Which PS4 Games Do You Regret Buying?

Over a year has passed since the PlayStation 4 came out on November 15, 2013. Since then, it’s seen its share of successes and failures. Many games, both big-name and indie, have been released for the PS4 over the past year. Fans debate all the time about what the best games are, but which PS4 purchases do players most regret?

Some users on Reddit got together to discuss this, and some common patterns emerged. Destiny, Watch Dogs, and Driveclub came up a lot. All three games were highly-anticipated, with bold promises for what the new generation of gaming was capable of. Destiny and Watch Dogs were also widely considered disappointments, and Driveclub suffered from multiplayer issues that took a while to resolve. Whether it’s a result of too much hype, misleading marketing, or unrealistic expectations, many PS4 users regret purchasing these two games.

To a lesser extent, Thief and Battlefield 4 were also named often. Thief got a lot of mixed reviews, and the general complaint from fans is that it just wasn’t fun. Battlefield 4, meanwhile, was game plagued with so many glitches and bugs that many people found it unplayable. On a similar note, several people regret purchasing Assassin’s Creed Unity.

Knack, one of the launch titles, also came up for reasons similar to those that led to its negative reviews—its high difficulty and lack of innovation turned off fans who expected something different from it.

Other games were mentioned, of course, but these are the ones about which many fans are in agreement: Destiny, Watch Dogs, Driveclub, Thief, Battlefield 4, Assassin’s Creed Unity, and Knack.

What about you? Which PS4 purchases do you most regret making? Do you disagree with the negativity toward any of the titles mentioned above?

Bungie Removes Second Loot Cave

October 14, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Destiny-loot-cave

If you were one of the many Destiny players who made use of the second loot cave, we have some bad news. In Bungie’s words, “the Fallen have also retreated from their hold over the Rocket Yard to discuss a new takeover plan.”

Yes, the latest Destiny update eliminated the loot cave. It also fixed several bugs and re-balanced weapons with several changes:

  • Auto Rifles have 2% less base damage, a 1.25 headshot bonus, and lower stability
  • Hand Cannons have better in-air accuracy
  • Scout Rifles have 6% more base damage, increased damage dealt to aliens, better target acquisition, and more recoil tuning
  • Shotguns have 20% less base damage when used at their maximum range
  • The Shot Package perk’s cone of fire is wider, and you can’t use both it and the Rangefinder perk
  • The Vex Mythoclast has 34% less base damage and a 1.50 headshot bonus
  • The Pocket Infinity’s Enhanced Battery perk is gone, with the Speed Reload perk in its place

For the full details about everything that was fixed in the update, check out the official announcement. As far as we know, the stairs still work, but maybe it’s just a matter of time.

Now Destiny has “Loot Stairs,” Too

October 8, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Destiny-loot-stairs

Remember Destiny’s loot caves? Well, now you’ve got another option: loot stairs! Operating on the same principle as the loot caves, a set of stairs in the Cosmodrone on Earth has enemies that will infinitely respawn as long as you stay far enough back until you’re ready to collect your rewards. It’s a great way to build up Legendary engrams and other great loot.

Youtube user MinistryOfGeeks has uploaded a useful video explaining how to find the loot stairs. The one negative point, as he demonstrates in his video, is that every 7-10 minutes, a ship spawns above the area and releases new enemies outside the building, which prevents the enemies from spawning on the stairs. You’ll need to get rid of these enemies in order to continue using the loot stairs.

Check out the video for the full details.

So, will you be making use of Destiny’s loot stairs?

A Second Destiny Loot Cave Appears

September 26, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Destiny-loot-cave

Well, the loot cave didn’t just appear. Like the previous popular loot-farming point in Destiny, this cave in Old Earth’s Rocketyard is a location where you can kill respawning enemies over and over again to get a lot of rare drops in a short period of time. All players have to do is keep their distance, and the enemies will continue to appear.

The original loot cave, found at Skywatch, was patched in a recent Destiny update. We bet this new one won’t be around much longer, either.

In the meantime, though, players can follow the lead of PS4Trophies and collect as much loot as they want.

Fans are divided on this issue. Some support Bungie and say this needs to be fixed. Others would happily spend hours outside the loot cave. Where do you fall? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

These Modders Have Infinite Ammo in Destiny

September 12, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Destiny Earth

Destiny has only been out for a few days, but already players are looking for exploits. Some have found a way to mod the game and get infinite ammo, which they’ve displayed in uploaded videos. None of these videos include guides, so we don’t know how they ended up with unlimited ammo, and they don’t seem inclined to give out that information.

One user has closed comments on his video of the mod. Considering that the comments on the other player’s video are mainly arguments over whether or not it’s okay to cheat like this, we aren’t surprised they’d rather stay out of it.

And so, the countdown begins. Do you think this sort of mod/hack is acceptable in a game like Destiny, and how long do you think it will be before Bungie cracks down on this situation?

The Destiny Alpha Has Been Extended

June 16, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Destiny ship

As we learned at E3, an alpha test for Destiny was made available to PS4 owners. It was scheduled to run from June 12 to June 15, but it’s not over yet.

Bungie kept fans updated through Twitter on the status of the alpha. The servers went up and down all day as the company tested various featured, including Expert Mode for the beta (which starts July 17). We aren’t sure how long the alpha will remain available for.

The alpha gives players access to the Tower, which is the social hub area where you can buy items and take on challenges, and Old Russia, a location on Earth to complete missions on. There is also a mobile companion app for you to try out, although it’s currently available only on Android. The iOS version isn’t out yet.

Fans have responded positively to the alpha and the amount of content it has, which makes it all the most exciting to know that this alpha contains less than 10% of the content in the full game. Don’t forget, Destiny is huge.

If you’re interested in picking up Destiny, remember that PS3 and PS4 players will get exclusive content, including a Strike set on Mars and a competitive multiplayer map. Sony provides the full details here.

Share your thoughts on Destiny, and if you’re one of the lucky players involved in the alpha, be sure to let us know your impressions.

E3 is a great time for fans looking forward to Destiny. Last night we got to see a new trailer, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. In case you missed it, however, feel free to take a look before we go any further.

Next, now that E3 is truly underway and information about the Destiny beta (we’ll get to that in a minute) has been revealed, alpha footage is allowed to be shown. Behold, two Youtube videos from Arekkz Gaming, which show one of the most-anticipated yet mysterious parts of Destinty: the competitive multiplayer component. These videos feature the Crucible.

Now, about that beta…

The beta of Destiny will begin on July 17. It’s still over a month away, but we’re pleased to have a definitive date at last. And that’s not all! If you’re a PS4 player, you can register for a chance join the alpha test, which will last from June 12-June 15. Good luck!

Finally, the newly-announced white PS4 will be bundled with Destiny, for a retail price of $449. It includes Destiny, the white PS4, a white DualShock 4 controller, and 30 days of PlayStation Plus.

Destiny: Focuses, Public Events, and More

May 19, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

We’ve got two great Destiny videos to share with you today. The first is an unofficial video provided by More Console. It breaks down everything currently known about focuses, supers (the core ability of a given focus), weapons, armor, and more.

Supers are more effective when you work with other players, and they vary depending on which focus you pick: Striker codex, Defender codex, Gunslinger, Edgewalker, Order of the Void, and Order of the Sun. Focuses add an additional twist to the multiple classes.

Meanwhile, a new official video has also been released. Check it out to watch some gameplay and see new environments, while learning about more features of the game, such as public events. As explained in the video, there are certain times where you’ll encounter other players and an event will begin. You can either join in or continue on your way.

If you like what you see but still have some questions, don’t forget to keep an eye on Bungie’s weekly updates, which always include a brief Q&A. This week’s includes reassurance that vehicle-lovers will find plenty to love in Destiny and if you like the gameplay controls used for Call of Duty, you’ll be able to find that control scheme. The weekly updates only include a handful of questions, but it’s a good way to keep up to date on the little details.

You’ll Be Able to Play the Destiny Beta in July

May 6, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Well, we thought we’d have to wait until E3 to learn more about the Destiny beta, but while we still don’t have exact dates, Activision announced today that it will be sometime in July.

This was revealed during Activision’s financial earnings call, along with some other interesting pieces of information. Destiny appears to be setting preorder records for a new IP. Activision also referenced showing Destiny at E3 “with our great partner Sony,” so it sounds like we’ll get to see footage during Sony’s conference.

The beta will also come to Sony’s consoles first, so PS3 and PS4 players will get to try it before Xbox 360 and Xbox One players. Share your thoughts on Destiny, E3, and the upcoming beta in the comments below.

Every day, we learn a little bit more about Bungie’s upcoming shared-world shooter, Destiny. Today, we have videos to share with you from two different sources. The first comes from MoreConsole and is a compilation of details about the various game modes in Destiny (and it has Bungie’s stamp of approval).

So in addition to the Strike mode that was recently previewed, Destiny has a free-roaming Patrol mode, raid-like Bounty mode, and competitive Faction Wars mode, along with more dangerous Raids that are available in the end-game.

Meanwhile, PlayStation shared a new video about the many different types of weapons, armor, and loot found in Destiny.

With unique weapons, upgrades, and more, it sounds like a lot awaits us in Destiny! Share your thoughts in the comments below.
