MS hasn’t released much at all about Xbox Scarlett so don’t know how anyone can say anything definitive either way unless they’ve got a bias. Both are going to have SSD’s which will probably be the biggest improvement eliminating load times on a lot of games. Personally, I don’t see much reason to upgrade at all for a while after the mid-cycle PS4 Pro and Xbox One X versions.

I put an SSD in my PS4 and did not notice as much of a difference as I would have liked. I gave my PS4 to my nephews for Christmas last year and upgraded to the PS4 and did not even bother to swap the SSD from the PS4 to the PS4 pro.

Wow! I had the opposite experience. The SSD made a world of difference for me. I routinely load in ahead of teammates and run around and start doing things on maps before they load in. I can also see the benefit in both dashboard and in-game performance.

For next-gen, though, the difference should be even more pronounced because the SSD will have faster transfer speed instead of using SATA, plus developers will be able to plan and take advantage of it since every console will be on the same baseline. The only negative is this may make it difficult (or even impossible) to upgrade and add drive space on the consumer end. I guess we'll have to wait and see how they handle that.

Holy moly. Riot Games is the new Blizzard.

They just announced a whole fleet of games for their 10th anniversary, including a CCG, Tactical Arena FPS, Adventure RPG, huge updates to their base game League of Legends... and an animated series.

Yeah, I Outer Worlds pre-downloaded and ready to go.

At first I was a mildly bummed that it's shorter and more curated than Fallout, but several reviewers have indicated that it has good replay value.  Fallout/Skyrim-type games are usually one and done for me because they take 100 hours or so to finish, so I never really play around with different character builds.  Hopefully that will be different with Outer Worlds.  I'll probably start off as the same "sneaky lone wolf sniper" guy that I always play in all of these games, and then experiment with speech and companions and stuff like that later on.

Does anyone do the PS Now subscription?  Just wondering how it works and how you like it?  Just saw it this past weekend when I logged onto my PS4.  But didn't really look into it too much.  Do the games play through the internet, or do you download them onto your box?  Is there lag?  Are there enough good games on there to make it worth it?

It seems like it might be something worth trying, but not sure exactly what to expect.

I've read nothing about Outer World's but I've been hearing the hype. I have the game pass also so I'm downloading it.

Sweet. My Gold subscription expired earlier this year due to me never having time to play and not noticing. I hopped on a few weeks ago bought 3 years from Costco and they still had that free upgrade for a $1 promotion or whatever going on. Now my backlog of games went from a bunch to a ####load... :thumbup:

This should be an interesting couple of months for us ARPG fans.

Blizzard is expected to finally announce Diablo 4 at the upcoming Blizzcon and Path of Exile today confirmed that they will be announcing the details for Path of Exile 4.0 which they are calling their biggest expansion ever at their convention coming up.

Haven't been playing many games lately, but this would get me excited again.

Bethesda offering a $100 a year Fallout 76 subscription option.  I love Fallout but I hope this fails miserably.  The things they're offering for $100 a year are a joke.

Reddit has been bashing/meme'ing the hell out of this.  I agree, this should be a total flop.  Especially since the game was already largely panned.

You can pay $100 a year to basically eliminate playing with others.

Hmm, I paid way less for FO4 with all the DLC. 

Seems maybe Bethesda is doubling down on a bad game with a horrible launch. 

Or they are competing with EA and Blizzard for most hated game company currently.  I mean until recently Bethesda was hated, but it wasn't top of the gaming mind.  Now they're back on top!!!

If they gave us administrator powers over the server, ie set respawn rate by instance and enemy type and if the world persisted forever then I would have paid 100 dollars a year. I could have started level 1 characters with my brothers and it could have been a real multiplayer fallout.

Instead, what they offered is a joke.

 

I never even hit level 50 in fallout 76, I think i stopped at level 30 or so.

Yea they aren't even allowing mods on these paid servers.

I don't even understand the thought process other than "money = good, more money =  gooder". They were starting to gain players back to the game. It was becoming decent. Then they do this.

Who the hell buys this?  Admittedly, I don't own Fallout 76 because it looked terrible and got roasted at launch and continued to get roasted well after launch.  But who would double-down on a title this bad at that price point?

Enough people will for them to justify it. They're selling it month to month too at $13 a month. MMOs don't even cost that much anymore. Game companies keep doing it because some people have too much disposable income that money is no object if they like something. I know an internet friend of mine who's a huge Fallout fangirl. She plays the game every day and has said she will get the subscription just to get the game bucks to buy outfits. So who knows? :shrug:

Guess what? It doesn't even work.

Fallout 1st Does not do what it was offering at launch

Not out of deception mind you. Out of incompetence. They took people's money and it's just another regular server with people already on it. Oh also, your scrap boxes are emptied now and all the prizes you paid for are deleted. Enjoy.

Outer Worlds is ready to play on Game Pass. I’m also working from home tomorrow. We’re at a crossroads here.

I’m really tempted to buy the new COD for the first time in awhile. It seems like they've dumbed it back down to more like the games I enjoyed.

Same. I'm probably gonna pick it up tomorrow. First CoD in a while my main gaming squad is all getting it. So it could be good to get back on with everyone.

Spent 3 hours in the character creator tonight for Outer Worlds, figuring out what I might wanna start playing this weekend. Sign of a good RPG, so far.

Been playing Outer Worlds the past day and ny only gripe is that quests and side missions seem to be all cluttered up. Maybe it's me not getting the logic, and I reserve judgement but it's not particularly streamlined

I just finished the first planet, and I agree with your observation.  Many of the quests required a lot of traveling back and forth to various locations, with loading screens standing in your way every single time.  (Multiple loading screens if you fast travel).  

Good game so far though.

The Outer Worlds is pretty awesome if you are looking for a Fallout clone.  It's very frankly superior to FO3 and FO4.  It's hard to compare it to New Vegas since this game is so much more linear but also mostly bug-free.  If Bethesda is working on an Elder Scrolls game at the moment (which I assume they are), I hope they're bringing a major rebuild to the table, because TOW really undresses the Bethesda titles in these series.

I'm liking The Outer Worlds as well, and agree about FO4, not sure about FO3 it seems more comparable there.  I think New Vegas is actually the closest comparison with the factions, weapon mods, and character building, which makes sense since it is mostly the same group.

Just got a notification that Watch Dogs Legion is being delayed?  Also saw that it's going to be released on PS5, too?  Makes me a little worried about buying it for the current generation console.  

When they announced all of the stuff it was going to be able to do, I remember saying that by launch, there was no way they could deliver on their promises.  I think we're starting to see that happen.  

Does anyone else have more detail on the delay or such?  I'm at work and didn't really have time to dig too much into the specifics of it.

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.

I do the same, looking for more.  Wish there were.  Love Overcooked 2, until it gets way difficult.  Lego games are all fun.  Don't know of many more couch co-op.

It is only 2 players, but don't starve together is pretty fun.

 

Trine? Is a 3 player one. Rayman has ?? players?

Trine is awesome, but is it at the same time?  When I have played it on PC you switch characters.  No idea on Rayman.

Other ones I have looked at - Helldivers, Magicka (played this a ton on PC but it has a steeper learning curve)

Just verified that trine is 3 player coop on PS4.

 

Another great game for 4 people split screen is ultimate chicken horse.

 

If you are good at platformers it would be best described as a 4 player competitive Celeste.

 

People not so good at platformers can play it as well. Although a big gap in skill level might not be fun.

does that mean there aren't a lot of side quests?
