    I need to go back to it but I was definitely not as pleased with Deathloop as I expected to be.
    I think they made it more complicated than it needed to be, and that likely threw a lot of people off.
    Basically playing for 6-8 hours and essentially starting over to get to the "real" game is a hard no for folks I'd imagine

    I'm not a fan of the genre so I never gave Deathloop a try. Nothing I've heard has made me regret that decision.

    I wouldn't play it. Interesting concept that they did a poor job executing.

    I loved Dishonored, and I know I will love Dishonored 2 whenever I get back to it.
    Deathloop has great gameplay, but its all the other stuff that gets in the way. I feel like if they made it more linear, it would have been great, even if you keep the timeloop stuff, but giving people too much stuff to do and think about can go pear-shaped really fast.

    Is Grand Theft Auto fun and if so what’s the most recent one? Would be playing on PS5.

    Yes it is fun and it's GTA 5. It's 8 years old at this point, though. Rumors are that Rockstar will be announcing another one soon but who knows.

    yeah GTA 5 is the one you want to play, the other ones are pretty rough by comparison these days.

    At least IV introduced fast travel via taxis. Anything before that is almost unplayable to me

    Why the hell would you want to fast travel in GTA? Driving around at top speed with zero regard for the law while jamming out to the radio station of your choosing is like half the fun of the game.

    And you can still do that but when you just want to get to certain points for the story jumping in a taxi is awesome.

    Ok Unplayable was maybe a bit much but the taxi thing just made the later games so much more fun to play and have that flexibility to get around the big cities they created.

    I was never a huge fan of the exercising and needing to eat and all that shit, San Andreas is down on my list of favorites, though at the time it was pretty incredible.
    That said, I was mainly referring to the remastered collection which would have been what Love Tractor would have likely encountered if we didn't steer him to 5, and with the garbage state that was released in, I didn't want him to get into that when he could just get 5.

    Is the only allure of the version with the disc drive the ability to play blurays and/or compatible things you already have on disc?

    As far as I can tell. I went for the digital because I haven't used discs in years anyway. My entire PS4 library was digital.

    Right now I think most just snag whichever they can get their hands on. I was lucky enough to have the choice and definitely wanted the digital. Might as well save $100.

    Whatever you can get is what you take, lol. I wanted digital, but could only get the disc, so that's what I've got. It did come in handy cause I had Ghosts of Tsushima on disc, so I got the discounted PS5 update.

    I'm assuming if you end up with disc, you could just throw an external ssd on to use it for exclusively digital content.

    I am pretty sure they have the same hard drive. The only difference is the disc version is physically a little bigger. Think everything else is the exact same.

    and digital is $100 cheaper.

    Got it. Got in both queues but the disc version was way shorter so here we are. I assume it will kick me out of the digital version but we'll see.

    First time playing Alan Wake. Boy did this movement and combat not age well at all. It's so bad. Sprint and dodge being the same button is kind of funny, though. Looks like I'm doing bear crawls every time I start to run.

    Game is a lot of fun, though. Loving the world, lore, and story.

    Debating what to play next out of my backlog - Sinking City or Yakuza 6 (never played a Yakuza game before). Thoughts on either?

    What's a reliable external ps5 hard drive? The amount of storage on this thing is pretty sad when you consider how quickly it fills up. I don't even have a big library.

    You'll have to go internal if you actually want to install PS5 games on it.

    I would recommend the Sabrent. It's the most reasonably priced and is probably the easiest to install.
    Sabrent 1TB Rocket 4 Plus NVMe 4.0 Gen4 PCIe M.2 Internal Extreme Performance SSD + M.2 NVMe Heatsink for The PS5 Console (SB-RKT4P-PSHS-1TB)

    With external you can on and offload easier then deleting and reinstalling (at least that's what Sony says). That seems reasonable to me. I don't NEED everything ready to go necessarily as long as I can have somewhat easy access to games.

    I feel like internal I'd want to go up to 5tb or something to feel like it could hold a library. The promise of games that don't take up a ton of space hasn't really worked. Fucking MK11 is like 85GB
