On ebay you can buy digital games from a russian guy for a discounted price and he will give an account where to download the game

i don't know the legality of this. i bought a digital copy of red dead redemption 2 for 6 dollars(when it's like 60 on the xbox site)

It's exactly this. I have a regular PS4. It's either 400 or 500gb or around that. If I download CoD, Destiny or any other bloated shit then I have to delete almost everything off my PlayStation. They know that people who play with friends obviously want to try and keep as many games on the console as possible because if your mates decide to all play rainbow 6 one day then you don't want to be the one guy who will have to delete some games and sit for a couple of hours while it downloads. So people buy big hard drives just to be able to play a few different games. It's fucking absurd but obviously the companies don't care whatsoever.

Thoughts on this remake? I've been having a blast with it and it brings me a ton of nostalgia too. Just wondering if any of you guys have played it but I think I'm gonna go for 100% completion too. What were your opinions on this series and which one was your favorite?
All and all it's been good so far the remake that is.

The new RPG "Disco Elysium" is coming out in a few days, is anyone else planning to get it?
Despite the huge amount of various info about the levelling system, the traits and such what is hardest to find is basic info like where the story takes place.

From what I have been able to gather it is in a retrofuturistic version of the 70's, set in an eastern-european inspired city called Ravachol (liked named after the French anarchist François Claudius Koenigstein). You play as a police detective, loosely affiliated with the militia police force which runs the law in the city. How you deal with the world around you is entirely up to you, and it seems like skill checks are extremely frequent and failing these don't always lead to negative consequences, just different outcomes.

I'd love to talk about it, especially if others plan to get it when it comes out on the 15th. I am especially intrigued by the "mind map", which is something the devs says will shape the player character. For example, focusing on particular ways of doing things may lead to the character developing OCD, and always choosing conspiracy-related topics could lead the character to become paranoid, giving different bonuses and penalties to the gameplay.

As far as gimmicks go, I think this is pretty interesting and I'm looking forward to seeing how it'll actually work. The devs have also said (in a thread on the steam forums) that the base game will be around 25 hours long just to do the main story, and at least 40 hours long for a single playthrough where you do whatever side quests you feel like.

Thoughts on this?

I played this game, probably the best game I've played in a long time. The only real complaint I have about it is that the decisions you make don't really end up influencing the world very much. After I completed the game I went online to read about other endings and options at various points and it seems that things mostly happen the same way no matter what you do. Although, this might have been intentional by the creators of the game, showing that the character thinks he is all important and the choices he makes matter a lot, when in reality he doesn't really matter much at all.

 No.50900

>>50866
I'd say the game is less about the destination and more about the journey. The main character himself can really develop in different ways over the course of the game so his place when you finally reach the ending is up to you.

I've spent about 1.2 years between 2009 and today on steam games (counting only approximate waking hours). I suspect most of my fellow wizards have been in game for far longer within that same time span. How much time do you estimate you've sacrificed to this hobby and do you have any regrets about it? Personally, I only regret the time I dedicated to games that I didn't truly enjoy.

I feel like I've finally hit an impassable wall when it comes to gaming. My actual time spent playing anything has taken a steep nose dive this year and I'm not sure if it'll ever recover. Days, and even weeks, go by now where I don't play anything at all. I also become fatigued while playing far more easily than usual, which is something I could usually endure/ignore, but now I can't even do that. I feel like I've been fighting a losing battle since the beginning of 2014, which is precisely when I'd say gaming started to really sour for me and ever since it's been more a struggle that I force myself to do, versus something I actually want to do for its own sake.

In my case, this has just as much to do with my autism/OCD as it has to do with simple anhedonia/burnout. There's still a gigantic amount of games out there that, as of this moment, I could very easily torrent/emulate and get to playing if I really wanted to. The sorts of games that I'm still interested in and that I still would like to get to at some point. The problem is that I can't enjoy anything and trying to motivate myself to sit down with a game and actually play it feels like pulling teeth, or having to drag my ass to some job I fucking hate. I honestly could care less what the current state of video games are. You see people whinging about it on here all the time, but, personally, I think it's really overblown and it's clear to see how there are still tons of games that come out that are still good and more than decent enough to play and enjoy. In the end, the problem just comes back to me, which is exactly what I'd argue is the case with anyone else who complains about the "state of gaming today" (that being, that it's ultimately their own problem), and the fact that, for me, I can't motivate myself to play anything I actually want to play.

I've been grappling with gaming burnout and anhedonia for a long time now, but I've kept forcing myself to keep at it because there's just nothing else for me to do, aside from watching random stuff like films/anime/shows, which I should really just focus on as a sort of break, or whatever, from gaming for a little while, or for however long it takes, instead of constantly forcing myself along like I need to meet a fucking work quota for the month of games finished. The thing is though is that, while some might think it ridiculous, I'm actually of the firm belief that society will probably collapse, or at the very least become muchPost too long.

I love this game so much. I am a wizard because of these games. Who needs friends when I have Lloyd and Genis? I often pretend they're with me when I play, making jokes and pointing out things I could do better. I tend to play as them more than others and am very used to Lloyd's crazy combos and Genis' spells. I also do the same in FFXII and DQVIII, where in FFXII it's me, Vaan, and Balthier. Balthier tends to make fun of me in my head but is ultimately a nice fellow and Vaan is just always excited about accomplishing stuff. I try to keep them in my party always and most often Basch too since they're all "bros" as normans would say. And in DQVIII, it's definitely Yangus and Angelo for me. I kicked Trode out of my party because he constantly criticized me (often, he was the voice of my obsession and anger) and Yangus is just a good guy and Angelo is funny with jokes and lewd comments about the succubi in the games. I have written lots of crossover fanfiction between the 3 games, like where the Summon Spirits of Sylvarant/Tethe'alla going into a cosmic war with the Espers in Ivalice, etc. I stopped writing years ago though because I have to spend more time finishing the games and less doing bullshit like posting on Wizchan but I really needed to tell someone besides my therapist who just phones it in and doesn't care anymore. Also, thank you for that picture, it made me laugh for the first time in a long while.
>So what's impossible about that exactly? I have no idea.
The problem is mainly how I have to do very specific rituals when I play certain parts. As said before,
>Meltokio to Ozette requires drinking 32oz of black coffee and going to the park at 2:30am
>the section in Welgaia requires me to play Genesis' album "A Trick Of The Tail" at 6:00pm

Excellent thread, op. I really enjoyed reading your conversation with the other wiz and related to a lot of it, especially about limited time. Had a similar experience with throwing out tons of junk a month ago for my mom as well. It felt similar to what you described as a once-a-year or so thing. Have been procrastinating on games all year, but some techniques help. Your feelings about enjoying games no one cares about hit so close to home, if I accidentally see a normgroid enjoy an indie game I love, I just grow to despise it in a way. Because of that decreasing looking up stuff to zero has been helpful. On the other hand, reading negative reviews of a small minority is nice, recent game being Disco Elysium. This past year, i really enjoyed the higurashi sound novels. I got my mother heavily into them, so it motivated me to finish the last 4 after a year break. It gave me a lot of understanding of potential of that media. It's also a dojin product, so it can hardly be ruined by westerners that want to discuss and share things, other than the steam workshop page that shows up in your library by default. As far as nier automata goes, the cavia games are simply way superior art, and drakengard 1 is like rape of nanking of games. Even the bullet witch, being a kusoge that it is is infinitely more enjoyable than witcher 3 or other nonsense story-game. Thanks for writing, wizanons like you make this place worthwhile, despite everything.

Just finished it. I loved the plot, setting, characters, dialogue, and the puzzles (for the most part). The real treat was Simon and Catherine’s interactions, and the philosophical conversations about technology’s capacity to preserve human consciousness (and whether such a thing is a worthy goal).

I found more of a horror element in the setting, traversing though dead undersea bases and so forth. I also felt quite disoriented and panicky when walking the ocean floor, wondering when/if I’ll even be able to make it to the next location.

A very good game overall. Would highly recommend.

The game is awesome, the ending is literally perfect, it is true horror, I couldn't even imagine a fate like that, it's nightmare fuel. I really liked how the devs made the game so frightening without using cheap jump scares or other silly crap like that, but truly a psychological horror on a subject most people have probably never even contemplated. Yeah it is a walking simulator, puzzles are pretty easy, but it's still really good as you're meant to read/listen to stories and logs that provide the lore of the world which slowly lets you know what's really going on, it took me about 10 hours to complete. I probably won't play it again but still I'd give it a 9/10, only issue I had was a couple time enemies would be patrolling an area in which there were lots of data logs and computers to read through but I wasn't able to really read any of the stuff in that section of the game because I'd get killed, would have liked if there was a way to contain the enemy so that I could have went through all those logs.

Because they took the ideas of Gen 1 and 2, solidified and added to the mechanics as they went (gen 1 especially is today regarded as a buggy mess), on top of updating the series every few years with scores of new monsters to use. The mechanics became solid enough for a competitive and fluid metagame to develop. They always did/cared enough to hold onto sizeable chunks of existing fans while drawing some new ones thus stayed successful for 20+ years with the same fundamental formula.
