PSA: If you preorder Sonic Mania on PS4 you get three themes, but they're all static and use the default PS4 dashboard music. Very disappointing.

In other news, there's a demo for Shadow Tactics

The Shadow the Hedgehog XCOM-like??

Speaking of buying things. I'm looking to get a Switch soon, maybe like in a month. How much of a pain in the rear end is that gonna be? Are they still pretty hard to get a hold of?

Browsing the platformers on steam, the same thing keeps happening: I'll see an interesting looking platformer, read the description, and all my interest will die when I see "procedural" or "procedurally generated levels"

Please, game devs, for the love of god. I don't want levels randomly thrown together so there's an unending possibility of half assed stages. I want real thoughtfully crafted level design!! There are other genres that work with procedurally generated stuff, but platformers are not it IMO. I go back to Shovel Knight and Tropical Freeze (or just about any Nintendo platformer really) and see these really amazingly crafted stages with awesome level design and can't imagine how much worse those games would've been if the stages were randomly built.

I must be in the minority here because so many of these platformers are super well received but it's my favorite genre and procedural generation is one of the least interesting things to me.

I remember someone in the Mario Maker thread figured out you could make rocket barrel levels by combining water with the fastest autoscrolling setting and it was great

mario maker switch please

Hello that was me! I made about 4 of them I think. I would've kept making more but could only do so much with the water stage assets They were super fun to make though. It makes me want to learn unity or gamemaker or whatever the hotness is to make my own full game of them.

The Rocket Barrel levels in TF are some of the most genuinely creative stages in a platformer I've ever seen, which is one of the reasons procedural generation is so boring to me. Like a randomly thrown together stage couldn't do what the Reckless Ride stage did where you traveled through a fruit processing factory and it told a story and had a beginning middle and end and UGH it's so good!!!

Weapon durability is dumb in literally every single game that uses it, no exceptions. Even in WoW oh my sword is 50% durability guess i'll pay a few gold and it's fixed wow what a dynamic interesting system

Endorph posted:

durability is good in fire emblem thracia 776 because you can only buy crappy iron weapons so you have to beat enemies up and take their weapons constantly, so you have to look at enemy inventories and plan around weakening the guys with good weapons so you can capture them, as opposed to just beating everyone up

by end game you still have an infinite stockpile of the best weapons but at least you got those cool weapons yourself instead of being handed a bunch of gold to buy them with

It's weird how you said durability is good there but then went on to describe something that isn't good

It's actually really important in games like WoW as a meta-indicator that your group sucks and should give up without anyone individually getting blamed.

Are we playing the same WoW

Cowcaster posted:

thinking about it i think my opinion boils down to "if weapon durability is going to degrade extremely quickly, than there needs to be functionality to repair weapons (system shock 2, dark souls 2)", and "if weapons cannot be repaired and breaking is inevitable, then their durability needs to degrade slowly enough that they feel worth using despite that (s.t.a.l.k.e.r.)"

I just don't want my weapon to break period. I want to have a weapon and it works and always works. I'm okay with other weapon choices for different playstyles to be available but I don't want to be forced into a different weapon cause my weapon broke. I guess it's not all that different from ammo in the grand scheme of things but it feels different.

On the other hand, I would like to play a game where you manage a blacksmith shop

I love the idea of a game where you play as the shopkeepers or merchants or bosses or guides or... whatever NPCs in RPGs and stuff. What was that game that came out several years ago where you run an item shop? What a cute little interesting game that was. I'm totally down for more of that kind of thing.

I wish the Disney Infinity brand had just abandoned the game and exclusively done figures because I loved the figures and I'm forever sad we're not getting a decent Maui and Moana figure anymore

I have a Sorcerer's Apprentice Micky, Vanellope and Wreck-it Ralph DI figures and they are such good quality little figures, I never played the games.

i feel like i bring this up anytime mentions totalbiscuit but the only interaction i've ever had with the guy is when he compared a reddit forum getting shut down the the napalming of vietnamese villages

It's frustrating because I wouldn't even pay TB any attention if it wasn't for the fact that he's pretty intertwined with two youtubers I really like (Jesse Cox and Dodger). I pretty much only watch the Co-Optional Podcast from his channel now, and that's far more because of Jesse and Dodger than him.
