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.

I meant to start Doom II, but I decided to finish some of the other Mission Packs for Doom I before it. I got to the last level, or some kind of secret level, where you spawn with a shotgun and all the monsters are invisible. I never managed to beat it, I'd end up playing the level for half an hour after I ran out of ammo trying to beat up Barons of Hell with my fists. It was just taking so damn long.

>>speaking of Doom II I finally beat Plutonia on Ultra Violence.

Arch Viles are the worst.

265 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2015-04-19 17:15 ID:MYRSGjW2

Beat the Orc campaign of Warcraft II, probably not for the first time, but the first time in many years at least. Still working on the Human side.

266 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2015-04-21 22:16 ID:MYRSGjW2

And the Human campaign too. I guess that leaves Beyond the Dark Portal but I think I feel like a bit of a change of pace first.

I beat Echo Night 2, it was really good (though I couldn't find the last hiding child). Now onto Echo Night Beyond...

273 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2015-08-12 18:03 ID:YeNghG7i

I've just beat The Wolf Among Us, if you can even call that a game. It was pretty enjoyable, but I didn't like the ending. It's one of these games that rely more on the form than the plot, even though it's no more than a visual story.

274 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2015-08-13 00:15 ID:MYRSGjW2

Blade of Darkness, twice (one run as the dwarf and another as the barbarian. Only the amazon is left that I haven't beat this game with now).

Uncharted 1
Awful game, I've held out for 10 years until I finally bought a playstation to play this game and it sucked. I went into it expecting it to focus more on exploration but instead I got a boring shooting gallery. I'll be honest, I didn't know that there was any supernatural stuff in the series so when some zombies appeared I was surprised and mad because it felt like such a cheap out.
Overall I enjoyed what little puzzles and exploration there was but the game was so heavily dragged down by boring, generic shooting that I can't ever see myself playing it again.

276 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2018-12-11 13:37 ID:35F0aEwD

Uncharted 2
Against my better judgement I decided to play the next game in the series. I was told that it was a better game than the first but I honestly think I liked it less. The set pieces were cool but the shooting was so generic and boring. I hated the moment when it would throw me into a shooting gallery because it immediately slows down the game and it ruins the entire pace of whatever action was going on before. The story involves a generic Russian bad guy looking for ultimate power which I can forgive because it came out in the height of every game having Russians as the bad guy but they just made him a comically evil person who had no redeeming qualities and I couldn’t care less about the stakes of the story.
I don’t think these games are for me and I probably won’t play the last two games since I don’t expect some radically different games that will blow my mind.

Nier Automata
I'm glad I got to experience the story as I did, and I'm also glad that I was able to look up all of the different endings without having to go through all of the different shit to get them. Especially the true end. I feel bad for the characters, but Platinum did a great job. I will have to look into their other games that are on PC because the gameplay was cool and the story kept me from drifting away to other games. The plot twists were definitely my favorite part.

Super Lovely Planet, and Lovely Planet 2
Cute little games that get progressively more difficult. The music never fails to be nice, and the amount of precision the games require makes them fun. I even get some recorded world records on some of the levels! I'm sure someone's beaten them by now but it's the first time I've done anything like that, so that was exciting. I couldn't beat the original Lovely Planet though, that game was just too hard towards the end. I think I got to like level 5-20 or something before I gave up.

Just beat Megaman Zero 4. It was fun.

281 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-04-30 16:56 ID:YnvjLiXT

Beat Hexen a little while ago
I thought it was good overall but my opinion of it gets worse as the game goes on, especially once I started Death Kings of the Dark Citadel expansion. Even in the main game, I was hoping for an end by the 3rd hub and it just keeps going, there are some good levels afterwards but the 4 just feels like filler. I beat the main game with the fighter easily enough but made the mistake of trying the expansion with the mage, his ice magic is fucking garbage and it takes a long time until you get his good weapon.
I liked Heretic more at this point. At least you get more than 4 weapons at a time.

Finally got around to playing the 2013 Tomb Raider a couple months ago. The hunting mechanic felt tacked on, and the "run from cover to cover while shooting an army of bad guys" sequences were annoying, but overall it was an enjoyable game.

The last six weeks have been all about Monster Hunter: World. Started the DLC Iceborne a few days ago and I feel like the jump from High to Master is way more difficult than the jump from Low to High.

I Wanna Kill The Kamilia 2.
Search The Bread K, and most games MicroHorrorArcade and PhuCat103 played, i love this type of games. Itch io type games are very charming to me.

> mage, his ice magic is fucking garbage and it takes a long time until you get his good weapon.

Get close to enemies and chill touch them. Counter-intuitive but it works best that way.
Wand is slow to kill things, but pretty effective in larger areas against groups.

286 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-07-31 22:16 ID:palZUrTB

Addendum, also his Flechettes slay if you know how to use them. Their explosions are shield-piercing (read: hits centaurs and heresiarchs even when they're guarding).

Really a big part of sucking at Hexen or thinking Hexen sucks is down to not using the items or not using them correctly (won't defend some of the more obtuse puzzle designs tho).

287 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-08-05 13:19 ID:jK/aedkP

after a half year pause (initially interrupted by disco elysium) I finished sekiro, i was already pretty far so I only needed to do the divine dragon, demon of hatred and final boss, I am glad i pulled through, I watched a guide video for the last boss but it didn't help me whatsoever so I just made my own "strategy" which was mostly dodge to the right in phase one and then dodge to the left in phase two, phase three was praying that he does the lightning often so I can punish hard
a friend gave me shit for not learning to parry him but i already unlearned most of it due to the passage of time and frankly was never good at it to begin with so I just used whatever approach seemed natural to me, just because it's a sword fight doesn't mean your legs stop working, foot work, left right, POW right in the kisser

288 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-05 06:30 ID:jB1AcrxP

I can't remember the last time I beat a video game.

289 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-10-07 01:40 ID:3H9pVXAn

I wish they would've given the mage the thrown flechette instead of the fighter, getting close to enemies to use the dropped flechette is just a rough spot, and the ice magic even at close range isn't too great. The fighter could've worked with the dropped flechette a lot better than the mage.
Also, fuck the slaughtaurs. Annoying blocking that can reflect all but ripper projectiles, ranged attack that they can do instantly from block, looks exactly like the chump cenataur. And their everywhere in the first few DK maps like they common fodder when they are more tedious to deal with than just about any enemy in the game.

290 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-10-12 23:36 ID:vfEgKqM8

I understand why they did the flechettes that way from a theming perspective, with the mage effect being a carry-over from Heretic's timebomb where Heretic had a more magely protagonist, but that's an interesting take gameplay-wise. Hexen II had its closest mage analogue (the Necromancer) lay explosives more like a seeker mine, and the even closer mage analogue from the expansion (the Demoness) threw them as gas grenades.

291 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-10-20 17:14 ID:vfEgKqM8

Beat Monster Bash, not for the first time, but for some good Halloween season nostalgia.

Somewhat tough game, especially that swamp section in episode 3 with the moving platform jumps. Count Chuck is a pussy though.

292 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-10-28 21:52 ID:Heaven

I beat the first episode of Blood for the first time. I don't really like episode 2 so far.

293 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-10-31 06:00 ID:Heaven

There are a bunch of people in the retro FPS circles who love to fellate Blood, but they really do oversell it.

Duke 3D was better.

296 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-11-25 04:40 ID:vfEgKqM8

Mega Man for DOS. Weirdly short and features Dr. "Wiley" (not that the console entries have ever been 100% consistent on spellings either...) but not as bad as people say.

297 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-12-03 00:57 ID:vfEgKqM8

And Mega Man 3 for DOS (there was no DOS MM2 apparently). This one's more substantial, but most of the bosses are major pussies. It's alright.

298 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-12-05 04:57 ID:4Gc+6lSk

I beat Gex 64: Enter the Gecko. 100%. All remotes. The game sucks, but it holds a special place in my heart for nostalgic reasons. I owned it on the PC and rented it on the 64 a lot as a kid, because for whatever reason I didn't care that the game was on two platforms. The game really sucks. Don't play it. But if you like good bad games, it's a good bad game. The PC version is better, cutscenes and voiceacting wise, and there were a decent number of levels cut from the N64 version. I'd like to track it down and play it on my new windows 98 PC i'm building. But I can't find any copies of a physical disk anywhere in the entire world. I wonder what happened to my disk as a child? Where does this stuff go? How did I lose it? At what point in my life did I stop caring about the wise cracking gecko? At what point did I forget he existed? And why did I remember that I forgot he existed?

>>296,297 I can respect this. I've been wanting to try DOS Mega Man for a while.

Industrial Killers, a weird-ass FPS that was apparently built as a demo to showcase Pie In The Sky's 3D game creation system. Took me several tries to get the hang of it as the starting level is decidedly newbie unfriendly (it's not hard to miss out on the machine gun and if you do that's pretty much a death sentence).

The engine has some interesting/promising features it seems like, stuff you wouldn't find in Doom even though some other aspects of the engine are more primitive than that (most annoyingly, no control remapping). The game doesn't make the best use of them though and has a certain nonsensical quality to it which I have mixed feelings about. The ending is also bizarre and made me wonder if I'd done something wrong somewhere along the way, and the game as a whole was pretty short.

Pass unless you have a fetish for weird and lesser-known 2.5D games like I do.

If you want to try them, you might like to be aware of this:
Though, disclaimer, I haven't tried it, I just used my crusty 16Mhz 286 which is about the level of machine they were designed for.

Marathoned Commander Keen, including the fan-made third trilogy which I'd never played before. They're pretty well done, although 7 may be the weakest one in so far as it's the one where it's easiest to see what old enemies were skinned over to make the new ones.

Duke Nukem 2. Beat it for the first time after only having ever played the shareware episode and a little bit of episode 2. Played on easy mode this time though as the item and enemy placement tends to be more than a little trollish.

I'm still inclined to say the original Duke "Nukum" was more fun despite the sequel's added glitz and gimmicks.

I've finished beating Borderlands 2!

304 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-02-07 20:58 ID:wItEFFBZ

Just finished Pikmin 1 on the GameCube. Really great game, loved micromanaging all the Pikmin to do different tasks at the same time. Loved planning routes and figuring everything out. Though the game itself was a little on the short side. I'm looking forward to trying Pikmin 2 next once I get some free time.

I 100%'d Celeste. Took 50 hours. It was really fun. I really enjoyed the game.

306 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-02-16 12:05 ID:PRYZQSpk

Beat Black Mesa. Although it looks just slightly too modern for the engine (it's not quite "HL1 with HL2 graphics" but rather "HL1 with modern graphics), and it diverges from the original in some parts, it's still a very high-quality reinterpretation of the original game.

307 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-02-18 06:34 ID:Heaven

I quite liked BMS but nu-Xen dragged on for way too long. Doesn't really feel as creepy as the original either.

308 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-04-06 02:16 ID:1Nb7DeFd

I beat Marathon 1 and 2! The recent updates to Aleph One allow you to play them at 60 FPS. I'm playing Infinity right now and it's really interesting but the level design took a nosedive.

309 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-04-06 12:30 ID:vfEgKqM8

I should really play those some time. I've heard people who hate the engine but apparently Damage Incorporated was built on that engine too and it seemed okay to me (at least the Windows version did). Probably bitchy nitpickers who hate everything that isn't Doom, just like with BUILD games.

310 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-04-07 14:01 ID:OYozNFRs

100%'d DUSK. Fantastic game. Any old-school quake/doom/hexen etc players would feel at home.

Just wrapped up Xenogears. I'd never played it before. I can see why it's a classic, but damn if it doesn't have a lot of pacing issues.

312 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-04-25 15:53 ID:vfEgKqM8

Played through Black Crypt and ShadowCaster, first time beating either (though I'd played some of ShadowCaster before). As a big fan of the Heretic and Hexen series this was kind of a pilgrimage type thing for me.

Black Crypt was pretty good for what it was (a Dungeon Master/Eye of the Beholder follower) and most of the annoyances in it were par for the course for that type of game (inventory management juggling and the like). I do have to give it points off for having one place where you can fuck over the triggers and make a section unwinnable, which necessitated going back to an old save and redoing some stuff. Aside from that, pretty cool creature/environment/lore designs. As an Amiga game it might be a bit of a pain in the ass to emulate, your best bet is probably to grab TheCompany's repack for painless running, if you're on Windows.

ShadowCaster on the other hand had great concepts, like being able to shapeshift into various cool creatures as you progress, but felt like a showcase in game engine growing pains. Part of it tries to be like Wolf 3-D and the other part tries to be like the earlier dungeon crawlers and it results in this clunky hybrid that's not great at either, with dull combat, annoying inventory management, and even more annoying regen mechanics (the official hint book even suggests parking yourself somewhere safe and going AFK to regenerate as a legitimate strategy, FFS). It's also kind of a letdown that despite having a fully functional hub system (that remembers things that changed around the map, unlike the one in the Catacomb games that reset on every visit) they didn't implement more Metroidvania style stuff. Would have been cool if you could, for instance, go back and explore the lake in the early levels once you had the Kahpa form to swim around in. The CD version does add a couple levels that put some of the niche powers to more use, but at the tradeoff of switching the nicely illustrated intro/ending animations for awkward 3D rendered ones. The CD version also has, through no fault of its own, an issue running in DOSBox because the dumbshit DOSBox devs broke it and then never fixed it so you have to use v0.73 of DOSBox instead. The end boss is also a joke, even more than Korax from Hexen is, just turn into the Grost and punch the living fuck out of him. You'll take damage sure but at full health and with the protection amulet he'll die before you do. I usually sneer at game reboots, but this is one that I think could actually benefit from a do-over.
