    Been playing FFVIIR nightly. 20 hours in now and my only complaints would be minor things that I can live with, like almost any good game. I played the original multiple times and I know roughly where the remake is supposed to end. My only worry is they might leave me wanting too much more but then again they've stretched out the story pretty good so far with an expanded telling of the original story with some twists and turns you would not expect. I started feeling the game was a 10/10 in the first five hours and now I'm more feeling like a 9/10. Still a special game.
    its gonna be split into parts isnt it? 20+hours is pretty good for a multi part game

    Uncharted Nathan Drake Collection & Journey are free for everyone right now on PSN. All you need is a Sony Playstation store account. It's not a time limit trial or anything, simply free. Pretty cool.

    Wait until you get to Skellige. I was shocked by how big it was on top of where I had just been. Then later you get to the Toussaint in the expansion and again, same thing. The game is epic in scale but it's not empty spaces like BOTW, it is full of treasures and side quests. Amazing.

    By the way, if one were interested in listening to all the books to get a greater feel for the story it would be well worth the time investment:

    That's the correct reading order too by the way. My favorite stories mostly are mostly when Dandillion or Dwarfs are in the mix with Geralt or when Ciri is off to herself adventuring. I would not be shocked is "The Witcher 4" is a game with Ciri at the center. Then again, another and maybe better way to do it would be to go prequel to the books in the glory days of the Witchers.

    Really impressed with the story telling of the Witcher 3. They do a great job of bringing you up to speed on the story, without it feeling like just a mindless information dump.

    And the combat is surprisingly good as well. Really quite satisfying.
    Also love the way they weave in actual real life folklore and monsters with the story. Some great voice acting as well. How has nobody heard of this game?!

    saw the sega genesis bundle on switch. has shining force 1, and 2. 2 of my favourite rpg/turn based combat games. so good, and almost every play through is different because the cast of supporting characters, especially 2, is huge. who steps up, and who falls is different everytime.

    phantasy star 2,3,4 all are so good.

    on sale 16 bucks in the switch store

    edit add: i also found out those coins you get from purchases, are real money that can buy games. did this by accident, and another friend of mine who has had a switch for a couple years didn't know either.

    12 hours in and FFVIIR is outstanding. The only thing I wish it had that it does not is chair coop. Someone should be able to pick up the second or even the third controller and be able to play as my party members.

    Honestly, I find that having watched the show made just jumping into #3 pretty easy and more fun. I haven't played the first 2 games, but watching the show introduced alot of the characters and "sides" of the story.

    Also, I modded mine so Geralt looks like Henry Cavill ... Haha
    it's actually free on game pass. have the download going. i prefer roleplaying games, not like icewind dale, on console. and free is best price.

    Is it good? I keep talking myself out of buying it after watching the show.

    Just got Witcher 3 with all the DLC for $20 last night actually ... I'm finally giving in and trying it for the first time as well.

    First things first ... mod the hell out of the graphics. 6GB 4K texture pack installing now. Lol
    Have fun! Remember there are four sets of secret armor hidden in the game if you will run out of things to do.

    Heart of Stone is really good too. I think the story is better in Heart of Stone.

    Blood and Wine in particular is an awesome expansion pack. It's quite large with lots of stuff to do.
