Title: New Generation of Consoles... PS4/Xbox One thread.
Post by: monkey! on November 24, 2013, 12:54:01 PM
I've been watching the online reviews for both consoles and it makes me jealous. I want both... but despite never having purchased an Xbox iteration, sticking with PS2 and PS3, I kinda want the new Xbox One and it makes me feel dirty inside.

Who's getting what on GS?

I always stay clear of the console games because I'm really busy committing heinous genocidal acts in games like Crusader Kings II.

I'm sticking with PS3 for a good while yet. Might even get another one when this one dies.

The reason is my vast stable of games that I enjoy. We've gotten to the point where PC's can emulate PS2 games and back with decent framerate. However, it will be a while (years?) until we get the same for PS3. With no backward compatibility on the PS4, I will not take that step forward yet. Probably for 3-4 years.

All I can think of is South Park. Only Japanese princesses want the PS4!

Japanese princesses want dirty foot sex and touchy-feely time on the Tokyo underground.

What's really interesting with this next generation of consoles isn't just the graphical jump but the potential to have almost ten times more happening on screen and in the background environment.

It's the whole "interactive world" shit that really draws me in. I remember how stunned I was when you could blow up fire extinguishers in Duke Nukem! Things like Bethesda's open world games just make me hot. I want to run around collecting ferns and shit more than follow any sort of quest.

My ideal game is a totally open world space/planet thing. Fly around, go to deadville nowhere, discover a planet, land, get in Away Mission shenanigans, get back on the ship (or, not, build on the planet)...

But I'll take surviving a zombie apocalypse and running around anytime. Been flirting with the plethora of what's out there currently, but haven't yet been sold.

There's a new open world game, The Witcher 3, coming out for Next-Gen. It looks like a lot of fun.

I was playing NBA 2k14 last night and, because I'm from Europe I don't really know much about basketball other than it is netball for men, I was losing against the computer. I racially abused an opposing player taking his free throw, and I got done for a Technical Foul - "Bad Language" by the referee.

Ha!

NBA 2k14 uses the Kinect sensor for voice commands in the game, like "TIME OUT" etc. and picks up on bad language for Technical Fouls after a decision has gone against the player and they shout, "FUCK YOU REFEREE CUNT WHORE BITCH!"

Phew... the beta was only released today and already Titanfall is a hectic, fast-paced, competitive, fuck-race of death and short-lived joys.

I'll be standing as a pilot, waiting for my titan to fall, locking my rocket launcher onto the back of an enemy titan, boom! big kill points, then some cunt will shoot me in the back. Luckily respawns only take a few seconds. Titanfall really does feel like two different worlds on foot and in your titan. Running and jump-packing through/between/onto buildings, boom! pop some cunt in his face. Or you'll run around a corner, shoot down a few grunts, only to have an enemy titan squash you underfoot.

Nor are the titans overpowered. If you're in your titan and you get caught in the crossfire of another couple of titans, or even two pilots running around your legs, you'll soon be given the "EJECT! EJECT" alert because your titan is about to explode.

It's tough out there, man... you haven't seen the things I have. This game is going to be like heroin.

Titanfall is fun, and quite addictive. It has this strange feeling where you don't mind getting killed loads, because the respawns are pretty much instantaneous, and you're right back in the action.

I'm rocking it with an SMG now (unlocked at Level 6).

It's far more fun than the super-fun beta as well. No single player content though... but with multiplayer this fun, hectic, intense and balanced, it doesn't really need single player campaigns.
