I want Obsidian to remake NV now just to see how much they can hollow it out.

Outer Worlds plays like the theme park version of itself, where everything you see is actually just a couple of inches of brightly coloured plaster mouldings over some boring rear end utility buildings.

This is honestly a really good assessment. I like the game but I won't pretend it's anything but a standard bethsoft open worlder with a very thin veneer of social commentary and slick aesthetic.

We already had one MGS remake and it wasn't very good. After Demon's Souls kicked so much rear end I want to see Bluepoint doing an original game, feel like their talent is being kinda wasted doing cover versions of other people's games.

I'm not so sure about that because there's a lot involved with making an original game they just haven't done. They probably don't have a lot of people who would be very key to the process actually, more creative types.

When a tree grows, it is soft and pliable. But when it's dry and hard, it dies.

Hardness and strength are death's companions. Flexibility and softness are the embodiment of life.

That which has become hard shall not triumph.

Part of why I wanted a PS5 was Bugsnax but it turns out it's on PC!

so, given that the MGS voice cast is currently 'doing something', and that Bluepoint has been rumored to be working on something like MGS for a bit, the question remains: original Mei Ling or revised Mei Ling? :haw:

Revised is better but not worth a redo of everyone else, twin snakes proved that. The original recording is waaaay better. Snake sounds fresh from alaska rather than his mgs2 wearyness that hayter can onky do now, theres life in naomis voice... its just great. I hope they use it or give the option at least, just use software to get rid of the cars passing by or something, i mean you cant hear them on ps1 so whats the problem

Well after Astro Bot the first thing we are going to play is the rerelease of Overcooked lol. Ever since we found out that they added accessibility options in the new version of Overcooked a la Moving Out, Lady Corn has been super pumped to play it. So much so that she bought a copy several weeks ago in anticipation of getting a ps5

Eager to play Demon's Souls but I'm gonna wait til it gets a bit cheaper. I've got both Ghost of Tsushima and Dark Souls 3 to finish and I still havent played Sekiro...

Ive got ps+ but theres nothing in the collection I'm interested in that I haven't already played. Maybe monster hunter tho...

1-4 and pw i'd imagine. Can already play V on PSV,
so i dont see it. Tbh, i've only heard that from a rando, but mgs1 from legit sources who got other stuff right. But either way, they gotta bring them all :pray:

i learned it from watching you

Started playing Ratchet and Clank for the first time, seeing the trailer for Rift Apart made me interested, this game is a lot of fun! I can't believe I've completely slept on these games for so many years. Really excited to keep playing this and then for Rift Apart when that comes out. It's kind of funny just how similar the music is to Spider-Man though, I keep imagining myself web slinging while the background music plays in this game. Also I wish it wouldn't pop up that "recording is blocked" notification during every drat cut scene, which apparently from my brief research, you can't shut off on the PS5? Yikes. It's not a deal breaker but it's a minor annoyance every time the game switches from gameplay to a video.

Basically. They will drop some, usually around 11 am (Wednesdayís were most frequent) and then they quickly sell out.

As soon as I got a Twitter notification from one of the stock tracking accounts, it would be time to hit the site and start trying over and over again. Took 6 weeks to show up after the initial success.

I donít know what % of the units are in the hands of scalpers compared to other countries, but the Rakuten marketplace, which apparently has no rules about that unlike some others in Japan, has dozens at least. The prices right now range from 75,000 to 105,000 yen (MSRP is 49,000 yen).

Mercari at least tried to crack down on it. I guess it wasnít successful?

Edit: Iím moving to the Osaka area next month and asked a friend there if there were any more places to get a PS5 in a big city like that and he was like lol no. I guess Iíll take a look around den-den town when I get there anyway though...

It's baffling how roundabout they make it to actually save poo poo without uploading to social media, but I usually just spam my screenshots and videos at those scammer accounts that will randomly bother you with messages. Then I can save them on my phone or PC or whatever without bothering anyone I know.

I wish you could at least just send a message to yourself though. PSN is unbelievably stupid.

How do multiple region accounts work on PSN?

Figure I might as well make a JP one to match my credit card.

Does it work as easily as it does on Switch?

Good luck to you on the move. Osaka is really great.
Iíve been using multiple accounts from different regions (US and JP) since the PS3. You can think of it as being the same piece of hardware for the installs of the game themselves, and then two separate pieces of hardware for everything else, like saves and trophies. You need the currency of the store at the region is in if you want to buy games, and also if you want to buy DLC for that game. It doesnít matter if the game is identical in the other region, the DLC wonít work. Thatís the main deal.

And yeah, even though moving wasnít exactly by choice, Iím looking forward to the Osaka area. Big cities like that have only some interest to me (especially during a pandemic...), but the idea of living a short train ride from Kyoto is something I thought I would never experience.

I guess after I move Iíll have to change my avatar to Sanders wearing Toyotomiís helmet or something.
