I love this game to bits. It's two of my favorite franchises blended together with great care. I know the very core of the warriors games is flawed and acknowledge that someone might not like it, but I just can't get enough Koei Warriors.

With that said, the first DLC is out, and I wish to report that Epona might be the worst friggin' weapon in the entire Warriors franchise, hands down, bar none. Not that it isn't powerful or anything, but it turns the game into a fucking mess. The camera goes fucking apeshit every time you try to duel someone. My eyes actually hurt.

Plus, there's a blind spot in your attacks right in front of you, it's actually slower than any other moveset in the game due to having a little hopping animation upon dash-running, and, of course, being constantly in motion when fighting is not actually practical, because duh.

Now, to be fair, it has terrific AoE and the basic strong attack is rather awesome. But on the other hands, my eyes still hurt, so fuck this horse and any fan-pleasing factor it might have.

Link didn't need a sixth weapon when most characters only have one, and he certainly didn't need THIS weapon.

Still a good game though. General discussion I guess.

While I understand your frustration, I have to admit that Nintendo is handling DLC than most other companies. It seems that with Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors and other soon-to-come games, the-big-N gives us more bang for our buck compared to asshole companies like EA or Ubisoft.

The preorder thing bothered me a bit with HW but I read somewhere that those DLC and the OoT/TP Ganon DLC will open up to others later on.

Back on topic, what do you think about characters who were and weren't included in the game ? I know Agitha is a pretty random choice and her moveset wasn't that great, but the roster did need an outsider. But Skullkid and Saria could have easily replaced Cia and Lana. (Again, Cia is pretty cool but Skullkid is pretty unbeatable, dramatically speaking)

Nintendo went from not knowing the internet to a DLC spewing machine.

They are selling "alternate costumes", which is just a model swap and that's pretty low, I wasn't interested in this game when I saw that it was a button masher, I became even less interested when I saw that they were giving out exclusive model swaps at different retailers.

I've become extraordinarily bored of video games lately. I haven't played a game that I really really "enjoyed" from start to finish. I want that feeling like the first time through Portal 1 or 2. A sense of wonder and legitimate fun. Games where the story makes you really interested or the atmosphere really sucks you into the game.

Other games I've felt captured this feeling well were the STALKER series, Metro 2033/Last Light, and the Thief series for atmosphere. To The Moon for an example of story. Bioshock 1, Portal Series, Silent Hill 1 and 2, and Deus Ex series for examples of both.

Was going to get the new Thief, but I don't trust it since I have played every installment but the newest and it seems too action-oriented.

I've been playing CS:GO and I'm currently updating BF4, I know they won't fix this feeling, but potato chips can stave off hunger, so y'know.

Any suggestions on games that are an amazing experience start to finish?

>If you're into story and atmosphere and can tolerate subpar gameplay, Planescape: Torment.

Another like this would be the Mask of the Betrayer expansion for Neverwinter Nights 2.

Fallout New Vegas is definitely one of my favorites. Great Story, World, and Gameplay, as well as an incredible mod scene. It's something I can keep coming back to whenever. 1 and 2 are great as well.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is awesome if you have a ps3 or 360.

even shitty MMO games can be still a lot of fun if they have a good player base, what you should be asking is if it has a good community. If you like these kind of games and can hook some of your pals on it then yes

I like capeshit and was looking forward to playing this on PC with my PS3 controller, just to mess around with single player and match up heroes/villains against each other, but every time I see the game mentioned "IT'S SHIT!"

Why tho? Guys don't realize how often DC release a decent game. It's not often.

Well you know it's not the best competitive fighter out there and therefore the fighting game community has rejected it. Oddly enough, most of those people will gleefully mash away at MvC3 instead. I guess people are just suckers for ridiculous combos and infinites.

true enough, but I consider everquest to be about when the transition to more mainstream stuff in a noticeable sense was beginning, whereas ultimate online would be the end point of that particular era of gaming/nerd stuff and it's dividing lines

that's been my point all along, so why are SJW's trying to make it a sex/race issue?

Eh, people want to feel represented, and most video games protagonists are straight white males, Maybe something on tumblr stirred that shit up, I dunno.
having any gay male in video games feels weird and forced, I don't imagine it's anyone's fault in particular, that's just how our society reacts to gay stuff.
Sometimes that shit does feel personal and strange, but then I realize, I really don't give that big of a fuck about the whole thing because it's a goddamn videogame.

I'm not really even sure what you're trying to get at here besides insulting everyone who's a hardcore game enthusiast. So people make games decide how they make them? No shit, that doesn't mean I want to play them if their game is shitty, and that doesn't mean the press should try to push it on me. People are fed up with the dishonesty and lack of integrity in the game journalism industry.

What's up with this new trend or buzzword/meme whatever of 60fps?

Is there really a difference? Why is this being done now?

The framerate affects how we perceive the life of the scene in a fundamental way.
It doesn't turn out to matter very much to artistic integrity in video games because the model animations tend to be so unrefined. Also the motion of the camera is usually about 1:1 with user input (moving a joystick or mouse and moving your body/head around are not the same motion even remotely; unless it's on some geometrically-calculated course, which is also not even close).
Really you would only want a faster 'refresh rate' on parts of the scene with fast motion that you want to incline the viewer to notice, and then you probably wouldn't need to do so at 60Hz.

60fps is just different than 30fps. Kids who grew up doing nothing but intake brainwashing from a screen notice the difference in the quality of the motion in the scene and find it more stimulating and therefore better. This falls in with the trend in our society of pain being sought instead of pleasure (OMG RAPPERS AND MOVIE STARS HAVE SUCH COOL PROBLEMS GOD I WISH I HAD PROBLEMS LIKE THAT THEN I WOULD BE AS COOL AS THEM).

Basically 30fps was technically convenient and produced an easy-to-watch image.

realtime:60fps for the whole frame is just retarded. It looks wrong in filmed life and it looks wrong in generated images. Shooting above 30fps should usually be for motion analysis or something.

TL;DR anyone who thinks a full scene framerate @ 60 is good is a fucking retard

14/10/16(Thu)20:03 No. 143343 ID: cd707e

holy shit dude you have no fucking clue what you're talking about AT ALL.
shut the fuck up!

Most games (every game) interpolates frames of animation for each frame of rendering (it finds a position between two frames of animation and uses that as a frame of animation), but really this style is on it's way out as motion can be more accurately described than a simple translation of vertexes of a model ('linear algebra').

I'm still disappointed Microsoft failed to convince any developers to implement that Kinect sample code, which featured outlines of other Kinect players in multiplayer games.

So many missed opportunities for horse dongery...

I think the new Super Smash Brothers is... I don't want to say terrible, because overall I think it's a well designed game, but it just feels lazy.

I mean, there is so much reused shit from Brawl and the older editions. While I'll be the first to bitch that Brawl felt more like an expansion pack to Melee, I'd almost equate this to DLC. There are so many assets reused. Old characters have very little changes, same stages, same music, etc.

The only thing that they really added that I think is neat is the bit of character customization they allow but if this game is all they have accomplished in the 7 years they had since they finished Brawl, there is a lot of disappointment found.

And from what I can tell, I'm the only one who has this opinion. Most review sites seem like they either bought the hype or sold out, and all my friends are telling me that I don't know what I'm talking about. Anyone else shares this sentiment?

I'm not sure I know exactly what you mean but I do understand the bit about reused assets.
So much potential is gone. Dark Pit Dr. Mario and Lucina have no business being on the roster. All of them should have just been alts. There are alts that should have been in the game but aren't.
Where is the Dark Samus alt? Or one for Blood Falcon? Wolf alt at least? He had a nice twist on the old moveset, why'd he get cut out? Lucas could be the same as well. A Dixie Kong alt for Diddy would probably work...
I know not everyone's most wanted character can't be in. That disappoints me most.

14/10/12(Sun)13:57 No. 143292 ID: e371d1

I am overall satisfied. Lots of things to do, smash run is well done, online works well enough (didn't test international though) and I like the idea of omega levels. Plus, even just a port of Brawl on handheld would have sold it for me. It is absolutely not a waste of money.

That said, since Bowser Jr has all the koopalings as alternative skins, there's no frigging reason for Dr. Mario, fucking Toon Link and Lucina to be separate. As above poster pointed out, Dark Samus and Dixie Kong should have been obvious. I mean, I might have accepted the absence of alt skins, but Bowser Jr just makes it inexcusable.

Dark Pit, naturally, can get bent. There are two sorts of people in the world - those who don't care about Kid Icarus, and Sakurai. Christ.
