Dark Souls-esque Game Discussion/Recommendations 16/09/11(Sun)02:57 No. 144681 ID: ca3ceb [Reply]

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.

Trailer:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDJCly9fXrs

Here's my rundown.

Pros:
- 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.

Trailer:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_054dUJzCE

Pros:
- 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.
http://insertcredit.com/2015/11/19/the-insert-credit-show-episode-114-indie-mega-truth/

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?

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?

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.

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.

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.

Who else thinks that there should be a game about Hillary Clinton where you lie your way out of everything.

It could even be a telltale game and you could just type the answers because the endings are always the same anyway

Google + magic search terms works so damn well to solve most technical issues that potential employers actually mark techs down if they suggest that during interviews.

It's kind of sad how doing something that's so effective at solving problems quickly gets held against you because "anybody can do that."

started by playing 3 Ultimate with two buddies; an FU vet and a noob
fell in love with 4 Ultimate and clocked in 480 hours online and with that noob friend
made a character in FU2
played a few ranks in P3RDHD waiting for Gen to hit 'murrica
working my way through village 4 on Gen now, but I only feel like doing a couple hunts at a time. I couldn't even figure out an armor I really wanted until Narg, and I'm still not too keen on grinding for it. When does it come up in multiplayer? I might just get up to that rank and farm online.

Is it wrong that I want this franchise to do well in the US just so it can piss off the same kind of loud ignorant pastors in the Bible Belt that said Pokemon was the devil? Depending on how they choose to define "youkai" they'd have a field day ranting about demons influencing children.

The actual game is a critter collection RPG. Its biggest weakness is that it isn't Pokemon, which everyone will inevitably compare it to. "Not being Pokemon" is also its biggest strength, if you're tired of the same formula and want to try something slightly different.

Pretty cool parents, besides animu games being addictive, they also promote acting, as in *become flustered "waaaaaaasa!" Fall over.

No. No animu for kids. Give kids awesome adventure cartoons or movies. Adult action movies, everything amesome that doesn't have sex scenes. Eg: Under the Skin in one of the best movies ever made but it is for adults. Cutthroat Island on the otherhand is also but not exclucively.

There are heaps of quality British and American kids movies that are so good watching them having seening anything different may feel like a tresspass. Like Sega they are the standard, everything else is trying to subvert that.

For the Japs, tough. They need to try hard to make something special, not something that works. Should be unsure about it not all of it meshing with the animu market that has been created.

They're trying to destroy the world, in disgust it is abandoned, and they tout that as proof.

Animu scum are not really Japs, and the same is present in most countries, it's greed and a lack of effort. Considering how well thjgs sell as success instead of how beautiful they are. Should be enough effort at leastthat they don't want to touch it for fear of ruinig it. Erasing anything somewhat treason, you add it must be perfect.

Church is the wrong source in deciding right from wrong, should be able to look and see if it was made complex, if what is within it is wonderful enough to feel so. Should be undeniable to all.

Played Yo Gi Not Yogi Bear on a New 3DS demo unit enough to get out of the house at the start. 3D works nuch better, but software forthe 3DS could have the same effect, think that had a camera too. Would be great if good enough to track eyes.
