    Yeah, I've read that they're good. Apparently they were going to do three but had to scale it back to two. For some reason the game boy colour passed me by. I went straight from game boy to SP, and somehow slept on all the cool game boy colour games.

    Decided to give this GBA multi-cart a go. It all seems to play OK so far, and it looks like there is working save states for each game. It did bug out one time, but thats to be expected i suppose.

    I've tried Castlevania, Metroid, Super Mario Bros, Sonic and they're playing fine. One surprise was Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers, it looks like a tidy little platformer, i'm gonna enjoy that one.

    I remember enjoying nes Chip n Dale being a favorite as a kid.
    I bought “Zombie Army Trilogy” on the PlayStation store for $5 last weekend. A sniper game from the late ps3/early ps4 era. It’s a decent alternate history ww2 “what if the Nazis turned themselves into a zombie horde” game. Definitely serviceable for $5!

    In a twist of events, I started playing Rocket and Clank (great game, highly recommended) and finished Demon Souls (great game, highly recommended, not at all as hard as it looks, but does require allowing the game to teach you how to play it) while finding myself bored as hell with Morales.
    To be fair, the first Spired Man was a game I loved hating to play, like the Far Cry series. During the 30 minutes I gave to Morales, I didn't found my love to hate, just uninterested. Especially while learning to play Demon Souls... Spider tricks feels like such a sloppy mess of a fight mechanism. Still looks incredible and flying around NYC is kinda entertaining, I will finish it eventually.
    I'll take a break from gaming now and then probably go back to Bloodborne and light Chivalry 2. I think Demon Souls got me ready for it. Anyone playing Chivalry, let me know! Lets team up!

    If anyone has other ps5 recommendations, I am all ears.
    Anyone tried Village? Deathloop? Returnal?

    I stopped at GameStop today and I’ll Be honest none of the current ps5 games looked at all interesting to me. Once I’m done sniping nazi zombies I may purchase the ps5 updated version of doom eternal or the ps5 update to sinking city.

    Doom eternal looks awesome on the ps5!
    And if you like doom, give a chance to Chivalry2. It’s doom but online and you’re a knight with an axe. Ok… it’s not doom at all but as bloody and fun as doom.

    I would, but I don’t play online. I’m good enough anymore, and I don’t have the time to devote to a game to get good enough to compete online with others.

    So I just checked the PlayStation store, and a few games on my radar are one sale for Black Friday and I can’t decide: it’s Deathloop for $30, Doom eternal and Outer Wilds are $15 each. I’ve got a week off of work next week so I’m thinking a new game might be in the cards. Anyone have opinions on those 3?

    You played Doom and liked it a lot right? Doom Eternal is way better. Faster smoother much more fun game.
    I’ve not tried the others.

    Why does this headset come with TWO cockrings?

    Started playing Tales of Arise. So far it's a terrific and modern feeling update on the 90s JRPG genre.

    I have been in the turn based camp for years, but the combat in this is pretty fun.

    Started playing Divinity 2 a few weeks ago. Superb game for anyone craving a classic rpg.

    love the tales series. Might try this one when I have a chance

    Dark Souls II. I left this entry until last and personally I’d rate it harder than everything else done by From Software. Bring on Elden Ring!

    Thinking of trying to buy a PS5 tomorrow, and wondering what game to get with it. I'm thinking Ghost of Tsushima, but I'm a rather finicky "gamer".

    I'm someone who easily gets bored by video games. I'm generally much more into Nintendo - Mario games are my jam, especially MarioKart. But on PS4 I've found shooters to be what I've most gotten into - Destiny, SW Battlefront, and CoD BlackOps (I don't really like this - at all - but I find myself playing it for 20-50 minutes on a semi-regular basis before becoming utterly bored and turning it off). I played the free demo of Riders Republic and it was kinda fun, but I think I'd rather play the remastered Tony Hawk 1 & 2.

    I tried Final Fantasy VII (?) and quit very early into the game. I played Persona5 and quit just before beating it. I don't think RPGs are for me. I've enjoyed racing games in the past and could see getting into one of those again. I've never been a big sports game fan, but I like basketball so I could see trying NBA 2KXX. I tend to play a single game for months, rather than hopping around from game to game, so would like something that I can return to without becoming bored. Having content to play after beating the story-mode is a plus, if it's a story-based game.

    I think Ghost of Tsushima is interesting enough. I loved it. Generally get bored with open world game but the universe here really got me. I played all side quest and felt invested in the stories all along. I couldn’t play Persona5 and got bored super quickly with Final Fantasy so I wouldn’t say trying out those means anything about your (dis)taste for RPG.
    Demon Souls is also really worth it, but much harder to learn.
    I think Ratchet and Clank is a must with the PS5. It’s short and sweet but so much fun and it looks so good. It’s going to look and feel much more like a Nintendo game too.
    I find Spider-Man frustrating to play but get back to it because it looks great and it feels amazing to swing around Manhattan. The combat is what is frustrating to me. I don’t get it (yet manage to finish the games) The story is nice too.
    Oh and please do get Borderlands 3 and if you’re ready for a higher level of challenge Doom eternal if you like shooter. They both looks great on the PS5.
    Tony Hawk remastered are a must if you use to loved the games way back when. Super fun to go back to it on the new console.
    I don’t play sports game nor racing games (outside of Mario kart) so I can’t comment on those.
    Enjoy your new console!

    The Ratchet & Clank series in general is great. It’s been around since PS2, which sadly has been the only PlayStation console I’ve ever owned… but I enjoyed the hell out of the PS2 games. I think they released HD remasters of the original 3 games on PS3 at some point.

    If you managed to get a ps5, do yourself a favor and get the Last of us remastered and then the last of us part two. Or you could wait, naughty dog is supposedly remaking the first part with the updated engine of part two for the ps5. They are hands down two of the greatest games ever.
    Both Spider-Man games are really great as well. If you’ve ever fantasized about swinging through nyc as Spidey, do yourself a favor and play. And if you buy the deluxe pack of miles morales spider-man you get the first game updated for ps5 for free.
    Borderlands 3 I was less enamored with than 2. But it’s solid.
    I just bought Deathloop yesterday. I’m about 20 minutes into it and it seems interesting so far. The gun combat isn’t quite as tight as I’d like it, but I think I’ll enjoy it.

    I didn't end up getting a PS5. I was late getting into the invite site. But definitely thanks for the recs - they'll come in handy once I get more serious about getting one.
    I just got a new TV and was having trouble getting sound from the TV to my AVR, and thought it would be easier to just get a PS5 to replace the PS4 so I could have 4K + stereo. But last night I finally got the audio issue figured out so the PS5 is less of a priority now.

    Just an FYI, when you do get a hold of a PS5 there are 20 PS4 games that are free for immediate download if you sign up for PS+. Great way to get some games in without spending any additional cash for a minute.
    • Batman: Arkham Knight
    • Battlefield 1
    • Bloodborne
    • Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
    • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
    • Days Gone
    • Detroit: Become Human
    • Fallout 4
    • Final Fantasy 15
    • God of War 4
    • Infamous: Second Son
    • Monster Hunter World
    • Mortal Kombat X
    • Persona 5
    • Ratchet & Clank
    • Resident Evil 7
    • The Last Guardian
    • The Last of Us Remastered
    • Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
    • Until Dawn
    Also, I would 100% play Borderlands 2 before Borderlands 3. It's a better game in just about all aspects, imo. Plus you can get it and all DLC super cheap.

    I also thought Ghosts of Tsushima was incredible.

    Can't wait for Elden Ring too!

    when you sign up for ps+ do you get those games free for good, or just until the month is up, or as long as you renew your subscription?


    ***edit. I just googled it. The free games are available as long as your subscription to ps+ is valid/paid. It’s not a bad deal; but not for me. I’m weird about owning media. I’d rather pay outright and own something, rather than leasing a license to use said item.

    Generally I agree with you, but if you want to play online you have to buy a PS+ subscription. That's the biggest reason for the sub, IMO. That being said if you're never hopping online it's a much harder choice.

    yeah I haven’t played online since ps3. I got my ass handled to me about half a dozen times in ultimate marvel vs capcom 3. All different players using the same group of fighters, all using the same broken combos and attacks. I realized right there that 1. My reaction time is not what it once was 2. I don’t have the time or inclination to get good enough to challenge actual gamers, so I logged off and never went back. And when Sony started charging for ps+ it made the decision that much easier.
