Trickster Online

Since we've seen most of the content in PSU we're moving to the second most voted for MMO from the original thread, Trickster Online. Unlike with PSU, we've got a few choices for a Private Server. playtrickster.com <- This one seems the most professionally run and active. Also offers the chance to play a class other servers don't with the caveat that it is half-broken and you have to play on a specific server. http://pandato.co/ <- This one has a rebirth system where you can raise your max level and several balance changes. The devs state 90% of the content they've made for their server is for reborn characters so I'd recommend against this. lifeto.co <- Seems damn near abandoned, apparently has the fewest changes from the original game beside allowing you to grind for cash shop stuff. None of these seem to have a cash shop, apparently it was P2W horseshit that ruined the original game. Otherwise plays similar to Ragnarok IE click to move, hotbar skills, etc. classes are more set in stone, no starting as a novice and then levelling to get your first job but you still have build choices in what skills you improve and magic classes specifically have to choose what elements they can use with other elements being locked out based on the choice. Figure we'll choose a server then start playing once everyone is on the same page.

Merged to Death: Vicarious Visions gets absorbed into Blizzard.

They are most known now for their Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 remake. They've done a lot of games that people probably don't talk about much like the long span of them doing just Guitar Hero and Skylanders and a bunch of movie licensed games and some odd stuff here and there. They've been under Activision since 2005 but now they are getting the merger order which means they are off the next Tony Hawk game. Not sure what everyone's opinions are on the remake but it was at least better than the downward spiral that series was going toward. I would say they are going back to their movie licensed roots and are going to be forced to make James Cameron Avatar games but I think Ubisoft are the ones doing that so they could get that lucasfilm licensed to make open world Star Wars games. Any hope for the studio or should we write them off as dead?

Night Drive Video Games

So I was watching John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness, which is an amazing horror movie by the way worth the watch, and I came upon the scene where the main characters are driving in the middle of nowhere through the dead of night. The scene perfectly encapsulated that feeling of driving in an unfamiliar rural area which is a feeling of uneasy fear of the unknown coupled with this strange sense of comfort. I realized how underutilized night driving is used in video games and how much potential there is for a horror driving game. The few games that tackled this concept that I have found are decent. Beware, Titan Chaser and Dead End Road with Beware being definitely the best one out of the three despite the game being more a proof of concept and kind of short. Titan Chaser is (((early access))) and has a terrible voice actor for your character that won't shut the hell up but once you turn her voice off the game can be very atmospheric. You have a cassette in your car which contains some old 1950s radio dramas and listening to that while driving through dense fog searching for a gigantic Titan lurking in the distance gives off some great vibes.

The tentacles of Tencent reach Klei Entertainment

They are the developers behind the games of Don't Starve, Shank, and Mark of the Ninja and Tencent has a majority stake in them now. Now it kind of makes sense for them with the deal since they say that a majority of players are from China along with North America. Though, I have to laugh at this "reassurance" from Jamie "Bigfoot" Cheng, company founder, that the employees at Klei Entertainment will maintain “full autonomy” and they do not expect “significant operational changes” due to the acquisition. Seriously, dude? We have a list of companies that aren't even working with and doing business in China that bend the knee without hesitation. What makes him think they won't have some sort of control over them now and once they finally pay off their loan to buy them fully later? Not a fan of Don't Starve but I did like Shank and Mark of the Ninja and am sad at this decision. More so because it's another notch in the China takeover of the game industry. I feel like a ton of studios are blinded by the potential market of the Chinese audience instead of the consequences if you don't cater to their everyone whim. They are the SJWs of Asia but they actually have money to burn unlike our lot festering on twitter. They're also big pirates and breakers of copyright. My mindset, if I was doing business in China, I'd only give them crap gacha games to siphon money from them and keep the good games for everywhere else. Treat them like the piggy banks that they are. I wouldn't do business in China personally, until there is a drastic change in their regime. Is there any way to stop this Chinese invasion because we're going to lose our culture if they keep up this pace?

Cyberpunk 2077 apology- Our Commitment to Quality

Didn't think we'd be talking about this game again but they must've realize how much they fucked up they had to make an apology video. I could probably ding it because it looks like he's reading from a script, but given how those working for CDPR shot their lips off from the hip and made the situation worse during the month of release of Cyberpunk 2077, I can kind of understand the approach. Marcin Iwinski, co-founder of CD Projekt Red, lays out I guess some of the issues. It was his and the boards decision that was at fault for the early release and not the developers which we already knew. The scope of the project was huge they wanted to go big on PC and adjusted it for "old-gen". Still using old-gen even though it's actually current gen and what most people can get available with how the next-gen is limited in stock and there really isn't a next-gen update available yet. Anyway, in-game streaming on old-gen didn't show issues at first but with each new addition, they had to adjust and thought they'd make Day Zero update which they did not. PC version wasn't perfect version of game but are proud of it. Because of working from home during covid and the Day Zero update, the console review keys were released on the 8th instead of early like PC (and not because "they were hiding how bad the console version was" is what I think he's implying). Update plans: Longterm support for Cyberpunk 2077 haven't changed. Next update in 10 days, and a significant update in the following weeks. They'll focus on the most important fixes and release the free DLCs after. The next gen update will release somewhere in the second half of 2021. It seems like they're trying to rebuild their reputation after wasting all those 25 years of trust built. With some of the schedule laid out (with no dates though), it's pretty clear they needed another 4-6 months to finish Cyberpunk 2077. I would've also dropped PS4 and Xbone versions and just aimed for a next gen release that might've come out a little later than PC version. It's a first step but we'll see if any other problems occur down the line.

Gabe Newell:"We definitely have games in development that we're going to be announcing"; considering moving Valve to New Zealand

https://archive.is/unFaC >Valve boss Gabe Newell has been hanging out in New Zealand for the better part of a year now, after deciding in March 2020 to extend a ten-day holiday into an indefinite hideout from the COVID-19 pandemic. (One of the nice things about being a billionaire is that you can do that sort of thing when the urge strikes.) The longer he stayed, the more he seemed to like it: In October 2020, he mused about the possibility of relocating game developers—maybe including some portion of Valve—to the country. >In a new interview with 1 News, Newell said again that there's "strong interest" among some Valve employees about making the move, although he added that there's no plan in place to start bringing people over just yet. >"You don't want to uproot a bunch of families, have them come here, and then the situation gets a bunch better and then they have to turn around and go back," he said. "So that's why getting a better handle on how long the epidemic is going to be affecting our operational decisions is important to that." >Something else that could be moved to New Zealand, Newell said, are major esports tournaments, including The International and CS:GO Majors. Last year's International and Rio Major were postponed because of the pandemic and there's still no date on either, as it remains impossible to hold in-person events in most of the world. But it's "a realistic possibility" that such a thing could be pulled off in New Zealand, where the pandemic is under control, "and it gets more realistic all the time." >"I literally could not, if I had to guess when it would be safe to do an in-person tournament anywhere [else] in the world, it would be very hard for me to say that—whereas I think, with a lot of confidence, we'd be able to plan for that in New Zealand," he said. "Hopefully the procedures can be put in place so that becomes feasible—like, you know, this is what the quarantine would look like." >Newell also touched on the topic of Half-Life 3 (or, more accurately, the topic of why he refuses to discuss the topic of Half-Life 3) and "Citadel," an apparent codename for something that may or may not be in the works at Valve. Despite his refusal to actually talk about either, he did confirm that Valve has new projects in the works, and maybe more importantly a renewed enthusiasm for game development driven by the success of Half-Life: Alyx. >"We definitely have games in development that we're going to be announcing. It's fun to ship games," he said. "Alyx was great. To be back doing singleplayer games, that created a lot of momentum inside the company to do more of that."

GPD Win 3 confirmed for $830 and $970 dollars

Not sure if anyone noticed but for people with jobs the GPD Win 3 has been confirmed to be launching soon with a price point of basically 800 to a 1,000 bucks. For those unfamiliar the GPD Win is basically a super small laptop turned into a gaming machine and is really for a niche market of gamers who want to play absolutely everything on the go. There's also a dock accessory basically replacing the Switch as soon as Yuzu/Ryujinx becomes usable. The main concern for me is battery life but I've heard that the GPD Win Max has about 3-4 hours of heavy gaming and charges in about 2 hours, which doesn't sound so bad considering that it's basically the same amount as the Switch Lite, but we'll see how it goes. https://archive.vn/GvhbM

BOTW and the Open world meme

I was thinking and BOTW was such a fucking joke of a game that failed at both being a Zelda title and being an open world game. This is going to be controversial but Skyrim did some things better and before anyone chimps Skyrim is a fucking shitty game but it does or has the bare minimum of what a Open world should have over BOTW >Actual dungeons not shitty shrines >Real side quests granted not that Skyrim does it well >Weapons that aren't made of plaster and are repairable >Black smiths > Actual objectives to truly do in the world other then find seeds and shrines >Fucking Skyrim has better enemy variety BOTW is a prime example next to Farcry of what's wrong with open world titles and what really bothers me is that BOTW has a insane attention to detail and it's environmental/world interactions are leagues above Skyrim yet despite that it does fuck all with it. What does say that one of Todd's "masterpieces" is able to the bare minimum better or even has it in the first place? This a game with such unbelievably great framework and foundation that just fucking blundered and is really the definition of tech demo.

Final Fantasy 5 thread!

I have been playing Final Fantasy ever since I was very little, having previously only beat the 1st game on an emulator and having nearly every mainline game 1-10. I have recently beaten my second Final Fantasy game, FF5 on the PS2 via the Anthology duology. The job system completely hooked me, and with much help from the wiki, I defeated Exdeath. Now, I am doing a few new playthroughs with only certain classes, which speaks to how much replay value this entry has over the games that came before and after it. I find FF5 to be one of the least-talked about games in the series. When I look for fanart, there's not much of it, and not much love either. It's a real shame. So, I thought I'd make a thread about this hidden gem. What are your favorite classes? Bosses? Strategies? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

The Fall of the Angry Video Game Nerd

For the few that cared about AVGN back in the day, it seems like Mike Matei has left the channel to focus on his own streaming. This should be weird since they previously announced that James and Mike Monday was on break and would come back in 2021. That doesn't seem to be the case. AVGN hasn't been good in a while. If I had to guess at what point, it's somewhere before that movie where he enjoyed getting cucked with a black guy kissing a white bitch. There might be a few good episodes after that movie but those are few and far between. He also sponsors the hell out of all his videos because I don't think he uses patreon. If you check the recent reviews, it seems he has fallen further. He used to get at least 1 million views day one for his reviews but now he doesn't even hit that anymore unless it's one of the more recognizable games. This might be the third fall of AVGN at this point: 1st being the movie, 2nd with the screenwave cancer with ryan, justin and Kieren, and the 3rd being this. Will James survive since he does have 2 daughters to take care of? Is this a sign that the Angry video game reviewer shtick has come to an end?

I feel like there hasn't been enough news in the game industry that hasn't been about modern politics too much nor any talks of more minor releases, sales data, and other overlooked aspects in the games industry during these past few years so I made this thread that I thinking it should've been made long since made. Don't delete this mark, I know it belongs in GG but I just want don't want to have it mixed up with political drama.

Phantasy Star Universe Clementine

For anyone who's interested. We're starting another MMO with /v/. This time it's the PSU Clementine private server. The game is real easy to setup and get into. You don't even need to register on the website. We already have a couple of anons playing so come join us. https://psu-clementine.net/community/index.php?/client_download/ Download the client. You don't need to download the patch files unless you've had a previous client installation. Create a new folder and extract files to the new folder. Launch the clementine installer in the folder. After installing, before pressing play click the icon in pic-related to customize your resolution because the default resolution is 720p windowed. When making a username the first time add _n at the end of it when you sign in and it'll make the account. Then you'll be prompted to go back to the title screen and sign back in but this time remove the _n from your username. Also the game supports controllers.

Ace Combat Thread

Which of the games have you been playing? There was just an announcement for a bunch of skins for AC7 with the game also confirmed to have sold 2.5 million copies, which I'd consider a huge achievement for the franchise. There's also a 25 page Famitsu article that was made for the anniversary and was translated by some autists, which can be found here in parts: https://www.skywardfm.com/ace25-famitsu-special-part-1 The article goes into detail about different aspects of the series from its appeal to fans, unique aspects of each game, and the histoy of its development. What is Ace Combat? Ace Combat is a series of arcade-y dogfighting sims where you pilot a multitude of fictional and real planes in various conflicts in the alternate world of Strangereal. This game isn't like other flight sims such as DCS world or EF2000, in that it doesn't strive for an absurd amount of realism in its flight model. Instead, Ace Combat is all about fun. You will unleash hundreds of missiles, shoop da whoop your lasers, and execute absurdly high G turns. It is a series known for its anime plotlines, giant superweapons, amazing music, and gameplay that never gets old. So get out there and make Belka proud.

The dumbing down of fighters and video games in general

Games are STILL being dumbed down. Take Guilty Gear for instance, the new game has characters with gigantic hitboxes, much slower play, no instant kills (high risk high reward moves that can't be comboed into most of the time that kill your super meter if you miss), if you combo too much you break the stage's wall which sends both players back into neutral, yet most moves now do shitloads of damage in a series where you already did shitloads of damage. I mean I don't even see it as half-bad, but it's clearly dumbed down. This happened with street fighter where the whole flow of the game is so fucking slow that it actually fucks up your combos and every time you knock a fucker down the game just stops for like three seconds while the other player plays rock paper scissors on what you're gonna do next. This even effected King of Fighters 14, where the hard as ass inputs remained the same yet paradoxically the game became HARDER because they tried to slow it down and fucked up the walk speed to a crawl in a game where you're supposed to unga bunga the fuck out of the other guy with precise and practiced combo inputs, so now you just have a bunch of useless characters with inputs that make using them infeasible unless you're one of the basic bitches like Terry or Kula that have street fighter style inputs or Oswald who has hitstops so big between his hits you could fit a 400 pound ass between them. In fact the professional players only used these types of characters in tournaments. You've seen it elsewhere with RPGs or shooters, overbalancing and overthinking when the original ethos of these games was "we made shit that looked cool and it happened to be fun". Now these people have infested games with "design" over function, "marketing" over passion. It's blazing fucking bullshit.

VIDYA DOGME 21 For the future of video games to be saved, strict rules on what to do, or rather what not to do, when creating video games must be established: 1) If anyone should make a first person video game where the player's control over the view is restricted at any point, let them be anathema. 2) If anyone should make a video game with long sections where the player does nothing but walk and listen to characters talk, let them be anathema. 3) If anyone should make an open world game and place unimportant towers, occupied by generic enemies, all over the map, let them be anathema. 4) If anyone should make a first person shooter where the player is forced to use iron sights because randomized bullet spread makes firing from the hip unreliable, let them be anathema. 5) If anyone should make a video game with automatically regenerating health, except for rare and special circumstances, let them be anathema. 6) If anyone should make a video game with difficulty that scales according to the player's performance, let them be anathema. 7) If anyone should make a video game where running and/or climbing and/or jumping drains stamina, except for in rare and special circumstances, let them be anathema. 8) If anyone should make a non-stealth oriented video game that uses ambient noises (not to be confused with ambient music) in place of music, except for in rare and special circumstances, let them be anathema. 9) If anyone should deliberately make video game characters unattractive for the sake of making unattractive people feel less insecure, let them be anathema. 10) If anyone should make a video game where the player character automatically attempts to climb or hide behind walls or other objects without the player's input, let them be anathema. 11) If anyone should make a video game that contains references to internet memes in any way, shape or form, let them be anathema. 12) If anyone should make a video game where the player has x-ray vision, except in rare and special circumstances, let them be anathema. 13) If anyone should make an open world video game with quest markers, except for in rare and special circumstances, let them be anathema. 14) If anyone should make a video game where the player is forced to complete near-identical missions over and over again to progress, let them be anathema. 15) If anyone should make a video game where using a dodge mechanic makes the player character invincible, even when hit directly, while dodging, let them be anathema. 16) If anyone should make a video game that bans the use of any name or word, in any circumstance, let them be anathema. 17) If anyone should make a video game with dialog options that do not accurately reflect what said options will make the player character actually say, let them be anathema. 18) If anyone should make a video game and does not optimize it to run as well as possible within the amount of time they have to do so before the deadline, let them be anathema. 19) If anyone should use DRM, let them be anathema. 20) If anyone should make a first person shooter where enemies use hitscan instead of projectiles, except for in rare and special circumstances, let them be anathema. 21) If anyone should translate a video game from one language into another and add, remove, or alter anything in the script, except for in instances where a literal translation would result in gibberish, let them be anathema.

Gacha Thread

Making a new one because the other thread hasn't been bumped in a while and I don't want to necropost. So there's this new game called Genshin Impact which is supposed to come out later this month. It visually looks like Zelda: BOTW but plays differently in terms of combat. You can even free roam an open-world unlike many other gachas where you're stuck at a menu screen. There's gonna be dungeons and boss fights too. Obviously it being a gacha you have to unlock new characters with real money or earn them through grinding. I'll check it out just because it's free to play but I won't set my expectations high. A dumb aspect about the co-op play is when someone's in your world they won't advance the story or get loot, which seems counter-intuitive.

MMO Thread

Does anyone here still even play MMOs? I think they can be fun games if you personally like the aspect of group content where you're with 20-something other players in some large raid. Or you know typical MMO stuff like grinding out weapons or mounts. Optional areas that serve as entertainment like minigames. Player versus player content if it has it and if it's good. Quality of life content like housing that you can decorate. Or even just socializing with other people. It's a genre of games that constantly has updates and adding more. I can understand why people like it. Problem is, the more MMOs that release the more you find that they're just trying to copy older ones. Not only that but the copy is either poor or full of pay-to-win aspects, or both.

That Post-2008 Feeling

Sad how things wound up. EuroGamer gave the original Pathologic a 6/10, while admitting that it's impossible for a reviewer to properly score something like it. >It’s a brilliant game that the traditional reviewer has to condemn. This may, to some eyes, show a weakness in traditional reviews and reviewers. And to that end Rock paper Shotgun published a multi-part series of essays on the game, "Dissecting Pathologic." Then Pathologic 2 comes out and the same site gave it to a guy who literally only writes top 10 lists, who wasn't intelligent enough for the challenge, and gave up in the early-game. >After only nine hours, I’m on day three of a twelve-day story ... those nine hours are more than enough. Thanks, Pathologic 2, but no thanks. It was at least funny when he called it "budget Skyrim", but then again EuroGamer called the original "Oblivion with cancer" (albeit referring just to the visuals) so maybe some things never change. It's nice when we do get some proper gatekeeping these days. But it's also nice to see people care about things, unlike in the current culture of ironic enjoyment, where people only play detached pastiche that assures them they're too intelligent to enjoy something

I was able to download a few screenshots before it was shutdown on me right now. If anyone has more, then please upload here. Spoilers so far: Chris is not evil. He has left the BSAA and went rogue. He's trying to find and kill the main villain of the game, a woman with morphing abilities. Chris has been hunting her for three years, she's extremely dangerous, and the methods he's taking to take her down is something the BSAA would never approve of. At the beginning of the game, the person he shoots isn't Mia, it's this person. Also, you play the entire later half of the game as Chris. You play as Ethan during the first half of the game. He's then confronted by the main villain and his fate is unknown while we play as Chris. You retake control of Ethan for the final boss. He dies during the battle and ask Chris to take care of his daughter named Rose. Mia's fate is very obscure, with contradictory info which make it seems that her fate is tied to a choice. She's been captured by Miranda before the start of the game so she's not the one who gets shot by Chris. There is a cutscene named "Chris and Mia escape by Helicopter" but she's totally absent from the ending of the game. She's not Alex like most people think. Her name is Miranda and she's seemingly connected to Eveline and the Mold from RE7. She can change her appearance and transform into a huge molded dragon-like monster at the end. (reminds me of that Vergil turning into a dinosaur leak from way back). Her name is Rose and she's apparently/supposedly the reincarnation of Eveline. Miranda disguised herself as Mia to try to steal her but got shot by Chris. Later, she was able to steal her from Chris. The village treats Rose as some kind of goddess. Chris decides to retire, in order to be able to properly raise Rose as his surrogate daughter. There is a huge time skip, between 15 to 20 years. It's the late 2030s. Rose is an adult, Chris is an old man, She's visiting Ethan's grave when an agent parks nearby and she goes to him as they have a job for her. The agent jokingly calls her Eveline which makes her very angry. She then use some Wesker-style martial art against the agent before threatening him to not call her like that or she'll use a "technique/power" that even Chris doesn't even know about.

Games that were TOO GOOD for handheld?

Looking back, FF: Crisis Core was actually a fucking masterpiece. From a story standpoint it's actually the best Final Fantasy story. I'm not even bullshitting. The writing, the characters, the music all perfect. The combat could've been tweaked a little but it's still alright. How was a PSP title this good? I could go back and play the Monster Hunter Freedom games and they all aged like ass.

Red Dead Redemption 2

I finished this game the other day. Well I finished Arthur's story. I didn't care about the epilogue enough to finish that. Especially because I didn't get to keep all my horses or things I had saved up in Arthur's satchel. Anyway, I didn't love it. I didn't hate it. It's a good but really flawed game. Because it really doesn't want to let you play the damn thing. It's so fucking tedious with constant dialogue, slowly walking through camp just to get full context from characters, having to constantly change clothing for the weather, having limited clothing options, & the constant need for the horse inventory. I can't tell you how many times I've had to equip & re-equip guns despite just picking them. Fuck the scavenger hunt bullshit too. Hunting would be fun if spawns weren't a complete gamble, flowers/herbs weren't spread apart so much, & birds weren't a strain on the eyes just to find. The story was fine. I wasn't wowed at all. The characters were kind of just fucking stupid. Arthur is the only one that feels human of the main cast. Dutch is just crazy for no reason by the end. Micah is so ridiculously evil he should've been wearing a top hat with an extra long curly mustache goatee combo. John really is a fucking idiot. One more thing. Fuck horse riding & following people for missions. There's so many invisible walls that push you for no reason. Against or away from NPCs.

Emulation thread

For everyone to let their autism flow about whether or not RetroArch is the best emulator ever made, OR it's the worst POS to ever exist. Remember hat most questions can be answered by the Wiki: https://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/Main_Page So, I need some help with emulating Mac][ and Windows 3.1/95 games. I'm trying to install the games from the "rare game mafia" pack. And, installing the Nip version of Windows so that I can play them. With the Windows games: Win3.1DosBox doesn't work, VirtualBox keeps crashing while installing the OS, and 86Box doesn't recognized any "fixed drives" when I use fdisk. Meanwhile, with the Mac games, I cannot get Basilisk II to load despite the guides I've found for it. Is there an easier to load these games, or a preferred guide for each method?

WipEout thread

WipEout might as well be the single, coolest, freshest looking and sounding franchise of all time, with permission of Ridge Racer (Type 4 onwards) I hold these games dearly and close to me, since I grew up playing them. I believe that Wip3out might be the highest point of the franchise in every regard, it polished the classic formula to its shiniest degree and achieved utter sleekness, the likes of which any other developer could only dream of, I would go as far as to call WO3 poetry in motion, although that sounds quite faggy.

VR Headsets

Looking to get into VR, but there's too much choice and confusion. Seems like every headset has it's own stupid plans for complete market domination instead of giving any actual choice to consumers. My current thoughts are on getting the new HP Reverb G2. Should I get it? Is there a big enough game selection? Is piracy easy? Are the controllers good? Is there a way to get Occulus/Quest exclusives onto other headsets so that Facebook can fuck off? Why the fuck won't Valve ship the Index to my country instead of forcing me to go through Amazon for a 50%+ markup or dodgy looking resellers with no insurance on a 2-4 weeks international shipment?

Paradox CEO doesn't expect Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 to be released in the first half of 2021

https://archive.is/lXdnQ https://archive.is/ktlva For anybody who hasn't been following this game: The development has been hell and the writer of Mass Effect: Andromeda is working on it as the replacement writer after the previous one left. The studio working on it, Hardsuit Labs, haven't even made a game before. It's been total chaos. And you know what? Good. I fucking WANT this game to fail, I want to fail like I've never wanted anything to fail before. I am so goddamn sick of sequels to classic games completely forgoing their original fans for a new "target demographic". I've seen it happen with Fallout. I've seen it happen with Deus Ex. I've seen it happen with X-Com. I've seen it happen with Thief. I've seen it happen with Silent Hill. I've seen it happen with Prey. I've seen it happen with GTA It's basically publishers/devs saying "Oh hey, the original audience? The guys who actually bought these games and made them successful to begin with? The guys who made them iconic in the first place? Yeah, you don't matter anymore. We're going to take the brand recognition you gave them and go after a different audience audience who never played those games you like because they have more money, bu-bye!" Sorry for my sperging I'm just glad to see one of these kinds of games going through so much trouble. I deleted the previous thread made I made a bunch of typos in the OP

Halo Infinite delayed AGAIN - to fucking FALL 2021

https://archive.is/yWVeg >Hey everyone, I’m Joseph Staten. If you’ve been a longtime part of the Halo community, you may already know me. If you’re new to the community: Hello! It’s great to meet you. >I was part of the Bungie team who made Halo CE, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach. I came up on the design side of these projects, wearing many different hats over the years including writer, cinematic director, creative director—even a voice for the Grunts. >After Reach shipped, I became a Halo fan, cheering-on 343i from the sidelines. But I’ve spent the last four months immersing myself back into the Halo universe, and it’s my honor as creative director to help our team ship Halo Infinite in Fall 2021. >Yep, that’s when the game is coming out. And from now until then, every one of us at 343i and our great partner teams will be building, testing, and polishing an experience we hope all of you love. >I joined 343i right as the team was wrestling with feedback from the July campaign demo. This discussion boiled down to one fundamental truth: we needed more time to do things right. That included pushing hard in the Fall, giving the team time to recharge over the Holidays, and then coming back in January to finish the game at a healthy place. >Because Halo Infinite in the Fall of 2021… is just the beginning of the adventure. What an absolute shitshow. 343 completely missed not just the launch of the new Xbox, but basically the entire launch year. Microsoft is not going to forgive 343 for this, heads are gonna roll. You might even see figures like Bonnie get the boot. This is such an incredibly rare level of mismanagement for such a big franchise.

Games where it's a mess to figure out which version is the "best" to play

So, I've been meaning to get into a lot of older games, and I've had the fun time of trying to figure out the most optimal way to play them. One recent example I've trying to figure out is Metal Gear series. Using that as an example, from what I can find out, here's the "best" version of the games: >Metal Gear (2) <Play the original MSX2 games because every release afterwards drastically alters content >Metal Gear Solid For the "original" experience: <Get Integral For the "complete" experience: <Get VR Missions on the PS1 and Twin Snakes on the GC >Metal Gear Solid 2 It doesn't matter unless you want to skateboard, then... <Get Subsistence >Metal Gear Solid 3 It doesn't matter unless you want to play the "Snake vs. Monkey" game mode, then... <Get Subsistence in the PS2 Another example that comes to mind is the Lunar series where, the original two games on the Sega CD are literally completely different games compared to their remakes, and the "definitive" version of the remake ends up being the PSP version Silver Star Harmony. Then, there's also series like XZR, where it the sequel (XZR2) was released on Japanese computers, BUT XZR2 also has a remake called Exile for the PCE-CD/Sega-CD that continues the story (While XZR2 just ends it) and finishes it with Exile II. Any other game series that require this much autism to track which versions "should" be played over the other releases? I'm also counting rereleases because, for example, I picked up a copy of Contra 4 in order to play the original Contra because FUCK VALVE/NINTENDO/SONY/M$/KONAMI, I WILL NOT BY A SWISH/XBONE/PissPour; and the only other way to acquire the original Contra (Outside of the original game cart) was to acquire the Konami Classics Series on the DS, but it doesn't have Super C like Contra 4 does.

Final Fantasy XI Priv server group

i've been postponing making one of these for a while now. i've been wanting to start a group again to play on an oldschool private server of the game, locked around the 2007 version. with minimal QoL changes to keep the experience as similar to the old version as possible. Download & Install: http://edenxi.com/install you can launch the game through either Ashita (default, it has SHIT in the name for a reason) or Windower (an alternative launcher thats found in the game folder), these custom game launchers allow for the installation of plugins/addons that enhance the game and customization of visuals. the server has a list of allowed/prohibited addons so check that out before just installing every addon in the list. resources & data: retail wiki: https://ffxiclopedia.fandom.com/ data might be inaccurate since this wiki is for the retail version, unless you change the date of each page to a version of it around 2007 by clicking the blue arrow next to the page's title server specific wiki: https://classicffxi.fandom.com/wiki/Classic_FFXI_community >whats FFXI? its the first final fantasy MMORPG, released in 2002 entirely different from the wow clone that discord trannies fawn over these days. its heavily group focused to the point grinding solo is nil impossible unless you focus only on enemies below your level >why not retail? retail server costs 13.99 a month to play and the content after 2008 became pure powercreep and a gear threadmill that never ends. >why not -other serv-? i've looked around for a server that was as vanilla as possible and had a decent number of players. sadly, i came out with only 2 servers. nasomi and eden. i then went to look at the rules of each and i concluded Eden was slightly better less bad. every other private server out there has too many custom changes, ridiculous xp rates, has like 20-30 players, dumb custom changes, or a combination of all of these. >why the fuck do i need a code to register? thats some bullshit because some pajeet couldn't stop creating accounts to spam the in-game global chat. the codes are easy to get, but since they expire 10 minutes after being generated you might want to ask in their discuck for one, alternatively, join this group https://s.team/chat/E9P6d2DJ and i'll give you one when im online. >i've never played before, what job/city do i start in? its overall irrelevant, the game is designed so that your character can learn every job and eventually do every quest. there's a slight advantage to stats for each race but nothing really game-changing. you cannot fuck up your "build" like in other games. >how do i get in touch? i got a linkshell for us to shitpost in, post your IGN and i'll find you when im online or @ me in the steam group i posted earlier. post any questions you got and i'll try to help.

Shenmue thread

I really like what Shenmue tried to do, as someone who just got into these games, I don't feel dissapointed nor was I expecting them to be proto-RGG like many new players Shenmue titles are like glorified point and click adventure titles and that's fine. They might be a failed experiment but it's one that I enjoy , the atmosphere, little characters and great soundtrack is what really does it for me. It's like a time capsule you can open anytime, it sucks you right in. It's world somehow feels more alive than most games, it really moves you. Once I'm done with Shenmue I, I'll move onto II. I don't know about Shenmue 3. Playan using Redream, I didn't pay for this.

I'm so sick of not having any games stimulate me enough to enjoy every hour of them like I used to they're all shallow garbage that passes off as deep. I want a mixture of gameplay, atmosphere, story and dialogue. Something that'll give me the same feeling I got from the Silent Hill series, Zero Escape, DMC3, SA1, Deadly Premonition, Ace Combat 5, etc. Sure some of these games have nothing in common but the atmosphere and THAT CLICK they all give is what I want. Something with a fun soundtrack that makes me feel immersed without being shitty cliche movie sims like every Yakuza but 1.

Retroactive dislike for the Serious Sam formula

After the release of games like NuDoom, NuShadow Warrior and other "I'm totally not like all the other modern FPS games!" has anyone else gotten the feeling that perhaps the formula of being trapped in a room and having hordes of enemies thrown at you was just never really that good? A while back ago, Serious Sam was one of my favorites in the FPS genre, but I try to play it nowadays and I feel so exhausted with the nearly endless waves of enemies and not much room to explore. Is this just the result of oversaturation or did it take 2 franchises being raped to see that perhaps this isn't the best formula for the FPS genre?

FTL: Faster Than Light

Calling all captains still loyal to the Federation, it's time to put an end to the rebellion and make some morally dubious decisions along the way. What's your favorite: >ship >race >weapon/weapontype >strat Currently running Slug B about to enter the last sector with this thing and unlock the C variant. I got lucky and grabbed a flak mk1 and a pike beam on the second sector. Got a bunch of crew events and landed myself two rockmen. I usually go for mantis when i do a boarding party but i'm learning to really appreciate the hardiness of rockmen, with the extra 50 hp and a healing bomb i can send them onto automated scouts without worry. I think my favorite ship so far might be the Federation Cruiser C variant but i'm really enjoying the Slug ships. Might try my hand at the Stealth Ship or the Rock Cruiser next.

Monster Hunter

I'm new to Monster Hunter. I started with World and went to Generations Ultimate and preferred GU. With about 300 hours in it I am loving it, but the arts make multiplayer a bit dull in early fights because everyone just goes aerial style and spams mounts. So I started emulating 4u on citra and Portable 3rd on PPSSPP and I've fallen in love with P3rd. Any tips for a newbie to the series and a Hunting Horn main? Also, how does MH3 on Wii hold up compared to P3rd and 4u?

I'll give my thoughts on Echoes in subsequent posts so the OP doesn't have my 'tism. I just finished it last night. As for cool stuff, I recently found out about a jewtube channel that has posted all this obscure development and beta materials about fire emblem games, like FE6 originally intending on being a spiritual successor to FE5, and Lilina joining as early as chapter 1 with different animations and then maybe binding blade would've had a chance of being good, along with some various other shit. Also Ninty's releasing a (((localized))) version of FE1 I guess. Nothing much to say there unless anons have any thoughts about it. I suppose people have been speculating about a possible FE4/FE6 remake. What do anons think?

Itagaki is BACK, BABY!

>Tomonobu Itagaki, the creator of Dead or Alive and 3D Ninja Gaiden series, has announced he is returning to the industry by forming Itagaki Games. >In a Facebook post on January 16th, Itagaki revealed part of a Bloomberg interview which had been omitted due to character limit. Therein, he discussed working with Microsoft, and how in the past four years he had been teaching. He concluded and revealed that he felt like making games again, and so established a company, Itagaki Games, to do just that. >As the interview was Microsoft focused, Itagaki was asked if he would want the company to become part of Microsoft Game Studios. Itagaki explained that if they reached out to him, and could beat their rivals, he would be honored. The one thing that concerns me is that he wants Microsoft to buy then out asap, but honestly after the decline of Team Ninja, it's good to see the man back in action. Hopefully he doesn't fuck it up like with devils third.

It's been years since both Hotline Miamis dropped, and with it, the fanbase. Despite being able to properly and accurately credit this game instead of OverratedTale, for opening the door up to what's actually possible for an indie game, it actually doesn't get talked about as much. Is it because Hotline Miami is too gamey for people who just want to hold hands with skeletons and be trash at games in general? Despite the many homages to the series, through Suda51's No More Heroes, and even being an easter egg in TLOU2, these games don't get nearly enough respect and press the way other games do. Even for an indie game. Why is that? Something too offputting about edgy violence and a story that doesn't try to ram itself down your throat? Not enough gender neutral main characters? Too masculine?

After killing LucasArts, Disney starts LucasFilm Games

https://archive.is/ZmAyr It's like what they did with the Expanded Universe and cherry picked its corpse and shat out the High Republic. Basically acting like a publishing arm working with studios but putting the Lucasfilm Games brand on it. If they were going to do this, they should've just revived LucasArts since they kept the name. There hasn't been anything good associated with LucasFilms after Disney acquired it. Also, didn't they quit being involved in games because they said it was too much work? I thought that was the reason they dropped Disney Infinity (Skylanders ripoff) and let EA work on the Star Wars license for them. Disney is just a weird company based on their business decisions. They over payed for FOX just to get X-Men in the MCU. They're turning the MCU woke when it has killed their comics division. They thanked a Chinese concentration camp to make a terrible live action Mulan that even the Chinese don't like. They keep upcharging the theme parks post pandemic when they have cut the benefits that make it an experience so it's not worth it and is pricing out the average customer. They "feel bad" about letting go of their theme park staff but don't contribute to the food pantry and give their CEOs millions in bonuses. They've fractured the Star Wars fanbase with TLJ and are now trying to get them back with the Mandalorian and still their employees attack the fans. And just now, Chapek, the current CEO of Disney, is calling the Capitol Protest "“Inexcusable Assault on America’s Most Revered Institution”. https://archive.vn/thhk6 If this works like the EA Originals, they might have some good stuff coming out for Star Wars. Though, I have a sneaking suspicion that they are using this to bolster the LucasFilm Games brand so they can eventually make an in-house game studio after using the other studios to carry them toward that goal.

Project /v/attletoads - Hole in the Toad

A new Battletoads game came out on Friday. It fucking sucked. It was an insult to fans of the original and a trainwreck of cringeworthy detached millennial irony humor written by one of the BPD-afflicted faggots who wrote Rick and Morty. We could write a book detailing how bad this game was, but instead we're taking the high road. Since Microsoft is too fucking retarded to make a good Battletoads game, we are taking matters into our own nodev hands. So we are making a new game, entitled Project /v/attletoads, that we will do our best to make into the new game the series deserves. Planned features: >4 player co-op >Online! >New playable female Battletoad, Blista! >All new original sprites and cutscenes featuring original artwork >Over the top furry death >Titties If you're a coder, musician, or pixel/vector artist, we could use your help. Collaborate with us on our project, even if you're not any of the above things, you can still help out by posting suggestions, artwork and comments in this thread. Also, discuss Battletoads in general. The plan: 1. Work on the game. 2. Drop the 1.0 version. 3. Disseminate/mirror it everywhere. 4. Let the Streisand effect do its thing as Microsoft can't C&D this shit fast enough.

I was skeptical because of the new combat system and not playing Kiryu anymore but this game is really the best of the series so far. Being the legendary invincible Fourth Chairman was a dead-end from a story-telling perspective, they were bound to have crappy writing, they analyzed the flaws of the other games correctly and fixed them without throwing out the good stuff or pandering to anyone. It's amazing to see developers create something like this when you see Western ones just cripple themselves with failed follow-ups and foolish notions of creating something revolutionary.

Capcom embraces Core Values. The attack on fanworks.

https://archive.vn/s4Fo1 https://archive.vn/sMD6m (capcom video policy) I think we all saw this coming. It was mentioned in the latest hack leak they'd be taking a western approach for their business. "Using Capcom titles to create video and other content, including mods, that is illegal, racist, sexist, prejudicial to sexual orientation, sexually explicit, disparaging, promotes hate crimes, or is otherwise offensive is not tolerated." They also "reserves the right to take down content that is found to be inappropriate or objectionable, at our discretion.” Well, shucks. Now I can't use my modded Ryu in a Nazi uniform and says "Heil, Hitler!" whenever he does a Shoryuken. There's been a growing escalation to restrict fanworks. Nintendo took down a swath of games off Game Jolt. Not related to games but falls in a similar pattern: Shueisha shot DMCAs to twitter accounts for daring to have an image from one of their popular manga in a post or profile icon. They even hit one of their own artist in the crossfire. I feel these companies have forgotten about this symbiotic relationship that we have with fair use and how we interact with them to appreciate their works and also earn money together. This goes especially for Nintendo who not long ago had you go through them to even get paid to play their games. They lifted that for youtube but they've tripled their efforts by DMCAing fangames in the process. I feel like the best solution to this rapid escalation is to pool everyone's money to fight for fair use in court. Though, I'm not sure if even those who were personally affected by these abuse of copyright law have the courage to do so. They usually take to underground distribution and just do public bitching rather than take an active stance to prevent further abuse. Any other solutions or are we stuck in a constant checkmate position?

PS5 might become the lowest selling console in Japan

https://archive.vn/58fs1 https://archive.vn/If55s I guess all that censorship and betraying their Japanese audience by moving their headquarters to California has finally caught up with them. I would say Microsoft could take advantage of this and increase their Japan presence but we know what they did with Gal Gun. Also, I've heard hardly any talk about Series X in any gaming conversations. It might be because of what I thought at the time: a lack of exclusives to drive the console and conversation. It might have the netlfix of gaming service as a selling point but it does lack some genre variety and good games (specifically from under Microsoft) which they will probably fix soon. Until then, they're a little fish in a big pond when it comes to Japan. They barely leave a blip in console sales already so it might be several generations before they exert some influence and dominance in that market. PC will always be king but in the console wars, it seems Nintendo will be the victor yet again. They're mainstream and might censor themselves to uphold their image as the Disney of gaming but they aren't usually the ones to force their own standards upon other developers. You can get way with most things on a Nintendo console as long as it's not literally porn and you don't succumb to twitter peer pressure. You just have to take a hit in graphics to do it. It might be too early to call but it would make sense since it's clear to everyone that Japan doesn't matter to Sony right now.

Let It Die

Looks like GungHo woke up from their TGS hangover and realized that letting an assorted bunch of drunks on Skype advertise Ninjala for an entire hour was a terrible idea for a presentation, so they released a Let It Die update announcement video on their youtube channel to compensate. Long story short: There are some updates planned for the game's 4th anniversary, but with a twist. There's going to be a free gift download campaign, and the more the gift gets downloaded, the more updates LID will get. No specific date for the campaign just yet, but it seems set for sometime this season. Anyway, I'm curious to find out if we can still have a Let It Die thread around here that won't immediately die. But the board itself has slowed down quite a bit, so I'm feeling lucky.

Best Launch Titles (Crossgen titles don't count)

With the new consoles having no games, let's talk about launch titles of generations past. I think Circle of the Moon is very underrated. It has a few very big flaws like DDS being heavily based on RNG drops and the total lack of super armor (so even hits that do 1 HP damage send you flying), but the core gameplay is very solid. I think it comes the closest to a successful merging Symphony of the Night's Metroid-esque exploration and classic platformers. While most of the series have main characters that can stop and start going full speed instantly, Nathan Graves actually has momentum and only limited control over his jump once he starts it so platforming is actually meaningful. Nathan's small (and hilariously underanimated which has a two frame run animation) sprite allows you to see a lot of the world around you, which contributes a lot to platforming feeling great (lack of super armor aside). It's certainly better than HoD, which is just a mess of a game on so many levels (everything cut down so Konami could use a smaller, cheaper, cart, things done for no other reason than SotN doing them while not understanding why SotN did them like the after image, need for abusive button mashing to get anywhere in reasonable time).

The console wars are over. KFC enters the ring and cooks the competition.

If you thought PS5 or Xbox series X or even Nintendo with their next console with its mainstream appeal was going to win the console wars then you were dead wrong. KFC is about to bring the console wars to an end with their KFConsole. Boasting 4K, 240fps and also able to keep your chicken warm while gaming.

So this is the power of 11 secret herbs and spices for next gen gaming! https://archive.vn/02ntT (KFC gaming twitter) https://archive.vn/nhPDi (KFConsole) In all seriousness, this is likely just a publicity stunt. Not all that strange for a food chain to be involved in gaming. I remember Burger King and their Sneak King game. So if people don't want to continue to meme the KFConsole, why don't we talk about food chain mascots involved in gaming or weird console ideas/ designs in general. Officially or unofficially. Who knows. Maybe the KFConsole is real. If that Atari VCS is promised to come out in early 2021, then the KFconsole is just as possible as well.

MMO Playthrough Project

In the MMO thread I came up with the idea of picking an MMO then playing through it to the level cap then move onto the next game. Some anons responded saying they were down for it so I'm making a second thread to see how many others want in. The list contains MMOs that are pre-2010 for the older experience and also MMOs that I haven't seen 8chan play together before. The objective is to just level together and skim through the game, not really doing side-content unless the game forces you to do so. Some of these MMOs could be bad, and some actually good. So your experience could be shitty or pleasant. Here's a rough list of games we could choose from and you can recommend any others that are under the radar. >Perfect World International >Metin2 >Silkroad Online >PSU Clementine >Granado Espada >Eudemons Online >FlyFF private server >Twelvesky2 Classic >Fiesta Online >Jade Dynasty How we can vote on one will be determined on which MMO anons choose the most in the thread.

Why isn't there a proper Open Source Soccer/Football game out there?

Before I (or you) get anywhere else with this, a little bit about how football video games worked in "poorer" countries back then. Pro Evolution Soccer (AKA Winning Eleven) was not only the dominant title in Europe and South America, but it also had around a billion bootleg/hacked editions for every annual release. They usually add in new flags/clubs (depending on the region the bootleg was made for), replace music in the Soundtrack with better alternatives (like the Kill Bill theme or Beautiful Day), add in new stadiums, use new images in certain places, fix annoying bugs from the official releases, etc. Of course you needed a modchipped PS2 for them, but it was an amazing time. All of those people who dedicated themselves to hacking Football/Soccer games for our amusement, bless all of you from the bottom of my heart. Which brings me back to my idea: An Open Source 3D Football/Soccer Game Engine free from the clutches of Big Corporates with content all made by a dedicated community. And anybody can seemingly make their own version of it (like the peek days of PES/W11 Hacks)! I'm thinking among the lines of: ="OpenPES" or "Open11"= I mean, really think about it: -No microtransactions -No platform limitations -No "console paywalls" to keep us from playing online -Optimised for potatoes -everybody can make their own team, players club, stadium, menu theme, copyright infringing soundtrack, often to Soulcalibur proportions (with a hint of EmulationStation) -All Controllers Supported -And most of all, no more annual wallet-bait ... I mean, surely somebody would approve of this idea. It's not like EA and Konami own the IP to Soccer/Football Games. Besides, it would make due to be used in the "Next Cup" ;)

Or at the very least you get a little teary eyed, not full on sobbing. Two games I've played recently were Tales of Berseria and FFXIV. There were quite a few moments that got me emotional. Remember crying is okay just as long as you don't let others see you do it.

Devil May Cry Thread

Hey /v/, so I'm unsure if you've realized but Devil May Cry has a 20th anniversary next year. The original game was released on August 23rd 2001. Anyway as you know despite it's rocky history, Devil May Cry is still one of Capcom's biggest game franchises. So while I'm not expecting a full blown Devil May Cry 6, I do wonder if we'll get that special edition everyone and their mom has been asking Capcom for ever since DMC5 released without a playable Vergil. Either that or a younger team at capcom will be reassigned to remake DMC1 with DMC5's engine and mechanics, which I'd be kinda okay with. Either way I'm sure we'll get some kinda promotion to go along with the 20th Anniversary, and with that out of the way let's get to the important questions. >FAVORITE GAME >FAVORITE DEVIL ARM >FAVORITE GUN >FAVORITE STYLE >FAVORITE CHARACTER >WOULD YOU GO GAY FOR DANTE?

Best fun games to challenge yourself?

I just picked this up on PC after not having played it since console many years ago, and the PC version has a ton of content that consoles didn't have. It's still fucking fun and actually challenging if you're playing solo. You need to know exactly where to place your towers and which ones to upgrade before the others. I've been playing on medium difficulty first and the only level I failed at once was Glitterhelm Caverns. It was a little difficult but I haven't been upgrading my armor and weapons or pet, and I've only stuck to putting down squire towers. I still can't imagine playing that level on nightmare difficulty solo and I haven't even played the levels after that. I missed playing this with my bros back on the 360 days. The PC version has so much more shit and even added new characters. They really dropped the ball with Dungeon Defenders 2 by making it a shitty free-to-play online only game.

Konami Makes a New Console Game That is Not Sports

https://archive.vn/CCDnP (post on official Twitter) At Jump Festa 2021 Konami announced a Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel based video game for Switch. That's literally all they announced besides implying you'll be able to fight characters from the new anime in it, but that was a feature in literally all but one (maybe two or three depending on how you count) Yugioh game(s) anyways. Rush Duel is so early in its lifespan it's likely for the best it doesn't come out too early (It took well over two years for a proper OCG game to be released, and almost three for a good one). The real news is that Konami seems to be making this one internally. If you exclude the horrible Metal Gear Survive (which is almost three years old), literally every game they've made in past five years has been 1: a re-release 2: an annual sports title 3: a music game with new songs added 4: phone shit and/or 5: outsourced to an external developer. Also talk about general (children's) card game games.

FitGIrl Troubleshooting and FitGirl General

This is kind of a troubleshooting request, but I also want people to talk about their general experiences with FitGirl's work and any closely tangential topics (or even far off stuff if it's relevant). I think most times I've tried installing a FitGirl repack it failed for some reason or another. I just deleted it and got an IGG version. I'm trying to install Iron Harvest right now, and I'm getting the error in the screenshot i uploaded. I opt out of the downloads. I'm getting the error that specifies the english language pack, however if I go back through the installation and deselect all the language packs I get a different error. I have disabled windows defenders' real-time scanning, verified the hashes for the bin files, re-checked the torrent hash, I don't have the file stored in a directory with a weird name with Rusviet characters, I have disabled UAC and have no AV running/.. I have followed all troubeshooting steps at this link https://fitgirl-repacks.site/repacks-troubleshooting/ in accordance with my problem except the part about the language pack, which I'm assuming was just included in the torrent, and I already have it. is this right? I got this same torrent to install on W7, but when running it in compatibility mode as administrator on W10, it won't work. I also tried running it in compatibility mode with WXPSP3, but no dice on that either. What is the problem here?

Another game I've been playing is the megaman battle network series, finished 1 about a week ago. It really does something unique and different in regards to rpg battles the devs seems to have tought the same as well, seeing as how there are 6 battle network games. The story is ok/mediocre -ish.

I would like some help attempting to build my own PC

I'm starting to have some leeway in my finances, and one of the things I would like to do is see about building my own PC. Since the beginning, I've dealt with the pre-built machines that are effectively toasters, so now I want to see about having my own custom PC that's is designed just for me. The problem is that I have no idea what hardware is out there, which ones have the best compatibility, and which are just nothing more than a meme. So, if possible, could you guys list what are some of the options available, and what are the pros and cons of them? As far as what the limitations and requirements are, here's the basic rundown of that, as well as what I will be using the computer for: >ALL the hardware must be fully compatible with Windows 7 I heard that there is some hardware that restricts their "full" potential based on the OS that you are using (Even when overclocking), so I want to see about avoiding those. Also, I don't care that there's a updateless-version of Botnet 10, I outright refuse to use it. As far as any alternative OSes, I may dabble around with AROS, but that's not a requirement as I can just fiddle around with it in VirtualBox >Estimated budget between $2k-$3k I'm not planning to break the bank, but I also know that it's not going to be cheap. And, it's for that reason that I may think about avoiding things like SSDs since justifying their useful begins and ends with their high price tag, AFAIK. >Primarily used for gaming Most of my games go up to 2012, but I do have a couple games that are as recent as 2015, 2016. I'm not looking for a powerhouse that's going to play something at 4k 120 FPS, but I would like something that at least scratches around 1080p and 60 fps with majority of the effects on. Here's a sample list of games that I've wanted to, at least, play but run like shit on all my systems no matter what I do: <Final Fantasy 13 (Shut up) <Hydrophobia <Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 <Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris <Lost Planet: Extreme Condition <Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad <Shadow Warrior (2) <Sonic Generations <Strider (2014) <Watch_Dogs >Also emulation Something that will, at least, be able to emulate 3DS games should fit what I'm looking for at the moment. >Will be used for programming I am currently in the process of learning how to code, and I will soon be learning how to use Blender, so I would like something that wouldn't hinder most activities that are regarding those ventures. And, those are the biggest points I'd like to focus on in regards to what I'm looking for. What advice can you guys offer to help narrow down my options?

Literally out of fucking nowhere Arc and Eighting announced a new fighting game based off the MMO Dungeon Fighter called DNF Duel. I've seen some anons talk about this game in the past and how it was once good but got ruined, but perhaps I'm confusing it with Tribes.

Sonic games and length

The general idea I'm raising here is that Sonic games having around 2 hour lengths on a casual run, is actually incredibly beneficial because it lends itself to speedrunning, even if you only play it casually. And in turn, asking why SEGA and or Sonic Team have this weird aversion to just making a straight point A to point B platformer without any guff or fluff to it. As for my reasoning, and the real meat to the post, it's gonna be long, but here it goes. I ask because two of the best Sonic games in their respective styles of Sonic, (2D and 3D), are Sonic Mania and Sonic Robo Blast 2. Granted, SRB2 is a fan game, but with 2.2 it's more or less a full game now, and despite lacking wall running and loops, really any of the advanced stuff things like Project Hero and Sonic GT can do, it's my most played 3D Sonic as of late, by far. And that's saying a lot, considering I have SA2 on steam and a shit ton of nostalgia for it. You'd think with how much fondness I have for SA2 it'd be the one I fire up nearly daily, but it's not. This is for a multitude of reasons, one of which being how if you remove all the scripted segments from 3D Sonic, pretty much everything before Unleashed plays like SRB2 does. Although, ironically, SRB2 does more since, while like I said you can't wall run or use ceilings for stuff, the overall platforming makes heavy use of slopes in all the 2.2 maps. There's a bit in Castle Eggman 2 in particular where it's a series of small 45 degree platforms, that you have to hop laterally across using the game's physics to do so. Nothing like that even remotely happens in SA2 or Heroes, and if it does, the way slopes play with Sonic's physics sure as hell don't either. Basically, the limitations of the engine make it so SRB2 is more like a skatepark, than a rollercoaster. All of that is to say that the gameplay feels very much like classic Sonic in 3D. It's difficult to learn and adjust to, but it's incredibly satisfying once you understand it. And all of that is important because unlike basically every 3D Sonic game, SRB2 has no mid game cutscenes, or even level transitions for that matter besides the rocket at the end of Red Volcano. This makes it incredibly friendly to just playing through repeatedly, rewarding both speedrunning, and just casual play. As regardless of how you approach it, the nuanced physics and open level design means every second you play, you improve bit by bit, and eventually you can just utterly crush levels that used to give you trouble. The 3D games have always tried to echo this, but not a single one has succeeded even remotely as well as SRB2 does. As every single aspect of the design comes together to both emphasize, and reward, continuing to replay the game over and over. And this is where I can finally start tying this all back to the main point, since all of this that I've explained? That's how the genesis games and Mania, were/are designed. Mania in particular, while the weakest narratively and most lacking in originality, it has the best level design by far of any 2D Sonic game. And likewise, I've played it through 40+ times, easily. Because of the two things I've described here. The physics, and the length. If one of those two were off it wouldn't feel right, as it'd become a slog towards the end, or it would simply just not feel good to play. So then now we get back to the main crux I started this whole post with. Why exactly is SEGA afraid of just letting a 3D Sonic be like this? They came closest with Colors, even going so far as to include the Egg Shuttle, which was just a long marathon of every level in the game, but as I stated a few lines up, the physics are off in it. And in turn marathoning colors doesn't have the same kind of rewarding feeling from the second to second gameplay, that SRB2 does. This gets further compounded by the only reason SRB2 being the best 3D Sonic, is because things like Sonic GT and Project Hero aren't full games. Granted SRB2 isn't either, but at 13 zones (14 if you count Metal Sonic's race as one), it's a pretty fucking substantial "demo" and really starts to blur the line between finished product, and Work In Progress. But I digress. Overall, what are your thoughts? Why do you think SEGA won't just make a short, but really good, Sonic game, and bank on people replaying it to increase playtime, instead of padding it out to increase run time?

Bear

What are some your favorite bears in videogames? Anything you've been playing with a bear on it? I've been playing Fur Fighters and Crystal Castles. I'm also thinking on playing Naughty Bear again. It's sad that bears aren't as frequent in videogames as I would wish they were. I remember watching the Battletanx commercials as a kid and getting excited thinking the teddy bear would be featured in the game. To my great disappointment he was not. It was a reasonable request since Army Men: Air Combat feature a teddy bear that would shoot laser out of his eyes. It was awesome and most likely one of the factors on why the Playstation did so much better compared to the N64. Me and many others sold our N64 after watching such scummy practice. That Battletanx commercial promised us bears yet it gave us nothing. After the release of Banjo-Kazooie it only made sense that Battletanx would feature a bear. But it did nothing more than ruin my Christmas back in 1998. There's has also been a lot of unutilized bears in the past, take Bark the Polar Bear for example. Who you may ask? I wouldn't blame you for not knowing him. He's a sonic character that hasn't really been utilized by SEGA since Sonic Fighters other than a couple of cameos in Sonic Generations and Sonic Mania. Thankfully with mods the fans have given him the attention he deserves. There are exception though like Polar from Crash Bandicoot was playable in CTR Nitro-Fueled and made an appearance in the latest but pozzed Crash 4.

It's easy to learn, hard to master battle system makes for fun and fast paced matches with counterhits often launching girls across the screen. Very fast when played right. As a P2P game, game hosts must forward ports in order to play it or use specific workarounds.

After launching th123e.exe, wait one or two seconds and then launch SokuRollLoader.exe to enable netplay. To host, hosting player forwards a port (detailed instructions are available on the internet) and provides IP with a port in an IP:Port format, launches the game with sokuroll and uses the Vs Network menu to start the server. Client connects to provided IP and port and plays game. Should a port be unable to be forwarded, workarounds exist - Autopunch being the best ( https://github.com/delthas/autopunch/blob/master/README.md , launch after sokuroll, both players must run this to work, so host has to mention that it's used) and ZeroTier being the unlikely backup plan.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales sells less than Spider-Man on digital

I guess you guys are SHOCKED by this news but not really.

There is multiple reasons why it sold less. CBR does give 1 good reason with the mixed messaging of if the game was DLC or standalone game and we found that out on launch day that it really was an overcharged padded DLC. Their other reason isn't so good. Saying limited stock of PS5 hurt Miles Morales, forgetting that the data they are arguing on is based on DIGITAL sales. I don't think I have to remind you that digital can't run out of stock. Maybe keys to get the digital version in some cases but it's impossible to run out of stock of the game. And here's probably the most important reason that it didn't sell but failed to mention. Peter Parker is a more popular character than Miles. A spin-off character is rarely more popular than the main character. Nobody thinks Batwoman is a much better character than Batman, unless you're a journo. Miles is only decent because of the movie and game. In the comics he was trash most of his life. The only surprising thing about this article is that haven't used the race card yet but that might be saved for later. It is the holiday season and even though they are likely the people to rail against Christmas, they'll happily take the day off regardless. Miles Morales will always be a lesser Spider-Man, even if you kill Peter Parker off and nothing will change that paradigm.

Testing Ongoing

ONGOING TEST Some nice faggot with a spambot has given us the perfect opportunity for a full-scale test of the Proof of Work captcha system. It is now activated. How it works When you get your bypass captcha for posting the system will make your computer solve a hard math problem before it lets you post. Its a neat little engine that makes any kind of spam a real pain in the ass. What you need to do Nothing. Just enter the captcha like normal and wait. Depending on how fast your computer is, it will let you in within 1-3 minutes. Isnt this annoying? In return for putting up with it, your bypass now lasts longer and is good for many more posts before you have to renew it. It should be less annoying than spam, and allows mods to effectively ban people even on TOR and VPNs if they're fucking up threads, spamming, niggerpilling, etc. Is this permanent as of today? No, just a test. If you're unable to get the bypass to go through even after waiting 10 minutes or more, email us at 8moeadmin at protonmail.com and we'll check for bugs.

Christmas Day Doom

Merry Christmas! A few years ago after one of the regular gamenights I thought it would be a good idea to run Doom for anyone that ends up on Christmas day with nothing else to do, so I've kept doing it each year. I normally leave the server up regularly, so if you want to play again later maybe it'll still be there. How do I join? Name: /v/ideo games Address: videogames.69.mu:10666 Password: infv We're using a lot of custom WADs so you'll want to join with Doomseeker. Just look up the server name or bookmark the address, and when you attempt joining Doomseeker should download the wads automatically for you with Wadseeker. If it doesn't work add http://videogames.69.mu/wads/ to your Doomseeker sources. If you absolutely must connect manually make sure you get all our special snowflake wads from there (which are subject to change so you might have to get more after a server reset) and connect with "connect videogames.69.mu:10666 +cl_password infinity" How do I get Doom? We're playing with Zandronum 3.0, which is available at https://zandronum.com/download If you downloaded one of the copies that doesn't include Doomseeker, get it from here to connect more easily https://doomseeker.drdteam.org/ You'll need doom2.wad for Zandronum to work. You can get it here if you don't have it: https://files.catbox.moe/mvnmy5.zip If you downloaded a portable/archive version just stick it in the same folder as Zandronum's files, and if you used an installer it should have a wizard that lets you browse for your .wad file. We also have a "retard friendly" preconfigured pack here: https://files.catbox.moe/pxsns2.7z It's a bit old now and I didn't test it again, but I updated the server address.

The Steam Awards are starting

https://store.steampowered.com/steamawards/nominations The nominations are still being setup, you can vote for whatever games you want nominated. The actual voting stage comes way later. Nomination categories >Game of the Year < Maybe it was its immersive gameplay, or its gripping story... its well-crafted characters, immaculate design, or addictive multiplayer. Whatever the reason, the winner of 2020's Game of the Year Award is an instant classic. >VR Game of the Year (AKA the Alyx award lmao) < The VR Game of the Year isn't merely masquerading as regular reality. This game improves on reality, taking advantage of the medium of VR and pushing the boundaries of the virtual realm. >Labor of Love < This game has been out for a while. The team is well past the debut of their creative baby, but being the good parents they are, these devs continue to nurture and support their creation. This game, to this day, is still getting new content after all these years. >Better With Friends < There are some games out there that just aren't the same when you play by yourself. Maybe you need to have a friend to watch your back. Maybe you need to have a friend that you can stab in their back. Either way, fun is awaiting those who gather friends together play this game. >Outstanding Visual Style < Visual style doesn't aspire to real-world graphical fidelity (though a noble goal in itself)… it describes a distinctive look and feel that suffuses an entire game. >Most Innovative Gameplay < The designers of this game are at the front lines of creative experimentation, bringing a fresh perspective and brain-breaking surprises. This game delighted, inspired and entertained with newness never played before. >Best Game You Suck At < This is the game that rewards persistence, and is not for the faint of heart. It's the toughest game we've ever loved. >Best Soundtrack < This unsung hero deserves to be recognized for its outstanding musical score. It's the OST with the MOST! >Outstanding Story-Rich Game < Some days, only a narrative-heavy game will hit the spot, and this one packs a wallop. It's as gripping as any soap opera, and as well-tuned as a prestige-TV screenplay. Bravissimo -- for making us feel things! >Sit Back and Relax < This game is the antidote to a busy day. It's smooth, it's relaxing, it lets your worries melt away. This game is your moment of zen.

JEDI ACADEMY GAMENIGHT We've had an annual Christmas Jedi Academy gamenight for the past few years, so it's time to have one again. Gamenights usually have Friday 2pm EST/7pm UTC as an official start time, but you can connect whenever you feel like it and see if anyone's on. This time we're doing something a little different with the schedule, we're starting on Monday and going until Christmas day where JKA will be replaced with Doom. Admin(s) may not be available 24/7 so bear with us as we attempt a decent map rotation. We're running OpenJK for stability and compatibility with modern and free™ OSes and with a pack of custom characters, maps and lightsabers so you can play as just about any character you want. Gameplay is pretty much vanilla, but with some minor fixes and extra animations. like the Sheev spin How to get it Downloads here: https://pastebin.com/raw/VyQyj2Ty Piratefags: get the "lazy" installation pack and the modpack Legitfags: get the "manual" installation and the modpack How to install Piratefags: Extract the lazy pack wherevere you want then extract the modpack into the jka/ folder, accepting overwrites/merges. Legitfags: Extract the "manual" installation files, copy the assets#.pk3 files from your legit copy of the game into the jka/base/ folder and then extract the modpack into the jka/ folder like above. To run the game, just double click PlayGaem.bat if you're on Windows or run one of the .sh files if you're on Linux. How to connect Name: /v/ gamenight!!!!!!!! Password (if it's turned on): videogames If you don't want to bother scrolling through the entire server list to find us open the console (` key by default) and type connect videogames.69.mu; password videogames (or try 76.242.29.107) Notes The game might run in fullscreen by default. If you want to set the resolution right away, set the resolution in the config file as shown in the FAQ post below. Both versions need to make sure to use PlayGaem.bat when you want to launch the game. If you have any issues with installing just ask ITT, if nobody answers for a bit maybe we're all asleep but we'll get to you tomorrow.

Project Wingman

This came out a couple of days ago. Very much an Ace Combat clone. Seems promising based on the first few missions. Can't say I had heard of this one before release, or maybe I just forgot. Seems it had a kickstarter campaign, which is maybe why I had tuned it out. Pretty much the only negatives I can think of straight away are the menus when using a controller, as the left stick works like a mouse cursor. The second one is the incoming missile indicator, which is pretty confusing and hard to tell where the missile is coming from. Otherwise the game seems good.

Vidya that's obviously and heavily inspired in other games

Games that copy the formula and other aspects of existing games almost verbatim. With the popularity of indie games a lot of developers seem to rather copy an existing product and make it into something new but without many changes and without subtlety. While you can argue that a lack of originality can affect a videogame, there are various examples of releases that manage to outstand from the rest just by being good even if using part of the soul of an already existing game. You know what they say, "If it isn't broke, don't fix it". Though I like originality and new concepts on new games, I can't help but appreciate these games. Specially considering how many franchises have been left in the mud by many companies yet there still a fanbase for these old properties. A lot of these feel like a love letter for these old games so many people go back and play and enjoy, and with how low the industry has fallen, these videogames are a but warm light in a deep dark tunnel. What are some games that fall into this category you enjoy? Any recommendations? I'm planning on playing pics related this week. Specially excited for Rusty since I heard there's a Gashadokuro boss in the game.

Why is FF7 considered a good game?

Figured I should make a thread about it so that I can get some real answers on this, or try to anyway. I've constantly heard some cocksuckers tell me how good FF7 is over the years, even on this very board you see a couple faggots suck it off. Problem is, almost none of them actually explain a damn thing and when they do, it's all the sort of marketing speak e-celebs have spat out for a decade. Can anyone here who's actually played this game give a rundown on just what good qualities it has, if any at all??

Please explain to me, again, why are modern game graphics so demanding while looking absolutely terrible?

What brought this on is that I'm installing a bunch of games I have that are a decade old (Along with testing them to make sue they work without issue) and, after maxing out the graphics settings at 1080p, I'm just astonished how good some of the games are. Pics are a few of them. 10 years later they still stand up. But, for some reason, they're only a fraction of the size in comparison to the games released these days that require several dozen gigs of hard drive space on top of ridiculous hardware requirements. What happened? I remember some Anons stating that it has to do with how they dropped texturing for mesh coloring and shaders, but wouldn't that take up even more time of the developers? Especially since these methods seem to require more demanding hardware to even run it? In addition to that, another reasoning I heard has to do with companies getting too many people involved in one project, but that brings up another issue. If these games were better programmed and better looking with smaller teams than exist today, why do companies keep insisting on having three or more different studios pulling all their teams to work on ONE project? Wouldn't it be money better spent to have each team doing it's own thing, having several games coming out and reducing the possibility of one or two bomb(s) bankrupting the company because you'd also have a few modestly successful games and one hit? And, it wouldn't be much of a change in paying them because they still would be paid either way they're all working on the same thing or working on separate projects. That also brings up something else, why is still a taboo to have new games running at 1080p 60fps on consoles when they should be fully capable of it? Before someone tries to twist my words and derail the thread, I'm not saying these are the "best game graphics ever". What I AM saying, however, is that these graphics still hold up to day, and look even better than modern games in some instances.

It is best to use the default. >user_steam_id.txt is where you put your steam64 ID (Leave blank and goldberg will assign you a random one) >If you'd like to use a specific account for example if you want to maintain progress from your actual steam account, put the Steam64ID# in this file. >If you'd like to use a seperate steam account for this game vs other goldberg games you may have you can create a folder next to the "settings" folder called "C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Goldberg SteamEmu Saves\1007040" and put a user_steam_id.txt with a different account number in this folder. The emulator will read this folder first. consider the files in "C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Goldberg SteamEmu Saves\settings" to be global for any game you use goldberg with. If you want to host a game post your IP ITT and people can add it to their custom_broadcasts.txt file and connect to you. I have included the fixed EXE that allows uncensored chat and an increased character limit. All players (except potentially 1 per lobby) must have the goldberg port forwarded for both TCP and UDP in order to connect properly. There is also a zerotier option if this method causes issue for you that would let you play with nosteam people without port forwarding credit to the zzzchan thread for the online information

Online multiplayer

Does anyone even play older online games anymore on PC? Outside of the gamenight threads, that is. I was just wondering because I'm looking through my PC games, half of them I have to pirate because of DRM causing issues, but then that leads to the issue that I'm effectively locked out of half of the game. I do have workarounds for a few, but that also brings forward another problem that I noticed where it seems like a huge chunk of the games I have (Even the ones that I can freely access the multiplayer of) are played by literally no one else. So, I was just wondering, as a whole, is there anything that I'll really be missing that I cannot experience outside of the singleplayer or finding some local places that are interested in hosting LAN parties.

Sam & Max Save the World by censoring themselves and being 2020

Skunkape Games released a remastered version of Telltale's Sam & Max Season One. Since it's 2020, they of course censor it and here's how they respond to it in their FAQ: "We did make small tweaks to a few jokes that we were uncomfortable including in a game in 2020. (These changes were so minimal that we forgot all about them when we first posted this FAQ!) These don’t change the game experience and we feel strongly that it was the right thing to do. Unless you go looking for them, you probably won’t even notice.” What were the changes? Altering the fake name a character goes under when disguised as an exaggerated stereotype of a Frenchman. Altering a joke about tear gas being able to clear out a room full of “militant college students,” now no longer being a joke. Removing a joke about a a character having a sex change. Removing mention of skinheads in a joke. Altering a license plate that alluded to a character being a drug dealer (now implying they are an arms dealer). Removing mention of “special needs children” in a joke. Altering a joke where a character suggests one of the avatars people can use on the internet include a “hot young fifteen-year- old girl curious about the adult world and willing to experiment." Characters no longer using the slang “foo'”– typically associated with black and African American subcultures and stereotypes. They also replaced a voice actor for Bosco from Joey Camen to Ogie Banks because they have to make people voice their own race now because of that stupid Apu controversy for the Simpsons and all the other white people who step down from black characters after that. You know what the most important thing about voice acting is, right? It's the voice. We've had black people voice non-white characters before with no problems prior to current year. Phil Lamarr is the perfect example, despite him being a hypocrite with his colorless voice remark prior and re-editing that to modern opinions of "... but the people themselves aren't colorless, though". They knew about the changes but they were too much of a coward to be upfront about it since they knew they'd lose some sales if long time fans knew what was happening. Cowardice is the perfect moniker of anything released after current year because they can't handle a joke that are from over a decade ago.
