PSVR Thread

PS4 Boost Mode Game compatability List

Rumor is Knack just might come to PS+ next month, or the one after.

Just wanted to let you know we launched a Discord Server for Playstation, Playstation VR...

You can reach it here: https://discord.gg/6WfGFVS or http://discordgoons.com

Get titanfall 2 it's really good.

loving enable 2FA already and stop posting in this thread about how Sony won't let you deactivate devices for 6 months

Here's sony's customer support number:
800-345-7669


Should I get a pro

Yes

What if I don't have a 4k TV?

If the game is patched for the PRO it might still help with framerate and such. Some games do actually run worse with the pro.

Oh, ok, but I mean--do I REALLY need it?

No

Well, convince me to get a pro. I don't really want to support these console "refreshes" y'know?

Dude just do whatever you want gently caress

Should I get a 4k TV

Sure if you want

What TV should I get?

KS8000. The 60" panel was outsourced so you should *probably* avoid that size, but I'm sure you wouldn't be able to tell a difference regardless. Costco's KS8000 also has a different bezel that is darker, I prefer it.

The KS8000 seems nice but I don't really want a smart TV. I mean, I can't not connect it to my wifi because reasons, and I don't want it to watch me jerk off to my animes

Ok then go spend extra effort and money to find a non-smart TV.

I thought the ending was nothing special but I bought it hoping for a game of exploration like its predecessors (1 more than 2 I guess) and it was definitely not that.

Alchemy's way more simple than it seems since all the important stuff only has to be crafted once then regenerates for the rest of the game.

The Vita is a really cool piece of tech tbh. It's a shame it's all but abandoned--animes aside. There's a good amount of fun non-anime games or "light anime" (just made that up). Especially if you have had PS+ for any amount of time you'll have a huge backlog

I'd recommend it to anyone honestly. Remote play is cool--better with the PS4--but I find it gimmicky and can't see any reason to use it. Maybe if I had a wife that hogged the TV or something. Some games do remote play well with the control scheme.

Anyways yeah they're pretty cheap these days so I think it's worth it

Not letting this effort post get lost to the last thread. I just got this in the mail and about to open it up. Let me know if you guys have any questions.

Nostalgia4Dogges posted:

Right, so I like buying things I don't need.

I spent a while googling about the Razer Raiju and Nacon Revolution.

Neither are sold in the US yet and there's no possible date because of licensing and all that. You can find various reviews about both online. They are both wired. From what I gathered the Nacon seems more recommended--but also is cheaper. I assume that's why. The Razer seems more FPS orientated as it has physical trigger stops, and two extra bumpers? The other you can adjust the deadzone or whatever for the trigger but no stops. The Nacon has raised thumb sticks, the left is concave and right is round. Per google and youtube apparently the FPS freeks will fit on the Nacon sticks, but you probably don't need them. It also has adjustable weights and apparently a lighbar (which you can adjust via the PC app and turn off?) but it will not track VR. Reviews say the sticks seem "loose." Neither are preferable for fighters, but seems the Nacon would be better for that. The nacon also swaps the stick layout to the xbox fashion, which I prefer. The razer seems to be sold out everywhere overseas. It is quite a bit more expensive. Aside from the things mentioned above comfort seems to be what you prefer. A few people seem to equally hate both controllers for being uncomfortable, but I think it just depends what you are used to. They both have four buttons on the bottom to replicate paddles but have completely different layouts.

The nacon has a PC exclusive program that has 4 profiles and a ton of overwhelming features/settings you probably don't need. You can't remap your buttons without the program, The razer has no program but you can remap on the fly.

Anyways you can order both from amazon.co.uk or apparently https://www.game.co.uk/. Amazon says it does not ship to the US on the item description but I just placed my order and per google/reddit people have been getting theirs no prob. Again, the razer one is sold out everywhere. I would like to try it out at least. I ordered two--which is the purchase limit--from amazon UK for 223.96 with expeditated shipping. Says guaranteed delivery date is January 11th. Regular shipping for the 21st-23rd was $9 less. Tax is removed at checkout but there is a shipping fee to make up for it. It says the nacon is 80 pounds but at checkout it says 75?

So yeah, two is the limit. I got an extra because hey, it's coming from across the world, why not. Hook up a goon or sell it locally.

Anyways there's my long effort post wall of text

I feel like even 20 years from now people will still play and be nostalgic for NES/SNES games. Those games were stupid hard and unfun, it's just the only options we had at the time.

Can someone just go try to trade in their busted up DS4 to GameStop and tell us what happens

Nostalgia4Dogges
Jun 18, 2004

Only emojis can express my pure, simple stupidity.



So not that anyone asked but I got the Nacon Revolution from the UK AMA

My initial post about it: Link to post

My impressions so far:

Makes me appreciate the DS4 for being a pretty solid all around controller. I do have a xim4 but I play console so I can couch lounge. Yes I know lapdesk setups exist.

First off, if you get this don't try to jam and twist the cord into the controller like an idiot like me and bend all the pins.

The software gives you a ton of options you don't need. But there's some presets on there. It's a bit buggy and for whatever reason I wasn't able to re-assign the buttons until I renamed the profile.

The controller is made of a nice hard rubbery surface. The joysticks are as well and it's pretty slick and not grippy at all. The left joystick is concave. They're otherwise smooth and solid. The right joystick does in fact fit my FPS Controlfreek Ultras but would probably damage the side of the joystick as it's grooved, wouldn't affect performance though.

The joypay is kind of weird but nice. I would say the controller is definitely not for someone with bigger hands. The included weights are a nice touch. There's two slots on each side for the weights and you get three pairs of weights. I put the two heaviest on the side towards me and the lightest ones away from me and found that feels most comfortable. The cord kind of pulls the front of the controller down a bit so this helps counter that.

The triggers are nice but definitely different. The bumpers are a bit tough to hit. The buttons are quite large, like an old person's remote. They're also really close together and have a bit of a mushy feel.

There's four rear buttons, which is why anyone wants these controllers in the first place. Your firngers rests between them naturally. Two of them are very natural to hit and would make an ideal button for jump. The others is a bit of an odd movement pushing your fingers away--wouldn't be ideal for a panic type situation or where you wanted a really fast response.

I play a lot of titanfall so after a bit of messing around i'm trying this setup

Left button: crouch
Right button: jump
Left front: change weapon
Right front: reload

Overall pretty good I'd say. I'll probably remap the joypad buttons (up, left, down, right) to triangle, square, etc. Definitely need to give it more time. The joysticks aren't very tall but definitely let you raise the sensitivity a bit. I might put my FPS freeks on them at some point. I've never used a controller with paddles but I'd think these are much easier to hit.

Welp that's all thanks for reading god bless

headset chat

Anyone grab the Sony Platinum headset yet? Looks like some vendors have already been selling them (GameStop?). Reviews seem to be both good and bad

I know a lot of you have probably seen me talk about the Lucidsound line of headsets. I got their LS30 wireless stereo headset and had been eagerly awaiting the LS40's which is their "premium" headset with 7.1 VSS that came out just recently.

As much as I want to support them..I just can't recommend the LS40 at all. The sound is "hollow," which is the best way I can put it, and voices just sound real quiet. The LS30 is definitely worth checking out though and I've enjoyed using mine the last long while

Amazon ships the Platinums on the 19th it looks like. I'd like to try them out before I return the LS40 and compare them a bit. I'm really not one to return poo poo but they just really don't sound good at all

I really hate wires and like to walk around my place with my headset on like a doofus, I'm considering just getting a high end wired headset
