Alright this game is fun as shit I think I might like it more than the first one. The non linearity works in its favor and for someone like me that doesnt usually take to open world games much this ones is just condensed enough
Carving out a path that goes against the given on in dashes is really fun.
and the more movement upgrades you unlock the funner it gets.
The game has a teleport system but why bother. Its nice they included it but I haven't used it once and can't imagine other players use it often when getting around is this fun.
And I feel like he colors arent as blinding as they were in the first one, the whites dont feel like you're staring at a lamp for an hour even though everything still stands out well.

I am happy to hear that youre enjoying yourself. Ive been kinda worried about trying that game.

Right now I'm playing Yakuza Zero after slogging through asscreed II. I feel really good playing a game that's actually interested in entertaining me. Every asscreed I've ever played just leaves me feeling molested and violated. Yakuza is really nice. Only complaint is I couldnt really figure out which version to start with, because the steam titles are kind of confusing. So I went with 0, because its the smallest number.

I prefered the first one myself. I traded ME 2, it wasnt bad I just didnt feel it like the first. Ive got Yakuza remastered on PS4, its awesome but the end game boss is brutal, I got really far then he kicked my ass and I need to level up and do the whole final building again, damn good game though.

I just finished tyranny for the third time on the hardest settings possible (new game + lets you keep powering up the same character over multiple plays). I also enjoyed divinity: original sin. Looking for recommendations on another CRPG that is similar to either of those. Doesn't have to be a fantasy setting, but an in depth spell system is a plus.

Planescape. It's the only other one that had neat spells while feeling pretty similar. Tides is closer to Disco and not really spell oriented at all. Actually just using spells as your thing makes that a hard one although I guess Blackguards has an intricateish spell system in spite of being a very different game. Maybe Arx? Tbh you basically just listed the best game I've ever played in terms of magic system. Not everything else was as great but frankly I enjoyed Tyranny way more than I ever did Pillars. All the other ones either flat out don't have a magic system or the spellcradting system itself is garbage like Shadowrun.

Actually you know what if you're into that kind of game but don't care about it being a crpg then the ARPGs KOTOR and VTMB aren't that bad either. Force lightning and Tremere blood magics are two of the most pure fun magics to use in any game by far just for the oure visceral entertainment of it and they're fantastic games to boot. But really though you're never going to find a magic system quite as good as Tyranny, or as dynamic a spell and environment system as Divinity Original Sin, although come to think of it Dark Messiah of Heroes of Might and Magic has pretty close to an identical type of magic and environment system as Divinity uses except it's set in the first person rather than as a crpg.

No, I'm saying the game forces you to play a crazy person in order to get anywhere. It was good as an experience. But I don't feel like playing it again, because there's nothing else to see there. I won't have a new experience because you're forced to play a certain way. It was funny. It was well written, in it's own weird way. But it's not a good game.

>>749825
Planescape might be the way to go. I was looking at it on the steam store. Who hasn't at least played KOTOR, if not beaten the ever living hell out of it's dead corpse? Great game. What's VYMB?

I put like nearly 1,000 hours into Elsword before I quit in like... 2017? I did enjoy for what it was but I got bored with it. Although apparently it's still going on.

Granblue Fantasy isn't technically a MMORPG but it's a gacha. Thankfully they seem to throw a lot of free stuff so I'm at the point I can basically play any event without much ease and I'm in no rush to get to endgame content.

I played Maple Story on and off but I couldn't really deal with it being super laggy despite it being not nearly as intensive on my old toaster.

I am going to try out PSO2 when the English version releases.

Skate 3. Skate 2 is arguably better than 3 still though. But Skate 3 is still fun.

Skater XL looks like it's closing the gap but something still isn't quite right imo.

Skate 3 on hardcore mode is probably my favorite.

Skater XL vs Session probably comes down to preference. Both have cool board control that lets you flip/scoop slow or fast, allowing you to do stuff like 540 flips or varial double flips. Also stuff like just doing a really slow heelflip down a drop. I've played the newest versions of both, and I prefer Skater XL so far though. Something about the gravity and grinding physics felt off in Session.

There's a dude on youtube named nightspeeds who is actually good at both games though, so his videos might give you a better idea.

I have many favorites, but right now I'm thinking:

> Fable series (of course TLC is best, but I enjoyed 2 and 3 when I was younger)
> Mass Effect series (1-3, even though the ending of 3 was a huge disappointment)
> Runescape 2 (I don't think I ever got into a game like I did this one)

Which games do you think are the most OVER rated?

Deus Ex was never that good

Mass Effect 2 I didnt even know was supposed to be good. That game was a real steaming pile of shit and proof that you don't need to make good games, only get the combined forces of soulless corporate power with casting couch Hollywood agents.

Isn't that a "so bad it's good" game? Doesn't seem like something that should be on an overrated list. If you think it's bad, that's because it is. If you like it because it's so bad, that's because it is.

I'm judging it as a video game. From that perspective, no I don't understand why anyone would like such an awful game where the main mechanic is just holding forward to keep walking. I understand some people might like it because it's "art" or whatever, but you could tape a banana to a wall and call that art so that doesn't really mean much.

It's like people don't understand that you might want some gameplay in your game. Even death stranding has more gameplay, and it's still a walking simulator.

I think we should differentiate between games and interactive movies. Games involve challenges that must be overcome in order to progress. Interactive movies simply require you to make a decision or press a button in order to continue. Here's a half decent litmus test: If an autofire controller can complete the media in question, it is not a game.

I enjoyed Steins Gate a lot. I would check out the VN and at least complete a couple of routes before watching the anime. The nice thing is even if you do watch the anime first (I did) there are plenty of surprises to be had in the VN.

Other than that I don't know of many specifically on PS4. A lot of anime games on PS4 use visual novel style story telling. Anything by Idea Factory will be a visual novel kind of story on top of other gameplay (usually RPG).

Do you have an android phone? You can run a lot of visual novels on those.

I would imagine so. I haven't really tried a lot of them, but anything I throw at it, it runs pretty smoothly. Some hiccups here and there but nothing daunting.

It's funny you would mention Steins;Gate cause it's one of those visual novels I had a hard time getting into after I watched the anime. It was a little too Chuuni, in the anime it was fine cause you get to zone out a bit. I still enjoyed it a lot once I got into it, but its definitely one of those VNs that I needed time to get into. My personal dark Chuuni past might have had s hand in that

Idea Factory has a lot of potential but I feel it was wasted on half baked games and outsourcing recently. I do really like their style but I'm just waiting till the next mainline Neptune game before I pass judgment. I played White heart Vita game and it was atrocious. Copy pasted bosses, including the final boss, and highly repetitive gameplay. I was honestly surprised just how bad it was.
But I get you. I prefer the Atelier games on the Vita over the Ps3 since they follow a more traditional visual novel style instead of the 3d models.

Yeah I have an android phone, Galaxy 10+. I bought specifically to play Visual Novels but I never got around to figuring out how to do it. How do you go about doing it?

Ahaha well Cortana up there was asking about PS4 VNs and Steins Gate specifically, but I couldn't think of many since I didnt try much on PS4 other than Clannad. I am still really behind however many I try to play, there are a million more I haven't.

You know, I thought the new Azure Lane looked so cool when it first got announced and now I'm not even tempted to try it for similar reasons you mentioned. It straight up doesn't look fun enough, even with all of the cuteness. If anyone did play it I'll be happy to hear about it.

I only ran Fate/Stay Night on VNDS for android and ended up not actually playing through it, but it seemed to work ok and I think there are lots of novels compatible with that. It does take quite a bit of work to get everything up and running as I remember. You gotta convert them and then install them to the app from a PC.

Wowies 10+... I was playing a lot of games on the Note 9 and the little machine could run anything I threw at it. I'm using a V40 now and praying to the goddesses it holds up. Runs Mabi Mobile well enough anyways.

Post here if you want to get some others opinions about a game you're on the fence about. Hopefully someone who has actually played it can give you some pros and cons
For instance, I'm thinking about buying Darkwood which looks kind of neat but the top down aspect worries be and so does the fact that a lot of these survival type games can get repetetive after a few hours. The steam reviews are good but most of them just talk about how the game scared them shitless and not anything else the game has to offer.

You probably won't like it.
I myself did but it's generally considered the worst of the main (numbered) games of the series.

You might be better off with AC Rogue, which is a spinoff of 4.

It's the first game they started adding naval combat to, and that and the multiplayer were probably my favorite bits from 3
However, it's definitely more focused on the traditional AC kinda shit rather than the naval combat itself, and since you said you didn't like 2 odds are you also won't like 3 for similar reasons.

Tried Rogue. It was garbage. Completely sloppy and unresponsive. Terrible graphical and audio glitches. The only reason I like 4 is because I think its the least glitchy game in the series. Even asscreed II is frustratingly broken when I'm trying to climb and freerun under pressure. Particularly the venice areas where we have to spend half the game.

So i played a few games of Smash at a friends and it seems like a cool game i'd like to play a little more since i never got to play the smash games when i was younger.

Is buying a switch worth it right now or should i wait for the price to drop further since i'm kinda broke? Which other games beside BotW can I look forward to trying?

I already have a wii which i modded to emulate pretty much any old game i want so i'm not desperate to upgrade for that purpose.
