Persona 4: The Golden

It has arrived.

For everything you need to know about this game just follow my Twitter or see “My Vita View” to the right as I will be screenshot-ing my way through this gem of an RPG.

If you haven’t played or heard of, and, you are interested in quality RPG gaming on the PS2 or more recently the PS Vita, then pick up Persona 4 Golden when it drops in Europe next year or alternatively import it as I have.

This game will be carrying me through until Ni No Kuni in January.

I have however literally just finished Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker as part of the HD Collection released earlier this year.  I was skeptical because of the handheld controls but rest assured it transfers well on to the big screen and controller.

Peace Walker is a full fledged Metal Gear Solid game in its own right and introduces characters Paz and Chico, mentioned and seen in the Metal Gear solid Ground Zeroes demo also shown off earlier this year.  If you want to know a bit about their back story, work your way through Peace Walker. It’s going to take you roughly 12 hours give or take side missions etc etc.

Tales of Symphonia HD

Tales of Symphonia has been around for a while and yet I’ve never given it a fair shot.  Every time I sit down with it something else comes a long and I often get sidetracked and forget what it is I’m doing and have to start over.  This is likely to be the case with Tales of Graces as well as that is still sitting unfinished next to me.  So why a blog about Symphonia?  WELL.

Recently due to my Diablo venture I’ve splashed out on a new PC capable of playing games on full whack making the visuals look noticeably better then their console counter parts.  With that in mind I’ve applied the same to getting the most out of my old console games.

Using a Gamecube emulator and the physical disk copy of Tales of Symphonia I legitimately bought and own, I’ve been able to res up the visuals to a Vesperia and Graces standard and they look fantastic.  I’ll let you be the judge.

 

These two taken very early on in the game show the level of detail applied by the emulator.

If I find anything else particularly beautiful looking I’ll be sure to post it.
