We’ve been enjoying Remedy’s newest multiplatform game Control since it was released over a month ago. Yesterday, Control received an all-new free game patch which adds the much requested Photo Mode to the game. The patch should be out for all of the game’s platforms by the time you read this.

We are happy to reveal Remedy has announced more content for the game is coming. Here’s the full roadmap of upcoming content for the game. We can expect a free new game mode called “expeditions” in December and two new paid DLC missions are scheduled for 2020z

Control is out now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Don’t Buy 4TB Internal Hard Drives for PS4 Yet October 16, 2019

Posted by Maniac in Editorials.

I currently use a 2TB PS4 Pro and the internal drive has very nearly finished filling up with my games and DLC. For those of you who know me, you know what that means. Yes, I wanted to crack my PS4 open and upgrade it once again. The PS4 uses a pretty standard internal hard drive specification (2.5″ internal SATA) that can be upgraded with current off the shelf hard drives made for laptops. However, when I started looking at the technical specifications of current 4TB drives I assumed would fit the PS4’s form factor I received nothing but warnings not to use those 4TB drives inside a PS4.

The important thing to know as to why you shouldn’t currently buy a 4TB drive for a PS4 when it should work in theory. It has to do with the physical size of the drive. While 4TB drives exist they currently achieve this by being at a thickness of 15mm. The Hard Drive compartment of a PS4 or PS4 Pro currently maxes out at 9.5mm. In short, the 4TB drives physically can’t fit, they’re too thick!

So until Seagate or Western Digital finally manufactures a 4TB 2.5″ SATA drive that is 9.5mm thick, I’m going to leave this warning up here for anyone looking for this information to find.

I guess we’ll either have to delete my content or use an external drive for the time being.

Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 Delayed October 16, 2019

I’ve been looking forward to playing a sequel to the original Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines since the end of 2004. Now it looks like I will be waiting just a bit longer. It is my sad duty to inform you all that Paradox Interactive has delayed their upcoming sequel past their previous release date of Q1 2020.

You can read their official word on the delay here. I have to say I’m okay with this delay as the world Paradox is creating (based on the early previews) is huge with a branching interconnected story. Polishing and testing a world that complex takes time. Of course those of us who have played the original Bloodlines will be the first to say how they wished that game had received several more months of play testing before that game was released. I’m hopeful the sequel will improve on the original.

Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 is coming later in 2020 to PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Nintendo has released a very minor system software update, version 9.0.1, for the Nintendo Switch that addresses unspecific bugs. The new update is not currently required to access Nintendo Network but it’s only a matter of time before it becomes required.

I recommend updating your Joy Con controllers’ firmware following the software update to improve performance. You can thankfully do that without having to leave the controller docked in the Switch tablet.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game, a video game written and starring the original Ghostbusters cast that continued the story past the second film, is considered by many to be the third GB film. Having played it myself upon its original release I can confirm I share those feelings.

Some time ago, Sony announced their plans to rerelease the original game remastered for modern game consoles. Now, it looks like that game is ready to launch. Here’s the original launch trailer.

This will have to hold us over until Jason Reitman’s film comes out.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game is out now on PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PS4.
