Even on my Professional PS4, yeah, the shading (or the LOD) on the grass pops in really close to the camera, and the camera angle when riding Agro really doesn't help hide it, but it's nothing compared to the weird 2D>3D thing that the original had going for it.

Edit to ask:

I'm really, REALLY tempted to get the Yakuza 0+6 bundle, but I'm also really curious about Celeste, and I don't really want to get both. Yakuza seems like the better deal, but having never played one, it's still a 100$ gamble that I might lose.

Exactly how good is Yakuza 0, and how good is Yakuza 6 going to be? Is Celeste a better choice?

Yakuza 0 is amazeballz but maybe you are too lame for it. Such people exist be vigilant

I'm getting the urge to pick something up, since my backlog is down to only the second half or so of Yakuza 0 and Okami HD. Help me choose!

-Nioh, combat looks like its got more depth than most Souls games. I loved BB but found DS3 a real drag until the very end/dlc areas
-Monster Hunter World, looks fun and can play with friends
-Shadow of the Colossus, never played the original
-PerSona Vita, mostly for playing P4, P3, P4D....etc. It costs more than the previous three combined but I really loved P5.

Nioh is real good but after 15-20 hrs i was really bored and it keeps going

Mhw is real good but after 30-50 hrs i was really bored and its supposed to be awesome for hundreds of hrs according to its accolytes.

Sotc is real good but its also loving frustrating as a first timer with no nostalgia

I have a vita, p4g is real good but you might get away fine emulating the ps2 version free.

All of these games own, my only point of discrimination is whether you want a ten or one hundred hour game when choosing SOTC vs Nioh/MHW.

Also Nioh is probably cheap these days?

Even with SotC at $40...MHW is the better value.

Hm, I'm overseas and find its more reliable to just use PSN to download stuff, and Nioh hasn't been on sale since November I think.

Not sure about time. I spent 100 hours on my first playthrough of P5 but it was a breathless "I can't wait to see what happens next" atmosphere that didn't ever really feel like it outstayed its welcome. The most recent game I played was Hellblade which a pretty short but nice experience I knocked out in a few hours over a couple nights. They were both really enjoyable despite radically different playtimes. I guess it depends on whether the hundred hours are full of meaningful or new content. Is there enough variety in Nioh or Monster Hunter to keep it fresh over that period?

I've played at least 70 hours of Nioh and MHW has killed any intention of playing SOTC for now. I like grindy games if the core gameplay is tight and both Nioh and MHW are loads of fun to play with great variety in weapons and enemies (people might argue Nioh enemies aren't that varied but the bosses are all pretty awesome). However on the story front Nioh is light on and MHW only has a story to keep you proceeding towards another monster hunt. They are both pretty hard to begin with, but once you gear up and learn the machanics you can enjoy many hours of unadulterated violence against a seemingly never ending stream of new demons or monsters.

The spike that knocked me out was a boss fight. The boss would have a color-coded shield to tell you what attack to use. The colors were something like red/orange/green. That’s kind of a no-go when you’re colorblind. TBH I probably still wouldn’t have been able to beat that guy though, I got decent-ish at getting the right color (better than chance, iirc), but even then it was way too hard

Lady Maria is my new Tachibana Muneshige in that it is a perfect duel, no gimmicks, I know how to beat her and it is just up to my slow-rear end reflexes holding up enough to string together enough hits to win. Up to 25 deaths and counting.

Also I am reminded that vials loving suck

The only frustrating part of Guacamelee is the hidden dungeon IMHO. I thought the story mode was perfectly balanced. And defeating the dungeon felt good!

Re: Bloodborne. The first area took me a good while, but after that it's smooth sailing, except for the castle and DLC which are hard as balls (but the best part of the game) . And the final boss is pretty difficult.

Maria is a knock-out showdown street fight brawl in the clock tower. It just feels right, and peak bloodborne. Wish she was easier to refight.

Up to 40 deaths so far. I think I'm going to call it for now and sleep on it before fatigue just makes things worse.

I could probably summon for help but just like Tachibana Muneshige, I'm really enjoying this fight and want to prove to myself that I can do it on my own

Lady Maria is one of the best fights in games and I wish more Soulsborne bosses were just really flashy duels. Not that I don't love giant horrible monstrosities as well. Also loved the DS3 dual boss version of her with the giant chasing you around, but it was drat hard and I had to summon someone to beat it.

Get Shadow of the Colossus, I never played it until the remake came out and it immediately jumped into my top 10 games of all time

Ignore every post that isn’t suggesting SotC

Keep in mind that Okami is much longer than you probably think it is. 40 hours if you just plow straight through; 60 hours or longer to 100%.

I'm honestly looking forward to playing without the chaos system. I know what it's meant to do but it's really hard to not see it as a morality system, especially since the game becomes harder in high chaos.

I would recommend Shadow of the Colossus because it's a beautiful little game that can be completed in under 10 hours with satisfaction and all the rest of those options, including the ones you haven't finished, are all at least 50+ hour forevergames.
