    Well please tell me what's wrong with enjoying games the way I want to. It isn't entitled to choose not to buy games that run at poor framerates.

    Choosing what you will is fine. Just tech whores who shit on everything because it isn't the best of the best are a bit twatty, even though the difference, while noticeable, still isn't relevant enough to matter. It's all marginal at best. I remember having a 50 Inch TV people tried to shit talk because it wasn't HD, still had a great picture, but couldn't see the the wrinkles on Adam Sandler's elbow, Jesus fucking Christ.

    Well, you can blame the video game industry for that gen because they're the ones that chose to sell the systems using those numbers.

    By the way, while I'd never pass on a game because it didn't run at 60fps... I do wish all games would run at 60fps.

    PS4 mid-year sale is on now. I just got Shadow of Mordor for 6 bucks. I haven't played it so I'm looking forward to it.

    Other big games of note are FarCry 4 and Madden 17 both on for 20 bucks. And if you're like me and haven't downloaded Journey on PS4 yet it's currently free.

    AC: Black Flag is also super cheap if you haven't picked that one up yet and have been wanting to play it.

    There's a ton of other stuff but nothing that jumped out at me. Maybe there's a gem or two in there I know nothing about so if anyone has some recommendations I'll hear 'em.

    After I stumbled upon Little Big Planet 3 being a free download earlier this year (which went over huge with my daughter) I've made it a thing to check the store at least once a week for deals. They had an E3 sale but it wasn't very good, then a sale that just ended over the weekend (FIFA 17 was the only game I almost bought, everything else was old or stuff I never heard of) and now this one. I think they're trying to push hard for the influx of students about to finish school for the summer and keep them inside.

    Until Dawn is one of PS Plus's free games for July. If anyone has not played the game so far, you have no excuses now.

    I finally had a couple hours to myself last night so I started it. Here's what I've learned so far:

    It's metal as fuck. You're a never-before-seen character in the Middle Earth world. I won't give away any story but you're in Mordor and there are Orcs/Uruks everywhere. You can't just jump in and start running missions, you have to be stealthy and pick where you go carefully (at least at first, that will probably change).

    You have a sword, bow and dagger, all of which can be upgraded as you progress. The stealth mechanics are annoying. It's hard to move around/to/from objects when you're crouching. That's taking some getting used to for me.

    Speaking of stealth, the orcs are comically stupid when it comes to using it against them. I snuck up on a group of orcs and started taking them out one by one. At one point I grabbed an orc and slit his throat and an orc right beside us heard me, but then I finished the kill and crouched and he went right back to ignoring me so I could easily kill him. Other than that, the combat is pretty good. It's easy to master but doesn't make the game any less easy. You can easily find yourself surrounded if you're not quick to take out enemies.

    The coolest part of the game is that it feels continuous. There are Orc captains throughout the world that you have to take out one by one in order to get certain upgrades/progress the story. They get stronger as you go on, but on the flip side, if one kills you he gets promoted and becomes more powerful.

    Assassin's Creed traversal (plus the ability to ride beasts at a certain point) meets Arkham combat, but with a great hook in the Nemesis system (look it up, takes a bit to explain). It's a pretty violent game, since you have a sword, takedowns aren't just choking a guy out or breaking a leg (ala Arkham), but decapitations and slashed throats.

    So, there were a lot of people that were very happy Seth Rollins was put on the cover of WWE 2K18 because it represented change... It was a sign that the games would no longer rely on the past to move copies... With that said, 2K just announced the Cena Nuff Deluxe Edition of WWE 2K18 that will come with a John Cena action figure, bonus characters: Batista, RVD and 2 special versions of John Cena, the Kurt Angle DLC, and a whole bunch of other crap... Preorder now for $149.99...

    I don't know what's stupider: That they've still yet to show actual gameplay of the game? Or that they're using the Cena Nuff phrase to sell this fuckin' shit?

    Nintendo is hiding the hard difficulty of Metroid 2 reboot(Metroid: Samus Returns) behind a paywall......what is this paywall might you ask? An Amiibo.



    Keep in mind this company is awful when it comes to having these Amiibo's in stock but to have the harder difficulty behind something you must pay on top of the 40 dollar purchase......

    Oh and if you have a 3DS XL, fuck it....you gotta buy an adapter separately to even read a Samus amiibo

    Such idiots. I read they did this before with Zelda: Breath of the Wild with Epona behind hid behind an Amiibo paywall.

    I mean costumes I get, I totally am fine with it. But a difficulty mode? Come on now.

    Played Ninja Gaiden Black after 5 years and fuck me that game is still the gold standard in hack n slash genre. If you think Dark Souls is hard, try Ninja Gaiden Black on master ninja difficulty.

    Got Kingdom Hearts 1.5 +2.5 for the PS4 to fool around with in my rare sparetime.

    I have to admit, Sephiroth's entrance is still chilling. More than 15 years since I played FF7 for the first time, and he's still a scary beast

    Has anyone played Rime? What's it like?

    My daughter keeps seeing it advertised in the PS Store and she wants it. It's on sale right now too, I think.

    I haven't played it, but intend to for GotY purposes.

    It's a very similar game to Journey where it's all about exploring vast open worlds and solving puzzles. I'm not sure how well it would translate to younger audiences. The game doesn't offer a lot of guidance so it can get boring. I bet if you played together, atleast for a session or two she'd enjoy it.

    Give it a shot, I'd be interested to get your impression.

    Has anybody mentioned this?



    My fingers are crossed for a bad English translation.

    Also, I'd like to mention how happy I am that The Sims 4 will be coming to consoles on November 17th. I really hope it doesn't turn out to be a complete mess.
