Donkey Kong Country 2 is on the SNES virtual console on Switch now and fuck, this game is as awesome and challenging as I remember.

I played through to the Phallanx demon in the first level of Demon's SOuls on PS5 without dying and then fell off some stairs and died back in the Nexus.

Then I fired up Valhalla and I'm 19 hours in.

PS5 is delish.

If it makes you feel better my controller isn’t charging on standby....

The wonderful life alteringly best PS controller ever...

It's crazy that the PS5 is nearly as large as my 70's record player. The controller is what makes it feel like a "next gen" experience for me. Here's to a grim winter indoors!

Yeah, it's replaced my PS4 pro in my entertainment unit and not looks like another shelf. I would like to get some black fins to make it less look like a tower fan on its side.

Do you find the controller goes flat fast?

Never heard of this till you posted it, looks fucking awesome. NES games with vague titles are the best, because I'll ignore them for years assuming it's shit, only to find out it's a gem I'd been overlooking.

I love that one the most out of all 3... Dixie's helicopter glide changes the game. The nautical/pirate theme works so well with the music... something about the 90s always feels aquatic to me.

Yes, definitely. It lasts about 4-5 hours -- but that was when I played the Astrobot game quite a bit. Games that aren't so heavy on the vibration/audio effects, I think might not be as bad? My controller also isn't charging during standby - but I'm sure that will be fixed pretty soon. I blew through all storage after installing a bunch of the PS plus collection, most of which I've never played.

But for a console launched during a pandemic, I am very impressed!

I put a 2TB external drive in the back, all PS4 games load onto external storage by default. Ghosts of Tsushima running beautifully of of that.

I got so much trade $ for those PS Plus collection games -it was so good to be able to keep them digitally

I’m going to Meatgrease while the Meatgreasing is hot, but Duke Nukem Forever is tonality wonderful during the present political climate. Spoof of Right wing type waiz while taunting the Left to the bejesus and back. Gameplay issues... Yes! PC only because 4 weapons are better than console 2. Frustrating at times because the game is retarded. Still. Theres a great game in here. Also boobs, because boobs do make everything better.

Ha! I used to think the ending of DNF was the worst thing I saw in years. I was so wrong and butt hurt after the third to last level then. Having 4 weapons instead of 2 makes this game so much better. And I guess like a drunk idiot I took the game too serious. It’s a spoof of a spoof, be it intentional or not. Gearbox can still go fuck itself, though. Rather play this 5 times a year, then any of the Borderlands ever.
