picked up a ps4 about a month ago and its been about a month since I turned it on
Still waiting on a game to make either system worth buying. The Order: 1886 looks interesting from what little I have seen.
Also, Titanfall looks like COD with mechs.
The games are slowly churning out but it does feel the initial release for both systems came about a year earlier than needed. The last generation consoles had playback compatability to allow you to play your past gen games on the system while waiting for more exclusives, etc. Without this feature, this next gen console selection seems bare out of the gates. There are several great releases coming in 14 but this has cooled the excitement over the two systems. Of course by Summer I probably will have forgotten these feelings as I'm saving up for next gen release after another. Just an impatient man child is all.
Ren: great recommendation of Dark Souls. Still got some hackin n slashin to get through before getting the sequel coming out in a few weeks (which I hear looks/plays sick: IGN Preview).
Pretty much exactly how I feel. I still play Halo 2 with a couple of friends from time to time, and I think you're spot on about CoD.
I actually thought Reach was pretty good because it felt a lot more like 2, though the add-ons I thought were dumb.
I personally feel that the systems were released too late. If they were to release during the summer, we could of got the last NCAA game, NHL and GTA V, After playing many hours of the Xbone, I'm somewhat bored because most of games I like are also on CG. I played the Titanfall beta and although I'm not too thrilled of the wall jumping stuff, I can see it having great replay value once you unlock everything that wasn't in the beta.
Yeah I agree with your point for some specific releases like NCAA 14/GTA 5/AS4 etc. but those games were just improved graphics from the PS3/360 games and didn't reflect much difference in gameplay. COD/BF4, AS4, Tomb Raider, Injustice, etc. were released on both generation consoles with minimal difference. I like TitanFall but am not a big online FPS guy. Dark Souls II isn't even coming to next gen as is the case with some other bigger 14 releases. If it was released this Fall, most of the 14 lineup would be ready on top of annual games like Madden, NBA2K, NHL that are specific to the next gen consoles and not improved ports.
Good call, The Order: 1886 does look good as a kind of next gen "Dishonored" with gunplay being much more incorporated.
I can't justify the price. It doesn't seem like either of these systems are much of an upgrade over their predecessors.
There just aren't enough games out right now, that's about to change in March.
Titanfall is getting pretty solid reviews.
For some reason I didn't think it was on 360.
Probably won't look as good but I hope the game plays well.
I think I'm going to get my XB1 tomorrow, Titanfall looks like a can't pass up type of game.
Not me. It looks like a game I will never have an interest in playing. Might have something to do with it being a FPS.
I've started to get more and more into FPS games. I don't play them so much for the story-line, but they're great for multiplayer.
Bioshock Infinite (best of the three released in my opinion) is an amazing FPS with a great story. Far Cry 3 is another great single player FPS with a good story that isn't linear by any means. There are some single player FPS but you're certainly correct that it has been almost an exclusive Multiplayer field by proxy the last decade or so. Battlefield/COD players usually rush through the short campaign just to get comfortable; if they play it at all.
My b, meant to respond to Childs Play.
Yeah, I think that it's the post-op Modern Warfare effect. There was a time that the only people playing nerdy FPS games were the computer playing Doom 2/Duke Nukem crowd, but now they're so engrained in everyone.
Doom!!! DN was good too. That was IT for the most part back in the day for FPS before COD turned the genre on its head (pros and cons).
I probably spent more times replaying Doom and DN than I'd care to admit. I guess the Battlefield games were there before CoD too, those were pretty game changing, as far as multiplayer goes.
I really didn't get into Battelfield until part BF3 so you would have more knowledge there definitely. I'm one of the losers that still plays the campaingn on hard mode . I know some BF guys wanna half fight when you mention COD so they definitely are 1-2 in the industry. I'm more hack n slash kind've guy but (Devil May Cry, Castlevania, God of War, Dark Souls that I'm still hacking through) but love FPS as my second genre of preference. Wolfenstein (released in 09 I beleive) was a suprisingly good FPS that I picked up on the cheap recently. On the bolded: all gamers have been there and feel ya
I switched primarily to PC gaming recently, but I still like the PS4 better than the Xbone.
I just hate the gameplay of FPS.
