    Dang. I appreciate the suggestion but I don't think I have it in me to play another open world game by Rockstar. Wasn't there a game that people suggested using headphones for? Hellblade or something?

    Oh, yeah, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice has excellent sound design and wearing headphones is recommended for the optimum experience.

    Do you think it'd work with 5.1 or should I not try? Sorry for the questions. I just really want to be blown away (currently playing Avengers and it's not very different).

    Hellblade will be better with headphones. Try something like Battlefield V for a really good surround sound game.

    I played it with 5.1 and it was great, even if headphones are supposed to be better.

    Ended up starting up Ghost of Tsushima since I felt like the Avengers game was hot garbage (okay not that bad but I wasn't having any fun). Holy shit. The game looks and sounds amazing. Works great with my surround sound speakers.

    I'm nearly at the end of Ghost of Tsushima myself and yeah, it's super pretty and has awesome sound design.

    Just a heads up that if you wanted to get any of the bonus costumes for Legends Mode (as per the below tweet) you've got about 4 days left to do it - Legends mode has no story spoilers (though may have some abilities you haven't unlocked yet in the main game if you've just started).

    I've just been playing Legends solo and it took maybe 20 minutes to unlock the first costume, 3 hours or so to get the second and I'm not sure I'll get either of the other two - you start off unlocking one class, and unlock more options as you level so if there's one costume you really want pick that first.

    So, that was weird.

    I was in the middle of the final boss fight in Ghost of Tsushima NG+ when I got an error saying my PS5 was having difficulty reading the disc and made me close the game. I thought once a game was installed the disc was only used to confirm it was a legal copy at start, but I guess not.

    I've noticed the disc drive spinning up at random. I wonder if it does periodic license checks? Not sure what the point would be, but I wouldn't be terribly surprised.

    Yeah I think it does. Even if you aren't even playing the game that's in the disc drive. Which is annoying because the drive is super loud for me for some reason.

    It's loud for everyone, its completely lacking proper padding and feels like an afterthought in design.

    Just want to pop in and say I'm really enjoying Ghost of Tsushima. It's so pretty, and I'm liking the story way more than I thought I would. I do wish there was an armor quick-switch, because I like to change it up frequently. Traveler's clothes for wandering the map and doing side objectives, Ronin for stealth, and one of the heavier armors for straight up combat. I think the Sakai armor is my overall favorite, since I can do a 5-chain standoff and wipe out entire encounters without actual combat.

    Two annoying bugs that it's weird they haven't fixed:
    -Fast traveling sometimes resets all my ammo counts to the maximums from before I upgraded my capacities.
    -The traveler's clothes artifact detection detects Sashimono banners that are being worn by NPCs. That one is really strange.

    I started Spider-Man Remastered yesterday. I had originally started with Demon's Souls when I got my PS5, and that game is very good, but I needed a break from chewing glass for a while and to play a more chill game. Holy crap Spider-Man is good.

    I bought it and still own it on PS4 back in the day, but I really didn't ever play it. I did like the Wilson Fisk tutorial mission and then never played again for whatever reason. Now, I'm actually getting into it on the PS5 version and man. I am realizing what I missed out on by not progressing more on the original version. This game is amazing.

    I just finished it the other day and I agree, although I mostly stuck with Ronin armor. The one real complaint I have is no real 'agency' in the story, if that's the right word. I found myself really wishing they gave you the option to stick to the samurai code, especially at
    The battle that drives the split between you and uncle. I've killed hundreds if not more mongols in melee combat, what's a few more? Nope, straight to poison, no choice. And again at the very end, I even tried just letting
    big spoiler!
    Uncle kill me instead of fighting him but no, you can't just accept his judgement.

    I didn't open that spoiler since I'm mid Act 2.

    I think it's probably good that I don't have a Samurai/Ghost bar I have to manage. It would definitely make me play all one way or the other. I still can't tell if there's a hidden one, or if the game is tracking what I do in some other way, but I'm not going to worry about it. The fact that you have to go Ghost for several missions makes me think/hope they won't do a "you played the evil way, you get the bad ending" trap near the end of the game.

    The Ps5 runs on blood. Didn't they tell you that during setup? Just make sure to drink an apple juice or whatever after long play sessions.

    Speaking of Spider-Man, my PS5 crashed for the first time last night while in the middle of a Screwball mission (as an aside, can I just say I hate that fucking character? She is so incredibly grating to listen to and her stupid ass comes back for ALL THREE DLC CAMPAIGNS AAAAGGHGHGHGH). Camera started spinning as if the right control stick was stuck, and the PS5 would not respond to any inputs - even the PS button did nothing. Only option was to hold down the power button until the PS5 powered off. Started back up and it did the repair database thing. Thankfully doesn't appear to be any lasting damage, although I did lose some Spider-Man progress.

    I eventually got back to the same mission and was able to clear it without the PS5 locking up, but the framerate got awfully choppy during the mission which was strange.

    Huh. I did all of those missions without a hitch, frame rate or otherwise. My girlfriend walked by while I was doing one and she remarked “Ugh. I don’t know this woman, but I already hate her.” :D

    Just blood is fine.

    And now Miles Morales froze on me. At least this time I was able to use the PS button still and try to close the game... which crashed the PS5 and I had to reboot. I really hope this is just Spider-Man bugs and not a PS5 problem.

    I've had crashes in both Spiders-Men and Cyberpunk. The latter I'm sure is it's own fault, and I'm pretty sure about the SM games.
    But playing through Astro and God of War have been perfectly stable, so I doubt it's the console.

    On the hardware side: I think my right trigger is busted

    It gives less resistance than the left one, even when switched off, and it's more sensitive, leading to Eivor sometimes doing a heavy attack in Valhalla when my finger is just resting on the trigger

    I thought it might just be another Valhalla bug, but I went into the controller demo in Astro's Playroom and I can see the difference there too

    Plus there's something rattling around inside the controller on the right hand side

    Just got off the phone with tech support, and I need to package the controller up and send it out for replacement, which can take up to 21 days - almost long enough to make me consider buying another controller for the interim

  • urahonkyurahonky Dayton, OHRegistered User regular
    Yeah I'd probably have an extra available just in case, personally. As much as I like the resistant triggers I had to turn them off in BL3 because it was distracting when you are trying to shotgun spam.

    Don't know how useful this info is, but I've played several games and haven't had too many issues. Nothing unplayable, and some games never had an issue.

    In particular, had problems with:
    Maneater -- ps5 game, occasionally mid/late-game has a memory? issue causing choppiness and needing a restart; also would sit on load when fast traveling once or twice. Neither affected save progress.
    Ancestors -- ps4, can't really remember anything in particular but pretty sure it just flat crashed once or twice; no gameplay issues.
    Bloodstained -- ps4, didn't like rapidly changing rooms over and over while farming money, got a few crashes there. Otherwise stable
    Days Gone -- ps4, weird glitches and load in sometimes; maybe 3 or 4 over the whole game, load in stuff required restart

    Zero issues with 9 other games
    Astro, Bugsnax, Gravity Rush 2, Ratchet & Clank, AI The Somnium Files, Destiny 2, SnowRunner, Zanki Zero

    The PS4 version is apparently a real mess and some of that has carried over to the PS5 upgrade.
