yeah I just realized after posting in that one

Ballistic weave is awesome
Being a clothing mod I always thought it would only give 20-30 extra shielding so I never bothered with it, but I'm on survival so I thought hey why not I could probably use that bit of extra damage reduction. Blew my mind when I saw that it does 110 in both ballistic and energy damage on the highest rank, gonna be a huge help, it doubled my regular armor rating and almost tripled my energy armor. I should have got it a long time ago, the jackpot mission to unlock it is easy as pie.
Not to mention I can throw away my vault suit and stop looking like a goddamn blueberry

Survival is going pretty well so far, had some trouble in the beginning but i've gained my footing, around level 20 it starts to become manageable as long as you've got the right perks.
Set up a water farm at nordhagen thats 999 water so I pretty much have infinite caps and have my main base at hangmans alley which is convenient. Picked the brotherhood to side with for the vertibirbs, makes getting around so much easier without feeling cheaty
I'm kind of worried right now though because i'm at the mission where you have to and I think the synths in that final act are going to be hell, Ill have to make some armor with really high energy absorption.

Funny I just hit level 20 in my survival run and I can't leave covenant with out being raped by super mutants and swarms of stingwings at the same time. Suddenly my over powered sniper isn't cutting it any more but I have no weapons table nearby to make it a .50 cal.

Though I don't use the minutemen free power armor from the start, I told preston to use it. using mod that doesn't teleport power armor to oblivion when you leave your people at settlements Waiting til I join the brotherhood but waiting to meet all the factions before that. Focusing on settlement building at least in just the north side of the map. Want those swank trades and shiet.

>Tomb Raider: Escape from Rape Island

Speaking as a Tomb Raider veteran, the puzzle are borderline retarded. I guess its asking too much from gamers of today to solve some of the puzzles of the previous installments. The plot is fucking garbage, the videos of the group on the ship were very cringy, but its strangely arousing to hear Lara moan in pain every now and then and it keeps me interested. The combat is average but I find the shotgun very satisfying to use. I give it a 6.5

>>695398

lol, one of the parts that bothered me about the plot was how quickly lara became a killing machine. you know? the game briefly addresses how guilty she is after she kills someone for the first time, then acts like it didn't happen. stuff like that typically doesn't phase me, but something about it was really off putting.

other than that, the game was just okay. i liked everything the game had to offer except fire fights and stealth. ammo was given to you every five seconds, so you never had to worry about dying, and the stealth judt didn't seem to work. i still haven't gotten around to the sequel, but i've read it's better game.

I'd definitely invest in both local leader perks if you haven't already, those were one of the first perks I chose. First one lets you not worry about weapon/armor workbenches at settlements and the second one you can stay at one central settlement and have your junk brought to you with supply lines.
Also if you're doing a stealth sniper and not just a sniper i'd do the first railroad quest ASAP. The deliverer does great damage for a pistol and the fire rate is crazy, plus you get the hazmat suit which will come in handy later when you have to go to the glowing sea
One more thing, the overseers guardian which you can get in vault 81 (non hostile you just need 3 fusion cores to get in and its right by diamond city) is one of the weapons I always carry with me. It shoots an additional bullet and makes a great sniper, sometimes I even just put a reflex sight on it. IIRC its around 1500 caps and already comes with a few mods on it.

The claymore is really awesome, I've been using it as my secondary.
Carthus Flame arc is a necessity, it's just such a great spell. You can't use it on weapons that have an elemental enchantment though. You CAN use it on heavy/sharp weapons though. So keep that in mind.
Also, make sure you do the optional area of Smouldering Lake. That and keep an eye out in the catacombs. There are a total of 4 pyromancy tomes that you find in both of those areas.
Also, make sure to rescue Karla in Irithyll Dungeon. She is the one that does the dark sorceries, pyromancies, and miracles that the other trainers won't deal with. Also, I can't remember the name of the ring but there is a ring that grants additional attunement slot. There is also a Darkmoon Ring that is given for reaching Rank 1 in teh Darkmoon covenant that gives you 2 slots. But for the most part I would just keep your stats at the minimum for casting a few spells.
Basically, build a badass character and then make the pyro stuff a way to accentuate the strengths of the character.

Been playing the often forgotten Grind Session on PS1. A really good Tony Hawk clone that's worth playing if you like THPS games, thanks to solid level design, its focus on actually performing tricks and lines as opposed to collecting tons of shit, and a decent soundtrack for its time. Even as a THPS veteran this is a challenging game, and it's a fun one if you can get past its differences from the series it's aping. Feels kind of like a midway point between THPS 1 and 2, really.

Also, Shaba Games, the developers of Grind Session, went onto work on THPS titles before Activision shut them down. And oddly enough, I don't think any of the THPS games they worked on were as good as this game was.

I've also been on the Torment train. Really enjoying it, with the exception of no character customization when it comes to changing appearance. I don't understand why it wouldn't be an option, given the main character is pretty nondescript save for their tattoo. It kind of kills replays for me too, since I like to go through RPG's with different perspectives and backstories in mind, it takes some of the immersion out when you say different things but your character looks exactly the same (and with the same name). I dunno. I would've appreciated it, is all. Still a really good game.

I was a little bummed by that, too, but it's sort of in keeping with the original game. Then again the Last Castoff seems to be a lot less distinctive and well-defined as a character than the Nameless One, so the lack of customization doesn't feel as justified. But the writing and dialogue choices are usually interesting enough that it hasn't bothered me too much

Got Shadow of Mordor in some sale at some point and finally decided to let it install over the day (43 gigs... fuckn modern games) and spent about 5 hours playing tonight. I'm thoroughly enjoying myself so far and I haven't even really got into the whole nemesis thing that I read about. The combat is fluid and at the same time impactful, the executions are a nice touch and I just unlocked Brutal kills which should be fun. I imagine it will only get better as I unlock new combos. It feels like a mix of Arkham and the original Assassins Creed but just a notch harder where you cant just parry every attack with ease. I'm also loving the stealth element and the graphics are great which is another plus.

So yeah, I've barely scratched the surface but this game looks like it will offer up hours of entertainment to come. I can't remember how much it cost during sale time but it can't have been more than $20 for me to pull the trigger and then wait the better part of a year to even install it, but it has been well worth it so far. #no60dollargames? Just a thought as most of my games were bought on sale, you get a much better ROI for your time.

At least in the first Tomb Raider the first kill meant something and it was a conscious decision she took to pursue the people who wronged her, I liked the scene where she hesitated for a second before she pulled the trigger. It was a treasure both Lara and her dad pursued all their lives so you can understand her motivation.
The new Lara killed the first dude in self defense, which doesn't turn you into a killing machine and doesnt necessarily make you better at it. After that first guy, you kill about 100 later like it was nothing. The first TR you killed about 7 to 10 people max but it still left more of an impression on you than the new Lara's kill count.

clarify: you are not disabled in any way that impedes use of KB+M control?

Learn to use a keyboard and mouse to play games. Even if you prefer gaming on a couch+TV+console setup, learn to use a keyboard and mouse as well. It's worth it. You can play anything if you're used to both controllers and desktop setups.

If you're trying to play PC minecraft and want to use a controller you can. xbox controllers generally work practically right out of the box with windows OS's. ps3 controllers can be used with 3rd party software, i'm not up to date with ps4 controllers though, also you can get an inexpensive dualshock-style USB controller under numerous brands. i 100% advise having some kind of controller anyway because more gaming options = more better gaming fun.

I use a controller but only for a couple games where the d-pad joystick combo. Dark Souls and Witcher. In neither of those games you really have to aim, it's just more directional aiming and camera work. Also, with the complicated scheme, it just feels easier for someone to get used to when laid out on a controller, especially for someone who has spent so much more time using a controler like me

Rebinding the left stick to WASD controls (which I already said DOESNT WORK in the post you replied to) only allows for 8 axes of movement in Minecraft: W,A,S,D, and the diagonal combinations of two. Whereas playing on PS4, I have 360 degrees of movement. I've checked extensively, asked this board as well as Minecraft boards, and there is no way to reproduce the 360 degree movement of console Minecraft. That leads to PC Minecraft feeling clunky and slow, and me taking way, way, way longer to build anything, which kills my ambition for giant builds.

Finally giving Bloodborne the time it deserves. Not really sure how far I am in but most recently I defeated Vicar Amelia and the Witch of Hemwick.

Been playing offline since I don't have PS+ and it's been really fun figuring everything out for myself. I fucking love the lack of hand holding in this game.

AND THIS LEVEL DESIGN, shit. It's perfect. Open enough to feel a little daunting and remain interesting, but the way everything loops back around with all the shortcuts, and how really veering off the beaten path holds rewards. It's just masterful game design.

I'd say the level design is my favorite thing about Bloodborne if it weren't for its fucking incredible combat mechanics. It's all so fast paced and aggressive. Perfectly timing dodges and parries, really learning your moveset to best assess every situation. It's just so. good.

I've never typically been into Souls games. I played a bit of Demon's Souls, like 8 hours or so, and while I appreciated the difficulty of that game, it was everything else being so fucking obtuse and unwelcoming to newcomers that made me think maybe these games just weren't for me, so I put it down. I'm glad I had at least a little experience with that game though, and have gotten at least some grasp on how things in these games typically work, because it's made Bloodborne a bit easier to get into. I haven't really ran into any major sticking points or anything, mechanically.

I'm curious though. I've been sticking with the Hunter Axe and leveling it up and shit my whole time playing. I really like its moveset (particularly the transformed moveset), and I've used the torch when needed (you know, for that area of the game), but that's been it. Is it worth it to try out other weapons, or should I try to sail through the game with mainly this thing since I've already got a pretty hefty amount of stock in it? Seems like I'm getting far enough in that I should really kind of choose what to do.

It emulates mouse movement very well so it's totally fine to look around with, but you don't use the mouse to move in Minecraft and you can't set it up as if you have two mouses as far as I know (one for each analog stick)

You know, normally I dont pay attention to the whole "this game is sexist!" stuff but I saw Caroline Petit having a god damn meltdown over Yakuza 0. This time I agree. This game is so god damn misogynistic lol.

Im not even halfway done the game and Ive already seen two women sexually assaulted, not to mention Makoto, the kidnapped sex slave, who was violently tortured, raped and kept in a cage chained up like a dog and is now blind because of it.

Also I couldnt help but laugh at the club mini game you get with Goro where you have to recruit girls, can change their outfits and there is even a meter that decides how attractive they are. Amazing.

That said, im not upset because this game is fucking incredible. This is my first Yakuza game and man, I have been missing out big time. I feel like this is the perfect time to get into with with the remake and 6 coming out within the year.

FUCK the Nightmare of Mensis. I hate this place. Gone from feeling to slightly over-leveled to severely under-leveled. Bloodborne really doesn't become all that hard of a game until you reach this point.

And yeah, I know, the Chalice dungeons have way harder shit, but as someone playing through the game for the first time, this is the first real roadblock. Guess I shouldn't complain though. I know that once I make it past this I'll feel so goddamn empowered.

It's an impressinlgy massive game. I was playing Two Worlds II, and there you get this feeling there this massive world that you get to explore, while it really slams the lid on your nose, and it turns out the world is actually kind of small. Especially because there's a massive island on the world map, but it's only for multiplayer.

The Witcher 3 is kind of the opposite of that. Velen and Novigrad are already massive, but there's Skellige to explore, too. It's got that feeling to it of it actually being a world you're exploring, and not just stuff put there for you to find, like a lot of games seem to do. I haven't been on the Witcher bandwagon, but I'm honestly really impressed with The Witcher 3. If I had to say anything bad about it at all, I guess it'd be that the combat and Witcher Sense stuff is kind of simplistic, but it's honestly not bothering my at all.

Though I do kind of miss the Two Worlds II magic system that lets me summon a dozen wolfmen who then kick the shit out of my enemies in hilarious mob attacks. Especially because they then also follow you around in cutscenes. Makes me feel real wizardly.

I bought a PS+ subscription like a month or two ago just to play Bloodborne properly but haven't had time for it since.

I just got the STAKE DRIVERRRRRRR though and it's super fucking cool, but I wish the R2 was less shitty. It's so slow that I can't imagine ever being able to land even an uncharged one in a boss fight, but I guess if I need a better weapon I can just swap out to the mother fucking Kirkhammer which is the most fucking heavy metal thing I've ever seen.

Yeah, it's a game I'm definitely gonna be returning to at some point. The level design is just so dense and satisfying, peppered with difficulty in just the right places to make exploration feel truly worthwhile and rewarding. It really makes me want to explore every nook and cranny of this game. I'd never beaten a Soulsborne game before this, but I plan to now. If the rest of the games remotely stand up to this level of quality I'm gonna be busy for a while lol

Anyone think it's a good idea to move from Bloodborne to Demon's Souls? Or should I just start with Dark Souls 1?

I played it entirely offline since I don't have a PS+ subscription and it was perfectly fine. Like, I really didn't have any issues with it or miss any online features. Co-op/invasions are cool and all, but I really like playing games single player anyway and Bloodborne held up as an incredible, purely single player experience. Would totally recommend it that way, though I'm sure there are players that are all about raiding others or playing co-op. Which is cool too. I'm sure the PVP can be great, if you manage to really get into that side of it.

As for weapons, I really didn't mess around with too many of 'em on this first play through. I found a few of them scattered throughout the world but never really bought any. I stuck with the Hunter's Axe for the whole game, maybe switching to the Tonitrus as a backup weapon when I needed something a little bit quicker. I really liked the axe because its transformed moveset is god tier. Its charged R2 attack is absolutely perfect for crowd control with wide swings that ignore walls, and mixed with its overhead strikes and stabs I felt like I could pretty much keep any enemy away from me, when I needed to. It's a slower weapon than the other two you start the game with, but not as heavy as something like the Kirkhammer. Kind of an all-around weapon, really. It doesn't really focus on speed or heavy damage, one way or the other. It just offered a versatility that I really liked. But that said when I come back to it I'll definitely be playing around with more weapons than just the axe.

It was more fun to look at the environments and figure out what exactly is ahead instead of just having someone tell you, ya know?

I beat the main story of Fallout 4 on survival the other day, had a ton of fun.
I didn't plan on going the minutemen route but apparently doing "Defend the Castle" locks you in with them. Speaking of that mission, it was kind of hard, there were coursers everywhere and even the 10 turrets I set up did little help. I honestly had an easier time with the final mission.
Some tips for survival:
-get local leader and chemist as soon as possible so you can build shops, create supply lines, and craft antibiotics
-try to focus on stealth and knowing what you're going to encounter before you get there which is why you really shouldnt do survival for your first playthrough, and at a certain level the stealth perks let you walk right over mines and tripwires without activating them
-create a water farm as soon as possible while also setting up shops at that settlement where you can sell your water
-side with the brotherhood as soon as possible for the vertibirds and do a couple railroad missions until you get ballistic weave to put on your clothes
-collect all the empty bottles you can, beantown brewery respawns often and theres a little less than 100 bottles in there IIRC, even with the water farm you'll want this for the next tip
-noodle cups. the best source of food i've found, setting up a razorgrain farm is easy and with the bottles you collect and fill at dirty water sources you should have food for days
-deep pocketed armor. you can also give deep pocket armor to your companions so they can carry more, i'd suggest cait so you dont have to put points into the lockpicking perk
-explosive expert and the visible throwing arc that comes with it is helpful
-I usually carry 3 weapons and around 100-150 rounds for each of them, a long range weapon, close range, and a plasma rifle because those are great against synths

As someone that wants to get into the Souls series, and as someone that loved the shit out of Bloodborne, which of these games would you guys recommend?

I went immediately from Bloodborne to Demon's Souls, and while I'm enjoying Demon's Souls, I don't appreciate that it's so much slower. And I don't mean in terms of combat, I'm fine with the slower combat. I totally went in expecting that and I think it works beautifully. It's the grinding for souls, healing items, etc. you have to do after you get brutally fucked by a tough boss or one of the infamous "fuck you, player" moments. Moments like this were kept a lot shorter in Bloodborne. I do like the higher difficulty here but it's the monotonous stuff you have to do if you wanna get anywhere that's dragging it down. And I get that that's just a part of these games, but surely there has to be something a little smoother than this, if Bloodborne is anything to go by.

I also feel that Demon's Souls may have a little too much going on mechanically. I felt Bloodborne was mechanically perfect as an action RPG. Aside from some very minor things I don't think the way its stats or any of the micromanagement stuff could really be improved in any meaningful way, considering exactly what these things were built around.

So which Souls game, /vg/? Dark 1, 2, or 3? I've definitely heard some middling things about DS2 over the years, so I guess the choice should be between Dark 1 or 3. I'll likely pick them both up regardless but I'm curious to hear what you guys think.

I'd go Dark 1 then Dark 3 and then if you really want Dark 2.
Dark 2 certainly has a lot of flaws but I had fun playing it, theres enough new enemies, bosses, and areas to keep you intrigued its just the mechanics that bring it down.
I'd also advise you at least finish Demon's once but thats just me and I might be biased because Demon's holds a place in my heart, being my first souls game and what started me on being a huge fanboy towards this whole franchise. I see where you're coming from though, it is a bit more grindy if you want to have certain things like grasses for healing, and you'll probably love the healing system in Dark Souls. You get these things called estus flasks instead of grasses and everytime you die or rest at a bonfire they refill, and you can upgrade them to have more refills and to heal more, all 3 games have something like this. Dark Souls is also completely connected unlike Demons where you have to go to the archstones in the nexus to get somewhere, you can basically walk from the first bonfire to the last.

also forgot to mention if you're confused about what bonfires are, they are basically the lamps in bloodborne. Theres a main "hub" in all 3 games but unlike the hunters dream its actually in the world rather than being a separate place, in the second and third theres a character similar to the doll where you can spend your souls to upgrade your stats but in the first one I'm pretty sure you just spend them right at the hub bonfire (someone correct me if i'm wrong I haven't played the first one in years)
Anyways have fun, Demon's might hold a place in my heart but I still think Dark 1, along with bloodorne, is the best of the series because its when they really perfected all the mechanics and new exactly what they wanted to get out of their game. I just hope that if there ever is a bloodborne 2 they dont fuck it up like they did with dark 2

Yeah, I loved the interconnectivity of Bloodborne's level design so I think I'd really like DS1. The healing/estus system is DS1 sounds like something I'd really like. How does DS3 compare with its healing items? Same system or what?

I do plan on finishing Demon's Souls. I've been playing it a bit each night and getting further each time. Right now I'm stuck on 2-2's boss, since I'm playing a melee character and fuck Flamelurker. I think finishing this game might take me a while though as I'm finding myself more frustrated with this one than I ever did with Bloodborne. That game didn't really frustrate me at all, even when I was stuck on some shit for a while. It really is just the grindy stuff that gets to me.

Demon's is kind of a more bullshit Dark Souls 1 in a lot of ways. But I say get through it. Theres just a bit more unfair stuff that needs to be memorized where in later games its easier to do bosses and stuff first try, even if a lot of them do need memorization to not get rekt.

Just keep doing them in release order but Dark Souls 2 is optional. Its a good game but not as good.

>Theres just a bit more unfair stuff that needs to be memorized where in later games its easier to do bosses and stuff first try, even if a lot of them do need memorization to not get rekt.

Yeah I've definitely noticed this when going from Bloodborne to Demon's Souls. In Bloodborne I got by with a number of bosses first try just down to learning the combat mechanics well. Demon's relies a lot more on utilizing equipment, spells, etc. to your advantage. Which in a way I really like that idea. It adds more depth outside of actual combat mechanics and gives equipment and how you build your character a much stronger purpose. You're really not gonna get by with bullshitting your way through bosses in Demon' unless you're exceptionally fucking great at the combat, where in Bloodborne I felt like I was just fairly good at the combat. Like I wasn't great at it but I learned it and how to utilize my movesets fairly well and that was enough to get me by. Not really gonna happen that way in Demon's Souls. Which isn't really a bad thing. I just prefer Bloodborne's tighter focus.

What I don't like about the Demon's approach is that the only real hints the game is gonna give you is from other players. With Bloodborne I felt like I could figure out how to get past certain situations, enemies, bosses, etc. just down to paying careful attention to what the game was throwing at me. With Demon's the game just throws fucking whatever it can at you at times, likely hurling fireballs and shit at you while you're trying to cross a narrow bridge or something, and says "DEAL WITH IT, FUCKO." Like it's an outright mean game when it wants to be.

And again, that's not an outright bad thing. High difficulty is certainly expected and I welcome it. But there's difficulty, and then there's falling down a bottomless pit halfway through a level that you literally can't see until you're a single, twitchy step away from it.

I know people like to preach the "tough but fair" adage and git gud when it comes to the Souls games, and if I'm going by everything I played in Bloodborne I'd agree with that 100%. But goddamn there's some straight up bullshit in Demon's when it feels like being an asshole. And it's only compounded by the grindy stuff.

Dark 3 does have the estus system as does Dark 2. They're both kind of different than the first though you need different kind of items for each game
purple flame shield is great against flamelurker btw IIRC it blocks all or most of the damage he deals, I think you get it way down below in 2-2 with the flame slugs and lava

>>696004
and yeah Demon's compared to Dark, the game is more designed so you can attack the bosses and areas with pretty much any build as long as you distribute your stats right. I'm always coming back to these games to try new builds

>tough but fair
Nigga, I can complete the entire Demon's Souls game without ever losing my souls. That's tough but fair.

Here's my professional strategy; You spawn, you gather as much as you can, and then you progress all the way to the Shielded Giant or whatever his name is and kill him. You're then forced to port away.

Now you go to the Swamp. And then you proceed to suicide over and over again (while fully-powered every time) until the whole area turns pitch black. Then you really make your way through the Swamp, at max difficulty.

Except, you don't leave the Swamp until you kill Astraea and Garl Vinland. Sounds rought? Not if you're smart and wield fire and take advantage of all the perks you get with a pure-black (-5) zone.

Now that you've completed the entire Swamp without losing your souls, you've got so much EXP to spend at the Nexus that you will be over-powered, and you've got new, dope weapons and armor.

Now rinse and repeat. Go into any other area (except the beginning area), suicide until the area is pure-black, and then make your way all the way to the final boss.

If you do this, you will become so powerful that the end of the game becomes easy as shit.

Forty hours is not much for a Yakuza game. I had about 90 in 3 and 100 in both 4 and 5 and didn't complete everything in either of those games. Yakuza games are a motherfucking time vampire. The ps2 games you can complete in a shorter time.

I finally got round to playing VtM: Bloodlines, and its been eating up a lo tof my time. I really loved this game, but the closer I get to the end the more it sucks. That fucking Ming Xiao fight finally forced me to resort to godmode, since my Brawl-focused Ventrue just couldn't put out the damage needed to even scratch her before getting tentacle-raped. One of the things I loved most about the game at first was the variety of approaches you could take, its been very disappointing to realise that now I'm pretty much fucked for not going with Firearms or collecting any of the good guns.

Now I'm running through corridors punching SWAT teams who can't hurt me through my Fortitude and Prescence but can take enough of a beating that I have to chase them around punching them for way too long to be fun. If I didn't know I was close to the end I'd be done with this bullshit.

Played through Dear Esther because I noticed that there was a so-called 'Landmark Edition' available in my steam library. Last time I played this was over five years ago so it was a nice reminder. I like the soundtrack a lot and as a former Source engine mapper the sheer skill put into the design of the game is always impressive. It's a cool experience - arguably it's barely a game but who cares, that whole tired debate has been played out for far too many years.

At the Grand Masquerade in Dragon Age Inquisition and I feel like the game has come to an absolute halt. It was all action, and hacky slash and magic and shit before, now it's like DIPLOMACY TIME despite having to find an assassin in the mix. It's so fucking boring.

The thing is, the demo isnt anything like the full game. The demo is a very linear level whereas the full game is open world.

You know, this guy is usually a pain in my ass everytime I play thorugh DS3, but after looking up some videos I noticed a pattern. The people facing him dont fucking roll, so I tried it, just shield up making sure to stay close to him, taking out his ghost clones when i needed to and I beat him in one try with that strategy. The dragoncrest shield does wonders against him so you pretty much just have to watch your stamina bar.
Hes one of the 3 bosses in this game that give me trouble along with abyss watchers and soul of cinder, but abyss watchers i've got a handle on and now sulyvahn I know exactly how to make him my bitch. Soul of cinder though? no idea. I've only beaten him once by myself and i'm on my six or seventh playthrough, he always fucks me up. I've played through all 5 soulsborne games multiple times probably have at LEAST 200 hours in each game and somehow this guy wont give me a break, I am not excited to face him again but thats the only way im going to end this pyro/str character solo playthrough

Same. I had trouble with him in previous playthroughs but this time using the zweihander with carthus flame, i had no issues. Just dodge, strong attach, repeat. Or you could go this route, LOL: https://youtu.be/-t_OJllsF2s

Also, I had no issues with the abyss watchers this time around, with my first heavy weapon build. Basically same strat, and lining up multiple watchers, for a lot of damage quick and taking them out with a few swings.

I just got to the profaned capital. Fuck. I forgot how much of a pain in the ass this god damn maze is. My character is strong, but he'd be so much stronger if I could wielld a good greatshield. I'm getting close to STR requirements though.

Decided to get back into emulating games since I don't have any actual consoles. Currently playing Rising Zan: Samurai Gunman along with Fighting Force and Intelligent Qube, two of which I remember from the Playstation Jampack Vol. 2 demo disc; my family ended up buying Fighting Force when I was younger but we never got our hands on Intelligent Qube.

Rising Zan isn't bad so far, the button mashing events are a bitch on the emulator though. I have to go crazy on it to get a good execution score or dodge an obstacle.

Weird, I downloaded a bunch of PS1 games recently and started playing these two as well.

Rising Zan is neat. It's not the most polished game or anything, but I'd definitely call it ahead of its time in a few ways. It's a fun 3D beat 'em up with really entertaining voice acting and good set pieces. Plus the moveset is pretty huge, for the time. Also fairly intuitive to control, but the actual movement is a bit stiff. Either way, good game.

Intelligent Qube is just a great puzzle game. I also remember playing this and Fighting Force on a Jampack. Also it's weird to say but I love the main menu in that game. And dat music.

Finished Bloodborne for the second time, tying up loose ends and experimenting a little more with a new build. Couldn't fucking believe how much I had missed in my first run. Had an amazing time with that game. Got kind of sad that I've taken it as far as I really want to. Tried the Chalice dungeons out at the end of this play through just because I wanted more, but they weren't really doing anything for me. Will definitely be returning to this game somewhere down the line though, it's a keeper.

I'd say if you have the means and can comfortably get away with it then Bloodborne is worth buying a PS4 for. It really is that good. Hands down my favorite combat and level design of the past 5 years, at the very least. Amazing visuals, music, sound design, enemy designs, etc. Just everything. It's all satisfying as hell, meets the perfect level of intense difficulty while somehow dodging frustration for the most part, and it's just incredibly designed, really. Plus its story is as concealed and vague as you'd expect but is actually a bit easier to piece together than previous From games solely down to Bloodborne's tighter world scale.

But keep in mind that this is coming from someone that was never heavily into the Souls games. It's a series I've flirted with for years now but Bloodborne is the one that really clicked with me. I'm a big horror game fan and that aspect of it appeals more to me than the high, dark fantasy of previous games.

Its focus is largely on combat and exploration and personally I think that focus seems much tighter here than ever before. Its level design, shortcuts, and exploration feels a lot like Dark Souls but not nearly as open or branching. The world design here is just tighter. It certainly opens up to a number of branching paths, particularly mid-late game, but for all intents and purposes it is a more linear game than Dark Souls. Not to an insane degree, but more linear, regardless.

You don't have to worry all that much about your equipment or really have in mind what type of build you want from the beginning. There's still room for build experimentation and equipment does make a difference. What you ultimately end up with out of your build will assuredly feel different than a lot of other people's builds because it really is something that naturally builds on your play style, but Bloodborne's character building isn't nearly as in depth as Demon's or Dark, and the equipment selection is certainly smaller. But make no mistake it does offer plenty of depth.

All considered it's easily my favorite PS4 game by a mile. I could honestly go on for days regarding its quality and what makes it so good, or how I feel it's mechanically perfect for an action RPG, but I'll leave it at saying that it really is a must play.

I agree with this guy. I'm not gonna say as much but Bloodborne is my favorite game of all time, and it is so worth the 480 I spent to play it (400$ ps4 and 80$ collectors edition). Now I'm pretty sure a ps4 is like 250 anyways and Bloodborne (with dlc edition) is 20 or 30 bucks.

Go for it dude. That said, I'm the guy who owns every console just because but ps4 is my most used current gen.

Speaking of which I really need to pick that DLC up. I just bought the standard edition of the game used for super cheap. I'm glad that good DLC exists for a game like this. More Bloodborne cannot possibly be a bad thing. Can't wait to pick it up.

Curious though, how does the DLC work? Is it a selectable thing from the menu, the Hunter's Dream, or is it integrated into the world somehow? I don't wanna know anything else really, Bloodborne's story and lore has been one of my favorite things about the game and I'm excited to see what The Old Hunters adds to it.

I quite like this drang armor chest piece, with the nifty cape and furry shoulders. Provides decent armor without being too heavy
I've never really been one for fashion souls so once I find something that I think looks good I usually stick with it for the rest of the game, except some instances like earlier when I faced aldrich I swapped out my outfit for some more magic resistant armor


Also, since I'm at Profaned Capital, does anyone else find this area kind of terrible? Definitely my least favorite area of the game. Its just dark and bland even the boss is meh as fuck, plus it has that whole poison swamp thing which I always hate in these games. FromSoft just LOVES putting poisonous areas in their games. The one thing I do like about Profaned Capital is those hand-baby monster things, they're legitimately terrifying, hit hard, and take a ton of damage.

I played it on ps3, and I don't feel like I really missed out on anything. It's a genuine fun game. My only advice is that if you get stuck, don't just rage quit. Look up a video on youtube and see how someone else did it. Also, don't forget to use all the moves. There is a pretty diverse action mechanics system, and using all of it maximizes the experience.
For example, for the longest time I would have a lot of trouble dealing with shielded enemies. I didn't really learn until later that you can just kick them, and break their guard. Take advantage of pluging attacks, backstabs, and counter attacks whenever you can.

Fuck yeah for all the Souls talk ITT. I'm just now getting into these games, and man. Have I missed the boat or what.

I just beat Demon's Souls for the first time. Fucking great game, and a lesson in persistence. Had a much harder time with this than Bloodborne. I'd say the experiences are honestly about equal though. While Bloodborne is certainly a more polished game, and a much faster one, and while I personally like its themes more, I can't deny just how solid Demon's Souls was, and the spirit of both games are remarkably similar.

Beyond that, some truly epic and I hate using that word moments throughout this play through that I'll honestly never forget. STORM KING, YOU ARE THE BEST BOSS EVER. I don't even care that it was easier than other bosses, just SO GOOD ANYWAYS.

The Valley of Defilement can suck my dick though.

Anyway, gonna start Dark Souls tomorrow. I picked up a PS3 copy as a dirty console pleb and from what I've played the frame rate is trash, but I can live with it I guess. The combat in these games isn't exactly fast and it's not like DeS ran perfectly either.

Just here to echo what the other guy said, really. If you find yourself stuck, frustrated, or confused with mechanics, don't quit playing it. Like take a break or some shit but definitely come back to it. I wouldn't recommend looking up walkthroughs for these games since I think it's a hell of a lot more rewarding not to, but if you find the overall mechanics of the game (particularly any of the stat management stuff, not so much the combat) to be a little too obtuse then look up a beginner's guide, or something.

I haven't played Dark Souls for more than a few hours yet, but if I'm going by my experience with DeS, then there will be moments where you'll get frustrated, and there will be moments where you'll want to quit. But don't. Just based on my experiences with Bloodborne and DeS, I'm absolutely ready to call the Soulsborne games some of the absolute best of all time. They're worth sticking through the frustrating shit.

Picked the Bandit class and am going with a tanky build this time. Medium rolls.

>Picked the Bandit class and am going with a tanky build this time. Medium rolls.

Sounds like a build I'd probably try out, honestly. For Bloodborne I went with the Hunter's Axe, focused on STR, END, and VIT. Ended up being a good tank type build, since I relied a lot on the transformed, charged attacks.

For DeS I went with the Hunter class. Used mainly that class' starting axe to carry me through the game and it worked well. I'd switch to the Crescent Falchion or Demonbrandt for when it really called for those, and the Long Compound Bow was incredibly useful at a few points, but for the most part I focused on the same things for this build as I did for my build in Bloodborne, stats wise. Only real difference was pumping "unusual" stats every once in a while for certain weapons that called for them. Mainly dexterity and faith.

Cool thing about the Hunter class though is that he starts with really good endurance and light armor, and has a pretty great starting equip burden stat. So I was able to equip pretty much any weapon or combination of weapons and I think I only ended up with the medium roll at one point in the game. Rest of the time it was fast rolls.

I think if I go for another DeS build I'm gonna go for a tanky knight. The fast rolls are useful and all but I think I could get by with a good shield and medium rolls. There were definitely moments where I wished I had foregone the light armor for something a little heavier. To be honest I probably could have gotten away with it in the build I used, but ya know, getting my sea legs and all. Just stuck with what was working for me.

What a great fucking thread. I loved all this shit. I'll never forget how much it hurt to fail Intelligent Qube on the last level. But, mind you, the last level is literally one wave of Qubes. Like, instead of the Qubes coming at you a couple rows at a time, every single qube comes at you right away, and you need to play almost flawlessly or else you end up dead.

Literally the only thing left I have to do is beat both Nameless King and Soul of Cinder but neither of them wont stop bullying me. I've only beaten them once in my many playthroughs and that was my first time when I made it a point to beat every boss by myself and I'm doing the same now
With both the first phases are no problem I could do those in my sleep at this point its the aggressiveness of their second phases. Always had trouble with super aggressive bosses all the way back to Gwyn in the first game, they dont give you any breathing room!

Also, as much as I love the design of Archdragon Peak that area is just plain annoying.

Don't go for the Holy Blade, man. It's a fine weapon and can carry you through the game fairly easily but that's the problem. It's a little bit overpowered, plus I don't think its moveset is that interesting or satisfying.

If you've got interest in the Kirkhammer though, I'd say go whole hog for that and get a good strength build going. If you find you need a weapon that's a little more balanced to use as a backup, use the Hunter's Axe, or even the Tonitrus.

But hey do what you want, it's your build. Just throwing in my two cents.

And have fun, Bloodborne is fucking great.

That is NMS

It now looks better, has vehicles, and has base building (and you can visit other players' bases). But if you totally hated it on release it's probably still not the kind of game for you. If you were just slightly uncertain about it, you might love it now.

They also removed the framelock so my regular PS4 can run it at 30+ FPS (no way for me to check if it's at 60 or near 60 or whatever but holy shit it looks nice)

But surprise the whole game is kind of buggy recently. Discoveries aren't showing up for other people and such. Will hopefully be fixed with the next update though.

Despite that, hard not to respect HG for releasing game-changing, 100% free updates. Only other company that does that on console (except FTP games) is R* with GTA V, and they do that because of the microtransaction Shark Card model, they do it to make money. No microtransactions in NMS lol, they might make a little money from updates selling the game to new people, but mostly it must just be truly to improve their game.

Might and Magic II: Gates to Another World

This game is ridiculously hard. I thought SMT was hard but holy fucking shit. You finally think you're getting somewhere when you're able to explore the first town (exceptionally slowly) but then you run into a Crazed Dwarf, Insect Swarm, or group of Mad Peasants and get destroyed. I just tried to leave this one town for hours only to be stopped by Mad Peasants, upset that I burped, over and over before I realized beating them would be kind of impossible. You can't run from them either though and they are a step out of town. I got game overed by them before this too when I had lots of good loot on me. Sucks but I love this game, guess I need to grind.

Also the new Noam's Sky permaban mode was pretty cool. I always reload when I die in NMS so that mode seems perfect for me but I can't play anything till I beat MM2 which will take forever

Haven't played the first one yet ($40 used on Amazon ugh) but the music is probably my favorite part of it. Unique themes for every area, with songs building/diminishing according to what you do as the player like in Doom 2016: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7X3LbZAxRPE

There's a demo on PSN of the game's first level, which does an excellent job of introducing you to the rest of the game in terms of OST, mechanics, characters, and story themes. It's what sold me on the game months ago. Definitely check it out.

I rather enjoyed Mad Max. It wasn't great, but it was far from the sheer tedium and rote open world fuckery that Ubisoft shits out on a bi-weekly basis.

Currently playing Gravity Rush 2, and I gotta say it's disappointing compared to the first. Sidequests are tedious as hell, and it's sprinkled with forced stealth sections in a game that's completely not geared for stealth.

it's weird how stealth gameplay can either be one of the most interesting game genres, or an incredibly awkward forced one-off stealth mission. are there any non-stealth games with a good stealth mission? Everything I liked was focused on it like MGS Splinter Cell or Boktai. I think Boktai was the same team that did MGS actually, you even do the same wall knock that snake does. I guess Ocarina of TIme had a one off stealth section at the castle but it was short and simplistic. It served more as window dressing to your meeting with zelda than an actual challenge. any more and it would just be obnoxious though.

There were a couple stealth sections in the Metro series that I enjoyed. I also enjoyed a few in Wolfenstein: The New Order. The key is that those were both masterworks in the FPS genre so they even managed to nail the stealth aspect instead of forcing it to feel artificial and tacked-on.

About the worst stealth section I remember experiencing was the Pirate Base end-game sequence in Metroid: Zero Mission. It was frustrating as hell, as 2D sidescrolling stealth can be expected to be. I'm glad I played that one on an emulator, because without the abuse of savestates I probably would've just dumped the game then and there.

You just suck at Metroid.

Every section of MZM's stealth was specifically designed for an easy route and an optimal speedrunners route. If you couldn't even figure out how to use the easy route... sorry mate but I think you're one of those "Metroid by walkthrough" players.

The opposite, actually. I'm very good at Metroid, and the stealth section wasn't a Metroid game, which is why it threw me.

You have no power suit, no real weapon (the pistol only stuns), no equipment or abilities. It's just a boring, scripted stealth section where the only way to tell what route to take or when to move into the next area is completely trial and error and enemy route memorization.

Sorry bub, it was shit. It was completely out of place in a Metroid game, and there's no shame in save-state'ing that hot garbage. Also, I've never met a Metroid fan who thought that section was anything more than mediocre, so I'm doubting your credentials as well.

Also I think you've misunderstood the context of why I consider that stage frustrating. It's not hard to beat, it's boring and time consuming. As I said earlier, it's your typical low-effort trial-and-error stealth mechanics where you get jumped by some surprise pirate walking through a door, load your save, know he's there for the next time, get a little further, rinse and repeat. It was hot fuckin' garbage.

I didn't think it was that great of a sequence but I didn't outright hate it. I don't remember it taking too long either. The most memorable thing about it was the boss fight. The only real issue I had with it was that it was a little too straightforward. it becomes a more or less linear platformer, and a so-so one. I think it was must have been a quickly done job to show off the new zero suit samus design.

Overblown controversy, but it truly was a curveball to the gut. Unlike many, many people, I feel the game is very much Final Fantasy, and having that asshole of a dungeon near the end felt right at home. Still, to look at it a LITTLE objectively, it totally fucked the flow of the game, and probably made many people rate the game lower than they would have had they stopped JUST before getting to the chapter.

However I actually really love how Square is actively maintaining this game and keeping it interesting, with stuff like the Timed Quests. They really learned a lot from their MMOs and mobile games, and it's kind of cool to be part of a growing experience for a single player game.

Literally the worst part of the game until you got that ring that can blow people up.

In fact, that whole section was just a bore and after that, it went too fast in a sprint to the end. It didn't ruin what was otherwise a good game, but it was def not fun to play.

I don't know why people felt it wasn't a Final Fantasy. I don't care either, because whatever they think makes a definitive FF game, is probably their favorite one. Whatever game they enjoyed the least is a bad FF.

It wouldn't have felt like such a sprint to the end if most of the story wasn't cut for future DLC. That's why I intend to replay this game once I have all the episode packs.

I've been playing 21 in RE7 and I was on an absolute roll in Suvival+. I was on the seventh opponent without getting tortured once and I finagled a perfect hand by upping the target to 24 and swapping my cards for his and I cocked up and hit the "hit me" button instead of staying. I ended up with a score of 34 and of course he busted lower than me. He was primed to fry in one go and everything and I wasted all of my fucking trump cards getting there.

After that, I had zero heart to continue and let him kill me next round. So fucking pissed. That minigame's intense as fuck tho.

It most definitely was trial and error. There was often no indication of when enemies would enter an area on their routes until you saw them, which means you often had to get caught several times in order to know which route not to take. It was incredibly poorly designed stealth, I'm sorry you're not smart enough to be able to recognize that.

Also I don't see what your issue with emulators is, but your pedantry (and incorrect pedantry, to boot) on this subject has bored me, so I'm going to stop replying to you.

I decided to try out NieR: Automata despite never playing Drakengard or the first game. It's okay so far, but I definitely see the complaints that people are having with the PC version; I've had a handful of frame rate dips and crashes in just the first two hours.

My only issues so far besides the performance is that the graphics look pretty average even on high quality. I know that it's supposed to be a dystopian Earth, but the environments I've seen are very much lacking in color, with just different shades of brown and grey everywhere. Everything also looks washed out like someone just smudged Vaseline on the screen.

It seems like it's a good game, so I'll probably power on through it despite the performance issues.

Witcher 3 has incredible writing and excellent human/humanoid character graphics.

The combat is comparable to a free MMOJRPG like Onigiri. Not very good at all: lock on, attack (physical/spell), and dodge. If you need good combat and don't care about writing, Witcher 3 is probably the total opposite from the kind of game you'd enjoy.

Been playing through Skyrim Special Edition, having a lot of fun with it. I haven't touched this game since I put well over 200 hours into it back in 2012. Tried returning to it time and time again but just got bored a few hours in. Hell, I've had this copy sitting around here for a while. Glad I'm getting back into it now though. I can recognize that Elder Scrolls in general is kinda goofy and that Skyrim especially isn't that great an RPG in terms of mechanics, but I'll be damned if it's not a fun world to explore. I mean, it's all kind of a grind when you get down to it, but that's not inherently a bad thing.

Wanted to go for a knight build this time around. Real sword and board type. Just got my plate armor and I look like a nameless fucking idiot knight, it's great. I typically always play sneaky archers/assassin types in Elder Scrolls games, so a build like this is going a long way in making this game feel fresh again.

>It really bored me to tears, man.
That's the problem I had with Fallout 4, too. Everything was just so boring. Every NPC you talk to in Fallout 4 is the most boring NPC in Fallout 4. Even the world was uninteresting. It offers more visual variety than previous games once you start to get into it but everything feels far more manufactured. Like I'm not exploring a wasteland more than I am exploring a world littered with pointless set pieces. It feels like Bethesda had more fun placing mannequins and skeletons around than building an actual interesting world to experience. And don't get me fucking started on how stupid shit like Carhenge is.

And then there's the whole crafting system. Like, there's so much fucking junk scattered around to be picked up by the player, honestly far more than I recall in any of the previous Fallout games, and it's all there for crafting purposes. And I know that you can technically ignore all of the crafting in Fallout 4 if you wish, but no, you actually can't, because the game is constantly shoving supplies down your throat as "reward" for exploration and it's fucking nonsense. Like,

>hey, here's some duct tape and some screws and some glue for your troubles of clearing this area. Wanna build stuff yet?

NO motherfucker, just give me decent weapons and armor as a reward for exploration instead of forcing me to scavenge around a boring fucking map full of boring NPCs and sidequests for 20 hours to get anything fun at all. I don't want to build shit, that's not the type of character I want to play. I want to scavenge the land and find useful shit that offers itself to a fun gameplay loop, the likes of which Bethesda has established with its RPGs up to this point. The likes of which Fallout 4 just doesn't have. If you opt to ignore crafting in Fallout 4, the gameplay pacing is utterly broken. And all of this is to mention nothing of the shit writing, shit dialogue system, and shit leveling system.

It's not even the fact that Fallout 4 does things differently that bother me about it. If Bethesda wanted me to sometimes craft items and ammunition because it's made essential to do and felt useful I would be fine with it. I could adapt. But as it is, it isn't really useful since it can be entirely ignored. Its just there to make you feel good about building pointless shit. So getting back to the point, it's not because it's different that bothers me, it's the fact that what it does differently is so drastic, and they went so overboard with it all that it actively makes the stuff you've come to expect from a Bethesda RPG worse.

Hoo boy I had a lot more to say about this than I anticipated. I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir here, didn't mean to direct this post at you alone. But I'm sure someone's ready to explain to me how the way I feel about this game is wrong. Just ranting, really

Doom. What to say about Doom. It's perfect. It's everything I wanted. I really can't gush about it enough. Like many my age, Doom was my first real video game back in the day. I used to play it on an old 486 my dad cobbled together out of spare parts. Unlike Doom 3, which wasn't a terrible game but was a terrible Doom game, this newest iteration was nostalgia wrapped in a shiny new coat of paint that both respected it's forebear while simultaneously reaching forward into a new era. You really can't ask for more. The guys at id nailed it, and I am eternally grateful to Bethesda for giving them the opportunity to make this game a reality.

Resident Evil 7 was also a breath of fresh air. I had written off the Resident Evil franchise long ago but Capcom managed to bring it back into my circle. However, I'm not on the same bandwagon as some people who insist it's more like classic Resident Evil. It's really not. Other than the puzzle doors and backtracking there really isn't much of a similarity. Really it's more like Amnesia or Aliensolation but with a slight Resident Evil twist. But that's not a bad thing, and I've always been respectful of franchises that aren't afraid to try new genre's within their framework. My favorite part about RE7 is that even though it's more like modern horror games with similar mechanics, it's not difficult to play it not as a defenseless twit just struggling to survive, but rather you can totally bust through doors like a man on a mission and feed buckshot to everything within a two mile radius. Whereas most modern horror games work hard to make you feel useless, RE7 gives you the freedom to feel empowered. Once you get your hands on the shotgun, hillbillies better head for the hills because I'm coming fer ya boy and my barrel is 'a hankerin' fer that purty mouth.

Automata I can't comment on too much. I'm only like two hours in. Combat is fantastic, story seems only okay so far, but I hear it gets better. The world is kind of empty and the graphics are only acceptable, but it is a somewhat low budget JRPG so expecting FF15 might be overshooting your expectations. But it's not held back by these flaws and the combat and general game design are really in a league of their own. I love that you can actually "program" your character to tweak their abilities and this includes turning off vital game mechanics if you uninstall certain programs without reading the descriptions. Up to and including instant death for removing the program that keeps you...you know. Alive.

ESO is ESO. Take it or leave it.

Fallout 4 I'm playing with a myriad of environment mods like reGrowth and Grasslands that turn the Commonwealth in a more Last of Us style apocalypse where everything is green, overgrown, and alive. With mods to increase and add more passive critters wandering around so it feels more like a living world instead of a dead desert. It really changes the whole atmosphere of the game and I find myself proceeding around the Commonwealth at a much slower pace. Not only to marvel at the beauty of nature, but also because the thick brush makes it much harder to see incoming enemies. Which adds an element of fear and caution, especially if you're like me and you use a "realistic" damage mod where whomever gets the first shot off is usually the victor. Combining all this with other immersion mods and playing on survival so you have basic needs to contend with turns Fallout 4 into an entirely different game.I highly recommend it!

True as fuck.

And yeah I also loved Fallout 3 and NV. Was so excited with Fallout 4 the first time I played it, but it quickly just felt so shallow compared to both NV and Fallout 3 (which I think each do certain things better than the other but NV is best)

Now I just play No Man's Sky and Planetside 2 and a little Minecraft and Star Trek Online.

I was recommended a fighting game called Chaos Code on Steam and I actually kinda like it. The thing is that more than other games like it, there's little to like about the cast until you find the one you like. What I like most (and I had to read a guide on Steam to discover) is that it has infinite input buffer, meaning you can hold the buttons down forever and the input will go as soon as possible, so no more 1-frame links ever.

It's fun in the way Don't Starve is fun. You do your best, but the sad truth is that the world is only going to get more and more unhospitable and more hostile, and you will eventually die a horrible death.

PS4 game collection seems pitiful compared to PS3, which was pitiful compared to PS2.

I was at Best Buy a month or so ago and was just blown away by how unimpressive all the PS4 games looked. Sure there are a handful of noteworthy titles - Witcher 3, Fallout 4 (even though it sucks it's still worth playing), No Man's Sky (even though most of you disliked it at least it's not yet-another-FPS or sports game), Just Cause 3, as well as games which are well-developed but I just don't like, like Dark Souls and others. But the vast majority of games on the shelf, and I really mean VAST majority, were just shitty sports games or even shittier FPS's.

Compare this to PS3 which had BF3, Black Ops (I got tired of CoD but the editor was pretty revolutionary), GTA V (yeah PS4 has it too but it's not original), Red Dead: Redemption (really not convinced RDR2 will live up to RDR after R* pumps it full of Buffalo Card microtransactions), Red Faction: Guerrilla (fucking revolutionary game that just...died), From Dust, the first Playstation Minecraft, and more.

And PS2, of course, I probably don't even need to list, from San Andreas to Ratchet and Clank to Sly to tons of games I never even played because I was like 11 at the oldest (San Andreas in 4th grade, good times).

How is this game still so satisfying years later?
Playing it on PC with graphics and sound mods at 16:9 res makes the whole experience beautiful and refreshing. I've had a total Vice City relapse.
The original game is still great, but its not short of some flaws. Draw distance/shading issues, and some of the sounds were inexplicably quiet. I had to play around with the files to make the noise of the mini-uzi, drive-by gunshot, baseball bat/nightstick and floor-kick sound "beefier." The game has aged well on its own, but with a loyal fan base devoted to its betterment and contemporary compatibility, it's even greater. Using an Xinput mod to use a modern gamepad is also boss AF. I rebound the controls to aim and shoot with the triggers like the latest releases. So gratifying.

Vice City's sound across all releases besides the Xbox version is flat out bad. It's compressed all to shit.

But yeah, PC Vice City is still great if you get into modding for it. Even if it's just basic stuff to make the core experience better like the 16:9 correction, or better graphics in general. I'd really recommend looking into some of the retexture stuff out there, or swapping out the PC car models for the Xbox models, but there's also Vice Cry if your PC can handle it.

Also, look into different animation sets for Vice City. A few of them go a long way in making the game more presentable because Vice City's animations are largely goofy as fuck.

Hey! Ken Rosenberg here, Hey!

So I installed Vice Cry 1.8 and was truly impressed with the HD foliage and textures, but for some reason the .DLLs or .ASI files that came with it broke my Xinput mod and I couldn't use the controller. The mod looked great but I couldn't go without muh gamepad. Also it added an absurdly out-of-place abandoned ww2 bunker island off the coast of washington beach.

Enbseries, widescreenfix, Hd particle effects, Ginput, and maybe some HD menus/radar/icons is all you really need to bring the game up to a polished look.

Don't forget the Xbox car models! They look way better.

You could also do fun shit like replacing the Blistas with DeLoreans. It's not necessary but Vice City is just a fun game to play around with mods like this in. I know the HUD here is ugly, it's not my screen. Just grabbed it from Google.

I'd also recommend retexturing the roads, if you can find a texture pack you like enough for doing that.

There are a number of HD particle effects mods out there and some do things a bit better than others. For some reason Vice City doesn't handle uncompressed textures well at all and it likes to pixelate them horribly. This is really noticeable with smoke/sand effects some of the better headlight mods out there. It's best to just find a whole bunch of particle effects mods and then pick and choose what you want to use from each, then compile the stuff you like with TXD editor.

There was a really great looking sky mod out there that added some beautiful, realistic looking clouds and starry nights, but unfortunately every build I had found of it at the time (two years ago, maybe?) had one of the wrong textures in place for the night sky stuff and it ended up looking broken.

So I say keep messing around with it. Like you said Vice City doesn't actually require a ton to look presentable these days, it's just that there's a lot of fun stuff you can do with it.

I liked the other Legacy of Kain games so I played the first one that I had never tried before. I didn't really enjoy it. This game is very tedious, mostly due to really bad loading times that come up whenever you want to change between one of the 50 or so weapons/spells/items/shapeshifting forms you have. This is seriously the first time I ever played a game where I wished there had just been one basic sword so I never had to open up menus again. There is a story there, but I don't feel that the game does a very good job telling it, although the voice-acting is good.

I love this game but the loading time complaint is valid. It really slows things down.

Other than that I really do love the game though. The world, level design, visuals, voice acting, art style, etc. Most things about it I think are great. For its time it's definitely one of the better Zelda style games that's not actually Zelda.

But your complaints here are definitely founded. I think if you can accept the long load times though and you're not expecting a real deep story out of it then the game definitely does enough interesting things with this sort of formula to make it worth playing. Still my favorite LoK game.

I saw some people talking about Battle Brothers on Social Media™ and remembered I liked the early access version alright, so I decided to play a bit of that.

It's like a more focused Mount & Blade with some pretty nasty turn-based combat. Probably won't play a ton of it since one of the best things about M&B is rising through the ranks and becoming a warlord, whereas here you're limited to being a mercenary AFAICT. Plus the battle maps tend to be either flat plains, forests, or hills - no forts or buildings or anything like that so far - and I wish the world was a little more interactive. But it's a low budget indie game, what are you gonna do. Still a lot of fun and good at what it does for the most part.

Been playing Skyrim now that I have a rig that can run it and mods. I opted out of the Special Edition, seemed limiting.

The biggest changes have been SKYUI (no shit), Alternate Start, Frostfall, and SPERG. The new skill/perk system makes much more sense although it doesn't overhaul the combat really. Just makes the skill level more directly affect efficacy while perks augment your skills and buffs.

Also using Immersive Weapons and Armors and Unique Uniques for the variety, some kind of lighting/particle thing, and Climates of Tamriel.

I'm liking this combination and i've encountered only a few crashes probably due to the weather mod.

Any mod recs to make the experience more fun? I don't care about followers or Realistic Anime Titties

At this point, experiencing everything the mods scene has to offer is the best way of going about it. Each person kinda plays their own Skyrim so experiment and see whats works for you.

Personally i enjoyed having the followers on Skyrim. I install all i can get my hands on and the trick was to also install a mods that lets followers die. It makes it more immersive. Im more careful when it gets to getting my self in sketchy situations and i have to work with my followers rather than just have them hang around soaking up damage. Some of the modders who make these followers put a lot of effort into making them likable so it feels like there is a lot of content there. Skyrim has pretty shitty writing and the followers balance it out. You should check it out, it made playing Skyrim more fun for me and added a couple of hundred hours of playtime.

There are a couple mods that don't drastically change Skyrim, but make it a ton more immersive:

>Hypothermia
You now have to stay warm to survive by wearing warm clothes, using campfires and staying dry.
http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/6745/?

>Audio Overhaul
Makes the audio way better and adds little things like people talking inside, dogs barking far away to make towns, villages, bars and settlements more lively.
http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/43773/?

>Realistic Ragdolls
Adds more weight to character models, so that they fall more believably when they die.
http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/601/?

>Texture and mesh mods
These are pretty standard, but texture and mesh mods make the game look a bit better as well.
http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/607/?
http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/8655/?
http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/60/?

Hope this helps. Fuck I gotta play Skyrim.

Playing a lot of Squad lately. This weekend it's free to play and 50% off, so if you enjoy games like Red Orchestra, Insurgency, ARMA and Project Reality, I encourage you to check it out.

Game just received another substantial update this past week including the first urban map, Al Basrah (based on a PR map, I believe) which is excellent, plus a handful of nice QoL improvements.

The game itself is solid but the community really makes the experience shine. Pretty much everyone uses mics and there is a ton of coordination and willingness to help new players. Lots of "fuck yeah" moments and proxy voice chat hilarity.

This is a fucking cool game. You've got tight controls, big good looking sprites and a story that only half makes sense about elves and space and shit. Half makes sense? Lets admit, it makes no sense. But the game is fun. It’s a fairly standard hop and shoot platformer with a nice twist. The closer you get to death the stronger your attacks get. And that means you'll have a better chance at taking out bosses and everything else as you get near that death moement.

Its got a groovin soundtrack and a decent amount of levels. The biggest problem I ran into is that my emulator decided to display a whole set of levels as a godamned mess of glitches. I managed to fight through, but fuck was that strange. But hey, this is a nice plat-former that never made it to the us that’s well worth a look. Be prepared to die, a lot. But not megaman a lot. Also there's a cool boss fight after the credits. This was fucking groovy good 4 or 5 hours and I had a lot of fun.

Contrary to popular belief (which I see you subscribe to), you don't have to scream "ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS? THIS IS BULLSHIT YOU FUCKING jolly african-american" into the mic everytime you die to be considered good.

Battlefield 3

Translate that into GTA V, the only other PVP game I really play, and killing other pilots in dogfights is comparable to swatting insects.

Haven't really cared to git gud on PS4 since that requires PS+ and I'm a broke ass bitch. No Man's Sky and Planetside 2 for me, although I'm decent at Planetside 2, I'm not "better than everyone else" like other games.

The games you described don't require mics because they are mindless shooters with over simplified game direction, balancing to the extent where even shitty players can sometimes get a lot of kills by sheer luck and require no tactics other then sit in a corner and shoot at people as they run by.

Two completely different genres that cant even be compared in those terms none of them are competitive as well, honestly feel bad for how oblivious you are.

Continuing with my LoK nostalgia run...

I had fun while playing Soul Reaver 1, but I don't know that I would actually recommend it to anyone who's never played these games before. I had thought that the strength of the series was its story/characters/voice work but not a whole lot actually happens in this game in terms of plot. Also it's up there with Halo 2 when it comes to anti-climactic endings.

The camera is terrible but the game is pretty forgiving in terms of difficulty so I think this game is still plenty playable. There's lots of hidden power-ups and even some entire areas that are purely optional, but I don't think any of them are needed to get through the game. Personally, I don't think I would have found any of the spells without looking at a guide.

The only other point I feel strongly enough about to mention is that I liked the monster designs in this game.

If you're playing objective based team games you should be using a mic.

I'm sorry the people you've played with in the past hurt you, but not everybody is obnoxious in voice chat and a player who is using voice chat sensibly is absolutely better than someone who doesn't.

If you're playing Project Reality or something, of course I agree. Doesn't change the fact that a lot of people just don't like using mics while playing video games, which is all I ever said to TRIGGER everyone here.

But the games I play, Battlefield 3 or GTA V? A mic will make a negligible difference unless you have a dedicated squad to play with, randoms suck and will almost never play tactically. Planetside 2 a mic could be valuable for sure, but I tend to just go lone wolf with a knife (I have a 1.87 K/D and 1,600 kills with my activated knife... Compared to my crossbow, my second best weapon, with only 600).

Playing Stellaris and the mid-to-late game wars just make it unplayable to me. Engaging in war has such a ridiculous amount of micro-managing that it renders the entire endeavor infuriating.

It's not so bad when it's one one one, but by mid-game everyone and their grandmother has defensive pacts or federations so you're always having to fight on a dozen different fronts. And moving around the several dozen different fleets and troop transports you have to use all one at a time and all individually, which you then have to watch closely once they get where they need to be in case something goes awry, is an exercise in futility.

And you can't just send fleet>attack to fight a war. Oh no, you have to destroy everything in a system, make it safe for troops, send troops in and hope they don't get destroyed along the way because they're made out of tissue paper, defend them with a fleet while they invade a planet, then leave them there to keep your warscore up which means you have to have or make more troops because the previous troops are now unusable, so you have to manage dozens of troops across dozens of planets with dozens of backup fleets. It's insane.

On top of all that micro-managing, you can destroy an enemies entire goddamn military and lay siege to their homeworld until it's little more than a ball of radioactive cinders and this moves the percentage warscore maybe one fucking percent. You can literally nuke them back into the dark ages and the game considers this a minor victory and forces you to keep taking potshots at their random tiny fleets they generate in the meantime to keep jacking up that warscore percentage.

I'm sure there's some autistic spergs out there that find this level of micro-managing enjoyable. But goddamn I hope I never have to meet one of them because you'd have to be the most insufferable person alive to find this shit fun. So now I'm stuck with an otherwise great 4X game that I can only stand to play for a few hours before the enjoyment curve drops off a cliff and renders it unplayable to me.

It's because of the sheer number of civilizations and their subsequent troops/planets/fleets that are in play.

So say you declare war to take a planet from one species. They'll call in ten other species to help defend them. So even if you take all the initial species planets (including the one you wanted, which doesn't count as anything special toward victory conditions, because reasons), reduce their fleets to scrap, and commit genocide against their population until they are on the verge of extinction, that still only accounts for like 10% of the total combatants involved in the war. Meaning to do something as simple as take ONE planet, you basically have to wage interstellar war against a dozen empires simultaneously. It makes war kind of not worth the effort. Which is either politics in games where it doesn't fucking belong, or the developers are dumb as shit.

Now, the enemy civilizations do have the option to surrender, and will sometimes. But it's a only a small chance whether they do and if they refuse to cede that fucking planet you're after you can end up being forced by gameplay to wipe out the population of the entire fucking galaxy to end the war for one fucking planet. It's just mind-boggling that they thought that was a good idea. Keep in mind this ponly applies to mid to late game, after all the different civilizations have settled into their allied nations and defensive pacts. It's those fucking diplomacy alliances that cock it all up and cause this nonsense.

It wouldn't so bad if there was just a way to get rid of defensive pacts. Like I said, it's the alliances that spider-web out across the dozens of empires that make mid-to-late game wars unmanageable. Because you can't start a war, even a small one just for a goddamn mineral mine, without taking on every other empire in the galaxy at the same time. Which can number in the 50's or higher depending on what settings you use in regards to galaxy size. I've even played games that had 70 empires by mid-game due to "primitives" discovering FTL and joining the map as an empire of their own. And I can't seem to find an easy way to disable defensive pacts to keep these mega-wars from firing off every time I piss off some random backwater world.

So you've got two options. Either play on a tiny tiny map with only two or three empires, which kind of defeats the purpose of playing a galactic 4X game. Or quit playing around mid-game when all the different species technology catches up to a certain level that allows galaxy-wide diplomacy. Either way you can't really play what the game as advertised.

Marathon'd through the first Zone of the Enders in a single sitting last night. Went in blind, played on hard, tried not to use any walkthroughs but I broke down at one point and looked at one. If you've played the game I'm sure you know the moment I'm talking about.

Anyway it's a great game. I fuckin loved it, even if it's a game with some real problems. There's some serious padding going on and the signposting isn't anywhere near as clear as it probably should be (glad I wasn't alone and found this to be a common complaint when reading up on the game later on), and I really wanted to like Leo but the little bastard makes it impossible to like him, at points.

But beyond that, fucking JEHUTY is the coolest mech ever. The story itself can honestly be really interesting despite feeling rushed with a wonky localization/voice acting. The world building is neat and the universe this takes place in just nails the future sci-fi stuff so well. Combat is quick and satisfying. It's almost a surprise that they bothered to add as much depth to it as they did, with combat encounters sort of acting like JRPG encounters you can choose to avoid, the leveling system, and holy shit this game has the best application of subweapons ever. And even though the game is padded with backtracking, I actually like the way backtracking works here, in a lot of ways. It just isn't necessarily used to its full potential or built around very interesting things to do.

There's just so much to like about ZOE if you look past the middling stuff. You look at stuff like the insanely low number of enemy types, the backtracking, the voice acting, etc., and some of these things really fucking suck. But then the game makes up for it for being really fucking awesome and offering some incredibly memorable story beats and just a really solid world design and that surprising amount of depth. There are just these little touches throughout the game that make it something kind of special. And did I fucking mention Jehuty is the dopest shit ever.

Still haven't played the second game yet but I know it's supposed to be one of the GOAT. I know people generally say to skip the first and go straight to The 2nd Runner, but I just couldn't bring myself to start a series with the second game. I'm one of those fucks. Will definitely be picking it up on payday though. Despite its problems the first ZOE left a pretty big impression on me and I can't wait to experience everything they fixed and improved on with The 2nd Runner.

Just beat Resident Evil 7. Man, Capcom really knocked it out of the park on this one. I checked out of the series after RE5 was so bland and forgettable, and then hearing RE6 was garbage further solidified my decision to write off the franchise. But RE7 was getting good reviews so I decided to give them one more shot and they didn't disappoint.

My only complaint is that the boss fights were kind of frustrating. They all take place is very small spaces, you have no room to move, the enemy is always faster than you and can kill you in a couple of hits. So your only strategy really is to do the fight over and over and over until you get lucky. This is especially aggravating during the Marguerite fight, as she can pop out suddenly literally anywhere in the arena with absolutely no warning and you can't do jack shit to dodge her. So it becomes a cat and mouse game of Get Hit>Run>Heal>Take Potshots When Able. Not my idea of a well designed boss fight.

Other than that though everything else about the game is phenomenal. The atmosphere, the graphics, the way the plot unfolds slowly and fills you with an overwhelming sense of dread and uncertainty only to then ramp up in the final hours. It was exhilarating and I came away feeling incredibly satisfied as those credits rolled.

I also loved how (very minor spoilers) the haunted house and Baker Family parts are only about half the game, and after a certain point the game throws you into a more action-oriented scenario that is more reminiscent of the more recent RE games. It was just an all-around great way to both return to tradition while melding it with the modern idea of a Resident Evil game.

I highly recommend this game. And if you're like me and used to love Resident Evil but called it quits after their string of flops, then I guarantee RE7 will rekindle your love.

This game has been a lot better than I expected, considering a lot of the hate that I've heard of it getting from long time fans.
I thought the plot was kinda cliche, and the dialogue options could have had more options, but it's still a vast Fallout game with fun action and a new story. For me, basically having a whole new area to explore, and kill everyone or talk my way through it is enough for me. If that makes me a charlatan, so be it. It's cool with me, I'm having fun.

Yeah I never really thought F4 deserved the hate. Some things annoy me like the removal of the karma system and just the general dumbing down of the RPG elements but as far as open world shooters go and not open world rpg shooters its a pretty damn great game that you can sink tons of hours into, then you start survival mode and you're like holy shit this is a completely new and different game.
I haven't even started any of the DLC yet, I bought Far Harbor awhile ago but completely forgot because I got sucked into survival
Lets face it, Fallout 3 and NV had very shitty gunplay and F4 has really great fun gunplay. If Fallout 5 kept the rpg elements from 3 and NV and kept the gunplay from F4 it would probably come out a near perfect game as long as the story wasn't too bad

Man, I love that feeling. I wish there were more games I could return to that I barely remember like that, but I think I've pretty much exhausted them all at this point. Last game like that I played through was Dead Rising 1 and I had a fucking blast with it. Was surprised about how much I had forgot about that game. Guess a lot changes in 11 years.

Definitely go back to ZoE though. It's honestly a game that holds up much better than you might expect thanks to some really clever and fun moments built around an already solid combat system and foundation, but the problems it always had are still there.

Finishing up Dark Souls 2 NG+ run. IDK if I'm gonna finish it actually, I always lose steam once I get to the final bosses.

I'm thinking about downloading Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen. I hear it's like Dark Souls and Skyrim, two games I enjoy. I've watched some gameplay and the only thing really holding me back is that the enemies look like sponges. I don't like the idea of slicing a normal human being 10 times before they die. If it's a giant monster, fine, but some twerp should go down like butter.

I have finally started enjoying Witcher 3

Turns out I just had to stop using the lock-on feature during combat. Now it's more fun and doesn't feel like God of War / JMMORPG combat. It feels like Assassin's Creed combat but less fluid, but whatever, the combat isn't the game's main draw and at least it's tolerable now and slightly fun.

Man i finished that game three times including the highest difficulty and i had no idea. I liked the the magic aspect of the game, it gives you an advantage and its great for crowd control.

At least on PS4 there is yeah, can't imagine it's different on PC. Unfortunately it doesn't let you lock on to the only thing I'd ever WANT to lock on to, those explosive barrels, to make sure I hit them with Igni.

I feel like I'm going to go with Magic and Heavy Attacks. I tend to use magic, then dodge-attack-dodge-attack while the magic recharges. Of course I'm just starting so idk if that will remain a viable strategy but it seems like it will, at least for regular enemies, maybe not for "bosses"

I don't even have the crossbow unlocked lol. Leveling seems really slow in this game, like I'm level 2, the next recommended level for the main story is Level 3, and I have Treasure Hunts for 4 and 6. It's taking me forever to get to 3, can't imagine 6. Is there something I'm missing? Mostly just going around to "?" markers, killing bandits and ghouls, and doing the rare missions I can stumble across.

There may be a lock on feature but I never use it because it's fucking stupid when you fight a crowd. But there are times when suddenly Geralt lunges at an enemy way out of range instead of the guy you meant to hit right next to you.

That cross bow is only good against flying monsters because it grounds them but the dmg is pathetic even with special limited ammo bolts.

I guess I'm the only one bothered by the fact that he wasn't even an active separatist or sith apprentice during the actual Clone Wars. He was either dead or off doing is own thing by the time the actual wars broke out and would only canonically fit as a droid general during the trade federation dispute on Naboo and even then he was just an assassin, not in a full on front lines kind of role.

Glad to see their bringing back the prequel era though. Hope you can mix and match eras and maps.

I only played the beta of the first one and got my fill pretty quickly. They somehow made an already arcadey game more arcadey.

From what I understand the faces turn out that way thanks to the type of motion capture used, assuming this game is using facial mo-cap. It was definitely the case for ME:A though. Basically the cheap and easier way of doing it involves having the mo-cap camera coming off of the actor's chin and facing up, leading to this big nose looking ugly fucks and overall wonky, round facial proportions. The way to do it that yields better results has the mo-cap camera coming down from the actor's forehead but this is more expensive to do and means you have to work with blind actors that hate working that way.

If you don't mind titles that are cutscene delivery devices as much as they are games you might like Soul Reaver 2. I say 'might like' because while I enjoyed playing through the puzzle-centric parts of the game, the shallow combat mechanics let the game down. At first, I thought the combat was a little limited but good enough to break up the puzzle and story sequences, but soon I was thinking "Holy fuck, there's a lot of enemies in this game and absolutely no reason to kill 90% of them", and after that I decided to just run past them when it was possible to do so. Some of the later enemies are kind of challenging, but maybe I just suck at this game. As an example of how much of an afterthought the combat is in this game, all of the game's upgrades add an element to the eponymous Soul Reaver. Despite modifying your weapon, none of these upgrades seem to change up combat in any way, they are used only to solve puzzles and open doors and stuff.

Given that the gameplay is completely unremarkable, the amount you like this game will hinge entirely upon how much you like the genre of "time-traveling vampire fantasy that takes itself completely seriously". The voice acting is a high point like it was in Blood Omen and Soul Reaver 1, but in contrast to those games more characters besides Raziel and Kain get a chance to go beyond telling the player to, "Go to location X and do Y," or, "Rarr! I'm gonna kill you now!" In particular, I got a kick out of watching Moebius vacillate between cowering old man and smug son-of-a-bitch depending on whether Raziel was paying attention or not. Disappointingly, just like SR1, the game just kind of ends without really resolving anything.

The "Commanders" update (2.3) finally released today for Elite Dangerous.

The most obvious stuff is a new camera suite, Multicrew (multiple players on one ship) as well as an actual character creator (fucking finally). Aside from that just some QoL improvements and more variety added to starbases, ships, etc.

Pic related. My Commander, flying an Imperial Courier (a type of heavy fighter) about to valiantly battle against some dirty Federal Dogs in the name of our glorious Princess. Long live the Empire!

I thought the Asp had two seats (the second being on the deck below the pilot) But, man, if yer taking an Asp up against say, a battle-ready Anaconda/Corvette/Cutter that has multicrew active, the results would be more or less the same anyway. Besides the Asp wasn't designed for protracted heavy combat, regardless.

Multicrew basically gives a Gunner and a Fighter pilot (if your ship can launch fighters) The Gunner can only control turreted weapons, missiles/torpedoes, and utilities such as chaff/ECM.

Actually I just checked, they added a second chair to the Asp to make it multicrew compatible.

Here's the changelog for ships.

• Added Multi-Crew cameras to supported ships
• Upgraded cockpits for Multi-Crew
  • Adder (upgraded second chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Anaconda (upgraded second and third chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Asp (added second chair for Multi-Crew)

  • Beluga (upgraded second and third chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Cobra MkIII (upgraded second chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Cobra MkIV (upgraded second chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Imperial Clipper (upgraded second chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Corvette (upgraded second and third chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Federal Dropship (upgraded second chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Federal Assault (upgraded second chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Federal Gunship (upgraded second chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Fer de Lance (upgraded second chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Orca (upgraded second chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Cutter (upgraded second and third chair for Multi-Crew)
  • Type 9 (upgraded second and third chair for Multi-Crew)

Had this game since Christmas but didn't really get into it for some reason.
But I finally picked it up again and holy shit I love it. It's like all the best parts from the original and Human Revolution combined into one game. I just wish Prague wasn't the main hub area.

But the new augs are cool, and the new gun modding stuff is neat, love that multitools are back, and seeing the original Illuminati all HD and young was cool too. DeBeers, Duclaire, the black guy whose name I always forget, and of course PAGR.

The world is also very immersion, I'm impressed. Definitely gonna play the shit out of this and probably the original, invisible war, and HR soon after. Maybe MD's New Game Plus too lol.

The game is good but Square enix cut out a big portion of the game including the ending to be sold later as DLC, but later decided to do that since the game sold badly. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot. Its a weird game, you have all these new mods and skills but never find yourself in a position where you need them. They are so cool, but you can breeze through the entire game on sneak mode. Sometimes id just turn on titan mode just to look at it and wonder what could have been. Last time i preorder a game from SE thats for sure.

Oh. I had heard that, but I don't think I ever saw anything about them removing the ENDING to the game and selling it as DLC.
In fact, the only two story DLCs seem rather inconsequential to the story. The one with Pritchard where you repay the favor you owe him, and the other one that's a prequel to the game where you play through Adam's first mission with TF29.

Got Dragon's Dogma: DA and spent about 8 hours between the past two days. I'm just now finally getting out of the starting gate. Game is fun, I dig it. I'm surprised in all the comparisons that have been made, I never heard The Witcher; it's most like that.

Enemies are a fucking grind, but you get 3 followers, so I can see why they did that. Thing is... Shit is way too chaotic with 3 followers, so I've just been rocking my main pawn. It's gonna me and her vs the whole world. I'm sure I will die plenty. In fact, she just died. And because it's nighttime, enemies are everywhere and I can't run back to the encampment to respawn her. So I'm just chilling on a rock waiting for morning to come, while Quina gets gang raped by ghosts.

On my 4th playthrough of Killer 7. It always re-affirms its place among my favorite games ever. The lush visuals, the awesome sound design, the absolute bat-shit fucking crazy plot and set-pieces God bless ol' severed head Susie They all just take me to this wonderfully brooding and yet satisfying head-space.

It's a tough nut for a lot of people, and the combat and puzzling leave a lot to be desired. But it took the risks that one expects when you're on the cutting edge, and I will always come back to it for that 800mg DPH nightmare of intrigue and violence it provides, one that I've seen no other game come close to yet.

There are no routes in Nekopara, you read it like a book and sleep with everyone. Shigure will probably happen in the third game but it got delayed since Sayori got sick this month so we'll have to wait a little longer to find out.

Maple had a guitar in the trailer!!! I'm really excited for this game. I'm kinda hoping for a big scene with all the nekos in one beautiful nyan nyan cuddle.

Also, I was thinking about it lately and is the adult version still even legal? I don't know how these things line up and man do I love this VN series...

My favorite thing about Killer 7 is just how contradictory it is. Like it takes it to fucking extremes. From its general design to its story, nothing about it should work at all, and it KNOWS this, but it doesn't give a shit, and somehow it does work.

Or the fact that it's like, "hey, let's make an on-rails shooter... except you can go wherever you want, really, and it's actually an adventure game." Or just how simultaneously concise and all over the goddamn place the entire experience feels. Essential game.

>My favorite thing about Killer 7 is just how contradictory it is
Truth my whole world-view and aesthetic tastes are based on contradiction, it's a craving that this game fulfills like no other.

The whole narrative of the game is obscured and the only clues to what's going on are based on conflicting experiences and encounters with the un-real. (This is something I love about the lore of TES, particularly in Morrowind)

The result can be really dense, but the puzzle of it's story is probably what makes me come back over and over.

If you like Un Chien Andalou, you'd probably enjoy Killer 78

>GTA Online cunts

It really bums me out that GTA Online got inftested with dickbags. When I first got it it was the greatest thing I'd ever played. For about a week. Until all the assholes finally got on my last nerve and I haven't touched it since. It reminds me of DayZ. It had the potential to be one of the greatest online gaming experiences ever made, but idiots ruin it by ignoring all the great mechanics in favor of turning it into just another deathmatch shooter.

I just hate the fact that seemingly 90% of races I get into their tactic is spin to win. that is, spin the other fucking car to win. Its to a point where i'm amazed when I'm battling for first place with another car and they DONT try to spin me out. Really sucks because the racing in this game is super fun, and now the additional stunt races and special car races make it even more fun but the player base is so discouraging and cancerous
On a similar note, what the fuck is up with joining a lobby and theres ALWAYS some fucker blasting their music over the mic? They don't even communicate with anyone, its just music, why even have your mic plugged in, what the fuck are you doing. I shouldn't have to start a private party just so I don't have to listen to the bullshit you're broadcasting to the whole chat
I don't have this problem with any other online game I play, and when I do encounter it in those games its very rare and the people are usually talking to the team while also listening to their music, so at least they do that.

That's the whole problem I have with the game. By protecting yourself, you mean buy one of those tank things. That's all the game ever was for me in free roam, some people having fun until a party rolls up killing people over and over with that thing. That and the shooting seems like it took a step back. I don't expect and open world game to have top notch shooting but Red Dead's was surprisingly decent. There isn't even a hardcore server on GTA with free aim like Red Dead because they knew how bad the shooting was. Roll and lock on. As for the cunts, it's one of the biggest game on the planet, it's not to be unexpected IMO.

With all that said, they have added a shit load of stuff since I last played. The drug dealing stuff seemed cool and the ridiculous races SEEM like a fun distraction. How's the Tron stuff?

I liked in red dead how on hardcore servers your dot didn't show on the map until you fired your gun or sprinted I think. In gta5 its just a never ending death match and you both see eachother on the map and it respawns you about 50 feet from eachother.

Also I enjoy the shooting more in gta 4 by far. You could actually fucking crouch and you were semi slow whilst aiming.

lol I forgot all about the "crouching" in GTA5. I know we get hyperbolic on here but straight up, who the fuck thought that was a good idea? It blows my mind that mechanic is in the game. Who does this help?! I remember seeing footage of the game before it came out. The part where Trevor is on the plane shooting on his back made me think we might get a less polished Max Payne 3 system minus the diving and bullet time... How wrong I was.

Was that dot thing only on hardcore servers? I remember that just being a thing in RD at least in death matches. Fuck, another thing I miss about RD. I honestly forgot about that until you mentioned it.

Cover system is better in GTA V though, by far. Roll-dodging into cover is cheap and useful.

GTA IV also had better vehicle deformation (you can smash a 10-wheeler into a car wedged into a solid object in GTA and mostly you'll just break the glass and bounce off of it, whereas GTA 4 seriously deformed its frame and wheel alignment), but GTA V has better driving

After putting it off for over two years now because I'm a colossal faggot, I'm getting into Trails of Cold Steel. There was no reason for me putting the game off for so long considering it has everything I love about JRPGs. Even being screwed by the RNG and having the main character get KO'd by the boss, only to have said boss die to a burn ailment so he's a level behind everyone else now and that's going to be bothering me.

It's a bit hard getting used to a classic turn-based system though after playing stuff like Tales and Kingdom Hearts for the longest time.

I forgot to mention this is downloading on PS4. So while 7mbps isn't terrible (it's not fuckin great either) PSN seems to bottleneck download speed. It's more dependent on their end, not mine. Despite reading anywhere from 6.5mbps to 7mbps, in actuality downloads on PSN tend to stay at ~1mbps or less. So 80gbs is gonna take at least all day and night.

The crafting system in Dragon's Dogma is my least favorite aspect and ruins the pace of the game. Shit is giving me a headache. 95% of this shit I'm never going to use or care about. I had the same problem with the Witcher... All I needed was healing and curing items, everything else be damned. In this game, almost everything I need can be bought from the apothecary... Except matured greenwarish, which means I've got to stop the flow of the game, and start pouring over the hundred ingredients and materials I've gathered, and it just fucking sucks. Lemme buy that shit, I'll pay 600 gold per item, I don't give a shit, just stop making me craft things.

I'm really enjoying Cold Steel, but I have to say you could really tell that this was Falcom's first PS3 game. To make things worse, it's basically an early PS3 game/late PS2 game. And the technical issues, like running into my first freeze almost twenty hours in. Still, despite all its issue you can still tell that a lot of work went into it to make it enjoyable. I hope the PC port that's going to be released fixes the freezing issue.

Man, Final Fantasy 8 really didnt age well. There's just so much wrong with this game. The pacing, that broken junction system, the boring and inspired setting. The romantic story which is supposed to be the main draw of the game is stale. There is no chemistry between Squall and Rinoa. She's a spoiled princess who spends the majority of the first and second cd either clashing with Squall’s personality or laughing at him. Squall doesn't show any interest in anything she says thinks or does for the majority of the game and tries to avoid her. It's only in the third cd where he has an existential crisis and latches on to the closest thing to him to validate his existence when he starts to care.
Quistis should've been the heroine of the story. It would've made way more sense. They had more romantic scenes together and they understood each other.Quistis never stopped trying to make Squall understand how she felt about everything about her, including her feelings towards him. Its kind of depressing actually. I'll probably just finish the game and never play it again. For now I'm just trying to figure out what made me like the game so much to begin with.

Finally got around to playing Witcher 3. Tried it on PS4 back when it first launched but I hated that I was forced to play as Geralt. Customizable RPG characters have spoiled me too much, so I just couldn't get into it. But I picked it up on Steam specifically just so I could mod Geralt, and after having done so I'm having a blast.

Used a combination of "Young Geralt" mod, and a mod that changes hair color to give him black hair and another mod to give him blue normal human eyes. Pic related, but with black hair and blue eyes with normal pupils. Not exactly ideal as far as making my own character is concerned, but just getting to change him a little gave me enough control back to be able to enjoy the game the way I like.

When it's all said and done, ME:A looks passable. It doesn't look like a bad game but I honestly don't really see any need to go out of my way to play it. I'm not gonna hate on it but it's just kinda hard to really defend it from its most rabid haters. It's really hard because I really did love the entire series at one point but I just got burnt out during the ending drama. Sure the hold the line thing was kinda embarrassing but Bioware's response during the initial heat made me realize they didn't really give a shit. And the issues with the animations, even if it wasn't entirely gamebreaking, just further proved that.

It's like seeing something you used to care about so much be in a sorry state, and seeing them again and hoping that they've learned their lesson, only to find them making the same mistakes again. What else can you do but move on?

i dont know what the fuck they were doing that took so goddamn long they had to get some random romanian company to do them but judging by how fast they got the patch out to fix it, it seems like they got them back, went "jesus fucking christ did your dogs literally make these" and then immediately started on the patches.

After an unfortunate encounter with a spore cloud, I developed a fungal growth on my left hand. Eventually it spread to my other hand. I couldn't even use the weapons I had been training to use. I haven't found anything yet that can remove the fungus, so I started training in cudgel, deciding to make the best of my hideous growths. It's actually turning out to be quite useful. This run has been my longest to date.

The growth has now spread to my body, and I have a couple outcroppings which grow fungus that I can eat, giving me certain beneficial effects. Luckily one of the infections is luminous, so I don't have to worry about carrying a torch into the deep dungeons. Also, when attacked, I release a cloud of spores that damages enemies, and has actually saved my ass a few times.

On an unrelated note, I found a device that can give inanimate objects consciousness. I used it on a table. It walks around a bit, and all it says when I try to talk to it is, "What am I?". I haven't tried putting anything in it yet. Not sure if it'd be happy with me storing things inside it.

Like Frosty said, buy that shit if you can. It's an awesome little game.

I'm a little worried now though. The fungus spread to my tongue, which caused it to bleed constantly until the tongue fell off. I almost got killed in a fight and used an injector I had. It made my tongue grow back, and then it promptly fell off again after the effects wore off. Not sure where it'll spread to next.

After levelling up a few times and getting more abilities in the cudgel skill, my fungi fists pretty much perma-stun enemies now. It's only really useful against one enemy at a time, but I've killed some tough enemies that way.

Also SDVX is great on hallucinogens, watch a few videos of people playing and you can probably see why. GIves you tunnel vision that focuses on the highway, and the "tunnel" bleeds into the room due to how it moves towards you at all times.

And man, when you do a knob turn to the right or left, it feels like you are in a fighter jet of music haha

It was on my wishlist.
It's called Thumper. And actually watching more gameplay, idk if I'd be able to handle it. Sensory overload lol.

Oh yeah that game, I've actually played Thumper and it's pretty cool. Kinda reminds me of audiosurf but with a lot more trippy backgrounds and effects.

Thing I didn't like about it was that it's not exactly "you vs notes" but more so "you vs screen effects" since they tend to blend with the "notes". But I like how you are "part" of the music and you jumping and sliding creates the effects in the song.

Started playing The Witcher on a whim when I had a 4 day weekend. Almost a bad thing cuz I got way into it and played an obscene amount. I'm currently getting the Salamandra out of the swamp in chapter 3 (or 4? Can't remember) but holy shit I love this game and can't wait to play the rest of the series. There's just so much density and character to the world alone, and I really appreciate its true "shades of gray" morality, rather than 95% of rpgs which have a pretty obvious "good- bad- neutral" dialogue path.

Combat is interesting and I'm curious to see how it evolves in the sequels. It took a while to get used to it, and there's still some encounters where I get my ass wrecked if I'm not well prepared going in, but it's well optimized for the PC. It actually reminds me of Arkham Asylum style combat made for PC with a little less hand holding, requiring more input and thought on the player side.

Overall, I'm fuckin hype on The Witcher.

I agree with all of this as someone who started Witcher 3 like a week ago

Except I constantly switch between loving the combat (when I cut someone's head off then cut his friend in half) and hating the combat (when Geralt takes 3 years to pull his sword up to block but only 2 seconds to strike, or I randomly get buttfucked by enemies in the open world which I have no chance of defeating)

Yeah that's why I find myself avoiding random enemies as much as possible. There's always a dragon around which you have no chance of defeating for a long time.

One thing that irks me about the game is the alchemy system. It takes a lot more thought than I want to put into it just for making potions. And most of them are extremely situational. And if I'm collecting stuff for potions I have a ridiculous amount of ingredients in my inventory at any time. It's just too much thought taking me away from the story and action.

Yeah I've ignored the alchemy and crafting systems beyond bombs. Swords and spells are doing it just fine. I may occasionally make blade oils when I have the ingredients or upgrade mutagens but that's it.

Preparing to take out the "ancient evil" atm. Slowly building up a couple suits of power armor and some miniguns while selling meth to nearby tribes to pay for space implants. Hot Tip of the day: don't put prisoners you want to recruit in a tiny, unventillated room with a generator to save space unless you're prepared to perform emergency surgery to harvest their kidneys before they die of heat stroke

I really need to play some more of this. Got way into it for a while but I tend to burn myself out quickly on roguelikes. I guess Rimworld technically falls into that area but it's one of those things that you can have on in the background and look up at when it makes a noise, which is perfect for end-of-semester crunch time.

I always had a hard time taking out those ancient evils without losing like, half of my colonists. One time I rained mortars down on the area for a long while. Softened the enemies up a bit, but it also destroyed most of the cryo pods as well.

I'm in a similar situation though. Burnt myself out on Rimworld and then got hooked on Caves of Qud. Decided to get on a little before I head to work today. Didn't go so well. My fungi fighter fell to a fucking fruit fly. I couldn't speak with anyone because I had no tongue. Luckily I could still trade, so I decided to head for the banana groves, hoping to find a trader that might have something to at least grow my tongue back. Stepped in to the banana groves and was swarmed by mutant banana people and fruit flies(flys?). Poor Faginus.

Just bought Caves of Qud because of this. Jesus this is really good.

The character I got the furthest with was some Pure Kin tinkering build. Got to that religious city in the desert, and saw people bursting out in flames randomly. The guy died from some fire spiting bird, hunting for food in the desert. I really underestimated the satiety part.

That's awesome man. Glad you're liking it so far. I've been trying both the True Kin and mutated humans. I like how many extra skill points you can get with the True Kin. But I also like the mutations I've tried. I guess the fungal growths I had on my True Kin were like a mutation, but I didn't like not being able to equip armor and weapons. Also having my tongue rot off sucked. Gotta find some way to cure or prevent that. I read somewhere pouring honey on yourself will stop fungal growths, but I've been trying to do as much as I can blind and figure it out on my own.

I can see this game being one I play for a long while. I really like the ambient music as well. Joppa's music is nice and uplifting, while delving in to dungeons is kind of haunting and foreboding.

Yeah, it's really tight. Very reminiscent of Dwarf Fortress' rougelike mode, but the world is much more fleshed out than the near-absurd results of DF's world-gen.

I just realized that the waterskins can carry more than just water. Been walking around with a bag of slime, pouring it out to slow down deadly enemies.

NMS fanfic?

Wat? I've never posted or written one. They're cool though.

The "Civilized Space" thing has actual impacts on the game. NMS isn't multiplayer but it does have multiplayer elements: we can visit each others bases, racetracks, leave message modules, etc.

But

I finished off Blood Omen 2 and Defiance, completing my run through the Legacy of Kain series.

This may out me as a contrarian, but I think I liked BO2 the most. Its weakest points (story is pretty nothing and also directly contradicts previous games, graphics are noticeably worse than the preceding game) are things that don't really bother me. The combat is only a little different from Soul Reaver 2, but it seemed less like filler to me for some reason I can't identify. Maybe it was that there was an actual reason to kill things because sucking blood helped you incrementally build up your life-bar.

There are things I liked about Defiance, but mostly I just hated the camera. I guess it's trying to be cinematic or whatever, but I just wanted to be able to see what's in front of my character and I usually couldn't. Out of all the LoK games, the combat is probably the most polished in Defiance, but similar to SR2, it wasn't fun enough that I wanted to kill the number of enemies that were in the way and I started just running past everything I could.

After playing them again, I was a little disappointed with the series because instead of keeping what was good in each game and building on it, each iteration introduced its own good and bad points. Now I kind of want to play Onimusha or something to see if other early 2000s action-adventure games I liked aren't as good as I remembered, but I probably won't get around to that for a while.
