Ghost of Tsushima

It's release day. I am looking forward to this game. I love Sucker Punch and I love samurai. What could go wrong?

Is it a PS4 exclusive?

Let me know how you like it. I should be done with The Last of Us Part 2 by today or tomorrow, and I'll be starting on it.

Gonna be interesting to see how I feel about it after spending 100 hours on Sekiro.

OK... it has a Kurosawa mode. How can I not love this game?

(Still planning on finishing KC:D before I let myself tackle this, but honestly, a Kurosawa mode? <blows kiss>)

I spent 100 hours (well maybe like 90) on Sekiro as well, but I am still loving this game. They are different in a lot of ways, but not in any bad way. Also, they both have a woman named Tomoe. So, there you go.

Also, this game is freaking beautiful.

I haven't tried this yet, but I plan to. I know you can switch between these at any point.

The waypoint system is amazing. Instead of an arrow or a path or whatever pointing you to your destination, the wind just generally blows flower petals and grass, etc. in the direction that you need to go. I love this so much.

Kurosawa mode turns the game black/white and adds a old school film grain texture to it. Spoken language is Japanese with English subtitles. It’s (like the rest of the game) gorgeous. But the game is easier to play in color so I don’t think I will play much in Kurosawa mode.

I wish it was easier to post PS4 screenshots on here. This game's photo mode is incredible.
