  1. Sony is giving away Journey and Uncharted collection for free (to keep) starting tomorrow. Journey is fucking amazing. GET IT.

     

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      and if you decide to burn 20 hours on an uncharted game make it the second one

    2. Sean

      Sean

      I'm indifferent to the majority of Sony exclusives but I'm willing to give the series a shot at this price. At some point

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Uncharted 2 is still one of my most favorite games of all time. Getting the updated 60fps version (along with 2 others in the series that are great in their own right) for free is a steal. Hats off to Sony for this.

    4. KHCast

      KHCast

      Spider-Man and God of War are still my favorite PS4 exclusives, but UC is pretty alright. If I already have them downloaded via PS+, can I still buy them here, or am I stuck with the PS+ versions? (Cause I don’t currently have it)

    5. Ryannumber1Scarer

      Ryannumber1Scarer

      This is brilliant, but I'm really hoping they offer up some more games, if only because I've already got these two, and I'd love to be able to get a chance to jump into a Sony series I haven't tried yet.

      I hope they add Gravity Rush 2 to this, that needs some love.

    6. Sean

      Sean

      Gravity Rush is one of my favorite IPs this gen. Sony needs more animu stuff

  2. Rick May, voice of Soldier from TF2, has passed away. I'm not a 2fort player but I loved the characters and Soldier especially. Devastating news.

    1. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      He was also the voice of Peppy Hare from Star Fox 64.

    2. JezMM

      JezMM

      Wow, very sad news - and can't believe I'm only learning that Soldier and Peppy's voice actor were one and the same here.

      I was already taking the pandemic very seriously, but this is the first time it's hit something personal to me. Despite everything, what a legacy of excellent work to leave behind.

    3. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      "Godspeed, you magnificant bastard..."
       

       

      While I did know he worked on Star Fox 64, I mistakenly thought he did Wolf instead of Peppy. It was Grant Goodeve (Engineer) who'd go on to voice Wolf in Assault.

    4. Sean

      Sean

      Reading that post by Lowrie made this news hit me really hard in a way I wasn't expecting, even after hearing many other people falling ill or dying from the virus. Seemed like May was an incredibly swell person and friend.

    5. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Okay, this one hurt me.

      Fuck. 

    6. Ryannumber1Scarer

      Ryannumber1Scarer

      Oh man, this sucks. I don't know many of his roles, but he was consistently one of the funniest VAs in TF2 and brought an insane energy to Soldier I doubt can be replicated.

      Rest in Peace.

    7. Captain Fun

      Captain Fun

      Fucking sucks. TF2 is a game that changed my life, and Rick’s performance as the Soldier is absolutely legendary. RIP.

    8. Solly

      Solly

       Saw this. Heartbreaking news. 

      I’ve been playing TF2 on and off for over a decade with hundreds of hours in Soldier alone. Rick’s performance always stood out as being one of the best in an already amazing cast. I’m deeply saddened by his passing but will be forever grateful for the countless fun memories he was part of. 

      Wishing the best to his friends and family. 

    9. Teospooker

      Teospooker

      Most of the TF2 VAs sadly got throat cancer, so i thought this would have been their doom eventually, but not like this. Knowing that Rick was the first major star that i know to die from COVID-19 is depressing to say the least (he was also the main villain from Sly 3).

    10. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      RIP Rick, he was a voice to one of my favorite games of the N64 era.

  3. Had someone yesterday tell me that it was my fault for being disappointed in KH3 because I didn't buy the DLC. Why are KH fans like this?

    1. Plasme

      Plasme

      I want to try out KH at some point, but I've heard it's a really hard series to get into

    2. Wraith

      Wraith

      its a series that has helped emotionally vulnerable people through a lot of stuff so they get kinda touchy when people pick on it. 

    3. Soniman

      Soniman

      When you already don't like a game additional dlc usually doesn't help, even if they improve the faults of the base game to a certain degree. Why would you expect they pay more money to add on to a game one didn't have fun with???.?

    4. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Please pay more money to get an actually fulfilling experience

    5. KHCast

      KHCast

      Most KH fans are super apologetic and defensive of Square Enix as a whole. See: most KH YouTubers 

    6. Sean

      Sean

      I generally take people's word that the updates and DLC have made KH3 a better experience, I just don't understand why I would drop more money on a game I didn't like and have little interest in revisiting.

      Also from the same conversation, they didn't seem to get how I can enjoy KH gameplay but not fighting superbosses, when I mentioned why I didn't buy the DLC. -shrug emoji-

    7. KHCast

      KHCast

      The only super boss I’ve thoroughly enjoyed is Lingering Will tbh. Maybe Xemnas in KH1. KH3’s dlc offers very little outside super bosses, so I can genuinely get why many don’t seem interested in it. You got data greeting, meh, and re:mind itself which is 80% rehash. The rest are super bosses that will even on normal, give you trouble 

  4. Spoilers: Aerith is really pretty

    1. Wraith
    2. Soniman

      Soniman

      I'm a degenerate so I'm in camp Tifa but yes Aeris is purty 

    3. Wraith

      Wraith

      it appears we will always be on opposite sides, no matter the conflict,

    4. Soniman

      Soniman

      Perfectly balanced as all things should be 

  5. I might play original FF7 soon since I always wanted to do that before I play the remake.

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      I’ve been going through my completed file while I wait until I can purchase it 

    2. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      I'm curious about playing it on my PS1.

      Unfortunately, to buy any disc copy requires you to sell your liver and your firstborn son.

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      It’s not too expensive on PlayStation or Switch. And both versions have the speed up function 

    4. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      It’s curiosity. I want to know how it originally looked and played.

       

       

      and spEAK OF THE DEVIL, I FOUND A COPY BEING SOLD FOR CHEAP LOCALLY

    5. Sean

      Sean

      I have the PS1 version on PS3. I could have bought one of the several different ports with enhancements but eh

    4. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      Why did they never make Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic 3, anyway? They made Sonic 3 lock on to Sonic 2, and that was it. 

       

      What a waste of technology.

  7. The best final boss theme is actually from a 90s point and click adventure game

    1. PublicEnemy1

      PublicEnemy1

      This is the first time I caught a double post before the OP deleted it, lol.

  8. I've been sitting here for a while trying to think of an official Mario game that's worse than Sticker Star or Color Splash and nothing is coming to mind

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      Mario Party 9 and 10 are also pretty high up there as far as missing the whole fucking point of your series goes and even they aren't as self destructive as sticker star and color splash

       

      those might be some of the worst sequels ever and they come out of a series with whats probably the best track record in the industry. It's wild.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      Sometimes I unironically wonder if the developers were intentionally trying to piss the player off by making them as bad as possible. Like take the Kamek's curse battles for example. Kamek randomly shows up throughout the story to mess up the battle system and all it does is make you mad. You can't run away from these battles and occasionally you might run into one that's completely unwinnable, such as having all hammer stickers against a flying enemy. No, there's no point to these battles, and no there's no way to fucking avoid them. This isn't a glitch or some programming oversight - they actually fucking programmed this shit into the games.

      Even Other M I think was just a misguided attempt at interjecting a deeper story and more action-based gameplay in Metroid. I don't think Sakamoto and his gang set out to make something bad. Color Splash feels intentionally terrible and I can't think of many video games in general that get to that level.

    3. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      Next time you find a debate that says Mario is a better franchise than Sonic, show them those two games and you'll always win.

       

      Also, reminder that those games made Hotel Mario canon

      Maybe the Wii U Mario Tennis?  It was functionally fine but so completely devoid of content. It's the only Mario game I can think of that I've bought, played 10-20 minutes of, and then never touched again.  I at least saw Sticker Star through to the end and whenever I do pick up Color Splash down the line I'll PROBABLY finish it if only to enjoy the jokes.

    5. Sean

      Sean

      I haven't played any of the recent sports or party games so I can't really comment (although I mostly take people's word for it since games like newer Mario Party/Ultra Smash don't look appealing to me at all). From my experience the two recent Mario & Luigi games come really close actually, but that's all I got.

      Between SS and CS I actually bothered to finish SS whereas I couldn't bring myself to for the latter. I think I hate Color Splash more which I didn't think would be possible going into it lol

  9. Sonic Studio is going to be the best Maker game ever

    1. Plasme

      Plasme

      It looks really good, but who knows when it will ever be released.

    2. Ferno

      the title screen better be a variant of this

      Indigo Rush

      I'm really looking forward to it

  10. Shanghai EXE's final boss theme is fucking fire. Even better is that it's a remix of a song from the very first Touhou game:

     

  11. What's some good Touhou media (games, manga, etc.) that's not the main Zun vertical shooter games

  12. I've been playing a Touhou/Battle Network fangame called Shanghai.EXE and it's really fun and makes me interested in checking out more Touhou stuff. The problem is that I despise bullet hell games 😧

    1. Tracker_TD

      Tracker_TD

      Yeah, bullet hell is pretty overwhelming. I do give them a look nowadays, but the only one I've put any real time into is CAVE's ESP Ra.De, which is probably my favourite vertical shmup period

      WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN!?

      - The story and translation are terrible. Everyone knows this already. Moving on.

      - BN4 is extremely stingy with giving the player good payouts throughout the story. You're underpowered at all times in the face of this game's sadistic viruses(es) compared to past titles, and there are way too many mandatory story moments where you're forced to give up your zenny, so it's impossible to save up for actual important stuff to buy like chips and powerups. I had to cheat my way through the game just to level the playing field, and this was only the initial playthrough before everything gets ridiculously stronger on subsequent NG+.

      - Every single scenario is fucking horrible. I can't stress enough that there isn't a single fun scenario to be had here. Everything forces you to run around the internet doing time-wasting tasks that range from tedious fetch quests to soul-sucking minigames that are harder than they have any right to be for a children's RPG game. Most if not all of them require precise timing and having to start over if you screw up even a couple times. And when it's not Mario Party AI-run minigames, it's obnoxious crap like having to locate the correct chips for ColdMan's scenario, and you're just shit the fuck outta luck if you don't have them at this part of the story. By the way, there's only three actual dungeons in the entire game - most of everything takes place on the main internet with some obnoxious gimmick attacked to it. Ugh.

      - For every improvement or new feature added to the battle system, you have one or two things taken away from you for no apparent reason. The add chip system is gone and you can only have a maximum of eight chips with custom program parts, unless you use Number Soul in one of the versions. Style change is replaced with soul unison, and considering the random order you get them, go fuck yourself if you get stuck with a soul you don't care about. Full synchro replaces bugfrag counter drops from 3, which makes it harder than ever before to collect bugfrags. ModTools and compression codes are completely gone for the NaviCust. The end result is a messy hodgepodge which can't figure out whether it wants to improve or replace BN3's battle system outright.

      - You can't run away from random encounter bosses. You can in past games. I don't think I need to explain what's wrong with this picture. And the omega variants are extremely brutal. AquaMan alone had 1800 HP. Jesus christ!! WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA!?

      - lol having to play the entire game three fucking times

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The only Megaman game that I've played is about 6 minutes of the MM11 demo...

  15. I'm good at video games

  16. Battle Network 4 makes me want to do my homework

    1. Celestia

      Celestia

      I assume parents love this game.

  17. Think I'm coming down with something, really worried about it.

    1. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      I'm really sorry. I hope it's nothing major.

    2. BlueSky

      BlueSky

      Well, if the probabilities are on your side it could be just common cold, and as long as you're not an elder person or have some health problems that'd make you more vulnerable to the corona virus you're prolly safe from the worst harm anyway.

      I suppose resting (and trying to boost your health/immunity, I have heard lemon, ginger, honey and some type of zinc are good for that) would be handy in all cases if it's possible for you to take a break but hopefully it's not corona at least.

      Just take care, I hope it's nothing serious.

    3. Sean

      Sean

      Thanks. I think the likelihood that I got the virus is pretty damn low but I can't help but be paranoid since I'm very germophobic. I'm also very worried about passing it to my family assuming I do have it.

    4. BlueSky

      BlueSky

      Well, I feel you, flus are something I hate myself, mostly because they're always hitting in the worst of times when it comes to the schedules, making doing anything three times as hard as usual and all. Probably the only reason I know any of those helps for flu at all... I cannot use the public transportation without gloves anymore, I have seen people first coughing on their hands and then touching and basically wiping their paws each and every bench-holding pillar on the way to the bus door... There was a person practically coughing straight into my hand in a train and after that I decided I'm not showing my ticket card to the reader anymore in there since it isn't obligatory when the ticket is for a certain time period anyway.

      Hope it gets better and isn't corona in your case.

  18. BN3's story is really good

    1. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Easily the peak of the franchise. 

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Dr. Cossack being the one who created Bass is a really cool twist. 

  19. Finished OSS, that's the first Battle Network game I ever finished 100% with all chips and Bass defeated. And it's gonna be the last because boss hunting is the fucking worst.

  20. Fuck off Capcom for making two event-only chips in OSS that can't be traded between games. It'd be like distributing an event Pokemon that you can't transfer between two games of the same generational pair.

  21. PSA everyone, don't talk about piracy on these forums. I've been seeing a lot of comments and posts lately mentioning this stuff so I want to remind you all that we forbid discussion of these matters here, and we're not going to assist anyone having trouble regarding games downloaded from the net. That is all.

    1. Speederino

      @Sean i was not expecting to see that image tonight for the first time in my life but i'll be damned if i'm not super happy that i did

  22. Something that's cute about OSS is that when playing as Geo, the normal virus theme is replaced with the one from Star Force 1, and the SF1 boss music plays when you're fighting ClockMan.EXE. Though I wish they used the victory music too while they were at it.

    4. Sean

      Sean

      @Pelvic WOO! engine There's a translation patch for the DS version. I'm not using it since I'm playing my imported copy on my 3DS though. I just follow an LP.

      https://forums.therockmanexezone.com/rockman-exe-operate-shooting-star-translation-proj-t4427.html

  23. So I played Battle Network 1, 2, 5 on the DS, and now I'm back to 1 on the DS with an untranslated cartridge, which makes NumberMan's random password doors a lot more annoying when I don't understand the hints lol

    2. Sean

      I've only played some of the first game. The battle system is weird and I don't fully understand it like I do with BN's, but I like the story and characters a lot.
