  1. I've been playing Dishonored for the first time and it's great stuff so far. Also been doing another run through Prey 2017. Someone at 2K get Arkane on BioShock 4 pls

  2. Considering the showcase forum is for displaying one's own works, I'm going to move this to the fan games subforum. And yes, next time please write a bit more in your post. A short paragraph describing what the game is and who made it should do.

    Happy birthday Ferno!!

  4. Just finished Mafia 2 and that was a big fucking disappointment. None of the characters are worth caring about and the story goes absolutely nowhere. Coupled with all the removed features including elements from Mafia 1, I can't see myself ever replaying this.

  5. I knew this exact shit was gonna go down the immediate moment it turned out that it would be exclusive to the Microsoft Store. I refuse to ever install UWP games on my computer due to all the problems they cause.

      It probably looks better on a Pro than the base model which I'm using, but it's rather pretty even though I wish it ran at 60fps.

      Aight, I'm sold. 

  7. I never really thought about who the worst Mega Man character would be, but now that I am it's definitely Sigma

      Hey Lumine's design was cool 

      And that's about it he was shallow as a pond.

      But I love him ♥

    4. Sean


      He only looks like that because Capcom couldn't get the rights to Skeletor's likeness.

      I don’t really hate or dislike anybody but I’d have to say Duo 

    6. Ryannumber1gamer


      I don't think Sigma's that bad, at least for the first few games. Around X4 though, he becomes downright awful. They should've killed him off in X3.

    7. Sean


      @Dejimon11 And to make matters worse Duo.EXE was awful and starred in the worst BN game. In MM8 though he's just kind of whatever to me

  9. 4th Chaos Emerald has been banned for being a bandodger (Misfit the Hedgehog).
  10. Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection will be free on Epic Games Store in a few weeks.
  11. So Mystic Realm was updated for SRB2 2.2 recently, and the new Tempest Valley theme fucks.


    1. Adamabba


      Oh snap I gotta play that. Been a while since I played SRB2, I'm sure there's a ton of cool new 2.2 mods by now.

      I've been very close to 100% in it for a few months I was just too lazy to get the last few emblems that're hidden in the challenge stages and never went back since lol

    2. Sean


      I don't think Mystic Realm holds up very well (given that it was the first level pack ever made for SRB2 and all) but I'm thinking about giving it another run for nostalgia's sake and because I appreciate them redoing the music for this release.

      lol yeah 2.2's emblems can be brutal. I got all of them but I can't see myself doing it ever again. Fang's emblem in Aerial Garden sucks.

  12. Something I didn't know until now is that the Wonder Boy: Dragon's Trap remake on PC contains a rom of the original Master System version. Always low-key regretted not picking this version up on the Wii shop before it closed, so it's neat having legal access to it nowadays.

  13. lol Mafia 2 definitive edition is trash.

    (loud warning)


  14. Sid Meier's Civilization VI is free on Epic Games Store. https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/sid-meiers-civilization-vi/home
  15. Assassin's Creed Discovery Tour for ancient Greece and Egypt are free on Uplay. These are standalone games that let you explore the settings of Origins and Odyssey in an educational context. Ancient Egypt: https://register.ubisoft.com/aco-discovery-tour/ Ancient Greece: https://register.ubisoft.com/acod-discovery-tour/
  16. SA2 is the only ranking system in the series that I think feels "right" and fair. The new games have a system that might as well give you an S for simply booting them up, but on the other end of the spectrum there are the Rush games which I think are far too strict. I did get all S ranks in them years ago, but I tried again earlier this year and couldn't do Leaf Storm 1 even after almost an hour of playing.
  17. "You can't say for certain that the prototype we saw of Sticker Star would have been better than what we ended up getting"

    lol I've seen everything now.

    1. Wrapped in Black

      Wrapped in Black

      People who defend these games did not play them. 

    2. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      that's actually true tho

      sticker star was horrible but for all we know so was the early stuff

      i mean i kinda doubt it, traditional battles alone prolly woulda made it better than the final product

      but for all we know the new formula was invented because they were doing a really bad job going forward with the old one

    3. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      that is however a pretty random and useless thing to say because in theory any game could have been better or worse at one point than it ended up being so it's all hypothetical

  18. The Lego Ninjago Game is free on Steam, PSN, and Microsoft Store (the links will redirect to your regional store). Might be delisted soon.

  19. Alan Wake is on sale for $1.50 since it's its tenth anniversary so I grabbed it on a whim. It's pretty interesting so far, and not a straight horror game like I initially thought it was.

  20. I'm going to need a thorough breakdown of the battle system before I consider jumping on board with this. Sticker Star and Color Splash are the worst Mario games I have ever played and I'm not seeing much here that shows me this is the improvement I've been looking for.
  21. lol Sonic Forces still has Denuvo.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      I was actually gonna get Forces and TSR on Steam because since my new laptop can run N Sane and Reignited at 80 on Ultra, I thought they'd run fairly well as well.

      Aaaaand then I noped right out of there when I saw they both still had Denuvo. 

      I don't know a whole lot about Denuvo, but I've heard the horror stories surrounding it, and it's frankly made me steer clear from any game that still has it. Which kind of sucks, because pretty much all of Square's games still use it.

    2. Sean


      Whenever I buy a game on Steam that has Denuvo I make absolute sure that I have a crack on hand to use it outside of the client. At least some companies remove it after a certain period of time, which I would be perfectly fine with if it were standard procedure, but that just doesn't happen often outside of some Capcom and Bethesda games. It's worth mentioning that FFXII recently removed it with the Switch feature patch, which might be the first Square game to do so.

      And speaking of Square, fun fact: Mankind Divided recently got a release on GOG (a site where games are sold DRM-free), yet the Steam version still contains Denuvo. This happens more frequently than you might expect and it's infuriating for existing owners.

  22. One of the coolest Sonic discoveries ever short of obtaining the proto itself. Hopefully that happens someday.
  23. I saw someone mention that the SM64PC port shadowdropping out of nowhere (whether or not it was released by the devs themselves) did more harm than good, and I think I agree with that. Unlike other reverse-engineered source ports out there like Sonic 3 AIR and Doom 64EX, people are under the widespread misconception that it is illegal and Nintendo is going after the entire project. There isn't an official repository where you can obtain the source code so news outlets have been reporting this shit and getting all the facts wrong this entire past week, and it has really harmed the credibility of the project even though it doesn't deserve it.

    To put it succinctly, the precompiled binaries are definitely illegal because it contains actual rom data and assets from the original game. The code itself - which is 100% reverse engineered and contains no official Nintendo code - isn't, and it's perfectly legal for anyone to compile it using their own dumped game.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I mean, it's still Mario 64. Even if you argued that they recreated every 3D model, every texture and ever piece of audio from scratch (which they didn't), it's still the Mario IP and it's still undermining SM64 in some capacity. It's got to be illegal from that angle, right?

    2. Sean


      If you distribute the compiled exe itself, yes. That contains official copyrighted code and Nintendo is in their right to shut that part down.

      However the reverse engineered code is legal because it was made from scratch and doesn't use anything from Nintendo's version of the game. You won't find anything like the music, models, art, or sound effects in the source code, but instead only code to interpret that for a different environment (so for DX12, OpenGL, Linux, other video game consoles, etc.). You need to still have a rom on hand in order to compile it into a usable game.

      It's similar to how Sonic 3 AIR doesn't contain any actual copyright code and instead relies on the rom to function at all. In fact, it's exactly the same thing, and most of everyone here considers AIR to be a legal fan project, which it is.

    3. Tornado


      It's true that the way it was released probably hurt it, but you also have to consider that it's Nintendo's biggest IP and Nintendo is above any criticism on a lot of the internet no matter what the circumstance; so there's a bit of an uphill struggle regardless that those other projects didn't have to face.

      Maybe if they hadn't coviniantly released this moments after another massive leak of the Wii and others, Nintendo wouldn't be so pissed.
