Which gun? I've gone all through the main story, have each weapon bag, liberated each tower, post and fortress and I'm only 60% of the way through. Crazy long game.

Speaking of climbing stuff, I'm enjoying Dying Light. Pretty cool so far.

Yea once I unlocked the grenade launcher encounters with any enemies became so much easier. The formula is obviously the same at Far Cry 3 but I think the big difference between the two is that I felt the story in Far Cry 3 was more interesting. I wanted to see how it ended and save my friends. Plus you had Vaas who was a great nemesis.

Far Cry 4's game play is the same at 3's but the story is lacking. I don't really care about the Golden Path. It's supposed to be in your heritage but if it's so important to your family why didn't anybody in your family ever mention it. You only find out about it when you go to dispose of your mother. Then you are faced with stopping one group of drug runners to help the Golden Path lady who wants to...wait for it....run drugs. It's fun exploring but the take outpost, climb tower, shoot at a damn eagle gets a bit old.

Sony has elevated the PlayStation Network as the catch-all brand for its entertainment going forward, from movies to music, TV, and games.

The company-wide changes were announced along with "PlayStation Music"--a new Spotify-powered music service for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Xperia phones and tablets. This will replace Music Unlimited.

PlayStation Network's suite of services going forward are:

PlayStation Store: the online merchant for games on PS3, PS4, and PlayStation Vita.
PlayStation Plus: the membership subscription service that offers discounts, free games, and online multiplayer.
PlayStation Video: the buy-or-rent service replacing Video Unlimited, offering some 200,000 movies and TV shows across PlayStation platforms, Sony devices, and PCs
PlayStation Music: the Spotify-powered music streaming service coming this spring.
PlayStation Now: The game streaming service that brings legacy PlayStation games to consoles and Sony devices, and select Samsung Smart TVs.
PlayStation Vue: the new, cloud-based TV service for PS4 and PS3 owners, combining live TV with select network partners with on-demand and catch-up TV content. (This service is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2015).
"We are very excited to offer our wide array of network services including games, TV, videos and music, under the PlayStation brand," said Andrew House, group chief executive of the PlayStation business.

"We look forward to bringing even more compelling experiences, and an unparalleled breadth and quality of digital entertainment services and content to our customers."

Sony added that its monthly active users of PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network together had exceeded 64 million as of December 2014.

I don't even think it's fun exploring ubisoft games. There's nothing unique to see, nothing has any personality whatsoever. That's my biggest prob with these ubisoft games, they're so dry. Like in skyrim, every town a bunch of little side stories. You can just walk around the town or the world and run across interesting, unique stuff. Everything has character. But ubisoft games are just a bunch of mindless activities. If you wander around in skyrim, you'll stumble upon a house, talk to the guy sitting outside and it might lead you on a quest to find something unique. Hell you can randomly stumble upon a rare plant that takes you on a quest across skyrim. In far cry, you'll just find another chest with a junk item in it that clogs your inventory till you sell it, to buy items you don't need because you pick up better stuff off the ground. Same thing in black flag, watch dogs, and probably the division. The openness of the world is pointless, because it's just a stretch of empty space that spans between activities. They might as well just drop the pretense and present you with a list of activities to click on and directly play.

I've heard this, but I've never managed to pull it off. The Bell Towers all have a finial on the center of the roof, and when I try to land to the side of it, because the roof is pitched, I just slide off. Fortunately the Bell Towers are easiest of all the repeating side quests, I've found.

How much fun one derives from exploring Ubi games like Far Cry 4 may be a function of how OC one is about collectibles. I personally enjoy exploring every nook and cranny or large beautiful open worlds like Kryat--one my favorite settings I've ever encountered in a video game. And I say that has someone who is only playing FC4 because I got it for free with my PS4. Normally FPS games in a modern-day setting (without a sci-fi or paranormal aspect) aren't my cup of tea.

FC is a bit more bland but that lack of interesting to me was absent in Skyrim as well and why I didn't bother to finish it. Actually I think I'm open worlded out. FC4 had some really cool caves and towns but it was super shallow in that you walk in, collect the map blip, and leave. Tomb Raider (open worldish) had the big battleship you could only look at. Skyrim was boring step and fetch quests I got tired of and quit. Infamous was repetetive but had cool scenery. Watch Dogs at a high level felt like every GTA ever.

What I want from an open world is what Fallout delivered. You got big buildings to wander, big caves, big vaults. Each had torn book pages, graffiti, maniacal robots, deranged humans, weird glowing plants, something, some odd thing that made this cave look different than a waste of time. Even if your not in combat, hey look at that odd machine...wonder what it does? The oddball computer terminals with emails talking about worker activities from pre war. That's what an open world should be. Here's this really cool but out of the way place that's an extra. That's the best open world game out there imo.

I think Infamous kind of hits some of what Fallout did with its tagging graffiti. Tomb Raider had a lot of great areas and very interesting things to see I just wish I could have explored the battleship wreckage. GTA has the big alien thing but no way I'm going to 100% that game to find out. Even regular games like BF sometimes has odd buttons or graffiti that's neat to see or has a mystery to solve. Too many games these days are just bland.

I loved Fallout 3 and New Vegas. Great open world. Great characters. Like you noted I enjoyed finding little trinkets or pieces of history and the story attached. Looking forward to Fallout 4 some time in the future.

Curious to hear what you guys think of the Last of Us? I've only played it on PS3 but bought the remastered PS4 version. One of my favorites.

I'm playing GTA V now and find it pretty boring and looking for something else to consume what little down time I have.

Same but shiny. Kind of regretted getting the remaster actually. It was a lot better but I'd already played it before. What sucked was the online part seemed dead and that's what I really wanted from it. Cool to play again but nothing new except being prettier.

I loved The Last of US. Great story and good mechanics. I spent the past generation on the 360 so I'd never played it before. As much as I liked it I doubt I would have repurchased it on the next gen console without some added reason to do so.

I received the Last of Us as part of a PS4 bundle with GTA V. It was that or Destiny bundle which I don't care for. I sold my PS3 and all my games.

The Last of Us is easily my favorite gaming experience, pretty much ever.

As far as something else there are some decent options out there, but hard to come down from an AAA title. I got a little too much in my playlist right now too. To give you some ideas and opinions:

Dying light is what I'm playing now. So far liking it, and going to try co-op tonight.
There is always grinding for loot in Destiny.
Just started Far Cry4. It appears pretty open ended and has enough polish and penache.
Assassin's Creed Unity is kind of a mess. It's has a lot of good and bad there.
If you are a PSPlus subscriber, infamous first light just got released.
Still need to compelte Shadows of Mordor (4/5 stars), Alien Isolation (3/5 stars) and Evil Within (3.5 /5 stars) that is good.
People love drive club but I don't. It's purty, but I hate being thrown into a new car each race with it's own idiosyncrancies to learn and I don't have time to master it. Guess I'm more of a Gran Turismo guy.

Warning: I make a lot of mistakes but occasionally I learn from them!

What? Online in far from dead! I still play Last of Us Factions on a daily basis, never any trouble with finding matches.
It is not just prettier, it also runs much smoother. Granted, I only played the ps3 version through once, so I wasn't burned out on the single player.

Still about 50% through Assassin's Creed Unity.

I agree, last of us has been my favorite game thus far and I definitely wanted a copy for ps4. I like far cry 4 a lot but once I liberated all outpost and fortresses, i was bored. I'm looking forward to uncharted 4 but that's still 10 months away. I like to watch YouTube videos to determine my next games, didn't care for Shadows of Mordor and found Evil Within very cool and scary. No idea what's next.

The first few weeks had MP issues and I put it aside until a PSN outage got me off FF14 so I finished the campaign and traded it. Probably better now but that was months ago.

The fallout games were incredible. As a matter of fact, I just got fallout 1 and 2 for my laptop and I'm looking forward to playing them. I do hope they make part 4.


Morrowind, oblivion, and skyrim were also fantastic and I'm hoping they are making another also.


The last of us was interesting and memorable as well, but it is not the best game I have ever played like a lot of people scream from the rooftops.
