Where and how to earn the Curiosity Killed the Cat trophy

To get the Curiosity Killed the Cat trophy, you'll need to first find a paper bag, so make your way to the Slums during your adventure or use chapter selection to load up the area. There are multiple bags in this area, but for the sake of ease, we'll point you to a specific one for quick and easy completion.

Step 1: Make your way to the area with the Guardian in a red robe, who you encountered when you entered the Slums for the very first time.

Step 2: Facing him, turn left and stroll down the steps until you see the musician nearby.

Step 3: Against a pillar next to the musician is a paper bag, and when you approach it, it will display a prompt. Press the corresponding button and you'll get your head stuck, which should pop the Curiosity Killed the Cat trophy for you.

While your head is stuck in the paper bag, your controls will be inverted. Don't worry, though, as you'll soon shake the bag off and be able to resume some more feline hijinks.

Best PlayStation Plus Deals: Save on Essential, Plus and Premium
Best PS Plus deals

While the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 are excellent consoles, especially for those who don't want to invest in a gaming PC, you tend to lose out on a lot if you don't have one of Sony's online subscriptions. You see, a PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) subscription offers, is access to online multiplayer, and without it, you can't connect to online servers and play with other folks, which is a bit frustrating. Luckily, a PS Plus membership does offer some additional features, such as free games every month and access to some older PS games, all of which depend on which of the three tiers you subscribe to: Essential, Extra, and Premium. Once you grab a subscription, don't forget to check out PS5 game deals and PlayStation deals for more games and accessories.
What is PlayStation Plus?
Along with online multiplayer and other in-game network features, a PlayStation Plus Essential membership grants you access to exclusive discounts and other promotions. Perhaps the most notable benefit of PlayStation Plus is that every month, Sony gives subscribers one PlayStation 5 and two PlayStation 4 games that are free to download. You have one month to add these free PlayStation Plus games to your library.

After that, these titles are yours to keep so long as you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription. The free-to-download games are generally pretty good (they are often some of the best PS4 games that have been out for a little while), and these alone justify the cost of PS Plus even for people who don't do a lot of online gaming.

When is Stardew Valley update 1.6 coming to consoles?
Unfortunately, we don't have an immediate answer regarding when Stardew Valley update 1.6 will land on consoles, though we do know it's on the way in the near future. In a social media post on April 26, developer ConcernedApe gave a minor update on the console versions of the newest update, saying, "Console and mobile ports are still in progress, thank you again for your continued patience!"

How to turn off adaptive triggers on PS5

One of the major advancements the PlayStation 5 brought with its new DualSense controller was a new form of haptic feedback. In addition to more dynamic rumble, this included adaptive triggers that could adjust how it felt to pull the triggers to match the action on-screen. This could mean simulating resistance, or stopping the trigger short at different intervals. While novel, it isn't always great if you want to be playing at your best. The last thing you want is to struggle to fire your weapon in an online first-person shooter. Thankfully, this is an optional feature you can easily disable from your console.
