It doesn't matter, you can party up regardless of platform using RocketID. You may have to get creative for voice chat though, using discord on your phone or something.

I think if it's Xbox and PC you can use skype seamlessly, AFAIK ps4 doesn't have any voice chat apps that PC or xbox players can tap into.

No shame from here, lol. When I found out I had to make an ID, and how to do it, I was like, "WTF?! How was I supposed to figure that out?"

I'm on PS4, but frequently play with one of my really good buddies who is on Xbox. we haven't figured out live comms and he's a total ball chaser, so it gets a bit frustrating at times. but it's still more fun than playing with randoms.

PM me your rocket ID. I'll add you and if we're ever online at the same time, maybe we can jam out a few games. Or I'm always down for some 1v1 private matches with silly mutator settings.

I had the night free of responsibilities so one night in, and I've already achieved all of the week's Rocket Pass rewards.

placement games: I played 5 games for 2's (somehow went 5-0), played 2 games of 3's (1-1) and 2 games of 1's (1-1). Then played a handful of casual games with my buddy and a few private 1v1 matches.

now if I could just get better at the game, we'd be cooking with gas.

Did they add a co-op feature? I guess each person could control one stick, but otherwise this is more like self co-op.

The Last Guardian was on sale for PS4, so I've been playing that. Very pretty, nice story... but holy cow is the bat-faced cat-bird Trico a pain the backside to control. I spent fifteen minutes this morning pushing the buttons it told me to push to try to convince the idiotic (but adorable) beastie to dive down to the cave so we can move on already. And let's not mention the number of times I go get the bastard some food, place it at his feet, but somehow it's not in exactly the right position, so he just fecklessly paws at it and whines until I move it half a foot to the left.

Aaargh!

On the other hand... if you consider that Trico must be at least partially a feline, his behavior makes perfect sense.

I played it with my daughter on one controller, each of us controlling one of the brothers.

A Way Out is similar, and by the same developer.
