18:34 - Clintagram I saw that. Looked a little too realistic. I wouldn't mind a Jak IV, I loved the first one. The second one is a little rough though I've heard Jak 3 improves upon it a lot. I don't know what Naughty Dog will do after Uncharted 4.
18:23 - Dima Some concept art came out from a new cancelled Jak game. My word i'm so glad they cancelled it lmao
18:09 - !J.O.O.E.! It's worth sticking with for the story.
18:06 - Clintagram Well, I was playing Jak II and it was making me rage so I had to start a new game and I had P4 already downloaded and on my backlog. Enjoying it so far. We'll see.
18:02 - Redn1ght Oh shit, since when did we last see J.O.O.E on shoutbox? And the first thing: Be grumpy as usual.
17:52 - !J.O.O.E.! The boring, super-grindy battles and bland Tartarus (or whatever it was in P4) almost ruin it for me, despite the great story. SMT: Nocturne was much more fun. At least you can cheat your way through it if you emulate it on PC.
17:42 - Redn1ght Yeah. :P Plus don't forget to socialize in that game and trying to make the right choices. It's gonna help you out eventually.
