Whell

At the moment i'm getting all of the solo tours done on guitar hero, my sisters went ahead and did the bulk of the band mode toghether while i was asleep, which made me just a little sad so now i'm going to ditch them for solo tour  :mad:

Well, we actually beat band mode toghether but still, i missed a big chunk of it .-.

I was in the middle of Paper mario a little bit ago, i should probably pick that up soon >.>

I've been playing a couple of games on the DS. I'm in the middle of Ring of Fates at the moment, however my brother decided that he wanted to play chrono trigger so now the location of ROF is unknown  :mad:

I have been dabbling in the Chrono Trigger, seems solid and rather deserving of all of those titles people give it, i haven't done any serious playing of it yet (I'm only in that screwed up church in the moment ._o)

I'm working my through the extra missions on TWEWY, but i don't really have the time for that lately considering all of the above though ._o

Oh yes and Fable II too.

Yeah, i do play most of these sparsely with one being dominant over all (Right now i've been playing more guitar hero than anything else, likely to change once i separate my brother from ROF  :mad:) and i do have a lot of free time, so that's how i manage all of this  :mad:

If you're curious as to why ROF is probably never going to be within my grasp ( :mad:) again, please read this:
Spoiler for:
ALRIGHT SO THIS ONE DAY I'M PLAYING ROF AND I'M HAVING A RATHER SPLENDID TIME AND THEN I DECIDE MAYBE IT'S TIME TO SLEEP. THE NEXT DAY MY BROTHER COMES OUT OF HIS ROOM, PLAYING THE DS AND WHEN I ASK HIM WHERE ROF IS, HE SAYS HE NEVER TOUCHED IT (physically impossible, considering both of my sisters have not touched the DS, and he had the opportunity to grab it whilst watching Trailer Park Boys at like three in the morning, and if he's on the DS he'd either have to take it out of the port or be playing it at that very moment) OR IF I ASK HIM IF HE'S SEEN IT IN HIS ROOM, HE DENIES IT. I CANNOT THINK OF ANY ULTERIOR MOTIVE HE MIGHT HAVE FOR HIDING IT FROM ME(Especially since he has Chrono Trigger, and he wouldn't really have a reason to conspire behind my back just to play some game, especially since he'd usually just ask) SO MOST LIKELY HE'S JUST TOO LAZY TO TAKE IT OFF THE TABLE OR DESK OR FLOOR OR WHATEVER IN ORDER TO GIVE IT TO ME  :mad:


anyways it sort of sucks ._.

I haven't gotten very far yet - I just got it and so I am only an hour in. It seems interesting, though. The first part is really annoying because your character talks to someone, and then a minute later it gos into a flashback of the conversation you had one minute ago, and it does that repeatedly for the first like, half hour. I will report back once I get a little more of the game done.

@Forty - sure, but not anytime soon, I have to start doing some school.

I stopped playing tf2 and gmod until the apartment picks up FiOs here soon. Until then, I'm plaing threw Disgaea 1. While my roommate plays through 2, when he's done, I'll play through 2 while he goes through 3, while my other roommate plays through 1. Then I'll play 3, the other will play 2, and my one roommate would probably just go back to playing Fallout 3.

Crysis is great. People only say it's bland because they're trying to sound like "refined video game connosouirs". The graphics are pretty, yes, but most people don't understand why Crysis is so requirements heavy.

The truth is, Crytek wanted to make the game future-proof, so they decided to make the highest settings nearly impossible to use on this gen's hardware. Truthfully, nobody is supposed to play it on very high, or even high, really. They knew this when they made it. They only included mind-blowing graphics in the game so that in 5 years, when you have new hardware, Crysis isn't just another old game that you have fond memories of playing. You can actually load it up and it looks completely better than you remember it, and it holds up to other games of the next gen.

Currently, I'm going back and replaying Xenogears.
Such a good decision, man. Now, I know a lot of hardcore Xenogears fans disdain the Xenosagas, but I love them just as much. Those games blew my mind. Though I don't think my mind was ever quite able to cope with the strangeness of some of the elements. Every so often I wake up in the middle of the night and think. . .
Spoiler for:
"0_0 . . . Jesus was in that game. . . and one of the main characters was an angel that guarded his tomb. . . and another one was Mary Magdalene. . . .wtf?"

I seriously love them though. Not the most action packed. And it felt mostly like a movie. But the Jungian and gnostic themes kept it beyond fresh in my book.

Yeah, it's pretty good. The save system is atrocious, though. I don't mind check points, but when they're an hour of game play apart...*sigh*
Give me. D:

Ocarina of time, of course  :mad:

Majora's Mask is better :mad:

No it's not. :mad:

Both of them are awesome.  :mad:

Crysis is great. People only say it's bland because they're trying to sound like "refined video game connosouirs". The graphics are pretty, yes, but most people don't understand why Crysis is so requirements heavy.

The truth is, Crytek wanted to make the game future-proof, so they decided to make the highest settings nearly impossible to use on this gen's hardware. Truthfully, nobody is supposed to play it on very high, or even high, really. They knew this when they made it. They only included mind-blowing graphics in the game so that in 5 years, when you have new hardware, Crysis isn't just another old game that you have fond memories of playing. You can actually load it up and it looks completely better than you remember it, and it holds up to other games of the next gen.

Sounds reasonable, TBH, I'm not looking for anything "new and fresh" atm, I want something that reminds me of Quake 2. Stuff like that. A solid story would be niec too.

Never played Majora's Mask, but OoT is fo shizzle a lot of fun. The floor masters scared the hell out of me,too.  ;8

You should definitely give it a play. The story in MM is much darker than OoT, and while the game may be short ( 4 dungeons only ), you will still keep playing it thanks to the larger variety of side-quest MM has.

My DSFire card broke because of a horrible sink mishap, so I only have 3 DS games to play now. Luckily, they're all pretty good.

Ecclesia is pretty fun. I'm a huge fan of Castletroid games, and this one is a bit of an expansion on the theme. It's more like Castlevania 2, in that you're traveling to a bunch of smaller zones. At first it seems really easy, (except the bosses, which are excruciating,) but things ramp up pretty well once you get to the main castle. I'm really obsessive about collecting in these games, and collecting is less of a chore here because it seems that they increased your odds of finding rare treasure drops and glyphs. I don't mind the glyph system, but it seems like I'm sticking with two sets of glyphs for most of the game. I'm almost done with it, so I might post something about the whole thing afterward.

I'm also playing the Final Fantasy 4 remake, which is pretty much exactly what I expected. There is one thing that was kind of annoying to me, and I don't remember if this was in the SNES or GBA versions, since it's been so long since I've played either. When Cecil becomes a paladin on Mt. Ordeals, the game drops his level all the way back down to 1. This means that all the time you spend grinding him before this is just wasted. It's a small thing, but it was a little discouraging. Oh, and the voice work is surprisingly good for a Square game.

Lastly, I'm finally getting around to play Phantom Hourglass, which is blowing me away. Of course Nintendo is going to find the best way to use their own hardware, but the controls are so intuitive that I didn't realize until about halfway through the game that I wasn't using any of the face buttons, save bringing up my map every so often. I love this game so much that I almost don't want to beat it.

Bouncing between a couple of games, but since my PS2 and Wii are at home (all I could bring was my DS because neither my roomie or I were bringing a TV), mostly they're DS/GBA games.

Playing through FFV Advance, only my second time through, oddly enough. I missed this when I was playing through the series originally- my knowledge of Final Fantasy went FF3, FF4, FF6... etc. So it's nice to play through it. I enjoy the job system, especially the fact that Mimes/Freelancers get all of the abilities and stats of mastered jobs, and in the end I ended up grinding through my jobs quite quickly. The last room of the Void before Exdeath? Seriously, 26-30 AP a kill is nice, and then when you kill the movers and see 199 AP for a win? Beautiful. Seriously, though, getting the jobs maxed is worth it- I managed to slaughter Omega with a team at level 40. Spellblade Thundaga + Rapid Fire ftw.

Another game I found myself coming back to was FFTA2 (yes, I'm on a Final Fantasy kick of late). Honestly, the downside to both TA and TA2 (I haven't played the original yet) is that once you've beaten the game, the few missions and stuff they throw in afterwards really kinda pales to everything you did up to that point. It's like saying "Congratulations, you beat the game, now GTFO." It makes me just a little sad inside. But overall, it's a nice game, and one that still brought me back just 'cause I have the completionist need to finish every mission.

I'm with you on this one. The engine alone is incredible, and it will be the game's biggest legacy. Particle clouds, weather systems, bit-by-bit destructible buildings, light that filters through bullet holes in foliage, trees that aren't invincible(>_<).

Well, you know how fanboys are. Nothing will ever live up to anything that's already good.

But I think it's very solid, and very well-done. However, it's still a Resident Evil game, so of course the story and characters are lame and boring, and stereotypical, and etc.

But yeah. Looks great. Plays rather awesomely. Co-op is a blast.

Commence large post ~

Crysis: I'd only ever heard about its graphics before, heard it described as a benchmark rather than a game. The first hour or so didn't really interest me much, but once you get into it I'd say it's pretty interesting. It's definitely better than Far Cry imo.

Crysis: Warhead: Short, but it's branded as a standalone expansion so I'll let it slide. It seems less polished than the original Crysis, especially in the cutscenes. Half the voice acting sounds like they only bothered doing one take for it, and their attempt at a history subplot sank. The ice stuff was cool though, and again the graphics are just awesome.

Fallout 3: Awesome ;o; I agree with all the good reviews. I played through it as a nice person the first time. The great thing about f3 is its replay falue, I'm playing through again now as an asshole instead =o My only gripe is that it keeps crashing.

F.E.A.R. 2: Was pretty fun, I won't be playing it again too. Considering it uses the same engine as the original, it looks great, and especially SOUNDs great. After a while though it suffered the same as the original, it just gets tedious =( and the scares quickly lose their effect when the game basically tells you it's about to try and scare you.

Its good enough for one play, true. And I couldn't agree more about the how they're about to tell you that there's a scary scene coming ahead. It lost its quality comparing it to the first one. :\

Cool, thinking of trying it out. I actually thought Farcry wasn't very good. =x
Played it for a couple hours then never touched it again.

It's a blast.  :lol:

I tried out the demo and thought it was kinda fun, but I wouldn't buy. Didn't scare me much, except for once towards the end of the demo where you see the living tree then it all goes red and you get choked.

These games have such a simple concept, but the way that everything is done is done so well. I actually completed the first one, found out that the remakes of parts III and VI had english patches, so I went and got both of them. Now I'm in the middle of part II, and there are tons of improvements over the first. If anyone knows of anymore Nihon Falcom games with English patches, please let me know. My interest is piqued.

Just beat the 2nd Ys last night, and started on The Ark Of Napishtim. Impressions so far:

-The world is lovely to look at. Using sprites on a 3d background is nothing new, but the sprites are so well made that you can hardly tell that they aren't models.
-The combat is great. I liked ramming into enemies in the first two, and I was a little wary that sword-swinging would make the battles more generic. It hasn't.
-It maintains the soul of the originals in many ways:
   -You go from dealing 1 damage to an enemy to being able to kill it in 2 hits within 2 or 3 levels.
   -The strange items that you find and know nothing about until they become relevant are still there, which was one thing that made the originals so much fun for me.
   -The character interactions are surprisingly enjoyable for just being a jpeg and scrolling text. Even most generic NPC's have something interesting to say.
-The boss battles are incredible. They're never just hack-fests, and they're all fully rendered with glorious 3d models.
-There are multiple carrots dangled in front of you at all times. You might say, "I'm just going to get one more level," but then you realize that you only need 25 more gems to upgrade your sword, so you continue fighting. Once you have enough, you go to town and get ready to move on, but then you notice that the next armor is only 200 more gold than what you have, so you go back to fighting. You buy a sweet shield, and then see that you're close to another level, so it's back to the field with you.

Lol, Eternal Sonata any good?

I picked up baroque and ff4. I'm enjoying ff4 a considerably more considerable amount, and actually i mean to say it's not comparable to baroque because i have found baroque to be repetitive and confusing. the whole randomly generated 3d map thing wasn't a good idea, and neither was leaving you in some random place hoping you'll figure it out yourself is also not a good idea. Which makes me sad, because the concept was amazing.

Post by: Exer0 on April 01, 2009, 02:00:51 AM
Eternal Sonata is good if you can handle games that look girly but really aren't. The fighting style is okay, you're basically timed and any attacks you do shorten your time. Though I found it to be quite easy. I only got a game over once, and it was because I wasn't paying attention haha. It was worth the buy, I would say. Yet, I also work at GameStop so I get a discount haha.

Why is it pissing you off?

It's a ripped mac version and there's a few glitches in it. Like the party AI keeps failing and only half the party will follow the walking commands and the other half just stands there, sometimes saving fails and I have to delete and recreate the temp folder (which I found out that if I do that in a zone and don't leave it before I delete and remake the Temp folder, all the loot that I looted before I deleted the temp folder comes back but I keep what's in my inventory, aka, get rich fast.), also it periodically freezes in fullscreen, and sometimes just crashes. Then of course, I've never played it before so it's kind of hard to pick up, though I'm learning fast, it's all just a little confusing. Good game though.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Holkeye on April 02, 2009, 01:33:14 AM
Ouch. That really sucks, because that's one of my favorite games. One tip, if you haven't figured it out: Save often. I mean like after every fight. Also, use the pause button a lot, too.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Grafikal on April 02, 2009, 02:24:21 AM
Oh yeah. I quick save after basically every fight and rest whenever I can. The fights at the moment aren't toooo bad, but I occasionally use the pause button to do certain tasks mid-fight.

I finished Oblivion! Like, beat every faction quest, and all the DLC, and Shivering Isles (which was AMAZING by the way), and even a few user-created mods like Lost Spires and some Vampire Realism mods. I got to a point where I could kill people by not attacking because I had damage and spell reflect enchantments so powerful that, in combination to various resistance enchantments, no damage would be incurred to me, and most of it would be reflected back to my attacker. I got to the point where turning the difficulty slider up only made battles last an eternity because neither me nor my enemy would take any damage.

 Now I can finally be productive and do other things, like eat, and work out, and write music, and sleep!

That's how I feel, I have like five characters, tow I don't use and three I play a lot. I started a Battle Mage out of curiosity and it's really cool, the Blade Major skill is going to waste since I use axes but it's a lot of fun. I only got as far as beating Kvatch last night because there's so much to do. I don't have SI but I'm planning on getting the GOTY edition.
It wastes far too much time.  :'(

1: Final Fantasy II
2: Legend of Kartia
3: Mario: Legend of the Seven Stars
4: Mario Sunshine
5: Prince of Persia
6: Assassin's Creed

I really love playing Assassin's Creed, I don't know why, but something calls me to it. Mario Sunshine is a great game and I adore the graphics and gameplay, that and the levels. Legend of Kartia is a battle-battle and more battle game with lots of Dialogue, but I really like it for some odd reason. And I'm currently trying to get all the orbs in Prince of Persia...

I'd replay Phantasy Star for Genesis, but my power cord is fried. Gotta get a new one :}

I was playing FFVII but now I'm done. :D

I was looking through some stuff and I saw something worth mentioning:
Quote from: @ the ending
One thing I've never understood is that Red XIII was the last of his kind, but somehow there are 2 of his kind running? beside him.

I guess scientists helped him with that matter. Probably 'formed' another...whatever he is.
(something I wanna say real quick-like)
Also, does anyone feel like Red XIII was suppose to be like a Native American? Or something close to it? I sure did.

@KitKatKan:

Really, what platform? You'll enjoy it, its a great game ^^

What's StarCraft? Is it like Star wars or...halo?

Starcraft is a Real Time Strategy game, so neither. It's along the lines of Warcraft (the original ones, not WoW), Battle for Middle Earth, Command & Conquer, all the Total War games, Age of Empires (and all variations), and a good deal more.

They're basically the games where you have a little starting place with a couple workers, and you tell them to build you houses, farms, barracks, etc. After you build up everything, you SLAY THE ENEMY WITH YOUR SKILL. Of course, it's a lot more in-depth than that, but hopefully you've heard of those kinds of games before :lol:

On topic: Zenonia, Dynasty Warriors 6 (friggin all characters level 50 achievement), and Rock Band 2.

Oh, I play those kinds of games ^^ mostly PC stuff from the early 2000 and 90s, but they are still nice :>

Rock Band, eh? I only own Guitar Hero Aerosmith, which is classic and awesome, but I'd really like to own Rock Band one day.
Is it better than Guitar Hero?

I mainly like RB more because of the song choice. The gameplay is a lot more fluid, too (no distracting fretboards), and I like how you each fail on your own time (as opposed to GH4's one bar, one failure-ness)</unbiased comment>

And a couple of my friends have it :D

I'm surprised you haven't heard of it. It's what unites Korea.

Starcraft is going terribly. I'm on vista so i'm assuming that's why it's deciding to screw up RIGHT AT THE PSYCHIC-BOMB THING mission.

I'll take another crack at it - If I'm lucky, I might make it to the end before it fucks up. Sigh.

I'm on the Gameboy advance for FF6 - the actual gameboy advance version, because my DS is missing and I have no SP nor Micro.

Therefore, I have no backlight, but it's an interesting experience, to say the least >.>

I'll let you guys know when my eyes start bleeding. I'll go to the first forum I know I'm at and type to the best of my ability. I imagine it'll be like so:
Spoiler for:
pjg lau jo giuws ,u euews areb;eedomgg sp O cam
t really see/ Ues. tjat
s rwrogjtgjt. ,u cp,,amd pf tje leubpard fao;s of O cam
t tale tje casia; g;amce at ot/ sPRRU?
Spoiler for:
That was meant to be something like "Hi guys, as you can see my eyes are bleeding, and as you can also see, without the odd casual glance at the keyboard my typing fails. Sorry?"


Also, come to think of it, seeing the SCREEN is kind of important too.

Anyways, if I manage to get to ANY FORUM AT ALL, and you see that in said forum, I have typed nonsense, You will know.

Don't worry. I figure i can randomly click around until - oh crap, the new topic button's a bit small for that.


Nevermind.

Decided to go back to FF: Dawn of Souls instead of V. Currently beat FFI, completed the bestiary, beat every Souls of Chaos dungeon, and reached all Lv. 99.

I'm now about halfway through FFII, and I have to say that I actually like it a lot. The leveling system is a bit odd at first, but it's pretty fun once you get the hang of it. I don't really understand why so much shit has been talked about it. I'm enjoying it.

FUN. It's a DS game where there are all these mission-type things that you do (rhythmically, of course). Like there are these screaming children, and you have to make your screaming child sing along with theirs. That kind of stuff. It's hard to describe, but it's really fun.

There is no job system in VI. And you start out with 3 characters (though 2 of
them don't count). .-.
You're thinking of V, which wasn't all that spectacular.

And you should try playing it again, because VI is arguably the best Final Fantasy ever made.

So Valkyrie Profile 2 is a really good game, the battle system gets a little repetative after a little while though. Basically, you have 4 characters in your party at any given time and each character (in battle) is assigned a button on the playstation controller. (X, O, Triangle, or Square) Each character is equipped (pre-battle) with up to 3 different attacks. So for instance if you press O, that character will use their first attack equipped, then press it again to use the second attack. Basically, when you get to level 15+ it becomes more about just mashing the shit out of those buttons. Side note though: Each attack uses up a certain amount of AP once used so I suppose there's some strategy involved but seriously, just mash the shit out of the heavy hitters. Also you start with 100 AP (100 is also the max amount) at the beginning of each battle unless you get ambushed which is way easy to do. Never the less, Valkyrie Profile 2 is a good game and the story is awesome. I like Norse mythology anyways.

Wii sports 2 is so good. I bought it when it came out but never really cared for it, then I discovered Air Sports which is probably the most fun I've ever had with a video game in a long time.

I also finished off KH Chain of Memories the other day, but didn't really finish it. I beat the last boss, but no matter how hard I try, the game glitches just after I collect his drops (which you have to collect to continue). :mad: so I haven't seen the ending.   -    youtube awayyyy (/'o')/

The PSP version only came out like 3 months ago. How could you have given up on an english version already? Also, the voice acting is great, and this is the first game in a long time that I've actually laughed aloud at. My favorite scene so far:

After talking to a cow (mooboo) every chapter:
Mooboo: "Mooboo..."

Just beat Kingdom Hearts again, and started up Kingdom Hearts II, which I've never played.

And after 5 minutes, I came to the sad realization that I need to play Chain of Memories, and then 358/2 Days to actually understand what the hell happened between the two games, and why I'm suddenly playing as a new character. :(

But oh well, I'm already about half way through 358/2 Days, and they released Chain of Memories for PS2 so now I don't have to play the gay GBA version.

So yeah, in short: Kingdom Hearts.
Title: Re: What the hell are you playing?
Post by: Holkeye on February 16, 2010, 06:12:28 AM
Chain of Memories sucks ass. Seriously, it's one of the worst games I've ever played. I don't know about the PS2 version, but I do know that there's a patch online to remove the boring card-based battle mechanic.

Here's what I'm playing:

Bionic Commando: Rearmed

Post by: Zylos on February 16, 2010, 06:31:19 AM
I haven't played 358/2 Days yet. Chain of Memories is a much appreciated filler to understand what went on between the two games, and I think it was used to tide fans over until they could release KH2. 358/2 Days is a secondary filler that just explains the loose ends a little better, I think. Is it any good?

Rasse and I played it for a bit when he was here last. We picked it up from a bargain bin for $20 or something (came with RE4). The battle system was probably the best in a game like that but the story was pretty bad. I haven't played it all that much though.
Title: Re: What the hell are you playing?
Post by: Nightwolf on February 16, 2010, 02:01:58 PM

Title: Re: What the hell are you playing?
Post by: Moss. on February 16, 2010, 03:34:36 PM
358/2 Days is actually a pretty great game. The graphics are fantastic for a DS game, and the combat is a direct copy of the main games. The only drawback is that the story is a little slow, and things get a tad boring sometimes. You spend most of your time revisiting worlds you've already been to, as if you hadn't been to them before. Sometimes you're just fighting enemies, sometimes you're doing "recon," which is retarded because, as I said, anybody who's played the other games knows what the hell Agrabah is.

And yeah, I heard Chain of Memories was awful, but the PS2 remake looks (graphically) just like the main games and all the ratings say it's pretty decent.
Title: Re: What the hell are you playing?
Post by: strike on February 16, 2010, 08:07:42 PM
having "stole" and played chain of memories on the gba i'd say it was pretty good, but at the end there is a lot of grinding to do for 9 cards and stuff. luckily the kid i borrowed it from and never saw again had a save right before the boss with a level 90. i didn't play through the riku story though.
Title: Re: What the hell are you playing?

Title: Re: What the hell are you playing?
Post by: diaskeaus on February 17, 2010, 01:29:29 AM
Chain of Memories is pretty intense for the PS2, but I don't know about the GBA.  It's a lot of multi-tasking, while running around on the battlefield and trying not to get hit while choosing which cards you are going to use.  I liked it but it's a bit weird -- though Kingdom Hearts can sometimes veer into the metaphysical, it was a bit much for me.

I enjoyed the 'recon' aspect of 358/2 probably the most, actually.  That, and the little jobs  (for example, in the beginning where you do jobs and stuff that doesn't require killing, like making mail runs and hitting the ball with the keyblade).  Mostly because the rest of the game required so much combat, it did get heavy at times.

I was a bit disappointed with the story; they could have easily replaced the text in the levels with an actual storyline instead of just commenting on the situation again and again.

I agree, the PS2 version is pretty intense.
But I love the story; I'm a complete sucker for anything metaphysical.
It just makes me so happy when a story is more abstracted and not so "save world by beating evil guy who wants to destroy world because he is evil."
Which is why I love Legend of Mana.

Yeah, I have a lot of consoles. I also have a Game cube, but that isn't used much anymore.

So far, I have played every Kingdom Hearts except the new one coming out, Birth By Sleep.
KH: ReCOM is pretty good. The only thing that pisses me off is that some attacks are harder to dodge than in the GBA version and others are almost impossible to dodge. But it does have extra cards/abilities/Bosses that were not in the GBA version.
358/2 days is fun until you beat it 100% Then you begin to lose interest.
KHII is probably the best KH I have played up to date.

Mass Effect (Playing as a Soldier on the setting below hardcore now...it's still fairly easy but I only just beat Eden Prime. Hoping to play a renegade this time around.)
New Super Mario Bros. (This is one of the rawest and purest forms of entertainment I've had in a long time; it's just SO MUCH FUN.)
Muramasa The Demon Blade
Metroid Prime

I beat Mass Effect last night. I was surprised how short it was - I think I beat it in 21 hours or something (and I did a ton of side quests too!). The boss of the game was also very easy, and rather predictable in terms of what it ended up being. Overall, I loved the game, but I think it could have used a better interface, especially for the missions and side quests. I cannot wait to buy Mass Effect 2, however I think I need to wait until school is over though. :-[

Only a couple hours in, but so far it's awesome. I got the bundle so I have a classic controller pro, which feels a lot like the PS2 controller, so it made adjusting a lot easier since I played the original on PS2.

Nice ;8 Though I played Afternoon of Darkness, they're basically the same thing. I love that game.

I am playing POKEMON SILVER. The original one. P: I'm going to play semi-competitively with my friend. It was a b**** replacing the internal battery, though.

Also, I completed Hero 30 last night and I am in the middle of doing Knight 30 at the moment. For a game which is about saving the world in thirty seconds, the storyline is pretty deep.

Okay, I've completed Half Minute Hero plus the bonus mode. I have to say this is one of the best PSP games I have ever played, next to Patapon 2. I still need to find stuff I missed in the game though.

Oh and
Spoiler for:
Hero 3 is not as hard as it looks. I thought it was going to be stupid hard, but it was actually pretty balanced for a mode which only gives you three seconds. :X

I guess I'll start Hexys Force next on PSP, but at the moment I am playing Phantasy Star Blue Burst online (schthack).

Team Fortress 2.

I might try Lost Horizon. But I hear it's a bitch on your computer, even with high-ish specs. Shattered Horizons. It actually runs very well on my system, and it's okay, but I don't think I'll buy it. Maybe if it drops to $5 some time, but the game itself just falls rather flat once you get past the initial gravity situation. The zero gravity is cool and all, but the weapons are unimaginative and boring, and the Cthulhu damn recoil or whatever the fuck it is is awful on every weapon but the pistol. It is pretty beyond all reasonable hate, however.

And then I bought Borderlands.

So, now I'm juggling ME2 and Borderlands. I gave up on GTA IV, it was annoying the shit out of me. Overwhelming size does not cover up shitty gameplay.

Transformers: War for Cybertron.

For as little press as it got, this game is surprisingly enjoyable. I'm sure most people threw it into the "Eww another Transformers game ewwww..." category right off the bat, but the gameplay mechanics are solid & the online is crazy fun with a group.

Sadly a little game called Term Paper, it runs off of MS Word, though Open Office can handle it. I wouldn't reccomend it, the whole thing is just one long grind and it's really hard to get a high score.

I like their usual references to other stuff and their non-serious attitude that's also kinda serious. lol. And yeah, it really is easy. But NIS isn't really known for making hard games. They really only make games that require heavy grinding. I mean, still benefiting from dying? I've never played a roguelike before, but in any game, that shouldn't really be the case, lol. I suppose...

Finally beat him with Ven a few days ago =D Took me about 7 minutes of straight dodging his flares & meteors while he was invisible, then I got lucky and he used that X-move like 5 times in a row...

Chrono Trigger DS

I just finished all of the endings except the secret bonus Dream Devourer ending, and it reminded me of how great the story was. I'd definitely have to say that it is my favorite RPG of all time, and the DS translation is just so much better than the snes one that I remember from my childhood.

Infinite Undiscovery

I'm finally getting around to a couple more of those random 360 exclusive RPGs... And I have to say, for as much bad press as it got (Well deserved, considering the potential it had before getting shafted for SO4's sake), Undiscovery's a fantastic game. I'm just not looking forward to the 30+ hours it's gonna take me to get my GS to an increment of 5 again (There's a 1 point achievement for finishing the secret dungeon on the hardest difficulty. Mean.).

No, you know nothing about videogames if you seriously think that unbalanced terribad pile of shit is better than anything, the multiplayer is full of cheaters and the game is dominated by something that should be a last resort. whatever is left of Infinity ward needs a serious fucking reality check on this thing called gamebalance.

there are so overpowered perks and guns in that game, these guys are hacks that showed up for one meeting to discuss new perks and were like "hey man lets make a perk that basically gives you infinite ammo and another perk which lets you knife from like 10 feet away; oh oh and how about we make all the assault rifles have no sway except the AK so that you can totally snipe bitches with them from across the map. How about we increase move speed greatly compared to our other games so not only is mapcontrol worthless but it makes it so lag is even a bigger deal because of our host system" and then instead of testing balance with a beta they just did bugtesting and shipped it.

and if you meant campaign you're a retarded mouthbreather because the blackops campaign was really well written for a cod game, ESPECIALLY compared to MW2.

Final Fantasy 12

Haters gonna hate.

They're never gonna make anymore that are gonna measure up to 6 and 9 (in my opinion), but i dont see anything wrong with playing the new ones anyway :P

well....speaking of "haters gonna hate" ....theres no need to get so serious, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and anyways, dont act like black ops doesnt have campers and people who know how to use and abuse perks because they do. Personally, i like the weapons and the campaign and multiplayer better in mw2, but black ops has an amazing zombie mode and i love the wager mode. but i forsee that we are just gonna have to agree to disagree:/

yeah but at least treyarch thinks about their perks for more than five fucking minutes and ask themselves "how could people abuse this and ruin the online experience" before shipping the fucking game. I seriously can't take anyone who thinks mw2 is good seriously. not only that you'll shrug off my points and assume I'm just hating to hate so what the fuck ever.

edit: not only that but commando ruined any short range play. it's removal makes the game better by default.

commando alone could have made mw2 unplayable and worthless. unfortunately it had plenty of help. it turned every single one of those tiny fucking rooms on the maps into a knife fight.

okay, how about this: modern warfare 2 is an amazing game for people new to fps's, its fun and easy to pick up, and when theyve got some experience under their belt, then they can move up to black ops. I have noticed that it is harder to play black ops, especially how it actually takes time to master shooting down planes an helicopters, which i boasted as my job in the previous game. The one thing that I didnt like was that i personally thought that the graphics for black ops werent as good, but as you said, it does have a great campaign mode and an online that is harder to abuse.

Argument is moot because CoD has been the same game over and over since 2. And I know that this is a generalization, Strike, so don't get all pissy about it.

Anyway, I'm still playing Revenant Wings. It's super easy, but it is very addicting. I just passed 50% of the missions, and I have all but the locked out Espers. I also pre-ordered a ton of games that are coming out soon:

Dragon Quest VI (it comes with a Slime plush!)
Dragon Age 2
Two Worlds 2
Dead Space 2
and the big one, The Witcher 2 Special Edition, which is $129.99.

I've been playing Secret of Mana on my iTouch. I generally play through my breaks at work or when I'm really bored at home lol. I like this version more. It's a bit more difficult and a fair amount of the graphics have been redone. Also the small bit at the beginning where you can meet the Girl for the first time via a kidnapping and giant cooking pot has been removed from what I could tell. Also some dialog has been changed for the better.

Yeah I own the snes version too. It's certainly easier to control with a controller. The itouch version has some hotkeys you can set for shortcuts though, instead of having to keep opening the circle menu. I just set the girl's cure, the sprite's useful magic and then the boy with an axe, whip, and sword to switch out for the various obstacles. There's only 4 hotkeys though so I only set a whip OR axe depending on what obstacles I'll encounter. I've beaten the snes version more than enough times to know.

So I picked up the Wii Zelda and played for a bit until I beat the ending (was close already) and now I've started my third run through Final Fantasy 12 and started another new run through my millionth run, of FF6.

Still playing FF9. I don't want it to go too fast xD

I wish my PC could run PC games. I could play all my Star Wars games and all my other PC games :(

I ... kind of forget.  I think I'm about half way through, as well. Honestly, I find the story a bit lacking. Or, like, just almost barely not a bit lacking. Being able to converse with your allies and getting different responses on each map really spices it up, and adds a much, much needed level of character interaction (the the original didn't have at all), but ... I dunno, the story was never really explained to me. I mean, it's interesting, and fun to play, but I'd like someone to throw me a bone already.

How is Fable 3 on PC?
It's what I expected. It's been a while since I've played 2, but the world seems way more open and there seems to be more to explore at each area than in Fable 2. I was disappointed in the lack of content after beating the game, but they've just released some DLC yesterday so I'm playing through that. The DLC is actually worth it. So I'm happy about the game again. Combat is actually pretty fun. The flourishes are FUCKING INTENSE. You get some insane finishing attacks if the enemy is low on life. It'll happen randomly or occasionally when you use a flourish. For instance, I just found this one yesterday, if small hobbe is low on life and goes to attack you with a jumping attack and you're wielding a pistol as a weapon - You'll hold your arm out pointing at it, it jumps at you and swallows your gun, hand and arm. Then you blast it through the asshole across the screen for instant death, lol. Like I said though, that kind of stuff happens randomly but if you've got like 30 enemies on you at 1 time your likely to see 2 or 3 of those special finishers. A lot of the times when you flourish or do those finishers, the game will slow down and zoom in on that action making it feel a bit more intense and also allowing you to watch some of the interesting moves. Different finishers for different enemies and weapons you use.

Money is still pretty easy to get after you start buying properties. The menu is actually really unique. You don't pull up a menu when you hit escape, you teleport immediately to a room that has 4 doors. In the main room you can access the world map, option/game menu, your dog stuff, gifts you get etc. Then there's an armory room where you go into to change your weapons, a changing room for changing clothes, saving sets you wear so you can quickly change to a new set, editing your character, undressing and changing the color or dying your clothes. The 3rd room is like your achievement room. It shows off your trophies you have, what achievements you've earned via Xbox live or Windows Live and it also is your vault. As you gain more money there's a big pit in there that'll grow a mountain of gold. When you become ruler you can also transfer fund from your personal account to the kingdom account or viceversa. Going from castle to you is considered evil though. The other way is good. The last room is for multiplayer. You can edit the options, give gifts or join games from there. I haven't noticed really any bugs with the game besides hanging on a couple loading screens throughout the whole game and the fair amount of obvious graphical issues that all Fables have had. Like when digging or bending over with your character the weapons mounted on your back will appear to enter your character's mesh. It looks kinda funny. It's just tiny things like that. Sometimes your dog will get hung up on a small block and not lead you to a digspot or treasure he finds. That's easily fixed by just getting him to find a new path there though.

Overall I'm happy they added the DLC, otherwise it wouldn't be that good as compared to the other Fable games.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: pacdiggity on June 05, 2011, 10:40:57 AM
Wow, that reply was comprehensive. I loved the flourishes, it made the combat so much more interesting. I really loved that hobbe one too, it made me feel like a god whenever I did it. I did think it was a bit annoying how it slowed down every time a flourish happened, because they actually happen quite frequently.
I agree about the money. It was easy, I see all these people complaining everyone in their kingdom died because they didn't have enough money, because they didn't buy anything early on in the game. And I did like the sanctuary, I actually liked it so much I made a similar system in VX (I should probably release that >_<).
Really I only asked because I wanted to know what was different between the PC and 360 versions. Not much, it seems.

I should get that DLC.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Grafikal on June 05, 2011, 11:05:24 AM
I'm not really certain how it is on the XBox, but on the PC it's pretty simple. Hold in the LMB to charge a flourish, right click to use the AOE for spells or aim for the guns. We get hotkeys for F1 - F4 with the Potion, Food, Summon Potion and Time Potion. This was kind of annoying for me personally. I would have liked to rebound them to something else like 1 - 4 instead. I'm playing on my laptop, so I have the F keys, but I have to hold in the Function key as well which is at the bottom of the keyboard. So in the middle of battle it's annoying to have to stretch my hand across the keyboard to toss down a potion. We could rebind most other keys. I think there was options to rebind those ones but whenever I tried it said I couldn't, lol. The interact key is E. You do mostly anything by pressing or holding E. The hot keys in the sanctuary are also F1 - F4. Annoying for the same reason as above, but not as bad since I'm not rushing to drink a potion, hah.

Also, in the DLC they made the Bandit Camp functional now. So you can revisit it and sleep with their whores or play their shooting minigame and win a couple of badass guns. There's a rifle that has 3 unlockables and each one is the same. You gain money whenever you hit an enemy x3 if you unlock it all. Properly named "The Moneymaker". It's not powerful though. There's also a pistol which is the best in the game called "The Black Dragon". I forget its unlockables though. It's good though. As good as most rifles, but much faster. You just can't snipe anymore, not that you ever needed to though.

Umm, Oddworld again. Oddysee, since its fucking difficult. I invented something similar to a nuzlocke run. You may die twice in the entire run. You cannot kill a single mudokon.


I was considering making an oddworld platformer, using the abandoned sligstorm concept they have.


Other than that, I played Dead Rising 2 for the first time the other day. I luff it.

It's good, but it's persistently online and therefore you can't pause, even if you're playing solo. There's a surprising amount of violence for a T-rated game, too. Enemies become torrents of blood and organs upon death.

Yeah it will be, but nowhere near as buggy as Oblivion or Fallout 3/New Vegas. They're not using shitty GameByro so this will be a HUGE difference.

Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Dwarra? on August 21, 2011, 11:11:00 PM
Escavalier is a great pokemon and probably my favorite in the game, but you need to trade for him. Volcarona has high stats all around along with a special attack stat that will make you jizz in your pants, but it evolves at level 59 and the first form is a shitty larva. Accelgor when trained right will have the highest speed in black and white (and the highest speed in Pokemon in general if I'm not mistaken) and a decent special attack so you can sweep entire teams with the right moveset, but don't let it get hit. It's also created in the same trade Escavalier is. Then there is Durant, who I personally hate, but it has high attack, defense, and surprisingly speed. Everything else is shitty, but its only weakness is fire. You can only find them in Victory Road.

Shazam. Also gonna add in that I beat the elite 4 with a level 45 escavalier only, they're that overpowered.

Edit: Deoxys Speed Form has slightly higher speed than Accelgor.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: cozziekuns on August 22, 2011, 12:18:37 AM
Spoiler for Pokemon TourneyF**giness:
Escavalier is a good pokemon, but it's low speed puts it in a bad position, will die to a Charmander's Ember, and is almost outclassed by Scizor (I realise you can't get one in B/W without trading, just saiyan), who has Technician Bullet Punch and a higher speed stat while having relatively the same bulk. Good thing is that Escavalier has Megahorn, and a STAB 120 base power attack off 135 base attack is going to hurt anything (2HKO's the most defensive of Ferrothorn IIRC, and probably 2HKOs Lucario who Quad-Resists it). Again, not saying it's a bad poke, probably the best bug in Pokemon (bar Arceus-Bug, HeraBOSS and Scizor).

Accelgor is outpaced by Deo-S and it's resident bug Ninjask. 100 base Special attack with a Base 90 power STAB move as bread and butter move means it isn't going to be sweeping anytime soon, so you need to rely on the rest of your team to break holes in the opposing team and open up a sweep.

Durant doesn't have inheritly high attack (109 base), but has Hustle (80% accuracy for a 50% attack boost), and Hone Claws which can patch up the accuracy loss from Hustle while boosting it's attack even higher. It's 109 base speed is pretty cool, but just short of the 110 benchmark. It's biggest problem is it's lackluster special defense, which means any special attack pretty much wrecks it.

Volcarona is a monster, but it's quad-weak to Stealth Rocks (which no in-game trainer uses so whatever). Otherwise it has no flaws, except maybe it's lackluster bulk.

And how could you forget Scolipede... 112 speed, 90 attack made up by STAB Megahorn, and ok pretty crap defenses. Still a nice fast Choice Bander and Revenge Killer in general, and it has access to Spikes while actually being able to take a neutral hit (unlike Accelgor).

B/W's electrics are Flying Pikachu dude (who is terrible), Zebstrika, Galvantula, Eelektross, Thundurus and Zekrom.

Zekrom I don't want to talk about, and you have Black.

Thundurus has the best stats overall (125 Spatk, troll 111 Speed), even if it is quite frail. Nasty Plot set incredibly deadly.

Eeleketross has some bulk and stupid coverage, and also has levitate giving it no weaknesses (albeit with a lack of resistances, much like Sableye and Spiritomb). The Sub/Coil/Dragon Tail/Filler set is pretty cool if you have entry hazards supporting it.

Galvantula has STAB Thunder at 97.5% Accuracy thanks to Compoundeyes boost which helps to make up for it's lackluster 97 Special Attack, and a secondary STAB in Bug Buzz. It's pretty quick too (108 Speed off the top of my head), like most electrics (sorry Luxray).

Zebstrika has a high speed stat (116) and "decent" mixed offenses(100, 80), but in my opinion is outclassed by the rest of these electrics.

If you didn't want to see how much of a Pokemon Nerd I am, all I really said was that the best B/W electrics (excluding Zekrom) are Galvantula, Eeleketross and Thundurus.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Dwarra? on August 22, 2011, 12:49:30 AM
I actually never used Scolipede and I don't think I ever had trouble with them so I was never bothered to learn about them. Also everything about Escavalier is better than Scizor except for HP (which is the same) and speed, the fire weakness is pretty bad though.

I keep Zekrom around whenever I'm not playing against other people, then I'll switch him for an Eelektross because people always expect dragons, I hate using legendaries, and Zekrom's attacks strangely feel watered down.

Also cozzie what's your opinion on a Basculin with Rock-Head ability and Double Edge?
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: cozziekuns on August 22, 2011, 01:22:08 AM
Stat-wise, Escavalier is probably better, but it's only way of damaging steel types is Rock Smash, which is balls (A not very effective Megahorn actually does more than a super effective Rock Smash, if that says anything). Scizor gets Superpower, so he can dish out damage (sorta) against steels, though they're not that common in Black and White. Scizor also has a 90 Base Power (Factoring STAB) Priority in Bullet Punch, so it can pick of weakened pokemon or do enough to put it in KO range for the rest of your team. It's a matter of preference I guess. Escavalier hits harder and is a tiny bit bulkier, while Scizor has more utility.

Honestly, I don't think that basing Basculin around Double Edge is worth it considering the fact that Double-Edge is 120 Base and Waterfall is 80 Base + STAB (so the same, 120), and Water has around the same neutral coverage as normal type. I would say Adaptability is the way to go (provided you can find one), as Waterfall is now 160 Base Power (Adaptability changes the STAB modifier from 1.5x to 2x). Recoil doesn't really matter since Basculin's defenses are pretty terrible anyways, but I could see how Rock Head could be potentially useful.

Just my two cents.

And the Red 3DS looks awesome wtf.

Cool, thanks for all of the information.  Basculin was a bitch the first time I encountered it. The thing wouldn't go down, and my only useful pokemon had shit for Defense and Special Defense. >:|

So I'm still rather far away from all of the good bugs and electrics, but I have a guy sending me a Pichu egg so I'm psyched!

So, lately I've gotten addicted to TF2 since I arrived really late to the party.

If you ever see a spray with an arctic fox on it, you might find me there stabbing you in the back. Or more likely just to see my body parts around your feet while you look at it.

TF2 - I've been playing on the Trading Servers, and I'm surprised by how much fun they are. They're generally pretty empty or at least not very active because half the people are actually trading. They pretty much amount to a genuine TDM. I'll keep an eye out for that spray, Zylos.  ;)

I'm feeling the urge to do a New Game + on Resident Evil 4 Wii, too.

Total War: Shogun 2
The detail in this game is unheard of.

>Sending 70 of my Yari (Spear) Samurai in for a final charge against 120 archers
>My samurai break cover out of a nearby forest with 10 meters between them and the archers
>Within 3 meters the archers finally realize their impending doom and start to draw their katanas
>Only one or two actually get their swords out but it's too late.
>My Samurai charge through 3 or 4 lines of them, ripping them to shreds.
>The back two rows of archers lose morale and turn around to run away
>NOPE, the Yari Calvary I sent around back finally make it and sandwich them into the infantry spears
>Watch as my men individually fight and kill each archer, even stabbing survivors laying on the ground.
>Zoom out and see 10 other scenarios just like this happening as the battle wraps up.

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin - Snagged a used copy for $10. So far I'm loving it but not as much as the Sorrows. Gotta find Ecclesia and Dawn of Sorrow now...

XENOBLADE :rfuckyeah:
It's living up to the hype and then some. I've played about 15 minutes but I'm loving it.

Super Puzzle Fighter II X - Best multi-player puzzle game ever.
Got lucky and found a Version 1 Dreamcast for $19.99. So happy to finally have one again (after my brother gave his to his hipster friend).

Black Version - Beat Elite Four once and just grinding/exploring my way up to a super-duper team and then gonna try some online battles. I've played Tetris and Dr. Mario online, so I'm fully expecting to be utterly raped by a Japanese person.

Sword and Cozzie if you see this what's a good Dragon-type counter? My noteworthy team: I'm currently trying to breed a Lavitar with Dragon Dance, and I've got a newly-caught 58 Murkrow, 44 Gyarados, 58 Escavalier (which is awesome), 55 Slowpoke (for Trick Room?), and I'm carrying a 53 Reshirim for general backup and fly and a 50 Poliwhirl for Surf, Waterfall, and Dive. My Tyranitar is 60 I think but I'm probably gonna skip town on him when I get the Dragon Dance Lavitar. Is Slowbro a worthy psychic addition or are their better Psychics? Is Gengar viable these days or is his sub-Poison a nuisance?

Also I'm willing to shell out a few Steamgifts invites if anyone wants one. The only restriction is that you must have at least $50 worth of games on your account (list price, not bought price).
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Dwarra? on October 26, 2011, 06:53:24 AM
Dragon-Type counters in black only would limit you to Cryogonal or Beartic. You could also do Kyurem but you'd take quite a bit of damage too.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: SirJackRex on October 26, 2011, 03:23:36 PM
I have a Beartic but it ended up being ineffective because every dragon I fight seems to have Flamethrower or Fireblast. It's bullshit.

Would Lapras be a good one? Or maybe Gyarados with Ice Fang could be good. It wouldn't receive STAB but his attack is high enough to still pack a punch.

I'm also playing sml3d, and it is really easy. I'm at the last area, (its like world 8 part 2) in the first half of the game, and I've only missed a coin or two. I'm really happy with it, though, because of the sheer variety of levels. There aren't two levels that have been similar yet, other than the airships. My favorite level so far was the small-scale open world desert level, but I liked it for the change of pace. My other favorites were the aquarium and the one made of sprites, where you get the propellor boxes for the first time.

Going through the Resident Evil series all over again, starting with the classic "You were almost a Jill sandwich" one and working my way up as they were published. Hopefully this computer will be able to handle a decent Gamecube/Wii emulator for the few Nintendo exclusive titles. I'd be a lot happier though if I was actually able to finish the series and play RE5, but my computer can't handle the PC version and I lack a PS3/Xbox for the console versions.  ;9

I'm on vacation, and away from Skyrim, so I just blew through Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (great game, btw), and started Spirit Tracks. I've also been playing Parasite Eve again, since it was $5 on the Playstation Store.

I'm picking up a pre-owned PSP 3000 today ($100!) and I can't wait to transfer all my PSOne games over to it ... and then hack and homebrew the crap out of it. My DSi plays GBA games, but SNES games look weird. I hear SNES works better on PSP, so I can't wait for that, and all the PSP titles I missed out on. There's been too few JRPGs in my life as of late.

Civilizations V, with NIGHTS mod. Pretty good mod, really shakes up the game. I found it rough initially, and I'm only just starting to balance my civ out, 184 turns in.
Picross DS
Phantasy Star Zero
Nano Assault
, and let me tell you what, I wished I picked it up sooner, and I implore every 3DS owner to pick it up if you shumps, too. (I admit I have a soft spot in my heart for Shin'en.) I do not like the dynamic difficulty, but the game tends to beat me more often than not (especially those on-rails levels), and the Arcade mode makes up for it too. It's only $20...you could do a lot worse than support these guys.

Skyrim & Soul Calibur V. Story in SC5 was alright, was a bit disappointed when some characters didn't show up or some stuff went unanswered. Character customization is really cool, in a sense that you can layer the clothes better and change patterns. Height and specific body sizes now available (ex: can change upper arms, etc) as well as a huge amount of face paint/scars/makeup... even old people marks! More voices & faces available. Stupid thing is, they used mostly the same hair & clothes as SC4. Added a bit. Took away some. Makes me :mad: . But overall, I still like the customization. I just feel like Project Soul is getting so lazy, opposed to that in-depth individual character story thing in SC3.

I'm disappointed they didn't add more stuff in for CAS. Some of the characters they dropped deserved to be dropped, like Kilik for instance (well, they didn't drop him but they might as well have). Seong-mina was a great character who just got nerfed with every sequel, but with combining her and Kilik into Xiba they resolved the issue nicely. If you didn't live so far away we could deck out a match or two sometime.

About Project Soul getting lazy... word is they only had one year to make this game. Toss the blame at executive meddling, I say.

It seems like they just plain didn't care about the stock characters in SCV, and they were wholly shooting for player-created characters. Really, the premade characters just provide the weapons and fighting styles, while its up to the player to create unique characters and make things interesting. In a weird way, it reminds me of Neverwinter Nights: You have these awesome tools, (character creation and the actual fighting engine,) and the premade characters are like NWN's story mode. They're just there to give examples.

They didn't remove Kilik, they replaced him with Xiba. Who is now my main.
And Lizard Man got replaced with Aeon, and they made Astaroth even more cheap.
Misturugi is even better <3, Cervantes is still annoying as fuck, Ezio is pretty awful but you can do tons of damage if you get lucky, Nightmare is just ridiculous, Siegfried sucks now, and they added a bunch of new gimmicky characters who are boring.

All of the lizardman shit is really confusing, I know that the Lizardman in Soul Calibur 2 isn't Aeon. But I did think Aeon was brand new to 5 since I didn't recollect him having wings in the earlier games.

Oooo I totally forgot about this thread... What you said about them having only a year to make the game makes much more sense. I'm going to have to take that into more consideration. I can't say I hate the game at all, with the massive time I've already spent playing it. I'm a little heart-broken with what they did to Sophitia (not going to spoil it for those who haven't played the game). Main hero gets a lot of hatred, but I think he's okay sometimes maybe? Pyhrra is cute, but she kinda annoys me sometimes. I kind of like her. Favorite is still Siegfried. I like Raphael a bunch, and was disappointed with him story. Well... LACK of story. A lot of people don't like him but I think his attitude is kind of amusing. Viola (oooh guess who that is? lmao) also lacked the grand "aha!" moment I hoped for with her discovering her true identity.

Overall, story was alright for me, given it's time period. That knowledge brings my compassion for the game up significantly. I will say that I am still depressed over the loss of so many characters. I really like a lot of battle styles. D: (Rather then 3 or so forms of the Sophitia style). And I miss Taki's hair on my customization list :mad:. That ponytail is sexy. Cassandra's hair was hawt, too. And pretty much the only fit for that awesome headband that likes to morph with everything else on the customization list. :mad:. I want Zasalamel, too. That sickle was pro.

Already level 48*. Dr.Mc has been doing nothing but play the game since we got it to level and get more customization gear. She has TOO much free time lol. Anyways, thank you for saying the thing about the time span. I feel a lot less disappointed now. I'd be a little more undisappointed if half the characters weren't creepy bug-eyed teenagers... ;9

@Sword - yeah, I've got every character but Dampierre. I don't think I can get him yet? Still haven't tested Algol. Oooh, and I got an Ivy bobble-head from pre-ordering the game. Yay? :V

Just starting to chip away at AC:R meself. Very nice so far. Might go pick up SoulCalibur V soon, I haven't played a SC title since II.

EDIT: Got SC V. My daughters and I played it a bit, and so far it's pretty good. I like being able to play Ezio Auditore, even if he is kind of a "gimmie" character. Now to delve the story a bit!

EDIT part deux: The story was disappointing. I'm glad there are other modes.

Been playing the original Silent Hill on my PSP since I never got to try the series before, though apparently it's the European version with the Grey Child enemies replaced with Mumblers due to some censorship laws about killing children in games. It's creepy as hell when you play it in the dark in the middle of the night when you can't sleep. ._.

F-Zero GX is only like the bestest racing game ever man. (It is hard. ._.)


Lazy how? And are the load times as bad as the PS2 version?

Never played it but I hear they're not. They're about 1-3 seconds. The camera rotation is still ridiculously slow, though!

The menus screens are terribly scaled (sounds minor but it's pretty bad, and very ugly), the 3D is almost unacceptably subtle, the bottom screen is hardly used well, framerate is highly inconsistent (in battles it's been fine though), quite a bit of aliasing even without 3D

It's not a bad package, nor is it broken, it just seems so carelessly produced.

Just finished Resident Evil 4... holy crap it was awful! For the record I've tried finishing it since it came out but finally on the Wii I forced myself to finish it and boy it was not worth it. That game would be better were it 50% shorter. Shame Revelations wasn't the promised "classical Resident Evil" it promised to be. At least the co-op in RE5 made that a great game to play with chewey-boy and if RE6 has anything like that I'll buy it, but if you're going to make more RE games you had better not leave out co-op or else they'll just turn into kusoge within a decade or so.

Phew!

I played the demo. It's funny, quirky, and the aesthetics are really fantastic and well balanced. The gameplay is unique, it's essentially a set of exploration puzzles. You (a tiiiny russian doll) jump into other "people" and get to use their abilities (cough, listen with ear trumpet, blow whistle, fart, grumble) and you have to also pay attention to the size of the person you wanna use, so you can't just hop in a large doll, gotta get in a small, then meduim doll first, making it a little more difficult.

It was fun, humorous and quirky, but I dunno how it would hold up in the long term.

Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines - Aww yeah, this game is good. I liked the older crpg in VTM too, but this is leagues better. You should be ashamed of yourself if you haven't played this.
Half-Life 2 Deahtmatch - I didn't actually like this at first but I started playing it again and I'm hooked. There are way too many one-hit kill weapons in this game, though.

Dark Souls, I blame Dr. Sword. I have not played that one through yet and am trying to do so without use of the wiki or stategy guide, and am finding it rediculously difficult especially with a stealth build.

Although as my gear gets better, it's getting easier... Still, PvP is just stupid. I get mauled by groups of players in gear I haven't even seen in-game yet. It's frustrating.

We started playing Lord of the Rings Online a while back, but haven't really kept up with it. It was really well-designed for a free-to-play MMO, and we really enjoyed the game for the time we played it. Certainly be willing to start back up on it again if we had anyone to play it with (considering the main reason we left is because we didn't know anybody).

Lately, though, our MMO obsession has been the SWG Pre-CU emulator. We've been playing on Liberator for quite a while now. :)

Oh did they get an emulator set up for SWG?  I never played the game and always wanted to try it but wasn't too interested because the graphics looked sub-par compared to WoW which I was totally addicted to for years lol. 

I actually love the Lord of the Rings books and so playing the game was awesome.  I was a part of the beta for it's f2p system when they were preparing to make the transfer to f2p.  It had me hooked.  I don't have much in the way of purchased content but I did buy the gold cap removal thanks to the points I recieved as thanks for my participation in the beta. 

Right now I've got a couple characters but I'm considering deleting them and starting over as I've lost track of everything that I was doing and wouldn't mind doing some of those easy quests for turbine points anyway lol.

There's an emulator for SWG before the Combat Upgrade was pushed out, which completely redefined the way the game was played (and made it much worse in the opinion of the majority of players at the time). It's extremely buggy and a number of professions don't work correctly, but it's fun to play regardless. You can find out more about the emulator at the SWGEmu Forums (http://site.swgemu.com/forums/index.php). For the most part, the setup is pretty easy. The Liberator server holds the stable code for players to actually play the game with, while the Test Center holds all of the new code that's being released, so it's a very different game there, and really made more for beta-testing and bug hunting. :)

It's ludicrously nostalgic to go back and play the game, though. SWG used to be an obsession of ours until they pushed out the Combat Upgrade, which just made everything feel too dumbed-down and WoW-ish at the time. Then they released the New Game Enhancements, which just made it all that much worse, and we left. :(

(The graphics are still sub-par, by the way, but the game itself is too much fun for us to care about that. :P)

It's extremely buggy and a number of professions don't work correctly, but it's fun to play regardless. You can find out more about the emulator at the SWGEmu Forums (http://site.swgemu.com/forums/index.php). For the most part, the setup is pretty easy. The Liberator server holds the stable code for players to actually play the game with, while the Test Center holds all of the new code that's being released, so it's a very different game there, and really made more for beta-testing and bug hunting. :)

It's ludicrously nostalgic to go back and play the game, though. SWG used to be an obsession of ours until they pushed out the Combat Upgrade, which just made everything feel too dumbed-down and WoW-ish at the time. Then they released the New Game Enhancements, which just made it all that much worse, and we left. :(

(The graphics are still sub-par, by the way, but the game itself is too much fun for us to care about that. :P)

I might give it a shot.  I actually enjoyed WoW's combat a lot and tend to try to stick to things similar but I'm willing to give anything a shot lol

Skanky just bought Disgaea 4 and had it sent to me. I've tried a fair few NIS games now and the writing never really clicks with me, so at about chapter 4 I just started skipping the story and started grinding. Then I reached a grinding spot and the game stopped being fun.

Oh well, Skanky will like it at least.

I'm so upset...
I'm not playing anything right now. My TV is broken and the sound to my Xbox 360 is not working... I need to get a cable for the only other input in my TV. Also, has anyone heard about how the release of Ico was canceled? I was looking forward to that.  ;9
yeah previously my tv is also broken due to the fact the cause of it is by my old play station 1 game console..
it only broke newer tv than old tv. but now my old play station is still working for over 8 years and sometime i play it.(have no plans to sell it on e-bay) :(

No.

Guild Wars 2 Beta - SO GOOD. Despite the awful lag from time to time and terrible frame rate (<5) when there's more than 15 players on screen, it's SO GOOD. They patched it earlier today and it made it run buttery smooth for the most part, but it's a beta so I can't really complain. I like my human Guardian, and he fucking puts out with a Greatsword, but I may make a Norn guardian because i actually prefer their appearance now

In addition to everything posted previously, L4D2.

Torchlight 2 Beta. So fucking good. Must ARPG fun I've had since D2, and honestly I think it may be more fun, but maybe not better overall. Still plenty of things they'd need to tweak but man is it just pure, satisfying fun. The worst class is my favorite class, if that says something, though.

And I decided to replay D2 as a Paladin, because I started one a long time ago as a break from Necromancer, but dropped it at Act IV because I didn't like it. I like it now.

I think that's it. I'll probably play some Wii games soon, while I wait for Sin & Punishment 2 to arrive.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: chewey on May 24, 2012, 07:26:56 AM
Yep, I've been playing a fair bit of the beta too. I ended up liking Outlander the most with Berserker in second. I levelled both of those classes to 21 and lost interest in my Embermage and Engineer at around level 14.

I'd say the skill tree needs to be reworked a bit before launch, which is apparently Runic's plan anyway.

Shotguns/cannons are the best.

WELL.

I just completed a personal challenge: Beat Mega Man X without taking a single hit and without using anything but the X-Buster on the bosses. I used SSNES, and I'll admit I made a LOT of use on the rewind feature when I fucked up, but I don't see the point in punishing myself by memorizing stage layouts.

That, and you just try to dodge every. Single. Fucking. Missile. In a Launch Octopus fight. Even with the rewind button.

Torchlight 2 beta!!!

Contrary to most others I actually love the Engineer and Embermage. And allocating stats. It turns me on. Can't wait for them to release the full game.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: chewey on May 24, 2012, 07:51:26 AM
Engineer is probably the most popular class though. It seems likely barely anybody plays Outlander.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: SirJackRex on May 24, 2012, 08:12:48 AM
Engineer felt really unsatisfying. It's probably the easiest class to play, so . Embermage was fun but didn't really hook me. The skills felt kinda meh. Only got to level 9 though. I think I'm going to try a hardcore run of Embermage tomorrow before the beta ends. It'll probably be very easy.

I like allocating stats, too. I also like tht they patched in some slight skill canceling and skill queuing. Makes Berzerker much easier to dodge with, though he's still pretty much shit. His DPS does not make up for his defense.

I remember that phase. Okay, what you need to do is just take deep breathes and step away from the console. Okay now what I need you to do is step outside. (I know it's been a while since you have done this) The bright thing that is hurting your eyes? That is the Sun and remember, don't stare directly into it. Okay, now take a few more deeps breathes.

Zenonia on my 3DS
Painkiller

Zenonia was sooo slow to start. Five minutes of intros, and 10 minutes of 30 seconds of walking from one NPC to another for another two minutes of dialogue what the fuck. There are a few things I dislike, but it's actually really good. I can see myself putting a lot of time into it.

Painkiller is very good and somewhat bad. It's very fun, not amazing; the level design is boring and the enemies are tame. I like the debuffs some of them apply, though. Pretty neat stuff. The weapons feel *right*, too. But the physics are really weird at first. Overall it's fun and I'm glad I got it. Basically a lot like Serious Sam, with better design, for the most part.

Majoras Mask and the new Batman DLC

It's probably just me remembering things wrong, but I don't recall a single N64 game with free camera controls/a good camera. MM is really enjoyable so far and I like the stuff it does, but it takes some getting used to the awkward camera; especially since the camera is super zoomed in on your butt in your deku scrub form and you can barely see anything. Controls nicely on a CC though!

No.  I would play it over again because my saves are for ps3 and since I don't have a ps3 anymore, I have to start all over on my pc versions if I really want my old character back.

Also because I enjoy the games and it's worth it to me.  Watching them on youtube just isn't the same as playing a game and seeing it for myself in fullscreen after I just went through the game on the hardest difficulty.

Mostly Timesplitters Future Perfect, and dudes, it's probably the best console fps. You know you've come across a brilliant game when it lets you decapitate zombies with felled zombies' heads.

Topping TS2 is quite the feat, so holy shit, Free Radical, my hat's off to you. (The campaigns are mostly on par; I think TS2 has an overall solider campaign but TS3 is more imaginative.)

I don't think you linked the video you meant to, since that's just still images. 

I don't think your actions create the music, though. It seems more like a rhythm game where you're supposed to do things with the touchscreen in time with the music, like activating those sleeping yellow things or breaking some rocks. I guess that's sort of creating the music, but only kinda.

Also, I finally beat Xenogears. Seriously, absolutely nothing even comes remotely close to having such a ridiculously complex and amazing story. Okay, maybe Mother 3, but the revelations in Xenogears are just jaw-dropping.

Xenoblade Chronicles is seriously good, guys. Music is great, voice acting is phenomenal (and British!), the story is interesting and highly emotional WITHOUT BEING ALL JRPG-GAY-EMOTIONAL. Also, it's unexpectedly mature and dark. I'm 6 hours in, and they just killed off a character I thought was going to be a long-time party member. Seriously, I didn't see it coming, not even until the very last moment. I kept thinking "they'll save this person in time, they always do." And then BAM. Dead. But it was AWESOME.

The only thing you have to get past is the graphics, which really aren't that bad (think Final Fantasy XII), and the fact that party members are a little too chatty in battle.

But if that's enough to turn you away, then you suck, and who cares about your opinions.


And did I mention the battle system? It's a goddamn masterpiece. No random encounters, a brilliant combination of turn-based combat and tactical RPG combat (back attacks deal more damage, buffing/debuffing, etc).

Play this game.

Post by: Moss. on September 10, 2012, 04:11:37 AM
Last Story is absolutely next on my list, I've heard amazing things about it as well.





Bayard, Xenoblade is directed by Tetsuya Takahashi, and developed by his studio, Monolith Soft.
Tetsuya Takahashi also directed Xenogears, and Xenosaga. He's the man behind the entire storyline, all the characters, and all that happens in Xenogears, Xenosaga, and Xenoblade. He's the author, so to speak, but he also does a lot more. He's very talented. (Fun fact, he also did the graphic design for Final Fantasy V and VI, and Chrono Trigger.) And since I just beat Xenogeras, and how I'm playing Xenoblade, I'm in love with the guy.

That doesn't answer your question, huh?

Xenoblade is similar to both Xenogears and Xenosaga in that there's a lot of mystery, and a lot you don't know about the world you're in. There's a lot of forshadowing, hinting that tremendous and mind-bending things are going to happen (like in Xenogears and Xenosaga). You can tell it all came from the same director/studio simply because it's his style, not because of reused ideas. The storytelling is more like Xenosaga, I suppose, but only because now we have voice acting and better animation technology than Xenogears had to work with. I'm sure if Xenogears was remade, it would be more like Xenosaga, and Xenoblade. Oh, and by the way, the entire voice acting cast in British, and they're goddamn phenomenal. Very believable, especially when they emotional.

The art style is a bit more mature, though. Not as plasticky and HUGE EYES as Xenosaga I was. It IS a bit limited by the Wii hardware, though, but I honestly don't mind it's still very pretty to me.

The gameplay is a very interesting mix of common western AND eastern RPG ideas.
Battle System:
Turn based. Characters auto-attack at certain intervals. You control only one character at a time, but can switch outside of battle.
Characters have unique skills that can be used at any time, but have cool-down times until they can be used again.
Certain attacks cause "break," which stagger enemies for a few seconds. Enemies that have "break" status can be attacked with a "topple" attack, which knocks enemies over for a longer period of time. A final attack causes "daze," which renders an enemy unable to move/attack, but can only be effective if they're already toppled. No character has all three of these attacks, so you must coordinate.
The character you control can move around freely in battle. Certain skills must be used from certain angles to do more damage (i.e. side attacks, and back attacks).
Certain characters are made to draw aggro from enemies, allowing teammates to get behind and back attack.
The ally AI is pretty solid, I haven't had any real complaints.

No random encounters. Some enemies are docile, some will come attack YOU.



There are fetch quests, but none require you to actually return to the quest-giver, which saves you a lot of time. Also, they're 100% optional.
There is fast travel. Even within one map. Like, within one town. Fast travel to the commercial district, or to the military district. To save you time.
NPC's (and some enemies) have schedules based on what time it is. You can change what time it is whenever you want. To save you time.
NPC's (and your allies) have affinities. You help them, they help you. I've yet to see what kind of bonuses this will bring.
You can (choose) to cheer on your allies in battle, which raises their affinity.
Raising affinities with your allies allows for "heart to heart" moments, which tells more about the relationship between characters, and it just great to see.
There's tons of equipment/armor, and it all actually changes the appearance of your character. So if you get 1 "huge ass metal helmet" and equip it on your guy, he actually runs around with a huge metal helmet on his head (and in all the cutscenes!).


A little ranty, yeah? I'm loving this game, though.

It's like a JRPG with western MMO features, and it's really good. I should continue it, but my Wii's disc drive has been acting up lately. I think I have it installed to a HDD...thank god for homebrew, really.

Post by: chewey on September 10, 2012, 06:40:26 AM
I ended up passing the controller to Rasse about 10 hours into the game and didn't end up playing it again. He played through so much that I didn't feel like getting back into it and learning all the new characters, so I just watched the rest of the game. It's pretty good. It's pretty similar to FF12, which I had finished for the first time right before Xenoblade came out in EU/Australia. The sidequests aren't so hot, I thought, since there are about a million of them.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Moss. on September 11, 2012, 12:23:59 AM
Yeah, the sidequests are really just "get X amount of this item" or "kill X amount of this monster" or "kill this super-powered version of this common monster," so they are pretty boring. BUT. If you're smart, you'll accept a ton of them before you move on with the story. Because most of them involve simply killing monsters that are on the way to the next area, which you're going to have to do anyway in order to move on with the story. It's especially nice since you never actually have to run back to the sidequest-giver when you complete it. So in other words, you get more cash and items, and it's not even out of your way.

Not that it would matter if it was out of your way, with fast travel.

Been playin id's Rage on xbox. I remember this game getting a lot of flack when it came out. I think it was like hypebullshit because I think it's pretty good and I never really paid attention to the hype in the firstplace.

why so much rage about rage is my question.

I heard it was short but it's still longer than say, call of shooty or most other shooters in the last 3 years. maybe people were just rushing through it or something
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: tSwitch on September 18, 2012, 03:29:56 PM
It's sorta short, and people were expecting it to be like fallout or borderlands, but since it's more shooter than RPG, they were disappoint.  It doesn't necessarily do anything 'badly' imo.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: SirJackRex on September 18, 2012, 11:10:44 PM
I think I played it for over 15 hours. The last level was disappointing (it was definitelycut short) but the shooting was my probably favorite of any FPS this generation. enemies are really satisfying to kill and the weapon feedback is so good.

yeah basically don't do yourself a disservice and expect it to be like borderlands or fallout because it's not. it has some faltering hints of being an rpg but it's so obviously a pure shooter.

I recently rediscovered this old PS game called Darkstone. I honestly don't know why I enjoy it so much, it's a blatant Diablo clone only with crappier graphics and some French-Canadian chick that they suckered into singing an in-game song because she didn't realize the english lyrics were so corny.

The controls are clunky and counter-intuitive and the quests are repetetive and formulaic. It has little replay value unless you want to  do all the menial quests and it's a pain in the ass to figure out what equipment is really good for you, especially after the first playthrough....

...and I love it.

Dead Space - as in right now. It's okay...It's more like RE4 than System Shock 2, and no where near as good as RE4. It's really not that scary, but it does make me feel uneasy. I think a better name for it would be waiting to shoot at things that pop out of vents. The necromorphs aren't all that interesting so far and because of the whole dismemberment gimmick the combat feels very stale. Basically I've encountered slow enemies that crawl, faster enemies that crawl, and moderate enemies that walk upright. Meh. I'll keep playing it because I want to play something scary throughout October.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit - man this game is a blast! the time trials are great, the regular races are great, the destruction cop stuff is so much fun. One of my favorite racing games now.

Shift 2 Unleashed - Pretty bad so far. The physics feel off, and driving really isn't satisfying.

Burnout Paradise - it's fun but I don't feel hooked.

The Sims 2 & 3 - fun as ever. Actually started playing their lives and it is fun.

F-Zero GX - ;.; so good

I guess it looks like I've been playing a lot lately but only a few minutes here and there.

I didn't think my new computer would be any good for gaming until I finally broke down and bought a discrete graphics card, but it turns out Intel HD 4000 graphics can handle Borderlands really well. So now I'm playing that.

This isn't a good thing. Because I'm also playing Xenoblade, Persona 3 FES, and Chrono Trigger (floating continent music hits me right in the feels every time, in an ego-crushing "I will never write anything that good" and also nostalgia-crushing "I will never feel that way about a game ever again" kind of way).

All very long games. Undoubtedly, I will have to start one of more of them over again, because I'll beat one, and then forget everything that happened so far in the other. :\

As somebody who barely plays the AC games and only knows a little about them, the Desmond sections in 3 look like shit. And not just the gameplay, graphically they look worse than the main game for some reason. Like, crappy character models/animations and no shadows. They must put some B teams on those parts of the game or something.

The rest of the game looks fine, but I've only seen a bit. Maybe a little janky in terms of the framerate. Ubi needs to start putting out games on the PC the same day as consoles already. Also new consoles would be nice, I guess.

Oddly enough I think the Desmond parts look better than the normal game, the one driving in the van scene does look absolutely awful though.

Is it fun?
They did so many things right this time. They revamped the combat, the colonial characters are actually really awesome, the pacing is great, the naval warfare/missions are fucking rad (I'd buy a standalone game based off the naval combat), the cities/landscape look amazing (especially the Iroquois village), and they did wonders with the free running system. My only gripes are that they let you play as Connor's dad for so long and then switch you over because the former is the best character in the game and Connor is bland and boring. Also the fact that when you finally get the assassin's robes you're so used to looking like a normal person that they look even more out of place, thank god he only wears the hood in the main cities. I'm about 8 hours in and I still don't even feel like I've gotten into the main storyline which is pretty damn cool considering how games as of late have been. Multiplayer is pretty much the same as the last two except they have a game mode with no stupid shit game breaking abilities and it's fantastically well done (yet still a little boring.)

From what I remember hearing somewhere about the story, the robes represent the assassin's disguise and are kind of a placeholder that the Animus uses to represent the disguise they were wearing. Or something like that. On another note, I still need to finish up Brotherhood and play Revelation and then get AC3 :(

Yes and No... The Yes part is that the original and Slendermod doesn't end with a congrats and slenderman captures you anyway and in the original, you unlock daytime mode, 20$ Mode etc. And they don't show you the story really: It's more like a test of survival horror on how long can you avoid this thing and survive collecting all 8 pages until the end...

The No Part is that: In slenderman's shadow you have to escape to the place where you started before the slenderman captures you once you collected all 8 pages. Plus the whole point of the game is avoid a stalker that seeks to capture you and kill you, And not staring at it for too long otherwise it's over so you have to keep your "sanity" up and try not to get captured while collecting pages.

I've seen that g9x paired with some MW3 keyboard for $65 or so a few times and I've almost bought it every time I've seen it.

I'm hoping the Wii U Pro Controller ends up being made compatible with PC, since it just looks like a better Classic Controller Pro.

CC/P has a better d-pad and better shoulder buttons. 360 pad has better analogue sticks and triggers. Also the CC/P can be used to speedrun N64 games because of its octagonal guide rings, which is the most important thing of all.

The best controller you can grab for your PC is obviously the Neo Geo controller SNK put out a couple years, though. Too bad they only made like 10 of 'em so they cost a fortune.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Malson on November 24, 2012, 09:23:29 PM
I love the hell out of the 360 gamepad but there's no doubt Dualshock is the superior controller in almost all instances.

And I don't see the point of that anyway. The only games you'd really need that kind of D-pad for are fighting games, and that's one of the few genres that makes more sense controlled with a keyboard.

And platformers I guess, but I haven't had any trouble with Super Meat Boy on the 360 pad.

Well, any MORE trouble, I should say. It's Super Meat Boy after all.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: SirJackRex on November 24, 2012, 11:10:48 PM
I'm wholly with Chewey here. CCPro ~ 360 > PS3. I went with the CC adapter because playing Dark Souls with a 360 pad is very annoying (similar with The Witcher 2 but not nearly as bad). It's got the best digital buttons of this gen. The 360 is a great controller all around, but mostly when d-pad doesn't require precision or when games require analog triggers. CCPro would be the perfect controller if it offered all of the same buttons as the 360 and PS3. I don't like stick buttons and I only like analog triggers when they function variably in-game, but I can't deny that games nowadays are made to the PS3 and 360 controls. It also fits like a glove with either two fingers on the shoulder buttons or one.

Malson, you can argue that but it doesn't excuse a bad d-pad. Nope, not one bit. Anytime d-pad precision is required the 360 controller immediately becomes inferior. I couldn't use the 360 pad for SMB and I laughed at the loading screen depicting a 360 controller. (I had zero problems with a keyboard.) The 360 is a great controller for anything that uses analog triggers and doesn't use the d-pad much. The only other thing I hold against the 360 pad is its sticks feel very loose. I also play lots of platformers so a good d-pad is all around appreciated.

Chewey, yeah I saw that combo for the same price. I paid $60 for my apple wired keyboard and I like it but I regret it a little. I would've liked an exact replacement, an older microsoft ergonomics keyboard, but the ones I saw all had the split keys and I didn't want that for gaming. It'll wear out before I replace it, but I'm thinking of something like a sidewinder or a mechanical. But my adapter will be here today and my mouse by Tuesday at the latest, so I'm very excited.

Later tonight I'll be playing The Witcher 2 and Dark Souls to get my new controls ironed out. Maybe I'll transfer over some of my ripped wii games to my pc to play some beautiful upscaled dolphin.

I should have specified that I play SMB with the analog stick, and not the D-pad, because it allows me more precise maneuvering. Being that the D-pad is just a POV switch made to look like one, it's not even accurate to call it one at all. And it's far and away the largest flaw on the 360 controller. So trust me, we're on the same page.

I love the hell out of the 360 gamepad but there's no doubt Dualshock is the superior controller in almost all instances.

And I don't see the point of that anyway. The only games you'd really need that kind of D-pad for are fighting games, and that's one of the few genres that makes more sense controlled with a keyboard.

Fighting games really need analog sticks.

Playing a fighting game with a keyboard feels more like you're mashing buttons at the arcade. If you can manage to hook a joystick next to your keyboard, then you're golden.

And platformers I guess, but I haven't had any trouble with Super Meat Boy on the 360 pad.

Well, any MORE trouble, I should say. It's Super Meat Boy after all.
There isn't anything the PS3 controller is best at, so there's no way it's superior in almost all instances. A 360 controller is best for some things, like first person shooters or anything that uses triggers (driving games, mostly) and the CC/P is best for platformers and anything that requires more precise input. It's still not great for fighting games, but it's the best of the three. And playing fighters on a keyboard is pretty shitty. Fine maybe for something like Mortal Kombat or Waku Waku 7, but not for anything complicated really.

As for everything else, it's just down to the feel of the controller. Since the DS3 is tiny, has poopy stick placement and a d-pad that's pretty bad for extended use, there's just never a time I wish I was using it instead of something else. Arguing about which controller has the best face buttons (the answer is the CC/P) seems pretty pointless since there's not much of a difference anyway.

Far Cry 1 was quite fun. I stopped playing toward the end, because the levels become confined to corridors a bit and shooting the kinda-bullet sponge enemies encountered specifically in those levels was boring. I mean, it's basically Crysis in a primitive form. It's not superb, but definitely worth the 15-odd hours I played.

Far Cry 2 is pretty different. I played so little of it because it ran sloppily on my last rig. I want to reinstall it sometime but there was a lot of stupid shit I didn't like in the few hours I played. Otherwise it's good.

I was gonna say Vaas and Buck are the highlights but I didn't wanna give anything away. I wasn't sure if Buck had shown up in any promo stuff since he doesn't show up until about halfway through the campaign.

The characters who aren't a part of the protag's group of friends are all well done or at least well acted. Some things are in poor taste but that's just the fault of the script more than anything. The protag and his friends though are all kinda plain and boring, unfortunately.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Moss. on December 06, 2012, 02:58:13 AM
If you mean the swearing, I think it plays a big part in why the voice acting is so good in this game. Well, to a point. It can go overboard, but something about characters actually saying FUCK so often in a game like Far Cry 3 makes it more believable. I mean, if you were in that situation, wouldn't you be swearing your ass off? Instead of in Far Cry 1, where they practically say things like "GOLLY GEE THATS JUST DARN AWFUL" and quite literally say things like "your ass is grass" and "I'll fix your little red wagon!"

It can go too far, though. It's a fine line to tread, but one that needs treading in a game like that.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: chewey on December 06, 2012, 03:03:57 AM
Nah, swearing don't bother me. There's a thing about one of the characters in the plot that I don't think was handled very well. There's also the fact that the natives are like, "Save us white man!!" which isn't a big deal but it's kinda weird. I wish the main character was just a native dude who was forced into doing bad shit  rather than some rich white dude.

Playing by yourself? When I played the game with Skanky, my brother and some stranger who joined us I was having the same problem. The game isn't much fun in co-op when the enemies become the worst fucking bullet sponges ever and you don't take much to kill. In single player I didn't have that problem much but I also didn't get very far into the game. Also the game is shitty in single player so it doesn't matter.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Moss. on December 23, 2012, 03:19:20 AM
I actually really enjoy the game. I played up to about level 20 with the assassin, as a sniper, and that's actually a lot of fun. The whole bullet sponge thing isn't as big of an issue when you have all those critical hit bonuses.

But just now I started over as a siren. It was MUCH easier at first than it was for the assassin (badass bonuses make a difference), and a lot of fun because I switched to the opposite play style (rush in, go nuts vs. wait and snipe) but all of a sudden this fire damage bullshit started.
Title: Re: What are you playing?

I forget how far I got. I think I was in the area after the desert with the little girl who I thought was super duper unfunny (like everything else in the game!!).

I really liked it until the bullet sponge stuff just became unbearable. Early on with three other people it was lots of fun playing a medic Siren. Another thing that frustrated me was how long it took to level up since I really wanted to try out more of Siren's powers.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Moss. on December 23, 2012, 03:29:51 AM
It's always interesting how our opinions are completely opposite on another. Tiny Tina wasn't the funniest part of the game, but to say the entire thing was "super duper unfunny?"

Also, it took me about 2 hours to get to level ~10 with my siren, so I don't know what's up with that, either. Took me a lot longer with my assassin, though, because I actually took the time to look around and explore.

I've been mixing through Far Cry 3 coop missions and general multiplayer (since after the campaign it's pretty useless to continue the game without restarting it.), Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Don't Starve, Star Wars: The Old Republic and I'm about to start up Natural Selection 2.

Darksiders is a drag. Everything feels like filler. The last dungeon is so fucking lazy.

Dark Souls - Got to sheath on my sorcerer and was so close to killing him. I had full health, but I didn't see the curse buildup. Uuggh. So I started a new character, a melee/faith for lightning stuff cause it looks so awesome. I'll probably go back to Sheath later tonight.

Apparently it's a hack and slash game and not a crpg. The writing is supposedly so awful (though I'mma level with you, DA:O was barely decent to begin with). One of the characters will get you in the sack no matter what dialog options you choose, regardless of gender. Your "biggie" choices are more or less meaningless (however this is pretty much on-par for bioware games this gen if you ask me). You're confined to one city and the "shit mountain" of monotonous and ugly outer hilly environments and practically one reused dungeon. It was rushed, poorly-written, and basically not Dragon Age. Some people say it would've been better-received under a different title.

But it's darker, sexier, and cooler than the first, according to the near-perfect PC Gamer review!

I feel like replaying DA:O or playing Awakening but the download and install size is pretty unappealing. Origin servers are surprisingly fast, though, so it could be okay.

Yah Awesomenauts is pretty rad so far. I has a pretty steep curve to it. My brother and I played a couple rounds a few nights back and did not do well at all. I played the free weekend a while back for a few hours straight and got pretty good, but that's all gone now hahah.

Really? Have you played a DOTA style game before? I got really into it because it was pretty easy to learn, unlike any other DOTA game I've played. And I thought the progression was pretty zippy too, maybe like 3 levels per round and a round taking... not long at all against bots. Back when I played, though, the healer dude was broken as all get-out. He's still good, from what I understand, but not quite as good.

If you're having trouble you might just be playing some of the trickier characters. I remember the cowboy and the frog being a bit tricky and the big robot and healer being pretty simple. The monkey with the jetpack was ass for ages and then incredibly overpowered for about a week and then back to ass, from what I remember. The stealth Lizard dude has always been not too difficult to play and overpowered once you learn him, I think (not sure if he's been fixed, they kept trying to change him with every update). I haven't played a lot of the new characters.

The monkey with the jetpack was ass for ages and then incredibly overpowered for about a week and then back to ass, from what I remember. The stealth Lizard dude has always been not too difficult to play and overpowered once you learn him, I think (not sure if he's been fixed, they kept trying to change him with every update). I haven't played a lot of the new characters.

Thank you for calling them DOTA games and not MOBAs.

Yah Awesomenauts is pretty rad so far. I has a pretty steep curve to it. My brother and I played a couple rounds a few nights back and did not do well at all. I played the free weekend a while back for a few hours straight and got pretty good, but that's all gone now hahah. The one thing I dislike is how long it seems to take to unlock characters, unless I'm doing something wrong.
Really? Have you played a DOTA style game before? I got really into it because it was pretty easy to learn, unlike any other DOTA game I've played. And I thought the progression was pretty zippy too, maybe like 3 levels per round and a round taking... not long at all against bots. Back when I played, though, the healer dude was broken as all get-out. He's still good, from what I understand, but not quite as good.

MOBA is a stupid term it bugs me and sounds dumb.

Resident Evil 5 - It started out shit but it became kind of good and now it's like 1:1 entertaining to stupid design. Can't wait for RE6 though.

Tomb Raider looks rad...but I'm definitely going to buy it at a steeper discount since I'm not too big a fan of the standard TPS shooting paradigm and want to hear more impressions of it.

Re: Chewey: I did play a little bit of DOTA and some LoL, a tiny bit of HoN, and a couple hours of DOTA2. They gameplay never really clicked with me, but I understand the objective and basic mechanics. I'm not sure why Awesomenauts is tough for me (though admittedly I haven't played it in a while) but I do dig it. Maybe it's because I don't really play it as a DOTA game, more as a brawler.

Based on a few reviews and videos, I'll probably succumb to getting a 3DS solely for Fire Emblem: Awakening.

Yeah, Fire Emblem: Awakening is definitely pretty awesome. I'm really enjoying it and the Support system is great. I'm only on chapter 16, but so far I'm really enjoying it.

Lunatic mode is totally ridiculous though. I can't even get past Chapter 3 with that character, even with overusing Frederick. I'm beginning to think I might have to just sacrifice some characters.

I'm only playing on hard and I'm around Chapter 9 or 10. I also like the idea of being able to add characters from past games into your group, but it's also kind of weird. I feel like I should be using the other characters instead. I'll probably start mixing it up on subsequent playthroughs though.

And yes, the support system in this one is the best so far. Especially after the abysmal one in Radiant Dawn. Small thing, but I also love that healers get ~25 EXP when they heal instead of ~10 like previous games. It was always such a pain to get them leveled up. This game is full of little improvements like that which really makes it end up standing out.

Because it was. :) I still have the original Myst, 7th Guest, and 11th Hour games that I run through DOSBox every once in a while. Haven't touched Myst lately, though... might have to revisit that surreal landscape. I also have copies of most of the early King's Quest games, come to think of it.

And... oddly enough, I've also had a rather random desire to play the old-school id FPS games, so I grabbed my (incredibly old) copies of The Ultimate Doom, Doom II, Final Doom, Quake, and Quake II and got all of them running on my (incredibly not-old) laptop. Already blew through the first three episodes of Ultimate Doom.

Ah, childhood memories.

I was playing Witcher 2, and actually loving it, despite how difficult it randomly becomes. Actually, I like that, too. It forces me out of my usual "exploit AI, use the one attack that usually works" routine and makes me actually plan ahead a bit. A hell of a lot more than most video game can make me say these days.

But then I (finally) got a 9-5 job. Now I go to work, come home, and then watch Bleach because I have a serious jones for that shit right now since I heard it finished, and I stopped watching a few years ago.

@arl: Well, to be technical, DOTA doesn't stand for anything. It was originally DotA on Warcraft 3 which was short for "Defense of the Ancients" referring to the fact that you - as a team - defend your "ancient" which was either a world tree or the frozen throne. Due to copyright or whatever, Valve couldn't actually use the name "DotA" so they went with "DOTA" which was obviously related, but it doesn't actually stand for "Defense of the Ancients."

It's an AoS genre which basically means there's NPC monsters spawn from both teams into three different lanes. You get EXP by being within a certain radius of a dying enemy (whether player-controlled or NPC), and you get gold for killing enemy players, helping kill enemy players, and getting the last hit on a NPC monster. You level up your skills, you buy items, you kill the enemy team, and you ultimately try to destroy their base. That's basically it.

Paper Mario Sticker Star is kind of fun, and the dialogue is great, but it got boring for me pretty fast when I realized there is no incentive to do battles, other than getting coins, but you get plenty of coins outside of battle anyway which renders it pointless. Apparently the developers had a lot of restrictions placed on them, which is unfortunate because it could have been a lot better than it is.

Yeah, there is little reason to fight soon after the start of the game. Also you don't really need a lot of coins since you can find a lot of free stickers in towns and in stages. I also noticed that the game doesn't explain a lot about bosses, but expects you to guess and carry around the huge thing stickers to defeat them.

Once you're used to how the AI / Mechanics work, the game is shockingly easy. After the pacifist run, I then completed it on the hardest difficulty. Easily the best game of 2011.  :yuyu:

Are these battles totally optional? Because if so, I actually find that kind of cool.

Unless the battles are the core of the gameplay, in which case it's the exact opposite.

That does seem to be the general consensus. I'll admit that I've never actually played the second game, partially due to some of the criticism.

That said, a friend of mine has vouched for it, saying that while it's not as good as Origins or Awakening, it's a solid game in its own right. I've also heard that the third game is supposed to read your saves from the first two, and I'm a sucker for that kind of thing. It really makes the series feel more connected.

The Witcher 2 and Resident Evil 6. Played a little Dark Souls with a new character and I'll probably play some L4D2 with a buddy later one. Spring Break has been gooood.

Playin' TW2 on Dark Mode and having a blast. Got the complete blasphemer's armor, but I gotta say I really loved just using the swords without the full set (they life drain while wielded unless the full set is equipped). Made it tense.

RE6 is great, as well. The movement options and contextual kills are slick. Sliding into a dude and smashing his head into a counter is rad as all hell. Love it.

Playing Skyrim, again...

I'm playing a different way than usual, though. I usually go the heavy armor melee attack type, or the sneaky archer type in the beginning ... and towards the end it's always jack-of-all-trades, but not this time. This time I used this "alternate start" mod that lets you choose your origin story, and one of the ones that was already there was Vigilant of Stendarr. So I'm using that build. I use a mace (I never used maces much before), no armor at all (huge difference for me, getting used to the alteration spells), investing in alchemy (again, never bothered before), using enchantments (okay, that I always did), and NOT using many destruction spells (found a magic mod that added some really interesting spells that do damage outside of the destruction school). I'm even taking the origin into consideration for the characters moral choices. You know, playing a "lawful good" type character. No daedric artifacts. Crimes are unforgivable. No stealing, no murdering. (I've played through the thieves guild and dark brotherhood enough times, I don't need to do them again). I don't even loot dead bodies that were friendly NPCs, because that wouldn't be a noble thing to do to a fellow force for good.

It's really fun. And really challenging, too, with all the tweaks/mods I put in that affect combat.

Also, I got all the new DLCs, so I'm trying them out, and playing the obvious choice for the Dawnguard DLC, unlike the last time I played it.

I agree with you, though. There are tons of older games I'd love to play, but I'm not sure if I could truly get in to some of them now. I'll probably give Arcanum a shot sometime.

Cool, good to know. I'm expecting some Amazon trade-in credits any day now. (Also, happy birthday! I've not been too active, so if there's a thread for it I apologize for not noticing before.)

Far Cry Blood Dragon and Tomb Raider on the top of my list, but I may instead get a boxed copy of Animal Crossing (though I'd really prefer to have that as a digital download, paying for it with credit is much nicer than paying for it from my checking).

Been waiting for this for a long time, I loved Metro 2033. Currently there is no fix for the low FOV which is pretty annoying :/ Otherwise, the game is amazing so far.

I've been spending my life on Blizzard's Chaos Project lately, pretty much what got me back into RMXP. But, now I've maxed levels and owned Hellvoid's ass, I feel like my life no longer has meaning.
So, naturally, I reloaded my old FFVIII save and penetrated Ultimecia again, then started a game on FFVII, never gave that game the time of day since it was way too popular, but it's going well so far.
Other than that, a friend and I like to kill shit on Left 4 Dead II. There's something awesome about being a large black guy with an AK-47.

Eh, my favourite game is TF2, which depending on when you check, is the most played game on steam. I think FF7 is the best final fantasy, probably followed by 9, then 5.

Been playing EVE Online for the past two days with my girlfriend. It's been pretty much the kind of MMO I've been looking for, and I'm having fun. If anybody wants to try a 21-day trial, I can give a referral code (and if you upgrade, I get this thing that I can sell and split the profits with you). But it's been really fun. I can't wait to get a good ship and PVP the hell out of people... Long way to go, though.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Roph on May 17, 2013, 02:01:45 PM
NAM plays EVE too, but it seems so complex (and a little pay-to-win) that I'm kinda put off by it :/
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Kokowam on May 17, 2013, 05:10:30 PM
It's not that complex if you take it slowly. The tutorials teach you a lot, little by little (actually good tutorial quests that make you do stuff to find out what they are instead of walls of text that are "tutorials" in MMORPGs lately), and the game allows you to learn little by little; you can just chill out and try to make some money (which is what I'm trying to do atm) and then go into PVP or you can just straight up try PVP. The best part of it is that it's so open that you're allowed to do whatever.

I don't feel like it's that pay-to-win, though. Sure, buying PLEX and then selling it for ISK gives you a huge boost, but you still have to make sure you have enough game-time to keep playing as well as the fact that all the good stuff require skill training. At the very least, the pay-to-win isn't as excessively bad as a lot of MMORPGs have made it.

And besides that, I'm just having fun playing with my girlfriend. I wish there were more people to hang out with and do stuff with, but it's an enjoyable experience. We've both been looking for a game that we could play for a long time with good end-game content, and the end-game for EVE just goes on. :)

(I sound like a fucking PR rep for EVE)

Okay, so I can give you a tip.

You want the Wind Laser in the last stage, and the Morning Star.

Wind Laser fires using the BOMB button, not the fire button. This is important.

When you start fighting the core, use the wind laser, exclusively. After a while, you'll get scanned. Once clones start to appear, they'll imitate you. STOP FIRING IMMEDIATELY or you will GET DEAD. Switch to the Morning Star.

Morning Star fires with the regular laser button.

The boss can't imitate it because it didn't scan it. The clones are limited to a shitty pea shooter, and as long as you don't push the bomb button they don't have that either. Your morning star lets you hang out close to the core's weakspot and damage it repeatedly without being in the direct line of fire. It also acts as a shield against the clones, destroying any that get close.

HELL YEAH.

As for the escape tunnel part, I just hope you have amazing eyes, because tracking enemy shots in that mess is a nightmare.

I don't know why I don't remember beating it the first time. It's like I wasn't paying attention or something. Or maybe I just didn't understand, or try hard enough to wrap my head around it. This time, I damn near cried. Because this time it all made sense, finally. All the random lines from other characters throughout the game, especially in the beginning ("he DOESN'T row"). Even the popular song choices have significance to the story.

This is what I love about To The Moon, for anyone who hasn't played it yet. The game doesn't flat-out tell you what's so profound about the plot; it just gives you all the pieces and when you eventually put them together, it's a revelation that's staggeringly intense.

After beating Bioshock Infinite, I went on to beat Bioshock again. It's amazing how I more or less knew the twist of the game, but this time I still discovered something I hadn't noticed before.

Spoiler for:
I got how the protagonist is a slave and all that, and the whole fabricated memories part, but for some reason I didn't at all remember the part where the protagonist is actually only, like, 3 years old or something, and he's some kind of genetic Adam freak. Completely forgot about that. So that's why all the enemies call him "monster."

I'm moving on to Bioshock 2, now, which I actually never finished.

Another great game. Plays like Cybernator (same engine) with a lot more polish. The game is beautiful, and they even find ways to render things like the sun beaming through the spaces between skyscrapers, and snow clouding off of surfaces in a blizzard. The music reminds me of Final Fantasy with a more techno edge to it- likely because Nobuo Uematsu had a hand in a lot of it.

Playing a new game, called Firefall. Not too bad, but it's yet another FPS in a few aspects. It can be either a p2w or not, depending how quick you want to get things or not. I personally like the open battleframe switching idea, which basically lets you change your "class" at any point.

I want to, but I heard some really strong reviews against it. People say it doesn't capture the Batman universe like Rocksteady did, but it has a good story. I'll pick it up once it's cheaper, but I feel like that's a break for buying a full price game.

Same here. :p I might wait for the holidays, at least. Or request it for xmas. I'm kinda low on money now, anyways. D: I'm going to try not to compare it to the last two games. I'm under the impression that a lot of games are killed by being compared like that, rather than just scored as their own thing (if that makes sense). D: And uhhh...it's gonna be pretty difficult to top Arkham City. Asylum was amazing, but City was...wow.

Anyways! Currently playing (somewhat):
Kingdom Hearts II (finally)
Skyrim again (on and off, because it's an addiction)
And occasionally watching my sister play Assassin's Creed IV. I don't think that counts for my list, but in case anyone was wondering: so far, it DOES look better than the third. The graphics are beautiful, the main character seems pretty interesting, and the gameplay looks kinda neat. I can't say for sure, because I'm not playing it myself, nor am I watching every bit of it, but it looks like a solid game.

Post by: haloOfTheSun on November 01, 2013, 03:52:14 AM
I haven't heard anything largely negative about it, just lukewarm to "it's pretty good". Seems to definitely be the worst of the 3 so far, which means it could still be pretty cool. I have heard though that the PS3 and 360 versions have freezing and frame rate issues, while the Wii U version runs much more smoothly but lacks multiplayer (but who cares about that). Seems like a wait-until-it's-about-$20-or-less kind of game, though.

I have the other one on 3DS but haven't played it yet, but it doesn't seem like it will be anything more than mediocre and only fun for a little bit.

Also Asylum > City

That sounds about right. I want to play it for the story, I heard that they did a good job with making Batman feel like he was earlier in his career, instead of world's greatest detective status, but those seem to be the redeeming qualities.

I mean, is it so hard to make a Batman game set in an open city with PEOPLE in it? Random crimes going on across the city, etc? People are saying this is just big, not ruined Arkham City landscape.

I beat Bastion, and I'm playing through it again. The game is fun, but up until a certain point it just seems like a game. Up until this song plays, and then things take a shocking emotional turn and the game changes into something much, much more than just a fun game. Really amazing and challenging game (that you need to play), and I'm also really excited for Transistor.

Bastion is the greatest game ever made.

It has an aura of customizability, with the variety of weapons and upgrades, as well as creating the Bastion itself. There are challenges that can be completed for a little extra fun, an amazing soundtrack, a unique narration system, a heart-wrenching story, and memorable characters. It has an entire world filled with unique cultures, races, creatures, religions, conflicts, and an in-depth history that makes you wish you could visit that world before the calamity. Oh yeah, and then there's the villain.
Spoiler for SPOILER ALERT:
The same people you're trying to help. Rucks, creator of the Bastion, and Zia's father, creator of the Calamity.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Arrow on November 05, 2013, 10:57:32 PM
Pokemon.

Are you surprised?

You shouldn't be surprised.

Before that though, I just beat Tales of Xillia. Working on the "secret dungeon" now, but not really with any sort of urgency. I get sick of these "we turned old places you already visited a different color" dungeons.

Actually, Tales Of is getting really lazy with their stories, it feels like. I have fought the same enemies for three games now, and the three act structure is getting a little stale. You beat an important military figure/royal family member boss! But now here's the REALLY important demi-god boss! The day is saved, BUT OH WAIT NO IT ISN'T, BECAUSE HERE'S THE COSMIC SCALE BOSS! Tales of Xillia was a lot of fun, I liked the characters (despite some glaring weirdness that made it hard to get immersed sometimes) and the battle system was fun. A lot of the maps felt really... phoned in, though.

Here's a big flat space with a bunch of enemies in it! That works a little better when you're playing say, FFXII, because it's in real time and you don't have the stagger of battle transitions. Also, there was a lot more variation in FF12 with those areas. You walked along cliffs, you hopped across plateaus, etc. The DUNGEONS in Xillia were alright, and there were certainly some pretty areas in the deepwood and the gorge, but the transitional areas... were just empty. So, so empty. And invariable, three "rooms" long, it felt like. Very flat. Very stark. Nothing especially memorable about them. Disappointing. I was really excited to see this game didn't use the whole "World Map" thing, because that's so friggin' tired... but it wasn't quite done well.

The music, too. Very high whiny strings. And not a lot of it! There were good themes in the game, but I couldn't really name of them out of context, and a lot of the songs were re-used to the point of feeling almost like they were placeholders. It was also very... cheesy Japanese in places, but that's a personal gripe. Pentatonic plunking never really did it for me.

There are tons of subquests in this game. Like 80. But they're not really all that great. "I need a poison stinger. Thank you for poison stinger. Here is a shiba dog tail to staple to your butt." (That said, I REALLY like the attachment system, but it's bullshit that you have to purchase all but about three of the character costumes.) There's no real incentive to complete the fetch quests other than "Maybe THIS prize will be something I'll actually want." Rare monsters are scarce, extra bosses are... well there are about ten, but they're really nothing special, and they're just sort of hanging around the large vast spaces between levels. Wanna fight it? Touch it. Cool. You get a prize. Move on. Would have been neat if...hell, just a little cutscene before and after?

One thing this game did well. Namco always has "annoying animal friend" stuck somewhere into the new tales of games. Teepo managed to be a lot better than Mieu or Noishe or some of the others that have popped up in recent days.

I really don't REGRET my purchase, and they made a lot of interesting changes in this game, but damn if it didn't flat when the shiny wore off. :/

the natives started speaking their native language in the village. I'm not THAT good with Portuguese and I really want to know what they're saying when the village burns down.
So I restarted because I didn't see the option to reset the subtitle options once your game is happening.

Metal Gear: Revengeance. Awesome as awesome gets as far as an action game goes. It has the characters and some gameplay elements of the MG:S series but lacks the emphasis on stealth- while in the MG:S series you could easily become overwhelmed if you were not stealthy, MG:R encourages you to fight everything.

Criticisms include the over-the-top storytelling and all the fucking swearing. A whole fucking shitload of fucking swearing. I expected to see Tarantino in the credits. The DLC is short and essentially a rehash of the main storyline, as well, and there is very little in the way of in-game tutorial.

However, the thrust of the MG:S series is there. It's good enough for a second and third playthrough, IMO.

Been playing Dead Island: Riptide off and on when I have some free time and need to relax by beating zombies to redeath. Funny how this game is pretty much exactly the same as the first one, only not as fun mainly because you start out on like level 15-20, which means you get all your skills well before very long into the game. I think I'm a little more than 50% complete and I'm already level 53 and leveling up is boring now because there are no more good skills since I already have at least a point in everything. They should have added more.

Guns seem to be more effective this time than last time though, so that's kind of fun. Especially the harpoon gun.

Logged back into my account on Dead Frontier and decided to start up an old clan again (USS - Umbrella Security Service), which seems to be coming along fine, but it's slow going. I love how simple it is to play, but I wish there were some aspects that were easier. For example, when you start out, you're in an easier area, and it's pretty quick to get through the first 10 levels or so, but it drops off quick after that. I think that is should be somewhere up near level 20-25 where it drops off like that, seeing as though the level cap is over 100... I'm not entirely sure what the cap is, because I've seen characters that were over 120, some over 150, and a few that were almost at level 200.....

Anyways... Anyone else play this game?

I'm also playing DMC, because it was free on PlayStation Plus. I love it. It's the first Devil May Cry game that, in my opinion, has succeeded in actually being "cool." Every Dante in the previous games was all "too cool to care," but it was overdone. It was trying too hard to not care, and it ended up just being cheesy. I mean, one of the games had a freaking GUITAR as a weapon (SO RADICOOL!!). And the white, long hair. Just freakin cheesy.

DMC nails it, though.

Spoiler for THE REST IS NOT FOR CHILDREN:
There's a part where you run in to this boss, and you do the whole insult/bravado thing back and forth for a bit but it quickly degenerates to Dante and the boss literally yelling FUCK YOU! NO, FUCK YOU! to each other. It's awesome. The game's badass and violent and obscene, but in a very organic and natural way. It never feels too forced.

Also, the combo system is amazing. Of course. And oh god, the music. I bet my neighbors almost called in a noise complaint the first time I played it, because I was BLASTING that shit. And it looks SO good, too. The transitions and mini-cutscenes are so flawless. It gets you so pumped, and it's just a ton of fun to play.

Here's a video of the intro and first level.

DMC was really awesome. I was hesitant to get it at first due to the bad publicity, but Roph convinced me and I'm glad I did. I love the original games a lot, and spent quite a lot of time trying to perfect the mechanics and end up with SSS scores on stuff like Dante Must Die and harder difficulties. DMC's combat was just as good, if not a little better, and unlike any other game in the same fighting style. The story wasn't oh my god perfect, but the writing made up for it by miles.

For real. I don't even really care if the story is good or bad, I'm enjoying everything else about the game so much I just want to keep playing. The music, the gameplay, the personality, the level design, the writing; it's all incredibly solid.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Ser zacheatscrackers on February 20, 2014, 07:45:31 PM
I dunno, the thing with the original 4 DMCs was that the cheesiness was more or less intentional (since you knew Capcom was fairly capable of decent acting and story-telling at the time); once you got past it, the games were amazing. 3 in particular has some of the best hack-and-slash gameplay I've ever seen, since it's so incredibly deep and you're given so many options. 1's a classic through-and-through as well, imo, and I love 4 for many of the same reasons as 3.

DmC (basically what most people refer to the reboot as) isn't necessarily bad, if you ask me, and it's supposed to be a reboot and all, as I said, but it just doesn't have that energetic goofy charm the original games had, so I wasn't able to get into it as much. The combat was pretty fun, but it just didn't have that depth that made the originals click for me, and comboing was waaaay too easy for my taste (you had to mix up weapons in the originals, but you can pretty much use the same weapon until you get SSSes and whatnot, which just took away some of the fun for me). And I honestly would've liked the writing a lot better if it weren't for the constant fucks/shits and whatnot sprinkled everywhere; the originals had profanity as well, but it was much more sparse, so it was more effective imo. Otherwise, the writing isn't terrible. The graphics are AWESOME, though, and apart from some of the 'wub wub' tracks in the OST, it isn't that bad.

Overall, like I said, it isn't a bad game, especially if you treat it as an entity of its own, but I just find it mediocre compared to the other entries in the series.

Yeah I was using the texpack. I got through it though. The rest of the game was mostly fine, crashes only occurred two more times.

There is...not a whole hell of a lot TO the original mass effect. The second one definitely feels a lot more full, and I know I'm gonna get flak for this but, despite having a lot less (seemingly) of the dialogue content I came to love the series for, I feel like I had the most fun playing three. I'm playing through two for the second time, and I definitely feel a LOT more invested having played one and seeing all of the little callbacks. I can't wait to see what happens as a result of Wrex surviving the first game. And I'm also happy that Kaidan is out of the picture. He just seemed...douchey to me.

when i first played me1 i gave up on the game on my first trip to the citadel (came back to it probably a year later before me 2 came out) because there were so many little side quests to do that it felt like a bit of a slog. i wouldn't say thees not much to me 1 just that there's  not a lot of action-y quests.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Arrow on March 02, 2014, 10:42:12 AM
Well I mean, even that feels lacking. Once you get the stuff sorted out on the citadel, and talk to everyone there, you've got...planet roving. And that's VERY barebones. Find a mineral, play a mini game. Now find an "anomaly" (it's a probe, I promise), play the same minigame. Lastly, if you're lucky, find a human science lab / research center / etc. They take one of three room designs, rearrange the set pieces inside (maybe) and place either a shit ton of husks, a shit ton of rocket turrets, or some humanoids in there. On the other side, you get a loot container. It feels very...filler. Story missions are neat, but there aren't many of em. Much of Mass Effect the First feels like completionism for the sake of completionism. I went out of my way to find as many extra things to do as I could, and it really didn't feel like much.

And I mean that. Mass Effect 1 felt weird to me in a lot of ways, and when I started I said to myself "Let's do this *once*."

Now that I've completed it, I almost wanna say I liked the combat more than I like it in 2 in some ways. It got a LOT more vertical in one. And a lot more physical. You don't get charged by Geth Juggernauts anymore in two. There are no enemy units jumping around like springloaded fuck-you missiles. Having to deal with things on all three axes made things very interesting in the first game. Vertical combat consists of...well, stairs, from game 2 onward. That and I feel like ME1 had a better answer to combat than "chest high walls". I didn't just tap space behind a barrier when I needed to heal. I FLED and got onto the other side of an airlock, for the few seconds of relief that gave me from a Prime. Moments like that were admittedly rare, and didn't make the first game a superb experience on the whole, but they were definitely memorable. I can't think of any "wow" moments from ME2's combat.

Also, ME2's minigame saturation is a LOT more noticeable on the third playthrough, JFC.

If you ever go to try again (because despite the grinding, the actual CONTENT part of the game is very short) you can get keys in the fourth town. Head north, then east at around the point you'd see erdrick's cave. You'll follow the riverside to the south until you reach a cave in a small patch of poisonous swamp. Head south through there, and keep heading south until you find a town with a big moat around it. You'll need to enter, then walk around the outside edge of the town (there's a girl at the top of the screen outside the town wallls) to the top left corner. Enter this building, and you can buy keys any time. You can carry up to six! Once you have at least one, you can find a shop in the starting castle as well.

Woah. I remember playing that game when it was NEW. Gah.

Games like that, even the original Final Fantasy, were less about content and more about passing time with battle mechanics. I think that's why most of those games had extremely spacious maps and quests that were the equivalent of finding needles in haystacks. If that hook wasn't there to keep you playing, you'd be done in half an hour. Hell, I could get through FF in two days as it was...

So Dragon Quest one felt somewhat rewarding because I was essentially playing a gaming artifact. Two was alright, but felt like a chore.

Three is fucking awesome. The animations are gorgeous. The music is great. The enemies are even more varied than before. The world is tremendous and everything is NEAT.

Playing the first three games I can see how people got into this. There's all kinds of cool shit, and it gets to the point where it's almost completely non-linear for a long, long stretch of time. This is something I wish I could see in modern games a lot more often.

And then I look at the modern DQs. They're so reliant on references to the old material. There aren't many new enemies anymore. Songs are largely rearrangements of the classics. It's the same thing that Kirby does, but without the major innovations in gameplay. The games aren't BAD...but they definitely lack the sort of oomph that holds my attention all the way to the end. Hell, I played Sentinels of the Starry Skies, and I walked into the final dungeon...and just stopped. By that point, I had completely lost my desire to play. I still haven't finished it. And I was having FUN with that game.

I wonder if continuing to play the older entries will change my opinion.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: haloOfTheSun on March 15, 2014, 05:14:18 AM
DQ8 is generally considered the best in the series and one of the best JRPGs of all time, so I wouldn't say the modern DQs are all like that. Never played 7, but 6 is a bit like that. You could make the argument that 5 is too but it's also commonly cited as the second best of the series. I wouldn't say that any of them are modern though except 8, 9, and 10 (which is an MMO and not even released outside Japan).

The series does tend to fall on its own laurels a bit too much, but in my opinion that wasn't too much of a problem until 9. It's funny because it's kind of the opposite of Final Fantasy, yet the both started out so very similar. Final Fantasy is constantly trying to reinvent itself whereas Dragon Quest seems too afraid to change. Many would argue that neither one executes those very well these days.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: EvilM00s on March 15, 2014, 05:55:08 AM
I would certainly be one of those individuals. I am VERY disappointed with the changes Final Fantasy games have made in the past decade. Gone are the iconic characterisations of the White and Black mages, the magic types, job classes and so forth. THe last Final Fantasy game I played that did anything like that was Tactics.

I'm not saying that FF 7-14 were bad games- I actually enjoyed several in that range. They just weren't what I knew as FInal Fantasy.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Sophist on March 15, 2014, 05:46:20 PM
Both 11 and 14 deeply utilize job classes, magic types, and more, even if they are online games. :I

Honestly, 14 feels more like the older games than anything past 9, excluding 7 and 8 as well.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: EvilM00s on March 15, 2014, 06:44:13 PM
Hm. I tried the online games, and sure, they had the job classes but... I dunno, man, they just didn't feel like Final Fantasy to me. It felt like they took FF and stuck it on a generic MMO interface.

That's my story and I'm skickin' to it.

True in some ways, I think, but your opinion is always your opinion. I don't think we'll see a return to the 'classic' Final Fantasy games, much like we don't see a return to a classic anything anymore. In ten years kids'll look back and nostalgically sigh at FF13 as the 'classic' Final Fantasy.

I can agree with you. The fun was huger, then the frustration about 3 quests that didn't worked. ;)
I finished about 100 quests, so it's a really low chance to get a quest that doesn't run. :)
I also loved the crafting and rewards you get. You allways get new stuff, not like in Skyrim, where you get quick the best and then nothing more any further. ;)

I'm playing Majora's Mask for the first time. Oh my god. It's such a unique game compared to the other entries in the series. Hell, it's a really unique game in general. The time limit before the moon crashes into the earth makes things REALLY tense. Having to go back in time and losing all your progress (minus your inventory) perhaps sounds annoying to some on paper, but there's nothing like the feeling of trying to complete a task with only seconds remaining, failing and having to willingly undo all the progress that led to this task being available. It adds so much more weight and urgency to everything, something most games lack. The atmosphere is incredibly well done too. This may very well overtake Wind Waker on my "best Zelda games" list, and I've only beaten the first dungeon.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. The differences from the other MGS games are a little offputting at first, but one gets used to them quickly.

I really dig the building aspect of the game. The R&D is just fun as shit!

I had intended to play all the games in story order, but with MGS 5 parts 1&2 coming out (i forget when) I may hold off till I get those. If so, Dark Souls II it shall be.

Also, Ground Zeroes (the first part of MGSV) is already out. The Phantom Pain is a MUCH larger game, and doesn't even have a release date yet. You should go ahead and play the previous games as well, since Ground Zeroes is only a couple hours long and revolves around the denouement of Peace Walker.

The chronological order of the canon games is:
3: Snake Eater
Portable Ops (this one is very passable, does not change a lot except how Miller and Big Boss meet)
Peace Walker
MGSV
MG1
MG2
MGS
2: Sons of Liberty
4: Guns of the Patriots
MGR (this is canon you mad bro?)

huh. i didn't know it was already released. Welp, may as well wait to get ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain. By that time I'll be done with Peace Walker, at the rate I'm going...

Thanks for the canon clarification, though. And no, I know MGR is canon... I have my opinions, but it's still decent.

I may stop playing Far Cry 3 entirely because of the Deepthroat mission. It's idiotic, and a perfect example of horrible, amateur game design.

First, you have to sneak in to a place. You can't kill anyone. Why not? I don't know, but the second you do, an alarm goes off. Apparently every soldier is wearing a heart monitor, and some guy is sitting in front of a tv somewhere looking at all 20 soldier's heart rates with his finger literally already on the alarm button just waiting, waiting for one of them to stop. Doesn't matter if nobody else is around. Doesn't matter if the kill is completely silent. As soon as one person is dead, that alarm goes off, and you fail the mission.

Instead, sneak past them. Nevermind that it's broad daylight, and the "sneaking" part involves ziplining across two giant chasms while enemies are literally looking straight at you, and there's practically no cover. Don't worry, they won't actually see you. Because, you know, you're supposed to sneak. It's not that it's difficult, it's that there isn't any difficulty. The soldiers are actually programmed to NOT see you! It's just handed to you, but remember! Don't kill them! Because apparently God is watching, with his finger on that alarm button.

And then once you get to the next checkpoint, you have to run somewhere past 2 guards, who NOW you can kill, and blow up a truck with an RPG in less than 50 seconds or so. So NOW you can kill people. Not only that, now you can fire rockets at them! And then everybody can see you. Nevermind that it could be pitch black (it was for me by the time I realized I wasn't supposed to use any skill to get past the "sneaking" part), or that just 50 seconds ago you could literally walk in front of an enemy and they wouldn't see you, now everybody knows exactly where you are, and they never miss.

It's such a goddamn disappointment. It's like some head designer's 10 year old just saw Predator, and begged his dad to let him design a "super cool" mission in the game he was working on.

Now that I know what to do, and when not to do what should be obvious, and when to forget all that and do the opposite, I'm positive I could beat the mission with minimal effort ... but I kind of just ... don't want to, anymore. I'm just so put off by the whole experience.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Ser zacheatscrackers on March 26, 2014, 02:02:39 AM
Yeah, Deepthroat's a huge pain in the ass. That and Doppelganger, an earlier mission, are the hardest missions in the game since they go on FOREVER and you have to be incredibly careful not to be caught. I had to replay those missions, like, 5-10 times before I completed them. The whole RPG thing at the end of Deepthroat is ridiculous, since you have to be really quick and it's easy to screw up with all the guards and shit everywhere.

The game DOES redeem itself after that mission, though, but I can understand why you'd stop there; I was close to stopping there myself since it was so poorly designed and difficult and Doppelganger was bad enough.

Bravely Default and Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance.

I can't beat the final boss of Bravely Default at level 99 and it annoys me as all hell. The frustration is made worse when I see people online saying they did it at a quarter of my level, making me know it's only my fault I'm getting my ass handed to me.  :mad:

KH3DS was pretty cool. It was a little short and had a ridiculously lackluster final boss, but on the whole a nice game considering I got it for £15.

Oh and Arcade shmups here and there, some of them I want to review in my spare time since I've wanted to do something like that for a while now...I really love shmups and bullet hells.

Skyrim, after a long time of not playing. Somehow despite this being the third time I've started a playthrough, I'm STILL seeing all kinds of new shit.

Plus the mods are even cooler now. I've installed about 120+ and I'm still adding more stuff.

Post by: haloOfTheSun on April 04, 2014, 02:47:07 AM
It gets irritating only if you don't like NES-era RPGs that basically had no plot in the middle of the game and nothing but a seemingly endless string of the same battles you've fought already. Which admittedly is annoying. Not as bad as people tend to make it out to be if you've played (and enjoyed), say, Final Fantasy 1-3 since those pretty much all do the same thing.

If you don't mind the somewhat mild spoilers as to exactly what this entails:
Spoiler for:
After chapter 4 and after awakening all 4 crystals, the game seemingly "sends you back in time" and you have to awaken the crystals again, while most of the boss battles and dungeons remain optional at least. And then you have to do it again. And again. And then one more time. It goes by quicker than it sounds, but you are doomed to fighting the same enemies (at least the crystal guardians, other bosses are optional and you can turn off random encounters) over and over. I have not played beyond this point yet, so I don't know if it redeems itself.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: bluntsword on April 04, 2014, 03:16:47 AM
I think what in looking for in a mid game is a big hurdle that gets me something pretty cool. Like right before you grab the airship or two worlds combine into one. Yada yada.

So I may just grab it and anticipate. I enjoyed ff1-3.

And no.

No spoilers.

I re-mapped the keyboard/mouse, and now I'm fucking awesome at this game. It's challenging, but a lot of fun, and absolutely STEEPED in lore, and fantastically told history (with exceptional voice acting). My only real complaint is that it seems so stagnant. There's a TON of shit to do each chapter, but each chapter seems to take place in a rather small area. The character interactions, side-quests and scripted events do very, very well to keep it interesting by changing things up a little bit, but you can't ignore the fact that you've really just been traipsing around the same general area for the last 10 hours, even if you do see something new or under a different situation every now and then.

Don't be afraid to skirt around the incoming Rebel fleet. Don't put yourself into fuellessness and extreme danger, but visiting other star systems instead of darting from exit to exit can net you some cool stuff. A cloaking system and a diverse variety of weapons can get you victory easily. Having just laser weapons or just missiles is a good way to die at the end.

Also the Fire Beam is way too good. If you can get one, use it. Fire is always over powered.

While it's good to repair, it's even better to invest in your ship. You accrue a lot of things that you can also sell while flying, this couples with the 'go exploring' thing. The rebel fleet doesn't jump, they take the same time to get across each system.

Is that a sign of a bad player? How did you know that's all I had?  ;9

Nah, it's just an easy camp to fall into. If at about halfway through you find yourself with one type of weapon, try and sell one to get a different one. Like a firebeam.

Also, if someone boards your ship, open up the doors to create a vacuum into space and they'll die. It pays off to upgrade your ship's door systems.

Half-Minute Hero: The Second Coming

This is one of my favourite games of 2014 already. I thought it wouldn't be able to live up to the twist and turns the first game threw at you, but I was completely wrong. Also one of the chapters ended on a climax that got me by complete surprise.

Spoiler for Actual Spoilers:
The final part of the chapter I'm talking about is named "Hero 3 Billion", but you have to jump through different timelines from previous chapters to get back to your own, so the timer fluctuates. You even meet the ancestors of your character while jumping, with one jumping explaining how an ancestor defeated someone in the past: You actually helped him while in that timeline.

I think I'm on the final chapter now, I really can't wait to see how crazy this story gets.

I beat Witcher 2. Now I'm going to play it again, and take the other path. And use some mods.

I'm crazy excited for Witcher 3. Especially since reading an article where they pretty much said, and I'm very much paraphrasing here, "It's like Skyrim, with less (or no) fetch quests, and more story."

edit: here's the real thing they said, lol:

Quote
Nor have CD Projekt Red simply padded out The Witcher 3’s Skyrim-exceeding open world with unimaginative busywork. They’ve systematically banished fetch quests from the game—or, at least, as much as a team can when making a high-fantasy RPG. It’s one of the ways the Polish developers are refining their identity through the creation of The Witcher 3, where quest and narrative design is being meticulously worked and reworked right up until release. The philosophy is, if you need to have a fetch quest, make sure the story does a damn good job of hiding it.

“When we do have these situations, which is rarely, we compensate for it with the narrative,” writer Jakub Szamalek explains. “It’ll definitely be an interesting story in itself – you’ll be intrigued by the NPC’s motives, and where this is all leading. Even when you have a simple structure it’s something we’re compensating for in the story.”

The reason for abolishing fetch quests? CD Projekt Red don’t like them much either. “We are trying very hard to limit such interactions of structures to a minimum because we don’t think they’re interesting.” Instead, they want to be radical.

Ah, dude, I'd thought you'd already played it. Yeah, there's something about that ending. It's got such a strange, almost un-explainable completeness to it. It's great.


Guess what I'm playing. SKYRIM AGAIN. GREAT.
I've poured over 120 hours in to this game. BUT I'M BACK FOR MORE!

Actually, there's this one mod I got that's really fun. It's called "sneak tools." It lets you put out candles and permanent torches to make things darker, and gives you **ROPE ARROWS**.
Rope arrows! They're a little buggy, and it takes a little effort to get it to work right, but it is fun. I had to sneak in to the Jarl's private quarters in Whiterun, and yeah, I could have just walked in the front door and snuck upstairs. BUT NO. I used **ROPE ARROWS** and I climbed up to that balcony, man! It took HOURS (-minutes-) to do it, and it was a bit buggy, but I did it! And it felt AWESOME!

And then I sneak inside, and there's a guard standing right there staring at me, and he doesn't even care. That was lame. I was like "don't mind me, I'm just stealing everything valuable in this room while the Jarl sleeps soundly a few feet away" and he was just like

:V "Have you heard they're reforming the Dawnguard?" :V

shit's hard

after this, Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim. there's only a 32 year gap between Daggerfall and Oblivion, so I had the idea of making the same character in each game. the Nerevarine becomes essentially immortal at the end of Morrowind's main questline so I can carry the character over from Oblivion to Skyrim.

I just started playing Might & Magic X again for the first time since I cleared the intro dungeon. It's really a great dungeon crawl, even if that's all it is. The world is pretty much static, and you can't really inflect personality in your characters. But everything else is a blast.

The only other first-person dungeon crawl I've played is Grimrock, and while similar, this is probably the closest thing I'll get to a D&D 4e video game. I'm already thinking of starting a new game with characters modeled around my friends' characters, lol.
Title: Re: What are you playing?

Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: SirJackRex on October 01, 2014, 06:27:16 AM
Yea man I for sure would. It's pretty much pure combat, tho, so if you crave more class customization, items, and combat/tactical options, then you'll love Grimrock. It really makes Grimrock look like an adventure game because while there are puzzles and riddles, they don't seem to be integral in any way to progressing through the game (except for a some of simple/brute-forcible puzzles). The game can be really brutal in the same fashion tho. Like, you're in a low-level wilderness and see the entrance to a "Dangerous Cave," but like, don't fucking do it, man.

One piece of advice: Don't really worry about having a dedicated tank. Have someone tough, but DPS and trapping enemies is really way more important as far as I've progressed. I restarted with really powerful party and cleared the same areas as my initial party , but at like three levels below and in half the time. It's just so much faster to abuse aoe and crowd control.

Dragon Age 2 at home (and Hyrule Warriors at Malson's house) B)

DA2 is actually surprisingly good. I didn't pick it up for awhile because I was skeptic of the changes, but with the new one coming soon, we figured we'd give it a chance. The combat is great and it's nice to have a hero that has a changeable personality (not to mention the ability to make your heroes look really cool).

DA3 - seems to actually be living it up and exceeding the first so far, but I guess that was remedied easily by making the game feel more "skyrim" and less "Dragon Age". Adding in jumping, mounts, openish worlds, and less forced combat were all great ideas.

But I love to play Euro Truck Simulator 2 these day's.

Malson has been playing that lately, too. Watching him play it puts me to sleep. Playing it myself scares the living daylights out of me. :mad: I kept hitting things and it reminds me of all the things that could actual go wrong with driving. I guess it helps that I don't have to drive a truck everyday, though.

It's Rogue Legacy.

I've been playing a lot of shit lately. I beat The Evil Within, which ranged from perfection to fucking bullshit. It was, overall, magnitudes and bounds in every capacity better than the typical shitty cinematic TPS that's all the rage nowadays.

Sanctum 2 is simply wonderful, which is no surprise given how much I enjoyed the original. I just can't believe it's taken me this long to play it.

Kairo is surreal and haunting and beautiful.

The Blackwell Legacy isn't at all what I was expecting. I've lost a lot of motivation to play it, but I'm still not very far and I have enjoyed the puzzles so far.

Skullgirls is very cool, and it's probably the most enjoyable 2D fighter I've played so far.

I've played some Payday 2 solo, which is fun but frustrating as hell. If anyone grabs this, shoot me a message if you're looking for an extra player!

And of course, Smite. It ranges from shit to crack.

Dark Souls 1
 Where am I? Guess I'll just move forward... oh, I have to ring some bells? Cool.
 I rung the bells, now what? Oh something opened up, cool cool.
 I have to collect the lord souls? On it.
 Time to end this.

Dark Souls 2 (At least, for me so far.)
 Where am I? Oh... that's not really an answer.
 What am I doing? Looking for a castle, so I can talk to the king?
 Where is the castle?
 Wait, what was I doing?
 Have I even been near the castle?
 Are you the castle?
 What am I doing?
 What is going on?

Still, the challenges the game pose are somehow appealing. Then again, I was raised in an abusive household.

Also delving the old emulator files, and the wifey just got SimCity 4.

Well, for a while you will be. The Emerald lady chicky is REALLY vague about the main point of the game, but its not unlike the original Dark Souls. That's all I will say lest I spoil shit.

Just know that the king may be responsible for the darkness consuming the world.

Also, read this. I agree...

Quote
DS1 was fine even if you didn't masturbate about the 2deep lore; the big snake dude tells you to go kill some bosses and become Gwyn's successor to prevent an age of darkness. Ok, swell.

In 2, you start off trying to lift the curse, then you... wander around a forest for some reason, then kill some guys, then... wander around some other areas, then fight some bosses, and then suddenly you're trying to take a throne? And green lady is a robot or something? And there's a queen? And suddenly the queen is a zombie? And then you get locked in a tiny room with a chair?

>you actually have a motivation in DS2
you arguably have a motivation to "seek the king," since that's your only lead to a cure. but by the time you're dream-diving into giant trees so you can unblock a chasm that's gated by soul-golems and seal yourself inside a kiln, you're just woolgathering key collectibles

DaS1 had plenty of keys but you had a coherent objective of succeeding Gwynn that was accomplished in the final boss fight. neshandra has fucking nothing to do with your character's quest for a cure, except being a generic Evil standing between you and the ending cutscene

Play Starcraft if you really want to hate yourself. Besides, I thought that people played LoL and DotA to hate on other people!

I decided that I wanted to play Gothic since I never really got into it way back when (I wasn't really into open-world RPGs when it first came out). Damn are the controls difficult, but I'm actually liking it a lot more this time around. I guess I should thank Bethesda for making Fallout 3 and Skyrim so good that it got me into the genre more...

at least with Starcraft a game is pretty much decided in 15 minutes, if you've got even a drop of skill you can put up a good fight and eventually win or lose around the 30 minute mark

with league of legends you're basically fucked in the ass, you get steamrolled and hope everyone on your team isn't a bunch of pouty babies who won't surrender at the 20 minute mark, or you end up fighting hard and someone fucking throws it at 50 minutes in when it's basically down to the wire

in starcraft when you fuck up it's all your fault, not the 13 year old kid in california who spent the first 5 minutes of the game afk because his mom made him fold the laundry

Still hooked on Warframe.  Being a "free to play" format, it encourages payment in real mine for virtual items which can be acquired through normal gameplay, albeit much more slowly. But since I come from the first generation of gamers (read: Old) I dont mind the grind. So far, I've only put in $20.00 for some super exclusive purchase only stuff. Worth it? Still deciding.

If I can kill the flagship a single time that will be enough for me. . . but I can't even do that.

I mean, a lot of those people are tumblrites, so their opinion is automatically invalid, but still, why is this game revered so highly? It's really not that great and in a month or so people are going to completely forget it exists.

i think a lot of the praise for Undertale comes from the circumstance. if Undertale was released in the mid-90s, as a contemporary of its ultimate inspiration of Earthbound, it would probably just be considered a solid game with a compelling cast of quirky characters, and it would get some praise for the way combat is handled.
but it wasn't released in 1994, it was released in 2015, in a time when so many of the most successful games have so little meaning or charm to them; in the day when the first-person-shooter and the third-person-action-(sandbox)-extravaganza reign supreme. we are just now coming out of a period of mass-produced spunk-gargle-wee-wee, and Undertale is a reminder of the nuance that can be achieved in the medium of video games.

Undertale doesn't have the best story, or the best mechanics, or (quite obviously) the best graphics. few games manage to have all of these things. but Undertale is remarkable for its charm - it oozes character from every orifice. i doubt it will be shortly forgotten, but i do agree that it is not one of the best games ever. it will live on as a proud homage to the Mother franchise, and a charmingly intricate and compassionate game, but in twenty years we'll still be talking about Earthbound - i'm not so sure about Undertale.

i dunno though, that's just me. i'm not a tumblrette though so my opinion at least has base validity.

But that's like saying Shovel Knight was only praised because it was released in 2014 and not 1989. There is a mild truth to that due to the game being an intentional throwback. But Shovel Knight was received well mostly due to its gameplay and the fact that it's a fun game that holds up well even when compared to those NES games it's imitating (and even surpasses like Ducktales and shit), while Undertale is a cheap imitation of Earthbound. Undertale being released in 2015 doesn't make it more special imo. I guess whether or not it's charming is up to personal taste (personally I think it has its moments but it isn't all that remarkable in regards to charm).

I get why it's liked, I don't get why it's loved so fervently. It just seems like another indie flavor-of-the-month-or-two game. But yes, your opinion has validity. I'm not saying anyone who thinks it's great is automatically wrong, I just don't understand.

I love undertale.
It's just that sometimes a game really strums the right cords, really touches the notes on the right key. (For you music people ;))
Some other games that struck a similar cord were (for me at least) OFF, Cave Story and Lisa:The Painful/The Joyful.

The right mix of characters and noface npcs. The right balance of strange and normal. Then you add some funny and sad.
Also I could just have really bad taste, no clue.

Fo y'all to judge my taste for yourself, here are my my 5 favorite games of ever (roughly in this order) are Dark Souls, Cave Story, Undertale, OFF and Lisa.

Metal gear was supposed to be the best Story driven game this year. Fallout was supposed to be right behind it. The only one I feel did a good job of being a great game with a great story was The Witcher 3.

If you told me last year I'd think a Witcher game would be higher on my list than entries from kojima and bethesda, I'd have asked you to lay off the drugs.

Fallout games have never been particularly story-driven. The main character speaks in Fallout 4, but the story isn't really any deeper than it has been in the other entries. Because they're sandboxes, the elegance of the Fallout games (especially Fallout 3 onwards) is that they manage tell hundreds of small stories using very limited exposition. The stories that play out amongst the world's pre-war and post-war inhabitants via small things like terminal entries and holotapes and diaries and object placement are pretty eloquent at times, painting a broad picture with very little. There are so many unmarked, non-quest related stories that you can find in the Fallout games that are really clever, short-stories and I think they more than make up for the lack of a central storyline because they make the world feel very, very alive. The post-Fallout 3 games certainly wouldn't work without them, because they're a large part of what makes exploring the wasteland entertaining and interesting.

But yeah, expecting the game to be story-driven as far as the central plot goes? That's never been the case nor the intention. It's a sandbox, it's much more about world-building than the central plot.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat

Any of y'all played the Stalker games?
Really liking it so far. (10hrs in)

Right now I'm getting a team ready to go to pripyat.

If you haven't played them, holy shit these games are 2SPOOPY4ME.

hey who cares but here are my top five of 2015. it was a pretty phenomenal year, it was fun and crazy and creators just let loose. a lot of games on all sides had so much passion put in to them. there are a lot of themes at play, and it's great to see how well an emotionally-driven game can perform in this era, which i thought would be saturated with emotionless brown shooters. it was a joyful surprise of a year.

Spoiler for 5:
5. rainbow six siege is fucking brilliant, and it's the most fun i've had with a shooter in a very long time. it's got shoddy UI and terrible netcode, but good golly, i don't care. generally, i tend to despise multi-player shooters, but i have a soft spot for CS and Payday, and this game feels like their love-child. and the community, which is the thing i always hate the most about these games, is lovely, and i hope it stays the way it is.
Spoiler for 4:
4. super mario maker is such a dumb shitstorm and nothing on it makes sense and it's the best game nintendo released in 2015, maybe even a year or two before that. it's full of dumb kids making shitty "DDA" levels and weird japanese people filling their levels with their crazy culture, but in the midst of it all are some levels which outshine nintendo's own level design. there is so much that can be done and crafted in this game, it shows the full creative potential of a giant audience. and dumb DDA spectacle levels.
Spoiler for 3:
3. undertale is great. i can talk with no end about the wicked branching story system (which is achieved by presenting choices to the player through its innate gameplay, which is fucking rad and we need to see more of it), but even such a well-executed mechanic as that would fall flat on a hollow game. undertale is anything but flat though, and that fact is owed to the character and charm it spews out at you. it's so silly and creative, but also introspective and commentative. it takes the look and feel of the mother games, and applies a haunting spec ops-esque message to it. i've seen a lot of people play it, and every one of them has had an emotional attachment to this game in one way or another.
Spoiler for honourable mention:
2.5 (hon. mention) the binding of isaac: afterbirth (doesn't really count because it's DLC but i just like talking about isaac, and i didn't make a list last year and i need to put rebirth on something)
Spoiler for 2:
2. i am in love with lovecraft and cosmic horror. jumpscares are dumb, and while i can appreciate the craft of games like FNAF, i just can't sink my teeth in to jumpscares like i can with lovecraftian horror. i always get excited when i hear a game is flirting with cosmic horror, and the way bloodborne descends from the easy facade of bram stoker witches and vampires to the overwhelmingly deep implications of cosmic horror. coupled with the tried and true complexity of gameplay and ambiguity of story explored in the Souls series, bloodborne is going to be a standout game for years to come. another great work in to cosmic horror in 2015 is the consuming shadow, a rogue-like-ish quest, presented as a puzzle to stop cultists from summoning a great demonic alien god. it's Yahtzee Croshaw's best game, and a neat look (when compared to bloodborne) at the different ways cosmic horror can be handled in games.
Spoiler for 1:
1. keep talking and nobody explodes straddles the line between party and hardcore gaming so well, and it's impossible not to have fun with it no matter how you're playing it. it's exactly what i love about games - simple concept, deep gameplay, and it even ticks the box of being a great innovative use for new technology (not that i'll be buying an oculus for it though lol). i know it's quite removed from the other games on this list, but that's the thing with this game: it is so different. it's such a bizarre game, there's nothing quite like it, it's intense and it's funny and i just want to play it with all of my friends to see the different ways people play it. it's the most unique, curious and interesting game this year.

okay

I guess I'll make a list to, so i can be a cool person too

Spoiler for:
5.
4.
3. Dark Souls 2 SOTFS (I wouldn't put it on the list if I wasn't just using it to fill a slot... ,_,)
2. Mario Maker (Would have forgotten this if you hadn't put it in your list.)
1. Undertale (GOTY all years, goty all time. GOAT)
Spoiler for:
Not really, if Dark Souls 1 had been released this year it would be #1. I prefer Dark Souls over Undertale.

That part of fallout you're describing is still there. using things like terminals and the world around you to paint a picture of this post apocalypse is still there in spades. the environment guys didn't take a day off.
The problem lies with them deciding that they wanted the PLAYER to build all the major towns besides like 3-5 of them and in doing so made the wasteland feel empty. the remaining interesting places were inhabited by raiders who automatically start shooting as soon as they spot you.

What the fuck was the point of having a combat arena where they have fights and gamble on them or a robot race track where they do a similar thing and then just make everything immediately go hostile when you approach.  The only living beings that are not hostile and not unnamed npcs exist in like one of a handful of places.


Fallout 3 had tons of little towns with people, who usually had quests (that weren't ambient repeatable shit) for you to do. Fallout 4 just doesn't and feels lifeless because of it. I can build cool settlements all day but when all the npc's are unamed settlers why the fuck should i bother?
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: &&&&&&&&&&&&& on January 11, 2016, 02:14:31 AM
The race track was the worst of it, I think.

I was playing Fallout 1 and I was in some town, talking to people and thought the people seemed a little assholy. It didn't really bother me much, but when I was about to leave I thought to check who these people even were. Raiders lo.
It's annoying that bethesda has taken the laz route and just made all the raider in the game hostile. (Or atleast 99.9% I think there's like 2 that will talk to you in FO3.)

I'm hoping for a mod that allows you to talk to the race track dudes and maybe even bet on races.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: Sated on January 11, 2016, 07:13:35 PM
I actually thought that was a strong part of the narrative. The idea that the Minutemen were the only thing really holding things together out in the Wasteland is driven home by how ridiculously lawless everywhere is outside of Goodneighbour and Diamond City. It's not like the Railroad can help keep things together because they need to stay hidden, and The Institute clearly have no interest in helping those above ground given the distrust that exists between them and the rest of the Commonwealth. Essentially, The Commonwealth is an area where there's a very recent power vacuum that's been left by the disintegration of the Minutemen, and given that none of the more "civil" powers in the area are willing (or able) to fill that vacuum it makes sense that the Commonwealth is largely full of lawless scum. So it didn't really bother me one bit that there weren't more settlements that were friendly, because I thought it added much more to the world-building and the narrative than it took away. Especially when you consider the fact that terminal entries etc. add a lot of background to the infighting between different settlements of Raiders that you find dotted around the landscape, which I thought was a really good touch because it added more to the Raiders than just having them all be faceless and unnamed would.

Post by: Malson on January 14, 2016, 02:35:54 PM
Fallout 4 pros: open world, lots of stuff to collect, settlement building and crafting is neat, gunplay is awesome and much better than fallout 3, exploration is rewarding

Fallout 4 cons: dialogue is indisputably awful, settlement building gets old quick, nothing feels handcrafted, quests have the originality of a free to play mmo, you can do a lot of stuff but it feels as though there's no point to most of it

Bethesda's writing team from the days of morrowind and oblivion have completely disbanded by now and it shows. Todd Howard and his crew released an entertaining game, but it feels half baked. Even if they intended it as a sandbox, its still a half baked sandbox because resources are so limited in the fallout universe by design. I still really like the game. But I feel like anyone who would choose it as game of the year over something like witcher 3 must be misinformed. IN MY OPINION
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: yuyu! on January 15, 2016, 04:10:25 AM
I haven't played either Fallout or Witcher, but I have seen Malson play both them quite a bit. Of the two, I'd be more likely to pick up the Witcher in a heartbeat. The quests are interesting, the dialogue is well-written, the gameplay is fun to watch, and the overall look of the game is beautiful. I got pretty bored watching him play Fallout... The gameplay just didn't look fun, nor did the dialogue seem particularly interesting.

Dark Souls and Dark Souls 3.
I beat Dark Souls 3, and that made me want to play the first again.

[spoils]Dark Souls 2 can rot and die. I have no want to play that again. Before 3, I disliked 2. Now after playing 3, 2 feels unplayable. Didn't think I'd come to hate 2 any more than I already did.[/spoils]

We watched Malson's roommate played Xenoblade X and he had several complaints about it (especially with the music and characters)... He stopped playing once he got to a certain point where it was supposed to "get better" and said that it was still awful. o_o

I really wanna play Xenoblade Chronicles though! ;_;

You know, the music is just about the only ok thing with XBX, but it still is def put to shame compared to the first game, that's an absolute certainty.

And I also have to agree that XBX is just a PAIN to play - they tried so hard to make it sci-fi that they took away the fantasy and adventure out of the story, even made the gameplay and locations just downright confusing which totally takes the FUN out of it. The characters are pretty blah in comparison, and it doesn't feel consistent with the first when you get to play an ACTUAL protagonist and instead are prompted to create your own toon that literally says nothing in the game. Boring.

The landscapes are designed beautifully, creatures very first-game feel, but it just lacks the story. Honestly.
And without the story, it is just... Yeah, I'm not really sure if I NEED to finish it by this point. XD
If I do, I have to actually re-start the game and put it on Easy Mode down from Normal because Normal is like playing on hardcore mode and just frustrating as all get-out, and I'm the type of person that isn't easily stumped by console games and it bothers the hell out of me. XD

*sigh*


But Xenoblade Chronicles I could sing praises about until I'm blue in the face.
It is actually my FAVORITE game now.
Just beautifully created, from the scenery, to the characters, to the story, and even the gameplay is fun.
It was a JOY to play. I played it back-to-back after I finished the first go, and I have never done that with a game.

Definitely play it. It's awesome. :3

I played some of Amnesia: Dark Descent today. This game is not scary. Everyone that said it is scary is a giant WUSS ok. OOOOO these rooms are dark !!! \/\/ ( ) \/\/ there's strange noises sometimes !!!! WHOA THE WIND IS BLOWING

Let me just say: *yawn*

Puzzles so far haven't been very interesting so I'm not sure if there will be enough to keep my interest. :mad: It has a good atmosphere, at least, but wow this game was incredibly overhyped.

if you recall I played it back then because roph wanted me to stream it, I was so bored that roph stopped watching because I wasn't scared, it's 90% attempts at jump scares.

If it had good puzzles maybe, but the only "puzzle" I ran into before I quit was wander around and find items to be allowed press the use key on a chemistry set for some reason.

I don't remember that but that definitely sounds like roph lol.

I stuck around in hopes the puzzles would be interesting but they just weren't. They could have been though. You need to create an acid to dissolve this mysterious biological tissue blocking your path, and must acquire the ingredients and create it? Cool! Oh... you don't actually have to create it correctly or anything, you just put everything in a bottle and the ingredients are found along the only path you can take...

After that the only puzzles are encountering locked doors and finding the key in the only other place you can look, and figuring out how to open locked doors while hiding from enemies.

I got past the prison and to the beginning of the sewer and stopped there. The infamous "water" part of the game was not scary. It was tense but I wasn't like OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD it was just "dangit I gotta run and jump correctly or I'll be dead". The prison wasn't hard like everyone said, it was just "hide behind barrels until the thing goes away", and if the thing sees you and it's too late I never screamed and ran in terror I just figured "well, I'm dead" and stood there and let it kill me and started again because there's no punishment for dying. And usually dying starts you in a better location than you were in, plus you keep all your progress, so hey.

I'm playing Dead Siland.
