Avoid PSO2 from the MS store.  It improperly sets permissions so it doesn't recognize it's own files, reinstalls it's self in all available space on the drive, then "forgets" where these installs are so it can't be uninstalled.

Total clusterfuck.  Forums are talking about re-formatting being the best option to reclaim disk space.  Don't know if that's impatient teens or the actual best solution, but the fact that folks are even discussing a reformat over a game install is bad.

EDIT: I was able to clear the disk space by changing the permissions in \WindowsApps and manually deleting multiple directories.  But still ...

I have been very lucky then. This launch has been flawless for me so far, and I used the MS Store. Zero issues, both install and account wise.

Same here. Nary a problem was had with the install.

Troy is being given away for free because it looks absolutely awful, and after Thrones of Britannia, nobody is going to buy a Total War Saga title for $40. The preview builds and closed-door showings of the game have been almost universally panned, and recent videos showing off a preview battle do not do it any favors either. It tries to straddle the historical-versus-fantastical line and does it very poorly, unlike something like Three Kingdoms.

About the best thing that could be said for it so far is that it looks like it's being used as a test bed for features and QOL that'll come in Total Warhammer 3, as it uses the same engine.

Also as a side note, since Total War games all run out of CA's own launcher, after the initial purchase and install, the Epic Store will be pretty unobtrusive for it. Here's hoping Warhammer 3 doesn't get snagged though, as that'll be an absolute nightmare with DLC integration.

Some sort of Demons Souls was just announced for PSV. Can't tell if it's a remaster or new.

Not a remaster, it's a remake. Also, not by FROM -- it's from Bluepoint Games, they did the Shadow of the Colossus remake, among other remakes/remasters.

Ah, thanks. They did a good job with the SotC remake, but not sure about doing DS.

Otherwise there was lots of good looking stuff in the PSV presser, and also a bit of meh.

Some of us were crying in Discord when Demon's Souls showed up. With that said, knowing it's not by From is the ultimate party pooper. Sure, it could turn out good but I don't trust it.

Anyway, here are the only trailers you should care about from the 80 minutes presentation.

The Playstation 5.

Demon's Souls

Horizon Forbidden West

Project Athia

Returnal

Deathloop

Resident Evil 8

Gran Turismo 7

Little Devil Inside

Stray

Ghostwire Tokyo

You missed Ratchet and Clank. ;)

Returnal looked like a neat idea with a terrible name made by a marketing team that needs to try harder.

Better or worse than 5?  I stalled out on 5 (due to a unexpected death too far removed from a save, and then a crash too far removed from a save in the same fucking location), but still liked it quite a bit.  20 dollars is surprisingly cheap.

Overall, I think 5 is probably the best Persona. But depending on how much setting, characters, atmosphere and stories have an impact on you that can easily change. For example, I like Persona 3 much better than Persona 4 but public opinion is split. Same for Shin Megami Tensei 3 and/or 4. Also, if you ask me the quality of the port is fantastic. The game is gorgeous in a way that it's hard to see its Playstation 2 roots.

So the answer is: \_(ツ)_/  (I have no idea how people do this characters, I copy-pasted it from Google after searching "shrug emoticon")

Griftlands is on Steam now for $10, and there's a demo too. It's an RPG with a "Slay" engine. It is much more than what you can describe in a few words. It deserves to be checked out and even tried (again, free demo) without thinking too much.

From Klei, the Oxygen not included and Don't Starve people.

I like 5 better. 4 has some decent story lines and some QOL improvements over P3. I stalled out on 4 and couldn't finish. I think I was underleveled at some point and just didn't feel like grinding it out.

Rocksmith 2014 is $9 on humble rn https://www.humblebundle.com/store/rocksmith-2014-edition

Still need to get a cord (unless you know what ASIO is), but if you buy Cherub Rock DLC you can get thousands of fan-made DLCs (it uses Cherub Rock as a base for modding).

And I do mean thousands, I'm over 1000 songs now and I'm fairly picky  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

So I discovered a downside to playing more frequently on a Nintendo console (a Switch). I can no longer play on an Xbox controller because the face buttons, while sharing the same labels as Nintendo, are all in different positions. I was trying to play the Code Vein demo on PC yesterday because the full game is on Steam sale and was trying to decide if I wanted to purchase it and I was constantly struggling to press the proper button on button prompts. So now I have a PS4 controller on order so I can use that instead.

Is that someone who is both a racist and a rapist, or is it a rapist that rapes racists?
