    I’ve had a mess with settings to see if it’s something my tv was doing but didn’t seem to help either. I’ll keep trying and see what happens. 
    At first I thought I’d had a power cut overnight or something, but my Series X booted up normally and they’re on the same double wall socket. 

    Will keep an eye on it! No issues playing it though. Which is good as I’m loving R&C :D 

    Glad you’re enjoying Ratchet at least! 

    A Reddit thread trying different settings for rest mode, it might help.

  2. Been lucky enough not to encounter anything myself but the PS5 has had a lot of rest mode bugs. It seems to be linked to the firmware where various things like HDMI CEC, USB ports, external storage are telling the PS5 to turn off even in rest mode. I think you can try workarounds by disabling stuff in settings and it will no doubt get resolved in future firmware updates but frustrating none the less. The firmware and OS has a lot of potential but definitely came in hot for the PS5 launch and is certainly a little undercooked at the moment.

  3. Like others have said the 2016 remake isn’t the best example of the series, it was a bit of a rush job to tie in with the movie  but served a purpose at the time.

    As for Rift Apart I thought it was incredible, it’s just a really great feel good game which you need every now and then and you can’t help playing through it with a big smile on your face. The visuals are some of best I’ve seen up till now, excellent dual sense features and audio and SSD stuff is kind of mind blowing with whole worlds loading in a blink of an eye. To have a showcase for the PS5 this early on has me really excited for the future of the system.

    Highly recommend a challenge mode play through as well, I just finished my first challenge run through and it was even more fun than the first. Having a full Arsenal of weapons and a levelled up RYNO you never know what might come through a rift!

    Also give me some post game Rivet content please.

    Yeah, apparently that game is a few years off yet. I wonder if we’ll see anything more of Perfect Dark? Gotta imagine that Fable will have a strong showing. The thing has been in development for a while now.

    Yeah got fingers crossed they get Fable right, it should be in good hands with Playground now. Imagine we will see more of Evowed, Obsidian seem pretty efficient in getting games and content out.

    Indeed. I’m hoping Halo has a strong showing. I really want the series to return to its past glory....

    Apparently Hellblade 2 will not be shown at the show.

    Yeah hopefully the extra time on Halo has helped, some screenshots they released already looked loads better.

    I don’t think Everwild is being shown either which makes you think other studios are ready to share what they have cooking.

  6. I know none of you play Dreams here (shame on you all) but I’ve just created a Twitter account to share what I’m making in Dreams. Feel free to follow if you’re interested in what I’m making.

    Two games I’m making at the moment.

    .. for now...


    I reckon there's a very decent chance they will go ahead with it next year; as per the leaked plan document (and as they have just done so on their PC store).  Would be a real deathblow to Sony & Nintendo's third party support that Microsoft could easily absorb the damage from (thanks to Gamepass revenue changing the console industry game).

    Yeah true, wouldn’t be the first time a company downplays something only for it to rear its head again further down the line. It certainly feels like the industry is shifting this gen.
