Not really a video game, but would anyone be interested in playing DnD? We were wanting to play using an online tabletop and maybe voice chat. We would be playing either Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 or 5th edition. All the books are available online for free, though the 3.5 havent been in print for a while so they're easier to find, plus there's alot more of them to draw from for your character.

So who wants to play?

Hard pass. D&D seems fun but not if I have to listen to other people.

without voice chat a single game is a thousand times longer, definitely a social activity and wouldn't work in a reclusive community ironically

another game people pretend is hard because they're so used to games where the only way you can die is if you play in a suicidal manner.
any game where death is possible through normal play gets an epic meme status now cause casualization is so bad and widespread it's a novelty.
doesn't compare at all to old platformer difficulty, isn't noteworthy at all.
people should stop compromising.

I just finished Nioh. Or the vanilla new game, anyway. I do plan on continuing into New Game+++ and the DLC and shit of course, which seems to be a lot better than the normal game from what I've heard.

It's my favorite game of all time. It definitely has some problems, most notably the poor music (none of the bosses have a unique theme) and cutscene budget (the final cutscene was disappointingly cheap), magic being overpowered and boring, and the loot system … also being boring. But these latter issues seem to be fixed in NG+ so I'm very excited to get into the actual game here now.
Last problem I can think of that I have with the game is that there isn't enough incentive to wear Light armor. I went through half the game using light armor and it was insane, you die in one hit. Which is good in some ways. I really like seeing a game make armor actually fucking matter. I am tired of games like Dark Souls where there is little noticeable difference between wearing heavy plate armor and running around fucking naked. The difference is definitely noticeable here.
But I don't feel like Nioh got the armor right, either. There just aren't enough benefits to wearing light armor. Ki (stamina) is the only big bonus you get for wearing light instead of heavy armor, with the exchange being dying in one hit to even random encounters, and it just isn't enough of a trade off. I never have a problem with ki management even using an ax and the heaviest armor in the game. I would have really butted heads with the devs over balancing this had I been there with them…

But I guess that is just kind of nitpicky. There are people who make the light armor work, it is actually seemingly the most used armor class for some reason? Maybe I am just severely retarded.

I'm a big fan of Team Ninja and Monster Hunter, you can really see the Ninja Gaiden influence everywhere, of Japan, Asian history, and demons. This game is kind of like a wet dream.
I went into the game blind and didn't know what to expect and as soon as I saw the opening cinematic, I was hooked.

When I heard that the main game is over 100 hours long, I was very scared that I had made a mistake buying it.

Hey, I got a PS4 for Christmas, and with it, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2.
I have decided I want to commit myself and understand this game inside and out. I want to master it and have something to be proud of. I have never been good at anything in my life. (And the possibility of swindling money from normalfags with my skills is nice, too)

Would anyone like to join me? It is utterly useless to play against the AI. I need a human opponent, someone at my same zero skill level, we can grow together! We can share resources! We'll play and discuss Guilty Gear every single day!
If you master one fighting game, you master them all since they are fundamentally the same. This is an invaluable opportunity!
I'm going to EVO 2018, I am carpooling with someone for free, and maybe by that time we'll be confident enough to even compete!

What do you say? I currently play Kum Haehyun, but I still may switch to someone else.
Add me on Discord if you are interested. フードファイター#3019 <- my discord ID.
I don't currently have PS+ so I can't play online yet but I'm too new to waste my time fighting you right now, anyway. I am spending a lot of time in tutorial mode first.
I will delete this thread once I get someone to partner up with. If this thread is up, I am available.

Maybe BB really is a bit easier in the long run, but you get a faster start with GG because basic combos are easier and deal better damage. And GG has many cute girls, too! Actually, I'd say GG has the best-looking cast there's ever been in a game.

People like to trash on MGS: Portable Ops a lot but it's actually written by Mikumo Gakuto, who has written series' such as 'Dantalian no Shoka' and 'Asura Cryin''.
Has me interested, but I don't think I could regress to PSP graphics and controls.
>> No. 12847 [Edit]
 
The stock graphics are better than the ps1 MGS and can look just as good as the ps2 games. Do you also refuse to play MGS1 because of the graphics? It was even re-released on ps3 with some minor upgrades. You can also run it on an emulator and up the graphics more if you like. If you run it on an emulator you'd have plenty of freedom to change the control layout by the way.

>> No. 12851 [Edit]

It's just, I've played the HD remake of Peace Walker and found the controls to be clunky.
I don't have a problem with low graphics, maybe it's just because PW was a PSP game being blown-up to a 40 inch television screen it kind just 'felt' weird.

I don't refuse to play it, if somebody handed it to me I'd play it for sure, I'm just not sure I want to go out of my way to get it only to find out I can't handle the controls.
I don't mean controls as in buttons per se, more the feeling of movement et cetera in-game.

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.

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.

Finally, a decent answer. Thank you.

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.

I don't think it's weird at all. Just another example for how these games go into detail.

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

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

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.

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.
