Anyone use PSNow? I'm using the trial version on windows and I'm getting kicked from the server due to a poor connection within 10 minutes every time. The Sony troubleshooting site says the UDP Port is 2053 so I've opened it and my connection is about 50mb/s and is wired (also I'm in the UK).

Is it just a generally unreliable service or is there a different port I need to open to use the service on PC?

I used PSNow like last year and it was working fine. Managed to play Asura's Wrath for PS3 on it to completion. There are sometimes it would just not load the service but it would work on retries.

Speaking of HZD news Iíve gotten pretty far. Only have two tallnecks still to climb and two couldrons to complete. I just met the sun king and been asked to find that missing sister. How far along am I?

I just fought, inside one of those couldron cores, a thunderjaw for the first time Iíve ever encountered one. My god that was a fight. I scanned it and studied the log entry, noting its most susceptible to tearing off all its hardware. I knocked two tearblast arrows at once on my heavy bow and immediately got to task breaking off both its disc launchers. With those gone I fired four more tearblasters right at itís drat face, blowing off a ton of weapon and radar gear and armor. I mean it exploded like chicken feathers. It didnít appreciate it. I barely survived it chasing me around the arena, sweeping me with its tail, used up most of my health satchel. But, I finally made way to its very own disc launcher on the ground and picked it up. I literally hear Aloy say, ďitís my turnĒ as I start just loving mag dumping into that thunderjaw. By the time I had emptied the second disc launcher weapon into its flank, it was nearly dead. A few fire arrows to its exposed center was all it took to finish it off. It was awesome.

And then as Iím leaving I get the notification I can override those now. Holy poo poo.

Yes love hearing stories like this. Itís so fun remembering when you were so overwhelmed but came out on top. Itís what games were made for.

Something I love about the enemy design in HZD is that enemies like Thunderjaws and Stormbirds are terrifying when you first face them, but by the endgame you develop your skills and strategies and learn ways to safely eliminate them in 30 seconds.

Nah. Offhand, I'd say I haven't learned a damned thing.

I still remember seeing a Thunderjaw for the first time in my way to the big city. I gave it a wide berth because I was just trying to reach the main town. A couple of NPCs started fighting it so all I see is laser blasts and this giant monster bellowing off in the distance.

My first Stormwing was also on the road, I stopped to fight dinner Glinthawks and suddenly this giant loving bird is right on top of me and kicking my poo poo in.

I love the encounter design in HZD so much.

I had a launch PS4 Pro and I thought it wasnít really that loud.

Then I went to a friends house who also had a launch PS4 pro and that thing sounded like a jet engine. It sounded as loud as a blower fan Graphics Card in a PC. We both donít really play consoles as much and his is well ventilated so I doubt itís dust. Apparently itís a luck of the draw depending on what brand fan you got.

I feel bad for people with loud PS4s itís a lottery. I hope this isnít the same for the PS5

N:A isn't even really consistent with the 'manual saves' thing which I could appreciate, it absolutely does auto saves after certain important plot points. It's just a random 'gently caress you' moment that wasn't really thought through.

It's indefensible so don't try. It's a flaw in the game so just try to get past it. Play on normal or easy if you have to, there is no penalty for difficulty switching.

yea, i got past it the second time pretty easily. just evade and assail the thing with bullets. i don't think it even hit me. basically what i've learned is to just pump r2 and use the pod to shoot. was fighting everyone with my sword the first time.

but man, that came out of nowhere the first time. really, what the hell? never seen that.

Yeah, this time I don't disagree. As others have said, there was almost nothing consistent about how save games are handled. And it's especially bizarre that when you use the transporter thing, which is to some degree tied up in that, the other Android that you're traveling with just kind of ends up wherever you go. Did they run there really fast? Would it have been so hard to make those devices with two android slots in them?

Days Gone is great, but it is more of that, in a slightly different flavor. I'd say go for Death Stranding next.

I always thought it just dropped the body into a basement or diassembled it and opened up for the next user, and that on the arriving end it took one of the stored bodies out of the basement or 3D printed a new one and reconfigured it to reflect the incoming data.

Death Stranding is weird, and really thereís no way to categorize it or compare it to anything thatís come before. But, itís an amazing and incredibly gripping journey and I absolutely loved it. Hideo Kojima did it. He drat straight had a thing to say and an idea he wanted to see through and he succeeded at its creation in a beautiful way. Absolutely finish it. Just be.. open minded for the first few hours until you get to chapter 3.

It's imperfect in a lot of ways, but perfect where it counts for me. I loved the ending. Not many games leave you feeling completely satisfied with the outcome. Death Stranding felt complete and rewarding in those final hours.

You just defended it by telling people to switch difficulties and exploit the no penalties, the exact kind of thing that the game draws attention to within its systems, even down to the way it handles trophies!

Yeah that's what I thought too (that the only thing unique about the androids was the contents of their black box, which gets uploaded to the space station periodically), but that doesn't explain what happens to your partner.

I actually thought she voiced Abby until the end of the game. They sound so much alike. Then I looked it up and laughed that she actually did do a voice in the game but it wasn't her.
