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.

>I wouldn't consider anything not published by Nintendo or Intelligent Systems to be official.
I guess 'official' is the wrong word. I really mean that these sources should have their facts straight more than anything, considering they're trying to inform people on these topics. Instead it more or less just feels like they're all copying the same thing from each other and spreading around the misinformation.
>Ctrl+F gives no mention of "男の娘" on the Japanese Wikipedia article for the game.
Sorry for being a bit misleading there. I meant I looked up the word 男の娘 on Japanese Wikipedia (as in and confirmed it had nothing to do with identifying as a woman.
That being said, looking atペーパーマリオRPG and scrolling down to Vivian's part seems to confirm that he's supposed to be a man in the Japanese version, not a 'transgender'. More specifically, this bit 一人称は「アタイ」でクリスチーヌですら可愛いと言われるほどカワイイ女の子のように見えるが、実は男の子である(ドイツ語版、英語版のみ女性として扱われている)。with translates to "By using the first person pronoun 'atai' (cutesy feminine pronoun) even Goombella thought he was enough of a cute girl to call "cute", but really he's a man. (In the German and English versions only, he is female.)"

It should be mentioned that while you probably wouldn't want to be caught dead referring to yourself specific ways in public, I don't believe any of the Japanese first person pronouns are 'exclusive' to one sex, merely carrying a sort of air around them.
As another aside, 男の娘 is a bit of a casual way to refer to stuff like this, so that's why it's probably not in the wikipedia article. I pulled the term mostly from and th

The issue here is the definition of "transgender". If, to qualify as transgender, one requires recognition by one's social environment as being transgender, then I suppose you could say Vivian isn't. But if mere self-identification, regardless of public perception, is the only thing that matters (as trans people and their advocates seem to define it), then I would think it fair to consider Vivian (or any other 男の娘 who identifies as female) transgender. Using the latter definition, how players or other characters or even the devs perceive Vivian is irrelevant. All that would matter would be Vivian's own self-perception.
>The way people right about Vivian in English articles you'd think his entire existence is one big thank you to the 'trans community'.
Yeah, I think that view of Vivian is misguided. The game isn't exactly a shining affirmation of trans empowerment or anything. I do think that most Japanese players, as well as the staff who created the game, probably view Vivian as a comically gay man.
>I actually can't find a result for カゲ三姉妹
A transcript of the scene I'm referring to is under the References section of the Mario Wiki article you initially linked. There are also links to relevant videos of the Japanese version there.

I'd recommend you play the N64 Paper Mario as well. It and its direct sequel are quite similar. The first stretch might be annoying due to the initial lack of Action Commands, though (available later after a tutorial).
Super Mario RPG does feel more traditional, but I feel it still has more in common with its successors than with the stereotypical JRPG. You can jump around on the overworld, avoiding enemies that are clearly visible. Battles have Action Commands and a pool of FP shared among party members. You don't really use other party members' abilities on the overworld, though.
Mario & Luigi's battle system is nice in that it lets you more easily avoid damage entirely and sometimes even counter while on defense by jumping or hammering, with timing windows a lot more

I didn't want to make a thread just for it and this one will fit I guess. I'm currently playing Puyo Puyo games, A week ago I finished Dr. Robotnik Mean Bean Machine as I was replaying childhood games and this time the whole mechanics behind it fascinated me a great deal. Didn't even know it was just a reskin for a PP game.I got so hooked by the gameplay and concept I started playing the other ones and it's a ton of fun, to the point I've decided to play only PP games this year and make a Twitch acc. to sort of record my progress and keep me motivated.

I'm playing every day for at least 2 or 3+ hours. Now, I'm not good at it, in fact I'm really, really bad. So if you come by to watch it don't expect nothing more than me screwing up PP patterns and losing over and over again. You can use it as background noise or something. I don't use a mic or show my face, this is all about the game. Tohno is one of the very few online places I still find it decent and comfy to a degree, so I felt like telling you guys about this. Anyway come by if you like, I'd appreciate it.

I haven't seen any dialogue where Vivian recognized himself as a woman, aside from a possible interpretation of the 三姉妹 comment, although I haven't played through the game in Japanese.
I'll try out the other Mario RPGs when I have the time, they seem like a lot of fun.
Reminds me that I should also play the Madou Monogatari games. I only finished Hanamaru Daiyouchienji, which was admittedly a huge slog at the end but overall enjoyable. I also never beat Masked Satan in Puyo Puyo Tsu now that I think about it, although I'd imagine that's rather difficult to do given the score and 1cc requirement. Best of luck in improving your skills.
Also the openings for Sun and Puyo Puyo~n are wonderful.

Come on now, there's gotta be something you're sick of seeing get over used in videogame after videogame.
Something you wish they would just stop with already.

Personally, for one, it's most modern games limiting how many weapons you can cary at any one time to just two or three.
useualy being, one small weapon, such as a hand gun, and one or two bigger guns.
This I suspect to be not for realism, but to cover for their own laziness and unwillingness to make more available weapons for the game.

Time for an update.

So far we've played 17 different games by my count, so we're doing alright as far as that's concerned. Unfortunately meeting up has been an issue. Organizing things ad hoc turns into a mess of 'I'll be free in an hour' followed by 'ah I'm running late, give me 30 mins more' to which others respond with 'no good, I don't have that much time left, gotta leave in an hour' et cetera. There were several occassions where we spent like 3h trying to organize a single 60 min board game, heh.

As such from now on we plan to meet up once, maybe twice a week at same day, same time every week. The two most likely candidates are either Saturday or Sunday at 19 GMT. Additionally Fridays around midnight GMT are an otpion.

For the time being we plan to meet up on Saturday the 16th at 19 GMT. Hopefully the turnout will be solid and we'll be able to settle on something permanent.
If anybody is interested don't feel shy, hop on IRC and join us.

I didn't mind it but it was not one of my favourites. Saitou was cute, the water leader was okay, the Ice one looked alright but she was only in Shield. I didn't really like the story or the villains, much of the game felt streamlined and lacking because of this, like for example the villain organisation that operates parallel to the progression of the story. There really wasn't much of one in this game and when they did show up it was just for one or two battles and even when you go to the true villains base it's just a few battles set in an incredibly linier fashion, the whole game feels like that, linier. I'm not sure of this but it also felt like the Pokemon did more damage to each other, an enemy Pokemon only a few levels above mine would use bite and one shot them even though it was not a critical or effective attack, conversely my Pokemon would often one shot theirs and would sometimes do it even if the attack was not very effective(Hatterine's psychic attacks did this). There were not any amazing new Pokomon either although Hatterine was nice, the ultimate Pokemon looked stupid and you pretty much have to catch it so it feels cheap as well.

Agreed, especially about the linearity and new Pokemon. I never felt a sense of adventure or intrigue, which is funny considering the Wild Areas and such. Another thing that really annoyed me was the decision to tie badges to catching Pokemon. Absolutely stupid. The entire experience made me want to go play another game like Digimon or an older Pokemon title, or just go on Pixiv and twitter to collect that delicious fan art. Game Freak is doing a disservice to this franchise, and I'm not even a Pokemon fan.

>Saitou was cute
Saitou is beyond cute. The guy who who designed her should be given a raise.

Tell me about your favorite video game artist.

Mine is Kazumo Kaneko. aka the guy who does the character and demon art for the Shin Megami Tensei games. I love his style and especially his strange demon designs. Sometimes they're sort of traditional-looking, but most of them are interesting takes on mythological and religious figures. I also love how Demi-Fiend here is grabbing Angel by the head, as though he was some kind of demonic pimp. She's obviously not enjoying it.

Honorable mentions to Ryoji Majima and Takehito Harada, the artists who did the designs for all of Nippon Ichi's games (La Pucelle, Disgaea and all the spinoffs) as well as to the artist for the Ar Tonelico games whose name I've forgotten.

Who else here prefers old video games over new?

I know people are probably sick of hearing this but I just have such incredible nostalgia for the games of the late 90s and early 2000s. It felt like every major release was something I was excited about, and they were games that other people were excited about too - Majora's Mask, Final Fantasy X, Metroid Prime, etc. Now every headline-grabbing game is yet another generic open world RPG and/or FPS, and I just don't feel like keeping up with the mainstream gaming community at all. I played 2 hours of Skyrim and it bored me to tears. Fallout 4 is such a normie thing, it's disgusting. I basically only play Nintendo games and other japanese games now.

I'm pretty excited about The Last Guardian and Shenmue 3 though, and other people are excited about those too. Gives me some hope.

This here is sonic racing for 3DS. The course is supposed to change during the race, but here the path became completely walled off making it impossible for me or the ai to finish the race.
>> No. 13184 [Edit]
I forgot that they also released that game on the 3DS.

Anyway, the last one I remember was in Xenoverse 2 where I was doing one of the Expert Missions with a random. I was pretty much forced into a section where I had to fight a miniboss, however, the miniboss didn't spawn and I couldn't get out unless my teammate broke the crystal that contained the area I was in. I had to spend the next 5 minutes waiting for the mission to fail because my teammate couldn't or didn't know what to do while I was trapped in another area with some of the AI teammates the game gives you for EMs.

I'm not sure if this was caused by lag or something, but it was pretty awful since I could've beat the mission pretty easily on my own.
