  1. Did anyone else get a preorder in for the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Special Edition? I wasn’t even planning on trying due to how much of a disaster Nintendo’s previous attempt was, but I ended up checking the site earlier anyway. I’m glad I did because that’s pretty much my most anticipated game of the year and I wanted that Special Edition so bad. That and Pokémon Scarlet/Violet
  2. #30: Cris Tales (PS4) This is a game that’s been on my radar for a few years now. I remember being blown away by the demo due to it’s unique art style and the unique weapons that a couple of the characters used. I ended up deciding to wait awhile before potentially buying it though due to the poor reviews both from critics and people who bought the game themselves. I’m glad I did, because it’s available to download through PS Plus Extra. I got a 1 month trial and decided to make that the main game I’d focus on. After playing it for myself, I feel that Cris Tales while flawed, is better than what people give it credit for and I feel that more people should give it a shot if they have a subscription to PS Plus or Xbox Game Pass. While the loading times are a major issue along with there being a loading screen before and after every battle, it makes up for it by delivering a unique RPG experience that delivers some of the most beautiful visuals I’ve ever seen in an RPG, along with having a unique take on time mechanics that has the main character Crisbell being able to see the past, present and future simultaneously rather than simply traveling through time which has been done so many times in media. If you have played and loved classic rpgs such as FF6 and Chrono Trigger, I think it’s worth giving a shot. The story doesn’t live up to those games, but I found it mostly enjoyable nevertheless. I don’t regret making Cris Tales my 30th platinum.
  3. I wish there was an option for “undecided” because that’s where I am currently. I need to see more of the list from the premium tier before I make a choice of doing a 3 month plan in that tier because right now, the current list of classic games is embarrassingly underwhelming.
  4. You do realize the whole reason the Switch has been such a monumental success is because it’s a hybrid console right? The fact that the switch has outsold the PS4’s lifetime sales in the US should show you people love and want the flexibility of being able to play either in handheld or on the TV. You’re in the minority in that regard, and that’s not going to change. Now the joycons on the other hand yes there’s plenty of ways those can be improved, and at least with the drift part need to be improved.
  5. Yes it’s so disappointing how horribly Sony has handled distributing the PS5 compared to how Valve has handled getting the Steam Deck… I just got my 512 GB Steam Deck the other day thanks to them having real reservation spots while the PS5 is still impossible to get thanks to Sony catering to scalpers…
  6. More like $13 too high lol! They should be paying people to play that dumpster fire…
  7. So apparently Hogwarts Legacy is also coming to Switch and it’s NOT a cloud version. Gotta say, I never saw that one coming.
  8. I know it’s multiplatform, but man I really hope I can get lucky and get a PS5 this year and play that version. I’m so hyped for his game!
  9. #29: Star Wars Episode I: Racer Here’s a blast from the past! I remember playing the old PC version of this game during my childhood. I remember having fun with it, but after playing this version today, I also realize just how much I forgot about regarding this game. I’m glad I was able to revisit an old game and get a quick plat out of it.
  10. I’ve been hoping that Star Wars Episode I: Racer would eventually go lower in price in one of these sales, but I’ve finally decided to just forget about it and buy it. For me it’s both nostalgic and a quick and easy platinum.
  11. I just saw the trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. I’m pumped up for gen 9 because the visuals basically look like a modern Legends Arceus. My only gripe is with the starters. First impressions about them is that this is the worst starting trio of all time. The fire starter is easily the ugliest starter ever and it looks like a bad fake mon that some fan made. The water type starter design is the definition of lazy, it’s literally a duck with a hat. The grass one is the only one that I don’t hate, but even that one is “meh” to me. For the first time I’m strongly considering boxing my starter.
  12. #28: Marvel’s Spider-Man I’ve had this game for a few years now, but for some reason I kept putting it off. I love Marvel and Spider-Man, but for some reason it wasn’t until now that I got around to playing it. Anyway, this game’s biggest strength is easily the effortless web swinging around NYC that Insomniac managed to pull off. Combat was also fun for the most part, though fighting the same type of enemies throughout the game did start to wear on me by the end. The story was fantastic, with the best version of Doc Oc that I’ve ever seen. The biggest issue I had with the game was easily the MJ and Miles stealth sections. I absolutely hate forced stealth sections in games where getting caught results in a game over or in this case a mission failed. Thankfully the checkpoints are generous so it never felt like torture. Other than that though, I had a blast with Marvel’s Spider-Man, and I’m glad to be able to check this one off my backlog.
  13. I’ve completed Pokémon Legends Arceus. This is the most fun I’ve had with a Pokémon game since Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky, or as far as mainline games go, since Emerald. Gotta give Game Freak a ton of credit, sure the graphics and performance issues have been run into the ground at this point, but there hasn’t been this much effort put into making a great Pokémon game since Black and White 2. Being a Pokémon fan had been rough over the last 10 years or so, but my faith in Game Freak at least for now has been restored. Since I now have the Shiny Charm, I’ll still play Legends Arceus from time to time attempting to get more and more shinies due to how easy it is to get them nowadays.
  14. Xenoblade Chronicles 3! That’s all that needs to be said! JUST KIDDING! Seriously though, that’s the only new announcement that caught my eye. Sure I enjoyed the trailer for the Fire Emblem Warriors 3 Houses game, but I honestly is it really worth picking up when you can always just play 3 Houses? I will admit I was happy to see that Mario Strikers is getting a new release for the first time since the GameCube era. I know there’s plenty of people who have been wanting a new Strikers game for many years, and I’m glad for them, even though I personally probably won’t be getting it. The only thing besides Xenoblade 3 that I know I’ll be getting is the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe pass. I knew Nintendo wouldn’t be making Mario Kart 9 given that 8 Deluxe continues to sell in the millions even though it’s been nearly 5 years since it’s come out. That game has pretty much become Nintendo’s GTA V in terms of being a continuous never ending cash cow.
  15. I never would’ve thought that this would happen when the season started. I’ve been waiting for this moment since I started watching football, the moment that the Bengals would be in the Super Bowl. Only one more win to win it all! WHO DEY!
  16. On a scale of 1-10, how much are you guys looking forward to Pokémon Legends Arceus? I’m at a 10 personally!
  17. #27: Virginia The only reasons I bought this game are because it’s currently on sale for $1.99 and I wanted something quick to plat, along with seeing the meta critic score. I’ll be honest here, I don’t get how anyone who calls themselves a video game critic could possibly have given this game higher than a 50/100, and that’s being generous. Terrible visuals, a nonsensical last 10-15 minutes or so, and no voice acting in a game that would’ve benefited greatly from that are the main reasons that this is the worst game I’ve gotten a plat for so far. I can see why this game is on sale by as much as it is. Didn’t expect much to begin with, and I can say for sure that I got what I paid for.
  18. What Joe Burrow was able to do tonight vs the Titans despite getting sacked 9 TIMES? Unreal! The defense shutting down Derrick Henry and picking off Tannehill 3 times? Clutch! The AFC Championship Game next week will be one for the ages, regardless of who wins the Chiefs Bills game tomorrow! I just hope the Bengals come out on top! WHO DEY!
  19. #26: Planet Coaster (PS4) This type of game brings back fond memories of my childhood. There was a time when I’d spend hours upon hours playing the Roller Coaster Tycoon games, not realizing where the time had gone in the process. I was hooked on those tycoon style simulation games, and I thought that they’d just continue to be a part of gaming for years to come. What I didn’t expect was that RCT3 would be the last big release the series would have (other than the garbage microtransaction filled abominations that have come out since). When I first heard about Planet Coaster being a spiritual successor to the RCT series (mainly 3), I knew I had to play it. I don’t do PC gaming much anymore, and even though I bought it on Steam at a really low price, I knew I wanted to play the Console Edition. While it took awhile to get used to how things work in this game compared to the RCT series, I still had a nostalgic blast. Whenever I manage to get a PS5, I’ll definitely get the plat in that one as well.
  20. Congrats on the milestone! 1. Myst 2. 1995
  21. FINALLY! The Bengals have finally ended the playoff win drought! For the first time in my life, I can celebrate a playoff win! WHO DEY!
  22. Steam Deck will be changing that narrative pretty soon Also for OP, stick with both if there’s games on PC you aren’t planning on playing on PS4/5 or for games that aren’t available on PS4/5.
  23. I went into today hoping that the Bengals would keep up with the Chiefs, but expecting the AFC North race to come down to week 18, but thanks to Jamarr Chase’s historic game (most receiving yards by rookie in a single game in NFL history), and Burrow still being on fire, they’ve won the North. Next step, end the playoff win drought.
  24. You’re A Winner! Win a Go Karts race while driving the kart
