Yeah. When you sign up the fine print tells you how. You do it on your system / account / subs info.

I started FFXV this week. I loaded up my original save file from when the game first came out and I was only 1.5 hours in. The game really distracts you with side quests like Xenoblade Chronicles, but the game itself is much more polished compared to XC.

There's definitely a lot about the games various systems that the game does not really give you good initial explanations on.

I enjoyed ff Xv. Definitely understand why it's polarizing. Great villain imho.

Been playing The Pathless. It's pretty cool. Like a mini Breath of the Wild meets a mini Shadow of the Colossus since the only enemies are bosses in a world where you need to unlock shrines to purge towers and instead of a horse or glider you get a cool eagle to glide your way around with and helps you solve puzzles.

Wow thats a great reference. Thanks. I always wondered what games were running at on new hardware. Wonder if there's a site like this for Xbox.

Man I would love if the PS5 would use Zoom... I have a laptop but it's old and tired.... Just be nice to see everyone on the big screen instead of a tiny screen.

I know the Xbox has Skype but seems everyone uses zoom.

Sorry for the delay. I can confirm it doesnt work. It seems that the "USB Drive" and the Extended Storage are 2 different things. For USB drive, probably a.normal Fat32 pen drive can work to move your videos. I didnt try this though.

Thanks for the confirmation.

The PC doesn't see anything contents when you connect the "extended storage" formatted drive. It knows the drive is there, but can't read the contents. So I guess its not a big deal that I can't move the contents. But it would be nice to free up the space. As a trophy hunter, I actually like the small clips it makes. Especially for some of the harder trophies.

I can confirm you can transfer them to a regular USB. I use the same one on PC and PS3/4.

I guess thats one way to do it. I just upload them to youtube or send them straight to anyone interested through a PS chat. You can actually share videos through PS messages on the PS5. They wont be visible to anyone on PS4 though. Only PS5 and PS App users. Cool to have though.

I am thinking about putting in an order here at the end of the month... Looks good. They have other stickers in the middle but I think I would stick with the Matte Black.

Not strictly a PS5 game, but I've never been more hyped for a game than j am for NieR Replicant in 3 weeks. Hoping the PS5 keeps it at 60+ FPS the entire way

Anyone played Disco Elysium? I know it's not new, per se, but the Final Cut released today and I read a review that was really talking it up. Sounds really interesting and unique.

I actually saw a review for this earlier today and thought of you and Tad lol. Did you pick it up yet? The reviews aren't great for this one -- I think the review I saw was a 3/10 which is insanely low even by FMV standards -- but I checked out a trailer and I kinda dug it! I may pick it up sometime this week.

I did, and I played through it tonight. Its, not their best work. It felt super rushed in the second half. Felt like they got caught in the pandemic and it completely messed up their plans. Its also not great cut wise, like things hang for way too long on choices. And there are tons of random hard cuts that are super jarring. The story is also, not as good as it could have been (if they could have filmed more). Its the first of their games that I don't want to bother getting the plat, i.e. seeing all the endings. I didn't hate it. But its not their best work.

I've only played 30 minutes, and honestly its the best 30 minutes of any game I've played in recent memory. I'm super excited to play more of this. This game feels like it was made for me specifically. The humor, the writing, the way the story is told. Everything about it so far is great. I'm glad I waited to get the full package on console and didn't break down and buy it on steam. Because in this version they added 100% voice narration. And its amazing so far. The original PC version didn't have any narration from what I've read. And playing that would have not been as good I think. The voice work so far has been on point.

I'm also interested in getting it, though I'll probably wait a little while.

Also if anyone's interested IIRC the PC version is getting upgraded for free to be on or with the PS version.

No combat at all.


Unlike other role-playing games where you might take damage in physical fights, most of what hurts you in Disco Elysium is verbal. There is no traditional combat in the game. Instead, intense encounters take place in an exchange of thoughts, questions, insults, and more. Discussions can hurt your mind and body.Dec 18, 2019

I'll pick it up when it's on sale digitally. Much like Hades, I expect this one to be bought by a lot of people due to good word of mouth.
