I'm still playing BG3 playthrough number 2 but I find that game hard to talk about because of spoilers and this game really makes me want to figure out stuff myself. I can't even watch tube videos about it.

 No.113792

>>113791
I dunno about that, I think that in terms of discussion BG3 is one of the perfect games to talk about. Especially since there's so many different ways things can occur that nobody will really have the same playthrough as someone else. In a way the game encourages discussion so that people can hear about things they never even thought of and then try it out. Especially with some of the perception checks there are which people may or may not pass in a run.

Bought rune factory 3 special on steam. It's probably the last rune factory game I'll buy unless they port the earlier games. I can't trust their future projects after how awful rune factory 5 turned out. It's such a leap backwards compared to how nice 3 and 4 are.

I've been playing a lot of GTA V recently and I can't help but feel like the game is incredibly lifeless and lacking in depth. There are almost no locations you can go into outside of a predefined stores. It's really making me kind of depressed that Volition imploded, likely meaning that the Saints Row series is dead forever and will never have a Saints Row 2 remaster. That game had great diversity of locations with many, many places you could go inside of and walk around, and far greater customization.

I married Pia. She's so cute and I love her voice. I asked her to call me darling and it was the best decision I made. RF3 is really good but at the same time it made me realize just how many QoL features RF4 introduced. For example in this game, if you have a recipe that requires small milk and small eggs, you can only use small milk and small eggs. In RF4 you could use large or medium, it doesn't matter. Things feel sort of tedious in RF3. Still fun though, I'll probably play until I have a couple children with Pia.

Currently I'm working through the Baldurs Gate series from the OGs to the new one. It's a nice but painful trip down memory lane. BG3 will probably be the only game released this year I'll play.

Absolutely appalling the state of modern RPG releases.

Oh no! You may find it hard to play the old ones. The game improved immensely with each installment, so you'll find the older games quite cumbersome at times. 2 especially will be hard to stomach as I can't go back to it even though it was the first I played. 1 is... well... it's a game.

>There's far too few good touhou fangames for how passionate the following is.

I think it's because of how much more investment is required to make a game and also because games get hit by copyright much harder.
There are a lot of Touhou games on steam but they are Chinese shovelware that seem to get past copyright somehow, if a Japanese or Western dev tries to monetise Touhou like that and is found out they get removed.

So the best Touhou fangames are passion projects but some of those do get monetised if they get picked up by Zun and are allowed to be released, like Genso Wanderer.

Japanese developers are still shitting on the native PC userbase as usual. It's ridiculous how many JP games on Steam have abusive pricing in Japan compared to other regions, have the original language removed, or are outright unavailable for purchase.

The difference is that Noita is a Roguelite first, and a Finnish autism game second. The first step is getting better at the game and good enough that you can navigate and fight through the first few layers. Once you've grasped how the game functions, then you start experimentation. Instead of going straight down to new layers, how about left and right? Play with spells and wands, there's always a spell combo that you haven't tried before. Smash different potions in a pit and see how they interact (or dont). Once you've understood the wands and spells, you've pretty much reached the halfway point. The rest is exploration and experimentation into godhood.

I started playing riichi city a while back since I heard it was a mahjong client available on steam. The server is global with the ability to swap between JP and EN language on the fly, which I think is really nice. The characters feel very animated and the emotes are animated aswell. The quality for emotes varies though, early characters are pretty rough but later ones look alright. They're also doing a their first collab with lycoris soon and that looks fun. (wish it was something else though like jashin)

Not sure how I'd compare it to MJS, it still feels rough here and there but the devs are always updating the game and it's noticable. Biggest downside is the music though, I have to play it on mute.

I'm getting strong urge to replay Monster Hunter World, but doing it solo so I can take my time and do it slowly and do the side stuff like taking pictures of cats and stuff. Back when we played it together online I always meant to go back and do that, but now it's been so long that I think I can just start over and get more out of it.
But first I think I'm going to play Dungeon Travelers 2-2!
To many people's surprise, the old Vita-only title that never got a translation got one on PC recently, although it's confined to some crappy online service with bad DRM (like limited installs) so I'm not exactly in a rush to not pirate it. I want to throw my money at Aquaplus, not some terrible company.

Another surprise is that they hold onto the original HD art despite the vita's tiny screen, so the art is absolutely beautiful. Ah, Sting and Aquaplus together, the same partnership that created Utawarerumono 2 and 3. Just like the "first" one I know this game will be incredible.

I played and enjoyed the first Mary Skelter on Vita (or was it 3DS?). Some of the dungeon designs were really good and I liked the gimmick with the boss enemy things on the map (forgot what they were called). It was kind of FoE-like, but done in much more interesting way.
I did eventually get kind of tired of it, but I did beat it. I thought that the combat lacked as much depth as I would prefer, with a lot of the classes being kind of worthless. Idea Factory kind of struggles in this regard; they make really enjoyable worlds but the gameplay can be quite shallow. I think they would make fantastic VNs. (does anyone still make those...?)
The atmosphere, story and characters were fantastic in Mary Skelter and if 2 is anything like the first one then it would be great, too. I'll play it eventually, but since I'm playing DT2-2 right now it won't be soon since I meed to space out DRPGs or I get bored of them faster.

I highly recommend you try out Demon Gaze 1 and 2 if you like Mary Skelter. After looking, the original Demon Gaze made its way to Steam but the second one is still stuck on Vita/PS4 for some reason. Huh. The atmosphere is different, but if I were to think of DRPGs that were closest to Mary Skelter these would be my choice.
Of course you also need to play Dungeon Travelers! 3 of them in total! (don't know if Johren released the DT1 translation yet, for some reason they did 2 and 2-2 first for the decade-later PC release)
Japanese DRPGs are kind of my thing and Vita was truly a fantastic system for them. Ah, I miss it...

The new Total War is out and barely anyone is playing it.

I don't understand why this game even exists. Mainstream history fans don't want it because the time period is too niche. Warhammer fans don't want it beceause it's not Warhammer. And RTS fans don't want it because it uses the same dumbed down game mechanics from the previous games. (; ̄Д ̄)

History fans also probably aren't playing it because of the treatment to the last few "historical" TW games. Sure there was the "We Wuz Kangs" crowd shiposting about the niggers, but that isn't as big as people think. You're right though, but the time period would've been great; but, just Egypt, the Levant, and Hittite empire is a bit too small of an area. It feels weird to cut out the rest of the neighboring kingdoms, waste of the setting to cut out Greeks, Assyrians, and Babylonians. And this is a mainline game, not their saga titles.

>I highly recommend you try out Demon Gaze 1 and 2 if you like Mary Skelter. After looking, the original Demon Gaze made its way to Steam but the second one is still stuck on Vita/PS4 for some reason.
i still use my vita and ps4 almost daily, so that's not really an issue to me.
i looked it up on steam, but the description and synopsis sparked no interest in me. i don't know if this is weird at all, but i get...upset? probably not the right term, but i really hate fantasy settings with orcs and mages and stuff like that, none of it is particularly interesting to me. like, on a good day, i'd describe myself as a fan of Etrian Odyssey, but i've been slowly crawling through the HD remaster of 1, partially because there's no story, but also because the setting and environment do nothing for me, so it's hard to find motivation to continue playing it. not to say that i don't value gameplay at all, since i love the combat and exploration in that game, but i think i need a good balance between story/characters, gameplay, art direction, and music to get super invested in a game. Mary Skelter engrossed me partially because its atmosphere, setting, and theme was (relatively) super unique, especially for a dungeon crawler, i really wish there was more stuff like it. or, hell, i'll even take something like Persona 1 or Persona Q, i really love the highschool
setting, and thought it worked really well in a DRPG.
>Of course you also need to play Dungeon Travelers! 3 of them in total!
i've been keeping an eye on the let's play thread for it! it definitely looks fun to play, and is visually really nice (i like that the enemies are 2D sprites, i feel like Mary Skelter would've benefitted from doing that), though i know for a fact i would not be able to sit through one game in its entirety, let alone 3 of them for a lot of the same reasons i mentioned before...
>Idea Factory kind of struggles in this regard; they make really enjoyable worlds but the gameplay can be quite shallow.
i've been playing through a lot of their games recently. they've quickly become probably my favorite game studio, but i can kind of see what you mean. i get the impression that they want to be really ambitious with their games (especially with their more recent stuff like Death End re;Quest 2, Mary Skelter Finale, and Sisters vs Sisters), but for one reason or another, be it lack of budget or lack of resources/manpower, they just can never seem to quite realize their vision for these games. it's a weird messed up scenario where i think they could really benefit from having a higher budget for their games, but that would require more people actually buying their games, which...isn't happening.
i don't know if Compile Heart (the development studio that usually makes the games that Idea Factory publishes) does visual novels--i know there's a spinoff VN for Mary Skelter that i actually don't know too much about because i haven't gotten to it yet, but i know Idea Factory has a couple of VNs like Charade Maniacs and Cupid Parasite that i'm not interested in at all. as much as i like the worlds and stories IF and CH make, i'd rather them not make too many VNs, i like their actual games a lot as well...

From what I've seen of WoTR it's a big step up from Kingmaker. Except the knock off Heroes 3 army combat. I've only played Kingmaker, haven't finished due to a gamebreaking bug, but WoTR looks like it improves on writing overall, function and flow of the game, and has much more replay-ability.
Foxes are nice and I too wish more games had them, but Pathfinder kitsunes are… weird. They obviously take more after the mythology with shapeshifting and whatnot and this is supported by other things they took like Kami and Youkai. Their "disguised" Human form is unmistakably Human with no odd features other than being pretty. The fox form is just a furry, which is fine if you're into that thing, but there is no in-between. What gets me is just how out of place they feel. The place they came from is literally just Japan with the mythos and everything ported over, but that's really just more of a Worldbuilding problem.

kimo...... I'm not really a fan of GTA. Personally, my favorite similar game was Saints Row 2. Good story and the gameplay and world was more of a sandbox whereas GTA is oddly grounded in realism in places, like only being able to have a few cars and then being gone for good if you destroy them. I've been playing a lot of GTA V recently because I like the driving, but the world feels so empty and dead; there's barely any buildings you can actually go into (Something SR2 really excelled at) so the driving feels almost pointless because there's no where to actually go. Saints Row 2 had an underground mall, an underground city, a massive sewer system that lead to a hidden government facility, a prison, a museum, a cave tour, a court house, houses that you can buy and upgrade, and many, many other locations. GTA V has... A few stores? Cribs?

But... Well... The Saints Row developer is dead and closed down, and the IP is probably super dead after the last one was major flop; It's not like anyone would really want it after the tonal shift that completely severed the first two games somewhat grounded realism from the third where there's a literal flying aircraft carrier and the fourth where you become the president or something? Apparently there were Saints Row 1 and 2 remakes in the works, but those are now super dead too.

I just really hope that GTA VI focuses more on building interiors that you can actually explore, but if Cyberpunk 2077 is anything to go off of... Apparently it's not something AAA studios really care about. I feel like this is one of the real downsides to huge developer teams. There's just so much being worked on that there's really no signs of personal touches or love like the sort of stuff that an individual in a smaller team could get away with adding. Sure, Red Dead II had shrinking horse balls or whatever, but I'll take one actually interesting location over a hundred stupid details that no one is going to miss. And that's sort of my point... Because the teams are so big, the only cutesy things that make it in are the sorts of things that literally no one is going to catch. One of the developers for Saints Row 2 literally worked in secret to make a zombie survival mode that was discovered late into development so they decided to keep it. I really can't see the same thing coming out of current Rockstar which for the last decade has seemed to care more about milking 12 year olds for GTA V Online cosmetics and their literal casino than it does on making anything truly unique. GTA V honestly just feels kind of samey and boring after the story ends.

I'm sure GTA VI will launch to much acclaim and so on and so on, but I just can't help but feel unexcited about it.

I'm hooked on world again. What a game, absolutely filled to the brim with soul. It's really nice to see so many people still playing it today. Right now I'm trying to learn CB and it's a very complex weapon. I feel like there's so many things to keep track of (charging sword/shield, morphing, guardpoint) It's cool though and very satisfying to use.

Also tomorrow is the TGAs and there is a very small chance of a new Monster Hunter game being revealed. From what I understand the World team has been working on a new Monhun for a bit and it was leaked to release in 2024. This makes sense because Sunbreak had their final update a couple months ago.

Well, World was really polarizing in many areas. Thinking about it now, it obviously has a lot of flaws... but the gameplay still feels extremely satisfying. It feels like one of the few games I can fire up and just enjoy nowadays. Also the multiplayer system is really good and I think it's one of the main reasons why so many people are playing it today.

I said somewhere on here (maybe this thread) that I plan to replay World sometime soon and I agree wholeheartedly with your appreciation for it. I played a lot of it multiplayer and unfortunately you end up rushing through a lot of stuff that way, so I need to do it solo and take my time and do all the extra fluff stuff like taking pictures of things for one of the NPCs. I did still do some stuff back then like chase after endemic life to decorate the private room area, which was another amazing highlight. You've been able to do simple stuff like that before in MH (I remember wall decorations or something in Tri which was my first MH game) but it really took on a new grandiose form in World. Someone made a mod that allowed you to place NPCs in your room, but it was annoying to set up because you needed coordinates that weren't very natural at all to get, so I never did it. Just hanging out in that room with the default soothing music playing was really relaxing and I kind of want someone to make a VR world with this stuff. (although I don't have any VR equipment)

The visuals were absolutely stunning and although gameplay is more important, I really did feel the downgrade with Rise. Seeing my old favorites like Zinogre in HD was amazing and the environments were so atmospheric. It's really one of the major highlights in recent gaming when it comes to amazing visuals (and not simple boring realism).
The main complaints people have about it is that they leaned in a bit too hard in pandering to Western sensibilities with the dumb Handler stuff and slow walking escort "experiences". Also, of course the much-maligned multiplayer quest setup where you couldn't join a hunt from the beginning the first time someone saw a monster so you'd have to wait 5 minutes for them to enter and watch a cutscene first. Its early poor response was due to a horrendous PC performance, but luckily I saw that ahead of time and just delayed buying it until it was fixed.

Yeah, I want another 'World' really badly.

An example of the fun and impressive fluff of MHW; it's my character sitting on a bed hitting a button to pet one of the penguin animals I placed in the room. No one would buy a Monster Hunter game for this, but it's there. Plus you can just sit and watch NPCs walk around in town and it's really intresting, and also very cute and amusing with the palicoes. Rise was great in this way, too. It really gives it a very "real" feeling of a world. Capcom is truly the last great video game giant.

I don't get all the immediate backlash to it... Everyone thought world was going to be bad for shaking things up a bit and look how that turned out, just fine. I think an open world version of monhun could be really fun if they put more emphasis on actually hunting the monsters and allow for more dangerous encounters early on that you'd be wayyy too outclassed to beat and need to run away from. Imagine you're hunting a Great Wroggi or something and then a deviljho suddenly comes out to look for food. I think it could be great depending on how much they're willing to take advantage of it.

Doom's one of those games I've always kind of wished I'd gotten more into than I did. It does a lot of things that look super cool to me, but I'm just plain not very good with first person games. The idea that there's something potentially gameplay relevant outside my field of view gives me this really uneasy, claustrophobic feel, and it leads to me panicking every time anything goes wrong.

I'm jealous of my imoto, because she takes a lot more naturally to that sort of thing than I do.

Every MH since World is open world if you ask me. Each map used to have 8-16 or tiny screens in it, each with a loading screen. A monster hit that sends you flying could send you into another loading zone, and of course you couldn't see the monster unless you were in the same zone. (Paintball marking is a story for another day). It was something you got used to eventually, but it never stopped being annoying. This is probably the main thing preventing me from replaying the old games... I really don't want to deal with it again.

I guess compared to the old maps the new MH are open world, but it's not really. When I say open world in reference to MH I'm thinking more like a SotC kind of world where you go out to hunt giant monsters. Although I guess with a bit more life in the world and other usual MH stuff.

I finished setting up all the mods and Reshade and stuff for MHW and it looks quite nice, although I still want to tinker more with Reshade. I must also resist the urge to lose myself in modding again by opening blender and going down that rabbit hole.
But, somehow ICE or Reshade itself is causing something very strange. I have a local stable diffusion thing for AI and I noticed it starting having some sort of weird CUDA memory errors. The only solution I could find was reinstalling drivers. Then I ran MHW again and MHW itself crashed and then the same CUDA memory thing happened with SD until I reinstalled drivers again. Well, this sucks. Maybe it's the injector work around that someone made for MHW because of Capcom's overzealous anti-hack stuff (that doesn't even work against actual pirates).

Don't necessarily need laser turrets. Flamer turrets are pretty good and are practically free defense with just crude oil. Slap some of them onto your pump outpost and consider it defended.

From my understanding it's an extremely low budget game designed with "pokemon but guns" as its core. The gameplay itself is peak normal bait, pokemon/ark/forkknife and has enough pandering and controversy to draw attention. If you believe the story, the development is a meme as well. Ignoring tinfoil hat shit about its popularity, it is the perfect storm of meme material, decent enough gameplay, cheap (and basically free for microsoft gamepass) cost, available on platforms almost everyone uses, and an all time high of dissatisfaction towards gamefreak's handling of pokemon that you got something viral. Pokemon simply loses out because it's expensive as all hell including requiring you to buy the game twice for all content, and requires a switch to play which is also not cheap. It is much easier to forgive bugs and poor performance for these dudes who for all intents and purposes made this game in a garage, as opposed to gamefreak who is sitting on one of the most profitable IPs in history and still churns out dogshit games.
For me I tried it to see what all the fuss is about. It's not for me and I refunded but I see the appeal.

I don't understand why people are pushing it as a Pokemon ripoff. There have been legitimate Pokemon ripoffs that weren't treated like this, but this isn't even a monster battler, it's Fortnight. Yet for some reason it's being touted as something that it very obviously isn't if you look past the cover art for even one second.

I guess the missing element of the generic indie survival crafting game was marketing it as a middle finger to Pokemon, but I really thought kissu was above that.

What do you mean?

>>119182
This is something I'll have to answer a few times because JRPGs are great. I'll end up remembering stuff later on and don't want to make 3 giant posts in a row or anything.

SNES:
Chrono Trigger - Though technically the DS remake has the most postgame content and a story tie-in to Chrono Cross alongside short anime FMVs
Earthbound - it's good and everyone already talks about it enough
Lufia 1 and 2 - Nice puzzles in this, and 2 has an optional special difficult dungeon called the Ancient Cave which operates like a JRPG roguelike mode before anyone knew what that was.
Bahamut Lagoon (translation patch) I never got around to playing this one, but it had a cult classic status among nerds back then
Dragon Warrior/Quest games (if you haven't noticed a theme, you need translation patches for some of these) of course, but like Chrono Trigger you may want to play some re-releases/remakes. Until about 8 or so they were localized as Dragon Warrior and not Quest.
Breath of Fire 1 and 2 - Don't have much to say. They're good.

Playstation:
Chrono Cross - Kind of related to Chrono Trigger, but not really. Still an amazing game with one of the best soundtracks ever and the graphics were truly phenomenal at the time and you'd think it was a PS2 game.
Xenogears - fantastic story, music and characters. Could have been the perfect game if they didn't run out of time/money and turn Disk 2 into a quasi-VN. (I do love VNs but you know). It's still something everyone that enjoys the genre should play. This was actually going to be a Chrono Trigger sequel but at some point became its own separate thing. (Luca still teaches you about savepoints). It has similarities to Evangelion, but they were both developed at the same time. If you play game in this post make it this one. . It might not have the same effect on people as it did back then, but it really was quite an experience!
Lunar: Silver Star Story and Lunar: Eternal Blue - Originally for Sega CD, the remasters were what I originally played. In hindsight people hate the localization for adding a bunch of random real life humor with dated references, but I'm not sure if there's any restoration patch or anything. The main story is still serious and good. They're nice adventures centered on love and companionship, particularly the second one (Eternal Blue). Silver Star Story has been remade like 5 times but Eternal Blue not even once, so there must be some weird licensing thing going on.
Grandia 1 and 2 - A truly great sense of adventure and it's very relaxing and enjoyable. Shares some staff with Lunar. Grandia 2 isn't appreciated as much, but it's okay.

Uhh... I'll write more later because I'm sure I've forgotten SNES stuff and the Playstation list has only just started and there's other systems. I don't know how I'm going to remember all the DS stuff...

Writing and humor were a bit too edgy/nihilistic, but I enjoyed it and want to see how the story ends. Still kind of a guilty pleasure and probably not something I would let other people know I played/liked.

I like the trailer's overly dramatic engrish. I think the first part says "Command your troops and obliterate your enemies", but not sure if it's "obliterate" or something else. The announcer also pronounces "grimoire" really funny.

Palworld server operator, there was an update so the server needs to be restarted. I'm pretty sure I'm the only one on there anyway so if nobody objects and you need to shut it down go ahead. Just don't delete the world it has potential for future updates.

I wonder what the most fun exercise-related games are now. I could go for something to try and regain some of my lost energy levels. The last one I played and kind of enjoyed was Wii Fit, but it was quite repetitive. The 'Wii Balance Board' was a really neat thing and it's a shame it really wasn't supported by much, but that's kind of what you expect with Nintendo gimmicks.
The Ring Fit thing doesn't seem particularly fun, but maybe it is? I know there's some VR stuff like Beat Saber or something, but VR is something I'm still waiting to buy into.
Does anyone here play any fitness-oriented games?
