@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho

#5 pick is used to draft LittleBigPlanet (PS3).

user posted image

Fine, it's a Puzzle Platformer, but Portal's here.

But really to start...what is the coolest part of the new generation? Personally, I've always thought one of the best aspects has been the ability to share and connect fans with custom content. The Elder Scrolls franchise specifically caters to this with intuitive modding software. In an era where we're going more and more into custom content, LittleBigPlanet emphasizes this greatly. Under the tagline "Play, Create, Share", you get both a story puzzle platformer which, in my opinion, exceeds that of Portal and the ability to create custom levels and play with friends.

Setting is just as awesome. Stitch Punk. Oh, and Steven Fry narrates the introduction.

lol I think if you try one (even if it's a Megaman X game) you'll get enough of an idea what they're like; platforming with shooting and weird special abilities and having to fight bosses over and over... and it's difficult lol

solid pick, haven't gotten to play it but it seems like a pretty fun game.

sharing content etc. seems kinda cool but it doesn't seem too widespread yet, and personally speaking I usually don't make use of it since it's pretty dang time-consuming etc., I guess I just don't have the luxury to screw around with extras, it's hard enough trying to keep up with all the games coming out just with minimalists playthroughs lol

I only ever played it on the PSP, which had less in it, but it was still good. I can imagine the PS3 one being that much more fun with creation and customising.

Rayman Legends - Wii U

Great gameplay, music, difficulty, well-executed, great use of the Wii U gamepad, fun co-op, and generally a great game to play.

Other games I could have put up (excluding my "no two games from the same general series/franchise/whatever e.g. no 2 Mario games"):

New Super Mario Bros. 2
New Super Luigi U
Donkey Kong Country
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3
New Yoshi's Island
Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic Generations (2D Part)
Mega Man X-X3
Kirby's Return to Dreamland
Kirby Super Star Ultra
Kid Icarus

There are lots more good platformers (and games like Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Ys: Oath in Felghana had great platforming elements as well even if that's not their main genre) but I'll leave it at that haha

Yeah, I was thinking about the Kirby games too.

Some other platformers on my board were:
Mario Galaxy/2/Sunshine - Eh, 'nuff said
Tearaway - Great little game, really nicely designed (all that papercraft), enjoyable music, customising was fun.
Super Meat Boy - Man, this game is fun. Lots of good levels, solid to play, the style's great. Nice feature when watching all of your deaths. Also, **** unlocking the kid. That took me ages.
Mirror's Edge - Gave it some thought here.



Anyways, I've got the next #1, so here we gooooo.

I'm picking...

The Last of Us

Maybe I'm suffering from the crime of recency here, but it's a fantastic game. Joel and Ellie are great characters who grow well, the setting was done nicely, you got a good feel for the state of the world, the interactions between people were great, etc. The combat was well done, the areas were lovely and really added to the feel of the game.

I could probably go on more, but I'll leave at that for now.

Thanks to bb for confirming this.

Dark Souls 2
GREAT GAME. I got it a while ago, I still haven't beaten it, but so far it has been great. I find the graphics to be good and even great in some places, some people I've met don't though, the music is incredible, and if you've played Dark Souls 1 then there are alot of references for you.
