Nah, the story is pretty standalone. I would say that it requires a little bit of patience if you're not familiar with the style of games, but you should be able to adapt relatively quickly.

Never got around to messing with my PS4 during the holidays, so since it's still new, I figured I'd upgrade the hard drive to a 2TB drive while it was empty (i.e. no back up needed). I ended up going with an $80 Seagate drive from Costco and it couldn't have been quicker or easier. If you're thinking about doing it, I recommend going for it.

After spending some time with my PS4, I can't help but shake the feeling that it's far more convoluted than the PS3 in terms of the X-bar menu system and such. I get that it's a multi-media platform and that it does a whole lot more, but I prefer the simplistic elegance of the PS3.

Yea I really liked the interface of the PS3.

The XboxOne is pretty complicated as well

Video games in general are too complicated these days.

I agree. I prefer the PS3's interface to the PS4's.

My lady just got me Last Of Us Remastered when it recently went on sale for $40 and I picked up Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for $19.99. Got a nice little backlog of games building up.

The X1 interface has gotten better since the update, but it's still too clunk on mundane tasks that you do repeatedly while using the console.

The good news is that the X1 "SmartGlass" app is really well done, and it's great for doing stuff like checking friend lists, checking achievements, etc.

Enjoying the shit out of replaying the remastered Uncharted series on PS4. Such a great experience.

Amazon Prime gets you 20% off on all pre-orders now. Seems like its going to be a constant perk now.

Yep, it's pretty sweet. I used it for Uncharted 4.

Cool, I'll have to keep a look out for reviews. I could see it being a game I'd like as long as it's not a FPS.

You might try what I'm doing. Pre order the game on Amazon to play the beta then cancel your pre order if you don't like it

Played through the Uncharted series for the first time, a ton of fun. I'd highly recommend the new Tomb Raider series for those who like it. They obviously borrowed liberally from Uncharted, but it's the same thrills with an even grander scale and more freedom.

Preordered Far Cry Primal and Uncharted 4 the other day
