Old thread is dead
What games have you been playing recently?

To start things off I guess I'll say I've been playing Sengoku Rance for the past few days.
It's a surprisingly good strategy game, if a bit lacking in difficulty beyond the weird, softer time limits you're not told much about.

I started playing La-Mulana and Corpse Party. They're both good.

So are the two people who were playing FFXIV still playing?

Finally got my card set up and my internet is semi-reliable (though still not amazing), so I might try to renew my sub if you guys are still playing.


Yes, I play nightly from around 7:30EST to 11:30EST. If you're the guy whose on my list (I'm Nizzi) next time youre on I'll invite you to our FC.


I'm the guy who played the VTE (Very Toll Elf)
I'll see if I can get on by this weekend


You're still on my list, but I'm way ahead of you now. I'm leveling Dark Knight right now and I'm 60 in Paladin.
I can help you with basically all content you'll need to do though!


Yeah I can guess honestly
If I get on I'll probably just try to power level through shit, half the reason I'm so low level is because I have like level 10 in every class instead of just buckling down and focusing im gay


Just find a class you like and stick with that through out the main story
There are a few classes that start at 30/50 like Samurai and Red Mage (starts at 50) and you just need to own their expansions to unlock them in Ul'Dah, so if you really don't want to level you could always pick those


No I'm fine with levelling, I'm just the type who likes to dabble a little

Good news: I managed to get my payment through.
Bad news: My internet is massively unstable and unlike every other MMO, FFXIV likes to crash to desktop when you disconnect instead of punting you back to login.
Good news: Ultros is still open.
Bad news: I don't know how to move characters so I had to start an entirely new character.
Good news: I still remember how to play the damned game and still had my character appearance saved.
Bad news: What's your name because I think I need to be a higher level before I can join a guild and I'm not sure how far I can level up before my internet kills me again.

Also why on Earth are these screenshots so ludicrously huge

This is the bane of my soul


Weird, I don't have that error. It just DCs me to the main menu. Do you own all the expansions?

I'm Nizzi Hylehatch, send me a friend request or post your name here and I'll add you if you can't.

Only the beginning and the end two dungeons of ARR have that fortunately.


My DCs are probably different from yours
>do you own all the expansions
Not whatever the newest one is but yes for the one for dragon girls
I wasted my free Fantasia changing my voice since the original was fucked though so I can't make myself a catgirl or dragon girl.


Also I don't think I can add you unless you're online since my search turns up nobody
Why the hell is FFXIV so ass fucking backwards


You get a free Fantasia when you complete the ARR story so don't worry, you'll be fine if you want to become a cute catgirl.


Is your name still Vianne? I'll add you.


No it's Aurelia now but I got kicked out and can't log back in for a bit
Gimme a moment


Whats the full name

These sorts of scenes are always massively unconvincing honestly. I mean I think I'm supposed to be worried or at least involved but why should I bother?
There are powerful NPCs to do the heavy lifting for me.

Anyway I'll be logging off for the night, see if you can add me when I'm offline
If not I'll probably be on sometime around this time tomorrow, internet allowing.


I fucking despise fetch quests
Especially ones surrounded by aggro mobs
Fuck you and your fucking eggs go order some from the grocer ffs


this post inspired me to actually try reading Tsukihime after it sat on my HDD for like 5 years
Wish me luck. I hope I'll manage to play through at least one route before getting bored.


Just so you know, Nasu is working on the Tsukihime remake and said it was currently in test play. It might get released next year.


It's really rough around the edges but it's a pretty emotional story in a way Fate can't really be by design. I still like it better than anything else TM has put out.


It's a Nasu VN so it's infinitely long but good luck
Unfortunate that the best routes (Akiha, Kohaku) are later than the shittier ones and that Sacchin is missing entirely.

Can't tell if this is a joke or if it's just a poor fool


>the best routes (Akiha, Kohaku)
haha I'm right in the first scene in the mansion and I had the feeling these are the best girl


I guess you can't call it short but it's not really very long either compared to a lot of other popular VNs. It's probably a breeze to anyone who's read a lot of keyshit or anything from Ryukishi07.


Yeah but this is icicle we're talking about


>Can't tell if this is a joke or if it's just a poor fool

??? I know its been in dev hell forever but Nasu's recent interview made it sound like it was almost finished. Maybe I'm being too optimistic…

I keep getting blocked by the FFXIV Main Story for not being high enough level despite it not giving me enough EXP to level up
Augh I just want to play through the story, I don't want to run the leveling dungeon two times a day just to progress…!


MMOs didn't have main quests back in my day
Back in the good old days the grind was the destination, not the journey
And the real exp was the friends you made along the way


FFXIV is kind of like a single player game with an MMO attached to it. It's a bit weird but I like it a lot.


That's how most MMOs are these days
They're like extra grindy single player RPGs with always-on multiplayer component


Runescape still brings back good memories but I'm honestly not sure if that was because it was really that good or if I was a kid and everything had its little wonders when you're young


It got popular because it was free and ran in your browser but it was also a well-designed game with a variety of interesting things to do which is probably why a billion people still play it today
I used to mostly play it on the computers in the school library since someone was always on the phone at home, good times


Funny how I can't connect to xiv right after I bought half a year of subscription innit


Runescape was great in a sort of really basic way
It's weird how different it is from all the other MMOs though. Although I suppose 'all the other MMOs' are basically just WoW clones in the end so of course they're different from a game that predates WoW.
Sad how Jagex lost the plot.


MMOs were pretty diverse and experimental before the WoW clone era
Even all the new kickstarter MMO projects are mostly "classic" kinda traditional games more than anything else
That's not a bad thing necessarily but there's really no going back to the days before WoW when there was no benchmark of of what an MMORPG was supposed to be like


Mature markets are boring alright


Well I still have some hope for some of the kickstarter games like DAOC unchained and crowfall that claim to be both innovating and building on classic MMO design
Blue Protocol also looks like it at least fits my aesthetic tastes and bandai-namco definitely know how to make RPGs
Maybe I'll join you guys in ff14 one of these days when I'm less busy while I wait for those, I heard shadowbringers was good


You can be the seventh in the guild!


He'll be the sixth unless I can fix my interwebs

Halloween is too scary


File: track08.mp3 (5.37 MB)

Despite having never read the VN before (or any other VN for that matter), the Tsukihime title theme fills me up with nostalgia every time I load it up.
There are lots of songs from that late-90's/early-00's period that do that.
How can something makes you nostalgic even if that's the first time you hear it?

Indeed. I assume it's largely caused due to the soundfonts used, triggering memories of a certain era when they were more common. Also the overall composition I guess.


>it's largely caused due to the soundfonts used
holy crap that might be it


File: track08.mp3 (2.21 MB)

This is actually the original track 8. You're using the one from the CD OST that a lot of people replaced the old ones with. A lot of the downloads have mixed up soundtracks since the OST has no track 10 and there are people who picked and chose their favorite versions.


I actually prefer the CD version then. still, where can I get the original songs? maybe I'll mix-and-match them b/c some of the songs can get a bit grating


File: 1360668541246.jpg (10.31 KB, 391x325) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

And to make things even more confusing the OST is called "Ever After" but so is the version of the VN itself that came in the Tsukibako compilation pack, which has the original game soundtrack with slight differences and a different track 10. So technically there are two versions of the VN soundtrack, one of which came on a version of the VN called "Ever After" and then there's also the "Ever After OST" that was a standalone music CD release with complete rearrangements and no track 10, which means unless you installed directly from an original disc image and applied the patch you could have the original/Tsukibako/Ever After soundtrack with either the original electric guitar track 10 or the piano track 10 that was replaced in the Tsukibako rerelease, or you could have the "Ever After OST" rearrangements with either track 10 depending on which version of the VN the original uploader replaced the soundtrack of.

Or something like that, I think. My memory don't work so good no more.


I was going to upload it but then I remembered somebody uploaded pretty much every Tsukihime thing you'd ever need, so here:

My preferred setup is the original with the Tsukibako track 10, since that's a better ending credits track than the generic electric guitar riffs. Most people seem to feel pretty strongly about preferring the original/Tsukibako or the Ever After OST but I think they're both pretty good.

Shiki is such a stone-cold player
when I started reading I just assumed he's generic MC man
but the deeper I go the more obvious he is a certified asshole


Shiki is the most powerful character in Type-Moon but he's also a weak, lonely psycho and overreliant on his magical girlfriends. He's the best MC Nasu's ever written.


finally, i can now have discussions about who shiki can and cannot win against again


File: gudako-015.png (187.26 KB, 640x800) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Oh my god I suddenly remember this scene haha
Yeah, Shiki is a fucking cunt, he's not generic at all. Nasu has a ton of problems but he avoids the pitfall of the boring generic MC in his earlier works. That can't be said with Extra (snark isn't character) or especially GO.

Ryougi is stronger and also has powerful thighs.

TM hasn't been decent since at FHA at the very latest and Canaan was the last good thing the company has been involved in. It can't be helped. I care so little about it at this point that I actually love FGO, because of all the great figures it gets made and especially getting Alter soar to ever greater heights of figure complexity and detail, even if I'm unwilling to shell out their similarly skyrocketing prices.


File: FIGURE-041052_01.jpg (123.43 KB, 800x600) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Seriously though, I get that it's a 1/7 but a swimsuit figure, no matter how high-quality the accessories are, shouldn't be going for the same price as this monster. The old FHA maid sabers from around 2009 were like 7-8k and that was a lot back then.

And of course GSC and Aquamarine and the others don't slack either when it comes to FGO.
I love FGO! I'm never going to play it but it's my favorite mobage ever!


This is only the tip of the iceberg

Speaking of Akiha I really wish lazy mushroom man would just put the Tsukihime girls into FGO already so we can get some rad new figures of them. It's been ten years since the Melty Blood ones and figures have gotten so much better since then.

Arcade is a good girl made for hugging. Her redesign probably suits her personality more but I like her old maxi skirt and fluffy sweater better, and it fits her backstory anyways. I wish Nasu hadn't changed it.

I think this is related.
Prince of Saudi Arabia has a Steam account named "Sweetheart Yuki Yukeo"


>It was long ago confirmed that the owner of this Steam account is indeed the prince of the oil giant Saudi Arabia. The Prince of Saudi Arabia was famous for leveling his 2017 and 2018 Battle Pass to 58,000 and 150,000 respectively, contributing the largest part to the prize pool those years, which is approximately $86,000. He also owns a large inventory with some of the rarest items ever created in the game.

>Apparently, the Prince seems to be a fan of anime-ist games and characters as well. He also features items and products from many other animated games.


Whoa he's playing dota 2 right now.
It's not surprising though. Games and anime are pretty popular in the Middle East.


What the heck is SVEN? Is it like Second Life or something?

Goddamn the Prince looks like an absolute bro
I guess I shouldn't be surprised but can you just imagine a guy in full jewels and wearing a crown and probably silks lined with gold thread watching Wataten or something?
