Well, I finally managed to figure out which pinhole to insert the paperclip into, and can now open my stubborn disc tray on my old 360. I doubt forcing it open this one time will really fix the issue, which is probably something like a worn-out gear somewhere inside, but it should help. Dunno if I want to try it while it's on, but I'll watch a few videos tonight so that I can get a better idea of my options. I've also thought about getting a newer model off eBay, but not right now, and I still want to transfer my data to a 120gb HDD at some point.

Also, since I need to clear a TON of space on my PS4's HDD for Division 2 (at least 100gb), then I thought I'd get back to playing Doom. Yeah, I just now finished downloading an update, and I'm sitting at a whopping 78.89gb of space used by just this one game. I'm really going to need to grind through everything and get what I can and then keep the save data for later when I have a bigger/extra HDD, because I really want to play Division 2 but these massive game sizes are killing me (and I've still got several other games I want to play on my PS4, like AC Unity).

You know, I love Doom (2016) and all, but holy shit, at least Doom 3 gave us a flashlight. New Doom has incredibly dark interiors, which I'm hoping is seriously addressed in Doom Eternal (from what I saw, it is).

Decided to nab some of the trophies from the league challenge mode in Ninja Storm 4. I dislike how similar it is to the Ninja World Tournament and Survival modes, in that you don't regain health between rounds (but you do refill in each new match); to me that smacks of unnecessary carry-over and blurs the lines of separation between game modes.

Anyway, I completed the beginner and intermediate leagues, so all I have left are a load of matches in various "cups" before I can claim conquest of the advanced league. What I like is that the trophy unlocks on the champion's screen, meaning I get this great shot of whichever character I completed the final cup with (you can play them out of order, too!). This means I can plan ahead and figure out which character I want to get a winning picture of for the trophy unlock. I did it with a couple, though I came close to losing my matches because the AI suddenly decided to be as cheap as possible. Either way, I'm going to have to consider my options for the final cup because I would like to use a character I'm fond of.

Same strategy I used for Fallout 76; getting that in the mail today (for 20 bucks hell yeah). I will grab Anthem eventually, they just need to patch and balance it.

Nice to see another Dark Souls player, have you gotten into Bloodborne at all? That's my favorite. Sekiro is dropping soon as well, pre-ordered that.

Watched a walkthrough and lore video of Bloodborne, got all of H.P. Lovecraft's writings as a result of suddenly craving eldritch horror. But I can't afford it right now (both for money and for console HDD limit), same with Sekiro.

I also really, really want to get Division 2 first and play as much of that as I can stand before taking on another major project.

JMM: Spider-Man (PS4)


I need to get back to this game and check out some of these locations. Alas, I need to get an external HDD and Division 2 first.

edit -- bought a 2tb external on eBay, now I have to wait for it to arrive, then format it so that my PS4 can use it as extended storage. That much extra space will take a huge weight off my in-console HDD.

Also, beat all of the Survival challenge modes in Ninja Storm 4. All that's left is for me to do the "Road to Boruto" expansion and earn the S-rank for the story missions both there and in the main game. Won't be easy because of how stringent the game is about rewarding that rank for certain fights.

1) My HDD shipped, hopefully here by next week.

2) Picked up Division 2, so that I can stare at it longingly until I can play it (bonus points for getting the last PS4 copy the store had).

3) videgamedunkey's review of Devil May Cry 5 is hilarious, with those behind-the-scenes visualization shots making me laugh pretty hard.

It was free with Playstation Plus at one point.

Sekiro just downloaded today, game is super small I think it came in under 20 GB...can't wait to sink my teeth into that one...and scream at my screen ten minutes in haha.

Also I've been running around Fallout 76. Despite all the bad press I am actually having a lot of fun in that one.

So when I went to see my dad tonight, he was playing Division 2. He'd reached level 9 and was fighting like hell to survive against the enemies at the end of this one mission in a library where you fight against "Pebbles" (I killed him in the beta, wasn't especially fun). Molotovs fucking everywhere and my dad repeatedly cursing. When he did barely beat the boss, he kept all his loot and put it into his stash because apparently friendly NPCs at control points don't care what kind of weapons/gear you give them (I get echoes of Fallout 4 settlers thinking about this).

My external HDD still hasn't arrived, otherwise I'd have started playing the game myself. The wait is agonizing.


edit -- dunkey playing Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Oh god, that ending is totally insane. Now I'm genuinely scared to play it myself (but that snake was fucking cool).

Dude I haven't made it out of the first level of that game yet (Sekiro). Hell the first mini-boss is destroying me.

To be honest though I've been spending most of my time on Fallout 76.

External arrived today. I didn't see it on my bed, or in the mailbox, but when I checked the front door for my cat, it was sitting there in the shipping box.

I plugged it in and immediately formatted it, and it's just now finished transferring Dragon Age: Inquisition, took about 20 minutes. I'm going to have to install/update a bunch of stuff on my external so I can have a load of games ready to go.

Going to install and get started on Division 2 after dinner. My heart's already pumping.

JMM: Toe Jam & Earl: Back in the Groove

Jeez, I remember them playing the original (one of my favorites as a kid, watched my dad beat it a single time, so fucking hard). I need to watch a playthrough of the sequel one day soon.

Also, had a fun little time using my external to install/update my other PS4 games. Only one I had an issue with was Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. I wanted to redeem the extra content code in the case, thankfully still valid, but I had to do so on Square Enix's site. I spent the time to register, but for some dumb reason I couldn't mark the game as being in my collection even though the button was lit so that I should have been able to. I go on PS Store, find a bundle pack for the very content I want (and free, no less!).

Guess what? Shit gets bizarre: I picked the pack, selected "Download," and then the option on the page changed to "Tell me more>>" and the item was marked as "No longer available." A second later I get notifications that things in the bundle are downloading and installing anyway, so now I have all the content. I have no idea what the fuck happened but I'm glad for the extra goods, and now I don't have to waste another second on SE's site (that thing is a nuisance to use).

Right now Division 2's day-one patch is almost done downloading, 20 minutes left. I won't have much time to play tonight, but I definitely want to set up my character and get a bit into the early game before leaving the real fun for the rest of the week/-end.
