MegaMan X, hands down.

Resident Evil 2

Not being able to save makes it tense as fuck and is its own game, really.

Shame you don't start with the dash. X2 is so much more fun to speed run I think.

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.

>They are selling "alternate costumes", which is just a model swap and that's pretty low
So, in other words, they're the same as most DLC then.

Not that I don't look at those things and wonder who'd buy them but meh, some people have more money than common sense.

Yes, they are handling DLC the same way as everyone else and they seem to love it. They would sell some WiiUs if they started giving that crap for free, not only that but people wouldn't feel alienated for buying the game and not getting the whole deal.

Also, messing with Mario Kart 8's select screen seems like a cry for money, I just hope the new tracks are good.

Why didn't Nintendo make a 3D version of the original Donkey Kong Country, or even Donkey Kong Country 2? Pic related would have worked. Hell, I'd accept a HD release of either game. It worked for Wind Waker, so why not DKC?

Instead Nintendo made the same mistake it did with Starfox Adventures and the New Super Mario Bros. series: making a great game that doesn't live up to its predecessor. These games should have been great stand-alone titles, because they are great, but they're also pale shadows of DKC, Star Fox, and Mario. So I hate them.

So, Final Fantasy Thirteen Three.
I'll be arsed if I know what the story's about, but the battle system has me a bit interested. The best way I can describe it is like an amalgam of FF12's 'encounters from map' with a dash of Valkryie Profile/Xenosaga 'abilities mapped to face buttons', but more action-RPG. You have different Schemata (jobs, but as this is FFXIII they have to be smug and call it something exotic) which determine what actions you can do at any one time, and you can switch between them on the fly.

I heard the 3 13s are coming to PC. If that's true i'll be applying nude mods.
13-2 wasn't really playable on PS3, not enough performance.

I hear 13-3 has towns. Main attraction of FFfor me. Just going somewhere and staying in an inn. I'm sure that's why all play RPGs. To see the world.

I take it the combat is swapping from heal mode to build up chain mode to exploit chain mode, to withstand attack mode, repeat. One character shoud free up processing time enough to spend it on awsomeness.

I didn't go far into XIII 2 and skipped all the cutscenes, same bar the first few for XIII, I got near the end for XIII or maybe I finished it and skipped the end cutscene. Anyway it's all lame. Too dumb for kids.

The environment isn't, it's beautiful. Pity it's attached to bad storytelling and reappropriation shit that is a constant from Japan.

Select attack is a bad system. A myriad of abilities to execute instantaenously is what should be the playstyle. No seperation from battle and world. Enemies using the terraon, climbing over things so you do too. Enemies could even lead you. Big ones teaching you to navigate the terrain in pursuing it, picking you up if you get stuck and moving you where you should have gone like a joke. Enemies with personality, and scars.

Japs really need to get over their killing bunnies thing. Grow some empathy.

14/10/21(Tue)12:59 No. 143398 ID: 5d741c

I liked The Spirits Within when it came out.

Advent Children was a cash in. It's fan fiction as I see it. What happens when people try to take ownership, they get disconnected and they just don't get it.

FF7 was ok, I liked it more before I played it. 8 was wonderful bar some backstory explanation shit (orphanage).

I might just need to watch it again. 7 was precious to me and it had an ending so it going on or retold couldn't be good.

Could use a remake perhaps. Devs could make all the assets snd just do what seemed right. Stop fucking trying to please others. Just tell a story as it comes.

Hiring students is the explanation for shit games.

ID should be developing from scratch, and their own scratch.

I don't think there has ever been or will ever be a student who mattered.

Rage is getting close to what I want, what always should of been standard, an entirely unique landscape of no repetition.

Adding reactions to interations, textures and geometry morphing from actions seems simple too. Not simple perhaps, but clear. Chain reactions.

It would be different to have a space station to exore when a stray shot blew a hole that ripped a section away along with pulling and twisting pipes, grime, you into the surface.

Ground changing from stress, chipping for water sources.

IE: You decide how to progress and you ALWAYS have to work with what is there or what should be there. So you fuck up and you are about to die that is what is and you have to fix that. That always there. So be careful.

What video game character has gotten the biggest emotional reaction out of you? For me it's that thing from Containment Breach. It scared me shitless.

I wasn't. That's pretty much what the world sings: "You're going to die" and it's as horrible as it is magical. It's a test. Only the hero dies. The rest wait to be saved.

14/10/21(Tue)10:45 No. 143390 ID: 5d741c

Not quite, all may die too, only the hero goes forward when death advances though.

It just is that way. In compensense I think you get to see what you go forward for or feel it, or feel their hope.

14/10/21(Tue)10:57 No. 143391 ID: 5d741c

When a character holds the hurt, yeah that's time to get your shit together.
When the pain isn't vented out. When you try to understand why, to help. Seems a relief in the world, an acnowlegment and a trust afterward. Then a deadly serious preperation, where the world gives you what it has and you have to proove yourself and confront their attacker who too needs help. Horror all round. Someone has to die and at the end it's you. But not by you. And then there's the hope or the temptation that is a temptation too.

Giving up is the big nono. Stopping, resting, giving away duty. That's betrayal and creates enemies. Oppression.

hl2 and portal now officially running natively on the nvidia shield


14/10/21(Tue)10:21 No. 143387 ID: 5d741c

Nice. Fuck HL2 though.

Shield Tablet is out now. But it's a shit design. Speakers 9" screen.
Just needs to be a screen. Say a 6" 1280x1024 screen with sticks on the side and buttons under the fingers. Or HMD & controller with buttons under fingers.

Should be. Isn't.

K1 in the tablet if used right is enough for 360 ports, but not easy ports, because the K1 isnt better in every way to 360's specs. And it's not like console devs want to make money by doing something right. Money just makes things shit.

Good the shield is getting something, Nvidia should be putting more effort in getting games onto it but like the Vita it's far supersceeded now.

The Shield tablet is the Shield 2.

For handhelds I think the standard res should be 100x100. Games could be supersampled 4x to make that work until post process aa can fix visuals to the same quality as ssaa.

How do you all feel about Super Mario Bros 2 being a direct rip off of some Japanese game called Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic?

Miyamoto Shigeru was very involved in the development of Yume Koujou: Doki Doki Panic, it's just they decided to release it internationally as part of the Super Mario Bros series, but they changed and adapted things to make it a Super Mario game.

14/10/21(Tue)09:58 No. 143386 ID: 5d741c

Pretty sure everything Japanese is a rip off of something else.

Monster hunter freedon unite has a rip off of Paul Ruskays score for Homeworld playing in the background for the dessert area.

Bad when it's intentional. Worse when it pretends to be original and source. Ok if it's done unconciously, just using their experiences as a base to bhild from or a refrence to live up to.

I'm sure this is probably going to bring in bad new but.
So I just bought an acer 8735g with an nvidiagt240m and a intel 2 dual core processor, should I be worried about game play? I have a linksys e1200 router that clocks in at 5.6 Mbps down and 1.2 Mbps up. At 21-35 ping after 6 tests (with an outlier of 85 ping) I will be resetting the only other home computer so I can clear up some viruses after the laptop comes in.

I'm also planning on playing the new smash game for 3ds and playing project m on the smash boards.

How boned am I?

No need to bump after an hour, this is not niggertits.

What's the frequency on your processor? What's your RAM, what's the vram on your mobile graphics chip...oh wait it's a laptop, don't play on a laptop you'll fry it.

You can't upgrade a laptop, idjut

14/10/21(Tue)09:53 No. 143385 ID: 5d741c

What the fuck did you do that for?

Here's how it is with gpus:

The second number is what matters. It needs to be an 8. The second number indicates the performance of the card, about half of the next number up.

eg a gtx 870 is probably about half the performance of a gtx 880.

Nvidia rebrands like a graphics chip designer. The gtx 880m is a gtx 680m. No die shrink. Nothing.

rjtech.com seem an ok American supplier of clevo laptops.

If you're on the move a laptop is too big and heavy in my experience. Shame the shield tablet isn't a phone or it would be good value.

The GTX240 might be ok if you install microxp. Use windowblinds if you need a pretty UI. With some tweaking could play most 2007 and prior games with no aa at 640x480.

Do you guys like Bayonetta? Personally it was my favorite game this past generation, sadly I have a PS3 so I got the subpar port, but it still managed to be my favorite game. Excited as fuck for the sequel.

Never played it but I'm glad they decided to bundle the original game with the Bayonetta 2, otherwise I probably wouldn't even be interested.
