£29 for the 12 month subscription is an absolute steal.

I've only played the series sporadically so I might not be the best source, but I picked this up on sale awhile back and its great for anytime I want to game but not throw myself into something story driven.
Yeah, that's what I want it for really. Anytime I got a spare half hour or so, I can just jump into it and have a few turns without having to commit hours to a game. As long as it runs well on the console (I know the Switch version really struggles), I'll probably get it.

I bought Cyberpunk for €25. That's probably the cheapest it's ever going to get. No just waiting till next December for the PS5 Version.

The true north.
Did they even fix the bugs? Never heard about a big turnaround for it or anything.
I think a lot has been fixed given their extensive patches since release, but the "next gen patch" for ps5 is supposed to come out Spring 2022 I think. I played the game on PC last year but had to crank the settings down fairly low (my PC is old), I'll be waiting for that next gen patch before installing this.

No. The PS5 release was due out early this year and was delayed to get it into a decent state. It it was in a decent state it'd have been released. Playing it on release they could spend years fixing it and still have work to do.
It'll definitely be cheaper than that in time too. The Game of the Year Edition of the Witcher 3 is on sale for €15 pretty regularly and that was good, Cyberpunk is a total car crash with a terrible reputation.

Torn between getting Returnal or Guardians of the Galaxy.
Returnal. You'll get dozens of hours from that, you'll get about 10 with Guardians.

I was very skeptical before getting Returnal but I actually really enjoyed it. You have to approach with the right mindset and acknowledge that it's a very tough challenge but it is a really good game when you adjust to the difficulty.

From what I can read online Returnal seems like the type of gameplay that I really don't like. But here I have not read one negative word about it seems.

Disappointed Kena isn't on the sale but downloading it anyway as I have wanted to play it for a while. Did you finish it @Massive Spanner?

It's happened, one of my Dualsense controllers has the dreaded drift on the left joystick. Pretty aggressive too, I would say. And that's just after a couple of months, not great. I'll try some of the known fixes tonight but I really hope I don't have to send it to Sony.

Buy a new one, put your faulty one in the box and return that one.

Just did the storage expansion - 1TB. Got the SSD for £125 and the heatsink separate for £12.99.

Took me about 15 minutes. I've now got 1.6TB for PS5 games and a separate 1TB SSD via USB for PS4 games.

Sorted.

P.S. Returnal is still great even though I beat the first boss but now can't survive more than halfway to the final boss on Biome 2 :lol:

Doesn't help that after unlocking the health leech item I am yet to see it show up in my next 20 runs :mad:

Is this a common issue then? Oddly one of mine started drifting down on the right stick yesterday.

It has been widely reported, yes. All modern controllers are prone to it to a certain degree, it would seem, but I've never really noticed it on the many Dualshock 4 controllers I've had. It's supposed to be terrible on the Switch Joy-Cons as well, but I've almost always used the Pro Controller there.

Played a couple hours of Guardians of the Galaxy, really enjoyable so far. The gameplay is accessible and fun, if nothing special. The characters and writing are the real star here though. The main cast is excellent and doesn't suffer in comparison to the movie cast at all - in fact I think I already like them better. Even the secondary characters are great. If it can keep up this level of quality for 15-20 hours, that's money well spent at the current reduced price on PSN.

Yeah mine does after it's been off for 10-15 mins, I put it down to the plastic expanding as well.

I got a text this morning saying my PS5 order has arrived in Argos, went down this morning and they said someone already picked up my PS5 order reservation. They used my number. Then later found out that my Aunt got 4 PS5’s from Argos. What the feck.

Your aunt has hacked your phone/email as part of her grand scalping ring.
