Miles Morales PS4 Saves Will Work On PS5

Published

on

Spider-Man: Miles Morales players can transfer their save data from PlayStation 4 to PS5; developer Insomniac says it will share more details later.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is being released simultaneously on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, and players will be able to bring their current-gen saves to the next generation. Earlier this month, Sony revealed that some of its biggest announced PS5 games – Spider-Man: Miles Morales included – will also be coming to PS4 and getting free next-gen upgrades.

Not a lot has been explicitly revealed about Spider-Man: Miles Morales yet, but fans should already have a pretty good idea of what to expect. The game is a direct follow-up to the 2018 PS4 hit Marvel’s Spider-Man and will share a lot of similarities. The two titles have so much in common that when Spider-Man: Miles Morales was announced, it wasn’t initially clear if it was even its own game or DLC for Marvel’s Spider-Man. While it’s long since been confirmed as a standalone game, it seems like its gameplay will borrow heavily from its predecessor, but starring a new hero with his own unique powers.

Now, it’s been confirmed that players who start their adventure in Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS4 and later want to swing over to the next-gen version can bring their saves with them, which won’t be possible with the Marvel’s Spider-Man remaster. Developer Insomniac Games said today on Twitter that PS4 saves can be transferred to PS5, adding that the studio will “share details closer to launch.” It’s not clear whether current and next-gen versions of Spider-Man: Miles Morales can freely share save files, enabling true cross-progression, but players will at least be able to make the switch from PS4 to PS5 once.

That’s good news for fans who aren’t able to secure a PS5 at launch this year, which sounds like it will be quite a lot of people. The launch of PS5 pre-orders has been something of a disaster, with plenty of players who wanted to buy a next-gen console looking like they’ll be left without one on launch day. Traffic from PlayStation fans crashed retailers’ websites when pre-orders first became available, and since then, successful pre-orders have been cancelled or pushed back to a 2021 delivery estimate due to low console stock. Now, those who weren’t lucky enough to get a PS5 know that they can at least start Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS4 and upgrade to PS5 later without it costing them more or forcing them to start the game over.

As a flagship next-gen title, it seems like Spider-Man: Miles Morales is getting the star treatment from Sony. While it’s too soon to know for sure, it makes sense that Spider-Man: Miles Morales could serve as a technical showcase for the PS5, making Sony invested in turning it into the best experience possible for early adopters and latecomers alike.

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Season 6, Episode 3 ‘Alaska’ Recap: The Things We Do For Love

Published

on

By

Oh, how the plot thickens for Fear the Walking Dead season 6. We’re three episodes deep, and it looks like we are all here to stay.

It’s nice to look forward to the show every Sunday again. It’s nice to see great writing and sensible direction guide the show as it did before. And it’s definitely nice to ease into this new format with stories like this keeping us engaged throughout the episode. What a time to be a fan again, am I right?

Again, before we proceed with everything that went down on Fear the Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 3, a fair warning: this is a SPOILER-HEAVY review, so read at your own risk.

Fear the Walking Dead 6X02 Recap

If there’s one odd addition to tonight’s episode, it’s the opening scene with Morgan. So let’s get that out of the way first.

“I’ve been sixteen different somebodies since it all ended,” Morgan says, partnered with a symbolic montage of him forging Emile’s ax and his staff together. “I’m scared, Rachel. Scared, I’m not gonna be the man they knew.”

Ummm… okay. It’s a nice look into how Morgan’s current character came to be, so I guess it’s still necessary, so people don’t forget that he’s the new Rick of Fear the Walking Dead.

No Plague Can Stop Al from Getting With “Beer Lady”

Al and Dwight’s adventures begin with an excursion into a funeral home-turned-camp-turned-Walker-territory. Virginia’s tasked them to figure out what happened to places overrun by Walkers so that they, in turn, could learn how to prevent that from happening in their camps and territories. To make the job a little more interesting, Al and Dwight engage in a fun game of guessing where the Walkers they kill come from by looking at their driver’s licenses. Oh, and they’ve got GoPros on them, too. I think it’s Ginny’s way of fucking with them, “so, you like taking videos, huh? Then take one for me.”

As they split up to clear out the area, Al gets radio chatter from a search party called Ground 17, who’s bound to refuel at a certain drop site Baker. Eventually, we figure out that Ground 17 is Isabelle, you know, the helicopter pilot who crashed in season 5 and who Al developed romantic feelings for but couldn’t reciprocate because she’s part of the helicopter people (which we also now know as the Civic Republic, thanks to The Walking Dead: World Beyond)?

It’s crazy how it all slowly connects to Rick, and I can’t wait to see all three shows converge in the Rick Grimes movies (however long it might take to film).

That night, Al and Dwight arrive at drop site Baker—a multi-story office complex somewhere in the city. They are greeted by a dismembered Walker lying around, which also happens to be a guy from Alaska, something Dwight has wanted to find in their weird game of “Family Feud: Zombie Edition.”

But the office complex has a catch, though. It’s populated by a small group of survivors who are slowly succumbing to the Bubonic Plague. Yep, the building’s filled with rats. The group is led by Nora, who initially thinks of them as hostile, but eventually asks for their help upon finding out about their investigative job in the GoPro footage. Al refuses, however, because she’s seen the plague take effect before, and with no antibiotic in sight, these people are done for. She pulls Dwight aside, and they begin their slow ascent to the helipad up top.

Nora did say that she had a former colleague who went up to meet the helicopter people on the rooftop, only to get shot. So the question is whether or not Isabelle will do the same to Al and Dwight when she sees them waiting. Again, love is a drug that makes you do risky shit, so Al still insists on meeting her—kill or be killed in the process.

Getting on top of the building proved more challenging for the duo, though. They might’ve found a shortcut in the building’s piping system, but it’s still infested with rats, eventually infecting Dwight. But just when all hope is lost, Nora decides to step in and help. They’re good people, after all.

But now Al has a tricky ball in her hands—will she push through with meeting Isabelle, the love of her life, or will she stay and try to find meds for Dwight and Nora’s group?

It all comes to a head when the trio clears out one more floor before the rooftop access door. Nora breaks down at the sight of all the people she lost. Dwight pushes Al to finish what they started while he looks for meds. What a tricky sight we’ve got, boys!

Tearful Goodbyes and a Shocking Reunion

But little does Al know that the supplies intended for Isabelle lying on the rooftop has enough antibiotics to treat everyone infected with the plague—how convenient!

Al returns to Dwight (who admits that she couldn’t bear losing another brother) and distributes the meds to everyone infected by the plague. With the office complex uninhabitable, our duo helps everyone find a new place to live. As they leave, though, Al notices that the plague must’ve been brought there on purpose. When they first entered the building, the same “The End is the Beginning” line was sprayed on the wall, and Al discovered a fresh can of spraypaint lying on the floor.

Whoever these pieces of shit might be, they could prove to be a worthy foe to the Pioneers—that is if Virginia sees them as a threat.

The episode ends with daylight catching up to them and a random voice piping into Al’s radio. “I saw your signal flare, is someone in trouble on the roof?” the voice says, much to Dwight’s shock. He knows that voice. In fact, he’s married to that voice! He runs outside and sees Sherry, in the flesh, waiting for that sweet hug he’s been wanting to give for a long time.

‘Fear the Walking Dead: Alaska’ Overall Verdict

We need more Al & Dwight in our lives right now. We could all use a good friend once in a while.

Fear the Walking Dead continues Sunday, November 1st, with “The Key” at 9/8c on AMC.

’60 Minutes’ Airs Controversial Trump Interview – With Fact-Checks

Published

on

By

Lesley Stahl told President Trump up front: “You know, this is ’60 Minutes.’ And we can’t put on things we can’t verify.” On Sunday night, the show remained true to its word.

The venerable CBS newsmagazine aired significant portions of the interview it conducted with President Trump earlier this week, even though the White House broke an agreement that a tape it made of the proceedings would only be used for archival material. In Trump’s exchange with Stahl, he attempts to offer a rosier-than-accurate view of how the nation is grappling with coronavirus, attempts to pass along debunked reports about the business activities of his Democratic challenger’s son, and spars with the interviewer over the nature of her questions.

In the end, Trump cuts the interview, short, telling Stahl “you brought up a lot of subjects that were inappropriately brought up,” prompting Stahl to respond, ” Well, I said, I’m going to ask you tough questions.”

The interview was conducted as part of a “60 Minutes” election-year tradition: interviewing the Republican and Democratic contenders for the office of President and Vice-President. Indeed, part of Sunday’s “60 Minutes” broadcast is devoted to an exchange between Norah O’Donnell and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

The program used Stahl’s in-conversation responses, narration and clips of Trump from rallies to vet his statements. “We had prepared to talk about the many issues and questions facing the President, but in what has become an all-too-public dust-up, the conversation was cut short,” says Stahl, in narration that accompanies the piece. “It began politely, but ended regrettably, contentiously.”

In the segment, Stahl also sheds light on pictures released earlier his week of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany handing her a giant tome, which is said to contain the plan President Trump wants to use to replace Obamacare. “It was heavy, filled with executive orders, congressional initiatives,” Stahl tells viewers. “But no comprehensive health plan.”

Biden and Harris, meanwhile, respond to hard questions from O”Donnell without much complaint, though they do deflect on occasion. During the course of that interview, O’Donnell asks Biden and Harris about whether Harris can support Biden initiatives with which she previously disagreed; Biden’s mental acuity; their view of the U..S. court system; and Biden’s view on funding for police. Biden and Harris never insult the interviewer or tell her they’ve had enough of her questions.

Welp, A Richmond Player May Have Been Handed A Very Sneaky Bag On Live TV Post-Grand Final

Published

on

By

At the tail end of a weird AFL season contained within an even weirder year, it’s to be expected that post-Grand Final celebrations for Richmond would be a little bit out of the norm; what with the game being in Brisbane and all. But even still, this is ah… certainly a first.

Footage from the live broadcast of Saturday’s Grand Final appears to show a Richmond player, mid-lap of honour, accepting a very cheeky bag of something from a rather generous fan.

The incident occurred during the Tigers’ post-game celebrations, in the background of an otherwise nondescript Channel Seven interview with Jack Riewoldt.

Richmond defender Jayden Short, who finished runner-up in Norm Smith Medal voting, is seen approaching the fence and talking to an unidentified man. The footage quite clearly shows the man handing a tiny bag to Short, who then tucks it away in his sock and continues on his merry way.

Sneaky packet transfer, who would be watchin!? all good.

Now, of course, there’s no real suggestion at this stage that this is anything untoward. It could be perfectly normal! An ordinary thing! Who among us has not been handed a completely legal substance in a tiny bag by a random stranger before.

Regardless, Richmond celebrations have been on-going since Saturday night, following the club’s barnstorming 31-point win over Geelong to secure their third AFL Premiership in four years.

All this said, it’s hard to see anything topping Dustin Martin‘s efforts after last year’s Grand Final, which saw him go on such a monumentally big one that his car remained parked underneath the MCG for at least 14 days following the game. And then he casually showed up in the Maldives in Serena Williams‘ Instagram stories somehow.

Simpler times, a different world.

Still, a tiny bag and the boundless possibilities that Brisbane and the Gold Coast have to offer? This year’s brouhaha is certainly off to a flying start.
