Need to play FF15 some time... Before 16 preferably.

Also, I wonder if the new twisted metal will adopt a BR more in addition to its original death match like proceedings.

I dunno man, I'm mixed. as in, I liked the game but I don't think it's essential. I don't think you 'need' to play it, but it's not gonna hurt you if you do. 

then again, I played the launch version, not the updated version with the Royal content and other many fixes. I hear it's better now. 

Honestly it was better even before the Royal edition released lol, it just added the patches and DLC into a neat package along with some extra content... I'd honestly love if the people who hated the game at/near launch would replay the game now just to see if their opinion will change. I feel the same way about people who still hate on XIII too, obviously it never got the same treatment with patches and new content, but it isn't even close to being as bad as some people will make it out to be... there's literally people out there who still refer to it as "The worst game ever made"... seriously? They must've played like six games in their life if that's what they think. Life of Black Tiger exists people... and I've played worse than that too!

Well, considering I'm planning on playing Skyward Sword again by the end of the year, I think it's fair to add Final Fantasy XIII to that list. I recently went back to play Mario 64 again and despite being pretty critical of it, I didn't hate it. I didn't love it, but it made me feel a lot better than I remembered. Same with Ocarina of Time on the 3DS, hated that game as a kid but now I kinda like it? I'm still extra critical of it because I think it's a 7/10 game getting 12/10 praise, so of course I think it's overrated, but I don't think it's BAD. Hell, I even went back and played through Dark souls II with some friends and didn't hate the experience. Still hate that game, but with friends at least you know you're suffering together. (all joking aside, it was weird, I enjoyed playing that game with friends, even if all we did the entire time was bitch about how bad it was and mock its terrible design choices throughout.)

As time goes on, I'm finding I want to like more things. I remain critical of companies and I certainly have my faves but like, I want things to do well. I want to see things succeed and be well liked even if I don't like them. I want to give games chances no matter how much people think I'm overly negative. The reality is that I don't like hating FFXIII or Dark Souls II or Skyward Sword. It feels bad. I want more things to enjoy, and re-writing my 'top games of all time' list recently made me realize just how much I love gaming as a whole. 



My Console Library:

PS5, Switch

PS4, PS3, PS2, PS1, WiiU, Wii, GCN, N64 SNES, XBO, 360

3DS, DS, GBA, Vita, PSP, Android

Top 6 this generation: 
Bloodborne, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, God of War, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dark Souls III, Red Dead Redemption II, Rock Band 4

I wish Megaton Musashi had an English version as it's about the last Japanese mech game I want to play on PS4. I also wish Blackwind had a physical on PS4. I don't have a PS5 but PS5 is getting one. So I got it before I own the console. Oh well.

You dont necessarily have to play XV before XVI.

None of the FF games are related to each other.

No one needs to play FFXV. Let that crap die. 16 is unrelated. XV is a mess.

XIII Trilogy is garbage but far from the worst games ever made or worst RPGs I ever played. Hell I played worse Square released RPGs that generation(Infinite Undiscovery is total shit). But the worst FF game that gen was the Wii Crystal Bearers. XV sucks and I played it launch and post updates. It did not change my views on it. Combat is still ass. The world design is still ass and making the game more linear as the story goes is just a bad design choice. Chapter 13 maybe better but still there. The story still sucks. It's a playable game yeah but why when so many better games even from Square are out on PS4 and Switch. It's not worse than Star Ocean V at least. Then again that game makes XV look like a great game in comparison.

Firesprite seems like they're being built to be a "mega" studio.



I really hope one of the games they're working on is a new WipEout game, but I'll take a new Twisted Metal too lol :P

Hope that doesn't make them juggling to many balls at once.

I might be wrong, but it's probably best to think of them as being like 4x Housemarques/Bluepoint Games.

They're not going after being like Naughty Dog or Sony Santa Monica.
