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.

This video makes me so nostalgic, it was great seeing somebody mess with mass AI and keeping it all in sync so well. I watched this one a long time ago so it's very special to me.

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.

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?
>> No. 12930 [Edit]
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.
>> No. 12931 [Edit]

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.

Don't you hate how even an idiot can complete a hard game by simply Googling it?
That's the problem nowadays, it's not that games aren't hard, it's that it is too easy to look up the answers.

I'm the stupidest stupid that ever stpuded on this stpuid planet stupid so it's pretty convenient for me. I try and work out a puzzle myself first, really try, and if after repeated attempts I can't solve it I look up a solution.
Or I google it if I don't want to deal with it. I always broke many rules gamers held sacred but... eh, whatevs. It's a game, not a test.
>> No. 12707 [Edit]

Games and tests are quite similar, both ask you to solve the problem presented.
You might be too used to looking up the answers, like how modern humans are used to technology and wouldn't be able to start a fire or skin an animal.

The plot only contradicts itself when Kojima tries to erase MGS2 from Metal Gear history, which is every-time MGS2 needs to be brought up.

MGS2 is my favourite game. I wish he kept playing it weird even if it alienated some people. The third one was supposed to feature permadeath and restarting the game if you died. I also hate that the ending of 4 was changed because of bad first response to it.

Me too man.
But I don't think Kojima himself cared much for it, seeing as he personally tries to forget it exists (Ground Zeroes Deja Vu mission, the MGS2 logo is hidden behind a sign you have to physically destroy to see, then Miller says 'Snake's polygons' instead of Raiden's even though Raiden is the main character).
You see, people forget (because nobody ever reads the credits) that MGS1, 2 and 3 had another writer by the name of Tomokazu Fukushima, and he is solely credited as the 'Codec Script' writer. All other Metal Gear games do not feature him as a writer.

You may or may not have noticed it, but MGS1, 2 and 3 had a specific kind of anti-Americanism, it wasn't a direct attack but a sort of acknowledging that 'might makes right' (America being the mightiest) even if that 'right' isn't what is good.
When Fukushima leaves Konami (after MGS3), the theme disappears.

But yeah, that's business. Can't help that most people are intolerant of philosophy.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time or Super Mario Galaxy.
Both games had an emotional impact on me, Ocarina gave me a sense of wonder and adventure. I was mesmerized when I first stepped out to Hyrule Field because before that I played Wind Waker. In that game I saw a place I wanted to see more of outside of the castle area but I couldn't explore it until I played Ocarina of Time and I stepped out into a vast area I just wanted to see and know more of. It gave me a sense of wonder and adventure so few games ever give me.

Super Mario Galaxy was another one, it also gave me a sense of wonder to see so much creativity go into a portrayal of space like what I saw. There was also another character who I admired for years and have a lot of respect for, which is probably why some people thought she was my waifu.

Both games rest in my collection and my memories as very well-loved favorites.
