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

Dungeon Crawlers Anonymous 06/05/2021 (Sat) 23:49:27 Id: 998e58 No. 324366 [Reply] [Last]
I want to play a cool dungeon crawler to sink time into while I do something else. I like Etrian Odyssey and Class of Heroes, which I used to play both something over a decade ago. Tried getting into Wizardry I but it's unforgiving and rather outdated. I can still put up with it, played the NES version. Which ones do you like? Are old-school styled dungeon crawlers the ultimate anti-normalfag genre? Which ones do you reccomend? Don't give me easy faggot shit like 7th Dragon 2020 which has a tranny. Is Stranger of Sword City any good? I saw threads for it years ago but didn't care for it back then. Also I found this one funny neofag thread while looking for EO pictures where they complain about loli characters ruining games, surprisingly not everyone there was a faggot back then https://archive.ph/w22qs

>>329286 That was an interesting watch, it made me realize I know jack shit about dungeon crawlers. I didn't know there were so many subgenres and it makes me confused because despite having played a shit ton of vidya I just never seem to have heard about any of this somehow. Grimrock earlier was the first game I played featuring tile movement and I thought it was very eccentric and something that was probably specific to that game because it's really limited and again I've never seen anything like that before but now it seems there's an entire subgenre of games like that.

>>275703 The Water Temple's brilliant. I stand by that a lot of people gave it flak purely for 3D Zelda being brand new and not having developed navigational/spatial sense for a larger maze-like environment that incorporates three dimensions. Even later 3D games were essentially 3D composites of a 2D floorplan that could have worked with an overhead view. The main column of the Water Temple is a single room, yet spans three floors, where which level you progress to changes based on where you are in the dungeon sequence and the method of traversal changes and even behaves differently based on the water levels. One of those things that keeps OoT standing out to this day, it was the first 3D Zelda and still the most ambitious one even for the format as a whole. >mfw these are my geriatric yarns and this post is an old man moment
>>275703 Honestly I really like the water temple, and don't even mind the cyclically water level. The only thing that tripped me up as a child and again as an adult was that one key at the bottom of the central tower portion whose entrance only becomes visible after raising the water level. Other than that I really like it.

What RPG are ya playing? Just got done playing? Looking forward to playing? I just got done playing my second playthrough of Dragon's Dogma. I fucking love that game so much. I might try Two Worlds 2 just because of the magic system and what I've seen about it. I tried it for a little back when it first came out and got bored of it, so I never got to the point where I can do cool stuff with the magic. I might just play it to pass the time for something else. There's Tales of Arise that comes out in September but I'm not too confident about it. I don't care for the graphics change. The characters shown in the trailer don't really interest me. The open world at least looks more detailed than past Tales games. I can tolerate it as long as the combat is good this time around.

>>409270 Sounds a lot like Wizardry 4. But in both of those it's still a party against a bunch of bad (good) guys. >>409252 You see the rare female MC porn RPG play like that; usually it's a one-action-per-turn affair and they give you some party members one way or another. Giving a solo female MC a not-endgame way to take two actions is not uncommon in those games, but starting with more than one from the get-go is rare (but I think I've played one that did that, but I'm not certain). There are some fundamental balance problems with being one character playing against many in the traditional RPG milieu. Think of things like the standard status effects. It takes some effort to make instant death or petrification work when the PC only has one character. If you're already committed to not using those effects or doing the work of making them something they're traditionally not, that's one thing. As you mentioned, one of the reasons that you have separate characters is so that you can have separate roles for them, which brings in the turn order and character speed dynamics that would be missing if the party was just one character, among other things. Then you're only building/equipping one character. Without some kind of paradigm shift (each "action" gets its own equipment set and has its own place in the turn order, or something) you're limiting what is usually an important part of the traditional RPG gameplay. I guess the argument would be that this game's gameplay would be highly nontraditional, but that sort of game is the province of risk-taking devs. Also having just one PC in a party makes the traditional party interaction dynamics awkward. The Boss PC could certainly have noncombatant characters as foils, and they could be too weak to fight alongside him, I guess, or something like that. I think the type of game would certainly be doable (and probably has been done by some indie dev I know nothing about) but I think you'd end up with either a shallow rehashing of standard RPG memes that didn't work very well or some outre thing that would have to rewrite a lot of jRPG genre conventions to work or replace them with different gameplay entirely.
>>409252 >>409463 Mask of the Betrayer lets you ditch all party members (and even eat most of them) past the intro dungeon. This increase in XP lets you pick up Automatic Quicken Spell feat early, letting you cast two spells in one turn. Pathfinder: Kingmaker also allows you to make a single character and get loads more XP. Unlike the mostly core-only NWN2 stuff, Pathfinder has enough non-core stuff you can use this to pick up mid-level abilities that let you do more actions in a single turn rather early. (If the sequel, Wrath of the Righteous, has any of the action economy breaking abilities pnp Mythic did, I think it might also count. I don't recommend playing it though, as the source material was horrible, and everything I've seen of the game suggests it doubled down on Kingmaker's problems instead of fixing them.)

Make a Good 48 Hour Mega Man Level Anonymous 09/07/2021 (Tue) 01:10:28 Id: 40e135 No. 409251 [Reply]
It's finally out! https://magmmlcontest.com/48h.php >what is it Make a Good Mega Man level series is a set of Mega Man fan games based on releasing the tool set for a Mega Man fan-game engine and challenging people to Make a Good Mega Man Level with it. This particular game has the added gimmick of giving people a random "box" of stage gimmicks and forcing them to make a level with them in 48 hours. If you haven't already, play Make a Good Mega Man Level 1 Remastered and Make a Good Mega Man Level 2. Due to its nature MAG48HMML is obviously going to be much rougher in quality (though what I've played so far of the top levels is excellent) and since it just came out I'm sure there will be at least a v1.01 within the week. MAG24HMML is way too rough and not all that good, and Episode Zero is an interesting spinoff but really only something to play if you want more. >why should I play it? Do you like Mega Man and want to play some fun new stages? Yes? Well then play the series and this week's gameclub game ( >>409223 ) No? What's wrong with you?
1 post omitted.
>>409277 No. They run off the same base engine, but MAGMML offers much finer control over level creation, support for custom assets and more stuff to use in exchange for being much harder to work with and not having a system of level uploads (each level is manually added to a game, which takes a year to finalize). An example to illustrate this is City Under Seige, is a broken entry from the first challenge that accidentally deleted the floor's collision in random parts and became a running gag in the MAGMML series as a result. That kind of change is totally impossible (at least, without text editing to manually make tiles non-solid, but that's only used by people who really know what they're doing) in Mega Man Maker.
>>409317 Just how hard is it to make a level? I might try this if it's not too ridiculous.
>>409323 There is no level making in this. This is the compilation of playable levels submitted in the contest that was held over a year ago.

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.

Have you ever played a MOBA? From what I've seen the meme of League of Legends players being no-lifers is actually true. It's like the game completely absorbs a majority of their life. I've never actually played it and I don't think I want to, I'd probably fall easily into being addicted to it. The only MOBA's I've ever played were Smite, Pokemon Unite, and one that most people probably don't know about is Guardians of Middle-Earth. It was a Lord of the Rings MOBA and out of all the ones I've played I actually had fun playing that one. Smite was alright but I stopped playing it after about a week. I played Pokemon Unite for like one day and was actually playing good but the game is P2W so I dropped it.

What games would you say you are so good at that you could perhaps play on a competitive level if you wanted to? This includes speedrunning if you're into that gay shit. I thought I was pretty good at MvC2 when I played it the most. Probably could've gone to some small local tournaments and place myself in winner's bracket.

>>408306 I was pretty good at Destiny 2 when I used to play it. At the top of my team pretty often but certainly not without trash bad days. I'm not that great at FPS but that was the best I've ever been had a positive K/D. Monster Hunter is probably what I'm best at. I'd say I'm definitely one of the top like 5% non speedrunning autists. Again not perfect at it but when I compare myself to randoms and streamers I'm better than like 99% of them. >>408383 Reminded me I'm pretty damn good at Mario Kart too. Even including getting fucked by a blue shell, red shells, lighting, etc I would get 1st most of the time. Not including times I got fucked I win probably 95/100 races. I've only played 7 and 8 and 8 deluxe but that was my experience with those.
I have always been somewhat above average when it comes to shooters but as time goes on I find myself putting in less and less effort and it is starting to show as I can barely do Nightmare runs on Quake, Well done runs on Blood without constantly dying these days.
