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

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

Aaah, Spyro was so nice and pleasing.

My childhood favs were Tomb Raider, Spyro, Medievil, Abe's Odyssey (quite spooked by it) alongside straight up horror games like SH and RE

I don't know any of the less known games you mentioned tho. Rule of Roses seems to have the same atmosphere but I guess it became quite well known and popular so it doesn't count

No. 102023

I don't play the online mode personally but the story is great and the map is huge, I must've sunk hundreds of hours into just riding around exploring and hunting and I'm still not quite 100%. Some animal spawn rates are bullshit though, and same with some of the challenges. All I can really say about online is that they do keep updating it, just added a whole new role (like career thing I think?), and people are still playing it. In comparison there's been one, maybe two story mode updates that I'm aware of. Most recent was for the PC release, they just added some more collectibles and a treasure map, so they're clearly putting all their time/effort into the online multiplayer.

No. 102024

Easily one of my top 5 games of all time now, if you were a fan of RDR1 you will love RDR2 even more. Once you finish the main storyline you can also do the legendary animal challenges or other mini in game storylines. A bit autistic but I also enjoyed getting a rare albino horse, I was quite attached to all my horsies in the game.

FFX-2 is the superior game. You'll enjoy it more.

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.

No. 102190

I love this game for just screwing around I do wish they had a casual mode for those of us who aren't obsessed with red rank and regurgitating whatever perks the streamers are favoring. I'm purple when I actually try but I prefer to fall back to green or yellow rank because no one there cares and I'm not raged at at the end for playing games like opening and closing the chests to draw in the killer then running them until they get annoyed and go after whoever I'm nearest to.

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

I really like it, I am about 40 hours in and I have completed the main story but there is a lot of after game content too. In game I love how free you are to explore, basically as soon as you get the ship you can travel anywhere (if you avoid high levelled enemies). I really love the characters and just running around the world but I have noticed a lot of missions are a bit samey but it never bothered me too much. I have heard it's different from the older assassins creed games but I wouldn't know since it's my first so I am not sure how you'd like it in comparison. I think the game tends to lean you towards the warrior skill tree and stealth is more of a secondary option so it's more like Warriors Creed than Assassins Creed lol. I'd say get it but keep an open mind! and if you don't like it I'm sorry lol

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

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?

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.

No. 103281

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 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

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.

I personally like Soejima's way of handling colors and themes, I think in Persona 5 his work is excellent. I also really love Kazuma Kaneko's demon designs though.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.


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.

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.

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.

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'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.

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 keep getting a lot of platinum medals for individual fights but I get stone trophies. At least it's less rage inducing than DMC1. and its horrible camera. And Luka is cute, I like this dumbass.

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.

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.

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.

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).

No. 106723

Finally someone who agrees with me. I was so dissapointed in Automata that I actually hated it when I first played at launch. I loved the cast of the first game so going from that to the (admittedly pretty) cardboard cutouts that are 2B and 9S was a huuuge letdown. I can replay it now and admit that it's objectively a good game but to me, the original is 10 times better.

No. 106724

Now I just beat Bayonetta 2 and it's insane how easier it is compared to the first one. And not just because of the lack of shitty QTEs. I didn't get any stone trophy, not even once. I'll keep playing both games to unlock more content and eventually I'll try to play on hard mode, and after that I'll try to get copies of Okami, The wonderful 101 and Astral Chain.

By the way, I'm almost considering getting Pokemon Shield but given all the things they added or changed in gen 8 I'm not sure I'll like it as someone who played all the mainline games since gen 1.

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.

Play on PC with "unofficial patch plus" for the best experience. You could play with a controller on PC but you'd still want a keyboard for the occasional password entry. Many sections can be beaten with just dialogue options, but there are still plenty of sneaking or raw combat sections so make sure you level some weapon so you don't get totally locked out - if your hands are broken maybe consider cheating (you don't really miss out on any gameplay through this). Also don't be dissuaded from playing Malkavian on your first playthrough if that's what you want to do.

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

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

No. 107785

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.

anons I'm dumb, you can play 3ds games on a 2ds xl right? I have a 3ds but the right shoulder button is kinda fucky and I have a lot of games I still wanna play. Can you play classic DS games too?

No. 107911

That is a very neat premise, might check it out.

No. 107918

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.

No. 107973

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.

They're getting harder to find and more expensive. I got one a while ago and the top screen part is very loose which is apparently a common thing with the 2DS XL. It feels like it's going to snap off though and that's not great. You're playing a game and it's flapping about if you even blink.

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.

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.

>Romance and Rivarly Mechanics.

>Background (wizard, muggle, whatever) choice affecting dialog and minor quests.
>Choices. Choices. Choices. But a fairly somewhat linear storyline, you can still be an asshole but not completely evil.
>Combat looks like a mix of Skyrim and Inquisition.

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.

The way in which Elder Scrolls combat falls flat imo is melee, since it gets floaty. A game that focuses on ranged combat like magic is ideal, I'm extremely hopeful for this one.

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.

Seriously I get where you’re coming from! That weird disconnect between the style/gameplay and content (at times) was so odd to me. I played the games when I was pretty young, like middle to early high school, and even then I was like, what the hell is with the pervy endings? I remember you can even have her work at a “sleazy” bar (basically bartender at a strip club) and marry your character (her much older adoptive father) which just makes me think the game is partial pedo bait. Disappointing because it definitely lends itself to women playing it too, with plenty of cool outcomes like becoming captain of the guard, a famous writer, magician or of course queen. Never went for any of the gross routes obviously so I could ignore them, but would be cool if you could just turn off all questionable content and play as a mom instead.

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.

I always thought that one thing they ought to be good at were graphics.

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.

I'm sorry, but compared to other major FF games it looks like it doesn't fit. Sure a few characters are nice, but overall it's bland and looks like your average western game.

It looks like it's changing from the usual FF style but it's becoming boring rather than interesting.

No. 108491

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.

There's a lot of speculation if they'll add the cut archstone (notably because of that snowy mountain shot in the first trailer), but I'd be surprised if they did it, Bluepoint didn't add any of the cut colossi in their SotC remake. Also many people think that lots of elements from the land of the giants were introduced in subsequent games, trying to create the area according to the original vision would maybe be redundant (unless they build something completely new from scratch).

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.

not a huge pokemon fan but I already have a physical copy of SMT4 that I'm playing on a borrowed 3DS, and I'm gonna get SMT4 Apocalypse for sure too.

Ace Attorney and Bravely Default/Second are good ideas too, never played those games but have been meaning to check them out, especially Ace Attorney!

>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.

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!

No. 109160

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.

No. 109177

Dragon Age 2 is the only one of the series that I've played. I thought it was meh but I did play all the way through to the end. I like playing mages, especially something blood magic.

Should I buy Origins?

No. 109182

agree about Origins but I wouldn't rank it above TES Morrowind. Inquisition was tedious af because Bioware just sucks at open world design and should stick to Origins and Mass Effect 2 type of level design. When they went back to that style in Trespasser it was GOOD good. And the dialogue in Origins wasn't that retarded wheel type dumbed down dialogue

No. 109184

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.

No. 109186

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?

Fuck i need to play trespasser but i was so tired of that damn egg

No. 109188

Trespasser is the best thing Bioware has put out since DAO and ME2 imo. High stakes, compelling, and not tedious or corny. If only the rest of Inquisition was as good. Fortunately Patrick Weekes, head writer for Trespasser and Solas, is head of DA4 too.

DA2 is the worst DA game. Yes, please buy Origins. I think it's way more fun in rpg elements. it's slow, but sucks you in. When i got DA2, i tried to romance Fenris and felt like shit afterwards, because you have to become an actual homicidal maniac to get a chance to tickle his dick. it's not worth it.

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.

Latest ad for Cyberpunk 2077. I have to admit, my hype for this game was highest around the time of the E3 2018 demo. I get a little nervous every time they release a new trailer advertising a single aspect of the game (gangs, lifepaths, etc) because I wonder if it really all does come together seamlessly in a huge open world or if they're just fluffing up little bits of flavor to make them seem like they hugely affect gameplay. I mean I sincerely hope this game is great but is anyone else a little worried it'll be, if not a total buggy mess, disappointingly mediocre?

No. 109618

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.

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.

No. 109637

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.

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'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.

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.

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!

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.

No. 111205

I mean, play them because they are OG and better by default imo. I will say that the graphics arent the issues, but the earlier games have tank controls and are pretty slow in response. I still love the original trilogy way more than anything new tomb raider released.

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?

No. 111245

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.

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 second that!! The game is amazing, especially if on the top of being a fan of the retro japanese horror you're a fan of pen and paper RPGs, as the gameplay is heavily inspired by these. I've already spent a few hours in it so it's definitely ripe to play despite being still in development.

I confirm this, I always played it on handheld mode and it works perfectly fine. I didn't play the original game despite knowing the story thanks to playthroughs on youtube, I loved it. I think if you want to play it for the puzzles more than the story it's worth it on sale, the story is fine but replaying over and over again to just get different endings can be repetitive very fast.

If you want to play it for the setting, go for it, the landscapes and the buildings are beautiful, it's clear they did their research. Historical accuracy is a bit iffy, but if you don't mind, it's still good.

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.

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.

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.

I remember the developers getting shit on by western fans when they said they couldn't picture Persona 4 with a female protagonist somehow and that was kinda stupid back then but I definitely can't see P5 with a female protagonist without changing the first arc of the game entirely. Atlus knows they can attract fujoshi without even trying, they're probably their biggest audience right behind retro RPG fans in their 30s and 40s, and they could have just made Akechi gay for the protagonist but they decided not to for some reason.
