    I've had enough of 100 hour games, 16 hours will do me fine....

    Agreed. The last generation might have killed the open world genre forever for me.
    Give me a linear experience with good writing and fun gameplay. In and out in a week.

    16 hours is ideal for a game of this nature, or most games really. Getting a bit fed up of stuff that goes on and on and on.

    Paid 50 for Resident Evil VIII not long ago and that was only 9-10 hours and I have zero regrets because of its quality.

    Yep. Nothing more off-putting than a developer talking about how large the map in their new game is.
    Fuck that open world nonsense! Just funnel me from one linear level to the next.

    Must admit that the R&C series has largely passed me by, despite me even owning the likes of Quest for Booty on PS3. It just never appealled.

    With Rift Apart being one of the few big exclusives, and the 2016 remake being free as part of the PS+ collection, and boosted to 60fps, I started playing it in prep.

    Now I'm torn. On the one hand, this looks amazing, is reviewing well, and seems to be the next big exclusive to jump on. On the other hand, a few levels in to R&C 2016, and am very unimpressed. I must be missing something, but the humour is meh, and the gameplay feels pretty bad to be honest. Is it possibly just a slow burner? Maybe it will all fall into place? I'll stick with it for now. No need to pounce immediately on a £70 Rift Apart splurge.

    IGN has a performance/tech video by NX Gamer up as well.

    Not decided which mode I want to play it in yet. The shinies are so good.

    I think RT performance mode wil make it an easier decision unless the resolution has taken an absolute hammering. Can't find any footage of it as most of the reviews and stuff were made before the patch dropped.

    NX Gamer mentioned 1440p in the video. 1440p usually feels pretty soft to my eyes, but Insomniac's upscaler is the best in the business.

    Acg seemed to think the performance rt option was the best one to go for.

    Looks like it's only the native resolution that's taken a bit so it sounds like a no brainer

    Is it not reasonable to suggest that, similar to Miles Morales, Insomniac will release a 4K/60/RT patch a few weeks after release?

    No. They did release one a few days ago though.

    Away from the tech stuff, I'm curious to see the full list of weapons for this one. I always find the weapons to be one of the strongest aspects of the R&C games, as they also were in the Resistance games (Insomniac are really good at this stuff). They usually have a few properly bonkers ones that feel right out of a 1990s PC shooter, from the days before Call of Duty made everything go grey.

    That one that opens portals from other PS exclusives looks a hoot.

    Mr Zurkon had better be back as well as the Sheepinator and the Groovatron.

    Just tried to load it for the lols and had a bit of a "THEYRE FUCKING US!!! 1 DAY 4 HOURS UNTIL LAUNCH! I SHOULD BE ABLE TO PLAY IT TOMORROW YOU YANKEE BASTARDS!!!!" moment.

    ... Then I remembered it's only Wednesday and I've had a few drinks.
