These comparisons are always fun but in this instance, the extra dark contrast level on the PS version makes the comparison dubious.

PS = too dark


Video from the PS4 comes out way darker than the actual screen you played. I shared a video from the DE on FB and it was so dark compared to how it looks on my TV.

I was apprehensive at first when they said they were redoing her face, but I actually think it looks better in the new version. The skin certainly looks better, and the sub-surface scattering really brings a nice level of reality.

Yes, you can do voice commands, but only if you have the PS4 Camera. I don't have one, so I don;t know how well it works. Frankly I find yelling at my game kind of stupid, so I wouldn't use it anyway.

I have been playing now for two nights, and the PS4 version is much smoother than the PS3 version. I have always played the TR games on the PS consoles, and this is the type of game I enjoy on my PS4, so this was a no brainer for me. Of course, it was my favorite game of 2013, so I didn't mind shelling out the money. If you aren't that into it, I would definitely wait until the price dropped. (Or skip it)

My opinion, this is the best game on PS4 so far. And come on, we knew Xbox would jack up their version. As much as they want us to believe they are just as good as PS4, the proof is in the pudding.


And my God, the white-knighting for women. No more or less sexy than other female roles in games and movies. Elena from Uncharted? Ellen Page in Beyond, etc. A tight tank top is not a far fetched, sexist outfit. A lot of women with decent bodies in real life wear such things.

I just wasn't a fan of the Christmas holiday since it was a repeat for the most part, and this last one was two large bosses in the world on long timers. I beat the marionette (tied for NA first time with ebay server) but I haven't had the desire to try the worm more than once.

The tower of nightmares was really good though.

I wish we could get another AAA title like how Wolf:ET was with campaign unlocks.. and a series of maps.. and then a reset after the campaign ended.
That way.. we could go back to having servers that players own, modding, community made maps.. and less overheard where the devs put so much garbage into a game.. that it ruins the game (levelution comes to mind.. i hate it).

Is there a new AAA title coming out anytime soon? And no.. i dont mean 6v6 Titanfall either.. that game has me all sorts of nervous

god damn.. i'd love a new UT right now..or a future'ish Enemy Territory (done right.. not like QW)..

You won't see that again from the big publishers. They are firmly attached to the DLC teat, and letting us make maps and control servers cuts into that sweet sweet milk.

I'd look for a kickstarter game instead.

IN case anyone is interrested: Tomb Raider looks fantastic on the PS4. Enjoying my second play through on the PS4 instead of the PS3. Textures are 100% better.

I'll grab that eventually, but there's no way in hell I'm paying $60 for it.


It was my GOTY for 2013, so I gladly shelled out the money. I bought the CE for the PS3, so I just traded in the disc and kept the other stuff.

The controller LED is pretty neat. I can see it flickering on my fingers and pants like a torch when Lara is holding a torch in the game. Also, the DS4 is so much better than the 3 in terms of triggers and sticks.

But, yeah, the difference in textures is night and day. Even my favorite PS3 games have this weird grainy thing going on with the textures. (Uncharted, TR, Enslaved, The Last of US) That's gone completely with the PS4. The diffuse lighting on her skin is actually noticeable, and of course the hair. (Although when she was hanging upside down in the beginning, her hair was not obeying gravity...)

Wow, that zombie bees article is scary. I've been following this for a while. Christ, if the bees go, food is going to become astronomically expensive go away.

FTFY


We can pollinate food crops without bees, it's just ridiculously tedious work and it would require a shitload of workers per crop. Cutter is right, food would be hugely expensive. Of course, without all the crazy stupid subsidies food would already be a lot more expensive.

I could use the all pistols unlock one, too lazy to play in a pistol only server.

If the next patch breaks more than it fixes this will be the end of the great BF4 experiment.

It took me like 2 hours tops to unlock all the pistols in a pistol only server running 24/7 Locker.

Don't waste your money on something you can do in a short amount of time.

Read it again and pay attention this time. FREE.

And so much for EQ Next. You'd think those idiots would have learned from the failure that's DCUO. MMOs do not belong on consoles. I don't some shitty control scheme because it has to be designed for console controllers. Pass.



You are aware that they can still use mice and keyboards on the PS4, right?

Hacked versions don't count. Regardless, look at how DCUO plays, that's what you'll be getting for EQN. Enjoy it if it makes you happy. I'll pass, kthnx.

Cutter, really? Do you ever know what you are talking about? PS4 has full support for M/K. Just like PS3. It's up to the developers of the game to implement it into their games or not.

I have a 32" 16:9 monitor that I'm sitting maybe 3 feet away from.
What do you have?
I've been looking to get a bigger monitor than my 27 but not much available, only TVs in the 32" category or super wide screen 29" monitors which I am not a big fan of.

A quick Google will show you that several companies make 30"+ LCD monitors. Dell, Samsung, etc.

After the fiasco that was/is Battlefield 4, I'll be waiting at least a month after release to see how this one turns out.

Every time a customer asks me how BF4 is I tell them "When it works, it's the best multiplayer shooter on the market. When it fails to work it makes you want to destroy things in frustration."

Yeah, waiting to see on this one. Was a must buy until I found out it was 6 vs 6. I understand design decisions, but Ghosts is 6vs 6 too and it SUCKS.

I think you're misremembering something.

This is possible. After having played them, I could not tell you what they were about.

That's what I'm saying, lol. So generic end of the world sci-fi. Something about the main characters dad, something about bug guys or something, hilariously Un-hilarious dialogue between the characters who were ridiculous parodies of human beings. The end.

I mean, I don't even like Halo, but I remember some of the plot.

Vaccination does not cause autism, there is literally no science to support it

Until the cause of autism is found, I think it's a bit brash to rule out vaccinations as a cause. If someone is genetically predisposed to autism, the precipitating factor may very well be the introduction of the vaccine during a particular period of brain development.

sometimes you have shitty luck and are powerless to change the situation.

Seems a bit contradictory. If you believe in science, then there's no such thing as luck.

Uh, Chaos Theory? Yeah. Luck IS science.

I don't know if this is common practice anywhere else but we (New Zealand) have replaced corked wine bottles with screw tops.
Very convenient.
Do you cork or screw where you are?

Noticed that a lot on wine in PA and NY too. Or the ones I buy, anyway. I do like wine, but unlike beer and coffee, I tend to like common wines. $13 a bottle seems to be my sweet spot for wine.

Fake corks are showing up in more and more items. Thought I read there is a cork shortage because of the demand and there is concearns about the new plastic fake corks changing the acidity of the wine.......have found some screw tops here and there, but noticing the foam/fake cork more.

Twist is bad if you plan to hold it for any amount of time. Not a very good seal.

I like the twist because it's easy to get off, but I always pop in my vacuum tops when I put the bottle back in the fridge. Some little suction thing with a rabbit picture on it. Keeps the wine good for a few days in the fridge. It's pretty awesome, except I used to have a whole bunch of the suction tops and they all got lost.

is that NK article for real? it would be an absurd Onion article if they weren't capable of such buffoonery which they are. i mean, their population can't be THAT brainwashed... can they?!?

The government told them that they were really clever and landed at night

I love how they said that they traveled under the cover of darkness which would obviously be impossible since they would need to stay on the opposite side of the earth from the sun to stay "under the cover of darkness". I laughed so hard at the entire thing. It has to be a joke. I see now that others have confirmed it to be a joke. Excellent!

To be fair, the illustrious NK leader and his predecessor have claimed some rather ridiculous shit in the past, so it just makes it harder to tell if these stories are satire or not.

Kim Jong-il claimed to have never golfed before his first game in 1994, during which he got a 38-under par and retired a world record holder. He also claimed he wrote 1500 books during his 4 year tenure at a university.
