Rocket league

Soccer (Football)/ Hockey/ Basketball with rocket boosted Cars that makes for competitive short matches. All in all, a fun game, win or lose.

Picked up Mad Max for under $10. For an open world game it's pretty fun. Its the first one I've played in a long time that actually rewards you for jumping over to otherwise inaccessible areas by occasionally putting items up there for you to find.

How do you guys feel about SoulsBorne?
The first game, in my opinion, is the best (DkS1). I'm trying to get every chan's opinions on the series. /vg/ seems conflicted, and you're my second chan I'm asking. I plan on going to the infinitychan and asking there.
Thanks boys.

I've only played and finished Demon's and Darks. Both are good...
But they fall short of what they alluded to. Grinding JRPGs with actual combat and a decent camera, strict medievalish themes.

Shown that anything other than such combat is redundant, in regard to menus.

Isn't anything approaching how it should be, combining the play of SotC, OOT, Final Fantasy XII, and the bow action of RE4. Splinter Cell with swords works.

Too confined as is to appreciate great settings, all of them seeming small.

Scale doesn't seem as large as it is because the camera is too high and far away. Needs to be looking up enough so a flat ground should appear tote neutral camera as a flat line.

Needs a low resolution and that extra performance gained put to better shading, much better lighting and more animations, should be interacting with the terrain in a multitude of ways, climbing, mounting, stepping from rock to rock as normal movement and combat done on uneven ground tripping the character.

May need to move away from monsters and instead present human characters, if silent then the setting saying who they are. Japs may be bad with dialogue pretense but are magicians when it comes to settigs if they are given enough care. Character looks and settings speak more than a few scentences.

Dark Souls 1 ranks among my favorite games of all time for its masterful attention to atmosphere and the relative trust in the player to choose their own path based on their skill level. Definitely a great 2-D to 3-D transition of Metriod-vania style games.

Dark Souls 2 was great but for very different reasons. I appreciated the focus on style and varied environments that deviate from realism, but certain changes to gameplay like the change in rolling mechanics keep me from fully enjoying it.

Dark Souls 3 was a great return to the mechanics of 1 while evolving and adding some great concepts that they've learned over the process of developing the series.

I didn't get an opportunity to play Bloodborne or Demon's, but I've fallen in love with the series based on the Dark Souls trilogy. In short, I absolutely love Soulsborne.

This is an objective list of the best games ever made,
rated in terms of entertainment, vision/actualization ratio and intrinsic poetry:
10 Final fantasy 6
9 Another world
8 Castlevania dawn of sorrow
7 Deus ex
6 The beginner’s guide
5 Shadow of the Colossus
4 Spelunky HD
3 Metal gear solid 3
2 Quake Live
1 Dark souls
In none of these games there's a defined line between good and evil, the characters and the events are blurry, just like the meaning of life, their creators followed Aristotle's teachings for the creation of masterful works of art and created grandiose games that are better than any other in the sum (THE SUM) of gameplay, visual style, story and poetry.

Subjectively too.

I love how OP tries to be subtle and then throws in Dark Souls at number one. The most casual game of all time meant to appeal to people who were too dumb to handle roguelikes or roguelites and mistake crippling players and bullet sponges as real difficulty and think dying a lot makes them hardcore.

You really wanna be hardcore? Go play fucking dwarf fortress, nethack, or any number of actually difficult games.

Aside from that it's a relatively okay list.

As a fan of philosophy I am calling you out as a coffeehouse, hipster, try-hard faggot who spouts shit that he barely understands in a vain way to sound intelligent but only comes across as a pretentious idiot that nobody bothers to point out as its so obvious.

Figured I'd start a thread for them since they're starting to be a sub-genre of action games.

I have two so far. The first is Shrouded in Sanity, available on Steam for $8 US.


Here's my rundown.

- Takes influence from Bloodborne and Castlevania in its theme and atmosphere. There's a small hint of Lovecraft in there too.
- Just as challenging, still just as fair. It's possible to complete the game without leveling up.
- Can edit the save file to make the game even more challenging. Or piss easy.
- Sanity is a gameplay mechanic that's tied into how many times you die and how much you level up. It makes the game more interesting and challenging as you improve your stats.
- Gameplay time is about 4-8 hours depending on your skill and play style. For the price, that's pretty good.

The second game I found is Salt and Sanctuary. This one lies more on the Demon's Souls edge of things. Rather than the 2.5D style of Shrouded in Sanity, it's strictly a 2D action game with platforming elements. Available on Steam, PS4, and PS Vita for $18 US.

Of the two games here, I'd recommend this one over the former. It's more polished, and it doesn't run on Game Maker's engine.


- Wide variety of items and equipment.
- Tight controls.
- Character customization, though it's not that diverse.
- Great ways to level up your character. The stat screen is remarkably diverse.
- Great bosses, each one a little more unique than the last.
- Fair challenge.
- Small easter eggs in the background. Ex: Those people on the gallows are other players who died.

Discoverability, marketing, and Steam in the modern games market 15/12/11(Fri)05:24 No. 144415 ID: d51918 [Reply]

This show is hosted by three small time game developers.

The most recent episode was way more business oriented than their program usually is, and touches on a lot of aspects of their experiences with marketing and discoverability (from the point of view of a small developer). It brought up a lot of subjects that I, as a customer, don't get to hear talked about very much, and wanted to bring the conversation topic to a wider audience.

They start off talking about personal anecdotes of times when they discovered a game, and how, and slowly begin to circle into a dissection of the current state of affairs.

I thought it was pretty interesting, and I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts and personal experiences. You can skip to 8:20 If you want to skip the opening banter and get to the questions.

Listening to it is not really necessary to contribute to this discussion, though.

I want to pose to you the same questions they posed to each other, and I'm interested in hearing your answers:

What is the last game that surprised you?

That's a funny way of spelling potato.

I meant pringles, which was a mistake. They are much less appetizing.

Yeah, there's a reason they're called potato crisps instead of potato chips.

Definitely breathes new life into the series. Cleaned up UI, new harder AI, and a slew of other things makes it perfect. Anyone else feel the same way?

Dunno. The original looks like garbage compared to this. And they didn't really change anything. This feels more like the final version

Can you still send a probe past their mothership to the far end of the map, drawing their entire fleet away with it?

I can confirm the remake is basically unplayable. Half the functions do nothing now.

Getting ready for an all-nighter with TTP after release. I Got my Baja Blast 24oz'ers on standby. Just need a great snack to accompany the Dew. Something that is not just a bag of Doritos. I would like something that will both minimize the amount residue that will gunk up the controls and give me enough energy to get through the missions.

7chan used to have one but nobody posted to it so it got nuked, as was the case with a lot of other boards.

Replaying Tomb Raider 3. After five or six years I forget a lot of details about a game, so it's fun to play again.

16/07/31(Sun)19:42 No. 144635 ID: b75f8b

I actually have been attempting to get into that game again myself. I can never seem to play past the jungle temple however.

16/08/02(Tue)02:34 No. 144636 ID: c85853

The temple ruins level in India has two deathtrap rooms that are too difficult. One drops spikes on your head. The other is underwater with two switches and strong current. They are awful.

Younger me would play over and over and eventually succeed, old me tries a half a dozen times and then skips them with a save game from Stella's (http://tombraiders.net/stella/tomb3.html). The difficulty of the rest of the game is ok.

I very much like the exploration. From area A you can see area B, which might be a pickup, or a secret, or just a part of the level that Lara hasn't been to yet. Working out how to get from A to B, and discovering what's at B, these are things I enjoy. Zipping around on the quad bike is also fun.

Currently running Lara around the rooftops of London. Not a lot of time to play games during the week.
