well, marvel takes it's cues from soap opera - human drama - and DC aims to be modern folklore. just different beasts!
eXoDuS
DC just has the justice league
XOXOGossipGita
(i'm writing something about this)
eXoDuS
thats it
A7
StaatsOne +1
Jackals
Witchah!
BladeOfCreation
Patch 1.07 adds some great features, but the fact that this is their third game with serious inventory issues is kind of annoying
eXoDuS
is witcher the game of the year?
ColoringSquared
As a person who did not like the combat of 2 and couldn't get into it, has it been made more enjoyable?
Jackals
maybe, that or MGS
StaatsOne
splatoon
Senator
Maybe, so far, but Fallout 4 is still coming...
eXoDuS
is mgs this year or next
Jackals
Yeah combat is better
A7
Andy Ihnatko had a great line: "I've never felt an ounce of empathy towards a Marvel character and I've never laughed during a DC movie." Same goes for all of the various properties. Do you want the blase entertainment, or an attempt at something meaningful?
StaatsOne
speaking of games that arn't fun
Jackals
MGS5 is September 1st.
eXoDuS
really?
i dont buy new games but i will get mgs day one
Senator
Witcher 3 has been one of my favorites so far this year.
Gwent is surprisingly fun.
wizardofvideogam
It's called Terry Brooks-Block
eXoDuS
aint sci fi and fantasy the same thing?
A7
Days of Future Past
Jackals
Yes, about 36 days away
stedman
anybody reading Armada? Is it out yet?
jackal|60378
Gwent is like its own game
Jackals
Sci Fi is technically Fantasy in the future
jackal|60378
busy collecting Gwent cards..
A7
stedman Oh, it's out, and it's hot garbage.
stedman
A7: really??
whoa, ok
XOXOGossipGita
A7 you are right on the money
eXoDuS
thats what i though jackal
XOXOGossipGita
A7 re: DC and marvel
wizardofvideogam
but what about the Unicorns?!
stedman
ok, i'm going to pass on it, thanks A7
eXoDuS
what do you prefer gita
A7
stedman Yeah, it read, if this is possible, like fan fiction of Ready Player One. It's the worst of nostalgia.
Jackals
The Wizardy series is fantasy but has futurey stuff
stedman
good to know
XOXOGossipGita
eXoDuS i just like weird stuff! i was a big vertigo fan back in the day
AppleCider
VERTIGO
eXoDuS
i missed the vertigo bus
BladeOfCreation
The Witcher mythos are much more Slavic than Tolkien
AppleCider
I read so many Vertigo titles
eXoDuS
i am barely joining image
XOXOGossipGita
i've also started getting into creator owned stuff - still read mainstream comics too, i just like writers who aren't beholden to like, massive summer crossovers
AppleCider
Because it got big when I was in middle and high school
XOXOGossipGita
i think i'm the only Shade the Changing Man stan in the entire world
eXoDuS
my first book will be United We Stand by Brian K Vaughn
XOXOGossipGita
I loved Shade so much
Jackals
yeah Witcher is more Germanic and Slavic, and the Skellige Isles is a mix of Irish, Socttish, and Scandinavian cultures.
Yeah, the quest design is neat in that way.
Cyberpunk 2077
eXoDuS
i heard heroes of the storm. lol
Jackals
hopefully it has a cyber version of CBGBs and I can watch the robot version of Talking Heads
Senator
The world of The Witcher III is so complete, very well crafted and thoughtfully done.
eXoDuS
the worlds end with you
thats a great game. good job gita
Jackals
luckily Chrono Trigger is a short game
stedman
i can say defender for the atari vcs is my chrono trigger with respect to my mom kicking out the power supply when i was about to score 1 million points
eXoDuS
Journey was the game that opened my eyes
infernocloud
Metal Gear Solid was what changed my world when it comes to video games. So much freedom, so much cinematography
Jackals
mine was maybe Wind Waker or Mother 3.
TWEWY is so good. It's sad Jupiter hasn't made a major game since
eXoDuS
the game that really opened my eyes was Larry Suit leisure
probably for the wrong reasons
A7
I'm with infernocloud MGS was the first game I played where it dawned on me that there was more to the medium than button mashing and high scores.
ColoringSquared
I was like 8 and did all kinds of guessing to get pass the password system in Leisure Suit.
stedman
ultima 4
XOXOGossipGita
Mother 3 rules
eXoDuS
there was a password?
ColoringSquared
Yeah, it was age based questions.
Jackals
yeah, TWEWY and Earthbound are sort of the few games that really try to do that.
SushiX
FFVII
PurpleHydra
Tomb raider with its 3d perspective
acornayho
much like Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana and Final Fantasy 3 on SNES expanded my mind as to how deep games could be.
AppleCider
Myst for me, I had never played a 3D game before that, especially one with such a huge amount of immersion
stedman
i was blown away by the early ultima games
XOXOGossipGita
oh man applecider, myst is SO IMPORTANT
ColoringSquared
Bioshock is mine for narrative experiences.
PurpleHydra
castle wolfenstien 3d
XOXOGossipGita
the SUPER SECRET game project that is gonna go up at the gallery i co-founded is partially inspired by myst
Senator
Yes, MYST was huge for me too.
jackal|60378

A7
I love having this conversation with people. Everyone has an interesting, eclectic list.
stedman
exactly, i felt the same way when i entered a town in ultima
XOXOGossipGita

ColoringSquared
D&D Warriors of the Eternal Sun was my first big rpg.
Jackals
it was Pokemon Black & White which was based off NYC.
eXoDuS
herzog zwei blew my mind. i never played a game like that one
stedman
people going about their daily lives
StaatsOne
Yohsi's island for SNES
SushiX
Halo2 for competitive multiplayer
StaatsOne

ColoringSquared
I'm glad they didn't have an hour counter for Halo 2.
Jackals
Yeah the developers of The World Ends With You have only worked on Picross games since it seems. Sad.
StaatsOne
maybe the original half life
SushiX
Resident Evil 4
