DualShock 4 Controller

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 16, 2020 by getbent57

I do hope at this years Black Friday sales the PS4 DualShock 4 controllers go on sale.  The Wave Blue one I bought back in 2015 is starting to ware a in spots.  Since I plan on keeping my PS4 forever would like a new controller.  Have held one of the newer versions of these.  They seem lighter and made a bit differently.  But yet the same.  All so thinking may be I should buy a PS4 Slim or Pro to keep in the box just in case mine dies.  Would wait for a big price drop first on that.  Will keep my eyes on the flyers.

Price Of Video Games

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 13, 2020 by getbent57

It back in 2015 I had a rant about the prices of games to up to $80.00 (Canadian).  With tax were I live it comes to about $92.00.  That is a lot of money.  So I would only buy a new game may be twice a year and then wait for deals on other I want.   Well the prices are gong up yet again for the new generation.  Was looking a the Best Buy flyer.  The one that was out showing of the launch of of the new PlayStation and Xbox.  Was shocked to see some of the prices. The PS5 and Xbox Series X games are going for $90.00.  Holy shit that is way too much.  Was planning on getting a PS5 in the summer some time.  But think now I will wait for a big price drop.  In Canada the Disc version of the PS5 it $650.00.  So at that with one new games and tax it comes to about $851.00.  Think I will be sticking with what I have for now.

No Man’s Sky Hours Played

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 9, 2020 by getbent57

Back in the begin of October (2020) made a post talking about jumping back into No Man’s Sky.  I have big time.  Had a weeks vacation and pretty much played it every night.  The games as been cross play for awhile now.  So was playing with a friend who own a copy on PC.  Must say it works great.  The voice chat works just as good.  Before I jumped back in think I had around 160 hours in that one save.  Loaded it up a few nights ago and it is or close to 190 hours now.  There are very few games I have many hours into.  Think GTA Online might be the most and this one might be the second.

Forgot blog about this last week.  There is some more awesome news to share for No Man’s Sky.  They announced Next Generation update.  As you might guess from the title it applies for the PS5, Xbox Series and PC.  Basically they are making it even better.   Besides looking better.  You will be able to build more and with more people.  I know at some point I will be getting a PS5.  You can transfer your save file over.  All this is great news but the best is for last.  It will be free for all who own the game all ready.  You can read all about by clicking the link above.  All so check out the trailer > here or below.

Prey

PreyHave added another game to my PS4 backlog, Prey.  Was looking at it for awhile in the cheap game section.  But keep putting it off since I only kind of had some interest.  I knew that PS4 and Xbox One games will be getting a lot cheaper now since the new systems will be out in less than a month.  This game got marked down again to $5.00.  So could not pass that by.  Going to keep my eye our for more cheap games.

On October 14, 2020 Sony put out a system software update 8.00.  It comes in at around 476MBs.  So its pretty small and quick to download.  When first read about this new update > here.  Figured the file size would be huge.  It does add some new things most stuff I wouldn’t be bothering with.  This did ad a nice new way to use 2-step verification.  Oh the biggest change is to the Trophy system.  It work with a level ranking now.

No Man’s Sky Jumping Back In

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 9, 2020 by getbent57

That that I have finished Ghost of Tsushima.  Decided to get back into No Man’s Sky.  It has been a very long time since I have played.  There has been two big updates I need to try Desolation and Origins Update.  Have been a fan of this game since day one.  Do believe I have close to 160 hours played.  With this two new updates it has made the game even better.  Think it will bring lots of new people in.  This game is very worth every penny.
