Mount & Blade II Bannerlord is loving outstanding and I'll be posting some screenshots and stuff later, but for now please enjoy this massive list of bugs. I adore this game.

https://steamcommunity.com/app/2615...47049317941406/

Including:

5. Horses might turn into other horses.
1. Apparently throwing rocks at a wall in sieges can break the wall.
8. Sometimes characters might think you are at war with them even if they are in the same faction.
7. Clicking your own faction name under the kingdoms tab of the encyclopedia will likely freeze and crash your game.
13. Animals cannot use stairs.
Cannot craft axes (or other weapons with only 2 components).
Trying to end a mission when you are over capacity (too much loot), instead of just not letting you do that, the game will instead start to lag really hard (single digit FPS, down from 100+) and then CTD. Tried to send a bug report, but the bug reporter also crashed.
!!!DON'T WALK AROUND TOWN IN PEN CANNOC!!! OR SIEGE IT!!! Just stay away from there, 'tis a silly place.

kids these days have it too easy, you just tattle to isabelle and she puts the offending loser in a boat and shoves them off

I thought it was like that but if you complain to Isabelle she only lets you reset their clothes/speech I guess because people might corrupt your villagers with rude and/or lewd custom designs/phrases

she said she would talk to nate for me but clearly he can't take a hint

as someone who's not tapped into the animal crossing zeitgeist preferring one colorful cartoon animal villager over another is incomprehensible to me. do they give you different resources if you have the right ones or something?

The English AC commercials are so spot on about what you actually do in AC that I'm surprised Nintendo just doesn't keep showing it with every new game.

Who are the worst and best villagers from each personality type and why

Ometeotl posted:

Not on me but there's a decent chance it is packed away at my mother's house with the rest of my things. I'm likely not gonna see it again though because 1. the only game I had on it was really really bad (it was batman) and 2. don't really feel safe going back to that place yet, especially to dig around for a game.com

homeless snail posted:

the closest factorio really comes to critique of pollution is one the bugs don't like it when you pollute and that attracts them to your factory (so you build a bunch of guns to shoot the bugs problem solved), and also coal and oil are finite resources so you eventually have to take on the burden of going out and finding new fields to extract and transport to your base if you aren't going solar

but really its final statement is "this isn't earth who cares gently caress it up", its definitely not an environmentalist game

Jay Rust posted:

Yeah factorio is definitely not pro-environment at all

I was mainly basing it off of the steam page description which, to me, reads more than a little bit critical of the game and acknowledging the fact that, when it comes down to it, you're the bad guy here

quote:

Factorio is a game in which you build and maintain factories. You will be mining resources, researching technologies, building infrastructure, automating production and fighting enemies. In the beginning you will find yourself chopping trees, mining ores and crafting mechanical arms and transport belts by hand, but in short time you can become an industrial powerhouse, with huge solar fields, oil refining and cracking, manufacture and deployment of construction and logistic robots, all for your resource needs. However this heavy exploitation of the planet's resources does not sit nicely with the locals, so you will have to be prepared to defend yourself and your machine empire.

The only way you could make me play that game was by actively paying me money for it, but I've always considered not every game being for everyone largely a positive thing anyway. Plus lord knows I've my own backlog to work through.

Hey, everybody. I'm a stupid gamer with an ugly gamer and a big gamer and my gamer smells, and I like to kiss my own gamer.

in my attempt to take the longest worldwide to complete xenoblade 2, i pick it up and durdle around every few months and this time i have no recollection of what i am supposed to be doing and no main quests.

i never looked into the customizable difficulty options but they're real good, probably what should be standard for the genre. might jack it down and burn through it and some point soon

it's a Google Docs spreadsheet that it looks like he pulled from the Idle Thumbs reddit or something that describes how there's only a few specific patterns that the turnip prices follow, so if you can chart them you'll get an idea of how much it's going to be and therefore when to sell

I don't feel like writing the same reasons over and over since the reasons tend to come down to "I like their design" and "They were in my village and were cool" or "I don't like their design" and "They were in my village and they were awful."

Best villagers from each personality type:

Chief (Cranky)
Bud (Jock)
Bob (Lazy)
Zell (Smug)
Celia (Normal)
Tangy (Peppy)
Ankha (Snooty)
Katt (Uchi)

Worst villagers from each personality type:

Wart Jr. (Cranky)
Stinky (Jock)
Alfonso (Lazy)
Beardo (Smug)

Apple (Peppy)

It didn't occur to me that the leaks we've been getting in regards to some Nintendo news could have been the result of a hack until I saw this thread and then I was like, oh yeah, the private press materials/marketing servers could have gotten hacked and had stuff like this.

And then I kinda felt bad for whoever this hacker was because they are going to get put through the loving wringer in court when they're found. Not if they're found but when they're found.
