They don't. Maybe some of them actively lurk, but as with the case of any imagboard, branch-off community on a more polular "platform", it's mostly made up of people who maybe visted the original a few times.

ITT, what you're curently playing for the time being, or just finished, new or old games alike.

As is, I'm on assassin's creed brotherhood myself after having finally gotten around to playing killzone 2, which was a tad bit on the disappointing side, but works fine for a mindless shooter I guess.
AC:B on the other hand is pretty good so far I think.

Anyone have any thoughts on Muse Dash?
I'm trying it and I feel a mixture of really liking and somewhat disliking the art and I can't pinpoint why
>> No. 14312 [Edit]
I bought it last time it was on sale and dirt cheap.
It came across like a trap because the base game felt a little like a demo and the DLC is where they get you. Call me a weeb, but I was kind of annoyed 70% of the music that comes with the base version is in Chinese, and you have to pay extra for the glorious Nippon tunes. The art might be Chinese too which could be the issue you're having, I know the way it's animated is certainly a bit unusual looking. I ended up pirating the switch version with all the music. It certainly can be fun gameplay wise. Really gives off that arcade music game feeling.
>> No. 14313 [Edit]
Chinese art huh, and the girls speak japanese, I guess they knew chinese wouldn't sound as good.
What a strange product. But yes the gameplay is fun, really dopamine inducing, not at all the Miku replacement I was looking for though.

I basically grind my irl job for paying back a loan so meanwhile I waste time in mmos nowadays, got back into FFXIV because of a "friend" but I don't find it too enjoyable so usually get back to EVE Online.

An offline time-sink would be preferred because I have trash mobile connection but I played most of the Neverwinter Nights modules I was interested in so I'm not sure where to go now, really enjoyed Elegia Eternum & Excrucio Eternum.

By my count it's been 13 weeks since we set the new time and we managed to play something on 12 of those so we're doing pretty well. We've played over 25 different board games by now. Don't be afraid of the new kid on the block syndrome, we don't play anything that's too complex to explain right before the game.

Not sure if I'm not just replying to the person who drew that to begin with but here goes anyway.
Since most of the games we play are new to almost everybody in the group there are times when there's a lot of downtime for other players because somebody is thinking about their options or plain confused about some rules. That's inevitable with new games. Eventually we'll get past that point when people will familiarize themselves more with the games. For now we can be grateful there are some ways of killing that downtime (like doodling).

We're still playing on Sundays, at 23GMT. Newcomers welcome.

I searched every board and could not find a thread for this. Either I am blind or there is not one. Yes, I know there's a Dwarf Fortress thread, but that is not the same thing.

My favorite game is Nethack and I never get a chance to talk about it. I suppose I sometimes do in the IRC, but IRC is too fast for me.

Anyone here play Nethack?

If he's talking about the visuals yes, but I think he means the inconspicuous way the story is told by being silently dropped here and there through item description and small, loose conversations that you have to piece together instead of railroading and hitting you with a loud cutscene loaded with exposition, which is something I also like it a lot. Given how on the nose GoT is with its flamboyant and sometimes obnoxiously loud characters, I understand the concern of connecting GRRM to this project, though It's probably unfair to say that writing something with more restraint is beyond him. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

If that's the case, I do think calling that Japanese design philosophy is rather odd though. That approach to storytelling is pretty much how locked-room mystery fiction works, which is not something Japanese originally. Gamewise, many D&D stories work the same way (grimdark, unobtrusive characters and plot, finding pieces of information you have to put together like a puzzle), and some of those supplements came out in the 70s. Well, I don't expect anyone to be as sick and addicted to consuming massive amounts fiction as I am to even know that stuff exists anymore, but still.

That said, I still agree with that anon in the sense that the way the Japanese understand dark fantasy and grimdark, at least in the soul games, is very attractive. It has a very special type of silence and the whole thing has this self-effacing approach to it that is hard to explain. I know it might not look like if you're just paying attention to some of the more gaudy weapons and armor designs you find in the series but it's there, and it's certainly very different of how GRRM usually understands it, or approaches it at least. I feel the same way with how some Japanese developers understand post-apoc and distopias, I'm thinking about games such as Panzer Dragoon Saga. I would probably have to write an essay to explain exactly what I mean but I'm sure most of you already know what I'm talking about.

For some reason the protag's design looks like a sentai character and feels a little out of place for me. The color scheme feels off as well. Still excited nonetheless. Also looking forward to the new Super Robot Wars and Fatal Frame.

The English trailer for Rune Factory 5 was recently released. It's pretty sad to see that the style of the graphics looks poorer than Frontier, but perhaps that's just me. Thankfully, visuals aren't high on my list outside of the character portraits, but I will miss the 2D artwork of the previous games; they were quite pleasing. Also, since the Rune Factory 4 Special included Japanese voices, while the original English release of RF4 didn't, I remain hopeful 5 will also have them.

>there is no romance option and relationships are generally just triggers to advance plotlines.
This is why it's low on my backlog, but then again, I'd probably would have already finished it if I played games more often.

>the bgm is good
Speaking of, it kills me that SoS and Rune Factory games possess such mediocre (or even sub-mediocre) BGM. This is one of the easiest things to fix, and yet it's still a problem. The fact that a spin-off has better music than the mainline games is both good to hear but also kind of saddening.

>Seems like they are adding new communities with the new patches but it only makes it even more disjointed to me.
Tree of Tranquility and Animal Parade had something similar where there were districts scattered across the world: shops, industry, and farmlands. They looked pretty nice, actually, but it also meant the player needed to travel more--kind of a hassle.

>A New Beginning sounds interesting but I did read up on it and unfortunately it seems that it's riddled with a lot of issues as well and the aforementioned system aren't very well implemented.
Biggest problems with the town-building is that it's tedious. If future games improved upon it, I think such a feature would be a great asset to the series. But the worst part of ANB is that the first month was an absolute slog, and it's one of those games that require one to collect and horde items to complete story objectives. As I mentioned in previous posts, I'm pretty sure this is done

Yeah, I suppose the bgm for the series were never its strongest suit. That said the mineral town series probably have the most memorable ones in the series in my opinion and the ones made for the sixth generation consoles were decent as well.

I feel like playing something, like an rpg. I don't know where to look or who to trust when it comes to recommendations since out there it's a flood of garbage and ulterior motives.

Strategically focused and good aesthetics are mainly what I'm looking for. A good story is preferable. Something with a pc version too. Even better if it has risque elements. The last game I played was Monster Girl Quest Paradox, so something in that vein would be nice.

I don't know if it's going to fit your criteria but the Saga Frontier Remaster was released on PC recently, other than that there's Persona 4 and if you want something more recent there's DQ11. Those are the only few RPGs I've played in recent times that I can think of at the moment. If you want translated eroge you could try here

>Saga Frontier Remaster
Looks interesting. Thanks.
>> No. 14249 [Edit]
It doesn't imply anything, I don't play games in order or particularly care if a game is old or not, Soul Nomad just happens to be one of my favourite RPG's ever and it fits the criteria. And obviously I don't play all games and PC isn't even a platform I use for most of the year, so extrapolating my recommendation to a supposedly terrible situation of the RPG genre is just an awful idea.
If you were asking for newer games then I guess Valkyria Chronicles would also fit, IV is relatively new, though I can't say too much about the story.

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.

General nostalgia thread.
What were your favorite games growing up? I loved playing Sunset Rider, even though I couldn't play worth a shit. I'd spend hours trying to beat a level. I just found it on a rar'd pack of ROMs I dled.

This thread is for the sharing and discussion of unreported bizarre bugs that you've come to encounter during your time playing videogames.
I'll start with this one from Fallout New Vegas:
I was at the Freeside entrance to the Strip, when one of those random maniac vagrants appeared. I used VATS to kill him. But VATS was very slow, even more so than normal, much slower than usual. It took almost a minute to the bullet to hit the guy. I tried it again, same result. I went to pip-boy to see if there was something wrong, so I pressed B and pip-boy opened, when I pressed B again, the pip-boy closed but at the same time, I fired my weapon. I tried this one more time, same result. I tried to shoot normally, it would work only with the B button, and it seemed slower, I couldn't connect two shots very fast, with semi-automatic and fully auto weapons, the weapon fired only once, then a pause and I could fire again. Knifes and similar hand-to-hand combat weapons also worked like this. But they would respond to the normal RT trigger, to attack. The knife wouldn't connect the slashing attacks like it should, but only slash once, return to initial position and then I could slash again. I tried loading another save, but nothing worked. I exited the game and removed the CD, it was very hot, VERY hot, almost burning. I left it outside to cool down, and next time I played everything went to normal again.
