What's a game you want that doesn't exist?

captain blood combined with tyrian combined with wing commander combined with alpha storm combined with system shock
>>153 An arcade music game like IIDX with a LED backlit 512 key isomorphic (hexagonal grid) key layout that overlays a reflection of your hands on the the keyboard over top a reflection of a 240Hz monitor using optics to create a situation where you can see where your hands are in relation to the oncoming notes.
>>401 I'd rather they make a Mania 2, I don't really like Superstars much
One more borderlands but made by people who made 1st 2nd and the pre sequel. Bl 3 was a disappointment. 3$ westoid comics wrapped up in the skin of what used to be one of the best games ever.
>>153 remake of Michael Jackson's Moonwalker (the genesis plataformer) with rythm/dungeon crawler gameplay (crypt of the necrodancer style)

Comfy obscure games thread. Discuss comfy games that are not well known. Anything is fair game. I'll start https://archive.org/details/junko-v-1.02 (Really cute and well made for a game jam game free too!) GiFTPiA (Really relaxing gamecube game nobody every discusses https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3p7XhdXlBQ)
>>449 Fear and hunger. It is very comfy. Trust me
there's this game on the ps2 that looks really cute. it's called Poinie's Poin; it's japan-only, but has a full english localization with english voices and everything, which is really odd, but it reminds me a lot of a 90s cartoon. i wish it got released here or something. https://youtu.be/kj6fBzDVLmo?feature=shared there's also this skating game on the gamecube called Go Go Hypergrind published by atlus...but made in cooperation with spumco (the animation studio that made ren and stimpy) it only ever released in north america despite being developed in japan, so it's really expensive and hard to find now...which sucks, because once upon a time, it was dirt cheap, i could've bought it at one point i love the music in this game, though https://youtu.be/Z7PRgj1fURU?feature=shared >>449 i'll have to watch that giftpia video in full sometime, it looks really interesting, but skimming through it, i don't think i got a good idea of what the game is like... >>451 if i never have to see another person recommend this exact game, it'll still be too soon...

I like to dig around sites like to old YoYoGames Sandbox's archives or The Daily Click for small, unknown indie games. This one game I keep coming back to every odd month or so though, it's called Princess Fantasy Catventure. https://web.archive.org/web/20160330003622/http://sandbox.yoyogames.com/games/205669
Core of Innocence! It's a metroidvania with a dress up system (meaning you can see your character's boobs if you remove your shirt and bra). https://archive.org/details/co-i_20221118
Oh that's pretty cool

let's have visual novel thread. >how many VN have you read? >what is the best VN you've read? >what is the worst? I've only read a bit of thee house in fata morgana haha
I'm playing Bible Black right now. Its better than I imagined based on what I know from the OVA. The plot is absurd like who would keep a ritual room in the school basement without cleaning up the mess? But so far its been fun. The occult references were nice. Saeki has a surprisingly accurate collection of books. Some of the artwork and sprites haven't aged well and the fetish content threw me off.
>what is the worst? The best western """VN""" is worse than the worst Japanese VN. Also a VN becomes 80% worse when reading a translation (compared to manga which is 50% and anime which is 30%), aside from the fact that only a small portion of VNs got translated, so if you're serious about VNs you have to start learning Japanese.

What are your experiences with this game and what do you think of it? And if you haven't played it, what the fuck are you doing with your life? Go and play it!

>>694 >i was almost curious if anyone here really played JRPGs, despite literally, indisputably being otaku culture, it feels like nobody on these imageboards really does, or at least they never really talk about them. I play a lot of them and enjoy them very much, but I admit that they can be very difficult to get into for certain types of people, especially if you aren't immediately enthralled by the concept of turn-based fights and extremely long stories. I would definitely like to see more JRPG discussion though. >i played persona 3 portable ages ago, and of course i really liked it, because persona is cool, but (and this is admittedly very petty of me), i feel like the games are getting too popular recently, so i've been getting burnt out. like, i don't think there's any one opinion anyone could have about any of the games that someone has not already had. I don't really know about that, but I will say that the recent remake looks garbage. I haven't even played it but the art style alone is bad enough to make me avoid it for good on top of the fact that it's overpriced and they actually took The Answer from the main game and charged an obscene price for it as DLC.
>>695 >I don't really know about that, but I will say that the recent remake looks garbage. I haven't even played it but the art style alone is bad enough to make me avoid it for good on top of the fact that it's overpriced and they actually took The Answer from the main game and charged an obscene price for it as DLC. yeah this is exactly how i feel. persona 3 really didn't need a remake--did everyone already forget that they already put portable onto modern platforms (and not FES for some reason)?! the more i think about reload, the more and more upset i get...
>>696 I can only guess they didn't port FES because they wanted an obviously worse version of the game to be the "rough and outdated" original and for Reload to "surpass" it with modern graphics. If you compare the original with Reload though it becomes clear that the original is better visually speaking as well as in gameplay. In fact, the changes to the gameplay by adding party control and other additions brought over from P5 is what really makes me not want to play it. There's a reason why you can't control your party or use another character's skills in the menu like you would use your own or why you can't change a character's status without directly going up to them and issuing a command. It's meant to make each character feel like their own separate entity that you talk to and in a game specifically about bonds with other characters, that's beyond essential. All this obsession with blindly "smoothing over" a game to make it easier to play at the expense of immersion like in P3 is what makes most modern games so forgettable.
>>693 I did a playthrough of the portable version like ~5 years ago, and well the game certainly did an impression on me despite the repetitive but not difficult gameplay, i liked the story since i wasn't expecting something like that at the time.
I loved this game. The only downside is how grindy it is and the fact it can get repetitive and really drag on which deters me from replaying it as an adult. I've heard the PSP version fixed some of these issues but at the expense of the cutscenes and some of the 3D environments, which I just can't do without.

Is it worth it collecting physical copies anymore? Anonymous 06/08/2023 (Thu) 23:23:29 Id:cad194 No. 44 [Reply]
Everything is saved digitally. Unless every single computer were to randomly explode, these digital copies aren't going away. I still like to collect physical game copies, but mostly older titles. There's no point to this either since emulation has progressively been getting better. The only reason I get physical copies now is just because they they look cool on a shelf, although a lot of newer covers don't really look as cool.

black souls 1 & 2 Anonymous 09/14/2023 (Thu) 16:42:10 Id:0a7825 No. 352 [Reply]
the black souls series is a video game where you play as a protagonist in a world inspired bu fairy tales. made with rpg maker, the game plays lile a 'soulslike' but turn by turn gameplay. I played the first game and like 10 of the second game, but played the first game more. I wanted to know if beating hansel and gretel in the witch's house (the first hansel and gretel you see in the begining of the game) is something easy or did I make an achievment I've made. also beside the porn is the game really worth it? the game doesn't help you understand what are object about so I get a bit lost at the begining.
I'm not the biggest fan of RPG Maker gamers, but this one looks interesting. I'll take note of it

Unreleased Games That You Want to Play Anonymous 06/03/2023 (Sat) 23:09:19 Id:805c99 No. 38 [Reply]
ITT Video/Computer games that were either completed but unreleased or MOSTLY completed but unreleased that you want to play. Picrel is not technically a game but an expansion for Ultima VIII called "The Lost Vale" which was completed and ready to go but shelved due to poor sales of Ultima VIII.
it was Star Fox 2 until it was released, other than that, i haven't really cared for most of them. >Picrel is not technically a game but an expansion for Ultima VIII called "The Lost Vale" which was completed and ready to go but shelved due to poor sales of Ultima VIII. seems interesting, this lead me to watch a video about it. very unfortunate the developer's hard work was shelved.
i'm not a huge final fantasy person, but recently i've been looking at the older trailers for Versus 13, and i do really wish that it either released, or that Nomura will be able to realize his vision for it someday (it looks like he's trying to turn Kingdom Hearts into Versus 13, which i honestly kind of respect lol) this game's setting and atmosphere looked really unique, there still aren't a lot of JRPGs that have a contemporary/modern setting, let alone one that blends aspects of both modern and fantasy also it just looks cool https://youtu.be/b6At_bb1PNU?feature=shared
I'm so mad they didn't release the Ultima VIII expansion. It was even finished :(

If not, it's free on Epic. Not a big fan of plus edition since it's just fanservice intended but 10 bucks is 10 bucks, you know.
