Subject. This is a thread for asking a question that does not need it's own thread like

>What are some games that X?

>Asking for opinions on a game

>What are some games where I can Y?

>A hind?

And so on.

I'll start, what are some games that are set in religious fantasy settings, where you're playing some divinely powered creature sent to go fuck up demons, such as Valdis Story, the Darksiders game or Dood Eternal(since I know someone will mention it if I don't)?

What are some good non-RPG games with a heroic fantasy theme? I really like the Mystara games and love the diesel-fantasy designs in the Sorcer Striker/Mahou Daisakusen series. I already have Dragon's Crown, though I haven't beaten it yet. Any system up to 7th generation/PC/arcade is fine.

>I'm completely new, where do I start?

Learn the Kana. Start with Hiragana and then move on to Katakana. Yes, you need both, and yes stroke order is important. Use Realkana or Kana Invaders for spaced repetition. Alternatively, you can use the Anki deck, but I'd recommend the first two. Tae Kim has a Kana diagram on his website, and you can use KanjiVG for pretty much any character.

>Alright, I know the Kana. Now what?

You have to learn vocabulary and grammar in order to speak and understand the language. Studying both simultaneously will get you understanding things faster. Vocabulary can be learned through just studying words, although some people like studying kanji on their own too. There are grammar guides such as Tae Kim that can get you started quickly, but they won't have everything you need so consult multiple sources as you go.

>Well this is great and everything, but I still need more help

Ask in this thread.

Threadly reminder:

Don't come to tell us about Duolingo, we know that it exists and it is generally frowned upon for using a contrascientific new-aged hippie didactic philosophy, and is designed feel as effortless as possible, even at the expense of actually learning anything.

You can do exactly that. It's better to learn only readings that are used in words you actually know. Imagine trying to learn 生 and trying to just memorize the kanji and all the readings without knowing any actual words. Fucking insanity. Instead memorize them along with vocab like 生命

生きる 生な野菜 誕生 etc.

>Monster Hunter on the PSP? I don't have one of those!

Fortunately, PSP emulation is fantastic, being able to run easily even on smartphones. With a little know-how, you should also be able to get multiplayer working.

>My computer is pretty shitty. I don't know if I can ru-

You can run PPSSPP.

>So what do I need then?

All you need is a computer, PPSSPP, the linked ISO, a gamepad preferably, and access to your router. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR ROUTER THEN IT'S VERY LIKELY YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO PLAY.

>Why Portable 3rd?

Portable 3rd is good for beginners as its a little less clunky, far prettier, and has some quality of life changes to make organization and management easier. If you do start with this and can't read Japanese, though, you will be wanting to check the wiki for and asking for help in this thread to explain certain things. It only has a partial English translation.

SETUP

A more detailed explanation is at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FAeZ83cX7HCiyNvRYGvlzYmOMVEXDxRMkQp5HM5YlG4/pub, just ignore the stuff about coldbird. Here's a more compressed explanation:

The default settings in the most recent release of PPSSPP should be enough, but just make sure that you have networking enabled, the ad hoc server is myneighborsushicat.com, port offset is zero, and that the virtual MAC address has been randomized, which you can do by clicking on it a few times. PPSSPP should also have a firewall exemption.

The more challenging aspect is that you will most likely have to configure your router for the online component to work, but it's still fairly easy to get working. You'll have to log into your router, which can be done by putting 192.168.1.1 into your browser. You'll want to either enable DMZ if you have it or forward UDP Post too long.

>Trials of Mana

Then you have the games that SUPPOSEDLY have a release window for 2020, but we've had very little information on them

>Genshin Impact

I had the exact same thing happen to me, except I didn't have the patience to break down the gates. Instead, the rival leader was able to talk to me through the gates and I switched sides for max dosh, and since I was now on the "defending" team I was able to just open the gates.

It seriously took you three posts in of me saying "Fire Emblem is shit" for you to get that I don't like Fire Emblem? Truly you FE fans are the most illiterate fucking retards imaginable.

F-Zero was very much mainstream when it had games coming out. The fact that it hasn't had a new game in a while does not dismiss the fact that it has a high public awareness in the gaming community even today. You can't just fall into the zoomer way of thinking, "oh I was a stupid minecraft playing baby when this game came out, that means all the people who liked it back then are dead". It's still a famous series and Nintendo simply lacks the wisdom to release a new one. It's a dormant series, that doesn't mean it's an unknown one.

In any case it doesn't really matter because Smash Ultimate fucking sucks shit. I don't care who gets in anymore. I only like Smash in concept because as I said earlier every game in the series had such an incredibly flawed execution that I sometimes wonder if Sakurai has actual brain damage.

I think the Berserk musou wasn't bad. I liked the combat and especially the Berserker armor Guts is really fun to play as. Yeah it sucks how the playable character roster is small for a musou but I don't think that ruined the whole game. Don't know what the fuck they were thinking not letting us be able to play as Skull Knight or Grunbeld, or the other Neo Band of the Hawk members (at least we got Zodd).

Also we need a fucking Dynasty Warriors vs Sengoku Basara game. Lu Bu vs Oda Nobunaga alone would be worth playing it.

What are some nice manly games that raise your testosterone levels by playing them? So far Doom and NuDoom are the only ones I can think of, but those are only manly on a superficial level. Are there any games that are manly like Hokuto no Ken, where the characters not only look manly but also clearly have conviction and disciprine?

What games seem normal at first but actually have a very surreal feel and elements to them /v/? To explain more what I mean, Half-Life did this very well, and I don't mean just the opening sequence and the G-man.

The thing about Half-Life is that the more you get into the game and its expansion packs the more you realize how much of a fucking mess Black Mesa is and how weird is the actual story. I have always felt by playing through Half-Life that Black Mesa is a death trap, but only after playing through Blue Shift did I realize that it is completely intentional on the part of the developers. Everything in Black Mesa is a fucking mess, and it's probably one of the worst companies to work in, not only are the tensions high due to the equipment being pushed, but the fact that through the entirety of the faciltiy shit is getting fucked, with all of the scientists and staff acting either incompetently and in bizarre ways create an atmosphere of complete and utter bizareness that only gets amped up once the aliens actually attack. Everything tries to kill you, and with the miltiary just going in and starting to shoot you to cover up the entire mess, alongside with G-man doing his thing and even the soldiers questioning in some voice lines the idea of the operation, makes you realize that there might be some conspiracy going in the background, which puts you into an even weirder situation, realizing that The Resonance Cascade might have been planned all along, the fact that G-man turns out to be a god-like entity at the end of the game makes everything even weirder and makes you realize that Half-Life 2 literally stuck a story that completely didn't fit onto the first game, the Combine feel as if they were pulled out of their fucking ass, and considering HL1 as its own thing actually makes more sense than when combined with HL2 but that's besides the point

What other games start out as a seemingly generic plot and become more and more weird as time goes on?

That's not necessarily a bad thing in itself. As a developer you aren't trying to just create the hardest game ever, like some masochistic IWTBTG shit. You're trying to craft the best learning curve so the game is a challenge without being obtuse. By the sounds of it, that maze level they removed from Episode 2 probably wasn't a lot of fun.

I'd be hard pressed to find a game that does HL2 better than HL2. You could definitely do it, but I'm not sure anyone has. Maybe Metro 2033?

There certainly is a place for playtesters, but there is a definite limit to what you should do with them.

A smooth experience with a good curve is generally a good thing, but sometimes this devolves into a "child proof experience".

Maze levels tend to be shit, so i doubt it was much of a loss to anyone.

>>16893610

Half life 2 certainly does have a pretty unique final product.

Don't think Metro 2033 really is that close to final HL2. Kinda shocked i can't think of any proper clones.

The beginning of HL2 is truly unique as it's essentially HL1 gameplay in a massive urban clusterfuck. The only two games to come close are Mirror's Edge 1 and STALKER SoC/Clear Sky.

True. But is that an issue? It's a completely different format, so it makes sense to alter things while retaining the spirit of the world or its core rules.

this statement seemed to be phrased as a yes to OP when it amounts to a no

>so it makes sense to alter things while retaining the spirit of the world or its core rules

if you're retaining the core rules, what are you altering? Even if you keep the math right, switching from a turn-based system to semi-real time is a radical change to the core rules (Baldur's Gate)

if adapting a specific adventure (like Kingmaker), a change to real time system may result in "necessary" rebalancing (enemies, especially bosses, have more HP at base difficulty, enemy seems to hit more often so BAB is probably higher, spells seem more effective so save DC is probably higher, etc). The game remains satisfying (okay, not for everyone) in spite of the changes to the rules, stats, etc from the rebalancing

now say you have a particular character build you like. You know the odds this build will be hit by X enemy at Y location from the tabletop. This enemy has now been rebalanced for a semi-real time vidya, and is now stronger and tankier, and seems to continuously eke out a win in spite of tabletop stats giving, say, a 50/50 chance. This is not behaving as expected.

in fairness they probably want the bosses to last more than 2 rounds, but combats you ought to be ready for are suddenly a slog (hell, just the spider cave near the beginning of Kingmaker is a pain in the ass; in the actual module there's a total of 1 giant spider and 1 spider swarm in the whole book and they're in different places. They crafted an area with both in the same place and sufficiently more of them so as to a serious threat to at-level parties. And while they gave you area effect attack items to deal with the swarms, you're probably horribly inaccurate with them depending on your build, you'll have to switch to your torches (which give a -4 to attack rolls), and they'll eat you the fuck alive anyway)

tl;dr

No problem, I'm around in the thread if you got questions. There's a lot of optional rules for when you are actually in the fight. Things like ammo explosions and engines going critical. It can be fun but that means that downed mech you are kicking might actually be a bomb.

I would love to play Battletech on the PC, but I really got the vibe that the creators hated me because I wasn't a degenerate who needed pronouns. Also that tranny cunt talking shit on Twitter ruined it for me.

Plus the aesthetics are trash -Battletech had all that established for 20+ years and the new looks are stupid.

Videogaems you enjoy a lot but know they could have been better if they changed some aspects of the game.

I liked NuDoom, But indeed is fucking repetitive and the OST is shit. But i know if they get a hard rock/ heavy metal soundtrack, make it less repetitive, and delete it the fucking glory kills it would be a great game. But we're talking about Bethesda and even though Eternal seems like an improvement in some ways it takes too many steps back.

For all the improvements that it boasts over crash bandicoot 2, crash bandicoot 3 has worse replayability. Also even though, functionally egypt and the arabian levels are very different and were aesthetic as fuck, it was kind of redundant having both over some other theme, but crash 2 has a similar issue with the Mountain and Chase stages.

Most of the shinobi tools (including upgrades) and almost all of the martial arts skills are completely useless. It would have been better if they had used Bloodborne's design where any weapon that fired a "projectile" cost QSB but otherwise you could use your special effects for free. That still wouldn't have fixed underpowered tools and skills though.

Only having 3 ninjutsu skills in the game is a bit disappointing too. Although a bigger disappointment is poor distribution of geckos throughout the game since they can be used to buff your sword with poison or lifesteal when you use bestowal on them instead of a blood blade.

Also only having 5 possible lapis per game cycle is a huge pain in the ass.

Okay folks follow me on this one. I was playing a game trying to figure out why the rewards were so low, and that led me to think about some other things.

New Card Games(Not Hearthstone, more like Legends of Runeterra and Krosmaga) seem to have made a new system where they're pay to play, but you can play normally if you spend more time farming.

But I don't mean just normal playing the game time, real life time. And you have to play every day, too. How does this work? Well, its just that the reward for playing the game is PEANUTS, or literally nonexistent, unless you're doing a daily quest. Sometimes you will literally get nothing except for a rank up/experience which can be argued to be a bad thing.

I was also thinking about MMOs.

A lot of them seem to have systems which people here will dislike, in general. Even selling cosmetics is bad for some reason. Despite this, I haven't seen one MMO doing well unless it was selling at least some pay2win stuff, and there are even complaints about some games not doing well.

The problem is, both of those kind of games are dying. Its too early to tell anything about Legends of Runeterra, but those MMOs and the time gated Card Games do not seem to be generating a profit. can a game of those kinds ever be successful without pandering to P2W cash cows? Some anon was posting about a system where cosmetics were dropped in-game and sold off in a auction of sorts, but tl;dr it was somehow less profitable than "ethical" games we've had before.

Oldschool runescape lets you pay for bonds. These cost around $6 and give you a two weeks of membership. You can also sell them to other players. This allows the community to play the p2p features by paying with ingame gold while simultaneously allowing people with little time to play and expendable income to buy gold while supporting players with less expendable income. Buying gold from the dev isnt that much of a problem because people do it on the black market already and you can only do so much with GP without playing the game.

The game has a really interesting economy and I can play deadman mode which has world pvp nearly everywhere and very little real world trading consequences than the main game
