Realtalk I think the gameplay of these is perfectly fine and fun in a lot of cases but why doesn't any part but 1 have any sort of difficulty.

I'm usually not one of the MUH DIFFICULTY crowd but there's no point to going for the "you are all winners" school of difficulty in a stealth game. The failure state is essential for these. Even 0 detection runs aren't really a matter of skill but of choice.

Stealth games are fun but AC punishes you so little for breaking stealth beyond 1 (and even there the punishment consists of having to play the rythm game they called a combat system back then) that there's no real point to even do it.

you have misidentified assassin's creed as a stealth game

I3uster
January 3rd, 2016, 04:06 PM
Honestly if they went for distinct settings and like a 3 part trilogy I think the framing device would've worked fine with maybe an actual gameplay sequence in the real world for the last one.

the problem is that it simultaneously had to act as holding pattern sequel hook bullshit so it just went full lost

never go full lost

Witcher is a way less egregious example of The Sandbox Game than normal, lacking towers and whatnot. It's a sandbox RPG, more like Bethesda titles than The Sandbox Game.

I only like fc4 more because of the good end.

fc4 is just such an ubisoft game because it tries to make lightning strike twice in a cynically calculating manner

it reminds me of the CoDMWs all having to have a sadbad scene because the nuke was an actually good and effective moment so lets just do it again but yknow, BIGGER

Like yes Vaas is a reason this game is good but it's not the only reason or FC4 would be better than FC3, which it is only in the eyes of madmen as you can see by the fact that Rodyle holds this opinion.

FC4 has a way better setting, the villain is a more omnipresent feature, and it cuts the tedious "white saviour"/"savage cult" garbage.

Mind you, of the 3 BD is the only one I cared to stick with long enough to finish instead of just getting bored and looking up the rest. Almost like 3 and 4 are both stretched thin and stuffed with filler or something.

I'm guessing you didn't beat the superbosses in the original. Sure the cutscenes and story are cool but the really rewarding thing about the first game was beating the strongest monsters with the fantastic battle system. X capitalised on that and expanded it a lot. They even incorporated the most powerful monster in X into the narrative where as in xenoblade, if zanza was god of all life on the bionis why didn't he just drop avalance abassy (level 120 dragon) onto you and call it a day as shulk is crushed by spike damage?

Ok, realtalk.

Xenoblade and presumably X too seem to be good games, they are just missing the reason I like/care about Xenosaga/Gears.
Fair enough. Wish xenogears and xenosaga where on the PS store. A walk through for xenosaga would probably be the same thing as playing it right?

I mean I don't end up liking any Xeno game beyond certain parts. Saga 1 had some hilarious cutscenes but not much else, Xenogears had that 2nd disk, Xenoblade completely collapses in the 2nd half of the game, and X has basically nothing but environments going for it so far as I have seen.

It doesn't matter what character you play you tube, it's still MMO combat, it's all babysitting cool down bars and collecting horse spines.
In the first xenoblade monster materials don't matter at all. Managing cooldown bars is a pretty tactical and interesting thing to do imo especially when it matters the order in which you combine them together.

Yes it does because you need to collect gubbins to get good shit, hell, they hid goddamn Monado abilities behind some of those fetch quests.

Well those monado abilities aren't really important. The skill trees you unlock by sidequesting are incredibly important though.

Probably because the farming is on a whole different scale in X that the first game seems like nothing.

X has about 120 hours of non stop normal/affinity/story missions some of which do involve tedious elements (get X am mount of thing or kill X monster ect) but those bits don't take very long and you get some cool dialogue out of them. X has a lot of interesting alien races that I didn't even realise existed till I got into playing the game.
