Well, there's a 3x3 thread on /an/ and I thought it would be interesting to see what video games you guys like.

These are some vidya I've enjoyed.

Yakuza series, Fallout series, VTM:B, Deadly Premonition, Valkyria Chronicles, GOD HAND, No More Heroes, Red Orchestra & its mods, Max Payne

>I found EO2 to be the worst by far
This is also pretty true of its 3DS remake, sadly. Class imbalance is still an issue, and most monsters have inflated HP from the original just to account for the broken amounts of elemental damage the Fafnir can output.

You have a nice list too.
If you like old RE and RPG combat, you'll like it. Wasn't really a fan of the first one but I really like 2. Atmosphere is nice too. Haven't played it in a long time though, so nostalgia goggles play a heavy role.

>>12433
As dungeon crawlers SMT games are way below EO, dude.

>there's no style, no atmosphere, the sprites are ugly as sin pokemon garbage, nothing that makes it stand out.
It has style and atmosphere, imagination is just a big part of it. The music is pretty fucking great too. I'm not a fan of the enemy designs myself but it's not that important to me.
The portraits are cute though and add to the charm.

The same guy who did the soundtrack for EO did the soundtrack for Revenge of Shinobi and Streets of Rage which are my two favourite game soundtracks.

Do you guys do much game emulating?

I just found out recently my laptop can actually handle some ps2 games decently. Over the past few days I've been playing P3fes at 2x rez with a widescreen patch, and getting a mostly consistent 60fps. (and yes I own a legitimate hard copy of the game before anyone complains.)

I started during late 90's (Nesticle days), but it was only quite recently that I got a gear powerful enough to run some emulation's current state of the art. As someone whose only consoles were NES and N64, emulation has allowed me to enter a beautiful world I could only see from afar for many years.

By now I rely heavily on emulation, either on my laptop or on my GPD XD (or the combo, by means of streaming). I use Snes9x Ex+, ePSXE, PPSSPP, Drastic, Muppen64 PLus AE, PCSX2 and Dolphin without issues. I can run Citra alrigth, but nothing there really interests me. I've tried Xenia, but it turned out to be too much for my GPU. I've also been using Cemu for a while and recently became a patreon, afer watching their outstanding work with BotW (apart from the fair performance, they already made possible to play it undubbed, the only way I wanted it).

I play mostly NES and SNES games since they're easy, and I only really play them at times when I would be do nothing else
I recently tried emulating smash bros brawl on Dolphin, but I could never get >8fps, is this because I'm doing something wrong, or is it because my computer is total garbage?
>> No. 12482 [Edit]

Your computer isn't total garbage. Gamecube and PS2 emulation require very, very high end hardware to get playable frame rates. The emulators just aren't very efficient.

Nobody else played this game? I highly recommend it if you enjoy Japanese games in general.
It's got decent elements of hunting game, which Western gamers aren't so familar with, which is why I'd assume it got rather average mainstream reviews.

You get to create a waifu and use eletric-whips and the story envokes Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophies.
Just get past the delivering the hydra head mission, then the game opens up...or kind of throws you in, it won't hold your hand at all after the mission, you'll have to pay attention to what people say.

I believe you were supposed to go do most of side quests and such for xp/equipment before leaving that area, else the next areas have a steep difficulty curve and you have to resort to cheese tactics to kill stuff.

>which is why I'd assume it got rather average mainstream reviews.
It got pretty decent reviews. Very few sites gave it below 80%. There's that one asshole who claimed it's a "4.8/10" game but he's wrong.

I'd say 8/10 is a perfect rating for it. Dragon's Dogma has it's flaws but it's a really fun game.

I ran a Magic(k) Archer, which was my favorite class, on my first playthrough and subsequently a Mystic Knight. I wanted to make an Assassin but I abandoned that run and traded it in. I'd like to play it again.

The pawn system was something I really appreciated. Mine was a Strider named Moth for the first two playthroughs.

Technically it's a xbox 3.2 not 4, but with the changes it has it should be a whole different gen system.
>> No. 12425 [Edit]
I haven't had a console since the 360 (I know, I know, I was going to get the PS3, but I thought I'd 'try the other side' that gen. I regret it.) so most of the releases that might interest me are irrelevant. Ace Combat 7 seems kind of neat, but it's a cinematic trailer and the series has been in decline for a while now so it's cautious optimism. I haven't seen any releases, but the Thrustmaster Booth is showing betas for the DCS: F/A-18C and AV-8B which should also be interesting. Thrustmaster themselves are also announcing a new collaboration with Eagle Dynamics which might mean an F/A-18C stick to the same level of finish as the Warthog stick. i.e basically usable as a spare part for the real deal, and waaaaay above my budget

I agree. It's great for people who have a character from the series as their waifu because they've got all these games with them and are guaranteed many more for years to come. It's reliable in the sense that if you love the series, you'll always be able to look forward to more of it.

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.

Miyazaki didn't produce Dark Souls 2, so 3 is a direct sequel of 1.

controlls and handling is spot on, minor issues with the camera on rare occasions (no pun intended), but what I have issues with mainly is the level layouts/designs, some of the lighting/shadow work is a bit ugly at times, and the music feels very uninspired. Overall the game is 'okay' and is no where near as insulting as Nuts&bolts was. Still, You know what I think the game is missing? Center pieces for the levels. The best levels in the original game all had very memorable centerpieces that the levels were built around. Rusty bucket bay's ship, mad monster mansion's mansion, clanker in clanker's cavern, witchy world's circus tent, etc
yooka-laylee's first world on the other hand is just piles of rocks everywhere and a hollowed shell of a temple at it's center, there's absolutely nothing memorable about any of it's design I felt.

To give an idea of what I mean, when I park my car at work I usually do so in front of a lamp post, if not then near it. That's because it serves as a clear cut reference point you can use to judge your distance, speed, etc.
Likewise some of those centerpieces in those old banjo games made for good reference points. If you get lost at any point you could just make your way back to the massive snowman, crocodile, or pyramid in the middle of the level. yooka-laylee on the other hand just has piles of rocks... the maps so far feel a bit convoluted, especially the second level/world.
In the case of the music it's kind of the opposite issue and is more of them copying the original style too closely and not doing anything different/original. Rather than sounding like something new, it sounds like the music from a handful of banjokazooie levels mixed together. While playing the first level of yooka-laylee I couldn't stop thinking that it sounded like a mix of mumbo's mountain and the Cloud Cuckooland. Second world has a very nice/charming melody but not a memorable one. Keeping in tune with the original is all well and good, but you gotta bring something new to the table.

Normally I wouldn't create a separate thread for a single game. I also do my best to avoid using words such as 'best' as I don't won't to enforce my opinion upon other people or just plain upset someone. So I won't tell you that DS's best RPG and possibly its best game overall is getting a remake. Let me just say one thing: Radiant Historia Perfect Chronology got announced.
>> No. 12366 [Edit]
I wonder if anybody remembers this game, we've had a nice thread about it back in the day and it seemed to be well received. I couldn't help myself and I've made another thread for it.

I've actually redownloaded it just a short while ago, intending to replay it since I liked it so much and now this gets announced. I'm pretty excited, and a little bit anxious too. Apparently it's a 'full remake'. I guess Atlus will reveal more about it this weekend, during a presentation they have scheduled. They invited a bunch of seiyuu and judging from the low res Famitsu scan floating around the game will be voiced this time around (I think you can see 声 below the character names). On top of that there's a new female character. I think they changed the artist since the character portraits look noticably different.

Well, I just hope they won't change too much and that they'll keep the battle system intact, since it was innovative and a lot of fun. Truth to be told I'd sleep better if it the only changes were the new character, 'new scenario' and voices. But I'm excited nonetheless and I hope it'll be every bit as good as the original game.

After googling around a bit I found some more info.

First, the voice cast:
Konishi Katsuyuki - Stocke
Komatsu Mikako - Nemesia (the new character)
Takahashi Rie - Eruca
Kurosawa Tomoyo - Aht
Sakura Ayane - Raynie
Yamaya Yoshitaka - Marco
Hatano Wataru - Rosch
Kuroda Takaya - Gafka

The portraits have indeed been redrawn, as you can see in the screenshot. Personally I liked the old artstyle more but I can live with it.

The 'new scenario' is a third story node called Sub-History but from the way it's described it seems rather than being a true node it's a series of side stories related to the characters and in-game events.

It looked that way based on Famitsu scan but it was hard to tell - unfortunately Eruca's design was changed. I wonder why, considering every other design was kept the same and Eruca's was too, except for her hair. She looks really generic now. Oh well.

Atlus also revealed Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 and SMT Strange Journey remake at yesterday's event.

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.

It's not a big deal, but it bugs me a bit when games ask me to input a first -and- last name. I don't much like using my real name, and I'm not the type to play a Lenthly game as "Drew Peacock". I'd rather just use my online nick, since it feels more accurate than my 'real' name anyways. Last time I played a game like this I ended up going with <real first name> <online nick>, assuming characters in game might call me one or the other. Instead it ended up being both together much of the time.

Anyone who plays TF2 think that the competitive update ruined the feel of the game?

I don't like competitive multilayer, I just want to play a fun game. They just added it to pander to the CS GO children, and it has fragmented the community, because the only unranked games are community servers, and they are all either weird gamemodes, modded, or just empty.
