Finally getting around to Saint's Row 4 and loving the dubstep gun

 

Been playing it as well.  I know folks are all about Watch Dogs right now, but SR4 is just on a different level from all the other sandbox games.  

 

 

I've tried going back to it a couple of times, but I feel it's a regression from the previous game in almost every way. It starts off well enough but once the superpowers came in, the gameplay completely fell apart. In the end I think I'd rather play SR3 over than play SR4.

 

Identifying a couple of the bigger complaints I guess - the almost complete loss of visibility and positional sense during fights due to the super sprinting ability (and the expectation that it be used), and the platforming bits, notably tower climbing.

 

 

 

I have started a second playthrough of SR4 and am having a lot more fun than I feared I'd have. I am so not gathering all the clusters again though ;)

 

I liked it, but I'll have to agree with Humanoid - the powers basically took some of the fun out of the game. I loved customizing bikes, cars etc, but they were beyond redundant.

 

It was a very succesful jab at Infamous, The Matrix and Prototype and I thoroughly enjoyed it for that, but gameplay wise it suffered compared to SR3.

And back to playing Distant Worlds, reloaded before the pirates raped me and managed to take them out by being patient and letting them attack outlying mining facilities. As they tried to raid my world, my heavy armed fleets were ready. As they didn't have to move this time, the pirates were decimated (quite literally as about 1/10 survived).

I just got a  Nintendo handheld thingamawhatsit and I'm looking for some game suggestions

 

It came with the following three games which I know nothing about

Bravely Default

Fire Emblem Awakening

Pokemon X

 

I'm open to pretty much anything as I'm trying to branch out of the rather narrow range of games I play now which is limited to western rpgs and strategy games

 

You got there two of the best games ever released on Nintendo stuff.

 

Bravely Default is what Final Fantasy was about before Squaresoft - Enix merger. Highly recommended. And Fire Emblem has been praised on this forums so many times that even without ever playing that game, I know it is pure JRPG love.

 

Other stuff, hmm Dragon Quest IX, Final Fantasy III, Sonic RPG (last good Bioware game imo :p) and some Zelda (there are few) could be some games you might like on this handheld.

 

Other than that? If the game is made by Nintendo, there is big chance it might be very good game, most of the 3rd parties have no clue how to make good games for their systems.

 

aaaand Ace Attorney is something some people love, but no clue if it is localized in english...

Funny how you've just listed nothing but 3rd party games for a Nintendo system  ;)

 

 

Both the OoT remake and A Link Between Worlds are stunning 3DS games.  A Link Between Worlds isn't ambitious, but what it does it does EXTREMELY well.  In my books A Link Between Worlds is the best Zelda since Majora's Mask.

 

Pokemon, the two Zeldas, Fire Emblem and Default are absolutely top tier killer apps for the 3DS atm.  Luigi's mansion and a few others site at a lower tier.

SR2 was superior?

 

I would say it was...

I think SR2 has a more.. cohesive storyline in general. SR3 was a bit more patchy in that regards. But SR3 was a lot more balls out crazy in general in regards to all the things you could get up to.

Completly unable to beat this boss in Van Helsing 2. It is a huge spider that births tiny spiders. There are also half a dozen eggs that continuously birth tiny spiders. The rate these spawn is so high that they completly fill every inch of the ground, making it impossible to move and eventually taxing the system so much (as it tries to spawn basically an infinite number of spiders) that the game crawls to a slideshow of the player dying.

I'd rate SR2 among my top games ever.  It's one of the few games I've played through more than once.  SR3 and 4 are good continuations, but it's tough to live up to that.

I don't know... While SR2's story was more serious, it had some wickedly weird side-quests like a total all-murdering cop on the weirdest assignments or ****ting all over houses to lower their value that were sorely lacking in SR3.

The COPs spoof was one of my favorite mini-games in SR2; it was sorely missed in 3 & 4 for me.

 

The septic tank minigame...I never found it fun.  Had trouble keeping the controls going correctly (but I sucked at driving anyhow).

I actually like the super powers as it makes some of the more mundane activities like getting from point A to point B more interesting for me. I will admit I still drive occasionally just to listen to the radio

You know you can still listen to the radio while on foot in SR4, right?

I never did find all the "crazy" stuff in SR3 or SR4 all that fun.  Never did play SR2 after being warned off the PC port constantly, though.

was our thinking that fire emblem games were squad-based tactics/strategy rpg games with some very limited rpg elements beyond the character development/leveling options. were for hand-helds.  is the new fire emblem more o' a traditional jrpg? 

 

honest question as we hasn't played a fire emblem game since... fire emblem... the one from 2003/4ish.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Fire Emblem: Awakening is still a squad-based tactics game.  The only real choice is in matching character up in battle to develop relationships; the stronger the relationship the better stats that pairing characters up gives.  A line of friends of equal level or so to the enemy is going to squash them (provided they have decent weapons and you allow for particular class weaknesses).

 

Within the relationships are the ability to marry characters; married character's children from the future will appear in the present and can be recruited to make the army bigger and these characters have stats and skills derrived from the parents (and if the parent has been more than one class, they may have quite the skill list to inherit).

With the Pirates & Stuff DLC I once again started a new Rome 2 game. So many people rage about Rome 2, but for me, it's currently my most played game since last september. Steam says 150 hours, which is quite a lot for me.

Why not both? Cowboy Repeater needs only 25 in guns, .357 bullets are plenty and it's effective all-rounder even without the cowboy perk. With that you can pour most of your skill points into energy weapons and go nuts.

Hmm, maybe I'll try that. Medicine Stick and a Gatling Laser sounds fun.
