LMAO @ the passive-aggressive stalinoid rant




I have never seen shittier player tracking in my life and even worse like nearly all enemies and half the bosses are exactly like this holy fuck


Idk what you mean by player tracking, but that entire fight looks so sluggish and clunky. Never been able to get into soulsborne for that reason, liked the world, wanted to learn more about it, explore, but the combat is just not fun.


Player tracking in games refers to how good actors in the game world are able to adjust their behaviour based off their position and movement. In souls series with an exception of blood borne tracking is generally fucking terrible and NPCs can be found frequently swinging at nothing and regularly missing attacks because their ai isnt coded to account for the player moving behind or openly running away from them in most instances.
Sekiro also has this, not because of the ai itself but because of how fast sekiro as a character actually is overrides the tracking present in ai which is why you can find similar jank in the OP in speed runs of the game


what am i supposed to infer from this video, i think the tracking when he lands is pinpoint to the point of unfairness, while the rest of his attacks track your position from an hour ago, anyway the dragon fights in elden ring are horrible tripe, but placidusax makes up for all of them sucking balls.


Still infinitely better than skyrims


The slow paced almost turn based aspect of the combat made things slow enough that I could better understand how to use rolls and heals than just mindlessly spam them in other action games, coupled with the enemy tracking made me focus more on actually engaging than constantly trying to run around or straight up run away from enemies to get them to miss for a free hit.

Even if it’s not the most loved ARPG for what it’s associated with it’s still my personal favourite:)

pretty sure it's Dirty Sprite tho


damn I always thought it was Dirty Souls 2 and Dark Sprite 2 more ya know


>this game encourages turtling a lot
lol wut? DS2 was the game to encourage turtling the least, it was way more viable in 1.

Lifegems are also just nice because they are impractical in combat but can heal chip damage outside of it, using them excessively is basically just a "I'm shit at the game" tax but with a viable backup (estus flasks) so its not Demon Souls levels of ass. It basically fills the niche of miracle spells like regeneration, just costing money instead.


Dark Souls 2 GANG rise up. I love DS1 and DS2 (and DS3 but only parts of it).


yeah I replayed ds3 and it kinda sucks for 60% of it.
Ds3<Ds2=Ds1<Elden Ring<<<<<<<<<Sekiro

Yeah I think it's mostly a multiplayer shooter, so one team plays as the Vietkong.


Star Wars Squadrons free on Epic right now.


Kerbal Space Program and some Shadow Tactics game free on Epic right now.

Steam removed the fucking "-no-browser" option in its shitty client that actually made it usable. Does anybody know a workaround or something
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


is it still broken on arch? i moved back to windows because it was broken as hell every week or so


by the way, I used to use steam on the legacy small mode or whatever, or launch games with lutris. not ideal at all but i was still able to launch games


Huh? I've never had any problem with the client especially on Linux (Valve being one of if not THE most supportive platform when it comes to Linux). What exactly are you trying to do ? The default client has several options from "small mode" to "big picture" to the various forms for the standard client + mods to it etc… so what do you need it to do?


Without >>26005 the main area of the client (dependent on steamwebhelper.sh) is black and unresponsive. Steam also never properly reaps its children, so I need to kill them myself on each exit.


what is the point of using no browser in it? use manjaro and the program works fine for me, never a single issue with it.

The updating process is so weird compared to windows and it is like it works seperately from the package manager. Can anybody explain this?


It’s bad but not because the lands this company makes are barren in content but the content in it is badly designed.

Let’s look at the outpost system found in AC games, these outposts are randomly scattered across each map, generally really small when put taken into account which makes upfront combat in them tedious due to how cramped close encounters become all while these same outposts have nothing functionally unique to separate them from each other due to being too physically small for anything noteworthy to be found in them DESPITE the size and land available for the devs to use to fix this issue. The reason why this exists is due to the development team that designs these worlds not adapting to games outside of far cry with open world design in other genres

I am fairly sure geography of DS2 not making sense is purposeful design choice, and pretty cool one in my opinion.

The problem with open world design is that for some time that is synonym with big, flat, empty. Gothic 2 is over 20 years old and still has the best designed open world I have experienced. Very small, you can walk across entire map in 10 minutes, but so dense and 3 dimensional. Full of ravines, valleys, hills, caves, ridges, and every place had something in it, some little thing for player to discover. Beautiful.


>I am fairly sure geography of DS2 not making sense is purposeful design choice, and pretty cool one in my opinion.
No, that was an hbomberguy invention, DS2 devs have stated that it was a compromise due to time constraints


>The problem with open world design is that for some time that is synonym with big, flat, empty.
This is true, open worlds don't need to be big. Morrowind is also small but its paths are windy to go around mountains and stuff, very efficient use of space makes the game feel a lot more bigger than it is. ER repeating bosses make it feel smaller despite the map being substantially big.


Devs are learning tho. We already know that the GTA VI map won't be gigaenormous and that they are focusing in density of content, not size.


Well in Skyrim's case didn't the large amount of space between stuff mean that local areas could be loaded individually, saving resources, and yet at the same time load limited textures of far away assets(LODs if that's the right word?) to make the world seem expansive while keeping resource use at a minimum? I think it actually turned out pretty well in some ways.

theres more similarities than just that

> Sage is also voiced by the same actress who played Rei in the English and Japanese dub. Not to mention her hair is similar to Rei

Is this genre dead or what? At best we get reboots, like the upcoming Age of Mythology: Retold

That Falling Frontier games looks pretty epic, reminds me of another RTS classic, picrel
lol, relatable. I stink at RTS games; just like watching them. I mostly just playing custom games on Age of Mythology
>Battle for Middle Earth
theres another gem, gonna have to replay that
Ya that makes sense, bummer though. I suppose mobile games eats into that market share further


They're all variations on Warcraft/StarCraft or Age of Empires


I've never played the AOE campaign. I played the Age of Mythology campaign but it was somewhat boring. There's really few things like the soviet campaign of Red Alert 2 with the live action videos and shit. That was so fun. Plus the gameplay was really cool. AOE is fine, but the gameplay feels more "generic", maybe because I've played it so much.

In RA2 you had tesla coils, blimps, cool shit like that.


been looking for friends to consistently play brood war with. its been like a decade. please. i beg of you. its the only multiplayer game i give a shit about.


Hmmm… I could sign up for this.

We are never gonna get an ending considering how the leftist devs got fucked by porkies…


I wish you could get an ending where you dump the cargo crate holding the Mega-Rich-Lightbending-Guy into the ocean.
