  1. I didn't tell people that they had to do anything. I said "maybe it's best to at least try". I'm not condemning or policing anyone here, I just suggested that it would be better and more constructive to try it. I genuinely don't understand why that's making anyone upset. This is seriously the most ridiculous thing anyone has ever tried to sass me for. You can do whatever you want dude. If you're that worried about my opinion, then please read my username again.
  2. Wow, you sound bitter. Maybe take a break from video game forums if you're going to get upset about someone suggesting that we should talk in detail about video games, yeah?
  3. Read my username and you've answered your own question. But in all seriousness though, why even bother to post in a forum if you don't want to actually discuss things? What's the point of writing a response to a thread like this if you don't have anything to say? Opinions about video games hardly matter anyway, but why even take the time to write something if you have nothing to say?
  4. I've never played Horizon, but I like how OP wrote a decent post about the things they disliked in the game and why, but everyone just says "No, it's good. You're wrong". Even the person with their youtube review channel in their signature isn't trying to refute any of those points. Like guys if you're going to post in a thread like this then it's probably best to at least try to detail why you don't think OP's points are problems with the game, or why you enjoy the game despite it's faults.
  5. Update: I'm running behind again in this event. I had a bad reaction to anti-biotics I was taking for a minor sinus issue and it ended up really messing with my heart. I'm ok now, thankfully there's no lasting damage, but man the last few weeks were not fun. I didn't play games much while I was resting either. I actually got back into neopets of all things and spent a ton of time on there. I guess it was just easier to casually play while I was recovering. At least my virtual pets are fed and dressed all nice for christmas. But yeah, the only progress I have is Games of Thrones at 78%.
  6. Best: .Hack G.U Last Recode- I loved .Hack when I was younger, but I was never able to play all of the games because of the way they were released and how crazy the prices got on the aftermarket. I'm loving this collection so much so far, it's absolutely worth it to see the entire GU series. Crash Bandicoot Collection- I love platformers, I grew up with Crash, and this is a very solid remake even though it has a few physics problems I could do without. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn- It's been a very long time since I've been able to get into an MMO, but I'm loving this. I play it somewhat sporadically but every time I get back into it it steals all of my time for a full month. Rocket League- I'm not usually into multiplayer games, but this is the most fun I've had in an online game in years. Scoring in this game is satisfying beyond belief. (I didn't buy Nier Automata, Yakuza 0, RE7, or Persona 5. These were my favorite games this year, but all of them were gifts from family or donations from people who watch me stream, so I don't think they count for this thread.) Worst: Mecho Tales- Please guys, don't play Mecho Tales. This is hands down the worst game I've played this year. Normally I'm the kind of person who looks into a game a lot before I buy it, but I got this on sale without reading anything. I saw that it was a platformer, looked at the cover art, and I jumped on it. Pure regret. The entire game is an eyesore made of clashing colors and grey blocks. The game is stupidly short, the controls are bad, the areas all look the same, the enemies take forever to kill, the bosses are poor, and the music will kill your ears if you turn it on. Don't just buy this because it has a double platinum. I'm begging you. Game of Thrones- It was free on PS Plus, but I still paid for the subscription so I'm counting it. I don't think I need to say that the game is hideous and boring, everyone knows that already. Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy- I just recently got into dungeon crawlers. I ended up loving the few that I played so I thought i would like this one too. Nope, its awful. This has the most unintuitive menu system I think I've ever seen. This is the first game I've played as an adult where I just felt absolutely lost and had no idea what I was doing. It doesn't help that the entire game is filled with copy/paste mono colored walls and you have to be connected online to read hints just to figure out where to go. I really doubt I'll ever turn it on again to give it another try.
  7. From what I understand, the engine they're working with actually has no physics system. Any time you see an object or character move, it all has to be done by hand. That's a much bigger time commitment and resource drain than most people might suspect. (And that's why the animations in their games look so robotic and awful too.) Also they laid off 25% of the entire company a few months ago. TLDR version is that they're going forward with different technology to make their games and cut a lot of employees because the way they do things was too expensive and low quality.
  8. Not true, Afro Samurai 2 was so poorly rated that the developers apologized for releasing it and forcibly refunded everyone who bought it. PT was a free demo, but this is the first time there's ever been an actual paid game that's been taken down and unable to be re-downloaded.
  9. Has anyone here played Adventure Quest or Mech Quest? I wasn't really interested in this until I found out it was done by the same group. I used to play those games a lot when they came out and I was wondering if this had the same style of humor. Even if the gameplay is mediocre, I would still really like playing a single player game that has the same kind of jokey atmosphere that I loved in Artix games when I was a kid.
  10. Yup, posts like that are exactly why I chose it and I'm glad that people find it funny.
  11. What? It's not even 65 on metacritic, it's 60. That's absolutely "less than stellar" no matter how you look at it. Stellar means outstanding or superb, and the scores this game got are pretty unremarkable. Take into account that most major reviewers tend to grade games on the educational system scale where a 60 is equivalent to a D- and it looks even worse. How in the world is it biased to point out that every professional review for the game was mixed at best when that's 100% the truth? Every single review for the PS4 version is listed under mixed and all of the reviews say that the game is very flawed. The guy writing the article is only pointing out the universal opinion of the critics who wrote about the game.
  12. I loved the halloween event so I'm definitely in for this one too. It's nice to see that it's only 3 or 4 games too because that's really doable even during the holidays. I'm going to use it to clear some easier backlog games. TREAT EVERY DAY LIKE CHRISTMAS!- Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star (If it's too short to count then I can trade it out for something like Indigo Prophecy or maybe Uncharted 2.) THERE'S ROOM FOR EVERYONE ON THE NICE LIST! - Game of Thrones (Should count since you make moral choices.) THE BEST WAY TO SPREAD CHRISTMAS CHEER IS SINGING LOUD FOR ALL TO HEAR!- Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F I can't think of any games off the top of my head where you have to save your dad. I'll have to look into that.
  13. I don't think plateau is the word you're looking for. What we're coming towards now is called diminishing returns. Graphics will keep improving, but we aren't going to see the huge differences between generations that we've seen in the past. What you're going to see in the future is that games will focus more and more on aspects other than graphical fidelity because of how expensive it's becoming to make games. The good news is that this means we'll hopefully see more stylized games in the future along with games that run better. I'm just going to go ahead and quote one of the people from Guerrilla games because he said this very well. Also sorry OP, but there's no way I'm watching a video by Extra Credits. Maybe they've improved since I last watched one in like, 2013, but they were really awful back then and I've still only ever heard people talk about how wrong they are all the time. I don't really feel like potentially getting angry at bad youtube videos right now, maybe later.
  14. They made a decent amount of changes to the system. It sounds like they wanted to streamline all of the games into each other so that you could play them all in a row easily. Upping the EXP means less grinding and a better pace for people trying to play through them. So here's all of the differences that I know of- The PS2 version sends you back to the title screen when you're defeated, but the HD version let's you retry the battle from the start. The battle difficulty is lowered slightly on each retry Your attack power is increased in comparison to the original. You do more damage to enemies than the original, but enemies still do the same amount of damage to you. General rebalances were applied to enemy HP and Charge Speed. Hit Stops during attacks are reduced and you can no longer get stuck in an operation. You can use the same item consecutively. Stun Gauges were added to enemies in Avatar Battles. Skeith's shot bullet speed was increased. The amount of damage to the Flight Gauge and Morale Gauge has been increased. The amount of additional damage during Beast Awakenings has been increased. The rate that weapon proficiency rises has been increased. Status ailment probability was lowered for the player but you still have the same chance of inflicting ailments on enemies. EXP has been boosted.
  15. You should be able to cycle through the characters that you've unlocked any time by pressing or on the d-pad.
