  1. Got the plat for Astro’s playroom. So jolly. Played a few hours of both Demon’s Souls and Valhalla. Both run and look great. Playing DS in performance mode as fidelity mode in 30fps is pretty rough. AC in 60fps and the fast loading times is an absolute dream. I’m enjoying the exploration and it feels a lot more natural. The map is less cluttered and there’s much more ambiguity with what they do show you. This could obviously change as I progress though. Looking forward to putting another 150 hours into an AC game. UI feels clunky and definitely needs QOL improvements. (I’m glad
  2. All set up. Only played Astro's Playroom so far. A lot of fun - I mostly hate motion controls though so finding certain sections a bit of a chore. Dualsense feels great and the haptics are tremendous. Getting really inconsistent download speeds. Not sure if it's my Internet, the PS5 or PSN. Looking forward to an all day session tomorrow.
  3. I'm delivery number 110 out of 112 so it looks like I won't be getting it until late afternoon!
  4. Got hold of Yodel to get my tracking number. Adviser was confident I'll get my delivery tomorrow but we'll see. It's in transit anyway.
  5. Just had an email to say that Yodel have issues and might not get my PS5 to me tomorrow. Irritating but I'll just have a day on the Series S if it doesn't arrive.
  6. All my accessories and games arrived today too. Not opening until next week. Payment has just been taken by Game and had the customary email that they're getting everything ready for shipping. Excitement just went up a notch! Having fun with the Series S. Forza Horizon 4 looks and plays incredibly. It's gonna be a timesink for sure. Doom is fun but looks a little groaty I think. Apparently capped at 900p so hopefully the next gen patch will improve on that whenever it comes. Ori sequel is a massive improvement - incredible game so far.
  7. Didn't manage to get much game time in last night after getting it setup after work. It's a neat bit of kit though. Initially everything felt unresponsive but I think this was just because of input lag. Switched my TV to game mode and it definitely improved. Downloaded a load from Gamepass in the end. Ori, Tell Me Why, Forza Horizon 4, Doom Eternal, Outer Wilds, Deliver Us The Moon. Great value for a monthly fee. Annoying that Xbox have seemingly disabled downloads whilst the console is sleeping but never mind. Played about half an hour of Ori which plays and runs gorgeously. Te
  8. PS5 is the main event for me but looking forward to getting my Series S tomorrow and getting started with next gen. Mainly going to be playing Tell Me Why and Ori and the Will of the Wisps in the short term. Looking forward to finally getting to play Forza Horizon 4 also and may give Doom Eternal a shot too.
  9. Anyone else playing Hades? I'm really digging it.
  10. If I remember rightly, the story just fleshes out one of the tribes that isn't as prominent in the main story so I don't think you necessarily need to play it before Forbidden West. It does however add some interesting new enemy types, weapons and is probably harder than the main game. Plus, with the winter vibes, it's definitely worth the time.
  11. Just finished my second playthrough of the main story of HZD. Planning on going through Frozen Wilds again at the weekend. Flew through it on Easy difficulty as I was just looking to remind myself of the story and feel the atmosphere. One of my favourites from this gen.
  12. Now that I’ve got some distance from both TLOU2 and Tsushima, TLOU2 is far superior to anything for me whilst Tsushima drops down. Current order probably looks like: TLOU2 Animal Crossing Tsushima Spiritfarer could supplant Tsushima depending on the finish. Paper Mario was grand too.
  13. Yeah. In reality, I'll likely cancel it. The only games I am likely to play on it in the launch window are Tell Me Why and The Medium. The Switch will remain my indies machine because of the convenience and I'll play all my AAAs on the PS5 so the Xbox would probably just sit there. I'll see if there are any more launch incentives announced before I make a decision though.
  14. Fuck it. Pre-ordered a Series S from Amazon. Not sure if I'll keep the order but glad I've got the option. Expensive couple of months upcoming.
  15. Exclusivity for Deathloop and Ghostwire Tokyo still stands so they'll be on PlayStation first. Exclusivity going forward will be on a game by game basis. I would imagine they'll definitely appear on Switch as Microsoft appear to have a good relationship with Nintendo.
  16. Microsoft purchased Bethesda. Not a big deal for me as I don't enjoy much of their output but undoubtedly huge that all their games will be exclusive to Xbox in the future.
  17. I thought TLOU2 would be the most emotional game I played this year but holy hell, Spiritfarer. Blubbing like a baby.
  18. Fenne Lily is the one today. Been looking forward to it for ages. Doesn't disappoint.
  19. I'm struggling to reconcile my excitement for a high budget Harry Potter game with my current feelings towards JK Rowling.
  20. Think I'll leave Spider-Man for over Christmas seeing as it has those jolly festive vibes. So just DS and Valhalla on launch. Maybe Sackboy also.
  21. Yeah, just the first party Sony titles are announced at £70 at the moment. Mind you, I don't think I ever paid £60 RRP for any physical games this gen.
  22. Demon’s Souls, Valhalla and Spider-Man for me. Also looking forward to Immortals Fenyx Rising which is out just a couple weeks after. £70 for games now also. Disc drive version was the only option for me as I’ll need to trade in games to be able to afford the next one. It is but given Horizon 2 is primarily designed for PS5, I can only imagine how downgraded it would have to be to run on PS4. Plus, those sweet PS5 load times will be worth it. Weird from a marketing perspective for sure. November 19th is a Thursday so it looks like a nice four day weekend is in order. Get that
  23. Already up on GAME so I've just gone with them as I might not be able to get to a screen tomorrow. Gone with the drive and an additional controller for £509. May get a headset too later on if the word is good.
  24. Looking forward to Demon’s Souls and Miles Morales at launch. DS looked incredible. Irritiating that we get it a week later than the other big markets but never mind. Ready to pre-order the big boy tomorrow. Still unsure which retailer to go with.
  25. Miles Morales & Ratchet & Clank are good enough reasons for me. Both should be out in the first six months. Maybe Demon's Souls too. I can't recall the PS4 being a particularly difficult pre-order so can't envisage PS5 being much different (although Covid). Just unsure who to go with. I went with GAME for my PS4 and did get it on release date, but may go Amazon or ShopTo this time. Only a new Hyrule Warriors though as opposed to a traditional Zelda game.
