@AdamJ surely Fifa counts as gaming..  ;) hahaha there's stock if you look in the right places but the prices are crazy. I'm sure they'll drop for Boxing Day sales in the next couple years. I'll take it they'll go into funds for a new UHF or something then  :D :D

The details in Spiderman looks insane and real like. I can imagine being so immerse in it just walking about. which makes me wonder what the next-gen GTA or RDR would look like if they included those options with the graphics. I've somewhat decided that I'll get a pro this time so I'll be patient and wait a few more year for one.


@Seul hopefully more available units by then as well..

@thebeardoweirdo sorry man, I kind of post here infrequently. Didn't see this until now. I love pinball. I am kind of addicted to Pinball FX and the Captain America table.

@louisbosco I managed to get a Series X and I love it. Fortunately mine doesn't have any QC issues. I tried to get a photo of the cool green effect on the top of the box...

I am holding off on PS5 for now. There are several things about the console design that worry me. Plus I kind of hate how it looks... Plus they are pretty much impossible to find. I had one in my cart and decided to hold off for the mid-cycle refresh PS5PRO. Plus there are zero games I am interested in for it currently.

@Filthy me too. I've been buying the normal playstation for years, I thought I'd actually wait and get a pro version this year. I'm not sure how long this patience will last. recently been thinking of buying a ps5 and selling it when the pro eventually comes out, but there's no games currently to tempt me except maybe Spiderman: Miles Morales.

even though I'm not an xbox person, I'll have to admit that I really like the shape of the xbox series X. but I know I'll never get one because I really hate their controllers.

@louisbosco

I actually prefer xbox controllers, and this one is extra nice. I really like the clicky D-pad and the RB and LB placement is perfect so you barely have to move your index finger to press it.

With the PS5 those frequencies they have the memory and GPU clocked to are unusually high. So it seems like it is is bound to run hot. Also the use of liquid metal on the CPU is slightly concerning because it contains gallium, and that dissolves both copper and aluminum. So over time the gallium become aerosolized by the fan and will leave traces of the gallium on the other components. And they are literally using a sponge to keep the liquid metal contained. They have plated the some of the aluminum components with nickel to help mitigate corrosion, I guess.

It would be fine for about 5 years or so. But after that I expect that there will be traces of dissolved copper throughout the internals. I have a gaming laptop that was overclocked and used LM and the entire laptop is full of dissolved copper. It is 8 years old.

There is also memory slotted on the back side of the motherboard that does not have a heat sink in contact with it and it gets to be close to 100 degrees Celsius which is also concerning.

The games I have seen look fantastic though. But Demon Souls isn't really my thing. I played the original and didn't care for it. I am hopeful that maybe they will have a revised console in a few years.

@Filthy

I get really annoyed with the placement of the analog sticks for the xbox, since I use them the most. the two side by side on the playstation suits me better. I can't say I've played much platform exclusive game to pick one over the other, except for the recent god of war so there's not much in it there for or against either platform.

I guess I haven't really looked in the materials used for the new playstation. those don't really bother me that much. can't say I've had much issues with consoles since the ps2 I had. the new size of the ps5 controller will be interesting for me though, given how they've changed the shape. other than that, I only hope they don't make the ps5 pro (or whatever it will be called) bigger than it already is.

@Filthy

Nice dude!  Those are some solid virtual games. Do you get out and play at any arcades at all?

They have a couple pins at the bar I used to go to. But 2020 happened and I don't go anywhere. I would love to be able to play the new Stern Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pin. It looks incredible.

I am super addicted to the game Zombie Army 4 Dead War. I made to level 83 on PC and am level 108 now on xbox. I have actually been playing constantly since I got covid and I have been playing it a lot with a friend online. She is now hooked on it too. The game is like Resident Evil 4 on crystal meth. There's tons more action and frenetic shooting. But the core gameplay feels a lot like the shooting in RE4. You can wound enemy limbs and do a lot of melee attacks like RE4. But everything feels more smooth and modern. RE4 is arguably my favorite game ever, so this is high praise. Except ZA4 is a lot more enjoyable to play over and over again.

You can get super high combo scores, level your weapons, level perks, level your character, and even shoot zombies in the testicles... in slow motion! There's tons of blood and gore, and this is like the most punk rock game I have ever seen. The game looks like an 80s/90s D-Beat album cover, mated with an 80s zombie movie, mated with a Lucio Fulci gore movie.  :D



My video is age restricted so hopefully you can click the link and see it :(

I cashed in a rebate and got one of these today for free. It's not a denim controller but I like the blue.

The new controller is very aesthetically pleasing 😍

I took this picture of this cool base in the mountains from the game in the trailer above.

That's cool you are enjoying it @Cole I am waiting until they patch it for the new consoles. So I probably wont be able to play until this fall. I did play through the intro part and I encountered a few visual bugs and the game crashed once. So I am okay with waiting a while longer.

For everyone who doesn't have a PS5. There's no spoilers or anything.
