/gameclub/ Thread - Super Castlevania IV Anonymous 09/20/2021 (Mon) 23:04:51 Id: 003559 No. 420546 [Reply] [Last]
Welcome to this week's gameclub thread! >What's the /gameclub/? It's a thread where we play a game, and talk about it, like an anime club. Try out something you might have never played, share your thoughts, compare scores, and have fun. GAME: You like Castlevania, don't you? This week's game is Super Castlevania IV for the SNES! Finally back, by popular demand. >Super Castlevania IV is a 1991 platform game developed and published by Konami. Released originally for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, it has been re-released multiple times, including for the Super NES Classic Edition. Super Castlevania IV features expanded play control, 16-bit graphics featuring Super NES's Mode 7, and a soundtrack featuring new pieces and arrangements based on previous Castlevania music. Following the same setting as Castlevania on the NES, the game takes place in 1691 Transylvania, where the vampire hunter Simon Belmont must defeat the vampire Dracula. The game received critical acclaim with some calling it one of the greatest video games of all time. (via Wikipedia) >Super Castlevania IV is, story-wise, a remake of the first game in the series. Set in the year 1691, the game casts the player in the role of Simon Belmont, a vampire hunter armed with a powerful whip, on a quest to defeat the evil Count Dracula in his castle. Despite the identical plot, the six castle stages have different layouts and themes; also, five initial stages that depict Simon's advancement towards the castle through various environments have been added. >The gameplay consists of traversing timed, linear platform stages, defeating enemies with the whip or sub-weapons that require collecting hearts and can be found by destroying parts of the scenery. Simon's stand-out ability in this installment are eight-directional attacks with his whip, which allow him, among others, to damage enemies standing below and above him. Holding out the whip will block enemy attacks. Simon can also latch his whip on special grappling points to swing over pits and obstacles. Game progression is saved by passwords given to the player after a stage has been completed. Visually, the game uses hardware "Mode 7" effects such as parallax scrolling, rotating rooms, and pseudo-3D objects in some locations. (via Moby Games) FUN FACT: Many of the bosses in the game are named humorously, like Puwexil (lix ew up), Koronot (ton o rok), and the lovely dancing duo Fred Askare & Paula Abgoul.

>>421743 I think the basic idea is that they're glass cannons. They're immortal and they gain all sorts of shapeshifting and mind control powers but they can be taken out with a well placed shot. >Basically vampires are vulnerable to anything that would kill a regular person To be fair most of the legends also specify that pokey implements are only effective against very specific critical places, like the heart or the groin, and otherwise they don't work at all. Same way with dismemberment. You either have to take off the head or completely dismember the vampire or you're just wasting your time. Some legends further state that weapons against vampires have to be blesses or be wielded by a pious person to have true effect. That was used as a plot point in one of the Hammer Dracula films where a fallen priest and an agnostic are trying to kill Dracula and even though they had managed to stake him it didn't take, to their horror.

Deltarune containment thread Anonymous 09/21/2021 (Tue) 23:21:35 Id: e53856 No. 421351 [Reply] [Last]
Deltarune chapter 2 just dropped, so this thread is for that. Reposting the header from the last thread as well. Six years ago today, Undertale was released. As per the Gamergate thread, they said we could have a discussion about it. >Sans is a fictional character created by Toby Fox for the 2015 role-playing video game Undertale. While normally a comic relief character and NPC, he also becomes the de facto final boss if the player chooses to complete the "genocide route" and destroy the game's race of monsters. His name is based on the Comic Sans font, which is used for most of his in-game dialogue. The character was praised by critics for his dialogue and boss fight, which is considered to be the most difficult in the game. His popularity with fans inspired several user-created mods and other types of projects. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) https://twitter.com/tobyfox/status/1438331420154368003?s=19 I like the game, there, I said it.

Parents in China laud rule limiting video game time for kids >Li Zhanguo’s two children, ages 4 and 8, don’t have their own smartphones, but like millions of other Chinese children, they are no strangers to online gaming. >If my children get their hands on our mobile phones or an iPad, and if we don’t closely monitor their screen time, they can play online games for as long as three to four hours each time,” he said. >Like many other parents, Li is happy with new government restrictions that limit children to just three hours weekly of online gaming time — an hour between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday most weeks. >The restrictions, which took effect earlier this month, are a tightening of 2019 rules that banned children from gaming overnight and limited them to 90 minutes most weekdays. >Experts say it’s unclear if such policies can help prevent addiction to online games, since children might just get engrossed in social media instead. Ultimately, they say, it’s up to parents to nurture good habits and set screen time limits. >The new rules are part of a campaign to prevent kids from spending too much time on entertainment that communist authorities consider unhealthy. That also includes what officials call the “irrational fan culture” of worshipping celebrities. >The technology restrictions reflect growing concern over gaming addiction among children. One state media outlet has called online games “spiritual opium,” an allusion to past eras when addiction to the drug was widespread in China. >Adolescents are the future of the motherland, and protecting the physical and mental health of minors is related to the vital interests of masses, and in cultivating newcomers in the era of national rejuvenation,” the Press and Publications Administration said in a statement, alluding to a campaign by Chinese President Xi Jinping to cultivate a healthier society for a more powerful China. >Government reports in 2018 estimated that one in 10 Chinese minors were addicted to the internet. Centers have sprung up to diagnose and treat such problems. >Under the new regulations, the responsibility for ensuring that children play only three hours a day falls largely on Chinese gaming companies like NetEase and Tencent, whose wildly popular Honor of Kings mobile game is played by tens of millions across the country. >Companies have set up real-name registration systems to prevent young users from exceeding their game time limits, and have incorporated facial recognition checks that require users to verify their identities. >In some cases, companies will do sporadic facial recognition checks while people are playing, and they’ll be booted out of the game if they fail. >Regulators also ordered gaming companies to tighten examination of their games to ensure they don’t include harmful content such as violence. >And they've set up a platform that allows people who hold Chinese ID cards to report on gaming companies they believe are violating restrictions.

>>396312 It's not "pixels look better on CRT". It's "pixels look better when they're tailored to your display". Text renderers these days do this automagically. Make a screenshot and zoom in on some text. Chances are you'll see that the character glyphs aren't just shades of grey, but also have some reddish on the left side, and blueish on the right. If you take a screenshot on a smartphone, you'll see a different pattern instead. Rotate your phone and the pattern will rotate accordingly.

Am I the only one who feels the Steam Deck was announced too early? Anonymous 08/31/2021 (Tue) 01:34:37 Id: bd577b No. 403213 [Reply] [Last]
The Steam Deck was announced too early in my opinion. Yes it was smart of them to basically ride off the disappointment of the Nintendo Switch OLED, and any smart business would've likely done the same. However most people are gonna will likely have to wait till 2022 for their device, this in turn will make people who can't wait pay over double maybe even triple the price for a new or used Steam Deck. I'm hoping that Valve is able to sort everything out before December or at least delay the December units to early 2022, mainly so they can get their supply in order so they can ship out as many units as possible. However another another issue Valve has is "hype flow", I'm sure I don't need to explain the concept of "hype flow", but I'll do it anyway. Normally companies like Nintendo and Capcom as an example, hold back information in order to ramp up interest over time, and make sure people don't forget about the game, by keeping their attention as long as possible. It's why Smash Bros sells as well as it does, because normalfags are always constantly guessing and speculating information about the game, thus keeping the game in the spotlight and in turn keeping it relevant. That said the Steam Deck isn't a game like say Smash Bros or a VS game where you can hold back information to get people more excited for the product, it's a portable PC with better performance than anything on the market, for a much lower price. We basically already know everything about the Steam Deck, despite the launch being more than six months away for most people who are gonna try and wait till after the Holidays to get one. Launch games won't be anything special either, since it's just going to be everything available on PC. I don't see third party developers or even Valve themselves taking advantage of the extra features of the Steam Deck via Steam Input at launch. Support for the unique functions of the device, such as touch, motion, trackpads, R4/R5, etc. will likely come a year after the Steam Deck has launched, and will likely be a niche market unless Valve makes a Steam Controller 2 or a hollow version of the Steam Deck made so you can take advantage of the unique feature set of the Steam Deck on a traditional PC, which is fine, but not something that'll happen during the first year of the Steam Deck's lifespan. In any case, I think Valve's biggest issue is one of supply, they clearly can't meet the demand for the device, and have basically admitted as much by saying that "they would like competition in the space". However even with all these problems, the Steam Deck will likely be the biggest item of the Holiday season and beyond. That said, if they're able to over come said logistics, they'll likely revolutionize the handheld gaming space into something completely different. However I can see the hype dying down come Q2 2022 when people start getting upset over the lack of supply, from Valve not being able to meet the demand, therefore diminishing said demand in the process. Closing out, I'd like to ask /v/ this, "Do you think the Steam Deck should've been announced later in the year? or was taking advantage of Nintendo's incompetence the best way to help promote the Steam Deck to the masses".

So far this is the only actual footage I've seen of the Steam Deck running games. I feel like Valve is dropping the ball hard on marketing the Deck, there's obviously a lot of interest as many of the hands-on videos have millions of views but they aren't capitalizing on that. Normalfags really love those flashy trailers and showcase videos, product launches usually have several of those months leading up to release but all I've seen Valve do is make an honestly bland and uninteresting video only uploaded to their YouTube channel.

>>421192 The year is 2025 and wuflu restrictions and an emu invasion have turned Australia into a hellscape. Jab deniers have fled into the badlands, surviving by organizing raids on the cities, which are being kept afloat by the UN. You and your bro are part of a raiding group which gets massacred at the start of the game, leaving you the only survivor. To honor the wishes of your mate and his hobby of deadlifting boulders, you go on an aussie style pilgrimage to the most vulgar places on the map, where you lift boulders that you then carve eulogies of your teammates into. Whenever you do this for the first time, you gain matrix or australian style superpowers. From that point on gameplay varies between looting (and later raiding) cities and fighting your way through hostile wildlife to reach pilgrimage locations. After each eulogy you gain new or upgraded superpowers and the world becomes a bit more corrupted and more difficult. It starts with people slightly glitching every now and then (e.g. skipping animation frames to instantly attack or recover) to wildlife and certain people transforming into glitchy monsters all the way to the environment itself becoming corrupted. The corrupted gives you cryptic hints about the plot, for example voicelines from monsters or partial messages that appear on the walls after finishing a eulogy. Beer is a precious resource because it quenches thirst and also reduces corruption temporarily, which is necessary for some puzzles. Later in the game it is revealed only people of a certain faith turn into glitch monsters. Near the end of the game you stock up supplies in a large raid against Newcastle and in a cutscene try to cross Australia through the desert. Your car is destroyed in a particularly strong bout of corruption and you have to fight your way out of the longest area of the game until you reach a warp zone that brings you all the way to Queensland. There the difficulty really starts to spike as you encounter new types of corruption monsters, and glow niggers start showing up trying to get rid of you any way they can. The final location of the game is Mount Coom, where you're trying to (lift and) lay down the eulogy for your bro. The place is swarming with all types of enemies and the geometry is non euclidean and will test all your abilities as aussie shitpost god. As you lift a giant boulder withing the depths of Mount Coom you are greeted by your mate who reveals himself to be an avatar of a low tier overseer of the world, which is a long ongoing simulation The same avatar also lifted the ancient rock in pic 2. The pilgrimage sites acted as terminals to control the simulation, and the eulogies messed it up, in the hope that a corrupted simulation would get your mate's superiors to fix the simulation which gone had gone out of balance long ago due to a rogue program called Jews.exe. The final boss fight is an entity merged out of every instance of corruption and you win by shitposting at it and pissing it off, gradually baiting it into destroying the world.This forces the lizardmen to reset the world to the last possible point in which the disappearance of the world destroying corrupted program wouldn't cause problems, 1945. Basically, the goal of the game is lifting rocks to make the holocaust happen

>>421206 >>421441 Pretty nice, had myself thought of something akin to God Hand except it's Zyzz's journey to become the sickest cunt. With him being brought back to life by the simulation reset and starting his journey in Russia where a babushka gives him his past memories back and eventually leads him to Mount Olympus to recover his lost gains. Meeting the original sickest cunts along with learning from them to eventually go to conquer Australia. Starting at Chinaman's Knob (where he starts a war with the chinks) and fighting the final boss at Mount Coom to reclaim his throne. Each mountain represents a boss fight. Along the journey you actually see him physically become stronger, not just having him pick up magical powers and weapons he can pull out of his ass. With a secret ending if all steroids are picked up but never used and a bad ending if you pick up and use every single one that exists in the world. Much like the dialogue, factions and enemies, even the soundtrack and environment is a virtual shitpost with things like the pool in Australia that was a shitpost about a politician(?) that drowned at sea. >webm A point-and-click adventure with a broad set of dialogue options to shitpost at animals, but all the animals just hiss at you. No anthropomorphic animals or magical animal-talking senses, they just make animal noises in response and your only real clues as to what they want to say is what they physically do. With these actions being what an animal would actually realistically do, such as the distinction between when a dog is barking at you while wagging its tail in comparison to a dog that is barking at you while not. Combining items and using them lets you do a couple of gags, but overall it is largely for actual progression. Player has a life value, which can be recovered but remains hidden, as does the damage value animals deal if they try to fuck you up. Trying to get killed by a stingray instead plays three hours of unskippable dolphin porn that replays (also unskippable) if you don't press "Continue" within 30 seconds once the dolphin porn is over.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS INVESTIGATING ACTIBLIZZ LMAO https://archive.is/KSG1k >Activision Blizzard is now the subject of a "wide-ranging" Securities and Exchange Commission investigation into its handling of employee complaints about sexual misconduct and discrimination in the workplace. According to The Wall Street Journal, the SEC, an agency of the US government, is asking for notes recorded during board meetings since 2019, the files of six former employees, and separation agreements from this year. >The SEC has also subpoenaed several of the company's executives, including CEO Bobby Kotick, and wants records of Kotick's communications with other company executives about sexual harassment and discrimination complaints. >The investigation adds to the pressure that Activision Blizzard is already facing in the wake of a discrimination and sexual harassment lawsuit filed against it by California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing in July. That lawsuit was expanded in August when the DFEH claimed that Activision was actively hampering its legal action, including by shredding documents related to "investigations and complaints" and hiring an anti-union law firm to audit its internal policies. >Formed in 1934 in the wake of the infamous Wall Street crash of 1929, the SEC's primary mission is "to protect investors; maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets; and facilitate capital formation," its website says. It wields a very big stick, with functions and responsibilities ranging from credit ratings and information technology to equal employment opportunities, international affairs, ethics, and inclusion of women and minorities. >An SEC spokesperson said in an email to PC Gamer that the agency "does not comment on the existence or nonexistence of a possible investigation." An Activision Blizzard representative confirmed that an investigation is underway, however. >"The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is conducting an investigation concerning the Company’s disclosures regarding employment matters and related issues, and has issued subpoenas to the Company and several current and former employees that seek information related to this," a spokesperson said. "The company is cooperating with the SEC."

>>421760 This is one example of how a normalfag who has no experience with gaming fall into gaming with shit games. This is an example of the "wider audience" that execs want to capture. Other normalfag example is their friends are playing so they buy the game too.
>>421824 What was that game called again? I forgot.

>>420320 >and their sequels are a weird mashup of GTA, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, and Mad Max. When you say it, it sounds even cooler than it is in the actual game. Daxter is supposed to be kind of annoying, that's the point. It's supposed to be funny to see him annoying everyone around him. Also, the really weird part is if you go and watch Doogie Houser and realize that the actor who plays his annoying best friend is doing exactly the same character when he plays Daxter. Daxter's human form even looks kind of like he did in that show, granted, in elf form. Jak slowly becoming less of a tryhard edgelord is his arc in Jak II and 3. I think Jak X hits a decent balance with it. >>420350 Ratchet and Clank largely stop being interesting characters after their first game, which is the only one where they have any significant character development or anything that makes them interesting beyond comedy. That said, they are a lot funnier than Jak & Daxter, and their supporting characters, like Qwark, are more interesting than Jak's supporting characters. Sly actually has pretty cool stuff going on in all his games. And his supporting characters and villains are pretty cool. Maybe Sly is the coolest.
>>420584 Yes but Ratchet and Clank and Sly Cooper didn't have sex elves for supporting characters like Jak did.
>>421808 But Ratchet and Clank had sexy robot girls and Sly had I guess Carmelita Fox if you're into that.

>>421146 >would someone elaborate? I'd like to know too before I fuck up something on my computer.
>>421146 Yeah, as it turns out, different manufacturers follow their own standard for modular cables, meaning if you have a thermaltake power supply that shits the bed, and you buy seasonic, none of the cables from thermaltake will work. This is the fucked up part, you'll notice how the cables that plug into the power supply are keyed specifically to only plug into particular spots, well the pci power cables are specially keyed so that you cannot physically plug in a cable from a different brand than seasonic, pretty much idiot-proofing you from killing your graphics card. However, the 24-pin motherboard cable is not specially keyed, and as I found out my computer just wouldn't power on at all with the old cable, and it gets worse, the power cable for plugging into hard drives either via 4-pin molex or sata power have a 6 pin connector that plugs into the power supply, THIS IS NOT KEYED DIFFERENTLY BETWEEN BRANDS, so the cable perfectly plugs into the power supply between thermaltake and seasonic, the problem? THEY MOVED THE GROUND WIRE TO A DIFFERENT PIN You literally would not know the difference unless you compared the occupied pins of the connectors, and god help you if you fucking mix them up because it's not like the cables SAY "seasonic" or "thermaltake" on them. So yes, if you buy a different power supply you ABSOLUTELY have to use ALL the cables that were supplied with it. Now you might be asking yourself, "surely they included some kind of warning for something that could permanently damage your hardware!" Oh yeah, sure they did, in the user guide which despite being fairly thick, only has 4 pages in english, just inside the cover is the table of contents, the next page has an index and in bold font just slightly larger than the other headers, it reads "WARNING! IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION" with some bullet points of some very obvious stuff like >never open power supply, high voltage shocky heart stoppy >do not jam dick into fan grill >do not block ventilation and NOW the really important warning >USE ONLY Seasonic modular cables provided with power supply unit. These bullet points all being the same font face as everything else in the index, not bold, not highlighted, no underline. Apparently that is their idea of sufficient warning. My graphics card literally came with a postcard with a bolder warning that there's no software cd included, a big square of paper with huge red bold font saying STOP
