I hate what Mortal Kombat turned into. The fighting in the games has been improving since MK vs DCU but the story is ridiculous even by MK standards. I'm not necessarily talking about story mode here either. The new characters, changes to old characters, to many realms/ weird stages, weird character models... the list goes on. In the begging it was mostly dark Chinese mythology, essentially BloodSport meets big trouble in little China.

That and all the DLC shenanigans.

Gotta double post...

This idea that bigger is better when it comes to open world games. I hear a lot of reviews saying something along the lines of "The Witcher 3 is what open world games should strive for". I enjoyed The Witcher 3 but I would have been more than happy with a game half as big if it meant having half decent combat.

Undertale. It's a good game, but the annoying as hell fanbase that pushes it goddamn everywhere like it's the new MLP sure is annoying. I can turn it off easy but goddamn they can get on your nerves. I also dislike how much they force your hand into being a good guy. Yes, I get it, monsters good, weak and jolly, humans are cunts, I got the message 2 hours ago. Yes, these characters are awkward and quirky. Yes, you're so smart because you're giving a new spin on common videogame elements like saying the record's broken and that's why you always hear the song on repeat.
Many games let you be a cunt without a lot of penalizations because the bad end is easy to pull off, and it also works because it means you can blow off steam being bad so now you can aim for the best or good ending. Locking you out of the best ending unless I mingle with the files is dumb, same as reminding you that you're a cunt for playing the evil route first and then wanting to fix things. Jesus Christ, this is a nice message for children somehow, but having grown-ass people gushing over this is a tad silly.
I'm gonna get reminded that if I do the pacifist run and then the evil run I'm a cunt and that I'm an uncaring individual, Oh boo-hoo, over a bundle of pixels? Oh, here comes the jumpscare!

It IS a good game, it can make me chuckle at times and the music's fantastic, but damn if it isn't overrated and preachy.

Fallout 4 fucking sucked. I'm glad people have pointed it out too. The Fallout 4 steam review section and the top reviews are all negative as fuck. So much rage. They still have released the fucking GECK yet either.

PAYDAY 2 is perhaps one of the biggest scumfuck games ever made. Fuck Overkill.

Tripwire Interactive are the biggest, fattest, loosest cunts on the planet. Literally, worse than Electronic Arts.

Early Access is the cancer killing great game concepts.

Steam is literally 95% shit indie spam that nobody cares about and exists simply to make buck off Anime type nerds.

There are hardly any titles that have came out in the past 5 years that were worth buying. Video games are truly dead.

I find it really difficult to find games worth playing. What was so amazing and promising about the indie market shortly before it became so bloated was that it was full of people who truly cared more about making a game than making money. Now there's just SO MUCH stuff and nobody has invented a decent way of sorting through it. Half of it is pure garbage. Looking for games requires extreme self-discipline and tolerance for bullshit.

What people should try to remember is that you yourself are getting older and have played so many games, its hard to find something fresh and interesting. When we were younger, saving the princess was the big deal. It wasnt about saving the planet or even a country, it was just get your gf back. While there are a few games, like Tomb Raider for example, that aren't some large scale conflict, most game concepts have only gotten bigger. Saving the princess usually insint enough anymore. We have to save the country or the planet or the entire universe. As a side note, Halo is one of the few games that went straight to that and actually got smaller in scale with Halo 2 & 3 being about Earth, but ultimately the entire human species, and the later ones being based on single planets, although I haven't played much beyond Halo 3 so I could be wrong.

Think about how many games are about this kind of thing. Left 4 Dead and Just Cause are big, country wide events. Bastion is about saving all reality (as far as I remember, it's been a few years). Mass Effect is saving the galaxy, Skyrim, Dragon Age and XCOM are about saving the planet. You can see this with movies too, especially the Marvel movies, which is part of what made Ant Man so good, it was so scaled down compared to the other movie with their magic, aliens and apocalypse prevention. This, I think at least, is part of what makes the Batman games so good and is a perfect example of the increase in scale. You're not trying to save to save the planet from some alien menace, you're on the streets of Gotham, fighting regular dudes, for the most part. There's no extinction level event going to happen, you aren't responsible for billions or even millions of lives.

Anyway, I've lost my train of thought, but it is something to remember, we've been engrossed by these spectacles for so long, some of us for over 20 years, that we feel like we've seen it all or that everything feels like a reskin with a few extra features.

Having said all that, there is a lot to be said about Steam and the utter fucking shit they publish through Early Access and so much tripe that indie devs, and AAA studios, push out by the truckload and bullshit like broken Always Online and crappy DLC, as many people have already said.

people like you are clinging to the rotten straws that indie-devs giving them, because AAA sucks.

Yes, AAA-market sucks with the lack of innovation and dumbing down to the lowest nominator.
There is no real challenge anymore and no REAL fun or excitement.

AAA-games that are coop-focused aren't even really designed around teamwork and we all know about that cinematic-crap.

BUT: "Indie"-games are the same. Just with a smaller budget!
They try to be too artsy, every pixes screams "I could be a better Game if I had a bigger dev-team and more money"!
And the market is flooded by this half-arsed crap.

  • Guacamelee came out 3 years ago!
  • Super Meat Boy came out 6 years ago!
  • Divinity Original sin was very good, but not perfect. It got more and more empty and cut-out near the end. (also the soft boring OST was underwhelming!)
  • Shadowrun? way too linear to be really outstanding

tell me was there any super-great indie-game last year?

holy shit!
Where the fuck are your standards, people?!

If a AAA-title delivered this sparse of a content, you would go on full rage mode!
But because it's "Indie" you are piling this crap up!

"Prison Architect"... LOL NO!
yeah, if you ar into this kind of game... maybe.
But objectively speaking this is just another pixel-top-down-CIV-RTS-micromanagment-sim.

Kerbal Space Program?
Maybe if you have too much time at hand.
But either way, it is rather a simulation, not a game.

Underrail and Shadowrun...
Wow...
again, you are having so low standards, that its just embarrassing!

Underrail was so fucking short and repetitive!
Tried so hard to be "Fallout 2 remade" but kept beeing bland and on a loop.
Did you even finish it?
Short, backtracking galore and no really cool stories or sidequests. (or even areas!)

Shadowrun:
again, way too linear and I've never had the impression the characters have devastating weapons.
Man, even Fallout 1 managed to add gore!

Good thing is that Touhou will be there, and if ZUN ever ascends to another plane of existence, there will still be shit tons of people who made games with the Touhou characters, like Touhouvania or Super Marisa Land.
Touhou Racing was surprisingly good, I didn't expect much but it sure was fun. The tracks could be more lively and the game overall could be more polished, but it's still an achievement for a doujin company.

Jak 2 was terrible and Naughty Dog could have hd a great series of playformers instead they turned it into a GTA clone and added guns in the game. Nobody who played the original wanted guns that shit was random as fuck to me when I played it years ago. Dark and edgy was 'in' then and it fucked Jak up.

The checkpoint system was also fucked, oh you died? lol well go back to beginning of this stage, 15-20 minutes ago.

Jak and Daxter is still very good though. It's like an updated Banjo Kazooie, shame they had to follow trends and couldn't keep it a platformer. Trying to ride off the success of Ratchet and Clank and GTA but Ratchet and Clank always stayed true to itself and was always a TPS.

fighting games haven't evolved since street fighter 2 and there is no rational reason to have long complicated inputs and awkward circle motions for special moves. the whole genre is stuck up it's own ass so far that it isn't coming back out.

Games with no real challenge bother me. Not immediately games that are not difficult, though I suppose games that are not difficult automatically lack challenge. I've got the feeling that there are a lot of games that give you loads of things to do, but for very little reason.

This especially hurts my butt because I'm really down with the open world crafter/builder type of game. They give you a lot of options to build shit, but gameplay is often extremely rudimentary beyond that. Let's take Reassembly. It's got a very robust builder, balanced factions that differ a lot intheir mechanics, and a good bunch of AI factions. But fighting the standard AI just feels like a grindfest, and then you have to hope you run into a good player-built fleet.

Just give me something to do, games. Just an editor isn't enough. Kerbal Space Program has the right idea. It's even worse when the gameplay is supposed to be "survival", which means keeping a bunch of bars filled, and it's just the same menial tasks over and over again.

GTA 5 is overrated. Even though it has the largest GTA map, it feels emptier than San Andreas. After beating the game, I feel like there is little to go back to. Mission replay is nice and the characters are great, but it just lacks the charm of earlier GTA titles. I can go back to GTA 4 and have fun, whereas I get bored quickly in 5.

Agreed 100%

>I can go back to GTA 4 and have fun

In some ways I think GTA IV has gotten better with age. I appreciate it more now than I did when it released, anyway. The physics that lent the world a sense of causality, the AI, and the immersion factor of the game still hold up really well. The writing is a little more disparate than I remember it being, between the heavy handed satire and serious melodrama. But that said, the story was actually interesting and Niko was a great protagonist, regardless.

I know it gets a lot of flak for getting so many perfect review scores back then, but after 100%'ing the game not long ago and really getting into it, it's hard for me to think those scores were undeserved. GTA IV is a fantastic game. I just can't get into GTA V in the same way. I didn't connect with any of the characters and the writing bordered on just plain bad. It's far more of a parody of modern life than the biting social satire it clearly wants to be, and it just didn't feel like the same deal of fun, care, or thought was put into it. It's everything you'd expect and maybe a little less.

That said I didn't touch GTA Online, and that's supposed to be brety gud.

Could you sound like more of an ass?

I get that GTA V was a good looking game that controlled well and had lots of vehicles, which is sure to initially entertain even the dumbest of people, but let's not fool ourselves into believing it was written well. That would be pretty stupid.

Remember all the great characterization they gave Franklin? Or how invested you were into Michael's therapy sessions, or his family? Or hey, remember how happy you were with Trevor's singular character trait? He's crazy, so he acts crazy. Character done. Good job, guys.

None of the characters are fleshed out in the least. The only character with a remotely interesting story is Michael, and even that's ruined by virtue of the fact that his story remains so fucking boring for so fucking long.

Even in GTA IV's dumbest BIG AMERICAN TEETIES moments, the characters at least bothered to have believable dialog that would constantly and naturally reference and flesh out their back stories and ideals. Like all the conversations with Roman about the old country, or when he talks shit to Niko, making mention that he slept with a girl that Niko really liked back home. Even going as far to taunt Niko with that later on during a game of bowling or pool. And that's not even it. Characters and conversations would change accordingly depending on how much you ignored these people.

GTA IV's writing, as disparate as it can be, is far more natural, believable, and relatable than any of the writing presented in GTA V. The writing in that game is too ham-fisted with its nose held too high in the air to be effective satire in any sense, and worse, too jagged and full of forced humor to be an effective story in general.

No, GTA IV was ass. Honestly, I never played V since IV just killed my enthusiasm for the franchise. In a bid to create a "realistic" world they took out all of the charisma and quirkiness of the cast. Nico is so monotone and boring he somehow makes the mute protagonist from III look like Ric Flair. He could be elected president by the end of the game and I wouldn't be able to give a shit. Trevor may be a one trick pony by your admission, but no one in IV even has that.

I'd have been happier if they snuck a copy of San Andreas into the case.

He's far from "monotone", and even if he were, that would fall on the actor's performance and not the writing.

>Trevor may be a one trick pony by your admission, but no one in IV even has that.
Niko has clear goals and motivations from the very opening scene of the game. He's dynamic enough to show legitimate moments of sadness, humor, rage, etc. that never feels too out of place and falls in line with his established character, and surprisingly, he actually has a solid character arc, in which he makes hard decisions in an effort to change, given the "good" options in the game you can choose. All this coming from a story about a character not setting out to look for redemption, but for revenge.

In comparison, GTA V's writing is utter shit. With barely any hints of fleshing its characters out, let alone any depth to said characters, if you somehow managed to be invested in that story, and not Niko's, then that falls on extremely questionable taste, and not the quality of GTA IV's writing. The game is well written and speaks for itself. It's certainly no masterpiece, but in terms of GTA writing, it's hands down the best the series has seen.

While I agree that GTA IV lost a lot of the charm and quirks of the trilogy that came before it, it's also a different take on the franchise that also really works, if you put down your "it's different so I hate it" blinders. GTA V, precisely because of its lack of writing effort, just doesn't work as a narrative based experience. It plays fine, sure, but my point is it's not written very well and the story is the least interesting the franchise has seen in a long time.

V's story is fucking ass mate. You get to play as midlife crisis man with an annoying fucking family, Franklin "I have no personality at all" Clinton and Trevor, who appeals to children and edgy teenagers (oh my god guys he fucked the teddy bear lol). At least Niko, even if he was a touch boring, felt like a GTA protagonist.

GTA 5's characters are just a self insert of the developers, a plot device and a hamfisted attempt to return to the roots of the franchise.

I have said it before, Lamar fucking Davis was the best character in 5 and should have been the protagonist.

I'd like to note that I hope in the future open world games will create their worldspace like the first TES game Arena did.

You have a map, with various points indicating towns, bridges, dungeons, fortresses, castles, rivers, etc. locations. Those are all handcrafted "areas", designed by map designers.
The rest of the map is all randomly-generated based on zones, so a forest area would contain 75% chance for forests, 10% chance for a river, 10% chance for a swamp and 5% chance for a village.

This would circumvent the issue where a huge open world sucks the creative juice and time out of a team, and it would give some much needed realism to open world games.

Because frankly, 80% of a country is boring shit where nothing happens. "But I don't want to spend 4 weeks of actual time to walk from town A to town B!" You don't have to. Finally fast travel in open world games has purpose and doesn't feel like a cheap teleport cheat.

This guy gets it. I honestly don't understand how we get either games that are 100% randomly generated, or where everything is handbuilt. So you either get a boring, samesy world that doesn't make sense, or one that looks great, but is entirely too small.

Take Skyrim. If they'd just said "Falkreath is one big forest, so we'll just generate it and place our dungeons in it" would you have noticed the difference? No, you really wouldn't have.

I feel like I'm the odd-one-out when it comes to open world games. I love to explore, but there needs to be something to discover to make it worth it. And it needs to have some sort of function in the world. But most "exploration" games just give you a load of territory, and that's it.

Who the fuck started this tenkeyless craze?

Fuck not having a Numpad. This isn't your dad's fucking Apple II.

All of those goddamn keys are on the numpad, shitbird.

Okay, Print screen Scroll lock and pause|break aren't on the numpad. But look, they could be. Plus you know windows print screening is shit, Steam binds it to F12 anyway.

Scroll lock serves no purpose. A modern computer directory listing will fill your entire screen a dozen times faster than an American cop will shoot your dog.

Pause|Break is another relic of the goddamn 80's. Plus that's what CTRL-C and CTRL-Z are for. Pause|Break can eat a dick and fuck off into the trash bin with Dos 5.0 and Windows 3.1.

I don't want to put this in the Hyper Light Drifter thread, but I don't like how the main character of that game showed up in like a dozen other games before his own, most of which were before it even had a release date. Do the developers want to make a game or just whore out a character design to anyone who asks? At least the Shovel Knight actually has a game to his name.

Just wanted to say that GTAV is fucking great and the characters are the best in the series and I remember most of them, whereas I'd be hard pressed to give you the names of anyone apart from the 3 mains from V. I didn't even really know who the people I was killing in the last mission were.

V has a better map/environment, tighter shooting and the online. Everything else IV does better, and Liberty City feels more like a real place due to the great addons. Gta V's character switching coulda been incredible. Instead it added little apart from a handy way to get back to civilization if you crash into the sea.

Speaking of, soccer is just fucking awful to watch. Nothing is more boring than not having any of them score a single point for the entire match. And these people earn a fucking fortune for failing to kick a ball.

I don't even mind multiplayer games, except when your team members/opponents are the typical social reject that can't even perform basic etiquette. The only people worse than that are LARP players and nazis.

This is true. What the hell kind of sport encourages players to pretend they're crippled if someone so much as brushes against them? Any dynamic that rewards players for acting like they're injured and leaves no recourse for the opposing team is a bad one.

I think it's more of a social thing for the spectators, I mean the Europeans/Asians/south and central americans/Australians have social clubs and politics revolving around soccer.

Ever played a healer or support in a multiplayer game? I mean, I love it and I like to think I'm good at it (especially compared to things like damage or tanking) but holy shit do healers get dragged through the mud in every game if they don't have a close group of friends to play with.

If they don't have a good track record for trying new things then explain Warcraft, Diablo, Hearthstone, and vanilla WoW

Hell even stuff like Blackthorne was cool. I don't think Blizzard's first foray into any genre has been anything but a success, usually it's followups and sequels that get a bit hairy. Starcraft 2's campaigns, vanilla D3 though RoS really fixed the game, and the most recent WoW expansion being a total shitshow.

The only reason I'd try Legion is to see what they did with the whole 'melee hunter' concept. Shit like garrisons just isn't fucking fun, 'daily' content isn't fun. It had the best intentions (keeping people occupied) but it rapidly turned into a forced grindfest and a distraction from the lack of proper content.

I miss vanilla Alterac Valley, I miss battlegrounds that took hours and actually had you communicating with people. Vanilla crossroads PvP was a wonder of player initiative, high level players and entire war parties going at it for no reason other than to wipe out or protect an important location.

Blizzard used to be good. I'd say it all ended when they got activision to handle WoW so they could make D3, which looked so extra promising but untimately ended up being WoW isometric endition.

I highly doubt there will be any thing like warcraft 3 ever again too. That is a staple RTS simply because of all the different games you could play online. the birth place of dota Pretty sure those servers are done by now though.

Activision has nothing to do with any Blizzard operations, not sure where you got that idea from.

Activision-Blizzard, a holdings company, has multiple child companies, including Activision and Blizzard. For all intents and purposes, they are entirely separate entities, one has no influence over the other.

Blizzard has several teams. The Blizzard WoW team handles WoW. The Blizzard Diablo team handles Diablo. And so on. Activision doesn't do anything for them.

As for Warcraft 3, they just released a patch for the game. More patches are coming. Diablo 2 is still being maintained. The Battle.net servers for Diablo 1 are operational even today.

Hell, Blizzard was just hiring people for a Classic Games division to start maintaining and updating all of their old games.

You seem like you have a lot of info about Activision and Blizz. More than I can recite off the top of my head/ remember from reading about the merger at the time. That being said I can honestly say that WoW certainly felt VERY different after that merge happened. The only thing that stayed on the same quality (to me anyways. I'm probably just super jaded at this point) was the Cine's before every X-Pac.

I've put way more hours into WoW than I care to admit. Fuck I've put more hours into private servers than I care to admit. I feel like I should be able to describe why I felt like this but again I might just be a cynical douche when it comes to Activision rearing it's head.

Civilization sucks
GTA IV had a great story, atmosphere, writing and driving. GTA V had better shootan and more random bullshit to do and little bells and whistles. Also, V had a disappointing soundtrack.
GTA music:
SA>IV>VC>>>>>V>III
Fallout 3 had good atmosphere but was cartoonish and gay and had lame Bethesda writing. NV is derpy but amazing.
Dark Souls looks awful. I don't know why people like games with random bullshit deaths, a very steep difficulty curve, sparse checkpoints and an inability to pause.
PC is obviously superior, but consoles have a certain place. I wish I could combine the dynamism and power of PC with the social factor and approachability of consoles.

I'd like some handcrafted stuff and intricate details here and there and wilderness/provincial areas that are made by algorithms or whatever but not totally random. So the general lay of the land and biome would be determined directly by the devs, and the details would be filled in randomly. You could also have towns and cities that have dev made things and the other details filled in by the game engine. So the less important bits would be semi-randomly generated. You could also have dynamic plot/quest lines that only open up if you randomly come across them or meet some criteria, kind of like with the dark brotherhood et al in the newer TES games.

So, I've been playing Final Fantasy games for the past couple of months now, trying to complete each one. Out of all the ones I've played so far, IX happens to be my least favorite. I stopped playing at disc three. The pacing was awful, battle intros and combat are slow, Vivi is the only interesting character in the party, and trance system sucks. The only thing I liked was how you'd gain abilities through equipment. I thought that was pretty neat.

I may or may not give it another chance. I just don't see why so many people say it's the best FF. Maybe nostalgia has something to do with it.

I'm on that same FF quest, though I've fallen off a bit. IX is another one I haven't completed yet, because my first disc stops working near the end of it, so never continued. I remember liking it though.

I stopped playing FFXII like a bit past the raithwall think it was called. And past that forest and all that after. It's not too late. Really stopping that put it all in limbo. I've tried FFV After Years and FFX-2 since and both pretty good, but I'd like to think I will get back into FFXII and continue the FF journey.

I plan to start a Dragon Quest journey soon just to see how it compares to Final Fantasy. I've already got 4-6 on my DS flash cart. I'm also hyped for dat 3DS remix of DQVIII.

I want to do that as well, but it's intimidating because they all seem to be really long. I have DQ I and II on GBC, I might as well beat the first to start it off. I think it's only like 20 hours long.

They're not that long really.

They have a fair bit of grinding. But every single battle is tactical. Whereas Final Fantasy is 100% for the story, and the battles basically don't exist/could be played on autopilot.

There's no real grinding in FF, but the battles FEEL like a grind. There's tons of grinding in DQ, but each battle still matters, you're always pushing yourself to go further, try something a little more dangerous... DQ's game mechanics are a lot more interesting. The story is usually sparse, but also a lot darker.

Basically DQ is Dark Souls, and FF is GTA. You play them for entirely different reasons. It's apples to oranges.

The first one is short but also a little bit dated. Every battle is 1v1. It's still cool though, and you can definitely bust out a playthrough to see if you like the idea.

2, 3 and 4 are all pretty hardcore; 3 is especially brutal but maybe the best. The sense of accomplishment in beating it is amazing. And it's haunting. 4 has the best story overall.

Have you played the early Final Fantasy games, specifically 1 and 2? I ask because those do require a fair amount of grinding, and the battles definitely require strategy. The boss battles themselves aren't so hard, as it's mostly about preparing yourself enough and playing it safe/efficient throughout the long winding dungeons, if you manage that you're probably prepared for the boss battle, just be sure to heal.

Final Fantasy II was pretty crazy near the end, with tons of long dungeons one after another, the time I got to the last boss I just cheesed him with two blood swords to ensure victory.

That's why I feel intimidated by the DQ games. FFII was by far the most enduring game I've completed, though I still really enjoyed the challenge.

You know I'd been ambivalent about fallout 4's DLC, I know so far it's been a damp squib and I was hopeful that the third DLC will be huge and make up for it.

Then I beat the mechanist and it broke. I googled it and it's a common issue. I don't feel this is cut content sold after, it was created later for sure but so far the release schedule says it could have been in one expansion. It's also poor QC considering how overpriced it was.

Skyrim bored the shit out of me. I keep trying to get into it. Can't do it. Battlefront is lame. Batman games are corny as fuck. So many shooters. They have no appeal. Racing games are all 1 player with online MP. This is bullshit.

The only games I've actually enjoyed in the past few years are Fallout 4, Minecraft, the newer Mario Bros on the WiiU, and GTAV.

Siege is essentially multiplayer TDM and not much else. I mean, there are co-op missions but they're really just an extended training mode. Once you start playing online you'll probably never touch them again because the missions are identical.

It's not really a Rainbow Six game without Ding Chavez but despite its limitations I do enjoy it. I can't think of another game that nails cool SWAT stuff like rappeling, dynamic entries, etc. like Siege does. Needs more content though, and probably not worth full price (I paid 50% off).

Also, defending can be a lot of fun, IMO. Camping is kind of the point, yeah, but you can also roam around a bit (easier on some maps than others), try to catch the attackers off guard, set traps, etc. Really need to use the operators' gadgets to your advantage. I use Jager a lot - being able to disable grenades is a huge advantage.

I'm the same way. I can barely play games now that have a "medieval fantasy" setting because the medieval fantasy setting bores me compared to Fallout's post-apocalyptic setting.

I've tried to get into Skyrim numerous times, even tried Morrowind and Oblivion but found no real interest outside of Daggerfall. The whole medieval setting to me is just very bland. I like to shoot big things with big guns.

As one of those people that has made lengthy posts pointing out what I consider to be Fallout 4's failings, I didn't outright hate the game. Was just incredibly disappointed by it.

It really wasn't because I was caught up in the hype or anything either. I mostly didn't pay attention to any of the pre-release stuff. Fallout 4 just didn't feel like Fallout, to me. I think its biggest problem outside of any of the gameplay complaints I had with it was that I was just so bored and couldn't bring myself to care any less about the characters and their stories, aside from a very few handful of incidences, which feels like a sin in a Fallout game.

Different strokes though. I get why people enjoyed it. It was a little too rooty tooty point and shooty and really not much else for my tastes though.

Wuuuuuuuuuurd. It wasn't a bad game, it was just nowhere near as good as I'd expect the first Fallout game of a generation to be, based on my experience with last-gen Fallout games. I got more fun out of Fallout 3, Skyrim, and New Vegas than I did from Fallout 4. Probably would be true of Oblivion too but I never got around to playing it. Bethesda failed to exceed (or even live up to) their own standards, that they set.

Drives me fucking crazy. I hate playing games that I feel like I have to babysit to get optimal performance out of, or to reduce the amount of bugs I'm getting from it. I know you guys know what I'm talking about. Like, playing the game at a slower pace than usual to reduce pop in, making sure quests or missions don't break by doing extraneous shit, or generally not fucking around too much to avoid crashes. Pic related on consoles comes to mind for example. Game was a fucking nightmare when it released, and no surprises here, it still is. Thank fuck for PC releases.

Dirty Bomb is exactly the game Brink was supposed to be. It took them a few years, and the damn game still isn't nowhere near finished, but it's actually fun to play and mixes the right amount of TF2 with Enemy Territory/Counterstrike.

I remember a lot of Snipers in TF2 with that edgy Brink hoodie, though. It was a pre-order item for Brink, and it seems a lot of people bought into the hype.

I used to play a little Battlefield Heroes, too. It was actually quite fun at times, but they're not wrong about the grind being terrible. It was impossible to maintain a good loadout, unless you ground away at it every. Single. Day. Fucking horrible, and I dropped it when I discovered there was virtually no way to get permanent gear unless I shelled out money for it. Battlefield Heroes is a game that comes depressingly close to that second episode of the first season of Black Mirror.

For the thread in general: The grind can go fuck itself, especially in these games that lock you down when you get to a higher tier. I played a LOT of War Thunder, but grinding jets is next to impossible. Anything before that can be done, but jets take loads of time, to the point where most of my time is spent in the one jet I have, and am only halfway to the next. It doesn't help that Gaijin adds filler planes all the time, and sometimes even pay to win garbage. It's a pity, because War Thunder is one of the best sims I've played in a long time, and it's impressive that it gets tanks and planes so incredibly right in the same game. That's impressive.

But for fuck's sake, I've been filling your servers for years, and you still try to force me into spending money on ever more trivial shit. Especially the fucking tank camo is the last straw. That shit actually matters MASSIVELY in Realistic Battles. So now sticking a bush on my tank costs real money? I mean, I can accept that situation for some experimental sidegrade tank or aircraft.

Oh, and nevermind consistently not handling balance issues. For fuck's sake. War Thunder will forever be that game where I had more fun trying to land and take off with a fully loaded bomber from a difficult airfield. I saw half my team crash there, while doing so. And that illustrates exactly what is wrong, and what is right with the game.

And no, I didn't make it. I suppose I should have taxied to the end of the runway, and taken off the wrong way around.

Remember when the justification of consoles was ease of use?

With the rumours of a PlayStation 4k "NEO", it just shows that consoles are now adopting all the practices that turned people off to PC gaming in the past. We've already seen then attempt to squash out used game sales, most console games require mandatory installations, most console games need day 1 patching, and now we're seeing that even the consoles need hardware upgrades in order to keep pace.

I bought it to the convenience of consoles. Never again.

Preach it. Agreed with everything you said here.

On a somewhat separate note (I'll mostly be ranting here), this generation of gaming kind of sucks dick.

I bought a PS4, and it's basically serving its purpose as an expensive Netflix / YouTube machine. I've bought a few games, some of which I do really enjoy, but given the direction this generation is going, with open world games becoming increasingly uninteresting but more abundant than ever, a focus on remakes and remasters, and virtually everything else being shooters or pixel art indie games / walking sim indie games (unless we're talking Bloodborne or Dark Souls III - at least those games are still doing shit right), this generation is boring me to fucking death.

I want to play games that are on the level of the greats we got in the last generation. Aside from the Miyazaki games I've mentioned, I haven't felt like I've played anything that was remotely close to the quality of the likes of Bioshock, Arkham City, Mass Effect 2, No More Heroes, Skate 2, Red Dead Redemption, and the list goes on. Those aren't even my all-time favorite games from that generation, but in terms of quality, I feel like I'm not getting games like those anymore. Nothing feels like it has its own personality anymore. Triple A games feel increasingly expensive but more hand-holdy and poorly paced than ever. Open world games, and even a lot of indie games now, feel copy and pasted from what worked well before. Even something like Shadow of Mordor was just boring, to me. It felt like it took each of its mechanics from a blender filled with Assassin's Creed and Batman games, with the exception of one thing - its nemesis system. And it was praised out the ass for it. For doing literally one new thing. It did that one thing well, but I mean.. That was it? It wasn't a bad game or anything, but come on. I want more out of this medium. And don't get me started on how disappointed I was in Fallout 4, especially compared to Fallout 3 and New Vegas. Modern gaming just isn't doing it for me, man.

I don't know if it's just me becoming jaded, which is highly likely, but this generation has been a fucking snore fest for me thus far.

And it's not just the PS4. I've felt a lot of the same things on the PC side of gaming. The PS4 is just a more readily available example of a waste of money since I just bought it a few months back. The games that are releasing nowadays just aren't what they used to be. Which I know sounds like the most crotchety old man shit ever, but it's really starting to feel like I've seen it all and done it all before, when the 7th generation still felt like they had a lot of interesting things and new styles to explore during its salad days. By the end of that generation, I think modern gaming in the context that we know it had explored just about everywhere it could really go, at least as long as focus testing and marketing departments still play such a huge role in these things. Now it seems like we're focused on making things look or run better without worrying about the actual quality or how much fun the games are to play, or how satisfying their stories are to experience. It just doesn't feel like this generation has many places to really go to keep things interesting, and I'm just not feeling the magic anymore.

Right? All I play is Fallout 4, which can't compare to previous Elder Scrolls & Fallout games, Star Wars: Battlefront because it came free with my PS4, and GTA: V which was originally developed for PS3/360. It's like there's a ton of potential and it's all going untapped. If they had a game which could compare to Red Faction: Guerrilla for example, I'd piss myself, because they could do that *so much* better on PS4. Just Cause 3 is the closest thing, and it is one of the most fun PS4 games I've played, but unlike RFG, the missions are super repetitive and the storyline really doesn't keep you involved; the fun part of Just Cause 3 is fucking with physics. And, unlike RFG, actual buildings are still generally indestructible.

Yeah, I honestly thought the expansion was going to be a good thing, with interesting new cards and rebalancing a lot of the old ones. But instead it's mostly just pretty meh cards, and the old cards that got changed are very few in numbers.

I don't even know where the game is supposed to go from here? Totally dead in the water now. Hopefully Blizzard understands this situation and tries to fix it ASAP, so we don't have to wait for another 6-12 months for some real game changers.

I know I'm like 3 years late to the party and probably everything I'm about to say have been said millons times already, but I finally bothered to finish GTA V. Solid game, but the pacing was weird (the story peaked before the end).

Multiple character thing was neat idea, but the game suffered from that (and I remember internet being all over that shit at the time). During playing there were times when I just got into Michael's storyline and wanted to see more, but then the game forced you to change the character. But then again, I see why they did it, the whole story wouldn't work as well if we wouldn't see other people's side as well.

I still consider GTA V a masterpiece, perfect 10 game but thats simply for the sheer scope of the game and the fact that they were able to achieve what they did on last gen systems. It was the perfect game to end the PS3 / 360 era of consoles.

The game was fun and I did enjoy it a lot. but as you said the story did suffer from pacing issues at times. The three characters constanlty interacting was the focus of the story so there were times when one would be put to the side for the sake of the other two having a section were they could be the focus of a couple missions. The beginning being just Frank and Mike, then trevor jumping into the mix and having random pairing off with the three throughout and sometimes all three on missions. The overall story did suffer at time because of this though, like having to deal with Trevor and Mike wanting to kill each other for the last third of the game kinda felt dragged out.

Yeah, it's a solid game. I don't like Franklin, though. Why exactly is he even around? More importantly does anyone else notice how Franklin doesn't know what tone of voice to use in a given situation? He always sounds janky and sometimes the words and tone just don't fit what's going on. Like when Franklin calls Trevor up and is all "ey I'm following these redneck dudes who tried to put a rocket through your cousin's window!" or some shit. Trevor tells Franklin that he'll be right there and Franklin goes "Trevor! Eh!" in such a way that sounds like Franklin thinks it is 1. a bad idea and 2. an imposition.

Like. Fuck.

Franklin felt like the token black man from the hood to calm the tits of people wanting another CJ, being in Los Santos and all. He felt pretty inconsistent too, sometimes a playa, sometimes an angsty bitch. He was a pretty uninteresting character overall, his dialog sucked, his story sucked, his motivations sucked and his unique features sucked too.

I've said this like 30 times, but Franklin should've been the background character and Lamar should've been the main character.

Because the mod disagreed with his opinion. Pretty much as simple as that. Nazi mods are the absolute worst part of 420chan and it's been this way for a very long time. And hell, I'm saying this as someone who loves indie games and thinks the guy is a moron too. It just isn't a good reason to ban him.

It drives me insane that younger gamers will grow up thinking Skyrim was this epic game while older folks like me consider Morrowind or Oblivion as our favorite Elder Scrolls. I mean, let's be real here, Oblivion and Morrowind were way better in terms of an RPG than Skyrim; there was no quest guides/markers, no fast travel/yes transportation, there were stats you not only raised but also could get bonuses to when you leveled up, sometimes you'd have to go around town talking to everyone to solve a mystery, and the world around you isn't falling apart/hopeless but rather you're just a tiny part of the organizations you join/run.

But I mean I'm not gonna hold it against them. They were born too late to enjoy all these older video games that are less easily-accessible to new players.

You should see the Kingdom Hearts series. It's just Final Fantasy with a child-'friendly' (arguable point) Disney paint job.

They have a new app game out, and it somehow manages to combine the awfulness of emo teenagers on a vacation in Disneyland with the repetitive and annoying nature of phone app RPGs.

I never looked at Final Fantasy as anything more than "alright."

Like, I played and enjoyed FF VII, IX, XII, etc. They're good games and all, but timeless classics? Hardly. And while I can see and appreciate the artistry that went into FF VI (not to mention that incredible soundtrack), there are better JRPGs out there. Even in Final Fantasy's prime there were better RPGs. Pic related.

All of this said, Crisis Core is the one Final Fantasy game in the series that actually does deserve way more praise and attention than it ever got. Directly in spite of its angsty, emo bullshit it's an incredibly designed game and honestly worked a lot better for me than anything else the series had to offer. I'm hard pressed to say any other Final Fantasy game was objectively better than Crisis Core, in pretty much any regard other than music. And even then Crisis Core's music was fucking great.

And just to contribute to this thread, I fucking hate a lot of the popular gaming personalities on YouTube.

Markiplier, JackSepticEye, Pee Diddles, etc. I mean, it bothers me enough that they're the loudest, most extroverted people on the face of the earth, that never stop talking enough to actually take a second and think about the shit that's coming out of their mouths, but it's the fact that there are channels out there that are so much more worthy of your time. Creators out there that actually know what the fuck they're talking about, and don't put on these stupid, infantile personalities to appease the children. Pic definitely related.

And I get that mostly kids are watching the channels I mentioned. But that doesn't mean their popularity hasn't far outreached that age group. I'm in my late 20s and there are people out there close to my age that are eating this shit up, and I just don't get how you can sit there and listen to some screeching manbaby vomiting words and clearly feigning excitement in your ear day in and day out. It's the worst.

Then you've got your bottom of the barrel, appealing-only-to-your-impotent-rage and br00tal metal \m/ personality shit like AlphaOmegaSin, or the utterly illiterate and borderline mentally challenged Angry Joe. These angry personalities (even if Angry Joe doesn't really do the whole angry thing anymore, and since pretends he's an actual reviewer with some form of integrity) only exist so that your closed-minded, rage-filled opinions can feel validated. And people eat it up.

I love that gaming content exists. And I'm not at all surprised that the most popular ones out their are appealing to the lowest common denominator. I mean, that's what the lowest common denominator is - the widest appeal. So I guess it's less of a problem I have with the actual channels and these creators and mostly a problem I have with the dipshits who actively tune in to it.

Of course, "don't like it don't watch it hurrrr." Guess what faggot, I don't. That doesn't mean I have to appreciate the space they're occupying on YouTube. Clearly, I don't.

TBFP yell a lot and make a lot of repetitive awful jokes, though. Their peak playthrough was I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream where Woolie and Pat were completely invested in the story and being knowledgeable about it. I still watch them, but they're certainly not the greatest example when they're very polarizing depending on the playthrough.

GrimithR, SKS Plays, Stop Skeletons from Fighting Live, and LethalFeline are my go-to because they treat the shit as a hobby where they just upload videos and have actual jobs (SSFF has a Patreon and uses this as his job, though.)

In a lesser form, farfromsubtle and jefmajor have their moments.

There's enough content on YT to completely forget about the bigger guys. I often forget that PewDiePie/Markiplier/JackSepticEye/Critikal/TotalBiscuit/whoeverthefuckelse exists because I just watch whom I'm subscribed to. Same way that I rarely pay attention to Twitch streamers because I watch who I like and don't pay attention to who I don't like.

The jokes may be repetitive, but I wouldn't really call them bad. And screaming a lot? Compared to the likes of this fucking guy they're basically mute. And when they do get loud, I honestly don't mind it because they aren't beating you over the head with it constantly. It's only when something they think is actually funny or interesting happens as opposed to "OH MY GOD DOOD LOOK AT THIS SHIT XD" every possible second. There's sincerity in what they do, and in terms of tone, they couldn't be more different than the bigger names I listed despite screaming from time to time.

I definitely don't agree about I Have No Mouth being their peak LP. I mean, it's fine to have Pat and Woolie getting invested and theorizing and shit, but it's not like this is the only time this has happened. Their SH2 play through was full of that kind of stuff. Personally, I think it's the best when I'm watching them play any game they clearly really enjoy. Killer is Dead or Metal Gear Rising were probably peak LPs for me. Overall their LPs are pretty consistent, and not all that polarizing, in my opinion. The LPs like I Have No Mouth or SH2, or even Matt's NMH LP, where the tone is a lot quieter and there's a real sense of investment, are really in the minority compared to the rest of their stuff. If you're watching the channel solely for those types of LPs, you're going to be disappointed. Personally, I'm watching to hear a bunch of Canadian dudes shoot the shit and play games that I really enjoy. I think the quality of what they produce stands on its own.

I do, however, agree with you on SSFF and FFS. And while it's easy to forget about the bigger names when (clearly) there is a lot of great content to find on YouTube, when you're dealing with people in your every day life that do watch the kind of shit like Markiplier, and converse with you about it, it personally makes me wonder how any of my peers could possibly find redeeming value in this trash. It's not like I'm actively watching videos from content creators I hate just to have something to bitch about. Like I said, I don't necessarily appreciate the space that those types of content creators occupy.

Some of my favorites have already been mentioned ITT, but I really recommend Stop Skeletons From Fighting (formerly the Happy Video Game Nerd) for general console gaming. Check out PushingUpRoses if you're at all into classic adventure games, even if her goth grll persona can be a little much. Nikateen's SVGR show is great if you're interested in wrestling games or PS1 games in general. Super Bunnyhop is great if you're into analyses of games and the gaming industry, though a lot of people take his tone as whiny. I still enjoy his stuff though. Also, early Continue? episodes were really good. The more I watch the more I feel those guys are kind of wearing out their welcome though. What used to be funny to me is kind of grating now, but that said, I still support 'em.

If you wanna check out some really unknown but fairly good stuff, BenevolentDick (pic related) used to do some really great reviews of NES games. Now he does a lot of boring streams. Really out there and weird dude, but he's been around on YouTube for fucking ever, and there's fucking hilarious editing in his videos. There's a channel called Game Galaxy that does some really laid back reviews, but the channel's direction is kind of aimless past that. Still worth a look. And probably the biggest name I'll mention here, though still relatively unknown, is The 8-bit Duke. His reviews are spot-on with great editing and slick presentation. Does a lot of NES and SNES stuff but he also goes well beyond that.

It's been that way for as long as I can remember. Back around SVR 2008 it actually made a little bit of sense, because some moves were so fast that it was foolish not to have them in your moveset. Ranked was a legit fighting game. Nowadays the games are fucking sims and people STILL go hard. It's not even fun.

>Hello One Piece fans!

>We wanted to provide you with a quick update regarding the PC version of One Piece Burning Blood.

>We’ve been working diligently to match the console version’s quality with 30 FPS and 1080P resolution. We’re also working on a number of PC specific improvements for the game that will be available at the PC launch of One Piece Burning Blood including; Key Mapping, Mouse & Keyboard Support, and Controller Compatibility.

>In order to achieve these goals, we’re going to need a bit more time to put the finishing touches on One Piece Burning Blood for PCs. The game will be available later this summer, we’ll come back to you with the exact release date as soon as possible.

>We want to thank everyone for your patience and we’ll be back soon with additional updates for the PC version of One Piece Burning Blood.

>Stay tuned for more info soon!

I'm going to buy it anyway, even with them pushing the PC version back so they can work hard on getting that 30fps, but it still hurts. Bamco is my abusive husband and I'm the battered housewife who just sits there and takes their shitty ports with a smile on my face.

It's just Japanese culture in general. Look at the overall (not the exceptional stuff, just the average) anime and video games produced in the 90s and early 2000s and compare it to now. It's 98% waifu weebshit or edgy weebshit, anymore. They're a culture in decline, quality-wise, sort of like Hollywood over the last couple decades.

How is waifu/weebshit "mainstream"? I don't even play Fire Emblem, old or new, but I can tell you right now if they started forcing waifu petting dating sim horseshit in the next Front Mission or some other non-weeb tactical RPG, I'd be pissed, and it would have nothing to do with it being "mainstream" (which it wouldn't be, regardless), but because the style and character of the game would be greatly diminished with that weeb garbage.

People are critical of shitty subcultures changing established series, it has nothing to do with being an "entitled hipster".

As an SMT fag who will trash Persona 3 & 4, it's because they're just so far removed from any sort of "megami tensei" character. The games have always felt like a an Alighierian walk through hell in 80's cyberpunk style while essentially being Wizardy clones. Even Nocturne somehow managed to play and feel like a first person dungeon crawler despite being on the PS2. And Persona 3 & 4 eschewed all of that atmosphere for the TV tropes article on anime.

And I get that people like it, and I'm not telling you to stop liking it, but my butt definitely hurts that Persona 3 & 4 are retarded amounts of popular.

what exactly is wrong with The Witcher 3's combat? Sure, it's no Ninja Gaiden but it works well, allows for adaptive styles with more depth that most generic third-person action games. Honestly, I'd say it's on par with Dark Souls and given the way people suck off the combat of that infernally clunky game, I don't understand the double standard against TW3.

Honesty, I'd be more happy if the game world was half as big but with twice as much story. That's the reason why you should be playing that series ffs. Sometimes I can't help but feel that people have physically and objectively wrong opinions.

you're saying the only reason Cloud and Aeris (I don't care if the writers intended it to be Aerith, they decided the engrish translation was fine upon american release and Aeris is the name we were all given) are in Kingdom Hearts is because they 'fell into the lifestream'?

That's some lazy ass writing, the life stream isn't in inter-dimensional portal, it's literally just a river-like network of condensed life-energy, not to mention Aeris is dead.

I'm not defending the lazy points of KH, I just thought that them tying FFVII to it in that way was actually slightly believable which is what AC failed to accomplish. The lifestream is also a port of consciousness it makes sense you would die and go somewhere else you know? but the first KH was a lot less lazy man, they weren't just digging old movie plots up they actually had to have played FFVII to come up with that

I used to love 'em when I was younger. Like, I think I played through A Link to The Past and Ocarina more times than I can count. And I don't know if it's whether I'm just burned out and jaded but I can't fucking hold interest in any of them anymore. Both the ones I used to love and the ones I'm not as familiar with. It's all very much been there, done that. I also just don't believe they're designed or paced as well as I once thought. Dungeon pacing is generally good but the overworld stuff (especially in the 3D games) gets really slow and kinda boring sometimes.

Oh, look, another opinion I agree with. I have a friend who is a giant fangirl for link, not just because of the game, but because of link for whatever reason, I guess she's into young men/boys who only speak in grunts and illegible war shouts.

I also generally don't like top-down dungeon crawler games in the same veign as early zelda, like Binding of Isaac. My best friend is obsessed with TBoI but IMO no matter how many extra abilities/items you throw into the game or remastewr the graphics, it doesn't change the fact that you're playing a boring top-down zelda knockoff.

I resented the fuck out of PS2 after it kicked the Dreamcast to the curve. I so badly the Dreamcast to win that console war. It had amazing arcade action games, and their library was great. I bought at at least 60 dreamcast games, all 4 controllers and vmus thinking was my contribution into keeping the DC alive.. Ever since it disappeared into the abbsy I knew videogames were not going to be the same, and thats when I just play PC games mostly.

I used the translated ROM of the 1st SNES game with SNES-Station, and ran it all off of USB. If you've got Swap Magic working you should just do the extra step to install Free MC Boot. Running PS2 games off a hard drive or externally powered USB drive dramatically improves the load times on EVERYTHING and saves that fragile disc-reader for when you need it.

I don't know why they're the most popular variety of shootemup. Stuff like R-Type and Thunder Force are dead now, and even with the aesthetic, instead of badass bio-mechanical horror like R-Type or cyberpunk stuff like Einhander, all modern shootemups are about anime girls fighting other anime girls. and they're all vertical bullet hells, so they're even more boring to look at with all the bullets taking up the screen.

I like touhou mostly for the music, the pc-98 games are like classics of FM synthesis. It is absolutely shameful how the shmup genre has devolved to basically touhou clones, and somehow the Pokemon snap/touhou games are the most innovative shmups out there. Ever since the death of the arcade, shmups have gone by the wayside. I think the last good horizontal shmup I played was gradius V :(

yeah the music in any given shootemup game is usually gonna be decent at least. I've heard a couple of touhou tracks and was fairly impressed. not enough to make me play any more of the games though. I need cool visuals if I'm gonna play a shootemup. nothing will ever top the original R-Type level 1 theme for me though.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXrxov_0oj0

it doesn't even sound as good on any of the console ports or arranged versions.

>pokemon snap
wow I guess that is a shootemup technically isn't it. it's weird how innovative that game was considering it was a pokemon spinoff. It wasn't just some pointless rebranded pinball or mystery dungeon game, they made something entirely new. Course it was Hal Lab working on it, they know what they're doing.

Oh shit, I was actually referring to the touhou games that combine camera use + bullets, not literally pokemon snap... Each stage would pretty much be a pattern, and you had to charge a camera and take snapshots of the boss. The photo would clear all the bullets from where it was taken, and some of the stages got really complex requiring you to snap photos to survive bullet walls and bursts and shit.

But damn, now that you mention it pokemon snap itself was innovative as fk. I even replayed that game not too long ago and it was still cute and fun and full of secrets. Didn't they have actual arcade machines of pokemon snap, where you could print photo-booth style pictures of your pokemon? At least I remember taking a memory card into blockbuster or someshit and getting photos lol.

This is now the petty argument thread

Anyways I've been playing SMT more, got the reconstruction swordsand was thinking of levelling up to get the super armor but I'm starting to think it isn't worth it. The levels are like 20000 exp you're lucky to get 200 a fight and I have five levels to go. There's also better things to fuse and buy but I don't have the patience to get 2mil for two guns that will be replaced later. The stunlocks and estoma make me think I'm prepared enough to advance to the final dungeon without so I might skip it.

Also they should make a Mario where you play as Bob-omb like Bomberman kinda my nephew thought of that

I just wish we could have games with PS2-level graphics but with no load times or pop-in or framerate drops or anything like that. Instead the focus is now on the lust for 4K and HDR, and at what point will it be enough? Is the cost for the pushes for resolution and color depth that untrained eyes won't appreciate worth it? I know some people don't care about framerate and things like that but I think we should perfect what we have now before we try to move on and make it harder for everyone when the need for such things comes around.

Anyone who says GTA 4 Is better than 5 is delusional.
5 had better EVERYTHING except you couldn't push people and the one hit ko's and fighting were questionable.

In 4 money meant nothing and there wasnt much to do beyond the missions.. and I play these games like a psychopath, I've done everything there is to do. Driving was fun, but the limited cars felt so similar, and the map got boring.

People hold on to 4for some reason I just don't understand. The ONLY thing 4 has that 5 doesn't is the ability to push people and force them off cliffs in satisfying ways... but at a cost of realistic physics. Nobody reacts like that in real life. 4 was quirky as hell.

I don't know how people could like the driving mechanics in GTA4. I take arcade driving physics anyday of the week, it's just what i grew up on with GTA3, VC and SA. I'm not surprised they changed it up in 5 and I'm glad they did.

I appreciate your help, I really do. However this didn't seem to fix anything. I've had no problems with recording videos through the controller before this update.

At first, I thought it was a network problem, so I tested playing games offline. Then, I thought the sluggishness was due to bloatware installed with the update, so I removed all of it. Then I thought maybe my anti virus (AVG) was using up all my CPU so I installed Avast instead. I've tried allocating processor resources via "performances options" under the control panel. No results. Windows 10's "anniversary" update just ruined my computer. I'm calling Microsoft support tomorrow, and if they can't help me, I think I may be done with PC gaming entirely.

I don't have issues with the Anniversary Update so either I'm lucky or there's a common thread the people who are getting issues have that no one's figured out yet. As for me, I'm only on 10 because I have a Z170 motherboard and putting Windows 7 on it was too much trouble.

I just want ONE competent fucking builder game that isn't up its own ass with pleasing the autistic fanbase that just tries to push the building engine to the edge for no fucking reason. When I buy a game called "Simple Planes", you know what I don't want? Piece of shit, broken ass car-building mechanics. Fuck. Off. The plane-building mechanic is barely functional as is, because the game is a simple as balls tablet-port that got more popular than it banked on being. Polish the actual fucking game, piece of shit devs! Fix the horrible controls, the shitty camera, or just add a few more actual fucking challenges that aren't races that I can win with my simple as shit racer plane. GIVE ME SOMETHING TO DO!

But that's the problem with all these games. They're always a sandbox of possibilities with no actual fucking goal. Same fucking thing with Besiege. I managed to beat so many fucking challenges with simple as shit machines I built for the early levels. GIVE ME SOMETHING TO DO!

And the final fucking straw for me was when Robocraft went tits-up. That game actually worked. I enjoyed it. It was possible to have an edge on people by building smartly, and the interface was easy. And they done fucked it up. And now it's just another shitty F2P multiplayer shooter with a horrible grind and shitty gimmicks.

All I want is a fucking building game with some actual fucking gameplay.

Fuck.

I haven't touched it in ages, at this point. I had just ground out a mega module when they scrapped the entire mechanic. Pissed me the fuck off, that did. I actually liked the megabots. I liked that my well-built plasma hover was excellent at dealing with them, too.

And the arms race became extremely tiresome. They'd add something, and it'd be OP for a bit, and then it'd be nerfed, and it threw off the balance between the existing weapons. I think I had the most fun with the game when it was still simple, there was no healing and there were still pilot seats. It was much more tense, and design seemed to matter more, because you could build a bot that was tough by design, or you could core or disable enemies with smartly placed shots. It was a great concept ruined by overambitious additions and changes.

I don't like Majora's Mask. I don't think it's a terrible game but I just don't get why it's praised so much. The main drawback for me is a combination of the 3 day system (aka a time limit) and the god-awful dungeon design. 3-day system itself is not bad at all. But combine that with the absolute worst dungeons of the series and you've got yourself a shit game. The sidequests are where this game really shined.

I'm sick of fighting games where your enemy can juggle you to death with only 1 or 2 juggles. It is so fucking retarded. It takes such little skill to memorize a 10-hit combo and how to follow-up into another one instead of actually familiarizing yourself with all the character's moves and developing great reflexes.

Mortal Kombat did it right making it so that juggles do progressively less damage so that a 10-hit juggle does only like 25% more damage than a 4-hit juggle, and the opponent essentially cannot get trapped on the ground.

But fuck fighting games that incorporate projectiles.

Well-designed combo-centric games usually have some mechanic you can use if you're on the wrong end of an hour-long combo. The good thing about them is you will always have a chance to use it at least once per round and if you misuse it, then better luck next time. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is the first fighting game I traded in because it didn't have anything like that. Get hit first and fuck you, you lose.

you know what's terrible in fighting games? quarter circles and full circles. it's just awkward to do, especially on a d-pad. idk who thought that was a good idea. I wonder how many obsessive fighting game players get carpal tunnel from that shit.

Garou is easily the best animated fighting game ever made too. there's games with higher resolution sprites, but none with so much attention to movement, even by that same company.

Oh yeah, Garou is gorgeous. I love the little details like how Rock fixes his hair after a big attack, or how Kevin does his little hop thing. Sometimes I like to pause a KO with one of Butt's supers and just look at it. They squeezed every ounce of beauty they could get out of that old technology.

Because some idiot thought it was a good idea I guess? I dunno, 2d can work if you pull it off, SFIV looked alright and Guilty Gear Xrd looks amazing. Unfortunately for KOF 14 they just rendered plain 3d models of their characters without really doing anything with the art style to keep it visually interesting.

If you're playing Garou on an emulator, there are codes for playing as the boss characters. I think they're just selectable normally on the PS4 port.

>to play as Grant: at character select go to Dong Hwan, hold start button & press up, up, down, down, up, down, then any button.
>to play as Kain: go to Jae Hoon, hold start & press down, down, up, up, down, up, then any button.
>both characters are tournament legal, so no matter what anyone says you're not cheating by playing them, but they are both cheap as fuck against an inexperienced player. Fuck Kain.

I've played a whole goddamn lot of video games, OP. Like, more than most people, I think. This shit is my only real hobby aside from music, and has been for as long as I can literally remember. So at first I was like
>fuck this, too much work
but thinking about it, it actually seems kind of fun to compile since I haven't before, and
>tfw I've honestly got nothing better to do
So I'll try to make this as definitive a list as possible, just for the sake of it I guess, although it mostly won't include games beaten more than once across multiple platforms, and I'm sure I'll miss some no matter what. I also won't be focusing on PC games. There are lots of DOS games I beat as a kid and many PC games later on, but there's just too much overlap with the games I'm already listing, really, and I was never primarily a PC gamer. Mostly I'd turn to PC to get better versions of console games. So just console games here.

I've been exposed to fighting games all my life and it wasn't until Tatsunoko vs. Capcon that I actually understood them and had a chance. People are just now starting to get into it now that Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is on the horizon and it happens to be similar. Niggas, where have you been for the last 7 years? It was always good and you all refused to see that just because it was on the best selling system of the last generation. I thought Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was going to be an evolution of it and I traded it in in disgust after finding out it was just Tatsunoko gone horribly wrong.

Virtue Signaling: The Game confirmed

Horizon Zero Dawn is currently sitting at 88% on metacritic after about 70 reviews have rolled in. A lot of said reviews are by women like Patricia Hernandez and Lucy Obrien, aka hardcore femnazi, SJW's. Everyone is praising this game because of MUH FEMALE PROTAGONIST and how there are tons of "people of color" in the game and hardly any of said reviews are about the technical aspects of the game. Welp the game leaked early and its a buggy, broken piece of trash. Not to mention the voice acting is absolutely atrocious.

There is nothing wrong with wanting or enjoying a game due to its female characters but to give this game a high score only based on that is wrong

10/10 from Giantbomb and 9.5 from IGN ladies and gentlemen

Are there any games with totally randomized protagonists, where every game can start with a player character with any combination of gender, orientation, skin color, etc.? The only one I know of with anything like that is Rogue Legacy. I wonder what implications that has for representation, where none of your attributes have any meaning and are just there because it was possible.

lol I thought that game was just a no mans sky update when I saw the commercial yesterday. It looked okay if a bit generic. If it's a buggy underdeveloped mess everybody is obsessed with, that's about what I expect from AAA gaming. Can't say I'm too interested in buying. Trying to distract with social justice stuff is clever though. You usually only see that in lower budget indie titles. Someone should tell EA and Ubisoft about this. It's a good angle. Maybe they can make the next Splinter Cell about a female otherkin activist.

People had an absolute shit-fit when they started randomising spawn race in Rust (not sure if it was random gender too). A lot of white dudes complaining that they can't feel like they're truly the character if their skin isn't the right colour, ignoring the fact that most games have white male protagonists and that's just life for women/other races.

Racism and sexism are dumb, but so is militant opposition. Why can't people understand that if, for example, you don't think there are enough games with black female protagonists, then the best way to change that is to make one or support someone who will, rather than shout at everyone else and tell them they should be creating their product/art differently.

I mean I think having a broad range of gender/sexuality/race/whatever in any fiction makes it more interesting as you get to see things from different perspectives, and that's extended to protagonists.

The actual reason for low diversity in stuff is that vidya have historically mainly came from relatively wealthy white dudes and therefore would tend to feature white characters, and as people just keep on paying money for these games the industry sees no reason to change.

Is it a problem? I think it's less than ideal. Positive role models, including fictional ones, are more relateable for kids if they're the same race/gender I would guess, but as a white dude I don't know how it feels to never see my race/gender as the hero. White dudes save people, often swanning in to single-handedly save an entire group of people who are somehow utterly incompetent themselves. I think this trope has been maintained for so long just because video-game structure tends to require the player to be king badass. I mean, Far Cry 3's entire plot is a satire of the white-saviour trope and people didn't even realise because it was too subtle and very few people realised that the main character and all his friends are intentionally unlikable pieces of shit.

I don't know where I was going with this because ADHD is a hell of a ride, but essentially it's a complex issue and anyone who is too extreme on either side is a fool. So the same as any issue really.

tbh im pretty sure the characters in farcry 3 were bad because it's a bad game, the writer sounds like he's full of shit and trying to save face after the fact.

also no, it's because for a long time the demographic was white men, so they tailored their product to suit the people who were buying it.

Creating said game isnt the problem. This is what they should be doing. The problem is with the militant game journalists who praise said game and reward said game with high review scores simply for being progressive.

I havent played it yet but I have seen enough to know that Horizon Zero Dawn should NOT be getting 9/10 scores. Its buggy, broken, and a mess. Yet todays journalists dont care about any of that.

I know this is just some stupid comic to laugh at and shit, but some of it really makes you think. Imagine an RPG that treated its leveling system like aging. You only get weaker when you inevitably level and you lose skills over time. You're not as nimble as you once were. You have less stamina and energy. Eat shit, Dark Souls.

Video games don't mess around with dis-empowerment nearly enough. I mean, we get all of our upgrades and shit taken away at the beginning of Metroid games and Symphony of the Night, but that's only so you can build up to being a badass again. I say make a game where you start fucking awesome at everything, and only progressively get mechanically worse as time / levels go on, as a way to introduce a natural difficulty curve.

And I get why we don't see anything like this a lot. The main selling point of a lot of vidya is power fantasy. There are people out there that literally won't play a game if it doesn't make them feel good enough about their time investment. I know you want to believe that people like this don't exist, but they really do. And sadly, this is who publishers cater toward; the lowest common denominator. And there's nothing wrong with power fantasy. Some of my favorite games are blatant pieces of power fantasy. But sometimes we just need things that flips shit on its head. inb4 it's "just a bad idea." If done well I really do think this could make a great game.

I mean, does anyone have anything like this they could point to as an example? if so I would fucking love to see it.

This is the same reason Christian films are so terrible. They only care about pushing the message that you need Jesus and not at all about the quality of the product, and the only people who actually like it are the people who don't need the message.

On the subject of Rogue Legacy, the developers announced a new beat-them-up called Full Metal Furies. The playable characters are all female and multiethnic but at no point in the video or the copy do they make any deal out of it like any other game would. That's the right way to do representation: Pretend it's normal and eventually it will be.

I haven't played it yet, but there's a game on Steam called Farabel that toys with this idea by having you start at the end of the story and slowly work your way backwards to the beginning, getting progressively weaker with each jump into the past. It might be similar to the idea you're talking about.

If you want to look smart by using neologisms, at least use words the proper way "post-patch age" would mean patches are a thing of the past but because you argued against >>694840 I assume you mean problems at release can later be fixed what would make the use of patches a necessity.

But you see even then the criticism would still be valid because games don't usually get the full treatment after launch. Developers are either working on DLC or the next project. The money has been made, the season passes have been sold. Fuck the customer. It makes me so angry that people defend this practice to this day when this shit has been happening again and again for over a decade. Try to come up with a counterexample, you won't because you can't. This is aaa game development, you should know by now how it works. And funny you post Beth-shit because their games have game-crashing bugs to this day.

FUCK. At least Killzone actually looked like a decent shooter with a cool, distinctive style.

I've been playing a lot of The Witcher 3, and it bears a lot of core similarity to this, it appears. Set protagonist with narrow skillset that you develop, story and cutscene-heavy, mature themes. But the Witcher does it so fucking well, I'm kicking myself for not getting into the series earlier. I've been explaining ti to my friends: Cutscenes in The Witcher 3 have actual fucking cinematography. They're dynamic, and they use different shots to establish tone. In this cutscene, it's one 15-second establishing shot, and then it's pretty much shot-countershot for 3 minutes straight. It's the same with Bioware games. It's boring, and it does a lot to take people out of the experience. Nothing makes you aware that you're playing a video game more so than looking at virtual puppets flapping their poorly synced jaws for minutes on end.

An important part this ignores is that the people being saved are ALSO white. There are very few games where this "white saviour" complex is played straight. But yeah, majority white countries make majority white games. That's how it works. Black people are 10% of the US population, and even less so in the rest of Western countries except if we're counting South America. Though, apparently, in Brazil there are many people who consider themselves mixed, like the Coloureds of South Africa, so the percentage that considers itself black is lower than in the US.

In the post above I noted how this game is being made by our only competent AAA developer. Do you think I feel represented by this game? Or by the games they made previously? Nope. It's all intended for the international market, with as little Dutch-ness in it as they can manage. Fuck me, I said I was playing the Witcher 3, right? You know what I notice in that game? Dutch names! People actually have Dutch fucking names, even if they mispronounce them in the voice acting. And it made me realize it's the first time in fucking years that I actually feel sort of represented in the game, as a member of an ethnic group.

Because no, I don't automatically think I'm represented because the dude has the same skin colour. An American white dude main character is pretty much the same as an American black dude main character to me. But I get people (Americans, mostly) speak in my stead to say that "white people" are overrepresented. And by that they mean "American white people". Shit, it's not like people are tumbling over each other to include subsaharan African (black or white) characters in their games, either. "Black" also means "American black".

So, as someone who's never represented in the games he plays: You can deal. It's not a major issue. Games have this unique feature where they're interactive, so in the right games you can still impress your own values upon the character you're playing.

But I'm kind of tired of Americans speaking for us because they control the market. It got especially weird with that Kingdom Come game, where Americans were bitching that a game taking place in Medieval Bohemia didn't have black people in it.

>It got especially weird with that Kingdom Come game, where Americans were bitching that a game taking place in Medieval Bohemia didn't have black people in it.
There was also that one guy who said Left 4 Dead 2 was racist because it had black zombies, due to it taking place in a zombie-infested New Orleans.

I'm a mix-and-match Asian dude myself (Filipino-Chinese-Spanish, pick whichever combination you like) and I've never once thought about representation. I will probably never be represented the way a bunch of people want to be now and I don't see the appeal in it anyway. I mean, in games with customizable characters, I always try to make characters as dissimilar to myself as possible just because I can. So a lot of my characters are dark-skinned blonde women. I suck, so why would I want to be myself when I could be so much more?

Not to say there isn't a problem with the majority of playable characters being a single race and gender. Variety is nice, but forcing it out of reactionary trends is even worse.

There's a challenge for you, game designers. Explore the possibilities of mixed-race characters and see how many different backgrounds you can cover at once before it gets muddy. Too many single-race people in media these days. No bump

The Spanish really got around, didn't they? When we have a fullblood person who has dark skin and dark hair, we tend to joke that they must have Spanish blood, on account of us having fought our war of independence against them.

Honestly, games that want representation should just use detailed character editors. Of course, I also never really play as myself. It's kind of boring, I think. Skyrim had the best excuse for it, given how we tend to look more like the Nords than any other video game "race". Still played a Khajiit.

In the end, video games make me feel represented by my actions. I'm not the guy with the white skin, but the guy who shoots fire from his fingertips. That's just kind of how identity works. I might look like a Nord in real life, but if those assholes are shouting at me that they want to turn me into a rug, that makes me feel more like a cat than a Nord.

Good character editors are my fetish, though. I think Saints Row 2 did it best, because it also had detailed options for editing the body of the character. And they recorded the entire script in six different voices. I mean, in Mass Effect I just couldn't play a ManShep because I disliked the dude's voice. There I was, with a grizzled-looking Mexican with a crewcut, called Raoul Shepherd or something, and out comes the heroic American hero voice.

I also enjoy looking at cutscenes more when I get to oggle my own character. It's satisfying to see your work be put on a pedestal.

The topic of representation is really a huge clusterfuck. Like I used to be all for it until I realized I just wanted more dark-skinned characters because I love chocolate skin. If there's a character creator, I try my best to create a qt dark skinned magical girl if possible. A lot of people advocating for representation maybe getting it confused with fetishism, which I don't have a problem with because internet, but I don't think the people who get into these arguments realize that. I guess you can say I'm all for diversity in games, but it's more I just love to see all sorts of beauty, not for some political BS.

I'm not gonna get pissed at the developers of Witcher 3 for not including black people for example, or even dark skinned people. I don't know I haven't played the game but I remember people talking about it.

I just want dark skinned videogame characters to fap too honestly. Too bad PSO2's character creation looks like shit apparently

Well here is the probably with overworlds in games in general. Gonna use your post a launching pad here See the overworld puts pressure on the developer to make this big wide open space between things for the player to explore. And ultimately thats what it is in large part just space. So many many many games have this big open map just for the sake of being atmospheric.

I think with the trend of open world games its worse in the last 10 to 15 or so years than its ever been. Because people think that they need big territories to roam. But the bad thing is that this takes the focus off of level design, off of giving the player a chance to experience things on the developers terms. Players say, I want lots of room to roam. And some developers say fine, here's an empty field.

And that's not to say that some open world games aren't fun. There's plenty of them that are. But the reliance on open world as a selling point often comes down to big empty environments. And big empty spaces don't quite excite my imagination in the same way anymore. Now that I'm older I don't want a world that's big for the sake of being big. If my character is traveling a world there should be stuff in it. Otherwise there's no real satisfaction.

Expansive levels are nice, hub style paths are nice. But how many games since gta 3 and morrowind have given you either an empty city or empty fields to wander? Quite a few. And its cause they take the basic idea of these popular or beloved games and try to apply it without giving the player nearly as much to do.

The reliance on open world as a mechanic isn't enticing to me the player from an objective perspective now. I can think of plenty of games with more level based designs that feel more alive than some of the open world games I've played. And thats what bugs me. Scope for the sake of scope. You can climb the mountain, but is there anything at the top?

Sure I want to fly off into unknown territory and discover lots of unknown stuff. But do I really want to wander the empty spaces? The idea that traveling big empty patches of space has become a staple of the way that some games are designed bothers me to no end. I mean sure a dev can turn around and make a game that generates endless or near endless territory for me.But that in and of itself isn't a good thing.

Sandbox gameplay just for the sake of being a sandbox. Because you can walk to AND fro. I don't know just the entire things a mess to me. And I'm glad to see less open world games and gta clones coming to market. The whole watered down notion of what a sandbox is to some developers is sad. In fact I think some games that have an open world element would've been better done if they had just stuck to developing their missions better. That size as a design focus just scatters a developers resources way too much.

I needed to get that out there. Been bothering me as I go through some early 2000s games.

I'm so upset about community standards in gaming.
I loved the Souls series' co-op and PvP. It was so awesome.
Monster Hunter had awesome co-op, too.

But now I play Paragon all the time and I want to punch literally 50% of the other players in the fucking face.
Every single game I play, one or multiple players bitch and whine that the team isn't composed how they want or they don't like who's going to what lane, and they fucking bitch and bitch and bitch and then start using personal insults and every time you slip up they say GOOD JOB!
I can't remember the last time I played Paragon and didn't tell someone on my team to chill the fuck out and shut the fuck up and stop acting like a little bitch.
Had this same problem in WoW many years ago.

I got this answer the other day in another place, and it launched into yet another great big debate about why Street Fighter V sucks. Damn me for thinking a Guilty Gear gag manga strip was actually about Guilty Gear.

On topic, the NieR:Automata PC port isn't that great. I have to play 720p windowed to get decent performance, and that borderless fullscreen workaround being passed around doesn't help me as much as it does others. If I want to play fullscreen, I have to put up with either poor framerate or syrupy game speed. That or just upgrade my GTX 960.

I think eventually it will become a good game. It'll take a lot of time and money, way more than should be warranted, but Sony has more console market share than Microsoft and NIntendo combined so they have every reason to keep dumping cash into it just to keep it off the competition. It's not like either Capcom or Sony are going to just give up on it like a lot of people seemingly want them to, not while there's a lot of money to be made from live events and ESPN deals.

If you have a dedicated video card and an integrated Intel card (like most machines these days) then make sure Automata isn't defaulting to the Intel card. I had to use the Special K "mod" to make Automata even recognize my 1060. Beforehand it assured me that card didn't exist. I respectfully disagreed.

A 960 should be just fine for it, and fullscreen should give you more performance, not less, since true fullscreen increases the priority of the process. With the exception of cutscenes, which are borked right now no matter what you do. (I get a fluid 60fps in-game but cutscenes drop like a rock to between 30 and 15 depending on context).

Maybe Special K was the workaround you used and it just didn't help, but it couldn't hurt to double check your video options and make sure the game is even aware you have an nVidia card installed.

Has anybody bitched about Andromeda yet? Because I'd like to bitch about Andromeda.

It's been a long time since I've been so angry about vidya games. I'm usually pretty zen about things. But Andromeda and EA as a whole is such a giant fuck you to consumers that it became the first time I've ever demanded a refund for a game.

To begin with, I had never used Origin before and didn't really want to. But you gotta play by the rules maaaaan. So I bit the bullet and grabbed the client. Which was unwieldy garbage that was simultaneously overly simplistic and ridiculously obtuse. I have to hand it to them for finding that admittedly impressive balance. The first red flag came when I tried to pre-order the game. I don't buy into pre-order dlc culture so I just wanted the base game, no frills. But Origin was having none of that shit and the buttons for "standard" and "deluxe" would not show up. No matter how many times I re-logged and restarted the client. Only the dumb $99 version would display. Funny. But potentially just a glitch. Shit happens.

So I navigated to the actual webpage and just bought it from there, but surprise surprise when I put the standard edition in my cart and proceeded to checkout suddenly it was replaced by the $99 version. I straight up kid you not I clicked to buy the standard edition, the page refreshed, and the $99 edition was in my goddamn cart. There is no situation on the planet where that is even remotely a coincidence.

So I decided to hold off on buying the game. Came back about a week later and tried again. I was able to buy the standard edition just fine. I can't speak with certainty, but I'm assuming what happened before was a random tactic they pulled in the hopes that some players would just buy the more expensive version out of frustration. Or maybe it really was just a glitch. But if so it was a monumentally fucked up glitch, you have to agree.

Then came the pre-load. Steam downloads everything just fine. Never once had any issue with it. Origin however kept restarting my goddamn download. The percentage would go up, then suddenly drop. I'd see 17%, then alt-tab back in later to see it had magically become only 6%. This back and forth cost me about 250GB of data (I checked) before it finally downloaded the fucking game and it didn't finish until the 23rd, a full two days after launch. For comparison, I just downloaded Doom on Steam which clocks in at about 66gb and it took me only about four hours.

By now I was already soured, and the news on the net about the games quality had me very worried. But I was determined to make my mind up for myself. So I loaded up the game and immediately my rage grew as I struggled to make a character that didn't look like Mama June trapped in a wind tunnel. I finally said fuck it and got in game. I played for about 10 hours as every glitch grated on my last nerve, the terrible voice-acting put me in a constant state of cringe, and the boring plot made it hard to stay awake. All to the point that I finally rage-quit and immediately filed for a refund.

EA refused at first because I was apparently just outside the refund window, so I took to the phones and chewed out some very unfortunate call center monkeys until finally they gave me my money back. Andromeda is everything that is wrong with the gaming industry. It was a cheap turd that EA made Bioware pinch out half-assed because they knew it would sell gangbusters on name recognition alone. They didn't bug test it. They didn't even play it. They paid for the cheapest talent they could get their hands on and shoved whatever was excreted from their noxious behinds out the door because fuck it we're going to buy it anyways so who the fuck cares. That $150 Million dollar price tag being bandied about was $150 Million in marketing and the actual development budget was whatever lint and change the Executives could find in the coat closet.

Fuck EA. Fuck the sellouts at Bioware. And fuck every gamer out there that is fine with this shit and keeps giving these crooks money.

No, I found Special K since I posted that. It runs well enough now, but I still need to play at 720p for a decent framerate. I have no idea why Platinum always uses half the game's framerate for cutscenes. They've been doing that for years and I can't think of any good reason to.

Hi again, I'm gonna bitch about people who bitch about localization and censorship.

Now I'm all for making sure import games get proper localizations. There's nothing wrong with that. I don't play Fire Emblem so I don't know the specifics of the localization of Fates but from what I can tell it does seem like someone dropped the ball... not that it seemed to affect sales any evidently. I'm also generally against censorship and I tend to prefer game features that one region had intact when released for another. The entire boob slider thing with Xenoblade Chronicles was silly.

But there comes a point where you obsess about this sort of thing and you become overly sensitive to any and every change made is some sort of SJW conspiracy and Sarkeesian has a gun held up to some poor Japanese developer's head. Yeah, a lot of infamous changes were done to "prevent cultural outrage" but the real reason behind it isn't kotowing to some agenda, but it's to make sure they make as much profit as possible.

There was a huge whinefest back when Tales of Berseria was released in English because one scene was changed to make it less graphic. On the official Facebook, they said the reason was basically for the game to get a lower rating. Admittedly people did have their reservations but as far as I can tell that was the only scene that was changed in the entire game. Again you have people think that this was a plot by Sarkeesian to make the game more feminist friendly or something. But in reality this isn't the first time Scamco did this, nor will it be the last. Fact is, they cut story content all the time if it means they are able to sell more merchandise.

For example, in Xillia a character blames himself for the death of the parents of another. Inside the context of the game itself it makes it seems like he murdered their parents... except in some "extra materials" you could buy it turns out that that wasn't the case and their parents died by someone else entirely, but they still feel guilty about it due to the circumstances. Now why was this cut you may ask? We'll probably never know but I'm pretty sure it was because someone thought it would be offensive, but would have been useful to add in some side stuff that could be sold for extra profit. Ironically there was a scene that was "censored" in the English release, but original scene was so basically COLDSTEEL THE HEDGEHEG edgy retardedness that you could have completely removed it altogether and nothing would have changed unlike the former situation I was talking.

This is getting too long and autist so tl;dr - Weebs are oversensitive dweebs I still love anime and weeb games though, nobody cares about some culture war, just maximum profit, and Scamco is Scamco. The age of bad localizations are mostly over, and I give XSeed games respect for dealing with weebs.

Okay last thing. I get why people are all about this sort of thing, they want to preserve the original meaning of the story. But the thing is I tend to give localizers the benefit of the doubt that it's gonna be as accurate as they can convey because some things aren't just gonna be able to translate well, especially to a non-weeb audience. Any discernible between the original and translation is just gonna be a case of them doing their best under the circumstances. And unlike fantranslators they usually are under a time limit of some sort so they don't exactly have the privilege of checking their work twice even if they actually want to, or if they're not ordered to make a thing this way by some clueless higher up.

And even fantranslators aren't the pinnacle of accuracy because people argue over that sort of shit all the time.

And that's taking into account that the plots of video games are usually written by a council of some sort, not just one person, and I know Japanese and American culture are different, but you're gonna get someone on the writing team who disagrees with the "approved" plot. And that's an entirely different can of worms.

So unless some idiot decides to brag on twitter that they intentionally localized something badly to piss off a few autists who weren't even going to buy it in the first place, I'm going to give localizers the benefit of the doubt that they're trying their best, and not part of some conspiracy.

I've read all these screeds and more, so I'll just add that you aren't a real weeb unless you learn the language the original works are made in because you will never, ever really be the target audience anyway, no matter how much you "respect" the directors. You know as much about their culture as they know about yours. If you have the time to comb over two scripts at once and point out changes in meaning and share your manufactured outrage by pastebinning them out of context, you have the time to search "how to learn japanese" on Google.

OK guess I'll talk some trash.

Online games are on the whole worthless imo, the entire grind progression of like every MMO I've played is so out of whack with no respect toward the cool as fuck pacing you can get in a directed game. The progression toward Gacha type games in general is dread inducing, even fucking overwatch has a gacha. Competitive games that are played online and require responsiveness/reactions to perform well are a complete joke. PvP can be a ton of fun, games like Guilty Gear are fuckin sick and a blast to play but for me it's gotta be offline multiplayer, or fully directed single player. Need way more directed coop games and I'm so tight that there are almost none of them being made.

I feel like that it's really more backlash towards the hamfisted nature of "politicizing" western video games that was happening a few years ago and it leaking to localizations. I honestly don't know how bad the problem was since I don't really keep current, but considering how anybody who's not a deranged /pol/tard is sick of politics at the moment, I honestly don't expect any bigtime developer worth their salt to blatantly pander to any side anytime soon, if ever. I'm aware of the thing with ME:A but that game has more issues than political pandering.

I never really expected localizations to be 100% perfect, not even accounting for errors that were already in the original. And I think the majority of people realize this, it's just that the more vocal purists whined while everyone else play the fucking games.

Very true. Politics pouring into every single god damned corner of everything is fucking maddening at this point. Its gotten worse than I ever remember it being.

This whole notion that politiccs is invading all these spaces that don't need it further frustates it. Its not that devs can't have feelings and stances, but it gets tired when everything you want to play has some agenda that gets hamfisted and fed to you.

And I sure as fuck don't mind disagreeing with their ideas, but it feels like it gets pushed harder and harder in. As thought its demanding a reaction, and well I don't care, so of course just getting it thrown at me raises a reaction.

Even the last deus ex has a little bit of politicizing. And its just this era where that sort of shit breathes through the pores of everything gets me annoyed sometimes. Cause all I want really is to play. And politics feels like a stupid fucking shouting match.

I see it as a trend. I don't see how on earth it could last. But I sure as hell don't enjoy it.

Are you seriously whining about politicizing, in a Deus Ex game?

You will probably be able to get the Mercy skin around Haloween time. The Tracer skin was for the Olympics so that is probably never coming back. Or at least, not for another 3 years

Its the way its handled its the attempt at staying current that bothers me more than anything. I'm well aware the series is heavy on the stuff, but there wasn't some sort of attempt to relate it to modern times so directly till now.

The analogue for those who are nanotech enchanced and regular racism isn't even a bad subject. Its just not handled that well to me. And I hate the idea of developers trying to tow the line to what's going on currently. The first deus ex is like the perfect example of how to do politics in a game.

See while the first deus ex touches on ideas of oppression and conspiracy, the way that they did this last one is much more pandering. It feels like a cynical attempt at selling copies compared to the organic storyline of the first game.

They're planning on adding trading soon. It will make them more neoshekels to do so.

Ah, I see where you're coming from. You're not wrong. The first Deus Ex was something that was way ahead of its time in terms of predicting things that now seem very prescient, whereas the new games (which I still loved) are less interested in predicting the future than they are in telling a more contemporary story that within the confines of the pre-existing franchise. But I don't think that the more limited narrative vision is something that they can do much about. They're very obviously restricted by what they can do, given that it's a prequel to an already established IP, and there's only so much you can do with the story to keep it feeling like it belongs in the early Deus Ex universe, without subverting the feel of the universe that was established in the original.

I just hate Super Smash Bros Brawl and 4 for watering down things so much.
