Video Gamers Unite
Do you love playing Video Games? Do you love talking about your experiences of them? Those twists and turns? Those simply beautiful moments of story telling that you just can't contain and more? This is the club for you.

Video Gamers Unite is a club for all you gaming enthusiasts, fans ranging from the Atari 2600 to the Nintendo Wii U. Here you can talk about your gaming experiences, special moments in your gaming life and if you really feel like getting involved more, you can head over to the Video Games (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=27) forum.

General Rules & Guidelines
All forum wide rules apply in this club.

This club won't take over complete discussion of games on PokéCommunity, but simply to allow for a club to exist for gaming enthusiasts; sometimes, gamers need a general place to chat.

Anyone is welcome to join, doesn't matter if you only play Pokemon or you have played since you could hold a controller. It doesn't matter if you own one game or a thousand and one, everyone is welcome.

Please don't use this club to arrange online matches with other members. There is a new board called Online Games (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=245) that you can arrange online matches.


How To Join
To join, you only need to fill out this simple form.

Most fulfilling gaming experience for me was Dead Space 1 & 2. Always kept my heart pounding, always had my intelligence and quick thinking challenged, always a thrill to play because I expected anything to happen within those games.

No, I think if I were to make a game it would ruin the allure of playing them. I understand it'd be a really rewarding creative process, but I think getting involved with the technical side of things would just kill the magic for me.

I have actually dabbled in game making myself on an extremely noob lvl. I once made a side scroller platformer. Was pretty awful.

I would love to work in the video game industry though, I think it would be such a fun environment to be working in and basically everyone you work with would have AT LEAST one thing in common with you, their love of video games.

Just so happened that in the rules I needed to clarify that there is an option to go somewhere for Online Gaming. ;D

And this is for Video Gaming in general, no shameless plugging involved! :D

Talk about anything gaming! :)

Actually yes.
I graduated from a Games Technology course, so I know how to make games in a sense. I am currently working on a couple of different ideas but nothing like AAA games; more indie.

I'm slightly interested in making games myself, but I think all I'll be qualified to do if I ever get out of university is the programming aspect whereas if I ever made a game, I think I'd have a lot more fun in the design process rather than bringing other peoples' ideas to life.

But I don't have any original ideas of my own anyway so I've never bothered trying to look into game dev. :(

Your most crowning gaming achievement, online or offline.

Beating Nocturne. It's SO EASY to die in it, even on Normal (because thankfully there's no Easy mode so you're not allowed to be a wimp) if you mess up even ONCE. A single missed or ineffective attack can forfeit the turn for your entire team, then you get the crap kicked out of you when your opponents' turn comes. And I'm not getting started on the boss fights, those may as well be mentally scarring at times.

Your most crowning gaming achievement, online or offline.

Offline: Either completing KH2:FM or Tales of the Abyss. Both took about 200 hours and had a lot of teamwork between me and my roommate, so I still look back on it proudly. xD; Also, my LV1 playthrough of KH:BBSFM. Other KH games seem so easy in comparison now.

Online: I don't do a lot of online play but this one time, a bunch of us were playing L4D2 VS on the 360. I don't remember a lot of the details but the teams were horribly mismatched with a lot of experienced friends against this other friend and I. We lost the game, but owned the finale. It was Dead Centre and they got like 3 gas tanks and I think we either finished it or got really close, including one or two instances of me totally kiting Mork as the tank all around the map. XD; It was hilarious.

But I don't have any ideas at all. If I did, I'd do something with them. XD;

I used to have some original stories I'd come up with in high school when I was still aiming to become a comic book artist or something like that, but I can't really remember any of them. But I should go see if I have any of my old notes on them and see if any of it is even basic-RPG worthy. :B

Wow. Well this is difficult. Offline I would probably have to say beating a level of Halo 3's campaign on legendary with all the skulls on. (Like seriously wtf was I thinking?)
Oh maybe completing the Pokedex in Gen 3 as well, was pretty proud of myself there.

Online: Probably something to do with League of legends. Possibly how I'm on/really close to the pro lvl when playing Fizz which makes it unfair for the other team. >.>

@Lightning
If you want I can give you a bunch of ideas so you can get the ball rolling on your own ideas! If you really cant think of any, why not read a book and try and extrapolate it into a video game kind of idea/story line? That could work.

This is true. I guess when it comes to something that would take as long as a game, though, I feel like I'd want the entire thing to be something new and original instead of a spinoff or derivative of someone else's work. But you're probably right. I spend enough time fangirling over other series that making something based off them probably makes way more sense to get started. :P

It was an effort, getting a Feebas, then a Milotic!!! (Way way WAY to many hours spent doing that). But I did feel rather happy with myself when I completed it.


It's not like you need to make it based off what someone else made its more of the process to get you inspiring and excited to get something going.
Plus if youre fangirling you may as well go uber fangirl and make a fangirl game! The process will definitely get you inspired and may get you thinking of your own ideas! :)

May 4th, 2012, 08:50 PM
Thinking up ideas is by far the easiest part of making games for me... my brain just kinda does it on its own, whether I want to or not. lol

I've even gotten inspiration from the shape of some puddles left over after a shower once, and then built an entire game with plot/lore/etc all around it in the few seconds I was looking at it. I guess I just have a really overactive imagination though... once I see something that makes me think about some new game world, I imagine myself as being a character in that world, and start doing things, as if I were playing the game in my head. All of my game ideas (I have dozens at this point. lol) start like that. Always seems to start with thinking about the world, then putting myself in as the main character, and then building a plot for myself so I don't get bored in my little fantasy. lol

(I was originally trying to explain how I think of ideas, but I think I did a terrible job of it. lol)

No, I think if I were to make a game it would ruin the allure of playing them. I understand it'd be a really rewarding creative process, but I think getting involved with the technical side of things would just kill the magic for me.
It's funny that you should mention magic... because my college application essay was all about how I lost the magic of video games when I grew up, and how I found it again in making my own games.

I've never done online gaming (outside of MarioKart 3DS, at which I never win) so I have exactly zero achievements to list there. Offline, I think my biggest achievement was either entirely filling the PokeDex in Pokemon Red (though since I used Missingno I don't think that really counts either) or unlocking all the unlockable content in Smash Bros Brawl and Tekken 6.

For me, it's not actually accomplishing any goal in a game, or showing any great feat of skill. It's actually the day that I rediscovered Tyrian. It was my favoritestestest game EVER as a kid (Like, under 5.), and I had dreams and memories that made it seem like pure magic, but I really didn't remember anything about the game, and had no clue what it was called. I searched for it all the time, and it wasn't until early 2010 that I found it again. Playing through that game again was like the best moment of my life, easily. I still haven't beaten it though... it's really hard later on lol.

Concerning Pokémon-related achievements, mine has to be legitimately completing the entire National Dex up to the fourth generation. I didn't first complete it until Emerald, though, when getting to events was a relatively simple task. It was easier in the 4G games thanks to Pal Park and its wider range of event-receiving options.

I think for me it would be defeating that Emily person in Prototype. took like 3 hours to do but yeah XD

Elizabeth Greene? She was a bigger pain than the Supreme Hunter (second fight, too)! Freakin' instant-kill crimson tide of death! (Does anyone else get the /worst/ implication from that? or is everyone here innocent concerning anatomical innuendo?)

I'm pretty pathetic on anything that's a crowning moment of awesome. I don't think I have anything crowning to boast online. Offline though, I'm pretty proud of beating the frustratingly difficult Mother/Earthbound Zero. I also caught all catchable legendaries from Gen I - Gen IV in the Pokémon games I played, I think that was the greatest achievement I could ever accomplish in my Pokémon games. Plus I'm pretty happy to have beaten Unknown from BBS using the slowest character in the game. Just had to take many beatings, until I finally got it. I think the first one made me feel accomplished the most, though.

@Joshawott how do you get 200%

In order to get a 200% file, one must:

- Collect all the 'KONG' letters
- Collect all the puzzle pieces
- Earn a shiny gold medal in each level
- Beat every level on Mirror Mode

So when you 100% the game you really 200% it o.O How is it possible to get over 100% completion.. I'm totally lost'
Also whats mirror mode? Is everything flipped and inverted?

I've seen some games made with it I think..
The games look pretty much all the same though.. but I think its fairly good starter program if you want to get into some game making, you could even use game maker if you really want to start off easy.

20 minutes is a really good time. Someone has a GB Longplay that's about 33 minutes.

Is that the original one? If it is I watched a video of it where the guy finished it in like 11 minutes, it was insane!!

Yeah, I've used it since October, so like 7-8 months. You can learn to make games within a few days with that program, (very simple ones of course) and within a few months, you could be making games for real. It can only do 2D games though.

The Apples and Oranges link in my sig was made after like a week of using the program.

Actually, no. For one to merely get a 100% file, they must collect all the 'KONG' letters and puzzle pieces. Collecting all of the 'KONG' letters will unlock the Golden Temple. If that is conquered, Mirror Mode will be unlocked accordingly.

To answer your other question, you're pretty spot-on with the exception of a few key details. In Mirror Mode, Diddy Kong is inaccessible and the player only gets one heart as opposed to the regular two. One hit, and the player must start from the last checkpoint. Believe you me, it's much harder than it sounds, as is trying to upgrade a regular gold medal to a shiny gold medal.

I didn't start making real games until I got MMF2(And you could argue that they're not real games, because they aren't being coded with an actual language.), but I've been doing things like rom hacking, mapping for CSS/DODS, Morrowind modding, and other almost-game-things for many years.

Currently I'm making a 2D roguelike/rpg/simcity/thingydoodle. lol
Don't even have a name for it yet, but I'm a decent way into it, and have a lot of the plot/lore/etc. planned out.



As for your other question that I'm too lazy to bother quoting:
Most time in any one game would definitely be Counter Strike Source. I definitely have many thousands of hours (I'd guess over 5000, but no clue really) in that game, and even more if you count the mapping I've done for it.

I never played the resident evil games so i cant say I have any idea why you would put so much time into it! haha. Playing games as a youngster was the best though. there was actually a challenge to finishing a game!

@Lightning my god, the only game Ive putten a decent amount of time on is 250 hours in Pokemon Ruby and
I dunno probaly 100 days in runescape from when I use to play it way back 4 years ago.

@Quil that is also a lot of hours.. :O I assume you were a fan of it yes?
Also have you thought of going into actually programming? Like learning a language that you can program in? I think that seems to be where you should start thinking of heading rather soon. Do you want to work in the video game industry?

derozio
May 9th, 2012, 05:14 AM
Well yeah, you're right, Fabio. Seems like it:


Enter the surreal world of The Unfinished Swan and explore a mysterious, hidden kingdom. Your journey will be led by a runaway swan who guides you through strange levels filled with bizarre creatures. Discover the land through innovative new game mechanics such as splatting paint on a white surface to uncover your surroundings. Each level will bring new twists, challenges, and puzzles until you eventually come face-to-face with the eccentric King that built this realm.

Most fulfilling gaming experience?
Assassin's Creed 2. Yeah, hacking and slashing up demonic buttheads while being in control of a badass, half-human, half-demon hybird is fun, but it can't match the sense of fulfillment that I achieve by being a badass assassin and killing people stealthily while being so darn stylish. Plus, that game had a really engrossing storyline, awesome characters, nice voice cast and really good graphics to boot. The overall experience was just amazing. Even though the game was kinda easy, but yeah.

Your most crowning gaming achievement, online or offline.
Offline: That, to me, has to be this:

http://i862.photobucket.com/albums/ab183/ASC303/DMC3SE2012-05-0918-28-13-92.png

Seriously, even getting till the last mission in 'Very Hard' mode in DMC3SE is no piece of cake. Doesn't bear that name for nothing, y'know. I'm proud of it, regardless of the fact that there are people (quite a lot, actually) who have beaten the game in the hardest difficulty (Dante Must Die: Where enemies take almost 15-20 hits before they go down and bosses are insanely powerful) and I'm still probably a newbie at this game even after playing it for such a long time. :D

Online: Naah, never played an online game.

Are any of you guys interested in making games yourself?
I definitely am. Wanna choose scripting in video games as my career. Not really all that knowledgeable about it since all I know right now is a bit of C++ and nothing else. But yeah, I'm ready to work really hard on it. As for ideas and coming up with original stuff, I do come up with 'em every once in a while. But I don't think I've ever thought of anything as different as the 'unfinished swan'. :O

I've even gotten inspiration from the shape of some puddles left over after a shower once, and then built an entire game with plot/lore/etc all around it in the few seconds I was looking at it. I guess I just have a really overactive imagination though... once I see something that makes me think about some new game world, I imagine myself as being a character in that world, and start doing things, as if I were playing the game in my head. All of my game ideas (I have dozens at this point. lol) start like that. Always seems to start with thinking about the world, then putting myself in as the main character, and then building a plot for myself so I don't get bored in my little fantasy. lol
You, my friend, are quite awesome. <3;

So anyone here heard of or use RPG Maker?
Well, I've been thinking of using it to create an RPG too but...I guess I don't really know how. I'm sure I'll be able to learn it pretty fast but the fact that I don't really have a clear picture as far as the lore and the characters of the RPG are concerned doesn't help. So I've just put "Learning and Creating games using RPG maker and similar programs" on hold for now. :)

What is your longest in game playing time?
I don't really know. I think it has to be Pokemon with a few hundred hours in it. Apart from that, I guess Devil May Cry 3. 50+ hours on that. Mass Effect series and Deus Ex Human Revolution closely follow with almost 40 hours on 'em.

Alinthea
May 9th, 2012, 05:47 AM
I haven't really used RPG maker, because I feel it is a bit cheap from what I want to do.

I have installed Visual Studio '10 and XNA onto my work machine, since I put a graphics card in it today so I can support duel screens and such. The last one fizzled and died so had to put up with one screen for a bit. So, I am going to be working on a couple of things. Won't be games now, more AI simulations I think. Going to try out some different methods and which might be the best for a couple of situations I have in mind.

Edit:

Oh and using C# for the moment, if anyone was that interested! XD

The most time I've ever spent in one game would have to be the PS1 game Harvest Moon: Back to Nature. For those of you who are not familiar with the Harvest Moon franchise, it's basically just a cute farming simulation game where you move to a town and start a farm, and live your life in the little village where your farm is located. So you grow crops and get livestock, all the while wooing a lady of your choice, getting married and having kids.

It sounds boring, but it's like The Sims in that while it sounds boring on paper, even the smallest achievements send you into fits of joy and before you know it the whole day is gone and you've spent nine hours playing repetitive days on a farm, utterly enthralled XD.

I think part of its charm is that it's just so charming and benign and it's light happy fun where you don't shoot anybody or thump seven kinds of crap out of each other :P. Anyway I got into the franchise when it was on SNES and I've bought every incarnation since, but the highlight was definitely the PS1 game. After that it all began to change too much, and I've really begun to dislike the newer games because they're becoming more and more removed from what the games are meant to be as they try to 'change up' the formula.

This was a major tl;dr but basically the moral of the story is I got the game on the first day of a school holiday, and I spent the entire two week vacation from like 7am to 6:30pm just glued to the TV screen. I didn't go out once in two weeks. SO ADDICTIVE. That has to be the most time I've ever spent on one game.

I'll add a couple more games to the discussion. First of all, Overgrowth (http://www.wolfire.com/overgrowth) anyone? A nice indie game based on an old one, Lugaru, where you're running around as a karate-master anthropomorphic rabbit. It's only in its alpha stages right now, but it's very fun.

Then there's a game called Closure (http://closuregame.com) that was released recently (well, it's actually based on a flash game of the same name on Newgrounds), the concept being that only what you see exists. If you shine a light on a nearby wall, you'll be able to get stopped by it; conversely, if there's only light on either side of it, you can jump through the wall and land on the other side. If you venture past the safety of the shine of light without somewhere to land, you fall to your death.

They are literally like a farming simulation game as Andy said. You start off on a Moon or similar place and you have to build up a successful farm to feed yourself and make money etc. Andy did describe it pretty well but I hope my little description helps! You should probably just jump into the first one released for the DS I think that one was the one I played, it was pretty fun xD

I mean, we can run and kill and the fluidity of Connor's movements in the city is really something. As for Max Payne 3, I've read some really good things about this game. Never really got into playing the first two so this'll be my first...if my PC manages to run it, that is. :/

Last, but not the least, DmC! Well, DMC games have always been close to my heard and even though this game is probably the most universally bashed game ever, I still think this will be pretty good. Especially since I feel Ninja Theory are giving it their best. Dante looks much better than he did in the announcement trailer now and combat is fast. All I need now is a good story and I'll be satisfied. Hopefully, it'll come out on PC as well. :#

It's a brand new game and the fourth entry in the ever-so popular series. What I'm so excited about is that the turn-based format is returning, and even more-so that it appears to have quite a twist with the addition of stickers. I'm still curious as to the role partners will play in the game, though.

It's going back to its roots after the abomination (in my opinion) that was Super Paper Mario though some of the scenes were rather amusing.

I want the ICO/Shadow of the Colossus bundle - I've wanted it since they announced it last year (having missed out on the latter). Sadly the PS3 in my house has fallen to the yellow light of death, and the hair dryer trick couldn't revive it.

Most definitely Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Smash Bros 4 (both 3DS and Wii-U). So retardedly excited for both.

I remember playing Tekken Tag 1 and being addicted to it for so long. It was an amazing game for its time because it was the first game to bring Tekken into PS2 graphics. Now finally they're making a second one aaaaaa and it's gonna be so goddamn amazing! Jun Kazama is in it! She hasn't been in a Tekken game since Tekken Tag 1. That will mean nothing to anybody who hasn't followed Tekken, but still!

Every video game I've played is fun, this is a terribly unfair question! I'll fence-sit and answer with two:

1) Super Smash Bros. Melee/Brawl - that is just objectively the most fun game in and of itself. It is fast-paced action but it's not intense like Call of Duty or something. It's just an amazing concept and I could play it for hours without stopping XD

Brawl was just an expansion on Melee, really. The only thing that really differed was that there were more characters, a more epic story mode, more places to fight and everybody's powers got amped up. The controls were different too obviously, switching to the hugely different Wii controllers, but I found the transition simple enough after a little while. NUNCHUCK FTW.

A user on GBAtemp managed to reverse-engineer the Wii to the point that he re-added the GC slots to a newer Wii. Memory card slots and controller ports all work properly, and iirc GC discs also work on it still.

And the Classic Controller plugs into the Wii controller, so you can still use them, although I want to get a GC plug converter so I can use my NES controllers, SNES controllers and N64 controllers on my Virtual Console games.

There shouldn't really be a difference--they're both HD except the HDMI cable carries sound in addition to video through the one cord. Easier to use, I guess. Otherwise, they both carry the same signals. (I believe one can be converted to the other and vice versa.)

Component isn't standard on the older consoles though--I had to buy specific cables to hook up the Wii/PS2 via component over composite. It usually makes them look crisper, though, which is nice. (With some games, though, it makes them look worse, which kinda sucks.)

Well, in a game with moral choices that changes the story, such as heavy rain, devil survivor etc. I usually go with whatever I would do in that situation the first time around. Then I replay to get more endings.

I almost always take the good path in anything. u_u My conscience usually gets mad at me if I pick bad answers when I'm not specifically going for a bad playthrough.

I find that the dialogue is often written so awkwardly for moral choices games because it's too hard to write them with realistic choices. So while I'm a very sarcastic person IRL, I'm also very polite--especially to people I don't know. Thus, the only options that ever "make sense" to me in context are the nice/polite options. All the other ones are always either cruel or rude and I always feel like it just wouldn't make any sense to say them. The only game I've played that even came close to subverting this was Dragon Age II and that's only because I felt comfortable using the joking lines more often than not and they were a better middle ground than most sarcastic dialogue.

As such, I tend to prefer linear games like JRPGs where the characters and their decisions are almost entirely decided for me beforehand so I just have to help the story unfold instead of drive it along. :/ The dialogue always sounds a lot more realistic because it's fully scripted and doesn't have to take previous branches into account. (Not that most games DO take previous dialogue choices into account unless you made a decision in them--it takes me out of the game horribly to be super rude to someone all the way through a conversation and then when I agree to do their quest politely, they act as if I wasn't a total dick to them. Really? Yeah, I accepted your quest but you shouldn't be gushing all over me about how thankful you are because I'm still obviously an *******.)

Super Mario Sunshine MUST have a sequel/remake. IT MUST! It's my favorite mario game by far, if only for the tropical setting. I love the fact that the game takes place in an actual town with real people, rather than on random floating platforms in space with no character at all. Also, glitches are fun.

OMG. Tekkens 1-3 so need a remake. Tekken, despite being a fighting game, has an awesome supernatural soap-opera storyline behind it and the beginning is a very important part of the story the whole way through. So I'd love to be able to watch and play the beginning of the story with graphics and controller functions that don't make me want to punch a baby.

On a random note, I'm playing The SIMS 3 lately, and the husbando of my SIM confuses me. It says he is a 'couch potato' personality, and yet one of his wishes is to join the Medical Career, one of the more pressing careers in the game. lol Conflicting desires and dreams much.

True, true. He can sit and play chess to gain his logic skill. But the worrying thing is that higher ups in that career make you stay on your toes because you have to be 'on call' for emergencies. Hope he doesn't decide to just take a nap through those surgeries or whatever. >_<;; He also had shamefully been fired from his culinary career apparently because when my SIM married him, he had this nasty negative moodlet from being fired recently.

There are too many games I'm looking forward to, actually.

In way more exciting news for Australian gamers, we're finally getting our R18+ rating!!!! (http://www.abc.net.au/pm/content/2012/s3528808.htm) That means games that fall under that rating are actually going to be allowed into the country, as opposed to just banned to protect THE CHILDREN FROM SEEING SUCH HORRORS.

For me, the games are always better than the films. The first Resident Evil film was good, but no way near as good as the first game. Now they could hand me poop on a DVD and it would be better than the newest films.

@Captain Fabio, I don't mind. I'm not a impatient fellow after all, and I don't mind waiting for a response from time to time.

Also, I agree about the films ruining the games and so forth. But when done right, the film does justice to the source martial that it was using.


Q.What is your most hated gaming mechanic? Can be from 'escort X person here' to quick time events
