    StaceyPowers reacted to The Blackangel in What will you do with your current console/games when you get a PS5 or Xbox Series X?   
    I can't say anything for anyone else, but I am definitely not selling mine. I may sell some of the duplicate systems I have, but I'm not selling any of the ones that I have hooked up to play.

    I wasn't going to mention it, but I have BPD as well. That could be the reason our thinking was so similar.

    Hatred. Nuff said.
    But for those wanting more info, I get to go around slaughtering unhindered. No moral constraints, no cares for who it is that I kill. The world is finally black and white. None of that “gray area” bullshit. Misanthropic desires sated. Bloodthirst quenched. Stress relieved, until tomorrow. Then we begin having fun again.
    I guess that also offers a bit of explanation behind my hollow teardrop tattoo.

    I have to say, the game I've been playing recently represents me pretty well. Harvest Moon: A Tale of Two Towns has to do with polar opposites (I'm borderline- I see the world that way most of the time). It involves living a quiet life, which I generally do... And to some people, these games are just awkward, also like me. I can probably think of other games that represent me too, though. This one just felt fitting the most right now.

    StaceyPowers got a reaction from DC in Ask Stacey   
    Actually, that is a perfect example. Anytime an abuser puts you in a double-bind, that is exactly what is happening.

    In that case, my example is when I was told for years i was "abusive' while having autistic meltdowns. I didn't have the confidence to defend myself, and was consistently "wrong." Believing I was wrong didn't make any logical sense to me, but I felt like I had no choice if I wanted to keep my relationships long enough to make them work again. It didn't stop until I got a diagnosis and learned to stand up for myself.

    There is definitely a sense of irony there. I am sad that the game is delayed. Although, as a selfish aside, it does mean less time for me to have to avoid spoilers before I can get a copy. And as @The Blackangel mentioned, as they are still weeding out bugs, perhaps this will lead to an improved release when it does finally happen.

    StaceyPowers reacted to The Blackangel in Simulator games appeal?   
    I have one simulator game that I've been playing. It's Thief Simulator. A bit odd, but a lot of fun. It would only appeal to a select few in a small demographic. So I doubt it will be very popular. It was, if I remember right, the game that was selling for 1 penny. If it wasn't that one then I think it was the one that I bought for either 19 cents or 49 cents. I honestly don't remember. But I do know for a fact that it was less than 50 cents. At least when I bought it, it was.

    I'm a big fan of simulators myself. They let me quasi-experience things I myself would never experience in the real world, which I find super enjoyable. I want to experience all sorts of things, so for me, who is disabled and barely leaves her house, simulation games are a great method of pretending I have experience in life.

    For me it was GTA 5 over all previus GTA games, I do love most of the main GTA games from GTA 3, Vice city , San andreas and GTA 4 and most still hold up today, but GTA 5 is much better in many aspects (except for the music)and its now hard to go back to any of the previus entries if not for nostalgic reasons.

    I think for me, Rune Factory 2 really cut my interest in the original Rune Factory because it moved at a faster pace and made me realize how slow and tiresome I found the original, which I didn't notice until after I'd played the sequel. None of the other sequels have made 2 obsolete to me, and I'd like to try a full play through of the original again someday, but that day is a long day's away because I just couldn't handle how slow it was back then, and I'm not sure I can now either. That's just because I have a very small attention span, though.

    StaceyPowers reacted to The Blackangel in Speedruns   
    Something that can be fun as far as speedruns go would be if you had 2 full setups side by side, and you and a friend were racing each other to get to a certain point. Like if you were both playing Zelda OoT and starting from the beginning of the game when Navi was initially sent to Link, and then race each other to the point where Link pulls out the Master Sword. No game guides, no cheat codes (if any exist), and no rules regarding side stops like skulltulas or catching all the chickens in Kakariko village to get the bottle. That would actually be fun.

    The only good thing I can see from the delay is right in what he said.
    "The good news is, we're nearly done with development of The Last Of Us Part II. We are in the midst of fixing our final bugs."
    Every game, despite honest efforts of honest developers has bugs when it hits the shelves that they didn't catch before it was released. So this delay can give them time to weed out bugs that they missed and give the initial release a better game. I'm not trying to shit on anyone. No one is perfect. But, in my eyes, more time to develop equals better results on the finished product.

    @The Blackangel asked in another thread if those of us who play Skyrim will stop once ES VI comes out.
    This made me curious how common this behaviour is. Has anyone here abandoned all previous entries in a series upon getting the newest game in that series? Like never played Fallout 3 or NV anymore after getting Fallout 4, or never playing Oblivion or Morrowind again upon getting Skyrim?
    I wouldn’t expect this to apply to linear games, but I figure with open world games, maybe some people do have this play style.
    For me, new entries in series don’t make old entries obsolete unless those entries were already very weak to begin with. They just add on to the existing world and give me more content to explore.

    StaceyPowers reacted to The Blackangel in Best ways to get gamers to connect emotionally with characters?   
    I’ve never been welcome in any crowd. Always rejected, before I even say my name. So I get attached to the group on FF8. It starts with a loner who isn’t interested in playing around and is all about getting the job done. Then slowly, after working with the other 5 characters they all end up becoming as close as blood. They end up remembering childhood things that they had all forgotten that brings them even closer still. Since I never had an actual family, and literally never once had a friend, I get attached to them. I feel like I’m part of the group when I play the game.

    Genji: Days of Blade comes to mind
     

     
    I was SO excited for this PS3 launch title one as I loved the original Genji on the PS2. Things started off promisingly as this game was gorgeous for it's time, and would probably still hold up quite well today. Unfortunately it appears that all that effort focused on the games graphics are aesthetic design should have been better split on actual game. The story was boring and didn't lead of its predecessor very well and the combat felt slow and disjointed compared to the previous effort. Then there was the camera, oh GOD the camera! It would pan away putting enemies off-screen, it followed the player's character way to close and just the player had no input on it at all. It was just not intuitive at all and made the game almost unplayable. What a disappointment, but it was the perfect game summarize the PS3's early days. Prettier than the PS2, but worse.

    AOE3 and Twilight Princess make the list for me. AOE had a very eye pleasing look, but the game was just horrible. It was tedious, boring, and just a pain in the ass. And WTF was up with the cheats? A monster truck and a bouncing bust of George Washington?
    Twilight Princess was absolutely stunning graphically. But the gameplay was so boring. Hyrule had little to offer, the dungeons were cheaply made, it was overblown, and being turned into a damn wolf was the straw that broke the camels back. Not to mention being forced to get whatever move the game wanted you to learn and not letting you progress in the game until you do get it. I know some are optional, but that’s just bullshit. Link is a swordsman, not a fucking ninja.

    StaceyPowers reacted to The Blackangel in In what video game location would you most like to eat a picnic?   
    Pretty much any cemetery. I find more peace and serenity in cemeteries than I do anywhere else. When I was younger, If I wasn't able to sleep, I would go to a nearby cemetery with a blanket and a pillow. Sometimes in a mausoleum, other times just out in the open. I have always waited until late at night to walk in a cemetery. The stillness of the night, and the quiet is so relaxing. There was a forgotten cemetery in the woods near the house I grew up in that I spent a large amount of time at. The most recent headstone had a death date in 1927. The rest were from the mid to late 1800's. A lot of them were veterans from the Civil War. I spent time pulling up weeds, and trying to re-erect stones that had fallen over. Some were broken, so there wasn't too much I could do for them. I even took some black paint and repainted in the names and dates and everything on the old ones. They were limestone headstones, so they were worn down like crazy. That's the weird thing. The one that had the 1927 date on it was marble. All the rest were limestone. That always perplexed me. If I wasn't stuck in a damn wheelchair, I would go back to it. I really miss being able to visit that cemetery. I think I'm the only one that even knows about it anymore.
