Have you started DOOM and XC2, Drunka?

I got about half way through DOOM before a combination of not having a TV to play on, wanting to wait for the motion controls and a bug that stopped me using most of the menus made me pack it in and wait to come back.

As for XC2 I've put the cart in and installed it but never even opened the game.

It's still like 15-20 hours if I remember rightly, which is only really short if you place it next to other JRPGs.

Which I am if I want a JRPG it either has to dig its claws in like Persona 5 did that I will want to play for 95hrs or be on the shorter side.

Very differing views on that here, Eof! Generally positive ones elsewhere. I've certainly given it the most time here: it's more Xenoblade, if you played the first one. If not, it's all about the atmosphere, built by means of massive worlds, changing weather, and beautiful music. The battle system's good for an RPG too: action-based, and surprisingly tactical. There are good characters and bad characters (the main two females are one of my best and worst female characters in gaming), and the plot's not bad. And it'll keep you going for hours and hours and hours.

I'd say, it depends whether you're fonder of modern or retro-style JRPGs. I think XC2 is an excellent example of the former.

I'd say have you played Ni No Kuni 2? If not go and play that instead.

I see what you mean about split views!

I generally prefer old school jrpgs but I would like to try something a little different for a change!

And yep I have Ni No Kuni 2 so I might go for that instead!

I would have said XCX2 is old-school and something like Persona 5 is a modern JRPG.

Bear in mind this is Andy we're talking about here. Tongue That said, certainly can't criticise you for playing one of Studio Ghibli's beautiful RPGs! I've heard it's not as good as NNK1, but that's just hearsay...
