Posting this here just in case they don't see it on the previous thread.

I'm playing on Switch and the framerate can drop in places, same like you said the village the first time but it really drops if I go in the village grain field. But the rest of the game has been fine bar one area, and it's not egregious so it's very easy to ignore.

I do love the customisation and also bought the add-ons butit does feel like they could've done just some more with it, but it's not a huge problem.

As someone cucked by mvci, I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo tried to be slick and get it approved through Square-only, until Disney slammed it's foot in the door and told Nintendo they can bring all of "Square Enix's" characters but'll cut funding on KH 4 if even a single Disney character gets in.

Save it for a treat or wait to get a lil discount on it. It will be worth the wait! Everything feels…better the action is snappy, the collectibles will keep you coming back and it's just something super fun to play and look at!

Antitribu(my favorite), Clan Quest and Final Nights are all really good and change the game quite a bit. The visual novels are also fun, especially Shadows of New York. Coteries of New York is alright, but it kind of feels like you don't have many real choices to make. The atmosphere, art and music is on point though. There are also text based adventures and a werewolf game but I haven't gotten to them yet.

There isn't any infighting between NPCs. It's basically a dialog focused RPG. The overly satirical world setting is pretty much the whole game. At least go find all the companions first and see if you like any of them. I thought the main plot was so-so but I enjoyed Max and Felix and the self-insert aspect.

Its fun and fast to beat but it has wonky camera angles sometimes when you enter a shop or house etc etc (2010 japanese game style) its your typical hack and slash so its nothing challenging. The character interactions is pretty funny sometimes. The maps and the world is kinda small tho. Don’t expect much variety with the enemies or bosses but I personally enjoyed it.

I'm replaying Disco Elysium for the first time since there was that huge patch a while ago that added voice-acting and goddamn. I don't always sit through all the lines but I'm impressed that all this came and was implemented this well. Sad they changed Cuno's voice out, though.

I love this game, as intolerable as I find the protagonist occasionally. The writing is beautiful, if sometimes overwrought, and thoroughly immerses me in the city of Martinaise and the surrounding world. The writing is so detailed that it genuinely feels like reading compelling history about a real setting. I really do adore so much about this game.

Kitaria anon from last thread here! Have you already finished the game? I just picked it up again and I had some trouble figuring out how to progress (the quest system is a bit awkward). The gameplay is very simplistic and grindy but I don't mind, it's mindless comfort for me after a day at work. It's such a cosy game, I only wish there were cute animal sounds in it to emphasize how cute the animal characters are??

Was wondering if anyone can confirm Sakuna of Rice and Ruin is similar? Or should I just play Fantasy Life/Ruin Factory instead if I want battles and farming?

Yeah, I wanted to say that the highs are really high, but the lows also are really low. I think the whole thing will take 6-8 years to be released. I get they have an engine already, but things don't seem to progress fast and the way the plot had so much bloat in FFVIIR, things don't look good. Though maybe I'm wrong, but then making game based on each disc will still take a long time.
So far, the original FFVII has much better storytelling. I'm afraid it will stay like that.

Maybe he'll have learned something in the writing department by now?

The motherhood symbols, as well as Heather and Claudia were great in SH3. Angela has moved me so much more, though.

Yes Final fantasy 15 is honestly such a nice Final fantasy first timer game. The story doesn’t take long to finish at all and you level up quite fast which is nice for more casual players. You play as cute husbandos with great chemistry so it’s such a pleasure to just chill and go camping, drive around with music, cook some delicious food etc. I like that the game never makes you feel lonely too, there’s always new and funny dialogue when you’re just walking around. Scrotes hate the game because of the bromance but I find it wholesome. It’s also a lot better than what it first was at it’s release.

Backlog anon here again, I realize how much time I spent playing vidya during the first half of the year, but since I quit my call center job and got another more normal office job I have less free time to play anything. I said I'd play Bravely Default and SMT3 but it's been months since I touched them. I started SMT5 but got lazy so I played like 12 hours so far and it's been two weeks since I touched it as well. I'm having an easier time playing Dai Gyakuten Saiban on the Switch instead since it's a visual novel/adventure game. If I beat both games before 2022 I deserve some kind of reward. 2022 will be the year when I'll mostly play JRPGs I already have and wait for Bayonetta 3. After that I literally can't think of any other game that interest me, unless maybe I get a second hand PS4 and get games on sales.

Anyway, I just finished the 3rd case of DGS1 and I've never been more frustrated with a case before in the series. It's obvious it's done on purpose for the rest of the two games and the second case also frustrated me with the culprit being like "oh no I didn't do anything wrong, I just accidentally killed a guy for the pettiest reason ever but I'm kawawi uwu so I should be forgiven, but it worked well on me.

That sounds incredibly promising, but… is the game typical Nomura/Nojima spaghetti plot bullshit? See: newish Kingdom Hearts games (post KH2, though the problem started with that game), most of the plot changes in FFVIIR, etc. I think the FFVII Crisis Core is the best example of everything I hate about those games. I really can't stand that crap. I'm worried it would ruin the fun.
Yoshinori Kitase seems to be the best FF writer, since he is responsible for FFVI and FFVII (aka games considered the best in the series thanks to their plot). He wasn't writing anything past that and it shows.

The plot is definitely a tedious mess imo, the DLCs don't help much with that. It seems like the key to enjoying FF15 is how well you're able to tune all that out and just vibe along with the characters in that strangely empty world between mandatory plot dumps.

I wouldn’t say it’s as overly complicated and ridiculous as KH, just kinda meh. The real plot to me is the bond that you as the player create with the group of guys you travel the world with.

Agreed 100%. There was a genuine charm about the older Final Fantasy games that completely disappeared in the newer games in exchange for the Nomura-ian weeby fanservice-y bullshit. Nomura has an eye for visuals (he has a background in character design after all) but he wouldn't recognize good writing and plot if they hit him in the face.
Also, the franchise used to be much more experimental and varied (both visually and thematically) and nowadays they play it safe by either making a game about pretty boys and girls in a generic fantasy setting or trying to relive the Sakaguchian glory of the old games by remaking them. I wish they got a good writer and cared less about creating pretty samefaced characters. Scrote in vid summed it up well

No. 173532

>>173502
I have specifically checked and Nojima already was meddling in FFVII. But I guess Kitase was the main writer and therefore was keeping his bullshit to a minimum.
By the time I was able to play the FF games (around FFX-FFXII), they were a shadow of their former glory.
>I wish they got a good writer and cared less about creating pretty samefaced characters.
This would make ALL THE DIFFERENCE for the series. Ok if you have got to, keep same faced Mary and Gary Stus. Please give them vivid personalities and stories, I'm literally begging at this point. Someone pull the plug on Nomura and Nojima, they've been ruining the franchise for ages. Imagine thinking time jannies are a great idea lmfao.
Maybe I'm being unrealistic, but I think that FFVII Advent Children (or however it would be titled) could have been a good movie at least if someone competent wrote it. People didn't love FFVII for spectacular fights. I'm not saying they were not needed, but they shouldn't be the entire basis of the movie.

Not directly related but you just reminded me that I loved the characters he designed in Xenoblade 2 because they looked cool and had legit interesting backstories and goals. Jin felt like a fusion of Cloud and Sephiroth when it comes to his voice actors, his character design, his backstory, his personality before and after Lora dies, etc.but without the bullshit from the recent FF games. Imagine an unrelated video game being more similar to the classic FF games than the last FF games released these past 15 years without the devs even trying. Nomura should stick to just being a character designer.

NTAYRT but interesting video, thanks for sharing nonnie.
I don't agree with everything he said (and he speaks like a typical vtard) but if there's one thing he's right about, it's that Nomura IS a hack and a horrible writer. I fucking hated Advent Children and I hate when FF7 'fans' take Nomura's word as law.
I actually like the Remake a lot though admittedly I'm an Aerithfag who finds the idea of her time travelling to some extent intriguing, so I still hold hope for it.
I'm going to hold my tongue on a lot of things about the Remake until Part 2 eventually comes out, since I think that's when we'll really see what the hell the time jannies are really up to (picrel).

There's a playable character who, ironically enough, who's shirtless but his abs are covered in belts and he looks edgy as fuck but his personality is that he's a stupid chuuni with a cute Kansai accent so he's basically indirectly making fun of the Nomura belts. And he's not designed by Nomura.

I'm reading DGS1 at the moment too (currently on 5th case). The second case drove me nuts It feels like the original plan was for the sailor to be the culprit, sending his boa constrictor through the obvious pipes that you're not allowed to click on to snap the victim's neck (there wouldn't be bruising if he died that fast), and then framing the ballerina, but they pivoted at the literal last moment (maybe they decided it was too close to the original speckled band?) and ended up with a case that's really unsatisfying and doesn't hold together logically at all (even by AA standards-how do you faceplant into a bedpost hard enough to snap your neck and end up with no visible facial injuries?). It also felt like they only floated the idea of Kazuma dying by tripping over a small cat to soften the blow of him actually going out like a soap opera character (I saw a lot of people saying 'at least the culprit wasn't actually the cat' when commenting on the case)

I'm enjoying the rest of the game (aside from Iris and her hideous bobblehead loli proportions). It's very hand-holdy at first, but I think it's getting better about that as it goes along.

Ok then I just read it. Spoilers about previous games: My opinion is that the writers knew what they were doing, but they half assed it because they wanted the cute girl to be the culprit for shock value but they couldn't commit to it, at least not for what's "just" the second case. I can believe Kazuma snapping his neck because he fell on the ground or on the bedpost, because that kind of thing happens irl too often but again, it felt like a pretext to make sure the girl was "just" guilty of manslaughter. It doesn't even work because she only feels sorry for herself while sometimes saying "oh, poor guy, too bad he died. ANYWAY feel bad for me!! Abloobloo I stole a shit ton of money from my shitty ballet troupe and fled and misunderstood a random harmless guy because I'm beyond retard uwuuu pwease feel bad for meeee" no fuck off with that shit, case 2-3 was shit but it worked way better at making me feel bad for the culprit. This could be some kind of set up and maybe related Kazuma's mysterious goal though? Kind of like how Mia becomes even more important once she dies, who knows. I've been told way back that DGS1 wasn't that good because was meant to have a sequel, but now we have the sequel and the first game in one game so we'll see how it goes. Anyway, the third case was REALLY good at making the whole situation seem really frustrating and fishy near the end. I'm really looking forward to what's next.

I could sperg about Ace Attorney for the rest of my life. By the way, I love that Capcom used the bootleg Sherlock and Watson's names from the Arsène Lupin novels, it works way too well given that the ones in the game feel more like affectionate parodies instead of just modern versions of the originals. It's way too meta too, since Capcom had the exact same problem as Leblanc did, expect Leblanc got told off by Doyle himself back then. I bet the very first Arsène Lupin readers were also making the same jokes about how "Herlock Sholmes" is a stupid name too after Leblanc was threatened with a lawsuit. I'd love an Ace Attorney game inspired by these novels and short stories, not counting case 3-3.

>>173707
Spoilers for case 2 (in case anyone ITT wants to read it but hasn't yet):
The reason I assumed they made a late pivot in the plot is because the writing is obviously rushed leading to weird plotholes (why didn't she just wear the fake beard, or get the sailor to go grab her fucking cat? Why didn't the sailor clean up the other half of the bell? etc.) and because there are some things that seem like they should have art assets but don't and some art assets which are totally pointless for how much effort obviously went into them (the s-s-s-snake being the prime example). It just feels like it was stitched together from something else. You're probably right though, they wanted the murderer to be sympathetic but just couldn't find a way to make it work. It's frustrating, even she didn't seem to really know why she thought attacking Kazuma would improve her situation. Also 'I just pushed him and he accidently died' has always been the lamest shit. I'm hoping they reveal that there was more to what happened, we definitely haven't seen the last of Kazuma.

I really liked the culprit's design from case 1 (overall I'm not crazy about the character designs in this game though, they're a bit too professor layton). Thought the case itself dragged on a bit for a tutorial case, kept thinking it was going to end and then it didn't. Case 3 was fun, I liked examining the carriage. I like the jury mini-game too.

Is it true that they had to change the names because of legal issues? Isn't the character public domain by now?

If you like Lupin, you should check out the A.J. Raffles stories. They were written by Conan Doyle's brother-in-law, and they're about a gentlemen thief. They inspired the Lupin character.

How are you finding case 4?

No. 173716

>>173711
I love seeing the members of the jury shit talking each other, it's really fun. As for Sherlock Holmes being public domain… apparently it depends. I've seen a lot of people talk about it ever since DGS1 was announced in 2015 and apparently it kind of is, but to make it short the Arthur Conan Doyle's estate (probably just his grand-grand-grandkids idk) nitpick everything they can to get more £££. I mean, it's like how Lupin 3rd was a popular anime in France long ago but because of the Arsène Lupin franchise not being public domain yet the main character's name was changed to Edgar, but nobody ever gave a shit in Japan because the mangaka and the animation studios knew they weren't going to be prosecuted for any of that shit. I don't know all the technicalities, maybe things aren't applied the same way in different countries even when the people who own the IP know about the characters being reused by unrelated writers and companies? I don't even know.

No. 173723

>>173716
I looked it up, apparently a handful of the later stories aren't public domain in the US so the Conan Doyle estate always tries to make a legal case that media involving the Sherlock Holmes character uses 'elements' from these later stories in some obscure way. Apparently they've even tried to argue that media which characterizes Sherlock as cheerful and friendly is ripping off the last few stories, because he mellows out in them, so you have to portray him as grumpy or you're ripping them off.

I assume the point of contention was either that, or the games have a later case that's based on one of those stories that still aren't public domain.

Did you guys follow the absolute shitfest that is "Your Boyfriend" game?
>Your Boyfriend is a point-and-click, erotic, horror, visual novel and a dating simulator game developed by Fuboo.
I like horror VN so I looked into it and watched let's plays of the demo 2 first days. The best way I'd describe it is cringy, edgy and laced with forced queer representation. The cringe level is even more damning when you know that the dev, Fuboo, is a middle-aged woman. The game development seems to be on hiatus, some people are speculating that Fuboo just dropped the game and ran with the kickstarter/patreon money, which wouldn't be surprising, considering the amount of drama the game got itself into.
>There were grooming allegations (apparently debunked) against her and her husband who are in a poly relationship
>The voice for Peter, main antagonist/yandere guy, said something deemed as transphobic on Discord and was removed from the game because of it (kek)
The funniest shit IMO is how Fuboo is super autistic about not wanting minors to play Your Boyfriend when the overall edginess of the game alongside its shoehorned representation obviously panders to an underage twitterfag audience. I swear, all yandere type games are cursed

It really annoyed me that he dropped the murder weapon, I wish they'd found a more organic way to introduce the pen into the evidence. I just spent the whole case waiting for the game to let me present the pen's ink chamber, which made it a bit harder to get invested in the case's twists and turns.

There’s some girls-only Discords that you need to verify for in vc. I was in one server for a while that didn’t allow troons to apply since it could be abused by moids. They usually state that in the rules so you can just join a bunch of servers and check do they allow trannies or not.

Ok you know what? I need to talk about it some more. Obviously, spoilers for DGS1 and 2, but also spoilers for the entire series: DGS1 and 2 feel WAY more like a continuation of AA4 than AA5 and AA6 ever will. Barok and Klint's backstory was clearly related to Klavier and Kristoph's backstory, but with a twist and way more detailed and relevant, especially when it comes to how traumatized all the people involved became. Asougi felt like he was just inspired by Edgeworth instead of being a copypaste of the character. Playing the whole thing made me feel satisfied, the only thing I would have liked was some closure when it comes to Barok being Iris' uncle. I want them to get to know each other, but obviously that wasn't possible on-screen since that revelation happened at the very end of the very last case of the last game. As for gameplay, the story isn't relying on supernatural shit like in AA6 thank god, and it uses the jury system, which makes sense based on how AA4 ended. It's like Shu Takumi had all these ideas for sequels focusing on the events and characters of AA4 and couldn't use them for the main series because some incompetent bitch became the main writer for AA5 and AA6. At least AA5 can be seen as a standalone game, the story is self-contained, it's fun even though it's straight up Ghost Trick with lawyers when it comes to the story. But my god AA6 is a disaster. It should have never existed, and making Apollo have 209279530 dead fathers, 9274095°085 backstories and making him fuck off to not!India was a huge mistake. All for the sake of keeping Phoenix as the main character of the series for marketing reasons only. AA4 made the mistake of not developing everything because of the lack of time to write and add things to the game, and pic related makes me think Shu Takumi probably wanted to have direct sequels, or even a trilogy. We got irrelevant spinoffs about Edgeworth instead and games not even written by Shu Takumi, fucking great. I want more well-written spinoffs by Shu Takumi or anyone who's competent and not the guy who's responsible for AA5 and AA6, in case the main series turn to shit later on, so at least I will have something to play. I'm posting the pic that made me come back to vent, I have no idea how to show how frustrated I am.

I play games of nearly all genres (except sports, tekken-style fighting games, grand strategy) with a bit of focus on western RPGs, which are on average about 50 hours long, but I've finished a lot of games which were about 10 hours long

If you actually plan to play as much different games as possible (for instance if you want to get some extensive point of view on videogames, like me) it's actually not that hard to beat 30 or more video games a year. The steps for it are :
- get a PC so you can play all games (a laptop with 8GB of RAM can run and emulate nearly all games released before 2012)
- get a lot of games (humble bundle monthly, steam sales, or just download them for free)
- actually finish the games you started and don't start too many games at the same time (3 should be the limit, with 1 exciting easy game like assassin's creed and 1 not exciting but good game like morrowind then you cycle between them when you get bored)
- play games from genres with short length (FPS games and point and clicks can be beaten in a matter of days) or indie games, which are usually short because lol no budget

I also collect a lot of "the 100 best videogames you MUST play" lists, they pressure me to actually play the games and not diddle around

Started playing Disco Elysium finally, it's excellent and it's hard to stop but at the same time I've been depressed for a while now and the themes and general mood of the game really feel like they may be making me worse. Any of you experienced something similar? Not being in a mental state good enough to handle it? I've played many sad games but never felt similar to this one, maybe because it's so bleak and down to earth with it.

And on top of that I like replaying some games from time to time. I'd be too worried of having a shit ton of games like this even if I download them instead of having physical copies.

I just finished my second replay a couple of days ago. I haven't played many games but this one is probably my favorite, and when I first played it I was pretty depressed but the game somehow made me forget I was depressed (until a certain point in the game, which made me break down in tears at 4 am). The second time I played it I was a bit sad as well, but the game feels so familiar, so comforting, and it has so many funny moments.
The music in the game is amazing too and I also feel like I could listen to it for an entire day, it feels sad but also comforting. Like warm sadness.

Yes, there is an anime too, and there are more games, I know there are two games for the Turbografx, and there's one for the playstation and more for other consoles.
There are more ways to make it work but on my computer I got the mednafen emulator ( https://mednafen.github.io/releases/ ) and a program that is a user interface for it because it doesn't have one - you can still play games by dragging their file onto the mednafen.exe but I prefer it this way - mednaffe ( https://awesomeopensource.com/project/AmatCoder/mednaffe ). Then you just need to download the game and a bios file (syscard3.pce) and place it in the folder where you installed mednafen in the subfolder firmware. That's it, then you can play the game. I think… I forgot a little but I think that's all
Also I installed an emulator so I can play the game on my phone too (I played it for like an hour and loved it so much I had to have it on my phone too) if you have an android phone there are many emulators that can emulate multiple game systems, I have Retroarch, you have to download the "core" (it's the first option in the application) that says Turbografx, and then you have to put the syscard3.pce file somewhere on your phone too to play the game, I don't think it has to be in any specific folder. Yuna's little robot fairy is so cute.

Given the scarcity of GPUs right now I think this will be useful for you :
https://www.systemrequirementslab.com/gpu-compare

Since any GPU recommended in this thread might be out of stock where you live, your best bet is to find a GPU -not- out of stock that can run at least genshin (your most demanding game) on minimum recs, as it then should be able to run everything else you play. Of course do check beforehand that it's actually compatible with your motherboard and CPU, and if you haven't already, that you've got enough RAM to run everything (you'll need 8GB at least).

Genshin Impact at 60 fps on a $100 GPU is imo overoptimistic, at least for the next 5 years, but you can always get a lucky find. It's however a reasonable expectation for all the other games you play

Nta but it's basically simcity now. It's nothing like Wild World or Gamecube which are the only two games in the series without world building shit involved.

The crafting in new horizons just completely killed the series. Am I playing DayZ and trying to survive or am I here to relax and talk to my villagers? The dialogue has also gone to shit after Wild World which completely obliterates the purpose of playing Animal Crossing. These changes were made and added to appeal to the modern market.

I am genuinely curious, what is the appeal of Rune Factory 4? I always hear it praised but last time I tried it, I had to turn it off because I was so bored and never touched it again. I didn't play for long. Plus the bachelors look creepily like children (except the wolfish dude) and I couldn't get into them. If someone can change my view that'd be great bc maybe I can get enjoyment out of the 40 bucks I spent on it that year.

Sorry, I genuinely was triggered because I'm so angry that AC has not reached it's full potential and what imho would be a natural evolution of the series. Imagine Wild World or the GC one but with modern technology and characters. Shit, I'm sure they could throw in more designing etc., just please don't get rid of what made the game special. It was supposed to be a small town life sim, not a designer game…

For me its not the marriage aspect of the game that is appealing. I just love games like Harvest Moon and Stardew Valley where you look after crops and stuff. The story is very slow paced but there are 3 arcs if I remember correctly; but you don't have to rush through anything you don't want to. I'd say decide what you like best; farming or dungeon exploring (other areas will open up/be more accessible later.) Also realize that everything you do; be it eating,sleeping,going to the bathhouse, etcetc actually increases skills all around. There's also magic tomes you can buy (from a shop that won't be available for awhile) but you can also find them via exploring. I've been finding ways to keep myself entertained with it but its deffo very pick up and put down whenever you want due to how calm of a game it is. It might just not be your cup of tea

I love how it incorporates the cozy homestead aspects of Harvest Moon with typical action RPG components. I know some other games do this too but it just feels more complete, because there's actually an overarching story/campaign and "improve the town" is not the entirety of the plot. Another big one is the monsters. You don't just have farm animals but get to ride, tame and fight with cute and cool monsters you gather from the adventuring. I like the dating sim aspects too, a lot of typical otome have very young-ish looking characters that's just anime styling for you. I would say most of the upcoming RF5 bachelors at least look like adults with the exception of Cecil. Maybe you're just not into the genre.

It focuses more on decoration and aesthetics than the actual friendships/bonds with the animals. And I don't think the decorating is even done well! Terraforming is impractical and furniture placing should be more like how it is in the DLC. This really disappointed me because I've always been into Animal Crossing for the actual animals themselves. They were my friends when I had none. But in New Horizons they just feel so empty, so soulless. I don't care for making my island look pretty if I don't care for the animals living on it.
No Nooks updates ever and worst music in the entire series imo.
That being said of course everyone likes different things so if you find the idea of decorating your own island and making your own outfits fun then you'll probably enjoy it nonnie.
I actually like the DLC (tho HHD is superior because more actual buildings), but the main game doesn't feel enough like an Animal Crossing game to me.
>>178335
>>178596
>>178614
I totally agree.

Magician's Quest is a blatant Animal Crossing rip off for the DS but it's actually pretty good. It shakes up the formula a bit by having you go to a magic school with all the creatures. I recommend it to any anon who misses the feel of the older AC games. I really like the school setting in the game.
>>178600
It has a ton of content and I really like almost all of the characters. There's so much to do in the game and a lot of the things in it appeal very much to my autism like the weirdly in-depth crafting system. It's a superior Harvest Moon in almost every way but animal care to me. Maybe it's just not for you nonna.
>>178690
It's nice that they're giving us a wider age range of characters now. I wish the bachelorettes got some too. The only mature looking bachelorette is Alicia from RF2 and she's worst girl anyway. I'm so excited for 5 and happy gay marriage is finally a thing.

Hard agree on your point about the music. It sounds like it's bored of itself and feels really empty and uninspired compared to the older games.
The fact that they've somehow managed to weasel their way out of having to upgrade Nook's is insane to me. Upgrading the store has been a huge part of the series. That they'd just abandon that element now is so weird.
>>178746
The blandness of the characters really killed the game for me. The animals just feel like living decorations there to roam around your kawaii cottagecore aesthetic island. I miss all the nasty things they used to say.

I'm with everyone else about AC, I'm not much of a decorator just once every once in awhile, not this resource gathering. City Folk was my first Animal Crossing and I loved listening to them talk to me and others. I would regularly push villagers together just to have them shit talk each other to their faces.

I started Animal Parade and I'm not sure how to feel about it. I miss the 2D sprites, the town feels confusing to navigate, your character walks too slow (though I know you can ride animals later on), I don't like the lack of camera control and I don't like any of the bachelors, but I also don't want to play as a guy just to marry the bachelorettes who seem overall better to me. Chase is cute but kinda rude. I assume it's something that takes a while to git good? The animals are insanely cute though, especially the cows. I was tempted to name my farm Lolcow kek.

This is my favorite 3d HM game and I definitely understand where you're coming from anon as I prefer the 2d games and the charm of sprites over 3d models. The town will get easier to navigate as you get used to it and the walking speed is good for the amount of alloted time you get in a day. Plus there are so many cute clothing options and this is the only HM where you have a variety of pets this wide. Give it a little longer! Chase seems to be one of the most popular bachelors but he's not my taste personally. No one captured my heart like Wizard and sometimes I go back just to romance him all over again. I desperately want to see him in some sort of form in another game. Happy playing!

I think I'll always have a soft spot for DS Cute and it'll probably always be my favourite. Trio of Towns was also pretty good from what I remember and had a lot of content. That's one of the newer ones (and technically Story to Seasons but whatever). FoMT also has a place in my heart. Though I admit I'm much more of a Rune Factory fan overall.
>>178977
I'm still definitely giving it a chance. I've met Wizard but he won't really talk to me until I've gotten the Witch her things which I'm still working on. He's who I'm interested in along with Luke, because Luke is just so nice and friendly. He's really sweet and it's refreshing but I can't tell if I love or hate his dorky flame bandana kek. I've seen a lot of Wizard love and he is definitely intriguing!

No. 179038

My friend is watching that Arcane show on Netflix and I’ve come to the realization that the reason I never got into League of Legends (despite being interested in that type of game) is because it feels so soulless. The lore and characters and world seem like members of a huge corporate think tank sat around one of those long tables and came up with the concepts by saying “Look at Warcraft and Dota, how can we attract that crowd and their wallets?” It’s probably a tinfoil, but that’s just the vibe I get from the whole IP. Oh, and the animation style of this show is super ugly.

Can't really do anything about you thinking the style is ugly, but even if it's not to your personal taste Fortiche did a great job creating some incredibly smooth, detailed and realistic animations. I used to play LoL and couldn't give a shit about the lore back then, but of course it's designed to appeal to the masses, that's what big devs are supposed to do. But the show was honestly pretty engaging. Some of the characters are annoying (Jinx = manic misunderstood female Joker and Jayce = Cro-Magnon looking golden boy) but more so because I dislike those archetypes rather than the writing itself being bad. It sounds like you haven't actually seen any of it so you may still want to give it a shot. It's not a groundbreaking masterpiece obviously but I thought it was entertaining. If the concern about the game is the lore boring you then never fear, it literally has zero bearing on the actual experience of playing a match.

I'm going to put Amnesia: Machine for Pigs playthrough again while I'm trying to fall asleep.
This playthrough I'm watching is non commentary but the LPer does pause when reading the documents and letters, stopping to check the environment instead of rushing ahead. It's always comforting for me to watch. the voice acting and sound design are just inherently incredible to me. I get emotional everytime it gets to the ending where the machine begging Mandus to not destroy it, follows with a fizzling sound that almost sounds like a sniffle/sobbing, but clearly a sound that you hear from a steampunk train. This game sound design is smart as fuck and the voice acting direction in combination just invokes something indescribable in me.
And the story, I'm still trying to find the words to describe how I feel about it.
As someone who lives with depression for over a decade, and having my mental health tremendously set back due to covid, the hopelessness in this game resounds the emptiness/loneliness I always have. The need to end all despair because it hurts to see everything you hold dear will eventually get robbed from you just like how Mandus witnessed the two World Wars and saw the deaths of his children in the future. I love that the ending is grim but a hopeful message that we can still believe in people, the twenty first century we live in still have people fighting for injustice, for humanity's sake, for the fibers of our existence. We live in Horrors, and We will not become Pigs

I'm emotional again and just going to soak this in as I click replay on this youtube LP. Ugh, I love a good art game.

Fortunately when it first released I didn't pay much attention to the receptions. Only recently when I listened to a video essayist included a short clip of the game's voice acting I got emotional again and decided to rewatch it.

Lisa is a good choice, my personal tearjerker favorite is Everybody's Gone to the Rapture; I feel like it kinda flew under the radar despite both amazing writing and beautiful visuals. It's a walking sim where you find yoursef in this village where one day everyone just disappeared; and as you go you get to discover little snippets of the stories of people who lived there and what they've experienced. Very touching and strangely beautiful insight into how one would face their own final moments. I have never experienced a story quite like it before or after so if you like this kind of atmospheric, a bit philosophical kind of stories, this one is a must play

>>179659
I played LISA the painful a few years ago (I think it was before Undertale). The general feeling I got from it was sheer masochistic- You get punished in every action you take. It's not the kind of dialogue tree in Telltales where all choices have one result (aka your choice doesn't matter). Because the choices you make in LISA does interfere with the gameplay mechanic and progression. For me it's a really smart game design, however the game has squeezed out a sense of Dread until the end rather than a good cry.

For recommendation, I know this game has gone under some controversy real people were serious involved and not the kind of petty "omocat is a scammer and her friends are schizo" like Omori development, just don't look up too much
Night in the Woods is a go-to for a tear-jerker game. It's still American-centric but the characters' struggle is universal to millennial players.
