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.
File: 1600370162640.jpg (62.6 KB, 700x700, 095834097636.jpg)
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.
File: 1600452965078.jpg (36.45 KB, 340x255, 7084372543.jpg)
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?

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.

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.

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.

I recently played this new horror game called Phasmophobia with my friends. You're basically playing as ghost hunters going to different locations using various gear and even your own mic and voice to talk to and aggravate the ghosts. You then get paid based on how much evidence you could gather and can level up and buy more gear.
For such a cheap game it was wonderfully immersive. My heart was racing several times even when nothing was happening. Having your friends call out to you through the radio yelling for you to get out since they see something coming for you on the cameras, doors slamming shut and locking in front of you while you try to hide - I loved the experience so much. Definitely recommend if you enjoy horror games.
I've already played the game (I mean, the 4h preview for early reviews in June) and it really does come together, although you have to be aware what's what exactly: lifepath is where you come from and will affect the prologue and dialogue choices if you choose to; and gangs are there and are important for the game but V is a freelancer and doesn't join any.
In general it depends what are you looking for but when it comes to writing, story and immersion, it will be amazing I'm sure.
You played it?? Please spill the tea on romance option, especially the female ones.
And does Jackie really die no matter what you do?
File: 1601563790676.jpg (973.61 KB, 4096x2304, Ei_QQyuWoAAB1Jd.jpg)
Can't say too much because I want to respect the NDA but options are there and definitely are more enjoyable than Witcher romances, few of them have already been introduced to the public actually, the one I find most interesting would be Nomad girl you can see next to female V on this screen, she's cool AF;>And does Jackie really die no matter what you do?
Yeah and it really sucks, his and V's interactions are so much fun you get to grow attached to this character within minutes. I already miss him
I preorded it back when it was supposed to be out in April and haven't watched anything since E3 because I don't want to get my hopes up too much. This is the kind of game where if you expect something and don't get it it can really ruin the experience even if it's still good overall.
Almost here though. Too bad the new Destiny expansion drops at almost the same time.
As a longtime Destiny player myself I don't expect the new expansion to be any different to what we already got, you'll finish it in one evening without even trying too hard… unfortunately because I'd love this game to have more of a more cohesive story.
Are you more into PvP or PvE?

The House of Fata Morgana has always interested me but it got noticed by the troons for having the MC being transgender, so I was apprehensive about how the subject will be approached; turns out he was just born hermaphrodite raised as girl, and grows into a male body after puberty. Anyone thought about the game if they have played it? I've read it's like 30 hours worth of playtime..
By non-combat Rpg elements, I mean things you can do outside of stealth/combat that are also determined by your Character's stats.
For example: Being able to perform a complex surgery on an npc because your Medical skill is really high, convincing an enemy to surrender because your Speech skill is decent, or being unable to find a clue at a crime scene because your Investigation skill is too low. Stuff like that.

I'd to see 2b from Nier Automata in smash, they could even have 9s and A2 as clone characters. They'd probably need to do a redesign so her underwear doesn't show though.
One problem is that there will probably be some smash fans disliking her because they assume she's another generic anime-style swordswoman like the fire emblem characters.

Thank you! I'm loving this game so far. Definitely going to keep it going. The Ice prince is my favorite so far
File: 1601976452913.jpg (246.57 KB, 1080x1080, fischl.jpg)
Nta, but Fischl is my favourite as well. I thought I was going to dislike her, because the drawn portrait looked like scrote waifu shit, but her in game model is more appealing and her personality is kind of soothing to me (idk why). I also like Xiangling, Kaeya and Barbara.
I've been playing the game since release, but I don't know what I'm doing half of the time kek. I love it, though, and I like the fact that you play alone. The japanese voice acting is on point, and I'm actually reading the story, which I thought I would skip like in most MOBAs/MMOs.
And, one more thing, the fact that u don't have to spend hours playing the game to do something is very relaxing. The OST and scenery are gorgeous too.

I really don't get troons' obsessions with gender identity and shit like that, whenever they see a crossdressing character they go "omg trans representation slay queen" like it's the only thing that matters to them in a story.
I've summoned Venti and a few of Fischl, luckily enough! They're two of my faves but I would love to get Diluc and Mona as well. Would also take a Keqing. I'm thinking of saving my Primogems for Zhongli & Childe now though I don't know when they'll come out. It is rumored to be for next patch on the 12th though I think.

Been playing for hours a day! I haven't really been bothered by the gacha part of the game, mainly because it's a single menu that doesn't pop up, however one of my friends said it starts to bug you about it around rank 30 or something? Fingers crossed that isn't the case. I did the beginner gacha and got 2 characters out of it so I'm satisfied for now. I tend not to get the urge to spend real money on in-game shit.
My current favorite character is Qiqi! I don't have her but my bf does and she runs around all cute lol. Fingers crossed I pull Mona someday, an upcoming witch girl. I also like playing as Lisa, her attacks are pretty strong when fighting jelly creatures.
I find some of the localization text in the game pretty hilarious, like the NPC named Ella Musk.
This reminds me of the New Genesis update for Phantasy Star Online 2, it's looking like it's going to be open world like Genshin.
What do you like specifically about her playstyle anon? Sucrose is one of the characters I really want so I'm eager to hear someone sing her praises lol.>>111025>it starts to bug you about it around rank 30 or something?
What did your friend mean? That the game tells you to buy gacha pulls and stuff? I'm AR35+F2P and haven't seen anything like that unless I missed something or am misunderstanding?
Also Mona is available in the gacha pool as we speak but I'd save up for a rate up banner she's on just to make sure you have the highest chance of pulling her!
Actually, you're right, I just didn't want the pearl clutchers to yell at me for liking PROBLEMATIC

An entire PC/PS5/whatever the upcoming xbox is called remake of Chinatown Wars would be great TBH, it's such a travesty this dude was relegated to a handheld console game almost nobody remembers
Fuck anon, I googled this game this morning and haven't stopped playing it since. Good thing I got Venti on my 3rd roll because I have no self control and I really wanted him from the beginning of the game.
Also joining the Ice Prince fanclub!

Her attacks are perfect for dealing with huge crowds of enemies and they do ALOT of damage even if the cooldown is one of the highest in game, her ult on top of doing massive damage also does elemental damage if the enemies use elemental powers, she’s so much better than Lisa but the cooldown requires you to move around alot and focus more o dodging than attacking which is very different from most Genshin characters because they tend to be very offensive.

Hiya. I asked about the new Tomb Raider trilogy in this thread several days ago. Since then I've bought all 3 and have really been enjoying them, so I'm really interested in playing some of the older games in the franchise now. Anyone have recommendations where to start? I've never touched them though I know all about the OG game from watching my brother play it years ago. I admit I'm the shallow kind of gamer who's not super forgiving of outdated graphics but I'm willing to be convinced.

Is saya no uta good? I really like visual novels and edgy shit but there's a lot of dumb scrote stuff in a lot of 'em. I know it has sexual content but does anyone know if it actually makes sense in the story or if it's just for coombrains to jack off to?
I think the sexual content was forced by marketing (correct me if I am wrong). It is a part of the plot and is disturbing/gross (there is mindbreak and rape happening in one scene
) but the game is not heavy on the sex content. Play the visual novel if it interests you, you will probably enjoy it. The sex scenes could have been edited out tbh or presented in a more tame way. They add to the plot a bit, but this is the kind of game that anyone will play for plot and not porn. It has good writing.

Do virtual pets count as viddie? If so, been considering getting one of these lil doodads for a bit. Kinda conflicted over whether or not I should get a Digimon or a Tamagotchi too.
Sage for my unprompted review of an edgy visual novel. I just bought it and played the whole thing in one go. I really liked the writing and I love weird biological science-y horror stuff so I did enjoy it a lot. The sex stuff was very retarded and I fucking hated that mindbreak
thing but it didn't make me ragequit or anything lol. It really wasn't anywhere near as disturbing as I was expecting and as people hyped it up to be, however. The main thing that bothered me was the dumb treatment of female characters but I guess that's to be expected lol.

So, after 3 years of good use, my left nintendo switch joy-con is borderline unusable. I had a long run without any issues but I guess the daily dose AC:NH pushed this thing over the edge. I tried to fix it with cleaning underneath the rubber skin, which made it a bit better but it still does what it wants and since I want to go back to play other games, I kind of debate on how to solve this problem because it is really annoying.
Any anons that had the same issue: What did you do? Did you fix it on your own? Let it fix because of technical issues or just got new ones?
And another thing that annoys me but maybe it's just my personal preference: The color variations of the joy-cons is SO ugly. I do have the grey ones because anything else is eye-cancer imo but looks like there no chance to get my hands on a pair of brand new grey joy-cons where I live …

I'm one of the very few people who likes playing as Amber. I love her lil bunny bomb and now fighters are my favourite since I love sneak attacks. She's adorable.
She's considered bad? Casuals can't aim or something? Attacking from range is totally useful.
I'm surprised by how fun this was for the little I tried, but not sure if it will hold up once I finish the current story.

For this lovely october I recommend World of Horror to fans of:
>pixel style from the 1st computers
The encounters are randomized, which makes some combos and PCs hard to find. It's in early access, and i think the final product will look good.
This game also remainds me of Daymare Town games, both in style and ambience.

There are rumours now that Demon Souls will be released for PS4 as well so I wouldn't have to get a PS5 if that's the case. Considering different retailers including one close to me actually has it available for preorder for PS4 and PS5, I'm suspecting the rumours are correct this time. And I do hope they are.
File: 1602742721374.jpg (109.19 KB, 1280x720, ps.jpg)
i found a stack of these at my local target for $5 each. Digimon is fun, but if you want something a bit more exciting get one of the newer Tamagotchi with the color screens!
I have a Ps and it's very fun, there's also an English mod for it and mod characters you can raise and transfer via NFC, but the NFC is very specific, you would need a phone that is compatible with it. I managed to snag a compatible docomo phone for like $50 and was totally worth it.
There's also the officially English Tamagotchi On you can grab. Definitely still fun and cheaper, but there's a possibility you may have to buy two to unlock the sports plaza, unless you know someone else with an On or if you don't really care for that feature.

I've played Higurashi as anons in the anime thread advised, and it's SO GOOD, much better than the original anime! Having an insight to the protagonist inner thoughts makes the story much better; and in general the writing and slowly building up tension is fantastic.
Apparently first chapter is available for free everywhere (GOG, Steam) so I recommend it to everyone in these spooky halloween times, took me 8h to finish so it really is a treat to get something like this for free.
Music is really great and Kei's paranoia about his friends is so contagious, in the latter part of the game every time he had some one on one interaction Rena I felt so tense, even if nothing happened

This is a long shot, but does anyone know any games that also teach something useful? Trying to improve myself without totally giving up my main hobby/vice. I've played so many games and end up learning tons of knowledge that's pointless in the real world, like I don't need to know what type of pokemon beats another or where to shoot a monster to take it down quickly in the day to day lol.
The only games I can think of like this are those stupid typing games, where you have to improve your typing speed/accuracy to beat levels. I guess I could also put Civilization into this category, in that you can at least end up learning about real history and cultures by proxy when playing.
So, yeah. Any "learning games" you guys know of that are also actually fun?

This might possibly even belong in the unpopular opinions thread, but I really love Ubisoft games specifically the Far Cry and the Assassins creed series, I know a lot of people shit on them cause of the samey gameplay but to me the gameplay is serviceable I just always end up loving the stories, the characters, the setting and the Music
Thus far my favorite games have been Far Cry 4, Far Cry 5 and Assassins Creed odyssey
also Joseph and Jacob Seed could both like get it from me
File: 1602995421040.jpeg (61.07 KB, 468x457, JKNq0jd.jpeg)
4 was alright 5 was more fun but for me 3 is best. Vaas got me to follow Micheal Mando's roles. I don't buy into the theory the new game trailer kid is him but if true some high rez shots of him would be just divine my thirst has no bounds.
Probably not that unpopular on an imageboard with mostly women, as the AC and Far Cry Games usually attract a big female audience. I played all Far Cry games and probably spent the most time with Far Cry 5 + the DLC New Dawn. Far Cry 5 was just very well told and really immersive for me. It is not the best story ever, but they are doing something right with their usual tale of being a novice/Rookie that ends up at a hostile place and morally decays throughout the story. And their antagonists usually are really cool and likable in a twisted way. I get that 3 is a classic and Vaas is one of the best characters in mainstream games, but I really loved Joseph and the story about his cult. Also their (way too realistic) vision of burgerland.
The last AC I played was Origins and while I enjoyed that, the game was way too long and the map too big. I felt burnt out after it and so far it stopped me from playing Odyssey. I don’t really care about Vikings so I am not sure if I will get the new one.
>>112092> as the AC and Far Cry Games usually attract a big female audience
nta but why?
That would be really disappointing if true as those games are trash and the company turned to shit a long time ago.
nta while these 2 series do attract a large female audience they're still not close to a female majority, the AC series fandom was overweeningly male p until AC5 but for a number of reasons one of them being female characters becoming more prominent members in the story, more women started taking part, this is true especially after Odysseus
and Far Cry 5 had really hot dudes

lately, i’ve had 0 patience to play any game except for princess maker 2. i love raising my bitch of a daughter
Specially considering how (implied) sexual abuse is such a big theme in the game, and ofc, the abuse 'adults' put teens through, I would say a female MC with some changes here and there might make even more sense than a male MC. I understand that's a lot of effort required tho.
I really can't see why they didn't give us a male romance option too, Atlus knows that a huge part of it's fanbase are fujos, and it wouldn't take that much effort at all.

There was speculation that Ellison had a hand in Mitsoda leaving, but that doesn't seem as likely now.
Did both of them just do such a shitty job on the game that they got canned, or is this some company bullshit?

Is it still worth it to read Umineko in 2020? I've read the first four arcs, I already know all the spoilers and who the culprit is, and from what I've understood none of the shit that you read really happened and were just metaphors and stories created by Sayo or Battler, which sounds incredibly frustrating to me, but do the narration and flavor text make up for it? I got into it way back then with the shitty 2009 anime mostly for the cool designs and fantasy shit, but I saw an idiot on Twitter going "Umineko has always been political, it's a story about gender identity crisis and capitalism=bad, if you thought it was about witches then you are a dumbass", which does not really encourage me to read any more of it (tbf anitwitter tends to overblow the importance of this kind of themes).

I've got really into Paradise Killer, and I finally finished it over the weekend. It's this thoroughly weird open-world investigation game with vaporwave aesthetics that has nice Ace Attorney/Dangonronpa vibes… I'm a sucker for a good mystery/detective game and this kept me obsessed for like 25 hours of active playtime lol. The soundtrack slaps, too.
Are you high, or have you not read the fuckng news once in 2020, anon? The coronavirus pandemic has wrecked entire industries and bogged down so many businesses and projects globally this year, it's no wonder a major game like Cyberpunk got delayed. I'd maybe entertain this "it must be shit if it's delayed before release" idea if it was any other year, but the industry is already known for its deadly crunch scheduling and overall shittiness to dev teams' health and personal wellbeing. >>113289
is right, you can wait a month or even a whole year more for a sodding video game. The entitlement… fucking hell.
This, entire studio is in the home office mode, it really impairs communication and how fast the things can progress, in a way that is hard to really predict since no one in the management was in a situation like this before.
It is really bad PR-wise though, and missing this year's game awards is going to most likely cost Cyberpunk GOTY in 2021 since people will already move on to a different game within entire year passing, no matter how good it's gonna end up being. Either way, sending hate on twitter to developers is fucked, no matter how disapppointed some gamers are.

Jesus dude, no need to talk to me like I'm retarded. There's a reason I started by saying I'm certain the base game is good. I say red flags because there's obviously a shitton of miscommunication going on between the devs and the execs, like how they only tend to find out about delays online rather than internally. Or how just the day prior to this latest announcement, CDPR Twitter swore that there would be no more delays. Decisions are clearly being made without the consultation of everyone involved. It's not about me whining about wanting to play a game sooner rather than later.
I would have used smaller words if I thought you were retarded… dude.
It's one thing to be a bit sad you can't play the game you're looking forward to when you thought you were going to get to do so, and it's another thing entirely to call a pretty fucking understandable dev delay "red flags".
Not those anons, but it’s fun to play when everyone is actually into playing the game and you get to fool them when you’re the impostor.
I particularly enjoy it when people listen to me and start kicking whoever I think might be the impostor when I’m the only impostor left.
NTOA but playing it with friends is peak for fun for me, it's just so fun to have a game where half the time you're muted but still has a shit tonne of communication and memorisation.
When not playing with friends, you can find really funny ppl in lobbies, also really annoying people you can piss off.
you get to gaslight children. jk but i generally like games like Clue, or games of deduction. and it's real people like >>113422
said. idk why that aspect makes it more fun. you develop certain tactics when imposter. for example, i like to sabotage the lights then go into medbay, wait until lights are fixed, and vent into electrical to kill someone who started doing their tasks in upper electrical. then vent into security and be on cams to look natural. i'd love to know other people's tactics

File: 1604139711432.jpg (1.25 MB, 3840x2160, Sekiro™_-Shadows-Die-Twice_201…)
Thanks to it's recent update I finally started playing Sekiro, and jesus am I bad at this game! I need to get rid of my SoulsBorne habits (i.e. lots of dodging) and be more agressive in my play style, which is exactly what the game entices you to do. I feel that it requires some good hand-eye coordination and a fast reaction time, which I'm kinda lacking. I fear I won't be able to enjoy the game to its full extent, I'm already struggling against Lady Butterfly (admittedly the easiest boss in the game), I'm fearing the fights against really hard opponents like the headless, the Monk or the demon of hatred. I hope I'll get better, because I love the setting, the stealth elements are very enjoyable and the direction is flawless. I already knew how the hide-and-seek scene with the giant snake was going, but merely watching it and actually playing it is totally different, I was holding my breath the whole time.
You'll get it eventually, anon.
The downside is that you'll need to relearn those twitch dodge instincts when you go back to a Souls game.
i watch youtube videos that solve them, or just follow along without trying to decode anything because they're really entertaining. this one is about a public access station that is very….troubling. i don't wanna spoil it!
my all time favorite is trible twelve. i should have rewatched it this halloween season. it's really long but i couldn't get enough. you can look up NightMind's TribeTwelve explained videos..there's a lot.
i feel like i stumbled upon one on tiktok? it's just so absurd i can't believe it. the person's username is kylenred. he basically escapes a psych ward and it's a whole trip. it could be real though it's pretty convincing.
lastly, /r/arg is really cool to explore
I agree anon, it's really not a type of game to be played on handheld. I tried the Fire Emblem one back when I got my Switch Lite and just couldn't even finish it bc of how it was such a hassle>>113501

I've just finished third chapter of Higurashi and damn, what a ride it was. I legit skipped work to finish it because I couldn't wait to find out more. Initially I wasn't really hyped to start as Satoko is least likeable from the entire cast but that story was insane; to the point I wonder if the series hasn't just peaked with it. I'm eager to continue though and once again, I really really recommend to anyone into horror stories.
For the ones of you who finished the series, plz no spoilers though: is it the best chapter or am I in for more treat in the future?

Bought Dragon Age Origins last weekend and I've already clocked over 40 hours on it. I can't believe I've waited this long to play it. The story and world are so engaging and perfectly up my alley. But there is
something cozy about playing older games for the first time.
I wish I had waited a bit longer though to snap up the Ultimate edition so I don't have to deal with installing the DLC piecemeal.
Also I want to bully Alistair. I'm not normally into puppy-dog/vanilla archetypes but whew, they really nailed something right about his self-deprecation.>>113583>>113501
At first glance, I was mega hyped because I thought it was Akihiko Yoshida's art, too, but it's actually by the FF14 artist, Kazuya Takahashi (not a bad artist by any means–just preference). Makes me wonder why the fuck isn't Yoshida on the Bravely Default II if he's not the FF16 artist.

They'll add more content on 11/11 but it won't be a new region. They'll end the 1st act and add some things related to exploring Liyue and Mondstadt (the Reputation quests).
Honestly, I just want more events. I'm trying to save the Liyue storyline for later (so I have something to do while we wait for update 1.2.) and right now I need events to distract myself.
Will you roll for Childe? I love his tropes ("househusband" + big brother) but I don't really like the other rate up characters on his banner… sigh.
I got the monthly blessing thing bc it was so cheap but I havent wished on anythy outside the Beginners Banner yet because I started after the Venti one was over and honestly other than him I'm really not that interested in any of the 5s in game, I will either try for Zhongli or Xiao, the only problem is that I dislike the 4
s supposedly on Zhongli's banner.>>114353
Me too anon, I'm taking it slow with the story for now, there's really no need to rush. You see all these Youtubers who are on AR45 or something bored out of their minds bc they rushed the game and its like ??? duhh??
Also, honestly I cant wait to see what seasonal events will look like, I really want seasonal clothing for the Traveler.

>>114358>not liking wolf boy.>not liking any 5s.
Honestly, I'm curious. Almost everyone has a 5-star character they like.
Which characters do u have in your party?
On the contrary, anon, I love Razor, its just that I already have him at C3 because I got pretty Lucky on the wishes I did and would rather get a new cryo/anemo character.
My team right now is basically Traveler, Xiangling, Barbara and Razor. I Will probably swap Traveler for the free Fischl we Will get, and I know Chongyun could be a good cryo support for him but it bothers me that he's also a claymore.
As for the 5*s, other than maybe Qiqi, none of them fills the role that I want for my team, I guess? Qiqi and Venti were the only ones that I sort of wanted and Venti was limited and the fact that Qiqi's burst heal depends on attacking an enemy bothers me bc I feel like I mostly heal when I'm far away from enemies after Razor's burst ends, on that sense I just feel like Barbara suits me better. From what I've seen from Jean I really really dislike her, she seems so boring to play, Diluc seems cool but I just dont understand the hype around him (I also think he's kind of ugly), I dont really like mages or hydro as an element so Mona is ehh, Keqing seems cool enough but shes another electro DPS and honestly I think Razor is just better. Also, I can tell I would bem really shit at using Klee just by the test they let us play.
I'm interested on Zhongli and Xiao but still unsure they are worth it.
File: 1604827818603.jpg (130.6 KB, 924x1112, IMG_20201107_204312.jpg)
Swapping Traveler with the free Fischl is a good idea. I have her on my team alongside Xingqiu, Venti and Xiangling and she practically takes down all of the enemies thanks to Oz and the elemental reactions. Having two Electro users also gives buffs to your team, so yep, good choice.
Chongyun is also good at creating elemental reactions, I think he can make an AoE with one of his skills that deals constant Cryo damage through normal and charged attacks (from all characters). You shouldn't be bothered about him being a Claymore user, since you need at least two of them to win Abyss (you have to make two teams for the later stages) and he seems to be a good sub-carry.
I'm no expert and I'm kind of parroting some things I heard on the net, but at the end of the day I think anything is fine as long as you're comfortable with your team. This isn't a PvP game after all.
Agree, but after playing his side story/legendary mission I have a soft spot for him. I don't know how the 3D artists fucked up so bad his face, like, he looks good in the manga and other promotional art… ugh.
>shit at using Klee
Also agree. I don't like mages either, they are kind of slow and I don't get their gameplay. I prefer melee weapons.>>114398
Yes! It's nice the game gives you free characters, right now I have Kaeya as my Cryo slave until I get Chongyun. They are easily outclassed by other characters, though.
This game panders a lot more to men than to women, but at least they'll give us 3 adult men + 4 boys per region. It's true there are more girls, but at least it's something. The only complain I have is that I would like to see a little more variation personality wise.

I'm so pumped for Childe, initially I thought I'm gonna drop Genshin after a few weeks but then they pleasantly surprised me with playable villains. I'll try to get all the Harbingers and comp a 100% villain team just for the lore purposes. I hope down the line they'll give us more interaction between characters, banter or reactions to our mains by NPCs.
You can really see the scrotery of the fanbase by all of those complaints about "having nothing to do". Yeah bitch there's lots to do if you don't bang out 30 ARs daily and skip the entire story just to get a muh strong character. Grinder games have really destroyed the ability to enjoy single player games in some. I'm AR 42 and just finished the story a couple days ago.
I am comfortable spending money down the line but only if really interesting characters come through. Hopefully after the current husbando update they'll put up a string of featured cliche anime girls to pander to males and it'll give me some time to save.
Razor is my main he's just so cute! I finally looked at an artifacts guide and thank gosh I did because his damage is immense now. I usually use Barbara to soak and then use Razors elemental attack, one shots a lotta enemies.
Anyone use Ninguang? I think she's underrated as heck.

Agree, a lot of people "speedrunned" this game and started to complain about the lack of content too soon. Tinfoil, but I think they purposefully added the resin system and less content not only to gain more money, but to stop people from playing too much. I've heard too many horror stories about Asian hardcore-MMO-players dying at cybercafes because they were addicted to playing and all that shit. I think the devs want to avoid that, kek.
>I'll try to get all the Harbingers and comp a 100% villain team
Ooh, that's a super cool idea. I love when people plan original team compositions. Right now, mine looks like a Power Rangers team (?).
>Hopefully after the current husbando update they'll put up a string of featured cliche anime girls to pander to males and it'll give me some time to save.
Next banner after Childe is Zhongli. They'll probably release Ayaka after that, but people speculate Xiao will be featured in February (next after Ayaka). It's very difficult to save gems right now, at least for me…
Anyway, good luck on your rolls! I hope you get Childe. Here, have a summoning circle to channel your luck.
Aaah, I was playing this game two months ago but got busy with uni and had to stop. I should start playing again.
Probably unpopular opinion, but I hate the OST except for this track. Sometimes I would put my DS down and search for something on my computer, and this was the only track I could stand being played on loop kek. At least, it didn't give me a headache.

I'm really considering buying an either 3DS or 2DS since I've been wanting it forever and I would like to get it over with.
I'm even considering getting pic related, since it's the cheapest.
Do you have any advice for me, anons? I'm wondering which version of the console is objectively the best. Will I miss a lot if I don't buy the 3D version of the console? I sort of want to experience it, but not sure if it's worth paying extra money…
Is the version in pic related completely shit? If one of the more expensive 3Ds/2Ds is much better, I can just wait. It would be nice to finally be able to play all the games that I've missed out on!
I'm torn between getting the full experience and not overpaying for gimmicks that I will not use everyday…
File: 1604913903324.jpg (101.98 KB, 1425x1188, 716 Ui40HcL._AC_SL1500_.jpg)
I personally never touched the 3ds option on mine while playing. I would also suggest new 2DS instead, the pic you posted seems uncomfortable to use. I hope more anons chime in though
Thank you, anons! I'm considering buying used with CFW preinstalled (since there is mostly used 2DS/3DS available anyway).
I'm torn between getting 2DS XL or 3DS XL. Neither is in the color that I would like to get (pink), but I guess that's life.
I am still slightly considering getting 2DS as well since I can get it super cheap, but I'm worried about how difficult it will be to install CFW. I'm sort of lazy and worried about messing it up…

The model will be censored, but you can (kind of) see her panties. I don't like playing with Noelle/Barbara/Keqing because it's uncomfortable seeing their ass all the time, even though they have thights to cover their underwear… Thank god only 3 (now 4) characters have a skirt.

also, do any of you recognize what cfw is this? a pawnshop is selling this pink 2DS with games preinstalled. I assume the console is hacked. I can't ask the seller since they don't know shit about the item.

I'm a huge soulsborne fan too, granted I prefer Bloodborne over DS series, so I started playing Sekiro and I really sucked at it. I dropped it after I barely managed to defeat Lady Butterfly. I wanted to get back at it for the same reasons you mentioned so thanks for reminding me. I have no idea what makes it so much harder for me to adjust to the new game mechanics but I also like how FromSoft is trying new things. I've noticed that they were kind of out of inspiration with DS3.
Thanks, anon. I will skip on that one most likely.
I've seen the tutorial and it looks quite complicated! And there is the issue of getting a DS with a firmware that is hackable - apparently not all of them are? I need to look into this more tbh.
I've seen some guide stating that you need to buy a game via the online store to hack the DS. Hope it's outdated information lol.
I totally understand how you feel…
said, you kind of signed for it the moment you started playing a game marketed as "BoTW but anime". Male weebs are insufferable, but is easy to avoid them if you don't go to 4chan or Discord. Just stick to the yume/otome part of the fandom on Twitter, the lolicon apologism is not as strong there.
DS anon checking back again. I ended up buying prehacked New 2DS XL like >>114587
suggested. Sadly, it's not pink! Oh well, my Switch is neither and I enjoy it nonetheless.
Now I have to figure out how to put games on the SD card with Luma CFW.
Do you guys have any recommendations for any weird and wonderful games? Games that most people are unaware of but that are special and unforgettable.
I obviously plan to play Animal Crossing, all the Zeldas, Pokemon (especially Detective Pikachu), maybe Kingdom Hearts if I have nothing better to do (since the plot is bullshit). I will be happy to hear your suggestions!
File: 1605025094646.jpg (99.4 KB, 768x768, Ever-Oasis.jpg)
It's not exactly obscure but maybe Ever Oasis might be fun for you. It's an action/adventure jrpg from the guy who created the Mana series where you also build and tend to a little desert village.
Anon, one niche series for the 3DS that I absolutely love and spent a stupid amount of hours on is Style Savvy. I know its technically just a dress up game but it's surprisingly so complex and fun. Also, if you're into VNs theres a translated Hakuoki game for the 3DS that I've heard has a great story.>>114683
God, me too, anon. Like anons said, it is a little bit unavoidable bc even if Genshin itself doesnt have that much fanservice (honestly I dont think it does, the only thing really is the upskirts shots while gliding and a few character designs, everything else is pretty ok), Mihoyo is a company that got famous bc of their fanservice yuri game. I think that sort of image is one they are actively trying to move past from bc all the story focus so far has been on male characters so hopefully in the future we have to deal with less scrotes.
Seconding Rune Factory 4!!!!!
Also, Fantasy Life. Aaah, I want to play them again…

The Wonderful 101 is even harder than Bayonetta if you want good scores and the QTEs are even worse. It's not even a bad game, it's just stressful for some reason. I'm only at the beginning of the game though, I guess I'll get better at it but so far I'm mostly playing it because I want to see more of Luka and his shitty, depressing backstory, and the main character is cute.

Suffered through the edgy bullshit that was DmC this is the most hamfisted politics bad shit ever. I'm not sure what was more annoying, the story shitting itself in excitement from another bad plot turn. Or the fact someone on staff thought 'rifle abortion' was a clever segue into an all out gunfight. Also for some reason the mom is an angel cept everyone calls her a whore for some reason? Everyone is deplorable in terms of character. The only person I remotely felt anything for was the demon Lilith for just how shittily the plot treated her.
File: 1605128927894.png (1.82 MB, 1684x1684, Diona.full.3124358.png)
Nonnies, I'm so excited that I actually got Diona in my first 10 wishes and I can go back to saving for Xiao. I mostly wanted her just because of how adorable she is and I'm not disappointed, hopefully I get Razor in the future to use them together because they apparently do really well together.
Good Luck on your Childe wishes for anyone who's going to try for him!!!

Not trying to shill but I actually kinda liked the level design in this game. I liked how colourful and dynamic the environments were and how they would sometimes physically change (like when you're running down that one hallway and it keeps on stretching). The gameplay was decent too imo it did what a hack and slash game is supposed to do. But yeah everything else was a travesty.
File: 1605138365230.jpg (54.17 KB, 640x455, sdfghjkl.jpg)
If you're talking about the fandom, it's probably a joke about how Capcom protagonists aren't allowed to have a stable romantic relationship and they have no kids either for some reason, unless explicitely plot relevant (see Ryu, Phoenix Wright whose daughter is super plot relevant, everyone in Resident Evil, etc). And then there's the fact that Dante's most popular pairing is with Vergil. I think in the first game Dante/Trish was meant to be the canon couple but since Kamoya only worked on the first game and made them a couple in Viewtiful Joe, but other devs worked on the rest of the series it's ambiguous because of how weird a guy dating his mother's clone is. Anyway, that's another topic.
As for the DmC developers sperging about Dante being gay in the original games, I guess they couldn't handle a strong, fun and handsome fictional male character who's trying to look kinda fashionable and not like a hobo like Donte, who also treats his female team mates as equals and with respect. Pic related is actually something the devs presented to show what "being cool and stylish" is and isn't.
File: 1605138526735.jpg (95.56 KB, 1024x533, marketing gone wrong.jpg)
samefag, here's more example of how to not market your shitty reboot towards an established audience.
thank god they weren't made canon, like you said she's a clone of his mom so yea weird fetish shit. Personally I liked his interactions with Lady far more >>114873
I'm fucking dying though at these. Like even the font is screaming insecure scrotes. And Dante fit perfectly with glam rock what are they on about. I think their best fuck up has to be at the start when a white wig falls on Dante and he acts disgusted. Should be in a presentation of "How to not market your game."
Yeah, the devs for DMC3 even said Dante's character design was specifically inspired by jrock band members or jpop idols, and that's why he looks young and is shirtless with perfect abs.
As for Dante/Trish, I dont know if it's some weird fetish shit, when you look at other Kamiya's games I guess you start wondering if this guy legit has mommy or daddy issues. Or maybe he thought he was writing some actual tragic romance with the Sparda/Eva parallel but in that case it really failed. Dante explicitely says he saved Trish the first time because she looks lile his mother, no other reason is mentioned like "you helped me at some point" or whatever. Who knows.

CHADyun is best Genshin boy, who works incredibly well with best Genshin girl Fischl.
>literally does nothing
>demons shit themselves and leave

I'm saving for Ayaka and it seems like it'll be a couple of months before her banner. Her design is way too cute. I need her.
I'm really not interested, I also have a long backlog like >>114989
, I'm not interested in more recent games of series I already like, or some of the series I like are dead or might as well be. I don't like the current state of video games, what's with companies neglecting level design and gameplay to focus on microtransactions and detailed graphics. I have my Switch and I'm putting it to good use, I don't need anything else that's more recent than that. And even then, the reason why I love my Switch is because of remakes and remasters. Same thing with my PSVita.
I actually don't plan on getting new consoles in a general way. If I'm ever bored and have a lot of free time I can just play what I have but never played, or replay one of the many games I have that I loved.

Its sad because i really like Noelle so i always have to switch to a different character when gliding.>>115060
From what i heard Mona is a pretty strong character, i really like her hat but not gonna lie im not much fan of the body suit.
I managed to get Childe in my second 10 pull! I think it might be the pity timer because last time i pulled i used all my wishes on the Venti banner but never got him sadly. Now i will save my wishes for geo husbando.
>>115062>i really like Noelle so i always have to switch to a different character when gliding.
seems like a lot of hassle just to avoid some animu panties/ass.
I'm impressed that you even bother

Thank you for the suggestion, it definitely has all reqs of the picky list I wrote. I've played all of them, the first one is my fave. Also Prey, SS1 and SS2. I love these games.
How is that a hassle you just have to hit 1 button to switch to a different character on your team?
I also switch when im running xiangling cuz the sound of her bells when she is running annoys me.
it's still an extra action you take because panties! Like I get it's cringe but why avoid it on purpose to that extend. It's not like you can see her vulva.
I guess I'm weirded out because it's something I would do as a young teenager with parents watching over my shoulder. Now I either don't play shit like Genshin Impact or don't care about fanservice beyond the first eye roll.
I just wanted to understand, sorry if I seemed judgy or nitpicky. I don't play Genshin Impact (even though I gave it a shot, but I don't think it's particularly interesting to me), but I played some games with that kind of issue and idc. Looking forward to playing Nier Automata once the price drops a bit more.>>115084
If I were that bothered by glimpses of 'teenager's ass' I would not play the game featuring it in the first place (or stick with different characters all the time).
I don't play GI because it seems like a generic animu time sinkhole and I'm not in the mood ATM.

Has anyone played Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin? Been following it for a while and it finally got released. Looks super cute and I'm weak for farming stuff like Harvest Moon, Rune Factory, etc so I assume I'll like it. Having the side scrolling/fighting aspect may be a nice way to break up some of the cozier tasks.
Ahh, I hope I can pull him on Zhongli's banner so much!! I love his design, he reminds me so much of Syoran, specially his idle animation.
Honestly, when will they release more story quests for 4* characters in Liyue?? I really liked Razor and Xiangling's. >>115062
Congratz, anon!!!! He seems pretty fun to play as, specially his close range mode. I thought his story quest was ok-ish, I was hoping for him to be a bit crazier.
On that note, am I the only one kind of pissed off that Zhongli just straight up gave his gnosis to the Fatui?? I understand that he probably has a motive (maybe for them to keep Liyue out of their plans in the future idk) but just allying with them felt like a betrayal to Venti. >>115094
Anon, I haven't yet but I cant wait until I have time to sink into it. I am also super weak for cute farming games.

Anon from >>114466
here. The summon circle from >>114536
worked and I got two Childes back to back! Now saving for my next evil Harbinger husbando.
If anybody's on fence on getting Childe then I can wholeheartedly recommend, not only for amazing VA but also he made the gameplay so fun I spent two past days just killing everything on sight. Scrotes obviously bitch that the cooldown is too long because they can't just spam the attack button but I actually enjoy how you have to keep alert between his bursts which literally delete anything. Also his story quest made me literally cry from adorableness, I am so glad they kept him a bloodthirsty psychopath but managed to sneak some fluff in.
Can we get some love for best boy Benny? He's the cutest thing in this game, I got him the other day and can't stop playing him. Love how he's so unlucky even his birthday is on 2/29.
File: 1605322502434.jpg (73.76 KB, 910x825, IMG_20201114_034923.jpg)
Omg it worked! I'm so glad anon!!!
I think Childe is a bit difficult to play if you are used to unga-unga DPS. Also, scrotes like to bitch about anything that involves cute guys. Notice how they drool over Ayaka, Ganyu and Klee, yet they bitch about Zhongli and Childe all the time. Talk about male fragility kek. Even Venti gets shit from time to time.
I'm glad you're enjoying him though! Let's hope they release more Fatui characters soon so you can make your dream team. Scaramouche is the next one, I think.
I love Bennett. He's so cute and kind. I'm trying to build him, though is taking some time… I like how he's concerned about your wellbeing and even tries to disuade you from joining his team… Benny… sob
In addition to being adorable, Benny is a laughably strong DPS character. If you play your cards right and give him a good attack/pyro bonus he does insane damage. When it comes to his skillset Fantastic Voyage heals the party members, gives them an attack bonus and cuts down his own elemental skill cooldown. People overlook him because of Diluc but in my opinion he's a must-have addition to a team.
I managed to roll Childe which I'm ecstatic about but I still have to learn his meta correctly. If anyone has some strategy suggestions I'm all ears. His elemental melee attack is amazing but has a ginormous cooldown and his bow usage is way below Venti's in my opinion.
>Notice how they drool over Ayaka, Ganyu and Klee, yet they bitch about Zhongli and Childe all the time. Talk about male fragility kek.
This. Scrotes can keep their garbage waifus and stay seething over the Archon story centering around hot men. They have an ocean of waifushit games at their disposal already, if they're so triggered
over women receiving fanservice they might as well go play those.

Diff anon and can vouch for the summoning circle as well. I'd like another dupe, since supposedly at c1 he is easier to play, but don't wanna risk getting Diona (very meh to me) or more Ningguangs.
Anyone else frustrated with the world exploration %? I do like knowing how much is done, but on the other hand it feels like I've been everywhere but my Mondstadt is only at 89% and Liyue even lower.

>>115139>Benny is a laughably strong DPS character.
He is a top tier character in the current meta, but he's not supossed to be a DPS, not even a sub DPS. He works better as a support. His stats can't compete with Razor or even Chongyun.
>I managed to roll Childe which I'm ecstatic about but I still have to learn his meta correctly. If anyone has some strategy suggestions I'm all ears. His elemental melee attack is amazing but has a ginormous cooldown and his bow usage is way below Venti's in my opinion.
Idk, haven't seen anything for him, but maybe there are guides on Youtube, Reddit or Mihoyo forums… What about bringing a sub DPS who can deal some damage while his skill recharges? Someone like Xiangling, Xingqiu, Ningguang…
I heard someone managed to build a Childe who could do 13034 damage with his bow though, but idk if it's true.>>115174>Anyone else frustrated with the world exploration %?
My Mondstadt is at 87%, and I'm missing some common chests uggggh. I need the recipe for that chest compass ASAP.

Nice! Don't forget about the Awakening DLC.
I know DA2 is a bit of a disappointment for many people (me included), but the story still is alright and important lore wise. Just keep in mind that it is widely known to be the weakest one out of the three
DAI is a must just for Patrick Weekes' amazing work on egg-boi character, who will play a heavy part on the upcoming DA4. DAI DLCs are all good imo, and one of them (Trespasser) is an actual necessity that brings closure to the game and foreshadows DA4
Anon, that's the way I always told myself I would lean on a second playthrough. Never did get around to it.
I'll join in the DAI appreciation but I have no faith in Bioware making a decent next chapter. When they scrapped the sequel in development several years ago allegedly to make it more multiplayer/live servicey, it was a massive sinking feeling.

Why does Sony hate money so much? I just want Demon's Souls on PC. Why must we continue to suffer like this?
Well if they REALLY want me to buy a ps5 they should actually restock it maybe
a little bit yeah, i'm especially salty that they removed rod of ages. i hope they add an option to change the old item art back like they did with the mouse, most of them look like some mobile game shit>>115653
god why, it's so cluttered. i just want to open the shop tab and see my builds
Please tell me so that I feel better for not having ps5. I hate seeing all these stellar reviews for demon souls but I don't want to cash out for ps5. I'm broke anyway.
it's just a texture upgrade, barely any new content and is unfaithful to the original in some instances.
i recommend just emulating demon souls assuming you have a decent modern processor. you can get 60fps
What kills me is that they baited the original fans by showing snowy mountains in the original trailer as if to say they are going to include the cut archstone. Of course they never said they would do it but they knew what they were doing.
I also hate how the soundtrack was reorchestrated, it went from creepy and atmospheric ambient to generic bombastic orchestra, it doesn't fit most of the boss fights at all (worst offender being Fool's Idol).
Love it, legit one of the best games I've ever played, spent about 30-40h soloing stuff, but as >>116257
said, it's the most fun played with others even if only through matchmaking, I have about 200h on my counter now. The story is wack and to be ignored, it's all about enjoying the gameplay and grind. A lot depends on the weapon you use so try out different ones, maybe something will actually work for you and make the game more enjoyable, otherwise if you don't enjoy mechanics at all, it's pointless to force yourself.

The Last of Us2 won a bunch of awards including best game and best story. I played through that garbage and it's as fake deep as it gets. It's just misery porn with the plot soaking it's panties over that troon Abby. I burst out laughing that Naughty Dog won best studio when they worked their devs to death and made them watch fucked live leaks so the gore wouldn't be 'sexy'

I hate the floaty combat and am scared Cyberpunk's is gonna be equally shitty.
I bought Sakuna. It's pretty good. I really like the exploration hack and slash type of gameplay, but I honestly don't like the rice farming system. The game really doesn't explain much, it just throws numbers at you. I don't have the physical version, but I heard it does come with a physical manual that goes into more details.
The gameplay is a big buggy, I'm certain there'll be some updates fixing graphical issues, such as how the shadows display on character models. It plays very similarly to a PS2 era game, so if you like how those games feel, definitely get it!

Wtf is wrong with me. I'm addicted to a pixel porn game where combat is rape. It's simple and repetitive, like a porn version of candycrush, but it makes me so fucking horny. I'm finallly a fucking coomer, just take me out back and shoot me.

Ah yes, pretending to care about female empowerment while you spout bigotry. Classic farmer.
>>116567>So did the first game but no one pooped their pants then.
The plot in the first didn't stop dead in it's tracks to suck a troon's dick nor tried justifying Joel while making the fireflys villains for trying to save what remained of the race. It's even framed as uncertain hope for Joel and Ellie moving forth. 2 knew their death of Joel was so poorly done they even hid the fact of how early on he dies by aging tv/trailer spots of flashbacks with Ellie >Which mechanics? Actual gameplay was great and improved from the first game.
There was little gameplay difference between the two 2 even dumbed it down further letting players coast what little was actual interaction with the infected there was. Even stupifying Clickers who were the main threat in one. >Okay, but it doesn't sound like you get what the plot was about.
You must be borderline retarded to think "Abby Gooood Ellie BAAD" plot is anything more than just misery torture porn. Ellie was continuously punished for the same actions Abby did. Going as far as forcing the player to kill her dog played with in flashback because "See SEE Ellie is bad!!" Rather than make Abby a functioning character beyond musclehead troon.>Ah yes, pretending to care about female empowerment while you spout bigotry. Classic farmer.
Better then simping for a coomer's torture porn fake deep game.
>>116569>suck a troon's dick
Abby is confirmed not a troon. Did you even play the game, or did you just skim through a no-commentary playthrough and fill on the gaps with outrage reactions?
Muscled-out military chick with believable anatomy to reflect that =/= troon. The only transperson depicted in this game is a FtM and given post-apocalyptic rape culture and religious fanaticism, that makes perfect sense. Of course then, a woman would want to be a man. Even Abby got buff because she knew she had to be that way to survive and get revenge, she wasn't that muscular in the flashbacks.
I like this game specifically because it throws out typical male gaze bullshit that weak ass girls with balloon tits somehow kick major ass in post-apocalypse worlds.
While I agree that the pacing of the game was thrown off from swapping between Ellie/Abby's plot, it doesn't mean the plot sucked.
>they even hid the fact of how early on he died by aging tv/trailer spots of flashbacks
Or that had to do with throwing people off the trail that Joel dies early in the game, not that they think it's bad in itself. Where do you even get that from?
>there was little gameplay difference
And here is where I don't know if your opinion should just be discarded because you clearly didn't play it, or at least couldn't be assed to watch videos of other people playing it to know. >dodge mechanic >unlimited knife mechanic >puzzle mechanics including guitar playing >new infected types>improved combat flow>jump and stealth >no enemy spawn and optional enemies
Even people who hate the plot agree that the gameplay and mechanics are way more fun in this one.
>you must be borderline retarded to think "Abby good Ellie BAAD"
I didn't day this and neither did the game if you were paying attention to it. Both characters redeem themselves of revenge in the end, but since you're stuck on "Abby WOOOOOOORRSE" you can't see what the game did.
>misery torture porn
Yeah I guess we should just go back to the FPS video games where we kill countless without a context and a plot instead. They were going for post-apocolyptic realism and they nailed it.
Oh but wait, whole plot bad cause they made you kill a pupper!
Just go away with your bad take.

Anyone tried Valhalla yet?
I only played AC I-IV and a bit of Syndicate but haven't touched Origins or Odyssey. The game is pretty and I like the nordic theme + Eivor is stunning but what's the story like?
I just want to play an assassin again with eavesdropping, merging into crowds and the stuff the previous games had, like, be an actual assassin lol
AM is really good because it doesn't have that one plot point with the grey skinned underground illuminati being behind everything and stronger than any army while also weak little bitches at the same time
that makes the whole game an incoherent mess so you can just pretend it doesn't exist. And it gets better if you're that worried about Dimitri. CF is the shittiest route, it's the shortest but it does have different objectives in the same maps so that's a plus, but the story becomes absolutely trash and you'll wonder what the story writers were smoking when working on this game sometimes when it comes to almost everything about Edelgard.
Playing several routes one after the other is a chore no matter the order tbh. Even the devs said they were shocked that many people did all the four routes in one go instead of choosing one route and talking about the others with other players.
thank you so much for letting me know about that plot point! that was by FAR one of my least favourite things about GD, and i was not looking forward to having to rehash it in the other three routes, holy fuck. that tron legacy ass battle in the underground was the stupidest fucking thing ever. i swear to god the dubstep song they used will haunt me forever
and that’s interesting! i can already see what you mean though. i think i dislike more characters in BE than i have the other houses (i cannot fucking stand bernadette, that little blue haired manlet fuck, and edelgard’s greasy ass incel looking weirdo bestie), and it’s kind of annoying that i’m clearly going to have to work to recruit and somehow use other characters like mercedes and lysithea to get the full story irt a ton of different plot points that they’ve briefly mentioned and then abandoned in GD/BL. i’m also already kind of bored just thinking about the church route too, but i think i’ll definitely be doing that one last either way.

Oh yes, Earthbound is a must play! You can also get Earthbound Zero/Beginnings if you want more of the same (but fair warning, it is the first game in the series and it's much weaker than Earthbound). You will probably want to use the easy ring unless you enjoy pointless grindfest.
You should also play A Link To The Past.
My personal strange favorite is Evo: Search for Eden. It's a bizzare sidescrolling platformer/action RPG in which you start as an ancient fish and evolve your way through ages, becoming a dinosaur, mammal and even (an ugly as hell) human. You attack and eat other creatures to gain exp (as seen in pic related). To evolve you buy new stronger (or just different) body parts. What little plot there is is a bizzare take on religion and history of our planet with some sci-fi touches (so pretty typical for Japanese creators kek). It has surprisingly touching moments though like when you see the cave containing spirits of the dinosaur mama still nursing her baby
. The music is pretty nice, love the art. Highly recommend this hidden gem.
A hint if you decide to play: if you get stuck on bosses, remember that evolving a body part regains your HP! Abuse it and keep evolving something cheap like tail back and forward
No, I know. I posted it to be a bit tongue-in-cheek. As for the killing god part, I'm just tired of the same formula of fight human boss then ruh-roh
it was actually [insert god/godlike figure here]'s doing. Would rather they spice things up a bit by keeping it an all human conflict since we basically get the whole killing god-schtick in mainline games anyway. probably gonna wait on smt5 since I know atlus is gonna pull the same shit they did for royal and charge 60$ to just buy the base game with dlc already included

i can't lie like 60% of the reason i kept playing it is because geralt is really hot. the other 40% of the game is alright otherwise, although i did find it to get easier towards the end. i was playing on death march so maybe i just overleveled myself too muchyen best girl and hottest girl too

Other titles to try:
2. Donut County - quirky, fun puzzles, charming characters, about 3h of gameplay so not a big investment

4. Pikuniku - quirky, fun characters, puzzle, just positively weird and enjoyable

Anyone here playing yakuza 7? I wasn't sure at first if I would enjoy it because of the turn based fighting system but actually it isn't that bad although i still prefer how it was before. Haven't gotten that far plot wise, like chapter 3 i think, but so far it still seems fun and like a yakuza game. Kiryu was a better boyfriend however and I miss disco and cabaret club of yakuza 0 lol, would take them over shogi or mahjong any time of the day ree.

I am never up to date with consoles… ever. I’ve been playing a lot of online Soul Calibur 6 and creating custom characters and making a “gang” of rotating ones with their own goofy combinations of battle phrases, outfits and names. But I’m still not very good at online fighting.
I also started playing New Vegas and it’s fun but a little frustrating. I have a poor sense of direction so half of the time I’m spacing out getting lost before looking at the local map, and then suddenly and violently dying at the hands of a giant stinging bug that can somehow survive countless shotgun blasts and spiked knuckle punches.
It’s hard playing both because I’ll just stop playing before I get too frustrated, which happens a lot. Constantly losing and getting lost is how I play games apparently.
But Aggretsuko mobile however…. I am hopelessly addicted to it.

. I mean IT IS a scrote visual novel, but it's quite okay? I don't remember anything terribly insulting or sexist (I only played Hanako and Lily's routes though). The most cringy thing is the retarded Harry Potter doppelganger spouting radfem conspiracy theories, but he's clearly a parody
of meninists kek. The novel gives the girls some agency and kicks the PC in the nuts if you don't respect it,
as far as I remember.
Give it a try, you are not losing anything except for time if you decide you don't like it.
with whom are you having trouble with?
I've got ps+ so if you need help I could coop although it's probably too late now.
I'm playing 0 rn and working my way up… As an rpgfag who fucking loves
turn based combat, would it be satisfying to play or is it just an average (but a nice) change of pace from beat em' ups.
The game won't come out in like 2-3 years but I'm hyped!
I'm also glad Varric is back.
Story and characters are great; not worth playing on old gen consoles though, unless you have the upgraded versions like ps4pro.
Reception of the game depends on your circles I guess because I'm seeing exclusively positive stuff with the exception of technical performance issues. As for dicks and vaginas it honestly matters SO LITTLE idk why would anyone care but theres 2 dicks and one vagina.

First game I ever played: MediEvil on PS1. I had such a strong crush on Sir Daniel Fortesque kek. Great music too.
Might just wait till after Christmas to try it and hope they can fix some of it with patches.
At least the Dawning starts Tuesday so I have plenty of Destiny to play.
I've only played a bit so far, but my biggest complaint is the NPCs being so fucking wooden. There's almost no dialogue with any of them and they barely move around.
Games like Skyrim/GTA/Fallout have been so enduring because of how immersive the world is and the NPCs are a big part of that. The Cyberpunk city looks
really cool, but there's very little interaction you can have with the people or the surroundings.
I'm definitely going to keep playing, the game is beautiful, it's just not what I was hoping it would be. So far I doubt there will be much replay value after finishing the main story.

Is Cyberpunk 2077 the new Fallout' 76? All I see in my social media feed is people being super mad about the technical issues. Thoughts?
Didn't Witcher 3 also have a shitton of bugs when it was released at first? Then again, they did postpone this game over and over.
Are the story and the gameplay itself fun at least?
Oh man, I forgot Judgment was still not on PC.
I am hoping they do HD remasters of the samurai games, at least Ishin. That game still holds up pretty well. Plays like no other and given the boost of samurai themed games that have released these past few years and still coming, I think they can do it. Sega teases us about Ishin so much in the player surveys, it's about time.

the fucking audacity of the CDPR devs to make this beautiful imaginary pixel woman hetero exclusive. i am seething. jokes aside, i'm having a blast with all of cyberpunks jank. 25 hours in and so far i have managed to:
>rocket out of the bottom of the world map after jacking a car
>reload into an infinite death loop after being insta-killed in a fist fight
>glitch into a companion npc's body as they were driving on the way to a mission
>find several random npcs walking casually suspended several feet into the air
>have a companion npc spawn as nothing but their clothes - their body was completely invisible
>ram so hard into another car it shot up into the sky
>have random lines of dialogue just not play any audio in the middle of conversations
>have random npcs and cars constantly blip in and out of existence or skirt wildly across the map and off into the ether
i never wanna get off of this wild ride. side quests are admittedly dull, i couldn't give less of a fuck about the main storyline, and i feel like the game forces you to be buddies with characters without much time for you to develop interest in them, but so far so good, i guess.
I very occasionally watch another famous streamer and he also has a lot of difficulty to keep the stream stable despite having a monster of a machine.
It's full of bug, dialogues are akin to some shitty Hollywood movie, fight sequences are boring, but the game brings some very cool ideas despite the typical neon-lit cyberpunk aesthetic.
It looks as mush as a poorly-produced cookie-clicker grindfest than post-Interplay Fallout, only less boring and with a setting uncommon enough to keep the player more engaged (yes, it's a hot take)

I have only played Bloodborne and Dark Souls but it seems that Bloodborne will always be my fave. I adored the gothic/victorian style of the game, the blood recovery mechanic and the cane! I wish there was a sequel…
I loved the Doll so much, I wish there was a happy ending where the hunter takes her on a wild adventure and they live happily ever after. Also Alfred was my husbando until he fucking went and killed the queen.
Dark Souls is my favorite game in the saga and my absolute favorite video game of all time, it's going to sound cliché but it really helped me during depressive episodes, and it was the first real hard game I played (I'm not a big gamer). My first character was a complete mess, I just put points randomly to be able to wield items I wanted to use in the moment, basically zero build lol.
I loved Bloodborne a lot, I think it's objectively the best Soulsborne game thanks to its gameplay, pacing and level design, but I totally understand why it was underwhelming to you, and the game went through a lot of rework and cut content, I wonder what the final game would have looked like as a DeS sequel. Ludwig is my favorite boss fight in any video game and probably my favorite Soulsborne character as well, I would die for him. I made a skill/bloodtinge build for my first character, I tried several weapons but I could never get enough of the cane, it was so stylish on my old lady. Also I hope they never make a second game, it's perfect as it is and doesn't need any additional content.
I never managed to get into DS2 for many of the usual reasons, but what really annoyed me was the aggroing of the enemies. I never finished it and I don't think I'll ever come back to it, which is a shame as I've heard the DLCs are quite good.
Kind of an unpopular opinion but I really like DS3, it's true it relies too much on memberberries but I thought it was very enjoyable, the atmosphere is the closest to DeS's, the environments are pleasant to explore and the Nameless King is a great addition to the more. Since I don't have time to play a lot anymore I've been stuck on Friede for a while, I really need to get back to it someday.
Also, I really liked Marvelous Chester's voice in DS so I tend to like the other characters his VA has done, namely Djura and Oceiros, even if this guy is kinda lame lol.
I could sperg about those games for hours, please keep the conversation going anon!
>>118488>Ludwig is my favorite boss fight in any video game and probably my favorite Soulsborne character as well, I would die for him.
why do you love Ludwig as a character?
Ngl, I hated the fight because it was crazy difficult! But also awesome… though to be fair, the Smough/Orenstein one was even more infuriating while not being as a
Yeah, Gascoigne is great, from what I've seen of the JP fandom he is one of the big Soulsborne husbandos with Solaire, Artorias and NK, like I mentioned earlier I have more of a thing for Djura because of his voice and personality, I love when people draw them interacting.
For DS2 I unfortunately bought the vanilla game on the PS3 way back when it was released (I was insanely hyped) and bought the DLCs discounted, I didn't even reach the first boss of the first one because of how disoriented I was. This version of the game must be so dead now, I heard that SotFS provides a much better experience of the game, but I'm a bit iffy about buying again a game that didn't give me great impressions.>>118500
It's more an ensemble than a character that I like, the way he is built up gradually throughout the base game is intriguing, he is a tragic figure embodying the failure of the hunt, the score in the fight is phenomenal, him regaining his sanity was nicely set up, his final words were kinda moving… I think he has a great design as well despite the gross factor and I really enjoyed the fight, pretty hard but still fair, more like a test of might to see if you're ready for the DLC (not like the Orphan or Laurence). Of course this is all surface level as Soulsborne characters are not deep Shakespearean protagonists, but for some reason Ludwig touched me more than other characters.

Been catching up with FGO (shameless bitch for gachas) and the latest Christmas event announced a pretty popular dude as the free unit. He doesn't look like he's wearing a Santa outfit, but whatever, people are happy to see him.
Men who're too invested in the waifus are having meltdowns over this, saying female servants get treated like shit, that the devs are intentionally trying to kill the game by pandering to women/gay men/fujos…
This in spite of the fact there's still going to be a female Servant in the gacha. It's funny, but another sad reminder that a gacha could cater to women for one event and men will make it all about they aren't being pandered to
Why are you even paying attention to those guys. They'll complain over any little thing no matter how much or how little they are pandered too, it's just the gatcha audience.
Just annoyed I went for Beowulf and got spooked by Scheherezade, 5* but it's always the chicks. Also Santa Karna's a Saber and I already have a ton of gold sabers… But a good step making another freebie guy.

There's always someone complaining.
I started playing months after the game was released as someone already into fate and it was seriously embarassing (as in how it was handled by the developers), though I did have fun and "stayed" in the fandom for like two years. Nowadays I play, roll, read some translations since my japanese is still shit after all this time, and look at cute art. Everything else is not worth the time and anger.

Finished first part of Cyberpunk story (to the point of seeing Silverhand for the first time); basic PS4, 15h, crashed once, few visual bugs, once needed to reload the quest to have objectives update and thats it. People who say it's unplayable are completely unhinged, it plays well and looks good for what it is, one problem would be framerate drop when there are too many people shooting.
Even though it was out there in marketing that the heist mission is gonna go bad and Jackie will die it still broke my heart, the writting and pacing entire quest is amazing. I cried like a stupid baby Jackie was too good and didn't deserve any of this, he even took the chip himself initially despite being already hurt and not knowing what it will do to him, real friend. Looking forward the rest of the game even though the marketing made me feel a bit fed up with "wholesome Keanu"'s face, so I'm not that excited ot be seeing him now all the time.
I feel you, anon. I've beaten the game and unlocked different endings, and I can say it's been amazing. I've felt emotional in so many different points. I would've missed all of this had I paid any attention to reddit, glad I didn't.
About Johnny: he does become a good friend at some point, depending on how you treat him.

Speaking of forbidden romances I hope they'll add an option to go to town with Jackie 2.0. I'm still before the parade mission and I fear he's also gonna get killed, he's warming up to V far too good.
