Jesus this game was hard to understand. I remember getting to near the end of the game wondering why I did no damage. Had no clue about lvling up summons or anything. Good thing they were so overpowered and had so much hp you had to try to die in this game.

Still better then ff9.

Is it looking through rose colored glasses of me to say that like Quakes effect on FPS, Thief was a huge influence (perhaps the biggest) on the stealth genre?



I realize I might be lynched for this but, I feel metal gear solid was a much bigger influence to be honest. Also thief was hardly the first game with stealth.

There's also Wildstar. It's similar to WoW but with more tactical combat. There's a decent amount of hype for it.

Tactical combat lol. I remember seeing a video how one of their super innovative things was a icon when a mob does a don't stand in fire attack. Hard time seeing the guy able to say that with a straight face.

If you asked most MMO fans to describe what they really want in the next, best MMO, most will describe Ultima Online, but made with modern tech.

UO was all about the pvp. No pvp game has been as successful as everquest, let alone wow. Your statement doesn't add up. I do definitely see a vocal minority in every mmo thread that wants pvp in everything however.

The whole combat model of modern MMO's needs to die but they can't really move beyond it towards a more action oriented darksiders model because of latency issues and the fact that most MMORPG players have the reflexes of retarded monkeys.

Play Tera sometime, or look at some blade and soul videos. They are pretty much what you are describing, korea has a ton of excellent action combat mmos. It's just american mmo developers seem to be unable to deliver. The secret world was a fucking embarrassment compared to tera.

Okay, ill bite, in what way did ESO suck? Other than being an early beta and having a lot of bugs I saw nothing about the game that had me thinking the game sucked. There were some aspects that I think they need to change.

The combat is straight up terrible. I know es games are not known for their combat but at least I can tell when I hit something in skyrim.

And I really never got the hype surrounding gw2. It's like people completely forgot that gw1 was so boring.

Yeah was really wary of hirez but this game is too much damn fun. Much more interesting then dota/dawngate/league imo. If it wasn't how tribes went down I would put down the 30 dollars to guarantee every god released(unless they pull a s2 games and go jk).

Looks amazing, surprised how similar the ui is to galciv 2 though. But hell after so many disapointing 4x games the past few years(civ 5 and elemental come to mind),I'll be happy with a playable modern 4x that doesn't have crushing design flaws. Who am I kidding, when it comes to stardock lately it's probably going to be a buggy mess for a while.

That reminds me, was the ai of twilight of the arnor ever patched? I remember at release having to go back to the last expansion since the ai had no idea how to play the game anymore.

to say that nudity doesnt exist on the major consoles is astoundingly ignorant. heavy rain, god of war ,mass effect,max payne 3, duke nukem,dantes inferno, red dead redemption. L.A. noire, dragon age, gta, shadows of the damned, and on and on and on...

Thanks for making my point for me. All the games you listed are not japanese.

Funny thing is that Elfen Lied is Dutch for Elven Song. Funny that the Japanese should call it that.

Anyway, it seems that as long as it's Manga/Anime, it's okay, but if it's Western violence, then it's wrong. It's just stupid cultural "protection" crap.

Something to keep in mind is that in general western games are in fact more violent. Also nudity in games pretty much doesn't exist on the major consoles so I don't see how it has anything to do with where the game came from. It's just a case of games being treated differently from other media because it's seen as for kids. Something that is no different from what goes on in the west.

Something else that might surprise some people:cowboy bebop originally only aired the first 12 episodes because of it's content due to controversy. Anything goes in japan is a myth.

Man, on one hand im hyped as fuck. New GalCiv! Then I remember how terrible fallen enchantress is even after the expansions and all the patches and I start to lose hope. Here's hoping the guy that did fall from heaven is a big part of the design process rather then the guy from civ5.

Blizzard taking butthurt to the next level, this is all because they are mad valve made dota 2. Which is kind of odd when you consider for example id didn't throw a fit about tfc. But then, Warcraft 3 was easily pirated to play dota online so blizzard made nothing off it while everyone who wanted to play team fortress or counter strike had to buy quake/hl.

If gaben seriously thinks any but the most hardcore will move to linux hes on some serious shit. If this is just something for hardcore pc gamers to have a sort of separate gaming pc in their living room, I see it doing as well as all the other attempts to control the living room from tech companies.

I'm more interested in the idea I see on non gaming sites that thinks valve sees the pc is dying which will eventually lead to a decline in pc gaming as more and more just buy tablets. If this turns out to be essentially a competitor to the mainstream consoles with set specs that developers can create games in mind for we might have something interesting. If this steambox can run ps4 and xbone pc ports for 500 or less I might even buy the thing

I predict Persona 5 will be a grindy animu waifu simulator. Probably taking place in a high school.

Sounds good to me.

Does this mean we will finally get a new persona? Fucking travesty that the series skipped the entire current console gen.

Also the third version of the persona fighting game makes sense(when previous licensed fighters from the company never got sequels) since now they don't even have to pay a fee for the licence!

O god hope sega doesn't make the next persona a shitty handheld game like they did the valkyrie profile series. So conflicted by this news.

From what I understand the game did pretty poorly and the original publisher shut the servers down. Now they are re releasing it with a new one.

He might be bitter that square implied tomb raider didn't sell well. All because it didn't meet their insane expectations of 10 million copies sold or whatever so that the western arm of the company could continue to fund the shitty games coming out of japan.

Tried beta for the new version. Actually pretty good. If it wasn't for the character models you could 100% pass it as a completely new game. Hell, you can even click things! Dont think FF11 ever got that right
