18:49 - MetalDoomMaster Yeah the Witcher 2 was a less cool game but it was also a way better game than the first one
18:38 - Fearmeister I wouldn't call the Witcher 2 garbage. For one, the combat is a lot better and the story/presentation is amazing. I would like to the some more Witcher 1 elements in 3 though (like having a gazillion different types of monsters)
18:37 - moonflash BlackEssence, that is Persona, a video game. But yeah it basically is an anime for all intents and purposes. I kinda agree Joe, the dungeons do become tedious after a while but the narrative is absolutely incredible.
18:16 - EmeraldSword persona5. nice. i'm currently playing smtiv on 3DS. First Persona related game for me since the first one on ps1
18:08 - !J.O.O.E.! I'd say it's worth another shot now all the bugs have been... debugged. - I have a love hate relationship with Persona games. Great story and characters, terrible procedurally generated dungeon exploration and average battles.
