Back on May 24, 2023 Sony put out a PlayStation showcase video.  It was a bit over an hour and was packed full of new games.  As well as other we have known about.  The biggest was at the end, Spider-Man 2.  Which showed off lots of game play.  The video was a mix of big titles as well indie ones.  One thing that stood out for me is they are re-releasing the PS1/PS2 Metal Gear games.  All so making a remake of the third, Snake Eater.  If you missed the show or want to see it again you can > here or below.

PlayStation Showcase May 2023

There is a big PlayStation showcase in the works for May 24, 2023.  From what I have read it will be focusing on the PS5 and VR2.  Most time companies wait till June to roll out their big news.  So guessing Sony wants to get ahead of everyone else.  Am looking forward to seeing if there will be any games I would like.  Do have my fingers cross they announce some cheaper storage upgrades for the PlayStation 5.

Immortals_Fenyx_RisingHave been been thinking about buy a copy of Immortals Fenyx Rising off and on for a few years now.  It looks like a game I might play.  But the price point was too high to take that gamble.  Well I seen that has/had it going for $27.94 for the PS5 version.  Going to looks up some new gameplay videos.  If I like what I see will buy the game.

No Man’s Sky Running A Mini PC

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 24, 2023 by getbent57

A few posts back talked about getting a PC copy of No Man’s Sky.   I have a Minisforum UM580 with an external hard drive.  Downloaded and installed it to that, like all my other games.  Know it will take longer to load but I like having lots of games installed.  Booted up and was talking a long time to load.  Even slower than the PS4 version.  Then the computer crashed and shut off.   Tried again and this time lower the frame rate for the game.  This time it worked fine.  The next day tired to play again and it crashed.  So decided to move it to the M.2 drive.  The load time was super fast and it didn’t crash.  Which was nice.

No Man’s Sky On PC

Have owed my copy of No Man’s Sky for the PS4 since the day it came out back in 2016.  It is one of my all time favorites.  Well have bought another copy of it for my mini PC.  Have had it in my Steam wish list for a long time now.  It was on sale for 50% off.  They do that a lot when there is a big update out.  So decided just to get it.  This way during game nights we can play some four player coop locally.

No Man’s Sky Interceptor Update

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 19, 2023 by getbent57

A few posts ago talked about the No Man’s Sky update, Interceptor.  In that one said I got my hands one of the new ships.  Then I need to get the new jetpack and multitool.  Luckily this can be done at the same time.   When you go to one of the new multitool places for the first time you get the jetpack.  Jason Plays has a video where you can get a great S class multitool.  Which you can see > here.  Got it and now need to upgrade it.

State Of Play – Final Fantasy XVI

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 16, 2023 by getbent57

Back on April 13, 2023 there was a new PlayStation State of Play for Final Fantasy XVI.  While I am not into this series.  Read this one will be action combat instead of turned based.  So gave this a watch.  If you missed it out want to see it again you can > here or below.  Well It looks interesting in spots then it looks terrible at the same time.  What turned me off was all the flashing lights during combat.  It gets so bad you can see anything else.  Think I will be passing on this game.

No Man’s Sky Interceptor Update – Hands On

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2023 by getbent57

Gave some of the new No Man’s Sky update, Interceptor a try.  Did watch some videos on this before booting the game up.  My goal was to get the jetpack first then a ship.  To do this you need to got to certain planets and attack the Sentinels.   Some times the will drop an item that will takes you to a place where a jetpack and ship locater are.  Wasn’t having any luck with that.  So just kept fighting the waves.  Once the fifth wave is done it marks a ship location automatically.  While doing that had to turn down the difficulty on the combat.  Found it annoying.  When I did get the ships location.  Lucked out, it was an A class that looked cool and had nice colours.  Now need to get a jetpack and new multitool.
