  1. They're indicated on the map by these distinct light round landmarks. For example, the circled areas here show divine towers at Limgrave and Caelid:
  2. Alternatively, have you run into a certain familiar boss type near the front door of the capital outskirts?
  3. I don't see myself "giving up" gaming unless it becomes completely inaccessible (costs of service games, online play, the race to keep up with tech) but I certainly don't consume it like I used to. The recent exodus from Spotify has made me more focused on curating the music I listen to; playlisting, following groups and labels, etc. And it's a lot less costly and time-consuming than games. Similarly, on-demand video streaming services are just so much easier to get in and out of compared to another evening attempting the latest obstacle in Elden Ring. That said, retro games are a good palate-cleanser if you're tired of chasing trends and subscriptions and live services. I spent bits of April and May playing FFV Advance and FFIII and it definitely rekindled my passion for engaging gaming experiences. No cringey voice acting or half-finished experiences weighed down by extra purchases; just some satisfying dungeon crawls and fun takes on job/class systems.
  4. The remaster portal has a "※DL版のみ" (DL version only) note underneath 4G and 3P - although the portal hasn't been updated with the Switch info. My guess is that 5R will get a physical release on everything whilst the others end up being downloads. Also, if you care about my opinion, 4 is the best due to masterful pacing throughout where the others might drag in places or (in the case of 3's Tartarus grind) feel a little samey. But 5 sacrifices pacing for awesome elaborate crafted dungeons and a ton of polish elsewhere, whilst 3 has some of the best atmosphere and theming (if you're ignoring 1 & 2.)
  5. Ace news. I'm all for great games being released on as many things possible, but it was impossible to escape the port-begging over the last five years if you just wanted to read a tweet from Atlus, so at least people can fucking chill Hopefully this bodes well for 6 and I won't be fretting about which console I need to own. Although for all we know it'll be another cross-gen project.
  6. Kind of hard to be enthusiastic for a gaming platform where the first thing you want to know is how the game will try to mug you or put up monetary barriers. I know that's the most sweeping generalisation ever but the storefronts are hopeless at highlighting games that are enjoyable and decent value.

    A collection of Taito's "Ray" games is coming to Switch and PS4 in 2023. Take it away, Google Translate: https://www.taito.co.jp/mob/topics/25344
  8. Day #92: Possibly went too niche for 4 as I guessed
  9. This is where they'll announce that Persona 3, 4 and 5 are also coming to Switch. Or not.
  10. HLTB says that there's not a lot between 3P and 4G (66 and 68½ hrs respectively.) I think 3P feels longer in my head because Tartarus seems like it goes on forever! And both variations of 5 are enormous, even when you're replaying and have knowledge from a previous completion. I grumble about 5 a bit, but I can't complain about just how much videogame there is.
  11. I remember when PomPom Games were unstoppable in the early indie days, and their Space Tripper game was pretty much Uridium: Also Nex Machina is a nice throwback to the glory days from Housemarque and Eugene Jarvis.
