Same, but I only played Heavy Rain and DBC. DBC was just... okay. Not worth writing home about, and not worth sixty dollars either. I recall buying it at the time because I had fuck-you-money to spend.

Heavy rain was hack writing and I regret the 9 hours I spent on it. Beyond two souls was decent. I don't think I'd buy a quantic dream game for more than 10 dollars, but they're worth giving a shot if you don't mind what amounts to an interactive movie.

I heard and verified via experience that when you die in a video game you lose one incarnation (spiritually speaking..) .. I feel a bit of energy loss when dying in a video game ... Is there any way to bypass this so i can play cod and die as much as you can without losing any energy / incarnation templates shit?

I know it's nothing revolutionary when it comes to mechwarrior, but it's a solid revival. Seems like they essentially rebuilt MW4: Mercenaries for today. Anyone have it yet? Mechwarrior is my favourite series of all time, and this just popped in out of the blue. I'm planning on buying it next pay, minimum requirements allowing. I'll pray to RNGesus on this one.

And more crazy shit going on with the landscape, I realise most of the vegetation is imports from Earth, but I want fluorescent seas, aurora borealis, meteor storms, lenticular clouds, giants' causeways, meteor craters, the devs seem dedicated to mediocrity.

Guys, this game is amazing.


It was made by the same people who made the original "Quest" games (Quest for Glory etc) and it's just great, albeit a bit simple.
The atmosphere, the story is really great, and the fact it's sort of a point and click rpg, plays out really well.
Can any of you recommend me more games like this? I only played the older adventure games like Syberia or Monkey Island before this one, and it's fucking great, with the modern game engine.

Also discuss this game here if you've played it, because there's nothing on the internet about this game, though what there is is almost all positive. It's really underrated, feels like an oldschool adventure game with modern UI etc.

After finishing Hero-U I picked up Pathfinder:Kingmaker

I'm so sick of this big gap between the extreme detail of things like QFG and Hero-U, and the deep mechanics of P:K, Pillars, etc.

What the fuck dudes. Why does it have to be one or the other?
I am pretty much enjoying P:K but at the same time, I hold tab and AT MOST there's like 3 things to interact with. And yeah, they're fucking chests and cupboards and whatever. There's NOTHING like the depth you get with QFG or Hero-U, even though they're being funny with 99% of responses at least it's a response and you feel good about examining some painting on the wall.
With P:K or PoE or a ton of other games, you just feel stupid for even thinking that it might be a possibility because of course not: You hit tab and they highlight the chests or bodies that gives you only beneficial loot and if it's not beneficial then it's generic money equivalent.

Fucking hell man, I want both. I want P:K mechanics and QFG/Hero-U detail.

Then you're probably going to have to wait for a team to work 20 years to make it.

In order to have a game large enough for deep mechanics to be useful, you need to focus time on creating large stretches of area. And that means lack of detail.

Am I the only person who loves playing old games?

Am I the only person trying to find some new shit no one else knows in them?

So I was playing FFIX today and recently I got some of the useless key items from the auction house because muh collection. Well I noticed something I'm sure people already knew but you can press select for help from the moogle even on key items and the description for Griffin's Heat said it raises morale.

I thought that was strange, then I noticed in the next section EVERY fight with a griffin I got a peridot. This is really useful because it makes Ramuh's spells more powerful.

Turns out whenever you have one you will always get a peridot drop from the griffins. I looked a bit but didn't find this listed anywhere. Is it new!? PLEASE TELL ME IT'S NEW!!1

Also means other items from the auction or just random ones could have the same effect, kewlbies

In Mechwarrior 4, there was a physics glitch that allowed you to jumpjet 1500m in the air. This let you see pretty much the whole map. As long as your opponent wasn't hiding behind tall cover like a skyscraper, you could probably hit them. And nobody is looking that high in the air, because it's not supposed to be possible to get there. Add in some radar jamming and some light gauss cannons, and you can hit people further than they can target lock you. So I'd get into a black knight, have 3 ERPPC and 2 light gauss. I'd be able to cripple enemies with 1 shot at 1300m. Two shots was a kill. At 800m nothing could survive an alpha strike. The trick? If any object has a slope, it can be used to boost jump jets. This was well known. Everyone knew you could ramp off of hills. But I'm the one who discovered you could use a building's awning to catapult completely vertically into the air. Also some especially steep hills could have this effect IF you were a practised jump jet user. That was trickier, because mechs automatically brake if they go up a steep hill.

I saw a 1080p CRT back in the 90's. It was glorious. It didn't have the visible lines that CRTs usually have, and it had more photorealistic accuracy than most modern LEDs because it didn't highlight neon colors as much.

Gaming mice and keyboards are mostly bunk. The only useful feature I've seen in a gaming mouse is a button that slows the DPI so you can play FPS at high sensitivity but still snipe at long range accurately. I've been using a 10 dollar keyboard and a regular 2 button, scroll wheel optical usb mouse for over 20 years, and my CS:S K/D ratio hasn't suffered at all for it. But I can see how a better mouse/keyboard might do well for you if you play MMOs a lot. I find there's just not enough buttons with a regular mouse and keyboard to use your skills efficiently.

Gaming chairs are usually bunk. Some of them are pretty good, but if you're going to spend that fucking much of a chair, you should probably just buy a lazy boy.

RGB cases and peripherals are cool, I guess. I'm not into the aesthetic myself, but if you want to turn your computers into the Fast and the Furious, go ahead.

I’m a super diehard longtime Oddworld fan. When I was still in middle school I was part of the Alf’s Rehab and Tea mail club. I have all the games and play the first two every other month pretty much every year. And I’ve gotta say, I am super disappointed in how Soulstorm is looking.

Already kinda accepted things wouldn’t be the same after playing N&T and really hating the whole lack of frame-by-frame level design which would have probably looked way better if done cleverly with a new look. But everything shown in Soulstorm being just as bloomed out, even more cluttered, and now laden with some kind of looting system pretty much squashes any and all hope for this game restoring any credibility to the franchise. It doesn’t help that Lorne Lanning seems to regret anything after Abe’s Oddysee, essentially calling Exoddus and the two games after it rushed mistakes. Those were some pretty fucking solid mistakes, if you ask me (maybe with the exception of Stranger’s Wrath which I wasn’t too particularly fond of, but I applaud them for the risk taking). Seems like they’ve kind of left their whole ultra rusted industrial hell factory vibe behind in favor of ultra polished and bloom riddled environments a la New n Tasty, which is a real step back; gonna miss those horribly monolithic dystopian hellscape vibes.

Lol no dude I'm 29, I mean I played the original Abe's Oddyssey when I was around 8. Just looked it up and it came out in 1997 (I was 6) so that's probably about right since it was a used copy that came bundled with my used PS1 along with Tomb Raider, Rayman and Crash Bandicoot 2.

I never played Abe's Oddysee and Exodus though I have New n' Tasty and it's good though it feels weird going backward from a 3D to 2D puzzle platformer. The cinematics and story really make the Oddworld universe what it is.

I do hope we get Squeek's Oddysee someday. Funny thing is that Munch's Oddysee was one of the first Xbox games I got for Xmas the month after Xbox launched and it certainly had replay value with me trying to get Angelic Quarma, which I eventually did.

There hasn't been a major 3rd party baseball game since 2K Sports' deal ended after MLB 2K13 but I imagine MLB forced Sony to do this but at least it means Xbox and Nintendo are finally getting a good baseball series. It does seem unprecedented of having a first party studio to make their game available on other consoles especially a sports game, which have mostly been third party games with the exception of MLB these past several years.

also Javier Baez is on cover of the last PlayStation exclusive game

>Good on San Diego Studio to make more money with their MLB freaking sponsorship, but I'd never pay 60 for the base game. It's great for free, but I can't imagine buying a sports game every year.

This. I got NHL 19 free with Games for Gold and it's not bad but I can't justify paying full price to what amounts to a roster update with stuff taken out/put back in.

Yeah there's RBI Baseball, which was rebooted by MLB Advanced Media and had replaced the MLB 2K series as a third party series but it's not very good compared to The Show. I do wish they'd make another arcade baseball game like Slugfest, The Bigs or even another Mario Super Sluggers game.

A year or so ago I know I was having a hell of a time finding MAME ROMs because of all that Nintendo faggotry going after random site admins which closed down a lot of my options. But now... Even the alt-sites I was getting DC ROMs on a few months back have either disappeared or stopped offering public ROM dls.. Used to be able to get anything off Emuparadise but those days seem long gone.

Just looking for PC ver of GTA and London 69. Anyone know a ROM site that still carries them?

Thanks for that. This site looks REALLY similar to the first website I made, which was in the late 90's, and just hosted maybe 5-6 (good) SNES ROMs.

I would play them in the computer lab at the community college I was going to at the time.

I would also open up QBASIC, program a quick snowfield in less than 10 minutes, and then leave it running and walk out the door. I thought that was so cool, that I could remember how to write a snowfield off the top of my head that quickly. It wasn't.

It should be a fully 2D, or maybe 2.5D, side scroller
In my opinion the bonus stages were the best parts of the original trilogy and let's me honest the format of regular levels in those games is antiquated as fuck, so an entire crash game in 2D would be awesome
Something along the lines of DK Tropical Freeze or Yooka Layle Impossible Lair

I know I'm really late to the party (it came out 5 years ago!) but here I am and I want to discuss it. Good:
>The story missions and the writing were some of the best I've ever seen in a game or anything else.
>Trevor is such a unique and badass protagonist. That voice acting, damn. I actually did chill seshes just to see what he'd say.
>Brilliant person switching mechanic directed you to missions and prevented you from having to run back to a save point on foot after exploring and crashing your vehicle.
> High mission variety, the branching heist missions were good, but not the government jobs.
>Amazing cinematic music during important missions.
>All the minor convenience tweaks like letting you skip missions after dying 3 times and being able to replay missions for a high score. Also superpowers.
>Even though it looked beautiful, I never felt the urge to explore like I did BotW because the few things you did discover weren't worth it.
>Mediocre radio soundtrack, not enough talk radio.
>Franklin can smoke weed, Michael can drink, but Trevor can't smoke meth? I call racism.
>Almost everything that isn't part of the main story is extremely tedious and unrewarding. To contrast, I played Yakuza's minigames long after I beat the main story.
