I've been thinking about getting a new console but I'm not sure about what console to buy. The new Xbox and Playstation are out of the question, most stuff that comes out on those consoles will come out on PC sooner or later and good PC parts aren't that expensive anymore if you look closely or just wait a little.
So I've been thinking about getting one of the consoles mentioned in the title.
I'm currently leaning a lot to the Wii U since you can play Wii games and games like SSB and Mario Kart are exclusive. Vita doesn't let you play PSP games instead you have to buy them in the store. Not that I had a PSP to begin with but still. The 3DS is region locked and I already have a NDS that is NOT region locked. While the Wii U is still region locked at the moment the pressure will hopefully get to Nintendo.
What do you think? What console have YOU got?!
It somewhat depends on the type of games you're looking for.
I have a 3DS, which has great stuff like Shin Megami Tensei 4, Ace Attorney 5/Dual Destinies, Etrian Odyssey, Virtue's Last Reward (also available on Vita), as well as classic Nintendo stuff like Super Mario 3D Land and Yoshi's Island 3D. The eShop kind of sucks, especially when it comes to virtual console releases.
The Vita has great games in the PSN store, like a wide selection of some of the best PS1 and PSP games available. Some of the regular games for Vita are quite good, especially with the Grim Fandango remake coming in the near future.
There's not that much I know about the Wii U since neither I nor anyone I know has one, but I think it looks quite promising. With some of the announcements at E3 this year, I think it's gonna be pretty sick. Not to mention, the eShop on the Wii U is much better than on the 3DS, especially the Virtual Console which has GBA and SNES unlike the 3DS, so you can get Earthbound and Mega Man Battle Network!
All three systems have Netflix, so if that's the kind of thing you're looking for, you have nothing to worry about.
eventually i bought a Vita for 110 bux and installed an ARK. I'm happy with that
No more heroes
I like how its a satire on "EPIC" plots in general not just games.
But I still consider Killer7 as a better game despite the change from its original script . Cant wait for
Flower, Sun and Rain in October so I can get some sort of understanding of his Kill the Past series.
San Andreas isn't that large, 50-100 for post-game at most.
Took down Ninja Gaiden. Without save states.
The most recent game I've finished is Serious Sam 3. I had never played a SS game before that one. It's insane, like a bullet hell in first person.
I never thought about it this way. But true, it's quite danmaku like. Also you might like "Tower of Guns", that's actually really danmaku/bullet hell game in first person.
Just beat Sonic Adventure 2 Battle!
did you get all the emblems and all that? I swear you could put 100 hours into SA2B
Holy Crap Congrats!, I've been trying to do that for years
I just finished Terranigma and oh boy was it fun. It's been a long time since I've played an offline game, I'm glad that I'm getting back into it. Cleared it in 18h40min at Lvl31. The thing that was kinda disappointing was that I accidentaly overleveled at some point so up until the last boss I basically one hitted every mob and killed every boss in 1 - 3 minutes tops. The last boss was kinda harsh if you don't know what to do at first and the final form battle was also really long for a change, I liked it. I can't put my feeling into words properly, if you haven't played that game you definetely should.
Will buying a Wii-U help me sleep with teenage girls?
I remember when I was sixteen I went over to a girls house under the pretense of playing Mario Party and then I fucked her.
So...does that still happen? Which of these will help me? http://www.listnerd.com/list/best-mario-games I just know chicks get fuckin wet for Mario
One of the Mario Party or Mario Kart installments, I suppose. Something that gets you goofing around with an MP match.
Not that I've ever tried this method.
why would you want to have sex with teenage girls they are annoying and clingy
seducing teen girls is illegal and will get you thrown in prison. then you have to worry about the tossed salad man raping you up the ass!
Does anyone here game in Linux at all? If so, what games do you run, native or emulated (Wine/Crossover), and where do you foresee the future of gaming on Linux?
Lately, I've been using Wine to play a handful of games. Right now I'm getting Skyrim onto this machine through Crossover. I think the future of gaming on Linux is going to start looking good, with Gabe Newell talking about Linux being the future of gaming and the soon to be unveiled "Steam Box", which has been rumored to run some variant of Linux (Probably Ubuntu)
I game only on Linux now. Mostly just playing Steam games, since that's what I played on windows anyway.
Also I play Quake Live sometimes.
I play Tuxcart Racer, does that count?
Valve's Linux based OS looks really promising. Back when I ran kubuntu, all I played were dungeon crawlers like DCSS and emulated consoles.
This probably has to do with Debian being one of the more pedantic "Free Software" distros out there. Try Mint.
I love roguelikes, Cataclysm DDA: is really good and DCSS is my favorite
Outside of roguelikes, I play emulated games and a remake of Command and Conquer: Red Alert called OpenRA which I have been having a blast with
I can't get my games to work most of the time. I need to find a solution to this
Getting Quake 3 to run on Linux was a pain in the ass, since the best version doesn't have an executable on any repository and has to be manually installed and linked to the appropriate libraries, but it was worth it. Quake/QW was much easier to get running. Those are about the only games I've played much recently, besides roguelikes.
What do you guys think of Augmented Reality games? Is it the future? Maybe not but we are moving in teh right direction,
This one looks way better then current augmented reality game,it's a RPS/hack n slash survival
H Y P E
Augmented Reality rpg/hack n slash survival
What do you guys think of AR games? Is it the future?
oops posted in the wrong place
I just got a Minecraft card code for free! :D http://linkbitty.com/FreeMinecraft
in the 'south park' episode didn't they need to tame a horse in mine craft to unlock the crime show channels?
Remember when people realized that Minecraft was an overhyped, unfinished piece of indie trash?
I'm actually one of the first 10,000 to buy that game. It was around the beginning of 2010, but I was following it for months before that.
It's sad how much potential was wasted. It could've been a 3D Dwarf Fortress. Instead we got glorified lego.
why is the new tomb raider rated mature instead of only teen? does it have more violence or is it because lara croft finally takes her top off and reveals her huge boobs for all the perverts out there? or they finally added those fabled nude codes that the fan boys have been asking for all this time.
> Content Descriptors: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language
> Other: Includes online features that may expose players to unrated user-generated content (Windows PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)
> Rating Summary: This is an action game in which players assume the role of a young explorer named Lara Croft who investigates a mystery surrounding an ancient queen. As Lara, players explore caves and ruins, and use arrows, firearms (e.g., pistols, shotguns, machine guns), and bladed weapons to battle wild animals, human enemies, and demonic soldiers. During several sequences, Lara is depicted getting stabbed, beaten, strangled, or shot by enemies; these close-up deaths occur as fail scenarios, usually when players miss certain action cues. A handful of cutscenes also depict enemy characters shot at close range. Large blood-splatter effects occur when characters are hit; one level depicts a demonic lair covered in dismembered human corpses--scattered limbs and pools of blood are prominent. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” can be heard in the dialogue.
> The content of this game is suitable for persons aged 18 years and over only.
but with the m rating how will the game get to the target audience of horny teenage boys who love lara's titties?!?
this one look like the bestest tomb raider EVARZ!!!1
There was a thread like this in /anime/ and, although it seems to have died from lack of interest, I liked it. Let's try it here.
For instance, assuming >>0's favorite is THE GAME: What fun is a game that can't be won? Also, you just lost it.
My favorite: Metal Gear Solid 3
No protracted arguments in this thread please, just keep it going.

Sellout roguelike that never open-sourced and is now going on assReam.

Oh ho, those silly players found another method to win more than 10% of the time? Time to nerf the shit out of this one too.
Nonsensical mishmash of Tolkienian lore without being very faithful to any of it. And if you miss an artifact it's gone for good.
