I’m a warrior, so wasn’t sure if it would be less fun to play if I were to go a spell-casting type, but after watching others play I’m wondering if I made a bad choice. 

I’m just at the Royal Reception quest and so far I don’t really feel like the story has revealed itself, but given the acclaim this game has I’m happy to stick with it. Plus, I actually really enjoy the side quests. Although I feel kind of bad about killing the monsters in game. Most of them just seem to be mulling about minding their own business up until I turn up to slaughter them 🙁

Warrior’s job quests are ace, you’ll love them!

The event was a massive success! The original target of £100 (we're all small streamers) was thrashed immediately, so we upped it to £200, then £300, then £500. The current amount is £1052.99

It’s such a waste of money (unless you have it) to jump in at launch. The games have been developed with current gen in mind so they don’t really perform any different, the games that are actually ava

I'm playing Death To The Megathread 2020 on the Xbox. I'm stuck on level 4 because it wont let you just cut and paste something and then not post your own personal opinion on anything.

My mate keeps badgering me to get into FFXIV but I’m worried because a) I’ve never played a FF game and b) I can only really give an hour a night to play, maybe more at weekends

Is that enough time do you think or am I better off not bothering?

He’s really ramping up the pressure because as I understand it part of the patch yesterday was making the free trial even bigger and better to new players

I’m definitely enjoying them, it’s the general story I feel a bit indifferent about so far. I’m sure that’ll change, but as it goes I’m spending much more time exploring and finding side-quests than progressing the story.

That probably doesn’t help me enjoy the story, as I end up forgetting what’s going on...

@waters44 - it’s not like any offline FF game so that doesn’t really matter. It’s actually designed in a way that makes it quite easy to play in short bursts. However, after the free trial you do have to pay a subscription so whether or not you feel you get value for money through that is another thing.

The free trial is indefinite, isn't it? The new update gives you the entire base game and first expansion now so it's essentially a free-to-play game.

Just keep playing Destiny 2. You know it makes sense.

I’ve no idea, you may well be right. @Kookoocachu is clearly far more knowledgeable about the game than I am so might be able to answer this one.

Free trial has now changed to I believe a level 60 cap and includes Heavensward the first expansion. This doesn't include things however like being able to trade in game and some other things. 
It's well worth the subscription fee, I would happily pay three times as much.

I’ve given up on that now! It was becoming more like a second job rather than a hobby. I’m also a pve player and it sounded like they were focusing on PvP with trials and that so I knocked it on the head. You still playing? I may check out the next expansion one day

Phantasy Star Online 2 has been out on Xbox for a bit.

One of the more fun F2P model MMO's I've played. Maybe a little too generous though since I hit level 45 after only one day and little has really felt like a challenge so far, only died once since starting.

Or maybe I'm just really fucking awesome.

Yeah I'm sure that's it.

Question for those that have played through and finished Ghost of Tsushima. Are all the missions 'go here and fight people'? 

I'm enjoying it so far (albeit not very far in), but that's all the missions have been. I can see me getting bored quite quickly with that.

Pretty much. If it grates just focus on the mythic side quests and the main story. You’ll bash through them in no time at all compared to ticking every box and the story and game picks up a fair bit from Act 2.

When you say mythic side quests, do you mean the fox dens and stuff like that, or the side quests you get from talking to people in camps?

They’re listed on the menu as Mythic Stories. You find the story teller at a camp usually and he’ll tell you the story then you investigate it but they have a neat little intro and you usually end on a duel and will get armour or a new special attack from them. I wish they had half the pointless side quests and made a few more quests like that.

I believe they will show up as Blue objectives on the map.

Ah yes, I know the ones. I've already done one of those and just about to start another. 

Cheers for that.
