Does anyone have a PS VR? I’m thinking of getting the new one that is launching later this year if the rumoured $400 price mark is true. There’s also a rumour Half-Life Alyx will be ported to it, which would make it a slam dunk for me.

I don’t have the current one but definitely looking to get the new one. Figured this gen might as well be the gen I get into all the gimmicks.

I loved Spiderman as a game, not because it was super original or anything but it… worked? So many triple A games have so many issues and spiderman just did it right, it felt. Only low point is some of the boring stealth bits.

im not a dark souls person lol

When I think about how much I loved Spider-Man it’s because I’ve tried to wipe the Mary Jane missions from my memory lol

Just finished Elden Ring last night, might return for more optional bosses though. It was a great game but I definitely got fatigued and had to take breaks as it can get a bit repetitive. I prefer the more linear Soulsborne games but it was still a great trip. My total playtime came just under 90 hours but I explored most of the map and did a lot of optional content.

Started Breath of the Wild again. Haven't played it since the year it came out. Wow, this game is blowing me away all over again. It's not quite the same experience as playing it for the first time, but it's been long enough that it still feels pretty fresh. I can't believe how gigantic this world is. It's hard for me to believe that Nintendo made this after Skyward Sword lol.

It's too bad Nintendo consoles are always behind in graphics. I love Nintendo way more than Sony or Microsoft for their first party games, but still part of me is really wanting to see what Breath of the Wild 2 would look on on the PS5 or something.

Yep. Keep feeling this. Been playing Xenoblade 3 (goty) and just kept thinking how amazing some of these landscapes could look in 4K etc.

Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom comes out May 12th, stoked.

I hope it's not so open-ended this time, but that seems to be the way of gaming now. Also could do without the crafting. I don't want to snack on apples during boss fights or have my sword break.

I love BotW in some ways, but in other ways it annoys me

I hope it’s not a poor man’s Elden Ring. That game already did almost everything BoTW did but better. The main advantage (aside from better combat mechanics) was that exploration was actually rewarded with good items in ER, as opposed to defeating a generic village and getting 5 arrows from a chest.

The first time I played BotW I hated it, barely got a few hours in and then got rid of the game. I tried it again a year or two later and loved it.

I didn’t do a lot of the cooking and stuff and when I did I made basic shit just to get by. The weapons were annoying as fuck too but I solved that by using the slate, freezing and bombing the fuck out of everything until I got the master sword. I was angry about the master sword though, how it ran out of energy. That was bullshit.

Being a direct sequel I expect we will a lot of the same mechanics like crafting and weapon durability return. I’ve seen people suggest something like a blacksmith in game so if use a weapon you like and it breaks you can repair it. I wouldn’t mind that. I don’t mind crafting etc in rpgs.

This. More dungeons (not just 4!), less shrines. I’d also like to see more classic Zelda items like the hook shot. 

They were originally going to include the hook shot in the first game but thought it would make traversing the world too easy and people wouldn’t explore as much. Considering they are using the same map this time (excluding the sky portions and possible underground) that sense of exploring new areas doesn’t exist as much I hope they decide to include it.

They’ve actually been developing this for a longer period of time than the original Botw. I know Covid would’ve slowed things down but I can’t imagine this isn’t going to have a lot of new things to do. I’d say traditional dungeons returning is very likely.
