I can’t believe how poorly Sony managed to sell the PS4 Pro. That presentation should never have been streamed.
They’re updating games as old as Shadow of Mordor for the PS4 Pro? o_O
I assume Sony has to be paying for it.
RT @DanStapleton: Considering most 3rd-party E3 demos are shown on high-end PCs already, there’s not much they can show to visually impress us on PS4 Pro.
Ooh, HDR coming to existing PS4s by firmware update is much more exciting (since I’m nearsighted and 4K’s useless to me).
4K is pretty, but the game…? Looked and sounded as a Halo 5 cutscene, and it was just as interactive and interesting.
Presumably they couldn’t hit the $400 price point with 4K Blu-Ray? Then they may have chosen the wrong priority. (Though I guess it’s understandable they’d be traumatized by the PS3’s failed launch.)
Briefly checking out GTA Online again, no idea what’s going on at any point. Rather impatient to play Watch Dogs 2 instead.
I had successfully forgotten how fun Overwatch can be. When you’re not booted out of the game because too many players quit.
So let’s focus on that negative rather than buy the game, because I don’t need a time sink right now.
I was having a crisis of faith re: getting a PSVR before a PC — and then I remembered Rez was coming.
RT @nicklockwood: Apple:
Makes the most powerful mobile games console on the planet.
Runs a store where only F2P 2D puzzle games can make any money.
I’m finding For Honor completely amazing (in 4v4, mostly) but I’ve never played, say, Chivalry, so what do I know.
Two things Overwatch gets right that For Honor mysterioulsy chooses not to: your allies are always the same color, and you can change heroes at respawn.
I don’t really enjoy wave-based survival modes, but this looks more than decent.
The Forza Horizon 3 demo was full of diverse cars at launch, but now all the drivatars are driving the same blue BMW we’re all locked to 😄
Gave in and preordered the PSVR headset. Wanted to wait in case they released a complete bundle, but I’ll look for secondhand Moves instead.
I like to think the odds are pretty good that SteamVR will be compatible with Playstation VR headset and controllers by the time I get a PC.
I guess the music isn’t as bad as Child of Eden’s and I’ll get used to it.
Went to a PSVR showcase and somehow chose all of the worst demos. Except for Driveclub — Driveclub on a wheel is awesome.
I need a wheel.
The Tomb Raider PSVR experience is uninteresting and looks like shit because they’re going for photorealism without the power to achieve it.
The VR mode in Bound is definitely pretty but having to keep teleporting manually in addition to controlling the character is too much of a pain in the ass.
And Rush of Blood is very good at what it does but oh my god demoing a rollercoaster to VR virgins are you fucking mad?
I don’t think it made me queasy (unlike Rush of Blood) but the lack of G-forces when you hit the brakes hard in Driveclub is extremely weird. Wheeeee! Suddenly you’re in zero-G!
La démo Playstation VR est à l’angle de la rue des Archives et il y en a pour tous les goûts, si vous n’y allez pas vous êtes de gros nazes.
Didn’t seem possible to disable traction control in Driveclub VR; looks like they want to make sure you won’t do donuts until you throw up.
RT @kezamacdonald: Some of the comments on Palmer Luckey’s now-deleted Reddit account are quite, quite extraordinary. Amazing how fast money can strip empathy.
Forza Horizon won’t be here until tomorrow and I need to take my mind off PSVR and maybe I should have bought it online even at 20€ more.
I deleted the game to start over and now installation is stalling at 4%. If my Forzabox is dying just before its last hurrah I’m gonna be 😡
Finally found the one place in the Xbox dashboard where the installation progress counter isn’t stuck at 0%, so I guess I’m fine.
Everyone said Forza Horizon 3 was the best car game ever so of course I’m finding the tone and structure less enjoyable than Horizon 2.
