With the power of modern computing is there any good reason for turn-based gameplay except to emulate retro-games?
>> No. 11373 [Edit]
It adds some strategy to it and makes it easier to control several different characters. It's difficult to make rts or real time battles in BG without someone dying or at least without reloading many times.

FF implanted the real time battle system which I found great because it punishes for taking a long time to attack (unless that's your strategy).

Also, it's nice to have time to plan your attacks.

With the power of football, is there any good reason to play chess?

Real-time action and turn-based strategy are entirely different beasts, and both of them have value. Or they can also be mixed, with free pausing and/or slowdown in a real-time engine like in X-COM: Apocalypse or BioWare-style CRPGs.

Yes. They are more fun. That should be reason enough.
>> No. 11377 [Edit]
All games are turn based if you are fast enough.

The StarCraft OST is incredible, though I would recommend you actually hear it ingame because part of it is the experience. It is very atmospheric yet not dramatic ambience which is unique.

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.

Gaming "Journalism"
" It seems ever since the next gen consoles were released, the gaming industry hasn’t progressed along with the console themselves. We’ve seen review embargoes, buggy games on launch, 15GB day one patches, unresponsive servers and questionable contents of water in a game review. "

If you have not played this game, it is pretty awesome. You can play solo or multiplayer with up to 4 people online or local. It'd be nice to have a Tohno party.

It's just your basic dungeon crawler, but I found it fun. The music is catchy, and although it's simple, it's addictive.

Here is the launch trailer.

Legend of Dungeon (LoD) is much nicer for a similar game.

What is gamergate, what is that word and what does it mean? Is it an umbrella term for everything bad/controversial about gaming? I tried to read the wiki article, but it contains so much interpersonal drama and flippancy that it makes my head hurt.
>> No. 11309 [Edit]
it's dumb crap
>> No. 11310 [Edit]
It's a huge mess of drama that's hard to summarize. It ranges from biased media, paid for reviews, media treating videogames like kids toys, media treating 'gamers' like raciest sexist manchilden nazi bullies, and feminazis forcing their bullshit views and opinions onto gaming.

...actually describing it as an umbrella term for everything controversial about gaming seems fitting.

Whats the worst game youve ever played?

>> No. 11283 [Edit]
Before the internet you would have inevitably encountered a bad game. Guess you're a bit young and had the internet as a kid or something.
>> No. 11284 [Edit]
I am young compared to the general population, but probably about average for here. I am 26.

As a child, my game information came from other children and magazines rather than the Internet. To be fair, I'm pretty sure my family had Internet access since before I was born. However, I didn't know how to use it, and whenever I was allowed to use the computer I would just play Doom 1 or 2, some Star Wars rail shooter, or Battle Chess.

I would always rent a game before asking for it for my birthday or Christmas. There probably are some terrible games I don't remember that I rented. I think also, when I was a kid I was more easily impressed and my memory of childhood is kind of a haze. One time I rented a PlayStation game, and there was a piece of gum stuck to the bottom of it and I couldn't get it off. That was probably the worst game I ever rented.

Trying to think back now, I think I played Superman 64 at a friend's house once when he rented it. That game is obviously definitely worse than the games I mentioned earlier.

Is it just me, or is invasion much easier than the previous hardmode challenge?

I think it's because of the extra areas that give off massive amounts of xp such that I'm 2-4 levels above the area I'm supposed to be in.

That or I'm playing a summoner witch instead of a melee with no shield.
