    @NiceGuyNeon there are mods that fix bugs and improve stuff that isn't lore or game breaking. If you have a PC that can run it might as well get the PC version. As much as portability is nice I can't imagine playing Skyrim without a few essential mods that clean up some broken stuff in the base game.

    If they would have made even one or two new bosses to tackle I'd probably get it, some of the unused monsters in the concept art are amazing! Without anything new I don't see how I could justify the purchase, I mean those bosses were like puzzles, once you figure out how to beat them and get that first burst of satisfaction (and maybe dread, confusion and sadness) it just isn't the same beating them again.

    Not much. I'm currently playing through Middle-Earth Shadow of War and Yakuza 0 but I'm not really feeling either of them if I'm being honest. I think it's time I finally buy a Switch. I've never played an Assassin's Creed game but that latest one actually looks pretty cool.

    @Funny_Colour_Blue yeah my first thought after seeing it in motion is thinking they really need to do that little trick Nintendo did with the 3DS Link Between Worlds. The 3D here feels half assed (nevermind the lame cutscenes).

    It's tough. I definitely am not one to spend real money on this kind of thing I mean it's just basically mobile gaming gachapon shit leaking into regular games. I bought Middle-earth: Shadow of War because I loved the first game (well and because GMG had the pre order at $36) but I'm never going to spend real money on it's loot boxes. It's like MGS5, LOVED that game despite it's flaws but I never spent money on any of the microtransactions. As long as that stuff doesn't effect how the single player game plays I'm pretty okay with ignoring it.

    @otenko personally that's what I loved about the first game. It starts out challenging but at the end of the game you are basically a god of the battlefield. It is such an amazing and thrilling sense of character progression. It's not going to please everyone but I loved being able to stomp through the lands without fear like you do in the beginning of the game.

    I'm enjoying the second game so far, story is kind of dumb but I'm not really here for that. Wouldn't mind having alternate characters to play like the first one. Talion isn't the most interesting or likable fellow.

    @KaiserWarrior yeah i second this idea. What is even the percentage of people with 4k monitors? I don't think I'll be updating to 4k for ages, totally fine with 1080p. Lot of wasted hard drive space here for nothing.

    Old style isometric RPGs like Divinity or Fallout. I love RPGS and I love strategy games like FFT/ Fire Emblem but I find it hard to get into those old RPGS like Fallout. I mean I love LOVE FO3, New Vegas and FO4 but when I tried to play Fallout 1... idk, I just bounced off of it. I tried Divinity Original Sin a while back and it was REALLY good! Humourous, great turn based battles, but I ended up getting stuck and couldn't figure out how to progress the story and just moved onto something else. I'll have to go back and give that another go someday. hm, or maybe Torment. Idk. Preferably something turn based rather than real time.

    Just finished listening to this one with some early morning work. Client didn't make our scheduled morning meeting so taking the rest of the day off. ANYWAY, FF9! I've been playing through it on and off this past month. For those that haven't picked it up on Steam or PS4 the steam version has an option to skip the camera panning that happens in the random battles (I think PS4 version has that too?) but there is a mod on steam you can download that speeds up the pre battle swirl and the loading time before the camera pan too! (google Memoria Engine mod) I love FF9 but it's terrible to go back and play it on PS1 because of how slow the loading and camera pan segments are, really adds up! On the PC with the in game option and the mod I think the random battles pop up and are ready to play in 1-2 seconds. Much better! I know that doesn't help you Nadia since you're playing the PS4 version but just throwing this info out there for anyone else!

    It's interesting to note how Steiner and Vivi get what is basically almost a Chrono Trigger style dual tech thing going but they never really bother to do that with any other characters. Kind of a missed opportunity maybe but honestly Steiner's spell sword is super OP.

    Anyway happy to hear Nadia is enjoying it so far! I have always loved the charm and goofiness of this game (especially after FF8), honestly wish they'd take another shot at Final Fantasy with this kind of light heartedness.
