Ni No Kuni is an interesting game, can't quite say I recommend it it has its ups and downs.  Beautiful art and I love Evan he's so cute but the trash mob count is off the charts and a few other things I can't quite put my finger on.  

 

 

I feel like spluging on a few PS4 games.

 

SOTC, Ni no Kuni, Persona 5, Horizon. 

 

I'm just not sure whether to wait and play these games on the eventual Ps4 pro purchase or play them on my Ps4.

honestly id say the value of the pro is mostly avoiding bad performance rather than 'oh shit is so much nicer' - so give em a go and if the frame rate or load times bother you shelve it

ur right .... tbh idk why i have such an obsession with buying one.

 

 

I'm currently starting divinity original sin... kinda mesmerised by the complexity of the game and battle system.. no game i've played has given me the breadth of tactics ive seen or choice in customisation and char build.

Just an update, on tactician this game KICKs my ass.

 

Every encounter is memorable. Its almost like the Dark Souls of RPGs now. 

 

I'm having to replay a fair few fights but learning more and more about the battle system just as positioning, unchaining, buffing before fights start, using summons to activate fights, laying traps... ! 

 

Much better than just raw-powering my way through the game with buffs galore and not paying too much attention to whatever I loot. Every spell is now so meaningful to me.

still playing divinity slowly. think im on act 2 now possibly? its rly good. on tactician mode, its definitely rewarding and pushing my abilities to the max. 

 

the item management is terrible tho. maybe if they'd made that random shit can be put in a bag and accessible/crafted by anyone it would help a bit.

finished dragon age origins. 3/10.

 

Story has potential, i like the setting and lore building, but the game's combat is so unforgivably atrocious that it completely sucks any fun out of the game, which only aggravates the fact that individual quests drag on and on repetitively. There's no updates or developments , just 'get from point a to point b' through 5 different zones and dozens of enemy encounters.

 

I have the other 2 games (think got them in like a humble bundle or something), but probably won't touch them.

I finished divinity original sin enhanced on the tactician mode...  very difficult at the start. got easier during the end. overall an awesome game but i felt the difficulty spike in puzzle solving near the end was a bit punishing and limited in regards to decisions u make which affect the outcome of most events. 

 

8.5/10. possibly a 9 if it had a better inventory management system.

Heard amazing things about this game, specifically on switch.

 

IT sounds like a 2D dark souls?

It's definitely not 2D Dark Souls, there's hyperlight drifter for that.

 

It's just a generic metroidvania game but the art style is *really* good and the gameplay is *really* good, the only thing it takes from Dark Souls is the storytelling/barely coloured in lore.

There's a lot of Dark Souls clones, and very few worthwhile video games I'd actually recommend in the last few months.  

 

August seems packed as hell, but the 1st half of 2018 has under-delivered compared to 2017

 

Ghost of a Tale and Enchanted Cave 2 probably the standouts.

I agree, first half of 2017 has been a bit dry! Especially from Nintendo who I think will have their worst Switch year, this year regardless of Smash.

Q3 2018 is stacked as hell however, probably the most video gaming releases in August in the history of vidya games.
