    Yeah, Integrity and Faithlessness was one of the worst RPG's I've ever paid full price for. Got burned hard there and am reluctant to shell out for the new installment.

    Picked it up on Black Friday for about half price. About 15 hours in. Pretty big step up from SO5 so far.

    Pros:

    Combat is glorious.

    Graphics are smooth as fuck on performance mode.

    English VAs are only mildly terrible.

    Story is not anywhere near as cringe as IaF.

    Characters are all actually interesting people.

    Cons:

    The UI and UI text is inexplicably tiny, which makes playing with the far superior Japanese dub impossible as a non-speaker because you can't read the goddamn subtitles.

    The character model faces (particularly the girls) are absolute nightmare fuel. Even worse than the pink-wearing monstrosity from last game.

    The cutscene animations are janky af, which is just baffling given how good combat animations are.

    Damn, sounds good.

    But yeah, the character models are really goofy. And I say that as someone who likes the goofy characters in Xenoblade X.

    Here’s hoping my PC can run it at an acceptable frame rate.

    Elden Ring ran decently for me, aside from the minor hiccups at launch, so here's hoping my 1080 will still suffice. I am looking however to get a 3080 in a month or so, provided I can find the specific model I want, as it's becoming more taxing to play on 1440p without lowering the settings.

    I just want it to be good... but I'll probably get it even if every sign points to it being shit. I know a lot of the old Armored Core staff left to make Daemon X Machina (and then ran into funding issues because FromSoft curse sticks to you even after you leave) because there was no sign of 6 even being on the table back then so hopefully the current staff can still make a good AC game... and not just Souls but with robots.

    Yeah, the trailer really gave me Souls vibes with the cinders/ashes/fire thing they went for.

    I’ll be happy as long as they don’t make it overly online focused like they did with Verdict Day.

    The legendary edition remaster of the Mass Effect trilogy is on PS plus this month! The changes to ME1 are so good omfg. Like playing a totally different game.

    I actually made a Pansy Parkinson femShep that doesn't look like a potato.

    I played the LE before getting into ME proper (ME 5e ttrpg doesn't count) and I enjoyed all 3 games, with 2 and 3 tied for favorites. I've put 120hrs into the whole series so far (which isn't much, I know) and enjoyed both the story and gameplay.

    My only initial criticism was that my romance options as a lesbian woman were limited. Thank God for mods.

    Edit: Also, it might just be me but Shepard's legs looked really wierd in ME3 when she's wearing the dress.

    Can someone recommend me games I can play with one hand on PC? I had a minor operation on my non-dominant hand and I have to use it as minimally as possible, as it's stitched up and bandaged. I already have in mind Endless Legend and Endless Space 2.

    Vampire Survivors should be easily doable with only one hand. Beware, it's crack and gambling rolled into a 5 bucks package.
    (edit; not actually gambling lol)

    One Finger Death Punchand its sequel is an option. All it takes is left and right click to control it. It's a fun little kung-fu thing where stick figures fight in elaborate kung-fu battles you control via left and right click at the right times. There's not a whole lot to it, but it's a lot of fun. If you want a review on it, and some old youtube nostalgia:
