Space Station 13 Anonymous 07/25/2017 (Tue) 23:54:16 [Preview] No. 10958 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I have:
A codebase (/tg/station)
A map that's not been used to death (Omegastation)
A somewhat crappy home box to host from.

I don't have:
Stellar internet connection (ping may be an issue, Works For Me though)
Faggot admins or coders (or any admins or coders at all)
Any special gimmicks that set this server apart from most others, unless you count not having the usual faggot crew on the admin team as a gimmick.
Players to do spess things on a spess station with.

The Omegastation map is somewhat small and only has two Heads of Staff by default, the Captain and the HoP. The HoP and/or Captain can give department permissions of the missing Heads of Staff to crew members as needed.
There aren't facilities for Virology or Genetics on this map at round start. Meaning you'll have to make your own if you want to utilize them.
There isn't a singulo, TEG, tesla or solars, the station is powered by Supermatter Engine only right now. Once I figure out mapping I plan on offering alternatives as I know some people prefer singulo over supermatter and whatnot.

As I said earlier, this is a home box I'm hosting from so the ping may suck ass for anyone trying to connect. I'm just trying to offer some alternative to the big stations on the Hub and places like /vg/station, /tg/station and even the current station on 8/v/ which all seem to attract some serious shitters.

Has anyone played Nier Automatic? I like asses but for some reason she seems so generic with the sword and gothic maid outfit that I'm not interested..

Unfortunately my computer is not that good, and shit translation but I could probably mostly get over that.

I am a little curious as to what is bad about generic looks? I mean, that has nothing to do with the quality of the story or the gameplay. It seems like a stupid thing to complain about. Would changing the weapon and outfit she uses (but nothing else) somehow make the game or story better?

IF you want to play a game to masturbate to, Nier Automata is not the game for you. If you want fast paced melee combat, with some projectile combat thrown in this is your game. Don't expect a DEEP RPG, but more of an ARPG Action Adventure hybrid.

The story is pretty good, but granted I've played Drakengard 1, Drakengard 3, read the Grimoire Nier and played Nier 1, so I know what's going on. Not just that but I know about all the intentional or unintentional plotholes as well. If you've heard about this game's story and want to play it for the story I'd reluctantly recommend it.

There will be quite a few plot points, and very sad moments you just won't understand however, which is where the reluctance stems from. The game doesn't just have callbacks, it builds upon the background lore and characters from the previous games. Of course it's not done in your face, but some of the expansion to the lore will very likely leave you lost or even bewildered.


In case you're thinking about the previous entries Anonymous 07/21/2017 (Fri) 16:20:20 [Preview] No. 10951 del
>>10950
So then, if you want to get in this game for the story, and are committed enough to play through all 3 previous entries, would I recommend you the 3 previous entries? Not really, the previous 3 entries are all flawed in one way or another. However Drakengard and Drakengard 3 are in my opinion the least flawed GAMEPLAY wise.

Drakengard and Drakengard 3 are odd ones, it's as if someone took Panzer Dragoon series and combined it with Dynasty Warriors while attaching RPG mechanics to it. For the most part it works, but it can get very monotonous specially if you happen to be overleveled. Thankfully the bossfights and boss events inject substance to the monotony.

Nier is the most varied one gameplay wise. However it has two great flaws, the AI and the weapon's balancing. So basically the AI is fucking dumb, it can easily get stuck or be kited into corners of the world map. Their move set lacks variety and they rarely dodge any of your hits. Now on to the weapons, boy oh boy.

So the problem with the weapons' balancing is the magic Words system and the fact that upgrades are too easy to obtain. Some weapons are a little harder to obtain, but you really don't have to go out of your way to get them either. So why are weapons so easy to upgrade? You only need cash to upgrade weapons. So why is it a problem? It's a problem because the game has enemies drop loot and trash you can sell almost constantly. There is plot reasons for this, which will give you some massive feels, but for the most part, gameplay wise it dumbs down the game severely.

During boss fights get ready for some crazy ass bullet hell style shenanigans, but once you figure out the exploit to them, I suggest for you not to use it. Because frankly it takes out A LOT from the experience. Or you can be a cheap faggot and completely break the one thing the game does competently.

Story wise Nier and Drakengard are really solid, but Drakengard 3 just feels like a crappy anime to be honest. It does add to the lore, but the acting in both releases, the music, and aesthetics are just blegh. Nier Automata also feels anime-esque, but it's balanced out with the mecha designs and the story being much more focused like Nier and Drakengard were.

Forgot to mention, that Drakengard, Nier, and Drakengard all have multiple endings to them. Automata is no different either, however Automata is filled with shitloads of abrupt, or even in some cases joke endings.

Then why the hell are you butthurt about all the religious theme play they're doing? Without even playing this latest entry might I add? It's absolutely asinine and schizophrenic.

>on purpose

Because they're having fun with the themes while lampooning them. IF you're a christfag I don't recommend you playing the series Shin Megami Tensei then, you'll want to get an exorcism. Moreover if you're a christfag and are mad that people don't take your kike on a stick as seriously as you do I recommend you fuck off to /horror/ and /pol/.

I don't believe in any religions, partly because the visual novel was kind of anti-religion and it affected me. I just am amazed that when a game set in an alternate universe was localized this summer they didn't fear Christian backlash enough to censor the taboo number like they would have 20 years ago.

It makes me excited that the Japs might be able to get away with more subversive content and accelerate the slide towards irreligion in the West. In a couple of patches Fate GO will even have an Age of Gods expansion where you fight biblical champions like David, Saul and Solomon.

This could be a sign that we've slid from the dark ages when Christians fought subveesive themes in video games. Square (Final Fantasy X) used to censor anti-theist themes all the time because they didn't want to upset Christians, but Japanese culture has raised loyal fans overseas who have grown up exposed to outsider POVs, so maybe they could get away with anti-religion themes today with much less overall backlash.

Fine, but don't call it Satanic, for pete's sake buddy. Playing with religious themes doesn't automatically mean you attend the Church of Satan.

Is Oceanhorn a good Zelda Clone? Is it linear, middle of the road like Minish Cap or more like the original Zelda?

Bought it on sale super cheap, to summarize my experience, it's super easy but still enjoyable to a certain degree.

So right off the bat something that stood out for me is that there's a log for all pieces of dialogue plus text in the game. You have to pay attention to this log and collecting text from the environment plus populace to get hints on where to go. This is pretty cool for what was originally a mobile game and it's also vague enough so it doesn't mislead you, or spoonfeed you information. The way shortcuts are handled is just awesome, it's something you have to earn. Granted the puzzles to earn them are pitiful in difficulty, but at least there was an attempt.

The core puzzles in the game for the most part are pretty easy, however the Ice Palace is really a doozy. If you're not careful you can end up doing it out of order. However just because it's out of order doesn't mean it's impossible, which really surprised me. There's also a tight-rope esque segment in this dungeon which while not hard with Keyboard+Mouse or a Console controller might be a handful or impossible for some who are stuck on mobile devices.

The combat is OBVIOUSLY very reminiscent of the the 2d zeldas with most of the inspiration coming more from Minish Cap and Link to the Past. Due to the game being in a very 3/4s 3d plane rather than 2d, or bird's eye tilt 3d like the sequel to LttP for the 3ds, the aerial enemies are never a threat even when you're preoccupied with enemies on the ground.In general facing enemies isn't really that challenging or hard, the only boss fight that was memorable to me was the Ice King and the final boss fights. But even those are a cake walk.

The world traveling aspect is fucking weak, yes the game was originally a cellphone title, but I wish they would have added a better overworld or one with more features for the PC version. Like I'm not expecting a complete rehaul of it or anything, but some random events Red Dead Redemption style would have been nice. For example, while you're traveling you have the chance to rescue a vessel being hijacked by pirates. Or you have the chance to fight a gang of pirates or big ass monsters. Honestly it's been ages since I've played Windwaker so I don't remember if this was a major issue there too, all I remember is fishing at sea for mission items, treasure or hidden items.

The story, I actually like more than your average Zleda games, but that's not really a great feat. The romance part of the story was just completely out of the left field and just really doesn't add anything to the game. Really wanted to be able to interact somehow with Neeti but nah, she even stops following you around the island after a couple of quests. Loved the captain Ahab style obsession your father has with Oceanhorn and it's great seeing him struggle between it and his son.

It really needed more developing, but it's a mobile game, and the focus was clearly gameplay.

Over all, 6/10, really average game with some serious drawbacks due to the fact it was originally a mobile device game.
