i saw that rdr2 was on sale on steam and im not sure if i should give in and buy it. to the people who finished playing it : what are your thoughts about it? (especially about the online multiplayer) was the story good?

What were your favourite games when you were kids, anons?
I used to play to play Lion King, Shakii, Croc 2, Spyro, Hocus, Tarzan, Crash Bandicoot, Earthworm Jim 2 and Sonic R all the time. I also watched my cousins play Heart of Darkness but I myself never played it because it seemed too scary lol

samefag, I'd also love to hear what were some obscure games that you guys played and you think are lesser known? I played Egypt II and a game called The City of Lost Children, both of which creeped me out massively but I enjoyed the atmosphere. I don't think they are very well known

Aaah, Spyro was so nice and pleasing.
My childhood favs were Tomb Raider, Spyro, Medievil, Abe's Odyssey (quite spooked by it) alongside straight up horror games like SH and RE
I don't know any of the less known games you mentioned tho. Rule of Roses seems to have the same atmosphere but I guess it became quite well known and popular so it doesn't count

no, it was this point and click exploration game where you were wandering alone in Heliopolis and had to solve puzzles

Anyone here play thief? Been thinking about getting into it but it's older than time itself and I'm not sure if it'll run on windows 10

i've been playing Dead by Daylight for the past 2 weeks, and oh boy do i have fun.
so far i've only been playing baby dweet, and i tend to die more often than not, but i'm not complaining.
the only thing that i dislike are the survivors that dc as soon as they get downed/hooked

When it comes to obsure, i used to play cute knight on this weird pop cap games program on windows vista,you had virtual coins to play games. It was strange.
Cute knight was like a princess maker game except you know…. sfw.
Some wonky early 2000s anime art,but i love it honestly.
I thought of this game the other day and I've been trying to find a version that isn't riddled with viruses.
All I remember is that you had a certain number of days and you could pray at a chapel to raise stats or explore a dungeon. My pea brain would always lose because I didn't know what the fuck I was doing.
Oh,i bought it for like 3 bucks a while back,just from the hanako games site.
Yeah its just a game where you raise skills and do odd jobs to get money so you can dungeoncrawl.
Its not a great game but its a bit of fun for a couple of hours.
FFX-2 is the superior game. You'll enjoy it more.>>101866
The Cat Lady is one of my favorite horror games of all time. it's one of the few, if not only games where you play as an openly depressed woman in her 30s+ . It's got such a strong and heavy theme that i think it goes so well. Susan is sassy , but openly vulnerable. I love her backstory. Also, your friendship with Mitzi is perfection.
It's truly a gem of a game imo.
File: 1596340663101.jpg (67.54 KB, 986x555, 9kCP68K.jpg)
Oh that's easy just play Oni, Micheal or Ghostface heavily punishes t bagging. Or if your feeling really cheap go meta Huntress. She's brutal to those who wanna waste time t bagging rather than breaking her totems. Plague used to be great for it but since she was so heavily reliant on the previous form of Ruin she got dumpstered hard. I'm enjoying Pyramid Head but I'd not recommend him for anyone not wanting to play anything hard. May his bubble butt forever rest in peace
then tunneling the same survivor should be banned too
as someone who has been playing since launch with 600+ hours and dropped the game several times (rank 1 but who cares), the devs don't do anything to fix the bugs/issues dealing directly with killer and survivor interaction(s), which just leads to more toxic
shit when the game doesn't function properly
it honestly amazes me they get away with all the shit they don't fix, like their 4 year anniv. event offering not working for a week+ lol

This game looks fun!! I'm pretty stoked about it being a free PlayStation Plus game

>>102189>FFX-2 >the superior game
At least you like the Cat Lady, kek. It's my favourite horror game too alongside Haunting Ground.
If you guys like alchemy shit + psychological horror with sexual innuendos I highly recommend
Spirit is pretty midtier now since they changed her kit to not collide with players when phased and finally gave her a vault animation. You have more to fear from a good Nurse than Spirit currently.>>102251
I love Haunting Ground Daniella best antagonist theme. Just emphasizing her madness from not being whole anf how much she despises Fiona for having a womb and being able to have sensation.

oh ye, you reminded me this fantastic quote
anon are you me? i played the same games and i was also freaked out a bit by abe's odyssey.
i was obsessed with spyro, but also loved croc, the first three harry potter games, zoo tycoon, MANY online flash games, and anything i could get my hands on in my backwards-ass euro country lmao
File: 1596438816403.jpg (39.27 KB, 470x264, harrypotterootpps2_sc003.jpg)
I'm euro too and used to always buy my games in second-hand gaming shops, I clearly remember when I stumbled upon RE4 in my usual shop, I was so happy, kek.
The only HP game that I enjoyed on PS was the Order of the Phoenix, I remember that it was kinda open world ish and you could run all around the castle and bully the shit out of the other students
File: 1596467170100.jpg (91.17 KB, 505x480, t1-sketch-conviktbig.jpg)
More than highly recommended as well as the II. Even without nostalgia googles on and acknowledging that the additional missions from Thief Gold and some from the mid/end-section of Thief II are not on par with the rest, it's worth every penny you can spend on them. The fan-made content is also incredible and in 2020 people still continue to churn out well-finished and innovative missions, far beyond what the vanilla game initially brought atmosphere and gameplay wise
I think the GoG version is patched an will run fine on Windows 10 but I'm not 100% sure

Has anyone ever played Style Savvy/Fashion Boutique? I'm getting a new computer soon, and I wanna play it on an emulator. Funnily enough, my brother used to help me play, and he was much better at it. Also, why is Japanese box art (and fashion in general) always superior to the western versions?>>102251
Haunting Ground sequel when?
File: 1596481509227.png (604.8 KB, 820x461, gm4.png)
yes! i've only played the third one and really want the fourth one but it's $40 on the eshop.
they didnt do a physical release for the fourth one in english and it's only available online. i'm insistent on buying it because i wanna support the game anyway i can kek.
File: 1596505871274.jpg (48.91 KB, 500x445, disney-fairies-tinker-bell-(e)…)
best ds game ever made
yes, the fact that it was made by a scrote who obviously gets off on the idea of pregnancy is obvious kek>actual disgusting and creepy
That's honestly why I like it, same for Rule of Rose despite the awful gameplay. Clock Tower games and their spiritual successors all have the same sexual/creepy vibe
Never understood why they never did, would have been a hit.
The only recent games that I enjoyed were BOTW and Subnautica.
I really want a good RPG and I've been thinking about finally playing Dragon Age Inquisition, but I'm scared that I won't like it, considering the hellfest that was DA2.
The only thing that saved this game in my heart was Fenris, and he's the only reason why I would replay it.
mfw no cute broody elf in DAI
File: 1596536270488.jpeg (2.93 MB, 3840x2160, you're not on a timer.jpeg)
It's much much better than DA2 imo.
If you give it a shot, there's an early area called The Hinterlands that is massive and you might feel the need to complete everything before moving on. You can and should come back.

Any anons that love Bloodborne? I'm really sad that on /vg/ the Bloodborne generals are either gone or archived too soon.
By the way, a kind reminder that the online PS multiplayer is going to be available for free this weekend, so if you feel like invading and co-oping, it's going to be the right time.
Bought that game when it went on sale. I stopped when I reached level 20+ and I got bored of it since all it gets grindy as hell and the side missions get a lil repetitive. Also, the map is huge as FUCK. I liked hunting the legendary animals plus fighting the mercenaries, though. Those were fun.
And like the other anon said, its more of a warrior's creed rather than assassin's. If you're into that sure get the game but if you've played other asscreed games and you're looking for that parkour and stealth then don't play ac odyssey.

>>102602> even have the hunter's mark as a tat.
That's so cool!> Currently challenging myself in the Old Hunters DLC to keep the guy in Ludwig's area alive.
I managed once
by pure luck to keep him alive and I've played Bloodborne so many times. So good luck, anon!
Do you play online as well?
And what build and BL is your current character?

I love it when some JRPGs have that vibe that reminds me of old shojo manga about adventure or mysteries like the ones by Saki Hiwatari, Kaori Yuki, CLAMP, Natsuki Takaya, etc. Like some of the Final Fantasy games before Squaresoft and Enix merged, or Persona 1 and 2 (and almost P3 too), the DDS games, the Raidou Kuzunoha games…
It's hard to describe but I think what gives me that impression is how there's romance and melodrama but it's not fanservice for otaku, it's legit part of the stories and settings, or how the male and female characters act and are described. Especially in the retro FF where the male protagonists are covered in jewelry and makeup or how the DDS novels describe Serph as so pretty and so cute he's basically a feminine bishonen. Even some plot points are super similar, the school fusing with a supernatural tower in P1 and P3 is the exact same shit as in Mirai no Utena. If there are games that ever gave you that impression I'm open for recommendations.

Here is my completely subjective review:
I liked DAI. I didn't play DA2 so I can't compare. I really liked the beautiful, colorful, big and varied world and the many different monsters in it and the feeling of exploring the world. Lots of places had a wonderful atmosphere, which was what I liked about DAO too. I didn't care much for the story, I can't even remember most of what happened but I usually don't care for stories in games. I didn't like the characters too much, except Cassandra, she was cool. And Vivienne and Varric I guess. The rest I didn't think too much about or they got on my nerves (like Sera). The combat was fun and I liked it better than DAO's strategy based combat but if you liked the strategy, you might find this "watered down". I also really liked upgrading my fortress and collecting decor for it and dyeing my armor. And collecting different mounts. You can even get a giant nug mount. Isn't it cute?

I want to recommend this old game, 3 in Three. It's a puzzle game, I found it really fun, sometimes a bit tedious but fun. I like how the number 3 is female for some reason too. She makes lots of snarky comments. You can get it here, you need an emulator but I think it's all on the site. http://www.thefoolserrand.com/04-3T/index.htm
There's also another good puzzle game from the same creator, The Fool's Errand, which can be found on the same site, but I liked 3 in Three better.

Arcane and Bloodtinge are my favorite builds. I have a pure arc character and it's so much fun. Well, at least when you get the milkweed rune and kos parasite.
Handling a cane is a very tough challenge when your stats aren't that much in favor considering you're going for arc.
It's a shame you're not online that much. I can understand considering your type of work but man, do I wish the multiplayer was more active. I don't have much time to play lately either but sometimes I just like to spin a round or two and I find myself waiting for people to invade more than actually invading.
File: 1596702040744.jpg (64.96 KB, 1094x667, FF7-Remake.jpg)
What are some popular games that you didn't like?
For me, my recent disappointments were the FF7 ((remake)) and TLOU2.
I honestly feel bad for the people who never played the original FF7, I don't understand how they can get wtf is going on in this game considering it's a sequel branded as a remake
Totally a matter of taste. Personally I think pixel graphics are charming. I agree with you about the characters, they were very boring, but I don't typically give a shit about characters anyway.
>It's not good
What did you expect, anon? It's a farming simulator.
File: 1596798614912.jpg (85.49 KB, 2048x2048, cutebean.jpg)
I've been playing it a ton on steam
How are you enjoying it so far anon?
The jellybeans are just too cute and the relaxed nature of the game makes for really funny situations
Ah yeah, you're right. I recalled the portraits of the port (maybe?) and the models in Dissidia for the PSP.
Still, a game with that style exactly would be very nice.
Nomura is a good artist but not always a really good character designer, that's a shame. It was weird playing FF10 and think that half of the main characters looked super cool and stylish and the others had awful clothes to the point of being a crime against fashion. I also wish he would draw less detailed stuff sometimes, I like the art style in The world ends with you.
By the way, when was the last time Amano worked on a video game as a character designer? He always creates the logos for mainline FF games, and he did the character design for FF6 and FF9 last, probably worked on other games after that, but is it actually possible that he could ever come back for character design and not just to design logos? I find it ironic that now that technology is advanced enough to translate his designs accurately with all the small makeup and jewelry details like in the new Dissidia game he isn't doing anything anymore.

I feel the same way with Persona games. I loved Kazuma Kaneko's character designs because I felt like they fit the game's dark atmosphere better and really don't like Shigenori Soejima's stuff. But I mean I get it why he'd be more popular, his style is more mainstream, more anime-like
File: 1596977548445.jpg (117.1 KB, 400x483, 1445451456779.jpg)
I like Soejima as much as Kaneko when it comes to drawing and designing human characters but I hate how the portraits for P3 and P4 look like shit half of the time. How the hell is Yosuke supposed to be a stylish pretty boy when he looks like a humanoid giraffe in his portraits? Anyway, Kaneko is still working for Atlus but doesn't do art for games anymore, we need to move on. I'm still not over the fact that the story he planned for SMT4 was so long that we actually only have half of it in the final product AND in the direct sequel.
File: 1597165545028.jpg (73.89 KB, 900x661, srtdfjkhjl.jpg)
I finally beat FFX-2 and guess what? Right after beat the 4 bosses one after another I forgot to press X at the exact time when I was supposed so I didn't get the good ending! I don't want to throw my PSVita through the window or anything! Fuck this, who thought this was a good idea?
File: 1597169854720.jpg (804.14 KB, 2048x2040, EfA9mHmXYAYEUXj.jpg)
I have yet to win but I keep getting so close like at the last round or before the last one
the cute cosmetics in this game also up the enjoyment easily especially with the sounds they make
