Tactics Games Anonymous 03/13/2021 (Sat) 23:23:23 Id: 82cdb3 No. 259156 [Reply] [Last]
Because I don't want to keep teasing the anons in the big Fire Emblem thread about their game not being very complex. So let's talk about one of the best genres that goes hand in hand with autism. Doesn't matter if it's turnbased or real time. It can be as easy to get into as Fire Emblem and Shining Force or extreme autism territory like Advanced Tactics Gold. Let's get the ball rolling. What do you anons think about XCom 2013 and XCom2? I enjoy them, despite their meme hit chances. Some people call the ability system a meme, but that's why I like it and games like Disgaea. However, I think the developers dropped the ball real hard with XCom 2, and it's all because of one simple reason. In a game where a loss can be a major setback, so you want to play it slowly with a lot of planning and thinking, they decided to add a time limit to most missions.

On The Morality of Savescumming Anonymous 09/09/2022 (Fri) 12:20:57 Id: 80502c No. 686614 [Reply] [Last]
What's your opinion on save scumming? How often do you do it and when do you do it? Is it bad game design if a player ever feels pressured to save scum? Is save scumming an issue that needs to be addressed in the first place or is it just something to be expected now? I personally save scum when I'm trying to get secret rewards and to avoid getting locked into certain "bad ends." I don't really mind losing player characters unless the loss is so great that it might as well be a game over.

>>687947 >rifles and autocannons doing shit all to a muton What a bullshit intro. I do agree with you though, the original's all about equipment so even a team of rookies can do wonders against a high tier enemy. If you lose a unit, you have up to 11 more, if you lose a craft you have more hangers and more skyrangers to play with. If there's a shitton of UFOs coming your way and you've planned for it you can fully repel and take them all down, you don't just eat shit because this global anti alien organization only budgeted for one landing craft capable of fielding a whopping 6 soldiers at a time. If a rookie's got shit aim you can give them a flamethrower or a shotgun or a rocket launcher or a heavy cannon or an auto cannon to play with. You can field smoke grenades to help with survivability of your units. You can make drones, scouts and tanks which can soak up damage without losing a unit that gains experience. You can spam aimed shots or do point blank auto shots to compensate for damage/accuracy when you can. There are so many options to play with in the original XCOM that it can be as bullshit as it wants and you'll never really feel like it's frustrating in a way you can't deal with. You don't have that in the reboot unless you're playing long war which opens up more and more options, which I really like but the game's built on a terrible foundation. My dream TBT would be a sweet spot between the insane tech and options the original XCOM gives you and the streamlining/QoL the reboot has.
>>686700 I more or less agree with this with caveats that aren't worth mentioning. But if you're playing vidya like Rimworld, and you intend to roleplay as yourself and people you know, you might feel the urge to savescum because your autism can't handle your coworker being able to tank 30 bullets to the body and somehow live even past infections, but the character you made of yourself can get shot in the arm twice and die on the spot. For that reason, it really does depend on the game sometimes. Like anon mentioned that I'm replying to, Baldur's Gate and Fallout let you save everywhere, and anywhere for the most part, which could be chalked up to bad game design. What's even stranger is that Baldur's Gate has a chapter system and I often wonder what it would be like if you had save points that only come after chapters have ended, but sometimes games can have so much grinding that in the end I can see why anon says it's bad design to save anywhere anytime. You could say you're getting older and you don't have time to memorize where every phone booth (acts as save points) in Yakuza is, but if anything, that can be considered a litmus test for how immersed and interested you are in the game as a whole. Then again, I've played Yakuza from 0 - 6 (I'm on Judgement now) and haven't fulled remembered the streets and locations, but when you have save points you are forcing the player to remember where shit is, which you can't really rely on effectively to happen if you allow saving everywhere unless there's a very obvious map that takes you places like clicking the town buttons in Fallout. Then again, it's not like there's any specific place to go to in Fallout 1 and 2's maps that the game won't reveal to you already, but I can imagine if I had to memorize where shit is because of save points and a lack of overly obvious maps, the game would be better but harder to get into if you've got responsibilities. Hard to justify starting up something like that when you came home from two 16 hour shifts.
>>695391 >your coworker being able to tank 30 bullets to the body and somehow live even past infections, but the character you made of yourself can get shot in the arm twice and die on the spot. Sounds like a shit game.

Someone was asking about some images that I had used in the GTA mosaic thread and I thought it was about time to have another one of these. This is primarily aimed at pixel art but thinks like sky boxes especially low poly ones are welcome as well and so are things like down scaled drawings that are turned into pixel art like what Chrono Cross and Legend of Mana did. Pixel art BGs that are just are and aren't from actual games are welcome too. Don't forget about the other pixel art thread that's about sprites instead of BGs which is on autosage and we'll probably need another one soon >>516987 Post whatever you got.

So, now that these games have come out on PC I'm thinking of trying the series out. I'd like to skip to Lost Judgement cause the combat seems a lot better, but I'm worried it'll affect my feelings on the story.

>>694334 Me neither, I also didn't appreciate the Saints Row 3 tier retardation.
I've been hyped for this for a while, been spending the entirety of the last few days just grinding through. >Judgment Main case itself was pretty good, although it was a bit slow in the beginning. Combat is alright but not as good as something like Yakuza 0. The ending was solid though and the climax/boss fights were great. Overall, 8/10. I really wish there were some fun mini-games though, these ones sucked ass. Some of the sidequests were pretty funny though I'll give it that. >Lost Judgment Im just starting it, but the setting seems way better so far as well as the main conflict of the story. They've added more features to the combat and gameplay which seem to be for the better. I'll update once I beat it but it looks more promising.

Anyone here went to gaming competitions and tourneys back when you actually had to bring your own setup? What was your most fun day with friends and strangers? Local gaming scene with people who can't play for shit but still came along to duke out with people across town and eat pizzas. Did you ever get "big" on the scene? Before eSports and moneys became the only thing in competitive gaming. I don't know how today's comp play has managed to combine the worst of gaming with worst aspect of having a job together. Do comp play still happen for lesser known/older games these days? Share and bring pizzas

I used to visit a comic shop that had a section of the store set up for DooM, Quake, and Diablo LAN play. Never played long enough to git gud. Also played DooM and Heretic on the LAN at school a few times. I didn't have a computer of my own, not even a "family computer" until I bought one through a catalog in 1998. Then I started to git gud with Quake 2, and later, 3 and UT, but I was never in the position where I could do LAN parties after that. Now, Internet service is good enough that you don't need to go anywhere to play multiplayer stuff. Missed the boat, pretty much.

I'm playing this in an ultrawide with HDR and it's the most atmospheric shit ever. It's fucking gorgeous, I've never been so thoroughly impressed with the attention to detail that everything has, I can crank it to 110% res scaling without going under 60, that's great, it's optimisied! This game is really fun, the cat models and animations are kinda shit considering you're going through the whole game with it, but the overworld is like CGI. I want it to have a sequel with a better cat, I'm not even done with it. I'm savoring every second and taking as many pauses as I can, I'm gonna be pretty fucked up when it ends but it feels like a Goaty. The music is insanely soulful and melancholy, gameplay is unique and it's all so immersive. Worth the pirate.

Fire Emblem's weird direction and a possible future? Anonymous 03/13/2021 (Sat) 15:47:02 Id: d8e458 No. 258955 [Reply] [Last]
I haven't seen much discussion here or previously about Fire Emblem 3 Houses and its weird, jumbled identity. It's certainly a fascinating case when you take in account the history of Fire Emblem and ignore the localizations, because I think we're seeing a very hard shift in both stories presented in FE and developers. All this is speculation mind you. Old Fire Emblem >Made by nerds who liked 80s and 90s fantasy anime and DnD >Series from 1 up to 10 were about fantasy Europe being the good guys mostly and fighting against dragons, undead and some dark priests mostly >Series jerked off fantasy France mostly >In an ironic twist, they depicted Macedonia as megalomaniacal and later humbled as a nod to Alexander the Great >Big bad was mostly Fantasy Britain but thanks to Alm this stopped >Fantasy Skandinavia got two games and somehow was connected to fantasy Thrace >Fantasy Greece also got two games and was connected to Arthurian / Roland legends fighting against Messopotamian deities and dragons >FE9 and 10 were fantasy Crimean recreating Crimean legends featuring Guts from the Berserk series >The games are loved in Japan, many series exist thanks to Kaga's idea of making Lazer Squad into an RPG as well >Fire Emblem grows by adding Kaga's ideas and by trading ideas with the series that sprouted thanks to them, like SRW <FE11 and 12 were remakes <We all know how uber shit 12 was and how it almost killed the franchise <The less said about Kris the better

>>679913 >Will there be full bodysuits that allow me to rape someone in Runescape No suits yet, but you can fuck up some guards.
>>679913 My VR headset has been collecting dust for months because VR has a severe "no games" issue almost like the old PS3 maymays except some games exist yet pretty much every new game that comes out is not for VR. Also the large majority of VR games are "fuck around" games with no ending which are more like tech demos. Half-Life Alyx is one of the very few VR games that is actually a full game with a start and end.
>>679913 After RE4 VR and Half-life Alyx, I think people in general have stopped giving a shit and VR is going niche. The former was a censored reskin that killed the Survival Action tension by allowing you to do a lot of dumbshit, while the latter is Valve's Half-life redemption arc tech demo and killer app for Valve Index. Weebs who still hope for muh NerveGear deserve shit. Still pissed that Faceberg raped VR and drove Palmer "VR" Luckey and John Carmack out of the VR industry and just went with overpriced mass production garbage. There's been progress in making the VR experience less of a nauseafest and movement more natural, but it's gonna be years till some Japanese Company (probably Illusion) in making Rapeman Suits.
