  1. Little shoutout thanks to the people that posted about Eiyuden Chronicles. I would have missed it completely otherwise and it is great. Good to see it on Gamepass and happy to throw the devs some $ on PS too. Thanks
  2. It is definitely something to seriously consider. I have both Series X and PS5 and moved a fair amount of my time over to Xbox in the last year. I really enjoy the system. I don’t fan boy to any one system as I am interested in getting the best experience I will enjoy on the games I want to play, which is basically all of them. Ultimately I agree with you the games are much the same between both and if exclusives matter you will buy both anyway. Judging by the number of plats you have you enjoy your gaming so go on treat yourself. Some things I have found Pros of the XsX - on a good 4K display LG C1 or equivalent there is a noticeable improvement over PS5 graphically - smart resume is very useful if you move between multiple games - the XsX rarely reverts to a black loading screen like PS5 sometimes does. Immersion breaking and surprisingly occurs more in mid to indie games but also triple A. (Yes I play the games often on both systems lol) - Gamepass. This can save you a lot of money even in the short term. The challenge will be where you want to play a certain game - if platinum or trophies matter over achievements - a first party “elite” controller that may not have the gimmicks of the duel sense but is more practical with wider array of options/setups and for me preferred in the long run - automatic save transfers from the cloud. This is huge if you have multiple systems and move between them. It is quicker and more streamlined than PlayStations approach - if you like replaying games it opens up a whole new stack Cons - different controller layout / feel - IT DOESN’T HAVE TROPHIES seems silly I know but I let that hold me back for awhile. If it is a concern you really have to judge how you play. If you tie the meta game into justifying time then it might be a waste buying the X as you won’t really use it. But if you can find a happy medium or are more interested in the games without the constraints of the meta game then it’s not an issue. - Time. If you figure out a way to get through everything on 1 let alone 2 systems please let me know 😂 Ultimately I’d recommend giving it a go. It is the only way you will really find out what sort of gamer you are. And heck you can still earn a shitload of platinums on PS and spend your fair share of time on the X if you want. Happy Gaming
  3. Good to hear, I didn't realize you had done P5. I am sure you will enjoy the new content in Royal there is some serious long and great story content in there. Looking forward to your thoughts on Strikers, I am still on the fence.
  4. APRIL UPDATE A better month for spending control with not many games that interest me coming out over the next few months. Probably a good thing as every time I turn on the consoles I am amazed at how many great games are awaiting attention. The Golden Sale is very good on PSN at the moment and I expect a few pickups in May but probably another slower month. I set a goal of spending 10k max this year on gaming and I feel like I am still coming in around target. If I avoid the temptation to upgrade any more equipment should be good. We shall see. Hope everyone is finding some fun games, there are plenty out there.

  5. Great choice, Sakuna is a real hidden gem. I have no idea why I bounced of it. Looking forward to spending some more time with it so thankyou. I am not sure exactly how these call outs go so I will just call you out @Sanevin if that is ok. Our profiles are actually pretty similar, we both have a stack of amazing games at 0% or there abouts. I was tempted to pick Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris, Fuga Melodies of Steel or Final Fantasy XIV from your profile as all are awesome games but I am going to settle on Persona 5 Royal for your callout. I hope you didn't hate it when you abandoned it and that you can find enjoyment in one of my fav PS4 games too.
  6. Yep I am sure it would be on sale soon. At least one positive for the graphics is that I can't tell any difference between the PS5 / PS4 version so it is kinda fun going back and doing the dailies on the PS4 version till I get the plat
  7. Yep I think most of the hate is just based on the graphics. If you like Nier and the paintbrush sort of artstyle you won't have a problem. I would probably hold off a little longer before starting they are making changes weekly now to the balancing and have some level design patches coming through in the next few weeks I believe. It is great to see they are really committing to working on it to improve it. Guess we shall see what happens down the track
  8. Lol, impressive it would have been a rough listen getting that far 😂 I am pretty sure this isn't the purpose of this thread but it does make a great catch-all for buying suggestions and anything that slips past me on the store so I appreciate it
  9. Update: Babylon's Fall PS5 100 + 61 - 29.43 = 131.57 (Had 3 bronze trophies before start - 4% completion) Hopefully I did that right, I wasn't sure I would get any points in this so nice to be off the mark. Really enjoyed this game and look forward to seeing what they can do to improve/save it over the coming months.

  14. MARCH UPDATE Another great month of games and some hardware too. I feel like I am starting to setup nicely now which seems about time as we are well into the gen of consoles. The expansions were a must and wonderful and the Switch a worth upgrade on the base model. Knockin up the list now I realized I have quite a few of these still to start. See what April brings.
