You glasses-havers should consider paying someone to shoot you in the eyes with lasers. Best thing I've ever done.

Ain't cheap, but if you can swing it man it's incredible. If I paid double what it cost it would still be worth it.

VR headset optics usually have the focal distance fixed at about 2 meters, so if you can focus at that distance IRL then you won't need glasses

Wow, really mixed feelings on that. The anime art style is completely off, the isometric view makes all the profiles look 'wrong', and not to mention careful positioning and deliberate shots are antithetical to the Rambo-style gameplay Metal Slug is built on. Otoh I'm a total sucker for FFT and XCOM games, soooo....

This is everything I could ever want. Feels like a really bombastic saturday morning cartoon rather than an anime, the music is classic Metal Slug goodness, but it is weird seeing those sprites at those angles. Really excited.

For some reason that trailer doesn't do anything for me. And I loved the trailers for DS1 and DS3.

Maybe it's because all the creatures shown off are weird and goofy, and there's no "normal" backdrop for them to be weird and goofy against. My first thought after watching the trailer was "these all seem like cut-content creature designs from the soulsborne series".

I hope the next trailer is another Bartholomew level masterpiece.

The level of betrayal I felt when Paradox announced their new DLC tore something from me that I'll never be able to recover. They tore away my ability to respect anything, and they tore away my ability to feel human.

The only good thing about Death Stranding was how thirsty Kojima got for Mads.

It's the opposite for me, I generally dislike tactics games for their slow pace of play but just the metal slug IP and the nice looking sprites is plenty to get me interested in this one. I wish it was an action game but I'm still here for it

Is there a thread for Chivalry 2? Hate to keep asking questions about it here when it's not even on Steam, even though this is often the default miscellaneous PC-gaming thread.

Anyway, I keep seeing notifications that I've been healed by other players, and seeing + signs over friendly player's heads, but aside from bandages I can use on myself I haven't yet figured out how to heal other players. How do you do it?

There's a freshly created general swordmans game thread: https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3969586

Some classes have ways to heal teammates behind the 4 button. Like a warhorn that is a big one-time AoE heal and a banner you can plonk down for a longer lasting heal aura.

Disagree, the anime parts look good, not that it seems like it'll come up past the intro video. The sprite work still looks great and retains the style with a change in perspective. I can never get far in these quarter-munchers and from what I tell it's partly because of the Rambo style, speedruns and complete run videos seem to be a lot more methodical than I am. My one gripe is the moment of hope where I thought maybe this would be an Advance Wars game with Metal Slug flair, but judging from the Steam page additional info, FFT/XCOM style seems to be the route it's taking... which is still cool, love that type of game too, just we get a shitload of those and the one fake-Advance Wars game, Wargroove, sucks really bad.

For the steam versions of the following, which are the most agreeable to modern gaming standards

Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy IX
Final Fantasy X/X-2

My only final fantasy games ever played are FF6/7 on PC emulators in the mid 2000s (never beaten), beating FF13, trying to play 13-2, and beating Kingdom Hearts 1&2. I know most of the PC ones come with cheat menus to speed things up and make leveling faster but I don't really know how they've aged in general.
