I tried Enslaved quickly. I admit my internet is garbage. And the game ran poorly. It was slightly choppy as if the framerate was 20 or so and there was a good 1/2 or so input delay. Sucks but not surprising for my case.

Counter-Strike

...if you play with people that are good of course. I think any game that has like 5v5 (or something in that vain) with a round based life system is always more tactical. And they are always my favorite types of games. Counter-Strike, Last of Us, Gears of War... loved all of those. Never touch the modes where you can respawn in a round.

I have absolutely no idea how anybody can like this service. Why pay an obscene amount of money just to rent the game when you may as well just buy it cheaper? Not to mention the fact that you'll have guaranteed access to the game and wont have to worry about your internet connection being fast enough.

This service was designed with morons in mind. Sony wants to rob you, and I cant believe some people seem totally okay with that. Just look at N4G. That place is Sony fanboy central, and even a lot of them don't seem to like PSNow very much.

I don't really think anyone is giving it a pass. Everyone is complaining that the pricing is ridiculous. Even on the PSBlog where you will more than likely see everyone praise everything Sony does they are complaining about it.

Hopefully no one will use it and they will adjust the pricing to fix that. Hopefully it doesn't just die becuase I'd be interested.

I can totally see Sony leaving the pricing as-is, but then adding in one or two free streaming Now games per month into PS+, along with perhaps some rotating discounts.

I'd be down for that. But then I'd never use Now if they did that either. I really wish they just bundled it in with PS+. Extra 5 bucks or something and you get unlimited (or limited) streaming of games. Like a game a month maybe I dunno. I'd consider doing that.

And I was mistaken about Zeno Clash 2. It's only 5 bucks for 90 days which sounds great to me. Still, I can't get over F1 2013...50 bucks!!! for 90 days. That's crazy.

Looks like a fun movie. If you (anyone) had to describe it to another superhero movie... would the closest be Hellboy 2? That's the vibes I got from the trailer and I can only hope it's as good as that movie.

Thinking about trying Zeno Clash 2. Think it was 15 bucks for 90 days.

But, overall, I agree with most everyone. The pricing is ridiculous. Darksiders 2 for 30 bucks for 90 days? F1 2013 for 50 bucks for 90 days? What in the fuck?

Also, I really want the ability to purchase endless streaming of a game. Say I rent it for 4 hours and like it and want to have all the time in the world to play it... that would be nice. Not expecting that to be an option tho so maybe a subscription service would be nice although I don't think I'd pay for that.

These are cool but I wish people would just post these in the PS4 Share thread. Keep it going like the PC screenshot thread. Especially now with a couple of games have specific photo modes that make you want to take photos.

And I agree with spray... the game itself is a good movie (tho perhaps he meant that as an insult). It was good as it is and doesn't really need to be a movie unless they change it and, then, what's the point.

Because it's a good story that is worth experiencing, even if you don't play video games. How many people read A Song of Ice and Fire before they watched Game of Thrones? How many decided to read the books after watching Game of Thrones? And the barrier of entry to reading a book is significantly lower than the barrier of entry to playing TLoU for a casual/non-gamer.

Also I'd argue that if you believe the story of TLoU was cliche, so is every other story we've experienced in our lifetimes.

That's the problem with only quoting part of someone's opinion. You completely miss the point of what I was saying.

I feel like so many video game movies are announced and I never see them come out... so It's hard to care about any of these.

And I agree with spray... the game itself is a good movie (tho perhaps he meant that as an insult). It was good as it is and doesn't really need to be a movie unless they change it and, then, what's the point. The story is kind of cliche but the way Naughty Dog was able to make the characters so believable in the game was what made it so good. Which isn't really going to be as much of an accomplishment in a movie.
