God of War didn't pick up for me until about half way through the game.

Interesting, did you end up loving it? It grabbed me from the get go. My only disappointment initially was the scope (coming from GoW3), but I ended up loving the more personal story with a small cast.

For me, it is ageing really well. Recently listened to the (in my opinion incredible) soundtrack and it recalled a couple of real goosebump moments for me, as well as the adventure as a whole. Plenty of games where I enjoy my time but kind of forget them in a couple of months. God of War definitely is not one of those for me.

I actually dont know how I feel about the ending. It was a little anticlimactic but I think what bothered me more was the companion story with the kid. I didn't really care for him as a character.

What do you mean by the scope?

I think God of War is a fantastic game with a fantastic story. That being said it's not perfect. There were a lot things that you can tell are being saved for the sequel (Thor, Odin, Asgard, etc.) so the ending was bit anti-climatic. I also felt that some of son's personality changes were really abrupt and could have been handled a bit better.

I did just start Spider Man and I'm enjoying that more than God of War overall. Both are great games, just personal preference. I'm mostly a Xbox guy but I bought a PS4 just for those two games and it was totally worth it. I do still feel that RDRII was the Game of the Year for 2018.

From what I played so far, I LOVE god of war.

Definitely my favorite of the series and it does an incredible job of engaging me on an emotional level. Even had me tearing up in parts. Its some powerful stuff.

Well, God of War 3 was the end of a trilogy where you slay major boss after boss, but 2 wasn't all that different in that regard. Or even the other GoW games. GoW 2018 is in many ways (to me) a surprisingly restrained story with a small cast. The focus wasn't getting some artifact to save the world or killing some major god, it was ultimately a father and son fullfilling the last wish of the mother.

I personally loved the ending, I think all the themes of the game come together really well. And the potential for the sequels is huge. This is clearly part of a trilogy, but for a series so big and successful like this, I don't mind that.

No Man's Sky BEYOND Launch Trailer

Can't wait to try out VR and improvement on MP is not a day too late.

My PSVR has been down for the count. I can't get the firmware to update because it's throwing an error code pertaining to the USB slot on the processor unit. I ordered a new processor because I really want to try NMS in VR (I've never played it). I hope that fixes the problem I having with the system.

That's to bad, hopefully you get it sorted out.

Apparently the VR implementation is something else in NMS. The game has grown ALOT since it's somewhat let's say rocky release.  :lol I urge you to try it out even if you can't get VR to work.

I'm looking forward to this update but it'll most likely bring a host of new bugs they won't fix just like the last update.

I love No Mans Sky, jumped after Next launched and had a great time with it. I also love VR, so will check it out. But I really am curious how it will perform on base PS4, because some planets brought my PS4 on it's knees on normal mode last year. On the other hand, Sony has requirements for a game to be able to launch on VR and the previews on PS4
a couple of months back have been good/great (though I assume those sessions were on the pro).

No Mang's Sky Beyond has released. Surprise fucking surprise it's buggy as shit. I haven't seen the game this buggy and I played it at launch and right when the other big updates came out. I've had several crashes including two that locked up my computer. Nice.

The people over at r/PSVR don't seem to be having issues other than having to recalibrate their peripherals. Maybe it's just the PC version.

Just played a session, didn't have any issue other than a random ship floating around at the player hub.  :lol

Haven't tried VR yet though.

They're having crashes on consoles too but I think it seems to be mostly when players go into that multiplayer hub thing.

I never had a problem with the previous updates but this one has crashed on me 5 or 6 times today. I'm one of the unlucky ones. I'm not too disappointed because this happened to lost of other players on the other updates. I'm sure there will be many patches coming out in the next couple weeks. Hopefully Hello Games will fix the major issues.

Edit: Interesting. I was just playing Dishonored Death of the Outsider and my computer locked up just like it's been doing with No Mang's Sky all day. Looks like the problem is on my end. I haven't been playing PC games lately. Today I installed an optional driver for my Radeon R9 290X. I'll go back to the other driver and see how this shitstem behaves.

Edit: Well the problem was my computer was overheating so I cleaned out all the DUST inside & outside. I had No Mang's Sky & Dishonored: Death of the Outsider running for about 3 & a half hours with no crashing.
