Does anybody know if the Definitive Edition of Ori and the Blind Forest is worth upgrading to if you already own the main game? It costs me 5 euros to do that and I bought the game on a sale last year for roughly 10 euros.

@KratosMD I would say it is, I paid about £3 to upgrade. It adds a new mechanic and a new area (which I haven't discovered yet). It is such a great game and a little bit of a challenge in parts too.

@crippyd: I see. Is it post-game content though? Perhaps I can play through the main game first and then decide if I want to play more of it through the DE.

@KratosMD No, it is part of the main game from what I've seen. For the small price I would advise you to upgrade, it lets you revisit areas like the Ginso Tree when you've completed them so you can go back and get all the secrets without the hassle of the game trying to kill you as much.

@crippyd: Oh, ok. Well in that case I do want to get the full experience while playing through the game, so I think I'll buy it. Thanks!

Thinking about buying Persona 3 Portable on the latest Retro sale in Europe. Is it worth getting if you were really into Persona 4 Golden? I was originally thinking about getting Persona 3: FES on PSN because that version seemed better, but the Persona series feels more at home on a portable device. Is Portable worth getting over FES?

Also thinking about buying the Resident Evil PS1 trilogy from the sale, but I already own the remake of the first game. Is the first game worth getting again after playing through a bit of its remake? I felt like I had a hard time with the remake (and I was playing on Easy with Jill) but it was my first time ever playing a "traditional" RE game. I had no idea about a LOT of the things that were coming up in the game, such as Crimson Heads, that I should've avoided wasting ammo on most zombies that I could get past etc.

Asked this on Nintendo Life, but figured it couldn't hurt to ask here as well.

I have $2 on my Google Play account and am thinking about buying a new table in Zen Pinball, and am seeking suggestions on what the best one is.

I already have the Mars, Portal Pinball, Sorcerer's Lair, South Park: Super Sweet Pinball, and V12 tables, and am looking for something sci-fi themed (thinking about a Star Wars or Alien table, but am not sure which one to go for. Would also take other recommendations, such as the Guardians of the Galaxy table, but am mostly looking at those other two properties).

BTW, I like The Pinball Arcade too, but I don't have enough on my account for any of their tables, so please no TPA recs.

Hope it's okay to resurrect this thread. I know it's old, but I am genuinely seeking advice here.

EDIT: A sale pushed me towards the Alien tables, since I could get two of them instead of just one. Got the Aliens & Alien: Isolation tables.

Hey everybody! Was looking for a recommendation for a good non turn-based JRPG! I'm about halfway through my second playthrough of Nier: Automata, and I have been getting an itch to try out another more RPG-y JRPG once I finish Nier. I know next-to nothing about the genre, but a few games have interested me on my search: Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA, Tales of Zestiria and Berseria, Sword Art Online, Xenoblade Chronicles II (obviously on Switch). Do you guys recommend any of these? Should I avoid any of these? And Are there any others you recommend? Thanks!

@Doctor_BK, I'd say start with one of the Tales games. While I haven't played either of the two you mentioned, I have played both Abyss & Vesperia, and they both have an easy to grasp action setup, and I can't imagine the others would be much different.

Just finished up XC2, and while it's a fantastic game, it's not a full on action RPG. While you can run around, you really can't dodge/block attacks at whim (effectiveness of attacks is dependent on what angle you're attacking from). While it does it's best to explain things to you, it's definitely the most complex out of the games you mentioned, so maybe not the best place to start.

Can't speak on Ys VIII as I haven't played any Ys games, but I haven't heard of the combat being particularly complex.
