@Aeolus -- Your posts keeping turning my attention to the RS2 icon taunting me on my PS4 home screen. Problem is, soon as I tried it I realized I still have turn based burn out from Persona 5. The Saga series in general is the one franchise I really want to devote time and have not sadly.

I know I've been enjoying it thus far. It doesn't seem to be as rife with Guide Dammit moments as other SaGa games are. Like the GameFAQs walkthrough I'm using is missing quite a bit of information in regards to scenarios and side-tasks (like what to do with the Stone Boat, since its generally useless once you cool down the Volcano) but they're easy enough to spot. That said, its not completely without hazards (like losing an Emperor on the Stone Guardian boss fight during Rocbouquet's quest, Cumberland, or missing out on sleeping with the fishes), but its not like you have to follow a play-by-play guide to do everything (although that's generally because SaGa games infamously do not allow you to do everything in one playthrough). It helps that RS2 in particular has pretty clear cutoff points for the most part.

FFXV Ep. Gladiolus -- I don't care if anyone thought it was too short. Any more would have felt grindy and padded to me. Perfecto. Quickly reminded me of why I adore this game.

This is either a remake or a sequel of a game from 3 years ago.  RPGFan covered it

It's a little weird that PQube is publishing it, since they're based in the UK and this game is banned in that region.

I got Minecraft on PSN for my son because he had a great year in Kindergarten.

This morning was the first time I had ever played Minecraft myself, ever.

...I fear I may have a problem.

Wait what?

...oh, that game that was actually banned by the UK ratings board. Yeah, I think I'll go back to pretending this clearly desperate, pandering game doesn't exist.

Strange how people can still support a company because of something they made 20 years ago when odds are the individuals responsible for that 20 year old success have long since moved on.

There is a new game coming out called Omega Labyrinth Z. Aside from the main character having BOOBS THAT GROW ALL THE WAY UP TO A Z-CUP(!), the really interesting thing about this game is that it's being developed by Matrix Software. This is a company who has made exactly 4 games (that matter). Alundra, Torneko: The Last Hope, Alundra 2, and Dual Hearts. That first game, Alundra, is one of the greatest games ever made. It's not an RPG, though. Perhaps the other three games are pretty good as well, but I can't expect any of them to hold a candle to Alundra. Their last game, Dual Hearts came out SIXTEEN years ago. I'm very excited that Matrix Software is coming back after all this time with a major console game. I hope it's fun.

Any of you guys hear about this game or play any of Matrix's old games?

I've played some of their more recent games like the DS port of Final Fantasy 3 (whom some will recognize as that version of an FF game that's better ignored over the original NES/Famicom version) as well as hearing about their work on FF4, as well noted DS game Avalon Code (a game who's gimmick is that you record people, things, tools, monsters, magic and ideas into this book and use them to fight your way across the game and ultimately to rebuild the world; but in practice, falls incredibly short of even achieving basic gameplay mechanics (like the book being treated like an inventory menu, except that its horribly unorganized, chock full of clutter and an unsorted mess that you have to dive into every time you need something from it), and the plot is absolutely nothing to write home about either; choosing to squander absolutely everything about the conceit of the game).

So I hate to tell you this, but this game is exactly as vapid shovelware trash appealing only to the lowest common denominator as the cover and basic concept implies.

The god-damn CAMERA! Cameras do not need to be auto-correcting themselves to look behind you would be a start. But a much better solution is just to program the camera angles into the game. You'll get way more interesting angles than you can with a free camera and the background won't be ALL BLURRY FROM CAONSTANTLY SPINNING AROUND THE CHARACTER EVERY TIME YOU TURN A CORNER!

That and an overabundance of treasure chests. Seriously, nearly every game that exists could make treasure chests great again by simply reducing the number by about 90%. Maybe then, they'd actually consider putting treasure inside that makes the player happy they found it.

Well, I'M gonna condescend to both of you guys! If you like Final Fantasy IV, you are objectively a worse person than I am. Hahaha. Just kidding. Of course it's all opinions. I'm a gameplay first story second kind of guy despite my favorite genre of game being JRPGs. I haven't played much of 5 but I get the feeling that if you've played 6, you just don't need to go back to 4 or 5. The Playstation FFs, on the other hand all feel different enough to play all of them.

Vesperia definitely had good characters and story. One of the best in RPGs in general.
