Whoo! Nice.

Whoowhoo!

I had on my camera roll, after a night of drinking, your avatar a few days ago. I don't know how I got it, why it was in my camera roll, and the fact I don't consciously ever remember seeing this picture in my life - I can only assume you are haunting me. Please cease and desist.

I may have left your refrigerator door open just now.

Really curious in the upgraded graphics, I wonder how much of an upgrade they'll be.

A turd is still a turd even if its on PS4.

I played only a couple of hours of it on PS3, but it seemed fine. I only did not spend more time with it because the performance of the game on PS3 is abysmal. From what I saw at Gamescom that should no longer be an issue.

Awesome! I have a character on the PS3 version. Will I be able to use it on the PS4?

Never played this on the PS3 or PC for some reason. I'll probably check it out at some point, I've heard good things.

It's a pretty terrible MMO with all of the same problems they have. Awful combat, horrendous quests that are nothing but fetch and kill 10 of these, and it's one of the poorly handled F2P games that locks a ton behind a paywall and it constantly bugs you to purchase a membership.

I tried getting into it recently on PS3.... had a rough time of it. Will give it a shot on PC first before trying to get into the PS4 version..

It uses the PS3 servers, you just gotta log in with the same account to get access to your character.

As a long time player, I'm thrilled!

A few things for skeptics, naysayers and people who've never played.

There has been a ton of new content since the game's initial launch-- five new powersets (soon to be 6), a new weapon type, tons of new areas, raids, alerts, etc.

The game is getting a huge graphic upgrade for PS4 and it's free to play, so why not give it a whirl?

I think the gameplay is terrific-- excellent action/ physics based play with tons to explore and do with a very robust PvP side (both arenas, open world and playing as iconic DC characters in Legends).

The game's a great one if you love superheroes, sandbox games, PvP or mmos in general.

my brother-in-law keeps trying to get me to play this but I kept shrugging him off... maybe I'll try this version

Stay strong! The game is like an even jankier WoW from 2005 with all of those awful quests and the sluggish combat. You really just go to each quest area and mash your attack button and a few skills and you're done. It's awful.

Looks like it and to be fair PS2 was never a sure launch title. Out if all of those I am most excited to play some more Warframe and Warthunder.

it does sound pretty bad, Derrick01. He showed me a part with him flying around Gotham or something and it was really ugly and awful looking to play so I just sort of smiled sadly.

Last MMO I enjoyed was LOTRO, and it definitely wasn't because I was in love with the gameplay. I'm just obsessed with Lord of the Rings.

Heh, DCUO has always been buggy. I guess we won't really tell if it was rushed for launch.

And it's free to play. Not feeling like complaining about free stuff.

You sound like you maybe played for ten minutes then quit.

The leveling up quests are fine and dispensed with quickly (especially with friends). The real game opens up after you get your toon to level 30. Then the actual game really begins and it involves mechanics that are much more complicated than you're suggesting :)

Blacklight hasn't been confirmed yet and War Thunder has only been confirmed for EU day 1.
