gently caress yeah, I was just starting to get into Days Gone before I got back into PC gaming and couldn’t take the load times anymore. Like, not only have SSDs spoiled me but Days Gone had truly awful load times on the base model PS4.

Ya I only have a ps4 pro I was about to get it, heard it runs fantastically on ps5 though. Just gonna wait for Steam version now.

Also the biggest part of the Days Gone news is Jim Ryan saying they have a slate of Sony exclusives coming to PC. Hopefully most of the big hits come out, cause Sony has made some amazing games these last few years and more people need to play them.

They definitely sell them but yeah I think this would be a first forgiving them out in monthlies.

Mostly I just wonder that because the picture they used I’m the blog post is Control standard edition, which they only sell EGS keys for on their store, rather than Ultimate where they sell Steam keys.

I'd bet money their social media person grabbed the first google image for "Control Game". Hmm actually they are still selling the base game on EGS so maybe

I fully expected to dislike Days Gone and was laughing at the incredibly bad cover art when I received my copy but I ended up liking it, a lot in places. Riding the bike feels really good and the zombies go from being a huge threat in single numbers to being something you kill by tens and eventually hundreds. The hordes were something unique that ranged from annoying to really cool, and the bigger ones were basically half puzzle/half open dungeon kind of thing. There is a finite number of them IIRC. I liked the story with some reservations but like some people pointed out, it's seems to have been heavily reworked over the course of development and probably went from being interactive story to linear narrative. Still, worth playing if you like open world games that are not the same old Ubisoft reheated TV dinners.

I had this wishlisted, a buddy of mine said that it looked like a hades ripoff but I didn't really get that impression at all. Still probably going to sit on it for now because I have backlog for days but good to hear that it stands on its own.

It's really good, but beware that some controllers are not currently working with the game, i.e. PS5 controller.

The controller sensitivity in Persona 5 Strikers feels completely borked in its default state and I often have my character slowly walk forward even after recalibrating my controller and checking it in other games.

"Must play" is subjective, but for good (still) exclusives besides the aforementioned Bloodborne, Spider-Man, God of War there's:

Naughty Dog stuff:
- Uncharted
- The Last of Us

Team Ico stuff:
- Shadow of the Colossus
- The Last Guardian

Ratchet & Clank (only one on PS4, but a ton on PS2/3)
Ghost of Tsushima
Gravity Rush (1/2)
Concrete Genie
Alienation
Tearaway Unfolded

The Infamous games are decent, too

Also, good PS exclusives not published by Sony:

FF VII Remake

Vanillaware stuff:
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim
Dragon's Crown
Odin Sphere

Same, I loved that game. I also really liked the first one, but it's a bit janky and there are less options for moving around fast. Would love to play both on PC again.

Steam page for Days Gone. Is it releasing a few months from now or two years ago? Who can say. I guess that's the PS4 release date maybe?

Pretty forgiving requirements.

Pretty sure all three of those games have been free on some crusty old corner of Bnet for ages, but hey, Blizzard has to find some way to make money without actually making anything new.
The old free Battle.net version of Rock n Roll Racing is a "lite" demo that cuts the game down to just three tracks with all the audio muted and overdubbed with a generic chiptune like a DMCA-fearing Twitch streamer. The other two games were the MS-DOS versions, which are probably okay but they certainly weren't the lead platform back in the day.
