Other than Frye I liked all the characters. Wouldn't mind purchasing a dlc mission pack w/ affinity missions if they would do that.

I'll just wait for the GotY (or whatever they'll choose to call it) version that I'm almost certain will come about in a year, or so. Get my money's worth.

cause ff15 is like....i wanted some frosted flakes but the company stopped making frosted flakes and lost the recipee. they keep trying to replicate the recipee but it never tastes quite right.

That analogy makes me think of the whole Hostess thing. Ever since they were resurrected a few years ago, none of their shit tastes even remotely as good as it used to.

I played this for the first time in maybe... 2010 or 2011? Loved it. Really engaging story and gameplay (better than Deus Ex, imo), though very unbalanced towards the end.* Also, super dark. There's some really, really messed up stuff you'll come across.

* Make sure you have at least some combat specialty. You can talk your way around/out of most things in the game, but the last chapter or so is hugely combat-focused and I've read you're basically screwed if your character can't fight (I was combat focused, so I can't speak to my own experience).

You ain't lyin' about the combat. I noticed in like the 2nd quest you get that having some sort of combat ability is practically a necessity. Thankfully, my character is pretty bad ass in hand to hand. It was cool to be able to start that particular quest by sneaking around the back of the house, turning off the power, and feeding on the dude who comes outside to check.
I'm not against dark stuff... so long as it doesn't haunt my dreams -

iirc Bloodlines isn't really /simpler/ than Deus Ex per se but you're more locked into your race/stat allocations, so you end up with fewer choices in a given playthrough, but they're still there? Also iirc the fanpatch is basically mandatory.

Just curious, but how is Divine Divinity stability-wise for you? I remember trying to play it on my old Lenovo back in uni but it'd crash frequently when I tried to open doors, and being a game with a lot of doors, this was a problem. There's a good chance my laptop's integrated audio was causing that though, so!

Seems like you've hit the nail on the head with Bloodlines. Meaning, there is some choice, but you're kind of locked into certain things. Still, it's a pretty bad ass game. The GoG version includes the latest fan patch, and it seems to run very well. I'm looking forward to playing it more in the future.

As for Divine Divinity, it crashed to the desktop in the very first dungeon, when I tried to read a book on a table. Wasn't a good sign. However, I've played for about 8 hours since then, and have had no crashes whatsoever, and I've visited tons of places; opened lots of doors; and looked at many books. Not sure if it makes a difference, but it's also the GoG version, and I'm playing on a medium/high-end desktop.

Playing some Ys: Memories of Celceta and boy howdy, I'm loving it! Glad one of my fellow editors bought it for me so I could get into the series. The combat is just very addictive, and I find the writing and character designs extremely charming.

On a side note, I did start Steins;Gate, and I hate the main character so far. I take it you're supposed to hate him at first and then he grows on you? Hate might be a strong word... I just dislike him. What I don't dislike is that gorgeous artwork, though!

new humble bundle out, the theme is tycoon simulators. The 2 that seem interesting are Big Pharma and Democracy 3(topical!). Time to give them a whirl before my copy of FF 15 comes and the Hex update next week.

edit=Decembers bundle is pay 30 dollars or more and get 31 games essentially, they're revealing one every day. Nothing too great right now other than guns of icarus if you have friends to play that with.
New $30 bundle is underwhelming so far and needs more quality before it is worth for that $30 price tag.

^ Thanks.  Not sure why SF5 was brought up in response to my post, but alright.
All I meant was that, nowadays, most fighters are built for multiplayer only.  And if KoF follows that trend, then I will be skipping it same as every other fighter after Tekken 6 (one of the greatest single-player fighters ever).

I'm definitely on Team Ribombee, myself.  It's cute AND fun.

Also, Din, if you're looking to go somewhere different with Eevee, Sylveon (aka Sailormooneon) is a kind of unique version that is very easy to acquire.

Finally listened to the Hamilton soundtrack to find out what all the hype is about.  It's pretty good, and especially good at its climax, when it hits all the emotional notes expertly.  I would imagine it's a pretty impressive show to see live.
GOD i hated
Spoiler: show
the jump scares in Chapter 13
so much.

Updates to FFXV expected in the future.
This sounds pretty big....
Thank you for playing Final Fantasy XV. Final Fantasy XV was able to achieve an amazing accomplishment, shipping 5 million copies worldwide on the release day. I would like to express my gratitude for everyone that has purchased it.

Currently I have heard many players around the world enjoying themselves. Players are pleased to be enjoying this new Final Fantasy, as well as the staff, we are really happy.
We’ve promised before launching the game that Final Fantasy needed to be complete before it was released. We will continue to update and we are planning to provide a more rich gaming experience to all players around the world. As a gratitude for exceeding 5 million copies, I’ve decided to strengthen the update plan considerably beyond the original plan and inform you of a concrete road map.

These are updates to make the Final Fantasy XV gaming experience more rich, and for longer playability, updates based on requests from players after the release, and in addition to DLC development reported previously. They will be given for free for the short term, mid-term, and long-term.

Final Fantasy XV Update Roadmap

Short-term goals
First, we will update the experience of Chapter 13’s gameplay. For that reason, we are undertaking many enhancements such as increasing the power of the ring’s magic. We will inform you of the details of updated content at a later time.

Mid-term goals
Updating the production of the second half of the game, further enhancing the experience of the story. For example, we are planning to add event scenes where “What happened to Ravus?” was from. In addition to the event scenes, voice responses and localization work to all languages will occur so we will work firmly on this as a mid-term goal. Details of the plan will be announced once it’s decided.

Long-term goals
We will make it possible to use important characters that appeared in the main game as playable characters. We will also consider adding an avatar system to create original characters. In addition to this, we will continue to actively update so that various players can enjoy Final Fantasy XV for a long time.

After clearing the game, you can carry your progress into a New Game. Finishing it at a low level, an invincible suit, we will offer various items that extend the range of play. Fonts displayed can be enlarged for easier reading.
For the already announced DLC, it is planned to be released as originally intended.

FFXV Holiday Pack
FFXV Booster Pack
FFXV Episode Gladiolus
FFXV Episode Ignis
FFXV Episode Prompto
FFXV Online Expansion Pack: Companion

On behalf of the staff and all players around the world, we hope you will enjoy Final Fantasy XV even more. Thank you for your continued support for Final Fantasy XV and the Final Fantasy series.

FFXV Director Hajime Tabata

Curious about some of these though.  Wonder how it'll be implemented.
I really hope other gameplay tweaks get fit in too

Spoiler: show
One nice one is the looming question of "what the fuck happened to Ravus" and tweaking the 13th chapter (which, to me, though emotional/scary was about 2 hours too long and 20 jumpscares too many :P).
