Beat War for the Overworld. A modern day clone of Dungeon Keeper. Considering how old that one is I welcomed a remake with open arms. And I enjoyed my time with it. It's been waaay too long since I played the original so I can't say what was different. Probably worth a try wether you played the original way back like I did or if you didn't and you just want to know what it was like without badly aged 90s 3D graphics. The UI is pretty bad, but that's the only major flaw I can think of.

Also I played a campaign of Europa Universalis 4 with the latest DLCs (two or three more than from when I did my last). Though this one technically doesn't deserve to be in the Victoly thread, but we don't have a YOU SUCK thread so... Decided to go after an achievement from the very hard category and ofc I wasn't prepared for it, especially not for a first game with unknown new mechanics. Tried to own all porcellain producing provinces as Saxony. Hint: they are all in east asia. Took me 350 something years to get out of central europe and then it was just too late with the remaining time to have a shot at making it. That Ming was still unified wouldn't have helped either. I'll just break it down to two words: HRE politics :-\

I've beaten the latest Ace Attorney game on the 3DS. It's always hard for me to rank these since I'm playing them only once and the series has been going for many years now so it's been forever since I played the first ones. But except for the 4th case (which was bafflingly obvious filler) I'd say this was one of the best AA games to date.

League of Legends. In theory it's the greatest game in the world. In practice it's Human Cesspool: The Game.

We only played Hyper Dimension back in the day simply because it looked SO much better than the other ones.

I recently played a bit of Xenoverse, it's actually quite enjoyable.

Two more games beaten recently.

Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest
Mechanics-wise probably the best FE yet. The series is much better in general since perma-death can be turned off. Optional higher difficulties are really demanding too. The big downside here is the ridiculous DLC. Not only is it balance distorting (there is DLC openly advertised as allowing you to grind unlimited XP and money) but the true story ending is also locked behind DLC. And that is after the game was split into two paths, Pokemon style (though one by itself is as lengthy as a full game). Not that you need to give a shit about the story because this is Fire Emblem. "Chosen one has to gather chosen weapon, really bad demon something thing... blablabla".  ::) Hence why I won't waste any time on that DLC campaign.

Deus Ex Mankind Divided.
Great game. I managed a pacifist playthrough without killing anyone. The only negative I could say is a technical one, the loading time when switching between major areas is very annoyingly wrong. At least it doesn't happen every few minutes, it's relatively rare. Anything else about the game is very good. Like the last game but a little bit more refined. And no externally developed fail boss battles this time.

it seems that the hate of the game is cooling down.

People just moved on with their lives and ignored this.

If what people around these parts who still play NES games said about "modern" games was true, 'gaming' would have been dead since the PS2 era already. And now PS2 games are suddenly considered to be among the classics from the good old times by many of those same people... ::)

@Topic: The Japanese gaming industry completely missed the train. There was a time when practically all the best games came from Japan and western developers made clunky RPGs and strategy games or FPS games. Instead of innovating again they make bad imitations of misunderstood western designs. Resident Evil 6 anyone? And now western games are lightyears ahead and they have no chance in hell to catch up. Is Devil May Cry really Capcom's newest franchise? Can't think of a newer one. But hey, they made like 30 more Megaman games until then. And for some ungodly reason people are still sad there aren't more... But oh right, "modern games" are bad because they are all sequels :laugh: It also doesn't help that the domestic Japanese market seems to be all about mobile gaming. They reduce the budgets on console titles which in turns makes them look even worse. Outside of rare treats like Souls you can say goodbye to Japanese games. But don't worry, they'll keep making games even on tiny budgets. If you are itching for some JRPGs you can always rub some loli breats in Criminal Girls or laugh about boob jokes in Hyperdimension Neptunia 15.2 Zombies vs Boobs or complain on the internet that they removed a breast rubbing minigame for the western release of Fire Emblem. All hail Japanese games :crazy:

No one will try this since no one wants to play a multiplayer only shooter on the 3DS in the first place, Metroid or not. That it's using the Metroid franchise is just what pushes it from being ignorable to somewhat insulting.

Because the problem here is, this will sell like crap and then it'll be another nail in the franchise's coffin. "Metroid doesn't sell, look at Federation Force!". Yeah thanks a bunch...

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles X.

Xenoblade Chronicles was the best JRPG I had played in many years and restored my faith that the genre can still produce amazing games instead of just going through the motions like seemingly any other JRPG these days. Needless to say, I had high hopes for the sequel. Unfortunately, I have to say that I'm pretty disappointed.

The first game combined classic JRPG storytelling and character building mechanics with completely free exploration of a huge world that puts something like Oblivion to shame. They also added many MMO elements like real time battles with auto attacks and a bar of active abiliies with cooldowns and a shit-ton of MMO style sidequests (Farm X Materials, Kill Y Monsters, Look for hidden object in rough location Z). It was very possible though to just ignore them and enjoy the (great) main story and the fantastic exploration aspects of it.

In XCX... unfortunately they extended the MMO elements a ton. And the result is more boring filler shit, more grind and less main story. You pretty much have to dig for the main story in between all the filler shit this time and not the other way around. The main story is still good and the cast of support characters is amazing, but there is only 12 missions of it. And half of that is more or less tutorial material. There are side missions with cutscenes and some meat to them that flesh out the characters, but again, you have to dig for them. The bulk of the game that you get to see is "Go out and farm for materials or quest items". Which is a terrible shame because the world is even more amazing. It's the only open world design I know where the game actually makes use of the Z axis. The world is truly amazingly designed. Unfortunately most of the interesting stuff you find is post game difficulty. And I had quite enough after beating the main story. After 60-70 hours that is. With only 12 main missions that each take half an hour you can extrapolate how much of those 70 hours was at least filler-like content...

And thanks to that coverage those projects got several million hits instead of a few ten thousand. The works are out there and can still be easily found if one looks for them. Do you guys honestly think those projects are now worse off for it? They accomplished what they set out to do and got a huge audience for it on top. If I was the author of either project I'd be happy.

Ultimately it feels like a 3D, less combat oriented, less interesting, less diverse, slower moving, more limited, and somehow smaller version of Terraria.

But wasn't this clear from any preview about the game ever?

What would you compare people who get hyped again over a franchise that failed to meet expectations over and over to? Stephen Hawkins? Homer Simpson is not a real person. He is a cartoon character. That scene is hyperbolic commentary on repeating human behaviour. I'm sorry you don't appreciate the Simpsons.

If I HAD posted a gif instead of writing it out people would have understood it as a joke. I actually searched for a pic of the scene, couldn't find one.

"Tolerance" lmao.

You can have any opinion you want. I don't really care if you find watching paint dry to be the most amazing thing on the planet. But this is a discussion board. If you post an opinion, expect people to comment on it. If that causes you social anxiety, I'd suggest keeping your opinions to yourself. If I write that game xyz is bad for some reason that is my opinion about the game. If you consider that a personal attack, that is your problem. It's sad that people get so invested in franchises and mascots that they take it personal how much other people approve of them.

Or is the old hat that people can't understand that anything posted on a board is a personal opinion and not a statement of absolute truth, even if not every single statement is followed by "in my opinion"?

Just because it's not brown and full of blood and mud doesn't mean it's not a good game Kaio.

Wow, and this has what to do with what I wrote?

That like 18 of the last 20 Sonic games were complete garbage has nothing to do with their genre or their color palette. This is desperation right there.

Remember that scene from Simpsons where Homer touches the hot stove repeatedly because he doesn't learn from getting burned? That's people still caring about Sonic.

There is no market that wants to buy NES games en masse. It only seems that way to you because you move in the circle of 100 people that would. The thing contains probably all the games an average customer would care for. There is no need for it to be expandable or other fancy enhancements.
