On the other end of the spectrum, the Godzilla game is not awesome if you don't want to play a video game that was made from an incompetent team who half assed everything. Just because it has Godzilla in the title does not mean you should accept a piss poor video game.

Godzilla is a fun game but it does get repetitive fast there's fun nods for fans here and there. Maybe if you can rent it.

As for other suggestions the new God of War is pretty amazing. I highly recommend that. Final Fantasy XV is also a great game.

I'd agree that the Godzilla game is worth checking out. Personally, I love it. But as others have said, it gets repetitive and it's not so much a great video game as much as it is a very solid kaiju simulator.

For other games, if you're into Batman, Arkham Knight is just amazing. And the DLC is a real treat (one of the few DLC's I'd ever actually say is worth paying for).

Best games for the PS4 include The Witcher III, Horizon, Uncharted 4, Uncharted Lost Legacies, Rise of the Tomb Raider, God of War (though far from perfect due to half assed RPG elements included), Final Fantasy XV, Shadow of the Colossus remake, Assassin's Creed Origins, and Watch_Dogs 2. Also, obviously the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2.

I've spent about 10 hours playing RDR2 so far and it is quite good, though a bit overwhelming. Once I got past the early missions and got to go into the open world I've spent more time just going around the map, getting killed multiple times, twice by a cougar, and screaming at the screen because for some reason my weapons keep teleporting back onto my friggin horse. I'll be in the middle of a hunt, go to pull out my bow, and it's gone. Back on the horse. Same goes for when I ran into a gator and went to shoot it with my rifle. Then there are the horse physics, which are absolutely atrocious. I don't know how many times my horse has face planted, but it's ridiculous. The worst was when I was just standing over a cliff looking around for some rock formations that match a treasure map I acquired and my horse just comes walking up from behind me and walks right off the cliff. -_-

The sites are amazing and I took so many pictures. Here's a few things I got to see today:

I've only done like 3 story missions, wasted time on poker, black jack, and that stupid knife your finger game, saved some people in danger, and done a couple of the stranger missions. Also beat the first hunting challenge, but I can't seem to not kill a rabbit and get perfect skin for "OH GODZILLA! WHAT TERRIBLE LANGUAGE!" to accomplish the second one.

Overall, I'm enjoying the game, but god damn Rockstar needs to patch the horse crap quickly.

That gun thing is for "realism", which I kind of get but at the same time... c'mon, it's a game. I did a mission where we hunted a legendary bear and because of that all I had was my pistol. I really, really, really wish you could make weapon load-outs similar to how you can save outfits. If you watch your character as they ride, they'll stow the weapons into the saddle but its so damn frustrating when you are riding and get attacked or want to do some shooting, you have to open the radial menu, select the now empty space, and sort through your ever expanding weapon selection every "OH GODZILLA! WHAT TERRIBLE LANGUAGE!" time because your character put everything away after being on a horse more more than half a minute when it takes 5 hours to get to anywhere in the game.

I don't know much about RDR2, but based on the yelling coming from the other room, either the horse mechanics are really glitchy or Mrs Klen7 really hates @#_&+ing horses all of a sudden :lol:

The probelm is I shouldn't have my guns just totally disappear on me when I get off my horse.

Anyway, I've given up and 100%ing the game as I can't beat Gambler Challenge #8 because it's all luck and no skill, which is NOT how something required for 100% completion should be.

I've decided to just focus on the collectibles, missions, and legendary animals. As such, I've collected every cigarette card, rock carving, dremcatcher, and found all of the dinosaur bones I can fine at this point in time. Mission wise, I'm at the beginning of Chapter 4. Chapter 3 was pretty damn awesome.

Sony shed some light on the PS5 today.

They announced it would have a modified AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen CPU as well as a modified AMD Navi GPU. The CPU is going to be powerful enough to support 3D audio (think Dolby Atmos) with out the need for additional hardware. The GPU is going to have ray tracing support and up to 8K visuals. It will also have a modified SSD for faster load times. Finally its going to be fully BC with PS4 and PS VR titles.

I would expect the next Xbox to have similar specs and performance but we'll have to wait until E3 for that.

With this news I would expect titles like The Last of Us Part 2 to get moved to PS5 instead of the PS4 or they'll be gross generational titles.

I find it odd that Sony didn't announce all of this in a press conference or something. Oh well.

What I want to know is, will it play 4K movies?

^It probably will be 4K, as will the game discs likely. My only want though would for it to be BWC. Offering some games from previous consoles online to download is of no use if they ALL aren't there.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

I'm going to assume yes since it was confirmed to support physical media. It wouldn't make much sense for Sony to include another plain BD drive in the system.

O.Supreme Sony did file a patent recently in regards to BC so it may be possible to do PS1, PS2 and PS3 games down the line with out the need for a PlayStation Now subscription.

My guess is at the end of the year Sony will do a full press conference revealing details especially considering that the system is rumored to be out next Spring at the earliest. But then again MS and Sony usually do fall releases for systems (November).

Yes, but there is a difference between BD and UHD.
