Anyone else playing Prey? It reminds me a bit of Half Life and I want to like it, but I find it boring! I'm not quite sure why but I've just finished going to my office and I'm still not hooked yet.

I recently bought a PS4 just to play RPGs. That's all I play, I kinda like losing myself in fantasy stories and handhelds just weren't doing it
I'll take recommendations too (pic half related)

I bouggt Witcher 3 without any idea what it's about needless to say that I'm in love now. Bought all the books as well as the old games and I'm so mad that I only got to know it in 2015. I'm a fucker for these kinds of games and Witcher is srsly as good as everyone says. And now that I read the books it's so cool to see the little details they but in every games.
I saw that today after my favourite Geralt Cosplayer mentioned it and I'm soo hyped about it.
I feel like Netflix is trying their best most of the times and since they will ask the author about stuff too I'm even more excited.
But idk how they are with CGI and stuff regarding the monsters I hope they won't look too fake.

Well they did a pretty good job in Stranger Things imo, what I'm curious about is what are they gonna adapt. Books or the video game?
Anyways anyone play Overwatch here, trying to play it on my shitty computer but I think I'm underperforming because of it and got stuck in bronze, feels bad man.
I started playing this recently too anon, the circlejerk over it is hilarious but it really is a fun game. I just wish the female characters weren't so vapid/half naked.
I thought Triss was bland as fuck and it was a weird choice that she could be paired with Geralt considering she says "Ciri is like a sister to me." They are completely different from one another.
The bloody baron questline was my fav.
Nah it does make sense if you read the books Triss always had a crush on Geralt which is kinda weird tho since Yennefer and her are like best friends so >>191016
You're right totally forgot about Stranger Things
And I think they'll go by the books since the authors is involved
Also always wanted to play Overwatch but shooters where never really my thing since they normally don't have any story to offer (also I suck lol)
How is Overwatch different from.all these other shooter games ?

Anyone here play FF14? I'm pretty excited for the new expansion, and I'm trying to finish my Astro relic right now.
I love the fact that Geralt isn't some poor young man that happens to save the world and all that, instead he's a trained professional and is doing his job. The choices are also what made me love the books and games - they aren't just black and white, all of them have more or less bad consequences.>>191011>>191014
Same. I also hope they stay true to the books and that there won't be (too much) fan service. I also hope they won't try to milk the franchise to death :/
The only game that I'm actually playing right now is Guild Wars 2 (would recommend) and I adore the game so much. I bought it two years ago, worried what it will be like since it had no trial period, but now it's basically my new "home". What I love the most is that you can't really "fall behind" others, even if you don't play for months. So I don't feel stressed out if I miss a day or two because of work.

>too depressed to focus enough to play anything
I just watch a lot of Let's Plays to get my fill of everything I'm missing. I watch a lot of Vinesauce stuff because I enjoy the nostalgic factor of revisiting older games and bootlegs.
I'm thinking of hooking up my old SNES and replaying all the games of my childhood. I'm also looking into buying a Dendy. Anyone else remember those?
Love that too about Geralt, also he is so awkward sometimes which brings a funny element into the whole thing. I think it can be really hard to do it without over doing it, thus ruining the whole thing.
The books and games captured this weird funny side of him quite well.
That's the main thing I'm worried about when it comes to the Netflix show. I feel like they can fuck Geralt (and with that the show) up if they can't capture this.
The Netflix produced shows I've seen so far are pretty good tho. But I think it would be their first show with a fantasy theme kinda ?
Anyways since there are soo many fans around I think (or hope lol) they will do their best because the pressure will be high

Yes, that too. I hope they don't make him "one -sided" so he ends up being just an ass through the series or just a badass etc.. There are quiet a few characters they can fuck up.
I also wonder how the public will handle it, since there is stuff like racism, sexism etc included. And the books and games aren't exactly popular with non-gamers, as far as I'm aware.
Oh, and apparently there's a movie in the making as well?

Currently playing Mass Effect 2 and this'll probably be an unpopular opinion, but I kinda like the first game better, gameplay-wise. Like, you had a map for pretty much everywhere, mods were a lot of fun to use and collect, the radar was permanently visible and there were a lot more talents/powers available. Not to mention the fact that you didn't need to conserve ammo lol. They also switched controls for the power wheels and aiming/fire which really confused me, but that will probably get better as I play.
Story telling, soundtrack/sound mixing, dialogue and graphics have definitely upgraded though and the SR2 is pretty neat…
I actually only discovered Mass Effect last year, so you can imagine all the stuff I was able to look up and spoil. I'm sad about that, but it's still been a really enjoyable experience so far. yes i vaguely know about the ending, but i honestly think that it isn't too bad. it feels realistic, as realistic as a video game can get lol, but i suppose people don't play games for realism
Even so, I guess I'll have to choose ME2 over ME1 simply because you can romance Garrus.
I've heard that Dragon Age is similar, so that series will be next, but there's so many games, I'm not sure where to start.
another unpopular opinion: MEA was actually playable and even enjoyable at times

I started playing OldSchool RuneScape a few months ago.
I'm an oldfag that's been around since the phat days so I'm no stranger to changes in game mechanics and graphics but holy fuck RS3 is literally unplayable for me. It's trying too hard to be some unholy matrimony of WoW and an uguu Korean MMO. I couldn't even get through the tutorial. Even the founders just up and left the company because it isn't the same anymore.
I like OSRS, it's a lot of fun to do all the old quests, and if you compare some really old ones (Hazeel Cult, Clock Tower, Temple of Ikov, usually around the Ardougne area) to the newer ones with updated game mechanics and graphics it's really nice to see how the game's been progressing over the years, back when quests weren't written by idiots and new content wasn't just endless QoL updates. I'm kind of warming up to Zeah now but it feels so lazy, very little content stretched as far apart as possible to make the area look bigger.
I just wish they had more quests and lore, and that the place wasn't overrun with retarded little kiddies. I also miss the days before the GE, though I understand the need for it.
Do you want 8 mill in osrs? I've been trying to get rid of it for a few years now and no one will take it off my hands for some reason.
I bought membership, farmed willow trees for 2 weeks straight, then decided I didn't want to play anymore. I am smrt
File: 1495186665012.jpg (55.64 KB, 288x344, DAI.jpg)
Anyone else play this masterpiece?
I read a bunch of people online complaining about it because the quests are a little repetitive and while they're really not as good as origins, they're still fun.
It's a good game, I enjoyed it a lot and spent over 300 hours on it (and still didn't fully explore the desert areas because FUCK they're like a fucking maze)>>191070
Just play Dragon Age Origins. If you like it, play DA II (I didn't because the gameplay was too action-focused) then Inquisition.
I'm jealous that you can play ME, I used to watch my boyfriend play it because I can't into FPS for shit (was the same with half life) but we broke up before he could play ME3. Do you think you could stream it when you play? I'd like to watch a fellow farmer playing it. Better than some rando youtuber.
>CTRL+F harvest moon>no results>stardew valley>no results either>rune factory>nothing
What the fuck? Step up your game, anons.>>191056
Play farming simulators. They'll suck you in and you'll forget all about your sad life.
I heard a lot of good things about DAI and actually have the original game on Origin, I just have to download and install.
I actually haven't heard anything else about the story/gameplay/fights/quests etc., only about romancing…is the game really a "dating simulator" sort of or can you skip that part completely?
I should give it a try
You can skip it completely. Inquisition isn't even like origins, you can only romance one person. (On origins you could literally date everyone and there was even a bisexual elf who fucked you the mine you said "hello")
The gameplay is like an RPG, but you can choose between action and tactical modes, except for DA2 that afaik doesn't have a tactical mode.
The different races and classes are a lot of fun, pick a mage on DAO and get ready for a wild ride
Adding to this - On origins and inquisition, you can befriend people (though inquisition got rid of the gifting system, that was a lot of fun) but to romance them you need to choose romancey dialog options, which you can just not do.
The fights are fun, on tactical mode the game is paused and you choose actions for your party that they'll perform once you unpause it. You can select actions for them to perform automatically as well (such as "drink healing potion when health under 25%") and play it action mode.
The lore is pretty nice, as are the million side quests (that often add to the lore)
ya girl right here anon. i got stardew valley in a humble bundle but i've only played like two game days of it lol. just haven't had time because of college. favorite harvest moon/rune factory? mine's tree of tranquility even tho it's kinda trash and rune factory frontier.
i'm really upset i'm not very good at certain reactionary games :( my bf got further in bloodborne in one hour than i did in 10. i get scared/surprised easily and tend to spazz out. i'd like to join my friends in FPS like overwatch but i just can't control the gun and camera at the same time. i can hold my own in smash at least.
anyone been playing the new persona? i've been hearing good things about it but haven't gotten further than the first dungeon because again time

I'm only playing Japanese video games because it seems Western games are only on consoles I don't own and I can't play anything with my laptop. Right now I'm playing Fire Emblem Fates, I'm almost done with the Revelation DLC but I really don't like it as much as the Birthright and Conquest routes because of the maps. I have a bunch of games I never finished or never even played, it'll keep me busy during the summer holidays. I'll focus on Pokémon Sun next. Not directly related but goddamn, the FE fanbase is absolute shit. I never got to play the games before Awakening because I was young and couldn't buy the games I wanted and I didn't have a GBA at the time, not because I want to fuck Tharja or something.>>190978
Etrian Odyssey seems interesting, especially because it's cheap on the nintendo eshop, but at the same time I'm not sure I'll like it because I've had issues with Persona Q and I've been told it's basically Etrian Odyssay with Persona 3 and 4 characters.>>191015
I likes DR1 a lot even though I've seen a bunch of spoilers before playing it, but I'm halfway through the second game and I really don't like it as much, I'm not attached to the characters as much and the humor is a bit to over the top for me this time. I'm hesitating getting V3 later, for once I've never seen spoilers on this game.
Also:>I got p3p and I'm really enjoying it, but I hate all the level grinding it's so tedious.
You shouldn't need to level grind in this game, unless you're playing on hard or higher difficulty. You're probably doing something wrong.>>191030
Me too! Although I haven't played any of the older games, P2 Innocent Sin aside. I wish they announced a SMT1&2 remake for the 3DS instead of Deep Strange Journey, especially because I have Strange Journey but haven't played it yet.

Apparently DONTNOD is planning o making a LiS 2 soon, i am seriously excited to see where they'll go with it, it'd be interesting to change the time mechanics for another power and change the characters up a little.
The ending to the first, i think, really closed the story off Max rather well (eventhough it was a shit ending), so i'd hope to see new characters.>>191050
Oh man, same about Guild Wars 2. Started a week ago and i'm hooked. If you'd told me i'd be considering buying an expansion for a mmo i'd never had believed you, but it is seriously such an enjoyable online game. I am currently trying to find a guild because i am a ranger (not bearbow tho kek) and i read in the subreddit that i am doomed if i try to do anything with PUGs so r.i.p.
The community seems pretty great and the game system is very fair for all players with level scalling and not overly P2W. >>191095
P5 is absoultely amazing, but it really requieres a lot of time, i'm still in the futaba dungeon because i've not been able to play much recently.
It controls very smoothly, the music is absolutely fantastic and the characters are trope-y but loveable. The only thing that bothers me is morgana constant whining about going to sleep for the most trivial things i swear to god that fucking cat.>>191083
I liked it, mostly for the characters, didn't really like the gameplay too much tbh.
Can't wait to play the new one, if it's set in tevinter i hope it returns to a more darker style. Inquisition felt too "goody two shoes" for my taste. I just wanted to be a dictator blood mage that led the inquistion to be an evil force god damn it.
I also hope they make the worlds smaller, but more important to the story and learn from the many mistakes of MEA. also that they bring Zevran, Sten and Fenris back in actual cameos. Especially Zevran, waht they did to him on inquistion is inexcusable.
For Mass Effect, you could try setting it on narrative mode, it's very easy as a shooter in that difficulty (especially 2 and 3, 1 is just a little clunky). ME3 has a mode where the enemies are basically paper so you can get right through the story, but most of that story is told on never on sale DLCs which sucks ass.
I've heard people say that the first, maybe quarter or so of Andromeda were its rockiest parts, but that it gets a bit better afterwards? I'm still wondering if I should just bite the bullet and get it.
So, I've finally decided to sit down and play Fallout 3 after quite some time…and oof…don't hate me, but this shits kinda rough. The main quests aren't all that fun…like at all (except for maybe Tranquility Lane). Breaks my heart a bit, too since I remember FO3 being one of my favourite games at one point. It just feels like a whole lot of nothing. Big, expansive open area with piss all to do.
I got to play Harvest Moon MfoM on a friend's GBA when I was younger and that was what made me get a DS. I would say that Mineral Town is still my all-time favorite but then again I've only played DS Cute and SoS.
Should I get Stardew Valley? I don't really like the artwork so I would mod it but while I love farming sims I'll play for hours on end but when I take a break I avoid picking it back up because I've forgotten what I was doing.
would you recommend the older SMT games to someone who's more into the newer ones? i find the old-school rpg graphics really off-putting, but if the plot is decent then maybe i'll give it a go. is there anything in particular you like about the earlier smt titles compared to the newer ones, or is it just the general old rpg vibe that you prefer?>>191112
same on not having played strange journey and wanting SMT1/2 remakes. i've heard SJ isn't the greatest game, and i've been putting off playing it for years, but maybe the remake will make it a little bit better?
also, i'd recommend P2 Eternal Punishment if you've already played Innocent Sin. it's p good and i like most o the main characters in EP a lot more than the ones in IS and the storyline is slightly better imo>>191132
i'm so excited for LiS 2!!! agreed on the ending being shitty (although i liked that Chloe and Max got to have a proper kiss
and Nathan got a minor redemption arc, even if he was dead by the time it happened
lmao). definitely curious about how they'll change the mechanics up to keep the game exciting, but i'm more intrigued by them having an entirely new set of characters. obviously it makes sense, but i'm gonna really miss some of the old characters; I just hope they newer ones aren't as meme-y and cliche as some of the minor characters in the last game.
File: 1495210087344.gif (2.6 MB, 540x304, tumblr_optwiqunrP1ub7k6lo1_540…)
On my second playthrough but on hard this time, played in safe mode strictly for the story to get the true ending.
Makoto is best girl~
Heh, i was one of the few who prefred Max + Warren so i was more excited for theirs more than the chloe one, (i didn't particularly like chloe and max, felt like ever since chloe came back into max's life she fucked it up because of being overly selfish and childish, kinda felt the relationship would be a bad step for Max if chloe didn't learn how to deal with herself.)
Out of all of them Nathan was my favourite character and i would have loved a bigger expansion of his personality and backstory. It was very tragic how everyone around him used him and it absolutely destroyed him. I felt pity for him as soon as everything was unraveled. Finding out what his dad did or what a certain professor used him for, all the while he did it because he had no direction in life, just crushed me. I really would have hoped that maybe Max could've become closer to him, so he could have a friend who was not looking for anything other more than friendship with him, someone who he could rely on.
He is really a great character, not bad, not great, just fucked up because of his enviorment.
Would love to play a character like Nathan on the sequel.
Also the memes were a little on the face, the fat spanish "loser" dude with the outdated ragecomic t-shirt was a tad bit too much lol
I really want to play P2 Eternal Punishment because I liked how the main characters where introduced in Innocent Sin and I love Maya, but it's not available on the European PSN and I can't emulate anything on my laptop because it's a piece of junk that can barely make microsoft office work. I'll definitely try it one day though, I just don't know when.
As for Strange Journey, I think what some people found off-putting was that the press turn mechanism was replaced by something else that has to do with your party members' alignments to deal extra damage to your enemy, but I'm not sure anymore. I only played it for 2min to see if my cartridge worked so I can't say for sure if that's the case. I heard some of the final bosses are really tedious too but that might be people exaggerating how megaten is difficult in general, idk.
File: 1495214721595.png (1.11 MB, 1067x600, nioh-listing-thumb-01-ps4-us-0…)
Same here. First I didn't care for Chloe but in the end i hated her. How can one be so fucking annoying all the time thinking that everthing is about her.
To this day I don't understand why so many people ship them for the sake of having a lesbian couple, when Chloe is clearly fucking up everything>>191142
I loove Persona 5. I'm doing the same thing right now btw.
Also on my second play in hard. Excited to max out all confidants.
Chose Makoto in the first play but too be honest when Haru came I lost it. I love her English voice so much and all in all she is a cutie.
In general the English voice cast did an amazing job (except for pronouncing names but whatever)
Right now I'm turned the japanese voices on to compare it.
On another note;
Did anyone here play Nioh ? It reminds me a little bit of Witcher just from seeing pictures but I haven't actually played it. I don't want to bring my hopes up and pay for it when it actually sucks
Strange Journey is difficult for a JRPG but it's a lot like the old-school SMT games with upgrades that make it less frustrating, like having a base and dungeon maps. Some people were really put off by the first-person layout but every other game pre-IV is like that too (including Nocturne, it's available as a bonus when you beat the game).>>191140
I think you should try SJ or Nocturne, the stories aren't linear but I like how different their atmospheres are compared to other JRPGs. Instead of it being about camaraderie and adventure there's a feeling of the protaganist being trapped alone in these bizarre worlds where everyone has a hidden agenda. If you haven't played it yet Digital Devil Saga is also a good not really SMT but fairly similar game.
I haven't tried Soul Hackers yet but it doesn't seem like there's much talk about that one. Did anyone here play it?
File: 1495221280433.png (251.51 KB, 800x546, 54978225_p6.png)
I was playing Soul Hackers some months ago and while it's pretty fun overall, I haven't finished it yet because I got sick of enemies spamming mudola on the MC, I got busy with college and just bought FE Fates at the time too. I'll beat it soon I think, once I beat FE Fates Revelation.
The gameplay is fairly simple because there's no press turn but you have to be careful with your demons, they do what they want sometimes depending on their personalities so you either let them do what they want, give them instructions during battles and hope for the best, or you use items on them to change their personalities. The story is a bit over the top but that's part of the fun, I like it a lot. I'm expected Hitomi to be the boring female sidekick but I love her as much as I like Nemissa. You explore the dungeons in 1st person view and everything is pretty fast-paced, exploring dungeons legit made me dizzy sometimes. By the way, I've bee told that playing at the casino grants you a bunch of OP weapons but I'm so shit at the mini games that I never got any of these weapons. But maybe these advice could be useful to you if you decide to play it.
File: 1495232645125.jpg (83.27 KB, 640x641, Suikoden II cover (US).jpg)
Suikoden 1 & 2 are my favorite games of all time. If you like classic JRPGs play this series (you can stop at Suiko 3).
Anyone else enjoying Zelda BOTW? It's so huge. I'm 130 hours into it and I'm still discovering new areas. My only complaint is a lack of a real temple. The Shrines and the Divine Beasts are neat but a classic temple would have made this game perfect. Maybe with DLC.
File: 1495234532303.jpg (281.28 KB, 600x500, SMT-Strange-Journey-shin-megam…)
Seconding Nocturne. Once you get addicted to the gameplay, you'll want to come back and play it again or actually finish Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2.>>191142
I really need to pick this up again. I love Makoto so much. I made Ann my waifu, though… I haven't had time to properly finish the damn game unfortunately. >>191157
it's funny that you say this about the English voices because my friend loathes it. I think she may just be a huge fucking weeaboo tho lmao
Man I love the suggestions in this thread too. A Strange Journey remake would be amazing.
Random question… Does anyone here play fighting games?
I bought Andromeda. Beat it a few weeks ago. I don't plan on replaying it until DLCs and more patches come out though. It doesn't feel as replay-able to me as Dragon Age Inquisition.
Mass Effect is my absolute favorite series. I love Andromeda, but it needs some TLC before it can feel like a "complete" game.
I'm currently on my 3rd Dragon Age Inquisition playthrough and I love it just as much as the first two times. I'm skipping most of the fetch quests which makes the pacing better. I bought all the DLC as well so I'm excited to play those for the first time.

i like to call strange journey 'suicide journey' but if you want an intensely brutal and depressing game, it's wonderful. nocturne is HANDS DOWN my favorite though, but IV and apocalypse are both excellent. devil survivor is wonderful too, but i think 1 is better than 2.>>191229
THERE IS A STRANGE JOURNEY REMAKE COMING OUT! it's called deep strange journey. actual play isn't getting changed much, but upgraded cutscenes, a shitton of new demons, and some new storylines.
tl;dr nocturne is still my favorite overall tho and if you want to get into mainline SMT, it's the best place to start imo. it only gets harder from there.
sorry for sperg i just /really love SMT okay/
Thanks for the rec! And I wish I could stream, sadly I lack all the proper equipment.>>191133
It's okay to play, but for a Bioware game the writing is really unimpressive. It might be because it's only the first game, but Ryder and the squad are nowhere near as memorable as Shepard and co. Just wait until sales.>>191158
Y-yes! I miss the old Normandy music. The SR2 is too quiet. The old themes pop up here and there though, so that's nice.>>191157
Nioh reminds me a lot of Dark Souls, so if you like that franchise I'm guessing you'll enjoy Nioh.
I think Andromeda got way too much hate for its poor characterization but like I just played ME1 for the first time in ages and it feels so much like Andromeda story wise, clearly both the games were building up to bigger things and I think too many people compared MEA to the original trilogy as a whole and that's not really fair.
Personally I love Andromeda, it was amazingly fun, I'm on my third play-through but I'm waiting for the update where you can customize your character more before I play for a 4th time.
I really don't have anything else to do beside working so all I do is either playing video games or watching shows sounds suoer lonely I know but I got no friends in this town.
So I can beat a medium lenght game in a few days.
Once I move back to my hometown I won't have that kind of time because I actually have a social life over there kek
So around two weeks or longer
But yeah there will weeks when I barelly use my PS4 in my hown town so it always depends on the game too
I tend to play really long games and i am a bit of a completionist, so depending on the game… maybe around 60+ hours for rpgs and around 80+ hours for JRPGs.
I tend to play around 2-6 hours a day, unless i have to study, so it takes me a while to beat any game. Especially now that i am supposed to be a "responsable adult".
I don't know if it's because i am getting old but games also don't hold my focus as much anymore, i tend to get bored if i play more than a few hours, or get overwhelmed and stop playing if they are too long.
(>started playing witcher 3, 120 hours and still not out of skellige because completionist shit, never touched it again because i was burned out. >Started yakuza 5, 80+ hours, still on haruka arch, stopped playing because overwhelmed. >Persona 5, futaba dungo, got burned out and never touched it again eventhough i want to play it, but just can't find any kind of motivation to do so.
It's depressing because i wanna finish them since i love the games but it just feels like a chore and like i am wasting my time to do +100 hour games now for some reason)
I enjoyed BOTW a lot the first ~50 hours. I kinda grew more and more disappointed after that, because the game feels so empty and way too easy (the divine beasts especially). There's not much besides puzzles and while they're fun, the story and quests are so lacking. There's only a handful of quests that were satisfying/memorable/hard, all stables and villages pretty much have the same NPCs/meaningless quests, you're alone most of the time (as opposed to having midna or navi), etc. I'm really sad about it.
I wish the quests were more like other open worlds' (Witcher, DA, Bethesda etc), where you're more invested because of the story and stakes. Or even just more like previous zelda's quests. Now it's almost only "go get this / do this because you have to". It desperately needs an after-game too. But still totally worth playing. Hopefully the next one will be a real 10.
>>191332> Nioh reminds me a lot of Dark Souls, so if you like that franchise I'm guessing you'll enjoy Nioh.
Pls tell me you play dark souls, or anyone else for that matter. I would seriously like to have someone to coop with.
Btw, is there a lolcow steam group? Should I create one?
Liam's romance was SO dry. He's a qt and It was sweet but like, a lot didn't really happen and I was rlly disappointed by the end. I'm gonna try Peebee or Vetra.
And I agree about Jaal, he honestly looks like some weird alien penis.
I've only played Bloodborne, though I did grab Dark Souls after I played it. It's sitting around somewhere…
Anyways, anon is right about BB's play style. You've got to be quick and aggressive. But once you get the timing down for parries and visceral attacks you'll have a much easier time going through.
For the first boss are you talking about Gascoigne or Cleric Beast? Both can be parried, you just have to shoot them before they attack. Watch closely a few times for their attack pattern and you'll get it. Cleric Beast is also weak against fire so if you have fire paper or some molotovs you can use them. As a bonus, you can even summon Gascoigne to help you in the fight against Cleric Beast with an Old Hunter's Bell.
For the most part you can get through with good timing, knowing weaknesses of the mobs, and wearing the right gear. But you will die, a lot and often. It's just part of FromSoftware's thing, all their games are fucking hard. I think the visuals alone are worth it though.
I love rune factory and prefer it over Harvest Moon cause you can do so many things. Cooking, harvesting, crafting, flirting … and the bachelors are so handsome. I prefered the 3 over the 4th one though. >>191095
I feel you, my bf says I'm a good player on Overwatch, that I just started playing, but I know I'll never ever be anything above average at best. There's just way too many good players out there and it's not like you can slowly grind skills or stuff.
I'm more of a casual player and love all kinds of games, but competitive FPS are not my forte. >>191352
Me too … getting a job really killed my gaming hobbies. I'm often too tired and the games don't make me relax. I need to force myself to finish some in my library before buying new ones, or waiting til they're on sale.

I'm only going for Jaal because Bioware once again denied me my krogan romance. I was overall pretty disappointed that the only male alien option was a new race and nothing else.

Yeah Mei is great too shame her gun doesn't shoot out honey tho :(, I want the Tracer and Lucio the most this event. I didn't get the Cadet skin for Tracer last event and I at least want to get this one.
>>191814>one male alien option
gdi bioware when will you let me have my salarian husbando
There is a vetra romance, which is a female turian, but it's very short and with barely any content, like most romances on this game except for PB, Cora and Jaal.
It really sucks, i just want a krogan romance or a male quarian roamance (still salty me2 didn't give us the possibility).
Hopefully the DLC is still in motion and we get the so deserved Quarian romance from it or at least some meat (kek) from the rest of the romances.
File: 1495625350216.gif (1.34 MB, 800x533, i just really wanted to post t…)
Jaal's romance is like… the opposite of what I'd expect from a krogan romance. And damn, I didn't even realise that there was only one male alien option. At least ME2 had Garrus and Thane.

>>191052>Has anyone here played Nier? People keep telling me the games are good but the stories are a bit muddled.
I haven't played the original Nier, but Nier: Automata is one of the best games I've ever played. The story was the best part, though I admit it's very complex and if you aren't paying attention you might miss really important parts. I had to play through twice because I missed stuff.
File: 1496281103727.jpg (184.63 KB, 848x1200, 1490446107699.jpg)
Was considering buying a PS3 to play it, but I can't really justify it for one game. I'm hoping against hope that Square recognizes the success of Automata and ports it to PC.
I definitely get this, I really think for me its an attention span issue. The same reason I often have trouble sitting through an episode of anime even if I really love the show.
I feel especially guilty about FE:Fates because I bought all 3 paths (2 being DLC) and haven't beaten the Nohr route yet, or touched the 3rd one (forgot what it's even called…)
File: 1496970496316.png (45.29 KB, 174x256, NewHusbando.png)
I think it's depression for me, I haven't even played the game yet today, just slept on and off while Parks and Rec plays in the background.
I'll force myself to play tonight, if only to hear my new husbando's sweet voice encourage me to fight on.
Fire Emblem Awakening
Fire Emblem Fates
Kirby (any of them you can download)
The remakes of ocarina of time and majoras mask are pretty cool. If you have a new3ds definitely check out xenoblade chronicles, it is so damn good.
I would also recommend the entire ace attorney series, and the professor layton series as well.
The original ds had a ton of hidden gems you could also look into, as the 3ds can play ds games too. If you like visual novels Id recommend 999 and hotel dusk.
Haven't finished the third route either even though I love it.
For me it's being a perfectionist and trying to get everyone on A/S.
Kinda stopped having fun doing this bullshit. Should have played the story first and then trying to get everyone on A/S.
I wasn't that excited for the game because honestly, I didn't expect much. But I've played it and… it surprised me, it's really good I liked the similar, but slightly different vibe. Chloe's vibe. The William scenes were a punch right into the kokoro. Yes, >>204126
I kinda agree, at least about ChloexRachel. Their friendship was a bit rushed, they hung out two times and suddenly "there's something special" and shit. But it's only 3 eps, so I understand it.
I really love No below by Speedy Ortiz.
And the rpg game part rule

>>204087>blue hair says men shouldn't own guns, only women>waves a gun around like a retard, shoots herself>shoots dog when arguing with a guy over a B&E
I'm morbidly curious to see what they did this time.
I disliked Chloe too in the first game, but still played BtS because i love the franchise.
She is still very annoying in general and very similar to the first game in scripted sequences, but at least it's more manageable since you control her and can make her more "your style".
Honestly, i liked the first episode regardless of my opinion of Chloe, my only gripe with it is that everything felt very rushed, including the development with Rachel.My favorite part of the whole episode was playing DnD with the nerds, tbh.
I mean…she's still herself in the game but you can make her "nicer" since you control what she says.>>204151
Loved that part too, and the train scene, but still…
Can't really recommend anything but if you got the time look for indie games on Steam and Gog>>204242
So far it's only about them. Guess you could wait for all 3 episodes to be released or just torrent it and see how you like it

What are your favorite comfy games? I've been in a depressed mood lately so I've been playing the shit out of cute games like Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon.

I remember The Crooked Man and Ib were good.

Anyone else excited that they're releasing Okami for the PS4, PC and XBox?
god I am. I loved that game so damn much, I played it enough to finish it within 10 hours.
Everyday during the holidays I'll do a full run of it… I can't wait to relive my Okami days. I even went to the Capcom collab with Okami for the pins ha!!

Anyone playing Divinity Original Sin 2?
I've been seeing a lot of positive reviews on it but i'm not sure if i'll bite the bullet on buying it since I've never played any games of the franchise and i don't know what to expect.
Is it any fun playing it alone?
Is it more like Skyrim (open world, story all over the place, you do you) or like Dragon Age: Origins (semi open world, kinda-linear good story, side quests that do not detract from main story)?
File: 1506020562721.jpg (4.64 MB, 2300x1534, Okami.full.1148276.jpg)
I am SO excited for it. I never owned the game (a friend did and she gave it to me for a few weeks) I played it so manye times and I'm still shocked that it was never that popular.
I hope it will get more fans through the remake honestly it's one of the best games that I have ever played. The Art is so gorgeous and story wise it's really good too.
My father plays it, so I know some bits:
The maps are mostly like in DAO, but a bit big (from what I've seen) and the quest often tie into each other (like skyrim, I guess, eg. help person a in town a, later go to town b and person b happens to know a and offers you a quest/dialog etc). I guess it could be compared to DAO but it looks way more story and lore heavy, with a shit ton of details.
It's one of those "heavy" rpgs tbh, but I'd really recommend it if your into exploring and reading.>>205187
I think I actually read something about some company making a second game?
I actually played it on the dolphin simulator a few years ago, 100% worth the lag and struggle to make circles with a keyboard lol
D:OS is nothing like dragon age or skyrim. Combat is strategic and turn based and the enemies don't respawn. The game is split between acts and each act has a large map that you can explore however you want, unless higher lvl enemies kill you, although most times you can get around them if you're smart enough.
You can solve every quest in different ways and there are no quests like "help x npc" or "gather x ingredients". Some side quests are connected to the main quests and some aren't. So i guess depth-wise you could compare it more to the witcher 3. (but it's still much more complex because you have multiple, potentially custom characters and the witcher only has one)
Also, everything happens in text. There are no cinematics. Don't play it if you don't like reading.
Sorry if you already know all that, but since you only mentioned skyrim and dragon age instead of other rpgs with many more similarities i feel like you don't have a lot of experience in the genre.
Thank you guys!
Story heavy, lore heavy and very text heavy RPGs are some of my favorites so i think i will pick it up. Kinda assumed it would have MMO-ish quests thrown around a big empty map since it has the ability to play with people(afaik) and that's what scared me from picking it up.
>since you only mentioned skyrim and dragon age instead of other rpgs with many more similarities i feel like you don't have a lot of experience in the genre.
I do actually! it's my favorite genre. I just compared it to those because the screenshots i saw reminded me a lot of DA:O, and used Skyrim as an example because it has that kind of MMOish very detached quest feel to it which i don't particularly enjoy, so i knew if to stay clear of it kek.
oh, then the game is perfect for you! it has multiplayer but it doesn't make it MMO-like. the quests are very complex and the maps are full of details. this game is the furthest from MMO you can get, tbh. >>205274
i know that feel! i currently play as lohse and the red prince, together with two customs. my next run will be a full undead party with fane and two customs. after that i'll make a lone wolf run with sebille and ifan. don't really care about beast tho tbh. maybe i'll squeeze him in somewhere…
(i use the multiplayer trick to have more than 1 main character)

I bought Transistor two days ago as an app (bc it's cheaper and i have a shit-tier pc) and I didn't expect it to be so good.
Art, soundtrack, gameplay, plot; I really can't find anything bad about it. Okay well, it crashes all the time during saves, probably because it's a mobile port, but it still saves so I can go right back without losing much progress.
I went back and bought Bastion and even though it's quite charming, I still enjoy Transistor more. I'll probably pick up both soundtracks as well.
transistor's ending fucks me up so badly though, but that might be because i'm depressed
There are some amazing mobile games out there, even if some are just ports. They tend to be hard to find unless they get featured or if you're following the devs because they're pretty expensive as apps go. It's obviously better to buy the game on steam if it's available though, not just for performance reasons, but because devs are just more likely to update the 'main' version of the game than the mobile version.
Hello fellow oldfag!
Have you played the Trails in the Sky games? They remind me of nothing so much as the first two suikoden games.
Professor Layton series?
Ghost trick was fun too.
They both have puzzles to go through, Ghost tricks storyline is more mysterious than Professor Layton's though.
You might like Gabriel Knight:Sins of the Father for pc. It's a point and click mystery set in New Orleans.It was originally released in 1993, but there was a 3d remake made a couple years ago.
The 3d looks a little awkward at times, and some people say the voice acting was better in the original, but I didn't really notice. The puzzles are much more challenging than the ones in Life is Strange so you might need to use a walkthrough (or the in-game hint system if you play the remake).

Didn't know where else to post this:
Does anyone remember the very persistent rumour that Nintendogs could breed with each other?
There were tons of videos and posts out there with kids insisting their dogs could breed by following a list of random tips like only feeding them water and dry food. Some videos even showed very small puppies, supporting this rumor, but that was just Action Replay at work that enabled shrinking a dog's original size.
To this day, I wonder why so many 8 to 10-year-old kids all over the internet stubbornly upheld this rumor, hid the fact they used Action Replay to get abnormally small-sized puppies and pretended that breeding was a part of the game while telling everybody that Nintendo is lying to their players about it.
Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon the ds version (by nostalgia), and the other one (Rune Factory) also on DS.>>204251
Duuude IB was my jam back then. Mad Father was neat too but IB is my all time fave.
I played Pocket Mirror lately and loved it a lot too. The art,the aesthetic,…was super neat! They even have animated cutscenes!

Does anyone know any good mmorpg's I can play? Maybe something similar to old school Maplestory. I need something chill/comfy with a friendly community so I can get away from these lonely feels.
Agreed. I tried rerolling a monk since they have a reduced GCD with 3 stacks of their buff but I got burnt out before I hit a level where it began to matter. >>209861
Have you played another tab target MMO, like WoW or Aion? If so, it's not going to be a huge difference.
I wish there was a new MMO a la Mabinogi. Cute, comfy and sandbox-y.
Nexon has been developing Peria Chronicles for ages now and it's still not out.

It's my first and probably the only shooter I'll ever want to play.

uh just play mabi?
If you're a Nintendo slut like me I'd say yes, I love this thing.
I've got all the big names so I'll give a small review.
Zelda is super amazing and fun, however after about a week or two it starts to feel repetitive, but we'll see what the next few DLCs offer.
Splatoon 2 is fun as well, I'm not super big on team fighters but it's proved more entertaining and cute than expected.
I just got Mario Odessey and I'm completely obsessed I adore this game and everything about it.
While the games all play great, the eshop and menu design leave a lot to be desired. It's so minimalist it's almost annoying. Also the joy con are super tiny.
So if you're a die hard Nintendo fan I'd get one, otherwise I'd wait till they come out with more games.
I was actually referring to splatoon 2, I guess I should've been more specific. From what I heard the two games are pretty similar aside from a few new features, though.
If you ever get a switch I highly recommend it regardless!
Not them but I enjoyed it. Much better than what I was expecting. The original trailers was making me expect something slow paced that shits on the original game, but instead they did a decent job at capturing its spirit.
> I'm also looking for games along the line of Doom, if you got any.
Off the top of my head I would suggest (the original) Duke Nukem, Quake, Blood, Blood, F.E.A.R., Painkiller, Serious Sam.
File: 1509877602123.jpg (982.53 KB, 1600x900, IMG_9094.JPG)
So I sat down and actually took a gander at Layers of Fear since it really seemed like a visually interesting 'scary game'
I especially was into it because instead of having an Amnesia / Dead space approach with possible enemies and the threat of death, its got a very theatrical gameplay to it where you pick up clues and get tossed through a maze.
It basically nailed what Uncharted lacked when it comes to a 'movie' gameplay.
It gets you from a to b without making it obvious or restricting gameplay too much.
Im a sucker for the whole 'victorian villa' aesthetic and making it super artsy didnt help my plight, I was super into the constantly shifting halls and rooms.
My graphics settings were all high, runing the game as optimal as it could be (if anyone wants my advance settings just ask) it was a smooth playthrough,
I was griping about the control for sure though, its a VR compatible game so opening/closing drawers or winding up objects would at times be really fucking annoying since on a controller there isnt as much motion available than when you're moving a vr gamepad.
In the end i really enjoyed it and anyone who likes spooky games should deffo give it a look.
(Sorry for any misspelling I am alittle toked atm)

Unless you're set on a particular design of n3DS XL, you should probably get a regular n3DS or a 2DS XL instead. The n3DS XL is reaallllly big, it's kinda awkward. The size of the reg. n3DS is perfect imo. A lot bigger than the o3ds, but not too big.
The design is gorgeous too, and the plates are fucking beautiful. I have the plates in pic related, the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu ones, some boo ones that glow in the dark, the acnl ones, and a few others. I love them all so much, even if they are a bit expensive…
The 2DS XL is also really nice, I highly reccomend it if you don't really use the 3D and you're okay with the size (it's huge just like the 3DS XL)
I also reccomend that you homebrew your 3DS and dl usum for free when it comes out unless you just really want a physical copy (or you feel bad about not paying for it).
It did on my regular 3ds xl too, but it didn't on my n3ds unless I was on the 2v2 doubles.
Speaking of, I wish Guzma didn't constantly fuck me over in that. I still love him though, he's the best partner <3
Yeah I have an older 3DS xl and the battle scenes always lagged, I also experience lagging in other games like story of seasons.>>210930
I was planning on getting the n3DS xl because I always assumed the XL was better than the regular size in terms of graphics and processing. I really wish they had cute colors in the XL though, that's part of the reason I haven't gotten one yet.
the bigger screen really does make the pixelation worse, the image is simply stretched instead of more pixels being generated to make things more smooth looking
sorta wish i had bought a regular n3ds but i'm also a very visually picky person so
that being said, SuMo didn't lag for me at all on the n3ds xl
yea its pretty dark. but i enjoyed it. i went into it knowing that it was a bit twisted but was still surprised.
but for being a free game, kudos. ive played plenty of free vns and went away regretting the hour spent reading garbage.>>211063
i still do. it gets knocked because they arent 'real' games but sorry i dont feel the need to play with a bunch of salty bitches on pubg or csgo. i tend to play games because theyre fun.

MY GOD THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL!
I was told I was weird for playing "Old dad games", but it just feels so nice. Especially flight sims. I bought X-Plane 11 recently and it feels good but ATC is underwhelming. Talking with the tower is some of the best part.
I was thinking of posting a feel like this last night anon.
Competitive online gaming stresses me the fuck out and I don't play games to be angry and pissed off. Sim and world-building games are my favorite.
Last night I played Cities Skylines well until 4am like a loser.
I can't see the worth in competitive games, really. Which is sad because more and more of them keep getting extremely popular. >>211070>Last night I played Cities Skylines well until 4am like a loser.
I used to do the same thing with Simcity 4 back when I still had to wake up for school every morning.
I'm personally waiting for the official release but I'm excited!
It seems very watered down but hopefully it'll keep me satisfied until we get a mainline game on the switch.

Sounds kind of silly even if you don't care for them. Its a team working towards a specific goal, one that is constantly shifting at that. Even with open ended games such as Factorio which I love, people generally have some goals and maybe handicaps in mind.
Related to those who enjoy sim games, I suggest maybe looking at Elite Dangerous and becoming a space trucker.

I am playing through FFXV comrades and enjoying it quite a bit eventhough it feels pretty… simple.
I think the concept is kinda shit and the execution is supbar, it feels like a shitty MMO where you cant even play with the same players more than once (which kinda defeats the purpose imo) and it feels slightly like mobile game mechanics implemented on a PS game, but i am still enjoying it quite a bit and looking forward to what they will do with it.
I kinda hoped it would have a story or something rather than being an online arena but maybe it will come later idk
The character creator is so good and enjoyable, though.
Anyone else playing it?

I play it too and I enjoy it.but I hate myself for it because it's really bad actually.
Like there are so many bugs that makes the gameplay not enjoyable.
E.g the bug when no monsters spawn or the bug when the server is suddenly """down""" while for everyone else it works.
Idk I also think that they could have made it so much better bc the 10 years when Noctis is not there is a plot hole that should be filled.
It also feels weird tha everything is so light outside?? Despite it being super dark when you arrive 10 years later with Noctis.
But idk I feel like Final Fantasy 15 is a huge let down anyways.
I understand the first hype because no one knew how medicore it would be but now that everyone played it I really don't get how people can't see all the plot holes,bad story telling, the fact that missions are all the same etc.
Sorry for my rant lol.
I'm just so disappointed because I can see it's potential especially story wise so it kinda makes me mad that it's not as good as it could be especially after 10 years of working on it.
And the producers just try to but dlc content into it to make everyone forget that the main game sucks lol.

Im obsessed with Gravity Rush. I love the world, the movement system, and the main character.
Every spare moment of the day, I think about the lore, trying to come up with theories that answer unsolved questions.
I started learning how to the lucid dream because I want to fly around with those cloud cities with the characters.
I played the Vita game, then the PS4 game, and nothing else. I have no other games because I don't think anything can compare.
Everytime I think about how I can never get Kat's pre-order white costume (because I didn't know about the games then) I want to cry and scream. I would do so many terrible things for it, and even worse things for a garuantee that a 3rd game will be made. It kills me that the game sold dick and the online photo sharing and treasure hunting server will be shutting down this January after just one year.

Anyone else here have an xbone? I only got one because that's what the few friends I have play on, meanwhile it seems like literally everyone else in the world plays PS4 or pc.
Anyway I just beat Cuphead, got all 100% for achievements. Just started playing For Honor again since they added a bunch of stuff.
I don't want to sound like a /v/irgin, anon, but…>getting the only console that has literally no exclusives
I'm about to do some Necrozma shit, but the game has felt like a chore to play through for me personally, especially from sort of the second half on. When XY came out, I was spent the entire weekend of it's launch deep into the game, beat it, and everything felt great (even with midterms being around that time). I've had Ultra Sun since it came out and I still haven't beaten it yet, even with the extended Thanksgiving holiday weekend off from work because I just haven't been immersed with it. I don't like the change in format (Gyms>Island trials) and I guess I'm not big on plot-heavy Pokemon games? Because the ones that felt much more plot-centered to me when it came to the villainous groups (which are Gen 5 and Gen 7) have been my absolute least favorite to play. I always buy both versions, but for both of those generations I couldn't get through a second playthrough on my 'flex' version for both of those… and I didn't even bother to get White 2.
I would say that I'm finally growing out of Pokemon, but put me back into any Gen 1-4 or Gen 6 game and I can thoroughly enjoy them start to finish. I don't know. Maybe I'm just salty they didn't make a Pokemon Z and shoved the Zygarde stuff into SuMo.
(I'm sorry for the Pokemon rant. I just don't have at irl friends to compare thoughts to because they dropped the series at ~Gen 3. It's one of those series that I really and truly love, and it kills me when I can't get enjoyment out of an installment)

Personally disagree on some things, but I rlly see where you're coming from. I didn't like gen 6, especially not X and Y. 5, 4, and 2 were my favorites, B2W2 might be my fave games in the series (if not it's either DPP or HGSS), but Sun and Moon have a shittier plot and they spend waaaay too much time on it. I like the trials just as much as gyms and I think it would have been a lot of fun if it weren't for the garbage plot, the hand holding, the unskippable cutscenes every two fucking steps, etc.
Oh well. Hopefully the switch one will be good?

Lol, I first had this game on my gamecube and iirc I married Muffy bc she seemed nice and I had no idea wtf I was doing with the game.
Found out you could marry Lumina on the ps2 special edition version, and change your kid's gender to female.
I just feel a bit sorry for Muffy bc she liked my character and called him a "monster" when she found out I married someone else ;-; I've looked at game reviews and apparently she has man troubles for the rest of her life and is crazy envious for never getting married or having kids. I wish they wrote some of these characters a happier ending…
Not a problem! Everyone has the games they enjoy in the series. I'm a bit of a Francophile I guess, and loved the clothing choices for XY so that helped a lot in making it one of my favorites. I loved HGSS as well, but I loved GSC in general. I liked being able to go to both Johto and Kanto. When RS came out, I was confused as to why you couldn't go back to previous regions (lol) but still enjoyed it nonetheless.
I probably need to go back and play B2W2… I'm pretty sure I transferred my team over to X already so I could restart it and see if it is better another time around. I think one of the things I didn't like about the original BW was the fact you were stuck with just that generation of Pokemon, and not a lot of them really appealed to me at the time. I've grown to like a handful more of them now, so maybe it won't be so bad… but I remember there being a distinct lack of L=A button function for Gen 5 and I think that's what turned me off of it. It's such a small feature, but I've used it on everything since Ruby because I'm guilty of multitasking when playing… which brings me to another gripe with SM/USUM–when you turn that feature on, you can't use your R button to rotate you character when trying on clothes or to easily trigger
the Pokefinder. I legitimately thought I had broken my DS until I switched my settings to see if that was why I couldn't get it to work.
But I definitely agree on your Gen. 7 thoughts–it often felt like a 'baby's first Pokemon game' in its guidance. And god, the cut scenes. I went to Walmart before work to get a copy of Sun when it came out, and it took me almost 30 minutes (the time period I allotted myself so I could play it some/still get to work on time) to get my damn starter. That was a definite turn-off for me.

has anyone else played xenoblade chronicles? it's my favorite game ever and it seems really underrated/not very popular. xenoblade 2 comes out friday and i'm beside myself with excitement
It seems like… low tier popular now? Or at least people who know JRPGs are aware of it and its acclaim. Dunno about casual players.
Also I had that reverse cover as my wallpaper for WAY too long. The art design for XC was too good.>>213509
Same boat as you regarding buying a Switch. I also want Odyssey and Splatoon, then the future FE and SMT, but I was waiting for cheaper, refurbished Switches to go up on sale… But then I'm probably gonna have XC2's everything spoiled by the time that happens.
I love XCX. I think XC was the superior product, but the aliens, world, and humans-trying-to-survive-in-space aspect of XCX was more along my interests and they nailed it nearly perfectly.
Personally I enjoy streamers that don't fake reactions or overreact for the sake of entertaining an audience. Eg. Screaming bloody murder at a scary thing (Pewdiepie)
So I recommend Vinesauce. He's pretty chill unless annoyed to the point of profanity (Cuphead) and he doesn't play up his reactions for the $$$
He's also a pretty good voice actor when it comes to making up voices for characters – downside it can become annoying after a while.
Cool guy, been watching his streams for years and he's basically the only twitch streamer I watch now.
File: 1513631834621.jpg (180.21 KB, 875x420, gwent.jpg)
I just recently got into playing Gwent and I'm so hooked. I really liked the Witcher series and I enjoyed playing it in game as well.
If anyone's interested, Gwent is free-to-play. There are microtransactions but you don't really need to buy anything, you can easily upgrade and create cards on your own by grinding.>>215552
I just want to play Bloodborne on PC. I've been trying to justify the cost of buying a PS4 and a TV. There's only a PS3 emulator available, though they're doing a fantastic job.
But now since Shadow of Colossus remake will come out next year, maybe I should get myself a PS4. Why do I have to be so stingy…
Your husband is a really lucky guy. If he's a hard Dark Souls fan then he will be all over the moon when he gets the PS4 and Bloodborne.
I'll get myself a PS4 pro for my b-day in a few months. I guess I can treat myself once in a blue moon.
>your favorite games (old or new)
Ocarina of Time was the first game I ever finished and holds a special place in my heart. I’m a poorfag so most of my exposure to games is through my friends and their consoles, so I’ve played a lot of games but don’t get the chance to really sit through them often. I like stuff like Portal and Life is Strange, also Fallout 4 And Dying Light were super fun (I did get to at least watch the rest of DL to the end, was so good). On my iPhone I play Fallout Shelter, Oxenfree, Limbo and sometimes I’ll drop in on Line Play to check on my avatar. Other games I’ve played in the past and liked were Osu!, GTA5, and Minecraft. Fuck, I’ve played a lot of games, I just can’t recall any of them now that I want to list them of course.
>online or sp
Except for my Nintendo 3DSXL I don’t own a console, I have a laptop but I just got it and know fuck all about online gaming. When I was a preteen I spent all day on Runescape, then Gaia, then I took a hiatus from computers for about 5 years.
>what are you playing on pc/console/mobile
I mostly play Fallout Shelter and Oxenfree on my phone at work, but I want to get into something fun that I can play online at home and hopefully meet some cool people to play with. I’m sick of gaming solo but all my friends are console gamers and don’t give two fucks about app or online games.

Anyone else finished LiS Before the Storm? Did you like it?
Personally I didn't like how much the story was focused on Rachel rather than Chloe, and the final choice was way too easy compared to the first one's. Like, of course the right thing to do is to avoid telling R the truth.
Literally everyone, including Rachel's bio mom, thought it was the only good choice.
By telling her the truth you're only destroying her and her family, and given how little time she's got left it's not fair.
I finished it yesterday!
(sorry for the long spoiler)I'm always making unpopular choices (Bae over Bay) and I told her the truth. Personally, I value truth very much and would rather know it, even painful and destructive. That's what I told William, too. And James crossed a line, it wasn't just to protect Rachel imho, he acted out of grudge and possessivness, knew what a person Damon was and what could he do to Sera… No, in my opinion letting such a person play a perfect papa was fucked up. Rachel deserved to know.
I'm just sad though I didn't manage to have Sera appear in the beach scene.
Also, the Dark Room post-creds scene fucked me up, I actually cried lol.
Don't judge me. I'm very into those games, and after what we've been through with Rachel and Chloe, it's heartbreaking to realize what happened later… Everything became so much more real and painful.
Also, fuck Max Caufield, that little hipster bitch.

I'm also trying to brush up on my Blazblue and Puyo Puyo skills because con season starts again soon and I'll finally have people to play against. I'm pretty awful at all fighting games but my Puyo is decent.

Are there any other farmers that are fans of games like Clock Tower series, Haunting Ground, and Rule of Rose? I really like the real survival horror games and Remothered: Tormented Fathers is a decent attempt at bringing the genre back. There was something lacking in the game but overall I had fun with it.
Also, is anyone else really looking forward to the dark souls remastered?
File: 1522444873859.jpg (130.83 KB, 600x350, Haunting-Ground.jpg)
That's awesome! It's such an underrated genre. I wish they continued the Clock Tower series. Haunting Ground has aged pretty well. I remember the graphics being out of this world when it came out. It's a shame they didn't make a sequel, even a spiritual one would do.
Of course, I love the Silent Hill series, the SH2 is my favorite too out of the series.
Did you also play any of the Fatal Frame games? I'm thirsty for a good horror survival game so please list any that recently came out and that you liked.
To add From Soft, the team behind the Soulsborne games are apparently working on the sequel for Kuon which should also be a spooky survival horror so I'm looking forward to that. Otherwise, I really don't know any recent or upcoming games that would fit the criteria.
File: 1522445161071.jpg (195.83 KB, 1600x1200, dianaref1.jpg)
Rule of Rose is one of my favorite horror games ever. I absolutely loved the story and visuals of the game. The gameplay itself was clunky at times, but the puzzles were fun and i love that it was a 99% all female cast. Clock tower 1 and 3 are great too! (clock tower 2 is another story…)
I paid quite a bit of money to get my copy of Haunting Ground and I really hated how helpless the main protag was. The story was also really gross (i dont want to spoil it for anyone who wants to play.)
RoR deserved more love. Sad that it didn't get as much hype because of idiots in European countries thinking it somehow promoted pedophilia.
File: 1522447664419.jpg (134.41 KB, 640x346, ClubRoom.jpg)
Rule of Rose was indeed stunning when it came out. I remember being hyped for the game but I couldn't get it due to the issues you mentioned, that it was sexual in nature, spoiler alert: admittedly there are strong implications that Hoffman abused Clara and Diana
so I had to jailbreak my PS2 to play the pirated copy. I managed to buy all other games but I regret not having this one because it apparently had the music sheet.
RoR's OST is so well done. I still listen to it occasionally and I like to play some tracks on my piano. And it was also one of the rare games that made my heavily cry in the end.
True, the gameplay was clunky and really frustrating at time. Regardless, I've spent countless hours discussing the lore on certain sites before there were wikis.
Fuck, I just realized the game was released more than ten years ago.
And you're right regarding the gruesome story in Haunting Ground. Moreover, I disliked the oversexualized appearance and unrealistic physics with Fiona's boobs. What really got me was the setting of the Belli castle and the well-designed stalkers and Hewie ♥
There aren't that many survival games in the truest sense so I play what I can get. I mean, I do like Evil Within 1 & 2 and Resident Evil VII was all right, but despite being labeled survival horror they never gave me that feeling of absolute terror like the other ones did.>>238174> Fatal Frame 3 was the last great FF game
Agreed. Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water was utter garbage. I can't believe they stained the series with that one.
> I am definitely thirsty for another period piece horror game taking place in a lost village or something similar.
Me too, me too. Hopefully, Kuon's sequel should have a similar setting.
Nice to see fatal frame fans here. It's my most beloved series. >>238190
Definitely agree on this. It had potential but it didn't feel like fatal frame at all. It just felt stripped of everything that made fatal frame good and just focused on cute girls. Not to mention nintendo flubbed the release by making it digital only.
Has anyone played Mask of the lunar eclipse. It was good but the controls and over the shoulder camera angles took away from the scary factor for me.
I did like the rituals and lore though. I feel like this is where the series died. Fatal frame had a formula that worked for it and kept getting better from 1 to 3 but they changed it too much.
Honestly, I really wish horror would go back to focusing more on atmosphere like the ps1 to 2 era. I'm talking fixed camera angles, atmospheric music and actually planned out backdrops. Now most horror is just dark/gorey without any heart in it. Also tired of being thrown into fps style gameplay.
I haven't played anything past Fatal Frame 3 aside from Spirit Camera, so I don't really know how the others are. But Spirit Camera, while in the Fatal Frame family, was so bad and it was only about a 3 hour game. It didn't have the charms of the first three and the AR system could have been used so much better. I'm so glad that there are other Fatal Frame fans here, though.
I haven't gotten around to playing Haunting Ground or Rule of Rose, though. I do have the DreadOut games, which are trying to be like Fatal Frame and Siren, but I heard they weren't so good and the VA work is awful. I'm honestly more of a horror VN kinda person, though, since I played the hell out of Sound of Drop and DDLC and I'm playing through Higurashi.
I think it's worth it.
I bought my bf the pro for his birthday and it is a very nice console.
I use it for streaming because we don't have tv, and he plays a lot of games.
The features on it are nice, and it doesn't make that pesky fan noise even if we leave it running for a long time.
Nah it's cool, several WERE in the wrong case AND doubled up, signs of my sister going through things.
Drove me batty as a kid but that fact she still does it as an adult is mind-boggling
Sadly, not there though.
Shit that sucks. I'm sorry.
I asked because bf has a habit of doing that shit and man it's triggering
It's stupid! just put the game back in the box it's not like it's hard get off your fucking ass and do it so you can find it again LATER
Sorry, that really rustles my jimmies something fierce. Many, many lost dvds.

At least you got it back, so there's that!
I've had people force things into my hand despite me warning them I'm very bad at remembering to return things, especially if they're not people I see a lot
I have a copy of Devil May Cry 3 I've been holding on to for about 10 years, I think. It's in a mailer ready to go but the shame is pretty fucking real
The Etrian Odyssey series is my favorite on 3DS, I'd start with 4. Heard that Bravely Default and Fire Emblem Awakening are both really good, know smt4 is good, Devil Survivor is okay if you turn of the voice acting, and the yo-kai watch games are a lot of fun and surprisingly pretty.
Fantasy Life seems like a game someone into Rune Factory/harvest moon would like, but I haven't played it.

What do you guys think of the new ffxv episodes coming out?
I'm personally hyped for episode Ardyn! Episode Lunafreya might be interesting since we've only seen like 5 minutes of her. I don't get episode Aranea though? Wish we could've gotten an episode Regis, Cor or Ravus instead.
Pic related is the rumored alternate ending we're gonna get. Not sure what I think about them adding new endings and stuff tbh.
Got me a Switch with Mario Odyssey and Zelda BOTW and wow man I love em. Already sunk 100+ hrs into Zelda and now starting Mario on the side. Also, Snipperclips is such a fun little co-op!
Recently bought Xenoblade Chronicles on 3DS, 4hrs into and I hate it. Sorry, idk, the combat is awful, it's just not my cup of tea I guess? I don't want to start it up again, might resell it or give it to my brother.
No but I just looked it up and I would LOVE to try it out! Definitely putting it on my list of things to pick up>>246493
I need to pick up Zelda BOTW again, ever since I got Splatoon and Disgaea 5 I've been neglecting it but it's such a good game
Everything is getting neglected when Crash drops for the Switch though. I'm waiting very patiently for Nintendo to announce Spyro too. Nintendo come on we already know you're doing it just make the direct already>>246530
I'm still working on my list, but I could post it to google docs or something when I'm done? It's not really impressive though I promise
THANK YOU. The game is too big at this point, but at the same time it just feels empty now. Nothing interesting has been going on, it's just dragging.
I can't even play the game on my Vita anymore. I remember them warning people to have more than 16gb for episode 5, now a 32gb card won't even work. It hasn't even been a full year, this is ridiculous.
They really just need to make a new game.

I'm so excited that you mentioned freedom wars because I think it's fucking fun and super underrated.
Of course, it's not without it's flaws, but I really believe if they revived it for ps4 (like monster hunter has) it could foster some really fun co op play.
Although I realise it would be much more difficult for them because they'd have nowhere near the following MH does, so it'll never happen.
Also I'm sad the vita is dying.

Hopefully I can get Tail Concerto back soon. Also gonna eventually pick up Ratchet&Clank and Sly Cooper since I never played those and hear they're p good
Oh man, I love Ape Escape! I have the core three games, but could never get the side games due to not having a PSP or EyeToy. Tomba is great, I ended up getting the digital copy on PS3 as I had the demo for it and played the shit out of it. I also had the demo for the second game, too! Croc and FFIX are also so much fun
Disgaea is so fun. I've got 1 and 2 for PS2 and PC and I'm waiting for 5 to come out on PC. Eventually I'll get the rest of the games. I'm also super excited for the re-release of 1 for the PS4 because of all the limited edition bundle merch.

I think I've played the first two games twice: I have them on PS2, the second on PSP, and the first one on the DS. Some people trash the PSP but its got some great gems for it imo
Now I'm seeing Disgaea 1 Complete coming to Switch and I'm trying to figure out if it's worth a third purchase
I mean it's a trap, since they're probably going to come out with more Completes, I just have to figure out where my line is
The funniest part about that is that I was trying to get my little sister into gaming at the time and was pretty sure she'd be into Ape Escape, so I went to GameStop and was like "I need Ape Escape 1 for PS2 plz"
They were like wut and showed me Ape Escape 2 instead. I bought it with my meager earnings and my sister was disappointed that it wasn't Ape Escape 1 and so it's pretty much untouched lmao

Maplestory 2 is coming out in a few days to closed beta. Not sure when open release is, but I assume shortly after beta. It's pretty cute. lots of character customization. The demographic for the game seems to be mostly people in their 20s and 30s (OG players from old school MS1). So I'm looking forward to the community for this game. MS1 has died down a lot. Nobody really parties or socializes anymore due to the direction the game took in terms of leveling. MS2 is definitely going to be a different approach. I'm super excited. Plus Maplestory is coming to mobile sometime. It'll be better than Pocket Maplestory (that game was absolute shit). Its great for on the go and there's better character customization in it too, as well as better UI and controls.
aside from that: >your favorite games (old or new)

I'm excited that they're coming out with a sequel, definitely looking forward to that!!
Fuckkk, I'm looking forward for that too now, I used to play maple story a lot back in 2007-8 but came back a couple years later only to find out the economy had crashed and nobody played it anymore…
Not looking forward to the mobile game though, those tend to be a cashgrab and not much fun at all.>>247871
I think it's been over ten years now… sheesh.

Hey, nice to see someone else enjoying DS. DS3 is my least favorite in the series but the PvP is decent. If you ever feel like playing together, please let me know!
Though, I haven't played DS3 in a while. Also, if you enjoy being a sorcerer, you're going to love it in DS and even DS2(soul memory is a pain though) because there are more sorceries and staves and you can diversify your magic build a lot more.
> it's actually funny when they are angry to the point of repeating "point down" gesture.
kek, I had that happen to me too.
Are you going to buy the upcoming DS remastered?

I'm this anon and I finally got myself a PS4 for the sole purpose of playing Bloodborne. Since I love the DS series, I thought of trying out Bloodborne and I'm so glad I did! The game is absolutely fantastic, from the gameplay, the characters, the lore, OST, everything!
You're set in a Lovecraftian world, dark and grim, with a Victorian England architecture and wardrobe, where you play as a hunter against beasts and alike.
You have a limited choice of weapons but they(trick weapons) can also be transformed rendering them usually a bit different and more powerful, thus diversifying the combat.
What I particularly like about this game and what makes it different from the DS series is that you have to be aggressive. For example, if an enemy hits you, you can regain the health shortly after by hitting back. There are only two shields in the entire game, and both aren't that much used from my pvp experience, instead, you're most likely to use a firearm to parry in a fight. This makes the combat fast paced and always has you on your toes which is unlike the DS games where you can tank through some bosses, hit and shield hit and roll etc. However, just like any other soulsborne game, you have to learn the boss's moves and its weak spots.
The only downside to this game is that there are way fewer weapons in this game and you can't have that many different builds.
There are a whole lot of similarities to other dark souls games when it comes to PvP, you can beckon other players to help you, you can invade them and you can co-op. There are also dungeons where you can grind to get more items and echoes(souls) and there are even lore tidbits and unique bosses in there, tbh I found the dungeons to be tedious, you will feel that way too if you have to grind for a long time to get a particular gem.
The only thing that I hate about playing online is that you have to have the PSN subscription.

I certainly going to get remaster, but i'm concerned about miracles and spells having limited use count, can't spam magic like that.

I unironically think DS2:SotFS is the best game in the entire series. The base game wouldn't do much for me but the dlcs made it into a great adventure. Majula alone is my comfort go-to zone and what I love about DS2 is that you have the ability to have a satisfying ending, different from other DS games.
I also prefer DS2 over DS3 because it feels like there are tons of different and varied places as opposed to DS3 with its rather a greyscale environment (the exception being Irithyll and Archdragon peak, my fav locations incidentally).
I like DS3 too, even though I felt that the people working on it were desperate for inspiration and kind of lacking in it, the gameplay was linear as opposed to DS2 where you can stretch into different areas and imo you have more freedom in choosing where and when you want to go somewhere. There's that exploration element that DS3 doesn't have.
What I prefer in DS3 is that the game progression/difficulty level is well made but that's precisely because it's so linear. Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed some boss fights in it like the Dancer of the Boreal Valley, Pontiff Sulyvahn, and the Twin Princes. Btw Ashes of Ariandel was the worst dlc in the entire soulsborne series and the final boss of that dlc was a huge dissapointment. I regretted preordering the season pass because I didn't feel it was worth the money. And I much preferred the Painted World of Ariamis despite the graphics being outdated.
Another thing that I'm sure a lot of people will disagree, is the OST. While I did like a couple of tracks that Yuka Kitamura did for the previous soulsborne series, I dislike her work on DS3. Her tracks are too 'epic' with almost every track having some cringy vocals(no lyrics) therefore all of the tracks sound alike. DS1, DS2 and Bloodborne tracks all have more unique tracks that suit the boss or the location.
I really don't get the hate for DS2. The only fault I find in it is the soul memory, I have no idea who in FS thought that was a good idea.

I don't recall being more limited with spells usage than let's say DS3. What I remember is that sorceries made PvE super easy while in PvP I would usually get roasted but I went for pure sorceries build.

Can anyone recommend some good non-osu, non-idolm@ster, non-tnt, non-vocaloid related rhythm games? Preferably on the psp/vita because I like the console more. I'm burnt out on taiko after grinding for the 100 full combo trophy + the must songs trophies, miku and idolm@ster are too easy, ia/vt and that gumi game are shit, and osu is too inconvenient.
Also, are the persona dancing games better than they look?
It's V version on the vita with the english patch. Really good tnt game, I spent more time on it than any of the other ones. Fucked up that they put Yuugen no Ran in it though, I might've been able to full combo all the oni songs without it.
sage for humblebrag>>248228>>248226
thanks for the recs, I just dl'd both of them!
Sorceries in DS1 don't have tracking as they do in DS3. Miracles on the other hand often overpowered.>>248174
People dislike DS2 for being much different from what developer was teasing players with, and general dumbing down of difficulty. But i have to say it has the best game world in souls series, so many places, so many intersections, it's so much fun exploring.

Do you guys have pouches for your handhelds? I have a pouch addiction

I had the same issue until I got the 3DS that came out with Link Between Worlds and got this pouch. I find it so fitting I can't bring myself to buy another one.

I have a Disney Princess case that holds all my DS games. I got it quite awhile ago but it's cute and it still holds the 2DS I just got well.
I want to get into Overwatch (Yeah, I know) but I would have to get a new system just to play it.

I remember seeing this in stores and having to talk myself out of it, it's so neat
Please continue! I have a pink PS2 lite i managed to cop from a thrift store for nothing and im buying the pink controller released for it since the console was p untouched and shiny! however I have been looking around for whats best, find a converter of some sort for my current television which is relatively new or just find an old tv for my old consoles? I keep hearing pros and cons from both sides and i don't even know what converters work best tbh
I have the old school PS2 as well and my next target is the PS, hopefully I will fix a wall mount for the PS gen's that I can unhook and use when i feel like it. Do you have any methods to cleaning consoles? Before & after pics are pooorn
great collection anon! thanks for the info on where to get them >>248871
dayum that's pretty
great, now I need to get more 3DS pouches
File: 1526411109605.jpg (712.6 KB, 710x964, ps1_before.jpg)
I'm really sad because I didn't take any official before pictures of the controller! I have the listing photo and a picture I took of the inside to remember how the wires go, the edges were completely brown.
and the buttons
there was so much crust just everywhere
It was so satisfying to just throw everything in the sink and wash it
The console was less interesting, but I found out the cd reader head literally just floats there on like three pegs, but it's not kept down by anything except one ribbon cable
I just blasted it with canned air (lots of dust!), took the buttons off the cover, and washed the top cover in the sink with dish soap
anything extra I got with magic eraser
there are some springs I didn't take out though, so I made sure to super dry it before putting it back together. It sounds dumb, but I flick it in the air to get water out, tap it against my leg, then tap it against the counter on a paper towel. After I'm sure I got all the water, I take a hair dryer to it, just to be double sure.
I did the same with the controller.
I love mine! ps2 lites are great. Does your tv have non-hdmi hookups? Composite or component? I bought an official component cable yearrrss ago, but they've gone up in price. You can go with a cheap aftermarket cable, or I'll share a link with these guys since I was thinking of purchasing a component cable from them because I'm an idiot who forgot I had one already>https://shop.hdretrovision.com/collections/component-cables/products/ps2-ps3-ypbpr-component-cable?variant=3769542246440
they have a mailing list, their stuff is popular and I've heard good things!
It looks like there's also hdmi converters, but I don't know if they're any good or not tbh
I have plans to hook up my PS1 and Genesis to my old box tv because I don't really like the look of these old games on hdtvs and the curse of nostalgia
the gamer community nitpicks EVERYTHING in terms of quality. For the ps2, it's literally aesthetics, since I think it's ps1 games that have issues with newer tvs (which I'm testing today), due to the 240p quality signal might be too low for these tvs.
I LOVE the idea of hanging systems on walls, especially if done with design in mind.
SMT Strange Journey: reducks came out today, here's a CIA for it in case anyone who wants it is broke and it's not of freeshop yet: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AHzvbScwz-Sur8uNE4KUSVT86gtwQqYS/view
Can confirm it's working, I'm playing it rn. Glad they didn't dub this one.

Finished! I have a feeling this one was mostly thrown around in flea markets and stuff like that. The directional buttons weren't even really dirty, it was weird.
I sanded down the R2 button – it's not beautiful but maybe I can find a way to shine/buff it up.
So I just finished doing a lot of testing on my tvs, and can report that the HD ones are finicky as shit when working with the PS1. I don't think they like the transition from 480 scenes to 240 and won't continue, but if you reset enough it will get through it and everything is fine.
Thankfully the box sees everything fine, but the sound is hummy and there's some flicker. I ordered new AV cables for it.
My PS2 slim doesn't have any of these issues, thankfully. I can play that shit everywhere. The main reason I wanted an OG PS was for nostalgia and to play a few games that my model of the PS2 slim reportedly can't play.
Fun Fact: apparently the slim has trouble with/can't play some regular ps2 games either.>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_games_incompatible_with_PlayStation_2
I'm also in love with this PS One controller. It's such a cute combo of light grey and grey-blue. I didn't expect this
My favorite game is Crossout. It is a post-apocalyptic MMO-action in which you can collect dozens of parts of the armored vehicle unique design, and then fight it in hot multiplayer battles. My friend recommended me this game. Special for it I bought proxy app on https://buy.fineproxy.org/eng/mini.html
which I can use also for watching tv and using forbidden sites.

So I'm really want to get my own Nintendo Switch, I've been co-using another Switch for a while now to play BOTW and other stuff but the selfish person I am, I thought that I should finally invest in my own one so I can play stuff in peace.
BUT there is one thing that kind of "worries" me and this is the fact that I don't really know how much it will affect my save data of all the games I have played so far and do all the DLCs move with my account to a new switch?
Does anybody here have some experiences with this? I have read several threads and official Nintendo sites about this and - I'm still not 100% convinced that I can move everything smoothly?
And for the last thing: When I move my account, with all the content that has been downloaded with it so far (games and DLCs etc.), are they also gone from the original Switch where they has been purchased from?
>ik that those are super dumb questions but my last gaming console has been the GameCube and well things have changed a bit since then lol

Is anyone else keeping tabs on these pokemon switch rumors? A lot of people are saying this Let's Go Pika/Eevee shit is true and I'm starting to get really scared…
What do you guys think? If you think it's legit, how do you feel about it?
I think it's true and 2018 might be the year the public realises that any given Yo-kai Watch game is better than all of the past two generations of pokemon games combined.

Thoughts on FF15?
I recently replayed it and even though the pacing is incredibly off, basically running Charters 9-14 through in less than five hours, I still found myself liking it just as much as I did back in 2015.
Apparently the whole of the internet seems to hate it, though.
Yeah most people hate it, but I enjoyed it for what it is.
And with the release of more content for it, I’m kind of excited. Hopefully it isn’t a disappointment. Having more story for Arden and Luna might be good though. And getting more front Aranea will be a bonus.
I got into it relatively late, but I’m pretty glad they are still pumping out content. Kind of have to, since the game is super unfinished, but those DLCs are really worthwhile. Looking forward to alternate ending in episode Noctis too, although the OG canon ending did kinda make sense.
It’s by no means a perfect game, but the internet shits on it so much they forget it’s humongously enjoyable and the characters are well-developed, despite poor storytelling, awkward romantic interest choices and suspension of belief more often than someone in church says amen.

I don't know whether to get Dark Souls Remastered or not.
I have dark souls 2 and 3 in my steam library and Bloodborne in my playstation library. I only played DS PtD pirated and that was two years after it was released, so I was hoping to get in with the recent remaster on the launch and the revived userbase.
But now there are hackers going rampant so my main reason for buying this are iffy with lots of negative reviews.
If I had the 20$ discount, I would have bought it pronto but giving 40$ for a patch seems like throwing away money and I'd much rather buy Kingdom Come in that case and buy the remaster later on sale or from a key shop.
Could someone give me their honest opinion on DSR if you've played it?
Welp, the rumors were true. At least this isn't supposed to be the core series rpg https://twitter.com/Pokemon/status/1001636250158223360?s=01
It looks nice enough and the pokeball accessory looks cute, I'll buy it if I can get a mew in there.
Can I rage about Her Interactive?
I grew up playing the Nancy Drew series, after reading the books as a little kid. They were so fun. The puzzles felt unique and challenging, the characters compelling and they managed to instill a scary/mysterious feeling without great graphics or triple A gameplay.
They were supposed to come out with Midnight in Salem..three years ago, I think? The reason they haven't is because some dumb bitch (Penny Milken) took over Her Interactive, fired everyone (including Nancy's voice actress) and hired a new team so she could push her STEM-based crap that no one wanted.
The "games" they've made since she's taken over are shit. I'm all for empowering girls with STEM, but Nancy Drew was ALREADY a strong female character and quite empowering to young women. There could have been ways to do what she wanted to do without pissing off longtime fans, firing the crew, killing their main franchise, etc. The products they produce now are soulless and boring, no wonder they're hemmoraging money. Modern girls aren't at all interested in their games. And the worst part is, that aforementioned new leader is a straight up cunt about it who can't admit she was wrong. She either lies to fans, talks down to them or has them blocked from their social media for asking questions. She's pushing her shit on an audience that doesn't want it, and it's not even well made, because she's a narcissistic white feminist.
I want Midnight in Salem, damn it.

To be fair, this game looks like it only exists to segue Go! only players (kids and millennial normies) to the switch/console games in general. The real gen 8 game is supposed to come out in 2019
And it won't just
be the first 151, it's been implied that we'll have alolan exeggutor too :^)

pic related was leaked like a month ago, but it's fake.
Like, I get that it's supposed to tie Go users to the Switch, but it gets a massive meh from me
I had to drop Go a long while ago, as it's a massive battery and data killer.
However if this is the engine we'll be getting for the next in the series, I'm p excited about it
As if, now with the Star Fox Gran Prix rumors going around I feel even less confident that this franchise will ever come back, but it would be so damn perfect for the switch. I miss it.>>255039
I've read so many times how much people love Earthbound and I feel I will have to play it just I can say that I've played too lol
Sound like a really good game tho.
It's so fun! I'm enjoying 6 so much, there's endless stuff to do.
Would it be worth checking out the older games? If so, what ones are your fave suggestions anon?
File: 1528021969920.jpg (264.48 KB, 1920x1080, Fortnite/battle-royale/fortnit…)
I recently started playing Fortnite and I'm super addicted already. Never cared much about online games, but I tried Far Cry 5‘s multiplayer after finishing the game (I love that one as well btw) and realized that playing with/against others can be fun. Fortnite looked a bit tacky at first and the community can be cringy (annoying little boys screaming into their mics), but I like the gameplay and I also like Epic Games (especially because of Gears of War).
I guess this will keep me occupied for a while. Another game I'm really excited for is Story of Seasons (ex Harvest Moon) for Switch! Finally a reason to get the Switch tbh!

So I have a super nostalgia boner for Katamari Damacy, so I decided to get Katamari Forever for PS4 and holy shit it's actually kind of harder than I remember?
Am I just not good at games?
I'm actually a bit curious about the upcoming smash for some reason? But on the other side I don't really care that much about Mario Tennis or more Splatoon stuff. It's been promoted for so long that I hope that we get to see more stuff that can be exited about like of course animal crossing for example. Or reveal what Retro is working on, some Metroid trailer that is more than just a logo, hell even more about Yoshi? Something that could make people excited about when Smash/Mario Tennis etc. isn't your case.
>tfw they announce ANIMAL CROSSING and then it's Amiibo Festival 2 lmao
What about CS?? I like to play this legendary game with my friends. We decided to play against others teams on https://dreamteam.gg/csgo/teams
It is special platform for gamers on CS:GO. You can find there many teams of players. I think it is good way to prepare for different CS:GO competitions in the future.
EA was a fucking joke lmao
Just watched it out of curiosity and it was pretty much over an hour about nothing lmao
Can't wait for Nintendo tho.
I was thoroughly unimpressed by everything I saw yesterday, but then again I only like weeb games.
Does anyone know someone funny who's streaming it? I settled for metokur yesterday and he was boring as shit. Said pretty much nothing save for some shitty /pol/ memes. Is etika streaming it and if so, is he more entertaining?
Om my god yes. I couldn't wait to get home from work to watch the dmc trailer and it was just…so disappointing. If I hadn't played the reboot I would've had no idea it was a dmc game. The music, setting, monsters and characters just don't look right? Also the mechanical arm? What's up with that?
I'm still keeping my hopes up, I liked the reboot somewhat, it wasn't a "real" dmc game but it was okay, but this…man.
Looking forward to Cyberpunk, The Walking Dead S4 and The Wolf Among Us…also Metro looks nice.
just watch the official streams. >>258376
i'm so angry about that and then the dev came up and said they basically killed the old series.

>>258376> The Wolf Among Us
Holy shit? There's The Wolf Among Us 2?
I can't believe I completely missed that. Thanks anon!
And yes, DMC5 was a huge let down. Like you said, it doesn't even feel much like a DMC game anymore, except for the protag sporting a long coat and the white haircut.
I thought I was the only one that was disappointed, the response was in general favorable.>>258389
He was such a qt, RIP.
octopath traveler looks cute. i'm a sucker for pretty looking turn based jrpgs. also interested in that new platinum game for the sole reason that its platinum. is it true ff7 remake is saved for sony conference? >>258423
not even a KH fan but i feel pretty bad for people who are looking forward to the game. at this points its like dangling carrots
not happy at all no ff7 and only 2 new games plus reused trailers. e3 2018: lets sell microsoft all our trailers edition.
atleast sony later will be a fun watch. and nintendo tomorrow best not disappoint.

okay i am a big kojima fan. but i'm getting annoyed at with the lack of a release date and i'm afraid it'll be like phantom pain all over again where the hype is so fucking big that the final end result will not deliver.
ghost of tsushima looks pretty cool and so does RE 2 remake.
not a devout KH fan, but all the trailers for KH 3 is making me want to get back into the series

meh overall, but I'm exited about re2 remake.
why didn't square enix show that new kh trailer though? and was that mitsuru kirijo's english va in the spiderman game??
i know. i know. i'm just worried about the hype being too big. i had to learn that the hard way with TPP unfortunately and i still havent recovered from how much of a let down that game was.
i am genuinely excited about the gameplay. i was watching someone stream + commentate and everyone was saying that gameplay looks bad, there's a lack of combat, they arent showing the monsters, etc. but i feel like thats whats making the game more interesting as of now, that lack of unknown.
Only thing I found interesting was Babylon's Fall. Not really a fan of FF, KH, or that dumbass Captain whatever Life is Strange bullshit.
I hated that I already knew that Fallout 76 was gonna be a bummer. I think everyone more or less felt that way. Building settlements was the least interesting thing about FO4 (for me at least) so having a game where this mechanic is at the forefront is just…idk, dissapointing. Just gonna wait and watch like everyone else, I guess.

Do you guys think it's worth it to buy a PS Vita just for remote play? I want to finish Yakuza 0 but playing games while lying in bed is so comfy, nothing else compares. I've just been mindlessly playing 3DS games while lying down.
I just went to visit /v/ and got disappointed by the amount of threads with "gurrrls destroy everything. guurls ruined the video games industry". Also, the hate against strong female protags.
I've been playing video games ever since I was a kid in 90s and I know other girls that like to play vidya without being vocal about it or doing it for attention. I guess what irks me the most is that their reasoning is that women can't have their own interests because everything we do is for attention. Idk why it gets me everytime. I just wonder how many gusy think like that outside of imageboards.
Anyhow, I found this jewel called Sable, and I really liked the art style of it, so I was thinking that some of you may appreciate it as well.
I'm hyped for quite a number of games, which makes me happy because I feared that I lost my love for vidya but Cyberpunk 2077, Sekiro, Death Stranding among others are titles that make me look forward. I wish there were estimated release dates, even if just approximate.
Btw, is getting PS4 Pro worth it if I already own PS4? Is the difference that stark?
Also, what do you think of Déraciné by From Soft?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jv51UO2ZQno
It gave me some serious Rule of Rose vibes, so I'm getting myself a VR set.
>>258689> Cyberpunk 2077 is not cyberpunk because there's sunlight
Same. I think it started as a joke but then some people started taking it seriously and adopted it as a part of a group think. I wouldn't be surprised if it was genuine idiocy considering the amount of /r9k/ and /pol/tards contaminating other boards.>>258691
That's a nice sale, yeah I think I will. I'm not going anywhere for holidays, might as well treat myself. Thanks anon.

I really interested in Cyberpunk 2077 too, are they releasing any gameplay footage?
That Deracaine game looks so amazing, too bad I'm a poorfag and can't afford VR set.

The HYPE is so real right now. Tbh I don't know what to expect and I hope for at least one big surprise tbh
I doubt we'll hear about smt5. They said they were only going to talk about games coming out this year and games coming out in 2019+ on a later date. Production on smt5 only started a month or two before the teaser trailer was released (little over a year ago?), so it's probably not ready for this year.
I wonder if jack frost in smash will ever be possible…

I work at a goodwill type place and run games/comics for adults, we actually got the Cyberpunk 2020 tabletop in some months ago which i was living for. SO TO MY SURPRISE it was literally a foreshadowing when I see the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer like 8years or something after they released a teaser that was forgotten in the ether until a collegue of mine mentioned it when we talked about the trailer.
Haven't been this hyped for a big title in a w h i l e.
CD Projekt Red has done a pretty good job adapting older works. I just got into the Witcher series a few months ago and their adaptation works so well. I have pretty good faith in them. The writer for CP2020 seems to be giving them lots of fluidity as well, he's enjoying how the team is working with him.
I will admit, a lot of the lingo they're using on social media right now is Battletoads hardcore fan tier cringe, but I hope there's a good reason.
Yeah, it seemed so forced. It didn't feel like Ellie is a lesbian just because she is a lesbian, it felt like they were going out of their way to be like "look at us and how inclusive we are, shocked you real good with lesbians". Couldn't they have made a sweet, natural kissing scene, and not one that felt like pandering to tumblr and neckbeards.
Plus, she doesn't even look like an older Ellie, she looks like a completely different character. They changed her face too much.
I don't know why everyone(read /v/) is so upset about the kiss. You have all these games that pander to guys with near naked women with no questioning whether it belongs in a game and for once there's like a non porn lesbian couple kissing on the screen with this ridiculous outrage.
So what it they put that lesbian kiss for appearing inclusive? It's not like games never do things to appeal to a certain type of audience.
You don't have to like the game or the change of Ellie's character, I just wish you and the rest would be honest and admit that you don't like non sexualised female characters in your game because if it were two bimbos making out then no one would have complained.

It has been since the beginning of January since I last played anything. I had a lot of free time but I couldn't get myself to turn on my 3DS. I have a bunch of DS and 3DS games I want to beat but I just don't have the motivation for my hobbies in general. Did it ever happen to any of you? How do I find the motivation to beat the games I have in my backlog, especially long games like JRPGs?
Personally im above the moon that for once a studio doesnt just do a gay stint for ~charcter development~ but actually kept it part of her. Im more tired of all these overhyped small kisses/interactions between same sex characters (usually background characters not even mains) thats supposed to be so groundbreaking but really mostly just safe pandering. I also dont understand what the fuck people mean by ellie didn't seem/feel gay like what the fuck is she supposed to do roll up as a kid with a leather vest asking if somebody needs help building a cat shelter??
This is an instance where i feel people yell pandering just because its just a gay character and people are so tired of the troons and tumblr culture they forget that not every gay character made is a big money scheme, especially considering Ellie isn't overly sexualised nor did their trailers aim for any real focus on relationship drama besides making an enticing intro to their game.
(If pandering is on the menu hit up Square Enix and life is strange thats so obviously pandering but people keep blowing it up everyones ass for being so deep, real and lgb open yet the moment the DLC with Ellies first kiss came out people lost their shit like how fucking dare Naughty Dog have a downloadable story to venture into some of Ellies past/relationships without burdening you or the main plot compared to literally playing Degrassi: Square enix edition)

I just bought an Xbox one a week ago with a copy of Grand Theft Auto V! I want to use gaming to meet people and make friends, but it's kind of hard finding people to play with. Everyone I already jnow who has an Xbox… doesn't have GTAV, despite the fact that I bought it because when I asked them about the games they like the most, GTAV was the one everyone kept saying they spend the most time playing. I downloaded Life is Strange, which is keeping me a little busy since I never did finish the game the first time I played it, but I'm already getting bored with it. Gaming just isn't as stimulating and entertaining as it used to be or maybe I just need different games? I loved Portal, Limbo, Monument Valley and other puzzle games, mission based games aren't really my thing honestly but I was drawn to GTA because of the online play ability.

God this game reminds me of an updated version of Arthur's Absolutely Fun Day for GBC.>>282015
I love transparent cases! I bought myself the GameStop exclusive PS4 controller last year when it was on sale and it's so pretty. I've also seen a blue transparent version of the Hello Kitty Dreamcast.
man, this is exactly why i'm not ready to invest in a switch. i don't want to buy one thinking this what they're planning to position as the next 3ds and then they suddenly announce a new handheld device that is the real successor to the 3ds :(
that being said, if the switch gets animal crossing like we're all anticipating, i will get it 100%
Yeah honestly I really don't wanna drop $300 on a Switch unless there's an Animal Crossing releasing. Tbh Smash U is looking underwhelming and Shin Megami Tensei V is something I'm actually anticipating for, but it's not a console buyer.
Getting the next console Animal Crossing is the reason why I got a Wii U, which I now regret.
I feel like everyone was saying this when the switch originally dropped, and I was even tired of hearing it from my friends
I don't think the Switch is replacing the 3ds. "portability" is one of the selling points, but it is nowhere near the same as a ds. I, and probably others, am afraid to take this thing out and about like I would a ds, and if I'm taking it to a friends, I pack it up in a case and take it over. I wouldn't call this "convenient" really, but it is better than lugging over a regular console.
I agree that the 3ds is dying, and like >>282692
said, I would not be surprised if they're coming out a replacement handheld.>>282666

Why didn't you at least buy the pikachu themed one? Anyways, the 3DS has a strong library and a great hack. Doesn't really matter if no one is making new games for it.
Not anon you're replying to but aren't those Pikachu ones LE? Or am I mistaken?
As for me I've been playing a browser based game called "The Settlers Online." It kind of reminds me of Civilization. I am not usually into these kinds of games but I'm actually enjoying it. I'm hoping to get a new hdd soon for my PC because my last one kicked the bucket very dramatically.
as the others said, not at all, there are so many good games since this system has been around so long now

On that note, are Deus Ex HR and MK actually a cyberpunk setting? I thought about it recently while playing MK. To me it could be described as an anticipation or science-fiction game, but calling it cyberpunk would be a bit too far. Could it be because almost all technologies in the games bar the augmentations are actually feasible and already commercialized?

Shit I remember some people arguing that Cyberpunk 2077 wasn't cyberpunk because some scenes took place during the day, maybe the genre's just evolving beyond the movies that defined it visually

Yes, every game in the Deus Ex franchise is cyberpunk, even if Deus Ex HR "only" have super advanced physical augmentations and a mega AI powered by human slaves and built by the Illuminati.

God I hate the people who think cyberpunk is supposed to be 100% COOL NEON CITY. Check out gameplay of the SNES version of Shadowrun. It's extremely cyberpunk.
I wouldn't be surprised if the developers of CP2077 took a lot of influence from this game. It's gritty, dirty, technological, and I love it. The lingo they use in this game is entertaining as well.
And the trailer is like 95% neon, with punks, advanced technologies, body-mods, and evil corporates.
Is SNES Shadowrun good? I might give it a try.
I personally like it. Most people compare the gameplay like the first Fallout games.
Exploring the area is my favorite aspect and the fact it's real time combat with a cursor makes it a unique experience for me.
File: 1535223743961.jpg (38.21 KB, 460x215, header.jpg)
Are any of the more recent (except the FPS) Shadowruns any good? I accidently got Returns, Boston and Dragonfall in my Steam library and I need something that doesn't make me feel too guilty of still not finishing my first FO1 game
File: 1535229052364.png (306.97 KB, 694x334, Screenshot_2018-08-25_22-29-36…)
I liked Hong Kong a lot, it has a very nice setting and feel.
I was also playing Dragonfall and it was good but I started getting bored with it and dropped it, I do that with a lot of games though.
I did find HK's story and setting to be a little more interesting.
People generally have negative opinions on Returns and I don't know about Boston.
File: 1535235114052.jpg (194.77 KB, 1920x1080, boston's depth.jpg)
If you play the Returns campaign, the story takes a steep dive 3/4ths of the way in. It might depend on how you feel about being second fiddle to ~iconic~ Shadowrun characters. It's not too long a story though and I'd say the game is fun.
Dragonfall's campaign is a bit long but the story is a good one, I felt. Haven't gotten around to HK yet and Boston Lockdown is a buggy mess from different developers.
Thanks now at least which one I'll store in my "Trash" library category
This looks fucking great

I loved it, despite the dialogue which was a bit over the top.>>286046
Agree, this is the game I'm really looking forward to. I just wish we knew the release date.
Yeah the dialogue sounds a bit off, I'm pretty sure it's translated from polish. Maybe I'll just play it with polish voices, I tried it with the witcher 2 and it was surprisingly great
They really nailed the gunfight mechanics and didn't make it feel to rpgey (you can one-shot targets) but I really hope we can use some katanas. The city better be good too>>286119
They spent all their ressources on the Witcher 3 instead, which ended up being an excellent decision

File: 1535834321828.jpg (80.84 KB, 660x409, Fire_Emblem_Overview.jpg)
What do you guys think about the Fire Emblem fanarchise? Favourite games?
I recently got into Fates (Conquest/Nohr path). First of all, the strategy aspect of the game is brutal, and I'm playing on Normal mode. I had to reset the game god knows how many times because my units kept falling, the maps were ridiculous. Another thing that had me gasping is that you literally can't grind. How the fuck am I supposed to beat those maps if my units aren't at my desired level? I had to leave out of battle severeal units because the story kept going on and getting more and more hard which lead to them to being underpowered and even outclassed. The only way to possibly grind is to buy DLC maps which I refuse to in order to freaking grind , like, no.
All these downsides led me to chose to play in Phoenix mode (fallen units ressurect with full HP at each turn) which makes me feel like a massive beta but there was no bloody way I could beat this game otherwise, under those conditions.
That's a huge shame because I am a sucker for the aesthetic of Nohr and I prefer the characters and units you get from the Nohr side, specially Effie, Peri and Niles. Also had children with the Butler, kek.
I really hope Birthright is better because I actually enjoy the story of the Nohr/Hoshido war.
I've only played Awakening and Fates (all routes) so I guess I can't speak about the whole franchise but I think I can help. The best way of getting into Fates is in this order Birthright (Hoshido) ->Conquest (Nohr) ->Revelation (Spoiler). Birthright is easier and you can do some level grinding without the DLC for this. Conquest is brutal even on normal, that's the point of the route, but the maps and missions are way more varied than in Birthright so it's still fun. I bought all the DLCs because they were on sales at some point but I never used them in Conquest, and I managed to do some support grinding by doing battles online with people I met on streetpass.
Revelation is shit with shitty plot twists that make the stories in the other routes even more nonsensical, and the actual really interesting aspect of the story are locked behind DLCs anyway. And the most important part is that the maps in Revelation are full of stupid and annoying gimmicks. The localization is trash too because they tried to hard to make the games fit in the T rating in the USA and we're stuck with the same terrible localization decisions in Europe. I think you shouldn't be ashamed of playing on phoenix mode, keep in mind you can still have a game over in theory (Conquest fucking chapter 10). Do you already have Birthright or are you going to download it later?
tldr; Try to do battles online so you can support grind in Conquest and obtain more rare weapons because they're super useful. Try to unlock all of the children this way so you have more maps where you can gain experience, items, money (especially Arthur's son's map) and OP characters, if you use Mozu make her an archer because Niles, who is best boy of Fates, will be your only bow user for a long time.

and play puyo puyo tetris
I’ve only played the older ones. I really liked the three games on the GBA ( 6, 7, 8) and I started losing interest in the series with Radiant Dawn
I should probably try the 3DS series but I just don’t like how secondhand video games are around $30+ now.
File: 1535925834734.jpg (13.52 KB, 168x156, 1512708013538.jpg)
fire emblem conquest has one of the worst stories i've ever encountered in a video game. i'd just like to say that i'm still angry about it.
I've been playing Stardew the past couple of weeks, I really enjoyed it, have about 80 hours logged, but im kind of disappointed by the late game stuff and a lot of elements feel like they weren't really thought out. I don't really like the dungeon/combat stuff which I guess isn't a big deal since you don't really have to do it but it felt unnecessary. Being married and having kids in the game is kinda weird too, they just kinda hang around the house and you don't get much interaction with either. I also find it kinda lame that for most of the events you don't have any incentive to go once you've done it the first time because nothing changes.
It's a great game overall and I don't feel like I wasted my time playing it or anything, just feel like a lot of things could be tweaked to make them much better.
When you play Revelation, Conquest feels even more like shit why the fuck didn't Azura tell anything to Corrin when they were in Valla in Conquest, but in Revelation she does? Because fuck you I guess?
At least the supports are good overall, the guys are cute and the gameplay is really great.

Has any other farmer played Night in the Woods and LOVED it?
I know some people laugh at it being a SJW game, but I found it extremely relatable and well-written. I felt like the characters were real people and not just SJW stereotypes for representation. For example, I loved how normal the gay couple was presented. They were just two guys in relationship; each had their own quirks and issues. There was nothing obnoxious ('OMG LOOK AT THOSE PRECIOUS SMALL BEANS!!! SO GAAAAY') about it or the plot revealing that the protagonist is bisexual. I loved the art, the music, the mood of run-down city… Everything felt so real and non-forced to me. I feel like replaying the game on a non-laggy computer. On another note, can anyone recommend something similar? I have already played LiS and even Before the Storm. I heard that Oxenfree might be similar a bit, but I'm put off by the teenage drama (maybe I'm wrong?).
I never was into media featuring anthro animals, but NitW and Bojack Horseman changed that (though I'm not and never will be a furry, kek).
If you know any other media like this, feel free to rec too.
Thank you, I will check Oxenfree after playing NitW once more. That game is so comfy and perfect for Autumn!
I liked LiS but it took me some time to play it because the forced teenspeak sort of turned me off. I ended up loving the game. Before the Storm was so much weaker though. The writing felt even more cringy than in the original games.
I found the scene with the Shakespeare play where you help your friend and can fuck-up the lines strangely similar to the one in NitW. Maybe that's just a weird coincidence.
I've heard that Kentucky Route Zero is similar in some way to Night in the Woods, but I have not played it yet, so I cannot confirm.

oh my god yes! I loved it tbh, like you said the characters were very believable and I strongly disagree with those people that claim OH its an SJW game~.
It's a really charming game and I love the soundtrack to death. I think it's a fantastic game to play in the fall.

It has been months since I played video games and I feel like getting back into it. I love Pokemon but I never had the opportunity to complete a pokedex. I think I'll try this time by downloading Pokemon Blue and Pokemon Gold on the 3DS as well as the pokebank, completing them and transferring all of my pokemon from all the games in either Pokemon Sun or Pokemon Ultra Moon. Did anyone try this? How long do you think it will take, given that transferring from gen 4 to gen 5 is incredibly annoying?
Obviously after that I'll try to trade online and hatch eggs once that's done.
Night in the Woods anon here. I love VA-11 Hall-a! I have started playing it a year ago on a laggy netbook and reached like halfway point (or maybe more?). I will have to start from the scratch because I spent too much money and will not be able to pay rent. This game is amazing, love all the characters and the oldschool art. >>292316
Semi-related… I want to get back into Pokémon too. Do I buy myself a 3DS or a Switch? I am really excited about the Let's Go Eevee game because I could never appreciate the newer games as much as the classic gen. Recently I tried to play Black and White and it did not pull me in… I played like 6 hours and stopped. Idk why.
What are other great games on Switch?
I liked Pokemon White and Black 2 but I felt like they were very different from the rest of the series, I don't how to explain why though. But overall it really felt like a soft-reboot. >I tried to play Black and White and it did not pull me in… I played like 6 hours and stopped. Idk why.
I found the start of BW very slow too but after you reach that one city that's kind of like New York it gets better imo. I felt like Pokemon X and Pokemon Sun were more similar to the rest of the series with pokemon from all gens being readily available for you and even just the atmosphere of these games. Playing Sun reminded me of Colosseum because of the 3d models. I think buying a 3DS in general is a good idea if you like nintendo in general because it has a very good catalogue.
>I am really excited about the Let's Go Eevee game because I could never appreciate the newer games as much as the classic gen
That's kind of the reverse for me, I played the original game (each version, multiple times) as a kid and Fire Red way too much, I don't think I'll actually buy this one.

Do you guys think Fire Emblem is a noob-friendly game? I was quite fascinated when it first came out but dont have any means to play it until now when i got my frist console ever~yay! Its the new 2ds xl btw

I'm obsessed with cute consoles that I go out of my way to buy them when I don't really play the games that come with them. i bought this pink and white vita and it is sitting on my shelf but I can't get rid of it or i will want to buy it again! I play it occasionally to justify the purchase but it was more of an aesthetic reason

I also bought the older 3DSXL (pictured ) even though its clonky af but they don't make the new ones in cute color schemes! I have a white PS4 and am currently customizing my nintendo switch with a white shell.

the regular sized new 3ds is the best looking console nintendo has ever made and it can pull off multiple different cute looks due to the changeable face plates, but go off.
i literally forgot that existed but am seeing they don't make the smaller one anymore? :( They still make the XL ones oof why does everyone want huge items.
Other than that has anyone played Spider-Man yet? I keep seeing memes with the selfie mode and I'm very excited to try it out!

btw you have these cat paw analog covers, right? no point in owning a vita without them.
Anon, get yourself a cheap SD2VITA for ~$5, a microSD card with 120GB or 256GB, install h-encore homebrew, download some roms, and get the pkgj app!
I bought a Vita last year and didn't expect the end of it's lifeline to come so quick.
I've installed quite a bit of roms and games on mine and I have my Vita on me everywhere I go now. One thing I like is that you can also play certain PS1 games in eboot format and all the PSP games. There's emulators for other consoles as well, but they're kinda weak. seriously though I'm enjoying purchasing this console now since the battery lasts so long compared to 3DS.>>293323
I still need to get some nice analog covers. They do make a difference haha

Does anyone have any animal crossing alternatives? I’m dying for a new game 😕 I don’t like pocket camp. I got bored of happy home designer.

Check out Seabeard for ios/android! It looks like Windwaker and has the pirate/sea theme of it, but with gameplay close to Animal Crossing. I have not yet played it a lot, but it looks promissing.
Too lay to delete my previous post but also check out this list http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/Animal+Crossing+Pocket+Camp/feature.asp?c=75789

Try Enchanted Folk and the School of Wizardry!! (it's called Magician's Quest: Mysterious Times in NA)it's super similar to AC and it's for the DS. You can play it on an emulator too pretty easily.
NTAYRT but thank you!!! I have just purchased a Nintendo DS lite and Im looking for quality games to try, especially the cute, less known ones.
Do you have any other recs? Im especially interested in plot heavy or cute games, like RPG, visual novel, but also survival horror.

I really like miwashiba's stuff. I played 1bit heart a year or so ago and I really loved it and I've finally gotten around to playing LiEat and I just love the whole soft sweet feel everything seems to have and how cozy it all is, despite there being themes like murder and whatnot. I love the themes, the art and the characters and to top it all off, miwashiba seems like a cool person too. I kinda want to makes games like 1bitheart and lieat now haha.
I'm really looking forward to playing alice mare.
Does anyone know any games with similar styles and themes? I'd really really appreciate it.

Don't know if you can understand Japanese, but if so FabStyle is a Style Savvy (also shockingly fun if you've never played) clone with a dating sim built in. Someone's currently working on an English patch but progress is very slow due to some file types.
Tomadachi Collection is pretty fun too, the prequel to Tomadachi Life on 3DS. There's an English patch out there if you ever want to try it.
Some might not exactly be what you're looking for, but I also recommend the Tamagotchi Corner Shop games, Taiko No Tatsujin DS, Children of Mana, Warioware DIY, Harvest Moon DS Cute, Diddy Kong Racing DS, Bomberman Land Touch, Professor Layton series, Castlevania Order of Ecclesia & Dawn of Sorrow, Retro Game Challenge, Lunar Knights, Aliens: Infestation, and Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals.
I just realized you said DS lite, so that means GBA games too?
Boktai, Drill Dozer, Castlevania Aria of Sorrow, Summon Night, Gekido Advance, and Lunar Legend.
I do not think that supporting companies that create games that you love is pathetic. If you can afford that, why not?
Having said that… any flash cards that allow you play online with your pirated games? Just curious, do not have 3DS yet.
In most cases you do not need a flash card you just need an SD card and you can play online with pirated games. That's what I did
It can be different based on the installed firmware version though
If anyone wants to do it or read about it this is a very good site https://3ds.hacks.guide/
yeah about that…
maybe if nintendo didn't region lock everything i wouldn't pirate games. i don't pirate switch games (and won't)
nta, but o wow, thank you for this!!! i like games but am a poorfag and received a 3ds from a friend but have felt like total shit being unable to use it because i dont want to shell out money on games. im so excited!

Interesting others are talking about homebrew and emulation, I just got my R4 SDHC card in the mail and currently setting it up to play on my 3DS and DSi. Hopefully it's successful!
I'd highly recommend installing homebrew and retroarch. Warning it is a process, you need another microSD and in some cases (depending on your firmware version) a magnet to force your DS asleep at one point. It was kind of a pain, but I was able to get it all done and up and running within a couple days and now can pretty much get any game.

That whole direct was pretty damn good, way better than E3. I wish Kirby's Epic Yarn was going to be ported to the Switch instead of the 3DS… But I'll definitely download it anyways. Luigi's Mansion 3, Yoshi, Katamari Damacy remaster, Bowser's Inside Story for 3DS, and obviously Animal Crossing are all super exciting too.

Anyone else see this? it's a shame I was looking forward to The Wolf Among Us 2.
I'm kind of surprised by this news but aside from the early Walking Dead and Fable-based games they acquired a reputation for really half-assing things.
Their Game of Thrones license in particular. No matter what you did in that it ended one way, just with different faces filling the same role whether it made sense or not.

This just popped up in my feed, Capcom's porting the remastered AA Trilogy to PC, PS4, One, and Switch. Unknown retail?
I'm lukewarm to this, I already own this like twice or thrice. I just hope they'll finally move past the original three. I'd rather have a Dai Gyakuten 1/2 localization or another mainline game.
I suppose it's nice for anyone who wanted to play it on their console, eh
>>298869>I'd rather have a Dai Gyakuten 1/2 localization or another mainline game.
Ace Attorney 7 is already in development apparently, but we never got actual news beyond that. With how AA6 ended I'm really looking forward to AA7 Anyway, it's like the writers became huge cowards after Shu Takumi "left" and decided to plagiarize the first 4 games and Ghost Trick for all the big plot points and characters. And when they finally decide to do something unexpected it's fucking shit, like how AA6 ends.
And personally I don't have any expectations for DGS in the West. I feel like the only way we could get this game is if MAYBE they will be released on the Switch as well.

>>298982>Wait, I missed this. What's this about?
It's more about complaining about tropes and plot twists that are becoming too common in the series than actual plagiarism. I have no idea if you played Ghost Trick, which is a game by Shu Takumi, and it's really good, so I'll spoiler the rest of the post just in case:>in the last two cases of AA5, the relationship between Athena and Blackquill as well as the plot twists and the motives of the culprit are really similar to the relationship between Lynne and Jowde, as well as the motives and identity of the antagonists. >The antagonists in both games are foreign spies seeking a mysterious part of a meteorite who can use very advanced technology, and their plans are put to an end by a young women who is trying to help get an innocent older man who knows too much out of jail.>Apparently Ghost Trick takes places in the same universe as AA so that makes things even worse in a way.>Overall, Athena is literally just a fusion of Lynne and Edgeworth when it comes to her personality and backstory>They had to recycle the whole Kurain/Fey family feud sub-plot to make AA6. It didn't feel like a sequel so much as a retelling, you just replace Apollo, Nahyuta and the princess whose name I forget with Phoenix, Mia and Maya or Pearl, Morgan and the queen of Khurain have almost the same exact motive and things get predictable super fast>Nahyuta s also just Edgeworth 2.0, instead of being the childhood friend he's the protagonist adoptive brother now! So original>Maya is back! Great but now instead of doing anything interesting with her in the main plot, let's just say she did some vague stuff to train and make her the accused or an indirect victim AGAIN. The DLC case is where you can have her as your assistant and that was really cool>Edgeworth is just there for the fanservice at this point instead of having an actual part in the plot or backstory, unless we're talking about the DLC case>Lamiroir on the verge of revealing everything to her children AGAIN but she doesn't yet
People were really shitting on AA4 back in the day but at least it tried to change things a bit to make things more exciting and give us new content. They're probably trying to do this with Apollo leaving at the end of AA6, which wouldn't be so bad if his backstory didn't feel so half-assed and unresolved with the whole Khurain bullshit.
I'm aware I seem like I'm complaining but I still liked AA5 and 6, just not as much as the previous games. I feel like AA7 is going to be super predictable now, I wish we had more cases like 6-2 and 6-4 for example, instead less obligatory huge cases that ties everything together. Sorry for the sperging.
Thank you for that! I played Ghost Trick eons
ago back when it came out because I heard is was like PW, but with ghosts and I was like hell yeah
And I remember really liking it, but I couldn't tell you any specifics at all lmao
>Apparently Ghost Trick takes places in the same universe as AA so that makes things even worse in a way.
Really? I must've forgotten that
I never finished AA6, but yeah I do remember getting bored with more Fey nonsense
DGS is very, very refreshing with all the simplified, but still useful things they've been doing. I feel like at least AA5 was getting bogged down with technology, probably AA6 too but I can't remember

I love the game but I'm also ultra socially awkward, I get either anxious or tilted every time I join voice chat. Right now I can only focus with comms off.
Both my brother and my boyfriend play the game but they're useless and can't leave silver. They play together and say the matchmaking is holding them back and that they should be a higher rank. I've offered to boost them but they refuse because deep inside they know they're shit. I'm on diamond and could probably get master if I wasn't so awkward.
By the way I'm really looking forward to see a new woman in the Overwatch League. She even reached top 100 in the Korean ladder.
Yeah good luck using voice especially if you're a female dps player. It doesnt matter how good you are you'll get harassed pretty often. Ive even had two situations where someone on my team threw the game because I wasn't playing mercy. So now I never use vc unless Im in a party.
Im in diamond have hit masters before on pc if anyone is interested
I usually play ana, zen, mccree, d.va, and sombra. If you're a woman picking sombra or widowmaker people will lose their fucking minds lol
Also I'm not in EU or NA so it's hard to find partners to play with in places like this. I solo Q 100% of the time.
Ah ok, thank you for offering though!>>299040
I am the same way, talking over mic makes me nervous and I can’t concentrate on the game. I feel bad because I met a nice group of people on OW who are willing to play with me but I’m just too socially awkward to talk on mic. I try my best to communicate through the commands and listen to what others are saying but I know talking is the best form of communication.
I’m also excited to see more women in OWL, you don’t hear about them a lot even though Geguri was the only decent player in the Shanghai Dragons. She deserves a better team tbh.>>299056>>299062
It sucks girls are made fun of for playing support but also get criticized if they don’t play support. Meanwhile a bunch of shitty male widowmakers are missing headshots and no one says anything lol.

Seems like telltale is shutting down.
I feel like I get different experiences because I play OW on console, and usually don't start voice chat until I hear someone else. (I also usually have to get a drink or so in to reduce the nervousness and don't play comp. Mainly QP or mystery heroes).
I haven't had bad experiences–I usually end up talking to people that are 12-15 and feel bad because I'm, like, potentially twice their age. I ask them to make sure their parents are okay with them talking to someone that much older than them in the future if it is a concern, and try to limit my swearing once I learn their age.
(I've actually had parents message me back and say that their kid asked them, and appreciated me feeling a concern about the age gap and that they were okay with me continuing to play with them. I've also had another tell me that they would rather not and I said that was totally okay and like that they look out for their kid and removed them from my friends list)
I've never been harassed for being female, just confused for being a teenage boy. Are console players just more friendly? Or is it because I don't really like comp and stay out of it? (I play for fun; I don't want to get to a point where I get angry at game.)
Dumb question time:
For those with a Switch, how do you carry it around?
I had a case that had an okay amount of space, but not enough room for both a joycon grip and a pro controller. That wasn't necessarily the deal-breaker, but the black dye in the fabric was leaking into the grips of my joycon grip and the design of my card holder.
I decided to upgrade to a nicer case, something that can hold both a grip and pro controller, plus the other stuff I wanted to keep around (AC adapter, joycon straps, hori stand, game case, amiibo cards). So I bought the big Tomtoc case. I got it in today and noticed that the grip that I use (PowerA) is actually bigger than the regular Nintendo one, and won't fit in the slot unless I shove it in. Cue me cutting and sanding the foam to adjust the slot, and when I finally finish, I realize the lid doesn't close all the way, and if I push it down it pushes on the triggers of the pro controller and the loaded grip.
Just, augh. I realized this is a problem of the case being too short. Everything sticks up too much and the lid isn't deep enough to have a pocket AND accommodate for everything sticking up. I can fix the foam, but I can't fix the case height. :(
tl;dr what do you guys use to carry Switch gear around when you want to play with frands

If you can grab it on sale I’d recommend Captain Toad, but there’s a demo out so check that our first
Golf Story is absolutely fantastic, don’t be fooled it’s first and foremost an rpg not a sports game
Also hollow knight and shovel knight are both great for scratching certain nostalgia issues.
Also in my experience fighting games are dreadful without the pro controller

right now it really depends on how much you like zelda, ssb, and mario. you're pretty much signing up for a console that has like 10 games on it. you need to think about how bad you want to play those games before you buy it.
and btw if you're willing to give up online play, piracy is now possible on the switch and piracy with atmosphere will be possible very soon.

i just bought one and i'd like some recs. particularly girly things like i just got style savy: styling star and its the cutest thing ever, you can paint your nails, do your hair, do your makeup, dress up and dress up others i love it. i also really like project mirai dx (nendo dress up?? yessss…), animal crossing a new leaf, cooking mama sweet shop and kirby triple deluxe. i like cute things basically.

I'm a decent way through the Rune Factory 4 on 3DS and it is amazing. Sooo addicting. Garden farming, cooking, fishing & gathering, crafting, combat, exploring. You get to raise animals and of course build your love meter with different townsfolk lol. It's really super fun, much recommend!
I also really enjoy the Theatrhythm Final Fantasy games for 3DS. I grew up with bemani/ddr games and FF so it just feels so ~right~ and the music gets me nostalgic in a good way!
Another (regular) DS series I always recommend is called Lost in Blue. Idk what it is about these games but I find them really engaging and decently challenging.
Anyone else feel like the first style savvy had way better clothes? Specifically egl clothes, those were all I really liked when I was a kid. I played it for a second the other day and the clothes looked so much nicer than 99% of what's in the 3DS games.>>324665
this, the music was pretty cute too. i love alina.

I love Style Savvy!
I haven't finished Styling Star yet, I actually like how the game goes day by day instead of by the user's time now. I do wish the male clothes were put back in the same shop instead of being separate, the third and fourth game fucked up with that. I also wish the guys could wear Kanokoi clothes in the English versions.
By the way, has anybody checked out FabStyle for DS and 3DS? Unfortunately it's only available in Japanese, but there's a fan translation in the works. This game has a dating system, which I'm super interested in.
Yes! They released version 1.2 in June, but the translation is minimal since the guy only knows beginner's Japanese.https://gbatemp.net/threads/unfinished-fabstyle-english-project.427043/
It seems they're having problems with a folder of text from being edited, so until that can be solved the project is on hiatus.
let's go is very cute and honestly a delight, i'm obsessed with it. i never touched go and have no intention to, it's not a requirement. >>327146
im still kind of hoping that they will expand on the game with dlc (now that they can since it's on the switch) but i'm not counting on it. still, it'd be so cool for them to release all the other regions in installments…will never happen tho.
Yeah, they replaced the tedious shit with more tedious shit i.e. forcing you to catch 50 fucking unique pokes just to get into Koga's gym
That said, I thought it was fine. Really disliked those gym requirements though, + some of the character models look weird

My bf and I are having fun with it, as well as our friends. I don't think it's that bad, people are just being dramatic because they were expecting an actual fallout game when it's clearly supposed to be a spin off. Like it's literally just a fallout themed survival game, don't expect more than that. They're patching in a lot of features before the end of the year like PTT and there's a huge update today for performance.
I haven't run into any severe graphical or gameplay issues, either. I'm just having fun exploring and building with bf and friends. There are quests and events and a lot of flavour stuff, though not particularly deep. As long as you don't expect it to be a polished full fallout game and like survival games you will enjoy it. It's not amazing or groundbreaking or even the best survival game out there but it's entertaining if you like the fallout universe.
>>327298>expecting an actual fallout game
LMAO did you even watch the video? Todd said MULTIPLE times that ~all the studios~, from Montreal to US were putting 76 as their main focus and almost all of their effort and bandwidth was going in to it. That it was absolutely EPIC in size and it's what the fans really want.
Kind of weird you'd do that for a spin off, huh? It's almost as if by saying "it's just a side game" it somehow magically removes valid criticism of the game.
yes I watched the e3 conference and heard all Todd's shilling bullshit and I still recognised the game for what it was, a shitty spin off survival game. I literally never thought it would be anything more. so unless they plan on expanding it and jerking more money out of it he was talking out of his ass. it was the same shit with TESO. I was there when people thought that was going to be a real TES game too.>>327309
they intend on using it for TES6 too, it's gonna be a nightmare lol. it sucks that Bethesda has all my favorites IPs because all they see is dollar signs.
but if the question is "is 76 fun" yes it is if you expect nothing but a fallout themed rust.

why isn't there a fucking pop'n music game on switch yet?
yeah, I've been playing the fuck out of the psp games lately.
I wish the switch had a decent music game period. vita has a ton of great music games on it's own, then all of the music games in the ps1 AND psp library on top of those, meanwhile the switch only has one sub-par taiko game and squid beatz 2…
here are some I enjoyed:>miku f>miku f 2nd>miku x>miracle girls>superbeat>ia/vt>taiko x im@s games>persona dancing games
>The few I've tried playing besides Taiko were filled with K-pop shit.
you mean superbeat and dj max technika tune? I liked those a lot, but if you really don't like kpop i guess I see why you wouldn't. ia/vt has the best ost of the ones I listed imo, I regularly listen to few of the songs in that game. some of the best ones are dlc though. pretty sure there's a mai of all the dlc floating around at least.

There's no Pop n Music at any of my Round 1s either. Do any of the Round 1s across the nation even carry it? The 3 in my location have a few different games from each other but for the most part, it's the same cabinets.
The first thing I thought of when I was done playing at Round 1 for the first time was "Why is there no Pop n music cabinet?" It would be appropriate if they had one game.>>327510>tfw no popn music on more recent consoles

I'm replaying Alan Wake and having a super comfy time while there's a cold wind outside and I'm here drinking hot tea with my cat purring beside me. Despite being an old game, I love the graphics and all the details they've put in the environments.
Now, I'm trying to collect all the coffee thermoses and manuscripts this time.
It's a shame that the sequel sucked so much.

Dumb questions but is it worth it to buy the switch if I don't have a TV ? I'm currently renting a tiny room and there's a shared tv in the livingroom but it's not like I can use it personally much.
I'm really tempted to get the Switch just for Animal Crossing but not sure how enjoyable it'd be if I could only use it on the portable screen.
I play Division and some other shooters, know some girls that are also into it, it's not uncommon.
What I noticed is that the lack of interese often comes from a lack of story or very repetitive gameplay (imo). But yes, I'm also surprised how little anons talk about fps, non-handheld or asian games (nothing wrong with that)
I play FPS games. When Battlefield V gets a discount I'm gonna buy it and play with female characters to trigger
the butthurt nerds.
dude, when the most recent doom game came out, i didn't get it because it seemed exactly like you said…repetitive, made for 12 year old boys, and then forgotten. but then i watched a guy play it at high volume on a high difficulty and realized has this feedback loop that awards aggressive behavior. that's the appeal…and i guess other FPSes have that appeal too, but only if you're an aggressive person, or in an aggressive mood. i got pissed once, played it for a bit, and felt better, but it's not my usual cup of tea.
does anyone else love dark souls 3?
File: 1542968685498.jpg (249.78 KB, 1000x625, ffiii.jpg)
I've been thinking of starting FFIII after not touching it since I was way younger, but am sort of figuring or afraid the story is gonna be complete garbage.
The art is cute and I'm looking forward to the class/job system again because I enjoyed it in FFV.
But… it's not your bf, it's a representation of a blizzard character that he plays as and you are not killing him. Would you cry like some animu heroine if you checkmated his king while playing chess?
Girl, you don't even sound uwu, but either 13 or mental. I doubt you should play any video games if you have such trouble divorcing games from reality.
>>328774> does anyone else love dark souls 3?
But for me it's DS2:SoFS > DS1 > DS3. But I like all of them, the first DS3 dlc was disappointing.
Of course, Bloodborne is better than all of them imo.
On that topic, did anyone play FS's Déraciné? It's VR only.
I never liked FPS games single or multiplayer. I do like Dark Souls, or S.T.A.L.K.E.R. which are considered to have overwhelmingly male players.
I'm looking forward to Last of Us II, I liked the first part and the gameplay that was shown on E3 seemed super fun. Unfortunately, a lot of my guy friend irl said they would pass because of pushed lesbianism and playing as a woman instead of Joel. Needless to say, I'm preordering the game asap. I just don't understand why it's such a big deal for them.
This is incredibly shoe0nhead>>328855
Yes!! I love Fable. The last one was kind of shitty, 2nd is best, but you can play in chronological order. They are cozy and very immersive for me.
They're decent games for what they are. I find them a bit too kiddy and simple, but I can see the appeal of them for people who prefer something more easy-going.
They're all set in the same universe, but don't have much of an ongoing story, so you can easily pick one up and play it stand-alone. Fable 2 is generally considered the best one.

"Dropsy is a non-traditional take on the classic point and click adventure formula starring the game’s perpetually carefree namesake clown as he explores a richly detailed world full of colorful characters and sinister secrets, doling out hugs along the way."
This is an extremely sweet and wholesome game and I recommend highly for anyone with a working nervous system. Dropsy the clown is the purest organism in existence, his visage the primary barrier to acceptance. Do it for Dropsy. (the soundtrack is gorgeous)https://store.steampowered.com/app/274350/Dropsy/

This game. This game has brought back my hopes of playing games. It’s scenery an detail and over all play is just beautiful. I’ve probably put 50-60 hours into it so far am barely touched the story. I’ve been so wrapped in hunting and bonding with my horses and getting out fits to make Arthur a handsome devil. Best thing is I have something to talk about with guys who I sometimes over hear talking about it. I’ve had it spoiled for me the story, so it hurts to try an finish the game but I’ll get there. Takin horses an bonding with them an petting dogs in cities are my favourite thing to do by far lol.
The story is very basic but it's not bad. I played it a long time ago and it was really hard because it takes way too much time to gain new levels and you can't save your game inside dungeons, no matter how big they are. The system of points assigned to some spells is annoying too if you want to mostly use mages or magic attacks. It's still a very good game, if you like JRPGs in general you'll like this one.When I say it's hard because you can't save in dungeons, I mean that you have at the end of the game you have to go through a big dungeon, you end up on the map so you can save your game, you then go through the crystal tower which is huge, you have a boss fight with a mandatory death to further the plot so DON'T TURN OFF your DS out of frustration. Then you have to explore the world of darkness with a lot of really strong bosses and then you have the final boss, or final bosses. If you can complete the game and beat the final boss, make sure you can charge the battery of your DS because I nearly lost all of my data since my DS nearly died on me during the last cutscene before the credits.>>329134
It's for the DS and the game has been ported to the PSP.
do you guys know of any games that are good to just explore the scenery, along with whatever the objective of the game is? i used to like exploring aion when high but they changed it and it's shit and the scenery is depressing now.>>329156
Any pop'n anons have DLC pack 1 for pop'n music portable 2 by chance? I haven't been able to find a working DL anywhere, but I do have the other 3 packs.>>329168
I mean… BoTW is pretty much the best game for this of all time. It's fucking gorgeous and basically all you ever do is fuck around and find cool shit like big dragons and apples. It alone was worth buying a switch for to me personally.
Seconding The Witcher III, I'm on my second playthrough (determined to do (almost) all of the sidequests and getting a better ending) and can't stop because walking around exploring the world and finding all kinds of stuff is just too much fun. The Blood & Wine DLC is great for this as well, I really love its lighting and it feels less gritty and more fairytale-like, if that's more up your alley.
Either way the graphics are beautiful.

This game had me on such an emotional rollercoaster. I just finished it, and man, what a ride.
At first when I started playing it it was a bit meh. If I had one minor complaint, that would be the controls. Sometimes they can be frustrating. However, the landscapes, the gushing wind, and most importantly the relationship between you and trico make this game awesome. When I started playing I thought it had nothing on Ico or SotC but now I can say that it makes a worthy successor.
I like it because the setting, while obviously borrowing a lot of typical fantasy and medieval tropes, felt original. The places all felt "real" in a way I barely ever see in games.
That being said I mostly enjoyed it so much because of the graphics and the fact I read the books as a kid and liked seeing familiar characters and monsters in a game. The gameplay isn't bad but nothing revolutionary.

Pls no bully, but did any anons used to play Minecraft? I know it’s sort of a meme now but it’s still a good game, imo.
3-5 years ago I used to play for hours on this one server, had a group of friends from there I used to have group skype calls with all the time, build shit together, etc. but I lost touch with all of them.

Any good detective games (solving a murder) you guys would recommend? I've played all Sherlocks and I crave something similar sooo much, I'm such a hoe for murder mysteries
I haven't played it yet, but I heard Observer was something akin to Sherlock Holmes.
Not sure how good it is but I'm planning to get it for holidays. It's described as a psychological thriller and you seem to solve crimes.
Call of Chtulu is another game where you solve a murder. It's Lovecraftian (duh). I haven't played it either but surely will because I have a soft spot for Lovecraft. Maybe someone else will be able to give more recs.
btw I love the Sherlock Holmes games too. I procrastinated my entire uni playing them and I even managed to make my non gamer friends get addicted to them.
All of the Broken Sword games are about solving mysteries, usually murder mysteries. I highly recommend them!
Also Still Life Part 1 (don't bother with Part 2, it's not very good) is a modern day murder mystery that lets you analyse crime scenes and do lots of procedural work. It's a lot of fun.
The Last Express is about solving the mystery of the death of your friend on board the Orient Express in the early 1900s. It has a very unique art style and time structure (the game takes place in real time, so you need to make sure you're in the right place at the right time in order to progress sometimes) that makes it very replayable. It's one of my favourites.
And it's an older game but the first Gabriel Knight game is also a fun murder mystery game set in New Orleans. I'd definitely recommend it.
woah i didnt know about these!! Im gonna play em, i love murder mysteries too.
my fave sort of thing like that has to be LA Noire. What a classic.
I spent a big part of high school on minecraft, some of the friends I made then are now IRL friends or really good internet friends. The server just went down in flames because the admins got tired of it but recently some members made a discord so we're back to hanging out. I loved the drama in the server too, it was pretty low key but fun (he said that she said kind of stuff, or people getting together and breaking up after meeting irl, etc, the little things)
I still think it's a great game, it's super wholesome too, I hope I'll play it with my future children.
I am both worried and excited, because, well, it's EA.
Also, that damn idol, I thought Meridith turned it into a sword and it's gone? Damn I need to replay DA2.
I'm also glad it's not coming out soon, I'd rather wait 3 years than get another mess like Inquisition (which wasn't bad at all, imo, but it had a lot more potential that they couldn't use because it was rushed)
This is why no one takes eSports seriously. His furry fans are cringe as fuck as well.>>335577
I don't like it either. It should've been Jack Frost! He's the mascot of the series ffs
>>335653>It should've been Jack Frost
I thought the same thing! Joker was such a lame choice.I unironically would've rather had sans than him.
The smash roster is going to be 70% literally who animu boys in a few years.
so sick of p5
Yes please, that's why I loved Origins so much. DAI felt like nothing you did mattered and like the breach didn't really affect anything too much, just a few demons/rift here and there, even DA2 felt somewhat darker than DAI.
But I'm worried that a lot of the fans would whine, bitch and moan about it because it would be "problematic
" and might have triggering
content (like the female city elf origin). Still, I hope it gets darker considering what Solas is up to.>>335655
Honestly I didn't get far either because it was so boring from the start and really painful to play. I can't believe I paid almost the full price for it.

Finally bought Spyro Trilogy, Grew up a complete spyro fag as I started out vidya with a Ps1 and Spyro, its been a really chill experience of nostalgia and 'well this feels/looks off', The fact that you can't turn off motion blur and (while this was a problem in the og game too) when you charge sometimes the camera auto focuses somewhere else so you end up charging a completely different direction. the camera itself is super sensitive if you dont have it in active mode and active mode you gotta sometimes fight it kek
I will probably come back to post about it again once im done with it cause I need to see how every crevice of this game turned out, outta sheer autism for my beloved childhood franchise (inb4 sperg over Riptos Rage lmao)
But I would be lying out of my ass if I said I wasn't enjoying myself & hoping for patches.

i'm not even sure if this is the best place to ask, but one of my favorite lp channels just announced that they've disbanded and will no longer be uploading new videos. anybody have recommendations on gaming youtubers that they like?
>>340725>Best friends Play
that's actually the channel i was talking about haha. they've finally decided to call it quits after nine years unfortunately. on the bright side, the guys all have side channels so it's not so bad i guess.
i'd never tried watching cry's stuff before. the fact that he had a thread on /ot/ for a bit made me a bit wary.
I'm a fucking moron, anon. I'm so sorry. I was at work all day and just got the news/watched their final video. I'm pissed and sad at the same time. It seems like Pat is the main reason this all happened because of how incredibly nonchalant he is.
There's also suspicions of pat's gf Paige/Peach saliva being the cause of this. It's really awful. I wish Woolie and Matt just kept going without Patt… Nearly 10 years gone, and for what?
I worked them about 6 years now and it feels like losing a good youtube channel since i dont watch any other LPs.
Cry is okay, but just okay. He also doesn't upload on the regular anymore. Watching his old stuff is fun. I recommend his LP of The Cat Lady (one of my favorite horror games. I got to play it when it came out, but Cry played it a few years ago)
Also his Walking Dead LPs are okay. He's good, but doesn't upload nearly as much now.
I love kevin too!
Rtgame seems like hes just putting up stream highlights, but i dont really watch streams that much so i just stick to kevin.
I only watch john wolfe and game grumps(if im interested in the game)

Faeria killed itself.
A great but unknown card game with amazing art.
It used to be f2p but now it's p2p and DLC based.
The number of players is lower and lower. 130 playing atm.
To play it again I'd need 26€ worth of DLC to have all the new 80 cards, and if I were a new player I'd also have to buy the game, which adds 20 bucks.
I can't even tell people to just try it out anymore as it's too much of an investment.
In short, I am sad.
I've read that Matt's wife is kind of an sjw and has started shit in the past, so some people think she's more to blame than pat's gf. Personally, I think it's mostly Matt's lack of chemistry with Pat and Woolie that led to this.
Everyone seems to have different theories on why they're breaking up. The way people keep mixing up Matt and Pat's names sure isn't helping lol.
Honestly, Matt was phoning it in for a while in the lps and podcasts while his solo channel had his full attention. Even in his LPs with Woolie he was just not how he used to be so I don't think the blame solely lies with Pat. Plus his gf is the one that vague posted on Twitter about Pat and tried to stir up drama. I'm more inclined to think it was his gf and not Pat's that caused this on top of other reasons. Just watching Matt's channel with her in some makes me uncomfortable with how much she talks over him and sort of ensures he agrees with her. But eh, no one really knows what happened.
I'm so upset about the disbandment because I can't get into any other lper. Tbfp had the only kind of humor I could tolerate. I wish they could've gone out with just the video since it was so graceful but Liam soured the goodbye with his twitter ramblings.
Both Matt and Pat seemed whipped in general but the gf definitely seemed worse on Matt's end.
I never liked Liam, so I chose to ignore him after his left. I feel like Matt us going to try following but I doubt any of their humor will hold up without a second man to bounce off of.
Both are def worth it!
I got my 3DS after I bought my Switch. I think the 3DS s great because it has a HUGE library of games. It's not the newest system BUT as I said, many, many great games with remasters of old classics. At times I use it more than my Switch
The Switch on the other hand doesn't have a that much games but has def some gems that are worth to get the system. I personally loved Breath of The Wild, my biggest reason why I got a Switch. Besides BOTW I loved Bayonetta 1+2, Mario Odyssey and Captain Toad Treasure Tracker (lol). I've only played the Demo but I read a lot about Octopath Traveler and it sounds like something that you could like. (Currently on Sale at the eShop).
Both have a good reasons to be purchased.
switch will be. games like mario party are fucking awesome and the touch function controls are amazing.
i really feel like they pushed switch out way too early so they could kill the wii U, but my only problem with it is the small library.
Can't say much about the Switch since I don't have it (yet…) but I cannot recommend the 3DS enough! It's absolutely worth it to me. Like >>344893
said, the library is massive and I'm sure you'll find tons of games to keep you occupied. Plus the hacking scene is really great if you're into that.
If I were you, I'd get a good deal on a refurbished 3DS (or 2DS if you don't mind giving up some features to save more money) to get your Nintendo fix. Set aside your money and get the Switch once there are a larger amount of games that catch your eye, it's the hot new system and it isn't going anywhere.
I always liked Nintendo cause it's easy to travel with and most games are relaxing and lowkey. Currently, I'm working abroad so the switch and 3DS are perfect for me.
I'd love to get a PS4 though but I need to settle properly somewhere first.
On that note, I just got Let's go, Eevee and while the game has been dumbed down, I like how chill and realistic it got in a way, with pokemons roaming around. I thought I wouldn't like it that much but honestly it's enjoyable.

Samefag, it's a horror stealth game and there are lots of explorations and I guess sort of puzzles. I loved the story and I often think of the game.
It's by the creators of Amnesia.
Also, GOG is worth supporting since they're anti DRM and there is no online activation once you download the game. They also have games that run on other OS like Ubuntu or Mac.

>>345592>freeshop is kill
Lol I had no idea about that since I got all the games I wanted from there before it died. I homebrewed my 3ds right when soundhax was released. Rip :( Guess playing pirated 3ds games online might suck now too.
I'm sure it's still easy to get cfw then find CIA files for games and install them through FBI though. Not as ridiculous as freeshop, but very easy none the less. DLC might be another story. Anyone know if the Wii U still has a nice hack?
(I hope this is alright) I have a working bios that I put in a google drive if you want it. When I went to find the file through pcsx2 it says it's a Japan bios? I'm not entirely sure why I chose that, it's been a really long time, but I can at least confirm that it has worked with all the USA games I've played, including kh2.https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Rmp50jiem888h8nUUCvzBxGYJESP4bNp/view?usp=sharing
I assume you have a copy of kh2 already, but if not, I have a working iso if you need it.

OMG thank you soo much!!!
If it's not too much to ask I'd appreciate the ISO as well

Posting because I want to hear opinions about Yoko Taro. I was a huuuge fan when Gestalt came out but since Automata I feel kinda conflicted.
Maybe it's because a lot of really unpleasant people flocked to him and project his views on him because of the 2B lewds thing. I'm mostly feeling meh about it because he didn't make any distinction between regular porn art and degrading one, and it's especially sad when you look at 2B's story and the themes of Automata. Another one of his characters was revealed recently to have been abused and forced to crossdress as a child- the company in charge released a dakimakura of the character and the popularity got boosted ten times.
I know he has a dark sense of humor, but these things make me a bit sad. Basically I'm butthurt because I take fictional characters seriously and want some respect for them.

I loved Gestalt. Gotta be honest, Automato was a huge let down, it didn’t have any of the charm the first game had. The characters weren’t a interesting, the world was a bit meh while pretty, and the musical score is so lacking when you listen to the first one. I was really disappointed after I finished my first play through and tbh don’t have the heart to play it again - I know some people will say ‘it gets soo much better later!!’ but entertainment should capture your heart soon into the story, I have a hard time giving entertainment a second chance when they were shitty at the start/first time around

Oh, nothing special new, the joke about "send me a zip with all lewds of her" came up again and he commented something like western creators being too uptight about such things. I like sexy art, but one thing is praising good art from creators and another is just looking at a dump that also includes her being harmed or used as a toy. Might seem selfish but that kinda kills the illusion of caring for those characters, him joking he'll put her in any collab, even candy crush if he gets the money doesn't help.>>353684
Glad to see others that feel that way, I really don't want to sound pretentious and I know lots of people loved it because it was their first Taro game. I finished all routes once and wanted to replay it in Japanese but didn't have the energy, it DOES get better around route C but it didn't hit me as hard as NieR.

I enjoyed Kaine's personality but I think all the excuses around her outfit (she's intersex! She needs to feel feminine! Or, it's a parody) are just that, excuses. Drakengard 1 and 2 managed to have quite sensible female designs. I think these designs were changed to be pornier in the rest of Taro's games simply because it would sell better (and of course a horny male design team.) It's a pity.
Check the crazy playable female character in D1 and compare with Zero: https://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-04/dg-arioch1.html

I really enjoyed her character overall.
I'm kinda buying the Kaine parody thing only because Replicant Nier had that shitty wannabe Final Fantasy look, oof. That's why I prefer dad Nier even if it wasn't written with him in mind, he fits the band of weird misfits better and instead of being a criticism at Japan's brother-sister trope his relationship with his daughter seems sweeter. But I digress.
Agreed with you on the designs becoming sluttier and I miss the early drakengard designs, I need to play 2 finally.
Another thing that comes to mind is how a female writer brought up some themes like bro Nier snapping at Yonah under pressure and saying she's a burden, or how Emil feels isolated because of his sexuality and Kaine's internal struggles- but it was "too dark/real" for Yoko. >>353778
Whoa, I'm in love.

Vaguely related but anyone here played the first Drakengard/Drag-On Dragon? I am really interested in giving it at shot cause of how dark it is even though I dislike the creators stating they based one character on Rei Ayanami cause she's a girl without personality, basically
. I would love to hunt all 3 games though it might be a bit hard, especially with the third one. Wonder if it's worth it.

I have both of these CDs, I keep them exposed next to my monitor.
They're great, I love just having them sitting there.
I honestly don't mind about the lewds thing.
I understand all this parody of japanese media, sexualizing in almost a ridiculous way some characters. I might sound as I justify Yoko's work too much, it may be, but I carefully thought throught it since I've first known of the series years ago.
Speaking of which, I think first Drakengard is my favourite game, not as much as a game, but as an artwork. It might not be enjoyable gameplaywise, but its repetitiveness in the context, the visuals, music and characters created one of the most grimdark stories I have ever read while I am a huge grimdark slut (please, suggest more good grimdark pieces).
Automata would be my last favourite if Sinoalice didn't exist. I found Automata kind of bland and a void body of what Gestalt/Replicant was. I wish it were more pushed as his previous games were.
Sinoalice is just a badly designed game who lost everything that made the game interesting at the beginning. Stories are so cringe, characters so boring and the feel of it is just a moneygrabbing garbage for japanese men to fap to.

Style-wise I prefer sinoalice because it's more in the fantasy direction and I like some of the characters but the gameplay is indeed awful and the character designer is a lolicon with very sketchy tastes.
The only reason I'm playing is because I can get all characters I want from the gacha just by playing casually. I was so angry at Yoko when he hyped up the Automata collab by saying he cried while writing it- and then nothing actually happened. I still find Cinderella entertaining and I loved watching people flip their shit at some plot revelations about their pure faves.
Forgot to say I love the style too, might not be unusual for the era but the western influence and dark colours are nice.
As for grimdark games, I suppose you played Blood Omen from the Legacy of Kain series or Soul Reaver 1? If not, it will seem very edgy on the surface but it touches upon some interesting themes and plays with the player: like at first you feel sorry but eventually you accept you're on top of the food chain as a vampire and become more cruel. Soul Reaver 1 has some top notch voice acting and nice dark boss designs.
Otherwise I guess The Cat Lady, Pathologic, Rule of Rose etc. But some were already mentioned in the thread.

Very similar to sinoalice. Same traditional-ish, fantasy art style. Dark colour palette. The outifts weren't sexualized though. Pic related is the closest I could find

anyone else like the style boutique/style savvy series? Its a guilty pleasure of mine, I’ve bought every entry since the first one came out when I was a kid.
i fucking love it. i tried playing trendsetters again and i realized the game takes so long to load everything. it was good when it first came out, but it's so dated now, sadly. i love fashion forward and styling star, though.
i remember feeling like there wasn't a lot to do styling star when it first came out, but after a couple weeks of playing it, then it started getting better.
i really do wish the mens clothing was mixed in with the womens. i hate going to the other shop because everything is already there so i don't feel like i accomplished anything.

so nintendo filed a trademark for style savvy recently, just before the new year. i'm excited to see what comes out of it!

Which graphics do you prefer? I dislike the plastic-y 3D models of the third game and the second game looks too cute and childish. Trendsetters looked more mature and realistic (as realistic as it gets anyway).
