Do you still play Destiny? I was a player from the BETA until recently...that game isn't what it was but hard to get away from
Nah dropped it years ago, like you say, it's a time sink. I tend to avoid anything like that nowadays... but it they ever release a VR patch for Elder Scrolls online I am fecked.

I downloaded Horizon Zero Dawn when it was free awhile ago and the hunting ground where you have to tie down one of the bird machines and do a critical hit is killing me. Last thing I need to get the platinum, watched a bunch of videos but no success.

Did you try changing to Story mode/lowest difficulty? What's your problem with it?

Yeah I'm trying with the lowest difficulty, the problem is that most of the times the R1 sign doesn't appear and I end up walking around the bird waiting for it like an idiot.

That happened a few times for me as well but the problem for me was I hadn't used enough ropes to tie it down.

Damien gave some sound advice, but I'd also change strategies to see which suits you, a different route or a different approach can make a lot of difference in this game. Which makes it brilliant imo

Yeah I really need to get back to it at some point. Though my dumbarse will likely start again :nervous:
Same here. The longer I leave it the more I'm holding out for a PS5 upgrade.

I can only imagine what Kojima would do with the DualSense.

I doubt there'll be one. They seem to have moved on to two new projects

When I play again, it'll be on PC for that upgrade as I don't see a PS5 specific one any time soon sadly.


Great game. @esmufc07 is a big fan too.
Yeah, that's some endorsement :lol:

I need to get back to it myself, but I’ve a long list of games to get through. Like @Redlambs I’ll probably just start it over.

I know it's unlikely, but a man can dream.

I've no doubt Kojima had access to PS5 dev kits throughout development though so there is hope, no matter how slim.

Even without a patch the game looks gorgeous enough, but a PS5 patch would be great. It's such a weird gameplay loop but I'm feeling it... Well done Kojima.

I remember getting it, loading up and sighing to myself thinking 'this will probably be such a mess' but it ended up easily being one of my best game experiences on the PS4. It has some issues but there's something ridiculously addictive and satisfying in planning a route and getting those S ranks. Although I didn't play it at that time it's kind of the perfect lockdown game in some ways.

Have heard there will be some DLC and a ps5 patch. Pretty sure Norman Reedus said recently he was working with Kojima on something.

I'll definitely pick up Death Stranding if they release a PS5 patch for it. Never got around to it on release, but I like how weird it looks. It's pretty cheap now, as well.

Yeah I got it at launch, gave it 20-30 mins and then shelved it. Just by chance I saw the disc and thought why not? Slow burn at the beginning but it's getting going now. On my way to South Knot I think.

I thought the whole idea of traversal being an experience in itself was fantastic. It was like what people said made Journey brilliant I.e the journey but actually didn't becuase Journey was a bit crap, but this game nails it - every step feels important and meaningful in DS. That combined with the world building Kojima has done makes it a unique experience

Hey, don't dis Journey. Loved that game. :D
DS is great , though a bit boring once you've completed the main story.

Agree but Journey on release felt very interesting. It was one of those ah so not every game has to be like that games. The non-spoken multiplayer aspect was novel and the only other game which took a similar approach was Bientot L'ete.

Then probably less than three years after release it felt old because indie developers everywhere were releasing lots of those quaint, minimal experiences. Journey was no doubt a big influence but it was no longer as interesting.

FF7 remake (Yuffie DLC) and Ratchet and Clank reviews should be dropping in the next few days. Finally some exclusives to play on this machine :drool:

Anyone playing Remnant? Seems like a fun game but better when you are two or three. Im fairly new to the game so if anyone has just started or want to try it, I would be keen to team up
