Big Titty Nazi Schoolgirls club #(148)8: Guardian's Crusade

This time we're playing Guardian's Crusade for the Playstation. Fuck the post below this, you get the info dump in the OP this time:

Guardian's Crusade

Release date: 1998 (JP) 1999 (NA/PAL)

System(s): Playstation

Developer: Tamsoft

Publisher: Tamsoft (JP) Activision (NA/PAL)

Where to get it

Legitfags: ___ebay or something lmao_______

Piratefags: https://mega.nz/#F!TcJgXKQY!94S7fCmd9RiiQAz4JU5syA or wherever else you get roms

Installation

Just run the game in your favorite Playstation emulator, (if not original hardware) and make sure you have the BIOS files. The Mega folder above has copies of Mednafen and pSX for Windows with the BIOS files added. Linux users should be able to get Mednafen from their repositories and download the BIOS from the Mega folder if they don't have them. (by default they go in ~/.mednafen/firmware)

Mednafen is the better emulator, while pSX is less accurate but runs on absolute toasters. To start the game with Mednafen, you can just drag the .cue file onto mednafen.exe and press Alt+Shift+1 to bind your controller inputs. Press F9 to take a screenshot which will be saved to the snaps folder. The input settings for pSX are in File → Configuration and the default screenshot key is F12.

Gameplay tips

Both sets of shoulder buttons rotate the camera, and select gives you a minimap. Press triangle to run and square to ask Navi Nehani for a hint.

The Big Titty Nazi Schoolgirls club is a /vg/ book club for discovering and discussing interesting vidya. Some of it is good and some of it is bad, but as long as it's got something worth discussing it's welcome to be submitted. If you want to suggest a game fill out the template and post it. By the end of the month OP will pick the game that seems like the best choice so feel free to discuss which game you think would work out best.

It makes things a little easier if you fill out this template when making a suggestion: https://ghostbin.com/paste/dzpwd

That way your post can be copied and pasted into the next OP if we play the game you suggest concise and informative. Submissions should include a webm or embedded gameplay video to give people an idea of what the game is like. (without spoiling too much if applicable)

Space Thread

Just remember, space is the spookiest of places.

Now that is out the way time to wet your appetite for some space vidya.

I can humbly recommend for your pleasure a series of vintage free games; Oolite, Pioneer, or Vega Strike. If sir is in for something more autismal there is always Aurora 4x. Of course this does not restrict sir's menu and they are free to propose what would satiate their appetitie.

Anyone try out Total Chaos?

Content finished version of the game just came out and it has some grimy/rusty aesthetics that I really like and can be seen in games like Out of Hell, Killing Floor and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

PlanetSide 2 General

PlanetSide 2 is a free to play online combined arms shooter where three factions duke it out and the side which has the most OP toys of the week wins.

The three factions include: Privatized Death Squads, True Gommunism and Gay Niggers From Outer Space.

There has to be at least a few of you that still play this game. I know a few old [wwew] boys who I fought in game past week or two.

Recent fuck ups of DBG include: Giving VS the most powerful of 3 faction specific Flash weapons which can melt enemy armor with the efficiency of a Harasser gun, performance taking a shit thanks to that patch across both PC and PS4, removing /orders chat, nerfing the Valkyrie by making it take around 25% more small arms damage (now reverted), server performance being total trash, new weapons with once more the VS ones being the most OP of them all.

Hey, but at least I saw a developer play the game on TR. Although I still haven't seen a single fucking developer play NC on Emerald in my entire life. I am entirely convinced that there is not a single NC player as a designer in DBG. I at least have confirmation that one designer plays TR which is something.

7th Gen

True, this gen is overshadowed by its prodigious predecessor and true, this is the gen that saw the introduction of all the cancerous elements that ruined gaming forever, but it didn't happen overnight, I think there are some quality early to mid life titles, progressively more and more buried under the mountain of normalfag garbage. And in general it's an interesting gen to talk about, with the atmosphere of hype and excitement for the future during its launch days and the slow decay into modern gaming. It's like a story arc with pottery.

tfw there's no cool startup collage video like with the 6th gen :^(

Dominions 5 Thread: R'lyeh good edition

Dominions 5 is a strategy game created by 2 Swedish professors, who make games to entertain themselves and their friends, they've been working on Dominions for like 15 years and have steadily updated it as the years have gone by.

The game blends all matter of ancient cultures, and mythologies as each nation's god leads them into a divine apocalyptic war to become the true god, the Pantokrator. There are 8 different types of magic, and hundreds of spells and units to choose from as you battle for supremacy.

The 5th version of the game which has been out since November features a redone blessing system where you can customize the blesses your sacred warriors receive from their god; and real time combat where all the action in a battle happens at once.

8ch has it's own dominions discord which will provide a link at the end of this post, which is mainly used to set up blitz games (quick games) however any new long term games will be mentioned in the thread for any users who don't want to use Discord.

I'm surprised the latter story worked so well for them to quit Warframe in under a week, but they're in their late 20s by now and still subbed to WoW in a recent timeframe. So I have to wonder.

2) There's a few threads that host/hosted servers for games posted in the Server Sticky that might need updated. If anons find any server info that is out of date feel free to report it or post in the meta thread. Server Sticky: >>27332

Other than that if you have any points related to /vg/ ask away. As usual if you have any suggestions, gripes or feel like calling me a cunt for something I may have done wrong use this thread.

PDF + vidya documents + development stories thread

This board is slow enough that a general PDF dumping thread would be useful. I guess it could be cyclic as well if it comes to it. Just keep it related to vidya.

I'll start with Diablo 1's original design document since it was getting discussed over in the Sacred thread. You can really see that they were going for a roguelike type of thing and the other image is from the official strategy guide (which is too large to post and I don't know of a good way to reduce the size of a pdf). Also I love shit like this so if anyone has more or just other good development stories they could probably go ITT as well.

City of Heroes

This is a thread that happens every now and then, but this time, I think the tone is going to be a lot different. We can still mourn the loss of the game, but a bit of hope has come up on the horizon. As the thread name suggests, this is a thread for City of Heroes, a now-defunct MMO that had a somewhat tragic and confusing death some years ago. However, things seem to be changing; there was Titan Icon or whatever which let you create characters years back, and then Paragon Chat which let you explore the game and chat with people or something. Some things went on back when in this thread

>https://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php?topic=9675.0

but from what I've heard from my dad, who played the game from 2004 to the very end, things didn't work out so well for them. Anyways, a new thing called SEGS is in the works, and is mostly why I wanted to make this thread and why I think these threads might have actual people playing video games in them in the future. It's some kind of private server thing that allows you to host private servers and even upload your own content for custom missions and such. It sounds really fun and I can imagine /vg/ having a blast installing various mods and making the game really shine as their own. There's a thread for it here:

>https://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=fquk56piuslm2fn8jcs3fc9a73&topic=12938.0

Anybody else excited for this? I can't wait to play this with people here as this game was probably one of the best MMO's I've played in my life and had a really neat atmosphere and vibe to it, too. I guess we can talk about recent developments in trying to bring the game back and memories of the game as well. I'll be posting whatever else I can find about SEGS, too.

Dreamcast Chart Working Party Thread

Over here in the 6th Gen thread >>49548 someone brought up how this existing chart is pretty crap and had a list of other suggestions, I thought we might as well sit down and make a /vg/ specific chart since it won't take too long. If anyone has any other related charts we can use for inspiration post them by all means.

Before we jump into making it we'll need to decide a few things though:

1. Do we divide it up by genre? If not do we try and include a short description of the game?

2. Do we stick only to exclusives? If not do we mark exclusives out in some way? What about games that are better on another console?

3. Do we go purely by quality or also by 'essentials' i.e. big names? Do we maybe have a section for both?

I'll aim to probably start making it tomorrow night once we've had a chance to talk through all of these points. If this goes well fixing the RTS chart is on the agenda next. Also anyone know if the guy who was making the Dark Mod chart ended up here or is he still back on /v/? I've not seen him post in a while.

Zombie Games: how do we fix them?

Zombie games have never really clicked with me personally since they're usually just a case of fighting mindless repetitive enemies and rehashing locations from whatever popular film you care to mention, really you can argue that as enemies they're one of the laziest possible choices. If the devs bother to give them any variety at all it's usually just slow but horde, fast but weak and maybe a tankier special variant. How do we fix these issues? Perhaps go for non-zombie zombies that have some origin, I know The Last of Us was a typical shit-tier overly-scripted movie-game but it tried that. Alternatively I guess you can go full on fun like Dead Rising.

Westerns

Always been fascinated by this setting and seen the appeal of staging a train robbery. I also like that era for firearms. Considering how many movies and shows that were made I find it surprising there does not seem to be much in the way of vidya related to it. Though that might just be where the region I am at. All I really know of is that Red Dead Redemption which Rockstar will fuck up a sequel to. Call of Juarez which I have not had a chance to play but heard it is very on the rails. Fistful of Frags which the creator sperged out and removed most of the game for no reason. What other games in this setting are there out there and what would anons recommend?

Crytek Thread

Be warned anons, rant ahead

Why is Crytek always so late to the punch and copying what everyone is doing after everyone else has moved onto the next big thing?

Take their latest game for example; Hunt: Showdown, and all the wasted potential that has

>Wild West era bounty hunting game

<Oh shit nigga finally something fresh

>Open world sandbox where you get to work together with a partner!

<Not for all but I'd dig it!

>Bringing down zombies

<Wait what?

>While facing off against competing teams of players in a sandbox open world PvPvE survival game

<Nigga what are you doing? You've just ruined it!

And that sums up Crytek, wasted potential. It's was beat to the mark by Pubg and could have offered us something fresh; who the fuck here would have played a /k/omfy bounty hunting game where you get to work with a partner in the Wild West? I know I fucking would!

This isn't the first time they've done it either. Another example is while everyone shits on rightfully Ryse for being qtevent sim, the gladiator mode for it is a completely different game where you not only need to kill but entertain. So using the right finishing moves, shoving enemies into traps, using the entire environment to your advantage pays off. The game could have screwed the campaign and focused more on the gladiator arena mode and it would have been great. Why are these roaches so fucking retarded yet still alive as a company?

Anyway rant over Crytek thread anons where you can discuss the company, the games, the engine. Give us your best rants.

Star Wars Galaxies

I'm feeling a mighty need to get back into SWG unfortunately I don't have a group to do things with and there are several hurdles to actually getting a group to play with it. SWG basilisk is Pre-CU but most people browsing this thread will probably agree that its development goes at a snails pace (actual years compared to other teams for a release) and there is nothing to goddamn do.

NGE has its own problems in the form of anons refusing to play it out of spite because >NGE

NGE however has JTL with gunboats and a massive amount of content to sift through and turned into a great game by the time SOE was finally forced to drop the game that was still generating them massive revenue so that people would actually play SWOTOR.

The other hurdle is that most of the NGE servers wont allow TenMinuteMail and anons are too lazy to just use mail.com throwaways or something.

If anyone is actually interested in playing, this thread can transition into a proper gameplay discussion. I'm hoping that we might pull in some of the stubborn CU purists for just one shot at this, god knows you can't find anyone to play videogames outside the gamenight on mark's shithouse.

Previous Thread >>26642

Link to all the rips made: https://pastebin.com/TRHTqrN7

Since we now have a understanding of vidya music, I guess we can post music that came from platforms that had games so demo stuff, remixes, vgms, etc. are acceptable. If you compose music on a soundchip, post it if you like to. Rips and Trivia are extremely appreciated, I'll keep looking for it.

To start off, I chose Space Invaders because it is simple yet innovative. The first song since it used a chromatic-like descent and the tense sound of the thud with the music slowly taking form. Inspired a lot of composers to changed ship from movies to games. Music syncs with gameplay and serves as a good cue to the player. What more can you ask?

Deus Ex

Deus Ex

>I haven't played this before, what do I need?

Why the fuck haven't you played it yet you fucking nigger? Regardless you'll want to play the game vanilla/no mods so just install it and go. Try to avoid (more) spoilers about it until you're done.

Optionally if you're on a modern OS e.g. Windows 7 use Deus Exe and the Direct3D 10 renderer (mostly this prevents shadows looking all fucked up but it will also look a little bit better) https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Deus_Ex#Deus_Exe (also see the bit just above it about the better maps)

>I've played it a few times before and want to try it with a mod

I'll run through some of the biggest names (pcgamingwiki also covers these), there are a ton more you can either ask anons ITT for or find yourself

New Vision: most of the games textures remade into HD. Doesn't change the game's artstyle so I can either take it or leave it.

HDTP: replaces models and textures with new ones, new character models are often radically different and clash with existing ones. Don't recommend unless you can remove the cancer.

Shifter: minor gameplay changes for loot, augmentations, enemies. The new unique loot is usually overpowered, the random loot means you can find extra augmentations and weapon upgrades on anyone and the mod gives you fucking XP for kills and stealth so really it fucks up the game and I don't recommend it.

Biomod: shifter but with new features and no XP for kills. Better than Shifter but still not a huge fan of it.

GMDX: probably most fairly described as vanilla+, makes the game a bit harder too. Good for when you've played the base game to death already. Has additional addons available on its moddb page and comes with both New Vision and HDTP already but disables most of the cancer HDTP added (it uses the meshes as a basis for its own work I believe). Far better than the two others I've played (Shifter and Biomod) in my opinion, would largely recommend.

Nihilum: haven't played it but it labels itself as Deus Ex in an 'alternate continuity' so expect major gameplay changes.

Deus Ex: Revision: an entire remake/re-imagining of the game. I've not tried this yet and I've heard mixed things from anons, I think it has a NG+ mode though and the maps have been changed up so there's again content for a veteran player burnt out on the base game.

Malkavian Mod: Deus Ex but insane shitposting, good fun but very short. Also the source of many meme webms.

Unreal Revolution: a mod made to complain about Human Revolution, very short and the moddb page has been deleted. You'd be as well to just look up someone playing it on youtube.

The Nameless Mod: a total conversion with entire storyline replacement, new weapons and so on. Highly recommend.

Invisible War

>Everyone says I should skip this, is that true?

No, it's obviously a massive letdown from the first game both being console focussed at a time when that meant serious trade-offs in gameplay (the levels are all chopped up into little chunks with fucking loading screens) and designed with focus group use (leading to nonsense like the universal ammo) but there's value in playing it at least once if only to make up your own mind on it. In my opinion, loading screens everywhere aside, it's no worse a sequel than Human Revolution and it at least doesn't try and force you down the stealth/non-lethal path. Use this fanpatch (yes apparently the game has fans, who knew?) to run the game properly in widescreen http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=147423

PSA: HooknoseTube no longer works

Not really vidya, but might interest most anons. As you may or may not have noticed HookTube recently stopped working properly. The TLDR is just the creator caving in because of legal threats from Jewgle. There is already a WIP replacement available at (http://invidio.us) that has slightly less features but works similarly to how HookTube used to.

Another alternative is a userscript I created that obtains the direct URL for the video file when you visit a YouTube link, redirects you to it instead and then just plays it in your browser's standard HTML5 player. It should bypass age and country restricted videos but it doesn't work with livestreams and some videos that don't have muxed (audio+video) streams. YouTube also ciphers the signature key needed to access the direct URL for some videos and a temporary solution for now is to redirect to invidio.us and let it decipher the signature and then redirect to the direct video URL. This isn't optimal since it relies on invidio.us staying online. A proper javascript method would be preferred but it will have to do for now.

Some YouTube videos are also "ghost removed" when they get reported for ((( ))) or whatever and the only way to watch them is via dedicated YouTube downloading programs. JDownloader2 works well in my experience. An example of such a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1paYMIKF2Y (Mr Bond - hooknose).

Finally I also made a companion userscript for 8chan that converts all HookTube embeds and links to YouTube instead - see pic related. It also makes it so that when you click on embeds they instead open the YouTube URL in a new tab and then lets the main userscript do its job.

Download:

FuckJewTube (max 720p) - https://vdn.neocities.org/MISC/JS/FuckJewTube.user.js

FuckJewTubeSlowPokeEdition (max 360p) - https://vdn.neocities.org/MISC/JS/FuckJewTubeSlowPokeEdition.user.js

FuckJewTube8chan - https://vdn.neocities.org/MISC/JS/FuckJewTubeRedChannit.user.js

To use them simply get a userscripts addon like Greasemonkey or Tampermonkey (Tampermonkey is recommended since Greasemonkey doesn't support GM_Download) and click on the download links. Obviously don't use both the regular and slowpoke edition together. If you got the older versions without auto-update support, then manually remove the old ones.

Platform/Region differences in vidya

Something that has always fascinated me is platform and region differences in vidya, it's like looking into an alternate universe version of the game. This can go from cutting content because of inferior hardware on one platform to as much as actually having significant gameplay variations or even entirely different games. Obviously you also get regional difference with NTSC games sometimes running at higher framerates than PAL games for compatibility reasons and PAL games featuring tons more languages so sometimes having to save disk space elsewhere. Also (in)famously games for western release being made easier by nip devs.

The Harry Potter games are pretty well known for this. The Philosopher's Stone games for example have:

>PC

Third person action adventure goodness with a pretty different layout of the story from the film/books.

>PSX

Similar gameplay to PC but entirely unique storyline.

>6th Generation (PS2/Gamecube/Xbox)

A gay cashgrab that came out ~2 years later and just reused assets (and the map) from the 6th gen Chamber of Secrets game.

>Game Boy Advance

Top-down puzzle game, apparently, but I don't know much about it.

>Game Boy Color

JRPG-style game that sticks closer to the book and film.

Sadly it seems like this type of thing is mostly on the way out with consoles ending up pretty homogeneous and mostly functioning as locked-down PCs anyway. Nowadays we just get fucking remastered versions of games with dumb additional content which are mostly used to 'reset' sale prices or differing on-disk DLC. The near-death of handhelds hasn't helped with this.

Nipponese Learning Thread: 新しいボード 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

That's what these threads are for aside from the obligatory shitposting. You shouldn't assume that anyone here knows more than you, but there are anons here who are willing to help. Try to find shit out on your own, for fuck's sake, but if you're stumped, then maybe someone will have something to say that can point you in the right direction.

X-com thread/Xcom thread

Greetings commanders, time for an X-com thread

I was going to make a general tactics one but I think we can have a bit more focused discussion.

I started playing again after looking in my games folder and realizing I still haven't beaten X-com again.

I use openXcom for all of the fixes and mods you can get. Speaking of mods there is xpiratez which is set years after earth loses the original battle. The mods getting bloated as fuck and has started doing trivial stuff to waste your time but it does do a bunch of neat shit and it worth checking out.

Finally openapoc is in the works which is open x-com apocalypse. Its chugging right along and if I remember right you could finish the game albeit with bugs.

So how are your bases doing anons?

Mabinogi Private Server: Unlimited Woolworks Update Edition

Mabinogi is a very unique MMO that isn't just another WoW clone. There are no classes, just a bunch of different skill types and you can invest in any of them as you like. This game places a large emphasis on non-combat skills, and has many activities to do besides fighting enemies.

IF YOU DECIED TO PLAY

Be sure to make a human for your first character, even if you don't want to play a human. Humans can travel to the leader of Giants and the leader of Elves to obtain character slots of each, but Giants and Elves can't do this. These extra characters are at least good for extra bank space, and can be used as mules. If you messed up by making a Giant or Elf first, the server's admins should allow up to 3 seperate accounts, in case you wanted to play a different race.

The server website is http://mabinogi.ir/

Here's a list of info for newcomers https://pastebin.com/SUdxeTdf Be sure to read this! It also includes the mml links for music, if you like to doot.

Warframe and it's downfall. Also post lewds, I don't have any

How would /vg/ fix this sorry excuse of a video game?

Assuming that /vg/ could do anything that is, what would it take for this, i don't know what you'd call it, just thing suits it fine for me, what would it take for it to be appealing to you faggots?

Better scaling into the late game? A reason to use half of the weapons aside from progressing through the games strange progression path? since most of the weapons end up being shit once you reach a certain mastery and get access to vastly superior weaponry

A cohesive narrative that doesn't reek of plot holes? A complete ret-con and redo of the War Within? Seriously, I liked the frames better when it wasn't these weird (((gender nondescript))) things mind-jacking them, I felt a sort of mystery about them and what was underneath the HELMETS before the turned into (not stands™) Or just a nuclear approach, tear the whole big bitch down, go back to space ninjas doing space ninja things? ENDING THIS MANDATORY CONTENT GRIND TO GET TO THE GOOD NEW SHIT? LESS JEWISH SORCERY? RIP WAMFLAM? Time to move on?

I got sucked into this game early in its infancy, played easily 500+ hours before it went onto steam and my account says I have 1300+ hours logged on steam, suffice to say, I've been around the block and back when it comes to content droughts and jumping back in.

In the early days, when my clan was active many a hearty kek was had and good times a plenty mowing down brainless mobs in the void farming for the newest prime shit or what have you. But what the game has turned into since then is a far cry from what it once was. And what my group wished it to become.

>TL;DR im getting sick of this shit, what other free games, if you say fortnite I will find you and murder you in your sleep if any exist, are you lot spending time on?

Computer and peripheral maintance

Felt it might be a good idea to have a thread where you share tips and tricks in keeping your rig and devices in working order.

For example when cleaning keyboards I tend to use a thin paintbrush unused for painting of course to go between the keys and clean them. I also find the paintbrush good for cleaning out fans. If you have no paintbrush available a tampon on the end of a screwdriver can work wonders here and also good for cleaning the barrel of your favorite raifu

Once every six months or more I like to open up my computer tower and have a clean inside using a dry cloth and a small low power car hover.

If you are a fag that happens to use a laptop and you will be well aware how bad their build quality is these days so they can sell you useless shit like cooling tables, instead of letting your laptop set fire to whatever is underneath it I suggest propping the back up with a deck of cards. This is because modern laptops just don't get enough air in to the fans and all you need to do is prop them up high enough so they can be fed cool refreshing air.

Black Glasses and the general disregard for movement.

So with all these old games getting "redone" I've been noticing alot of the same sorts of attitude and argument points with people who never really played them when they first came out. And they're usually like.

>20 years ago these new graphics were like this to you.

>Those older games looked like shit.

>These new graphics are amazing how could you even hate them.

And of course and typically dismissive of finer and more important aspects like the way animations feel or how a character moves. So the main issue I find lacking in all of this is the fact that people don't seem to understand games were pretty much a product of their time and their limitations were worked around with via understanding more then just how something looked but rather how something looked on a certain TV. The same can be said of how a character moves, they designed that around the console and the controller as well.

Am I complete bat shit here or does this just doesn't seem as obvious to alot of people?

An exercise investigating the relationship between budget and game quality

Compare and contrast two games. Which of the two do you think is the superior game?

Now, compare the development budgets between the two games. Do you see a pattern? Let's see if we can develop a thesis from this thread.

I'll try to avoid controversy with my starting example.

Final Doom is a better game than Battlefield 4. Battlefield 4 is full of microtransactions, anti-competitive mechanics that favor players who have sunk more time into the game, and bad map design and combat. Final Doom, on the other hand, has some rather clever and thoughtful level design and decent balancing between the various weapon types and enemy classes. Although Final Doom was developed by "TeamTNT", a collective of people on a Doom editor hobbyists mailing list, we also have to consider the sunk cost put into developing the Doom II engine (and thus the resources id Games resources put into both Doom I and II). After taking this into consideration, we still find that Final Doom is a mere trifle compared to Battlefield 4's $100 million development budget.

FPS/RTS Hybrid Thread

A recipie that if you were to put together on paper sounds good but in reality tends to go together like chili and dark chocolate; a very aquired taste that usually only extreme autists like. You'd think this would be kind of hard to fuck up but usually it's down to the playerbase making the games shit. Fags only have to remember (((The Empires Community))) to know what I am on about.

Despite this there are some decent games in the genre out there. All fags have to do is look at games like Battlezone. There's also the various Battlefield games before they went to shit that toyed around with the Commander idea that are fun. While the original Renegade was not an FPS/RTS Hybrid Renegade X got updated to include a Commander.

So the real question I put to fags is what FPS/RTS Hybrids work and when do we play them?

its a reasonably new 4x, that can be best described as a merger from civ and TW

besides that, empire building is rather pleasant, you can some huge cities, and civil trading is one of the most satisfying system ever

and that good and all single player, but the game also features some pretty stable mp, and that's where the fun is at

What kind of weird and retarded games have shown up in our dreams, anon? Last night I dreamed about a Ratchet game without Clank or guns, just Ratchet jumping around brightly padded cubes with fucking Blinx strapped to his back. After that there was some kind of Little Witch Academia RPG where you play as Akko and discover she is successfully impersonated and replaced by a bowl of sentient red porridge.

Elona thread

ITS THAT TIME AGAIN

Yes its time to piss on monsters, start off as a snail, play tag with a catsister, find a living weapon, watch your tactics get nerfed into the ground, watch your archer charge into melee range, and mutate until you die.

>what the fuck is this

A jap roguelike with an overworld and no permadeath, with a bunch of sand box elements, its tough to nail down. Can be played a ton of different ways like being a farmer who grows magic items as well as veggies, a piano player who get rocks thrown at him, be a valiant warrior who breaths fire, be a magical caster and nuke the map killing everything including your pets, be charismatic as fuck and have lots of followers. Expect to get you ass kicked a bit but once you get going its nice.

See end of OP for download

Looks like the most recent is 1.81, get that shit. Elona is a game made by some jap named Noa. Elona plus is a mod of that game made by Ano.

WARNING there has been a lot of nerfs and the adding of a thirst mechanic in the most recent update. There was also a pissing mechanic for doing things like marking your territory and pissing on monsters to make them mad. Hopefully the changes stop after a while.

>Elona custom

see end of OP for download

Will be called 1.81 elona custom, has to match the base you are installing it to, so only elone plus 1.81 will work with elona custom 1.81. INSTALL ME TO THE ELONA DIRECTORY

This brings about some quality of life changes and general improvements to the game as well as letting you customize things like pet AI, teach them skills, makes it easier to feed them, highly recommended. I believe you just extract the game to the elona main folder and launch from the coffee cup icon. Made by some qt named annabannana and more recently taking up the torch a guy named bloodyshade. The version of custom has to match the version of elona plus

>elona Omake

Another offshoot of Elona made by some faggot. Contains adjustment to game difficulty, new npcs, knights of the little girls, CAN BE A LITTLE GIRL, A FUCKING RIVAL, dungeon events like tag and a challenge to kill a monster, alternatively you can tell the challenger to shut up slut, tries to give other npcs a chance to shine, a pudit arena, a new factions feature which ties into NPC appearances, literally an entire page of new shit ,and Imouto apocalypse which is exactly what is sounds like. Highly recommended to give it a try whether you are starting off or have played plus and want something new. A bit more forgiving and tries to move with you instead of throwing you in. It comes in Omake, and Omake overhaul. Overhaul I THINK is the most recent download. Ask in thread if you need help.

Kenshi Thread

I've been debating whether or not to make this thread due to the game being indev but fuck it I kinda want to talk about it.

What is it?

Kenshi is an open ended sandbox game where you can control a squad of guys and try not to starve to death, get killed by bandits, get killed/eaten by wildlife, get eaten by cannibals, get enslaved, or get beaten up and put in jail for being poor.

The games uses swords and crossbows with a jap flair to it. Instead of longswords you get katanas and shit and drink sake.

You can kinda choose how you want to play. Lone warrior with a dog? Group of thieves? Build a base then get kicked out by bandits and taxed by holy nation niggers? Raid old ruins and get one shotted by pissed off robots? There are a few different ways. Its been in dev for a while but the faggot has picked up speed and is rapidly approaching the 1.0. He even got in "luxury" features like dismemberment, robot arms, and crossbows added in a big update. At some point the ability to make your own fullblow faction will come which is sorely needed right now but I have a feeling that will be with the next update with the rest of the map.

My one complaint is that it can get kinda boring without as long term goal, you can build a bit of a settlement right now but without the faction system it still feels a bit off. Good fun for a while though.

I have the gog version but I don't really know where to upload it if an anon has a suggestion.

Don't touch my pom-pom, kupo

aka Final Fantasy thread

Do you think there's ever gonna be a mainline entry in the series past XV at this point? XV was a trashfire but it made money which tells Sqeenix to continue, but they are so creatively bankrupt they had to recobble a pre-existing property to even make XV, meaning they had nothing on their hands prior. Now they have even less, no projects in limbo, nothing. Unless they're gonna turn VII remake into XVI, lol. I find it highly unlikely that SE is capable of creating an entirely original world from scratch anymore, especially since they are bleeding talent. They will doubtless try and milk XV and VII remake for all their worth, but as things stand, dare I say that FF is fucking dead? Remember when they were sure it's gonna get to XX no prob? Good days.

It got me thinking about Confederate vidya where you can beat back the Yankees while flying the proud flag of Dixie.

Thea the Awakening

Have you guys ever played this?

> what is it?

its a kind of strategy rpg, with a 4x similar format in a hex map, it kinda reminds me of HoMM

you gotta a village, you need to do survival and crafting, a handful or more characters

the battle is a card type game, but surprisingly satisfying and well done

however the lore, writing ambience, soundtrack where the best aspects of the game are, its really soothing

Call of Duty/Medal of Honor general

Let's have some CoD discussion because it used to be a decent shooter pushing for authenticity, let's double it to a Medal of Honor thread because they're nearly the same thing.

Also a reminder that Gray Matter interactive, the guys who made UO were what made WaW the last decent game in the series stand out as they got merged in 2005 with Treyarch.

My 3 favorites are probably UO for the great campaign outside the last level on harder difficulties and it's multiplayer and Medal of Honor Airborne for the great production values, good level design and gameplay along with it's top tier art design and Medal of Honor Allied Assault for the same as the last but with even better gameplay.

Escalation 1985

A team of devs are finally making a /k/-tier autism, tacticool Cold War FPS

https://www.escalation1985.com/

Seemingly born out of a Squad mod, a set of devs are actually doing what /k/ / /v/ ideas guys can only dream of.

OVERVIEW

>Escalation 1985 is a stand alone, authentic, online multiplayer first person shooter. Featuring a wide variety of period authentic weapons and vehicles, large maps, and focusing on teamwork, communication, dynamic and emergent gameplay. Escalation 1985 depicts what it would have been like if the cold war had truly gone hot in 1985.

>With the help of the Unreal 4 engine, Escalation 1985 aims for high visual fidelity, using highly detailed and accurate models, and the latest in material, lighting and effects techniques with the aim to bring the player a truly immersive experience.

>The game is centered around mechanised infantry and tanks. These vehicles will transport and spawn players on the battlefield.

>The players are divided in two 50 players team which are again divided into squads lead by Squad Leaders. Tanks are organised into platoons that are led by the Tank Platoon Commanders with each Tank being crewed by a tank commander, driver and gunner.

It has all sorts of radical shit:

>RO2-style grand campaign in multiplayer

>Chemical warfare, you can literally melt a fucker's face off with a full gore system to compliment it

>Tanks with full interiors with "Simulator grade combat"

>Big ol' maps with around 100 players

>Dynamic day/night and weather cycles

>Morale system, can break the enemy's will with bakelite AKs, WMDs, and the NVA's weird-ass 4-finger gloves

>An absolutely bitching Synthwave soundtrack

I watched a dev stream and based on the level of detail he was putting into a singular smoke grenade and how the devs are encouraging their fans to find obscure-ass manuals and pictures on weapons and equipment of the time for reference and rewarding them for it, it's gonna be a /k/ simulator.

It is apparently going to be first released to backers of the game and such this summer so we'll have gameplay then, until then they have a Discord server and regular streams to show off what they're doing.

Monster Hunter general

and other assorted hunting games

WHICH MON HUN DO I START WITH

Depends on which system you have. Everything since Freedom Unite and onwards is good for starting the series. All of them can be emulated depending on how good of a computer you have. Monster Hunter World is a special case where the game is casualized beyond belief and has very little content along with Denuvo on PC and subscription based multiplayer on consoles so choose at your own risk.

No matter which one you start with get ready for a lot of time investment. You'll need to put in hours to get anywhere with hunts taking anywhere from 5 minutes to 30 minutes depending on how good you are.

OTHER ASSORTED HUNTING GAMES

There have been many knock offs in the genre with Monster Hunter itself being a knock off of Phantasy Star Online. Each one differs a lot from each other with most being easier than Monhun.

>Phantasy Star Online

A general for it already exist if you're interested in playing that

>Toukiden

Closest to Monster Hunter in terms of gameplay but with differences like minimal item management and AI partners. Toukiden 2 is notable for being MHW before MHW got released

>God Eater

Anime Monster hunter. Has AI partners and is really easy

>Soul Sacrifice

One of the few neat "clones" destined to rot on Vita. Only similar to monster hunter in the general multiplayer structure

I will probably elaborate further on different monster hunter games later on but I just wanted this first post out of the way.

FAKE NEWS

This just in, IRC has officially reached "peak gay". More and more trannies are ousting themselves for attention, and literal faggots are flaunting about how much cock they suck. This tengu can finally see that there is no hope for Man, for Man was not ready to deal with liberalism. Indeed, even the once mighty teenbro cabal has succumbed to the gay. An involuntary survey conducted confirms that the gay rate in the cabal is at least 56%. The future is a grim one.

Traffic on /jp/ is surprisingly on the rise as threads on /v/ recline further into nothingness. This anal fanatic reporter has come up with two possible causes for this surge in activity. /a/ is either still raiding the war-torn board or the lonely weekly Kamen Rider streams have brought in a record breaking 2 new users. As for the /v/ threads, perhaps it's time to let it die?

A young South American boy continues to amaze local shitposters with his primary skills by virtue of actually playing video games. That's right, a 3rd worlder is better than you Anon. When approached for a comment, the only word I could make out from him was

>wew

This seems to be some kind of universal pickup line, but this tengu does not do kids no matter what local law enforcement would have you believe.

You may hear about another tengu sometime this week. I will deny any allegations in advance that I locked her in my sex dungeon and had my way with her for trying to compete with my friendly local reporting agency. Don't believe her lies, she's a massive slut.

If anyone has a HOT LOAD TIP they want to share with their friendly local reporting agency, this tengu is MORE THAN WILLING to perform sexual favors in exchange for information. INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO: Enema treatments, Anal training, Neg Pozzing, shit eating, and throwing down in the ring. (If you think you can beat me 1, 2, 3.) Find me on Collarspace for more details.

This has been your friendly local reporting tengu, signing off.

Genre Definitions

I am probably not the best anon to sperg about this but here goes nothing.

What defines a genre and the subtle differences between them like what makes an Real Time Tactics game RTT and not Real Time Strategy?

What classifies as an arena shooter? What is even an arena shooter?

These are the sort of questions that have interested me but I have never asked. A lot of the time the definition appears so vague for a lot of categories you could easily label most games as them. I feel in some cases the definition might even be blatantly wrong. Any anons with knowledge on this care to pitch and spoonfeed cause I am confused with a few.

Anti western cosplayers movement fundrising, don't let racist western cosplayers keep ruining Anime!

Don't let racist fail western cosplayers to keep doing racism against us Asians and to keep ruining the Anime characters you love! On secure link http://www.antiwesterncosplayers.asia/2018/02/anti-western-cosplayers-movement.html

Join the anti western cosplayers movement if you don't want :

1. Racist western cosplayers keep doing racism against us Asians. When racist western cosplayers cosplaying our Anime characters are the same as they imitate us Asians because we Asians make our Anime characters based on us Asians which Japanese also agreed with http://www.antiwesterncosplayers.asia/2018/09/japanese-spoken-up-against-racist.html, imitating other race is racism.

2. Racist western cosplayers keep ruining Anime including the Anime characters you love. When racist western cosplayers cosplaying Anime characters they only end up ruining the characters because they look nothing like Anime characters because they are not Asian while Anime characters are based on us Asians http://www.antiwesterncosplayers.asia/2015/10/you-westerners-are-not-cute-too_22.html, millions of Anime fans especially in Japan are hurt by racist western cosplayers.

3. More racist trash such as trump to emerge, one of the effects of the anti western cosplayers movement is to teach westerners youth about how bad racism is so that they will not commit racism in the future.

Only Asians who can Cosplay Anime characters because Anime characters are based on Asians so only Asians who can Cosplay Anime characters without end up as racism and without end up ruining Anime characters which not end up hurting millions of Anime fans :

My favorite http://www.antiwesterncosplayers.asia/2017/12/cosplay-of-month-december-2017-yaya.html

https://image.ibb.co/dfJV5U/Only_Asians_Look_Like_Anime_Characters.jpg

The girl on the right is a real western girl who heavily photoshoped her picture, trying hard to be/look like an Asian girl to match the Anime girl she imitate.

The minimum is 500 yen, 100 yen is around 1 usd and only Asians can participate in the fundrising, if you are not Asian you can still participate on the anti western cosplayers movement by joining the circles https://plus.google.com/117850404800846575560, add more likes on the site http://www.antiwesterncosplayers.asia, etc.

Gamenight: Battlefield 1918

Battlefield 1918 Gamenight: Armistice Centenary Edition

Starting Friday 6pm GMT/1pm EST/11:30pm IST. Server up until Monday.

>Experience the horrors of the Great War

>70+ Maps featuring a variety of nations and a diverse cast of soldiers

>Large number of weapons and vehicles including zeppelins

Download

https://ghostbin.com/paste/myuq8

Installation

1. Unzip or install the base game.

2. Unzip the mod into the Battlefield 1942\Mods\ folder.

How to join

Look for us in the server browser with the mod's icon. If you can't see it in the list use direct connect (Multiplay > Internet > Add Server).

Server: Infinity Gamenight 1918

IP: 140.82.42.110

Port: 14567

Map/Mode Voting

Hold the scoreboard key (tab) and click right mouse button for the cursor. Click lock and then map vote in the bottom right. Cooperative has bots, conquest does not.

Troubleshooting

The server does not authenticate CD keys and will accept CD/Origin versions 1.6, 1.61 and 1.612. If you start getting CD key errors after crashing it's likely the server just thinks you're still connected and you need to wait for it to timeout. Otherwise try your luck with a CD key changer.

If you have crashing on map loading try this special compatibility mode (drag the .sdb onto the included .exe): https://files.catbox.moe/cqysje.7z

This should prevent crashing without causing the other issues present with Win98 compatibility.

Vietnam/Korean War/Cold War vidya

Since Far Cry 5 is getting a shitty Vietnam DLC we should have a threat about actually good games set in the Vietnam War. Might as well also include Korean War and general Cold War games since they're so rare.

I'll start with these two Battlefield games. The first one is basically just a standalone mod for 1942 which was fun but never really worked that well and is probably one of the most commonly forgotten Battlefield games along with that cops and robbers one. The second one is an expansion for Bad Company 2, it was ok but still had unlock system cancer and was held back by frostite which is one of the most overrated engines in history.

FPS games with base defense

What are some good games where one/each team has a base to defend? Bonus points if it's hard/rare to launch a full assault into or is very well guarded. A lot of the time these types of gamemodes/maps end up as stalemates, but those rare occasions where you break into the enemies base and start kicking their ass on their own turf in an uphill battle has always been ultra-satisfying.

In the fourth pic there's not really much to explain, I just wander around that place that I scribbled. I still remember it well enough to make a recreation of it, but it would take a little more effort than the other two so I haven't gotten around to it. I don't know why my brain loves making things look like Sauerbraten so much, I don't really play it often.

The Movies

Anyone remember The Movies? It's a surprisingly fun tycoon-style game where unsurprisingly you make movies made by the highly inconsistent Lionhead Studios. Weirdly you get to go from the really early days of film right through to near-future no ability to accept extra money to agenda-push with your films though so it's not 100% realistic.

Games where you can just fuck around and ignore the main story

My favorite part of Arx was the atmosphere and just screwing around with all the little interactions, like making bread and hanging around in the towns. When it started ramping up the combat though I lost interest pretty quickly. Ironically the parts with little-no combat where the best.

Are there any other games that do a really good job of this?

Licensed games

What are some good licensed games? What made them good? Did the owner of the franchise just pull the right strings like Disney's deal with Capcom, or did some unknown developer pull it off? Interestingly Shadowrun, Star Wars, True Lies, and Super Smash TV were made by the same people as those shitty Back to the Future games. According to one of the devs they got dicked around a lot by management which probably explains why they were hit and miss. What are some more cases like this? What about games that were ruined by corporate meddling? also, post unholy abominations like the last pic

WoW Private Server thread: Spreg free edition

SERVER DESCRIPTION

>When does it launch?

March 31st

>What it is?

Brand new vanilla WoW private server administered by Twinstar

>Who are they?

Here's a list of people of importance for Twinstar. I don't know any of them enough to see red flags or not, so someone better mention it if they do. They have five different servers that range from vanilla to Cata. They appear to have originated from Central Europe, probably Czechoslovakia.

http://archive.is/fwUnK

>Are they good?

The earliest announcement I found from their site is here: https://www.twinstar.cz/2011/11/10/if-tsdev-count-10-twinstar-cool-yourmoney/?lang=en , which would mean they've around for at least seven years, if not more. They appear to be well received by the general private server community.

>What will get me b&?

http://www.kronos-wow.com/project-kronos-rules/

While these are for the standard Kronos server, they will probably be the same or similar for Kronos III.

Horde Guild so far is <Infinity>.

Gamenight: Halo Custom Edition

WHAT IS HALO CUSTOM EDITION?

HCE (Not to be confused with the PC version of Combat evolved, which is typically called HPC) is a stand alone version of Halo PC that supports custom content. Released by Gearbox, HCE boasts not only custom multiplayer content but singleplayer.

SETTING UP

Download either link below, keep in mind the torrent lacks maps and shit like chimera, eax sound enabled and other things. HAC2 is already packaged with both versions

Torrent :http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/10173195/Halo_CE_%5BCustom_Edition%5D_1.10_Patched

Mega :

To get around mega's shitty limits and to not have to use the browser plugin in any way, go here:

https://megatools.megous.com/

>Download the desired build

>Extract to it's own folder

>Locate cmd.exe on your computer

>Copy and paste it into the megatools folder

>Run that cmd.exe

>Type "megadl <link>"

>To paste a link into cmd right click and hit paste, do not try Crtl+V it won't work.

DDL SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS

To reduce file size I compressed the maps folder before packaging everything in the easy to digest 5 gig download. Before running HCE make sure you extract the maps.7z folder. just right click the archive and hit "extract here" as it's already in a maps folder and running "extract to 'maps'" would create a maps within a maps folder and Halo will obviously fail to run.

=FIXES, IMPROVEMENTS, AND ENHANCERS=

Disabling mouse acceleration is the only thing not packed into either downloads. If your text box in game is blank (does not show All- or Team-) nor can you see any kill text; refer to the chat fix link, or enable custom chat by enabling console and typing "custom_chat 1". This need only be run once to turn on forever. Torrent version lacks EAX sound and chimera.

SETTING FOV

When in game hit F6 and adjust by moving your mouse. Hit F6 again to set it

OR

Open console and type "fov #", with # being the desired FoV

HOW/WHEN TO CONNECT

Go to multiplayer and join via direct connect.

Motivating words to get through backlog

I'm probably not the only one with a backlog of games that I know I'll most likely enjoy but for some reason can't get into.

What if we post some of those games and then fans of the games could give some motivating words to the other anons?

>S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

Universally praised and has to me an interesting setting. I've even gone so far as to get basic mods (such as ZRP and some graphic shit) and set everything up for SoC to be playable.

Don't know what's holding me back

>Witcher

I've really tried to get into the first one, eventually I've realized that it's the delayed action controls that throw me off. I can take archaic and at times clunky controls (my favourite game of all time is Gothic 2) and I can take combat that is slow and deliberate, but The Witcher 1 just feels like it has a disgusting input delay.

After that I've attempted to get into 2 and whilst I enjoy the controls and combat in that, I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of story and lore by skipping so much and and eventually that is what ends up turning me off the game.

<Feel free to just mention some games in your own backlog even if you can't help me with mine.

Gaming responsibly in the current year

How do you guys manage your gaming habit as a non-NEET adult? How much time do you spend on vidya, and when? How do you discover new games?

To get things started, here's my situation:

As a kid I got into games around 95, during if not the golden age then silver age of gaming. I would just play any game I could get my hands on. I could basically play vidya all day every day, after I came home from school. Even in school I'd basically think about vidya most of the time.

Nowadays work just takes too much time. All the adult chores that my parents used to do for me take a lot of free time. A lot of my downtime is an hour there, two hours here, so too short to really enjoy a game. I also try to have hobbies besides vidya which makes my schedule even messier. When I sit down for a game it takes me 0.5-1 h to really get my mind into the game's context, so if I've done that I like to play for at least a few hours. It's hard to enjoy very short (<2 hr) sessions, at least with games I play.

I end up just going on a multi-day vidya binge once every few weeks, which I think is a bit unhealthy. I like playing games and I wouldn't want to not do it, I'd just prefer to spread it out more evenly throughout my week/month instead of having to do the binge/fast cycles. But that's where I have trouble.

As I said, it's hard for me to enjoy a short game session. However, if I fall into a routine of playing so many hours every so many days, that can change: For instance at some point I'd play a certain number of Tribes: Ascend and call it a day, every day. That worked well, over time my mind got better at "warming up" faster and I could enjoy the short session also. But the problem starts when I want to switch games. Also a lot of online games are very difficult, since you can't make any real progress in so little time.

Discovering new games is a pain in the ass. With journos utterly cucked, forums gone to complete shit, friends with decent taste all moved away and lost touch, most stores flooded with shovelware, I just have no reliable, efficient method. I basically lurk boards like /v/ and /vg/, and play the Youtube related videos roulette when watching gameplay vids or new trailer compilations. But this takes a lot of time, and even with this method, most games I hear about are not worth checking out, of the ones that make it to my backlog I end up playing and enjoying maybe a fifth of them.

Even picking something from my backlog is torture. I've been completely ignoring professional games media since 00's because you didn't really need GamerGate to see the clear drop in quality around then. Not having my mind polluted by corporate shills is nice, but now I have no way of getting hyped about a game. My backlog is basically a FIFO list. I add games to it because they seem exciting, but by the time I rotate around to them it's been months or years and who knows if I even remember why I though I should play them in the first place. I don't really feel like writing long previews for myself about each game either. Right now I'm experimenting with brief, <1 sentence blurbs about why each item on the backlog is there, but it's only working okay.

I miss the simplicity of coming home and deciding to play game X because everybody at school was talking about it at every recess, and I read some game mag in most of the classes, so I already built myself up and knew what I was in the mood for. Maybe I should utilize my time at work to research games on my phone, but both of my methods (8ch and youtube) are not very suitable for doing at work (too many interruptions, yt drains battery, 8ch would require me to use a proxy). It's a bit ironic, young me would have loved having a smartphone and browsing vidya shit all day at school, but now that current me has that there's hardly anything worth browsing.

Fix shitty vidya

ITT: Post a game, what you dislike about it, and how you'd fix it.

>Terraria

>All sorts of earlygame stuff that's really cool, like throwing knives, grenades, various explosives, magic, etc

>Can't get summons until midgame at best unless you farm them

>Lategame (hard mode) is all about grinding. Want a weapon that cheese the next boss? Better kill the previous boss 10 times for crafting materials

I feel like they could fix it by having several different progression paths that don't just converge. Do more with each area at different points in the game. Sure, the jungle is supposed to be a pre-dungeon area, but why not have some content you can do on the surface as you start?

Bloodstained

So all these kikestarted nostalgia revival project are shitting the bed so far, do you think Igarashi can actually do it? I'm of two minds about it, on one hand it looks pretty good but on the other it's not so much a "spiritual successor" to SotN as much as a carbon copy; more akin to those 3D remakes of classic games for DS and shit. I would much rather see Igarashi make something more original, but I suppose copying good games from previous generations adequately is the best we can expect from modern gaming and it fails even at that.

This thread is just going to be a one time thing, in order to get the attention of anyone interested and give them time to play and get used to the game and also to establish the /vg/ guilds for both factions. After this thread dies, all discussion will be move to the warhammer general threads, so that way we don't clog up the catalog.

Download:

https://www.returnofreckoning.com/join.php

Just follow the steps, the devs provide a torrent and a regular download. The game should work (almost) flawlessly as it is actively being worked on, but if there are any questions, feel free to ask ITT.

Where are the guilds?

Sadly, we need to have a full party of 6 players first, in order to make a fucking guild (see guild creation image). So we'll try to achieve this goal on Thursday or Friday, at around 6pm UTC, almost like a gamenight but not really, we don't expect the guild(s) to be active constantly, but it gives anons an option to play together if they're bored.

To be made guild names:

Destruction:

"Vidya Gitz"

Order:

"The ELF Community?" or "Happy Merchants".

Feel free to suggest other names for the guilds, as I am not very creative.

Go ahead and join whichever faction you prefer, you have 20 character slots so you can play around with them and see which playstyle suits you best, or have a character so you can join both sides. Don't forget to check and rebind your controls just incase they don't sit well with you.

3. If the game won't launch set the game's .exe to compatibility mode for Windows 98/ME and to run as admin.

Let it Die Thread

LID is an ultraviolent F2P roguelite 3rd person action grindan game made by Suda51s Grasshopper Manifacture of Killer 7 fame, featuring soles inspired combat focused around gear durability management and the cheapest, most infuriating deaths in the industry. It started off as a PS4 exclusive I believe but it got released on steam recentely.

Game is riding all the way on its AESTHETICS and the music is great, but the tilesets are gonna get kinda samey after a while since theres a lot of reskinning going on. The combat is on the slower side but theres a lot of variety in weapons: buzzsaws, irons and firework launchers etc. alongside snooper and salt ruffles in the late game.

Theres a multiplayer mode where you can gank unsuspecting polans bases while they are busy grindan and in turn recreate "Poor Little White Guy" starring Yourself once the game decides you had enough winning and moved you up a couple slots on the ladder.

As to the game constantly goading you into buying premium currency that can give you a continue, death means jack shit in this game considering you can just pay ingame currency to revive your dead fighter with everything he had on him including cash he farmed during the run in your base. The only legit use for premium currency is expanding your storage and you get enough for that from login rewards, quests and the occasional network bitchfight.

TL;DR: its fun for at least a while, play while its fun and drop it when it isnt, its free as in free beer.

Take Two granted permission to search the homes of Australians accused of making cheats

The publisher of video game Grand Theft Auto V has been granted the right to search the homes of five people accused of making cheat software.

The court order allowed Rockstar Games and its parent company, Take-Two Interactive, to search two properties in Melbourne, Australia, for evidence related to a cheat known as Infamous. The Australian federal court has also frozen the assets of the five, who have not yet filed a defence. The cheat went offline six months ago. It allowed players who paid about $40 (£30) to manipulate the gaming environment, generate virtual currency and use a "god mode" feature that makes players invincible.

Tech news site Motherboard said using the cheat software "undermines enjoyment for users playing fairly in online modes". Under the court order, the five people, named as Christopher Anderson, Cyrus Lesser, Sfinktah, Koroush Anderson and Koroush Jeddian, are prevented from creating or using game cheats. And they are allowed to withdraw only money for modest living expenses from their frozen accounts. According to technology news site Torrent Freak, which first reported the story, it is the first time such tactics have been used.

Editor-in-chief Ernesto van der Sar told the BBC: "The search and freezing order go beyond what I've ever seen in any cheating related cases. "It shows that the copyright holders and the court take this issue rather seriously." "Many cheaters may believe that it's a relatively harmless activity - but they ruin the fun for legitimate players. "Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive Software are targeting the alleged developers of these cheats, who often sell and profit from their software." The BBC has contacted Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive but has not received a response to date.

Edgy or dumb concept games

So I was digging around and found out that picrelated is a game, apparently some sort of Syndicate clone or something, and I got to thinking: what are some other games that have retarded concepts or are just plain old edgy for the sake of edgy? If possible stick to games like Hatred that aren't exactly self-aware enough to pull it off. Also has anyone actually played Gender Wars?

Hatred by the way is a lot better if you get a colour mod and optionally either a first person mod or a third person mod. I know it was an artistic decision to go black and white but it makes the game a fucking hassle to play because it all blurs into a mass.

Very intrested in how CDPR is going to be implementing these classes into the game. Expectially interested in the Media Class.

The Panzerboy name has an intresting back story:

Exerpt from Wiki:

"The term comes from the period following the end of World War One. The Belgians raised tariffs on cheaper Dutch dairy products. To counter this, smugglers would drive trucks loaded with milk, cheese and eggs over the border to sell to the Belgians, where those foods were more expensive. Gangsters started hijacking the shipments, so the drivers started modifying their trucks into armored cars called "Panzers" (tanks). The smugglers began to be called "Panzerboys".

I used to have a love/hate relationship with it, first I was really into it, then thought it beneath me and now I'm rediscovering it again. The only problem is, getting to run these games on a modern pc is a nightmare, a very few gotten a console release but that's about it.

New trailers/gameplay videos

Post and discuss new trailers/gameplay videos in this thread. Only post trailers/gameplay videos themself, not shitty reaction videos. Check >>66294 for making jewtube more bearable.

I'll kick this off with a bunch new videos from TGS 2018 starting with Left Alive gameplay in embed related (the new Front Mission spin-off). The small amount of Wanzer gameplay looked alright, but the on foot gameplay looked like another mediocre third person shooter and they didn't show any infantry vs Wanzers. Still would prefer a new proper entry in the series over another action spin-off.

Unlikable characters: the game 1&2

Is there a particular reason why almost every party member in both of these games is either huge cunt or dipshit or lying asshole?

The only tolerable characters I can think of are

>HK-47, because classic black humour

>T3, because he's not even a character and therefore isn't annoying

>Visas, because anime murderous waifu archetype

I decided to replay Kotor 2 today, this time with a bunch of mods, because I've only played vanilla and was interested in restored content for a while, and in the first hour I'm assaulted with insufferable old bitch and retarded han solo wannabe that can only crack shitty jokes and be annoying.

Yes I know that one is retired sith lord and another is jedi hunter, I've played this shit through once, but still I fucking hate these people. It reminds me why I played both games only with droid companions.

I need help to fix some fucking tedious lag/stutter.

This is the problem:

Whenever i play a game, there are always those fucking stutters that - as i noticed - occur when a certain sound is being loaded in, meaning that the game freezes for about 3 seconds.

For example, I'm playing F.E.A.R currently and everything runs smooth and fine. But when i proceed in the game and maybe some scary Alma scene is popping up, the game first freezes 3 seconds and then continues, completely ruining the immersion. It also stutters when the background music transitions.

It has do to something with the sound, this especially has been obvious to me when i played Vampire masquerade (that shit and other source games lag the MOST). When i approached an NPC and he was about to make his usual speech once the player gets to close to him, it first froze for 3-4 seconds before it continued again.

I played vampire the masquerade once with my sound card disabled and it ran smooth and fine.

So the problem definitely lies within the sound region but i just can't find a way to fix it, without turning my sound card off.

I should add here, that sometimes a game like Vampire:M all of a sudden doesn't stutter and it loads everything fine. Some games also stutter much more than others, Darkwood is horrific for example.

My specs are:

Intel Core i5-2430M

AMD Radeon HD6650M with 1GB Vram

4 GB DDR3

It's a laptop btw.

Remakes vs reboots: the good, the bad and the jewish

Since REmake 2 is apparently coming out I thought it would be a good time for a general discussion about remakes. What makes a good remake, what makes a bad one and is a good remake better than a good reboot assuming such a thing can exist or vice versa? Personally I'm fine with a remake that stays relatively close to the original as long as it doesn't try to erase the original from existence by e.g. dropping it from sale to charge for the remake like with Metro 2033 Redux. Bionic Commando for example is a great example of both a good remake (Rearmed) and then a year later a questionable reboot (2009), the former retains the feeling of the original NES game also autistically duplicated the gameplay feel while giving you better graphics etc. I liked the new soundtrack and all but I do wish you could just toggle between it and remastered versions of the original tracks. 2009 on the other hand does have a lot of fun gameplay mechanics and really did give you a fair bit of freedom in the arenas but it also has repetitive shootouts towards the end, the dumbest fucking plot 'twist' imaginable and a terrible ending QTE that's fucked on PC. That said the game is damn pretty as well and some of those early levels really do work. I've not tried Rearmed 2 yet since it's exclusive to consoles.

Both by the way were made by Grin, a pretty interesting developer who also made the surprisingly fun Wanted: Weapons of Fate tie-in game. After Grin died the developers mostly fucked off and became Overkill the jews behind the Payday games.

/alg/ - Azur Lane General

Anyone here into Azur Lane? It's a shipgrill game for phones. It's about a year, to a year-and-a-half old (depending if you are going by the age of Chinese or Japanese serbs) since it first came out and it's taken off like a rocket. Figure it might be worth a thread here.

Anon, phone games are shit. Why are you posting this here?

1) It's a rare phone game with actual gameplay. It's a combination of a horizontal shoot 'em up and an RPG. Choosing what ships you take along on what map, even ship formation placement, is actually important when you get to advanced stages. As the game progresses you'll have to learn how to dodge danmaku patterns (or kit up for tanking them). It's pretty fun.

2) It's an Asian phone game with surprisingly little offensive grind or obscene "pay money to do anything interesting" setups. You can certainly do either of those if you want, but it's embarrassingly simple for even new players to get tons of free ships through casual play (and even more if you put effort into it). Also unlike other games, instead of having a 0.000001% chance of getting a decent character/ship, it's pretty easy to get whatever you want. All in-game resources are handed out like candy, too. Basically if you spend any money on Azur Lane for any reason (other than to buy animated Live 2D lewd and/or cute skins for your girls, or maybe expand dock size so you can fit in all your shipgirls if you are playing "catch 'em all" style) you are either desperate for a particular shipgirl or you are incapable of playing any games well at all.

3) Interesting story/setting, whether you like it or not is a different matter since even the Japanese/Chinese need diagrams to figure out what the hell is going on. Bounces between a reenactment of WW2, strange anomalies in time and space involving mechanical squidgirls and samsara and magical trees and shit, and SoL stuff on base which chronicles all the mentally-ill autistic crap your roster goes through on a daily basis. Additionally, characters from other anime IPs occasionally invade, usually due to the time-and-dimension bullshit.

4) The game is in English and is readily available in Western app stores, if you are lazy as shit. However the English version is the worst version because it's a year behind the Asian servers and even worse is populated by Redditors. Also the English script was apparently translated by the guy who did Zero Wing back in the day, so it makes less sense than just trying to run a OCR program on the Japanese text and then throwing the result into Google Translate. Even if the OCR gets half the characters wrong. You can however easily install the Japanese version, which is the best version, on your phone at any time with a little effort. Or on your PC, using the Nox emulator because Bluestacks is trash. The devs don't give a shit if you play it on an emulator at all, BTW.

5) Huge ship selection, most of them with famous VAs. In the few months its been out it's gone from zero ships to over 300, with more and more released each month. Tons of US, UK, Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan ships. And now the Allied and the Nazi French are being released. At this rate there will be 450-500 ships by the end of the year. Not even talking about ship retrofits which make them kill people more easily.

If this goes somewhere then maybe someday in the future there will be a proper orderly OP, in the meantime accept these basic links.

Handhelds Thread

It seems like just a few years ago faggots were claiming smartphones were going to kill handhelds but not only are they still going strong but we've seen the Switch come out as basically being a handheld with docking capability and (((Valve)))'s planned Smach thing which seems to be a similar concept. Both of these got me wondering if maybe now that mainline consoles no longer have a niche if handhelds will be the way all the big manufacturers will go: things like inferior hardware really don't matter as much in such a specialized package.

w§w general

Warsow (sow as in pig) is a free cel-shaded Quake II total conversion mod, although it feels closer to CPMA in terms of physics. It's like your run of the mill arena fps with one very important distinction.

You can wall jump.

What this means is that you can fly all over the fucking place without losing the momentum you normally would by having to turn sharp corners, or even 180. There are a variety a gamemodes, the most popular being duel and clan arena. Race (defrag clone) was another fun one that unfortunately suffered a brutal death a few years ago. Overall it's a bretty fun game and objectively takes more skill to play than Xonotic.

Anyone ever try going back to 4:3

I'm starting to believe 16:9 killed vertical level design, at least for first person games.

One of the hardest things I had to adjust to when using a CRT was the 4:3 aspect ratio. My eyes kept darting off screen and it was annoying as fuck. However, once I got use to it I started to notice the image on screen came together much better. I started have more awareness of how the level was laid out vertically. Even details in the ceiling such as rafters, ventilation, holes in the roof, tress in the distance, the skybox, etc stood out.

Any other anon's experience this or am I just on crazy pills.

ITT: Edgelords you actually like

It was nice that even the psychotic, bloodthirsty wookie had something of an actual personality and code behind what he does. A lot of characters of his have some generic "thrill of the hunt" and "muh people's honor" thing going on but Hanharr's character actually explored why someone would think like that or at least the thought processes they'd have to employ to rationalize their inherent psychotic bloodlust. To say nothing of how such thinking has left him broken, miserable, and mentally weak.

Was fallout even good?

Were the first 2 Fallouts even good back then? the first one was a bug ridden wreck wich also had a bug that couldnt let you enter into the cathedral to finish the game, the combat systems is designed for medieval fantasy (AC makes no sense whe it's mixed whit evasion and damage reduction) and it's just RNG, it worked well on the first one because the world had easy areas for starters and harder areas for the late game but the second game it's all over the place whit the geckos and the maraduers. People play it and like the games today because most of the stuff has been fixed but back then they releaed broken games whit broken quests, also since Fallout 2 dialogs and events have a way too much pop-culture references to please the "nerds" it barely feels like an improvement.

Capcom greenlights live-action Mooger Meng film

STRAP YOUR HELMETS ON TIGHT, IT'S TIME TO RIDE THE TARD TRAIN

http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/english/news/html/e181004.html

"The feature film, tentatively titled MEGA MAN, will be written and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, and is scheduled to be distributed by 20th Century Fox. Chernin Entertainment, responsible for the Planet of the Apes series, will be producing it with Masi Oka, of Heroes fame. Based on the influential and globally beloved Mega Man franchise, Capcom aims to appeal to a diverse audience, including not only game players but action movie fans as well, with an adaptation that maintains the world of the Mega Man games, while incorporating the grand production and entertainment value that Hollywood movies are known for."

This had better be a glorious fucking trainwreck.

Staffordshire University now offering degrees in e-sports

Esports is big business, with the global economy forecast by analysts to reach $900m (£685m) by the end of the year. Riding the wave of this rapidly expanding industry is Staffordshire University, which has just begun teaching undergraduate and masters courses in the subject.

But who is studying for these degrees and what can they expect to take from them? "Since my thumbs could work a Gameboy, I was hooked - that was what got me into gaming," says Stuart Kosters, who helped to launch the university's new undergraduate course, and is lecturing on it. The course, which costs £9,250 a year, will focus on the business of esports, teaching students how to host and promote events, create businesses and build online communities. Mr Kosters, 30, who is himself studying for a masters, started running an esports society during his undergraduate degree in computer games design.

"With esports, I've always played games, always been interested in business and it is good to combine them," he says. "In college, I was studying game design and I picked up my first esport, League of Legends [a team-orientated strategy game], which really hooked me. "I went to a League of Legends competition, sat in the arena with all the other fans and thought: 'This is real, this is as big as any sport out there.' "The atmosphere was incredible; for people who don't generally do something like watch sport, it captured the most passionate audience."

While studying for his MA, Mr Kosters has been exploring the economics of competitive gaming, what makes it the success it is and how it will change in the future. This, along with his involvement in the esports society, helped provide the inspiration for a dedicated course.A big part of the three-year degree will be events organisation, with students expected to hold a large-scale expo in their third year.

One of the students who has just started the course, Danielle Morgan, believes it is a great time to embark on an esports degree. "For me, gaming is about bringing people together, aside from the competitive aspect, and a lot of this course is about organising these big events," she says. "If you look back 10 years ago not many people were doing a computing degree and now everyone's got a computing degree. The industry is rapidly growing and it is going to be the same. "Already there is so much money in esports and it is about getting into it at the right time. Being able to do this course is definitely such a massive opportunity. "There's a lot of misconceptions; obviously people think you are going to be playing games for three years but in actual fact the course is like a business degree but it is in a new industry. "Give it five or 10 years a lot of people will have heard of it and it won't be so alien."

Mega Man thread

11 came out today. I beat it in one sitting and I actually really enjoyed it; I was expecting it to be mediocre and jank but it was actually a blast. I was a little disappointed Proto Man wasn't in it, but I guess it'll make his appearance in a future game more cool. Gameplay was fast and fun and the levels were actually designed around using the gears, so they didn't feel like some kind of tacked on ezmode mechanic. I think I'll go for a second playthrough at some point because it was pretty good. It's a shorter game at about 4 hours long, but it has good replayability and I plan on going back and playing it again at some point. I'm happy I bit the bullet and decided to buy it.

Anyways, played any Mega Man games lately? Anything neat you found about the franchise you'd like to chat about? Did you LIGHT UP THE NIGHT?

Global Agenda

A game that set out to create an MMO TPS hybrid, and was successful in my opinion. I loved the game, one of the only MMO's i've enjoyed. Ultimately it was abandoned by HIRez for Tribes:Ascend(also good) and the ASSFAGGOTS smite.My favorite class was recon, and I usually played PVE.

Jurassic Park/World General

So, the Planet Coaster/Elite Dangerous devs, Frontier Developments are releasing a Jurassic Park Operation Genesis spiritual successor called Jurassic World Evolution.

What is it?

It's a Dinosaur Theme Park Builder with the Jurassic Park/World license and it's looking fucking great, like an actual improvement over the 2004 Operation Genesis.

They just released some direct gameplay footage today and it settled something I was afraid they would remove that made OPG stand out, direct control of Ranger/Security Units.

They aren't cutting any corners and aside from some grass pop in the whole game looks absolutely amazing, I dreamed about something like this for nearly 14 years, I'm so glad it came to fruition.

sorry for gushing, I lowered my expectations but they're really nailing it

Talk about other Jurassic Park/Dinosaur games as well, Rampage Edition and Zoo Tycoon 2 were some of my favorites.

Valve release modified Play on Linux

So I know (((Valve))) aren't to be trusted but them providing an easy way for normalfags to play vidya on Linux is just about the one hope we've got for getting them away from Microsoft's monopoly. Also it looks like their modified version of Wine is available for use outside of Steam on github so that's good https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton/

>In 2010, we announced Steam Play: a way for Steam users to access Windows, Mac and Linux versions of Steam games with a single purchase. More than 3000 of the games that have been added to Steam after that point have included Linux support, with more titles being added every day. Since then, we've continued to look for ways to make more titles easily accessible to Linux users.

>So, two years ago, we started an effort to improve the quality and performance of Windows compatibility solutions for Steam games. A lot of our work has been in the form of supporting Wine[www.winehq.org] and other existing compatibility projects. We have also been integrating these tools into the Steam client to provide the same simple plug-and-play experience offered by regular Linux games.

>Our goal for this work is to let Linux Steam users enjoy easy access to a larger back catalog. We think it will also allow future developers to easily leverage their work from other platforms to target Linux. This would give them the option of focusing on areas that would make a meaningful experience difference for all users instead, such as supporting Vulkan[www.khronos.org].

>As a result of this work, today we are releasing the Beta of a new and improved version of Steam Play to all Linux users! It includes a modified distribution of Wine, called Proton, to provide compatibility with Windows game titles. Here are some of the improvements it brings to the table:

< - Windows games with no Linux version currently available can now be installed and run directly from the Linux Steam client, complete with native Steamworks and OpenVR support.

< - DirectX 11 and 12 implementations are now based on Vulkan, resulting in improved game compatibility and reduced performance impact.

< - Fullscreen support has been improved: fullscreen games will be seamlessly stretched to the desired display without interfering with the native monitor resolution or requiring the use of a virtual desktop.

< - Improved game controller support: games will automatically recognize all controllers supported by Steam. Expect more out-of-the-box controller compatibility than even the original version of the game.

< - Performance for multi-threaded games has been greatly improved compared to vanilla Wine.
