Leaker is still undefeated

ID: hqfg1pi

He’s top 2 and he’s not number 2

ID: hqfjtiv

If the leaker says he is number 2, no one can claim to be number 1

ID: hqftca3

At this point it's really more of a strategic early announcement.

ID: hqfkqrv

Literally. Articles tried to deny strikers for royale. This leaker is goated.

ID: hqft8v5

Plot twist: this leaker is Sony's marketing team doing earlier announcements when they feel like it without moving official last Wednesday of the month timing

You guys should try Dirt 5 on PS5. The Dualsense features of this game is absolutely insane.

ID: hqfh7k0

Good to hear, excited to try it out

ID: hqfi1ag

this game support 120Hz right? and can i play with a G29?

ID: hqfin4a

yeah Dirt 5 support 120hz

ID: hqfn802

You could theoretically play the g29 with any PS5 title. So don’t you worry!

But tbh hold off on the wheel for Dirt 5. Let it be a demo for Duelsense for you. You’ll thank yourself for it.

Will be downloading just for this. I’ve been waiting for the past year, since I got the damn thing, for any game to even try to match Astro’s Playroom’s level of duelsense features. It’s baffled me that I haven’t found a decent racing game that uses the adaptive triggers. Destruction Allstars tried.. but.. well… that game is a hot mess.

Returnal uses haptic feedback quite well.

Death Stranding Directors Cut has been impressing me with its use of them. Returnal is the best I’ve seen other than Astro though.

Nice, two PS5 games and one P5S game.

ID: hqft18w

I am so sorry for what they’ve done to your joke.

The leaker is godly

ID: hqfg9e8

We shall watch his career with great interest

I’ve been waiting to Persona 5 Strikers for so long. Finished Royal in September and I ALMOST bought strikers but I really needed a break from the grind of Royal. So glad my patience has paid off.

ID: hqfkfog

It's so much fun! The story retreads a lot of old ground and isn't anything nearly as special as Royal, but the real draw is all the character interactions. It's really great to get the gang back together again and see them all interact again. The dialogue is mostly great and there is a ton of it. Also a bunch of new really great tracks. I hope you enjoy it!

Will playing strikers spoil anything major from p5? I was just past the space level when I stopped and I plan on restarting and playing royal.

ID: hqfmaj4

I thoroughly enjoyed Strikers. On paper it is a Musou game but genuinely feels like Persona 5 (story, music, character). Highly recommended especially now it will be free.

Really excited for deep rock.

ID: hqfnkuo

It looks fun to me as well! Any idea if it's doable solo?

I wish they'd drop these early so I could play for my long weekend 🙁

ID: hqfo9tw

Definitely doable solo. You can adjust the difficulty and solo provides you an automated helper drone you can control somewhat. Plays best with more people though and its easy to jump into a lobby or active game

ID: hqfq95x

It's perfectly playable solo, you get a robot to help you out which isn't the same as other players but does have a couple of advantages that humans don't. Rewards increase with difficulty but not by a lot, so you're not punished or missing out for playing on lower difficulties if you prefer that or want to spend some time learning.

However playing with randoms online is more fun because you get to see all the cool abilities and guns, and DRG has one of the friendliest communities I've ever seen.

This is a really good month! Both Dirt 5 and Deep Rock Galactic are PS5 versions too!

ID: hqflc9c

Is deep rock galactic fun solo? I’ve been holding off on getting it because it looks like it’s only really viable in co-op, which my high latency at home can’t support :/

ID: hqfmkgz

Solo and co op kinda feels like 2 different games in my opinion and I enjoy both of them. However, co op is what breaks up the monotony of a procedurally generated mission based game with no story or anything. The gameplay and visuals are amazing though and you constantly experience new things even when you are doing objectives you've done before.

ID: hqfnuno

I got the game on Xbox a week ago and been having a lot of fun exclusively playing it solo with randoms. The game has a robust pinging feature which works really well for communication. There's something really satisfying about completing a tough mission with zero words exchanged, only pings and the "ROCK AND STONE" salute. The Xbox version does support in game voice and text chat if you plug in a keyboard, I'm hoping the PS version does as well.

The community itself is quite positive and chill so whether you drop into someone else's game or they come to yours, it's most likely gonna be a fun time.

Edit: whoops I misread your question and I would say co-op might still be viable despite your high latency. I haven't had any noticeable problems with lag even when playing with >100ms ping. No character rubberbanding or teleporting enemies for example.

Im excited to try out Dirt 5. I haven’t played that franchise since the 3rd game and I loved it.

ID: hqfk9x3

Probably my favourite PS5 game we have gotten on Plus this year was Wreckfest. If Dirt 5 is even just half as good I will fall in love with it as well.

ID: hqfdcnd

Just so you know, its much more arcadey compared to some of the others in the series

ID: hqfijpg

does it have a campaign? i remember hearing that troy baker and nolan north are voices in this, which is odd since i didnt know these games had story modes lol

Persona 5 Strikers

PSA this is action game but you need to play Persona 5 (RPG) first because it takes place after and has spoilers of past events.

ID: hqffubi

Persona 5 is already on the Ps+ Collection anyway? Though I guess it costs about 100 hrs of your free time… lol

Deep Rock is an absolutely fantastic game, I've been playing for a few years now and it just keeps getting better. Everyone must play it, this is not a request, consume DRG!

15 : Anonymous2021/12/29 16:37 ID: hqfd3fs

Ok, I'm very intrigued by Deep Rock Galactic...

ID: hqfhgi5

Outstanding. Most fun I’ve had multiplayer with friends in years.

ID: hqfl9gr

with friends

Ah. See, there's the catch...

17 : Anonymous2021/12/29 17:09 ID: hqfi2zk

Is it possible to play DRG with randoms?

18 : Anonymous2021/12/29 17:23 ID: hqfkdjh

P5 Strikers is great. I would have platinumed it. But the grind for max relationship is a bit ridiculous.
