    Gaming DEATH BATTLE

    Hey, everypony. ^^ I hope I'm not the only one here who's heard of ScrewAttack.com's infamous series: For those who know what I'm talking about, sweet! ^^ For those who may not, allow me to explain. ^^ Death Battle is a series where 2 characters from (usually) video games, have their "skills, weapons, and armor" completely analyzed by 2 awesome bros known as Wizard and Boomstick, to see who would win a fight. It's actually a really awesome series, I would highly recommend it to those who haven't watched it. ^^ Death Battle has answered some of the most common asked questions to "who would win a fight between x and x?" Some of their most infamous battles have been: Goku VS Superman Mario VS Sonic Spider-Man VS Batman and just for us Bronies Starscream VS Rainbow Dash This series is really cool, and I think there's some serious discussion behind all this. ^^ Today, they have just released their newest Death Battle: Luigi VS Tails Now, take these with a grain of salt, because there's a lot more battles then these I've just named. ^^ For those who have already seen the videos and wish to discuss, I ask that you keep spoiling parts under spoiler tags. Oh, and did I mention that they animate a fight at the end of the videos? Very cool! ^^ So, that's about it. ^^" I'm not entirely sure where to start discussion besides saying that today's Luigi VS Tails battle was amazing! ^^ Has anyone else seen it yet? ^^

    Gaming Your Favorite Team Fortress 2 Class?

    This can be because of the personality, your play style, or both. Mine has to be The Demoman. I just love his personality, he's hilarious! Gameplay wise I love him to, with Engie & scout at a close second and third. What are your guys?

    Gaming Your Favorite Mario Game

    Just wondering everyponies favorite Mario game is, Mine is Super Mario World because of it's excellent gameplay and vast amount of levels. Remember, every answer is right!
  4. Multiplayer gaming is pretty much the biggest thing in the industry at this point. Tons of people love multiplayer gaming for many reasons. Me, one of my favorite things in multiplayer games, specifically shooters, is the progression system. Made popular by Call of Duty in 2007, many games now utilize progression systems of various kinds, having mainly to do with leveling up, completing challenges, earning XP and all that good stuff. That was one of the best things introduced to multiplayer gaming, because I love that feeling of progression and the many stats that come with it. I am sorta a stats nut. To me, progression systems that are done well can be important, at least for someone like me. If I am having an off day and the games just aren't going in my favor at all, knowing that I am leveling up and completing challenges regardless helps ease frustration. So that established, what are some of your favorite progression systems in multiplayer games? And if you want to delve into the other side of that coin, do you have any least favorites? Discuss away ye pones! So I am going to say this right away, my favorite progression system is definitely in the Call of Duty titles. While the series has been drenched in greed lately due to Activision being garbage as they do, a key strength the games have possessed, even in their weakest entries, has been the progression systems, and that makes sense considering the series pretty much pioneered how to do this type of correctly. The satisfying feeling of leveling up, the sheer amount of challenges to complete for XP and the different medals you get for doing different things like headshots and such, it all adds up to make the game addicting, as it is known to be. Sadly the past few Call of Duty titles just haven't hooked me because of their gameplay design issues, but Black Ops 4 has rekindled my excitement. I know Call of Duty is hated by many and for many legit reasons, but BO4 looks quite fun. It's multiplayer progression system seems just as good as ever. However, the battle royale mode, Blackout, is a different story. You only increase in rank with wins. So, that is lame as hell. Speaking of lame, a couple of good examples of, in my opinion, bad progression systems are Overwatch and Splatoon 2. Both of these games, to me, have terrible progression systems. Overwatch is fairly straight-forward. You earn XP while playing and you level up, that's it. The XP you earn is all based on how long the match is so everyone earns the same amount of XP, not counting the win bonus which is tiny. That makes everything an even playing field, sure, but it is not satisfying in the slightest. It all means that leveling up and earning XP is not based on your performance at all, but rather just time. There's also nothing in the slightest like challenges to complete or anything like that, so it feels as basic as you can possibly get. You can boil down level ups to a certain number of matches and it feels so hollow. I like being rewarded for doing well in a game like this, especially if we lose despite my best efforts. Knowing that I earned something extra by doing well is really nice. Again, it can ease frustration, but that doesn't exist in Overwatch. With a game as unbalanced as that, it doubles the irritation I feel and it is one of the many reasons why I have stopped playing it altogether. Not only that, but the only reason to level up and the only reward you get, is a loot box every time, a loot box that contains very basic cosmetics. Um, yay? So the progression system in Overwatch is entirely loot boxes, nothing else. I just can't bring myself to like that at all. Even Call of Duty, a series that loves its loot boxes lately, gives you more for leveling up. Weapons, equipment, things like that. It works. In Overwatch, it just doesn't. Splatoon 2 is a weird one, because while it does a couple of things right, it pretty much falls in Overwatch's category, but in some ways does it even worse. You get the standard XP, you level up and leveling up here does get you new weapons which is cool but the positives end there. Firstly, leveling up eventually takes FOREVER in this game. It takes so damn long that again, it doesn't feel satisfying. It is more apparent because like Overwatch, your performance in a match just doesn't mean much, especially if you lose. Splatoon 2 is one of the most frustrating multiplayer games to lose in that I have ever played. Winning nets you a pretty substantial amount of XP, more than you could possibly earn in a match on your own accord, and losing net's you...jack shit. Oh, but your weapon loses its freshness rating, so yay! Not only do you not get the XP bonus, you also lose freshness rating on your weapon! FUN. The game lost me around level 33 or so. I just couldn't stand the frustration anymore that the game gives me. Again, there are no real challenges to complete for splatting people and such, it is all based on wins and losses and the level system isn't good enough to make up for it. So yeah, that's my take. What about all of you?

    Gaming Nintendo Direct 9/13/2018

    Hello everyone. I was on Discord earlier, and I understand that Nintendo has announced another Direct for tomorrow at 3:00 PM Pacific Standard time. I thought maybe I should start a topic about it. Obviously a lot of people are excited about Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and hoping there will be a newcomer announced during the direct, but we'll see. What would you like to see in the direct? What do you think will happen?

    Gaming What games do you play?

    So I didn't find any thread like this so I made one. So idea is, What games do you play? List some games you play regularly. I made this because I'm interested in what kind of players forums have and maybe even get some gaming friends play games with. I personally... well I play Payday 2 and borderlands 2 most of the time but I also play: Payday: The Heist, Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, Just Cause 2 multiplayer and some other games.

    Gaming What was your first steam game?

    My first steam game was Garry's Mod. It was also the first multiplayer game I've ever played on PC. Literally first time I've played with actual people! It was one of the greatest experiences I've ever had! But Steam has been around with us for a very long time and I'm curious. I wanted to know from you guys what was your first steam game! What was your experience with your first game like? Did you had fun with it?
  10. Alright, I did a little digging and it appears no one has done this. Alright so it's exactly what it sounds like, what was your first console. I'm going to include the next generation for obvious reasons. In all honesty, my first console was the Wii, sad I know since I'm 19. My parents never let us have consoles until one day they decided to get a Wii, a few months after it was released. After that, we, my brother and I, bought a PS2, taking baby steps, sold that after a while and then finally purchased a Xbox 360. He went to college, I paid him off on the 360, so now it is all mine. He owns a PS3 now.
  11. A bit of a stupid topic, I know . People typically have a few games that they enjoy a lot, but I was curious if anyone had one which they enjoy so much, they would play it for the rest of their life. Would only being able to play one game get boring? Probably. But if there was only one that you could play for the rest of your life, what would it be? (You can include a compilation, if you want.) For me, I'd say Super Mario 64 on the Nintendo 64. That game was practically my childhood, so I have very fond memories of it. It may be the nostalgia, but I don't think I will ever get tired of that game - due to how fun it can be, despite it's issues.
  12. Do you think Esports will ever become as popular as football, basketball or baseball? Will the finals of say, an Overwatch tournament be viewed by as many people as the Super Bowl?

    Gaming Video Game Nostalgia thread

    I hope I'm not alone on this one:
  14. Now that the Next Generation Consoles are out, I look back at the awesome games of the past... I personally love my N64, and my favourite games are tied between Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask... I want to know what you people think.

    Gaming Castlevania

    <.< We've got a Digimon, Yugioh and Sonic topic already so I figured this would be okay. The Castlevania series is big enough for it's own topic! Discuss the Castlevania series in general! Got a favorite game? Favorite era? What do you think of Castlevania's jump to 3D? Remember to keep spoilers in tags I started a new file on Aria of Sorrow and played through 95% of it already. All I have left to do is go through the Chaotic Realm and I'll have beaten it on Hard Mode. Soma is definitely my favorite protagonist of the series, next to Gabriel and Hector. I know most people think Alucard is all that and a bag o' chips but I'm not in agreement. Yeah, he's pretty badass but I don't think he's the best character without a shadow of a doubt.

    Gaming Any Sonic the Hedgehog fans?

    I've been a Sonic fan for 10 years and I'll never stop loving the series or the Blue Blur himself. He's my favorite character in anything ever and my idol. And I know Rainbow Dash is pretty fast and super awesome, but I'll always believe Sonic is the Best!
  17. If you've played any, what's your all-time favorite TLoZ game? I assume most of you will say Ocarina of Time, which is fine, because it's my favorite too :3 Although A Link To The Past is a close second. Edit: the reason why OoT is my fave, mostly because of nostalgia, and the fact that every other Zelda game I played didn't match up to it, for me anyways, obviously from an objective stand point they've gotten better, but I just like OoT more. Likewise for A Link To The Past. So, uh, what is your favorite?
  18. Nintendo is currently sitting pretty with the success of the Switch, but where do they go after the Switch? Do they make a traditional console again, or do they keep making a console-handheld hybrid? I'm not sure a second hybrid would be as successful as the Switch, and I don't know if they can succeed with a traditional console. I'm worried they'll be in another Wii U situation.
  19. Hello, everypony! So if you follow Smash, the entire gaming community was waiting a week longer than expected due to the earthquake in Japan to see who character number 68 would be in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. And now we have our answer. This is Isabelle. She comes from Animal Crossing New Leaf, where the player becomes the town's new mayor, and Isabelle will be the player's assistant. In the previous installment which was Super Smash Bros for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, she was an assist trophy. She is now the third Assist Trophy to be promoted to a playable fighter. The previous two being Little Mac and Dark Samus. What are your thoughts about Isabelle's debut in Super Smash Bros? Personally, I don't play Animal Crossing anymore, but I still care for the franchise and I will use her.
  20. Ok, Quick Question here: If you like Nintendo, what is your favorite Title/series from Nintendo? Remember, you can list ANY title or series below, as long as it was an ACTUAL Nintendo game, not a Capcom, Sega, or any other brand name's game that was licensed for one of Nintendo's console, e.g. Street Fighter IV and Sonic Heroes. Especially not Sega, since they were Rivals in the 90's
  21. Gaming has been around for more than 30 years now, starting with the Atari. Since then gaming has changed, and I will tell right off the bat that this change is the bad kind of change. It began to go downhill back in the Xbox 360/PS3 trend and got worse from there. Now the gaming industry is at its worst position yet being so successful as the same time. It has changed in a bad way because of many reasons, mainly because of the microtransaction system. Microtransactions are the major reason. Here are a few examples of this: (1) you must buy a DLC after you bought the game if you want to continue playing the game on super cool-looking maps/modes/etc. This sucks, because you already spent X amount in cash on the game itself, and now you have to play on the regular maps with the cool ones locked behind a paywall! (2) You must spend money to buy super-cool skins in the game or can stick with the default and non-cool skins and face PERSECUTION AND TORUTURE by other players and friends! In other words, the game developers do this on purpose by locking cool things behind paywalls because they know the typical gamer will pay for them. This happens in most free-to-play games, and many games you already payed an initial price for. Once again, it sucks. (3) You must pay money to win. If you buy this certain item that gives you X more damage/health, you will get an advantage over other players! By the way, you cannot obtain this certain item in-game, only by purchasing it. (4) Loot boxes. Grind, grind, grind for items that take ages to obtain, or simply spend X cash to have a chance to get this super-cool/super-helpful item. A typical gamer spends cash. There goes a saying, “you get what you pay for”. Well, apply this to video games and you see that games are not worth the absurd prices. They charge unrealistic amounts of money for microtransactions and their video games, and gamers want the game/skins so bad that they are willing to pay for it. 60$ for a new video game. $199.99 for as many skins and cool things as you want. $50 DLC to get 10+ maps and DLC weapons after you buy the $60 game itself. By the way, you already spent $500 on a new console, and now you got to pay more for video games to play on it? Enough said. You get the point. You get the best experience if you pay extra money, or in merciful circumstances you grind forever to get everything that you could have got by simply clicking the “buy” icon. The developers lie when they say the game is free or when they that all you have to do is spend 20$ or so to buy the game and that’s all. Games these days are designed to get you addicted. All of them have a system that gives a feeling of progress. It is that system, that feel of progress, that sucks everyone into this addiction. You feel that you are actual doing something in life, that you are reaching goals, when you are actually harming yourself and others. Developers purposefully do this to get people to buy their product and stay in it for a very long time. Gaming in the PS2 era (conclusion): Once upon a time, the gaming industry was productive, and provided many with a relaxing and fun thing to do with their free time. Gaming was something many people could afford that didn’t eat their wallets. The video games created were given in their full state. Many of them could be completed within a month, sometimes even sooner. They had genuine content. They had wholesome content. They had no “microtransactions”. One could say that a golden age had come. Then the wolf came in sheep’s clothing. Its name was Greed. Greed silently crept into the gaming industry, and when the Xbox 360 and PS3 came out, Greed began to poison the gaming industry. Over time, the gaming industry fell prey to Greed, and by the Xbox One era, it was too late. Microtransactions reigned supreme, and all hope was lost. The end. Such a sad story. The moral of it is don’t be in it for the money, don’t be greedy, don’t ruin your works with microtransactions!
  22. So since Pokemon Black2 & White2 are coming out very soon in North America. I'm curious to ask which Pokemon game is your favorite, also to add which Pokemon is your favorite. I'v played every game at some point or another, but for me i'd say Diamond & Pearl were my personal favorite, the storyline and game was just so different it was awesome. I also always have a hard time choosing my favorite Pokemon.. it's always between Chansey, Scizor, and Darkrai! What say you everypony?
  23. We all have video games that we love. We all have our favorites. Usually, our favorite games do not have a bunch of things we dislike. However, some of our top favorite titles could still have moments or aspects that we still cannot bring ourselves to actually like that particular thing, but we still love the game overall. So, let's delve into that subject. Are there any aspects or parts to your favorite games that you actually dislike? I have an easy one for me: Elite Dangerous. One of my favorite games ever. I love almost everything about the game and it has such insane potential to grow and get better and better. However, there is one thing about the game I honestly hate: The combat. I have not exactly tried it much, but judging from the tutorials, the combat in the game is immensely tedious but also risky, and boring, though that is personal preference. It is the one part of the game I do not like at all. Mining, you are getting close to 2nd place.
  24. Almost every gamer has at least one of these games. Those games where we started it, get through it to a certain point and then....we never actually finish it. Don't you hate that? I sure dd, because I do it waaaay too much. XD There are so many games I have started but never actually finished for whatever. Could be the game was incredibly long, other games took my time or I just sorta forgot and couldn't get back into it. Let's delve in this topic. What are some games that you have started before but never completed? I have some sad candidates. Most Final Fantasy games, I never complete. I have started so many before in my life and never finished them. I think it is because I will take a break and then just be lost on what I am doing and lose motivation. This goes for most RPG's. Only FF game I have finished. Friggin 13-2. Yeah, I know, sad. Also most Zelda games. I have only ever finished Ocarina of Time. I have started so many others in the series but just never completed them.
  25. Mine was Super Metroid for the SNES.
