If you have PS+ you might already own it?

I keep waiting for Hob to go on sale.  Recently read about how good it's supposed to be.

Did anyone get a "wedding" invite for Days Gone?

The RSVP code is daysgone.
 
(Always a bridesmaid...)


Yeah, I got the Days Gone wedding invite. It seems kind of odd.

Yeah, 6am also seems like an awkward time to do it. I'm hoping they give out wedding favors in the form of 20% off codes.

6am edit: It wasn't even a live event, just a trailer drop. Looks cool, but I shouldn't have waited up for it.

Considering how many times those ateliers have been ported these shouldn't cost more than 40 but I cannot blame them for wanting to make money for nothing.  capitalism ho! and all that.

 

If the pattern hold the physical version will be cheap at gamestop eventually.

 

On that note what version of rorona is in this version as if its not plus like the previous bundle then it is practically worthless.

This review says the DX version is a port of the Plus version:

if you do decide to jump down the rabbit hole 1 and 2 hd and bbs hd are the only ones worth playing. The rest are bunk.


You might think the gameplay of chain of memories is bunk but the story of every one of them is important to the end of 3. DDD HD and 0.2 are both extremely important as well. DDD explains the exact setup of KH3 at the start and 0.2 takes aqua from BBS up to the start of 3. Even back cover / the mobile game have important tie ins, though I would say not until the last several hours. The whole fact there is a character from the mobile game presented in the ps4 game as ???? Just so you can't look them up is truly annoying though.

Too bad I can no longer find KH 2.8 Prologue. I am not paying inflated eBay prices.

It's available for $35 right now on Amazon which is less then MSRP. Not that it's super reasonable with them having put out the story so far for 40. Honestly just as confused by them not printing copies of it as anyone else. Just saying I would recommend playing all the games before 3 particularly DDD. 2's ending makes the transition to 3 if it's the last one you played rather jarring. It's like skipping a significant chapter of a book.

I think it will be better than Crackdown 3.

Ha yeah. I can't believe they've delayed Crackdown 3 for so long and the majority of the initial impressions are way less than impressed. It's sounding like it could be an Order 1886 situation where the devs spent so much time perfecting the technology where they forgot to make the game interesting.

I picked up my copy at GameStop for $20. Stock is hit or miss though, it's cheaper than eBay and Amazon.

I thought this looked like something similar to State of Decay with better production values, but I didn't realize it was a prequel/sequel to The Force Unleashed. Wild!

Sorry to keep beating a dead horse, but I DL'd Hitman (free) and the Hitman 2 Legacy. Now I'm playing 1 through 2's engine (some positive, some negative changes--you can pick up three coins in the training mission in the original but they only give two when you play through H2, but dropping the blazing white selection screens is a blessing when playing late at night), but I see all these missions I can DL for free like China and others for free. Are these the individual missions for H1 or are they some bonus material?  Do I have to DL all the H1 missions individually?

All the hitman 1 levels are downloaded separately (actually hitman 2 is like that too interestingly enough). You should have a list of dlcs installed with the name of each location available and be able to match up locations. The hitman 2 stuff starts with Miami. Everything before that you should be able to download.

So... it's like a season pass? Download each chapter?

Is that because it allows people to add as needed? I assume though it's one-way--once they're in, you can't remove the chapters without removing the whole game.

I'm concerned I wouldn't have access to the chapters after March 5th unless I DL them now. I mean, I don't mind, but if I don't have to, I'd rather just add as needed just to save space.

It was an episodic game, so that's how you got the game. Hitman 2 is delivered the same way, though they released all of the episodes up front.

It's like how it handles walking dead seasons. The first episode (or in Hitman's case, the Prologue) is the launcher, and then all the other content is DLC Addons that are accessed within the launcher. After redeeming the legacy pack from inside Hitman (2016) this list of stuff should be in your download list that are addons for Hitman 2:

 

HITMAN™ - Legacy: Paris PS4 3.53GB
HITMAN™ - Legacy: Bonus Missions PS4 7.59GB
HITMAN™ - Legacy: Bangkok PS4 4.85GB
HITMAN™ - Legacy: Sapienza PS4 6.27GB
HITMAN™ - Legacy: Marrakesh PS4 4.32GB
HITMAN™ - Legacy: Colorado PS4 4.76GB
HITMAN™ - Legacy: Hokkaido PS4 4.05GB

Yep, that's what I was referring to. I DL'd Paris and a few others. They don't really list in order they go in, so I just went with a few locales I wanted to check out initially like Hokkaido and Marrakesh.

I'm assuming there's a story order though?

If you look at the list either through the campaign menu or destinations menu then those will be in the story order.

So what I would probably recommend is redeem the S1 legacy pack inside Hitman (2016). Play Season 1 missions as a part of Hitman 2 (so that you'll already have a bunch of unlocks if you ever buy Hitman 2). Then if you still want more after going through all the Season 1 contents, you can always buy the legacy GOTY upgrade pack at a later date for $10.


Thanks for the excellent summary. Is there any reason I shouldn't just delete the Hitman 1 game after getting the legacy pack?

I've been wondering the same thing. I haven't actually started playing Hitman Season 1, though I did upgrade it to the GOTY edition. Now that the entirety of Hitman 1 is in Hitman 2, including all trophies, is there even a reason to bother starting a game in Hitman 1 at all?
