  1. I also was invested enough in BOTW that I got Hyrule Warriors: Calamity, or whatever it's called !vgp I find it to be similar-but-different enough to be a bit . . . weird, off-putting at first, but after getting the hang of it, it's some good, light fun.

      • Man I miss good old game rentals. Like, I want to try New Pokemon Snap, but I don't think I'll get $60 of fun out of it... $20, probably, but I understand this is not a $20 game. So, yeah. I miss rentals. !vgp #

        • @scribus Purchasing it used might be an option. On ebay in Germany the prices are between 30€ and 40€. I guess it won't be cheaper anytime soon. Pokemon Snap for the N64 is cheaper as a cart only offer but complete in box it's still at original retail prices.

      • Gotta say, if'n I'd fully known what an asshole King Hyrule was, and what a whiner they'd turned Zelda into, I might not have bothered defeating Calamity Ganon... !vgp #

        • Children. Having children is the breaking point of every Sims game. It takes two godrotten hours for them to put the little wantwit on the potty chair, by which time they're sitting in a soiled diaper. You tell them to potty train when it's halfway full, you sit for three hours waiting. You wait for yellow (not even orange or red) on the meter, and it's already too late. Sims potty training is like trying to catch a pear ripe. It may happen, yeah, but it's 100% luck. !vgp

            • Well, "Sludge Life" seems like some good dumb light fun, if you've played and enjoyed "Jet Set Radio." !vgp (Although, uhh, it looks like JSR is cheaper than SL, and a more "professional" title...)

              • The Battle Gem Ponies Combat Demo

                ​Our first public upload in 3 or 4 years after starting this entire project over after tragically losing every project file for the 2017 build. Since then this game has gone from a solo-indie project to a team-powered labor of love and it's looking all the better for it!

                Go ahead and give it a try! http://rainbowdash.net/url/835730 http://rainbowdash.net/url/875927

                  • @zeldatra Even after all of the updates and finally putting pools into the base game, I just cannot stand Sims 4. They're too dumb, and they're too bad at listening to the User. The multitasking is cool, and they don't clutter at stairs and doorways as badly as 3, but really.... That's about it, gameplay-wise, for me. Otherwise it's like they traded one graphical step forward for two or three game steps back. I hire a babysitter, I go to the bar with my wife, I come home at 3 AM and the toddler is unfed in the backyard playing around in a dirty diaper and that was about when I decided the game was literally unfinished and in Cimmeria, by Crom, pushing unfinished software to market would cost one's HEAD!! lol

                  • @scribus I should probably mention that The Sims 2 runs on a pretty much identical game engine to The Sims 3, with the big differences being that create-a-sim is more detailed in 3 and, of course, the interconnected neighborhood with no load screens. If you’re used to 3’s clutter it’s PROBABLY the better game, I’m just not.

                  • Playing Metal Gear Solid again... I bodyslammed Meryl while she was disguised because I recognized her walk cycle and I wanted to see what would happen. Nothing happens, she just sprints into her next cutscene to prevent you from impeding her any further. And then she still claims to have gotten the jump on you.

                    • @zeldatra Borderlands II. A bad case of "You need to kill the boss before he pushes the doomsday button!" And then you kill them, with an acid rocket to the nards, all the way across the arena... and wait for a monologue, and a dead guy to push the cussing button anyway. It got to where I wasn't invested in the story missions because I knew nothing I accomplished would accomplish anything. !vgp # maybe?

                    • @scribus This is why I always enjoyed the mostly-unscripted nature of the later Fallouts & Elder Scrolls. New Vegas particularly introduces you to a major antagonist (or ally, if you choose to go that route...) fairly early on, while you’re on your way to a story quest, and you can just let him do his thing, or, if you have the firepower, you can just FrankerZin shoot him and he won’t appear again for the rest of the game. (And then you can shoot his replacement later, too!)

                  • There is a good damn reason they only ever made one major movie in the first-person, when will video games learn that first-person is the worst-person? !vgp

                    • Borderlands 2 is fun right up until I either run up against the usual "What am I stuck on, why am I not running, why can't I even jump, if I'm not supposed to be here how did I even get in and why can't I get out again" antics of every FPS ever... That, or the keyboard-as-controller issues of "I wanted my knife, not to throw a grenade at my own feet..." !vgp

                      • @scribus True story: I grew up pretty much entirely on PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360, so when I finally got a PC that could properly handle video games I was immediately put off by the keyboard controls and plugged in an Xbox One controller instead. To this day it's really hard for me to play shooters the "real" way.

                      • @mrmattimation I had had an NES, GameBoy, SNES, Atari XE, and Sega Genesis before we got our first "real" family computer, a 486 running Windows 3.11. My parents declared that the computer was therefore not for games, unless they were educational. I believe I would go on to N64, 3DS, and Xbox 360 before trying WASD-anything.
