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.

Guys... Gigantic is getting discontinued :(

I personally really liked that game and wish that MOBAs weren't so flooded that it wasn't overwhelmed.

I have been obsessed with Slay the Spire for about a week now. A great combination of roguelike and deckbuilder, with a lot of room for variety, and a lot of room to grow.

It's really hard to be a MOBA. You either have to be good enough to convince league and Dota players to spend 100s of hours learning your game, or have to be simple enough to attract the players that don't like the other 2.

Ascension has been a great way to learn that failure is fun again. Loving this game, in particular Shiv Silent and Rampage Ironborn.

I still feel like the first one is the best and KOTOR 2 has a darker gritty tone to it and that can appeal to a certain crowd.

It's not necessarily darker and grittier as much as it plays with Star Wars lore a bit more. It's greyer as opposed to necessarily darker. If you're looking for the obvious "good v evil, Jedi v Sith" story, it's not that. But that doesn't make it required to be "darker and grittier".

I recently got Quake Champions.
It reminded me of how much I love Quake Live when that was free and I played that on the side of TF2 and just how fucking amazing Arena Shooters are.

Into the Breach is really good/annoying
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.

My biggest problem with Into the Breach is that it combines "You're screwed, and there's nothing you can do about it" with "It's actually demonstrable your fault that you're screwed." Like, I keep getting into scenarios where I can't stop the Vek from destroying something, and then realizing that if I'd done something different last turn, I'd be better positioned now. It's also really addicting, though, since it's clear what's happening and why, and solving a turn feels awesome.

I'm looking for advice about the Trails in the Sky/Trails of Cold Steel games. I just got a Vita and thought it would be a good excuse to play them.

It seems like the PSP TitS games are the place to start, then ToCS on Vita (all playable on Vita, though PSP TitS3rd is JP-only).

Is this correct, or does fan nostalgia kinda elevate the TitS games? I'm interested because of the Persona+Suikoden talking point I keep hearing for ToCS.

I think the key is realizing you *have* to let certain things die in the game. You can get power back, you can't get objectives/pilots back nearly as easily.

The difficulty spike is real though - I'm two achievements shy of perfect, one of which being HARD MODE which is harder just by means of throwing more vek at you per turn.

Yeah, recognizing that sometimes you just have to take the damage is definitely what lead to a rise in my game.
