All video games must have the same UI now. There's a lot of western devs that think game design isn't about creating unique experiences, but about reaching the singularity of game design, the one true correct way to make a game. You see this every time a game doesn't follow the formula and they get mad.

What would you change about it? I don't have a great aesthetic sense but it doesn't strike me as bad, just uninspired. It's reasonable to think a conventional, easily understood style would emerge the same way wasd-movement and escape/start menus have, being less about zeroing in on the one true game and more about using a risk-free, legible design to devote more development resources elsewhere.

Kojima is still stuck on Metal Gear, and he will double down on Death Stranding 2. The gameplay it's cool, unique and fun. The story should have been more focused and humanistic. Long cutscenes should have been left on Metal Gear Solid.

 No.28753

>>28703
I dunno if I agree on the cutscenes, but I think the constant grinding dilutes the story beats. I mean it's supposed to be a distributed task, irt building roads, but that system is broken, it doesn't work, so it means grinding.

Right but still I came up with a fucking plot in like 10 mins of survival horror. Linking up the ideas from the KoTOR games having the Star Forge Slowly Rebuilding itself, calling to unsuspecting victims turning them into hive mind like zombies while on the Planet its still primitive with the Rakatans still an extremely hostile race. While everything around Rakata Prime is ship graveyard.

New trailer dropped. Cringe chosen one narration, but gameplay looks really fun. The vibe I get from it is trying to be to Skyrim what New Vegas is to Fallout 3 (i.e. hopefully making it good).
Also its rather striking how pretty and intriguing the world looks, despite being generic fantasy, in sharp contrast with Bethesdas Starfield, which is sci-fi filled with the most boring alien planet designs imaginable.

So it's hub based like The Outer Worlds was. Some of the later areas were very undercooked in that game, hopefully they got more money and dev time with this one.

No its not. Some of it was fucking esoteric, like I had wildlife AI mod, so that animals behave like animals and not like video game enemies, which worked fine on its own, but broke hostile NPC AI (not wildlife, that worked fine, just "people" enemies) when used with other mods. After a whole day of experimenting, I figured out that the culprid was a texture mod. Like how? How does that cause anything?

That just means you've never played Witcher 1 or 2 then lol.

Witcher 1 is a weird turn based/live action eurojank mixture that is somehow even less interesting than Witcher 3's combat.

Witcher 2 is super consolized (you can't take potions mid battle, for instance) and yet has absurd difficulty for much of the early game since enemies do 600% more damage if they hit you in the back once and your initial rolling distance is pathetic meaning vs. crowds you have to cheat hard and use the environment to avoid getting gangraped.

Thronebreaker is genuinely fun CCG combat though but I ranked it below 3 since most people don't like card game combat.

But in any case just on story alone Witcher 2 all and nothing will ever top it.

>That just means you've never played Witcher 1 or 2 then lol.
In fact I did. Second one had better combat, but more importantly, I interpreted "gameplay" as not just combat, but overall gameplay experience. Sure, Witcher 1 combat is what it is, what can you even add about it, but you know what else? Well designed map, sense of progression, engaging quest with meaningful decisions.

I was bored to sleep playing Witcher 1. Witcher 2 has the greatest amount of cool and hard choices you can make. 3 didn't have good choices but at least 3 didn't bore me unlike 1.

 No.28691

>>28690
Witcher 3 is the worst case of level scaling/level gating I have ever seen in a videogame. I genuinely dont get what were the designer thinking when they decided to make all equipment scale to the level, thus assuring you can never get a good item, just always average. Or enemy levels being completely unrelated to creature type, meaning you can easily defeat griffons and basilisks but get one shot by a drowner 30 levels above you.

 No.28692

>>28691
Kek if level scaling pisses you off you should try Diablo 4. All enemies auto scale to your level and all your drops are always below your level and the only good items are legendary ones which have a 0.00001% drop rate that you need to farm 20 hours for each. At least with Witcher 3 you're given treasure maps to unlock the max tier witcher armor and you can easily find everything you need.

You're being too harsh to a pretty decent game. I don't hate Nintendo games themselves, they are fine.

BOTW had zones where it was constant 15 fps.
TOTW doesn't have those zones but it has sporadic frame drops when using the Ultra Hand and in some villages.

 No.28627

I think that TOTK is better than BOTW. But I don't feel like the people that say that it is impossible to come back to BOTW now after playing the new one. At the end of the day, they have different vibes. BOTW is about nature, lonlyness and exploring a new world. TOTK is about mastering the world with the help of newfound powers and friends.

 No.28628

>>28627
This is true. I wonder how much of BotW's vibe was a deliberate choice and how much was coping with not finishing stuff on time. It did end up working to their advantage though.

 No.28636

>>28628
I think it was intentional. Just like the island on TOTK. The devs said that at first when they were testing the new mechanics, they filled the entire sky with islands. But then they realise that players would get lost between puzzles, so instead they opted for the archipelagos. Although I don't know if the Switch would have been capable of that.

Post-Apocalyptic retro-futuristic cyberpunk/western hybrid game about being a bounty hunter. Basically the Mandalorian but cyberpunk.

Anyone else looking forward to this? Is this the next Cyberpunk 2077 but with (hopefully) a better release?

To be honest, by this point the genre has been pretty much reduced to a package of aesthetics and tropes for more conventional sci-fi works to parody and adopt. Straightforward and truly dystopian cyberpunk that primarily focuses the themes of alienation and social inequality wrought by a new wave of rapid capitalist industrialization is pretty rare nowadays.

Because it's cool and ads unique gameplay opportunities? If anything, SimCity and The Sims are the games that will only be better with multiplayer in theory. EA's castrated studios just suck at making games now (Respawn's games are a rare exception).

Fun fact: Cities Skylines is apparently available on GNU/Linux. WTF?

It's actually way better than integrating DRM into the software IMHO. Because holy cow, Denuvo and proprietary spyware can kiss my ass.

The only issue is that you can't run your own servers. And that was really bad for WoW, Blizzard was just banning private servers left and right while their offering was bullshit.
