hey we're back with more of a brief episode of before you buy the show we give you some straight-up gameplay and our first impressions of the latest games releasing and today we're talking about pub G on ps4 we've been playing it in the office because we figured we just give ps4 fans some perspective on it just like we did with the Xbox one version although we haven't had a lot of luck with chicken dinners at all as you could probably tell by our crappy gameplay we captured baapji on ps4 is still good for some folks who haven't had the chance to play the game pardon if this before you buy sounds similar to the other pub G ones I've done I'm gonna reach write a lot of ground but let's get into it pub G the one year later or so from the mainstream success has lost a bit of steam uh you know either with fans of the game or just in the culture in general thanks to the rise of fortnight but for me and basically all the guys at game ranks pub G has always filled a different corner a slower tactical tense and just immensely satisfying the game in general regardless of console has not been cleaned up and fixed and supported in the drastic ways a lot of us were hoping or expecting in some regards even if I'm generalizing a little bit but that core gameplay is still solid as hell and it does work on console I will always preach from the heavens that this game in particular that is very much a PC gamer and ass game where keyboard and mouse makes the experience that much better but still much like the Xbox one version the controls here mapped nicely enough to a DualShock controller aiming and movement is as optimized as it can be for a game like this although it does still feel a little bit more responsive on xbox control wise it just seems to be a competent port and thankfully performance wise the console version of the game has improved since launch like the Xbox one version launched as a complete mess I mean the game still doesn't look that great and the framerate nosedives as you parachute in but it's much more stable and playable than it's ever been foliage looks extremely rough and the game almost looks ancient in spots though especially when it comes to light and shadow and I also noticed not much advantage of playing on a ps4 Pro either but it doesn't look that great but at least most of the time the framerate holds up and that's really the main I hear that the gameplay blemishes aside it's great for someone on ps4 who only has a ps4 and has been dying to see what the hell this whole puppy thing is all about it made a huge splash on the gaming scene right before fortnight everyone was talking about it like crazy and now seemingly years later Sony fans can finally get their hands on it here I just like people being able to play things so for that I chalk it up as a win if you've been waiting to experience pub G hopefully there were some people waiting out there on ps4 I'm not sure about what you get is an exciting core battle royale game 100 players drop onto one of a few Maps you don't get access to the snow one yet though unfortunately it looks awesome but the game is basically a scramble to find weapons and equipment and then kill or be killed as the map slowly closes in on you unlike fortnight this game is a bit more of a tactical slower paced third-person shooter I love it because it reminds me of the old SOCOM games where there was emphasis on callin prone sneaking around using the right scope attachments for weapons set to single fire and generally just being accurate now I know it's way harder to be accurate on a controller compared to PC but still it is a lot of fun the reason battle royale games are so successful is because the adrenaline rush you get from getting down to the final few players feels like nothing else in video games it's excellent for the competitive player but also for casual folks too it's fun pick up and play is fairly easy but it's tough as hell des Master part of the fun is getting to know the maps and knowing where you prefer to drop and now if you are a first-time or looking for advice I'd always suggest to not be afraid to drop in a hot zone with a bunch of other players think of it this way you have to get practicing when it comes to a quick looting and shooting spending long stretches without firing a gun is fine if you know what you're doing but when the time comes for you to use that weapon and you have no practice actually doing so you'll usually end up getting got even if you initially have the drop clearly from our gameplay because we are all out of practice of playing with a controller that definitely is the case now since the game has been around for a while now you do get cleaner menus more unlockable customization items and ever before and the game itself just has slight quality of life improvements as well as a lot more weapons I just really hope it's not too late for pub G on ps4 because I've loved this game from the beginning ups and downs and really hopes it finds a new welcoming audience here if you're a ps4 fan and that's all you got and you've been wanting to play this I'm excited for you because this is a really cool game to experience despite its pretty massive flaws the raw fun factor is absolutely great but of course that is a before you buy I give me some pros some cons and some personal opinion thrown in but now I definitely want to hear yours down in the comments this was kind of just like a quick catch-up video but if you have been playing on ps4 I'd love to hear your perspective as well have you been having issues do you think the price justifies the content whatever you think about pub GPS for let's talk down in the comments unless you're just playing Super Smash Brothers then you go back to doing that
