Thanks. The faces do look worse but I don't think the second pic is such a big deal? The QoL features are the only thing keeping me from just emulating the wii version on dolphin, I can't really be bothered to keep up with what switch emulator is best and messing around with the settings and what not. I do believe I have the hardware for it but it's too much of a hassle for now.

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.

for me it is, I don't really like the switch into 3d graphics as I really loved handpainted graphics from second game, the campaign is just boring, there are no gods anymore and there are less races

it's not all bod through, I really liked that in order to get resources from mines they have to be in your domain, also the class/race system adds a little bit of variety, the game overall is just worse than AoW2, but that doesn't mean it's utterly bad

Yeah, I was gonna try a fitgirl crack awhile back but got cold feet. Although, it seemed like other posts about fitgirl echoed what you said.
I can also vouch for these "services" just giving you a license instead of ownership like with a physical copy of yore. I've been threatened with account closure by multiple licensing platforms, including Steam. None actually followed through and probably won't especially if you never voice disagreement with anything they do, but the terms spell it out plainly that they can close your account for whatever reason they want.

from my understanding, fitgirl gets cracks directly from cracker scenes. the people actually doing the cracking are like autistic samurai, they do it entirely for prestige among their cracker peers and for reputation, and so there is low risk among established crackers that they would release something bad. so there is that, plus you can just upload/scan everything yourself to make sure. everytime i do it however, it says the files have already been uploaded and scanned by virustotal so you can be sure if anything bad was found it would be in the comments. another issue particular to fitgirl is copycat sites using a different domain but mirroring the same content, i think the only difference is they replace her donation/crypto links to their own. i've scanned stuff from the copycat sites and didn't see any modifications to the releases but it's best to just avoid them

Nebuchadnezzar. Man this game caught me by surprise. Just found out about this title 2 days ago. It has been consuming my life like no other game in a very long time. I'm a fan of the old city building managers like Caesar and Cleopatra but this one really hit it for me. Starting with the setting. Ancient Mesopotamia is one of those historical periods I was always fascinated by but for whatever reason never actually got in the right frame of mind to really sit down and read about it more closely. Nebuchadnezzar is divided by campaigns where you manage important Mesopotamian cities, from the neolithic and early bronze age, all the way to late iron age and classical antiquity. From Sumerians to Neo-Babylonians.

If you have played some city management games before this, it will be familiar to you but there are some very charming things about Nebuchadnezzar that I quite enjoy it and makes it perhaps my favorite of the bunch. I think the most interesting thing about the gameplay is how insidious failure is. You make a mistake but it won't be obvious at all until your city starts to fall apart, very slowly at first and then a sudden collapse if you neglect to realize it in time. There's a fair amount of micromanagement here which makes your mistakes harder to notice. You are just busy doing something else, without realizing a crisis is coming your way. This aspect alone fascinates me but there's a lot more to it than that.

Now, I've never ran an ancient, craddle of civilization city in real life before but I imagine this game does a good job simulating that in some areas. For example the constant fight for adequate space. It's no coincidence all ancient civilizations began near a river. It's amazing what a logistical nightmare Nebuchadnezzar can become because of the location of a river. If you're not very careful with how you plan things out, you'll waste that very, very precious valley space and your entire city will be churning in pain as you try to avoid your citizens to run out of bread. There's a very satisfying learning curve here where each catastrophic failure will teach you very valuable lessons.

Speaking of failure, this game doesn't pull any punches. It's quite hard if you compare to most games these gays, even on normal setting. Just learning how everything works is not enough. It will also test your patience in a good way. The objectives for each campaign really test how well your city is running. One of the common goalPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Since you guys are in the topic of low poly games I'll ask.
Lately I've seen people claiming playstation games actually look better than n64 games, now back in he day it was pretty much an accepted fact that while the playstation had more and better games, the n64 looked better, I've yet to see a playstation game that looks as well as Conker's Bad Fur Day or Majora's Mask, for example.
I don't know if it's nostalgia, or the fact that ps emulators work better than n64 emus, or if I've been actually wrong the entire time but it's the weirdest shit I swear. One thing I will concede is that having CDs allowed playstation to have more detailed textures, because of the storage space, so maybe it looks better when upscaled? So I don't know, maybe people haven't really played the games on original hardware and crt TVs as intended

somewhat related, did you hear about the $20k halo 2 challenege to beat the legendary campaign with all skulls and no deaths?

i'm excited that it gets people interested in playing the older halo games again. i like the idea of a rich streamer setting up something like this, it's almost like they are acting as a patron to increase the game's popularity. i hope other people do similar things to other games

Thread for games you managed to finish and your thoughts on it.


So I finished Amnesia Dark Descent yesterday. Horror is a favorite genre of mine in any media and this is a game I wanted to play for a long, long time now but several reasons, from depression to not giving a shit about games anymore, kept getting in the way. This is a spoiler free review of it.

It's the mid 1800s and you play as Daniel, a guy who went on an expedition in Africa and found something in a forgotten, ancient catacomb. The object is 'cursed' though, which prompts him to write letters to geologists, historians and anyone in Europe for help. A baron named Alexander writes back saying he can help and Daniel should go to his castle in Germany at once. You spend the entire game exploring the castle, its secrets, finding notes and letters that reveal more about the curse, the object, yourself and everything else. That's the premise of the whole thing.

As far as the story goes, it has a few nice ideas here and there but overall it's nothing too new or exciting. Here's where the magic of this game happens however. Everything this game does, it does it in an very brief, nice length measure, both with its story as well as with its gameplay. The story is fairly simple and straight forward, though you have to reach the end to realize that. It's entertaining because they didn't bloat it with any unnecessary fluff nor stretch it to pretend there's more than it actually is.

The gameplay is pretty much exploration/stealth on one side and puzzles on the other. Now, it's been a year since I played a game and I kinda had forgotten already how much video game logic there is in video games. Amnesia is particularly chock-full with video game logic. For example, during the entire game you need to keep close to light sources to keep your sanity up, but you can't just grab one of the thousands of candles or torches you find along the way, you need to use a lamp that burns oil extremely fast or keep lighting the candles with tinderboxes. Moving torches or candles is IMPOSSIBLE. Sometimes you'll need an object to solve puzzles, like using a hammer for example, but you can't use one of the several hammers you find lying around, or a rock for that matter, you need that one specific hammer you find in some other part of the map. You can't just use any iron bar, it has to be the 'right' iron bar. You can't just use any of the several jars or glasses on the floor, Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Finished Bully
I can't help but think it's just an inferior GTA. Of course you have to work with the limitations of being a high school student, so not a lot of guns, not many vehicles and not a huge city to explore. The thing is, what did they replace these things with? Well, nothing. It's just GTA, with a few gimmicky weapons, bikes as sole form of transportation (and a skateboard that's slightly faster than running), a lot of melee combat, which would be fine if it wasn't so simple, games like Yakuza are 99% fist combat, they they have fun and somewhat complex systems, in this game I can't think of a single fight in which I couldn't just win by mashing square. The map is not just limited to the school, but it's not that much bigger either, and for some reason bikes are fucking scarce, I ended up running way more than I'd like to. School students are fucking annoying too, always trying to beat you up and, for some reason, the prefects only go after you when you fight back.
But at least the story is good? No, predictable as fuck, it's so predictable that it leaves you waiting for a twist that never happens, you could say it's so predictable, it loops back and becomes unpredictable, if that makes any sense.
I don't know, I expected more than just dumbed down GTA.

Finished Braid, it's a good game, simple but with somewhat complex puzzles. My only problem with it is that some of the puzzles give you too little margin for error, even when you figure the puzzle out they give you just the exact amount of time to pull the solution off, which in some cases made me wonder if I was even doing the right thing, not a huge fan of the art style, game is hand drawn but the characters look kinda ugly to me, I guess it's a matter of taste.

people who complain about leavers in games have no sense of probability or soul. why play a league game where everybody is losing lane hard and cant outscale? why play a csgo game where you are getting rolled 10-0? why play a overwatch game where you are getting fullheld after they did a clean sweep? not just in terms of probability to win but also just the soul of it. these games are unfun, shitty, and often sources of rage. so just fucking leave. simple.

Made a new character. He's a serial killer pyromaniac that had to escape from prison to survive. I've been lucky so far and found a bunch of useful stuff early on, a crowbar, a baseball bat (which is now a nail bat, one of the best early game weapons), riot armor in prison, cargo pants, backpack, a bunch of books etc.
9 str, 12 dex, 9 int, 10 per
Being a serial killer he's a good night raider too, he has nigh vision, weak scent and light step so raiding cities is fairy easy (at least the outskirts), especially with that nail bat.
He lives in a pump station close to a city but not too close so it's safe and of course there's a water source right inside the building which is amazing. There was a spider lair nearby but I've burned it. Now that I'm (relatively) prepared I'm gonna start leveling crafting/interaction skills like health care, tailoring and applied science and maybe some electronics too.

I found the game randomly when messing around on my alternate computer. I thought about you then. It looks to be the kind of game where you need to know everything to play, and by that time, it's really easy. It seems hard to craft things and get the stuff to craft it if you're a beginner. I might look at tons of videos and guides before continuing with this game. It would be nice to settle down somewhere and have people come to me for help (if possible). Then, with time, I could have town of my own or something. Sounds cool.

Its crazy rembering the whole timeline for this. How it started with some rumors about BF6 early in 2021, then the 1st leaked images of just a space ship in spring 2021, Tom's rumors about a robot dog. Everyone getting hyped up that this was going to be a return to BF4 modern day warfare. Waiting an extra hour just to watch the 1st trailer drop in the summer. A trailer for a trailer. Then the terrible beta. But people rebounding in hope towards launch that it might be fixed on time. Its really the 1st game where I followed the hype from start to end.
