Why do people like Overwatch more than TF2?
If anyone here likes Overwatch more than Team Fortress 2 please explain why, I am curious.

The only right answer.
Though I find TF graphics and gameplay less offensive.
>> No. 12679 [Edit]
All the trappings around the game I simply prefer and find more interesting (graphics, art direction, 'lore', UI etc.), but gameplay wise the biggest reason is the the character roster and unique abilities each character has. The game offers you a better way to help out your team by playing your character to its strengths which aren't necessary always just shooting dudes, you can be helpful other ways.
I think TF2 is still fine, it's just the natural way of things growing old the next thing coming along that borrows from it, there's just more to Overwatch for me.
>> No. 12680 [Edit]
>>12679
Finally, a decent answer. Thank you.
>> No. 12813 [Edit]
OW is newer and has better marketing than TF2. Also waifu character designs.

I think I have noticed something weird in The Phantom Pain. Quite minor, but still...
So, when you get knew recruits, it displays the language they speak. Now, not all of them speak English, that is, for a little while. Yes, what I have noticed is that, once anybody stays on Mother Base staff for long enough, they will learn the English language.

I find it weird because it doesn't really effect anything, but does relate to the whole 'English is the Lingua Franca' thing.
>> No. 12783 [Edit]
In reality they'd probably stick to their language, form groups with others who speak it, and try to force it on others who don't.
>> No. 12784 [Edit]
>>12782
I don't think it's weird at all. Just another example for how these games go into detail.

>>12783
Yes, because that's exactly how it works in (para-)military organizations.

>force it on others who don't.
Like English?

I feel it is way too minor to just be detail.
And then you had the outbreak that infected anybody who spoke a certain language, and then the English strain of vocal cord parasites is still out there, and then EVERYBODY on Mother Base will speak English, I cannot help but feel it is somehow all connected.

You raise a good point about characterisation and style diversity. Characters now feel like they have a role beyond the two main archetypes in the past. There is no longer a division between chain and charge movesets. DW8 is fun, but like you said, the area bosses are just glass and not even glass cannons. If they made boss fighting a bit more like the older games where they were something that took a bit of punishment it'd be amazing because of the new and diverse roles. I'll use the examples of Zhuge Dan in DW8 who is a lockdown character basically. In a game where that ability to focus down on one target with lots of stuns and knockdowns was relevant, he'd be a super fun character to play but in DW8, you never get to explore the moveset because mashing square does the trick.

That's actually something else I've noticed too. Your chains have been getting more forgiving too, playing SW2 again (Empires here too, I don't have my PS2 at my current place and I found it for cheap for my 360 which I do have.) I've found that you need to think about your attack chains because some leave you vulnerable. Masamune for example whips out a pistol after the third square attack which is powerful as it breaks blocks, but it is also single target and lets you get mobbed and stagger locked by peons. So if you are fighting in a horde, you need to be careful to not go beyond 3 attacks. In DW8, the chains are just a matter of time, there are no disadvantages with longer ones that need to be considered.

As for characters as visual and personalities though, the new designs are also just great like you said. I'm fond of Zhuge Dan as I said, but Yu Jin is also really cool. One thing I really really like is that they've expanded on the minor characters. It is certainly a step up in some ways from earlier games, that's for sure. Too bad that Empires was pretty trash for it, the mechanics that they used were overall not much fun which is a true shame because I actually like the new model of the expansion where they have almost made it a kind of RPG-strategy-musou chimera. It's a lot more engaging to play the game as a character instead of as a factio

Seeing as there was some Musou fans here, has anybody played the recent Warriors All Stars PC port? It's gotten good reviews on steam, but I want to know whether it's half as interesting as it sounds from people I trust. It appears to have some interesting features.

Are there specific genres of games you dislike entirely (or almost entirely)?

For the sake of the thread, let's not count sport games.

The vast majority of JRPGs.

It's a shame, because I enjoy every aspect of JRPGs apart from the actual gameplay - they tend to have very good atmosphere, music and interesting stories. I completed Final Fantasy X and others when younger, but realised it had become a chore to finish and I was only playing to get to the next cutscene.

I just find the grinding/turn-based battles very repetitive and unengaging. I only enjoy action-based battle systems such as in Nier, and those games are quite few in number.
>> No. 10882 [Edit]
I've never disliked the entirety of a genre before, I can find numerous things that are likable to me in all of them.
But there are a few select franchises in most that drive me up the wall. Pokemon being one of them. The games are all so brain dead that I can't understand how anyone could find them enjoyable. There's so many quality, actually thought provoking RPG titles out there but all most people want to play is shit like final fantasy and persona.
This extends well and beyond RPG's of course, it's just the best example I could give at the moment.

>your teammates are your worst enemy because they simply don't know what they're doing. Maybe they somehow thought it was a good idea to jump into multiplayer before even touching single player
Exactly what I think when I see them. My guess is that they're super normies and don't give a fuck about making your experience bad because, to them, it's just a game.

The legacy league got old once you learned to not fill the league slots with bad combinations once you get bored of clearing through maps on auto-pilot for xp.

I like the new set of Acts. The story is a lot more interesting than the D2 system of getting to the end and doing it again on a harder difficulty.

The new bosses all have a metric crapload more health than they really ought to have, but the fights are quite enjoyable.
>> No. 12772 [Edit]
FOTM builds nerfed as usual, and now leveling in Maps is more grindy -- especially the last 10 levels to 100.

Also, for some stupid reason, evasion was further nerfed, because there weren't already enough things that bypass evasion that make it nigh useless already.

We already have a thread for full video game OSTs but how about one for individual tracks?

I'll start, I'm crazy about Let's Do the Odyssey! from Super Mario Odyssey, I never would have expected a song like this from a Mario game.

Been playing a USA game in Darkest Hour recently. The entire soundtrack for Hearts of Iron II is really good, it actually works really well despite the slow pace of the game because of how the tracks have highs and lows that fit your ships moving from LA to Wake as well as they do marine landings on Iwo Jima. In terms of immersion for this theatre, Japanese Spirit stands head and shoulders above the others. It makes the micromanagement and frustration of moving large numbers of troops across contested oceans onto tiny specks of isolated rock actually pretty cool instead of annoying as shit.

No song makes me as ready to race as this one in MK8. That saxophone is just amazing on it's own but it also plays really well with the guitar. Just being able to hear this while racing is one of the things that made the DLC worth it. It's even better listening to this while racing in 200CC.

How do you play VNs on linux? I am using a version of GNU/Ubuntu and noticed AGTH doesn't run in WINE. what do you use?

Virtualbox layered mode with the vn and texthooker in the virtual machine. I don't read many VNs so haven't experimented much but this works pretty well on an otherwise shitty laptop with a lot of RAM.

When my old Windows PC broke and I only had my laptop, I used wine. The VNs I played during that time ran well, never encountered a problem but I have to admit that it wasn't that long until I got myself a new PC.

One of the best TPS I've ever played, I've been playing this in the last 10 years and this game never gets old. It's amazing all the different things you can do and the different game modes you can play. This game really needs more recognition.
