Picked this one up for $25 recently and I've been completely sucked in by it. Lots of fun, and play sessions tend to be quite long. I'll probably hit 40 hours before I finish this one.

Loved SSHD on PS3, but this has "free PS+ game" written all over it in a few months, so I'll wait.

I enjoyed the game. It only lasted a couple of play sessions, and only about 3 of the rooms caused any real head-scratching, but it was fun.

Almost all of the hidden areas that yield trophies are...

Picked this up recently when it hit $20, and I'm glad I did. I played Thief and Thief II when they were new (never played Deadly Shadows since I was out of PC gaming by then and didn't have an XBox...

Most people sit 7-10 feet from their TV. You're correct that visible 4K on a 60" TV would be just barely inside the bottom end of that range. If the TV were any smaller, or if you sat anywhere...

You have to be closer than 1.5x the diagonal span of the screen to even see a difference between 1080p and 4K, so it's kind of pointless outside of computer monitors, giant projectors, and VR. ...

Finished the story and got the platinum over the weekend. Still chugging away for 100% completion.

Definitely an improvement over Far Cry 3, though it takes a few hours to differentiate itself. ...

Yep, you need their RealTone cable and a copy of the game. As mentioned above, you'll probably also want independent audio out of your system to minimize lag. That's analog RCA on PS3 or optical on...

Lag will be much more noticeable in a system where you're directly creating the sound than when you're just consuming it. 80ms lag during a normal game may not stand out much, but in a music game...

Audio via HDMI is probably going to have noticeable lag. As I mentioned above, on PS3 I used separate analog audio out for music games to minimize the lag, but the PS4 doesn't have this option. ...

I'm a few hours in and enjoying it so far. The early game hews so closely to Far Cry 3 that it almost feels like a reskin rather than a sequel, but as you get further in, new options open up for...

Splinter Cell: Blacklist (PS3)

Surprised there was never a topic for this game. I picked it up for $20 a while back and recently finished the single-player and co-op. While the loss of Michael Ironside is jarring, the gameplay...

Is it formatted FAT32? The default filesystem on a Mac drive may be HFS+ or something else, and I believe a PS3 can only read FAT32.

Now playing:

Splinter Cell: Blacklist (PS3)
