    Any word on an upgrade for the PC version?

    Jaz, the fact you found the campaign underwhelming puts the nail in the coffin for me for the time being.

    I tried a bunch of the multiplayer over the weekend in the beta, and it really just wasn't for me in the time I played it, though I did have some fun moments. It could be that I need to give it more of a chance. The controls are surprisingly simple to learn, but hard to master. Reminds me of Infinity Blade more than I was expecting.

    I played it over the weekend as well. I agree with Mike's take on the beta completely in the 2 hours or so I played it. The random players I got matched with were pricks, so within an hour I was done with multiplayer and tried some single player, which is basically the same game, but your 3 other ghosts are AI-controlled. The friendly AI is poor because they rarely ever provided me cover when I was in trouble, which was often, but they will make it a priority to come revive you, but if you get gunned down a second time, you die for good. The Sync Shot is a cool idea, but I didn't know how to queue it up for all 3 of the ghosts in my squad. A lot of my issues may have been due to me not knowing how to play the game. Another issue I had was I was assaulting a downed plane with some UNIDAD soldiers guarding and set up the Sync Shot, engaged and shot couple of them and the whole scene, plane, truck, and all just disappeared like the scene never existed in the first place. Definitely a beta bug.

    The game seemed like it has the playground to do some really fun things, and with some friends rather than using the AI squad, I think it could be really fun. Random players are good for some company, but I found them annoying when trying to accomplish anything, as with most games.

    I don't know that I'll jump in right away when it comes out, but I might get into it later when I finish a few other games.

    Didn't Jaz give the last game a 4.5? I'd say it was received by some very well, and there was a movie made the year before that (that I haven't seen). I know Criterion developed Most Wanted (seemed to me to be a mashup of Burnout Paradise and Need for Speed). I'd like to see what Criterion does next with the series. I'm not into free-to-play games as much though.

    The best FF game is finally getting a remaster, with a more-tangible release date. This is most excellent! The only thing that would make it better for me is a PC release. I have most of the Final Fantasy titles on PC now, and I'd much rather play 12 there with my awesome gaming rig.

    Metroid Prime is one of the best games I have ever played. They struck gold back then and followed it up with Echoes and Corruption, but now the "Prime" series has morphed into cartoon chibi scifi with Federation Force. I wish it would go back to what made Super, Prime, and the original great: you're alone on this strange world with hideous creatures and you have to make sense of it all, while gathering new tech to face the challenges ahead. I want a dark and mysterious Metroid game again.

    @SatelliteOfLove I've been playing it recently too, and I'm really enjoying it, though it took me a little while to get hooked by it at the start. Now, I'm 75 hours in and still way into it.

    @NateDizzy I loved the first GR when it came out, didn't play GRAW, and only dabbled in Future Soldier. Regardless, I'm back into being excited about the direction Ubisoft was taking these games ever since R6 Siege and The Division came out. I have high hopes for some cocaine-fueled open-world Clance.

    Games taking up my time lately are mostly RPGs that I've been putting off:

    1. Pillars of Eternity
    2. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE
    3. Persona Q
