Re: Review The Last Game You Beat

Telltale's Walking Dead: Season 2

Not quite as good as the first, but still decent in its own right. Clementine was the best part. She's gotten more mature and is wise beyond her years, but not so much that you forget she's still a kid. Unfortunately, this came at the cost of most of the adults being completely retarded. Hey, does anyone know how to work this electrical transformer? I know, I'll let the 11 year old handle it! I get that people aren't always rational under stress, especially during a zombie apocalypse, but it's a wonder these people lasted this long.

The main problem can be summed up as "missed potential". There's clearly been rewrites as the later episodes were developed, dropping developing plotlines just for "less-obvious" routes despite them coming out of nowhere. One of the biggest flaws from the first game, your choices not actually mattering most of the time, seems more prevalent in the second game. I can't tell if it's because I was just more aware of it going into the second game or if it's because it was more obvious. Characters you save all end up dieing later on, just in different stupid ways.

The ending though, at least the one I got, made the whole trip worthwhile.

Re: Shenmue 3's overall reception

In the 70s. Same as every game that doesn't have a $100 million ad campaign behind it/the reviewer isn't personal friends with the developers. Take some points off for being Japanese too.
Oh please. To deny that the gaming media isn't massively corrupt and in bed with certain publishers is wilful ignorance.
I would love for you to bring up any evidence you have, but I'm sure you don't have any. enjoy your tinfoil hat.
Off the top of my head:

Polygon accepts $750,000 from Microsoft before they even launch:

Polygon writer gives positive coverage to developer he is not only friends with, but supports financially via Patreon:

Kotaku claim that anyone who complains about Call of Duty is "stupid", "idiots", "obnoxious elitists" and "assholes" whilst also running an extensive Call of Duty ad campaign on their site -

Kotaku and Polygon both extensively defended Diablo III's always online DRM, going as far as to attack anyone who criticised it as "ignorant" whilst also running extensive ads for the game -

Journalist is flown to resort by Activision, later whilst other reviewers marked the latest Call of Duty down for poor AI, linear gameplay, and uneven pacing, he praised it as the “ultimate refinement of the franchise formula” and “the best Call of Duty ever.”

Ubisoft hands out free $200 Tablets to reviewers at Watch_Dogs event. Coincidentally it's critical score is almost double the user score on Metacritic -

Oh and remember when review copies of Dante's Inferno came with $200 in cash? There's something to be said for bluntness -

And let's not even get into the big ones like the Driv3r debacle. Or the Kane & Lynch controversy. Or DoritoGate.

The idea that games journalism isn't massively corrupt and incompetent is just insanity. All journalism is rotten, I've worked in 2 different fields of journalism, but games journalism is the worst of the worst. I cannot fathom why anyone would ever defend it (unless they're a games journalist).

Re: Xenoblade 2

Just like the previous two, the opening of the game is very easy. He said he's about 10 hours in. You only auto attack basic moves, you have to manually do your arts/magic for your MC. The further along you get, the more the difficulty ramps up. To the point to where if you don't stagger you will literally do 1 hp of damage to them. You will 100% not auto attack your way through any of these lol. Watching his game play, he's not using cancel arts or triggering any blade combos. He's just waiting for each cool down instead of doing what the game taught him.

JRPG's vary so much from title to title, and not everyone is going to like this game. But its almost universally praised. I'm 40-ish hours in and the story, characters and world are great. Not saying that everyone who plays it will like it, but I've watched his videos for awhile now. Ever since he was on Scottsquatch's flea market videos. Not for a second did I think he was going to like Xenoblade lol. Just based on the game he does like.

Not saying you two will like it, especially if you don't finish other RPG's, but you shouldn't base your judgment off his video. Watch some people who actually know what they are doing with the combat because the story and the world they've built are awesome.

Re: Daily Shenmue - Starting November 29th

I have to apologize for not updating recently. I just started a new job and just haven't had the time to sit down and play any Shenmue, unfortunately. I made it through the warehouse on the 14th, and did manage to play once on the 15th, but I haven't played at all since then. Gunna play some today and then write my journal entries tomorrow morning. Since both Monday and Tuesday are my days off. They might be a little less "daily" but I'll at least play catch-up on my days off for what I missed during the week. Anyway, good news is I'm back to playing :)

"New job"? Does that include forklifts?! On a serious note, I love your work so far. It'd probably be a best-selling book! That would be cool actually, to see it from Ryo's perspective! It could be titled something like "Ryo Hazuki: The journey to avenge my father's death"!

Re: Does Anyone Here actually like Simulation Games?

Based on this topic so far, I don't think I even understand what qualifies a game as being a "sim."
Previously I would have assumed a sim would primarily be a game that handles its subject matter realistically, in a realistic setting; most flight sims, for example, or something like the Gran Turismo series.
But now I'm seeing mentions of The Sims (which, despite the name, obviously isn't a realistic life simulator), Stardew Valley, Actraiser, Persona, Deadly Premonition, and Harvest Moon.
So uh... yeah. I'll just mention the Styx games as being my favorite murderous robbing goblin simulations. And Asura's Wrath is easily my favorite angry god on a quest for revenge sim.
I friggin love sims.

The friends of Ringo Ishikawa

Hello, guys. If i'm breaking some law you'll just delete this post, i suppose.

I'm currently in development of the game heavenly inspired by Shenmue and Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari. It's an open world game about japanese delinquents focused on story and small things that don't do much but matters a lot in the end (like feeding a cat in Shenmue).

So i'm just looking for players who could be interested.

Here's a greenlight trailer i made a year ago and some screenshots.

If you don't mind i'll be posting some news about the game once in a while.

Sorry for an adv.

Re: The friends of Ringo Ishikawa

> So is this going to be on Steam?


> Just looked up some of the earlier Technos-style gameplay too; have to say, I really liked the atmosphere in some of the videos where snow is falling and it's got soft jazz playing.

It's Chet Baker's Alone together:

It was a short noir game at first. Now i made it a little longer with proper story but still it'll be 4-5 hours long.

> I know you haven't finalized the music, but that was a nice touch anyway.

No, i actually finalized the music. I have 3 original tracks and more than 20 royalty free. Downtempo, trip-hop mostly. Here's one of the original tracks:
