The list of PS4 games that don’t work on PS5 just got shorter

A few days ago, Sony revealed that 99 percent of PS4 games will be compatible with the PS5 and that there are very few titles you can’t play on the upcoming console. Now, the list of 10 just got shorter. NACON and KT Racing told Push Square that they’re developing a patch that would make TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2 PS5-compatible. A NACON rep told the publication that the developers are working to make the motorbike racing game 100 percent functional on the new console, though it’s unclear if they’ll be able to roll out the update by the time the PS5 comes out on November 12th.

TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2

Ride on the Edge 2 isn’t the only game in the original list that will receive a compatibility update, though: As GamesRadar+ noted, you’ll also be able to play high-speed shooter DWVR on the PS5. A developer for the game recently announced on Reddit that Mad Triangles is working on a patch and that they’re hoping to release it before the PS5 arrives.

The companies’ announcement opens up the possibility that the other titles will also be playable on Sony’s next-gen console. While the short list could dwindle even further, there’s one game that will never get an update: Shadwen. Its developer told Push Square that the stealth game’s loading screen freezes up on the PS5, and since it uses an older engine, the company can’t work on on a patch anymore.

Daily Meal ranked this Alabama hamburger on its list of ‘The 101 Best Burgers in America’

Dining and travel website The Daily Meal has released a list of the 101 Best Burgers in America, and the Hamburger Fonfon from Birmingham’s Chez Fonfon ranks number 32.

To make the list of the country’s most bodacious burgers, staff at The Daily Meal focused on small establishments and local favorites, compiling notes from internal expertise, review sites including Yelp, reader suggestions, and coverage from local journalists.

Here’s what The Daily Meal had to say about the Hamburger Fonfon:

“Chez Fonfon might be located in Birmingham, Alabama, but the cuisine will make you feel as if you’ve been transported to Paris, France. The highly recommended Hamburger Fonfon is cooked medium and comes with comté — a cheese — and pommes frites.”

While The Daily Meal ranked multiple burgers from some states for this year’s list– the website ranked three burgers from Georgia and Louisiana, as well as four from South Carolina– the Hamburger Fonfon was the only burger from Alabama to make the list.

It was also the only burger from Alabama on its 2017 and 2015 best burgers in America lists. And this past summer, the site ranked the Hamburger FonFon the best burger in Alabama.

While we hope The Daily Meal eventually expands its horizons to make room for other great Alabama burgers on its annual list, its no secret the highly celebrated burger from chef Frank Stitt’s casual French bistro is a guest favorite.

To build the iconic burger, the Chez Fonfon staff starts with grass-fed Heritage Beef whole chuck shoulder from Joyce Farms in Winston-Salem, N.C., which the chefs trim and grind in-house. In June, Frank Stitt and Adam Grusin, the culinary director for the Stitt Restaurant Group, detailed the two-day process to AL.com’s Bob Carlton:

We’ve got bonafide classics like Home Alone, Disney-blessed “seasonal gifts” like Frozen, and, um, The Hunger Games franchise. What do you think Peeta got Katniss for Christmas? A new bow? I’ll take my answer off the air.

Check out Freeform’s full “Kickoff to Christmas” programming block, beginning on November 1, below. And for some more, um, “seasonally appropriate” programming, here’s our favorite Halloween movies of all time.
