Mordy, Monday, 15 April 2019 19:37 (seven months ago) link

It’s basically the same game but new and made in 2019 fyi

Mordy, Monday, 15 April 2019 19:37 (seven months ago) link

Two Point is on my list but I still haven’t gotten to it

these are not all of the possible side effects (Karl Malone), Monday, 15 April 2019 19:38 (seven months ago) link

one of several jrpg series that i'm probably the only fan of here esp with lamp not around

ciderpress, Monday, 15 April 2019 19:40 (seven months ago) link

^ with soundtrack available on vinyl, released by hospital records!

it turns out the secret to making a fun open world game is the player is supposed to be a vehicle, not a human. i should fire this up again at some point, i never really exhausted it

ciderpress, Monday, 15 April 2019 19:54 (seven months ago) link

ppl love battletech esp those nerds at three moves ahead but i haven't gotten to it yet

Mordy, Monday, 15 April 2019 19:54 (seven months ago) link

let's see if anyone wants to take credit for this one

xp also an astoundingly pretty game, kinda goes without saying. this was my preferred alternative to RDR2 for that hi-fi graphics fix last year

ciderpress, Monday, 15 April 2019 19:58 (seven months ago) link

important use of xp there as it turns out

oops didn't mean to submit that yet. pretend i submitted that about 5 mins from now. like i spaced it out from the last one real nice

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boot Edge Edge" (Will M.), Monday, 15 April 2019 20:02 (seven months ago) link

how "gamey" is forza horizon 4? i used to love racing games when they were like super off road and daytona but the genre feels like it heavily went in a realistic GT direction which doesn't appeal to me at all.

Mordy, Monday, 15 April 2019 20:08 (seven months ago) link

forza motorsport is the realistic GT forza series, the horizon games are open world arcade racers, they're a lot more gamey and fun

ciderpress I'll play Atelier should I try that one or one of the Arlands, is there any difference between any of them

speaking of old games I bought Ikaruga on Switch last night

holy shit there was a cliff Johnson style puzzle game released last year? Woooooow thx ilg!

lumen (esby), Monday, 15 April 2019 20:43 (seven months ago) link

I also played System's Twilight in the 90's which based just on that screenshot was almost certainly a direct influence upon System Syzygy! It was a good game. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System%27s_Twilight

Dan I., Monday, 15 April 2019 20:47 (seven months ago) link

I found out about System Syzygy from andrew plotkin's blog (he created system's twilight and also he was the guy who turned mafia into werewolf).

adam the (abanana), Monday, 15 April 2019 20:52 (seven months ago) link

I threw Detroit a vote but definitely don’t recommend it unless “Quick Time Event: The Game” sounds up your alley or you’re a Clancy Brown superfan. Humorless, self-important, cliche, very clownable! AND YET the gimmick of pressing a series of buttons to make characters do boring things like set the table or gather wood eventually made me care about them more? It’s like, I tucked in this orphan girl and told her a bedtime story you’re damn right I’ll murder every human between her and the android haven of Canada.

orifex, Monday, 15 April 2019 20:59 (seven months ago) link

lol

(1 vote) the Last of us

HI DERE. If not for TLOU, I would definitely have voted for ace rhythm game Yakuza 0 (though if not for TLOU, I may not have gotten back into console gaming).

Audrey Tautoulogy (Leee), Monday, 15 April 2019 21:16 (seven months ago) link

There's an iOS game called Calculator:The Game, it's got wacky buttons, so on the level I'm on now you start with 91 and your goal is to get to 19 in 6 button presses and the buttons available are '+5', 'Mirror' (12->1221) and 'Sum'

The Room is the OG very fancy looking room escape / object manipulation games, yes?

I did actually play System Syzygy last year, it was great but I would have completely forgotten about it if I'd voted (which I didn't)

Andrew Farrell, Monday, 15 April 2019 21:19 (seven months ago) link

Also I will probably repeat this later but I heart ILE as somewhere that loves games but will give an industry behemoth like MHW 5 points total (NB this is not in any way a reflection on the quality of MHW)

Andrew Farrell, Monday, 15 April 2019 21:22 (seven months ago) link

(xp @silby) if you're patient, wait for them to put Atelier Ayesha on switch which is both an entry point and the best game in the series according to several people i trust on this stuff (i haven't played it yet myself). if you're impatient, rorona is a fine entry point / litmus test, and totori is a bit harder but my favorite of the ones i've played

ciderpress, Monday, 15 April 2019 21:28 (seven months ago) link

I can be pretty patient considering I still have to beat Octopath or at least beat someone's chapter 4 I'm so slow lol

yeah this is making me immediately interested as well

though it also made me realize that i've stopped getting the monthly emails from cliff's mailing list that i've been on for years and he stopped updating his site, hope he's okay

ciderpress, Monday, 15 April 2019 22:08 (seven months ago) link

Moved too fast! I haven't heard of like 90% of these!
hole.io was fun.
I loved Theme Hospital, flaws and all, Mordy. But I am a cheapskate who will wait for that game to go under $5 or be included in a bundle for pretty much any PC game.

Nhex, Monday, 15 April 2019 22:52 (seven months ago) link

that's fair. i don't regret paying for it - it had a good amount of content and my 7yo loves playing it too.
