I got out my vita after not having used it in a long time. I'd forgotten just how great of a little console it is. I'm currently playing through Utawarerumomo: Prelude to the Fallen (Please no spoilers :< ). It's nice. So far I've been playing through on hard, but it's really not that difficult. Must be adjusted difficulty for the people who just want the story I suppose.
Been really into OSRS again lately. Having lots of fun grinding out levels.
Been playing Smackdown Here Comes the Pain on my PS2 emulator! It's my favorite era of wrestling plus the controls are really easy to master!
Also been playing skyrim modded, but I haven't gotten really far into it.
And playing minecraft. 1.12.2 modded, with like a bunch of random mods.
I got my vita 1000 yesterday and hacked it. I have been mostly been playing homebrew such as SMBX, emulators and stuff like that. I've also played regular vita games such as Neptunia;Rebirth 2, LittleBigPlanet Vita and an old version of Vita Minecraft
Cool. I tried looking at Vita homebrew stuff before but the vita homebrew browser always seemed to crash on me. It would've been nice to try out Quake or the other ports on there. Now that I think about, I think there might've been Higurashi too. Hmm, I guess I'll check and see if it's functioning.
ugh I hate it when they do that stuff in games. Makes it all but necessary to read a guide.
i've been trying to beat touhou 18.5 but it got too difficult for me
>>95628> I'm currently playing through Utawarerumomo: Prelude to the Fallen
Very good! Yeah, it's really easy. 2 and 3 will offer more challenge and far greater gameplay variety. >>95637>SMBX
Is this it? https://wololo.net/2021/08/30/ps-vita-release-thextech-super-mario-bros-x/
Been doing no death runs of Pikmin 3 recently.
keep looking at that ashes of creation game and sigh it's getting me hopeful for mmos again but i don't want to feel disappointed if it fails sigh
I wish utawarerumono had autosaves. Yestersay while I was playing my game crashed ;_;
visual novel is a subgenre of games which have that user interface when telling stories
But what if it crashed when it was autosaving?
Autosaving is a mixed bag to me generally in games that support manual saving. I like having control and knowledge of when the saving happens.
You're the guy reading the first one, right? Its vita remaster?
Been playing a lot of Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance Forever lately with some /qa/ friends and it's a pretty fun game, but a lot of us have no idea of how to approach the endgame because for the most part in the small skirmishes we play together there's never really a time where the games last long enough to get to where everyone is making the super cool endgame units. So I was wondering if there'd ever be a time that /qa/ would be up for a few big game sessions of supcom where we all try and play on a huge map that allows for these endgame situations, and if so is there any time that'd be good?
Also for anyone interested there's some videos out on the internet that can give you a pretty basic understanding of how to get decent enough at the game to play and not immediately die.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6uE1-xS2uk
the pissu game...
Is there a special scene if you select that option...
Yeah. I've been moving so I haven't had the chance to play recently, but I'll try some more soon. Anyways, I think what you're describing is something that's already been solved. In games that allow manual saving, often times they'll also have autosaves but the autosaves won't overwrite manual saves. If you get softlocked because of a bad autosave you can just reload a manual save. I think even poor or infrequent autosaves would be far preferable to losing an hour of progress because of game crashes.
Sadly, no. It's even one of those cliche "okay you chose the funny option, now choose the real one" non-choices where you need to select the bottom one to advance.
Still, it's nice that it existed at all and had a few lines.
Unfortunately Share-X (what I use for screenshots) has crashed twice now when I take a screenshot of the game so I'll have to find another way to take screenshots.
I've been playing a lot of ryona recently. I "beat" Wolf's Dungeon (not exactly as there is no more content for now) and it was pretty good though bullshit hard at times. Here's the link https://ux.getuploader.com/eluku/download/330
if anyone is interested, password is eluku
I really ought to get a handheld and give VN another go.
I just don't have what it takes to sit through them on my PC most of the time.
Yep, I know exactly how you feel. You just can't beat reading a VN in bed. Not just for comfort, but the computer has loads of other stuff on it that could distract you from your escapism.
playing some Snuggle With Your Cat Simulator
Really liking the MiA game so far. But, I'm not sure how many other people would. It's quite slow paced and besides exploration you also need to maintain various things. You have hunger that steadily increases and transitioning areas takes a chunk of it. Tools like rope are consumable and weapons or fishing poles will break over time. There's ranged weapons, but the ingredients for arrows and bullets seem kind of extreme. You are also constrained by carry weight, as everything has weight. To gain increased rank and gold you need to bring back relics and they have weight, too, so you need to keep that in mind. There's also the curse, so you can't climb too fast, so you need to pause to recover for a few seconds. The stamina bar for running or climbing is also very low and fall damage is closer to real life than you might be used to.
It does a pretty good job of making the Abyss seem very inhospitable, though I think quite a few people will be turned off by the 'maintenance' of survival. I'm still in the first layer, but stuff is already quite punishing.
That sounds kind of tedious, like how many trips up and down do you have to make to grind rank to get to the next layer? And you have to climb the whole distance in real time? Reminds me of climbing walls in early game BotW.
It can be tedious, I guess, but I don't mind it that much. But, the real tedium seems to be coming from quests that require you to keep returning to the same area. I'm hoping things become more varied later on. There seems to be a Quick Travel option when I open the map, but so far it keeps giving me "you can't do that now" so I'm not sure when that unlocks.
Might give this a go. Would you say being unfamiliar with manga/anime would detract from the experience? Was waiting for the manga to finish like always but who knows when that's happening.
>>96570>Would you say being unfamiliar with manga/anime would detract from the experience
It does, yes. The 'tutorial' is basically a fast track of the first season with most things excluded. After the tutorial you start a new story with a custom character.
I really can't recommend you to play it without at least watching the first season and then the movie that wasn't just a recap. From what I've heard the rest of the game is a new story, but including established characters and areas. Don't play this if you're not going to read/watch the source material.
Also, I wanted to say... good god a part of the second layer was so freaking TEDIOUS and I had to do it three times. I don't know what the hell they were thinking. It was just painful. Knowing that there was more stuff to explore kept me going through it, but that was not fun. The combat in the game is also a bit of a mess and very stiff, but again I'm not playing it for the combat but for exploring.
can't saw if it was the shipper, but been liking fedex recently... well they're both reliable where I live and i dunno if it's ever an option for preorders
oh wait, you said USPS, not UPS... yeah I don't have that wear I live.
CanadaPost is quite slow too
I just went with what amazon gave me
Just buy a new case for the game if it's important. It seems like USPS will be what they are
haven't seen a game case in forever
i pirated pokemon sword recently
nothing better to play
guess kinda fun but have spent 10 hours grinding and searching for rare encounters
also installed umineko recently but havent started it yet
I like Tekken 8, Yakuza Isshin, and the Koei Tecmo samurai game.
I'm playing Smash melee.
Her squishy thighs are too powerful
Finally got around to trying Troubleshooter: Abandoned Children, it's nice. Very slow going but that suits me fine right now.
Practice extreme skepticism, but this sounds interesting: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/rtx-remix-announcement/
Basically nvidia is further treading into modder territory, which is giving me very mixed feelings. It had already started to copy ReShade with its crappy in-game interface (which I tried a couple times but turn off every time since it's vastly inferior) and it's now trying to enter the territory of injectors like 3Dmigito or ENB.
Initially you might think "cool, more options!", but this is taking something out of the community and into nvidia.
That is, of course, if it even works on enough things. It's not going to be magical like it's advertised here, it will still take a lot of effort from modders and if you do it then you're contributing to nvidia's near-monopoly and who's to say how it will choose to exercise that power if it gets it.
i can just imagine all the graphical glitches of an AI that has no idea what it's looking at
Yeah, people have been making "AI upscaled" stuff for games the past couple years and they're not particularly great and are even ridiculed in certain less polite places. They're better than the default, sometimes, but a texture is simply part of one object in a small area that's part of a larger area that's part of a world with its own history and themes. For the time being (and years to come) an AI is not going to properly interpret a person's artistic vision for something, especially when the source is so blurry.
Procedural generated stuff has also quickly run out of fashion and is blamed for a lot of uninspired visuals in recent games. You need a person to give detail if you want something to look like it belongs in a world instead of something that came out of an assembly line. I haven't seen and don't expect it to be very popular for modding since it's not workers meeting a deadline for their job (or mass producing generic assets for sale) but people doing things as a hobby in their free time.
Gonna scold Kissu for being gamers
whaaaa? what is that?
snilly snake game
Looks kinda cool, what's it like? Is it direct mech battles or do you have missions and stuff?
Just direct mech battles, and it's free to play as well. (Just don't rank up if you want to play with friends since apparently people of different ranks can't play together, even casually)https://store.steampowered.com/app/1816670/GUNDAM_EVOLUTION/
Uhhh, not Fortnite. More like TF2
Err yeah that's what I mean. What was the name of the stuff... PUBG? And Overwatch? Stuff like that.
I think Overwatch was the TF2 clone
Yeah, I just mean it looked like the class-based team shooter genre.
Didn't finish this one. The story is way too stupid and boring and poorly written/translated in places too. The only thing that kept me playing was the combat but it's not varied enough to last an entire playthrough.
Playing xpiratez mod for classic xcom now, it's really good so far. Your crew is a bunch of half (or fully) naked mutant girls. There are some other mutants you can hire too I think. You start from stone age and the campaign is apparently 100h+.
oh damn I haven't played terraria since a month or so after v1.4 released
So it's still getting updated?
Yeah, but it's not supposed to be as you probably know. 1.4 was the "final content update" but they just can't help themselves.
In addition to some really cool fixes and new stuff (like a new coral furniture set which is perfect for me), there are two new world seeds!
Man, it's amazing that they're still making stuff like this.
WE NEED A KISSU TERRARIA SERVER IN A FEW WEEKS!
I'd definitely be up for playing the zenith seed sometime in the future.
Im sure there'll be good ones, as I was unimpressed by SWSH's early releases but I liked some of them like the ghosts, alcremie the fossils etc
but so far they look like fakemons and some of the names are bad
These feel like fakemon
Personally I think Europe is also not that great for pokemon settings, as the biodiversity just isnt there (Giant insects? apes? Giant constrictor snakes? In the United Kingdom?), it's such a tease too as this one is set in the Hispanophone world when a lot of the aforementioned things would be more fitting in a region set in like a pokemon version of Costa Rica.
Central and South America, Namibia/South Africa, South and Southeast Asia (and it would never happen but also China) and Australia would probably produce better pokes than another Euro one.
But I like the starters!
heh he looks like sperm
I was looking at some old MMOs I used to play after hearing about EQ2 again.
Ragnarok Online is still going, although the company is trying its best to kill it and has threatened to sue many servers
Maplestory had a bit of a resurgence on retail of all places
Silk Road Online is completely dead outside of private servers, and I'm surprised people still play it at all when BDO feels like the modern version of that game, down to botting being allowed although the most popular service is low-rate and disallows botting
FFXI is still played and has actually gotten a fair amount of attention from the devs to give it modern quality of life
I'm surprised that these games are still fairly alive, FFXI and SRO are the ones I'm most curious about really but I'm a friendless autist so my anime and single-player video game backlog is more important right now
Also I didn't play EQ2 both because it would hurt my personal growth due to the time commitment and also US$15 a month is too much for basically a private server (everyone is playing their version of WoW classic), you could get like a 1000 hour+ classic like AOE2 remastered (which is another game I'm looking at, even though I'm dumb but RTS games could help make me smarter)
>>98359>I also can't believe I'm just figuring out now how close Link was to having a harem.
happened to me too when I went back and replayed that game as an adult. Also made me disappointed you couldn't actually marry the fish girl.
I never understood how he was bruteforced into getting older, when it was implied that the Kokiri never became "adults".
Zelda is very /ss/y
3d zelda is one of those games like Rune Factory that desperately needs h-scenes
There's a ton of doujin ones out there if that's your thing.
Any of them with good gameplay?
Not games, 3DCGI h-scenes. There's even a bunch of futa ones with crossdressing Link.

My poor old wallet.
i think it's best framed not in terms of currency exchange but in terms of what that money can buy
as in, how many sandwiches is it worth?
in my case, for the minimal cost of ARS$ 3.899, i can buy... about six sandwiches
(the real exchange rate is 300 ars per dollar, just in case)
That's a lot of sandwiches >_>
Heh. I remember people trash talking 4 back then because
it was happy. "It's going to kill SMT!"
It really did notably create a split in the IP and the fanbases, though, with dancing and mystery dungeon games on one side and SMT "purists" on the other.
As long as they keep making "mainline" SMT games I'm happy.
I played Age of Wonders III, it's terrible.
Also, I figured this out during my under 5 hour speedrun of the game, but you don't even need to beat hornet sentinel to actually beat the game.
I only really like Makoto's oshiri, but yeah P4 is better
Online fanbases love fearmongering how things are going to be "killed" or are "dying".
SMT purists are easy to rile up though, I remember one getting indignant with me over saying I liked the series when I had only played Devil Survivor
It depends on the artist, it just looks dumpy on some
Literally, or implied?
please do not sex the mewkles
This mewkle is female.
mewkles are pure sex
Playing Metal Hellsinger, I can get with it a lot better than with BPM, but I still SUCK at rhythm games.
Sexed animals are worth more
starting the 'beat up the perverts' game
this guy instantly lost
Played a bit more Utawarerumono. I'm not sure who it is exactly since they weren't revealed, but one character sounds a whole lot like Char from Gundam...
Played a lot more Utawarerumono. My ears did not deceive me. Dii is voiced by the same voice actor as Char.
And on the gamecube theme I was thinking of playing Eternal Darkness for Halloween!
I had a lot of games for the gamecube that became rare, I wish I took better care of these things, but it's no big deal because Dolphin is such a better experience.
Also,Peach's relationship with TEC kinda confirms the theory she plays both Mario and BowserGrodus surviving being obliterated by the Shadow Queen made the climax less cool
Bowser being a joke in the beginning but then being bad ass when things get serious is perfect.
Why can Yoshi-kid talk when none of the other members of the species can?And in the epilogue, Vivian shouldn't have returned to his sisters after presumably an eternity of being treated like trash. Goombella shouldn't have had the implied crush on Mario, it should've been on another party member. Vivian was enough.
I dont have much to add, I'm surprisingly moved for a 20 hour nintendo rpg, Mario RPGs have unexpectedly vibrant worldbuilding and I heard Origami King is a step in the right direction. I hope for the twentieth anniversary they do a "where are they now" manga or something.
Beat Utawarerumono. What an unsatisfying end... Hearing Aruruu cry was though...
Is it trying to make me hate this series?
so those /secret/ guys were right after all huh...
would you stop it with that. you're gross.
Ohhh, are you the guy that was reading the first one? Yes! You've entered the world of Kuon! Wasn't that intro scene nice?
The combat is a lot more fun than the first one because they distinguished the characters a lot more and you'll end up using a variety of them for different things. There's quite a few special mechanics that I've never seen in strategy games that were really nice. Throughout the game I would think "I wish Disgaea and other games played like this".
They also increased the difficulty in hard mode which makes it a lot more enjoyable, and a quite a few times you'll even be frustrated!
Ohh, you're so lucky to experience it for the first time.
>>98811>are you the guy that was reading the first one?
Mhm. I liked it a lot, but the ending felt like it came out of nowhere and was fairly unsatisfying at that. If it weren't for the fact there are sequels, I think that would taint my impression much more so.>Wasn't that intro scene nice?
The video, or do you mean the intro part where Haku gets chased around by a giant bug? I thought the video was surprisingly well done. The intro... I'm not sure how to feel about yet since I haven't seen anything past the part where Haku is reunited with Kuon and getting dressed. My first impressions though are that I'm not very fond of the protagonist. Again, just from first impressions they seem much more out-going and rash, which is quite different from Hakuowlo. I guess I'll have to see if I warm up to him.>The combat is a lot more fun than the first one because they distinguished the characters a lot more>They also increased the difficulty in hard mode
Oh, that's nice to hear. I actually decided to go with normal because the combat of the previous game was kind of draining with having to do training to make sure all of my characters were leveled up and had good stats. Hmm... Maybe I'll change my mind if it seems too easy. But if its too grindy... Hmm... Are there any bonuses for playing on hard?
Now that I'm running windows I'm curious to try VNs again, I was looking at trying this but I heard it was a nakige so I'm a bit reluctant at this moment in time.
I think I'll do Tsukihime or School Days first.
I just meant the general intro scene of Kuon's face close-up looking over "you". It's something reminiscent of the first one which was a nice touch. >My first impressions though are that I'm not very fond of the protagonist.
Well, he's a normal guy. Cowardly, weak, lazy. I think you'll start to like him. >Are there any bonuses for playing on hard?
I can't remember. If there is, it would just be related to combat and not change any scenes or story. >>98859
It's very emotional, but I think it's a disservice to give it a simple label like that. There's SoL, war, politics and other stuff that set it apart. And Kuon.
Also there's specifically a VN thread if you're interested in that kind of thing >>95318
>>98861>I just meant the general intro scene of Kuon's face close-up looking over "you".
Oh, that completely slipped my mind with how quickly everything was progressing.
I played "Hot Dog King" or "Fast Food Empire" for a laugh and it felt like an H-game without the H.
looks like a good concept for a brothel-sim
Anyone want to play some OJ?
Also Vermintide 2 is free to keep https://store.steampowered.com/app/552500/Warhammer_Vermintide_2/
I hope we can start playing semi-regularly again, that was pretty fun., but please god no more island maps.
Also we should probably see if we can get a Terraria server going soon, or maybe Minecraft?
Noticed something really annoying... In Utawarerumono I liked to leave the game on auto mode so I didn't have to constantly press the next button, but in Mask of Deception the Auto Mode doesn't work properly because the screen times out and causes my Vita to sleep...
Forgot to link it since it's out:https://store.steampowered.com/app/1962430/Monochrome_Mobius_Rights_and_Wrongs_Forgotten/
Buy 20 copies, at least. If we could get a few people here to buy a few million copies each I think we could get some more Utawarerumono games in development, so you could do that, too.
It's a JRPG prequel to Utwarerumono, specifically 2 and 3 I think since it's happening in Yamato. I still do not understand why it did not include the name. Is it to encourage non-VN readers from playing it or to otherwise attract new people? I doubt it's going to rely on knowledge of 2 and 3, but it will offer you a better experience if you have it. Anyway...
Somehow Nekone's voice is even cuter. Yeah, she's younger, but it's the same voice actress so it's really impressive that she managed to do that. The 3D looks pretty good, but not amazing. Too early to comment on the battles, but the exploration is pretty okay. There are gathering points and an item category of "Materials" so that sounds nice, I'm a total sucker for gathering and crafting. It instantly makes a game better to me.
I can already feel the Utawarerumono spirit in writing like pic related 30 minutes into the game as calming music plays. Don't let me down, Aquaplus. Your exploration and celebration of emotion is a beacon upon the industry.
Harvest Moon made me feel sad
>>99712>giving her 10,000 gifts, you need to litter a bunch, pass out 100 times, oh, and kill 50 of your animals from neglect.
This sounds like one of those urban legend things your schoolmates would tell you and would not believe
I've been fucking around with some Pokemon ROMhacks.
As a follow-up to this, Do NOT start this as your first Utawarerumono game
. If you don't know the major story events of the other ones (or the anime) you're going to be spoiled.
gonna start playing dofus again
I looked way too deep into Mother 2 after playing it for the second time especially after being aware of the plot of the third and got themes of existentialism, the goods and ills of spiritualism, technology warping society, lost innocence etc.
Do you think messages in media that are interpreted by the viewer that aren't of the creators intent are valid?
Diablo clones are the only games that routinely leave me sore.
what is engie doing there lmao
I feel really bad for the people who had to work on those games. They really did just need another year or even month in the oven. There's nothing fundamentally wrong with them, they're just really unpolished.
This one feels too mean to me. It's probably because it's Western though (at least, it looks Western. I'd be surprised if it wasn't). For whatever reason, when Westerners poke fun at things, most of the time it feels a bit too personal and rude. Maybe it's just me though.
I haven't encountered anything crazy yet, although I did notice at the academy that people tend to flicker a bit when there's alot of them around.
I'm pretty sure it's because of vid related and similar things.
I'm not sure why you guys think the Western one is mean. It looks like it's either mimicking, or is actually from, that one /fit/ draw guy named 'sir' that did/does the New Year's comic for them
I dunno. I'm probably just seeing things. It just feels like there's this extra bit of spite there that's not present in the Japanese example.
It's more because western artist think reference = funny
Hmm, maybe it's the style. The faces are quite intense with lots of > < eyebrows so you might perceive it as angry.
Anyway, here's one of sir's comics made for /fit/ which it reminded me of: https://desu-usergeneratedcontent.xyz/fit/image/1483/24/1483242762425.jpg
I don't think it's mean, but it has a juvenile style to it that could be perceived as harsh, but I think it's just cartoony.
I'm strongly considering getting Project Diva on Steam since it's on sale for the autumn sale. (Also there's an Steam autumn sale going on)https://store.steampowered.com/app/1761390/Hatsune_Miku_Project_DIVA_Mega_Mix/
Over 170 songs and there's a modding community of people that have added songs from other Miku games into it as well as new songs entirely such as from newer artists like PinnochioP, but don't get too excited since I assume it's just the overlay on top of the pre-existing music video if not a static image. Still, very cool! Also people mod the outfits and models and stuff as you'd expect.
Sadly, from what I've heard there's no options to hang out with the vocaloids in their rooms. That was such a hugely charming part of the games and it's a huge disappointment that it's not there.
Gamebanana sure has a... unique layout https://gamebanana.com/games/16522
Been playing Slay the Spire here and there, and now that I've finally beaten a run with the Defect I think I'm getting the hang of it. It was a peculiar run.
Basically, the character I was playing revolves around "orbs", little summons with different effects that you can trigger and manipulate in a number of ways. But because I drew Hyperbeam early on, a very strong AoE with the drawback of considerably weakening your orbs, I decided to go full aggro, ignoring most of the orb cards entirely, and tried to blitz through every fight. Halfway through I finally started removing cards from my deck and skipping over unnecessary pickups, and ended up with a very consistent inventory.
By default, you start each turn with 3 energy. If you pick up some special relics, you can raise this to 5 or 6. I was routinely reaching ~18 energy per turn, while cycling through my entire deck like it was nobody's business. Of my 28 cards, 9 were about obtaining cards in some way, 7 manipulated energy, and only 3 were my heavy hitters. (Thank God I kept Meteor Strike.)
I had no buffs other than Buffer for defense, which is pretty weird for a Defect run. Even removed Creative AI, which is a really powerful card, but having it would've decreased consistency. Relics weren't anything amazing, though the extra energy from Philosopher's Stone, healing from Bloody Idol, and the ocassional draw from Pocketwatch were great.
I dont know if im just a perv but pokemon has very /ss/y dialogue
I'm interested to know how much of it there is. And what if you're playing a girl?
The last two were yuri generations...
IGN Armored Core 6 interview with Miyazaki and Yamamurahttps://www.ign.com/articles/armored-core-6-interview
This was a much needed interview, even though a lot of the questions are just plain stupid atleast we have the big confirmation: AC6 its not a soulslike. This is a huge relief to me as the last thing I wanted was a mecha souls larping as an Armored Core game. AC6 is a product of Miyazaki and Yamamura, and it seems Yamamura is leading the way now. This is interesting news because the last game Yamamura worked on was one of their best. (Sekiro) Also the last Armored Core game Miyazaki was involved in was For Answer, and while being a masterpiece in some ways, it also had awful technical issues. Miyazaki says that he feels "jealous" of the guys working on AC now, because when he was working on AC4/FA there were so many restrictions and the teams were less experienced with new hardware. Now this has all changed and we're going to see the first Armored Core release with a more experienced, more resourced From Software. Very happy to hear this. It sounds like they want to stay as true to the formula of Armored Core as possible while also introducing some new mechanics. Can't wait to see gameplay footage whenever they're ready.
It's kinda depressing how most of the interviewer's questions are about how stuff from previous souls games they worked on will be incorporated into 6 as if it's also a souls game. Though I guess it's true that it's all they've basically worked on since their success with the original DaS, so maybe most people think AC6 will be like those games, especially younger people who never played the PS1-2 era games.
I'm glad it sounds like in that interview they're resolute in keeping it's distinct gameplay, I'm really excited.
I ended up buying a PS2 instead of a new xbox lol
Much better decision
So what are you playing? The last PS2 game I played was Extermination.
Dark Cloud, Dynasty Warriors and a Disgaea game. Im looking at setting up ps2smb so I can play expensive games like MS Saga and Chulip
I remember playing the demo for Dark Cloud when I got my first PS2. I had no idea what I was supposed to do and I just ran around and hit things until my dagger broke.
I just started playing osu! recently. Having a lot of fun FCing maps at my own pace, and the music selection is really nice too
Found an old DS flash cart of mine I must have ordered many years ago, but for whatever reason never used. According to its label, it should have been an R4i cart, but it was actually a DSTT and they were using some faux R4 skin for it. Very strange.
Anyways, it's suuuper slow. I guess I'll stick with my DStwo Plus. It's a pretty neat flash cart with its own SOC. Unfortunately, it experiences slowdowns for GBA games, which is a shame since the 3DS and DS can do full-speed GBA emulation.
I've been replaying Um Jammer Lammy for PS1 and it makes me remember why I love the Parappa games so much. The music is good, the art style is pretty neat and I like the characters. It really makes me wish there was more games of it. I personally perfer Lammy because of how the gameplay feels and its content but other games are great also
I have been playing Fallout 2, I always found it weird OG fallout never really got that much love among hardcore PC gamers like HoMM, Planescape Torment etc, it has its hardcore fans but the majority of gamers see Fallout as an FPS.
Anyway, it's a weird mix of a 90s PC game and TTRPG, where you ragequit it because of RNG but boot it up 5 minutes later and keep playing for hours. I'm in the mid-game, but it feels like there's many themes of haves and have-nots but also not making a point or even being allegorical about it (although I think the enclave are obviously a reference to white supremacists), it seems to just present it being as it is. Fallout 2 was also a pioneer in popularizing post nuclear-war media that doesn't push nuclear pessimism.
I am playing a melee/unarmed character because I think it's more fitting for the Chosen One being a tribal, than just being proficient in small arms from the get-go, but I semi-roleplay in games like this. The main issue with melee is your companions shooting you.
It's also much more lewd than I remember it, some of it feels like a western h-game without the h-scenes, down to the settlements catering to different fetishes (New Reno is sluts, Vault City is femdom, Broken Hills is monster etc)
Also Marcus sucks
Yeah, it's a real shame that nowadays classic fallouts are completely overshadowed by the newer games. Still, before fallout 3 came out, the originals were pretty popular. I remember that in the past, there were a lot of fansites and forums about classic fallouts Sadly it's almost all gone now. >>102496
give him a plasma rifle
It's weird to me that pokemon fans are into the new pokemon, that despite all their grumbling and complaining they still bought it and are dumping hundreds of hours into multiplayer
I always get filtered by the early game in Fallout 2.
I didn't have this problem with Fallout 1.
For a series as nuanced as Fallout, the enclave being cartoonishly evil kinda broke the immersion for me, especially when even the Master's Army had an understandable point of view. I know they were humanized a bit in FNV but they feel like a caricature, especially in a game/world where you could be a child killing slaver and some people accept that as "totally badass".
The best fallout game is that HOI4 mod in my opinion; I wish they would make books.
Turning on always run and turning the combat speed to maximum help.
Also, their ideology made me look into the topic of genetic discrimination which is surprisingly a real thing.
Also one last thing because I just finished it and dont want to come off like I hated it. I like how playing it like you would a modern RPG as an almost messianic figure instead ends up being a mixed blessing or even having terrible unforeseen consequences. (Like how Optimizing the power plant in Gecko causes Vault City to invade it rather than the town to flourish)
Also, with how extremist fictional factions are popular, Vault City almost gets no love when it does the exact thing people like the Legion for but better. Probably because Lynette is so unlikeable.
It was a good game, but draining physically and emotionally. It's one of those "every couple of years" type games.
honestly tempted to start supporting jp media
i have a j*b now i dont need to be stingy any more
kinda felt bad when i realized as a teen that every game i ever nagged my parents about in childhood cost them 60 dollars each
Dont do it through steam though
I don't think it's aquaplus is it? Alicesoft games are translated through a secondary publisher
Aquaplus sounds like they make toiletries
Well, yeah, I mean pay for people to do it, yeah. Utawarerumono Zan 2 (which is a musou of Uta 3) was never translated by whoever it was that was going to do it, I think Nippon Ichi? The first Zan game, which is a musou version of Uta 2, was indeed translated.
Both the games are stuck on PS4 which has no emulation. Aquaplus why do you do this...
Well, "portable", yeah. I've actually been seeding Persona 3 FES for the past few months because the Steam announcement got people interested in the better version.
I can't remember all the differences, but...
To clarify, FES is sort of a weird expansion-pack combo release version of the game that had a dungeon epilogue thing. It also changed the main game of 3, but I can't remember the specifics. You don't need to beat the game to FES dungeon, so you could play either one and then move onto it. I didn't like it much, too much grind and BS enemy gimmicks. There's some story there, but ehhh... people have conflicting thoughts on it.
-3 has 3D characters moving around at its locatiosn whereas Portable is purely menus. This matters more than you'd think it would. It's nice to have characters using body language and moving around in 3D space as you read their dialogue alongside the portraits.
-Portable has the female MC route, but I was never interested in that one (I don't want to date guys...)
-Original 3 doesn't let you control your party members, but I don't know which of FES/Portable has that (maybe both changed the main story?). It's easy to hate your party making dumb decisions, but some people including myself think it adds to the charm. I remember it also having story integration in some ways such as (very minor spoiler) a character growing closer to you will start healing you more
, and also that the game was balanced around that randomness so controlling your team makes it too easy.
I'd emulate 3 or FES, personally.
hello fellow arena fps fan! i like them a lot as well, but yeah the genre as a whole is pretty dead. sadly the generations after the senpai shooter craze got into lame games with .1 second time to kill like cod, and now theyre into even lamer games with .1 second time to kill after hiding in a gigantic map for 15 minutes like fortnite and all the battle royale clones. have you ever played tf2? its not quite the same and there are no perfect replicas for most of the weapons, but it fills the itch to have movement based fights with that style of weapon more than playing with the same 5 people in quake live does for me.
going to use this term from now on
What about Halo, Overwatch and Escape from Tarkov? They are popular arena shooters.
love to play tard shooters
Signalis was probably one of the best games of last year, surprisingly well done survival horror for the modern era.
Really nice soundtrack too.
The boss theme is a certified banger. 100% gets me into the moodhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItxWMuW3jQg>>98548
Takemi is 10/10, Hifumi is 10/10, Makoto is 10/10
In fact Inaba is straight up the most offensively worst girl out of all of them
sad thread, just sad.
oh my god
please tell me this is some classic kissu troll
Halo's dead and Overwatch has the DICE shooter problem where both the weapons feel like they have no impact and like you're not actively affecting anything in the game. At least in twitch shooters it's still satisfying to kill people
Halo is arguable depending on which one... Although yeah, some people may not be so familiar with what arena shooters are to understand why that statement was so wrong...
None of you are talking about games you're playing. Start talking about games.
I started replaying Shining Resonance:Refrain on Switch because I don't want to buy anything and there's a mode where you can have other characters with you and you were supposed to clear the regular game first. Well, it's been about 9 months so I think it's time to do that mode, and this time I'll do more of the optional content.
Still? Crazy how long games want to stay in EA. Although it was fun the last time I tried playing (got filtered too) so at least it's developing in a positive way.
Anyone play Sims 4? Thinking about using it for sharing houses with friends.
I've played 4 somewhat. I like 2 and 3 more... but if you're just building houses it should be fine
Xonotic has glowy alien guns, like Halo
Been playing mario 1 snes remake because I like the RPGs.
played xonotic once and some nice players tried to teach me how to duel but i quit a few days later...
I bought an aftermarket replacement battery for my psp since the original bloated.
It's extra thick and came with a special battery cover!
Anyway I'm so happy to see my psp boot up again.
I wish valve would just sell TF2 to a game dev that actually cares already, It's one of the last shooters of its kind that's still played and deserves basic maintenance
I have hope that the leak of most of the source and assets just creates an open source clone
The TF2 community is full of schizos
can't say I've had the honor of speaking to any of them
Yeah it very much is. Reading the TF2 threads on 4ch /vm/ and /bant/ is pretty painful because of the people those threads attract. It smells of people trying to hard to fit in I feel. The kind of people that try too hard to be edgy and bring "them" up every 12 seconds even if its not related to the topic at hand and don't forget the large amount of 'jak posters
Well yeah fair enough. I enjoy the game quite a bit and there are community servers I find fun. The only thing I dislike about some of the newer community servers is that they seem to copy Uncletopia (No random crits, no bullet spread), I liked when I some servers ran wackier stuff back then
I was talking more about the people who develop for it as a hobby
probably my fault for spraying hentai on the walls
>>103347>they seem to copy Uncletopia (No random crits, no bullet spread)
You forgot that one sniper who singlehandedly kills half your team.
Nice, also being able to play with analog sticks over a d-pad is helpful as well. Hence needing the "3D" controller. Glad to see someone on here enjoying NIGHTs.
Um... Does anyone know how to stop doing the main story missions once you start a chapter and go to free expeditions?
That's some pretty nice art, who drew it?
I assume it's the same artist that did the art for Gal Gun, but I'm having trouble finding anything about the person.
Oh, I was going to say those characters looked familiar. Gal Gun was pretty fun for what it was, and the dominatrix-like part was quite... interesting
no trading in Diablo4 if I read right
there's trading it just sucks
Fair warning for the purists, the NA version doesn't include the JP voicing.
Seems cool, but the ~5 minutes of practice and intro mission left me pretty sore. Guess it'll get easier with time.
You may want to increase the contrast a bit or something.>>104855
I remember when I first posted that image on 4/qa/ from futaba and saw it proliferate across 4chan. What a weird thing that was
>>104862>You may want to increase the contrast a bit or something.
It's so washed out, because I'm a tard and I took the screenshot during the fade to white.
Very nice! You even had a few lives leftover, which is pretty uncommon for a first clear. I think you'll be able to do hard fairly soon if you keep at it
Cleared IN Extra. I like how Mokou kills herself after every spellcard, really fits her thematically and also how her background is just a close-up of her dumb, smug face. Pic related. Speaking of spellcards, fuck her first spell and Fujimaya Volcano, I hate them. >>104886
I think, I will stick with normal for now. I barely managed to clear Extra, despite bombing like crazy and supposedly it is one of the easiest Extra stages.
>>105091>supposedly it is one of the easiest Extra stages
I never understood why people say this. Flandre, Ran and Suwako all feel a lot easier. Nue too if you only count the boss fight itself, but the stage is pure hell.
If you can clear Extra, then I think hard is within reach. I always consider Extra stages to be about the same difficulty as hard.
