I believe it's the bit where they're obnoxious little shits who run their mouths constantly. I'm having flashbacks to when I walked up to their wall and got berated by some insolent little fuck face who made me do a stupid fetch quest for him to advance the plot. I mean, really? This rude sack of shit is ordering me to and fro and his nuts haven't even dropped? IRL these fuckers wouldn't last a week before they got their skulls smashed by super mutants.

Epoch kind of sucked last time I played it, compared to A2's DayZ Epoch anyhow. They'd had zombies turned off forever on the servers awaiting a patch from Bohemia. It's probably fixed by now, maybe, but even with them it wouldn't be as good as A2. Esseker looks cool but is not very functional as a map. I had the same issue with Altis life, sucks compared to Takistan. KOTH was fun enough, but the stacked deck teams the server admins refused to fix even though the server was max pop killed it for me. I've tried some other mods too, nothing remarkable irrc. Maybe there's a 'good' A3 mod I haven't tried yet (DayZ A3 maybe? looks better than DayZ SA at any rate) but other than that I'm not aware of any.

Best mod support is Arma 2. There's not much point to playing offline. There's a vanilla campaign to Arma 3 that's okayish, but the mods mostly focus on the multiplayer. The campaign doesn't last long if you don't die constantly, but you very well might. It's not an easy game. Also A2 is modern weaponry whereas A3 is goofy futuristic modular weaponry, if that matters to you.

STeLLARIS dropping in just a few days. I'm personally very psyched for this game to come out. It's a great sci fi space 4x grand strategy game. It has some really robust mechanics like the ethics/ethos system, traits, the technology system is cool. Having watched hours of the devs play this game over the past few weeks, it keeps surprising me which is great.

Anybody else been following this? I'd love to see people post pics of their empires and races in this thread as we play the game. I'm planning on taking a few days off of work so I will be posting many pics in this thread anyway. Talk about Game!

(Pic related is a modded 5000 star galaxy if your system can handle all that lol)

Yea, I've been following this game since its announcement. Paradox making a 4x-like has been a dream of mine since EU3.

The whole thing seems geared to great RP possibilities. You have text-adventures your explorers can partake in, you can genetically engineer your own people or create robots to replace them, you can uplift or outright invade primitive planet-bound species, you can tear a hole in reality and open the door for eldritch invasion, you can even play as AYY LMAOs and forcefully probe humans if you gain dominion over the Solar System. Pic extremely related.

Yea, I'm so fucking ready for this. Can't wait to see what Paradox will do with DLCs on this one.

If there turns out to be enough of us, i think they have a decent MP system set up. It also shares DLC as long as the host has it. I think a 420chan game would be sick.

I'm excited for total conversion mods. There are tons of sci fi universes to choose from. Star Trek is a darling of mine, but Star Wars, Babylon 5, any kind of sci fi novel you can imagine.

An awesome mechanic is ethics divergence. Basically where your populations start to change from your default ethos and traits. Controlling this element is an internal mechanic that helps fill out the mid game when it goes more grand strategy than 4x.

Here's a race maker:

This will probably be my first race. It's a global regime regime steeped in a hybrid of Stalinist and US Totalitarianism from Earth: Basically a nice technologically advanced race of slavers who extract wealth from other planets to make Earth a great place.

Oh and here's a Paradox multiplayer stream where the participants gang up to take down an AI controlled Fallen Empire. Skip to 44:00 if you wanna get to the action.


Fallen Empires are a feature where some AI players start out with far superior numbers and techs, but remain passive throughout the game as they are stagnant civs. Unless you do something to trigger them that is. Their triggers are decided by their sole ethos, if they are materialistic(scientists) they will murder you if you research a lot of dangerous tech, if they are spiritualists you better stay off their pristine holy worlds.

Needless to say the human players got smashed. Along with the frame-rate.

>Can't wait to see what Paradox will do with DLCs on this one.
The Stellaris Subcirclejerk is full of the same.
Breaks my heart to see this though.
Like, I know it's inevitable, and like all Paradox Games it will be swamped with DLC. But there's something so depressing about looking forward to being charged more for content before the game is even out. Especially if it follows the line of EU IV where you've got 1 excellent expansion, several good ones, and now we've gotten to the point where they aren't really very "expansive" at all.

Paradox are good at listening to the comunity and coming up with interesting DLC, but (in regards to EU IV) it's getting to the point where they should just work everything in the expansions into the main game. It makes zero sense at all for development (the Common Sense feature) or estates (from the Cossacks) NOT to be worked into national ideas or other base game elements, because they need to assume that not everyone owns the DLC. The game just doesn't feel "tight" anymore because you have what are essentially core gameplay mechanics being locked behind DLC.

I'm yet to buy Mare Nostrum and don't intend to until it goes down in price. I'm going to try and be as cautious as possible when it comes to Stellaris DLC too, because the more I think about it the less comfortable I am supporting this method of DLC.


Just been watching some of the Multiplayer stream there, but I felt it wasn't really doing me much good and I should find something else to do instead, only 4 days away now though!

Has anyone else been playing Mario and Luigi Paper Jam?

Combat wise its really fucking polished....everything else really sort of empty from the humor being really off, to there being next to no story besides "Both Bowsers kidnap both princesses," and don't even get me fucking started on how much I fucking hate Paper Toad quests....and I hate papercraft fights even worse

This game feels half complete and the other half is filled with needless shit.

Also...I can't help but be sad that I can control Paper Mario on my team and the fucking main villain is Bowser....again

The current rumor is that the final expansion is going to get released in late june and it's going to be larger than Witcher 2. I hope it's not too big though because I thought Witcher 3 kinda sprawled out of control and the lack of focus kinda hurt the game.

I thought Hearts of Stone did it perfect. I played it after completing the main game so it was the only thing I had to do and it moved at a really good pace and managed to make a game I've already sunk close to 100 hours into feel fresh and lively and I thought there were far more memorable moments from its story than from the main game.

That's not quite what that means. Each spec is independent. So they're saying they think you should run Windows 10 and have 16GB RAM, ideally. You probably need slightly more RAM to run in Win10. But not 10GB more.

I'm sure you could run it on 4GB RAM. There are very few games that can't be run on that amount. I constantly run shit under spec and never have problems. Just turn off the fancy bullshit. If the game isn't fun without those trimmings then it has serious gameplay issues and is a waste of time anyhow.

I don't usually grammar Nazi but Christ public schools are bad.
MGSV didn't really raise any new questions, at least not any good ones. Questions of character motivations and the overall plot (such as: What was the point of that "ending"?) are perfectly understandable. I thought, for the most part, everything was explained away in MGSIV. (Liquid/Ocelot, Vamp, etc.).

I already know some folks from the BWP thread are getting into this, so I figured there might be enough interest for its own thread (inb4 "trolol shill").

What it is: Harvest Moon/Rune Factory/Animal Crossing slice of life, farming sim.

What you do: Grow endless fields of hops to brew moonshine, romance and fuck bitches, get money, kill monsters, fish, chill with crazy homeless dude in the mountains. Fun as fuck, yo.

Protips: Grow berries for mad profits, and plan out your community upgrade bundles in advance so you don't miss rare seasonal items.

Harsh guys. My first thought was just some sort of space/location based learning disability. Like his brain is otherwise okay but it just has a blind spot for those areas hence his issues with the maps being beyond him.

I'm backing up this point. Every item I put up was a gold star and I'm pretty sure it included 3 fish and 3 crops, as well as mayo and some rocks, I think.

I'm going to expand on this post though. First off I feel like I should commend the dude for making this game himself, it must have been some task and it really is an excellently made game.
After modding in the anime faces (natch) and introducing myself to all the townspeople, I decided to try and make friends with the most immidiately unlikeable characters that were available, so I picked Pam (Grumpy Alcoholic trailer woman) and Shane (Total dickhead who stocks shelves) , and decided to go with Haley (vapid fashion girl) as the love interest. I don't mind the mechanics of friendship so much, it's identical to Harvest moon in that you chuck items they "like" at them and earn friendship points.

But jesus christ the writing in this game makes me think he might as well have not bothered. Animal Crossing did it's characters really well, with simple but unique characters with personalities that made sense within the context of the game. Harvest Moon did what it did but all the townspeople and scriptwriting was done well enough, although it's been a while since I played any HM and I could be misremembering this.

This game just chucks a handful of stereotypes at you and then gives them an character "arc" that comes in the form of 3 extra bits of dialogue a week, with the conversational text you usually get not reflecting much of this change.

For example, Haley starts off by just bitching about fashion and talking about how much she hates the town all the time, if I give her enough sunflowers she'll "open up" by telling me she's "stopped thinking about the mall so much" and she'd "like to go to the farm one day". I'd say she maybe has another 4 or 5 lines that reflect this change and that is it.

I feel that focusing on the believability of the dialogue from my anime waifus isn't exactly helping my cause, but I'm just raising something that I see as an issue here. ConcernedApe has done a great job with the art style, m…

There's nothing groundbreaking, but I thought the writing did a decent job at fleshing out the characters relative to other games in the genre. It's not exactly Deus Ex, or KOTOR, but honestly it doesn't have to be, and compared to other life sims where every character is pretty much a Mary or Gary Sue, it takes some moderate creative risks by covering more mature and progressive topics like homelessness, alcoholism, PTSD, homosexuality, etc. that other games in the genre wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. There' not a ton of depth to each dimension, but it's more attention to real world detail than pretty much any other life-sim has has bothered to include. I honestly don't get your comparison to Animal Crossing, because aside from a few special villagers, personalities in that game literally follow a few pre-defined, repeated archetypes and are virtually interchangeable between dozens of different animals, and it doesn't give any of of those archetypes additional personality issues to complement or flesh them out.

tl;dr it's not Hamlet, but it's better than most other attempts in the life sim genre.

Of course, wisdom and experience draws from many divergent sources, but we can't write out gaming from that just because it's (usually) recreational. I'm missing the days where a game would appear to be silly fun, or a neat challenge, but inadvertently changed my thinking. Let's post games that made an impact on your thinking. The criteria could be how you look at:

Martial arts/sports
Human Resources
Personal health/well-being

For me, games like Jagged Alliance, X-Com, Starcraft and other strategy games helped me look at certain facets of life through a more objective lens. I became distinctly aware of co-workers who had issues with one-another, or the time (sometimes called action points) could be far more detrimental than a monetary loss. Various RPGs helped me see the joy of mastering new skills and bettering myself. FFIX, GTA: SA, Deus Ex. Bio-Shock had a great mechanic that allowed the player to conduct automatic research on enemies with a sample provided, allowing greater effectiveness when fighting them.

Most importantly, these things didn't guide me through life and were never a crutch, but they made learning and growing more stimulating. I'd like to know what others' felt from gaming through the years, and hopefully get some more recommendations to apply this kind of lens to.

I only play hentai rape simulators. I'll let you fill in the blanks for what it's taught me about life.

yume nikki. for something with no dialogue and almost no words anywhere, that game communicated a lot of things.

Madness Returns was more art than game (but damn, that art so pretty!). Did you check out the Madness Returns art-book? It's gorgeous!

Think of it this way; The numbers on screen are an abstraction of countless actual humans. The EU series tends to make you a fanboy of state power. I know it made me one for a long time and lead me to being a fascist sympathizer. I grew out of it when I realized that the whole system of state power is pure evil and something we should try to outgrow. How would you like to be one of the countless dead conscripts of some incompetent autocrat?

Then again, I try to be something of a nice guy. I try to provide decent lives for my citizens, be forward thinking etc. When I take tons of land from a foe I make satellite states. I basically deconstruct rival empires and liberate their people.

I absolutely adore Undertale for how it plays with your expectations as a player and gets inside your head. Also gotta mention the effective use of leitmotifs and how on-point the soundtrack was during the ending. The attention to detail on this game is second to none.
