ITT: We shill games we like that don't/didn't get enough attention
Webm related. Cloudbuilt. It's like an indie mirrors edge. I love it. Overpriced though
This game is fucking excellent and it makes me sad it's dead. Seriously.
It's pretty dead right now on PC. 160 players on my area every time I check.
I mean, I still get games, but it makes me sad because it could be so much more popular. And it deserves to be. It's great.
>Sonic: [Before / After] the Sequel
two classicsonic fangames with A+ OSTs
>Contraption Maker (pic related)
Incredible Machine (same devs) with Steam integration;
goes on sale for up to 90% off (becomes $1.49 USD);
all original copies add a bonus game copy to your steam inventory
fun and fast-paced platformer with leaderboards, though with a wonky difficulty curve and somewhat sensitive controls
EA's botnet client isn't worth it; see
I have somehow accumulated over 140 hours in this game, which is really way too many.
But I love it, and only see it mentioned around here on occasion.
Better get used to it, man.
you really think someone would go through the trouble of creating a fake Kaspersky notice, type out for said notice a lengthy content submission URL request (which happens to be linked to a 'petition' against homophobia that EA sponsored), and then post it on Kaspersky's official boards?
do you work for EA or something?
we had a good little thread about VP the other night, we need more of them.
Listen, I know you wrote that out. It's very funny and you're trying to goad more people into falling for this.
Origin sucks, sure, but false flagging like this only serves to strengthen their claims against you. It's the whole reason all this Anita and Zoe shit has blows up all the time.
Sky Rogue is shaping up nicely for something you can download for nothing.
It's the complete opposite of the unfinished pile of shit that most indie titles are. That alone is a reason to buy it.
>what are these anons talking about it cant be that expensive
>20 fucking dollars
This is another Door Kickers.
Imagine taking Crimson Skies and Mario Kart and putting them in one reasonably decent game. It's not perfect and the online is dead as one would expect for such an obscure title, but it's still pretty fun and at times intense.
Well. Unlike Door Kickers it IS 3D and it does have good graphics, and great art direction. It's not just a glorified flash game.
pirate it and buy it on sale
This time in first person: DeadCore
If you like city builder types go for this instead
Banished gets pretty boring after a couple of hours.
I'm 100% serious.
I don't know if it's doing poorly, but I've seen next to no discussion of the game on /v/. The little discussion I have seen is about memes, but in my 10 or so hours of playing I don't remember having seen any. The comedy is pretty bad overall, but the art style and gameplay are amazing. It's honestly a contender for my personal GOTY, though I don't think it has any chance of beating Tropical Freeze or Bayo 2.
I don't even own an Xbone, I bought the game to play with a friend on his last weekend and ended up loving it.
>stop playing new games
>play these old games and shitty mods for the billionth time!
Fuck off. You're everything that's wrong with PC gaming.
It's pretty good and fun.
Compared to Portal it's less about thinking and puzzle solving and more about skill.
You pretty much know right away how to get to the other side but timing your jumps is the hard part.
I haven't finished it and don't know how long it actually is so I don't know if it's worth the price.
Pirate and try/wait for a sale.
The first one.
Goddamn was this mode fun.
Grab a helicopter and drop bros off. Stand on top of a speeding car while cloaked and then speed jump into someone guns blazing.
Set traps 'n' shit.
It's hard to get into but it's really fun to play, however the maps are always empty
because everyone cloaks.
Cloudbuilt was kind of neat, but it absolutely DID NOT fucking need those horseshit voiceovers between levels that try to construct such a pointless "deep" narrative.
Can't a guy just GOFAST in peace?
supersonic acrobatic rocket-powered battle-cars
best party game.
it is fucking incredible.
fucking hyped about the sequel
It's a pretty old game, but it's aged really well. So well in fact that the multiplier community is still quite active.
If you like it i'd also highly recommend anything else by Bullfrog. They're some of the comfiest games about
It's usually the soundtracks that do it for me. Nothing better than building a utopia for your blessed citizens while soothing music plays in the background
I bought this in a bundle, never heard about it before until I installed it today
was pleasantly surprised, it is a rougelike twitch shooter
I really like Zeboyd Games... games. They remind me of old school JRPGs but with better gameplay
2D platformer based on Norse mythology. Great story which tells lots of little tales about the deaths of heros as Lenneth recruits them for the battle in Valhalla. Excellent combat, amazing music, challenging, 3 endings (bad, good and perfect). Highly recommend a guide if you want to perfect it
Battlezone. A game released in 1998 and was somewhat popular at the time, but now it's virtually unheard of.
Wish I knew how to make WebMs, because I would show off some mean gameplay. Here's some high-level play, but you might want to skip around and watch different parts.
Crysis 3 is the only on-rails shooter I've ever really liked. Gunplay's tight, visuals are undeniably great, weapons have variation, and Psycho a bro. Story is pretty shit but idgaf.
Plus the multiplayer is dope as fuck.
Starsector, really fun top down sort of arcadey space sim. Think mountain blade but in space and with tons of customization options for your individual ships and fleet as a whole.
>tfw nobody remembers Pete for the good days, just his Fable lies
nifty little game, looks and sounds relaxing, but is actually somewhat engaging to play
You can get it and two other games for a dollar, or spend 7.25 and get 5 games plus the Risk of Rain pack, probably the best game on there; I already owned Shadowrun.
Yeah, it's fairly similar though there's a lot more systems to mess around with.
I want to make a childrens deathmatch game. You go around playgrounds, schools, and other children things and use your fingergun to "kill" other players.
You would have a variety of weapons,
Fingerpistols, you can dual wield.
Invisible pump shotgun
but im lazy
The story isn't completely shit though.
The nanosuit backround is really neat.
I agree on the multiplayer bit. I only played for ~30 hours, but it was great fun in that time.
>tied, whoever captures next wins, 1 minute to go
>enemy team grabs our flag
>I manage to get to theirs
>we retrieve ours
>whole enemy team behind me
>enable the max nanosuit I had earned earlier and saved
>mow down 2 dudes with the Hammer pistol
>run back to base as fast as superhumanly possible
>capture the flag with 0.5s to go
That's the only webm I could find, maybe that particular level is like that or the guy has a toaster for a PC
It's fucking good, one of the best fps I've played in the recent years.
Never see anyone talk about this game, the first one is good too but I really like the grittiness this one had. Deserves more praise as a pretty cool open world game.
Gunfights in zero-g and 360° movement. Also some neat mechanics like the ability to turn your suit off, lose all control and sound but become invisible on radars.
Yeah, it's an almost inexplicable amount. I've been through every level multiple times with the different styles. I've even erased my save file a few times to start from scratch again. It's currently the only game in my Steam library that I've got 100% completion on. I don't know what it is, but I just really like it.
Also, Path of Nightmares master race. Gotta milk every point you can out of those guards for high scores.
Heavy Bullets. FPS-roguelike. Good atmosphere and music.
This fucking game, man. It's about a tranny chick fighting to take down illuminati feminists. I haven't played it though it looks pretty cool for a 2d pixel platformer.
Toki Tori 2 is really good. It's a puzzle game framed within a fully explorable world (some may say "Metroidvania" although that's a little misleading since the game lacks proper power-ups and a jump button). The game tells you nothing beyond about a minute of explaining controls, and then leaves you to your devices to explore the world however you like. The game brilliantly teaches its more intricate mechanics to the player by showing or doing rather than telling, and it takes advantage of this to make the player feel like they're gradually learning more and more about how they can interact with the world by themselves. Incredibly good sound design makes the world feel relaxing, cheerful, and a little atmospheric to explore, and the art direction is easy on the eyes and cohesive.
It's probably one of my favorite adventure/puzzle games of all time.
It died because of the DirectX10 requirement at the time. Devs weren't jews, quite the opposite, there was a lot of patches and added content like maps, modes and weapons.
They even had a sequel planned.
But then they've been bought by the Angry Birds creators and they cancelled all their current projects.
>I haven't played it
Yeah ok. You're probably the faggot that keeps spamming the
"so apparently this is a thing" threads
Fuck you and fuck your kikestarter.
Also the art and gameplay look like shit.
Subnautica, I wouldn't recommend to buy it now since it's barely a game just out of the prototyping phase.
But it looks really solid, and knowing the guys who made NS2, I think I can have high expectations.
More people should really talk about D4. Its all the awkwardness and strange fun of DP without the shitty graphics or gameplay. Young has an awesome Boston accent and story looks very promising...
and at this rate, it will never get a season 2...
I'm not really done shilling for games, though, so here we go. Saira's also hella' good. If you don't know who Nifflas is, you better go play some Nifflas games right now. Knytt, Knytt Stories, Within a Deep Forest, they're all good.
Saira, though, is probably my favorite game from him. I love this game so much that I spent hours upon hours putting together a text-commentary for the game just so I could show it to people in a different way. It parses puzzles and platforming - platforming feels good, it's parkour-esque and the jump has a lot of weight to it. The puzzles are all very unique and some of them can be quite difficult. Art direction is stellar, mixing simple 2D shades of color with photos, and the music is wonderfully atmospheric. Game used to cost money, now it's free, you have no excuse not to play the heck out of this.
Oh wait it's already dead. Guess that's what you get for being a challenging FPS these days.
Got this off the halloween sale, and it's pretty fuckin cozy. Not that deep, but still a fun way to kill a few minutes.
Wasteland 2 because it was the fallout I was waiting for.
Star Wolves is fucking great.
I just wish that Missiles weren't so fucking useless. They didn't even try to balance them throughout all three games.
>high damage offset by shit supply for anything but unguided missiles (which never hit anything)
>late-game missiles cost a fortune
>in the first game each missile is like a character in Fire Emblem on the highest difficulty; you've gotta ration that shit
>>reminded in 3rd thanks to free-roam but still in pretty damn short supply
>because of low supply you have to toggle missiles constantly otherwise you'll waste them
>missile specialization tree means you sacrifice piloting (turning-rate + top speed) and gunnery (accuracy + damage)
At the end of the day the only reason to use them is as additional firepower against frigates, motherships and high-profile targets.
So like 80% of the time you're flying through space with a ship that has nothing but Small Guns for general-use weaponry.
(pic is from third game, by the way)
>No progression / unlocks
>No HUD exept for mag counter and map objectives.
>teamplay required and encouraged.
>can run on a toaster.
>regular content updates.
>You can play as terrorists and detonate IEDs with a cellphone.
HURR DURR CALL OF DUTY CLONE
It's Binding of Isaac's high octane brother with a fantastic soundtrack, fast paced gameplay, and a huge selection of characters.
Most of Vlambeer's games are great but this takes the cake for me.
anyone that didnt play this is a complete faggot
best soundtrack all year every year
Sure, it's practically abandonware by now and battlezone1.com distributes it, but Activision still owns the rights to the game. Distribution of the game is still a grey area. The programmer of the game still maintains it and he doesn't allow links to it on his website calling it "warez".
Gunpoint. It's a little on the short side (4-ish hours if you aren't going for 100% completion) but the gameplay and writing is rock solid. Genuinely fun and genuinely funny.
Normal price is $10 which is kinda iffy, but don't hesitate to get it if it drops below $5
Strider 2014 was a really good game, only problem is being too easy even on Hard.
also Mark of the Ninja is a fucking brilliant game.
Stonehearth. Currently running in alpha and controls like ass but otherwise passable. Picked it up for about $10 like around a year ago and still waiting for the roadmap to be completed.
Is like village building/fending off enemies, etc.
Gurumin. It's a action platformer where you play as a loli with a drill to save a bunch of monsters.
There's also unlockable outfits and hats that grant different abilities. On PSP/Vita, and was greenlit for Steam a while back.
Wait, am I gay because I like a Bioware game?
When are you being released?
I want Flowey to talk more trash to me.
I know it's a bit old, but Xenogears.
The first disc is a masterpiece of Japanese RPG game design; the combat system, the story, the character art, the environments, the music--all of them come together so well. The plot is dense and thick with allegory and symbolism; the characters themselves are well fleshed out. The journey lasts around 80 hours, most of which are fucking exquisite examples of great science-fiction storytelling in an interactive medium.
It's bold as hell. It's wonderful. The second disc, however--is kind of a catastrophe.
The story is great throughout, but the game is communicated via long expositions and narrations, interrupted by brief battle sequences. This is probably because funding got gutted after FF8.
Please give it a play. It's a wonderful game and, despite the failing of the second disc, deserves to be played.
I enjoyed Fly'n until the Metal tree.
finding all the flowers in each level there was FUCK ASS
Of course the game has its shit parts, but it gave me emotions.
Gunvalkyrie. It's one of my favorite games of all time, but nobody played it because it came out on the dudebro console. The reviewers and dudebros hated it because they tried to play it like Halo, when it's instead one of the craziest and most stylish third person shooters out there.
Imagine Vanquish where you can fly. Now imagine that in a setting where you have maybe 2 seconds of actual jetpack fuel. So the way to fly is by performing a continuous series of flips and acrobatics to stay in the air, and you can complete every level without ever touching the ground, all while shooting masses of enemies with a lock-on system similar to panzer dragoon.
Oh, and it's by the same guys who made Jet Set Radio. Fucking incredible game.
Shame there's not a single good video of gameplay footage.
This is a great game!
If there's one thing I hate, it's how the gun jump and standing boostjump completely broke the flow of the game.
I'm not saying it's not impressive, it is, but it was much more fun when all the best times were more about going fast as fuck and less about skipping half the levels.
I kinda stopped playing when these tricks became the norm. I'll still come back for the next dlc though.
It was the Swan Song of THQ, which makes me sad. It's an excellent action game with some great mechanical additions to the DMC combat style and I really just enjoyed the hell out of it.
I really wish they hadn't released the prototype.
Underwater games are kind of my favourite thing, and Subnautica looks like quite literally everything I desire in an underwater game.
Then they had to release to barely playable prototype, I want to play it, but I know it will damage my hype for the final release.
>and it's Call of Duty without mechs.
Mechs are an overrated concept entirely, which is part of why this game went nowhere.
I say this as someone who grew up playing gundam, mechwarrior, and armored core games. You have an idea in your head of what they can be, and the gameplay itself usually never fillls the void.
There's quite a few games that pull of mechs well. The problem is titan fall felt more like
Call of Duty feat. Gundams from the Gundams may cry series.
Like the mechs didn't really impact the game at all, they were just there as an afterthought.
>tfw you find out your gambling buddy online was arrested for statutory
>tfw you can't ask him the details
>tfw you don't know why he's not in jail
>tfw your kinda fucking pissed because he's fucking scrawny and ugly and you're a virgin /fit/fag
This. I didn't think I would see a game that deserves to be bought, but this is 3 bucks or something on PSN, and it is amazing. One of those MP games where you can righteously fuck people over if they aren't good.
Can't wait for the sequel either.
If you have a WiiU you should get this off the VC.
Great game that didn't get enough love the first time.
I just hope this sells enough to promote more Souls-like games.
Dota got its own genre, why can't Souls?
Yeah I know the answer, it's a rhetorical question.
What about the A-Train series? Those are games where you build trains and the city takes care of itself, and from there you just get to watch the cities and the trains. One in particular was great for that, A-Train 4 or 5 I think.
The Dog Island is a solid Wii/PS2 game (I've only played the Wii version but the PS2 one shouldn't be much different aside from different controls). You basically play as your choice of giant-headed dog on a quest to re-enact The Land Before Time IV. Has some surprisingly mature moments sprinkled therein but is largely just a calming and comfy game to play. Good soundtrack accentuates the experience and ups the comfiness. I found it through some guy who was streaming good obscure Wii games once upon a time on /v/ several years ago. If you want a comfy dog rescue adventure, then give The Dog Island a shot.
The writing in this game was atrocious but fuck me if I didn't have a great ass time kicking niggas off high into the air and then blowing their brains out. It's too bad that the online got taken down
I don't like PlatinumGames stuff. Their products always feel like plastic bags being violently shaken about by one's arms. They make a lot of noise and might look cool, but you sooner or later realize that they're totally weightless and empty.
It was still fun and I just want to see how others can alternate on the Souls formula.
i was really excited to play this and i thought i'd love it for sure
i bought it today and played like two hours and i fucking hate it. opened a support ticket to get a refund.
felt like a shittier, AA western souls game. It was so slow and clunky and buggy.
every enemy was also "demon guy with a axe or a sword and a shield"
i got to worshipper and just gave up, everything just felt so shitty
Nobody on /v/ likes DQ. I partly blame SE and their lack of marketing for the series.
A little bit each of MadWorld, Vanquish, and W101. I've also watched a good amount of Bayo and Anarchy Reigns if that amounts to anything. Never had a very solid experience with any of them. I know Bayonetta is well spoken of, and the game has a ton of heart in it, so if the one guy I know buys the sequel then I'll give it a try. I have low expectations though, purely based on past experience.
Way better than MvC3, a shame it didnt get the praise it deserved
>got hundreds of hours out of it
>go back and play 8
>it is basically inferior in every way
>ask about it on /v/
>everyone says 8 is better because 9 was too casual
Yeah paladins were super OP but come on. 9 had so much fuckin content it was insanity.
Legend of Grimrock 2
It's got everything. Puzzles, character building, dungeon exploring, open world.
skills aren't limited to a class, so you can try anything you can imagine with it.
Two-handed dexterity mage? It's possible
A party centered around one character transforming into a bear every fight? It's possible
The modding community is just starting out and things are already getting done, enemies from the previous title are being modded in, completely new assets are everywhere.
>deserves to be
I'm not here to shit on opinions but the game lets me down. I'm all for robot mech titan whatever battling but the things just feel so unsatisfying. I don't feel like I'm in an engine of war but rather just in a slightly bigger me that cant run on walls. the on foot gameplay was neat and I'm all about futuristic shooters but nothing really felt like it had a good punch to it.
Pic related, though flawed, is one of my favorite PS2 games. It's just so creative and simple fun. I love all 12 boss fights, and the music and art are incredible. People complain that it's too short, and that it's not a full game. That's really pretty much true, but it doesn't need to be. As it is, it's one of the best unfinished games around.
quick! people are talking about videogames! we can't let this happen!
Destruction engine is the best in the industry and they make sure you get to destroy whatever the fuck you want. Shame about Armageddon, though.
If you own a 360 and still have a gold account it will be free on the 16th. Its also pretty cheap on steam too.
It's been at last-gasp prices on steam. I think I picked it up for 2.50 or something.
I realize EVERY game is fun with friends/drugs, but Guerrilla is perfect for being inebriated with your substance of choice and wrecking buildings for a couple hours.
Honestly yeah. The base game is still amazing and quite long, and the base post game content (the randomized dungeons and sidequests) are still there that can squeeze you out at least 10 more hours, more if you want to grind on different classes.
>2 paladins, beserker/monk, priest
Made most bosses ezmode. Then you'd just switch out one or two of those for a mage/sage when you fought certain legacy bosses.
Whoa I dont recognize that ship
was there a new update?
At least they made heavy armor useful (with which making heavy weapons useful and reliable), while From couldn't do it for 3 games straight and decided to just ditch it in Bloodborn.
