  5. Free PS5/XBS upgrade incoming. I haven’t played this game, but I’d be interested to see what they can due with the haptics on a game like this. Star Wars and force powers seem perfect for that kind of stuff (feeling the lightsaber hum, tension on the triggers while doing a force pull etc).

  6. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Right away, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag makes very clear what kind of game it intends to be. It starts on the deck of a wooden ship in the Caribbean. A storm rages. Dark clouds loom overhead. Lightning flashes across the sky. Torrential rain pours on the deck. Huge waves rock the tiny ship. An enemy fleet directs their fire at you. You stumble your way to the wheel and take command, desperately hoping to survive the battle. This is not your typical Assassin’s Creed. This is a pirate simulator. I always knew this was “the p

  10. How to get a good run going in Returnal from Biome 1 1. Take your time and explore. Understand what type of room you are entering before you go in and use your mini-map and standard map to make sense of this. Things to know: Entrances with a blue triangle shape doorway are optional/item paths. These rooms usually include chests and upgrades but come with the risk of tougher enemies but are mostly doable. Entrances in yellow with a star over the door are challenge rooms. They include the toughest of the toughest enemies. High rewards, high risk. Entrances with stan

  11. @Starhawk Hey, that’s me! My early impressions are thus: I love the setting. I love the story. The combat is executed really well. It’s both challenging and fair. Why, oh why, though, does it have to be a rogue-like? I’m not typically one to be bothered by dying in a video game, but there is something about being sent back to the very beginning and having to start all over that just bugs the holy hell out of me. I eventually got over it with Dead Cells, and maybe if I keep at it, the same will happen with Returnal. At the moment, though, I’m just a wee bit frustrated by

  12. Just some really quick comments. I played maybe 30-45 mins last night: The pacing and flow of this game at the beginning is really great. You want to keep pressing forward to see what's in the next room. The feedback on the controller is insane. The adaptive triggers give L2 a satisfying half press for quick aim. Fighting games should use this to turn triggers into normal buttons for quick response. The visuals and sound design really feel next-gen (well, until Ratchet is out)

  13. Now the fun begins: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021/04/report-apples-m2-chip-has-entered-production-and-will-ship-as-soon-as-july/ Ironically, my need for a new machine has suddenly become much less pressing. I brought home a pretty well spec'ed iMac from work. Core i9 3.6Ghz with 40GB RAM. Since I have full admin rights, I moved my personal accounts onto the machine, so it's my main computer for the time being. This will also have the side-effect of making WFH a pretty permanent thing now.

    The Retro Gaming bug

    I posted shots of the Saturn MODE install I had done a few weeks back along with the add-on of the power board from Mobius Tech. I wanted to do one last thing which was to swap out the 3D printed mounting bracket that Stone Age Gamer had sent and replace it with the far more useful one from Laserbear.net. The one I was using forced me to use kapton tape to hold the SSD down and it leaves a blank space where the optical drive was. No good. It also means having to reset the console back to the MODE menu to “swap discs” and having to take the Saturn apart to access the SD card slot to update firm

  17. Sony has decided not to end purchases for PS3 and Vita as originally planned. The PSP store will still shut down on July 2 as originally planned though. Good to see. The only question I have is how long will Sony continue to support the stores for these old consoles.

  18. So even though I don't contribute much to this thread I do like to share a success story. I don't know if it's worth being proud of, but I managed to go down from waist size 38 to 36. I haven't been 36 in 12 - 15 years. And the size 36 is even starting to feel loose around my waist.

  20. Feels damn good. I managed to take him out using only one large health pack. I did find an astronaut before I reached him but died before I got to him, so I didn’t have it anymore. I also had a level 7 Tachyomatic Carbine, which I think made all the difference. It was enough firepower to finally whittle down his health to zero on that third stage. I’m scared to go on! 😭

  26. Greenland - The rare disaster movie that eschews effects laden set pierces to instead focus its attention singularly on a family trying to survive. Listen, I’m not a Gerard Butler fan and I’m also not big on the whole “asteroid coming to destroy the Earth” genre so this thing already had started on shaky footing with me. However, this movie is both exceptionally well paced and extremely entertaining. Grounding it in the family drama of these characters surviving at all odds helps a great deal on selling the “reality” of the story and the impending doom that’s around the corner. It legit surpri

  27. Thanks, guys! I appreciate the fact that you enjoyed my write-up of the game. I admit, it was a hard one to finish. Not only was there was a lot to talk about, but I was also sick last week. That made it much harder to muster the energy and concentration I needed to put together something that was both coherent and enjoyable. I do have one thing I'd like to add to it. One of the reasons why this game was so enjoyable for me was that I got to share parts of it with my son. My oldest boy, who just turned 9, has a love for all things nautical. He loves big ships, naval battles, and he

  29. It's some combination of: Each character shares a largely consistent control scheme but feels very distinct, whether it's Iron Man being a flying glass cannon, Black Widow grappling onto far away enemies, Hawkeye's boomerang arrows, Thor pinning enemies against the wall with Mjolnir, Hulk's ability to heal himself by fighting, or Kate Bishop's rapid teleporting A lot of these characters really come alive once you get deep in their skill trees. One clever design decision is that even a maxed-out tree won't let you have every possible upgrade at once, so there's still room to tweak/

  30. 36 is pretty damn good. I was down to a 38 but have snuck back to a 40 — didn’t get in as many daily walks during the winter although I kept riding the Peloton. Now that the weather is warmer and the days longer, I’m getting both in again, and the shorts are already feeling looser. Hoping to be down to a 36 by end of summer.

  32. Got the shuttle finished, and I think I have a place to put it. Had to more some more non-lego display stuff elsewhere, but this keeps all the NASA sets together (along with the giant castle that won't fit anywhere else, except where the other castle is): The discovery model is pretty awesome, and I really like the alternate mount for the telescope. Makes it look more dynamic. Seriously starting to run out of display space though....but there are double VIP points on right now, so I went and ordered the new Darth Vader and Scout Trooper helmets.

  37. We are both part of the problem. The original game recreated with the visual fidelity of the sequel at 60fps and additional gameplay tweaks to take advantage of what they learned with Part II? Add in the new Factions multiplayer that's been in the works for some time and that's an easy damned buy for me. EDIT: A pack-in with both games with Part II getting PS5 enhancements along with Factions is again....a very easy buy.

  38. But isn't the point that Sony has taken things off the menu? I get that Japan Studios wasn't exactly churning out one barnstormer after another, but that I had games like Puppeteer and Gravity Rush to look forward to was a big part of what invested me in the PlayStation ecosystem. Sure, they could farm that out to an external developer, spin up a new team, or fund a unique IP that's equally/more compelling, but it doesn't seem like that's where Sony's attention is focused. I think at least some of your concerns are a conflict between the way Jason approaches longform articles vs.
