Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age Dragon Quest XI
Clearly a labor of love. What a joy to finally have a proper numbered installment released on a home console in glorious HD. A must play.

Valkyria Chronicles 4: Memoirs From Battle Edition
Superb. Heart-wrenching, exhilarating and enormously satisfying. A more than worthy successor to the original.

Aw man, I don't think he has it ported to iPhone yet. But sure! It's just called "Persona 5 IM" and it's made by [Link]

Hey, I wanted to pop by and tell you that if you have an Android phone, there's a really sick Persona 5 text message app that you may enjoy. I saw your icon and thought you might want to know about it!

I mean VC4, but yeah, I tried to give VR a chance, I really did, but it was r o u g h. VC4 was a very welcome return to what we knew and loved in VC1.

Thank you! I was very surprised to see that it went back to the battle system I loved so much before. When I bought Valkyria Revolution, I was incredibly disappointed to find that it was just not the same, and it made me very sad. So this is a pleasant surprise. Have you played as well?

So, I just installed the BotW DLC to see what it would actually do (I’m already well past the point where I could beat the game if I wanted to, so I figured there would be no harm in it), and it’s pretty clear that they were taking concerns like yours and mine into account. All of the new treasure chests from the DLC have a giant “EX” on top of them (presumably for “expansion”), a group of new quests that were suddenly added to my quest log all have names that start with “EX:”, and the new gossip journals throughout the game (i.e. BotW’s version of Gossip Stones) are all labeled with “EX” as well, making them all really easy to avoid. So far as I’ve seen, nothing new has actually been forced on me yet, aside from the fact that the new mode that lets you see on the map where you’ve been isn’t actually marked as new.

I wish I could give you a solid answer about the BotW DLC, but I'm afraid I don't yet have the DLC myself, so I'm working from a bit of ignorance here.

From what I can gather, however, I think that you'll probably be fine to pick up the DLC from the get-go while experiencing the original game balance, though there are a handful of exceptions/things to be aware of.

For example, the first DLC adds the Trial of the Sword to permanently power up the Master Sword, but it's entirely optional and it's unlikely you'd be able to tackle it until near the end of the game anyway. There are also a number of callbacks to previous Zelda games (e.g. Majora's Mask, Zant's Helmet, Tingle's Outfit, etc.), some of which affect balance pretty significantly (e.g. Majora's Mask lets you walk right by enemies), but all of them are easily skipped/not used.

There are also a few other items that aren't so obviously out of place, such as an Ancient Bridle and Saddle (minor buffs for horses), Korok Mask (helps you locate Korok Seeds), or the Travel Medallion (ability to set a warp point), but, at least to me, those are all nice-to-haves, rather than meaningful changes to game balance.

Otherwise, the rest of the changes appear to either affect Master Mode (which you'd choose to play instead of a regular game), are only available after you beat the game (e.g. a new mode of travel), or don't affect balance at all (e.g. Hero's Path Mode just shows you the path you traveled on the map).

Aww, shucks. I had heard about the updates for 4K, the 4:3 option, and the loading screens making a return, but everyone has been mostly silent on the credits.

Well, I don't often say something like this, but hopefully you're wrong and will be in for a nice surprise!

So, you played the original and I see you just picked up the PS4 HD remaster...any word on whether Reset is used in the end credits this time around in Okami? I had heard that the Japanese HD remaster for the PS3 got it, but that they didn’t license it for release outside of Japan, hence why it was missing in other regions. I was hoping they would have cleared that up for the PS4/XBO release, but I haven’t been able to find a straight answer yet.

I can take or leave the loading screen minigames from the original, but when the credits started playing on the PS3 version and I heard something other than Reset, I actually pulled out my imported soundtrack and started playing it instead. To say the least, I’d love for this version to be the definitive release.

Yes! The love and attention to detail that went into this game is amazing. I could spend hours just watching Trico move around.

Dishonored really is enjoyable so far. This is a great change of pace from what I've been playing lately.

And as always, thank you. Still consistent with my themes and always will be!

I love Dishonored more than I could ever put words into. It feels more like a BioShock game that Infinite ever has.

As I've backed the Dreamfall Chapters project since day 2 (or 3) I've seen all the compromises, content cuts, delays etc, and seeing all various tech issues that Book One seems to have at the moment also makes me want to hold off... but I've waited so many years for the story to conclude I'm torn between jumping in (and potentially being disappointed in a broken/unfinished game) and holding off even longer (for a better, more rounded conclusion).

I'm hopeful it'll be as amazing as I want it to (and should be!), but there's always a little bit of niggling doubt anticipating possible disappointment
