Anyone else playing Prey? It reminds me a bit of Half Life and I want to like it, but I find it boring! I'm not quite sure why but I've just finished going to my office and I'm still not hooked yet.

I recently bought a PS4 just to play RPGs. That's all I play, I kinda like losing myself in fantasy stories and handhelds just weren't doing it
I'll take recommendations too (pic half related)

I bouggt Witcher 3 without any idea what it's about needless to say that I'm in love now. Bought all the books as well as the old games and I'm so mad that I only got to know it in 2015. I'm a fucker for these kinds of games and Witcher is srsly as good as everyone says. And now that I read the books it's so cool to see the little details they but in every games.
I saw that today after my favourite Geralt Cosplayer mentioned it and I'm soo hyped about it.
I feel like Netflix is trying their best most of the times and since they will ask the author about stuff too I'm even more excited.
But idk how they are with CGI and stuff regarding the monsters I hope they won't look too fake.

Well they did a pretty good job in Stranger Things imo, what I'm curious about is what are they gonna adapt. Books or the video game?
Anyways anyone play Overwatch here, trying to play it on my shitty computer but I think I'm underperforming because of it and got stuck in bronze, feels bad man.
I started playing this recently too anon, the circlejerk over it is hilarious but it really is a fun game. I just wish the female characters weren't so vapid/half naked.
I thought Triss was bland as fuck and it was a weird choice that she could be paired with Geralt considering she says "Ciri is like a sister to me." They are completely different from one another.
The bloody baron questline was my fav.
Nah it does make sense if you read the books Triss always had a crush on Geralt which is kinda weird tho since Yennefer and her are like best friends so >>191016
You're right totally forgot about Stranger Things
And I think they'll go by the books since the authors is involved
Also always wanted to play Overwatch but shooters where never really my thing since they normally don't have any story to offer (also I suck lol)
How is Overwatch different from.all these other shooter games ?

Anyone here play FF14? I'm pretty excited for the new expansion, and I'm trying to finish my Astro relic right now.
I love the fact that Geralt isn't some poor young man that happens to save the world and all that, instead he's a trained professional and is doing his job. The choices are also what made me love the books and games - they aren't just black and white, all of them have more or less bad consequences.>>191011>>191014
Same. I also hope they stay true to the books and that there won't be (too much) fan service. I also hope they won't try to milk the franchise to death :/
The only game that I'm actually playing right now is Guild Wars 2 (would recommend) and I adore the game so much. I bought it two years ago, worried what it will be like since it had no trial period, but now it's basically my new "home". What I love the most is that you can't really "fall behind" others, even if you don't play for months. So I don't feel stressed out if I miss a day or two because of work.

>too depressed to focus enough to play anything
I just watch a lot of Let's Plays to get my fill of everything I'm missing. I watch a lot of Vinesauce stuff because I enjoy the nostalgic factor of revisiting older games and bootlegs.
I'm thinking of hooking up my old SNES and replaying all the games of my childhood. I'm also looking into buying a Dendy. Anyone else remember those?
Love that too about Geralt, also he is so awkward sometimes which brings a funny element into the whole thing. I think it can be really hard to do it without over doing it, thus ruining the whole thing.
The books and games captured this weird funny side of him quite well.
That's the main thing I'm worried about when it comes to the Netflix show. I feel like they can fuck Geralt (and with that the show) up if they can't capture this.
The Netflix produced shows I've seen so far are pretty good tho. But I think it would be their first show with a fantasy theme kinda ?
Anyways since there are soo many fans around I think (or hope lol) they will do their best because the pressure will be high

Yes, that too. I hope they don't make him "one -sided" so he ends up being just an ass through the series or just a badass etc.. There are quiet a few characters they can fuck up.
I also wonder how the public will handle it, since there is stuff like racism, sexism etc included. And the books and games aren't exactly popular with non-gamers, as far as I'm aware.
Oh, and apparently there's a movie in the making as well?

Currently playing Mass Effect 2 and this'll probably be an unpopular opinion, but I kinda like the first game better, gameplay-wise. Like, you had a map for pretty much everywhere, mods were a lot of fun to use and collect, the radar was permanently visible and there were a lot more talents/powers available. Not to mention the fact that you didn't need to conserve ammo lol. They also switched controls for the power wheels and aiming/fire which really confused me, but that will probably get better as I play.
Story telling, soundtrack/sound mixing, dialogue and graphics have definitely upgraded though and the SR2 is pretty neat…
I actually only discovered Mass Effect last year, so you can imagine all the stuff I was able to look up and spoil. I'm sad about that, but it's still been a really enjoyable experience so far. yes i vaguely know about the ending, but i honestly think that it isn't too bad. it feels realistic, as realistic as a video game can get lol, but i suppose people don't play games for realism
Even so, I guess I'll have to choose ME2 over ME1 simply because you can romance Garrus.
I've heard that Dragon Age is similar, so that series will be next, but there's so many games, I'm not sure where to start.
another unpopular opinion: MEA was actually playable and even enjoyable at times

I started playing OldSchool RuneScape a few months ago.
I'm an oldfag that's been around since the phat days so I'm no stranger to changes in game mechanics and graphics but holy fuck RS3 is literally unplayable for me. It's trying too hard to be some unholy matrimony of WoW and an uguu Korean MMO. I couldn't even get through the tutorial. Even the founders just up and left the company because it isn't the same anymore.
I like OSRS, it's a lot of fun to do all the old quests, and if you compare some really old ones (Hazeel Cult, Clock Tower, Temple of Ikov, usually around the Ardougne area) to the newer ones with updated game mechanics and graphics it's really nice to see how the game's been progressing over the years, back when quests weren't written by idiots and new content wasn't just endless QoL updates. I'm kind of warming up to Zeah now but it feels so lazy, very little content stretched as far apart as possible to make the area look bigger.
I just wish they had more quests and lore, and that the place wasn't overrun with retarded little kiddies. I also miss the days before the GE, though I understand the need for it.
Do you want 8 mill in osrs? I've been trying to get rid of it for a few years now and no one will take it off my hands for some reason.
I bought membership, farmed willow trees for 2 weeks straight, then decided I didn't want to play anymore. I am smrt
File: 1495186665012.jpg (55.64 KB, 288x344, DAI.jpg)
Anyone else play this masterpiece?
I read a bunch of people online complaining about it because the quests are a little repetitive and while they're really not as good as origins, they're still fun.
It's a good game, I enjoyed it a lot and spent over 300 hours on it (and still didn't fully explore the desert areas because FUCK they're like a fucking maze)>>191070
Just play Dragon Age Origins. If you like it, play DA II (I didn't because the gameplay was too action-focused) then Inquisition.
I'm jealous that you can play ME, I used to watch my boyfriend play it because I can't into FPS for shit (was the same with half life) but we broke up before he could play ME3. Do you think you could stream it when you play? I'd like to watch a fellow farmer playing it. Better than some rando youtuber.
>CTRL+F harvest moon>no results>stardew valley>no results either>rune factory>nothing
What the fuck? Step up your game, anons.>>191056
Play farming simulators. They'll suck you in and you'll forget all about your sad life.
I heard a lot of good things about DAI and actually have the original game on Origin, I just have to download and install.
I actually haven't heard anything else about the story/gameplay/fights/quests etc., only about romancing…is the game really a "dating simulator" sort of or can you skip that part completely?
I should give it a try
You can skip it completely. Inquisition isn't even like origins, you can only romance one person. (On origins you could literally date everyone and there was even a bisexual elf who fucked you the mine you said "hello")
The gameplay is like an RPG, but you can choose between action and tactical modes, except for DA2 that afaik doesn't have a tactical mode.
The different races and classes are a lot of fun, pick a mage on DAO and get ready for a wild ride
Adding to this - On origins and inquisition, you can befriend people (though inquisition got rid of the gifting system, that was a lot of fun) but to romance them you need to choose romancey dialog options, which you can just not do.
The fights are fun, on tactical mode the game is paused and you choose actions for your party that they'll perform once you unpause it. You can select actions for them to perform automatically as well (such as "drink healing potion when health under 25%") and play it action mode.
The lore is pretty nice, as are the million side quests (that often add to the lore)
ya girl right here anon. i got stardew valley in a humble bundle but i've only played like two game days of it lol. just haven't had time because of college. favorite harvest moon/rune factory? mine's tree of tranquility even tho it's kinda trash and rune factory frontier.
i'm really upset i'm not very good at certain reactionary games :( my bf got further in bloodborne in one hour than i did in 10. i get scared/surprised easily and tend to spazz out. i'd like to join my friends in FPS like overwatch but i just can't control the gun and camera at the same time. i can hold my own in smash at least.
anyone been playing the new persona? i've been hearing good things about it but haven't gotten further than the first dungeon because again time

I'm only playing Japanese video games because it seems Western games are only on consoles I don't own and I can't play anything with my laptop. Right now I'm playing Fire Emblem Fates, I'm almost done with the Revelation DLC but I really don't like it as much as the Birthright and Conquest routes because of the maps. I have a bunch of games I never finished or never even played, it'll keep me busy during the summer holidays. I'll focus on Pokémon Sun next. Not directly related but goddamn, the FE fanbase is absolute shit. I never got to play the games before Awakening because I was young and couldn't buy the games I wanted and I didn't have a GBA at the time, not because I want to fuck Tharja or something.>>190978
Etrian Odyssey seems interesting, especially because it's cheap on the nintendo eshop, but at the same time I'm not sure I'll like it because I've had issues with Persona Q and I've been told it's basically Etrian Odyssay with Persona 3 and 4 characters.>>191015
I likes DR1 a lot even though I've seen a bunch of spoilers before playing it, but I'm halfway through the second game and I really don't like it as much, I'm not attached to the characters as much and the humor is a bit to over the top for me this time. I'm hesitating getting V3 later, for once I've never seen spoilers on this game.
Also:>I got p3p and I'm really enjoying it, but I hate all the level grinding it's so tedious.
You shouldn't need to level grind in this game, unless you're playing on hard or higher difficulty. You're probably doing something wrong.>>191030
Me too! Although I haven't played any of the older games, P2 Innocent Sin aside. I wish they announced a SMT1&2 remake for the 3DS instead of Deep Strange Journey, especially because I have Strange Journey but haven't played it yet.

Apparently DONTNOD is planning o making a LiS 2 soon, i am seriously excited to see where they'll go with it, it'd be interesting to change the time mechanics for another power and change the characters up a little.
The ending to the first, i think, really closed the story off Max rather well (eventhough it was a shit ending), so i'd hope to see new characters.>>191050
Oh man, same about Guild Wars 2. Started a week ago and i'm hooked. If you'd told me i'd be considering buying an expansion for a mmo i'd never had believed you, but it is seriously such an enjoyable online game. I am currently trying to find a guild because i am a ranger (not bearbow tho kek) and i read in the subreddit that i am doomed if i try to do anything with PUGs so r.i.p.
The community seems pretty great and the game system is very fair for all players with level scalling and not overly P2W. >>191095
P5 is absoultely amazing, but it really requieres a lot of time, i'm still in the futaba dungeon because i've not been able to play much recently.
It controls very smoothly, the music is absolutely fantastic and the characters are trope-y but loveable. The only thing that bothers me is morgana constant whining about going to sleep for the most trivial things i swear to god that fucking cat.>>191083
I liked it, mostly for the characters, didn't really like the gameplay too much tbh.
Can't wait to play the new one, if it's set in tevinter i hope it returns to a more darker style. Inquisition felt too "goody two shoes" for my taste. I just wanted to be a dictator blood mage that led the inquistion to be an evil force god damn it.
I also hope they make the worlds smaller, but more important to the story and learn from the many mistakes of MEA. also that they bring Zevran, Sten and Fenris back in actual cameos. Especially Zevran, waht they did to him on inquistion is inexcusable.
For Mass Effect, you could try setting it on narrative mode, it's very easy as a shooter in that difficulty (especially 2 and 3, 1 is just a little clunky). ME3 has a mode where the enemies are basically paper so you can get right through the story, but most of that story is told on never on sale DLCs which sucks ass.
I've heard people say that the first, maybe quarter or so of Andromeda were its rockiest parts, but that it gets a bit better afterwards? I'm still wondering if I should just bite the bullet and get it.
So, I've finally decided to sit down and play Fallout 3 after quite some time…and oof…don't hate me, but this shits kinda rough. The main quests aren't all that fun…like at all (except for maybe Tranquility Lane). Breaks my heart a bit, too since I remember FO3 being one of my favourite games at one point. It just feels like a whole lot of nothing. Big, expansive open area with piss all to do.
I got to play Harvest Moon MfoM on a friend's GBA when I was younger and that was what made me get a DS. I would say that Mineral Town is still my all-time favorite but then again I've only played DS Cute and SoS.
Should I get Stardew Valley? I don't really like the artwork so I would mod it but while I love farming sims I'll play for hours on end but when I take a break I avoid picking it back up because I've forgotten what I was doing.
would you recommend the older SMT games to someone who's more into the newer ones? i find the old-school rpg graphics really off-putting, but if the plot is decent then maybe i'll give it a go. is there anything in particular you like about the earlier smt titles compared to the newer ones, or is it just the general old rpg vibe that you prefer?>>191112
same on not having played strange journey and wanting SMT1/2 remakes. i've heard SJ isn't the greatest game, and i've been putting off playing it for years, but maybe the remake will make it a little bit better?
also, i'd recommend P2 Eternal Punishment if you've already played Innocent Sin. it's p good and i like most o the main characters in EP a lot more than the ones in IS and the storyline is slightly better imo>>191132
i'm so excited for LiS 2!!! agreed on the ending being shitty (although i liked that Chloe and Max got to have a proper kiss
and Nathan got a minor redemption arc, even if he was dead by the time it happened
lmao). definitely curious about how they'll change the mechanics up to keep the game exciting, but i'm more intrigued by them having an entirely new set of characters. obviously it makes sense, but i'm gonna really miss some of the old characters; I just hope they newer ones aren't as meme-y and cliche as some of the minor characters in the last game.
File: 1495210087344.gif (2.6 MB, 540x304, tumblr_optwiqunrP1ub7k6lo1_540…)
On my second playthrough but on hard this time, played in safe mode strictly for the story to get the true ending.
Makoto is best girl~
Heh, i was one of the few who prefred Max + Warren so i was more excited for theirs more than the chloe one, (i didn't particularly like chloe and max, felt like ever since chloe came back into max's life she fucked it up because of being overly selfish and childish, kinda felt the relationship would be a bad step for Max if chloe didn't learn how to deal with herself.)
Out of all of them Nathan was my favourite character and i would have loved a bigger expansion of his personality and backstory. It was very tragic how everyone around him used him and it absolutely destroyed him. I felt pity for him as soon as everything was unraveled. Finding out what his dad did or what a certain professor used him for, all the while he did it because he had no direction in life, just crushed me. I really would have hoped that maybe Max could've become closer to him, so he could have a friend who was not looking for anything other more than friendship with him, someone who he could rely on.
He is really a great character, not bad, not great, just fucked up because of his enviorment.
Would love to play a character like Nathan on the sequel.
Also the memes were a little on the face, the fat spanish "loser" dude with the outdated ragecomic t-shirt was a tad bit too much lol
I really want to play P2 Eternal Punishment because I liked how the main characters where introduced in Innocent Sin and I love Maya, but it's not available on the European PSN and I can't emulate anything on my laptop because it's a piece of junk that can barely make microsoft office work. I'll definitely try it one day though, I just don't know when.
As for Strange Journey, I think what some people found off-putting was that the press turn mechanism was replaced by something else that has to do with your party members' alignments to deal extra damage to your enemy, but I'm not sure anymore. I only played it for 2min to see if my cartridge worked so I can't say for sure if that's the case. I heard some of the final bosses are really tedious too but that might be people exaggerating how megaten is difficult in general, idk.
File: 1495214721595.png (1.11 MB, 1067x600, nioh-listing-thumb-01-ps4-us-0…)
Same here. First I didn't care for Chloe but in the end i hated her. How can one be so fucking annoying all the time thinking that everthing is about her.
To this day I don't understand why so many people ship them for the sake of having a lesbian couple, when Chloe is clearly fucking up everything>>191142
I loove Persona 5. I'm doing the same thing right now btw.
Also on my second play in hard. Excited to max out all confidants.
Chose Makoto in the first play but too be honest when Haru came I lost it. I love her English voice so much and all in all she is a cutie.
In general the English voice cast did an amazing job (except for pronouncing names but whatever)
Right now I'm turned the japanese voices on to compare it.
On another note;
Did anyone here play Nioh ? It reminds me a little bit of Witcher just from seeing pictures but I haven't actually played it. I don't want to bring my hopes up and pay for it when it actually sucks
Strange Journey is difficult for a JRPG but it's a lot like the old-school SMT games with upgrades that make it less frustrating, like having a base and dungeon maps. Some people were really put off by the first-person layout but every other game pre-IV is like that too (including Nocturne, it's available as a bonus when you beat the game).>>191140
I think you should try SJ or Nocturne, the stories aren't linear but I like how different their atmospheres are compared to other JRPGs. Instead of it being about camaraderie and adventure there's a feeling of the protaganist being trapped alone in these bizarre worlds where everyone has a hidden agenda. If you haven't played it yet Digital Devil Saga is also a good not really SMT but fairly similar game.
I haven't tried Soul Hackers yet but it doesn't seem like there's much talk about that one. Did anyone here play it?
File: 1495221280433.png (251.51 KB, 800x546, 54978225_p6.png)
I was playing Soul Hackers some months ago and while it's pretty fun overall, I haven't finished it yet because I got sick of enemies spamming mudola on the MC, I got busy with college and just bought FE Fates at the time too. I'll beat it soon I think, once I beat FE Fates Revelation.
The gameplay is fairly simple because there's no press turn but you have to be careful with your demons, they do what they want sometimes depending on their personalities so you either let them do what they want, give them instructions during battles and hope for the best, or you use items on them to change their personalities. The story is a bit over the top but that's part of the fun, I like it a lot. I'm expected Hitomi to be the boring female sidekick but I love her as much as I like Nemissa. You explore the dungeons in 1st person view and everything is pretty fast-paced, exploring dungeons legit made me dizzy sometimes. By the way, I've bee told that playing at the casino grants you a bunch of OP weapons but I'm so shit at the mini games that I never got any of these weapons. But maybe these advice could be useful to you if you decide to play it.
File: 1495232645125.jpg (83.27 KB, 640x641, Suikoden II cover (US).jpg)
Suikoden 1 & 2 are my favorite games of all time. If you like classic JRPGs play this series (you can stop at Suiko 3).
Anyone else enjoying Zelda BOTW? It's so huge. I'm 130 hours into it and I'm still discovering new areas. My only complaint is a lack of a real temple. The Shrines and the Divine Beasts are neat but a classic temple would have made this game perfect. Maybe with DLC.
File: 1495234532303.jpg (281.28 KB, 600x500, SMT-Strange-Journey-shin-megam…)
Seconding Nocturne. Once you get addicted to the gameplay, you'll want to come back and play it again or actually finish Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2.>>191142
I really need to pick this up again. I love Makoto so much. I made Ann my waifu, though… I haven't had time to properly finish the damn game unfortunately. >>191157
it's funny that you say this about the English voices because my friend loathes it. I think she may just be a huge fucking weeaboo tho lmao
Man I love the suggestions in this thread too. A Strange Journey remake would be amazing.
Random question… Does anyone here play fighting games?
I bought Andromeda. Beat it a few weeks ago. I don't plan on replaying it until DLCs and more patches come out though. It doesn't feel as replay-able to me as Dragon Age Inquisition.
Mass Effect is my absolute favorite series. I love Andromeda, but it needs some TLC before it can feel like a "complete" game.
I'm currently on my 3rd Dragon Age Inquisition playthrough and I love it just as much as the first two times. I'm skipping most of the fetch quests which makes the pacing better. I bought all the DLC as well so I'm excited to play those for the first time.

i like to call strange journey 'suicide journey' but if you want an intensely brutal and depressing game, it's wonderful. nocturne is HANDS DOWN my favorite though, but IV and apocalypse are both excellent. devil survivor is wonderful too, but i think 1 is better than 2.>>191229
THERE IS A STRANGE JOURNEY REMAKE COMING OUT! it's called deep strange journey. actual play isn't getting changed much, but upgraded cutscenes, a shitton of new demons, and some new storylines.
tl;dr nocturne is still my favorite overall tho and if you want to get into mainline SMT, it's the best place to start imo. it only gets harder from there.
sorry for sperg i just /really love SMT okay/
Thanks for the rec! And I wish I could stream, sadly I lack all the proper equipment.>>191133
It's okay to play, but for a Bioware game the writing is really unimpressive. It might be because it's only the first game, but Ryder and the squad are nowhere near as memorable as Shepard and co. Just wait until sales.>>191158
Y-yes! I miss the old Normandy music. The SR2 is too quiet. The old themes pop up here and there though, so that's nice.>>191157
Nioh reminds me a lot of Dark Souls, so if you like that franchise I'm guessing you'll enjoy Nioh.
I think Andromeda got way too much hate for its poor characterization but like I just played ME1 for the first time in ages and it feels so much like Andromeda story wise, clearly both the games were building up to bigger things and I think too many people compared MEA to the original trilogy as a whole and that's not really fair.
Personally I love Andromeda, it was amazingly fun, I'm on my third play-through but I'm waiting for the update where you can customize your character more before I play for a 4th time.
I really don't have anything else to do beside working so all I do is either playing video games or watching shows sounds suoer lonely I know but I got no friends in this town.
So I can beat a medium lenght game in a few days.
Once I move back to my hometown I won't have that kind of time because I actually have a social life over there kek
So around two weeks or longer
But yeah there will weeks when I barelly use my PS4 in my hown town so it always depends on the game too
I tend to play really long games and i am a bit of a completionist, so depending on the game… maybe around 60+ hours for rpgs and around 80+ hours for JRPGs.
I tend to play around 2-6 hours a day, unless i have to study, so it takes me a while to beat any game. Especially now that i am supposed to be a "responsable adult".
I don't know if it's because i am getting old but games also don't hold my focus as much anymore, i tend to get bored if i play more than a few hours, or get overwhelmed and stop playing if they are too long.
(>started playing witcher 3, 120 hours and still not out of skellige because completionist shit, never touched it again because i was burned out. >Started yakuza 5, 80+ hours, still on haruka arch, stopped playing because overwhelmed. >Persona 5, futaba dungo, got burned out and never touched it again eventhough i want to play it, but just can't find any kind of motivation to do so.
It's depressing because i wanna finish them since i love the games but it just feels like a chore and like i am wasting my time to do +100 hour games now for some reason)
I enjoyed BOTW a lot the first ~50 hours. I kinda grew more and more disappointed after that, because the game feels so empty and way too easy (the divine beasts especially). There's not much besides puzzles and while they're fun, the story and quests are so lacking. There's only a handful of quests that were satisfying/memorable/hard, all stables and villages pretty much have the same NPCs/meaningless quests, you're alone most of the time (as opposed to having midna or navi), etc. I'm really sad about it.
I wish the quests were more like other open worlds' (Witcher, DA, Bethesda etc), where you're more invested because of the story and stakes. Or even just more like previous zelda's quests. Now it's almost only "go get this / do this because you have to". It desperately needs an after-game too. But still totally worth playing. Hopefully the next one will be a real 10.
>>191332> Nioh reminds me a lot of Dark Souls, so if you like that franchise I'm guessing you'll enjoy Nioh.
Pls tell me you play dark souls, or anyone else for that matter. I would seriously like to have someone to coop with.
Btw, is there a lolcow steam group? Should I create one?
Liam's romance was SO dry. He's a qt and It was sweet but like, a lot didn't really happen and I was rlly disappointed by the end. I'm gonna try Peebee or Vetra.
And I agree about Jaal, he honestly looks like some weird alien penis.
I've only played Bloodborne, though I did grab Dark Souls after I played it. It's sitting around somewhere…
Anyways, anon is right about BB's play style. You've got to be quick and aggressive. But once you get the timing down for parries and visceral attacks you'll have a much easier time going through.
For the first boss are you talking about Gascoigne or Cleric Beast? Both can be parried, you just have to shoot them before they attack. Watch closely a few times for their attack pattern and you'll get it. Cleric Beast is also weak against fire so if you have fire paper or some molotovs you can use them. As a bonus, you can even summon Gascoigne to help you in the fight against Cleric Beast with an Old Hunter's Bell.
For the most part you can get through with good timing, knowing weaknesses of the mobs, and wearing the right gear. But you will die, a lot and often. It's just part of FromSoftware's thing, all their games are fucking hard. I think the visuals alone are worth it though.
I love rune factory and prefer it over Harvest Moon cause you can do so many things. Cooking, harvesting, crafting, flirting … and the bachelors are so handsome. I prefered the 3 over the 4th one though. >>191095
I feel you, my bf says I'm a good player on Overwatch, that I just started playing, but I know I'll never ever be anything above average at best. There's just way too many good players out there and it's not like you can slowly grind skills or stuff.
I'm more of a casual player and love all kinds of games, but competitive FPS are not my forte. >>191352
Me too … getting a job really killed my gaming hobbies. I'm often too tired and the games don't make me relax. I need to force myself to finish some in my library before buying new ones, or waiting til they're on sale.

I'm only going for Jaal because Bioware once again denied me my krogan romance. I was overall pretty disappointed that the only male alien option was a new race and nothing else.

Yeah Mei is great too shame her gun doesn't shoot out honey tho :(, I want the Tracer and Lucio the most this event. I didn't get the Cadet skin for Tracer last event and I at least want to get this one.
>>191814>one male alien option
gdi bioware when will you let me have my salarian husbando
There is a vetra romance, which is a female turian, but it's very short and with barely any content, like most romances on this game except for PB, Cora and Jaal.
It really sucks, i just want a krogan romance or a male quarian roamance (still salty me2 didn't give us the possibility).
Hopefully the DLC is still in motion and we get the so deserved Quarian romance from it or at least some meat (kek) from the rest of the romances.
File: 1495625350216.gif (1.34 MB, 800x533, i just really wanted to post t…)
Jaal's romance is like… the opposite of what I'd expect from a krogan romance. And damn, I didn't even realise that there was only one male alien option. At least ME2 had Garrus and Thane.

>>191052>Has anyone here played Nier? People keep telling me the games are good but the stories are a bit muddled.
I haven't played the original Nier, but Nier: Automata is one of the best games I've ever played. The story was the best part, though I admit it's very complex and if you aren't paying attention you might miss really important parts. I had to play through twice because I missed stuff.
File: 1496281103727.jpg (184.63 KB, 848x1200, 1490446107699.jpg)
Was considering buying a PS3 to play it, but I can't really justify it for one game. I'm hoping against hope that Square recognizes the success of Automata and ports it to PC.
I definitely get this, I really think for me its an attention span issue. The same reason I often have trouble sitting through an episode of anime even if I really love the show.
I feel especially guilty about FE:Fates because I bought all 3 paths (2 being DLC) and haven't beaten the Nohr route yet, or touched the 3rd one (forgot what it's even called…)
File: 1496970496316.png (45.29 KB, 174x256, NewHusbando.png)
I think it's depression for me, I haven't even played the game yet today, just slept on and off while Parks and Rec plays in the background.
I'll force myself to play tonight, if only to hear my new husbando's sweet voice encourage me to fight on.
Fire Emblem Awakening
Fire Emblem Fates
Kirby (any of them you can download)
The remakes of ocarina of time and majoras mask are pretty cool. If you have a new3ds definitely check out xenoblade chronicles, it is so damn good.
I would also recommend the entire ace attorney series, and the professor layton series as well.
The original ds had a ton of hidden gems you could also look into, as the 3ds can play ds games too. If you like visual novels Id recommend 999 and hotel dusk.
Haven't finished the third route either even though I love it.
For me it's being a perfectionist and trying to get everyone on A/S.
Kinda stopped having fun doing this bullshit. Should have played the story first and then trying to get everyone on A/S.
I wasn't that excited for the game because honestly, I didn't expect much. But I've played it and… it surprised me, it's really good I liked the similar, but slightly different vibe. Chloe's vibe. The William scenes were a punch right into the kokoro. Yes, >>204126
I kinda agree, at least about ChloexRachel. Their friendship was a bit rushed, they hung out two times and suddenly "there's something special" and shit. But it's only 3 eps, so I understand it.
I really love No below by Speedy Ortiz.
And the rpg game part rule

>>204087>blue hair says men shouldn't own guns, only women>waves a gun around like a retard, shoots herself>shoots dog when arguing with a guy over a B&E
I'm morbidly curious to see what they did this time.
I disliked Chloe too in the first game, but still played BtS because i love the franchise.
She is still very annoying in general and very similar to the first game in scripted sequences, but at least it's more manageable since you control her and can make her more "your style".
Honestly, i liked the first episode regardless of my opinion of Chloe, my only gripe with it is that everything felt very rushed, including the development with Rachel.My favorite part of the whole episode was playing DnD with the nerds, tbh.
I mean…she's still herself in the game but you can make her "nicer" since you control what she says.>>204151
Loved that part too, and the train scene, but still…
Can't really recommend anything but if you got the time look for indie games on Steam and Gog>>204242
So far it's only about them. Guess you could wait for all 3 episodes to be released or just torrent it and see how you like it

What are your favorite comfy games? I've been in a depressed mood lately so I've been playing the shit out of cute games like Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon.
oh man, I used to play so many of those
but I can barely recall some.
I remember The Crooked Man and Ib were good.

It's got wonderful music and story and lots of things to do and I used to play it as a wind down during final year of uni and it was so good for that

Anyone else excited that they're releasing Okami for the PS4, PC and XBox?
god I am. I loved that game so damn much, I played it enough to finish it within 10 hours.
Everyday during the holidays I'll do a full run of it… I can't wait to relive my Okami days. I even went to the Capcom collab with Okami for the pins ha!!

Anyone playing Divinity Original Sin 2?
I've been seeing a lot of positive reviews on it but i'm not sure if i'll bite the bullet on buying it since I've never played any games of the franchise and i don't know what to expect.
Is it any fun playing it alone?
Is it more like Skyrim (open world, story all over the place, you do you) or like Dragon Age: Origins (semi open world, kinda-linear good story, side quests that do not detract from main story)?
File: 1506020562721.jpg (4.64 MB, 2300x1534, Okami.full.1148276.jpg)
I am SO excited for it. I never owned the game (a friend did and she gave it to me for a few weeks) I played it so manye times and I'm still shocked that it was never that popular.
I hope it will get more fans through the remake honestly it's one of the best games that I have ever played. The Art is so gorgeous and story wise it's really good too.
My father plays it, so I know some bits:
The maps are mostly like in DAO, but a bit big (from what I've seen) and the quest often tie into each other (like skyrim, I guess, eg. help person a in town a, later go to town b and person b happens to know a and offers you a quest/dialog etc). I guess it could be compared to DAO but it looks way more story and lore heavy, with a shit ton of details.
It's one of those "heavy" rpgs tbh, but I'd really recommend it if your into exploring and reading.>>205187
I think I actually read something about some company making a second game?
I actually played it on the dolphin simulator a few years ago, 100% worth the lag and struggle to make circles with a keyboard lol
D:OS is nothing like dragon age or skyrim. Combat is strategic and turn based and the enemies don't respawn. The game is split between acts and each act has a large map that you can explore however you want, unless higher lvl enemies kill you, although most times you can get around them if you're smart enough.
You can solve every quest in different ways and there are no quests like "help x npc" or "gather x ingredients". Some side quests are connected to the main quests and some aren't. So i guess depth-wise you could compare it more to the witcher 3. (but it's still much more complex because you have multiple, potentially custom characters and the witcher only has one)
Also, everything happens in text. There are no cinematics. Don't play it if you don't like reading.
Sorry if you already know all that, but since you only mentioned skyrim and dragon age instead of other rpgs with many more similarities i feel like you don't have a lot of experience in the genre.
Thank you guys!
Story heavy, lore heavy and very text heavy RPGs are some of my favorites so i think i will pick it up. Kinda assumed it would have MMO-ish quests thrown around a big empty map since it has the ability to play with people(afaik) and that's what scared me from picking it up.
>since you only mentioned skyrim and dragon age instead of other rpgs with many more similarities i feel like you don't have a lot of experience in the genre.
I do actually! it's my favorite genre. I just compared it to those because the screenshots i saw reminded me a lot of DA:O, and used Skyrim as an example because it has that kind of MMOish very detached quest feel to it which i don't particularly enjoy, so i knew if to stay clear of it kek.
oh, then the game is perfect for you! it has multiplayer but it doesn't make it MMO-like. the quests are very complex and the maps are full of details. this game is the furthest from MMO you can get, tbh. >>205274
i know that feel! i currently play as lohse and the red prince, together with two customs. my next run will be a full undead party with fane and two customs. after that i'll make a lone wolf run with sebille and ifan. don't really care about beast tho tbh. maybe i'll squeeze him in somewhere…
(i use the multiplayer trick to have more than 1 main character)

I bought Transistor two days ago as an app (bc it's cheaper and i have a shit-tier pc) and I didn't expect it to be so good.
Art, soundtrack, gameplay, plot; I really can't find anything bad about it. Okay well, it crashes all the time during saves, probably because it's a mobile port, but it still saves so I can go right back without losing much progress.
I went back and bought Bastion and even though it's quite charming, I still enjoy Transistor more. I'll probably pick up both soundtracks as well.
transistor's ending fucks me up so badly though, but that might be because i'm depressed
There are some amazing mobile games out there, even if some are just ports. They tend to be hard to find unless they get featured or if you're following the devs because they're pretty expensive as apps go. It's obviously better to buy the game on steam if it's available though, not just for performance reasons, but because devs are just more likely to update the 'main' version of the game than the mobile version.
Hello fellow oldfag!
Have you played the Trails in the Sky games? They remind me of nothing so much as the first two suikoden games.
Professor Layton series?
Ghost trick was fun too.
They both have puzzles to go through, Ghost tricks storyline is more mysterious than Professor Layton's though.
You might like Gabriel Knight:Sins of the Father for pc. It's a point and click mystery set in New Orleans.It was originally released in 1993, but there was a 3d remake made a couple years ago.
The 3d looks a little awkward at times, and some people say the voice acting was better in the original, but I didn't really notice. The puzzles are much more challenging than the ones in Life is Strange so you might need to use a walkthrough (or the in-game hint system if you play the remake).

Didn't know where else to post this:
Does anyone remember the very persistent rumour that Nintendogs could breed with each other?
There were tons of videos and posts out there with kids insisting their dogs could breed by following a list of random tips like only feeding them water and dry food. Some videos even showed very small puppies, supporting this rumor, but that was just Action Replay at work that enabled shrinking a dog's original size.
To this day, I wonder why so many 8 to 10-year-old kids all over the internet stubbornly upheld this rumor, hid the fact they used Action Replay to get abnormally small-sized puppies and pretended that breeding was a part of the game while telling everybody that Nintendo is lying to their players about it.
Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon the ds version (by nostalgia), and the other one (Rune Factory) also on DS.>>204251
Duuude IB was my jam back then. Mad Father was neat too but IB is my all time fave.
I played Pocket Mirror lately and loved it a lot too. The art,the aesthetic,…was super neat! They even have animated cutscenes!

Does anyone know any good mmorpg's I can play? Maybe something similar to old school Maplestory. I need something chill/comfy with a friendly community so I can get away from these lonely feels.
Agreed. I tried rerolling a monk since they have a reduced GCD with 3 stacks of their buff but I got burnt out before I hit a level where it began to matter. >>209861
Have you played another tab target MMO, like WoW or Aion? If so, it's not going to be a huge difference.
I wish there was a new MMO a la Mabinogi. Cute, comfy and sandbox-y.
Nexon has been developing Peria Chronicles for ages now and it's still not out.

It's my first and probably the only shooter I'll ever want to play.

uh just play mabi?
If you're a Nintendo slut like me I'd say yes, I love this thing.
I've got all the big names so I'll give a small review.
Zelda is super amazing and fun, however after about a week or two it starts to feel repetitive, but we'll see what the next few DLCs offer.
Splatoon 2 is fun as well, I'm not super big on team fighters but it's proved more entertaining and cute than expected.
I just got Mario Odessey and I'm completely obsessed I adore this game and everything about it.
While the games all play great, the eshop and menu design leave a lot to be desired. It's so minimalist it's almost annoying. Also the joy con are super tiny.
So if you're a die hard Nintendo fan I'd get one, otherwise I'd wait till they come out with more games.
I was actually referring to splatoon 2, I guess I should've been more specific. From what I heard the two games are pretty similar aside from a few new features, though.
If you ever get a switch I highly recommend it regardless!
Not them but I enjoyed it. Much better than what I was expecting. The original trailers was making me expect something slow paced that shits on the original game, but instead they did a decent job at capturing its spirit.
> I'm also looking for games along the line of Doom, if you got any.
Off the top of my head I would suggest (the original) Duke Nukem, Quake, Blood, Blood, F.E.A.R., Painkiller, Serious Sam.
File: 1509877602123.jpg (982.53 KB, 1600x900, IMG_9094.JPG)
So I sat down and actually took a gander at Layers of Fear since it really seemed like a visually interesting 'scary game'
I especially was into it because instead of having an Amnesia / Dead space approach with possible enemies and the threat of death, its got a very theatrical gameplay to it where you pick up clues and get tossed through a maze.
It basically nailed what Uncharted lacked when it comes to a 'movie' gameplay.
It gets you from a to b without making it obvious or restricting gameplay too much.
Im a sucker for the whole 'victorian villa' aesthetic and making it super artsy didnt help my plight, I was super into the constantly shifting halls and rooms.
My graphics settings were all high, runing the game as optimal as it could be (if anyone wants my advance settings just ask) it was a smooth playthrough,
I was griping about the control for sure though, its a VR compatible game so opening/closing drawers or winding up objects would at times be really fucking annoying since on a controller there isnt as much motion available than when you're moving a vr gamepad.
In the end i really enjoyed it and anyone who likes spooky games should deffo give it a look.
(Sorry for any misspelling I am alittle toked atm)

Unless you're set on a particular design of n3DS XL, you should probably get a regular n3DS or a 2DS XL instead. The n3DS XL is reaallllly big, it's kinda awkward. The size of the reg. n3DS is perfect imo. A lot bigger than the o3ds, but not too big.
The design is gorgeous too, and the plates are fucking beautiful. I have the plates in pic related, the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu ones, some boo ones that glow in the dark, the acnl ones, and a few others. I love them all so much, even if they are a bit expensive…
The 2DS XL is also really nice, I highly reccomend it if you don't really use the 3D and you're okay with the size (it's huge just like the 3DS XL)
I also reccomend that you homebrew your 3DS and dl usum for free when it comes out unless you just really want a physical copy (or you feel bad about not paying for it).
It did on my regular 3ds xl too, but it didn't on my n3ds unless I was on the 2v2 doubles.
Speaking of, I wish Guzma didn't constantly fuck me over in that. I still love him though, he's the best partner <3
Yeah I have an older 3DS xl and the battle scenes always lagged, I also experience lagging in other games like story of seasons.>>210930
I was planning on getting the n3DS xl because I always assumed the XL was better than the regular size in terms of graphics and processing. I really wish they had cute colors in the XL though, that's part of the reason I haven't gotten one yet.
the bigger screen really does make the pixelation worse, the image is simply stretched instead of more pixels being generated to make things more smooth looking
sorta wish i had bought a regular n3ds but i'm also a very visually picky person so
that being said, SuMo didn't lag for me at all on the n3ds xl
yea its pretty dark. but i enjoyed it. i went into it knowing that it was a bit twisted but was still surprised.
but for being a free game, kudos. ive played plenty of free vns and went away regretting the hour spent reading garbage.>>211063
i still do. it gets knocked because they arent 'real' games but sorry i dont feel the need to play with a bunch of salty bitches on pubg or csgo. i tend to play games because theyre fun.

MY GOD THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL!
I was told I was weird for playing "Old dad games", but it just feels so nice. Especially flight sims. I bought X-Plane 11 recently and it feels good but ATC is underwhelming. Talking with the tower is some of the best part.
I was thinking of posting a feel like this last night anon.
Competitive online gaming stresses me the fuck out and I don't play games to be angry and pissed off. Sim and world-building games are my favorite.
Last night I played Cities Skylines well until 4am like a loser.
I can't see the worth in competitive games, really. Which is sad because more and more of them keep getting extremely popular. >>211070>Last night I played Cities Skylines well until 4am like a loser.
I used to do the same thing with Simcity 4 back when I still had to wake up for school every morning.
I'm personally waiting for the official release but I'm excited!
It seems very watered down but hopefully it'll keep me satisfied until we get a mainline game on the switch.

Sounds kind of silly even if you don't care for them. Its a team working towards a specific goal, one that is constantly shifting at that. Even with open ended games such as Factorio which I love, people generally have some goals and maybe handicaps in mind.
Related to those who enjoy sim games, I suggest maybe looking at Elite Dangerous and becoming a space trucker.
