Slow music box rendition of Green Hill Zone.

A close-up: Dr. Robotnik running in the dark, his face flushed with fear and sweat.

Cut to: a blue blur om the background. It's zigging and zagging. It's so quick, it could be on Dr. Robotnik in a second, but it takes its time. It's toying with the man.

Back to: Dr. Robotnik running, now reaching a loop-de-loop in the path. He sprints forward as hard as he can and gets a few feet up the loop-de-loop, but then, his foot slips...

DR. ROBOTNIK: No...no no no!

...and he slides down pathetically. He lies humiliated at the bottom, when into the frame steps our monster, blood dripping from its spines and a knife in his hands. He saunters up to the doctor...

????: You could have escaped, doctor. You could've survived. But...

There it is: its massive, gleaming, bulbous eye(s) and a sick grin on its face:

SONIC: You're too slow.

Smash cut to black. Screams.

So good for a story-based poop.

So earlier this year I bought a 4K TV. I have a standard PS4 and a computer that could maybe run games at 4K, but since the PC's in my room I'd either have to lug it into the living room every time I play games (pls no), get a longass cord snaking out my bedroom into the TV (also pls no, and apparently in longer HDMI/DP cords quality drops out the wazoo), or streaming through Steam's new free Steam Link thing, which is basically like owning the $50 Steam Link box but if you have a certain Samsung TV (like I do) it just runs through the TV itself rather than needing to first go through the box. Which means I'm saving the $50 I would've considered spending on that box (which seems to be becoming less useful by the minute), except currently the software can only process as high as 1080p (and no the box can't do any better, it caps there too, and unlike the TV software my guess is that due to technical limitations that could never be bumped up in the future while with the TV there's at least a slight chance of that happening).

That's all a roundabout way of saying that I have a glorious 4K TV and no way to play games on it at 4K and it bugs the shit out of me.

I'm wondering if it's worth selling my current PS4 and upgrading to the Pro. I'm hoping the Pro gets a big price slash come Black Friday, but my guess is that it'll go from its current $400 to around $300, and I'll probably be able to get no more than $150-200 for my older model (GameStop should really have a deal where you save a lot if you trade in an old model for a new one), meaning it's around $150 just to bump up that quality. And is it worth it? Do most PS4 games run at 4K, or only some of the newer fancier shit?

I'd say that it depends on the kind of games you're playing.

The big AAA games and PS4 exclusives are generally your safest bet when it comes to 4K output on the PS4 Pro, so if you happen to play more niche games, odds are they won't take advantage of the PS4 Pro's 4K output or the like. There is a Boost Mode that was introduced this year that forces games that haven't been made to use the more powerful hardware actually use it, though I wouldn't expect anything more other than perhaps a slightly more stable frame rate. To my understanding, more games will have full support for the PS4 Pro over time, and I simply upgraded if only because I could do so for a good price, and I didn't see any opportunity like it coming up again anytime soon. Also, I wouldn't really trust the back of the box when it says PS4 Pro Compatible, because about every game that gets released for the PS4 nowadays says it, but they don't specify if they get enhanced, and if they do, they don't specify in what way, so you'll have to do your own research unfortunately in that regard. There are some games released prior to the PS4 Pro that have gotten patches to output at 4K on the PS4 Pro, but again, you'll have to do the research to see which games do.

If you need an exhaustive list on how the PS4 Pro affects a specific game, I came across this NeoGAF thread that happens to list a bunch of games that support the PS4 Pro, how they are enhanced, and includes both games that support it natively or require Boost Mode. I'd say look at that list, find the games you intend to play on it, and from there see whether you're still interested.

I'd get more of these games on PC if I want good performance, but my gripes with that are as follows:

- I can't use a wireless controller, I have to be hooked up at all times or else the TV won't recognize it.
- When I have my controller plugged into my TV, while it recognizes it as a controller, it doesn't recognize it as a PS4 controller, meaning all the button prompts are incorrect.
- Since it's streaming from my room into the TV in the living room, a lot of graphical quality can be lost.
- Can only run up to 1080p

With all these in mind, while I'm hearing people tell me up and down that my PC can run anything at higher quality, I feel like having a PS4 to run games I want to play on my TV would be beneficial for these situations.

Hitman and Nier: Automata are listed among those with Pro support (Persona 5 is apparently boost mode only but it's PlayStation only so w/e), and I intended to get those all on PS4, so there's that.

der garm awards have been announced.

Surprising amount of Nintendo focus, though they have been on a massive winning streak this year so I guess it's to be expected. Though I found it depressingly humorous that they totally fucked up with Fire Emblem, since for Heroes they used an image from Echoes and they called Echoes "Fire Emblem Heroes: Shadow of Valentia" and used an image from Heroes.

Looks like they swapped the icons for Echoes and Heroes, and yeah, mistakenly called both games "Heroes."

I am a little grumbly that I haven't played Nier: Automata of Persona 5 year since I hear they're brilliant, but I'll probably end up getting them for Christmas. I am admittedly a little wary since apparently they're massive beasts and I'm trying to clear my backlog not make it ridiculously longer, but if they're as good as I hear, I should enjoy myself immensely.

I'm reluctant on Persona 5 because I haven't played any of the others and it feels too late to start, and reluctant on Autoshata because I've never played a Platinum game in this style that I didn't end up quitting.

I'd still rather play 3 and 4 first at least since they were already lauded before 5's release. Even if games in a series aren't technically connected through continuity, I don't want to run the risk of being spoiled by a later game only to go back to a more archaic previous game. It's for that reason I honestly regret starting the Fire Emblem series with Awakening.
