I'm glad you said that.  I don't think i'd have even researched a game called Hob, but it actually looks pretty cool.    Though I don't think i need another Diablo like game just yet, I've got a few in the pipeline.    But still... will keep an eye on it.

It's not a Diablo clone.

But you can do that with Aard and stabby. Faster and less casting.

 

 

It's not linking right, but go to 1:41, and 4:14.

:D that's neato, though i think I'd get bored very quickly

Yeah, I'm hyped as well to finally have another Monster Hunter on a proper console. Probably take a vacation week for it since I have 5 weeks and the release date will be about 2 1/2 months after my November vacation which is about as long as I can work without one.

It's the most I've been excited for a game in a good long while. Mostly because it's hitting a nice sweet spot for me. I am a very recent fan of MH thanks to buying 3U on a whim back in July (tried to get into this kind of game earlier but it didn't stick for various reasons) and I think that's one of the best games I've ever played so the fact we have this modern, console, great looking MH game coming so soon just gets me fired up as a new fan.

Finally got MVC updated, the pre-order costumes say installed but I can't select them. Capt Marvel's works, but not the other 4. Suggestions?

Well, I did say it shortens combat in Witcher 3 if you didn't like it much, so you can still enjoy everything else about it. I abused Aard and Axii my second playthrough to rush through.

I’m tempted to play FF9 since I never played it but I remember I bought it for PS3 and never even started it. I could also just emulate it. I would’ve been in at 12.99 but I dunno about $17

So I guess unfortunately this is the way games are headed. They are all going to not necessarily a pay to win model but definitely a pay to enjoy model. Nba2k18 is a microtransaction fest and it's saddening. They have made you gain VC nw at basically half the rate you used to, you have to rebut previously purchased haircuts and stuff if you change and want to go back, you gain half the vc you used to via the app, and you can no longer preview attribute upgrade purchases, so basically 2k is forcing you to buy VC if you want to properly enjoy the game now...just pathetic.

Have FF IX on iOS and it’s a good enough port that I have no desire to pay what they’re asking on PS4 for it.

So... I kind of really want to play FFXV.

 

Is there any advantage to waiting at this point?  Like, should I wait for some sort of GOTY edition?  Or am I fine with vanilla?  I feel like I remember reading the DLC was great/important?  Or something?

 

 

It's not a Diablo clone.

oh, cool.  i just figured it shared that general theme due to torchlight [arpg lewt based combat]

Same I am really tempted but I'm wondering if it will go lower.  One of the only times I feel like I have to buy dlc is for fighting games.

You're fine with just the base game. All the DLC is not out yet so I doubt there will be a goty edition on PS4 anytime soon. As for the DLC itself there are 4 packs: 1 for each NPC party member (where you play as them during a period they are not in your party) and a multiplayer expansion. Currently 2 of the party member DLCs are out with the final one planned for December. The multiplayer expansion doesn't have a release date yet but it's already had a beta and it's coming out before the final party member DLC so it will probably be out real soon.

 

Now that said despite all the DLC tying directly into the story (even the multiplayer DLC for reasons I won't spoil obviously) it's pretty optional imo. Both of the party member DLC packs that are out currently are short and just add some extra character development, nothing critical. The multiplayer DLC may as well be an entirely different game as you are playing a custom made character and it doesn't look like it will actually have much story involved based on the beta.

Waiting means for GOTY if it happens will give mean you have the Ignis DLC and multiplayer mode DLC ready to go when you start it up. It probably will come since PC is getting a complete version. But those character DLC are played separately, not worked directly into your main playthrough, so it's not as big a deal. I think the base game has gotten all the big improvements it's going to (like the reworking of chapter 13) So it's probably worth jumping in now. The multiplayer is fun but not essential unless you really love the combat.

 

I don't know about PSN but the Digital Deluxe Edition that has the season pass included has been about $35-40 on Xbox, I'd at least wait for that sale again.

Man, I've been whining about wanting FFIX on PS4 for a long time now. I haven't played it in so long. Even at that price it's tempting, but I kinda wanna wait and see if we have a flash sale this week and what that could potentially bring.

Stern Pinball Arcade added the Ghostbusters table today for owners of the retail disc or 'bundle pack 2'. It's not available for individual purchase yet, but it's free as of today's patch if you already have the full game. Stealth release.

 

The patch also adds links to buy the Limited Edition versions of some tables, but they're not available for purchase yet either. The LE tables are just cosmetic differences... optional DLC to milk diehard pinball fans.

Oh heck yeah. We already knew it was gonna be Q1 18 but I was not expecting January. I am so freaking hyped! The collector's edition looks cool but I want the game digitally for various reasons so I guess I am just gonna go for the digital deluxe edition.


Same for me. I may be swayed if the special edition ps4 pro releases in the US though.

January 2018 is going to be a money sink for people that like Japanese games:

 

Ni no Kuni II - 1/19

Lost Sphear - 1/23

Monster Hunter World - 1/26

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT - 1/30

 

The Secret of Mana remake is 2/15 and Yakuza 6 is 3/20 to keep that Japanese train rolling for the first few months.

This year has been brutal and looking like next could be the same, I've never been one to get every single game day one but have been having to pick and choose what to support/play more than usual way more than the last few years.

Absolutely. Japan has been killing it for the past year or so on PS4, it's been really amazing since Japanese action games/RPGs are pretty much my favorite styles of games, but, there is really no hope of me keeping up. I still don't even own stuff like Nioh, Nier, and Berseria and those came out at the start of the year. Persona 5 and Square putting almost every Kingdom Hearts game on PS4 in the span of 2 months just consumed the first half of the year for me.

 

And yeah I legit want everything on that list, though, realistically MH World is the only one I will buy at launch. Ni No Kuni will be way later as I need to play the first game (it's in the backlog), Lost Sphear looks right up my alley but not paying $50 for it, I enjoyed the Dissidia beta a lot but I need to see if there will be any single player stuff (really liked the single player in 012), Secret of Mana I'm not sure about yet, and Yakuza 6 is way down the line since I just got into the series with Kiwami.
 

It's a pretty awesome time to be gaming.

Yeah, the only game I think I'm more excited about is Dragon Quest XI. I played MH3 on the Wii back when it first came out and liked it quite a bit. I also got MH4U on the 3DS but while I liked the game itself, I didn't play it very long due to the awkward controls.

Ni No Kuni and Monster Hunter a week apart...yikes. I know I won't be able to finish Ni No Kuni before Monster Hunter but that won't stop me from buying both at launch.

Fortnite's Battle Royale mode is supposedly going completely free for everyone to play as a free download on PSN on 9/26. I'm not sure if that's a separate, standalone download or free DLC for that free client that otherwise required a Founder's Pack purchase to actually play the regular game.

Cool, was vaguely interested in this with all the positive buzz I've been hearing. Actually kinda think fortnite looks interesting in general but I will happily wait until the whole thing goes f2p next year or whatever.

ff9 is ok combats really slow and characters constantly leave the party and come back underleveled (freya especially).  It has alot of missables so you may want a guide.
