Got Titanfall 2 with PS+ a while back and finally beat it.
Story is cliche and lame but the parkour is so fun, it's too bad they got so much success with Apex Legends that they probably gave up on making another game with a single player campaign.
When the last merc just gets away after slapping the 'APEX' card down, fff.
And I knew something was going to happen to BT because I got minorly spoiled, but then they fake out killing him only to really kill him 10 minutes later… but then the weird helmet beeping in the after credits scene that'll lead to nothing now.

Now It's Doom Eternal next.
And anybody played Control? I have that from PS+ too and I saw a cool screenshot recently so I feel I should play that soon.

No. 359105

Control is great - a fun mash up of x files type inspo with a consistently creepy brutalist aesthetic. If you enjoy it, the story and characters overlap in a lot of other Remedy games, so you've got lots of post game options!

No. 359180

Somebody mentioned Chants of Sennaar last thread, it looked cool and I've been meaning to try out the demo. Immediately mistook the glyph for 'you' as 'river'…
But it's still easy enough to finish the objective just by there only being a few things you can interact with.
I'll play it sometime.

But it reminds me that if it was some old game without achievements I'd just pirate it without thinking. But now if I want the achievements I have to buy it, but also I don't know if I should get it on Steam/PSN/or the Microsoft Store if it's there.

What was the last game you got truly obsessed with? I'm talking shovelling 150+ hours into it no problem in a matter of weeks level obsessed. I'm not in a good place lately and need something to really take me out of it.
My last one was picrel when it released.

Which of the first two Silent hill is worth playing? I was waiting to play the remake instead but it seems like people are not liking it so I wonder if it would be better to play the original games instead. Also does it have jumpscares? I hate those kek

If you like shooting games and old school SCPs you’ll probably love Control.

No. 359321

File: 1709223082820.jpg (41.3 KB, 650x650, Silent-Hill.jpg)

They're both worth playing in my opinion. They have selectable difficulty levels, so you should be able to get through them even if you aren't used to survival horror.The first game has tank controls but you'll soon get used to them.
There aren't too many deliberate jump scares from what I remember. In both games you have a radio that plays static when monsters are near, so it's rare that they'll catch you completely by surprise.

Definitely Outer Wilds. I finally got around to playing it and for once the hype is well deserved. I got so into it I ended up dreaming about what I was gonna do next in the game kek. Worth forcing myself to play despite having a bad case of motion sickness with first person games

No. 359345

File: 1709229279524.png (1.09 MB, 640x900, image.png)

i'd really recommend all three as the first game was really fantastic at setting up the whole series in regards to the lore of silent hill and the cult especially which isn't really explored in 2 but just used as a jumping off point. 2 is fantastic as a standalone game, but i feel like you really are missing a lot if you don't know the underlying lore of the town even if it works. I'd 110% recommend the 3rd one if you play the games, it follows up on the story started in 1 and the mc Heather is one of my favourite female characters of all time along with Claudia. it brings the series to a very satisfying conclusion and if you ignore the following games, you could see the ending of the 3rd game being the end of it all.
the first one is really, really old feeling though so if that's a turn-off then maybe watch a "movie the game" of the 1st one then play the others. it's not a bad game at all, it's just rather janky if you're not used to older games. make sure auto-aim is on for 1 and 2 at least, trust me, it's not about skill kek
also get a map or no-spoiler list of the things you need to get the good+ endings, in the first game you can very easily miss a required object for the good ending. no idea on the other games as i didn't play them without a guide after the first one. oh the old days of gaming where you had to read the dev's mind lol

No. 359380

I personally like the first 4 games. They were all made by the same devs and are coherent even if they aren't necessarily a linear story. The first game is great to understand the setting. Though you can play 2 separately, it's much more interesting if you understand some of the lore behind it. 3 is a sequel to 1 and I like how it wraps up. 4 is much different than the others, when it came out some people hated it, but I still like it very much and recommend it. I also suggest getting the different endings for them, though some are tricky to get, follow a guide if you need, what influences the endings can be very subtle and have no indication on the game. Any game after those 4 I wouldn't touch.

No. 359381

Samefag to add, the 4 games are centered around the city and the cult. So at least watching the gameplay for the first game is a must. It's the game that explain it's origin and sets the motion for all others to happen.

No. 359430

I loved this game, it was beautiful and haunting, and after I played it I got super into learning about quantum mechanics. So fun and creepy.

No. 359444

I've bought FF12 for my Switch Lite three months ago (since my old PS2 version of the game decided by 2010 to stop working on me) and I've already put 68 hours into it. There's just the mechanic "right weather to trigger hunts" that's being frustrating right now so I've switched to Ni no Kuni 2, which I bought on sale last week or the week before, and I've already put 48-48 hours into it.

No. 359447

AYRT, can you or another nonna tell me what's so compelling about it?
I've heard about this game several times and I'm definitely interested, but every time it comes with the caveat of "don't read anything about it" so I'm scared to look things up in case I spoil myself. Being able to make an informed purchase would be great, though.

No. 359452

if you want as much information as possible this video might be enough.
I played it last year and I loved it, it really felt like I was on some beautiful, immersive journey through space and ancient civilizations and making strange alien friends. it does have a huge "optimistic nihilism" theme though and a few puzzles so if you hate the sound of that maybe avoid it.

I've been playing all kinds of VNs for years and I'm not beyond playing trashier ones kek. somewhat interested in how it plays out because the origin system reminds me a bit of Dragon Age and I wonder if it will do anything interesting with it and the horror elements. probably not gonna touch it until the full game comes out.

No. 359671

Back in the Destiny 1 days, I (and many other women) would use the ps3’s built in voice changer. It mostly worked for me because I’m an alto. But, if you have a very soft and feminine voice, just pitching your voice down with the default pitch tools won’t sound natural. Look into something like Voicemod if that’s the case for you.

No. 359889

Anons, what kind of games are you good at, and what genres do you avoid because you can't play them?
I'm mediocre when it comes to my favourite genres, like RPGs and all that, but I think I'm good at collecting/crafting games, grindy games and dungeon crawlers.
On the other hand, I'm shit at FPS/shooting/aiming games (except for games where you hunt like Horizon Zero Dawn) and puzzle games like Tetris, Puyo Puyo, etc.
I think this is probably because I don't have good reflexes and my brain doesn't react fast, kek. I prefer games where I can set the pace and think things through.

No. 359894

Good at most games I'd say, 'general gamer skill' which sounds so stupid. Bad at MOBA's and I dislike online multiplayer games in general so I've never gotten good at them. Bad at JRPG's in the sense that I don't have patience for them any longer.

No. 359906

I'm horrid at mobas, specifically the 5v5 maps where each player has a specific role. I could never learn to coordinate well or bothered figuring out how each role should divide their time despite how formulaic it all is really. I played smite before a lot but I mostly stuck to assault, arena and 3v3 which I did fine at. I sucked at dota kek
On the other hand, I'm good at anything that is 3rd person and is action combat and requires quick reflexes and learning boss attack patterns. I also enjoy those types of games the most. I revel in the part where you memorize the whole fight for the first time and you don't have to rely on your thinking at all, it's just pure reflexes. Sends an adrenaline rush.
Everything else, it really depends.

No. 359915

NTA lol you barely even interact with them after the tutorial. You spend most of the game alone

No. 359921

I can't parry, so I can't get into action games that are heavy on that like Dark Souls etc.
Also don't like RTS kind of games cause it's just too slow and I'm not great at thinking ahead
Even though I'm only ok at FPS games and can't play on higher difficulties I still find them really fun though.

No. 359963

> what kind of games are you good at
RPGs, fighting games (Tekken, Super smash bros, Soul Calibur etc.), "racing" games (Mario kart etc.), casual puzzle games (We love Katamari, Warioware, Mario Party etc.), platformers (Hollow knight, Tomb raider etc ), retro gaming (like old NES/SNES/PSone/Game Boy color games I grew up on), text based games and visual novels.

>what genres do you avoid because you can't play them

FPSs and most war/shoot IRL opponents third person shooters cuz I can't aim for shit. The only ever exception in all my gaming life was RE4 cuz my youngest sister bought the game and was blocked at the first mission and wouldn't continue playing after I helped her and I wanted to know how the story continued. Any real racing games cuz fuck that shit, same with all the sports simulation games, fucking hate it. MMO, whether it's a MoBA like League of Legends or MMORPG because I grew up on console gaming, we had the internet late and I had enough games on console to entertain myself. The only MMO back then we would do IRL was fighting games, Eye Toy 3 or Wii sports bowling (those who know, know).
Stealth games. Played some MGS as a kid, always sucked at the stealth. I remember even my father gifting my a Splinter cell game, never even moved on from the tutorial.
And finally horror games. I'm too much of a flake to play them, I can only watch people play. I remember having a PS2 demo of Forbidden Siren and I could legit not move from the spot where the character, a little girl, was hiding in a cursed and haunted hospital to get to the elevator because the atmosphere was too goddamn scary.

No. 359964

Puzzle games, card games, horror games, roguelikes, strategy games and 3rd person action games. I'm not good at shooters, just average. I can get by without too much trouble.
Fighting games, online shooters and mobas. I'm dogshit at these 3. I'll never play them. I dont understand fighting games, mobas are the most boring thing on earth to me, and online shooters are just annoying. The only shooter I've enjoyed was TF2 and I sucked ass, had to play pyro or engie all the time.

I'm really good at rhythm games, 2d platformers. Ok with bullet hell, MOBAs (unwillingly from being forced to play hours of LoL with friends), RPGs, strategy games like civ

>What games are you bad at

Pretty much all shooters especially PvP. Competitive PvP in general tbh. Splatoon is the exception but it's so different from every other shooter out there. Soulslike games, mainly because memorizing a boss's moveset after countless deaths is not fun for me. Card games like MTG and hearthstone too.

anon jsyk you don't need to parry to play soulsborne games (except sekiro.) i have thousands of combined hours in dark souls, bloodborne and elden ring and i have parried maybe like 2 times. join us!

No. 360009

You talking about playing as a mage or something else? I thought parrying was sorta essential to melee in those games. There's other reasons I don't play them though, no difficulty selector, medieval fantasy aesthetic, super minimal storytelling.

Any examples?
That whole thing with Eidos and the Embracer Group is because they were expecting a giant investment from some Saudi's that fell through, but maybe that was a good thing.
I was sorta annoyed with so many companies being bought by Microsoft and Sony buying Bungie, but it's probably good to have a stable money base behind them.

No. 360010

yeah magic and such are all very strong in dark souls/elden ring, so is simply dodging or using a shield to block. they aren't THAT hard, just require a little more brainpower than buttonmashing the first time you play through, so i try to tell anyone interested in them to not listen to elitist dudebros and check them out

Not that anon but, even though magic is a good alternative for those who don't want to bother with melee combat, parrying isn't necessary at all; rolling is enough. You can also go for a sturdy shielding build if you want even more leniency with the combat.
I know the Dark Souls games have a reputation of being super hard, but they really aren't, they just require a little bit of patience

Not directed at you nona, but reading your post it just hit me that men spend their entire lives never having to consider if a game is worth it over coomershit that objectifies them. There is just no equivalent, the only games with "sexy" males are like little joke games with body builder characters that look like that as a joke. I don't even know how I would explain it to a male to make him understand, they don't get why it's so draining to see it. Closest thing I can think of is that it would be like telling a leftoid/rightoid to play a really great game, with the only catch being that every character in the game is an outspoken supporter of the opposite political side of them even though it's fully unrelated to the plot. Rightoids can't even handle seeing a person wearing a mask in public, and try getting a leftoid to admit a troon is a man… they just full on rage.

And despite the coomery elements to some of the female designs, there's still at least a wide enough variety that I'm seeing plenty of women I can personally get into… I'm in love with picrel and Berenice. What units/builds have you been enjoying?
I really recommend any nonna curious tries the demo! Definitely one of the best demos I've played in years, with how much freedom and content it offers you.

Rpgs, rpgs that involve strategy or just general strategy (CKII?), platformers; honestly I mostly play rpgs. Fallout games, elder scrolls games, mgs games, etc. Fps? If the shootings parts of those games count as fps then yes, I'm pretty decent. Survival strategy games (Rimworld?), just mainly action games I think
Multiplayer except mmorpg because I just personally don't like most multiplayer. Unless it's team based and without vc.

This game has been like crack to me since it debuted Friday. Highly recommend to any nonnas who like strategy shit.
Story isn't worth much but honestly most JRPG attempts to seriously engage with political intrigue and war piss me off with how poorly thought out they are so I don't mind that it doesn't even try here. All of the support conversations between units are very cute, though.
And it goes without saying that the graphics are beautiful since it's a Vanillaware title.

I played a lot of games in choicescript but I have been recently trying some twine games. Unfortunately I don't know many twine authors besides the choiceofgames forum refugees I think it was thanks to the nft drama people left. Since then, some have came back quietly, which is funny as hell, they have no principles but I guess I am expecting too much from handmaidens and gaydens.
So since I played lots of choicescript Imma talk about them:
I started with Choice of Robots and Hollywood Visionary (this last one is free but you gotta wait like 2 hours before playing the next chapter unless you pay for it).
I really like Hollywood Visionary. The romance in it is quite shallow, I was not expecting any romance at all but since it was there, I just wish it was less generic. Seriously, I'd rather romance our funny friend there (forgot his name) because he's got more personality. There isn't much reaction when it comes to your character being gay either but I suppose this has to do with the author trying to sanitize things because he was a cog writer and it's kinda mandatory so these games tend to avoid "problematic" content even when it could serve the story, I mean, it's 1950 and you can be a commie, there is a whole chapter about it and you can even end up being blacklisted, but I am supposed to believe people respect my pronouns even kek
I do wish there were more games like this though.

Played Heroes Rise which I think the first one was for free at some point, dunno if it still is. I love super hero games and this one was the first I played, but the railroading made me not buy the others, I noticed the choices don't matter much because I did initially like this game so I obviously played it again. Don't recommend unless it's free so you know what to not do if you ever want to write a game kek
Also played Psy High because powers but it's not a rec unless you really have the patience for school kids drama, it was kinda fun though but I wouldn't play it again. Don't remember if this one was free, maybe not. Def don't rec if you have to pay for it, not worth the money.

Paid games that I liked:
I liked Rent-a-Vice despite some railroading, this one is not free and I am sad there aren't more scifi games like this also where your character is not a blushing retard in their 20s. I, Cyborg was really fun too, def recommend of you're into that kind of stuff.
Heroes of Myth. Don't care about the romance so can't comment on it. Been a while since I read it but I remember having lots of fun being a loser wizard faking a prophecy.

Not a favorite but from cog there is also choice of the vampire and it's still free I think, the story was quite short I am guessing because I didn't engage in romance, so I didn't like it much. Only played it once though, felt the writing was dull and it had too many choices that did not reflect in the narrative (maybe I missed them or they are just not there?) The author is the retarded power tripping moderator of cog so maybe that explains it, he's got a stick up his ass seriously, this guy (Jason Stevan-Hill) bans people for no reason and if you go to chooseyourstory(dot)com you get a bunch of cog drama archived. There was also this author who accused a published cog author of plagiarism and Jason shut down all discussion and refused to engage with the accusations which makes me think she is probably right, I didn't play either game but I really hate Jason and seen him being completely unreasonable many times. Fucker also moderates the reddit sub, which many prople complained as they go there to speak their mind since cog is overmoderated

Now for hosted games (paid)
Zombie exodus, it gets rec a lot and I played a bit but didn't like it enough to go past the demo. I do like all the choices and how some are reflected in the narrative, but I guess the player character felt like an unperson if that makes sense, like, had no personality of their own and this is probably the first thing that throws me out of the game.

Unnatural, I don't remember much but I guess it's like Psy High grown up, never played the sequel. I don't think it's bad but I remember stopping playing it because it felt like a chore. I think it has to do with the other characters, I remember them annoying the hell out of me kek I think it might also have something to do with me being fed up of playing young whimpy characters/school settings after Rent-a-Vice and Parenting Simulator

Parenting Simulator
Apparently the author said this story was not very popular, and I guess you can see why when hg and cog have lots of games on school settings. But I like it, look, I just like having kids in games for some reason, there are a lot of games where you are the kid or the student, and I'd love to play one where I am the one teaching them the ropes, but there aren't many games like that. Would be fun to be an old hero training their successor.. I am still waiting for that game, one day someone will write it and I hope it won't have to be me.

Speaking of heroes, there is Community College Hero and Unsupervised (wip so it's free for now). I know I said I was fed up of school settings and teenagers but what can I do? They wear capes! Unsupervised is really fun and I can be unhinged Superboy. If superdad ever comes back from that suicide mission he will be so disappointed and I live and breath for that. Unsupervised is written by a man but he's got another game I like (Highlands, Deep Waters) and I have no complaints. To me it's obvious this guy watched/read the same cartoons/comics I did, Unsupervised does feel like Young Justice at some points. All good in my book.

Community College Hero series has a few games and I like it well enough to keep playing, like it checks all the boxes Heroes Rise didn't, but something about the writing felt dull, like, I dunno, it could be better and the romance sucks but you can play without romancing anyone because there is a plot so that's good. I don't remember if that one was finished, the author kinda disappeared from the forums, guess he is taking a break.

Fallen Hero is another cape game but the writer is a woman and is leagues better than most authors that also write superhero games but she is an enby retard that is almost 50 years old and used to identify as a lesbian, so that really makes me sad. She was cancelled some time ago on tumblr for not getting involved in discord drama, something to do with american politics, she is not even american kek now wish she'd drop the trannyism but she gets lots of messages thanking her for the story that it helped them to figure out they're trans, shit is really depressing, the game has troon shit but you can pretty much avoid it as long as you don't make your mc trans. I made my mc trans by accident once, I think selecting some choice that felt like I was just going to be gnc or "I don't care what people think of me" made me non binary or questioning, I dunno, I totally got it wrong but in my defense I stopped drinking the troon juice years ago and can't recognize that shit anymore Fallen Hero is very popular and 2 books are already released, book 3 is a wip in early stages and you're a hero turned villain.
Since the author is a handmaiden tif, I have more criticism, and this is in regards to her gay male character that can get in a romance with a female as long as she doesn't identify as a woman. I remember people raging at the "homophobes" in the forum/tumblr aka the straight women that asked the author to make said gay character bi. I don't even know where to start with this mess, gaydens calling straight readers homophobes because they wanted to romance a gay character is a fucking game book. It's better if I just go back to the games… so

Highlands, Deep Waters
You're investigating a muder but something worse is going on. Obviosly lovecraftian type of story. I like that I can be a cop and the overall creepy atmosphere. There isn't much romance there either, and it really doesn't matter, it is better without it.

Speaking of cops, my biggest disappointment with hosted games: Wayhaven Chronicles. Basically Twillight but you're a cop. When I bought it I thought it was going to be a story of a muggle detective in contact with supernatural shit, but nah, it's just romance with some weak plot, I'm not trying to trash the game, it's just that I bought something based on the marketing blurb and it was a lie. Probably not the author's fault, but man, imagine buying a muggle cop story with chances of muder mystery and then finding out Edward… I mean, Adam and Nate want to bang me. They're Ava and Natalie in my game cus I played a guy attracted to women but still… I just wanted to shoot vampires and I fired my gun once in the entire game. Heard later that the author hates guns…. why the fuck am I a cop then??? Couldn't I be a intrepid reporter? That'd be fun too. Also since it's a cash cow series, you bet you only hold hands in the first book, don't remember if I can actually kiss the characters, wasn't really invested in the romance aspects, I sure ain't wasting my money on vampires ever again. There are currently 3 books released if I remember correctly, more to come.

Special mention of my favorite dead wip:
From Ashes We Rise, you could be Jason Todd, that's all you need to know. Because it's dead. The author was last seen in 2019 and this is a wip started in 2015, I don't think she is ever coming back even though I pray everyday I am wrong.

You're right about it looking like a shitty skyrim mod, the background looks copy-paste from Skyrim and the girls look like when you mod the npcs too much so they stick out weird. And even if we took this as a stupid porn mod, the outfits don't even look sexy. It looks like an outfit made by an autistic moid who thinks more skin = better so you get panty designs that don't flatter a woman's pubic area and whatever the fuck is around her jaw. If you told me his was a screenshot of a mod from nexus I'd believe you. If you asked a straight female artist to draw sexy fantasy armour you'd get something better I'd bet.
Also I hate that moids are acting like this game succeeding will be "proof" of what gamers want from big studios as if porn games don't already exist with demographics and numbers we can see. Not to mention they're usually the most pirated and this is a ps5 exclusive anyways so it's not really going to show anything new vs the countless other porn titles that do ok there. And the retards who meme themselves into buying it are probably better off just rebuying the newest edition skyrim and modding it anyways. This straight up looks bad and I doubt it's going to actually be a blip on the gamer radar after the initial release. It's not going to be replacing Baldur's Gate for what the studios see gamers wanting unless they realize they can scam coomers for microtransactions easier. But then expect porn games more coming out like EA sports titles and Gacha games

I agree but I think this about all sandbox games. Part of the appeal of them for me is creating like lived in worlds with groups of friends, like for example whenever me and my friends start a Minecraft server we always make a bunch of lore and stuff to make things more entertaining. The one time we played Starbound together it was really fun colonizing the whole solar system and creating little colonies everywhere with unique histories kek.

i read a handful a few years ago but haven't read much since. but i loved Tally Ho, its a comedy story about being a butler and getting into silly and dumb situations. some people don't like the humor but its really my type (and i wanted my boss to be my husbando). i also liked A Study in Steampunk, it was a short Johnlock inspired detective cog that i ended up loving. there is also a philosophical story called Creatures Such As We; an emotional story about loneliness. i can't sell these well because i'm autistic but i hope someone reads one of them

and speaking of trannies, i tried to play a cog called 'Heart of the House' and it had this cringy scene where you're forced to get undressed by an enby servant and the story purposely doesn't tell you its sex. jarring when the story was normal until then..

No. 363178

Backtracking for timed events isn’t worth it imo, only do it if you need to. I hope you enjoy the game, thinking about it is making me want to play it again. Some of the side quests are really fun and give you some really cool stuff, at first I kind of ignored them but regretted it when I started going back for them… some of them were probably more trouble then they were worth though.

No. 363209

I heard of Study in Steampunk, always get recommended but I haven't tried yet, sounds interesting. Now, Creature Such As We is free I think, so I might try soon. Tally Ho is not my cup of tea, it's very popular though. There is Jolly Good by the same author, not really a sequel but it takes place in the same universe if I am not mistaken.

Enby characters always sound to me like they're meant to be women. Only a few times where I thought the enby character was meant to be a guy and that is when the author provide art of said character, throne of ashes by 13leagues comes to mind, that enby guy even gets misgendered by his dad I think kek, and then he asks my pronouns double kek shame cus that story could be good, some paths sound interesting. I think it's funny how this author wants to be accomodating of the delicate tranny crowd (lets be honest, they're all tifs. That story could've come straight out of a YA novel) all while writing "problematic" content I always avoid the enby characters if I can, it's so awkward, especially when the author uses them as mouthpiece plus very annoying to read the singular they, gets really confusing after some time but you can't really say it in the cog forum without getting dogpiled. Unfortunately enby characters are everywhere now if the author wants to be "inclusive". Rip characters turned xir/them I shall never bother to get to know.

Well, the fallen hero author said she used to write horror. Maybe when she is done with fallen hero we get some nice horror by her? Would be nice, or honestly any other established author. I just lost hope on new authors, most horror wips in the forum get abandoned or focus way too much on romance and the plot feels secondary. The genre simply isn't that popular so I guess they have to sprinkle some romance to attract readers but it keeps getting in the way instead of complementing the narrative.
There is also the problem of them sounding pretty similar too, my guess is that these new authors are very young and get inspired by the exact same media that happens to be popular at the moment.

I played Bravely Default yesterday for several hours, kept the 3ds charged and removed the charger for the night. I'm charging it again this morning because it's not fully charged yet and it's not charging at all. I'm worried, I hope my 3DS isn't dead yet. I'm panicking because I have no other charger to try and see if the problem just comes from this and it's a Sunday so it's not like I can just buy a new one right now.

I have to check what's on my sd card and what's on my console because I don't remember anymore. I bought a bigger sd card at some point because of Atlus not release physical copies of their games in Europe but I don't remember how and what I transfered in the bigger sd card. The battery isn't swelling, but I actually had a nightmare like two days ago about that for some reason kek I'm cursed or I can predict the future because it's one hell of a coincidence. My usual retro game stores might sell more 3DS and know who can repair them so if I try to charge mine with another charger and it's still not working I'll ask them what to do, the owners and employees are super nice because I'm a regular costumer. I know they also sell universal chargers with a USB port for different consoles so, I'll get one just in case as well. I really, really hope the issue doesn't come from the port.

NTA but buy only original chargers, not the universal ones. Back when the 3DS XL came out I had no idea they didn't come with chargers and I got a DS/3DS one and it stoped working after awhile, plus they're a bit more potent than original chargers and will kill the battery faster.

I've been seeing so much stuff (not on lolcow) about certain games being "stressful" and it's a complete mindfuck to me. Getting into a car accident, moving, work deadlines, THAT'S stressful. Playing a shooter isn't. Like, please start treating yourselves like adults.

Me! I liked the first one a lot even if the npcs were a bit annoying and when it was announced i was quite hyped but i didn't keep up with the development, i have to finish some other games first so i hope to hear good things once it's out!

I'm finally playing the RE4 remake, i'm at the last character but… remake Krauser looks really cute to me….also i don't remember the original too much, i think there was something like that but the wolf interactions were cute here

Haven't tried DD2 character creator but I did sink in over a hundred hours in black desert. I would definitely say that it's worth 99 cents just for the character creator alone. The whole game is indeed very very grindy, it's more of a resource manager and merchant/economist simulator than a mmorpg. I did however find the voice acting decent and main story endearing. Fighting monsters feels really good, it has the best combat I've seen in an mmo since Tera. You do have coomers running around but to be honest there's plenty of normal people playing as well. It's not the type of game you'd take too seriously, especially if you wish to play an mmoRPG and fully immerse yourself. The visuals are absolutely stunning and environmental ambience is very polished as well, I definitely say it's well worth the pricetag.

I'm not shocked that the West got over it so quickly, though. They love to just say "Korean gender politics are more complicated than we can understand" and then just smoothbrain their way through taking any accountability for their consumerism. When what they're finding "complicated" is the reality of a first-world culture in which the irreprehensible nature of men is still so transparently visible instead of being veiled under pseudo-leftist nonsense.

Romancing SaGa 2 (but a new SaGa game is coming out late April that is supposed to be a good entry point to the series), Moon Remix, and Trails in the Sky are my top 3 favorites.
Storywise, the Trails series is THE story-heavy JRPG series, so I'd recommend that the most for you. Your mileage may vary with later arcs, but the general consensus with other Trails nonnas on this site seems to be that the Skies games are one of the rare JRPGs that provide a fulfilling experience with a female lead.

I'd say so. Personally, I don't find real golf entertaining at all but have over 100 hours in walkabout. The game is designed in a way that allows you to pick it up relatively quickly. It's not too flashy, but the maps will keep you entertained. Some have gimmicks, but most of them are simple but charming minigolf maps.
Although I will say, it's more fun with friends/in a lobby. Playing solo and improving can be fun, but sharing strats and witnessing cool shots is what keeps me coming back. There's also the feature of everyone being able to play the DLC maps, as long as 1 person in the lobby has it. So if you ever pick it up and want to play with someone, feel free to ask here and I'll set up a lobby if I catch the post in time.

I'm pretty late but I am finally playing god of war on ps4 (came with the ps4 when I bought it) and I am absolutely loving it. My mom played the old ps2 gow games but I was never interested cus the protag is a violent bald buff man and I have no interest in greek and norse mythology so I couldn't see the appeal but I like he's got a kid in this one, so now we started playing it together (mostly me but she is there helping me to solve the puzzles and explore cus I miss so much stuff lol) and it's so fun. I love that kid, even when he goes "wish mom was here" when I am taking too long solving a puzzle. Thank God he dropped the "I am a God" bullshit, it was driving me crazy… and I realized I suck in a fight when I am all alone or he does whatever he wants, all my great combos and finishing moves happen after he goes zapping the enemies, so alone the fight lasts three times longer and I almost die trying to remember how to do certain moves, most of the time I have no idea what I just did and how kek. The story is quite easy to understand (for someone that knows nothing about gow) and a bit predictable though that is not really negative, I like it when I can go "I knew it" just by taking the details of the story. Since I am invested in the story now I might give the old games a try some day, but I'll definitely play the sequel once I finish this.

I see more people whining about how it's not fair that a game genre that revolves around being hard and needing practice isn't easier for them, like asking for platformers to have less jumping because you have shit depth perception and can't gauge jump distance.
Basically since Elden Ring came out and yknow what, Elden Ring proved that get gud worked. When people had the chance of missing out on this fantastic game because of a skill issue, they practiced and got good.

the thing about fromsoft games is that they make the games fair. save for a few notoriously dumb bosses, hidetaka miyazaki did not make his games with the sole purpose of fostering an elitist group of nerds to shout "git gud" at each other. his design philosophy is that a game should be challenging not to prove how good someone is at it so they can brag, but to make the player feel accomplished for overcoming extreme difficulties. in that, he succeeds wonderfully. it's not his fault losers spew the "git gud" thing. games that try to copy the "soulslike" formula never get it right, though. they aren't concerned with balancing difficulty and respite, but instead, they ARE made for those elitist losers who have to cling to video game accomplishments to feel good about their lack of other achievements. miyazaki cares a lot about player experience. he wants people to have fun. soulslike wannabes just want to boast a "hard" game for people to chatter about.

I genuinely had a good time with Dark souls 1, 2 and Bloodborne. I think that Elden Ring has a harder learning curb and I felt that when i first got through the beginning of the game. It forces you to play more aggressive, and I'm not super into that. Some of the bosses can be punishing, where I really just want to play a game casually. I hate what the souls fandom has become. Similar to >>366590
and their reddit-like views.
I think the first few games are actually a masterpiece, and it felt good to get through, but I couldnt finish Elden Ring, and I'm okay with that. Now when it comes to the shitty souls clone games, I hate them the most because they really don't know how to balance the system.

>Ogres only go after females
Tbf the elder orgres in BBI reverse that by only targeting males
But yeah DD1 definitely had a lot of weird vaguely sexist shit in regards to women. Like all the major female characters seem like weeb waifu stereotypes.
Mercedes the proud dark skinned warrior woman tomboy who gets humbled.
Madeline is slutty big boobed con-woman and you constantly bail her out of trouble.
The princess literally looks and acts like a child and the scene where her old man husband (twice her size ofc) strangled her on the bed is akin to rape scene. And you have to save her like a damsel.
Selene is the classic "she only looks 14, she's actually 200 years old you guys" combined with mystical goth girl stereotypes. And surprise surprise you save her.
Quina is the sweet girl next door who is so pure she literally becomes a nun which I always thought was stupid. Ironically the most proactive female character in the game after the nunnification.
Ophis the bandit queen is wearing a skirt with a boob armor corset. Compare that to male bandit leader with his cool armor and helmet.
The prostitutes in the city seemed to be programmed with the presumption that you're playing as a male arisen with a female pawn and ask you why you're playing with a doll instead of them.
And lets not forget the 'sill lingerie' that can only be worn by female characters.

You're right nonnie. Not only that but a ton of bosses in fromsoft games are perfectly cheeseable in hilarious ways and if you really find something too hard you'll find a way around it to make it easy.

Yes I did get the joke in the video kek. But let's be real, ds1 has a lot of hitbox issues. It can be quite frustrating
Actually funnily enough I had the most fun with DS2's bosses and hated 3's the most. DS1 is in the middle somewhere but overall thought the enemy and level design was the best. DS2 is supposedly better in the original form but only played scholar of the first sin (though I'm glad for story reasons), nearly gave up in the forest area because the ganks were just stupid but glad I didn't cause I had the most fun with it. I stopped taking it too seriously and stayed for the plot and an altered good time. I had a cheat engine turn off the petrification so I used every summon which was a lot of fun and gave some sweet story moments. They mostly ended up hilariously eating shit at the start of every boss fight so I'd be stuck with a boss with much higher health but I don't remember any bosses feeling unfair or miserable. Aside from the swamp area where I needed a guide, the middle of the game felt long but satisfying to go through. I also cheated about halfway through to double wield the blue flame which was fun as shit and looked pretty cool.
Also got to fight side by side with my waifu so weirdly enough despite knowing ds1 is the better game, I think I'm probably coming back to ds2 first and have more love for it overall in regards to story and characters I really cared for.

Only the dialogs changes a little compared to before and for some battles I'm only getting job points and no exp. Should I skip them in the next chapters or would I get more plot relevant cutscenes if I do these boss fights over and over again? I'll probably just get the last jobs and skip everything until the last boss fight.

No. 367001

Ironic because as much as Cold Steel was a dumpster fire, I still like it more than 3 Houses because the existing world building made it more compelling than the mess of Fodlan. Like, even if her design was retarded, Alisa grappling with her family's turmoil amidst their involvement in Erebonia's militarization was more interesting than, say, Edelgard's vendetta founded on stubborness and incomplete information. And both characters got watered down with waifu pandering anyways. I think both FE and Trails are similar cases of series losing their substance as they chase profitable trends in modern day (or rather, FE got elevated beyond something it ever was? It never really had the writing chops for serious war stories, the appeal beyond gameplay has always been on the ensemble cast with the player filling in the blanks.)
Estelle and Joshua were alright. As returning characters, I liked them better in the Crossbell arc but it was good to see Joshua get some of the closure you'd expect from an Erebonia arc.

No. 367014

No, I completely agree that FE never had that good of a writing, specially compared to Kiseki but if I'm going to play a semi-harem game I'd rather play something like FE where I can choose the gender of my self insert, romance whoever I want and also play matchmaker. Alisa is cool, I actually like her design, my main problem was that I didn't like Rean and the side cast - and the things I've seen/heard about the later Cold Steel games seems very wanky of his character.
That said, I did dislike the Black Eagles routes due to Edelgard's nonsensical reasoning.

Aw, maybe I'll look up some walkthrough of it on youtube to sate my curiosity

No. 367018

Reasonable opinions, that's totally fair. FE's structure works well for Fire Emblem, especially when the things you listed are what you go to it for. I honestly ended up liking Rean more than expected (more than Lloyd at least) but the sheer length of the Cold Steel arc and Persona-esque social link system were my biggest complaints… Like, I come to Trails for the lore and these games are crazy long. And they seriously thought it was a good idea to lock important details behind optional missables? Trails needs to be itself instead of stealing elements of FE and Persona that don't really work for it.
I'm looking forward to Kuro no Kiseki and hoping it's something of a return to form.
And yeah, I'd recommend that! No need to suffer through this longass arc for scraps.

This would be logistically difficult, especially with Falcom's limited resources, but if they split the game up a little like they did in Skies SC with the choice between Schera and Agate as your companion to allow players to choose between playing as a male or female character in some capacity, I'd be so happy.

Today I was reminded that Life is Strange existed, and also how much I hated Chloe. It's the reason I never played Before the Storm because it's just about Chloe and her not-gf that I also didn't like or care for. I don't know if other nonnies here played it and how they felt about her, because I've wondered before if I'm the weird one for disliking her since people talk about how she's actually the best friend ever and if you don't you just don't understand good character writing.
Playing matchmaker was always one of my favorite things in recent FE titles. I still need to play engage but I heard it only gets good later on. But I'm also craving a game again where romancing is secondary to the main game, it always makes me feel more attached to characters compared to otomege.

I played it for the first time last year and didn't finish (got up to episode 3 or 4) because I got busy and I was playing with borrowed time so I'll probably never finish it unless I buy it. But I also didn't like Chloe. I found her annoying and wish the game had ended where you save her dad and she ends up paralyzed. Otherwise, I really liked Kate and Nathan Prescott and remember wishing they had more scenes. I also remember looking into the tumblr community for life is strange and found out that there was apparently supposed to be more than 5 episodes and I really hope that those episodes were meant to flesh out other characters that weren't just Chloe.

Agreed, I think the game had some heart put into it but I would hardly call it the pinnacle of writing (even outside of Chloe) because the game has some massive plotholes/things that don't make sense in general. And like you said, the awful dialogue writing.
I have bad news for you, the entire game builds up to you having to decide between saving the town or letting Chloe live. Never made an easier choice in my life. I forgot her name but the evil short haired bully girl does get a little bit of grace in the last or second to last episode. The rest is just working towards the ending at that point really.

Here are some of my faves:
Danger on Deception Island: A conspiracy involving an orca and a small town on an island with a dark history. Includes one of the best crazy lady characters, good puzzles that aren't too hard, and a really fantastically woven mystery that weaves a few storylines together that you don't know how it all fits until the very end. I come back to it a lot because I love the story so much. A really good flow to solving it too, not much back and forth.
Treasure in a Royal Tower: The best crazy lady Hotchkis is here who also comes back in later games as a phone character occasionally, Marie Antoinette related mystery in a cool castle. An early game but still holds up imo. Like a lot of games, where it ends isn't where it starts so honestly don't remember the premise but it's a story set on humanizing Marie Antoinette on top of the mystery. A few of the games have done this where they take a controversial woman from history and add depth to her. Picrel is based on a grump in the game and the hilariousness of the goodbye lines after pissing people off.
Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon: You're invited on a train by Paris Hilton to try and solve the mystery of it. The owner had a secret mine and one day the train was found abandoned without him and only a dead conductor on board. Your mission is to figure out the location of the mine and what happened before the others who were invited solve it do (including the first instance of the Hardy Boys as characters beyond just guys you can call on the phone). Between deception island for my favourite. The puzzles are quite unique and while the location is interesting (mostly taking place on a train), it's more about the characters and the puzzle chains that are all well done. The plot is more straight forwards but it's cute and wholesome, it's also got a hilarious Paris Hilton stand-in whom I adore. Cause it's a parody written by women it doesn't feel hateful and if anything, she's actually quite smart.
The Final Scene: your friend is kidnapped and being held in an old theatre that's set to get demolished in 3 days, on the last day after a certain point there is actually a demolishion countdown and if you don't complete the game within the time period you and her are in the building when it demolishes (they made a game over sequence where you see the ball flying into the building in front of you before cutting to black supposedly, people claim it only happens if the timer goes off if you're in a particular room). I don't remember the puzzles too much, I think it's less about the puzzles and more finding clues but it's a game that sticks with me for the characters and the cool end sequence. Plus it keeps you on your toes the whole game and teaches you about Houdini cause the theatre is supposed to have been one of his favourites with lots of hidden passages. I might play it again soon I think.
Honourary mentions: Shadow at Water's Edge (set in a Ryokan outside of Tokyo, spooky), Warnings at Waverly Academy (set in an all-girls' school), Alibi in Ashes (play after a few games, set in River Heights and Nancy is the suspect), Danger by Design (France + catacomb exploring), Ghost of Thorton Hall (really great dark mystery imo, kinda spooky too with cool effects).
Honestly if you pick any of the games you're in for a fun time, there are maybe 1-2 duds across the whole series and there's still something to like about them. Ransom of the 7 Ships and Creature on Kapu cave are the ones I'm thinking of but are worth trying after you've done some others. They just don't have a great mystery cause I think both got rushed for some reason. Ransom literally only has one suspect and Kapu Cave has to explain the ending in the end sequence kek.

As for solving them, UHS (Universal Hint Sytem) is your friend. https://www.uhs-hints.com/ It gives you progressively detailed hints for solving the puzzles but also the answer if you're stuck so much better following a walkthrough imo, especially since you might do things in a different order from the walkthrough you are following. You feel more satisfaction at least trying the puzzles using help. The later games sort of integrated this into the checklist, for jr detective difficulty you can click a "hint" button under your objectives. But all games let you call Bess and George and/or Ned and/or the Hardy Boys for hints too so if you're stumped try them. If you have any questions or anything let me know! I've played these games so much cause I found the series back in 06 and been a massive fan ever since

NTA but this is a very solid list. Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon was always my favorite, both because of the setting and having the Hardy Boys show up as actual characters. The shopkeeper in the prospector suit terrified me as a kid, though.
I second everything the other anon wrote, and I think Message in a Haunted Mansion is another must-play. It has a sort of classic haunted house vibe with some mildly spooky stuff that is probably not nearly as terrifying as I found it at the age of 6. The Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake is also a good one, if only because of the 'isolated in the woods' setting. The NPCs are weaker in this one, but it has probably my 2nd favorite setting and atmosphere of the whole series. The Secret of Shadow Ranch is also fun, and I really liked finding the petroglyphs and getting to ride horses.

It really got the atmosphere down for sure. And Shadow Ranch really is top tier for the horses yeah. I can't believe I forgot about it, especially the love story that gets revealed which was beyond adorable.
Message in a Haunted Mansion might be actually one of the most subtly scary ones cause it pulled a lots of little tricks to make you think you're seeing things if you pay attention, every few locations you go the game will run an animation somewhere on the screen to move something. I think it's mostly moving things at the corner of the screen so it's less obvious. Once I saw a pillow move slightly to the left and I thought I was going insane until later noticed a mirror also move and realized the game had been doing this the whole time

I was SUCH a scaredy-cat as a kid, so the subtle animations in Message in a Haunted Mansion messed me up. I used to play the Nancy Drew games with an older family member, and this family member was used to me getting freaked out by the smallest stuff. During that game, I kept INSISTING there were crazy things going on in the background, like the engraving of a swan on a table leg moving for a split second, and my family member wouldn't believe me kek. I remember very distinctly someone whispering 'I see you' in the big entry hall, but the person I was playing with had poor hearing, and thought I was being paranoid because only I could hear it! I felt like I was going insane the entire time, which made me even more scared.
That's another good one! I still get that "Brigitte with her eyes so bright" song stuck in my head. Blackmoor Manor had some legitimate jumpscares, especially with that Ethel lady.

I do understand your thinking it was strange, but most of the weirdness was well-executed.

Internet Overdose, Rainbow Girl, and the religion ending were easily my favorites, but they apparently added more endings since I finished it, so maybe I should download it again to check them out.
