Fly me to the moon

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.

I play sorceress naked (ie. no equipment except for rejuv potions); love that grape juice.


New games are objectively shit. Zoomers don't really like traditional games, they are addicted to mobile games or hyper competitive PC shooters. The game devs who do make traditional games are captured up in the SJW propaganda machine and are actively trying to make games worse to appease the SJW circlejerk.

Just boomer it up and play games from the 1995-2010 era, or their remakes. I am sure there are still a ton of games from that era that you have yet to experience.


I'm playing the remastered version right now. It stays pretty true to the original. I think, at least. I never played the game in it's prime, but the online portion definitely captures that early 2000s feel.


calm down there gramps, those zoomers and their sjw halo!


Halo isn't really a zoomer game.

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.

all the love for GTA IV here is making me happy.
no game to this day has even come close to its physics system and NPC animations and response to being damaged. Their near-death-state where they'd limp off into cover adds a lot of sadistic satisfaction that NO GAME SINCE OR BEFORE IT has come close to.


and battlefield 3 + 4
You're right, not to mention the incredible atmosphere of the game (especially when it rained)


Medal of Honor Allied Assault. It was one of the first fps games I really got into, the expansions, multi-player, loved it.

Tribes 2, just the map music alone is enough to make me smile. It was perhaps the only online game I could play in my youth that never truly angered me if I did poorly in it.


>Soul Reaver
Because it has the best dialogues I have seen in a game to this day and introduced me to gnosticism
>Silent Hill
First horror game I've ever played, couldn't sleep for days after playing it for the first time as a kid.
>Metal Gear Solid
The first game that teached me not to kill everything in sight and it was the first game I've played that had a "serious" plot
>Brave Fencer Musashi
Underrated as fuck, it was meant to be the "Zelda" of Play Station. I used to discuss tactics to beat bosses and discover secrets with my friends as a kid.
First game that introduced me to modding. Made me feel in love with PC gaming.
I got my first job to buy a PC good enough to run this game, back when it came out. I was in love with Morrowind modding scene and the mods for this game looked awesome, I just had to play it, and when I finally got to run it on my new PC it was one of the happiest days of my life.
>Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodliness
Because it was awesome
it was a knockoff of Lineage 2, but it was the first MMO I've played, and I met a lot of people there.
I haven't really stopped playing it since it came out.


Is it really a repeat though? Truly unworthy of separate praise? Also, I'm not too bothered by samesies. The games I listed were due to the impact it had on me.
But yes, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. SOC and COP were pretty much the same game with slightly different stories and gameplay mechanics. To call GTA's III and IV the same, and
also FO3 and NV the same is kinda crazy though. Especially the Fallouts, they're two drastically different games and I'd even go so far as to say it's quite a
bitch to get the hang of one games mechanics if you've been playing the other for a while. New Vegas performs well in gameplay mechanics and Fallout 3's story is
pure nostalgia bait, it was an 80's movie plotline dialed to an 11.

You know I used to be on the other chan around the time GTA IV released and I remember the hate it got for being so bare bones yet I just loved everything about
the game; from the story to the gameplay, to the side activities and even the mechanics. It had the same allure as GTA III to me, only with a bigger script and more
dialogue. To me GTA III felt like an old Tarantino movie. Very vague, sparse information and backgrounds on characters, almost like a dream-world. IV on the other
hand was a good story for me, but that gameplay was crazy. It was very sharp, is the only way I can put it. The sliding towards walls/cars when pressing the cover
button. The easy of aiming upwards to toward the head and getting a headshot. I used to do playthroughs with nothing but the glock for "realism" when I was a little
spergy kid. Also the fucking fighting mechanics was the best Rockstar had since maybe The Warriors. The ability to keep aiming at a dead body to stomp on it or hit
it with your bat was fucking amazing especially once you learned that most downed enemies were still alive. Rockstar always knew how to advance each game. Which is
why their current practices are odd to me. They're still leaps and bounds ahead of everyone else in what to put into their games, but now they're lacking the sort of
logic and thPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Anyone of you guys into Pathologic? I played the OG and HD multiple times and I love it's lore and atmosphere. There is nothing that is remotely politically correct. It's all pretty harsh and depressive.

But Pathologic 2 looks like tumblr tbh. Is it worth a buy?

Played it a few year ago, fantastic game, I was depressed at the time and this game really struck. I think the "bad" gameplay and graphics are great because they turn normalfags away.
Got Pathologic 2 last year when it came out but I haven't gotten around to play it.


it has some of the most interesting writing you'll find in any video game but can be a bit confusing especially if you're not familiar with Russian literature


really? i only though the beginning was confusing because i couldn't tell what the families were after. after 2-3 days everything looked clearer to me.
how does russian literature influence it?


Playing the game is all about being confused, until you put all the puzzle pieces together.


now at day 11. this shit is getting weirder.
reminds me of watching ergo proxy

When I was a kid I always wanted to have a PS2,but my family was too poor to buy videogames.

Now I finally bought a PS2 fat,even when I have a PS3 and PS4 Pro for some circumstances I can't afford to buy games for those right now,so I bought a PS2, the guy on ebay said that it was in good condition and it should arrive in a couple of days.

It includes 2 dualshock controllers and most importantly a FMCB memory card,so I can pirate and create my own DVD's.

What are the best games I can play on it? And homebrews/hacks? The PS2 looks beareable on a HDTV?

Please don't suggest emulators like PCSX2,my PC is too slow for that,keep it PS2 only.

-Jak & Daxter saga (including Jak X)
-All prince of persia
-All god of war
-Spiderman (the movie game)
-Sly Raccoon
-All Ratchet and Clank (Deadlocked may be not idk)
-Tekken 4
-Harry Potter 2(chamber) and 3(azkaban)
(the 4th one sucks)
-Every ps1 disc could be played at ps2.


ah yes
the 2 ssx's i never played


most ps2 titles are rendered in 480i, tvs do the deinterlacing but adds a ton of input lag, theres special devices like the retrotink5x pro that have a special deinterlacing mode but the things like $300 if you can find it


The Warriors
Red Dead Revolver

Is SWITCH comfy?


All 3d marios are collectathons mixed with platforming, but odyssey has the least enjoyable platforming of all of them. The city world was cool tho


I beat Pokemon Sword recently and was pleasantly surprised at how many deeply established Pokemon tropes the game broke. They made a hundred changes from older games and they're universally positive


Currently NEO the world ends with you, fun as fuck game.

It looks gay. They sold you this game already. Like 5 times over.


So what, if it's good and you like it? I know some are disppointed that they won't make a new Armored Core game or any of their other stuff, I'm glad not to be among them.

Is anyone playing this game? It is free so I started playing it a few days ago and I thought it was stupid, but I kept playing it anyway because my brain told me to and now I think it's pretty enjoyable.

If you haven't played and want a description from me, here it is:

Genshin is like the original Guild Wars with it's mostly single player explorable world, except this game doesn't have multiplayer city hubs, instead there is just a list of players and friends and you can hop in to their world and play with up to 3 other people.

It is visually pleasing, it has a gacha system for unlocking new characters and I guess if you want you could also spend thousands of dollars to get the best gear possible

The quests are alright, there are quests that tell you where to go exactly, quests that tell you the general area to go, and some quests that give you a clue to solve by yourself.

There are life skills in game like mining, cooking, alchemy, forging, and housing.

The combat is a little clunky if you are just playing by yourself but I think it would be fun if you had a full party because it's based on elemental interactions and some characters need to aim which is hard when monsters are running at you.

Ok so that's all I know so far, does anyone want to play? Or maybe there is a jaded veteran here that can tell everyone why it's bad? Well, either or.

Oh definitely. It's rare for chests to give something that's of any particular use, the main two things that you get out of them are some additional primogems and fodder for item/weapon upgrades. They can occasionally give you an okayish 4-star item, but it's better to just farm artifact domains for that.
And wanna play coop, wizzie? Getting a bit bored of just doing dailies and farming materials. I'm AR 52 so can help you out with some bosses or exploration~


I'm still playing. AR 56, but pretty nooby, can barely win the spiral abyss and I've never hit 36 stars before despite having good characters


crap internet ruins any game that requires internet connection, been thinking of trying immortals fenyx rising. who here has played it? might rid me of my genshin thirst


>casual exploration game when you've just started
>challenging combat at world level 2
>get stunlocked-killed from full health by elite creeps at world level 3
>strengthening your character requires running all over the world to grind
I know you can lower the world level but fuck Mihoyo and fuck gacha. The worst thing about gacha isn't even the gambling shit but this garbage do the same thing for 20 times until it drops one out of 10 items your characters need to increase level cap then good job, now grind for exp items, skill level up items, weapon items and all the other garbage so you can beat our artifically difficult bosses that manipulates your frustations to pour time and money to our game.

Beautiful world though. No Andrew I won't play with you.

After coming to terms with the shit game design choices I am ragequitting this game again. Was fighting a Primo Geovishap when it gets too far from its spawn area and resets, basically going back to its spawn point and going back to full health. This is a boss that has a special cave arena built for him. Why the fuck would you make the resets zone smaller than the arena? This is a difficult boss too with shitty attack designs that has long range and practically no iframes. I wasted a lot of recovery food getting it down to half health (I suck) and it just fucking resets? Plenty of other bugs and QOL problems that could be easily solved but didn't for some reasons. Fucking pajeet tier codemonkeys. The game design choices and PR teams are abysmal but the programmer teams are underrated in their incompetence. Holy shit, please someone mildly competent make a Genshin clone already.

Any WOW wizzies can give me advice on how to farm gold on WOW? I was looking at buying necromancer expansion on Diablo 3 but its too expensive at 21.95 in Australia. But I've heard you can buy a month of wow in the game using gold and then sell it for real life money in blizzard store so I could get it for almost free, I just have to get enough gold in WOW, problem is I never played it and not experienced at MMO games, any wizzies here got advice if I can get a month of wow time for free doing online surveys and the grind enough gold in a month to buy one token of WOW gold? Or is it simply impossible/too hard to earn from scratch in one month? Just want some advice before I start, so I don't waste my time if it's not possible.

OK, but I'll say thanks here if it comes through.


sad thing is I want to do it since it's as close as I can get to doing something for another person and am actually impatient for no reason
hope to collect that thanks in 3 days wiz fren


Thanks for the gift, wizfriend. This is the nicest anyone's ever been to me on the internet.

It is done, I think.


I'm glad to help, makes me happy knowing I helped another wiz who can now save their hard earned surveybux on something else.

I am now playing as the ottomans. They have a lot of potential for colonization and you can just steamroll africa if you build a bunch of naval bases and get the technologies researched beforehand, but I decided to stick to the sahara, the horn of africa and that coast underneath sokoto. I could have gotten a lot more, but honestly dominating 90% of the african landmass would be quite ridiculous in my opinion.

I don't think I can hit the coveted #1 ranking, despite having the strongest military in the world, because the industries are shite. The ottomans have very poor potential for industrialization compared to other GPs. Good for me though I will unlock the eletric gear/automobile/telephone factories and I can spam them as they are in extremely high demand and I have all the resources, maybe my industry will rise three or two ranks

I will get prestige techs as well and hopefully become the 1st most prestigious country in the world, then I will turn my attention to the potential Great war, I've been too afraid of sparking conflict in europe but now I want to go heads on. Humiliating austria or russia is a wet dream


Are the Digimon World games on the PSX any good?

Currently playing D2:Resurrected. Never really enjoyed the game the first time around due to my severe depression at the time. Thoroughly enjoying it now and am really glad they stayed true to the original.


File: 1632835845494.png (118.6 KB, 252x226, 126:113, Mega_Man_ZX_Coverart.png) ImgOps iqdb

I am playing Megaman ZX(2nd time through) and I don't know if I like it or not.

First of all, the in-game map is basically useless, it's open world, but there is no way you can tell where, for example "Area K" is with logic, you might logically think "Oh, area K is probably around area I", well you would be completely wrong, area K is next to area C. That is just one issue, but you can solve it by just looking at a map of the game on the internet.

The next issue I have is with the bosses, every boss has a weakspot (I think it does double damage) and if you hit that weakspot then you can basically win without even trying, but the downside is that when you get the biometal piece after it will be damaged based on how much you used the weakspot. The problem I have with this is that a lot of the bosses have a huge weakspot, like you have to actually try to not hit their weakspot. This makes it so you have to spend a lot of time meticulously chipping at a bosses legs or something just so you can get an undamaged biometal OR you can cheese every boss and then just grind the game's currency to repair the biometals later if you absolutely cannot beat the boss without the weakspot but grinding currency is tedious and slow.

Now the core issues I have is that the game doesn't really offer any challenge. Platforming is basically non-existent, the difficulty comes solely from screen crunch and reacting to enemies as soon as they appear on screen. The bosses are pretty simple and stray away from the formula of other megaman games, there are projectiles that are not meant to be dodged like you would do in another megaman game, instead you are just supposed to shoot at them until they go away.

The game feels good to play but everything else is just kind of stupid
