Re: The Official PS5 thread!

I couldn't possibly care less what the fucking console looks like, it's a machine to play games that I stuff in a shelf; it's not a designer outfit. As much as it pains me to post this for the resident troll to latch onto, I'm less than amused with Sony. They explicitly stated that exactly what happ...

I don't know what reviews you've read, but the reviews I've read that have been critical of the game haven't seemed to be written by people that "hate" the genre, but who think it's been beat to death at this point.

It was a decent show but I'm not sure it was Emmy worthy. Unless there is an award for most confusing unexplained timeline.

Perhaps Watchmen had a category or two they could have tossed to their Witcher.
