In regards to the Far Cry 5 ending:

It was the cult that had the nukes. The cult "Super Fortresses" that you got dragged off to and had to fight through at the end, weren't just DIY fallout shelters, but rather nuclear missile launch facilities that they had taken over and rebuilt. While you, the player, wasn't informed directly, you can kinda put together the pieces: The reason that the government didn't roll in there and just take down the cult wasn't because they didn't know what was going on in the region, but because they knew that they had the nukes.

That nobody is 100% happy with the games list on this device really speaks to the wealth of games that are available on PlayStation. They could have made a ton of variations: One that was just fighting games, one that was just racing games, one that was just RPGs, one that was just Konami games...

Granted, Rainbow Six is a very oddball choice. You can kinda see why the other games are there, from a historical perspective and it's easy to summarize that Grand Theft Auto and Persona are there because those a franchises that are big now... but Rainbow Six? I guess it's there because FPS games are so hot now, but it's not even the best FPS on the system.

Anyway, speaking of what Ubisoft was known for, I thought of them as the small upstart company that made Zombi back then, based on an article in a local games magazine, so I thought it was weird that thy started making "kiddy games" like Rayman (That was how I felt about it back then)

Dan mentioned that he saw Ratchet n Clank get 9,8 from IGN and asked himself "Should I play these games?". The answer is: No, you definitely shouldn't play that kiddy bullshit and instead by mature games for mature gamers like NARC for Xbox, like I did.

Anyway, do they get to the Fortnite dance in this QL?

Abby, you would enjoy James Bond. Especially the Roger Moore movies, who to me is what James Bond should be all about: Cool gadgets and ludicrous villains. It's like the Austin Powers movies, but played straight.

Look at this clip

As someone who put a lot of hours into The Crow: City of Angels as a kid, I don't think this seems that bad. It feels like a 90's throwback more than anything, especially in the early polygonal days where everything controlled like ass.

Also, the heartbeat sound is indicating where you are supposed to go next.

Only recently discovered that the PC Engine CD is the system I've always wanted. Instead of all the janky FMV crap there was on SEGA CD, 3DO and PC, these games (due to limitations) all had RAZOR SHARP pixel art and cool anime style and where the CD-Rom tech was used was in the voice acting and redbook audio. What a great system!

Like everyone else probably have pointed out by now, Darcsens are, in the context of Valkyria Chronicles, a fantasy equivalent to gypsies and Jews. For instance, the first game has you liberating an Imperial concentration camp for Darcsens.

In the lore of the game the Darcsens are hated because of the "Darcsen Calamity", which supposedly was this great event thousand of years ago, where various Darcsen tribes battled each other with Ragnite weapons (basically had a nuclear war). However, as events unfold in the first Valkyria Chronicles, it is discovered that it wasn't the Darcsen that was at fault at all, but the invading Valkyrie.

PlayRoom is a fantastic window into other peoples lives. Here's some highlights from the last time I checked in.

Guy in disco lit living room drinking heavily while loud rave music plays. His girlfriend/wife is staring into her phone on the couch behind him

That Astrobot will forever be associated with the feeling of morbid curiosity and regret that is associated with the PlayRoom for me, so I'm not sure if I can get into this game.
