    It's apparently sold at Walmart, Amazon, Target and Gamestop.

    In KH1 there are definitely areas where the game hasn't aged well and the camera becomes your main enemy, but I'd still say the games are worth your time playing (especially KH2 which is one of my favorite games as they fixed many of the issues I had with the first). But I will warn you, the story gets more and more confusing as the series progresses, but it makes up for it with it's game play.

    God of war consoles sold out every where I checked. GameStop guy told me it might be better to wait for E3 and that they usually release new bundles and deals around then. Any truth to this, Or would it be a waste of time?

    I'm unsure about bundles during E3. It's possible someone else can answer that?

    If you have a Costco membership, this is a decent deal: Costco Wholesale

    390 instead of 400 and also you get $20 off if you get a Dualshock 4 with it, which is cheaper at Costco as is.

    That's probably the next time GameStop expects to get bundles in...but I can't imagine you'd go an entire month without stumbling upon a bundle somewhere else.

    Shout outs to Walmart Canada for getting out there and spoiling like half of E3 probably.

    I’m currently setting up my PS4! Bought God of War and The Show, but excited to try out the uncharted series as well. Thanks for your help answering my questions again.

    You got some great games there! I can recommend so many more for you.

    Uncharted Collection
    Uncharted 4
    Uncharted The Lost Legacy
    The Last of Us Remastered
    Persona 5
    Nier Automata (haven't played it myself but I've heard nothing but amazing things about it; on PC as well)
    Horizon Zero Dawn
    Yakuza 0
    Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice (going to Xbox soon, but still; on PC as well)
    The Last Guardian
    Shadow of the Colossus
    Journey
    Until Dawn
    Street Fighter V (also on PC)
    Bloodborne
    Infamous Second Son (and First Light)
    Ratchet & Clank

    Just to name some (these are, outside of Hellblade, at least console exclusives. Many of these are only on the PS4).

    You read my mind on my next question. If you had to narrow that list down even further to just one or two, which ones would you say I have to go get?

    Horizon gets my vote, though if you never played them on PS3, the Uncharted Collection has great value

    All depends on what kind of games you prefer. The Last of Us is a mast-play (and should be easy to find for dirt cheap), but after that it depends on if you want to play something different (not many games like Persona 5 or Nier Automata on XBone), something open world (Yakuza), or you could just play the hits (Uncharted games, Bloodborne, etc.).

    Horizon is a great place to start.

    The Last of Us Remastered

    I know you said one or two, but it has to be at least these 3. If I were to add a mandatory 4th, it would be Persona 5.

    Horizon it is! I opened God of War and did the tutorial opening last night, wow. Insane graphics. Glad you pushed me to get the Pro console.

    I did not open The Show - I think I am going to swap it out for Horizon after reading all your comments.

    God I hope that Borderlands 3 leak is true. I've been waiting for so long it seems. I just love that series so much. Hopefully it releases near the summer of next year so I can dump a ton of time into it.

    My girlfriend and I will be playing the **** out of that game. She probably has... 3000+ hours in all versions of Borderlands combined?

    Borderlands 2 is in my top 5 games ever. Like seriously, what does it do wrong? I love it so much.

    I very rarely buy games at launch (IE full price). The last one I bought at launch was Fallout 4. BL3 is the next game I buy at release for sure.

    I loved borderlands 2 but let's be honest, the industry has changed a lot in 6 years. They're gonna monetize 3 up the keester. Its already a loot hunting game, it would take very little effort to do.

    I recently moved back to the UK from Japan, after living there for four years. Due to Japanese reasons, I was unable to sell my PS4 to a second hand store and had to give it away to a friend for free (due to very late notice).

    It was a sad time.

    However, today my brand new PS4 Pro will be arriving in the mail. Huzzah!

    They'll monetize the hell out of BL3, but as long as the core gameplay remains the same I don't care. If they sell skins for the vault hunters, or even sell something equivalent to golden keys I don't mind one bit. If they have legendaries that can only be obtained through buying them I'll be extremely pissed. We already know they're going to have a ton of DLC like they did with 2, that's pretty much a given. The one thing that will really piss me off, and it's not even related to monetization, is if they make bosses one time encounters again like they did with several of the bosses in TPS. Farming bosses is core to the Borderlands experience. That's an absolute must.

    I also don't want anything equivalent to the grinder either. Borderlands is not about crafting, it's about that moment of excitement when the gun you've been farming finally drops. There's still a level of excitement with the grinder, but it's not the same.

    I just hate that they did 2 or 3 different season passes. Just ****ing make it one, at least for all the extra DLC campaigns. You can make others for skins and **** like that.

    Yeah I was not a fan of the grinder. Hated that ****ing thing.

    I ended up trading in The Show for Last of Us remastered, which actually got me 40 bucks back. Won’t start that until I finish God of War, which about 7 hours in and it is already one of my favorite games all time. Kratos is such a bad azz and is a really likable character too. Amazing game.

    I am really happy. Just somewhat mad at myself for waiting so long to get a PlayStation. I still have my Xbox and have nothing against it - I’m praying Halo turns it around. But the PlayStation exclusives just run circles around what the Xbox has right now.
