Da Husk.
sony has always made terrible controllers. you either just have to put up with it or buy a third party controller that emulates a 360 or xbox one controller.
Problem is there's only two of them and one of them is cheaply made and doesn't even all the features of a regular DS4 and the other is retardedly overpriced and has reliability issues.

It's unnatural and an insult to god, that's what it is. The thumbsticks are not where you'd naturally rest your thumbs.

A few top tier ones off the top of my head

Persona 5
Nier Automata
Resident Evil 7
The Witcher 3
Overwatch
Final Fantasy 14/15
Dark Souls 3
Anything else? The first two are weeby and look nothing like what I would enjoy, and all of the other ones I either already own on different platforms (overwatch, dark souls, final fantasy 15, Witcher) or would probably be better on PC or Xbox.
you're missing out on a lot if you write nier and persona off because they have weeb appeal. for being as smart and open minded as you are, i find it a little surprising you let something like that get in the way
Nier, maybe, but Persona? Ugh. I don't know what it is but I cannot stand the anime trope shit. The voice acting, the over the top reactions, the exasperated sighs and exaggerated noises that go with everything, the art style, the usual gameplay... Looking at Persona 5, there is literally nothing about the game that looks enjoyable. Everything about it is turning me off. Much of my anti-weeb attitude on here is for the joke of it (even though I really don't like anime) but I see zero things that make me want to play it. I also don't think that's got much to do with being close-minded. If you think asparagus are gross and can't stand the taste of them to begin with, it's not at all unreasonable to skip out on a slightly different asparagus-base dish.

Nier, I guess, is more of a maybe. It doesn't look all that bad and could be worth a play.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
You could get their 'Elite' controller. Its like they know that the superior layout is the other one and bundle the console with a peasant version of it.

I've gotta say, the PS4 is pretty damn slow to update and download stuff. I'm on wired connection and this is pretty abysmal when compared to my Xbox and PC.  It's like 30 minutes per GB at least.

PS4 took me a full hour to download and install a 1GB Bloodborne update. On the Xbox One, I just downloaded and installed a full 800 MB system update in 15 minutes and am now wrapping up a 6 GB Shadow of War update at 5MB/s in under 20 minutes. What is this? Does the PS4 just suck when it comes to downloading like the PS3 did or is there something else going on here?

it's probably you

multi-gig updates take no more than 10-20 minutes for me on ps4, and my internet is decent at best

Strange. It doesn't seem to be just me though. A quick google search gives me several results on how the Xbox network speed and downloads are supposedly faster than the PS4. But yeah, it is surprising that the PS4 was that slow so there probably was some kind of issue. I'll report back next time I download something on it. :/

I understand exactly what you mean. Even as a fan of anime stuff the grunts and gasps are obviously a hollywood tier thing to simply add emotion onto otherwise silentish actions. Acting and all that.

That being said, I only counted a few times really Nier did that, but it is nowhere near the same ballpark as Persona 5 and anime you would tag along with it. Game I'd say is the closest to that is a Tales game considering it basically IS an anime.

I think you'd do fine with Nier. If you're on the fence, watch the beginning 30 mins or so and gauge how you feel. No need wasting hard earned money, right? And it's a safe way to tell what's what.

I got my brother Elder Scrolls Online for PS4 as a Christmas Present (along with 3 months of PS +) since he doesn't PC and he was obsessed with Oblivion so much he basically kicked me off my 360 when I was a kid and played it.

Good times. He's stuck on it now which is nice for him.

It took me like 45 minutes to download EAFront 2 on my PC

PSN just sucks altogether even if you have good internet

If I'm not here, I'm doing Geology. Or I'm asleep. Or hungover. One of those three, anyway.

If you want nameplates or modified images for avatars, pm me to your heart's content. I may or may not ever get around to them, I'm lazy like that, but I'll get around to them at some point. Maybe.

According to some rigorous testing, it's because the PS4's receive window is proportionally smaller compared to that of whatever your bandwidth speeds are, like a truck delivering packages to a warehouse but to pass them through a doorway at the end. Using a local proxy setup for your PS4 to use while downloading can remedy the issue like so (Source1);
Spoiler

It can also be a result of being shunted onto a slower server which isn't the most optimal for you, which can be also remedied by finding out which server gives you the best speeds, and forcing your local proxy going ONLY through that server to download. This has a disadvantage as if the server turns off, the proxy won't automatically swap over and you now have no download unless you input manually the next best server address (Source2).

Sources, with a TON of useful technical information, testing methodology, and the suggested workaround:
https://www.reddit.com/r/PS4/comments/522ttn/ps4_downloads_are_notoriously_slow_i_might_have/
https://www.reddit.com/r/PS4/comments/5drvcc/an_update_on_psn_download_speeds/

Personally, I have found I get faster download speeds by putting it in sleep mode whilst downloading - this has the obvious drawback of not being able to play it, however.

TLDR; yeah it's totally a you-problem. Not a firmware or PSN serverside problem at all.

That's fucking dumb. Bad controller, bad download stuff. Let's just hope the games are worth it.
