Seriously I want to get out of these woods and never see them again gently caress this entire place

that is specifically why I take the no-snake (well, like 3-or-4-snake) path. gently caress the snake pits.

the one(s) in ioesefkaís clinic? Yeah, I felt bad too, cause theyíre not hostile, but I knew theyíd drop items and I needed the lore so unfortunately they got ground into whirly dirly kin meat

Rdr2 epilogue part 1: So the outfit John puts on before leaving the ranch to go to blackwater/or meet with sadie I'm guessing is his outfit from rdr1? idk since I've never played it.

also John's facial hair is exactly how I kept Arthur's, I'm sure this is intentional but it's kinda confusing! he even has Arthur's hat

also also, being treated to some willie Nelson while riding out from the ranch was ace.

Super Hot is for sure best in VR, but I played the flat screen game after the VR one and still found it really enjoyable. Besides, mind control delete was free for people that owned the original game which was pretty cool of the devs. The least I can do is kick back and enjoy it.

I'm pretty sure there's a way, someone bought me Sekiro for my birthday. I don't know how to do it, though, myself.

Edit: the internet says otherwise, maybe he gave me gift certificates and I'm misremembering...

What is everyone playing this weekend? I am recently off of platting GoTsu and then I beat Modern Warfare Remastered last night as a quick palate cleanser. Not sure what to play next. I'm thinking one of the games I started, got some trophies in, then stopped partway through for whatever reason:

Days Gone
Everybody's Golf
God of War 3
Iconoclasts
Journey
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne
Shadow of the Colossus

Days Gone is probably out as I have some open world fatigue after GoTsu. Also I would like a game with a definite end so MHW and Everybody's Golf are also probably out. If you have an opinion tell me what it is! Also, you know, what you're playing atm.

E: To be clear, I beat Journey once, but it was so fun and short and unique that I would like to play it again someday.

Sometimes I think maybe I play videogames too much, but I'm playing through Act 2 of Ghost and it feels like the rest of the world is on their second or third playthrough and I obviously don't play nearly as much as others. So I might play through some of that this weekend.

I've also got a YouTube challenge in Spider-Man someone put me up to so I will try that for a bit as well.

Itís the one that came with the system. And to clarify, when Iím on the PS4 home screen itís displaying in 4K just fine, but it reverts to 1080p once it gets in game.

I think in the Digital Foundry video they mentioned in the high framerate mode it just outputs in 1080p, are you sure the setting got saved and you didn't misread it or something?

I figured it out. I had to disable the gameís HDR option. Now itís displaying in 4K. That raises more questions on my end, but at least itís progress. Would love to have 4K and HDR both!

Some HDR TVs only support HDR through a specific port. Usually HDMI 1.
