I tend to avoid the main story until I am satisfied with the current plot development from a character standpoint. I RP my protagonist whose starting personality and backstory I determine before playing, then do quests (main or side) that they'd be interested in and only in the ways that they might want those quests to resolve. I don't do side quests for the rewards unless there's a really cool addition to my character's story like a special weapon that works really well with their whole narrative or something like that. I don't recruit every companion, just the ones that my character either likes or feels they must work with. Stuff like that. I don't visit every zone or explore all corners of every zone. I try to completely embody my character and their interests.
I find it makes replays far more engaging since I never end up 100%ing my first playthrough and I can just keep coming back for a completely different experience.

Just beat Ocarina of Time again and now I'm so torn as to what to play next. I could go straight to Majora's Mask (which I have never finished) or try something else like Okami or Divinity Original Sin

i'm weirdly mega obsessed with collecting cute video games that I could have played as a kid but never did because i nor my parents had any clue about video games. especially the gameboy advance, because I really think I would have had a better childhood if I had one when I was like 7. I bought one and have these games. It's such a lonely experience collecting and enjoying them because nobody understands my weird hobby. I can't wait to finish the GBA and get a pink DS with cooking mama, super princess peach etc. and some kawaii decals. for some reason the obsession is only with handhelds.
I'm hoping that once I get my fill out of all of them, this obsession with old games will go away and I can just start being a normal gamer with a switch.

In terms of good gameplay and bad writing, Destiny. What a fun game, shooting feels amazing, Vault of Glass raid is one of my favorite gaming experiences. Worst thing about writing is that groundwork clearly was there too when it comes to world building, as can be seen in grimoire cards, but you can immediately tell the story was written and put together last second.
File: 1611261541981.png (305.02 KB, 660x880, 1608578377508.png)
Persona 2 Innocent Sin on the PSP has a very fun story and the characters are way more likable than the ones in P4 and especially P5, but the battles are so slow, the encounter rate is way too high and the fusion system is shit. I didn't mind the dungeons though once I managed to fuse a persona with the estoma skill. Some things like the demon negotiation system and the fusion spells were great though, I hope they can incorporate fusion spells back just like in P2 and DDS in the next Persona game. I didn't play P2 Eternal Punishment because I'm in Europe but the gameplay doesn't even make me want to emulate the game, I just watched a playthrough on youtube.
I also liked the story and the characters in the Wonderful 101 a lot, but the game itself was weird. The battle system is good and kind of similar to Bayonetta's, but there are too many shitty minigames interrupting you every five seconds. And seeing Luka as a kid in this game made me like him even more than in just Bayonetta 1 and 2.
Just talking about the first game?
Because I think considering the limits of the genre that there is a lot of good lore.
File: 1611294264665.jpg (305.2 KB, 1920x1080, Destiny 2_20171219183602.jpg)
And talking about Destiny they did the thing again where the mission is way too hard unless you're an FPS god or have friends, neither which apply… God I wish there was a game with these kind of aesthetics which was truly single player and I didn't get that anxious feeling about not being able to get 100%.
Silent Hill 2 and 3. I absolutely adore both games and replay them every couple years but I don't play them for the gameplay. Although it can be argued that the frustrating gameplay adds to the experience, because it encourages you to just run away from threats.
Also Deadly Premonition…I adore that game, the ending made me sob, but it is fucking broken and irritating. The goddamn ceiling ghosts… >>123132
I've heard that Tokyo Jungle is similar to Disaster Report!

>>123165>Because I think considering the limits of the genre that there is a lot of good lore.
Yeah, like I've said, the lore is there and is great, everything in Grimoire Cards and some stuff from later game; but I especially meant vanilla Destiny 1, as much as I love the game I just cant defend anything that is going there story/dialogue- wise. >>123179
I feel the same, unfortunately it was always meant to be played with other people. Strikes are still doable in matchmaking so it's not so much of a problem when you have no friends, but missing out on playing raids because of that sucks. I was still playing with a few friends when Vault of Glass and Crota's End were introduced, figuring out VoG together - took us almost 16h to finish! - was SO MUCH FUN. But it's impossible to achieve with strangers and alone you'd have to spend your entire life playing to get this good. Too bad, because like you've said, aesthetics are so on point there.

Would it be appropriate to discuss arcade games here as well, or should I make a separate thread? They have a considerably large world of their own, but if there isn't enough interest, I obviously won't make one. I mainly have a question about the Konami Arcade Championship.
Disney and Nintendo can suck my whole ass
I love their IPs (especially Disney that now owns the fucking universe), but they keep doing shit like this and don't even deliver the goodies that the fans want to compensate. Like, if Disney was remaking KOTOR with beautiful new graphics/engine/animations, I'd kinda get it, but you know they just don't care at all.
Still waiting and hoping, even if it didn't sell enough being on the Switch is still a shot worth a try.
If they could give us the "dream boyfriend" dlc feature too for the love of god fix the male's body

I haven't tried but it shouldn't be too hard. You might have to mess with settings to get Dolphin to play well with your laptop CPU.
Allegedly it's easy to play with gamepad or keyboard/mouse too.

Finished it! It was wonderful, this is now my favourite game in the series. The sound design and the ambience was particularly good, along with the soundtrack - there is a melody in the game that is important to the story and they managed to make it really haunting and memorable. I loved the characters too especially Kirishima; in the previous game, the only male character was painfully bland so I was really glad they fleshed this one out. I also loved his plot twist-y ending.
My issues with the game were mostly technical - the translations were sometimes inaccurate or obscure but it was translated by fans, not official translators so I have no place to complain, and I found the controls to be difficult but I was emulating a game that was supposed to be played with a wiimote so it was to beexpected.
All in all, I recommend this to anyone who likes story based horror games
NTAYRT, there's a bunch of mini games and the story and side stories are pretty enticing, more anime and soap opera style storytelling rather than major film.
My favorite mini game in Yakuza 0 is the Hostess maker, it doesn't unlock until a 3 or 4 chapters but I had once played just that mini game for 6 hours in a row.
I have a friend who bought Yakuza 6 just because there was a previously arcade only port of Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown contained within it.
oh there is anon!!! there's plently of sidequests and minigames, my favorite is karaoke + the claw machine (there's a social-link type of sidequest for Majima in Yakuza 0 where you get these toys from the claw machine for a little girl outside a SEGA arcade, completing it is really endearing and sweet!)
i'm a fan of the combat but honestly i just play to fuck around the map and do as much side stuff as possible. i love spending hours playing pool or darts at the bars, or getting my current character drunk

Anons, I'm losing my mind. I have no money and all I want to fucking do is play fighting games. I never received my stimulus checks so I missed a window of time where I could have bought a stick before really hunkering down. It's been 182 days since I've been able to play my favorite game (SF:Third Strike) on a cab. I'm fucking tweaking. I see Chun Li's little sprite doing tensei rankas and kikokens. I've resorted to watching people on twitch just to simulate the feeling of playing. I'm dying inside. I feel like nobody cares about third strike except balding scrotes.
My question to you all is why is every KOF ass? What's your favorite fighter and who do you main?
you're not the only one, it is better to go undercover. it's not worth it to be singled out as a girl and be treated differently and pretending to be a dude allows you to focus on the subject (and it helps avoid creepy interactions).
i do the same for some hobbies online, the only exception is if i find a group of other women who seem chill, then it can be refreshing to make a second account and join them.

Is the Nier saga any good or is it just popular because of the fanservice? Have never played any of the games but the trailer for the first game's remake makes me curious.
said, I'd definitely consider grinding out some levels, invest in some delicious heals and you should be fine

Is The House in Fata Morgana worth finishing? I like it so far but idk if it’s worth spending like another 20 hours on.
I liked the first NieR a lot, loved the characters, story and OST, lot of people say the gameplay is bad but it's perfectly serviceable. I don't think I'll play the remake though because I liked the original enough and (unpopular opinion) I prefer Papa to Brother Nier. Automata is a good game but I think it was a bit overhyped, gameplay is good but not living up to other Platinum Games titles like Bayonetta or MGR, themes are so in your face it gets obnoxious by the end and I really couldn't get attached to any of the characters (especially 9S), I have a hard time considering androids "real" humans and couldn't really empathize with them. The OST isn't as memorable as the previous one either despite using the same kind of compositions, the track that I remember the most is the theme park lmao.
Weirdly enough I think my favorite game in the whole saga is the very first Drakengard because of how batshit insane it is. I don't really recommend playing it because it's objectively not a good game and you need to read a lot of extra material to make the connection with NieR, but I played it during a weird time in my life and associate a lot of memories with it.

Now that I beat DMC3SE with Dante I tried to play DMC2 and I've done 10 missions with Dante in less than two hours. It's not even a bad game, it's just the most bland shit I've ever played in my life. When I read that DMC2 was by far the worst game in the series I thought it would rival Sonic 06 in terms of bullshit and glitches but it's a fully functional game actually. I'm going to force myself to beat the game this weekend, and if after that I find Lucia too boring I'll just go back to DMC3 to unlock everything for Dante.

Your post reminded me that I played through DMC2 three entire times just to unlock playable Trish. No regrets though, she feels way better to play with than Dante or Lucia
File: 1613254798732.png (1.03 MB, 1306x1354, 71189980_p0.png)
I wouldn't recommend it at all actually, since you need to complete the game on hard mode at least once in order to unlock her. The enemies don't get smarter or harder to beat with the increase in difficulty, they just become damage sponges and it's just really tedious to get through them (especially the bosses). Plus, a few sections of the game that are normally no problem become absolutely broken and unplayable on hard mode. Overall it's a shitty experience and not worth it if you just want to play as Trish. >Trish should have been playable in DMC1
Hard agree, she had so much wasted potential

Ninty Direct tomorrow. I already hate the fact that it says that it will focus on SSBU, because I feel thisn will be mostly 48 minutes of new characters reveal and other things related to that. I will still watch it because I hope that it will end with some Zelda shit because I'm desperat for BOTW2. Any anons here also plan to watch it? Any hopes or dreams for this direct?
And of course, maybe a bit of Bayo 3 …? https://twitter.com/NintendoAmerica/status/1361676737730519042?s=20

If they don't announce Dante or Phoenix Wright for Smash then what's the point?
>And of course, maybe a bit of Bayo 3 …?
i agree with you - i’m very excited but i haaate that it’ll be centered around smash. luckily i deleted pretty much all social media so i won’t have to see pathetic middle aged scrotes crying because their favourite character from some irrelevant 25 year old game isn’t the new character.
i’m not sure what to expect though! i’m hoping it’s something big since this is the first direct in forever. BOTW2 would be sick. i hope they announce a date for genshin impact on switch too! i’m also desperate for pokemon news but i know pokemon would do a separate thing for that so who knows
I fucking came when I saw this castle.
The big titty bitch and all her henchgirls were amazing as well but this castle? hng. this castle. motha fucka.

Damn, this direct had so much animu shit going on. The joycons are the only thing that truly interest me tho, everything was rather meehh. Port here, port there. Do not care about splatoon tho. No BOTW2 but I guess we will see it at E3 this year.
How are fellow anons feeling about this direct?
I didn't realise Bravely 2 was a new story so now I'm just more excited to get it.

How do you justify buying smash dlc when the price of all 12 fighters is the same as buying the base game? I want to play with Hero and the upcoming Xenoblade characters but I can't convince myself the pricing is worth it. It's not like they'll make me better at the game. Not to mention it'll be months before the final 2 fighters in this volume are revealed. I think I'll use the money for Mario 3D World or Pikmin instead.
The only interesting things was the TRPG from square enix, the rest was meh.>>128502
I thought it was possible to buy DLC fighters separately.

Super excited for the new Splatoon game! Apparently it takes place in a new city called Splatsville. I really wonder what this city would have looked like if Team Order won.>>128499
The new joycons look cool but I don't really get the point of special joycons tbh. If you use them they'll eventually drift and you can't send them to Nintendo to be fixed since it's not guaranteed you'll get the same joycons back.

Are there any stat-building games similar to Long Live the Queen and Princess Maker? I'm mostly a casual gamer but I love these sort of games so much and can't find any.
Yes I came here to recommend the TMGS games as well! They're cute and very addicting and bingeable. There's three games and naturally the third is the most polished, but the first two hold up as well. The order doesn't really matter so I would just play whichever one appeals to you the most in terms of love interests or whatever else.
The best part is that you can run them on a potato since all three are DS games and emulating them is a piece of cake.
I hope you'll enjoy them, anon! They're probably my favorite otomes and I'm also coincidentally going through one of my obsessive binging phases with one of the games so I especially felt like sperging lol

Where did you play yours? I tried through dolphin however the game was lagging and screamed like a deranged banshee who is seeing her idol for the first time. I also tried through twilight menu it worked fine but I couldn't get a job or go back after looking through my emails in the game.

Bloodlines 2 delayed indefinitely and changing studio. This franchise really is cursed.
It was supposed to come out a year ago and it was supposedly "almost done".
Then they said they still had to do mocap.
Then they fired the project manager, then the lead writer who wrote the first Bloodlines, then even the other writer left. Then it got delayed to 2021. Now they're switching studios and starting over. Situation's bad.
I'm back after spending the last few days playing other games. I beat the game with Dante. The game was actually super short compared to what I expected and I have no idea why they used a second disc for Lucia because her route doesn't seem very different so far.
Honestly I expected DMC2 to be far worse than it is because of its reputation, and I think if it were my first game of the genre back when I was younger I would have liked it because of how easy and simple it is. But it's not worth the 5€ I spent on my copy. I'm glad I didn't spend 20€ on it for the Switch. I'll go back to Xenoblade Chronicles or DMC3 right after that.
Yeah, maybe having to start over will be for the best in the long run. I wasn't confident in what we already knew about the game, particularly the writing. >>129255
Tbh, I don't care too much if the combat and such is mediocre, I just want a game that actually feels like a sequel to bloodlines, with similar atmosphere and character designs.

I'm probably just a stupid purist too attached to the original game but I hate how they just went on and removed colors from the remaster of Nier Replicant.
Also gave everyone a tiny nose that makes them look several years younger but that bothers me less than the colors.
