It is indeed an old flash game, there are videos on it that are over a decade old.
I remember playing it on the official site and there was also a spin-off with characters from the devs' other game series (La-Mulana). It's becoming a bit of a Coffee Stain Studios situation, where the meme game gets more attention than the "serious" one, I guess.

>mfw trying to sideload games in vr for HOURS and keep getting errors
"Not enough memory to run this game" or the shit crashes my headset and I have to turn it off or oculus knows it's modded and screeches at me until I uninstall. At least I can get some games to work but I wanted custom beatsaber songs..
Thank god they make sideload pretty idiotproof it's just some of the apk themselves that dont work I think because I googled my issue with friday night funkin and tons of people can't play it either. I feel retarded though like somebody smarter and better with computers could get it to work though
Red dead redemption 2
Horizon zero Dawn
Horizon forbidden west
God of war
God of war ragnarok
Zelda: breath of the wild
I haven't! That's on my list bc everyone keeps telling me it's the best game ever.>>295429>2002
I have Horizon Forbidden West but I couldn't get into it. Maybe I should play the first one first?
Definitely play horizon zero Dawn first, even if it’s just for the story. The gameplay was really fun and I loved the arsenal of weapons, coming up with tactics to take down large enemies was great and finally being able to take down thunderclaws felt like such an accomplishment.
If you can find a demo or get it on sale (assuming you have expendable cash), it might be worth a look.
Seeing someone call AC brilliant is both jarring and comforting.
Look into FF15, star wars jedi fallen order, far cry series, the witcher 3, tomb raider. I’m hesitant to recommend nier automata and replicant because of the replayability factor it’s not necessary obvi.
I don't know about 'brilliant' but the first few games were still pretty good stealth adventures.
I quit playing after 3 though because of how the plot went. And I'm not interested in pirates or france or the other ancient civ stuff that came after.
Why jarring? >>295846
I tried playing the older games and I hate the controls. I prefer the newer games, which I know is an unpopular opinion.

hogwarts legacy kept crashing with a corruption error (ps4), I uploaded my save files to the cloud, tried every single fix I could find, even logged into an old save on my character and could play for a good 10 mins before I eventually got the bluescreen again. been two days trying to fix it and I finally gave up and am re-installing it.
so pissed, my PC is stuck in a reboot loop too so I'm trying to fix that or I would have been playing this shit on steam a month ago.
has anyone else had this issue? apparently heaps of people have just wanted to ask you nonas if you did and how did you fix it? I have a bad feeling it's going to happen again.
$100AUD for a glitchy crashing game, I am trying very hard not to seethe.

I finally replayed the kingdom hearts 1.5+2.5 and felt so nostalgic kek
I found Kingdom hearts 3 yesterday but didnt buy it because I saw trailer and few gameplay and it looked (to me) like shit,like all the soul was sucked from it especially Riku turned yo Noctis 2.0. Has anyone here played it? Is it good? Have I been an idiot for calling it trash Because Riku's design was downgraded(for me)?

just stumbled over this game and it looks very cute, but i wonder if there's troon shit in it. https://store.steampowered.com/app/2209900/Moonlight_Peaks/
KH3 was trash, and this is coming from someone who played all of the other games (even the Ds, PSP and the PC online thingy too). You're right with saying that all the soul was sucked from it. Visually it's very bad, they fixed some lighting here and there later but it's still very odd and plastic looking. Some characters are straight up creepy (like Mickey and Hercules), I get that this was a new engine for them but they had plenty of time, but of course this is Nomura we're talking about, the one who halted FF15's production for 10 fucking years (and is still salty about it).
The story is a convoluted anti-climatic mess. It was the final chapter for the Xehanort saga but it just felt so weak. You'd expect this big flashy final fight but it's not what happens, instead it's an edgy weird dream-like shit you won't understand unless you paid attention to every little detail about some spin-off you forgot about. The Disney worlds are laughable and feel like bad adverts for the latest cashgrab Disney movie.
>>297347>The story is a convoluted anti-climatic mess.
They had one job holy shit. This sucks because replaying KH1 the character development was so neat and the ending made me tear, KH2 was finally finding Riku and that ending was so perfect. The fact that they can't even manage to pull another emotional story/ending in KH3 is such bs. Though honestly not sure what would they add? I remember the convoluted "but akshully"s in other KHs and hated it so much. You have no idea how thankful I am for this confirmation because I was this close buying it next week, I'd rather keep KH2's ending as the last one in my mind.
>course this is Nomura we're talking about, the one who halted FF15's production for 10 fucking years (and is still salty about it).
Every time I remember he wanted to make FF15 a musical I die laughing. Though with how lackluster the game turned out maybe it would've been better? If memory serves Ignis' VA sings kekSorry for esl

I'm so fucking tired of modern games being this big
AC is frequently shat on in gaming communities>>295846
I didn't play a lot of AC tbh for, the buggy mess that was unity turned me off but I still want to try Unity and Origins.
I feel you anon. I'm someone who has only played KH1 and KH2 and I felt the same way you did when playing them. KH1's character development was nicely done for what it was and I still tear up when I get to the ending kek. And KH2 though felt a bit dumb in the writing department, still managed to get me to tear up with the ending seeing how Sora was finally able to reunite with Kairi and Riku and just watching them be together. Honestly the game should've ended there but we all knew that wasn't gonna happen because of how popular the series was at this time.
When KH3's official release date was announced, I remember not feeling all that excited. My hype for the series had been on a huge decline by the time it was officially confirmed and when the game came out, I had no desire to go out and get it. Still haven't played it and after spoiling myself, I don't regret not purchasing day one because from what I've seen, it's just a bunch of BS.>>297347
The game definitely feels lifeless from what I've seen in gameplay videos. The worlds just feel dead if that makes sense?
>This was the final chapter for Xehanort
When I learned that this was the closing saga for Xehanort "The Seeker of Darkness" saga and they'll be moving onto a new chapter, I noped the fuck out. Look at all the shit they put the fans through with this mess of a story for the last 10+ years, do you really want to potentially endure another 10+ years of this bullshit? No fucking thank you.
If you manage to find it for a good price somewhere you could get it just to see how it ends (like I did) but what I meant to say is don't expect too much. >>297347
Samefag, I forgot to add some more things I don't like about the game. There are no Final Fantasy characters, like at all. One of the things that made KH unique was the weird mix of Disney and FF + original characters. For some reason they decided to not put them in and do only Disney instead.
The designs for the protags are a huge downgrade. Riku is Noctis, Sora's hair just gets awfully spikier and Nomura's autistic hyperfixation was now PLAID so both designs had to have it.
Sora's character development gets erased. Instead he's just an idiot giggling and spouting repetitive bullshit most of the time.
Spoiler for the secret ending it's a sequence with new characters called Verum Rex, but here's the thing. Every character that appears is a copy of FF15's cast. Nomura didn't get over it and decided to just make the same characters but in KH, which is bad but hilarious at the same time. The Noctis copycat looks like a do not steal oc.
Lastly KH4's trailer already exists and I don't know what the fuck they're doing anymore.

Have anyone tried Death Stranding? Did you enjoy it?
I was thinking of playing it because
>i preger playing good story-heavy games over the gameplay

I love games like Disco Elysium story-wise and/or something dystopian.

The story was a clusterfuck in true kh fashion but the gameplay was enjoyable imo. It's the hardest to master and it feels a lot more finnicky. I cleared all the hardest bosses in kh2fm and bbsfm when I was younger but I couldn't clear the data fights in kh3, I'll probably attempt it when I get more free time.
I honestly don't think it was utterly soulless besides the Frozen world, but it's a shame there were no ff characters. Fwiw I'm usually not a fan of disney at all and KH is the only disney related media I consoom. I just love the KH cheese. That said character wise Sora was the weakest in KH3, including Riku so if you're in it for the story it's not that worth I suppose.

Rune Factory 4 is on PS+ and even though I have almost 300 hours with the game on 3DS I've found myself playing it again and STILL finding and learning new things about the game. There's just so damn much to do. I love the farming, I love the crafting, I love taming cute monsters, I love making optimal building for my companions, and lastly I love my wife Clorica.
WAIT WHAT. I want to say can Nomura please move on but then again his "ideas" now are all going around the same old things, whether it's the remakes or this bs.

Anyone played Fear and Hunger? I absolutely adore this game despite how difficult it is, and all the weird shit in it.
I liked 12, but I played the original version back in the day where you aren't forced into classes. People say Penelo and Vaan are annoying but they're just the viewpoint characters, I think they were cute. And Balthier is the best. And a political story was a change of pace.
I bought 15 but never started it. I really don't feel like it either.
I don't care about 16. It feels dark? But I haven't really watched the trailers.
I just don't think I can ever forgive SquareEnix for what they did with Eidos.
terrifying nona i literally just downloaded this
guess this is a sign to start it and stop fucking around

I wouldn't say it's nonstop but in essence, yeah.>>297789
Have you seen Nosramus? He's even prettier than the dark priest, imo. Picrel.
I'll watch the LP whenever the guy I'm watching gets along to it. But I'm really not interested enough to buy it myself. Don't have a Switch anyway.
The design of 2's MC always put me off. He's so generic but also wearing such ugly clothes. And I already know the two main girls turn into a harem thing.
I really don't see how people could think it's less anime, it is just so obviously a JRPG. From the designs to the dumb character tropes and interactions.
apparently ffxv was a buggy mess when it came out but now it has a cult following. it's very popular with fujos and yumejos too. I got it a few years after release when it was on sale so I didn't have any issues, the game felt complete to me plus all the dlc was out by then.
my personal opinion is that it's a great game and I had lots of fun playing it - one of my favorite games actually. but I haven't played any of the other final fantasy games so maybe that's why I think so highly of it kek
File: 1684778403833.jpg (148.42 KB, 1800x1252, 1673675337399.jpg)
kek it's way too scary for me. i spent all night reading the lore though, which is very much my thing (i love eldritch/grimdark horror).
i'm going to give termina a try instead because i dig the vague danganronpa vibes, it doesn't seem as terrifying, and marina is apparently a dude

>>297959>but I haven't played any of the other final fantasy games so maybe that's why I think so highly of it kek
I was reading your post and thought to myself 'is this Nonna'd first FF game?' kek. See I'm really happy you enjoyed it and it's your favorite game, but believe me when I tell you that a game 10 years it's senior (FFXII) does everything way better. When we got it we were like is it? Where are the cool designs? Interesting side quests? Hello? Anything? The closest thing to soul-full was knowing more about Cidny and her reason for why she's interested in cars.
Ngl the concept of brotherhood/sacrife was REALLY attractive for the secret fujo inside of me, but ugh I'm sorry Nonny
I was gonna spill my guts on why it flopped. I really wanted it to be good and successed,but stupid director was too busy trying to make a universe and shoving noodles advertisements, his other game is FF type-0
(Goddamm this place opens my appetite for ranting about old stuff lol)
File: 1684801407231.jpeg (114.92 KB, 970x640, ffxv snack break.jpeg)
I did try playing ffviii and struggled a lot with the combat system so I gave up kek. I have ffix and ffvii sitting in my steam library untouched.
for me I liked ffxv because it felt like going on a roadtrip with friends. I liked the main characters, the scenery, driving around then cooking and camping with the boys, the soundtrack, the dialogue and how the boys banter with each other (the way they moved around and interacted almost felt like I was playing with real people rather than ai), plus there was tons of minigame and postgame content (fishing, photography, chocobo races, pinball, gambling, challenge dungeons, etc). the ending absolutely broke me too.
the only things that really stood out to me (as a ff noob) as bad were the grindy soulless fetch sidequests plus the way some cool characters were neglected (luna, aranea, and ravus especially) - and having to play the dlc just to learn more about the main characters/villain. oh also the pitioss dungeon was an abomination but luckily it's optional post-game content.

Yeah, F&H1 is terrifying. Every time the crow mauler
enters the dungeon I freak the fuck out, kek. But I still force myself to play it anyway, for some reason I almost feel like I'm cheating by watching playthroughs or reading the wiki. I'm saving Termina for after I beat the first game, although I'm dying to know what's up with Daan. Not thrilled about the Marina thing however.
File: 1684826169442.png (1.05 MB, 1534x1472, 1671139206108.png)
i never even got as far as the crow mauler kek. got captured by a guard and got beaten to death
. i might return to it after i finish termina…which is great, by the way. i'm still on day one (so i haven't seen a lot of daan) but he gives me prissy ice king vibes.
the marina thing definitely sucks but i can look past it pretty easily. game's full of crazier things after all

After playing FFXV, playing oldies becomes harder and harder since it's alot more beginner-friendly and everything is actually explained kek. I recommend that you watch cutscenes gameplays like I did
because the grind is so bad.
Totally agreed on pros and cons. But in my humble opinion they threw the ball on the writing which made fair amount of FF fans rage quit the franchise. One thing specifically was really early but we knew we were fucked; So you have a gunslinger, Butler/Chef/Assassin/driver/Nanny all in one, buff body guard with giant sword and shield AND a magical prince, right? Remember when Ravus found Noctis and gang in one of the military bases? Remember when he bitch punched him that he hit Regalia? His gang didn't do shit and stayed in their places just standing there.. wouldn't Ignis pull him back behind him or Gladio to jump infront of him or something? That stuck like sore thumb and so out out of character, which is the selling point iirc, 4 bros looking out for each other and all. (And many many more things jfc all memories are flooding back in)
Though to be fair I played it day one until Gladio's episode release then ditched it because it was buggy as hell, extremely slow loading and loads every 1 min for 1 min and was so bareboned. But I watched the rest of the episodes and maybe they patched the game enough for it to be good? The cult following thing? I legit hope do because I don't think I'll like the new one.>oh also the pitioss dungeon was an abomination

I was going to restart ffviii and just follow along with a 100% achievements guide, so I can focus on enjoying everything and not getting mad about the combat.
yeah there was a bit of bad writing choices especially in the main story so I can see why some don't like the game. for me all the dlc worked perfectly - in current year you should have no issues playing it. I played it on my older pc via steam and did the dlc for prompto, ignis, gladio and ardyn. I will say gladios dlc is my least favorite out of all of them, he is not exactly a complex character lol. the rest were definitely worth playing and gave backstories for all the characters.

Cause the seasonal stories are just as important as the main expansions these days lore wise.

The remake only covers like less than a third of the story, adds some dumb shit, and who knows when it will get finished. Lowpoly has it's own charm.
The way FF7 was originally translated is a shitshow. You can easily get confused, lose nuance, characters' moods and personalities can get misrepresented… So I'd definitely advise modding it if you want the best experience with the original. Thing is though it's going to take some legwork:https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Final_Fantasy_VII
I recommend the remake. It adds in some new elements, but it's faithful to the original. The drawback is you're gonna have to wait years for the other 2 chapters to come out.

You should know that FF7 Remake isn't exactly a "remake". It's kind of a sequel disguised as a remake. Personally I would recommend modding the original game using the 7th Heaven mod loader, it automates most of the process.
I tried replaying the original ff7 a while back and it was a pain. Turn based fighting is not it any more. Instead I watched a video explaining the entire story line. The differences between the original and the remake makes it worth knowing the original story line first, so you can understand the changes they made and the meaning behind certain things. Plus if you end up wanting to play crisis core it helps to know the original events imo.>>298712
I'm sorry but to me this looks worse than the polygons kek
???? like I said it was a replay. I grew up playing the old final fantasy's and can not do the grinding anymore, it's not fun. The storyline is what holds up nowadays.>>298871

I also second 9, always been my favorite.
It's such a charming game with interesting chars imo and embodies a true fantasy. Battle system is a pretty straightforward turn based system so requires forethought and a brain unlike recent ffs where you just smash attack and done. Also has some fun side quests and hidden secrets.

>>298220>Let's fucking goooo that's enough to get me back lol
Yeees please do! So many people don’t know about these updates (the patched the game with new things all the way to 2019!) and keep pointing out issues about the gameplay that have been added. I guess it was too late since people played it at launch, got disappointed and never touched it again. It literally feels like a whole new game when you switch between the characters. There’s so many new combat techniques to learn that are unique to each character.
I’m gonna be really annoying and list what I think are great additions they made to ffxv here:>unlock the ascension ability to switch between party members (you have to unlock it, only after that do you get the menu in pic related) >episode ignis, episode prompto and episode ardyn are really good and complete the overall story experience >regalia type-d fucking monster truck is super fun (ask Cindy for it) >new story scenes in chapter 12 about the Astrals >new story scene in chapter 5 with the bros discussing Ardyn>regalia type-f, a literal flying car. So now you can fly around the map in the sky. (Ask Cindy for it). >new car types and and character switch comes with new voicelines between the bros

NTA, but I'm having a lot of fun. Finally, Capcom debuted a SF game that wasn't absolute dogshit. World Tour and the Battle Hub is fun. Arcade is fun.
Depends, because if you play Edelgard's route, the effort on the dev's part to sell her to you as a waifu character is pretty pervasive so romance does end up being palpable element of that route whether you're into her or not.>>300705>>300716
How will 9 be for somebody going backwards from 12? I know that 12's system was an evolution of the ATB system, and I worry that I won't find 9's system engaging anymore when I start it.
BTW is 9 significantly less coomery than 12? I try not to look into the characters too much before starting a game because I don't want to get spoiled, and Fran and Ashe's designs were both disappointing to me.

! Keep us updated with your thoughts. I might be biased since ff9 is one of my favorite games, but I don't think any character is poorly written. If I had to choose one maybe Quina kek. All of the women are well written and 3 dimensional imo, even the badass ones, picrel.

nonnas… I don't know if I can take it anymore I need the new harvest moon now… I need to sit and mindlessly play for hours.
I was gonna use MK1 to test my fighting game skills but alas, the new duo system has made it all too complicated a game to start for a fighting game noob.
Cool trailer anyway.

Vintage story has a bit of a difficult learning curve, it looks like Minecraft but has a different way of progressing which is looking at your handbook most of the time or videos to be honest because you have no fucking idea how to make pottery, but once you get through that hurdle it's very comfy and less aggravating.

Kek dream on, that ain't happening. Why do you even want more lazy remakes after what downgrades SJR and SMT3HD were from their originals? Expectations in hell for the 4th P3 release. Just download a ps2 emulator on your phone.>>301399
It's a downward spiral
I'm not a Persona player but if they added a female protagonist in a PSP port, that's probably because the PSP was very popular with otome fans.
If the remake doesn't come out on the Switch, which appears to be the new popular otome gaming platform, then your chances of playing as the female MC are extremely low. On the other hand, if a Switch version is confirmed, then it's very likely they'll add her in that version (as DLC or otherwise).

I will be checking it out. Kitana and Mileena look good. They ditched the coomerish outfits in the last game which is cool.
they couldn't care less about what's popular with otome fans. it's very
unlikely she'll be added given their track record. I wasn't joking at all when I said it'd be less surprising for her to be a love interest than an mc option, that's how atlus moves. and their dlc extends no further than $100 worth of costumes and music from older games, when they feel like adding a feature people care about they lock it to a rerelease of the entire game.
We're going to have a P4 remake someday, and they'll make the Yosuke romance option a paid DLC and the devs will justify it with "at the time of the original P4 we weren't ready to tackle this topic just yet (see that one interview about Catherine Fullbody and Vincent being bisexual all along
) but it wasn't in the original and we wanted the remake to be faithful to the original! That'll be 1000¥ + taxes!"

Okay Harvest Moon nonnies, tell me this: If I want to get a Harvest Moon game, which one should I start with? I own a DS and I like to own physical media, so I'm aiming towards a GBA or DS Harvest Moon game, but if there are really spectacularly better alternatives I'll consider emulating(???), but I rather just own it. Not that emulating is difficult, I just want the cozy experience. I LOVE MY DS!

Capcom Declares That “Simply Translating Games Developed Under Japanese Norms Can End Up Hurting Users”

As more and more in Japanese game developers kowtow to the ever-growing censorious demands of Western markets, Capcom have revealed that their in-house localization efforts work off of the belief that “games developed under Japanese norms can end up hurting users.”

RELATD: ‘Dynasty Warriors’ Developer Koei Tecmo Creates Dedicated Quality Assurance Team To Handle “Everything From Functional Bugs To Local Culture And Social Issues”
Like Koei Tecmo earlier this week, the Mega Man developer’s editorial intent was recently brought to public attention by Twitter user @Mondblut1984, who discovered the information on the ‘social sustainability’ section of the company’s official Investor Relations page.
@Mondblut1984 makes a discovery about Capcom
Archive Link @Mondblut1984 via Twitter
First published sometime around January 2022 (per the Internet Archive), the page in question details Capcom’s commitment towards “serving as a responsible and trusted member of society”, specifically in regards to their “relationship with customers”.
Therein, Capcom provided insight into how this relationship factored into their game development, with the company behind the Street Fighter franchise noting that their attentions were focused on two elements: “in-game purchases” and “localization and culturalization”.

While their rather standards efforts towards the former area are best summed up by their declaration that, “In principle, we minimize gacha elements in the mobile games we develop; in our home video games, we provide any content required to enjoy the full game free of charge, while offering some additional content at low cost,” it is in their plan for the latter that Capcom showed their hand.
“Capcom games are enjoyed worldwide,” they explained. “In the fiscal year ended March 2022, the percentage of home video games sold overseas was 83.1%. Naturally, translation (localization) of video games developed in Japanese is required so that game players around the world can enjoy them.”
“The volume and importance of localization is increasing year after year due to factors such as improvements in game machine performance, support for online gameplay, and an increase in the number of languages accompanying a more diversified, global audience,” Capcom continued. “As such, Capcom’s localization team is involved in game development from the initial stages.”

“By carrying out localization concurrently with development, rather than following completion of the Japanese language version as had been done in the past, Capcom is able to launch games simultaneously around the globe,” write the Resident Evil developer.
Concluding their statement with a disappointing bombshell, Capcom happily informed potential business partners, “What is more, depending on the country, simply translating games developed under Japanese norms can end up hurting users unexpectedly due to historical, religious, or cultural differences. As such, we focus on employing staff from around the world to culturize the games so that they can be enjoyed by all, regardless of locale.”
I'm in the same boat as you nonnie
, do you have anything specific on your list yet? For me it's genshin I'm stuck on, but I've been thinking of returning to my backlog, just not sure what I should start with
I'm thinking dragon's dogma looks fun and I've seen some anons recommending it here before
You don't have to pay, but to get equipment to use in breach mode there's a gatcha element. And of course I got shit equipment from the easy to get packs and missed the early grind chance. There's a good walkthough out there though, so I might try again eventually.
I want to plat it cause I 100% HR and it's my husbando's
game, got all the achievements in the main game, even the hardest difficulty playthrough, but this is still so annoying. And so SE cash grab, it probably contributed to the series hiatus/selling off.

Capcom are in the right here. These nerds expect them to settle for a small subset of players (weebs) when they can rake in the cash appealing to everyone – and they have been. Picrel says it all.>>301644
I had a blast with Human Revolution in 2011 but ignored Mankind Divided for whatever reason. You're convincing me to give it a chance anon!
I really loved "Harvest moon DS" and "harvest moon tale of two towns". Harvest moon DS is a 2d game and while it is a more challenging game, it's very cute and nostalgic for me, and the music is great. Tale of two towns is a 3D game that has some pretty cute bachelor's in it (which the original havest moons where lacking IMO, they only ever had a lot of really cute bachelorettes). It's also a bit easier than the DS version.
I also really loved "harvest moon island of happiness". It's a good balance between the two I mentioned earlier, so maybe try that one first… Plus it has Vaughn…

Harvest Moon ds Cute has some really fun stuff, there's less to do in More Friends of Mineral Town but it has better husbandos imo. Sunshine Islands had really tedious game mechanics. Tale of two Towns is a visually pretty game but the I didn't like any of the characters and got bored quick.
I hate the calls for -back to coomer- outfits, male fighting game players are gross.
I saw a comment about being mad the new Tekken fighter has shorts under her skirt.

Finished Mafia Definite Edition last night and it's a fantastic remake, but man, that ending hurt even more than the original game.
ew. they've got skins for them anyways so what does it matter. why can't we have a toned down look in the base game, and if they need to coom and play simultaneously they can pay extra
we can have actual cool designs if we drop the moid-bait
Looks like they're remaking the FF7 games into a single mobile game? Idk how they'll implement it but it's apparently going to have gacha shit. I'm really interested in seeing more of Sephiroth's past but if they make it pay to play there will be no reason to not just emulate the original, even if they improve the graphics.https://en.ffviiec.com/pre-registration/
If enough people pre-register we all can get extra items kek
I'm super interested in it but I don't want to watch too much about it cause I want to go in as blind as possible.
Sci-fi plus create a character protagonist is right up my alley.
I can't wait. It's the kind of game I've always wanted to play.
The only thing I'm worried about is whether it's going to have ground vehicles, something like a rover or a dune buggy. Can't walk everywhere, plus it would increase immersion.

The main character in the new Fable is just a tranny self-insert. I'm pissed, Fable is one of my favorite game series and it's just ruined now.
it's the same for me, have been waiting for another game in space since the first two Mass Effect games. Still, will have the problem nona >>301964
has. A new computer will be needed, mine is still running on Windows 7 (and I like it and hate that I have to change that)>>302595
oh, why can't they just, employ women? All those years we had to fight to be part of the gaming world and not be seen as just someone that plays "to impress the boys" and now those troons get jobs that a woman should have had and ruin games that were really nice.
Kek same. I know western games take a lot to make and there are some excellent people behind them but they're all so similar, ugly and dull. I could take screenshots from the most popular western games (Horizon, AC, The Witcher, Elder Scrolls, God of War, Fable etc.), show them to someone who doesn't know that much about videogames and they'd think they're all from the same game. Some of them are good but the majority have no charm, they're just fixated on realism, self-inserts, politics and ugly ass designs (and uncanny game models) that look like they're made from the same Artstation-dwelling concept artist.

I hope I'm wrong because I was really hyped for this game. I wish we lived in a timeline where Bloodlines got sequels back in the 2000s.

doesn't look like a tranny to me, looks like an unattractive woman without any makeup/weird coomerized design. the chris troon seems to only be a level designer who is a recent hire so I assume he doesn't have much of a say in character design, in that case it's not his self-insert.
coomer scrotes are having a meltdown over it on twitter too as an added bonus, pic related tons of coomer moids in this tweets replies are whining because they aren't being pandered to.
probably buying this, idk shit about the game but me loves games where female characters are allowed to be a mess in terms of appearance, especially when their male counterparts look like unfuckable hobos
File: 1687024600682.png (153.86 KB, 783x490, 1673076280831.png)
I truly don't care if you think it's "scrotish", I've never seen a woman this ugly irl and I'm including women with health issues that altered their looks for the worse. I find her ugly and it's not even like I'm a hypocrite because I never, ever play games with ugly male protagonists because I especially don't want at ugly unga bunga looking men.
I can't imagine being this autistically upset over a video game. How hard is it to play games if they're good and fun like an normal person instead of seething about if the character is a supermodel?
I bet Elder Scrolls IV triggered
the fuck out of you too kek
No, I don't really care for this game in general, I don't play Western games and I doubt it'll be released in a console I have anyway. And my backlog is long enough as it is. I was curious about what this was all about and expected to find out the men seething about that new characters were exaggerating like when everyone was seething over the buff girl from The Last of Us 2 but I kind of get it in that specific case. The vast majority of real women don't look like that, not even slobs.
>I bet Elder Scrolls IV triggered the fuck out of you too kek
No clue what you're talking about, but I'm guessing it's a controversial game among fans or something like that?
there's a lot of middle ground between porny and fugly, anon. many people don't want to play nonbinary simulator 2023, not just porn addict scrotes.>>302812>Elder Scrolls IV triggered the fuck out of you too
oblivion came out in 2006
Same. I'm playing a game to step away from reality. I don't want to spend my free time playing as either boring caveman male fantasy protag #183862, or haggard "relatable" female protag who is uglier than anyone you can find IRL. If I'm paying $70 for a game, I better like the character I'm staring at for 45+ hours.>>302808
Imagine being able to play as the most attractive characters, willingly choosing to be an ugly bastard and judging women who choose any different.
>>302812>I bet Elder Scrolls IV triggered the fuck out of you too
Have you actually played Oblivion? It wasn't aiming for realism. All characters look cartoon-ish. You can craft a horror beyond human comprehension in the character creator if you min/max the sliders, but you can also make an attractive face, male or female.>>302813>No clue what you're talking about
What do we have here? Someone who hasn't played TES. Give it a try, anon. I promise you it's great.
>>302818>Give it a try, anon. I promise you it's great.
I seriously doubt I can. My laptop is on the verge of death, I only use it to go online, watch videos and play visual novels and I mostly have handhelds and Nintendo consoles. And as I said, I want to play games in my backlog first, they're mostly 3DS and Switch games.>>302817>If I'm paying $70 for a game, I better like the character I'm staring at for 45+ hours.
This is why Kojima gave Snake and Raiden a nice butt in MGS2. I appreciate it even more now that I see what the current trends are in video games.
diff anon, but I made a Khajit in Oblivion because I hated how ugly all the humanoid races were.
I wasn't gonna play Fable anyway cause I don't really like medieval fantasy but damn that is an ugly model. I self insert to much to deal with that.
File: 1687039295244.png (305.82 KB, 536x539, Untitled.png)
this is an extremely ugly character model. also it's very possible to make female characters who look average. as another anon said there's a pretty big middle ground between "coomerbait" and "hideous".

NTA but you have a pretty warped perception of what an average woman looks like, if you think your pic is "average". The other character looks average or below average to me (not "hideous") but maybe because you're not used to seeing women like that, you have higher beauty standards for other women. I see nothing wrong with her design.
It's pretty telling that scrotes don't give a single fuck about male characters being fugly but so many women itt are seething over a character that looks like any normal irl woman without any makeup or surgery. Why does it bother you so much having to see a single character (male or female) that isn't conventionally attractive? Ever think about that?
but many of us give a fuck about scrotes being ugly, how scrotes feel is none of my convern. is this representation for you?>>302864colgera

Well we'll see when it comes out. It's not coming to PS4 though and even though I'll probably have a new computer by then I don't really want to rebuy the base game.

Nonna, my pc runs every high-end videogame. I don't understand why you keep whiteknighting developers who, blantly speaking, scammed people into wasting money on an admittedly unfinished product and pulled a nevermind on their early promises. Id rather buy a bunch of decent, well-made videogames than waste 60$. Even Atomic Heart is better if you are into spending a lot on a triple-a game.

Not really, it's more similar to what you'd find in the retro games as in, it has sudden twists and changes in tone but it makes sense in context and doesn't seem too strange. Vague spoilers for a game that's not released yet but I've seen comparisons with Xenogears, which I haven't played. It was advertised as some boring GOT clone that took itself too seriously and then at some point it becomes your typical over the top animu JRPG bullshit that FF fans yearned for. And let's just say that I get why the game is banned in Saudi Arabia kek.
Pic unrelated I just love Firion so much.

Ok then more spoilers for FFXVI: There's no gay sex scene. Dion is gay and kisses his boyfriend on-screen at some point. No clue if it's a quick peck on the lips or if they're passionately making out for 5 minutes straight like some anons on /v/ said though. They adopt an orphan girl at some point to make it extra yaoi. There's a scene between Clive and Jill, we don't see them fuck but they're naked outside and hugging and all lovey-dovey after they do. Some people compared that to Cloud and Tifa allegedly fucking before the final dungeon in FF7 except way more in your face and in HD but I never finished that game so no clue if it's really that similar. I have no idea if seeing Clive's HD butt cheeks is also another reason why the game is banned. There's some villain who has sex with a shapeshifting creature so we see him eat out the blonde femme fatale character at first, who then shifts into another male character during or after that, and then into the guy's dead mother, in a scene that would make Freud come back from the dead. That scene is the most explicit I guess, it's just not subtle.
I agree they look pretty, but they just don't look like VTMB to me. They look like plain, dim environments with some fog. There's no exaggerated gothic architecture, no gargoyles everywhere for no reason, and everything looks super clean and sleek but also super stiff.
I was watching the E3 demo again and I think >>302641
is a pretty good guess for how it'll go if they do ever finish the game, too serious and too safe yet still misogynist and tone-deaf (check the newscaster audio at the beginning of vidrel, about how 15 women were found at an apartment above a massage parlour, being kept in there to be "used as sex slaves."
The news bits in the first game were mostly jokes about the in-game quests or references to other horror media, so where does that fit in?)
Anyway, Paradox doesn't even have the game listed on their website anymore so we'll see how it goes. I kind of hope they wait a while and just quietly drop it.

Nonas, can you give me PS4 game recs? P3RE isn't comming to Switch, so that means I have to buy an actual console now.
I haven't touched a Sony console in my life, so I don't know which games it has. Anything story-driven & that doesnt have 4k hyperrealistic graphics will probably tickle my fancy.
(eg of games I like that I think are on PS4: Ace Attorney, AITSF, TWEWY & Odin Sphere)
I don't want to buy an entire console for a single game, so I appreciate any suggestion

She looks like a normal fable character to me? Also shouldn't there be a male player character? If so, I see no reason for so many scrotes to complain I know the real reason is because most scrotes choose to play as the girl character because they are all secretly
I'm not a ps4 person, but I know Rune Factory 4 is on it, and the Tales of Series.>>304097
Omg, yes I'm so excited you can play as Daisy now.

Still have my copy of Twin Snakes and the 360 HD collection.
So did they have this ridiculously tight agreement with Sony for PS3 exclusivity with 4 or is it an engine thing why it was never ported?
I'm so sick of remaster/remake/reboot shit. Ok some

Didn't wanna create a video game pictures thread and since it's /m/ I hope anons will join me here in this little picture dump and question.
>What is your favorite worlds/sceneries/art direction in games you have played?
Personally I remember talking to anons here on lc about the charm in the dreamfall the longest journey aesthetic. I just love the visualization of a middle eastern looking city that's portrayed as modern and futuristic while keeping it's cultural architecture in combination with a female gazey cute 2000s outfit on the protagonist.
File: 1687732012652.jpeg (30.27 KB, 955x747, silent hill1.jpeg)
Silent hill is another one I love for its atmosphere. Never seen a single other modern game being able to replicate this vibe
File: 1687732122220.jpeg (231.64 KB, 1920x1080, rapture.jpeg)
Lastly bioshock has such a creative art direction that I barely see anymore. I don't think stylization should be sacrificed for photorealistic graphics.
File: 1687736153212.jpg (286.18 KB, 1920x1080, Destiny 2_20190511001132.jpg)
I love so much about Destiny's aesthetics but my favorite area is still the Dreaming City. I love that combo of weird architecture and plants and all the crystals.
File: 1687737561667.png (2.35 MB, 1920x1080, Destiny 2_20230310113016.png)
Vex stuff too, the alien cubes and circles mixed with the plants, wonder if we'll ever get to see Venus again.

And of course the Pyramid ship aesthetics, like alien ancient MesoAmerica mixed with an Ikea warehouse.
I love how varied the armor designs are too. And how there's so many shiny shaders.

samefag ffxv has some of my favorite scenery, I love how they mixed realism with fantasy in the landscapes. altissia was my favorite - loved feeling like I was in a magical version of venice. wind waker and twilight princess are honorable mentions too.

Samefag. Witcher 3 has a lot of beautiful settings but I particularly love Toussaint from Blood and Wine.
I also really loved the art and atmosphere of Hogwarts Legacy, specifically Hogwarts itself, but unfortunately found the gameplay lacking.
>>302602>I could take screenshots from the most popular western games (Horizon, AC, The Witcher, Elder Scrolls, God of War, Fable etc.), show them to someone who doesn't know that much about videogames and they'd think they're all from the same game
The same thing could also be said about a lot of east asian games, the fantasy anime (and very often coomerbait) style gets old fast.>>302845
They hate you because you speak the truth nonna. She's average or below which is very rare for female characters in video games but claiming that she's uglier than anyone you've seen IRL is wild lmao, probably a way to justify agreeing with moids>>304701

Any nonnies here play mobile mmos? I know a lot of people complain about the p2w and auto-play, but I'm just looking for something cute and sociable to fill in my time (I think I got nostalgia from Malpe Story on PC) I love logging in daily to claim rewards or do quests, it keeps me from grinding for too many hours.
So far I liked black desert mobile, but people don't really talk there. I'm thinking of going to play Tales of Wind.

I really love dishonored, that was one of the first games that made me realise how monumental game design is, the way all the maps and buildings were designed with so many ways in and different ways to explore will always stick with me

Shadow of the colossus for me. I spent hours grabbing onto hawks outside of the cave where the snake colossus was and admiring the scenery. The game had so many cute exploratory aspects to it.

Vagrant Story's art direction made a big impact on me when it came out 23 years ago. Both the atmospheric dark medieval setting and things like distracting assless shorts
File: 1687814793939.jpg (63.25 KB, 720x576, 10871403-castlevania-lament-of…)
Also the general aesthetic of Castlevania: Lament of Innocence. Lonesome, gothic, elegant. Character design by Ayami Kojima and music by Michiru Yamane. They deserve to work together on a HD graphics game.
One of the directors also worked on the original Deus Ex. And the main art guy also worked on Half-Life 2.
Have you played the sequel and Prey? They're pretty good too.

Lineage 2, mostly cause I spent my entire teenage years on it, but it's still very beautful to me. I spent lots of time exploring the scenery and environments.
I played Tales of Wind a few years ago, during release.
It's not worth it. It's VERY p2w and at first, you don't notice this because the game usually makes you log in in a new server (I think they make new servers every few weeks), and when they make a new server there's like a… level cap that goes away as days pass. So at first you will only be able to get to level 45, and then two days later, the cap will expand to level 50, and so on.
As the level increases, you will start to notice that whales get stronger rather quickly, while you get left behind.
This wouldn't be that much of a problem, if it weren't because guild wars happen every few days, they are random. So if your guild doesn't have any whales and you happen to fight against russians, you are gonna get fucked in the ass, kek.
In the end, it becomes frustrating. It's like you are playing for nothing, wasting your time trying to get good loot just to get wrecked by a russian player that dumped 500$ in the game.
As for the social aspect… eh. I got lucky and found a guild full of adults from my country, but I believe the majority of players are underage. We chatted through Telegram and Discord and liked the guild wars, until we got tired of whales wrecking our asses. Eventually, we stopped playing and the guild got closed.
Have you tried Aura Kingdom? I think they released an app, although the original MMORPG is for PC. I have always found someone to talk to there, people are usually friendly, to be honest. Maybe you could check it out. Whales never bothered me in that game.

Riven (1997). Absolutely amazing sense of texture, sound and presence in this game. It feels like a real place that you're visiting. Even newer games haven't gotten close.

Yeah, the atmosphere of VTMB is unmatched, my fave hub was the Downtown area
I'm thinking of getting:>Planet Zoo>Volcano Princess>Unheard - Voices of Crime
Any anons played these?
File: 1688140401686.png (8.98 KB, 666x160, vtmsteamsale.PNG)
it's usually included in the summer sale (and most other steam sales), so right now it's only ten bucks (USD).
oh, I played Volcano Princess! The art is lovely and cozy, there is a…weird admirer system, but otherwise the actual romance options are cute. There is dozens of endings. You probably won't be able to get a special one without following a guide or getting lucky, even if you are great at a minmaxxing stats. Debatably I don't really think it's very replayable past a 2nd playthrough because most of the game stays the exact same, with little secrets to find, unless you like stat grinding? As a little girl I played those weird stat sims on newgrounds though so I'm biased towards this type of shit.>>305664
I did finish it years ago. I like that the main character is a dumpster fire it's hilarious, and that my choices/skills felt like they mattered. My favorite parts were the side quests; hunting down a cryptid, the disco, etc. Also, it made me dislike communism more which I find funny cuz after finishing I found out it is actually a communism propaganda game. Again, it's mostly reading, but it felt a lot more immersive and atmospheric than usual visual novels.

I have a very casual interest in video games, and yet every year, like clockwork, my brain floods my limbic system with hormones that trick me into logging onto steam and buying no less than $75 worth of video games that I will play for just long enough to void their refund period. Here is what I have in my cart this year:
>Cyberpunk 2077>Artifact Adventure Garden>Jade Empire >Grand Theft Auto V>A Short Hike>The Frog Detective bundle>The Closing Shift>Eastshade
Tell me what I should remove from (or add to?) my cart. I love atmospheric games, cute soothing games, spooky games, and walking simulators.
Stray - be a cat explore a post apocalyptic civilization (linear, not so chill at times, short)
Cloudpunk - drive a taxi in a futuristic cyberpunk inspired sky-scape, get out and explore on foot occasionally (linear story, free exploring, pretty chill, sadly too short)
Spiritfarer - be on a boat, find friends, help friends, say goodbye to friends (linear story, chill)
don't let them make you miss out on an incredible game.
btw, my first run was logic (blue) and i sort of fell off of it and didn't finish, but my second one i went sensitivity (pink) and i really loved it, i was maximum chaotic and a hot mess express - a lot of clever writing, a ton of laugh-out-loud moments, great aesthetic and a banging soundtrack.
I was being hyperbolic for "it has pro-communist themes". Supposedly it's the one ideology in the game that is given relative grace and gravitas compared to how others are depicted - often satirically or with contempt (i.e., moralism) - except with a deep layer of irony. There's a certain character I won't go into because of major spoilers, but the narrative frames him as being a last bastion of conviction or even a bit of a martyr, and…it's ridiculous to me because the only actions he makes in the context to the plot makes him seem like a weak, fickle man to me.
Hah, I also wish I had some juicy dev gossip for you. All I have is that apparently the devs, or at least one, did actually willfully blunt/roast the communist themes to make it more palatable for its otherwise capitalistic market. Oh and considering the lightning in the bottle chaos in this game I am not surprised a lot of drama went down with the studio.
Anyway, yeah, you'll love this game regardless. It almost sounds made for you nonny
File: 1688241964443.png (314.23 KB, 647x443, wadanooooo.png)
A Short Hike is one of my favorite games in recent years.
Maybe rethink Jade Empire unless you are a huge fan of their old games, like outdated janky games, and love the setting. Heck, I loved KOTOR, but even back then I had trouble getting into JE. I can't even imagine playing it now…
Also, this is very, very off the cuff but maybe look into games like Wadanohara. I quite liked it and it's spooky/kind of fucked up, adorable, atmospheric (underwater and moody), and a walking sim.
I've heard the devs are "communist doomers", sort of post-left or something like that, so the mocking of what they see as failed movements and certain attitudes within the left makes sense.>>306070
Nonna, even if you disagree with the system you still have to make a living out of something. It's not hypocritical to make some money selling a product, and at the same time think that we should ditch money altogether (while knowing that's not possible yet). It's like hating radfems who hate female beauty standards but still wear makeup when they're socially required to do so because life/work/whatever is easier that way.

Picrel is my cart atm. I've been wanting to play the Nocturne remaster since it was released but I refuse to pay retail price for what's (apparently) a mediocre remaster. Also super hyped to play P3P, as I only ever played FES almost ten years ago
Nonna, please play the game because it sounds right up your street! It can be pretentious but it isn't afraid to poke fun at itself. Also my perspective on the games discussions of politics changed a lot when I realised it was made by Estonians and not some american commies kek.
It also has great replayability - more than worth it for the sale price!

Nonnas, what games/franchises would you recommend? I am all about worldbuilding, lore or just cute characters. I love it when games have detective/dystopian setting, too (eg DBH, Papers, Please, Not for broadcast, Disco Elysium) Finished DMC5, got obsessed with it (and V…). At least i got Vergil DLC now. Been thinking of trying Resident Evil because of Leon fan-arts on Twitter. I love Yakuza with my whole heart, too… Maybe getting Judgement will be worth it? But i do love me some fanservice and pretty men… so i am just torn between whatever i want.>>305892

I'm losing my mind excited about Baldurs Gate 3, especially since they moved the release date up. Tomorrow is the last panel from hell, and I feel like it'll be bittersweet - I've been following its development for year now. Excited to see full release, but a little sad that the whole ride is almost over! They have seemingly not shied away from the relationship/romance aspects of the game, which I am very thankful for.

The game is stellar and I promise you'll have fun even when you're not ogling him kek. Literally just moving around in the game is satisfying. There is a difficulty setting for those not used to action/survival horror games so you're in luck there. You'll have a blast anon!

Fuck Frontier and their million DLCs. I want to get them for Planet Coaster & Planet Zoo, but even on sale Planet Zoo all Planet Zoo DLC costs 83€, and Planet Coaster 44€. No way I'm paying that. But utilizing the Steam Workhop is a great way to discourage piracy, I need access to it since I'm a shit builder.
Really looking forward to it as well. I just hope I'll have the time to play, even more so because the new guild wars expansion is releasing in August and Phantom Liberty in September.
I feel bad for missing the last pfh, they were always a lot of fun to watch. And people still can't shut up about the bear kek
From what I saw you can give a hug to Astarion of you play it right, tbh I think that alone might make me keep him in the party lol(redditspacing; line breaks after each sentence do not improve legibility and serve no purpose)
I played the demo on PS4 when it was first released, don't really remember too much so I don't think it was super pervy. Don't remember much about the combat either so it was probably not bad at least.
In this case it does have a demo, so you should just try it for yourself.

Thoughts on FFXVI? I'm around 1/3 of the way through and it hasn't fully held my interest, despite my being a fan of the series since childhood. Will it get better? And was anyone else not shocked at the dramatic reveal of Clive being Joshua's killer? I thought it was clear that Clive was killing him after losing control of himself/Ifrit, so the whole mystery about the second dominant of fire was pointless to me. Were we supposed to be unsure about that?
File: 1688863415046.jpg (285.91 KB, 1920x1080, 1687518657.jpg)
No, the stories as generic as you think it is. There's a point where I thought the story would be interesting and throw me in for a loop, but it went the most predictable way ever. Other than that, Clive is cute and in desperate need of someone to wipe away his tears. Aka me. Or someone who isn't Jill, because she doesn't get any of her own development outside of being his partner-wife. Picrel is best boy.
I was in the same position as you, finished DMC5 then jumped to (or back to I guess) Sekiro and I'm having a blast.
I wanted to play the DMC reboot but the crack keeps failing on me it's annoying (windows defender deletes an important file)

I heard it had pretty bad issues on older models. I played on n3ds and still got frame rate drops in doubles from time to time. Was that why they cut the 3d option or did they realize no one used it? Either way, sumo had to be ass in the optimization department because yokai watch were bigger and better looking games and they barely had performance issues.

Thanks anon! Never played DMC so I have a hard time imagining how ffxvi is, but I’ll definitely see if I can find the demo. I also loved ffxv purely for the characters so hopefully ffxvi comes close to that.
I'm only on the second case, but the first one was pretty damn different from Danganronpa, there's similarities in some of the minigames but the actual format and playthrough style is very different.
The first mystery is really shocking I'll say that hahaha.
Thus far though my favorite part of the game is actually doing side quests and this game's version of FTE with the other characters, since they add a lot of nice worldbuilding to the setting of the game.

Is anyone excited for Pikmin 4 when it releases? I'm very excited to play it especially for the new camera controls, Oatchi, and Shepherd. I've noticed a lot of contention regarding Oatchi but I feel like he will only be as powerful as you wish to make him so I don't feel that he'll end up ruining the game. Though, it's a shame for Blue Pikmin since Oatchi kind of mogs them in ability and usefullness.

I fucking hate modern RPGs. I was playing D:OS2 the other day, and all dialogue in that game is "look at how verbose and in your face I am." Every fucking character has to have at least one zinger prepared, but also a needlessly tragic backstory.
And don't get me started on the actual gameplay. It's made to feel lime an immmersive sim, where you can do whatever you want if you're creative, but you're really forced to dance by the dev's tune; make the bad guy stand on colored surfaces, and do every side quest so you're not underleveled in the fight at the end of each act. Same goes for hoarding gear, which is leveled like in an MMO, with 100% random bonuses, and becomes obsolete after 2 hours of game play.
It really puts things into perspective when widely acclaimed games like these are considerably worse than the dumpster fire that the Pathfinder games were.

Very late reply but my life has been consumed by Fear and Hunger. If I'm not playing it, I'm thinking about it 24/7. I have spent so many hours reading everything I can in on the wiki just because the lore is so fascinating.
I love fucked up games like this, everything is so sanitized now so it's a real treat to find something like this. I'm in the process of trying to get everyone's S endings before I buy Termina as well.I love Cahara, he's such a slut.

As a fellow Pathologic enjoyer I'm right there with you; it's nice that more people are getting into these games but most of them just parrot whatever those youtubers say, never form their own opinions and think they know what tf they're going on about. I get that patho can seem pretty unaccessable and unforgiving to people so they only watch those essays, but god damn it's really not that bad, play it yourself sheeple.

Since I posted yesterday I've managed to get both Cahara and D'arce S endings, I started doing my Ragnvaldr run but lost an arm in catacombs and just closed the game. Might do Enki before Rag, seems less painful. I find myself hanging around in past Ma'habre because the bgm is soothing.>>310052

If you can somehow avoid the gendie majority of the fandom, the rest of it is pretty enjoyable; you just gotta curate your experience. That being said, if I see one more fanwork of Daniil being trans I might just have to do something in minecraft.

Seriously. I love how fucking crazy and disturbing F&H gets in ways that other games don't these days. Usually this level of violence feels like it's just there to satisfy edgelords and sadists/fetishists but this game does it tastefully.>>310247
The save file mechanic really is the absolute worst part of it. I don't mind the sheer difficulty of the game itself, but not being able to freely save sucks, especially when such small/seemingly insignificant things can end your run instantly. I know it's part of the difficulty but still…
The lack of saving just makes me.. not want to explore which then leads to me not having say a bandage when my character randomly steps on a nail. That so far is the only thing making me hesitate to play further. the absolute annoyance I felt when 3 runs were lost on that stupid torturer bed and I have to watch that lil bitch chop my arms and legs off
like yeah it's a part of it but I think I'll get a mod.

I don't wanna sound like "that guy", but once you get comfortable with how the game works and you get further, the lack of saves isn't as much as a hinderance as when you first start learning how to play. Without giving away too much you may get access to a few beds that you can save in without worrying about the coin flip. There's lots of ways to bend this game to your will, but discovering how to do that is half the fun.
I'm offically taking a break from finishing the S endings for a little bit and I'm gonna start Termina, going in as blind as I can so please wish me luck.
I get you, i saw someone say to do a long run no sleeping for a while and I'm gonna try that, if all else fails, mods.

Lol nona I did the same. Looked up the wiki to gauge interest and I got annoyed to find out Marina is a trans identified male. If you read his backstory it's like a depressing and macabre version of Bridget's, so it makes even less sense for him to want to stay trans.
If the dev is not a troon already he (I'm assuming he's a man after all the amounts of dicks I've seen) he will troon out soon: he said Marina his favorite character and that's a huge red flag.
There are also trannisms in the (pretty awesome) art direction, like the deranged goddess of fertility sporting phalluses in her design instead of just vulvas.
The games doesn't seem bad aside from these scrotey things. Personally I won't play them because they look too bleak for my tastes.

I don't know anything and I don't really care about the dev being a weirdo behind the scenes, Fear & Hunger Termina is easily one of the most interesting games I've played in a long, long while. Love the oppresive atmosphere, the creatures designs and all the mystery. You have plenty of great playable female characters there (Abella, Karin, Olivia), you would be seriously missing out if you don't give in a shot just because Marina exists. My first playthrough had me go in completely blind, she wasn't part of my team, didn't realize there's any troon backstory until I went to check out the community. Also given the game's story and how it is constructed I honestly can't imagine other characters being into her being a big part of it or being portrayed as "normal feelings" since nothing in this game is normal; spoiler for non playable character coming in later in the game I know about Samarie and her obsession is hardly something i'd consider romantic
it has just as many fujos and fags as it has troons, don't worry about it.
my male alt gets cat called as often as my female main(I lurk in Balmung QS)
most trannies are easy to ignore if you don't engage, and I you really shouldn't engage with them or you'll never hear the end of it.
Well as long as he's not genuinely evil it's fine. I'm still not too hot on the scrotey things in the game but being a pro-tranny fetishist insane weirdo doesn't mean your games will inevitably be shit.
Also it's based that he's made loli moids mald because you can't "marriage" the little girl.

When i understand what was happening it was too late already. I didn't think i would love her so much but she was so charming, she was constantly on my team, she was so powerful and genuinely, ofc i spent my Gold Saucer date with her and it was the cutest thing ever. She's so selfless you don't lose her materia. I'm just sobbing while listening to her theme since then. I just want to buy beautiful art of Aeris, if you have any please share.

Paralives is gonna suck. The building and decorating will be great because of Unity engine. If you look at other games that are made in Unity (eg. Two Point Campus/Hospital) that also have building capabilities, Paralives have the exact same ones, maybe just a bit more in-depth. Unity engine and the artists are 100% carrying this game. So far we have seen ZERO gameplay footage. It is just all optics. Their marketing tactics are great and everyone is eating it up. If you even ASK for gameplay footage and you express concern towards not having seen any, their fanbase will eat you whole and accuse you of being a horrible person because "they're such a small team and you shouldn't pressure them". I don't think the dude who is making this could get an in-depth communication system going like we've seen in the Sims 2. And i'm not even sure how deep you could go with that because of Unity. Unity engine also comes with restrictions, as do all engines, which is why it is always smarter to build your own engine so you can tune it to your needs. I think he is very aware of this, which is why they are pushing the building so hard when releasing tiny snippets of what is possible in their game. They probably think that as long as the building aspect of the game is great, most people will forgive shitty and lifeless gameplay mechanics. Life By You will have the same problems (also made in Unity). And don't even get me started on how the characters look so horribly ugly in both games. How is that even possible in todays age? Just go on Fiverr and you will find dozens of artists who could come up with something better. I'm absolutely devastated by the realization that i will never get to see a great Sim game that is a mix of the Sims 2 and 3 with modern graphics in my life time and it sucks. I was wondering if some nonnas here feels the same way.
The art style for both PL and LBY has always put me off but I wanted to believe… >They probably think that as long as the building aspect of the game is great, most people will forgive shitty and lifeless gameplay mechanics
to be honest I always found building the most boring part of the Sims games which is why all my sims' houses were pre-made, downloaded lots or crappy squares with a roof on (if even that before I got Seasons lmao)>great Sim game that is a mix of the Sims 2 and 3
That would be ideal but I really don't think we're going to get anything like that ever.

I started playing Hotline Miami today but I'm so fucking bad at it.. I don't understand why you HAVE to play with WASD keys. Does it get better with more play time/practice?
I don't understand what you mean, nonna? What game don't you play with WASD these days? The only thing you need to learn with Hotline is that you have to move fast and learn where your enemies are. Enemies basically slide towards you once they notice you so there isn't much time to look around and play it with a slow pace. And yes, it does get more difficult.>>312344
Playing Hotline Miami with a controller is definitely not recommended since it's such a fast paced game. I would recommend replaying it with MKB if you ever get the chance!

I swear it's the same song and dance every new State of the Game article for Destiny players. "Oh, no, the devs aren't doing the things I want specifically! Oh, no, the modes that don't get player engagement aren't being prioritized! Oh, no, they aren't going to make another ugly ritual armor set that was a rehash of the last one! Oh, no, Eververse! Again!"
Fucking christ, I haven't played this game since season 18, but even now D2 players and their whining has somehow made its way onto my timeline, and not a god damn thing has changed. They're all talk and no action, just like always. They loudly whine in their little subreddit, making overblown declarations about how the game is shit and that Bungie doesn't care, and that they're definitely dropping the game now for sure, and blah blah blah… Yet every new season they're slinking back to the game to check out the season pass, and the shiniest Eververse offerings, and the content.
These scrotes don't have a single ounce of integrity in which to pin their useless screeching, and all it does is prove how childish and entitled they truly are.
They deserve their misery.
>>312344>I am a n00b who plays games on easy because I'm mainly in it for the story
Kek same. I love it so far, even all the little tidbits mixed into the levels and cutscenes. >>312393
Sorry, I didn't formulate it properly, I meant getting used to the playstyle rather than levels being easy. I don't play that many PC games and when I do, I tend to use the arrows. You're able to use them in the menu of HLM 1, so not being able to do it in the game too confused me.
But after playing a few more levels, it's exactly how you said! Basically just rushing in, memorizing the area and developing a system based on it. My favorite is to just lure them all to a spot with gunshots, like a true newbie kek.
I only just finshed the level with the restaurant/axe/the janitors/the black mobster on the toilet. But my least favourite so far was the level with the explosive room, purely because of the last two mobsters behind the barricades. I died so many fucking times trying to get them with machine guns.
If you don't even play the game anymore why do you care about fandom drama?
I love the game but I don't read reddit etc. about it anymore because they don't care about spoiling leaks.
Why does it feel like I'm the only person on this site who still actually plays Destiny.
If you'd read my post a little more thoroughly, you'd have seen this line:>but even now D2 players and their whining has somehow made its way onto my timeline
I don't follow Bungie, or D2 game news updates at all, but the stuff found it's way onto my twitter tl anyway–my fault for browsing the 'For You' tab looking for art kek. Anyway, it was some D2 news account throwing a fit and denouncing Bungie, so I got curious, read up on the actual Bungie article, then checked the subreddit because it had been a while and I was interested to see how they were taking it. Low and behold, reddit scrotes continue to scrote. That's what I get for having expectations, I guess!
I dunno, it's irritating to see how the fandom culture around D2 still hasn't improved despite–or in spite of–how well the game is apparently doing and I let my temper get the best of me. Apologies! The reddit D2 bellyachers still deserve all their agony, though ♥>Why does it feel like I'm the only person on this site who still actually plays Destiny?
I remember talking about Destiny some on here a while back but got crickets, so I stopped bothering–and that was well before I'd even stopped playing. FPS isn't the most popular genre on LC, so that's to be expected.

Got into Palia closed beta 2 days ago. It is nice and relaxing but I expected more multiplayer aspects since it is an MMO.
Open beta comes out August 10th and maybe lolcow.farm nonnies could make our own community (name for guild in this game)
I don't see point with making sim game with great building aspects since Sims 4 is already quite good in that imo.
What everyone is complaining about is life simulation itself - sims feeling like lifeless dolls and dumb etc. None of the new games that are supposed to compete with Sims are showing that they are improving that aspect.
OP here and I went mostly blind too. I remember I signed up for it just because I read it is a community sim MMORPG and that is what I have been looking for ever since Mabinogi lol.
For now I am content with the game, looking forward to see what it grows into

Nonnas… I never played horror games before and I am terrified of Mr X from RE2. i know thats the whole point of him, but the only thing I am scared of are chasing OP-enemies. I was wondering if anyone had the same issue? Other than that I am enjoying the game, its amazing and beautiful. Maybe i could install a mod where his model is replaced by something else…I wish there was a clear sound or way to hear him from the distance.
Install the mod that replaces Mr X with Thomas the Engine.
Alternatively, you can remove him altogether.
Did you mean you only want to play the DLC? The Rose dlc is pretty good and it's worth the price on sale.>>313116
Kek I was scared of him in the beginning, but that was part of the fun for me. You can hear his footsteps pretty clearly plus I think there is a music that plays when he is close by. He is pretty scary in your first playthrough but once you get how he works it's pretty silly. Alternatively, you can shoot him with a magnum in the head and he will stay on his knees, though I don't recommend wasting ammo on him, just lure him to open spaces and go around him. RPD safe rooms, the STARS room and the clocktower are safe for you to hide from him. He doesn't follow you beyond the RPD. Hope this helps, I know it's scary at first but that's some of the fun of it. He is the scariest thing in the game imo.
The Xeno-FF7 thing is just an Easter egg, they aren't actually connected. The various Xeno series aren't even really connected to each other much beyond similar themes and some vague ideas of the original creator that it's all in the same universe that I don't think is really evident in the games.
And Vagrant Story's Ivalice isn't really the same as FF Tactics Ivalice, and it's also different in Tactics Advance, and different in Advance 2 and FFXII.
Well that character was designed by Nomura.
I've only played Xenosaga and it's really not similar at all besides general JRPG tropes.

I have no idea why they went with this art style for the remake when the original game's graphics went for realism and weren't even slightly anime. It's like the artist wasn't talented enough to imitate the original's art style so they went for anime style instead.
The graphics were limited at the time, but you can see in my screen shot how the original game tried to give the mc a realistic face.

The anime disney face really doesn't suit the game. The artist they got pretty much only draws naked sexy girls with the same face, a terrible pick for this. The cover art is full of beginner's art mistakes, I have no hope for this. There is a troon on the team as well.

Nayrt but that boss fight was such a pain in the ass. Apparently it's also easier if you put it on the highest difficulty level, and that worked for me. That was the only way for me to get past that fucker.
This really irks me, that studio keep on redoing games and pasting on their bland western anime artstyle onto games that originally had good, distinct art-direction.
This style just totally clashes with the actual game's content, aren't they pretty much just porting the original game over, not changing the original spritework?
Autistic I know, but it pisses me off as a longtime Clock Tower fan. Hopefully they'll never get their grubby mitts on Ghost Head, that weird side game where you're a girl with a split personality, run from samurai armor and shit. Wacky entry to the series.

There was a discussion about life sims here. I found out about Tiny Life from a youtube video and decided to try it out myself. Encountered a bug and I went to the public discord server. The dev just has unrestricted channel where he posts racy photos and I didn't even had to do any age verification lol. 3rd picture had the mold of his dick. He also has the same pictures on his instagram linked in the dev page but it's groom-y in a discord server for a game supposedly safe for all ages.
Oh yeah and soundtrack is a banger but unfortunately made by a troon.
Jesus Christ, that's fucked up. Imagine Kojima starting a Discord and showing pole. Actually don't, that's foul. But it's such a crazy time to be alive where you can purchase a game, talk to the creator and
see the creator's weird fetish posts. Wild.

Seconded! Been playing since release and I'm obsessed. Haven't been this addicted to a game since playing Cyberpunk (no, I will not be accepting opposing opinions kek).>>314388
NTAYRT but I'm enjoying what little I've seen of the romances. Just got past Act 1 because I've been taking my time. Since all the companions are bisexual, they all have the potential to be attracted to you, which is only really a problem if you end up getting high approval for all of them. Even then, not every character wants to sleep with you immediately despite what some people are pushing.
The romances are generally slow burn, and Astarion and Lae'zel are the only ones you can sleep with immediately (someone correct me if I'm wrong), but their actual romances develop a lot slower from what I'm seeing. They're more of the fuck first, romance later type. With the other characters, though, you can flirt with them a lot, but they won't sleep with you just yet.
Generally though, people are over-exaggerating the horniness, I think. If you don't want someone flirting with you, you can just tell them that. There are options made for that exact reason. And some of the stuff that people are saying are romantic feel more platonic to me.

I just played with my friends with nudity turned off because of awkwardness, but within the first 5 minutes of the game we figured out we could take Lae'zel's underwear, put it in our inventory and give it to any character. So of course we put it on everyone, kek. The game has some spicy fanservice outfits men can wear and apparently you can customize your character's genitalia. My current thoughts are: "wait, I can install it at home and see everyone I find cute fully nude and cheesily slow burn romance them, what is this power?"

This is a game rated M, all characters are physically mature adults, the game lets you disable nudity. There is no pornification of women, no boob size slider and you can make the men wear any clothes you can make women wear.
Weebs pissing and shitting themselves over their highschool girl panties getting censored is hilarious. The only censorship that bothered me in Japanese games was Americans censoring guns and suicide (like in Forbidden Siren, while the Eu version was normal).

If that's what you're thinking about based on my post you have no idea what you're talking about at all.
>no boob size slider
Genital customization is infinitely worse just as an idea.
No boob size slider is probably more because they didn't feel like editing armor sets then anything 'feminist' apparently there's a troon VA in the game.
Seems everybody already forgot about Cyberpunk. Though in that game it only matered in the menu and photo mode because it was first person. And the boob size choice seemed like it defaulted to the medium whenever you put a shirt on.
Then what are you thinking about? Give examples>>314666>>314580
Thinking about troons in a game that gives female fans so much pandering and options (and the male characters are more conventionally attractive) is sad.
Wish I could justify getting new computer to play bg3 and starfield. I really do not want to spend 70 bucks on a game I have to play with oblivion graphics/can't get it run at all.
It happened with multiple games.
Xenosaga had some wierd censorship in a few scenes, but it was probably more to keep a T rating then anything moral.

When I saw this it seemed so out of place I had to look up wtf that was about.>FE Fates, a game about family drama, parental abuse and war, doesn't want you to see the anti-hero character, Xander (or Marks) in the original as the anti-hero with daddy issues he is because that's not family friendly enough. They lowered the game's rating to make it seem like it's for small kids. Made half of the cast so OOC but especially the entire story incoherent. Imagine if Drakengard 3 was localized in the US and in Europe with no swear words, so references to sex and less violent backstories and the localizers slapped the T/12 sticker on it so kids would play it>bare shoulders are absolutely haram, they changed the wedding dress that one of the main characters wears in #TMS>the 16/17 years old MC in FE Engage can marry men in their 40s but can't date/marry characters their age anymore even though that game is way more family friendly than Fates and could have teenage players wanting to pair up their character with someone who's not an old fart>FF16 US localizers changed a bunch of lines for no reason whatsoever, but it seems like other languages aren't affected.

Of course it happens to a canon gay man who dates another gay man.>And even in general, characters talking normally in Japanese suddenly speaking like they're in a Shakespeare play, having unreadable accents, changed names for no reason at all (fucking Dragon Quest…), keeping shitty or mistranslated lines in remasters or remakes because muh memes (the FF pixel remaster kept shit like "you spoony bard" because the localizers said it's too iconic to replace,as if that wasn't the perfect opportunity to correct that shit), making characters OOC to sell more to people who don't play that shit either way or to reassure worried parents that little Timmy won't be traumatized by references to Christianity in a JRPG, etc.

it's too late now because troons would have a field day but free my man gracie
Your only valid
point is about FE Fates getting mishandled because of its lack of finding a target demographic in the west. The rest are literal nothingburgers, differences in localization styles (yes, some characters speak in a very keigo way and it's hard to convey) and cringey translators trying to make a joke more localized and failing.
99% of these things didn't make people care in the west compared to weebs complaining about every cleavage and pantyshot coverage.>We can't even have normal Japanese video games with accurate translations without everyone shitting in their pants and crying
Like, literally nobody cares about the accuracy of crossdressing otokonoko jokes compared to the main thematic of a game.
>>314693>yes, some characters speak in a very keigo way and it's hard to convey
It's only hard to convey if you're very incompetent or if you want to insert your fanfic to "improve" the original work.
>cringey translators trying to make a joke more localized and failing.
They often do that to replace completely normal, neutral and serious lines though. When a serious or dramatic scene happens and suddenly a character says a sarcastic joke that's OOC and would make Joss Whedon himself cringe it ruins the entire scene. Best case scenario you have a comedic scene where the characters talk naturally and argue without making pop culture references with each other but the localizers will explain the joke, will make the characters say something very unfunny instead and will make it unrelated to what's going on onscreen. I've seen some screenshots of the Kiseki games and it's amazing how unfunny American localizers are. I also forgot to mention MGS1 vs MGS2 localization and how the guy who did it for MGS1 changed a lot of small things to make it more serious or make it seem more like he personally would imagine a mid 30s fed up soldier being used as a pawn to the point where some players found MGS2 weird in comparison, and Kojima was really annoyed at this and iirc he told the localizer to not randomly change shit next time. But then again I wanted to give more recent examples.
>99% of these things didn't make people care in the west
Because many people don't even know there's a huge difference between the original and the butchered localization.
tldr; I don't get how the exact same people praising the genital customization and bestiality in that new Western RPG are the exact same one praising wholesome gay pairings or entire plot points and character development being changed or censored in other games. It's pure nonsense. And yes it's the exact same people because they're always the same one acting as influencers online or are game journalists.
God same, been ages since I was so into any fictional character>>314700
Spoiler for a very general info about Astarion romance he seems like an asshole initially but the romance is surprisingly tender and sweet and you see him show his vunerable side
>>314669>What's the point of genital customization?
Their target audience are people who got into DnD through Critical Role and fan culture, which is focused on romance and sexual content. Conservative moids will purchase and play it despite pretending they're boycotting, they're addicted to consooming games on a release.
Also it's fun to see moids complaining when the original series romances were:>self insert of a nice guy (m'lady type) as the only option for a female PC.>dark elf dominatrix (portrait traced over a porn star pic)>mature redhead elf (mummy issues)>traumatised elf teenager (flashback of moids calculating if she's legal in their country and discussing ethics of human/elf sexual relationships)>interesting male elf cut content (he was planned to be bi anyways because nice things can't be exclusive for a female PC).
Gaider would have dick customisation in BG2 if he could, but it was a low resolution 2d game.

I like the (unnecessary) male sexualization in this game, it's a hilarious change from scantily clad ladies. Sexy mind flayers?? The wizard can have an astral projection sex scene in the sky with you?
I am just an average lady who doesn't even like porn because it's so male centered and offputting (I am struggling to find any nudity examples online for anons because I literally don't know how I would find them, I only get my nudity in anatomy books kek) and I find ERPers cringe. This game however has me laughing at the boldness and casual approach, it reminds me of some romance novels I find cheesy but still get giddy about. I initially turned the nudity in the game off because I thought it would be annoying and cringey.
I want a new Dissidia game with characters from the more recent FF games right now. I heard the one on the PS4 was very different from the PSP games so I wish a new game would be like the PSP Dissidia games if that were to happen someday.>>314743>The wizard can have an astral projection sex scene in the sky with you?
That sounds really stupid and not equivalent at all to what fanservice with female character usually is. And it reminds me of the Snapewives.
managing to astral project yourself only to find out that you have hideous bolt-ons on the astral plane. I'd rope.

You never read the japanese Fates script. You can make a lot of complaints about the game's localization, but the main story got left unscathed, warts and all.
File: 1692040424615.jpg (90.14 KB, 828x1024, 724CE785F06F4985B2694643B7091A…)
That's the thing: Xander/Marx' inconsistent characterization is part of Fates' shitty original script. The story is dogshit in japanese too, I have no idea how you can believe otherwise when we have documentation and multiple people who read both scripts confirmed it. Hell I played the awful Fates' fantranslation and it's the same story as the Treehouse/NOA version, just with bad and stilted dialogue.
Treehouse also did not touch Marx' supports. He is a noble big brother in the original ones and it still clashes with how he's Garon's lapdog through most of the routes' main stories.
The characters who got changed are mainly Effie, Niles/Zero and Soleil. The rest of the changes are mostly certain supports like Saizo/Beruka, Silas/Hana and Kagero/Azama.
You could easily bring up these complaints instead: Effie turned from a sweet powerhouse to a roided muscle girl, Niles' dark sadism and perversion being basically gutted from the game, Soleil turning down male love interests in her S supports except for Forrest, Forrest being a little bitch in his join chapter, various faux feminist changes to many small details, the complete removal of sexy swimsuits and of the crappy petting minigame…
It was an awful localization that removed plenty of content without replacing it with anything. But the main script is the only thing it did right, it perfectly translates the original's garbage story. Treehouse did many things wrong but Fates' story is all Intelligent System's fault.
Xander barely opposes his father. He seems like a schizo in European languages because American localizers didn't like that he was a coward, a little bitch and had massive daddy issues that would make Freud roll in his grave. He spends the whole game knowing that Garon is fucked in the head, that he's a terrible ruler and that something's wrong with him because he wasn't like that years ago, and yet he willingly obeys his father no matter what because that's his duty as his son and as the heir. All of this is consistent, because the only time in Conquest when he decides to act is when it turns out that Garon was dead all along and was zombified by another entity. Same shit in the shitty DLC route when he hears Garon saying stupid shit that makes it obvious he's not the actual Garon. Otherwise he would have let him slaughter more people while thinking "man, my dad sucks, too bad I'm his son I guess."
Meanwhile in English he's always like "muh little princess, father is a terrible man! but I'll let him do whatever he wants because uhhh I'm a retard! Oh but no I think he didn't do anything wrong now! Oh btw little princess uwu do you remember the 20 times I told you dad was evil and we can't do anything against him? Well if you were wrong about him being possessed by something else while mass murdering people then I'll kill you bitch!" Keep in mind that in the scene in English when he says he'll kill you for being a traitor or whatever right before you fight Garon transformed as a monster in the throne room, in Japanese he just says there will be consequences against the MC if the MC is wrong not because he wants to, but because the MC needs evidence before making this kind of accusations. Don't even get me started on the long speech he does about justice that's so ooc it's hilarious. In the og he just says there's no justice, life is unfair and good people die all the time and that's it, he keeps it short. He's noble while being much more of a anti-hero.
I'm not getting a PS5 because it's not in my budget but I checked some FF16 playthrough and it's hilarious how Dion reminds me of what the localizers tried to make Xander into. They're actually opposites. It's just a reference if you're curious or want to play that game someday. Anyway you can dislike Fates' story for being badly written but blame the right people over this. I could imagine people disliking the story as it should have been presented in the first place as well but many people would have complained way less over it being inconsistent imo. Maybe they would have complained about it being boring or melodramatic instead.
>Treehouse also did not touch Marx' supports.
They did, but way less than in the main story. I do remember some minor changes like him being slightly less explicit when he basically tells Nyx he's suicidal after executing some unnamed siblings who tried to assassinate him and others. And that's relevant because he commits suicide by cop in Birthright and you're supposed to see how it all comes together in either scene depending on which route you played first. Or there's his supports with Charlotte where he says he never imagined finding love and getting married to her and she's like "omg are you saying you're actually gay?". That's obviously less impactful than what I said earlier.
>You could easily bring up these complaints instead
I agree with all you said but didn't have time when I made my first post.
>the complete removal of sexy swimsuits
That one pissed me off so much because I played a lot against people in uni thanks to the streetpass feature and these items actually increased stats during multiplayer battles.
The reason I assume it's a troon thing is because no normal person would give a shit about genital customization. With faces,abs, pecs, boobs etc I can see why people would want to adjust those. But genitals?>>314710
I've never watched Critical Roll, is it really that sexual? Is this what the dnd fandom is now? I know dnd has always had a little horniness but I didn't realize it had gone full coomer.

After over three months after it's release, I finished most of the main story in Tears of The Kingdom. I take this game as slow as possible because for me there is only one first impression and I want to make it as special as possible. I already adored BOTW but TOTK improved so much! I'm especially happy that the story is somehow more complex than in BOTW, so I'm really excited about the ending. Ngl I teared up a bit when I collected all dragon tears. Even when I knew who the white dragon was, the transformation scene and the last shed tear with the flowers really touched me. The Gerudo Temple was the absolute best imo, bc it was the perfect fusion between old and new Zelda games. I still have to do some main story quests and explore the rest of the depths and finally beat some Gleeoks. I'm already over 200 hours in and I think I will beat my botw score of 285 hours. I will continue to take it slowly bc god knows for how long we have to wait for a new zelda game after that, even when I really, really, really want to know how the story ends.
I also like to mention that ganondorf's design in this game is just top tier.

I don't get it everytime I see someone saying that FF16 is just like GOT because I have never watched that show, I just know some vague things about it. I'm watching a playthrough of FF16 because no PS5 for me so everytime characters talk about war and politics and betraying a country and its people for another I just think that well, you know, it's the typical fantasy plot you'd find in a JRPG, like in other FF games or in FE games, but in HD. I haven't see people complaining about it, they're just like "oh it's just like in GOT" during some cutscenes. Like at that point I assume that if FF2 were an HD game with the exact same plot but more detailed cutscenes and dialogs (for example if they took some of the canon stuff from that super old novel and put it in the game) people would say the exact same thing. I don't think you'd have to add any sex scene in it, just keep the scene where Firion is seduced by the fake princess and nearly gets stabbed and you'd have the same comments about it.
I think that might be a bit of an overreaction, boob sliders primarily exist in more nsfw games (the ones that let you go from tiny to massive) and like most of the ones I've seen in modern gaming don't let you go to either extremes just like B-D (not emoji). Not really hitting where I lie either but in every game I can get breasts my size it's jiggle physic simulator.
If we really look at it, there isn't much room for body customisation at all, can't be fat, can't be rail thin, but you must have a bangin' bod not regular person bod. It's actually a lot less in depth than I imagined, I spent more time on the cyberpunk one.
The genitalia is only for a small amount of people who aren't going to use Male normal or Female normal but it gets them praise so why not. Even though a character definitely called mine a lady lmao.
Dragonborns are flat chested if you really want it.

Been playing phasmophobia and a big update is supposed to be dropping this thursday. It's supposed to reset the player's money? and create a new levelling system where you can use worse or more high-tech tools. Does anyone else play phasmo? What do you guys think about this update?
I don't know how far into the game you are so I'll spoiler this in case you don't know the specifics of his "condition" but it disgusts me so much that he has sex with the player character even though he has a magic bomb in his chest and only reveals it after they already banged. If you get mad at him for not telling you he basically shrugs it off and is like "I wanted you and that's why I didn't tell you" without even showing any remorse.
Kudos to the devs for making such a flawed character but god, he annoys the fuck out of me with his selfishness.
Thanks for the spoiler I have already been spoiled on that but yeah dick move, it just kinda makes his "we should all get along I'm so nice uwu" schtik seem like a bit of an act, like what would you be like in a long term relationship.
Lae'zel is very take her as you see her, very forward
ShadowHeart has some secrets but they don't alter her personality and she has great reasons to be like that.
Asterion has some baggage but is obviously a shit stirrer.
and I don't pay attention to anyone else.
Either way I'm more into Lae'zel now because of Gale's weirdness.

I FUCKED UP THE ROMANCE I WANTED IN BG3
I don’t know, Karlach
just friend zoned me
I feel like the game pushes me to use Shart a lot. I didn't in the begining and all the banter between my party members stopped before I even went to the goblins. But the moment I put her in, she constantly has something to say about a place we are in or banters away.
And can my companions stop cucking me? I'm trying really hard to romance people and get their approval and it's taking time. BUT, if I have SH in my party they start sounding like they all wanna bang each other lol, poor Tav not included. At the begining it felt very nice for female players but the more I play the more I see male ROs as kinda sucky? Are female ones any better?>>315450
I personally feel SH is the most moid pandery "tsundere waifu". She is also feeling like a canon main character, writers favourite probably. Karlach on the other hand feels like an afterthought, like she's a DLC character. Even the animation upthread doesn't have her in it for some reason.

I think Shadowheart is okay as an annoying little sister character. I can't imagine actually romancing her because she feels A LOT younger than all the other companions. Everyone seems to be in their 30s while she comes across like an edgy 19 year old.>Are female ones any better?
Lae'zel and Karlach are both great and I much prefer them over any of the male romances. Lae'zel has some great development and has a soft heart beneath her warrior exterior, and Karlach is just chill as hell.

I'm seriously considering getting a PS5 later this year or maybe at the beginning of the next year. I want to move to my own place first, I have a tiny TV so I will most likely replace it so while I do have the money for a PS5 and some games right now is not the good time. FF16 makes me want to have one but since it's compatible with PS4 games I'm considering getting other games I wanted to play for a long time. Here's what I would also like to play
>FF15 and FF7 remake (I want the other FF remasters on the Switch because I like playing on handhelds a lot more)
>Resident Evil 2, 3 and 4 remakes
>DMC5, and maybe get the previous games as well since my PS2 is dead
>maybe Kingdom Hearts as a whole, I always wanted to play them
>Yakuza? I'm not sure where to start with this though
What else would you suggest, based on your own personal preferences? I like JRPGs a lot but not only so I'm pretty open-minded but please don't recommend ugly Western AAA games that require like 5 DLCs to be actually complete and that force you to play with an internet connection. I don't want to play online stuff in general anyway.
Troons really are so obsessed with appropriating female exclusive things like witches, sisterhood, etc. Women really can't have anything to themselves without males around.>More than anything else, it's about sisterhood and womanhood, and approaches these themes politically and bravely. At one point, you help a trans woman transition into the witch she wants to be. There is queerness everywhere, and female solidarity everywhere you look.
Into the trash it goes.
If you want to play the Resident Evil remakes, might as well give 7 and 8 a try too.
I personally like roguelike games, binding of isaac, hades, slay the spire, enter the gungeon and crypt of necrodancer are my favorites in this genre.
I mentioned the remakes because of some weird "nostalgia", because when I was a kid during the PS1 gen my older cousin had a PS1 and some of the games and I wasn't allowed to play them because "they're for grown-ups, they'retoo violent" even though I really wanted to play them. So I think I'll play them first if I can and if I like them enough I'll play 7 and 8 after.
I don't think I've ever played roguelike games so I don't know if I'll enjoy the genre but I'll keep these titles in mind just in case. I know they're also on the Switch but games on the Switch are usually more expensive iirc so idk.

I've finished Pikmin 4, have you? It was pretty damn fun. I like how the areas were nice and big to explore thoroughly so the game didn't feel short at all. Oatchi didn't feel too overpowered, the only thing he's truly overpowered at from the get-go is being able to condense your Pikmin in one tight little circle. I agree as well, there are times where I felt like I didn't have enough Pup Drive for him because rescuing castaways are the only way to increase them. Also, Moss is a cutie and I love her.

I think SH only had English voice acting because the characters were modeled with their voice actors. This was one of the reasons why people didn’t like it getting re-recorded, because it was like they replaced actors and actresses that performed in a specific style with modern anime VAs.
The old Resident Evils also only had English voice acting because the games took place in America, so Capcom wanted it in English.

Holy shit can Gale leave me ALONE already? I can't believe this middle aged incel has been chasing me down nonstop even though I'm in a relationship with Astarion and have rejected him every single time he tried to start something. I never even selected any nice options again after the second time it happened. During the Tiefling party I rejected him to sleep with Astarion, then I rejected him during the Weave thing, then rejected him again when he compared me to his cat. Now he invited me to go hang out under the stars and tried to bang me (I quick saved beforehand because I could tell this is where it was going). And every single time his ass guilt trips me for not being into him.
He must be bugged, right? There's no way it's intended for him to still thirst for Tav even after getting turned down so many times. I haven't even had him in my party for a good 10 hours of playtime now and he's still probably secretly sniffing my bedroll whenever I leave camp. Those magical boots I fed him must have been aphrodisiacs or something.
His last gf kicked him out when he tried to obtain godlike powers
and now he realises you're the main character? He's like a hobosexual but for power.

I personally really liked Gale's romance. He's very cute and dorky and my heart melts at some of his dialogue with how much he adores you. All companions have very good voice acting but Gale's voice especially is just soothing to listen to. (A shame Wyll got a new actor, I liked how much warmth radiated off his old voice.) Lae'zel and Jaheira were very fun to have as companions and are also my favorites.
I have mixed feelings on the guardian..
The only one I disliked was Halsin, which is a shame because in Early Acess I really liked him.

File: 1692782442867.jpg (155.46 KB, 700x991, F4NE9nIWkAAsixC.jpg)
I came here just to complain about the armband kek
All the previous trailers showed the original one, I wonder if it was a late change… The new ones are an eyesore, they just occupy too much visual space on the dark outfits, the original armbands gave the perfect amount of accent color. I usually play with costumes so isn't like I will see them much, but it sucks that they will get slapped on every official art and merch and throw off the whole color balance.
That aside, I'm super excited for everything else they have shown, Aigis and MC look gorgeous.

Sorry for double post, but just checked the new trailer again and it shows the original armband as well. Maybe they're two versions, original for school setting and new for tartarus/full moon missions.

They're starting to add Denuvo to Switch, a console that already struggles to run games. Looks like my current one will be their last console I will buy, I'm having more fun with old NDS games than with recent Switch ones anyways.
I have only owned Nintendo consoles because no money, so that's pretty much all I know. But for the past years I have been findind out more 3rd party/Sony games I love, so I think I will be fine with just a PS5, I'm not gonna pay for a half-assed console that won't be able to run stuff.
Ironically, this will make me start pirating the Nintendo games I want when I get a fuctional PC.

What the fuck is going on with the FF16 localization I'm so confused:
>script written in Japanese first
>translated into English with a lot of small things changed, removed or added
>Japanese script is slightly changed to reflect that I guess the writers were inspired by the English speaking localizers so they worked together
>dubbed in English first, then in Japanese, then in other languages
>localized in Arabic but game banned in Saudi Arabia and maybe other Arabic speaking countries because it has a plot-relevant gay couple tenderly kissing in one scene
>French translation is basically half from the Japanese script and half from the English one and adds their own lines Dion and Terrence are even more sappy than usual kek
>half of the characters in French sound like some bad anime, GTO and FMA 2003 had much better dubs two decades ago, the rest sounds ok
>Torgal is now Targol(?), probably to not be sued by the publishing company that hold the rights to Thorgal, some Belgian comics
>Olivier becomes Octavien or some shit even though Olivier is some basic bitch male name, everyone here knows at listen a dozen of Olivier
>Dion is still Dion despite 99.999% of French speakers thinking about Céline Dion when seeing that name, Benedikta still has her name even though 99% of us would think of the mayonnaise brand when hearing her name
>but Olivier can't stay Olivier because ??? and he sounds retarded while he sounds smug as fuck in other languages

Persona anons I want your opinions. I'm playing P3P and I was originally planning on romancing Akihiko but I ended up starting a relationship with Ryoji. Right after I realized this I made another save (since the previous save was from before that). In your opinion which guy is better to romance? I'm feeling torn rn.
You can date both. FeMC gets 0 punishment for dating more than one person, so it's ok.
Ryoji is my favorite male romance with FeMC, but that depends on your personal taste. Being honest all her romances (except for the kid) are great, she's the only Persona MC where these routes feel genuine imo.
Littlewood - be careful this game fried my laptop but they may have fixed the problem, simple town builder with exploration and friends you can romance, I found it very cute
Sun Haven - haven’t played it yet but it looks so fun and hopefully they keep adding to it
Those are the only two I can think of right now but I know there are many more and I’ve seen a lot of indie devs developing similar games with different themes (one where you play as an aspiring chef and another where you’re a goblin).

I'm enjoying Fear & Hunger but the fandom is really annoying. No offence to nonas who posted about F&F here but I find the sluttification of Cahara and all the memes obnoxious, especially since he's a fan favorite among TIFs. I like that he's objectified but the way people go about it is so porny and misogynistic (picrel with the joke being that he's pretty much a girl) and I can't help but feel like he wouldn't get the feminization treatment if his character wasn't the one getting raped so much. He's also getting the 'golden retriever bf' treatment (another meme I absolutely hate) and it's so off putting to me lol.
I really like the atmosphere and the story but tbh it's not that groundbreaking. I mean I still think it's very good but people are acting like no one's ever done anything like that. I think the lore is not all that original and obviously inspired by other media and religions which isn't a bad thing. I think the gameplay and the visuals are much more interesting than the lore.
File: 1693160076945.jpg (179.97 KB, 1695x1284, F4XYRXUXsAAEKP5.jpg)
Agreed. I think the best part about the game is not because it's "edgy", but because the gameplay is enriching. I like how it keeps making you want to do one more run to see what you can change the next time. I think people focus on the wrong things when praising the game. And I agree that I'm not too fond of how people treat Cahara. I feel like there's a commentary to be made on how people feminize the one who gets assaulted the most in the game, but I'm too stupid to think of it right now. D'Arce is great.

And I still haven't gotten around to that new computer. It's Bethesda so it's probably good to wait for some patches but.

I just impulse-bought Persona 5 today , I know basically nothing about it. Is it a good choice nonas? I don't have a lot of experience with RPGs but it looked interesting so here I go!
The new Developer "The Chinese Room" has mostly done artsy walking simulators in the past (Dear Esther, Everybody's gone to Rapture).
I'm a little worried that they won't be able to nail the fun cheesiness that the first game had.
I don't like how the trailer is only focused on combat. The first Bloodlines is notorious for having shit combat system but the social/roleplay elements are what makes it so beloved. Also what's with the music? So melodramatic, again what >>319225
said. The first game's charm laid in its sense of comedy and how it didn't take itself seriously. I'm a little worried nonnas, but I'll try to hope for the best.

Yes it’s a lot of fun. I miss it and it’s definitely a game I wish I could go back and play for the first time again. I think I’m going to get the Persona 3 reboot when it comes out.

God same, they replaced the whole eng cast for the P3 remake & some of them are so annoying. I only play with the original voices because 2 of the VAs are very dear to me, so I couldn't care less about the eng ones. I'm tired of seeing their faces and forced tweets they make so people draw them with the actual characters.
In general, I dislike how the western side of everything (be it VAs or writters) interact with the fanbase so much, I feel there should be a healthy distance between both, they're workers not influencers who need constant advertising. Like you said, it's specially bad because sometimes these interactions force writters to make story changes and all.
I'm not looking forward to the P3 remake at all because of the game itself, I can replay P3P whenever I want anyway even though I have the PSP version with only the mediocre English voices, but as soon as I knew the dub would be made by a new cast I was sure this would happen. It's so tiring. At least Atlus doesn't butcher their localizations too much besides making characters who call each by their last names in Japanese call each other by their first names in English, and hopefully the P3 remake won't be butchered either but given the kind of new fans they've attracted who knows.
There's a cutesy mobile game about cookies or some shit that's popular with girls in general, including fujoshi, and I saw one of the voice actors who's a gay guy sperging about fujoshi and yaoi being problematic
(you know, his audience) and how he wants to voice characters from "queer" anime… by posting promotional pictures of yaoi like Given, made by fujoshi. Like even if you dislike yaoi and fujoshi you can see how he's a liability for the devs at the very least.>they're workers not influencers
Some of them nowadays are literally just youtubers or just know someone who knows someone who gave them a role.
Your post is unrelated to my initial point. My first post was about how Western voice actors of Japanese games like to push their shitty "memes" and jokes and headcanons on Western fans as if we fucking cared because they didn't make the games. I'm clearly not talking about pieces of shit like Takahito Sakurai who cheated on his wife AND his mistresses or Tatsuhisa Suzuki cheating on his much more famous wife with a crazy fangirl and attempting suicide because it costed him roles and he got harassed for being a cheater because they're actual scandals and unrelated to their jobs.
>Eastern male seiyuus/actors can maintain jobs even if they're abusers, racist, misogynistic, etc.
Depends on a lot of things, regardless of fame, if they're suspected of taking drugs with no proof their entire lives are over (applies to literally everyone there), if they're cheaters it depends on if it's a normal affair or if they're even more heinous than usual, then you have cases like the guy who voices Otoya harassing a new seiyuu when doing another role and getting away with it somehow, then you have Tsudaken apologizing to his fangirls for… being happily married and having kids and raising his kids with his wife. But again, completely unrelated to my initial point.
Yeah I was dissapointed with the remake as well when I saw it wasn't a complete version (and my heart breaks a little everytime I see a cool new art or scene and remember FeMC won't have one as well), but I can't like, P3 is a game very close to me and I love what we have seen of the remake so far. Per usual Atlus seems to refuse opening EU preorders though, so I don't know if I will be able to get it on release kek.
Oh god, are you talking about Cookie Run? I used to love it, but due to my phone being from 2016 it stoped supporting the game shortly after CR Kingdom released. The fandom was unbearable back them, but from the little I have seen it seems nowadays is x10 worse.
Laughting at that gay guy, the company just hires anybody huh…. I remember there were 2 canon lesbian characters, which is fine, but they seem to go full-on woke now and do anything to appeal that crowd since they give them money, some months ago I saw on a thread they included made-up pronouns on the Spanish translation for "non-binary" cookies.>>319876
We are talking about VAs being anoying on social media. Everyone is aware men can mantain their jobs even if they're scum, both in Japan and everywhere else in the world, that's besides the point. A person doesn't have to be a rapist for you to cringe at them.
Destiny 3000+ hours since 2016
Warframe 900+ hours since 2017
then Genshin? I've played almost every day for 2 years so it's probably more then the couple of 100+ hour RPG playthroughs.
Kingdom got really popular with tiktok and twitter kids so it was doomed from the start.
I miss Cookie Run in like, 2017-2019, it didn't have a huge English fandom yet and Ovenbreak hadn't ruined itself with updates.
kek don't be embarrassed nonna, I have almost 100 hours for it on Steam
1. Animal Crossing New Leaf / Animal Crossing New Horizons (around 400 hours in both)
2. Fallout 4 (around 220 hours)
3. Planet Zoo / Baldurs Gate 3 (around 120 hours but I am still playing BG3 so it'll probably beat fallout)
1. Animal Crpssing New Leaf (1583 h)
2. Pokemon XY (721 h. I guess it's all shint hunting, because I remember didn't like the game itself kek)
3. Persona 3 Portable (409 h)
The Wii doesn't a game timer so I don't know where I would place it, but I'm sure ACCF would rank very high as well, played it religiusly during 2008-2012. I think my very first save of Pokemon Pearl was 800-somthing hours, but since I don't have any photo and the save is long deleted, I can't confirm for sure.
Mordhau (4,965+ hours)
Rimworld (749+ hours)
The isle (510+ hours)
Don't Starve Together
I get that, but in my opinion if you engage in a lot of media from a country, its always best to try and learn that language. Localization for games in the west is pretty ass, so I like to try and learn the language to help me translate myself. For JRPGs, I play with English subtitles but keep the Japanese audio so I can at least get the emotion and vocal range that everyone is meant to hear. I've also been studying Japanese for a long time so it's not really an issue to me. But it's understandable why it's an issue if you don't know some of that language, or feel bothered by needing to look up nuances that are missed/lines that are changed.>>319937
No need to get hostile, what I said wasn't misconstrued their post. Just using it as an example. I'm taking about something a little different, not too in relation to what she was talking about. This is public, so people can comment on discussions people have

Anyone playing Blasphemous 2?
I've seen what that same guy did for FF14 and I think it's safe to assume he's being weird for changing a lot of lines for no reason whatsoever, making characters speak way more formally than they usually do or even like Shakespeare rose from his grave and got hired by Square Enix, making characters sounding sarcastic or bitchy instead of enthusiastic or just neutral which makes the characters seem very different. A friend of mine is very into FF14 and showed me a bunch of cutscenes and in Japanese, English and French and basically all the languages/localizations are similar to each other except for the English localization which makes shit up all the time. I'm talking about replacing one line with one entire paragraph, or young looking female characters speaking like young adults in all the languages and yelling like a chainsmoking grandma in English (I think it was a fairy who spoke like that, it was so bad I laughed for like 5min straight). To be fair it's not nearly as bad as when I started FF5 in English and could barely play because some of the characters had pirate accents and it was unreadable so I dropped it early.
>highly encouraging JP players to give the game in English a try after their first play through.
I don't think I've seen any of them do that. At most they retweet scenes in English with "these lines are different it's weird/funny/interesting!"
>Just learn Japanese.
Already done. I still need to learn more words but I'm not too worried about grammar.

here with an update:
Holy shit this game is so goddamn addicting. I woke up this morning with the music in my head. I played during my lunch break today. Holy shit I love this game. I’ve never played a JRPG before and I was bracing myself for cringe but I feel like the clouds have parted and I suddenly GET IT. Thank you nonas

Spoilers for Pentiment act 3. I finally finished Pentiment after so many recommendations. It was wonderful. I got spoiled here and there but still was surprised by the ending which was very satisfying. And I thought to take a small browse at the community only to see gendie shit seeping in this as well. I fucking can't forgive asexuality for setting back feminism so much. That a woman who doesn't have to choose between living as a nun in an oppressive place or a wife who will have to give birth to children for some moid who doesn't see you as human is asexual lol.

Working on a list of 'girlcore' games with my friends
Main way I'm categorizing games is
>Not an abundance of autistic shit that is for moids and troons
>Not crappy shovelware
>Not a ton of obnoxious gacha and microtransactions
>Sizable female fandom
If you guys have any recommendations I would love to add them and eventually do a chart or something.
Fucking love Hello Charlotte.
Every survival craft game is for women. Also mystery/ puzzle games. Also resource/time management games. Girl games reflect the truth that women are meant to rule society.
File: 1694567303891.jpeg (793.98 KB, 2400x1350, story_of_seasons_wonderful_lif…)
Good looking list so far, makes me smile to see so many games I love on it already. I would personally add: >Theatrythm, Rhythm Heaven, Rhythm Thief & The Emperor's Treasure, Nintendogs, Bratz: Rock Angelz, Bratz: Forever Diamondz (those were the only two Bratz games I played, idk how the other ones are), Picross, Yoshi games, Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido, Horizon Zero Dawn, Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls Online [MMO], Cities Skylines (producer and lead designer are women, most streamers are women), and Control 
+1 to Bloodborne but with the disclaimer that it's autistically difficult. You wouldn't think from first appearances that it has a sizable female fandom but it does.
If you're recommending Yakuza, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology might be a good fit too. A little hesitant because there is some scrotey stuff included in one of the DLCs [Bathing in Mana] (not as severe as Yakuza has) but I feel the DLC balances it out with pandering equally to women too. The original is a bit too grindy for my tastes but I feel the remake + DLC makes the pace perfect. I just don't have the patience or time for the grinding that old RPGs expected out of you.
Also you might want to put a note that the Harvest Moon games changed to being called Story of Seasons around 2013. Picrel is the newer remake of the old Harvest Moon: Wonderful Life + Another Wonderful Life combined.
The newer Natsume games without Marvelous Inc's involvement that are under the Harvest Moon name are NOT like the old Harvest Moon games. They're awful.

Here's where I'm at thus far! I wasn't sure where to place some of the games recommended or if some of the games recommended were actually popular with female players (or just troons) but I'm definitely up for adjustments!
Also added a few feminine recommendations of my own
>>321029>I might separate the BL (Fujo) games from the otome (yume) games
I considered that but there's only one well known nsfw otome game and I just put in one of my favorites for the sfw category (since most BLVNs are nsfw) so I think it's easier to just put it as joseimuke and split it into nsfw and sfw
It's possible I'll change my mind on this, but I also think it's a bit easier to just write 'nsfw' joseimuke games. >>321037
Definitely adding Hogwarts Legacy, I just keep forgetting to put it in haha.
okami, pikmin, most sonic games, oneshot, the dog island, little big planet, petz dogz 2, pony friends, zoo tycoon, maplestory, neopets, mario kart, splatoon, minecraft, wolfquest, snacko (not released yet but it looks promising). I haven't played it myself but one of the persona games (persona 3 iirc) has a playable female mc that you can romance the guys as so maybe that too. there's a lot of women who like resident evil games because leon is hot so maybe re also?
If it's just games that aren't porny and violent that really includes a ton of stuff though. Or does 'autistic shit' also include like war game strategy and other super meta kind of games?
Destiny? Or is games as a service too much like gatcha? It has a lot of important female characters.
I wouldn't know what games I play have 'sizable female fandoms' cause I don't use twitter/reddit.
I feel like in the gaming sphere they're considered masculine (like the competitive scene is primarily men but that's because women are bullied out of it) and lotta dicks preventing VC from being used as a woman but not so masculine that all mainstream rep is male gaming so I'd say masculine but leaning into unisex. Maybe more masculine for things like Among Us, more feminine for FFXIV.
Depends on the community, there's a lot more popular Asian Women who play games like this, that's primarily where I see women playing this mainstream like twitch.
But if we're making a feminine game list I say they count, we know there's a significant female fanbase, even if the males don't.

High school dreams. Unironically. It’s actually really amusing, the MC is really sassy and you can date so many different guys or essentially bully them kek
Another one is the Desperate Housewives game. It’s like the sims 2 with a murder mystery plot.

Me again kek. Just wanted to also recommend Americas Next Top Model game and Supple. Both are shittier than the desperate housewives game but has a similar sims 2 knockoff vibe. They’re hilarious though. The most melodramatic mean girl games ever kek. More grown up than the Bratz games.>>321111
I feel like a lot of the games on anon’s list aren’t made for kids at all. The games I’ve recommended are for teens in the 2000s but they still have more sassy dialogue than games today. It’s like watching a 2000s chick flick which is fun!

That makes them ''girlcore''? them being the videogame version of crappy movies made by pedophile hollywood execs that think all women are sassy highschoolers that want to be cheerleaders and date chad? I play AoE, Wizardry8 and Payday2, and since i play them and i am a woman i declare those autistic games womancore. Keep your shovelware trash to yourself.

I may have mentioned this game a few times here, but I will always shill hearts medicine - time to heal. Its a great time management game with a cheesy plot (imagine something like a goofy version of desperate housewives, but also a wholesome one). Its an amazing game and i think its extremely underrated. I haven't played the other games from the same series (people didn't seem to like the plot from the next ones all that much). If you are a nonna who misses CakeMania-like games, i suggest to buy it on sale.
