1. Post about only about video games.

b23832  No.118

In case it wasn't clear, here's a post from the guidelines for mods that works also as guidlines for anons:

- No politics (this won't change).

- Discussing the politics of the game world insofar as it relates to the game world is okay, as long as we only are talking about video games. If it's questionable, it's better not to post.

- Ban for gore and cp. Posting gore from a video game is fine, but if it's particularly gross use a spoiler. Be reasonable.

- Spoiler lewds, no loli. (We may go porn free entirely, but the community as a whole has to discuss that)

I do read every comment put in the suggestion box, so if you have some thoughts on the rules and guidlines I'd love to hear them. This is the forming stages of the the community and what we do now is important for shaping our future.

Remakes General Thread

Let's share our thoughts on the subject in general, and also on games that have been remade or will be, for better or worse.

What in your mind is required for a remake of a game to be worthwhile? How distant can it be from it's source material, does it depend on the specific game being remade?

The Resident Evil remake is an interesting case study, as it was very true to the original in terms of design philosophy, and mostly changed the core game play in terms of adding a few mechanics that added depth and gave new options without totally altering the feel and pacing of the game. Remixing the layout of the mansion but staying true to the basic structure and specific events was a neat way of staying true to form whilst subverting player expectations.

As for pic related, I'm not too married to the original combat system, though I do know that quite a few JRPG fans, to my surprise, play primarily for the combat. While I like the classic FF battle system that utilizes ATB, all I'd want from a remake is that A), it should encourage the player to play as all characters in the party and not just let AI handle all but one member, and B) it needs to maintain that balance of tactical decision making under pressure that the ATB provided the series for, what, 5 games straight, and then kinda implemented in at least 2 others? It doesn't need to be exactly the same combat system, but in my mind, it should invoke the same feelings.

I can't see them flubbing the materia system, and in fact, I wouldn't mind if they added the materia fusion from Crisis Core. One slight change I would like to see is the characters having more dedicated roles, as statistically, they're all very similar.

Story wise, I'm actually feeling fairly lenient with. While there are some areas and events that should remain mostly unchanged Midgar, Nibleheim, Temple/City of the Ancients, Norther Crater, about half of the game had an almost "adventure of the week" feeling to it, Junon City, Mount Condor, basically everything between Midgar and the Temple of the Ancients was mini adventures that flesh out a single character but don't affect the overall story too much. I wouldn't want any of that removed, but changing up the flow of events, adding numerous details, or melding it better to the greater plot would be appreciated. I think it could be neat if that whole section could be tackled in any order.

My biggest concern for the game, and perhaps the only thing that could put me right off, is if Cloud is written in the same manner as he was in the mediocre movie. He's a character with a bit more depth than people give him credit for, false bravado concealing confusion and self doubt, the moments of angst he portrayed in the game are what seemed to primarily characterize him years later in Advent Children, and then coloured people's perception of him.

I'm curious as to how they'll be implementing some of the more absurd scenes in the game, such as Don Corneo'Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Fam, are you referring to the part where you ride the boat to the island? You just ride the boat from the plaza until you get to the platform out in the water, jump off, eat the fruit, wait for the other boat, and ride to the island. Although the level you play after that is almost as bad as the pachinko machine so it's not like you missed much.

That's the one. And you're supposed to do it by using FLUDD to propel a lily pad down the river. But the lily pad dissolves in the water. And the flow pushes the lily pad so at best you're steering it.

where are the regular servers where i can just drop in to the middle of a round, where the map will rotate after its over? i was itching to play it until i got burnt out again. look, everything is some ridiculous mini game, trade server or a map that never rotates.

did they go out of style? its hard to imagine that people would prefer the match finder. or is it literally impossible to host an old school server now? i expected to be turned off by balance changes, not meta stuff like this.

the casual matchfinder is my only option for the classic tf2 experience it seems. its sort of alright, scratches an itch at least, but i dont get to choose a server on the map i want or with a ping i find acceptable, and in game i dont get a number i get 'bars' like im on a freakin phone.

if you dont have anything to say about tf2 then have you ever returned to a game that you havent played in a while? Was it very different in a way you didnt like?

Some of you might have seen this video but I only saw it today.

It's an interesting comparison between the graphics in tf2 2007 vs now. For some reason there was a huge graphics downgrade in that time. I thought I just had nostalgia when I played tf2 and thought that it didn't look as nicely as it used to, I was also confused that the beer bottle didn't break anymore.

It's really too bad. They could have left in the improved graphics for pcs with the power to handle them but they instead threw it all out. This might have happened when tfw went free to play and they wanted to have a more broad appeal to people with less powerful rigs, but still, why punish everyone to include some?

The games I've gone back to have either A) A dead list or B) A bunch of locked servers where you have to join some forum and participate in circlejerks to play for 5 minutes.

People just don't want to have fun with strangers anymore.

It is strange that they completely revamped it. It's not like they're losing money by keeping it in.

Hello gamesx, trying out this board for the first time. I’ve wanted a place to talk about Overwatch for quite a while now but haven’t found the right spot, this board does show a lot of promise so hopefully it will provide.

ITT DISCUSS:

-current meta

-character changes, updates, new heroes and maps

-how to master specific heroes, helping each other become better players

-general bitching about teammates

-anything Overwatch that is not related to politics

Didn't they change the respawn times on some 2CP maps a while ago? I feel like those changes are as much as we'll get

Really not liking the Mercy changes so far. Her ability to constantly revive teammates couples with heroes like Roadhog's almost invincible health pool draws out the length of every fight to feel almost twice as long. Add that to the fact that more matches seem to be running Orisa and the game seems to be one long slugfest. Really tired of Overwatch right now, I miss when dive comp was super meta even at lower levels


51cbb9  No.633

>>625

metagames are just the worst in general. a slugfest like that wouldnt be so bad once in a while right? but if its going to be like that every game it wears thin fast.

in a game like this youd think people would be trying all sorts of things but they either have 0 fucks to give about any kind of team cohesion or theyre rigid metafags or theyre the kind of person who wants to try something different but their team wont try to work with it since they didnt read thats what youre supposed to do.

Last year (?) I upgraded to an SSD.

Somehow I managed to install the bootloader for both my SSD and my old hard drive (it's easily 13 years old) on my old hard drive. Oh and I also installed Manjaro on the same SSD, but somehow can't get GRUB to find my Windows partition, so I have to go Boot>F11>Boot menu>Windows Bootloader>First (SSD) Windows partition to get it going.

I'm afraid of what's going to happen when my old hard drive dies.

You need to install os-prober and mount the windows boot partition. But if you installed Windows and it didn't make the small partition with the bootloader, and it put it on the main one, you might be screwed. I never got that to work.

Alright /gamesx/, how do we take our first steps towards supplanting /v/ as 8chan's main video game board? Do we need to start working on banners and recruitment ads? Are we just going to rely on word of mouth? What's the plan, guys?

That shithole board's gotta go, and there's no better replacement than us. Perhaps we could siphon off the few people left in /svidya/?

where do you mention the board. /v/? as far as i know people are sick of politics being shoved in to everything, and the only reason people dont gripe about it more often is that they get banned and their posts deleted when they get into an argument with someone defending /pol/ as they inevitably take offense.

i just dont know how to go about "shilling" and not draw negative attention too. what are cleaner waters to fish in?

I'm a different anon but I recommend to just keep trying. Tell steam friends and rl friends, if it comes up in discussion online you can be like oh this community has that idea.

The community will keep growing if it wants to. Another way to get us attention is to just post frequently here, that drives up the post per hour count and brings us up on the list for 8ch.

Maybe starting a discord for the board, more community engagement, etc

I feel like as /v/ gets worse they'll ban people more and we'll have the opportunity to get people who want to talk vidya but can't because they said something that offended certain political factions there.
