>Plus shitty proprietary sony memory cards are cancer.
We can purchase a PSVSD to MicroSD adapter for $11


Nevermind, it turns out it was just because there were planets infested with prethoryn scourges that I had to bomb first. This game is fun but the "tutorial" leaves out a lot of stuff.


They do? I've got a lot of games but I figured that it must not be worth a whole lot since everything is available on other systems.

I'm enjoying this a lot.


Alright so I've put 10 hours into this game and I really enjoyed every minute of it. The only problem I'm having is the intense urge of periodically starting over again since you get better at logistics and organizing the machinery around the resources and every time I look at a convoluted tangled mass of belt conveyors I feel like going to another planet and resetting the whole thing but some of the research you have to do takes a long time so I'm holding onto my current mess.

I really liked the idea of Factorio but the theme and general atmosphere of that game never really did anything for me, DSP on the other hand has that optimistic sci-fi feel to it and the idea you can build a Dyson sphere as your ultimate industrial triumph is awesome. Really curious to know what else the developers are going to implement.

In this thread, ask other wizards for game recommendations.

I'm starting a new thread to look for wizards who played lots of city building games. I'm looking to get immersed in one of those games and I mean I want to completely forget this world exists. I don't have a preference for theme, though I would prefer not to play anything medieval. However if you played ton of these games and the one you think it's the best happens to be medieval themed I don't mind, let me know. Thanks in advance.


Looking for action rpgs on switch like trials of mana. No turn based please


Neo The World Ends With You


Ys (no idea which are available on switch)


Origins which is pretty good and VIII and IX which I haven't played but I hear they're pretty stinky


Origins is great
I am playing VIII right now and it's clearly not as good as the older single character stuff. I had already dropped VII because of all the pointless chitchat and interruptions from actual gameplay. I skip that boring crap almost all the time, but it's annoying nonetheless. I want Ys, not a Trails of whatever game with a bazillion words script.
Might buy IX on sale one day to play five hours and never touch it again lol

What games define you? What are the games that left an impact on you, that you'll never forget? It honestly didn't take me long to figure it out for myself. An honorable mention and 10th would be MGSV for me as well.

Nice selection. I never played Ultima Online, and I know I missed on something magical.

Thanks. Yeah I began playing UO right before the Renaissance expansion and spent many years doing pretty much nothing else with my life but playing that game. It's hard to describe how amazing it was to be able to play games with other people using the internet. The concept was mind blowing. It basically ruined every other MMO for me and as a result I lost everything that came afterwards, WOW specifically. Good times, I even convinced a couple of kids in my school to try it and they also became very active players. I have 2 kind of funny UO stories, I'll write it down just in case you're interested.

It was 2001 and I had just convinced two of my classmates to try UO after playing by myself for a month or so. They soon became hooked themselves and one of them (let's call him Cosmo) got so addicted his mother forbade him to play games altogether. Cosmo turned out to be quite the cunning, scheming kid and would take none of it, which is weird because at school he was an extremely reserved, yes-man individual and never showed any social prowess whatsoever.

Cosmo's plan to continue to play UO with us during weekdays was rather convoluted. There was no way he could bypass his tiger mom at a home with a single computer (a common thing for middle class back in those days, one computer per household) so he found an Internet café a few stations away from his house and convinced the owner there to install UO in a couple of computers. He did this by promising the guy he would bring a couple of friends with him to play there everyday. The couple of friends he was talking about of course was myself and the other kid, let's call him George. Keep in mind we were like 12 at the time and Cosmo was this scrawny Chinese kid I never saw talking to anyone else but me or George. That was a pattern during my school days where I always happened to befriend the Asian kids. Turned out they were usually the ones that shared with me a good grasp on mathematics and a hatred for retarded ball games and P.E in general. In fact the reason we even began to talk to each other was because of some math olympiad crap they advertised in our school at one point. George's parents were from India and his mom is part of the second story but I digress.

Anyway, soon we were going after school to the internet place every other day to play Ultima Online, and we continued to dPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


Man, UO really was a different breed.
Carebear WoW paled in comparison with ruthlessness and ingenuity you'd have in world of UO.
Since I'm from Eastern Europe, local, pirated shards were extremely popular here.
Craziest story I heard is how a friend of my friend hacked another player's account or somehow tricked him into giving his house key and then just cleaned out everything.
The guy who's house got robbed got pretty fucking upset and tried to find the guy who did it IRL. He was an amateur boxer or something and literally wanted to beat him up.
There were also "strelkas" aka organized fights between different nationalities that took place both IRL during the early 2000s and in UO in form of guild wars.
It was wild and I recall how the peak of passion I experienced getting PKed and the wild fun never compared to any other game.
I guess it just feels that much more exciting when there are real items at stake that you can lose at any time.
We should bring back GPT agents and fill them in some UO shard and just enjoy it all over again.


is battle network that good? It seems like a turn-based rpg with some realtime movement on a grid. Switch has been selling it recently but as soon as they kept playing up the music and art that was available with it I got turned off. I'm not using my Switch like a PC or music player.

Thread for games you managed to finish and your thoughts on it.
125 posts and 77 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


ive played both d1 and d2 and i also think d1 was the better experience, it was concentrated, atmospheric and immersive


d1 was too cartoony and childish for me, the cardboard graphics make the "grim" parts seem comical
D2 has way better gameplay and a cooler looking diablo himself


i like d2 more as well, but i had a lot more experience with the community when i played it. knew kids from school who played it, played ladder with randoms a lot online, read forums for it, etc.


I think Diablo is more atmospheric and "scary" than 2, but 2 is infinitely more replayable, on the first playthrough yeah I prefer 1, but if I had to pick one to play for long periods of time I'd pick 2.

Finished the first Monster Hunter for ps2, the offline part of the game that is since the online is long dead.
It's a good despite what people say, of course it's different from later games but the foundation is there, there are some issues, like every wyvern having basically the same moveset, but they different enough I guess, people don't like the controls but I didn't think they're so bad once you get the hang of it. There's a lot of grinding, I guess people are put off by that, but it's also a given in these games. I don't know, I liked it. I think the people who shit on it the most haven't really tried it

what is the best FF game for someone who never played a FF game of his life?
To my perspective of an unplayer, I would say the story is meh, the combat are too boring and the worldbuilding is average. the objects/magic are average,etc…yadayada
4 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


My favorites are V and VI. XII probably, if you don't like the turn based combat, or the remake of VII.
Still with these games one of the highlights is always the plot, so if you don't like that I wouldn't recommend you play any of them


V has a job system, right? that would be the one I would be most tempted to play, but I have no intention to endure hours of interruptions and dialogue, and i can't stand that "spam attack button to win" loop where you have lots of systems and options that are mostly useless


I'm a pretty huge Final Fantasy fan, have been my entire life. But I tapped out of the series after X and entries I-III I consider too aged. I'll just talk about IV to X, which to be fair, are basically the only ones anyone talks about.

The games are so old now that all of them will fall flat on the graphical front, and unless you're between the ages of 12-18 (target audience), you won't find it -that- engaging.

In terms of gameplay, I'd go


>X (Custom sphere grid is more fun)
>IX (too fucking slow, loses points for that)
>VIII (Extremely broken)

In terms of the aesthetic, environment, music and story, this one is a bit tougher, but I'd go


Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


Best combat system in the series, but the story is absolute hot trash. But it's hot trash in an enjoyable way that borders on schlock, it's extremely hammy, it's like a DM going off the rails and throwing everything in, going "fuck it". It's not meant to be deep or taken seriously.

>and i can't stand that "spam attack button to win" loop where you have lots of systems and options that are mostly useless

There's a few useless jobs, like Chemist or Geomancer, but there's no OP job that becomes "spam X to win". At parts of the game certain classes have certain advantages, but nothing too ridiculous. You need to balance your party evenly and develop multiple classes with each, because you have return to the "freelancer" for the endgame and utilize all the jobs you've mastered.

It's not a perfect system, but it works extremely well if it's your first playthrough and don't know all the bells and whistles.


The job system sucked, it was like some sandbox game. I didn't know what to level, what composition to use, when to return to mime/freelancer etc. Often the bosses were trivial by switching to 4 black mages.

I want to share one of the best games I've ever played in my life, not only because of its aesthetics, but also because of its playability and the great content it offers, not only that, apart from being very accessible despite having low graphics (not to say shit) Runescape old school is one of those games that are little known, this game contains millions of stories, of Venezuelans earning a living to be able to eat selling runescape gold, from people who repeat the same action for 3 months in a row to be able to get 99 in a skill, and even people who pay in-game money so they can have a girlfriend. Runescape is huge and you don't stop finding new things every day, it's full of content and besides it's FREE… Up to a certain point since you can buy a membership and play the game 100%, since the free game is limited to certain things and certain sectors, but don't worry you can farm money from the game and buy a bond, which gives you 14 days of free membership, and if you know how to take advantage of them you will never have to spend real money to buy the membership. It's crazy what this game can be and I invite you to play it for free on steam, android, and iso. I don't know what my fellow virgins expect to be able to play this fantastic game

dude stop crashing me!!!


i wanna play runescape again but i gave away my entire bank so i have no idea how to get a bond again. ive been mining runite in free to play and only made like 2m.


Here's your RunEscape, bro


Yeah, and? What's funny is I got a dragon med helm from the Odd-One-Out mystery box.

You losers could play this little direct RS clone that I linked. It has no players so you can grind your lives away into nothingness without competition.


is this that runescape classic-esque game that someone was making a few years ago?

>I'm deluded


Tears of the Kingdom is based. Haven't been this immersed in a game since Red Dead Redemption 2.


"Based" how? How does it challenge the narrative? What does it do despite pressure to do the opposite? If anything it panders to general consensus.

How young are you that you don't even know what "based" means and just use it as a general "good"? Probably 17, and West-European.

>i'm afraid people will make fun of me
Very unhealthy. There's no reason to expect anyone will make fun of you, and even if some vapid schizonigger does, there's even less of a reason to care. Mobile gaming is a huge industry and everyone your age probably does it or has done it at some point. Stop inventing stigmas in your mind and then being ashamed to do innocent things based on imaginary reactions from faceless strangers. You're not infringing on anyone's peace by tapping on your phone be it in a game or your picture gallery.


Used to play a bunch of chink gachas but got sick of them. East asian grinding + microtransaction + increasing hardware demand turned me away. The only one with good gameplay I played is Arknights, the rest are turn based auto battler trash. I also played Genshin on PC which has fun exploration but it'll probably look like shit on the phone. I heard succubi Frontline 2 will be an XCOM clone. Looks fun.


mobile games are trash you have to be a foid to even try them


Only good gacha and mobile game in general that I played was The Alchemist Code. Tactical RPG.


my phone's lcd and battery have a limited lifespan. i only use it for reading at low brightness at night primarily

Wizzies who play or played a lot of MOBAs I summon.

In my gaming career I always kind of dodged them but lately they've been a good way to sink some time in to just manage to get at the end of the day and go to sleep instead of pressing F5 on imageboards or rotting the brain away watching youtube videos.

Right now I play related picture and playing ranked. I pretty much lose every game but I dont really care. I was just wondering whatever it will be always like this or maybe if I keep playing I will just naturally get better since I don't care about reading online on how to improve.

I peaked Diamond 1 99lp a few weeks ago (though I dropped a bit and I'm currently D3). To answer your question: You will not improve much at all if you keep playing a lot of games without thinking. And you will not improve much at all if you never read up resources online on how the game works.

Trust me, I was stuck in Gold and Plat for the past 3 seasons, if you're not tryharding improvement, you will not get anywhere. It's impossible. If you're playing for fun, that's fine, but if you want to actually get good, you need to start reading up online and taking notes on how the game objectively works and what the best plays are. You need to understand the "theory" behind how a League game works. Then, you need to start VOD reviewing every one of your games, listing all of the differences between you and the theoretical perfect performance, and consciously trying to fix bad habits as you play. Playing a lot of games might improve your mechanics, but it won't fix anything else. It's a waste of time.


it's called assfaggots for a reason


By the way, just so you know, I would not recommend playing this game at all. My goal for this season was to get D4 by tryharding and then quit, but I got it within a month and a half of tryharding and I thought that Master tier would be doable… I regret it. This game is fucking horrible to play. I've wasted 800 games, about 400 hours of my life, in the past 4 months on this shit. And I am not having fun. Becoming better is slightly fulfilling and makes me happy, but that's about it. The game is not worth it, and if my mind wasn't forcibly preventing me from quitting until I reach my goal, I'd drop it immediately and go back to single player games. They're much more fulfilling and make me much more happy.

If you're new, quit as soon as you can.

Update: Master tier. Now I can finally quit, and I can confidently say, fuck League of Legends. This game sucks.


LOL gave me afib
