/gameclub/ thread- Actraiser

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 https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/snes/563502-actraiser/faqs/6792 Actraiser 2 https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/snes/563503-actraiser-2 Max hours of playtime should be about 5 to 7 hours of gameplay poal.me: https://poal.me/hy32zj

TF2 Bots Reach Critical Point

The bots that have been plagueing TF2 for at least two years now have finally made it so they can no longer be kicked from servers - basically the one thing which should hopefully force Valve's hand to address the problem. For those who need a quick recap... >TF2 has automated bots run by independent third parties who join casual servers en masse, typically mic spamming or spamming chat >These bots pick sniper and have aimbot activated >TF2 does not automatically ban these bots >Their names are sometimes links to youtube channels or they spam discord channel links/steam profile links in chat >Valve refuses to acknowledge them or even try to lessen the influence of these bots And now this is the current situation... <These bots now impersonate the name of someone on the server <They cannot be kicked <They initiate votes themselves and will vote to kick whoever they're impersonating <Basically any server these ones join should be considered kaput and unsalvageable See .mp4 for details. Valve NEEDS to address this or their game will die, for real this time. Here's the funny part which may intrigue you, Valve is running a conference with Robin Walker and the TF2 devs with a select few from the TF2 community. The select few? >Uncle Dane >Some tranny bitch named Jill >SolarLight >some other comp faggots So with these people acting on behalf of the fucking community, it's highly likely all that will happen is they'll have Robin Walker say 'le trans rights!' or 'le robin walker gaming!' or, if we're especially unlucky, they'll ask about removing shit like random crits or bullet spread. Bots won't be addressed, let alone solved. Well, that's just the cynic in me talking. Discuss the absolute state of TF2

The most obscure game you like

I want to hear about some games I've never seen before. I'm sick of "hidden gem" lists that are made entirely of games that were big for their time and are just being forgotten because it was from two console generations ago. Obscurity is the top priority. Ideally a game you enjoy, but mostly one you don't think anyone else has heard of. My example is Plaque Attack. Think Space Invaders mixed with Missile Command where you play a toothpaste tube shooting at food. One (for the time) novel aspect is that you can move around the play field and are defending two sets of teeth.

Senior Vice President of PSN George Cacioppo was caught trying to meet with a 15 Year Old boy for sex.

So for those not in the know, the Senior Vice President of PSN was caught trying to have sex with a 15 and 14 year old boy. I posted a video of the incident itself, as well as a couple of important chatlog pics from the vigilante group from "people v. preds" in the OP and it clearly shows his face. It seems like most of the video games journalism outfits aren't covering this since they're likely covering up for Sony, although Niche Gamer is waiting for a police report before doing anything. That being said I'm can't say I'm surprised considering the recent treatment of ecchi developers by PlayStation, however there appears to be some damning evidence here. Still it's kinda ironic that Jim Ryan only put an internal note out a few weeks ago, yet one of their biggest executives on the Playstation team is supposedly a pedophile. I'll be dumping further images in the thread.

FFXIV - Free Trial Edition

>How to play the free trial Do not try to sign up using steam, you can download the trial through steam if you want, but sign up using this link. https://freetrial.finalfantasyxiv.com/ >Linux? Works fine under linux and has lutris scripts, though I'd recommend using the custom FOSS launcher for the game as the default one can crash and is generally just shit. This is true for Windows as well. The FOSS launcher saves your password so you don't need to type it in every time you boot the game. https://github.com/goatcorp/FFXIVQuickLauncher https://lutris.net/games/final-fantasy-xiv-online/ >Which data center/server? Some anons are playing on Primal Exodus. Crystal is the RP/tranny data center. You can play with people within your data center. In the new expansion they're going to add the ability to play with people cross data centers as well, so come November it won't matter as much if you're on some random data center and want to play with anons. >Free trial limitations https://support.na.square-enix.com/rule.php?id=5382&tag=freetrial tl;dr you can't whisper people, can't add friends but can be added by others, can't create parties but can be invited to them, can't join guilds, and can't use the auction house or retainers. >Is it worth playing? I would say so. Apparently there are even communities dedicated to strictly free trail content which includes the Heavensward content. There's a lot of leveling content to do as well as things like the Golden Saucer which has a lot of fun mini-games and jump puzzles you can do for mounts and cosmetics. You might get 100-200+ hours out of just the free trail if you pushed it far enough.

What is the deal with Overwatch

Considering the recent development around Blizzard I think its pretty safe to assume Overwatch is pretty much done as an IP. I don't think there is much to discuss there to begin with but what I always wondered, since I only played much later after release, what even made it popular in the first place. I mean realistically outside of porn and somewhat nice looking visuals it was always at best a mediocre shooter. Mainly because of the hardcounter system where some characters are hard counters to others the game never could be properly balanced. It always had to be broken on some level, at least not without a major redesign. So I wonder was it just Tracers ass that made it popular or was there at some point something more to the game when it started?

Upload 5 files and then zip the rest if the dump is larger then 6-7 files. Music Albums exceeding 5 files are to be zipped. 3. When uploading .torrent, either add them to the a zip of the game or just don’t upload those misc files. Properly label files so that they can be identified without asking someone else. 4. For lewd stuff with filenames like RJ74765, either add a .txt linking to the contents on a website or just add the title to the .txt (e.g. "BIG BOOTY WOMEN SIT ON SHOTA FACE (RJ34734)"). 5. You can filter files by file type (.txt, .rar, etc) or search the file list with the bar hidden by the filter files button. a. When in doubt, archive as a single [or split if too large], then upload.

Are video games dead in the water in terms of innovation?

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?

Dark Souls

Dark Souls is a masterpiece. Dark Souls 2 is a tepid, unfinished fan game and Dark Souls 3 is everything that's wrong with sequels. Demon's Souls, while special in its own regard, is weak and underdeveloped in comparison and undeniably lives in the shadow of Dark Souls. Many games try to copy it in some basic, piecemeal way by emulating parts of it without ever realizing the greatness that is the whole of Dark Souls and in most cases these attempts at creating something that recaptures the lightning in a bottle that is Dark Souls end up falling flat because of their inability to understand that it's more than the sum of its parts. Good as it may be, it's finite. Frustratingly so. No matter how much variety you can inject into the game with challenge runs or randomizer mods, it doesn't change the fact that you are more familiar with the walls of Firelink Shrine than you ever were with your childhood home. Every inch of Lordran burned so deeply into your brain that no matter how much you remind yourself that this is the best video game experience you could ever possibly have you can never shake that feeling that it has become rote. How do you deal with it? The constant disappointment of shallow clones, the constant wave of dread that you will never again experience anything even close to as good as Dark Souls again? What if Elden Ring can't even sate this thirst you've had now for a decade? What if Dark Souls IS both the beginning and end of perfection in gaming, a once in a lifetime experience that you will never taste again? How much longer will you chase that dragon, anon? How many more lore videos will you watch, how many more mods will you suffer through just to feel something close to joy again? How long will you wait for a true remaster, only to be disappointed yet again? It's already been ten years.

Picked an Argonian not just to fuck with the Dunm*r that their nectarine is a lizard, but for obvious starting benefits. I am not even going to hand to hand if I can help it. All damage will eventually be from reflect damage and reflect spell potions. So it's a lot of mages guild stuff and grinding to begin with.

RUMOR: Playstation copying both Nintendo AND Xbox by making Playstation Plus a three tier system

A new rumor has surfaced suggesting Sony is planning a Game Pass competitor to help drive more hardware sales, and its currently codenamed Spartacus. Basically for people who don't obsess over leaks, Tier 1 will be the standard Playstation Plus but you can also cloud stream older games from the PSNow servers. Tier 2 will basically be Xbox Game Pass but for PS4 games at first with PS5 games coming later on. Tier 3 is basically Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pass where they ask you for even more money to download older games from PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP/ Additionally Playstation Now will be phased out while this new service is being rolled out. According to the rumor, the plan is for the service to be launched in Spring of 2022. Honestly this seems worse than what Nintendo did with NSO. Either way I hope everyone has access to 8TB drives, since you'll need them to download ROM sets of older consoles.

Don't worry, lads, mods will fix it! That's why PC gaming is "better".

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!

I need a new controller for my PC. Mine has been thrown and bashed against the desk so many times over the years that I don't know how much longer it's going to last. It barely stays together these days. The vibration modules have both fallen out. I prefer a wired controller, but will consider wireless. The last wireless peripherals I had was like 20 years ago and I didn't like the latency, but perhaps that's improved. I really like the Xbox controller design, feel, and compatibility with my games, but I can't find my model anymore unless I wait 4 weeks for shipping even from Amazon. I rely on the autism of /v/ to recommend me the best controller.

The New Dota 2 and Chinese-Friendly Character Design

Before you go off on me for >ASSFAGGOTS or >MOBA please shut the fuck up and listen to what I have to say. I used to play Dota 2 a lot, starting from when it was Invite-only. I played a little bit of the WC3 mod, but not extensively. What Valve was helping create looked beautiful, even before they eventually ported the game over to Source 2. The promotional artwork for the game was atmospheric and had a clear direction, and color scheme. This rant may only make most sense to veterans to the game, but I'll try to explain what changed, what my issues are, and why. Look at your release Dota 2 heroes. Morphling. Bloodseeker. Axe. Venomancer. They each had a clear color scheme thanks to their simple designs, which managed to be unique despite having to be different enough from their original models to not be sued by Blizzard. Most importantly, the characters weren't just anthropomorphic humans or big-eyed 'cute' marketing bait. The majority were still humans, but a good enough chunk of said humans had a twist or two which made them seem more than just a cookie cutter strong man or slender woman. The non-humans were threatening-looking and managed to look real (specifically, anatomically possible, in a fantastical sort of way). Dota 2's general art direction wanted the game to have a darker color scheme, but without cutting out all color 'diversity' so-to-speak. You still had colorful characters like Puck (one extreme) or Viper (the other) without them seeming tacky or messy. The (default) map as well had to follow these rules, and as a result, you had two sides with clear distinctive 'atmospheres' without the Dire side being too monochromatic. This was all Dota 2 on release, and a little bit afterwards (until...well, I'll get to that). Now look at Dota 2. The terrible decision to add cosmetics - and worst of all, COMMUNITY-MADE cosmetics - caused the art direction to go out the window, as well as each hero's color scheme. You get characters like Batrider being given cosmetics that put him on the complete opposite end of the color spectrum. You get fancy tacky cosmetics that make some heroes an absolute eyesore "but it's an expensive rare cosmetic so it's ok!" bullshit. Without even going into the gameplay aspect, which I could spend a whole 'nother thread discussion the faults thereof, the game has taken a clear paradigm shift into what I call the "China Appeal" which I will get into shortly. First, take note of the latest heroes submitted to the game. When I say new, I refer to the heroes which were not present in DotA Allstars in any capacity, like Mars, Willow, Hoodwink, Snapfire, etc. They all have friendly faces, are overdesigned, and anthropomorphic. Why do I call this the China Appeal? Well, I can't entirely explain why myself since it's more of an abstract feeling right now ( but maybe an anon can help put my thoughts into appropriate words ) but if I were to try and explain, it's something that is washed of all violence/blood/skeletons/scary, and replaced with something with big cartoonish eyes, friendly faces, and anything that might be considered 'excessive' in terms of the amount of skin shown or something 'unfamiliar'. Again, it's a little hard to explain what has remained to be somewhat abstract. Basically, Dota 2 is turning into League of Legends. I suspect this is to make the game have a wider appeal, particularly in the global (read: Chinese) market. The gameplay is also being casualized, and has been since 7.00 AT LEAST. I won't get into the gameplay aspects because, again, that's more appropriate for another thread. Look at what LoL offers and you'll see Dota 2 shifting slowly to that very thing. I've posted a picture of some LoL characters in what is a promotional artwork piece. Notice anything? Color scheme all over the place, friendly faces, nothing 'excessive', nothing too 'unfamiliar'. Unrelated to MOBA's, but look at the character designs in Genshin Impact. You see a similar problem there. Genshin Impact is a Chinese gacha game with its main fanbase originating from China, it isn't very popular in Japan compared to America and China. Compare THAT gacha to something like Fate/Grand Order's character designs. There is a distinct difference in the 'direction' each one goes in. Now anyone here can tell me which designs they prefer when comparing new Dota 2 characters to old ones. You could even compare the LoL characters that Riot straight up copied from Dota 2 in an attempt to leech off its popularity early on in League of Legends' life There's simply more creativity in what was compared to what is. Creativity is neutering itself for the global market's sake rather than letting itself fluorish and be truly unique. Companies want the 'safer' choice rather than to let their creative department make a big risk with something new and fresh. That's all I really wanted to get across in this rant. If anyone can help me pin down and explain the 'China Appeal' idea, please do. I had meant to meditate on the idea some more but I need some help.

However, I think the developers dropped the ball real hard with XCom 2, and it's all because of one simple reason. In a game where a loss can be a major setback, so you want to play it slowly with a lot of planning and thinking, they decided to add a time limit to most missions.

Let It Die 5th Anniversary

Can you believe it's been half a decade already? Man, where does the time go? Let It Die is having a 5th Anniversary event with near-infinite savings for a 2-month period. To be specific, there's a free Dustin on every Tengoku boss floor, and 5 free continues per day. There are also special login rewards, Hernia discounts, and quest rewards to make crafting extra easy. With Deathverse on the horizon, I think it's likely that 2022 will be LID's final year. Thanks for all the fun times, Uncle Death. Here's hoping Deathverse will be just as fun.

Starsector bread

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.

Games you've put up with for the character designs alone?

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has a lot of problems imo, especially the combat, but I like cute anime girls with cool energy lines all over them enough that I can't ever fully give the game up. Granted the game is playable and not super buggy, if it was I don't think anything would save it, but I've put down the game several times because the combat is such a missed opportunity for something way more engaging. I'll admit it does get better the further in you go but that may be the JRPG stockholm syndrome kicking in. So yeah, any game you would have normally put down, but put up with for aesthetics? also Nia is best

Interesting Indie games

Give me some interesting, weird or original indie games. It doesn't matter whether they are good or bad, as long as they do something interesting. Even shit like Undertale counts, or things like Golden Light or Inscryption. Something that just really plays around with interesting mechanics or concepts. I just want something somewhat experimental, whether in aesthetics, story or gameplay. >Golden Light >Inscryption >Undertale >Deltarune >Cruelty Squad >Buddy Simulator 1984 Were some of games I tried, some I liked some I didn't but they were all curious and interesting in their own ways, and I want more. I just want to get invested in something with an interesting premise whether gameplay-premise or story-premise, and just see if it sticks or not.

Remakes thread

ITT: Discuss any vidya remakes that you hated. Or any that you liked. I'll start with Link's Awakening. It's mostly a good remake. Mostly. It had a few QoL improvements that make it a better gameplay experience than the original game. You now don't have to constantly re-equip the Power Bracelet everytime you wanna pick up heavy objects like rocks. An annoying flaw that the gameboy LA had. The remake also made Manbo's song actually useful. It now lets you warp to more places and traverse the island quickly. I hated that the overworld has this noticeable blurry filter. The environment looks really fuzzy and it's an eyesore to look at. The remake also lost some charm because it removed the photo sidequest that Link's Awakening DX had. No more funny pictures to collect. And personally, I don't like how Link himself looks in the beady eye Earthbound artstyle. Every other character in the game looks fine imo. But I still find Link's design a little creepy whenever he stares at the screen with those soulless eyes.

Did he really deserve to have such a horrible fate?

despite the fact that he really did deserve it a little bit, i can't help but feel bad since he's the dude that made a game with so much potential (that's gone to waste now that he and ahad are gone)

Pokémon Company Confirm Pokémon Legends Arceus is Not an Open-World Game

The Pokémon Company have confirmed Pokemon Legends Arceus is not a truly open-world game, but seemingly more akin to Monster Hunter. Fooling absolutely everyone with bullshit marketing. Honestly I'm actually impressed, the last time someone was able to bullshit so hard was Metal Gear Solid V, although I think EVERYONE is expecting Arceus to be half assed. Still, I'm quite impressed how Game Freak continues to fuck up, yet people keep buying their shit. I think all someone needs to do to compete is to steal the base formula but actually enrich it with content. Still I figured this was worth a thread considering how they pretty much lied in their marketing. https://archive.ph/vKDHA

They have been censoring VN's intensely for years now and only get worse with each purchase. If theres no other means to support, try torrenting or erogedownload or another alternative. As for me: Was going through Tsukihime for the first time a few weeks ago had to take a break because of a hard interview and enjoyed it a lot. Music wasn't anything spectacular, but characters were fascinating and had tons of depth. Finished the Arcueid route, still need to go through all the others. Also went through another run of Sengoku Rance, trying to max out on end-game points. Its a lot more fun with overpowered characters and the Masamune family, plus got all the reinforcements, each one is cute in their own way. Probably gonna try out more from Key/Type Moon after doing Tsukihime, was very impressed with it. Any anons here try out Fate Stay/Night or any other notable VN's?

WW2 games

You might or might not be aware that Call of Duty Vanguard just released. If you didn't, I would't blame you, the game is fucking bombing, and even normalfags/kotaku are shitting on it The game has been mocked for everything from it's performance issues to lack of content, but it's most egregious sin to me is how they butchered the WW2 setting in it, it's mind boggling. If you don't believe me, check out the COD thread in the catalog, or watch some youtube clips of multiplayer. Campaign is only 4 hours long and it's written by Sam Maggs, with about the results you would come to expect. With the news of a rumored Anime crossover for Vanguard(Attack on Titan for now, but it won't stop, Anime bundles made activision millions over the last few years and they need to make return on this shitheap somehow), I see more and more normalfags that don't usually care about this sort of thing completely shit on how historically inaccurate this game is, despite being advertised as a gritty WW2 realistic shooter. That's why I want to take advantage of the moment, and make a nice little list of BETTER WW2 games than Vanguard. If you're not completely new or underage, you would know that pretty much every single WW2 game is better than Vanguard, and there is a shit ton of them, more than I can count, and much more I haven't played. I am not the best graphic designer, but I want anons here to give me the best WW2 games you know or played here. This is a list for both normalfags and anos, made in the same style as other /v/ lists, so it can be something that is obscure or mainstream, anything will do as long as it stays faithful to the WW2 setting, meaning no censored swastikas allowed unless there is a fan patch that fixes it. Games that are fun, but take too many liberties with the setting(alternative history, zombies ect.) can also be included, but will need it's own section Also, give a little summary of what genre the game is, the premise and gameplay mechanics. Not asking for a paragraph, just a pitch. Any game genre will do, it can be an RTS, it can be a TBS, it can be an FPS, it can be anything in between, but the game has to be focused on WW2 and be as true to reality of the war as it can be. Not aiming for a certain number of games, but the more games I can shove in here, better the chance people will pick up and play something decent instead of generic leftist slop like vanguard or BFV

Skribbl.io Gamenight Thread

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!

Fire Emblem's weird direction and a possible future?

I haven't seen much discussion here or previously about Fire Emblem 3 Houses and its weird, jumbled identity. It's certainly a fascinating case when you take in account the history of Fire Emblem and ignore the localizations, because I think we're seeing a very hard shift in both stories presented in FE and developers. All this is speculation mind you. Old Fire Emblem >Made by nerds who liked 80s and 90s fantasy anime and DnD >Series from 1 up to 10 were about fantasy Europe being the good guys mostly and fighting against dragons, undead and some dark priests mostly >Series jerked off fantasy France mostly >In an ironic twist, they depicted Macedonia as megalomaniacal and later humbled as a nod to Alexander the Great >Big bad was mostly Fantasy Britain but thanks to Alm this stopped >Fantasy Skandinavia got two games and somehow was connected to fantasy Thrace >Fantasy Greece also got two games and was connected to Arthurian / Roland legends fighting against Messopotamian deities and dragons >FE9 and 10 were fantasy Crimean recreating Crimean legends featuring Guts from the Berserk series >The games are loved in Japan, many series exist thanks to Kaga's idea of making Lazer Squad into an RPG as well >Fire Emblem grows by adding Kaga's ideas and by trading ideas with the series that sprouted thanks to them, like SRW <FE11 and 12 were remakes <We all know how uber shit 12 was and how it almost killed the franchise <The less said about Kris the better Fire Emblem's final game >Awakening starts >Its mostly new staff >Decide to make a game that is an amalgamation of all the previous games, somehow >They manage to do it on zero budget >Story is fantasy Francish Kingdom, now a Fantasy Franc kingdom post-fantasy Charlemagne, fighting against fantasy Persia, founded by fantasy Brettons that became a cult and fucked over fantasy France and fantasy Brittain a 1000 years ago >(you) are some retarded amnesiac that buff Marth finds while travelling >Buff Marth is heralded along with his sister as the new coming of Marth and the most important people in the universe <Obviously evil guy tells (you) that (you) are actually the most important person in the whole universe and that (you) are the true ubermensch >(you) are actually some retarded bookworm with 0 social skills and the only cool thing you have is a weird tattoo <Turns out that being an ubermensch according to the cult means having a suitable body for the fucking Dragon Gimli, the ender of Ragnarok, to inhabit and destroy the world >Shit pants <Time travel also happens <In the nip version, it is implied that (your) kid, Marc, isn't from the same timeline and they're an alternate universe (you) that travelled with Lyn, Eliwood and Hector, just like (you) are implied to have done as well >Story basically concludes with fantasy France, fantasy Russia, who also happen to magically have some fantasy Ainu people among them, fantasy Brittain and (you) basically stop Ragnarok and save the world forever <Gameplay is weirdly balanced but one can make it work, depending on what Fire Emblem he liked in the past >Game is treated with respect in Japan, it's the ultimate closure <Game seels like hotcakes in the west <It's the ultimate waifu-husbando simulator and eugenics program <Localization botches all the references and connections to almost ALL previous Fire Emblems and the nods to specific things that nips knew, like Priam named Paris because Ike was originally named Paris in order to hit home that he hailed from fantasy Troy >Nami Komoru steps up and is awarded for her success <She basically created just two characters and wrote about a dozen support conversations but she also did twitter campaigns to promote the game <At the time, a certain section of tumblr that stalked japanese twitter for cult-of-personality tweets caught wind of it and spread the word and a boost in sales happened so here we are Fire Emblem helmed under Nami Komoru >Let's have a new start for Fire Emblem >Sounds good, we got a new team, new budget <Nami Komoru is at the helm, gets total control of the project, contracts 5 differen expensive

Its been a while since we had a nice nep thread. >What neps are ya nepping? >Are you having fun? >Favorite girls? >Any cool nep-related shit you found?

Neptunia ReVerse is out <An "updated and enhanced" version of Re;Birth 1 <A remake of a remake (and this isn't the only time they've done this) <Censorstation 5 exclusive Fucking hell Iffy. CEASE. The LEs for this one are all sold out too for anyone who was somehow interested in it. Neptunia Virtual Stars released in March <Only physically available on PS4 (but was released on Steam digitally) Its a music-based hack and slash but I haven't seen many people talk about it so idk, its a nep spinoff so don't expect much. Dimension Tripper Neptune: TOP NEP is coming out on Steam in early 2022 The spritework actually looks really pretty and not like simplistic chibi dogshit like most of the meme games they release in this kind of way. I'm genuinely shocked, it might be a cute little thing to play when it comes out. >Some pretty Nep figures are going on pre-order on Play-Asia They look pretty good: play-asia.com/search/Neptunia#fc=o:6 Basically its a pretty shit time to be a /nep/ fan. But as for other Idea Factory and Compile Heart games, they're not doing too bad: >Mary Skelter Finale was released a few weeks ago 3rd one in the series and its doing very well, everyone likes Mary Skelter.

Translation Statuses are: HDN, HDN Mk2 and Victory: NISA cancer. Re;Birth 1 and V-II: Translation is alright, no worries from these ones. Re;Birth 2: Not obviously bad at the start, but gets much worse as it goes along: in particular Neptune and Ram were screwed hard during localization. However, there is a Re;Translation made on our very own board (see above links). Re;Birth 3: Better than the original NISA translation in Victory but still quite a lot of cancer. Main game has been retranslated, translators still required to translate DLC content. All of the spin-offs: Varying translation quality. These range from cancer to mediocre. >I'm too poor to buy the games, where do I grab them? Ask the Share threads. >I want to help with the translation efforts. Ask in thread.

Valve delays the Steam Deck - will now be launching in February

Wow! Real fucking great, Valve! Delay your flagship product by months three fucking weeks before it's mean to ship, that's a good one. https://archive.md/AbrXE >The launch of Steam Deck will be delayed by two months. We’re sorry about this—we did our best to work around the global supply chain issues, but due to material shortages, components aren’t reaching our manufacturing facilities in time for us to meet our initial launch dates. >Based on our updated build estimates, Steam Deck will start shipping to customers February 2022. This will be the new start date of the reservation queue—all reservation holders keep their place in line but dates will shift back accordingly. Reservation date estimates will be updated shortly after this announcement. >Again, we’re sorry we won’t be able to make our original ship date. We’ll continue working to improve reservation dates based on the new timeline, and will keep folks updated as we go.

/gameclub/ Thread - Shin Megami Tensei

I'll go ahead and make one new /gameclub/ thread for the time being since the previous OP retired, thanks for everything bud! >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: We're going back to the basics, well sort-of. Due to a lack of a proper poll since /gc/ OP stepped down, I took it upon myself to pick a random game to play this time around. Therefore, to celebrate the release of the upcoming SMTV, we are playing the original Shin Megami Tensei. Where everything almost started, MTI&II are great games on their own rights and even got remade for the SFC (with worse music), but they are a bit too archaic to be enjoyable by your average Joe. The most accesible version of this game for non-Japanese speakers at the moment would be the English fan-translated GBA port of the PS1 remake which features several QoL upgrades such as item descriptions and overhauled graphics over the SFC original while losing some of its brooding atmosphere. A worthy sacrifice. The translation is actually an official localization ported from the long-abandoned and currently unplayable on modern hardware iOS port. >Shin Megami Tensei is a post-apocalyptic role-playing video game developed and published by Atlus. Originally released for the Super Famicom in 1992 in Japan, it has been ported to multiple systems and eventually released in the West for iOS in 2014. It is the third game in the Megami Tensei series and the first in the central Shin Megami Tensei series. The gameplay uses first-person navigation of dungeons and turn-based battles against demons. The player can recruit demons as allies by talking to them rather than fighting them, and two to three demons can be fused to create new demons. >The story follows a player-named protagonist who lives in near-future Tokyo. When a portal to the realm of demons is opened accidentally by a scientist named STEVEN and is held by a commander named Gotou, who believes demons and humans can coexist, United States officials order a nuclear attack on Tokyo. Transported with two other supporting characters thirty years into the future, the protagonist finds the Earth ruined by a demon invasion, which is now the stage for an escalating conflict between the Order of Messiah and the Ring of Gaia, conflicting cults who wish to bring about kingdoms for their respective patron deities (YHVH and Lucifer). The story is influenced by moral decisions the protagonist makes, aligning him either with the Order, the Ring of Gaia, or setting him up as an independent agent. >From the start of the production, Atlus staff saw Shin Megami Tensei as a chance to create a game with the company's brand on it. The staff saw it as a remake of the previous Megami Tensei game; because of this, they knew what was going to happen in the story, and the development went smoothly. The story went through multiple revisions, and many settings were inspired by the staff's personal lives. The character and demon designs were done by Kazuma Kaneko, who used mythical figures and multiple clothing styles in his designs. Critical and commercial reception for the game have been highly positive, and its success helped launch Atlus as a developer and publisher, along with popularizing the Megami Tensei series. FUN FACT There is some strange censorship between the versions. Early in the game, you dream of a strange ceremony with a priest and bizarre guards. In the Super Famicom, PlayStation and Game Boy Advance versions, they're clothed, but are completely without pants in the PC Engine and Mega CD versions. (HG101)

Fork this game!

How about a thread where we play armchair game designer? TF2 Will probably be played as long as internet systems exist to allow it, but with the decline in official support, it'd be nice to have a worthy successor pop up. If I were leading the creation of a TF2-like I'd do the opposite of what Overwatch did in several specific ways. Aside from not charging a high entrance free with microtansactions on top and portraying the characters as "heroes," I'd have fewer "classes" with more customization as opposed to a large cast of characters with fixed abilities each. Specifically I'm thinking of grouping classes with similar roles and having a single "base" that can choose between features from them. This would allow for combinations of abilities, and possibly a meta that's prone to shifting. However a individual loadout would be limited by a number of slots that would at best match the simpler classes. Options like the disguise kit and cloaking would possibly take the same slot and not be usable together.

Gust drops PS5 support - The "Laugh at PS5" Thread

Atelier Sophie 2 has been announced for PC, Switch and PS4, but not PS5 despite Ryza 2 getting a PS5 version. The official website is actually explicit about this, noting the PS5 version of Ryza 2 doesn't qualify players for the bonus costumes unlocked by having saves for older games. https://www.koeitecmoeurope.com/sophie2/ Famitsu's sales tracking for the last full week of September are out: The only PS5 titles to make the top 30 are multiplats, and those sell a fourth or a fifth of their PS4 counterpart, while weekly hardware sales are half that of Switch despite Switch having been around for years and the PS5 having barely sold 1 million units total in Nippon. https://archive.ph/0qSqR For comparison, 1 year after its release the ill-fated Wii U had already sold 118,760 more than the PS5 has currently. If PS5 sales in Nippon continue at roughly their current rate, the PS5's year one sales will be within 10,000 units of the Wii U's total sales in Nippon, and if they fall even the slightest bit further it will actually wind up selling less. https://archive.ph/MiK3a

/gameclub/ Thread - Resident Evil 2

Oh! Sorry about that, Babe. I thought you were one of them... >What's the /gameclub/? It's a thread where we play a game and talk about it. Try out something you might have never played, share your thoughts, compare scores, and have fun. GAME: From survival horror to survival horror, Halloween's pick is Resident Evil 2 for the Playstation! >Resident Evil 2 is a 1998 survival horror video game developed and published by Capcom for the PlayStation. The player controls Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield, who must escape Raccoon City after its citizens are transformed into zombies by a biological weapon two months after the events of the original Resident Evil. The gameplay focuses on exploration, puzzles, and combat; the main difference from its predecessor are the branching paths, with each player character having unique storylines, partners and obstacles. >Resident Evil 2 was produced by Resident Evil director Shinji Mikami, directed by Hideki Kamiya, and developed by a team of around 50 over 21 months. The initial version, commonly referred to as Resident Evil 1.5, differed drastically; it was canceled when it was around two thirds complete after Mikami decided it was inadequate. The final design introduced a more cinematic presentation. >Resident Evil 2 received acclaim for its atmosphere, setting, graphics, audio, scenarios, and overall gameplay, as well as its improvements over the original game, but with some criticism towards its controls, voice acting and certain gameplay elements. It has appeared on a number of lists of the best video games ever made. It is the best-selling Resident Evil game for a single platform and has sold more than 6 million copies across all platforms. It was ported to Windows, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast, and GameCube, and a modified 2.5D version was released for the Game.com handheld. The story of Resident Evil 2 was retold and built upon in several later games, and has been adapted into a variety of licensed works. It was followed by Resident Evil 3: Nemesis in 1999. A remake was released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows in 2019. (via Wikipedia) FUN FACT: Claire's character started development as Elza Walker, a motorcycle racer sporting a spiffy red and white racing suit. Also, Leon's design was apparently influenced by the game artist's pet bloodhound.

Etrian Odyssey thread

What's your favorite version? I've played I, II, III, IV, Untold and now am playing V. My favorite is probably III, but IV is great as well. Really, I just want to complain about some of the stuff in V. The map icons absolutely SUCK. IV had an X and a circle to mark various events, for example. V deleted those and added more floor colors but those are pretty non-specific and can't be seen from under the other icons. Then they added casual things like the ability to spam "Full Retreat" several times in a row. In the older games when a FOE cornered you, you could be fucked. A skyscraper sized boulder falls on you? No problem, game will magically keep you alive at 1 HP. Poison event? Same thing. This just isn't why I play those games. I want adventure, I want danger, I want DEATH. The only reason to even add those changes is because the casuals just can't be bothered to git gud. Even though they already have their "basic bitch" mode. Just leave the "advanced" mode as one where a deadly poison actually causes death, okay?

After installing, before pressing play click the icon in pic-related to customize your resolution because the default resolution is 720p windowed. And you can just create an account through the launcher. You'll get instructions on how to make your account through the launcher. Also the game supports Xbox or Playstation controllers. Although getting used to the keyboard controls only took an anon about a day or two.

The Zelda Formula

I've played a decent chunk of the Zelda games by this point and feel that the series has evolved enough to fully realize those feelings evoked by looking at the concept art for the earlier games, which, in my opinion, is the end goal. BotW is effectively a reboot more inspired by the earlier games as opposed to the ones inspired by ALttP and eventually OoT, and while it does do plenty wrong like lacking proper dungeons, limited enemy variety, and no special equipment, I consider it to be an important step design philosophy and a remarkable improvement in pacing from WW, TP, and SS (as well as being the better game in general). With the new one releasing and being a direct sequel, we can be reasonable and assume that it will be like the first game, so instead of focusing on that, how do you want hypothetical subsequent Zelda games to feel? Also, post Zelda girls.

Ideas for a game: 1. No RNG, every roll is made by direct comparison between various values. So luck is removed as an element in the game. 2. There's one resource that can be used to improve your character, exchange for things, use in crafting or repair, consume for health or mana, etc. This multiuse resource is of vital importance to the plot and world building. It's found, created, purchased, earned as rewards, and more, but the amount you could get in a period of time is small enough comparative to the amount of it you require to make you conserve it. 3. Your health has three levels, on the outside is your shield, which recovers fast, but has a low capacity. On the inside is your body, which has high capacity but recovers slowly, the armor lies in between, and falls in the middle stat wise as well, all three are self regenerating, but recovery can be sped up with consumables. 4. Melee weapons can be used to attack at close range, or be thrown to attack at a distance, thrown weapons can be manually recovered, melee weapons have a durability that is reduced with every attack, this serves as their version of ammo, when durability runs out, the weapon breaks, and has significantly reduced effectiveness, durability can be restored with consumables, which can restore them from a broken state any number of times. 5. Ranged weapons can be used to attack from a distance, they can also be used for melee attacks, which reduces their durability, and just like melee weapons, they can also be thrown, ranged weapons firing attacks consumes ammo and durability with each shot, if there's not enough ammo for it, or if the weapon is broken, the weapon cannot fire a shot. 6. You are great at stealth because you are invisible and silent, you can move faster than they can (a mode where time only passes when you move, mana drains quickly while in it, so it could only be up for a limited duration, best used in short bursts), and you can hear their thoughts (also clues you into their direction and proximity on top of letting you know about their alertness to your presence), see through their eyes, and see their range of sight (like flashlight beams) and hearing (you see the range of sounds and a circle around the enemies), you can imitate any sounds or voices, as well as throw your vocals around to lure them to the location, and the ability to see in the dark and see the outline of tagged enemies through walls, not to mention your skill in parkour, acrobatics, infiltration, technology, sabotage, rigging, and other related skills. And this is just the stuff you have by default. To compensate for how many advantages your character is given where it comes to being sneaky, the stealth is realistic with regard to the enemies behaviors and reactions. 7. The enemies use realistic approaches to take you down, none of the hidden programming that exists to make things easier or more manageable, these enemies have no such chivalry, they approach you like how humans would fight your character in reality. It's not going to be fair, and you aren't going to feel powerful, you will be prey, a scared victim trying to survive, doomed by just one mistake. 8. Aside from the above, the game's violence is 100 percent realistic, and killing is done with a brutal and satisfying efficiency, as the game goes on, your character becomes more and more adept at dispatching their opposition quickly, quietly, and cleanly. 9. Open world, stealth oriented, fpsrpg, with metroidvania elements and in themed the horror genre. The enemies and setting itself are disturbing and dangerous. Everything about it is immerssive and believable.

The "trinity" of vidya

One of the things that I have been doing in regards to reading lately is cycling between reading fictional, historical, and educational books, and sort of "planning" out which books I'll be reading when I finish what. And, I was wondering if this is at all applicable to vidya. One of the problems that I have had for the past few months is that it feels like a chore to want to complete any game I start, no matter how much fun or interest I had with the title, and I remember encountering a similar problem when I was reading books until I developed that system. So, I was looking to see if anyone would have any idea on how to basically sort (all) video games in three separate categories that are each distinct from the other. And, do this for the purpose that I don't end up wearing myself out by accidentally restricting myself to one game type. So far, the closest I can think of are games that contain a story, games that lack a story but still have some sort of goal, and games that just continue on endlessly. OR categorizing games between vintage era (Pre-90's), evolution era (90's-2000's), and modern era (Everything since the 2010's).

Saints Row Reboot Delayed to August 23; No Changes to Story or Characters

Continuing with the fall of AAA video games, Volition has just announced that the new Watch Dogs Saints Row Reboot has been delayed from February to August, blaming the ///Kung Flu\\\ for not meeting their internal quality standards.

Honestly I'm unsure how to feel about this since I'll be basically turning 30 on the 17th and I was 10 years old when this thing launched. I feel a sort of uneasiness as I grow older, however this isn't about me but rather the Xbox brand as a whole, and how they're supposedly having some big announcements at the show. Could be a shitload of nothing, however it could also be where Dragon's Dogma 2 is announced considering E3 is where DMC5 was announced. So anything's possible at these events. Either way the show will air on Monday, November 15 at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. GMT I hope you're ready to play as a gay bus

Are hentai games self defeating?

First of all, While I feel like this is more of a /v/ topic, I understand this miiight not be considered as much, so if this tread needs to be dropped thats fine. I've seen and played a lot of hentai games with surprisingly impressive visuals and gameplay recently, but every time I pick one up I kinda end up feeling like the hentai part ends up feeling at best like an optional side thing that doesnt matter, or at worst something that stops you in the middle of gameplay to watch a cutscene or quick time even that you've seen several times before to the point where its gotten old. And if I do decide to use it as fap material I feel like its way more effort to get to the sexy stuff than it would be to just look st something online. That got me thinking, is it even possible to make a hentai game that doesnt make sacrifices to be hentai, or to meet the requirements of being a game without making it annoying to get to the porn? Personally while I think its possible your options for games to make are way more limited.

Advanced Wars By Web (AWBW)

https://awbw.amarriner.com/ >what is AWBW? <AWBW is a fan-made site where you can play Advance Wars online against other players from around the world, all for free. AWBW is designed with the 'mail chess' concept in mind, where all players of a match take their turns whenever they are available to do so. This means that games are typically played at a slower pace over the course of several days or weeks. <While AWBW is primarily based on and plays like Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, it incorporates additional elements from Advance Wars: Dual Strike. This includes all units, COs, game mechanics, and more, for a completely unique Advance Wars experience. No features from Advance Wars Days of Ruin are available. <Additionally, there are 11 new custom armies to choose from, allowing for games and maps that have up to a total of 16 players. Outside of these few custom additions, no community customization is accepted, in order to maintain AWBW as a (mostly) faithful representation of the original cartridge games. >Useful Info: Countries, COs, etc. https://awbw.amarriner.com/chart.php https://awbw.fandom.com/wiki/Advance_Wars_By_Web_Wiki For additional practice or experience, please refer to the original AW games.

Still, with this game and Saints Row bombing it's kinda sad that these types of games are basically gonna die as a result, but then again the less games with an empty "open world" the better chance we can get better more condensed games, but that's just me being an optimist.

Games like this: A thread for seeking reccommendations

So I was wondering if there are more recent games that have similar features to one old game, and decided it would be better to have a general thread for this kind of thing than to drop it in QTTDTOT. One old game I liked the idea of is Operation Innerspace. The game has you flying spaceships based on a world based on your PC's files. Aside from being a windows 3.1 program, the game is designed around hard drive sizes of the time, not today's systems that have gargantuan storage in comparison. So I was wondering if there are any more modern games that follow the premise of playing in "the world inside your computer" Ideally using your files to better simulate the idea. (Look at the specs in that screenshot. That was "current" when they made this game.)

Achievements and Trophies

Nowadays it seems like achievements, trophies and stuff are an integral part of gaming and I'm wondering why. I never actually tried to get 100% achievements in a game mostly because I play older games that don't have an achievement system, so I wanna ask you what's your stand on them. Do you think they are a cancer that swaps actual rewards for a jpeg? Or do you think they're some fun challanges that add spice to a game? And what about something like retroachivements, that tries to bring this culture to retro gaming? I think they don't bring harm by themselves but man, platinum seekers are some of the most tiring people on this planet.

Am I the only one who feels the Steam Deck was announced too early?

The Steam Deck was announced too early in my opinion. Yes it was smart of them to basically ride off the disappointment of the Nintendo Switch OLED, and any smart business would've likely done the same. However most people are gonna will likely have to wait till 2022 for their device, this in turn will make people who can't wait pay over double maybe even triple the price for a new or used Steam Deck. I'm hoping that Valve is able to sort everything out before December or at least delay the December units to early 2022, mainly so they can get their supply in order so they can ship out as many units as possible. However another another issue Valve has is "hype flow", I'm sure I don't need to explain the concept of "hype flow", but I'll do it anyway. Normally companies like Nintendo and Capcom as an example, hold back information in order to ramp up interest over time, and make sure people don't forget about the game, by keeping their attention as long as possible. It's why Smash Bros sells as well as it does, because normalfags are always constantly guessing and speculating information about the game, thus keeping the game in the spotlight and in turn keeping it relevant. That said the Steam Deck isn't a game like say Smash Bros or a VS game where you can hold back information to get people more excited for the product, it's a portable PC with better performance than anything on the market, for a much lower price. We basically already know everything about the Steam Deck, despite the launch being more than six months away for most people who are gonna try and wait till after the Holidays to get one. Launch games won't be anything special either, since it's just going to be everything available on PC. I don't see third party developers or even Valve themselves taking advantage of the extra features of the Steam Deck via Steam Input at launch. Support for the unique functions of the device, such as touch, motion, trackpads, R4/R5, etc. will likely come a year after the Steam Deck has launched, and will likely be a niche market unless Valve makes a Steam Controller 2 or a hollow version of the Steam Deck made so you can take advantage of the unique feature set of the Steam Deck on a traditional PC, which is fine, but not something that'll happen during the first year of the Steam Deck's lifespan. In any case, I think Valve's biggest issue is one of supply, they clearly can't meet the demand for the device, and have basically admitted as much by saying that "they would like competition in the space". However even with all these problems, the Steam Deck will likely be the biggest item of the Holiday season and beyond. That said, if they're able to over come said logistics, they'll likely revolutionize the handheld gaming space into something completely different. However I can see the hype dying down come Q2 2022 when people start getting upset over the lack of supply, from Valve not being able to meet the demand, therefore diminishing said demand in the process. Closing out, I'd like to ask /v/ this, "Do you think the Steam Deck should've been announced later in the year? or was taking advantage of Nintendo's incompetence the best way to help promote the Steam Deck to the masses".

I remember when Heavy Rain was announced or around the time it was coming out, there was someone that said "It's something that has NEVER been done before in a video game!".

Hi /v/ I'm looking for a lighthearted game in an anime aesthetic where you make friends with the villains. I do not mean it in the same manner as for example Undertale did it, rather I mean a game with a serious plot, which has likeable villains that don't get killed or shat on, but are defeated before joining your party. I don't mean games where you can recruit monsters like SMT, I mean games with named antags that become your friends/allies after you defeat them like for example Magus in Chronno Trigger. The thing is, I would prefer for it to be on a bigger scale than just one character, especially if the game allows you to make friends/allies with more than just one character from the cast. Killing monsters is okay but I do not want to kill named characters. Whatever the reason for the characters forgiving the villains and befriending them is doesn't really matter, as long as they aren't killed or humiliated/shat on. The MC shouldn't be a villain protagonist or be shat on either. I already know of the existence of Swordcraft Story.

8/v/ The Musical: Prototype Edition

Let's start a musical For those who aren't aware of this, 4chan /v/ started something similar back in 2013/2014 or so. I figured this would be a good opportunity for some more OC to start flowing from the website, as well as a source of fun/good memories for those involved. >What is this, exactly? To put it simply, you take a song with vocals (preferably more popular songs so they can be recognized and thus the parody will be more appreciated) and change the lyrics - Weird Al style - to be more fitting of a video game or video game culture. Anons will then perform the lyrics (and the chorus, depending on the song) and someone (me) will compile it all into a full song, sometimes accompanied with a music video if there are any good ideas. Cuckchan's editions are more often than not related to shitposting or board wars, so for this project, I'd like to steer clear of that queer shit, and just focus on video games or video game culture. >Where do I start? The first obvious step is picking out a song. Vocals need to be 'primary' rather than a glorified chorus, otherwise there isn't much point in a parody. I'll recommend that if you nominate a song, at least give some thought into the lyrics or the 'direction' that they should go. You shouldn't just pick any song and randomly choose what the direction should be, they should somewhat fit into the tone of the original song and even the original lyrics. Also, as it should be obvious, when making lyrics, don't just change one word - a perfect parody changes about 80% or more of the words, and should 'fit in' to the original lyrics like most parody songs you see. I've mentioned it already, but listen to Weird Al Yankovic or Rucka Ali for some ideas on how a good parody song sounds. This is a prototype thread so improvements can be added to the OP and to gauge interest. Please let me know what you think, I can be reached at thisthread@valvesoftware.com

/gameclub/ Thread - Dragon Quest III

One more for the road... >What's the /gameclub/? It's a thread where we play a game and talk about it. Like GameFly, but free! GAME: We're playing Dragon Quest III for the SNES, in honor of its composer Koichi Sugiyama's passing. He was a very storied and skilled man and I can't really do his work (about 35 years of compositions!) justice, so here's an article from the thread made after his death (>>436203): https://archive.ph/xSHh9 >Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation, titled Dragon Warrior III when initially localized to North America, is a role-playing video game developed by Chunsoft and published by Enix. It is the third installment in the Dragon Quest series and was first released for the Family Computer (Famicom) in Japan and later for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in North America. The game saw an enhanced remake for the Super Famicom (the Japanese release of the Super NES) in 1996 and the Game Boy Color in 2001, and a port to mobile phones and the Wii in 2009 and 2011. A version of the game for Android and iOS was released in Japan on September 25, 2014, and worldwide as Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation on December 4, 2014. It was the first time the game was given an official English subtitle. Later in 2021, another remake of the game titled Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake[, based on Octopath Traveler's style, was announced during the franchise's 35th anniversary livestream. >The first three Dragon Quest games are part of the same story, and Dragon Warrior III is the first game chronologically, as well as the third game that features the hero Erdrick (Loto in the Japanese releases and Game Boy Color localization). The story follows "the Hero" who is tasked with saving the world from the archfiend Baramos. Gathering a group of companions into a party, the Hero must travel the world, stopping at various towns and locations, and make their way to the Demon Lord Baramos' lair. (via Wikipedia) >Aside from a graphical and sound overhaul and other typical tweaks of a remake, [the SNES] version of the game introduces a Thief class, more weapons, armors, items, and spells, a collectible mini medals sub-quest, searchable background objects, an extra dungeon (Sky World) with new monsters, and an additional boss monster. The game also includes a personality mechanic that effects how party members develop their attributes. Additionally, the game also has the five minigame boardgame tracks known as Pachisi (later known in the series as Treasures n' Trapdoors) added to it. (via Mobygames) FUN FACT: Sugiyama composed the music for every Dragon Quest game until his death. Even most (if not all?) of its spinoffs.

DCS and other flight sims

So, you wanna be a jet jock? Since I saw no flight sim thread in the catalog I'll make my own. Before we get into games, let's get into gear. >I don't want to spend $1000 to play planes Nobody does, until they play planes. I'll recommend some starter gear for less than 500 USD, there abouts. >Stick NXT gladiator premium. The best stick you can get before you spend big money, don't waste time with anything cheaper, you'll thank me later. $150 >Throttle The only real option I've found is the thrustmaster t.16000m throttle. 130-200 usd depending on how long ago they released a batch. >Pedals VKB T-rudders. 215 usd. Full metal and adjustable, best for the price, don't really want to bother with cheaper. That said, unless you plan on helicopters you don't need rudder pedals. Tight on budget? Skip these, but you'll enjoy having them if you can. >Head tracking Very important, you'll wonder how you lived without it. (You didn't) Many options, my personal recommend is the grassmonkey puck IR (or the box one made by the same). 80 bucks. There is track IR, but I'm not sure it's worth it for the ever increasing price. >What I need? Stick, throttle (Some exceptions. If you like ww1 rise of flight can be played fine without a throttle, just use the wheel on the stick. For DCS, it's needed.), and head tracker. Pedals are optional. (Unless you plan on playing helicopters.) Now! The planes, DCS comes free with two planes, an unarmed P-51 and the Su-25t. The Su-25 is a simple flight model like the Flaming cliffs 3 planes. (Mig-29, Su-27/33, F-15) Good for beginners. The best part is- >The mods. I'm not going to get into the bought planes, as that's all up to what you like. (You're likely also broke from buying the gear needed.) Instead, we'll go over the free mods. Some require FC3 so pay attention to that, the ones mentioned next do not. They vary in quality but my favorites are the Super tucano, the Pucará, the F-104, and the best mod quality wise- The A-4 skyhawk. There are many more of various qualities, but you'll find the ones mentioned are oriented toward ground attack. (Exception being the F-104, unless you're autis- German.) They are completely free and easily installed and the best place to start without having to actually pay for the game. >Rise of flight World war 1, what else needs to be said? Well, the planes are sold in packs. You'll notice in flight simming companies Nickle and dime you. You can buy individually from their website for $3 or so a piece, with regular sales. On steam they come in packs. If you buy from steam, you can't buy from the site and vise versa. Pick one, packs or one plane at a time. All of the planes can be had on sale for cheap. >The classic Il-2 1946. Dirt cheap, or just pirate it. No shortage of mods for pretty much everything, but quite old if you're autistic about graphics. Still has some of the best plane destruction physics though. Do you play any, what do you recommend, and what's your planefu?

I've been playing Last Bible III, not only is it one of the best Megaten spin-off games i've played, but it's also quite a competent DQ clone that can stand on its own regardless of its pedigree. A surprising amount of demons have been turned into either DQ style goofy monster or cute girls, I don't know about you but that's a big selling point for me. All your main human party members have their own distinctive gimmicks, one of them for example can craft items and weapons out of junk you give to him, kinda like Jeff from MOTHER 2. The combat is your standard DQ fare but with added Demon negotiation, it's quite robust and many of the more iconic demons have their own unique dialogue. It's slightly easier than your average MT game and less punishing but the encounter rates are quite high so fast-forwarding is encouraged. Soundtrack has been stellar so far and the writing is very charming, with every character having a poppy personality that makes them stand out, it's a very comfy homely-feeling game that reminds me of being a kid and playing Chrono Trigger on my PS1.

The Future of TF2: NOT A DRILL Edition

>try to post this in the preexisting TF2 thread >it's anchored and hasn't been updated in 2 weeks Don't know if any of you are in the loop but a few days ago Valve took down DLs for Open Fortress and TF2 Classic and the devs for both were hinting at things to come in the future for retail, leading to rampant speculation. Now the details are out. >as has been unofficially confirmed for years, Volvo is finished with TF2 from a development perspective; they don't want to dedicate any of their current staff to make new content >the takedowns were C&Ds and the "leaked e-mail" that has been dismissed as fake was real, since TF2C and OF were based off leaked Source engine code from last year and Valve's legal counsel said they had no choice but to go this route >it is "temporary" and the "big thing that is potentially coming" is official Steam Workshop content integration and mod support for Team Fortress 2; essentially, Valve wants to Left 4 Dead 2 the game with everything good and bad about it >they've tasked the "community" to come forward with interest and input into this proposal as well as what they may need from a modding perspective to make this happen; many significant modders are already trying to draft up statements >one chance and a turning point for the game's future, a life-support future anyways Thoughts? From a realist perspective, I understand everything being brought forward and its plausibility based on past historic precedent. I'm not going to pass up being able to click a button and replace every model with Dead Or Alive girls, and there have been ongoing community projects that may breathe new life into the game like a Medieval mode expansion that could be realized into a larger capacity should this initative succeed. On the other hand, from a gaming perspective, I don't need modding to be accessible or corraled into Workshop either and arguably even if it's a net positive for everybody if it succeeds, it's not what the playerbase has been wanting from Valve or modders all these yearsl you need only look at Creators.tf to see why it does not work. In particular, the proposal is going to dive deep into the heart of Valve's relationship with the community, the community itself and its penchant for conflicts and drama (example: TYLER MCVICKERS), and Valve's failures at handing their titles off to the community; see the Last Stand update for Left 4 Dead 2 and its strife behind the scenes. Considering Valve is in its current state, officially handing the game off to the modders is not going to save retail from its arbitrary interference like disabling F2P chat or deciding that official servers aren't going to support certain mods. Even if the details aren't fully clear yet I'm still not seeing any real difference from the current status quo beyond more explicit acknowledgement of mods to new players that you already can't get from the community server browser, a far cry from something like explicitly reincorporating community servers back into casual rotation.

Monster Hunter G is getting a PC port

>Capcom have noted on their Japanese website that Monster Hunter G will be coming to Windows PC, via Steam. <The original Monster Hunter launched in 2004, with Japan getting the expanded G version one year later with additional G-class difficulty quests, weaponry, and monster subspecies. Monster Hunter G was later ported to Nintendo Wii in 2009. Now, Twitter user Oliver Campbell has discovered Monster Hunter G is listed as coming to Steam on Capcom’s Japanese website. A Steam release would also suggest, but not outright confirm, a western release. No new information was shared on the website. <The move could be deemed unsurprising, given the success of Monster Hunter World; a far cry for Monster Hunter G not coming to the west due to the series not being popular enough at the time. Monster Hunter World was recently announced to have sold 20 million copies, while the Iceborne expansion (as of September 30th) has sold 8.5 million copies. <However, will G be a faithful 1:1 port of the original; or will newer features, graphics, and quality of life features be included? Could the game be even adjusted to appeal to new and modern fans who played because of World? We have reached out to Capcom for comment. https://nichegamer.com/monster-hunter-g-steam/ https://archive.ph/a4Rp8

Is it really so difficult to make an emulation handheld in the form and shape of a psp go? Does Sony have a coppyright on a sliding screen gaming device that prevents others from making their own, nearly every new retro handheld is either a psp brick, a clam shell with no second screen or some other abomination. >just buy a psp go That shit can barely emulate n64 and the controls are limited. Plus the newer devices can emulate most 6th gen now.

PSO2 New Genisis is shit

Regular PSO2 is great. However, they packed a second MMO that's really shit for very little reason. PSO2 had issues, but they get fixed almost immediately Regular PSO2 <Main issue was power balance, after a certain point near 75 enemies go down like wet tissue paper >Solved this by adding new difficulties so it's a non issue <"Scion Class" classes eclipsed basic classes, egregiously overpowered compared to the base six and 3 extra classes >Balanced later by increasing overall damage of the basics allowing all classes to catch up, Scions are now fast and dodgy compared to base classes but can't take a hit for shit, so now people with high skill levels and people with low skill levels can contribute in missions >Basic classes are also extremely customizable and get more moves in general, meaning it becomes variety vs specialization, and Scion classes have to be played in very specific ways very (weapon switching for Hero, tagging for Phantom, pick one weapon and stick with it for Etoile, complex inputs for Luster) <Summoner class was considered girlfriend mode due to auto attacks >Until you realize that the class is extremely autistic spreadsheet management shit if you want to be good and they can't take a hit, so dodging and positioning are king New Genisis PSO2 >Game dropped with fancy movesets but none of them have any depth or reward because they got rid of Perfect Attack timing for some godawful reason >Player characters are more mobile but as a result all bosses either do not sit still for a second or fly out of your fucking reach at all times and ranged classes do shit all damage >Skills are multi stage attacks like Scion moves from PS02 but it's all essentially the same shit since every weapon has the same three classes of attack >There are 3 spells and none of them are healing or support, nor can they be used outside of the magic class' weapons, meaning you may as well just go gun or melee >All healing and support is relegated to shitty cooldown skills >No interesting setups like Hero/Bouncer Megiverse where you can vampire health with a quick cast and attacks >took players from PSO2 and the playerbase is split now meaning the old servers are near desolate on a bad day >None of the classes have real gimmicks >Extremely slow progression and leveling >no world besides the one open world you get at the start Who the fuck thought splitting development was a good idea

Cosmic B

>What's Cosmic Break? TPS gacha game with bots and waifus, sadly you get stuck in a faction until the next season lands >How bad is the gacha? The game got shut down once because the developers and publishers went full P2W and each new gacha implemented an unit that broke the game, you tell me >Anything else worth noting? Units come in 4 varieties: LND: Good at melee and fast runners ART: Good with guns and alpha strike, your typical tank AIR: Twice the flying time and good with beams SUP: Healers, buff and debuffers, a good SUP can force a 1v1 and win with anyone The parts and weps have slots to customize There's a few single-player modes but they're a pale imitation of C21 Steel Senki... like Cosmic Break but as an open world RPG, from the same developers You can re-skin your char at such low in-game currency price that it might as well be free >Ok anon we know what Cosmic Break is, what's the deal and why the newfag thread? ...I got Cosmic Break's beta files, i think Cyber$tep tried to nuke them from the internet along with a thread where i found them, i actually wanted to exchange them for C21's files because open world rpg with bots... and Medarots collab, but having a smartanon use them instead of being nuked by Cyber$tep or lost to time is better both in the short and long run https://www.mediafire.com/file/8l57mq7i6vugr22/cosmicbreak_package_shanda101118.7z/file https://rapidshare.io/Xo8/cosmicbreak_package_shanda101118.7z

This game "growing up" just came out and has rekindled my interest in the genre, but despite having plenty of smug lolis it reeks of tumblr and I fear the worst for it. If I'm right about it I'd like to have some fallback games to play instead. The ones I know of are princess maker and ciel fledge. Are there any others worth playing?

What are the most obtuse, complex, deep, and feature bloated games you know of? I know everyone and their grandmum is gonna say "dwarf fortress!" but it's only been in development for 2 decades, which is dwarfed by Nethack's 3 and a half decades. How much of that development time was spent actively and efficiently is obviously up for debate, but there's a reason why "the devs think of everything" meme came from nethack and not dwarf fortress.

New Peripeteia Demo & a Kickstarter

Dunno if any of you fags remember that Peripeteia demo from a couple months ago, but there's a new one. I'm pretty tired, so please excuse me if the OP isn't great >What is it? You're an autistic anime cyborg in post-Soviet Poland, and you explore fuckheug Hammer maps and shoot shit. You could call it an immersive sim, it has that FPS/RPG/stealth mix you get in those kinds of games but with a way bigger focus on exploration. The idea is that, outside the tutorial, there is very little spoonfeeding and you can find a lot of the mechanics and cool shit yourself. >Who are you faggots? Mostly /agdg/fags, many of whom initially worked on a Teagan fangame but got derailed from that. You might remember the Beezlebox dev or Ika (the Red Sky/Sigma Engine guy), maybe Kowloonanon if you really followed the /agdg/ threads, but the guys behind those and some others are on board. Sadly, they've been pretty busy with the game lately so they haven't posted much in a while. >What's new in this demo? The tutorial's been improved, for one, and a level from the previous demo has been remade. The apartment from previous demos has been brought back and expanded, there's a shooting range, bugfixes, probably new bugs too, and some quality of life stuff that escapes me right now. There's some new levels and enemies that are a good way into development, but sadly they aren't quite ready for this demo and it's not like you want to spoil everything before a game's release. Seriously, sometimes it feels like developers show off every level and mechanic in trailers and leave nothing but some story elements as a surprise. >Where's the fucking Linux build? Still waiting on the move away from Unity's HDRP, also the main reason the game still isn't terribly toaster-friendly or like Proton still worth trying in Proton, somehow some people have it working in there. Kowloonanon estimates the move would take around a month and they've been focusing on other stuff lately. Development's been a lot more focused and organized lately too, they're aiming for a 2022 release date and I'm pretty sure they'll make it. That's the most important stuff, I'll save the second part and less interesting part for the next post. Here's the demo downloads in the meantime. https://shodanon.itch.io/peripeteia https://store.steampowered.com/app/1437760/Peripeteia/

Time and videogames, old age and waste

Unpopular "man shakes fist at sky" opinion time. I don't even care about most videogames anymore, even older ones. They're soulless, time consuming and for children. Also, they have secrets that aren't intuitive. Whine all you want about David Jaffe, but the guy has a point. I don't want to waste time or resources trying to figure things out. I play games to relax, turn my brain off and be entertained. If you're looking to video games to be intellectually stimulating, then you're playing games for the wrong reasons. You're literally wasting your time being the best at glorified pong just to try to dunk on people after out-autisming them. You're mistaking being good at virtual duck duck goose for a real, tangible achievement. It's absolutely pathetic, even more so because people buy into the hype because there's money to be made from people who enjoy watching high level gameplay. That's the thing though. People who only like games for RAD PLAYS or fawning over unlockables usually aren't interested in buying the game themselves nowadays. High skill or secret revealing gameplay is basically just a movie (in livestream or vod form) for people to enjoy. In contrast, genuinely good games don't have to waste your time by hiding things and bringing the flow of your gameplay to a grinding halt. They give you all the knowledge you need to make informed choices, and leave the rest up to choice and/or skill. tldr I'm old. My remaining time on this earth is both lesser and more valuable. I'm tired of having to waste it hunting down steps to get secrets and make the most of games. I'm tired of drawn out slow-paced strategy games in general. I'm tired of games that challenge you to figure out a massive resource management system then punish you for not making moderately optimal choices, thereby undermining or even defeating the point of giving players a choice in the first place. I'm tired of lengthy visual novel scenarios featuring characters I genuinely don't care about instead of some more familiar faces. In the end, the kind of game I'd actually like to play is one that dispenses with the pretenses, cuts right to the chase and puts a great emphasis being cool and blow some steam off without forcing you to jump through hoops or analyze complex systems to get the full gameplay experience. People who want to be challenged or go full esports can go learn to code or become drone pilots. You know "get a job." Personally, I'd rather see some of the more "hardcore" series like SMT or strategy games become more simplified, straightforward and accessible/casual instead of continuing to be up their own asses with bloat, stagnation and staying the course. I'm sorry, but this is really how it is. People give pokemon shit for removing mechanics, but I think it's a good thing, they're making them more accessible. I don't care about abilities and all that stuff, I just wanna kick ass with my best bro. The same goes for other games. As JRPGs keep playing in that bloated shit, WRPGs have cut down the chase down to fucking around as it should be. Nobody likes having to check 18390 stats, leave that autism to japs.

Autistic shit you do in games

>always make sure to save my game at save points or where you'd normally be able to, even if it's emulated or can be saved at any time. >whenever I play an RPG, try to sleep/travel/shop at sensible times and always try to eat something even though hunger isn't a mechanic >treat npcs with respect and go out of my way not to mess up their things or fuck them over if possible, reloading a save if I choose the "rude" option in a conversation >sometimes go out of my way to have a conversation with an npc even though I've already exhausted their dialogue >try to fill out every save slot before overwriting old ones What kind of autistic shit do you do?

What is the point of owning a Console anymore?

I've been thinking what is even the point of owning one anymore? Even a lot of the normalfags I know switched over to PC now granted they still play their AAA rubbish but even they have said they don't really have much reasons to own a console when PC has so much more benefits, (Free online and being able to change parts is one thing many of them have told me) now the current GPU shortage has hurt PC pretty badly but it's not like many can get new gen console either. Also Soyny, M$ and devs who mostly only put their games on Nintendo systems are putting their games on PC now, which just further brings up what justifiable reason is there to own one?
