My kid’s now complaining about the lack of more Spider-Man DLC!

…I’m so proud. Now he gets to learn about such an integral part of the gaming experience; to wit, the way that you can’t find out what the schedule for new DLC is, whether they’re doing any to begin with, and how most companies manage to shrink their DLC schedules down to the bare minimum or beyond whenever your back is turned. And then there are the sites that lie about DLC! Just so that you’ll click. And almost start a story about new Spider-Man DLC, until you realize that it’s just a recycled story from last year.

Or so I imagine.

PS: I’m trying to make time to actually play the damn game, yes. And the Uncharted games, although those I might as well wrap up and give my kid them for his birthday. Lord knows he’s burned his way through Spider-Man.

The “Oh, No, this looks PERFECT” Spider-Man PS4 Honest Trailer.

Their honest opinion?  ZOMG.

This is apparently the best Spider-Man game EVAR, and naturally it’s exclusive to the PS4.  Starting to think that maybe I picked the wrong system in the Console Wars*.  Not that the Xbox 360 isn’t obsolete anyway…

*Of course, I’m a PC gamer anyway.  But it must be admitted that the PS4 has some fine titles associated with it.

I admit, Detroit: Become Human is slightly tempting.

As in, I’m almost tempted to get a PS4 so that I can play it.

I mean, sure, the plot is going to be regurgitated half-ass political jackwagonry, but the visuals look nice and I can groove to having a lot of branch points for a game like this. Alas, Detroit: Become Human is specific to the PS4, which makes it, ah, problematic. It’s not even that I wouldn’t be able to afford to get a PS4: I’m sure that if I could, if I wanted to spend none of my discretionary cash for about half a year. It’s that I have no useful place to put one.

Still. Pretty game.

Fallout 4 mods coming to PS4 after all. *Again*.

I swear to God, I keep reading this story something like every couple of months.  They must love torturing Playstation 4 owners, huh? …With ‘they’ remaining carefully undefined, of course. Anyway, GeekTyrant reports that the ‘pissing match,’ to quote the site (I agree with the site, by the way) is over:

It would appear now that things are smoothed over, but with Bethesda offering little to no detail, it’s not immediately clear who caved. Did Sony stand their ground and Bethesda break hoping to boost Skyrim Remastered PS4 sales, or did Sony relent and let Bethesda release the mods the way they want to the platform? Considering Fallout mods and now Skyrim mods were announced, we can assume that this deal was fairly recent as Bethesda likely doesn’t have mod support ready for PS4.

‘Course, this is of academic interest to me, mostly because I don’t have a PS4 and I’m currently anxiously waiting for more mod conversions for the PC version of the Skyrim Special Edition… Continue reading Fallout 4 mods coming to PS4 after all. *Again*.

‘Horizon Zero Dawn’ ALMOST looks pretty enough to justify a PS4.

Not that I’m going to get a PS4 simply for one game.

Or, indeed, get a PS4 at all. I can’t seem to figure out how to schedule videogame time for myself on anything else except the PC.  This would be just another game I wouldn’t play and that my kids would eventually play in a few years. Which is not such a bad thing, of course – but a man’s got to know his limitations. Continue reading ‘Horizon Zero Dawn’ ALMOST looks pretty enough to justify a PS4.
