I picked up Tomb Raider but I just haven't been able to make myself play it very much... not sure what the deal is, just not finding it fun. I'd rather play Resogun or one of the PS3 games I'm still working on. So I am really looking forward to this, it looks super fun and I really got into the first two games, and I want a real AAA PS4 game I can sink my teeth into.

Here are a few direct uncompressed screenshots (capture card not Share button):




Here is the thread where a user posted some screens: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=716795&page=146

Can't wait for Friday.

P.S. if it is considered bad etiquette that I grabbed these from another forum let me know and I will remove them.

Edit: Thanks Pendragon, I added the neogaf link where the screens came from.

All the screens being posted so far were grabbed from another forum (Neogaf) just edit in a link to the thread if you got them from somewhere else.

Damn I am glad I finally sprang for a new TV... playing this on the trusty 'ol 480p 42" would be a real waste.

These screens are making me wish I had a projector already. Come on already, release those 1080p LED models so I can start comparing them!!!

Best Buy's and Fry's should hook up some PS4's to their displays. They could sell a ton of new tv's that way.

Gotta calibrate them first, torch mode does no favors for any content.

I keep being impressed with the screenshots that show the ripples being created by the rain drops hitting the ground. Im sure it isnt new, but some reason it keeps catching my eye.

That ocean side view is stunning...if only we could swim rolleyes.gif

I'm more impressed with the fog effect on the light.

I can almost put myself in the screen it's so realistic. Amazing screenshot and I hope that's not an offscreen screen grab (which then only shows the person's photo-skillz)

First two are on sale for $30 on PSN. I'm kind of tempted but it would probably be wasted money on my part.

Only a few more days..

Regarding shorter games not being worth the $: I used to agree with that. But if you beat the game in a week, a few weeks, even within a months time, you are going to get $40 if you resell it (basically, do anything but trade it in to gamestop unless they got a promo going). So for the price of two movie tickets, you get 10-20 hours of enjoyment instead of just the two you would get with a movie. That's how I justify it lol.

ugh, a few more days my azz!

GameStop said it will ship on the 21st but I might not get it till the 1st of April. weh weh. Heck even my Frozen Pre-order bluray/dvd/digital copy arrived yesterday, 1 day before street. Amazon stuff is 2nd day as well as most other things from somewhere in the midwest which I assume Gamestop has a channel somewhere that has it. Ingram Micro is also in my backyard. Everyone gets their sh*t from them!

still, looking forward to this game and getting some other multiplats on the cheap for the wife

I'm guessing shard hunting is looking for that blue looking shard thing on the mini map and basically collecting a buttload of them? I enjoyed that on the first Crackdown on 360

There is a toilet joke to be had somewhere from that declaration.

I enjoy fetch quests more when the fetched items helps power up my character or some other benefit.

The shard collection did increase Cole's energy store levels...just was PITA to keep track of what areas you had completed shard collection. Not that deep down inside I wont mind exploring Seattle (hometown)!

If I get the game, I will definitely ignore all shards just like the previous games.

I think I got all of them in Infamous 1 IIRC. I probably will do it in this one because it is actually a real city we are exploring and it will likely be fun to explore it

Well, any fears I had about the gameplay are officially gone. The guy who coined the phrase "30 seconds of fun" from Bungie was at Sucker Punch working on Infamous Second Son as Lead Designer. He left the company after the game went gold, but was there for three years.

The campaign or MP on Halo? I loved Halo (1's) multiplayer with system link and playing online but the campaign is a horrible cut and paste job. They better not bring in The Flood and make you play the entire campaign backwards tongue.gif

First Infamous was a bit repetetive clearing those dam alarms off buildings and all the timed chase $%&*. I really hope they ditched all those kinds of $%#* side missions. I'd rather collect blast shards on the first game than some of those side missions.

Gamestop is offering 15% off right now. Use code "paypal15" for 15% off, and code "saver" for free shipping. Good deal if you aren't completely sold on the game for full price; works on pre-orders for other games too if you want.

YMMV, I liked the side quests, for the most part.

Are you sure this is working? I tried with a preorder of MLB 14 for PS4 and it says the code is not valid when I apply it. Thanks.

Worked on a Sony Gold headset (had to put the free shipping code first). More info here: slickdeals.net/permadeal/116286/gamestop---gamestop-coupon-15-off-one-item-1-year-playstation-plus-membership-digital-code

I just pre-ordered MLB 14 for PS4 and it worked fine. Click on the Slick Deals link above and go to the pre-order list and select from there.
