just got the compilation and started the first game. i hope it proves me wrong but so far it seems like someone thought the tomb raider protag wasn't cocky or male enough

just played through the first few chapters of the new one - seems like more of the same as far as gameplay goes so far but holy cow the visuals are amazing

I think I'm going to save the new one for neo.
Made a start on the remastered trilogy though, even that looks pretty stunning tbh (only ever played maybe 20% of number 2 before this so they're basically all new to me). Number one is kind of a slog but not that bad really, it feels very much like a PS2 game and maybe that's easier to stomach now than it was on first release.

i have never played one of these games but i just learned that my friend's older brother was the 'technical art director', so that's cool for him.

a few hours in now and i still can't believe how good this game looks - i spent like five minutes driving in and out of a stream just to watch mud get washed off the jeep's wheels. it is genuinely incredible in places.
gameplay remains pretty solidly ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ though - run, shoot, cutscene, run, explore, repeat. uncharted 2 remains one of the most end to-end exciting games i've ever played but it feels like the formula is wearing pretty thin here even with the addition of some new mechanics

can someone explain the breathless praise this series gets? never played it but checked out some youtubes over the years and it really just looks like the dumbest shit ever

They're kind of boring to play but the stories are relatively well told, and there are some great setpieces -- like the train sequence in 2.

I enjoy the gameplay. But I don't know that you need to play multiple iterations of this game really. Seem to remember thinking Uncharted 2 was the best one.

I had fun with Uncharted 4 even though the gameplay is pretty repetitive, but it's bs that you can't play the online multiplayer without PS+. is that standard now with sony/ps4?

I just reached the twist of the first game, and wtf, does Naughty Dog think they're making The Last of Us or something??

i just played this game like a year or two ago and i don't remember the twist at all these games are imo not very good games and not very good stories
― Mordy, Friday, 27 July 2018 19:30 (two years ago) link
I started the second game and despite a pretty dodgy beginning (among which is an unremarkable stealth section), it's an incredible improvement on the first game, considering I played half of it in a single night.

Sucked into finish this last night, and it was at its best when it was at its most breezy. That is to say, the final boss fight was not fun, and I had to drop the difficulty down to easy.

same here. i think i actually didn't finish it, it was so obviously the end and was so not fun

I finished U3 even though it had some levels that nearly induced me to rage-quit (nb: I did turn the difficulty down to easy to beat them), and was RELIEVED that it didn't have the same endgame difficulty spikes of U1 and U2. Still, can't wait to sell the disc.
BUT, I've started U4 and the level of polish is magnitudes better (though maybe it's just the target-lock talking). The writing has always been good, but now the story is a lot more fleshed out.
And note to Josh: at least so far, U4's most nostalgic scene is more affecting if you've actually played any one of them for a little while (the stories for previous games you can just google, since the plots have been paper-thin).

That's what I heard. I don't have U4 yet, but I did buy the collection of the previous ones in preparation.
How is the rebooted Tomb Raider series on Ps4? It was not even remotely on my radar until the last couple of weeks, as anticipation for the new one builds. But Rise was supposed to be good, right? More or less the same idea as Uncharted (or vice versa)?

Is this game about rapper name of Drake and how he got his fortune, y/n

Finished U4, and the finale is quite good! Minor spoilers below.
SPOILERI didn't like the boss fight, but unlike the frustratingly bad ones from U1 or U2, it was because it was a little underwhelming. The story climax was definitely fistpump worthy. Epilogue a little meh, though I definitely enjoyed giving a dog a second treat.
