DiRT 5 Another Update

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 22, 2022 by getbent57

Yet, another post talking about DiRT 5.  At this point have put in about seven hours.  While I like the game am starting to get a bit bored with it all ready.  Have been playing the career mode.  There is lot of variety with the vehicles.  However all the races seem to play out the same.  Have reach a point were the races become to tuff so I had to lower the difficultly.  Going to keep picking at it and only do a few races at a time.  Unlike there other DiRT games don’t feel compelled to keep going.

DiRT 5 Hands On Update

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 15, 2022 by getbent57

Have put some more time into DiRT 5.   From what I have played am liking it very much.  There seems to be lots of variety with the types of vehicles mixed over different race types.  That is were I ran into some trouble.  Some of the races had no problem winning the first time out.  The other not so much.  Think that is because of the vehicle type.  Those are Super Lites and Sprint.  They were all over the track and couldn’t get them under control.  Luckily you don’t have to do those races if you don’t want to.  One race type took me my surprise is, Rock Bouncer.  You drive a rock crawler over a timed track.  Was very fun and looking forward to trying more.  If you are a PlayStation Plus members for January 2022.  It is well worth the download.

Am a big fan of the DiRT series but haven’t gotten my hands on DiRT 5.  Well we got lucky because it is one of the games for PlayStation Plus members for January 2022.   Most times I just add these games to my list and never download any.  This one I did right way.  All so like the fact they are giving the PS4 and PS5 version out.  So when that day I do mange to get my hands on PS5 will have a better looking version.  Not like the PS4 is bad looking, it’s amazing.  So far from what I have played, have been having lots of fun.

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2020 by getbent57

Fall_Guys_Ultimate_KnockoutOne of the free PlayStation Plus game for August 2020 is Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.  Seen a much of people talking about it so gave it a try.  The file size is pretty small, just under 4GBs.  You play as little bean like thing.  They you and 59 others try to make it over, under and past crazy obstacles.  It is a battle royale game.  With the twist of being like the TV shows Wipeout or MXC.  Gave it a try for two rounds.  The first time didn’t get very far. The second got a bit farther.  Going to give it another try.  I wouldn’t have pay money for it.  However would have it had four player couch co-op.

Destiny 2 Hands On

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 30, 2018 by getbent57

Played the open beta for Destiny 2 when it was out last summer (July 2017).  Back then like the smooth movement but it was very boring to play.  Felt very generic.  Well gave it another try now that is one of the free game for PlayStation Plus members (September 2018).  The open levels of the game are the same from the beta.  Forced myself thought that again.  Wanted to see what happens after that.  Once you get passed that the game becomes much better.  Only played about three story missions and one public event.  Must say this was very fun.  Think I will be keep playing it.  Well until Red Dead is out.  If you are a PS Plus member and have the hard drive space (80 GB’s or so) it’s well worth the download.
