    Next Gen Consoles

    Well that's dumb. Are you 100% sure there isn't a brightness setting you can tweak buried in the Series X settings menus somewhere? You can do that for the PS4 or PS5 controllers for example. Worth checking at least (if you haven't already.)

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    I wouldn't stress too much, you'll probably be fine. Absolute worst case, if they delay your order, you could buy it digitally to play it on launch and then sell off the code that the CE comes with.

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Same. Fresh install of Windows, drivers up to date, preorder complete and ready to pre-load. Even dusted out my PC for maximum GPU capability (not that it was particularly dusty to begin with..) Let's go!

    Ghost of Tsushima (PS4 exclusive)

    I picked up Ghost of Tsushima during the Black Friday PS sale... holy shit this game is great. It's gorgeous and silky smooth on PS5... if this was held for release as a PS5 launch title it would fit right in as next-gen without a doubt. It sucked me into its world faster than any game in recent...

    Next Gen PC Technology Checklist?

    DLSS I think is a major gamechanger in keeping performance up while adding features like raytracing. I think it's going to advance and become a standard thing

    Demon's Souls (PS5)

    Thanks for the warning, I'll know what I need to stock up on.. btw, yes that area in Dark Souls 2 was insane. I made it to the boss fight twice and gave up after that. At least I can say I made it that far :D I do appreciate it for being a different sort of challenge in the series though.

    Demon's Souls (PS5)

    Ironically, one thing that is probably hampering the multiplayer systems in Demon's Souls is the scarcity of PS5s. The more people playing the game, the better its systems work (more people summoning, invading, leaving signs, etc.)

    Yeah they were using a spear so I assume that's what it was. Jfc what a troll weapon that is. If you're short on souls to repair your gear, guess you're fucked

    Demon's Souls (PS5)

    Ok, so I'm playing a little more tonight (just killed Tower Knight) and was invaded by someone, so my first PvP in Demon's Souls. They did something that broke my weapon like 10 seconds into the fight and I had no backup so I was boned. Wtf did they do that broke my weapon so fucking fast?? Also...

    CONTROL (Remedy)

    I had really really high hopes for Control after everything I'd read about it shortly after it released... but yeah, the story is really, really lacking. It's much more about atmosphere and vague statements, and I never really felt any emotional impact from the story. When I first started...

    Forza Motorsport(8) thread

    That system is the key to a game focused on motorsports and multiplayer racing. Disable it optionally for single player, sure, but in multiplayer it's basically a requirement if you want a thriving online community in a realistic racing simulator.

    Demon's Souls (PS5)

    I know I've said this already, but the sound design is SO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD. It's not just 3D positional audio or the bitrate etc, but just the design of each element is done with so much care and love. It can be little details like when you break a table that has stuff on it, you'll hear cups...

    Wow, now I'm extremely glad I lucked out with my PS5. No coil whine at all, and I'm extremely sensitive to it. Also my console is literally like 2.5 feet from my left ear, lol.

    Demon's Souls (PS5)

    Question about item scaling in the Souls games... let's say you have two weapons, one that scales B with strength only, and one that scales D skill and E strength. If I have a decent amount of strength and skill, can the D and E weapon equal a pure strength build? In other words, do the multiple...

    I don't have Cold War so I don't know how it works exactly with the haptics, but it seems like you could do some cool stuff with it without getting in the way. For example, you could make the triggers feel like they have trigger stops (like the ones you can use on the Xbox Elite controllers) for...

    Demon's Souls (PS5)

    This game is SO GOOD. Having never played the original (I started with Bloodborne, then played through DS1, DS2, and some of DS3) I feel right at home, other than the lack of jumping. The environments *definitely* feel next gen. It's fun just taking my time looking at all the details. The hours...

    Got my PS5 set up today. Loooving it... Not so much the physical design, but using it is fantastic. The controller is definitely a step up from the Dual Shock 4. I still prefer offset sticks like Xbox controllers though. I saw a lot of comments about the UI being a pain but I think it's solid...

    That's cool. I haven't received mine yet (it's coming tomorrow - not that I'm eagerly awaiting or anything :D ) but I wondered if the white "shells" would be easily removable. If so it would be really easy for someone to make aftermarket ones that make the console sit better horizontally, or...

    Demon's Souls (PS5)

    Yeah, the PvP is the ultimate "learn the meta" game. Nobody gives a fuck about style or fun or whatever, it's just "this weapon/spell/armor combo etc. is best and most likely to cheese and kill a player." And then there's noobs playing through the SP with their own style who just get wrecked...

    The PS5 seems pretty nice but wtf, the physical design of it has to be the worst (from both a form and function point of view) console designs ever.

    That must be the optional player "boss" fight I've read about. I guess there's one in Dark Souls 3, too.

    God of War did get a 60fps PS5 update. I watched some videos of it today, looks amazing. I mean I know as a PC user with a beefy graphics card and 165hz display, 60fps is nothing revolutionary, but seeing these last-gen games perform respectably is such a breath of fresh air.

    If Sony is actually acquiring Bluepoint (who did the Demon's Souls remake,) I think there's a very, very strong possibility that they'll be doing some sort of Bloodborne remaster (or maybe even a sequel.)

    Best bet to snag a PS5 is from Playstation Direct. Watch a live PS5 shopping chat (such as the NowInStock PS5 page) on the hour every hour weekdays between 9am EST and 7pm EST. Watch for 3 or 4 minutes for spam about the queue going up. If it does, open a tab to the PS Direct site as fast as you...
