I have not tested the firmware extensively but am using Boost and the external hdd feature.

 

It seems various system critical files are locked to the main internal drive including Share feature files etc. Games can be transferred back and forth which is awesome. I have moved lesser played games to the external and am installing a lot more games now. Stuff i don't play much or like to have are on the external. The process of copying was also pretty fast(faster than restore for a new drive!).

 

Not sure which games to test boost mode but i reinstalled BF4 which could be good to see if its 60 fps even more consistently.

I signed up for the beta but didn't get an invite to download, disappointed really as I would like those custom wallpapers.

I've been on the Beta for a few days now. Not managed to try Boost mode yet. Might test Dark Souls III tonight.

Speaking of hard drives has anybody tried the back-up/restore option that seems to exist now? I understand the old method involved clouding saves and re-downloading all your data etc and that wasn't an option before - has anyone used the new(to me) option without any troubles?

 

(not a new beta feature, but I believe introduced with the most recent OS update possibly?)

There was always a back-up option, but in my experience it was unreliable and just easier to redownload....

Just wanted to say, anyone with a PS4 who enjoyed animal crossing or harvest moon.... Go buy stardew valley. What. A. Game.

How does it compare to Sim Farm, the greatest farming simulator of all time?

I keep thinking I'll wait for it in a sale but that's probably because I'm spoilt by Steam/digital distribution. I don't even boot Steam anymore due to the sheer amount of money I kept spending on games I never played - thinking I'll get Stardew Valley eventually but with Zelda on the horizon and Overwatch still keeping my fancy quite well I've got no particular urgency about it atm. Maybe one for the summer!

In my opinion it's better than animal crossing and harvest moon. There is such a huge amount of things to do it's difficult to get bored. I was massively surprised by the combat element, which is great fun and could be a small game on its own.

 

You can choose to do whatever you want, be a fisherman, raise animals, grow crops, go hunting.... And the game changes with you. It's subtle but at first all you want is money and you have no energy so everything is time management. I'm currently in year 4, I have more energy than I could use in a day and money rolling in :)

There is no thread for Rock Band 4 so I'll put this here.

 

Rock Band 2 DLC has just been added meaning:

 

If you owned any of the Rock Band games on PS3 you can now get

 

Rock Band 1

Rock Band 2

Rock Band Blitz

 

tracks for Free!

 

Sadly you have to pay a bit for Rock band 3 but that's some good free tracks right there!

I was thinking of picking up Horizon for the week off I'd booked when Switch releases... but I've just thought about my backlog...

 

Witcher 3 (still on Act I, haha)

Uncharted Collection

Uncharted 4

Bloodborne

Tearaway 2

Infamous Second Son & First Light

Batman Arkham Knight

 

Guess I'll pick up Horizon at a later date! Haha

Well, Tearaway 2 doesn't exist, so that's one game off your list!

 

Anyway, I've never let a backlog keep me from buying new games (which then also end up on my backlog).

Surely Zelda's going to be enough to keep you busy for that week?! I'm planning to do nothing but play Zelda and sit on PS4 chat in all my gaming time, possibly dipping into Overwatch from time to time for a break - but I think for the first time in possibly ever I'm planning to smash out BotW as fast as I can to avoid falling off/getting bored etc. As for your PS4 backlog you've certainly got enough to dip into with The Witcher alone! Admittedly I feel off as I found it a bit overwhelming - but surely something like Second Son is pretty pick-up-and-play-esque?

His face keeps bothering me and it's completely topic-irrelevant but is that Mac DeMarco?

Nope, it's Jim Morrison lead singer of The Doors.

Coincidentally basically my uncles hero. He has a tapestry of the shirtless Morrison picture hanging in his house.

To be honest, I shop at Morrisons all the time, and it took me a while to recognise him.

Shame on you @Rummy for not recognising Jim Morrison! :o

 

As a brown kid I've never been too big on my knowledge of older music - though I know Jim Morrison and The Doors's names, I don't know faces too well to recognise them! I wondered if it was some old and famous folk, but my mate keeps going on about Mac DeMarco in the last few years and maybe he took some heavy inspiration from Jim(the Morrison kind, not the Flink kind). Ofc I've seen a lot more of the latter than the former due to YouTubes etc...he does look rather similar to that gif/pic though!

Braaaaah, I grew up as a semi-brown kid, (Dad was a darkie) and I know who Jim Morrison is. In fairness, I've always been reeeeally into music.

Yeah but it took me about 6 months to beat drahkon's high score on resogun

 

Yesterday I decided to play Resogun again. And just now I beat your record (you were talking about the Survival mode, right?).
