Just watched the credits roll in Yakuza Kiwami! I had a really great time with it. Sure, I think the combat was a little rough around the edges at times, and that car chase segment can bite me, but overall it was really good.

I liked that the world felt very intimate & despite not being large in size, was packed full of things to do (Pocket Circuit, Mesu King, Darts, Billiards, and the Batting Cages were my favorites), and the story was very interesting with lots of twists.

I mean, it obviously depends on the genre, but games can be linear while still offering some degree of design openness. The word "linear" can mean a lot of things, and I do think it's OK to use it as a pejorative when you're referring to an experience that feels, well, automated, like you're on rails. That's OK if I'm playing Sin and Punishment or something, but with RPGs, platformers, etc. this can really harm the appeal of the experience. It's like the difference between older Final Fantasy games and XIII. Both are "linear" experiences, but the older games in the series give you some level of freedom and agency about how you'll progress, and just crafted the world map and available traversal methods to funnel you down a narrative route.

This youtube video is great on this issue:

Most of Google's revenue comes from successfully matching ads up with people who want to see them (which on youtube is done via the subject of videos).

If you're using Chrome, I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out they're monitoring everything you write.

@Dezzy Who uses Chrome? The thing is a massive security hole by design.

Dreams has to come around next year. Probably will show off the release date and probably a beta period.I like Media Molecule but I still have no idea what Dreams actually is

For anyone with PSVR and likes rhythm/music games Beat Saber is fantastic! We got it last night and my arms are actually sore from playing it lol. Decent workout and a really fun gem of a game!

Couple deals today Hitman 2 down to $30 and Darksiders 3 down to $40 (though it'll probably be even cheaper in a couple weeks) both on Amazon.

Most people, is the answer.
I use it simply because I find it runs better than Firefox.

@Malcrash Short answer: an easy to use game engine. But you can make whatever you want. Music, videos, not just games. Little Big Planet on steroids essentially, not limited to a 2D platformer.

lol. The stream is brilliant. They're straight up trolling, they're showing the same old demo they've shown for years, the one with the moving platform and the lava floor.

Anyway, Dreams beta coming tomorrow!

@CanisWolfred Yep, that's the part they didn't mention until later on in the stream. Twitch chat wasn't happy about that.

@CanisWolfred Apparently it isn't even everyone else on January 8. They'll send invites in waves starting on that day, and they can't guarantee everyone can get in.

The way they've handled this is pretty bad IMO. They've been teasing it for a year, only to tell people it's exclusive to those who signed up to their newsletter. The rest will get a chance next year. They've had a year to tell everyone this.

@NEStalgia Most people I know, including myself, migrated from Firefox to Chrome years ago. It's faster, and, at least initially, it was the only major browser that supported 60fps playback in Youtube videos.

Yep, I use only chrome, and my university where I work focuses on Chrome-first trouble shooting. I think it's more strange to see people who use other default browsers.

@Ralizah @PikPi i haven't enough facepalm gifs in my non chrome browser for these comments.

No wonder the internet is the cluster it is. Maybe I've spent too much time with secure environments but i can't even fathom your internet reality . I bet your certificates aren't even up to date, you savages.

@NEStalgia I hope you're not sweating too much, down there in your bunker with your tinfoil hat, waiting for Tor to slowly load your secure webpage.

Ralizah

NEStalgia

@Ralizah the bunker isn't made by Bethesda, so it's fine. But don't worry, Google and Xi will help you know what to think based on everything you've ever done thanks to your fast browser

Seriously it's a browser made for the sole purpose of extracting information, and thus leaving numerous vulnerabilities open. At least use edge, bad as it is.... Any business with a half competent security team treats it as malware.

Anyhow, back to PS4 games, I just started up Titanfall 2.

I thought it was neat how it recommended a difficulty level based on your performance in the training mission obstacle course (which it correctly picked based on my preference). Game looks really good (almost too lush for it's own good as enemies have been hidden so well behind foliage that I didn't notice them until I was right on top of them, lol). Definitely going to take some time getting used to the heavier platforming emphasis compared to Halo Anniversary, which is the only other FPS I've played in recent memory. I'm liking it so far, though.
