After far too many years, the game formerly known as Versus 13 has been released. Plenty of reviews are giving it pretty decent scores, but you wanna know the only thing that really matters?

Who is the hottest boy?

(The answer is Prompto)

    I keep being marginally interested in this for some reason
    I played one of the demos, and it was an awful demo because it in no way determined if I'd actually like the full game or not

    And so I'm hearing a lot about how good this is, but also I don't know those reviewers' general attitude or taste, and also there is my long standing policy of Fuck JRPGs In General and Final Fantasy in Particular

    If you get a Japanese PSN account, which is free to make, you can try the last demo, which is just the first 90 minutes of the game

    if that's too big of a pain the game is also in Redbox

    Going through the tutorials at the start since I completely ignored all the demos; this combat system seems pretty fun.

    Although, and I hate to be this guy, the graphics don't look nearly as good as I was expecting. Maybe they just didn't give a shit about nice textures on the tutorial area, or I'm just too used to DS3 on the pc, but everything looks super bland and low res.

    I take back what I said about the graphics; this game is fucking gorgeous once you hit the overworld.

    They gave a talk at Siggraph earlier this year about the engine tech, and it was super clear that they focused on tools to make the open environments beautiful. Not sure how interior spaces compare!

    I wish I had a ps4 to play this. First console game that's interested me in a long while.

    heres how i see it being a total win situation for you
    1. stay with your wife while she dog sits. this wins husband points since she knows its out of your comfort zone
    2. have sex all over her friends house so that the next time you see her friend look at you condescendingly, you can wink back knowing you did the freaky deaky where she eats her cheerios.

    Amazon said my shipping got delayed. Now arriving by 8 pm.

    I'd be sadder but that's probably around when I'll be getting home from work anyway and I'll be to tired to play anyway. Probably throw it in to install and patch and then pass the fuck out.

    The game unlocked the same time as I started work.

    This shift has been pretty awful let me say.

    Probably going to just play till I pass out once I get home.

    Him mentioning that removing your jacket increases you attack speed is a REALLY good little detail.

    Cause yeah, jackets are bulky.

    I'm dying.

    I picked up the guide too so I was flipping through that before bed last night.

    Now I'm sitting in work and I have stuff to do tonight (but at least I'll get the patch installing and ready for my day off tomorrow)

    IS IT TOMORROW MORNING YET?

    This is some straight up kid on xmas eve shit right now.

    The new ep came out today (titled Austin Walker XV) and they start talkin ff15 and jurps about 9 mins in or so after a discussion of how "levels" may be defined by new actions you're taking in a game now instead of story beats or boss breakpoints.
