Finally bought Final Fantasy XV, and... while fun, it really should have been an original IP that has an occasional nod to Final Fantasy.

It doesn't feel like a Final Fantasy game at all. More like a Kingdom Hearts game with all the Disney and FF elements removed. Everything, from the gameplay, music, character design, and story so far has all screamed Kingdom Hearts to me. Given the amount of creative staffing overlap between this and KH3, I really can't say I'm surprised in the slightest to say any of that.

Also the character names are just ridiculous, like someone just started chucking words through an online English-to-Latin translator and at the end of it all went "BEHOLD! I HAVE CREATED NAMES!"

It's a fun as hell game, but... yeah... just not really worthy of the once-vaunted Final Fantasy regency.

I think it should have either stayed as Versus XIII or become its own thing entirely -- it feels like too much a compromised product.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

@Lumi: Blame Tetsuya Nomura for the lol names. He is fail at naming characters.
It will never be Versus 13 since it was rotting in development hell. FFXV should be another IP, that I can agree with.

It's final fantasy in name only. All of the screens shots told me this long before its release.

Oh don't worry. XV is big in Japan. They're churning out XV goods which includes an eau de toilette line for the 4 main characters.
And finger puppets! (I have to have those) http://movic.jp/shop/r/r102870_hy

My bro and his roommate are also stoked about this game. From all that they've seen it's nothing but solid.

Welp, now it's Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
And... well...

GODS BLESS BISEXUAL SPARTAN BICEPS

I MEAN KASSANDRA.

I haven't crushed this hard on a video game character since Tali Zorah in the Mass Effect games.
Back when those were relevant *cough*

Like, dear gods Odyssey is basically The Witcher 3. Starring Wonder Woman. Who is relentlessly, aggressively bi.

And puts the SASS in asSASSin.

And the map and gameplay are basically everything I ever wanted Metal Gear Solid V to be yet wasn't, so years later I finally have my fix and I no longer mourn the passing of Metal Gear.
Ubisoft done good with this one.

It's pretty much perfect.

How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

According to the site, it has the freshness of lemon grass and lime with strong woodsy scent and musk.

Red Dead Redemption 2.

I was a huge fan of RDR- one of my picks for best game of last generation. Naturally, I was really hyped for RDR2... but after about ten hours in, I'm actually not liking it at all. The production values are insane, and the landscapes are probably the most amazing I've ever seen in a video game, but the actual game itself feels too passive. I feel like the game never requires me to make any meaningful decisions or tests my skills. I feel like most of the time I'm watching a cutscene, listening to dialogue, pushing the action button to advance the mission, and little else. Even the action parts, such as shooting, feel passive because the auto aim is so incredibly accurate. Even though I'm pushing buttons, it feels like hours pass without me having actually done anything... it feels like watching a western movie that occasionally requires you to push buttons to further advance the super linear missions.

I don't know if I'm going to give this game any more of my time. Ten hours should be enough for the game to pick up, but its still not clicking with me. Oh well.

Picked up Fallout 4 GOTY, forgot how good the game was, as usual to my recent activities, minimal mods.

I am known for modding the HELL out of my Bethesda games (#ModItTillItCrashes for life!), but a minimalist approach is always good to get back in the swing of things.

Just don't swear off the ceaseless hedonistic orgy of lore-friendly but non-canon weapons, power armor, quests, retextures, companions, and Fat-Man-shells-replaced-with-baby-Shaun we call mods entirely.

Don't deny yourself life's little pleasures too long.
