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.

Picked up Shadowrun Returns for my android tablet as I had 2 quid from Google. Initially thought it would be one of those endless runners which I hate but turns out it is actually cyberpunk themed RPG with grid turn based combat. Which is a perfect fit for a tablet or mobile device, not sure if it is available on other platforms but I think it is on Steam. The combat reminds me of X Com 2 as you can go behind cover and stuff.
The plot involves you investing the violent murder of a buddy who contacts you after his death. This leads to you looking into a serial killer. I'm pretty early into the game but it has me hooked already.

So I recently discovered two new (?) collections of games on the 360 and PS3; the 'Call of Duty Modern Warfare Trilogy' on the 360 (with a map pack for MW2) and the 'Red Faction Collection' on the PS3 (including Guerrilla, Armageddon, Battlegrounds, and all the DLC for each game) for €20 each. I haven't played any of these games, is any of the collections worth picking up?

@KratosMD Well Modern Warfare just become BC on the Xbox One however because of Modern Warefare Remastered though the player count didn't go up significantly on Multiplayer. If you are wanting the MW Collection just to play the campaings it's worth it but if you want to get them for MP I wouldn't bother. As I said with MW you are better off just getting MWR and MW2 has so many hackers that for me anyway just makes it a bad experience. But for the campaings it's not bad.

@Tasuki Yeah, I was looking to play strictly the campaigns since I've heard that these are the best CoD games. I don't really care much about the multiplayer portion. So in that case, I think I'll be getting the collection then!

@KratosMD If memory serves, the PSP version of Persona 3 isn't the same as the PS2 version. If you don't mind, then from what I know the story is the same, but they've massively simplified how you travel around the world, and I'm not sure if the combat is different. I always thought Persona was better on a TV anyway though. And if you liked Golden, Persona 3 is a tough one to call - on the one hand, it's Persona. You'll be battling, going to school, all that jazz. On the other hand, it's a little bleaker than 4 and 5, and because it's earlier in the series, the social link and battling systems aren't as refined. I think it's a great game, but I just don't know if I'd have loved it if I'd played it after 4 and 5 rather than before.

@johncalmc I appreciate the detailed response. However, that post is from almost two years ago. I've already bought both versions of Persona 3 since then.

Which I do regret now, because Atlus has been asking people if they want remasters/remakes of past Persona games, and I'd rather wait and play a remake of Persona 3 than play the original versions right now.

@KratosMD :') haha. Was I right at least? Is the portable version different?

I do wish they'd re-release Persona 4 for like the twelfth time on PS4 so I don't have to dust my Vita off when I feel like playing it. And I could do with another version of Persona 3 with trophies. That would be nice.

@johncalmc Yeah you were. P3P is like a point and click now when traversing the overworld, whereas in P3:FES you can actually move around in a 3D world just like in P4G. Also the cut scenes aren't as immersing in P3P because you don't really see the character models. So while the portability is nice, I'd still prefer to play FES just because it's the most similar one to P4G.

Okay, so, I need to Metal Gear Solid, the first one. Should I play the original PS1 version, or track the Twin Snakes on GameCube for when I get it?
