Yeah, I hope people don't mistake bad comedy for letting the games down. The games probably got a laugh out of me once every 75 jokes.

I did that with the first KoTOR a year ago! It was more difficult than using a saber for sure, you really get the impression they didn't really think anyone would want to main blasters. How is it in the second one?

Just beat Catherine Full Body last night. There are a lot of things I like about the game, and some things I both like and dislike. It's really more of a "this is the main character's story and you're mostly along for the ride" than it is a narrative experience where you choose every move the protagonist makes.

Because of that, I think how you feel about the story will be determined by your own stance on relationships and the morality of them, hedonism, marriage, and things like that. For me, I felt familiarity with my experience watching Breaking Bad in its painful spectation of characters who make questionable decisions and their creation of damning consequences.

Easy mode treated the puzzles well, just takes away the time pressure of the blocks falling away (save for the boss battles where you're being chased). I ended up quite enjoying the puzzles! In the end, I don't know if I'd recommend the game. If you're interested in games doing something neat and novel with the topic of relationships then I think you'll find value in it.

Just beat Slay the Princess twice. Wow, really lived up to the hype for me. Excellent writing and art. Excellent... Format and pacing for a visual novel with a lot of different choices. The themes it explores are incredibly interesting and varied.

I heartily recommend it to anyone who enjoys a VN with a mysteriously intriguing story.

It makes sense. I respect the hell out of the guy for being honest and true of his morals and standing by his community, but I'm sure he knew what he could get into by doing that, and he took the shot anyway. I hope he's just been shuffled around elsewhere and still has a job.

Felt like it was doing just fine to me for how advanced the systems were on a console that was six years old. I do wish you were able to play it, it's an awesome game, it indeed has ambitions that surpass the hardware, but I do think they managed to pull it off, if only by the skin of their teeth.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Depends on taste. I love mechanical depth and systems on systems and depending on how retro you're talking most games older than, say early 2000s ish just don't often have that

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

I mean, this game has a meta war that determines all available planets, mission types and rolls out content based on community involvement. It would be nice to have an offline mode, too, but this game is not completely decoupled from being online, unlike Hitman or something.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Did the first one really have offline? I played the shit out of it, but I was always connected. Sure, they should implement something similar here, too, but it is genuine work they need to put in to get it there, I'm sure they had to invest that for the first game especially since it was on the Vita.

It isn't arbitrary, though, go on any of the communities that care about the meta war and you'll see people really do keep up with it and enjoy it, they work with each other to focus on the major orders and do a bit of roleplaying at the same time.

I know that you're very anti always online, and I understand and agree that it should be optional, but to say that nothing comes out of it would also be disingenuous.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Me too. I know it's a bit of work to set up an alternate mode and method to get to different planets and missions, and I'm sure ships are run really tightly on what gets worked on or not due to paying for whole teams to work, but I do wish they did what they could to future proof it.

A lot of always online games are awesome, have artistic merit, and can be looked back upon later as gaming history, and if they don't preserve these "art pieces" then a huge chunk of gaming history will likely disappear into the ether in 10 or 20 years. It seems a little silly to me that we can go back and play Mario 64, or even Helldivers 1 and see what that was like, but Helldivers 2 will become an inaccessible splash screen, it's a waste of all of the time and work, and even the money that went into making this happen in the first place.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

I much prefer the extremely deliberate aiming and the heavily physics influenced combat of Helldivers. Just makes it feel a lot deeper than EDF that sort of makes up for that granular detail by instead being extremely arcadey and over the top in its weapons and class abilities.

They play quite differently even though they have some surface similarities, but EDF is indeed also awesome and I wish it was more popular.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Yeah, I saw a review where the guy was like "what mechanics are there are really polished" and to me that was saying that they can really feel an absence of the "rest of the game", and so its probably not that far along.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

The recent star ocean remake reminds me of that, I think it's got action combat

all-knight-party, (edited )
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

It depends on what the vision is supposed to be. If the dev was making a hentai game, but had the scenes censored, then that fundementally destroys the purpose of the game and ruins the point.

If it was a game like Stellar Blade which seems like it has a lot more going on in terms of story and worldbuilding, combat and death, then the sexual parts seem almost more exploitative and distract/clash with the primary themes. I have not played it and cannot say absolutely, though, in this case.

Then there are games like the Witcher 3 where sex plays a moderate part in the life of the protagonist and adds to the realism and grit of the world, and so sexual imagery actually adds to the game in that way.

So, I think it all depends on execution and perceived intent.

Edit: none of this is to say I support censorship, I think as long as content is clearly marked it should be up to the player what they want to see, I'm talking about what the censorship impacts in the game experience.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

I've only played Witcher 3 and found a lot of the interesting parts of the world to be the darker parts you don't see in other fantasy games, a lot of the themes of the quests are very heavy, like the bloody Baron's quest as an easy popular mention.

Therefore, the addition of places like whorehouses or other quests related to that deepen the realism of the world in a way that something like Skyrim would absolutely never, and if those bits were ever censored out it would reduce the immersive realism of the world, to me

Interactive Loading Screens - High Hell

Developing interactivity is effort and an investment. Most developers put up a simple loading screen, maybe some text like rotating tips, and a loading indicator. Until 2015 a patent on interactive loading screens may have made developers and publishers cautious and decide against developing interactivity....

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Disgaea 3 on the Vita had a loading screen with a prinny spinning like a ballerina. If you tilted the Vita the accelerometer would make him slide across the screen accordingly, like a spinning top

I thought that it was going to be new Bethesda content, but then it was just workshop content, so it's not substantial.

For one of my friends even though he was on my steam friend's list, and I could see him as a friend on the HD friend list, I had to accept a friend request from him in HD's pending invites section for the game to consider him a friend, and that allowed him to join our friends only games.

It's likely you have the same issue, whatever the reason

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

It's not bad. You only have to use the "premium" currency to unlock the extra unlock tracks, but you also get that currency in-game and farming it isnt too crazy.

Currently as soon as you pick it up your account gets it, so you can drop into trivial missions, find some, collect it, alt F4, do the same mission repeatedly dropping at the super credits every time since the spawns are static on the same map (hence the alt F4) and then once you have 1,000 you can buy one of the unlock tracks. All of the gear and everything in the unlock track is in-game currency from there, so I don't consider it bad at all since you can easily cheese it for free

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Weird, I was able to accept mine, even though he was already my friend, it just made us friends on his side as well. It must be broken in more than one way

I'm looking for play testers for my wacky Stanley Parable inspiredgame to give me honest opinion. If you are fan of those types of games, let's play : )

Hello, I’m close to releasing my third game called Do Not Press The Button (To Delete The Multiverse) so I would like to get some feedback from players. My only conditions is that you let me watch you play because I need to see player reactions and ask questions at specific moments (whether a level works as intended, or a joke...

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

I'd be willing to try it out! I have not played the other games you've listed, though I am very aware of them and play a lot of other games besides.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Sounds easy enough, sure, what are next steps from here?

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Done, you will see a request from this same username.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Agreed. The first one was a tonal flatline for me.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

I second this. Especially since I think the first one still holds up. You will have to reintegrate your brain into being cool with the locked camera, but the game still plays well and has a lot of fun moments. DMC has had a really fantastic and interesting life beyond the original entries, so I think it'd be more fulfilling and interesting keep seeing what can be done with the series than to try and mine old content.

Pong was the last good game, everything since then is garbage /s

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Not the same thing at all. When the Crew is lost, a unique game and its world are lost with it. That's like saying if you want to play something like Metal Gear Solid you can go play Hitman. They're broadly the same genre, but a lot of unique art and experience is lost by just giving up and letting it go the easy way.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Well, there's the other route. If they are forced legally to comply, which is what Ross is trying to get done, and is the far better option alongside being more expensive and difficult, because a company's reaction to finances can be reversed as soon as it doesn't matter or the public forgets.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Future proofing isn't the goal, I don't think. This game had a lot of positive word of mouth after its shutdown. The revival from a new studio and publisher who weren't around to learn anything about its original downfall is probably just an attempt to see if that positive word of mouth can turn into sales.

To them, the problem was never that people couldn't play it after it shut down, it's that it didn't make enough money while it lived. Hell, if it didn't shut down as an online only title this studio wouldn't even have been able to buy it at all, that turned out to be a good part of the design for them.

Edit: to be clear, I'm not advocating for online only games, I'm just saying there's pretty much less than no incentive for them to care about that part of the game

I think I was just happy to see a cast of characters with some energy and personality, so I wasn't too bothered by the cringe, the whole thing was so overly corny and light in tone that my brain just registered it as straight camp and went from there

@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Difficult for me to recommend since they're discontinued and likely pricey, but I still use a Steam Controller daily and find that with thorough bindings it can handle a surprising amount of PC only games, so I'd personally recommend that if it can be had at a fair price.

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Same, I used one forever, wore the joystick down to the hard plastic underneath and it eventually ceased to turn on, I ended up incredibly lucky, some random redditor said he bought one that he never used and actually sent it to me free of charge and I still randomly go on steam and just thank the guy for letting me continue to use this controller.

I really hope they eventually release another or something

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

I'm hoping it's something like opening it up and cleaning it out, I'm wishing you luck on that one, if mine died it'd be like an end of an era

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

I do believe there are touch pad covers you can get, for me though the joystick is what wore down, so I have an extra rubber cap over the top now

@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Agreed, I used to really like Dunkey, then i watched his videos on Death Stranding after immensely enjoying the game myself and found them a little played up for content while painting the gameplay in a less than generous light.

That being said, I do realize it's a persona, and even his "reviews" are called dunkviews, and at times he does certainly have some nice insight, and he's funny for certain, I don't think he's a bad YouTuber or anything, but I hope people don't use his videos as purchasing advice like you might a true review

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

I'm cool with dunkview, he calls it that for a reason. Some people will still use it as a review, like the original guy I commented to. It's a shame if someone treats it that seriously, but I don't think Dunkey is out there pretending to tell you the grand worth of games, it's, in my eyes, obviously enough comedy.

That being said, not even the zombie game video was called a dunkview, that was just... A video. So some people will use anything as a review, I suppose

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Mafia 3 comes to mind and a lot of the game's story and themes are based around that fact

Death Stranding UI is fucking horriffic.

I’m about 8 hours into Death Stranding Director’s Cut, and I just can’t do this. I love the meditative, lonely feel of the gameplay, and I’m always down for a bonkers and absurd Kojima story. I truly hope future games implement a similar traversal system where you really need to watch your footing. But this game is...

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

I beat the game and still play post game and never really thought of the UI as anything other than "gets the job done and looks kinda sci Fi and neat"

all-knight-party,
@all-knight-party@kbin.run avatar

Weirdest comment ever. Devs even confirmed a mobile port, you tell this person to buy a new expensive device instead. What?

Rain World is a sidescrolling platformer in which you play a small rodent who must survive on a planet of other life forms pelted with recurring lethally powerful downpours of rain. You must learn to control your creature (who moves with dynamic physics, along with all other creatures), and learn to interact with and hunt the various other creatures (who have varied and intelligent AI and are not necessarily hostile) in order to gain food to sustain you through the next rain cycle.

Through all of this you explore a large interconnected world of different areas that show a background lore of a world that previously inhabited intelligent industrial beings (who have vanished) and uncover the mysteries within and find others of your kind.

That was as succint as I could make it to show off the unique qualities of Rain World. Its visual style is beautiful, its gameplay has a moderate learning curve due to the physics, and the AI of the creatures are successful in creating a dynamic ecosystem wherein the player feels like they're a small incidental piece of a world that has its own goals and behaviors that the player must learn to fit in with and work within.
