@onemanarmyy: I was thinking the along the same lines. I don't know that the chocobo even is the primary mascot of FF. Moogles and cactuar seem just as prevalent.

Regardless, I voted slime.

I think Rad is still being published by Bandai Namco, so I don't think it's a lock for immediate inclusion in Game Pass. It may end up on Game Pass eventually though.

I really wanted to like FFXV but fell off at around the point where Cup Noodles became a plot point.

The extremely ramshackle and kinda incomplete nature of this game that you point out is one of the biggest problems that I had with it and is pretty apparent from the very start. I remember playing the demo and feeling like the intro felt awkward but was probably just abbreviated and would feel more natural in the real game, but nope, the full game started off just as awkwardly.

The combat was mostly enjoyable, but I did kinda prefer some of the other attempts to take FF realtime more than this - Crisis Core, FFXII, Lightning Returns, and even Type-0 were all better in my opinion.

Lately it's been FFXIV for me.

Yeah, this isn't the sort of game that I would normally expect to get much attention from GB, but it would be a shame if it was somehow overlooked entirely. This is one of the best Fire Emblem games as well as probably the easiest one for newcomers to get into.

Well, they are down one anime expert right now, so it may take a while for the anime novices to pick up the slack.

It's also possible they may not have received an early copy. I don't think there was any mention of it on the Beastcast, but I guess we'll see if it comes up tomorrow on the Bombcast.

I'm extremely into this game.

Really loving it so far... except for how it looks. The characters are fine, but the Dynasty Warrior DNA really shows through in the environments. The worst of it is the laughably bad conversation backgrounds that were rendered at super low resolution with broken perspective in many places.

The game is good enough in other areas that you can learn to ignore the ugly bits, but they stick out in what is otherwise a very polished package.

ME: Andromeda is definitely number one for me.

RDR2 was also very disappointing for me, but it at least has some ambition and really took a swing at something. It's a game that I can understand some people really liking.

@aiomon: It's not a must in my opinion (some hardcore fans will certainly disagree).

However, Three Houses reduces the risk by allowing some limited rewinds in battle, so it should be significantly easier to get through classic mode without a death.
