Destruction of AllStars is a colorful, vibrant Derby style destruction game, and it can be fun to share chaotic online games like this one with friends and rivals. There’s only one problem with the new PlayStation 5 title, and it’s that gamers are getting a little too much chatter from other gamers through an unlikely source: their controller.
Currently the game is set up to voice chat the entire lobby with all other players. Destruction of AllStars Also uses the PlayStation 5 controller as the headset and the microphone as the default. Players can mute themselves, but this is not a permanent setting and each game must be replayed.
Anyone who spends a lot of time in online games knows why this is a bad idea. Some players are loud or rude, but hearing them all at once on the controller is a little more uncomfortable. It turns the periphery into a nightmare portal and throws a cursed ear into every other player’s living room. No thanks! That’s not good at all!
Right now, the best way to avoid this overwhelming experience is by pressing the PlayStation button in a lobby. Then scroll to the voice chat activity card and press the square button. This has to be repeated for each game, but the alternative seems much worse. On the other hand, this is a game about a destruction derby. Perhaps this is a high profile way to add some level of uncertainty and chaos to the player.
