Playing Parasite Eve. The combat is really fun, one of the best combats in horror. Been a very enjoyable game so far. It's quite disgusting, which is fun.

The only horror game that I ever played was the "SCP - Containment Breach". Well, I also played Resident evil 4, but i can't consider it a horror game.

RE4 is survival horror. It's very horror until the castle area.

>>51462
RE3 doesn't do anything different. It's a by the book Western game which no one wanted. It's linear, full of bad set pieces and all the characters are unlikeable. Nemesis barely chases you and when he is in the game he teleports around so you're not really chased.

The grandfather of survival horror games, the inspiration for Resident Evil, truly an all time classic.

Why is everyone so split on this game? Even today, many people can't decide if it's an underrated classic, or if it always terrible.

There's kind of a delicate balancing act between making your game too cryptic and too straightforward. In Super Metroid, it's very calculated so that you figure out where you are supposed to go right as you are hitting the point of frustration. The game reduces the frustration by placing optional secrets everywhere so that you can feel like you are making progress. Many problems can be solved by looking closely at the map or using the x-ray scope. You can beat the whole game in ten-ish hours without a guide which is just barely long enough. The game came out in the mid-nineties so 2d action gameplay and exploration had been honed down to a science. Most people reach the point of frustration faster than I do which is why "metroidvanias" are a niche genre.

My impression of Castlevania 2 is that it's not merely cryptic to the point of not being fun, it is actually broken and unplayable.

>>53823
1 is okay. Igor and Frankenstein requires either considerable skill or dumb luck to beat so I am always tempted to turn the game off at level 4. The best way to beat Death is to scummily jump and throw holy water at him. It is a very short game but I don't imagine the trial and error required to figure out how to defeat certain bosses would be fun. 2 is obviously bullshit. 3 is hard to the point that many would say it is bullshit as well. I don't think I could safely recommend a game in the series to somebody before 4. Every game in the series is probably more forgiving than Contra.

Normalfags love it, my brother for instance told me something along the lines of "It's like an anime series without the ridiculous Japanese stuff". Then he told me he wished they'd make a videogame out of the series, I am not joking, he said that "the world is big and interesting to make a game in the style of the Witcher".
And they ask me why I wear headphones all day.

Dunkey made a video criticizing the writing in the new Ratchet and Clank. The writing to me seems very consistent with past Insomniac games going all the way back to Spyro the Dragon. Contrast Insomniac with Naughty Dog and you will see that the studio that tried to "evolve" and elevate the medium of video games to the same heights as cinema has failed disastrously and the studio that stayed true to its roots, and didn't follow in the footsteps of Naughty Dog like so many other developers, is one of the only western studios still producing technically competent and playable games.

I'm pretty stoked, I don't really play vidya much anymore, but dark souls is something I still get the slight urge to play. Don't even really care if its just dark souls cloned all over again, I'll play it anyways fuck it. In-fact I would prefer another clone of dark souls, the more the merrier.

What I will say is that I'm a bit upset they went for the open world meme, I just wanted DS1 level design, DS2 pvp, and DS3 enemy design in one game. Hopefully From don't fuck up the open world, I kind of imagine they will though.

I've been trying new genres of games and as a lower skilled player the only thing that allows me to try these games in multiplayer is SBMM. I've tried games in the same genre without it, and the difference of what my true level is is palpable. I've been reading forum threads to see what the normies think about it. And one thing I've learned is that the type of gamers who post on forums, are usually not your typical average gamer, but more hardcore just to care enough to post. So often their complaints might be the opposite for a casual noob like me, and actually be to my benefit.

Its just an interesting exercise in hypocrisy and the golden rule with the SBMM bitching. They don't like being hunted by the sharks, but complain that they can't have a "casual relaxing" game of hunting guppies. Theres no self-awareness of staring into the mirror, of what a hell being around people like themselves is.

I used to have this fantasy of all the Nietzschean ubermen, will to power, will to dominate types being sent to their own Mad Max island where they can dominate each other. Wolves eating wolves. But it seems its not every fun to be on a diet of wolfmeat, they need some nonconsenting sheep too. I've seen some proposals for a more voluntary SBMM. But the self-aware among them, admit that most casuals would choose it, and so they'd still be in the same box. Basically they want casuals to be forced to play with them.

It just fascinating to see in the gaming world, how ubermen feel about being sent to my Mad Max island where wolves can only eat other wolves.

>When you hav a good understanding of FPS mechanics you laugh at this because the skill gap and skill ceiling with gunplay in COD has been made as small as possible. You WILL miss because random recoil that does not follow average expectations within certain ranges AKA truly random.
I played against a professional COD team it is ALL tactics to the point it may as well be a strategy game and this is because the gunplay is so shit that anyone good is a master.

unironically the reason I like CoD. I play CSGO when I want truly skilled FPS.

Battlefield is shit overall and panders too much to demographics that don't even play the game.

Bad Company 2 was a blast. I don't care if it wasn't "real Battlefield," the high degree of environmental destruction meant some maps never bored me, I'd always run into new fun situations.
Haven't played the series since EA fucked me when I bought BF3 and couldn't play online even once since something on their side fucked up my battlelog account. EA support was fucking atrocious if they even responded at all. Tried to get them to do anything for months but they were all 80IQ hindu and paki shits who couldn't even comprehend what the problem was, retards kept defaulting to their standard flowchart and insisted I had to reset my modem or some shit.
How's the destruction going to be in this one? Still limited to mere decorations and predetermined set pieces for a shitty cinematic experience?

Steel fury is my favorite tank sim, and definitely the best WW2 tank sim.

I suggest installing the Japanese Community Patch Mod for it, the recent STAs are payed and from the looks of it, the mod forum is gone.

This is a thread for sharing free game deals you find on the Internet.
Not free games, but specifically promos or ways of getting legit keys of otherwise non-free games.

You can get Watch Dogs for free if you install Uplay (Ubisoft's platform), launch it and click on the banner advertisement.
It's unclear how long this promo will last.
