Agreed -- I played that recently, and now I'm playing through the second part "The Brigmore Witches" DLC. Much fun.

I think I prefer the Knife of Dunwall DLC to Brigmore Witches, but not by much. The Dunwall City Trials are also fun to try at least once. Well, the stealth based missions anyway, of which I prefer the Mystery Foe, because it's fun to have to sneak around and narrow down the identify of your target first, like in the Lady Boyle mission.

Just finished the Grounded difficulty playthrough of TLoU Remastered. It's just soul crushingly hard in some areas, where you can't utilize stealth mostly. Lack of UI really does add to the experience. The ending still blows me away. Enjoying the soundtrack to the credits now, for the 7th time. Will be starting Grounded+ in a minute or two.

I've got little question. I am found of PlayStation and I am going to buy one next year. But the problem is that I have not enough money to buy next-gen PS4.
So the question is, should I wait a little to buy PS4? And how long will PS3 will be supported by SONY?

Coincidentally, a friend who is into gaming visits every year at this time. We have a tradition of eating at a particular restaurant and then visiting a GameStop that's next door.

We talked a bit specifically about the PS4 versus PS3. He had gone ahead and bought a PS4 and has bought exactly one game for it so far. The rest of the time he is still playing PS3 games (and he has a Wii as well).

For me, I still have a sizable stack of PS3 games that I have yet to play (as well as some favorites that I want to replay), so I have no incentive to buy into a PS4 at this point.
