@kyleforrester87 I have two cats. They both send their best wishes. Buster looks like one seriously cool dude

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@kyleforrester87 Am crossing my fingers tightly for Screen Print (my favourite of the possible names you mentioned) and hope everything will work out alright.

@Tasuki @Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy @mookysam @Th3solution @Ralizah @JohnnyShoulder @Thrillho @Rudy_Manchego @DonJorginho @Gremio108 @RogerRoger @Arugula thanks everyone! I don’t tend to get worked up but my kitties really get me fired.

Buster Blast: following sedation they had a good look in his mouth and it appears the lumps are ulcers, most likely linked to his failing kidneys which are now the primary issue. Considering this it isn’t worth doing a biopsy. He briefly showed me the numbers, I didn’t really understand what I was seeing but he has 50x as much of something in his blood than he should have, so that isn’t good! He’s at the vets for the next 3 days on a drip, they are going to clear him out and then do more blood tests to see if they can get him down to reasonable levels. Afterwards if it looks okay he’ll come home and be on a new diet. They’ll test the blood again after a week or so and if his kidneys aren’t destroyed and the toxin levels haven’t rocketed back up we can hope he’ll live for potentially years with a manageable disease. That’s best case, the vet is still sounding pretty negative but his chances are 50/50 in my opinion*, so I am happier today.

*disclaimer: I am not a vet 😬😂

@kyleforrester87 Vets (and all medical professionals) always make everything sound worse than it is, so that nobody can turn around and sue them for saying "should work out fine" days before a random, totally unpredictable complication pops up.

In other words, try not to dwell on any note of professional pessimism. Here's to the treatment working like a charm, and I hope you'll have him back home soon!

@RogerRoger yeah, I was thinking today that I do the same in my own line of work.. it’s self preservation at the end of the day. It’s difficult being on the other end of it, though. But he’s young and feisty, so has a good shot.

@kyleforrester87 Oh, absolutely. When it's happening to you, it's a totally different story. Will keep my fingers crossed (toes whilst typing, naturally) but I'm sure a good shot is all he'll need to pull through.

Am going to do a Cyberpunk 2077 Themed Giveaway where I will give out 1 perhaps 2 codes to get the game from the PS Store.

Any ways how I could go about setting this up?

I wonder if Sony will be at E3 this year.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

@Th3solution God knows, haven't seen any articles about E3 on here either which is really weird.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

How would you guys react if Cyberpunk 2077 was made a Next Gen and PC only title?

I for the life me cannot see how it will run on the under-powered base consoles.

DonJorginho

KALofKRYPTON

@DonJorginho I'm not planning on getting it, but I suppose I'd be a little miffed if that was announced at this point.
Given the pretty much required scaleability of software for PC and the parallels of base consoles with PC architecture these days, there really shouldn't be an issue getting it to run if enough time is devoted to it.

@DonJorginho Lol. As unlikely as that is I'd be pissed for a few days, moan about it, turn my focus to other PS games and get on with my life.

Edit. Wait, I thought you were asking if it became PC only. Yeah, that would be a bummer. Anyway, if it was PS5 and no longer a PS4 game I wouldn't care at all, not in the slightest.

@KALofKRYPTON @Arugula I wouldn't care for the game not being on PS4 as I am getting the PS5 on launch regardless but would feel sorry for those who wanted it on PS4.

I am just saying this as it is clear there are some big issues on base consoles as the game barely has ran above 30fps on powerful PCs when demos were shown so how this can run on PS4 OG and XB1 without loading screens is beyond me and will be a technical marvel if they manage to get it all working.

This is all considering the fact TW3 launched with terrible issues frame rate rise and plenty of bugs and that was a less demanding game that had delays for polish too.

@DonJorginho I think the heavier narrative element, first person view and urban environment are going to be much easier to deal with graphically.

@DonJorginho Considering they got Witcher 3 working so well on Switch they're clearly a technically talented bunch.

As an early or day 1 adopter of next gen I always promise to myself games that get a crossover release I always buy on the latest machine so I wouldn't notice it anyway. Double dipping is for folk both cash and perhaps more importantly time rich.

Arugula

DonJorginho

@KALofKRYPTON I can see that but the verticality of the world, the pure graphical enhancements and the more open possibilities could be harder for the consoles to take imo

DonJorginho

DonJorginho

@Arugula Part of me is hoping that due to the BC nature of next gen it is a simple patch to get it running amazingly on PS5 but I think CD may go for selling it repackaged with some small additional content to make the most of the new IP.
