What are you playing?

Talk about the life consuming, celibacy inducing hobby that is all the rage these days.

AitD is like Hydlide where they inspired good games but that's where the good part ends.
IFIAK Alisa is the only good spiritual successor of the original, play that shit if you want the superior AD experience.

I always roll my head when games incorporate HUD elements in-game. Especially when it doesn't make sense.
So this guy has like a health bar at the back of his neck? Who's gonna read that for him?
Are you saying you don't become huge or die then fall into the abyss, after eating a random street mushroom.

It's one of the best design aspects of Dead Space.
Just about nothing about Dead Space is in any way realistic. The fairly slick integration of HUD elements, leading to an unobstructed screen for atmospheric reasons, isn't an issue at all.

Next your defending those gay-ass minimalist UIs where everything is just white or a shade of grey, and the health bar is a literal rectangle.

No, but when shit works it works.
The ammunition display is plausible, so is the holographic inventory. Yeah, the health really isn't but then again no health display ever is.

My favorite kinds of health/status readouts in games are usually from mecha, air combat or racing games. Something where it makes sense for there to be a lot of gauges, meters and screens monitoring the status of your vehicle. Cockpit view in games can never fully capture what it's like to drive a car, let alone pilot more fanciful machinery. But it's still cool and functional.

MechWarrior is the gold standard in damage displays.

I thought that honor went to games where waifus took clothing damage.
I’m getting too old for this shitposting.

The real hentai filth is when Arthur goes up and down a latter, he flashes the camera his ass at the top/bottom. That's where the twerk animation comes from that was used in Ghosts 'n' Demons, I think.

Last time I checked Last Armageddon didn't borrow monsters, their designs and/or entire assets from a completely different franchise it has absolutely no relationship with.
Original SMT1 has an unused music data file which is a remix of LA title theme, and that means those games are blood related.

Ok.
Btw, i don't give a fuck about Touhou shit, i just like this game and the Metroidvania with the maid that stops time.

I've started SMT5
Of course you were going to pick one of the worst of the bunch.
The only thing that may redeem SMT 5 is a law ending in which the protagonist becomes the new YHVH - i've no idea about the endings in this game, i quit it when it became Persona meets Super Sentai.

In other news, here's a sequel to Ender Lilies:



But i'm not going to touch it until it's out of early access.
