Nice thread image, far better than the previous one since it clearly evokes games as opposed to looking like an ~aesthetic blog post.

Those who play open world games, how do you play them? Personally I do the main story first and optional side stories in replays, unless it's an RPG and I need to level up in order to comfortably continue the main story.

No. 122410

Ideally, I would do the side quests first and main quests last. But since I don't have the time, I skip the side quests I don't like and only do a few in order to level up.

No. 122412

play like 150+ hours of sidequests and exploring, and when i start getting bored i continue the main quest, often getting distracted and ending up doing nothing again. for some reason i don't really like replaying games, so i usually try to do everything in one savefile

No. 122414

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.

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.

I just beat Astral Chain on easy mode, and now I'm doing all the chapters on normal mode. It's way more fun now that I unlocked all the legions and I'm trying to upgrade them as much as possible. It's amazing how slow and boring the game is until Jena shows up.

I also just started Xenoblade Chronicles 1 on the Switch and I don't like how you can only control one character at once and all of the characters attack bu themselves. I 'm gonna play it more and see if I change my mind, but nowadays I can't stand long games with a slow start. If I give up on that game I'll just play Katamari Damacy Reroll anyway.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Disney has this core principle they call brand integrity and it prevents them from allowing any sort of fan creation to thrive.

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.

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.

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

Would you say playing this game more than once just to unlock Trish is worth? And speaking of which, Trish should have been playable in DMC1.

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?

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

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.

i lost my fucking marbles for the new splatoon game!!! i was so certain it was just another DLC until we got to the new hub (which i guess is based on tokyo or seoul? idk but i loved it, it looks amazing). i wonder who will replace pearl and marina? either way, such a sick announcement!

anyway, new splatoon game definitely saved the whole thing for me personally - even the AC announcement was super lame, i was expecting more than just the mario collection since we've known it was coming for months. i got super excited at whatever that square enix game was too because i thought it was a new fire emblem, kek

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.

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.

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

It was supposed to come out a year ago and it was supposedly "almost done".
Then they said they still had to do mocap.

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.

I honestly liked the promotional trailer's atmosphere, but the gameplay itself sure seemed shit with the dead empty streets and the awkward combat.

Outstar is a Paradox employee, she's a literal shill who's on the company's payroll to convince customers that it's "all right guys, I tried the game and it's amazing" - just like she's been telling people for a year. I don't recommend using her as source, she's as biased as it could be.
