Playing this Elder Scrolls F2P card game. It's pretty fun actually.
I haven't gotten very far into it yet, and I'm sure it will get more difficult, but I'm digging the strat. Pretty entertaining for a F2P card game.

And since I used that pic to start thread, I actually went and picked up FF7 again. Man, I love turn based RPG's, but there are some things in this game that I seriously hate, the main thing being that it's one of those early 3D games so the backgrounds are a fucking mess. In the words of AVGN, it's a classic "where the fuck do I go" type of game

Been playing rocket league more and more lately. I'm only level 13 so I haven't played that much but the more I play it the better I get little by little. I still suck a lot, dont get me wrong, but at least I've been getting one goal per game usually. Every now and then I just have a bad time and get no goals or good passes or anything but thats ok
I see these crazy ass goals sometimes on leddit and what not and they're a little discouraging knowing I'll probably never be that great but still I have a lot of fun with each match. Every time I protect the goal from an incoming ball or get an ariel hit is a win for me

It's nice, but I feel they oversold the customization aspect since there's only maybe 10 weapon types I've seen so far and all the other equipment is just randomized stats like Diablo with some uniques thrown in. I'm only to difficulty 11 though, so I'm hoping I see more variety later on, but with how these games tend to go I'm not too optimistic.

Pulled an all-nighter yesterday to try and fix my sleep schedule and BDO was down for maintenance, so I decided to skim through the weekly sales. Came out the other end with The Quest for $5. Reminds me of like a stripped-down, mid- to late-90s era Might and Magic game. It's not amazing or groundbreaking or anything, but I'm a fan of the formula and it's turning out to be surprisingly competent (especially given that it's a mobile port)

Now this shit just fucking hurts. I thought this is going to be an easy platinum trophy to get, just keep pressing X and enjoy the teen drama shitshow but it's probably going to be one of the most painful thing il ever have to go through in my videogaming career. I haven't even gone through the photography class and i already hate everyone in this game and myself for ever installing it. Im not sure if getting the platinum is worth it since my friends probably will laugh it me for having it but i kinda need to level my account. I go it for free via PS+ but seriously this is just awful. I can't believe C-Higgy loves this shit, what the fuck man?
Il try to get through episode one, if it doesn't get better i'm burning my ps4 and move on

IDK why you care about trophies so much but welcome to the worst-written game of all time, or at least it's tied with every game David Cage made by jerking off on a notebook and then using his baby batter to write the design doc

You can't quit now dude. You have to let go and let the game's badness wash over you until you beat it. I love Life is Strange because it is so retarded, so badly written, so cringe-worthy that it basically puts first-timers into this transcendent state of being, because every moment of that game is even shittier than the last one, until eventually your criteria for "shitty" is permanently lowered, and then you'll like all other games much more simply on the basis that they aren't as bad as Life is Strange.

That game is like having a bad /psy/ trip that ends up making you a better person. It's also a great litmus test to see if anyone you know is an idiot, if they play it for more than one episode and don't want to puke their stomach out.

The dialogue in that game really is the worst ever. What are everyone's favorite awful lines? Mine is this one: https://youtu.be/OnIODgqUHxw

I've been juggling TEKKEN, Guilty Gear Xrd, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (which unsurprisingly runs like absolute shit,) Brigador, and Paladins as my current games. I want to polish off Deus Ex quickly because the technical issues don't make it a game where I can play long before everything starts melting in-game.

Besides that, Paladin has been my 2nd most played; it's easy to pick up and play. I've been being a shithead with Viktor and his 30% bonus damage while hipfiring and testing out Grohk as a support. Only complaint I have are people who are overly confident in their flank/damage picks and proceeding to bomb hard with them.

How are the loading times?
The last copy of the show that I bought was 13 or 14, and probably the worst thing about it was how long it could take to sim through parts of the calendar/load games. Made it annoying to play road to the show when the loading screens were almost as long as the 4 ABs and 3 or so fielding plays you got in a single game.

Loading times are short, but I don't know how it is since I got mine from the PS Store.

The last one i've played was The Show 12, so I don't have much experience with the game outside then. I love the presentation of the game so far. Baseball is really comfy to listen to and play in games.

My starting pitcher allowed himself to get homered off of three times, twice by the same people. I thought the Reds would be easy, but they put the boots to me in a 4 run inning. Two of those homers were back to back. BUT I HAVE THE LAST LAUGH SINCE I TOOK THE SERIES 2 GAMES TO 1. But I have to face the Nationals in a 3 game series at home. Time to fail again just like the Phils do in real life.

IDK how you can play like that, I get really upset whenever an NPC dies, and not in the sense that I care about them personally, but that they might be relevant to a quest later on.

I remember I once got a rare event in Skyrim, where a dragon literally spawned inside of Whiterun. It landed on top of Breezehome and just annihilated all the NPCs that weren't essential. Had to autistically load the autosave and try to kill the dragon before it killed anyone else. When I succeeded, it's skeleton sat in the center of town for fucking ages. Damn annoying.

Last night I noticed there was a remaster of Wonder Boy III: the Dragon's Trap on GOG. Since I played the fuck out of that game when I was a kid and I was high as balls I immediately bought it.
The new graphics are kind of ass in my opinion, basically the definition of generic. Retro visuals and sounds are on fucking point though so that's how I play, nostalgia going full steam ahead.

The Omar are probably the most memorable thing that are new to IW and they're fun to interact with to the extent that you get to interact with them. I just meant that I think Invisible War deals with a lot of the same themes and ideas that the original Deus Ex had but they're explored better in the original game.

Just bought the entire Baldur's Gate EE series. And holy fuck this is better than what I remember. I had the boxed version back in the day, but the D&D rules went way over my head. Then I tried BG2 when it came to Steam, but I was generally far too high to get it.

This time though. Feels weird how almost all modern RPGs just don't compare. They don't make 'em like this anymore. Oh well, PoE2 is in the works...

I played Heart of Darkness for PS1. I liked the parts that were about figuring out how to get through a harsh, alien environment without getting killed. The longer the game goes on, however, more and more screens are just about killing tons of monsters, which I didn't like as much. Luckily the game is really short, and it ended right before I got bored with zapping shadow monsters with a lightning gun. This isn't intended as a critique but this has to be the shortest multi-disc game ever. I didn't clock myself but I'd say I got through the 1st disc in about 3 hours and I was done with the whole game in about 8 hours total.

Here is your warning that everything that isn't the actual game is complete shit, with lots of terrible 3D CGI cinematics, an ugly Jar-Jar-esque race of friendly aliens, and the worst kind of lazy ending there is. Don't play this game unless you already know that you like cinematic platformers. If you don't know whether or not you like cinematic platformers, I recommend trying Abe's Oddysee or Abe's Exoddus (both also for PS1 and maybe other platforms?) instead.

As a backup to BG EE, I'm playing EU4 as Protestant Austria. And so far this has turned out to be a really cool game.

After winning the 30 Year War and making the HRE protestant, I focused on regaining the throne and consolidating the Empire. Once my strength was enough though, I initiated Warplan Remove Kebab which turned out couldn't have come at a better time. The Ottos had eaten too much of Hungary and gained a coalition against it. So as I was dealing with their fuckhuge armies, the rest of Europe joined in including fucking France. At this point I got a PU over what was left of Hungary at last as well.

As I was making a peace-deal with the Ottomans, I noticed Byzanthium somehow had survived all these years in Rhodes. Instead of taking the Balkans, I returned most cores in Greece to them and allied them. Then the Byzanth AI decided joining the HRE was a good idea and suddenly Greece was under the Empire. Never had this shit happen before wtf. They also totally agreed to converting to Protestantism.

So now I got a protestant resurgent Eastern Roman Empire as an ally and prince of the Empire. My victory over the Turks cannot get more sweeter.

You're not missing much. From what I remember of it the characters were all pretty stereotypical and the animation itself nothing special at all. Story completely forgettable, just felt like something they wrote out as to not disturb the rest of the story from the game. Just watch Event Horizon instead. It's pretty much Dead Space without necromorphs.

Man, I love Another World. One of my favorite games. I remember telling some of my friends about that game in high school because I found out about it through emulators, I was all like "guys you gotta play this shit, it's cool." They all told me they hated it and that it was pretty bad. But I loved it.

My only problem with it is that after you play through it once you can blast through it in like 15 minutes. The gameplay just doesn't hold up after that initial run.

It's totally worth it, and it's been ported to modern systems in HD, goes on sale fairly often too. though you could easily emulate one of the many older versions.

>>702280
yeah, even though it's a platformer, every screen is a sort of puzzle. and once you know what to do there's nothing left but a few platforming skill based segments which still aren't that hard. still pretty great during the intial run though. I wonder what you even call this genre of platformer. Another World, Abe's Oddysee, Heart of Darkness, etc. They're distinct from other puzzle platformers like Donkey Kong GB or Braid, they're all control kinda similar to the old Prince of Persia minus combat, and all share certain qualities and themes with each other.

I've heard them called "cinematic platformers" on many occasions, including the original Prince of Persia. I'd say that's about right. Another surprisingly good one is Nosferatu on SNES. Game is awesome. It's a cinematic puzzle platformer with beat 'em up combat mechanics. Blackthorne is also amazing and the player character looks goofy as hell. Dude looks like the motorcycle riding teacher from Boy Meets World. Pic related. I used to joke with friends that Blackthorne was really a game about that teacher and he was out to save Sean Hunter. Sorry, just had to share that.

I think i liked this game the most growing up because it centered around an odd kid and his dog. Other cinematic games didn't really appeal to my kid self like Abe's Oddysee, they were just too weird. Plus those games can be very unforgiving, heart of darkness wasn't a cake walk but it didn't brutally murder you every chance it got like so many cinematic platformers of the same style. Also correct me if im wrong, but i remember when you die in the game you just restart in the same screen or the one before.

I've had blackthorne on my to-play list for a while now, I've got the 32x version sitting on my hard drive. apparently that version has an extra level and looks a little nicer. but I hadn't heard of nosferatu before. I'll have to check this out.

>>702296
honestly, while I LOVE oddworld games, the first one was kinda poorly designed in terms of difficulty. it was largely sucker punches, and puzzles solutions could sometimes be pretty esoteric. The game was unforgiving in general. the atmosphere and graphical style are a lot of what kept people trudging through it. myself included.

Depends on what you're after, really. The 32x version is good but it uses digitized 3D graphics (think Donkey Kong Country or Killer Instinct) while the other versions use pixel art. I like the look of the SNES version, personally. Either way, Blackthorne is a game that should be played on whatever you can play it on, it's great.

As for Oddworld, I've always liked Exoddus more than Oddysey, and a lot of that is down to Oddysey's unforgiving design. Exoddus just felt like a way more fair game. That said I still haven't beaten that game. Played the shit out of the Windows version as a kid though. I remember making it really far, like past the outdoor sections and into the Soulstorm brewery, but I remember getting stuck on an incredibly precise section. It's a game I've been meaning to go back to for a long time now.

DS3 here.

I made a new character because I want to rock Morne's Greathammer. I know this is frowned upon by some, but I've been ganking at Pontiff Sullivans to farm souls. Thing is, the fastest way to lvl up without going through NG+, NG++, NG+++, etc is to soul farm through pvp. One kill now gets me 15,000-20,000 souls, and it adds up after an hour.

My dude is SL160 at the moment; I need more def and poise for this build to be a stomper. Will probably stop at around SL200.

The way I see it is people who hate gankers need someone to hate, and a reason to feel good after winning. I invade in the area too, and it's hard, but very gratifying after dishing out a hard won beatdown to a 3 man crew. Plus there's almost never a 1v1 match in that area with invaders. Gankspankers gank the host as much as gankers do, plus invaders have the computer enemies on their side which they use to their advantage always.

I dunno. If you want a fair fight, get in on a fight club. Or play the match duels.

Still playing Dat Armored Core Verdict Day.

I recently decided that in order to make my main biped build more practical, I had to adopt a pulse gun (laser shotgun) to melt tetrapods faster and ditch my favored Medium-size napalm CE missiles for some high-explosive VTF missiles in the hopes that my pulse gun will suffice as my main option to tear down enemy shields while the missiles do effective damage to all enemy types.

I just hope I'm not shooting myself in the foot trying to use the VTFs again because they can't break KE shields like the CE napalm missiles can, they're slower and have a trajectory that is more prone to being shot down at the trade-off for nobody being able to out-beef the damage they deal.

I don't think its shit or even really that dated, especially compared to Baldurs Gate or Neverwinter Nights. I feel like most of the hate that Dragon Age Origins gets is because of its absolutely garbage sequels and for being the first game to show signs of the downward spiral that Bioware fell into. There is nothing wrong with the game itself, just the circumstances around it that cause it to be remembered poorly by some people.

Well I wasn't being entirely sincere, I had a lot of fun with DA. I'm just having a huge BG craze right now, and playing those games makes Bioware's faults all the more clear.

It's not D&D yet it tries to be, while at the same time it is still rather dumbed down for "streamlining" purposes. Also, story is cool but the overarching plot is a straight Lord of the Rings clone.

Which is really the issue of Bioware. They seem to focus too much on the story to the point of neglecting the game. Same thing happened to Mass Effect; They toned downed mechanics and amped the story. It works ok in MA2 because the story is good, but beyond that it's a downward spiral.

From DA2 though it is truly shit for console lovers.

I disagree. I bought Dragon Age: Origins at full price, because I still trusted Bioware as a developer. I consider it a serious mistake, money and time down the drain with very little enjoyment in return, and after also being disappointed by Mass Effect 2, which I also bought at full price, I made the decision to be very, very careful about which games I buy in the future. And Bioware has lost me as a customer.

On the surface, Dragon Age: Origins is a decent game. I mean, it's not outright BAD. However, it was very underwhelming, and very disappointing. Maybe I ought to have seen it coming, but I didn't. But there are a few things that made DA such a poor experience for me. First of all, there was the hype. This was billed as the spiritual sequel to Balder's Gate, mind you. And right out of the metaphorical gate, it showed itself to be not that at all. The writing was, in every sense, underwhelming. A plot about a rundown organization fighting some ancient evil? Please. The Darkspawn were reskinned Orcs, and nothing more. The worldbuilding was insipid, basically real life washed from all that makes real life interesting. You had pseudo-French people, but they weren't as interesting as real French people, for instance. And pseudo-Christianity, with none of the idiosyncracies of the real thing.

DA has the laziest gameworld I've ever played in, and that includes the D&D sessions run by our powergamer DM. But what made it worse was that the encyclopedia in the game hinted at a much more interesting, imaginative history for that world. When you've got this ancient world sounding slave society with mutated, magic addicted overlords, for the love of God WHY do you set it in the time after that, when everything is brown, drab, and boring?

The characters were slightly better, but most of them talked way past the point of being interesting. Sten was cool, because he didn't. I appreciated his curtness. And I suppose that standard Bioware wisecracking guy was legit funny at times. Most NPC's were both forgettable and longwinded. Frankly, I think Eddy Gordo is right: Bioware has no idea how to marry their narrative themes to gameplay, so everyone just talks your ear off while the world itself seems dead and artificial. And this makes the super serious plot fall on its face.

But the worst insult was that Dwarf faggot in the main camp. He offers a quest, and after you take it, it turns out it's DLC. I will never understand how people still joke about Bethesda's Horse Armour, but everyone just glosses over Bioware's crap. I think they stopped doing it, but trying to sell me DLC through an in-game conversation and putting that shit in my quest log... it's the shittiest way I've EVER seen someone try to sell DLC. And Mass Effect 2 was pretty shitty about it, too.

Oh, and the gameplay was weak, too. Magic was the only real way to play the game. Melee was boring as sin, and Stealth was only marginally more interesting. The spells were sort of fun, at least, and the few spell combinations that were there were cool. But in-world commentary on magic was bullshit, and you could never actually do all the shit people constantly say mages can do. A real problem with games like these is how you can never feel truly powerful, because you are constantly aware you're only allowed to exercise your power with the game holding your hand. One thing I recall noticing about the combat was that there was no real way to use any tactics. Playing as a mage with a mage-heavy party, I wanted to set up Sten and wise-cracking dude to from a front to protect the mages. And the enemies just ran straight past them, the entire thing devolving into a furball. And the maps were your usual, unimaginative shit with maybe a chokepoint here or there, but nothing more.

Dragon Age: Origins was oldfashioned like Balder's Gate in all the worst ways, except maybe not setting the player up for unwinnable scenario's. But it had none of the charm that makes these old games so fondly remembered. And that's why, I'd wager, it's not remembered at all, today. It wasn't a bad game in the traditional sense, but I had to look really hard to see any good in it. And in the end, that wasn't enough. I don't know how many hours I put into it, but it were too many.

One last thing: I didn't enjoy the "Morrigan Disapproves" mechanic. It made me feel less like I was playing a character, and more like I was playing the party, which now effectively prohibited playing characters with different ethics together, further limiting me as a player.

tl;dr: Bought DA at full price, was hugely disappointed, don't consider it to be a good game.

It's actually super fun for its integration of top-down and over the shoulder playstyles.

Running around like some kind of action RPG was fun outside of the battles and during the battles switch to the tactical tabletoppish view.

That, combined with your points IMO is why Dragon Age: Origins for PC is a pretty decent game, while Dragon Age: Origins for Xbox 360 is garbage trash and should be set on fire.

My favorite of the old CRPGs was Icewind Dale, so I'm clearly into these games mainly for the combat.
The sequels are just completely unattractive to me. They removed the only part that made the games good. If I wanted to play a game like Dragon Age 2 I'd play a good one like KOTOR.

Now that you mention it, that was legit an interesting way of doing things. But it wasn't enough for me, obviously. Maybe if the combat had actually been proper tactical, but I found it practically impossible to control the battlefield to any degree, with the exception of area of effect spells. But some of those had AoE's that were so huge as to lack any finesse.

Frankly, the combat seemed half-finished. Magic just seemed the most finished of it all. But compared to other games in the genre, or even tabletop D&D, it just wasn't very exciting.

I've been playing Dragon Age Origins, about 15 hours in and only beginning the 1st of 4 recruiting missions. It's been fun, I don't know what all that other bickering was about earlier, but I really like the game.

I thought I'd hate the combat, but yo, this shit is fun. It still looks gay — like a bunch of LARPers swinging their weapons, careful to avoid contact but occasionally getting a dramatic final kill — but I'm so focused on managing my attacks and abilities that I don't even notice.

I especially love the tactics — my dog aggressively charges at the first enemy he sees, knocks him down, does a how that stuns the enemies, then a growl that lower attack and defense, before finally mauling whomever has the lowest health.

Also, Morrigan is a cunt, Leliana is life, I hope I get the opportunity to murder Sten because I hate him so goddamn much.

Well she is Captain Insaneway. Flemeth just needs some coffee to chill.

A lot of people like Morrigan but she's basically a bitch. I mean power to her for owning that shit and not giving a fuck but I like to play as a good guy and she enjoys stealing candy from babies far too much. She's someone I'd respect but stay well the fuck clear of in real life. The truth is that Leliana is a rogue and you take Wynne instead of Morrigan. Not hot VA eye candy but Leliana can do that and Wynne actually has your back and darns your socks. If you're not running around with Sten she looks after your other two big strong dumbass manchild warriors for you. Both special needs Donkey and the Dwarf. The latter of whom was a lot of fun to run around with.

Also fuck sten. His people are pic related as well the second DA game was awful but they were shits in that.

But yes, Morrigan is a bitch. Her shit got old real quick. But I had that experience with almost every NPC, Leliana included. Dragon Age made me shy away from this type of game for years, until I picked up The Witcher 3.

Also, Morrigan is a bitch because she has literally zero social skills in DA: O. She can't go out in her human form because she knows she'd be subjugated by the Templars, being a witch and all. She said she changed into animals to watch humans because of this. So the Grey Warden is kind of the only one who happens to you know, not treat her different because she's a witch when first meeting her. The rest come around to her.

I don't know. I liked her more than Liliana in the game. She was just boring. I guess she's an acquired taste?

I like my women not to be bitches. Morrigan spent a lot of time being mean to people who didn't do anything to prompt it and I loathe party members who I have to keep an eye to stop them stealing candy from babies at any opportunity.

Leliana was also boring though. I didn't romance anyone in dragon age origins as a result. Most of the time the woman of my group was the only one I would trust to watch my back and darn my socks as well as keep the special needs donkey/the dumbest warden out of trouble.

I can believe that, it seems very polished now. But isn't it always the case with early-access games like this (Rust, Conan Exiles) that the player numbers are at their highest when the game is still in a shit state? Then the development takes some time to get it right and most people forget about it and move on to the next title.

Finally completed the main game of Talos Principle; all stars, all sigils, all endings, all messengers, etc. Good game except for the last two stages in Hub C. They felt just tacked on and relied more on precise placements and waiting during the recording rather than logic. It feels like the developers even gave up with the 3 stars just crammed in easy to find spots on stage C-6. It just started getting very tedious at the end and probably would've been better to stop early or space out the remaining puzzles.

The true ending is pretty anticlimactic, too. I would've rather had it switched with the other ending in the game as a nice punctuation on the whole game.

Either way, it's still a good game despite some design hiccups. I'll play the DLC soon.

Been playing Spider-Man 2 to get hype for Spider-Man PS4. Played the Gamecube version. It's not quite the Xbox version, but still better than PS2. This game doesn't hold up amazingly well, it's aged pretty poorly, but what saves it is the control. That still holds up perfectly. Spidey has never controlled better than he did in this game.

I know there are people out there that like Ultimate Spider-Man more and argue that it's a better game I used to be one of them[/i], and in terms of mission design, story, and presentation it likely is. But going back to Spider-Man 2 now has made me realize just how much more control you have than you do in Ultimate. The sprint modifier makes everything feel so good, and you definitely have more web swinging options. Just swinging around feels so good and it's never felt better than it did here. Too bad the rest of the game surrounding this control isn't exactly incredible, and that the character models are largely dogshit, but moving in this game just feels amazing.

Like, I'm looking forward to Spider-Man PS4 and all, but as far as a dream Spider-Man game goes, just give me a ground up HD remake of Spider-Man 2 with the physics as close as they can possibly get to the original game with reworked and expanded mission design. Then add on top of it an expanded story with more villains, more boss fights, more variation in side missions, and unlockable costumes. Hell, I don't even care if the story and missions are completely different and have nothing to do with the movie. Just give me that amazing control and something that feels close in atmosphere. As long as story presentation isn't as fucking laughable as Web of Shadows or Spider-Man 3, or as disjointed and lazy as TASM2, then it'll be just fine.

It's weird being a fan of Spider-Man video games. I love these games, but I still don't think we've got the perfect Spidey game except Spider-Man on 2600, that's the one and I'm kind of doubtful we'll get that with Spider-Man PS4 either. But there are so many good ideas and mechanics spread out across all of these games that you can pick out from all the shit and make something truly great out of. It's crazy to me that we still don't have a Spider-Man game that controls anywhere near as well as a game that released in 2004.

Playing a pyro playthrough of Dark Souls 3.

I've never not done the hollow storyline.

I was so sad when I came upon Anri's corpse on the altar last playthrough that I immediately killed the assassin the the Church of Yorshka.
What does this action change?
Does she still die in the same spot or does she continue further in her quest?

played few hours of hollow knight and was fun but few things that are really ruining it for me:

>lose all coins on death and checkpoints are so far away
literally would've quit after stumbling into a boss and losing 500 gold if i didnt find cheats for the game. idk who the fuck thought it was a good idea to lock you in with bosses randomly AND make you lose all money on death

on top of that the checkpoints are soo fucking far i have to walk like 10 min to get back to where i was. it's not hard or challenging to do it just so tedious and when the map is already super confusing (before i bought everything with cheats) you're already walking back and forth 15 times going "can i go there yet? nope walk the other way"

>i've still gotten barely any upgrades
for real by a few hours in id expect to be decently powerful by now but nope literally exact same since beginning except i have one ranged weapon now.

idk the atmosphere and actual boss fights (when they're good) are interesting enough i'll keep playing but the constant running back and forth is so god damn dumb

still i've been playing like 30 min and at least 20 of those have been running back and forth across the map, i heard this game is metroid like or some shit, is that what people find fun about those games? how you have to run back and forth back and forth once you get new powers trying to figure out where tf to go?

Completed Sublevel Zero yesterday, the final boss was a real hassle, plunking away at a healthbar I can't see while circle strafing and dodging spiraling lasers and permanent homing bullets that evade terrain and half a dozen invincible turrets while at 3 hitpoints remaining (and having the boss death not clear the homing bullets so I had to beeline for the exit)
Now back to Drifting Lands, it has more customization that I thought at first but you're really reliant on unique loot that gives additional effects. Once you get a unique you usually don't swap it out until you get a better unique.
It would have been nice if there was just more variance on normal gear, I'd like to play a game that gives you equipment that skews stats 50% or more in either direction.

Picked up Dying Light via the Steam sale and it's probably the most frustrating game I've played in a long while. On the surface it's a lot of fun and has a lot going for it. I quite enjoy playing it for the most part. But then the little hiccups creep in and manage to pile up until I have to ragequit before I break another mouse by slamming it into the nearest hard surface.

For one the stupid parkour gimmick is poorly designed and can frequently cause your character to vault off of things to death, drop down into hordes of zombies because you didn't hold the button juuuust right, and often fail entirely if your reticule isn't exactly precisely dead center aimed at the object you're trying to climb. And never mind when you climb automatically when you're not trying to. On top of that they absolutely love to put quest objectives in places you can't reach unless you leap with pixel perfect accuracy, leading to climbing something, leaping to the objective, missing, climbing again, repeat until the stars align and the Luck Goddess smiles in your favor. Parkour doesn't work in first person games and it doesn't even add anything to this one except as an excuse to avoid playing the game by staying out of reach of any danger.

Like with all games that have breakable weapons, everything you can wield has been transported to the game world from some sort of tissue paper universe where all things are floppy and useless. A goddamn solid steel wrench will shatter into glass after a couple swings at a mushy zombie head.

And the most frustrating of all is that right out of the damn gate the game throws you into situations you're woefully unprepared to deal with. One of the very first missions involves you having to kill five bandits, who all hit harder than you, have infinite ammo, and outnumber you obviously. And at this point you won't have leveled up enough to stand a chance and will be equipped with at best a wrench and a couple wooden table legs which can't even do enough damage to kill all these men before they break and become useless.

Also it throws you into the night for the first time absolutely surrounded by the uberzombies with no warning and no way in hell to fight back. You can try to run, but they're faster than you, and you can't kill them at this point. So your only recourse is to let them kill you so you can respawn in a safe house so you can sneak away. Whatever dev decided that was a good idea needs to be fired and barred from working in video games ever again.

I want to keep enjoying this game. But its constant questionable design decisions and stupid controls make it really difficult to.

I enjoyed the other 3 games but I'm worried about the overusage of the batmobile in this one. The gameplay of the car doesn't seem particularly thrilling in the long run.

Also not sure if the included DLC is worth it, they've been pretty lackluster for the previous games.

>Is it worth dropping 38 on it for the goty edition?

$38? No. Are you playing on console? Because there is a PC sale going on, you know. If so, there's always gonna be a good price drop for the premium edition on PSN/XBL. I'm talking about ten or fifteen bucks.

>I enjoyed the other 3 games but I'm worried about the overusage of the batmobile in this one.

I dunno, man. The batmobile doesn't bother me, personally. If you enjoyed the other three games, there's no reason not to play Arkham Knight even if there are some things about it that aren't appealing. You get what I'm saying?

>Also not sure if the included DLC is worth it, they've been pretty lackluster for the previous games.

As long as DLC comes in a bundle, I couldn't care less. It shouldn't matter. You're getting the full experience as opposed to getting an unfinished product on launch.

I was the guy who posted about getting it on psn the other day. I remember I also torrented it back when it first came out on my (now deceased RIP) desktop, and remember the parkour and controls in general being pretty bad with KB+M, and were definitely better once I plugged in a ps4 controller and used that.

As for that first group of bandits, I used molotovs, took most of them out with just 2 on hard.

I like what I've played of Arkham Knight. I even liked the Batmobile stuff, it feels really good to drive and the combat inside of it feels good too. I know people complain about it a lot but personally I think it's the Batmobile done right in a game. It's done well, albeit a bit overused.

That said I still haven't finished Arkham Knight. The stories in Asylum, City, and Origins weren't necessarily anything all too special, I think they're serviceable but I have my problems with them. But still, perfectly serviceable and perfectly enjoyable. But Knight's story really failed to grab me in any way. You can see the plot points coming from a mile away and I've yet to see anything all too interesting, outside of the Manbat stuff. I'll finish it someday though, I have no reason not to.

I really liked Knight. The franchise peaked at Asylum for me, but it's still a great game that's totally worth playing. I didn't even have a huge problem with the Batmobile besides the tedious tank combat sections. I liked the way it was used in puzzles and Riddler challenges. The DLC was all hot garbage, and I would be insulted if I bought the season pass at launch, but since I picked up the whole collection for like $8 I wasn't to tore up about it.

Arkham Knight's season pass is probably one of the worst ones I've seen from a distance. It was the reason why I didn't buy it until now. I kept reading from other reviews about how each DLC lasted a half hour. But it's like you said, as long as I have the bundle, it's really no big deal.

Some of that $4 Shadow of Mordor. Very repetitive, not super original, movement feels clunky (although I'm sort of getting used to some of it), and I don't hate Tolkien but the story and moment-to-moment writing is dull as a rock. But I'm having a pretty good time. Orc guerilla warfare is scratching some kinda itch, and the nemesis system adds just enough of a personal touch to keep me coming back, even if all the orcs sound exactly the same because cockney or whatever the hell is the only accent that existed in olden times

I meant more that there are still things I find interesting or enjoyable about the general setting and backstory (despite not being a huge fan), but that's a good point. It's like one of those 2 hour battle sequences in the movies without any of the camaraderie and wonderment and lighthearted adventure etc in between. Mind controlling orc captains and helping them work their way up the chain of command to eventually betray a warchief is pretty cool, though.

Long story short, a couple dudes from a high ranking team decided to drop in on my team to 'tank up my team on the leader boards', well when they came in, I had to drop other people whom I mistook as longtime inactive players just to gave the people I removed get on the game and wonder why they weren't on my team. At the same time, the dudes from the high rank team kept team-jumping back and forth, which annoyed me because I dropped decent folk for their indecicive asses. I also lost a regular teammate who is actually fun to play with because they had history with one of the two high rank dudes and didn't want to play with them. Another dude on my team was getting uncomfortable with the how the main high ranker dude was being WAY TOO ENCOURAGING that my teammate continue using niche 1hit kill weapons that the regular teammate didn't nessecarilly care for. Beyond that, I just didn't want any more of my teammates becoming uncomfortable or leaving to go isolate themselves so I discreetly kicked the two team jumping high-rankers and told the main one that I'd rather have more teams to fight against in this dwindling community than have my team have it's rank contrived to max level for no reason (which rewards you with nothing, the leaderboards are a joke anyway, #1 and #3 on the leaderboards is literally one dude with two PS3s fighting themself to artificially keep their team on the top).

Also the high ranker dudes were carrying my team so hard that playing with them sucked the challenge out of the game and made my participation feel redundant when fighting other teams. There was a point in which I was considering just handing leadership rights of my team over to one of the normies on my team and go make a new one on my own just so I could have fun again actually having to try to beat other teams like normal without being effortlessly overpowered.

So after giving it some thought I decided to put my foot down and keep my own team and rid myself of the tryhards who belonged on their own team.

Well after that the main high-ranker turned MASSIVELY SALTY and started texting me stuff bordering on harassment. All because I wanted to retain my old team composition for the sake of enjoying the process of playing instead of only focusing on winning every time.

Playing Dishonored. The game is really generic and as soon as you walk off the boat its easy to figure out whats going to happen. I still find it fun though, not really sure why. The game hasn't offered anything new to me and it honestly feels like im really OP as fuck, just the idea of an assassin teleporting short distances is ridiculous but i think thats part of the appeal of this game. It sure as hell aint the story.

Finally got a vpn so I got a few games yesterday that I felt like I missed over the last decade or so.

I got Mass Effect 2 (which is really fun so far) and Bioshock. I haven't gotten very far into Mass Effect 2 but the story is really cool, and the action is pretty fun so far. Also, now I finally know who this guy (pic related) is after seeing him on this board like a million times.

Are there any other gems from around that time period that I may have missed?

I was gonna get some newer games but sadly I don't have the room on my hard drive.

KOTR is minimum 1K damage x 13. So you're guarenteed at least 13K damage going out against single target, and if it does 9999 each time, 9999 x 13 that's at least 130K damage going out. It's not necessary to win the game, but it does prevent a long final boss (it's honestly more fun that way, what fun is casting KOTR 2 time and you win?)

people definitely don't play dishonored for the story, its shit and even extreme fans can probably admit that.
Its more about the atmosphere, the powers, the way you can attack each situation with stealth or full on PVE or a mix of both. Those are the reasons I liked it anyways
I did a no kill no detection run not too long ago and it was really fun, especially since in my other playthroughs I massacred everything I came into contact with

Just posting to let you know that you're totally wrong about Dishonored and Dishonored 2, they're both fantastic games with systems that interact in complex ways. They are the best Deus Ex style games since the original (unless Prey is actually incredible).

I admit the story isn't anything special, but the world building and atmosphere is great. And honestly, if story is so important to you you're probably better of watching films rather than playing video games, or just sticking to interactive stories like Life is Strange and Telltale games.

Not everyone wants the same thing as you from a game. For me, the ability to be sneaking around on rooftops, realise that this bitch guard is about to push this other woman off, then link their fates together with magic so that the moment the pushed woman hits the ground, the killer dies herself too.

Or being able to pull enemies mid combat across the room towards you, sticking a mine to them in mid air then letting them fly into an enemy behind.

Dishonored is a bunch of sandbox levels and it gives you so many ways to complete it - not just in terms of slow and sneaky or assault style, killing vs knockouts, but also in which powers you upgrade, which character you're playing as from the start, different routes, different ways of taking out key targets.... there's a mission you can complete by sitting down and doing a logic puzzle rather than playing it, and at least a couple of very unique and interesting levels (thinking clockwork mansion and Aramis' manor).

To say a game is bad because the plot isn't great is nonsense, as in many games plot is just something to string together gameplay sequences. And when the gameplay feels as good as Dishonored (admittedly it takes a few hours to find the flow, but that only makes it more rewarding)

sometimes when people talk about dishonored this way I wonder if we played the same game. Both of them just felt like bioshock with some expanded stealth elements. Even the visual style is basically bioshock in victorian engerland.

Not to say Bioshock is a bad game and I can see how people would enjoy that sort of thing , but it did feel like it had all been done before. It just didn't give me any real motivation to keep playing. It's like the developers never left 2009.

I let it sit in my steam library for 3 years but I finally got around ot playing The Banner Saga and fuck is it good. Imagine if Oregon Trail and Norse-like mythology had a baby and then broke up the diplomacy and bad news with old school grid-based RPG combat, and you have The Banner Saga.

I played Another World (20th Anniversary Edition on PC) at the recommendation of >>702262 and enjoyed it. There are a couple sections of the game where you can fuck yourself over by doing stuff out of the intended sequence, but luckily you don't create new checkpoints unless you do everything you need to do at the time you need to do it, so it becomes clear you need to try going a different way first. Despite (because of?) his pretty simple characterization, the friendly alien in this game is now one of my favorite NPCs in gaming. I would recommend Another World to anyone that doesn't mind a platformer that requires patience and dying a hundred times.

I also played some PlayStation 1 games that I didn't really feel like posting about by themselves because I didn't have much to say:
MediEvil - I can't remember ever being this perfectly neutral about a game before. There's nothing I can identify about it that I didn't like, but I also didn't think it was particularly engaging either.

Elite: Dangerous

Been posted to some backwater military outpost. Been there a few days, taking part in the war between an Imperial faction and an invading independent faction. I serve the Empire, and fight on behalf of Princess Aisling Duval. My ship serves a Destroyer role, being light and fast enough to engage small, nimble fighters and interceptors while carrying enough sheer firepower to be a massive threat to the larger warships and even Capital ships if I'm careful.

Pic related, my ship, a Fer-De-Lance designated INV Lux Imperium. All of the modules have been engineered with experimental technology geared towards combat. It's faster than most, strongly shielded and armored, as nimble as a fighter, and packing some of the heaviest weaponry available to players.

The game itself is "alright" You really need to craft your own story though. Although the next major update the devs have said will contail quality of life improvements as well as adding depth to already existing mechanics, instead of just introducing new mechanics without much to them, so I'm looking forward to that. Also aliens have been confirmed and contact has been made, in a way. Which has the Federation, Alliance, and Empire on edge.

Theg ame is available on PC, Xbone, and PS4. with the PC and PS4 versions fully supporting VR and HOTAS control systems. HOTAS is coming for Xbox one sometime this year, and VR support will follow once micro$haft stops sitting on dicks long enough to develop it.

Got a PS4 from my brother, and a friend insisted I get bloodborne despite not being able to get into the souls games. And I'm digging it, stunning guys with the gun is intuitive. I don't have to be scared of breaking a weapon by enchanting it. There's no classes for them to royally fuck up.

My only complaint is that I've only fought 2 hunters so far, one I knocked off a tower almost instantly and the other got stuck in a doorway where he didn't attacked but let me hit him. If there's more out there I expect them to thoroughly fuck me up cause I got I basically cheesed the first two, unless all hunters have a work around/are a buggy mess.

In fact I think I might of over leveled (kept repeating the starting area and old town looking for alternative paths), or maybe I just went out of order, but I've killed several bosses in my first try and in the newest area at most the little grunts take 3 quick hits, usually just 2.

Been trying to play Legend of Grimrock 2 since I liked the first one so much and I figured it would be equally easy to run. I was wrong. It lags like crazy when you're outdoors even though it looks like a game from 2008. It's really cpu intensive but I can't tell what the hell is even using that. water and trees seem to really piss the game off. when you're in a dungeon it's absolutely perfect, but there's so much outdoor gameplay that I've gotten pretty discouraged. none of the settings you can lower help the lag issues except rendering quality, and the only other setting besides max rendering quality looks like garbage and ruins the atmosphere.

this especially sucks right after I got screwed out of Psychonauts at nearly the end of the game. Good lord that game was ported badly. Both of these games are great too which is even worse. Psychonauts glitched out to an unsalvageable level at what seemed like it would be the best area so far (napoleon) and Grimrock 2 seemed to be everything I wanted out of a Grimrock sequel, outside of the movement speed being weirdly slower.

The whole making your own story thing is kinda bullshit. it's just some thing you can autistically think about while you are flying from place to place. The game just suffers from being stuck in your ship/car. Making up your story is just a replacement for some slight quality of life immersion. I just want my space legs. Would really open up mission type with possible walking on planets and stations. I think actions on a station or planet base should be as important as game play in the ship. In fact it would be cool if entire missions can be obtained on foot and completed in the same station as if you are closely interacting with that community.

The "make your own story" argument is used 90% of the time for creatively bankrupt games. Because the ones where you do so naturally don't need to tell you this.

The vast majority of sandbox games suffer from samesy-syndrome. You're doing the same shit, in the same way, with the same mechanics, over and over again. As such, there can never be a real feeling of progression, and thus that you're part of a larger story overall. It's not stimulating.

For me, the "make your own story" thing has only ever worked in open world games that have a clear setting and a story behind it. Because that means different parts of the world affect you differently, whether it's because certain items are uncommon, or because the people there are culturally distinct in a way that actually impacts the fucking gameplay.

When I played Morrowind, I "made my own story" by going on a pilgrimage of sorts to one of my favorite regions. On foot, because I wanted to enjoy the scenery. When I played Escape Velocity: Nova, which is much closer to a spacegame like Elite, I never actually consciously made the decision because the gameplay itself does it for you. It plays differently when you're a two-bit merc in a rickety ship than when you're the scion of the most advanced people in the universe.

Making your own story is essentially improvisation. And anyone who has ever played P&P games, written a story, or even held a few presentations will tell you that you can only do proper improv when you've got a solid framework. And most sandbox games lack it completely. They're a bunch of random shit thrown together without thought. And even a bunch of kids playing in a sandbox are going to get bored pretty soon if you just toss them in there and tell them to imagine their own shovels and buckets.

If you have 2 mimics, have your 2 other party members mimic a w-summon nights of the round and youll cast it 6 times before emerald weapon can act. It's the strategy I used when I was a dumb kid but I also had all the master materias except summon and my characters at a minimum level of 95. There's probably a lot better strategies out there and I can't remember how I beat Ruby weapon but if you set your shit up right you should be good.

That being said cities skylines can be incredibly complex if you want it to be, you can do anything and everything in cities skylines, if you want to click on a citizen and follow them around for their day you can do so, watch them walking along your roads or footpaths, hop on a bus or a train or whatever, watch them call a cab and wait for them, you can rename individual streets, you can have one area where the taxes are really high and another where the taxes are really low, you can set some areas to have recreational drugs and others to have harsh prison scentences.

It can be very sandboxy if you enable the unlimited unlock everything mods which come with the game, but if you play without them it can be very difficult to stay afloat until you know what you're doing, i got one of my unmodded cities up to 160k people, with around a 300k surplus then my citizens decide to educate themselves, which means they stopped wanting to work in industrial areas which were my backbone economically, industry was calling out for workers i seen my surplus turn into deficit so quickly i was defunding schools and bulldozering universities like it was no tomorrow but the damage was already done and i eventually went bankrupt.

You cannot get complacent with cities skylines there are so many variables that in any moment someone somewhere is doing something which is going to destroy your city, there is always something to do.

As you can see i can get a little too into it....

McDonalds are going bankrupt because they can't hire enough workers at minimum wage.
Lets bus in workers from low-income areas, ban unions, and cut education funding, instead of expanding the industries that provide higher wages that are starting to out-compete with those McDonalds.

I've caused famines in Tropico because educated people refuse to work in non-hydroponic farms, but in Skylines, you can just rezone your decimated industry to commercial and the like.

Just finished the Sniper Elite 4 campaign. Despite the often clueless AI I had a lot of fun with it, mainly because of the big, fairly open 1-2 hour-long levels. Having to plan your approach and then improvising when you fuck it up is always a good time. I'll probably come back and replay it on the highest difficulty (hard was a little too easy and I say that as someone who is by no means great at shooters) or check out the DLC missions later. Still, glad I got it on sale. $60 for a ~20 hour replayable campaign isn't the worst, but my wallet has standards

hahaha yeah bus them all in give me your tired and your hungry! no hate! no fear! refugees are welcome here! etc. that'd be cool if you could get left wing protest groups to show up, shouldve put them in the natural disasters dlc along with anti vax lobby groups, man they could do so many things, anti-fa run around bombing your city because #oppression

>you can just rezone your decimated industry to commercial and the like

If there is demand for it and even then it puts a massive strain on cargo hubs/train terminals and highways if you import too many goods for too much commercial zone and because it was industry it devalues the land because of pollution so some businesses dont like to build on low value land.

The correct move for that situation as i know now would be to build offices instead of industry once they begin to get smarter and set some areas to "schools out" so they skip school and just work in the industry that is there.

ive heard loads of cool things about tropico i should try it out some time. whenever i talk about cities people always recommend tropico.

The correct move is to expand the things that educated workers are needed for, (offices, a bit of high-level industry, and commercial), instead of creating more low-level workers because the things the low-level workers are needed for (farms, low-level industry) aren't getting enough workers.
Industry withering is not a problem if the reason it's withering is because there's a better use for the workers it was employing.

You'd think I was joking, but in my area, since they've implemented e-verify businesses are complaining that they can't bus in enough near-minimum-wage workers from low-income areas, H2Bs, and want the local government to build/subsidize low-income, high-density, multi-family housing units (projects).
You know, instead of offering higher-wages and competing for the best labor, they want the government to supply them with more poor fuckers who can't work elsewhere.

Yes there is. High-skill workers will move on to greener pastures if they appear, or will just be far more discontent with their station. Lower-educated workers will not.

Those greener pastures generate greater tax revenue and are less taxing on fire/police services/generate less pollution than the ones they left.
But also if those pastures don't exist, they'll work in low-skill positions just fine.

Just scored an early victory over the allies, just as planned. Paradox really needs to fix the AI when it comes to coastal defense. By the time the British forces got home from the colonies to defend the country it was basically too late for them.

It's almost 1941 and the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact will stay in effect for over a year still. Until that final showdown with the commies, what should I do? I could sweep up the rest of Europe into my puppet-swarm or something but we'll see. Also wonder what the US is gonna do now.

I usually never bother going into classic windows mode because aero is inexplicably tied to windows' vysnc, but that doesn't matter when playing a game since they always have their own vysnc. just gotta switch aero back on for web browsing and videos and shit.

Yeah, it's kind of bad. British dominion's autonomy was determined by initial game-play, but they didn't really think of how it'll play if Britain falls.

I mean it makes sense that puppet governments of the nation you've conquered bend the knee, but the axis's conquest of Britain shouldn't have any leverage over cases with high autonomy such as Egypt, British Raj, and Canada.
If anything, they ought to become independent, it's silly to imagine India bending the knee to germany if Britain was conquered.

Pic unrelated. Since Chinese heavy AA is OP AF in MP because heavy AA has the lowest armor per production at that year and which unit/supplies are destroyed in combat is selected randomly from the total number (meaning 8 heavy armor next to 1000 support or inf are going to take damage 8/1008 times) so SPAA (which uses half the units per brigade) + lots of other stuff to absorb damage must be OP as fuck right?

nope. 1 SPAA in a 40 width divisions takes a lot of damage even if you get them fully upgraded in pre-41 and nothing can pen them and you've reliability >100 so 0 attrition.
SPAA seems to get knocked out more than you'd expect with HAA having double the units per brig thus half the chance of getting hit.

Also, asia has fuckall for iron.

Thats... random. First of all, by WW2, Canada, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand were independent, and I'm fairly sure all had control of their own foreign affairs. India was still British rule, but I beleve the last fucking thing they'd do is just shrug and accept Germany as their new masters because they happen to be in London right now.


Also, out of any Commonwealth nation at the time, you think South Africa would be all over that...

Yeah well, colonial possessions are handled weirdly in HoI4, with different types of levels to represent levels of autonomy/independence. Depending on how the AI of the Commonwealth nations plays they will be at different levels once GB is occupied, which I assume is why some of them becomes independent and some can be puppeted. Also the peace-conference mechanic is really obtuse in itself.

so far it's been "walking around in the dark like an asshole looking for next area" simulator with some breaks to kill zombies/nazi soldiers

like yeah the atmosphere is good (when it's not too fuckin dark) and the intro scene was good but jesus hasn't been any interesting or hard parts, just keep walking forward and shoot the random guys you run into. i just met the friend bill and took a break as he told me that i need to walk across the entire map (go figure) to get some shit at which point I'm sure at the very last moment when we're almost ready i'll get attacked by a swarm of bad guys (again)

Grounded mode is for people that enjoy survival and stealth based gameplay. According the devs, this mode is the way this game is intended to be played. If you don't like raising the difficulty on games, that's totally fine. I know a few people who are like that. When I read your initial post, I was under the impression that you didn't like the pacing and the difficulty.

Its just a interactive movie. If you want engaging gameplay, you're playing the wrong game.

After moving my fourth Ladder i just quit the game and never looked back. Its not even in my backlog since i don't even like the actress who played the girl. I mean, it all started downhill from the get go. They tried so hard to make me feel something for the guy and his daughter and i dont even know anything about them. It was like, yeah she died the gobermint killed her but you cant expect me to feel something so early in the game, you gotta let me immerse myself with some gameplay first or at least get to know the character thats dying you dicks. I probably would've cared if i got to know the characters more a little further in the game but that gameplay is so boring i just couldn't stand it. Its a game for fucking normies

i've only posted about dark souls like once on here so not me

i only mentioned it because personally I played it for maybe 2 hours and very quickly realized that out of 100 hours you'll spend 50+ hours in shield which does not sound fun at all to me. i don't think forcing the player to sit and wait in shield to counter attack is entertaining especially not when you die quickly and have to run all the way back to your corpse every time (oops you died again? guess you lose all your money)

i guess i can understand that someone might really enjoy that super slow methodical gameplay (actually i cant but so many of you claim to you can't all be fucking with me) but personally i have like 4 hours after work to play vidya, i dont want to spend 2.5 of em sitting in shield and running back to my body

That's fair enough, but after you learn how enemies telegraph their moves and how to counter/dodge and parry you don't really spend that much time shielding.
It's more the learning curve. You start off super weak, but once you get into the element of the class you're playing it gets smoother.

Once you git gud you don't need a shield.

You just didn't figure out the game mechanics.

It's fine by me though, no disrespect; not everyone wants to spend their time on a steep learning curve. But there's many more tools than a shield guards:

timing
spacing
dodging
parrying
poise
hyperarmor

And probably other stuff I didn't mention. The cool thing about the souls series isn't that it's hard, it's about overcoming adversity, and there are many many ways to skin that cat.

But there is a learning curve. Easiest way to learn is to summon phantoms and learn from more seasoned gamers. It makes your playthrough easier, more sociable, and more interesting when you encounter the pvp aspect of it.

But yeah, it's not everyones cup of tea, as evidenced by regenerating shields, aim assist/auto aim, auto saves, and general hand-holding.

I guess souls enthusiasts want a challenging environment to adapt to.

Finally got around to playing the original Devil May Cry on PS2. I bought the HD Collection, but from what I've seen on Youtube the game looks way brighter and the colors seem washed out, so I'm glad I got a copy of the original as well. The atmosphere is perfect.

But holy fuck is this game hard. Even on normal I'd say it's on par with Ninja Gaiden Black on hard mode. I find myself beating bosses using tons of items, creating an outlier save for insurance, then redoing the mission over and over until I get a boss kill I'm happy with.

Dante is such a great protagonist too, now I get why people were so upset at his redesign in the 2013 reboot. New Dante just seems like an asshole.

I've heard that DMC 2 is a low point in the series, can anyone tell me whether I should skip it altogether, or just slog through it for the story?

Recently finished Disgaea 5's "tutorial" the ending was good feels. I'm glad I picked Disgaea up on the Switch instead of ARMS even though T-RPGS never interest me, finally found one game in the genre that does now.

Also the Armored Knight has easily become one of my favorite classes along with her Galahad's Shield skill, it does what I wish more games would do which is make defense into an actual attack. Now I'm going to max her out soon and think of what kind of interest setups I can do to maximize her tanking.

I liked DMC2. Its not for everyone, the gameplay was a lot slower but i thought it had a lot of style to it. Its gloomy, dark, and Dante has grown out of his "extreme" attitude and more focused which i liked and seemed appropriate. The story isnt great, but i liked the main characters. A lot of people hate it but i thought it was the right step for the series. I say give it a shot. If you don't like the first 30 minutes then move on the third.

The Armored Knight is best played along the swordmaster and the ninja. Those roles barely have any defense and as long as you Armored Knight doesn't die on you from taking all that damage, you can dish out some ludicrous amount of damage. Dont Ignore the Maid, shes an unstoppable force with the wide variety of items that exist in the game. If you level her up, she becomes indispensable especially in the third Poison beach planet.
Disgea 5 is pretty fun and require less grind. But if you ever feel that it does, there is a method of reaching high level really fast by abusing one of the level one of the optional levels. there also other methods. It did suck out some of the fun of playing the story line since i never used the main characters but i felt with all the options Disgaea 5 in increasing EXP and replaying levels, you might as well take advantage of it.

by "sit in shield" what i meant was "defensive play," i dont want to play a game where you just run around like a pussy the whole time sneaking in hits where you can, i wanna play the game at my pace

>no disrespect
>..... and general hand-holding
this is the issue i have with yall dark soul heads you guys act like anything that isn't incredibly frustrating and difficult means it's "hand holding." like somehow using a quick save next to a difficult part so you don't need to run across the same portion of the map fifty fuckin times makes you less skilled. why use any saves at all? why not have the start the game over on death like in SMB?

>souls enthusiasts want a challenging environment to adapt to
yeah like there aren't a hundred games that provide challenging environments without restricting the player. doom, mirror's edge, superhot get real challenging but they still allow varied, aggressive playstyles rather than pussyfooting the whole thing

maybe i'm wrong but from what i played there wasn't any point that seemed like you turn bad ass, just super slow, super patient gameplay.

You can play a souls game aggressively, but when you get hit, it hurts.

That's the deal for me; I don't feel challenged unless my enemies can actually hurt me. I hate smashing trash mobs that do 1% to my health bar or do damage that's ultimately negligible cause my guy is apparently wolverine and heals in a few seconds. There's no sport in that. And on most games, if you increase the difficulty, all that happens is their health bar goes up and they can get shot in the head 5 more times. That's not harder, that's just tedious.

I dunno, I guess it's just personal taste.

My favorite games aside from the souls series was Morrowind, the Dead Space series (on hard), and the Thief series.

Actually the Uncharted series too, but yeah, Nathan Drake is basically wolverine.

Side note, but when I talk about auto-aim hand holding, this is exactly what I'm referencing. You can set up aiming in Uncharted 4 in a way that Nathan can 360 noscope everyone around him. Why even bother playing a shooting game if you're not gonna aim?

Stop comparing DarkSouls to uncharted. That game is all about the cinematic scenes, story telling and the visual experience and it has DS games beaten in every aspect. It was never meant to be enjoyed in that way. You want a challenge, why not play Neir:Automata on the highest difficulty? That game will challenge you reflexes and your dedication in mastering 2b's skills, not just test how well you can memorize an an enemy's attack pattern and pressing R1 accordingly.
Dark Souls games arnt fucking hard, not even in the slightest. Its a game that likes to punish you in your first encounter with an enemy but gets easier aa soon you're able to predict their next action which doesnt take longer than 15 seconds. Your level influences just how many hits you can take before you die so the higher level you are the more likely you can take on their hits and remember their attack patterns before they kill you. Thats it, thats really all there is to Dark Souls games. It was fun in Demon Souls but the gameplay has been rinsed and repeated in ever installment with almost identical levels present in each one. The call of duty of action rpg. Im glad Dark Souls is officially dead.

Lol

FInally worked up the will to finish Irithyll Dungeon, headed to the Dancer now. I'm expecting her to be a breeze compared to my other builds, as this pyro build seems to be pretty perfect.

It's funny because it's not even a glass cannon, it's a pretty well b alanced build, but the itemization is perfect. Sage Ring, Witch Ring, Great Swamp Ring plus 20 faith 20 int makes me hit really strong, though I'll have to start leveling up faith and int again soon. But those rings have allowed me to be well rounded by putting points in vigor and endurance. This seems to be a pretty perfect build.

Didn't read the rest of your post yet, but I was saying the Uncharted series is one of my all time favorites. I wasn't comparing it to Dark Souls, although I was making fun of the auto-aim function.

If you play Uncharted on hard, it becomes legitimately more difficult, especially the 4th one. Can't tell you how many times I got pinned down hanging onto the side of a cliff.

Literally some of the best semi-open world level design and most varied and distinct combat mechanics in a game.

Yeah you're right it's pretty shit. Just like how Ghouls'n'Ghosts was shit and everyone thought so because reasons.
How very Call of Duty of it to not completely reimagine combat mechanics based on actual weapon fighting every year.

In comparing Dark souls to Uncharted you're comparing an interactive fiction to a bona-fide crucible steel OG video game which echoes the legacy of the old masters like Ghouls'n'Ghosts as well as much more importantly, making skyrim's combat and RPG systems look like SHIIIIIIIT.

Playing RDR. This is probably Rockstar's best game, tbh. I'm worried about the sequel tho because GTA5 was such a downgrade, a casualization. There are things I hope they bring forward tho, like the amount of character customization; in RDR I've got all this money and nothing to spend it on.

This is the type of game I like to play realistically tho. No running around like an anime character, no speeding around on my horse, no fast travel. I take it slow, walk around, take in this world which is full of small details. It's fun.

I played Crash Bandicoot: Warped for PS1 because I liked the first and second games. I liked those games because I enjoyed running and jumping and spinning through boxes. In the levels where you can do those things, Warped is just as fun as the previous two. Unfortunately, platforming levels only make up about half of the game and the rest are vehicle levels. Additionally, I didn't really care for the introduction of time trials, but that's more my own personal preference. Luckily, there was no real reason to force myself to do them because the only thing they unlock is more vehicle levels. I'd better go check out Crash Team Racing, it might be mostly platforming levels!

I recently did RDR and it really, really let me down from what I remembered it as being. Marston is such a fucking tool and so god damn stupid. I felt like I was watching the Walking Dead and whole sections of the game were written around a completely retarded premise.

Like why the fuck would Marston just walk up to Fort Mercer and try and whip his pistol out on 3 men holding rifles right at his head? Wtf? Why would Dumbfuck Marston stay at his ranch after killing Dutch? Why not flee into Mexico where he had it made? Ugh, the whole story of that shit just enraged me endlessly because it is so poorly written.

Usually it is good concept, shitty execution. In this case, the game was artistic, well acted, well performed and was highly memorable. Flawless execution but the whole concept was fucking idiotic to the max.

I platinum'd The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for
>S E R I O U S R E P
Here I am, floating through the spider nebulous region in a ridiculous costume because fuck it.

I know people hate this game but I don't think it's that bad. I mean, it's not great. Very far from the best Spidey game, and I wouldn't recommend going for the platinum or anything, but if you like Spider-Man and can deal with some shit that makes this game stink of budget title, then it might be worth a shot.

Also the combat challenges are the best part of the game. The combat system is just Arkham but kind of jank and nowhere near as polished, but the problem with the campaign is you're never fighting more than like 5 guys at a time. Combat challenges fix that and it feels like the only real part of the game where they tried to design unique combat situations with certain stipulations you just never see throughout the campaign. Not much, but it's something.

Overall I'm just a Spider-Man game fanboy though. There are a handful of really good ones out there so while I don't think this one is quite as bad as people have made it out to be, you could still just play Spider-Man 2 or Ultimate Spider-Man instead and have a better time. Some of the 16-bit games are good too. Namely Spider-Man vs Kingpin and Maximum Carnage.

Don't fuck up Spider-Man PS4, Insomniac. It's been too long since we've had an actually great Spider-Man game.

As with the other games in the series this one is insane. And yet it's one of those rare games where you can excuse most of the shit it pulls (crappy graphics, archaic design, etc.) just because it's so fun and over the top.

I cant seem to figure out how to deal with the traffic in the downtown. I am using every mode of public transportation and i even made it free, but not a large number of people seem to use it even though it spans the entire city. Im using a Six lane one direction road across the city as the spine but still it gets so much traffic during rush hour, im starting to have problems with moving around garbage. I think my problem is the way im using the Highway. I guess letting in all the cars coming in the city flood into the main road is the problem but im not sure of how going about fixing it without closing down the downtown area and moving it elsewhere which im sure will present with a different set of problems.

It's totally worth it. True Pacifist is largely the same up until you get to enter the True Lab but you probably missed a lot of shit before that so it's worth it to play it thoroughly, not to mention it's possible to miss some of the triggers for the true ending if you're rushing through. As for a Genocide run, it's actually a pretty fast playthrough but you'll lose a lot of time on two of the bosses. If you thought Final Flowey was an annoying boss, you're in for a world of pain on the Genocide run.

That game blew my fucking mind. I played through all the endings but it kinda spoils it for me when I realized that you literally can't lose unless you're playing the genocide route. Asriel and Flowey are two fights that you can't lose because if you keep coming back the game remembers your progress, whereas that's not the case vs Sans, my favorite fight in the whole game.

Seriously though, make dedicated routes and isolate residential from main avenues. Not every road needs to be interconnected at every point. Take that curvy outcrop in the bottom left, there's no reason those roads need to connect to that main avenue. Tunnels and overpasses are your friend

If you click on the name of the roads and go route it should tell you where the people are going, in most cases its getting gridlocked because thats the only way they can go.
Also it will show you where you might need to give more attention to public transport, busses metro etc. you should also take off some of the traffic lights on some of the smaller roads.
But yeah as the other guy said more roads. Some places are bound to get jammed up aslong as they dont get too jammed up.

Anyways ive annotated your picture with some things you could try out not sure if they will work but its what i'd do.

So Blue line, make a connection there.
cream line, make a on ramp there.
Dark blue line, upgrade to bigger road
Pink line, upgrade to two way road

But yeah when the small road intersects with a bigger road take the traffic lights off and maybe put a stop sign on the little road.

Hope that helps, let us know how you go and what you did.

I followed your advice and it seemed to helped things. I'm not sure what the highway ramp leading into the main downtown road did but eased off some of the tension at the intersection between elm Park and Chester Square. I think my main problem is Chester Square, Its a residential area mostly and only has a one way four lane road so that why the intersection is so fucked. The avenue is looking good. the intersection between Briar Rose and Birch is still fucked even after i upgraded the roads. Belmont Heights might seem ok but that's cause there's nobody there.

I think i just have the wrong idea in designing the city. The initial plan was to gave some space between each intersection, so cars would have more space to travel and cause less traffic. But i seem to have isolated each district from each other and since there's only one or two ways out its causing a lot of traffic . The city is plagued with garbage and Corpses waiting to be picked up. Its a sad sight and i cant look at it anymore.

Since upgrading the roads and cutting it up to pieces will be more work than i care for, il just start a new city. This time il try to focus on making sure Distracts arnt isolated and build a high way that crosses the city but doesn't flood right into the main avenue. il look up some pictures on how to design a decent Metro system cause mine is just retarded. Also i want to build a canal and design a bicycle pathway around it.

or atleast bridge the areas with roads, also remember that high density has more people so its best to have bus stops and metro stations around there in particular rather than low density, low density doesnt necessarily need metro and can do fine with just busses. if you click on the streets name you should get an option to click routes and see where the cars are going and see how you can mitigate the traffic by giving them routes which lead them to where they are going faster.

Here is a screenshot of my main areas traffic.
Congestion was really bad at the star, then i clicked on the route and seen that most of them were waiting to go to the highway, so i created an off ramp and it cleared it up almost entirely, there is still some congestion there but it is a natural high traffic area, the top red area is just high traffic which i cant really do much about as they are mostly goods trucks importing goods to my commercial area. the bottom red area was because i left the traffic lights on so even though it is fairly quiet it appears high traffic because they keep getting stopped at the lights.

The biggest problem im having with my city right now is actually cargo and tourist trains leaving my city and getting congested at the city they are going to which is backing up and clogging up my entire train network, which is why im in the red right now (i think).

Anyways cant wait to see how your new city turns out!

Yeah, so i figured Building a highway that crosses the city would take too much money to do at the start of the game so i found a pretty simply solution. A roundabout that spans on almost all directions would work just as well. Operationave the planet is working really well, and so far i haven't had any problems with Traffic.

I got a pretty good idea of how to design a metro system for the city though im still too early in the game to bother with it. Funny thing is, i never lived in a big metropolis or any city that used a metro so creating a decent one was just beyond me. Funny how my life experience effected my performance in a video game. I also looked up the maps of Toronto Metro station since i also plan to use Streetcars.

I'm also making a lake centered around what i plan to make is the university area. I've taking inspiration from the Rideau Canal in Ottawa and im planning on creating a small lake like the dow's lake at the end of the Canal. Its just too bad water doesn't freeze in this game, even with the Winter DLC. If i could place Gates to limit the water in the lake and let it freeze and watch the population use it to skate around would've been freaking awesome. Hopefully someday they will add it to the game.

You can see on the side a bunch of bicycle Bridges that span the city. It really helped with the traffic and the population seem to be healthier than the previous one. I like to imagine Pokemon Trainers that favor fast Pokemon waiting on the sides to challenge other Trainers passing through.

tl;dr: if you like X-Men, play this game because it's fucking great. Also, the Deadpool game.

Finished X-Men Origins: Wolverine today. And holy shit this game is hype. SO good. I used to think X-Men 2: Clone Wars was the best game based on the X-Men and I probably would have fought you if you disagreed. And it's great and all, but fuck that bullshit, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is where it's at, even if it's just a Wolverine game. If only it didn't perform like ass. Like single digit framerate at points. If any game deserves a remaster, it's this. But we'll never get one because it's tied to such a shit movie that Marvel and Fox want you to forget about. FUCK.

Also, playing through this for the first time made me realize something; despite being handled by a completely different development team, the Deadpool game is a straight up sequel (or at least a spiritual successor) to this game and you can't convince me any differently. I'm completely convinced that High Moon Studios very intentionally took design elements from this game to use in Deadpool. The Sentinel hand puzzle, the upgrade system, the power cores, the healing factor effect is literally the same, pulling yourself up from an impalement, etc. etc. There's so much overlap in both of these games. And you can expect that from 2 characters with similar powers, but it really feels like High Moon went out of their way to tie these games together in some way. Hell, Deadpool even TELLS YOU TO GO PLAY WOLVERINE'S GAME instead in one of the game over screens.

Difference is, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is actually a better game than Deadpool. I always thought Deadpool felt like a lazy effort but after playing this, I never realized just how lazy it really was. Deadpool feels like a half-baked sequel to this. Half as long, half the combat mechanics, half the story, half as good. Hell, Wolverine got unlockable costumes right where Deadpool 100% did not. Still, I can talk shit but both games are worth playing, I really do like them both, even though I have problems with Deadpool. Curious now to see if some developer will develop a game in the future that ties to both of these in this same way, somehow. I'd love to see, like, a full fledged X-Men game that kind of plays like these. And there are a number of X-Men and Marvel characters that still need their own game. Gambit, Nightcrawler, Psylocke, etc. Or hell, Moon Knight, anyone?

Yeah, I'm already thinkin about going through it again on hard mode, loved this game. I don't blame you about Deadpool either, like I said I really do think it's about half as good as Wolverine at best. What bothers me about that game most is its writing. Daniel Way really dropped the ball big time on how he wrote Deadpool in that game. Just this constant meme-spouting asshat with nothing else going on with him. The story basically boils down to
>Hey, look, we're in a video game. Here's some bad jokes.
At least in some of the Daniel Way Deadpool comics he gives him a personality and story beyond that. Generally Way is one of my least favorite Deadpool writers, but he's certainly done better work than this.

POE is definitely the definitive game in the series because the rules are made for a video game but the enhanced edition is a little less janky than the originals.

I love the DOW series (2 was meh outside the Last stand mode which is great) and I played 3 during the open beta and the server was down the whole weekend, so I never got a chance to really dive into it.

Back with it was fairly new, I had all the expansions except Winter Assault. Soulstorm combines pretty much all the factions in a chance to take over a start system, and it's really fun. I remember me and my friends used to do co-op bots on the hardest difficulty and have great battles. I don't have anyone to play with these days though

If you ever pick them up, make sure you get at least the base game, and Dark Crusade so you can play as all the races. Soulstorm by itself gives you a few races to play, but as it's not the full experience.

>Batman: Arkham Knight
>37 hours

I don't have it in me to do 100% completion. This game became very tedious toward the end. All in all, Arkham Knight was a decent game, but I can't for the life of me understand why Rocksteady had such a raging boner for the batmobile. It was nice at first, but holy shit!

As for the story, I wasn't crazy about it. Jason Todd is one of my favorite DC characters, but everyone was right about him in this game. His presence feels meaningless when you already know who the Arkham Knight is. Although I will admit, I enjoyed his reveal scene in Arkham Knight more than the Under the Red Hood scene. You actually felt how broken he was.

Yeah, when I did it on the original version of the game I summoned about 40 monsters using every scroll, wand and slot I had, I killed his mages and there was about 25 minions left so I just hit him with everything.

He killed every summon and one of my party.

This time I'm going to use summons to stall him but I'll play smarter, greater malison so I have a chance of getting some control effects off on him and loads of potions and buffs. Sarevok is a level 16 fighter with 18/00 strength. I'll be a level 8 paladin with 19 strength and 18 dex. I'm going to have to stack buffs (fortunately at least I already have a lot of buffs to stack) to not get gibbed in a round even with my insane stats. I'll need haste, chant and bless just to tear his mages down too.

I think my mage will unload multiple damage wands while I'm at it. I've got three wands of magic missiles and I've used a handful of charges on imoen to disrupt casters. I just finished chapter 6 but have the TOSC content to do as well.

Of course the mind flayers are going to be hell in 2. I dumped int.

Yeah its a lot of fun. The story, the characters, and the style of the combat system is fantastic. I cant wait to see what more the game has to offer. I never really got to enjoy FF12 since it was released at the end of the PS2's life and i was more focused on PC games. My only quarrel with it is its designed for a a 7.1 surround sound system and i don't own one so sometimes sound effects and music sounds faded or far too loud. I wish there was a way to turn it off but i cant seem to find it anywhere.

I really love the SteelBox treatment it got. Square Unix seem to be doing for their PS4 games releases and its awesome. I love steel boxes and the ones released by Square Unix are the best ones i own.
Sorry about the shitty smartphone pictures.It looks much better than in the picture

Nice. I slacked on buying the steelbook edition. It was sold out on Amazon before I had the chance to buy it. Not the end of the world though, lol.

It's not just my favorite Final Fantasy, it's also in my top three. Right now it's making me forget that I'm falling out of love with video games. It's such a cozy game to play. The Zodiac Age feels like an awesome remaster with its reorchestrated soundtrack,
improved textures, and new gameplay balances.

The discussions on the metagame is pretty hot on Gamefaqs, too. So far my team is:

Vaan: Ninja
Penelo: Red Mage

Although I may restart and change Penelo to something else. I'm not sure.

I played FF XII around release, and I remember one of my goals for power leveling was to get a 99+ chain combo, at least I think that was what it was, and you got like a lot of exp for each combo level. I may have to pick up zodiac age just to finish the game. I always felt it played like Final Fantasy XI at the time.

God fucking damnit Nintendo is so incompetent. I bought Splatoon 2, thinking that they would have learned their mistakes from the first game.

They had a few years, already had assets made, so Splatoon 2 should be packed with content right?

No, they fucking did it again! A small selection of maps in the game, one game mode which is turf wars and this stupid fucking hourly map rotation shit again.

Are you fucking kidding me? Fuck this company. Dont buy Splatoon 2. Might as well wait a year after the "free updates" that add in all the shit that should have been there at launch.

I like it, but it is indeed much of the same. Also, the online is a joke... like, intentionally bad. Like they set out to make the worst online experience possible to teach us all a lesson. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON'T BUY MULTIPLE CONTROLLERS AND PLAY ON THE SAME COUCH AS YOUR FRIENDS, TIMMY!

Want to get in a lobby with a buddy or two and splat some randos online? Well, you fucking can't. You can only host a private match, which you start in the game, then you use the Switch app on your phone to add other people to it and voice chat through.

Also, any buddies on the opposing team in this private match can't be communicated with. Also you can't just voice chat while you're doing whatever on the Switch, you can only voice chat once you've opened a lobby in the game and added people to it.

So far the only way to play online with pals is to wait for one friend to join a public online match, then co-ordinate with them using something like Skype or whatever, because remember you can't voice chat through the Switch app unless you're in a private lobby together. If the match has no free slots, well you have to wait for a match or two for a slot to become open. Just sit there and wait, staring at a WAIT FOR SLOTS screen. Oh yeah you probably won't be on the same team either.

I can't wait to start paying for this next-level online experience next year. Nintendo... ya got me.

Yeah, its a cozy game alright. Fran is probably my favorite so far though ive only played the game for around five hours and only heard her say a handful of sentences. I love how She only begins to warm up to Van when he offers the crystal without hesitation to Balthier, just to get him to help with saving Penelo. And when they see Penelo with the Judge and Larsa, she tries to comfort Van, telling him everything is going to be OK. Which was probably the first time she approached Van in a way that didn't mean that they had to deal with him because of their circumstance. Plus with the improved textures she looks gorgeous.

There is just so much going on with these characters that i will try to go through the story twice in a row just to capture the details that went into their design. plus there is probably a lot of replay value in the game with the job system and all.

I went with what seem appropriate for the characters so Van is a thief, Penelo is a white mage, Basche is a knight, Fran archer, and Balthier a machinist.

It looks like FFXIV was heavily inspired by FF12. Its strange for me since i just recently quit playing that game only to come back and play the original now.

If Maria was just James's manifestation and Laura was free from any kind of Silent Hill manifestations, then how were those two able to interact?

I think born from a wish was meant to delve deeper into what Maria was in James' representation of Silent Hill and her experiences before she meets with James foreshadows her meeting with him and how he's "looking for the you that's not you".

It brings more backstory to the table with Maria and James, but the overall purpose of the expansion was basically just a prequel to explain Maria's conception and her meeting with James.

>>704548

The way I interpreted it, there's one of two explanations:

Maria is an actual person born out of James's psyche by Silent Hill just temporarily while he's there, which is why she gets sick in the Leave ending. She'd never survive long outside of Silent Hill, but anyone could see her even in Silent Hill if the town allowed them to.

Maria's a kind of "shared" monster between him and Laura. Laura never sees any of the actual monsters in Silent Hill because she's a kid without any guilt or psychological trauma for the town to hold a mirror up against, but since she knew the actual Mary and experienced the pain of her death (as much as children can anyway), she can also see Maria.

Hmmm, this could be it. I have to play the game again for the rest of the endings but I'm not a fan of shooting monsters in bloody rooms, fog is where the deal is at.
One thing that's also bugging me is Ernest. Why was he able to interact with Maria if he's just a ghost? I reckon Maria isn't real because her lines between being real and not are blurred, so she somehow tapped the spirit underworld.

Eh, it's probably best to treat Born From a Wish as non-canon. It was kind of just tacked on to the game in the Greatest Hits version just to have some incentive for fans to re-buy the game there's a metaphor for modern DLC business practices in there somewhere. It's far from Team Silent's best work.

On topic, holy fffffuck this secret mission is getting under my skin. It's been years since I've been tempted to throw a controller but this one is incredibly frustrating. The worst part is I know I could just come back as Dante and it'd be way easier, but I can't let myself move on with the game. I've gotten so close so many times.

Sometimes I think it's a shame EV is where a lot of people start because the story in it is pretty empty but then I remember it is the newest game until PBS comes to us westerners.

When I finish Deep Crimson I'm going through Shinovi Versus again, this is my week.

Well yeah if you don't already have a 3DS it's not entirely worth gettting one for 2 fighting games. Since the announcement there won't be any more SK 3DS titles there definitely isn't much reason. The anime recaps the first story well enough and Deep Crimson isn't entirely necessary to understanding what the Crimson Squad is if you've gone through the first story in some form.

I imagine SK will keep going in the direction of having tons of cute girls to fight as and more variety in levels, but less emphasis on story. That's cool, 75% of the games are basically there as is. I thought the main story was pretty sweet and had good themes anyhow. Excited to see where it goes in the future because it's obviously increasing in popularity every release!

Uncharted 4 is so awful. Except for the prettiness, anyways. The game starts out fun enough but the platforming becomes a major chore and the story gets more and more cliche as it unfolds. By the time the skank comes around to complain about shit her husband is LITERALLY FAMOUS FOR I started skipping scenes. The skipping scenes button is more useful than any other mechanic in the fucking game, some of the lines are pretty funny but the drama is so fucking awful I applaud anyone who can sit through every scene for their sheer strength.

How in the fuck did this get so many 10/10's from mags? The dialogue between characters gets so bad halfway through the game that I just wanted it to fucking end. I was literally saying to myself "Please, please just be the last chapter. Let this be it." The entire final half of the game. Watching him make 30ft jumps no fucking problem but then needing a crate to jump a wall when he has A FUCKING ROPE gets so insanely fucking aggravating immediately, and only gets worse later on. Then at some point he finds a stick and is like "I should use this to climb too." THERE ARE STICKS EVERYWHERE. The line that sums up the entire game can be found when they are trapped in a rope net and Drake asks Skank "Do you have a knife?" and she just says "No."

You just killed FIVE HUNDRED FUCKING GOONS AND NOT ONE PERSON ON THIS ENTIRE FUCKING TREASURE HUNT EVEN BROUGHT A FUCKING KNIFE to this ABANDONED FUCKING ISLAND?!

Oh my fuck, I'm so glad I've found someone else who thinks this game Is a turd.

It's just the same fucking game again, but with worse pacing, a long as Fuck feeling scene where you play as kid Nate and are shit right in the middle of the third act... the brother retcon was shit and J didn't like much about their relationship, didn't like the brother at all really. It had pacing like the Last of Us in a lot of places for fucks sake, and I'm a ladder moving apologist.

Just bad and dumb and far too reliant on spectacle, especially when the best bit of the game by far was in the E3 presentation.

I think losing Amy Hennig over story differences is probably the key thing that killed it. Even though Uncharted 3 wasn't great it was still serviceable, unlike this trainwreck. I wish I could play Amy Hennigs UC4.

At least they had the balls to definitively end the series, though I'm sure they'll find a way around it if their pockets start feeling light. I also haven't bothered spoiling anything because honestly I've seen porn with better plots.

Also everyone goes crazy about how much more "mature" and "nuanced" the characters are in this, but that makes it feel like something from a totally different game series. It's also incredibly hard to empathise with these characters little personal struggles when you kill literally hundreds/thousands of people in each game. You can fudge it when the game doesn't take itself seriously, but as soon as it puts on its big boy pants the super seriousness and the casual murder just clash so hard.

Also the set pieces are almost all just things collapsing, the climbing is duller than assassins creed and the jeep is utterly joyless to drive apart from the chase after the train.

These are supposed to be fun adventure romps but everyone is just all whiny and melancholic, and the stuff they discuss is so boring and meh. It's like Indiana Jones decided Indy had a brother and made the whole 4th film about how Indy needs to retire.

Well the game explicitly tells you but still, I've got a few unfortunate class picks myself it seems, but I can't be sure really.

The entire game is kinda weird tbh, I never played the original or any other modern FF game (FFVIII was the most recent one I played aside from the remakes) so maybe I'm not used to it.
But I'm like 20 hours in and I'm still not sure if I'm playing the game right or not. The story is entertaining and all, but the gameplay is incredibly unintuitive and poorly paced thus far.

Just starting a playthrough of oblivion. For some reason I had never played Oblivion before, so I got what Nexus basically said are the necessary mods, just a few aesthetic ones, nothing too drastic, and I'm about to get on with it.

Does anyone have any tips for Oblivion? Tips that won't spoil anything obviously.

Always make sure to get 5 full points every time you level up. A good way to start out is by running through all of the Arena fights. Even if you don't use magic, make sure to complete the Mages Guild quest line so that you can enchant your shit. If you can, get the expansions, both are good but Shivering Isles is great.

Enjoy, Oblivion might not have been the best game of all time but I loved it.

Yeah i agree about the gameplay. It just seems awfully repetitive and unengaging. I think its their attempt at handholding us through the main story for now and the real fun starts later on. FF games typically are like that, really boring start that tries to get you used to the battle system then branches out later on. I guess for now we can just sit back and enjoy the story until they finally let us enjoy that battle system in all its glory.

Well, maybe there is no wrong classes but there are better combined classes than others. I don't want to make my experience with the secret bosses anymore difficulty than they need to be.

Basche: Samurai/knight
Penelo: White/machinist
Fran: Archer/red

There's a good a thread on gamefaqs discussing the meta. Someone mentioned it to me and i looked it up and chose the classes based on their best advice. Its been working fairly well so far.

Awesome game other than that, amazing story and characters. Miles ahead of the last game I played, fucking Uncharted 4

Sleeping Dogs is really fun. I got it for free when I bought a video card a while back, and I breezed through it, not because it's short, but it kept me engaged. I never played the DLC, but the core game is great, and it deviating around Hong Kong to do the side things are actually rewarded instead of just being distractions.

So I had a bunch (three) old Xboxes around and got in the mood to try and fix one (finally) that I knew just needed to be put back together properly. I cleaned the lens and totally fucked up putting the top little guard in and the fucking CD tray wouldn't open. I searched my whole house for the fucking AC cord but couldn't find the damn thing, realized I likely gave it away.
So I'm at Goodwill and they have this AC cord that has rounded edges but was smaller. I figure fuck it if this doesn't work I'm out 70 cents and can get rid of the fucking things for space. I go and snap it in and holy shit, it fits. Turn the thing on and it fucking works perfectly.
Then I remembered I got one of these Xboxes for 50 cents at a garage sale. An apparently perfectly working one, holy shit. I have a giant box of Xbox games (it was my favorite console at the time despite not having RPGs, loved the power) that I can now play.

Does anyone have any links to get the Xbox MC shit going? The kind where you can burn discs to a hard drive, I tried looking for this shit a while back but couldn't really find it/was broke. I think I'm gonna try making the one with the fucked drive a modded console if I ever stop playing Halo 2

But on the bright side, the old pawn shop a la mom and pop CD Land is still open and I bought $50 worth of shit for myself. Mostly Xbox games at an incredible deal and a Genesis controller so the second port doesn't go bad (no friends lol)

I picked up;
Hitman: Blood Money (played the 360 collection)
Tenchu: Stealth Assassins (had a Tenchu game on PS2 that was decent)
Half Life 2 (played Orange Box)

I started playing Cave Story+ on the Switch for the first time few weeks ago. I like how short but story filled it is. I wasn't sad just disappointed that Toroko's death is inevitable. I actually wished there was an available choice to save her, she was too cute for death. Gameplay wise its is only hindered by the skill of the player which after countless deaths anyone should memorize what they need do to.

I'm currently on my last playthrough for Curly Brace's ending with the 'hell' level. I'm going full Spur/Nemesis with maxed rockets just so Balos doesn't have a chance to fuck me in the ass.

among any genre of video game, mgs3 has some of the best boss fights ever conceived. you wouldn't notice on easier difficulties but it's one of those games that's really worth playing on hard for how much it meaningfully challenges you. it's not just "enemies have +20% damage output/resistance now" bullshit like a lot of games.

people might care about weeb shit, but not many will care about niche primarily-fanservice-oriented 3ds exclusive shit. especially when there's better side scrolling beatemups on other systems, and there's proper 2d multiplayer beatemups on the console like Streets of Rage 3D. and as for single player focused beatemups, the best are all the 3D character action games. you still get good modern ones like Killer is Dead and the like.

Literally have not given Triple Triad a chance, and thank God the game doesn't force it down your throat (at least so far), I'm not interested.

I think the game has its strong points, I like the story and at this point even the junction system, despite seeing everyone say GF's aren't a good strategy. How the fuck not? They do the most damage, they don't waste anything, spells are what make your stats strong, so I don't see how spamming GF's ISN'T the best strategy.

There's way too much "where the fuck do I go" though, that and talking to NPC's bores the piss out of me.

FF8 is one of those love it or hate it kind games. The part you're in is probably the worst in the game. It just didn't really have any point behind it, and it totally killed the pace of the story. The weapon system is retarded, the junction system is broken, and the battle system is shallow with Squall having the only useful limit break. Unless you're interested in the story and don't mind playing a broken ass game, i'd stay away from FF8.

I just beat TW3 for the second time at Blood and Bones and got a waaaaaaay better ending than the first time around. It also seemed way easier, because I already knew the game mechanics.

I also tried playing it at all Ultra settings at 1440p at a lower framerate when I've been playing it at lower settings for consistent 100hz and I gotta say the lower framerate is actually worth the better visuals. Granted it still runs higher than 60hz, but still, the game is pretty goddamn impressive looking when pushed to the limit.

Same here. I Just left Eruyt Village story wise and i maxed out the license of my main three characters. I have a tendency to get lost and over level my characters because of it but i didn't think i would fill in the entire license board so early in the game.

Nah bro. Larsa just left my party. I kept him around for all the hunts he can be used him. It would have been stupid not to do so. Adrammelech is the only optional esper I've obtained so far.

I've never felt so determined to finish off a boss but I finally did it after countless deaths and a couple of days.

Apparently the Switch version will be getting classic graphics and more challenges sometime this month as well.

I lost a shit ton to balos's first form, and the triple boss marathon preceding the hell level, but somehow the first time i finally got past it, I beat the second and third forms of balos by the skin of my teeth on the first try. I was mentally preparing myself for the next run through the level but then I won before my last bit of health went out. god that was a good game. I'm curious about the 3ds version, the environments are really interesting when they're fully fleshed out in 3d, and you can have the characters and enemies still be sprites if you want that.

Talking about sequels, I just finished Yakuza and was ready to burn Yakuza 2 when I find out it's a DVD9 and SCPH-30000 have problems reading DVD9, now I'm fucked. I'll try, but I don't think it's gonna work as my previous dual layers didn't work either. NTSC-J is on two DVD5 discs though but I don't think they have English language, I'll have to find out. That damn PS2 has sometimes been such a pain in the ass but amazing how it's still working after all these years of neglect.

Playing Skyrim as an evil character just feels so fucking wrong... I feel like the game shoehorns me into a hero position with the main quest, and even the music is so heroic and mighty, it just feels awkward with my sneaky Archer.

In all my years and many playthrough, I've only done the Dark Brotherhood questline once, because I felt like it never made sense for my characters to be an assassin. Now I create a character solely for this purpose, and it just feels like I'm playing wrong.

Still playing some Elite.

I've been taking part in war after war in the name of the Emperor. I joined the 9th Legion and they're full of awesome people. Over 300 players strong and growing. Last week we had a pitched war with the Federation over the system of Puntin. We were evenly matched all the way to the end, when everyone pulled out all the stops. We happened to come out on top.

New war is in Tuljin. So far don't see much of a Fed presence here, so I'm racking up Powerplay points damn quick.

My impression of Skyrim is that you're always kind of morally grey. I think this is because that's what TES has been doing for ages. It's the same in Morrowind and Oblivion.

You're never really a good guy. Over the course of your adventures you end up killing, stealing, defiling, and whatever else. Usually, in the end, to bring about some sort of positive thing, but that happens regardless of how evil you are in accomplishing your goals. Being a good guy in a TES game would actually mean not doing a lot of the quests. I recall in Morrowind there's a Legion quest where you have to arrest a guy for smuggling Dwemer artifacts, and you haul him in for one, tiny bauble. And then you hear that a Legion colleague has started living in his house. Seems obvious to me that they just planted the evidence and used the rookie to haul him in, so they could steal his house.

Being a good guy in a TES game would mean becoming some sort of ascetic monk. Which, to be fair, is perfectly possible and only relies on your willpower to stay away from all that shiny content you'd be missing out on. But that's why I like TES games, I guess.

It's totally viable in Skyrim. You just put everything into Heavy Armor, get the perk where your Gauntlet Damage Resistance is added to your unarmed damage, and then put everything into Smithing and get Daedric or Dragon gauntlets. Then you fist dragons. Fists of the Pugilist enchantment also, on all your gauntlets, and play as Khajiit or Argonian for unarmed bonus from claws.

Depends on what you mean by learning curve. In one sense its really steep since heraldic law can be confusing and a lot of stuff isn't explained super well, so it's easy to make decisions that don't mean what you think they mean and utterly screw yourself, which is frustrating and not usually the most satisfying way to learn. On the other hand, it's also probably the most "natural" grand strategy game in that it's also basically a roleplaying game. Since the best way to learn these things is to stick with them despite your inevitable fuckups, a good way to approach your first couple of games is to avoid the minmaxing strategy game mindset and just have fun with your character. Roll with the punches until you start getting a feel for things, and then you can worry about getting the biggest blob. Pick a nice, isolated spot (Ireland is universally thought of as "tutorial island" since you have a clear goal and no major threats to worry about), maybe put on a CK2 lets play or something in the background, then go to town. Marry your cousin and assassinate some children.

I still need to get around to playing Sim City 4. I loved playing Sim City at a friend's house as a kid and when our family got Sim City 2000 I played the everloving shit out of it on our computer (I even bought a Sim City 2000 trading card game back then). I never played 3000 or 4, though, since by that time the family computer became my older brother's computer basically so I only would get like an hour after school to use it before he got home from football practice.

So I bought a Nintendo switch, wasn't expecting much but wanted some new piece of tech to play around with. And it's very unimpressive graphically, the amount of games after 5 months or so after release is pathetic.

I was very skeptical about the weird controller and the grips that slide off. The joystick placement is a bit too low on the right piece of the controller.

Anyway I tried playing with the controller taken apart like this picture...and IM IN LOVE. I have neck and shoulder problems from multiple injuries to the same area, and sometimes get muscle spasms from long gaming sessions and this thing has pretty much fixed that.

Yes it could've been made even better possibly, but oh my god. The ability two move both of your arms independently doesn't sound like much(and probably isnt if you dont get discomfort easily) but in for me it's the absolute most comfortable and relaxing gaming experience I've ever had, hands down. Any game that ican be played with a gamepad I want to play with this controller. Absolutely in love.

I almost feel like I'm controlling the game with my mind because my arms are so relaxed, just laying fully on my arm rests. Kinda feels more immersive.

That said it definitely isn't the optimal way to play if the game is super difficult because pressing certain buttons is a bit clumsy, like pressing the d-pad. I'm sure I'll get used to it though.

Sorry if this seems like i'm shilling nintendo. Don't buy the switch, Zelda is literally the only game worth playing. No virtual console, almost nothing on the store. It's pretty sad.

I wasn't really impressed with the joystick. It's just too small, your hand starts to get tired after a short while cause there is nothing to grip, just your hands in a strange shape that gets uncomfortable really fast. I played Mario Kart at my friend's house and we ended up fighting over the "pro" controller he kept when he played single player games cause who ever has it won't get tired as fast and has better control and will most likely win the match.

I've been playing PUBG with a couple friend the last few days.

It's janky, it looks like a turd, it's early access with paid crates, but goddamn it, it's fun.

Yeah I saying it's not good for difficult games (competing against another human is usually difficult) and the joysticks are not great, but they're not bad. And for a handheld device they're the best I've ever used.

But the fact I can just lounge about in whatever position i want is what I'm really talking about. That's what makes it so comfortable. As far as playing BOTW goes I haven't had any sort of fatigue using the joystick at all.

for single player chill games I love this. Specifically free roam games where you spend a lot of time running around.

Yeah, despite everything this game's got going against it you just can't keep a good concept down.

It actually makes a lot of sense that the controller would be comfortable.

Btw Splatoon 2 is supposedly awesome if you're looking for games

Sim City 4 is great, and it is still being actively supported via mods and add-ons thanks to a huge and dedicated player base.

I just discovered you can now add custom pictures and videos in Planet Coaster. My first attempt to put it to good use on my Suspended Coaster 'The Mighty Monarch" is still a little rough but I've seen some insane shit other people have created.

Started a new GTA IV file. It's been quite a while since my last play, and I almost forgot how insanely atmospheric this game is. It really feels like I'm walking the gritty streets of Brooklyn. Driving around NYC in one of Roman's Cab on a rainy night, taking people where they need to go as some smooth jazz plays on the radio. Head up to Queens for a weed deal. Take the girl out to the cabaret, then back to that run down apartment in the little section of town where all the poor slavs fresh off the boat live, watch some TV before bed. Feeling the pressure as the Russian mobster your cousin is in deep debt to leans on you for increasingly shady favors. Thinking about the old country, the atrocities you personally committed during the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s, the human trafficking you did with the Eastern European mobs afterwords, worrying that even though you're so far from home one of Bulgarin's men will put two bullets in the back of your head...or worse. Then cousin Roman calls you to come out for drinks and bowling and you try to forget for now.

GTA V had some atmosphere, but not quite the level IV had. Maybe if there was more time spent on the three protagonists individually, rather than constantly having them crossover. I'd especially liked Franklin's involvement with the CGF and South Central gang life to have been more fleshed out. Idk.

I've never played GTA5 but I do agree that GTA4 and DLCs have top notch atmosphere, never understood people who bashed on it saying it's too gray and grim. Well you're playing as a murderous Slav trying to survive in NYC, what did you expect? TLAD felt monotone but it was still great, TBOGT was bombastic and fun.

I think that's where the problem starts for a lot of people. At the time, most wanted "GTA San Andreas: Again" (and I'm sure there are people that still wish it would have been that) and GTA IV was decidedly not that.

Which, y'know, is fine. I'm a huge fan of GTA IV, it's one of only, like, 2 GTA games I actually 100%'d. But I can at least understand why people complained about it looking the way it did when the game that came before it was so colorful and saturated.

GTA5 could been even better if the dumb fanboys hadn't supported GTA online and made Take Two to walk away from single player DLC idea...
