off-topic i personally find razer products are alright, my stuff is now over 5 years old. all ive had to do so far is take mouse apart to solder on a new left click button, and it has looked like absolute shit ever since but it works fine. the headset broke at one of the connection between the band and the earpiece, but i used jbweld to fix that

on-topic i played taur today. i thought i was in a tutorial mode or something, but nothing new happened when i reached 100% in the campaign, you just keep fighting battles, and no new tutorial info popped up. i hate the controls for that game. left clcik for your main attack, mouse move to aim around… it's like a pure mouse/aiming game most of the time… but they put the secondary attack not on the mouse but F or something. weird. one of those games where maybe the idea of it is more interesting than the actual game

I'm playing pic related, I'm at the part when you arrive to Atlanta after Joe gets brutally murdered by Abby I would say that the game is OK at this point, it pretty much plays like the 1st game and is not as controversial or bad as I thought (just a bit of lesbianism and some minor Jewish scene) the game is fine, I don't think it's a masterpiece or anything (the 1st one was a good game but not a masterpiece by any measure) It's good, it's fun and I'm having a good time.

Maybe things will change later on but for now I'm satisfied.

I've been playing megaman powered up, it's a decent game, if a bit easy, the only thing is the controls are godawful; megaman feels extremely slippery in this title and I don't like it at all. If you've played the original megaman games you'll know every single one after 2 has had very tight and precise controls. You could say the controls are rightfully slippery because megaman 1 had kinda slippery controls, but I don't think it's comparable; megaman 1 feels bearable, but this, hardly.

genesis alpha one is cool for a few hours. quickly figured out the solution to infestations appearing randomly on the ship. you just build ship with a single max length corridor and have everything coming from that. so as you run back and forth you inevitably hear the noise from aliens and can eliminate them before they cause problems. also tons of turrets and shields alone the corridor and doors. anywhere that your robots go, like to pick up things at x or drop them off at x, there is a chance it spawns aliens. also in the tractor beam room, and hangar. so just put turret in all those places and it stops them from spawning essentially. i liked the idea of this game a lot, but it's really just some indie game without much depth. it could easily receive updates/dlc and become vastly more fun, but i dont think that will happen. hopefully a bigger game with similar mechanics will eventually be made

Tried Days Gone and played it for 2 days straight very thoroughly but uninstalled yesterday. I can't say I hated this game but there were a lot very annoying elements. It is also very boring and uninspired. Developers wanted to copypaste Witcher 3 and were not holding themselves back, except their open world is very secondary, locations are not interesting, enemies are generic without any variety. Characters are not memorable and their lines are very unnatural but maybe it is because rural american culture is very alien to me.
I was surprised that this game doesn't look censored and there were a lot of brutal, violent scenes. There is cold blooded stabbing and cutting, hanged people, beaten people etc. I do not enjoy looking at such things but don't mind it either, it is reality, especially when everything is in chaos. But why does our MC kills everything in sight, including the same drifters who mindlessly attack him is something I didn't understand. I think they should not be enemies by default.
In general I thought this is a very boring, grey game which doesn't have anything that can motivate the player to finish it. I personally did not care about anything that happened during my adventures.
Completely subjective of course. Has anyone on this board played it too?

Just got around to part 3 of the story in pso2.

According to the steam achievements most steam users really don't bother with the story mode.

It isn't great and it has major pacing issues but they throw star gems and titles at you for suffering through it and it adds context to things. Plus some of the characters are more interesting then they first appear.

Like the ingame idol/pop star having a double life as a secret agent supersoldier
Or Risa the ranger trainer turns out to be capable of pretty deep insights and has come to the conclusion that the best way of life is to be true to ones self, which in her case is a unapologetic gun crazy kill bot who revels in the suffering of those driven before her (favorite character so far).

I probably should be focusing on leveling stuff but whatever.
Even on "hardcore" the story gives fuck all exp. Which is probably why no one does it even if they are into this melodramatic jrpg bullshit kind of story.

Whatever, I mainly stick around for the world building and boss fights when it comes to the story.
Smacking around dark falz or whatever they are called is fun.
Can't wait to beat the snot out of Gemini, they seem to be the next big bad on the asskicking chopping block.


Also the SAO crossover is going on so damn near every male PC running around looks like Kirito, which it pretty lame.
Did appreciate them getting the voice actors over and it's clear effort was put into this crossover event so even if I think SAO was kind of a shitshow I can't complain too much.

Has anyone here played Megaman extensively? I am obsessed with this series, it's possibly the most fun video game I've ever played. These are the only games that I've come back to to beat multiple times, and I'm currently in the process of beating one of the newer entries. I wish there were more games that replicated the classic series, I'm not really a big fan of X-style Megaman, though the X-spinoff Zero series has really fun bosses.

Play 2, 3 and four regularly on Famicom. Usually 4, since it is so easy, but has almost as good levels and music as 2.

X2 I've finished once on SFC and it is good, but already has unnecessary new gameplay elements.

If you like the difficulty of 2 and the style, try playing Taito's Power Blazer, which was released heavily modified (in the process losing the difficulty) as Power Blade in the West. Music - which is great - is the same, but the similary to RM/MM is lost because of style change.

 No.53507

Ok, I just played through power blazer, I didn't really like it. My biggest issue was that upgrades/drops can actually make your weapon harder to use, and it's already really janky in the first place. Other than that the bosses were pretty simple, the dragon boss in particular was just awful. Stages were not very complex, straight hallways with an enemy or two every once in a while, also some simple disappearing block sections in a couple levels. Most of the trouble I had traversing the levels was just due to the floaty controls combined with poor contrast between back and foreground textures, some bad hitboxes, and pixel perfect jumps. I think the quality of megaman 2 greatly surpasses power blazer in pretty much every aspect, they are both non-linear jump and shoot type games but that's as far as similarities go in my opinion.

Rockman 2 surely is a better game and especially more polished one, no doubt.

Normal weapon is better against some enemies and the super against others, but you can beat all enemies and bosses with either without great difficulty.

The controls are tight and very simple. There is few parts where pixel perfect jumps are needed, as there is in RM2.

Pretty much only major level feature not found in Power Blazer that is in Rockman 2 is the trap part of Quickman-level.

The bosses in 'normal' levls are more varied in design and style of attacks compared to robot masters in RM2. The more complex boss battles are to be found in the Dr. Wily levels and there is, what, four?.
Compared to that, there is only final boss level in the Power Blazer, which has a double boss fight, first one which is very similar to the disappearing yellow turd found in the first level.

I don't find any contrast problem with original hardware, AV Fami outputting to CRT. Maybe the parts where there is sky blue background, I could see the player character blending because of similar colors of background and character, but there is obviously similar 'problem' in pretty much all Fami/NES RM/MM's.

There isn't any 'hitbox' problems related to enemies, only in the doors and ladders, which require you to be exactly at the middle of them.
Some if not all of the bosses do not indigate any health loss with sound or anything else and that can be confusing, especially in the beehive boss.

Humanoid robot fighting against more animalistic robots, futuristic levels with many similarities, some evil human siccing these robots against the Utopian society. I see many similarities to Rockman/Megaman.
Latter have much more weapons, gained from robot masters, but which are mostly useless or not needed (except in one Dr. Wily boss, just like in 4's final Wily fight).
Since there is no sliding or megabuster in 2, the basic gameplay mechanics are just as simple.


Plus, they both have amazing music.

>you can beat all enemies and bosses with either without great difficulty.
I believe that for every boss except the dragon, as soon as you enter its boss room it can instantly fly into you and damage you and there is no way to know when it will do a high jump or a low roll, only way I beat it was just spamming short range red boomerang and using a health tank
>The controls are tight and very simple. There is few parts where pixel perfect jumps are needed, as there is in RM2.
I wouldn't call the controls tight, they were just 'ok', somewhere in between super mario and megaman, I had trouble inching the character forward like is possible in every megaman game
>Pretty much only major level feature not found in Power Blazer that is in Rockman 2 is the trap part of Quickman-level.
Well, most of the stuff in power blazer was just extremely simplified versions of stuff you could find in any megaman NES title, for example the yoku blocks in power blazer were just used as a hazard with no puzzle or memorization aspect like what you could find in megaman
>The bosses in 'normal' levels are more varied in design and style of attacks compared to robot masters in RM2
Most of the bosses are really slow with a simple pattern, I hardly felt moments where I needed to pay much attention, a boss was either a kill as fast as possible boss or a boss where you have to bait, wait, jump and shoot, repeat
>I don't find any contrast problem with original hardware
I got used to it after playing a little while, but there were a lot of points in the game where I couldn't tell if a block was a piece of scenery or a background and ended up in a pit, I definitely never had that problem in any megaman game
>There isn't any 'hitbox' problems related to enemies
I was thinking of one part in particular with the falling spike ceiling on a chain things (basically metalman spikes), there is an inconsistency where you can slightly clip into the side of the spike while it's going up without getting hit but then get hit when it falls down, also it wasn't intuitive right away on how to approach these spikes because you'll notice part of your head can clip into them without damaging you
>Some if not all of the bosses do not indigate any health loss with sound or anything else
Yeah that was awful, I had to watch a video on youtube to make sure I was actually doing any damage, no idea why there isn't a health bar for the bosses
>Humanoid robot fighting against more animalistic robots, futuristic levels with many similarities, some evil human siccing these robots against the Utopian society. I see many similarities to Rockman/Megaman.
Sure, they have a similar theme, but they play a lot differently, power blazer surely lacking in polish
>Latter have much more weapons, gained from robot masters, but which are mostly useless or not needed
Arguable, the only real useless weapon in megaman 2 is crash bomb, the rest I find have their place(s) for clever usage

I've been playing megaman X3 for literally the entire day and I think I'm ready to put it down now. I'm at the final boss and I can say that this game is insanely difficult, X1 and X2 come nowhere close to this level of difficulty. In X3 everything does a crap ton of damage to you and enemies are placed in levels in such a way that it punishes you for trying to go fast, which is annoying. Common enemies in stages are no longer dumb cannon fodder, they will dodge your attacks or put up shields. Maverick weapons I actually ended up using a lot more than any other megaman game just because it felt like the game was designed around them, each weapon has more than enough ammo and are for the most part great at clearing levels. There is a system in the game where you get to collect some ride armor which you can spawn in at certain pads in levels, I thought this is stupid, I never really used it except to wiz through a few screens without care because operating the ride armor basically makes you invulnerable. All in all I think X3 is a decline in quality from the previous iterations, everything about it is just wrong, I wouldn't be surprised if the design work done on this was outsourced.

I just finished playing both of the DLCs for The Witcher 3. I'm impressed at just how much content there was. The only real disappointment was the rune crafting stuff. I paid a boat load of gold to upgrade his tools and ultimately none of the enhancements looked better than the alternate of just putting runestones/glyphs into the slots. I wish I could live in toussaint, it's so beautiful.

Been playing Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous Beta 2. Despite terrible amount of bugs (it is a beta after all) and tedious, stupidly implemented armies and battle system (something like very primitive Heroes of Might and Magic), I greatly enjoyed the game and on full release it should be much better than the first one.
The illusion of choice is very well made. The story changes depending on what mythic powers you choose. I played through beta twice, first time I chose Trickster, there were special dialogue options and NPCs reacted to my choice. Didn't finish the playthrough because of bugged quest.
Next one was a evil demon playthrough. Mythic quests were different, instead of being invited to the council of tricksters I was abducted by enemy demoness and then saved by succubi queen Nocticula, who became my patron and in general plays important role in the fourth act, it really impacts the story. In the Trickster playthrough I had to bust my ass to Nocticula senpai to notice me and grant me an audience, in the second it was a breeze.
Companions are better than they were in Kingmaker. Didn't like the nigger paladin, and the nigger faggot cleric was whining to much, but Wenduag, Camellia, Daeran, Arueshalae and the tiefling thief were interesting.

Yeah, i have. It is a good game, very long, like 140 hours or so, but enjoyable. The combat is fucking hard sometimes, pre-buffing your entire party to survive a battle will be necessary later on, it can get tedious. Time limits on quests are also retarded, but you get used to it. Companions are a bit bland. Liked the tiefling sisters, you can even make a three way romance with them, which was interesting.
I recommend playing it. But Wrath of the Righteous will be much better once it is done.
However, the taint of modernity is rather obvious in both games. Shit like feminism and homosexuality are subtly promoted, and in the Wrath there are even lesbian spymaster and half orc lesbian military leader that are married. But I guess that can't be avoided in the western games nowadays.

I'm playing it right now too This game is way too long for no real reason. Basically the same gameplay loop as the first one (except you encounter more human ennemies than zombies) but for 30 hours of gameplay. I'll start rushing through the rest of the game now. TLOU 1 was bearable because it was short, I'm already bored with Part II and I'm just halfway through. Also, I think the plot is less intresting than the first one.

No exp. with Razer but I'm disappointed with "le gaming" label in general after buying a gaming mouse and a keyboard (firm is ZET GAMING; I think it's middle-ish in price/quality) and having them both fail after just 15 months, almost right after their 1-year warranty expires. Didn't abuse them or anything, didn't use that much at all in fact.
Now it's a wireless set by Microsoft. 3-year warranty, much less wires, convenient for chair/bed switching, works just fine. Haven't tried it in speed-sensible gaming but really I'm not even that good to feel the extra quick response or something.

Decided to play Ghost Recon: Wildlands and spent the last 3 days in it (offline campaign). It is a third-person shooter sandbox, set in Bolivia (though I don't know how authentic the map is). Gameplay is very repetitive in a manner of "tower capturing", but I think it is not boring because there is good attention to details. Shooting and weapon handling feels good, there are fun and satisfying combat situations and good special ops vibe overall. If you like military genre, customization, really existing weapons, open-world, crouching, taking out assholes with silenced weapons, amushing etc., give it a try. There are a lot of weapons and gear. There is a lot of brutality, and it's pretty graphic scenes in this game, like torture, hanging, dismemberment etc. I can't say this game is difficult but it still requires at least primitive tactical approach because shitters will scream, alert, call for backup in any suspicious situation. I'm playing on a high difficulty and they kill me instantly, the same way as I kill them, mostly one-shot, so it's fair. Cartel higher ups are charismatic and more or less well-made as characters, I think. Not too forced. I am sure devs were taking a lot of inspiration from "Sicario". Voice acting is good, gangsters and military sound believable to me.

Cons: dead bodies disappear quickly for some reason; AI could be better and it would be a pretty hard game in this case; thin walls, like wooden ones can't be shot through (maybe mistaken). Some other insignificant cons but I don't remember. Graphics engine is good but not very impressive. Physics are average, especially when driving.
I think it's a good game with a big budget if you enjoy such themes and non-intrusive wandering around.

After wading through tons of garbage on epic's game deals I finally found Far Cry 3 for $3. It's supposed to be the best of the series so I bought it and started playing it. It really brings home just how little graphics have actually advanced in the last 10 years. It's perfectly immersive even if things aren't quite as polished as they are now. The only thing that is really bugging me is how the game keeps trying to connect to servers without being able to every time I pause.

Playing Griftlands. I wasn't expecting to like it but I am, although I wish they hadn't changed it from a proper RPG into a fucking roguelite card game halfway through development. There's 3 different characters to play with different campaigns but they're all 4 or 5 hours long and feel like prologues to an actual game that never starts. I guess this is supposed to be offset by the inherent replayability of a roguelite, and while I have managed to build up some really fun decks I still don't think the gameplay is nearly good enough for what it's trying to do. The genre of game they've decided to make runs completely at odds with their attempt to tell a story and as a result the whole thing is just neutered. I really wish they had just stuck to making a real video game instead of settling for a fifth of one and letting RNG and procedural generation handle the rest. I hate trends.

I almost forgot to add, the soundtrack at least for combat and negotiation is beautiful. Each character has different music fitting for their personalities and all the soundtracks have multiple variations that play depending on the length of the fight and if either you or your opponents are low on health. Very satisfying to take a chunk off an enemy's healthbar and listen to the music flare up in reaction.

I just recently dropped my second attempt at playing through it for the same reason. Great writing and voice acting but there's just so much fucking downtime and the uptime isn't fun enough to be worth all the waiting. It was the second time that I got right around halfway through the game and burned out. I also think at around the point that I quit the game starts throwing way too many contacts and sub-plotlines at you all at the same time, the pacing is not very good. Always either too slow or too fast.

This script hits the keyboard media keys to raise or lower volume, save to thing.ps1 and run it. You may need to do set-executionpolicy remotesigned to permit execution of local powershell scripts beforehand. I would try:

$a = new-object -com wscript.shell

in a powershell prompt first, which should mute sound, as a proof of concept. If that doesn't work try the other solutions in the SO link.

The most annoying thing is that the button to talk to someone and the button to point your gun at someone are the same button and it makes it annoying to try and do either of those things because I invariably end up doing the opposite of what I want to do. The context options that you are presented with are not consistent, sometimes you can press right mouse then left to draw your weapon, at other times pressing right mouse will just make you focus on the person with no option to draw the weapon and you have to use the weapon wheel. Also it's impossible to keep your weapons equipped, they keep unequipping automatically and I have to reequip them in the weapon wheel over and over again. There are also a lot of temporary quests with no indicator on when they expire and if you do one of them the others will often be expired by the time you're done that one. Then there's all the unskippable cutscenes for things you have to do over and over and the food eating which add nothing to the game but make it more annoying. People say the witcher 3 has bad controls but I found RDR2 to be way worse.

Man. I'm glad you enjoy that game so much but BotW is such a spit in the face of the old fans such as myself. That is not a Zelda game in anyway and now there's a sequel to it. It's clear this is the path they're taking for those games now and if you liked the old games, well, fuck you. We don't need you anymore, all the kids love our openworld shit now. I feel like the past few years so many games franchises dropped the ball on me.

Same happened with Fallout 76. I've been playing it since Fallout 2 came out and even defended the 4 and 5 turds from the people who got pissed with Bethesda. Then they pretty much killed whatever faith people like me had left with an online game. Again, it's clear they don't give a fuck.

Another series that decided to tell me to go fuck yourself is the Total War games, which is something I never saw it coming. The main games are now completely focused on that warhammer shit. Don't get me wrong, I kinda like warhammer lore and all but holy shit it's all they care about now. Word is they're currently working on ANOTHER one of those. Jesus fuck, those warhammer fans are so used to spend their money like retards on minis and whatever thing with warhammer written on it that Sega will just keep pumping warhammer games for those guys from here to fucking eternity, it's awful.

It's not easy when he flees after one turn and you miss your only shot. Anyway I beat the game yesterday, it's inferior in almost every way to SMT3 but still very good. Unlike Nocturne I kinda liked the characters this time, although they managed to sneak in the infamous power of friendship trope in the end… and am I wrong in expecting it to get worse in the sequel? It sure does look that way. Anyhow that cliffhanger made me want to see more, so it's not like a complete turnoff so far as the writing goes…
The worst aspect of the game is probably the dungeon design imo. The last one especially was such a chore to go through, and most of the puzzles are nothing but a complete waste of time. I hope this is something that was improved in DDS2.

I'm on 6-2 now which is pure cock and ball torture. I have avoided looking at a guide or savescumming. I have allowed myself to pause the game to take breaks. This last section requires you to land on small platforms about the size of a postcard that also have enemies on top of them. You have to land at the exact right instant and basically kiss the enemy on the lips before killing them. There are ninjas with jetpacks that fly at you and throw shurikens everywhere that knock you into instant death pits.

Alright, if you manage to get to the boss with this weapon and a few "spirit points" (I thik 15) you can kill each phase in pretty much a single hit (or jump).

The song goes automatically if you wait too long so the moon is never an actual thing that will kill you, but it does reset some progress every time it goes off.

Having a lot of fun with Destroy all Humans.
The explosions are fantastic in hd and I dig the updated art style. Gameplay is solid and there is just enough story to keep things going. I don't know how far I am in, but I am 7 hours in and could easily see myself enjoy another 7 hours without getting sick of the game.

>Feels like I am about to run out of time on an exam or something when I play it
It does feel that way unless you use the inverted song of time, then you actually have to try to run out of time.

I have never played the Zelda Wind Waker-remaster for Wii-U so I started it earlier this year on the cemu-emulator and it's been even more fun than I expected, only this year there is the Zelda-anniversary going on, so I am torn between waiting for a potential switch-remake or just keep playing.
They didn't announce anything at their E3-direct though, do you think there is still a chance they will release it this year?

What would a WW remake be like? A mere port of the remaster would be more likely, wouldn't it?

 No.54148

You're right there would be no reason to remake the WiiU-version at all, you don't even need the pad to play. Maybe I'll stick to the emulated version as long as it's running smoothly, if anything the game on the switch won't look as nice anyway.

Skyward Sword is getting a remaster for the Switch. I wouldn't put faith in Nintendo to port the WW and TP remakes to the Switch. If anything they might bundle in some classic games and sell them as a pack

Have you heard anything about a remake? I've seen the remaster getting a release date, honestly the game still looks great on an emulator with higher resolution.

The cutscenes in Digital Devil Saga 2 are starting to annoy me a bit. I like the characters and all but come on, do they to drag on forever like that? I'm probably being unfair, I guess this is one of the more story driven SMT game, excluding the Persona series?

You made me want to replay Wind Waker. How well does it run on CEMU compared to the original on Dolphin? Did they add anything like a new difficulty mode, worthwhile content?

I have been playing Kingdom Come Deliverance lately. It's a masterpiece. It's the first first-person game I've played that I've really enjoyed. I don't really like shooters I guess, but this is great. It feels super immersive. 70 hours in and I have basically maxxed out my equipment and put bane potion on all my weapons and when I come across a group of armed guys I just tackle them all and take only the best weight to price ratio equipment from their corpses after I'm done with them.

This game gives a super sense of progression from when you start out as a noob with no armor who will easily get overpowered by most opponents to the point where you're a badass, and at all times it stays within the believable bounds of what is possible in real combat. If I see six heavily armored guys I'm gonna steer clear of them or wait until night to ambush them even now because I know I would lose without save scumming. Save scumming is fun in this game though not gonna lie because you can fight the same group of opponents over and over until you finally beat them.

I'm at Ganon's lair (whatever it's called) in LttP. I'm feeling that late-game fatigue and the sections with invisible floors aren't helping.

is it only me or are a lot of perks useless in this game?

There are some good ones and some useless ones with more useless ones than most games. You could probably play the game without any of them and it would be just fine, you'd just have lower stats.

iirc some of them sounded utterly terrible like it made you wonder who came up with this, and who thought anyone would pick them from their description. some games have useless/situational perks but they may not look that way on paper, while in kc:d you can tell they are fucking shit. perhaps this is for the best.

hunt showdown. i got it on sale a long time ago and play it every other day. you go to compounds on the map to find clues to find boss locations, defeat the boss, banish it, defend it meanwhile, then take bounties and extract. there are mobs all over and choosing fights agaisnt certain ones and sneaking around others and trying to be quiet is part of the fun. there are other people on the map doing the same thing so you eventually run into other players and fight them. it's a very unforgiving game that rewards being paranoid and sneaky. it's hard to play as solo, i have to basically initiate fights against duos where i immediately get a kill so it becomes a 1v1… if it fails i back off and reengage from another angle until i can level the field. quite a bit of weapons to choose from to suit a variety of playstyles. i like the silenced guns and to fight from a distance so they can't hear where i'm shooting from, this makes it so i can attack from a single spot for a while without having to constantly move after a miss. there are way more hardcore games but i like hunt a lot

Playing fan-made 1 vs 1 fighting games using the MUGEN engine.

I hate that there's no major fighting game that uses sprites now;only the indie ones do it. Funny thing is that it's 3DCG character models but gameplay is *still* 2d.

Had a fun time with Jet Island.
It's a game where you are on a hover board with rockets and grappling hooks on your wrist as you speed around a island and occasionally blow up bosses.

It's not a complex game but it's a blast in vr. Still getting the hang of it but I like it.

no hate intended, but it's pretty amusing to me how fans of this game market it as a "HARDCORE SHOOTER" in their steam reviews

meanwhile it has wallhack for a limited time mechanics, a map with displayed bounty when bounty moves.
As I see it, it's basically has arcade mechanics, if you will. Nothing is hardcore about this game.

I guess they mean that your hunter dies and does not respawn - as a hardcore aspect.

No hate, it's a fun game, just something I recently thought about. Also it's not even realistic, when guns don't even have a bullet physics. Instead they have bullet SPEED and also the damage drop off. So from far distance, some guns do very small damage. Nothing wrong with that, just seems more casual to me… But I've also had a fair bit of fun out of Hunt

Played Slay the Spire a lot this weekend after buying it on sale a while ago. I've never really cared about card games so I wasn't sure I'd enjoy it but it's actually pretty fun. I avoided looking up guides so experimenting with different deck builds and relic combinations was enjoyable, and it's really satisfying when things finally click after getting destroyed for several runs and you figure out how to really take advantage of a character's gimmick. Managed to win with the 3 base characters so I'll probably give the 4th added one a spin and then try to beat the 4th act and maybe some ascensions.

this is a fitting ability for this pokemon I guess, but what a waste!
Anyway this romhack is called Pokemon Altered Emerald. Having never played the vanilla Emerald I can't really make a fair comparison, but this is okay so far.
Unless you know of a better alternative pokebro? I am mainly looking for GBA/DS hacks. The crystal clear looks ambitious and all but the GBC sounds and visuals are unappealing to me (don't judge me too harshly…)
