The game is shockingly badly optimized. I’m not even gonna mention destiny as it’s its own cancer to the point where it’s possible to not even get past the menu screen without blowing hundreds on a new gpu and watching multiple tutorials on how to bypass apex’s weird bugs with optimization

Apex as a game has a weird bug in it where if your playing on a pc like me you can expect the server to use the CPU to render and load in everything rather than things like memory or your card(this isn’t a new bug but a consistent one that’s been reappearing in each update for years now you can inspect task manager on apex and see the difference in flu usage yourself) meaning it’s likely you’ll inevitably have to manually change the games files for it to become playable

Second the game has consistent crashing and lag problems attributed to two reasons
The overwhelming majority of online games have terrible support for people with internet speeds below 30megabytes/s
The overwhelming majority of online games run on shit servers that weren’t built or programmed to handle a specific game. This gets especially terrible in shooters like apex where your constantly moving while the server is constantly handling shit like physics and where a bullet and a player are supposed to be and when your combining a terrible program that makes the clients performance terrible expect what everyone got with f76, where the servers instability indirectly breed bugs like
>seeing your team mates t posing while running
>seeing enemies randomly teleporting along with rag dolls not spawning where they should be or clipping through geometry
>hearing the sound of specific attacks and actions before the animation or even input on them play
>crashing randomly mid game or being sent back to the lobby for whatever reason
>somehow experiencing major drops in frame rate during loading screens
And these are just the bugs I could find after playing for only an hour whom most was spent trying to see if I could even get the game to run consistently and that’s not even the worst part about this games piss poor optimization but also for the fact that it’s an online game it has little support for online play

There’s no offline support for training mode which is fucking idiotic to think about. And no unlike Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I can tell that if you use in-game voice chat any time, you're a lost cause since it implies you don't have friends. This isn't an excuse per se, but why don't you just get some friends? All these complaints are only because you're playing with other friendless retards. Likely some mexican obese 10 year old.

The overwhelming majority of gacha games get ignored and if this one gets flat out obliterated by sheer luck, the one that was looking like it was legitimately gonna devolve gamer standards of monetization drastically that’s a beacon of hope and an astral projection of Mao is smiling at us telling gamers to keep fighting the good fight against these scumbags

>Advance Wars: Days of Ruin
A man of exceptional taste right here. I genuinely don't get how some folks (mainly 4chinlet) claim it killed the series when:
>complains of series-staleness already occured in the last game
>lack of humour, even though it has simply moved to the War Room segments as to not disrubt the story
>when the series continued on as Bataillon Wars anyway

>>19410
Not really, you'd really have to stretch the definition of RPG elements for it to count. And in regards to cheese, yeah, a few COs in the past were pretty busted, but Days of Ruin kinda fixed that by making the majority powers requiring your CO to actually be on the field (making him a big costly target). And Infantry/Mech spam, can't forget that.

 No.19434

>>19411
Days of Ruin was as close as any of these games ever came to perfect 50/50 balance and the soundtrack was also a banger.
Outside of CO powers (Isabella/the girl with amnesia was a fucking DEMON in multiplayer and Caulder was obviously overpowered) the unit to unit interactions were amazingly well thought out. Well the ground units at least. At sea battleships were stupidly busted from what I remember.
I heard the competitive community even later came up with a balance patch to fix out the last interactions.
>>19410
Yeah there's no RPG elements, only hero units that can be destroyed (and then replaced), as well as veteran bonuses given to units that survive and kill other units.

It’s difficulty is actually balanced

Yeah I know this is weird to say but this is actually extremely hard to pull off in game design. Sekiros difficulty is balanced in the sense that to actually “get good” at the game you don’t spend your time memorizing attack patterns link in souls games or grinding endlessly for good loot like in most RPGs instead you get good by understanding the games mechanics like in fighting games considering enemy and boss attack patterns are random and respond to player behaviour not off some prescripted series of attacks making the game sometimes feel like playing against actual people. Like what happens in stalker making sure the games hard enough that you have to get better but not filled with tedious bs that only exists to make things artificially more difficult than they have to be

Because of this this means that overcoming adversities in the game is a matter of genuinely learning how to play through actually playing rather than through memorization and likewise the second playthrough is significantly easier than the first because you already know how to problem solve and respond quickly to threats rather than rely on shit like mob spawn locations or RNG to progress

 No.19416

Hot Take : Sekiro is a rythm game without a music to follow.
(also you purposefully ignore the arts that can and will demolish certain bosses because From actually like giving you a straightforward way and the try shit until you find a cheese way)

 No.19418

>>19416
No no that’s the souls series your thinking of because they do have consistent attack patterns tied to music

I’m gonna bring up Brawlhalla real quick

On the fighting games training mode there are these bots you can play against that emulate actual players, rather than having some sort of predetermined attacks their movements are in response to what the player is doing at any given time meaning if a player attacks, the bot dodges, if the player uses a heavy attack the bot counters it with a light attacks and you get it. This is how the AI in sekiro is coded aswell meaning every fight is a matter of responding quickly and aggressively enough to your opponent and understanding how to use the combat mechanics to your advantage.

And no
Unless you have a boss like genshiro cornered and keep spamming light attacks don’t expect to cheese through bosses as they can cancel their stun frames

light light,firecracker,light light,firecracker,light light firecracker. (there is also the helmsplitter or something that do big posture damage and can perma stun certains bosses)
>>19418
except if you never attack (can't really do it against the ones that keep going back and forth out of your range like the butterfly lady to be fair),and only do parries/goomba stomp/whatever the dodge forward is named,it becomes mostly about keeping on rythm with the ennemy attacks,and it's much easier than trying to actually be on the offensive (just like fighting games with too much/easy defensive options)

Oh where to start with this ancient fucking trainwreck

For one, don’t bother using the passive attack button, there’s no real “combat” in this game it’s just spam skills and watch vfx play until loot drops(don’t worry about mana as that doesn’t matter either). Passive attacks might aswell do nonexistent damage, enemies can’t block or parry your attacks, movement feels clunky as hell along with platforming sections being badly designed, for some reason the developers never bothered to implement an update where environments transition into each other meaning every time you go from one level to the next one you have to put up with a loading screen EVERY FUCKING TIME you switch to a new zone and that’s just the beginning.
Despite the fact that this dumbass title is decades old and has a shitload of regions to explore all of it feels content barren which is strange considering they add in new quests everyday meaning at any time they could’ve just recycled that content and make it better for new players to get into.
NPCs are the most lifeless and boring as shit sprites you’ll ever see in any game that straight up don’t have simple shit like non quest based dialogue options, the map is shown to you in full display meaning there’s zero sense of exploration at all to be found in this game at all nor are there secrets to be unlocked through playing, the animations on enemies is lazy and the design of them is even worse as all of them are limited to doing exactly one attack and there’s an above 90% chance that it’s not one that can fire projectiles to keep the player moving and fights more than overglorified loot piñata parties.
The UI is simultaneously the most overcluttered and useless component of the game because it’s so easy and repetitive you don’t need to see nearly all the shit on screen
The games aesthetics go either from being a fantasy setting where magic and old forms of governance dominate to some sci fi anime shit that feels like a cartoonish version of wh40k, not just in the set design but also the design of classes, like cmon I shouldn’t see a cyborg and a kinetic highschool student beating the shit out of a wizard with the powers of a god yet that’s just a common occurrence in this dumbass game
The difficulty as mentioned prior is nonexistent as the devs don’t wanna risk driving players away with actually hard shit because the games overall mechanics are so poorly fleshed out any type of difficulty in it would be less of Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I perfectly see the cheekbones and the still look a lot less uncanny than how DA:I characters turned out. The funniest thing about Bioware's characters is that they used to be pretty good in the first game, while DA:I has decided to emulate Skyrim's art direction and gave them overdone "realistic" textures that together with the rather shitty animations sent them straight into the uncanny valley.

What exactly is leftypol's response to the unrest driven by the pride event in Runescape. Considering how many young people still play it, I can safely say that any bullshit that you say about them being more progressive is just straight up wrong considering how the game was filled with protests, saying that LGBT shit is heralded by demons. Like seriously just look at the comment section here.
