I know it's a bit bad for the ones who actually bought the game and have poor eyesight but maybe this is a necessary evil to clamp down on sales that is heavy on the narrative side.



If someone asks why I'm using an alt account, CGI and Truckusaurus got me a temp approval until I get my iconic and notorious "kurasakiichimaru" account back. :p

Forgot your tin-foil hat?

They most likely did it because developers sit in front of monitors instead of 15 feat from their TVs like seemingly some players do.



I guess Xenoblade Chronicles X was guilty of that too then ... c'mon man ...

There's an option in the settings to increase their size. It's the fault of the Youtubers and streamers for not properly setting up before their videos imo, barely any of them checked the options menu and fixed it before playing.



Wouldn't it be the same if you're watching it? I mean as long as you set the video to the highest resolution and watch in full screen, it should be the same as the original game image, barring a slight drop in quality.

I mean, surely people couldn't care that much about Twitch chat... right..?

This was patched in later. The patch with the options for journal text size just came like today.
