    Ys specifically is very easy to jump around in, while there is a canonical time line the games largely stand alone with little more than references to previous titles.

    Ys is standalone for the most part I and II are considered a story essentially, but other than that every game is a new adventure, where you will likely just get a couple of nods to other games (lands for the most part). I can't speak for IX as I'm waiting for a steam release but any seem suitable except 2. At the same time, I played through them in order based on the canon games as the remakes are now canon rather than the originals (NES 3 and the two original versions of 4, made by different companies, not related ) are no longer canon.

    Am I the only one thinking this? Please correct me if I'm wrong but it's been already been established that Sony cannot put PS3 games on systems like PS4 & PS5 due to the system architecture required to run PS3 games as it was based on their Cell technology. They have acknowledged this several times (definitely a mistake on their part as a long term strategy). Am I missing something here? Why is everyone now calling for it on PS5? It's been said that it can't be done, and even it can, I'd assume the cost-benefit from a financial stand point is far more in the negative for them. I would obviously love to play my some great PS3 classics but sometimes we just sound whinny whenever we just complain and don't consider all the factors. Let's do better and ask 'why' more.

      It would take work that they seem unwilling to do, but I don’t think it’s impossible or that they “cannot”. And even so, people are also asking for the PS1 and PS2 classics (that are currently stuck on the PS3) which wouldn’t have those issues… but they also have not brought those to PS4/PS5

      Xbox said the same thing about 360 games running on Xbox One before it started its back compat program, but it clearly wasn't true. PS3 games can run through software emulation on modern computers, there is no doubt that there is enough processing grunt on PS5 to make it work, even if every game has to be tinkered with separately the way 360 games did to run on Xbox One.

    CORRECTION: While James Bond Racing: A License to Thrill isn't a real game, there was a racing game based on a James Bond license. It was called 007 Racing. It was developed by Eutechnyx (known for their largely-panned video game, Ride to Hell: Retribution), published by Electronic Arts, and released in 2000 for the PS1. It used a heavily modified Need for Speed engine and featured such licensed cars like Aston Martin DB5, BMW 750iL, BMW Z3, BMW Z8, Lotus Esprit and Ferrari F355.

      @Marcus Hankins Till a firmware update is announced then it's still an issue. People should also complain now so Sony actually takes action. And sure, even before Sony reversed their decision on the store closings they said the download list would still be kept up and running. They could say that but of course eventually the servers would have be taken down completely. Like Nintendo already did with DS and Wii. Same thing will happen with the PS3 and Vita eventually. Also people have to complain because the CMOS issue with the PS4 and PS5 is even more disgraceful because even physical games will be affected. There needs to be outrage so Sony actually acts and does something about this too.

    • Marcus Hankins

      Marcus Hankins

      But that's really a non issue. Sony has said they are looking into it and it will get resolved I'm sure, but it's something you don't have to really worry about until 10 years or so after the gen even ends. Even if the store shuts down servers are still there.

    With the Sony stores closing thing, honestly if they turned this all around and made it so all digital purchases on PS3 worked on PS5 and most physical games too I'd be waaay more interested in the PS5. Every purchase is a ticking time bomb but digital purchases that are linked to a specific machine even more so. The anxiety of losing all my 3DS purchases and PS3 purchases is real! Whereas I feel much more at easy with the my fully physical collections of PS1 / GC etc.

      Only thing we can hope for is that PS3 emulation is eventually perfected on PC and all games including all the digital-only ones are eventually downloadable on PC. Piracy is the only way all games but especially digital media can be preserved. It's obvious we can't count on companies to do so themselves.

      @Charlie Wood Totally, I've come to terms with the fact that with wear and tear everything goes away eventually. So backing up or using other people's back up's is the only way to 'preserve' indefinitely. But when it comes to digital stores it's like your whole catalog of games can disappear in one swoop. If your console breaks and the servers go away their is no way to get back those games back on a new console. That's terrifying! At least with physical it's all a little more segmented. (but then there are day one patchs yada-yada... sigh...)

    Order 1886 is straight trash. $60 for 4 hours is a valid complaint, even if the game was actually good. $60 for a 4 hour game where half of it is cutscenes, 1/4 is slow walking and the rest is either nonsense QTE boss fights or Gears of war 1 level cover shooting is just an insult. Yes, it HAD potential, but not anymore. I bought it full price day 1. The single black mark on the ps4 exclusive lineup.

    If anyone loves sad and depressing games done extremely well with tons of love and care put into them, check out the game Omori. Honestly, it's one of the best games I've played that seems to be slipping under the radar unfortunately. The unique child like drawing artstyle, the humor, adventure, quirky romp and incredible music make it a must play. Vibes of EarthBound, Undertale and Yume Nikki. I know Ian might like something like that and if any of you are reading this comment, go have a look at it. It's on Steam and don't be fooled by the RPG maker style and you might write it off because of that, it's literally the best and surpasses that from your generic RPG maker style games.

    1:10:12 I played Cyber Shadow on Game Pass, loved the heck out of it (I even came to be able to beat it in under three hours!), and bought it. I probably wouldn't have played it if it hadn't been offered on Game Pass. I see games, I say those look cool, but I have to be very careful how I spend money, I can not possibly buy every game that looks cool to me, there's not a whole lot that I can afford at all. Game Pass has been an enormous boon in my life because not only can I play the small budget games that look cool to me, but I also get to play some of the games that have had more visibility. If I was paying for larger games out of pocket I'd not have the money to buy the smaller ones. So I also played Resident Evil 7 on Game Pass and discovered that I only like that game OK, I didn't enjoy it half as much as I did Cyber Shadow, but without Game Pass I might have purchased RE7 and not Cyber Shadow because RE7 gets talked about and Cyber Shadow doesn't.

    Starting in the middle of a series is something that I feel is nowadays baked into game design. Everything is a soft reboot. Enough callbacks and buiding upon its predecessors for veterans, but new enough so that you don't have to get any of those. Feels a bit too constructed for me, a bit too safe, so not to alienate any group of potential consumers.

    I feel like the whole "PS5 fastest selling" thing despite bad optics for Sony recently, and Cyberpunk selling really well despite the bad press, are showing that the dedicated gaming community are quite small in the grand scheme of things. Most people don't really care for a lot of the stuff that we talk about, and it also kinda shows that catering to the dedicated fans is more of a PR/reputation play rather than a profit play.

      These things do seep over into the general gaming population in time. Like when the Xbox One was announced only core gamers knew what was happening, but in time the bad news was heard by mainstream people and Xbox One sales were affected even though the whole DRM BS was removed by then. At the same time though I honestly don't think this will affect PS5 sales too much as Sony just has too many IPs and timed exclusives that people are interested in playing. But it'll affect some sales. Especially the CMOS thing. If Sony doesn't announce a firmware update to remove the online check requirement, more people are going to hear about this and I believe a good portion will jump ship to PC or Xbox. Or at least get most of their games on those platforms, and just get a PS5 for exclusives. But word will reach more mainstream audiences eventually and some people will lose trust in Sony respecting their purchases in the future, which will affect at least some PS5 sales.

      Yes and no. Like at the end of the day, it's true that hardcore gamers are a minority, but I don't see how that has anything to do with Sony and Cyberpunk. The new gen of consoles and GPU's are sold out because of the unprecedented demand from the pandemic and they are really cool machines. SSD's and retro compatibility mean that people will upgrade sooner without losing their old library of games. Cyberpunk sold really really well at launch thanks to good marketing and great reviews at launch (and the pandemic again), but CDPR has already said that its sales have been greatly impacted by the bad press and the removal from the PS store. It's just that millions had already pre-ordered and discovered first hand the issues, but most probably didn't bother returning it and either don't care or are waiting for patches.

      theres sooooo many podcast topics/questions (not in the EZA podcast just in general) these past few years that are very off the mark because of the "bubble" of core-gamers/journalists. Like the PS3 Store thing, yes, it has had its bad buzz, but the reality is not "we care about you so we heard your complaints", its just "we saw the amount you spent on the PS3 store and it paid for a few more months and we're still gonna have people scare-buying for a few months, so its worth it".

    Correction: Rockstar did accidentally remove ALL of it's games from Steam. Then when they were brought back afterwards, more games returned then should have had. (For a while.) (You just said that there were suddenly more games for awhile.

    Stop shitting on Cyberpunk that much, it's still a great game at its core. They should just have never released it on last gen consoles. It's one of the best games I played on PC last year.

      It's not a great game at its core though. It's a very average game at its core. Aside from its setting other games have done everything it tried and did it better. The AI, Gunplay, driving, physics, customisation and brawling are all underwhelming. As if that wasnt bad enough its not even technically sound, riddled with bugs and performance issues. I mean...how many strikes do you need before youre out these days?? As far as shitting on a game goes...if any game deserves to be shit on - its Cyberpunk.

    Correction: 37:54, not sure if just mispronounced or wrong idea but the game is Wraith: Oblivion (wrAYth, as in the ghost, not wrAHth as in anger). Wraith: the Oblivion is one of White Wolf's World of Darkness settings that are starting to get more video game adaptations (like Vampire: The Masquerade / Werewolf: The Apocalypse).

      Came here to say this. This is the first time Wraith was adapted into a video game right? This is kind of a big deal for me. I was worried they were gonna botch it, but the game feels in line with the world so I'm excited!

    Battlefield V had the potential to be the greatest one they've ever done and they dropped the ball. It should have never had Battle Royale (or at least made that part of it F2P), doesn't need Single Player, doesn't need Co-Op. The multiplayer is the bread and butter of this game and if they had stuck to that and not fucked around with bad TTK changes and pissing off the community it could have been great. WWII is the perfect setting and now I'm sad that they will probably never go back to WWII because a bunch of morons in suits will see how BFV did and conclude it was the setting and not their incompetent miss-management and decisions.
