What other games do you all play and enjoy?
For me, my primary focus is Final Fantasy XIV.
But I also enjoy some Stellaris now and again and am trying to get run a game of Endless Legend for myself. And as you can tell from my Sig, I'm waiting on Pyre, the third game by Supergiant Games, the fine people behind Bastion and Transistor.
I'd play Starbound and Terraria more if I could have some steady friends and buddies to play with.
There are a few others that I can't think of right now.
EU4. I haven't been able to play many games for months now due to an injured left hand (which is healing super slowly, can infrequently type with it again recently). I'm afraid Stellaris would give me carpel tunnel syndrome in my right hand even with my vertical mouse.
I play Fire Emblem Heroes on my commute to/from work. Mostly auto-battling though since there isn't much to do anymore. I didn't like Endless Legend due to fake alternative win conditions/lack of playing 'tall'.
- Starcraft 2 semi-professionally (Zerg) - Then later switched to Overwatch (Widowmaker, Hitscan main), because I lacked the time to play SC2 seriously. Unfortunately I have less and less spare time and can only afford to play a couple rounds of OW occasionally atm. - I’m 21 now, and grew up with early 2000’s games. Stuff like GTA Vice City, Mafia 1, Return to castle Wolfenstein. I have kept up with the industry ever since and played tons of titles from all different genres across the years.
To Sunrider in general: I discovered Sunrider by coincidence, I’m not really big on JRPG’s and stayed because I enjoyed the gameplay and community. I do think that the game has many shortcomings. I think the characters (including Icari) are meh at best. The franchise works with many typical Japanese anime tropes I despise. (harem, moe-shit, overuse of shallow anime character archetypes, too much cringe-worthy sexual content etc.), and the company itself is continuing to develop questionable titles to say the least. A priority shift away from gameplay or “Magical Girl Simulater 2018” would very likely lead me lo leave.
I stumbled across Sunrider on accident as well. I had been playing XCOM2 and Steam saw fit to toss MoA up on the front page.
As for the tropes of Sunrider, I don't play enough games along these lines to really get exhausted by them. I don't play VNs at all really. But I do enjoy Turn Based Strategy (XCOM, Fire Emblem, Heroes of Might and Magic) and I will say that Sunrider has one of the least stress-inducing RNGs, which is nice as I play too much Fire Emblem and XCOM at times where missing 99% shots isn't improbable, it's downright expected.
I'd also be playing the Skyrim Special Edition if the Skyrim Script Extender for the game was released, and the right mods followed suit. Alas, I expect that to be released on June 16th; the very same day Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood goes into pre-order only (which is to say 90% of the current playerbase) early access.
Valkyria Chronicles was a good game. Shame the spinoff game got bad reviews.
Wesnoth is a good tbs. I highly recommend it.
RNG in Fire Emblem can be really annoying ya. On the other hand in Kamidori (FE like game) I had 2 friendly units with base 40% evasion, Prevail III (def/res +50% and 50% more atk when HP < 80%?, Evasion III (33% separate roll on evasion), Counterattack III (extra counterattack and evade enemy attack) + Lethal (10%?) and Lifesteal from weapons. The RNG gods had to really hate you to lose a unit with all of that.
Pair up in awakening allowed similar stuff as well, Aether was so op in that game.
With regards to Starnova and Sunrider I would say the team is really trying with Starnova to make it good beyond just the fanservice. Fanservice sells.
I was surprised by the quality of it and used to be in the camp of 'will never like starnova'. You can just skip past the fanservice parts, the rest of the plot is pretty serious. Hoping the game will be a success so there will be more Sunriders in the future.
I tend to have a mix of games depending on the platform:
PS4 - Persona 5 - Dark Cloud / Dark Chronicle - Kingdom Hearts - Horizon Zero Dawn - Steins;Gate 0 - Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception
PC - Visual novels for days - Civilization - 100% Orange Juice - XCOM - Rabi Ribi - Elder Scrolls / Fallout - Etc etc (I'm sure we are all disappointed with how many games we have on platforms like Steam and the ratio of owned/played)
3DS - Phoenix Wright
Gamecube - Pokemon XD / Pokemon Colosseum - Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - Legend of Zelda: Windwaker - Resident Evil: 0, 1, Nemesis, 4 (hoping to snag a deal on a copy of 2 at some point to finish the set)
Be warned, elements of this post may have been influenced by my 'West Country Logic'.
FF XV and Tekken 7 are what I've been doing the most on the PS4! On the PC, I normally play VNs (Homeward being the last one I touched) and WoW (private Lich King Server). I seriously need to get a new PC though... I have all Resident Evil games except 2 (have for the PS1 tho), 3, 5 (have for the PS3 tho), 7 and Revelations 2 for the PC and I can't run a single one of them! Mix this with Dark Souls 1, Darksiders 1, Hyperdimension and FF XIII and I'll be pretty much set for some time when I do manage to buy that PC!
I also play whatever crosses my mind at the time but lately, it's been comprised in this... Seriously can't wait for GoW! >___<
Because im an Aviations Enthusiast i was playing about the "Flying Theme" Besides i was like the VN's too... My Favorite games was Ace Combat series. Im still waiting the Ace Combat 7 after they are releasing the E3 trailer and of course they delayed too.... Besides Ace Combat i was actually like Kerbal Space Programs.
Did you know making Sunrider it was hard in KSP, need more Research too make it... Haha....😁
