Playstation 5 Catch-All

I need to know more about the Stellar Blade jiggle physics... for research purposes.

The combat and music look great and this is another game to add for my reasons to pick up a PS5. Hoping they come down in price on Nov/Dec.

You should be able to get a PS5 Pro early next year for a massively discounted price after nobody buys them.

There is for sure a management aspect, but honestly its "upgrade whatever you can upgrade", there are certain events that favor certain dishes, so you have to select those, and then its basically playing a game of Tapper for a few minutes.

I'd say the management is almost the same as min/maxing your inventory in an ARPG. Figure out how to get the biggest numbers with whatever resources you have. Its more than zero, but there isn't a "restaurant simulator" on top of the actual diving loop.

That’s encouraging. Thanks. I’m happy to do a bit of management if it doesn’t really matter how well I do it. Other than that aspect the game really appeals.

The sushi restaurant is how you make money in the game. To oversimplify the loop, the diving part is the looting part. To upgrade your diving gear need to sell what you loot.. the Sushi Restaurant is the mechanism to sell your loot.

Not to dissuade you from the game or to spoil it, but if you are really turned off on the management side of this, there are some very light farming aspects as well. So while each of these management tasks on their own are super light, in total, they may add up to more than you were expecting.

Thanks. At least I can give it a go for free and if it doesn’t grab me I can walk away without feeling guilty.

The demo for Stellar Blade is available. I saw the positive feedback online and gave it a try and now I've preordered after finishing the included level and Boss Challenge.

Thanks for the heads up

After finishing Dragon's Dogma 2, I picked up Rise of the Ronin today. I dig it so far. The first boss was quite challenging, but I could have dropped down the difficulty if I needed to. I'm now past the prologue and in an open world doing samurai stuff.

And petting cats.
