Thoughts on the Retron 5?
I've held that controller. While the buttons and analog stick are nice, the overall ergonomics are about as shit as you'd expect from something shaped like that.
Overall, it's a decent machine. Waiting on the Retron 6 to add N64 support. Someday...
Is there a chance that older style RPGs, in particular the ones heavily influenced by pen and paper games like Elder Scrolls: Arena, Wasteland, or Temple of Elemental Evil might make a mainstream comeback?
A lot of RPG titles in the last few years have been heavily streamlined, or outright omit some more traditional mechanics, and in many cases for good reason. Traditional RPGs being transplanted to a single player digital format are riddled with issues and compromises. Even in their native format they can show critical flaws. If you've never had to sit through a game of Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, just imagine jamming your arm in a blender while watching paint dry. So, with Skyrim axeing attributes, and Fallout 4 and many action games such as Farcry 4 opting for a Perk focused leveling system as opposed to skill based, it would seem that the public prefers the newer, more simplified way of going about things.
However, at the same time older titles such as Baldur's Gate, or Fallout 2 that show a greater deal of faithfulness to their tabletop predecessors remain popular, to the extent that some accused newer titles of being dumbed down. That implies, to some extent or another, that a market for this style of RPG still exists. In addition to this, Obsidian recently released Pillars of Eternity, a throwback to the isometric RPGs developed by Black Isle, from which much of the founding staff of Obsidian originated.
The genre is pretty much sitting completely on the shoulders of Larian, Obsidian and Inxile at this point
So far wasteland 2 and Pillars of eternity were pretty good so I'm hopefull for Torment.
Post vaporwave games
Playing SSX 2012, holy shit it's pure fun, what are other good arcade sports games?
In honor of all these games having nothing to do with the new canon, I ask of you, /v/, what was his name again?
This is the most fun I've had playing a game in a while.
It's great to troll in as well as there is no anti bad behaviour system yet. I lost my pleasure to do 5 matches a day of scoring on my own team and playing goalie and defense for the opposition.
>ITT: Post your pixel art
The last thread a couple days ago was a lot of fun. If you have any pixel art you've made either for a game or just for fun, post it here.
I'll bump with some of /v/'s autistic masterpieces from last thread.
What are some good anime games that don't suck or attract weaboo degenerates, /v/?
Dark Cloud/Chronicle is pretty good I hear. Star Ocean series is generally acceptable.
Persona seriesisn't that bad really, well not as bad as what people make it out to be anyway.
Why do so many girls play this game?
Me? I'm a gamer. Are you a gamer? Have a voice, let the people know!
