Planning my PC upgrade so I can ditch my FX-8370. Interested in that game now and hopefully emulating BoTW soon.
>>388029>Emulating Breath of The Wild
Basically this, but also have Yakuza 0. And need Berserk.>>388033
And this too
Yeah, it's bretty gud. That was one of those games that NISA knew were releasing too close to E3 for most press to care, so they sent review code to literally everyone on their press list. It's kinda funny.>>388032
Can't say too much about Tales, but Nioh was really good - though it needed more enemy variety near the end - Breath of the Wild was fun when I tried it at E3, and so far NieR is definitely a Yoko Taro game.>>388041
Yakuza 0 is the shit.
Cemu kind of works
Admittedly I haven't played it much yet. A friend's borrowing it while I'm (struggling) to keep up with this quarter's release schedule.
Fucking Nioh has sucked over 70 hours out of me. Still not really done, still 2 trophies away from the platinum - and then there's NG+.
I'm so hype >>388114>>388115>actually doing things
What a nerd
Let's review some XCOM 2 DLC, kids.
Shen's Last Gift is decent if you do the mission, you get a robbit and shoot some guys then you have a lvl 2-3 robit that you can take on adventures with you.
However all armour and weapon upgrades for the robutts are separate from other weapon and armour upgrades, they still require the same amount of research (heavy weapons), but when you have one (maybe two) robutts spending 200 supplies on an armour upgrade, and then another 200 on a better weapon is a stretch. Especially on Commander or (God save you) Impossible because there every supply counts, especially if you play with difficulty modifying mods.
You can have a robutt that acts as high cover, and can shred, but has no aim, and can't use cover. But it'll cost you at least one class, and I guess that's Grenadier because you'll lose the fewest abilities. It isn't going to be Ranger, because that's your backbone. It won't be Sharpshooter because it's the fucking Sharpshooter; the invulnerable killing machine that clutches all of your games. It can't really be Specialist because campaign necessary and super useless, I guess you could swap them for your brain-dead robutt hackers but do you really want to swap your 40% chance to get 50% reduced scan times, for a 10% chance? Is another heavy weapon that important to you?
If the upgrades were cheaper, and the upgrades more flavourful (fixed with mods) then they'd be super great, cus they are probably my favourite class at least. Robutts running through walls, spraying an HMG, and fisting berserkers is fahn. What is not fahn is having to paralell upgrade a character who has no functionality that your standard troops don't. Drop a heavy suit on a sniper and give them a rocket launcher and BAM, you now have half the functionality of a robutt for half the price, presuming you didn't get your robutt quest reward.
And there's the problem, if you want to play with the DLC WITHOUT using a dumb half-baked story mission, and just use robutts, then not only do you have to research them in the proving grounds, you have to also pay for one (125 supplies and TWO whooping elerium cores), and THEN upgrade them because at this point you probably have predator armour and moving into plasma weaponry. No one has the resources to do that! The units are fun, but not ideally balanced, and don't really give you a real value for the immense cost of manufacturing them. Not to mention they start off as squaddies so late-game getting a new one is purely a flavour choice.
So to sum it up robutts are really cool, and they are fun to use. They add a few more flavour choices to the game, and that's great. But they're expensive to make, don't fit a non-robutt focused playstyle, don't add anything distinctly new to the game, and late-game are utterly outclassed by other classes. No PCS, no weapon mods, no ammunition. So basically go and buy this DLC cus it's the best one and you should love and worship your robutt overlords. Mine have a giant dripping cock aesthetic mod.
9\10 it's not Alien Hunters so it's automatically the best gameplay DLC of the game BECAUSE THERE AREN'T ANY MORE!

>Got NieR: Automata Ending A
1. I need to buy this game's soundtrack
2. This game is fucking amazing holy shit
It's a smart idea on their part. Make walking itself a gamble and players will keep grinding away trying catch em all.
>>388342>the bottom line strikes again
First, "there" is an unknown location. It could be anywhere in my neighborhood. Second, its cold and its nighttime. Unless I see something very rare on my tracker, I'm not leaving my house right now
Also it despawned
Wasn't there already an Avatar movie tie-in and it sucked?
If it lets me play as a human so I can go rambo and explore those floating mountains and fucking coral reef jungles and tame that fucking trex bird then i'll play it.
Because greedy corporations.
I finally managed to take over a gym. Two gyms, actually. I mean I had to use several revives afterwards, but still.
Fell for the Gen8/PS4 meme too huh?
I dont know why I just bought one too.
I don't know what to do. I realize I only wanted to play the Godzilla fanservice game….
Same reason Nidoqueen has tits: so we know its female(?)
That's why I put the question mark. Everyone refers to her/it with female pronouns anyway
If a robot was created capable of independent thought, perception, ethics, morals and a natural ability to adapt and grow their personality from outside influences and it created a more masculine persona… And it had breasts, would Detective call it male, female or still just a robutt.
Such a sad old man.
And jesus me, slow the fuck down with the response time.
Were if he had to face hostility and had to fight to protect another, lose and accept all his failures and successes in his life before he died would he jump to being a full fledged man?>>388594
Don't you insult more people more often now, Mercy?
I know right?
Want me to dump my XV pictures? Plenty of good ones.
Your social media account.
Dumping mine now.
I've been playing my Switch for a cool minute now - it's pretty dope.
Jeremy, you can have the anti-tank rockets and the EMP mines.
Hubert, you can get the sniper rifle.
Hans, you're our supply specialist so keep them going out there.
And M'bile you can wear this 20kg body armour and use the revive tool, okay? Just run out into the fire and get out guys up-
Or get every sucker out there by making an MMO AC game with a huge marketing campaign and then releasing a barely functional, buggy, glitchy game and never do anything about it.

Overwatch and Animal Crossing
Wow what a shock someone who doesn't play an infamously difficult game is bad at it I better have an actual emotional response to this.
>Hand someone an unfamiliar instrument and expect advanced technical skill>They are novice at best>HE HE YOU LACK OF PROFICIENCY IN MY PROFICIENT FIELD IS AMUSING TO ME
Nigga she's playing a game she's never played before. Most games with a sword are hack and slash games that promote charging in headfirst without thinking. It's not necessarily a hard game but it is a skill that people generally don't just start with.
put me in the screencap
But my internet friends….
>Hand dog control to Dark Souls 3
>Finished the game
Oh shit, I got the top doge.
Ruined your save though.
What a strange Overwatch UI.
Naw, I saw everything.
Isn't ALL of the hate based on the facial glitches though? And the glitches in general?
Gameplay is janky, story is stupid, everyone is unlikable.
If we're going down the Biodrone route then the white haired lady is straight and that scruffled someone's ruffles.
You know what would be a cool romance route? Like, really good? A character which is totes fuckable, maybe female who is only romanceable by males, and your female or transqueer character can romance them. If you do they will politely decline, if you press it over the course of the game they will keep politely declining but get irritated. Until in the second act where they will flat out tell you to piss off and respect that their sexuality is their business and they choose who they want to have sex with. Then they call you a creepy stalker prick for trying to pressure them into sex.
You know, so the creepy people from the internet go "VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN????" because they are too dumb to understand that demanding that every character caters to their preference is fundamentally wrong. Like a cowboy demanding the Mexican bar maid to have sex with them but she doesn't want to, only that today it's a pink haired skinny fat guy who identifies as a woman online and "en femme" to their friends that demands someone like them sexually.
Please now imagine your favourite attempted rape scene from a movie, you know when the guy holds their arm and gets slapped or something, only with this 21st century framing. Isn't it somehow even worse?
i want romance routes where you can just have an ugly character or you're the wrong race or hair colour and they wont romance you
thatd be fun
i want to play alt-right videogames
Personally I believe it's too easy and the heal items are too OP.
I tried Hard difficulty, I died on the first stage after failing to dodge the first boss's sweep attack, but then after that health isn't an issue as long as you're 4 levels above everything.>>389447
There's retarded and then there's experiencing M. Night Shamyllammy-tier terrible.
Drakengard 3's prologue is set in 999 A.D. and the main game takes place in 1000 A.D. in another dimension
Drakengard 1 takes place in 2000 A.D. in the same dimension as the previous one with the final boss of route E the true, canon route that can only be achieved through beating the game four previous times, as in all yoko taro games, takes place In our dimension.
Nier has a prologue with takes place in 2052 but then main story takes place centuries later.
There's also Drakengard 2, but that's the sequel to ending A and is considered shit.
I am in it for the sick keks and dank lols, I don't actually care. These are the same people that say "Sex is the consummation and final tier of a relationship." like that makes any fucking sense to anyone above 16.
I just want tumblrites to realise they're basically 40s husbands in bad dramas.
>>389454>Sex is the consummation and final tier of a relationship.
Hey Ben, how's this one make you feel?
Isn't it nice to make sex so special?
Isn't it nice to have dreams?
does that mean you were never in a relationship?
Remember when you had sex and a little confetti ball popped over your head and you were handed a trophy and then nothing eventful ever happened again? That's the experience Bioware writers had.>>389460
Stop PROJECTING, you sexual dork! I know you wrote an article on the Bioware forums about how upset you were you couldn't sex Samara!
What the hell does this mean? Do you mean wizards who shoot fireballs and shit? Because that's not what Tolkien wizards do, and is what wizards do in basically everything that isn't written by Tolkien. And also, Gandalf dual wielded his staff and a big fucking sword, so even the little bit of information you did give is contradictory.
That has nothing to do with your retarded idea of what pre-Tolkein wizard means.
Point is that bdo wizards aren't some old version of wizards that's been overrun by something else, it's the most generic hack and slash wizard. And it's actually pretty similar to Gandalf considering he would go full nuke if necessary and as Velvet mentioned Gandalf did the whole sword/staff thing regularly.
>Romance routes in vidya
Only mass effect 1 was fun because I like cluelessly let Kaiden get way too far on his route with me before friendzoning him, going for the blue girl, and then asking his pathetic lovesick ass oh honey could you stay with that nuke, do it for meeee *pout.*
All the other bioware romance is just garbo waifu sim.>>389501>Has lots of big opinions on degeneracy>Suggests theft
Sneaky chink doing what comes naturally or genuine criminal scum? You be the judge!
>>389518>All the other bioware romance is just garbo waifu sim.
You take that back, Garrus is a perfect husbando
Just wait until he's ready to calibrate you~
1. I talk to him because I respect him
2.I have yet to discuss the dried up left over shit from ME3
Well I'm enjoying it. ME3 was good aside from the ending. Andromeda is over 600 years after the Shepard Trilogy though. So that ending has no effect on the story.>>389556
Oh no, some glitches stretched throughout the game and questionable mouth animations, how awful.
Horrible animation all around is not a glitch, awful script writing is not a glitch. Its a huge title they've been working on for years and the animation is way worse than the first 2 ME games. Theres no excuse.
Well there actually is, they lost all their good people and >EA, but theres no reason to defend them for releasing a steaming hot turd.
Didn't you excuse Automata's abysmal shitty writing as just being the typical work of Yoko Taro? What matters most is ultimately the gameplay over anything else. I find it hard to believe Mass Effect would fuck up as a TPS. But it being current EA with using a fucked up development cycle I wouldn't doubt there's a lot of gamebreaking glitches and exploits already.
Hell, from what I know a lot of people put ME3 as having the best gameplay out of the trilogy, so despite the backlash over the lazy ending people still enjoyed the actual game.
So do the people apparently>>389567
This isn't typical of old Bioware though, it is typical of new Bioware but nobody likes new Bioware.
I was actually considering getting it until all this came out.
A lot of people also hated the gameplay in ME3, and ME2. I was fine with the game up until the pic of Tali was just a fucking stock image and the endings were kind of a slap in the face. I'd still rather play it than the new one.
Even the SJWs they were pandering to aren't liking the game, they really screwed the pooch. Its funny though so I'm enjoying shitshow.
You can't really go around say expect shit from one guy and not from the other when they're both asking the same starter price. As far merits go they both have some serious, boring ass flaws that hamper the total experience. Andromeda just has it more significantly placed.
I doubt the party that hates the gameplay for 2 and 3 is bigger than the party that enjoyed or was okay with the gameplay of 2-3. A lot of love for the ME3 multiplayer apparently.
>>389576>I was fine with the game up until the pic of Tali was just a fucking stock image
lmao I forgot about this
character design is hard
What are the flaws? Nier/Drakengard has always been pants on head retarded and convoluted as shit. Mass Effect used to be a pretty good series. Stop trying to compare apples to oranges. >lol you like this game and its also a game so you shouldnt make fun of this other game that the entire world is also making fun of
You aren't even playing it why do you care?>>389581
Apparently they took some of the character art for journal entries or whatever they are off deviantart for this one
I'm saying accepting one for being stupid and mocking another one for being stupid comes off as really stupid.
Also it would only count apples to oranges if I were comparing the genres directly. I'm not. I'm talking about elements of both games that came off as really dumb but otherwise don't effect the actual /game/ part of the video game itself.
You said it yourself, Yoko Taro is a hack fraud but he gets a pass because it's an expected quality coming from him.
I haven't really heard the gameplay being mocked yet, so I just see it as /v/ being /v/ all over again.
If that's true, how the FUCK did they screw that one up?
I put money on shit level design of the animation is foretelling.
>>389584>but otherwise don't effect the actual /game/ part of the video game itself.
Its an rpg, the story is the gameplay. When your characters are more or less walking T-poses and pop in and out of existence and the main waifu holds her gun backwards when firing, it kinda fucks with the game.
I haven't played Automata, but I do know there's a mechanic that allows you to unplug your own brain and die instantly, so I can't in good conscience allow anyone to talk shit about the game
I was joking about the T-pose, the other two I have actually seen. Peebee holding her gun backwards in a cutscene was one of the first things that really made people go "wow this is gonna be awful"
>>389599>It's an RPG the story is the gameplay
But Automata is an RPG? idgi familia.
I just have a neutral nature to these sorts of things. I just wanted to point it out it's a little silly that Space-kun would poop on Andromeda after just getting Automata.>>389601>People actually did that on accident
I don't even, how the hell do you not read the description. The best part is removing the HUD entirely and putting GO FAST chips in instead. The overworld felt much tinier once I got to [Prototype] levels of GOTTA GO FAST.>>389597
Can't really take your word for it without assuming you have some sort of bias to try to confirm your own thoughts.
>It's an RPG the story is the gameplay
A hallmark of an RPG that is story driven as a primary building block for how an entire IP functions, is a world that suspends belief to draw you into it's particular setting.
Nier can be wacky and w/e for the story because it's not the selling point at all. Even if Andromeda had basic mediocre TPS gameplay, thats not what's causing the uproar. It's the fact that the silver lining of what made the series good in the first place is destroyed.
Ah, okay, I see. Well I guess I can see that, I guess I just never took RPGs with such appreciation anyway.
I just mess around a lot.
NieR: Automata is the early front-runner for GOTY (if we're not counting Zelda).
You should DEFINITELY play that shit.
