    Definitely worth a go (especially if you're a fan of MMOs or RPGs)

    It's ridiculously deep - but very easy to pick up, and packs a ton of content in. It's one of the few MMOs I've played where the monthly fee feels justified in terms of the number, size and frequency of updates they do. The controller mapping for PS4 is very cleverly done and loading times are all very quick (though lag can be a problem at times during peak hours - though this depends more on your connection I think). The job system is brilliant too - I really like the way one character can switch between jobs - basically means you can play many different styles on one character without having to make alts.

    My only two criticisms would be,

    a) It's a 'proper' time-sink. Be prepared to sink around 20 hours a week into it if you want to properly get into it.

    b) The end-game content requires a ridiculously high skill level (in my opinion) - the community is on the whole very friendly, but woe betide you if you join end game parties without being up to the standard.

    I do love my RPGs (and Final Fantasy games) but I've never played an MMO before. I don't have a PS4 (yet...) but Amazon are selling the PS3 version for just under £5 (before postage).

    I do hope on being able to buy a PS4 before the end of the year and iirc, aren't Square Enix offering a free upgrade for PS3 players until the end of the year?

    XIV is excellent. I've stopped playing it now for one reason or another, but I wouldn't give back the ten months I had with it for anything.

    Also, adding such an obvious space to the title of "Akiba's Trip 2" really does decrease the level of... ingenuity... on display.

    Has anyone played any of the Warriors Orochi games? Are they any good?

    I love them, though I don't pick up all of the extended editions as I don't have enough time. Have you played any Dynasty Warriors style games before? They're the same kind of thing, but more awesome.

    Yup, I got DW 8 when it came out on PS4 earlier this year and loved it, so will definitely thinking about picking up Orochi. Bit gutted the Gundam one doesn't seem to be coming to PS4 as that looks incredible.

    Nice, that game looks like it didn't shape up quite as good as I thought it was going to be after playing the demo, but it's still cool to see them following through on that.

    I would suggest Phoenix based on server pop, but Odin isn't too far behind and I can attest to it being a fun server to play on. Haven't played for a few weeks myself for one reason or another, otherwise I'd show you around. :-/

    Can NIS America please rename themselves "NIS Europe" when releasing this in the continent?

    While they're at it, they might as well reduce the LE prices because 99% of the fans on their Facebook page are pissed.

    First "killer app" PS4 exclusive right there. And coming hot on the heels of the Orochi 3 Ultimate announcement. Too much awesome.

    Xseed have the PS3 and Vita rights as well, though?

    True but if they had gotten the PS4 rights before NIS Europe popped in, the UK could have gotten the PS4 version as well. But I guess it's not much of an issue right now, there's still plenty of time for NIS to get the PS4 version out there since the US version isn't released till the holiday season. Ah nevermind.

    Anywho, Sony is bringing out a Limited Edition for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix for UK/Europe/PAL region. What do you get for the Limited Edition? a collectible Disney badge!

    The three day headstart on the Destiny beta wasn't enough to convince you already?

    I don't think there's a genre of videogame that excites me less than sci-fi FPS. Maybe quiz show tie-ins.

    How about games that are actually original quiz shows?
