General Video Games discussion

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by Shockbox, May 4, 2009.

  1. Hi I barely play video games so I cannot hang in this thread but does anyone have tips on getting better at Super Smash because I am garbage at it despite playing daily since Christmas

    please my family is dying
     
  2. I'm definitely buying a Switch this year, but there's still a bunch of unfinished games I want to complete before spending a few hundred quid on a new console. I've beaten three out of four divine beasts in Breath of the Wild, but I haven't played the game in a while. I have a few more Wii U games that I haven't even started yet, like the Bayonetta games and Pokken Tournament. That's not even counting some older stuff I'd love to replay, like Super Mario Galaxy 2.

    Favourite gaming-related moment of 2018

    @WhenTheSunGoesDown:
    It's a tie between replaying Tomb Raider 1 and 2 with a newly made friend, and the incredible video game rate feat. Lady Cruncher

    @evilsin:
    The Ultimate Gamejustice by the amazing @Animalia

    @HeartSwells:
    Animal Crossing Reveal

    @DJHazey:

    Even though my favorite team (Reciprocity) lost this match, it one of the most exciting games in years if you ask most Halo fans. Reciprocity looked like they had control, but Spartan's controller dies right as he is grabbing a crucial sniper spawn and they never recover, but even then the game goes 49-49 in some intense moments before losing on the final kill.

    @OspreyQueen:
    Playing Fortnite with my boyfriend for the first time. Neither of us were really taking the game seriously and it was actually a huge laugh.

    @The Hot Rock:
    Overcoming my stupid binch disease and solving puzzles in Myst. :)

    @BEST FICTION:
    Isabelle reveal in Smash

    @DoggySwami:
    Resident Evil 2 remake presentation

    @LiK:
    Being the HUGE God of War fan that I am, and having played these games since age 14, when Kratos finally dug out the "Blades of Chaos" I was instantly hit with a rush of nostalgia and excitement in ways I can't put into words. It's very rare a game gets me to be verbally excited in ways that segment and immddiate action sequence did.

    @Animalia:
    The post-Animal Crossing announcement fake-out-but-actually-yes HYSTERIA

    @kalonite:
    Kingdom Hearts III slowly solidifying into an actual real game with a genuine release date after over a decade of waiting.

    @bakerboy92:
    Probably experiencing PAX East for the first time--and experiencing the Final Fantasy XV orchestral concert there. The whole convention was like summer camp for nerds and I lived for every minute of it, even as I walked (according to my phone) 20,000 steps one day in the convention hall playing game demos and talking with small developers, all as I dealt with a concussion. Commitment. (And probably stupid, in hindsight, but whatever.) Otherwise, probably the last few hours of God of War. Riveting stuff.

    @soratami:
    By some amazing coincidence, so many of my absolute favourite series that hadn't had any new games in years (Dragon Quest, Valkyria Chronicles, Ni no Kuni, Soul Calibur, Spyro, etc) all getting new titles in 2018, and them all being fantastic.​

  7. Play Fire Emblem characters and spam counters!
     
  8. I love this forum.
     
  9. Wait, I'm the only voter for Shadow Of The Tomb Raider? I hate this forum.

  12. Thanks! It was enjoyable to do and it's always great to see how the forum has fantastic taste in videogames. I mentioned earlier I just wanted to do something simple and straightforward here, but if I do it next year maybe I'll try to do something a bit more elaborate, with its own thread, etc.

  13. I had no idea Ace Attorney 7 is on the horizon. I assume that's coming to Switch? Hope we get more info on that in the next Direct.

  16. Nearing the end of Tokyo Mirage Sessions, and I can't see why Atlus or Nintendo wouldn't want to just port this to Switch? It's essentially a lighter version of the more recent Persona (post-Persona 3) games, with a small set of unique dungeons and 3-part sidequests for each supporting character rather than a full-blown Social Link.

    It was criminally under-appreciated just due to being a Wii U game, but I think the built-in install rate of the Switch could make it a savvy financial move (especially if Persona 5 is actually a contractual Playstation exclusive like I've seen theorized elsewhere).

    Anyway, wig:

  18. As much as Ace Attorney has jumped the shark, I'm still perched for it. That's my childhood right there.
     
  19. Has it though? The two 3DS games were fantastic. Spirit of Justice is easily one of my favourites.
     
  20. I am addicted to this RE2 dlc and I can’t even beat a 45 minute run on the harder ones. Dddd
