Did we have a thread like this before? Oh well if we did here's a new one.

I was so psyched for asura's wrath and now I here it consists of a shitload of quick time events. I haven't been this upset since my hand broke up with me.

Also that new lotr game has a ridiculous collecters thing. A fucking quiver with two arrows that are connected to a map.

There's a difference between a sports game and an FPS...a pretty huge difference actually.

Not when it comes to adding new content. MW and Madden are pretty similar on those terms: same basic gameplay mechanics, new modes and options every installment. I'd even argue the gaming culture of MW is leaning more towards athletic competition than video game (not saying video games are sports, just the mentality of the players).

GunZet
11-09-2011, 01:41 PM
But see, the major difference is Madden makes no attempt to have a storyline, lol. Because it doesn't have to. CoD without a storyline would boil down to finding the quickest way to expend a clip into an enemy as possible.

I hate Madden, but honestly it doesn't need to have a story or innovation. It's very much based on the real life idea of sports which is basically score as many points as possible. It's like advanced Pong.

Whereas an FPS kinda does as there is no real-life activity where you're going around shooting people with no account or reasoning behind your actions. Unless, of course, it's like an airsoft simulator or something.

Which is what I'm saying. The current state of the COD franchise is practically a sports/FPS hybrid, centered around player versus player competition. It doesn't need a storyline--in fact, I'd prefer the devs just dropped single player (outside of offline bots) and put full effort onto multiplayer. Or do we not have enough plot-driven single-player FPS games?

If people needed reasons to go shoot each other, paintball and airsoft would be limited to the scenario games where they originated. But they've evolved, and now paintball is essentially an alternative sport.

Thing is, CoD started out as a single player experience, and I believe it should have stayed that way. The series has sort of lot a chunk of its soul.

How many times can they do WWII though? You could make this argument if MW1 had just come out, but I think it's clear by now that the COD of old and the COD of now are practically different series.

I feel your pain, it's like when a band you really like starts making completely different music and you feel betrayed. But it happens. It's time to look towards a new WWII single-player experience. There's sure to be another one someday.

Broken is one of the most misused words in the fighting game community right there along with scrub.

Broken - A fighting game character being broken means that you have to use this character to win, or it has the ability to literally break the game and leave it in an unplayable state. Not to be confused with characters who are just good.

Scrub - Somebody who creates mental barriers for themselves based on the concept of honor. Not to be confused with people who joined srk in 2009.

It's not easy to determine whether you "have to" use the character to win. And while using an overpowered character is legitimate in a competitive setting, there's no denying that it is preferrable to have no definitive, obvious best character. At least 1 or 2 characters able to hold their own make the scene more enjoyable.

jubeh
11-14-2011, 02:21 PM
Its super easy to determine. If everyone has to use the character in order to be competitive, the character is broken. That's like the easiest thing to determine in the entire world.

What? It's not that easy at all. Are you saying as long as one person can win one tournament with one other character it's not broken? There's an entire gray line because no two people have the same exact skill level. The only way it would be easy is if we could find two identical individuals with the same skill level for every character, and have them play 100 rounds of every potential match-up.

And balancing 101 was to explain that, while it's foolish to complain about people USING a broken character, it's fine to complain about the existence of said character.

I've only ever seen a few, true. I understand it is determined by tournament results, and how a 60:40 ratio means the average tourney player of that character wins 6 times out of 10 against the average tourney player of the specified opponent character. If I'm missing something correct me, but that is by no means a controlled experiment. I would find it impressive if you've managed to find an individual with completely identical skill levels in every single character of a fighting game, cloned him/her, and convinced them to battle each other 100 times with each matchup. Quite the scientific marvel.

Seriously, it's all the fault of the management of GSC.
Putting up insanely short deadlines, thus not giving the developers enough time to thoroughly test the game for bugs and glitches.
Which is exactly the reason why the first 3 S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s were full of them. understanderbly, a large part of their employees moved to 4A games (the creators of Metro 2033 and the upcoming Metro 2033: Last light).

Yeah, okay, that's standard video game logic, but maybe they could have made it a little less obvious? Does that mean the 'lighting action' of the title only happens during cutscenes?

Speaking of the Indie Bundle, Jamestown is pretty awesome. It's like the western Touhou, but with local multiplayer, good art, and excellent music (Touhou's is honestly only good in the remixes).

Also if anyone has questions about the 3DS ask away. The 3D does in fact work well, and the system itself does its job impressively.

Yeah, I agree, lul. Pretty sure that title was supposed to be humourous, through... Actually playing it, you can tell that the developers went and chose the most impractical, silly design choices at every turn. That screenshot pretty much sums up the game, too. Hundreds of guns, hundreds of questionably animated bugs/robots, and hundreds of cardboard buildings in the way. Hog's heaven. :3

Kodos
01-27-2012, 02:19 PM
Yes. And yes on the second count. I believe Oneechanbara is considered of the same 'genre' and I believe even has some of the same devs - I know Goons were discussing who would win in a fight between the two games' protagonists, once.

Also EDF is itself the second game in a series. There was an earlier game, but it was Japan only and for the PS2. I understand it had two playable characters, one of which, the chick, had a fucking jetpack.

T1B3R1U5
01-27-2012, 02:28 PM
Yeah she did. Ever play onechanbara:bikini samurai squad? Yeah, me neither....

Kodos
01-27-2012, 02:31 PM
Just gonna say that if you don't like jetpacks, you are basically human filth.

Anyway, as for similar games. honestly Lost Planet 2 is probably the closest game I can think of in recent history that I played that felt at all similar to EDF. Just very arcade-y gameplay. But really EDF is one-of-a-kind.

T1B3R1U5

This cannot possibly be true as the co-op is the only thing that makes the game worthwhile and, on higher difficulties, possible.

I'm not even capable of giving a solitary care about the next gen because I'm so overwhelmed by the volume of gaming we already have that I'd just like some time to enjoy all of the stuff that already exists. Like I'm still discovering gems from NES era.

Get outta here, hipster.

So I beat Gears1 (360) yesterday. Now I've beaten every single one of em. Now where's that ME3 beta I was supposed to get from that BF3 thing, ah well, screw it.

Don't hate on Retro games man, hell I'm still playing Chrono Trigger from the (S)NES time. And as for the new Xbox, FUCK YOU MICROSOFT.

I do feel like we're jumping the gun on next-gen, but if anyone needed an updated console badly, it was Nintendo.

I'm just saying, from a personal standpoint. There are way too many good games I haven't played for me to be willing to shell out 500-600 dollars on a brand new console an anticipation of even newer games.

And I don't think any this-gen console needs an update at all. At this point, our hardware and graphics are more than capable of providing a full and robust experience for the gamer. They serve their purpose way better than we'd ever need them to to actually enjoy a game. Graphics may have been a problem in early 2000, when it threatened to break the suspension of disbelief because they were so blocky and couldn't express the full details of the game universe as, say, the art directors imagined it. But now they're hardly even a problem for even the crappiest console titles. It's no longer difficult to visually communicate things due to hardware limitations, for most cases.

I wouldn't say Piccolo is PC just because he got nerfed so badly and PC just keeps growing more powerful.

The PC is far more ahead than Consoles. And I think that consoles are just trying to prove that they can match PC's, which of course won't ever happen. They might, but that's a really slim possibility. I'm not hating on console games or saying that PC is better. It's just the sheeer amount of power that the PC holds is amazing.

Assuming your PC is a good PC.

Yes, yes. Assuming you have the money to afford the Power of the PC.

Only if you have cash.

That is quiet far from true.

Actually, you do say that PC is better than console. And again, PC require a lot of money investment.

Yeah, I was very contradictory on my last post there Clock. Like I always say, just because I say something, doesn't mean I'm right.

Reason I play PC is because I'm a graphics junkie, and the PC offers far more eye candy than the console can. And controllers suck for shooters that demand accuracy, fuckthat, that's what I have my mouse for.

Now I am an avid console player too, mostly because there are games I can't get for PC, or are good games, but have bad ports for the PC. Not to mention just to chill.

But having a nice gaming comp does cost a pretty penny and you sorta gotta know what you're getting, unlike just going out to wherever and buying the latest console stuff.

Yeah, I started my Pc back in '07 and I'm surprised with how mine handles now since I have updated it's hardware as newer and newer hardware came out. I can handle the most demanding games with ease and have a very exceptional FPS during a game. And also PC games mostly don't have aim assist which I enjoy since I don't like just being able to snap to ADS mode and automatically have a person's head down the sights.
