Evoland

Its a cute game, but filled with this kinda shit later on. its really cringey.

The second one is MUCH better, and more subtle with its references, I'm really enjoying it.
>>
>>322670148
It's got a great, comfy atmosphere, but basically everything else sucks. Bad framerate (on ps4 at least) shitty combat, story is ok, kinda cute.

But the platforming. There is no jump button in this game. You walk towards something that the game allows you to platform, and it jumps for you. The most platforming you'll do is jump from a pegs sticking out of water, and once you're on a peg, you point your thumb stick at the next peg. That's fucking it.

Honestly, if this game had actual platforming I'd think it wasn't half bad, but that really killed it for me.

Flashback remake

is that the one that came with a bib in the collectors edition?

20+ hours beyond the first, and a real story. Its also more varried with its references, Metal gear, Layton, Castlevania, Breath of fire, etc. Its not all generic nintendo/final fantasy like the first.
>>
>>322670867
You didn't like the FF7 section? It dragged on a bit I agree

>>322671090
I am playing the wii version, the camera is still slow as fuck to turn around.

I didnt mind it, but the useage of Phoenix down, the Chobokos, and the Zephyros/Sephiroth parodies were way too much, they needed to be dialed back, the game basically became FF7 at the end, no variations or tweaks.

I don't know either.

They managed to take a contemporary take on Pandora's Box and make it boring. Articulating why a game is so fucking boring is more work then it seems, since games themselves take hours to get to that point.

It's that you spend the game firing the same shitty guns at the same shitty enemies in environments right at home in any modern FPS. The novelty of the mythological creates - when you're not just fighting generic soldier mooks - falls through fast.

And then I fell through the endgame elevator and couldn't complete the damn game anyway.
>>
>>322671669
Just finished that part myself anon, Did you get the two gems? You perma kill the skeletons using Menos' power, or the thwomps.

>>322669469
I saw it at GameStop for $1.50 and I said to myself, "It can't be THAT bad."
>>
>>322671962
I'm thinking of using my gamefly to give this a rent to see just how bad it really is, you people never shut up about it.

I mean it wasn't TERRIBLE, but not worth a £30 preorder after seeing one trailer.

Holy shit I totally forgot that this is a Bethesda game
>>
>>322671962

Oh man, this shit was shilled so hard. Pretty sure they spent all the budget on shitposting Brink threads on /v/ all day rather than actual devtime. Brink fags got BTFO hard and fast

Published by Bethesda, since ZeniMax doesn't have a good rep.

>>322672080
It's not bad gameplay wise, it's bad content wise.
>"Story mode" is just MP against bots with some cinematics in the same places at the end of a mission
>Game launched terribly, not being playable on half of peoples computers if they used an AMD gpu
>Not enough variety in gametypes
The movement was great and the guns were cool, the customization was great but the game suffered too greatly during its start to recover in time.
>>
>>322672080

Game has been dead since launch. Enjoy running around an empty server

>>322672718
Also maps were pretty unbalanced, generally favouring defence. And even further biased towards Resistance on defence.
That first junkyard map where you have to plant the bomb on the door is ridiculously hard considering all the vantage points defence had

Deception IV. Nothing but fucking regret. I assumed it was an upgrade from Deception III.

I was so wrong.
>>
LISA on /v/'s recommendation, I haven't actually touched it for more than five minutes because I realized it was an RPG Maker 2k game looking at the menu.

I'll probably play it properly eventually, maybe.

NEVER.

AGAIN.

Thought it was going to be like Dark Souls lite, hate it so far, everyone moves like their stuck in molasses and the art design is mostly wow tier shit
>>
>>322673417
i bought that game on release day. i loved the first one as a kid, nostalgia is a bitch.
>>
>>322673912
Why is that a turn off? Tons of great shit has been made in RPG maker, just avoid stuff that uses default RTP tilesets

Thats like hating every FPS/Action game since 2009 because it uses Unreal engine
>>
>>322671297

No kidding? I was going to buy a copy tomorrow.

Dragon's Dogma

For some reason I expected something vaguely like Dark Souls

Boy was I wrong

What a wild fucking ride that game was

Both games are like super personal favorites for me though

EDF Insect Armageddon was another one though and that sucked ass when I found out there was very little actual missions
>>
>>322674001
I bought a lot of games that sale that are on my backlog that I have to get through eventually.

>>322674285
rpg maker brings too many bad memories for me.
>>
>>322669982
Googling it it looks like a Mystery Dungeon game. If I like PMD games, would I like Sorcery Saga?
>>
>>322674409
I was expecting more Dragon Quest than Heros but if you dynasty warrior or Hyrule Heros than go for it
>>
I was hoping for a game that was like the PS2 .hack games

It's okay

I don't even like SAO
>>
I bought Legend of Legacy without checking it out first. It's okay but I'm not going to finish it.
>>
Can someone help me understand why this game sucker so bad? It's not like it's that much different from the first 2, yet it's so much worse somehow.
>>
>>322674409
Sheeeit, if it wasn't for the Holiday Sale, I would've bought it solely for beautiful HD Yangus. Koei games usually drop down in price after sometime.
>>
>>322674757
Yeah, it's on the easy side but the post game dungeon kind of makes up for it. Aside from that the story is simple but cute with good characters and tons of humor. And the music is really great.
>>
>>322674120
Badass cover though. Always catches my eye, even if it is just following the current cover trend.

Speaking as an RPGmaker dev who made a fucking short game for my friends in the sonic community ages ago, I know how dark that can be, but I don't think its right to just shut it out. I find it fascinating just to see the kinds of shit others do that I couldn't. inspires and gives ideas, yknow?
