Resident Evil 4 HD edition Or whatever

>Shooting mechanics: Hold down the right-click button to enter aim mode. During aim-mode, mouse movement will be used to control the laser pointer.

Answers from the devs on other things:

I'm looking forward to this since it was a grape game, but kind of ruined by the shitty controller mechanics and it was even worse on the PC port. It also supports "60FPS" whatever difference that will make, I don't know.

>criticize a game's movement

>"I never said that was a problem I was criticizing the game's camera"

It's pretty obvious that you didn't give the game a chance. Saying RE4 is bad because you can't twitch shoot makes just about as much sense as saying Super Mario Bros should have morality choices. It's not what the game is going for, and if the argument was valid then that would mean Dragon Age 2 is a better game than Super Mario Bros.


I didn't have a problem with the game either. If they included strafing it would have been too easy.

You're bad at the game. Don't blame the mechanics. You can say you don't like the mechanics, but that doesn't mean you're not bad at the game. Just admit it was too difficult for you.



I think the only people that found her annoying were the Japanese people trying to get panty shots.


>Saying RE4 is bad because you can't twitch shoot makes just about as much sense as saying Super Mario Bros should have morality choices.
But I never said it was bad I loved the atmosphere and played through a lot of it with my cousin, it was one of my favourite res evil games. I just didn't like the movement


Sounds like a problem with the camera position. Might be possible to move it further away with some tricks.

I just remembered that I own this game thanks to Microsoft's Games for Gold deal, but do you have to have played the first game to know what is going on in this one or is this one standalone as I heard III and IV were?

RETRO games are fine maybe even preferred because they are cheaper/easier to download.

By action I simply mean no strategy/RTS/Sim City types. Something for a person short on time or with ADHD.
-Hydro Thunder (1999, superb 3d racing in water)
-Crimson Skies (1998, air-combat with great storyline)

>Metal Gear Solid series director Hideo Kojima has issued a statement addressing concerns over the length of the coming Metal Gear Solid 5 prologue chapter, Ground Zeroes, assuring that the final product will encourage replay due to its "freedom of approach and play style."

>A report from the latest issue of Game Informer pegged Ground Zeroes' campaign at around two hours in length. Kojima explains that the game's breadth of content, which includes a collection of side missions and an online-ranked trial mode, will keep players occupied long enough to justify its $40 retail price point.

>"This is not a linear game like the past," the statement reads. "[Ground Zeroes] offers freedom of approach and play style, which we hope players will enjoy over and over without [becoming bored]. I believe people will be satisfied with the 'Play Time' of Ground Zeroes and not stress the 'Clear Time,' which is a standard for linear games."


It doesn't help that MGS V: Phantom Pain doesn't look like it's coming until December 2015 or October 2014

The MG series should just fucking die.

Isn't it enough what they did to Solid in 4? Do we really have to do it to Naked as well?


Yeah I thought they would have ended it after 4 too. The new Fox engine does seem cool though.


It's stupid, interesting engine or not prequels universally suck IMO because you already know how everything turns out so it's inane to play what amounts to filler.

I also find it distasteful how the nips seem to make everyone half nip the more the series progressed.


Oh god.

It's getting the GTA service.

Still won't be as bad as that 20 minute cutscene in the of act 3


Prequels are annoying, but they sort of dug a hole with MGS4. They could make a new main character, but that would just cause butthurt like last time.

>I also find it distasteful how the nips seem to make everyone half nip the more the series progressed.

That one is strange.

Oh boy.

Yo, you guys should really check out Loadout.

It's on Steam, and it's F2P

Some nice humor, and it's twitch-based, and not Pay-to-win at all.

They don't have a clan system yet, but when they do, let's have a [Chon] clan, yes?

The matchmaking and servers right now are absolute shite though, worst launch ever.

The weapons customisation isn't too bad, giving you a little bit to change and sort to your comfort.

All of the things you buy with real money are just cosmetic and the real weapon buffs are done by earning them.

Red Orchestra 2 is pretty chatty if that's what you mean, but not just garble garble nonsense. And if it is you can block peoples mics easily enough.

Wargame ALB has a nice chatroom feature too.

Counter Strike.

Insurgency is ok too, faster paced but with a bunch of borderline xbox fags.


Seconding Project Reality and Natural Selection 2.

Sadly most good PC MP FPSes are long-dead HL & HL2 mods. I enjoy slumming it in Battlefield 3.

Are there any games like The Hunger Games a where you have to win over sponsors and allies for aid you in the arena?

I mean games besides Minecraft.

Are there also any games that is heavily focused on the bow and archery so one could feel like Katniss Everdeen?

Is the new Tomb Raider game really bow-centric?

Human (Nord)
Or possibly Wood elf or Cat.

There's also this character preset


Isn't it getting dangerously close to being furry if one makes Lara Croft a feline?


For some reason, I was thinking Imperial.
Lara isn't that tall is she?

And that character preset is a companion mod.


I see.
I didn't really read it to be honest.
She's not all that tall, but if you want to make her you'll need to have a mod that gives you more control over character creation.

I was just going by stats/what the races stereotype role is.
By looks I'd go with Nords or Bretons.

Dear /v/,

I finally got my hands on a copy of BF4.

I've been waiting for this for some time, but in playing over the past couple of days, I have noticed that one needs a proper clan/group to play with. That being said, I have only Xbox360 to play this on.

Can we get a Feel for battle thread? Also, BF4 General, tips, strategies, and loadout advice welcome.

For those of you interested in playing, I don't care what your skill level is, as long as you can move, shoot, and communicate, I'd love to join you.

>Reading dialogue
>Watching cutscenes

How often do you watch cutscenes in games, 4chon? Do you skip whenever possible, or just those that drag on for too long?

How much do you care about the plot of a game? Do you skim over dialogue, or do you diligently read through it?

As for myself, I always watch all cutscenes and thoroughly pay attention to dialogue in first playthroughs, though I almost always skip at least some non-gameplay segments in any later playthroughs.


If I want to know properly what's going on, I read dialogue entirely. If not, I just look at it for a second or two and take in just keywords like locations and names. If it's something I've seen before and I don't care about the voice acting, I just skip right past it.
I do watch most cutscenes if I haven't seen them before. I didn't watch the first few cutscenes in The Witcher 2 though.
One exception of this is the Mass Effect series where neither watch cutscenes or read dialogue.

With newer games you can easily guess roughly what's going on without paying attention to anything and sometimes you get large annoying indicators telling you exactly what to do.
Skyrim is especially bad at this with the quest markers telling you exactly where something is. There was no need to search for the priest of Arkays amulet at all since it had a big unmissable arrow telling you exactly where it is.


If they are worth watching, sure
If i don't like the cutscenes, why am i even playing the game?

However when its dialog text, really long stuff, i tend to just fly over it.


File: 1391285483748.jpg (65.39 KB, 570x402, 1390981435656.jpg)

depends on the relevancy, quality of the cutscene, the game itself, the pacing, the structure, the value
you'd have to be extremely stupid to actually go through every cutscene of every game, the majority of them simply don't hold up. It's like 100%'ing every game. Only the incredibly dense and those using video games as nothing more than timesinks participate in such vulgarity


>How much do you care about the plot of a game? Do you skim over dialogue, or do you diligently read through it?
I used to be really bad for it, but with a game like GTA5 I was really hooked on the story and characters I ended up watching every cutscene and paying attention.

I find walls of text put me off in video games, not because I have a problem with reading necessarily but just because of all the video games that exist, what percent of them have walls of text worth reading? Probably not a lot.

Games seem to try to take themselves too seriously now and I hate it when they don't let you skip cutscenes. Sometimes I don't give a fuck what story they've made up to fit around their generic shooter, I just want to play the game. Like when I played fucking Tom Clancy's GRAW2 I just did not give two shits what generic lame ass story he had written surrounding the game, but I had to sit through cutscenes about how the mexican president is assassinated or some garbage made up political back story, then also get put through made up back story for characters I don't give a feces about.


I watch and read everything the first time, but if it's a second playthrough, then I'll most likely skip them.
