Hope y'all have been enjoying the steam sale, I started playing MHStories 2 and despite being so weeby and dorky as hell (I could try the dub I guess), the game itself is quite fun and a need change of pace from playing ER since February


Is AKIRA not one of the best mangas, let alone stories, ever conceived? One of the few works which every major character is incredibly human, full of flaws. Colonel Shikishima incredibly endearing despite being responsible for akira. Best cyberpunk ever.


the first castlevania advance game is great, love the whip as a main weapon. Notice the lvl up stat growths are not random, it seems, like they were in SOTN. havent tried the others yet, but will soon. ER can wait


fuck off gov't music thread here


open world commander keen. It's almost elden ring, actually, if you were to do an openworld remake of Goodbye Galaxy, and you have a pogo stick and blaster to explore with, and the levels are just legacy dungeons. IT ALREADY HAS SLUGS


Really fucking hate the US Oligarchy something real


nothing quite like testing out the new UPS i purchased today during a thunderstorm that led to short power losses. There was even hail. STill hearing thunder, the but wind and majority of rain seems to have passed

Perhaps I jumped the gun, but I took the day off in anticipation of increased workload due to an employee leaving, but we hired a new person yesterday! Great candidate, too, she is very promising and professional. Current status: chill


Y'all are hamperingy efforts to use dall-e, keeps saying there's too much traffic


There's a kinda dis track about 50 cent by GZA called "Paper Plates" that features the term nutville as meaning sack, testes or balls, and I love it; it's used derisively against 50 cent, as he was "still in nutville" when gza's career rose.


gotta say im all for 3rd person stealth platformers starting cute and/or furry animals; that should be a whole genre that's saturating the market, and im sad it isn't


just a reminder to everyone that Rush Limbaugh is still dead


would anyone play a Battle Royale style game, set in The Lands Between, that randomly forces all the players to one of the colosseums on the map as the fog of death shrinks? I could probably vibe w/ that, no fast travel, everyone is a phantom, lvl limits


man it feels good to sing along to this banger


Sheeet, the wife's gone for a few days, off to see her bestie. I'm gonna use the time to decorate and set up our game room. Any opposition to my decisions will be met with a "well ya shoulda been here..." Will let y'all know how that pans out on monday


lol i just remembered downloading midi files to listen to video game music


not to defend Ubisoft, but that whole "Escape from Notre Dame on fire" was not on Ubisoft, they were contracted to make that VR experience by a film production company making a big budget documentary about it. Apparently you play as firefighter.


Nostalgia is a very powerful tool. If I wanted to get/make a retro PC, what are some considerations? I almost bought one, at an estate sale on Sunday, but: Mobo posted! Great! Hdd failed. So I did not purchase, but I can't stop thinking about it.


Finaly moving on up in ER. Opening up more of the map, finally, after being stuck on Altus Plateau for some time. Map spoilers in the comments


hows my qtoid fam doing? I miss skateboarding, but im still playing Elden Ring. Nothing is really stopping me from skating except maybe Elden Ring. And i moved to a new apartment with more foot traffic in general so i cant feel as secluded as i used to.


First time playing, shits gonna get real


I want Berserk! but with Cazca being the one found under the tree of corpses; basically switching the roles between Cazca and Guts, and Cazca has to save Guts at one point cuz a fish armored man kicked him in the nuts.


will it ever end? 128 hours and still nowhere near the end in ER. yet im still having fun? i keep going back to old areas and finding little bits i missed before or outright ignored. Fungus, overtake me! Let thine spores penetrate my every pore!


Took a break from the Elden Ring grind to get back into the Hades grind, I forgot how satisfying that game feels to play. Just the right amount of frames and sound to make the action impactful


Fucking ay the world needs to go to a 4 day workweek with no paycut from a 5 day, and make that shit mandatory

My favorite games meld music, art, and gameplay to enhance one another, elevating the product to something beyond mere "consumption"; it's an experience. Not everyone will like them, but they do gain a passionate following. Sorry if anything I said sounded pretentious, I am trying to be sincere. I love music and art, I've dabble in both for over 20 years now, so I appreciate games that put love into their art assets, animations, character design, level design, music, sound design, storytelling, and voice acting, even if the gameplay is simplistic (as long as it's fun!). These games also tend to feel nice- the control has a certain snap to it, enhanced by the visual and audio cues. This list may be biased towards my adolescence and childhood favorites from the SNES and N64/PSX days, so bare with me: you will see a lot of retro favorites. If your favorite is not on the list, it's probably because i didn't play it as a child/adolescent, or as an adult, for that matter.

In a somewhat random order:
Chrono Trigger
Super Smash Bros Melee
World of Warcraft (Classic/Vanilla)
Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past
Conker's Bad Fur Day
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
Dark Souls
Demon's Souls
Banjo Kazooie
Katamari Damacy
Shadows of the Colossus
Commander Keen: Goodbye Galaxy
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Super Meat Boy
Donkey Kong Country
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Human Fall Flat
World of Horror
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
Super Mario Odyssey
Metal Slug 3
Tokyo Jungle (an odd one, for sure, but i love it so)
