    All things Yakuza! - Start with Yakuza Zero

    That'd be a pity, 5 is pretty damn good. You just need to pace yourself with Yakuza, I find.

    You really haven't. It's all about the story and the humour, don't worry about all that combat discussion guff, NEG is way too into it.

    Fair enough, I know the game really resonated with some people, I went into it wanting to be bowled over and just wasn't. I probably got over-hyped.

    If you insist, but I really doubt anyone in reality found it out by themselves.

    Truth be told I found it all a bit dull too, but it was very well received as a charmingly written old-school style RPG.

    Yeah, I don't want to be too down on them, I did really enjoy their games. I made my peace with not having as much influence on the outcomes as I had first hoped.

    Great post, @Unofficial Who, totally agree. I'd also add that they got stuck on a particular type of choice - the 'two bad options'. It's powerful if used sparingly, but it just kept coming back. GoT was basically all this. Their other trope was the 'seemingly good choice has bad results'. In the end I was able to have a little fun with the whole process. For example, in Batman, Alfred gets himself into a spot of bother and you have to make a lot of quick decisions to supposedly save him. Now, given you know Alfred pretty much isn't going to die under any circumstances, I felt free to pick the most terrible option each time as if I was trying to get him killed. And the 'sounds nice is nasty' rule applies in reverse too, so the outcome was no worse in the end.

    I can't get over that none of the games made money, yet they made so many! Maybe it was to maintain the illusion of forward movement, getting loans or funding based off the conveyor belt of new franchises. Living hand to mouth, never saying no to anything, and pumping out episode after episode to get a small injection of cash and keep their heads above water. Weird thing is, even with all that the games were pretty good!!

    If you think about it, it's pretty weird you can play the free games for free, but have to pay the extra charge to pay the paid for games. Not unique to Nintendo, I know, and it's better than having to pay for everything, but it makes you feel like a mark somehow...

    Is price point the same thing as price? Or is there some subtlety in the term. Just sounds to me like your management waffle. "we maximise the value-add at this price point.." Anyway, you can certainly compare two Spiderman based money making ventures, and it's pointless not to pretend the videogame and movie industries don't have some overlap.

    Playstation Now...Available Now

    So you are allowed to download PS4 games (and the PS2 upmasters, which are also basically PS4 games) to your PS4, and play them subject to a license check. This seems like an ignominious end to all their fancy Gaikai tech.

    I guess just about no-one is interested any more, but Minecraft New 3DS finally got released in the EU after being held up in some sort of weird legal limbo for 2 years. My son had been cherishing a rash promise I made back then that he could get it when it came out, and cashed in. It's alright, basically pocket edition with touchscreen inventory. (No stereoscopic 3D though, which is some kind of bullshit.)

    Nintendo Switch

    My take on it... the NES games are better than I thought, they look great, and the two players with a joycon each is great (though changing grip order is the faff it always was). It's pretty damn thin gruel otherwise. I guess I could chat with randoms in some games if I wanted to, but I never want that and never use the app either. As far as the sub goes I'll probably keep it up for my kid due to aforementioned Minecraft, don't see me splurging for the family account as I so rarely play online. Sad that I won't be able to just dip in now and again.

    and in about 2 years your son is going to be looking to play Minecraft with all his buddies and you'll be detailing steps 22-40 to undo all that mess ;-)

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Or you could just buy this PS Mini thing and plug and play? I liked that you typed "convert your actual CDs" with no apparent irony, like one would be going to purchase those exact 20 games, make sure they have a compatible CD-ROM and spend a day doing this, before transferring it to a SD card and plugging it into a hacked Vita via a SD-to-Vita converter, all in the name of 'convenience'.
