Let's have a thread about our favorite game characters. Talk about whatever characters you like. You got a definitive favorite character /cog/? For me, it's Snake with Francis York Morgan and Dante close behind.
I've got a more general question related to 'Characters' for the thread.
When playing a videogame RPG do you prefer to create your own 'Avatar' character from scratch or take up the role of a pre-existing/pre-defined individual?

Myself I prefer the chance to make one rather than step into the shoes of an existing one.
For a first time, I tend to go for the avatar, but on subsequent playthroughs, I like to go for the latter and try to roleplay more.

Lt Surge is the coolest Gym Master because he's actually fought in wars y'know.

Specifically the war that took place abroad in a region that has only recently been declassified...

An important thing that must be remembered, since particular companies go out of their way to remove Roms from existence of games they will never go back to thus depriving people of a chance to experience them.

This goes double for games that were never translated and thus you only ever had a chance to play through fan-translation-patches.
Anyone have personal stories when it comes to that? Live A Live was mine, in the process became one of my favorite rpgs now.

Same for the older ones being some of my favorites. I've heard people back in the 2000's saying they mod their Xbox and could play all sorts of wacky games but never got a chance to figure out how.
Playing SOTN and I still have yet to get use to the controls after an hour of playtime. I like the game and remember some secrets though but I'll probably just try to play it with 99 luck to see what happens.
I'm surprised Nintendo never did anything about Palworld. Guess it falls under parody or something rather than being an actual Nintendo property.

Never hurts to get a MMO thread. Tell me your fav MMOs. I'll start with PSO2.
I don't play City of Heroes Homecoming anymore but have a compulsive need to log into my account semi-regularly and just check my characters. Its some kind of sickness.
Interesting news regarding the fan-server in question.

Its nice when devs actually support people making their old MMOs playable rather than holding it to ransom despite never planning to do anything with it ever again (but they 'might' so fuck the fans)

South Park Gaming thread, from the new RPGs to the classic first-person shooter. All are welcome.

Personally I've gotten ridiculously hyped over Fractured But Whole, makes me keep browsing the same information about it over and over again.
If anyone has something new then share it, need to scratch that itch.

Would this be the game in question.

Features the New Kid again, but instead of an rpg is an action game with co-op
Honestly this looks really lame compared to the rpgs, and it sucks they went back to the fantasy roleplaying after the superhero one instead of moving into a third brand new game.

Though the writing of FBW got pretty bad towards the end, doubt it will have gotten any better now.

Is Hong Kong 97 a meme
I mean hong kong 97 is a shitpost rather than a actual game that's why
Are we talking about an actual game or a fake game people made up and passed around a few poorly edited screenshots of to accompany the story as proof?

New LoZ thread for the new /cog/

Could talk a bit about Hyrule Warriors. People hyped for the chance to play as other classic characters from the series?

I mean, it's pretty straight forward; warriors games usually have a much simpler art style specifically to render more efficiently.
AoC is stuck with BotW's art style so it struggles a bit trying to accomplish a lot more visually than HW1.
It even emulates BotW's systems where its rendering all the grass because you can do bonus damage to enemies if you light the grass on fire while they're on it.
Perhaps would be interesting. I think perhaps Unity engine would work well for a zelda game.

last thread >>189041

Looks like Kaladesh is the artifact centric plane as we saw it in Origins. And Tezzeret is mucking about for reasons, so my bet is on Phyrexians in the second half. Poison counters plus Energy counters, oh my!

Why would you hire the Pinkertons of all people to harass someone over some cards?

Is the company intentionally trying to look like a bunch of cliche heavyhanded scumbags?

Looking forward to the thousand year door
>why does mario kart seem so much more soulless now then it once was?
Perhaps just nintendo is trying too hard to keep it relevant
>Do you consider it better to own physical copies of Switch games or just download them?
I find use for them both honestly. I think for the most part it's kind of neat to have the physical copies since you could just pop in a friend's game and play.

It was visible from the beginning, but now it's just blatant. Sony does not give a shit. If Sony wanted, they could have ordered the development and release of many great titled on PSP 2.0. With the system's power in the right hands, most games could be developed for/ported to it. Vita has enough power to handle most games that aren't TOO big or TOO long.

But Sony is not supporting the system, and I think it is a very deliberate move on their part. Is it because they fear the PS4 will fail if they won't delegate ALL resources to it? I want to know what you think (if you give a fuck to think).

Sony truly hates the Vita
Mister Twister
They half assed it, and abandoned it quickly. However, perhaps a major reason is not just Sony being assholes, but also them realizing splitting their market, while spending MORE on game development. Nintendo did it better, I admitted that years ago. Put all your money into ONE version of a game, choose if it's portable and running on limited hardware, or NOT portable but running on a stronger CPU.

I would LOVE a PSP 3, but that will never happen and it will just cost Sony more than they get, if they ever try.
Sucks because the original PSP was really damn good.
