Games you decided to play while the servers are wonky

Since the WoWs servers are acting erratically and dont allow for proper fun gameplay right now, I was wondering who is substituting with other games and with which ones.

 

Myself, I started playing Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic yesterday. Haven't played it in about half a decade and... by the force, this game is still absolutely awesome. At over 15 years old, from the tech side it's obviously hopelessly outdated, but atmosphere, story and characters are bloody fantastic.

I think WoWs will have to play second fiddle for the next weak or so while I play through the gem that is KotoR once more. And then there is KotoR II... Good times ahead, no matter what the WG servers are doing.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate and Lego DC Super Villains.

Because no-one said I was limited to PC games.

I actually played Smash online for the first time this weekend, it was quite a lot of fun, so long as you play Time Battle with items on. Although, I won far more Stock battles than I should have (their fault for not prioritising the Dedede/K. Rool with two stock left :cap_haloween:).

It is in off-topic though?

Also, I didn't even know Kerbal Space Program (heard the name once or twice, that's it), so I had to google it. Looks like it could be fun though.

Smash Brothers definitely an alternative for always and everything. Got my old GameCube here which me and my flatmates use to beat each other up occasionally ;)

Indeed. Unfortunately, back in the day I sold my N64 when I got the GC. Big mistake, since F-Zero X is one of the coolest games ever and GX is just not quite the same (I mostly blame the music).

Interesting. I actually have played none of the games mentioned in the last 4 posts, although I have fond memories of playing ArmA II with the A.C.E. mod back in the day with my friends (and Operation Flashpoint before that). Most people don't have the patience for that kind of game, but if you get really into it, it's freaking amazing.

Two years ago Persona 5, Nier Automata, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Horizon Zero Dawn were released...

You really do have a very limited experience of quality games if WoWS is your #1 Favourite.

All four of the above I would rank as being much, much better than WoWS.

I still enjoy WoWS, as it is quite fun to blow off steam on the odd occasion - and to make sure Asashio players stay where they belong: the bottom of the ocean.:Smile_trollface:

 

Also, this thread was about what games you played when the servers were down over the weekend, not about your favourite games...:Smile_smile:

If you want to try any of them Touhou 10 might be a struggle as it is a Bullet-Hell Shooter, a genre famous for requiring good twitch timing.

Also, Touhou 10: Mountain of Faith is a bit of a black sheep in the franchise due to having a non-standard bomb system and the Final Boss's final bullet pattern actually being harder on Easy difficulty than on Normal; you'd be better off playing 7: Perfect Cherry Blossom or 11: Subterranean Animism, due to their easier Easy difficulty.

Nier Automata

If only that game had a decent PC port.

 

I bought the game, tried to play it but the PC version is a complete mess. Utterly fudged controls, game won't even run 1080p without modding it and another myriad of technical inconveniences just detracted from the playing experience (what I actually played thorugh was mostly amazing and I've fallen in love with the games soundtrack, but trying to get the game and controls to work is just urgh) ... I have subdued hopes (as in nearly nonexistent, but acknowledging the possibility of it) that the recently announced GOTY YoRHa edition PC version might just come with sorely needed improvements to the PC port.

 

As for on-topic, I went back for another XCom:EW run. MECs are so hilariously OP!

I'm sooooo hoping for a PC port of Bayonetta 2. The port for the first was very well done indeed. Probably not gonna happen though :Smile_sad:

And I definitely won't be buying a console just for one or two games.

Thanks for the suggestion, but that is simply not my genre.

 

By the way, KotoR was not the only thing I played during server downtime, just the one I played instead of WoWs. I also got the odd hour of Age of Empires II or Diablo II in, like I've been doing for over 17 years :Smile_smile:

PC port might be a problem, as I'm fairly certain Ninty themselves had a hand in Bayonetta 2 even existing.

There's also an entire level in the game which is full-blown shout out to Star Fox, which (as a Smash player) you know is a Nintendo-owned property - so that would either have to be removed or swapped to an Afterburner shout out (a property owned by SEGA, who also own Bayonetta).

 

Switch recommendations:

  • LOZ Breath of the Wild.
  • Splatoon 2
  • Super Smash Bros Ultimate
  • Octopath Traveller
  • Super Mario Party (fun for 3-4 players, kinda boring with only 1 or 2)
  • Puyo Puyo Tetris (colourful fun puzzle games, online is dead though)

These are just games I've played. Others would probably suggest:

  • Dark Souls Remastered (Giant Dad-ing on the go)
  • Super Mario Odyssey
  • Kirby: Star Allies
  • Mario Tennis Aces
  • [Name a given WiiU port here] - they're all good, just first appeared on a crap console

These are all I can think of right now, they are most certainly not exhaustive lists.
