    What we thinking of Oddworld then? I'm finding it a little bit too stuck in the past for my tastes. Worrying your character isn't going to cling to the right platform or drop down from a ledge away from danger correctly in time isn't something I think I should be panicking about in 2021.

    Some very poor frame drops during set piecey bits too. Not the worst game I've ever played but I was expecting a bit of a more modern twist on the formula.

    That's disappointing to here. I didn't really gel with New n Tasty to be honest. i found it overly bright and lacking that special feeling i had when i played Oddworld when i was a kid. With the upcoming date for the new game i decided to go back through the original Oddworld and it still holds up in my opinion with the dark moody atmosphere.

    I know Soulstorm is meant to be a re imaging of Exodus isn't it?

    I never got round to playing Strangers wrath or Munch. So i just grabbed them on steam!

    I'm not much on the lore but I think it's supposed to be a reimagining of Exoddus yeah.

    It's not terrible but for a game that requires a bit of precision and quick thinking to get through encounters unscathed it feels clunky as fuck, which might have washed 25 years ago but now it just feels lame.

    He ignores half the forum regulars.

    Essentially he gets upset regularly and people poke him when he does. Then he ignores us.

    PS5 coil whine is the latest ongoing saga.

    He walks into threads hitting people over the head with a sign that says "POKE ME POKE ME POKE ME" and when people poke him he simultaneously expresses outrage and spunks in his pants.

    Anyway, how about that PS5 eh.

    Does anyone know why I get an error telling me to free 13.6 GB on the *console* storage while trying to download a 25 GB PS4 game to my 4 TB external hard drive (the storage setting is set to install all PS4 games to the external hard drive, by the way)?

    The weird thing is that if I select the Manage Storage option then it takes me to the external storage which already has 187 GB free!!! Why does it need 210 GB for a 25 GB game? The message tells me to free space on the console storage (internal SSD), which does only have 15 GB free, but why does it need space on there when I am downloading it to the external drive???

    This seems to be a bug that started with the last firmware update (which incidentally did not fix the annoying bug where deleted PS4 games leave an unremovable generic grey icon to the right of the PS Store on the dashboard). These bugs on the PS5 are really starting to annoy me and Sony aren't exactly rolling out constant updates to address them.

    @Darren it must download to the internal first and then copy over to the external drive. I had the same problem trying to download The Division 2.

    Oddworld Soulstorm is a bit dull isnít it? In fact itís a series that continues to baffle me why so many like it. Itís just really crap platforming, with boring puzzles. Thatís my review. (Iíd be shit at reviews)

    @markytonline83 That seems like a perfectly serviceable and succinct review.

    The aesthetics always put me off. It doesnít look fun, intriguing, atmospheric or interesting.

    That is essentially what I thought about it on PS1. (Although I did like the presentation and quirky tone back then but never as much as everyone else).

    Think it basically lives off being an early PS1 hit. I'm trying to like it but it's intentional old school clunkiness is making a few sections a thoroughly miserable chore already, and I'm only on the 4th level.

    Nah, it lives off of the aesthetic and lore. Itís like Dark Crystal - itís all about the world building and art, but the actual experience isnít anything to shout about.

    Wow! That really is a stupid design oversight, isnít it, given the PS5ís measly amount of internal storage and the fact that it did not work that way on the PS4/PS4 Pro? So not only do I have to constantly uninstall PS5 games to make space on the internal SSD for newer PS5 games but I also have to delete them for PS4 games as well installed to an external drive that has plenty of storage space! Wonder what genius thought that was a good idea?

    Sony do a lot of stuff right but this kind of stuff really does irk me along with the still locked out internal SSD expansion and the continued lack of support for VRR and ALLM. At least Microsoft know how to do this sort of thing properly...

    Itís alright, pretty much how I felt about previous oddworld games.. It almost got Itís hooks in me but I turned it off after the first level, one for fans only I think.

    Still thoroughly enjoying Sackboy, thatís far better.

    Hmmm... I've never played an Oddworld game and have always thought they looked a bit crap, so might not even bother downloading this then.

    The original irritated me and everyone raving about it irritated me even more.

    Never understood the appeal of the series personally. They were OK at best back in the day and seem to just be the exact same formula now.

    I gave it a fairly quick go last night, I think I did 2 or 3 levels. I quite enjoyed it. I feel like the platforming works well, it is a more deliberate style but the double jump makes it fairly forgiving. There are loads of checkpoints so trial and error is ok.

    The sections where you absolutely must try to sneak around and/or hit dudes with the flammable goo are probably the least enjoyable. Possessing the waspy gun guys and running them into bombs remains fun.

    Overall I quite like it so far but not sure how much staying power it will have.

    I can't think of anything I dislike more in video games than poorly implemented stealth sections.

    I'll see your poorly implemented stealth sections and raise you some poorly implemented platform sections. What a chore it feels just getting around.
