  1. Just need to add the caveat that most of the truly bad problems with it are on consoles, particularly the base Xbox and PS4. I won’t be picking it up until the native PS5 version, but hopefully the patches will come quickly for those who bought it already on those systems.
  2. Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS5) A fun sequel, about 15 hours long to do the story. I might go back for side quests/trophies. I played at 30fps with RT etc and it was very nice. Not particularly “next gen” but a good game that plays well on the system. It’s had an update to 60fps with RT that I’d like to try. Destiny 2: Beyond Light (PS4/5) A decent 5-6 hour campaign, with some fun new abilities. More of the same really. The PS5 update this week is great, native 4k60 and feels almost like a new game. Recommended for the gamepass crowd or maybe just trying the f2p parts to try the
  3. It’s been fixed! Get your Valhalla upgrade now!
  4. I like it. There are some bugs in the firmware with rest mode and external drives so I’ve heard, and a couple of games I’ve played have had some issues. I’ll put these things down to COVID/ work from home/ standard early adopter issues. The loading times are fantastic. Less than 30seconds to go from a cold boot to loading your save. The controller is one of the best I’ve ever used. The haptics and force feedback are probably the only next gen features, everything else seems to be same sorts of games but shinier.
  5. That or it’s one of those cases where if they don’t protect the patent they lose it ?
  6. I like the idea of it, but in reality I’ll use a tiny fraction of what it can do and hope for an option to copy the xmb.
  7. Would buy a matte black set of these, but the potential for fancy special editions is nice.
  8. Mafia: Definitive Edition (PS4) Never played the original but Mafia 2 was one of my favourites last gen. Combat, movement and driving all feel a bit heavy, but okay. I enjoyed the setting and story, despite being full of clichés. Worth a play if you fancy a crime story. Despite appearances this is not an open world game so it isn’t bloated with repetitive side quests and doesn’t outstay it’s welcome. I got the trilogy for a good price so might move on to the second one.
  9. But is he small, or far away? If he’s 4 foot 6 it’s reasonably sized, but if he’s 8 foot tall I’ll need a new house.
  10. But, but, gamepass and Bethesda etc. I’m joking, but I don’t know what this means. High temp= high failure potential? Possibly high running costs? Or could it mean that the cooling solution is super effective? Definitely need to see impressions of it running something next gen, which I don’t know if they’ve shown any footage of yet.
  11. Resident Evil 2 Remake (PS4) Just finished Leon A, and I’m done with this game. I got into the series with RE4 and so I play these as action games. This is not an action game, and so I was quite disappointed. I don’t necessarily mind the horror part of it, but the relative lack of ammo and that it takes 20 headshots to kill a basic zombie was frustrating to me. Also Mr X can fuck right off. I actually paid a couple of quid for dlc infinite ammo weapons just to get to the end. With that the game instantly became more fun as it was about the puzzles and atmosphere not the disappointing
  12. PS5 day one because my PS4 is about to take flight and I like the Sony exclusives. I’ll get an X when there’s something I want to play on it or a price drop/redesign. Probably Gears 6 but maybe the Bethesda stuff if that becomes exclusive (although that will probably be a long time coming).
  13. CoD MW2 Remastered (PS4) Irritatingly I bought this a few weeks before it went on PS Plus. When it first came out, to me it was a great game. All this time later and it was decidedly average. Exactly the same CoD gameplay, although with very pretty graphics. The lack of Spec Ops is annoying as I loved that mode. I got suckered in by nostalgia and hopefully have learned my lesson; CoD is not a good franchise (at least for me).
  14. Ghost of Tsushima (PS4) Thoroughly enjoyed this, to the point where I’m mopping up all the side quests and collectibles. It plays like a standard open world Ass Creed type game, but the world is beautiful and it’s very cool being a Samurai. The combat is like the Arkham games, so timing your parries is important. You could also play it in pure stealth but it’s kind of more fun to run in chopping off limbs. To sum up, story is okay, combat is very good, the world and setting are great. It’s also nowhere near as long as AC. It doesn’t really bring anything new to the genre, but it
  15. Shenmue (PS4) Got the platinum, like Wayne. Never played it before, unlike Wayne. A nice change of pace after Last of Us 2. I played Shenmue 2 ages ago on XB, so it was familiar yet different. Going to play 2 next, possibly 3 as well before Ghost of Tsushima.
