He work on the game or something? Why is he promoting it? Watched the trailer and still don't know what the heck it's about. I was slightly interested be a use I like rhythm games. Looks more like that isometric Lara Croft game or Hitman Go.

This is ridiculous. Sony should offer at least 3 years warranty on ps5 controllers. They're not cheap and most likely will have analog drift. I sold my original on ebay for $30 (put drift in the description) and got a black one and now that one just started acting up.

Trade into Gamestop, they rarely catch it.  

 

As far as the joycon drifts, I have had a few and I took them apart cleaned them up and got 4 out of the 6 to function properly.

Vice City holds up, I beat it last month but just did the main missions.  I plan on at least trying Metro Exodus.

Streaming Hitman's new Freelancer mode if you want to see it in action.

 

Edit: Here's the archive. The Freelancer mode does a very good job of shaking things up with all of the maps in the trilogy, minus the three intro maps. You start in your bunker lair with some big walls full of spots for weapons that you will hopefully fill up with weapons you acquire in missions, but all you have to start is a basic pistol and a stethoscope in another room as garrot wire. Maps will have chests to give you options of new items to collect or use, plus any weapon that you can find in the maps themselves. As you level up, more parts of your hideout open up to offer new things you can do between missions or allow some customization.

 

You're picking mini-campaigns against various syndicates that get progressively longer as you do well, starting with three maps up to six maps for the final leg of the run that require you to pick maps you can handle. If you die in a mission, you lose the items you had on you, but you can continue on unless it's an alerted map that has higher stakes and will end a run if you're not careful. The final map against a syndicate is pretty cool since you have a few potential targets that you have to use the clues you're given to figure out who the leader is that you have to kill. It's sort of like an elusive target.

I turned off vibration and trigger effects for Fifa for that exact reason. My back buttons on my modded extreme rate are bound to L2/R2 for Fifa- this makes jockey and sprint easier, as well as much easier skill cancels.

 

I didn't do the mod for it with extreme rate, but you can also do hair triggers to make sprinting easier. The Dual Sense Edge will have adjustable triggers that will make sprint/jockey much easier. 

 

My planned remap for Fifa for the DS Edge will be L1/R1 to L2/R2, L2/R2 to the Back Paddles. Will make everything much easier to reach and hold I think.

I worried about it happening but thought I would be missing out on the next gen cool feaures if I nerfed the controller. I think it lasted a good 2 years at least...which was long enough for the dualsense controller to get a discounted sale. The more recent dualsense models have better battery life so I would have needed the upgrade eventually. I am way too cheap to splurge on a Dualsense Edge but it seems nice.  

 

Is it the right trigger or the left trigger spring that's the pain in the butt to change? Whichever one is more obstructed is the one I had to change out, lol. Of course all the videos I found only showed people changing out the easy one!

 

The controller is super easy to open and put back together again, though, and that's coming from someone who rarely does stuff like that.

 

You guys with batteries lasting two hours should just buy a new battery and swap it out. It won't take you more than 10-15 minutes as long as you have a decent pry tool and a phillips head, and that's if you're really bad at this stuff. Get a kit from Amazon for like $10 if you don't have a pry tool or something similar.

The left one is more difficult from what I remember.

I wonder if season 3 and part 3 will come out around the same time.

I kind of want Season 2 to focus on more on the other storylines we have not seen in the game. There's a decent amount of time between Part 1 and Part 2 that they can explore. Part 2 also have a lot of story materials that I think they can actually split them into multiple seasons.

 

Also this week episode is supposed to be one of the best episode of the season by critics that have seen the entire show.

Honestly they should just make this design the cover. It's way more interesting and attractive than any athlete.

Has Frisky posted the 2-hour trial for Marvel Midnight Suns for Premium members?
https://store.playst...MSENHANCED00000

Fantastic. The trials kind of replace Gamefly for games you're on the fence about. It's a bit inconvenient to download 30+GB games that you're only going to play for two hours, though.

I think they should split the perspectives from the game into 2 seasons. 1 for Ellie and 1 for Abby and just like in the game, show the bits where they intercept each other/show same locations but in different times/places

Here we've got a 19yo trying to be passed off as a 14yo.  It's like okay, that's a kind of weirdly aged, adult-looking child. 

 

I'm so tired of Hollywood casting 25 and 28 year-old actors to play teenage high school kids in shows and movies.  It's been going on forever.

Are all the trials only for Premium members?  It’s the first one I was excited to try, but I only have Extra.

Brief thoughts after the first 2 days of use (Fifa, 2k23, MW2) with the Dual Sense Edge. I have not tried adjusting dead zones on the sticks, or messing around with their sensitivity yet.

 

The build quality feels really good. I like the domed sticks much better than the competitors. The sticks in general feel better than the OG DualSense, but that might just be because these are new. I didn't think I would be a fan of the short "paddles" but it actually feels much better than the traditional ones. It's really easy to customize and switch between the custom set ups. Switching between the paddles is also really easy and being able to charge in case is kind of a cool feature. The adjustable triggers is easily it's best feature tho, especially with the type of games I play. 

 

The battery life sucks and you definitely feel it. I am near my console so it isn't that big of a deal, but it is annoying. I'll buy a shorter cable if i don't have one laying around, as dealing with a 10ft long cable when playing on a monitor is actually cumbersome. I also wish they covered the entire handle with the grip, instead of just some... Scuf felt better in this regard (that's the only compliment I'll give them, lol)

 

Overall is it worth it? Out of the box it feels like a premium product. Functions well, etc... Like most things it'll depend on how long it lasts, and how well supported it is by Sony. For me, as of now... I am pretty satisfied with it. Looking forward to seeing if Sony or GuliKit will eventually put the Hall Sensor sticks out for this.

Last chance to play games in the PS Premium not showing a leaving date for me. Is it for anyone else? Does it usually show up at the start of the new month?

 

*EDIT* Okay, certain games have a date. 2/21 so plenty of time for those. I will be playing Metro Exodus first.

I downloaded Vice City, and immediately deleted it after watching the intro... Did we actually enjoy these graphics back in the day?  BARF!  Talking blocks...  Ugh.  

Sparkle Unleashed is actually a bit of fun.  Enjoyed it, and then my son blew me away in it...  Nice little game.
