    It looked great on my base PS4, I can only guess what it looks like on the PS5! I'm holding off on any of the DLC until I can play it that way.

    Somewhat off topic, I've found it really strange how lately the media (both traditional and social) have started calling people who play a video game series "fans" of said game, rather than "gamers" or "players". To me, the term fan means that I enjoy something without having any actual connection to it, like my fandom of the Dolphins, or the MCU. But for video games, its very different, because of how we use and interact with it.

    I think of gamers and players as a general term for people who play video games.

    Like a John is a gamer who is a fan of Final Fantasy.

    Between playing Mass Effect Legendary Edition and watching The Mandalorian, I am really wishing more than ever to have a Star Wars universe, non-Jedi, party-based RPG to play. It would be so much fun, and they would have countless points in the timeline that they could pick from that wouldn't interfere with the greater events of the movies.

    You could get Imperial Assault and play Legends of the Alliance...

    Looks interesting, but hard to play a board game by myself. :up:

    Many, many years ago I was briefly into a card collecting Star Wars game similar to (and building off of the hype of) Magic the Gathering. It was pretty cool.

    Legends of the Alliance is co-op, so it is easy to play solo.

    FFXV

    It is free when you have Playstation Plus on the PS5. Probably to make up for lack of games they give you a bunch of games free.

    So far it is interesting. Just makes me think when I was 10 I played the first Final Fantasy.

    This game makes me feel old as I can just stare in the distance and be amazed by the graphics. I was practically beating rocks to make fire as a kid compared to this game.

    I hope that you have fun with it. I played it before the updates, and plan to go back once I have a PS5.

    Reading and seeing all the stuff about the GTA remasters this week has made me realize that I've completely moved on from/outgrown the series, and have absolutely zero interest in them at all. Normally, when something like this comes out (like Final Fantasy or Mass Effect), I can't wait. But this time, just not at all, despite being totally into the games for a long time. But after giving up on the last one after a while on the PS3 because I was waiting for more single player content on the PS4....and that never happened.....I just lost interest.

    I've been playing COD since last year when it came out. I don't play Warzone, just never got into it. I prefer to watch this guy play it:

    I'll be all over Vanguard when it arrives in a week and then Battlefield 2042.

    I borrowed Octopath Traveler on the Switch from my local library for a week to try it out, and it lives up to the billing. Its made by Square, and is basically a SNES era Final Fantasy game in all but name. Very much like stepping back into my high school years as a gamer.

    As someone who has a ton of fond memories and nostalgia for that era, its a fun time. Younger people or those who weren't into NES/SNES JRPGs might not be as excited, because the graphics are all pixel art, and the game is only partially voiced. I'm going to look for it to go on sale and buy it for keeps, but $60 is just far too much.

    Playing FFVI makes me really miss the Active Time Battle system or the Conditional Turn based system of FFX.

    When I fight in this game it just feels like stuff is happening and I don't really feel like I am doing anything.

    Historically, the only Xbox exclusive I've been very jealous of. I'd love to check it out.

    I downloaded Kingdoms of Amular Rereckoning as a PS+ game, but haven't gotten into it yet.

    I found the original game (which I played years after release) to be too repetitive, at least not in an interesting way (as most games are somewhat repetitive). Not sure they could have changed much to make me want to try it again. I mean it wasn't bad, but it was just so meh, I was like "why am I spending my time on this 6.5/7 game, when I could play a 9+?" I had to have played for at least 20 hrs.

    Perfect feeling of this game, IMO. I played a lot more of it than 20 hours but the game's world felt lifeless- there's no grand cities and not a lot of NPCs to bring it to life if I remember. The combat is snappy but not all that deep- you're basically restrained to a cliche 3 paths (magic, stealth, melee) so classes are kinda bleh.

    That being said, it's a good "comfort food" game. It's not going to make you think that hard so you can kinda kick back with some brews or some herbs and just relax and play it.

    Given that the updates to Skyrim are out today, I'm going to jump back into that again and check it all out.

    I also think I played a lot more than 20 (I worry 35+), just I knew it was at least that much.
