Anything that involves stat customization instantly makes balance irrelevant.

Also, hear about the Fox amiibo that placed third in a tournament? Just goes to show how good (or OP) they can get.

Guys, actually Amiibos have boosted stats at higher levels, even without equipment... I only plan to use them to do fun stuff with my sister/friends though... I'm probably gonna end up with a handful of them to display/use for fun.  :P

 

Also, the 3DS version's online has felt VASTLY superior to Brawl's to me. I've had so many laggy Brawl matches but a lot more not laggy Smash 3DS matches...

 

Does anyone feel like it's cheating to use a hammer on the collect all custom moves/equipment challenge?  :P

I did hear about the Fox amiibo, but technically it wouldn't exactly be a fair fight but still pretty funny, anyone see that picture of a Fox amiibo in front of a gamecube controller? 

 

I'm still waiting until Christmas to get Smash bros. for WiiU but I'm hecka excited for it...

 

I feel so much better at smash bros. now then I was in my younger days in Brawl...

No more sideways wiimotes for me  :P

Yes. The only thing you get is a trophy. What's the point of getting a trophy you didn't earn? I wouldn't be able to look at it without feeling like I failed at 100% completing the game.

 

I accidentally used a hammer in Brawl when I borrowed it from a friend at first, and felt so terrible. When I got the game myself, I deleted the data and started over so I could actually 100% the game. It's a permanent loss, and I feel like not having all the hammers there next to the challenge board means you failed and can never complete the game.

 

Basically, I'm better than that, and I just have to prove it :P

 

But I've been one random hat away from 100%ing Smash 3DS for quite some time now.

Going with Amiibos, I've heard some talk going around in some smash bros sites about making Amiibo-only tournaments. 

 

So then it is about how you trained your Amiibo, not about how good you are. Which sounds incredibly interesting to me. I'd watch that.

 

As well, the first 4v4 smash tournament was recently. Was really fun to watch, even if it was a little campy at times. The fact it became almost like a MOBA was really cool. Using Rob for long-range support, Game and Watch as a carry for charge-bucket teams, supported with a Samus or someone.

 

I really suggest watching it, it was really cool.

I completely forgot about MMOs. But, I was mainly talking about games where customization is rather unnecessary (Smash) or just lacking in boundaries (most of the sports games I've played).

 

I remember in one of the NFL games I had a while back, I had a team of custom characters with all maxed-out stats. They were so OP, I really didn't have to do anything to win.

 

 


Also, the 3DS version's online has felt VASTLY superior to Brawl's to me. I've had so many laggy Brawl matches but a lot more not laggy Smash 3DS matches...

Smash 4's online is very superior, but it's still pretty sucky. About 1-2 of every 10 matches, I hit some pretty bad lag, which is much, much more than pretty much every other fighter I play.

 

Anyways, thinking about getting into some WRPGs, anyone have anything they'd recommend?

fallout new vegas has god tier writing and weapon design, is the most immersive RPG you'll ever play. great character choices and tons of content, but not very cinematic.

fallout 3 on the other hand has an action movie plot with lots of epic moments. it's all very juvenile. do with that as you will.

skyrim is very shallow but is fun in spite of itself.

morrowind on the other hand immersive and passionately made (bethesda loves their games they just have incompetent devs) and definitely a 10/10 but the graphics have aged poorly and graphics mods might be taxing. if you get the few essential mods to patch up some oversights this will be the best experience

dragon's dogma has phenomenal gameplay and level design and replayability. it's also very difficult. really fantastic game.

the witcher series is very immersive and has great character options, but combat is hit and miss and largely disappointing. the game world is very easy to enjoy

dragon's age origins and the first mass effect were well done RPGs but the later installments were a little dumbed down

system shock 2 and deus ex are classics, cheaply available, and essential experiences.

if you're actually looking for games to deeply immerse yourself in a character the older DnD games are worth a shot. baldur's gate 2 or icewind dale.

 

and while not technically WRPGs, the souls series takes inspiration from western dungeon crawlers. great games if you're smart.

Pretty much the same as Vonn's.

 

I'd suggest Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines (GET THE FAN PATCHES), too. Planescape: Torment is widely hailed as being one of the best games of all time. I've got a softspot for the first seven Ultima games, too, and they're worth a look if only to see how the genre evolved. Same with Wizardry, as well as Might & Magic.

I've played Mass Effect 3, lost interest in it because I was playing it right around when The Last of Us came out and I was getting into Uncharted, and it just felt pretty much exactly like those two games gameplay-wise, and I never got into it as much as I did the other two games.

 

I also have Skyrim, although I only ever play it with so many mods enabled that I'm note even sure what it is anymore.

 

From what I've seen from watching friends play, Fallout looks interesting. Might give it a try.

 

And I also really want to try the Souls games. Played Dark Souls with some friends a while ago where we swapped the controller every time someone died. The controller went around the room multiple times, and it was pretty fun.

Have you played Mother 3?

Because you should. The game is marvellous. I'm in Chapter 5 now, and haven't felt bored a single time. Even shed some tears. The story is a perfect mix of quirkiness and sad elements.

I shed no tears because Sakurai spoiled the game for me! :P

May play Mother 3 in the future. Still need to finish Earthbound first, though.

 

Anyways, with the year coming to a close, what were everyone's favorite games of 2014? Danganronpa 1&2 were probably my overall favorites, with Bayonetta 2 and inFamous: Second Son coming up right behind it, and even though I haven't spent much time with it (okay, I've logged over 40 hours in one week between work and college finals, but I haven't actually had it for too long), Final Fantasy XIV on PS4 is shaping up to be pretty great.

 

Also, after finally experiencing Smash 4's 8-Player Smash with 8 actual people, I can say with confidence that it is the ultimate party game.

Favorite game of 2014 is easily SSB4. I have logged nearly 300 hours across both versions. So awesome!

I don't have a Wii U nooooooooooooo why i wanna try 8-player smaaaaash

But anyways, right now my favorite game of 2014 is a toss-up between SSB4 or Omega Ruby. Both cover familiar territories but are so made of win throughout I still have a great deal.

Also, if I buy a larger SD Card capable of actually holding some data, which 3DS game should I download. Right now, looking at the most recent releases, Ace Attorney Trilogy and Shantae and the Pirate's Curse both stood out to me. I'm just gonna ask if anyone knows whicg title provides the most bang for their buck, because I cant chooooose!

im kinda blue because the only games released in 2014 that i actually bought this year were smash and alpha sapphire, and neither were tremendously impressive so it feels weird having to pick a favourite between the two. like, i guess smash, but tbh they're 'new' games but old experiences. i guess smash?

2014 was kind of a weak year for me, but that might be because I haven't had the cash for Kerfuffle, Bayo2, or Hyrule Warriors.

 

Favorite game from the year is probably Stick of Truth, but even that was severely flawed (a lack of replay value and the immensely short length, as well as a few bugs). Tears to Tiara 2 was interesting from the bit I've played, but I haven't really gotten a chance to dig into it (over 70 hours, good lord)

Heeeyyyy guys and gals I'm back.

 

 

Whoa whoa whoa Please put the desk down! Thank you. *whew* Now, I tried asking this question before, and it died almost instantly. So, I will be very specific.

 

I play nothing M-rated, I own a Wii and Xbox 360, but I do not have steam or Xbox live. So, the question is-

 

Are there any good Skyrim-type games out there not M-rated?

Well, what I mean by Skyrim-type is a sandbox adventure game(yes, I have Minecraft and Terraria already).
