Speedrunner finishes Sekiro blindfolded during AGDQ 2022

Published

on

While the annual marathon Awesome Games Done Quick has just ended, it’s time to look back on the highlights of this unmissable event. Organized at the start of each year, this celebration of the speed run invites several dozen streamers to finish their favorite games as quickly as possible—all for a good cause: this 2022 edition will have raised more than 3.4 million dollars (2.9 million euros) for the NGO Prevent Cancer Foundation.

But the real attraction of last week is undoubtedly the incredible performance of Mitchriz, a speedrunner who completed his blindfold Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice, the hardcore title from FromSoftware.

Blind & Furious

Mitchriz offers here a terrible lesson in humility for those who think they are the king of the pad after having cheesed a boss of Dark Souls on a Sunday afternoon with his hand in his underpants—here, the extreme speedrunner finishes sekiro, one of the toughest games in FromSoftware’s catalog, in two short hours… all that blindfolded. Just that.

It is an impressive feat based on fundamentals that are altogether logical, but nevertheless spectacular. If you can’t rely on your eyes, memory and hearing become by default the two best allies of players specializing in this kind of blind runs… And if you succeed in finishing a “normal” game under these conditions is already a great effort in itself, finishing a FromSoftware souls-like—moreover, one of the most demanding—is simply extraordinary. The perf is to be seen and reviewed (no pun intended) on the official YouTube account of the AGDQ.

This is not the only run available on the event channel: all the games of the annual marathon are thus available in replay. This beginning of 2022 was marked by the arrival of newcomers like Lost Judgment and DEATHLOOP, a very special run for dead space 2, or even the excellent We Love Katamari whose Japanese runner not only offers an impeccable technique, but also a certain mastery of English all in the fundamentals.

Sony will not let you enjoy the old games to

As part of the updated subscription service Sony PS Plus will be available, including projects for PS3. But due to the very specific architecture of the processor of this console, the games will be available in the cloud service.

Sony will not let you enjoy the old games to the fullest.  PS3 projects within PS Plus will be released without add-ons

And now it became known that such games, unfortunately, will not support add-ons. DLC may someday be added, but at first you definitely shouldn’t expect them.

For example, Asura’s Wrath, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Crash Commando, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and a number of other games received various kinds of add-ons at one time, for some projects there were a lot of such DLCs. But within the framework of PS Plus, it will not be possible to try them out. The source also publishes a list of PS3 games, but we published them a week ago, when Sony itself did this.

As a reminder, today we also learned that some classic games will work even worse on the new consoles than on the original PlayStation.

Some classic games on the PlayStation 5 will not work

Yesterday we got our first look at the classic PlayStation game available as part of the new PS Plus subscription for PlayStation 5 owners. Today, new details about such games have appeared.

Some classic games on the PlayStation 5 will not work as well as on the original console.  All because of the PAL standard

In particular, it turned out that a number of games work with a frame rate of only 50 Hz and according to the PAL standard. For example, this applies to Ape Escape. At the same time, the original game on the PlayStation worked according to the NTSC standard, which makes the gameplay feel smoother.

We know for sure that not all classic PS Plus games will work on PAL. For example, Siphon Filter and Abe’s Odyssey work according to the NTSC standard. However, unfortunately, all Sony Japan Studio games will be the same as Ape Escape.

A complete list of all the games available on PS Plus has also appeared, but for now only for the Asian region. You can get acquainted with them at this link, but in other regions the list may be slightly different.

Now the SSD in PlayStation 5 seems to be slow

It’s been literally a year and a half since the launch of the PlayStation 5, which, among other things, impressed with its ultra-fast SSD. But a lot has changed in the market in a year and a half.

Now the SSD in PlayStation 5 seems to be slow.  Apacer showed drives with speeds up to 13,000 MB / s

Apacer showcases next-generation PCIe 5.0 SSDs with read/write speeds of 13,000 and 12,000 MB/s respectively!

Recall that the Sony console has an SSD with a speed of about 7000 MB / s, that is, the new Apacer will be almost twice as fast.

The Apacer AS2280F5 drive does not stand out in any way. It has a heat sink, but overall it’s just an SSD. There is also the Zadak TWSG5 model, which is distinguished by the addition of graphene and aluminum to the cooling system.

There are no other details yet. In particular, the company does not name the controller used, but it could be the Phison E20.
