@genericbrotagonist: The funny thing is, I've spent so many years making fun of Nomura's character designs in Kingdom Hearts (never having played the actual games of course), but now I play FFXV... and damn if I don't like that crew's fashion sense, haha.

Yeah, FFXV is very high on my "I wish I could see the version of this game as it was originally intended" list. It's like that, and MGSV.

But yeah, it's weird to go back and watch old trailers that make it look like there was a LOT in Insomnia, whereas now it was relegated to Kingsglaive, not counting the wrecked version at the end of the game.

@electricbarrier: Honestly, "out of context it's nothing special but in context it made me cry" is a good summary of a lot of the game. I mean, it was only the end that made me cry, but you get what I mean.

@rorie: Yeah, given that they cancelled multiple DLCs, I doubt Square really wants to spend any more money on the game than they have. At this point I'm just hoping they can make FF VII Remake feel more coherent and polished than this one. I think there's a better chance of that.

@doombot13: I hadn't heard that, but that seems like something that would happen. Especially when I get the feeling these games are made on a shoestring budget (thus the continued repetition in areas) to begin with.

@cjduke: The thing I'd say about the loading screens is that, as someone who has played a lot of Destiny 2, while I haven't compared the two, I don't think Anthem's are actually that much longer, they just show up more frequently (which is a problem), and you can't do anything during. Unlike Destiny's, which you can use your inventory and stuff during (never mind that even just the loads themselves, where you watch your ship fly around, are more interesting than the same couple of static images with not useful 'tips').

It's such a bizarre thing, and I really hope somebody at Kotaku or somewhere is squeezing them for all the details on how this happened. Like after Andromeda there was a lengthy article about that game's long drawn out development.

But I bought it, so I'm bought in. Fun was had, and hopefully they can get it to a much better place. In the meantime, I'm going back to Destiny 2.

@ajayraz: I have a brand, and it's calling animals in games Friend, toilets, and large cones.

@brackstone Well put indeed!

@justin258: I did not! Was that the Metroidvania that looked like a borderline litigious rip-off of Symphony of the Night (I'm joking). It looked neat in the Quick Look, but like a lot of games last year (including Guacamelee 2 and Dead Cells, along with the games I mentioned in the post), I never got around to it. Your recommendation is noted, though, thank you!

@cjduke: The only thing I'll say about Iconoclasts and Hollow Knight is that Iconoclasts took me ten hours to finish, and Hollow Knight was over 40.

And yeah, this generation especially, I can really only think of one Xbox One exclusive that I wanted to play at the time, and that was Sunset Overdrive. Which, you may recall, got ported to PC last year. And even that was like, a mild want, as opposed to say, Bloodborne, or God of War. I mean, look at this year alone! Sony had God of War (amazing), Detroit (bad but at least entertainingly bad based on Drew Scanlon's playthrough that he streamed), Shadow of the Colossus remastered (all time fave!), and Spider-Man (literal dream game). And Xbox? I guess Forza sounded cool, and Sea of Thieves was a game some people enjoyed.

So, yeah, even if the PS5 is a horrible, consumer unfriendly mess, I'm sure that between that and an Xbox Two (because PCs are still too expensive, never mind that they aren't as dirt simple to use as consoles (not that I couldn't figure it out, but you know what I mean)), I'll get the PS5.

And thank you for saying it was great! The Moosies, I mean.

@ajayraz: Iconoclasts (on PS+ right now if you've got that (I can never remember if you do or not, maybe not?)) is really worth playing. It's not super long either, about ten-ish hours? And yeah, if you can look past the combat, Vampyr is worth playing (give the Quick Look a look if you want to take a gander at it, but even that, I feel like sells the game short a little).

Thank you for reading! Or at least skimming, I don't blame you if you skimmed a little.

@militantfreudian: Thank you for the compliment! And yeah, I do agree that they certainly could've gone farther with the effects of the illness in the game itself. If Far Cry 2 let you pass out from malaria mid gunfight a decade ago, this could've gone farther too. Though, I've never actually played Far Cry 2, so I'm just going based on what I've heard.

@tunaburn: It's definitely worth playing the epilogue, and I hope I didn't spoil what happens too much for you! There's still some really good character moments in there, for as much as I griped about it.
