PS4 couch co-op games for families.  What do you like?  I like to get 1 or 2 for Christmas and we play the heck out of them.  Have 4 controllers and 5-6 people, so 4 would be good.  We have Rocket League, Overcooked and Trackmania Turbo that are popular.  Already have Diablo 3 but that is only popular with a few.  Love Borderlands on PC but not sure it would be what we are looking for.  Have also played pretty much all of the LEGO games.

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris isn’t very long, but it’s a lot of fun. It does a great job of encouraging you to work together as well.

Spelunky is supposed to be a lot of fun.

 Not sure how old you kids are, but Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is really unique and challenging if they’re a bit older.

Rayman Legends is a lot of fun and fine for a younger set.

ETA: Guacamelee 2 is a lot of fun as well.

In case anyone is looking for John Bender, I ran into him the other day playing Hearthstone online.

He has been perma banned from FBG so he won't be around any more.

I'd say create a new account, but it's been 6 months since I created mine and I'm still waiting for it to be approved.  When I applied, I did it from a PC I've never used before in a different town using a brand new email address.  So it's not like they thought it was me creating an alias.  No clue how new people are getting on this board anymore.

I see that an Avengers game is coming out in 2020.  Made by Square Enix.  Looks... odd.  But SE has made some decent games.  Also made some clunkers.  I'll be interested to see more of this as it gets closer to launch in May.

JC2 may have been my favorite game ever.  Was so excited for JC3 and they focused more on multiplayer than what made the original so good.  Could not wait for JC4 and it was terrible.  A fun game, but they completely changed the gameplay and took away what made the other games so fun.  And on top of that, they released it in such a hurry that it was filled with unplayable bugs.  Sadly, I think their rush to release it may have killed that franchise.  

I wish there was a way to play JC2 on the PS4.

PS4 Slim for $199 with HZD, GoW, and LoU remastered might be a cheap enough price point for me to finally pick one up. Would prefer the Pro but no real screaming deal on those out there I see other than the CoD bundle.

Might still pass, I never have time to play games anymore so just throwing my money away anyway.

If it sucks at least if was "free"  :)

Game looks weird I think mainly because we are all comparing it to the movie characters. Which is understandable. I’ll be there day 1 with it though.

My biggest complaint with JC3 was that the single player game was very short.  I think I beat it in a week.  And even though the map was huge, most of it was uninhabited.  Like mountain area or just useless wasted space.  JC2 I spent moths exploring, trying to find every gas station or water tower hidden in the jungle trees.  I was so pissed when I got to 99% on that game only to find out that the programmers forgot to put a water tower on the map.  So it was impossible to get 100% on the XBOX version.

Fired up Fallout 4 for a second play through. Going to run as a sneaky ninja sniper build. I forgot how much I loved this game. And now I will  be using some mods to boot. This is one of the 5 best games on the PS4 for me.

JC2 is probably the best open world sandbox ever made.  I put hours upon hours into it.  And on PC with mods like indestructible tether, it was even better.

Have you guys heard anything about the return of college sports games, especially football and basketball?  With the NCAA now saying that players can get paid for the use of their name/likeness, I was really hoping that also means the return of college sports video games.  I miss those games for PS4.

Just improved Weather and graphics mod, Better Dogmeat (my dog/companion), a apartment mod in Concord so I can have a residence there, and infinite ammo for companions. 

 

That is all I will use. 

 

When you fire up the game click on the mods menu and browse all of them. There are tons. I try not to use too many to avoid instability in the game.

Awesome. That’s the only game my son plays on the PS4.  He prefers XBox for everything else.

Finally trying Dishonored 2 (bought it last Christmas). With me at the controls, it should be called Dismembered 2. Boy do I stink at this game.

My almost 3 year old son loves car crashes, he will crash his toy cars together a few hours each day. I bought BeamNG and hooked my computer up to the TV so he can watch car crashes and I can sort of play a video game.

 

Anyone else have this? Any tips, recommended maps, car packs, etc?

Finished my play through of Horizon: Zero Dawn

I liked it well enough even if it is just a mashup of Red Dead Redemption and Tomb Raider.

Peeling back the onion that is the story of what happened is a lot more interesting than what's happening in the game's present day world.

The mechanics are perfect, and makes it more fun.

You should give "WreckFest" a go.

Excellent suggestion, I would give your post 4-5 likes if I could. There is a 100% chance that I get this game in the next 2 weeks.

That was the main point of the game I think. I personally couldn't wait to get back to this game each day because I wanted more of the story!

The backstory to this game was actually really good.  I've mentioned this before, but they actually managed to make a "robot dinosaurs" game with a story that makes a lot of sense and isn't obviously ridiculous.  (There are plot holes of course, but they fall within the normal parameters of video game story-telling).

The game to start a young gamer on is bubble bobble.  It was made for the Nintendo so it only uses 2 buttons, jump and shoot a bubble.  It's a 2D game, so its simple to navigate.   Has characters, items, & music kids like.  The shooting of the bubbles & jumping will sharpen their motor skills & hand eye coordination.  The shape of the levels become a puzzle on how to pass.  it's great multiplayer and can play up to 4 on Xbox.  They made a version in the Xbox arcade with better graphics.  It's a perfect kids game.

Yea, I don't expect games to have novel-quality stories, but this one was leaps and bounds above the norm for me.

Trying to enjoy this before the Christmas haul arrives but I am just sooooooo bad at it. I'm sure it is a learning curve thing as I never played the original. I watched some Youtube vids and it looks so cool! Guess there is a bit of effort required before I get the feel of it.

This game is all about using the powers. Get the further teleport asap. 

I find the stealth powers more useful

So I decided to do another run of Dark Souls, this time melee-only.  I don't think I've ever done a run without at least some pyromancy, and my platinum was earned with a sorcerer (i.e. easy mode).  I'll probably pick up some utility spells at some point, but I don't have anything right now.

Got the black knight halberd and oh my goodness does thing hit hard.  My character is definitely a gimped glass cannon at this point since I have to pump my strength to even wield it.  I'm at Quelaag and still stuck two-handing the halberd so I can't use a shield, and my Vit and End are way lower than they would normally be since I haven't been able to put hardly levels into either.  I can hardly wear any armor at all, and I can't take more than one hit from any boss.  But once I get my strength up and start working on my HP and stamina this character should be able to truck most of the game.

Yep, you are really missing out if you take the guns blazing approach in Dishonored.

Rats. I chose the ability to see thru walls and the stop time one over upgrading it. I'll get that upgrade next. I just started working my way through Chapter 3.

And believe me, I don't try to fight my way through. I absolutely stink at melee. Mostly because if I end up in a sword fight, it's usually against multiple enemies and I just go overwhelmed.

So after watching the Witcher I am thinking about starting Witcher 3 from scratch again. I never finished it. Not sure why.

Chapter three going much better as I get the hang of it. Stopping time is my "bail out" move. That, along with an upgraded Blink, I'm getting to the point were I'm dying much, much less if at all. I only just started chapter three, but got all the bone shard and runes and cleared the area without dying. Time to hop on the carriage.
