@render that's as far as I got, importing my save and got mauled by Mongols, to be continued soon for sure though. I picked up both The Stick of Truth and The Fractured but Whole in the recent sale in a double pack for under £15, it may still be on if your interested in some turn based fun with the good old south park humour.

@render The new armour is from one of the two mythic quests. Both well worth doing!

As for armour;

Travellers for exploring
Sakai (or the new one) for combat
Ghost for sneaking

That said, I’ve recently been using the fundoshi more for sneaking as it makes me laugh and the fact you make no sound when running is quite handy.

@render And yes, I also find it annoying that there’s no way of selecting favourite sets to quickly flick between. At least they introduced loadouts for your charms!

@MightyDemon82 That sounds like my first experience back. Loaded it straight up and was in the middle of a mogul camp. Thanks "past me" for not thinking about this sort of situation.

@Thrillho I'll definitely be doing everything available on Iki so will hopefully be picking that up soon. Made me laugh about the fundoshi, that's one brave choice 🤣

@render The fundoshi works well with the mask I unlocked on the island.

@Thrillho That's hilarious. I'm pretty sure that if someone were to approach me dressed like that I would turn and run the other way 😂

I encountered a curious bug in Ghost of Tsushima DC. Whenever I’d push the left stick forward, Jin would only walk slowly and not jog. Pushing it diagonally for a second would allow him to speed up to the expected pace. Switching controllers didn’t fix it, restarting the game did.

I am now thinking this is controller related. It's weird that switching to the other controller doesn't fix it but it only seems to be happening when using one of them (the same one that exhibited some minor drift before) and it now happens consistently a few minutes into the game :/
The controller seems fine otherwise though, so I'm really not sure how it could be causing it.

edit: I used the reset button on the controller and played for a while and the problem seems to be gone... Still don't know if it was actually the controller causing it. I'm very confused and don't know what's real anymore

Are you sure you’re not actually replaying Returnal? 😜

@Voltan My other controller that I haven't had replaced is now showing signs of issues. On Hades I'm getting some odd changes of direction all of a sudden and sometimes some flickering. It only seems to happen a while into playing so I might try the reset on that one to see if it sorts it. Doesn't seem to happen in GoT though so it's definitely game dependent.

@render So I googled the problem and turnes out some people have been experiencing the exact same thing with the PS4 version last year, even with brand new controllers. Weird but at least it doesn't sound like my controller is fubar

edit: There's an option in the controller settings called "stick drift compensation" and it fixes the problem.
So it looks like maybe the stick indeed has some drift but it's within the deadzone, because it doesn't cause any movement on its own. This is the only game that it had any effect on (other than that one time when it actually exhibited a little drift for a short while). Not sure if I should be doing anything about it.

@Voltan That's great to hear, at least there's a way to correct it. Is that setting in the systems controller setting or is it game specific? The worst thing about the problem I've got with the controller that I didn't have replaced is that it suddenly takes a lurch and can really put you off your stride. I was doing the last boss battle in Hades the other day and it happened several times and put me right into danger.

@render It’s in the game’s settings. And that’s exactly what was happening to me that one day but then it stopped.

Voltan

render

@Voltan Will give that a go. Shame it's not in the system settings as then it could apply to all games.

render

Voltan

@render Thing is, this problem is specific to Ghost somehow and it affected players that didn't experience any drift otherwise.

@Voltan @render I noticed that "stick drift compensation" setting in Ghost of Tsushima and thought it a very telling inclusion, particularly considering that it's a first-party Sony game.

@RogerRoger Apparently it's been there since the original PS4 release but I didn't have the need to use it with any of the PS4 controllers. Somehow this game handels deadzones differently, I guess?

Voltan

RogerRoger

@Voltan Oh, has it been? Then I withdraw the underlying snark of my previous reply; it must be something specific to the way Ghost of Tsushima works, and not a tacit acknowledgement of a manufacturing shortcut. Must be a deadzone thing, yeah. Perhaps at one point, the game was gonna use the analogue sticks for sword-swinging, like in MGS2: Sons of Liberty and the Skyward Sword remaster? Because then any amount of drift would've rendered the game unplayable.

@RogerRoger I googled - it wasn't there at launch but they added it in August last year - roughly a month after release. I believe I was done with the game by then.

@Voltan Interesting; must've been patched in to address a specific issue, then. Thanks for investigating!
