ZeroRanger is so good. hell i guess i love it. lots and lots of reference to older shmups, anime, ghibli. i found like dodonpachi, ketsui, batrider, evangelion, hxh. shmup undertale is pretty spot on

Zero Ranger looks cool, is the whole game basically a mix of sections from other shooters? I recognized way too many parts of the trailer

this is extremely impressive. whether some of this looks like bad fanart or early access shovelware is beside the point when you realize how quickly these laymen were able to get mechanics, animation and level design recognizably up and running. it's a fraction of the time spent in traditional development and with more time and polish people are probably gonna make great things with dreams. at least i hope so

being able to build and animate a character from the ground up inside in the level you're currently designing is enough of a game changer, i think. it's something i've dreamed about since i was 16 years old

I still don't fully trust a Media Molecule game to have enjoyable 2D physics, or at least for people to have a great grasp on how to make good controlling 2D games from this right away, hopefully people come up with good weight/gravity settings and share them online asap.
But slow exploration games with simple movement are going to be amazing if this thing takes off properly which I'm praying it does

the great thing about dreams is that movement will be completely customizable. they're giving you scriptable state machines to refine running/jumping/whatever to any degree you'd like

pretty much and without getting too spoilery, i'd say it starts as homage--like a ship design from ketsui, a level from axelayToggle Spoiler--and turns into full blown recreations for plot reasons

can anyone recommend me PS4 headphones under $150? I've had two pairs of turtle beach and I'm kind of done with them as a company after both have broke. I want something that has an analog button I can mute my mic.

kiwami is fun, but the boss fights are so much worse than 0. Majima in the batting cage isn't any fun. breaks the game basically when he's in heat mode.
googling majima batting cage makes it seem like others agree. the QTE moments abruptly coming up while you're button mashing isn't fun either.

EDIT: finally beat it, but had to decrease difficulty to normal :(

GameInformer looks at the companions of The Outer Worlds.

You encounter them early
Opportunities to recruit companions are front-loaded, to avoid the sense of under-developed characters joining late in the journey. “You encounter all the companions in the first third of the game, because it’s no fun getting a companion in the last hour,” co-director Tim Cain told us at the game’s unveiling.

They help in battle and beyond
You can bring two companions along with you when you leave your ship. In addition to their unique special attacks, you can also give them weapons to steer their approach to combat. You also benefit from a portion of each companion's key skill scores; if a lock is too difficult for you to pick alone, bringing the right companion might give you the boost you need. If you need an even bigger boost, you can take certain perks to increase how much you benefit from your allies' aptitudes. "We realized that companions could be used a lot more tactically," Cain says. "We wanted to put in skills that control that."

You can do quests for them
Every companion has something you can help them with. While these tasks varying in length (don’t expect them all to be multi-stage, multi-hour affairs), they give players a chance to get to know the companions better – and get rewards to improve their performance or customize their quarters. “Some problem that is essential to their character that is explored in that particular quest,” Poddar says. “And that’s also something we like to ask ourselves when we start fleshing out these companions: What is their motivation? What is driving them?”

idk why but what seems like an outdated system (preset npcs with backstory/lore) extremely tickles my fancy

Am I crazy for thinking Fall Out 5 looks kinda fun? I haven't really played a Fall Out before so if it's just more of the same that's not really an issue for me

Are you talking about Fallout 76? Would love a Fallout 5 but FO76 is not that, and if you’re new to the series FO76 is absolutely not the place to start imo.

New Vegas and FO3 were my personal faves. FO4 was fun enough. Haven’t played the first two, but FO76 is a mess. No NPCs or meaningful story, with ample glitching and really bad attacking system.

FO76 will be free to play soon enough so I’d just recommend waiting a bit for that.

New Vegas is one of the best games ever tho.

Oh haha. I thought Far Cry 5 was fun, even if the main bad guy is annoying. My favorite in the series was Far Cry 3. Cool island setting and fun insane bad guy. You can probably get it cheap. Looks like $20 on Steam. Probably a decent place to start, since Far Cry 5 is still full price but probably due for a decrease at some point.
