    Poster reveal for Twisted Metal (Peacock series debuting July 27th - 10 episode series) ign.com/articles/twist…

    finally a TV project about a game with a good story

    There are a few comedy writers on there - folks from Bojack Horseman, comedian Shaun Diston - and Peacock keeps making interesting moves.

    I'm not saying it's a guaranteed slam dunk or anything, but I'm at least curious, which is surprising for Twisted Metal.

    It's been a long time since I've played an Armored Core game, but I don't remember them being so fast. This is giving me almost Z.O.E. vibes.

    I don't hate it though.

    I actually think it'd be incredibly easy to do a Lost-style approach to a Twisted Metal TV show.

    Each episode just focus on one of the drivers. Tell their story, which are occasionally bug-nuts insane.

    Treat it sort of like a Twilight Zone.

    All fighting games are accessible right up until you go against someone who knows how to play, and I'll also include stuff like Smash Bros in here even though it's a party game

  • TcheldorTcheldor Registered User regular
    @Poorochondriac hit me up with any questions as to the systems. I'm such a big fan of Library of Ruina, so I hope you enjoy it too. Did you ever play Lobotomy Corp.? The plot will explain everything you need to know from that game if you're concerned about the story (and IMO, I think the story is better for you not knowing the info because the revelations hit the player and characters at the same time instead of that dramatic irony of the player knowing something and waiting for the characters to learn.)

    Yeah the easier a game is, the easier it is for good players to completely dominate anyone slightly less experienced. The most important way to make fighting games accessible is to just make them convenient and hassle-free to play, and cool enough to get people excited about working through the losses and improving.

    I've been trying out some older games, and the fast speed and jankiness can actually work in a new player's favor quite a bit because better players just have less control over the situation.

    As a fighting game enthusiast, I think Street fighter 6 is bad, Street fighter has been bad for a while and keeps getting worse.
    As a party games enthusiast, I apreciate how accesible it is for beginners.

    Once again they doubled down with an aesthetic that I personally dont like, so I wont be touching it with a 10 ft pole. Lets see how it fares against Smash Bros, if people actually adopt it as a party game.

    For someone who hasn't played many fighting games and the last go-around was a dabble in a Soul Calibur on the 360, what do you recommend as a well-designed game that is fun to spectate as well as play and accessible without being super dumbed down?

    oofff, there are so many good 2D fighting games, a bit dated sure, but very fun and not very difficult as a begginer, 90s-2000s Neo Geo fighting games cant go wrong, Last Blade 1 & 2 are probably my favorites from that era, The King Of Fighters (some will say ´95, others will say ´98 ) are fun, they have a couple of different game modes and have a big, diverse cast to choose from.

    For a quick game, local party style, Smash Bros is still king in my eyes its just a good combination of fun and accesible. Marvel Vs. Capcom start getting into the buton mashing territory, but are definitely fun, you just need to learn a couple of moves that work on most of the characters and they have a nice recognizable roster, you can pretty much wing it with whatever your favorite superhero is.

    My favorite franchise, mechanics wise, is Virtua Fighter, but it seems designed to frustrate new players (and old players with the shitty online servers)

    I tried the SF6 demo and while I think World Tour is a neat idea I still just... don't like how you fight in fighting games

    I played some of the PS2 era FromSoft mech games and never found them quite as accessible to my brain as ZoE, but they did prime me well for Dark Souls, which takes a lot of their mech games' DNA in terms of the weapon and magic interface controls

    I'm certainly hoping that AC VI takes the best bits of polish and design lessons (plus the filthy stacks of cash) from the SoulsBorneRing model and folds them back into the AC model, because I've been wanting this game in some form for years

  • shoeboxjeddyshoeboxjeddy Registered User regular

    Episode 1 Racer is actually very fun, this is better than we've seen from GWG for a bit.

    Motion controls are unintuitive to basically any other form of gaming unless you're really good at Skate, Windjammers, or certain character action games

    That said once it clicks with one fighting game, at least that kind of unlocks most other fighting games to some degree (though obviously 2.5D games like Soul Calibur or Tekken have a whole extra input dimension relative to classic 2D fighters in the Street Fighter mould)

    If it's more like twisted metal 2 then it could be a goofy dark comedy where hijinks ensue.

    I love Strive, and it was my first "I am going to GET INTO A FIGHTING GAME" fighting game. Thankfully, the character I thought looked cool as shit and wanted to use (Giovanna) was relatively easy for me, a person who has little time for insane stick motion inputs, to use semi-competently.

    if i get armored core that means i will be playing three mech games at once.

  • PreacherPreacher Registered User regular
    I'll get armored core, but that's batting up along side star field, so as usual two huge releases near each other. Though last time I played an AC game I bounced off it hard.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    If I recall, original PS1 Armored Core needed to use separate save files for different mech configurations? I remember having multiple memory cards for it at least.

    I really hope I like Armored Core VI. Despite thinking giant robots are super cool, I think I've bounced off of nearly every mech game I've ever played, including one of the prior Armored Core games (3 I think? It was on the PS2).
