@Magician ah welp. I was hoping Disaster Report would at least have some actual survival elements to it. Too bad to here about Destiny Connects low scores, better check the reviews to figure out what's up.

EDIT: Looks like the game was controversial, it had reviews both at 6 and 8. Given it appears to be a 7th gen throwback RPG, that's no surprise.

This "leak" about Elden Ring sounds fairly likely to be true. Releasing in March/April, which looks quite likely because literally every Soulsborne game has released at that same time. Also apparently big trailer at Game Awards, sounds very plausible too, as the original Sekiro reveal was at the Game Awards. So they obviously have a relationship with the company.

@Dezzy That would be great, but dang it sounds like a pretty packed 3 months. 😅

They said that this is the biggest game they’ve ever made, so that’s exciting. Not sure how I fell about them returning to a dark fantasy setting again for this game. I guess there is only so many environments you can utilize for a Soulsborne game, but I’m hoping the world doesn’t just feel like DS and stands out a bit more.

Well, there should be some differences with the story, @NotTelevision .... Just being the same vague 'dark fantasy' leaves plenty of room I'm planning to get that for my XBox One, too

From Software is one of those rare developers where I'd buy a game without second thoughts so whatever they do, I'm game.

Problem is, I also need to save money for a trip next year to the UK. So yeah...

Please let me know before you send me a FC request, thanks.

I know right. Deciding between this, FF7, Cyberpunk and TLOU2, is insane. No way can anyone play all of those within their launch window, unless you have like 2 months of completely free time. Even that would be a struggle with a game like Cyberpunk.

I'll probably only manage 2 of those at launch, and the other 2 will get added to the backlog (at the front of the queue). TLOU2 is definitely getting added to the backlog. After that it probably depends on how Elden Ring turns out. If it's really just another Dark Souls but with a more open-world, then it might be the first game I play out of this list. (only because FF7 is episodic though. If that was the full game, it'd be my first priority)

@Dezzy If it is just open world DS, I also will still absolutely play it. Can’t wait for gameplay footage to see what they are up to.

NotTelevision

Dezzy

@NotTelevision

Yeah I'm curious how they'll manage it. I mean Dark Souls 1 is kinda open-world-ish already. It's just more closed and segmented environments.

They couldn't really make it completely open-world though because it would ruin the whole sense of progression, as well as the whole finding shortcuts and opening locked doors and gates. So I imagine what they mean is just that it will be like Dark Souls 1 but the individual areas themselves will be much bigger and more open. Dark Souls 3 already increased the physical scale of things from Dark Souls 1, so they probably just mean they're continuing on that trajectory even further.

I just hope that From Software considers returning to either the Lost Kingdoms or Otogi series of games. Like Square Enix with Final Fantasy, it feels as though all From Software has done are Soulsian games since the success of Dark Souls. Even the last Armored Core game was six years ago. And I know there's a petition for a Chomehounds sequel floating around the interwebs.

@Magician

They're just being financially smart to be fair. The Souls audience is very big and very devoted to that specific genre. They wouldn't just buy anything FromSoft make. Are they really going to go from 5 million sales a game to about 1 million sales maximum for an Armored Core game?

I bet that's what happened with Sekiro. I bet he wanted to do something quite different but then along the way, the business owners kept reminding him that it will sell a lot more if it's a souls-like game, and bit by bit pushed him more and more into that direction. It was published by Activision wasn't it. You know they don't give a rats ass about the creative side.

So something I literally just thought of that amused me. Because of the delay, Last of Us Part 2 is going to release on the PS4, right around E3, during its last major year. Which is pretty much exactly the same as when the Last of Us released on PS3. Like I think its only the difference of...maybe a month.

NB, demiguy, making LPs, still alive

@kkslider5552000 Good spot. Only a two week difference.

I personally hope that Ghost of Tsushima isn't pushed too far back in the year. July/August. But if it's late 2020, I may as well play it on PS5 if the launch games are interesting.

Finally got round to playing Sekiro.

Damnnnn this developer can make me enjoy pretty much anything. I had so little interest in the samurai setting before now (probably why I didn't buy it day 1 like I do with Dark Souls), but they really do make it interesting. I don't really care about the story though. I think they're better just sticking to the minimalist stories.

I love how they've now made 3 different series that are all quite different, and yet all feel like they're the same thing. They really should've just called Bloodborne and Sekiro, Dark Souls 3 and Dark Souls 5, and just build into the series the idea that the game systems and settings change a lot.

@Dezzy Yeah it’s an awesome game. Probably the best I’ve played this year. There is one region in that game that tops almost everything From has done to this point.

But it’s a hell of a beast to take down. Even more than the Souls games or Bloodborne for me.

NotTelevision

Dezzy

@NotTelevision

Which region?

I haven't found it any harder than Dark Souls/Bloodborne so far. Maybe it picks up though? I'm currently on the butterfly lady, who is the hardest boss so far (that judgement is including the fact that she has a second stage)

Yeah it's probably my GOTY so far. I didn't get round to playing RE2 yet though, so that might come out on top when I play it.

Honestly, the second boss in the Nioh alpha (the succubus, I think) was harder than any of the bosses I've ever fought in a Souls game.

Souls games aren't tremendously difficult combat-wise once the combat CLICKS. When I first started playing Bloodborne, my first Souls game, I died and died and died until... I didn't. Something clicked, and I got the rhythm of the action down, and I played through a good half of the game or so with relative ease (Bloodstarved Beast, or whatever it was called, really sucked until I got more aggressive; combat in that game is designed to reward aggressive play) before losing interest and moving on.

@Ralizah

I found Bloodborne to be the hardest so far too.

Maybe because I used a shield so much in Dark Souls though.

NotTelevision

@Dezzy Haha. Don’t take this the wrong way, but I’d rather not spoil anything for you. Curious to hear your thoughts when you get close to the end though.

The RE2 remake is really great. You’ll be able to get that one on a nice sale by the end of the year as well.

Added: See, I though DS1 was a lot more difficult than Bloodborne. The DLC bosses in BB are really challenging, but some of the things DS1 makes you do are ridiculous. Those two archers in AL, those poison dogs with the Capra Demon, and traversing Blighttown stand out.

Edited on by NotTelevision

@NotTelevision

The problem with DS1 was that it was the first game in the series I played, so it's hard to judge the difficulty, because a lot of it was just me getting used to the style of gameplay in the series.

I never had much trouble with the 3 examples you give. In fact I've played the game about 5 times and I don't think I've ever died on those archers. I was warned about them beforehand though, so knew vaguely what you had to do.

The Outer Worlds just arrived yesterday, and I'm excited to start it up this weekend. I got 5 other games I'm gonna celebrate the Halloween season with, though: Devil May Cry 5, Code Vein, Remnant: From the Ashes, Batman: Arkham Knight, and MediEvil. I got 'em all installed, I can hardly wait to get started!
