Skribbl.io Gamenight Thread Anonymous 10/30/2021 (Sat) 21:04:54 Id: d704da No. 454623 [Reply]
WELCOME TO ANOTHER EDITION OF SKRIBBL.IO! Featuring your usual host! This thread will hold all of the upcoming Skribbl.io gamenights, so keep an eye on this once a week or so for updates! I will try to announce gamenights a few days in advance. >What is this It's like pictionary but on your browser. You can use your drawing tablet if you've got one. The 'words' you guess will all be vidya-related, using my new-and-improved Videogames wordlist! Long-time skribble anons familiar with my games will be pleased to know I've purged out a lot of unrelated junk and added more stuff! Don't like to draw? If you're good with video game knowledge, you can skip the drawing part and just guess what other anons are drawing! Fun for the whole family! Remember: Even if you're terrible at drawing, you can still have fun with everyone as long as you aren't misleading, I suppose >How do I play? The link will be to this website https://skribbl.io/ which is where the game lobbies are held. When a new game is hosted, there will be a special link, bringing you directly to one of our game lobbies. If the lobby is full, or if you enter the link wrong, you'll be sent to a normalfag's lobby - beware!!! You'll know it's one of ours if you see the word 'nigger' at least once followed by chink avatars. <Note! Many users have had issues in the past playing this with Pale Moon or if you happen to have Ad Nauseam enabled. Chromium-based browsers seem to work fine across the board. <Note 2.0! Sometimes the game may kick you out for reasons unknown! The host will never ban anybody unless you're spamming the chat, so if you get kicked out and you aren't being a nuisance, assume that it is a bug! That's all the introduction needed. Upon posting this thread, there will be a gamenight held ''tomorrow' at 9:00 PM GMT! This will be a very spooky gamenight since it is Halloween, so bring your best costumes! Hope to see you there!

>>490463 I think you got the wrong thread/board/website.
CK2 is the only Paradox game worth playing. CK3 sucks. DO NOT PLAY EU4, IT IS A HUGE WASTE OF TIME!!! if you take nothing else from this post, take this DO NOT PLAY HOI4, by the time you learn how to play you've already exhausted the enjoyment out of the game DO NOT PLAY STELLARIS, it is mostly repetitive busywork and has the same problems as above I've never played Victoria II so idk about that one so basically, CK2 is actually a cool, unique game. the rest are dogshit, don't waste your time, jack off instead

STARSECTOR THREAD I'm bored and I want to talk about it. But what is starsector? The best way I've heard it be described is mount and blade in space and I would say thats not to far off especially with some mods. It got a fairly big update a while back an now its just the wait for the next one. The story that was added in that update I have to say was actually pretty good an even actually spooky at some points if you can believe it, I really should give it another run through Good news is that the mods for this game are insane and fill the gap pretty nicely. So anons whats your favorite SHIP FACTION MOD FACTION HOW CUTE IS YOUR AI WAIFU? I tend to jump around with ships but I just love the onslaught. Nexeralin is one of my favorite mods for obvious reasons but for a mod faction this Yuri faction this fag makes is pretty impressive. At first I dismissed it as some shitpost anime mod but it seems like a genuine attempt to push the limits of what starsector can do. I look forward to its next update. Diable is also pretty neat. Or maybe you hate starsector? Feel free to call it, and myself, shit in this thread.

>>477032 >OR gain a buff to all your ships Well the 'Special Modifications' skill that allows the player to add a 3rd s-mod to their ships will be replaced with the new Technology skill 'Neural Link' that allows rapid/instantaneous command transfer between two ships if they both have a new hullmod called 'Neural Interface.' The extra s-mod skill has been moved to the top of the Leadership skill tree instead. Additionally, this next patch will change how advancing up skill tiers works (no more wrapping bullshit). Everything can be found in the patch notes, linked at the bottom of this post: >>475922
The new update has been released, features sensor ghosts, slipstreams and allegedly a fencing minigame on Eventide. https://fractalsoftworks.com/2021/12/10/starsector-0-95-1a-release/

Roguelikes, Roguelites and randomised content in general Anonymous 11/13/2021 (Sat) 02:37:20 Id: 1e5d08 No. 465323 [Reply] [Last]
Let's talk about those games, and to avoid any stupid arguments, let's use the terms roguelikes to talk about turn based randomly generated RPG games in vein of Rogues, and roguelites as games that were inspired off of them. >Roguelikes <I still like Crawl quite a lot though I have to play forks to not get mad at the amount of fun, interesting mechanics that were thrown out of it for no reason. <Is QUD worth playing? I know it's made by a bunch of faggots, but is the game still worth getting through? <Any fun dungeon crawler Roguelikes that do something actually interesting? >Roguelites <Golden Light is interesting, fucked up and fun. <Isaac is great but gets too repetitive for me by now. <Inscryption was great when it actually was a Roguelite, but the game is still good <I'm thinking of playing Hand of Fate again but don't know if it's really worth it <Streets of Rogue is very fun <Very interested to see if Darkest Dungeon 2 will be fun

Lineage 2 Anonymous 11/03/2021 (Wed) 03:12:04 Id: ba9b24 No. 457045 [Reply] [Last]
About 2 years ago I played Lineage 2 (on classic club) with about 10 of you guys and had a lot of fun. I was wondering if any of you bros were still around and might be interested in playing L2 on a different server? Not really sure how to find/pick a server, so any help in that regard would be awesome. Definitely would like to start somewhere fresher though, as the server we played on before seems to be very inflated and progressed now. Anyone want to play L2 again? Anyone still around from <KANGZ>?

Are video games dead in the water in terms of innovation? Anonymous 11/24/2021 (Wed) 22:00:55 Id: 21be79 No. 476323 [Reply] [Last]
When is the last time you played a video game that was a truly, genuinely NEW experience for you? What is the last video game you played that actually achieved something that was truly IMPRESSIVE in its newness and uniqueness? Have you played a single game in the past decade that didn't feel like something you'd already played (or seen) before? Anything at all?
62 posts and 35 images omitted.
What games really need is some depth and not the kind provided by a single autist crafting something bespoke for decades cos that can go sideways when the autist is a faggot like with Grimoire and DF but a big team (or very dedicated smaller one) layering over each other's ideas. I want a world that takes a few months of play to get a handle on, not some flimsy shit that's over or out of ideas in a few sessions, the speed at which one can hit endgame mechanics in most titles these days is disheartening. Games don't necessarily need innovation to impress just to be able to use the already available tools effectively, a good story/plot(s) goes a long way to making a game better as does not doing a lazy cut/paste job like so many survival games do where they all have items, huds and menus that are 1% different from each other, never mind all the Unity trash.

Am I the only one who's jaded about the fact that, with the almost complete death of physical games on PC platforms, it's resulted in a status where publishers can release any broken shlock they want to, and a community will form for the sole dedicated task of fixing the damn thing? Instead of doing the sensible thing, which is refusing to touch the game, and spending that time focusing on something else. RATHER THAN DOING THE DEVELOPERS WORK FOR THEM FREE OF CHARGE!

Ways to have fun cheating with emulators Anonymous 12/06/2021 (Mon) 13:24:40 Id: fb4d0e No. 485900 [Reply]
I'm on an old NES, SNES, and Game Boy nostalgia trip again. Played the old games so much that now I am looking for ways to have a little fun by using the emulator to cheat. A few ways I've found: - Use save states to change outcomes of RNG like the money making game in Zelda - Turning up the game speed an insane amount in RPGs like Dragon Warrior and Final Fantasy to blaze through the game What are some old 80's- and 90's-era console games that emulators are especially good for cheating or changing how the game is played?

>>485904 I never considered ROM hacks. I checked that YouTube vid and was lead to Zelda Outlands. Why do so many ROM hacks look like someone vomited and shat out a bunch of random sprites? I will look for a few more, but what I've seen looks like ass. I also played Outlands for a while and it sucks.
>>485917 Most ROMhacks suck, period. There are a few worth playing but you're going to have a harder time with games where the level design matters (unlike, say, Pokemon).
Dunno if it's cheating but playing Goldeneye and Perfect Dark with mouse and keyboard feels great and breaths new life into those games. Just look for 1964 gepd, it also unlocks 007/Perfect Dark difficult, so you can buff enemies' HP, aim and reacting to make up for the improved controls.

Other OPS are gone, so this is probably the last one until some other anon decides to make one. >What's the /gameclub/? It's a thread where we play a game and talk about it, who knows, maybe you'll even have f*n! GAME Actraiser is or was a franchise that is part side scrolling hack and slash reminiscent of Zelda II and part city builder reminiscent of Sim City that has you play as a deity who helps create civilization and kill monsters. The first game came out in Japan in 1990 making it one of the SNESs early flagship titles. A sequel was made in 1993 that is just pure hack and slash and a remake of the first came out in 2021 with more up to date graphics. The first game had a shit ton of censorship applied due to it being the 90s and on Nintendo like most games from Japan FUN FACT >The NA and Europe releases are significantly easier than the Japanese version of the game thanks to it having less traps in those versions and less enemy encounters in both action and simulation RESOURCES Share Thread: >>47877 Actraiser (NA Rom) https://cdromance.com/snes-rom/actraiser-usa/ Actraiser (JP translated) https://cdromance.com/snes-rom/actraiser-japan/ Actraiser 2 https://cdromance.com/snes-rom/actraiser-2-usa/ SNES emulators: https://www.emulator-zone.com/snes/ IMPORTANT SHIT Guides: Actraiser

>>484537 You play the role of your character
>>485012 >thinking it's descriptive It's a remnant of the early D&D based video games, and game design that evolved from those. Thus stats-heavy games get called RPG. No one with a brain would call Super Mario Bros an RPG, despite "role playing" as a high-jumping plumber.
>>484300 There are some times when you can accidentally not build the max number of buildings or fields because there is a total number of structures that can be built. Basically, minimize the number of bridges you build, but maximize the number of roads. Bridges can act against your max possible population. There's a guide on Gamefas that is surprisingly autistic about how to do this.

>>484518 >>484599 This is correct, but I'd say 2's story is nothing special, about the level of 5. 1 has a pretty good story with some great moments, but I suggest not going hard into grinding. Only finish the Disgaea 1's story, then go straight to Disgaea 5. As a 'game', 1 is mechanically worse in pretty much every single imaginable way because in most cases except the newest 6 which fucked up, a sequel of Disgaea improves things. A new way to grind, new system, QoL improvements, more classes, better balance, things like that. Those generally accumulate over releases to the point that after playing 5, 1 will seem like something's off because of all the subsystems that are not present or are there, but done in a worse way. The core gameplay is the same and very fun, but you'll feel the lack of QoL improvements which wouldn't happen if you started by release order. Basically: >if you care for story, go 1, then 5. 2, 4 are ok, but if you do them, do them before 5. 3 is optional just like 2 and 4 >if the story is not important at all for you, go straight to 5, or 1 into 5 to see how the series changed over time >whatever you choose, avoid Dimensions 2 regardless, no upsides there with the worst story, inferior mechanics to 5
>>484518 Sure. You can beat the story mode quick and you don't have to grind. Don't let any potential grinding dissuade you from giving them a go.

I am once again facing down the hardest boss in any Fromsoft game. The Face Slider screen. I found a nice face tutorial which turned out well. A little too well actually since I was planning on doing a Beast Claw playthrough. It would be nice to have a resource here on /v/ so that we can post presets for games so that anons won't have to stare at the character creator for 5 hours when they just want to play a game and they just don't want to play a default character or an abomination. Thead isn't just for Bloodborne or other From games but any game with an indejewsharacter creator Nioh 2, Dragons Dogma, Monster Hunter, whatever. You can even post things like Minecraft skins, or Terraria costumes here too. Although some quick Bloodborne help would be nice. I need someone wolfy looking.

Not sure if Anons remember, but there was a cool looking game that looked like Fist of the North Star but in a dark fantasy setting. After constant delays because of the dev sticking his dick in crazy, the game is finally being released today.
