Not sure about the Vita, but the PS4 is.

One has to keep in mind though that the English translation will be pretty Engrishy. Maybe they'll release all SRW games after OG Moon Dwellers in this fashion now.

I'm going to be totally honest and say that the concept of gamer culture kind of makes me uncomfortable--kind of in the same way that sports culture makes me uncomfortable.

It's not the people that participate in the activity only as a hobby that bother me though, it's the people I've known who maybe don't have as much of a real-life connection to go back to, you know what I mean?  The really hard-core sports folks kind of make me feel the same way--they seem to latch their whole identity around following some games, but when I talk to them and that's all they really have going on in their lives, it all just makes me feel a bit sad.

I somewhat agree with you, but here is a counter question. As someone who probably has to work from morning to evening (nowadays sometimes more), for how many hobbies do you even have time? There are more and more people in this age who between work and maybe raising their kids really don't have time to engage in any hobbies anymore. Even having just one hobby seems like a luxury to me.
So while it would be awesome to game, do two different sports, go traveling, play an instrument, romhack and read high literature and go to the theater, who the hell has time for all of that? Realistically, it's pick one or maybe two if you are lucky.

Of course it's a different story if we are talking teenagers who have half the day any day and do nothing but game. But hey, they are teenagers, they do pointless stuff by default. I nowadays wonder what the hell I did with all my time back in the day.

Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault (Vita)
Battlefield Gothic Armada (PC)

No, still haven't played Until Dawn. Ended up playing Stellaris instead (see Victoly thread).

My first game of Stellaris already ended with a galaxy conquest. I'm pretty shocked, especially since I learned the game as I played and there was stuff that would have sped up my early development ten fold that I only realized 20 hours into the game. But hey, I played all the other Paradox games and other 4X as well, so I can't really call myself a beginner. Still, I have to wonder if the game is that easy or if I got lucky somehow.

To give a short review, it's a solid game, and I'm sure it'll become a great one after 2 or 3 expansions. This is Paradox, the base game is always just the foundation. If you are interested in Paradox games, it's worth a play already. But I'll wait for more playthroughs until there have been expansions. The game still has issues: UI, missing comfort features, abusable bugs and most importantly missing victory conditions - just picking your own like in EU doesn't work here nearly as well since the starting conditions are much more fixed. It's not a completely different game if you start with France or Japan like EU. I don't feel like I'd get a completely different perspective by switching to another species for a second playthrough.

I haven't touched X-Com2 again since I stopped playing it, so I have no idea if they fixed the technical issues or not, sorry.

I haven't popped in Until Dawn yet, but I plan to this week (vacation yay). I'll get back to you then.

@BlackDog: The only game I've been actively playing is Bloodbourne in all honesty. I have Destiny and Uncharted Collection as well, but I didn't play either much. If you skipped the PS3 gen there are lot's of good ports like Last of Us as Bahamut Zero suggested. To be 100% honest, I've been pretty disappointed with the PS4 so far. But an English SRW will make it all good ;D

Beat Dark Souls 3. It was high quality as usual, but it also seems pretty clear that there is nothing new to add to the formular. I'm kinda glad the series is finished now.

Pre-Orders: Overwatch (PC), Super Robot Wars OG: The Moon Dwellers (PS4).
Also bought Until Dawn (PS4).

Gaming Discussion / Re: What's your favourite board game?

I have to wonder if people who like Monopoly ever played anything else... (that isn't also from 1920 or something). Monopoly vs any other game you can pick off the shelves now is like playing an Atari 2600 game vs a modern game. Game design has evolved a ton since then and aside from historic values there is just no reason to go back to it. Someone else mentioned Risk which is similiarily an abysmal game since it's 100% dice luck and can take forever until someone finally has a terrible dice streak.

I'm more for TCG/LCG and tabletops than board games.

So my picks will be the Lord of the Rings LCG and Infinity: The Game.

Risen 2? Though I'd heistate to call it good. But during the first 30 minutes, I nearly died of laughter at how bad it was.

zonk continues to proclaim random hunches based on hearsay and more than sketchy anectdotal evidence and baseless assumptions as facts.  ::) Just stop talking man.

No one mentioned one of the best Metroidvanias on PC: Valdis Story: Abyssal City.
It's available on Steam.

zonk, people would be much more sympathetic to your ideas if you'd stop making completely unsubstantiated claims with no basis in reality. You simply don't know what you are talking about most of the time. Which would be fine if you'd accept that and asked instead of proclaiming your made up versions of reality simply as fact. In this thread and the other once there are dozens of things you said that are quite simply hogwash. You do not know how to use debugging tools properly. What you want are workarounds for your gaps in understanding and experience on how to debug. What's needed against that isn't different tools, it's better documentation and tutorials.

And going ad hominem ("global warming deniers") isn't going to help your case either.

Konami doesn't want to make any more games for their franchises, but they still love milking money out of them.

(after a Rock Band overdose on PS3 - btw I need a replacement, any sug's?)

Trash the plastic garbage, get a real guitar and play Rocksmith. You can find used guitars for the price of a new game, so it's not overly expensive an option either.

It's too bad you need a new card right now, since it's currently a really shitty time to buy a new GPU. The current architectures are 2-3 years old and a new one by both major players is expected for summer/autumn.

You guys all realize IST was looking for 3D games to test the new features of ePSXe, right?

But top 100 lists... always struck me as a silly idea in general.  I mean, you're just comparing games of totally different genres, which appeal to totally different people.  Can you really say that 'The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time is better than Super Mario Galaxy and Call of Duty 4 because this and that reason'?

Much better to list the top games of a certain genre or maybe theme.  Top 100 platformers might be a bit more meaningful than top 100 games, and the same goes for top 100 FPS games, top 100 fighting games, top 100 shoot em ups, etc.

Exactly. Mixed genre lists essentially rate genres against each other. That doesn't make any sense and is just completely arbitrary.
