Versus – PS4 vs PS4 Pro Boost Mode

[embedded content] With confirmation that PlayStation 4 firmware update 4.50 will bring a “Boost Mode” for the PS4 Pro, we’re naturally curious how this new feature sizes up compared to the games performance of the original PS4. In this Versus episode, PlayStation LifeStyle pits the PS4 vs PS4 Pro Boost Mode gameplay experiences from what we know so far. While it’s obvious that the PS4 Pro’s Boost Mode will understandably fare better on a technical level, we take a look at it whether it’s worth upgrading your original PS4, or how valuable this new feature is. Curious? Yeah, you should be. What do you think? Will this PS4 Pro Boost Mode feature give a significant upgrade to old games? And will it be as big of an improvement as some people assume it’ll be?

Everything Wrong With Nioh

[embedded content] With Team Ninja’s action-RPG Nioh now out on the PlayStation 4, we here at PlayStation LifeStyle decide to take a look at just what we think people might have a problem with on the game. Given how it’s made in the same vein as From Software’s Souls (and Bloodborne) games where everything can and will kill you, the difficulty and overwhelming enemies didn’t really factor in as some people might have thought. Of course, that doesn’t mean that’s the only thing to nitpick! Check out our Everything Wrong With Nioh video feature to see what else we had an issue with when it and don’t worry, there’s no spoilers here. Agree with our complaints? Did we miss anything?

Why You Should Be Hyped for Horizon Zero Dawn in 60 Seconds

[embedded content] February is upon us, and that means Sony’s big first-party title, Horizon Zero Dawn, is almost ready to assault everyone. Given how big the Killzone franchise is for Sony, Guerrilla must have impressed the publisher a lot for them to shelve it for a new IP. While post-apocalyptic, open-world gameplay is nothing new, the fact that Horizon Zero Dawn isn’t about zombies or the like is, in itself, quite unique. Guerrilla has instead opted for lush jungles with robo-dinosaurs as the enemies from what we’ve seen so far. Just what has us excited for Horizon Zero Dawn ? Hit play in the video above and see for yourself. Are you excited for Horizon Zero Dawn? Why or why not? Let us know what you think of it so far in the comments below.

Resident Evil 7 Biohazard Video Review – Still Terrifying 20 Years Later

Resident Evil 7 Biohazard Video Review  The series that essentially kick-started started the “survival horror” genre some twenty years ago is back. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard draws from its roots with signature hallmarks of exploration, puzzle solving and tense atmosphere. It is also a complete refresh of gameplay systems delivers an innovative new take on survival horror. A couple of days ago, we posted our full written review. When Tyler reviewed the game he said: “Resident Evil 7 biohazard isn’t without its flaws, but it’s absolutely the sequel that Capcom had to make in order to make the series relevant again. It features some fantastic scares early on, offers up the familiar gameplay that fans have been begging to return (even if the new ideas are even more exciting), and uses the first-person perspective to its advantage.
