Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

A 4X strategy game in space. Sounds like a perfect match, right?

Oh boy, a new Tales Of game? Gosh, I hope it will be a high-fantasy anime-styled JRPG... that would be so unique.

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

After 6 years I finally got that blinking red light error. Apparently, my 60gb version is prone to this. I had a scare about 4 years ago with the hard drive but was able to replace it. Of course this happens a few days before gta v. I ordered the GTA V bundle so at least thats a decent deal.

Anybody have any experience with that flashing red light error? Does anyone know of a way to fix it? I'm still buying a new one but maybe if I can fix it I can give it to my brother.

Not much, usually when it dies, it dies. Condolences.

Red light can mean many things, from overheating to the power supply.
Either way, easier fixes than YLOD. My 60gb already had the drive replaced so the only thing i have to look out for is it getting hot or the PSU dying.

To be on the safe side, order yourself a new PSU ($20-25) and while you're in there, give it a damn good clean and make sure the fans are working properly.

That is, providing it is just a red light. If the yellow light comes on before red, it's fucked.
