While arguing with normalfags I realized that right now there are faggots on 8channel and 4channel/v/ that will defend ME2's;

Disk Locked Content
Cut Content in the name of DLC
Draconian DRM
Shitloads of bugs
Simplification of RPG mechanics for third rate TPS mechanics done better in 2005's Kill Switch
Simplification of Dialogue trees

I seriously hope this is not the case on endchan /v/ as well.

OP is either an EA shill or is legitimately surprised that the nuthouses are filled with retards. Not sure which is worse.

And Jade Empire is merely the top of the shit sundae that is BioWare's ongoing commitment to producing railroading set pieces rather than proper RPGs like what they used to (Its saving graces being that at least here they tried to do something interesting with the setting and combat.

Everything since BGII has been console trash for plebs because "golly 3D sure is harder than isometric"; and there's been doubly no reason to touch anything of theirs since their acquisition by The Great Satan (Other than Actiblizzion).

No I sincerely doubt that. But what is impressive, is how no one has correctly noticed that ME2 is basically a massive series reboot from top to bottom.

Pick a favorite game, find a negative review you can't disagree with Anonymous 08/08/2016 (Mon) 04:16:58 [Preview] No. 9709 [Reply]
I have a game for you /v/, think about one of your favorite games in a specific genre. Now try to find a negative review for it, but the catch is that it's a negative review you're having a hard time disagreeing with.

I picked Empire Earth 2, it's my favorite 4x RTS out there and it's even superior to Rise of Nations, however this review while negative, really hit the nail with problems I encountered with the game and documentation.

This review is from Amazon, he gave it a 3/5 stars

>Stainless Steel Studios has good timing with games. The first *Empire Earth* crossed my laptop as I was settling into my mobilization for Operation Nobel Eagle. I'd come home from long patrols and unwind with a heaping of world domination. I seemed to have an easier time of it than our current Administration.

>Now Mad Doc takes over and returns the series as I am mobilizing against the Real Time Strategy genre. I'm sick of retread RTS games whose publishers promise much, but deliver something too safe. With American culture currently awash in remakes and rehashes, it seems nobody can produce anything fresh or innovative anymore.

>*Empire Earth II* doesn't change my perception. But it's as solid an RTS as anybody has managed: being streamlined enough for anybody to get the hang of it, but with enough useful details and tweaks to separate the men from the boys. It also looks and sounds good.

>Graphics definitely makes demands of my Radeon 9800 AiW and my 1G of Kingston ECC memory: aside from the great-looking explosions, shrapnel, and dust clouds, EEII suffers from horrendous slow down whenever more than a few units or civilizations exist on the screen. Shutting off the good-looking weather and seasonal effects didn't seem to matter. Audio booms deep, loud, and clear over my home theater system. *EEII* one-ups *Rise of Nations* in audio and video.

>*Empire Earth II* plays more like *Rise of Nations* than its own predecessors. However, marketers tried to make *RoN* seem like a real-time *Civilization*, when it was really just another *Starcraft* knock-off. *EEII* at least announces up front, "Hey, I'm an RTS".

>So *EEII* falls into the Imperial RTS subgenre with Blizzard mechanics. Players select with the left-click and execute unit orders with the right-click, except for special powers and building orders, which are executed and canceled in exactly the opposite way. Players build town halls/ command centers to generate labor units who mine and build everything else.

In short, a Metacritic like website with better statistics. I have first posted this idea quite some time ago on half-chan, didn't get any post. Then on 8chan a short time after the exodus, I could get a few posts that showed interest, but what I had in mind was too complicated and was left to wonder how I could simplify it, until I realized I had the answer before my eyes and started coding.
I guess I should have posted about how it would work before coding but here I am.

>Why make it that way?
I aim to adress the problems with having a single digit describing games:
- Each user doesn't necessarily have the same scale range.
e.g.: x<75 means trash, 75<x<90 is good and x>90 is great?
Or is it x<50 a bad game 50<x<75 a good game and x>75 good enough?
-> Instead of a numerical value, user will describe their view as "dislike", "dislike with pros", "like with cons", "like". This scale has an interal value of 1, 2, 3, 4 respectively. I don't know if another type of appreciation scale is needed but that should do for now.

- How can someone describe an average game that has several flaw yet is an enjoyable game and a great game but with critical flaw that limits its potential? 75% each?
-> Users will select attributes describing aspects of the game and their appreciation of it, rather than selecting a single value for the whole thing. This should give a more accurate description of the game content

- Interested parties pulling the average toward a specific direction
-> Since different groups will be displayed, you can check what those groups have affinity with and decide for yourself if they just have different taste, paid to make these reviews, or have some axe to grind.

A lot of people generally suggest V as a starting point I'd guess. It's pretty popular even outside of bigger fans of the series. It's pretty comfy and it tells pretty much the life story of the MC.

1-3 are better though and honestly the first Dragon Quest is a must if you're into JRPGS. Three's something so simple and crisp about the first three though.

Someone once recommended me V a while back (on 8/vr/, IIRC), and I stuck with it for a little while, but eventually gave up on it. The progression was good, and the grinding not too annoying - functionally, it was fine. But JRPGs feel too damn procedural to me these days.

I could tell that I'd have to off X dudes in order to be let through to the next area; where I'd be rewarded with the task of of offing X x2 dudes before I could progress again. The turns-based combat just puts me to sleep.

What pisses me off the most is how it seems to get the most basic clickRPG mechanics wrong, especially with the skills. The graphics also feel pretty dated, and playing it after having played Grim Dawn makes everything feel kinda off considering Grim Dawn improved on most of Titan Quest's faults.

Still, I would say it's a decent game, just feels dated overall.

Just tried to play Castle Story, I must say it's a cool game. It's honestly everything I would expect from a casualized version of a 3d Dwarf Fortress, but Jesus Christ is it poorly optimized right now. Granted my machine is old now (pic related) and I'm using a monitor that's 1600*900, but surely this thing should be able to run it at the highest settings, right?

Hell just exiting the sandbox map I was dicking around in for a while caused the game to crash on me by the way. Good thing I didn't actually buy it, paying to be a video game guinea pig stopped sounding cool after minecraft to be honest.

I actually kickstarted this, but didn't play much outside of the first beta.

Can you actually play it now? They do work on it still, fairly regular updates over the last several years.

It's playable on medium maps with 30-60fps, once you reach 100 enemies and 30~ friendlies it starts chugging on my rig. Big maps however if you have an AMD and it's like mine, not top spec, expect a crash every 5 minutes, the FPS oddly enough is stable, but it crashes, every fucking time. Every time I check the error logs I notice that it's caused by memory leaks in Unity engine 5. Every damn time I check on why it's because it's not using all of my RAM even though I have 8gigs worth of it.

Needless to say it's just as I said in the OP, it needs severe optimization.


Resource collecting
Barrels filled with crystals, or filling the big ass crystals with crystals speed up the Brickton creation process. There's now orange dust, and iron, which can be used to create explosives, and is now needed for doors and catapults. I don't know if this was in the old versions you played or not, but in the new conquest mode the more crystals you capture, the faster you can produce bricktons.

Troop and unit customization
There is none, probably never will be, and that's okay with me.

Micromanagement and path finding
New movement settings allow you to tell your warriors to attack anything they encounter along the way, after they're done attacking they proceed to the way point. That said setting up defensive positions within a broad area without archers is still a pain. You still can't customize patrol routes which means your men can end up being sneak attacked. Path finding for civillian units is for the most part significantly much better however, every once in a while bricktons choose longer routes, but for the most part it's efficient. The bricktons only get stuck when building complicated structures or when a platform has heavy traffic.

This pretty much, but though I don't think every scenario of advertising is terrible. On cripplechan, some anons and amateur game devs are honestly promoting their own games. I'd like to add that streaming is focused on the streamer's personality and that e-celebrity threads, to whatever level of actual popularity, haven't been constructive to imageboards generally.

Pic very much related.

I feel you on the confected outrage it generated - getting mad because tits is equally as sad as giving the game a pass because tits.

But there's something I vehemently dislike about the game: it was encapsulated by your response, and it's present across the entire industry. That something is the Skinner box effect that has been added to virtually every single game since every single developer found they can exponentially increase the life of their title by bolting on simplistic progression trees, or "old-skool RPG elements as they're occasionally, nauseatingly, referred to.

Nobody's content to make a straight up action game that will take 30 minutes to complete anymore - even when they're designing in a genre like scrolling beat-'em-ups that fucking well should.


Because by artificially extending the sense of progress within the game, you can guarantee that the consumer is not going to get tired of your product. The more cynical publishers use this to tide customers along til the next DLC fix and the cycle will start again.

Fundamentally, gentlemen, our favorite past-time has simply been flooded with time inflation.

Oh I agree with you. There's no goddamn reason why a game like Dragon's Crown should have shit like level-based character progression other than to pad out the time. Variety between same characters types could have been done equipment-wise combined maybe with some base stat randomization.

Perhaps in a better society we shall start rewarding games that deliver a satisfying experience in the least time possible. But that's assuming we will have or want something better to do with our time.

It's an absolutely marvelous little game. Excellent casual couch co-op or HC single player challenge. Near perfect mechanics, though massive spell ownage clutters the screen.Online component works and can be fun. Good variety characters for only semi-different play styles.

You get to cook and eat your enemies. In Top-tier Vanillaware food fetish minigame you can make a radish onion hotpot of the last bosses meat, for the whole party to eat. Art is some of Vanillawares best, only topped by MDB.

You can play the Dwarf. Not just any dwarf, The Dwarf. Just try it.

Some boring grinding in the late game, but it's part of the "how long can you travel"-mechanic. All gear is unfortunately abysmally boring. Great game.

its good if you like the idea of a diablo clone where you can control multiple people simultaneously. its somewhere in between diablo and those instances in warcraft games, but unique from either in that you can prioritize how each individual unit attacks, and formations are actually useful.

the only bad thing about it is that the inventory screen is made of fixed pixels, and with increasing screen resolution, its getting harder and harder to see, but its not bad at 1080p.

>or a combination
My long time fantasy is a fighter that's slow as shit because it's actually a worms clone about tiny parasites that micromanage the various limbs of the character. Some ballistics could be involved but with the addition of shooting 'the ground' to give orders and buffs, and most of the focus would be on efficiency management and fighter meta strategy in slo-mo for the sake of being babby friendly. Turn-based, but with a mechanic of using items to extend your action limit on the most opportune turn when you need to get shit done the most urgently. After a win there would be a real-time playback fight of maybe thirty seconds after an hour of play.

Spin-off series would just be that same fighter game but actually a proper fighter.

Ok, so, just make believable possession simulation. Like there is an actual demon trying to get a hold of your body. It whispers bad shit during dialogs, sometimes takes control and makes the player do or say bad things.
And as the story progresses, the demon gains more control, and player gets to know who the demon is. So a love story maybe.
