfectly and optmize combos/dmg. The combat flows really well even though it's sort of turn based.

Wtf happened to granblue fantasy relink

Basically a way too ambitious first title for a completely new studio? For the last 3-4 years the only thing that looks complete is the combat which Platinum worked on super early.

Talking off Platinum I hope we see Babylon's Fall at e3. The combat looked fun the last time they showed it but there was no Platinum charm and it looked like a tech demo.

Kiwami 2 is so much better than Kiwami 1 so you're in for a good time.

Ya Yakuza 0 to Kiwami 1 was so freaking disappointing, almost same plot beats and way less content, worse minigames. Kiwami 2 is AMAZING, so freaking over the top(Osaka Castle), the antagonist Ryuji is so much better than Nishki and the final fight is as epic as 0's.. Nishki was only interesting due to 0 actually giving him a character

Sakurazuka posted:

Almost all the scenes with Nishiki were added in Kiwami, in the original you didn't see him at all between the intro and the final confrontation

Interesting, that makes the original even worse. The reason I rate 0 so highly is because it makes Kiwami 1 a better game atleast in terms of story, gameplay wise 1 is not even close to 0.
Not saying the original was bad but just relative to Kiwami1 and 0. Also like someone said it depends what order you played them in.

I am currently at Yakuza 3 remastered, got it installed on the ps5 just waiting to finish God Of War first.

Whether the studio decides to continue making games in the Judgement series after Lost Judgement, or decides to make a new IP, I'm just happy they have something to keep their action oriented combat in. Seems like a good idea to have two series where you can branch out with combat styles so that it doesn't get too stale after awhile. Granted, I played through 5 Yakuza games last year and never got tired of the combat.

The Yakuza studio is extremely talented, not sure how many people here played Binary Domain but that is a very underrated game. One of the most fun third person shooter campaigns ever. It ended with a tease for a follow up but I think that was the era where lots of Japanese devs were struggling.

Playing God of War for the first time on ps5, it feels amazing at 60fps, Anyway this game seems very hard on Give me a challenge which isn't even the highest difficulty. I had finished all the previous god of war games on hard difficulty in my first runs. The bosses have all been easy so far it's just the regular mobs are harder to juggle, probably get easier with more abilities but I feel like Kratos does too little damage to enemies even if they increased it by like 5% it would feel a lot better early on.

Gonna be 100% here, I feel like FF7R combat only really impressed people who donít play Kingdom Hearts, because itís just a very slight variation on the KH3 battle system, but with less going on than KH and also the enemies you fight in FF7R are some of the most boring garbage mobs in any RPG.

Thatís honestly the major downside of having FF7R only being Disc 1, you only really ever fight starting area monsters but stretched out over a 30 hour game.

I am one of those people, I do have KH in my library and will get to it. The only other real time jrpg I have played is Tales which is deep but feels way more floaty/clunky.

Talking about Virtua fighter and fighting games. Does anyone have this problem with fighting games, I am completely trash at 2d fighting games like even the "campaign/arcade" mode is hard for me but in 3d fighting games I am actually good and can even get wins only. 2D fighting games like Guilty Gear or SF look fun but I just end up getting destroyed whenever I try them.

So just played two and a half hours of Demons Souls and beat tower knight, sister friede twice and nearly beat maneaters. Died once the whole time. feeling very very good about that. Actually, good is an understatement. I am feeling magical. Only one death at the very end of the stream. Goodness.

I think I might end up ranking this game really high in my souls games ranking. There is something about it that I cannot quite put my finger on. If you had to force me to rank all six right now it would go like this from best to least.

Bloodborne
Sekiro
dark souls 3.
Demons souls.
Dark souls 2.
Dark souls.

They are all just such great games that ranking them feels like a disservice to them.

Ya these games are awesome, also it's interesting to see everyone have slightly different rankings but seems like Bloodborne is the most consensus favorite pick. If Elden Ring is even half as good as these games, it will be another banger.

I agree with this. Accessibility options help everyone. I turn off QTEs and I pretty much ALWAYS play with subtitles. I have even used the high contrast mode in TLOU2 a few times because some parts of that game strain my eyes.

Yes this has been one of the best trends in gaming. I have no disabilities but currently playing Man of Medan on PC, the qte's are so unreal fast, I had missed all of them until I changed the accessibility options.

The 4k talk reminded me of the packaging of the ps5 which has 8k on it. I mean a 3090 can barely run anything at 8k so a ps5 is much less likely.
