Nice thread image, far better than the previous one since it clearly evokes games as opposed to looking like an ~aesthetic blog post.

Those who play open world games, how do you play them? Personally I do the main story first and optional side stories in replays, unless it's an RPG and I need to level up in order to comfortably continue the main story.

No. 122410

>>122406
Ideally, I would do the side quests first and main quests last. But since I don't have the time, I skip the side quests I don't like and only do a few in order to level up.

No. 122412

>>122406
play like 150+ hours of sidequests and exploring, and when i start getting bored i continue the main quest, often getting distracted and ending up doing nothing again. for some reason i don't really like replaying games, so i usually try to do everything in one savefile

No. 122414

>>122406
I tend to avoid the main story until I am satisfied with the current plot development from a character standpoint. I RP my protagonist whose starting personality and backstory I determine before playing, then do quests (main or side) that they'd be interested in and only in the ways that they might want those quests to resolve. I don't do side quests for the rewards unless there's a really cool addition to my character's story like a special weapon that works really well with their whole narrative or something like that. I don't recruit every companion, just the ones that my character either likes or feels they must work with. Stuff like that. I don't visit every zone or explore all corners of every zone. I try to completely embody my character and their interests.

I find it makes replays far more engaging since I never end up 100%ing my first playthrough and I can just keep coming back for a completely different experience.

i'm weirdly mega obsessed with collecting cute video games that I could have played as a kid but never did because i nor my parents had any clue about video games. especially the gameboy advance, because I really think I would have had a better childhood if I had one when I was like 7. I bought one and have these games. It's such a lonely experience collecting and enjoying them because nobody understands my weird hobby. I can't wait to finish the GBA and get a pink DS with cooking mama, super princess peach etc. and some kawaii decals. for some reason the obsession is only with handhelds.

I'm hoping that once I get my fill out of all of them, this obsession with old games will go away and I can just start being a normal gamer with a switch.

I just beat Astral Chain on easy mode, and now I'm doing all the chapters on normal mode. It's way more fun now that I unlocked all the legions and I'm trying to upgrade them as much as possible. It's amazing how slow and boring the game is until Jena shows up.

I also just started Xenoblade Chronicles 1 on the Switch and I don't like how you can only control one character at once and all of the characters attack bu themselves. I 'm gonna play it more and see if I change my mind, but nowadays I can't stand long games with a slow start. If I give up on that game I'll just play Katamari Damacy Reroll anyway.

In terms of good gameplay and bad writing, Destiny. What a fun game, shooting feels amazing, Vault of Glass raid is one of my favorite gaming experiences. Worst thing about writing is that groundwork clearly was there too when it comes to world building, as can be seen in grimoire cards, but you can immediately tell the story was written and put together last second.

Persona 2 Innocent Sin on the PSP has a very fun story and the characters are way more likable than the ones in P4 and especially P5, but the battles are so slow, the encounter rate is way too high and the fusion system is shit. I didn't mind the dungeons though once I managed to fuse a persona with the estoma skill. Some things like the demon negotiation system and the fusion spells were great though, I hope they can incorporate fusion spells back just like in P2 and DDS in the next Persona game. I didn't play P2 Eternal Punishment because I'm in Europe but the gameplay doesn't even make me want to emulate the game, I just watched a playthrough on youtube.

I also liked the story and the characters in the Wonderful 101 a lot, but the game itself was weird. The battle system is good and kind of similar to Bayonetta's, but there are too many shitty minigames interrupting you every five seconds. And seeing Luka as a kid in this game made me like him even more than in just Bayonetta 1 and 2.

Silent Hill 2 and 3. I absolutely adore both games and replay them every couple years but I don't play them for the gameplay. Although it can be argued that the frustrating gameplay adds to the experience, because it encourages you to just run away from threats.

Yeah, like I've said, the lore is there and is great, everything in Grimoire Cards and some stuff from later game; but I especially meant vanilla Destiny 1, as much as I love the game I just cant defend anything that is going there story/dialogue- wise.

>>123179
I feel the same, unfortunately it was always meant to be played with other people. Strikes are still doable in matchmaking so it's not so much of a problem when you have no friends, but missing out on playing raids because of that sucks. I was still playing with a few friends when Vault of Glass and Crota's End were introduced, figuring out VoG together - took us almost 16h to finish! - was SO MUCH FUN. But it's impossible to achieve with strangers and alone you'd have to spend your entire life playing to get this good. Too bad, because like you've said, aesthetics are so on point there.

Disney has this core principle they call brand integrity and it prevents them from allowing any sort of fan creation to thrive.

Finished it! It was wonderful, this is now my favourite game in the series. The sound design and the ambience was particularly good, along with the soundtrack - there is a melody in the game that is important to the story and they managed to make it really haunting and memorable. I loved the characters too especially Kirishima; in the previous game, the only male character was painfully bland so I was really glad they fleshed this one out. I also loved his plot twist-y ending.
My issues with the game were mostly technical - the translations were sometimes inaccurate or obscure but it was translated by fans, not official translators so I have no place to complain, and I found the controls to be difficult but I was emulating a game that was supposed to be played with a wiimote so it was to beexpected.
All in all, I recommend this to anyone who likes story based horror games

Anons, I'm losing my mind. I have no money and all I want to fucking do is play fighting games. I never received my stimulus checks so I missed a window of time where I could have bought a stick before really hunkering down. It's been 182 days since I've been able to play my favorite game (SF:Third Strike) on a cab. I'm fucking tweaking. I see Chun Li's little sprite doing tensei rankas and kikokens. I've resorted to watching people on twitch just to simulate the feeling of playing. I'm dying inside. I feel like nobody cares about third strike except balding scrotes.

I liked the first NieR a lot, loved the characters, story and OST, lot of people say the gameplay is bad but it's perfectly serviceable. I don't think I'll play the remake though because I liked the original enough and (unpopular opinion) I prefer Papa to Brother Nier. Automata is a good game but I think it was a bit overhyped, gameplay is good but not living up to other Platinum Games titles like Bayonetta or MGR, themes are so in your face it gets obnoxious by the end and I really couldn't get attached to any of the characters (especially 9S), I have a hard time considering androids "real" humans and couldn't really empathize with them. The OST isn't as memorable as the previous one either despite using the same kind of compositions, the track that I remember the most is the theme park lmao.
Weirdly enough I think my favorite game in the whole saga is the very first Drakengard because of how batshit insane it is. I don't really recommend playing it because it's objectively not a good game and you need to read a lot of extra material to make the connection with NieR, but I played it during a weird time in my life and associate a lot of memories with it.

Now that I beat DMC3SE with Dante I tried to play DMC2 and I've done 10 missions with Dante in less than two hours. It's not even a bad game, it's just the most bland shit I've ever played in my life. When I read that DMC2 was by far the worst game in the series I thought it would rival Sonic 06 in terms of bullshit and glitches but it's a fully functional game actually. I'm going to force myself to beat the game this weekend, and if after that I find Lucia too boring I'll just go back to DMC3 to unlock everything for Dante.

I wouldn't recommend it at all actually, since you need to complete the game on hard mode at least once in order to unlock her. The enemies don't get smarter or harder to beat with the increase in difficulty, they just become damage sponges and it's just really tedious to get through them (especially the bosses). Plus, a few sections of the game that are normally no problem become absolutely broken and unplayable on hard mode. Overall it's a shitty experience and not worth it if you just want to play as Trish.

How do you justify buying smash dlc when the price of all 12 fighters is the same as buying the base game? I want to play with Hero and the upcoming Xenoblade characters but I can't convince myself the pricing is worth it. It's not like they'll make me better at the game. Not to mention it'll be months before the final 2 fighters in this volume are revealed. I think I'll use the money for Mario 3D World or Pikmin instead.

anyway, new splatoon game definitely saved the whole thing for me personally - even the AC announcement was super lame, i was expecting more than just the mario collection since we've known it was coming for months. i got super excited at whatever that square enix game was too because i thought it was a new fire emblem, kek

Yes I came here to recommend the TMGS games as well! They're cute and very addicting and bingeable. There's three games and naturally the third is the most polished, but the first two hold up as well. The order doesn't really matter so I would just play whichever one appeals to you the most in terms of love interests or whatever else.
The best part is that you can run them on a potato since all three are DS games and emulating them is a piece of cake.

I'm back after spending the last few days playing other games. I beat the game with Dante. The game was actually super short compared to what I expected and I have no idea why they used a second disc for Lucia because her route doesn't seem very different so far.

Honestly I expected DMC2 to be far worse than it is because of its reputation, and I think if it were my first game of the genre back when I was younger I would have liked it because of how easy and simple it is. But it's not worth the 5€ I spent on my copy. I'm glad I didn't spend 20€ on it for the Switch. I'll go back to Xenoblade Chronicles or DMC3 right after that.

Sure but I would prefer if this bs was kept away from the game. It will probably not affect my enjoyment that much, though. I bet the creators are trying to avoid sale drops and boycott of the game by retarded amerifag sjws. Funny how you can make your character trans, but not physically or mentally disabled (in a different way than being trans), kek.
One day the world will look back on all this shit and cringe. It's embarrassing as hell. And tbh, it doesn't even make sense in a Harry Potter world! I bet if a child has a dysphoria, they could magically fix it and give them their right body. Nobody would need to identify as trans.

when I was thinking about all this shit, the only situation in which a 'trans' person (not sure if children actually can even suffer dysphoria) may arrive at Hogwarts is if they're a muggle. But the issue would be solved with a selection of a proper backstory - you arrived in the wizarding world, got some medical tests done, wizard doctors found you have dysphoria, they fixed that for you and now your muggle family is in for a big surprise. That's it.
Frankly, it's even ridiculous to ponder all those posibilities in the context of a wish-fullfilment fantasy game about wizards living in a conservative society in the freaking 1800s. It's even MORE ridiculous for trans people being recognized as such, my head hurts when I think about it.

Smells more like generic character customisation like The Sims, where body shape and voice pitch can be anything, and your sex is determined by 'witch' or 'wizard'…which in universe is girl and boy obviously.

Can't wait for all the trannies to use this as a totally justifiable reason to buy the game they were desperate to play anyway, screeching 'take THAT JKR' all while paying directly into her pocket and keeping her work relevant still. The more I think about it, the more based JKR becomes. She's looking these people straight in the eye and saying 'fuck you' while taking their money. That's the level of success I want to achieve.

Styling Star was kind of a disappointment, but after going back and playing it again, they made a lot of good choices. The thing that sucked was the fact you couldn't make bank off of dressing up the men and I feel the hairstylist and beauty salon were so bland, there wasn't really much of a challenge when you went there.
Also, why the fuck did they get rid of the men's clothing options? We were just given everything from the get go, but it was so limited. I hope they bring it back.
Fashion Forward was definitely the most fun of the three overall, I did not like the fact it took place in real time and the clothing space was limited, but comparing all three 3DS games this one comes out on top for me.
Trendsetters is really janky if you go back and try to play it. A lot of graphical slow-downs.
But yes, it needs a Switch release. Put in all the good things that came with the previous games and mash it all into one. It will be a success.

I already disliked it because it looks like cheap garbage to me. In games such as SoS or Animal Crossing, artstyle and graphics are important for the cozy atmosphere most people want from the games.

Okay, I downloaded the 3DS version and few hours in, it's great and rather addictive (in a good way!). The game is absolutely hilarious, but it largely depends on your set up of the team. So you absolutely should put in yourself, your friends, significant other, favorite celebrities or characters etc. Same with the Mage Jesus and the Demolord. By now, my team consists of myself, my bf, Adam Driver and Robert Smith. It's absolutely hilarious to see interactions between the team members. Since the Switch version amps the Mii customization and connectivity, it will probably be even better! I'm looking forward to buying the game for Switch unless I get bored of it. I hope it will be not as expensive as high budget Nintendo titles, but probably I'm wrong.
I'm also really looking forward to finally being able to play Skyward Sword, so I may wait and buy used Miitopia for Switch. I think it's an awesome game and cannot wait to see all the more detailed Miis of famous people/characters!

It looks artificial and corporate, the people don't look 'alive'. Their eyes are so soulless with no warmth. It's clear that the artist has a type, but in their attempt to make everyone look different they all look so… samey. I can't tell anything about their personalities from looking at them, aside from maybe the pink haired girl. And except for the manbun, every dateable guy has literally the same hairstyle. And the little girl shown in the video, her head is the same size as her ENTIRE torso. I don't mean to offend but gosh I really hate the art style.

for story based games the Dark Pictures Anthology has good co-op options for online/local and while it's not really co-op playing similar cyoa style games like Until Dawn, Life is Strange or David Cage games while discussing the decisions together is a great time

Portal 2 is a co-op classic with it's own co-op story and is entirely puzzle based, the Borderlands games can be as big co-op timesinks as you want and the difficulty is mostly based on what loot you find and I had fun playing through all of the stories of Resident Evil 5 & 6, Fear 3 and Black Ops 3 in co-op which are all split-screen and you can just choose the easy modes if you're not good at shooters, also messing about with the superpowers in the open world in Saints Row 4 is a laugh in co-op but it's online only

I used my Vita to play games I never got to play on older consoles, so what I can recommend is this
>the Dangan Ronpa series, I only really loved the first game, whether you'll like the series or not really depends on your tastes and expectations. Avoid the fanbase at all cost
>you can in theory play all the main FF games from the 1st one to 10-2
>if you like P4G, I'd recommend Persona 3 Portable. Unlike the other versions of P3 you can control all your party members just like in P4 and P4G. P1 remake and P2IS are officially available in English as well because they're PSP games but I wouldn't recommend them for every Persona fans because they have different mechanics.
>MGS2 and 3 HD. They include ports of MG1 and 2 if you want to play the very first games in the series.
>Gravity Rush is ok. I have no idea why they didn't even bother making a Vita version of the second game
>Vanillaware games are recommended, I have Odin Sphere and Dragon's Crown but I haven't tried them yet.
>the Zero Escape series as a whole

Most of the interesting games are ports or were ported to other consoles. You'll even have some games that were announced for the Vita that were cancelled and released on other consoles instead because the Switch and PS4 are more recent and/or popular, or the Vita wasn't powerful enough for these games and the devs didn't notice until later, like the AI Somnium Files or Aegis 13 whatever the title is. Some games were released only in Japan too, like Catherine Fullbody, so get it on the Switch (which includes all the DLCs) or the PS4 (DLCs sold separately). I don't regret having mine because I got it early but if I knew that I would have saved that money and spent it on a PS4 a few years later. P4G is also available on PC now btw. The only difference is that you can choose the Japanese voice acting on PC only.

I couldn't care less for LiS 2 but this one actually shapes up to be interesting; the murder(?) mystery, the scenery is gorgeous, the protagonist power also is also a cool concept that can be used in a clever way, I'm actually curious about the game now and will most likely play. I know it's an unpopular opinion here but it honestly doesn't matter whether protag is trans or not, I like her design a lot, she looks like a real person, actually even reminds me of my friend a bit.

I'm still not done with Xenoblade Chronicles DE, but I'm in the middle of chapter 13 so I should be near the end of the game by now. I really need to get this off my chest but while I'm enjoying playing this game it's far from the masterpiece I expected. I don't get why it got this reputation as one of the best "recent" JRPGs, was it just because it was one of the very few RPGs on the Wii back then?

I already have a copy of XB2, I hope some things will be a bit more interesting than the first one, like the story or the allies' AI.

Yes it does. Nobody gave a shit last time they did this, in fact it felt like they purposefully wrote the trans character to be an absolute asshole to everyone. Dontnod really has a hate-boner for working class white people and it shows in their writing.

In 2, the menus can take years off your life and the fucking map system is another story. It's a massive game and it would occasionally be nice to have a clear reminder where quest 52,932 completes.

>with less than mediocre battle system.
True. I wish there was a demo on the eshop so I knew what to expect. I'm way more used to turn-based combat in RPGs or straight up action games, so I hate not being able to control all the party members and I feel like it would have been WAY better if it was possible to switch between your three chosen party members mid-battle to actually use strategies or at least compensate for the shitty AI. Kind of like what you can do in Sword of Mana.

Speaking f Bravely Default, I bought a copy of the game in 2017 and never had enough time to play it but it's next in my backlog. I loved FF3 on the DS back when it was released so I have a feeling I'll love this game too, but then again I already know what to expect since I've played the older FF games and it's obviously trying to reference them a lot.

A YTer I follow recently started playing Rakuen, I really want to watch it to see his reactions but I also know I'm going to get emotional as soon as he starts it.

I usually don't cry to media in general, but Rakuen is the first to ever make me fucking ugly cry. Just listening to the soundtrack years later makes me cry. It's a really, really good game with a beautiful story that knows how to hit your weak points even when you at times figure out what is going to happen next.

Different anon. I wouldn't say the writers had a "hate-boner" for white people, they were just trying to be topical. Lis2 was clearly written in reaction to trump, and as a result there's some hamfisted dialogue,as well as a few characters that are just one-dimensional racist assholes.

It's kind of dissapointing compared to the first game where even the asshole characters like David, Frank, and Nathan had some depth and sympathetic aspects to them.

I been playing the game is been fun. It looks exactly like th demand the picreal, which is fantastic. The camera is free floating for some areas so you can place it however you want but it doesn't track so you will probably have to adjust it every so often. Other areas it's locked to a set position. The beginning very slow as up can't do much until you finally grow rice. I feel like the pic i posted the first time was a bit misleading as the game is about rice field but it's also an action game. The fighting mechanic imo.are really fun and easy to use.

I will also say I did not expect the story to go the way it did based off of what I played on the demo but nonetheless it's great and Is recommended it.

I know the character creation and overall content is lacking compared to others like it but. I'm just so sad there's not a chance to ever get a sequel unless some other company buys the rights.

It reminds me of AP because of the feel of the city and the way the characters interact with each other. I think AP had better dialogue and cutscenes but if I was to compare it to any other harvest moon game I'd say that one. It was my favourite HM game as well. I'm not going to say its perfect but since it came out I've played if for 10 hours now and it's enjoyable. My only criticism so far is the makers are pretty annoying but it's easy to get by and my game got stuck on a loading screen once and I had to lose my progress so that sucked but it was easy enough to get back. I am noticing a tiny bit of lag but it doesn't really bother me that much but it is weird that it happens. Maybe I'm too forgiving because Im not sure that it feels unfinished or lacking.

I love the new crafting system and collecting items like stardew as it gives you something to work towards each day past the villagers and animals or just cleaning up the farm. I love the idea of helping build up the city as well. The character designs are good and the models look really good, I hated the chibi aesthetic of the past games that made us all look like children.

I wouldn't say to go into it expecting a perfect or amazing harvest moon game if your a long term fan because I imagine expectations are high due to love of past games. If your really nervous whether you wont like it or not just watch a few let's plays and see how you feel, that's what I did and I found myself thinking that I wanted to play, or wait till its on sale.

I hope you gals can help me out because this is driving me crazy.
Yesterday I had a extremely vivid flashback of playing a game where basically the player character is very small and running around a race track /obstacle course in a house. The course was made out of everyday objects, kind of like those rube goldberg machines people make for ping pong balls, but hasn't been deliberately arranged for the player character.
The player is about 5cm tall but i don't remember if it was a person or an animal or whatever. I remember different rooms in the house were different levels, for instance the kitchen might have flames on the cooker you had to avoid, a wooden spoon laid against a pan you had to run up. The laundry room had soap you could slip in etc. I think there was a cat you had to avoid at some point too. There weren't any other people to race against, it was more like a time trial thing. Imagine single player Gangbeasts with the view set side on.
I'm guessing it's over ten years old based on how old the memory is, I don't know which format it's in either. I may have only played it once at somebody else's house.
Please help, I really want to play this game again

>What were the graphics like? Isometric, 3D, etc?
3d graphics definitely. The camera was computer controlled and moved a little but not much, always side on. It was sort of like a platformer, the pc moved around the room from roughly left to right, but also up and down (onto shelves and the floor etc). I remember being frustrated that I couldn't freely explore the house and that I was limited to the track. The track was only loosely drawn out by things like spilled sugar packets and dropped spoons, it was all very accidental.
The general design wasn't very stylised, like the 3d models of things weren't overly complicated (this was probably 10+ years ago) but not cartoonish either. Boxes of laundry soap and soup and ketchup had fake but plausible labels, for instance.

>Can you remember if it was handheld or console or on a computer?

It was most likely a console. My best friend had a gamecube and other friends had ps2s. It wasn't a game I owned or I would have played it to death, I know that much, and I only had a gameboy colour.

>Was there any dialogue in the game?

No, no character development at all. You were just a small thing running around somebody's house, gotta go fast, try not to die.

>Can you remember anything about the soundtrack or sound effects?

That's not a thing I remember at the best of times, unfortunately.

It's been a while since I used Sharla because of how useless she becomes once you get more party members. I was stuck in a fight with the chapter 15 boss, and as soon as I have to beat other enemies on the map to prevent an attack from the boss Reyn and Riki were just not moving instead of following me.

I ordered myself two games for the Switch and I'm so excited to play both. So glad I saw the promo on gamestop that let me get one of the games discounted. I do hate that I debated with myself to the point where one of the games I originally wanted sold out online but I can always get it later when there is a sale/price drops. I ended up getting Dragon Quest XI and Luigi's Mansion 3. Dragon quest was a must for me since it's one of my favorite series and I liked what I tried on my PC but my PC could barely run it (and it was on game pass so didn't waste money.) Luigi's mansion was my third choice but like I said the game I wanted originally sold out (story of seasons: pioneers of olive town.) I am happy story of seasons sold out; been looking forward to playing Luigi's Mansion 3 since it was announced, it's one of my favorite nintendo series, and it looks way better then the second one. I normally hate buying myself stuff but I decided to treat myself since I never buy myself anything.

I'm finally in the last chapter in Xenoblade Chronicles 1 and I said earlier in the thread I expected some kind of masterpiece instead of a slightly above average JRPG. Well, I just saw someone on /v/ saying that the generic fantasy manga/JRPG story was always praised in the West because the original game on the Wii didn't really have an "anime" aesthetic and was played by Westerners who usually hate everything "anime" so it was their first time seeing this kind of very generic story. This makes so much sense. I'll never follow recommendations from Americans who despises Japanese video games ever again.

That's awesome anon, I'm glad I could help you conjure up some good memories!! I love that about games, how vivid the memories can be, even if it's been so long since you've thought about them. I guess the qualities that make the experience more immersive are also ones which lend themselves to memory formation, like you've got audio and visual stimulation through the graphics and music, then you have the interactivity with the environment—the control scheme and physics of your character in the world (and the inherent muscle memory you develop as you master the controls), the sound effects which enhance interactivity/immersion, the capacity for exploration and discovery, the sense of achievement as you progress—all providing more associations to strengthen the memories formed. But I'm just riffing here I don't really know what I'm talking about kek

Finished the game, mini-review incoming!! It was a LOT of fun. Initially I hated the quick time events because I felt like they broke the immersion but looking back they really set the pacing of the game and helped it to always feel varied and they kept the players on their toes at all time. I loved the characters and even the cutscenes were a lot of fun to watch because of the cheesy dialogue and the hammy delivery. Leon has a special place in my heart now.
>do I suck or is it ridiculously hard?
So I read up on the game and it turns out it has a dynamic difficulty setting. Meaning that if you have an easy time with the enemies, the game will dial up the difficulty (the enemies are quicker, deal more damage and drop less resources) and if you struggle a lot, it will be easier (fewer, weaker enemies and you find more ammo). I would like to think that the reason I found it difficult because the game felt that I was a pro lmao. Another thing I noticed is that the more I used a particular weapon, the less ammo I found for it. My favourite was the rifle and the shotgun, so towards the end of the game my inventory was chock full of handgun and magnum ammos but I couldn't find any rifle or shotgun ammo for the life of me. All in all, recommended for anyone who likes fast paced action games

I get that anon. Last time I played it I felt the same. I just wanted Venti back ASAP, so I could have her be there for mine and Vishnal's wedding and our child's birth. What I did was set the game mode to easy (no shame) and tamed a Minotaur king from Sharance Maze. Then in one of the final dungeons I tamed Death Wall (you have to beat him first). Death Wall is pretty easy to tame because he wants ice cream, and if you go to the bath house with Vishnal in your party (I would recommend getting the free bath order ASAP) he'll give you ice cream when you get out if your friendship is hard enough. Doing this helped me get Venti back relatively quickly and now I'm just enjoying town and farm life and waiting for Vishnal to propose. The 3rd Arc is the final Arc.

I actually got the Neutral ending by accident, which I've been told is ridiculously hard to do without a guide because you have to have a very specific alignment when you get to the alignment lock.

Yeah you got lucky.

Nocturne is good but it's a philosophical/gameplay nightmare for new players. The puzzles can be bloody tedious as shit and some game mechanics are so cryptic with no prior explanation or tutorial like moon cycles. Also it will take you awhile to become familiar with the resistances and strengths of demons without having any SMT experience.

Instead, I'd recommend SMTIV or a shorter, less commital non-mainline game like Strange Journey, hell even Devil summoner or Raidou might be up a new players alley. Similar mechanics are shared for all SMT games and nocturne can be quite punishing for new players compared to other games in the series. Persona is a decent introduction to SMT games. Persona is generally difficulty-lite compared to mainline, at least Persona, 2, 3,4, and 5. Eternal punishment might be worth revisiting afterwards as well its incredibly hard, probably the most difficult Persona game in the series. It's been years since I've played nocturne but its can be a tedious experience for a new player.

Downloaded Abzu instead, less scary.

Late, but I finally finished up Cyberpunk 2077 and really all the endings do suck, either by what happens in them or how the game bitches at you for choosing them.

Devil was my favorite pretty much solely because Takemura is my favorite character. All the other endings have too much collateral damage, and I hate how Saul dies in the Aldecaldo ending. That bit where Johnny makes a friend with the kid if you let him keep your body is amusing though, especially if you're playing as a female, he probably thought he found his manic pixie dreamgirl. Space station heist and Mr. Blue eyes is just too sudden/dlc hook for me to think it's cool.

I think the Cyberpunk endings were all great. I played through them all back to back, but it took me like a week to actually assimilate what I saw.
Sacrifice is the key. Night City doesn't let you walk away without taking something from you.
In the Star ending the Aldecaldos are your family, and sometimes having a family means you have to let them sacrifice themselves for you, as it's their choice and they do it because they care.
Sun ending, you let Rogue face her demons (remember she's still feeling guilty because she sold out to Arasaka years prior), she knew the risks and she came with you (Johnny) willingly, facing her enemy Smasher before dying.
Devil ending, what you lose is yourself. You sell out to people who won't help you, you help the demon who wants to nuke NC restore the status quo and become an immortal god, you lose your loved ones in the process. Takemura is a good man, but he's siding with the wrong people.
Suicide ending was really powerful, nothing to add.
Ironically enough, Don't fear the reaper is the least powerful ending of them all, because you lose nothing.
In any case, the three open endings (Star, Sun and Devil-V goes back to Earth) are obvious expansion pack/sequel material, so I can't wait for the continuation of the story personally. Actually think the sense of dread after completing the endings is part of the experience.

I guess it depends on if you like depressing media or not.
It just didn't feel authentic, to me it was super obvious how the writers wanted you to feel and if you didn't feel the same way it was just preachy and annoying.

Star, they already killed Bob and Ted and made you think something was going to happen to Mitch, then they kill Saul too just to be jerks, and nobody seems to really care at the end. Panam is just ok to me but that seems to be the main draw for everybody else.
With Rogue, at least if you choose Temperance Johnny realizes how he sort of manipulated her, it was just cheap how Smasher just kills her so easily.
Devil maybe didn't read as evil so much to me because despite how 'evil' Saburo might be in the gamebook lore it doesn't really show in game. And I didn't romance anybody so the only person that is really mad at you is Misty. Alt just massacring Arasaka in the other endings and becoming a hivemind with the Mikoshi souls just strikes me as way more 'evil' and potentially dangerous. And then Militech and Yorinobu are probably going to start another war or something.

Anyway, I still plat-ed it and deleted, and we'll see if DLC come out anytime soon.

I'm about to throw my Switch against a wall, the maps are even more annoying to decipher than before. At least you warned me. I unironically like the humor in this game, not really just because it's kinda funny but because it reminds me of fantasy/adventure manga and anime from the 90s so it makes me feel a bit nostalgic.

The way I saw it with Saul, they had him welcome you into the family personally, then come with you and be sweet with you one last time before shit goes south on purpose, so you can feel even worse. Panam's scream when he's killed froze the blood in my veins the first time.
As for Rogue, Smasher caught her by surprise and broke her arm. There isn't much she could've done.
About Devil, the game sends you red flags over and over about the Arasakas (if you've played VTMB, it's basically the Kuei Jin ending, and I don't think it wasn't done on purpose). It really helps if you pay attention to the inworld television, radio and read shards. It might seem just background noise at first but then you'll really realize how interconnected everything is and how much foreshadowing and essential info are hidden around. Examples: on the radio, I once heard the radio host on Morro Rock telling us that Arasaka copies every engram in the Secure Your Soul program to torture them and extract info from them. If you read the shard you find on Saburo's AV during The Heist, it's some pages from his diary. He says that he plans on nuking NC, should Yorinobu tell him he lost the Relic. And when you switch the attention to Yorinobu, you find out how he's the one "good" Arasaka, a punk at heart, who really wants to destroy the evil of this company from within, and committed a necessary crime to prevent his father from taking more lives and committing more heinous shit.
Long story short: V's engram will either remain in cyberpurgatory forever, or get heavily edited to Arasaka's liking (this was also written, in the contract iirc - they have the right to edit or shred your engram however they please). It's the bad ending. It's terrible, it makes you feel like shit with V slowly going crazy in space and being treated like shit by the doctor and calling her loved ones only to hear them say "I told you so, 'sakas are assholes, now come back to Earth". Would never pick it as the definitive ending for my V, but I enjoyed it.
I agree about Alt, I think she's creepy and definitely up to something. In the end, you have two evils to pick from. I wonder if it's a reminder to "The lesser evil" from The Witcher.
Anyway, it's all very interesting. A bit of an infodump, but the tabletop rulebook also dumps a lot of info on you… Guess that's just how it is, kek.
Sorry for the essay.

I felt the same! It follows very similar emotional story structure as Journey (must play if you haven't yet)- immerse yourself into the world, then face it's dangers, then struggle, then you feel the catharsis of the final freedom sequence. the last swim with all the fish and sea creatures, where you're fast and it feels like you're flying is so beautiful and feels so liberating, it's hard to not feel moved. Such a gorgeous game! Happy to see other people enjoying it as much as I did.

Just want to recommend this game as I'm enjoying it a lot: Cozy Grove. It's kind of like Animal Crossing mixed with a find the hidden object game in a cuter Don't Starve aesthetic. Busy description but I think it gets the point across. Some people are flipping out about it being time gated but I don't see the problem, it's exactly how Animal Crossing forces you to wait for certain quests or objectives to complete in real time. And in the same way, the longer you play over time, the more things open up and more you have to keep yourself occupied. You can time travel if you really want, but the devs have said to make sure you never roll back the time after you do this or it'll corrupt your save. I also like that the characters in CG are individualized and part of an overarching plot, where AC just kind of throws a bunch of generic stereotypes together with no real "story" aside from special events.

How intimidated are you by time limits? If not much, I suggest starting at Atelier Rorona DX. The alchemy system is satisfying, you have a little challenge sprinkled in with time management, and the characters start off as fun cliches and get more development throughout the trilogy. Also the Arland trilogy has one of my favorite MCs ever, Totori. Then again, I love characters who look cute and have a strong, stubborn side to them.

If you absolutely hate time limits, Ryza is definitely a good place to start though. Don't let the coomer memes turn you off from it, there is absolutely no fanservice at all (aside from DLC swimsuits) and Ryza herself is a resilient and proactive character.

DGS is finally going to have an official release outside of Japan except no physical copies will be sold in Europe AGAIN. Fuck Capcom, I'll import a Japanese or American copy even if it costs me an arm and a leg. At least I love how Capcom will avoid copyright problems with Sherlock Holmes and Iris Watson by changing their names with their Arsène Lupin counterparts' names. This is so meta and it reminds me of when I read the book when I was a kid. Thank god these were written by Shu Takumi because AA5 was just some Ghost Trick plagiarism and AA6's main plot was the whole Fey family drama from the trilogy but taking place in not!India. At least 6-2 was an amazing case and 6-4 was fun.

I also bought a physical copy of Pokemon Shield that includes the DLC in the cartridge, it was like 30€ less expensive than it should have been so if I end up being disappointed in this game I'll be able to sell it and not lose too much from this purchase overall.

I'm noticing how I'm caring less and less about new releases. I'm only looking forward to DG1+2, SMT5 and Bayonetta 3. I think I'm just becoming more of a normie nowadays or my expectations for video games are too high so I keep being disappointed, I don't know.

I'm really not fond of the direction they took with the OST of NieR Replicant 1.22, it's the same shit with the remake of Demon's Souls where adding random
and cheap orchestrations makes it boring, it really sounds like an OverClocked remix. The choirs in particular sound like opera from any generic epic soundtrack, a lot of the intimist atmosphere of the original is gone imho. Guess having zero budget makes people more creative.

Anyone else playing this? It feels like a downgrade on almost all aspects. The new character models are hideous both stylistically and technically and although I'm starting to warm up to brother nier, papa nier is still clearly the superior one.
Everything aside from the character models is literally just upscaled from the original so the graphics look hideous by 2021 standards.
Not feeling the music remixes either. It does run a lot better though but that's it.
I hope there's some significant additions to the story because as it is it's just an inferior version of the original and there's no reason to play it unless you don't have access to a ps3.

Honestly I see no reason anymore to play remasters and remakes, especially in this day where playing old games has never been easier. Unless you go full Resident Evil or FFVII level there's no point to selling at full price what's essentially a graphical overall. The remakes of Demon's Souls and Shadow of the Colossus in particular are a travesty, zero additional content and a visual downgrade. The only interesting remasters are when several games are packaged together (like MGS or Yakuza) so it's easier to play them, but otherwise there was really no need for that version of NieR, which was available on XBox as well. I guess it was just to cash on Automata's success, especially with people complaining about the gameplay (which was perfectly serviceable, let's be honest).

Anons please help me find my game
It had you navigating a hotel (or maybe a cruise ship or something similar) and all over there were ghosts hidden in different locations. They looked like dark silhouettes and you had to talk to them and help them with whatever they needed so they could pass to the other side
I'm pretty sure you also had to navigate around an invisible monster of sorts chasing you through the building. I found it through a youtube video but I can't find it anymore…

If I were to guess I'd say it was a ps2 era game, that's how it looked like. And it didn't seem like a typical horror game I'd say it was more atmospheric for sure
It had a 1st person view and I think you progressed through solving simple puzzles for the spirits - connect the dots kinda thing

I'll also add that the game was 3D and I'm pretty sure it had some kinda mechanic related to light. I think it had to do with the invisible entity aggression since I remember the guy in the video mentioning a dangerous situation having to do with trying to restore the lights again. I think it also helped you see the spirits better since some were hard to find and hiding (there was one child ghost under the desk notoriously hard to find)

Is there a way to play the original Nier without a ps3? Other than emulating which my shitty pc can't handle. I disagree with playing old games being easy as newer console's are not backwards compatible, older console's online services are shut down, hunting down and buying physical copies of older games can be difficult and expensive, the selection of old games being sold on PSN is very limited, etc etc. I mean if you have a beefy pc and can emulate then it's a whole nother story. I have mad respect towards the emulation community for their work in preserving old games.
I bought the remake under the impression it would be more than just a remake, as Yoko Taro hinted towards something like that. I haven't run into any new content yet but I've only played for 10 hours.
I agree with you on the price point though, remasters and remakes shouldn't be sold full price, period. The Nier remake was 55e on launch which is less than the 70e triple A games go for nowadays but still an absolute rip off.

I think it's kinda related to my example with Ace Attorney, they often have no idea who they're targeting and how to do this, or they're delusional enough to think their ultra niche weeb projects will have a normie audience that needs to be spoonfed. Same deal with some visual novels, I've been told. So they remove Japanese references and replace them with Western references even when it makes no sense. They also think they're hilarious when they are the least funny people I've ever seen so when they try to localize jokes with less obscure references nobody laughs.

I don't think it'll make a big hit either, the gacha system isn't really sustainable, iirc you can only buy packs of items to accelerate the game and to open more space, nothing to have a better chance to acquire the swords, plus there's zero story and gameplay, there's nothing enticing about it in the year of Twisted Wonderland and Granblue.

Husbando collecting, that's pretty much it, it's the only saving grace off the game (and the designs tend to be super cool, I give them that). The game is basically a clone of Kantai Collection, which was released before the gacha boom of the mid 2010s and it shows, now gameplay and story are almost as important as the characters. That's why it's so jarring to release it now, they should have just made an entirely new game with the same characters to renew the interest in the franchise in Japan as well (like with the new Love Live game from two years ago).

At some point when I was still on twitter I'd always see arguments and drama between American weeb translators justifying every bad decisions they'd make, and I'm 100% sure American translators who translate Japanese movies, novels, or official documents are way more competent and professional than them.

I think this might be the place to ask (still sageing because I'm not sure if flash games count for this thread), but I just remembered when I was younger there used to be a game I liked to play that was some free online rpg (possibly rpg maker) and I want to look at it again but I don't remember the title and I can't find it now anymore.

I remember you played as a guy that woke up in an island and I think with amnesia. You had to fight creatures and get material to craft weapons and you could also get creature pets to help you fight, and there were some statue ladies that spoke with you. I think the statues would tell you you had to go to some sort of fighting contest but I never got to that part of the game so I don't remember. It had pretty bright colours from what I recall.

Anons who are playing or have finished RE8, can you answer some questions without spoiling it completely? I haven't had the chance to play it but I'm so curious about the story.
Is there gonna be a plot twist involving Rosemary and Mia? (The Chris killing Mia kidnapping Rose thing was too much for me - I'm thinking either Mia died in the previous game and Ethan hallucinated the whole family part and this is how Chris wanted to make him realize this OR Mia has indeed died and Rose has some of the mold-virus thing in her and that's why she was kidnapped…Lady D spoke about a ceremony on the phone, maybe Rose is involved in that? They want to sacrifice her? Or maybe the baddies are gonna turn her into a big bad moldmonster through the ceremony?) Also on some boxarts, Chris is half himself and half something else with one glowing eye. Is this a reference to him being turned to something during the course of the game? Or did they just do it because it looks cool?

They're just as important as Rex if not more. Rex is way less shallow than I thought, I like him.

Considering she's pushing really hard the "haha I'm meme mom" shit on her fanbase, I think the two last kek.
RE8 was ok, I liked it less than 7 and 4 still wins everything in my book. I liked the multiple easter eggs to 4 a lot though. Also, so annoying that they decided to pronounce "Demitrescu" like "Domitresque"; yes we get it, she's suppose to be the game's hot character.

I'm playing Subnautica Below Zero and so far I'm weirdly disappointed and can't even explain why. I think it's because the OG game kind of desensitizedme to the creepiness of leviathans and cave systems. I also do find the story less interesting, but you can tell the devs tried really hard.

I'm playing below zero too and I get what you mean. Gameplay and mechanics wise I feel like they're improved pretty much everything, it's not as much as a chore to play anymore but the things that made the original so enjoyable (atmosphere, music, minimalistic story, biomes, creatures) are all worse and the experience just isn't the same. I hate having a voiced protagonist and I hate how like 50% of the game is spent on land. It gets better once you get over the story heavy beginning and get to exploring and base building though.

Please start free trial first, there are thousands of hours of content that will make you decide if you want to pay for it or not!

Personally, for me it was the best "soloplayer" mmorpg. I am really introverted in MMORPGs because of the amount of creeps in any games, etc so I was happy with FF XIV.

The sad part about xiv is it's community. But there should be no surprises, after all FF is a Japanese RPG franchise. You will meet a lot of ERP perverts and trannies combined, especially with how Twitter randomly decided to grab this game by its neck after they made 1st expansion f2p in free trial. It sucks but that's how MMORPGs are tbh. A lot of people suck their whole life in it.

It takes a while to catch up TBH but it's not undoable. It's fun if you enjoy reading the story(pretty decent). You can also play up to level 60 on the trial and decide if it's for you or not. While there are a lot of ERPers like >>143688 said, something to keep in mind is that it also has the most shockingly normie community and 1:1 gender ratio I've seen. A LOT of women play this game and the price point combined with subscription means that the majority of the players are adults. You don't get a lot of children throwing slurs or being misogynistic or anything in chat, which is a bonus. You just have to deal with uwu weebs once in a while, and yes, there are a lot of trannies but they're generally easy to avoid.

I really don't think it's that blatant except for some specific blades. And so far I didn't get any of the weird ones besides the bunny girl, but she's too useful for me to hate her since she's a healer.

Not directly related I guess, but I really like the characters created by Nomura. They all look great, I wish he'd use this style more often, instead of drawing characters wearing 2000s fashion with anime proportions and too many details like pores. I can't unsee Jin/Shin as Cloud though.

To actually answer your question: yes, it's worth starting now if you're okay with something that starts VERY slow and are into JRPGs. The storylines for HW and Shadowbringers are insanely good. Early game content does have a lot of forced dungeons/trials that you have to do in order to move the story along but since it is really old content it goes SUPER fast and most groups are experienced/don't talk. There's also an event going on right now that's encouraging people to run the older raids/scenarios so they're going very fast with people who are chill and just running them for event currency.

Solo'ing early game content will depend a lot on you and your class. Farming for the currency to buy higher gear isn't hard, there are a lot of different choices, and you can even just buy really decent gear with gil. Gil is easy to make if you're into crafting. I got most of my gear that way and then was able to solo HW trails on my own while being at level for them. I solo'd things as a White Mage but I think the absolute best class for soloing is Paladin and Red Mage.

The newest expac implemented something called "trusts" which let you form a party with NPC's so you can do all the story dungeons by yourself with NPC's. It makes the game almost fully like a solo RPG. They're going to have trusts back for the next expac too.

I just had a 4 day long weekend so I managed to nearly reach the very end of Xenoblade 2. I've been doing a bunch of side quests on top of completing several chapters in a row. I'm glad I played Xenoblade DE before that one despite the order of released because of the big plot twist at the end with Malos fighting with his Monado except his AI doesn't suck ass like Shulk's, fuck Shulk. And then there was that entire shit that made me rethink about everything with Alvis in the first game.

I'm seriously going to be burnt out by that game because of some of the quests being long and annoying as fuck, I can't believe I'm saying this but I liked the ones in the first game way more, at least most of them didn't require any backtracking. I'm thinking about beating the game tomorrow and starting the DLC campaign right after that, then I'll move on to shorter games.

Xander is Corrin s adoptive brother but always knew she was kidnapped and nothing more than a political hostage, and Ryoma is Corrin's step-brother who always knew it, he didn't grow up with her for very long and hides it until he wants to fuck her, and he goes full yandere in Conquest.

And the dogshit writing. Not trying to claim awakening or 3H's had amazing writing either, but Fates was probably the worst offender of the three.

Even if Corrin's not related to any of their "siblings", it's still pretty side-eye worthy that the game felt the need to tack on a stupid letter with queen mikoto telling you, "W-well ackshually you guys aren't blood related, so if you wanna fuck each other that's cool"

No. 145436

>>145434
It only applies to the younger Hoshido siblings, and it was more shitty fanservice than shitty writing because of how out of place it is. But in Ryoma's case it just works because he never needed the letter and he just proves how batshit insane he actually is in Conquest, it makes sense that such a crazy guy would do that. I still can't believe Camilla has the reputation of the generic yandere waifu when Ryoma exists and even brags about being worse than her in some dialogs.

You can't be serious. Here s a list of characters who "love" Corrin, aka they get along with the MC:
>Corrin's adoptive siblings who grewup together
>Corrin's step-siblings who won't stop hearing about her from the MC's mother. They only get along once they meet and if Corrin is their ally
>Corrin's childhood friends
>Corrin's siblings' employees, and some of them take time to actually get along with Corrin like Saizo

Now keep in mind that among the sibligs and friends, some of them are explicitely fucked in the head, like Ryoma and Camilla becoming yandere because of their daddy issues way more than because of Corrin, or Xander and Kaze being straight up suicidal because of things only indirectly related to Corrin. Kaze literally commits suicide on screen if you don't solve his personal issues in Birthright.

I finally beat Xenoblade 2. Actually I beat it yesterday. Here's my unpopular opinion: the story and characters are WAY better than in Xenoblade 1 where the only developed characters are Shulk, Melia and Egil and the antagonists are way more relevant. I'm also very surprised that the evil priest with mommy issues who's voiced by Junichi Suwabe and the playable characters wearing way too many useless belts are the ones that aren't designed by Nomura. Nomura's characters look great though. I wish the characters could move at a normal speed during battles just like they do on the map, it would have made the game so much better.

Is it bad that as a long time SoulsBorne fan I haven't managed to care about this game?

A bunch of fans are going "dark souls with a horse!1", but I don't know, I feel it's a major step down from Sekiro. Wait and see of course but I'm not as enthusiastic as the majority.

Do you feel like that’s a bad thing? Since you’re a long-term fan. They have a formula that works for them so I don’t see much harm in sticking to it. Sekiro was definitely a departure from their typical games in some ways and explored a different feel and combat style. The same could be said of Bloodborne to an extent. Personally I liked them more than the clunkier pace of DS, but a lot of people have been waiting for a return to that original style. I feel like they’ll still innovate in some way while giving fans what they expect. The fact it’s going to have a much larger open world is already fairly unique for them.

It's basically Yu's but deeper, which I kinda get thematically but, personally I liked hearing Adachi's whinier voice since you couldn't tell it was the same dude voicing him. Yosuke's voice in the recent spin-offs (dancing, arena ultimax, q, and crosstag) also sounds like pure aids. Really wish atlus would stop flandarizing the characters in spin-offs but, what can you do.

It's all because of the crossovers where the characters with the same voice actors talk to each other on a regular basis. In Persona Q P3MC and Yosuke would have sounded exactly the same if the voice actor acted as usual. So now you have Yosuke speaking with a weird as fuck high voice and P3MC sounds like he sleeps 1 hour each night at best. It's annoying to hear, especially in P4G where the added scenes sound very different from the rest.

kek it sounded more like a really bad keanu reeves impression to me. the high pitched yosuke thing seems more like an attempt to emphasize the fact that he's the resident retard in spinoffs rather than as a way to differentiate himself between voice actors since P3MC could've just been a deeper voice like they did with adachi and yu instead of the mess we have now.

The thing is, he also sounds like that in the added scenes in P4G even though he's literally the only playable character with a brain, so that makes it even weirder.

Now, to be fair, the P4 crew as a whole ain't exactly the sharpest crayons in the box.

True, I see it more as Yosuke being socially awkward for a bunch of reasons and getting bullied by the entire town over it. That makes his insecurities and his own shadow make a lot more sense too. If the MC was completely removed from the game Yosuke would have easily been the protagonist, and that's exactly why he's portrayed as an idiot in the spin-offs and adaptations when Yu can speak for himself. You could just keep Yu, Yosuke, Chie and Teddie in the game and remove the rest and the amount of braincells in the group wouldn't change.

Currently playing hypnospace, and it's neat, though I feel like most of the hype surrounding the game has died out. Currently on the last part where you try to archive all of the pages and learn about stuff. It surprisingly hit me when Zane had gotten hacked and died, though I'm unsure who hacked him. I think it might have been either the dumpster, Jessica (even though I doubt she's real), or Tim (which I doubt since they don't interact with each other at all).

Shadows are just exaggerations of the characters based on how people see them. And he's seems more relevant because he's the one who talks and investigates and as the MC you just have to pick "yes" or "no" in some of the important cutscenes. That's the reverse once the MC can talk in the spinoffs which is why I said that Yosuke could have been the MC himself at this point.

No. I'll give you this, Yosuke shitting on best boy Kanji did get fucking annoying. As for the Izanami 4D Chess shit, if anything, I'd cut out the Izanami part entirely and just keep the story focused on everyone's favorite incel Adachi. I know it's practically a meme at this point that we fight god, but this is the one persona game where I would've been fine if it literally just ended with Adachi. Game explains that Adachi almost destroys the world because an evil god thought it'd be funny. You even get a cheeky end credit scene of them congratulating you for beating "their game", but playfully warning you that another god'll come along and fuck things up again, maybe alluding to the fact that it's already happened 3 times. Then, they wonder if y(o)u'll be the one to stop the next god or if another silent protaganist will come along and save the day. Roll credits.

>honestly have my expectations on the floor for smt5 after the last 2.
Com'on. 4 and Apoc weren't as bad as many people say. Yeah, I can recognize that the designs of the guest artists are out of tune with the general aesthetics of the game and that Doi's designs are generic, if not outright forgettable. But the story of the fourth installment feels worthy of a SMT game. In the case of Apocalypse, although it was the result of internal fights and disagreements with the og's regarding the direction and tone of the story (giving them the opportunity to make whatever Apoc was…). Compared to 4, it has an excellent gameplay, not to say that it is the culmination of the evolution of the " press turn" and an upgrade to the "smirk" mechanic(that in 4 he felt kinda useless), but, the story is a típical anime premise. Its hard to accept that Kaneko is passing the torch to Doi, but that's the way it is.

About the remaster… Its a scam. Better play the ps2 ver.

What are some atmospheric, non-animu styled Western visual novels, similar to VTMB Coteries of New York?

No. 148315

Red Embrace Hollywood!!! This game is amazing and very much inspired by VTMB. It does include romance, but it's like 40% of plot at best (and maybe you can avoid it, though I have only done one playthrough). The only downside is that it's difficult to uncover different endings/routes, since they are all dependent on gazillion answers. If you get the android version, it also has a nasty bug which makes it suddenly revert to the demo version. On the itch.io people posted about sidestepping the issue I think. I didn't know and it happened to me - it's not patched at all, so maybe go with a computer version if it's not a problem for you.
There is also an earlier game called Red Embrace, but it's strictly BL so I haven't played it yet (you can play as a woman or man in REH). Also a free short vn RE Mezzanine is upcoming, though it looks much less low budget than the main titles. For free though it's hard to expect the same level of polish. It's supposed to be an intro to a latter game in the RE series.

On another note, can you give a review of the VM visual novels? I've been wanting to play them, so I'm curious to find out more!

That's the reason imo, just like anon said they made Flynn and Nanashi androgynous for the female fans they know they have, and I wouldn't be surprised if that's also the reason why they added Rin in Catherine Fullbody while we're at it. I think the DeSu2 remake collector edition came with a body pillow with Yamato on it in Japan, they 100% know they have female fans.

If he's drawing on angelic motifs, Law in SMT has been associated with androgyny.

No. 148489

>>148387
The ones writing the game probably want to bring new things to the table, but you know how Atlus is with pandering to coomers only, so they just do it in a subtle manner. So at least you have an androgynous lead instead of a regular looking male one, like the other anon said there's Rin in Catherine who's a male, even if he still looks like a girl or even in P5R with Akechi acting like he acts (and P4's possibly deleted gay route). Maybe I'm wrong, but I can sense that someone wants to push Atlus to pander to other fans too and get out of their "comfort zone" and usual formula.

No. 148501

In Catherine Fullbody's case I wouldnt say Rin is that obvious given how the original game tries to seem realistic with its characters. The trans character is just trans and not some magical woman or some shit, and the human characters have normal backstories so Rin being part of a video game that seem at first to pander to mostly normal straight grown men at first would surprise me. Even the way Vincent's bisexuality is handled reminds me way more of fujoshi complaining about Atlus not making Yosuke or Akechi romance options and Atlus answering directly to this.

I just beat Pokemon Shield. It was easy, but the game was made with the exp share in mind unlike XY so my pokemon weren't too overleveled. But it was super short. I beat it effortlessly in three days, or 23hours of gameplay. Why did Game Freak stopped giving a fuck about actual dungeons, puzzles and long, labyrithic routes?

XY had a pretty big region with a few things to explore and do, and Sun/Moon still wasn't as short as SwSh, and in previous games you had side-quests like the contests in RSE and DPPT, the sports minigames in HGSS, the battle train not being locked behind post-game in BW, add to this the Hollywood stuff and the tournaments in BW2. And there were actual dungeons too, even if they weren't big. You talked about Withney's Miltank but in that game I also remember having to actually use my brain to solve the puzzles in the ice cave as a kid.

I know it's old at this point but has anyone played Octopath Traveller? I've put a few hours into it and uh it's kinda dissapointing? Does it get to a point where it gets a bit more elevated?

I really like both of them. I recommend pirating or buying Lobocorp on sale and then playing Ruina after if you enjoyed Lobocorp. They're both extremely different in terms of gameplay but the latter has a lot of callbacks to the previous game

Belated reply but everything does get more interesting as you go, or at least I thought so. It's been a while but the biggest problem I had was how the characters seemed like their own remote islands in the stories. No one really interacts in any meaningful way.

That dev team saved their incredibly terrible story for Bravely Default 2 apparently.

God, I still haven't finished Bravely Default 2 because the story sucks so much. BD 1 was only able to be interesting because the characters were likable but in BD2 everyone is either boring or insufferable.
Elvis, specially, just grinded my gears he's so annoying. Seth and Gloria are both extremely boring, specially Gloria, even Agnès manages to be more charming. And then there's Adelle, who's actually pretty cool and has an interesting twist but is somewhat wasted because her story arc really isn't about her at all.

Ok so I've just bought Mass Effect Legendary Edition to marathon when I've got some time off and I'm tempted to give Andromeda another try again after finishing the original trilogy. When I last played it I was really disliking the combat. I hate the lack of classes and prefer the cover based shooting of the originals compared to the jetpack fuckery of Andromeda. Not only that but Ryder seemed like pretty weak character with less room to roleplay than Shepard. The supporting cast also don't seem as interesting but I understand part of that is my autistic allergy to anything new. I really want to like Andromeda though. I want the whole Mass Effect story as I read the books and comics too, desperate for any crumb of lore. Is it worth putting up with? Is it just one of those games that have a slow start?

I'm really excited for Monster Hunter Stories 2. I have a soft spot for the first one on 3DS and the demo feels like a better version of that. The character designer is really cute too and being able to change your hair/make up whenever is nice. I love that you can change armor color as well! There's also a bit of gacha with the egg hatching and I enjoy the turn based combat because I suck ass at regular Monster Hunter.

I wouldn't recommend the Switch Lite because the Switch's joycons are known to sometimes have issues with drifting in some cases. If this happens with a normal Switch you can just replace the joycons with new ones or another type of controller, but in the Switch Lite's case you'll need to replace or repair the entire thing.

If the regular edition is out of stock, wait for a resupply. Also don't be afraid of cheap third party controllers if you're playing docked, they always last longer than a name brand joycon.

Animal Restaurant maybe? (Pic related) It's very cute but it might get boring after a while if you play it too much

This is fucking awful. I hate that companies have the gall to put on a feminist façade and then do this kind of shit behind the scenes.
I wish game journalists would spend more time exposing actual sexism like this, instead of just complaining when a character is "too sexualized".

>>153289 I don't think you should let incidents like this put you off game development, otherwise things will never get better.
Like that other anon said, you could try going the indie route if you want to keep your distance from corporate culture.

Picked up Bravely Default again from where I left of (I think I'm about 1/3). How do other nonnies feel about it? I never really managed to get into it but I can't quite figure out why?

You remind me that I bought Bravely Default and Bravely Second years ago and never touched them. I should play them as soon as I'm done with Pokemon Shield and Virtue's Last Reward.

it's an older, browser-based text adventure game i played early or mid 2000s that starts out with a mad-scientist-ish character who kidnaps you to the island and just makes it his thing to do that to people, explaining the other npcs on the island. i think it had some moderate popularity as there was a market system or so with other registered users that set it apart from the single-player shorter text games, so it's killing me that i cant find it. if it turns out im not going crazy making things up, i'll let you know if i find it.

I've been recommended to try Siberia though. Maybe that's worth a shot?

I'm going to assume you've already played Ace Attorney! If you liked that, Ghost Trick (not PC but emulators exist and it's a really good game!) is also very fun!
Recettear is a fun casual game that you might enjoy. You hire heroes to go into dungeons (you control them in the dungeon crawler section) and kill monsters for loot, then you sell the loot in your shop for a profit, it goes surprisingly deep and you can be as efficient as you want or just have fun scamming the npcs.

bell chimes for gold is a shorter otome. they're all oyaji though, but it was cute for what it was. there's a NSFW version you can buy on their site, but i haven't played it so you can look at vndb for tags if you're worried about the content. your turn to die is a mystery/horror jrpg that you can find on vgperson's site. if you know japanese, i recommend playing the original version on nico for the comments. love how they've all collectively agreed on nicknaming shin/sou kuso. and their thirst comments whenever keiji appears kek

Not at all imo. I never spent a dime on that game and some of my red itens I got from events, quests and dungeons. You can get free diamonds everyday in the shop and use them to buy itens you don't get in the dungeons. Exclusive skins later appear in the skin shop where you can buy using the skin tickets you buy with diamonds.
Unless you really want certain itens, I don't see much of a reason to spend money on it.

Since we're talking about emulators, old games and nds, I recommend for anyone interested, Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and its sequel Last Window: The Secret of Cape West for nds, I played it on an emulator years ago.
It's a point and click with some puzzles. You are former detective and now salesman Kyle Hyde searching for your former partner Brian Bradley.
Some mystery here and there, the dialogues are fun, I don't know if the looks are for everyone but that's exactly what made me interested in the game in the first place.
I guess if you ever played 999 or ace attorney, you might like.

I used to play and mained a norn too. Storywise, I noped out around the time the first Queen's Jubilee decided to flush what little character development Logan got. A little later on, there was the Kessex tower event with drunk Kasmeer and Kasmeer's voice actor seeming like she was embarrassed of the whole thing.
It's only ever going to be humans with a dash of sylvari until GW3 if that ever happens. Players seem to favor the human race (bonus points for human female with that one kpop face preset) and before the big dev culling, Anet employees seemed to prefer salad.

It wasn't my exact breaking point with the game but the Heart of Thorns beta showed me the game was going a direction I wasn't interested in. The only real regret is that I missed out on mounts and didn't get to craft a Nevermore.

>world's end club

i feel like all my online friends hyped those games but now no one ended up getting either of them. have any of you gotten them? thoughts?

>tloz skyward sword (switch version)

i barely played any zelda games except for botw, which i loved. aside from that i only ever finished minish cap and played a few hours of those terrible ds games back in the day. is this a remake mostly for people who loved the original version or would a newbie like it too?

for reference, i'm notoriously shitty at videogames (i play everything on easy, have REALLY bad hand/eye coordination) and i hate grinding. games i enjoyed the past few years are tales of games (except for zestiria, fuck zestiria), the zero escape series, persona 5 and fe3h. also the entire danganronpa series but i'm not komaeda anon i swear currently playing nier automata and that's enjoyable too.

with some fixes. it's much more "plot heavy" (for a Zelda game) than BOTW and doesn't allow you to do whatever you want. It does introduce some BOTW concepts like the stamina gauge.
