Editors Opinion: If you’ve been a bit disappointed with the recent iteration of star ocean. This may be the title you’ve been looking for depending on your taste. I know for me personally this was of the star ocean games that took me a bit of a while to progress in but the grind was worthwhile. Star Ocean is one of my most adored franchised that I was introduced to in my early PlayStation days. (Thanks my best friend John S. for that)

God of War- Be A Warrior E3 2017 Trailer

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

One of the biggest PlayStation 4 exclusive title God of War received a new trailer during PlayStation’s E3 2017 conference, giving a early 2018 release window.

A Second Chance

Kratos is a father again. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, he is forced to deal with and control the rage that has long defined him while out in a very dangerous world with his son.

A Darker, More Elemental World

From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains, and caves of Pre-Viking Norse lore, this is a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods. With an added emphasis on discovery and exploration, the world will draw players in to explore every inch of God of War’s breathtakingly threatening landscape—by far the largest in the franchise.

Vicious, Physical Combat

With an over the shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty, and grueling. A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War while presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground in the genre.

Days Gone E3 2017 Stage Demo

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Last night at PlayStation E3 2017 conference here was an great display of games and one of them was Days Gone. Days Gone is a open world being developed by Sony Bend Studios, that offers many different ways to explore and strategize as you try to survive as Deacon against a variety of different types of enemies you meet during his journey. Days Gone will come to the PlayStation 4 exclusively at a TBA(To Be Announced) release date/window.

Here are some key features on Days Gone:

Open World

Using the power of PlayStation 4 and Unreal Engine 4, Days Gone offers an incredibly realistic and detailed open-world experience. Vast and hostile environments can be fully explored on the back of Deacon’s Drifter bike. Abandoned vehicles can be searched for useful items. Towns and buildings can be entered and searched – at great risk. All lighting is done in real time – eye adaption technology creates a real sense of dread when entering dark buildings; day and night have an impact on the experience; weather affects enemy behavior.

Brutal sandbox combat

Exemplifying true, free-form gameplay, Days Gone offers freedom to explore, strategize and play “your way.” Every challenge can be approached and completed in an almost infinite number of ways. Many different items and weapons can be crafted using items found in the field, including brutal melee weapons and traps. Customizable weapons and skills offer true freedom in how the game is played.

Unique enemies

In addition to human Drifters, marauders and militia, Deacon must face a wilderness overrun by Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving. Freakers have needs, habits and behaviors that the player can learn and adapt to. 

Unique setting

The harsh high-desert of the Pacific Northwest offers a large variety of environments in a single geographical area. One minute Deacon can be riding through a pristine forest, a snow field, a lush meadow, and the next, be in the harsh desert lava fields. The hazardous environments, scarred by millions of years of volcanic activity, are defined by ancient lava flows, mountains, caves, cliffs and river basins, delivering a breathtaking backdrop to an equally diverse style of gameplay. Cinnabar mines, lava tube caves and small rural towns offer a variety of environments to explore.

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Media Player for the PS4 is a feature that many may or may not beware of as far as it’s capabilities but for many like myself it is an well invited convenience. Well today that convenience gets even better.As reported via the PlayStation blog. The PS4 Media Player will be updated to support 4K video and more here’s the details below:

The Media Player app is getting an update to support 4K video playback on PS4 Pro. Following this update, 4K videos in mp4 format saved on a USB stick or home server can be played on the Media Player app (remember, you’ll also need a 4K compatible TV to watch the videos in 4K).

Your home server will appear as a media option in the Player automatically, so finding your media is simple and quick. Just a reminder: USB storage that’s already been formatted as extended storage for your PS4 can only be used to save games and apps — it can’t be used to save and play videos.

For those of you that own PlayStation VR in addition to PS4 Pro, Media Player will also update to support playback of 4K VR video content. PS VR’s display resolution is 1920 X RGB X 1080, so 4K VR videos will be displayed in a higher image quality compared to HD VR videos. Capture stunning 360 degree 4K footage, and then immerse yourself in that footage in VR at home — just as if you’re right back in the scene you shot.

The PS4 Pro already supports streaming 4K video via Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu all have 4K content available. With that being said do you intend to use these features?
