1: This board is not strictly NSFW but is more laid back about lewd images. Just dont go nuts with porn and keep it videogame related.

2: No dubs (b-but muh board culture!) yeah, no. /v/ tried it in moderation and ya blew it.

3: This board is for all tastes so your trap characters threads and the like are fine, that said this is not an SJW hugbox so everyone is free game for shit talking. Including you.

4: Forum police internet warriors can eat shit and fuck off, dont like a thread then ignore it, you are not the grand judge of videogame culture. None of us are.

5: This is not another attempt to make another failed /v/ replacement. This is another element of videogames to complement /v/ not a vain attempt to replace it. So if theres a thread you want to make purely about a new videogame take it to /v/.

6: No hardcore porn, no not even if the chick is dressed vaguely like a videogame character.


>What is "videogame culture"?

By and large things that trigger the autism of /v/'s vocal minority that want a hivemind. That means Lets Plays, Youtube and Twitch personalities (because not everyone is a pewdiepie level retard performance), cosplay, doujins, bootleg and homebrew communities, fighting tournament news and drama, videogame news unrelated to game announcements, podcasts, anime and manga adaptations of videogames and so on.

>Why make this board?

Because, as fine a board as /v/ is, there is still a douchebag contingent that believe that something that they dont like has no reason to exist and will shitpost a thread into derailment and deletion like volunteer thread police. Imageboards exist to allow us a place to talk and share things without that Neogaf level of hivemind witch hunt group moderation based on opinion rather than board rules. Any attempts to voice this on /v/ would be met with cries of "fuck off ruggarel" which is the hiveminds own version of "mansplaining" -an all purpose term to dismiss and silence any person that voices an opinion you do not agree with- at this point.

This is cringe worthy and you can hear it in Ryans voice.

from my experience it's quite the opposite


I'm glad they got the new Rainbow Six beta so they can milk that as well. They didn't milk the other ones too much so it should be all right.

I couldnt abide that shit no more fam.



I end up still watching this or that on their channel. One of their new podcasts, a couple of them were bitching about adblock. Geoff drunkenly rattled off the most retarded arguments for using adblock he's read, and passed it off as if any argument is on just as bad as one he mentioned.

Pat and Liams MGS5 lets play nears its end and i am eager for Pat to go completely fucking Nuclear.

I think the final Paz cutscene will break him.

The deepest Lore resides far below the crusty surface and way down in the viscous layers of the woolie hole.


I sat through all of this MGSV lets play and Liams shitting, if they dont show Pat losing his mind over the Paz reveal im gonna flip a small table.

Whats the strangest merchandise you ever recieved for a vidya?

From a Capcom competition when RE5 came out i got a hoody and a mug. Not too strange right? But the Hoody was just a horde of angry black people with axes and the phrase "kill or be killed". As a white as fuck guy who lives in a black neighbourhood thats never been worn ever.

And the mug? it was a black mug with the outline of africa on it that said INFECTED, when a warm drink was put in it the mug turned white and africa was INFECTION FREE.

I imagine ben garrison drinks out of one every day.


my copy of simcity 2013 was bundled with a dragon dildo


Anime girl hug pillow.



what game?



the strangest, i suppose, was also the best: i preorderd mass effect, and got this very nice (and tiny) headset for the 360. best headset i ever had. then i broke it in a fit of autistic rage, unfortunately.

Do you go to flea markets/carboot sales to find videogames?

Are you a collector looking for rare bargains, or a creeper looking to flip?

Tell me your stories anons.

For some reason here in bongland Gameboy colour games really shot up in price around the early 2's while NES games are cheap as dirt.



I'm always seeing people in online videos going to thrift stores and finding a bunch of games, but I never find shit. Went to one today and it was almost all sports games and educational kids' games. I wonder if yard sales would be any better.



Absolutely they are, older folks will sell the shit their grandkids dont want anymore and not know its worth.



I've been having somewhat decent luck with yard sales lately where I live. Still pretty hit or miss like most things, and I probably still stand a better chance of finding something worthwhile at the multimedia stores, even if their stuff isn't "$2 complete" cheap, considering most of what I see at yard sales is still the usual generic shit beyond a few cases where the person that owned it previously had decent taste in games.


Honestly, it's not even old folks I see selling games where I live. Mostly looks like people age 20-30 that either have "grown out" of video games or are selling stuff their kids don't want anymore.

Have heard of one person (from a local used game store) that apparently found some yard sales in an older neighborhood that had had a lot of families with kids back when fourth gen was current that came out of there with some cheap SNES games, including a copy of Earthbound in great shape (fuck the scalpers and what they did to prices on that game, and most SNES games in general).



I used to hit up the flea markets down in Yuma and got some great steals like the CDX but now they're all clothes depots where you can find maybe one person selling games with worse prices than the used game stores.

Apparently the hotpockets of /v/ don't think this is allowed so reposting here.

Do youngfags even know this film exists?

Cleaning up my DVD collection i found my old copy of Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within and noticed its almost 15 years old, so 18 year olds browsing, and you cheeky young underage rulebreakers, were at most 3 years old when this released.

Considering the FF brand was almost ruined over the last decade by "the decade of lightning" taking up the entirety of the PS3's lifespan younger gamers dont really regard the series with the same nostalgic fondness that those of us who experienced the 1990's do since back then it was a brand associated with jaw dropping E3 debuts and FMV's that were the standard everything else was held to at the time. So i wouldnt be surprised if younger anons never considered it a good franchise worth paying attention to if they didnt get their hands on earlier titles, let alone remember things like this.

TL:DR - Squaresoft wanted to be the Universal pictures of the 21st century and become a "digital actor" factory where they would use groundbreaking CGI technology to create virtual people that would be voiced by different people as they were rented out to star as actors in different CGI movies.

The first was "Aki Ross" the star of Spirits Within who was given a playboy centerfold and voted one of 2001's sexiest women even though she never actually existed.

When it came to the movie they told a sci-fi story sharing more imagery with Parasite Eve and very loosely FF8 than any mainstream mages and chocobos final fantasy. It told a story where in 2065 the earth is a grave.

One day a meteor fell and soon after people started dying from no cause. Eventually the patterns revealed that invisible monsters were killing people coming from the meteor impact site. Eventually they developed technology to visually see and repel these enemies called 'phantoms' but by the time they designed a city wide sheild few places could be saved.

Disliked it back then. Re-watched it on Halloween and fucking loved it.



I watched it once on TV.

It was okay.


Man, I don't care what anyone says, I think it's the greatest sci-fi film ever made.

You ever wonder why even before F2P Team Fortress 2 had more autistic shit like "diaperbabyfur hardcore rp" servers than anything other than garrys mod?

Whats up with that?


TF2 has always been cartoony in style. Something about that attracts the ultraspergs I guess.



simplistic artsyle is what attracts them. it lacks the subtle facial expressions and body language that only confuse and anger the autistic.

some 2D final fantasies but thats about it.



one level in tomb raider 2



Windforge is a terraria-but-with-steampunk that uses a lot of floating islands.



Never played Terraria, but doesn't sound too bad.

I wish there were more games that took place in snowy areas. Not just a specific level, but the whole game.



Well as long as those ideas eventually leak into more serious games I guess I'm fine with it.

Would you care if Link was a grill?

People always see this as another "THU SJWS WON!" idea should it come to pass, but honestly? it doesnt bother me. For one thing it means i dont need to look for gender bender to fap to Link without giving in to sissy or shota stuff and for another it means cute yuri fanart by the truckload.

Everyone knows the jews fear the Samurai so 'she' wouldnt be a massive bull dyke. If the Zelda U Link had been revealed to be a small breasted tomboy girl would you really have been that upset if it was a one game deal?

I like Mark but i notice he gets really, REALLY upset when Link Lewds are psoted on /v/. Like OP editing super upset "blue armed bandit is not the real sanic" tier.

Is he just a super hardcore Zelda fan?



Good question.

I don't understand why he gets so booty-blasted either.



The Golden Goddesses created the world and inhabitants first, then left the Triforce in Hylia's care. She sent it with Skyloft when she shed her divinity as a sacrifice for the original Link's suffering, allowing his spirit to be reborn when Demise arose once more.

The first reincarnation, SS Zelda, became the first Ancestor to the Royal Bloodline, who would act as vessels for Hylia's spirit whenever danger beset Hyrule. This is why much of the Bloodline has divine magical abilities.

Link will be reborn as a fresh block of clay, to be molded into a hero much like the Master Sword. Zelda will always be reborn as a descendant of the Royal Bloodline, because her wisdom comes from her Divine ancestors.

Demise will only be reborn as a being of raw power, his own cycle created by his dying curse.




I believe I should rephrase after some thought: She WILL be "royalty" aka a member of the Royal Bloodline. Whether Hyrule or whatever future countries recognize this bloodline and accept it as rule is debatable.

Personally, I feel the bloodline will be remembered during these times of danger, recognized and abandoned every few generations.


Ten years ago I would have been cool with an optional female Link like in Pokemon, but as long as there are SJWs who will treat it as a personal victory and never stop gloating about it, I hope no such thing happens.

>Tfw undertales fanbase is to videogames what homestuck is to webcomics, but also more furry.


I'm so sick of this shit on /v/. Its the foot in the door. Just like /co/ had homestuck and that lead to bronies, gravity falls pedophiles and "gemtlemen" this fucking foul tumblrshit will lure the worst to /v/ to complain its not "safe space" enough.



I'm more sick of the hundred threads complaining about the game, myself.

It's just a fad game, and the threads will die down eventually. And if they don't, they'll probably move to their own board or the threads will get eventually banned or something.



They said the same about Homestuck. Exactly the same.

Webm related.

>When did you jump off ship?

I stopped watching them after the Ambition videos because after that, their videos got shittier, but I'd been getting pretty tired of them since the Mighty No. 9 bullshit.

>Favourite pairing?

Slowbeef, Diabeetus, and Proteus.

>Favourite era?

Around when they started doing the Darkseed stuff. The Navigatr/Gaming in the Clinton Years videos were also great.
