I’m sure this has been asked before but are the Ghost Recon games any good in single player?

Wildlands was a blast due to the amount of freedom it offered you. It gets rather repetitive the longer it goes on and the DLC is pointless. That aside if you can get it on a deep sale, then I'd say jump on it.

Wildlands was great. Breakpoint has also come a long way after all the updates and is worth a look.

Extended play sale starts today.

 

https://blog.playsta...ystation-store/

I see the list of sales and at the top is:

 

  • 1 Blue Orb
  • 100,000 Red Orbs
  • 2 Blue Orbs
  • 5 Blue Orbs

and my first thought was those are some weird names for games.

I hate it when DLC titles don't provide context to which game they're for.

Does anyone have an opinion on the ps5 upgrade for tony hawk? Do upgrades ever go on sale?

I'd be surprised if upgrades went on sale.  I was looking at Life is Strange: Before the Storm and it has some "upgrades" which are full price while the base game or other versions of the game are on sale.

 

I picked up Tony Hawk on PS4 just yesterday via GameFly for $19.99 + shipping + 10% off code.  Felt that and the $10 PS5 upgrade was worth the price of admission.  I mean it's possible that it eventually becomes free, but I don't see that happening any time soon.

If you have a TV that can do 120 Hz, the 1080p/120 hz mode is super smooth. I mean like crazy smooth. It looks and plays beautifully on my LG CX.

Unrelated but has anyone recently had their PSN account locked? I haven't turned on my PS4 for a while nor logged into the PS store since last month to claim PS Plus games but I tried to log in just now and it said my account was locked. 

 

I don't have any emails or anything regarding my account being accessed or anything.

You should play 1 Blue Orb before 5 Blue Orbs, but 2 Blue Orbs is skippable IMO.

My good buddy’s friend had that happen. Took many tries to get it unlocked. It’s a tough process.

Happened to me last week. Then I forgot the new password and I've been waiting two days for a password reset email from Sony. I remembered the new password since, thankfully. Not sure what would have caused it outside of someone trying to brute force their way into my account. Like you, no email from Sony. Just a notice when I tried to log in to the PS App.

Yeah, mine just kept sending me password reset emails as soon as I tried to log in- I guess I gotta change my password. Sucks, it was a good password too, that I actually remembered.

I recommend using a password management software that lets you keep your password database offline (not on their servers) and turning on two-factor authentication.

I was planning to pick up a second DualSense when they announced a black version, but that red one is too sweet looking to pass up. Preordered!

Be ready to cry!  If my story below doesn't make you cry (it won't), Before the Storm will.

This isn't helpful, and it was back in like 2012... ancient history for some of you young bucks...  But this was the dark ages of PSN, and due to a Gawker Media breach, and due to me using the same PW for everything, my account was hacked.  Sony were absolute assholes, blaming me, implying I was lying, implying I was the criminal.  Complete fucking jerks.  Sony USA obviously.  So, I reported them to the Better Business Bureau, which is kind of a sham organization, but that got results.  I got a call personally from some higher-up.  But still, he implied I was at fault, did not accept liability, just wanted to end my attack, and he offered to take the $20 I still had on my account and call it even.  Huh?  Call it fucking even by taking MY money?

 

I've been an incredible customer over the years since I got my account back.  And who can I even complain to about it now?  Nobody.  But what a bunch of fucking asshats.  I suppose none of those people are even there anymore.  I hope not.

I’m in the market for the Nioh 2 Season Pass and it’s in the Extended Play Sale but not discounted. Weird.

It does look sweet. I'm a little disappointed they aren't leading with a blue, though. It seems like blue is the accent color for the console (no surprise), so I thought that was a pretty natural match for first color release.

Don’t be surprised if Sony introduces black plates to match. If they don’t it’s like they are throwing away money lol

Mine wasn't locked, but about a month ago, it outright went to password reset when I tried to login.  No notice like everyone else mentioned, but I figured it was just because the password was too old or something.  Like the places I've worked, they constantly have you change password every 3 months so I thought it was something similar to that.

Hm... maybe that's it for me too. I've had this same password since I had to change it after their major hack back in 2011 or whatever.

Finally beat Returnal, though will work towards more maybe a bit later. Took me a bit over 2 days total, so that likely says my skill at the game. It still feels like a flawed 7 to 7.5/10. There are run stopping bugs for sure, and one took me last night before I went to bed where an enemy spawned into a wall and I couldn't finish the challenge room. Decent game for sure with an alright story, good graphics, good controls if fiddly at times, and a somewhat repetitive cycle especially if you die all the time like I did. Many people are way better at this game than me, but I represent people who maybe shouldn't play bullet hell games in 3D. I'm usually solid at 2D ones like Enter the Gungeon. I still put it as a game mainly for action shooter fans. A good game, though not the killer app for the PS5 by far. Too many bugs still too.

 

On another note I always wash my hands before playing and my controller handles on the back have paint rubbing off of them. This is a flaw for sure, as I haven't played my PS5 much other than this recent Returnal run and Spider-Man remastered and Miles Morales. I noticed dirt on my hands and was confused, as I am pretty clean when playing, but it was just paint residue. Both sides are getting worn out fast though and the random grey is coming out. Hopefully this isn't happening to others. My fingers are naturally a bit oily, as my keyboards letters and such do wear out even if I always wash my hands, but this is happening way too soon. That usually happens months after using it daily. I have a picture if anyone is interested.

The right trigger on my Dual sense already gotten lose, and I only played 1 hours of Devil May Cry, 20 hours of Watch Dog.  Also played Yakuza but that doesn't use the trigger much.
