What did you think of this game? Are the other worth it? What analysis can we make out of it?

I just beat it because I forgot I had it and it was great

Gameplay isn't that incredible, in the end it's still just a RPG Maker game, but the way it's used is interesting. In Painful you don't have any good or bad choices, the game will just try to be cruel with you (by removing your arm thus decreasting you attack permanently for example, in the scenario you have the choice between this and killing your ally). I didn't find it as hard as people claim it to be though, the endgame is surprisingly easy (again I think it was intentional).

Nice! Seeing Brad with an apple made me smile.

>>3376
She was never allowed to call him dad or seeing him as such growing up, he did drugs in front of her and forced her to kill people at a young age. She never got to discover the world or get in touch with others. Once she was kidnapped she realized how fucked up her situation was (in absolute, it's not more fucked up than any other options she has imo). I guess her goal was to get away from him and finding her own identity as soon as she knew this was possible. She probably doesn't have a lot of empathy as a (abused) child and even if she says she understood Brad's trauma, that's false. He never told her about Lisa.
Her character isn't that great or even likeable, but it's not a typical brat either. I don't get what are Austin's views of his female characters though, as he said that Lisa was the one behind all the mess in Painful.

Just listened to a bunch of old Sonic soundtracks and felt pretty nostalgic.

Thought we could have a thread to sperg out about nostalgia. What old games from your childhood do you feel nostalgic about?

The activity of tossing it is a game. Projectile can be anything. VR is more analogous to the real world and its laws of physics that allow you to play.

What do you think constitutes great level design? Let's put together some examples of levels we really like and see if we can't figure out something in common between them.

The level should have shortcuts that are opened up through progress. This cuts down travel time as the game progresses and gives the player a sense of pride and accomplishments.

Only good part of this piece of shit game
>>3258
I mean, when it comes to shmups and similar arcadey genres, level design has barely anything to do with geometry and more with how you set up the mood, the setting and encounters/obstacles for the player to struggle against, almost like you're 'directing' the action as if it was a movie. You can barely tell anything about how it plays from a static image that just shows the pretty pixels.

What is the longest game you've ever beaten [b]in a single sitting[/b]?

civilization 5
over 9 hours w/ mods, it was fun as there was always something i was planning or looking towards - eg. "if i research this and that, i can get that wonder" or "i can sense a war coming soon, i should mobilize my army and economy, maybe try and get that technology so i can get an edge in combat"
as well as constantly having to balance resources and manage my luxury resources + trading with other nations

Frostpunk in 8 hours or so.
It's basically a cinematic citybuilder. I basically lose all control when it comes to autistic building games like C:SL or Transport Fever 2. The addition of a melodrama to vindicate my autism is completely irresistable.

yes, i'd say the minimum necessary to be a central planning sim you'd have to have the inputs of employment and scarcity. Some of the challenge has to be maintaining full employment and managing resources

there is an official model of a SM64 Luigi now, which was thought to be something that no longer existed
Also the whole L is real thing, and right before this released there was that SM64 iceberg meme which likely just coincidentally happened right before this which talked about it
