What with PAX coming up soon, the place where penny arcade showcase a crapload of indie developed games, I thought I'd bring up a list of what was awesome last year and the year before.

I dig the Fighting Fantasy Project, always liked those books, but found it tedious to always write your stats and roll dices, good thing their game does everything for you.

What are they made with these RPGs? It doesn´t seem to be RPGmaker.

Almost all of them are made with their own engines. These guys can program. Theres a shitload of these games all over the place. Theres just no possible way someone can look at the PC and say theres nothing there they want.

I hadn't heard of that one. I checked out some details and it sounds cool. I'm downloading now.

Its really awesome

This video seems to be slow as the game moves faster than this, but here

Of coruse I probably enjoy it a bit more than the average person as the Ragnarok Online fanservice is a plus, but its still a fantastic game.

I hope Noitu love 2 will get ported to the DS since its the mouse can be basically be replaced by the stylus

DS is unlikley, WiiWare however is VERY likley. Nintendo almost has no rules when it comes to WiiWare so if that guy wanted to port it to Wii to make a buck, he could do so.

I've been playing the ragnorok one and it's pretty fun. I was disappointed they didn't have the advanced classes though. I wanted to make an assassin stack him up with critical hit cards unfortunaly as far as I can tell you can't upgrade equipment or collect cards. Still fun though.

The Noitu Love 2 Demo is out. I got ahold of it and Megauploaded it for you guys.

Its really fun, I just dont like being tied to my desk. If it came out for WiiWare I'd totally buy it though.

Anyways here you go.

Why not get a laptop? You wouldnt need anything too powerful to run these sorts of games.

You're only having a little bit of beer today? You don't need a glass that big! Throw it out!

Wait, what? You mean you might drink more someday?

...and something else other than beer?!

But why?!

Investing in a laptop, of all things, purely for gaming is probably the stupidest thing you could ever do if you already have a PC and consoles and crap like that.


Unless you're some kind've horrendous WoW addict that needs to raid-on-the-go

or a millionaire.

I think seraph said his system is a few years old or something? It was his girlfriend I think that got the uber system. I thought laptop might be more to his liking for upgrading.

Well I already decided I'm not going to spend the cash on PC gaming anymore, and actually yeah I was thinking of getting a small little laptop for my next PC. The only thing I'm hesitant about is that I do alot of Video editing now for my reviews, and that gets system intensive.

But back to my original point, I'm not sure a laptop would even help the situation. I've tried to play games on the couch before using a laptop on my lap and it dosent work too well. But thanks for the suggestion.

Dell and HP have ultra portables coming out soon that are a lot more functional than the current Asus EEE's, and they are updating theirs soon too.

Although the HP's chipset is older so personally I'd wait to see if the change the via to the atom. If not the Dell and Asus EEE would be the way to go.

The main parts for video editing are lots of ram, like 2gigs, and a dual core cpu of the high end variety. Quad core would be even better. But that sort of chip in a laptop gets super expensive. Compared to a pc with the same stats that is.

Seraph, you ever tried using controllers for your pc games? I know some games wont work that way but quite a few do.

I suggest the program "total game control"

Seraph, you ever tried using controllers for your pc games? I know some games wont work that way but quite a few do.Yeah, I have a nice one too. Its great for games that support it and work well with them. I played through MGS2, PSU and GGXX that way (all of which were console to PC ports). Games that are designed for PC's usually require a plethora of hotkeys and mouse support. Some do support gamepads but the experince is usually a gimped one.

I guess its the kind of game you're after really. Some games CANT be done on a controller. Theres too much depth to the game.

Seraph
04-10-2008, 02:49 PM
Well what you call depth I call complexity. I'm not really a fan of those kind of games. Its not that im dumb or cant comprehend them, I just dont want to be bothered.

As I get older, I'm realizing that Simplicity is my favorite flavor. Games can have a ton of competitive and strategic depth without being complex.
