      Until we get solid info from Sony, theres only speculation so far about the final list of features, prices, etc. The latest rumor I just read was this:

      https://bgr.com/2020/01/13/ps5-release-date-price-announcement-and-preorder-details-leaked/

      If true the price will be $499 and be available for preorder early February. And there will be full backwards compatibility with digitally owned games. And ps4 controllers will be forward compatible, which would explain that new extra back button attachment that was announced.

      Sony made the first announcement, but MS makes the first reveal. The Next Generation kicks off next holiday season.

    • Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
      Hows the Coronavirus impacting you? Thankfully I work from home and my job is not affected yet so I haven't had any work outages. I know quite a few people now having drastically reduced hours in the food industry and they'll be struggling to pay bills here by next week. I haven't been shopping since last Friday and it was a mad house then and only gotten worse from what I've heard. There is coronavirus cases in my county here in NY and it looks like the economy is going to crash. Maybe this new stimulus package will help? If they do send out checks to everyone like the Bush stimulus did, I'm going to have to throw that money right at my roof leak instead of additional food supplies. x_x I have one piece of roof that is not in good shape and apparently has been leaking for a while, buried under masses of snow until it recently all melted. Home insurance guy was a prick and doesn't want to cover it. I'll be switching home insurance companies just because I didn't like the guy. I also think my agent misrepresented to me the actual quality of the insurance package too.

    • The landscapes reminds me of legend of zelda windwaker except not all cell shaded. And the characters have a bit of a RWBY / Grandia combo look to me. Could be fun.

    • Good for MS to have backwards compatibility that good right at day one. MS and Sony can keep having console wars but with steam as a gaming competitor, they need to have "library wars" whatever platform has the most users with the largest libraries of games will have a significantly stronger fan base for years and years. Like steam... I couldn't imagine ever dropping that platform since I have to much invested in it. I currently have a large library of ps3 and ps4 digital games, if sony would commit to the library wars like MS is doing I'd be thrilled. Good for MS. If I had alot of xbox games I'd be very excited for the series x. Hopefully this will be a permanent feature going forward with all their new consoles over the years to.

    • I'm definitely going to play Ghost at some point, but aside from the clips I've seen of it the only other minimalistic UI game I've played is Dead Space. I'm about 5 hours in on it and it has no minimap, or anything cluttering the screen. The health bar and statis charge level is visible on the back of the armor and ammo is displayed as a virtual popup screen for each gun when being aimed. I didn't think I'd like this but I've gotten used to it and almost prefer it now. There is no clutter on the screen at all and instead of opening the menu to see my map, I click R3 and he does some objective homing scan on the ground to point me on the right path. More games should do this. And if godfall can implement it like Ghost or Dead Space in some way then it'll be nice to be able to see more of the action and environments without having to stare at dot on a minimap.

      I say that but for some games it's not practical to have a minimilast UI. They toned down alot for BFV and that sucked ass. I'd rather shoot at red doritos in the background than try to see enemies in the mess of environmental destruction, bad lighting and particle effects.

    • Sadly though I think Ghost is going to be an odd outlier for the minimal to no UI approach (plus it's very obvious that SP designed the game this way because they were going for the Kurosawa feel and aesthetic). The gameplay and the sheer vast openness of the map and environment made it so a UI would hamper you more than help you (plus the game is breathtakingly beautiful and marring it with anything more then they did would be an atrocity). Plus, as you noted, they implemented a vast variety of things to hide what wasn't needed until you actually called upon it (I love the guiding winds mechanic and think more games need to implement something like it). Based on that little bit of gameplay footage I'm of the opinion Godfall needs a UI or they're really going to have to figure out how to implement some sort of minimalistic hp tracker because this type of game needs some way of tracking that stuff (I mean I'll dump on Destiny any day of the week but there UI implementation is crisp and, imo, the ideal way of going about a UI in a looter type game (though I don't like their quest tracker in the least as I think that's garish as hell and right in your face)).

      Then again I'm still not all that impressed by what I see. It looks fun and I'd definitely be all about those dual blades but quite honestly I think it looks rather meh. Then again looters in general just aren't my thing anymore and I blame Destiny for killing that passion in me. Ever since playing it I just can't get interested or find joy in playing anything remotely of the genre (old school looters like D2 and Torchlight are exceptions because that's my jam, it's these new ones that lack anything remotely interesting for me).

      Playing through MW2's campaign again, I forgot how many batshit crazy watershed moments there were.   Like MW1 was way more grounded in reality. Both are great but MW2's campaign is like an 80's action movie at times. My heart still raced stealthing through the snow and hijacking the snow mobiles near the start. running through the favela tops, escaping the gulag. Its pretty fun experiencing it all again 10 years later with slightly better visuals. I'm glad it's this month's free game.

      Damn ground bee stung the hell out of my arm yesterday while I was weed whacking. If I could have gotten to their hive with the whacker I'd have shredded it into a million pieces and then ran for my life.  But the hive was in a concrete block. I sprayed it last night. I'll hit it with some expanding foam spray tonight to seal off the rest of them so they'll be buried alive.

      Now that the state of Mississippi has opted into the lottery, I can take a 15 min drive across the state line to a little gas station and buy tickets. Its astonishing how my state just refuses to even let us vote on it. People take their money to FL and GA for lotto tickets, and now the state we share out biggest border has it... on top of that most of the population is on the west side of the state anyways making it even easier. So dumb. I'm just glad I don't have to drive an hour plus to get tickets anymore. I can now make a weekly trip and try my luck.

      First it was a heat wave and now we got deluged with rain. Lol. We got so much rain the pool started overflowing at the white frame areas.

      The pool at max capacity is 4500 gallons and we only get 4000 delivered every year. The pool was getting a little low last week. Since last Saturday the pool got enough rain to fill it up over 500 gallons and overflow. So much water. 😮

      Can we just end this fucking year already before it starts getting anymore ideas?
      Fucking gutted over this. Grant was always my favorite host on Mythbusters.
      This news comes even more at a shock considering I also found out one of my old co-workers also died from the same thing.
      God this year sucks.......
