I cannot get past this boss fight in Hollow Knight. I've tried dozens of times. I hate this types of "git gud" games so I don't know what it being 2D would have made a difference. I am terrible at this.

I can't wait to play Tony Hawk! I am about 30 hours in to Persona 5 Royal, so I guess that's like a third of the game over.... SO it will be a long time before I move on. I suppose I will be playing RE5 next because I haven't played it in a while and it should be late October by the time P5R is finished. Loving it though!

Me last night: "I'm sad Hyrule Warrior's is more than likely a one time thing. I hope one day we can get Hyrule Warriors 2."

Nintendo: "I gotchu fam."

Me:" WHAT IN THE HOLY FU-"

I absolutely LOVED Hyrule Warriors so this is legit one of the best things to happen to me in recent years.
I'm so hyped for this game. AND Nintendo is hands on with the game.

I hope most of not all the other characters return.
LET ME SEE LANA and CIA AGAIN THEY WERE GREAT CHARACTERS.

So I confused OOT 3D.... As adult Link I beat the Water Temple first so that I could get the longshot and have more general access to the map, then Forest Temple so I could return to child, and then I beat the Spirit Temple (for those unaware, this is The WAY out of order). Now, my game thinks I've beaten all of the dungeons because I don't have any dots on my map indicating dungeons I need to beat still, and can't trigger the Shadow Temple cutscene lol. I'm sure it will trigger when I beat other dungeons, I just found the entire situation pretty funny.

I am not about 40 hours in to Persona 5 Royal and it feels like I am still in the beginning of the game. Loving every second of it. But man, is it a lengthy experience. Probably my favorite game of the year up until now.

I am just ITCHING to play Cyberpunk. Like, I think the last time I wanted to play a game this bad was when I had to wait for Death Stranding. 2 months and counting I guess, what'd be awesome is if they make a PS5/Cyberpunk bundle. Count me in.

As much as the setting, story and general atmosphere excites me, I will be cautious about Cyberpunk at first. Mostly because I'm still not entirely sold on first person games, so paying full launch price for something that I'm not usually into would be a bad idea.

I mean, what's the point in having access to the most INSANE customization tools for your character there is, if you're not going to see yourself anyway?!

Timed mechanics in games are up there with QTE as among my pet hates in a game. Don't give me seconds to figure out what to do and then reset because I'm not fast enough... There is almost nothing that will make me rage quit more than when I am frustrated with game mechanics.

Fable 2 was horrendous for this - I love the game but the flit switches are horrendous. My character, maxed out in all relevant stats, is so lumbering and slow that when these highly irritating switches turn up (which can alternate in terms of required move to progress and also location), it takes too many attempts to get it right. Often the sequence is soooooo long that I am almost at the very end when one tiny delay with the movement of my character resets the entire puzzle and I am required to do it again. For a title that is often mocked for being easy, this is utterly frustrating.

If they simply MUST be included then at least give the option of recognising that someone just isn't getting it and offer an alternative to move forward... The main story should not be dependent on some stupid puzzle for progression. Make it optional, put in some sort of penalty... Whatever. But don't make it game breaking.

I deliberately pick easy games to play. If I wanted hair-tearing irritation, I would be playing Dark Souls...

I am very excited for Cyberpunk as well. I also actively dislike first person camera unless I am playing an FPS, but I think with a game of this magnitude, I will definitely be ready to suck it up and play the game. Don't know if it's a Day 1 buy for me or not yet. Depends on how many games I have in my backlog.

Right now the PS5 and Cyberpunk are both day 1 buys for me. And if I can pull it off I'm going to buy 2 PS5s.... So I'm gonna be broke in November lol.

I've never played a CD Projekt Red game before. The Witcher has never interested me nor have RPGs in general, but something about Cyberpunk has just really caught my attention. I was intrigued ever since the first reveal trailer waaaaay back when, and even though I'd prefer open-world games like this be third-person, I've never had any qualms about playing first-person video games and it honestly seems like a refreshing choice here.

The world they've created is so tight knit that it actually feels like a more personal experience that was crafted with first-person in mind as opposed to a game like GTA that was already designed a specific way and just added a first-person view later. The sense of scale when you look up at the skyscrapers is amazing and makes you feel so small, especially when everything else is so alive and close together.

It's not quite a day one purchase for me, but it's definitely one of the first major games I look forward to playing on the Series X.

CDPR truly are special developers. I played The Witcher 3 and I can definitely see the work they put into it, but it was never interesting to me. When I played it I liked the side quests more than the main quests, and overall couldn't give really care for that game's world or characters as none of it appealed to me.


While the same is true of Cyberpunk to a lesser extent, I think I might give that game a shot just because I at least know with CDPR I can get a game.
Although now that it's mentioned I don't think I played a First Person open world except Dying Light before Cyberpunk

God of War Ragnarök. 2021 only on PS5.

I’ll have to find a way to somehow convince the wifey that we need a PS5

I predict that game will get delayed into 2022. That announcement reeked of desperation the way Metroid Prime 4 did when Nintendo announced it with nothing more than a logo and we still haven't seen it.

Yeah I had the same thoughts, maybe a short vid or something would have been nice. Esepecially if you consider that they havent built it from scratch like they did with the previous one so yeah, should have had something more.

Well see.

Yeah, I assume Final Fantasy 16 and God of War Ragnarok will both be 2022. But that will be a hell of a year for me if that's true. Especially if the RE4 REmake comes out in the same year.
