PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

Recommended Posts

I had a browse of the PSN sale this morning and picked up a few games for my week off, most of which are indies. I nabbed...

  • Ara Fell: Enhanced Edition
  • Solo: Island of the Heart
  • Nex Machina
  • Downwell
  • Fat Princess Adventures
  • Star Wars: Republic Commando
  • Steamworld Heist
  • The Adventure Pals

A couple of these can be played on the Vita, which will come in handy for when the footy is on. I could have spent a few more quid in the sale as there are still some more indie games I wouldn’t mind picking up but figured these should be enough to keep me busy during the week.

I might actually install Downwell on my PS5 and go for the Platinum. Only need one more trophy: beat the game on hard mode. I lost my PSVita save, 'cause I'm an idiot, but it's a great excuse to start from scratch. :D

I’m dubious whether I’ll like it or not but I figured I’d give it a shot for a little under one fiddy.

It's a rogue-lite and it's got procedural elements so...YOU'LL LOVE IT!

Sold my PS4 at GAME after attempt number 3. I took it to one branch yesterday and they told me it had the wrong power cable. Found a 'correct' power cable and took it to my local store earlier, they refused to accept it because the controllers bar code was slightly worn off. Went back to the original store after and they had no issues with the controller. 

Kinda hard to part with the console, it's been one of the best I've ever owned but the PS5 has made it obsolete. Also traded in a pile of games and an extra controller, so I have plenty of credit for PS5 and Switch game pre orders for the foreseeable future.

My right stick is drifting quite a bit these days… I’m glad I’ve bought a new pad, but gutted I’ll have to wait a while before it gets here.

Just for my own curiousity(I've had so much varying stick drift issues lol) is this just a freely drifting stick all the time or does anything either trigger it absolutely or even conditionally? I know my maddest issue was I had stick drift but for whatever the hell reason it would ONLY trigger when I actually pressed....well, my right trigger. OFc in shooter's it's goddamn bastard annoying as you aim you aims then hit your fire but the aim drifts off...

It drifts most of the time but when you move it sharply it tends to settle until you make a small adjustment and it goes off again.

Cant wait for my new controller to get here… it’s a long wait though.

ah fair enough. ive had mild constant drift(can usually fix) but the actual trigger triggered drift was basically having off sights in every single shooter and id have to adjust a bit if it happened - luckily i dont play many precision shooters 😅

also this is one remedy i havent tried but came across today apparently you can add a 3rd stick in certain cases? im sure this at least alleviates some of the frustration at the problem whilst asmittedly not completely fixing it;
