F76 looks like it could be fun, if it was a single player game. Cut that cancer out, add in NPCs and quests, and you got a beautiful word and some great visuals. You can easily make this a mod for F4, a la TTW, but as it stands, everything that is core to the gameplay itself is fucking cancer, and makes this shit unplayable for me even without nonsense like pic related

Anyways, anyone actually playing the game? What do you think of it so far?

NIHON FALCOM THREAD: I'll Remember You Edition

EVEN WITH THE RECENT TROUBLE, SUPPORT FALCOM GAMES AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. ENCOURAGE THE GOOD THINGS DONE OVER HERE WITH THE LOCALIZATIONS AND PERHAPS THEY WILL CONTINUE, AND IF NOT THEN VOTE WITH YOUR WALLET

>Latest News

-On the same day, October 26th, both Tom Lipschultz and Brittany "Hatsuu" Avery left XSeed. Apparently, their departures being simultaneous was a coincidence, at least according to both of them. Though details are slim, it looks as though Tom left by his own choice and Brittany was let go. Regardless this is a massive and possibly fatal change to XSeed. Tom was not only instrumental in securing ports for smaller obscurer Falcom titles like Zwei and Xanadu Next, he was also one of the staunchest defenders of anti-censorship practices in the localization business. His loss could easily mean XSeed is highly vulnerable to pozz. Every release must be carefully watched from now on. As for Hatsuu, she was a huge fan of Falcom games, particularly the Ys and Trails franchises, and was one of their biggest cheerleaders at the company. A Falcom game localized without her is sure to feel at least slightly different. The two most prominent faces of the company to the public are gone and the future of XSeed and Falcom games in the west is highly uncertain for now. All we can do is wait and watch vigilantly for what comes next.

- Falcom has announced they're working on a new Ys game set after Ys VIII. Right now there is no title, no word of whether the Tokyo Xanadu sequel Kondo talked about making is happening first and no other info other than it's being worked on.

- As of this posting Trails of Cold Steel 4 has been out for a month, so obviously the whole game is spoiled. Try to keep things behind spoilertext here.

- The PC port of Ys: Memories of Celceta released on July 25th, 2018.

- The Switch port of Ys VIII released with a litany of bugs, including not even having dual audio (NISA's sole claim to fame) at launch.

- After an email campaign, a retranslation, apologies, and 7 months of delays, Ys 8 finally got released on PC. And NISA fucked up, the port is so terrible that only 51% of the Steam reviews being positive (it was originally at 25%, but shills will shill). Western and Japanese websites are reporting this story. In other words, a huge backlash. Meanwhile, NISA promised to fix everything. Don't worry, they'll probably be able to fix in a few weeks what they couldn't fix in 1.5 years. Absolutely. Ha.

- Trails of Cold Steel I & II is now on PC through Steam and GOG with gameplay enhancements and newly voiced lines of dialogue.

- Ys Seven ported to PC by XSEED, available now on Steam/GOG/Humble Store

- Zwei!! and Zwei II are finally released on PC by XSEED, available now on Steam/GOG/Humble Store

- Tokyo Xanadu released on PS4/PC with an improved translation, but there are a few issues like slangs, memes and random chtulhu lines.

- Also available on PC: the Trails in the Sky trilogy (now with Turbo mode), Xanadu Next, Ys: I & II Chronicles, Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim, Ys: The Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin.

>Fan-translations

>Trails from Zero at 70% (being edited by Geofront/Zerk). There is already a beta (as in a rough translation done before Zerk even started working on it) out, though the quality is on the low side, though still coherent from start to finish

>Trails to Azure was leaked. There are a few typos and every once in a while there's an awkward line or two but all in all it's a solid translation. https://www.romhacking.net/translations/3679/. Flame's edit of the translation is also out officially now. It's a better worded script at the cost of pretty much breaking the voice mod. Both are available packaged with torrents if you care to look for them.

>Everything else in the works seems to be MIA.

Tag Force 1-6 are the best if you want a story (2006-2011, 6 has only the first 25 XYZ monsters).

Tag Force Special (2015) is the best to play for learning the game with many of the new cards.

The World Championship series (2004-2011) and Duel Academy (2006) are pretty good too. Definitely check out Dungeon Dice Monsters.

All are fun for pet/archetype non-meta decking. Legacy of the Duelist is shit.

Draw Thread - FUSION EDITION

/v/ Draw Thread

______________

LET'S TRY SOMETHING NEW

______________

I was recently reminded of this meme and I felt like it could really help in having some unique drawthreads. Basically, the objective of the "game" is as follows:

-Post a picture of any character or any object or concept whatsoever

-Consecutive Dubs decide characters A, B and C

-Trips decide what that given character (or which combination) does what or what kind of pose it makes

-Finally, drawfag who delivers gets to pick character A, B or C for the next cycle, and so on and so forth.

SO GET READY

Tips for a healthier Drawthread

>Spot out any autistic shitter and repeat offenders You know who they are unless you're new, in which case lurk moar

>Anyone can participate, even if you're dog shit. The livelier it is, the better, but don't go begging for (you)s or pity. This is not deviantArt.

>If you do draw, draw to the best of your ability! If you're not giving it your all people will notice.

>Any drawfags with works in progress, please post any updates so that the requester and everyone else knows that people are still working hard!

>If for any reason a request is scrapped, upload what you have and say it's at its most complete state. Maybe ask if someone wants to take over and finish it for you.

>Comment. Every artist loves a compliment, it validates their hard work. Don't be afraid of dishing out them (you)s as long as you feel they deserve them.

LASTLY, PLEASE READ THIS

These threads are not meant to be spammed every day like a fucking general.

This isn't an art board. Give the Drawfags their time to do their thing and leave the thread-making to them.

Anyone attempting to make this thread in a newfag/cuckchan/low effort manner will be met with disdain and mockery.

Hitman 2 demo

I found out today that if you download the Hitman 2 demo you can play all the legacy maps of the first Hitman, thats if you own the copy of Hitman 1. You just have update the first one and then download the Legacy maps bundle from the in game menu store. Saves money having to buy the second one just to enjoy all the new improvements in the older maps. Maybe they have finally fixed sniper rifles, I'll have to check it out once the download finishes.

Guide to a happy Share Thread

Leechers

1. Before requesting,search online and even use distributed search engines e.g.InfraSearch,Opencola,YaCy,FAROO. See below for famous links.

2. Look first in the archives and volafile.

3. Be as specific as possible.If you have the cover art of the file you want,post it in both the share thread and in vola room.

4. Due to asshats in the thread,links to files will be purposely misleading (have spaces,lines,keys&passwords split in the post),including torrent hashes.

If you see a string of characters (e.g. c12fe1c06bba254a9dc9f519b335aa7c1367a88a) with or without dashes, it is a magnet link.

If your bittorrent is shit,prepend magnet:?xt=urn:btih: to the string.

a. Find and Replace (sed/tr/awk) is your friend.

Uploaders

1. When in doubt;upload,ask questions later.

2. Upload to many alternative sources (5+) and keep a local copy if space permits.

3. Use a URL shorterner (spaced or split) and/or paste relinks (e.g zerobin.net) on file links to confuse bots.

4. Encrypt your uploads now with a password,key, or generator.Rename the files something random, even their checksums.Maybe even pad files to the nearest GB or so,to confuse bots.

5. If your connection is stable,it is extremely advisable to self host. Using anonymity tools like Freenet,I2P,Gnunet,distributed NNTP or MixMinion/Mixmaster.

Volafile volafile.org/r/f8vk0tec

1. Before uploading a batch of miscellaneous files,e.g images and music be sure they are unique enough to stand on their own and that you ask for the majority's the consensus whether to upload the files individually.

2. Vola room owner edit- Upload 5 files and then zip the rest if the dump is larger then 6-7 files. Music Albums exceeding 5 files are to be zipped.When uploading .torrent, either add them to the a zip of the game or just don’t upload those misc files.Properly label files so that they can be identified without asking someone else.For lewd stuff with filenames like RJ74765 either add a .txt linking to the contents on a website or just add the title to the .txt e.g "BIG BOOTY WOMEN SIT ON SHOTA FACE (RJ34734)".

3. You can filter files by file type (.txt, .rar, etc) or search the file list with the bar hidden by the filter files button.

a. When in doubt,archive as a single [or split if too large],then upload.

starsector

0.9 is finally out, for anyone keeping up. Last update was june '17, so this is pretty exciting. Lots of new features, and on the cusp of full release in a year or so.

So far we now have:

Establish colonies! Build up industrial production to make a profit, improve your colonies, and protect them from many dangers

Visit a portside bar to find missions and other opportunities

Fight alongside – or against – massive orbital stations

Create your own faction and set up its military doctrine

Find blueprints and use them to let your colonies produce ships, weapons, and fighters

Face enemy ships with dynamically generated weapon loadouts

Discover new dangers and derelicts on the fringes of the Sector

Explore planetary ruins

Raid core worlds for plunder or to disrupt your competition

This is from the dev page. For anyone not in the know, starsector is a top-down 4x space-sim/RTS/action/RPG game. It's good stuff, the dev is a cool dude and its a fun game.

General starsector thread as well, I didn't see one in the catalog, apologies if there is one already.

We have seen Sony slow down divisions before. Each time it was before they sold off each division. The writing is on the wall as Sony as a whole is not in a good place. The Playstation brand is most likely going to change hands.

If it is going to be sold who would you want to take over the reigns and why?

Are games even a good media to tell stories?

As someone that started to read books and literature, I've noticed the best stories in games are nothing more than dumbed down sci fi or fantasy TV shows, Walking dead and The last of US are literally at the level of walking dead TV series.

Following this logic, It comes to mind that games can do interactive stories pretty well, but most of the potential of storytelling is kind of linear and static, sure, games can do random generation of stories, like Dwarve fortress come to mind, but I feel that's the best game should be trying to do, rather than trying to be cheap TV shows.

I do feel that every medium has diferent strenghts.

>movies

can tell dramatic stories in a fixed manner.

>anime

can tell fantasy and super natural stories better than film.

>TV

can tell pretty long stories, in a very detailed manner, and develop the characters.

>Books

can pretty much tell a story in any sense, integrate non visuals and explore the inner side of feelings and mental health of characters, and do things that are basically imposible or too expensive for the other medium.

>comics

can do as much as literature but is limited to visuals, like film.

Recommend me good Games that let you side with the "Antagonist"

Since people call you a "Nazi" these days over the most banal shit, that made me realize more and more that most "Villains" Did literally nothing wrong, and that made me want to revisit some old games that had alternative choices, like fallout, and want to side with them

With that said, I'm looking for any good games with alternative endings, where you can also side with the villains. It can be a second half of the game, or just a few end game decisions, I'm all for it, games where you select your campaign or side at start don't count

Old School RuneScape mobile debuts with over one million installs

iOS launch more than doubles mobile audience, brings game to #1 in the App Store in eight countries

>In news that sounds like it came right out of 2007, RuneScape 2 - aka Old School RuneScape - is popular once more. Jagex has announced that over one million new users have installed the game following its full release on iOS last week.

>That added one million from October 30 onward is in addition to the existing one million+ users who installed the game on Android for its Members' Beta program. The combined groups lead to Old School RuneScape seeing a new record for daily active users since the game launched on PC in February of 2013.

>In addition, the game debuted at #1 in the App Store in eight countries, and in the top ten in fifteen countries.

>Old School RuneScape is a slightly updated version of RuneScape as it was in August of 2007, and was created for players who preferred the look and feel of the game before developer Jagex overhauled it entirely into its current incarnation, RuneScape 3.

>"After five years of successive growth since its PC launch in 2013, the arrival of Old School RuneScape on mobile is a hugely important milestone for Jagex in taking the RuneScape franchise multiformat," said Jagex CEO Phil Mansell. "Making our living games available to more players on more devices was a priority for us as we set out the third age of Jagex as, over the years, our players have grown up and some, who were PC players, now have alternative format preferences that fit their changed lifestyles."

Vanillaware thread

Haven't seen one in a while so I figured why not create one?

What games are you playing? Are you enjoying them? What do you like about them and what about them do you feel could be improved or better suit your tastes?

Similar 2D-styled games (like that Vagrant game or w/e it is) are also encouraged to be discussed.

Also please try to spoiler shit for those who haven't played these lovely games yet.

For my part I've played:

>Dragon's Crown

>Muramasa Rebirth

>Odin Sphere Leifthraisir

Looking forward to playing Grand Knight's History and Eventually GrimGrimoire, though I know next to nothing about either of them except for the latter being an RTS, and especially excited about 13 Sentinels, though I worry for its fate on the Vita. Sony needs to burn for this.

My thoughts on them based on what I've played of them thus far:

For Dragon's Crown I enjoyed what I played a pretty good amount (played the main story with the Amazon; didn't go completionist on it yet or anything with that very high-leveled requirement stuff such as repairing all the statues; only did 1 so far and stopped for the time being). The fanservice and exaggerated style were beautiful and great. Amazon's unarmed combat, especially when it came to her downward aerial attack… hoo boy.

The combat was slick and satisfying; it was quite a lot of fun to see how long I could keep myself in the air between dodges and aerial attacks and to keep combos going as long as humanly possible, juggling enemies was also a lot of fun as well as using powerful moves. The perk that makes you go stronger and faster the longer you keep your combo going absolutely helped this feeling very much, as you feel like a power-hungry maniac god that only craves destruction with how fast and how much you keep pummelling your opponents. The gameplay was far too much pure fun and that's great.

One thing I didn't like was as a general rule the power smash not feeling worthwhile to use due to how long it took to get your weapon back and how much more at risk you were without it, on top of you having to manually pick up your weapon from a specific location which could easily fuck with the flow of combat. I rarely bothered to use it as a result. Something that wasn't so much a gripe as it is just unusual is how much more powerful magical consumables such as rings were compared to shit like potions. I was having trouble with the final boss and I'd never used magical consumables for the whole game, but I finally caved and decided to incorporate it into my attack, and I beat it on my first try with most of my party still alive after it. The sheer difference in power was shocking and hilarious.

There was clearly a lot of love and effort put into this game. All the secret areas, little interactions like harassing townspeople getting you put in jail and whatnot, quests that somehow made the use of a 2D plane so effectively despite it seeming so limiting on a first glance. The animated CGs were absolutely stunning and were excellent little bonus rewards for quests that might otherwise have felt

Ironically though, I felt the story/plot and characters were a weaker part. The player character options didn't have much depth to them in terms of backstory or anything, which is fine since they're easily recognizable archetypes from shit that came from the days of D&D, old school RPGs and shit like Diablo and whatnot; it just would've been a bit nice to give them just a bit more personality than the very little explicit stuff they were given. Their designs told a lot of their story, and to their credit all their designs were excellent even including minor ones like the fairy and Rannie. I haven't done a full completionist on a character yet, so there's very likely more than I think; this is just from the from the standard main story rather than the postgame "main story" which seems quite significant.

I suppose that's just part of being a western-styled and western-based game, where its more focused on the world itself and the combined sum of its parts than to intensely give strong perspective from any single individual character, which is fine I guess.

Anyways that's enough autism for one OP, I'll probably continue this stream of autism later for the other games I've played as well, what are your own thoughts anons?

Civclassic Thread

It's time to start reinvigorating >>>/civ/ and bring in some fresh blood. For newcomers and oldfriends alike, we invite you to join us on Civclassic, a Minecraft server we've colonized and built a bastion of anon culture on. We used to have a strong presence on previous interations of the Civ-genre of servers like Civcraft 2.0, Civcraft 3.0, and Devoted; we're looking forward to good times again, and invite you to join us in building our capital. This thread is for helping newcomers learn about us, sharing screenshots and indulging in nostalgia, and planning out the future of our country.

To reach the capital, Palmyra, you'll need to walk to x:8450 z:-7150. When you first join the server you will spawn in a random part of the map. There is no teleportation and you will need to walk to the capital. If you feel you have spawned too far away, kill your character and respawn until you are close enough to make the journey. You must sleep in a bed in Palmyra to set your spawn. If you must logout, do not do it manually; you must use the /logout command to do so safely.

Fullderp: I die you die we all die for weedie edition

What's this all about?

Fullderp is a game where one of us declares himself the champ and takes a ragtag team of six Pokemon assembled by anons into an online competitive Pokemon battling simulator.

To quote one of Showdown's mods…

>@MacChaeger: None of these people are youtubers

>@MacChaeger: They impersonate verlis to to gain notoriety and attract new members

>@MacChaeger: These people regularly trick others into getting locked

>@MacChaeger: But this is the single most toxic group of players on PS

Can I give the champ something?

Of course. If we've got a champ, feel free to come in and watch and give him something when he calls for a new team. No experience necessary, and everything's done in-browser.

How does it work?

When the current champ calls "new champ", the first poster to claim it is our champ. The first six legal Pokemon suggested once champ has been claimed or "new team" has been called will be the team our champ uses to battle.

Suggesters are not to make multiple suggestions for a team unless 15 minutes have passed since their last request, or unless the champ specifically asks for resuggests.

The champ will be battling in Smogon OU unless he specifies otherwise.

——————————————————————

The Rules:

Failure to follow the rules will result in IMPEACHMENT and/or BULLYING.

1. The champ cannot forfeit or intentionally throw a match.

2. The champ may not edit a set without the suggester's permission.

3. All Pokemon must be nicknamed.

4. The champ is not allowed to timer stall.

5. If someone resuggests before 15 minutes have passed since their last suggest, the champ must ignore it.

6. The champ should replace resuggests with fresh suggests that come in later.

7. If champ gives himself Smogon sets, he's a faggot.

Fig continues to reveal itself to be a scam screwing over investors who do little research into the products they’re investing in. A fool and their money are easy parted, so post your feeling when you aren’t that fool and Fig and Obsidian are both on suicide watch.

War Thunder SHIPS and HELICOPTERS

I know some of you play this. There are no alternatives.

Ships just came out, along with helicopters. Helicopters require a long grind, but ships are now playable by everyone for free right out of the gate. (It was behind a paywall before.) The servers crashed the day they released it (yesterday) but they are back up now.

I haven't seen a war thunder thread ever, I've seen plenty of other shit MMO threads, but never a war thunder one. I think it's a decent game, it's not DCS, but it's the only other game even close and it's a million times more popular.

The best part is you get to seal club consolefags, they all have a "*" next to their name, to clearly indicate they are using an inferior control scheme and will die easily.

Anon's bizarre vidya adventure AKA /v/ makes an RPG maker game. (Edition): #008

We’re creating a video game in RPG Maker VX Ace together with other anons. Here’s how it works:

We have our own board over at >>>/bizarre/ to act as an archive for changes/resources/discussion. There will always be threads on /v/, but /bizarre/ will serve to host more permanent discussion.

Everyone is taking turns downloading the newest version of the game, making contributions before reuploading it for someone else to work on it. Only one person can actively work on it at a time. This is because if two people make overlapping changes to the database, scripts or switches, they will conflict resulting in one person having to redo all his work. Changes to the map and events can be copy-pasted from one version of a project to another so you’re free to work on new maps and new events if its not your turn and add them to the current version of the game once it is your turn.

It should work like this: OP posts newest version of the map. The first person (Anon #1) to respond to OP stating that he’s going to work on it becomes the active game dev. Once Anon #1 finishes and re-uploads it, the first person to respond to him gets to work on it. So on and so forth. Additionally, whenever you re-upload a new version, reply to the anchor post, it’ll make things a lot easier.

General Rules

>Don’t mess with maps, events or anything else you didn’t make. Although, adding minor stuff like a connection between two areas or fixing bugs and typos is all fine.

>If you’re okay with others editing your stuff, leave a note saying so.

>You’re free to add characters and the like, to the inter-dimensional tavern.

>You’re also free to make changes to game settings, unless its something we’ve agreed upon (we’ll probably do this via a poll)

FAQ

How do I RPG Maker VX Ace?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzqt1PzBxxQ&list=PLzevVXwTX9wipsdJnTsuzUoCLb9v5npat

What about RPG Maker MV?

>We decided in the last thread that we’re using VX Ace. We’re not changing this again. Get it out of your head right now. If you made content in MV you’ll have to back port it to VX Ace. It sucks, but we’re not doing any more engine changes.

Why don't you fucks use version control?

>Like RPG Maker MV, we tried that and the project died. Nobody wanted to learn git. It can't be helped. Plus someone needs a (((premium))) account if we want the project to be private.

Add X to the Game!

>Suggestions are fine, but if you want something added to the game. DO IT YOURSELF. Its not that hard.

What should I add?

>Go nuts, add whatever the hell you like! (However, please keep in mind that if the filesize of this project gets too large it’ll become unruly to work with. So please be somewhat conservative when adding large music or .ogv files.)

Is OP a faggot?

>Yes

>Which game to begin the series with?

Start with Re;Birth 1 to test the waters, then play Re;Birth 2 and/or Re;Birth 3 (with the Re;Translations), and then V-II.

>I've heard of bad translations in the Neptunia games, care to tell me more about it?

Translation Statuses are:

HDN, HDN Mk2 and Victory: NISA cancer.

Re;Birth 1 and V-II: Translation is alright, no worries from these ones.

Re;Birth 2: Not obviously bad at the start, but gets much worse as it goes along: in particular Neptune and Ram were screwed hard during localization. However, there is a Re;Translation made on our very own board (see above links).

Re;Birth 3: Better than the original NISA translation in Victory but still quite a lot of cancer. Main game has been retranslated, translators still required to translate DLC content.

All of the spin-offs: Varying translation quality. These range from cancer to mediocre. Recent releases have been somewhat better overall.

>I'm too poor to buy the games, where do I grab them?

Ask the Volafile or share threads.

Games that actually use current specs for gameplay

I've been trying to think of a game that could not be done on a GameCube but I can't think of any off the top of my head.

Aside from pushing muh grafx, what does modern hardware do that Gen6 (Dreamcast, GameCube, PS2, Xbox) couldn't?

It's not being used for more advanced AI, or better simulations as far as I can tell. Even shit like Musou still uses very little in the way of AI and simply uses the extra horsepower to render more dudes on screen, when the same number of dudes could be done on an older console at reduced fidelity.

So what do current consoles do that old consoles can't?

Tetris thread

I've gotten really into Tetris the past month. Let's discuss it! There's actually a lot more to talk about than you might think. There's many versions of Tetris, and a surprising amount of variation between versions. NES Tetris is completely different from TGM which is very different from Guidelines. Right now my favorite version is the one at Tetris.com because unlike other guidelines games it's not completely trivial to play single player, as the lock delay actually decreases after level 20, and after level 25 is an "almost killscreen" similar to the one after level 30 in NES Tetris. My high score on Tetris.com is 520,000.

I also really enjoy Vs. Tetris on Tetris Friends and Puyo Puyo Tetris, but the latter has really garbage online. Guidelines really shines in multiplayer more than singleplayer.

I wanna get into TGM, so I think I'm gonna get into it on NullPomino (a Java clone of Tetris that allows for a ton of customization). It looks really hard though.

And for some epin drama, Arika is taking down TGM videos on Youtube, and some people don't like the Tetris Company. Also Arika is super asshurt about TGM clones despite never releasing it in the west.

Super Mario Bros. 3 + All Stars

Other thread anon made ate shit all of a sudden, so I'd like to revive discussion about one of the best platformers of all time; and one of the reasons a lot of people here grew fond of Nintendo, before having that stripped away by the forgettable, generic experience of the NSMB series, among other things. I want this thread to stay old school though, unless you bring up Mario Maker, then that's fine.

What did you think of this game, first coming into it? Did it meet your expectations? Were the levels varied enough for you? Did you like any of the specific powerups? Did the tanuki suit throw you off guard?

Here's a small anecdote from me, I used to think the tanuki statue was for cosmetic purposes only, and just recently I realized you could pretty much absorb any hits that came at you with it, including fire from the ship and other previously invisible projectiles and hazards. I was pretty stoked about that, felt pretty dumb not knowing sooner though, my younger self always thought the purpose was to pull you down faster in underwater stages.

I also realized you could flip the staff with your tail, and smash it in statue form, only for it to come back. Pretty useless info, but neat detail nonetheless.

Here is an analysis on the game

https://invidio.us/watch?v=HxjN6S-5xxk&

Here is the GBA game with the e-reader levels preloaded into it as well.

I'm more of a NES/SNES type of guy, but the gba version alluded me with the e-reader add-on/Proto-DLC content, I've always hated how I couldn't play anything from the "e-world" when younger, it made me so mad, until today. I'm glad I can access it now, even if some levels are kaizo tier gimmicky.

Zen Vidya

What is your zen garden game, /v/?

>The Japanese rock garden (枯山水 karesansui) or "dry landscape" garden, often called a zen garden, creates a miniature stylized landscape through carefully composed arrangements of rocks, water features, moss, pruned trees and bushes, and uses gravel or sand that is raked to represent ripples in water. A zen garden is usually relatively small, surrounded by a wall, and is usually meant to be seen while seated from a single viewpoint outside the garden, such as the porch of the hojo, the residence of the chief monk of the temple or monastery. Classical zen gardens were created at temples of Zen Buddhism in Kyoto during the Muromachi period. They were intended to imitate the intimate essence of nature, not its actual appearance, and to serve as an aid to meditation about the true meaning of life.

The game that relaxes you, the game that gives you the rocks and sand to build your own harmonious garden.

Lately, I've been playing Planet Coaster, and that has been a very zen-like experience to me, where I can just arrange and create to my own hearts content, without much thought. It's been a welcome change after a five-week long binge that was Factorio, for nearly 10 hours each day.

Come zen out with me, my dudes. Let's talk about your zen garden games.

Games with a charming cast

Can we have a thread for video games that have charming and lovable cast members? Preferably lighthearted games but darker ones will do too. What games are filled with fun characters you grow to like and can interact with?

For me A Hat in Time and Summon Night: Swordcraft Story are great examples. I feel like playing something equally as lighthearted and fun and wanted you guys to recommend me something. I know that there are probably going to be a lot of recommendations for cute girls games, and that is completely fun, but I would prefer a more and I don't mean this word in a SJW way diverse cast, not in the cuck meaning of the word. I mean that I would like to preferably see a more cartoony cast of different creative cartoony beings of different genders with their own quirks and personalities like in A Hat in Time where we had Mafia men, Ghosts, Birds, aliens and other stuff like that.

Understanding Target Audience

Now I'm not sure, I think this should be obvious, but apparently it's not.

Basically in order for video game to return profit, i.e. to sell, said game should be made with specific target audience in mind.

And depending on the size of said audience game's budget should be increased or decreased.

But instead we see more and more games made for wrong target audiences with wrong budgets, resulting in financial failures.

Why is that?

If some nobody like me without any financial education can understand that, why stock holders, executives and other big boys with big money can't?

>DOA, a franchise for waifufags

>Fanservice reduced, fans outraged

>SC, a franchise for waifufags

>Make hardcore RPG with no political agenda (still featuring gays, lesbos and such)

Was exploring down South near the mining area when suddenly everything turned green and angry. A miasma of rads and screeching spooked me real good and had me running for safety. I ran straight into a group of 5 wastelanders gearing up to take down the bat who were still in the process of getting power armor ready. I pulled out my black powder pistol, furiously mashing reload behind a tree while the others reeled from the sudden conflict. Everyone scattered and hid but once the fog let up I sprinted out from behind my cover to see such beauty. Five suits of power armor, lasers missiles and nades flying and the beast. Twas beautiful to watch this battle. 10/10

Lootboxes and Belgian laws, the battle continues

As things go, the video gaming scene have taken a clear stance about the anti-gacha/lootbox law that popped out in Belgium and Netherlands. And their stance is clear - "These countries doesn't exist anymore for our games".

Outside of few games (to name them, the Dragon Ball gacha game Dokkan Battle, as well as Blizzard's Heartstone), who take the sensible approach and simply block microtransactions and/or offer free alternatives, most companies simply take the easy way out, block Belgian and Dutch players, and increase their costs to compensate for the lost money "caused by the evil Belgian laws".

The most recent company to join the fray is Square Enix, who decided in a simple move to purge Belgian players from his most popular mobile franchises, Mobius Final Fantasy (both Steam and mobile versions) and Final Fantasy Brave Exvius (quite impactful as this game was planned years ago to actually be Final Fantasy XVI, hence the Exvius who has no meaning outside of hiding the number).

Any other recent cases you noticed ? Any other games impacted by that ?

In spec ops it was exceedingly obvious that this trench wasn't full of soldiers, but not only can you not NOT burn them, but if you shoot anywhere near them the game will make that explosion significantly bigger so it burns them. It's contrived, very easy to tell what's going on, and the aftermath is obnoxious. Prior to this I thought it was pretentious, after this I thought it was just completely incompetent.

Recommend a Niche Game

I wanted to encourage something simple with this thread, get people to play vidya they might not have otherwise heard of. Think of an obscure game you've played and really liked that doesn't get talked about a lot, and write up what you liked about it and why others should check it out. If you're reading through this thread and one of the posts actually makes you want to check out the game in question, please mention so, and if you play it a bit and the thread is still up tell us your impressions of it.

Depending on the nature of the game if you can link to a download of it that would likely be appreciated.

I'll start with my recommendation, Chibi-Robo Clean Sweep. It was released only in Japan, but got an English patch a while ago. It's the proper sequel to the original Chibi-Robo on the gamecube, but with a ton of improvements. For those unaware, the basic gist is you're a 10 inch robot who's purchased by a family, and your objective is to make them happy, both by cleaning and solving their problems. You explore a house, clean up messes and try to figure out ways to, for example, get into the kitchen, or on the table. One of the big additions to this entry in the series is how much more mobile Chibi-Robo is, being able to throw his plug into outlets, climb on it if it's tethered on something, and even ride vehicles. It adds a lot to making the exploration interesting by opening up a lot of methods to get from point A to point B.

Another big change is there's a big reason to clean, since you're told how many stains and messes there are in a room, and can use your "chibi-vision" to identify where they are. And as you clean up areas of a room, you can replace furniture there too, allowing for customization of the map (not much, but it's still a very welcome addition). Also on that note, the actual house itself to explore is fairly big. While not as big as the original, there's still a lot of stuff to explore, and a lot of characters who will want their problems solved.

There's a lot of, for lack of better word, soul in this game. A lot of tiny touches, charming characters, and clever design choices. It's a shame this game didn't make it stateside, but you'll probably when you play see there's a bunch of stuff that would've been censored if it had, so in a way it's a bit of a blessing, with the only downside being this game wouldn't have gotten the sales it deserved. If you like quirky Japanese games, or if you've played the original Chibi-Robo and liked it, you should definitely consider checking this game out.

Actually think about spending one thousand(1000) dollars for a cheap particle effect someone did in 5 minutes that would be an afterthought of detail in a game made 20 years ago. In fact given that the majority of people who play dota 2 are outside of the US, they paid their currency which amounted to more than 1000, likely closer to 2000

How the fuck do these people pay their rent? The vast majority of people who buy this shit can not afford it simply by fact of living in the shithole countries that play dota.

What the fuck can be done about the 3rd worlder problem in videogames and how their purchasing power is outweighing the 1st world so heavily? This is all because of chink insects, south american monkeys and pinoy indogs and their nonexistent standards for quality.

Source of the Detective Pikachu Horror

Turns out the main artist behind the craft, one who is known for their "realistic pokemon" depictions, was actually hired for the movie. While their repertoire of images as a whole is full of nightmare monsters in he first place, their pokemon get a lot of attention as they are clearly based off of real world animals and have the fantasy elements blended with them.

However, the reason the things in the trailer look so fucking horrible is that they have the textures from these "realistic" pokemon placed on top of the classic shapes.

This is NO fucking different than those N64 games with the blocky characters but highly detailed textures that make it look fucking wrong.

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider gets Review Bombed after getting caught scamming consumers

https://www.oneangrygamer.net/2018/10/shadow-of-the-tomb-raider-review-bombed-following-price-cut/70902/

>Shadow of the Tomb Raider released on September 14th on Xbox One, PS4, and on Steam for PC. On October 16th the game received a massive 34% off discount on the main game, which originally cost $59.99 but has now been marked down to $39.59. The Croft Edition bundle pack also saw a discount, being marked down by 47% off, bringing the $109 bundle down to just $58.79, meaning that it would be cheaper to buy the most expensive bundle pack now than it would have been to buy the standard game at launch.

>The deep discount so soon after the release of the game caused a lot of strife within the gaming community, particularly Steam users who expressed their frustrations by thumbing down the game causing it to have a mixed rating on Steam.

>According to OSTROG, they mention that the biggest issue people have is that the game’s middling content coupled with the deep discount just barely a month removed from its release has spurred a lot of anger from within the community.

>In response people have complained that not only is the game marked down but so is the DLC, the special editions, and the season pass, making them rather angry for having paid full price for the game at launch.

>Gamers are also finally waking up to the realization that the new Tomb Raider reboot trilogy is a far cry in quality from what they originally thought. Lara Croft as a character has been completely ruined by turning her into a bipolar, neurotic, psychopath.

>The realization didn’t finally hit gamers until the discount took place just a month after the release of the game, and then gamers were able to finally piece together just how regressive Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal have portrayed Lara.

>Maybe now gamers will recognize that the reboots were never really proper depictions of Lara Croft as a worthwhile or memorable heroine, especially since she spent more time crying and whining than being heroic.

>Either way, early adopters are angry about Square Enix shortchanging them with the discount. The publisher probably discounted it early because it’s off to a rather poor sales start, according to Steam Spy, and Square thought to help bolster sales with a discount. The plan basically backfired because now a lot of month-one buyers are feeling about as spurned as a Liberal male feminist who haphazardly comes across his wife on Blacked.com.

Guess we can now finally see the death of Reboot Tomb Raider sooner than expected.

Japanese Learning Thread: 同士ラブ Edition

So, you wanna learn the Nipponese, huh? Well, you've come to the right thread. You know the drill; All of the relevant resources are available below. It's not an official list or anything, just an OP I threw together from items taken from previous threads. If you have any suggestions on how this list can be improved, then please don't hesitate to say something.

>I'm completely new, where do I start?

Learn the Kana. Start with Hiragana and then move on to Katakana. Yes, you need both, and yes stroke order is important. Use Realkana or Kana Invaders for spaced repetition. Alternatively, you can use the Anki deck, but I'd recommend the first two. Tae Kim has a Kana diagram on his website, and you can use KanjiVG for pretty much any character.

>Alright, I know the Kana. Now what?

You have to learn vocabulary and grammar in order to speak and understand the language. Some will tell you to grind the Core2k/6k deck until you're blue in the face, others will tell you that grammar is more important. Truth is, you need both, but it doesn't really matter which one you decide to do first. You're teaching yourself here, so you move at your own pace and do what you're most receptive to. If you want grammar first, then Tae Kim has a great introductory grammar guide, there are numerous grammar related videos in Anon's all-in-one-Anki-package, IMABI has an active forums and an abundance of information on grammar, and there's always YouTube if you're lazy. On the other hand, if you want to learn vocab first, then grab the Core2k/6k and grind until you're blue in the face. For mnemonics, see Kanji Damage.

>Well this is great and everything, but I still need more help

Destiny 2 P2P after the 18th

Just a reminder to download and see if you like it. Personally, I was surprised to find the gameplay was fairly fast paced and the gunplay was nice. They also focused on making the enemies fun to shoot which FPS games often ignore. About my only complaints have to deal with non-gameplay related things such as.

<why are all the women in the future wearing hijabs?

<world isn’t very destructive making everything seem like a set piece

<pants on head story and lore

But like I said, gameplay is much better than I expected so I figured it was worth reminding you guys as well as getting your opinions on it.

an open world Tony Hawk's Underground would be great

I don't have a great write-up for this thought or anything, I just really wish games like Neversoft's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games were still made.

Not games like the Skate series that focus on more realistic physics and zoom in on your character's feet, but fun games like Aggressive Inline that feel more like a video game and less like a damn simulator.

STEEP was and is okay for what it is, but realistically downhill is the only direction to go and it limits a lot of free roaming fun and arcade-style trick creativity.

THUG Pro is really cool too, but I can't play the same set of levels with the same muddy low-fidelity PS2 graphics and enjoy it the same as I did when the games were first coming out.

I just want video games to be fun again.

NISA released Disgaea 5 "Complete" on Steam only to not tell people that it's missing features.

>NISA delays Disgaea 5 Complete for months after they were stupid enough to release the whole game in a demo. Even if they believed piracy ruins sales, then they should have immediately released it.

>After they finally release it. They tell no one that the game is missing features that were even in the Switch version like multiplayer features and the map editor.

>Their first excuse to why they didn't have it on the PS4 was due to (((Sony))) intervening (redirecting the blame for their incompetence is a common NISA tactic). Retards bought it. However, these rules are not present on Steam so why are they still missing.

>What makes it even better is you wouldn't normally have access to these features until a few hours into the game which is past the refund stage. They're only now offering refunds now that they're caught and can be sued for false advertisement.

>Game still has the horrible translation where skills have the wrong description.

>Meanwhile pirates got the game months ago, with a fixed translation, balancing mods, extra features, and music from the older games added in.

Looks like this almost went over everyone's head due to all the Sony kikery. Comments to the third image can be found below.

https://steamcommunity.com/id/azkat/recommended/803600/

If you are still interested in playing the actual Complete version of Disgaea 5. Then find the demo and apply the crack and mods listed below. If you can't find it, then just ask and I'll upload the version I have. It's still a great TRPG with tons of customization and tactics to absolutely break the game until late post game.

R: 61 / I: 8 / P: 10 [R] [G] [-]

Now why in the hell would the nobles of Ferelden be so eager to keep a daughter of a commoner on the throne? The commoner who most of them despise, who kept squeezing them for taxes and levies and who all but seized the crown for himself.

Both Alistair and the last Cousland have more legitimate claim on the throne. Arguably, even as a Grey Warden, Cousland would have a stronger claim than never acknowledged bastard Templar-turned-Grey-Warden Alistair.

Anora may be a good administrator but as a queen she failed to deliver on her main duty: producing an heir. This is the whole reason the country was in such a disarray after the death of Cailan. Now, despite Cailan banging every maiden that caught his eye, he never had any bastards; which may point to him being sterile. The nobles still threw that accusation at Anora.

Although rockstar seems pozzed with kike propaganda, I do want dream of a perfect open world meanstreets action game. This is what I wish for

>punchy gun combat. Ive got to say, I liked t gta4s combat a little better than V for various reasons. Shooting a shotgun in that game actually felt powerful and deadly. I also like how shooting npcs made them stumble around and limp, unlike how V just made them fall over

> Make it so the player feels a heart pounding sensation. When killing people, they should do more than having them fall over. I want to mortally wound them and stare at them choke in their blood, or scream as they see you walk up to finish them. I want to shoot people legs and see them limp or crawl away to cover, and even have some fight back with every bit if strength they have. Also, shooting people in the abdomen should make then not die instantly, and they should roll around in their pool of blood for a few minutes. Also shooting limbs should cripple them.

>better car mechanics, that actually feel realistic, because V felt arcady. They should make you feel like you are actually driving a car.

What do you want in a perfect GTA?

Valve's had a rough few months

So for those who haven't been in the loop there's a lot going on with Valve. They're launching a new game (soon) which regardless of how you might feel about it there's no denying they'll have tons of people playing it. They've got hardware like the Vive around, they're updating their SteamOS every month, they have their steam controllers out and about and the big rabscuttle Gay "The Rotund Ton" BeNewell has been quaking the scenes with each debut at every convention going on.

Now that we're caught up let's get to the good shit. Valve's been fucking up everything lately and it's hilarious. Firstly Artifact. Gaben himself has been at numerous conventions such as PAX, tossing out beta keys left and right, promising everyone who gets one will have access to the closed beta starting in October. Some people didn't want them so they sold them to eager fans for a hundred bucks, some as high as 200. The problem?

October's over. There's been no beta. It's now a week of early access instead. Fans are furious and if you check out the Artifact Reddit you can see all kinds of shit, the only posts users care about are ones that are shitting on Valve or making fun of the game. Valve in their infinite wisdom also has an upcoming Tournament for Artifact in March 2019. Open to all players. This sounds pretty fair until you realize people have been playing in the closed closed Beta since March 2018 and they are allowed to enter if they want and win a cash prize of up to 1 million dollars. Putting everyone who isn't one of those people at a massive disadvantage.

It gets better. Back in 2016 one of the key Valve guys behind the VR push came out on stage to say "next year (2017) you won't regret having a Vive." Two years later, there's been nothing but two tech demos and no games you couldn't play with a bog standard phone VR. Don't worry though, Valve and HTC's Vive is among the worst selling VR head sets ever, behind even the PSVR. The Vive has about 600K users on Steam, a platform with 90 million active users.

Of those 90 million active users however, you might be surprised to hear less and less are actually playing their games.

I haven't really got much to say about the Steam Controller other than a quote from one of the biggest Valve fans ever, Tyler McVicker of Valve News Network:

>I have 4 [Steam controllers,] I never use them.

Lets not forget about the SteamOS, a platform nobody uses, and the Steam Machines the legendary console killers. Another thing, all the Steam sales from Halloween to the end of the year leaked, every single one.

Lastly TF2, darling of Valve fans everywhere got its first update in a year recently! The Halloween update, how awesome. The last update the game got? 2017's Halloween update.

THE SHILL AWARDS

IT'S COMING /v/

Not only are they shilling a game for being "indie", but they're also leaving out Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Xenoblade 2 for fucking Soy of War. All of these games have been pushed HARD by Sony other than Celeste which is being pushed hard by both Nintendo of America and the typical indie clique that started GamerGate. Might as well rename it The ResetERA Awards, because the list is practically catered to them. In any case are you looking forward to "I sucked off people to get trailers for my shitty show"? I hope you're looking to get a good laugh, only an idiot would take this seriously.

Fromsofts VR game may be a downlow Bloodborne 2 trailer

>VR exploration game about kids and fairies

>Secret items found around game

>Book with Bloodborne font and hunter image talking about 'men carving their bones into the weapons of gods'

>Small white doll "from an unfinished tale that rescues you from bad dreams" in the Make Contact pose and if you hold it for a minute the arms change position just like in Bloodborne

>As white as 'the sage of the sea' which is a malgormed little thing that looks like the orphon of kos mixed with a manitee

>'from an unfinished tale that seeks to stop people escaping the dream'

>ending credits to the game has doll in center frame holding the creature like the doll in bloodbornes true ending holding the infant great one.

They teased Bloodborne with Marvelous Chester in Atorias of the Abyss, they teased Sekiro with the 'eastern hunter' in Bloodborne. They have a running trend of teasing future content in existing stuff. Buuut they also reference older stuff with things like the Moonlight Greatsword from Kings Field. Were it just the "Blood and Bones" book i would assume reference, but the doll and monster making 'contact' talking about 'an unfinished tale' and 'escaping the dream'? Bloodborne wasn't about escaping the dream. It was 'seek paleblood' and overtime you learnt about the nightmare of mensis and all the child kidnapping and shit. If anything the Blood Drunk Hunters in the Old Hunters DLC could apply to this but the doll in BB never aided them and Kos wasn't quite keeping them trapped in that layer of the dream either.

Personally im conflicted, sour grapes meme aside i genuinely consider BB the best action game made in the last ten years no question. But do we really need a sequel? look at the shitshow of DS3 and its nightmare of trying to balance story and not turn into a 'I KNOW THAT REFERENCE, I KNOW WHAT THAT THING IS!' style bullshit i dont think BB needs that. Look at online shit like the famous Paleblood Hunt essay and they story is pretty much explained. Do they need to expand on it in ways that could easily taint the purity of its self contained story?

Man i honestly don't know. But fromsoft has a 3rd game in the works, most seem to want/assume armoured core but who knows?

Alien Love

Alright /v/ let's conceptualize an AlienS video game piece by piece.

>You first fag.

All I have is a linear gimmick-ridden game with each gimmick separated and pretending to be a new skirmish campaign, when it's just the same missions replayed and arranged by category.

You come to a stop at a giant metal door. You go inside the generator room and pull the lever to activate them. Everything lights nicely, but you see the door you came through closed by an alien and the control panel destroyed. Another alien slaps your shit, pulls the lever and acid burns it.

This is an assassin alien section where you shoot in the dark and it gets progressively more interesting as the game advances.

A)

Everything is dark except for some pre-placed flares and your own short-ranged light to know if there's a wall in front of you.

The aliens are very lenient this round, giving you plenty of time to run up to the lights and shoot from there. You have the funny surprise of the alien breaking the light or throwing the flare somewhere else as you approach.

2) The room is lit but the aliens developed perfect invisibility(luckily they're slow in this phase) You have to damage them enough to make them bleed. 2.5) Careful not to damage the gas pipes and generators.

3) All the lights are on, but the aliens can cause temporary blindness to you and you have to fight like this.

4) Any source of light is often a trap to a pit fall. The aliens at very slow but very big. Tails become a problem if you don't shoot them in time.

5) You have to use the environment and ride moving crates on ceiling rails. All while the small aliens try to make you fall in the darkness full of blind zombie aliens which attack via acid.

6) You have to use the environment and lure them at X Y Z coordinates and kill them on that exact spot or else you're stuck in the room.

B) Advancing doom wall.

There's a slow moving doom wall made out of aliens. Doors can hold them. Ocasionally a few real aliens pop out of them to fight you. Some doom walls have health and can be killed by flamethrowers and rocket launchers alone, some are too gargantuan in size to ever be stopped.

The first few battles you face is against a doom wall which moves away from you.

With the second batch of doom wall you start a tug o war ala Karateka where you fight for territory.

The third batch of doom walls always put you in a corner, but you always escape or the wall always stops and waits for you to finish it off.

The fourth batch puts you in a corner and you die if you didn't deal enough damage since the beginning.

The fifth batch Doom Wall A) - smaller multiple doom walls chase you around the map and you have to push against the little ones to escape the big ones. Starts off easy to train you, then gets a hell lot harder.

Sixth batch - Doom Wall B) A non-advancing doom wall because it is present in all the walls of the whole level. This doom wall can grab you and kill you. The distance between you and it varies from inactive to 1-10 feet.

5) You fight a vertical doom wall from an elevator you control.

18) Doom Wall B)

19) Doom Wall A)

20) You fight a gargantuan vertical doom wall inside a large pit from a bunch of ladders, walls you climb.

21) Fight a gargantuan Doom Wall type A in your APC in a large crater.

Assassins/dark sections (x)

Doom Walls (x)

APC chase sequences

Pre-plan alien hive raids

Pre-plan base defense and evac plans

Smaller ideas:

Elevator sections/safe areas which aren't safe.

Alien kidnaps you, facehugs you in hive, got to remove chestburster in time - missions.

More small ideas:

Alien suit missions

Exo suit missions

Detective/The Thing missions

Ammo preserving missions

Boss missions.

Stealth chase sequence missions

Aliens come in all shapes and sizes, but their abilities differ greatly and feel otherwordly. Aliens can be immune to most bullets or non-bullets. Aliens can slowly go through walls. Aliens can morph and transform between each other. Aliens can become queens. Aliens can revive. Aliens breathe fire and various gases. Aliens can place bombs and viruses. Aliens can posses you. Aliens can swing on webs. Aliens can build walls at doors to block you. Aliens can go through you to kill you. Aliens can blind you, burn you, electrocute you, scare you, rape you, make you sick, mess with your mind, disguise as humans.

-my steel production is too small, its all used so i ordered to build another steel factory, but its never finished. even though i have wood rocks and people. nigger game keeps it unfinished

-for some reason I have 600 people but all of them do not have class. when I try to do something like build building, they don't do anything

-I have 50 or more warriors. I order them to attack something but those nigger just walk around. I cannot click them and order again. they just do nothing

-distribution settings are broken and doesn't work. and icons don't tell anything

49 to 61

1440p is even worse, not even going to go into 4k, or how the 2070 handles it. Jesus, this is all for a card that's nearly 1 fucking grand. Imagine bumping it to the 2080ti and paying 1 grand just to get your games to run at a full 60fps. Now that's what I call the goodest of goyim.

Anyone played the 49 inch Samsung with a NVIDA Setup?

Want to buy a few things before the "Black Friday" and then "Cyber Monday" Hordes Descend and leach chaos in their wake. Decided to build a new computer and have been stocking up, only a few parts short.

Most notably, need a monitor. The 49 inch Samsung looks fucking amazing, but the setup I'm building is NVIDIA. I have a Titan V, which I'm going to try to sell and get 2 2080 ti (though I know the fees from the Titan V alone probably won't cover it).

The other monitor I'm looking at is an Alienware 34 inch 1900R. Anyone have any experience with this one? At least this one is GSYNC so I can get up to 120 fps without any screen tearing. Any advice?

Whats the deal with Genwunners becoming 'the man'?

So i played Pokemon Red and Blue on release when i was like 10. Great little games that proved to be very popular with the age group at the time and spawned a billion dollar media empire.

Now 20 years later Pokemon Let's Go! is a monstrously cut down retelling that seems to be a disappointment on all fronts, but you know the strangest thing?

People who played red and blue as kids saying "its okay its cut down, its for kids!". As though children are automatically dumber and videogames need to be dumber for them rather than teach them to think and problem solve.

I asked a few people i know if they realised how patronising it is and if they were aware they became 'the man' and are now the adults judging kids as stupid and unable to deal with the exact same shit you did at their age and most of them seemed a little shocked and they didn't even notice they were doing it.

We often talk about SJW's and outrage culture making games into propaganda. But what about the fucks turning into the 'think of the children' crowd that tried to ruin shit for them in the 90's and not even realising they are actively defending games being altered so they no longer teach future generations to problem solve or use lateral thinking anymore?

Its not talked about much and i'm a cynical fuck so surprised i even noticed, but it just seems kind of fucked up in a real patronising way.

Spyro Reignited STILL requires a download

How the hell did everyone miss this?

So, remember how they delayed this piece of shit so that they could fit all the games on disk? Well, fuck you.

>Spyro Reignited Trilogy, which was initially scheduled for release in September, was later delayed to November.

>At the time, many assumed the delay would allow Activision to have all three games available on disc. That’s because the publisher had previously announced that only the first game would be on disc, and physical version owners would have to download the two remaining games.

>Unfortunately, while the delay did help, you’re still going to need to download a big update on day one. Activision confirmed to IGN that the disc version comes with the full game of Spyro the Dragon, and some levels from Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon.

>The rest, Activision clarified, is included in the day one update. This means that you’ll be able to play some stages from Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon, though Activision didn’t give an exact count. We’re also not yet sure how big the update is going to be.

http://archive.is/0rPHl

Some sources claim that the game is only 36 gigs, others claim it's 55. Either way, you can't actually play Ripto's Rage and Year of the Dragon fully without downloading something.

In other words, (((Activision))) and Toys for Bob lied about their reasons for the delay.

OW Dev Conspiracy?

I know you hate the game with passion but this time I would like to explore a certain aspect of the game, that is the mess within competitive mode, I have been wondering if the way it frustrates non-eSport players is intentional, I mean, what could Blizzard possibly win by having 90% of their player base in a permanent state of rage and frustration over the fact that competitive barely reflects any semblance of player skill ?

Let's not even forget the smurf issue which may be common in other games but apparently never discussed as much as in OW, the devs have just dismissed the claims saying smurfs climb fast enough to be a non-issue for new players, of course, the only obvious reason in that regard is the fact that the game is not free to play.

Still, I would like to know what you think could there be a benefit for acti-blizzard for having one of the most "toxic" game environments so far?

> The developer behind the fan translation of several tales of games, suddenly quit Tales of Destiny DC after 10 years of trying to translate it, and took down all of the other games he translated. Apparently Namco gave him a job as a Community Manager to prevent him from doing any future localizations.

> Several years ago, there was a Star Trek Online player who was regularly datamining the game's assets, finding content that would come out months later. He suddenly "stopped" doing this because he was paid off by Cryptic, as a result he started up one of those weekly game podcasts that nobody gives a flying fuck about as if the datamining never happened.

> Path of Exile has a long history of "dubious" streamer RNG, where it seems like some Streamers get more and better drops that average players. Not to mention the fact that GGG bankrolls them in hundreds of dollars of cosmetic lootboxes every league..

So I've been playing this game on PC, and I must say I kinda understand why people bought an Xbox One at launch now. The game is a ton of fun, although the soundtrack is kinda shit. Another thing I like is how you can customize the way you drive, so if you wanna go full sim or full daytona then that's a possibility. That said I REALLY want them to have custom soundtrack support soon, since Horizon 3 had it but not this game.

That said I'm kinda surprised they just abandoned the influence system as soon as you finish the first year. It kinda sucks since you don't get to see people until you finish it. Then again RPG elements are abused harder than muslim wives, so I can understand why they had it in the game and then fucked off with it. That said, holy shit does this game nonstop ask you to buy shit, it's so obnoxious to the point where I'd abandon the game if it wasn't so much fun. Also is it me or can you not actually race people anymore. Also I really REALLY hope they add in either spotify support or some sort of way to add in your own tunes.

Fullderp: Shitmons Gone Wild edition

What's this all about?

Fullderp is a game where one of us declares himself the champ and takes a ragtag team of six Pokemon assembled by anons into an online competitive Pokemon battling simulator.

To quote one of Showdown's mods…

>@MacChaeger: None of these people are youtubers

>@MacChaeger: They impersonate verlis to to gain notoriety and attract new members

>@MacChaeger: These people regularly trick others into getting locked

>@MacChaeger: But this is the single most toxic group of players on PS

Can I give the champ something?

Of course. If we've got a champ, feel free to come in and watch and give him something when he calls for a new team. No experience necessary, and everything's done in-browser.

How does it work?

When the current champ calls "new champ", the first poster to claim it is our champ. The first six legal Pokemon suggested once champ has been claimed or "new team" has been called will be the team our champ uses to battle.

Suggesters are not to make multiple suggestions for a team unless 15 minutes have passed since their last request, or unless the champ specifically asks for resuggests.

The champ will be battling in Smogon OU unless he specifies otherwise.

——————————————————————

The Rules:

Failure to follow the rules will result in IMPEACHMENT and/or BULLYING.

1. The champ cannot forfeit or intentionally throw a match.

2. The champ may not edit a set without the suggester's permission.

3. All Pokemon must be nicknamed.

4. The champ is not allowed to timer stall.

5. If someone resuggests before 15 minutes have passed since their last suggest, the champ must ignore it.

6. The champ should replace resuggests with fresh suggests that come in later.

7. If champ gives himself Smogon sets, he's a faggot.

DOOM 2016 & RESIDENT EVIL 4

Short version;

DOOM is basically a carbon copy of RE4 and you're too blind to see the carrot on a stick. Some people call it the pinata.

Long version;

I've been meaning to write this blogpost for a while.

I played RE4 for the first time in 2007(?). When the first PC port released, keyboard only. I wasn't able to finish the game because it bugged out at a certain room on older GPUs.

I thought this game was the greatest shit ever. I did eventually finish it with a save game past the room. But those thoughts would pass the next time I attempted to play the game again, and again and again. What happened was I stopped being a retard. RE4 was shit. As a Resident Evil title and a game by itself.

The environments were dogshit, the enemies lined themselves up to be shot. Invincible QTE animations. Dropping ammo so you have to keep changing guns. In fact I found it fascinating how the game was deliberately programmed to be a constant pinata depending on how you played the game. There are no puzzles. You move from one shitty arena to the next at a snail pace and shoot boring stuff in the face. Farming every tiny item to upgrade your "RPG stats". etc etc. It's hard to express in words.

I guess the simplest way to put it is the the game is designed in certain areas to constantly fool the player into thinking it's good…. like the MMO carrot on a stick or whatever. The game drags on forever with the same garbage.

Now I've just bought DOOT for about 10 dollarydoos but I've played it before up until you reach the outside surface area after the intro and the game is a copy of RE4s psychological manipulation blueprint. It's a constant carrot on stick, battle arenas, no exploration. Enemies spitting out items, invincible QTEs. "RPG mechanics".

You'll find alot of shit games have an upgrade system, so you dont think about how the game is actually shit.

The long story is I hope I'm wrong, but I already know I'm not. It's only 10 dollars and there's multiplayer. I won't lose any sleep over it. Downloading it now.

Stories of Legendary Developers

Once in a while there comes a game that seems almost impossible for the platform it's made for, or the circumstances it's made under to be absolutely insane. I'm sure we've all taken in plenty of stories like that and some of them may have even made some developer who just made a good game into one you deeply respect.

Recently I've learned a lot about Lobotomy Software, a small team in the 90s that only ever released three games, Powerslave, Duke Nukem 3D Saturn and Quake Saturn. They consisted of ex-Nintendo employees and wanted to take their crack at making their dreams come true. After assembling a small team they produced the Build Engine version of Power Slave, a standard first person shooter of the 90s with a wise-cracking protagonist, A-to-B levels and was seen as a bit of a derivative game at the time.

After a few deals and contracts were made, they began production on Playstation and Saturn versions of the game. Instead of porting the Build game over an entirely new engine was made called Slave Driver, a full 3D engine with effects like colored lighting and detailed 3D environments that in its best circumstances could hit a solid 60FPS while looking far better than any other 3D game on those systems.

Not only did they push the technological envelope, Lobotomy redesigned the game entirely, crafting completely new levels, new mechanics and systems such as explosive jumping (and only shortly after Quake 1 came out), and structured the game like a 3D Metroid game where you have tons of routes through each level, various exits unlocking new stages, earning new powers and finding weapons which allow you to blow up walls, jump higher, levitate in the air, slowly fall to the ground, breathe for longer underwater, and expand your maximum health. Powerslave was one of a kind. They even had time to add in a bonus game, Death Tank provided you found all the Lobotomy Team Dolls.

After Powerslave was met with meek success, only really hitting strong sales in Europe the team struggled. They eventually secured rights to port Duke Nukem 3D and Quake to Sega Saturn, rebuilt in the Slave Driver engine. Despite pushing what was thought to be possible on the system and producing what are considered to be the greatest ports of those games at the time, Lobotomy fell into dark times and it was revealed that for the entirety of the process of porting those two games they were unable to pay their staff. Most worked there simply out of passion for the projects and for the hope that some day the studio would hit it big. The day never came, and during the prototyping phases of Powerslave 2 the studio ended up shutting its doors.

The bit of good news at the end of it all is that this incredible game isn't stuck on consoles, and you don't have to settle for the inferior DOS game. Powerslave EX by Kaiser (TurokEX, Doom64EX, and ForsakenEX) while being made more difficult to find is available out there to play, it is a port of the superior console game with better performance, high resolutions, and although the version out there is not quite perfect the latest news is that the project isn't dead yet, Nightdive has trademarked the IP, and may be the next thing Kaiser works on. The port itself mixes and matches features from both the Saturn and Playstation versions. You can download it here: https://mega.nz/#!045XyQBI!-oCdl0uNMbN0dK7k0X0hwS9vvtetBnwKyVbAdFRKtF4 but be warned there's a distinct lack of polish, it's a lot easier on PC and the game doesn't feel exactly like the console versions do in terms of movement, player size, aiming, etc.

The fact is these guys worked their asses off on a dead-end system they considered "retarded" they still gave it their all, pushed boundaries in technology and in genre as at that point there was no shooter quite like that while being as tightly designed. That is something I consider incredible.

What are some of your favorite stories of developers going against the odds and achieving tremendous results?

Both with case, manual and posters with these tiny ads as if they're brand new How I miss manuals

>Luigis Mansion, Ocarina of Time & Star Wars Rogue Squadron 3

Only the CDs

Games so far I want to get are

>PN03, Tales of Symphonia and, maybe, Blood Omen 2. Depending how censored the latter is. So, recommend me some must haves, call me a faggot and general Gamecube thread I guess.

Final Fantasy Fags Assist

FF7 is on sale so once again I am considering buying it but I always run into the same fucking question. Should I buy it or wait for the remake? I've heard that FF7, in particular, got FUCKED by the passage of time.

Also which is better, Steam version or PS4 version?

A friend shilled Dying Light to me and it seemed really shit at first but after 5~ hours in it I'd say it rates an "OK" out of me. Maybe worth a pirate if your backlog isn't too large.

Apparently, Chris Avellone is going to be a "narrative designer" or some shit for the sequel. I know he hasn't done anything of worth since New Vegas, but damn it I want to believe it might be worth playing. Please help me get over this irrational feeling of hope, as it is self apparent that it is better to have never loved at all than to have loved and lost.

Games that were way more fun than expected

Got Sniper Elite 4 on a sale and man, it's way more entertaining than it has any right to be. Basically, just pure savage joy. The story is kinda dogshit but who plays Sniper Elite for the plot?

What other games did you anons come across that were more fun that you expected?

R: 193 / I: 68 / P: 14 [R] [G] [-]

Exclusive capeshit is the best thing Sony has had since the dawn of their company.

Well what do you think fellas?

Looks like good ol' Peter Parker and the old coot Stan Lee are finally bringing some sales to PS4.

Do you guys think other devs are going to start doing more capeshit now that this happened?

Maybe some actual fun games will be made with some heart and dedication?

Really hoping for a Punisher game but we all know that it will be some lukewarm shit

BLIZZARD DOES BLACK FACE ON OVERWATCH STREAM

http://archive.is/BNjys

>Overwatch fans on social media are criticizing the developer for the segment. Blizzard has not responded to Dot Esports’ request for comment.

>Race-related issues like blackface don’t have the same history in Korea as they do in the United States. However, South Korea does have a widely-documented relationship with blackface, with multiple high-profile incidents occurring over the past two years.

On Saturday Night Live Korea in 2017, a performer donned blackface to impersonate a cartoon character from Korean kids show Dooly the Little Dinosaur. A Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) play called “The Blacks” was also criticized for its use of blackface. On Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS), Laughing Legend Match featured a skit of a woman wearing blackface and a cabbage leaf skirt. In the same year, K-pop group Mamamoo was criticized for blackface during a Bruno Mars cover. All incidents were widely criticized by international media.

>Overwatch has been lauded for its diverse hero lineup, which features a range of men and women from across the globe. Though there’s likely no ill intent with the Doomfist cosplay, it’s not a practice that aligns itself with Blizzard’s long-touted message of global inclusivity. Recently, Blizzard has been criticized for not having a black female hero in its lineup; the cast has one black-coded hero, Orisa, but no actual playable black women. Fans expressed concern on social media when Overwatch’s new hero, Ashe, was revealed. The problem wasn’t that Ashe is white; rather, fans are upset that Blizzard hasn’t yet created a black woman character out of the 29 available heroes. Early concept art of Ashe showed the hero with a similar design and brown skin.
