i hopped back onto Destiny 2 again this weekend after i took a month-long break and it feels like coming home, sappy as that is. :') the new season starts next week and i'm really looking forward to it! Bungie has been doing pretty well with the story the last handful of seasons, so i'm excited to see what they have planned this time around.

I'm playing dragon's dogma again and this is my character with one of the dragons of rotunda of dread glitching on one of those pillars after I killed it while it was flying. He fell off the pillar after I accidentally bumped onto him when I tried to jump back to my pawn to leave the place.

I'm looking forward to many games I won't be able to play anytime soon because no ps5, but especifically that harry potter game I hope it won't suck

from how i understand it, the only time sensitive stuff being cycled out for season 18 will be the season pass, seasonal challenges, and the seasonal artifact mods. anything regarding the current season's story should still be available, but like with season 16, it and its currencies will probably take a backseat to whatever new offerings are released for 18.

you have until next tuesday (aug 23rd, 1pm est) to get any of what you deem a priority done in the mean time. good luck, nonna!

Electronic Arts buys off Maxis, is greedy, marketing strategy is monopolistic rip-off. Its games become ever more shit and ever more expensive because they don't have to try.
A challenger appears! Paradox Interative outcompetes shitty overpriced EA easily. They flourish, they grow, they become big.

Anons, please play Cult of the Lamb. I'm amazed by how good it is. For those who aren't sure about getting it because it's a roguelike, I'll say that the game is worth the money based on the cult management sim part alone. The roguelike segments are honestly pretty secondary to your duties to the cult, and I find myself fulfilling cult followers' requests and performing rituals and sermons more frequently than I battle. It's like Binding of Isaac meets Animal Crossing. I play on normal difficulty and it's been relatively easy so long as I'm focused; there are other difficulties (easy, hard, and extra hard) that I haven't played either.

Will warn console players that there are a few softlocks to be cautious of in the early game. I play on PC and I haven't encountered any on my run, but it seems like those on Xbox and PS5 have had to restart a few times. Anyways, sorry for the sperg, play it!

Definitely exceeded my expectations based on the lukewarm response my moid friends had. Got it anyway, glad I did. My gf watches me play sometimes, my first follower was based on her and I unlocked the resurrection ritual so I can keep her forever. I even married her and we smooch irl when the game characters smooch… This game is as cute as it is edgy.


My problem with the roguelite segment has been that the more you advance the combat-related tree, the worse the options get because it opens up your weapon pool to things that may not suit your playstyle. I hate the slow weapons and a bunch of the curses but I have no way of "speccing" into any kinda build. Is there a build-focused feature later down the line? I cleared the first two dungeons and am on the last stage of the third one and if I get the super slow hammer I just wanna ragequit lol.

Download RetroArch, a multi-emulator program, then install a N64 core, I believe it's called Mupen64Plus. Configure the emulator's controls to your liking.
I would recommend Project64 which is the emulator I grew up and I'm most familiar with, but the devs have turned it into nagware now (the donation message you get every time you open it becomes more and more annoying each time) and I forgot which was the last decent version. Something like 1.7 I think.

Step 2 is finding the game. I recommend getting it from no-intro's N64 collection.
Also play the original MM, the 3DS version changed a lot of things for worse. In the last thread some people mentioned how one of the most fun parts of the original MM was Zora Link's swimming mechanic. There are other frustrating changes like Twinmold being near invincible when it shouldn't (iirc).

Here you go: https://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/Nintendo_64_emulators

IIRC the N64 emulators aren't the easiest to use. If you want a graphical interface, looks like m64p is your best bet. Reddit is cancerous but I'm sure if you searched for OoT emulation on Reddit you'd find some setups that work. You can also probably find a place to download the game itself if you don't have a copy on your computer. Also, avoid any website that claims to let you play the game directly in your browser. Have fun!

Minish Cap and Wind Waker, they are both so pretty and fun to play. I also loved Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. But honestly I couldn't even rank them. I love Zelda because I love puzzles. Breath of The Wild has puzzles but they are everywhere and too easy which makes them boring and annoying. The dungeons like the world felt giant but empty. When I finished the first dungeons I couldn't believe I just finished 1/ 4 of the game. I won't even speak about the final boss since he becomes ridiculously easy by finishing the dungeons. Just why?! The story and the lore were so bare too. Everything that could have been interesting happens in the cinematics. It felt like they finished the map and had Link running around and someone at nintendo decided it was good enough for an open world game. I was extremely confused when I saw the reviews and I really hope they try harder with the next one.

What's your favourite nonna?

No. 231879

nayrt and I loved BotW but I def have grievances about it with the things you said too. The dungeons in previous games were all themed so well and here it was just more of the same kind of puzzles with like zero theming, just giant shrines basically. I hope the bring back legitimate dungeons for 2. I greatly enjoyed the overworld though, I could explore it all day just because it’s fun to run or climb to new areas, but sometimes I wish there was more to do. I felt this in Elden Ring as well (not that they’re super comparable but since people were doing it anyway all over the internet). You’d get excited to explore an area that looks like it will lead to something only to be found with nothing, sometimes not even an item. I don’t understand the point of creating an area that looks like it will payoff only to give the player no reason to.

Anynonny play Cleo: A Pirate's Tale? It's this cute pixel adventure mystery that just came out, I loved playing it but have mixed feelings about it after I finished the game. It's entertaining and has great story beats but I disliked how our player character, a fourteen year old girl, gets blackout drunk on no fewer than three occasions during the latter half of the game. There's also the story's end where she goes back to work at her dad's bar and doesn't tell anyone about her adventure. Instead, she "learned to listen" and tells stories of all the moids who shaped her journey so that they can remain conscious in the afterlife. That one left a bad taste in my mouth and was enough to make me think this one of the few games that would have been better with a moid protagonist instead of a girl. But I still recommend the game if you want to kill an afternoon with some silly and obtuse puzzles and don't mind the unfortunate implications.

I liked Saints Row 1 & 2 when they first came out as I was heavily into sandbox games then but the third one ruined it.

Oh nonny. This has got to be a troll post ("extremely talented gamer"? Wtf).
But just in case you're serious, Pokemon Reborn is a fangame made on RPG Maker, and for PC. There are no "difficult" Pokemon games on the Switch, there hasn't been one in ages. Especially compared to fangames that are specifically created to be challenging. Maybe you could wait until the new game Scarlet/Violet comes out and buy it for him just so he can see for himself how shit it is. But if he's one of those super loyal Pokemon fans and not fed up with the quality of recent games (doesn't sound like it tho), he's going to love it.
I'd recommend getting him a game from a different franchise, one that's actually challenging. But be careful not to buy him a commonly recommended game that's actually a port of a game he has already played on another platform, like Dark Souls or Cuphead. Maybe some difficult Japanese RPG since your boyfriend seems to like JRPGs that are hard to progress through.

Thank you for the advice nonna! I should have just left the part about my bf/his skill level out completely as to not trigger everyone kek. How the fuck else do you convey skill level. Anyways I will probably just let him choose a game after I give him the Switch bc I can't find a straight answer and so many Pokemon games seem to differ. I don't wanna waste money on a game he may not be into. He hasn't played a Pokemon game since Gameboy (besides Reborn) and some of the newer ones are apparently still kinda for kids. I don't see how it being a PC game factors into this but thank you for your consideration nonnington.

Finished Jade Empire, I think it's the first time I ever played a RPG where you don't have equipment. Also one of the shortest, and certainly the most dynamic Bioware RPG (you can do rolls, jump behind the target and 1 click = 1 hit). Very original overall, 25 different fighting styles, fun side quests, fun companions (one never fights and just throws alcohol at you to make you drunk box), and there's even a top down shooter plane minigame between levels
Not a big fan however of the dog shit character customization (you have 6 models to choose from, you can't change clothes, that's it) and of the very unfortunate wardrobe choices for female characters that make you flash your panties whenever you roll

Aren't you supposed to take your time with side quests? I'm not interested in XB3 at all, but I remember that in XC1 most quests were just "gather this number of items" or "defeat this enemy from this area" and once you did that you automatically received exp and money so you would just do that without even trying. But I was also burned out from the side quests in XC2 (which I liked way more overall) because while they were way more interesting as a whole and there were less quests, they were way longer and you had to go to a bunch of areas and talk to the quest givers afterwards. I stopped doing the blade quests and just beat the last boss at some point and started the Torna DLC because of it.

Anyone play the Splatoon 3 demo? What team did you pick? What did you think of the new weapons, specials, and the new tricolor battle?

I played on Team Rock and alternated between the Aerospray and N-Zap. The new Reefslider special is fun and the Tacticooler is neat but a bit OP, especially if your other teammates have the same special. If you time it properly, you can stagger them and have instant respawn constantly. Initially, I didn't like the tricolor battle but the more I played it, the more I started to like it. I still prefer the regular mode over it though. I imagine that it's pretty annoying to be the defending team. I've seen so many Team Scissor players complain about it lol

No. 234294

I was also on team rock! I used the splatana (really fun, definitely maining it when the full game comes out) and splat dualies. I think the issue people have with the tricolour battles has less to do with the mode itself but rather the map they used for it this time around. The defending team is pretty much stuck in the middle the whole time with no real chances to ink the enemy sides of the map. Hopefully this will be resolved in future splatfests.

Also i love RPGs too much and need to feel a world filled with life and interactions, and most of these games feel very lonely to me. I could overcome that feeling though, i can enjoy platformers, hack and slash, and many other genres even though they are often devoid of "life" as well.

yeah, that's one of the best but also sometimes most frustrating aspect of the game. There is one complicated rule all across the game but you only see one specific cases at the time, and you have to figure it out zone after zone. It's like slowly learning the language of the island and everything including the environment is a puzzle! Do you remenber at what place you were stuck, if you want I could give you directions (without any spoiler) of some of the best zone to start the game? If you like puzzle game, it is really worth trying again imo, it's such a rich world!

I just bought a bunch of DLCs for 3DS games and downloaded patches because today is the last day when you can buy anything. I have Bravely Default and Second and want to try them soon, I started files and by default you get long cutscenes with some English dub, and I can only switch to Japanese voices afterwards. Isn't there a way to change that setting before starting a new file? Because that's really annoying, I don't want to hear the same 3 American voice actors in my JRPGs.

From the way it was explained in my language on the Nintendo website I thought you couldn't add funds either way starting from today but if you had codes to download specific DLCs or games you could still add them and download them. Maybe it's a mistranslation. By the way, I bought Pokemon Blue and Gold on the 3DS because my GBC is all fucked up thanks to my youngest sister fucking it up when she was still young, and I think the internal battery of my Crystal cartridge needs to be replaced because it can't save progress anymore. Would that be stupid if I also bought Yellow and Crystal? I had all the versions for gen 1 and 2 at the time because they were dirt cheap if bought second hand when I was a kid so if I can still add funds I still have time to do it. What do you think? I got Gold because my baby daughter, pic related, isn't in Crystal.

If you can tolerate PlayStation 1 graphics, you might want to start with Silent Hill 1 because it's story is directly connected to 3.

They really don't understand teamwork, subhumans pieces of shit.

I so wish there was an easy way to find other women, a filter or something. I'd love it so much but as of year 2022 i think troons would find a way to ruin this as well. I'd go back to FF14 if i could filter men out when doing a donjon or a particular quest.

I've got a terrible habit of writing a novel in my head about who my character is and their motivations, beliefs, etc and then I remember there's a game world I've got to fit them into, lol.

I played Ooblets a bunch when it first came out, and stopped playing around the Port Forward update. It's cute and I liked it but there's definitely some downsides when I played

>Frustrating early quests like growing crops for someone that take 7+ days to grow, and you can't raise friendship with that townie until it's done

I did the same thing but I took an even longer break than you did (I dropped D2 before Witch Queen launched by a few weeks) the monetization of the game and the time repetitive nature of the game drove me away.
I used the free week to my advantage and absolutely fell in love with the game again, I wish I snagged a copy from my friend earlier but I was on the fence about about it. The Witch Queen campaign was so good and FINALLY bungie made the game difficult without the use of champions! Last time they did that was when you could replay some red war campaign quests. It goes without saying that the story was also so satisfying I hope the Witness doesn't become the new "it was Savathun all along" or another redemption arc, I'm aware that the witness have existed in destiny's concept art since the beginning.
I wonder what they're going to do after Lightfall, hard to imagine this game going on without the big bad hive gods/goddesses and the witness.
>>231088
FFXIV filled the void in my heart that D2 left but something about it just couldn't replace it, the gameplay/mechanics felt so boring. I reached Heavensward and I'm on the fence about buying the game + subscription shitty conversion rates is making me regret waiting on the game also something about how not paying the subscription means I lose access to my account rubs me the wrong way.
I feel like I've been really bad at staying away from spoilers since certain characters deaths were spoiled to me but oh well.

What the hell I was expecting it to be the worst RPG ever but it was good! I mean it would have been great without EA fucking around and making Bioware do a game in 1 year when they did the previous one in 7 years, but the gameplay was much better than in DA:O and when it got released it probably had the best companion interactions in a WRPG
Also I believe there's some material that came from Neverwinter Nights expansions: Varric is a male version of Dorna Trapspringer from Shadows of Undrentide, Aveline looks like Aribeth and the parts where your companions can betray you feel the same as the ending of Hordes of the Underdark (both written by David Gaider)

To this nonna, I'm the anon you replied to and I now know exactly what you meant. The boss fights aren't even really difficult for me, and I'm no seasoned gamer. I think in order for it to be more challenging you have to buy the Master Mode DLC, which admittedly really sucks because that is extra $$. Like I said before I've never played Zelda before BOTW but I am assuming it was/can be more difficult in the past. Maybe the sequel coming out in 2023 will be harder. Rip

I just saw the new Fire Emblem trailer without sound on and I never, ever, EVER want to hear anyone complaining about Awakening and Fates being "too anime" again. EVER. I also hope the people shitting on f!Byleth's design will boycott that one because at least Byleth doesn't have toothpaste duochrome hair color.

Kozaki said during this year's Japan Expo in Paris that he was super busy with a shit ton of projects he can't talk about because of NDAs, and I'm guessing that's also the case for more competent artists. Kurahana may or may not be an expensive freelance artist on top of that according to some tumblr I found randomly years ago in a post about utapri. Not sure how accurate this is but that would explain why the thoroughly incompetent art director did all the in-game portraits in 3H and why someone else made the in-game illustrations.

I recently got my hands on A:MR through the EA game pass and I finally feel like a fucking gamer KEK I've been a major fan of the game series for a long time, having played the original game very early on in my life and then having the game files saved on my PC, so when I needed an icon for something, I'd just go into the game folder and grab whichever picture of item/thing fit. I've also started from the beginning with the Fleshmaiden (picrel) skin because it's my all-time most favorite outfit in any video game I've ever seen, like, fucking look at it! It's AWESOME! It's CRAZY! It's a girl having a GOOD time with her EYE on a chest!
The only thing that weirds me out is knowing that the creator of these games is a male. And the games are about a mentally ill, constantly suffering, young woman (iirc she's 18 in A:MR) and the pain she's being subjected to, yet she never fully escapes it. It all feels like glamorized suffering of a quirky, witty dream goth girl who someone would love to fix. Thank God most of the fanbase I've encountered is women who relate to her, but I've also seen 3D model edits and fan art of Alice clearly made for nonces…

There are a shit ton of artists who could draw for FE games if we're just talking about skills, but the devs only hire freelance artists for that. So there are several issues such as whether the artists even want to draw for this kind of big projects with dozens and dozens of characters to designs, portraits to draw, complicated armors, etc., whether they would have enough time for that compared to their other projects/contracts, how much the devs are willing to pay for their skills and work, and on the other side, the devs will probably want to hire someone who already has an established fanbase to advertise the new game to. Which is the case for the new character designer who is an ok illustrator, a piss poor character designer, and somewhat enough of a newbie to not be too expensive compared to Chinatsu Kurahana for example, and that artist has a shit ton of followers on twitter.

As I said, Kozaki is very busy for projects he can't even talk about, and Kurahana was suspected of working on a BL game that's not released yet under a pen name, and was replaced by someone else for the in-game art specifically after catching covid but besides that we don't really kno, what she's up to. There are some very good artists who are regularly doing art for FE Heroes for pre existing characters but we don't know if they could potentially all be good for designing new characters with complicated armors and medieval/renaissance like clothes. And given who made the art for the OOC donut steel for book 2 and 4 in FE Heroes it's not the first time they hire retarded designers anyway.

Well technically buying a game really is buying a license to use the software privately, which you still very much can do, except that the official servers you were able reach by using the software won't be able to be reached (private servers would still be an option)
Now refunding games when official servers shut down is absolutely not in the economic interest of game developers, since that would mean refunding would have to happen every time servers are shut down for a multiplayer game. For instance, it'd mean that Gearbox would have to refund the price of Battleborn to every player who bought it, which could completely bankrupt a developer as shutting down servers usually happens when a game isn't commercially successful. Multiplayer games being generally a risky venture, if this kind of mass refund was possible only the biggest game studios would ever dare create multiplayer games, or they would never do official servers. Those two options are neither convenient for the developers nor the players, which is why no refund is the current way to deal with the situation
Furthermore in the OW1 case, skins are transferred for free to OW2 and there's no additional charge for OW1 players to play OW2 (it's f2p), so players can't argue that they were robbed of them. Gameplay changes aren't enough for a refund. And if you still decided to sue Activision, well, you'd be suing a multibillion dollars company for… not being able to play OW1 while being fully able to play OW2? That's not going to get enough traction to create a serious class action lawsuit, and since Activision is based in California no judge is going to be foolish enough to pronounce a sentence that could stir shit in the silicon valley

I'd say start with the remake of Resident Evil 1. It gives you plenty of Ammo and healing items on the easier difficulties, it's less action focused than the later games, and it has fantastic atmosphere. It has fixed camera angles but you'll soon get used to it.
If you do try it, you might want to play as Jill instead of Chris because she has more inventory space(which is very precious in this game).

Posting again because we finally have the full theme song for Bayonetta 3. I wonder who the lyrics are about? It's either about Bayonetta and Luka because she won't stop calling him Cheshire to fuck with him maybe they'll become a couple? about Viola and her demon Cheshire, or about Viola and Luka because they seem somewhat related. As for the last option I'm 100% sure Luka is Viola's father at the very least, there's even some sort of physical resemblance, he had freckles just like hers as a kid and yes I did play The Wonderful 101 DON'T play it, it's garbage, and Luka's mother from TW101 is also blonde iirc. So Viola doesn't just have the same fashion sense and mannerism as him. Don't even tell me the Luka in TW101 isn't the same one as in Bayonetta, his mother's full name is Margarita Redgrave.

I truly don't have a preference, I like both pairings equally. It does seem like Luka will be way more relevant now than in Bayonetta 2 so expect him to have some big role related to either Bayo or Viola at least.

The annoying thing about Rockstar is that they're absolutely capable of being the single greatest videogame company but they just won't do it. Look at RDR2 for example, that is probably one of the best open world games ever. The attention to detail is phenomenal and the story, characters, graphics, and fantastic. Imagine what Rockstar could do if they weren't channeling all their resources into using GTAV to suck up money. They're ruining their own rep, even their fans are calling them a scam company on Twitter kek

i just feel sorry for the developers who are apparently upset about it. take two/rockstar though can get fucked. they definitely have been beating a dead horse for too long and the “definitive” edition they released for iii/san andreas/vice city was piss poor and clearly a quick cash grab banking on nostalgia.

you’re absolutely right. i played gta 4 recently and i really liked some of the stuff implemented into it that seemed to show back then they cared about immersion and attention to detail that gta v/online didn’t have, but rdr2 had some neat little details like hair growth (i don’t remember what else because it’s been a while since i played). if gta vi had a mix of the things that made these three games great then it would be fantastic. too bad the company has gone to shit already.

I got xenoblade chronicles 3 recently. Haven't played the other ones, and I usually love jrpgs, but this game reeeeeeally isn't doing it for me. Tbh I think it sucks. The world exploration and robot designs are the best part by far, but everything else is really boring. I just unlocked the second forms of the interlinks, so maybe I'm just too early into the game?

You are pretty early into the game, I'd say at least give it a go just for the main story? If you don't like the rest of the content I think the main story is pretty good, my favourite parts are exploring the world and sidequesting though. Unfortunately you are in tutorial daycare for the first ~15hrs, after that it gets much better I think.

Anyone has played 999 on the ds ? I have mixed feeling about it. I absolutely loved some aspect of the story but the plot holes and the very convoluted story was also annoying at times. I think it's still worth the time and effort because some of the gameplay ideas were genuinely fun and original imo. I'm debating if I should play the second game from the series. Did anyone try it ?

kek I know exactly your pain nonnie, I was defending the witness with my life up thread but godamn the music zone was hell to me.

I really enjoyed the sequel but it does have the same problems you've described about the first one. The time travel stuff gets much more focus than it did in the first game, which may be a good or bad thing for you.
It also has the kind of plot twists that seem clever at first but make less and less sense the more you think about them.

Having said that I still had a lot of fun playing it, and if you liked the first game you'll probably enjoy it too. Just be prepared for some somewhat bullshit explanations at the end.

I played 999 on the Vita, so with the jp voice acting and with the flowchart, but the very last puzzle is apparently different from the original one because of the lack of dual screens. I loved it, I live convulted shit where everything makes sense once you get all the endings but I heard that the third game of the series is complete trash and retroactively shits on the story and characters of the first two games so I didn't even dare play the second one despite also having it on the Vita. I'm not sure I'll keep my Vita so I got a copy of the DS game just in case I want to replay it because I loved it that much. I also liked AI the somnium files from the same director/writer and I'm going to order a copy of AI nirvana initiative.

Fair warning if you plan to play the second game, the 3DS port is incredibly buggy to the point where on one puzzle stage I had to rotate the room very slowly or it would freeze. Save frequently.

I recommended BOTW to a friend who had no interest in the Zelda series previously, and sold it to her as a "do whatever you want" game and she loves it kek. It's her first Zelda game and she was hesitant to play it without playing the others, but now she wants to play the other games! It's the same for some other friends and even myself. I love it because there's no wrong way to play the game. You can play it "normally" i.e. just fighting everything and progressing like normal, or you can be a terrible anxiety ridden fake gamer girl like me and turn the whole game into one big stealth mission and avoid fighting everything possible. I have a lot of fun exploring in the game. It might be why I haven't enjoyed the other Zelda games like WW and OoT- because I can't get out of the fights kek.

I really enjoy VNs for the amount of niche and interesting finds but the fucking cesspool (which is 65-75% of VNs) you need to go through like the top comment in the pic suggests, you have go through coomer pandering bullshit it leaves me sick to me stomach, I even saw one relating to snuff.

(Was looking for a keygen for cyanotype daydream just in case it was coomer shit but it doesn’t seem likely)

it’s extremely pretty and concept is interesting and the only people I’ve seen dislike it is because it censored the unnecessary nudity and moved the character ages up so they’re no longer high schoolers.

Clannad isn't coomery (in opposite to the Tomoyo After spin-off), but it's cheap moeblob drama. Personally wouldn't recommend unless you like sappy, unrealistic bullshit. It's also super long, so you cannot consume it quickly like VN junk food.

I’ve played it on the Xbox and really enjoyed it. There’s not a whole lot of guidance/pressure to follow quest lines beyond the initial starting tutorial and I liked just being able to explore the universe and take in the atmosphere of each planet. It took a while for me to get out of the mindset of needing the game to tell me specific objectives, but once I got over that it was kinda nice to just wander around and pick and choose what I wanted to do.

stupid question can you buy and play a game not in your "preferred steam language" I don't care I won't be able to read it without translation, I just want it to run on my computer
The game in question is Stardom 2, which is in chinese. It looks to be like a princess maker styled game about become a rising star alongside having some otome/dating sim gameplay #I found it in the otome category#. I think the artstyle looks so cute and nostalgic which makes sense since it's an older game. My plan is to have my phone/tablet with google translate up since it shouldn't have fast text. I've attached images of the translation, it's not perfect but it's tolerable
>ignore all the UI on the translation side it just looks like that because I hit take a picture due to wanting the photo to be steady enough

Watched Jerma play it and immediately loved it as much as PM2 probably even more.

I'm a bit disappointed in SMT5 because of the level scaling absolutely fucking up the fact that in other games you can be underleveled and murder everything in your path if you adopt the right strategies, and the fact that you can't save everywhere like in SMT4 and 4A isn't very convenient but I don't entirely dislike it either. It's just that I play it in small doses and slowly when I usually play JRPGs fast if I love them no matter how long they are. Bravely Default reminds me a lot of retro FF games so I know I'll love it but I never had enough time to play it and it's frustrating. I'll focus on SMT5 then, beat the game once, and try the NG+ after playing more games.

I've seen this taken out of context multiple times now. What they will do is take a recording of voice chat, transcribe it into text (via software not human), and immediately delete the recording. The text gets checked over for any gamer words and then is deleted within 30 days. Not 100% sure but I think this only happens if the player was reported for abuse in voice chat.

Go with bravely default, I hated smt 5. Smt turned into generic brand fgo when kaneko left. Terrible plot and butt ugly new demons for the most part. One of the other main demon designers is an autist about tokusatsu/power ranger trash and commissioned demon designs from tons of crusty old tokusatsu artists for smt4 and now 5 has even more of that hideous tokusatsu influence.

You're talking about Doi? I think Kaneko is retiring slowly but surely. I think the tokusatsu shit is only really noticeable in SMT5 with the MC but since it's the MC it's impossible to avoid it. At least he has pretty hair… I'll try to beat the game anyway because I'm halfway through the game, hopefully it'll get better.

>I think Kaneko is retiring slowly but surely

He's kinda been retired. He hasn't had anything to do with the smt series starting with smt4. 4 was alright, I loved the demon collecting and fusion but the other aspects of it didn't do anything for me.

iirc Kaneko worked on SMT4 a lot in the shadows especially on the story, characters, setting, lore, etc. but didn't work on SMT4A, so I'm never too sure what's going on with him. And I thought you were talking about Doi and not Yamai because of the guest artists in SMT4 working in tokusatsu most of the time, but I'm not sure who took the decision to invite them. Eh, at least Medusa looked really cool in SMT4A I guess. I think the biggest appeal in Megaten is that most of it is urban fantasy involving normies being fucked over by fantastical characters and elements so I don't want it to verge on dumb shit like Power Rangers that make the humans less relatable or whatever the fuck.

Yamai took that decision. I know for sure kaneko did no art or writing specifically for 4, but I don't remember how much he had to do with anything else. It didn't feel like much of note either way, especially regarding the characters. Agree with you on the no power rangers point, the human characters have already gotten less relatable with every game as it is. Heard soul hackers 2 was terrible about that, and that it flopped super hard. Didn't even make enough noise for the designs to make it to the bad character design thread, hmph.

Good, that's what they get for trying to replace cool designs like Nemissa and Hitomi's with that abomination called Ringo. Deserved. They even managed to fuck up Viktor from what I've seen in the first trailer, an already established character.

>I know for sure kaneko did no art or writing specifically for 4

He participated in the writing but didn't design anything new. But even then it was indirect. I think it's info from a guidebook or artbook that was recently translated. In that interview it was also explained that the story was going to be way longer and an entire chapter would have been some sort of "flashback" where you play as the previous incarnation of Flynn, with Kiyoharu, Akira and Kenji being very important. They reused a bunch of backstory in SMT4A instead. I don't remember the source but I'll look for it once I'm done with work.

The main issue with most King's Quest games is that they're nearly impossible to get through without hints or a guide. They have "Dead End" puzzles, where you'll be unable to continue because you didn't pick up an item you needed earlier in the game, forcing you to reload an earlier save.

If you want one that's more modern in design, I would recommend King's quest 6. It's considered the best in the series and it's much more forgiving than the other ones. There's also fan remakes of 1-3, but I'm not sure if those count as true King's Quest games.

I liked Pokemon XY and Sun/Moon, but I don't recommend USUM if you already have SM or plan on getting SM soon. They're too similar, don't make my mistake and think that USUM is a sequel like BW and BW2. And when it comes to SMT go get SMT4 and 4 Apocalypse at least they're great games. There are some spinoffs as well like Persona Q, Devil Survivor 1 and 2, Soul Hackers, etc. FE Awakening and Fates are good games, but I hated FE Echoes and still feel scammed despite buying it for just 20€ and selling it later. At the very least for Fates, get the base game version Conquest and Birthright. Revelation is the third route, it's not the best version and feels like a better ending at first but the writing is half assed. However you'll get all the playable characters in one route so that's cool, especially for multiplayer shit. There are some Zelda games including N64 remakes but I haven't played them yet, same for Bravely Default.

And still for Pokemon, download the Pokebank and Poketransfer apps/games. You will be able to use them for free to transfer pokemon from previous games once the eshop will be dead. And go get FE Fates NOW if you want to download DLCs and routes because the way the game works is stupid: you can download the routes only after you've finished the tutorial (first 6 chapters iirc) and the games will be removes from the eshop before everything else because of that. I have physical copies of Birthright and Conquest and got the DLCs later so I found this info by chance, be careful about that.

I finally went back to SMT5 after more than a month of not touching it because of how busy I was. I was annoyed by the boss fight against Yakumo that I expected to die every five seconds again since that's when I stopped playing to go on holidays somewhere. But I actually beat a few more bosses and mini-bosses way more easily on normal mode, cleared the Chiyoda ward, and now I can start a new dungeon/area. I'll try to go through the whole new area tomorrow and move on so I can beat the game before I receive my copy of P5R on the switch. I'd say so far the most bullshit bosses in that game are Nuwa, the last fight against Lahmu and Yakumo, who's supposed to be a normal fucking human being.

I won't be buying it now. I don't see why she'd lie. I'm sure Nintendo just wanted to replace her for Jennifer Hale and offered her nothing on purpose so she'd turn the game down.

And Bayonetta 3 director tweeting this, definitely in response, even though he did not address it directly. People are so underpaid in vidya industry I believe her and really hope boycott works. She brought the character to life and is offered 4k now, it's unbelieveable; glad there's more light shed on it instead just being left as "scheduling conflict" as it was said earlier

No. 247753

>>247716
Bayonetta was the only character she ever voiced, which means this is more a side job to her than her career. The producers gave her an at most B list VA pay because they knew that this was going to be the only job offer she was going to get this decade, and that they didn't have to bid for her against other game studios (like with Jennifer Hale). She probably overestimated her importance and tried to get paid more than for the previous games, they refused and decided to hire someone else

Admittedly I'm a couple of years late to the party but I've finally played Detroit become human and it's such an incredible game. Some of the writing choices in the other routes were cringe-worthy but conner's was the best, no wonder he's such a fan favorite I get it now

My first experience with Detroit Become Human was watching Two Best Friends Play when it first dropped. They fucked up Connor's route when they played twice.
First time around they never got Hank's son's name, so during the fake vs real Connor sequence Hank shot the real Connor.
Second time around they gave less of a fuck and went android Connor route, leading to Hank's suicide, which was tragic…

I finally played on my own this past year and got the good ending. I teared up at the end when Connor and Hank hug. I honestly hate when people ship them. What they have is a pure, father son bond in my eyes, especially after you learn about Hank's backstory. I try to push what Tumblr Aiden's have done to the game out of my mind and just focus on that kek.
Glad you enjoyed it nonnie!

I wouldn't be surprised, she's a minor part of the game's development and from what I get American voice actors think they should be paid more for reprising roles each time? Like David Hayter being replaced in MGS5 because he asked for more money than a literal Hollywood actor. I won't lose sleep from Bayonetta having a new voice actress but I wish she stayed just for the sake of consistency. Yusuke Hashimoto leaving Platinum Games is way bigger news since he produced the first game, directed the second one (which is less good btw but that's another topic) and he designed the demons and angels from both games, and when that was announced people were way less outraged or curious about it.

No. 247851

Honestly if the entire game was just Hank and Connor solving crimes involving deviants with Connor eventually turning deviant himself I would be so happy. Their dynamic and every scene with them was amazing.

Reminds me of this fan edit where Connor turns deviant because he doesn't want to hurt or kill Hank. Might be a bit cringy, but I'd definitely have a moment like this be one of the storylines in my Hank/Connor only version, kek

You guys have to be kidding me with "she overestimated her importance", she was the main character of this franchise for years, and there's no way Jennifer Hale being the biggest name in american VA industry has a pay this low.

If she got fired for asking more than $4000 she objectively and unambiguously overestimated her importance. Was anyone not going to buy Bayonetta 3 because she wasn't the main VA anymore? That's why she decided to go public with the news and ask for a boycott: because she realized that if she didn't do it herself nobody would care that much about her absence. I heavily doubt it'll have any effect

Sure but what does that mean? Recording lines for a few days for Bayonetta 1, then for a few days for the second game, then maybe for an afternoon for Smash, and… that's it. For a niche video game series that was barely saved by Nintendo's funding the second game. So notoriety isn't a criteria here at all. I can't find the video but she did state that recording her lines for one of the game took 4 days. Or 4 afternoons. I'd get the equivalent of 4000$ in my first world country by working in my currently qualified job for 3 months full time, so I don't think I can bring myself to feel totally sorry about the low offer. It's business as usual, she's not an employee and she could have tried to negotiate and see if they could offer a bit more than that if necessary. I wouldn't be surprised if the whole thing was an excuse to indirectly kick her out of the project, in that case that's scummy, especially because there are more Bayonettas talking to each other in cutscenes in that new game. but I've dealt with so much worse than that in my own career that I can't bring myself to be outraged, she won't sleep under a bridge for this, she'll live.

>As far as we know Yusuke Hashimoto left on his own accord

We don't know at all. He's a Japanese guy in a Japanese company so don't expect to ever know. But I brought him up because he's responsible for a lot of the visual choices and most of the enemies in the games which is way more important than voice acting in a short game that has a few cutscenes as a pretext to make you fight enemies. The change is already VERY obvious in the very first trailer of the game, meanwhile I didn't notice the VA changed until someone told me.

No. 247862

There's over 3h of cutscenes in Bayonetta 2 and even more lines outside of cutscenes, you really think recording that is few days of work? Of course it's a complete ignorant defending $4k pay.

Bayonetta 3 has multiple Bayonettas, there's no way voicing multiple characters wasn't going to take more time to record than a singular character in 2.

But he wasn't straight up suspended.

>>247888
I don't disagree with you because I also mentoned it earlier but
>a singular character in 2
She voiced both Bayonetta and Rosa in the second game and gave Rosa a deeper voice, but Rosa obviously has less lines than Bayo. I'm expecting each of the alternate Bayos to have just a few lines and for the main one to have way more screen time in a similar way.

>Platinum wanted to be cheap or Kamiya is a two faced snake who lied to her face about liking her, it's obvious.

We'll never know because that's internal info but I wish we did. I don't remember Kamiya's role in the development of the game, he's not the director or the producer this time but I think he still has an important role. It also depends on who takes care of budgeting everything, and Nintendo funds the game so for all we know they're maybe partly responsible for this too.

Man, all this talk of D:BH has got me tempted to buy it. I used to be a big Quantic Dream fan after playing Fahrenheit (or Indigo Prophecy if you're in the US) on the PS2 and being blown away by the branching narratives. I pre-ordered Heavy Rain on the PS3 and played the shit out of it, even got the platinum trophy for it. Then the one with Ellen Page was announced and it just… didn't interest me. Idk why, I guess I grew tired of that pretentious faggot David Cage and realised there's much better story driven games out there. Fahrenheit and Heavy Rain still hold a place in my heart, and I got them both on PS4 for nostalgias sake, but I rarely touch them so I passed on D:BH (and the fandom full of Aiden's put me off a bit too kek).

My only complaints about Detroit: Become Human, aside from them going very heavy on the themes sometimes, is that once again the female character had to take on the mother role for perhaps the most bland kid character ever written. We've got more games focused on fathers as well (God of War, Last of Us) but the kids in those are also fun and endearing. Plus in those games the father figure goes through a struggle phase of whether they want to be a parent or not. Kara is just right away written as doting mother or a heartless asshole if you decide not to care for the child.

After recently playing DBH I deep dove onto the wiki and learned that the game was supposed to be even longer. They apparently axed a 4th character's story arc and then split her character into like two other characters you'll see in the game, and barely gave her any airtime or relevance. Check it out after you play. I was reading that the people who worked on the game said it was the best route in the story. I hate reading things that get cut because it makes me so sad they'll never come to light.

It makes sense to me. Bayonoetta is the main character of a niche franchise, people calling her iconic are either normies who heard about her thanks to Smash or are very into video games. Said franchise flopped nearly twice and that's why Nintendo's funding the two sequels. On top of that in Bayonetta 3 she's not even the only main character, there's also Viola who's playable and the new game will be most likely be as short as the past ones so that means what, 3 to 4 hours of cutscenes except she won't even appear in all of them this time. She's not like a hollywood actor either, she's absolutely not the selling poiint of these games, it's the gameplay and the characters' lines themselves. She's not doing mocap, she's not being scanned to make Bayo look like her so that also means less work. Some anons talked about the main actor from Detroit become human shit talking Kamiya but didn't this guy do mocap and had his face and body scanned for the role?

Bayonetta 1 can boil down to being a game about female revenge. It's the story of a woman finding out who she is and deciding to kill her father because he led the genocide of her clan and betrayed her mother. All through the game she can put her enemies (who were all males in the past, even the female-looking ones, because they are born from the souls of dead priests) through the same tortures witches were put through history. The story and symbols are also laced with esoteric meanings. For example, her first outfit is full of symbols tied to the moon and womanhood.
It's still a game laced with fanservice because it always shows how sexy and provocative she is, and it has some uncomfortable and sometimes tasteless sexual humor (Joy torture, losing to Rodin).

The sequel softens this revenge angle by making her father a tragic hero who gets possessed by the androgynous god of chaos. It's honestly a worse game but still an enjoyable story and I am glad her dad was actually not an asshole.

lmfao I knew it had to be a troon from the very first frame we see it. an overly manly looking "woman" in a circle of new age crystal karens crying about their moon, then it opened its mouth and you hear that obnoxious tryhard "feminine" hrt voice. they didn't even have to shoehorn that "transition" line in, it was so obvious. it honestly makes me kek the only twans representation is the most stereotypical you can get.

remember when the queers applauded respawn for characters like gibraltar and bloodhound for being lgbt without being walking stereotypes and having it be their entire personality? rip to that

Bayonetta was also designed by a woman. It's true that there's quite a bit of male gaze elements in the game, her design and relationships with women in her life (Rosa, Jeanne) are the more important things to me.

I've always thought the coomer game accusations were overblown, before playing it I thought there would be constant tits and ass shots and sexual innuendos on every cutscenes but it's very mild actually, it's a fun action game first and foremost. Maybe it's because I generally have a high tolerance to fanservice shit, but Bayonetta is far from being the most distasteful media I've seen.

>It's honestly a worse game
I agree, not because of the story but because of how you HAVE to rely on witch time and umbran climax to do damage. It's fun on a first run but Bayonetta 1 is way more fun when you replay it.

No. 248629

>>248620
It's ok for me because Bayonetta and Jeanne are fashion icons and Mari made sure that Luka looks cute and fuckable in the first game, that's all that matters to me. His face looks a bit weird in the trailers of the 3rd game but he looks important now so I'm looking forward to it.

honestly, bayo isnt even a coomer design. at least in 1. her outfit is skintight and shows her back, sure, but a lot of normal outfits do that? her boobs aren't bursting out, they're not unrealistically huge, and she's also not wearing an infantilizing outfit like so many japanese men like to sexualize. i guess some people are also mad about the heels but i think they're cool and funny

No. 248646

>>248633
The reason why her back is visible is because she's dressed in black so seeing some of her skin makes her model way easier to see on screen, especially in the middle of battles. that's also why her hair is tied in the first game (except during boss fights) and short in the second one, it's mostly just because of practical reasons and because Mari Shimazaki found it fashionable and not because of the devs being coomers.

I told my friend that he looks like he is made from plastelinę, but greasy is the word I've been looking for, thank you. 100% agree with you about Cihi kek. The characters should look like in the cutscenes in original SH2, not whatever the fuck bloober made us look at. This is as wrong as the new voiceovers in the HD collection.
BTW, I hated the voice acting too. Like the monologue from before the Double Pyramid Head boss fight. So bland and emotionless! The original voices were great because they sounded like everyone was sleepwalking, which is exactly what was happening. Also there is no SH2 without Angela's iconic "LoOoOoOost?" line.

Some games just don’t need to be ultra high graphics, a lot of creativity is heightened when you need to present atmosphere through simpler art style. I’d rather have the original than they just copy and make everything look as realistic as possible. I live in real life so I know what it looks like, give me some fucking style. It’s like the last of us being rereleased 3 times. I’m always skeptical of remakes when the original silent hill 2 still holds up so well and is iconic.

Anons, which should I do: buy a new videocard for my PC, buy a Switch or buy a PS4?
I don't play games as often as I used to but would love to be able to play new games every now and then, new titles as well as old favorites and don't know which to pick. I love the Fatal Frame series, the older Final Fantasy titles, the Silent Hills and action RPGs like Bioshock, Dishonored and the Elder Scroll games. Also played Cyberpunk. Don't really care much for farming simulators or games that have an overly anime style to them (although also interested in the Shin Megami Tensei games). Would be verry eager to play Bloodborne. I also enjoy chill point and click adventure games like Syberia and looking forward to the new Wolf Among Us. Not sure which option would be best for me - upgrading the PC would be the most convenient, I guess, because that's how I played stuff mostly. If something I was interested in came out on console, I emulated it (this was on a gaming laptop that I recently sold). Bloodborne I'd be able to play through a streaming service with a subscription I think? The PS4 I'm considering because the last console I owned was a PS2 and most of the games I like and liked came out on the PS. The Switch I recently tried in a game bar with my bf and had a lot of fun playing Super Smash Bros and also like the portability aspect of it. I'm a Eurofag so the three would be around the same price, the videocard I'm eyeing is an RTX 3060

I think since you already have PC it would be the smartest to just upgrade it, you have the biggest choice of games on PC anyway. Switch library is actually pretty limited and maybe it's just me, but imho the majority of Switch games that are "worth it" are best played on big screen, so the mobile aspect of it is completely lost.
A lot of people sell used PS4 given PS5 is out for a while now so that actually would be the best option for you money wise, if that's something that matters to you.

this is a sad fact of modern video game voice acting; it's too good. back in the era of sh2 it was rare for any game company to have a recording studio, so voice actors would be selected and then just mailed their scripts. its part of the reason conversations often sound so stilted and unnatural in games of this time. it would be cool if they tried to emulate that again but idiots would complain about the "bad voice acting" since that shit is so prestigious now.

Ok not used spoiler before so hopefully this works (spoilered for silent hill 2 ending)
so I havent got all the endings but the first ending I got was the one where he says to Maria when shes coughing "we need to take care of that cough" in a kinda sinister, threatening way.

Anyway had a discussion with a friend about Leon and James and said I preferred Leon because hes not a creepy murderer like James and friend was like "but you dont understand he needed to end his wifes suffering hes actually a good guy and really remorseful" and I was like "nah" and mentioned the ending I got and he said that I misheard/was putting my own interpretation on it and I was like no, it was meant to come across like that. One thing I remember (it was a long time since I played this game) was that while not all the voice actors were great I thought James was very good.


There was more to the convo but that was the main point. Also TY nonna nice to find someone interested in talking about this, I like silent hill 2 as an experience, gameplay wise I personally dont think its that great so im glad the characters are interesting even if I overall dont like them.

Can you or anyone else explain why Higurashi and Umineko are so good? I tried reading summaries after hearing people freak out about this writer and all of it sounds like standard goofy VN fare. Why is it so highly reviewed as being super fucked up and well written?

I've only played Higurashi, it is very well written imho, fantastic pacing and tension build-up, the way the mystery of the village slowly unravels is really fascinating; for this reason it's my favorite horror VN. But unfortunately sometimes it takes forever to reach the horror parts, which is great for the pacing but sometimes really tiring; it's not the case for every part of the game but sometimes it kinda goes into lolicon-ish territories which ofc it's hard to swallow if you're not a degenerate.

Reading Umineko and participating in the explosing speculation threads that appeared everywhere after every part was one of the most enjoyable media related things I have ever experienced so I am in for this.
>>249315
Taste plays a role so be aware of that but Umineko in particular had one of the best OSTs of any anime/game IMO which made the already creepy atmosphere even better. The lack of pics helped too, a lot of the game is just edited dark photos of that old mansion with some silent hill tier BGM which made it work as horror imo. And when the red text part starts it's just a joy. Imagine reading arguments for hours but being excited regardless. The endless little hints it gave us made the guessing game enjoyable and everytime you have a theory a new hint is given that brings a twist that gives all of what you know a whole new meaning.

It's hard to explain. It it's unadaptable too. Half of the VN are just hours long debates about whodunnit and the possible existence of magic and the other half is looming horror without much happening and almost nothing you actually see (and if you see a thing it's usually not even what actually happens, the unreliable narrator is strong in this one). An anime adaption would just be 5 episodes of talking or someone walking through dark rooms and pondering their existence.

Higurashi is fun because there's an element in it that is a huge spoiler and very original, that I don't think has been done anywhere else and certainly not in western media
Umineko is in fact a VN about murder mysteries and how to solve them, so every time you read a murder novel afterwards you will think about Umineko

Mind however that the original versions of both VN were very ugly, and that Umineko loses some of its charm if you don't try to solve the mysteries (you're supposed to take notes, and some of the mysteries aren't explained at all). I myself was a bit disappointed by Umineko because my friends told me it was the BEST thing EVER WRITTEN, and I understood later that a lot of their enthusiasm came from the fact that they simply hadn't read much enjoyable books before, so I found it good and a bit too long but not perfect

You don't need to be a man to find James sympathetic or relatable, all you need is to be a caretaker for life for one of your loved ones. You also are basing it on one of the endings where he succumbs to the town's demons and misery. In the good ending he accepts he is his wife's killer and moves on with his life instead of constantly wailing in his own misery.

No, I am saying that taking care of the people you love who are very, very ill can be a vexing and tiring experience, and I'm both saying this from firsthand experience and from knowing people who dealt with similar situations. I never killed anyone and I always treated the people I took care of with respect and love, but it was not pleasant at all.

James is a bad person but also he is a videogame character. He is not real, so I'm not going to treat him like a real person or see him as such.
He is a cautionary tale of mental illness, stress and depression. The game makes it clear that what he did was wrong but the game also, at least from my interpretation, it shows that those who commit the worst sins must learn to forgive themselves and not wallow in their own self-pity and despair.
OBVIOUSLY you don't need to kill someone to find a message you relate to in James' story, Angela's story, Eddie's story, etc, and to find their characters sympathetic.

NTA you're talking to. At the risk of blogging I all I'm going to say is my father was exactly like James and if being a caretaker really drives you to that brink of despair and selfishness you are a bad person. It sucks to take care of people who cannot care for themselves. But the victim shouldn't have to pay for your failings. Not trusting people like him has legitimately saved my life irl regardless of if they are changed now.

No. 249682

>>249674
Well, yeah, I'm not saying James did a good thing or that he is a inherently good boy widdle lost soul… if he were just that he would not be in Silent Hill.

I'm saying that there are aspects in his flaws that people outside of annoying men might find relatable or sad in a way that hits close to home: it could be the situation he got in, it could be his guilt, it could just be that being a caretaker sucks, what have you.
You don't need to be exactly like him or be a bad person to like him or find him relatable: he's a fictional character and he especially was made to be up to interpretation.
I don't forgive James for killing his bedridden, intensely ill wife, but I still found his character relatable and interesting for various reasons: his caretaking situation hit close to home, but also his depression, his guilt, his willingness to fight his stagnating mind and escape from the demonic influence of Silent Hill were all interesting facets of him, and in general it was refreshing to see a game that treats mental illness without demonizing it or turning it into thriller schlock.

He is meant to be flawed, that's the point, that's why he is in Silent Hill. That does not stop people from feeling sympathetic. It helps that he is a character and not a real person.
For example, I found Angela the best and most relatable character in the game. That doesn't mean I will trust women like Angela or that I have killed my father or that I have been raped. We engage with fiction through its hyperbole and its suspense of disbelief, and not all of us are going to see fictional characters exactly like we would if they were real people.

Yes, the first three are a trilogy and you can't skip any of those. I forgot to what extent AA4 is connected to the OG trilogy and if you can play it separately or not, but I'd recommend playing it after the first three.
Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice were made without the involvement of the original creator of the franchise (he later made DGS/Ace Attorney Chronicles) so they're considered lower quality in terms of writing by some fans and personally, I hate the direction those games took and haven't even played SoJ, but you might enjoy them too. Anyway, they are considered part of their own trilogy together with AA4, plus you should play the OG trilogy before playing DD and SoJ, so, to answer your question, yes.

>Also are there other games like this?

There were two spin-off games about Miles Edgeworth called Ace Attorney Investigations. The first one was officially localized, while the second was never released outside Japan and got a fan translation. These games focus less on the trials and more on the "investigation"/detective part of cases.
Shu Takumi (the creator) also made a completely unrelated puzzle/mystery game called Ghost Trick. You might like that one as well.
I haven't played other game franchises with similar themes and gameplay as AA, but I see people usually recommend the Zero Escape series, Hotel Dusk, Aviary Attorney, and Professor Layton.

NTA but I finally played the layton/ace attorney crossover last year and loved every bit of it, I think most critiques comes from people who have only played one of the series (AA fans said the story was too farfetched, which is the vein of Layton games, while Layton fans thought the court sections were too long and investigating was on a second plane). Layton took a bit of protagonism, specially towards the end, but in general I thought it was pretty balanced.

This game is pretty much the predecessor of DGS/TGAA and it was pretty fun to play it after finishing DGS and look onto their similarities. Apart from the writting and design (same guys as DGS), the court system is very similar to it too.

Hi nonnas! What are your favorite / the best retro games (or old games in general)? I realised I am having a lot more fun with older videogames than the current new ones (unless they are indie).

Anybody else here played Sailor Moon: Another Story for the SNES? This is the first time I'm emulating an old game like this my computer is very weak so I don't play much vidya in general and it took me a while to get used to it because not only do the enemies not have any health bar but the boss fight difficulty is weirdly irregular. The first boss in the second chapter was a DRAG to get through and made me fear for the next bosses but then the next bosses are way weaker. At the point I am it's easier because one of the potential party members (after you find her accessories) is ridiculously op it's sailor Saturn sailor Pluto also has a really op ability. Some people enjoy challenges, but I find it funnier to steamroll the enemies.

I haven’t been in the loop with Borderlands in years but got excited when I heard there was a new Tales game. I thought it was a sequel with the OG cast but it’s a whole new story. The protags look like Cyberpunk 2077 rejects and according to reviews it’s on par with BL3 writing. Pain.

Sorry I know this is a few days old but I follow videogames on twitter and theres been a lot of talk about this and how some fans arnt happy. Also the original VA is now being called a terf by some LGBT people on twitter. I've not played the game but remember there being a segment on an NHK gaming programme and I really dont see how she was ever interpreted as being "queer representation" after hearing the directors comments about her, pretty much came off as being aimed at horny men.

No. 251532

Wait, how is she a TERF? I thought the controversy came from her weird financial demands and her opposition to abortion. You can't be a radical feminist and pro life, that contradicts one of the main tenets of radical feminism. TRAs need to stop saying TERF when what they actually mean is "non-TRA."

Interesting how TRAs are so eager to lump as many people they dislike in with radfems as possible, then turn around and accuse us of affiliating ourselves with those people. From their perspective, everyone who isn't on their side must be conspiring against them.

I can tell you why, it's very stupid. I wish I were joking but I'm not.

>lady gaga played the first game on the Wii U or the Switch and posted about how obsessed with it she was on twitter
>the MC and her rival/childhood friend have a very close friendship and in the second game Bayonetta saves Jeanne from hell and jokes about giving her a wake up kiss to wake her the fuck up so she doesn't die

Nonna I know this is late and you already got some great answers, but I want to mention a couple more. Another nonna mentioned Tales of Destiny + Eternia. I think Symphonia is worth mentioning here because of Raine Sage, who is one of my favorite heroines in existence. (The main girls in the game, while I love them, do have some stereotypical flaws.) Tales of the Abyss also has solid female characters throughout, even though I didn't find any of them as incredible as Raine. And though this is more of an SRPG, the Fire Emblem Tellius games (Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn) from that era have good female characters too.

Not an older game, very new, but after Xenoblade 1 and 2 could be iffy with its female characters (many armor choices in 1, the…entire deal with 2), Xenoblade 3 has really great heroines as well! And only one of them has a cleavage-revealing outfit! (Although the dub apparently made one of the characters a "they" for some reason, you wouldn't know it by playing the game, I only know because I decided to look up her character art once. This character is very obviously female.)

Ok so I'm done with the main content in Bayonetta 3. Spoilers ahead. I don't like playing as Viola, parrying is bullshit because you'll play most chapters as Bayonetta and use ZR to dodge and activate witch time, then you're given a few chapters with Viola and she activates witch time by parrying, which is done with R and not ZR. And her witch time sucks ass, it's way too short. Aside from that the game is fun and I need to unlock more stuff and find all the umbran tears. Jeanne's minigame was annoying as hell. Visiting Tokyo and Paris in the game was weird as fuck because they looked way too accurate, I could guess with shops irl where in which scenes sometimes.

As for the story it's fun for like 90% of the game, then it shits the bed in the last chapters. They butchered my boy Luka by turning him into a supernatural fairy creature thing despite the entire point of the character being that he's a normal human and can still keep up with what's going on. I'm guessing he's half fairy instead of half-demon because Capcom would have sued everyone and everything at Platinum Games otherwise, since Luka was always Dante as a human before that. Jeanne and Bayonetta die except they don't. But no they do. Because some of the damage caused by the villain are cancelled or some shit but it's super vague, unlike the end of Bayonetta 1 when she gets out of her casket and acts all sassy and shit. The final boss really reminded me of the one in Astral Chain that was cool. And I loved when Mysterious Destiny started playing. But anyway, the writers tried too hard to make the game look super serious and sad but it failed and the end looks melodramatic as fuck. Baal is the cutest demon idgaf what anyone else says.

I was so looking forward to playing P5R because many people with similar taste recommended it to me and I loved SMT5 so much, plus I was really excited about the life sim aspect. I'm not sure if I'm missing something but I'm disappointed with the writing of the story so far even though I'm early in. I'm finding the first storyline with the abusive PE teacher really creepy and hard to play and I'm just getting something like a scrote or unsettling vibe overall. I feel retarded or like I'm missing something because so many people love this game and it's supposed to be one of the "best RPGs of all time".

It's a very fun game to play thru and the music and aesthetics are wonderful, but the story is pretty lacking imo, especially since it wants to make a strong statement but is scared to do so, so all the arcs and game end up half-baked to not anger anyone.
The first castle is hard to play thru, but the rest are just cartoon-level villains (at least the new arc they included in P5R was wonderful). Unfortunately you're right with the scrote vibes, these games bank on fanservice (it's specially bad on P4 and P5), you will get a not-so-nice surprise about how they treat Ann & Ryuji later on. I liked most of the social sim stories though.
I feel most of the people that praise it so much it's because P5 was their first contact with a more story-based game kek. Overall, it's a fun game and I don't regret playing it, but it also isn’t the best game of all time like people claim. I think it's one of these games that is more fun to play when you have someone besides you to make fun of the game/characters with.

The first palace feels tedious and endless during the first playthrough, it's a thing every new player experiences in P5. I think it gets a LOT better after it, and 40 hours in the game is where the story starts to get interesting imo. Like the other anon said, the new things they added in P5R are brilliant.
As for the fanservice, don't forget that this is a japanese game so there's going to be scrotey moments but as far as I remember the SA theme and creepy teacher thing end with the first dungeon and rarely gets brought up afterwards. Definitely push through if you feel like it nona, it gets better.

Given that male PE teachers are usually fucked in the head and more likely to be disgusting perverts with their female students compared to other male teachers, I'd say the whole thing was uncomfortable because of how believable it was, aside from the supernatural elements of course. I played like half of the original game and I'm in the middle of that arc too in P5R, but I'm taking my time playing it. The next arcs didn't interest me nearly as much story-wise, and btw I'm 100% the arc with Yusuke and Madarame was directly inspired by the Butterfly of Death arc in Kindaichi Case Files, that arc fucked me up when I saw it on TV as a kid but it was great.

Yes, the whole point is that you have to make him confess to everyone, including the police, that he'd routinely beat the fuck out of his students and that he molested Ann's friend to prevent him from doing it again.

Sorry nonnies, I don't think I explained myself well. I don't have a problem with creepy stuff or dark themes including realistic depictions of abuse. It more feels like how it is handled creeps me out. Why put a story involving abuse at the very beginning of the game in the tutorial so you can hear children screaming as they are being whipped while Morgana tells you that you can save in a safe room or whatever. It just feels really off to me and it doesn't seem well written or sensitively handled so far. I don't particularly mind fanservice either but same thing as above. It's possible I'm just triggered and being retardedly picky about the writing. I'm going to keep playing anyway since I really want to like it. I'll reserve any more judgement till I get past the abuse part.

From the looks of it they look at suggestions from Reddit, so it's an idiocracy and the packs are very pandery. They already released an Australia pack, idk if they see enough reason to release a New Zealand pack. The Twilight (nocturnal) pack was kinda my last hope. Or they would maybe do some troll thing like "flightless birds pack" since everyone is asking for aviaries. I can't really think of any other way they're still going to include the Kiwi. Or maybe an endangered animals pack? They at least added the platypus in the wetlands pack, my absolute favorite bizarre animal, but kiwis are a close second!

Hey nonna, I am playing Disco Elisyum too! not too far from the very beginning either, only finished the first day, took a long time as I was exploring a lot.
I agree that a big chunk of things feel extremely cringy, especially the 'lol randumXD' bad answers that you can choose, they all center around choosing your character to keep being a raging alcoholic and an extreme pervert, talking about sex crap or sexuality. It also makes me feel like as if the games political part is kind of trying to force you to think in their own way (not that i am a poltard) if that makes sense. But i am a sucker for detective cases and i enjoy the VA, plus i cannot refund the game anymore so I am staying with it. I feel like Ace Attorney will forever remain to be the best detective game in my heart.

It’s perfect rainy day game where you’re a shopkeeper selling various strange plants to strange customers while strange happenings going on. I especially love the collecting and categorizing of plants, makes my brain so happy 10/10

Are you talking about the Homo-Sexual Underground Thought anon? iirc the whole point of that route was for Detective to stop obsessing over his and other people's sexuality. But because this is Elysium he goes about this in the most obnoxious and backwards way possible and obsesses about it for eight hours straight anyway. People like that route because it opens up extra dialogue with Kim and you learn more about him at the end of it (vidrel).

I bred and released 600 piggies (also foxes and monitors), collected 100? reward animals. Got lots I would've never been able to afford unless I make whole factory farm zoos for conservation credits. Which I'll probably have to do anyway if I ever want lions or other popular animals. Though this was for the 3 year anniversary challenge. My brain is too fried to sleep.

You can align with different political stances (communism, facism, capitalism and liberalism) and they all are presented in a way that has its merits and all are - in my opinion - equally mocked in the end.

Also really want to buy the Rimworld DLCs because I love Rimworld, but each DLC is 20 dollars and they never have huge sales, so it's gonna be the 20 dollars. Since there are 3, the total cost of the DLCs would add up to 60 dollars, again, not willing to pay that. I might buy just one of the DLCs, but I really hate spending all that money, even 20 dollars. Not like I'm struggling, I just never feel right spending money on non-necessities. Mainly just gamer salt with me. Want something to play over winter break maybe.

It's honestly looking slightly more interesting than most other FF games of after FFX to me. I hope it will be a bit edgier again and have less k-pop faces.

I miss the times when new FF games could legit excite me like hell. I cannot even tell you what exactly most of the new ones were missing, just that nothing did it for me anymore. I wish they would do something like IX again though, maybe as lower priority project. I just think that IX was one of the best, certainly had the best OST and the landscapes and cities were exactly how I want fantasy games to look like. I also think that FF Tactics was awesome and wish they had made more handheld games like that.

Nintendo nonnas, is it better to buy a digital copy over physical? Which one do you prefer and why?
I am thinking of getting physical copies of otome games on Switch (if i would like some of their cover arts for example, but i think generally it's nice to have them physically), but i feel like the reward system screws up A LOT of physical copy buyers. Having a switch is already expensive enough, but a big chunk of my desired games are way too overpriced. Eg i plan on getting Splatoon 3 too but i am going to get a digital version most likely.
I tend to feel paranoid over owning a digital game lately as a lot of corpos pull weird shit with randomly deleting their games off store pages, etc. Feeling pretty puzzled, because i dont want to overspend on games.

I prefer physical copies, but Nintendo does interesting sales for their first-party games more often now than on the 3DS so downloading games isn't a bad idea either depending on what you want. Some games have so many patches and updates that physical copies aren't always complete games like on the 3DS either, and your saves will be in the consoles or sd card, not in your cartridge like before as well. If you're the type to travel a lot and you want to play on the go without risking losing cartridges it's good too. However I think physical copies are better to preserve games even after online stores are closed.

You can only hack a first generation switch. You also need to manually modify the hardware. There is always the risk of bricking your console because of your own mistake, or Nintendo catching you online.

It would be so good but I feel like Bethesda would absolutely fuck it up entirely somehow in terms of plot or performance. Imagine seeing picrel in better graphics without the game shitting itself and randomly crashing every 3 hours. God I wish Obsidian had more time in the first place.

I love the game too and I would probably hate a remake/remaster even if they did it because it is hard to create perfection twice. I still want one just to see though. It could turn out good. Like >>254850 said, the empty desert feels terrible but it could be remedied by modern graphics/hardware allowing more detailed landscapes and objects in general. I would love more world building and story with all of the factions.
Also, anyone else fucking HATE Ulysses? That was the shitiest dlc and most annoying self-inserted character ever. Best DLC for me is Old World Blues for plot and characters. I do really love the aesthetic of Dead Money, but the game play just annoyed me.

The Legion was unfinished, there's some mods that put the cut content back into the game that they didn't have time to finish, not to mention the JSawyer mod that he finished privately. There's a SHITTON of stuff that was supposed to be made for this game that didn't make it in because of the time constrictions. I don't really want the game to be re-done. I want the same iconic voices and no stupid re-writing, but I'd love to see the game with better graphics, running better and have all the cut content/missing content in the game.
Plus, that'd make it possible for them to make side-content for the game, like comics, short stories, and so on, which this game never got.

Not the answer I was expecting, I also wish cut content from all the games could be re-explored. I didn't know the Legion was missing more content

I think the graphics are…fine? Like yeah, it's an old game and some mods will fix it, but because of the issues with bugs and the crashes, cramming mods into the game makes it more unstable too, sadly. I mostly want the game to run better.

As for the ragdolls… they do have their charm, but it'd be nice if this game wasn't tied to gamebryo and all the shit that comes with it. I always mod my game so things don't ragdoll and clip because it can cause crashes.
The wiki has some info on the cut content:

Honestly, I don't know if I trust Obsidian either, since only JSawyer works there now. Gonzales, who is the main guy behind the writing and lore, has left, and Avellone is gone too. I want Bethesda to have NOTHING to do with the second west coast game or any remakes/remasters. Since Microsoft owns both Obsidian and Bethesda, we can at least get one, but I dunno… I feel like no remakes or modern sequels have been as good as their predecessors. I am so ambivalent on modern takes on old classics, but I still want some new life into the game because I love it so much.

I love masked men. I guess his bandages count as one for my smooth brain. His voice is so hot. Even with Fallout's aged graphics I want him so bad.
I wish we could have more about him or see some interaction between him and the Legion. I didn't want to finish the dlc because we never see him again. I didn't even particularly like Honest Hearts, but he was such a good character with nuance despite obviously being extremely Mormon kek. Maybe his conviction or his eloquence is what does it, plus the rage in contrast with being so religious?

Yeah I got mine from a rando from ebay. He sold it for 120 or something right during the craze when Switch prices exploded everywhere, but I got it, hacked it and it works perfectly.

No nothing with the hardware if you have the old serial numbers. It's just about putting programs onto the switch and establishing a connection with the PC basically the only physical thing you need is a "jig" that you have to connect with your right joycon rail to access the recovery mode that you need to modify the firmware and such.
>>254858
Check your serial number, there are lists that show you which ones are hackable. If it's one of them you should find a lot of step by step tuts for hacking. And no Nintendo doesn't care. The worst thing that could happen is that you play an online game and they notice it and ban you. All it does is that you won't be able to play online games it has no effect on your switch itself or any of the single player games.

I'm replaying all the chapters in Bayonetta 3 right now. Replaying as Viola is easier now that I've gotten used to her, and I'm trying to get all the witch hearts and moon fragments to upgrade Bayo and Viola and try to play on hard mode later. I think I don't mind the ending anymore because rewatching some of the cutscenes makes me realize that all the witch didn't get killed, just absorbed by Singularity so Jeanne should be fine and the storybook could probably get a sequel with a free or paid DLC later. I realized I've spent more hours on this one than on Bayonetta 2.

very autistic rant. i just got back into minecraft and was looking for youtube videos to learn how to do things. all the videos are so ADHD and clickbaity. the titles took a page from SEO and all read like "i survived 100 days on hardcore superflat"; "67 minecraft things you didn't know"; "i terraformed this massive mountain in hardcore", "i built a mega dragon zen temple in hardcore." i don't fucking get the emphasis on doing things the excrutiating way in hardcore if the purpose is creative construction, what does it fucking matter, just switch to creative and build it. it's a waste of time for the makers and for me. and all the intros the makers do have the f5 view of their sprite doing weird squatting gestures and bending over. the game itself is loaded with so many features i feel like i dont know how to do anything in it, but the videos are so fucking weird and annoying it's hard to watch them.

so far i'm just connecting villages with rail lines and upgrading them in creative, then switching to survival to actually play and kill mobs. i don't actually enjoy wasting my time strip mining.

Absolutely, specially if you've played the previous ace attorney games. I followed the fan translation and was hooked to the game for 4 years, the ost and characters are wonderful.
I have to say the second game (…arc? I haven't been able to play the localization yet) is a bit weaker than the first because due to the original game selling poorly, they had to squish the story of 2 games onto a single one (it was supposed to be a triology), but it still holds ok.

It will take me a while to find it because the tumblr account where I saved these is gigantic, but I'm pretty sure I read a few years back an interview with Takumi where he said his original plan was to make a new trilogy, that's why the story is long. Not sure if Capcom agreed on that idea, but they weren't happy with DGS1's sales, so DGS2 was pretty much a "gift" to Takumi so he could end the story.
It also would explain how DGS1 is so slow-paced compared to DGS2 and why some stuff is not explained (also there are numerous complains in the artbooks about the lack of budget they were given for DGS2, and how because it and time, they weren't able to add some ideas they had planned)

You know what's funny? In Xenoblade 2 the main female characters are treated like they're total sluts obsessed with the MC when they're actually fully developed characters who just happen to wear short clothes and whose arcs don't fully depend on the MC (which is especially obvious in the DLC), meanwhile Zeke, Mikhail and Malos literally exist in the same game.

To me the two most memorable NPCs from recent Obsidian games are Fantastic and the Gelato man from Alpha Protocol. They're both wildly incompetent yet are guarding extremely important systems, they're just glitches in the bureaucracy that you're the first to uncover
Also my favorite weapon is the Abilene Kid BB gun, because it secretly has very high critical damage, which means it's one of the best sneak attack weapon in the game (and can be acquired as soon as you reach New Vegas). I use it to sneak kill patrols and caravans in the desert, since it doesn't make you lose reputation or karma if it's done discretely

I have a soft spot for grumpy/cold characters and Boone is not that good looking for sure, but he has all the rights to be so bitter (out of all the enemies he could be involved with, he got the most dehumanizing one)
I remember feeling very frustrated too because he wouldn't have emotional progress, but when he died in my playthrough and i read his letter he just felt much softer than what i knew him for and i started crying, felt so sorry for him and the fact that he would have never been able to go back to better days

I'm playing Persona5 for the first time (not Royal) and I can't decide which girl Joker should date. As a lover of romance, which route gives the best romantic content? I've been looking up who's the best and all I can find are creepy scrotes on gamefaqs being weird about Futaba and the teacher. I did the Hawaii date with Hifumi which I thought was super sweet, but I'm a bit sad she's not in my party. So yeah, which option who's not an adult or a literal middle schooler is more romantic and has good chemistry with Joker?

ann's route becomes so nlog and annoying to me kek, but when theres actually romantic parts the chemistry is good i think.

The girls' routes aren't the best in p5 (not to be a fujo but honestly some of the boys' felt more thought out and serious at times). The ones I could tolerate were Ann because I like her character and Haru. Makoto is awkward and Futaba smells of incest (plus she acts really childish) so of course it would attract creepy gamer incels. Hifumi's nice too but as you said she doesn't have much involvement beyond her confidant route.

No. 257187

>>257119
I don't think any of the routes in Persona 5 are particularly romantic, especially in vanilla P5. I usually end up doing either harem because why not, or choosing Haru or Hifumi because they're pretty and I like them as characters (sorry, not very deep at all).

You might like Royal more for the addition of Kasumi – or even Akechi's new confidant scenes, if you're a BL fag like me.

I'm looking to play a mobile rhythm game like Ensemble Stars!! available on iOS. I don't care about the story, the graphics, or even the language as long as the game itself meets the following criteria.
>Doesn't punish me for being good
LLSIF, for example, starts you off with 20LP, and it costs your entire energy bar to play one song on expert difficulty. This makes the early game extremely slow and boring, as it takes forever to grind to a point where I get to play two songs in a row.
>Meanwhile in Enstars
Each song costs exactly 1BP no matter the difficulty. I'm guaranteed 10 songs/~30 minutes of gameplay no matter my skill level. I'd love it if there were no "energy costs" at all like in console games, but these are mobile titles designed around microtransactions, so that's probably asking too much.
>Doesn't punish me for being bad
LLSIF, Bandori, Puroseka and many other rhythm games have mid-song fail states, so if I perform poorly I get kicked out of the song AND lose whatever LP I spent to start it. I hate this because it makes it near impossible to challenge myself with a higher difficulty. How am I supposed to learn if they won't let me try?
>Meanwhile in Enstars
They let you play the entire song before telling you that you failed. Even if I fail miserably, I still have a chance to maybe get the hang of it and, more importantly, enjoy the song.
>Has a fair amount of content and/or is fairly difficult
I loved Dankira! Boys Be Dancing for a lot of reasons, but in the end I dropped it because it was way too easy. It had only 4 lanes, a small song selection, and– worst of all– no expert level.
>Meanwhile in Enstars
It has dozens of songs of varying difficulties, and if necessary I can adjust the speed of the notes for an extra challenge. It helps that they're always running events and adding new songs, but as long as a game has 3-4 songs I really like, new content doesn't really matter to me.
>Uses lanes like LLSIF, Utapri, and (ofc) Enstars
This is the pickiest thing and therefore the flimsiest criteria, but I like games that have 5-7 lanes and circular notes. There were other reasons I couldn't get into DEEMO or CYTUS, but one of the main obstacles was just disliking how they play. Games with vertical, rectangular lanes like Bandori and Puroseka are kinda OK I guess. Whatever they were doing in the Hypnosis Mic game was too whacked out for me. Also I prefer to play two-handed in "landscape mode", so "portrait mode" games like Show By Rock, Tap Tap Revenge, or Piano Tiles don't do it for me.

Sorry for writing so much. Does anybody know of a game that I might enjoy? I h
