Messages - Big Boss™ Remastered
Beat it on Normal. Final boss of 3 is goddamn awesome, zipping about with swords clashing and dodging in and out of each other. Immediately started the game again on hard, so this should be fun.
First one is still my favorite because of nostalgia. I used to run through the series yearly but haven't done so in a while. How much was the remaster?
Around £24 on Amazon for me. I swear it's like most of my PS4 library consists of remasters, lol.
Rathalos is a cowardly nigger. Fucker kept flying across the map the second I entered the same area as him. Tedious to wait for him to land, but on the ground he's still the same big dumb lumbering retard he was in MHF though, so a pretty easy kill overall. Next up is Diablos, shouldn't be too hard either. If I remember correctly, just bait him into charging into a wall and he'll get stuck.
Flash pods, my dude.
Never caught my interest but I don't know much about it. What's it about? Is it challenging or just kind of mindless hack and slash?Never played it
It's challenging. It's challenging in both unforgiving difficulty and the sense that if you want to get the most out of the game then you have to really be prepared to sink hours into it and learn all about the different combos, weapons, timings etc. It's possible to just sort of hack and slash your way through it, but you won't get graded very well on it. It's a series that prides itself on being as stylish as possible, and I mean that in the least pretentious and uppity way possible. The game has a style meter which you fill by stringing together different attacks, switching weapons mid combo and not getting hit at all.
After a couple of hours (or maybe even minutes, depending on how you do) it just sort of... clicks, you know? The game actually motivates you to do better, to get the best ranks possible. After a while you'll be zipping all over the place, bouncing off enemies heads for extra jump height, spinning around before finishing with a room-crossing stinger move. It can get really fucking hectic at times and if you start getting tilted you can get easily frustrated by it, but goddamn does it feel satisfying when you flawlessly clear a whole room of enemies without being touched and get an SSS rank for it.
Honestly I'm probably not even doing it much justice by talking about it, it's best experienced by playing it and giving it a chance. The first game set the stage for fast paced action games back in 2001 and by the 3rd game it's like they've perfected it to an art form. The story isn't too amazing if that's what you're after. The basic lore of the whole thing is fitting for this kind of game and the interactions between Dante and the other characters is enjoyable, but at the end of the day the gameplay is the real star.
Hope I've done a somewhat okay job of explaining how it is. If you're into action games and see it for cheap, I'd recommend it.
Here's a boss fight and accompanying cutscenes to give more of an idea what it's like. As you can see it ...doesn't take itself too seriously but it's goofy in a fun way.
Never played it
Not really interested, or just one of those things you never got round to playing?
So I picked up the HD collection this week and been giving it another whirl. I started the first one again, but goddamn it feels old now. Not that it's a bad thing, but you can definitely see it. I decided to go straight to 3 because of course that's the golden boy of the franchise and hooo boy, it's still as good as ever. The fact that the gameplay and over the top-ness is still fun as hell 13 years later is a testament to just how well designed and fluid the combat is. Being able to string together SSSTYLISH combos from loads of different attacks and timings is just so damn satisfying. When I beat it I actually want to go back and do it again on Hard just for that extra rush.
Anyone else a fan? Is it just edgy over the top bullshit? I'd recommend it to anyone who's a fan of hack and slash or action games, they're all worth a go, I think. 4 was a good...half of a game. Maybe with this recent re-release and Monster Hunter crossover they're getting us back into the DMC mood to prepare us for a new one. Who knows.
Not a screenshot but this is the thread where Fourm Tryhards BTFO'd Sapphire.
Sapphire and MLP have been 1 and 2 for about a year now. Both are more active than the Septagon.
Someone tell me if I should watch it or not: I liked DD and JJ but thought IF and and Defenders sucked.it hasnt mentioned either of those, so you're safe. there hasnt been any cross references that ive noticed. to new or old shit. just season 1 JJ
I'm on episode 3 right now and Foggy just showed up
Well sometimes it's justified. Like Palpatine's force lightning being able to hit people through walls. Of course, there's plenty of times when it's just a powerful weapon that people complain about, which leads to developers caving. I think every weapon should have its pros and cons so they are all equally valid and usable, but I guess that's not an easy thing to do, otherwise, we'd see it more.

This was quite a read. I forgot Sapphire even existed until I saw Jay posting something on Twitter. From what I gather from this thread, she's not even in it anymore?
After a horrendous episode last week I've been taking it easy for a bit. Went to visit the doctor and he recommended a stress and anxiety group to join, so that's cool. I've been talking to friends a lot more and being positive, so that weird gap in my head's starting to fill up with nice thoughts for a change. Feeling more into stuff and enjoying things again. That was like the longest week ever though, Jesus fucking Christ. Anyway, doing better now and since I like talking to friends I'm here for a bit. What's up fellas?
Hey all, just dropping in to say I'll be going for a little while. Been mulling it over for a bit and it's probably the best thing to do for the moment. I won't go into too many details but I haven't been having the best of times mentally. I went through a bit of a headfuck that left me feeling a bit lost with myself, not knowing what to do, wanting to hurt myself etc. I'm trying to make sense of it all and find a direction to head towards. I've been trying to surround myself with positivity and good thoughts and it seems to be working, I think. It's just all a bit of a mess really.
Anyway, I don't always get much happiness from being here, lately. Sometimes the shitposting and banter sort of rains on my mood and that's the exact opposite of what I need right now. I know it's all just bickering and playful banter, nothing personal but I'm not really in a good position to be dealing with that sort of thing at the moment and my emotions are all over the place so I'm at risk of sperging out and making a complete ass out of myself which I don't wanna do
I know it's just a forum full of names on the internet and doesn't really matter that much, but still I enjoyed times here, and got on well with people (even the ones I don't like so much, I still liked reading some of their posts). If I talk to any of you elsewhere I'll probably still be around, if you want to chat or whatever.
tl;dr im sad bye bye for now
I hope Dragon Ball Super's ending isn't too much of a disappointment.
I hope Halo 6 isn't too terrible.
I hope you don't sperg out again, Deci. You can do it.
I hope you find a 9/10 anime, Verb, and finish that Nuzlocke.
I hope you find a way to stop raging at games, CMD.
I hope you still enjoy PUBG, Chally.
I hope the next Fallout is up to your tastes, Fed.
Good luck with whatever it is you're up to, everyone. Whatever it is.
Good luck with drawing/animating, Snake.
you are a black peace of shit...Hey man if you enjoyed FF7 I'd highly recommend playing 9. It's my favorite Final Fantasy, hell it's just my favorite game.hahaha what a loser😂
Quite making fun of my heritage you racist piece of garbage, god.
