Boring techno-bable to some I'm sure, but I find that quite interesting.....
Some people want to be able to get into a car and drive.

Some people want to know what compression ratio the cylinders are running at on the car, as to better understand whats possible and what's not.

A lot of stuff washes over me still, but a few bits stick and you soon build around it. I love it.

I'm like this, but for software instead of hardware. Very lonely. :|

Don't believe you.

I'm sure there's a huge thriving community that's up to their neck in software development and analysis discussion.

I'd expect you to be entrenched in it already :lol: .

No, what I meant by that is that the percentage of players who genuinely care about the type of gameplay intricacies I'm attracted to is being completely dwarfed by the percentage of players who spend all day fantasizing about multi-terabyte RAMs and dodo feather cooling systems.

That's a bit of a pointed, waggly finger comment though isn't it - let them enjoy their thing, no wonder they won't let you play :lol: .

Wasn't meant like that! Absolutely nothing wrong with being excited about cool new tech in and of itself. A lot of it goes straight over my head but more power to them. :)

Yeah, I know what you mean though. Very much so.

Everyone has an appetite for everything I think, just in differing quantities.

It's tricky to gauge, so often those sort of specific engagements can seem odd, or lonely.

I might be in the minority but the battery life on my launch controllers is still pretty good despite heavy use. I have no rational explanation for this but I must be in the minority.
Same here. I have a pale blue one from the first revision of the PS4, the Uncharted 4 special edition. On a full charge it'll last me a good few nights of gaming before I need to charge it again. Probably had it around three years now.

My PS5 controllers are appalling on battery durability.

Real nonsense.

Nice save. Another 5 minutes and Jim Ryan would've been on the phone. ;-)

Rumoured May 2020 PS+ games are Dying Light and Dark Souls Remastered.

Not bad, if it's true.

Strange they made a whole scene of cancelling, refunding everyone to just put it back 3 weeks?. The leak must've forced their hands I guess?

I preordered FFVII remake digitally and that was delayed longer and I wasn't refunded.

I agree, it does seem weird for such a short delay. And ghosts of Thsiuma is July 17th.

So, no.

May PS+ games are:

Cities: Skylines
Farming Simulator '19

Jesus... :lol:

The comments on the PSN blog should be entertaining.

Just had TLOU 2 completely spoiled by an utter cunt posting randomly in a Twitter thread.

What a piece of shit.
