Interesting to know there's a DMC HD Collection out for the PS4. I'm guessing it's all games so far in the series? I remember playing a demo or two of it back in the day and being somewhat interested in it, but not enough that I ever grabbed a game in the series.

I'm a big God of War (Pre-PS4 series) fan though: do you think it'd satisfy someone into GoW if they gave it a chance?


Devil May Cry HD on the PS4 is the same release from the PS3/Xbox 360 release so its the first three games only. 4 did get a special edition remaster that’s download only as as separate purchase.


As for a GoW fan approach, I don’t really know. I’m only on the first game and that one doesn’t play smooth at all compared to the OG God Of War. I know they eventually get combo heavy and the game scores you on the damage you dealt and took. If I can wrap the other 2 I can maybe give a better opinion.

Now you mention it I think it was the slower pace and klunkiness of the combat that originally convinced me that I was better off sticking with GoW, so yeah, let me know about the sequels once you've given 'em a bash and let me know how they compare :high-five:


I can now honestly answer you about Devil May Cry as a whole. If your wanting something along the lines of the OG God of War, just skip it, the story and even gameplay aren't really close. If you really want to play a Devil May Cry. The 3rd one is probably the only one worth doing as the story and gameplay is a touch more fun and fleshed out. Hell it had probably the single best Joker riff I've ever seen.

Next up for me, Uncharted 4 and checking out this thing called Auto Chess.

I finished Link Between Worlds and loved every minute. First Zelda game I completed 100% without having to look anything up in a guide.

I also recently finished the main story of Alien: Isolation. That was one of my favorite games of all time. Totally captured the feel of the original movie. I read that it has been blessed as canon to the franchise by 20th Century Fox.

I'm currently cleaning up trophies and trying to get the Platinum trophy, then I'm going to play the DLC that has you play as the crew of the Nostromo.

Apparently there are rumors of a sequel.

Trying to figure out what my next game will be. Probably will finish up Uncharted 3 with my son.

Hey, thanks for getting back to me on that. I'll give it a miss :thumb:

A few days ago I finished the main story (and the Hearts of Stone DLC) of Witcher 3.
I'm gonna rest up a bit, rl and all that, but I will come back asap to finish both Blood & Wine (although I already met Regis) and the rest of the bloody game. I have this word printed permanently on me brain, bloody hell. :P
Slowly, my english is becoming that of a character in these games.

I really have the 0 words to express how much this game is so bloody good. I think that I came across the "this is the greatest game ever created by man" sentence in my mind a few hours into it.The Bloody Baron quest. That *SQUEE* killed me. I was completely unaware of how good the facial microexpressions have become in gaming, I NEVER expected to be emotional about a scene on a freaking videogame. Dudes, the ritual with the rain pounding hard in the night as a background, the Baron and his baby daughter and f*cking Geralt looking like he's really there, seeing and feeling the pain of the man. Exquisite voice acting, by everyone, but the Baron was out of this world in this game. I think of Witcher 3 and I almost immediately think of the drunk, fat baron sobbing at the rain, lamenting the curses that were thrown at him by... himself. He's as real life as it gets in a medieval fantasy fiction role playing videogame, imho. Terrific moment, and absolutely unforgetable.
But more than drool over this masterpiece, I will only leave a word to anyone interested in getting into the Witcher franchise (lookin at you, jd :D ). Please, read the books first. After I finished the game I finaly went online and got the feel of the people about this franchise. So, so, so many peeps regret not having read the books first. And it is quite obvious why. The third game in particular, while it is equally fun to play and discover the world, well, it can't be helped that book-readers will get a huge kick from stuff that goes over the head of the gamers-only. Like the Menno Coehoorn running joke :lol: or why there's such an emotional weight to the The Last Wish quest. Its an amazing quest by itself, but if you have read the entire series, it will be hard to not feel cheesy sh*t while saying those words to Yen. :lol:
Still, the biggest plot point (and on that, I also played the 2 previous games in order, after the readings) is the fact that a huge, huge and I do mean the biggest twist in the Geralt saga is pretty much given knowledge on W3. I'm talking about HUGE SPOILER FOR THE BOOKS and MINOR SPOILERS FOR WITCHER 3 :hm: Ciri being the daughter of Emhyr. You see, in the novels, and until the last book's final chapters you "know" that Ciri's dad is a once-cursed and once-helped by Geralt guy called Duny. A pretty sympathetic secondary character that is supposed to have died a few years before the story. Well, the readers - and Geralt - discover in the final part of the story that Duny is Emhyr, who once was cursed by a usurper and kicked off from Nilfgaard. Something like that. It's super gross to put 2 and 2 together and realise that the dad wants to have kids with his own daughter. Its just messed up and a complete pull of the rug.
In the first hours of W3, you know that Ciri is his daughter, and the name Duny is nowhere to be heard (in my playthrough, so far). Maybe if you forget about the game, you can still be wowed. :P


Its a perfect game to me, its a fantasy rpg (my favourite genre) that surpasses everything I could expect from a "game". Just going for hours saying C'mon, Roach and discover the world is worth the price. I will play this in the years to come, well, until i forget my own name, I think.

I’ve been playing a ton of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, the last few months. I find it rather addictive.
