    Windows 10 is fine, stop being stupid.

    There is no reason not to move to 10, it's now stable and it was free.

    While W10 is generally a lot better now than it was at launch, there is still a fair bit to dislike about it, not the least of which is having Microsoft’s latest shovel-ware forcibly installed every year or so (you can delay it, but it WILL be installed eventually). Or having to check that certain 'updates' didn't just silently change your settings.

    There is also the trust issue; i.e. while MS may not be doing anything 'too evil' right now, they do have control over updating your system and licence to install and change pretty much anything they like whenever they like. What's that, you want to disable our AI spyware? Too bad, too many people disabled it in the past, so the best you can do now is hide it and pretend it doesn't exist. (i.e. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain).

    I also seriously dislike the design of the windows in W10, and how hard it is to tell at a glance which one is active; W10 = grey vs. black window name and barely visible border vs. W7/8 = full colour vs. grey title bar and clearly visible border. Settings is also a very mixed bag (and I generally still prefer Control Panel), and don't even get me started on how useless and cluttered the W10 'Start' menu is... # ClassicShellForLife

    He does seem to have done an amazing job. But I would say in todays gaming climate how many franchises other than FF would have had the money to reinvent their MMO and have such a strong fan base that they could do so and players would not have written them off after such a failure? 

    While there is no doubt the FF name has a lot of draw, the quality would have spoken for itself over time... I think the real question is, would anyone other than SE have enough pride in their IP that they are willing to invest so much in correcting their mistakes?

    And grats to Yoshi P, very much deserved (and appreciated for creating a modern FF game worthy of the name).

  • Finally bought a PS 4

    Valkyria Chornicles if you haven't already played it on PC (though I personaly prefer the PS4 version).

    Ni No Kuni 2 should also be a solid choice when it comes out in about a month.

    +1 for Persona 5, Horizon: Zero Dawn and The Last Of Us.

  • My Review after playing a year+ now

    First of all I'm going to set a few things straight seeing that I have read a lot of the forums here.

    Play to win does not exist in SOTA.  ...
    Freudian slip?

  • I am not paying $50,either F2P with shop or the Risk is to high that i become a Beta tester ...

    Its damn risky to buy games these days, in the past we have been BETA Testers over years after buying games.

    Make it F2P with a shop like the most others and i might try it.

    No way i pay $50 in advance for a online game i have not tested by myself before buying in 2018 !
    So wait till after launch, read some reviews, watch some streams, see what others are saying about it...
