@static_shock: I haven’t yet mate but I’m buying it in a couple of weeks. I’ve heard good things!

How difficult is it compared to the Souls series?

Might be a dumb question but when they say PS5 is going to be backwords compatible does that also go for digital games? I mean if you have a bunch that are digital only from the PS4 will they transfer to the PS5? Also with online player games, will those from both consoles be able to crossplay between PS4/and ps5? It would suck if it would divide the player base.

Yes, PS5 backwards compatibility will 100% include your digital PS4 games. In all likelihood, Sony is simply going to use the Xbox One's BC as the blueprint — meaning, your digital purchases will carry over, your save files will carry over (via the cloud or a flash drive), and the games will access the same online servers from last gen. Regarding your last question, if you're playing Red Dead Redemption II on your PS5 and decide to hop online, you'll be playing with both PS4 & PS5 players on a shared server.

I've only just started playing it, so I can't tell how difficult it is yet. I'll let you know, though.

@static_shock: @doofasa:

I honestly don't think Sekiro is harder than the Souls series. They're about the same, with Sekiro having the most forgiving respawn locations / bonfires in the entire series, by far (almost every single one is right outside the boss arena, some with zero or 1 enemy between the two). It punishes Souls players because you can't dodge the same way. You need to adapt to the new playstyle, and there are two boss fights - one in the beginning and one middle-ish - that really train you. Once you overcome those two bosses, you have learned how to play and beat Sekiro.

Thanks for the info mate.

I'll definitely need to retrain myself then, as I was a dodge based Souls player that very rarely used parry or riposte. Looking forward to it.

Parrying is much different, too. It's like active blocking, and a whiffed parry doesn't leave you open; a parry is like a well timed block. Some boss fights really do feel like engaging sword fights and it's a great back and forth. Rather than trying to reduce their health, you need to break their posture.

Yeah the reason dodging is different is the lack of iframes. So dodging is literally used for dodging the attacks, not dodging through attacks.

My most recent purchase was LEGO Marvel Avengers Season Pass on Ps4. I can't believe I spent money on it, as I should not have considering the original game has glitches. Oh well... It's still fun..

Bump.

Does anyone have a 'good' ending on FNAF: Help Wanted? A way to get rid of the bunny toy?

I have completed 75 % of LEGO Avengers! Now it's time to finish the whole storyline again through freeplay. I can't wait until I get to 100 %.

@eslay03: Saw that. It sucks, but I'd imagine they'd still be able to show off whatever games they were planning on showing.
