  1. First major PS5 update hits tomorrow. It includes cold storage for PS5 titles on extended USB drives, cross generation share play and more.... https://blog.playstation.com/2021/04/13/ps5-april-update-brings-new-storage-options-and-social-features/

  2. 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.

    My fixed PSX arrived today. All is well. PS1Digital works a treat and I spent a good three hours sampling games on the X-Station. Quite pleased to finally have it back.

  5. There's jailbreak software for my Oppo 203 floating around that's...interesting. It effectively opens up unfettered access to being able to play MKV, BDMV, ISO backups from a server, and of course there's no concerns with Dolby Vision...etc since the player is effectively going to be playing back those files just as it would were there a disc in the drive. The hack of course also runs on the Chinese Oppo clones that can be acquired which are, for the most part, Oppo players without the drives (possibly with slightly inferior a/v output on a account of some internal differences to the original

  6. We finished this a couple of days ago, and I do feel like the second half of the game is much more successful in making me feel invested in these characters and their relationships. It's a dangerous thing to say with so much of 2021 still remaining, but this is going to be hard to unseat as my Game of the Year. It's unreal just how many different mechanics are introduced (with a fair number of variations as well) and that every single one of them is executed perfectly.

  7. I was never a huge fan of the elite. Too much screen, not enough buttons, and it didn't balance as well in the hand as the one. Really, I think the Harmony one was the best remote they ever made, and the 565/665 are very similar, just without the touchscreens. The harmony software has also been a mess since the beginning. The one still uses the old desktop app where you could only have one profile per login. I should probably back up a version of that just in case now that I think about it... I don't know much about HDMI CEC, but if nothing else I'd have to upgrade all my gea

  8. 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.

  10. I spent the first hour or two of this being really quite resentful that this was a "videogame" game. The Oldest House is so atmospheric, and the story stuff works so well through discovering notes that link to each other etc, but the shooting was just horrible. I'm rubbish at aiming on joypads, and having to pick out headshots because everything was a bullet sponge was just frustrating. Then the paranatural powers started to unlock, and so did the weapon upgrades. Now, around Chapter 7, I'm absolutely loving the game, even when it gets a bit frustrating (that Anchor boss is one I'm

  11. Risk aversion isn't surprising in this environment. The restructure of Japan Studios should have been a big hint of where Sony's focus is and given that teams history a bit of a red flag. A remake for a game released in 2013 and that already has a very good remaster is unnecessary to me but then I also said in the The Last of Us II thread that I wouldn't say no to a full remake at the visual fidelity of TLOUII either, so I'll assess once they show it and considering its one of my favorite games of all time, well.... The Days Gone 2 situation doesn't surprise either me g

  13. Pac-Man 99, a battle royale re-working of the original Pac-Man, released today on the eShop. It's free with NSO subscription like Tetris 99. [Edit] It is available to download but as of now, it cannot be played yet.

  15. Whelp, that big pile of Marvel United is about to be joined by Zombicide 2.0. Should arrive Friday. Box is 15.7 pounds. 🤪 I was about to say I'd nothing else until 7th Citadel, but Middara's first wave is hitting the US real soon. Too much stuff.

  17. Oh my, they added a “check sync status” for cloud saves per game....thank goodness! You can uncheck this which will change the option to upload/download save if you want to manually do it as opposed to having the PS5 do it. It’s the little hidden QoL updates that are more meaningful than some of the big ticket items to me lol. Also, yiu no longer have to hit options and select to unbundle a hidden trophy now. Just hit square. There’s also a game follow management list, too.

    Fiber Internet

    That's super weird. AT&T seems to still be expanding here in the DFW metroplex though. At&t informed my brother (He's in Richardson) he know could get fiber - and he did. I got it last year (but had it available for a few years). He got the same price I did too.. $50 for 1G service for a year, $70 after that.

    Deja Vu is on the list. I read somewhere it takes around 4-5 hours to finish. Took me over 30 years. Don’t judge.

  23. Using the arrival of Zombicide 2.0 to re-evaluate all the "bits" that have accumulated for the series through multiple Kickstarters. 2.0 came with updated survivor spawn cards for all the existing content, so it's all backwards compatible with everything I have, which is awesome and a large reason why I ended up backing. But all those KS mean I have a lot of redundant bits + pieces, and stuff I just won't ever use. Plus, 2.0 effectively replaces everything in the base 1.0 box.... So I've got all three big boxes out, pulling out everything that makes up the base 1.0 at a minimum to rebuild

    #10 is a playthrough of the excellent Klonoa Door to Phantomile to break in the new PS1Digital/XStation. It’s a lovely 2.5D platformer but the physical copy has gone up in price to insane levels. Even the Wii remake is over $100 now and it’s PS2 sequel is skyrocketing as well (I thankfully own that one). Anywho, I completed the game and rescued all of the world inhabitants to unlock the extra vision, too. It’s a blast to play and it’s available for $5.99 as a PS Classic on the PS3 so go grab it while you still can.

  25. This is sort of true. Logitech did release a version of the software that was compatible with 64-bit systems. However, it was based off an older version of the software. It will get the job done if you still have an older remote, but it’s not ideal.

  27. I just read this, and immediately tried to go and buy a backup remote. Nothing on Amazon/Best Buy anymore (at least the Canadian sites). I don't have as many devices hooked up as I used to, but I still want to have one thing that will control the TV, receiver, HTPC, and console, and right now that's the Harmony One that still works in my basement, and a Harmony 5something (precusor to the 665) in the den. I do have one of the hubs as well, which comes with a small remote that should do in a pinch, but I have a feeling that once the One dies, that'll be it. I don't think I found anything els

  28. Another thing to consider — if you have the hub, you can install the Harmony app on your iPhone or iPad and control everything from there. It’s probably not the ideal solution you’re looking for, but I’ve used it a few times and it works reasonably well.

  29. I'd grab one sooner if you can as once word spreads I think remaining stock will go fast, perhaps as quickly as this weekend if the scalpers see an opportunity (and they always bloody do). I missed the Elite for about £130 (!) in late 2018 and waited ever since for it to get as cheap again but it never did. It certainly won't now, but I've too many expenses in the months ahead to grab one for myself on a whim today sadly. Amazon still have stock as I write this (£238). I really can't see any competition at their price point so it's a shame Logitech won't even see the va

  30. Excellent. Opted to take a bit of a break from games this month, though plan to do a run through on Mario Galaxy before Village is out, then I'll get Last of Us II before diving into this (though I might want something more colourful and fluffy between the two).

  31. Huh, I didn't realize this was releasing. It's basically a remake of the original Master System game with new levels, modes and alternate boss battles. I'm not the biggest Alex Kidd fan out there but I really like the look of the game.

  33. I love how fast paced and chaotic the games get. I just got my first victory after 20 games (~45 min of playtime). It's a really great addition to NSO. It's a shame they took Mario 35 away because these exclusive battle royale remixes of classic games are a big part of NSO's appeal to me since Nintendo is so lax about adding more NES/SNES games to NSO.

  34. Arrow are doing an alternate edition of their Bird with the Crystal Plumage release that features some gorgeous Italian artwork: I much prefer that to the art they've done with the English cover. This will be an edition of 1000 copies according to the specs. Worth noting both editions appear to feature the cover below as the reverse sleeve, so there is at least an alternate option with the English slipcase edition (which may carry over to an eventual non ltd edition):

  38. Announced with a PS Blog post: https://blog.playstation.com/2021/04/07/abandoned-a-cinematic-survival-sim-hits-ps5-later-this-year/ I'm not a huge fan of the narration there but the game looks the part. Its likely very much in the vein of "The Forest" which folks should try. It's rather good. Definitely one to keep an eye on. They say a tech demo is coming soon and its obvious the game is early judging by the trailer. I wonder if they'd do a PSVR2 version? Seems right in line with this type of experience.

  39. Unless you look like a bodybuilder, or are at least in better shape than most Marvel superhero actors when they are on screen, I usually recommend to skip the isolation exercises and focus on compound lifts like Deadlift, Squats, and Presses. You'll get good lats and traps from doing those (specifically Deadlifts in this case) along with working your core and a ton of other muscles. Personally, compared to anywhere else on my own body, my lats are probably more developed than most anywhere else, and I like deadlifting. You can add the isolation stuff for fun if you like doing them
