    I enjoyed the frack out of Doom, Mirror's Edge Catalyst, and I Am Setsuna, but I have to say FF15 is the most enjoyable new game that's come out the entire time I've been seriously gaming (since 2012).


    As for next year, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Andromeda, and For Honor are my big ones, but I feel like For Honor is gonna be another Watch Dogs/Titanfall/No Man's Sky. OH! And of course Final Fantasy 7.1 and 12 and whatever other remastered stuff they do.

      15 years, 2001, Final Fantasy 10... Probably she's been waiting for them to make another decent main series game which they finally did.

    Great discussion this week!


    Question for next week, What is one game or franchise that you either stopped mid way thru or never started that you regret not finish or even starting?



    ---


    As for the Patch revamp, I personally loved the design of the patch as a freeform discussion because it meant that you guys had the ability to cover such a variety of topics, but I will also agree sometimes things can get stuck on tangents that might not interest a chunk of the audience as a whole. But I still enjoy the freeform conversation so I hope you keep some form of that still in whatever iteration you make.


    That being said I would love it if dedicated questions like we have for the post show could be gathered before each episode about new games and news each week for you guys to discuss in an organized manner so that its more engaging for us the community. I know a lot of game talk shows use this but it works well and hope you would consider it.


    Another idea was outside of the Patch is, having a dedicated "show/episode" where you go fully indepth into a given new release with full spoilers and a focused discussion about the game. Not really a review, but more of a conversation about the game. The reason I ask this is because for example these past few weeks a bunch of major games came out, and I felt like conversation relied heavily on FF and Last guardian whereas I felt like a major UbiSoft titles like Watch Dogs 2 was barely covered. In the case of Titanfall 2 you guys praised the title a bunch but because you had to avoid spoilers you couldn't even bring up the really cool stuff about the story's lore and the cool game mechanic mid way thru the story. These are both just a couple of recent examples that I feel an dedicated show would help address this by saying full spoilers upfront. Think Game Club: for AAA games  (maybe first half non spoiler for people interested in getting game and second half full spoiler for those who just want to hear a conversation about the game or who don't care about spoilers.) (that also being said miss talk about indie titles please bring that back)


    Regardless of what you guys decide The Patch has been a great show been a fan since Episode One from Gus, Burnie and Ryan to Ashley and Meg , and of course the rotating seat of guests has been great, I really hope it comes back soon so I can have my Friday podcast back for my drive. Thanks guys.

    What game sequels do you think have been better than their originals? Hoping for continuous story, not just another game in the franchise like Skyrim>Oblivion. Mine would be Witcher 3, the first two were really clunky and had awkward controls and camera, but 3 is really a masterpiece.

    Combat mechanics in WD and QB were fine, though I will admit it took a lot of fine tuning the control settings to find the right balance between tap the stick, do a 360 and hold the stick, barely turn, but I do that with every game.

    As for firewatch, I really was hoping for it to take a cool turn, but it all ended really mundane. It was good, but I was geared up for a huge mind blowing mystery, secrets, hours of theorizing, and finally an uncertain ending, with the fires destroying all evidence and only you being left knowing the truth with no way to prove it without seeming insane. Think of the possibilities! Underground bunkers, experiments. Like Outlast, but less violent. More psychological, the Hitchcock style or Jaws style, where you see evidence, catch glimpses, then only just discover what it is before you're forced to leave.

      The whole "mystery" bit is how the game was pitched at E3 and what got me excited about it. In the end, their direction was to do something "artistic" and what you don't really get in video games too much - make it soul crushingly real. 

      I loved the game up until the last 20-30 minutes where it gets "real" and just becomes exhausting. I have life outside of gaming, I don't need gaming to do "life" for me.
