I was playing NES and Gameboy in the late 80’s as a very young child, but I’ve owned every Sony gaming platform ever made. My PSone broke so I never really played that one, and I owned a PS2 three different times, since I was a teenager back then I would sell it whenever I needed money. It was mainly just used for EA Sports hockey. I didn’t know much about video games back then but I loved that hockey game. In Alabama we used to play hockey on the tennis court of the apartment complex I lived in. We’d take down the net and play with rollerblades and a Pizza Hut street hockey ball lol. Maybe that had something to do with it.

PS3 I sold a month after buying it, because I was hard-core into partying back then and needed money, but I bought one again later. Had a PSP that was hacked. Bought a Vita and PS4 day one. PSVR day one. Now a PS5.

So while I don’t feel as attached to their history because I haven’t spent that much time on their systems by relative comparison, It was still a nice trip down memory lane in Astro’s Playroom. The first thing I said to myself when playing the game was that they seemed to finally be taking a page out of Nintendo‘s playbook and leveraging their brand identity. I did enjoy seeing the little Astro bots in Monster Hunter gear, and I’ve had a pretty fun time guessing what franchise each of the characters dressed up are representing.

@JaxonH I've seen a few clips. I think there's an area with cardboard boxes referencing Metal Gear, and there's also a point where you can put on the little transport backpack cargo thing Sam Bridges wears in Death Stranding as well

I also saw a photo of a PS1 console with its underside bearing a model number named KUTAR4GI referencing Ken Kutaragi

So of all the oddities with the PS5, be it downloading PS4 versions on the sly, cards being messy, the odd crash...

The weirdest thing for me so far is simply charging the controller.

Got a solid 7 hours out of it. Go to charge it. Controller plugged into the front USB port. All good.

Says it's charging, can keep playing, that's great. Put it in rest mode for a day, come back later after work (about 12 hours), lights on the controller are off, unplug it...no battery.

Put the cable back in, says it's charging, controller is fully usable.

So I put it into Rest Mode and watch the controller start to charge and then...stop. It just stopped.

So I plug the cable into one of the back USB ports, go into Rest Mode and...the controller is charging lights and all.

So from my guesses, it looks like for some reason the front USB port doesn't supply enough power.

Played some Demons Souls with my brother coaching me. He’s the biggest Souls fan I’ve ever met (think he’s beaten all 3 Dark Souls games twice over, Demons Souls, Nioh 1 and 2, Sekiro, The Surge 2, Bloodborne, etc). He loves Souls like I love Monster Hunter. He knows every secret by memory so he helped guide me to get this ring right away that got me 75% health when hollowed instead of the standard 50% health. And he beat the first boss for me because I wasn’t mentally prepared. I remember beating a few bosses in dark souls three and spent an hour losing my mind (although I did eventually beat them despite thinking it was impossible at first). I wanted to take the opportunity to watch and observe.

I really liked it. But I don’t think I’ll be playing it on my own. Since you can now set a password and limit who joins you, I can actually co-op with him in the game. May jump back into Dark Souls on Switch though. For some reason these games seem less intimidating to me on a handheld (same for Alien Isolation- that game creeped me out, but playing on handheld I was fine).

I know that pain... I tried powering my SNES mini via a USB port on my Wii U last night. It lights up... then just goes off again.

Cyberpunk footage on PS4Pro and PS5.

Lol base PS4 and Xbox One aren't gonna be viewable until launch I guess. They're probably still around 20fps, ans desperately trying to get to 30 for launch.

@Dezzy looks great! But yeah imagining this running on the OG eraser and VCR from 2013 is painful to even think about lol! Really hope the next gen patch doesn't take too too long but those folks need a break more importantly

Here’s a question, would anybody recommend persona 5 royal? I want to get it, but don’t know if it would be good or not, and if somebody can recommend it, does the age rating for m go really well with the game or not make sense.

Slinkoy1

@Slinkoy1 that's...actually quite difficult to say. It really comes down to what you are looking for. I'd personally recommend it, but I do know some people( who otherwise love Persona and MegaTen) that dislike Persona 5. I think you need to do some research yourself, watch some gameplay videos, trailers, whatnot, so you can form your own opinions without the diehard fanboys or the angry critics trying to convert you. But definite rule of thumb is get royal and don't worry about the og at all.

Now about the M rating. There's no explicit sexual content, except for maybe some of the designs of demons, Mara and Lucifer come to mind. And it does take place in a high school, to say anything, but...there's, erm...suggestions, to put it lightly. Violence is pretty tame for an M-rated game. Some pools of blood, splatters, and if course, for Joker's neutral special, he wields a gun. I may be forgetting something, but thats all there is. There are heavy topics it touches on, abuse, suicide, depression, things like that, the whole game is basically about infiltrating peoples minds and helping them with internal struggles( there's more than that, but it's a main point in the gameplay and story). Overall, I think if a person has taken health class and takes it seriously, they will be fine, if that is what you are worried about.

TL:DR I'd definitely recommend it, but do your own research, and the game is bordering on the edge of M, a 14 year old would be fine, but maybe not a 10 year old or something.

Hope this helps.

@Slinkoy1
I will say No.
Age rating DOES matter.
I would suggest you to play the games until rated Teen for your brain safety. Think about what contents you want to see and recorded permanently inside your brain (core memory)

My suggestions of Everyone 10+ / Teen PS4 games :
1. Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2 (Teen, PEGI 12)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 1 & 2 (Everyone 10+ , PEGI 7)
3. Portal Knights (Everyone 10+, PEGI 7)
4. Evoland: Legendary Edition (Everyone 10+, PEGI 12)
5. The Sims 4 (Teen, PEGI 12)

Don't force yourself to play gritty games or you will regret for remembering the gritty things inside your brain that will stay forever.

The things i LOVE :
1. Dance Dance Revolution
2. Eurobeat songs
3. Japan
4. Six pack dudes
5. Cute Chibi looking
6. Boxing & Kickboxing
7. Girly games
8. Life simulation games
9. White & Blue colors
10. Anthro animals

@Slinkoy1 Persona 5 Royal is fantastic if you enjoy turn-based JRPGs. It's one of the most stylish games ever made, and the mix of dungeon-crawling and life-sim stuff is truly addicting. There's a reason it scored so highly critically, and has sold millions of copies commercially.

As to the rating... the game deals with a lot of adult themes, as it's primarily about a group of teenagers who fight back against adults in positions of entrenched authority who abuse their power. There's (implied; never actually shown) sexual assault and abuse of high school students, criminality, government corruption, attempted suicide, etc. If you've ever watched a news story in the last few years, then you've probably heard worse. There's some blood, but the violence is EXTREMELY stylized and not at all brutal or realistic. There's some profanity, I guess, but nothing obnoxious.

These games usually get saddled with M ratings because a particular Persona named Mara is portrayed as a penis in a chariot. In this particular game, the first dungeon deals with an adult teacher objectifying his female students, so there's sexualized imagery to match the theme. It does something very similar to the classic Silent Hill 2, in that regard.

These are some of the few M-rated games I'd almost wholeheartedly recommend to everyone who is a young teenager or older, as they deal with children coming-of-age, learning moral responsibility, confronting their own demons and (particularly in P5) the structural flaws of the world they inhabit.

@Slinkoy1 Very much. Too much! It gives you a ton of value for your money, since Royal will easily take ninety hours to finish. The story is really meaty and the characters are really well written. Combat's challenging, but vastly rewarding too, and the whole game is stylish to a tee. I think like Horizon Zero Dawn it's rated a bit higher than it should. I'm English and have the PAL copy, and it's rated 16. A bit of swearing, some lewd jokes here and there, but it's nothing that'll scar you for life.

Don't be afraid to strike up a conversation!

So, thinking about Thanksgiving, I start remembering about Fat Princess, whatever happened to that? I've never played any of them, I just know there was one released early in the ps4s lifespan, and nothing else I can remember from then on. Same could be said about Ape Escape and Killzone, but it doesn't take a detective to figure out what happened to Killzone.

Edit: so there are only two Fat Princess games, for some reason I thought there were more than that. Guess that sort of answers my question.

@GilbertXI I didn't even know there was one for the PS4, but the reviews are mixed, it it somehow looks worse than the PS3 game.
