Ultimate Videogame Topic 3: The Next Generation

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

E3 is above average this year. It's sad that KH3 is my most anticipated but I felt the most indifferent about those trailers.

Resident Evil 2 remake is sweet. Sony had at least 3 interesting releases for me. Bethesda is taking to multiplayer with Fallout which might actually get me to play that series now.

Just finished Detroit Become Human. It was p good, better than the other games like it I think, but it was p cheesy at parts. IDK maybe not as good as heavy rain. better than indigo prophecy and beyond though.

I don't have a PS4, but I've seen LPs of it. Detroit does seem pretty restrained for a David Cage project.
One time, back in 'nam, Sudo was set upon by an entire squadron of charlies. He challenged them all to a game of Pictionary, which he won resoundingly. The charlies were forced to not only surrender the skirmish, but also their world-famous chili recipe, which Sudo sold to Texas for a hefty profit. Sudo is a master of diplomacy.

I mean, they didn't immediately go hard into magical bullshit, there's no pointless sex scene for the sake of having one, and the acting isn't ludicrously hammy. As you say, there's some cheesy moments, but there's very few outright bad scenes like there were in Heavy Rain or Indigo Prophecy. Or Beyond Two Souls, which was basically just cheesy from start to finish.

Well, like...Marcus stops the Army from killing the androids by Kissing North...which isn't a sex scene but is incredibly cheesy. And the entire allegory is pretty hamfisted. Not to mention another female character that's treated pretty terribly. There are a few pretty hammed up acting bits but yeah, nothing like "SHAAAUUNN"

My daughter's favorite video game is Journey. She really enjoys the environments, she thinks the cloth creatures are cute, she likes being able to explore without worrying about enemies or complicated controls. She's completed the game multiple times, and she still loves watching her little star cross the sky now just as much as she did the first time she finished.

One of the game's most interesting features is that you can sometimes cross paths with another player. I'm not quite sure how the game determines when this happens, but every once in a while you'll happen upon another robed figure and you can continue your journey together. There's no ability to chat in the game, so communication is limited to the hops and little bloop noises your character can make. (as a parent I appreciate this) She loves when this happens and always looks forward to seeing their account name after the credits roll.

A couple days ago she happened upon a new friend early in the game. About halfway through we called her to dinner so she had to stop, but she didn't want to quit completely so she left the game running. Her friend of course had no idea why my daughter's avatar had suddenly stopped moving and spent the next 20 minutes or so amusing himself by running rings around her seated figure or jumping around the screen. My daughter was touched that he didn't abandon her and we relented and let her leave the table early to not keep him waiting.

Eventually they ascended the mountain together, and spent a longer time than is usual (I think) playing in the clouds with the cloth dragons. Eventually they started up the final path to the end when her companion for the past couple hours abruptly turned around. She stopped, confused, and I commented that maybe he wasn't ready to leave yet. But when she panned the camera back to watch where he was going she saw that he wasn't leaving after all, but he'd drawn her a heart in the snow. She was crying as they walked into the bright light together.

It's funny how small things can have such a big impact.

It's a dating sim/visual novel. It's free on Steam. It's not too long of a game. I recommend going in blind - don't read the Steam reviews, or anything but the About section, really.

And for those of you that tuned out my post after I said "dating sim/visual novel", no, seriously, go play it anyway.

This game won't be getting out of my head for a while.

OK so yes the puzzle concept in the Witness was great but everything surrounding it was incredibly pretentious but didn't even get close to saying anything profound.

I just beat it and I'm like "but why."

I am playing Persona 5 and really enjoying it. I'm worried that I've fallen a bit behind already and it's like three game days in, but that's mostly due to the online activity log, while the game hasn't given me any signalling that I'm ill-prepared.

That activity log feature is a GODSEND. Less due to the percentages and more to show you any and all options you have at that point in the game. Even if it isn't, it feels like it's giving me all the options to choose from so that I don't miss anything I might want to do.

P5 is fantastic. I didn't worry about efficient time useage my first time thru and I'm glad I didn't. Because as soon as I finished the game, I *immediately* went back and started a new one with the goal of maximizing my efficiency.
