Games that never got a true sequel but deserved one

Guild wars 1 was a MMORPG released around the same time WoW was. It used hub towns with instant locations and was built around parties of 8 people (with decent AI for solo players).

The core gameplay was skill based where you had to buy or harvest skills from enemies to make builds able to deal with different areas. This meant you couldn't just DPS your way through the game, you had to think about what you were doing. It was just the right balance of difficult but with options to overcome that difficulty. 2 expansions added 2 new classes each and the final one added just end level content and new skills. Leveling capped at 20 and you could switch skills in town at any time and reassign stat points the same way.

What happened? Well fuck you WoW did better so they shit canned the entire game and made WoW with midget races using fixed skill trees.

There's basically nothing like Guild wars 1 on the market. It stands as a unique game that's still running today with fans wanting more like it but never getting it.

Whats your game that truly shone but got shit canned for a generic sequel?

Team Fortress 2 Vintage: TF2V


>2007-2010 modes allow for a true Vintage experience (and also deprecate TF2007 in the process)

>Community voting abilities enabled alongside even more configurations allowing TF2V to cater to a wide audience

>New gameplay models added for casual, hardcore and even e-sport leagues to set server rules

>Ultiduo confirmed for working on TF2V (which means by extension the other competitive TF2 gamemodes will as well)

Other news

>New UI and startup icon coming in next update

>BLU flamethrower no longer Canadian

>Bunch of other team fixes for weapons

>New Server builds in the works, making it even easier to host your own TF2V server

>TF2V vs TF2C friendlies cancelled for the foreseeable future

Flight Vidya Thread

Time to get this started.


In Acefag news Ace Combat Infinity shutdown recently and there seems to be a hint of a remastered collection coming.

IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad released Battle of Kuban last month to skub tier applause. IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover looks like it got a remaster not that nobody seemed to notice nor care.

DCS world looks like it's getting the F-14 in game soon.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X updated the Spitfire model so better spend those shekels goyim :^)


Unfortunately don't have anything really in the way of downloads for anons to enjoy at present, but hopefully that will change soon.

All I can recommend is Ysflight, a flight sim made by an Autistic Nip Student that is pretty easy to get into. Loads of addons as well, could easily recreate the plane scene in game.

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.

>MW4M with a fuckload of new content. Was originally hosted by Mektek and going to get a mega expansion till PGI cried "OY VEY! SHUT IT DOWN!" so now it is hard to come by. Got a decent branching campaign where you play as a Merc and run your own unit.

Mechwarrior Living Legends:


>Mod for Crysis where the devs went on to be hired by Crytek themselves and create the Cryengine 3. Focuses on Battletech Combined Arms, not just Mechs. PGI insisted on them being shut down cause it was better than their crappy F2P game. Dead for a bit before drunken Slavs took over and decided to continue work on the game. Now standalone.

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.

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.

WoW Private Server thread: Spreg free edition


>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.


>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&?


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>.

>What about a VOIP?

New Steam Chat Beta - Dickscord BTFO By Steam?



Steam Update Page:


>Valve has announced Steam Chat, which upgrades the ability for users to converse with their friends while playing games on Steam.

>Performing similarly to Discord, this platform aims to let users compile a friends list that shows what games everyone is playing. Group chats may be formed, which open up conversations with features including the sending of text messages, pictures, videos, tweets, and voice calls.

>These features will be built not only in the Steam client but also on the Steam website, meaning users may continue conversations even after having logged out of their Steam client.

So once this chat update hits, will the tencent botnet finally fucking die? It would be rendered super pointless considering steam's chat will probably be better, comfortable to use and without the need to download extra shit to play or chat with people. Only people that would be left using discord are lefties. :^)

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.

Half Life 1, Half Life 2 and genres

So two subjects here:

Firstly Half Life 1: I recently replayed this and while it's a solid shooter I really found myself tiring of it halfway through. There were many times I'd walk into an area or room I'd previously forgotten about or had at the back of my mind which I suddenly remembered was fucking boring. In fact I'd go as far as saying Half Life 1 is a game where the majority of it is forgettable and (badly paced though Valve never could into pacing). Actually this doesn't just apply to vidya: the bulk of TNG's episodes are unremarkable filler but it's great episodes are top-tier such that in hindsight it's often viewed as the best Trek because the bulk of it is forgotten about. Also the Marine AI isn't actually that impressive once you work out all their actions deeper than 'run towards player and shoot the nig' are scripted/baked into the map.

Secondly Half Life 2. Now obviously there's a solid contingent of anons out there who dislike Half Life 2 and justifiably so: it's excessively easy, poorly paced of course that's also a problem with 1 in my opinion, reliant on sometimes gimmicky tech and has terrible gunplay. However underneath all that there's still something that seems compelling about the game and if anything non-FPS players seem to like it more.

What I'm getting at here is that theory that sometimes shows up that Half Life 2 should be classified as an Action-Adventure in first person rather than an FPS. When you think about it if you took it and took the perspective out to third person this would be an obvious classification to make but what do other anons think?

< chink mutually assured peasant mass slaughtering

>what is this?

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

its traditional civ like strategy with better army features, everything you do in turn is planned and played out simultaneously at end of turn

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

>muh shill hurr durr

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.

4X Thread

4X is simultaneously the comfiest and most addictive of genres . Now we can discuss all day which is the best even though it's obviously picrelated but there's a more interesting debate: turn based or real time?

My vote goes for turn based since the real time games I'm most familiar with are either too heavy on the micromanagement or play too slowly to be worth having in real time at all (Sins of a Solar Empire is a good example of that).

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

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.

Discontinued Game Mechanics

I'm playing through DMC HD Collection and while playing DMC 1 and 2 I noticed some cool things that don't show up in newer Devil May Cry games.

DMC1, the Red Orbs are actually scarce enough to care about. While 3 and 4, Red Orbs just don't seem to matter as much. I guess it's the combination of the threat enemies pose compared to a Dante that isn't overpowered and not being able to farm a previous mission.

DMC2. I thought the amulets modifying Devil Triggers were cool, though the rest of the game was bad in terms of level design and combat. The upgrades in the later games only increase the Devil Trigger gauge.

It's not uncommon for Devil May Cry players to ask for a fully unlocked saves, but I think in turn it's ignoring and dumbing down a part of the game, even if it's secondary to the combat.

Anyone else getting a similar situation in other games?

Escalation 1985

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


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


>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.

Cyberpunk 2077

Apparently it's going to be at E3.

CD-Projeckt says it's going to be third person with first person elements, but an RPG first and foremost.

Hopefully that means it's not going to be some cover based dreck like Nu-Deus Ex.

Apparently, they've put up job positions for "Large Crowds of NPCs" in the past (Pic Related)

I also heard that the game is basically going to feature unique bandit factions in the form of distinctive gangs that you can join/and do quests for.

Triple S League described it as "Being able to go up to the Clown Gang and getting a unique quest chain for them and possibly befriending them afterwards."

Also interesting is the game is going to have different career paths your character can take as roles.

>Cop (police)

>Max Tac Police (augmented SWAT police)

>Corporate (businessmen)

>Netrunner (Le epic hackerman)

>Nomad (basically mad max biker gangs)

>Fixer (Smuggler, info broker)

>Rockerboy (80's style rockstar that plays like a bard class)

>Solo (Mercenary)

>Techie (Technician, robotics, hardware)

>Panzerboy (Pilot, has a neat WW1 reference)

>Media (Player takes on role as freelance journalist, able to uncover large scale conspiracies)

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".

Morality in video games

>Good guy option

>Bad guy option

>Neutral option

>Sarcastic liberal humour option

Now that this shit is basically the only games they make how do you fix it? What sort of topics do you think could make good ethical situations and explore the pros and cones of complicated ideas?

I would suggest slavery. It's a topic no one will willingly touch due to the 56%ers knee jerk reaction to it. But it's not a black and white case, it has a real purpose and moral grey areas you can play with.

If you use slaves to put the other slavers out of business then set all of the slaves free now you own them is that good or bad? What if one guy treats his slaves extremely well and they want to continue working for him?

Are there any morality topics you don't think games could do? Are there flaws in the medium which make it difficult or impossible to give an accurate portrayal of some topics? Are games able to address topics at all or is the ability for a player to jump and spin around on the spot like a retard during any dramatic moments just too much of a handicap to make it a serious story medium?

I remember a part early on where there was a cave you had to destroy to stop respawning monsters and the cave itself had regenerating health. At this point the tedium mounted and I gave up. Glad I didn't dump 10 dollars into this garbage fire. Hopefully in the future it's updated to not be shit.



Basically, it's PUBG meets battlefield 1942 (minus the planes). The assets are mostly shit but the gunplay is fairly satisfying. You can craft structures, vehicles and assorted parts here and there. There's a layer of grinding on top of the crafting which will basically require you eat shit and harvest lots of resources to start having fun. On the flip side you can also just run around and kill shit.

My biggest gripe with this thing is there's lots of nothing happening for most of a match. Ocassionally you'll be in "the spot" where you get 5 or 6 kills in a row if not more or you'll be killed by someone you can't see who's hold' up in some tower in a village you're trying to loot. Often you'll be frustrated not by the combat but by a lack of direction in the match. This could be solved with some map overlays and simple objective to direct clueless players as to what to do.

>"Harvest stone to make an x"

>"Capture the thing to make a y"

That or have a commander player who can do supply drops and other support actions decided by a vote and let them give genreal commands to other players to give some "flow" to the game. As it is right now most people run around randomly crafting whatever they want and building autism walls.

If I had a dedicated group of shitbirds I might try to get people on so we all could pile into a rape truck and drive directly into the enemy's base camp. I'll wait for a few more patches for some bugs to be sorted out and hopefully some more gameplay enhancements.

Mabinogi Private Server: Come and be comfy with us!

>What is this all about?

Mabinogi is one of those few MMOs that did it right by not following in WoW's footsteps. This private server is a version of that game before Nexon came in and fucked that all up. Here is just some of what this game has to offer:

>not tab-target combat

>almost RPS-like skills.

<normal attack beats smash

<smash beats defense

<defense laughs at attacks that aren't smash

<counter beats both normal and smash attacks, but is vulnerable to every other offence

>comfy exists; amount of "life skills" rivals the amount of "combat skills"

>get to play an instrument

>get to literally compose the music you play. your ears perk up when you hear someone playing a tune you recognize on a lute/mandolin/ukelele/flute

>if you win a fashion contest, you get a statue of you in town square

>build campfire, if you are sitting at it, and others are siting around it too, you can share your food with them, LIKE AN ACTUAL PARTY OF ADVENTURERS SHOULD

>if you're a skilled chef, your meals give buffs, so sit around that campfire and eat with your bros

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

These links contain useful information about this MMO






https://mabiproguide.wordpress.com/resources/ (approved mods)



http://mabination.com/archive/index.php/t-33569.html (growing a spirit weapon)

This might not be an approved mod, but it'll help you locate metallurgy spots


it goes in data\gfx\fx\effect make new folders if they aren't already there


This removes the auto production limit for life skills

Just place in data\db

Some things to be aware of when playing on this server:

>The wiki mentions something, but I can't seem to find/do it.

The wiki is up-to-date for the official Mabinogi Servers. This server is very behind in terms of content. The wiki is still largely useful; you get the best information by setting its history date to March 2011, or as close to there as you can get. That will give you proper quest details and skill information, though some esoteric information may differ due to the server version being JP instead of NA. You may want to read the Japanese wiki instead, and there are still some discrepancies from this server having changes made.

>which race should I play?

any is fine, including elven scum, but make a human to start out. A human can travel to a leader of the other races for an extra character slot of that race, but you can't get a human character if you start out with a giant or elf. It's useful as a mule if you don't want to play a human.

Dissapointment thread.

What are some games that absolutely dissapointed you, almost to the point of demoralizing you from playing video games? I'm not just talking about modern releases or sequels to a game you love that you were excited about. I'm talking about a single title or a specific series of games that's held in very high regard by the majority thats been recommended to you over and over again and when you finally sit down and play, it you find it difficult to do so either because of how it aged, of the controls, of its aethetics or design and it ultimately doesn't sit well with you.

For me, I'll name 2 of the many dissapointments I've had:

>Thief Gold

I recognize that it is a shining example of the stealth genre but that didn't help me when I played it. Even though I was super excited to finally sit down and play it, I gradually started hating it as I went on and stopped in the middle of that one level with the back and forth in the sewers. I've learned that everyone hates that level and I should've skipped it, but at that point I was pretty done with the game. The way it played and controlled felt archaic and had a very tough time adjusting it them. The lighting made it very difficult considering everything looked dark as shit, I get it's kinda the point but there were times where I couldn't fucking see where I was going or had trouble hiding because that specific shadow I was sitting on wasn't dark enough. The setting, at the beginning, was very interesting but it kinda lost me when the zombies and ghosts became a thing. Stealing from that cult was fine but the undead really took me out of the immersion (I hate saying it, but it validates my point)

I made the initial mistake of not playing it with all the patches and fixes because I wasn't aware of such things, I would've installed them from the start much like any sane person, would do with VTMB. This being said, I might revisit Thief with the patches and then continue the series and knock them off my backlog, though my inital experience left a sour taste in my mouth.

Spec Ops: The Line

So inspired somewhat by the recent giveaway of Heart of Darkness: The Vidya Spec Ops: The Line I thought we could try having a constructive thread on the topic. It's fair to say the game has caused some pretty mixed reactions among anons. For some its a terrible third person shooter with pretentious writing I broadly agree with that sentiment myself while for others its an interesting meta-commentary on its genre and the general industry.

Basically I think we can break this down by rating the games in three ways:

1. How it plays as a third person shooter (gameplay)

2. Its qualities in terms of writing/setting/adaptation of its source material played straight

3. How it ranks as a meta-level product that's about the genre and industry as a whole which may or may not have been largely an after-the-fact excuse the devs came up with for it being a bit crap to actually play

Let's try and keep things a bit more details than just 'it's shit', this thread should not be a hugbox because fuck knows I don't think it's that good a game but it's always interesting to hear why others like it so much. I'll follow this post up with my thoughts on each of the three categories in a second.

Principles in game purchases

Where do you draw the line with principles in purchasing games and ethics in games you decide to sink time into? I struggle with this a lot as I don't want to support companies I despise that routinely fuck their customers over. The problem I have is that I can't enjoy any ARPG besides Diablo 3. People say it's shit and that games like PoE are better but I can't see it myself. For me it's the only ARPG that feels satisfying to sit down and grind away in. I run into the same issue with things like "vanilla" WoW. People will often dismiss this with "it's shit anyways just dont play it", but the reality is that these are some of the only games I can enjoy playing anymore. I hate blizzard and don't want to give them my money for vanilla WoW, and I don't want to add another player online tally to Diablo 3, but lately I find myself only longing for these games.

Is it wrong to play games you fundamentally enjoy from companies you despise?

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

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.

Blockchain Games General

We have entered a new era of gaming! I don't know if it will be good, or if it will be bad, but so far so good. At first there were just simple "hotpotato" gambling games that honestly I can't stand It's so much lazier than any real form of gambling. and then came things like cryptohorses and games that remind me of shit like neopets… and now it looks like we're back to browser based strategy like CryptoRome which honestly has peaked my nostalgia. The next gen is bringing in RPGs and MMORTS like CryptoDungeons and CryptoBarons respectively.

>what does blockchain add to gaming?

There are two things that I've noticed. One, it's now easier than ever to fund a game, easier than even with kickstarter. Two, it's allowing developers to create game-assets (items, horses, cities, anything really) that can be used in multiple games. CryptoRome is already doing it with CryptoHorses where the special WarHorses on cryptohorses add tangible bennefits to your troops in CryptoRome.

<they fun?

So far I'm mostly playing CryptoRome but they only have part of the game up so far, pretty much a teaser. I have a city, it grows grapes, and I can sell those to speculators who are currently paying ETH for the grapes… Ridiculously, I've already made about $250 in ETH playing this one. part was from the bounty contests. They were giving away villages and even eth for a meme contest. CryptoBarons is doing a meme contest right now too.

Rare willing to License IP's to other developers


>Rare studio head Craig Duncan had some interesting things to say about how the company handles its legacy IP. His statements make it look as if other companies could potentially work with those brands to bring them back to gamers today.

>Rare has this 32-year back catalog of heritage and IP, and while I wouldn't say we were Disney or even Nintendo or SEGA or any of the other kind of long-term IP stalwarts in our business, people ask us to use stuff. It's absolutely not out of the realm of possibility, but not only does the 'why' have to be right, but the team, and the people, and 'who' have to be right." Rare is the guardian of Rare's IP. Who knows what the future holds?"

The future of gaming

I'm curious what you guys think the future of gaming will be. It's clear at the moment we're in poz city, pozland, and it's not looking any better in the near future. Instead of making games they're making "experiences". Where you hold forward to watch cut scenes happen around you.

I watched a GDC concept art video. All they do these days is take stock photos and photos from real places and use them. Everything design wise is simply sketching over real things. Maybe even don't sketch just put a filter over it so it doesn't look quite so real. The guy even said there's no point learning anatomy any more, it's a useless skill when you can just use 3D models for everything and kitbash what you can't make yourself out of other people's work. And this is the top of the industry not plebs on the lower levels. Game design now values being able to Google and lie more than artistic talent.

The retro scene has been completely taken over by speed running autists. Any sort of retro discussion now seems to devolve into how fast you can play Mario 64. and just as they started to burn out here comes the Randomizers to make the autism flow like spice. Anything on any system but Nintendo or SEGA has been memory holed. European gaming culture no longer exists in the history books because the big youtubers always talk about the American Atari crash. The high point of micro computing in europe doesn't exist.

And then we get to the community. You can't piss without hitting a trannie in gaming these days. From the new battle tech, to the former decent reviewers becoming trannies to straight up gaming companies sponsoring gay pride events. Want to see a game before you buy it? Go to Twitch, enjoy the IRL streams and LGBfaggots community. Better hope you enjoy watching webcams because you sure as shit ain't finding just a pure gameplay stream these days. DICKSNIFFER1994 JUST DONATED! WUB WUB WUB MARVELMOVIE.gif

The online services are unusable. Steams front page is recommending me monster dating sims where you get to pick your pronouns. All I play is ultra violent FPS games. I've never touched a goddamn dating sim and yet this is what it recommends me. If it's not Triple A and paid for to trend (don't believe it's organic, it's not) then it's a pile of complete shit no one is going to buy any way.Stores aren't even laid out by gaming genre just generic "adventure" "action" lists and tags are wildly inaccurate. I saw Tekken 7 listed as an old world game, Tekken.

Multiplayer games have become nothing but MOBAs or multiplayer walking simulators where one of the players gets to be the monster. Long gone are the days of run and gun, fast paced skill intensive games. Now it's Hit your Ult to get an aimbot or hope 1 of your 4 random team mates doesn't fuck up and put you in an unwinnable 25 minute match. I never thought I would miss the days of little kids calling me a faggot on Xbox live but at least there were games to play then.

Single player? Hope you liked fully voiced dating sims and cut scenes because you sure as fuck aren't going on any adventures any more. Need to get that female market by turning all the stories soft and avoiding conflict unless it makes them feel like strong empowered women. No strong men any more though, just WHACKY OVER THE TOP ZANY FUN! Hey did you see the new SPACE ZOMBIE PENGUINS DLC?

Grindy unlocks you can pay to unlock faster. End of story.

I think this gives a reasonable estimate of the gaming landscape right now. Where do you see it going? Will the normalfags and degenerates back off or is gaming now the new TV and it's fucked until a new technology replaces it?

Nintendo President Steps Down

Nintendo’s president steps down as the Switch is revealed to be turning a profit.

>It’s no secret that the Nintendo Switch has been selling incredibly well under President Tatsumi Kimishima’s watch, with confirmation that the console is now turning a huge profit for the company. The time has come for Kimishima to step down, however, passing the baton to The Pokémon Company’s Shuntaro Furukawa.

>Tatsumi Kimishima, 68, has been with the company for almost 30 years in total, working his way from The Pokémon Company’s Chief Financial Officer in 2000, to President of Nintendo of America in 2002. He stepped up as Nintendo’s fifth President in the wake of Satoru Iwata’s tragic early death, being the shortest-serving CEO in the company’s 128-year history.

>Despite his age, Kimishima’s talents for business were imperative for stabilising the company’s footing in hardware sales, which had previously crashed due to the poor sales of the Wii U. Kimishima’s pivotal role in establishing the Nintendo Switch as a success story has paved the way for younger, newer talent to assume the role without complication, to which Kimishima believes will help better understand the company’s customers.

>As Shuntaro Furukawa, 46, steps into his new role in June, he will be able to enjoy the Nintendo Switch’s 17.79 million sales that has already eclipsed the Wii U’s 5 million and the original 10 million sale goal. This had driven profits up a whopping 500 percent, after Nintendo has been slumping year-on-year, making 178bn yen ($1.62bn) in operating profit for its 2017 fiscal year.

So what I'm guessing here is they put the old guy in charge to cover the risky Switch launch since he's old enough to have simply retired without losing face if it went tits up and now they're bringing in a younger man so he can hand around for a good few years while being credited with the success.

There's a pretty major security flaw in 7-Zip right now (lets people potentially install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights though I suspect it's mostly a Windows issue) and an update was released right at the end of April to fix it, the program generally won't update itself automatically so I thought I'd warn you fags since so many of us are likely using it.

Alternative to Steam Workshop pops up

https://mod.io/ is made by the guys behind modDB. It's basically steam workshop except not tied to steam or a different store.

I've already seen cases where a game released on both steam and GOG have different features, DRM-free users gettin the short end of the stick in most cases, as Steam has the larger userbase. And even if the devs take the time to use GOG galaxy linux users would still be fucked due to it not being yet ported for that platform (and then where do you leave itch users?).

I've been worried about a "soft" lock-in for a while, where you won't have stuff available because you bought it on x instead of y. For example, I think some workshop items can be downloaded without owning the game in steam, but a lot don't allow that, so this is good news if it takes off with devs, but right now it is in early access. They have an unity, UE, lumberyard and gamemaker plugin in the making, but the SDK is already available.

As I understand, games that implement it won't have the users requiring an external client, they'd be able to search, install and upload from within the game itself, and the service is free. Thus far there are only 3 games listed on their site (which makes sense considering it's a new initiative): 0A.D., ECO, and Sinespace.

This brings about some quality of life changes and general improvements to the game as well as letting you customize things like pet AI, and 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

>what the fuck is this

A jap roguelike with an overworld and no permadeath, with a bunch of sand box elements, its though 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.

Can be a bit grind heavy once you get settled though. Join in on the fun!

Path of Exile

Love it or hate it, Path of Exile attracts a lot of people looking to satisfy their ARPG itch, mainly because it's free to play and it's microtransactions are limited to cosmetics and extra storage. But that may change now that Tencent has majority ownership of GGG.

GGG seems to think they'll remain an independently-run company that'll just have to report financials to Tencent from here on out and that development of the game won't be affected by this.


Personally, I think the statement from the GGG devs is either impossibly optimistic or a scripted response. Tencent tends to ruin whatever they touch and I don't believe for a second that PoE will be the exception.

It makes me sad barely anyone I know remembers this game expect how you fags keep jacking off over it. I could have sworn it sold extremely well.

Next Quake Wars Enemy Territory seriously this game was SUPER overlooked when it came out the maps were crafted to promote teamplay and had their own objectives made just for the map so it did not feel like it was tacked on. You could even call in artillery placements or radar arrays to help your team. Even both factions felt different/refreshing to play as and not a reskin with different guns. Quake Wars is also way better than Wolf ET in my own opinion since a lot of the base maps in Wolf ET suck major ass

Apple depreciating OpenGL

Since no one is using their crappy Metal rendering API, Apple has announced they're depreciating their OpenGL support and will probably remove it completely from a future macOS release. This will basically make Macs even more useless for gaming than they already are and break every non-Metal macOS game ever released (aka almost all of them).

Why the fuck do people still play video games on Macs?

FOSS Video Game Modding

Does anything else wish this was a major thing?

To think about it, this solves a couple of issues.

>old games having buggy patches on top of buggy patches

>no way to improve such buggy patches

>patches/fixes/modding effort "tops out" and ceases near entirely

>trying to improve upon currently available patches/fixes/mods or combination of will involve doing everything again from scratch

>GNU GPL license states the source code must be open, and user has the right to study and sell the work either modified or unmodified, but the source code must remain available and distributed with the work itself.

>users and other modders retain full incentive to build upon the work

With this idea, if FOSS licenses were more common among video game modding communities, how would Valve and Bethesda's move to commercialize mods play out differently?

I think most software corporations avoid FOSS licenses like a disease. Even if it were legal for re-uploaders to sell, the right for everyone to sell would mean a lot of competition. The ones actively developing a version of the mod having the best version.

Sacred autism

Oh boy, this is gonna take a while.


>what is the purpose of all this

To get Sacred 2 up and running with community patch/HD textures/physics/no crashes all together.

>isn't there a repack I can just DL and install?

Maybe? I've only found Russian one. If you want magnet for that I'll post it.

>will it work on Steam/Gog/Physical/Repack version?

Yes! Shit works on everything as long as it is updated to the 2.65.2 version

>Will it make Sacred 2 not shit?

That's the purpose of all this. Game gets rebalanced, gets a whole bunch of new content, better looks, better optimization, better everything. If you hated Sacred 2 on launch, you might like it now. It's not a brand new game though, so don't expect 180 turn.

>I have 144+ hz monitor, can I play at more than 60 fps

Yes! Uncheck vsync and set game to windowed mode, then use something like borderless window gaming program to run at uncapped framerate. It doesn't affect gameplay negatively, unless fps fluctuations fuck with you personally. Then probably lock it at 60.

>I'd rather discuss Sacred 1/3/Citadel/Mobile

You're welcome to do this ITT.

>How big the game will be in the end?

26.9 GB

>That's a big game

For 2007


1. Get Sacred 2 Gold. You can buy it on Steam/Gog or pirate it.

Magnet for gog version:


2. Get elite textures. This is optional, but we're in 2018 and game is 10 years old. You want this.


There alternative sources for it around, look it up if you don't want to use google drive or it gets removed.

3.Get trimmed elite textures. It fixes crashing/freezing issue because game's own engine can't process so much textures. This is mandatory if you're bothering with elite textures in the first place. Otherwise game will crash no matter what you do.


4. Get community patch 0160 hotfix


Again there are other links if you look for them

5. Get Mod enabler


This shit is optional, but it saves you the trouble of making back up files manually

6. Get Original Physics file

You're supposed to do it yourself, but I did this for you. This only works with 0160/elite textures combo. Otherwise don't bother with it


7. Optional mods.

You can get all of this on nexus or someplace else, as well as a whole bunch of other shit. I just give you my personal selection based on my impeccable taste.

>Better grass

It makes grass less bright. Not compatible with elite textures. You can still have both, but turn normal texture quality on for this to work.


>Better fonts

Bigger more readable fonts. They do sometimes leak out of their designated windows, so if that bothers you don't use it.


>Nude mod

Boobies! Not compatible with elite textures. You can still have both, but turn normal texture quality on for this to work.


>Interface skins

Lets you choose any of the legacy interface color palettes game went through. My personal favourite is pre-0160 CM one.



1. Install game

2. Install elite textures

3. Install community patch

4. Install generic mod enabler

5. Put your mods, including trimmed textures, into mod folder

6. Enable mods in ME. Order of mods doesn't matter UNLESS they interfere with each other. Shit like nude mod and better grass mod doesn't work with HD textures, but you can still have both, just not at the same time.

That should be it, unless I forgot anything. I'm currently working on making grass mod to be compatible with elite textures. I'll post the results.

Unique games for the jaded gamer

We're all played the big genres now, even the niche genres but what about those one of a kind series?

Games like Metal Gear Acid. A TBS with a randomized deck defining what actions you can take each turn. Each card has a cost to use and you don't get another turn until you hit 0 cost again. This mixed with Metal Gear stealth makes for a pretty unique experience I haven't seen on any other platform.

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.

Goys for Windows Live

I promised a rant thread about this a few days ago. I guess it's time I delivered even if this is a somewhat short one.

Now PC vidya has it's share of DRM out there, quite a lot of cancerous, some of it masquerading as vidya stores and even social media. However none has had such a well deserved shit reputation as GFWL, especially for killing games. Now why rant about shit you already know? Because Microshits never learned from their history and are trying the same shit all over again with the Windows 10 Store. While some devs were smart enough to remove the cancer, there was some good games ruined by GFWL that we will never ever have the cancer removed from. Games like:

>Battlestations Pacific

Know how that World of Warshits took off? Well this is a much better game that would be a viable alternative. Not only does GFWL kill any potential multiplayer but stops you saving your progress, and there is no viable way round this. Bet the devs of this are kicking themselves in the foot right about now?

>Fallout 3

Yeah sure, NuVegas is better. It has some good Slavmods though. This is worth a rant cause a lot of problems with the game especially saving issues was down to GFWL. Might see a theme here.


/o/fags will get bitter about this although Kikemasters may be just as at fault here. Yeah GFWL and securom means nobody can play this ever again.

>Grand Theft Auto IV

This one funny enough still works although imagine a world where you could be forced to go bowling with your cousin without dealing with lots of bullshit? Well fuck you.

>Legend of Galactic Heroes

Oh yeah there was a Legend of Galactic game. Too bad it was locked behind GFWL. Yeah fuck you, nothing nice for you.

>Lost Planet 2

Radical adventures that are denied cause of GFWL. This one perhaps hurts the most and if it wasn't for the feels I'd have made a Lost Planet thread.

>Section 8

If this game was on anything but GFWL I can guarantee you it would have became a full on cult classic. In fact probably would have been a gamenight with anons. It was a good shooter just let down for being on the shittiest DRM.

>Universe at War: Earth Assault

Another game that would have been a cult classic and had more success if it wasn't fucked over by GFWL. It was actually a good RTS that did it's own thing. Shame cause the devs were retarded enough to let themselves get cucked by Microsoft they are now reduced to producing shit.

This is just a few of the games fucked cause of GFWL. There was several devs that came to realize how much of a massive piece of shit GFWL was and got rid of it but in many cases it came far too late. There really hasn't been a single piece of shit that has caused instant death for so many games in recent memory than GFWL, but what is said kikes never learn and they are going to try and go for round two. Be warned anons, there was a reason they were pushing hard for Windows 10 and DirectX12 which laughably failed, thank fuck

Looking for a non dead class based shooters

As the title says, I have a growing urge to play a good class based shooter since it's been a while a game in that genre has hooked me. I'll say that when I say class based shooter I have a somewhat broad definition of it as I also include "hero shooters" (which is just a bastard variation of the genre) and FPS/RTS hybrids that let you control various ground (i.e. non vehicle) units.

The last one that somewhat kept me interested was Dirty Bomb and I stopped playing that a while ago (played from beta release to I think a one/two months after Spark was released). I usually played Sawbonez but I have to say that there was some good fun to be had back then when nobody noticed yet how fun it was to be chucking sticky bombs left and right and you could surprise people at close range with a cheeky minigun as Rhino. Anyway, if anyone has a good class based shooter that's not dead I'd gladly hear your suggestions, and since it might interest other people I'll give a non exhaustive list.

Of course, I don't think there's any need to mention the obvious ones like TF2, Overtrash, Battlefield, etc. If possible, I'd like to know any game in this genre you know of regardless if you think the game is bad or not.

>Natural Selection (1 and 2)

Assymetrical FPS/RTS hybrid, Marines versus Ayyliums with tech trees (team progress) and gear purchase/mutations (individual progress). Natural Selection 1 is a Half-Life mod and is dead, Natural Selection 2 has a small community of dedicated autists and is, to my knowledge, pretty much dying.

>Ballistic Overkill

Standalone and shiny version of a bad facebook game, there is no support class and the game is incredibly unbalanced with low TTK, average netcode, broken weapons/classes. Surprisingly the game has a small dedicated community and is less dead that other games in the genre, the playerbase is probably dwindling though. Try it if you're desperate but I had a bad experience.

>Angels Fall First

I hesitated as putting this as class based as you basically "create" your class by using loadout points to outfit your character but the scope of the game is surprisingly big. There's two big game modes, ground maps which are basically what you'd expect from Battlefield or whatever. The other game mode is in space, each team has a battleship that can be boarded and there's also dogfights happening outside. It's hovering between dead and somewhat dead during the week, it's more alive the weekend. There's bots and it's also still in early access.


From what I understand the core gameplay is basically Project Reality, I haven't played it however so I'd like to know any opinions as I am interested in it. I heard that the game has engine problems relating to the scale they're aiming for. Also, how is the ttk ? I assume it's pretty low.

I probably forgot a lot that I played over the years but it's just get the ball rolling. The ones I forgot are probably almost all dead anyway (Monday Night Combat, ETQW, …).

Edit: Removed question mark in subject on OP's behalf.

This board is a reaction towards the direction that /v/ has been heading lately, that being into a "No Fun Allowed" with mods and Mark deleting shit constantly, its a dice roll as to if your thread is actually going to stay up or not. It turns /v/ stagnant and boring to browse and participate in.

The goal with /2v/ is to have completely open and censor-free. I won't delete any posts that don't violate the rules, that means you can post ==BING BING WAHOOS== to your hearts content.

>Will /2v/ be successful

I highly doubt it, most replacement boards fail within the week and /2v/ is mostly based around the current state of /v/. If /v/ finally becomes a good place to post, then /2v/'s purpose is done

Game Night: Garry's Mod

Garry's mod is a great game to dick around in. You don't need to forward ports, you don't often need to download to much, and it's an easy way to have people doing whatever they want. Everyone seems to have it - or they've at least played it. If anything, it's pretty cheap otherwise. It's a tiny download, and the addons are heavier than the game.

So, let's play some Gaymod. I've got a little plan for what we'd be doing, and getting into the game/server isn't hard one bit. The collection we'll be using is simple - but a teensy bit heavy. Things like Wiremod are going to be left out to prevent too much cancer.

The listen (p2p) server will be hosted at, on Saturday (tomorow), starting at Noon PST. Nothing major is going to start until around 5PM, but people should be around to build shit, watch shit, shoot shit, drive shit, fly shit.


This is the collection. To make sure you've downloaded absolutely everything 100% correctly, restart Gmod twice after downloading. Subscribe to everything. Having Counterstrike will help with errors and missing textures, but most of the content should be self contained. Nothing should require ep2. If it does - I'll see missing textures/errors.

>hur hur im still seeing errors

Download the content. That's it. Your model/texture detail should be set to high. Some things just require it.

>hur hur i have too many addons

Go to your subscribed addons, and click unsubscribe from all. Then, completely delete your Gmod installation folder. All of it. 100%. This makes it so that you have a perfect, clean install. No fuckups. Then, just subscribe to the pack. This ASSURES that you have NOTHING but the server's content. If you still have errors - man - it works on my machine.

If you don't have CS:S for some reason, the content CAN be acquired somewhat easily for free on the workshop (Find it yourself,) or through this website. It's greasy, but it does work. Just drop the folder into your addons folder. http://kajar9.wixsite.com/cscheater2/downloads

There are some good maps for shooting shit, both eachother and NPCs. They're not great, but some classics include edgy columbine, apartment defense, and shit like that. The minigame helper addon will help us do cool shit. This is the weakest portion, but we're still going to do some of it. Cw2.0/FA:S is too heavy, so we're going to be using M9K. There's bound to be a gun you like in there, somewhere.

There are even more top-tier maps for exploration, they're a little barren in my opinion, usually being too closed-off for building anything other than decorations, but they're still really fun to people who haven't seen them. Nipper.

>ree whats going to stop someone from doing dumb shit

Honestly? Nothing. If I have to ban someone, it's probably their fault. Rules should be minimal, and that's how this'll go down. If someone asks you to leave them alone, just leave them alone. Don't brick people's shit. If you think you might not make friends doing a thing - don't do the thing. Rules don't apply to anyone who isn't from the bread. All forms of cancer are 100% beaned.

The only "dumb" rules I have to bring up are also common sense. Don't spam shit. Don't try to crash the server, try not to make a million addon requests "because its so guddd!!!", and have fun.

That's what we're here for. It's why we play vidya. Fun.

Games where Singleplayer was ruined by Multiplayer

pic unrelated

This is just a rant about a few games where retarded devs that focus on "Muh Multiplayer" above all else trashed the game and made it unplayable particularly in Single Player.

Games like:

Battlefleet Gothic Armada

>Devs get hard on for keeping an inherently broken PvP mode alive that unless they redesign will never be fixed

>Constantly making sweeping "balance" changes which can only be described as nerf the current meta faction into being unplayable

>Still never address real issue making their Multiplayer imbalanced e.g. max level ships costing same to field as level 1 ships

>Over time start taking features and abilities out of the game like taunt

>Neglect that said abilities were downright essential to complete the Campaign in certain missions meaning completing them is more down to luck than skill

>The Multiplayer eventually dies, all their attempts at flogging a dead horse has failed and in the end they've left their Single Player mode a broken unplayable mess

Company of Heroes 2

>Push hard Multiplayer from start

>Spend absolutely no fucking time on AI whatsoever

>AI in the end cheats like a motherfucker and dosen't play by the same rules as you such as seeing through Fog of War and even knowing where Stealth units are

>This in turn automatically makes about two thirds of your units useless outside of heavily scripted missions

>Most of the Single Player content transforms into a boring slog where you have to cheese the same handful of unit types to win since there is no point using anything else

>Add on top of this a lot of Multiplayer balance changes having a massive impact on how your units play and are fielded means that some missions become ridiculous and retarded to play cause certain units that were considered "fodder" units for you to overcome become a bunch of T-800 Terminators in all but name that can wipe out half your army cause the counter-unit you are supposed to use is not available to you at this stage

>Devs to this day wonder why their Single Player content was not well received or liked

I would add Wargame to this list but that's just a case of the devs not giving a single fuck about the Single Player rather than Multiplayer ruining the game.

Any games anons that you would care to rant about?

Tomb Raider

Was Tomb Raider ever actually "good"? I've only played 2 and 3 (PC) and have always thought they've got some pretty serious problems: a) the obsession with realistic movement to the point where the game wants to waste your time with slow climbing and block pushing and b) the almost complete lack of risk-reward mechanics due to an abusive save-reload system. The games as I've played them are not unlike modern frustration platformers in that they're all about figuring out the one thing you need to do to clear an obstacle, with no real punishment for failure due to infinite retries via saves, and thus little feeling of accomplishment when you actually do it.

The origins of localizations

Is it possible that one fucking faggot from California and his company is responsible for this hideous practice of disrespecting the source material?

Victor Ireland co-founded Working Wrecking Designs in 1990, during a time when most English vidya translations were sub-par machine translations mixed with some poor salary man trying his best with what little English knowledge he gained in Japanese high school. They took the western gaming scene by storm with their translations that actually read like proper English. Little did vidya enthusiasts know back then, that this egomaniac faggot didn't just translate the Japanese games he brought over, he actually made them into his own.

So imagine this, you want to translate Japanese video games but the translators you hired aren't good enough so what do you do? Just make shit up and insert a bunch of shitty jokes everywhere and call it "localization".

From former Wrecking Designs translator Tim Trzepacz:

>The thing to remember is that Working Designs had really terrible translators until I came along. They were hiring some company out of San Francisco and the translators there didn’t really know English. They could translate the Japanese, but they didn’t really understand what the idiom was they were translating to. And everything was coming out of a spreadsheet so it wasn’t even in context. Japanese is a very context-sensitive language. So to a certain degree [Working Designs co-founder Victor Ireland] had no choice but to make things up as he went, because he had very little to go on. When I came in, I brought in two well-known fan-translators, C. Sue Shambaugh and Richard Kim, who ratcheted up the quality of the translations tremendously. Now things made sense! But by then Victor kinda already had his process down, he liked rewriting it and adding the comedy in.

Source: http://archive.is/TPVZX

To quote the faggot himself:

>‘Oh this script is really boring, let me put some funny stuff in here.’ So I would insert funny lines that really had nothing to do with what was going on. And that sort of evolved. I continued doing that, did more of it, and people generally liked it [because] they were seeing writing that they never saw in Japanese-localized or translated games, like ‘Holy crap, this is amazing’.

Source: http://archive.is/K5cvw

Here's one of the most famous examples of localization from Lunar 2 on the Sega CD:

>Girlie, if I were in the position to throw away cash on bums, you'd call me Clinton and I'd be president.

Someone should make a simple romhack to update this joke to the current year +3.

I can't find the Japanese line online and I don't feel like searching through the Japanese script, but I assure you it's probably not a shitty Clinton joke. If you want more examples of "localization" just check out these articles: https://tcrf.net/Lunar:_The_Silver_Star#Regional_Differences https://tcrf.net/Lunar:_Eternal_Blue/Regional_Differences

Wrecking Designs is also notorious for implementing various gameplay changes (which I'm glad most localizers didn't follow the example of) which they apparently did to combat people abusing store return systems, by beating games very quickly and then returning them to the store. This is mostly hearsay, so it could just be that Victor is a faggot that doesn't just want to rewrite "his games", he wants to redesign them as well. Anyhow, the commercial success of the localizations by Wrecking Designs influenced Japanese developers and vidya translators to follow suit and start localizing their games as well. This gave birth to glorious localizations like Persona 1 and the Ace Attorney series.

At the turn of the century localizations started petering out due to various forms of criticism against these types of botched translations (most likely because of the Internet becoming more available). Things went mostly okay until the great decline of 2007 when vidya became mainstream. Now most Japanese games brought over have some form of localization in them ranging from shitty meme jokes to cut content in the name of making things more "palatable for western audiences". We still get the occasional non localized Japanese games like the Legend of Heroes series, Nier Automata and Persona 5. Sadly it has also spread to animu after the death of fansubbing, with localized Crunchyroll memesubs dominating the subtitle market.

So what happened to Wrecking Designs and that faggot? Well Wrecking Designs died in 2006 and came back as Gaijinworks which hasn't really localized much except for Miami Law, Class of Heroes and Summon Night 5 & 6. Their glory days are long gone, but the damage they did to vidya still lingers to this day.

What do you think the future will bring us when it comes to vidya translations and the horrors of localizations?

Start time 7pm EST/8pm CST/11pm UTC

>What is it?

Barotrauma is a 2D online multiplayer game taking place in a submarine travelling through the icy depths of Jupiter’s moon Europa. The bone-crushing pressure outside the submarine, the strange creatures inhabiting the ocean and the potentially dangerous equipment and machines on board ensure that the tiniest slip can turn the game into a chaotic struggle for survival.

Barotrauma takes place several hundred years in the future. In this time, humanity has established several colonies on Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons.

Due to the deadly amounts of radiation on the surface of the moon, the colonies are constructed under its icy crust. The vast subsurface ocean under the crust is used as a transport route between the colonies and a source of natural resources. In Barotrauma, the player will step into the boots of a recruit on board a submarine traveling in the subsurface ocean. The player’s job is to keep the submarine operational, while carrying out various tasks to earn funds for buying supplies and hiring new crew members. Maintaining and operating the submarine itself isn’t the only challenge, as the ocean is filled with bizarre creatures ranging from harmless small fish to gigantic horrors more than capable of destroying the entire vessel.


Game is 100% free
