MMO Thread Anonymous 09/22/2022 (Thu) 22:24:22 Id: e10240 No. 696923 [Reply] [Last]
New thread since the last one was made 8 months ago and has since been anchored and hasn't been bumped. Some of you might've heard about this but a once popular (still is kinda) MMO called Wizard101 was hacked by an angry ex-employee and filled messages in the game with profanity and such. https://archive.ph/Sw5If Even though the messages are pretty funny. The employee pretty much succeeded in the opposite if he thought people would wonder why he hated the company so much and thought they really fucked him over somehow so they quit the game, but instead it got the game more attention and they're offering free membership to all players from the 20th till the end of the month. Anyways that's the biggest MMO news recently. What MMO have you been playing? What MMO are you looking forward to playing? What old MMO do you want to go back to playing?

Also here's a few more pictures I took during my time with FF14, god knows the photo tools were one of the few redeemable things about it.

Bad Game Design and Game Design General Anonymous 09/21/2022 (Wed) 19:51:32 Id: bb11be No. 696208 [Reply] [Last]
To start off, Cyberpunk 2077. >Has stealth but the enemies are bullet sponges (because of the loot system) and none of the enemy groups in the game are designed around stealth >Had a perk that allowed you to throw knives, which are semi rare, and you lost them forever, until they patched it so it's just a cooldown. Knives were the only other option for stealth besides silenced revolvers and rifles >has character creation but hardly ever displays your stuff because you're always in first person. >Random missions on the street can have enemies who randomly kill you in one shot with a peashooter because the encounters are leveled without considering where the player at a certain level has access, which is EVERYWHERE after the first act is over. >Despite having enemies way over your level, you don't get loot that matches their power if you defeat them, as the loot you get is leveled to YOU and anything above your level if you DO find it in the world is unable to be used (There are fixed drops), arbitrarily. >Iconic (unique and powerful gear) weapons are also leveled to you, so if you don't spec into crafting they're all useless unless you find them at level 50, and they'll quickly get outpaced by shit on the street. >Melee is an option, but none of the perks you get do anything but increase your damage. Building into it with cyberware doesn't add much. >The harder difficulties are not the way to actually play the game, because it ups the enemy health, damage and armor, so if you fight any group early on, you'll get one shotted often. >You can't get chased by police in a car because they didn't program that shit in >The design in general is an example of the devs wanting you to have options, but the options conflict against eachother in design (stealth doesn't work because enemies are sponges who don't die from sneak attacks or have good AI, loot system doesn't work because it doesn't commit or allow the player to get ahead, the crime system does not work because it was underdeveloped and the AI is shit) Sounds to me like it was a case of developer conflict. They didn't know what the fuck to focus on. They wanted it to be Borderlands, but also have stealth. They wanted you to be powerful, but the enemy balance lists compensate by being bullshit and random, they want you to be blocked off from stuff for "reputation reasons" so you have incentive to move up, which exacerbates the random difficulty, they wanted to create a living, breathing world, but they don't even work on the fucking AI? Many indie games that do less, do better then this. And that's not a compliment to indies. And on top of that they pull the same AAA tricks in the story (walkie talkie scenes, slow setpiece scenes like hacking and braindances, etc). I think they committed the cardinal sin of focusing on cutscenes and environment FIRST, rather then the game system and game loops themselves, because the cut content vibe of the story missions reek of that. The flathead being a story piece rather then a gadget, the whole scale back on the hacking system, removal of climbing with mantis blades, removal of fluff pieces like the stalls, the extremely overdone yet empty world, horrible optimization, it reeks of that shit. They're updating it but they aren't fixing it. The whole game is a disasterpiece from start to finish, literally all the choices in development they made were ill-thought out.

Might just drop them and go play city-builder by Impressions or hell even Rimworld.
Just reached the end of chapter 19 of Digimon Cybersluts, Complete Edition. Suddenly the game drops a couple dozen quests at once, and 8 of them are superboss quests that unlike the rest of the game I can't just breeze through with three low ABI mega rank digimon. I'm fairly sure these will be available still in the CH20 post-game, but what about when I use NG+ to go to Hacker's Memory? Do I have to create all the top tier digimon before moving on to the next story?

The old COD thread is dying, and the new game is almost out With Vanguard being such a shitshow, MW2/II/5/Electric Boogaloo REALLY needs to be a hit for Activision... And then you see this. While the game doesn't look too bad from what I watched(I didn't participate in the beta), other people HATE IT, but that mostly just include people who cried about the previous MW game. What are your thoughts about the sad state of gaming, COD in particular? Zombies discussion also welcome. What are some other games that also pull this phone number bullshit? I am genuinely curious, definitely never heard of a western triple A title with single player ever doing this before

>>697470 Why are there so many 12 year old cum guzzling faggots like yourself who actually enjoyed spamming knife with the same gay perk loadout or quickscoping over and over?

(34.55 KB 407x405 1570853830724.jpg)

>>697365 Eh. I have a bit of a soft spot for MW and WaW so I decided to re-examine them a little while back. I've gone back and played them to check how thick the nostalgia goggles were and although they're quite arcade-y I would say that properly assessed in the hindsight and intervening decades of CY+7 they're somewhere slightly above "decent", maybe in the neighborhood of ~7.5 for MW and ~7 for WaW. In particular, the campaign in MW is still a pretty decent spectacle even if it reads like a sub-par Tom Clancy novel and it could very reasonably be considered to be the nearest thing to to a definite point when a very aggressive cancer started to really metastasize in the industry and shit up everything it has touched since. I fully understand the reflexive hate and much of it is richly deserved but it shouldn't dissolve into contrarianism. With that said pretty much everything since WaW has been, in my very limited experience, dogshit that has done nothing except rehash MW year after year while chasing whatever [current trend] in shooters is. I hope against hope that the franchise will eventually be taken out behind the woodshed but considering that Ghosts, Black Ops 3 through Cold War, AW, IW, WWII and Vanguard didn't manage to do so I am not optimistic. Also, a video request: I once saw a video of someone making some very good points about how the multiplayer and especially map design in MW2 was shit and I've been looking for it ever since with no success. It was basically a voiceover with gameplay footage in the background, IIRC it was 11 minutes or so long and I saw it on 8ch ca. 2016 (though it seemed older) in potato quality, no better than 360p.

Therianthropy Anonymous 09/11/2022 (Sun) 14:25:35 Id: bc10ef No. 688041 [Reply] [Last]
Something that I find to be very cool but horribly underused is therianthropy, the process of turning into a Animal/human hybrid. I can think of a precious few games that actually has it in some form and even fewer where its actually useful. Off the top of my head the games that do include therianthropy is: >Daggerfall >morrowind >Skyrim >Vampire: the masquerade >Bloody roar (entire series) I wish I knew more but I dont. There is also the fact that turning into a half human/animal monster isn't always ideal, in skyrim for example turning into a werewolf is not really that useful. Even when it is good you cant pick up items so if you're a packrat like me you kinda just have to wait for the effect to wear off so you can go through the entire dungeon and pick stuff up from the corpses. In vampire the masquerade you can turn into something like a werebat but its not really worth it at all.

No need for a formal general / cyclical just yet, unless enough squiggers flood back here in time for launch day. "Splatoon 3: Splatfest World Premiere" can be downloaded and played ahead of the main Splatfest event, which is a 12-hour window on the 27th. In the meantime, you can explore the tutorial and hub areas, customize your character, and draw some Miiverse-style shitposts for other players to see.

Guess it's back to the grind.
Just got the game this weekend and was giving it a go... I've had a twelve loss streak at longest and it feels like 80% of my matches end in losses and over half end in massive losses (30-70 or lower). And only one of those lost matches do i feel like my mistakes cost the team (we left some home turf uncovered and I could've easily covered it myself while rolling out at the start). Do I just need to gitgud? Or was picking team grub more of a mistake than I thought going with the forehead goblin would be? Or are umbrellas just a meme-tier weapon? At least the singleplayer is neat and Salmon Run is pretty fun. But all these multiplayer losses are a tad disheartening, y'know?

Japanese games causing butthurt Anonymous 03/24/2022 (Thu) 02:52:29 Id: 661fa5 No. 561064 [Reply] [Last]
I've noticed in the past six years there has been a massive amount of butthurt towards Japanese games and Devs especially in the cases of >Nier Automata >Persona 5/Royal >Elden Ring Where the following sold millions of copies despite being weird or niche games that normally be only talked about by autist here or other sites. With the case of Elden Ring major 12 mill success you had Western Devs frothing at the mouth in sheer anger over it along with hating on the Japanese in general, it's been an interesting time seeing this all unfold in real time. Regardless if you dislike Japanese games or even the three heavy hitters listed you do have to admit this whole situation is a well deserved kick in the bollocks for the years of utter contempt the western industry has had for their base.
