Previews for the Firaxis marvel game are starting to come out.
It seems really weird in that it is more focused on being a Marvel story game than it is being a tactical strategy one.

Neither Marvel nor Firaxis are known for their ability to write an RPG, seems like a bad idea.

Just found out recently that XCOM has some ridiuclous low-quality phone game.
Has a bunch of nonsensically-designed original characters to gacha for.

World and Rise are the newest ones and are the easiest to get into, so consider those. If you can deal with jank and some harsh difficulty spikes, then check out one of the early ones. Check out pic related for a more detailed guide despite it being a little outdated. The best ones are the G rank games since those have the most content.

Guns Undarkness campaign over and it did well for itself.

Interesting looking Tabletop RPG involving kamen rider-inspired transformations.
Has just over 10 days left to go in the campaign, hit its goal long ago.
The goal amount asked for was pretty modest, they've managed to exceed it by multiple times.

As the Subject line indicates this is a thread for mentioning and discussing vidya that have explicit sexual, erotic and overall pornographic content.

I feel they've become much more mainstream in more recent years with things like porno games with actual budgets and gameplay appearing on heavily used digital marketplaces like Steam.

Corruption of Champions is a mostly text-based erotic game and CoC2 appearing on Steam is an instance of something that caught me extremely offguard considering the degenerate content of them
Not correct. There were several.

Do people really play Nintendo consoles for indie games?
Prior to the invention of the steam deck, a console that could also be a handheld was the best place to play such lightweight games.

So taking all bets, taking all bets on "Redfield," I wanna say it's revealed he was his brother the whole time but that seems too logical for Resident Evil.

Also, the game is really good. i mean, not 100+ dollars (if you include the season pass) good, but good.

At what point will they stop making remakes for their existing games?

Will it reach the level that they one day start not only remaking the 'mainline' games but the spinoffs too?
Resident Evil Gaiden Remake would be kind of hilarious.

Looks like Steam Summer Sale dates have been leaked, and they're a bit early compared to previous years:
>The Steam Summer Sale will begin on June 11 and last until June 20, according to a prematurely-revealed social post.

>We have life and twilight clerics, a swarmkeeper ranger, an armorer artificier, and two aberrant mind sorcerers
I've not kept up up with D&D for editions now so these terms are just bizarre to me.
Well, you have your main class which is the basic stuff: cleric, wizard, fighter, etc. These offer the majority of functions for a class, usually.

Then there's the archetype, which is usually chosen between levels 1-3 in a class and offer additional abilities. It has different names per class, but that's essentially it. Does the wizard specialize in necromancy, evocation, hitting things with a sword, etc.? That's a decision made at level 2. Fighters decide whether they're a psychic, mage, expert strategist, etc. at level 3. They're also fluffed different ways and can massively impact builds. You only get 1 archetype per class, too. It's a critical decision that can tell you more about a character than their class a lot of the time.

Also, it can muddy the waters somewhat. You can have characters that are warlocks or paladins to the same diety and they'll still play differently, but could have the same fluff because certain archtypes enable that. Saying someone is an Oath of Redemption Paladin or a Warlock with a Celestial Patron just shifts the mechanics a bit.
Don't play D&D the roleplaying game but apparently the development of Baldur's Gate 3 is running into problems, thought it worth mentioning.

Some people say it might get abandoned but that feels a bit extreme in reaction, certainly has had an extremely dragged-out 'Early Access' development period though for a Triple-A game.

I always loved Terraria. Here you can share your ideas on new bosses, weapons, armors, ect. And give feedback to people who are still trying to master this complex, sandbox game! Share your experiences in Terraria and remember, Memes are always allowed!!!
I'm terrible at this game and I mean that. Just the fucking worst, but I've found myself a nice little cycle to beat it.

Basically, I'm playing it with my brother and he's really good at every video game ever. So, he advances the game and gets rare and boss items and I handle getting the grindier stuff. It's produced a neat little cycle where we just give each other presents to move further and further through the game. We're gearing up to face the Moon Lord now.

I guess I'll also ask what everyone's favorite playstyle is, too. I like summoner because it lets me tag something and then focus on getting the fuck out of the way. I end up gearing all the stats toward defense and speed. Melee is definitely the easiest, though.
I'm not a fan of multiplayer games so back when I played this would just do everything myself. That was so long ago there wasn't half the content there is now.

Can't remember what weapons I favoured, my home base was basically a tower that reached all the way up to the stratosphere and had a gap tunnel/dry moat beneath it to prevent enemies from getting in because I was worried about all the NPCs getting hurt.
Also carved out a massive tunnel lined with glass along the map beneath it in both directions thick enough to stop Corruption from getting spread to it.

Its rather funny looking into the past like this and seeing BotW described as the "new Wii U game".

Also all the discussion about the at-the-time upcoming/current Hyrule Warriors is nice, was a game I really enjoyed.
Why did Age of Calamity suffer such janky performance in comparison to its predecessor?
Groose was too Based to be in Hyrule Warriors.
