I try not to get my hopes up, but if From Software ever blesses us with Bloodborne Part 2, I'll spontaneously produce enough milk to nourish every orphaned baby on Earth. We need more cool-ass female hunters in this world, and less GRRM.
I’m tentatively hopeful that Elden Ring will be good but god why the fuck did they get him on board? I hope he’s only there to give guidance on the Nordic themes and not as a full on writer because I’ve grown to like Dark Souls’ style of storytelling. I don’t want some convoluted plot shit or character drama getting in the way of my sweet, lonely dark fantasy atmosphere.
Tbh my dream would be a game like DS’s setting but with more allowance in multiplayer without turning a game into MMO stat grind/gear trade cancer. Still no chat - I just want to gesture around with strangers to find things to kill together then the ability to sit down in chairs and eat with them afterwards. Maximum comfy.
Also I’m trying to craft a 1/12 cloak like Eileen’s to go on my dolls, it’s only at the drawing board right now but I’m planning to articulate it with wire and use feathers from… somewhere.
I'm picturing it being like Dark Souls where they just made sequels with a very similar storyline but with different settings and (mostly) different characters. From could just make the same game over and over again from here on out and I'd keep buying/playing it, because the Soulsborne formula is perfection for me. >>39890>I don’t want some convoluted plot shit or character drama getting in the way of my sweet, lonely dark fantasy atmosphere.

Anyone else really enjoying Shadowbringers?
This scene was really cute and I unironically ship them. Does this make me a furry?

I've recently replayed Cry of Fear and it made me hungry for more games where you get to explore cities alone, perferably by night.
They don't have to have combat

I am so stocked to see my fave tragic love story play out in gorgeous graphics that I have decided to replay FFVII. I am at Gongaga already and I am relieved to find out this game is not as hard as I remembered, which is good as I don't really enjoy the random encounters. I goddamn love the plot and all the characters.
It's a really smart decision to drop Compilation and make it non-canon to the remake (hope they will not screw it up, but since Square has admitted that the Compilation was a cash grab due to a merge with Enix, I am being relucantly optimistic).

I have Let's Go Pikachu. Let me know if you want to trade or something.
Judging by the new trailer and various quotes and hearsay, I think we will get to spend a lot of quality time with Aerith before her time comes. Everyone and their mother knows she is gonna get murdered by Sephiroth, so they cannot just shock us that it happens. SquareEnix is gonna try their best to make people love her so that their hearts are as broken as Cloud's once it happens.
Looking forward to crying my eyes out.
I wonder how will they deal with her death since it was surprisingly nongraphic in the original. You can't avoid some amount of blood now due to how realistic the graphics are. I hope it will not ruin the mood of the scene.

Anyone got some recs (PC/3DS/NSW) for someone like me? I'm the most casual player ever, I mostly enjoy Pokemon and Animal Crossing esque games. I'm shit at games that require mechanics and my last crack was Stardew Valley.
Hey I love Stardew valley too and a lot of people recommend I play Harvest moon (haven't yet though).
Also there's Graveyard Keeper wich is like SV but not as good I heard.
Already got Yomawari, I'm a fucking coward but it looks really interesting! Thanks anon.>>40843
I tried the last HM but anon… It's REALLY UGLY looking so I deadass stopped playing, so as a reverse rec I'd say you should maybe try older ones with PC emus? A friend told me My time at Portia (PC) is a pretty fun farm sim so maybe you should give it a shot.

The newer Harvest Moon installments are not by the original publisher Marvelous Entertainment, but by Natsume who used to localize them. In the West, Harvest Moon now goes by the name "Story of Seasons". If you’re looking for a nice, relaxing and cute farming game, you should try the Story of Seasons games for the DS. They were all really well done with nice designs. Natsume still releases games under the name of "Harvest Moon", but they indeed are looking very, very bad.
There will also be a remake of Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town for the Switch soon! I am really excited for it and I will get the Switch just for this and Animal Crossing.

Excited yet nervous for release cause I ain't shit when it comes to scares.
Anyone else tentatively waiting?
I still think about Mass Effect and how much I love the universe. I try to get into other sci-fi media and always find myself comparing it to ME. >>40969
I'm not optimistic, lol. I'm bitter they segued all of Bioware's best people into Anthem and left Andromedia with the scraps. They could easily remake ME1 and make it an AU or something if they want an easy redemption, but I'm sure they could screw that up, too. >>40973
ME3 has a casual option, can't remember if ME2 does but I'm pretty sure its Easy is manageable for people inexperienced with shooters. Unfortunately, ME1 fighting is a clunky mess regardless of the difficulty.

I got into Mass Effect a few years ago and i remember it being one of my favorite sci fi games ever made. Something about it felt so vast, without being boring. There were so many species and places to go. I loved all the lore, as well as the aliens you meet along the way. I had such a blast and i really think about going back to replaying the first 3 games (the only ones that exist.)

My favorite game on PS4 right now is Red Dead Redemption 2. You don't even have to play the first game because this one is a prequel, so it's extra good. I really fell in love with the world and characters, despite never giving a shit about Western wild west stuff before hand. it's REALLY GOOD!

I've been playing Judgment / Judge Eyes lately. Compared to the Yakuza games, which this game takes place in the same city, Judgment is more slower paced and I like that a lot. I played the demo months ago and it was long as hell. Took like 3 hours to complete. I really like the change of pace, because I've had multiple instances in the Yakuza games where I felt rushed going from story point to story point, they made it seem like I had no time to wind down and relax.

Same, no shame here either. Liara best girl. And Andromeda wasn't bad, honestly, it wasn't a masterpiece but it didn't deserve all the hate. I do wish we'd gotten more of a First Contact experience, the introduction to the Angara felt v cheap>>40998

File: 1563841631071.jpg (579.34 KB, 1000x563, metro-2033-redux.jpg)
I'm hooked on the Metro series at the moment. I bought Metro 2033 Redux and Last Light in the Steam sale, then later got Exodus for my PS4. I love survival horror and post apocalyptic stuff so this is right up my street. 2033 can be a little slow in places, and there were a bunch of glitches, but it was still so enjoyable to play.>>41160
Is it worth playing? I've played most Assassin's Creed titles before this, but for some reason I've hesitated to get Odyssey.
Recommending RDR to someone who's only played JRPGs?
Rockstar is good at writing characters, but I just hate how basically the whole main story is you playing as the bad guys.And how there is no way to avoid a horribly depressing ending.

If you don't mind GBA graphics, play Mother 3. It's not the most typical, but it's fucking great and doesn't have enemy battles out of nowhere (you see the enemies on the screen and can avoid them).
You don't need to play the previous parts of the series to get the story and enjoy it, though there are some brief references. You can google them after you finish the game.
Avoid spoilers like plague!
Persona 5 is amazing. Im pretty new to JRPGs too but loved persona. Playing the previous games isn’t necessary, though I’m sure there’s references I missed. You can’t do everything your first play through either so it’s actually fun to play a second time.
I’ve also played Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and enjoyed it, despite not usually liking open world games and preferring turn based combat. Just be warned, it’s centered around that whole “big tiddy anime girl” shit lmao the story is decent otherwise.
Kingdom hearts is good too but the story is a mess. Like I played 1 and 2, but still don’t understand shit in 3 because apparently all the side games count as ~vital story~.

this might have been touched upon in the previous thread, does anyone have comfy game recommendations? i'm trying to find something new to play while i wait for the new animal crossing. pic related, replaying va11-hall-a now and i forgot how relaxing and cozy it is to just hear characters vent and watch the world go by
It depends on how much time your ready to play a game to complete it. Pokemon is good because it's easy and not too long but there are so many things you can do that you can potentially spend hundreds of hours. Final Fantasy is a famous series, the most popular ones are the PS1 games but FF6 is also very popular. They're not "too" long to complete from what I've been told, bu then again I only played FF1 to FF4 so far. Fans always fight each other on whether the recent games are good or trash. I played Fire Emblem Awakening and Fates and liked both, but they're more like tactical RPGs and Fates as several routes, including one that's way more difficult than the others (Conquest). Once I get around the GBA games I'll tell you if they're good or not for beginners.
I like the SMT franchise a lot, I would say Persona 3 to 5 are good for beginners and not too difficlt once you get used to the gameplay. For the main series I'd say SMT4 on the 3DS is one of my favorite games ever and it's also a good entry point to get into SMT but it's pretty hard, especially at the beginning, and it's long, it took me a bit more than 70h to complete my first playthrough. Overall SMT is like Pokemon because almost all the enemies you face can become a playable character so you can customize your party as you wish. Again about P5 since one anon recommended it, the game is long. I never played a Dragon Quest game, a friend said the series is great but not why they're great.

are any of you guys excited for the new fire emblem? i want to play the blue lions route first…
Ugh I want more news about Elden Ring to come out, the silence bores me. I really hope that’s just a working title too because it sounds too generic, like Lord of the Rings and The Elder Scrolls, two huge franchises in pop culture, had yet another grim and gritty fantasy baby. I like
fantasy, I don’t want this to turn out bad but the trailer gave me weird vibes about the tone of the game.
FromSoft also declined a documentary with NoClip which is really disappointing because I want to know more about them and their practices but I guess they want to be secretive.>>41503
Wtf I’ve never heard of this but it looks very cool. Reminds me of PC98 games from what I’ve seen of those (too young, but the graphics and UI have this certain look that fascinates me).
SMT 3 Nocturne pissed me off so much lol. The mood of it is so good, even when it feels empty it kinda works for the eerie atmosphere, the gameplay is also fun but you are right about those games being hard and grindy, i never actually beat it, got frustated.
I never got into persona but would love to play 5 if it ever gets ported to PC.
SMT4 only took me 45hrs, like 8 of which I spent fusing. I don't get how so many people had trouble with that game, I thought it was really easy. I never had
Maybe try the 3DS etrian odyssey games and persona Q? they're easy, the mapping is fun, the characters are cute, and there's a good bit of fujo pandering in pQ if you're into that. I'd recommend playing either etrian odyssey untold: the millennium girl or persona Q first.
I haven't played Strange Journey yet despite having the original game for months but I've been told by many people that it's a masterpiece but not beginner friendly. Not sure I'd recommend it to her if that true.>>41521
I couldn't play Nocturne all that much when I bought it a few years ago because my PS2 was broken and scratched all my games, but I'll play it very soon. If it gets too grindy for me I'll just skip the non-mandatory parts like the labyrinth (?) and the real/bonus final boss, I have so many games to beat. Anyway I loved it from what I played.>>41524>SMT4 only took me 45hrs
I feel like I could have done that but I spent like one third of my time doing almost all the side-quests, including getting the black card, fusing demons and trying to unlock the neutral route. I redid the Kenji fight way too many times but I was locked in the law route no matter what so I'm sure I spent even more time than that on my first playthrough. I'm still salty I never managed to unlock the neutral route because I hated killing Isabeau
but right now I'm about to beat the final boss of SMT4 Apocalypse so I don't really feel like going back to SMT4 now.
>I never had to grind.
Me neither, and I'm sure nobody really needed to from what I've seen. Naraku was really hard at first imo but once I reached Tokyo the game because really easy.
I can't stand the Fire Emblem battle system. The only TRPG's I've ever beaten were the FF Tactics Advanced games.>>41521
I wish I'd known beforehand that the infamous Matador is the third boss. I got stuck, realized I had to grind and redo my entire party and never got back to it.
JRPGs fall under an incredibly large umbrella. I would suggest Kingdom Hearts or Castlevania Symphony of the Night.
Dealing with tedious and complicated menus popping up every now and then are also something I don't like, but Vagrant Story was interesting enough for me, although you probably wouldn't want to play it until you're way more into JRPGS.
I'm also not a big fan of turn-based RPGs, but a few of them like Yokai Watch are entertaining enough for me to push that aside.
Some other JRPGs I also liked are Secret of Mana, Phantasy Star Online, and Chrono Trigger

The 3DS version is easier, I think it’s called Redux.>>41521
I got stuck for a while in the stage for Hikawa’s boss fight because I had to grind a bit for some stronger abilities. The game needs a HD port so bad, some people have been able to get it to look incredible on emulator with the right settings
File: 1564151909311.jpg (21.14 KB, 500x260, 1470004126620.jpg)
I bought the original Strange Journey for the NDS before Redux was announced, I'd feel stupid if I bought almost the same game without playing the one I already have. I'll see how it goes once I actually play it, I'm about to finish SMT4 Apocalypse and after that I'll play SMT Nocturne. The final boss in SMT4A is seriously pissing me off because of its second phase and the RNG that's always working against me. Satan and the last dungeon were piss easy, I don't get it.

I hate it when people shit on some games in a series because "it's bad because there's (actually optional) fanservice, you play as a self insert and you can date some of the characters!", then praise other games in the same franchise because "the art is pretty, the music is pretty and the story is good" when these games are actually not that much better in these aspects and the gameplay and level design are so much worse than the games that supposedly have too much fanservice. You'd think they were reviewing visual novels but no.
When you talk about things you dislike in games with the exact same people such as excessive DLCs, loot boxes and similar practices, different versions or routes of the same game in different cartridges or the fact that some games are released a year later outside of Japan because of botched localisations, or games you can only really play online for no valid reason they don't say anything because it turns out they don't even play video games, they just watch playthroughs on youtube. Yes it's about pic related but not only. I'm glad I bought a brand new copy for only 25€ because it's disappointing so far and people wouldn't stop praising this game and its shitty boring maps literally just because there's less fanservice than the previous games.
dudes I'm obsessed with Atlus, playing persona 5 as we speak and it's so pretty and so so fun wtf yes
been stinging for them to drop catherine: full body so this is amazing in the meantime, so glad I gave it a go. the art is fucking cool
Hard to answer but really for me is either Earthbound, Final Fantasy 9 (and X) or Chronno Triggered
Dragon Quest is kinda the default jrpg franchise, it features all the stereotypes of the genre and always stays the same when it comes to themes and setting so is very newcomer friendly.
Jarpig is a genre i played a ton but i have actually beaten very few games. I was insane about them growing up in the psx era but looking back, most were not that great. I think if you want to know what the hype for the genre was about just play any classic Final Fantasy game. ( I kinda don't like them after X but loved them all from 6 to X)>>41503
I never understood Visual Novels, they feel so low effort and boring to me, i would just rather read a manga. And what is even up with that guy´s hands?
Visual novels are better than manga because their usually voiced and have choices and multiple endings to explore. Also color.
But I guess if your not the type who can self insert it's not as interesting.

I really enjoy games where you can pick your gender and your name, even if they don't have a lot of customization. I find them kind of feminist, as they don't usually change your interactions with the story or characters based on your gender (aside from minor things). That's because it would be a pain in the ass for programmers to do so lol. Consequently, the games usually end up being neutral on your gender and NPCs don't say sexist shit or judge your actions.
Any recommendations? I'll give mine:
— Games with customization I've enjoyed:
+ Pokémon franchise [Nintendo].
+ Rune Factory 4 (you only choose your gender and name) [Nintendo 3DS/Switch].
+ Animal Crossing franchise [Nintendo].
+ Stardew Valley [PC].
+ The Sims 3 [PC].
+ Fantasy Life [Nintendo 3DS].
+ Final Fantasy Chronicles: Echoes of Time (sequel, you only choose your race, gender and name)[Nintendo DS]
+ The Urbz [Nintendo].
+ Age of Wonders III (don't know about the prequels, but you can customize your avatar, the game is nice and cheap on instant gaming but I haven't played a lot) [PC].
— Games with customization that I've played but bored me/weren't appealing:
- God Eater franchise (didn't appeal to me, too much weebness but eh, you can find good discounts on instant gaming right now)[PC/Playstation/other platforms].
- Dragon Quest IX [Nintendo DS].
- Harvest Moon franchise [Nintendo].
- MMORPGS (I liked Aura Kingdom and Maplestory 2, but I always end up quitting these types of games) [PC/Android].
- Staxel (bought it when it had a huge discount on instan gaming, haven't really played it lol) [PC].
— Games with customization that I haven't played yet:
. Fire Emblem franchise (I would like to play the newest games, but they cost tons of money and I'm not paying that for something I don't know if I would enjoy) [Nintendo].
. Monster Hunter Stories (cheaper on Android, I may buy it in the future) [Nintendo/Android].
. Assasin's Creed Odyssey (I already have the game) [Playstation].
. Secrets of Grindea (waiting for it to be finished) [PC].
. My Time at Portia (waiting for a good discount) [PC].
I don't remember more games. It would be nice to hear your recommendations, anons, any videogame genre is welcome as long as you can choose the gender and name of your character!
If you have a 3DS you can get a demo to try FE Awakening a little. Fates' gameplay is similar but a bit more balanced because in FE Awakening some classes are way to OP compared to others. Three Houses' gameplay is different and there's no demo as far as I know unfortunately and while you can't customize the main characters in FE Echoes because they're remakes of FE2 there's a male main character and a female main character. I don't think I can recommend FE Echoes to anyone though, I found it boring at best and annoying most of the time because of the witches and the cantor maps. I also never played any Monster Hunter except a demo on the 3DS, I have no idea how different each game is but you should try demos and see how you feel it. I like some of the games you already cited, I think maybe you should try Sword of Mana and Magical Starsign if you like JRPGs. There's also Persona 3 Portable, both main characters are different so you have different dialogues with the female MC but I liked her a lot. There are other games where the main character is a woman but you can't customize her so not sure if that counts.
Anyway this reminds me of an old article in a Minnie Mag (before it became Witch Mag) from the early 2000 I think, it was saying that video games weren't just for boys and they can be fun and it cited a bunch of recommendations with female protagonists, playable characters and cute characters in general like Resident Evil, Street Fighters, Pokemon Red/Blue because of the cute pokemon and the female NPCs/trainers, Final Fantasy, the legend of Zelda, etc. This is making me feel nostalgic.
The Elder Scroll series, and a lot of other western RPG's have customizable protags.
Destiny and Warframe, if you like shooters.
Second for the Elder Scrolls series. I’ve only played Skyrim but I know the rest treats your protagonist similarly. They are also very mod friendly so you can customise everything about your character (read: not be ugly, lol). You can be gay and marry another female character and no one ever comments on it but that’s mostly because there’s 0 dialogue about marriage outside of the quest for it rather than worldbuilding.
There is also the Dark Souls series, "gender has no bearing on ability", it says in the menus. No male gaze shit or that fantasy crap where women are mistreated because it’s "realistic and gritty" to make it "dark". They’re a solid trilogy of games with online aspects but nothing like an MMO.
If you didnt like Harvest Moon, what’s different about it vs Stardew Valley?
File: 1566523147062.jpg (126.67 KB, 960x544, psn-a.jpg)
Phantasy Star Online is good! It's an MMORPG, the first game isn't online anymore, but there's fan servers that are still pretty active to this day. The second game is still alive and well after 7-ish years of release, even officially coming out to release in English in 2020.
If you have a PSVita, I highly recommend playing Phantasy Star Nova, it uses the same engine as PSO2, but completely available to play without internet connection. It also has it's own fan translation, which is fairly easy to patch if you already have your Vita homebrewed.
I honestly like Nova a bit more than the Online 2 counterpart, which is what it's heavily based off of. The first reason is, because it's offline. The second reason is because this series features a lot of women as leaders. The main ship that's being piloted has a female captain. Also, you can customize how your camp area looks. If you want all women running the shops, go for it, a lot of the women have great buffs compared to the men if you want them to tag along with you during your quest.
Thank you so so much for all your suggestions!!! I'm going to check them out now that I have your opinions backing them up.>>45566
I think I liked more Stardew Valley because it had the mod option and RPG elements, which make the game more similar to the Rune Factory series, I don't know. Thanks for your recommendations btw!!

Since FF VIII Remastered is announced for 3rd septembre:
Who is going to buy it???
FFVIII was the second game I ever owned by myself, so it´s super special to me.
Not sure if I can wait for the shitty weather to start, but it will be awesome nevertheless.
I kinda hoped for a remake, tbh. But the remaster is fine, too. >>45686
I played it a few years ago again when it was on Steam for sale. And it was as awesome as the first playthrough on PSX.

any of you ever play the sims urbz? there isn't much to do in this game after a certain point, but I played it as a kid and I have sooo much nostalgia from it.
If anything if anon will like Awakening she should play FE Fates Birthright because of how similar it is since you can do some level grinding if needed and the story is just as straight forward. Conquest is great but it's more challenging.
Basically if you care about story a lot Fates isn't all that great, especially with the shitty Americanized localisation. But if she cares more about gameplay she may like Fates just as much as, or more than Awakening. Both are good and similar enough tbh. We'll just pretend Revelation and its shitty maps and underleveled characters doesn't exist.

Just finished Bully again but this time on the PS4. Still one of my favorite games of all time! Honestly, if you can help it get the Scholarship Edition. PS4 version is kinda crap with crunchy audio and some serious frame rate issues. Now There's been an influx of Bully 2 rumors i'm cautiously optimistic lol.
File: 1566925366715.gif (1.56 MB, 160x250, 225352524.gif)
I love Bully, def one of my faves as well. It's super comfy and somehow gets that mid-2000s USA vibe across really strongly. I might have to redownload and play it now lol.
I played through the game like 4 times, i have never actually beaten it. I don't even remember the furthest i got or what the story even was, and i lost the save (i was emulating that time.)
Its a problem i have with long jrpgs, i love them but always end up dropping them as soon as my attention goes somewhere else when i am in like the second half of the game.
I hope the remaster adds a skip button to summon animations. They were beautiful , yes, but its annoying after a while.
I played it so many times despite not being into Sims. In fact, I was thinking about it over the past few months and really want to make a simple game of my own that would be similar to it (decorating your own home, themed areas, reputation, etc.)
It was an easy-peasy game but it was something I played to relax. It was a comfy experience.
File: 1566988719697.jpg (199.13 KB, 890x606, bayonetta.jpg)
got bayonetta that i wanted to play for years in the playstore's summer sales for less than five euros but i havent got around to play it yet.i havent really spoilered myself on the plot and hopefully it's going to be decent enough despite it being over the top and ridiculously sexualised
anon, Bayonetta is incredible. 10/10 gameplay, so don't worry about the spoilers. It's crazy fun.
I finally started BotW. It's the perfect early morning game. Gameplay feels totally natural.
Is Bayonetta hard to play though? It seems like it relies heavily on button combos and I'm the worst at that. If I can win by butonmashing it's fine for me, but fighting-style button inputs are the worst.
The game seems fun and interesting and Bayonetta is super hot (don't judge me pls) but I don't want to buy it if I am unable to play.
Or, really, I am willing to train/learn and git gud finally. Does it have a proper learning curve or am I just trown into it with everything at once?Sorry I am a casual, I'm ok at aiming/precision and shit, but the more buttons I have the more I freak the fuck out.
Going from action beat em up to turn based is super stupid.
But whatever, I only played Kiwami because it was free on PS plus.

Yes that's him! Yakuza Online is supposed to tell some backstory with what happened before he got sent to jail. Not sure if this one will give you a summary of what was on Yakuza Online, probably so since you can't play the game overseas unless you know some Japanese.
Also, I'm glad Ichiban got a new look since the first time we were introduced to him.
File: 1567127882896.jpg (32.33 KB, 768x432, Yakuza-0-768x432.jpg)
Yakuza 0 was my first Yakuza game and i got massively addicted!! it's gonna be a wild ride, anon. Have fun
thank you! to be honest, yakuza 0 is the first game I got invested into after purchasing my ps4 and other games with it. I realized to sometimes stray away from the objectives and enjoy the feel of the game and its mini stories (tbh I only realized this like yesterday when school got harder and harder along with my extra curricular activities and instead going straight to the plot. I just walked around Karamucho fighting anyone for money and just invest whatever business is up for selling.)
I'm still afraid of the mini-games and fighting those hulk like asshole with millions of money with them because I'm still not used to the console. So yeah, I'm still new to console gaming or gaming general tbh. The only games I've spent were hack pokemon games you could download on the phone and other mobile games, even mobile moba)
Very funny. Not planning to micromanage the sex lives of a whole household but one or two features from WW look interesting. Any quality of life mods?
rn I’m browsing but the sheer amount of CC is overwhelming, it’s so not like modding Skyrim where everyone recommends the same several overhauls/tools. I’m sticking to new skins or ones to replace the original texture but I’ve already passed over like a dozen replacers that look more or less the same but with fancy names and I’m just ?????

Hey anons, going to invest in a Sky3DS+ cart in a few days. Know any reliable sources?
What are your personal Top 5 3DS titles?
I love Style Savvy, Animal Crossing, Yokai Watch, Pokemon, and Samurai Warriors.
Also, is it worth the time to region unlock my 3DS?
This is a thread for appreciating video games, not bitching about them.
Why do you even care about the recommendations if you're not logged in anyway. Just ignore them.
File: 1567586387467.jpg (3.32 MB, 1497x5600, 3DS recommandations.jpg)
I could recommend SMT games if you like RPGs, which are mostly remakes and two very good original games, Fire Emblem and Ace Attorney.
You said you like Pokemon, and SMT is sort of similar, it's a JRPG series you can "recruit" enemies in your party whenever you want and just customize your party in general. SMT games that are remakes are:>devil survivor overclocked>devil survivor 2 record breaker (both are tactical RPGs)>SMT strange journey redux>soul hackers (this one was a game from the 90s and it's a bit dated but still enjoyable, but I haven't finished it yet)>persona q and persona q 2, they're based on the Etrian Odyssey games
And then you have SMT4 and its sequel SMT4 Apocalypse, they're some of my favorite video games. If you're American SMT games tend to be on sales on the e-shop pretty often from what I've been told. If you're European like me don't even bother trying to buy physical copies.
About Fire Emblem, you have Awakening which is easy and a nice 1st game to get into the series. Then you have Fates which is divided in 3 routes you have to buy separately unless you somehow find the special edition of the game. Birthright plays like Awakening, Conquest is harder because the maps are different or are the same but with more difficult objectives and different playable characters and there are restrictions so you can't level grind, like the first games of the series. Then you have Revelation, which is DLC only, have gimmicky maps and have no balance whatsover, think of it as a "fanservice" golden route where nobody dies and everyone is happy. FE Echoes is a remake of FE2 and you'll either love it or dislike it. I didn't like it at all personally. If you want to play FE Fates I recommend you just play Birthright and Conquest, forget about Revelation unless you really want to play online (not worth it.) Don't listen to anyone bitching about FE Fates having a bad story because they'll pretend that Awakening, Echoes or even other games have a better story which is wrong (except maybe for the new Switch game.) Don't play FE for the story, play it for the gameplay.
As for Ace Attorney you should be able to get the whole series on the 3DS now iirc. It's very tory focused so play in that order>AA Phoenix Wright>AA Justice for All>AA Trials and Tribulation (they're in the same trilogy, and basically it's the main story written by Shu Takumi)>Apollo Justice>AA Dual Destinies>AA Spirit of Justice
Try to avoid spoilers as much as you can if possible. I have the first four games on the DS and only AA5 and AA6 on the 3DS. I think you can also get the trilogy on steam but I think it's more convenient to have everything on the same platform.
I haven't played Bravely Default or Bravely Second yet, but friends have and they enjoyed both a lot. Same thing for Radiant Historia. Other games I liked were shorter Nintendo games like Rhythm Heaven Megamix, Super Mario Land, New Super Mario Bros. 2, etc. I'm looking forward to playing Zelda games, Metroid 2, Luigi's Mansion 2 and Kid Icarus and then I'll be able to talk about these games too.

This reveal caught me off guard though
File: 1567695988584.jpg (22.38 KB, 366x286, shrooms.JPG)
One thing that I like to add: What the fuck are those giant mushrooms? I thought that I was way too tired to watch the direct in the middle of the night but checking it now again I really saw those gigantic shrooms. I like to now what's the deal is. I haven't played all AC games, so I wonder if they were already part of a game?
their fur looks so soft! <3
However, I'm worried about how they didn't focus at all on the characters. I hope the developers have spent enough time to develop proper friendship and flesh out the characters more.
File: 1568001427979.jpg (19.46 KB, 540x304, spyro.jpg)
I just got the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Best forty bucks I ever spent. I had the original three games like fifteen years ago and I managed to 100% the games, but I lost them.
Even if you know nothing about Spyro, these are fantastic games. The music and art is really great, too.
I'm still argueing with myself if I buy it or not. The teaser looked awesome and I remembered a lot of figures from the games. Purely nostalgia.
But I´m so unsure if it is worth 40 bucks when it is that similar to the original games.

I'm not worried about the battle system in the least because everyone who's played the demo was blown away by how great it is. They also mentioned how surprisingly good the dialogue sounds. The English voice work in this trailer sounded rough as hell, but I have faith that it'll sound better in-game. Overall, everything looks amazing. I don't even mind this new SOLDIER dude and those dumb ghosts lmao. I understand they need to pad it out so we can stay in Midgar longer. The original is one of my favorite games of all time, so I bought the 350-dollar 1st Class CE even though I've never been a preorderfag. I've waited so long for this.
Cloud's hair doesn't totally defy gravity and I love it.
The dialogs and character banter were amazing on XV. If it anywhere near as good that alone would be a selling point for this one. The big problem in Xv to me was the plot and the bland dungeons. This time we know thats covered because its FF7 we are talking about here.
Resident Evil 2 hyped me for remakes. It can really be amazing and i want this to meet everyone's expectations so maybe they do one of FFVI, that classic aesthetic with current gen polish would be so good.
It is crazy to remember that the original game came out so long ago, maybe because the characters are so present and remembered still to this day, FF7 became franchise of its own within the FF franchise.
It makes sense that the Square Enix is giving them new life so they can milk the crap out of the IP for more years to come like they have done all the 00s, but that also means they need to step up and make a really good game that meets the expectations. I think a remake was inevitable, i don't get very salty about them because worst case scenario the remake is not as good but we still have the original game with some added mainstream relevance, best case scenario the remake is great and worth it so any way is all good.
Yakuza 7 looks great. I can't wait to play all these minigames. It looks like they're packing a LOT into it compared to Yakuza 6, which was lacking hardcore. The turn-based gameplay looks pretty fun and it definitely shows the developers are having fun with it as well. Yakuza is finally fun again.>>49262
Fucking YES! My boyfriend showed me the first Gungrave and I got hooked. I can't believe how short the game was.>>49109
I think Reno looks hot now, in a I-used-to-be-a-Gackt-fan kind of way.

Has anyone else played Little Misfortune yet? It's great.
I liked Fran Bow, so I had high hopes for this, and it did not disappoint. I wasn't too into some of the gross-out humor, though and I wish there was more than one ending, and more stuff to play around with in general, considering all the choices. Plus, the fact that there seems to be no real way to "die", "get caught" or otherwise lose in this game, no matter what, kind of sucks the urgency out of the scary bits. Plus, I noticed at least one continuity error and a visual glitch in one part. It almost feels sort of unfinished, but otherwise? Lovely. I loved the overall message of hope, it was refreshing and very heartwarming.

There's a demo up so you can try it out.
It really seems just like Dark Souls with an anime coat of paint and some edgy story.
Demo’s console only, I’m PCfag. Upon watching some videos the feel is more like DmC more than anything.>>53069
Visually I’m getting the obvious JRPG vibe but besides the stamina bar they do have an analogue to Estus flasks.
I’m gonna wait until I can try it cracked.

I'm playing FE3H and after a few weeks not playing it whatsoever because I was too busy I reached the timeskip, and thank god the monastery section is less time-consuming now. It's still annoying though and while I'm doing the blue lions route, I want to go with the black eagles route next. Problem is, there are so many cutscenes, the support scenes are so long, the monastery part is long and repetitive and the first 11 chapters are the same no matter the route so I'm wondering if I'll get burned out. Has anyone here completed several routes in a row?
At least with Fates you could do whatever you wanted between two maps quickly and without restrictions like the action points, I wish it was a bit more like that in 3H.
File: 1570034589689.png (1.4 MB, 1038x1200, 89ED638B-0E16-4E1C-AD6E-214C30…)
I’m on my third play though now, and I hate how much of a time sink the stupid monastery is. I love FE and I’m having a lot of fun with the different classes and supports, but the pre-time skip section is just draining because there’s very little variation.
If you’re going to go Black Eagles next, make a separate save in the February month of the game because BE splits off to two separate post time skip stories so you don’t have to redo the first 11 months over.
I really feel like they could have just compressed the Monstary into the barracks like in PoR but made the whole explorable map because of Koei being involved
Are you talking about the part where you choose between the black eagles route and the church route?
If that's the case I'll do that, redoing the same 11 chapters with the exact same characters and cutscenes sounds like a pain in the ass.
>I really feel like they could have just compressed the Monstary into the barracks like in PoR
I'm a filthy casual who only played Awakening, Fates and (unfortunately) Echoes so far, not sure how it's like but I'm guessing it's probably more like the "my castle" feature in Fates? I don't think having such a huge explorable zone for the monastery was a good idea, doing everything I need to do each time takes at the very least an hour and more than half of that time is spent running back and forth to give items to the characters, it's boring. That's only impressive and fun the first few times you explore it. At least the maps are good and unlocking the paralogues isn't as annoying as in Awakening and Fates, especially in Conquest.

So what does everyone think of the Friends of Mineral Town remake, and how do you feel about the redesigns?
They added two new marriage candidates(bottom center of the pic) Brandon and Jennifer.
Personally I'm not too much a fan of some of the redesign choices, particularly Doc and Karen. Karen now looks like Freya from Grand Bazzar and with Doc, they somehow managed to make him look even MORE generic. Really unsure how to feel about Ricks's new hot redesign as well. Probably gonna go after Brandon, and maybe Cliff again for nostalgia.
By the way apparently they brought back the "best friend" system(from DS Cute), so you'll be able to marry any candidate regardless of your gender selection.
Who're you interested in?
File: 1570059709022.jpg (68.54 KB, 672x337, fomt secret marriage candidate…)
Also forgot, here are the redesigns of the secret marriage candidates.
I'm really not that hyped for the remake… it just feels so lazy. But, I mean, it's nothing new for them, they did plenty of remakes in the past. Still, I'd rather have a whole new game. MFoMT is just so nostalgic and cute to me, the design just screams early 2000's so I'm a little sceptical. Might just be me being some kind of lore-beard purity fag.
Also the redesigns are kinda boring. What happened to Cliff? And Won is way too kawiwi animu, wtf
I am very excited for the remake, although I was really hoping for a new Story of Seasons game for console. I loved the DS titles, but I am really longing for different graphics (like, actually seeing something, everything on the DS is so small lol) and the return of older gameplay mechanics like proper mines. However, I am also very ready for this nostalgia trip to Mineral Town and I like what I have seen so far, especially the video trailers. Without movement, the game looks a tad bit too much like a mobile title imho, but I think it’s bearable when playing. And nothing can be as ugly as the Harvest Moon games Natsume recently released.
The redesigns are okay. It would be nice if it would be a bit closer to the old designs, but I guess they changed their artists and this is more up to date. However, on that collage they all look kind of the same – bland and happy, which is the thing I disliked about the newer SoS installments. The characters just lack personality and are really generic. This shows in the redesigns. Popuri always was my wife in the games, but she can be really annoying; on her picture she just looks innocent and sweet. Same with Ann who looks less tomboyish and kind of boring. I understand your comment on Karen, but at least she has some kind of facial expression that goes beyond ":D".

i'm enjoying fire emblem: three houses a lot. i've played 200+ hours and i really wish i had people to gush to about it.
however i hate 'fanon' interpretations of certain characters.
>leonie is my best girl
>everyone hates her because she wants to 'fuck your dad'
>this is genuinely everyone's one complaint about her
>they obviously don't look at any of her other supports or play her paralogue
>meanwhile everyone loves cyril and thinks he's a cute uwu boi who gets a glo up
>he's far more guilty about having a one-sided admiration for an older character ie rhea but gets treated completely different
is it because leonie is a girl? she's so great and i don't mean to be a sperg about people disliking her but their reasons are legit just stupid.
at least the online stats show more people dislike cyril after getting to know him lol. maybe people are just more vocal about disliking leonie than him.

I always love the animal crossing series because its such a wonderful and comforting game. Whenever life is rough or things didnt go my way i usually turn on my 2dsxl and play it, the interaction between you and the villagers are always wholesome and funny, it made my day a bit brighter no matter how dark the skies are at the time and remind me that better days are coming.

I've been playing Fantasy Life for 3DS for a while now. It's so fun with how much you can do!
Yesterday, I spent a good 3 hours just doing carpentry, blacksmith, and tailoring shit.
I also love the humor in the story's writing, Butterfly is the best character.
I'm considering buying the DLC soon. I think I'm halfway done with the story.
I hope they make a sequel to the series for Switch or something. I know they have a mobile game, but it requires too much data and constant connection. I played it for a while and half of the time I get kicked off the server because my WiFi signal's too weak and probably the fact I'm not located near Japan.
You're gonna love it! It's like skyrim for kids, kek. On my first play-through I had 120 hours, iirc. I could've had even more, it's so fun.
Also the way you can customize your character is the cutest thing! And they have sooo many cute clothes!

Am I the only person who's not really that sympathetic to Edelgard? I'm playing her route rn, and the writers worked overtime to make Rhea look bad and to make Edelgard look good. Except I don't really see how Rhea is the bad guy for creating a world where dragons and humans could live peacefully. Rhea only fights in self-defense when others attack her. Rhea isn't responsible for humans creating a twisted aristocracy centered around crests. I don't want to fight Rhea.
Also, I think it's funny how Edelgard says she wants to create a world where crests don't matter, but doesn't hesitate to turn random citizens into demonic beasts in other routes. Not having Byleth around isn't a good enough reason for her actions, sorry. The only peasant she talks to is Dorothea, who praises her endlessly. Edelgard doesn't even think about offering public education to commoners UNLESS she marries Ferdinand. And her idea of a meritocracy is giving her friends from high school the best governmental positions. Ferdinand and Bernadetta still get to keep their land and titles.
And I've heard Edelgard doesn't even fight TWSID, so what's the point?
I'm overthinking this. But I just don't understand why Edelgard is so popular. People act like she's so revolutionary, like she totally destroys the status quo… but she doesn't. Nothing changes.
I wanna buy one too I have the money.
Good luck with buying it
No, I feel the exact same way.
I feel like a huge majority of the fandom complains about how Edelgard doesn't deserve all the "hate" she gets but I've literally never seen any of this so-called hate, just people defending her.
Also see a lot of people saying that if Edelgard was male people would be more sympathetic to her (his?) character, but honestly I disagree. I've seen way more people criticizing Dimitri over Edelgard. I'm all for calling gamer scrotes out but nobody's attacking her for being female, they're all defending her cause she's a cute waifu, like come on.
I think she's an interesting character but you're right, she's not revolutionary at all and basically nothing changes in her route in the end, all she did was fuck shit up and cause needless death. IMO she's hugely overrated by the fandom. The other two house leaders have more compelling stories.
Totally agree with you anon. One of the criticisms people like to put against Rhea is that "she executed people!!" Yeah those who tried to kill her like… she's pretty insane, but the only war she ever waged was against the ONE (not even an entire country, just one guy) who had killed her mother, sounds pretty fair to me tbh.
BE just feels incomplete to me? Edelgard was allied with twsitd and Hubert aids them in that one paralogue yet they just kinda forgot about them? BE even has less chapters than the other routes so I don't understand why they couldn't do like they did for GD. It says they beat twsits (seriously fuck whoever decided to give them such a long name) in one of the endings though, maybe the hubert/edelgard one.
Has anybody picked up Switcher yet?
I'm surprised they ported it to a console mainly directed at children and younger teens. I was curious if they censored the game at all, I remember there being a few sex scenes where you'd see a nipple or two. Not a big deal, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't taken out. I don't know how Nintendo still is with adult stuff like that, even for third party games. Also the physical release case looks neat, it comes with stickers and a map.>>58287
Hopefully by the end of next year they'll be as cheap as Switch Lites are now and maybe then Switch Lites are going to be in the $150-175 range. I heard they're thinking about coming out with a "Pro" version of the Switch so hopefully that'll help with cheapening of the prices!
Refurbished/used consoles aren't a bad option either. I bought my 3DS and Vita used and the only issues I had to deal with were a dirty battery for the 3DS (which was easy to clean up, I just needed to dab a little alcohol on a cotton swab and rub the connector for a few seconds) and the Vita being a little scratched up on the back.
Good luck on the search anon!

More of a rant, and it's about a visual novel but I need to get this off my chest
>binge playing a BL visual novel I actually bought
>time goes fast and the game is short so I'm about to get to one of the endings
>game won't even load anymore
>trying everything to make it work again, worried that something happened to my laptop
>mfw just found out something randomly happened to one of my save files, not even sure what exactly, and I had to delete them all
>now everything works again perfectly fine but I've lost a bit more than 10 hours of playthrough/one almost entire route
I'm so frustrated I'm not sure I'll play it again before a long time. I'm glad I only play actual games on consoles and handhelds jfc.
It's a VN, just hold ctl or whatever skip option till you get back to where you were.
Shouldn't take too long.
Dunno if you could handle weeb stuff, but 100% Orange Juice is a pretty comfy laid-back game. It's a board + card collecting game where the objective is to collect as many stars or kill as many enemies as possible. There are a bunch of characters that have their own special abilities and unique ways to play which really changes up the game every time. Online is pretty active so you can always find 2 other people to join, and the devs are constantly updating and adding new things.
Unfortunately you just missed it going on sale but it's still pretty cheap anyway. There's DLC to add more characters, but there are 15 in the base game (most of them have to be unlocked though). It's a quite fun casual game to play and sometimes can be pretty funny watching people get screwed over due to bad dice rolls, but there's still strategy involved based on how you decide to play and use your cards.

i don't even fortnite but i hate this skin.
i know im late but jeezus ive had the game since release and i fucking love it so much. not even a weeb but im a whore for rng luck. its so good.
just recently picked up forager for what i thought was going to be a simple idle clicker thing for down time, and it turned out to be some really neat automation sim that took what i initially thought stardew could have done for me and made it happen. im also a huge sucker for loot collecting and bashing mobs. in stardew i would always get too attached to the mines and never really found enjoyment in just farming.
any other anons really into rng/roguelikes? those are really the only games i play anymore, especially if they have deck building shoved into it. risk of rain will always be my favorite though..
When i saw this skin at first i thought it was a yandere simulator skin. yansim is popular with underage kids too so i definitely i made the connection on a whim>>60604
It looks like the same exact game but with a PvE mode… I don't even understand the point of it. Will they release actual lore this time?

I got 3H for my birthday 3 months ago and honestly I haven't touched it much. I'm not sure I'm a huge fan on the teaching or freetime aspect, probably because it confuses me and has been the reason I've been avoiding the game all together.>>61715
I've been watching my boyfriend play it, it looks super good! Bit of a mindfuck and lots of metaphors, also a little extra at times but I love it and that's what makes it great imo. The player made stuff also makes the game.

I’m really apathetic of P5S and Royale, but the new outfits in the former are cute.>>62215

Hope you enjoy it!
I've seen/heard bits and pieces, spoiler ahead.So BBs are fetuses removed from brain dead women who apparently are also used to "telepathically breastfeed" them, from what I gather? Maybe it's just because I live in a country where brain dead women have been kept on life support because they were pregnant when they died (women in general are used as vessels) and I'm really sensitive to this topic…but the fact that this is being used as some edgy subplot in a fucking video game is really depressing me. Like this is something that actually happens irl.
I'm probably speaking too soon and maybe all of this will be explained but Kojima doesn't really have a great track record for how he treats women in his games so I'm not very hopeful. Please someone tell me that this is addressed and it's not made to be some kind of sexy fantasy for basement dwellers.
If that spoiler is legit, that makes me furious. After all the bullshit in MGSV where he attempted to explain Quiet's character design, i really felt pissed off.
If that's the case, then i honestly have lost the last shred of respect i have for Kojima. Sadly, all of his gross fanboys will praise him like a God
>>62540>and I'm really sensitive to this topic…but the fact that this is being used as some edgy subplot in a fucking video game is really depressing me. Like this is something that actually happens irl.
The fact that it happens irl is what makes me feel like Kojima is even more of a hack. He really has no respect for women if he thinks this is okay. this is what he eluded to for three (?) years??
he honestly lost his touch after MGS3. I'm sick of women being used as plot devices for edgelord gamers and shitty writers
god, i'm so
bad at rhythm games, karaoke and disco are very fun but i feel like a brain dead idiot kek. though in my defence, my controller is like a fake ps2 one so its kinda spongey and stuff.
and I just got to majima!! now i'm not sure which one is my main girl , kiryu or him haha

Majimas introduction was lovely, probably one of my favourites in any video game. And god, his karaoke.. Hng. Hes so good..
I don’t really have a favourite between the two since I love them both equally, and I think the game did a good job at separating their arcs in parts that wont make you miss the other character while playing (for the most part).
Let me know when you meet and what you think of the short haired girl from the opening cinematic!
Yakuza 7 demo is out on Japanese PSN. I haven't played it yet, but it's currently downloading onto my PS4. Definitely excited to try out the turn based combat and see how it holds up.>>62556>Let me know when you meet and what you think of the short haired girl from the opening cinematic!
NTA but I LOVE HER and want to protect her. I have a lot of similarities to this character so I feel more of a connection, but she's absolutely one of my all time favorite video game characters.

ok, i´m gonna say it, Kojima is a terrible writer, he had some clever ideas that can only really work in the realm of vidya but as far as any other standards go he would be considered to be pretty dogshit, like third rate low budget horror movie level, he would not be allowed to exist as a creator of renown anywhere else except on videogames, specially with how much he rips off other authors, ripping off something from a movie and including it in a videogame is easier to pass than a movie ripping off another movie .
Even now that videogames are billion dollar enterprises the writing is still at a low bar, lower even than mainstream american movies. I feel not just Kojima but a lot of videogame personalities are really bloated and way above their heads.
it's not really what got him famous and renowned though. any article and video done on him mentions the revamping of the stealth genre instead of his writing lol
i don't really know anyone who expects good writing from him anyways but maybe i'm not in the right(or wrong) circles for this. i expected corny writing and cheesy dialogue but with wacky concepts from his games and that's usually what i get so i'm never disappointed

was forced to take a week's break as my shitty fake ps2 controller decided to break kek, but have spend most of today fishing (not as good as ac:nl but that's expected) and i finally got to the part where we meet the girl and i was left on cliffhanger whether majima would kill her or not but surely not right?? right? like rn she's bit of damsel in distress but i want to know the backstory! also it's 4.30 and i should go to sleep
ahh why is this game so gripping lol.
yes, the voices, minigames and random side-quests are all very good! i get distracted so super easily. pretty sure i spent an hour just playing blackjack lol, I don't even particularly care for card games? not complaining tho, makes the game seem fuller?

I recently bought witcher 3 and I'm in love with the game, even if it is kind of buggy. It's definitely fitting the BOTW sized hole that was left in my heart after i 100% that game and Ys 8, lol. Geralt is pretty good husbando material to be honest, i heard that he had more of an animalistic appearance in the previous games, which is interesting!

Anyone else here played Crystar? I finished it last night and I really liked the characters, story, music etc but the game itself was such a slog. I knew the game would be tedious since I checked out the reviews but I thought I would be able to tolerate it since I got through Drakengard 3, but man it was far worse than I expected. I still kinda like the game overall but I wish I didn't pay full price for it
File: 1574720022290.gif (4.72 MB, 550x640, yakuza.gif)
Majima is ultimate yakuza husbando, you can't change my mind.
I need to go back and finish the game but the main story just isn't that interesting to me? It's like watching a really long action movie. The sidequests and minigames are amazing tho
Does anyone have recommendations for something like Horizon:Zero Dawn? Sci-fi/lore-heavy/not an fps? Alternatively, is Dragon Age worth getting into? Already played stuff like Skyrim, Witcher 3 etc
I really love Dragon Age, it has the best waifus out there tbh. Origins can be a bit tedious at times, 2's cast is amazing but the plot meh but Inquisition is great imo. Inquisition is easy to get into even if you haven't played the others.
Have you already played Morrowind? If not, I'd recommend that as well.
File: 1574725767515.png (1.36 MB, 811x746, geraalt.png)
I'm sure you'll love Witcher 3. Are you playing it on Switch or other?>>64324he is
but Kiryu is honestly so cute and endearing it's hard to play favourites..
Here are my recommendations, sorry if I trail off what you asked for: Nier Automata or Bayonetta, Fallout has a third person mode.. (1 and 2 are different to the later games but just as good) BOTW, >>64326
seconding Morrowind and Oblivion. Metal Gear Solid maybe? Deus Ex?
I've heard good things about it, if I can go into Inquisition without already knowing lore then I'll definitely check it out since not knowing where to start is what's been holding me back. Fav DA waifu?
I really should play Morrowind/Oblivion too. Was too young when they came out so just completely missed them.>>64332
Kiryu is pretty adorable too, I've just been totally neglecting his side of the game to play the cabaret minigame lmao>Nier Automata
Ahhhh I should've mentioned it in my first post, it's one of my favourite games. Played the first Nier straight after finishing it
I'm waiting until the new animal crossing comes out before getting a switch since they'll probably release a cute AC themed version for it, but planning to get BOTW once I do.
>Metal Gear Solid>Deus Ex
For some reason I've always just assumed these series would just be angsty male power fantasy stuff so I've never even given them a chance. If the spoilers in this thread about Death Stranding are true then I'll probably write that off as well bc…yikes.
Cautiously optimistic about Cyberpunk 2077 for now.
sorry for stupid long post, but thank you both so much for all the suggestions!!
nayrt but I've played Deus ex HR and MD a bunch of times it's SO good, transhumanism is my thing so obviously I'm in love with the setting, chara design etc. I never felt like it was a male power fantasy. I actually love the main character, I think his story is really interesting. Great husbando.
If you like stealth games then absolutely play Deus ex.
I know you said no FPS but I will also rec dishonored every chance I get

I've seen a lot of anons talking about how much they love Leon. Should I buy RE2 even though I've never played a horror game before?
Dishonored isn't really FPS, it's also a stealth action.
Dues Ex is cool. Play the original game too.
I recommend all the games, depending on your ability to play older games that is.. IIRC, the first game revolves around the short stories, the second around politics, and the third around Geralts life.
I also recommend the books if you’re interested, Geralt and co. are portrayed rather differently compared to the third game but honestly they’re great!

Yeah, the outfit looks kinda uninspired. They put the original one in the preorder version on purpose so that more people would buy it, kek.
Face in the bottom middle looked pretty bad, but it's probably because they were trying to imitate her surprised look from a scene in the original game and it didn't go too well. Apparently the models are only there for face scanning, they don't really act the scenes. So they shoot maybe some basic expressions and the rest are worked on later artificially, that's why some expressions might look weird.

If you haven’t played it I wholeheartedly recommend it, at least watch it on Yotube since its not that long.>>68203
I feel you.. what has helped me was to stream the game for friends or get into it enough that i would need to finish the game to avoid getting spoiled. I love crossing out finished games on my backlist so I have a listography, narrowing down the games helps a lot. Not much can fight the inability to game while depressed though, good luck <3
>>68316>what has helped me was to stream the game for friends
That sounds really fun. I wish I could do that but I play on handheld consoles like the 3DS or the PSVita and I would need some equipment to be able to do it.
>I love crossing out finished games on my backlist so I have a listography
Interesting, I personally use https://howlongtobeat.com/
so I can make several lists and see how long a game is. Since I have so many JRPGs it's useful since some of them are longer than others.

I know right, jesus. I got it free from this months PSPlus games, can't even get myself to play multiplayer because every time I open the game I just want to replay the campaign lol
Once I hit vet levels I quit. From a single player game standpoint the story is hit or miss. (Wrothgar was amazing, Morrowind was okay). From an MMO standpoint it's spammy animation cancelling garbage and clunky as hell. And it's got a real predatory model when it comes to crown crates and other fun cosmetic stuff. Artificial time gated scarcity sucks.
I'm WoW trash though and prefer that endgame progression / challenge loop and have never been a fan of action RPGs so take that with a grain of salt.
I picked it up during a sale but I've honestly been so lost on where I should head and how to increase my damage.

I beat the Azure Moon route a few months ago in FE3H and now I'm right in the middle of the Crimson Flower route and oh god, this game is such a drag. Why the fuck did the developers think making you redo the beginning of the game 3/4 times to unlock all the endings was a good idea? Only a few cutscenes and dialogues are different and this shit lasts like 11 chapters.
Not really, the game is weird in that the route split happens at the very beginning (as soon as the first chapter iirc?) where you have to choose your house/students, but you only really start having different chapters and stories after the 12th or 13th chapter when you compare all the routes.
The exception is between the Crimson Flower and Silver Snow routes where the route split happens right before the 12th chapter so I WILL use the save function here. Fates was better designed, you only had 5 short chapters to complete before the route split, you can skip them once you complete your first run anyway and the chapters between all the versions were way more different.
I've always though it looked interesting, but I'd probably be terrible at it. And Future is only for the orig Xbox.
I've just been playing the Holiday event on Destiny and I can't believe I already have 20+ hours on Death Stranding and am only on chapter 3.

Don't worry about it, I managed to stay her ally after the timeskip. I kept the save file from right before I have to choose between Edelgard and Rhea so I won't have to redo the pre timeskip part of the game. Not sure I'll be able to do the VW route since I'm only borrowing my sister's Switch and I'll probably move out soon.
I liked Edelgard a lot in AM as a villain and even in general, she was pretty much a better Walhart since she's important from the beginning of the story. But I already have a feeling her own route is trying to push her as a kawaii waifu who did nothing wrong because she loves her sensei uwu after the timeskip.

That's how I felt like, too. Her motives for everything in CF seemed kind of inconsistent to me, and she and Hubert say a lot of things, but then do the exact opposite. I'm also getting tired of everyone on twitter being like "she'd be the perfect communist queen, if you just ignore her personality, her actions, and her reasons for ruling." Edelgard fans seem to be incapable of looking at her flaws, they really love to whitewash her. She's way more interesting as a villain, rather than how she acts in CF… I don't think she's cute just because she's scared of rats, sorry.
At least Rhea and Dimitri fans will admit that their faves did a lot of things wrong.

To me it seems like her route was developed at the last minute because IS was too ambitious (again, see what happened to Fates) and wanted a villain route because characters like Rudolph, Arvis or Walhart were popular, BUT they wanted a plot twist à la MGS2 were the heavily marketed character and poster boy/girl of the game is actually not the protagonist (and the suspicious JRPG church and pope aren't the actual villains) BUT the investors told them to hurry up and release the game asap while forcing them to make Edelgard more marketable for Japanese normies and waifufags so she can't be too much of a ruthless misguided villain.
Actually I say that but I've been told that VW and SS are pretty much copy-pasted and that it's more likely that VW was based off SS with only one more chapter and a different last chapter. I really wonder how the game was developed now. We will probably never know, since to this day we don't know exactly how FE Fates was developed and why the story had so much potential and was so shit (an that's not even taking the terrible localization into account)

I found the washing cloth and tote bag for my country but I can't buy it (yet)? I def want to score SOMETHING from it lol
I don't have a switch so I just preordered the bundle that comes with the pin badges, tote and nondescript case from the nintendo uk store. it's a lot of money but I know I'll be happy once the game is released. it was only £5 more for the bundle with all the goodies compared to buying a switch and the game separately too.
I can't wait to play!
Sucks for me because I am totally over Final Fantasy now especially 7. And I've still got a grudge against Square Enix for putting Deus Ex on hiatus for a shitty Avengers cash in.
Guess now I have to preorder Doom Eternal.
I'm interested to see the changes they make. I don't really get your criticism. Every remake targets nostalgia fags and newcomers. FFVII sold very well, so it'd be stupid not to put out a remake.
What RPG would you want remade instead?

I need to sperg about my man Goro Majima for a second. I fucking hate a majority of the fans and even the localization team for not taking him seriously. They all just portray him as some ex dee totally random "trash goblin". Like… Have you actually played the game? Everything he does, is for a reason, no matter how random it may seem. His whole fucking personality is an act for his protection, down to his Osaka accent and hair, so people from his past wouldn't recognize him. He's a man of many masks, which is why I think his Hanya tattoo is perfect. The character designers knew exactly what they were doing.
Also, I absolutely HATE Goromi fans. I can't believe how obsessed they are with this single sub story scenario to the point where they're making zines and seething at Sega for referring to Goromi still as a man.
I cherish Majima so much, I wish the majority who like him would understand him better.
They can make literally anything else tbh. The reason i personally cant stand FF7 is because it has SO many side stories. It's probably the one FF game that has at least 4 side stories for no reason. Dirge of cerberus, Crisis Core (even though that one was okay) Advent children, etc etc… it's such a mess.
Squeenix is so lazy and does the same shit over and over. Like Nintendo with Smash bros. Also, they need to get rid of Nomura so they can actually have some fresh ideas and stop the same face syndrome.

Anons have you heard about/played Pathologic 2 ?? I just discovered it and I'm pretty sure I'll buy it soon but I wanted to have more opinions. It looks really unique and strange (love it) but I've heard it's super difficult. I like difficulty (hollow knight is my fav game) but in this case it's a RPG and I'm scared that it's just not going to be fun to play ? Especially with the time limit. So I guess my question would be, did you find it enjoyable and would you recommend it ??
Have fun, anon!
I'm fairly certain that FOMT will get a Europe release
I'm looking forward to that too!!

you will feel mostly clueless of what's going on because of all the steppe folklore words and stories they'll allude to a lot.
i paid full price for pathologic 2 and it's worth it.
the first one is really cheap if you wanna try it out first but it is way harder than the second one and way more arduous to play through.
all in all pathologic 2 is solid game.
also dont make the deal with the train car man.
it's not a spoiler but just dont.

I nearly forgot about this gem. I'm usually ALL about games that take themselves seriously and have dramatic plotlines, but it's nice to have fun with an over the top game.
There's something about older games that's so charming. I'm also looking to get into Saints Row, I heard a lot of good things about it, mainly the in-depth character customisation, which is a huge plus in my book.
If you like the building aspect of sims 4, planet zoo might be good for you. If you like the relationships aspect then stardew Valley might also be fun to play.
I got my pc when I was only into sims 4 too and then I branched out into different genres. Don't be afraid to try an action adventure game or something! You might be surprised at how much you enjoy it.

Has anyone played the Life is Strange franchise?
I feel like a lot of people shit on the games for being "sjw-pandering" but I genuinely enjoyed the first game, it had a goid story line and soundtrack.
The prequel was kinda shitty, I hated hoe Chloe was manipulated by Rachel Amber, and I feel like it left out many plotpoints from the previous game (like how Rachel and Frank had a thing going on) and it dragged on a bit.
Life is Strange 2 was honestly disappointing, the main character gave me the I'm-to-kewl-2-care vibe and the episodes didn't feel like they made a continuous story line, just random shit that happened to them. The only character development that was happening was Sean getting edgy and careless, and Daniel getting more annoying (albeit still a young child, but still).
I love LiS1, I have a lot of warm nostalgic feelings about it. I've been playing as the episodes would come out and I remember the agony over completing the ep and having to wait months for the next one, oof
. So much suspense. Honestly, LiS1 was an Experience for me.
I liked Before the Storm too, tbf I don't know why people are not that enthusiastic about it. In some ways it hit me more than first season. I like chaotic complex female characters though, Rachel wasn't annoying me. Chloe was very manipulative towards Max, too. Adds to the realism and complexity of relationships, maybe.
The second season though… I just don't care about the characters. Not enough to even play beyond ep2, I've been putting off finishing the game for quite a time now. It's not the matter of not relating because they're not white chicks… I don't know. It just doesn't have the same magic? Hard to describe.
I don't like LiS much anymore but I do look back very fondly on it. I was born and raised in Oregon and Arcadia Bay reminded me so much of my trips out to the coast as a child. Arcadia Bay is literally just Tillamook Bay. Plus I was seventeen, and an dorky hipster, and obsessed with Twin Peaks…it was literally made for me kek. Even then I thought it was cringey and at times poorly written but it was an experience nonetheless.>>73419>I've been playing as the episodes would come out and I remember the agony over completing the ep and having to wait months for the next one, oof.
this!! I didn't like the way the story turned out but imagining how it could
have gone as the episodes were still dropping was half the fun.

I just want to say that I truly loved Daniella. She was such a terrifying (though beautiful) character. It's a shame that now she would be headcannoned as trans with her unsetting look and a womb obsession (and TBH, she does give me uncomfortable tranny vibes which I hate because I used to enjoy her character so much! And now that feels a bit ruined).
Her theme was INSANE.>>74965

in the same vein,I really wish Rule of Rose(which is similar in a way as there's a female protag with a dog) got a remake with fixed game mechanics,since it was the biggest problem of the game which really ruined the experience.I haven't played it as it's one of the rarest games of PS2 because it was banned in a some countries,but I loved everything about it from the music and the atmosphere to the story and the characters and how they were all handled.Lots of thought was put in in and it's a shame it was rushed to the point the gameplay was so bad people were quitting it.It also got unfair flack for "lesbian" themes and abuse which were only subtle and handled pretty well imo.Stupid moral panic and shitty gameplay made this game obscure while it could be a horror classic like silent hill and I'm kinda salty more people dont know about it.
The chances of it being remade are slim as most people don't know it exists and atlus doesn't seem to care about remaking a game like this.It has a great story with sad themes and good twists.And for a 2006 game,the motion capture graphics looks pretty good even today compared to AAA full realistic games which look ugly and outdated
This game is fucking fantastic. One of my biggest regrets was finding s used copy at Gamestop for like 30 bucks but then selling it later on. Now it's way too expensive to buy. I loved everything about this game except the fighting but it could've been clever. I loved the weapons, the health items and costumes. I also loved the Brown mechanic. There was so much lore and so much to explore here. The characters are great and you feel like you're stepping into their world.
Maybe slight spoiler but I firmly believe some dev at red dead redemption was inspired by this game for one of the sidequests. The whole boy in the basement one.

I got super lucky and got my copy before the prices went crazy. It's such a good game and i'm so happy to see other anons who love it too!! I never understood the stupid ass ban. EU is a wild ass ride because their reasoning behind is actually retarded. It's a great, rare horror game with an all female cast and really interesting story/take on mental illness and trauma. It's one of my favorite games out there and i still replay it. I do wish the controls were better, but other than that, it's one of the best horror games ever made on the ps2.
You can tell people only watched the trailer and got outraged at the blood sucking scene (and thats the only explicit thing I can remember tbh) without actually playing the game.
It has a lot of fucked up themes and the setting makes them even worse but the it manages to present them in a really tasteful way(Clara, cloth on the ground representing the dead etc), also, the visual storytelling they have going on is godlike.
Oh, and have you guys tried emulating the game? Its easier than trying to find a copy imo

Hewie's theme was cute too>>75017
I think Rule of Rose would have been better as a movie or short series
I hope Outbreak gets a remake after RE3 is released. It'd just need voice chat and more scenarios
personally it's what I did.I didn't feel like going through the hustle of emulating it and dealing with the clunky controls.Watching an LP was fine for me
If you get to do it,then go one and watch videos from Rule of Rose Mysteries which analyse the game.It gets even more interesting
I wish the gameplay was a little better. I constantly got lost in a the samey corridors, but part of the issue was on me. The fight system was awful. I want to play again though… I don't like let's plays.
The RoR Mysteries blog was great too, it can probably be still accessed via wayback machine.
Does anyone know any other media wiyh similar mood/themes and focus on dark girlhood? Heavenly Creatures and Cracks are recommended (those are movies), but I need more games, manga, etc like this.
>>75090>I think Rule of Rose would have been better as a movie or short series
No, that would be horrible. The game had so many fun notes and side quests to do where you can piece together the mystery. Movies cant do it and a series would be awful because it's a game based on some scenes that do sexualize minors and that would be disgusting irl.
I would love for Outbreak to get a remake however!! It's a game that had such an interesting concept, but executed poorly. It would be interesting to do it with actual online multiplayer.

I keep telling myself I can just use my bf's switch, but goddammit that coral color calls to me.
Don't act like a dumbass consoomer.
If you don't need the console and can freely use your bf's, don't buy it. It's a huge waste of money due to a retarded reason.
Of course go for it if you can't use your bf's switch at any time and as much as you want.
I posted a graphic back when it was announced >>39790
and my personal intake on this. It really depends on what you are looking to, if you want to play your switch games on the go then I would go for the lite because it has a longer battery life and is more handy. The casual switch on the hand which I personally own, has more options but as I said, it depends on what you want. Read what suits your needs and then go for it.

I can't in good conscience recommend Destiny 2 rn, since it's on the last couple weeks of the current season and the New Light introduction they have for newbies is an irredeemable mess, but it's free to play, if you wanna give it a shot.
If none of these catch your interest, or you've played most of them, the PSN has a fuck-ton of other games to browse through, so there's plenty to choose from. Hope it helps, anon.

anons I played FE Awakening back when it came out and am currently halfway through Three Houses and really like them both. Which other Fire Emblem games should I play? The only other tactical rpgs I've played are Final Fantasy Tactics A2 (which I adore) and Phantom Brave, if that matters.
Try to play FE Fates if you liked Awakening in terms of gameplay. It's the same thing but better/more balanced. There are three versions, Conquest, Birthright and Revelation. Conquest and Birthright are the base game but they're sold separately and they have different playable characters and classes, as well as different chapters (unlike 3H where all the routes have almost all the same maps for a long time except maybe CF but it's the shortest route by far). Birthright plays exactly like Awakening but more balanced. Conquest is way harder because of restricted money and lack of level grinding maps but has really good maps. The story isn't all that great and some of the really interesting things were removed for the localized versions because the story wasn't family-friendly enough and some people will tell you it's shit but the characters are ok for the most part. Just make sure to unlock supports between all the siblings to learn more about them.
It's recommended you play Revelation last because it reveals a bunch of plot points that stay mysteries in both base game routes. Not only this is wrong and other less expensive and more fun DLCs reveal actual things, the maps are super gimmicky and boring. And there's the fact that you can use almost all the characters from both versions but they have shit stats and levels in the chapters where they show up so there's no point to it. The only good thing from this version is if you want to play online but it's too late for that now. So imo you shouldn't bother with Revelation at all.
FE Echoes plays very differently from the other 3DS games but I wouldn't recommend it. I personally hated it, the original game aged like milk and almost nothing was modernized in this remake. Don't listen to people telling you the game is good because the art and voice acting is great because they mean that only these things are good.
I'm playing FE Blazing Blade right now and I'm enjoying it but I'm only at the beginning of the game (just unlocked Eliwood), so I can't give you an opinion yet on the GBA games.

wow anon thank you for the detailed response! I'll look into Fates and probably try out a few ROMS of the older games.
Thanks for the recs! I’ve played all of the fallout games btw (I didn’t care for 4 after the first playthrough)
I have been intimidated by the dark souls series because all of the men I’ve ever hung out with have tried to like make it seem like I’ll be bad at it and won’t get it because I’m a girl. my ex told me to play it and he sat there over my shoulder trying to tell me what to do and how to fight the entire time. Very annoying. but I might have to give it a shot because I love the aesthetic of the games in general.
Also love the darksiders series. Def will check out some of the others u posted.

>>77419>Also love the darksiders series.
The soulsborne games aren't nearly as difficult as people like to make them out to be. Just like any game, they require familiarity with the controls, and while there is a bit of a learning curve for some encounters, don't let the prospect of difficulty or the words of a buncha pansy-ass dudes dissuade you. The games are beautiful, full of depth and, once you get a hang of what you're doing, incredibly fun. Cheers, anon!

I've done nothing except play it these last 5 days straight and now when I close my eyes all I see are Doom levels.
the DOOM series is honestly so good (apart from 3, which is a good game just not a good DOOM game)
SUPER excited for the 20th cause I'm gonna have one monitor with ACNH and the other with DOOM Eternal and have a good ole time
Guys can be very shitty about games but ngl I don’t think handholding you through a soulsgame is a guy-only thing, I think I fucked up and robbed my friend of her first run experience too because we decided to immediately co-op and I lead her hard through everything because I wanted to spare her all the frustrating shit I did on mine.>>77444
this is true. Souls is a bit annoying with how NPC quests work however, they’re convoluted and hard to keep a track of and imo you end up doing many things unknowingly. I take skyrim’s hand holding map markers over this.
also screw covid19 for delaying Elden Ring news
Oh yeah, jolly cooperation is some of the funnest times I've ever had in gaming (sunbro4lyf). It probably helps that the only direct forms of communication are gestures and every meeting is so fleeting you have to make it count. There's no time to bitch at your teammate when death is imminent.
I'm not fond of lorebeards and their fans who constantly parrot their glorified fanfiction, there's too many players who get sucked into watching YouTube videos to cram all that lore in and I think they're losing out on the mental exercise that comes with piecing together your own interpretation of the game on your own.

Nier:Replicant is getting a new version for PC and consoles
They're going to re-dub the whole game and shoehorn the seiyuu of 2Beta and 9S in.
They also announced a mobile game, don't have any hopes honestly because Sinoalice is shit and Drakengard 3 was the last game I liked.
