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.

I can't wait for SMT5 and Bayonetta 3. I don't care about the rest anymore. Once they're released I'll buy them, play them, and I'll just play the games I have over and over again.
Because it's a Musou game not targeted at men bawwww
I'm fucking happy there is a Musou game targeted at women, hope it's good.

I'm extremely hyped for psychonauts 2. I'm a little bothered by the £50 price tag because I'm cheap so I might just wait until I get good on a test that's coming up as a treat or something. Nitro rad has talked about how great it is, but I want to make my expectations a little realistic and say that it'll probably only be good as the original, which is still very good
I never played or know much about Touken Ranbu other than it's full of sword boys though the guys are super attractive. I'm pretty intrested in this game and hope to see more of the guys like Kogitsunemaru and Izuminokami Kanesada.
>scrotes are mad about no waifu characters.
Don't they have this other shit called Kancolle? Scrotes are truly spoiled.
It's too bad it's for Switch so the graphics are last gen trash.
I really hate that companies feel they can put in less effort for 'girly' series.

Scrotes are incredibly spoiled and entitled, just about all other japanese games pander to them with waifus and objectified women.
While we are getting breadcrumbs and old graphics.
There are so many characters who deserve to be in this game, I really hope they will add Nikkari. Not just because he is one of my husbandos, but they could do some really cool gameplay stuff with his ghost stand here.

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.
A behind the scenes on how this whole deal went through would be so cool to read about.

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! The levels really did blew me away just the clever little things in the level design and how DF visualized such abstract feelings and character's mental hang-ups.

So VTMB is my fave game and recently I got the itch to play it again but I already played it like 9734584 times…what mods can I install to make it feel a little bit more new and fresh?
File: 1633733582937.png (219.97 KB, 742x436, tumblr_pd5be3AxPx1urqk0oo1_128…)
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
Wow, that's really disappointing, not even the case for say NPC's and marauders besides scripted events ?
I'm going to stick with it until I get some more companies maybe the robot one at least.
File: 1634483378704.jpg (129.52 KB, 1280x720, kitaria-fables.jpg)
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?
I'm dying to play this, anon.
Sidenote, the price disparity for DE between a PC platform (Steam, GoG) and Nintendo Switch is comical.

Is anyone else enjoying Neo the World Ends with You? I love the game! I never thought it would be this addicting but the character writing and development is so good and I like the ost as well.
File: 1634584428223.jpg (116.82 KB, 1200x675, 334591.jpg)
Yeah the one quest where you have to have a piece of candy in your inventory when you go to that mouse seems to trip up a lots of players. Anyway I just finished the game. It's rough around the edges but I hope they'll add more stuff or make a sequel cuz its so dang cute. Unfortunately no postgame stuff either so now I'm just farming pumpkins for cash.
Thinking I'll play og Nier or FF7R next. Sakuna looks nice but I hear the rice farming is actually quite challenging and I don't feel like doing that rn.
File: 1634596067922.jpg (341.53 KB, 1920x1080, blackbook_fight.jpg)
Has anyone played Black Book? It looks so cool.. I wanted to play it until I found out it was a deckbuilder. I usually prefer video games where you're just a character running around doing stuff. I don't know if I would like it.
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.

New game by ConcernedApe got announced. It looks pretty similar to Stardew Valley except you're a chocolatier, not a farmer
'Haunted'? Saw ghosts in it too. That's interesting!
Looks cozy but I really hope the NPCs are better this time around. Not sure how much of an unpopular opinion this is, but I really didn't like most of Stardew's cast. I think it may be better since this video showed you can reply to casual convos with answers, which I don't think Stardew had a lot of. Maddie is cute! His art has definitely improved.

Props to him for not promising anything too unbelievable, still working by himself and giving free updates to Stardew instead of paid DLC.
No matter what I think of his games, I respect him.

Disco Elysium is apparently a special beast that's hard to compare with other games but if you don't mind tactical combat with the RPG, have you tried Shadowrun Dragonfall? It's currently dirt cheap in Steam's Halloween sale.
There are three Shadowrun RPG games in this series. The first is merely alright and I haven't played Hong Kong, the third one.

Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines is an rpg that has a strong focus on dialogue and often let's you find non-violent solutions to problems.
However, it also has quite a few mandatory stealth/combat sections, so it might not be what you're looking for.

Now they see me on steam logging 30 hours over the weekend on Grim Dawn for $17 lmao idk just feels funner and more engaging even though I'm not even into grinding and dungeon crawling!!
Kingdom of Amalur is free this month for PS+ owners. I immediately asked myself 'where did I see this game being recommended???' and then I realized that it was this nonnie >>133439

I've been really enjoying Let's Build a Zoo. It came out on PC a few days ago. I feel like good management sims are hard to come by these days. You can make hybrid animals too which is cute. It's easier to manage than Planet Zoo, but it's still has a learning curve and isn't too easy. Very cozy overall. Do any other anons like zoo/management games??
AYRT, I'm a huge fan of Zoo Tycoon since I was a kid!
In Let's Build a Zoo, I'd say it's a bit more complex than some of the aspects of Zoo Tycoon. Personally it fills the same itch of just wanting to see another day and perfecting the zoo that Zoo Tycoon does.

Based! For RF5, none of the boys stand out to me, but I'm so happy gay marriage is finally in because this girl has really caught my eye.
In RF4, I liked Xiao Pai a lot and would have considered her if gay marriage was a thing (sprite swapping doesn't count). I don't mind playing as a guy but I prefer playing as a girl in games like RF.
I also agree that Frey is a nice character. I like that she looks like Miku.

Read a review of Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One and the dude reviewing complains that Sherlock "misgenders a transman". Turns out it's actually a woman disguised as a man, who admits this. Why the fuck would you refer to her as a transwoman in the review?! Glad this game is based enough to not trans someone in the 1800s. When women did have to disguise themselves as men to do more dangerous jobs and get more opportunities.
He is that kind of douchebag personified!
And the woman isn't "trans". Fucking beardy bro reviwer basically just admitted himself that he is uncomfortable with a masculine woman.https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/sherlock-holmes-chapter-one-review/

I accidentally bought a hacked OP item called Viskam in Fire Emblem from one of the visiting online travelers for 1g (player added an enemies item through hack and attached it to online traveler.) I had it in my convoy for a while before using it lol the description is "a leather shield" though it's a magic sword with insane range and no durability. I looked it up after realizing I could kill anyone kek
Remember when I said I would play Bravely Default and SMT3 at the same time? I kinda gave up on that and I'm playing SMT5 instead. I hoped I could have enough time to beat SMT3 before SMT5 but I only managed to beat Thor and I was about to start the 1st Kalpa, and then I received my copy of SMT5. I also received my copy of DGS1 and 2 on the Switch, but I'm European and it's an American copy, no idea if there are DLCs I'm missing because of that.>>170778
What happened exactly? I don't give a shit about Fate/Stay as a whole but the Japanese fanbase seems unhinged so I'm curious.
isn't steins;gate scrotey as fuck and full of waifus (one of them resembling a retarded child), which is why it's hailed as a masterpiece? IDK the plot may be legitimately good in some ways, but the vn wouldn't get the fame and recognition if it was otome. Fuck, all of the titles mentioned by OP have scrotey elements (Cafe Mort, ewww). IDK if op should play if they don't want scrotey shit (though I guess most vns either are scrote stuff or otome with more or less focus on romance).
Or I guess I know: I would recommend Club Suicide based on my limited experience (played the single translated) – great writing, interesting characters, psychological focus. It has strong themes of depression though, so of course it's only for people that don't mind that type of content

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. Much more to do now and the different combat when changing characters during fights is so fun to play around with.

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. Also, Ryunosuke is cute.

Same anon I also cried several times, love our chocobros
>>173452>>173435>nayrt, but this game made me cry so much.
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.
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
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. >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.

>>173502>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.
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).
Looks visually amazing but holy shit what an awful song.
Also agree with what >>173610
said. My first thought was that pedos would like it. What is the actual point in the game?
File: 1639338060850.jpg (158.51 KB, 1200x675, slut.jpg)
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.
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?
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.

Last case is great, isn't it? I like cases where the culprit is a guy in a situation that has spun wildly out of his control
I just started the second game, the pacing seems a lot better and they're really piling on the intrigue about all the unanswered questions in the first game.
I also started the second game so now I'm in the middle of the second case. I really felt like the writers added a lot of mysteries in the first game on purpose and the message in morse
confirmed it in the first game, so I have a feeling the next cases will be very intense. Maybe Shu Takumi saw how memorable the original trilogy became thanks to how connected the cases were and he anticipated everything to make sure he'd make a coherent story with more than one game. About the first case I don't feel even remotely bad for the victim, fuck that bitch. She got what she deserved, the journalist was a retard but he doesn't deserve prison. Susato in the male student uniform was very cute btw.

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

There is some decent ones in otome
I only beat 2 games this year and replayed 1, but I'm currently playing 4 games that don't have endings yet.>>175461
Only if I really like it and the achievements aren't too hard or require multiplayer.
Platted Cyberpunk and Death Stranding because most of the trophies were just story and simple grinding. And did a playthrough on the highest difficulty with Deus Ex HR and MD because I really love the games. But I didn't even try with Yakuza Kiwami because I knew I couldn't be bothered with the higher difficulty fights.
fair if the achievements require multiplayer it's a no go for me too
I thought the achievements looked easy for y0 and as it turns out that is definitely not the case
was gonna go for 100% in kiwami but I'm reconsidering that now after all this minigame torture >>175620
okami was the first game I 100% and one of my favorite games ever, so nostalgic
same I suck at the minigames so they took me forever to get through honestly was not worth it for the achievement >>175636
I'm slow too so I end up wasting so much time going for the 100% lol I don't know what compells me to do it
The very few times I've tried I gave up half-way through, either because that was too difficult or because I was getting sick of the game and wanted to go back to the main story and beat the last boss. I also never play online games, so besides games like Animal Crossing or the Sims most of the games I play have a clear beginning and a clear ending.>>175540
The few times I play one game for that long it's because it's my second or third run. I like it when games have a new game + feature or when replaying it is worth it.

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.
If you're ready to bite the bullet grand strategy games (not Total War games) are as political as you can get, crusader kings 2 is one of the easier ones to get into
Otherwise Splinter Cell, Deus Ex and Metal Gear Solid for blackops "plausible deniability" politics, The Witcher (especially 3), Fallout New Vegas and Suikoden I-II for war politics, Bioshock for Ayn Rand politics (lol) and Sim City 4 for city politics>>175909
The Chzo Mythos series
File: 1640899973159.png (4.05 KB, 164x71, W2JqosA.png)
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>>176421
I'd like to state that those were all acquired with steam sales and humble bundle promotions for a bit more than 10 years, so it's less financially irresponsible than it looks
I had the same experience with The Cat Lady, I was depressed when I played it and was in tears for most of the game. If you feel like you cannot handle it emotionally maybe have breaks where you play something more simple and fun (maybe a game that you used to play as a kid)?
I love Disco Elysium and the soundtrack is indeed beautiful
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

I really like the way it looks, but I'm not really into zombie survival games. It would be cool to have a mystery game that had the same style and environments.
I didn't bother after I realized how much RNG upon RNG it would be that first week. Don't feel obligated to waste time just because your boyfriend wants too.
Finally started New War and it's sort of annoying how much time they spent making up mechanics that will probably never be used again. Also they really need to stop trying stealth.

Tbh we just do a day off and on farming Aya and then we spend the rest of the week trying to open the relics with a radshare and it tends to work out well. I don't want to get frost prime or ember prime but I know why he wants me to get them and I think its sweet he really wants me to have a wide variety of warframes to play with. I'm just starting to get really burnt out which is probably more my fault because I've been farming for resources when boyfriend is working.

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 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!

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.
Here you go nona.
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.
I think being in solitude for two years in a round does make me appreciate these games more, like a kind of foreign language someone has spoken and only now I can understand it fully.

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

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.>>179666

Rakuen, This War of Mine, Valiant Hearts, Soma, Last Day of June, To The Moon.
I personally replay Hello Charlotte series when I’m super emo but it might not be everyone’s cup of tea cuz well, it’s the kind of game that attracts danganronpa genderspecial kinshits reee
I frequently replay Night in the Woods for the atmosphere and the music. I loved my second playthrough where I tried to find every secret possible and was delighted at how many random people and happenings you go through as you explore the town.
To me the game is sad, but in a very comforting way. Don't know much about the controversy, but eh. Not gonna bother looking it up.
I like ff8 because theres no need for level grinding, and I loved getting magic, summons and cards.
I love old rpgs but level grinding is the worst. Did it in ff7 before getting in the temple of the ancients and holy hell that was boring but i really wanted to have aeris with her last limit break. First time I played it I ended up in the crater with a low level party (and messed/swapped materias cus i was a dumb kid) and god, that was hard.
Also to this day I have no idea what ff8 was about, the story was kinda bad
Kek true it can be bad and frustrating, maybe because of that, when it’s good the chemicals in my apebrain really go crazy. We’re all just in an abusive
>>180286> Wonder if they will fuck over Sony with exclusivities.
which titles are you thinking of nona?
Back then when Bethesda was announced being bought by microsoft, there wasn't much panic and (people practically didn't care) since more people are gravitated towards PC ports now. Playstation exclusives are… fine, but the PS5 is coming down to a shortage (along with graphic cards shortage because NFTbros fucking it up for everyone).
What do you think? What's your prediction about the consequences of this buyout?
Activison owns Call of Duty, so that's a big casual audience that Sony might lose if the next game is PC/Xbox only.
The new Starfield game from Bethesda is PC/Xbox only and we'll see if the new Elder Scrolls also follows suit.
I'm going PC because I'm sorta looking forward to Starfield as an open world space game. And Obsidion teased a sequal to Outer Worlds. While Playstation has Deathloop which is also on PC. And Death Stranding eventually got ported so any further Kojima games will probably be on PC too.

A game I want comes out 3 days earlier in US than in EU, and I don't want to wait 3 days to play muh precious vidya when I'm already wanting to play it right now.
I'm trying to look into it and it seems needlessly complicated to me. I don't see why EU has to wait 3 more days anyway when the EU and US versions are identical.
I'm mostly worried about DLC incompatibilities. It's a kind of niche game series so I'm not sure where else to ask about this.

I find the animation to be technically incredible but I'm not going to watch it. I tried to get into LOL in the past, coincidentally when Jinx was revealed, hate those sorts of games. I can't believe they took her and spun a whole gritty angsty story when she's one of those hyperactive manic crazy-girl characters, it actually made me realize I'm sick of this trend of dark tragic stories that emotionally exhaust their viewers over years to get devotion out of them. Why can't franchises be fun anymore?

What the fuck is up with the DLC packaging for the Steam version of Hitman 3? Intentionally confusing so new players might want buy everything including content they may already own (FYI you don't need to buy the Trilogy edition or access passes if you already own Hitman 1 and 2). Such a shame because I've been waiting an entire year for this and I've heard that it's actually a really good game (at least unless you play VR, which is said to be quite glitchy).
Will do, Thank you !>>180824

Bravely Default! Good tier music, the characters banter are fun (though occasionally tropey anime crap, but well, jrpg be jrpg). Incredible world building and minor and villain characters are well-rounded. The gameplay is addictive & fun to experiment with different jobs. The ending still got me So emotional.
Never got to play Ni no Kuni nor FF12.
SMT4 is unfortunately the bottom of the list for me, the music is FIRE and the villain in it is one of my fav smt characters, however the experience in general was a chore to go through (story, character banter, tropey craps). It has good replayability, and can be fun to try different builds.

Princess Maker but for egirl. Somewhat intrigued now. >>180914
Sounds similar to Princess Maker to me. You raise a little girl as your daughter and manage her schedule and there are a ton of different endings you can get. I've only played 2 and 5 but I'd recommend 5 since that one allows you play as a mother too and there's more to do. You can easily play 2 in your browser though and it felt more challenging to me.

Slightly OT but, I bought a ton of games over the Steam winter sale (most of which aren't even downloaded, admittedly) and so far I'm absolutely loving picrel. It's challenging but not so difficult that you can't beat bosses/enemies within a few tries, and I think the atmosphere is charming and the combat/gameplay is really fun. Also thanks to the anons talking about LISA upthread, I've been meaning to buy that one for a while. It hurts, but it's so good.

Finally got around to finishing DGS2. I enjoyed it, but I did have some mixed feelings. DGS1 is a setup for DGS2, but I don't think that justifies how bad some of the stuff in that game was the sequence of events leading to Asogi's amnesia and how easy it was.
DGS2 picked up a lot, but the pacing of case 4 and 5 bugged me. The culprits of all the mysteries are obvious Jigoku shows up out of nowhere with a suitcase that looks as though it was designed for the sole purpose of trafficking corpses and loudly announces that he didn't have to get his luggage checked at the border, the Professor had to be a rich Englishman because of the collar, Stronghart is just Gant, and there are only two characters in the entire game with turquoise eyes. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing since it's common in Ace Attorney games to know who the culprit is going into the trial. The problem is that Naruhodo flounders around in circles not really making any progress through case 4, and then in case 5 everything gets solved back to back without giving any of the revelations time to breathe. Also, fuck that stupid hologram twist.
File: 1642959423817.jpg (80.27 KB, 750x690, FJrxbKGXsAAYu1b.jpg)
Are you the anon who played at the same time as I did? About Asogi, I kind of agree that the whole amnesia thing was a bit too much for me, but I've read that Asogi being present in DGS2 wasn't planned at first and he was included here because he was the most popular character of the first game when it was released in Japan only so that explains it. I wonder how 1-2 would have been if him surviving was actually planned every since DGS1's development. I didn't mind anything you mentioned otherwise except the hologram shit too. I loved all the implications that Sherlock was pretending to be retarded ever since the beginning, it's more like the way it was presented that bothered me. It was a bit too good to be true coming from an idiot who doesn't even bother getting patents for his inventions. I wish something more subtle was used like with the really cute cellphones but video games are mostly a visual medium and the dialogs aren't voiced except for some very specific lines and cutscenes so everyone hearing him because of some kind of telephone like system wouldn't have been as impactful. I liked that despite Iris' status as a child genius it wasn't really that relevant and her having a phd was just a red herring for Mikotoba being the "real" Watson, since she acts like a child during both games. By the way, I didn't even notice the eye color because I played on handled mode all the time but I somehow managed to guess that Klint was Iris' father at the beginning or at the middle of case 5 before it was even relevant but I don't even remember how exactly besides the relevant dates being mentioned over and over again, but I was shocked I was correct.
Also, unpopular opinion but Jigoku looks kinda hot in that suit. I swear I'm not into old men though.
We need an AAI like prequel with Sherlock and Mikotoba

>>181125I think we did talk about how Kazuma passing out from falling and nearly snapping his neck was kind of weird, without even being an expert in that kind of thing I can't imagine how that shit can work without him being physically injured beyond losing consciousness. Did Sherlock give him CPR or some shit? Would that even work? I'd imagine it's the kind of accident that either cause immediate death or just hurts you a little and you'd be able to get up less than a minute later with no in-between but what do I know.I also started suspecting him in the last case in DGS1 when the blond pretty boy whose real name I forgot showed up in the shop. It seemed he was bullshitting on purpose. DGS2 made it a bit more obvious, especially when he says himself that anti-gravity devices don't exist, while still insisting on explain his shitty hypothesis. The scene with the floating furniture looked really cool though, the games used 3D way better than DD and SoJ. I guess I just suspected him of having other kind of goals, especially since the big plot twist in DD. The way his real goals was presented was really amazing though, I love him.
Beating this game a few weeks ago really made me want to replay the entire series. DGS1 and 2 had a few flaws but they're definitely not as horrible and disappointing as in SoJ so it almost gives me hope for an eventual AA7 despite Apollo's entire characterization being butchered by Yamazaki.
File: 1642971185708.png (740.66 KB, 1000x1415, artbook.png)
>>181146Also stuff like 'why didn't she wear the disguise when she visited Kazuma?' 'why didn't she just ask one of the crew members to get her cat back for her since she was supposed to be laying low?' 'how did he manage to grab her earring if he was pushed from behind?' 'why go to the risk of drugging an entire cruise liner of people on the off chance one of them would notice a small boat sailing up alongside them and be suspicious enough to investigate?' (in fairness this one can be answered by 'the crew are stupid'). I'm willing to be a little more forgiving about his head injury since the autopsy report was revealed to be forged so we don't really know anything about the actual state of him immediately post-bedpost, and they could have just used his headband and hair to hide the external wound for the photo.
With Sherlock, what I noticed was he always understood what Ryunosuke was saying instantly and never seemed surprised or defensive. He could pick up the thread smoothly whenever Ryunosuke corrected him, like he already knew how it was all going to play out. Sometimes he'd stick to his guns about the second part of his hypothesis even if it no longer made any sense because Ryunosuke had changed the first part. It's easy to get swept up in the flow of the dance of deduction parts because of how 'video-gamey' they are, but if you think of how it would flow as normal dialogue you can kind of see what's really going on. Everything else about him was a mystery to me though, most of the reveals with him actually surprised me.
It's hard to explain, but DGS2 felt much more like the original AA trilogy than the second trilogy did (I mean AA4-6), despite not having any characters in common. It's a great adventure game, my only complaints are pretty minor issues with the pacing and certain plot details.
If they make an AA7 I hope they find a way to keep the séance mechanic, it's one of the few things I really remember from AA6. It's basically just a better implemented version of the security camera mechanic from AA1-6, so it's not like they'd necessarily need a supernatural character for it to work.
>>181179Everything can be answered by this: the ballerina was absolutely retarded. Literally room temperature IQ.
I 100% agree with you, DGS1 and 2 really have the same vibe as the trilogy, it's obvious Shu Takumi was left to his own device. AA4 was great because it was a nice change from the trilogy, the atmosphere was way more heavy and depressing and the fact that the story makes it pretty obvious that Apollo and Klavier kept being manipulated by everyone around them for other people's benefit was very interesting
, the only real problem is that some parts of the story feel incomplete because of shitty deadlines during the game's development. DGS feels like what AA5 should have been if not for Yamazaki becoming the writer for AA5 and AA6, given the focus on the jury system as part of the gameplay and not just as a part of the story
, Barok's backstory which is very similar to Klavier's role compared to their respective big brothers
I still enjoyed AA5 and 6 despite some glaring problems until the last two cases in AA6 and Apollo's shitty new backstory and him staying in not!India for no good reason.
Yamazaki just put as many shitty plot twists as possible for the sake of meme plot twists, not to tell an actually good story, but he fucked off from Capcom, which is why I'm kind of hopeful.

>>181197Maya's family feel like something that could plausibly exist within the ace attorney universe, a trashy religious organisation full of backstabbers who seem to think they're above both the law and OSHA. We have those in real life as well, they're just not actually magic. It's a little silly that Maya's mother was still exiled even once Maya had proved she didn't do anything, especially when her aunt had committed murder, Maya had been on trial for murder like three times and Bikini probably had a bunch of guests die of pneumonia at her torture retreat, but whatever.
Nothing about Khurain feels like a real country, everything's way too extra to come across like a functioning society. It comes across physically too small for a country as well, I guess because we only see a few locations and they're all close to each-other. I know you have to suspend your disbelief for games like this, but it's hard to give a shit about the stakes when they've gone this far beyond believability. It becomes about this children's cartoon political conflict rather than about the people and their internal conflict. Like in 2-4, it wasn't about getting the international assassin, it was about getting the guy who put Adrian through all that shit. You just kind of feel annoyed that the characters you like have to go through this farce.

Pokémon Legends Arceus is pretty damn fun nonnas.
I haven't enjoyed a Pokémon game since XY (besides the new Pokémon snap, that's very fun.) It really does feel like a breath of fresh air and I like the new mechanics it's introduced. It definitely has more of an emphasis on the 'catch them all' aspect of Pokémon rather than the 'beat all the gym leaders, elite 4 and then the champion' which I prefer.
If you have the money to spare or are a pirate I recommend it.

I'm glad you're having fun nonna. I genuinely get scared whenever I see an alpha. This bad boy right here killed off 3 of my team. I think we're about the same point in the game. I'm excited to go on and see more Pokémon and mechanics introduced. The side quests are pretty fun so far, like the Bidoof one.

Has anyone played this game? I heard about it in some article and it peaked my interests, but all the steam reviews are rating it positive "because communism" which makes me think its for antiwork reddit scrotes and has cringe dialog. I'm down to play it if that's not the case though. I like detective stuff
Yess! You'll like this game if you>like narrative heavy games (don't mind reading a lot or listening to sometimes long dialogues)>like RPG elements (XP points, skill building, customizing appearances, etc)
You know how in RPGs your MC can have a neutral, evil and good personality and this can influence your dialogue options among other things? In this game the same happens, only with political leanings, the MC can become a communist, a fascist or a pacifist depending on your choices. There's no antiwork narrative and it doesn't try to shove down any sort of political agenda down your throat.
I personally loved it, especially for the writing and the loveable characters, but there are also other things to love like the beautiful concept art and the soundtrack
You can be a fascist in the game too, nonnie
. I loved it and I consider it my favorite game ever, although I haven't played that many. The art in the game is beautiful, and so is the music. The story is very well-made. I plan on replaying it for the third time in a few months.
It's a shame that a lot of scrotes like it for the wrong reasons, especially since the game is quite self-aware when referencing politics. Of course it's not surprising that it would attract the cringey redditbro crowd, since those Chapo guys voiced a few characters in the first version of the game. You won't have to listen to their horrible voices though, the final cut replaced them.
YES, I adored this game and consider it one of my favorites of all time. The theme of identifying with certain politics in dialogue is there but only in a very satirical way, it 100% skewers all of them. That aside, even though you play a middle-aged white dude the story is so, so human and touching and the world is the perfect mix of reality with surrealistic elements. The mystery aspect is good too. As >>182319
said it's heavily dialogue and plot-based so obviously if you're looking for an action game or platformer it's not gonna be your jam, but if you appreciate a good narrative and interesting choices, you'll love it.

I think I understand why men like the joker now. I want to try getting all the endings in needy streamer overload now.
Did anyone else play this yet? Have you gotten all the endings yet or are you working towards it?

hey! still working on it but haven't made much of a progress tbhthe nymphomaniac ending combined with how glorified sex has become amongst zoomers, made me feel fucking depressed
I kind of want to play it because the idea is interesting and I feel like I may really like the heroine. The opening song makes me hate how scrotey the premise of the game actually is:>A downer just for you, needy girl>Break me, love me, forgive me, go crazy>A memory only showing you/there is no God>your own 2D girl
also, that random scrote comment>A game about taking care of a mentally unstable girl….Intriguing and cool gameplay, do give this game a try!
I know that the song lyrics are supposed to be about the relationship between the streamer and the viewer, but of course, they also address the gamer.
I would love it if the game was written with women in mind and from heroine's POV. I hate that is some 'your very own mentally ill cutie to own and abuse' scrote shit. Don't tell me it isn't part of the appeal. Fuck off, I don't want scrotes jerking off to my miserable existence. Though who am I kidding, they've been doing that to mentally ill women for centuries while locking them up for easy access and control.
At least I'm wise enough to find the scrote fantasy part of the game disgusting and not 'ugh I wish someone would take care of and love me like this'. I'm probably still gonna pirate it and complain here because I want to form my opinion on it.

I recently played a game called project zomboid with friends and I was surprised by how fun and intuitive it was. It not too easy but it's not super difficult either.
You can't really beat you just have to see how long you can survive in a zombie apocalypse before you inevitably die and I thought I wouldn't like it but it's actually really fun. I haven't tried playing by myself yet but I read that the atmosphere gets stronger when you do.
I actually said it as a good thing.

You have a damn PS4 and a Switch but not a computer that can run games?
Well shit, I guess I'm the weird one here since I've always had outdated phones and PC instead of consoles.
I prefer PC because it can emulate lots of stuff, even if it's an old toaster.
The shipping list included at the shipping bin right? It's not entirely accurate cause I've ran through and shipped crops I got from the sharance dungeons.ive already tried harvesting stuff that had the lowest amount of gold earned accumulatively from all sales but had no luck.>>182636
I'm doing the "almost every crop" one that doesn't include emery flowers. I read giant versions weren't included as well. I've harvested one of every gold crop along with stuff from all the fruit trees. I'm just going through and slowly harvesting everything but man it's tiring lol.

i'm playing unpacking for the switch right now and it's sooo nice and cozy. you basically unpack and decorate apartments throughout a person's life after the person moved. highly recommend if you want something relaxing and calm.
ayrt, i just played the 2012 stage and i can't believe i got sad for her. i was so proud of her for finding a bf
and then she moves back into her old room and you have to hide the pic of her and her ex.

Many otome games are tagged with "anime", "visual novel", "romance", etc. so the scrote-ass algorithm occasionally gives you these suggestions based on those tags because they're pretty popular or recently shilled games.
My steam library consists of otome and visual novels, dear. Alongside typical AAA titles, dear. This is under the featured tab of the steam sale as you can see at the top of the pic, dear. >>182819
My exact problem. Even the character customization and female protagonist tags are being used as tags for porn games. Go look at the top 5 lists for visual novel or romance, it's all porn

You are actually agreeing with me. Furthermore, you wouldn't see any of those games if you hadn't purposely ticked the "Adult Only Sexual Content" box in the store content preferences options

You can fine tune which content you don't want to see with the tag exclusion option. While excluding "nudity" would remove a lot of normal games, excluding "NSFW" or "hentai" should achieve what you want to do

Idk if anyone here is into Pokemon G/S/C but there's a rom I've been playing lately that's super comfy called Pokemon Crystal Clear. It's a Crystal hack that turns the game into a free-roaming one, lets you choose an avatar and customize its colors, explore new areas, have a Pokemon follow you, among many other things. It's also got a chaining feature that makes it easier to catch shinies. It's also got (IMO the best feature) hidden "palettes" for Pokemon, based on their IVs and the nickname you give them. So like you catch a Vulpix with certain IVs and name it "Snowy", it becomes a pale icy blue color. I fucking love this hack, it's so fun and relaxing.

Just finished it, I sadly got the sex ending because I wanted to reduce her stress asap and was close to 1million subs…but I felt disgusted because she seems way too young. The scrote that our player character is grosses me out, her tweets reveal that he smokes weed and annoys her even if I picked the most pampering options.
It reminded me how fucking sad and exhausting being a streamer or youtuber is, especially when my favourites start pumping out soulless videos daily and doing cheap sponsorships. Also Kevin just played it so it sure blew up.

I also think the platforming and combat seems fun. But I'm not sure if I should buy something different or wait for the new Kirby. Other games I'm consider are No More Heroes 3, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon™: Rescue Team DX, the Spyro™ Reignited Trilogy, or Immortals Fenyx Rising™ (especially because it's on sale right now for super cheap)

Playing Drakengard rn and I cannot wait until I play Drakengard 3. I plan to skip 2 for obvious reasons.
I'm concerned about 1 thing about D3:>is it true that one of the villains has a 1000 years old shots as her fucktoy? Because ew
I recall Suikoden III being pretty good about this. Chris (one of the main characters) is a knight captain and basically revered as a hero. Suikoden is known for its huge cast and I can remember quite a few cool women among the companions. In a similar "gotta catch em all" companion game, Radiata Stories was very underrated and has a good female lead/female companions.
Maybe too obvious but all of the Final Fantasy games are pretty great. If you want girls only then there's X-2. They do have sexy outfits depending on which classes/dress spheres you're using but I can't think of anything coomerish in the story itself. Actually there is one "massage" mini game with the big boobie villainess that's somewhat suggestive but nothing sexual is actually happening.

>>184260>This fan game is a hack of Pokémon Crystal featuring around 252 Pokémon from Gens 1-4 along with Sylveon from Gen 6. It also incorporates elements from post Gen 2 games such as abilities, items and the special split.>Like many Pokémon games, the story is simple. While in an unknown region, the son/daughter of Champion Lance ends up in the region of Naljo due to an earthquake that splits the trainer up from his/her mother. You then head off the collect the eight badges to challenge the Pokémon League. While this premise is standard and familiar, the journey puts a new spin on the formula. Prism allows you to do something you typically never could do in the mainline Pokémon games: play as the Pokémon themselves. In the first segment of the game you come across your starter a Rock/Ground Larvitar and navigate a cave as it until you eventually keep it permanently. There a few more parts of this game where you get to play as Pokémon. You’ll battle wild Pokémon, talk to other Pokémon and solve puzzles. They offer a nice change of pace from entering towns, fighting the gym leader and fighting trainers on routes, but there is one part that involves Magikarp in which I found frustrating.>As a hack of Pokémon Crystal, considerable changes have been made. Aside from the obvious map layout, as mentioned in the introduction, mechanics and Pokémon have been added from later generations. One of the notable ones is character customization introduced in Pokémon X & Y. When starting the game you get to choose your gender, skin tone and hairstyle. The color of the hair and clothes can be changed, but are linked together. They look funny in the sprites, but there are more skin tone options in Prism than in Pokémon Sun & Moon. >A cool addition, in my opinion is the orphanage which allows you to donate Pokémon for points and you can use those points to adopt a Pokémon that you can’t get in the wild. https://hardcoregamer.com/features/articles/opinion/is-pokemon-prism-worth-playing/247574/

That's so cool! I love how you can play as a pokemon too. I will try that out too. I downloaded Pokemon Crystal Clear but then I realized I miss the beautiful graphics of Pokemon R/S/E, so I looked for hacks for those games, and I downloaded Pokemon ROWE; I love it so far, I think the pokemon level depends on how many badges you have so you can go anywhere you want in any order; also>you can just jump into a body of water and start surfing (no need for a pokemon with surf or a textbox asking you if you want to surf) >you can fly if you have a flying type pokemon with you>your pokemon can follow you around (some of them) >you can change your pokemon's nickname at the pokecenter>you can see in their stats screen how much they like you>in battle your moves are colored depending in whether they're effective or not>you can turn off EV and IVs>there's a guy who will trade your pokemon back to you so you can evolve pokemon who evolve by trading>(this is important) the nurse at the pokecenter just says let me heal your pokemon and bows when she is done. No need to press A 5 times.
And there's so many pokemon!! I've never seen some of the new ones, I feel like a kid again. I caught a Rockruff, it's so cute and strong. So far I have encountered just a few graphics glitches, like there seem to be ghosts of sprites floating in a tile sometimes.

I'm interested in Alterier Sophie 2 since I like crafting and I think her design is really nice. Ryza seems the most beginner friendly but I don't like her or even the guy designs. >>185361
Ayesha has a really nice design and her story intrigues me but I heard her game has a fixed camera and that would bother me. I just want a pretty animu crafting game.

File: 1644487849132.jpg (19.75 KB, 220x330, Omori_cover.jpg)
What's your thoughts on Omori?
Just finished playing this game and thought the Dreamworld sequences were the only redeemable part of the game. The rest but especially the ending feels like gen Z 2deep4me bait. It's like this game was made for 14 year olds. Hated the ending so much it made me regret not just playing the hikki route and ignoring those stupid ass kids.
I understand how many people interpret the story as a meaningless revenge story that doesn't close in a sensible way. For me, I felt the story worked well as a story of grief, love, trauma, and growing pains. The worst part of the story was the insane amount of off screen travel and the fact that Ellie's inner turmoil is almost entirely subtext (Abby's is too but not to the same degree). This worked great for a lot of people, but for a whole lot of other people, it's too subtle and makes the message and themes of the game confusing. So I think the game could have benefited from more dialogue from Ellie, let us hear what she's thinking and feeling instead of interpreting it through subtle acting and relying on player empathy.
Despite this, TLOU2 still worked for me and I was really emotionally affected by it. I totally understand why it's so divisive though. At the end of the day at least the game is fun to play.
Nta but no? Why would it be bad?
It's a video game, you're allowed to like whatever character you like.
I found Abby to be annoying but tbh I'm jelly of those arms kek
Nayrt but I felt the same anon. I really liked TLoU2 and I thought Abby surprisingly became a really good character by the end. Playing Ellie felt like playing Joel again at the end of the first game, I was going on but I didn't want to kill Abby, I just wanted her to be happy
. As another anon said, the characterization of the two of them is done very subtly but it resonated a lot with me too. I thought the ending was good, it made sense narratively and it mirrored the first game well, I thought the destructive nature of revenge was really well addressed.
I liked it. It's nothing amazing but it's definitely charming. I like character focused stories, 'coming of age' type things where there's a timeskip, the comparisons between the real world and dream world (though I felt sometimes like the dream segments had bad pacing). I really love MARI and HERO!I cried whilst going through the photo book that had MARI's pictures that AUBREY returned. She didn't deserve to die, and the rest didn't deserve to be led into believing it was a suicide, even though I know BASIL had his fucked up reasons.
If the team ever comes out with another game, I'll absolutely take a look at it.
I guess if you enjoy coming of age type stories this game probably ticks all the right boxes. Though I didn't expect the game to be so extremely american and I guess the disconnect prevented me from feeling genuinely invested in this game.Now I don't know about you but I thought the ending was absolute bullshit, even if it made sense in the overall "overcoming trauma and forgiving yourself" narrative. Sunny murdered his sister (even if you interpret it as an accident, he still put hands on her and killed her) and then with help from Basil, disguised the horrific murder as a suicide for four years. This destroyed all the lives of the people around him as you can see in the game. Revealing the truth to everyone just as they had built back their life would be just as horrifying and destroy their entire lives again in an even worse manner.
I felt like the game didn't tackle this implication or the weight of Sunny's actions at all. The "trust that your friends will forgive you" and "we will still love you even if you tell us the truth" messages really rubbed me the wrong way. Towards the end, the game curiously lacks empathy for everyone else despite portraying their grief and suffering very well when Mari died. That's why I think it's a game made for 14 year olds - it's exactly the kind of narrow focus with only yourself that teenagers typically have due to their stage in development. Of course to the self-inserters what matters most is if Sunny forgives himself or not. I don't understand what makes people think that what Basil did is as bad as what Sunny did. Basil was just a kid trying to help his low-key sociopathic best friend after witnessing him murder his sister. Sunny's the one that kept the violin in which his sister's head smashed open and the papers he used to mop up her blood inside a box for four years.
No hate if you like it, I'm just geniuenly trying to understand the other perspective. How did you feel about the ending?

I love Stella Glow on 3DS but I hate that it's so coomer. So many cute designs going to waste with their character development or endings. The gameplay was slow at the beginning but it's really fun as it opens up and the witches get access to special attacks (that come with battle themes.) If you like games like FF Tactics or Fire Emblem you might like it.
I was reminded of Stella Glow because of the new Triangle Strategy demo. I got roughly 5 hours out of the new prologue demo. There is tons of story, it's ok enough and you get to make some decisions along the way that feel impactful for now. Save data carries over so it's worth a shot if you like those types of games. I think the art style is really pretty too.

It doesn't seem to be a very long game and now that I'm more in the mood to play video games in general I think I should be able to beat this one quickly, maybe this weekend or during the next week. I'll alternate between that one and SMT5, which I also went back into recently.
As for the rest of my backlog, it's pic related. I just received my copy of AI Somnium Files yesterday, hopefully I'll enjoy it. I'm thinking about starting that one after AAI and then just playing games from the shortest to the longest ones. I have other games in a separate list because they don't appeal to me right now, what I posted is just what I'm actually interested in.

Real life happened but I finally got to it!
I find it insane how 4chan scrotes actually fell in love with Ame and missed the whole point of the game, the endings where they get cucked seemed to hurt them the most lolI personally have mixed feelings about the happy end and the true end. Why did she come back to the internet once everyone abandoned it? Seems like a mixed message. Same with the true ending, yes, she became independent (or just decided to replace the identity of the voice inside her head) but she was still an internet addict.

what a fucking joke I can't believe they have the nerve to sell an almost 20 year old game full price for a CLOUD version
nta, it's all online iirc, that means you need a good internet connection to be able to play these games. I always wanted to try KH but I guess that's not gonna happen because my internet connection at home isn't always very good. No idea what the fuck SE was thinking here.>>186106
I'm thinking about pirating old games that are hard to find for cheap, especially on the GBA or DS, at this stage I already completed my collection of physical copies of video games I wanted anyway, except for megaten games on the 3DS since Atlus fucking hates Europe.
Not sure which emulator is best for this game, but here's the patch thread with instructions: https://gbatemp.net/threads/ace-attorney-investigation-2-prosecutors-path-final-release.367451/
Apparently the download link is down so here's an archived version: https://web.archive.org/web/20180904052257/https://filetrip.net/nds-downloads/rom-hacks/download-aceattorneyinvestigationprosecutorpathbeatpatch-final-v2-f33067.html
My personal recommendation for which emulator to use would be: download DeSmuME or MelonDS, I don't know which of those is the best for this game (NO$GBA is outdated as fuck but idk). Or just RetroArch with a DS core.
For DS ROMs look up no-intro's collection on archive.org, and in "all files" download Gyakuten Kenji 2 (Japan), then follow the instructions to apply the patch.
The updated Windows build of Desmume has been blocked for a few weeks and the devs don't seem to have done anything about it:https://ci.appveyor.com/project/zeromus/desmume/build/artifacts
I can't find a mirror, so I uploaded the executable I had on my computer to mediafire: https://www.mediafire.com/file/n2bqu06aup6e3si/DeSmuME-VS2019-x64-Release.exe/file
For the linux and mac versions go here: http://desmume.org/download/
If it's running slowly, go to config-> emulation settings, uncheck 'enable advanced bus-level timing' and check 'use dynamic recomplier'. If you're still significantly below 60fps go to config->sound settings and select Dual SPU Synch/Asynch or the game's going to sound like a cat throwing up (you don't need to do this if you're running at normal speed though).

Dare I say, best VN of 2022?
Yes, yes I do.
