Choices actually matter in Mass Effect 3 even if it doesn't directly effect the ending.

You can decide on the fate of the Krogan and determine if the Quarians, the Geth, and the Rachni will go extinct. Just because your choices don't effect the choices you get at the end doesn't mean that you can't make extremely impactful choices for the galaxy.

ME3 was a downgrade from even bog standard dogshit false "choices", because at least that low-effort shit would have a fucking slideshow of screencaps and maybe even a line of text or dialogue about how you affected some outcome at the end.

But that's wrong. The devs of the original Warioware were developing Wario Land 4 (one of the finest games for the GBA mind you) and made Warioware by shitposting on each other's work, it's the reason why they reuse assets and sound effects in both games. Some higher up found out they were doing this but liked it enough that they allowed them to put some other Nintendo material like the spin-the-wheel microgame and the car microgame, they sold it and it became an instant hit. Without Wario Land, there would be no Warioware.

Also I'd say that even Warioware suffered a terrible fate since Gold is basically just like 4 new microgames and most of the other ones are "remastered" (aka terribly looking) versions of the original. They even fucked up one minigame by making it gender neutral. Because bathrooms are such an important issue guys.




Okay thanks, I felt it was kind of weird that she speaks like a toddler but then I found out they used a voice that sounds almost like the exact same as the one used in the NIntendo logo for her original game, talk about dedication.

It's really solid. The whole aiming side button is a meme though, but unironically good for drawing.

It slows down your speed/sensitivity by a fuck ton and allows to make slow and accurate movements. It's supposed to be for SNIPE SNIPE but games like TF2 benefit from jerky movements so I never had to use it.

I got bored and took a bunch of screenshots while I was fucking around with the console commands, I forgot how cool BA2's first two levels look but since BA2 doesn't let the player return to previous levels (like BA1 does) most people ignore it because the game doesn't really start until level 3. This is especially true for the giant monorail roundhouse, which is a huge (20+ floor) setpiece that most people blow through in under 30 seconds. I also noticed that the monorail roundhouse has both a nicely detailed crane and a ground turntable for some reason, which doesn't make sense if you think about it.

Weirdly, half of the exterior windows in the museum look out inside big rooms instead of skybox. This is probably done because the skybox lighting isn't dynamic, it's impossible to make it darker/change states as the player's elevation/Z-coordinates get lower. This goes to show Bioshock's age because even HL2 (which released two years before Bioshock) was capable of this even though it's rarely used (iirc I think it's only used during the teleport sequences).

Fire Emblem, that's why easy modes are retarded. I believe games should have one "mode" of difficulty and if you can't beat it, too bad. If anything they should only add harder modes through free DLC if not right out of the gate.






>fucking static gyro controls for a sitting position is waggle



This would have been true if RE5 was a singleplayer game. Look at the original 2007 trailer. More enemies on screen, smarter AI, interesting story basis, etc. All wasted because muh wacism whining made capcuck add the nigress as a coop partner. Hell Sheva was already a main character. Not to mention the first game in the series to sell you DLC instead of unlocking scenarios.

All this said, it's still a fine coop experience. I played Lost in Nightmares with a friend and it was great.


Uh, yeah it is. It dumbed down the level design and made the game more linear. To include coop they had to divide the game into missions by loading screen. There are less enemies on screen at once as well.


>but in terms of gameplay they rush you with more and more numbers with each passing level until there's more niggers than you have bullets

Never happens because the spear and shovel wielding niggers drop ammo for the player. RE5 and 6 fags are always disingenuous when they argue.

It could be a case of them trying to replicate the feel of the original RE2 trial disc which had a way different soundtrack that actually bears some resemblance with what the demo currently has.

Ico and Shadow of the Colossus were some of the first AAA games to rely heavily on visual language, art direction and music to tell a story and evoke feelings using a rather minimalist design. Simple story, well realized and well presented that explored themes of relationship using its mechanics. While not the first games to do any of that, they certainly were the most cohesive and notorious especially because of high production values, which was unheard of back then for that type of game. They had a clear vision and distinct style to them (but you don't see Ueda's name plastered all over like hackjima does with his games). Above all they were videogames first, you can skip 99% of cutscenes to experience the fucking game unlike games like nuGOW which are so full of themselves making you endure every fucking cutscene and shit in the name of art.

My only complain about those 2 games is that they pretty much started the whole videogames are art bs, so much so even Roger Ebert even admitted SoTC to be the most cited example of videogames as art.

>Why do they like it so much? Doesn’t it embody everything they’d normally hate?

Because they're hypocrites and know for a fact nobody wants to play a game filled with SJW leftist propaganda, so they use the template with pretensions of being artistic and deep.

Wrong, she always turns into a shadow after absorbing horny power from sacrifices (but not Queen's essence since Ico murders her before a transfer could happen). In both endings she sends you out in a boat before castle crumbles and in both you find Yorda washed ashore and in both endings she wakes up. The non-watermelon ending only has one shot more, showing them eating watermelons together, that's all. Also you can only get it on new game plus, it's just a bonus.

Which Assassin's Creed games did you think were alright? Which ones did you think were pozzed?

For me, I thought that Black Flag, Rogue, AC2, Brotherhood, and AC1 were ok experiences overall. Black Flag probably being my favorite because it reminds me of a mature rated Wind Waker somehow. Rogue is my 2nd fav because it lets you play (and succeed) as a villain. AC2 and Brotherhood had the charismatic Ezio to carry their storylines. And AC1 was tedious, but its story was morally gray and not simplistically "assassins Good; templars Bad" like later entries.

The rest I thought were a little too pozzed for me to sit through again. AC3, Liberation, and Origins had redskin/nigger protagonists with racebaity stories. Revelations focused too much on Desmond Miles' retarded subplot and took place in a muslim shithole country. Unity was broken and the bushy eyebrow ""french"" protag was unlikable. Syndicate is ok, but the blatant racemixing between Evie and a poo-in-the-loo ruins it. Odyssey is alright, but that homosexual npc and lesbian Medusa subplot were stains on an otherwise decent game.

Black Flag and Rogue also annoyed me the least because it lacked having Desmond Miles and Layla Hassan gameplay segments. Both of whom are just insufferable characters.

Is Mario an immigrant? He's commonly called both an Italian plumber and Mushroom Kingdom resident. But obviously, he isn't a native citizen that was born there. A stork had to deliver him and Luigi from a faraway magical place (Italy) to reach the kingdom. Both babies got accidentally dropped along the way. Baby Mario got lucky and was taken care of by a family of protective Yoshis. Baby Luigi got neglected as an infant while in Kamek's clutches, the childhood trauma leading to his cowardly nature later on in life. Regardless, at the end credits of Super Mario World 2, the stork finally delivers the twins to the house of their new parents in the Mushroom Kingdom. Presumably adoptive because their faces are never shown.

Anyways, this is the theory someone recounted to me when he suggested that Superman and Mario are immigrants.

>DK specie just mature slower than humans but are kept young longer.

Then current DK should appear younger than Mario, considering they were born around the same time, yet he is a fully grown gorilla.


Nintendo confirmed that Jumpman and Mario are the same character, plus Pauline appears in other Mario games as a love interest.


Then DK should be a lot older than what he currently is, again, he is supposed to be the same age as Mario.

I think the shorter lifespan is the real answer, and that baby is Cranky.

He looked like today's DK in his prime(but with the different artsyle and whatnot) and current DK is probably gonna look like him when older too.

There is a problem with that though, according to Miyamoto, Mario is about 24 or 25.

So, let's say that Kong's reach adulthood at 8 and reach old age at 20 or something. So, let's say that Cranky was 12-14 years old in the original DK, at the same time Junior was about 3-4 years old, afterall, he was still a kid in DK Junior, then as soon as he reached adulthood he had current DK, who is an adult 8 years later, this makes sense and fits in the time period of 24 o 25 years on the Kong's side. However, if this was true, then that means that Mario was 12-14 during the original DK, and that doesn't make sense because Jumpman was a fully grown man in DK, both in sprites and artwork.

Indeed that there is no reference to the Queen there, but most sources that reference this page say it's the queen because of the difference in design from Old Mushroom Peach design on the very next page

So I just finished a few play throughs of planescape torment, and I am now moving onto another game on my bucket list Gothic 1 and 2. This was a game I meant to play before, but I couldn't figure out how to get stuff out of a chest so I put it off until now. After fiddling with the controls though I finally figured out you have to use the action button plus the right directional button to move stuff into my inventory. A mile stone has been reached. After that I jumped then bounced off a wall before flying 25 feet off a ledge and dying. All things considered I think I am doing horribly, but I'll persevere. Anyone got any tips I may need to know? I've heard the world building is really good.

One of the greatest games of its time, but i feel like it didn't age as well as it should have. I hope they release a remastered version of the game

A remaster would be nice but everyone else will think its too hard because it's click to win in combat like Skyrim and everyone will wonder why you can't take armor when you're meant to work for it.

The meta as to what is an acceptable game mechanic has completely changed. They'd have to make some concessions to the new generation of gamers, but i think it could be done without compromising its essence.

1e4fc7  No.16012339


It could, it all just depends who played the game. I remember coming across a dude from Germany who more or less talked about Gothic once I brought what sort of RPG's we enjoyed. The Germans along with the Slavs would no doubt enjoy Gothic unlike the Burgers.

Yeah, add Russia and you've got the WRPG belt that accounts for half of rpg sales on the PC. Gothic is definitely a mainstream game over there. In some markets I think it never went out of print.

Serious question.

Why do people dismiss this style?

It seems to me that is easy to make and allows a good indie guy to make more art at faster rate, so is a good solution.

Maybe that way he can focus on coding or music or story.

>in order to properly emulate a console's graphical style (like say, the NES)…

Well there's your problem. Why are you doing that, chief? Developers back then didn't want to make 2-color 16x16 characters or whatever the fuck, they made the most realistic and good-looking depictions of their designed characters and settings with the tools and budgets at their disposal. You can argue that blue-haired plumbers on pink platforms is not very realistic, but it's a gameplay choice, meant for recognition and to pop out on black CRT backgrounds. You often only have to look as far as the box and manual art to see what the devs were really going for. Can pixelshit devs say that today? "We made the best 2D pixel art game we could with the technology available to us in 2016-2019 and the tireless efforts of our world-class team of artists." No. What we do get is shovelware and excuses (and apologists like yourself). Because to do more would be TOO HARD.

What kind of retarded question is that? There's a million different reasons. Generally the two biggest ones are that A) people actually like the NES aesthetic and B) replicating NES graphics is indie budget-friendly. Do they really need any more reason than that? It "being too hard" is a valid reason, because doing difficult things takes lots of expertise and man hours, which costs MONEY. Do you know anything at all about how labor works you commie dipshit?

Not everyone is a "this character's pixellated cock needs to have a million layers of color depth and a billion frames of animation" faggot like you. NES-style graphics are both budget friendly and something audiences clearly enjoy due to their enduring popularity. So they're not doing anything wrong by continuing to make games in this vein.

Anon is talking about "Escape castle Wolfenstein" which is an old and lame stealth game.

So I finally got around to starting System Shock 2. How does my mod list look? Followed some old guide any mods you guys would recommend to a new player? I loved Deus Ex with the GMDX that mod really put the game on another level.

Dunno if I should be asking opinions of the menagerie of drooling retards ITT, but what was the deal with this remake again? Wasn't it going to downgrade the combat in some way?
