Game is older than 7 years.
Game has become obsessed with weapon skins like this is Call of Dooky and pay-to-play missions like it's Counter Strike.

I get some of the changes, others appear quite malicious, like some disgruntled teen was tired of demoknights being godtier and dominating them every match.

Pic related, now it really is a useless piece of junk. I loved the quick-fix, it was ideal for hit and run harassment techniques, distracting the enemy team and helping to make those vital last minute captures when defense was being spammy.

Just my thoughts, I'm sad to the direction the game has taken, the stupid duck streak was probably the major warning sign we should all have seen coming.

>The sniper rifle thing is an example of purposely nerfing skill to cater to casual players.
Yeah, because increasing the hitbox of heads to such an immense size that you can headshot them without being scoped in is skill.

90% of these manchildren would have a collective shitfit if aim assist was completely disabled.

you know, I played again the other night and that's exactly how you'd describe the tryhards I encountered, circle jerking each other on goddamn harvest for the 800th time.

My life is better now that I've stopped playing it.

That's generally how I feel about all "competitive" FPS games, and most multiplayer FPS games in general. Getting noscope shot from 3/4 of the way across the map really makes you wonder what kind of idiots are drawn to modern multiplayer FPS games.

My favorite was in Battlefield 1942's desert storm mod, you could kill someone from a quarter of the way across the map with a shotgun, just aim it in their vague direction and empty the magazine, occasionally you'd kill them. Wow, such tremendous skill. Oddly enough shooting someone scoped in with a sniper rifle took more skill because the hitbox was so much smaller.

They finally made a Pokemon MMORPG?

16/01/26(Tue)03:58 No. 144476 ID: 2642dd

Not quite, its a Pokemon MMO made by a Brazilian team. Played it back in the old days and it was buggy to high heaven. Quite broken on the pay-to-win side as well, it was only Gen-1 Pokemon and going up against a whole team of Mewtwos was taking the piss, this created a shitstorm on the forums and the response was "if you can't beat 'em join 'em".

Needless to say I wouldn't recommend it.

As this year comes to a close, it's time to look back and judge how shitty the industry is nowadays. So what do y'all think was the most over-hyped game this year?

Pic is somewhat related but I think Star Wars: Battlefront takes the cake.

I don't get all the Fallout 4 saltiness. I agree with this guy:


16/01/24(Sun)12:28 No. 144472 ID: b2c2db


I like the way he puts it but there is a twist where because of the way the game is made you're less of a random guy who'll do some problem solving with big problems, in a crazy world, and more of the ultimate hero everything gets sucked into like a vortex and frenzy of activity where you're central to the situation

in fallout you basically save everyone but noone acts like it or notices it, everything becomes too focused around the player in fallout 4 perhaps, and revolves around them too much narrative wise

16/01/24(Sun)12:29 No. 144473 ID: b2c2db

like in fallout the big thing is that there's no big hero, just some random guy who's about as famous as a janitor doing the shit noone else wants to but that needs to be done, and they're the interesting ones
without that it feels less of a living world and more of a simulation~

I was thinking of MechWarrior on the PC.

But Armored Core always seems to have shitty controls from what I remember.

That start button looks vaguely like a PSP's. Which AC is this?

I'm probably not going to get any help here, but fuck it I'm desperate. I'm replaying the old Golden Suns in sequence because I finally picked up Dark Dawn and I haven't played these games in years. So, I was trying out this "perfect leveling" thing I read about in GS1 and I noticed the level ups aren't reflected in the status screen. It'll say "agility goes up by 4!" then on the status screen it's only increased 1 or 2 points. Can someone explain why this is or do I just have a bunk copy of the game?

Seriously, any insight would be very appreciated.

lamo 16/01/13(Wed)05:03 No. 144460 ID: 4516b2

I really wish someone could explain why the level up stats on the battle screen don't translate to the status screen out of battle... I'd love you forever. Sexually

I mean, honestly, the elusive man, gravemind, queen of blades/overmind even?

these are like the routine enemies space marines go for to stab with their combat knives or something, soon as a dreadnaught comes along it'll absolutely tear everything else to shreds, even an ultralisk won't last soon as plasma weapons are fielded, and librarians' abilities are wielded on a level almost par with kerrigan's in combat or zeratul's easily and that's just individually, what happens if they decide to work as a group or support normal space marines?

Assuming only the pictured factions with no 'come the apocalypse' alliances: Space Marines -> UNSC -> (whatever the fuck the acronym for humans is in Mass Effect) -> the space hicks
The imperium is the only galaxy spanning faction, the rest are regional powers at best. This gives them more resources to throw into a fight, and they have the biggest guns. The Halo Sniper rife is 14.5 mm, while the standard round of space marines' bolter is .75 (~19mm). Also, goddamn titans and baneblades.
Halo beats Mass Effect because of it's superior FTL. Mass Effect ships are limited to a small size by their FTL methods, but the UNSC can field much larger ships. Especially if they have the forerunner tech of the later games. Mass Effect humans have the advantage of widespread personal shield tech while in Halo it is restricted to special units, but Halo has better military vehicles.
Star Craft Human's have the smallest empire, are the least unified, and the weakest ships.

I am pretty sure the pauldrons in the fourth image alone would decemate the rest of those people.
The only really probable armour of all four of them would be the first one. It is close enough to the body to allow full movement in all types of environments and non environments.
Why is futuristic armour always so fucking massive?
I want more futuristic space cloth. Reinforced space cloth.

Oh man, I never heard this before. Few soundtracks sound better, and the game looks pretty fun too! It really is like the whole soundtrack was made much like the moon stage in ducktales.

What do you guys think of the combat in the Final Fantasy VII remake?


I voted more information because I want to see how magic works. The overall outlook seems to be positive though.

>I'm on my second playthrough, and I've recognized a lot of really cheesy lines.
>my second playthrough
The game came out 18 years ago. I'm guessing you're going to be one of those hipster fags who'll be bitching about the differences between it and the original. Why else would you start playing it now? You've had well over a decade to get a second run in.

And no shit there's some cheesy lines Sherlock, it's 18 years old, next thing you'll be telling us the graphics are outdated.

I don't have a problem with the graphics or the dialogue. Holy shit, you seem pretty upset. All I meant was that this could be SE's chance to revise the dialogue.

It's also a good chance for them to update the graphics and gameplay.

Notice how stupid that sounds. That's what you sound like.
