Zoomer here, I've got a lot of time to kill, I wanted to ask any wizzies here what would be some must play games for me to try out on any console excluding ps5 exclusives. I've started playing some ps2 games such as drakengard and Persona 3, I got really tired of all the dark souls I played. Preferably give me a lot of japanese made games, although that isnt mandatory. Thank you!

>Steambot Chronicles
Fuck, I was just thinking about this game the other day and started listening to the songs again. One of my favorite games ever, such a shame the sequel got killed.


>DOTA 2 > League of Legends
lol this again


Thats some good bait, my favorite part was
>Turn Based: Final Fantasy XIV Online
I laughed


you really need to say what genres you like to play, 'japanese games' means almost nothing in terms of game content

So I've been on the fence about playing this little gem (persona 1).
Did some reading around and it is hated by some and loved by others. (guess that's always the case eh)

Anyway, I'm a 36yrs old fag and tired of life, I am planning on playing this on the psvita. Seen as I am always tired as fuck after a long day of wageslaving and playing family guy I will probably be playing for an hour or 1.5 to 2 every other night.

So without spoiling, I hope you guys can give me some pros and cons about this game.

Should I invest in it ? Or steer clear ?

Many thanks for the feedback.


I thought the game was pretty good, it's easy and short (for a JRPG, which is still like 30 hours), if that's an issue for you. It also mostly stays away from the waifufaggotry that permeates the series in the 3 most recent games. Probably the only persona in which the plot has some thought into it, it takes influence from Jungian psychology (he basically came up with the concept of the "persona").
I think it's definitely worth a playthrough, stay the hell away from the original PSX localization, it has some awful changes.


it's okay, I prefer Persona 2.

It's only worth playing the most current game since they build off from previous, terrible advice leading people into solo grinding handheld games with bad mechanics

Priority should be Rise while its still alive and getting upgrades. If you want to check out World its also the best MonHunter ever made.


The new expansion is too expensive.


I started with world + iceborne and it seems like the best introduction to the series, especially so if you plan to play on pc because it's not a switch port like rise.


Is the iceborne version really worth it? It's about twice the price.


Yes, the expansions for monster hunter games are the real game. They add in tons of monsters, new moves, and of course another rank.

Albatross 18 / PangYa - anyone remember this?

This Korean game began in 2004 and had several seasons. Got a Wii adaptation in 2006 called "Swing Golf PangYa" ported in English as "Super Swing Golf".

in 2011 they had an expansion called Wiz City https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caogK7f8Djw

which is about when it got a Steam group https://steamcommunity.com/groups/albatross18

I remember running this back on my Vista PC, it was just a nice zen waifu fest. I want something like this again. Not a golf fan but it made me want to try.

Not sure when this game fell apart, maybe 2012ish? I'll admit not to playing it in it's end stages since my PC was having probs gaming and I'd switched to anime.

I'm wondering if finding the ROMs for Wii emulatorwould be the closest I'd get to playing the original PC game again. I'm just curious how it felt, I don't remember clearly.


Yeah OK gangschizo fedglowie. I downloaded a Rom for Pangya PSP like 3 hours ago and just tried to launch it. It kept crashing so I came to Wizchan to take my frustrations out on other wizards and the first thread is this.

I'm seeking feedback, criticism, and suggestions to improve the DVGGT. What makes sense? What's unclear? What aspects do you disagree with?

I'm sick of every game on Steam being labeled an action-adventure-RPG-simulation. Dewey Decimal invented a taxonomy for literature. There is no reason why we can't do the same.

Cool effort, but like someone said above a genre will always be something ambiguous because their definition are always subjective.


This is not an accurate portrayal of games because of how strict the web is for instance you have modded maps in csgo the mic a walking simulator with rhythm hence you can surf basically the only thing holding you back is your mind and as long as you start of graphing or charting in such simple strict terms you are limiting you’re options for games >>57822


alright so warcraft 3 is every genre on that list… yeah, that would be annoying. i can see why you would omit modded content from categorization


>if you control multiple characters in an rpg and there is no permadeath you must either play a jrpg or an earthbound-like


Surely the application of a mod would be a separate classification. Like the base game is classified X, but with this mod it's classified Y.

Play Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Second to only Xenoblade Chronicles X.

>buzzwords buzzwords buzzwords


Yeah I will because it actually looks really good. But xenoblade games are far too fucking long and it's probably better to just wait for the expansion pass to finish releasing anyway.


>I disagree with your because you're wrong!


no switch and can't be arsed emulating
is x a good entry point into the series? i might try that on cemu


The mechanics in X can be obtuse and the game can be a little overwhelming to start with but yes it's fine place to start although it doesn't really have any relation to the other games.

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

Thanks for this
Just finished it
Although it did get a bit repetitive towards the end missions, when you had figured out the perfect way to build your city
But great game nonetheless


I own Halo Infinite on both PC and Console and honestly playing using a controller is way better, aiming is better on PC but every other action is a fucking chore, the controller is great and the game itself is designed around controllers.


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


Bought dead island 2 I’d say it’s worth it was hoping to be open world but they voted against it in the end

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.

Nah San Andreas onward, it plays very similar to SA

Finished Talos Principle and its DLCs
It's pretty good
Except for that stupid moon landing puzzle, fuck that

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.


Danganronpa 1-3 and Phoenix wright AA.

Danganronpa is just irredeemable shit, that gets stupider and more formulaic as time goes on. No idea why there is such a big social media fandom for these games, the murders are usually ridiculous and the characters are poorly written. Only interesting thing was the first game setting and that eventually got destroyed as well.

Phoenix Wright didn't exactly draw me in either. The cases are long and hard to deduce with all the twists, and the cross-examinations mechanic just seemed rather trivial. Edgeworth was the only really stand-out character in the cast


here's everything I've beaten so far in May.

A Winters Daydream - really short but decent VN about grandma that becomes qt young succubus again for a day was a solid 7/10

Mimana Iyar Chronicles - random encounters really took this game from a potential 8 down to a 6. Decent enough story but the encounter rate is gross

Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen - Flawless 10/10

Lunar Silver Star Story - solid 9/10 kinda generic story but told wonderfully

Psycho Pass Mandatory Happiness - only did one route so far but decent enough 7/10

YS: Origin - Only completed 1/3 routes so far but 9/10 boss fights are pretty tough making it very rewarding to beat

Punchline - about halfway through so far but I'd give it a 7.5, silly fan service and pretty decent story
