I saved you a seat at SonyGAF, lol. It's bounced back nicely after the Great Tantrum. 400-500 posts a day, broad spectrum of opinions, transparent moderation with freedom of expression as a central principle. Hey, guess what, you don't get banned for expressing an opinion. Reeeee!

It has the fun, free-wheeling, jokey atmosphere that a forum should have. There is also plenty of cameraderie among the members, and a positive attitude because of the upward trajectory. It's a tenth the size that it used to be (although 10x as big as it was after the exodus), although I like it that way. The old GAF was so noisy and crowded, you couldn't have a conversation. It feels right-sized now.

Of course, it does lean Sony, and it also leans conservative/liberatarian in its politics, so it wouldn't suit many of the members here. I'm really enjoying it, though.

Anyway, don't mean to derail. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program, which is PS4 Discussion, featuring a handful of Xbox guys. :tounge:

Not exactly a glowing recommendation.

I'll download it, but think I'll wait till after i'm done with Ori 2 before starting it.
That is why I say just play until you beat the first colossus. They didn't modernize the controls at all so its really a question of how much they will bother you relative to everything that it does great.

I didn't like the game when it originally came out. I disliked it slightly less playing the remake. I got about halfway through and ended up selling it.

I get that, but wanted to see if it was even worth bothering to download. Seems like it is.

Sony has removed "only on playstation" from God of War. The archive shows the logo was originally there.


PC version incoming? They took the logo down right before HZD and Death Stranding announcements of going multiplat.

Just got the new Titanium Blue DS4 controller to join my Astro. Gonna play Hasbro family games online with some friends of ours since we can’t leave our houses. Got some crowlers from my local brewery and ordering pizza tonight. They are doing the same and we are gonna use FaceTime on our laptops to be in the same room together.

Gotta do what you gotta do!

Sooooo I finally caved and got a second hand PS4 pro, just gotta wait for it to arrive by courier, excited to play HZD and God of War, both games are very cheap second hand so I'm happy, was thinking of getting the definitive edition of HZD as I heard the expansion is decent.

Anything else I'm missing? I've played a bit of Spiderman and TLOU on a friend's PS4, not sure if I'll pick them up again but we'll see, also thinking of the order that's gotta be dirt cheap.

Uncharted Collection was free due to pandemic. Not sure if it still is?
Nah that ended earlier in the month.

So my package arrived much quicker then I expected so I raced down to my local game store and got my games plus ratchet and clank and wow, HZD is incredible, probably better then I thought it would be, looks beautiful, super interesting and plays great too, same with GOW both incredible.

One thing I have to say, is the pro absolutely ramps up the fan when playing these games, not so much ratchet and clank, but it's so bad it turns itself off? This was only after 3-4 hours and I was installing stuff so it was going overtime, but my X1X has never come close to the sound the pro makes damn..

Yeah, HZD and GOW are pushing the PS4 to the limit so you're going to hear the fans rev up alot. HZD not as much but for GOW the fans rev up in the menus so just be aware.
