0. Follow the Global Rules, use the global report function for reporting illegal content/global rule violations

1. Obvious shit: High-quality posts and OC are welcome, check the catalog to make sure you don't make redundant threads, derailing and impersonating a board volunteer/mod/janitor/owner is a bannable offense, heavier shitposting is counted as derailing and therefore bannable

2. If you have a question or comment about the board, 8chan, or just want to engage in some offtopic shitposting, head over to the meta thread, otherwise stay on topic, that being tabletop and vidya (including VNs), be it their crunch/gameplay or fluff/lore

3. Saging is for a quick off-topic post, hopefully to stop further derailing, or posting in a shit threads you don't want to bump (remember if you personally dislike the thread, the hide function exists for a reason), and is mandatory for CYOA/Quest thread posts not from OP

4. You may post spoilered porn but no porndumps, and while you don't have to be 100% vanilla, particularly with writefaggotry (see rule #5), don't post /d/egenerate fetishes like scat, guro, vore, NTR, etc.

5. If something in a story you're doing involves one of those fetishes and makes sense in context (i.e. kingdom in turmoil because queen had an affair with a knight) that's fine, but when you stuff that shit in because you expect people to find it sexy, you'll have anons rip you apart and a ban

6. Anthropomorphic races and characters from vidya and tabletop are of course allowed, but posting furry fap material will get you banned

7. No cuckchan /v/ tier threads (You know them, now that the dust has settled, can x ever compete, etc.)

8. No Kosherwatch, Tumblrtale, Minecraft, and other games with really cancerous communities are banned, as is other media that's a cancer magnet like My Little Pony, and any announcements/trailers/news should be archived/webm'd, particularly if they come from cancerous sources

9. Leave the blogposting (looking at you /r9k/), ERP, shilling, avatarfagging, name/tripfagging when your identity isn't necessary for your posts, e-celeb discussion (while you may discuss their content if it relates to the board's topic, no discussing anything about tPost too long.

Aside from motion blur, what settings do you instantly disable in most games?

SSAO is usually rubbish. Good ambient occlusion isn't even accurate unless the scene is a cloudy day, and many versions add disgusting black halos to everything. Better versions waste extra frames to make an inaccurate effect more subtle and look closer to SSAO disabled, so why bother?

It's a pity that most of the people trying to experiment with what can or cannot constitute a game are con artists trying to debase gaming into a way to make a quick buck via turd polishing. I'd like to see a genuine study of it.

Still, offhand, it seems to me that Yume Nikki is something that's explored, rather than played. From that angle, it's not a game, it's something else. I'd call it a "virtual reality" if the term wasn't already taken.

How is Square suddenly having issues with being understaffed months after the game's announcement? They're either trying to create a genuinely grand remake and don't have the manpower for it or are somehow understaffed even for making a half-assed cash crab. I'm betting on the latter, but how did they get to this sad state anyhow?

KH3 and the FF7 remake are both being built off the engine they botched together for FF15, and all current rumors are saying that Squeenix is failing, yet again, to get their shit together in a timely manner, and soon KH3 will be released in a half-assed state, like FF15, and all their future games won't be much better. Sounds like they are on the verge of losing a lot of Brouzouf and IO Interactive just ditched them, so they are losing IPs to milk too.

Why do I get a feeling that they're in a situation similar back to their early PS1 days where they're shuffling all of these games at once? Sounds like they mismanaged themselves into a corner and now they can't get out. I wouldn't be surprised if they actually were trying to make these games several times throughout different engines just trying to see what will work the best while developing the other games.

Squenix had a good run, made some great games in their time, but all good things must come to pass. It would be better for everyone if they just closed shop now, instead of dragging on this painful existence any longer.

They should sell off their IPs (while they still have any value) to various smaller companies and see what they can do with'em.

Lately it feels as if there's been more of a push for narrative/story focused games. Take the new God of War for example. A series that's been known for it's action and brutality. A hack and slash gorefest that set in stone as a Playstation staple. Now with the newest game they're reportedly going for a harder focus on the story of Kratos and his son over just the action. The problem lies in just how different can you make a game before it's unrecognizable from it's previous incarnations.

What I wanna ask is several things. Do you like the new shift in focus on story first in this series? Do you prefer story over gameplay? What are examples of games that've mixed story and action well? What are examples of games that've done it poorly?

Metroid prime did it right. If games want to include story make it optional and unobtrusive. There's a lot of lore to read but you're not forced to deal with VN style play for half the game to experience it.

But if push comes to shove: leave the stories aside. a good video game doesn't need a story. Look at something like contra, you're saving the world with nothing more than pants and a gun with infinite ammunition. Hard as hell, but still a good game. Now try to make a video game with a good story and skimp on the active play. At best you end up with a VN. Worse, you could end up with something like monster girl quest where one set of first order strategies dominate so hard there's no reason to do anything but spam a particular combo after you suffer the wrath of RNGesus for long enough. Not to mention the story that is basically one giant asspull that needs to go into the incinerator because it's trying to be something it's not.

The thing about GoW is that the story was already finished from what I've heard, I don't know much of the lore itself. It was a story of revenge and it ended with him getting what he wanted.

>the story of Kratos and his son

This game is just bullshit to milk the brand name and this is proof of it.

It's going from badass god killer to caretaker "because that worked well with TLoU, right?", even the gameplay went from hack and slash and FUN to the over the shoulder close range melee TLoU-like fighting.

They could've made an alternate universe or something in between games as a spin off, but no. Let's expand the story, and by expand I mean let's throw popular shit in because "we want to appeal to a wider audience while still appeasing our old one".

>Do you prefer story over gameplay?

A game needs good gameplay, or else it's not a proper game. I rather liked Everything and it was really comfy, but it's not really a game and there's no difference from playing a real game with the talks playing in the background.

Also, like >>1735 said, you can make a good game with a good story.


Tbh I rather liked MGS.

The gameplay was really good and innovative for it's time and the story was pretty good. MGS2 was also pretty good, though it took the control out of the player a bit much with cutscenes.

MGS3 was the shit IMO. The boss fights, other than the boss, were a bit badly balanced, either being piss easy or really hard, depending on the stance you took, but the rest of the game was pretty solid. The cutscenes were a bit long, but they actually got you invested in the game and went really well along with it. Plus you could watch them later, which is something most games don't have for no reason other than lazy devs.

MGS4 was when it all went to shit. 2 hour long cutscenes after everything and the gameplay is not the best, though the boss I only beat one uPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>but because of the control it gave you during them.

There's also Eva, forgot about her. The game really played the sex appeal right and Snake's fall for her charm as a player character.

I don't mind poligon titties shoved into my face, but the game really played it right with the third person camera. It showed the general scene and you could opt to go into first person view for the titties and ass, but it never forced you to.

Nothing at the moment. I'm working on a homebrew though!

>What're you playing?

Also nothing, work has me separated from my gaming group.

Traveller, Savage Worlds, 13th Age, Fantasy Craft, Microscope, Ashen Stars, Mobile Frame Zero, Burning Wheel, Rise and Fall, Heroes of the Hearth, Before the Storm, Degenesis, Rogue Trader (Or any of those 40k RPGs)

>Any neat character ideas you've been wanting to try?

Yeah, a few, but nothing particularly fancy; Awakened slime, an awakened cobra that sets up an alpha legion/word bearer type cult, a worm that walks, a primitive rogue/sorcerer that likes to gamble (and cheat), a multi-armed (devilish? undead? alien?) surgeon who helps people in exactly the same way as a monkey's paw.

>Share greentexts, homebrew ideas, etc.

My homebrew idea is a bit much for one post so I'll give it a brief overview. If any of you have played D20 starwars it uses that as a baseline for how it works. Initiative is scrapped, so are jedi and anything overtly technology related (like starships and computers) as the setting has a fantasy skin on it, skills are chosen separately from the class sorta like D20 Modern/CoC and they're condensed into a shorter list so that there's more room for knowledge skills, languages, music, or any skill unique to a character like scrying or autohypnosis or whatever. Magic is kept subtle as possible along the lines of The Force/Lord of the Rings/Conan type stuff and takes a lot of inspiration from the occult. With this lack of enchantments or blasters, a greater emphasis is placed on quality crafted items and alchemy. Diplomacy has been turned into a full party activity (like Red Markets if you've had a chance to try that out at Gencon I highly recommend it) so that nobody gets bored or distracted while two people have a dialogue. What I'm tossing around as an idea now is Traveller style character generation as an option for players who are indecisive about what sort of character they want.

First 3 links deal with .PKG links from PSN's very own servers. If it's on PSN, then there is a .PKG download link for it. DLC as well. .PKGs need .RAP license files which PSNDL and PSNstuff also provide.
