Not The Batman You Know, and That's Not a Bad Thing

Reviewed by on

Maybe they're not for everyone, but I love these alternate universe takes on characters we know so well. In this one, we get a look at what would happen if Bruce Wayne had been born in Victorian England around the time of Jack The Ripper's crimes. It's very cool to get one writer's take on how that would've played out. Plus, the animation is great, as is the story in general. Check it out if you're a Batman fan, but abandon all your expectations.

Overall this is great.

Reviewed by on

This system is quite powerful. Load times are much faster compared to original ps4. Make sure you do have a tv that is compatible with 4k/hdcp/hdr for full effect. Also note that the hdr feature is not a system based feature, the game itself dictates whether or not the system will broadcast 4k. The only complaint is that if I switch between hdmi ports while the ps4 pro is still on, then go back to the ps4 pro I experience a static screen. From the research I have done this is due to hdcp broadcasting through the hdmi. Make sure to use the supplied hdmi cable. Note this does not occurs while playing the pro. Only if inputs are switched. Overall this is a great console

PS4 becomes MUCH more stable

Reviewed by on

Even though it's just a tiny bit on the expensive side, it fits and looks great together. What I really like the most is stand's built in locks. Using these locks makes them both physically attached to one another. Very simple to attach with NO sticky tape, screws or tools needed. Some of the cheaper vertical stands out there don't attach at all and that makes a vertical PS4 just as easy to tip over as without one at all. So If you decide to go vertical this is the perfect investment that fits and looks great together!

Always Test Your New Hard Drives!!!

Reviewed by on

Whenever you get a new hard drive, run a bad block scan, preferably the default 4 pass write/read test. If impatient, run for 2 passes, or control-c when its done checking the 2nd/3rd pass. Then check the S.M.A.R.T. data to see if there are any: Reallocated Sector Count*, Reallocation Count*, Current Pending Sector Count*, Uncorrectable Sector Count*, Write Error Rate, 0 to small amount of read error rate (some fields and values vary across drives and manufactures, but the sector/reallocated fields should always be 0). Once you start getting bad sectors, replace the drive ASAP.

To test the drive:

Download and boot up a Linux distro. This process will take many hours to days to complete depending on the drive speed, drive size, USB vs SATA, chipset and computer, etc.

Open a terminal (or not already at a shell), then type:

sudo badblocks -wsv -b 4096 (or 512 if its an old drive..type 'fdisk -l' to show if its 512 or 4096 sector format) /dev/sdX (X is your particular device) , example: sudo badblocks -wsv -b 4096 /dev/sda. There is an optional -c which specifics the amount of blocks at a time to process, it may or may not increase the speed. If you use it try -c 131072 or -c 65536, or -c 32768, or -c 16384. Might come in handy if testing multiple drives at once.

Try running it for 10-20 seconds with a -c [xxxxxx] or leaving it out, and ctrl-c after 20 seconds--do that for 3-4 different block speeds to determine which one progresses the furthest @ 20 seconds (or whatever interval you count to). For me, leaving the -c option out worked best.

What you are doing is exercising the drive and writing all: 00000000s, 11111111s, 10101010s, and 01010101s patterns across the entire space of the drive, and verifying that it correctly wrote every single bit that writes to the platter. Usually (not always) if a drive is bad, it will show up sooner than later, so you are giving the new drive a solid workout to determine if the drive is defective or not.

These are mid-level desktop drives with only a 2-year warranty. Mid-Level HDDs used to have a 3 year (sometimes 5) year warranty. Yeah, it's not a bad idea to get into the mindset that when you buy a new HDD, don't expect to be able to use if for a few days until after you test it! It's only your data . . .

Finally the gadget we've all been waiting for!

Reviewed by on

Finally the gadget we've all been waiting for! This is an external drive specifically designed for PS4. This works with PS4, PS4 slim, and PS4 Pro. You get a total of 2TB (1.84 TB in reality) that will help you store your games and liberate space in your console.
When I bought my PS4 slim, the first thing I did was to actually change the hard drive, from 512MB to 1TB. I used a Seagate also, and I was happy with it, BUT this is way better. Why?
First, because this is a plug a USB play device (cable IS included). No need to open your console and install nothing, no need to install drivers, software, etc. This is the easiest possible way to expand your storage.
Second, because this is cheaper than the 1TB drive I installed less than 12 months ago. For $80 you get here 2TB. I got 1TB for about $110.
Third, by downloading and storing your games on this external storage drive, you can take them with you wherever you go. So if you want to go to a friends' house and bring your games, just take this drive. AND this drive is SUPER SMALL, it really fits in your pocket. And the design is super because it comes with a blue strip (see Amazon pic) that matches the PlayStation environment.
A note on installation: when you open this box, it comes with a couple of useless paperwork (warranty, basically). You can to their website to get more info, but you really don't have to. Just plug it and follow the instructions on the screen. You mainly need to reformat the drive (see my pics). It was VERY easy to follow, and it took total about 2-3 minutes. I am including some pictures I took of my screen for you to see. Also, a final note: I noticed that games take a little bit longer to download to this drive than to the internal drive of the console. I have not done a 'scientific' test, and thus it may be my imagination, but I'd say games take about 20-30% longer to download. I don't care much because I usually have my console downloading stuff overnight while I am sleeping.
Bottom-line: BUY THIS TODAY!

Reviewed by on

This did a 5 star product! The headset alone is worth a tenner! Love the extended charger cable as the one supplied with the ps4 is far too short. Headset is far superior to the earpiece bundled with the console. Love the wrap for the controller as I am OCD and love everything to stay like New! I tried the thumb grips BUT they prevented fill movement in directions when playing shooters like Battlefield 1. Others may not have this issues and you I didn't purchase the starter pack to use them so it was an extra in my eyes. To summarize, headset is awesome, comfortable and the sound is clear. Charger cable is great and a necessity. Wrap is perfect and keeps pad like New. Thumb grips I would imagine would be great if that's something you require.

Although there have been plenty of updates to the controller since then - and plenty of potentially better designs from rival tech companies - even now, years after launch, the PS4 controller is still as appealing to the eye as it is to the hands.

I didn't know about this game (Metro Exodux) but i played metro series WHAT A GREAT GAME SERIES, To me personally, a lot of the 1st Person Shooter (FPS) games quickly lose their fun factor like COD, Battlefield, etc, Metro series has everything, action, drama from a story line, great customizable weapons, tons of enemies from human communists to nazis to scary monsters, If you liked the first two Metro games you're accustomed to how the game plays. It's one of the best looking games out there as well.
