RE6 really does deserve its own topic for being the confused, strange mess it is. It's a very "Capcom" game, and everything is designed with maximum coolness in mind. A part of me wants to like it, but it has too many insane design choices to it and I find myself caring less and less as the game goes on.

Haven't played ME: A too much yet, but it doesn't seem too shabby. I'm playing unpatched, of course, to get a maximum laugh out of the wooden animations.

Just did my introduction post in the proper thread, so let's go into business Smile

I'm playing Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. If you guys played Ninja Gaiden 2 and this one, you can see how this PS3 remake is incredibly easier, so I decided to do a restricted run: Master Ninja, no items (save for health upgrades and talismans), no UT's, no Ninpo and no Izuna drop or similars. It may sound hard as hell but it isn't. It's perfectly doable if you have experience of the original game, which is the actual journey through hell. So, I'm having fun since in this game you can use alot of moves and strategies that were simply ineffectve on the original.

@Royta: so, since I've played quite a bit of Master Ninja mode, I think I may summarize my opinion about the game. As I said, I agree with you that Sigma 2 is really polished. It seems that the priority was to make the most polished product possible, in fact the game is not only very balanced in difficulty (if we exclude the armadillo which goes beyond my comprehension) but it seems to have much less bugs and slowdowns. Though, we have to admit that NG2 constitutes a more unique game that delivers a type of experience that no other game gives the player, while Sigma 2 offers a more streamlined gameplay, which can be associated to many other action games, only with much harder difficulty level. Adding that NG2 gameplay was partially fixed with mission mode, and that Sigma 2 has racist mission mode (play online or suffer the AI companion) still makes me think that NG2 is an experience any "hardcore" action gamer should try. Aside from that, I think I probably prefere playing Sigma 2 because the learning curve is less frustrating, so I can have an NG game that doesn't feel too stressful and I can play it even if I'm not super focused or if I'm a bit tired.

So, I think I'll continue playing Sigma 2 and doing runs with a couple of weapons, then take a break. But the NG in which I want to really improve in the future, maybe next year, is Razor's Edge. The game has brilliant combat system, despite some issues in the technical department, some pointless bosses and the "balanced for coop" mission mode. Still the story mode and chapter challenge mode offer a high degree of replayability, and the ToV's are much better than in NG2. I'll probably open some threads in Ninja Gaiden sections.

I've also started a character in Dark Souls 3. So, this game has brilliant art style and animations, fun bosses and enemies, though I can't play it more than a couple of minutes, it just get boring for me. I just can't understand why, it's a really good game on paper but with me has this impact. I'd rather play Dark Souls 1 or Bloodborne. Let alone Nioh, but I think it shouldn't be compared to souls games. Also I have to admit that souls it's starting to grow a bit old on me. I can't seem to be able to enjoy even Bloodborne these days.

I've seen you guys were talking about Absolver. That game looks cool, I may be interested into it, but from what I've seen it's a game meant for pvp. If you guys can confirm it has good pve then I could try it, otherwise I'll pass, I really don't like online play and multiplayer.

Also Zelda game series was mentioned. Now, I don't wanna sound like those "game hipsters" that wanna look cool, but these days I was watching a guy on twitch doing speedruns at the very first Legend of Zelda game on an original NES, and I think it's a damn cool game. Btw the guy is Arcus87, a popular speedrunner which recently did the Wolrd Record on Ninja Gaiden 1 NES speedrun. He only play NES games. Now, I don't like to do speedrun but maybe I can to try play Zelda NES for fun on an emulator.

> Sigma 2 challenge run
Pretty neat, I still want to do something like this for Ninja Gaiden Black with the addition of 'no savescumming' since I tend to just run to the save point after EVERY damn fight haha, maybe add a no GT to it since I tend to spam that.

> tagging
The site does have the feature btw, but it is...iffy haha.

> Sigma 2 in general
You basically noted my love for the game in on sentence: "I'm having fun since in this game you can use alot of moves and strategies that were simply ineffectve on the original"- the original felt so restrictive, you could barely use half your moveset without getting punished for it harshly which was a damn shame. I will admit that NG2 is a far more unique experience, there's nothing quite like it and surviving it. I will add that I don't enjoy playing NG2 as much as Sigma 2, NG2 is just depressing, no matter how good you are it is always a matter of survival, not perfection.

> mission mode
Now, yes. On launch it was a blast since you could co-op (which is dead now). Ultimate Ninja 01 and 02 really brought the community together in a way it hadn't before. I would wish it allowed for a solo mode though. In the end I prefer NG3:RE's mission mode the most as it allows for co-op while also giving pros something to strive for. Players like ShowR showed that it was possible to beat most of them solo.

> open threads in NG section
YES! Please! Looking forward to it!

> Absolver
Best ask around that board, especially with Birdman. He's played it.

Absolver's PvE is awful. I wouldn't recommend to anyone. I haven't played in ages though and there have been many updates, so I don't know if they've changed anything. Just watch a playthrough and you'll see. It's a super small world with only other masked human enemies.

I finally got Okami HD PS4 in the mail 2 days ago and have been playing it ever since. It's a no upgrade run, and I'm also trying to get to the end as fast as possible because people want to know if the song plays in the end credits. I have the Asia version and this Japanese song was removed from the English versions.

Well that's sad to hear, but also good - one less game to play.

In terms of my games right now, I'm deeply invested in play Ninja Gaiden Black. Doing two runs right now, one is just a regular 100% run, the other being all the missions in Mission Mode with all weapons and no healing. Aside from that I'm playing The Evil Within 2 on Survivor Knife Only, to practice for Nightmare. I'm not sure on some stuff yet, will post in the topic about it. Might need some insight.

Really wanting to buy and play The Cursed Crusade, Remember Me and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge. But where will I find the time...

I had Cursed Crusade years ago, never beat it but I had some fun with my sister in (couch) coop. I don't think it's particularly good but I'll give it a try again.

True, really good move for free i-frames, unfortunately the way to go in NG2 if you wanna use the sword. Though, in NGB it's possible.

Sorry! I'll find how to do it :)

Though it was super boring XD
He's the NG man though. Btw, I'll try to open a thread here in the NG section for my run and other stuff.

I should replay all the arcade games I had emulated as a kid, tons of obscure beat em ups and shooters I have knowledge off, might as well make use of that haha. Played a lot of NeoGeo games, I always recall Sengoku1&2 and Shock Troopers fondly.  

Anyone else have arcade experience?.

Havent seen you for awhile son.

Arcade - hell yes though it was usually just the few cabinets in takeout places. There's a few games I remember playing but dont know the titles. Wish I could remember them.

I bought an SNES mini last year but havent opened it yet. I plan to grab that Commodore thing as I wasnt around when it had its run.

We had a small restaurant called King Arthur (long gone now) that had a pool table and a SF2 arcade machine on the second floor. Used to go there all the time in breaks when studying MultiMedia design (was only 15 minutes walk to that cafe.). 

Only time otherwise was when I was in Japan and played some Space Harrier and SF2 in the arcades. I think as far as arcade games go I love Space Harrier the most. Such a addicting little game. Sega really ruled the arcades at one point.

Hey guys I'm still alive. Just playing Third Strike on Fightcade because I'm stupid. Yeah, it doesn't make sense: untechable throws, unblockable fullscreen ex elbows and shoulder rams, unblockable overheads, parryes that require you to move the stick a month in advance, lag abusers, assholes of all kinds. Good times, definitely. So if you wanna play my nickname is "G3nshin" and right now I basically use Ken only. If we'll have too much lag I will ask to quit though, so forgive me for that Crying or Very sad

If you want we can play sometime, I'll see if I can add you. Ken's are hard for me though (Twelve main). But with online it's all different (doubt you can hitconfirm Super online). Twelve's biggest flaw is that he lacks combos, but that's not really an issue online. Sad part is he relies heavily on parries so that makes him a bit worse again.

I also like to toy around with Ryu, Sean, Alex and Q though.

I play on fightcade, so you don't have to add me, you can jump in the room and double click on my nickname to challenge me.

Well it's really possible with Ken to hitconfirm online because his confirms are easy. Not saying that I'm good at it but it's really possible to do it consistently imo. Though, online creates other problems, like parries, you said it, so I wouldn't take things too seriously.

Theoretically I also use Necro, but I can't hit confirm his back mp anymore so that kinda destroys my enthusiasm into playing him. Because yes, Third Strike is all about strict hit confirms aside from parries (of course).

I wonder if SFAlpha's are more playable online.

I've been working on Knack 2 for ages now. Keep finding more tech then go on testing rampages that take days lol.

I really want to get to Vampyr. I might do so after I've finished writing up what I have on Knack. I still need to go into enemy specifics/behavior/AI manipulation but that's a huge endeavour. Might play Vampyr before getting into that.

Right now I'm working on:

Ninja Gaiden 2004 PAIN+ run
Still stuck in Chapter 5. What a nightmare, but I think I have the fight down now, just need to sit my ass down this weekend and get through it.

Subsurface Circular
Fun little game, completely story focused. Don't think it will hold up on repeat playthroughs, but a fun experience for 1,50 (had some discounts pilled up).

Prey
As noted.


I sometimes pop Devil's Third, Shocktroopers and Ikaruga in. But not too often.

EDF 5 is due this summer in the west(at least north america, its already came out December in Japan) so i've got that to look forward to. I've not told my dad as i want it to be a surprise(it might come out August, my birthday month).
We've completed EDF2017 and EDF2025, So 5, which looks to the best no contest(ITS GOT GIANT FROG MEN AS REGULAR MOBS, SHOOTING THEIR LIMBS OFF IS A MECHANIC). I'm certain It'll be a treat.


EDIT:@Roy: I've seen you've been playing Shock Troopers? I mentioned it in this very thread not too long ago(post 58, along with Sengoku 1&2) but never made a topic for it so i feel ashamed to not have informed you earlier.
It was always one of my favorites out of the hundreds of arcade games i emulated as a lad(that bangin OST tho?).

Can you give me some further insight in Sengoku 1 and 2? I love 3, but 1 and 2 seem very iffy. Still look fun though don't get me wrong, but very different! And man, Shocktroopers. The soundtrack alone was worth the price of admission. Trying to 1cc it from time to time, but tend to lose at least one life.

Love how they misspelled "lonely".

I'm going to be playing less for a while because it really takes away from my study time.

I dont play too much during the week anyway due to being too tired but if I finish early due to a cancellation I usually will and usually only for an hour or two.

I just realized I could be making so much progress in an hour. I'll still play every second I can on weekends though.

The most important thing to note is I often lie. Like how I said I was going to stop buying games and get through my backlog. Interesting theories I suppose.

Study? What are you studying? Something besides your main job, or something within it?

On another note, found a REALLY...and I mean really cheap used games store. Bought Dante's Inferno, Castlevania Lords of Shadow, El Shaddai, Evil Within 1, Ghost Recon Future Soldier and a few movies for a total of 20 euros. GRFS was only 50 cent (!!).

Playing Alienation.

I want to play this though. It's another twin stick shooter.


if you guys know any good ones let me know. I have all the ones from Housemarque, Enter the Gungeon and Ruiner. I won't like them if they're boring military looking ones though.

I looked into Assault Android Cactus and might try it but it looks too simple and not much weapon or ability variety. I'll grab it if it's on sale though.

You ever tried Fantasy Zone? Not twin stick but more classical, though it is pretty unique since you can go left and right.

@Birdman: Just Twin Sticks? Any perspective in mind(isometric/horizontal/vertical)? On foot or in a vehicle if that matters to you?

—>Onimusha Warlords
Beat Onimusha 1 for the 1st time a week or so ago, in 2013 I played all the way until the second to last boss but couldn’t beat them as I lacked healing items and sucked. Not much of an issue this time(blocking is fairly OP even against some bosses, not mentioning counter attacks which I’ve yet to master). Was a very concise game.

—>Onimusha Genma
Moved part way into Onimusha Genma, thankfully you can skip most cutscenes and it has a 60hz option. I like the changes to enemy placements, level/item layout. The green balls that you have to mash away from enemies before they devil trigger upon consuming it is neat, makes regular fight more challenging/annoying. That floating doll was a novel nuisance, i’ll enjoy killing her when I can(don’t tell me if you can/can’t).

Just Twin Sticks?
Before I made that post, I looked up the definition it seems to mainly peryain to the top down view.

Resogun and Matterfall are side scrollers though but still count.

So I guess if you can move in any direction while firing in any direction.

So like Ruiner which you are well familar with. By the way I didnt understand a single bit of the story. Want to explain it? If you do, do so in the dedicated topic.

As for the character, I dont know. Just let me know if you have any recommendations and I'll look into them.

I think there's a Tomb Raider game like this but I dont know if it's twin stick or just like Diablo. Will watch a review.

Not much of an issue this time(blocking is fairly OP even against some bosses, not mentioning counter attacks which I’ve yet to master).
Marcellus? The big guy with the shield and after breaking it he pulls out dual swords? He's got a few dangerous move because he can lock you in block and follow up with an unblockable. Strangely he is the only boss you can issen, and only the blocking version on only one of his moves.

before they devil trigger upon consuming it is neat, makes regular fight more challenging/annoying.
Something I need to revisit and test. Their DT not only makes them stronger but also some attacks if blocked put you in a heavy block state. Some may be unblockable but I dont remember.

78 Re: What are you playing right now? on Wed Aug 01, 2018 1:52 pm

Back in Warlords and Genma the Issen-system was more a nice extra for expert players I feel than a core mechanic. Which I think is why they added the charged attack system with the multiple uses in Genma. I liked how you could smartly spend your own 'DT' to One Combo Kill certain bosses even on the hardest setting if used smartly. I remember going for a max rank run and the whole game was about playing optimal. Knowing what fights to use what magic and where to use certain items or the infamous DT, how to avoid everything with the female character etc.

Very well made game over-all imo. I'm kind of pissed I never recorded my max rank run at the time since a lot of my experience with the game has been lost for some reason, I can't remember half of it.

Knack 2 getting high scores and Guacamelee on the side, first playthrough (using the code for hard mode) and messing around with combos.

Been too tired to play much during the week due to work but I plan to finish it tomorrow and unlock all the moves then have a look at those challenges.
