Review: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (PS4)

For all the praise and hype Uncharted 4 has gotten I wanted to make sure that my readers could get the real truth about Uncharted 4. Here at ThePlayStationShow.com, we're not a bunch of corporate shills that are paid off to review games. We're gamers just like you. We put in a hard day's work and buy our games. We are the voice of the people and the people will be heard.

First off Uncharted 4 isn't a game. This isn't a thing you play. We are not children, with an action figure pretending to save the world. Games are for kids. I would never let Uncharted be referred to in that way. That would be like calling the Statue of Liberty just a statue. She is so much more than that. She's a symbol that represents a state of mind. When people look at Lady Liberty they stand in awe of her magnificence. She leaves a lasting impression on all those who gaze upon her grace.

What the moon landing did for man, Uncharted is doing for gaming: "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind". Nathan Drake is this generation's Neil Armstrong. This is a pivotal moment in gaming history. Like a total solar eclipse of the heart, this is a rare point in time where everything changes.

Do you remember when Nintendo changed the landscape of home entertainment with the NES or when Sony launched the CD based system, the PlayStation? If you were there, then you were a part of history. That is the time in which we find ourselves now. Something that will be remembered and should be cherished, because these moments don't happen often.
I like to watch sports. I consider professional sports art at its highest form. Being able to watch athletes execute at the highest levels is the same experience as loading Uncharted 4 into your PS4. It's as if you have a copy of Stephen Curry in the palm of your hand and all you have to do it click the start button.

Uncharted 4 is like visiting the Grand Canyon for the first time. You think you know what it's like, you've read up on it and seen tons of pictures, but that moment you finally lay your eyes on one of the world's wonders, you realize that you had no idea what you were missing. Uncharted 4 should be considered a national treasure.

*Full Disclosure: I didn't buy the game and I have not played it.

Review: Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling (PS4)

Paper Mario but with bugs (not the technical kind).
Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling makes its inspiration obvious just from looking at a screenshot. The art style pays homage to the Paper Mario series and the rest of the game follows suite. The first two Paper Mario games were traditional paper turn based rpgs, and the series has shifted away from that formula since. Bug Fables sets out to create an experience similar to those early entries in the Paper Mario series.

Any fans of the classic Paper Mario games will feel at home playing Bug Fables. Besides the art style, the combat will feel familiar right away. Your party has three characters who will be with you for the entirety of the game. You take turns attacking with each character having their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Each character fares better against specific types of enemies. A unique mechanic this game offers is the ability to give your attack to another character. The penalty is that each subsequent attack is w…

Review: Moving Out (PS4)

Watching my children play together is one of the permanent joys of my life, but it's not a joy I experience as much as I use to. As they grew older they grew more apart. This is a normal thing so in those rare moments when they come together to play, laugh and argue I get to relive their younger years and they don't even know it.
Like most people my family has been in quarantine for the past weeks and 3 of my children are old enough to live away from home. What use to be family weekend dinners with a few video games mixed in became a text messages and phone calls. Week's went by without seeing them. I could tell our youngest was getting bored and whenever he heard us talking to one of his older siblings on the phone his ears would perk up and he would inevitably ask if they were coming over. We would have to say no and he would slump back down and continue doing whatever he was doing. As the quarantine orders have been lifted and we are finally able to venture out and my ki…
