Thanks guys, I haven't played a mainstream title since PS2 days, stuff like Witcher3, Bloodborne, DarkSouls3, Uncharted just doesn't interest me. I will get Last Guardian next month though since I loved Ico and SotC. I'm a sucker for the artsy-fartsy stuff.

I think I'm mostly looking forward to

Thumper 8-)



Bound :oops:



and Abzu :ugeek:

Race the Sun (Apocalypse mode) is also excellent.

Only game I've bothered completing for yonks. If it had somehow been released on the Nes it'd be my favourite Nes game.

Played about an hour of "Everybody's Gone To The Rapture" (free on PS+) Painful. Like wading through treacle listening to The Archers.

Thoroughly pleased with Bound. There isn't a whole lot to it gameplay wise, which is why it's so mesmerizing. The audio/visual experience is so breathtaking I'm fully engrossed the second I hit start. In a lot of ways that's what I like about Rez, one of my all time favorites. Your character dances and while that may not be for everyone, I have taught dance for nearly 20 years so I can appreciate the motion capture and animation :awe:

Equally happy with Resogun. I wasn't sure I'd enjoy this so much since it's not a straightforward shmup, but man was I wrong. One word: addicting. The graphics are superb, I've only played on easy mode with one of the ships but there was still a fair bit of challenge for me, especially when it comes to saving the humans :oops: For $4.99 (PS+ sale price) I couldn't ask for a better bargain.

I also downloaded Everybody's gone to the Rapture for free, it looks dreadful indeed. :palm:

I almost bought Gravity Rush, Hotline Miami 2 (should probably start with HM1 first), Astebreed, and Jamestown+ but I'm going to hold off until I'm bored with what I have so far.

P.S. THUMPER IS TOO DAMN GOOD!!! :twisted:

Lovin Thumper as well, especially in VR.
Rez Infinte in VR is mindblasting! Living the 80s dream feeling like in Tron.

Jamestown is a nice little game :)

I see that you can get a slim PS4 and a game for like £200.

I'm almost embarrassed not to buy one.

It would be nice to get a new console, but I barely play stuff any more, even the cabs.

That last guardian looks gorgeous mind, I loved Ico (but got bored big time with Colossus), we'll see how people like it later on this month I guess.

It's funny that most games pictured in the above posts are relatively small and graphically not very complex - you wonder why you need a powerhouse like PS4 for that :problem:

They were on sale for $13USD/ea last night so I grabbed them.
I'm enjoying these $10-20 artsy games a lot, nice change of pace from the shmup PCB market :lol:

Guys, the port is being handled by DotEmu. They're absolutely terrible.
