Playstation 4 Games Catch-All

As for GoT, not seieng any Souls about it either. More like 'yet another open world game', that could have been named Assassins Creed. Which to be fair, can be a perfectly fine thing, and I hope it will be.

Yes, the more I have watched the more I see that it is not Souls like. It is Horizon: Japan edition, or InFamous: Samurai Son. Which makes me happy. I will get it day one.

I'm interested in Ghost but not until the end of the year discounts. It looks pretty formulaic and not like something I'm going to miss out on by waiting.

Just watched the trailer for F.I.S.T - Forged In Shadow Torch & it looks glorious. I'll be keeping a close eye on this.

That does look amazing!

So is it fair to say that when this comes out, everybody will be FISTing?

Transactions are vanishing from Sony's servers, locking users out of (re)downloading games they purchased digitally for PS3, PSP, PS4, and PS Vita. Currently, Sony has not acknowledged this issue. Customer Service seems to be closing calls without addressing the issue.

Snarky me wants to make a comment about the wonderful all-digital future where things you pay for are at the mercy of giant corporations. And I suppose I just did. But in all seriousness, given that Sony is preparing to launch a digital-only version of their next console, this is something that really needs to be addressed publicly.

So check your library of games you deleted to clear space on your hard drive, because it's possible something is now missing.

Given that my Download List currently tallies 1,645 items, it's going to be pretty hard for me to verify if that's lower than it should be.

Article regarding the issue.

Edit: I broke my general "never read the comments" rule and was not disappointed. A user going by the name of "A 42 year old loli" (so you know what a classy fellow he is) is complaining about how Sony went woke and "betrayed all of us". Not even commenting on the issue mentioned in the article.

Gonna have to check my list, though I'd be hardpressed to find anything missing without some serious scrutiny.

please don't make me google that, what is a 42 year old loli?

goddammit... I google it.

I hate the internet a little bit more now.

I'm going to have a hard time finding something missing from my library, unless I'm currently or recently played it.

Glad I got a physical No Man's Sky. Going to be playing that forever I think.

Would that game even continue to work?

I believe its fully playable offline with exception of sharing discoveries and such

I wasn't sure how much of the new stuff was on the disc.

Good point.

What a mission! The Mafia remake is looking fantastic.

Man, I feel like a putz for buying Mafia 3 a number of years ago, never getting around to it, only to have it released as a trilogy set here, which I will definitely be buying. Oh well.

IIRC, if you own it on PS4, you'll be getting the remaster for free

Mafia 3 is great, by the way. I slept on it. That was a mistake. Between the stealth, the melee combat, and the gunplay, which are each proper good, there's an awesome tale woven amongst memorable characters. The voice work is also superb. I was entranced to see what and where and how came next.

The game seemingly gets dinged for being either too linear, or too open, or too sparsely interspersed with additional activities. I personally didn't find these to be true. Nor do I comprehend the lack of goodwill in these respects that games such as Uncharted, or The Last of Us, for but two examples, tend to receive. Pot. Kettle.

The remake for the original looks outstanding. Hearing that it'll play akin to the third is music to my ears.

I REALLY liked Mafia 3. The story and its presentation are superb. Also, when an enemy is shot they do their best to find a railing and fling themselves off.

I think my only real complaint about Mafia 3 was the structure for weakening zones got repetitive. It was also glitchy, but mostly in funny ways rather than game-breaking ways. I really enjoyed it, dug the characters, and the story has stuck with me. Definitely worth checking out.

Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition is on sale for $15 in the PS4 store, had to bite.

Apparently Sony is giving $10 to plus members. Anybody got it yet?

Huh. That's what that notification on my app was yesterday. I figured it was some sort of "here's an avatar for beating Persona 5 Royal" or something, like the avatars they gave me after getting Platinum on God of War.

Sweet.

Where do you see that?

Definitely Europe but sounds like some NA too.

Oh, do check your emails - as you beat palaces in P5R, Sony sends you themes and whatnot tied to them

I saw that but something tells me Australians won’t get it.

Yeah I haven't seen anything yet.
