Ok so I've pt in about 2 hours or so and already there are glaring problems.
Like starting up the game with quicktime events. That is the bulk of what you will be doing for the first tutorial segment. And if you fail, you cannot skip the cutscenes beforehand like in other RE games.

The game tries HARD to crib on the atmosphere and feel of RE2 and 3 (playing the campaigns in order so Leon is first) and while it somewhat succeeds in getting the atmosphere of panic (fantastic enemies and lots of them) everything is so godamn dark you car barely see what's going on most of the time.

Large sections are filled with nothing. Places in other RE games where you would find a collectable or another pickup are devoid of anything.

Quicktime events

The game also felt the need to constantly strip me of my default run (great addition) into a walk that is slower than the walk Chris had in RE1 for the PS1 while also removing other abilities such as aiming. Quick turn seems to decide when and what it wants to do with the camera. Want to turn around and take care of the shit behind you? Tough shit because the camera didn't turn with you.

There does not seem to be a pause button. Even changing the settings is done in real time. What the fuck? (I admit this may be my fault? Maybe there's some sort of super offline mode I need to turn on to do this? But if I set it so tha no one can join why does it matter?)

The game somehow feels more railroaded than every other game including Umbrella and Darkside Chronicles. Why can't I find a save point? Why do I have to rely exclusively on checkpoints if I want to quit out of the game now?

Quicktime events

Mixing herbs to recover HP is handled the worst way I have seen in a RE game to date. You gotta mix that shit in real time, then put it in your little medicine case, then eat them one at a time to recover one block of health at a time unless I'm missing something which would be possible since the tutorial was pretty much nothing but quicktime events. The inventory management is also total shit and clumsy as all hell.

Melee is not tied to a stamina gauge which I can't decide if it's a good idea or not because I'm the kind of asshole who liked to do knife exclusive runs when and wherever possible. Overall though I like the melee system a lot more. The combat dodging seems like it would come in handy as was sorely missed in RE4 and 5 so it's good to see it make a return here in a way. Also crab walking down and up stairs is hilarious and stupid.

Quicktime events


So far past me is completely justified in his harsh review of RE6 from that one demo. The controls overall and the way items are handled in this game make it extremely frustrating and clumsy to play, not to mention the fact that so much shit is pitch black and they keep dangling nostalgia over your head seemingly as though they knew it was a bad game and it was all they had. Resident Evil Revelations is by far and above the best control scheme the series has ever had and it clearly took this travesty to get them there.

I wonder who they're getting to voice Leon in RE2Make. Darkside Chronicles used RE4 guy (my fave) for the RE2 sections but it's been so long that I don't know if he wants to or is able to reprise it anymore, ORC's sucked, and Matt Mercer is a decent VA but he's either too "brash shounen idiot" or "coolcat playboy" for Leon the green cop.

Hence companies ran past the 70s are largely run like shit with little attention paid to how they are presented past how it effects the bottom line.

That being said Nintendo is closer to how older companies used to be with a person working their way up to the big chair rather than some board picking some shark from a business school.

If we're being fair, that was accelerated aging hitting Snake really suddenly. Big Boss himself was already gonna hit 80 by the time he finally dies in MGS4.

The real issue is that there isn't that much of a time difference between Peace Walker and Ground Zeroes, when the VA switch is made, and Hayter was kinda iconic as Snake.

With MGSV coming out soon I've been following some of the spoilers, and it got me thinking about Ocelot a little. No spoiler warning necessary because it's something that's been known forever, and the spoilers might not even be true, but the gist of it is that Ocelot's entire motivation for his actions from MGS3 onward is that he's in love with Big Boss (who may or may not reciprocate in that way, idk).

If Ocelot was a woman, people would be (rightfully) coming down on it for defining herself entirely by being in love with some guy. But since Ocelot is a man people don't. Is it because gay representation in games is so rare that people are willing to accept him despite the flaws? Is it because most of the the people who care are yaoi fangirls only concerned whether their OTP is canon or not? Is it because this kind of issue affects women more than gay men so it's irrelevant? Is it because he's so entertaining it doesn't really matter? Serious question, and if anything I just said is offensive it's not my intention.

Thats actually a really good point to bring out. If anything, you're likely to bring out one or another staunchie, but thats a worst case scenario.

I think the whole issue behind defining a female character solely because of their romantic feelings towards a man is that it continues the long standing trend of defining them as such. Its not uncommon. Its not offensive either, but it doesn't show any non-cliche, inventive thinking from part of the writer. Which is not to say women have no business acting around their romantic feelings - but deviations from said trend are well to be maybe not celebrated but definitely seen as a step in giving a female character's story more options.

As for Ocelot. Its a very repeated phrase but, this isn't a vaccum. The context surrounding the cultural implications of such don't make it the exact same case as a woman in the same situation. Its not common in media, especially videogames. There's a multitude of reasons why its not negative for him.
For one, there's a lot to Ocelot besides his dynamic with Big Boss. A conniving crack shot with chronic backstabbing disorder with an entire past in special forces. An antagonist in 4 games.

As for myself, I do very much believe the theory that Ocelot is indeed in love with Big Boss. Not as an erotic thing for myself, but as a character I do think its what makes the most sense for him. Unreciprocated, sure. But since 3 its very much a real character arc for Ocelot. And I think he as a character benefits greatly from that added depth.
Otherwise, you could clearly read it as a very flat mook character servicing the player character for no reason other than they are the player character who needs characters at their disposal.
I'm not sure its even definition more than it is an added layer.

Metal Gear Solid 4. The reason the Patriots are put together is to carry on the will of The Boss. Thats what the founding members set out to do and it resulted in rifts between them.
You could say the entirety of the major antagonistic force, The Patriots, Zero and Big Boss define their actions around The Boss.
And I wouldn't call it negative either. Because again, the outer context of this makes for not only a refreshing take on a relationship between men and a woman, but an exercise in a display of good character writing, what a great character arc Snake and The Boss had in Snake Eater.

Thats my take. I'm glad you brought this point up! Makes for very interesting thought.

...Hope it isn't a source of more than a friendly argument, though.

Apparently the Collector's Edition of Phantom Pain revealed that the game is missing an entire fifth or so of its content which would've presumably wrapped up the game and led into the MG1/MG2 remakes, and the reason it got deleted was either Konami balking because said content involved killing child soldiers or because they forced Kojima to finish the game prematurely. Going by what it would've been about, fuck Konami.

Overall people see it as Okay. I could go for a Beyond game with the reasoning for Batman withdraw being a resurgence of the Joker in his mind.

"What are these, some old people medicines."

Bruce pops a bottle and drinks a pill down.

"Anti-Psychotics."

Joker clearly audible to Bruce but fades quickly.

Does anone consider $/Euro/monopoly money per hour when making purchases? Do you have a max $/hr? Like, if I buy a game for $40 and it claims 20 hours of content, that's $2/hr. If I buy a game for $60 and pour my life into it for 140 hours that's 43 cents/hour.

For comparison, most movies in a theater are $6-8/hr. Obviously quality hours matter; if 80 of those 140 hours are just grinding, it's not nearly as cheap. I think the most I'm willing to pay is $4/hr for a game, and that's only if I expect high quality for the vast majority of the time.

At first I thought it was a bit of a 180 until I went through the previous game where he already stole credit for Peace Walker from Granin. That game showed him having SOME standards by being against nuclear warfare and the aftermath but it doesn't contradict with the kind of evil he shows in this game which is a lot more... mundane, I guess? He's more of a weasel than a barbarian. Anyway it makes me wonder if E.E.'s "accident" was actually Huey being selfish and trying to take her down with him.

The ever-diabolical Scott Cawthon is doing…well, something ahead of his planned Halloween Whatever-It-Is for FNAF4. The “Thank You” image that’s been on his site since the day after the FNAF4 release has changed several times in the past few days: he gave large cartoonish eyes to one of the bare exoskeletons, slightly altered and moved the other bare exoskeleton, and most recently added what looks like a “Toy Golden Freddy” animatronic to the lower-left corner. With each successive alteration, the “Thank You” text has grown more transparent, and as of the “Golden Freddy” update, the background color of the image has taken on a blue hue. The image also lacks a copyright notice in its most recent form, leading to speculation that Scott’s slowly revealing a “Fredbear and Friends” image.

I’ll give him this much, Scott knows how to rile up his fanbase.

I think this video highlights for me what I don't like about Quiet's sexualization. It's not so much the fact that she's sexy or acting sexy, but there's a point when you push the fanservice so hard that it enters sexual uncanny valley territory. I'm all down for Ocelot sexytimes but watching him make those "sexy" motions was still really nauseating. It's less about who's doing it and more about being fundamentally creepy looking.

Well, I guess when you give a Japanese game designer an almost infinite amount of money and one of the prettiest ladies on the planet willing to model anything for him and he makes her creepily sexualized, that it in retrospect probably is not that shocking.

I will say that if they dialed her appearance back...there is something really endearing about the childish innocence of the character, like a full grown women who had no childhood and so with a limited degree of freedom she just wants to play in the rain with the first person that's been nice to her her whole life....it's just floppy titties add a degree of creep not needed.

I still think Quiet's birthday present is one of the cutest things a videogame character has ever done.

It's not even about her appearance. It's the presentation, the awkward camera angles and really ridiculous animations.

But place other characters, even completely non-sexualized ones like Ocelot, mini Mantis or DD and it's still just as creepy.

As a video game MGS5 is inarguably the best of the series, but a lot of the character/writing stuff is weak, especially Skullface. It's still a rad game but I can't say I like it more than 3 or Snake Eater.

The character stuff was fine, imo especially if you listen to the tapes and supplemental stuff. Its an interesting way to give the player story if they want it a la Metroid Prime.
The problem with the writing is they essentially made Snake a silent protagonist, which he's never been. A whole exposition scene went by with Skull face and he didn't say a word - which is jarring considering not just the character, but the entire series as well. And there's no real reason for it to be. Characters are still as theatrical (Skullface even referred to as pretentious in game) and they're just as out there as previous games.

The gameplay's the best the series has ever seen though. I'd really want to see what any other game in the series would be like with this same control scheme.
and not to be pedantic cos I'm not sure what you're saying but - 3 and snake eater are the same game?

I meant to say 3 and Revengeance but I was drunk.

And no I really think Skullface is the worst canon villain, even Coldman was mildly better. Snake being silent doesn't help things out.

It's a really hard game to talk about because both timelinewise and in the real world there's so much baggage surrounding it.

If you really wanted to be pedantic though you could have also pointed out that this isn't MGS5.

Gameplay is the foundation of every video game ever made. If a game looks pretty but its gameplay sucks, it's a fundamentally bad game; on the flip side, a game can be an ugly piece of shit, but good gameplay can mitigate that issue.

Putting aside the pro-Drakengard insanity, the problem people have with MGSV is that people consider it to be delivering on nothing people really want or expect from a Metal Gear Solid game. It's an excellent playing video game but the story beats are so thin on the ground and not that interesting.

Y’know, I’ve been keeping up with all of the FNAF World updates on the FNAF subreddit, and while I like the things Scott’s been saying about it—he’ll update it with free DLC, there will be hidden characters—and the new models for the characters, I really can’t help but feel as if this whole thing is a huge misdirect, even if I can’t explain why I have that feeling or what he’s misdirecting people from. Something about this just seems…off.

That's presuming most of the series must has relatively bad gameplay compared to games outside the series. If a series has a consistent A- in gameplay and a A+ in story, a game that has A+ in gameplay and B- in story could reasonably be said the worst.

Also, a game can have good gameplay without that being the main focus, simply because the only way not to be a video game would be to have no gameplay at all. Thus, you can't really sell something that's more story than gameplay as a movie when there's still plenty of game in there to keep people from just sitting back and watching, even thouhg it's both a good movie and a good game.

I'll spoiler all this just because it makes so much sense to me and probably is meant as a surprize:
1. As was said earlier, it's not Five Days at Freddy's, or even just Freddy's World. The word Night hints to things happening at night still, and the restaraunt isn't open to customers at night. Unless it's another museum like 3? Either way, it sounds like an invitation for the spooky.
2. While the characters aren't as overtly dirty and run down as their normal counterparts, did Scott really put effort into making is characters less "uncanney valley"-ish? I think he could have instead realized the only place to go after nightmare was sickingly sweet. Taking the former any further just destroys any semblance of being based on family friendly animatronics at all, while the later draws the series back to those roots.
3. Seems like every animatroinic has made an appearance, and even a sprite version of the child. But none of the guards, of any of the adult humans, even the one who's visible inside the Freddy spring suit in FNAF4. Unless you cound shadow Freddy having something red in his mouth. In any case, I think this is something that could end up relating to a secret hidden for the released game.
4. Free DLC in a game with secrets, incidentally, could naturally contain hidden things that make the game scarier, or even fragments of things that only work in combination. In fact, all the overtly frightening parts might be from complimentary downloads, with the base lacking an extensive sense of horror on its own. So FNAF World would indeed be a non-horror game, at lease until you install DLC.

On the Steam Forums for FNAF4, Scott said FNAF World will have hidden characters. Whether they’re playable or not is a whole other matter, though. Hell, aside from saying every character in the teaser image will be playable, Scott hasn’t said dick about what FNAFW will even be about.

The FNAFW teaser image is finally finished. (I love that he added “seriously” to the date.) Unless he does something insane like release FNAFW tomorrow or reveal what’s in The Box, that should be the last of any FNAF-related news until the Halloween update, so contain the calamity within your mammaries, >197558 — I see no reason for any new FNAF-related posts in this thread for a while.

I’ve tried my best to keep this from becoming an FNAF general, seeing as how one isn’t really necessary on this board given the end of the proper FNAF series.

Simple. He's the pilot. Rex, a Hind-D, a jeep... He used vehicles more efficiently than pretty much any character in the franchise.

I don't like to ban topics outright unless they cause serious disruption. (I don't consider a few dozen posts in a day to be a disruption, even as slow as +4 is.)

If posters want to discuss GamerGate, I would encourage them to create a thread specifically for GamerGate (like how /baw/ has a dedicated politics thread.) There may even be one already on another page. A dedicated thread won't make GamerGate verboten outside of it, but I think it would strike a good balance between those who want to discuss it on +4 and those who are tired of hearing about it.

On the other hand, at least he doesn't look like a stereotypical cis man with the "transgender" label slapped on in post during a time when such technology didn't exist. Contrary to what a lot of trans headcanoners seem to think, you can only do so much appearance-wise without hormones and surgery, so a trans man in a pre-1900s setting would still have periods, lack of facial hair, and need stuff like binders to hide his breasts and the like, not look like Superman or with a fanny (is there a word for this that's not as gauche as "cuntboy"?).

I think they mean the "Superman with a fanny" part specifically.

So the playable demo for Indivisible just came out, and I had a lot of fun with it, though things are too hectic to really pay attention to the artwork. Thoughts?

Redeemed themselves from Korra, I take it is what you mean, the $20 game that while short had extremely tight gameplay and a fantastic combat system that seamlessly allows you to cycle between using all four elements?

No yeah I can see how they would need to be redeemed from that, what a tragedy that was.
