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.

The seasonal story/triumphs should be available for a few more months. Not sure about the challenges.

No. 231132

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!

No. 231293

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.

No. 231295

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).

No. 231297

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.

My wife keeps telling me to play this to which my response is always "mehhhhh" because I have the 'tism and playing new games feels weird to me. I love watching her play because the art style is great and it has a nice chill atmosphere but I've never really "got on" with Zelda games before. I liked Wind Waker most because I just spent my time looking for treasure at sea. One day I'll get around to it.

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. It was always a jokey franchise but it was total overkill with the sex jokes and everything else. "hurrr dildo penis boobies farts durrr". I bought the 4th one for peanuts in a PSN store sale and I mainly just use it for the character creator, kek. I keep telling myself I'm gonna complete the game but I only do stuff to get the money to go clothes shopping.

Glad I'm not the only one who hates saint row 3. It completely fucked up the "serious but still dark humor" tone of the first two. Saints row 4 was a good superpower sim game tho.

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.

No. 233529

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

samefag still playing XB3, at the end of chapter 5 currently. The amount of sidequests in this game is exhausting me now. I keep having to force myself out of them to get on with the story. I felt this way about BoTW too, never reached Ganon because I was trying to do all the side content first before I burned out. I feel like I'm getting old or something, are games making shorter campaigns and making up for it with side content now?

No. 233916

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.

I dislike puzzle games and never play them. I guess i'm insecure because i think i'm too dumb to get through them, when i watch other people play them and resolve things i'm like "yup, would have never guessed it".

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?

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.

i personally play puzzle games to be stumped. there's a frustrating joy that comes with solving something that took you hours to solve lol. Completely understand what you mean though. People play games to be immersed and if puzzle games doesn't do that for you, then it's best not to force yourself.

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.

Oh my god yes nonnie i've been playing MMOs alone all my life and the few times i had to group with moids for a specific quest or something, i HATED it and often lost interest in the game quickly after because the higher level you are, the more you have to interact with other people. 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 don't really like JRPGs. The last one I enjoyed was a remake of the first Final Fantasy for the PSP. I don't mean believable as in their circumstances because video games will always be extraordinary for obvious reasons. I mean believable as in "does the character I've created feel like they would do this". 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 now use a test character to get a feel for a game and then write my "real" character around the events of the game I plan to take, the companions I wish to use, the playstyle I like, etc.

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
>Repetitive button presses during farming, hurt my hand
>Some Ooblets, dance moves, and Plenny's orders are unbalanced. Spent too much time growing zinookas and making blue goo pie
>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.
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.
I always played multiplayer games on my own. You don't really need communication but I guess it becomes necessary when you reach endgame content. Give it a go and try to find clans/guilds/groups that are dominated people at least in their 20s.

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)

I was thinking about Otome Yuusha when talking about the otome mobile game, I know Utapri started on the PSP. I used it as a specific example because of how the characters are dressed, since it's a heroic fantasy story from what I've been told, unlike Utapri which happens in our world and era so the characters war normal stuff or stage costumes.

im guessing they chose the subtitle engage because of the ring motif (the ring is the centerpiece of the image) they really could have put a ring somewhere in the logo design. the retard in the design room chose a sans serif font for the subtitle needs their design credentials revoked.

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…

No. 239243

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.

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 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.

Honestly, I first played this in the middle of the night during a family holiday so I think the vibes of the area I played in made me ignore any problems other may have had. Love the series but have not had the chance to play the third game.

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'm a shitty gamer overall but I looove BOTW. I love the freedom kek. I'm excited for TOTK!

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.

Now I’m just wondering should I buy this or the CLANNAD VN…, if anyone’s played either or both and can tell me that would be awesome

No. 241223

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.
The short VN Planetarian is better in that respect, if you need to play something from Key I love Kanon and Air due to nostalgia but they are kinda shit too, idk if you can get an all ages version

Don't judge me too harshly, nonnas, but I've been dabbled in the new(lol) Call of Duty beta. I notice they make some change to try slow down things in multiplayer (I hate how it's gotten more and more stupidly fast-paced in recent years) so I guess that's one plus. Other than that, it's a run run shoot shoot samey type of shite game that will probably take #1 best-selling as usual.

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. It’s the kind of game I’d play for a week straight then leave it for months, then come back and repeat the cycle.

Not at all cringy, as other anon said it's a horror story first and foremost. There are multiple ways the story can go (8 endings in the OG game, 13 in the new version) and the puzzles are really, really good.

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.

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'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.

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.

I've never played an SMT game besides getting filtered by Matador, but don't be insulting tokusatsu like that, powersuits are really cool.

No. 243385

nta but they really clash with what you usually see in Megaten as a whole. In an another franchise it could potentially work but here it's just out of place. I think Aogami looks goofy in SMT5 compared to the other characters for example.

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.

It's corny

>soul hackers 2 was terrible about that, and that it flopped super hard
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.

Imo the phone part is worse

Iirc they're absurdly hard, like "if you missed picking up that small thing three levels ago you can't finish the game" hard. Now if you want a more modern (not that modern, it was released in the 90s) point and click series made by a woman I heartily recommend the Gabriel Knight games
I find the best cure for that kind of feeling is either to take a break for a little while or to find an indie game with a great atmosphere

Why are people so peeved by the phone number requirement? I'm kinda unphased because you need one for a lot of signups now, also I don't really multiaccount so it doesn't change much for me. If the phone number is used for security checks for suspicious login attempts, even better. Is it a privacy thing or something else?

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 have never heard of this game but seeing that its fully voice acted and the protagonist is voiced by tim curry makes me really want to try it
i like exploring niche old games so I am up for the challenge, but i will definitely keep hints on tab to be safe. i saw gameplay for kings quest 7 and thought it looked cute, so starting with 6 sounds like a good idea. thanks noni

The fun part about Gabriel Knight is that all 3 games look completely different. 1st one is a 2D adventure game, 2nd one is an interactive movie, 3rd one is 3D
Just noticed that 2 puzzles from the 3rd game actually have wikipedia pages, what the hell??

No. 243748

No but I'm close enough that I could also order a copy of Bayonetta 1 online. The copy of Bayonetta 2 I have is from the UK and I have Bayo 1 on Switch already but the downloadable version takes a lot of space and I don't feel like getting an SD card just to be able to download a few DLCs on top of having that game.

When I was younger I kind of had this stupid idea that all future pcs and consoles would be backwards compatible for all past games but that's just not possible. Emulators work for a lot of stuff but not everything. Some games are just literally unplayable now unless you own some old PC/OS/etc to play them on. The un-ending march of progress is annoying as hell.

Finally finished Xenoblade 3. Pretty good story. Kinda tired out to play more, beat superbosses etc, but the game was fun and I did get a lot of hours on my save.
