      That's weird, Barrett looks alright to me. #canon #bestdateoption

  2. I'm in on the physical for the trilogy. I think the graphical improvements look interesting, more than I honestly expected. It's been such a long time since I played these and the previously released direct ports weren't enough to get me on board again. It'd be cool if they made some QOL gameplay adjustments too. "Censorship" aside, it's always a double edged sword changing the look of classic games. Most people will look at it and go "damn, that's a solid upgrade" and maybe dive in again if they feel like it. A few pessimists will hate anything that doesn't look like the originals (which they probably also hated), but would also hate it if they just did another set of upscaled direct ports... basically just hate everything.
  3. The only thing I care about, is Corey Marshall in the dub for it? Can't go 20 years and change Ryo's voice all of a sudden. I'd hate that. Otherwise, it seems like a good way for Yu Suzuki to tell his story without burning through too many more millions making games. As much money as I dumped into the Kickstarter for Shenmue III, I haven't gotten to it yet. I don't need a Shenmue IV yet though I'd like to see it happen.
  4. Games and general hobby stuff seem unimportant compared to the mountain of unfinished work I feel like I go into every weekend with.


    Even if said unfinished work is mostly by design, and not necessarily my fault.  A lot of it is too intricate to do on my own, I get hit in a lot of different directions, and getting information out of people is pulling teeth lately.  My bosses understand this and give me a very long leash, but I put a lot of pressure on myself.

     

    If I weren't drowning a little bit and not particularly motivated to do so, I'd kind of want to spend time this weekend catching up... but I never really catch up and in truth it's probably time better spent rejuvenating.

     

    I can't really relax though.  I can't stop thinking about it, even if I know it won't really do me any good.  And it doesn't feel like anything I do is enough of a distraction.

      Good suggestions, thanks guys.

       

      @DaivRules I do tend to write down what I have up in the air at least, however not as much the roadblocks and expected resolutions.  Mostly because they always tend to be the same answers, "not being able to get the information or feedback I need" and "I don't know" respectively. xD  This can drag on for weeks or months, depending on managements interest in any given project at any given time.

      Which is almost never properly communicated.

      I’m pretty sure that’s universal so if a roadblock is a person, I’ll call them out “Waiting on email response from Joe Smith for DynamoDB connection uri and permission. Emailed on 10/1. Will follow up on 10/5 9am.” 
      If I don’t get a decision back within 72 hours or follow up, the project is taken off priority work and the person is notified. People learn to not request stuff be started if they’re not ready to proceed.

      It's a good suggestion, better organization of this stuff probably would help.  Thanks

  5. Just to clarify, you'd need to connect to be updated to current firmware, no? So if you couldn't connect, you wouldn't be able to update, to be able to connect without issue. No? Maybe they don't require a secure connection for a simple firmware download? Or throwing it on a USB stick, I guess... but just looking to the future, I'm not sure if you can do USB firmware updates on PS4/PS5, or most devices.
  6. Not counting Limited Run or other limited print groups... Looks like it's just Dying Light 2 (PS5), Metroid Dread (Switch), and a physical copy of Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! (Switch) Oh, and Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker (PC, PS5)
  7. I guess all TV's and monitor's probably aren't built equally, but yeah... the response time advantage is way worth the dip in color quality with Game Mode on. Every time I set something new up I forget about Game Mode, and it's always a huge relief when I turn it back on.
  8. If that's true, I'd say it's a realistic assumption that Sony requires secure connections to PSN... so if the device has a certificate and it does expire, then I could see PS3's on an inappropriately old firmware version losing access altogether and not just certain pages through the web browser. If you're concerned, just make sure your PS3 is updated. If this were really going to cause a problem I'm sure more outlets would be reporting on it or Sony would comment.
  9. I'm far from an expert on the subject... but certificates would apply to the server side, not the client side, right? Like I need to renew the cert for HTTPS access to my server, but I don't need to renew a cert on my laptop to access it. So there's a case to be made that if Sony didn't renew the certs allowing for secure connections to PSN, that PSN may go down. But obviously they'll renew it. EDIT: Old devices connecting to old, unmaintained servers would probably be the only things really at risk.
  10. I really can't explain it. On paper, I should probably hate Death Stranding, it's tough to explain what it is without sounding boring and it probably is for a lot of people... but the sum of its parts just seems to work for me. Playing through it a second time on PS5 and while I do feel like I've been there, done that already... I haven't bounced off of it yet. Still going, it's still pretty cool.

     

    If you don't feel something when you get to the top of the hill looking at Port Knot City, and you start to make your way down to it as the music kicks in... you just have ice in your veins.

      Honestly one of my favorite games on PS4. When I talk about Death Stranding to myself it's a hard sell. Why do I love this game? I don't know. Just boot it up, play it, and it's a damn good time 😅

      I enjoyed the story when I picked it up again after initially quit after 15 hours, but the post-game grind was a chore and a half.

  11. Didn't realize the PS5 generation was over already. Lots of time left for that investment to redeem itself.
