I played through Even The Ocean, by the same people who made Anodyne 1/2. I really think these two are making games just for me it seems like. The gameplay is really fun without being maybe world changing but the world building/story are so intimate and cool and their interest in like secrets and boundary breaking are so fucking good. I can't wait till Anodyne 2 comes out on the Switch to really dig into it.

also demon's souls still looks like such a mixed bag stylistically. i hate that bluepoint the saw the weird living mannequin thing the gargoyles had going and decided an upgrade meant turning them into generic stone gargoyles. there's some decent stuff in that trailer but that example is emblematic of what i find offputting in the remake

I dont want to be that guy but we go through this cycle literally every console generation

if I had to rank reasons to own a console "performance" would easily be on the bottom

still some of the newer ps4 games are very impressive visually for console games so I'm somewhat optimistic about launch ps5 games, graphically speaking anyway

its up on amzn. for some reason you can't find it through searching but a bunch of people have found ways around it to add it to their carts. take out the one you don't want from your cart, I got this one on twitter and someone added a referral tag to the link but whatever. https://www.amazon.com/gp/item-dispatch ... isFunko-20

edit: I guess the digital one sold out.

i managed to get an amazon pre-order for the digital edition just for hell of it because they dont pre-charge (probably won't be able to afford one of these dumb things a month and a half from now anyways!!)

but I also got an email via Sony that I got selected in their lottery to pre-order one through them...if theres a way to pass this off to anyone here I'd be happy to oblige

I pre-ordered a PS5 digital edition because I'm dumb.

prices here are $660 USD for the PS5 and $540 USD for the PS5 DE, which is insane.

demon's souls looks great, I hope there are no loading times.

I tried for like 2 hours to get one from Best Buy last night and could never complete it, and then it just suddenly updated to "sold out." Seems like that was the experience for many people. Hope I'll be able to get one of these this year.

so I only saw part of that announcement. what wa the deal with the psplus thing? something to do with only being able to play ps4 games with that? i don't mind cause i have ps plus but i DON'T love a situation where they're only available as some kinda online subscription thing, as opposed to being able to use physical or at least digital downloads.

basically i just need to at least be able to play bloodborne, sekiro,dks3, mgsv and phantom pain. but it seems like this ISN'T gonna make my ps4 obsolete necessarily?

The PS+ thing is that they're going to have a library of free PS4 games included as part of your PS+ subscription.

But you'll also be able to play any games you've bought through PSN or any discs you have too.

The PS+ library just seems like a bonus.
