No more uggos edition.

Rise was announced for the bing bing wahoo machine but it didn't say it was an exclusive so it may head to other consoles at some point, or not but switch emulation is a thing so who cares. Obvious changes are that you get an odd grapple that lets you jump around, might be cool. Also the handlers are qts but its not like there was a really big bar to pass. Also you get a dog and I'm sure there is porn of it fucking a huntress already somewhere on the internet. All in all looks like sort of a return to form with some notes taken from world.
World has some shit being announced at some point, probably another elder dragon and some speculate its Fatalis, guess we will find out. 

Anons occasionally get together to play p3rd but I'm sure some could get together to play 4u and the other games. I would like to see that again because it was pretty fun. 
So anons whats your favorite

Because it's the hardest gamemode of the hardest MH game that exists to this day.

Strictly speaking if 'hard' is what you're looking for it would be some of the power creep retarded shit from frontier which is literally impossible without mutiple layers of guts/auto ancient potions/etc, but MHFU is recommended for being the absolute best all-round monster hunter. 3U has the most developed combat otherwise, 4U is the best gimmick-hunter that hasn't gone off the rails into world (and presumably rise) territory where it's just a different game, 1 has arguably better aesthetic (less epik draygins and power creep) but dead servers and max fucking tedium for consumables. FU has the best mix of everything.
Leaks were spot on. Capcom just confirmed that Monster Hunter Rise is coming to PC in 2022.
>“We received a lot of requests for a PC version of Monster Hunter Rise, particularly from overseas players, and so we have decided to develop a version for PC, which we aim to release in early 2022,” said Tsujimoto. “This is still under development, so I’d like to share more detailed information when the time is right.”

2 weeks ago, the vita turned 9 years old. A fun little handheld that didn't reach its full potential due to so many terrible decisions. Fortunately homebrew development is still very active and will only get better. So without further ado:
And most importantly, are you still having fun?

SA is some mix between the android port with ps2 shit added in. The Vice City one was based off a PC project that reversed engineered the entire code with bug fixes while adding shit that the various versions had over the other. Though Take Two didn't like that and did a DMCA takedown of the Vice City project's github as well as a GTA 3 project that was by the same team.

I have a 2ds for gba/ds/3ds and a vita for psx/psp/vita games. I enjoy that I have portable handhelds that with a little homebrew allow me to play with no issues. If you want to play games on the Sony side of the aisle, and like handhelds over using emulators on the PC, then certainly is a good choice.

This console turned 26 recently.  So, anon, what are some of your favorite PS1 games? Have you been playing any of them recently?
To this day there still a ton of games from this console I have yet to finish. It had an amazing catalog. To list a few of the games that made this console what it is: the Crash Bandicoot trilogy and CTR, the Spyro trilogy, Medievil 1 and 2, the Twisted Metal games, RE 1, 2 and 3, Silent Hill, SotN, Klonoa, Tomba 1 and 2, Jumping Flash 1 and 2, MGS, FF 7,8 and 9, the Tomb Raider games, Tekken 3, Pepsiman and so many others. Are there any not so well known games from this console that you recommend?

If you really want to get the ball rolling just dump and translate the japanese script.
That way when someone with technical knowledge and interest in the game comes around they can just insert the script.
Honestly fan translations are a fruitless and thankless endeavor. I respect the people who put in the work to make an accurate and quality fan translation in this day and age but I'll always think of them as stupid fools for bothering to do it
Imagine paying top dollar for a butchered game.
That's a cool watch.

i honestly found crash 3's motorbike races ok, only 3 excluding the special stage so it's not that bad
did crash 3 have the plane levels? they were kinda gay, although not as bad as WoC snowboarding and shit
i hate the underwater levels though, fucking shit to play but my most hated crash levels were in c2, the jetpack. thankfully they're fairly short and only 2 again, excluding NIGGER at the end but they're so tedious.
I agree, cool fucking watch

I've been listening to 3D Sonic games OST. Crush 40 gives all of these games a pretty good soundtrack. It's usually what I end up remembering when playing sonic games.

連用形 に {basic motion verb} expresses your purpose in moving from one place to another. 見に行く, go to see. もらいに来た, came to receive. オナニーをしに帰っていった, went home to whack off.
I'd say you're completely right. Tomato's translation would fit $PLAYER_NAMEさんよろしくね! better.

The gameplay is nothing to write home about aside from a few gimmicks, but the story is fun. It's a pretty unique series.

The English patch for Mother 1 came with a ring that increases EXP gains, I think it was called Easy Ring or Easy Mode Ring. Now this is JLT so you'll probably want to play it in Japanese, but you might be able to find a patch that only adds that ring. The original EXP curve is god-awful and I wouldn't blame you for not playing the game on it.

I'm waiting for Youma Gakuen Ki. It's a PS2 classic from 2004 that recently got a remaster for the Switch. Burgers already got it digitally, but I'm waiting for my superior yuro physical copy, which will arrive later this year.
Until then I will either play Xenosaga or Suikoden.

Or after, if Definitive Edition is anything to go by.
At least most weapon types have a few good arts (although defensively it's hard to beat Ghost Walker unless you set up for reflect). Compare that to the original, where 4 characters are really good (3 if you don't know what you're doing with Fiora), Melia is alright but outclassed, Rikki is situational at best, and Sharla is terrible. Again, we can say that Ether Blossom Dance is the dominant strategy, and it is pretty good and fairly easy to use, but the knife is just as good if not better, Black Butterfly/Black Bane is a good combo and they aren't even TP arts, and the knife is meant to be support. I could say the same thing about Dual Guns in and of themselves, actually. I guess X is more focused on what a single player can do, while the first game requires a party, so having a few different options for builds might feel better than having the same party of 3 all the time, regardless of which you prefer playing as. Your allies in X are kinda worthless though, they're stat-sticks at best.

>Compare that to the original
The original is leagues ahead of X where 90% of the arts are useless and literally every NPC is terrible and useless.

You keep saying that, but provide no evidence. About half of most characters arts in the first game are useless, and again, half of them aren't great endgame. In X, the NPCs aren't great endgame, but interestingly during the game several of them are quite good when you play as them (Elma comes to mind as somebody who can carry a party during the early game if you play as her). Compare that to Sharla who barely does her job as a healer when you don't play as her, is barely better when you do, and when you get Dunban she immediately becomes useless because you can damage race the enemies better without her. Even a pretty good character like Melia is a victim of the situation she's put in, she shines a lot more in Future Connected where she's second or third out of four (although the fourth is a Sharla clone, for what it's worth). Melia's AI is notoriously shit, Shulk's isn't great either. At least the NPCs in X can reliably act as a stat stick if needed (although I imagine if I understood how Soul Voices worked a little better, my opinion might change one way or another). I dunno, the first game's combat just bored me at endgame, at least X somewhat keeps things interesting. But X does have a lot more options in general which might be where your complauints

I must be missing something.
I've done every quest available to me and now I can't find any way to progress. I've checked every single pub, talked to every single NPC, went to every city but nothing, seems like I'm softlocked or something. Is such a thing possible in Romancing Saga? This is the SNES version, mind you.
By the way, I still have only 4 people in my party and now they're strong, like 700 HP strong.

Fuck I'm sad now. Are there ANY good looking giant robot games coming out? I know there was one but it was weighted back by ice cream eating and some other junk. I considered getting it cheap at some point.
For stuff that has been around there is megamek, a game where you can impregnate your female enemies you capture after the fights and then let them go create a merc company and play the game based on the battletech tabletop rules. Its contains a lot of stuff and can be pretty fun.Do not confuse this with Battletech the game that came out not to long ago. Megamek is a fan project. 
I also heard something about mektek turning their mechwarror 4 MP servers back on when no one was looking so thats neat.Living legends is still live and has gotten some new mechs and tanks recently too.
As for what I have been playing I've been doing Armored Core Nexus again. I would like to work up to the Last Raven, I hear its ball bustingly hard so it should be fun.

Speaking of single dev mech games, I'm looking for what I remember to be a freeware single dev, single player mech game I saw a long time ago and barely remember. Its graphics design is low polygon. The mechs looked like a hard sci-fi design, similar to VOTOMS or Assault Suits Valken. The player perspective is from the mech cockpit, and the cockpit looks like something out of a flight simulator but without the physical bits and just the electronic overlay. The mech speed is somewhere in between "slow and stompy" and "Gundam", like Border Break or Virtual-On. Can anyone tell me the name of this game?

Which of the games have you anons been playing? There hasn't been much news recently aside from the 25th anniversary announcements, the confirmation of how we're getting new aircraft, and the official Ace Combat youtube channel posting big juicy pieces of lore that nobody understands because it's all in Nipponese. There is a 25 page Famitsu article that was made just for the anniversary and was translated by some autists, which can be found here in parts:
The article goes into detail about different aspects of the series from its appeal to fans, unique aspects of each game, and the histoy of its development.

What is Ace Combat?

Ace Combat is a series of arcade-y dogfighting sims where you pilot a multitude of fictional and real planes in various conflicts in the alternate world of Strangereal. This game isn't like other flight sims such as DCS world or EF2000, in that it doesn't strive for an absurd amount of realism in its flight model. Instead, Ace Combat is all about fun. You will unleash hundreds of missiles, shoop da whoop your lasers, and execute absurdly high G turns. It is a series known for its anime plotlines, giant superweapons, amazing music, and gameplay that never gets old. So get out there and make Belka proud.
