Kinda Eh IMHO

Blue is the warmest color inspired character design told you where things were going as soon as Chloe was introduced and confirmed for lesbians. Ending being save the town or save the one person whom you've been saving the entire game(and who's deaths are the thing fucking shit up) I guess it was supposed to mean something because it would mean letting her die. I don't know where they were going with that

And such a set plot and mechanic, I really don't see how they could go into a second game without giving away the plot. Unless its totally unconnected and has a new mechanic.

Strikes me a lot like SOMA interesting idea but its still missing a few parts to tie it all together.


Of all the cinematic attempt games this year I feel Until Dawn is still the strongest.

Sam not in the game, barely a mention and her possession not being a core reason Lara embarks on more of these expeditions. Regardless of Rhianna Pratchett original intent was a developing relationship becoming further romantic over the course of the games the possession of a friend by an elder god alone should be a big reason searching out other sites and hunting for a cure.

But it seems that is going to be nixed from what has been going around. Damn shame rather wanted to see something of that nature instead of the super speed romance that they dump into games most the time.

Setup seems like its going to lead to a rather flaccid part 3 unless DLC fills in some gaps.

My god yes, furthermore the back buttons replaced my actual buttons within a half hour of using it, never before has anything felt so sleek and fun.

I have two fingers on my left hand that are reconstructed and get sore fast when I'm playing games and with the back buttons not only are they not uncomfortable, I can actually press buttons with them and not curl up into a ball with pain because you can adjust sensitivity so I turned it all the way up on the left side, I honestly can't imagine going back.

I was honestly embarrassed that I was willing to pay so much but with how great it feels and given what a roaring success this has been I wouldn't be surprised if a slightly less custom version becomes the standard at a greatly reduced cost. This is the gold standard all controllers should aspire to.

I don't think the price will. Oculus is first-to-market with such a product, and it will likely see a price drop within a year (especially if the other companies get theirs out in 2016). They're owned by Facebook, to boot, who can prop them up if it looks like a long-term strategy will pay off.

Well the PS2 was underpowered by comparison, and the Dreamcast and Gamecube didn't have as much third party support.

The 7th Gen had essentially the same issues, the PS4 was hard to work with and the Wii was a nightmare.

how do the story and companions stack up.

Thinking about that a bit as one waits for E3 and some announcement for the next Dragon Age, likely the final one since Trespasser setup a sequel and that incoming even will be big and end the Inquisition storyline. And knowing EA Bioware won't be around after the next ones in both Mass Effect and Dragon Age.

That was the best part of Bioware is the majority of well written companions or at least intresting ones. Them being gone will leave it to Obsidian and whatever forms from the Bioware ashes.

I'm currently playing pic related as my first Metroidvania. I grew up with Classicvania and had played every one of those, and was told this was a great place to start the newer ones, since it has Classicvania elements in it or something.

I'd played all of the Metroid titles as well and it's very easy to see the resemblance. I like how the RPG elements aren't overbearing beyond basic level ups, equipment and stat increases. I also like the card system, which gives you a bunch of abilities but is remarkably easy to use and understand. One thing I absolutely do not like though is the map. Unlike every Metroid game that has a map, there's no marker that indicates what kind of obstacle obstructs a path that you need a specific upgrade to get through. I apparently am supposed to remember which paths I haven't explored, yet can currently get to.

So I played the (2013) Syndicate last night. From begging to end. Wow. I usually don't hate the games I play, but damn.
That story line was some contrived, idiotic, lazy, confusing, Deus Ex: Human Revolution wannabe bullshit that I've had the misfortune to play though. Lily Drawl...I dislike her VERY much due to bullshit writing.
I didn't have any real problems with anything else. The beginning of the boss fights wear thin. The Gauss rifle is fully automatic with lock-on homing bullets and the flamethrower where fun to use.
Agent Jules Merit was an ok murder hobo till he became the last boss. The info you find laying around is presented in a boring way. I didn't want to read any of it and I found a lot.
Oh and the person you play as, Klio, could be a fucking dolphin robot for all we know. We get ONE shot of him near the end of the game. He also talks like Chrono from Chrono Trigger. The end of the game sucks too.

Bottom line, the game is ok except for the story and characters. If I ever start an LP this will the first game I play. This game actually made me mad.

So! Scott Cawthon released his Five Nights at Freddy’s RPG, FNAF World, late last week. Fans of the franchise had a…mixed reaction. A day after its surprise release, Scott posted a message on Steam that said he realized he’d released the game too early, as it lacked features commonly found in RPGs (such as stat screens and descriptions of attacks, items, et cetera) and replaced the teased 3D overworld with a 2D one. Fans were understanding, and they'd hoped that Scott would continue updating the game—which he promised to do—so it would become a better game.

Earlier today, Scott announced that he’d pulled FNAF World from Steam. and he will authorize refunds to anyone who bought the game no matter how long they’ve played it. (Steam will have to approve that, of course.) He plans to continue polishing the game, too. And when the “polished” version is ready, Scott will re-release FNAF World—only this time, he’ll release it on GameJolt, where the full version of the game will replace the original demo and “always be free”.

Mad motherfuckin’ respect to Cawthon for owning his mistakes in the best possible way.

Though, much as I hate to give points to nerds, neither of those are a thing per se. The minigame is head pettting, it's just Pokemon Aimee. It's anime garbo and I want it out of my FE though.

As for brainwashing, that doesn't happen either. Instead, you "merely" secretly drug someone and bluuuurgh

In context she specifically asked for the main character to help her with that particular problem (that she faints around girls which is admittedly not something you want in a battle), and she doesn't get with you unless you actively pursue the S link. It's still a shitty situation all around, and drugging people against their consent is skeevy even if it gets what they asked you for done, but for people to continue referring to it as "gay conversion therapy" is disingenuous.

That has more to do with the idea of going through with that relationship path seeming like a (fantastical) form of “conversion therapy”. Given how conversion therapy is controversial at best in the United States, Nintendo’s choice to shy away from anything that could be seen as supportive of the practice—and squash a potential backlash from LGBT customers—makes perfect sense.

There would have been more, plans were for a development across all three games. But they came out past march saying Lara would be a Lone Wolf forever. Which basically brings us back around to this being Last Gen Lara again. So why should I care.

The industry wasn't great to begin with and, with each passing decade, it became only worse.
Then there is the fact that humans tend to become at the very least cautions and, usually, jaded and cynical after their optimism and hopes are crushed time and time again, after they are cynically deceived time and time again.
Add these two together and you'll get the reason why many of vocal ones are very critical of newer games and very skeptical in general. What I don't understand is how you are just now learning this.

As for your accusations, I've played Trine 1 & 2 and Treasure Adventure Game recently. Even though I'm not into platformers normally, I liked them all (although Trine 2 was a mixed bag and I find the first game better).
Also note that I only mentioned relatively recent releases because I assume you don't care all that much about older games, which comprise the majority of what I've been playing for the last 5-10 years.
Why didn't I try to talk about those three? First, they are pretty old news in this as of late rapidly changing world. Second, I don't think I have anything original to say about them.

Completely forgot about Shadowrun: Hong Kong. Mixed feelings with this one as well: while their world-building and characters are very good, I liked changes to gameplay even less than what they did in Director's Cut (which is no surprise, seeing as they were building upon it and told they would well in advance). Also their storytelling didn't provide nearly enough options for casters even for an average campaign, let alone one so obviously deeply involved in magics like SRHK is. It is like they suffer partial amnesia from campaign to campaign: every time some new bunch of archetypes find themselves getting a short stick.
But wait, that's me bitching about a video game, you don't want it.

Excellent news, I'll try to see what I can do with it.
Though MAME apparently works entirely differently than I thought it did, in that it has a prebuilt list of games rather than having you choose a machine architesture and then select an arbitrary ROM from the directory. All that means is that I can't easily load arbitrary hex files to see what happens.

Since that's not at all the actual point of the system, there's little reason for that to change, so it's likely that the more practical option for me is to stick with virtual machiens designed from scratch for such purposes.

One reason for MAME’s move to open source had to do with museums: they could have used MAME to help preserve and display older arcade games, but MAME’s old license prevented any “commercial” use of MAME (museums do take in money, after all). Now they’re free to use MAME without any such restrictions in place.

Ah First levels.

For me its Dead Space 3 "First Level". Finally using those boosters and oxygen upgrades to their fullest. Being a Space Engineer again reviving old wrecks to investigate a centuries old prior outbreak. Then we go down to to Hoth. Fucking Hoth with some of the exploration blocked off by Co-op bullshit.

Plenty of times I've dreaded a game to actually get into the final act. Because I was enjoying myself and I didn't want to trigger some arbitrary timer or lock myself off from further exploration. This was one of the first times I'd dreaded the game starting.

Given that Microsoft wants to unite all its platforms, and PC games can already work cross-platform with Sony, it seems a safer move to be more lenient on the console side than to attempt putting a tighter hold on what PC games can do. Plus it doens't technically require any direct interaction with Sony: If both consoles allow for connection to private servers developed by the game dev companies themselves, then said servers can act as a bridge between those consoles.

Shantae.png

Saw the Shantae and the Pirate's Curse getting played by SBFP and thought it looked pretty great, so I thought I'd try getting into the series starting with the first one on GBC. Aaaand it's not great. Kinda shitty in fact. Lots of shitty old game design relics and faux pas. Like blind faith jumps into enemy pits and enemies spawning right on top of you resulting in unavoidable hits (and BOY is there a lot of that). And the walk speed is. So. Fucking. Sloooooooow. Impressed with the graphics and amount of systems, though. Certainly an ambitious title for its time and platform, but also a massively flawed one.

As rookie Ghostbusters, players can level up their characters’ gear and abilities by tackling objectives, defeating ghastly creatures and discovering hidden collectibles in Manhattan’s most haunted haunts.

Welp, I caved and bought a Shantae game, the two Momodora games, and Sayanora Umihara Kawase.

Umihara Kawase is the only series out of those I've actually played before, but Momodora looks fun and I've heard good things about Shantae.

I guess $30 for four games isn't too bad.

Also for the record, fuck the artwork for the Umihara games. It's a fun platforming series with good tether mechanics, but all the artwork for it makes it look like a damn hentai game. It really doesn't reflect the game itself at all.

I feel like they're shooting themselves in the foot by only having one free character at a time. It really doesn't let the player try out different stuff and get a good feel for the kind of content they'd be putting down money for.

Overwatch was fun. Wish I got into the beta when it first started. Seems like a good and healthy replacement for Splatoo, since that game is starting to become a chore outside of private matches.

Never saw anyone do good with Hanzo. Seemed genuinely weak compared to the other defense characters.

Hanzo's gotta be used right. He's essentially a different flavor of Sniper.
One match where we were defending, I had the entire enemy team grouped into one little alcove as Bastion with supressive fire, and this Hanzo that I didn't even know was on our team ran up and launched his Ultimate at the wall they were hiding behind, got 5 or 6 kills. I was impressed.

that really should have been the marketing first but really there are way too many of that crap for it to be anything but somewhat successful

Amiibo have the advantage of adding one dedicated platform support (while not very broad and kinda unclear as to what games are good with them) Also the stands are nice and people want the figures.

Lego Dimensions is freaking Lego so that's its own advantage.

Skylanders has a massive history to it going in and clearly the one that people go to.

Disney putting out that Marvel Combat thing with Hulk Fists and Iron Man blasters and Ultron Drones likley didn't help. Just going to add to the confusion of what is working with what. As much as they are on the ball with Films they need better people in their marketing and license department.

It was never going to be a massive hit going as a game first. Collectable figures I think the Darkwing Mabel battle showed how much some would throw into that just wanting figures.
