Do people even play video games for the story anymore?
>Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9
>Kane&Lynch (fuck you, I enjoyed it)
>Baldur's Gate 1/2
that doesnt necessarily mean that the gameplay is bad (it wasn't for any of these titles), but the story made the games even better.
>inb4 faggots go apeshit about people not bashing K&L
Cinecasuals play primarily if not ONLY for story.
It's actually killing video games since devs/publishers realize they don't have to make games just some interactive movie with fanfic-tier writing from desperate hacks who couldn't break into the actual movie business. A big enough marketing budget for some paid 10/10s and retards will buy it every time.
what about MGS?
the gameplay is pretty much the same for all games, sneak and punch guards to death for 30 minutes and have a 3 minute long gimmicky boss fight. repeat until end of game.
i can imagine people ONLY playing these games to see how the story develops, given that the gameplay doesnt offer much really.
>punch guards to death
oh shit son wtf are you doing!.bmp
>i can imagine people ONLY playing these games to see how the story develops, given that the gameplay doesnt offer much really.
ok, someone clearly does not know about the amount of TECHNOLOGY and GAMEPLAY the series offers.
Are you blind? Have you not seen how many The Last of Us threads there have been today?
Of course people still play games for the story. Some even play games for JUST the story.
Cathrine has some great backstory.
Also no underwear under nylon pantyhose is my fetish.
Tits = Plot
Ass = Backstory
Pussy = Gameplay
The used to be shallow explanations made to pander to westerners to all the weird japanese shit from the NES forward, but now they serve as the life line to the pseudo casual audience, who will lap up anything you give them so long as they never, ever lose at the game or die, just like a movie.
Well, it IS caturday.
>tfw I constantly nut inside my perfect skinned black GF
>all dem hips
>next to no porn of her
What kind of sick god brought this reality into existence?
i have a white on black creampie fetish, but there are so few hot looking female black teen porn stars...
it's depressing, really
ALSO, i loved the plot in Vagrant Story
>not watching it in frog speak
i seriously hope ...
But her massive ass is the most perfect thing for
drawing getting stuck in door frames, chairs, and having trouble putting on pants by herself, because that is my fetish
For a character from one episode (and brief appearances in one later), I'd say she does alright.
Is it f2p on the brit servers yet? I checked before and all items outside of the noob island as still 'subscriber only'.
I replayed Alpha Protocol 4 times to see how the story changes.
>tfw my French teacher had Petit Spirou and Titeuf-comics lying around her classroom for everyone who finished their tests soon enough
>all that subtle and not so subtle innuendo that went over my head
There was also a comic about liliputians and a topless female centaur, but I don't remember the name right now.
>Found my mother's comic stash when I was like ten
>Literally a bunch of compilations of comics of the stories of a prostitute and, quote, "a liberated woman enjoying sex"
The things I learned that day, oh man.
>tfw your French teacher would rub your shoulders and scratch your back during tests
and surely you caught the hint and took advantage of her affection, right anon?
man french teachers are the best
>my high school french teacher
>loveliest derriere in the school
>always wore tight trousers and jeans
>often dropped her white board markers
>wore low cut tops that showed her growing freckled chest
>mfw i sat in the front row
she got preggo twice and still kept her figure, shit was so cash
Almost enough to make me wish I took French
Japanese teachers are shit-tier, but at least it got me the basics I needed to start learning on my own and playing more video games
Learning French is pretty much worth it just for those god-tier Franco-Belgian comics.
And translated manga that you won't find in any other country outside of Japan. French are huge weebs.
I bet this gives you a big ole' boner don't it? You sick fuck.
Nox has the most fuckable wife ever possibly
>tfw you finally understood that "xelor" is
My mind was blown away!
>wanted to give the Wakfu show a shot but could never find any hd quality downloads
now you need to figure out sadida
So you're conceding that it's hard to get hold of without resorting to torrents then?
>He didn't back the Kickstarter
>he's not getting Blu Rays of both seasons for 35 bux
I can understand that, but I just feel like a moron now.
>all that woo pitching
>in a children's show
You've gotta love animation as a whole
The disc sets are supposed to arrive around november, right?
Also, have one of my favorite faps recreated in AA2.
October if I'm not mistaken, but I wouldn't be surprised if it got pushed back for whatever reason.
I'm not a frog tho I'd like to speak it one day tho
In the MMO i played as a female Osamoda, and got hard as fuck thinking about the body switch spell, with the idea that she could be inside a male beast and have a ravishing animalistic sex drive to deal with, whilst the beast would act without any and all manner, lick herself, walk on all fours, showing her cooch etc
How I did not see that.
>Do people even play video games for the story anymore?
I do. That's why RPG is my favorite genre, and why shooters bore the fuck out of me.
Graphics and action alone make for shitty games
Girls acting like depraved beasts in heat is one of my biggest fetishes
you can download trhe entire season 2 with subs at 1080p without annoying logos from mega. i have an entire dl list from pastebin here, but i don't know about any direct downloads for 1080p season one
forgot the pastebin
>oh this looks neat but I'll back it later
>i still have 3 days i'll just back at the last minute
>oh shit I completely forgot about this a bloo bloo bloo
repeat for every humble bundle/kickstarter.
honestly it works out well sometimes
>tfw you just cant get the show's art style down
Wakfu is an MMO based on the world of Dofus, another MMO.
They made a series for France 3 spanning 2 seasons and a show based on Dofus lasting I think 52 episodes.
there is currently a movie for both Wakfu and Dofus in the works.
the game is still updating and being worked on. Check the /vg/ thread for details but ignore the drama. the ingame guild is actually pretty cool.
I mostly still do. I enjoy games like MGS and Kingdom Hearts, Asuras Wrath and Bayonetta.
The experience these kinds of games give me is totally different than movies and books, so you can't just tell me to go read a book instead.
>Do people even play video games for the story anymore?
A game is literally a story. The mechanics are there to make that story engrossing, like any other feature of games development. that's what separates a video-game from a board game.
the first half of the season is pretty fillery as it tries to set up the world a bit. it gets interresting when shit with Nox goes down
Well, it's possible people ordered multiple times with the intention of flipping the Blu Rays, so there's that.
>the first half of the season is pretty fillery
not the guy you were replying to, but that probably explains why I got bored of it
I was going through that episode where some big guys bully little guys for fruit, and the gang train the little guys or something
>tfw they thanked /co/ and +4chan in the kickstarter
Probably now more than ever as it has become and areas in which we've seen a great progress in modern times as well as things along the line.
I mean just such a thing as being able to fit voice acting into our games did a great deal, it enabled us to get rid of unwieldy text boxes and we could have communication between characters (as well as monologues) on the fly instead of having to stop up with the boxes, as well as the fact that they now held much more emotion. Along with the graphical capabilities which enabled us to show much more spectacular events as well as details on characters and their reactions.
So yes, I do believe people (I doubt they did it as much at the start of what we'd call modern videogames because it was simply not as good) play for the story, and they have the best possibilities ever to find something that gives them a good quality story today if they want it, which everyone should want if they have standards.
What on earth would lead you to believe people somehow tossed away story as a quality element which a game should strive to incorporate? Was it /v/? Because /v/ is dumber than a sack of doorknobs when it comes to valuing graphics and story amongst other things.
you can find both seasons here
which was my point. a game can be a game without being a story.
you should give it another chance, maybe skip past the fillery episodes
>there are people playing the MMO RIGHT NOW who havent watched the show
>A game is literally a story.
Are you fucking kidding me?
Of course they do, I think a few of them were in the constant threads about the kickstarter.
Also, the guy mentioning ZONE on that poster they made must be pretty ballsy, I guess everybody knows what he meant.
>which was my point. a game can be a game without being a story.
A content creation engine is not a game or a story, although you can have fun with it.
>a game can be a game without being a story
then it is more like a conventional board-game or sport, neither of which are particularly impressive experiences in the grand scale of art.
>season 1 episode 17
i played it for a while, but didn't get too far because the game has some problems for me, dunno what it is, but every 5 minutes or so the game will run very very choppy for a bout 30 seconds and after a while it just annoyed me so much that i stopped
>and the list goes on
I love it when people list that as last resort so it wont look like their arguement is shit.
>pic related has also a lot of lists that keep going on and on
>muhdickwhen seeing r34 on wakfu
>mdw the creator asked for there not to be sexually suggestive drawings of the characters.
Is the game any good?
Should I get Dofus or Wakfu?

There is not a single name in the fucking game that isn't a joke
>Paper Ring named O'ring Ami
>Staff called Flatu Lance
Nox was such a fucking badass, that faggot from second season had nothing on him
And its funny how when Nox fought Grougaloragran it felt like the battle of the gods
and when actual demigods popped up in the end of season 2 it felt like 2 hobos slapping each others
Selling them yes.
"Flipping" is a term used for buying something, and selling it later for a profit.
I'd rather they do what they want, because i enjoy the show , the artstyle and most of the things surrounding it and think that the animation is good enough,
I didnt like the origin short, i felt it was a huge cop out, the dragons should have been responsible for the death of his family
This would make his motivation more rooted and less about him being crazy, and this would better show the character of the old dragons who werent exactly so perfect themself
>mdw the creator asked for there not to be sexually suggestive drawings of the characters
>implying he didn't know
>implying that by asking that you not do it he guaranteed twice as much lewd material
I keep seeing different versions of this exploitable.
Where was it originally from?
Just watch it all you dofus they are all good or are you too adhd infected to watch 24 episodes a 24 minutes?
>wow adventuring sucks
>fuck learning more about characters
>fuck yeah action whoo hoo
The dub isn't available yet.
Still it stood out way too much from the art and story of the show, you could tell someone else was involved.
Both the plot which was very weak and very generic for a villain origin "lel he went insane", and even the art style was very poor. While it might you remind of a time when shows had little to none art direction it should be a good thing, nostalgia is not always positive.
Also it retconed the whos a bi, in which it was implied dragons killed noxs family.
No, you were asking a question you weren't sure of the answer too.
That the artstyle "looked old" is pretty fitting imo because the events are a long time ago, so with that retro artstyle give you the feeling of something old right from the first moment.
And his story really isnt just "lol insane"
>tfw my name is Nox
>people only call me Cox
>they think they are comedy geniuses
Everywhere I go, I must hate.
>you will never be stuck in a prison with two hot teenaged girls
>tfw my name is Herman
>comedy geniuses call me Sperman
>some people call me Herman the German Merman
>tfw I'm not even German
>"but i've seen you naked and it wasn't in my dreams"
What the shit? I hope this is bait, because nobody can be this retarded. Either way, I'll bite.
>gameplay is pretty much the same for all games
Clearly you've never played them. Each MGS game adds new tools/equipment to the player's inventory and new mechanics to play around with. Having the core gameplay remain the same but upgraded with each game is what a series does.
>sneak and punch guards to death for 30 minutes
You suck at Metal Gear games.
>have a 3 minute long gimmicky boss fight
Giving the player options in a fight doesn't make it gimmicky. Being able to take on a boss with a variety of methods is a good thing. A gimmicky boss fight would be something on the 3DS, where you have to shake the gyroscope to do damage. And 3 minutes? Someone's never done a glorious sniper vs sniper battle against the End.
>I can imagine people ONLY playing these games to see how the story develops, given the gameplay doesn't offer much really
You know you're talking about Metal Gear Solid, right? Every single game is chock full of TECHNOLOGY moments and easter eggs, and almost all of them come across in the gameplay.
I know you're baiting or shitposting or whatever the kids are doing these days, so I guess this means you got me. You're
>hating being called herman
whats wrong with you
That's not funny. What IS funy is your reaction images. I'm laughing harder than I should be.
>new tools and equipment
Gosh, better run out and get MGS right now.
What game doesn't fucking do this?
>sneak and punch guards to death for 30 minutes
He's right you know.
>Giving the player options in a fight doesn't make it gimmicky.
It does when there's only one option, which is pretty much every MGS boss battle ever.
>you will never slap evas ass till she is your mindbroken cockslave
Litteralygreg needs to do this kind of thing but with the wakfu grills
So, when are those special episodes supposed to come out?
you'd be surprised on how many "innovative" nicknames people've given me over the years. Hurlman (when I'm drunk), Blurman (blurred out photo of me), punman, hunman etc.
Life is suffering
Fuck, I'm stupid.
>name is roy
>some people call me boy toy
>others call me goy
There is only one reasonable and scientific proven explanation.
the sheer amount of lewdness this show inspires is great
So when will Platinum make a Wakfu game?
The Korra one actually looks pretty fun
It should be kind of like Dragon's Dogma, with each caracter having an entire different playstyle. But you can't put all the show's charm into vidya, sadly. I'd rather vote for using those funds to make more seasons.
Downloaded a batch but have yet to watch it. I like the designs for Wakfu in general. Plus some of this shit can be adorable.
>But you can't put all the show's charm into vidya, sadly
I think it can be done, it'll just be a challenge.
You'll have fun. Mini-Wakfu is a treat.
>I think it can be done, it'll just be a challenge.
I've never played a vidya with that kind of charm.
Some of it comes from their mastery of Flash animation, which of course wouldn't be in a videogame. The friendship and all that kind of stuff wouldn't be shown in the same way at all, also. It would be idle talking and cutscenes, which wouldn't be nearly as effective as the show, since the nature of a cartoon show and the nature of a videogame are entirely different things.
A good game(not a turn based mmo) based on the Wakfu world is totally possible, but not a good game based on the Wakfu show's plot and characters.
Oh god what
How many Seasons of Dofus are there now? I think I finished after 2, but that was a good show
>I've never played a vidya with that kind of charm.
Though there will be elements that simply get lost in the transition yes, I still a game based off the show could be good, at least decent.
>we apologize for the lack of hips in this update
if that means what i think it means then im gonna watch this show ASAP
You're not saying you have a problem with Xa are you? Because then we'd have a problem. And I don't want a problem anon, I want to be your friend.
What a fucking day for my revers google search to be broken. This is truly hell.
Could be fun.
Iops sort of get that look in their eyes.
That's how Iops are. They're good people, honest.
They're just dumb warriors who care only about fighting, so it's natural to be a little unhinged
u wot m8?
i bet i have read more trap porn then you ever will in your pathetic little life, but that style is seriously fucknig ugly
Get some taste
>it seems as if the topic has shifted a bit...
A bit indeed.
It's what happens when you make an OP loaded with a double entendre.
I watched this fucking show before traveling to the capital of Frogland to understand their fucking language and
Now post more of this bitch
Do you like the barbershop?
>mfw a qt3.14 is going with an electrical shaver over my head
That vibration could kill me it feels so good.
This feel...I know it.
I've been going to the same hairstylist for the past two years and when they get the trimmer out...well, I try my hardest not to pitch a tent.
I think she's on to me but I don't know what to do.
If you guys want a great animated french film with hips and tits, also try Lascars.
It's like your shitty slice of life animes, but actually funny and well animated.
France is so based when it comes to animation.
God damn it anon,
stop giving me more fetishes
>Finally cave in and email DaHootch, asking if he takes ideas and knows what Wakfu is. Leaving some links to downloads and images.
>2 weeks later and no reply.
There's enough Wakfu porn already if you know where to look
They should both be in /vg/'s database, but here you go.
You guys just gave me fetishes I didn't know I had.
You'll need elf ears for Eva, but it looks okay without them.
>Acting like you're above that.
Besides, doujins are an extreme rarity and the only real one isn't even of the girls.
Time to watch Wakfu now, I guess. You
wonderfulfaggots have finally convinced me.
Since I'm already on it, I'll dump the few I have.
The first few episodes are a bit slow (I blame the fucking awesome fight in the first one) since they are focused on showing you the world and some silly adventures, but it's a pretty good show.
I do. Why I can still enjoy Silent Hill 2 and 3. When you get down to it they're total pieces of shit, but their stories are so well done and so well executed I couldn't care less. Story has the ability to make up for lack of gameplay.
