Quote from: Zetetic on September 16, 2021, 05:25:31 PMMost games involve some sort of experiential loop, not least some of the ones you've seemed very enamoured with.
Quote from: Zetetic on September 16, 2021, 08:09:49 PMI would be interested to know if Deathloop mostly relies on developing the player's skills or knowledge, or if there's some mechanical aspect to improving through the loops. (But I'm trying to avoid watching people play it...)
Quote from: Chedney Honks on September 21, 2021, 08:11:59 PMInteresting perspective, Trent.Most of what I've read says that it's fun enough, great voice work, but entirely fails to live up to the concept they missold. It spoonfeeds you to fuck and is linear as a cunt. Requires zero player creativity, just the ability to do as you're told in sequence, with added patronisation if you dither.

Quote from: Chedney Honks on September 26, 2021, 09:20:29 PMHave you played many roguelikes, Trent? Not a loaded question or gotcha. Just that this does seem quite narrow compared to the pre-release marketing. Having read more and watched some midgame footage, it doesn't appear that there's anything novel about it from a gameplay or structural perspective. I expected something closer to Hitman but it doesn't seem to offer anything like that kind of freedom. Not a problem if it wasn't intended that way, and it's daft when people criticise a game for what was only ever in their head, but the marketing and hype suggested more diverse and creative options than the narrow solutions available.I will pick it up, anyway. I'm going to give Death Stranding a proper go first but I'll get it next.

Quote from: TrenterPercenter on September 27, 2021, 11:49:03 AMAnyway I've not played any time-loop games before so perhaps this isn't new and you should all avoid it.
Quote from: TrenterPercenter on September 27, 2021, 11:49:03 AMroguelikes and roguelites - I've no idea.Anyway I've not played any time-loop games before so perhaps this isn't new and you should all avoid it. I buy about 3 games a year tops (so far Returnal and now this and I took 6 months to complete Returnal) so don't take my word for anything when it comes to this stuff.
Quote from: Zetetic on September 27, 2021, 12:01:10 PMI think it's probably silly to insist on essential characteristics for any kind of "-like". "Like" means a resemblance, and things can resemble each other or family of things in different ways.
Quote from: ImmaculateClump on September 27, 2021, 12:10:18 PMCalling this game a roguelike makes exactly the same amount of sense as calling mario a real time strategy game.
