If you could have any setting in a TW game, what would it be? Personally I'd love a Russian Civil War one.
>>4778 Anything about relatively modern warfare wouldn't fly in a game like this, FOTS was already horrific in the mixed arms warfare, shelling, etc and also quite small for the scale of modern war. Drakengard 1 could be cool, if far fetched. Also, ancient mesopotamian, how about that? But not shitty like Troy. For real, bronze age warfare but either completely high fantasy mythological, or totally gritty and realistic. Also, Volound keeps destroying. Now about missile combat. https://youtu.be/GEvYxZfwrQg
I just want a game set in the postclassical mesoamerican era with a spanish conquest setting, so I can wipe the floor with the spanish conquistadors as the aztecs:^).
>>4785 You can do that in medieval 2
>>4785 Literally Med2 Kingdoms you dumb mestizo

What is up with /v/'s constant threads about smash ultimate Comrade 07/07/2020 (Tue) 13:28:18 No. 2214 [Reply] [Last]
I honestly do not get their obsession with what character will get into smash.
8 posts omitted.
It's a popular video game and people like to see what character gets in. Where's the confusion?
>>2222 "/v/" is derogatory at this point so either 4chan's /v/ or its dozen spinoffs with the same retarded culture.
I don't get why people are angry the character from that game for little kids is going to get added to a game for little kids with a bunch of characters from other games for little kids.
It’s a good game and anons have nothing better to do since Nintendo doesn’t want to fix their joycons drifting so starting drama is the next best thing
>>2214 the game's roster has become a huge part of the game's marketing. also, there are only 4 more characters left to be revealed so people are worried that their most wanted won't get in when the dlc ends. >>5221 he's pretty good online

>>5063 Yeah it's true, but I got lucky I think. Are you a more experienced player? I'm not very far into the story. Is the battle pass worth it? How bad is the resin issue?
>>5064 I'm adventure level 28 going on 29 now. Progression slows a lot; I'd been binging the game pretty hard since I'm NEET right now, but I had to slow because I can't go faster without paying at this point. I will not pay a dime; I will not buy the pass, so I can't attest to it being worthwhile; it's ultimately your choice, but I wouldn't advise it because it doesn't seem wholly necessary unless you really wanna power through the game. Anyhow, I take issue with the whole resin thing, but ultimately the fact that the amount of stuff I can do on any given day is limited has promoted a healthier lifestyle for me. I can't just keep binging the game straight through to the cruel and bitter end because it prevents me from doing so, so I just hop on and do my commissions and the domains if they got what I need and leave it at that; it's fun enough that way.
>>5066 Hm guess I'll save my financial support for when they put out cosmetics. I don't want to power through the game, I want to just enjoy the slow burn.
Tried it. Luckly my attention span is so short I lost interest after the first session
The Liyue part just made me a little bit sad. Outside of the rich city, there are abandoned mines, villages with only elders and children. It strikes too hard, is this really espacism or just social commentary under the guise of isekai?

I've seen some people who claim this game has very revolutionary messages and even promotes anarchism but it just seems like a really half baked and generic "rebel against authority" message. Thoughts?

>>5076 Love Persona 3. Took the FeMC pill and didn't regret it one bit. Eternal Punishment is next. I've seen somewhat mixed reactions online but the good things I've heard have got me intrigued. >>5023 >>5078 Ok, mainline SMT it is. Is Nocturne a good place to start? I tried one of the DS ones when I was like 16 but it was too hard for me. Also wasn't too into/good at JRPGs at that point yet so idk, maybe it was just a me thing.
Haru's getting the guillotine, the floof is going into a basket.
>>5023 >They don't have or slice of life bullshit with teenagers taken straight out of your run of the mill romcom anime or galge. But that's unironically the best part. The turn based RPG is the lamest part of the game.
>>5187 Far too late on this but yeah, Nocturne is probably the best place to start. It is hard, definitely harder than 4, but nothing too impossible or demanding.
>>6094 I started P3 with this mindset but through the middle part I just kept booting the emulator on my free time only to dungeon crawl on Tartarus. The RPG part is weirdly compelling to me despite being pretty barebones. I played Nocturne after P3 and was blown away, now THAT'S a fun RPG. I still like P3's plot a lot >>6147 Is it? I beat Nocturne and went for the TDE on my first playthrough, it was kinda challenging but not really hard imo. On 4 I got filtered almost immediately by Naraku.

So Big Navi is (according to AMD's own benchmarks) better than current gen RTX in most games, uses less power and costs less (but still almost 1000 bucks).

Honestly I'm only interested in the low/medium range. That and the hope that this will lower the price of previous gens. My 950 is starting to show the sign of time, plus lately the nvidia drivers for linux are shit
(28.80 KB 640x424 torvaldsnvidia-640x424.jpg)
>>6111 >lately the nvidia drivers for linux are shit Haven't they always been? I always see novideo giving Linux users (and developers) a headache, and to top it off their drivers are proprietary, which is BIG CRINGE if you ask me.
>>6120 I've actually been having serious issues with Nvidia on my Linux due to driver madness. Between the lack of hw stock and this fuckery I am leaning extremely heavily towards AMD gpu for my new build (running a 10yo box rn). I just hope their drivers are up to snuff and that they actually have stock.
>>6156 I'm also stuck with nvidia on Linux (I'd still dual linux boot with amd anyway because I'm too lazy to sandbox everything properly) and afaik amd drivers are as good if not better than on winblows. Last I checked the FineWine™ meme was real and they took some time to become really good, though even a valve employee publicly shamed nvidia a few months ago and recommended amd over them for linux use (https://twitter.com/dan_ginsburg/status/1261403868279140353)

Is this literally the most based game apart from really specialist kind ones like Kremlin Games in the last few years?

>>3412 Its an Alexis Kennedy game so the bafflingly frustrating gameplay is intentional and you can find blogposts about how he deliberately made the gameplay irritating on purpose for narrative reasons which I feel missed the mark in this one (although I maintain the very slow pace of Sunless Sea was a major asset to the game that Skies lost). I get that he wanted to make it feel like you're a cultist in Lovecraftian fiction trying to piece together forbidden lore to figure out how to commune with your chosen god but for the most part it makes you start playing large chunks of the game on autopilot and losing the atmosphere while driving many people to just looking up how to achieve things. I have enjoyed the large amount of time I have spent with it but the signature AK frustration doesn't help this one. >I guess one shame is that there are quite a few wasted things. For instance certain principles, as I just couldn't find a use for them, I don't think I have ever used Edge or Winter ever All of the principles are really useful, edge, winter and knock are probably the 3 most useful because they are all key components in late game summons including the incredibly useful Maid In the Mirror which can solo most of the expeditions in the game and is required for one of the apostle ascensions.
>>4166 Similar to Disco Elysium in that they are effectively books with RPG mechanics. Different to it in that its also a weirdly punishing roguelike with grind.

Anyone here tried 'Lawless Lands'? It's a recently released Dark Fantasy RPG made by an Indie developer. Really fits mobile well if they could do it. Takes place in a pandemic ridden setting, full version released late last month. "Plunge into the Lawless Lands of Crossia, a once great kingdom where chaos slowly consumes more and more of the country. The cities have plummeted into poverty and crime, and the surrounding countryside is littered with famine and death. The army is close to collapse from an ever-lasting war and cannot stop the spread of the disorder. Hope is almost nonexistent, restoring order is believed to be futile, and panic lingers everywhere. Take on the role of a champion who rises from the ashes to end the suffering."

I like the idea of recruiting anyone from the city but thats about it
>>6057 > hacking the police to plant fake arrest warrants and getting people killled Uhhh, what?
>>6106 That's one of your hacker abilities, you can send a fake APB to go arrest whoever you want, and then there's an upgraded version so you can send in a heavily armed SWAT unit instead. If you use it on civilians they'll probably just get arrested but gang members will often enough fight back and then their buddies will join in which creates a giant horrific street battle (especially if either side calls in reinforcements).
