Thread for Gamers: Game, Set, and Match!

Postby New Visayan Islands » Sat Nov 18, 2023 1:06 am

The day that gamers across NationStates have been waiting for is finally here! That's right, folks! Blitzball season has begun!

Final Fantasy X reference aside, with the previous Thread for Gamers approaching its close, the time has come to start anew.

Why are you here?
Because this is where we talk about Za Warudo The World of Video Games, from the games you play, to the business practices of their developers, and even the occasional foray into eSports. Your platform of choice, which game streamer you enjoy watching, your preferred genre, it's all here. Just don't be a dick about the gaming experience, y'hear?

When in doubt, see below spoilers.

Hasnt been posted in again for like three years, unless its bound to pick up a big conversation probably not worth it as it could be seen as grave digging.

Took a gander at the Game of the Year nominees, and even though this year is the first that I've actually played a few of the prominent new games in practically ever, I still haven't played most of the nominated games, though I'm sure the average Gamer™ hasn't either.
It's been several years and I'm still the Paradox Thread's Self-Appointed Court Chaplain. No one's ever asked but I thought you should know.

Realms of Ruin, the new Age of Sigmar video game aint bad, looks good, the combat is satisfying, voice acting is solid so far, im enjoying it. Only a few missions in but its been decent enough so far. Nice to finally play an AoS video game, gives me more of a sense how different factions would work, especially ones i dont play. The Stormcast are nice and chunky, have a good sense of weightiness to them as they move around.

It is customary for this thread to have a straw poll on what platform we use to play video games. The poll should allow for multiple options, and the ability for posters to change their votes due to the rapid advances in video gaming.

Yeah. I'm trying not to risk any warns/threadbans.

Now, I have a question to those who play Roblox (mobile) on a old device - do you guys also get a bug where all textures go down to 144p?

If they ever remaster freedom fighters they need to change the reload to manual reload.
As waiting for someone to pop around the corner to shot them for the game to go nope it reloading your gun time as they do is a pain in the ass.

If we are talking about video games, does this mean that I can complain about how long it is taking for delta r7ne chapter 3 to come out?

That was a General specific ruling because people didn't want the megathreads dominating all discussion of the topics. However, the A&F threads weren't included in this, afaik

I was giving it a gander the other night actually, wondering if I should give it a go. Been getting into Warhammer more and more lately, vids on YT here and there, and enjoyed a good chunk of time in Darktide. Jump on every now and then for a couple of missions, it's great fun.

I sometimes have the same feeling for Sims 2 characters whom I create as protagonists, but none at all for any Sims 1 characters.

I have a character in Fallout 4 that is just for screwing around,nothing serious, and i have got some mods installed, including one that puts a Lee Enfield rifle in the game, and with the mod installed, you get a quest to find a Lee Enfield at level 15, but i already knew where it was at, so i trekked over there, and apparently you don't have to be level 15 to get it, i got it at level 14.
