Yep. Its good to see they aren't content with their current position either. Still making smart moves instead of just riding out the momentum they already have.

Time will tell to see if they are smart moves, but I'm glad they're taking proven talented people to create new IPs or help rebuild existing ones.

From time to time I really want to play culpa innata, then I remember how boring it is.

But it's a really interesting game, different routes, dialogues, and some chill/urban setting (I love that deal).

I really like that you can just gossip around with your friend, kinda stupid, but adds a lot imo.

porn games tend to have better writing than 90% of the AAA games.

Update on an attempt to get back into playing "real" games again.

Fired up Witcher 3 again after several months. Was immediately exhausted trying to wrap my head around the world again and give a damn about killing a guy for better loot. Immediately uninstalled and wished I had purchased the physical game so I can atleast trade it in, but no I got it digital. That goes for alot of other games I cant be bothered to play atm. Alot of digital games now that I may never touch again just sitting there collecting digital dusts of 1's and 0's. Fuck off.. I also fired up Borderlands Handsome collection and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture again and also same effect. Cant be bothered with them.

I did however play Star Wars Battlefront and it's still very fun but it's not that deep experience kinda game that I would normally be attracted to. I dunno.. I should focus on story games again or something.
But damn, still playing MLB daily and crushing people online. Killed this guy 9 to 0 in under two innings and that's just way more satisfying a feeling to me right now then collecting 90 artifacts for a bullshit trophy.

Like right now I should be playing Street Fighter 5 and The Division like a monster but nah, MLB and iPhone games. Fuck me right?

I have a feeling it's going to be Bloodborne: The Adventures Rom, the Vacuous Bastard in Dickhead Land, a game where you take the mantle as one of the troll-iest, most infuriating bosses in the entire game. PlayStation Move is mandatory and will work in perfect conjunction with the PSVR headset; swish the paddles around to command your force of kamikaze spiders to attack the hunter when he or she gets too close, clipping through Rom with flawless grace; stand up and thrust the paddles above your head to perform the meteor attack at the most inopportune of times; lay on your back and thrust your mighty pelvis to the sky to summon a barrage of icebergs from the depths of the lake; quickly huddle yourself into a ball and do a jumping-jack while screaming "RAAAAAAAGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH" to perform Rom's explosion attack; and roll around on the floor, flailing about like a worm in vinegar to perform the head slam attack (hint: hold the X button to widen the size of the hitbox to truly screw over any pesky hunters).

Fingers crossed!

@Axm: I'm not gonna presume to know what your life's like, despite the fact that I do because you've told me, but to get back into games like that you genuinely need to binge during school holidays or summat, and I doubt your missus would be too keen on the idea.

So, here's my suggestion...

If you wanna get back into console games, take what so many are offering nowadays by goin the episodic and/or multiplayer route. They're made by people who want to play games but don't have much time to do so, and are therefore specifically designed to be fun and digestible in short bursts at a time, whilst still providing just enough good content to entertain you during a surprise long session.

In short: these games are tailor made for your situation.

I HOPE ITS KING'S FIELD VR!

Seriously though, I'm fine with whatever (do you mean you want first person Armored Core? Steel Battalion style UI/combat?) and if it's VR exclusive, just that and Grasshopper Manufacture both supporting it is enough to push me to get one sometime further down the line.

Whilst on the train of thought of other cool VR experiences since Grasshopper are supposedly developing one...
KILLER7 VR!

Or at least another new IP with the same psychedelic/realistic/manga influenced cel shaded art style with a script as tight as that to go along with it = day 1 purchase for a Suda fanboy like me.

Man King's Field would be awesome but I doubt we will ever see another entry, unless PSVR is what makes them go back to the IP. It would make a perfect game for VR.

Yeah I'm hoping for a first person AC game so that you can look around inside the cockpit like in EVE and Elite Dangerous. I've played a bit of both of those on my friends Oculus DK with a flight stick and felt completely immersed. I just want to boost around as fast as I can or fly through the air blowing stuff up lol. New IP would work too. I just want something built from the ground up for it, not something that feels tacked on.

The list of Devs working on projects is pretty impressive. It's going to be interesting to see what we end up with.

My vote goes to a new King's Field in VR. Would be amazing. Similar lonely atmosphere to Dark Souls, but not quite as grim. KF was first-person to begin with, so it wouldn't exactly be straying from tradition. And with From's knack for gigantic, intimidating bosses, I'd love to see some encounters like that in 3-dimensional first-person.
I'm always open to more Armored Core, of course, but I'm not sure the series' usual fast-paced action would be particularly suited to a cockpit view. I just think AC is more suited to third-person. Whenever AC6 comes about, I think that's the way it should be so we can see all the insane detail and graphical wizardly put into a PS4 release. As a series all about customization, I like being able to actually see my creations in action.
No doubt whatever they try will be amazing anyway, but if they wanted to do some in-the-cockpit mecha action, I think they'd be better off just doing a new IP, rather than pulling AC into it.

I'm down for whatever they decide to be honest. Since its VR, it doesn't make a ton of sense for them to stick to the normal third person view. Even if its just a camera setting, not having at least the option of a cockpit view for a VR game seems like a wasted opportunity. Have you played Hawken? I think it proves fast paced action like that found in Armored Core is suited for first person view. I dumped over 200 hours into Hawken when it first released. You have the ability to move a lot quicker than in AC. But sadly it was just MP with no story or co-op aspect to it, so it wasn't something I stuck with in the long run. With VR comes the ability to look up and out the sides of the cockpit, giving a better view than even Hawken did. Plus the radar will be there for locating enemies. You know I will buy whatever AC game they put out lol. I just don't what developers to stick to the norm and release something that doesn't take full advantage of the hardware. I just don't see how a third person mech game will do that. Who knows though, they might surprise us with a completely new IP or a different take on the genre altogether.

Nah real talk I play this game Jump Man on my iPhone while sitting on the sofa in front of my PS4. It's like a bootleg Mario. Just tap the screen to make him do a jump and do it enough times over objects and you beat the level. Shits wild. Cant wait for Jump Man 2. I think they might add more jumps but that's just a rumor.
