    Nice sales on Amazon. $30 for Sackboy on PS5 is much more like what I wanted to spend.

    Its one of the few games/series I don't mind competitive MP in. Because with all the settings tweaked to realistic you actually have to know how to use mill dots and eyeball basic trig/angle analysis to take shots at more than 100m and throws lots of people that are used to aim assistance out the ass and/or hit scan bullshit way off their game.

    And unloading with an unsurpressed Mosin Nagant makes me feel like Zaitzev or Hayah.

    Returnal is one of those games where the difficulty affects it's sales.

    I think it also launching at 90 fucking dollars in canada is also affecting sales

    One of the first times I got significantly far in Spelunky was when I had a friend round and I wanted to quickly demonstrate the game so I hopped into the daily challenge

    20 minutes later I was pretty sure she'd grasped the concept

    This is how it was for Returnal for me. I started a new run to show my buddy the game and 45 minutes later I killed 2 of the bosses lol

    I can't stand how every single one of them degrades into way, way too much close combat.

    Sniping is hitting a guy from hundreds of meters off, which the games rarely actually allow. They'll give you something like one of those shots during a whole mission, if that many, and then all the rest are sub-200m stuff that is really just regular rifle combat. Nevermind how often they expect you to actually just do some plain third-person commando stuff with an outright machine gun, shooting up people within fifty feet.

  • ProhassProhass Registered User regular
    One of my pet peeves with the sniper elite is all that goretastic headshot viscera explosions don’t actually impact the real world. Ie, the bodies of guys you’ve headshot exploded are actually completely in tact, it’s all basically like a mini cutscene. Like it’s nothing major but once I realised that it took some of the fun out of it for me. I may just be sick in that way

    Hopefully we'll get detachable pants in the next gen only game.

    Seeing rumours of a Ghost of Tsushima PC port, since Sony have taken the ‘Only on PlayStation’ tag off it.

    Surprising given its age, but very nice to see.

    Ghost is such a purely pleasant game. Beautiful and simple and mysterious. Sucker Punch redeemed after Second Son was kinda' meh compared to inFamous 2.

    I heckin' loved inFamous 2.

    Ghost is fantastic, I enjoyed playing that so much.

    At work and friends that are in my social circle the majority are all PC users. I would also say that this same majority have said that if Ghost was on PC they would buy it immediately because it looks great and would be for them.

    So the only way to really upload screenshots is to twittter right? I spent some time uploading them at the max 4 at a time, and now I get a message saying the feature is temporarily unavailable? Is that some kind of Twitter thing to stop mass uploading? Cos it’s super annoying

  • Darth_MogsDarth_Mogs Registered User regular
    You can put them on a USB drive and upload them somewhere from a computer if you wanted. If you mean straight from the PS5, then Twitter's probably the only thing, yeah.

    You can screen cap then send it to yourself via the chat message and then use the PS App to download it.

    You should really just be able to send it to your phone via PS App.

    Okay it took a bit but I think I'm finally vibing with Control. The map is still the worst thing since paper cuts but everything else is solid. The difficulty swings and the fact that it doesn't respawn you at a boss fight kind of drives me nuts.

  • ChiselphaneChiselphane Registered User regular

    Yeah I've been playing Control as well and the map is the worst enemy I've faced. But god does it feel authentic, there are sections that I'd swear I'd actually been in because it is so close to how so many government buildings that were designed in the 50s/60s and are still in use are. Our town hall here in town is tiny and yet it still twists around inside like concrete spaghetti.

    The only recent map I was like "omg I love this" is, weirdly, Jedi Fallen Order. Reminded me of the maps in Descent in the 90s.

    My issue with Control's map is that sometimes it's just wrong. It would be 100% better if you could rotate and see things... Fucking hell we had that on Metroid Prime for the GameCube! There's no excuse!

    I figure 3D maps continue to be so stupidly lacking in games is because it requires actually building a 3D map for the player to use, but it can't be as simple as Metroid Prime (which was mostly just blank, simple polygons) without freaking out executives over the "bad" graphics. So then the map has to be high-fidelity instead of functional and nobody wants to spend the resources on it and we get simple overhead pictures as a map instead.

    There are 100% areas of Control that could be improved, map included (unless its... dismissive tone is design intended to reflect the cosmically indifferent nature of the Oldest House and the universe), but I also look at Control as Insomniac nailing an open world game with Spider-Man or Naughty Dog transitioning from Jak games to Uncharted - Control represents the most ambitious thing Remedy have ever done.

    It ain't perfect by any stretch but I love having a stylish, massive Metroidvania from the makers of Max Payne. That is awesome on paper and overall a ton of fun in practice.

    I will wrestle anyone who freaks out about bad graphics on a 3D map.

    Wouldn't these theoretical executives freak out about having an ugly 2D map?

    I'm currently bouncing between Rift Apart, Control and Returnal, and they run the difference on maps.
    Control's is junk, I can make sure I'm heading in the right direction and that's about it. Rift Apart's isn't great, but I can at least find the general area I'm looking for (but is that collectible above me or below me? It's a mystery). Returnal's is pretty much everything I want it to be (tracking items on the main map as well as the minimap would be nice, but it's a minor issue compared to the others).

    Nobody remembers the singer. The song remains.

    In Rift Apart you can select collectibles on the map and it will create a waypoint in-game that solves your 'is it above or below me' problem

    I think the latest patch for Returnal added items on the main map too!

    I've been using my PS5 mostly to run though my PS4 backlog. Finally on Arkham Knight now and coming off of God of War it looks decidedly last gen. Last last gen, even. I wish they would patch it but it seems that train has sailed.

    Also the batmobile sucks.

    I had some problems with Arkham Knight, but none were more offensive than the staggering number and silliness of its Riddler trophies.

    The best map feature is how effortlessly you can use the minimap to track enemies in real time. Navigating rooms and dodging enemies without the minimap would be nigh impossible, but with the map it's perfect.

    I'm really really enjoying my time with Scarlet Nexus. Good combat, though it'll occasionally bop you without recourse. You'll have to be at least mildly inoculated against anime storylines and Persona-style gift giving and mini stories. That said, the story's been twisty and engaging enough for me.

    Popped in to Ghost of Tsushima multiplayer just to remind myself how it controls and see how long I'd need to wait for a game. There's no way it was more than 60 seconds for a 20-wave survival.

    Kind of awesome it's still going so strong like a year later.

    Guess I’m alone in this but I hated controls ending; I’d loved the game until that point and it actually left a bad taste in my mouth and made me dislike the game as a whole
