Finally, i have a console of my own!
Game Informer's exclusive coverage of this game. I recommend at least watching the 131 rapid fire questions, it's very entertaining.
There's allies on Reddit, Resetera, Discord (the unofficial group). Although i love how "small" this forum feels (so cozy), new active members are definitely a good thing. We need forum shoutouts on the streams and shows or something like that.
Just finished Persona 5... man oh man what a ride this turned out to be. I'm completely floored by how marvelous this game is. The bold art style, the menacingly creative palaces, the adventurous bass-heavy music, and everything in between is executed to freakishly absurd degree of quality. I can't believe a game can keep me engaged through 86 hours, but this game just did, effortlessly. I did really enjoy Persona 3 (haven't played 4 yet) but i find anything Tartarus related in that game to be quite a frustrating monotony, and that was a considerable part of the game. There's nothing in Persona 5 that made me bored, or mad because it's lack of quality. I can't say anything bad about this game.
The Phantom Thieves' changed my heart, for the better. (10/10)
I'm REALLY excited for Ghosts of Tsushima in particular, i have been a big fan of Sucker Punch and i can't believe that they're making a game like that. Hoping for a deep dive similiar to Horizon Zero Dawn in past E3s.
I'm also interested to see how Sony sets up their conference this time. Last year's E3 got some heat because of how it separates the PSVR section from the rest, making it clearly boring for viewers. Maybe this time they mixed it up and show games accordingly to their genre, for example: showing a shooter VR game after the obligatory COD presentation.
I'm not sure who will get to show From Software's game; Sony or Microsoft? There's also a rumor that Devil May Cry 5 will be shown at Sony's conference, that would be awesome.
The main deets about the console:
Gravity Rush 2. That last act is simply out of this world! Nuff' said.
Oh my god half of your list triggered me lol. I don't have many, but here's mine anyway.
Just started playing this game after buying it a few weeks back, 5 hours in, i'm absolutely impressed by everything so far. I like the fact that you're the bad boy of the school now, everyone's talking about you, everyone's avoiding you, which makes this feels so different from Persona 3 & 4. Previously you're just some regular new kid, it's normal to feel uneasy since no one knows who you are yet, and there's not much controversy regarding your past. Now, everyone knows your past, and they don't want some "criminal" walking down their neighborhood. Makes the game feel fresh for me.
I also like that it's quite friendly to newcomers of the series. A lot of helpful tutorials are available, and they show each mechanic of the game slowly, instead of just drowning you in the deep ocean right away. Previous games kinda did this, but to a lesser extent.
I'll post some updates here again, when i make considerable progress.
