    I just realized that every single character in your party in Heartbeat is a woman. Almost all the major NPCs too.

    I'm glad someone else had that realization. There're only 3 male characters in the game of note. Grandpa,
    Blitz, and Caesar
    .

    I thought it was a typo when the game referred to brandishing "her" weapon constantly until I looked into it and realized, nope, all women.

    You liking it @Aistan ? I thought it was a really nice game.

    I am enjoying it, yes. It's a cute story but there's a lot of heavy stuff too. It's well balanced.

    In visual novel news, we're probably getting a simultaneous japanese/english release of Umineko's "sequel" Ciconia, which I assume is the first time a high profile VN got this treatment. Not taking any chances with MangaGamer links, but they got all the info about it on their site.

    And before this causes ravenous thoughts: Not pink, not hentai. Sorry Pixie.

    Tangledeep finished, if you're itching for a turn based roguelike it's definitely one to pick up. It's even got monster breeding and item worlds and the like

    Is there anything permanently missable in Heartbeat? There's all these traversal abilities tied to specific characters but they eventually leave your party and I can't remember all the individual instances i'd potentially use them to go back to beforehand.

    What's the better "quick play" game: Into the Breach or Oxygen Not Included? I know they're both different types of strategy, but both look good to me. I loved FTL, but only kind of got into Don't Starve, so I was already leaning ItB (plus I hear the soundtrack is great). I've been playing Destiny 2 and Sekiro for so long now, I need a "breather" game before I jump into a major RPG or something.

    ONI isnt even a little bit quick play. The dupes wont die without a fight and you can easily spend 10-20 hours on one playthrough. Its nothing like Dont Starve, its closer to something like Civilization.

    I havent played it but you are probably better off with Into the Breach, if thats what youre looking for.

    If Quick Play is the criteria then Into the Breach. Haven't played Oxygen Not Include but that doesn't seem like something to just do in little bits.

    Exhibit A: the Nosferatu nerd Mitnik in VtM: Bloodlines. He doesn't miss sunlight or people since he stayed in a dark room in front of his computer all the time anyways.

    Into The Breach is a great quick-play game, not that you'll stop at just one or two or five encounters though, but you could if you wanted to (you won't want to).

    Plus it's surprisingly easy to hop back into a mission that you ended your last session in the middle of. Figuring out the best way to get through a fight is pretty difficult, but there's a fundamental simplicity to it that means you don't have to remember the complicated gambit you were in the middle of a week ago, you can just assess the situation from scratch and proceed from there.

    Absolutely this. The run-up time to making meaningful, informed decisions is like, 15 seconds. Balanced against the >1 hour spent reading and cross-referencing before unpausing in the likes of CK2 or any 4X game, it's brilliant for parents

    Hey! Hey guys!


    ... HOW ABOUT A CONTEST?


    Yeah, I haven't done one of these in a while. So why not, right?

    I should start with the bait, huh? Bait is good. Like blood. Blood is good. Oh, speaking of blood... Yes, you're vying for a copy of this:

    gonn0lxclyyu.png

    Who wouldn't want this? I mean, you'd have to be crazier than a Malkavian not to want this, amirite?

    Ok so you're gonna need to have at least a rudimentary knowledge of Vampire: The Masquerade...

    See, starting in May, I'll be running a Vampire (5th Edition) campaign for my gaming group. Should be lots of fun! There'll be cosplay. There'll be goblets of blood passed around! Wait, no. Forget I said that part. That's a secret.

    So this campaign will be set in Boston. Camarilla territory. With all kinds of fun places to set scenes. And not too far from werewolves, for added fun.

    Yeah, I hear the Nossie over there in the shadows asking for the bottom line. Whaddaya gotta do? Fine. I need more NPC vampires to populate the city. Sooooo... Create a vampire! Tell me as much as you want/can about them. Make them interesting as possible. My favorite, chosen arbitrarily based on what tickles my fancy, will get worked into my campaign somehow and YOU will own VTMB2! We both win!

    So, there ya go. Get your vampire on. I'll leave this open for an undetermined amount of time - basically until I've gotten enough entries and/or it seems like interest has flagged.

    EDIT: Clarification - don't bother with stats. I don't need stats and not everyone has played Vampire V5. I just need vamps with personality and style. :)

    Reposting in case anyone missed it... NEED MOAR VAMPIRES PLZ

    After a long time of eyeballing it, finally bought and started Artifact Adventure.

    Game is basically classic Dragon Quest but with the option to screw other people over for fun and profit. First order of business was I sold all three of my party members into slavery for a huge sum of gold, making sure money wouldn't be a problem for the foreseeable future.

    This left me vulnerable without a healer so of course I went to a nearby town that relies on their healing artifact to get by and took it from them.

    Good start so far. Going to be rough trying to do this solo/DQ1 style but I'm confident if I'm enough of a douchebag, I'll find a way to see it through.

    I am tearing through Hand of Fate.

    Every moment I am playing it I am in a state of joy.

    But I'm coming so close to beating it. It makes me a little sad. Also the Dealer is turning into a grouch.

    But then I remember I bought Hand of Fate 2.
