Just play it while you're watching a show, reading, listening to a podcast, etc., and fold 80% of your hands. Hold'em is exciting in spurts. Like a thriller. The suspense is built. The inability to be patient is generally how most people lose.

Take it from a life long lover of Diablo 2. The Median XL mod is the best thing ever.
It's a whole new game within the art and mechanics of D2.

-All skills changed
-All items changed
-Gold is rare
-Challenges, new quests, new areas, new bosses, new enemies
Haven't been this into a game since I got hooked on Planetside2 in late 2013.


First challenge is at lvl5 so don't miss it. Cube the statue you get and at level five you can summon the challenge. You'll also want to have the official documentation on everything in your browser or available offline.

I don't think I'll ever return to vanilla D2.

Recommend me games to play on emulators on my phone. I've got a galaxy a5, which emulates snes, nes, gba, gb, genesis very well, but doesn't emulate n64, ps1 and other relatively newer consoles very well. Could you recommend games that don't require a lot of dexterity? After all, playing on a touchscreen is far from ideal.

I'll travel tomorrow to my mom's house in another city to spend christmas there. I'll have nothing to do there other than play with my phone and my ochinchin.

Really it's just that Chloe and Rachel are really well realized characters, and strong voice acting performances as well (I can't say the same for most of the rest of the cast).

That was kind of my concern from the get go, from the 1st trailer's "Rachel?" scene. If the original is Twin Peaks, she's Laura Palmer. In this one she's apparently Dexter Morgan given the reveal at the end. Actually, let me go back to that. Both have that core influence from Catcher in the Rye and Twin Peaks, but this one with Thelma and Louise and Dexter coming on board as named influences feels quite different and better for it, even if the episode 2 ending stretches plausibility kinda thin. Truly, though, it's the spirit of Thelma and Louise that makes the emotional core resonate. The characters have this force driving them, not like the first game where Rachel's disappearance is the core motivator and Max signs on as Player 2 for Chloe's sake. It's a pure wanderlust, they want to go out into the world and carve a life for themselves. This is really where the magic happens, the more nebulous, more ephemeral goal that isn't driven by external influences, despite being presented as such. There's just the shared world between these two characters (who barely knew eachother 2 days ago). Then there's the Shakespeare (how many times has the term "Star Crossed Lovers" crossed my mind this episode?). Of course it's all about the Tempest this episode, which was used to better effect this time around than the simple allusion to the previous game it evoked in the first episode. MY HEART WAS POUNDING ALL THROUGH THE TEMPEST SECTION! At this point I can't even remember all the minor influences in the original, but I know they drove it to a muddled, time bending mess for the finale (which I still quite enjoyed). This one is headed for a different sort of finale, something that I expect will be a real tear jerker.

There's a surprising amount of poignancy to this entry, it brings far more to the table than say, Fire Walk With Me did for Twin Peaks. Also, unlike the original, it can be SO GODDAMN ROMANTIC at times. Even doomed romance Eliot hinted t…

I finally finished the first two episodes and I’ve enjoyed playing them so far. I’ve been liking the backstory of Chloe and Rachel’s relationship so far and seeing returning and new characters and who they become. Backtalk is an interesting new gameplay feature, which while it isn’t the same and can’t beat Time Travel, it does add an element of hearing Chloe trying talk her way out of stuff.

The moment I saw Sera, I had a feeling there would be a big twist of her being Rachel’s real mom. That whole scene at the end of episode 2, which I did Backtalk for, was pretty intense.

And in related news, Ashly Burch will reprise voicing Chloe in Farewell - https://youtu.be/19z8RzlatS4

Finished episode 3. Had to tell Rachel the truth about her dad being in cahoots with Damon, didn't want her to have her keep on being lied to. Was surprised by how well Before the Storm turned out to be and expanding on who Rachel was and how Chloe became who she was.

I was just bumping the thread since the trailer is out.

I'm still working on 4 and 5 because I keep emulating them on shitty phones that break before I get to the end, but I've played 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8 and 9 to completion and am genuinely upset I'll never get to play 10. I finally got 4 on a DS cart so I should finish it soon.
I've only played fan translations of 6 but that kind of added to the charm. It does still have the Akira Toriyama art style, but 6 is a lot darker and goes through the trope of light and dark versions (dream and reality) of the same world.

As far as story goes, 7 did get me at lots of points I have to admit, there is some dark and sad stuff going on there too, it's what kept me playing through the padded fetch quests and endless revisiting places. There is the story about the lovers that can't be together, then the man dies and the woman runs to the mountains, later you see the monastery she started where she lived the rest of her days sad and alone.

If you're looking for some quick pick up and play the DQ monsters series was a good Pokemon clone.

Capcom is making on Street Fighter nostalgia.

What's the standard for being retro? Like where's the cut off? I mean I think there's a few good games every year or so, but about 90 percent of what I really dig is from 2005 or before. There's some newer games I'd like to dig into.

But yeah retro is comfy, just something about it.

Can I get a few recommendations? I like fiddly bits, like distributing stat points, skill trees, customising characters, etc. I also like strategy, and combat should be a challenge or puzzle. A good dungeon crawl would be awesome. Honestly, I'm just looking to be challenged and engaged, not just spam Attack until I see credits.

Games I liked: Warsong (difficult strategic combat, ends just as it hits its stride, though)
Final Fantasy Tactics (great customization),
Shining Force (a bit grindy but fun combat puzzles),
Mordor: The Depths of Dejenol (dungeon crawler rogue-like, lots of min-maxing and customization)
Sword of Vermilion (dat dungeon crawl)

Recent disliked plays:
Fire Emblem series; lame story and the rock-paper-scissors heavily favors just getting a big rock and bashing everything.
Shadowrun SNES (pixel perfect adventure);
Shadowrun SEGA (great fiddly bits but ULTRA GRINDY);
Final Fantasy 6 (fun customization, interesting story, grindy boring combat; sudden difficulty cliff in World2)

Some newer games, if you have avoided them for whatever reason, pick them up. Wait for a sale if you aren't sure.

Pillars of Eternity (do this first sequel is out in 6 months and this game has 2 expansion packs which add content to be done in mid and endgame).

XCOM and XCOM2 (not RPGs but they are definitely tactical, they're not super stat point fiddly but there is that element and combat is a puzzle at times, if you play it on iron man it's about making sacrifices to win and if you don't it's about finding the optimal sequence of moves to deal with the pair of sectopods you just alerted without losing half your team.

Darkest dungeon, another doom management game. Good fun though I found it dragged. Definitely worth it on the sale though.
