Welcome to our little corner of madness where we discus horror games, find obscure horror games and complain about the genre being dead.

This general isn't to replace other threads talking specific horror titles but those can be disused about here too.

that doesn't say anywhere that it was a joke, just tha the was SUPPOSEDLY going to send it to someone to analizewhich isn't in any way mutually exclusive with having wiped it. Data just doesn't disappear from a hard drive, when you do a quick format what it actually does is mark the bits in the hard drive as writable, but until they are overwritten they are accesible, so if he isntalled anythign after formating that'd have deleted some of the original data, but not everything unless he filled everything.

Even if OP had gone and claimed he didn't wipe it (which he didn't) at that point it'd just be fucking damage control after people shat on him so hard.

That'd be nice if it was true but it seems an awful lot like someone coming up with an excuse after the fact because of bully.

Honestly the school was great, unsurprisingly given that it was demoed heavily before release, and the mech sections were good fun as well. I just can't forgive the more generic console-shooter approach and things like nerfing the shotguns. I also have to take a minute to specifically bitch about the way they 'haloed up' the gun designs, it's a personal pet hate of mine when a game or film lazily slaps excessive lights and plastic housings onto guns to make them look futuristic because it would actually be counter-productive when designing a gun. People don't go around designing guns to be larger for no reason.

F.E.A.R. 2 also had this second semi-auto shotgun which gradually replaced the first one (which was pump action except when it forgot to be). This is because Monolith in 1 explicitly intended every gun exception of the superweapons which had limited ammo to be equally viable and to remain so through the end game but in 2 they actually went for a tier system where some guns were obviously inferior.

You should really provide an archive link anon https://archive.li/bKNbf

If you haven't by now you can add a one-click bookmark to your toolbar to turn any page quickly into an archive. The easymode is to go to https://archive.fo/ and drag the bookmarklet onto your bookmarks toolbar (the bit below the url bar, any bookmarks you put there are always visible).

If for some reason you'd rather do it manually then on firefox do the following:

1. Go to bookmarks and show all bookmarks

2. Right click on bookmarks toolbar and click new bookmark

3. Give it whatever name you want and put javascript:void(open('https://archive.today/?run=1&url='+encodeURIComponent(document.location))) in the location

4. Click add then drag it to the top of the toolbar section (or somewhere near the start)

Either way you'll now have a button like in the fourth picture that instantly opens a new tab and archives it for you.

No, it really does. The gameplay is trash compared to FEAR's. Fear 2 is a turd nugget pseudo-successor. The shitty expansions for FEAR are better.

c83e3d  No.48875


>The shitty expansions for FEAR are better.

Honestly Extraction Point is a fine expansion, it has the best single gunfight in the game in the funeral home. Also they added the ability to melee open doors, the grenade-turret and the laser rifle that can chop faggots up which are small but welcome. I wouldn't say it's quite as good as the original but as more of the same it's nothing bad. Perseus Mandate I liked less because the gunfights were just rehashed with slightly higher health enemies it added boring NPCs to fight alongside early on as well as adding just outright better guns like the new assault rifle and the frankly kind of boring grenade launcher. Both of them also turned the horror from how the base game did it relatively subtly and I think quite well on a first playthrough though the horror will not work if you don't have good headphones into being jumpscares and that sucks.

that's something I can't defend reddit for

1bd0ae  No.50126


That's a game where you build a murder mansion and attract dudes to kill and then eat. It's lacking some seriously necessary features for this kind of game like zoning and good traps. The victims have loads of health so that if ten monsters are stabbing them all at once, they still need to get stabbed twice (as in, by all). The only damaging traps in the game (floor spikes and wall grinder) also don't instantly kill them. It's not like "Evil Genius" or "Orcs Must Die!", you can't build a whacky network of traps to murder dudes so all you can really do is build murder closets, hope they work and inevitably have your mummies or skeletons finish the job when they fail. You'll be doing this pretty often in game (daily) so it's a lot of micromanaging units. This is in a game where units automatically pick up jobs based on what they're scheduled to do (like "RimWorld" and "Dwarf Fortress") so it gets pretty fucky. Especially because if victims see your minions they get spooked, pull out their phones and raise your suspicion level. They're called victims, they're supposed to be fuel, not your opponents. It's also a horrifically buggy mess of a finished (1.0 released) game. Kickstarter is a great way to fund games that will end up being buggy, unfinished messes. I hope it gets better but it is in a very sorry state right now. Feature light, bug heavy, translation problems (I assume, I think the devs are French), bad UI and bad balance in item costs and in damage. A total mess.

Jump scares are a good tool to use once or twice in a film or game. Natural jump scares like Doom causes are the best but the old cat jump scare is a underused tool. It allows you to break tension without giving away your monster which reduces over all tension.

Any one want to recommend a good action horror game? Action as in you're not some dope with a flashlight hiding in closets. But I also don't want Dead space's run and gun bullshit.

the map is always the same, the items are fairly random and quite honestly the game's AI isn't too great, basically you just need to keep running and it'd never get you doesn't matter on the monster, so having a human for it means you can't really get used to what the monster is going to do.

Well, it is a point and click game. There are apparently issues with license so the game isn't sold anymore through gog and steam (and one of the devs has said to just pirate). Good atmosphere, a bit of good ol' adventure game logic, and old game so there might be a few problems running it in modern systems, like it running at 1024x768, for example.

I didn't properly keep track of how much it took me, but I'd say it can be finished in about 4-5 hours, but I'm missing an extra story which I hear is shorter than the main story.

Scratches begins surprisingly mellow for the most part, and it follows its inspiration, Lovecraft, fairly well in that regard even while shit starts happening; although it gets a bit shaky at times when you near completion.

The game itself is done in the style of those weird Sherlock Holmes games in that you're in a 3D worldspace but have to click to move and interact, which does add tension but feels heavily dated and a bit clunky despite being a good homage to the old "creepy" mood the point and clicks of the 90s gave.

Definitely requires playing in the dark with good headphones.

I would argue that it obviously depends upon the game in question as there are legitimate horror games that do indeed install a sense of dread without much in the way of jumpscares. I'd say instead though that a horror game needs a decent narrative with well written characters before you can even think about anything else but the thing is, you've got to also got to get right gameplay that fits the kinda tone you wish to portray in your horror game.

I'm not really sure how I am supposed to play this game. I placed well over 15 hours in the game but I'm still on the first chapter. I chose hard mode which gave me a finite number of lives so I played really defensively while also trying to explore as much as I can. But the problem is that when you start exploring you'll eventually fill up your inventory no matter what so you just backtrack. It is such a pain to constantly backtrack to your main camp since it has the stove to protect you at night. I spend more time backtracking to base to drop stuff/preparing to move bases than actually finding new things.

STALKER is actually an FPS-RPG specifically an FPS-aRPG if you want to get technical when you sit down and think about it. You've got all the elements you'd expect, from faction relations to moral choices to multiple endings and even buff items.

ActionRPG doesn't indicate action gameplay it's a statement about how heavy the role-playing influence is. In a 'true' or 'full' RPG what a character can do is more influenced by his stats than by the player's skill, examples would be Deus Ex or classic CRPGs. In an actionRPG what a character can do is based on the player's skill almost exclusively (equipment also of course), examples would be Human Revolution, STALKER or Dark Souls. There's nothing superior or inferior about either type, they're just different approaches.

Yeh the term isn't perfect. It's also used to refer to Diablo 2 clones and even sometimes to classic 2D Zelda games. I was toying with going for RPG-light, lite or soft-RPG but that sounds too much like shitting on the games for not being 'real' RPGs.

With SF it's important to be explicit that's it's loose in terms of matching up to known science but is still speculative and thought through (Star Wars for example is not SF loose or strict, it's fantasy with lasers compared to Star Trek which is SF just loose SF).

I suppose I view it in a more literal sense. In GCCX I noticed they call a lot of games "action games" where in the west we have more specific terms for it like platformers for example.

Kind of, but when I apply the term to video games the meaning changes slightly. That's why point and click adventure games that have some excitement wouldn't be considered action. I'm not really sure how to explain it well enough, but as a general rule of thumb there has to be physical conflict and confrontation throughout the game. It all goes back to how broad the term is anyways and I could see arguments for calling point and click action. Also I didn't mean literally, but closer to literally than how you view the term.

Man, I know I'm late as fuck responding to this post, but I can't agree more with the assessment of Condemned 2.

Everything, and I mean everything in the first half was at the very least on par with, if not better than the first. They did so well up until literally immediately after the bear.

It's like it went from a legit horror game with a decent amount of love put into it to some shitty CoD clone because they couldn't be assed to think of roughly an hour's worth of scary shit.

Even nuhorror movie tier shit would've been better than the literal "press button to scream at ur enemies" shitfest they gave us at the end.

It's a direct contrast to the first game. The first game started off mildly spooky with some lame jump scares, but then became absolutely terrifying towards the end.

Condemned 2 on the other hand started off with some truly disturbing areas dealing with some disturbing depictions of unstable junkies in crackhouse apartments, or schizophrenia tier sections where you're not entirely sure if the MC is hallucinating or not, then immediately after the legitimately terrifying bear section it's like they gave up entirely and said "fuck it let's just make it like CoD, but with yelling really loud at some particularly underwhelming monsters, we're getting paid anyway".

I'd very much like to know the full history behind the development of Condemned 2 specifically because it should've been at the very least on par with the first.

>I fucking hate jump scares

For me it depends on the context.

Say you're built up to expect a jump scare, you have music, background hints, etc, and then it happens and you're spooked for about half a second only because of a peekaboo tier popup.

What I think is slightly better (as in marginally better) in terms of scares is when there's no blatant OOGA BOOGA cues given to raise the suspense a minute beforehand, and you're only given small background clues that you'd only notice if you're actually paying attention in order to build some actual sense of "oh fuck I'm being watched" before the boogeyman in question pops out at a most unexpected opportunity.

At least with the second option you still entertain jump scare plebs while mind fucking anyone who was paying attention the whole time.

There's nothing really much to talk about anon when it comes to horror other than what potentially makes good horror. As a few fags have pointed out when it comes to vidya across the board you either talk about blatantly awful crap or circlejerk about the same shit over and over again. We want quality but everything of quality has been discussed. Kind of why /mu/ died off. This is what stagnation looks like unfortunately.

Horror is a genre that is kind of only appeals to underagefags who shit their pants at shadows. If you factor in that the majority of this board are strelo/k/'s who have the motto of "If it bleeds we can kill it" who are more likely to hunt down monsters than be frightened by them then it's no surprise thread never took off. This is the type of place where if you had something like Slenderman appear the reaction would be "FIX BAYONETS!" and charge.

Then you also got what this >>78814 fag has said. we kind of don't have anything fresh to talk about.

it's the sad state of things really, I've tried to look for games for people to talk about but the fact of the matter is nothing looks even remotely interesting outside of many afew nice idea wrong execution.


you don't have to be scared of horror inorder to enjoy it, you're right though that the genre has turned into something like that because of fucking five guys and lies at freddies overwhelming autism. like fuck what happened to games with some level of intelligence to them like silent hill.

4fa0e8  No.79057


I think the problem is Hollywood and what horror films have become. It's not just vidya that suffers. They've turned horror from a genre dominated by Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick into a popcorn flick genre. You are bang on in that they lack intelligence as nothing makes you think anymore.

f47a44  No.79062


well that isn't entirely wrong, I think that films have had a much longer time frame before getting fucked by kikes so that there's always something decent coming out. video games are only ever going to be seen as toys for children and thus exactly what you've just said.

Best experience I have ever had was playing Doom on an empty server where it had completely glitched a multiplayer level. Everything about the atmosphere was spot on. The pitch black, flickering lights, doors opening and closing, complete mystery of what was happening. I had to investigate and try and solve the mystery of what had happened to this level but there was complete tension as I don't know what would be around the next corner. I had to advance carefully and cautiously in the hope I would not run into something nasty. I was worked up constantly expecting something to happen but then I got to the end and in reality nothing at all happened. Still a good experience.

It's like how a lot of horror have become generic action movies and throw everything they can at you constantly so you are never really truly caught off guard or have to work to keep your guard up. I think the best example I can give is the difference between Left4Dead 1 and 2. In the first Left4Dead game you could sneak past zombies and there was respites between engagements, giving you periods where you thought you were safe but in reality you weren't cause if you stopped paying attention for a moment you could easily be taken out. In the second game they went fully hollywood action flick and just threw waves after waves of zombies at you with no real rest between waves so the end result is you were constantly shooting never building any atmosphere up so you could never trick yourself into a false sense of security.

Multiplayer and horror do not mix. Human beings feel secure with other humans, isolation is most of the horror in horror. If you can talk to other people the tension eases, moreso if you can see them, moreso if they can help you. You can psyche yourself out and feel afraid but there are only hints of what could otherwise be horror in those kinds of games. The only horror a game can achieve is isolation and fear of the unknown, since fear of danger is entirely eliminated by nature of the simulation. Fear of the unknown is short-lived and also tends to be entirely foregone (especially when the antagonist is a Human, like you). Fear of isolation is all you can ask for and then bam, destroyed in multiplayer. Destroyed even in single-player when people are in constant voice chats.

I disagree with multiplayer. Horror can work with more than one player but how do you know if the person you are with is a monster or not? Think of the film The Thing. You need to work together to survive but in working together you also may be bringing about your doom.

Not really. I think it's more a case that it hasn't been done properly before. Most co-op games these days are just single player games with other people in them. If you design a game around cooperation to beat the game but introduce the element that you should work together but not turn your back it should make for some potentially good horror. Especially if your friend turns out to eat you alive.

Just because healthy people can function in the face of adversity doesn't mean they aren't scared shitless.

Recently, I have been playing through the Strange Man series which includes The Crooked Man, The Sand Man, The Boogie Man, and The Hanged Man.

I am currently on The Hanged Man. The game at first looks like an RPGMaker title but it was made with a different engine. It does come across as "click on everything" and I did have to use a walkthrough for certain parts in The Boogie Man but it is a fun series with likeable characters and various endings most of which are "wrong ends" with one correct and official happy end.

I really liked the recurring characters and their interactions and contributions to the next game. The third and fourth games involve voice acting from Youtube personalities such as ManlyBadassHero. They voices may seem a bit cheesy but they are enjoyable.

Also for free independent visual novels, I recently played and loved Trick And Treat. It is short but has multiple endings and you have to get all of the other endings before getting the true ending. I really liked the revelation about the two female characters.

FEAR 2 problems:

No dynamic lighting. Except in some specific areas. It never has impact on gameplay. Why?

AI is blatantly dumber

Controls are worse. Mouse movement feels worse.

Player cannot lean

No swimming anymore. You just walk on water for some reason.

Combat shotgun is practically worthless

No dual wielding

No health injections

Downgraded gore system

Sounds are worse

Combat doesn't feel as visceral or satisfying. There's no punch to anything.

Hard to tell how much health you have in the heat of battle.

Grenade timer is too long

AI is invincible while throwing grenades

Hit detection is very poor. Your bullets will regularly go through enemies without hitting them.

No sliding tackle

Not very spooky compared to original

Downgraded and very buggy physics

Boring art direction and lighting. Levels look flat and enemies are barely recognizable.

Walls have poor clipping

Enemies will completely miss or insta kill you seemingly randomly

No reflections, water reflections or mirrors. For some reason there's ONE mirror that works. Why?

No holstering

The weapons have a spread system instead of you controlling recoil

Some buggy animations. Especially the ladder climbing.

Annoying depth of field blur when aiming

Glass shattering looks worse. Once again due to downgraded physics

The story is scattered intel pieces you have to read

No volumetric smoke from gunfire

Enemy voices are just wimpy dudes

On the plus side:

You get to drive a mech for a little bit

The moveable cover system is interesting though under developed

The sniper rifle's nice

Flashlight never runs out of battery except when in spooky zone

The new one (Secret World Legends) has some crappy preset heads and faces.

I recall somebody mentioning long ago that some of the devs and writers had certain views on "beauty" and shit.

There are some complaints about the crappier character creation options compared to the old game on their forums, but they normally get ignored.

Fear 2 was when R34 Alma was getting pushed which incidentally was when it was getting worse. You don't fug the Alma. You headpat her

The fact that we can't get Burnouts pre the shitty Paradise City is a travesty.

At worst gore is just gross or unpleasant someone being reduced to chunks of meat is pretty standard fare. The threat of gore is worse, the fucker tied to the chair watching their friend get sliced and diced is going through more horror than the one being perforated.

Really for horror to work there has to be some element of anticipation or the unknown, its not enough that it's dark outside and there's a little girl covered in blood stood under a streetlight but then throw in that she's singing a song in an impossibly deep register in language you've never heard and things take on a different shade.

gore is everything up front

well, thats sounds like crap. watching your character going through the cinematics was always neat. But with those new premade faces, it would be dogshit.

Are there any other Horror MMOs out thre?

Besides TSW i only remember Dark Eden. There are some private servers around, these days.

Besides those two?

Hellgate London and Requiem: Memento Mori/Rise of the Reaver are the only ones I remember.

Aren't those both dead?

Hellgate has a fan sever called London 2038 and Requiem is still running, despite the fact that is almost completely deserted.

Any way to play on the old Secret World server?

or was it shut down?

So it's dead Jim?

Old Secret World is still running, its just difficult to access since the launcher will automatically patch to Secret World Legends.

But just google it and you can find ways around that.


Its dead in a sense, that if its just you these game are inaccessible because of the huge amount of teamwork grinding they need and you will not easily find other people in them.

However if you have a group of people that want to experience these old games simply for the flavor they give, then your group can still play them.

For what purpose?

Purple hairs in charge of Funcom that created NuSecret World push for their product of course.

Same reason why old Secret World doesn't get any of the new content that is created for NuSecret World.

Also some of the content from old Secret World has been cut from NuSecret World, since the Pruple hairs still haven't manged to rework it for the new combat system.

Director's Cut is not Director's Cut: Dualshock version. I played the former and it has the normal music.

I really liked TSW. Best story in any mmo. I just got tired of it after the autistic AIDS simon says gameplay Tokyo introduced. Then it somehow got worse from there.

Seems like a generic JRPG with only thing going for it is it's artstyle for me.
