    Also DMC5 is on its way as is MLB the Show 19
    Dude, get me added on Xbox Live (Freyaka) and we'll sail the seas. I'm a long time Sea of Thieves player. That game is so freaking fun!

    it looks alright but a lot of the games that ps4 features like that on their social media seem to be duds. I haven't seen any gameplay that shows much besides shooting at massive hordes of zombies either.

    I'd wait for some player reviews on it.

    just can't really get into the newer games right now, i even bought a ps4 last fall and it just sits there. although i have dabbled a little with madden 19, but nothing serious.
    Since you have a PS4, I do have a few suggestions for you. Check out Horizon Zero Dawn. It's on sale for cheap right now and it's a blast, plus you can find a rundown deteriorated Mile High Stadium which should be a plus in your eyes. (it's set in the distant future in the Colorado area)

    Might not be a terrible idea to try Apex either. It amazes me how many people that do not like that style of game love it.

Some even require that you use the webbing to ensnare them before you attack) It's a very deep and challenging combat system, far above what Arkham was already doing IMO.
    The further I get into the game the more i realize what you mean on that last sentence. It’s basically just the skeleton basics of Arkham. And then expanded by 10.

    I cannot express how much nicer it is to have more gadgets and abilities that can fairly counter the enemies use of guns. That was always a very challenging part of Arkham to have very little counters other than just strategically dodging bullets.

    Yeah I figured the various villains would have different weaknesses and they wouldn’t make it so simple to be able to adapt one strategy to beat all.

    Arkham Knight was pretty good about changing it up so you couldn’t get comfortable with one style of play.

    I obviously haven’t unlocked a ton of his abilities yet. But the surface seems mostly the same combat system. With the main differences being shooting and using webbing and the slide.

    I would almost say they took the mechanics of Arkham and added new features that are suited to spidey. That are improvements. Like trapping an enemy in the webbing. And lassoing weapons with it. Even the slide under enemies was a nice add on. Which makes enemies with shields easier to solve than the Arkham series.

    It plays very very similar to the Arkham games so there isn’t much learning curve on mechanics. Hopefully the story is great. I was surprised to have a boss battle so early in the game.

    I played past the proving for HZD last night. Good game so far. Haven't touched much MHW, but I think I'll end up liking it.
