Since I got my DualSense controller back last week, I have sped through a few of the shorter games I had for PS5 :

[2] Astro's Playroom ~ PS5 ~ 14.01.21
Wow, this game is incredible. Hard to believe it's a pack in title. If you have played Rescue Mission, you know what to expect. My only complaint was that I just want more please.

[3] Maneater ~ PS5 ~ 16.01.21
This one really surprised me. It's quite pretty, quite funny and quite unique. I really enjoyed leveling up my baby shark into a wrecking ball. Good game.

[4] Dirt 5 ~ PS5 ~ 17.01.21
This one surprised me too. It's baaaad. Horrible performance, lots of crashes (not the driving kind!), probably the ugliest UI I've seen in years. The events themselves are mediocre at best. Shame, because I really enjoyed Dirt 4.

Sony sent me a controller back on Thursday, so it was exactly 17 days in total.

It's a different controller but it wasn't boxed, so I suspect it is a refurbished controller.

It does look brand new to be fair. I am thinking I will get a second controller in the future anyway.

your experience was very similar to mine. And I spoiled the other endings and they really aren't that great either. I also romanced Judy which is way better than any of the other romance options by far. Rivers is freakin awkward as hell, Panam's is just super unsatisfying, and Kerry's is okay I guess.

I romanced Panam which ended up a bit weird. Your line to initiate the cut scene is 'Oh yeah, Let's go.' Yuck!

[1] Cyberpunk 2077 ~ PS4 ~ 13.01.21

Mostly, I very much enjoyed my time with Cyberpunk. The world is amazing (if slightly overwhelming), the main story and side quests are great and the combat is varied and enjoyable.

I played on PS5 and my main problem was numerous crashes...I counted 28 in my 60 hours playtime. It was very distracting.

I also found the ending I got rather unsatisfying, but I didn't complete every single side quest, so maybe that's on me.

I'd like to give it another playthrough as a katana user....maybe when all the bugs are ironed out.

Damn! It's awesome to see how on the ball people are with this challenge this year already! I need to get my ass in gear and quit playing so much video pinball and actually beat some more games! Might actually jump into one tonight ;)

I know what you mean.

I’m fully immersed in Cyberpunk. Apart from the numerous crashes, I am really enjoying the game and not ready to move on anytime soon.

52 games may be a stretch!

I play as a good guy mostly. It’s a refreshing change from my normal life as a homicidal dictator!

Neat glad to hear you got it sorted, hoping I won't have to encounter this problem but seems like they're aware and addressing it :)

As I said, I've mostly been using my PS5 as a spruced up PS4, played Days Gone now onto Yakuza 5.

I'm holding out on Cyberpunk, I've heard it runs fine on PS5 but I have so much in my backlog I can easily wait until they sort it out and release a PS5 version. I'm the same with the PS5s version of Yakuza 7, suits be as I still have 5 & 6 to play before March.

Beyond that there really isn't anything incoming that I'm too bothered by, I am interested in Balan Wonderworld but only as a Co-op experience so might hold off on that one too.

I think I'm going to turn the haptics off when I get the Dualsense back. Whilst it was neat in Astros Playroom, the controller was shaking like mad at times, and I feel that must have contributed to the failure of the spring. I generally turn rumble off anyway when I play games.

You're doing the right thing waiting for the PS5 version of Cyberpunk...I am weak when it comes to FOMO  ;D

So having waited for 1hr 38 mins in a queue, I finally got through to Sony customer support.

They were very helpful. They originally questioned me pretty hard but eventually the guy admitted that they had a lot of calls about this particular R2 trigger resistance problem.

I noticed a couple of articles on the issue have now appeared in my gaming news feeds.

They sent me prepaid postage labels and I've sent the controller off. He quoted me 15 days to either get a replacement or for it to be fixed.

Not too bad.

Me and Mrs Cosmos are half way through Season 4 of Vikings on Amazon.

I have absolutely loved this show so far...perfect blend of violence, politics and the odd naked person.

Sorry to hear about your controller issues - I was very unsure about the triggers for the Dualsense until I played the Astrobot Playroom. Still while it is built for that I found it was really irritating on Fortnite. I hope it won't be a case that some games it works wonders and others its a pain in the behind.

As for PS4 games, most seem to work on the system - I haven't had any issues with any yet anyways and it's a good time to find many for a cheap price so not a bad idea. Since I've had the PS5 All I've really played is online games and Days Gone from the PS+ Collection Bundle - If you haven't looked into them already I highly recommend it as it has some of the best PS4 titles ready to download.

Thanks for the advice...the PS+ Collection looks pretty good.

I actually caved in and ordered Cyberpunk 2077. I was originally intending to wait for the PS5 version, but curiosity has the better of me and it should last me a decent time while my Dualsense is getting repaired.

Nice trophy collection btw...I'll be doing a bit of casual trophy hunting......just need to think of a decent psn name with Cosmos in it  :-\

I was the very happy new owner of a PS5 on Christmas Day.

Played Astro’s Playroom...fantastic.

Got 5 hours into Valhalla and the controller broke! It’s the R2 trigger, there is no resistance in it and you can literally blow on it for it to register an input! Makes most games unplayable.

I’ve done a bit of googling, and it seems alarmingly  common. Apparently the spring has either come loose while the haptics were going nuts in Astros or it may have snapped altogether. Very frustrating but apparently Sony will fix it. Unfortunately this can take weeks!  :'(

I have a DS4 controller that I kept for PC, so all is not lost as I believe this will allow me to play PS4 games during January. I just need to buy some new PS4 games now!
