Wild Arms 3 is actually pretty damn good. I've also heard good things about Okage though it's combat still follows the same formula of RPGs 

That's something I almost forgot.  Yeah, the way the battle plays out is standard turned-based RPG battles.  However, the way your character progresses is not.  There are anti-grinding measures to the battle.  The more you go up in levels, the less XP the enemies will give you, forcing you to advance the game to find enemies that will give you more XP.  Don't expect to find a nice spot to camp out in and just boost your levels; not going to happen.

Haven't found the time to play Ys Origin yet, but I played the first three games in the series (on TurboDuo) and always found Ys to be highly enjoyable.

 

Here They Lie has an annoying movement in VR. You've got either click-turning or if you have regular turning, it puts black borders around your vision so it's like you're looking through a cardboard tube...

 

Played Okage: Shadow King on the PS2 and enjoyed it, though it helps to have a guide. The collectable "Tiny Gears" are invisible. Like, you literally cannot see them on a map. You just happen to walk over them and it says you picked it up. Otherwise, it's one I picked up as a PS2-on-PS4 and have been waiting for the time to play.

 

Super Stardust Ultra is a decent arcade-type game kind of like a superpowered Asteroids, except flying around the ozone layer of a planet rather than deep space.  Looks really nice on a 3D television and even nicer on PSVR (the regular mode, that is, the special VR-exclusive mode leaves a little to be desired.)

 

Have always heard good things about the Wild Arms series and Ethan Carter. I picked up both of those myself, but again, haven't had a chance to play.

Out of curiosity, is Burnout Revenge Remastered worth picking up? Right now I'm holding off until it drops to $20 or less. Just want to hear from those who've played it.

Burnout Paradise Remastered?  I thought it was great, one of my rare preorders. The original was a classic but hard to look at today, the remaster is beautiful.  I played it non-stop after I got it and only stopped playing it once I got all the trophies. Highly recommended.

I've noticed that 3840x1920 video always stutters (the audio is delayed as well) and I've never been able to successfully play a file at 5400x2700 or over (even when reencoded). I just figured it was limitations in the PS4 hardware, but I'll try messing with the IDC program parameters more and see if it helps.

I've run 3840x1920 fine without stutter or audio delays using a 5.1 High Profile (encoded using HandBrake.) Never tried anything above that.

If you get a black screen with audio during playback of videos, it’s probably that your IDC profile level is off. Get the free CoolSoft H264 Level Editor. Drag and drop your file into the program’s window and it will show current level (probably will be at 3.x or 4.x). Use the drop down box to select a new level and set it at 5.1. Takes less than a second and your file should now work. I have some files that are like 16gb, so file size doesn’t seem to an issue

How are you using 16gb files on PS4?  I thought all external hard drives had to be FAT32 for the PS4 to read it, which allows only a max file size of 4gb.
