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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
File: 1596585771720.png (1.3 MB, 854x1340, 1590823275001.png)
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.

What did you expect, anon? It's a farming simulator.

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.

the cute cosmetics in this game also up the enjoyment easily especially with the sounds they make
you mean you did ALL the side quests for 100% completion and the X thing was the only thing you missed?

Right? Even though the team was rushed during the very last part of the game, they still managed to deliver something like this.>>103809
Ayrt, and I'd say yes. I usually find vampires cringey, but the ones in VTM are actually cool. After playing this game I got both the Revised Edition and V20 rulebooks just so that I could read more about them.
It's a great story. Great writing, memorable characters with impressive facial and body animations, great voice acting, great OST, great atmosphere, sceneries, immersive experience.
Take a look at pic related if you decide to play, download the game and then the Unofficial patch from wesp5, and only use that launcher to play. Enjoy

I played as a Malk, Toreador, Tremere and Ventrue before. I also want to try the Nosferatu, seems like the gameplay would be challenging.
Random thoughts about the upcoming game: Oh man, I really hope that it will have the humor and the writing style of the original, to me these made the game unforgettable. The dialogue in the new game's demo seemed so dry and void of personality. They didn't even try to make the NPCs seem interesting. I have a fear that the writers are going to pander to the SJW culture and strip the dialogues off everything that could be seen as even mildly offensive.
Unpopular opinion: while it's no Isolated
, the cheesy Eurotrash song that plays in the club is a mood
File: 1597417350186.png (263.77 KB, 640x751, 8enmv76mztd41.png)
Ventrue, Toreador and Malkavian. Ventrue is a personal favorite.
After seeing how Nosferatus sperg at Toreadors, now I really wanna try the Tremere run just to see Andrei (and others) going full-on SEETHE at the fledgeling.>>104053
I want to hope in a decent game because let's face it, this type of game is very niche and I'm starving for more VTM content.
We just have to keep in mind that it won't be no Bloodlines. The goth atmosphere won't be there, the game is based on the lame ass V5 edition, they have snowflakes like Cara Ellison in the team, Mitsoda seems to have lost his mind, they're using a different engine than Source, as you can see by the lack of acting by the characters in the demo. The characters in Bloodlines were so lively and expressive, while in that demo NPCs just stood there completely still with their faces barely moving as they spoke.
So I'll play it while keeping my expectations low, and try to take it for what it is: something different.
If it's garbage, at least we'll get to have a good playlist to listen to, since the composer from Bloodlines is back.

>Mitsoda seems to have lost his mind
oh boy. you know he broke up with murderblonde late last year? both of them were really cool people (especially annie, she was super down to earth) until they moved to seattle and founded doublebear. there must be something in the water there.
it's hard for me to feel excitement because i think a lot of the old legendary game devs from the early 2000s have regressed too much. leonard boyarsky and tim cain's the outer worlds lacked the brilliant ambition that they were once known for. i wouldn't have known it was made by the guys who made arcanum, fallout and bloodlines if i wasn't following its development ever since they teased it.
the only veteran rpg gamedev who is still consistent is chris avellone, but he probably sodoku'd after he got #metoo'd over twitter. (fyi the allegations are bullshit and they were spearheaded by a known scammer) they 'wrote out' his contributions, but he probably just had the same role as he did with baldurs gate: siege of dragonspear (game was horrible and the snowflake writer even crammed a troon into it) where he just gives feedback to the writers.
the game is doomed to fail. i've personally lost hope in any good american rpgs coming out. i recommend y'all play disco elysium if you haven't. the game is completely text based and is up your alley if you like bloodlines for its characters/quests
File: 1597501124583.png (Spoiler Image, 868.75 KB, 531x2587, TPxBBAm.png)
in 2013, @SJBsMama (Karissa Barrows) planned a charity fundraiser event for PAX East (MECC) where they wanted to get the all of the Mass Effect VAs to cosplay as their respective characters. there was a lot of hype in the cosplay community as they would be able to get a lot of good exposure for their work while helping a charity (st jude) in the process.
sounded pretty good in concept, but then a bunch of them dropped out for whatever reasons and karissa of course failed to disclose that. pic related was the lineup midway through the campaign. at that point several had already dropped out (courtney taylor - jack, steve blum - generic grunts and raphael sbarge - kaidan, but there were more, im just basing this off of reddit comments) in the end it was only 4 people. two VAs (kimberly brooks - ashley and keythe farley - thane) along with 2 face models.
one of the costume makers (leah nelson) made cosplay for the model luciano costa and ended up calling out karissa over tumblr.https://tifaia.tumblr.com/post/80354766538/a-word-of-caution-about-the-mass-effect-cast
TL;DR leah makes a costume for luciano, and when karissa sends her the money to ship the costume to her, she sends an e-check saying that there wasn't enough money in the paypal account, since it had been transferred to collect interest in another account (which was basically confirmed to be karissa's personal account as she did not have an EIN for MECC) leah starts smelling bs. leah and other members of N7 Elite (ME cosplay community) send an email to karissa voicing concerns.
karissa refuses to divulge an EIN or any transactions showing what the donations are for which they would be obligated to if they had tax-exempt status. karissa explains that nothing donated towards MECC is tax deductible (showing why you shouldn't donate to middlemen!) she even pulls the whole "we had no signed agreement" to push back against leah's requests for this information. but it's all very vague and a lot of non answers as you can imagine.
eventually, karissa kicks leah off of the project, tells her to send the armor back. leah refuses as she was requested by another project member to stay onboard in addition to not wanting somebody else to make alterations to the costume she sacrificed a month making. luciano still had the armor at this point and was meant to send it back to leah for adjustments. but karissa manages to intercept him and tells him to send it to her because leah "had to pull out do to personal matters."

I was looking forward to Avellone's contribution to the game tbh, but they scrubbed everything he wrote from the project and fired him after the allegations. This new team is entirely made of woke people pleasers with no decent game under their belt - save for Mitsoda, for the latter part.
Now we have Mitsoda saying he will represent Malkavians' mental illness more respectfully because the wackiness from the first game was "problematic
" and people joked about fishmalks. Even though y'know, they're vampires with a very specific, non-human mental illness. God forbid these fictional characters with a very fictional brand of mental illness (which is more complicated than that, they're not schizos - they're almost seers, so it's not comparable with human mental illnesses) are not "represented respectfully" and get offended!
But what were we expecting, from nuWoD. Every pnp VTM player knows of the trash fire that was the V5 manual. The political shit, the Anarchs pushed as the right faction against the evil fascist Camarilla (which is now even responsible of killing gay people in Chechnya!), Nosferatus now look like normal people but with hobo clothes, feeding is literally rape because you don't have the human's consent, all the cringy in-your-face hardcore antifa shit… and this game will be based on this version of the manual.
File: 1597504314720.png (350.33 KB, 875x644, ghQqHDu.png)
the new team is a joke although ka'ai/martin cluney - creative director at hardsuit labs is an industry vet who has worked on notable fps games: mobygames.com/developer/sheet/view/developerId,7813/
he also worked on the cancelled obsidian aliens: crucible game. his linkedin says that he stopped working at hardsuit in july 20. brian has mentioned quite a few times that cluney was basically the reason why hardsuit got the vtmb2 contract: https://venturebeat.com/2019/03/26/vampire-the-masquerade-bloodlines-ii-interview-brian-mitsoda/
i don't think this game is coming out.
nuWoD is horrible but i have to give credit where credit is due for this awesome passage. i would like them to explore this concept in the game although i wouldn't get my hopes up.
Sadly LoL has nothing on Overwatch. Devs there even listen to the toxic
bastards it's why losers like Samito think their gods. Cause Jeff's too stupid to realize they only want the game to cater to them not to actually work. LoL doesn't really mess with what can cause them profit. Blizzard let a guy who had a booster service play in the pros even.
I wonder how this happens, I don’t want to try overwatch at all because I know about the fuckery that is their online community and sadly afaik the whole game is online so there’s no way to avoid them. Also the way those communities (for LoL as well) are all male-dominated spaces really doesn’t help imo.
In Overwatch's case, it was introduced as baby's first fps. Then Blizzard decided that just because it was popular enough in it's first year to get on the tourneys they obviously needed to make a big ole e sports league and focus solely on that rather than improve the game. Inviting in that toxic
manchild competitive audience.
A great sample of how shitty it's gotten is that people can change their usernames to full on slurs but shit like freehongkong and ggez are banned. Guy got banned on twitch because someone was spam friending him making it stuck on his screen with some racist phrase. Another guy wanted to prove how utterly bad the reporting system is and made a custom game called it "report me for cheating" Told anyone that entered to report him and was banned like 15 minutes later. For sitting in the spawn doing absolutely nothing.

I used to play the shit out of Prototype as a teenager. The mechanics were so fun, I would always waste time climbing around the city and disguising myself as passersby. I need to play it again sometime.
Is it the first person perspective or just the fast paced-ness. Warframe is 3rd person, but also can be pretty fast.
The only time I ever got nauseous playing video games was when my brother rented this huge TV once.

>>105155>expecting their employee to say anything other than "The game is good you guys, don't worry, everything's fine!"
Outstar is literally on the company's payroll to advertise the game, she's nothing but a shill. Don't expect any truth from her. In both her discord and the official Bloodlines one she's already been doing damage control since yesterday, along with the mods.
As for the SJW stuff, Mitsoda himself seemed to be on board with it, with the "treating Malkavians' mental illness more respectfully" thing. Ellison is even woker and so is the dev team.
What we know for now is that:>Mitsoda doesn't have allegations, didn't molest anyone or any of that shit, as confirmed by the PR team>the company talked of "creative differences">Cara Ellison is now in charge of the writing>there are rumors of elements of the story being changed last minute>it's possible the consultant from Ubisoft was hired to help polish the combat and action sequences>the dev commentary special featuring Mitsoda, which was meant to be included in the pre-order bonuses, has been scrubbed
Brian is a meek guy with social anxiety, I don't think he's done anything.
There's a rumor about him strongly opposing the ideas of someone from upper management because he cares so much about Bloodlines, and they weren't having it, but who knows.
For me, it's possible that he wanted to polish more aspects of the narration/he wanted to do more, but the company just wants to release the game.
It's a Troika situation all over again. This franchise is cursed.
Pirate it when it comes out, don't give them money.
It was a good run, but i doubt this game is going to happen. even if it does get released, who will buy it?

They're too far into the project, it was supposed to be released earlier this year and it's got five years of work behind. They will release it, though I'm curious to see how are they going to handle this nightmare. Damage control didn't save them from hundreds, thousands of refunds and fans expressing their anger all over every single platform - and it's not going to die down.>>105262

Anon you're responded to here, and I agree. Although I'm not sure why you said Activision. Absolutely crazy how tanks feel like DPS now, and to hear that they're removing shield is insane.
Curious on how OW2 is gonna be like.
Ah. That's something new everyday, thanks.
Was wondering why COD was on the Blizzard launcher. Makes sense.
If you still wanna play some events together, hit up!

You need to specify what genres you like, there are too many well-optimized games that can run on toasters but without knowing what you like to play it's hard to recommend.
Not sure if that helps since as I said I only watched a playthrough long ago, but there are new endings for Catherine and Katherine, there's Rin in general who changes the story a little by default, and there are new puzzles. When starting a run you can choose whether you want the stages from the original or brand new stages. People were sperging so hard over the new character that I only knew about the new puzzles when starting the game myself. Make your opinion yourself based on that because I feel like if you loved the original you'll either like the changes and additions to the game a lot or you'll dislike them a lot, based on opinions I've seen online.
Also it looks like I missed Rin's route but that's for the best, I want ending with the original characters before getting Rin's route.

I am just in love with Grounded rn, it's such a throwback to Honey I shrunk the kids, and though they didn't have to the devs gave the option to turn the spider enemies into marshmallows for those of us with extreme arachnophobia. They plan on huge updates, but for an early access game it's def worth it just to see what they add. I'm really hoping for the ability to tame the worker ants and ride them about.
I'm guessing the way Blizzard handles it is by number of reports by different people. Most gamers do not care about reporting slurs because a lot of them are edgelords to begin with. The fake cheater was actively asking people to report him to prove a point so they probably received a LOT in a short time and instabanned.
That being said Riot seems to take it more seriously than Blizzard. Every slur-user I've reported has gotten banned. Whether it was permanent I can't say but they definitely got punished because the feedback system tells you when your report succeeded.
Also I'm of two minds on the Malk situation. On one hand characters that are CRAAAZY are fun to play as but on the other, It's frustrating to see films and games depicting mentally ill people so poorly. Perhaps if their chaotic behavior was framed as not mental illness but still remained chaotic it could work? I can already hear the people saying it's not a big deal but once you have someone who has serious mental health issues in your life (or are one) the topic isn't that easy to dismiss.
If there was no stigma against mental illness in our real world then I definitely wouldn't care about how media shows it but it's still a tough subject today. For those that really want cartoony depictions of insanity, think about rape scenes and ask yourself how you want those to be executed.
what i don't get is the amount of abuse some guys dish out in unranked games. lots of league players i encounter need to get a grip, instead of losing their minds over not winning an unranked
game. i'm just here for fun, which i believe is the point of videogames?

No it's based on how many reports a person gets in a certain amount of time and the decay for reports is complete horseshit so often if everyone reports you just because you don't like playing Ana EVERY single game as a support main. You get reported and can get a p[enalty, even in quick play. As well as they just let the bot handle bans.
Even with the added replay system to further show when it's not a player's fault Blizzard just lets the bot decide even as it's been heavily shown it's about as correct in it's determination as Easy anti cheat.
Hell their recent big cheater purge only came to be because people were actually showing how bad it was by having full on AI programmed to follow them around and shoot and it being less than sophisticated in it's coding clearly firing based on the player's inputs on whoever they were actually playing. In fact the only actual reversal I can think of on the top of my head was a streamer named TreeboyDave who was even featured on their launcher for having the highest possible level in game. Guy only plays QP never comp and got permabanned on what appears to be streamsnipe reporting. And was only reversed after their pet youtubers broke ranks to say how unfair it was and get enough traction for articles. It's why I prefer Riot, cause even though they have a toxic
fanbase they'll make fun of it, but at the same time punish bullshit. Blizzard pretends they're always morally right until attention is brought to how utterly bad they are.
TL;DR Blizzard has one of the worst reporting/anti cheat system in recent gaming and only ever fixes mass issue when it gets too public for comfort and they could risk profit.

I have been playing this in the last few days. I like psychology and the poster girl reminded me of Morgana from Fata Moru, so I gave it a try.
Is nothing special, barely a game, but it's fun for people that like to take personality quizzes.

i totally forgot about this game until now. i remember playing it on gamecube and absolutely sucking but loving it nonetheless.

has anyone played vampire the masquerade: bloodlines? is it in any way available on a console? i realllyyyyy prefer using a controller. tfw when you break both hands and have limited movement in half your fingers
yes, and no i don't think so.
the game as-is is amazing but so busted. you should get it on PC if just to make sure you can use the unofficial patches when it inevitably breaks.
it's not really complex, controls wise. wasd movement and lots of hack and slash (frantic clicking) but nothing more complicated than that.
i hope you try it, it really is a wonderful game

anons, do you remember playing games at a young age and being scared of things that should have not actually been scary? i'll start. i used to play every nancy drew game, but message in a haunted mansion actually traumatized me. the whispering paintings and general ghostly action in it made the game unbearable for me to play at nightime or without a friend. i remember there was a scene where a ghost appears in the corner of a room and i legitimately cried for 2 hours. the ghost didn't even pop out at you, it just chilled and walked by your screen. but it fucked me up so much i couldn't even finish the game. granted it is a mystery themed spooky game series, but it's point and click and reliant on puzzles lol. idk if i was the age range it was meant for (i was in elementary school) but god those games were good.
i also remember being a pussy in fallout 3 despite being a tween playing it. i remember stepping out of the vault and being terrified for no good reason. just seeing the waste stressed me out like no other even before enemies started spawning. i remember finding megaton and not leaving for ages because i hated traversing the wastes by myself. got over it quickly though.
File: 1598953097152.jpg (12.4 KB, 480x360, hqdefault.jpg)
I was scared by the gnomes from the first Harry Potter game on PC, I hated the noises they made and they never disappeared upon defeat, so they always unnerved me. They are not even scary and I was already 8 at that time, I should not have been terrified by them, but I always asked my (little) brother to get rid of them for me.
I also have a fear of deep sea monster, so when I came across Hydrus in Shadow of the Colossus, seeing his serpentine figure looming in the water was terrifying to me and I waited for 10 minutes before engaging the fight. He is not even creepy like Dirge or Pelagia.
YES there's just something about this game, IDK if it's the simplicity and pacing of the gameplay or something else, that for the first time made me feel like maybe gaming IS a waste of time after all. At least this title.
It's surprising considering how immensely popular it is.

My 3Ds got stolen, along with my Rune Factory 4 on it. Even though it's out on the switch now, as silly as it sounds I don't want to buy it again because all of the characters wouldn't remember me and that'd make me sad, kek. Rune Factory 3 also seems good but I dislike playing on emulators, so I bought the Friends of Mineral Town Remake. It's a cute and enjoyable game but nothing is filling up my Rune Factory want! No other game compares to how alive the characters feel, the dialogue, etc, apart from maybe older animal crossing games. All the characters in fomt repeat so much, RF4 has barely any repeated dialogue and I got up to year 5 iirc.

The Toy Story 2 game on PC was actually my first video game ever (excluding edutainment softwares), how nostalgic! I was also scared by some of the bosses like the jackhammer on pic related, the dinosaur or the toy plane, they all had this creepy angry face. Now that I think about it, it was kinda scary for a tie-in Toy Story game, some of the levels were kinda bleak and oppressive (the rainy street, the elevator network or the airport).

I loved this game when I was a kid, and would play it now to exhaustion if the emulator didn't run out of memory. I always liked being scared, and the monsters and curses were thrilling for 7 year old me. There's no plot nor skill, but with nostalgia googles this game is just so damn comfy. I can turn my brain off and just fuck around in that wonky house.
File: 1599129188139.jpg (180.59 KB, 600x380, gestalt-replicant.jpg)
Unpopular opinion but I prefer the original NieR over Automata, I enjoyed the main cast better (couldn't stand 9S at all) and the OST was more memorable.
When it comes to the gameplay, I saw a lot a of people bemoaning Gestalt/Replicant's as "omg, so bad, it really detracts from the gaming experience" when it's fairly standard gameplay for a story driven game and it works well (these people clearly never played Drakengard). Automata's gameplay, while good, is nothing deep either, it's even extremely simplified compared to other Platinum Games like Bayonetta or MGR. Weirdly enough, the fishing minigame was really barebones compared to the first game.
The story in both NieRs is nothing amazing and the messages tend to get hammered unsubtlety, I prefered the slow apocalypse atmosphere of the first one rather than the full blown post-apocalypse of the second one, and the surface level philosophical references got really obnoxious by the end. The world was super fun to explore at the begininng but it fell into the same habits as NieR when you had to go back to the same places during the different routes.
I genuinely enjoyed playing NieR Automata, it's a very good game, but it was over hyped to me (especially since I only played it this year) and it didn't have the same emotional impact as Gestalt's (Shadowlord forever my favorite game ost of all time).

that whole game (and movie) used to put me on edge.
this minigame in the finding nemo PC game was the worst. It's called "feeding frenzy" and the music scared me, not to mention the losing screen (which happened a lot because i was not good at this game) had me hiding behind my chair as a kid. (4:10 in yt vid attached)

This game fucked me up.
I played Skyrim like a madwoman and then I just stopped. It had nothing more to offer. I wanted to try out the extensions but it was just too boring to play the second time, I don't know, for some reason it's one of my "one time beat" games. I think the graphics with the general atmosphere made this game and that's what I remember fondly
Oblivion is fun with its crazy quests and shit, but it's tiring and so wonky. Morrowind is pure sentiment. It's barely playable for me, I missed out on finishing it when I was younger and now I just can't stand going through it. It's just too old for my hyper monkey brain.
Blades is just fun and easy, I guess. Quests are decent for a mobile game. It's not pay to win and you don't need to spend money at all. I wish the plot was more intense but still, as rpg for mobile? Enjoyable little game
Right here anon! I think I'm going to romance Cliff again since I usually go for whoever seems the loneliest to me, but finally being able to be lesbian makes me want to go for Popuri and Elli too. How about you? Are you enjoying it so far?

Anons!! Can anyone recommend me PC games like Cake Mania? I tried pirating them for nostalgia purposes but my favorite, 2nd part, ended up not working at all and even on steam I've seen people complaining over bugs in this game. I'd love to play a cute time management simulator, or a game about cakes.
God I still have Cake mania 1 and 2 on my 2ds and it's so addicting.I'd always end up craving for cake aftwerwards haha.
IDK if this game is any of the kind you want, But I enjoyed Diner Dash (2004 version) as much as I did Cake Mania. Maybe you'll enjoy it too? Apologies if this doesn't rlly help
I got a shitty knockoff usb dualshock controller off ebay and it works pretty well with a program like JoyToKey so I can play pc games with it, haven't tried it with bloodlines though. iirc steam supports xbox controllers too?
Also seconding the anon that recommended Malkavian for the first run, but I'd say go with the base unofficial patch instead of plus
Spooky Mall by Alawar
It's about managing a mall for ghosts. And it's like 6 bucks on amazon
It really does just boil down to personal preference. I admit also that some of the clan-specific dialogue options really don't correspond to the base responses they're supposed to replace, and that sometimes makes it easy to get confused, say the wrong thing and fuck everything up just like real life mental illness! thanks WoD!!
idk about immersion, but it's definitely a lot of fun if you have a fuck around and find out kind of playstyle.
have any anons made any bloodlines mods? I'm learning and I'd love to hear others' experiences. is there a thread for modding games?
>>107057>I just wish rival marriages were back, even though I hate Popuri and Kai together.
this! i want this to be my chill game that i'll be playing for several in-game years so it really bums me out that they cut them out. :(
i married gray because he was my first crush when i played hm64 as a guy. i was thinking of trying to romance the harvest goddess but i had no idea that you had to pick her when you said you liked someone or you won't be able to marry the goddess.
the game is still a lot of fun for me, i'm in the second summer right now. i really like the localization/translation – they really did a tremendous job. i like how it is a faithful remake with some QoL changes although i really wish they added more to the characters. i would've loved them to have developed the backstory behind lillia's husband leaving, etc.
i hope you're having loads of fun!

>>104452>hey 'wrote out' his contributions, but he probably just had the same role as he did with baldurs gate: siege of dragonspear (game was horrible and the snowflake writer even crammed a troon into it) where he just gives feedback to the writers.
According to Chris Avellone's Linkedin, he contributed a lot to Bloodlines 2. Bullshit that they wrote everything out.
On another note, this Euro sperg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TV_xrEU5o2g
made a 46 minute long video on the accusations. He does talk about the scamming explained in >>104469
It is a long video but basically this sperg went through all of the accuser's tweets which include some quips like two saying that they weren't assaulted after the events that they now claimed were assaulted at. I think there's too much reaching but it really is incredible how much effort this guy went to disprove the claims.
>>107761>Bullshit that they wrote everything out
I really think they did. Look at all the delays. When a game is supposed to come out in early 2020, then it gets delayed to late 2020, then delayed to 2021 (not even a defined time frame), you can't help but wonder what the hell are they doing. Not to mention it turned out that in the month when the game was supposed to come out earlier this year, they were STILL doing mocap
We're lucky if they don't write out Mitsoda's contributions at this point
Same, since 2018 they could have easily rewritten entire game if they wanted. Usually the most common cause for a delay is optimization struggle (especially if they planned to release Bloodlines on the current console generation and I think they did), but if they're still working on the actual content then who knows, maybe it really is the core story struggle all along. Which is a really bad sign.
I don't they wanted to release the game the same year as Cyberpunk too since it's the biggest competition and it would really crush their sales, moving to year after is definitely beneficial.
>I was not part of the conversations that led to the decision to delay production, and to my knowledge, there were no delays caused by the Bloodlines 2 narrative development.

Has anyone played this game? You go to some mansion-like dungeon that spans an entire planet and the dungeon starts generating clones of you that learn from your actions. I got it a while ago and I didn't get too far because I'm too much of a coward, I was afraid to shoot the clones because I knew they'd learn how to shoot as well. The setting and the premise and everything are very interesting though. I don't know if I should get over myself and play it or not. The main menu is the best I've ever seen, check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lKaN0h28gE
Yes and yes. The only thing you can't do with a 2DS XL is use the gimmicky 3D feature that nobody uses anyway because of how fast it drains the battery and how it's uncomfortable to look at. You also can't play some very specific games like Xenoblade Chronicles or FE Warriors that only work for the New 3DS and New 2DS but you can play them on other consoles like the Switch anyway, it's not a big loss at all.
Btw about DS games on the 3DS/2DS, it works just fine, but if you want to play them with their original resolution press start when starting the games. On my 3DSXL these games look very blurry and stretched out because of the difference in screen sizes so I usually do that.

After a long pause, I'm back to Dark Souls III and god does it feel good to play a SoulsBorne game again! I know the game is quite controversial among the fanbase (too samey from the two previous games and unnecessary lore addition and callbacks) but I enjoy it a lot, the boss fights tend to be very good and I love the atmosphere. I'm a bit rusty since I've played other stuff since then (I'm often trying to pick items with the round button), so I'm collecting weapons I'm missing to warm up. I remember being stuck to two hard bosses before leaving the game (Nameless King and Sister Friede), I'm not ready for them yet.
I'm waiting for the October update to finally start Sekiro, the game looks great and an interesting departure from FromSoftware's formula.
You should try the Cinders mod. Adds weapons and armor from the other games, even Bloodborne.
FP regens by default so you're more free to use your spells and weapon arts. Also changes some enemy placement and boss behavior and abilities, let's you sequence break and go to a lot of areas earlier, so if there's a particular weapon you like, but can only get late game, then that's not a problem anymore.

So yesterday we had a 5th anniversary of Undertale release and honestly I'm surprised how much this all touched me. The game was an amazing experience, and the themes of it were so beautiful and special, it really deserves all of it's hype; though I wish the fandom was a little less insane so there's no negativity attached to it. Still, it's impossible to avoid anytime something becomes as popular.

I saw "Avalanche" listed as the devs but it's Avalanche Software (behind Disney Infinity) not Avalanche Studios (Just Cause series). Thought it might at least have good action but so much for that. This will probably be shallow, repetitive and shitty. Would rather have an HP-influenced game by a decent dev than a licensed HP game by some generic Disney payroll group, but I hope it's good for the anons excited about it.

Im not a harry potter fan but by the leaks I saw of content, and previous leaks about the game were correct so im assuming these are too, it genuinely looks like a Bioware RPG with a Harry Potter skin.

Since Bioware hasn't made a good game in almost 9 years im hopeful about this and I don't mind Avalanche copying their stuff at all, it actually make me hopeful its going to be a good rpg.

RUNE FACTORY 5 INFO FINALLY. I'm not even mad it's been delayed until next year since I never expected this game to come out at all. It's been like 7 years since RF4 was released.

HOLY SHIT YESSSS at long last!!
I was hopeful RF5 was still being made since it never got removed from the Switch lineup in official docs, but it had been ages since they released any info on it. So hype to finally get an update! I absolutely loved RF4, it was the perfect mix of traditional JRPG with some actually challenging combat, fun life sim/Harvest Moon mechanics, crafting and pets. One of the few games I've been looking forward to in recent years.
Only thing I'm sad about is that I'm going to miss making this adorable boy my hubby.

And of course, this would happen. Hope you're able to find one without having to sell a kidney.
It's probably my favorite handheld. I don't feel comfortable taking a Switch on the go as bad things can and do happen, but the DS is easier to take care of.
Yessss I love all the butlers. I loved marrying Clorica. (imagine if you could marry Volkanon omg)>>108354
This makes me feel kind of sad. I played a lot of video games growing up but I've probably invested the most time in my 3DS. I still use the pink 3DS I bought 8 years ago about once or twice a week.

Volkanon is cute! I love that he has a stern look but is actually a crybaby.
This butler talk reminds me of Cube from the Princess Maker series and the fact she could marry him. The PM style always skewed too young for me, but the concept was cool. I like sweet, thoughtful and more submissive love interests so it's nice the job lends itself to that haha.
Too young like the ending where you can raise your daughter to be a dominatrix?
Jkjk but the kinda sexual endings always puts me off, it's deffo a game for girls but like, raising a kid and then she becomes a prostitute with art?

God, I fucking hate how the new final fantasy looks. You can barely even tell it's a final fantasy game, it looks exactly like any other generic medieval europe fantasy game, like a copycat boring version of Dragon Age or The Witcher.
Where are my pretty boys, edgy designs and futuristic art???? What even is the main party characters for this game, if we will even get them???
I know that XV sucked but it at least had a clear concept with charminho characters. I hate that SE is turning FF into what annoying gamergate type assholes want.
Omg anons I was wondering why the XVI trailer felt so underwhelming to me… this is exactly it.
I really hope we get more info soon, maybe something to make this appealing if that's even possible at this point. I'm going to be mad if we don't get party members.

Any older anons that played the original PoP Sands of Time?
I was so excited when I saw that there was a remake coming soon but when I saw the trailer I had to actually rub my eyes to check if I was seeing things correctly.
Not only do the graphics look seriously outdated but the entire mood, the voice acting, animations, etc. look utterly horrible and devoid of any charm that the original had. Then I've learned that Ubisoft India was in charge for the game and whenever you criticize the game you get a bunch of angry indians insulting you even though criticizing the game is nothing personal against indians.
link to the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htzq7EEXQs8
Yeah, unironically the original SoT despite having older graphics looks way better. The facial expression in the new one make everything look worse. Apparently the released trailer is in alpha and the beta screenshots look promising but to me, it still looks pretty bad. I honestly have no idea how a company like Ubisoft green lit this garbage. I always thought that one thing they ought to be good at were graphics.
I was looking forward to the Warrior Within remake the most but if they pull out the same shit like this, I'd rather they completely abandon the series.
lol at the comparisons with other western games and GOT. The trailer reminds me of FF Tactics, Vagrant Story, etc. and the little boy and the young girl look like they're straight out of FF3 remake and FF12 so imo it does fit in the FF series.
>Also crystals? Find the crystals to save the world? Original.
Like in a shit ton of FF games? Crystals are one of the most iconic things in the series, like Mogs or Chocobos, I don't get how that's a complain yet you're also complaining about the trailer not being FF-like. >>108436
Amano only does logos now. Which sucks, his character designs were so detailed, imagine a current gen in HD in which he would design the characters.
I have no idea what on the trailer reminded you of Tactics, I would have been more than happy for it to be reminiscent of it. We didnt see that much of the gameplay so I'm sure anons are comparing just the overall design of it, FF never really did this "gritty no fun allowed you can barely see what is on the screen because everything is so dark" look and it's disappointing that they are going for it.
I'm sure there's callbacks to older titles but in a series that is known for it's art and character designs, seeing something this bland is disappointing.
I was hoping he would! The characters from early FFs look gorgeous in dissidia, i can imagine the world itself would too. But even some other designer that could bring that high fantasy feel would be cool.
You mentioned ff tictacs but even that game had some fun level and character designs and there were many party members and such, i didn't get this feel from the trailer at all… i hope it's just because it's too early in development.>>108447
It would suck without party members. The characters and their interactions were what saved XIII and the parties whit a variety of charas have been a huge part of the game since forever.>>108488
It's a different genre and has fairy tale beings instead of vampires but "The Wolf Among Us" gave me VTMB vibes.
You might also like the Shadowrun games, which are cyberpunk/fantasy rpgs.
I may or may not have almost cried out of happiness. Unpopular opinion, but I think the game's graphics are actually fine.>>108324
They might bring two characters from RF4 in, like how they brought Raven and Barrett back! Probably won't be able to marry them, though.
Ah yes, I played TWAU and I loved it (and I would kill for the sequel omg). I haven't heard of the Shadowrun games, I'm gonna check them out, thanks!>>108552
I heard of this but never actually played it, I'll give it a look, thank you!
I loved that game. I mean, not like it's a masterpiece, but I enjoyed it from the beggining to the very end.
So anons, if you need a vampire game, this one is a good vampire game.
Good luck, anon!
The eshop has some decent sales in the US right now. I'm just glad they haven't shut it down yet.
It's getting more and more difficult to get some physical copies of games depending on the series and how popular they are, don't hesitate to get an sd card so you can buy games on the eshop like >>108673
What are genre you like? The 3DS is really good if you like JRPGs, even if Pokemon games aren't the best on this console (XY is ok but too easy even for this series, and either go get Sun/Moon or UltraSun/Moon but not both) there's a shit ton of Megami Tensei/Atlus games (originals and remasters), Fire Emblem is really good too (be careful if you play FE Fates, there's three very different versions of the game and the Revelation version/route is dog shit while Birthright and Conquest are both very good) and there's Bravely Default and Bravely Second if you like older turn-based FF games. You'll also be able to get into the Ace Attorney series, which is amazing too, especially the first three games, but they're digital only in the West.
>>108712>I already have a physical copy of SMT4
Good, it's such a good game.As for SMT4 Apocalypse, it improves SMT4's gameplay a lot thanks to many small QoL changes so I recommend it too, but keep it for after you're done with SMT4 because otherwise it's gonna make SMT4 less appealing.
Speaking of FE Fates, don't worry too much if you see people calling it shit online, it's typical fandom war bullshit. Everyone's opinion was biased back when it was announced and then released because of the shitty localization/censorship and how you have to buy each route separately. The localization IS pretty fucking bad but the game isn't unplayable because of it and you'll get the gist of the story despite the characters being
OOC very often, and the routes/versions are all so different from each other that they feel way more like separate games than, say, Pokemon games from the same generation, or even FE3H on the Switch which was praised for having 4 different routes but they're all 99% similar to each other (except a hidden route that's like 98% the same instead). Then you'll se way too many people saying that the game is shit just because of the story (the lows and really low and the highs are really good especially if you like the characters) but they'll never mention how good the gameplay or level design are, many shit on the game after watching let's plays on youtube only.
And for Ace Attorney I think there are remasters or ports of the DS games and sequels so you can get the full main series. If you like them and ever get the chance to play Ghost Trick, do it. It's one of the best games I've ever played. It's on the DS, idk how hard it is to get copies in the USA (gonna guess that's where you are because you can get a physical copy of SMT4 unlike me) but if you can get one and you don't have a DS you can just play it on the 3DS, like I said earlier in the thread.

I'm really interested in the new Tomb Raider trilogy. I like good adventure/exploration like Assassin's Creed and Naughty Dog titles. Would this satisfy someone with that taste? Would it be wise to just buy the 2013 game and feel it out or would anyone here like to enable me into impulse-buying all 3? kek

Any No Man's Sky fan here? I've been loving the game since day one when it was still controversial, but I just loved the vibe of being alone in space, ever since the release it just kept on getting better and better and free update that was just announced is mindblowing. It's such an amazing redemption story and I'm so excited to play it again later today!
Haven't played but it really is amazing they turned that game around.
I really expected the devs to abandon ship and move on after a year or two.

I'm so hyped for DA4 and seeing egg boi being anti hero antagonist.
Blows my mind to see what Bioware did with DAI in 2014, even though it had flaws. My hopes are high

I hate him but love him as a character, punching him as a qunari woman was so good. Shutting him off in the Trespasser DLC is also the funniest shit ever. Imo egg wolf is going to be the best villain in all of the DA games

i've found the one i want
He looks like the bastard lovechild of snoke and squidward.
I COMPLETELY ignored and forgot about him in my playthrough. Thought he was a background character. Imagine how puzzled I was when creepymcfuckface pops up in the final DLC. Legit thought he was a new character introduced just for the DLC.
bruh what? how shit is your attention span? there's a pretty big twist in the main story involving solas. >>109072

Thread turned into egg bashing, love that. Solas gives me a weird Alan Rickman vibe; you think he's ugly at first, but then he opens his mouth and you think of him as more attractive
Louis from The Council works the same for me

there is no accounting for shit taste
If thats shit taste i dont wanna have good taste
I love origins the most too! i had played skyrim and other rpgs already but when i started knowing nothing about it, it hooked me up so quickly, everything was good from the characters, story, choices, battle and music. I loved that i had to pause and actually think about what the characters were doing in combat and with work i could make almost any party combination work. I do think the graphics are very dated but thats not really important to me, just 10/10 one of my favorite games and i wish the sequels were more like it.
If you havent played it baldurs gate is cool in that old d&d rpg way too anon!
Origins is hands down one of the RPGs with most choice in the history of gaming, you can solve every quest like 4+ different ways.
Sure it can be a little generic fantasy world but thats minor compared to the sheer repeatability and complexity of the quests and dialog.
It depends on what exactly you liked more about it, but i think you might enjoy inquisition too?
If the main draw to you is combat, origins combat is more tedious and requires you to pause and strategize, it feels more like realistic combat where you could die if you're a dumb bitch while inquisition can be more button mashy and give you that feeling of being powerful, and the magic is really beautiful lmao.
When it comes to story origins is a "closed" world with more focus on lore, choices and roleplaying, while inquisition is open world with many sidequests and you can tune out a good part of the "side" story if it makes no difference to you and only follow the main storyline to know what is happening.
Samefag, that really clarified nothing huh
imo origins combat is way different, its slower and can be boring if you dont like pausing and strategy, but i would still recommend you to try it if thats not a deal breaker, and inquisition if more fast paced and open world with beautiful scenery is more your vibe. Maybe try to wait for it to go free/on sale or torrent and buy after if you like it?>>109182

Just look up how the sentiments are now, after the dev releasing free updates for 4 years now. I hope you'll have an opportunity to try it out! It's really enjoyable and there's so much variety between different planets now. Sorry for a poorly made photo of a screen, but here is a cool planet i've discovered yesterday, overgrown with meadows of luminescent grass. And I'm on PS4, it probably looks even better on PC.
>>109342> so long as you use what's between your ears you can finish DA games even on nightmare difficulty
But why would I even want to? I have actual stuff going on in my life.
IDGAF about playing games that are no fun to me, anon. There are too many better suiting me titles that I could play in the meantime that I enjoy on boty gameplay and plot level. I recommend you to do the same.
