You're not allowed to be positive about it, IT HAS PROBLEMS! Very vague, barely explained problems! 

 

I'm more concerned with the handles not being big enough like the PS4 pad which always gives me hand cramps. Well not concerned. I'm probably 3 years away from considering whether to get one.

It's bigger than PS4.

 

Anyway....

 

I'M READY

 

is the new single by Jaden so here's the music video featuring lots of game footage.

I'm having a real dilemma about Demon's Souls. How tough is it relative to Bloodborne, and how much cool exploring do you get to do? I was really enjoying BB, but I ran out of skill and enthusiasm for bosses halfway through. I wasn't going to get it, but it looks so good.

 

Agree it looks stunning but I've watched some of the boss fights and thought could I really kill that? No chance!

I don't have the reaction speed and skill level. I'll just enjoy looking in through the shop window and drooling ...

In some ways the world structure makes it a lot more straightforward and bite size to get used to the level and enemy design - there are some classes which can be a bit overpowered at first and let you engage enemies at a distance (the royal/mage) and unlike bloodborne you have easy access to shields which can allow you to tank a bit more. With some relative patience it is likely easier than Bloodborne - there is a good amount of exploration in each level without being overwhelming. 

 

I would say the level design is a little less kind than Bloodborne; more cheap deaths on first run through. I also tended to get lost more, but the dreary graphics were largely the cause there - Bloodborne had clearer landmarks for me to orient by, which I need as I have rubbish spatial awareness in games.

 

Of course, I'm also an impatient hack and slasher, so that made Bloodborne's aggressive combat suit me a lot more than DS's more measured affair.

 

Bloodborne, by contrast, I found to have considerably more challenging bosses. So if they're the particular source of frustration for Uncle Mike this may well be a more manageable game!

I don't have a log in for the telegraph but Jim Ryan's done an interview with them:

 

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/gaming/features/playstation-ceo-jim-ryan-70-fair-price-ps5-games-launch-line/

 

"Talking to the Telegraph, Sony boss Jim Ryan was tight-lipped on the game. When asked if God of War: Ragnarok is a PS5 exclusive, Ryan simply said: “Sorry. I’ve got nothing to say about that today.”"

I feel really lucky I'm too exhausted at the moment to even expend energy looking forward to this. I tried to convince my wife to bunk off on Thursday to wait in for it but she said she doesn't want to be sacked. Really find out who your friends are.

It's expected to be cross-gen isn't it?

This guy is a bit of a dick, isn't he? He's either got nothing to say or he just gets it wrong.

Trawling the firmware update thread on resetera (so you don't have too)

 

A lot of people are now posting who haven't had any issues since launch. 

 

A whole lot of bun fighting... The usual 'its normal for a hardware launch to have issues' Vs I paid $500 for this and it crashes occasionally, this is unacceptable, Sony really screwed up this time'...

 

Anyway internet shenanigans a side I can derive from all those posts is... Most people have run with rest mode some with external HDDs of various configs with no issues. A couple have a legit issue with ghost downloads. One who had an issue with the external HDD found it now works in the latest update. 

 

All because Sony can't admit there's a fault by putting it in their change list for the update...

No issues so far for me and I even left it on overnight in rest mode whilst transferring data from my ps4 pro.

 

Been playing Astrobot some more and oh my days, it just puts a smile on your face. The gpu song (it'll make sense)! :lol:  The PS Labo. :wub: All the game references and there are far far too many to mention. The textures on artefacts and everything, jesus it all looks so bloody lovely! The music, the whole thing just makes you grin and someone has been playing a lot of Mario, which is fair enough. Truly joyful.  :D

It is very nearly time to pack up the PS4 Pro and put it to one side till I figure out what to do with it.

Complete cable rearrangement is needed.

I was going to do it today but I’m in the middle of a slight Apex addiction so tomorrow morning....bye bye.

 

Can’t believe it;s been 7 years. I still feel like it’s got 3 years left in it.

I am so fucking excited for this launch. I haven't really cared about consoles for a while now but I'm going through a phase of being fed up with multilayer games so I've been so excited for the last 2 months waiting for all the big single player worlds to explore. 

 

I'm so tempted by Miles Morales if only for how good it will look on my tv but the 8 to 10 hour gameplay time I hear mentioned is putting me off! 

 

Maybe cod?

A few more posts saying controller charging and external drives are now working. Seems Sony is on it for our launch :)

 

I'm just seeing a lot of complaints in that update thread but then maybe it's like that all the time there, there's definitely a lot more shouting into the ether on that site. The External storage is a worry as there's so many games I want to install from my existing Pro and the PS+ Collection as well as Demons that I'm going to have to get an external. Sony's silence doesn't install confidence to be fair.
