Christmas Loli Angel Schoolgirls Club #9: Messiah

Messiah

Release date: March 31, 2000 (NA) - September 15, 2000 (EU)

Developer: Shiny Entertainment - Tommy Tallarico Studios

Publisher: Interplay Entertainment

From the anon that nominated it: "God sends Bob to Earth to clean up the degenerate humans. Bob refuses and says he wants to go back to heaven. Satans like "yo bro, I want some of this action" and you end up with a bizarre third person action game where you play as a cherub. Set in a cyberpunk world the pre-rendered cut scenes look like Fallout if Fallout didn't suck. And then you get to fly around as a cherub in a cyber punk dystopian world. What more could you ask for?"

Where to get it

Legitfags: https://www.gog.com/game/messiah

Piratefags: https://ghostbin.com/paste/yyjzt

Installation should be straightforward. On WINE the installer will probably give you a runtime error after finishing, but you can ignore it. It will have still installed just fine.

The Weaboo Toaster Club Big Titty Nazi Schoolgirls Christmas Loli Angel 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)

Final Fantasy XI: MMORPG boomers

we're playing FFXI on an oldschool 75-cap private server called Era, with 4x rates (or 1x rate + special benefits if you're up to the challenge), and quite a bit of custom content/functions/QoL improvements, and i'm inviting people to see how far they can go. doesn't matter if you're an XI veteran or a complete newbie to the game, we'll take you in and hammer the grind into you.

bringing this thread here from /v/ because it gets very little visibility there and dies really fast. hopefully it'll survive longer here without pointless bumps.

>how do i install this shit?

read this thread on their forums and follow the instructions

http://ffera.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=138&sid=0f0ad153cd48dcc7e22e1c42c000d72c

alternatively, you can use the full era installer, which is on the main website, under the DOWNLOADS tab, but for that you'll have to read up some of the other threads

http://ffera.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=6&sid=0f0ad153cd48dcc7e22e1c42c000d72c

>how do i meet you fags in-game?

open the chat with spacebar, and send a /tell message to Nel, Kashiri, Jem, Steez, or Talos, we'll set you up with a Linkpearl to our chat

ie: /tell Nel -message-

>is the game FUN

the game is a classic tab-targeting turn based mmo. its hard, but it also has a lot of versatility in the roles you play. jobs aren't race or gender locked, you can swap them at any time although they each have their own individual exp bar and level. Enemies will start to periodically kick your ass if you don't cooperate with other players beyond level 20ish unless you really know what you're doing, and that's part of what makes it so fun. there are no markers or autowalk "lines" like in modern ones. so explore away, Sneak & Invisible are your best friends.

>the UI fucking sucks OP!

it definitely takes some getting used to. attached is a little guide on how to make it suck less.

>i keep getting X error when Y

make a post and ask away, maybe we can help. current FFXI private server technology is a bunch of code snipets held together with boogers but it keeps improving little by little.

Couch Multiplayer Gaming

I don't know if you know this anons but the sole reason for having brothers or sisters is having someone to play split screen multiplayer with. asides from bullying. Then you could also bring friends like you had any round and play against them.

Previous Thread >>26642

Link to all the rips made: https://pastebin.com/K8qQfQn7

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?

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.

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.

Star Wars Vidya Thread

Thrawns Revenge Edition

Allow me a moment anons to shill a mod for EAW that heavily unfucks a lot of shit and introduces a lot of great features without having content bloat which is all so common with many a mod and actually seems to not be the bad kind of autistic: Imperial Civil War

What is it?

High quality mod set in the old EU from the aftermath of the Battle of Endor to just before the Vong kicks off. Pretty much could be EAW 2 for all purposes. It has several time periods and eras to choose from plenty of Galactic Conquest scenarios to sink your teeth into that are actually fun and interesting to play and not just challenge mode or unit spamfest for the millionth time. You do have to think tactically in this mod and because there are various factions at play typically you have to think "Do I want to take this world or will I let someone else do the work first for me?" and that's before unit deployment which also isn't a simple case of spam best unit but you need to look at battle and see what forces are best to deploy and typically a well balanced fleet will beat simple Star Destroyer spam in most cases.

So what changes does it make?

To give a short list:

>Graphical overhaul from effects to textures - still a lot of work in progress.

>Adds in 3 way space battles - albeit this feature is a bit limited and usually is formed by a raiding party coming up your ass

>Tweaks space combat to make it more tactical, so you need to have a think about what ships you can deploy

>Adds in the ability to board and capture enemy vessels in galactic conquest which you can then later use and it will even change what starfighters they deploy

>Adds in the ability to withdraw certain units from battle in galactic conquest, particularly useful when you have carriers that have spent all their fighters

>Adds in dozens of unique factions albeit not all are playable

>Detailed Galactic Conquest Campaigns that have a lot of effort put into them

>Attempts at unfucking ground combat which it manages a bit although their main overhaul is still yet to come

<Torpedoes and Missiles no longer go through shields which I am on the fence about as it makes bombers kind of useless, speaking of which:

<Starfighters come in large squadrons now and much harder to hit which is nice but their reduction in damage makes them kind of pointless unless swarmed in large numbers which makes me wish they would give them a buff and make them feel a lot more useful rather than frame destroying decoration pieces

So anons, when are you going to Remove Rebel Scum?

H3VR: 7 Days to Meatmas

This thread is a continuation of part 1 found at >>103085 that is now bumplocked.

So far we have seen the contents of Box 1 through 17 ranging from the godlike AR-10 to the meek FN 1906, to the meme WA2000. With 7 boxes left, what guns remain to be added in time for Meatmas? We'll be running the Daily Firearm Unboxing until then, followed by a bonus unboxing round between Meatmas and MeatYear.

>What is H3VR?

H3VR stands for Hot Dogs, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades and is a VR game based around /k/ tier levels of gun autism. The game already had 250 firearms added into it featuring both famous movie guns and obscure guns simultaneously. There are so many firearms that the IMFDB page got split up into multiple sections due to the sheer amount of content.

>So what can you do in this game?

You've got various sandbox ranges to use, ranging from shooting rival target trees in the evening of Arizona to hitting metal gongs in Tennessee and aiming too high. The gamemodes feature everything from gladiatorial melee combat with sentient sausages, to a 1800's themed western amusement park, to a spooky dark horror house of death, a roguelike survival zombie apocalypse, and even IPSC regulation revolver sessions.

>When is it updated?

Updates are almost weekly, and the developers are extremely active on Youtube as to how to use mechanics and operate various items in the game. You know you're in good hands when they've interrupted their logs with the differences between a clip and a magazine.

>December Update: Meatmas 2018

Meatmas this year added the Colosseum which added new Roman weapons to use, on top of the update for the Meatmas snowglobe sandbox adding in the Daily Firearm Unboxing.

>Daily Firearm Unboxing

The Daily Firearm Unbox is everyday until Meatmas, a new box is hidden around the snowglobe for players to find. Inside is a rifle, pistol, or any other weapon related item. I have already posted the first 5 boxes so far, and I'll keep posting the Daily Firearm until Meatmas on December 25th.

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>.

Uncommon Time General

What is Uncommon Time?

A really, terribly shitty excuse for a JRPG created by a Tumblr user. Since August and December of 2015, it has been celebrated biannually on /v/ with a stream of the game followed by tons of OC from drawings, stories, and even mods.

Why do we need this thread?

This is for the more dedicated autists who want to discuss this game more than twice per year, collect information about its creator, post more OC, and coordinate projects. Currently, most of the effort is going into getting the game voice acted. The games transcript (English) has been provided, but note that it only includes story dialogue. If you are familiar with using RPG Maker, you can help complete the transcript by gathering non-essential dialogue from side quests and various NPCs by either unpacking and looking through the game files or playing the game yourself. There are also two side projects going on in early stages of development, a prequel and a remake.

Why care at all?

There are different reasons as to why people like this game with the two prevailing ones being that it brings people together and that it has some genuinely good stuff that is hidden beneath all the shit. The way that the majority of us began to care, however, was due of its treatment of the deuteragonist, Teagan Almace, as she is seen as being far more reasonable and responsible than anyone else in the game and vilified for it.

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).

Those "action mmos"

Kritika, Soul Worker, Closers

Anyone play any of those?

I know there are private servers for Closers and Soul workers that are supposedly better than the official versions. (But i dont really like the character designs in those games)

I used to play Kritika on a SEA server, but it died out without much explanation couple of years ago (it had an active userbase and all)

Now theres only the the En Masse Kritika server, and i don't really like the way they handel games.

Anyone knows of any other to add to these, besides PSO2, cause that feels to be on a very different level.

Blinx thread

>What is Blinx?

It's an old Xbox platformer about a cat with a vacuum cleaner and time control powers made by a bunch of Sanic veterans. There isn't story aside from an opening and ending cutscene.

There was also a sequel which imitated Sonic Adventure 2, toned down the difficulty, and dropped most of the cute shit. People mostly care about it for the character creator.

>How can I play it?

Until we get a decent Xbox emulator or the mythical PC port is leaked, it's playable on all 3 Xbox generations. Any of them will do, although the Xbone runs it at a higher resolution and the Xbox Heug has a widescreen mod floating around somewhere. If you really want 1080p Blinx for some reason get a used Xbone, nobody wants that shit so they're probably cheap.

There's several versions of Blinx with changed enemy placements and supposedly a different level near the end, but I dunno which is which so you're on your own. There's .ISOs of them floating around the usual sites.

>Why should I care?

It's fun, has a good difficulty curve, and is one of the only kemono games furniggers haven't ruined yet because they all bought Gamecubes to fap to Krystal.

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?

Also anons usual have some insider info on modding projects - anything you know of Tamriel Rebuilt and what the fuck is going on since I haven't heard shit about it in ages.

I'm also curious about the card game because when I saw the art it was down right gorgeous, how does it compare to other games of the type?

Also dumbner and dumb and Dagoth should have corprused their ass.

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?

3D Beatem up general

3D BEAT EM UPS

2d ones are welcome too

I recently finished Yakuza 0 and Wario World and had a lot to talk about the former.

I think the combat system in Yakuza 0 is pretty fun but its very poorly designed. Its the easiest Yakuza game in terms of difficulty and the game doesn't have enough large battles to justify some of the styles. Set pieces wise it might actually be less than the first Yakuza game on PS2. Most bosses boil down to "pick a style and abuse it" but in case of Majima there is no reason to use anything but slugger unless you're fighting an aggressive enemy with super armor, in which case you use the Mad Dog style and just use the counter like Tiger Drop.

As for Kiryu, his styles pretty much become obsolete when you get Dragon of the Dojima style which incorporates moves that you don't even get in the second game.

Overall a good game but the campaign could use way more large battles. At least it has Climax Battles unlike Yakuza 6.

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.

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?

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.

1998 vs 1999

What year was better for vidya?

I have always been tied for this and I think most of it overall comes down to platform differences. I would argue that 1998 was a better year for Console but 1999 was stronger for PC.

1998

Big console releases

>Resident Evil 2

>Xenogears

>NFS III Hot Pursuit

>Banjo-Kazooie

>Panzer Dragoon Saga

>Spyro the Dragon

>Star Ocean: The Second Story

>Vigilante 8

>Metal Gear Solid

Though there were a few notable PC releases like:

>Unreal

>Starcraft

>Age of Empires: Rise of Rome

>Delta Force

>Fallout 2

Meanwhile

1999

Big console releases

>Silent Hill

>Super Smash bros

>Sonic Adventure

While PC got some big hits with:

>Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri

>Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance

>EverQuest

>Aliens versus Predator

>Counter-Strike

>System Shock 2

>Command & Conquer: Tiberiun Sun

>Homeworld

>Age of Empires II

>Opposing Force

>Quake III

>SWAT 3

This is why I find it hard to decide which year was better.

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?

Reminder that if you don't enjoy listening to poetry about big titty bitches over in game VOIP then you are a faggot.

So what do you use if any fags? Felt it might be worth having a discussion about VOIP and the cancer it can bring as well as sharing hints and tips on how to improve micspam along with pros and cons.

You typically have a few options out there:

Ingame

>Means you don't have to install typically some spyware, just plug in a mic and go

<Quality ranges from dreadful to truly awful

Mumble

>Open Source, Low Resource, good quality

<UI is pretty much ass

<Goon stigma

Teamspeak

>Reliable, decent quality, lots of useful plugins for it, UI isn't crap

<Tends to be a bit of a resource hog

Ventrillo

<Does anyone even still use this?

Curse Voice

<lol

Discord

>(((Free)))

<Sure if you want to use an insecure Chinese botnet where they record and sell every bit of information you post, with the company being guilty of accessing user data outwidth the application without their permission in the past, be my fucking guest!

I don't want to talk about shitty VOIP! I just wanna mic spam!

Well you can skip to this section then.

Quickest way is to use virtual audio: https://www.vb-audio.com/Cable/

Download that, set default device to virtual audio in and out, either use a macro or use a command to keep mic open constantly, and have a decent playlist with good taste because if you don't you will be bullied.

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.

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.

Obscure IP General - /oipg/

I thought it would be interesting to have a thread where we discussed IP's that would make for some good vidya but for whatever reason seem cursed to be nogames. Premise is to discuss what sort of game said IP would be good for and maybe even suggest any obscure vidya or even mods for the IP that nobody may have heard of.

To kick this off I'll discuss Stargate which seems to be hurt with the nogames curse worse than anything else. No matter how many promising projects that come into the works they typically end up getting cancelled or buried never to see light of day. Even when it comes to modding most projects seem doomed to failure or to never be completed despite there being a few things that are playable out there made mostly by the French for whatever reason, I'll link these mods below

Why Stargate would be good?

Stargate has that whole tactical exploration through a comfy command center thing going for it. Imagine an XCom game based off of Stargate where you manage small teams looking to gather intel and tech or perform surgical strikes? You could also make something like Hidden & Dangerous combined with Mist where you look for puzzles and solve clues while watching out for mad Jaffas.

But there are mods already?

True but as I said earlier a lot are incomplete or dead. Here is a few examples of the more playable ones at least:

>SG Mod

http://sgmod.dfreload.com/

Stargate Mod for Joint Operations, Delta Force Xtreme 1 and 2. No idea which is best. Supposedly they are all interchangeable.

>Morrowind Stargate

https://www.moddb.com/mods/morrowind-stargate

A conversion for Morrowind. Bit clunky but goes with the game engine.

>War Begins

https://www.moddb.com/mods/stargate-mod-war-begins

Mod for Nexus The Jupiter Incident. Fun if you like tactical battles and relatively complete but still not completely finished.

>Enemy at the Gate

https://www.moddb.com/mods/stargate-enemyatthegate

Star Trek Legacy mod. Missing a few ships but playable.

>Stargate Infini

https://www.moddb.com/mods/stargate-infini

Mod for Freelancer. Good if you like an open world with spaceships. Bad if you hate Freelancer.

>Stargate La Releve

https://www.moddb.com/mods/stargate-la-relve

BF2 also BF1942 and 2142 versions mod. About as complete as it will ever be.

>Stargate TC SG-1 Missions

https://www.moddb.com/mods/stargate-tc-sg1-missions-remod

Mod for Half-Life although quite buggy. At least it offers some decent singleplayer.

>Stargate Invasion

https://www.moddb.com/mods/stargate-invasion

Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion mod. Good if you like 4X

>Peagus Chronicles

https://www.moddb.com/mods/stargate-empire-at-war

Empire at War mod and being actively updated which is a nice change for SG mods.

>Stargate JA

https://www.moddb.com/mods/star-gate-multiplayer-mod-for-ja

Mod that adds some character models, weapons, vehicles and maps to Jedi Academy

>Total Conversion II

https://www.moddb.com/mods/stargatetc-2

Mod for Half-Life 2 that is unfortunately multiplayer only.

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.

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.

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.

So if Smash For was Brawl 1.5 what does that make Smash Ultimate? Brawl 1.8?

Who do you think they're gonna announce next?

Who do you want them to announce?

What do you think of the new announcements so far?

Are you going to actually buy it?

When is Sakurai going to realize that every nintendo IP is trash except Kirby and just remove everyone and replace them all with Kirby characters? It's what God intended.

Go hang yourself nigger if you are going to be like that. They didn't even attempt to make Star Wars vidya till the 90's.

Sad what an empty shell of a company this studio became when Disney bought it. They clearly did not value any of the IP's other than Star Wars. Shame because of the IP's they had they had some great properties and games. Fags only need state Mercenaries or Armed and Dangerous as great examples. I've been looking to dig up a list of what they were involved in but can't seem to find anything complete, any anons capable of lending a hand?

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.

Problems in Strategy RPGs

Is it just me or does this entire genre have a hell of a time actually executing what it aspires to? I'm not sure I see any clear patterns but, for some reason in most of the SRPGs I've played and liked, I always seem to notice some sort of fundamental design problem that keeps a particular game from achieving greatness.

Let's take Gladius for example. The swing meter system kills a lot of strategy this game would have otherwise had. It trivializes the rock-paper-scissor class balancing by encouraging the player to recruit entirely Heavy class gladiators because being able to time attacks properly on their swing meters ensures that even attacks with 5% accuracy will hit 100% of the time. On the other hand, if you turn the swing meter entirely off it makes a lot of dedicated status-effecting moves completely unreliable and unappealing to strategize around. The game should never have had the swing meter and status-altering moves should have worked in a deterministic fashion. It's really too bad that planned sequel never materialized; they could have had a chance to really work out the kinks.

Giveaway Thread: OP Isn't a Retard Edition

Okay, I'm back after the colossal failure of my last thread (>>108549). I have no space for all of my physical vidya, so I've decided to give some of it away. Roll dubs to pick a game. If you roll dubs for a game but it's already been claimed, you can't use your dubs to pick another one. You can only pick one game per post. You can roll once per day.

>Am I to pay for shipping?

No. I have no PayPal account, or any other means of receiving money. That's partly why I'm requiring dubs, as sending every single game here upon request would cost more than I can afford. If you were so inclined, I accept codes for GOG, Xbox, Steam and PSN in that order, but gifting me anything is not required.

>Why so many shit games?

Some I inherited, some I purchased for $5 or less. I was an avid collector at one point in time.

Some caveats:

I have all of the Shenmue discs except the first one, and I'm missing Disc 2 of Halo 4. Shenmue is in the blank white case while Halo will ship in a GameStop slip case. Halo 3 might be chainsawed. Assume all codes for games are used. I am currently on the roads so my thread ID may change.

Gamedev LARP'ing

Since so many games are shit, I've recently been thinking on how I'd approach the task of creating an open-world RPG to my liking. This is largely written for my own enjoyment and to help me gather my thoughts on the subject.

Feel free to ignore my post and list your own ideal game designs.

Warning, massive wall of autism ahead!

<Mobs:

>Enemies don't level with you, at the start of the game some areas will be gated through difficulty.

>New enemies sometimes come back to a cleared location, these may or may not be more powerful.

>The bandits in the woods you killed might attract scavenging animals/monsters and an old tomb you cleared from necromancers could rise as undead mages.

>Each enemy model is tied to a specific powerlevel, a 'level 1 wolf' and a 'level 20 wolf' will have unique models or skins which you can distinguish at a distance.

>Enemy stats will be slightly randomized, for example a 'level 1 wolf' will always have a pool of 30 points but they can go into damage, speed, defence, health etc. at varying degrees.

<Questing and the world:

>No quest markers or 'dynamic' map. You may acquire a map but it doesn't magically show your location, it's detailed enough that you can orientate yourself by surroundings.

>You can put up map markers and some NPC's may mark locations for you. You'll be able to get a compass but it just shows which direction you look.

>NPC's will attempt to explain where places are and how to get there, you can later consult your journal.

>Houses don't have loading screens, larger 'dungeons' and cities may if necessary (though ideally not).

>Tons of worthless lootable clutter with physics.

>Personal housing.

>No fast-travel, there are instantaneous 'taxi services' at important places. You can buy a mount.

<NPC's:

>No followers or companions besides summoning, necromancy or beast taming.

>Dialogue options unlocked with skill requirement, mainly speech.

>NPC traders have a pre-determined inventory alongside a secondary which is randomly generated and occasionally refreshed (rare materials often only come from the random list). Consumables get replenished.

<Character statistics and levelling:

>See pic 2 and 3 for basic idea, would probably require actual testing and some redesigning.

>You advance to a new level by gaining experience from questing and murdering.

>You gain 5 attribute points you can freely invest and 1 'learning point' which you'll need to spend at specific NPC's (alongside gold) to unlock special 'techniques'. Most NPC's can only teach 1-2 things.

>These 'techniques' are mostly passive and often carry a skill and/or attribute requirement (new weapon movesets, new unique effects from certain spells, enhanced movement, crafting and dialogue perks etc.)

>Skills are improved through using them but each skill has a governing attribute which it can't exceed.

<Gameplay/combat mechanics:

>Drinking and eating require an animations.

>Inventory/stat screen doesn't pause the game, you can hotkey spells/consumables, a 'quick select' key pauses the game where you can select spells/consumables but using them requires in-game animation.

>Based on a first-person viewing angle.

>Body parts have their own segmented hitboxes and you can dismember enemies (see picture 1)

>Enemies react and flinch depending on where they're hurt. They can be blinded and hindered from running or wielding weapon properly.

>Armor can be torn, crushed and otherwise damaged to increase damage on specific body parts.

>You have a dash with invulnerability frames, attacking and blocking costs no 'stamina' but dashing has a quickly regenerating charge (think ~3-4 seconds), can unlock additional charge.

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.

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?

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:

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?

Games and niggers

We all hate niggers equally in here so I think it's a good opportunity to have a thread were we could lash out at niggers in videogames. It may be rare, but there are games that allow to kill niggers. In this thread I'd like to encourage the subject.

Also, zombies on Resident Evil 5 aren't exactly niggers, they aren't as brown as I'd imagine them, just too fucking black and a lot of shaders, almost look blue. Niggers are this bad, their skin makes them indistinguishable from monsters because maybe they're the non-humans themselves.

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 :^(

2018: year in review

So now that the year's over what would you say it was like in terms of vidya? I'd say it's probably the worst year in terms of released games since 2013 or potentially further. I can think of only a handful of games that came out this year and nothing that's truly stand out. Off the top of my head the following were worth playing not counting ports, remasters or early access shit that finally 'released':

>Hitman 2 7

>Kingdom Come: Deliverance

>Monster Hunter: World

>Valkyria Chronicles 4

>Into the Breach

>Total Warhammer 2

>maybe Vermintide 2?

Nothing that will be worth discussing a few years down the line though just 7/10s at best. I guess Kingdom Come for GOTY?

On the other hand it does at least feel like 'culturally' speaking there's a bit of a push back even among normalfags against SJW shit infiltrating games Battlefield V, half-finished/lazy AAA shit Fallout 76 and lootbox/microtransaction cancer Artifact and that shitty mobile Diablo game. There's still a long way to go but it was an improvement at least. SJW's playing their hands with things like picrelated in the game awards can only be good in the long run since it will expose their full insanity to the normalfags. I'm seriously wondering if 8chan is even going to see 2020 at this rate too but that's a different topic.

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.

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.

Rising Storm 2 thread

Anyone here play this?

They just released the Christmas map which is based on the Green Army Men mod that the game has. The map is really good fun, reminds me a lot of CS 1.6 rats maps it also runs quite well, which hasn't been the case for some other maps they have released recently unfortunately. You take no fall damage and can jump out of helicopters mid flight, which makes for a lot of fun vertical combat that isn't really present on almost all other maps and there's so much room for navigation and cover, no silly open fields everywhere. I hope that they will reactivate this every Christmas period, or add another map next time.

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.

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.

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).

Real Time Or Turn Based combat

Real time or turnbased combat, which do you prefer in an RPG?

I noticed that the games that are real time tend to hold my attention better, .hack, Rogue Galaxy to name some. Then you have something in between like Shadow Hearts which used the Judgment ring for your attacks where you need to hit inside a certain area to get a hit or a crit. Its still turn based but asks for input from the player to make the attack. I think its more of an evolution from regular turn based stuff but I there are still a ton of Rpgs I haven't played so many one of them does the regular turn based better.

What do you like faggots and why is realtime better?

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

The only game I can name off the top of my head is Puyo Puyo versus Tetris, which had a thread here but died due to being horribly balanced(Tetris players could pull instant kills by stacking 5+ rows then getting a line).

Feel free to ask openly for "trusted" so that you can advdupe your stuff if you wanna keep it for later. The server isn't mine, but the two anons running it will totally give you the rank if you build some cool shit and don't act like a twat, rather than waiting for it.

Ragdolls

What are some games that used ragdoll physics well and some games that used them badly?

I remember back in the days of arma 2 everyone was complaining about the way the death-animations in the game made firefights far less intense, because you could often recognize them, and know if you killed that one guy.

When arma 3 was in development the devs made a big whazoo about the new ragdolls. In the early footage they looked good and really smooth.

When the Alpha version came out which I bought, because I am a massive milsim-fag, the ragdoll wasn't as good. Characters felt like they had too much weight and would just crash into the ground and form into a pile. Later on during betaphase they revisited the ragdolls, but now the characters flop around a lot when you hit them, and their arms go flying when they die.

I am honestly not sure which is worse. No ragdolls, or the bad ragdolls.

Batman:Arkham Origins

Opinions on this game.

The game is played from a third-person perspective, focuses on Batman's combat and stealth abilities, detective skills, and gadgets for combat and exploration. Aside from the main story, Batman can help the police deal with crimes, and confront other supervillains terrorizing the city. Arkham Origins introduces the ability for Batman to virtually recreate crimes, allowing him to investigate the scene and identify the culprit

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.

The Doom that Saved Christmas

SECOND CHRISTMAS DOOM GAMENIGHT - MARK DELETED THE PASTA EDITION

(So I had to type this quick shitty version typed at like 1am instead)

Nothing better to do on Christmas than play Doom? Good, because there's actually nothing better you could possibly be doing on any day than playing Doom! We'll be playing with various Christmas themed wad's and playing (mainly?) Christmas music on the server thanks to Zandronum's changemus command - it can play pretty much any .mp3 or .ogg URL including streams. If you want to suggest wads, especially map pack ones, and train maps feel free to link them in the thread. The same goes for music, especially Christmas music. Hostfag is busy part of the day and whoever has admin is arguably even more autistic than he is, so please be patient. The server may also restart often to add different wads.

Where do I get Doom?

if you're really asking this in almost-2019 you're mom is a newfag and i fucked you last night

We're using a Zandronum 3.0 server with our own wads, so for best results use Doomseeker or similar. If you don't know what that means just grab the Windows installer (it includes both Zandronum and Doomseeker) from here: https://zandronum.com/downloads/zandronum3.0-win32-installer.exe

The installer will ask you for the Doom 2 iwad. You can fucking google it or get it from the downloads page below.

If you're on Linux you should already know what you're doing, but you can probably find doomseeker and zandronum in your distro's repositories. Then just put doom2.wad in ~/.zandronum/

Downloads page

We usually use a ghostbin since that lets you edit it after the fact if you manage to fuck something up, but it's dead so have this:

http://videogames.69.mu/uuuu/doominfo.html (this is the same server as the game itself so don't be paranoid)

Any extra shit you might need will probably be added here.

How to join

Server Name:: /v/ideo games

Server IP if needed: 73.182.32.243

You should be able to find /v/ideo games in Doomseeker. If not, just add the IP to the list in Options -> Configuration -> Custom Servers. (click Add and make sure you select Zandronum)

Password: infinity

(we usually don't enable the password until we need to so you might not be asked)

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.

H3VR: Daily December Firearm Unboxing Thread

This thread originally started from the thread in /vrg/ talking about VR videogames, and has sort of became its own topic as a result of H3VR's Meatmas 2018 Update.

>What is H3VR?

H3VR stands for Hot Dogs, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades and is a VR game based around /k/ tier levels of gun autism. The game already had 250 firearms added into it featuring both famous movie guns and obscure guns simultaneously. There are so many firearms that the IMFDB page got split up into multiple sections due to the sheer amount of content.

>So what can you do in this game?

You've got various sandbox ranges to use, ranging from shooting rival target trees in the evening of Arizona to hitting metal gongs in Tennessee and aiming too high. The gamemodes feature everything from gladiatorial melee combat with sentient sausages, to a 1800's themed western amusement park, to a spooky dark horror house of death, a roguelike survival zombie apocalypse, and even IPSC regulation revolver sessions.

>When is it updated?

Updates are almost weekly, and the developers are extremely active on Youtube as to how to use mechanics and operate various items in the game. You know you're in good hands when they've interrupted their logs with the differences between a clip and a magazine.

>December Update: Meatmas 2018

Meatmas this year added the Colosseum which added new Roman weapons to use, on top of the update for the Meatmas snowglobe sandbox adding in the Daily Firearm Unboxing.

>Daily Firearm Unboxing

The Daily Firearm Unbox is everyday until Meatmas, a new box is hidden around the snowglobe for players to find. Inside is a rifle, pistol, or any other weapon related item. I have already posted the first 5 boxes so far, and I'll keep posting the Daily Firearm until Meatmas on December 25th.

Now could circlejerk hard about how much we hate dem evil kikeboxes but I am not so interested in that. What I want to know is:

>What laws are they currently breaking if any?

>How is the FTC likely to rule?

>How badly does this affect current publishers if FTC rules against them?

>If the FTC does shut them down how does this affect Global Rules on 8chan?

How to install?

Well first off, if you are still having issues after this is all setup then make a new profile and delete old one after it's all done. That's what fixed it for me.

Short version, read the readme in Steel Fury Mods

Long version:

>Put the contents inside "wide Screen fix" in your SF directory.

>Put the contents of "JSGME" in your SF directory

>Extract these mods into the "MODS" folder inside your SF Directory:

> STA 1.0

> STA GMP 1.4

> STA GMP 2.2

> STA GMP 3.2

>Launch JSGME.exe which is located in your SF directory.

>Activate mods in this order:

> SSM 2.2

> STA 1.0 full

> JanUpd_2015

> STA GMP 1.4

> STA GMP 2.2

> STA GMP 3.2

>Extract and launch 4gb_patch.exe and apply it to "starter.exe" loacated in the SF directory.

>Launch 4gb patch.exe again and apply to "steel fury directory"/bin/rel/shell.exe

>Play game

You pretty much need the mods to play this game if you are having resolution issues.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Non-tranny speedruns

As I'm sure you all know modern speedrunning is 90% trannies and attentionwhores but speedruns themselves can 'sometimes be interesting to watch, more for the deeper exploration of game mechanics and engine quirks than completing the games quickly in most cases though. With that in mind let's have a thread where we try and collection non-shit speedruns that can be worth watching. That means picking them based on the following rules:

1. No tranny speedrunners and no tranny commentators.

2. Speedrunner or people commentating aren't acting too much like faggots in general i.e. it should be watchable not just for cringe value

2. Some commentary to explain what's going on since the average human being isn't an autist who understands this shit. Could make an exception for interesting tool-assisted videos

3. Should be interesting to watch i.e. not just glitching through walls constantly and isn't abusing the same bug/trick almost exclusively e.g. Half Life 1 and 2 and bunny hopping constantly, that shit's boring after the first few minutes. So variety in what they do, mechanically interesting, tricks are based off of deeper understandings of the engine and so on. If it's just a faggot who's using pure muscle memory don't bother posting it, one good idea is to avoid Any% and go for things listed as 100%, All Missions, Glitchless or so on since they usually feature some actual gameplay.

4. Not too many duplicate games maybe if they're interestingly different categories or something that's ok

Common sources below but some will put non-marathon videos with commentary up on their own channels and these are much better since they lack donation cancer:

>NASA (generally less cancer/less commercialised than GDQ)

has rules that you gotta actually role - play as your character, has pvp too though.

(game launches in 2 hours on steam). oldschool online RPG (you get banned if you dont play as if your the character your playing as you can pvp but gotta have a reason etc, you can be an asshole making up reason btw).

Friends

Hey anons I'll be willing to try to be your friend it will be a strict 1-on-1 friendship, I want the same thing as you, I do have a few expectations (it's most about the kind of friendship itself) though and I'm not sure if we can become friends, if you don't mind this don't hesitate to contact me, my email is yuu@firemail.cc

I'll explain to you how I feel about this in more detail when we have talked for a bit. I'm also curious if you have any expectations (just tell me per email). You surely not just want any friend if you could choose, you want some probably which you share hobbies with and which has a character similar to you, don't you? Maybe this doesn't sound like much, but I think it absolutely could meet that if you can meet mine and we could become good friends or whatever you had in mind when talking about friends.

Silent Hill P.T. Connections in fan production

Silent Hill Fan series. Stuff looks very campy, but am I the only one feeling that there is some Kojitroll stuff going on here? In their social media the production keeps tagging the location as "Silent Hills" always a plural even though they are saying that the series is only a tribute to the first 4 games.

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.

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.

Post in the thread how much of a shill OP is because he doesnt write like a 17 yo and knows what an elevator pitch is.

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.

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)

Object design in Vidya

Been debating on how to make this thread but something I have wanted to talk about ever since I played that Timeshift game from the toaster club recently Yeah I will catch up someday

That is talking about designing objects that complement the world that you are trying to build in a game.

The first example I am going to use is how everything in the Timeshift game appears designed to fit within the narrative of that world, like take this tank for instance. If you used it in the real world it would not fit, but if you put it in context with the design of the world it's meant to be in then the design appears sound and logical. It's not meant for fighting a foreign power but for urban pacification. Its design from top to bottom seems to fit this, plus its aesthetic is fitting with the world of Timeshift. If you put in any other universe it would look out of place but crucially, if you tried to put anything from our universe in there it would conversely look out of place. Follow me?

Another example I will use is the aesthetics of Red Alert 2. Every unit is meant to give the look and feel of a campy B Action movie that's playing it straight and for the most part it does it right. Like everything that has been put in game has designed to fit together.

Reason I bring this up is because I find it neat that devs would take the time and dedication to develop a world that it seems every set piece has been designed specifically to complement a particular aesthetic which I feel is hard to pull off honestly.

When I was growing up there used to be a few scattered around town but they quickly started closing down. Most ended up merged with entertainment centers in shopping malls before eventually they stopped as well. Now I just don't see arcades about at all.

Was wondering what anons thought about them and how they did in other countries?

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.

Realism vs Immersion

I hear a lot of cirlecjerking from milsim fags about "muh realism" in vidya despite the fact they would not know what realism is but in same sentence go on about "muh immersion" as well despite there being a fundamental difference between the two.

Now take the first part, realism. How the hell do you define that? Take a shooter for example, if you were to make a realistic gun then not only would most of them empty their magazines in under 2 seconds most would be under a second if fired in full auto and have some hefty recoil that you can't really feel in game but if you were trained enough some you could control. Plus there's all sorts of things that effect raifus like you know mud, heat, wind etc that are close to impossible to simulate.

Then if you get onto movement well movement is always unnatural in vidya and it's often too easy to get stopped by invisible walls or 1ft high fences that you can't step over. You're stuck in the confines of the engagement area and unable to really think for yourself. That's not realistic at all is it?

With immersion it's a different story. A game does not have to be realistic I believe to be immersive. Take Red Orchestra for example. It's not that realistic when it comes down to it, but it sure as hell builds up a lot of atmosphere making every move potentially ptsd inducing. Then there is Arma which again is not realistic but makes you plan every move tactically as it is so clunky you need to think before you act making you feel like you are acting like an operator when you are not. You've also got Fear which is arcadey but definitely draws you inside the game thanks to some great atmosphere.

I've heard fags saying VR allows things to be super immersive but I have tried it and honestly I don't understand what the fuss is about. Might just be me but I could not get over the feel that everything felt unnatural and it made things feel less immersive for me. Could not get over the feeling that it was completely artificial.

So anons, thoughts?

Video game addiction still being pushed, starting with Fortnite.

Archive:

https://archive.fo/8DEkO

>A Bloomberg article details the case of a boy named Carson, who’s 17 and has been playing Fortnite for 12 hours a day solid. Carson’s mother says his teachers complain of worsening grades and bouts of sleeping in class, and that she has never seen a game that has “such control over kids’ minds”. The article goes on to quote British behavioral specialist Lorrine Marer, who compares the game to heroin and claims it’s difficult to break Fortnite addiction once it starts.

>According to Bloomberg, although Fortnite isn’t the first game to cause addiction, it has “created a more widespread menace”, with cases of addiction appearing against a backdrop of concerns over social media and smartphone overuse among young people. Video games are also cropping up as a citation on divorce petitions; around 200 divorce petitions this year cited Fortnite and other games as the reason for a marriage breakdown. Psychiatrist Paul Weigle, who says he has about 20 compulsive Fortnite players he’s seeing, thinks gaming addiction is “going to be more of a problem than it is now” as games become more sophisticated.

>(((Bloomberg)))

Everything in this article is absolutely absurd. I won't deny that lootboxes and such are gambling and can be addictive, but calling a game itself "as addicting as heroin" seems fucking stupid, especially a fucking meme of the month like shitnite.

I do like how it says:

<"Psychiatrist Paul Weigle, who says he has about 20 compulsive Fortnite players he’s seeing, thinks gaming addiction is “going to be more of a problem than it is now” as games become more sophisticated."

>Fortnite

>sophisticated

<"Video games are also cropping up as a citation on divorce petitions; around 200 divorce petitions this year cited Fortnite and other games as the reason for a marriage breakdown."

>Divorcing someone over a meme game.

<"Some have warned that the payment systems in games like Fortnite are “predatory”, and could lead to children becoming addicted to gambling."

Now I'm not an expert on this game but isn't the payment system just for cosmetics and those meme dances? If the game is pay2win or strongarms you like other games do (See: that one harry potter mobile mmo thing that tortures and restrains your character if you don't pay) then sure, it can be considered "predatory". Otherwise it's not different than what other popular games have been doing for years, like TF2 and shit, It's still not ok but it's not "predatory".

Growing over Vidya

Have you ever felt like overgrowing your vidya addiction?

There were a few times in life when I felt like that, its like game wont cut it anymore, and nothing satisfies you, I'm feeling like that right now.

To be clear, I still appreciate what each game experience brings on to you, you had fun with it, but whatever it is just doesn't cut out anymore, you can't get into it.

Is it time to become an adult? also vidya feels thread I guess

Good Phone Games

I bet you came here just to say, "there's no such thing >>>/reddit/." Well, you're about to learn to appreciate the years upon years that I spent scrolling through the games store, downloading, trying and deleting countless piles of pure crap. Because it's nice to be able to pull out a game and kill ten minutes when there is down time at work or while waiting for food at a restaurant, and nobody wants to be that freakshow who carries a DS around. All your normalfag acquaintances are playing their Candy Clashes and Fartstones, anyway.

I am sharing my illustrious list of good phone games, but I am also hoping that anons will share theirs. My definition of "good phone game," (aside from the obvious criteria of being actually good and not some skinnerbox clone of a browser turd, like Evony) is a game that asks for NO special permissions. No access to your files, no access to your location, no in-app purchases, nothing like that. Any of these games you can find by searching in your game store.

Kai Chronicles

An adaptation of Joe Dever's adventure book series from 1984. It automatically updates your action sheet and calculates combat results. Plus it prevents you from cheating because you can't go back to the previous page, or anything like that. It only includes the first 12 books, but it does provide links to pdfs of the full series, automatic action charts and random number generators.

Nethack

This is a port that was made by a team separate from the team working on Nethack. It isn't the most recent version but it works well with touch screen and the most used keys scroll along the bottom of your screen so you don't need to pull up the keyboard much.

Antiyoy

This is a very simple 4x, where matches are usually finished within 5 minutes. You upgrade soldier units by combining two of the same type and have three types to buildings to build. It's really more of a RISK clone than a 4x, actually.

Occidental Heroes

It takes its inspiration from games like Sid Meier's Pirates and Mount & Blade. You control a 3-person mercenary team, traveling across an overworld map taking random quests and trading in towns, building your reputation so you can take tougher quests and get better equipment. There is no story or point outside of seeing how long you can survive. Your individual members can have good funerals or meager funerals based on their own reputations and the amount of money they were able to earn and send back to their family. Combat is tactical turn based, with special movement and attack rules for each of the three classes.

Space Trader

It's the phone adaptation of Pieter Spronck's popular Palm OS adaptation of the Commodore 64 game, Space Trader: the merchant/pirate sim from 1980 that inspired games like Sid Meier's Pirates.

And that's it. All the good phone games I'm aware of. You're welcome.

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.

HUDs done right

Unique HUD designs that make sense for the overall theme of their respective games instead of just being the usual overlay (or lack thereof) at the edges of the screen. Anyone got more examples?

>The controversy surrounding Fallout 76 is huge, there is no doubt about that. When the game initially came out, a lot of players found some mechanics and visuals that looked similar to both Fallout 4 and Skyrim. And now we can safely say that Fallout 76 does in fact feature engine code that was taken directly from Fallout 4 and Skyrim.

>For starters, the “downloadable content check” functionality exactly the same. In fact, Bethesda did not even bother to edit the comment section of the code and remove the references to Fallout 4. Now I get it, it’s easier to simply copy-paste the code that works – and doesn’t introduce any major issues – but this here proves that parts of Fallout 76’s engine are simply taken from Fallout 4 and Skyrim.

>Bethesda has also used the exact scripts and animations for the Scorchbeast Queen. I’m pretty sure you’ve seen some videos that compare the Scorchbeast creatures with Skyrim’s dragons and this right here explains why they look so similar; that’s because the scripts and pretty much everything is the same (well apart from the models).

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.

Mechanicus

Warhammer 40k: Mechanicus recently came out to little fanfare. I've had the pleasure of blitzing through it twice and wanted to give it a light review and see what others think of it. It is yet another 40k game joining the swelling ranks of titles from the franchise but unlike most others it does not focus on the now overdone space marines/chaos marines/orkz/eldar and instead focuses on the adeptus mechanicus, an often overlooked yet crucial sub-faction of the Imperium of man.

It is a rather simple turn based tactics game where you explore small dungeons room by room and get choose your own adventure style encounters mixed with tactical combat segments. On these missions you bring a small number of tech priest magi, critical units that are tougher and more useful than disposable fodder 'soldiers' but must be kept alive to keep the mission going. Between dungeon delving missions you spend accumulated arbitrary resources to upgrade your tech priests. Tech priests can choose skills and gear from different classes but can mix and match resulting in most priests ending up rather samey by the end as there are a few critical skills too good to pass up on anyone ever. The combat is simple, units can move x number of tiles per turn and can stop to shoot and go until its all taken up. Each weapon can be fired once with the primary mechanic being that all of them with some exceptions cost a cognition point resource that is generated in battle to use. Cognition can also be spent to activate items you have equipped for get extra movement out of your tech priests. Units have Base HP and nearly irrelevant armor stats that reduce physical or energy damage types. Outside of the beginning of the game and a few rare encounters armor will hardly ever matter as there usually is not enough to stop a high power shot from shredding the relatively low HP pools of anything being shot at. On a side note, once you've discovered the optimal means of play can really hurt the game because tech priests can become so brutally powerful every mission can be steam rolled in the first turn(The final two bosses of the game I killed turn 1). This leads to a complaint I have being that there is no difficulty setting, what you get just isn't tough enough outside of the early game where you are still painfully under equipped and are actually in danger(and consequently having a lot more fun). Every mission you do adds to a doom counter that is a hard time limit for completing the game. There are also 2 sets of missions you can optionally do to slightly effect the ending.

As far as 40k goes its pretty great seeing a non-standard 40k faction get some love, the mechanicus employs a lot of lightning guns and shiny toys and turning your tech adept into an inhuman monstrocity more scarey than the xenos you are facing has some satisfaction to it. Most dialogue and story is delivered via a handful of magi that offer you the mission you go on and the replies you give them via the head magos whom's you are playing the role of. The magi have some decent character to them but they never really grow. Despite not ever really going anywhere they are fun to bant with and are surprisingly sassy for adeptus mechanicus cronies who are usually portrayed as cold and bland. The necrons also seem to have some character to them as it uses the later 40k lore that gave them more opportunities to be anything other than space terminator drones. The necron lord bosses while piss easy have some nice dialogue and the later ones shit talk like pros.

The game runs fairly well but does include jank, I found the level up system would break and require a restart for reasons I cannot fathom and using the chain lightning gun caused soft locks when hitting large targets. The only other problem was a cosmetic one involving deploying servo skulls. This was all I really ran into bug wise though.

The game is short and fun but the flaws in the simple tactics system start to show if you really blitz into it. Luckily they aren't charging full price like a lot of warham titles have been and it certainly would not be worth it had that been the case. Or if you are a wise man its already had a codex release and you can find it easily.

Any extra thoughts on the game anons?
