    It will make for a fun, nostalgic holiday season.

    Not that I'm playing, but apparently there's a ton of Pokemon in our neighborhood... So many kids wandering around with their phones! Adults too. It's sad that it's the most kids I've seen in our neighborhood since we moved there.

    To each their own, I guess. I don't get the whole Pokemon Go fad. Looks like people are hooked on something entirely banal.

    Its the future of gaming I'm starting to think. an interactive game that brings your real city/world into play and you aren't behind a console to do it. Ingress their first game had the right idea but because of the appeal of Pokémon this is when we will see the idea really push everyone that direction. My kids love it and my wife and I downloaded it just to understand what they were doing and its silly fun.

    Time to resurrect this one... Anyone have/try/playing the new Spider Man game on PS4? Been thinking about picking it up but hoping it doesn't suck.

    I played it for a hour or so. It looks awesome. It took me a long while to kill Kingpin in the opening bit. I found it a bit hard just because not use to that type of game..... will pick it up again after I tire a bit of RDR2

    Haven't played SM, but have heard nothing but good things about it from loads of people.

    I just don't have time for it in between Red Dead Redemption 2 and Battlefield V.

    Re: What's In The Console?

    Picked up a few games over Christmas for the PS4. The new Spider Man game is really cool and I can see why it's been getting good reviews. Took a while to get used to the controls and it can get a little overwhelming for me when there's a ton of stuff going on but otherwise it's a solid game. Many options open world style, while still having a story arc to follow. Granted I'm only a couple hours into it, but even little man at 8yo can webswing and take on bad guys like nobody's business!
    Also finally got Star Wars Battlefront 2. WAY better than the first one and I was super stoked to be able to finally play on the good side of the story. You start off as an Inferno Stormtrooper...like a green beret only meaner. Only problem is it's looking like they wus out and you switch sides and join the rebels!! What the hell? I was hoping you'd be able to stay on the right side of the force and keep the Empire alive like in KOTR. Otherwise it's pretty cool as a FPS. The flight controls are clunky and the physics are ok. I mean, I really don't know what it's like to fly in space so I have to give it some latitude. (Which I don't give other flying games since I can actually fly both fixed wing and rotor)
    Haven't done any of the online gameplay yet because I hate being laughed at by prepubescent punks because I'm not fast enough etc.
