My PS4 fell over while I was installing my disc copy of God of War.  I've noticed that games with large install sizes make my PS4 do these loud grinding sounds, and I think that the motion of the disc inside just caused it to topple over. 

 

Now, God of War gets about 50% installed before it stops installing.  Hope the disc drive wasn't affected, but I don't have a lot of confidence that it wasn't.  I'm trying out Horizon Zero Dawn Complete which was already installed to see if it will work, but I think it's gonna be all digital from here on out.  This is my second PS4, and after the holidays, I don't have the cash to buy another one at the moment.  :oops:

Anyone know if this Sekiro Pre-Order Theme was a code that was emailed after you pre-ordered the game, or if it was just a download only item?

With any luck the disc was scratched, the drive not damaged. I received a GameFly game once - GoW III ironically - and whatever use damage it had wasn't visible but caused it to behave similarly to what you're describing.

Yeah, the disc is scratched in a few places, but Horizon Zero Dawn booted up right away, so I think the drive is OK as far as I can tell.

 

I bought the game new for $10 at GameStop on Black Friday, so it's still within the 30 day exchange period.  I'm sure people on here will debate with me about whether or not it's ethical to exchange it since it was damaged while in my possession (blah-blah-blah), but I've worked retail before, so I know that they'll just put it in a defective pile and give me a fresh disc.  And I don't have the energy to deal with GameStop employee sales pitches tonight, so I'll take it back after work tomorrow.

 

I also noticed that CD Keys is selling the digital copy for $7.19 right now, but I really don't want to eat up 50+ gb of my Internet to install the game.  But it looks pretty sweet, so I still want to play it.

Why would you have your PS4 standing vertically? They aren’t really designed for that.

Not a lot of space in my place.  And frankly, it was never a problem before.

I see that Dragon Quest Builders 2 is $25 at Wal-Mart.  What are the odds that it goes below that before the end of 2020?  I wouldn't play it right away, but I don't think I'd put it off too long, either.

My Holiday Hitman 2 stream is now live (link). I'll be taking on the 12 specially-made contracts by the top creators in the Hitman community that are based on holiday movies and such.

The archive for this Holiday Hitman 2 stream is live:

 

 

There's some cool community holiday contracts that are featured in the contracts section. One is set in the Mumbai map tasking you with recreating Die Hard in the partially-constructed tower to take down the big bad guy in that building and some of his henchmen along with the way.

I think it's already been on sale for under 25 at one point or another at target probably during black fridays stuff.  But I could be wrong.  I think it will probably drop to at least 20 at some point but how long of a wait that is you never know.  And then you run the risk of it going out of print.  I don't know if it is possible but you might be able to order it through rakuten since they have the walmart listing on their website.

I’m around five hours into it, and really enjoying it. Great world-building/lore/writing, along with the level design of how different parts of the world connect with one another. I would have never known about it if not for CAG, so one more reason the CAG community gets a big thumbs up from me.

And every day that Beat Saber doesn't go on sale, I'm ecstatic since I paid full price.

Goddamn, some of you really don't know what the Fuck you are talking about.

 

It's not unusual for someone who is depressed to bring it up and seek words of encouragement from others (though there's often a voice inside their head that tells them any kind words are bullshit and everyone really hates them). It's also not unusual for a depressed person to see their own comfort seeking as shameful and to hate themselves for doing it. It's not unusual for depressed people to feel some momentary happiness here and there. Depressed people often are not 100% constantly depressed all of the time (shocking, right?). It's not unusual for depressed people to tell others they'll be fine when they are reached out to. It's not unusual for depressed people to have a hard time getting motivated to do something about it, or do just about anything for that matter.

 

Mr. Lonely, I hope things get better for you. Don't listen to some of these assholes. They don't know shit about shit.

 

For anyone reading this that struggles with depression but can't get motivated to see a doctor, one small step you can take is to try something like this: https://smile.amazon...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

If the cause is a chemical imbalance, this can potentially help. YMMV on that though, of course. I'm no doctor. I definitely can't guarantee this will make you feel better. There's a few bad reviews where it doesn't work for people and gives them bad stomach aches. BUT, it's really helped me a lot and has made a huge difference in how I feel.

 

 

Edit: At one point in the past I was trying a smaller 100mg dosage of 5-HTP and didn't really feel any difference, so I actually gave up on it for a time. But the higher 200mg dose has worked wonders.

 

Oh, and one important thing to note: DO NOT take this if you are already taking depression medication. Too much serotonin is just as bad as not enough, and you can get serotonin syndrome. If you can motivate to see a doctor, that is always the best route, but if that proves difficult, trying some 5-HTP is way better than killing yourself.

To everyone else, I'm really sorry that some momentary talk about depression has interrupted your game deals.

If anyone cares, I was able to swap out the God of War disc at GameStop last night with no problem.  The guy didn't even try to sell me anything that I didn't need.  It's an after Christmas miracle!  My PS4 will remain flat for the foreseeable future.  Lesson learned.

 

I'm sitting here with some of the best games on PS4 unplayed - Dark Souls Remastered, God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn Complete, Soulcalibur VI, and vanilla Spider-Man.  And I'm going to try them all this weekend since bills are due.

 

That said, I bought Abzu, Need for Speed: Payback along with the all cars DLC, and Zombie Army Trilogy on the current sale. 

 

That's it for 2019.

I've been really depressed lately. Haven't bought anything from the holiday sale yet, nor even felt like playing anything. Still hoping for a last-minute discount code, like the pathetic worthless loser I am. Going through Frisky's lists, I put together my own list of titles that interested me (regardless of price, mood or otherwise). If I'm being really honest with myself, there are 86 titles in this sale that I would buy if time permitted and money were no object. Of those, maybe 20 are on my actual wishlist. If I whittle it down even further, there are probably only 5 I would play right now. Looking at the rest of my unadulterated wishlist, there are plenty of others I would choose over all of those which have never been on sale before (thus holding out for the discount code that will never be). And when I contemplate all of these options for hours and hours and hours on end, I just think to myself, what is the point of any of it? In actuality, I don't even want to be here anymore.

I still have your old VR list, but do you have any updated VR recommendations based on what is currently on sale that wasn’t on your old list? thanks!

Also, I can post your list if need be

Replacing the 1080p TV I've been using for 10 years with a 50" TCL 4K TV, so I'm excited to see how my games look on that compared to before. At least I won't have to deal with a TV that's a pain to turn on and loses audio for a couple days every once in a while.
