So, I confess: I only just played Undertale for the first time this month. Uh. yeah that hurt my soul.

In which way?

Undertale is pretty good, the soundtrack is amazing.

Fortunately I'm a nice girl and I don't kill anyone so I got the pacifist ending (not TRUE pacifist, but 0 EXP without befriending everyone), and that final stretch to the final boss just wrecked me and I don't know why. 



My Console Library:

PS5, Switch

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

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

I also try not to kill anyone because when I played it I already knew it would be real sad if I did.

But I ended up killing Toriel because I thought it was mandaroty after trying not to kill her for like 7 turns, lol, so I also didn't get true pacifist.

Will you try genocide? Sans fight looks pretty hard, never tried it tho, too sad to kill those virtual chars, lol.



Why is GoW5 not winning the pool by a landslide, btw?
Only GotG contender announced up until now.

I did that, too...but I hated it so much I started over with a guide to un-kill Toriel. It's sort of unfair that it tricks you; I was deliberately trying to get her down to 10-20% health before sparing her and it was just like 'ooops, killed her in one hit!'. NOT FAIR. Mean game.

lol, I also tried to go back but she already remembers you killed her once.

I could delete the game and save and download again, but here, too much trouble, lol.

Played it on PS4.

We have a lot of FF fans here. I'd be surprised it if was the most anticipated PS exclusive on VGC.

I'm was kinda in the middle.. For once we might actually have a decent mainline FF, which is what I'm excited for (no puns intended). On the other, GoW (2018) was outstanding and the next title will be too. I'm a fan of both..though slightly leaning towards GoW side myself as its one of my favorite series, and it falls in the 'consistently good' line of games. Its just release dates I'm sketchy about.

I mean FF is a huge franchise, but ever since 12 (or 10 for some) it has greatly fallen from its top tier spot as a series, and GoW is on an all time high with GoW4 being considered by many (me included) the best game from the past gen.

I honestly didn't expect FF16 hype to be bigger, well, they didn't show us GoW5 at all up until now tho, so maybe we need a teaser/gameplay reveal.



Idd.. everything from FFXII onward was more miss than hit. I'd say the quality droped quite considerably from 9, since the merger with Enix. And I think the series lost a bit of its magic since Hironobu Sakaguchi left (or most likey fired) tbh. Maybe FFXVI will bring that back with a good old fashioned story, more mature setting and new gameplay. Mixed with the usual FF familiarity we're accustomed to - like its orchestral score, reoccurring characters etc.

Saying that, SE have made great strides lately on the FF side of things, this gen, starting with FFVIIR. And 16 is looking quite promising with the FFXIV director Hiroshi Takai at the helm it should be good.

But yeah Santa Monica Studios has been on fire and has been getting better and better. Outside of GoW: Ascension which was more of a filler piece the revamped GoW (4) absolutely smashed it. I still think we have more FF fans on here but like you said we've seen a trailer for 16 and not for GoW so that could also be a factor. I'm hyped for both though I'm not expecting them anytime soon lol. Hopefully they will show Ragnarok in July at E3 or Sony's own event.

An early prediction but I'm gonna say; GoW:Ragnarok will be a graphics powerhouse, and will look a gen above anything we've seen thus far.

PS5 and Switch in the UK are up considerably last month (Feb) on GamesIndustry.

"Over 200,000 games consoles were sold in the UK during February.

The latest data from GfK shows it was a bumper month for the console market, driven by an influx of new PS5 stock and a boost in Switch sales driven by the launch of the new Mario game: Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury."


"It's been a bumper year already for console sales, with 373,426 devices sold so far this year (unweighted figures). Based on GfK's retail panel, console game sales are up 184.4% in units so far this year, and up a massive 310.4% in revenue. Of course, this is partially driven by the launch of the new Xbox and Playstation consoles, but Nintendo Switch is also enjoying a stronger start to the year. Nintendo Switch console sales are up 81% year-to-date. "

There are murmurs of a considerable stock incoming to Amazon UK this month too. Get your trigger fingers ready if you're on the old blighty and haven't got one yet.
