I did say "kind of". It's not the best of comparisons because Xenoblade is a lot more involved from a mechanics perspective, but it's the closest game I've played to compare FFXV to. You'll have to let me know if you feel the same - I'm guessing not, but you may have played other games that are closer to FFXV that make better comparisons.

Yeah, I'm not sure what to expect from XVI. Tales of Arise should be good, I hope, and Dragon Quest and Pokemon will always be able to fill my JPRG itch.

XV is a lot more action-based, kind of similar to Xenoblade but without the waiting for attacks to recharge. There's a lot of exploration and side-quests as well, which if you're not into that sort of thing might get stale after a while but I rather enjoyed it in order to flesh out the world and the population. For the first 8 or so chapters it's extremely open and you're given reign to do whatever. After that, though, the story becomes rather constrictive (which makes sense plotwise but felt rather frustrating especially with the plot twists and turns in conjunction). I guess in that way it's kind of the opposite of XIII, but I think XIII did the linear stuff a bit better while XV has a much better open section.

I will also say that while there are magic spells that you can cast, I barely used any at all and got through the game just fine, so that was a bit odd.

The only real downsides I found with the game were the load times (takes a good couple of minutes to load a new chapter or save file, though maybe it's less on a PS4 Pro) and some glitchy spots (had a picture where one of the characters appeared twice, and another time the characters were all standing in the car as it was going down the road and I had to reset to get it fixed, though each of those only happened once). Aside from those, while I never really got a "Final Fantasy" vibe from it (in spite of the familiar creatures and monsters), it was a very good time and I almost went for the full right away. Just missing a boss fight that I don't feel like grinding for at the moment.

Ye I think i'm going to start doing that when Iceborne drops. 140-150 uses per weapon is really impressive! do you have a favorite weapon from the series be it the design or just how it plays?
I loved the Insect Glaive in 4U for playstyle and the Demolition Katana long sword for design - [Link]

Nice! the only "old" thing on my PC at the moment is the CPU i5-4690k but that i7-9700k is a beast hoping to get a new motherboard/CPU/RAM combo from Overclockers on Black Friday
Ye I love CD keys too saved so much money on there the past few years.

Hope you get all those crowns soon! that team combo sounds awesome and using the Switch capture feature to measure the size of them I would of never thought of that! (I wonder if it works on Worlds too)

I'll be keeping an eye on my Multi-tap to see how those DLC quests go for Awakening I keep meaning to get them but so much stuff is coming out at the moment i'm getting overwhelmed

Ye tried some Generations Ultimate earlier this week and enjoyed the improvements they made from the original! It’s been crazy going through all the games again recently and seeing there differences and what’s weapons changed in previous games so far it’s been..

Long Sword - MH4
Charge Blade & Hammer - MH4U
Long Sword (Adept) & Lancer (Guild)- Generations

For World though my main has been Charge blade but I’m really getting into the other weapons now like Sword/Shield and more recently Small bow gun (after seeing that ice borne move to reload on a dodge mechanic) you normal main charge blade right?

Haha awesome what PC spec are you going for?
I recently splashed out on a RTX 2080Ti, New power supply (to power the card :P) and a M.2 Flash SSD. One of the first games I bought / tried was MH World and it runs like a dream you’re gonna love it!

If you haven’t got MHW on PC yet you can get it for 50% off on CD Keys [Link] they send you a code through email to activate on Steam. Used the site for my last few Steam/Uplay purchases and they’ve been really reliable. So highly recommended

Nice. I got a new computer last fall as well, been doing PS4 gameplay / walkthrough recordings etc now. Good luck with the crowns, those mods sound really useful for the next round...

I’m loving this idea of spreading the word that Fire Emblem DS as the true redeemer of the franchise in 2019. We'll just have to keep the graphics talk to a minimum and capitalize on the fact they had no feet in Awakening then I think we can get away with it!

Ye after reading your comments about FE: Revelations and MHGU it looks like I have a few games to revisit along with Tokyo Mirage! I remember there was a option to download Revelations in Conquest but I had a look for the physical edition and it was £100 (Bit out of my price range but I'll keep looking)

Just downloaded the MHGU Switch Demo again so i'll give that a go now and see how it goes
Been in a really big Monster Hunter mood recently and even tried out Dauntless on the side. I wouldn't put it on MHs level but it has a nice arcade style feel to it and some nice looking gear maybe worth a shot.

Oh man I always start going for the Monster crowns early on in Monster Hunter games but by the time I’m 100 hours in I checkout the progress tab see that I’ve barely scratched the surface and loose all hope haha!
I still remember that video you posted when you 100%ed MH4U that was absolutely ridiculous and the craziest Mastery of a game I've ever seen still to this day.

Also saw this article the other day and thought you mite be interested. Project Exile have done a full translation of FE: Thracia 776. Mite be able to get a more definitive experience from this version possibly? [Link]

I was surprised at how quickly I was going through IX as well - one of my coworkers started playing it for the first time over a month ago, and I ended up lapping him. I think the speed-up function in both that and XII helped considerably in getting this far.

Yeah, I was doing a looooooot of YouTube watching and OST listening while I was grinding out kills. It's a terrible trophy, probably the third worst for that game. There's a way to AFK it in Disc 2 if you have a turbo controller, but I don't. It's not difficult by any means, just monotonous. The other two really bad ones are: [Win 100 unique Tetra Master games], which is gonna suck because Tetra Master is a really bad mini-game, but at least you can get some good cards to help you out and reset if you lose; and [Jump rope 1000 times straight], which is going to be absolutely horrendous. Not looking forward to that one at all.

Best of fortune to you on the Hard/Classic runs! Luck be with ye!
