Good fun...Killzone Shadow Fall is just a gorgeous game....The story line is a bit weak and the environments are not as dark and gritty as the previous episodes which almost make it feel like you are not even playing a Killzone game.
In order for a wound to heal, it needs air, protection from further harm and space from the elements. With time, the open sore will scar over, a hardened reminder of past pain. But if the wound is constantly irritated, given no room to breathe, it will fester. The bloody gash caused by centuries of warfare between the Vektans and the Helghast has never fully healed. Three decades ago, the home world of the Helghast was destroyed and they were forced to flee to Vekta and share the planet with their bitter rivals. Now the constant exposure and incessant clashes between the two races have turned the wound of ancient conflict into a festering cold war. Only a great wall and the efforts of the ISA stand between the two sides — that, and the ever-vigilant efforts of Shadow Marshals like Lucas Kellen. In a steadily deteriorating world teetering on the brink of total destruction, peace is the only chance for survival. Tread lightly, however. Every choice you make will either lead the world closer to healing — or nearer to death.
Don the role of Shadow Marshal Lucas Kellen, who spends his days fighting the constant discord that threatens to unravel into all-out war. When a mission brings you face-to-face with the deadly, mysterious female Helghast solider Echo, an entirely new side to the ancient conflict is uncovered, and you'll have no choice but to face the truth and decide what kind of hero you truly are. Harness the expansive arsenal of futuristic weaponry and gadgetry available to you as an elite operative of the ISA. The commandable combat drone, OWL, functions as an extension of you to augment your abilities to a jaw-dropping degree and deliver a host of innovative tactical options. Full of awe-inspiring environments, breathtaking futuristic set pieces, demonically intelligent enemy AI and an enhanced shooter experience, Killzone Shadow Fall puts the power of the PlayStation 4 on display, while offering an immersive gameplay experience that forces you to redefine the boundaries of right and wrong.
Loved it...kinda new to the series.i thought the game was good.its like a mix o f batman seakimg around.different cool weapons.also like shadow of mordor.and infamous....- Great Graphics - Playable Female Assassin (Evie Frye) - Carriages CONS - Mobility system has not improved or changed much from Black Flag (I really liked Unity's system and they somewhat implemented the same system in Syndicate but it is not the same)
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY — London, 1868. The Industrial Revolution fattens the purses of the privileged while the working class struggles to survive — until two Assassins rise to lead the world's first organized crime family. Conquer the streets of London. Bring the ruling class to their knees. Make history in a visceral adventure unlike any game you've played before.
Your opponent has just unleashed a powerful move and you've just taken a hit that could seal your fate in this fight. Now it's your turn, and you think carefully before making your move. You could attempt a counter-attack, but you're weak from the damage you just sustained. Instead, you decide to try something else. Before your opponent knows what happened, you cast a devastating spell and turn the tables. This is the realm of
Chaotic — and the fight has only just begun.
Enter another world and engage in merciless, turn-based, arena combat in Chaotic. Take on the role of a powerful Creature and reign over your opponents with explosive, animated onslaughts that combine ruthless melee attacks and vicious ranged assaults. Unleash deadly, high-energy attacks and conquer the merciless. Cast devastating spells against your unsuspecting opponents, boost your Creature's power and collect battle gear to help your defensive and offensive strategies. In the realm of Chaotic, the last one standing wins.
Cool cars...The lighting effects, fog, and shadowing all seems to be scrapped....Pros: Stunning Graphics, Gunplay, Driving, Smartphone, Chases, Online Cat and Mouse Cons: Weak Voice Acting, Convoluted Story, Seemingly Empty Karma System With No Noticeable Repercussions This game is arguably one of the most anticipated titles for the next gen consoles, and I have to say it looks stunning on the PS4.
All it takes is the swipe of a finger. We connect with friends. We buy the latest gadgets and gear. We find out what's happening in the world. But with that same simple swipe, we cast an increasingly expansive shadow. With each connection, we leave a digital trail that tracks our every move and milestone, our every like and dislike. And it's not just people. Today, all major cities are networked. Urban infrastructures are monitored and controlled by complex operating systems.
In Watch Dogs, this system is called the Central Operating System (CTOS) — and it controls almost every piece of the city's technology and holds key information on all of the city's residents. You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. Now on the hunt for those who hurt your family, you'll be able to monitor and hack all who surround you by manipulating everything connected to the city's network. Access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy... and more.
Great game...Still trying to unlock differant levels but having fun with what I have opened...
Synopsis You've sat warm and comfortable on your couch and watched people onscreen fight for their lives after being pitted against the forces of Mother Nature. They captivated you, and even made you think for a second of what it'd be like to have to rely on only the clothes on your back to make your way out of an extreme environment. "Eh, it wouldn't be
that bad," you've thought, going for another handful of popcorn and pulling the blanket closer, "I could do it." Think again.
In Cabela's Survival: Shadows of Katmai, you might end up eating your words — because the food is few and far between in the Alaskan wilderness. Your plane has crash landed in the middle of one of the most extreme environments on the planet, and you must face the unforgiving forces of nature. Rely on your wits, skill and endurance against the merciless cold, impossible terrain and ever-present threat of starvation. See if you can make it out alive as you encounter some of the world's most deadly predators. Be the last one standing in thrilling shooting galleries, boss face-offs, melee combat and an exciting mix of first- and third-person combat. You can click your heels all you want, but Kansas is a long way off — and you'd better get moving because there's a pack of ravenous beasts hot on your trail.
Top 5!...There is a new difficulty level/mode called "Grounded" and as beautiful as the game was before it looks even better with 60FPS and 1080p, 4 new layers of detail, and twice as much shadow....Really good game if you have not played it on ps3 then its a must have for ps4 its long with a good story you really get your moneys worth fun with some puzzles and challenging strategies 10/10 cant wait for a second installment
The wind blows freely down the corridor of what was once a canyon of skyscrapers populated by million-dollar businesses, employees in suits and citizens on cell phones. A constant stream of yellow taxi cabs used to flow steadily down the asphalt streets. Now, Mother Nature has reclaimed what was hers, and vegetation engulfs the massive cities in patches. A modern pandemic outsmarted our civilized medicine, so our cities now lie abandoned, and what's left of the American population is forced to do whatever it takes to survive. Neighbors who were friends, now kill each other for a loaf of bread — or a rifle — whatever they can get their hands on to help them live another day. In this decimated democracy, two individuals join up to work together and attempt a dangerous journey across the country. Will these two be able to survive the trek — or will they be
The Last of Us?
Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year awards, The Last of Us plunges you into the future, where a brutal and deadly pandemic has ravaged the landscape of what was the United States for 20 years. A survivor who will do whatever it takes, Joel, has been hired to smuggle a 14 year-old girl, Ellie, out of a heavily fortified, military quarantine zone — but what starts as a simple job, quickly turns into an all-out fight for survival on a brutal trek across the country. Carefully blending elements of survival and action, The Last of Us defines a genre by placing you in the heart of the adventure. Rebuilt to harness the power of the PlayStation 4, The Last of Us Remastered features full 1080p high-definition visuals, higher-resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting and numerous gameplay enhancements to truly showcase the cruelty and stunning environments. Plus, Remastered contains all the DLC for the game, including eight new multiplayer maps in the Abandoned Territories and Reclaimed Territories map packs, as well as the critically acclaimed The Last of Us: Left Behind single-player campaign. Every minute of every hour of every day is a struggle to outlive the next person you encounter — do you have the mental and physical strength to make it?
Worth it...The graphics are amazing, from the facial textures to the snowfall, lighting and shadows, this game really uses this latest generation of consoles to bring out detail and atmosphere....If you like the slow burn of exploration and actual meaningful choices (seriously, a small choice in Chapter 1 will snowball by the time you get to chapter 10 and drastically change events, the story, and even outcomes) thiis is a great additon to your ps4 library.
The wind blows through the trees atop the mountain as sunset turns to twilight. One of the most beautiful times of the day is supposed to be one of relaxation and recollection — but this night isn't like most nights. Your friends and you are trapped here in a remote retreat — but you're not alone. Tensions are running high, dread grips the group and no one knows what the next minute will bring. You'll have to fight through the fear to make it through the night. Do you have what it takes to last Until Dawn?
Written in collaboration with cult writers/directors Larry Fessenden and Graham Reznick, Until Dawn plunges you into a remote mountain retreat where a group of eight friends is trapped. Fear permeates the group, and dread lurks around every corner as you are not alone. Every decision matters, as each choice you make has a ripple effect that may save a life — or place someone in grave peril. Branching storylines ensure no two gameplay experiences will be the same as you carve your path to survival. Immerse yourself in the horror with the power of the Killzone Shadow Fall engine that delivers realistic visuals and edge-of-your-seat gameplay. Who will survive?
Good fun...But it definitely did the trick showing me what the new console could do and tiding me over until Destiny, Lord of the Rings: Shadow of Mordor, and Dragon Age: Inquisition are(were) released....Once you beat this game 100% (because it is so fun, you will not stop until you have gotten everything there is, and maybe beat it again with a different karma alignment), you will be able to have more fun with Infamous: First Light, a standalone expansion available on PSN (free with PS+ for Jan 2015!).
One of the most unfortunate truths of humanity is that people fear the things they cannot understand. Society can turn on a dime against people who are different from most and oppression once again becomes a reality. Imagine a future where people with amazing abilities walk among us. Would they be considered heroes and wonders? Or would they strike fear into the hearts of the ordinary — a fear that creates a hostile environment for anyone who is exceptional?
Dive into a ruthless society that hunts down and cages those with extraordinary abilities as Delsin Rowe, who has discovered that he is one of the superhumans and surrounded by hostility. Use everything you have — your wit, your power and your courage — to dodge the Department of Unified Protection, an evil, society-backed organization, intent on eradicating the anomalies. Search for other superhumans on the run and join forces to save those you love — every choice you make changes the future of everyone around you. Will you survive this oppressive force and outlive a tainted society? Or will you succumb to the forces of the D.U.P. and lose everything that matters? The fate of superhumans rests in your hands.
So great...Has a different feel from shadow of mordor and dragon age....Yet it is actually a game, you can mentally get sucked into a world and a life where the strong live large, the common folk get by, the "enemies of the state" are hunted down like animals, and the weak die gruesome and horrific deaths... or perhaps they can have a chance at sweet revenge, but it is all up to you, your observations and points of views at the moments, and most importantly your choices.
No one could possibly imagine that the chaos of today was just the beginning, the start to the dark danger of tomorrow. Who could predict that the terrible pillaging done by the Nilfgaardian Empire, the ravaging of the Northern Kingdoms and the uncertainty of these restless, miserable times are mere child's play compared to the otherworldly threat that looms closer than ever? Don the sword of Geralt of Rivia once again — but this time, the rise and fall of monarchs and battles with legendary monsters are nearly fond memories compared to the danger you now face. This time, that which matters most and those dearest to your heart are in peril. It's time to embark on your most personal quest yet to save your loved ones and protect the world from an ancient threat.
Wrap yourself in a character-driven, open world based upon the Andrzej Sapkowski's seven-book series — a world that teems with life, nonscripted events, unforgettable quests and action-packed adventure. Play as Witcher Geralt of Rivia, a highly skilled monster hunter, as you become immersed in the mature storyline, where every choice you make is meaningful and consequential. As you traverse each varied land on foot, on horseback or by boat, you'll experience different ecosystems, unique cultures and diverse atmospheres. Every decision you make along the way not only impacts your storyline, but affects the world around you — deep interactive environments that depend on your actions. Experience a jaw-dropping combat system that combines real-time player skills with RPG mechanics rooted in character development stats that interact with advanced opponent AI. More than 90 combat animations, a wide range of tactical options, an intensely detailed Witcher Senses system, and combat with unique and dynamic enemies create an amazingly complex battle experience that mimics the sequence of a true huntsman. Concoct potions, elixirs, pyrotechnic devices and more with a highly intuitive Alchemy system, and create items from advanced crafting mechanics that have more influence on gameplay than ever before. This classic, dark fantasy tale not only provides you with an immersive gameplay experience, but also offers stunning RED-powered graphics and untold freedom that truly transports you from your living room to a breathtaking, cinematic Witcher world.
Its fun....Shadows of Mordor is a great sandbox game....I know that this game came out a little bit ago, I waited for the GOTY Edition so I would not have to waste my $$ buying the DL content an it was worth the wait
You are Talion, Ranger of the Black Gate. For what seems like eons, you have guarded the entrance to Mordor, keeping watch over Sauron's undisturbed dwelling place with relative uneventfulness. But in the blink of an eye, everything you hold dear is snatched from your grasp. Your family, your friends — even your very life is taken from you in one fell swoop that leaves your soul desolate and filled with an eternal rage. Resurrected by an unforgiving spirit, you have one purpose to your life, one thing that keeps your heart pumping and your mind from giving in to the relentless grief — vengeance. Prepare yourself to embark on a dogged vendetta that calls upon you to fight your way through Mordor and uncover the truth of the spirit who compels you. This epic tale of revenge and redemption transforms you into the most feared force in the land — the
Shadow of Mordor.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a dynamic game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. The game begins on the night of Sauron's return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance. Based on the player's actions with the in-game Nemesis System, every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal archenemy through the course of the game. As Talion's personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis. This Game of the Year Edition includes a host of Story and Warband Missions, Challenge modes, Runes, Skins and more to enhance your Shadow of Mordor experience.
