Apparently new generation games will go for$ 69.99 others will go as low as $49.99 wich would i assume are ps4 backward capable. I read a article from like gamerant or ign about it a week ago. If games go for 70 i hope they do away with all these editions that give us extra stuff wich fetch like 200 dollars . Apparently spider man miles morales will be on ps4 as well as ps5. I usually wait like 3 years to upgrade so im in no rush to drop big money because of a rush. I just got a ps4 pro last year wich im replying to you on. A few friends at church who are PlayStation all the way even say this next generation will be to expensive. And these are people who buy Japanese imports from Japan. When assassins creed origin's was revealed ubisoft offered a edition for $ 800 bucks. Sorry but 800 bucks for a game with extra perks and a resin statue no thanks. I believe there doing it again for assassins creed Valhalla this November. This whole 5 different editions bundle shit needs to stop

^Yeah, I think I'm out with this gen. I don't have the money or space for another system and I'm not a hardcore gamer. My XBox One is mostly for Hitman and Mortal Kombat (the latter of which I'm not even good at). That's really not enough to justify a system.

I mainly bought this for spider man mk uncharted and a few nes titles like the castlevania collection For $9.99 its like 6 games. I just got tomb raider for $2.99 . Waiting till black friday for god of war 4 to drop even though its $20 as a greatest hits. Im still up in the air for fire pro wrestling. Final fantasy is a series i wanna try but theres now 16 numbered games for that as of the ps event and i also dont wanna invest time into it. Assassins creed already has me. Still playing Odyssey

^Hey, do you have a recommendation for a good WWE game for the XBox One or 360 gen? I haven't played one in years, but I'd like something that includes at least some of the top 80s/90s guys. I heard the last couple years of the main game were awful.

Well there wont be a 2k21 since 2k20 has hooooorible bugs. I mean its dirt cheap so up to you. I will say 2k18 and 2k19 are solid so those you should get

Only seven weeks left for Destiny 2 before Beyond Light comes out...and I haven't touched the vanilla Leviathan raid aside from accessing the one area for part of a quest. Hopefully I can get things going this weekend because I would like the Legend of Acrius shotgun (although I need to do the raid more than once to complete it). Also need to do Pit of Heresy and get all kinds of things in there.

I'm relatively close to finally getting Malfeasance (need motes/wins and then enemy player kills). Really need to get Broadsword. Going to try and grind for Loaded Question. Doubt I'll get Exit Strategy, Python, Revoker, Recluse, or a number of other weapons. Should be able to get Xenophage fairly soon. Dunno about Izanagi. Hopefully can get Whisper and Outbreak this week.

But on the upside, I just got Savathun's Eyes from the Whisper mission with only a video guide and only needed Stompees on the last part. Getting the ones in Prophecy should not be especially difficult but I'll save that for later.

Cool. I'm sure I could get one of those at a good price.

So Title Update 11 dropped for Division 2, bringing the Summit mode (which is cruelly-but-accurately being called Kenly Tower, in reference to the very disappointing Kenly College) and gear transmogrification. Players can now make all gear except exotics look like any other gear they have/collect (except exotics); weapons are excluded from this.

And of course there are problems, such as some gear not being unlocked even though it is possessed (there are a couple masks that don't register even though I have them in my character's inventory), and even worse, some gear mods are actually being deleted by the game for no known reason other than "lol bugz." Summit itself is a rather mixed bag (loot allocation is one type for entire mode; level design is ho-hum; forced directives being love-or-hate; etc). I took the time to log into each character and change up some of their gear's appearances so that I'm happier with it.

But the biggest news is that Warlords of New York is on sale right now for half-price, so I think it's time I grabbed it. As such I deleted nearly all of my main character's inventory and a chunk of my stash to make room for the eventual pile of level 40 loot that I collect once I'm finished with all of the expansion's story and dig into the new endgame. (I also decided to run around grabbing random super-basic gear on my level 5 alt for extra transmog options; I'll delete my second alt's extra gear eventually when I'm ready for that WONY run; still slowly working on Hardcore mode but that takes a backseat to Destiny 2's grind).

Speaking of Destiny 2, I have the Malfeasance quest's second-to-last step roughly halfway finished, because I got immensely lucky tonight and didn't lose any motes in Gambit and won the match by a country mile. Also got very lucky and received two rare Black Armory shaders from dismantles, so I can now enjoy some very nice extra color palettes.

But I did myself a favor and went solo into the Whisper mission for the five Savathun Eyes in there and actually managed to get through the first part (which is just platforming) with only a tiny bit of trouble (last jump for the final eye). I got to hear a boss's menacing voice again and loved it. Now I need to get some friends and do the mission proper.

Speaking of, I am planning to do the vanilla Leviathan raid to get my Legend of Acrius exotic quest progressed. Also going to grind out the 25 survival matches for Broadsword starting this weekend so that I can enjoy it just a little bit before Beyond Light seals everything off.

Currently playing tomb raider 2013. Loving it. I never played this on the original PlayStation in the 90's. I'm waiting for the other 2 to go down in price to finish the trilogy

Working through Grim Fandango on the Vita. Trying to get the platinum so I have to play with tank controls, which is not that bad actually.

Picked up Civilization VI for the PS4 and lost my first game haha. Been a huge Civ fan since the beginning and this is the first that I've played on a console first. I have Civ1 for SNES and Civ2 for PS1 but I was playing them on PC first.

This is an interesting version of the game, can't wait to sink hundreds of hours into it, though most will probably come on PC later.

Used to love that game as a kid; the Robert Frost balloon was hilarious even though I didn't know who he was then. I really need to get around to playing the PS4 version that I grabbed a while back.

Also, PlayStation Network has been finicky as hell today and I can barely logon to any games. Many of the issues are being resolved but I might have to call it an early night this time around.

And I'll have to pass on some of the discounted games yet again while only getting a couple of deals. I keep thinking about getting Ghost Recon Breakpoint used on eBay but a redditor commented that the game is basically built for co-op and not really for solo players, so I'm yet again holding off.

But last night I had a great Destiny 2 time. Clanmates invited me to help them do a raid, nobody responded to our LFG post (but that might have possibly been because one member was having Internet issues so he might not have even been able to see responses). Since no raid, we wondered what to do, so we settled for helping me through some quests while another member went to a store to get some things. We ended up doing both Prophecy and Pit of Heresy dungeons which allowed me to get some good loot (including Xenophage at last, so I can now slaughter players for Malfeasance); while doing Prophecy we also got the last few Eyes I needed so now I just need to kill the secret enemy when it's revealed in a few weeks and that's the Forerunner title earned.

Best of all is one player is a beast at competitive and has agreed to help me earn reputation in that mode and thus unlock one of the best guns in the game, even if I'll only enjoy it for a little while. But hey, I might actually get to use something really cool and fun that I never thought I'd be able to get.

And I just finished downloaded Ghostbusters: The Video Game (the one from last gen) in all its remastered glory. Not a perfect game but the closest thing we'll have to Ghostbusters 3 until Afterlife is out (pretty sure that hasn't released yet).

Division 2 --- started Warlords of New York earlier this week, finished it a few hours ago. The fights against Kajika and Keener were not to my liking (skill spam from Keener was very frustrating, I don't look forward to going through that mission for leftover intel and commendations). Game takes forever to load enemies so I'll periodically get attacked/killed by invisible baddies. Not a fan of the seasonal content model so the current thing(s) going on annoy me. Also having difficulty getting SHD caches in the open world (only a handful in each zone show up so I'm missing the rest).

On the plus side, I'm liking how much more powerful the gear and weapons are, and the vendor all week at Haven has been selling the FAMAS, my favorite assault rifle, and with a solid roll. Going to steadily clear everything out over time and then go back, hopefully with a team of helpful players, and clean up older content.

Destiny 2 --- Big updates here.

My Redrix's Broadsword quest is nearly done. I should hopefully get it by Tuesday evening, Wednesday evening at latest because I only need six more daily bounties (the "additional" ones Shaxx offers don't count, to my displeasure). But I can finally put that shit to rest. I'm almost to Fabled rank in Survival to get Recluse but can't get the final victory I need, so hopefully a clanmate can help me out (he's madman for competitive).

But the one thing that's had my heart pounding like the final girl in a horror film is the Malfeasance quest. The last step needs 25 enemy player kills (either you/allies killing invaders or you/allies getting kills as invader) and also killing the entire enemy team in one go (either once yourself or three times from an ally). I almost got this first try last night using my Golden Gun super attack to shred the enemy team but I couldn't find the fourth player before my timer expired. Tried a couple times earlier today but only managed one or two kills. I try again and use GG to delete three huddled players and engage the nearby fourth player. He almost got away but thankfully I managed to take him down with my Jotunn! Now I just need about a dozen more player kills and the quest will be finished tonight! That will then leave me free to do other quests and earn rare rewards before they are removed.

Easily one of my proudest moments in this game, alongside taking out a fresh invader to earn Lumina during that quest. Saved the clip for future enjoyment and to share with friends.

Rambo is such a weird fit, but then I guess there's a lot of those now.

They got sly for the voice. I mean i agree its a odd choice but the 80's action fan in me is excited because we have terminator robocop and Rambo in the same game johnny cage was based on van damn because originally midway now neather realm wanted a van damn game in the early 90's. They have to be shelling out big bucks for guys like Rambo for licensing . I tweeted ed boon for Nitara for mk 12. Last game she was in was Armageddon in 2007 so 13 year's ago.

Unlocked the Forerunner title in Destiny 2, going to try and grab Dredgen since I'm close. The final Interference mission was something to behold (managed to get some nice screenshots before it ended; gonna have to grab a bunch of screenshots from Festival of the Lost and a number of other places before the Great Vaulting happens).

The "Games of a Generation" sale is active right now and I will have to get the first Injustice game (because I'd be insane to pass up a complete edition at $3). Might also get LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.

The Trailer for rain for mk 11 is out. Finally the rain fanbase can shut there autistic asses up. I swear they and milleena fans are toxic to the point they made threats to ed boon. Guh i hate being a fan now because people get stupid making threats to developers to get there way. Apparently people were threatning insomniac for changing peter parkers face to a new actor for the sony spider man game. Wtf is wrong with fanbases now?

Clanmate helped me out a bunch in Destiny 2, so now I am closer to getting Izanagi's Burden, Wish-Ender, but since we didn't have a third player to help we didn't even attempt to get Outbreak Perfected. I'm going to have to LFG that and another quest. I also got a nice new ship.

In Division 2, I have seven weeks left on the season but I don't have a powerful build yet so I doubt I'll be able to grind the high XP content to boost my season rank and unlock everything (and I'd need the season pass to get the exclusive items anyway, only a few of which I actually like). We'll see how far I get.

Probably going to buy Dragon's Crown Pro since it's on sale currently.
