I dont have it, so I cannot speak to it directly. However, all of my friends talk about it and love it. Most often they mention days where there are just amazing deals.

I agree with Roco that Overwatch is one of the best PS games I've ever played. Especially if you're into shooters where it's not just about shooting. The MOBA/teamwork tactical aspect of it and different heroes with different abilities makes for a lot of very unique games. It is the best when played with a group of friends on your team though, as communication is the key to success.

My PSN ID is TheEndless7 if anyone ever wants to add me.

PSNow and PSVUe are two different things. I've used both. PSVUE is a cable TV alternative with a bunch of non local channels. It seems decent. But I have nothing to compare it to. It's completely different from the FIRETV box I have, although I can stream PSVUE through the Firetv. I honestly use it mostly because it was the cheapest way I could get the racing and hockey channels I wanted with little extra. Right now for like 55$/month you can get like 100 channels INCLUDING HBO, showtime,and the NFL network. And there are various packages below that. The user interface is not very good and a pain to navigate. But the video quality has always been good. While you do get the local fox sports affiliate, you do not get any local channels. ((Although it does give you ABC/NBC/FOX on demand)) SO you need an internal dish for things like the Packers.

PSNOW is a streaming video game service that offers around 150ish PS3 titles to stream on your PS4. It works pretty well, but if your connection isn't strong it's prone to skip and lag a bit. Usually nothing that pausing the game and waiting a few moments wont fix. It does have some great titles on it like Red Dead Redemption and all the Borderlands game and I think every Telltale game. It's a bit pricey for what you get. Buying it for a month here or there to beat a couple of the games that come on monthly may be worth it. The library has been expanding more in the last few months than it seems like it did all of last year. So I'm hoping they add in even more.

I'd like to see PS1 and PS2 games added to but i have no idea how feasible that is.

Steam is just essentially a digital retailer of video games. You can log into their store and buy games to download and play. You can also set up friend lists and see what friends are playing and if, say, they're in a game of Battlefield you'll have the option to join them. They do offer a lot of great sales here and there but it tends to mostly be on older stuff.

How does shareplay work? I have never done it.[/quote]

I've never done it, either. But as I understand so long as one person owns the game and has PS Plus (at least I think they have to have PS+), you connect with another person who doesn't have to own the game and they can play it. You're booted after an hour, but you can just re-connect and get another hour. But maybe someone who has done it before could correct me on it.

My online name is "mattresspad".

I asked one of my buddies about shareplay last night and they said that the other person is able to watch from their seat, but they are not able to play it. That makes sense.

Steam is a service (marketplace?) where you can buy games digitally, and download them at your leisure to replay them anytime.

Where it truly is amazing, however is the "Wishlist" feature, (I want these 8 games) and it will then notify you when they go on sale.

You can also 'friend' people on Steam and find out when they are playing (and what they are playing). So if you want to co-op with buddies it makes it easier.

I buy all of my games from either Amazon, Green Man Gaming, GOG or Steam.

If the video doesn't play at the right point just skip to the 27 minute mark.

Recently got a PS4, and received Skyrim for Christmas. No, I've never played it, even after all these years since it was originally released. I know where my free time is going after the next few months.

I also got a PS4 (on Black Friday), & apologies if this title has already been touched on, but man is Call of Duty WW2 good. I'm awful at online multiplayer shooters, so I'm still 'that guy' that likes a good single-player campaign. The story is well told, the action is great, and the game is just flat-out fun.

I know WW2 games have been done almost to death, but imo this is a well-done iteration. There's a nice mix of styles of levels & combat. I've beaten the game but am replaying it. Highly recommended if WW2 shooters are your thing.

Playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild, since we finally picked up a Switch a few weeks ago.

I don’t really know if I’m supposed to be where I am (since I haven’t unlocked the map for this region yet), either the game throws itself open at you, or the open world mechanics take over unexpectedly. I’m not sure if I love or hate how I’m playing: I don’t know if there’s something I’m supposed to have done already...but I’m worried I’m going to stumble back on to the critical story progression.

I also dove back into Overwatch on the PS4 a few months ago. I usually get into only one shooter in a console generation, and I’m glad this was the one I chose: each of the players are unique, and other players (mostly) figure out how to make the most of their character’s skill sets.

TooLiveBrew, you may also want to check out Battlefield1 and maybe Battlefield4. BF1 is a WW1 shooter. I used to play COD but I wasn't any good and didn't like the insults with the online community. With Battlefield, kill/death rate isn't crucial and certain classes get a a good amount of points for helping teammates.

If you want to see how a game plays, download Twitch (free).

I know I mentioned it earlier in the thread, but see Captain Shock's youtube videos if you're into Call of Duty. Great for strategy and map awareness which will definitely help your kill/death rate.

Does BF1 have a single player campaign? WW1 would be a really interesting & new story to explore

Yes. It's great, if not a little frustrating at times.

Cool! Anyone have an opinion if the BF1 Revolution edition of the game is worth the extra ~$10? I wouldn't play multiplayer, but I think it includes some additional missions/levels? Or are they only for multiplayer?

Thanks... probably going to pick this up over the weekend.

Does anyone on here have the Nintendo switch? If so I am curious to hear some reviews as I am very inclined to pull the trigger on one this month.

We got one a few months ago. Love it. We play it pretty much on the TV only, but it's still a lot of fun. Basically all the Nintendo exclusive games are great.

I've had it for less than a month, but the one game I've started playing on the thing (Zelda...see my post from 12/27) is great. I've heard good things about the new Mario game, Splatoon 2, and the Mario + Rabbids turn-based shooter as well.

Finished up (for the most part) Assassin's Creed: Origins on the XBox One. Now moving onto COD WWII. Very busy, lately, and my son doesn't always want to play multiplayer. LOL
