What games are you HYPE for this year /v/? Pic related for me
It's not exactly Chivalry. More Mountain Bladey with having to choose the angle to attack or block from, although I think the controls work differently. And it also has a lot of AI grunts running around.
pretty much the only game im really hyped...i even know that there is better games out there but For Honor premise and art style looks too much fun for me...
i just hope is not just multiplayer
Had the chance to try out the game. It's really fucking good.
When you meet a guy and you both lock and start walking towards each other, shit is intense.
Hyped as fuck desu. My ancestry comes from a proud line of warriors. From Roman Legionaries to Reconquista Knights to Tercios, my heritage whispers to me. I thirst for the thrill of honorable single combat but because I was born in the wrong generation this game is all I'll have to honor my warrior bloodline.
Played the closed alpha and i'm surprised it's actually pretty good. The Knights swings feel heavy and hit hard, movement is a bit slow but still faster than the Souls games and the 4 maps we got to play were nice and varied. The only thing that pisses me off is the block/parry/counter system is easily exploitable by constantly changing the attack angle and spamming light swing. Combined with the poisoned blade and kunai throw skills of the Oni is just retardedly overpowered. I really hope they're doing something about this before launch.
Keeping an eye out on these ones:
Battle Chasers: Nightwar
Little Devil Inside
Night In The Woods
The Flame in the Flood
Enter the Gungeon
Forest of Sleep
Lost World Zero
The Deadly Tower of Monsters
Well, it is a shilling thread, right?
It's not even about indies, it's about games that are playable on toasters.
slowly im starting to believe i really am the only person on here that gives a shit about this
maybe its because theres not so many eurobros here
either way im actually excited as fuck for this
I'm into it in theory, but this is a Ubisoft open world game we're talking about here.
The trailer looked great, but every Ubisoft trailer looks great. I am wary of their treachery.
well considering its a shill thread ill say the reason im cautiously optimistic is its ubisoft paris working on it
that is ubi OG headquarters.
not ubi montreal or any of that.
sure it doesnt mean theyre "better"
but its the ubisoft development team that has done every single main ghost recon title since the inception of the series.
I got an hour through Nier and could not get into it. Why do a lot of people like it so much?
I'm excited for Nier 2 purely because of platinum. But I feel like I can't play it unless I beat the first
A little disappointing they're doing both a buy in and skins, but recent years have desensitized me to shekelgrubbing.
I'm not about the whole 'hardcore' competitive CS:GO stuff. It's not really for me. TF2 was my jam before it got all weird.
Digimon: Cyber Slut
I haven't paid much attention to it but I hope that Horizon is good
from the wiki page
> Players can also gain experience points to level up. The playable character can be customized. The loot found on enemies' corpses can be equipped to the Ghost. Weapons and gear can be upgraded as well. According to the creative director of the game, the AI of the game will be unscripted and will have their "own motivations and agendas"
>Digimon: Cyber Slut
You actually made me go look this up.
>knights vs. samurai vs. vikings
Wouldn't the knights just curbstomp the others? Vikings have outdated equipment since they're from like 500 years earlier than knights, while the samurai have fucking wooden armor and no good metal for their blades. Fairly sure a knight in full plate armor could just slap both of the other two down with little issue.
Looks like a casual alternative to Chiv/M&B, but that's not necessarily a terrible thing. Would help our shitter friends to be able to play longer than an hour or two.
Pretty damn hype for Shadow Warrior 2 and D:OS 2, Bannerlord if it ever comes out. Tentatively hyped for the new Torment, RCT:World, Camelot Unchained, and a bunch of smaller stuff, and REALLY hoping Mordhau commits to a solid Team-Objective styled mode. TDM/Duelling gets so god damned boring after 1000 hours.
If I'm gonna shill something though, it'll be Scrap Mechanic. I thought I was long-since burnt out on multiplayer/open world/crafting thing, but this looks like an interesting middle-ground between Minecraft, and shit like GM or Besiege.
I think it might be because it is a video game, anon.
In video games, you sometimes see things like historical facts ignored in favor of balance and fun.
That's just my take on it though.
>Hyper Light Drifter
>Hearts of Iron IV
>Mother Russia Bleeds
It's actually shaping up to be a pretty good year. Horizon Zero Dawn looks interesting as well, but I'm too poor to buy a PS4, so I'm not getting myself hyped for something I know I won't be able to play.
yeah i never said i bought that part, its just like the oblivion ai i bet
the actually interesting part about the wikipedia page is that apparently the game will have a completely new engine specifically for it
I guess, but what's the point of using historical sources then? Might as well make it low-fantasy or something. It looks interesting, because they use techniques like mordhau, but the premise is weird to say the least.
Why not? It is what they had access to eventually after all.
Sure thing man. I'm just questioning the premise since it seemed to be based on historical stuff. Why not just go with a fantasy setting if you're gonna go all bananas with realism?
Unclench your rectum.
Fantasy isn't necessarily elves and dorfs. I'm thinking fantasy nippon vs. fantasy germany vs. fantasy norway. But whatever, it's not important. I just found the time periods elected a bit odd. It's sort of like putting Ugub the Tomahawker vs. a greek phalanx.
A fantasy setting would accomplish this just as fine. You could have corinthian and norman helmets side by side. Or perhaps even templar samurais and pirate vikings. SKY'S THE LIMIT.
It's no big deal, I just find it odd.
I really hope this doesn't turn out to be shit. I just want a game besides MH4U that I can coop with my lil bro and go monster slaying and dungeon crawling with different classes.
>I'm just questioning the premise since it seemed to be based on historical stuff
But there's no reason for you to question the premise - it's basis in history is perfectly valid. These three martial groups existed in one form or another, and now this game is having them fight each other.
In games like Call of Duty, you mow down hundreds of enemy soldiers, mostly by yourself, and that is something that is most definitely impossible to actually do in real life. By your own logic, you are saying that every military shooter should have fantastical elements because it eschews reality at various points.
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada
The Guild 3
Because then they can justify the balance of the factions much more easily, and it also gives them more freedom to do whatever they wish.
And I'm not talking necessarily about elves vs. orcs here either, just a parallel universe or something, so you're not at all bound by history.
Either way, it's gonna be funny to see a katana slice clean though thick plate armor. The game looks fun!
The only one i'm really hyped. The other ones i'm strongly hoping for the best, but expecting something average (DaS 3, FFXV and Overwatch)
>just a parallel universe or something, so you're not at all bound by history.
That's obviously what it is. It's fiction. It's not reality. That makes it an alternate universe and they're clearly not letting themselves be bound by history.
Yeah i know it won't be nearly as good as it looks.
But i just want to relax for a while flying stuff
i honestly think they screwed the pooch on this one
hype levels were at a maximum but they took too long
itll sell okay, but itll never live up to the expectations of the masses
unless of course it does.
either way the artstyle is interesting and im interested to hear the ost
>These three martial groups existed in one form or another, and now this game is having them fight each other.
Right, that's not the problem though. The problem is that they existed in radically different environments/times, and as such it doesn't make much sense to pit them against each other and expect balance.
>By your own logic, you are saying that every military shooter should have fantastical elements
Well, newer CoDs do have that, because they're set in "the near future", giving them licence to add any kind of weird OP gadget that makes it easy to win. And you forget, that's single-player. To compare with For Honor: It would work perfectly well to have you as a knight going to Japan in the 16th century and murder samurai by the truckloads, because yes, that's how the technological disparity was.
>there's no reason for you to question the premise
I'm sorry, but I've already explained this several times. Please go back and read again if you're confused. It's fine to disagree with me, but you just say that I shouldn't have an opinion to begin with.
even though this wont be until 2017
IM SO FUCKING READY
I know the game itself is fiction, you silly man. But it's based on a historical setting, when I think it would be more suited to a "takes inspiration from history, but not ACTUALLY history" setting.
But you obviously disagree! And that's fine.
...did you just miss my point entirely there? Perhaps you ought to go back and re-read the post.
>But it's based on a historical setting, when I think it would be more suited to a "takes inspiration from history, but not ACTUALLY history" setting.
That's clearly what it is. What "historical setting" do you think it's based on?
Maybe we will finally get a new update to Cube World.
Wollay will surely deliver.
not sure but i think it must since its going for the gothic / stained glass (hence bloodstained) motif
the only thing i know for a fact is dracula himself wont be in it because it doesnt want to be too on the nose about being like castlevania
>but you just say that I shouldn't have an opinion to begin with
Because your opinion is based on a flawed argument - that games must either cleave to being full fantasy or keep to being perfectly realistic. You're not really making a point as to why that should be.
I mean when you say things like
>Because then they can justify the balance of the factions much more easily
You are essentially saying that there's no problem, you just don't like it for whatever reason. Whether or not balancing it while keeping it semi-realistic is 'easy' or not is irrelevant to both your argument and the intent of the developers as to the game they wish to make.
The justification the devs give is "These guys are fighting and you play as one of them." That's all it needs to be.
So yeah, your argument is kind of weak and I won't hesitate to point that out.
I think Dishonored 2 is out this year
The new Hitman looks more like Blood Money than Absolution so I'll check it out.
Interested in it but it's Ubisoft. I did like Siege but wouldn't pay more than $30 for it.
more games, even casual ones, in such a niche subgenre isn't such a bad thing though. The shitters rage-quitting Chiv after being on the receiving end of their first reverse overhead need a place to go, after all. Plus, if this game does well with the console friends, more money from publishers for slash-em-ups is a win, IMO.
>You're not really making a point as to why that should be.
I'm saying that it makes it easier to justify things. For example, why don't armor help at all in this game? Of course, next you'll say that "hurr, this argument is flawed, why does armor have to help at all!" and there we go again.
>for whatever reason
For the reasons I've stated many many times now anon. If you don't understand my reasons, then just ask. Otherwise, debate me. Your argument is that "it's a video game, therefore anything goes. Don't complain, it's a video game!" It's hardly a better argument than mine. In fact, it's pretty much the death of all discussion on the topic.
>the developers can make any kind of game they want! they don't have to listen to you!
Right, and I can still say that I don't really approve of that choice. You can choose to disagree with me. Your problem is that you take this line of "WHY IS THAT? WHY IS THAT? WHY DO THE DEVS HAVE TO CARE ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK?", which is pretty silly and childish in my opinion.
If you were a more clever man, you might have stated "In my opinion, it doesn't really matter if it's historically accurate or not. I suppose they could have gone for a fantasy setting instead, that might also have worked. Nevertheless, I don't think it will hinder my enjoyment of the game."
Instead, you say stupid shit like "your opinion is wrong".
>tfw I forgot the picture
I can't even shillpost right...
pic and FE fates are my 2 most hyped games for 2016
In essence, you're arguing for the game to be something you want it to be, instead of something that it is.
If you were arguing that the design choices they went with makes the game boring and not fun, or any number of things a game should not be, I could agree with you. But you're not arguing that. You're just saying "I don't like it."
So yeah, I shouldn't have said your opinion is wrong - your opinion is actually nothing. You don't really say anything interesting that we can actually talk about. My bad for not realizing this earlier, I guess we can actually stop this conversation now that we've cleared that up.
