Now that I think of it, that 'too much water' meme makes sense, have the people making fun of that review played the games? A shame that the HM are still a problem in the remake, most puzzles involving them in Emerald are nothing but a waste of time.

Now that I have gotten to the tutorial that unlocks ki pulse things are more reasonable. I don't even have to use ki pulse and now I get like double the hits you have in the initial opener. I hate it when they start you off in a game with all your abilities gimped. I picked odachi and dual swords as my preferred weapons but I am enjoying tonfa the most. I also like that sickle thing on the chain. Only one I really don't like are the spears so far.

The only multiplayer games I even play now days are MORPGs and CS:GO.
I don't even play proper MMOs anymore.

It's not even that I totally dislike playing with people. It's just that I like single player games more. I feel like I can do things at my own pace and don't have to do shit to keep up with the meta.
I just still play CS:GO out of habit in low stress unranked matches. Also use the bots as target practice, which is kinda fun.

I managed to ally Timurids, a bit worried about making them too strong. Once they get my institution they will be a great power. We fought Delhi, Gujarat and Malwa. I am now the dominant power in India. Just a few dev from becoming great power.
First I focused on Gujarat and Malwa and only leaving the southern front to defend forts. After completely occupying then peacing them out I went up to Delhi while their troops were all in Timurid land. Timurids peaced out after sitting their troops around, getting me out of my promise of land to them. I took 2/3 of Delhi's forts and all but two provinces without any fight. I peaced out when their 24K+ troops got near.

Now I have to worry about a coalition. I'm mostly going to be focused inward for the next decade.

For real though, all the historical tropes are actually true in EUIV.

Keep that goddam fort in Luxembourg–I don't know why because it's just a wooded province like any other, but EVERY ENEMY piles on their troops on Luxembourg and you end up getting woods+crossing bonuses when you counterattack.

Don't go on the offensive against Russia in the winter.

Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires.

France never seems to die.

All the crucial naval battles happen around Gibraltar or Malta.

I know you didnt explicitly ask for recommendations but a recommendation cant hurt and could give you something fun to play so id recommend Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (or freedom 2 they are very similar but unite has a few more monsters and features and cat companions to fight alongside) probably my favourite game for the PS2 and i enjoyed it so much i thought id atleast recommend it so that you might have the same positive experience with it that i did. i was addicted to another game when MH world came out so i didnt play much of it so cant accurately say whether its a great deal better than world but i definitely enjoyed MHFU. thanks for indirectly reminding me to give world more of a play :)

Managed to win the wars with tons of mercs over force limit. I ended up taking a single province from the coalition, and taking all but one of Afghanistan (turned over to vassal Khorasan). My situation is not over though, I have to handle bankruptcy now. I'm maxxed out on loans already but I'll have to prolong it by debasing currency/selling land to estates. Now to protect myself while bankrupt I'm going to need to wait for my current truces to end then wage wars again to rest during truces.
War pro-tip: stop enemies from carpet sieging by sending a stack of troops nearby.
I've force-converted my vassal Khorasan. I don't need to worry about Timurids being too strong after they took the brunt of two wars as my ally. I can easily expand there with Khorasan's cores.

Fun fact: Mewar was the last place widow burning (sati) was legal.

Man there sure are a lot of lethal options in MGS V, I always found that curious in stealth games, that you have stuff like shotguns, explosives, machine guns… I mean, having options is nice, but does anyone play games like Hitman or MGS like shooters, killing anything that gets in the way?

I'm still playing nioh. Is it just me or do low and high stances suck? I have pretty much started to ignore them entirely after some initial experimentation. I know you will get more ki for switching stances with one perk enabled but I hope it doesn't become necessary for me to rely on that because of how inferior those stances are to mid stance.

 No.54841

>>54840
All the stances are good. They have strong strengths and weaknesses.

 No.54858

>>54841
Can you elaborate in which situations you use them? I get that high stance is supposed to be for dealing heavy damage, but it's also slow as fuck so I can hit less times, meanwhile my ki takes a much bigger hit. I can just go down to mid stance and hit one more time, deal basically the same amount of damage, and have more ki to dodge away and/or block. Low stance on the other hand just sucks because the block sucks and it takes longer for every fight because of the reduced damage. With lower dps weapons it's a nightmare. I haven't really gotten into using the skill points for shit yet though beyond the basics, are there skills that make the stances more useful?

 No.54862

>>54858
There’s skills that make it so switching stances during ki pulse makes you recover more, but that’s hard to pull off and frankly unnecessary.

Each stance is a little different because it changes by weapon, but generally you use high stance to hit hard. This a more useful if you can be sure your hits will stagger the enemy so you don’t have to dodge. High stance also usually hits physically higher on the hit box so it’s good for breaking horns or other weak points, which will stagger enemies and sometimes even let you grapple them. Mid stance’s main thing is blocking, otherwise it just depends on if you like the move set of your weapon’s mid. Low is good for dodging. You use less ki to dodge and you can do it twice in a row while maintaining the quick dodge instead of slow rolling. Low also usually hits faster/more so it’s pretty good at applying statuses if you want to do that.

There’s a pretty good amount of depth in the game considering all the tools they give you in terms of both mechanics and abilities. A lot of the upgrades are pretty meaningful and give you new moves, so look at what they do first. Don’t worry about misallocating though because you get a pretty decent amount of skill reset items so you can redistribute both your skill points and level up points.

I've been trying to play X6 and my god it is fucking trash. The story makes no sense at all, once again more literally who characters pretending like they were part of the plot at some point. The stages are godawful, filled janky puzzles, platforming ranging from tedious to straight pointless that makes you wonder why it is even there, and bullet spam all over that just makes you go "fuck it" and just jump through the short stage as fast as possible relying on i-frames, you'll be missing some health but the bosses are a joke.

I had gone through 4 maverick stages and was kinda getting annoyed at how awful the game was but thought whatever, but then I tried blaze heatnix's stage and I just gave up. I thought the other stages were awful but this just takes the cake, there is no stage, it's just annoying as hell mini-boss after annoying as hell mini-boss. I've played every other megaman game and I never just stopped playing, but I dont think I can take this, it's horrible, complete and utter trash. How capcom went from X5 to this is beyond comprehension. This is the worst megaman game I have ever played.

I think of how good X1 and X2 were, even X3, X4, and X5 weren't so bad, and I wonder, is this even the same series anymore? How do you go from a great formula with great stages and great bosses to this?

I'm playing Baldur's Gate and it's as good as people say it is. Truly a beautiful, immersive video game, nice experience. Unfortunately it's making me very depressed about the fact I have to play this shit instead of having the balls to get a mic and play some actual D&D. I guess video games is the only alternative for those with social anxiety.

What exactly do you like about X6? Going from X5 it is just completely retarded. X5 felt like a giant finale and end to the X series, Capcom could have lead into another spin-off (elf wars?) which would take place between the X and the Zero series and feature just X wielding his buster and Zero's saber. In X5 Zero uses his last bit of energy, his last buster shot, to kill Sigma, the guy they've been fighting for the last 5 games. But then in X6 it's just like thrown completely out the window… Zero? you repaired yourself??? what??????? like three quarters of your body was destroyed Zero, your brain was malfunctioning, how the heck did you repair yourself? That whole bit just really annoyed me, the moment where it seems like in X4-X5 capcom is trying to build up a little story for the X series they just throw it out the window. On top of the bad gameplay the whole thing just feels insulting.

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

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
