I'll be playing it on my Xbox1 in an hour and a half. A friend wants me to stream it on Twitch, even. :)

Rented (yes that's still a thing here) The Walking Dead game. Honestly kind of split on it. It has its good moments but is extremely slow paced, and I have a feeling its going to end with a cliffhanger, which will be annoying.

I'll be following people's opinions on Type-0 here, as I've been trying to decide on whether to go for that one. I want to give it a go, but I have a real love/hate relationship with Final Fantasy sometimes...

I had played type 0 before it got announced for localization by SE.

In my opinion it's the best FF in a long time.

I'm a little, ok a lot out of the loop. Is Type O available on PS3 and is it online only? Please say yes and no in that order. lol

Yeah, I was pretty happy. Shame I can't afford to go try to make them buy me a PS4 too.

I actually got my Xbone in a summer radio giveaway last year. The funny thing about that is that I was actually trying to be a cheapskate and win a $10 ticket to their 80s throwback cover band festival.

The really sad thing is how much more satisfied I've been with the Xbone over my PS4, which I had to scrimp and save for. The controller for that thing is amazing, and even works with steam. The whole having exclusives worth playing thing is nice too.

I had played type 0 before it got announced for localization by SE.

That's an endorsement I can get behind. Out of curiosity, what did you think of the first XIII? Also, hey Saint, been way too long!

Personally I really didn't enjoy 13 much at all. I didn't really like the combat that much, the story felt fairly lackluster and at pretty limited in scope and the only character I liked was Sazh. Overall, FF13 really disillusioned me on Square-Enix's quality pretty heavily. They have released some games i'd consider quality since then, but i've been wary of buying from them since.

Edit: Not to mention i've been rather unhappy with some of squares tactics and/or localization efforts (Or lack thereof) for some of their games. but that doesn't specifically tie into 13.

Spoony Bard!

Believe it or not, I personally really enjoyed XIII. I understand why so many people didn't, but there was something about that game's pacing and setting that made me unable to give up on it. I love those kinds of magic-fused tech settings.

Speaking of, anyone else here excited about the new Torment game coming out set in the Numenera unimultiverse? I am so pumped about that, Numenera is easily in my favorite tabletop games.

Heeeeeey. if square doesn't want the west to get Dragon quest 7 on the 3DS with Nintendo offering to publish it for 'em, that's on Square! Same with not giving us Type 0 for 4 years :x.

If someone likes 13, that's cool. It's just not my game. I found a game like Xenoblade Chronicles to be a much better FF game than 13, was all. I have Numenera backed, but I admit i'm gonna remain wary of it till I have it in my hands. (Metaphorically speaking as i'm getting a digital copy)

Xenoblade was great, I'm considering getting a New 3DS to play it again.

I have ridiculously high hopes for Torment, especially with Fallout's Brian Fargo at the helm.

It's funny. Final Fantasy 13 basically turned me off of Japanese markets nearly wholesale. I still buy a few here and there, but they're ones no one would dispute were crafted specifically for Western audiences.

I'm not disparaging anyone for enjoying any game, but 13 was a big spoonful of disillusionment. Kind of makes me see the Japanese market as the weakest runner in the video game markets.

Type-0 is holding up to be amazing for the few minutes I've played.  A friend of mine finished the XV demo and had little to no complaints so I am looking forward to playing it to completion later tonight.

I know very little about XV so far, when it comes to RPGs, I try to ignore them beyond review scores, since so many sites are just terrible about spoilers. I know I'll give it a chance unless the reviews just tank, so I don't really want much more.

At the start of XV the game is a little odd, once you get used to the combat and that you have to camp to get your xp totaled up and levels gained the game becomes a little bit easier.

Talking in this Thread is really giving me a Final Fantasy bug. I think I may need to cave and give Type-0 a shot on payday. I've got a HUGE overtime bonus coming in, I need to decide how to spend it.
