When you read all the hate online, it's easy to think that FFXIII was the blunder of the century, but it sits comfortably in the the top 10 best selling FF games. Its sequel, while not as successful, still sold ok. And with its limited development costs it probably made a decent profit.

Unfortunately... it doesn't like SquareEnix will learn any lessons from FFXIII. The decent enough sales will only encourage them to do more of the same with slight variations. Final Fantasy is finally dead.

Ye olde thread: >>173756

Was overwhelmed with nostalgia when I saw EpicNameBro start a Vagrant Story LP. But since I left my original copy with my parents, I had to emulate it, which worked surprsingly well. It's still fucking fantastic amazing spectacular. You should all play it.

Only watched a few short demo videos of it a few years ago. Seems to be coming along somewhat nicely, I guess? The mechanics look amazing, I just wish there would be an actual game to accompany them.

Okay this is sort of random but can anyone give me advice on how to NOT SUCK as a general in Medieval II Total War (Kingdoms)?

I bought this game on the cheap awhile back, installed it and played a bunch of skirmish battles to try and get a feel, and got wasted 90% of the time, think I managed to scrape by in 2 siege battles with high losses.
After reading an LP for Shogun 2 I really just want to go back and atually play it this time.

And so this isn't a totally superflous thread how about making it a Total War... General?

I don't know if seeing the Leviathan is really worth all the shittyness added to the plot by the DLC. I mean, like, I'm conflicted.

As a consideration, any kills made in the Mako earn one-third experience points. Weakening them with the rover, hopping out, and finishing them off yourself gives normal experience. This includes parking the thing on top of Geth mechs.

I tried doing a full playthrough myself recently, but the Mako really needs forward boosters or something.

If I recall correctly, some enemy types scale but just as many are fixed. Level has a bigger impact on loot, from enemy drops and the shops.

/cog/ when and why did the war on good HUDs begin?

Like most things in life, Deus Ex figured things out years ago: almost everything you could want to know was up there whenever you wanted it, and everything else was clearly shown a mere click or keyboard press away.

Nowadays, devs seem bound and determined to conceal information from the player, to force us to open up menus and fuss with them for an age to find out what should just be up on the screen to start with. And don't get me started on replacing a nice, helpful health display with that red screen garbage.

It still occasionally annoyed a bit that it didn't just stay there. Not all that much, but I never appreciated it getting out of the way. There quite simply was enough room for it, and I'd rather such a thing be static than move around needlessly.
>> No. 178170
Actually, now that I think about it, Mario 64 was released back when CRT televisions were more common and avoiding screen burn-in was more of a concern.

ITT we celebrate the games that are just straight up fucking insane

Pic related, it's Way of the Samurai 4. The WotS series in general has a tradition of being batshit, but 4's pretty much the top. Two Best Friends did a basic video and then a playthrough series of it. And here's a Giant Bomb QL for 3: Quick Look: Way of the Samurai 3youtube thumb

I am a big fan of the WotS series.

The plots can be crazy-awesome samurai goodness, yes, particularly in sidequests. and yes you are right in saying 4 is crazier than the previous games.

I still think it a pity that we never got a Wii port. The gyroscope would have been excellent for controlling it, and having the sounds of things you collect come out of the Wiimote would cause smiles.

Oh well.

I have a question and I'm not trying to be insulting or a dick and I'd just like to know.

Does anyone care about Grand Theft Auto anymore? like Five is what, 3 Months away? The only time I ever see anyone talk about GTA is in relation to how Saints Row is way better.

Gonna g'head and start us a new one to revive interest and since the last one's kinda outdated in OP and topic.

Topics to start!
>NECA Action Figures and their code for Genuine Classless Update hats
>The announcement of the Chess Set. What Classes are what pieces?
>Steam Market beta and how you can make half a dollar off DOTA2 invites: or; How I learned to stop worrying and price crates at over 300 dollars each (go look, I ain't kiddin')
>Incoming Promotional Items. Brutal Legend Hair and Taunt and Demo/Scout Sneakers.

I've also found a lot of good fanart to fill the thread out with.

One of the reasons I like the TF2 fanbase is that it's the one place where I can like TF2, Portal, Half-Life, and L4D all at once. On Tumblr the Half-Life fans are over there hissing at the Portal fans, refusing to accept that the two games canonically share the same universe, the Portal fandom keeps to itself, and the L4D fandom also keeps to itself.

I heard TF2 fanbase on Tumblr has pretty nasty shipwars (seriously? fucking seriously? shipwars in fucking TF2?) so you should probably also stay the fuck away from them. A few years ago I remember the Sniper/Spy and Ukescout fangirls on /v/ of all places were already bad enough, and I bet those who've moved onto Tumblr have probably festered into the worst type of yaoi fangirl.
