>>3050 >OP image >third post Eh, not that much milch m8 >Mortal Kombat is kinda bad Really? I'm not a gamer but when I played th arcade game and years alter the online version it was pretty fun for me.
>>3051 The block button in MK creates a distinct feel which is imo inferior to normal block mechanics. It dumbs down defense too much and by consequence offense gets powercreeped in order to deal with it. For example, projectiles in MK are kinda degenerate and a majority of the cast have instant teleports, super fast overheads or teleport overheads and also the inputs have been simplified to the point nobody ever drops anything even at the beginner level, removing tension in the process. I can appreciate the series being both a parody and a homage to cheesy 60s kung-fu films nevertheless, even though X and 11 are pure hollywood schlock. With 9 they tried to amend both hollywood and kung fu but the end result is kinda weird in the end, still my favorite nĂ¼-kombat. rewrote this because it was nearly unreadable
>>3158 Huh, ok, that's reasonable. I usually didn't mind those things so I enjoyed the games regardless. Also I find the special-kills (brutalities/fatalities) by the newer characters were cool in the newer Kombats (such as the predator and xenomorph.

>>607 skullgirls is great and they did a really good job with some of the mechanics and character designs, or rather how each of their gameplay styles are designed (I really like how they designed grapplers like beowulf and cerebella). too bad their one chance at a revival got screwed over with EVO online getting canceled. >>370 umvc3/mvc3 had some dumb shit for sure and definitely could have used some patches but it was great all around. kinda of ironic about the patches since mvc3 was popular for a long time and got next to nothing while mvci got regular patches till they cut support for the game due to low interest/disney leaving the game to die.

>>3386 Yup, they have way better pacing.
>>3395 "No!"
>>3313 Lol then is why everyone so hyped about Luigi being found if it's only in an old beta? It was common knowledge that a co-op mode was scrapped so of course a Luigi model would've been designed at some point
>>3408 there is an official model of a SM64 Luigi now, which was thought to be something that no longer existed Also the whole L is real thing, and right before this released there was that SM64 iceberg meme which likely just coincidentally happened right before this which talked about it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qK4L4wR3-pU

what does bunkerchan think of the Freespace series, meaning descent freespace 1 & 2 plus the expansion silent threat for the original.

Freespace 2, and its open source version remains to this day the crowning achievement of the "Space Sim" genre which it has never really topped, despite having come out over 20 years ago

the storyline is essentially a less personalized version of mass effect, or more accurately mass effect is ripping off descent freespace since it came out like 10 years later. Dead space also has similar lovecraftian themes
2 posts and 1 image omitted.
be sure to check out the freespace 2 open source version as well (requires a copy of the original to play though). After FS2 the genre basically died and the studio went backrupt so they released the source code for free.

The fan community ended up updating the game engine with modern graphics and their own custom campaigns.

Both are space games but freespace is much more story/capmaign oriented. It had a very extensive single player campaign as well as multi player (one of the first modern games in that it had voice chat and a map/scenario editor that came with the game).

I never played freelancer but I think its like another 'Elite' clone?, you can wander around the galaxy like han solo?

Freespace OTOH is definitively in the 'military science fiction' genre

the soundtrack is part ambient part electronic in the style of 80s/90s scifi-techno.

The music, the combat system, the storyline all really add to the atmosphere.

You can get the original game and the sequel for $10 on GOG, sometimes they go on sale for $5
While I know this thread is basically dead (despite being way younger than the Joker thread) I just wanted to bring attention to it, because its a frankly interesting space adventure game similar to Orion Star.

Oh, so the mods moved it here. Okie dokie.
>>3270 eh, while Wing Commander was nice and paved the way for Freespace, it was solidly beaten at it's own game by XWing and TIE fighter Freespace still holds the crown

Is this literally the most based game apart from really specialist kind ones like Kremlin Games in the last few years?

>>3026 Yes, it kind of is when laid out like that, but the game, at least to me, managed to make a surprising amount of sense, as the setting is surprisingly self-consistent about its insanity.

>>1515 Do yourself a favour and play Fallen London and Sunless Seas. Skies is missing a lot of the atmosphere and soul that Seas had perfect (with a few exceptions such as the Blue Kingdom). >while doing more with the story Strong disagree here, Seas is pretty much purely driven by story and all of its mechanics feed back into enhancing that story. Skies loses a lot by sacrificing the desperation of the gameplay for something easier. Seas was also primarily driven by Alexis Kennedy who is far better at having a thematically consistent and interesting world. On the political side of things Seas is far less on the nose with its politics and is a better political work for it. Not that Skies is a bad game, Failbetter are still great at narrative games, its just missing that wonderful atmosphere and feel that Seas had. >>3022 Vienna didn't have a communist revolution, it is on the cusp of a revolution that will usher in the Liberation of Night which is about the destruction of the laws of physics. Britain never conquers anything in the Neath either, the Masters of the Bazaar are firmly in control of London and the attempt to invade hell fails because they couldn't fight parabolans.

>>3054 Oh man, thanks a lot for posting that, saw it about a week ago and it reminded me to go back and play through Cultist Simulator now that it is updated. In all honesty I am pretty torn on the game. On the one hand I really love it, but on the other - it can be really freaking annoying at times. Since I can't get the cracked version with DLC's to work, I completed only the definitive one by doing Power victory into Apostle Aestuant victory, but even that took way too long, and this is coming from a player that already cracked the bullshit that the game throws at you. Even then, it was still stressful at times, knowing I could loose many hours of progress because I skipped paint day. The Apostle Aestuant victory at time feels like it is taking the piss in all honesty. Having really unclear instructions is kind of cool I guess, but the decision to put one of the conditions for victory on a timed card that you can only get 2-3 times max while also needing another timed card with a lifetime so small that you can only get it after the one which is limited in quantity is pretty fucking sadistic game design. Also I'd argue they screwed up with the rival Long. At best he was annoying and quite literally works like a gnat bite - it gets worse the more you scratch it. I decided to ignore them, which is sad, as I was interested in what would happen if I got to kill them, but I didn't dare risk the run. Not to mention how grindy it is, especially if you die and have to restart your entire follower, book and spell collection. At least I am a WoW player AND I played CitK where I had to flip all of the Third World red on many occasions, so at least I have some resilience built up for this type of shit, but I can really see how it would be a massive turn-off. It made me rage quit a few times back when the game was fresh, as deaths were more common for a newbie. However, positives outweigh the annoyances. The story is phenomenal in my opinion. Best part is that it makes you feel like you yourself become an expert on all of this esoteric knowledge - you realize what Names, Longs and Hours actually are, you start to understand the rivalries between them, synonymous names and so on. The only other time I felt something similar was in Sunless Skies when you slowly start to understand how the setting works, and when I was really into Star Wars bootlegs, slowly starting to perfectly understand not only what the garbled gibberish words mean, but also how they came to be translated that way. Anyway, its not only the presentation of the story, but the setting it self that is fascinating, with an interesting take on the Pantheon trope and a good use of the 1930's historic moment as a backdrop to the games events, which seems to only be stronger in the Exile DLC, that I sadly can't play. The writing is, well, good, solid, no complaints. Actually, this might be somewhat of a non sequitur, but the romance writing is great, even though the innuendos and descriptions never even cross softcore, and has, let's just say, proven to be great material for me. Also, while I ragged on the gameplay before, it is really great in certain aspects. It is cool to discover things for the first time, and even though I would consider myself a "veteran", it is still managing to surprise me at times with things I can do. Also, the reward loop of gathering lore and being rewarded by getting to read occult scraps from it to expand your own knowledge of the setting is really good, though doesn't quite work in repeated playthroughs. I guess one shame is that there are quite a few wasted things. For instance certain principles, as I just couldn't find a use for them, I don't think I have ever used Edge or Winter ever, and Knock I only used for one or two spells and nothing more. Same goes for Heart and Moth, but I know these are needed for the Dancer DLC. Perhaps this criticism is misplaced and the Priest and Medium use the other three, but as it stands baseline, it is sad that there are no real uses for these lore aspects. Also some rites for spells are downright useless as they sacrifice things you'd never want to give away. Would be interesting if certain spells required certain rites as well. In conclusion, a very good game with some nagging flaws. Would recommend to all who liked Sunless series, like esoteric fiction or like challenging puzzle games.

The only thing you can do is work hard and survive in this world of scarcity. >You wonder why it's not possible to just go back to your old life, but then again maybe it would have been better if you had died during the war. It was a very dangerous time when people were dying left and right. >You wonder if lower stage capitalism is possible in some form or if it's always the case that the only way to go is directly from a war-torn feudal society. You imagine that it would be much easier to go back to when slavery was still legal. >You don't accept this conclusion as you want to achieve full comminism as soon as possible. You don't know how long you have left to live, but you're going to use it to fight the powers that be. >You fight the powers that be by doing your job. You're just a cog in the machine, but you feel a great sense of satisfaction knowing that you're part of the problem, the system that exploits and subjugates you. You start a communist party because you believe that it's the only way to go, but then you find out that there's already a communist party. You were so engrossed in your studies that you failed to notice this tiny little sect. >You join the communist party, but never get a chance to use it. The member of the other party kill you in a surprise attack when you least expect it. >You come back to life and find that the system still hasn't changed. The working class still doesn't have enough to survive while the rich continue to get richer. This isn't what you fought for, but what can you do? >You start the revolution all over again and when you're done with that you go back to fighting the rich. It's never ending, but then revolutions always are. >You gulag the rich until you're old and then die in your sleep. >You come back to life as Stalin, but you don't want to be Stalin, you want to be free. You find it ironic that the only way to be truly free is to destroy the system that enslaves you in the first place. >You destroy the system that enslaves you and the working class. You bring down the capitalist state and create a workers' state. <The revolution has succeeded!
