I mostly play PC, but have a NES, PS2 and a 3DS.
Anyone else like horror games? What are some good suggestions?
I'm playing Pokemon Sun now, it's great. I've played for 10 hours by now, I love how the game looks, the characters' models not being chibi reminds me of Pokemon Colosseum and there are a lot of references to Pokemon RBY so it makes me feel nostalgic. The only things I dislike is the long and boring tutorial and how fighting against more than 1 pokemon makes the game so slow.
My backlog is full of JRPGs, I'll try to play as many of them as possible during the summer break, especially FF10, FF10-2, and both Bravely Default and Second. I have some SMT games on my 3DS but I'm not in the mood for them these days.>>80
Reading that list of games made me realize I only play Japanese games.
My laptop is crappy and I don't own any powerful consoles, so I don't play much, but
>Bioshock 1&2 (didn't like Infinite)>Animal Crossing: New Leaf>Secret of Mana>Secret of Mana 2>Secret of Evermore>Left 4 Dead 2>The Sims (mostly building)>Ace Attorney>Zelda: Link's Awakening, Link To The Past & Link Between Worlds>Super Mario All-Stars kek>Tetris/Tetrinethttps://www.gamespot.com/articles/secret-of-mana-series-coming-to-nintendo-switch/1100-6448857/
I just found this while looking for a post pic and hnnnngh I want Secret of Mana to be popular again so bad so I can nerd out about it and see cosplay and art.
Fave games:>Fantasy Life>Ico, Shadow of the Colossus>Metal Gear Solid 3>Fate of Atlantis (Mostly nostalgia though as it was my first and only game for years and I played it to death back before gamefaqs and shit)>Legend of Zelda>Jet Set Radio>Animal Crossing>League (I don't think of it as a fave but I still play regularly)>Advance Wars>FF Tactics Advance
Games I want to play:>The Last Gaurdian>KH Games after 1, 2, and CoM>FFXV>Thimbleweed Park>Night in the Woods>Beyond: Two Souls>Ace Attorney games after the first two>Heavy Rain>The Last of Us (Reading this thread reminded me of the last few)>A bunch of other stuff I forgot
I recently picked up Stardew Valley again and it's consuming all my free time. I'm pretty sure when the multiplayer patch hits it'll just ruin my life.>>88>Secret of Mana
Yesss, I making my bf play though the series with me (just on the first game now) so I can get that co-op experience I never got as a kid.
I FINALLY got Skyrim set up just how I want it, on my own computer, for the first time. I have made quite extensive setups on other people's computers and sunk many hours into it. Now it's all mine!! I haven't slept much
Gamecube is the best console of all time with the most classic games on it but we all know PC is our beloved babypie right now.
I just bought Gauntlet: Dark Legacy again for my Gamecube (80 bucks on ebay) because my fucking PS2 DIED out of nowhere and is making this loud roaring sound! I haven't even touched it in years but thanks, Sony.
>tfw I won't be able to play San Andreas on it anymore
Even my SNES is still going strong and that's twice as old. Nintendo really knows how to make consoles last.
Wind Waker is my favorite game ever and I have a giant hard on for the Zelda franchise in general. I do really like medieval rpgs as well. I was wondering if anyone else here plays games like Heroes 2, Mount & Blade (Bannerlord is coming out soon aaaah), Baldur's Gate, Divine Divinity, etc.
OH and I don't usually enjoy hack and slash games because they're so repetitive but I picked up Bayonetta when it came out on the PC and that shit was so cash! Totally challenging and fun, really recommend it if you guys haven't ever played it.
There's too many games to talk about so I'm just going to end this post. Sorry for rambling!
My all time two favourite games are basically the only two moods I have. Majora's Mask and Devil May Cry 4.
Also I spend around 300+ hours in Stardew Valley right now. Reminds me of times where I was addicted to Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon when I was younger.>>97
HoMM3 and 5 are better.
I agree 3 is better idk why I added 2. Haven't played 5 though.
>>101>Devil May Cry 4
I wish I had more time to play games. I used to play 4-6 hours per day, but then I started going to the gym and got a job. Now I'm at 1 hour per week and maybe 2 on the weekends. :(
The only game I'm currently playing is Guild Wars 2 since it's an mmo and I often prefer them to sp games.
Other games that I love/like;>The Witcher>Assassin's Creed series>Final Fantasy>The Walking Dead>The Last Remnant
I'm really picky when it comes to games
Currently playing Guild Wars 2 since with studies/life i don't have time for an actual game with sotry, kinda getting bored of it because i'm F2P scrub ranger and my guilds have established friendships and idk how to participate without being a bother.
Looking to finish persona 5 and Witcher 3 as soon as i have time since i left them both midway. (The withcer 3 about a year ago lol)
Also waiting for the prompto dlc to drop on FFXV. I personally liked FFXV a lot, i can see why people complain about it, but it was a very chill game if you forget that it's final fantasy.
Favorite games:>Final Fantasy IX >Kingdom Hearts saga (played all except 3DS one because i could not justify purchase a console for only one game and the new ps4 remake is too expensive for what it is)>Life is Strange (i cannot wait for season 2)
Saints Row 2 (before it went all edgy and shit)>Dragon Age series (especially origins, 2 was great, inquisition had amazing characters but it was a drag gameplay wise) >Mass effect series (andromeda was shit but i'm still hoping they'll release the quarian ark dlc to save it a little, if they let the franchise die because they handed the game to a shit team i'll be so mad)>Final Fantasy Crisis core (i hope the in the ffVII remake they'll touch more on Zack's story insetad of what we got in the original FFVII)>Sly cooper series>Sims 2 (spent over 500 hours on it since i got the complete edition for free, then i lost all my mods, got salty and stopped playing, deciding wether to get back into it or get 3 or 4, but esepcially 4 seems really devoid of content and expensive to get into)
>Games i want to play:>Night in the woods >FF XII remake>The saboteur (have it in my origins acc, but never got far because life got in the way but it seemed very fun)>Tales of Berseria (played a lot of tales games, but never paid full price for them, so i am waiting for it to get a major discount)>Finish Witcher 3 and DLCs when i have time>Finish p5>Spyro>Zelda games>stardew valley>Ni no kuni 2>Read ded Redemption>Ico>Suidoken II>FF VI
Any recccomendations for chill games that do not requiere a lot of attention? Kinda want a game to just unwind when studies get too far up my ass and not worry about saving the world or whatever.
>which ones do you dislike or disappointed you?
I liked Andromeda the first time i played it and i found the drama it caused to be overblown, but fuck if it isn't very rough.
I can barely start a new playthrough because there would be no difference other than i am smart asshole instead of a snarky one. I played the OT to hell and back and never got tired of it, but this one oh man.
The OT did not have amazing writing, but compared to this it was 100 times better, the Angara were so shittily written.
Jaal "we value family and show our feeling a lot, did you know we show our feelings a lot and we are very into family, did i talk about our feelings or do i need to remember you about our feelings" like brother what are you comparing it to? We just met for the first time, how do you know about our human customs maybe we are very open with our feelings too.
First contact was also very handwaved in.
Or cora "i am an assari huntress, remeber the manuals that i got when i was an assari huntress, did i tell you i was an asari huntress" Don't explain me your personality the first time we met, just let me discover it like a normal human being.
When you compare the MEA characters to a character like Solas or Dorian it really shows how much of a shit team this game got.
Also the Archon an kett were shit villains, i hoped they would go more into the remnant route because they seem actually interesting, but maybe they though it would be too similar to the OT.
The romances were… okay, but the preference for certain characters really did show. I first went for Jaal and loved it, though going for Reyes or Liam next, but surprise surprise they barely get any scenes that are different from the Friends with Benefits route.
Kinda hoping the DLC will be at least on the level of Tresspasser for DAI, where it basically saves a game (also hoping for quarian husbando to make up for kal'reegar never being a squadmate)
The only games I'm actively playing right now are Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Fantasy Life. Just restarted my AC town to get a nice layout.
Also, I'm looking forward to fucking Splatoon 2! So ready. I may not have much to do with my Switch right now after finishing Breath of the Wild, but it's such a cool console.
Favorite games (in no particular order):
>Rune Factory 3 and 4
>Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, Another Wonderful Life, Tree of Tranquility, and Animal Parade
>Dragon Age Origins
>The Sims 2 and 3
>The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, Spirit Tracks
>Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Gamecube ver
>The Long Dark
>Age of Empires II and III
>SimCity 4 and 3000
>Final Fantasy III remake
>Pokemon Pearl, HeartGold, and Moon
I like MMOs a lot but I don't keep up with the scene enough to know what's coming up or what's even worth playing. Last one I played was Black Desert Online. It was pretty much my dream game, but the rng system and cash shop wrecked it. If anyone has any suggestions pls tell.
As for disappointments, I'm sure I've had a lot, but recently the worst for me was Hearthlands. I was and still am a huge fan of city building games, so when people were raving about Hearthlands being the next Pharaoh, I almost shit myself. It's unfortunately quite glitchy, boring, and hand-holdy. Hideous art style to top it all off. I regret buying it.
Favorite games/franchises in no particular order:>pokemon>ace attorney (I didn't play any of the spinoffs though)>hotel dusk and the last window>megami tensei (mainline, DDS1 and 2 and Persona)>sword of mana>fire emblem awakening and fates>final fantasy 2, 3 and 4>rhythm paradise>animal crossing new leaf>sonic adventure 1 and 2 on the gamecube>super mario as a whole>metal gear solid 2>the first dangan ronpa
>games I want to play (I either already have them or want to buy them later):>persona 5>the zero escape games>dangan ronpa v3>smt 4 apocalypse, smt strange journey, devil survivor 1 and 2>the legend of zelda as a whole, I couldn't get into it for a bunch of reasons before>fire emblem games that aren't awakening or fates, I was about to get a second-hand copy of sacred stones some weeks ago but I hesitated and didn't buy it. I really regret it now>bravely default and bravely second>rhythm paradise megamix>smt5 or whatever the smt game on the switch will be>splatoon 2>bayonetta>final fantasy as a whole
I'll get a job this summer and I feel like it's a good opportunity to buy either a Switch or a PS3 and a TV set once I'm paid. I'm especially interested in the Switch since I like some nintendo series a lot, but maybe nintendo will lower its price later.>>91>Ace Attorney games after the first two
I really hope you didn't accidentally find spoilers on the series. I think you'll like the third game a lot since it's a direct sequel to the second game, it's starting from the 4th game that people have mixed feelings about the series. By the way, you should try to play Ghost Trick, it's by Shu Takumi too and it's really fun.
wanna play some co-op secret of mana sometime?
So jealous, I can't get a group to play gauntlet dark legacy, I managed to scrap a group together for the n64 version but absolutely no emulator can run it and the ps1 version is inferior with only 2 player co op :(
Nah, I've seen characters and superficial stuff form later games, but I only know the story of the games I played.
Oooh, I love adventure mystery games! Cute little pomeranians are a plus.
>>178>hotel dusk and the last window
Anon, I love you. It's so rare to find other HD/LW fans, you've made my day.
you should give Another code: two memories a try too! It's pretty good
I just play by myself honestly. No one irl would ever want to play this old ass game with me so I just grind on my own.
A-At least I get the screen to myself and more treasure.
Well I guess it's because these game didn't sell very well in the West? I bought them second-hand last year and played them during the summer break one after the other, I had a lot more fun than I excepted. Maybe because it's one of these very few video games I played before finding any spoilers about it on accident. I plan on beating other games this summer but I feel like replaying them too if I can.
I'm just replaying Umineko for the second time- I'm about 20 hours in and I've fallen in love with it all over again.
Sorry, hit reply way too early!
I've also been playing a lot of Binding of Isaac and Rouge Legacy recently. I used to hate rougelikes until recently when something just clicked and I 'got gud'
I'll play with you anon, I've been playing phantasy star alone lately so iktf. Here's a link to get in contact if you feel interested https://discord.gg/GpGpUWx
Hopefully we can get a few users from this thread as everyone seems nice here and have pretty good taste too
Have played the last few months;
> Stardew valley
> feel the snow
> Town of salem
> Darkest Dungeon
> Alien swarm; reactive drop
> Heroes of the storm
> the sims 4
> Left 4 Dead 2
I want to finish all the games I own but I end up just playing stuff like stardew valley for days or overwatch.
>>204> I want to finish all the games I own but I end up just playing stuff like stardew valley for days or overwatch.
Same girl, same, just sub league for ow.
Yesss sorry for the late response, I didn't think it'd get a reply! I'll join the Discord link if I can find you there? >>91
Omg enjoy! Who do you play as?
Mostly PC and Nintendo handhelds
>HBS Shadowrun series
>D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die
>Fire Emblem franchise, particularly the GBA ones
>Harvest Moon franchise
I want to finish FE Awakening soon so I can get started on the Fates games. Also want to finish Wasteland 2 but I spend so much time in between plays I forget what I was doing.
I've just started this solo and it's so boring, does it get any better or should I just drop it. Loving Civ V
Forget the 3ds smt games play the DS game Strange Journey it's hands down the best one>>80
Dead Space 1 for sure, I've been (trying) to play it lately, too spooky. Btw did you play the original Alice? >>95
mods I hope anon>>97
>I really do like medieval rpgs
Then you should play medievil ;)>>114
You can play Phantasy Star or Runescape with me anon, or we can just play Civ IV for a thousand hours or so and never complete one game. Also why FF3? FF5 is superior to it in every way, practically makes 3 obsolete>>97>>187
why aren't you playing with me yet anon, Blue Valkyrie is waiting to gather some runestones>>178>metal gear solid 2 your favourite
I love you, everybody always gives me disgusted looks when I say 2 was my favourite, it's not my fault the game is designed superbly and the metal gear rays fight on European Extreme is the hypest shit
Due to a raid by r9k we had to shut down temporarily but new link is up! https://discord.gg/wPx74qn
Did you watch yesterday's Pokémon Direct? What are your opinions on this? I'm excited for Ultra Sun Moon as long as it's not a third version of Sun/Moon. Some people are really pissed that they didn't announce a DPPT remake instead.>>215
Are the GBA Fire Emblem good? I want to try them someday but it's not my priority right now. The older fans are obnoxious as fuck sometimes so I have no idea if they just exaggerate when they praise the games like genwunners for Pokémon or if they're actually much better than the 3DS Fire Emblem.>>222>Forget the 3ds smt games play the DS game Strange Journey it's hands down the best one
I actually have a copy of Strange Journey that I used for 2min to see if the cartridge worked well. I want to focus on the 3DS games first because I have a bunch of games I haven't beaten yet, so I might as well play them one after another. I'm a bit salty I bought it some months before Atlus announced Deep Strange Journey.
Also still me, I loved MGS2, I played MGS1 to 3 so far, and I had the most fun with MGS2. MGS3 had too many menus and small things that made it less fun, but still a good game. >the metal gear rays fight on European Extreme is the hypest shit
I only played it on normal because I'm shit at MGS but the boss fight against the rays was so cool.
nothing personnel …
The Gba fire emblems are much muuuuuuch better, people give modern FE shit because although it did save a dying franchise it did so through easing of difficulty and arguably dumbing down plot, most importantly though was throwing emphasis on waifus. Theads went from posting critical hit gifs, arguing about best lord (hector btw) and posting hilarious edited scripts to talking about how amazing tharjas ass and feet are overnight
That aside Don't forget to play the gamecube FE too! Ikes adventure is a really good one
Also if you suck at mgs god help you on peace walker, that game is veeeeeeeery difficult solo (I'm assuming you bought the mgs hd collection)
People also give shit to the people who liked Awakening and Fates, it's pretty annoying. Not my fault I was too poor to have a GBA back then and I didn't even know some games where localised (I played SSBM and thought no games where localised, and I thought Marth was a girl too, like a bunch of people)
I don't care that much about stories in video games usually, I like good stories but I see it more like a plus. But I had to admit that FE Fates' story was disappointing, it could have been great but instead it was just Corrin, Xander and Azura being stupid and explanations hidden behind DLCs. And I don't care that much about waifu things either, I like that the options to marry whatever character is here and I like that it's also optional. For the few time I lurked /feg/ it seemed more like it was one or two guys talking about Tharja's butt and 99% of the other posters telling him to stfu.
>Don't forget to play the gamecube FE too!
I know it's pretty expensive and I can't emulate anything on my laptop so I won't do it now. I want to play Echoes next, unless I find a copy of a GBA game before.
>(I'm assuming you bought the mgs hd collection)
Yes, but for the PS Vita, so I don't have Peace Walker, and when I'll get it it'll be the PSP version. I heard the controls on the PSP weren't as good as HD Peace Walker.
So E3 approaches.
What games are you guys hoping they would announce this year? What are you hoping to see updates on?
I swear if they don't give us a release date for KH3 and they show us a little 2 min trailer with coming soon at the end again, i will cry. I also hope they show a little more of the FF VII remake, since the first episode was supposed to drop at the end of this year, but i'm not gonna get excited for it because most likely it won't lol.
also kinda hoping the yarnie studio (and nervous dude) would make a comeback this year, that man was so cute and uravel was a pretty fun game
I want announcements for games on the Switch, especially more details about the new SMT. It's not confirmed yet that it'll be SMT5 but since the next game on the 3DS is confirmed to be a remake of Strange Journey I expect the one on the Switch to be a brand new entry. I don't have a Switch yet but I know I will.
Anyone playing Persona 5?
I'm struggling to find the motivation to finish the final boss. I love Persona but I feel like this game dragged on. I don't want this to be another game I got to the end of and then just forgot about. HELP MOTIVATE ME.
Devil may cry 5 is gonna be my highlight, especially after last e3 dissapointed with god of war
No more heroes and whatever platinum will be working on next should be great
Forever crying that I can't afford a Switch. I desperately want to play the new mario, crash bandicoot, and zelda. I'm already ready for a new animal crossing game and not the mobile app thats coming out or something like happy home designer. Let's face it, it's already been 5 years since the release of New Leaf. I'm hoping that will be one of their surprises that's going to be announced at E3.
I play Destiny. I love it, but it's gotten boring recently. I hope the sequel has enough content to be entertaining through periods of no updates.
My favorite thing about the series is its lore, though. I think a novel series would be really cool.
I once took a break for it of about 1 month when i was getting kinda bored of it i was in the Futaba,
dungeon and came back and loved it back instantly. So maybe take a break of it? Don't force yourself, most games i force myself to play without breaks when i start to get demotivated (like yakuza 5 or witcher 3) i ended up not finishing.
I found Shido
dungeon to be extremely dragged on and annoying. The mouse
parts were especially boring and annoying and a obvious attempt to pad more time in (hey were kinda cute in that form with their masks).
I am currently awaiting for his change of heart while building up my confidants. This dungeon took my excitement about NG+ into the shitter. All the bosses were also too easy (maybe because i had high lvl personas thanks to max strength?) i beat both and pancake man with a Raphael (phys parts) and Cybele/Satan (mag parts)
in less than 10 minutes each without a single death.
Also until you get the Kawakami
confidant to level 10, the time restrictions are severely annoying. A whole day/evening for making a single coffee? What the absolute fuck MC.
Even with her, they still are, dude you walked around your school today doing story cutscenes? YOU BETTER SLEEP FOR A WEEK AND LOSE 7 EVENINGS.
I love love love this game, the gameplay is fun, the music is amazing, the story is engaging and the design is superb, and most characters while trope-y are not annoying or one-dimensional with a constant reminder punch line (meat? anyone?).
It's my GOTY and probably made it's way into my top 10 if not 3 of all time, but seriously, if the end game (please no spoilers, even minor, i am still in early December) is as tiresome as the S. dungeon, ufff boy.
I am currently farming reapers in flu season and trying to get my compendium to 100% (currently 90%) + all confidants possible before the end date and i'm having more fun farming shit than the 8 hours i spent on that annoying ass dungo. Also, why is Yusuke not a waifu you can date, his chemistry was amazing with the MC.
Yes! All of this.
dungeon was when I started getting antsy for it to end, and I didn't really experience that in any prior Persona games. I also was overpowered, as I did the Reaper despair trick earlier and just sort of ran through everything. Nothing really was challenging for me past that, but then again, I'm not playing on difficult or anything, lol. The most fun I had in the ending months was fusing Persona and ranking up confidants.
Luckily, I maxed out Kawakami first so I got the special massage
early. I also found Chihaya's [spoiler]confidant boosts[/spoilers] helpful, near the end of the game.
I don't know if I'll do a NG+ for awhile. Definitely on my list, eventually.
God dammit, I can't delete posts? I meant to quote >>289
. I lost a number in there.
Anyone else into private WoW servers? I play on Elysium, and I'm enjoying the grind so far.
Anybody else playing FFXIV? The upcoming expansion Stormblood is being released in 7 days on June 20th and I'm pretty hype.
Mind if I dump some screenshots from my time in the game so far? FFXIV really is just so stunning, I want to share it with everybody (and potentially entice others into a subscription).
This is my Miqo'te WHM, Arris. Just a shame SE decided to obliterate my main class in the upcoming expansion :'D
Used to play on Molten WoW servers. Was fun until I hit the cap, did a few achivs and got bore quickly because I played alone.>>293
I was in the closed beta, was fun until the servers crashed lol
I like the game but something about the animations is sort of off putting. Can't really put my finger on it. Other than that the game seems great. If I had a secure job I'd probably be playing it.
Started playing DA: Inquisition a few days ago and am wondering why I haven't done so sooner. I'm really enjoying it and taking my time with exploring.
But it also looks like I managed to piss of a few people with some of my choices lol nice
You don't really have to spam the thread with screenshots, anon
Last one is me on a date with bae, who tanks as a Paladin catslut :>
Oh sorry, it's just that the visuals are absolutely gorgeous and you know when you're really enthusiastic about something you want to share it with everybody?
So, most of this E3 was recycled garbage and Sony was probably the worst offender.
I won't deny i am very pumped for Shadow of the Colossus remake, but nothing else seemed that interesting or innovative.
Most of the shit they showed i could have seen on youtube from last year's conference kek.
I was kinda hoping for more stuff from Square Enix, but they gave us a fucking VR fishing simulator for fucks sake at least show a trailer for good dlc or another trailer of KH3 fighting the titan.
>FF VII remake
>The last of us 2
>New exclusive titles
>Shadow of the colossus remake
>recycled trailers, a fishing simulator, "look we've got monster hunter now!!!" and… spidermam for the grand finale.
I was so disappointed.
From the whole E3 only caught my attention Ni no Kuni 2 (again, last year announcement), Anthem (but not much, because i am wary of bioware now lol) and SOC.
Did they announce any game you were waiting for?
Is that the franchise which features a stern, buxom arachnoid-matron as its protagonist?
Oh and of course, life is strange the prequel.
Kinda hoped they would show life is strange 2, but i'll take anything from that franchise.
IDK how they will pull the power thing with Chloe or if they'll take it off completely.
Also supposedly it's not made by dotnod? (or so i've read) so i am kinda ehhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
My boyfriend told me about the Life is Strange prequel announcement last night and I'm very underwhelmed.
I was really hoping that when a new addition to the series got announced it'd be an entirely new story with a new roster of characters, but what exactly is the purpose of this prequel? The first game already wrapped up everything in a neat little package, and one of the main themes of the game is being able to manipulate your choices in order to alter fate. We already know that Rachel ends up buried in a scrapyard 3 feet under the dirt
, so what possible mystery could this have?
As far as I understood it, it's Rachel and Chloes story, so probably how they met and what their lives were. Maybe because it wasn't too detailed explained in the first game. Or just to answer some player questions.
Somehow I feel it will be a long sob story, but still interesting. Damn the last episode was of the first game was messed up, hope they can create something equally exciting with this.
There's also going to be a bonus episode about Max, where you can play as her one last time.
This year was a weird e3
>ubisoft of all companies came out with the best presentation
>pc gaming had a really solid lineup
>nintendo did alright with treehouse
>xbox and sony did equally shit, 1, maybe 2 games that looked decent
>ea horrid as always
one day E3 might be good again, but it wont be anytime soon
Ugh, the E3 piqued my interest in video games again but I can't ever go back to the community. Video game communities are so fucking retarded and ridiculously obnoxious its unreal.
Just because you have shit decision making doesn't mean every community is bad, general rule is avoid popular game communities however if you choose to ignore that rule there's always more than one to choose from, get a feel of all the chats and see which is comfiest
>>316>Bethesda>"have some more Skyrim"
I've been in the video game community for more than a decade so I've had more than my fair share of communities. Maybe your particular video game interests makes the communities YOU'VE been in non-shitty, but the ones that are based off Nintendo or Sega games tend to be especially since /v/tards have spilled into every corners of it
>>334>Nintendo and Sega have especially shitty communities
Uh… not that anon but where are these "v-tards"? Nintendo and Sega are the most mainstream communities consisting of families, kids, and old school players who are pretty chill adults. I could see league, cod, or steam communities being toxic and meme-y but really? Nintendo?
Exactly, most casual (mainstream) players aren't going to be on a messageboard or website dedicated to the game series they're playing.
Many /v/tards like Nintendo and Sega games, your point?
Nintendo covers a wide range of fanbases from Pokémon to Metroid. I'm not talking about the cutesy casual players who occasionally reblog art from the games. I'm talking about the people who create hacks, share their art, passionately discuss the series and its characters, ect. For the video games I LIKE, those attract a lot of toxic and childish people. That's all.
And are you really being a smartass because I said Sega? SEGA? The company that created Sonic? The fanbase that is legendary for its fuckery and stupidity? Come on bruh.
I wasn't very excited about the SotC remake until I saw some speculation that they might
add in unused colossi into the game. I think that would be amazing, some guy mentioned that 6/8 of the unused colossi had locations in the in game map that were just empty. Otherwise I still have my ps2 copy and the ps3 remaster really wasn't that long ago.>>292
No but I'd be up for suggestions of good ones. I tried picking them up a few years ago but didn't find one I liked enough to stick with.
If the next Elderscrolls game isn't in set in Valenwood I'm gonna smear feces all over my walls in protest. Wood Elves are badass in my eyes.>>339
I've only played on a couple servers. Elysium and Kronos are pretty decent if you like Vanilla. Dalaran seemed pretty nice, but I didn't stay long.
My favorite expansion was Burning Crusade, but with alot of those servers the xp rate is cranked way up which annoys me, because it messes up the economy, and buying skills is a pain. The much hyped Gummy's Burning Crusade is in open beta right now, and it's going to be 1x exp. I'm definitely going to try that one out when it gets released.
I'm not ashamed to admit that the Thalmor Justiciar that patrolled around Skyrim escorting heretic prisoners kinda terrified me.
Well aren't you just a ray of sunshine? Damn you need to relax. How am I being a smartass? You've been nothing but an uppity cunt in every post you made in this thread and you're reading everything I wrote and twisting it around into your own bitter words.
I wasn't being a smartass about anything, just genuinely curious on where you were coming from. Maybe take a look at the communities you're hanging out at and realize that doesn't make up the majority of the fanbase.>Sega made sonic so that means the entire sega fanbase is cringey xD
Nice meme. There's more sega games than Sonic and lots of less popular titles. Real life doesn't revolve around your internet memes and neither do people who enjoy certain games that have been around longer than the internet. You say video game communities are toxic but you've shown yourself to be exactly that so I guarantee whatever's happened in your past "messageboards" is because of your salty attitude. Go outside and take a breather.
>>341>My favorite expansion was Burning Crusade
Same! I started playing shortly after TBC launched though, so I have no vanilla nostalgia. Maybe if that new server works out we could play together.
Vanilla was excellent, but it was Burning Crusade that really refined everything that made it so great in the first place. If you played Burning Crusade you didn't miss much; you were already there for the golden era.
And it'll never feel the same again girls.
Yeah I don't feel like arguing over a decade's worth of experiences. It's cool if you had a more pleasant time but it's not for me.>You need to relax
Okay Bruno Mars
what kinda sega games we talking here, I feel we could become good friends very quickly
Actually, i just finished, and holy shit, i'm kinda dissapointed about some aspects of it and i'm, gonna ramble a little, excuse me.
Very heavy ending spoilers to persona 5 here. So the last dungeon(s) was severely disappointing,
Since i was overleveld as fuck and had almost all confidants to ten i fought max 5 shadows there because of ryuji rank 10, so i passed the whole dungeon in 20 minutes. The puzzles were mindboringly easy (which i appreciate after the fucking mouse shit) so i felt 0 tension going down to the HG. Then i arrived at the "end" fight and hooo boy, it lasted about a minute because i was doing it 4000 damage per hit. Everything goes to shit, a great cutscene happens, and back to prison.
Then the twist was revealed, which was absolutely an amazing twist, i thought that Atlus did an incredible good job there with the voice thing. And then they reveal who mona truly is, which seems a good explanation for him.
I chose not to accept the HG deal, and continued on and it all went downhill from there.
Last dungeon, instakilling the bosses, spent 10 minutes until i reached the HG.
Fight him, won in less than 12 minutes at full health. Seriously, in P4 i was overleveled too, but the last boss wasn't nearly as easy as this.
Anyways, so i saved humanity and i am basically a god now, yay. But oh wait! Another twist! You need to get into juvenile because even-though apparently Shido totally told them your case was a scam and it was all a false testimony, the police were incompetent enough not to search for the woman who he must've told them about that made a false testimony, but instead decide to incarcerate you anyways because "eh". They realised that you were an innocent man, or a possible one, but still did nothing to prove those charges to be false?. I don't know if this was a severe plot hole or it was intentional to show how useless adults are, but as my man Sojiro said, hoooooooooooooooooooooooooo boy.
Story happens, mona is "gone", time passes, spend Christmas with waifu, go into probation, Sae has figured everything out and is basically in love with your existence, spend valentines day with waifu and then the day to leave comes.
Mona supposedly is living on thanks to your cognition, in real life his cat form, and you can hear him talk eventhough supposedly he could only talk thanks to the metaverse part of him and he did not exists apart form it but suddenly he appears in the real word because people love him? eventhough the other world does not exist?. I don't know if that was me understanding something wrong, but it sounds like a hand wave explanation to bring him back to the MC side.
Say goodbye to confidants, get animu cut-scene, credits.
>all right, i'm gonna search internet for the secret/true ending now there totally must be one!
>realise that is the true ending
I don't know if it was being overleveled or something like that, but it seriously did not feel all that fulfilling. I remember the secret/true boss of p4 to give a far more satisfying experience and the end to close it all nicely together with the MC leaving (and in golden, growing up). This just felt a little bit unsatisfying.
I also felt the ending to Akechi's story was a little weird. Shido must've confessed he used his own son, Akechi, for killing in the Metaverse and the orders he gave him. But Sae is just like: "Akechi is gone who knows where he is not me lol". I don't know, it seems weird shido would confess everything and Sae would not try to find the one who carried the crimes so as she herself said, everyone in that ordeal pays and goes to court.
Do not get me wrong, i liked this game enough to consider it on my top 10, the twists were absolutely fatastic and the story tied nicely together, but it still left me thinking: that's it? for real?
vector makes shado…
pls respond I need someone to play some sega rts games with and talk about how great vanquish/binary domain and sonic
I'm not much of a Sonic fan but the fact that Shadow exists at all is unreal. You could easily sustain a thread off of Shadow quotes alone.
WHO THOUGHT THIS CHARACTER WAS A GOOD IDEA.
I'm playing Pokemon Sun, and so far I'm loving it, but some things are disappointing me. I played for 30h so far, I'm at the beginning of the 3th island, and while the battles are fun and the graphics look great (I feel like playing Colosseum sometimes), I wish there were bigger areas/dungeons/caves/routes to explore with more puzzles. I can't remember any puzzle being in this game. And I miss how the music was until XY was released. It doesn't feel as intense and memorable as how it used to be I guess? I don't know how to say it. The battle themes are great, it's more about the routes and towns' themes.
By the way, I have a lvl34 pikachu and I have no idea if I should make it evolve now or wait until it has better skills. Its attack is much better than its special attack, and I think the only skills I can get by leveling up now are based on its special attack stat. >>358
Get ready for Persona 5 Crimson. Just kidding, but seriously, I never played Persona 5, only read spoilers here and there, and I'm not surprised. Persona 4 Golden gave me the same impression in a way, but for different reasons. It was like the staff that made Persona 4 had a bunch of story/characters ideas they wanted to put in vanilla P4 and once they decided to make P4G, they created yet another uninteresting waifu (Marie) and put Teddie's and the final boss'
initial backstories in her character.
I have a terrible problem. Ever since I've discovered Bioshock, I can't stop fucking playing the fucking game - when I'm sad or bored or undecided on what to do in my free time, I turn Bioshock on and sometimes do the whole game from start to finish. I don't even bother looking at how many hours I have on it because I'd feel super bad about ~wasting my life away~, heh.
Even though I play other games too, Bioshock is what I always return to. It drives me crazy sometimes because I know all the locations, weapons, characters and enemies so perfectly it takes me literally 0 effort to complete it on almost 100%. But still I can't have enough on it, it's really really weird. Am I obsessed?
I liked Bioshock 2 too, it was great, a lot of fun, but it didn't really have The Feel of the first game, and when I finished the whole series, I almost howled from dissapointment at how terrible Bioshock Infinite was. Fuck Ken Levine.
I'd love that! My biggest downfall when playing on private servers is I play like a total recluse, and it sucks the passion out of me. >>349
Sadly I started towards the end of TBC, and I never even made it to endgame in time. I remember noobdom fondly, but I'll always have a little regret for not witnessing it live.
Also, I was wrong about there being no 1x TBC servers. Warmane has one, and I've been screwing around on there til the Gummy's launch. Only sketchy thing I've noticed so far is that it's highly likely they lie about their population. /who has a 2 minute cooldown and it won't display the total amount of people online.
Going to look into installing stuff to get on the Warmane servers
this weekend. Did you roll horde or alliance?
> which ones do you dislike or disappointed you?
Every single Paper Mario after TTYD. Every. Single. ONE
I dont even get excited when they announce a new Paper mario anymore, since I know it will be a disgrace.
What I think happened is they didnt like having two RPG serious with Paper Mario and the Mario & Luigi games, so now they are trying to make Paper Mario into… something idek. It just makes me so sad because the first two are my favorite games of all time. And the aesthetic and dreamy feeling of game one is just so beautiful .
I just want badges, cute buddies, and recipes back plz
Would any of you girls be interested in a PSN and/or Steam group for miners who game?
Could be a great way to meet other girls here who play video games and maybe play together!
What do you think?
I'd say maybe since I don't really play in parties or co-op games, would be interesting tho
I'm down for a steam group fosho
Same. If you gals have any cute co-op games to recommend I'd be down to try them though.
Cool, i'm >>529
and went ahead and made a steam group, feel free to join, everyone! http://steamcommunity.com/groups/crystalcafegames
I am currently looking for moderators and officers. So comment on the announcement post if you want to try and moderate.
I decided to not ban males just for joining, but ban them if they make any girls uncomfortable or do the typical "male here". If you disagree with this rule, i am open to maybe change it and ban guys completely.
Replaying SMTIV: Apocalypse, and getting back into Animal Crossing(my favorite villager moved away I'm so sad :c).
Is SMT4 Apocalypse as hard as SMT4? Not that SMT4 is particularly hard in general, it's just that Naraku gave me some problems in my first playthrough. And is STR still completely useless? I'm going to finish Pokemon Sun very soon so I want to play SMT4A next (although I'll try to complete my pokedex and complete the post-game side quests at the same time).
Speaking of Pokemon S/M, it's great and I was really into the story (which I wasn't expecting since I saw spoilers before the game got released), but it made me miss bigger dungeons and puzzles in Pokemon.
I play a lot of dota 2. Just played a match with an ursa who deliberately fed 0/27/2. Made me fucking pissed imo and i'm on a 4 game losing streak. Feelsbadman. At least the game has cute waifus, but i wish they added more "big" girls, not as in fat but more strenght heroes, maybe some undead or just monsters with vaginas.
What the fuck are we gonna do in Valenwood? Oh wow tree houses and bow&arrow elves. I hope we get Elseweyr, i think the whole gypsy thing they've got going on is really cool and it's something drastically different from the previous titles environment-wise. I want to wander the desert, worship the moon and abuse moon-sugar. I'm biased though because khajiit are my favorite race in all games, all-time.
It's been a while since I played Apocalypse but from what I remember, the enemies and bosses were easier than IV thanks partly to the partner system. I had no troubles with any of the bosses, not counting the DLC ones.
I believe most of the dungeons are pretty easy to get through (correct me if I'm wrong), however the last one can be a bit difficult. It's somewhat Strange Journey in its layout and takes some time to get through, even if you know what you're doing. It's one of those dungeons you have to do in one sitting or else you'll be completely lost when you eventually return to the game. It's definitely my least favorite part of the game but you just have to grin and bear it.
I'm not sure about the STR stat though, as I tend to use a MAG build.
What are some good online games to meet friendly people in?
Co-op gaming always interested me, but lack of friends who play games on my platforms leaves me unable to play any. And most communities I tried ended up being full of screaming children, annoying men or minmaxers that will attack you for enjoying the game and not being perfect at it, which is very tiresome.
I haven't played in a while but GW2 was always pretty friendly whenever I used to play it.
Seconded. GW has probably one of the friendliest online communities I've ever visited.
It's also f2p now so you can give it a shot and/or check out Reddit for tips and stuff
When Miyamoto dies, he the wii paper mario game was exactly like a thousand year door both in characters and gameplay and he said no and made them redoit all. Really depressing stuff>>529
Whatever became of the group? seems useless either way since discord does everything steam does community wise better>>334
Tfw you never responded. I just want someone to talk to about sega games and maybe get some co-op fun in. Being UK is suffering I can't find anyone to play games with here
Does anyone here plays Va11-halla?
I am only on my 5th day but I am loving it. And the board experience is just too real lmao
I found myself laughing because it reminds me of lolcow so much.
I am loving the characters as well.
My only complaint is that you can't save anytime, it really is bullshit and because of that I can only play sometimes.
>finally beat the mainquest in Pokemon SM
>just unlocked the feature that shows pokemon's IVs on the PC
>just saw that almost all my pokemon had shitty stats all along
I never played Pokemon competitively so I guess I need to catch a perfect Ditto, use some specific item and breed my pokemon so I can start going to the battle tree, but I'm really annoyed by this.
Looooove Va11-halla. I can't spend too much time reading text on screens so I play in bursts, but I've already gotten 2 endings and I would like to unlock the rest of them
Late to the party, but recently finished Tales from the Borderlands and it's so so good, like even better than what i expected after all the rave about it.
I watched an LP after finishing it and i am surprised about the fact that the choices actually matter and change the outcomes of things, as the characters attitudes towards you were quite different in the LP versus my playthrough.
Tad bit sad there will be no second season now as the ending was kind of…open. I don't mind open endings or you-decide endings but barely anything ended up tied together.
Well better to kill it when it's good than to drag it out a la walking dead, i guess.
Also very excited for the wolf among us season 2 coming out next year! >>671
Oh! I never heard of it but reading the desc it sounds very interesting and my kind of game.
Is it a short game or does it have a lot of play-time to it?
I've read everywhere that it is a short game. I don't really know since I am going on my 6th day now and I don't know how many days are there, but each day is probably like.. 40~60 min? So it goes fast, at least for me.
There isn't much gameplay, like.. You mix stuff to make drinks. I guess the hardest was this time one girl asked for a super strong drink to get drunk fast, and I had to remember which part of the drink was the alcohol, and see which drink had it the most. (I don't know if it gets harder later though)
HOWEVER! The characters and world are, at least for me, pretty appealing. I always found myself wanting to come back to it because I feel really immersed and most characters there are so charismatic, even the troupe-y ones. I guess the only thing that feels kinda weird for me character-wise is that I noticed that every female character is either bi or a lesbian. At first I liked the representation, but then it got a bit into fanservice territory.. I am yet to see a gay male character. and there's is this ace robot, i guess.
Anyway, I really wish the fandom was bigger though. The fanarts are so scarce, it's sad. I really wanted some nsfw fan arts as well, ngl
There was this rumor that they are producing another game but I didn't see anything about it so far. Here's to hoping.
What server do you play on, anon? I know this is an older post but I just found this board and aaaaah. I wonder if starting a FFXIV general on here would take off? /xivg/ is kinda off putting with all the chemo and avatarfag drama, it would be nice to have a chill general for the game.
Hopefully you're enjoying SB! As it turns out, WHM wasn't ruined after all which is nice. It's better than SCH at least lol.
>Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Want to play:
>More Skyrim (I have the game just don't play it enough)
>More project diva (Have the game)
>Breath of the Wild
>Fire Emblem: Echoes
Can't rly think of anymore rn but I love 3DS and WiiU games. Just Nintendo in general. I also really like simulation/rpg type games. Any reccommendations would be appreciated based off my lists.
anyone got some very fun action games to recommend? in the vein of soulsborne rather than elder scrolls.
>mediocre at singles
>mediocre at doubles
>god tier at three for alls
>tfw no competitive three for alls
I've been dubbed the rain man of smash. Kms
I play GW2 every day (on Riverside).
Anyone from here wants to play together?
I'm also playing:
>Dragon Age 2
>Binding of Isaac
I would but I'm on Whiteside Ridge :/
are those servers? that doesn't matter in GW2 anymore.
i have a couple of F2P characters. i tried getting into roleplaying, but it seems impossible haha. i mostly just grind events while listening to lectures.
Yes, and it does matter?
Server transfers cost gems, the only part where you can meet people from other servers is WvW
Yea, the rp community is small, but there are servers for it and a lfg
You can guest other servers.
I love adventure point and click games, I think it may actually be my favorite genre kek
So, I really love DOS/Amiga/PC98/etc games. I really fucking adore some good pixel art and full motion video (even though I know fmv can be very cheesy).
Anyway. I was looking for a specific point and click game that I loved when I was younger (Versailles 1685 if anyone is curious lol) and came across other games from the same company, one of them being KGB.
I really like the history of the USSR, so I got very very interested, but I read it is merciless and it kills you super easily and you really got act your part like a paranoid agent, since everyone seems to be out there to kill you and you are unrailing a big conspiracy.
Has anyone here played it?
Similar games suggestions are also welcomed!
>>850> I love adventure point and click games, I think it may actually be my favorite genre kek
Same girl, same. I've wanted to start an adventure game book club kinda deal but no one ever wants to play more than one or two in a row.
Haven't played KGB or even heard of it before but it sounds like it's up my alley. Similar game might be The Last Express, the dev team actually put a lot of effort into getting aesthetic details accurate even going as far as to tracking down the last remaining train car in a junk yard. You also play though an intrigue plot line based on historical events (though not based on real people) and have to make a choice to side with one political faction or the other, and there's a real time element in the game so you need to be in the right place at the right time to eavesdrop on the right conversations.
>I've wanted to start an adventure game book club kinda deal
Shit anon, this is actually a great idea! My only problem is that I take forever to finish a game. But I really love this idea.
Thank you for the recommendation, btw! I'm gonna look more into it!
Any miners play Runescape?
I'm waiting for Haunting Grounds to come to NA PSN, which will happen probably never since Capcom only cares about SF and RE
Remake never ever.
Step up your game, bitches. It's a point and click game that's relatively recent so it runs fine and is on steam. It's a trilogy so if you really like the first one (which you probably will) you'll still have another two games to play.
The story is a bit bland plot-wise but it's told in an endearing way, and the puzzles get better with each game.
>Legend of Zelda
>Paper Mario (original + TTYD)
>Hamtaro Ham Hams Unite + Ham Ham Heartbreak
Last one is obviously a childhood favorite but I could still play over and over tbh
Also I don't know if this counts but I'm addicted to escape the room games, like the flash ones you can find online.
Omg yes, those Hamtaro games are amazing! Not only adorable but also well done. I played the GBC one like 50 times. Now I feel like replaying it or Ham Ham Heartbreak.
I just realized I never finished Rainbow Rescue… Might do that now.
I wish there were more fun little adventure games like Hamtaro ones.
Ahhh I loved Hamtaro as a kid. I've always wanted to play the game boy game for it but never got the chance. Anyone know where I can purchase/play on an emulator maybe?
Does anyone who has splatoon 2 want to add me so we can play multiplayer together? I doubt anyone I know will ever get a switch. I really want to be able to voice chat in ranked battles! But nooooo you need to have friennnds.
I feel but I dont have a switch or splatoon 2 lol. If I do get a switch tho I know I'm gonna be in the same situation. I felt that way about the first splatoon but u really couldn't play w friends.
Hey hmu if you end up getting a switch and splatoon 2. It's a great game. But I would personally call it splatoon 1.5. It's not that different from the first one. Still like it a lot though.
will do! it honestly will probably be one of the main reasons i get a switch tbh. I wish it was more of a new game tbh, or that it came out on the wii u too /:
I feel your pain, I had no one to talk to playing all my wii u games other than Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, the only game that had common sense to add an in game vc
Just finished the first play-through of Nier Automata. I feel like this first play-through is way too short, but apparently the game doesn't expand too much until the third play-through.
Not thrilled that in the second play-through, I now get to control 9S instead of 2B. She is so fun to fight with. I guess 9S's hacking skills are neat though. I hope it switches back to 2B in the third play-through.
Also currently working on The Witcher 3, which despite everyone adoring, I just can't really get into yet.
tbh reading the comics and books helped me get into it more.
Ahhh, I loved ham ham heartbreak and actually purchased the cartridge to replay it a few months ago. I think I'll get the other games to and try them out. TBH they're better than a lot of adventure games meant for adults that I've played, I'd love to get some recommendations for similar games.
Emulators are great and I use them a bunch, but it ended up being pretty affordable for me to get an actual gameboy and cartridge if that's something you're interested in (less than $15 for an SP with shipping and ~$3 for the game with free shipping) Spent a few days lurking on ebay but was totally worth it because I gots a bunch of other beloved childhood games for cheap.
Today's Nintendo Direct was pretty disappointing, I expected some news about new games or games that we barely know anything about like the SMT switch game, instead we jut saw more of the same things. I realy wat to play Super Mario Odyssey though, it looks really fun.
I have mixed hopes for TGS next week, I hope they announce some worthwhile things.
does anyone have any recs on any isometric story driven games like fallout? after pumping hours into new vegas and 3 i decided "hey, why not tryout the first game to get a better grasp of the universe since you like it so much?"
now i'm realizing how much the newer games have kind of "crippled" me. what i mean by this is that i'm starting to really feel just how accustomed i am to relying on stuff like map markers and pointers in order to figure what i'm trying to do rather than take in the environment and find stuff out on my own. it's invigorating playing a game that coaxes you into actually thinking things through as opposed to just shooting shit and watching it explode into bloody globules. and it's kind of making me really not like 3 as much as i did. really starting to see what everyone means now.
How about Dragon Age Origins?
I'm going through the same thing as you, but with DA lol. It's both sad and incredible how this type of games changed.
Or maybe even Divinity Original Sin?
I know this is a lame question but did anyone get miitopia for 3ds lol
To me it looks pretty fun, and reminds me of tomodachi life and I loved that game
I'm just hoping it's worth the buy cause I'm pretty interested tbh
So i decided to finally play Persona 3, but i am wondering, which version is best to play for a first time playthrough of the game?
I really want to play the female protagonist, but i've heard P3P cuts out some content (which i'm not sure if it's too vital to the story) so i'm not too sure if i'll miss on too much by going with p3p compared to OG p3 for my first time.
Also i hear p3p is a little more similar to the newer persona games as far as gameplay goes, but i don't mind too much about that, but still seems pretty nice.
Do i miss on too much content for going p3p? Is it very different in general? Which one would you girls rec?
Yay Persona 3! I don't think there's a HUGE difference between the contents, although I felt that some things made more sense when I was playing as a male, which was my first playthrough. However I enjoyed the female viewpoint waaaaaayyyy more. There are just too much husbandos.
The main difference between P3P and original P3, IMO, are the cutscenes, which are anime cutscenes in the original and 3D sprites in P3P, and of course the gameplay updates added post-P4, which you will really note if you play original P3 or P3FES after P3P.
tl;dr: female protag felt better for me and there isn't a HUGE difference, no, you're not losing too much content. Enjoy the game! I could talk for hours non-stop about P3, haha.
Thank you for the input!
I can always youtube the anime cutscenes. If the changes are minor i'm definitely going to go with p3p.
I just love playing female characters, and playing persona as one always seemed like such a good and fun idea (kinda wish they would do it with p5 too at some point), so i'm very glad that p3p is not as cut as i thought!
I think if you know you're going to play with both protagonists, you should play with the male MC first. As >>1269
said, some details will make more sense since the vanilla game was made with the male MC in mind (won't say more though because of potential spoilers). I also like the female protagonist more because of the social links, I found them more interesting than the ones you get with the male MC (not just the husbandos). The protagonists are silent but they show their personality traits in the options in dialogues, I liked both equally, they're both cute.
By the way, I didn't think removing the anime cutscenes was a bad thing. I found the anime cutscenes cringey in P4, mostly because of the English voice acting. But that's an unpopular opinion so it doesn't mean much. You can still watch them on youtube later if you want.
>>1272>I think if you know you're going to play with both protagonists, you should play with the male MC first.
I don't have much time to play videogames so doing 2 playthroughs is off the table for me, so i cannot do both genders, sadly, that's why i was trying to settle for one haha.
Will i be lost in some parts of the story if i go girl MC?
I don't mind doing a male playthrough if it makes more sense generally, but yeah, i do prefer the girl.
I don't mind spoilers about why the male mc makes more sense if they are minor!sorry if i am asking too much shit, i just wanna make the playthrough of this game count since i'm very excited to play it at last lol
I've just got into the metal gear series 838282 years after everyone else.
If anyone else here is debating playing em I would super recommend them, I've had so much fun the last month getting into all the more, tho I can tell I'm getting a bit spergy about it irl so I'm looking for other people online to get hype with.
Nah, don't worry, you won't miss anything relevant nor get lost. Anddd… well, the first example that comes to mind is a major spoiler, so I'm not ruining the fun for you! (It has to do with another male character who appears early in the game.) Also don't worry about asking too much, I'm happy that someone is that excited about my fav game! >>1272
I played both P3 and P4 with an undub&subtitled cutscenes patch, so no cringey English voice acting for me, yay. Highly recommend getting that!
There's quite a lot of good high-quality isometric RPGs. Imo, the best among them are:>Fallout 1/2>Baldur's Gate/2 (classic, pretty much a must-play)>PS:T (also Torment: Tides of Numenera, a new sequel but not as good as the older game)>Arcanum (flawed gem, but amazing once you get past the terrible combat system)>Underrail (a lot like Fallout crossed with Metro 2033)>Avernum series (older ones are kinda hard to get into, but the first two games have been remade recently)>Shadowrun: Hong Kong/Dragonfall (both amazing games, but avoid Shadowrun: Returns because it's awful)
Pillars of Eternity/Wasteland 2/Divinity: Original Sin are also pretty good as well, though the latter two aren't fully 2D. Also, if you're more into story and less into combat, I'd probably avoid Icewind Dale, Serpent in the Staglands and ToEE.
Has anyone played Cuphead? Is it worth the $20?
yes, it's amazing. Especially when you consider the way the art and music was done to replicate that era. Gameplay is super fun to play too!
I'm currently going through Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on my Switch.
My next paycheck is going towards getting a copy of Splatoon 2.
Currently, the Switch is my favorite console. However, it feels largely unfinished. There's features on this device that aren't even done yet, however, I think it makes up for it by how modular it is.
Wew, just finished p3p playing a female character a few days ago and it has probably become one of my favorites, if not my favorite, persona game(and games in general).
It has such a fantastic story and characters, i'm really thankful for the people here that encouraged me to go with p3p!
Kinda wanna try FES to experience the "true" game now, but losing control of my party members makes me very reluctant about it.
I really hope that sometime soon they do a p3 remake or something (considering that they have the models and locations for dancing moon night, i'm kinda hopeful) and they include FemMC because so much amazing shit was lost on her side because of the psp capabilities and i'm incredibly salty about it. also incredibly salty that Atlus seems to really hate FeMC so if they do a remake they will probably not include her :(
. The ending especially was a major bummer comparing what i got on p3p vs what was going on on FES.
But whatever, the game is still fantastic and i recommend everyone that has not played it to give it a chance! Also, Akihiko best boy.
not bad, very short though. i also kind of wish they'd stuck to more of a theme than just 'look it looks like 30s cartoons' but i will say that it's fun and worth picking up
Right now I'm reading Kono Oozora which everyone is mad about the translation for but I don't think it's that bad, I saw that thread with comparisons to the original text and I personally don't think it's unreadable. They censored the sex but I didn't want to see it anyway so I don't mind since I am a dirty howaito piggu gaijin niwaka. Ageha is best girl.
Ayyye, I'm glad you liked it! :D It's a bummer Atlus dislikes FeMC's. (Remember that stuff Hashino said about a female protagonist in P5? Sheesh…)The stuff I told you before, that made more sense when playing with male MC, was the stuff with Pharos and Ryoji being more or less "your other selves", and that made more sense when the MC physically resembles those guys, especially Pharos. Gosh, I love those two too much. Thank you Atlus for letting us date Ryoji, I cried hard at the end of his SL on 31 Dec.
I hate when people get mad about cutting the sex in games. They almost always release an all-ages and an 18+ version in the end, so why not let people have their cute, pure, sex-free version. Also, I haven't started yet, but my friend told me everyone was just bitching about nothing with the translation, which is usually the case, so I'm glad to hear more positives about it.
Does anyone else still plays TF2?
I am so happy with this update.
I wish there were some other things that Valve probably won't do, but I am happy enough. I really wish there were more official SFM videos, though.
Will Doki Doki Literature Club scare the shit out of me? It sounds interesting but I'm also a bit of a baby when it comes to scary stuff.
Definitely. Especially if you're sensitive to suicide themes and unsettling stuff. I couldn't keep playing. It's a shame since it's a really interesting and well-done game.
I am a baby when it comes to horror movies and gore with real 3D humans but I thought the scares in DDLC were pretty funny because they were so over-the-top.
Wow, I had this game on the edge of my radar but hadn't looked too deeply into it and was totally unaware that it was a horror game. Are there any jump scares? That's the one thing that I really can't stand in horror.
>>1463>over the top
Explain? if you wanna use the spoiler tag go ahead, I'll probably never play this game lol
I'm easily spooked when it comes to horror and i seriously detest gore, and i played doki doki to completion (including reading secret files and such (or what i could get lol)) without getting even remotely scared or having to alt-tab.
I only got a little bit spooked when Natsuki's neck broke in an after-poem scene and she approached you running without a mouth and with her eyes blacked out
and when a poem told me to look at a dot for a period of time, since i expected some shitty jumpscare (didn't have one)
, otherwise, i'd say it's pretty mild "horror".
Some of the imagery feels more "uncomfortable to look at for some reason" rather than "scary".
I honestly wonder if i am playing a different game compared to all the people saying this is too scary to play even to "horror enthusiasts" lol
It has no screamers, no jumpscares… etc, the most disturbing thing about it are its themes.
But otherwise, i'd say go for it. It's a really interesting game, it's well written and it has a lot of interesting ideas put into it. I especially like the whole "hidden file messages" idea. >>1466
Not that anon, but (obviously spoiler heavy).Having a girl that cuts herself if she becomes too over stimulated stab herself multiple times in the stomach and the chest because she can't deal with how much she loves you and having someone caring for her, and having to deal with you confessing to her/rejecting her after her feelings, and then having to spend the whole weekend watching her corpse in first person decompose slowly as the blood rusts away.
orHave a static image of a cute 2d girl acting normal suddenly stare at you with uneven realistic eyes as she breathes for minutues directly looking at you as the screen darkens and gets a static effect
I'm about to get Mario Odyssey tomorrow, that is if scalpers won't buy the shit out of them. -_-
I swear, I wish it was legal to kill those kinds of people.
I missed out on so many games on the PS2 and GBA because I didn't have these consoles back then, and now I'm buying some games little by little because I always wanted to play them, but now I don't have enough free time because of college and my job. It sucks. I almost want to drop out of college because it's absolute shit in the first place and just work so I can have more free time and money and finish my backlog.
I also really want a Wii U just for Bayonetta 1&2 and the Zelda games because I couldn't finish Wind Waker at the time for a bunch of reasons and my youngest siblings fucked up all the Gamecube and Wii controlers we had. I feel like this might be a bad idea because I also really want a Switch, but since I can find a Wii U for 120€ pretty easily, maybe this is also a good way to wait until the Switch becomes less expensive and more games are released.
Bf got Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 final mix (or whatever the actual title is) as a reward for working hard. I am ready to ride the nostalgic train.
Well, this has been a very shitty and sad N7 day.
I will never stop being salty about bioware killing one of their best franchises for a shitty destiny copycat.
I expected at least… something. Maybe an anouncement for a mass effect collection wth dlcs to make up for Andromeda or an announcement of an hd remaster, or at least some info to see if they will kill the franchise for good or whatever, but nope, only some streams and a video, that albeit very heart pulling, only made me remember how good the franchise used to be and how much they cared about it before they decided lol mp makes us money fuck off with that mass effect shit.
The archives a la DA they made give me hope that maybe they will stop being idiots and decide a canon ending for the OG ME and continue expanding on that universe (with new characters, maybe) instead of continuing on Andromeda or wherever else.
To be honest i just don't want the franchise i love so much to become a mediocre book/comic series.
This is how I feel about the AC series honestly. And I hope ME and DA don't go it the same direction. (Well, ME already kind of did, as you said)
Here's to hoping they'll improve, even if a tiny bit in the upcoming years.Tbh I'm worried about the gaming industry as a whole.
AC as in Assassins Creed? I didn't know that they planned to make it into books, or are you talking about the movies?
I've read that the last game was kinda good and not too scummy with DLC, though, which seems nice.
>Tbh I'm worried about the gaming industry as a whole
Same. I honestly am kinda scared for the future of videogames if these shitty practices keep being brushed off and making their way into being considered normal.>broken games delivered as "complete">loot boxes becoming the norm>all games must have mp so they can make money>companies making you pay to play online even when they do not host the servers>story being delivered through DLCs (i'm fine with DLC if it's like a separate thing to expand on the story, but when important story points that tie heavily into the main story are put into them it pisses me off. hello DA inquisition)>stories being pushed to the back in favor of action or ways to cash more money>etc
I'm not even a hurrdurr videogames used to be better kill all companies hurrdurr kinda type, but seeing the medium turning into garbage and beloved franchises getting killed off in favor of making MP games to cash on the whales is really saddening.
Unless there is some change and people stop feeding into this kinda bullshit the videogame industry will soon become a virtual casino.
I can just imagine:
"Please pay 3,99 to unlock the next story point!" Shudders
Is anyone here getting Pokémon USUM?I'm not sure when I'll get a copy because I was expecting it to be a sequel to Pokémon SM (like Black and White 2) but some people on /vp/ are saying it's more like a third version like Emerald or Platinum. If it's really a third version I'll buy it later.
No. I was obsessed with the Pokemon franchise all through my life, but after I was disappointed with Sun, no way I'm going to support another lackluster continuation. I want a Sinnoh remake desperately.
I played Sun too, and while I liked it in general, I have to admit it was disappointing as a Pokémon game, there were barely any dungeon or puzzles in it, it felt like I was visiting Alola as a tourist and not actually exploring it as usual. I liked the plot though somehow, but didn't like how long and annoying some cutscenes were as well as the tutorial. That said, I liked it enough to try and complete the pokédex and I just need to trade a few mons for that now.
As I said I'll wait until I know more about USUM to see whether I'll buy it or not, but I'm not expecting a masterpiece just because it's a gen 7 game. I loved Pokémon XY (I have X) and people tend to criticize the gen games harshly online but I loved it just because the pokédex was more interesting and there were actual dungeons in it, as short as they were. I'm not going to compare SM to the other main games because even though I played all the mainline games, it's more fair to compare it to the 3DS games.
>I want a Sinnoh remake desperately.
I wouldn't mind not having one because I think Platinum doesn't have enough flaws to get one and I didn't play the other versions so I can't say for sure. But if we get one it's most likely going to be on the Switch, and it would be so cool. But then I think about how ORAS wasn't as difficult or fun as Emerald and I start having doubts.
Do playing on emulators count? I got into them a few months ago and got Animal Crossing the GameCube version working on my computer! I'm so happy.
I'm fucking terrified for DA because inquisition was really good and cemented my love for the franchise. It'll break my heart if it goes to shit now.
It can't get worse than ME:A at this point. It just can't.
Anyone playing FFXV comrades?
It feels pretty barebones and buggy but i am enjoying my time on it.
Kinda expected it to be open-world-ish, not mmo gathering type quests with matchmaking that only lasts 1 round but it's fun so far. Hopefully it will be more interesting in the coming months after it gets morw polished.
My favorite part is the CC though, it's so good and i'm having so much fun creating characters!
I'm so hyped that I finally have a moment to play through some of my old favorites since I've got a few days of downtime before classes start back up.
I've got this GBA emulator on my phone and I'm wondering if you guys have any suggests as to what I ought to try out? Maybe some lesser known stuff that you think is great but not a whole lot of people talk about?>>1660
To be honest, I don't think I liked the originals enough to warrant buying a Switch just to play USUSM. With how things have been going since XY, it's really gonna take a bit to coax me into it. I'm tired of being so underwhelmed.
You don't need the Switch for USUM, it's on the 3DS like XY and SM. Gen 8 will be on the Switch though, since they said some months ago that they were working on a mainline Pokémon game for the Switch.
Oh, I'm a huge dummy! I'd only ever seen promos of it for the Switch, I had no clue.
I'm looking forward to the Bayonetta series on the Switch. I always wanted to play Bayonetta but couldn't because I didn't have the right consoles. I don't have a Switch yet but I'll preorder Bayonetta 1 and 2 and try to buy a Switch for cheap before I get the games. I'm glad the Switch is going to get games I always wanted to play or sequels of games I love.
By the way, what do you think about Death Stranding? I don't think I'll get a PS4 anytime soon because I don't have a tv, but I'm very curious anyway. People tend to post about how the game is going to be weird and nonsensical because of the trailers but I feel like, for the story at least, it will either make even less sense than what we've seen in the trailers, or it'll make sense (regardless of quality) and it's just Kojima not wanting to put potential spoilers in his trailers.I only played MGS1, 2 and 3 recently but I've been told that Kojima hates spoilers in trailers and didn't show Raiden in the MGS2 trailers because of this so this could be possible, idk.
u can buy the first bayonetta on steam, anon. it came out earlier this year
I can't play anything on my computer, and there are no Nintendo games on Steam so getting the Switch is a good investment in my case.
Does anyone play LiS:BtS? I got it on Steam recently but it crashes like a motherfucker all the time. I've updated drivers, verified game caches, reinstalled, and lowered graphics settings. But the game keeps…fucking…crashing. I was wondering if anyone has played it on console instead of PC and if it still crashes or if it's more stable. I might just return it on Steam and get the PS4 version instead.
Weird, it never crashed on me on my pc (1080p screen, i7-4790K, amd r9 380 and 8 gb of ram.)
What specs and setup are you running it on? I've heard that 4k and dual monitors can make it crash pretty badly.
Maybe this thred on steam could help you out somehow?:https://steamcommunity.com/app/319630/discussions/1/618458030692769460/
The devs seem willing to help so you could contact them on twitter or steam if the thread does not correct the issue.
Hmm I do have dual monitors. I wonder if I switch the settings to single if it'll fix the problem. Unfortunately, I've read through almost all of the crash threads on Steam and no one seems to have a solid solution. I did put in a ticket with Square but haven't heard back yet.
My favorite franchises are Armored Core and Oddworld.
Mangagamer is doing a visual novel humble bundle right now!https://www.humblebundle.com/games/mangagamer-and-friends-bundle
Lots of stories for only $10. If you are new to VNs and interested in them because of Doki Doki Literature Club, I'd recommend Higurashi from this bundle!
i hate supporting manga gamer tho…
I have it on ps4 and haven't had any issues.
same anon, link to /crystalcafegames is dead that's why lol
I'm the one who made it and i killed it because nobody joined in weeks even after the interest in the thread lol I guess it must have felt awkward or something to join a small group anf stop being anon idk
I'm not sure if a new group would get more people now that the website has more traffic? I'd join one if a new one was made since i definetely want more friends to play on pc!
I'm up, I'd love to join it when we're a bigger comm, don't forget the idea anon!
I want to join but I'm also scared to. I like being anon and I'm worried that I'd get doxxed if I linked to my actual Steam ID. Maybe I should make a secondary anonymous one but that would suck to re-buy all the games.
yeah I would not link ID but possibly remake group so we can all probably add each other? I dunno what you all think
but would be nice to play something with you all!
Yeah, i get the sentiment and why nobody joined the first time around.
What if the group was private so we could only accept certain people?
Then we would only have to worry about how much we trust fellow miners to not be shitty and there would be no need to post IDs here or share them publicly.
Discord also would be ideal since it's pretty anon and good for gaming, but since admin doesn't allow them that's out of the question lol
yeah making it private would be a good idea
LiS BtS last episode anyone?
I only played a little of the first episode but didn't find it as engaging as the first LIS and I ended up never picking it back up. Is it getting better? Should I power through and catch up?
I only liked it because i like the vibe of life s strange but i was very let down.Most of the interesting shit was put on a slideshow in the end,
like, come on, at least give more explanation.
I also hated how "packed" the whole ep felt, it felt like they forgot for the 2 first episodes that they only had 3 to work with and on the third one they decided "oh yeah right, we better give the characters like Rachel's mom some kind of development and plot. Like, what the fuck happened int he first 2 episodes? basically nothing expect for minor development to the characters and the romantic relationship between Chloe and Rachel.
Also what the fuck was the deal with Elliot in that last scene, like oooo you ignore me blah blah blah, dude i barely know you existed thanks to the fact that the devs only remembered you existed in the last few hours and decided to turn you into a psycho, thing that had 0 impact because we didn't even know what your fucking personality was thanks to 0 character development.
If they extended the story through the 3 episodes better instead of packing it all on the last episode it would have been a lot better.
Don't get me wrong, i liked the game, and i find that, albeit rushed ( i just met you but i love you, like lol) , Rachel and Chloe's relationship was beautiful and they had some VERY interesting things, but most of those things were super rushed in the last episode and weren't allowed to grow organically through the episodes so you gave a shit like in the OG LiS.
My desktop from 2011 just died on me. I am debating on spending about 900-1000 bucks on a new desktop vs buying a ps4.
I dont want to build my own rig
Desktop, anon. Master race.
i think there's some site that lets you put in what you want your computer to do and it 'makes one' for you.
It depends on your preferences on games and how much you are willing to spend. I have both a PC and a ps4 because i think the ps4 has some really nice exclusives and i've bough every single playstation console to date.
If you don't care about the exclusives and can build an ok enough rig, go with pc, since apart from the available games, you can also emulate old ones and use it for other stuff, also most console exclusives are now releasing on pc after a few years so you won't miss much.
A lot of online places offer for you to pick and choose parts and then they build it for you for a fee, so get some nice components instead of a premade pc since you'll save some big bucks.
Is the steam group up?
I'm not sure if I joined the right one.. lul
As far as i know, no. I was the one talking about making it but never did since people had anon concerns lol
The only steam group with the name crystal cafe i found seems to be made even before the board was a thing (iirc) so i don't think it's from here.
Anyone else here enjoying VRChat? I never really got into other virtual avatar chat rooms like IMVU and Second Life but this is a blast.
definitely gonna be downloading it asap. looks fun and i cant wait to look like an anime girl
Yes! I'd love to form a little group of friends there.
I've been watching immortalHD stream it and i think it looks really really fun! I really want to play it.
Wish i had a vive to play it since it seem to make the experience a lot better, but it's so expensive i can't justify buying it for a virtual chat lol.
I'm playing it with just a mouse and keyboard and it's still fun. With just the mouse you can still pick objects up and interact with them, turn your head and move your eyes to look at something, and do actions like dancing.
What is the purpose of this game/chat? What can you do?
It's like Second Life except those with VR headsets can play it in VR.
Yeah, maybe i'll try it with M+K. It's just that having VR seems to be the optimal experience for it since you can express emotions and stuff haha>>2064
It has no purpose tbh.
It's a virtual chat where you get an avatar and get to dick around with people in VR (or no VR, doesn't really matter, if you have it you can move your arms, dance, etc) and it has rooms like amusements parks, shooting ranges, etc.
It's basically like an early 2000's chatroom but with voice chat and VR support.
Attached a video of a compilation from the streamer i mentioned before, it shows a little bit what to expect out of it.
>>2057>non dreadlocked tan knuckles
Do any of you guys play fighting games? I'm trying to get into them (specifically Guilty Gear XRD), I'm really bad at the moment but hoping to get better! If anyone is on PSN and wanting to play some GG with a scrubby Slayer hit me up maybe!
i got into KOF after randomly seeing a this mess in a arcade, fighting games are fun but i really like when they put some lore.
Does anybody here play tactical rpgs? i remember playing disgaea 2 and really liking it but i don't know other titles that are fun or with a interesting story
Can I get a new invite to this if it still exists?
Thank you for reminding me, was meaning to try this game forever. What do you enjoy the most about it?
The world building, the attention to detail, the characters, the nuance in the plot, how the series builds upon itself with each subsequent game.
Is anyone else hyped for Shadow of the Colossus remake in almost two weeks?
Me! SotC is in my top ten games and the remake looks absolutely gorgeous. What's everyone's favorite Team Ico game?
SotC is the best one for me. I've played Ico a bit and really, really want to get ahold of The Last Guardian to try it out when I can. I heard it got not so great reviews though. Can any anons confirm if the reviews are true?
I haven't finished it yet but I like The Last Guardian a lot. People mostly complain about the AI, but if you go in with patience and the expectation that Trico will be a little fickle, you'll have a better time. Not to mention the game is absolutely gorgeous!
Fuck yes, cold steel 2 is coming to PC this Feb. I thought for sure we'd be waiting all year for it; I'm so excited.
So now that BtS is out, thoughts?
Also, I've heard that there is going to be a LiS 2, with all new characters!
I grew super attached to Amber during BtS, I loved the chemistry she had with Chloe, It was much stronger than with Max imo. Playing their relationship helped me understand why Chloe was so distraught in the first game.
And all of Chloe's "dad dreams" fucked me up, they were super powerful.
I actually think I may have enjoyed BtS more than the original game.
Shadow of the Colossus and ICO are my favorite games, so I jumped on the chance to get the collectors edition of TLG when it came out. It's a beautiful game, please play it, if you love SotC and ICO it would be a crime not to!
>>2222>tfw you accidentally hit a button and it makes a choice you didn't want so you hit rewind at the menu.>tfw it rewinds the entire fucking episode instead of letting you pick a transition point.
For some reason I always feel emotionally exhausted when playing games like BtS and LiS; or any in depth choices matters type games. After I saw it took me back to the beginning of the episode I had to put it down for a while. I'll probably need a break from it for a week or two before I can start playing again.
Just from what I was playing, I still don't like Chloe but she was less of an asshole this game than in LiS.
Great taste, anon. I love Kiseki. Ao translation will be out around the same time.
I just don't get why they took the ability to crouch out of Mass Effect 2 and 3…
Soo I didn't know this until recently but there is a usable version of danger/u/ https://dangeru.us/
Do any other anons here love the Sonic Adventure games? I love the music (probably amongst the best in the franchise, tbh), the corny yet still oddly dark stories, the cheesy dialogue, the Chao Garden, the level design (when it actually wants to work :')) and just the overall aesthetic of the games. They scream late 90s', early 00s' to me and I just adore that.
Sometimes I get a bit embarrassed about telling others I'm into Sonic, due to the reputation the franchise has garnered over the years, but I think SA1 and SA2 are still pretty solid titles in the series!
I've been itching for an MMO lately, but none of them look very appealing.
in truth I just want to have the same experience I had playing old maplestory as a kid, but that ship sailed a long time ago, breaks my heart, really.
Same here. Well the bf has been trying to get me to buy a new computer so that I can play MMOs and other games with him, but I don't need one just yet.
Nostalgia MMOs: Maplestory, Gunbound, Survival Project, Guild Wars, Runescape.
I've been dying to find a good new MMO but haven't found any that are that appealing. I used to play EQ, EQII, and WoW. I gradually stopped EQII since no one was playing it and I quit WoW around the time BC came out because I was getting tired of all the rep grinding. I honestly miss playing it now but I don't know if I'd ever go back to it. It just doesn't seem to have the same community feeling as it did before.
Then try Guild Wars 2
We often get new player who come from WoW and love the change since the game is way more casual, doesn't have a gear treadmill and the community is really friendly.
It's F2P (with restrictions for free accounts) so you can try it out. I really recommend it.
Also, if you ever feel burnt out by the game, you can leave for months and don't have to worry that you missed out on anything.
Yes, I love these games so much. I played them on the gamecube a lot. I like them so much that even thinking about the glitches (that and playing with a fucked up controller) in the games makes me feel nostlagic. I really miss the chao garden, makes me wish there was a way to play these games on handhelds so I could raise my chao whenever I want.
I liked Heroes after that and the DS games but I didn't care all that much about Shadow's game and I never finished Unleashed on the Wii. I have Colors on the Wii somewhere but I lost it (somehow?) before I could even play it at least once. I tried to play the first games of the series on my PC a long time ago and the games just wouldn't save my progress. It was one of the compilation/collection games but I don't remember the name at all.
Since it seems like people were still asking for it, I made a Steam group! Don't be shy, feel free to join. Add others, chat, shitpost, lurk in the depths, doesn't matter! I'll be leaving it up for as long as Steam lives.
joined! also omg i love the description anon a+
More people should play visual novels. Too many people have horrendous misconceptions about the medium as a whole.
I bought a psvita for Persona 4 Golden and Dangan Ronpa (the first one). I have played other games on it as well and I'm kind of interested in visual novels but I never really know where to start, because I have a huge backlog on other consoles and especially because I'd be more interested in games that aren't localized like some otome games and BL games.
Anyone has any recommendations of something like A Little Lily Princess?
Or maybe someone is a fan of indie-rpg genre and likes Aveyond?
Screen Shot 2018-0…
I played it for a while but eventually got bored of it (like most MMOs) I just can't handle wasting too much time on it. I gotta say though, their character creation thingy is really nice I spent over 40-50 minutes just creating my character. It's a shame that the game is too big and isn't available on macOS (my internet sucks way too much and to download it again I'd have to wait countless hours and besides, I'd need to use a pc to play it anyways).>>1959
I would go for a laptop rather than a console but if I were to buy a console I would buy the switch it seems really fun tbh.
just started up staxel. it's so comfy! it's a bit buggy right now since it's in early beta (bug report) and lacking some content but the aesthetic fulfills the weeb in me. it's kind of like a cute marriage of harvest moon and minecraft. it also has some pretty fun events! i hope some miners will join me when it's more stable.
>a wild weeb appears!>>2303
I've been debating on creating a VN thread on here for the longest time, but never mustered the guts to. Visual novels have an underrated potential for telling stories, with its audiovisual aspects and the option for the reader to make choices. I wonder how they'll evolve, but that's a discussion for another day.
What did you think of Chaos;Child? I finished Steins;Gate and enjoyed it, though I set Chaos;Head on a perpetual hiatus since last year.>>2308
No need to rush, anon. Just play whatever you fancy. What are the non-translated titles you're interested in?>>2309
Princess Maker 5 embodies a similar charm. The downside to it is that it's hella long…like, 40-60 hours long for one run, due to you scheduling every week of your daughter's life for five years. Despite the multiple endings, the game doesn't encourage replays due to its tedious length. If you can see past that though, PM5's pretty cute and filled with content.
Ebi-hime's games are probably the next closest thing. She's known for her clever writing and in-depth character analyses. I'd recommend starting with Asphyxia. The characters–cute girls, of course–are inspired by 18th century poets, though the plot's far from cute. Blackberry Honey, another game of hers, features yuri Victorian maids, though I haven't read it yet.
(On another note, I've been playing Himawari. Still on the common route. Makes me nostalgic for stars. Might get started on Lisa soon, though I'm not the best with combat in any game.)
Recent things I've been playing to see if any anons also play or are interested in them: Diablo 3, because got it for console not too long ago, and a new season is starting; Bloodborne; FFXV; Kingdom Hearts Final Mix; Rayman Legends
Have too many games (thx PS+) that haven't been started but interested in: Hatoful BF (lol); Life is Strange; want to replay Rachet and Clank.
Excited about: Shadow of the Colossus, but we're probably gonna wait to get it because so many other games to finish; Dark Souls 2 Remaster; KHIII.
Ah fuck also forgot have Persona 5 that the bf started but he probably won't finish it so I should play.
I really want to play Utapri on the PS Vita because I'm getting into the anime and it's fun, I heard they were remakes of the ones on the PSP. And I noticed that some of them are actually translated either on the PSVita or the 3DS, like Corpse Party or Hakuoki. I'm actually a newbie when it comes to VNs and dating sims, I just like the concept a lot from other games like the recent Fire Emblem and Persona, among other things.
I heard there were a lot of otome games on the PS Vita but I forgot almost the titles right now. I think the PSVita isn't region-locked, it's great.
Any other anons going to pick up the Yume Nikki reboot coming out on Steam tomorrow? I'm a huge fan of the original, but I gotta say that the reboot looks like it will be more frightening to play.
Any ladies here into speedrunning? I've been looking in to maybe trying it out but the community kind of seems unwelcoming what with all of the neckbeards and "omg a REAL gril?!" mentality.
I enjoy watching them but don't see myself participating in the community really for related reasons.
It's a damn shame, really. I feel like as soon as I try to get into it I'll get a lot of backseat gaming and know-it-all autists who have nothing better to do than humblebrag about their strats and run times. A lot of speedrunners seem pretty full of themselves and I never see female runners last too long in this scene or get much attention at all. Really demotivating.
I started playing the game a couple months ago but even though I knew the community's existence for days (uboachan, reaction images et cetera). I have to be honest here: this game is a rollercoaster of nice and boring moments: sometimes you'll be running in circles for hours looking for something only to find copy-paste sprites everywhere and sometimes something cool might happen.
It's also full of blatantly mentally ill transwomen.
I love watching speedruns and have considered picking up the hobby myself, but I just don't have the time or will to only play one game constantly every day. Plus the influx of trans women in the movement is a bit of a turn off as well. It seems that every month you hear of another male runner coming out as a trans woman. It makes me curious as to why the speedrunning community has this occurring in it.
Speedrunning seems to attract a lot of mentally ill people but I guess it makes sense considering what kind of hobby it is. I can't read up on anything speedrun related without somehow coming across a comment about Narcissa or some kind of drama in general.>>2342
Same here anon. I'm trying to look into shorter runs that I could maybe practice a few times a day but then I get into looking for strats and somehow end up finding about how speedrunner #28583 is a transwoman now and drama surrounding it. Feels like an actual woman would be treated as a joke if they ever got known enough.
There's plenty of games that are only about an hour long, anon. If you have a Switch then you can try out Odyssey's Any% run. It looks like it has a lot of tech involved, but its community is pretty large and there's lots of guides!
But yeah, I couldn't imagine becoming a female speedrunner, going to an AGDQ/SGDQ, being interviewed and having to use female pronouns to enable selfish narcissists like ProtoMagicalGirl. It would make me feel like an embarrassment of a woman.
It's funny you mention Odyssey cause that's one of the ones I was actually looking into! I've always had a soft spot for the love that goes into routing Mario (and LoZ) runs.
Anyway, you're exactly right about that. GDQ itself is something I've been unsure of supporting for a while because of the way they handle… everything lol. It feels like it's just a snowflake hugbox at this point and meanies or people the staff don't like are not allowed!!! A shame that a charity event had to end up like this. At least the charities stil get their money though, thank christ.
I find myself generally enjoying what RPG Limit Break does, though I've never looked around to see if they have any drama as it's still fairly small compared to GDQ.
I'm playing civ III right now and i'm so addicted to it.
But i think i'm retarded because i'm always in negative gold and idk how the fuck to get over the stump, i did everything guides said to do, i reduced my corruption to almost a nothing, but i'm still in the negatives (like -100 negatives kek).
I think i'm around 850 AD? so yeah. The latest thing i unlocked is he ability to make banks. (It's my first civ game so i'm a babbie)
Do yourself a favour and buy Civ 5. Best civ game!
any good life sim games that'll run on my potato of a laptop? basically something with nice npc's that i can romance / befriend, blah blah blah. doesn't even HAVE to be a life sim really, just something that'll get me engaged.
da 1 ran with a little lag, da 2 ran with quite a bit of lag but was still playable, to give an example of what i'm working with.
Stardew Valley maybe? You can befriend NPCs and get married, and in addition you take care of a little farm. Idk if that's the type of sim you're looking for though. Or maybe you can just play the sims since it's basically made for the whole romancing befriending thing, but idk if that's your type of game. Sims 4 runs on my laptop that I've had for about 4+ years and there's even a laptop mode on it so you're not killing your computer or having a super laggy experience.
Chaos;Child is very good. Favorite VN I read last year and I'd recommend it to pretty much anyone who enjoys VNs or just likes games with interesting plots and ideas. It's better than Steins;Gate in my opinion. However going in you shouldn't expect there to be much of a connection between them, and C;C is substantially different, being more of a murder mystery and also having a school setting. It's somewhat of an indirect sequel to Chaos;Head, since it doesn't have any of the same main characters but does have similar themes and plot elements that carry over. You can definitely read Chaos;Child without having read Head.
I would recommend waiting for Chaos;Head Noah to be translated anyway for that, since its the definitive improved version (only the original has a fan translation).
are C;C and C;H supposed to happen in the same universe? i know C;H and S;G are.
Final Fantasy XV c…
who here gonna get final fantasy 15 for the pc? im a simple woman, i see cute boys, i buy. and it's not turned based which is a plus for me. i dont mind turn based games but im such a sucker for action based combat
Maybe if I make room, the file is like 86gb, which I do have to spare but it's not a priority when I already have the game for PS4.
Only got a few hours in so far, it's pretty and more action-feeling than a typical FF title, but the combat system is a bit wonky, the camera sometimes shits itself, and there are quite a lot of tedious time-sinks that can't be skipped (driving cutscenes lmao).
Does anyone else here think the new Smash Bros. game for Switch will just be a port/slightly enhanced version of the Wii U one? Usually Smash games are announced a couple years before they release to build up hype, but this one is releasing later this year with no prior announcements. Just makes me think that it's not an entirely new game.
Sounds like it since they announced it oh so casually and it wasn't hyped like the 3DS/Wii U game was.
I just finally want a new animal crossing game. It's been 5 years but they're stalling with stupid shit like mobile games and ports.
Lmao, I remember the Animal Crossing Plaza app on the Wii U. All those nice models they made for all the villagers and Nintendo didn't do anything with them except make a shitty board game spin-off no one asked for. There's always this year's E3 to hope for though. You can only play NL for so many years before it starts to get a bit boring.
I got bored of NL in 2 weeks and stopped playing then after the release date. Wild world and the original game were just way better with more shit to do and felt less flaccid and materialistic. Nintendo completely missed the point of an AC game with NL.
Heres to hoping the new one will be worth playing.
This sounds right. My friend was telling me that he think it's gonna be a brand new smash though because HAL is working on this one (I guess they didn't work on Sm4sh so correct me if I'm wrong) and because BotW Link was in the trailer or something. I wish they would bring back something similar to Subspace Emissary.
Also, while on the topic of the switch, I'm really bummed that I didn't get one. The only thing stopping me is because I got the Wii U maybe a year or two after its release and don't wanna spend more money on a big console and have my WiiU collect dust. I bought the WiiU mainly because I had hope that it would release some really good games and just to support Nintendo TBH. I'm really happy we got stuff like Sm4sh and Splatoon but the games all came out at such a slow rate, especially when compared to the Switch. I feel like Nintendo really neglected the WiiU when compared to the switch. Maybe I should make the switch
and get one winkwink
i had to give myself really forced goals in nl but once i achieved them i stopped.
Public Works Projects in that game were just annoyingly grindy to get. I've played my copy of NL for 100+ hours, have gotten a bit of them, but haven't gotten the ones I wanted for the theme of my town. Trying to get all the Sloppy series from Re-Tail is a task, too. I've gotten a lot of duplicates of some items from that set.
I think I may give up on Nintendo games. The latest entries on the franchises I used to like (Pokemon Moon, Layton's Mystery Journey, the last couple Ace Attorney games) have dissappointed me so badly. I think they are just trying to cash on nostalgia instead of actually doing something imaginative. Even AC Pocket Camp became boring after a couple of weeks, as cute as it was
Lone survivor was inspired by silent hill. It's really good.
The Lakeview cabin collection is also pretty good, if a bit campy.
I love Pokémon and Ace Attorney a lot but I have to admit I found Pokémon Sun (the version I played) and Dual Destinies and the 6th entry whose title I forgot not bad but underwhelming.
What you said about nostalgia is really obvious when it comes to Ace Attorney because they just won't stop rehashing plot twists and tropes from the popular cases and characters from the first 4 games. And since the series is all about solving crimes I expect a minimum of suspens and tension but now the cases are way too predictable. I was really looking forward to DGS because I wanted something fresh, instead we're stuck with having final cases with half of the characters being the original cast and the other half being copies or at least inspired by the original cast. I mean, it's pretty bad when you notice that the last cases of Dual Destinies where "inspired" by Ghost Trick in the end (and I'm putting it lightly here) even though Shu Takumi wasn't involved in Dual Destinies. At least the characters are still somewhat interesting and the filler cases are still good, at least to me.
I thought the latest Ace Attorney game was pretty good, it was honestly better then AA5, which I just found pretty boring. The only moment that hyped me up was when Edgeworth returned
The newest Layton game is a boring disappointment. The puzzles are WAY too easy and the mysteries weren't interesting. I can't even finish it I'm so disappointed.>>2503
I'll probably play any AA game that comes out because I'm such a stan for the series, but what you said is pretty true. The first 3 games are the best and if someone stopped playing after that, they probably wouldn't miss too much.
I'd say you can add AA4 with the trilogy. At least it tried to bring new things to the series, even though some plot points and twists were weird or badly done. I liked that Klavier wasn't as belligerent as the previous prosecutors and his link to Kristoph but I think it was badly handled. Everyone I've seen talking about the franchise complain about Klavier being too much of a good guy and helping Apollo too much even though that's his job. But I have a feeling Shu Takumi wanted the players to be highly suspicious of Klavier because he's Kristoph's brother and Ema said he was involved in Phoenix's disbarment, so we would think he was involved in a mess up plan with Kristoph. Instead everyone guessed he was a good guy and the fact that his best friend and his brother are guilty of murder and in jail is never really explored. What a waste. Something everyone complained about was Lamiroir not telling her children her real identity and the pianist being charged with murder even though it's obvious it's not him, because Shu Takumi didn't write the plot twist with the shark dude like he wanted to iirc. >I'll probably play any AA game that comes out because I'm such a stan for the series
Same. They confirmed AA7 for the Switch, or at least a new entry in the Ace Attorney series so I'm looking forward to it.
Anyone into Horror games?
I've played resident evil 7 and Paranormal activity in VR recently and I've never experienced something so intense before.
I wish they would do a Gantz videogame with VR. Look at this promo they did for the movie and tell me if it doesn't look cool
Future trilogy sucks but AAI2 is the best game in the series despite being a spin-off. Apollo Justice fucked up everything.
I don't think Apollo Justice ruined the series. Personally I'd say that the interesting characters and plot points that come from AA4 got ruined in AA5 and 6. I hated the explanations about Apollo in AA6 and I think it retroactively ruined parts of AA4 for me, it just felt out of place.
I cannot believe we finally got a release date for KH3, i'm so hyped for it, i've been waiting so many years.
I do hope they release an edition for ps4 with all the previous games so i can refresh my memory without having to change disks/buy 4 different games though.
This years E3 was pretty good so far, certainly A LOT better than last years train wreck, i'm mostly excited for Kingdom Hearts 3 and Cyberpunk 2077 though.
What are you girls more hyped for so far?
On the kh3 hype train. I think the collection edition will come out much later than the kh3 release, so you're probably better off getting the 1.5+2.5 remix and playing that before next year (which is my plan, I'm close to finishing kh1 again).
Other things I'm piqued on: Cyberpunk 2077, Death's Gambit, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
I agree with you. Apollo Justice wasn't badly done, loved hobo Phoenix and it was a nice way to pass on the series onto a new generation of characters. Bringing back Phoenix (and how cases were handled in AA5) ruined the franchise for me at least
What are your opinions on Smash Ultimate miners?
No complaints. I think it’s great.
I know people are generally upset about the lack of new characters but with so many playable fighters in one game, honestly I think it’s completely reasonable.
I liked hobo!Phoenix too. I think people didn't like him mostly because they felt like him being a competent and well-known attorney at the end of AA3 got ruined but I love plot twists and suspens and that's what all this series is all about, so I loved it. I didn't think he was as OOC as people made him out to be, I mean when you ignore is internal monologues in the trilogy and see how the other characters see him (especially the witnesses), he also seems to be a weird scheming guy who's hiding something.
Also, I'm really looking forward to Smash Ultimate but I don't have a Switch yet. Seeing that all the characters are here makes me kind of glad I didn't get SSB4 on the 3DS because that would mean buying DLCs for some of the characters but not even all of them. I'm also looking forward to FE16 and I really need Nintendo or Intelligent System to confirm whether the character designer really is Kurahana Chinatsu because having the Togainu no Chi and Utapri artist on Fire Emblem is just hilarious to me, even though I love her art.
