I hope the game is better than that terribly bland character art.

There are also RTS, MOBA, MMOs with PvP, Coop Hack'n'Slash games if you hate PvP that much (Diablo, Torchlight et. al.), Fighting games, Collectible Card Games (Hearthstone looks kinda nice, wish I had a beta key, I hear good things about Scrolls though it supposedly takes forever to play and grow your deck). Just look around for something that suits you. FPS is hardly the only thing out there.

I feel that way about most jRPGs.

The solution is to just leave that stuff behind and play multiplayer games. There is a reason most of the money in the current generation is made with online mulitplayer. Those games are just longer entertaining and also always exciting. It doesn't matter if it's your 5th or your 300th game, you never know what will happen next. (Unless it's a very crappy game).

I don't give a damn about the 3D, so I wouldn't mind a cheaper version with no 3D, but that design is just atrocious.

I don't play RPGs for the plot. Not anymore, at least.

I was into the plots until they started to stink. Now, it's certainly possible that they've _always_ stunk and I've just seen so many of them that I'm noticing it more now, but it seems like we used to get more creative plot setups and it's now more that they're either needlessly convoluted or hopelessly driven by numerous anime tropes. I just don't appreciate that as much as I used to, so for me at least, plots are now an excuse to see how new gameplay ideas are executed and how much staying power they have.

Quoted for truth.

Always bet on Nintendo to be so ridiculous it's unbelivable.

FFXIII is the game for you, I guarantee you that you won't get lost.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Games that are not emulated properly (or at all)

That's one aspect that interests me: how accurate do you have to be?

The newer the system is, the less accuracy is needed generally. It's because the development is also getting more and more high-level and API centered as opposed to hand-written ASM tweaks for every little routine. If you get the most commonly used APIs working, you'll get 95% of the games working perfectly fine. This applies to the PS2 and onwards. I think programming wise a 360 emulator wouldn't be too terrible to do, there is just not nearly the CPU power available since the clock frequency gap between PCs and consoles shrinked to pretty much zero.

Gaming Discussion / Re: X Rebirth
« on: August 19, 2013, 05:21:25 pm »
I'd jump right into X3: Terran Conflict even. It's the most polished and gameplay-wise fleshed out. Though I think waiting another 3 months and starting with Rebirth won't be a bad idea either. After X3:TC the universe is pretty much torn upside down, so many things will work very differently (most importantly FTL travel) and the old storylines will probably become merely background fluff. The game has a very rich lore, but the plots in the games themselves were mostly basic and terribly presented. X2 had cutscenes that you couldn't watch without cringing, and X3 then just gave up and mostly resorted to audio samples and even text boxes over barely animated portraits with randomly moving mouths. If you get the X Superbox, it has some books and other bonus content that has timelines and a synopsis of the storylines of past X games and the universe on the whole. It's very worth reading. And it probably floats around the net so you don't have to get the superbox, it's just two or three pdf files after all :p

This probably makes the games sound really terrible, but the lore is rich enough that there are really awesome sense of wonder moments still. Arriving on Earth for the first time or encountering a capital ship of the terraformers will send shivers down your spine. (The humans in the X universe are distant decendants of colonists from Earth, after the gateway to the Sol system had been destroyed many years before and all contact was lost. It had only been re-established at the end of X3)

I'm still following the project on /m/, keep up the work. I really wouldn't worry too much about battle dialogue, IMO it's by far the most expendable text in a SRW game. Is the game voiced? If so it's even less of a concern, since from my experience, most battle text in SRW games is yelling. Menu and story translation are the important parts to get through the game.

Dawn of War II + various add-ons:

In total 361 hours (according to Steam).

I'll check my /played next time I'm in Star Trek Online, though I'll probably regret it.

Megaman - All the Bravest

100k seems very lowball, even if it looks like that's only for 3D work. (I only skimmed the page).

Not everything that is legal is morally right. ::)

I'm trying to think of what people used to do with their free time waiting in line/on buses/coffee breaks before smartphones and their bullshit games came along, but I'm drawing a blank.

Magazines and news-papers.

Personally I do not see anything remotely wrong with this*.

Red Dead Redemption
Max Payne 3

It's not something easy to remember specifically, the average is pretty damn solid these days. I remember Lunar to be pretty stilted and meh.

Not to mention the game might be "free", but it's brimming with stolen copyrighted content.

Gaming Discussion / X Rebirth
« on: August 08, 2013, 01:39:35 pm »
I've waited a long time for high-res gameplay footage, and Egosoft finally delivered:


And they also have a release date too, 15th November. I can't wait.

In case you are clueless what this is about, X Rebirth is a space simulation and the 4th game in the long running X series. This one took 7 years to make and it looks like the wait was worth it. Their claims sound unrealistic? Well X3 already had most of that, I played it, it's real. This one will just be bigger and more epic. (And hopefully it'll finally have a good UI, the only real issue the series had).

It irks me that Star Citizen gets all the spotlight, just because they leech off long past glory and keep stirring the hype machinery.
