40k Daemonhunters

Anyone else playing this game? It's yet another XCOM-like 40k game except - similar to Mechanicus - it's actually pretty good. I'm not terribly far in the game (soon after unlocking the "reapers" for each bloom seed) but I think I'm far enough to make a good review of the game, so here goes <Gameplay To preface this, note that I've been playing on the Ruthless difficulty (one above the 'normal' recommended) and on Grand Master mode, which is akin to Iron Man mode in XCOM. My experience may not be the same as yours if you played on normal difficulty and without Grand Master mode turned on. So far, I've been able to get through most missions without suffering major wounds. Never have my knights been 'critically injured' yet nor have any died, though they have taken enough wounds in battle to brush shoulders with death a few times. I don't know if this stands as proof of the game being too easy or just me being too damn good. Probably the former - though I will admit I've been playing rather cautiously. Missions will take me about 45 minutes to complete, or possibly an hour if it's an especially long one. Mechanics are functionally quite similar to XCOM except there is no 'accuracy' per se, in that sense it's more like Mechanicus where every shot that you can land will hit 100% of the time. I like there being reduced RNG in these instances, and the only actual RNG is in critical attacks, where the enemy will stand, or who they will attack and in what way. Your Grey Knights ship travels a sector of the galaxy and you get to decide which direction you go in order to complete missions which are each on a time limit. This means that often you may end up going for one mission and miss the two others since the one you chose has a higher priority or higher reward in some way. Each planet has 5 "infection levels" and if you miss a mission at said planet, the alert level goes up. Let it go to 5 and you must complete a very difficult mission to 'rescue' it or else. Let 5 planets succumb to infection and it's game over. There are 'interventions' and 'grand master reports' which will happen at random in between missions which sadly are very confusing to "figure out". For instance, I got an intervention where some cultists sprung up on my ship and I had to decide how it would be handled. Either let the purifier take a unit of your soldiers (I had very few to spare), let the inquisitor do her interrogating, or let the tech priest vent the heretic section of the ship into the void. Each one had downsides but they're not often clear with what the downsides are until AFTER you let it happen, so you can see how this can fuck with an Iron Man run where you can't load a save and try the other options on the fly. That's the nature of an ironman run, though. There's much more I can say about gameplay but I'll stop it here. I think the gameplay overall is quite nice and there certainly is some nice content to go with it, I feel like there is still much more content I haven't enjoyed yet which is a good sign to the game's replayability. <Story I won't say much but basically you're some Grey Knights stuck with an inquisitor who put you and your brothers on a mission to stop a rampant plague in the sector. To give the long and short of it, you're often thrust in between the wishes of your Grey Knight brother-purifier, the inquisitor bitch, and your tech-priest. Refusing one in favor of the other has bonuses and punishments. For instance in one event, you can backup your Inquisitor and gain research speed, but in turn your battle brother is pissed and you lose 50% experience points in the field for 30 (in-game) days. You can listen to your tech priest in favor of the bitch, which gains you some servitors (which are used for construction projects) but then you lose 50% research speed due to making the bitch mad. I feel like part of this is definitely lore-friendly and fits in with the MO of your typical radical Inquisitor (who, by the way, has put the entire team in danger multiple times) but my issue is that often the bitch is objectively correct, but she still decides to be a bitch about her decision which makes you really guilty for taking her side over your battle brothers. <Music Only got maybe 1 or 2 notable tracks but still nothing near the level that Mechanicus had. <Animations + Models The animations on the Grey Knights in battle (and the animations of enemies) is actually quite nice and you feel the impact they leave, though I will say the models, particularly of some of the enemies, just feels too cartoony which really contrasts with the backgrounds and the general tone of the game. This does take away from the animations which is at times quite nice like I said. HOWEVER! The animations on the Inquisitor, Ector, and the Tech Priest are noticeably different and very awkward. You'll see it for yourself if you watch a cutscene. Doesn't feel natural at all. At least the inquisitor has boob-armor and wide hips, I guess... Now that I've said my piece, anyone else who played it got any opinions to share?

Warner Bros. Multiversus

So this pile went into alpha today and people have been streaming it. Key takeaways: >It's kinda boring to watch and sucks for viewership >Animations are slow and lack punchiness, speed and impact >It's hard to tell what's going on most of the time in a 2v2 match because the move telegraphy and keyframing kinda sucks >The movesets aren't terribly cool or interesting <On a funny note, I've been watching one streamer play this all day and not a single person online has picked Steven Universe the whole time he's been streaming Since WB is apparently ready to go fullbore into this, already announcing a huge 2v2 Evo tournament with cash prizes, this game is probably gonna stick around for a while. Closed beta is next month and it's free to play so I'll probably give it a shot but so far I think it looks kinda lackluster. Still better than Nick All Stars Brawl though.

/tesg/ The Elder Scrolls general

Never browse this board but figured it'd be a better place for this than making a /tes/ board with no users. Just started an autistic challenge I've set myself of beating Morrowind only using alchemy. No weapons, armour, spellcasting, no use of enchanted items. Picked an Argonian not just to fuck with the Dunm*r that their nectarine is a lizard, but for obvious starting benefits. I am not even going to hand to hand if I can help it. All damage will eventually be from reflect damage and reflect spell potions. So it's a lot of mages guild stuff and grinding to begin with.

2hu Gud-Getting Thread: PCB Edition

It's time to leave secondary status, anons. That's right, it's another 2hu thread. This is a revengeance of the Touhou 6 thread we had a while back. Now's your chance to take on Perfect Cherry Blossom so you can finally 1cc it on normal if you haven't already. 2hu pros can brag about how they 1cc'd it on hard or captures Yuyuko's final card. >Where do I get it? Best place for 2hu downloads is Moriya Shrine. Here's a link: >What do I do? Simply keep the options as they are by default. Slow mode turned off, 3 lives, wav music (for best experience). Then you just play the game and beat all stages without having to use a continue, hence the word '1cc' Here's another 2hu term you may not know about. To 'capture' a spell card (basically a boss' special named attack) is to beat it without getting hit or using a bomb. Pros can venture to capture most if not all spell cards in the game, which in PCB's case is, rightfully so, the last spellcard in the game. >How do I get gud? That's the hard part. I haven't been playing as long as some people but I can coach it pretty well. Now, I'm not a lunatic or even a hard player but hey, some of the best coaches were overweight black people or drunkards, so a coach doesn't need to be the best, right? Anyways, some tips I can give depend on your physical talents/skills. What do I mean by this? Well, listen closely. Find whichever you may fall into and then use the below tip to 'guide' how to get gud. <I'm young, spry, and I think I have good reaction timing In your case, you will want to try the tactic I call 'double-vision'. Your player-character in this game has a hitbox which is represented by a small white dot, you can view this by pressing shift by default. Why do I bring this up? Because if you have good hand-eye coordination, it will be important to keep track of where this dot is; however, you must not be looking directly at it! You should instead keep your eyes about halfway from your hitbox and the boss, or wherever the bullets are coming from. The explanation is that every bullet has a trajectory, a pattern, and/or a trick to them. You will want to view both the hitbox and the projected bullet trajectory/path/pattern so you can dodge them effectively. If you're doing this right, your line of sight should be mostly on the bullets with the hitbox still being in your 'range' of vision, but just outside so that it appears blurry and you aren't focused on it. The point is that you know where the hitbox is without even seeing it, but you'll be in control of it with your keyboard so it isn't that hard to guess where it is - or where it will be. By mastering this, you'll mostly be able to beat every spell card without even having faced it before, or without having memorized how each spell card works. Which leads us to... <I'm older and my reaction timing isn't what it used to be In your case, you may have a harder time but victory isn't beyond reach. Your best bet is recognizing the patterns or even going so far as to memorize a spell card's trajectory and its tactics. Most every bullet fired in this game is based off of your position, so a reigning tactic is to 'setup' a wave of bullets so that it favors you. Unfortunately this does require some memorization and planning ahead, but if your reaction timing is slower or not refined, this may be your only shot at victory. Luckily for you, the touhou games were designed to let you be able to win, theoretically, without needing to use a bomb - much unlike other shoot-em-up bullet hells out there. <I'm somewhere in the middle In your case, just use a combination of the double vision tactic I described, plus memorizing some spell cards! No matter what league you're in, or what skill level, you should not be ashamed to use practice mode to train on specific bosses or spell cards that give you trouble. You do need to beat said boss before they open to you in practice mode, but you can access them even if you use a continue, so you dont have to worry about perfection the first time around. >But I don't want to practice over and over like this is a chore! Think of it no differently than grinding in an RPG for EXP or some essential item. This is basically the same thing, and just think about how satisfying it will be when you train hard enough to capture a spell card you'd consistently die on previously! With that said, post your scores and encourage other anons! Don't worry about the other games in the series for now, just focus on this. Discuss the extra boss, 2hu girls in general, and your own strategies for 'gitting gud'

Linux/FOSS Gaming

So it turns out EAC supporting proton was a massive meme and when a dev actually looked into enabling it he realized it was only for a specific version of EAC that essentially no games even use because it's tied to Epic Games Online services. So everyone thinking that this would mean they could suddenly play all the EAC games on steam by the time the steam dick dropped are likely going to get fucked. > So we have looked in to this. It's far more complex than first suspected -- EAC has two versions. Non-EOS and EOS (Epic Online Services). Most games historically use Non-EOS EAC. It's the one Vermintide 2 uses as well. Epic only added Proton support for the EOS version of EAC. Therefor in order to implement proton support for Vermintide 2, a huge amount of reworking of the EAC implementation would be required, which may also require all players to authenticate with Epic Online Services as well -- perhaps even logging in to the Epic environment (to be confirmed, however). >So the "just a few clicks" statement made in the original announcement wasn't entirely accurate, and would only apply to titles using the EOS version of EAC, which simply hasn't been many games aside from either pretty new ones, and likely predominantly Epic exclusive titles. >We are still looking at what is or isn't going to be possible, but it's not as easy as it was made out to be -- far from it in fact. >There may be other solutions or workarounds, but ripping out the old EAC and rewriting everything to implement "NuEAC" and potentially asking our entire playerbase to connect through and sign through EOS for an honestly tiny market share that was (and would remain) unsupported from the get go might be a deal breaker.

Playing two versions of the same game

Through some circumstances, I have a several games where I own different versions of them, and I wanted to hear how other Anons deal with this circumstance. To provide examples of just a few of the games, I have Half-Life for both the Dreamcast and PC, Splinter Cell for both the GameCube and PC, and Lego Star Wars: Complete Saga for DS and Wii. In the example of Lego SW, both versions of the game are far different from the other despite being the same basic premise and design. Splinter Cell covers the same story on both systems, but have differently designed levels while retaining the same gameplay. And, Half-Life is the same game for both Dreamcast and PC, with the only difference being a slight graphical upgrade on the Dreamcast. I was wondering, if I complete one version of the game, does that effectively make the other version redundant?

They have been censoring VN's intensely for years now and only get worse with each purchase. If theres no other means to support, try torrenting or erogedownload or another alternative. As for me: Was going through Tsukihime for the first time a few weeks ago had to take a break because of a hard interview and enjoyed it a lot. Music wasn't anything spectacular, but characters were fascinating and had tons of depth. Finished the Arcueid route, still need to go through all the others. Also went through another run of Sengoku Rance, trying to max out on end-game points. Its a lot more fun with overpowered characters and the Masamune family, plus got all the reinforcements, each one is cute in their own way. Probably gonna try out more from Key/Type Moon after doing Tsukihime, was very impressed with it. Any anons here try out Fate Stay/Night or any other notable VN's?

Vidya Levels

What are some of the best levels/maps you've played? Whether it's the physical layout of the map, some crazy shit that goes down on it, the aesthetics, or some other niche part of it that you enjoy without really understanding. You can also post maps you've made for games, like stuff in Source's Hammer, I've found the level design in Metroid Prime to be really atmospheric, each area felt unique with the combination of the environments, music, and enemies all tying everything together. Phendrana Drifts really sticks out, and overall I like the design more in 1 than in 2, there was more variety and stuff to look at than just "sad world corrupt by evil". One of my other favorite levels is the farmhouse shootout in Splinter Cell, it's set up almost like a tower defense where you have to defend a bunch of captured burgers and bugmen from rusia monkes trying to silence them. You have a short time beforehand to set up wall mines and place other traps to stop the slav hordes from coming, as well as two automatic turrets at your disposal that also shoot at you as well so don't stand in front of them. I used to dick around with Hammer a lot, making maps for Garry's Mod and Team Fortress 2, but I never released any of them simply because I didn't want to release anything that was unfinished nor did I really have the time or motivation to invest into them. I still have most of the VMFs, except for the dam level that I would work on in the back of class that my history teacher called "Escape from Dachau". Good times.

FFXIV - Endwalker Edition

>How to play the free trial Do not try to sign up using steam, you can download the trial through steam if you want, but sign up using this link. Doubly so for linux users Right now Squeenix has decided to fuck over linux users who have the steam version. It is reportedly unplayable for some people (the launcher doesn't work, thus game cannot launch.) Don't do it. >Linux? Works fine under linux and has lutris scripts, though I'd recommend using the custom FOSS launcher for the game as the default one can crash and is generally just shit. This is true for Windows as well. The FOSS launcher saves your password so you don't need to type it in every time you boot the game. >Which data center/server? Some anons are playing on Primal Exodus. Crystal is the RP/tranny data center. You can play with people within your data center. In the new expansion they're going to add the ability to play with people cross data centers as well, so come November it won't matter as much if you're on some random data center and want to play with anons. You can transfer characters afterwards, but its very time dependent if you don't want to pay 18$. Some restrictions are there between datacenters/servers. >Free trial limitations tl;dr you can't whisper people, can't add friends but can be added by others, can't create parties but can be invited to them, can't join guilds, and can't use the auction house or retainers. Only is Free Trial up to level 60, which includes Heavensward. >Is it worth playing? I would say so. Apparently there are even communities dedicated to strictly free trial content which includes the Heavensward content. There's a lot of leveling content to do as well as things like the Golden Saucer which has a lot of fun mini-games and jump puzzles you can do for mounts and cosmetics. You might get 100-200+ hours out of just the free trial if you pushed it far enough.

The Zelda Formula

I've played a decent chunk of the Zelda games by this point and feel that the series has evolved enough to fully realize those feelings evoked by looking at the concept art for the earlier games, which, in my opinion, is the end goal. BotW is effectively a reboot more inspired by the earlier games as opposed to the ones inspired by ALttP and eventually OoT, and while it does do plenty wrong like lacking proper dungeons, limited enemy variety, and no special equipment, I consider it to be an important step design philosophy and a remarkable improvement in pacing from WW, TP, and SS (as well as being the better game in general). With the new one releasing and being a direct sequel, we can be reasonable and assume that it will be like the first game, so instead of focusing on that, how do you want hypothetical subsequent Zelda games to feel? Also, post Zelda girls.

Japanese games causing butthurt

I've noticed in the past six years there has been a massive amount of butthurt towards Japanese games and Devs especially in the cases of >Nier Automata >Persona 5/Royal >Elden Ring Where the following sold millions of copies despite being weird or niche games that normally be only talked about by autist here or other sites. With the case of Elden Ring major 12 mill success you had Western Devs frothing at the mouth in sheer anger over it along with hating on the Japanese in general, it's been an interesting time seeing this all unfold in real time. Regardless if you dislike Japanese games or even the three heavy hitters listed you do have to admit this whole situation is a well deserved kick in the bollocks for the years of utter contempt the western industry has had for their base.

Is "Half-Life" actually good?

This appears to be much dispute taking place in the "Western game req" thread, so I figured that I'd make a topic about it to see what general Anons actually think about it. And, this doesn't belong in the QTDDTOT thread since it's such a detailed discussion. So, let's get to the question: Is Half-Life considered to be one of (If not) the greatest game ever made, or is it just an impressive tech demo? In my personal opinion, I just wasn't that impressed with Half-Life as it felt like a first-person platformer that had combat slapped on top of it, in addition to being somewhat directionless in it's story until towards the end (With Xen being the best part of the game).This appears to be much dispute taking place in the "Western game req" thread, so I figured that I'd make a topic about it to see what general Anons actually think about it.

Localization and censorship thread

Gather here all you got on these niggers we need a permanent thread documenting the toll that liberal faggots place on freedom of information additionally providing info on games in question. >Pic 1: Prudish mutt couldn't handle a simple instance of innocent skinship and suggestive undertones towards a little girl, american popular media nowadays openly and shamelessly teaches kids faggotry, transvestism, promiscuity, infidelity, atheism and God knows what the fuck else, but something like that is of course a no-no, same-old, same-old, as far as I know there's no content differentiation between western and jp versions of the game, so just switching the language to Japanese should fix everything. >Second screenshot is Zanki Zero: Last Beginning, some kind of Dungeon Crawler from Spike Chunsoft, absolute pieces of shit cut every instance of loli lewdity from it, it released on PS4, Vita and Steam and so far unabridged versions available only on Japanese console versions of the game, yes, they made it impossible to play this game anywhere overseas, all you can do is import psychical copy over from Japan (goes without saying, finding a pirated copy of jp rom for those would be nigh impossible, so hopefully someone contributes), why the fuck Chunsoft allows their games to be renditioned by those fuckwads is beyond my understanding >What follows next are quotations and ramblings of those very fuckwads, only in modern western world there's such a case of lecherous incompetent opinionated cunts being given jobs and responsibility to the work they prove to be nothing but detrimental. There are many games affected negatively by them that warrant many layers of discussions for now I'll handpick a few from the top of my head: >Fire Emblem Fates' western release as you all know was brutishly butchered (so were many other games from that time i don't remember what exact agency is to be held accountable) , it was not only severely censored with removal of vital features, but translators couldn't have made it more apparent how little fucks they gave about any semblance of "quality control" and as a result we received a very half assed product with asinine script and made up (or sometimes absent) dialogue in many places Three Houses didn't suffer any game content change, but the end localized script is nothing short of infuriating with how many fucking intentional mistranslations those assholes made, it seems as thought every line that didn't fit their personalized political agenda had needed to go, it's fucking astonishing how nintendo doesn't give a shit about all this. Aside from that the game also didn't have the best or the most accurate of localizing quality, you can check up in-deapth on instances of such in this forum:, script comparison postings of Three Houses and many other butchered games as well as Japanese media in general are very big there. >Persona I can't say much about preceding games, but Persona 5 famously received an extremely shit translation with no professionality to speak of, so much that it warranted an entire website created complaining on it: Persona 5 Royal suffered many changes in that already shit script, again, to conform to liberal americunt standarts. Similar things can be said about virtually any west-imported Japanese game and game franchises of the last decade and a half , we all remember what treatment Kiseki series had, the nightmares they had wrought out of many Wii-U games, etc etc, , what we undoubtedly can deduce from this is that they are not about to back down, the liberal cancer that is controlling information loves and will continue to do so, what we have, I'd say, is absolutely zero excuse not to learn Japanese every moment of the day, but of course that wouldn't cover everything, there will be cases similar to zanki zero's, there will be cases of censorship being even on Japanese versions of games, what I want is to bring light upon those crimes, every one of them should be well known.

Also, in an e-mail from Ohshima to Fujimoto, he wrote: 'I just told the staff about the demo delay. When I told them, 'This was prod. Fujimoto's decision. Let's do our best for him,' the staff applauded and cheered. This was unexpected, and I was moved... the staff's been down lately, but their spirits have been revived. Thank you very much. All of us on the staff will work hard.' So the schedule wasn't up to me, but the producer, yet the schedule being tight was the producer's doing. Something was off. we were releasing an original game, but only putting out an arranged track was definitely wrong. I believe that the game music that everyone can hum out are the original tracks. >I believe that every effort must be put in to make games the best they can be until the very end so that game fans will enjoy what they buy. It wasn't right to, without discussion, remove and completely disassociate from the project a director saying so myself, I'm truly sorry to the customers who bought Balan Wonderworld in an unfinished state. From this point onward, I will be able to react to posts tagging me or directed only toward me on SNS and such. Honestly this explains a fuckton like with the bad localizations, the shit games, the remakes, etc.

Videogame Aesthetics

I made this thread more to vent about how microtransactions and skins have completely ruined games aesthetically and how everything looks like the same pastel fucking garbage because they just throw in silly garbage for redditors to "be silly". But let's have a thread just discussing aesthetics in various videogames. I miss the dingy industrial dirty feeling Killing Floor had before Tripjew completely raped it dead with their greed.

Tactics Games

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.

The most obscure game you like

I want to hear about some games I've never seen before. I'm sick of "hidden gem" lists that are made entirely of games that were big for their time and are just being forgotten because it was from two console generations ago. Obscurity is the top priority. Ideally a game you enjoy, but mostly one you don't think anyone else has heard of. My example is Plaque Attack. Think Space Invaders mixed with Missile Command where you play a toothpaste tube shooting at food. One (for the time) novel aspect is that you can move around the play field and are defending two sets of teeth.

About an hour long footage for the cancelled Arkane studios Half Life game called "Return to Ravenholm" is released. Shows the progress made before being shelved. Looks okayish. From the looks of it even in this incomplete state it looks obvious its not a valve game, but the zombie action looks decidedly more suited to adrian shepherd.

RimWorld and Dwarf Fortress

Please post pics of your colonies too, as I want to see how badly my own stack up.

Underrail Thread: Gypsy Edition

Been a while since we've had a thread about serbian Fallout. Recently some anon on half/v/ did a lot of crunching testing gypsy charm effects. Turns out most of them actually do something, although the effects vary in power depending on a large number of obscure factors (like how much you treat gypsy magics as real during the dialogue with Coral) and depending on current time IRL they might not work at all. >Burrower Tarsus Charm: Increases critical chance of throwing knives when having high enough armor penalty >Coil Spider Tarsus Charm: Increases electrical damage taken, possibly increases maximum EK bolt jump distance >Death Stalker Claw Charm: Makes you slightly harder to detect >Hopper Foot Charm: Increases critical chance with weapons and unarmed attacks >Psi Beetle Claw Charm: Increases critical chance with psi abilities but reduces resolve >Siphoner Foot Charm: Increases chance to inflict bleed >Warthog Foot Charm: Increases Fortitude when under effect of food items, but reduces it when the duration of the buff is below 25% I hear that all charm bonuses are factored in somewhere in the middle of calculations for any given tick, so there's no way to see their effects in any of the stats windows. tl;dr <Gypsy charms have real effects, but they are extremely inconsistent and fairly weak still.

/v/ makes the most inclusive video game character ever

Hello, /v/. Would you like to play a game? For those of you not aware, Blizzard reveals the latest way they make the most inclusive characters vidya has ever seen - this soulless checkbox-filler described in the picture and this archive: >“An important principle for us at King is that all players should feel welcome,” says Chomatas. “The intention is to inspire game teams not just at King, but throughout the Activision Blizzard King network, to think outside the box and challenge pre-conceived notions around how characters should look and act. As a result, hopefully we will create more characters that break the mold, and better represent women, non-binaries and other under-represented minorities in the industry.” So it got me thinking, let's show the world who's the most in-touch with the under-represented. Enter - /v/ MAKES THE MOST INCLUSIVE VIDEO GAME CHARACTER EVER! We'll have anons describe the least-offensive, most inclusive, most degenerate, most diverse Overwatch character, fitting every box that the Blizzardfriends have left for us. Victory will only occur after we have maxxed out the graph entirely in every single category. We can then see if a drawfag would like to draw this marvelous character for everyone's enjoyment. >How do I play? Simply redtext three characteristics at most each post, with the goal in mind of this character being as cultured, non-age-discriminatory, sexually-progressive, racially diverse, least ableist, most alternatively-beautiful (think less of a Disney princess and more like a Stephen Universe gem), etc as possible. If your suggestions are shit, and most anons agree, your idea can be thrown out, so put some effort into it. Pozz your mind as much as possible, we cannot let Blizzard outdo us here. For the sake of setting an example, I'll go first. <Bugchaser <Half Aboriginal, half Arab <Dirt poor

Wii U

I have some questions about the Wii U, because I just got one in excellent condition, for free. I know it can be jailbroken. My goals with it are: - Play emulated NES, GB, GBC, GBA, SNES, N64, and Sega Genesis games - Play emulated arcade - Maybe emulate consoles I never tried, like Wonderswan and Neo Geo Pocket - Play Game Cube, Wii and Wii U games - Play unofficial ports, like Super Mario 64 HD, and Zelda Ocarina of Time HD if it someone makes it - Play WiiWare games I don't really care if it loses internet capabilities, but if it retains them, maybe I'll use stream services. The thing is, I've decided to become frugal. I have a Nintendo Switch and I buy games for it only if I really care about them, and I'll be spending as little as possible ongames from now on. My PC is for work, not for gaming. Also, in my house there's only one TV, so it would be perfect if I could play games using the Wii U pad if my wife wants to use the TV. So here are my questions: - Will I need external USB hard drives? Or USB memory sticks with a lot of storage space? I'd prefer to keep large collections of games always ready to use. - How well does MAME run on this system? - Will I be risking bricking the console if I keep it connected to the internet? - How many streaming services work with the Wii U? - What kinds of controllers that normally wouldn't be compatible with the Wii U can I use? - Is it possible to use an original N64 controller with the Wii U? Thanks.

3 Essentials when developing a videogame

Whether making a 2D or 3D game, there are 3 things you need to get right, that a lot of new games fail at. >Animation Even back in the 3rd gen, animations have been a vital. It differentiates an animate being from a boring corpse. It also says all you need to know about a character without saying a word. Rareware and early Naughty Dog did this pretty perfectly. When making Crash Bandicoot his expressions were top priority. Nowadays animation is done just to get the job done. It's rare to see a game that communicates through its frames. >In-game UI An UI fitting of the game is really important. Sometimes, even no UI is a good fit like in the DKC games. There's hundred of games I've seen in which the UI is either boringly simplistic or ugly to look at. Things like an unique font and rotating pre-rendered icons always add charm since they are things you'll look at through out your entire playthrough. >SFX Music is quite important, but something a lot of developers overlook or take for granted is sound effects. They breath life into the game. They dictate whether shooting, jumping, punching or collecting will be satisfying or feel like a chore to do. Collectathons like Spyro and Banjo wouldn't be the same if the collecting sounds weren't fun to listen to. Doom's shotgun wouldn't be the same without that powerful shooting sound followed by that satisfying reloading sfx. What do you think? Can you think of any good and bad examples of these?

Nicks, Usernames, Names and Gamertags

How do you come up with a good username? A generator, things around you, characters or names you know? What about character names? Do you spend a long time mulling over names during creation, trying to make it fit the world? What makes a good name anyway? Short and simple, long and unique, funny, stupid, confusing, a bunch of cool <^>symbols<^> and xXxlettersxXx? I remember Xbox Live used to generate account names by combining adjective+noun, so you'd get stuff like tenuredwhale88 and friskydingo69. You could always tell who was a retard because they'd have a name like that instead of something unique. Most games used to let you change in-game names willy-nilly, but that's not as common anymore or if it's possible it's limited.

Looking for something

A few years back (we're talking post-GG, 2015 - 2016ish) a group of /v/tards noticed there was a BIG, co-ordinated push to lionize Undertale as one of the greatest games of all time. There was a large, developed theory that this happened because Undertale was the first game developed by a Tumblrite to have a massive effect on the gaming community. The ambiguous, androgynous design of Frisk, the powerful female Toriel, Mettaton EX's flamboyant appearance, and the push for the player to get through the storyline without fighting/killing anyone were all brought up at some point, and a few detailed screencaps were produced. I'm sure I have it on a HD somewhere, and I'll try looking for it if no-one finds what I'm talking about. pic unrelated

MMO Thread

Figured why not since the old thread is gone. Been playing anything recently? Sorry to any of the anons I was playing SMT: Imagine with. I still love the game but I dropped it for Endwalker and then I just got tired of Endwalker due to the connection issues. Just started this PC port of a mobile MMO called Toram Online today and it's as you expect. I'm just playing it out of boredom. I do like MMOs with PS2 graphics though. I checked up on PSU and it seems there's some dramafaggotry going on with the development team. Basically one of the developers who put a lot of work into Clementine left because he was being bullied by the community.

Fire Emblem's weird direction and a possible future?

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 Fire Emblem's final game >Awakening starts >Its mostly new staff >Decide to make a game that is an amalgamation of all the previous games, somehow >They manage to do it on zero budget >Story is fantasy Francish Kingdom, now a Fantasy Franc kingdom post-fantasy Charlemagne, fighting against fantasy Persia, founded by fantasy Brettons that became a cult and fucked over fantasy France and fantasy Brittain a 1000 years ago >(you) are some retarded amnesiac that buff Marth finds while travelling >Buff Marth is heralded along with his sister as the new coming of Marth and the most important people in the universe <Obviously evil guy tells (you) that (you) are actually the most important person in the whole universe and that (you) are the true ubermensch >(you) are actually some retarded bookworm with 0 social skills and the only cool thing you have is a weird tattoo <Turns out that being an ubermensch according to the cult means having a suitable body for the fucking Dragon Gimli, the ender of Ragnarok, to inhabit and destroy the world >Shit pants <Time travel also happens <In the nip version, it is implied that (your) kid, Marc, isn't from the same timeline and they're an alternate universe (you) that travelled with Lyn, Eliwood and Hector, just like (you) are implied to have done as well >Story basically concludes with fantasy France, fantasy Russia, who also happen to magically have some fantasy Ainu people among them, fantasy Brittain and (you) basically stop Ragnarok and save the world forever <Gameplay is weirdly balanced but one can make it work, depending on what Fire Emblem he liked in the past >Game is treated with respect in Japan, it's the ultimate closure <Game seels like hotcakes in the west <It's the ultimate waifu-husbando simulator and eugenics program <Localization botches all the references and connections to almost ALL previous Fire Emblems and the nods to specific things that nips knew, like Priam named Paris because Ike was originally named Paris in order to hit home that he hailed from fantasy Troy >Nami Komoru steps up and is awarded for her success <She basically created just two characters and wrote about a dozen support conversations but she also did twitter campaigns to promote the game <At the time, a certain section of tumblr that stalked japanese twitter for cult-of-personality tweets caught wind of it and spread the word and a boost in sales happened so here we are Fire Emblem helmed under Nami Komoru >Let's have a new start for Fire Emblem >Sounds good, we got a new team, new budget <Nami Komoru is at the helm, gets total control of the project, contracts 5 differen expensive authors and mangaka to write dialogue and support for the game <WITHOUT GIVING THEM CONTEXT OR ANY WAY TO COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER <WHILE SHE WRITES THE SCENARIO FOR ALL ROUTES AND THE CHARACTERS >Gameplay is also shit and exacerbates the few flaws that Awakening had and multiplies them by 1000% >She has the genius idea of doing Fantasy Medieval times vs Fantasy Japan >Of course Fantasy Japan are the super good guys without flaws >Fucking Kamui / Corrin is Kris but a thousand times worse and more obnoxious >Revelations is basically a straight rip-off of Gundam Seed and Kamui is straight up Kira Yamato <Somehow the localization is even worse than the game >Everything is absolute cancer about <It's got the highest sales as a game at the time <Especially due to censorship controversies and due to western tumblrtards spreading lies about the game being LGBTBBQ friendly due to Zero / Niles, who's basically Nami Komoru's yaoi fantasy voiced by Takehito Koyasu >Fire Emblem Warriors starts <The production s troubled, devs don't know what to do, you know how it goes >Team Ninja members make the two main characters of FEW as a blonde Ax Wielder and a blonde Lance Wielder <We could have had Blond Ephraim and Blonde FemHector >The original plan was for Darius to be the secret Sword Wielder Lord that was recruited later >Intelligent Systems suddenly is interested and yoinks the designs

"Cult" games that are actually shit

Leave here your grievances with games popular with the more refined audience (that means no cowadoody and other normalnigger games) that are actually bad, or at least not as good as they're made out to be. Back it up with arguments, this is not some low effort unpopular opinion thread. >E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy Made out to be some real kickass game, is in fact a series of big empty Gmod maps with infinitely respawning enemies where you run around doing generic objectives like "press button" and "kill enemy". Enemies have god awful AI and either know exactly where you are at all times or turn off their brains and ignore you when you're shooting in front of them. They're about as satisfying to kill as NPCs you spawn in Gmod, which is to say not at all, especially not for the fifty billionth time with how excessively you're gonna be mowing down never ending waves of enemies. Nearly all of them fit into 2 varieties, the gun enemies and the melee enemies that run after you, which for the most part all behave the same. Egregiously repetitive and absolute dreadful shit. The only good aspects are the cool armor designs for E.Y.E. characters and some of the environments. >Recettear Dungeons are bad and very unprofitable. Repetitive as fuck, cheaply random generated shit and enemies might as well have been copypasted from some stock game asset library with how extremely uninspired they are. Dungeons are half the gameplay and necessary to progress the plot and unlock new shit, so you can't ignore them either. >Project Zomboid A tale of disappointment and wasted potential. Glacially slow development since released under early access in 2013, still has no late game content, no enemy variety, no survivor NPCs, no animal NPCs and no death machine vehicles. With no overarching late game objective, there is nothing to do after finishing your safehouse, except survive just for the sake of it and explore samey places that contain nothing special. Developers are more concerned with polishing animations and sounds instead of adding actual meat to the game. >Mount & Blade: Warband Single player is a tech demo, has a bunch of neat ideas but is ultimately invalidated by its insurmountable length and lack of content and depth. Very few quests and interactions, very shallow diplomacy and intrigue. Early game and mid game can be fun, but once you reach the late game it's pretty much over in terms of fun. The only thing left to do then is to conquer the map for your faction, which is an indescribably grindy and insanely repetitive drag, so much that 99% of players will get bored and stop playing. Multiplayer, though, was a completely different game and I had great fun with it, but it's fucking dead.

Cool little details in games that aren't touched on

Silent Hill: Downpour >Has an achievement for not murdering any monster in a playthrough >Literally, as in the legal definition of murder >You don't get the achievement if you attack and kill a monster on the ground, which is considered murder in court >You don't get penalized for self-defence, ie striking someone who is up and attacking you >The fact that the monsters are all humanoid aside from the void chase sections might not be laziness, since Murphy has no issues with animals or internal problems, all of his problems are external, are people he wanted revenge on, his son, his marriage, people who are blackmailing him etc. Silent Hill 4 >The reason Henry Townshend's lines are so droll is because he has sleep deprivation since the room doesn't allow him to have actual restful sleep due to nightmares >He is also notably shy, and has an obsession with photographs, one of which was even a personal gift by the apartment complex's owner, Frank Sunderland. >Essentially every interaction he has with people is him "spilling his spaghetti", one of his first being asking a dying bloody woman on the floor if she's okay, having low social skills >If you've ever had this sort of friend you'd know this is actually something excessively shy people do >The reason for the overuse of stock sounds was mainly because the game was originally going to be a horror theme action game ala Devil May Cry, but Konami told the team to turn that shit around, giving them less development time. This also explains the lack of puzzles. The inventory system was an attempt to keep the game more actiony tension-wise, because you had to switch between options in real time. Also, after the dev team split up, some of the members went on to create Siren 1 and 2, which honestly shows. I basically only know tibits about the silent hill series. Anyone else got stuff?

Final Fantasy XVI latest trailer already complete and coming soon

For those who haven't heard, the new Final Fantasy trailer should be airing likely next month during "E3". Apparently the trailer was delayed from spring to early summer and is already complete with development of the title being in the final stretch. The reason this game is more interesting than say XV or Kingdom Hearts is because it's being directed by Yoshi-P aka the guy who saved Final Fantasy 14 and the combat is being designed by Ryota Suzuki which is the same guy who designed Dragon's Dogma and Devil May Cry 5. It seems Square is going all out for this game and I hope the corporate meddling doesn't fuck it up too badly, but then again this is the same company who sold Deus Ex and Tomb Raider for a meager 300 million, so who knows.

No they made it because they needed to milk the AoE2 fanbase for nostalgia. if they wanted to be safe, they could have just rebooted it. There is still no Rise of Nations 2 which was planned, but instead they went to mobile market. No EE4, no Warcraft 4, no starcraft 3, no C&C 4 remake and much much more. Good news. There are. 0.

Odd games that are good.

Thread to drop in and talk about some game you're pretty sure not many people have played but you have and it was good. I played this game called "Monster Girls and the Mysterious Adventure" which came out in like 2020 and now has a sequel in early access. It's a traditional Roguelike in gameplay but you can recruit monster girls who keep their levels between runs (are capped) and it's just really comfy. First dungeon is like 36 floors then you unlock about 5-6 more and after that you get 2 more, 1 with a ludicrous 1000 floors with checkpoints every 100 and a 200 floor dungeon where you play as the monster girls. MC is a girl in random dialogue so don't expect to dick any of the girls when playing.

Been quite interested in getting "The last cube", though I am unsure if my pc can actually run it, it is quite similar to cu-on-pa. Anyways, I am quite the firm believer that "Kula world" and it's unofficial sequel, "Cubosphere", is the gold standard as far as puzzle-platformers are concerned. I've also been a bit interested in "Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker", though I don't have a switch.

Pleasant Surprises

Have you ever been pleasantly surprised playing a game where your expectations were set low? Doesn't have to be the entirety of the game, maybe some small element of it. I'd like to highlight Call of Duty Black Ops 1's campaign, which was really quite nice. Had pretty big names in it just like World at War (Gary Oldman, for one) which added to the quality of the overall story, which was stellar. I like conspiracy themes in grounded stories, as well, so the overarching mystery of the campaign's plot really had me hooked, and the subtext, if you look into it, is amazing. MKULTRA, JFK second/multiple shooters, Vietnam mind control, etc. All really cool shit. Now, I won't go into the multiplayer since it's pretty standard as far as CoD goes, though I will comment that it was fun while it lasted Zombies is also a neat little gimmicky game mode despite being a worse Killing Floor. The main draw of this game, however, has got to be the campaign.

I’m 3 hours in and all I’ve down is walk to a place twice (maybe 30 minutes of gameplay) and had 2 and a 1/2 hours of exposition vomited at me about a story that I have no investment in yet. Also I put the game on easy because it got really annoying that this retard doesn’t even know how to fucking TURN without falling over like a normal goddamn human being. I’m usually on board with Kojimbo’s bullshit, but this is burning through my goodwill fast. It feels pretty disrespectful of my time, and while a couple of the mechanics I like like balancing the loads or navigating unstable terrain, but the BTs being annoying interruptions or being incapable of basic human shit like FUCKING TURNING are turning me off, and as I said I have no investment in this world yet. I guess I’m just kind of ranting. It feels stupid to spend 3 hours on a game and gotten barely anything out of it, I could have finished a pulp novel in that time.

Xeno Thread

The long rumored Xenoblade 3 just got announced and it seems like most of the rumors were true. I figured it was best to start an actual thread rather than just post in the Direct one. What are your thoughts? Did being cucked drive Nia and Melia mad? Is Mio actually related to Nia? Will any other past characters show up? Will this be the end of the “blade” games and the next ones will be Xeno-something else? Talk about any of these things. Or just post lewd fanart. That’s fine too.

A new trailer for Fire Emblem: Three Fates has dropped. It shows off the new MC, a merc that was supposed to be forgotten, with choice of A or B body types gender. It also shows some new tactical options such as directing allies to use abilities in certain areas as well as the cancerous "team up" waifu/husbando bullshit that has plagued the series since Awakening. In more traditional musuo discussion, how is Samurai Warriors 5? I'm thinking of trying it out on Xbox.

Sequels That Learned From the Mistakes of their Predecessor

A thread about the opposite of >>518688 Instead of sequels that fucked everything up, let's talk about sequels to not-so-great games that fixed everything. MegaMan Battle Network 2 The first game was a GBA launch title, and restarted development several times. As a result it was super rough around the edges and the combat system never really used the full extent of it possibilities. 2 on the other hand >introduces * code chips so its easier to build a synergistic folder >makes all chips flow in others better >replaces the weird armor system of the first game that did nothing but give you a resistance with a unique style system where you got various power ups in exchange for an element weakness, further pushing the player toward never getting hit >main internet is no longer just a straight line with the occasional shortcut Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon >reduces many of the chores vs. the Soulless Army had >the player has infinite mundane ammo, so they no longer have to keep buying more despite the cost being negligible >letting them conduct demon fusion from any save point so you don't constantly have to backtrack >combat system is way smoother >introduced fiend battles so every dungeon has some tension >introduced choices and law/chaos alignment so Raidou does more in cutscenes than look dumb >demon recruitment is now done by the series recruitment dialog, which is predictable per demon type, rather than a button mashing minigame >not every area has random encounters Fire Emblem 7 The sixth game was the first from a new dev team, and the seventh is on the same engine. >after some of the worst map design in the series (literally linear corridors) with one objective comes some varied map design with a good number of objectives >after the really shallow cast of the sixth game (half had no personality, a quarter had a one note personality) comes possibly the most fleshed out cast in the series <even the antagonist has depths if you 100% the game and connect all the dots >character stats are reasonable enough its no longer a coin flip if the RNG renders them useless and a far greater percent of the cast is actually useful >weapon stats rebalanced so axes lances and swords are all usable >no sacae route Street Fighter II There's a reason nobody talks about the original Street Fighter. You can't even fix it in a remake because there's nothing to build on. At most you'd just have a game that takes Street Fighter's place in the timeline, for all five people that care about the series canon.

Anyone remember Scarlet Blade

I never played it, myself since I've always had a strong aversion to mmos, but I'd always see ads for it growing up. When I look online I hear people saying that the game is either "passible" to "actually pretty good" Is it? I'm probably still not going to play it, but I always assumed it was a trash game based on the ads so I'm curious.

/v/ makes a chart: Recommending western games the Nips should play

Calling all anons! Let's make a chart together of your good western games the japanese audience should play! >why? There's an increasing effort to get the Japanese to play Western developed games. And, rather than let companies decide which games should introduce those players to media, we can develop a chart consisting of the "better" games that the West has released over the past 20-30 years, with five of the "best" or "most recommended" titles released every year. >ok I'm in, what are the rules? - The first version of release counts as the game's original release year, unless you're referring to a specific version of the game. - It is a good idea to prioritize games which either already have a Japanese translation or received a Japanese fan translation. - Each year must have 5 games total. - For variety's sake, try to keep it to one title per platform every year. - Only add games that you have personally played to this list. - The years will span from 1992-2021 Discuss with other anons what games you think should/should not be contenders as the games of the year!

Ghostwire Tokyo

Hey anon, did you rum the new Bethesda release that was previously Ikumi Nakamura's game? It's basically gone from first person Ghost-Doot with hand seals into Metroid Prime with handseals and spoopy Taisho-era urban legends and internet myths, from internet ghosts to toilet ghosts to the 8 foot tall Ara-Ara lady hunting for fresh shotas to snip all that in the amazing district of Shibuya, home of Nomura's wet dreams. Did I ever tell you that it even reuses the Zelda toilet paper joke? The game's an absolute meme, it's basically a first person Evil Within 1 sans the traps but with exploration and some light RPG elements due to the open world faggotry. It's the most meh game out of the three big ones that are coming out, between Kirby and Jack's Bizarre Adventure. It could have been far, far better if the RPG elements made your shamanic powers actually stronger and better, giving you faster run speeds, better charging, higher jumps and so on but right now it's very stiffled. The story is basically Devil Summoner except you save your sister instead of your girlfriend, not-Kyoji Kuzunoha inhabits your body instead of the other way round but you still engage in those assholish back and forths, a bullshit cult aims to fuck Tokyo as usual and you stop them. It's barely worth a pirate but I expect people will do it anyway because the PC release of this game will probably include all the executables as well with its demo, resulting in another DooT Eternal situation where more 70% of the people got it for free in the first few weeks or something. BTW Ikumi has created a new studio focusing exclusively on horror games, wonder how she'll fare against the Silent Hill guy and his Bokeh studio with Slithead.

If you had to pick an ''almost'' good game to get a remake, what would you choose /v/?

The only games that should be remade are ones that were almost good, as opposed to classics. Classics games wouldn't be classics if they weren't already good. They don't have to be perfect, but they don't have glaring flaws that prevent you from engaging with the game. Sometimes though, there are games that are almost good, but get fucked by certain aspects. Maybe it's a shitty story, maybe it's just one aspect of combat that fucks over the rest. A good example is Fate/EXTRA for the PSP, which has a dreadfully boring rock-paper-scissors combat system, but an interesting aspect about "investigating the enemy servant" before you fight to gain an advantage. The music was good, the graphics were okay(for the PSP), and the story was good as well. Just had one shitty combat system. Perfect example of a game that could use a remake. If you had to pick an almost good game to get a remake, what would you choose /v/?

Liminality in Video Games

In a nutshell; Empty human architecture or fields common to cause a feeling of unease. See mp4 related to get a better grasp. As of late, I've been obsessed over this recently defined concept of liminal spaces. It's nothing new and you've probably already experienced it whether in real life or a videogame. Just think back whenever you stood on an open space or even a hallway all by yourself, in total silence or maybe playing gmod alone for the first time. It's common in horror games but is usually accompanied with frequent encounters with monsters which kills the concept I'm referring to. Same with games like Stalker, Metroid and the Fallout and TES series. Isolation is really comfy, yet unsettling at the same time and is something that works best on vidya. Here's a few games that have scratched that itch for me: >Garry's Mod As I said before, playing gmod by yourself evokes that feeling. There's even a lot of fan maps that revolve around this concept. >INFRA Source game where you go around all by yourself fixing machinery. More comfy than eerie. >LSD: Dream Simulator. The jumpy music kind of ruins it for me, though you can just mute the game and play some ambience music and it works the best that way. Pretty fun to explore. >Portal Pretty good though not as eerie, Any games or mods like this that you can think of? I'm thinking of playing Stanley Parable and ICO next. There's superliminal but that seems gay. Any screenshots of your own that you can share? While stalker isn't desolate enough, is good material for liminal screenshots.

2D games popularity

Are there any 2D games (indie/AA/AAA) that achieved success recently (last 5 or 10 years)? Are there any games (2D or 3D) with top view camera (bird's view) that achieved success recently? Are there any games (preferably 2D) with isometric camera that achieved success recently? Post screens from the games. You can find screens on Moby Games. Are 2D/top/isometric/side games no longer produced? Or are they produced but nobody buys them? Why did everything move to soulless 3D triangles, bilinear filtering (blur) and grey colors?

open world

NFS MW uses its open world most effectively in cop pursuits where you can run away to any direction nd get ambushed from any direction. It also realizes that same isn't beneficial in races so it locked down raves to a specific route. GTA also uses cop chases the same way and foot pursuits with guns. In farcry (since 3) open world is best used in liberating outpost, where player is free to use whichever direction of approach they want. Most farcry missions are locked down to a linear path with pre-designed points of best approach the player is expected to take. Morrowind and several other rpgs allows non-linear progression of missions which can be completed in any order with each one effecting others. Completing quests in any order is encouraged. What are other cool things to do with open world games? Which games have open world used like a desert with "oases" of content littered around?

Have you ever taken that Quantic Foundry test to see what your gamer type is? It has some interesting results that aren't exactly wrong but they miss some finer points. For example, they cover primary first-run motivations, but they don't seem to consider power-playing and game mastery on repeated play-throughs. On first runs I will do a solo story-focused run without worrying about getting too OP, but on subsequent playthroughs I will do absolutely everything to break a game in as many ways as possible. The test: Archive of their archetypes:

Somehow this was a game series I missed out on playing back in the day. It has a lot of points in its favor? >Great designs >Classic "combat platformer" ala Golden Axe but with a waifu >Serious Rayearth anime vibes I'm playing Super Valis IV (SNES collection freebie) which I know was heavily modified compared to the original game, but I'm having a pretty great time with it.
