actually i just got to the point of the game where there are skate shoes so want to correct myself. fuck yeah, skate shoes. they were my favorite part of the original


Now at 500 hours. I have been averaging over 14 hours of Stellaris per day since I installed it. This probably isn't healthy.


I just weighed myself and I lost about 13 pounds since I installed stellaris because I just play all day and forget to eat. Part of it is probably depression which I am using stellaris to cope with but yeah this is probably not healthy.


Enjoy it while it lasts is what I say.

me waiting for a game to be released that doesn't have some demonic shitskin or toilet as the main character


I've been playing a lot of Bust a Move, in my browser. I've always thought this game was really fun, even as a 7 year old kid. It's so simple. I'd like to find it in a real arcade; I'd have a blast.


New Assassins Creed is set entirely in Japan but the player is an obese negroid modeled after some Californian rapper. It can't get much worse.


That sounds really comfy wiz, I used to love that game as a kid too!


Giving Yakuza 0 a try, it's good fun. I've never really played a game like this before, I assumed it was like a Jap Grand Theft Auto but it's not really like those games at all


Enjoy, it's a great game and I wish I could wipe my memory and play it for the first time again. I remember staying up all night until like 7 am grinding the cabaret minigame when I was a NEET.


Kiwami 1 and 2 really pale in comparison. I don't know how good the spin offs like Kenzan, Isshin and Judgement are, but I've lost any interest in carrying on with the mainline entries (excluding 7)
Play 0 and you've played them all I guess.


unreal if true


>Play 0 and you've played them all I guess.
I've played and enjoyed all the games released on PC but yeah I agree, they're fun if you don't mind lots of repetition and really enjoy the formula but don't offer much new. 0 came after 3-5 so it was building off all of those and ended up being better, K1 was a shitty remake that padded the fuck out of the original game and made the combat worse somehow, and 6 and K2 were on their new engine and have shitty jank combat which they didn't really improve significantly until Lost Judgement.
7 is really good though, the turn based combat is pretty simple but it has good presentation and the protagonist and party are more interesting than the casts in the mainline games.
Judgment has a great story and atmosphere but it's brought down by a lot of shitty gameplay gimmicks which get tedious and repetitive, still worth playing IMO and it's probably my 3rd favorite game after 0 and 7.
Lost Judgement has a worse story than Judgment but it has much better combat and less gimmicks.
Ishin (the remake, haven't played the JP only ps4 release) was eh, the story starts of compelling but it gets shit later on. The styles are kind of fun but getting upgrades is grindy as fuck and apparently they patched out the best money-making method shorty after I finished the game which is retarded.

I hope Gaiden and Infinite Wealth end up being good but with all the Western pandering they've started doing (eceleb cards DLC in Ishin, eceleb English voice actors, putting some vtuber in Gaiden for the cabaret game, and Infinite Wealth taking place in Hawaii I think) I'm worried future entries will just start having western ecelebs inserted into them as substory characters or as facescan models rather than focusing mainly on Japanese culture like past entries.

Pretty funny but not at all surprising, they really can't help themselves.

Halls of Torment is a good Vampire Survivors type game if enjoy that type of gameplay, it's pretty braindead like all games of its type but the aesthetic is nice and it has a lot of quests to to work towards completing.
Touhou: Mystia's Izakaya is a comfy restaurant sim, kind of similar to the restaurant flash games where you work as a waitress but you get to collect and buy resources, befriend characters to learn recipes, choose your menu, etc. It's repetitive but fun, I like playing it before bed on my Steam Deck.
Troubleshooter: Abandoned Children (might not be indie but I think it's a smaller studio so not really AA either), a Korean SRPG. The first few hours are slow but it picks up after that and it seems like it has a lot of missions. Lots of build options to play around with as well.

File: 1690400736057.jpg (163.31 KB, 1920x1080, 16:9, Tom Clancy's The Division™….jpg) ImgOps iqdb

It's the wrong time of year for it, but I've been playing The Division. I'm making my way through the game at a snail's pace because I walk or jog instead of sprinting, and I don't use fast travel unless I have to backtrack through places I've just been. I'll boot up the game, do whatever missions are around, go for collectibles, and just wander around the city. It's really beautiful and intricately detailed to a degree that only a triple-A game could be. You can enter many more buildings than you'd expect, it's really cool even if there isn't much to find besides crafting materials, phone recordings and stuff like that. You really see the advantage of a big studio like Ubisoft with a game like this. Lot of triple-A games that come out nowadays are nothing that a smaller dev team couldn't make.

The atmosphere is incredible. It's pretty refreshing to see a semi-realistic apocalypse scenario without zombies, and it's a nice change of pace to play a game that takes place during the apocalypse rather than after it. You walk the streets and they're appropriately empty save for stray dogs, civilians, small groups of hostile thugs and the occasional friendly patrol. Civilians will rifle through trash, fight with each other, approach you for help or even keel over and die from sickness or starvation right in front of you. Sometimes there'll be people who call out to you from their apartment windows, either to try and shoo you away or encourage you for doing what you're doing. The fact that there's still people just chilling in their homes, seemingly unaware of how bad things have gotten in the outside world is a neat and oddly realistic touch. The safehouses are very cozy and feel lived-in. While their function is always the same, they're pretty varied in appearance and presentation - there's safehouses underground in the sewers, others in abandoned homes, others in department stores or warehouses, it's pretty cool.

Gameplay's nothing to write home about, it's satisfying enough. I like the way loot has been handled so far. Yeah it's mostly just numbers-go-up, but I like that there are specific archetypes of weapons that behave consistently no matter what level or dps stat they have. Like you can go ahead and pick up any SCAR-H and whether it's a level 1 common or level 14 rare, it handles the same way as any other SCAR-H. Kicks the same, recoil pattern's the same, all-around feels the same. I like that, because it makes it easy to tell at a glance whether you'll want to keep a weapon or not and it means even though you're frequently switching out gear as you level up, there'll still be certain guns you know you gravitate towards and enjoy using.

The game is surprisingly difficult, too. Your healthbar is really small and you can pretty much never poke your head out from the same spot twice unless you want it blown off, so you're forced to constantly move around and change cover. The AI is relentless and isn't programmed to go easy on you; if you don't make them back off, they'll just keep on coming until they're right up in your face.

I played the Division 2 first and this one feels a lot more genuine, for lack of a better word. The city is desolate and lonely, and it does a good job of making you feel like you're one of the few out there still trying to do good and restore some order and humanity to a dying world.


this wiz is downloading baldurs gate and will be playing that soon enough. i remember playing an older baldurs gate, probably the first, a long time ago. i like when older stuff is used to make newer games… hopefully this game is fun


I'm also downloading it, it looks good, the devs seems like decent people


larian is nice. they made their own original game series from the beginning (divinity) and have been making games for it for the past 20 years. the fun of dinivity original sin and its sequel in particular is what made everyone hyped for baldurs gate


Skyrim in 4k with DynDOLOD is so fucking cool.


yeah I remember divine divinity from way back then, it was an alright diablo clone, haven't played the new games though


I am still doing my vanilla play through and some of the stuff is literally uglier the oblivion imo.
So once I am done with this play through I too want to see how beautiful I can make the game with mods. Because it is a very fun game that I am enjoying and will most certainly return to, but it's very ugly.


I love Skyrim vanilla, as the quests and world are the real reason I enjoy it, but I couldn't play it without at least SkyUI, I think.
My current character is a mage and modded spells like Longstride (movement speed 20%+) are great.


the size of the game definitely takes a hit on the visuals when compared to oblivion. at least once you leave the heavy traffic routes and the beginning path, things arent as pretty


I started a playthrough a while ago going through all of the quests including the miscellaneous quests, and I'm well over 100 hours in, and I haven't finished any faction quest and have barely even gotten into the main quest. I started the Solstheim DLC a while ago, and I was playing it for days, and I'm almost finished with all of the quests. It's probably been over a month in game, and I haven't even been in Skyrim, even though my character got married before going to Solstheim.


I loved Oblivion and spent hundreds of hours. But skyrim didnt work for me at all. Being a mage is awful because you cant even make your own spells. Questlines lines are terrible compared to Oblivion's Dark Brotherhood. Everything feels so casualised that i simply cant get into it.

Similar for Fallout 4, that was unplayable even though i liked New Vegas and Fallout 3.

So sad that Bethesda did this. But posts like yours are so odd to me, I dont understand how so many people enjoy skyrim if they already played the much superior oblivion


I love both for different reasons.


Playing Oblivion again for the first time in years, I forgot how much I enjoy it and am really having a blast. I'm happy to see that it still occasionally gets mod updates, "better cities" is looking absolutely gorgeous and puts even many modern games to shame. I am currently relearning my way through the "construction set" so I can play around with the inner workings of the game myself. great fun.


Fallout 4 is a better game than 3 in pretty much every way, dunno how you can like 3 but claim 4 is unplayable


4 is terrble as a rpg but is a competent shooter.
If you don't give a shit about anything related to rpg and prefer shooters then I guess I could understand where you are coming from, but if you care even a little about rpg stuff then 3 is the superior game in almost every way.


Cruelty Squad
already finished the first ending, now grinding for the true conclusion


Playing mass effect 2. It's annoying how it keeps forcing the progression of the main story on me. I just want to complete all the side missions in peace.


I was playing Bomberman 2 for NDS (AKA Custom Battler Bomberman). I was having a really good time and was close to finish it, but something went wrong with my R4 yesterday and I lost all of my game progress.

F-Zero 99 is pretty fun, I laughed my ass off when it was announced since it seemed like a middle finger to all the fans to release a battle royale type game after about 20 years without a new entry in the series but it's actually pretty competently done and addicting. Hopefully there's enough interest in it to convince Nintendo to remaster/remake one of the older games or release a new one.


can't blame them that genre has been moribund for a long time

still that sounds like a pretty big deal that they are willing to revive the ip

Recently i did a long skirmish match against 1v4 ( Very Hard AI ) in American Conquest: Fight Back Expansion.
I´m now slowly uploading it to my jewtube channel.

I have divided the entire thing in 6 parts, 2 more to go..


Looks cool. I like RTS tactical battles.

I only got back into gaming recently and missed the 2000s golden age of RTS.


You can find mods for it here:
Don´t mind the Chinese language too much, after all the "Gold Edition" mod was made by hardcore Chinese fans. A well done pack portraying the game with an Asian theme. Some mods work with the Original Game ( flags, difficulty AI, gun smoke for ex. ) But most will require the Fight Back Expansion in order to function properly.


i can only play starfield in like 2 hr bursts, and often my sessions are forcefully terminated by bugs and crashes. no idea how people are 100+ hours into this game

i am half tempted to just wait a year for official mod support to fix a lot of my gripes. it isnt a bad game but it's extremely easy for me to save the game abd just and alt-f4 at any moment of annoyance. i cant think of a game ive played in this manner before, maybe old console games that were a slog. but this isnt even a slog, theres nothing difficult so far

bizarre gaming experience


you gotta be brave and patient to play a Bethesda game on release

didn't pay for it so no worries

Modern AAA games are purposely released as buggy messes so that pirates give up and cave in to buying retail. That crash? That's just Biden's version of "Trial expired, please register".


How about not playing the stupid shit goyslop games, and focus on old games made with purpose.


why would buying a game fix bugs? that is the dumbest thing i've ever heard. programmers create bugs, even bug fixes just result in other bugs being created


Witchfire is awesome. I was waiting for a good roguelite fps and it's finally here


Recently finished NFS Underground 2 and NFS Most Wanted properly on the PS2.
It has been a while since i have played these 2 ports on there.
