/gameclub/ Thread - R4: Ridge Racer Type 4 Anonymous 08/03/2021 (Tue) 00:18:56 Id: 4e1205 No. 379209 [Reply]
Welcome back to the gameclub, your weekly force-fed dish of videogames! >What's the /gameclub/? It's a thread where we play a game, and talk about it, like a book club. Try out something you might have never played, share your thoughts, compare scores, and have fun. GAME: This game is powered by Namco. It's Ridge Racer, Riiiidge Racer! Remember that one? R4: Ridge Racer Type 4 for the Playstation to be specific. >R4: Ridge Racer Type 4 (Ridge Racer Type 4 in Europe) is a racing video game developed and published by Namco for the PlayStation. It is the fourth title in the Ridge Racer series and the last to be released for the PlayStation. It was later re-released on the PlayStation Network in 2011 and pre-loaded on the PlayStation Classic which was released on December 3, 2018. It is the first Ridge Racer series game on the PlayStation to use Gouraud shading on polygons. >Vehicles are earned by playing through the game's Grand Prix mode. Players select one of four teams; R.C Micro Mouse Mappy (France), Pac Racing Club (Japan), Racing Team Solvalou (Italy), and Dig Racing Team (United States), who each have varying difficulties, and one of four manufacturers; Age Solo (France), Lizard (United States), Assoluto (Italy), and Terrazi (Japan), which determines the style of car and powerslide type the player will use. In each race, the player must attempt to reach a qualifying position, with later stages requiring players to place in higher positions to qualify. Depending on the qualifying position in each race, players will be awarded a new vehicle, or an upgrade to their current one, based on their team and manufacturer, with better cars earned for reaching consistently higher positions (i.e. the best cars are earned by placing 1st in each match while the least impressive cars are earned by just clearing the minimum qualifying positions). There are a total of 320 vehicles earned by racing with every combination of team, manufacturer and qualifying position. If the players unlock all 320 cars, they will unlock an additional one modelled after Pac-Man, for a total of 321 vehicles. >The game also features Time Attack mode, in which players can attempt to get the fastest time on each course, and VS. Battle, a split-screen mode for two players (the first to appear in the home console series) and an undocumented PlayStation Link Cable mode, allowing four players to play simultaneously. Players can also create their own car decors and participate in Extra Trials against powerful prototype cars. The game is also compatible with the JogCon peripheral and the PocketStation device, which allows players to trade cars with friends. (via Wikipedia) FUN FACT: Each of the game's racing teams (RC Micro Mouse Mappy, Pac Racing Club, Racing Team Solvalou, and Dig Racing Team) are each named after a different Namco arcade game (Mappy, Pac-Man, Xevious, and Dig Dug respectively).

>>379227 >because they have been almost perfected or done to death already, the innovative ones don't get clones because they're that fucking innovative or if they do it's fucking shit I disagree. There's always a new idea waiting for a daring developer to try, and so many racing games have a really solid base to work from, it's just none of them do anything unique with it. I think the next Forza/Gran Turismo/whatever could stand out completely from the rest if it dared to do something as simple as have a really fun, well-written story, or just have some really engaging gamemodes. Of course the reason that doesn't happen is because companies are scared of innovation since it means potential failure. The Crew and Trackmania are two series that managed to be successful by focusing on something different from the competition, even if it was just having a large open-world map or strong track customization. >fun fact isn't IT'S A MAN BABY ...D-do I want to know?

Digimon games thread Anonymous 04/19/2021 (Mon) 23:05:23 Id: f70c22 No. 289170 [Reply] [Last]
Pokemon tends to stay the same but holy shit Digimon goes all over the fucking place. I loved Cyber Sleuth and plan to get the complete collection version because I never played the sequel and apparently it upgraded the first game to have all the fuckers they added in the second. You're going to come across EATER enemies in the first game pretty early so you should be looking for at least one mon with a piercing attack, you're also going to want to level up three poopmons into Platinum Sukemons and steal 9 Tactician USBs so you can insta-grind ya bois into infinity for endgame content, so do it ahead of time. Doesn't actually take as long as you think. I think the original adventure movies were trash but I think it's because life essentially ends for Japanese people when they leave school and become endless wage slaves due to japanese society. A lot of Japanese anime has that vibe lately because of all the fucking isekai/"hobo gets run over by bus and becomes overpowered" anime that's being released in the past decade, but when actually forced to tell a story that's not isekai it really shows how bleak society got over there. So aside from the absolute horribly fucked up existentialism, which is your favorite Digimon game, any recommendations?

RimWorld and Dwarf Fortress Anonymous 02/11/2021 (Thu) 22:56:15 Id: 6d9fd7 No. 234876 [Reply] [Last]
Been playing the fuck out of RimWorld the last week for the first time. Pretty addicting so far even if I suck at it, and I wanted to see what mods people were using or even just what gameplay style you had going for ideas of things to try out. I have some collection of Vanilla Expanded mods and a medieval mod, but I'm curious what shit other anons suggest running. Please post pics of your colonies too, as I want to see how badly my own stack up. Also I've been wanting to get into Dwarf Fortress, but I have yet to dive into that because a friend of mine warned me that it was really tough to get into. Any advice for a first time player? I've recently been watching a bunch of videos on it and it doesn't seem as bad as my friend made it out to be, but maybe I'm missing something.

It's not that hard to dodge all of the ideoligion stuff if you don't want to deal with it. Just set all of them to have the same values and have them love different opinions and they'll never fight. Personally, I like it and I think it's an interesting addition.

Giddy up got updated over the weekend, apparently there might be a few bugs but all of the modules work on 1.3 now. Also new general update today: >Add a new ideoligion setup interface which allows playing like classic RimWorld, using presets, or fully customizing. >Add more constraints to Empire faction ideo generation. They are no longer proselytizers. This makes it less annoying to host them. (This will only apply to new games.) The two best improvements in it. Proselytizers are a pain in the ass to have as guests.

Cory in the House Thread Anonymous 06/29/2021 (Tue) 22:17:22 Id: 3f285a No. 350799 [Reply] [Last]
https://archive.is/2kRcT The eponymous protagonist from the classic DS game "Cory in the House" has been accused of sending pornographic material to a minor. This doesn't worry me in the slightest, considering the protagonist also gets sent to prison in the game and escapes later on in traditional JRPG fashion. Despite the accusations, this is one extraordinary game and one that has stood the tests of time. Share your fondest memories of the game.

After like 10 years of dropping this shitty game I finally finished Skyrim and all it's DLCs. I don't think I've ever been more dissapointed in my life, what a piece of fucking garbage, even the Ebony Warrior was half assed. It really is nothing but a Draug and Falmer killing sim, everything is level scaled so even if you min-max everything stays the same unless you return to a previous location. What a fucking garbage fire of a shitty grind, the only thing it has going for it is nice aesthetics and music, everything else is absolute ass cancer. How's Daggerfall Unity getting along? Always wanted to get into it but DOSbox was always a mess of an emulator and mouselook was really awkward, something that has also kept me from finishing Star Wars Dark Forces.

Anyone figured out what "..." means in free time mode? Had it over Sheena and Malt, but I didn't figure out how to please them to get that sweet instant hero mode. >>379397 <Oh okay whatever so it probably doesn't do any damage and does guaranteed status effects Didn't the drill a chapter before teach you such skills still do damage, or just the thing some dog tanks do that delays your action? Why would there be a boss skill that takes so long for him to use, to just force you to ensure Hanna is in reserves, then switch her back in and use soothing song? It'd be basically free damage on the boss for no gain for him. Also I recommend Boron's damage reduction skill (entrenchment I think) that lasts the whole combat when fighting a boss, it all adds up and the SP cost is very generous compared to what spending healing items or healing spells does in longer fights, such as this.
>>379701 >... This means they have to take a shit on a portapotty that appears on the roof >didnt the drill chapter teach you anything No because it said it could incapacitate people so when it got to 1 turn left I had a big brain moment and pulled everyone off the tank nobody would get KOd and cost me 5 valuable AP. Turns out I almost fucking died and couldn't do shit for 3 turns. >why do you think it wouldn't do damage Maybe because its AN ATTACK THAT CAUSES A PERMANENT INCURABLE STATUS ATTACK THAT YOU HAVE TO SPEND PROGRESSION ON TO CURE. Fear aint shit because of Hannas soothe or whatever but without an SP or consumable to undo it, you can't blame me for being overly cautious

>>379911 >>379915 This is clearly reverse psychology. Tribes of Midgard came out a week ago and I haven't even heard of it before now. I just went to youtube and searched the game.

Business Enquires: GorillaGameGuru@hotmail.com AKA a Gearbox shill.

>>379905 I'm the same way because every faction is always written in a half-assed pants-on-head way and even if you agree with their message the people or reasoning behind it are a bunch of neanderthal retards. Unless there's a really good explanation or assertion for the faction, like a few from New Vegas, it just feels like I'm shrugging and going along with it because the game won't advance any other way.

>>379624 Well, he hasn't exactly done anything of note either.
>>379627 Exactly, I mean that he has coasted through his career without making any waves nor offending anyone. He is relatively sheltered from issues like this and his strong stance comes off as highly disingenuous. If the most significant "smoking gun" he can cite is something that Blizzard didn't even do, since Diablo was done by a separate studio, it's a pretty weak argument for "time to unionize." Unionization would benefit people like him, who cannot distinguish themselves.
>>379627 >>379636 He's made the same game for like over a decade for Microshaft. A fucking Zombie game for the 360, Xbone and in the future the Xbox SEX. Not just a clout chasing faggot, but an utter leftard dipshit who puts BLM shit in his bare minimum zombie game and brags about it hard.
