Anyone else playing Granblue Fantasy? You can collect waifus and aidorus.
When it comes to "Mobile gaymen" I've been playing valkyrie crusade and soccer spirits mainly. Both are "waifu collector" card games, more so valkyrie crusade. soccer spirits has more depth to it, but also has male cards which I just consider bad luck draws and feed them to the moes. soccer spirits also loves to bug you to give them money every time you log on, where as valkyrie crusade you can do very well in without dropping a cent.
I do daily check ins with Love Live for gems but don't actually play it much anymore.
I also check in on sid story every now and then. It's another card collector game with extremely simple and almost pointless combat. It feels very low budget and the cards range a lot in styles from being hella cute, deviart grade, or being at the level of "what the in the fuck is that thing?!"
Shadow Warrior 2. Games like this are great for forgetting reality.
Yeah, I'm playing Granblue too. I'm making pretty decent progress, but it's a shame there's nowhere good to talk about the game. I really like the collection of characters, and the weapon pool building has surprising amounts of depth to it. Obviously the balance could use some work, but as long as you're not too concerned with min-maxing I think the game is a lot of fun. And, of course, the voice-acting and music is all top-notch.
Been playing a lot of dungeon crawlers as a break from a stg binge. I don't really have anything else to do and mazes are really neat.
Generation Xth is a lot of fun, but there is a problem with the text, pic related. It might be an issue with my monitor, but I can hardly read the text. I like it a lot, but it sucks to have to strain to read things.
I'm also intending to play the Wizardry series (again), maybe starting on the later games.
And the Labyrinth of Touhou games look amazing, I'll probably get that as well.
Is it just me or does anyone else feel it's a bit pointless to get a gpu in the 10 series with so few games coming out that would really push the hardware? Is 4k gaming really worth it?
As someone with a crappy laptop and unable to afford anything else:
Don't the GPUs last several years for good performance? If you get a Series 10 one right now, will you still be able to play games in high quality in a couple of years? I guess the answer depends more in whether you have the money to bleed.
Gotta sell those new graphics cards somehow...
Why are so many games today go so crazy with lighting effects? Tone it down, people!
VR is really stressful on cards as it needs to produce two images at the same time. There is some work being done to make it less intensive by only rendering certain objects per frame per eye, but it's not a thing yet.
Some people fell for the 4k fad as well and need a beefy GPU to play at a decent framerate (for minimal visual gain).
Which games have the best music?
DiabloI and II
well, we do have an entire board for that here. Just sayin...
There's a completely separate board for Touhou related stuff.
Also, please remember that you can get banned for posting reaction images and misusing the green text function on TC.
What's your favourite game music ever?
I liked the ost from Halo.

It takes money to make money, and the most effective way to make more is to play the markets.
I've lost $200 in the stock market so far.
The stock market is gambling, I meant the actual market. physical goods, not leaves of paper with markings on them made by the people who actually do the buying and selling.
Violence solves everything...
Damn Kiwis... they think they can make a action rpg...
Bad as in low scaling, or were you using gear 10-15 levels lower than you (or 30+ if they are rings.....)?
or did you not have a +20% granite flask with immune to bleed flask to act 4 cruel?
or did you forget to prioritize defense nodes?

but, overconfidence will get you and your perfect equipped character killed.
overconfidence or random lag spikes.
i thought lockstep mode was supposed to fix the desyncs... nope. I'll zone into a new map, get stuttering lag where i drop to 0 FPS, then watch everything catch up in fast-motion... lost my 1st character to that in act 4 normal, lost my 2nd character to it in act 1 merciless, lost my 3rd to it in act 1 cruel, then ragequit.
been playing since CBT and never had this issue before. no idea what they changed.Post edited on 20th Sep 2016, 10:04pm
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.
This game is really something.
That's one word for it.
Yeah, have finished it recently. The music, atmosphere and story are fucking great.
Path of Exile
Anyone picking up Dark Souls in a couple weeks?
I don't have a PS3, so I never played Demon's Souls, but the difficulty and its supposed fairness, plus the great combat made me interested in the game. Pretty much the same reasons Monster Hunter attracted me. I'm watching a let's play of Demon's Souls to get an idea of what I'll be up against so I'm not completely blind when going into Dark Souls. I'm almost thinking of buying a one or three month pack subscription for Xbox Live to get the full experience.
Dark Souls III
Miyazaki didn't produce Dark Souls 2, so 3 is a direct sequel of 1.
Anyone play this game here? Its got some good meme's and i think its fun. a bit to competitive sometimes tho.
callig somethig competitive in no way makes it competitive.
new cod games dont have dedicated servers meaning the game host gets an advantage. "competitive" tourneys are played on consoles, which have autoaim to compensate for the shoddy controls (joystick)
league of legends has "competitive" modes, but the developers are constantly trying to remove competitive features and homogenize the characters to make it easier to play.
even wow has "competitive" arena, but that is just a battle of who would waste more time on getting welfare gear...
20 tick means the server only updates once every 50ms. obviously its that way to make it easier to play on worse computers and worse internet. it severely limits the skill ceiling; it's a low skill game
even the "competitive" mode in csgo uses 60 tick for the servers, but actual competitive tournaments for that game use server mods to run at 120 tick.
tl;dr low tick = low skill != competitive
i mean overwatch was made to be competitive. Even in the quick play option it gets competitive. its a 6v6 team based fps, that alone makes it competitive.
I know what 20 ticks means, but what you dont understand blizzard designed the servers that way because they are brain dead. look it up Overwatch "favors the shooter".
No one is arguing if its low skill or not. but blizzard clearly designed the game to be competitive.
>blizzard clearly designed the game to be competitive
If they did, they failed miserably. Don't get me wrong, it's a fun game to hop on and screw around on once in a while, but I'm going to have to agree with the other guy here- nothing can be truly "competitive" at 20 tick. And that's to say nothing of the aim assist, gratuitous iframes on almost every character, and a broken ranking system.
I used to write like this...
With the power of modern computing is there any good reason for turn-based gameplay except to emulate retro-games?
Field a team of assaults with close combat specialist and cheese through it.
Turn-based games are more gentlemanly.
i like turn based games. they give me time to think. i hate games that are kinda turn based and kinda not, like some of the snes rpgs (chrono trigger, ff6). if you're gonna make me wait, dont punish me for taking a while to choose my move! still good games though.
