Thread Mortal Shell Enhanced Edition - March 4th, Free Upgrade, 4K 60FPS Series X and PS5 (4k 30FPS Series S)
Oh cool! As a huge Souls fan I always wanted to try this and never got around to it. Will pick this up on PS5. Loving all these late gen games that are getting updates. Is it just me, or is this one of the best generation transitions ever? Obviously if consoles were easier to get it’d be way better.

Thread PlayStation State Of Play returns on thursday (02/25) – Updates and Deep Dives on PS4 and PS5 Games
A lot of people missing that quote before they post. It’s gonna be games only. Temper those expectations. Can’t wait to watch. I want that Returnal deep dive.

Thread The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD announced for Nintendo Switch, available July 16th, special edition Joy Cons, new button controls
I can get behind this announcement. While not my favorite in the series (Wind Waker HD or Breath of the Wild take that prize), the option to use buttons instead of motion controls is a big win for me. Still holding out hope for Wind Waker HD to get ported. *crosses fingers*

Thread PS5 System Software Update Version 20.02-02.50.00 is live
Just saw your post. I was seeing the same errors you were and weeks before the last system update. In my experience it is related to the batteries being low on juice. I was confused because it was glitching only after a couple months of light daily use. Once I put a fresh pair of batteries in, I was able to pair it again and it’s worked great ever since. My theory was that the batteries that come with it were old, low, or the remote just pulls a lot of energy and thrashes batteries quickly.

Thread What is that ONE game in your backlog that you’ve always wanted to finish but haven’t?
I’ve had a number over the years, and I usually get to them. Latest is DQ XI. I purchased it on both PS4 & Switch, and keep meaning to go back. I know I will eventually...I hope.

Thread I want a Resident Evil Remake-Remake
Ahhhh! Ok. Yeah, I got confused when I read your original post then. When I started playing the PS4 port of REmake a month ago...I kept thinking how I would to have the RE2 Remake treatment to that version of the game. I adore REmake so much (I had a Japanese CameCube and imported it when it originally released!), but it's also starting to show it's age with the low resolution of the backgrounds, menus, etc. I'm sure it's low on their list of things to do, seeing as RE4 or Veronica remasters could come first. I can still dream though!

Thread I want a Resident Evil Remake-Remake
I’ve said a very similar thing in other RE threads, so you’re not alone! I differ from your pitch though, in that I’d like it to take the approach of the recent RE2 & 3 remakes. 3rd-person, over the shoulder, fully 3D environments. I love classic RE, but I don’t need to go back to fixed camera. I enjoyed and adapted to it at the time, I simply prefer the newer RE2/3 Remake camera system better at this point. I wouldn’t mind first-person either, just not my first choice.

Thread PS5 Troubleshooting Thread
Sorry if this is already known, and since it was new to me as of last night...I figured I would share something I noticed with Internal Storage and PS4 games on the PS5. It looks like PS4 games that are installed to your PS5 internal SSD take up space both in the section sections. Again, sorry if this is not news. It was to me! In the last few days, I'd installed a few PS4 games to the internal SSD to check them out. I realized my "Other" section was a lot bigger than the last time I looked at it. So, I started deleting PS4 games to see what would happen. Not only would they disappear from the Games and Apps section, but they would take a 4-6 GB chunk out of the Other section too.

Thread PS5 Troubleshooting Thread
From reading a lot of these threads, the common elements I'm noticing from people who have issues:For me, I've had a few crashes in Demon's Souls & one in Astro's, one night my controller didn't charge which ended up being a system settings issue, and one night my DualSense completely discharged itself. That last one is still a mystery! Other than that, it's been quite good comparatively to others on the board. My setup is as follows:

Thread Did anyone here actually beat Chrono Trigger... without a guide?
Yeah, they totally existed, and they were the #1 upsell opportunity for gaming stores. I remember being offered guide books with almost every purchase. No idea how big an industry it was, but it felt huge.

Thread Did anyone here actually beat Chrono Trigger... without a guide?
Yeah I beat it without a guide. During that time, if you wanted a walkthrough, you could usually buy an official book. That was extra cash though, and most people would get through it on their own, call a tip line, or ask their friends.

Thread Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War |OT| Stalin Content
I noticed them when I stopped playing last night, but didn’t try any of them out before switching over to Demon’s Souls. Since I had just played an MP match of Domination I thought the first activity card showed my Dom game with a square button to “resume”. Freely admit I don’t fully understand the system yet. Will try messing with it today...

Thread Destruction AllStars |OT| Party’s Over
Still enjoying the game quite a bit. Played other modes last night and Stockpile is the only one I haven’t tried yet. Carnado is fun, and I routinely fall off the edge in the first 20 seconds of Gridfall with a laugh. Mayhem is definitely the bread and butter for me so far. The single-player missions are fun too! The art style, characters, FX, and animation all really work for me. Also, the frame rate is SOLID, so it all just feels so good to play too. DualSense feels great as others have mentioned, and the main musical theme has been stuck in my head now since the game launched. I agree with some others that I wish there were more unlocks tied to XP/Level progression. My guess is that the devs wanted it to be more free form and let the player choose what they wanted in whatever order. Still makes it feel less satisfying to level up. Interested to see how the game evolves and seeing the little challenges come online already gives me hope. As an aside, I’ve played enough racing games with music (licensed or otherwise) where the devs taste really didn’t work for me, so I’m cool with it. I realize I may be in the minority there.

Thread Let's talk about PS5/Series X load times. Are they at the level you thought they'd be?
I don't see an option for "Exceeded Expectations", so I refrained from voting. I only have a PS5, and so far that's what Demon's Souls did for me. It's just ridiculously fast. Excited to see where we'll be on both platforms, especially with exclusives, in a year or two. Exciting times.

Thread Biggest regret buying console or portable hardware?
I normally don't regret buying consoles or portables. So, this is pretty light on the "regret scale". Having said that, it's the original Wii. It's the least-played Nintendo console I owned, and I've owned them all aside from Virtual Boy. Not trying to troll, just being honest. The extra hassle with the controllers, setup with the TV, and the game library just didn't jive with what I wanted at the time.

Thread PS5 Troubleshooting Thread
The DualSense? Yeah, happened to me the other night. I used the controller to put the PS5 into Rest Mode. Before I did it I checked the battery charge and it had 2 out of 3 bars. I did not plug it in overnight. Next day, maybe 12-14 hours later when I tried using the controller to wake the system, the controller was completely dead and wouldn’t turn the system on. Had to use the supplied cable plugged into a back USB port and then manually press the power button on the PS5 and then the controller started charging. No clue what happened. As an experiment I changed the controller setting to always use the cable instead of Bluetooth when it’s plugged in. Unsure if that will do anything. My wacky theory was that if somehow the controller was still trying to contact the system via Bluetooth and drained it..this might help. Not based on anything, just troubleshooting. Haven’t seen it happen the last couple nights.

Thread Destruction AllStars |OT| Mute voice chat in Activity Cards
I have multiple online Mayhem matches under my belt now and a few Challenges. I'm digging it. I need to try out the other modes still. It feels fresh and interesting. I want to play more, learn more, and keep honing my skills. I feel like I've only scratched the surface on all the characters too and their special moves. Was just playing Muna and her ability to trigger traps while on foot was kinda cool. Honestly, I don't have an issue with (mostly) no music in matches. I'm used to this from other MP games, and when the final countdown music come in during the last 30 seconds or so...it gets me hyped.

Thread Destruction AllStars |OT| Mute voice chat in Activity Cards
I played a few games last night and had a stupid grin on my face. Great call to release it on Plus, as I had no problems finding games at 9:30pm Pacific US. No idea if it was a mix of bots and players, but since I got into games quickly, it was all good. I feel like there’s more depth to uncover in between the unique characters, on foot & car interactions, grabbing the crystals, your special car/move, the different types of vehicles, and learning the map’s traps...and I have only played Mayhem so far. It’s just silly fun, which is exactly what I needed right now. PS: As I was looking through the Character Screen I noticed the main musical theme subtly changes depending on which one you have highlighted. Nice touch.

Thread Digitalfoundry: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order PS5/ Xbox Series X/ Series S - Next-Gen Patch Tested
Great Star Wars game, that I bought on my Xbox One X so I could see the best performance on previous gen. I played through it and enjoyed it, even with the performance issues. If you have an Series X or PS5, like the Star Wars universe, and enjoy Dark Souls systems crossed with Metroidvanias...it's a no brainer to try it out now. Fun game.

Thread Astro's Playroom |OT| Don't sleep on this one
OP is dead on! I started it up thinking I would get some controller tutorials and move on. Fast forward 2 hours and my face hurts from smiling and laughing so much. It is a rare gem and perfect pack-in launch game. Gave me the same feelings back in the day when I first played Mario 64. The sense of nostalgia, awe, an wonder...especially if you are a PlayStation fan. Must play for sure.

Thread Cyber Shadow |OT| A Striking Silhouette
Impressed that this was done (music aside) by a single dev. Some of the first games I worked on were GBC and GBA sprite action/platformers, so I have personal experience here. I’m enjoying it so far, and am part-way through Chapter 2. Playing on PS5, and while I don’t have a 120hz display, it’s very smooth by default. Well worth the price for me.

Started playing PS4 version of REMake (on PS5) last night! Going to keep it simple and mostly just hit the mainline series entries and remasters due to how easily I can access them on my PS5. Just played RE3make in the past few months, so I may skip it.

Thread Wireless headset for next-gen consoles
I know they are expensive, but has anyone tried the Bose Gaming Headset? Wondering if it’s worth the price seeing as you could use it between multiple systems (theoretically) easily. Just for transparency, I’ve got the Sony Pulse 3D headset coming for PS5 as my Sony Platinum has been great.

Thread PS+ February 2021: Destruction Allstars (PS5), Control (Ultimate Edition for PS4/PS5) and Concrete Genie
Next week looks awesome! I don't feel bad at all buying Control Ultimate last year during the Winter Sale, but I'm also a huge Remedy fan. It's great so many others will get to try it if they haven't yet. Excited for the Next-Gen patch. That in-depth look at Destruction All-Stars was exactly what I needed to see too. Excited to try it out too!

Very excited about the "Maiden" demo coming today. I just searched in the PS5 Store, in the Mobile App, and in my desktop browser...don't see the demo anywhere or the ability to pre-order Village. Their sites seem to be getting slammed too. I know someone on this site will let us know when it's available!
