It's more likely that they figure no one listens to music on CDs anymore.

Then they figured wrong.

Okay, I have to check out Duck Souls.

I've never had to install any app to play DVDs or Blu-rays on 2 PS4s and a Pro.


I had to download the app before I could play DVD's on my new PS4 in 2017.

I don’t actually listen to cds very often, mostly because my 2016 truck didn’t come with a CD player. But I still buy cds fairly regularly, they just usually get recorded to my pc and then loses onto my phone

Smart move, it's been cheap as a season and has some interesting ideas as a narrative game but the mixed reviews have always kept me at bay. Now I'll try and pick it up on the next sale if it's good.

 

I also wish Paper Beast had a dynamic theme for sale/free. That game looks more like a screen saver than a game.

 

On that note, does anyone know why dynamic themes all but disappeared from the PS store?

I definitely remember having to do this twice for both my ps4s. Ehh I'll pop one on in a bit and see if I can play a CD thru it. Sounds like it won't work but might as well validate it

I'm interested in checking out Control but now that it's getting multiple DLCs I'll be waiting for the inevitable Ultimate/GotY/Gold edition.

I'm trying to do the same but for some reason those editions go through the same sales cycles while I think this is like 40 buck even after the DLC is added. Waiting is always the better option but Control was/is a phenomenal game.

If I had to guess, they make you download the app so they don't have to pay the license fee for that tech on every console sold, just the ones that actually use the console to play physical movie media.

Was that only at launch or something? As I played it through to 100% on PS3 later and don't recall any major issues.

 

Yeah, I didn't 100% it but I played the heck out of it on PS3 and had the same experience. It only froze on me once on PS4 and I've been playing for 20+ hours

I really enjoyed Terminator Resistance, story wise it's what one of the Terminator sequels should've been and the music is perfect

 

the game has it's fair share of flaws with bad voice acting and dialogue, graphics look like PS3, shooting feels a bit dated but if you love Terminator it's worth checking out

 

the battles with the infiltrators with the T1000's music are tense

If you want to check out the base game now cheaper, it's downloadable on PS Now.  I oddly wasn't too into it, so kind of glad I checked it out for the $10 subscription.

Any thoughts on Assassin's Creed: Origins Gold Edition for $25?

I got a platinum trophy for the base game and was curious if the season pass and DLC content was worth revisiting the game. Thanks!

Both of the AC Origins DLC are pretty good - The Hidden Ones is just like more of the main game, whereas the Curse of the Pharaohs has some really cool environments.  If you enjoyed Origins then I definitely recommend the DLC, though I'm not sure if I'd pay $25 just to get the DLC part.

Thanks for the info and I traded in my physical copy a long time ago so it would be worth it to me to get the Gold edition to have the base game again. Just not sure when I'll ever get around to playing it again since I haven't even gotten to the Oddysey gold content yet lol

I ended up buying the DLC separate at one point, because I already had the base game, and it was cheaper than getting the Gold Edition or the Season Pass. I happen to be playing through it right now, just finished the Hidden Ones 2 days ago, working through Curse now.
So far so good, like Pheran said, Hidden Ones is more like the main game, sort of an epilogue, content wise: enough there to justify it when on sale, but you don't really miss all that much if you don't play it. Adds nuance more than it adds substance.
Curse is great so far, I really like what they did with the Afterlife.

Getting the Season Pass will run you $19.99 right now, but just buying the two DLC packs on their own will run you $3.49 for Hidden Ones, and $6.99 for Curse, so I would def. just buy both of those.

Haha, ofc. you posted right as I was typing, so disregard what I said, as it doesn't apply all that much if you're missing the actual base game  :-

Lol, yeah it looks like it's worth it to me to pick up the Gold edition at $25 though I think it's been that price before. Thanks for the input and glad the DLC content is enjoyable and seems a good amount of length

Odyssey DLC was very tiresome for me. In fact the whole game had a weird progression system that I don't think belonged in AC games. They used some arbitrary leveling system where everyone scaled up anyway so all it did was lock you out of some areas and then constantly make your favorite equipment junk once you outleveled it.

While annoying, yes..at least you can change the scaling levels in Odyssey. Gear drops aren't quite as good with the lower ones of course. I'm hoping the leaks were correct about ditching this mechanic in Ragnarok or whatever the next one's named.
