Ah, so like, chapter selection. I don't think it would make it any easier TBH.

I wouldn't think so either.  After you beat a chapter, it unlocks a permanent (but random) shortcut... But it's usually advised to not do that if you want to build up your arsenal adequately.  I have to fully run through just to even reach the 3rd boss.  That 3rd biome is flippin brutal with it's mobs.  Every vid I've watched on how to get past it, their health bar is doubled in size and have some level 20 shit with some shield that blocks everything.  :doge Well, of course you had no problem defeating it.  ::)

Save scumming may actually be a thing.   Someone on REEEEEEEEEEEE posted:

Ok, I reinstalled the game to try out the new "suspend cycle", for science.

So, save scumming works perfectly as you would expect. And in fact, it's now been streamlined: when on the PS5 home screen and on top of the game icon, press OPTIONS, then UPLOAD/DOWNLOAD SAVED DATA, and you'll have the two needed functions right there in the same screen, UPLOAD or DOWNLOAD. It really couldn't be easier.

A few notes of stuff I noticed while retrying a couple of times:

    Room layout is the same, so this appears to be randomized only when first entering the biome, not when retrying from your save
    Chests, Obolite chunks, resins, keys all appear in the same places and with the same malignant status, so also not random
    But interestingly, destroyable walls are random, although it appears that if a room has a destroyable wall, it will also have one when scumming, just in a different part of the room
    Enemy composition is random, you won't face the same enemies when scumming
    Although you can also suspend with enemies around, so if you've already triggered an enemy wave, it's the same enemies when you reload
    Dropped loot from enemies (items, weapons, parasites) is random
    Chest contents are random
    Fabricator stuff is random
    Terror image Splash screens when reloading are random
    Parasites on the ground are not random, they have fixed bonuses and maluses
    Bonus rooms entrances are not random, but the bonus room itself is random
    Didn't try it, but since the Obolite repository is tracked online, you could save scum right before depositing obolites, reloading and depositing again until full to get an item

Save-scummers rejoice! The time it takes from pressing the PS button, closing the game, downloading your data from the cloud and restarting to the point you're back in action is 42 seconds.
:thinking :obama

That was probably the worst one yet.

Little Devil Inside looks great though.

I don't get it, they announced FFXVI with "ok" graphics saying they were using a different approach, being realistic with the production, announcing closer to the game shipping, etc, and now it's been forever since the reveal?  ???
I hope it's not yet another disaster...

Was there anything at all at the state of play besides Star Ocean?


Re: FF16, it's coming 2022. They're just not going to show it until it's 3-6 months from release and the visuals are basically done.

Apparently they were aiming for a TGS trailer but they couldn’t cut it, and they only wanna show the game when it’s just about ready for release. I could see it releasing summer next year if they’re not full of shit.

I just want to know if 16 has a party or not.

Also I think Star Ocean looks like my kind of trash. I don't even think it looks bad.

The character models are ugly as hell. The rest of the game looks good.

These State of Play's make no sense... It's like they draw names out of a hat on what to showcase at the last possible minute... But yet, like twice a day, they release vids of up and coming games.  For instance, this just popped up 4 hours ago..


Seems like a neat indy game... But why not show this instead of that vomit inducing We are OFK interactive novel, movie, whatever it was, that was drawn out way too long?   :steel

I was really confused at the Let it Die thing. Who was asking for a sequel to a 2016 free to play game?

Era was shitting all over the new SO, tbh I don't think it looks that bad (the environs and exploration give me Xeno X vibes, which is always good) aside from the poor character models (something that SO has always had since they went 3D).

But then again they may just be shitting on it because of her:

Little Devil Inside looks pretty neat. Looking forward to playing it when it comes out in 2029.

If the robo-raptor has cool jumping attack animations while mounted, this will be my GotY 2022.

I'm a man of simple tastes. I'm always satisfied with the best mounts.

Anyone know if there's a way to see historical price drops on the PS store? Thinking about pulling the trigger on Hitman 3, but it seems pretty expensive even after discount and I'm sure it's been cheaper before.....
