Anyone else find this game really relaxing? I feel dumb for enjoying it, but its the best to listen to podcast or audiobooks

I also wanted to ask if anyone knows wheel/pedals that are decently priced and decent quality? I have absolutely no experience buying that sort of thing

 No.50234

I would find it relaxing if every time I tried to play it I wouldn't get stuck on a pole or something and had to start the mission all over again.

i want to play GTA IV really bad, but it's just such a pain in the ass to get it set up and it might take several hours of troubleshooting and trying to install mods only for it to still not work at all. i really don't know if it's a can of worms i'm ready to open yet.
i was also thinking of doing STALKER SoC, but same story there, i read the readme file for the Zone Reclamation Project and yawned. i don't give a fuck about your 15 step process bitch! bitch!

you know something i've always wondered is WHY DON'T THESE RETARDS PUT PRE-PATCHED, PRE-MODDED SHIT UP ON TORRENT SITES?

what the fuck? i remember new english patches coming out for shin megami tensei games coming out, and instead of giving me a pre-patched ROM, i have to go get some software and patch it myself, are you kidding me dude? just put the pre-patched shit up in the first place.

you know what i'll do instead of jumping through hoops like some animal? i'll just not fucking play it. ahahaha seriously. if i have to do more than 15 minutes of installation, if i have to watch youtube guides or whatever, i'm not playing it!



>"hey dude i got this list of MUST HAVE mods!"

oh yeah? zip em up for me dude, i'm ready to have a go.
>"no dude, you have to go to 17 different websites and install them yourself. ETA 6 hours. oh by the way, you have to get this specific version of the game. yeahh, so you have to take your file of the game, install the official update from the official site, then, install this fan update that brings it to version .9, then install this complete overhaul update. then you can start installing all the mods on my list."
how about instead of having me do all that shit you just upload it pre-patched and pre-modded and ready to go? why are you having people download useless versions of the game?
>"WTF DUDE GO BACK TO CONSOLE YOU'RE SO LAZY JESUS. btw there's a 10% chance that even after all that work that the game might just refuse to run if you're on windows 7 or 10."

this "strawman" is unironically the current state of Battle for Middle Earth 2 Age of the Ring mod.

oh, wait.

Yeah, I don't actually use mods often. The vanilla version is usually good enough and the mods I used is minor enough to not break the game. Big and popular enough mods usually has extensive troubleshooting coverage though. Besides there is usually no one definitive sets of mods for people to use and even if there is, it isn't worth the hosting and potential takedowns to provide a download link.

>i remember new english patches coming out for shin megami tensei games coming out, and instead of giving me a pre-patched ROM, i have to go get some software and patch it myself

These ones? Just erase the .pdf extensions since wizchan won't let me upload roms. I got these from /smtg/ but searching google net me some pre patched results. Maybe nobody just had not uploaded a pre patched ver yet because the patch just came out.

>does this seem reasonable to you?
Umm, yes? I am probably used to it already but it doesn't look that bad to me. The terrible ones is the one with tons of dependencies and require you to install some third party software.

there was a free giveaway and i got a copy of Persona 4 Golden. im one of the lucky few who it just works right out of the box, but it's looking like others aren't so lucky and are having to download shady .exe files to try to repair it haha. i hate PC gaming, i honestly really do. it's a gamble. every game you buy and download is a gamble as to whether or not it will work, and then, a gamble as to whether or not "fixes" will work after that.

are there any games you used to like, and you replayed them and realized they were bad?

shin megami tensei strange journey was in my top 5 games of all time list back in 2012 to 2018.
i replayed it this year and it's so much easier and braindead than i remembered, i think i became more skilled at turn-based games and at exploring maps and conserving MP, and this game just offers no difficulty whatsoever for me now and i steamrolled through all fights. i remember when i first played the game, horkos was so difficult that i died to him 8 times in a row. when replaying i killed him in like 5 turns. it is a simplistic game for babies. play wizardry 8 if you want a hard turn based experience.

or how about dead rising? this is another game that i considered infallible art, i bought an xbox just to play this game back in the day. when replaying its HD rerelease on PS4, all of the psychopaths are way less interesting than i remember them being, the dialogue isn't even cheezy or fun, it's just melodramatic. dead rising 2 is superior in just about every single way with much more effort put into balance and content quality and quantity. and the funny thing is, i didn't even like dead rising 2 at launch. it makes me feel like i've evolved as a person.

maybe i will add more later as i think more on this subject.

let me know if this has happened to you.

A lot of Nintendo games. Nintendo cannot do completion well at all it seems. Super Mario Sunshine had those stupid blue coins, Luigi's Mansion has golden mice and special ghosts you need to meticulously look for (plus bosses you need to get on the first suck), LOZ: Wind Waker has a new game plus that is the one you get 100% for the photos, all LOZ games have heart containers that I've had to look up to get, etc.

Just horrible. I really don't like the Legend of Zelda because 100%ing it is so tedious. It's so tedious to 100% a lot of the Nintendo games. I remember 100%ing Mario Galaxy and it was FUN. I loved that game! There wasn't any tedious stuff or obscure stuff. I didn't have to plan my entire game and research how to fully complete the game. Holy crap. It's so sad.

For LOZ: WW, I consider 100%ing it getting all the heart containers and such, as usual, then going to the new game + and actually getting the color photos. Man, that's so sad. I haven't played that game in like a year since it's so daunting. Maybe I'll beat it this year.

Goddamn guys my tastes are really messed up right now. It happened before, I played vidya all my life at some points I was fed up with games, I couldn't bring myself to play anything, I saw them as boring and repetitive. Then after some time (my dopamine receptors recovered) I started playing them again. I have been catching up on games, I have a bunch of them that I can still run on my pc, the newer ones I just stack on an external hard drive. I like the stories, I'm finishing the mass effect trilogy rn, it's really nice. Now I think you all know of the TLOU2 sjw bullshit, I was looking forward to that game and now it's ruined by progressive agenda. After I moved on from this game, I saw on a ps4 sale the Order 1886 and Watch Dogs 2. Then I watched some reviews, showing how the order is short, 7 hours (1/3 cutscenes, 1/3 walking and talking) and shotgunners are op. But I wanted to play a game in that setting with those graphics and killing enemies and creatures with cool weapons. Then I saw how cringe the characters of Watch Dogs 2 are, how shitty the story is and I saw the feminazi antagonist and the masked gamer. But I love the setting, I would have explored SF just like I did with Los Angeles in GTA. I wanted to be creative with hacking and using non lethal approaches. But both games have been ruined for me. I refunded them, I paid 14$ for the Order and 20$ for Watch Dogs. Now I feel empty, sad that I'm missing out on these three games. Oh, and Borderlands 3 is also cringe with its characters but that one wasn't something I was really excited about. So I'm not saying I have no other games, it's just that watching opinions on YouTube over games that I want to play is ruining my enjoyment for vidya in general. Take Dragon Age for example, I like how Inquisition looks (again after watching reviews) but I couldn't finish the second one, because it was so repetitive and the dungeons were recycled over and over again. The first one had such low graphics, clunky movements and poor gameplay I couldn't play more than one hour. Now I know Bioware, I know I have to experience all three games to understand the lore and my choices, but I don't think I can play these two games again. I don't know what to do, I feel so empty. I feel like I'm missing out, but I have a lot of games to play, I have to be somewhat picky. I don't have a lot of time, I'm a wage slave so I can't just "play all of them brah". I bought WD2 on ps4 because I don't think my pc will run it that gPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Just stay away from western bullshit and play Japanese games. playing Xenoblade chronicles definitive right now and plan to play Sakura wars and Utawarerumono after. Also keep playing ff14 and having a ball but its content drought season until july for that game. I also have Phantasy Star online 2 downloaded but had issues running it. Likely won't really get into it until I get through some of these single player games.

I knew the last of us 2 was going to be garbage. The company was already towing the social justice warrior line when the first game came out and they have only been getting more and more drunk on the cool aid since then. I will still play it but only when its fucking $20 or less and used. I never really bought the first one either it came free with my ps4.

Only western game I am really still playing right now is Insurgency Sandstorm on occasion. not saying all western games are bad I know there is a diamond in the rough still be produced with minimal bullshit. But most the shit churned out by big companies is just awful.

I completely forgot about this thread, funny since I started to think about the Touhou fighting games recently. Anyone know the difference between them and which ones are better to start out with?
I know they mainly started as somewhat traditional fighting games, with later games starting to introduce more projectiles, spellcards, and flying like you'd see in normal Touhou games.

Hellow dear fellow wizzards.

Im currently looking for someone to play this gem with.
it holds great sentimental value for me as i used to play this game a lot on the SNES with one of my friends i used to have when i was still young (34 of age now)
I reside in the CET time zone (EUROPA) but i dont think time difference should be too much of an issue.
Also if you have anything cool to say about this game please be my guest and share your fond memories

I played that game a bit with someone else when I was young (age 30). I got bored of it because the guy was being too competitive if I recall. Like I was stressed into leveling up or something. So I quit. It's on my to-do list for PSX game collecting though. I'm such a bum I have not the space to back up my backups if I get a bunch of PSX ROM's everywhere.

No wait, that was LEGEND OF MANA.

I have Secret of Mana but got stuck after beating that bird thing near the mushroom kingdom. There was a second boss somewhere but I didn't see it.

Also, The Secret of Evermore or whatever I have. It's like the same game dynamics. Then again i found it lame and probably deleted Evermore. Not the right theme though, it's cyber and not magic if I recall the beginning.

There is a sequel also, to this game. It was translated to English but never given to us. It is the third game, the Gameboy game final fantasy adventure was the first, though not very similar.

You should play all three. I got stuck in a wall once in the Gameboy one that is misnamed for the English.


Anyway, was that even two player? The Legend one was, but not the normal RPG one you're talking about, was it? It's single player, yeah?

I'm looking for Youtube channels or just single videos which provide detailed analysis about the story/gameplay/game design/whatever of video games or just interesting theories, facts and other stuff like that. I don't really know how to explain it any better so I'm just gonna link a few examples.

I also like this guys game design videos
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmY2tPu6TZMqHHNPj2QPwUQ

or pannenkoek2012's SM64 videos.

I just realized I'm being kinda vague here, I'm bascially searching for informative game videos. Any game goes.

Skies of Arcadia is the most beautiful game ever made. I still remember the breathtaking landscapes and the general ambiance. You really feel that pirate/explorer. No other game I’ve ever played felt so good.

Combat mechanics could have been better (you basically spam the same attacks again and again) but it’s no worse than other JRPG of the time in this area.

I wish they made a sequel. Unfortunately I don’t know how they could. The whole game was based around exploration and by the end of it you explored it entirely.

I never played the original, but I got Skies of Arcadia Legends on Gamecube when it came out and loved it. I really enjoyed the large ship battles, though I'm not sure if those were added for that version or not. If they were just an addition, what a great one . Regular combat wasn't too bad at all for turn-based (something I never minded and even actually kind of like anyway), it was also the first RPG I remember playing that used that "common pool of points to distribute per turn for special moves" system.

Good RPG, would definitely recommend as well. Wish I still had my Gamecube and this game and my old save to just go explore around again now.

I always liked Drachma.

Yes ship battle were already a feature in the Dreamcast version. I never played the GC one but IIRC the only difference is a few more optional bosses in the GC one.
