  1. Nothing says "badass" like baggy Hammer pants and checkered suspenders.
  2. I didn't realize Sony had confirmed that the PS5 would play all PS4 games. The console is based on the PS4 architecture so it should play all PS4 physical discs right out of the box. None of the goofy emulation that Microsoft does. I thought backwards compatibility was still in the "wait and see" phase. Apparently not. So, yeah, no reason to buy a PS4 Pro unless I spy a limited edition console on eBay that I like.
  3. Can someone who upgraded from the PS4 slim to PS4 Pro give me an idea how big the difference is, in practical terms. I don't have a 4k tv in the room the consoles are in, and have no immediate plans to buy one for gaming. I'm debating whether to buy one now, or wait. Honestly, I'm just fine with the way most games look (I still play PS3 and X360 regularly and have no issues with the way those games look, for that matter). Only real reason to buy a Pro now is for the handful of games that might not run well on the Slim. I've still got God of War, Nier Automata, and Sekiro on my pile. I kinda want a system that plays those three fairly well. Not too concerned about occasional frame rate drops unless they're frequent and terrible. Debating buying a pro. Might be a waste of money if I decide to buy a PS5 soon after release. I'd prefer to wait a while till the library is built up, but I may not. If most games are really backwards compatible and the console launches with some system sellers I want.... FWIW, most of my PS4 collection and want list is indie games and remasters - which don't require the power of the PS4 slim, to begin with. Can someone throw out some pros and cons, or games that run poorly on the slim? Thanks.
  4. Release date for the Animal Crossing/Doom crossover game we've all been demanding for years now. Edit: Apparently, Animal Crossing and Doom Eternal are two different games. Hmmm.... My island is going to be a lot less blood-soaked than I originally thought. It does appear that both games are going to release on the 20th, though.
  5. So, uh, the problem with my PS4 was that I stuck the disc in the PS3 (one shelf down, right below the PS4) by mistake. The PS4 console didn't detect the disc because.... there was not disc in the F***ing machine. I am dumb. Seriously, seriously dumb. Fortunately, the console seems no worse for wear even after I poked around with it last night. Still kinda thinking I'll buy a Pro when I get paid mid-week. Or at least start watching sales. We're starting to see some games that run well on a Pro and really poorly on a standard slim (Control). I'll be really surprised if Ghost of Tsushima runs well on the vanilla console. Planned to pick up a Pro before TLOU 2 and Ghost hit shelves anyway. As many 7th and 8th generation games as I still have to play, I'm kinda wanting wait awhile before I pick up a next gen system. We'll see.
  6. The Nikki-Alexa stuff is so goofy, it's endearing. Alexa's a hard pass for me, but i tend to not change the channel if she's in a tag match. When they split up the team, Nikki seems like the natural choice to stay babyface. So the odds are probably 90% that she turns on Alexa. Sigh.
  7. Thanks. I already had it unplugged twice tonight, so I'm guessing that won't solve the issue. I can always ask the it guys at work to take a look at it or exercise the warranty, so it's not a big issue. Been playing a lot of PS3, X360, and Wii lately, and the games I was planning to buy this month were mostly for older consoles, anyway. I feel like it's time to go out and buy a PS4 Pro. Should have done it last summer. Walmart has them marked down to $299 and I have a relative that used to work there and still gets the employee discount. So.....
  8. I unplugged it for about half an hour and set it on its side (per advice on the internet). What should I do for a "hard" reboot? I booted it into safe mode, but wasn't sure what to do after that. I'm leaving it unplugged overnight. Will check it again tomorrow. If no progress, I'll call customer support and see what my options are. It's still under warranty, so there should be a solution. I was planning to buy a Pro sometime in the spring anyway.
  9. Anyone ever have a game disc get stuck in the PS4? I was deleting some games and installing a few new ones and one of the discs seems to be stuck. Console isn't recognizing the game, so the menu command won't work nor will the eject button. Google suggests turning it on its side (vertical), so I'm going to try that. If not, there's a way to manually eject the disc by taking a section of the cover off and turning a screw, but I'm hoping to avoid that. Kinda concerned the console is broken (though it was fine right before this). Console is only 7 months old with moderate use. I was going to upgrade to a Pro soon anyway, but it's the limited edition Days of Play model, do I'm hoping it's not going bad already. Is this a common occurrence, or should I be concerned something else is going on. Edit: Tried the recommended methods to get the disc out. No luck. Fortunately, it's still under warranty, so I hopefully can get it fixed or replaced.
  10. I usually agree, but I'm opposed to the Fiend/Bray Wyatt being on my tv, so I'd be surprisingly ok with Goldberg coming in for one match and killing Bray's heat.
  11. I think he also said Jungle Boy was the son of actress Luke Perry. Lol, there was an awkward pause after he said "actress", then he finished the sentence, so I'm guessing he caught himself a second too late. My wife (who doesn't watch wrestling) saw a pic of Stu Grayson in his ring attire and wanted to know why he was dressed as "discount store Kratos". That... sums up Grayson's heel character as well as anything, I guess. Good show. I"m in the minority, but Riho is an immediate channel-changer for me, so glad to see someone else with the belt, even though I think it's just a short-term transition.
  12. I really wanted someone on commentary to make a "MAN-bulance" joke. I was disappointed.
  13. All this Network talk reminded me that I still subscribe to the Network, even though i can't remember the last time I actually used it. Rectified that oversight. DVDVR saved me some money. I feel like I should toss the site a few bucks as a thank you.
