  1. Thing is on that, even when you watch videos of the developers giving tips and demos, they explicitly encourage some farming of the earlier Biomes. And with RNG being what it is, you may well find a little farming ends up being the whole level. I do agree it's a bit fruitless. You get the same proficiency whichever route you choose, so that's annoying, but it's being able to buy an eg Astronaut or that Artefact you like, or just a Silphium vial. Either way, a maintenance outage to Destiny tonight meant a good few goes tonight. Ixion is down. The fucker.
  2. I'm yet to have a Rest-related crash or anything, so I wouldn't be worried there. Mostly, it's the inability to change game.
  3. I have used Rest once, and successfully so. But a: risk of patching and b: intention to play Destiny 2 before I pick it up again. It's not a good enough solution.
  4. The lack of a way to suspend a run is certainly a hindrance on when I can play the game. I'd quite like to play it now - I've finished work, the wife is doing something. But I don't have any certainty that I can finish when it'll be time to make dinner or whatever. So instead, I don't play it. Nor do I start when it starts getting late. I hope they correct it.
  5. Yeah, I've seen Ixion twice, got him to the third phase both times, but keep fucking up getting back there. Even with the shortcut. Oh well. Improve! Luckily, the core game is fun.
  6. I was having a halfway decent run last night where I picked up a halfway decent gun, had the artefact for healing at low Integrity, and nothing too major on Malfunctions or Parasites. But, when I got to the Biome 2 level skip to the boss, I wasn't at full health and really wanted a heal and a health pack/astronaut. So I opened the door into the mountain and fucked up that room to the point of dying. Fuck.
  7. PS5 doesn't play PS3 games. I also don't appear to own the PS4 version, so presumably whenever they gave it away on PS Plus, they didn't give it away as a cross-gen title PS3 to PS4.
  8. I'm really happy with my PS5 so far. It's been almost entirely stable (I have had a couple of crashes, especially in the earliest weeks, but nothing like the experiences of some) the PS4 Back-compatibility has been flawless so far, and the PS5 games have been actually surprisingly good. Demon's Souls, a game I abandoned on PS3 either at Phalanx or immediately afterward, was brilliant with the faster loading and therefore quicker retries. Astro's Playroom is about as excellent a pack-in as you can ask for. Miles Morales was an excellent time, Sackboy was surprisingly great fun. And
  9. I don't think I've had any game on PS4 or PS5 where there's an in-game button press to exit to the OS dashboard.
  10. There is a pause menu from which you can Restart Cycle.
  11. I think the point he's trying to make is that there is no Main Menu. The game cold boots you to the start of a new run directly. So them adding that functionality at this point requires a little more thought and design. Perhaps it can create the suspend state and dump you to a "you must now close the game from the OS" prompt, and have it so the cold boot now checks for a suspend state before dumping you to a new run, I dunno. But I think he's just saying that it's not part of the game that there's this main menu.
  12. I made some progress this morning, and actually got to the Biome 2 boss. The section in 2 where you transition indoors and Severeds start turning up had been kicking my ass a few too many times, but I have now cleared it! Phew. I ended up farming the entirety of Biome 1 first, with the exception of the challenge room (and things I couldn't get to) just to get a gun and some health. So I killed Phrike and on to the Crimson Wastes I went. Slowly but surely I worked my way through it, really trying to safeguard my health (and not really succeeding) but I got there. I nearl
  13. I think probably not. I think the PlayStation currently needs to think you're listening on headphones to do 3D.
  14. The Daily is a pretty straightforward effort today. A high level Doombearer (not a gun I'd seen before) and pretty easy mods.
