Callisto Protocol might be worth playing through since I never got a chance.

I really haven't paid much attention to the actual BD/DVD Performance of the Drive...but found this story from last December on comparing both the XB Series X and PS5 BD Drive Performace and how it stacked up with standalone Units...

That article barely touches on the topic of upscaling, and doesn't go into details like properly deinterlacing DVDs. I haven't popped a DVD into my PS5, and don't really intend to (it sounds like a jet engine, not easily drowned out by my measly built-in TV speakers), but if folks are saying it looks like dogshit, then that's likely one of the issues. Playing back my DVD backups via Plex seems to look pretty decent, given the source material, so either Plex or my TV are handling them better.

You want to plow someone's field or plant their seeds? I had no idea this was a cooperative experience.

Okay cool. That third game is one I actually wanted and considered buying.


Here's a review. Looks fun. I think there's a one or two hour trial with PS Plus Premium. I might start it out now.

October is one of the better PS+ Essential months. I'm interested in trying out all three games.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I started Callisto Protocol a few weeks back. Itís fine. Seems to get a bad rap depending on gamer expectations, but Iíll finish it.

Weird West falls in the ďwasnít for meĒ category. Just didnít enjoy the little bit I played of it at all.

Farming Simulator is as advertised, nothing more or less. Also ďnot for meĒ but ok for achievement/trophy hunting I guess.

Callisto Protocol got average reviews and that's pretty spot on with my thoughts on it. It got a 69 on metacritic which is mixed or average. It's not like the reviews were terrible.

Not sure if your post was completely in jest or not, but there is coop in the game. I've never been able to try it as I don't know anyone else who has even played the game, but it seems like it would be fun.

Jason Schreier just tweeted that Jim Ryan is apparently stepping down as head of PlayStation.

I think that's on Gamepass. I tried it. Seemed interesting.

I think the big issue with CP was the Dead Space remake was on the horizon at the time and people were like "I'm waiting for that."

What does DTF mean?
DTF (comparative more DTF, superlative most DTF) (Internet slang, dating, vulgar) Initialism of down to f**k. ( willing to engage in casual sex without necessarily seeking that in particular) I really want an LTR, but I'm DTF if you're hot and dumb.

Weird West is indeed on Gamepass, but in their Leaving Soon bucket, in case anyone wants to take a look now.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I need a new gaming headset. I'm thinking of picking up this Razer Kraken. I have a similar one from 2019, but the material where it goes around your ears is starting to come off in little pieces and it's getting on me and my clothes. I'm thinking about buying this one for $49.99 unless anyone has a better recommendation around the same price (I can pay a little more). https://www.bestbuy.com/site/razer-k...?skuId=6330450

If you donít need a new headset, just new earpads, you can buy those at Amazon. Thatís what I did for my Sony Pulse 3D headset and they work great again now/

Thanks! I didn't even know you could just buy new earpads.
