    After a wait that ended up being much longer than I had even anticipated, I'm finally getting comcast to come hook me up on Tuesday. When that happens, I'll not only be able to game online should I choose, but I'll be able to update my ps4 for the first time since August of 2017, update 8 games for the first time ever, and get dlc for a few others that I've been waiting on. Almost like getting a bunch of new titles.

    I'll also update the ps3 for the first time in four years. Hopefully it doesn't melt, lol.

    It's worth it. So far, this is the true DQ8 successor I've waited 12 years to play.

    Playing Yakuza 0 on PC...very fun game with great story line only 19.99 and plays like a 60 dollar title.. Its an RPG but more than that kind of hard to explain but I am very happy with the purchase.

    So, I reloaded FFXV today. At first, there was a 5 GB update, and I thought sure sounds good......but then the 29gb one came next, lol. I haven't gotten into it to check things out and start over yet.

    So, apparently I didn't pay attention before and didn't realize that Sony now requires you to buy a PS+ membership to play any game online. Screw that. I'll keep doing things the way I have been.

    Some stuff is still free like Fortnite and Warframe, but the majority is locked behind the subscription.

    the PS1 Classic doesn't look that good. No analog sticks and they've only announced a quarter of the games.

    I agree. Pretty lame. And most of the games they've talked about aren't good. The difference between that and the Nintendo consoles is that Nintendo dominated and controlled the market in those days, and all the best games were theirs. When Sony started, it became a lot more third party stuff.

    Sony absolutely dominated the market during the 5th(PS1) and 6th(PS2) console generations. PS1 games that should be on this thing are Castlevania Symphony of the Night, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 1-3, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Gran Turismo, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon. Some of these games have recently remakes so they might not be included for that reason.

    Edit: forgot Tomb Raider and both Legacy of Kains (Soul Reaver being the better of the two)

    Lol, the funny thing is that I was exclusively a Sony guy through that whole time and never played a single one of those

    Holy cow, you missed out. Symphony of the Night is one of my favorite PS1 games, Konami completely ripped off Super Metroid and the result was magical. PS1 also had Square on board, so in addition to FF7 there was FF8 and FF9, FF Tactics, Xenogears and Vagrant story to name a few.

    I've never been into fast paced action games. The FF games have always been a staple of mine, going back to the NES. I moved to the PS1 in part for FF7. I didn't play Xenogears, but I did play Xenosaga 1 & 2. Otherwise, in the PS1 & PS2 days, I was big into sports games, GTA and clones, and Gran Turismo. My wife was big into Kingdom Hearts, Okami, Psychonauts, and Katamari. And that's when we started playing the Lego games, starting with Star Wars.

    I picked up Dragon Quest this week, and its fantastic. I've played 10 hours in the last three days, and just got to the point where I have three followers. The choice to go with the anime style graphics was fantastic, and they've done wonders with it. Best I've ever seen with the cell shading, and everything is 3D and has weight.

    For me, its a ton of nostalgia, bringing me back to when I first started playing RPG games 30 years ago, but on today's consoles with updated graphics and sound. I've read reviews where people don't like the turn based style and find it foreign, but for me its like putting on a comfortable old jacket that fits the same as it always has. I'm really enjoying it, but I'm trying to figure out how to gain more control over the companions in battle.

    EDIT: Figured out while exploring the menu how to take full control of companions. They really burried it!

    Finished Spider-Man and got the Platinum trophy - my first one ever. Also playing some Overwatch during the Halloween event.
