ITT, what you're curently playing for the time being, or just finished, new or old games alike.

As is, I'm on assassin's creed brotherhood myself after having finally gotten around to playing killzone 2, which was a tad bit on the disappointing side, but works fine for a mindless shooter I guess.
AC:B on the other hand is pretty good so far I think.

It indeed says a lot when some side characters are more interesting and believable than the main characters. Best girl for you btw? Mabel for me, even though Nico is hella cute.
Couldn't agree more on that, wish Raz would have done some big fuck up at one point that runined something important and he would be neck deep in shit for it. Same for Claude, I am so tired of perfect, flawless overpowered characters. Just not convincing and boring too.
VC2 has also a very shitty MC, worst of the whole series IMHO.
Well I mostly play RPGs, occasionlly I read a VN, now and then I try out something that just looks interesting, then I don't care what genre it is. Most of the time my trying out ends bad though because I honestly dislike most genres and I am generally a picky cunt.
How about you? What do you enjoy?
>> No. 13933 [Edit]
The characters I use most are probably Vancey, Neige, Nico and Ferrier (in order). I ended up using Ferrier and Nico less towards the later part of the game to make way for the shitty MCs but in general all my active squads are females, I think the only decent male characters are the two old guys and maybe Curtis. Mabel is a good character too and I used her quite a bit as well but ultimately had to choose between her and Kai (for the extra turn), she also joined a little later than the others. I'm also biased towards Vancey and Ferrier because I think they have great (japanese) VAs. Speaking of which, I really enjoyed the extra stories chapter where you have to fight against the MCs although unfortunately you don't get to choose your squad. I agree with you about Raz, I despised what happened to him as it turned him into a "hero" instead. With regards to Claude, I'd also add that he isn't actually even that flawless as a character, it's just that all the characters in the game seems to put him on a pedestal and never fault him.

I grew up with the PS1 so JRPGs are my thing as well although I haven't been playing much of the newer ones. I haven't played VNs in a long time, my first VNs are from the pc-98 and I feel like the direction of the story and characters now are a little too different for my tastes. Other than that I suppose I also do enjoy some simulation games.

>> No. 13935 [Edit]
I didn't like it either, I could not even finish it. I was not fond of the Valkyria revolution either. The writing just is not good and nothing new has been added gameplay wise. The characters were not great and the subtitles were far too westernised as well, actually even the natural Japanese was a bit.

Keeping customers happy and maintaining a positive image (whether you care or not) Is generally good for any business. The greedy businesses that forget this and screw over customers typically shoot themselves in the foot by doing so. It's just an unfortunately reality that the rule doesn't apply once a company gets big enough, once they hit a certain point they can be rated the worst company in the world two years in a row and people will still line up to buy their shit.

It's not about being a charity. It's about keeping good customer relationships and maintaining a healthy ecosystem in your industry for a sustainable long term business model with practices that don't sacrifice future harvests for a boost in short term profits. This should be common sense.

What do you think the best game console is?
I know emulators make this largely irrelevant, but if you had to have one console in your room with every game available to it, what would it be?

I believe it's the majority of games with a handful of exceptions, and only the original 60GB and 20GB launch models are backward compatible. They removed that thanks to retards who kept crying about the console's price tag. The 80GB Metal Gear Solid PS3 had it via emulation but I think it was removed in a softwear update.
>> No. 13550 [Edit]
If we don't count the PC the only home console I have is the Switch so the answer is trivial.
I do plan to get the PS5 though, because it can play all PS4 games, so maybe the PS5 if you include all PS4 games.
Also old consoles and retro games are overrated.

Do you prefer games which involve reflexes, or games that give you a lot of time to think? Reflex oriented games like tetris and platformers feel too nerve-racking and pointless to me. Playing through castlevania 3 feels like an exercise in trial and error.

I prefer easy games because I'm bad at them and I don't have fun when a game is too hard like when I played Code Vein. Some amount of skill required is the ideal and I don't want it to be too easy but I guess somewhere between easy and normal. I like to take it easy during geimu time.
>> No. 13894 [Edit]
Games can be slow and hard at the same time. GO and shougi give you all the time you need, but they're far from easy. I guess some rpgs are like that too.

I think my tastes in video games are a little on the 'casual' side. A bit of a challenge (be it mental or physical) is nice but not to the point that the game becomes frustrating. I play video games for the experience and the escape, not to prove anything to anyone (including myself). This is why I tend to primary play AAA single player games while sprinkling in oldies and indies here between. For all their problems they can offer some memorable stories and experiences while not being too stressful to play. JRPG should fit well into this, but they're a little 'too' easy going, and can be tedious and boring in the game play departments. I've used stuff like cheat engine more than a few times to bypass grinding and focus on the rest of the game. Sure every once in a while a bit of a harder challenge isn't so bad though, and overcoming it 'can' be a bit rewarding, but most of the time I find it's not really worth it.

Until recently I haven't had much time for videogames, now that I do I've been knocking out games in my backlog one after another while occasionally dipping into old favorites. There has been a growing concern however about how long I can keep doing this. At a glance one would think there's multiple life times worth of videogames on the market, but what about worth while games when you remove all the shovelwear and half broken indie trash? I don't have issue playing older games, including those that are too new to be retro but also too old to be relevant (think wii/ps3 gen games), I'm not trying to impress anyone after all and couldn't care less about social trends.
Net games are certainly one option, but they're unbelievably repetitive with their content being very spread out (if they even have any), they also involve a social element that can be a bit off putting for an anti-social person. people spend weeks if not months playing some of these games, fighting the same type of matches over and over with friends or random strangers, that might work for them but I can't stand that and have always been a single player person.

Unfortunately the industry has been shifting away from single player games for some time now and in general it feels like there has been less and less quality content is being produced due to small and midsize production companies being cannibalized by larger companies who themselves seem only interested in continuing their one or two best selling game franchises. Someone new to videogames might find it hard to believe companies like activision, ubisoft, and EA used to actually produce a variety of decent games along side smaller companies for a healthy and vibrant ecosystem, and god do I miss those days.

Sure, there's enough videogames out there now to last a person like me a few years, but then what? What about in ten or twenty years? I worry about the day when I've played every (not garbage) game on every system and am left with nothing new to explore or learn. I can't help but feel like being 40+ is going to be insufferable.

I worry about not having enough time and life to play all the good videogames out there, I don't see how you can end in the opposite. I discover interesting retro games every week, there's always something being translated or just unknown. And I replay a lot.
Today most games are really long, they take 100+ hours and I can't even keep the interest for that long. I end playing few games per year, something like Yakuza, The Witcher, Disgaea, can take me a whole summer easily.
I don't touch on-line games. Last on-line games I played intensively were Diablo 2 and Neverwinter Nights, I don't feel any motivation to play on-line anymore.
Thinking about it, for one reason or another I haven't even properly played games I really wished to play in late 90's. 20 years ago.
I will surely die without playing some of them. It's kinda depressing.

I generally like to stick to single player games and avoid multiplayer stuff like the plague, but I caved and decided to give this a shot. So far it feels like a pretty typical MMO so I'm not entirely sure what all the fuss was about, but I'll stick with it for a while and see how it goes.

Yeah, pretty much what >>13869 said. Though I think ARR's main story quest line got revamped recently. Might be a little less of a slog now. If you do end up sticking with the game, be sure to stick with the story quests. Completing those will unlock more stuff for you to do.

I remember well, how I thought "wow, a gamepad can be this pleasing to the hands?", when I used an xbox360 controller for the first time.

PS2 is just not meant to be held with big hands and original xbox is clunky and hurts after a while.
>> No. 13789 [Edit]
I own the PS4, Xbox One and Switch Pro controller.
At the moment the PS4 controller is my favourite one for most games. The Xbox One controller is nice for racing games because it has rumble build into the triggers and they kinda feel better as gas than the PS4 ones.
The Switch Pro controller is nice but doesn't even have analogue triggers.
I like the layout of the PS4 controller with the two thumb stick on the same hight the most and the PS5 controller looks very promising in my eyes.
I can't really recommend any controllers because hands are different, you have to try them.

I like to use a DS4 as someone who is very used to playstation, but like the Swich controllers they seem to have planed obsolescence(or a design flaw) built into the analog sticks, which causes them to drift to one direction or another more and more until it's completely stuck in that direction. I've repaired them a bunch of times now on a dozen or so controllers (I've purchased controllers with this problem specifically to repair and resell them.). If it wasn't for that I'd have no complaints about them at all. Interesting thing about them that I haven't seen much mention of online, is that while V1 DS4 need an adapter to work wireless with windows over Bluetooth, the V2 PS4 controllers connect and work perfectly pretty much out of the box.
