Sakurai's Youtube channel

So, now that he's had a chance to release a few videos what are your thoughts on it? I'm actually surprised how blunt this guy is, even when speaking through a translator, it's very refreshing. Also, his advice is legitimately very helpful at least, for gamedev people like me

Splatoon The Third - 'Splatfest' Demo

THE REAL SQUID GAMES HAVE RETURNED This thread is about the 'Splatfest' multiplayer demo, the Treehouse mini-livestream on the 25th, and any discussions about the game before its full release. 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.

MMO Thread

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?

RIP Volition Games

And RIP Saints Row franchise - atleast you tried to be different. Lets laugh at yet another game falling down the fires of woke trash and leftist burden. This time no shills can salvage this as it didn't even have a hypetrain behind like 2077. Also downfall of AAA industry general.

Call of Duty Thread: Please Insert Your Phone Number To Post Edition

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

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?

Bad Game Design and Game Design General

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. The graphics are nice. That's about it. Also fuck this game. So any other standouts in game history, now or recent?

Therianthropy

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.

Japanese games causing butthurt

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.

NIHON FALCOM THREAD: Silver Edition

It's almost been a year since the last thread and it's bump-locked on the second to last page, so let's start a new one. >Latest News -Kuro no Kiseki released on PC today and an English fan translation patch is already available, mogging NISA before they could even announce the localization. The patch translates the main story, sidequests, menus and many NPCs. There are still things untranslated at the moment, such as monster names and other NPCs. But a large portion of the game is fully playable in English. Keep checking the mega posted below as it is updated with new versions regularly. -Kuro no Kiseki II: Crimson Sin announced for a September 29th, 2022 release -Ys X teased, likely 2023 release. All that is known is that it takes place in an early period in the timeline when Adol is young. Seemingly the party system has been replaced with a weapon change system and Kondo has stated there's an increased emphasis on 1v1 combat, but little else is known at the time. -Hajimari no Kiseki/Trails into Reverie received an English fan patch translating basically the whole game into English. Link to the patch is below. -NISA continues it's slow, lumbering path through localizing the games, with Trails From Zero releasing this fall on PC, PS4, Switch, Trails to Azure in Spring of next year, Trails into Reverie in the Summer and Nayuta Endless Trails in Fall. Most of these have had fan translations for years at this point. Considering the strides the fan community has made in recent years NISA is almost becoming irrelevant to the conversation unless you really care about dubs for some reason. >Fan-translations -Kuro no Kiseki English Translation Injection: https: //mega .nz/folder/AYthzT6C#CzegMJ8nUEDi3HhsqYd2Aw -Hajimari no Kiseki English Translation Injection: https: //mega .nz/folder/FVQglRyZ#Ko2ORdPVz6MEXx_hx3aKFQ -The Geofront translations of Zero and Ao (From Zero and to Azure) have been taken down from their official site due to NISA acquiring the translation themselves.

Remember that thread from awhile ago where we generated screenshots from an AI then tried to guess the games?

Well there's a similar software except it blows the fucking socks off the previous one we were using. https://www.craiyon.com/ You may have heard already heard of this AI under its "Dall-E Mini" name, it's gone ultra viral in the past few weeks. It's currently running under the name Craiyon and it's so stable it can generate a set of 9 images generally within 60 seconds. It will sometimes spit out a "Too much traffic" error at you, if so just try again in a few seconds and it should work. The previous game we were playing is pretty much impossible with this one because of how advanced it is. *More on this in my follow-up post It still might be fun to post vidya related results from it. >how do I use it? You ask it to generate a scene, the more specific the better. Don't be afraid to really stress it, something like "A screenshot of Doom where all enemies are Bill Gates" is perfectly within its capabilities. The main thing its bad at is generating faces, but they're working on fixing that. You can also put something blank and simple like "Doomguy" and it will give you Doomguy. Pro-tip: you can open it up in several tabs and run several generations at once.

Anon's autism corner: FNAF

Most of you don't give a shit about those games and for obvious reasons. Those are not good games, they are kind of awful on every level. But they have been a source of fascination due to what they molded into and how popular they've become. Those games became such an insane rabbit hole it feels like a small discovery that rivals a lovecraftian fucking secret. FNAF started as a simple ghost story with boring gameplay where you sat around and fumbled around on cameras until you either win or die. The horror was cheap and reliant on jumpscares, but the gameplay itself although also shit, was at the very least somewhat original for its time. The story was simple: Someone murdered a bunch of kids and then those kids posessed animatronics seeking revenge. It wasn't some great mystery, and as you piece together the plot in the first installments, the reveal is simply "It's a ghost story". It wasn't fun, it wasn't very scary or interesting. But yet it gained insane popularity, why was that? Partially due to furries and their autism, but also partially due to a simpler reason: There weren't that many horror games coming out at the time and FNAF did something, even if it wasn't really good. So imagine yourself to be Scott: You release Five Nights at Freddy's and suddenly you gain an enormous fanbase, and your livelihood now depends on a bunch of cartoon fucking animals that murder people. What do you do now? Well obviously, you would make a sequel, and so you do. This might work for the first couple of games of course, but at the very core FNAF is just a simple ghost story. FNAF 1- You learn the premise of the game FNAF 2- You learn a bit more about the killer FNAF 3- You actually meet the killer This is where it should have ended generally because there wasn't much more to explore. FNAF 4 tried to explore some of the prior happenings, as well as maybe pull some twists although it is in itself, a giant fucking mess. The thing is, you want to make more games, you are disappointed with the conclusions your fans and ecelebs came to, and you don't like the twist you have written yourself. So... you make more games, but the plot is essentially over. So what do you do? Well if that's the case, you have to just make shit up at this point. So you reveal the identity of the character, and not only is he owner of the company in which the murders took place, he is now apparently a mad scientist necromancer who gathers ghost cum from his victim for the sake of attaining immortality, or ressurecting his dead son or something. You play as the son of that guy who then becomes a fucking undead himself after his sister reverse vores him as a part of a hivemind of souls. You create a fucking game in which the partner of the antagonist decides to lure everyone into a pizzeria and kill everyone to end it all, before the killer becomes a fucking VR rabbit that starts to brainwash people with mind control. Security Breach aside, which had its own amount of weird shit, there were the book series written in an alternative universe which has: >A time travelling ballpit >VR game that causes everyone in the world to get cancer >A girl being slowly taken apart by an animatronic until she becomes literal pile of scrap >Humanlike android robots which are able to grow like normal humans >The main antagonist IMPREGNATING A FUCKING MAN AND THEN THAT MAN GIVING BIRTH TO AN ANIMATRONIC FETUS BY HAVING A SELF-DONE C SECTION BEFORE BLEEDING TO DEATH Did anyone of you know of this shit, and what a fucking bizarre mess this whole thing became? Did any of you knew about Scott's autism?

PC Hardware Thread + News: Battlestation Edition

Share your build specs to rate and rig pictures if you'd like. Then others can rate. It's news time, no nvidia stuff this time around since there's no solid info. AMD Ryzen 7950X, 7900X, 7700X, & 7600X Specs, Price, Release Date https://yewtu.be/hVnJbiYOCq4 AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop chips based on Zen 4 architecture coming September 27th for $299 and up >AMD says when compared with a previous-gen Ryzen 9 5950X processor, the new Ryzen 9 7950X chip delivers <Up to 29% better single-core performance <Up to 45% “more compute for content creators in POV Ray <Up to 15% “faster gaming performance in select titles” https://archive.ph/spgRW >During its event, AMD made some bold performance claims versus Intel’s 12th Gen Core processors based on Alder Lake. First and foremost, AMD claims the entire Ryzen 7000 series line-up, including the lower-power, more mainstream Ryzen 7 7700X and Ryzen 5 7600X, will offer better single-thread performance than Intel’s top-end Core i9-12900K. >To that end, a Ryzen 5 7600X was shown running F1 2022 side-by-side with a 12900K, and the Ryzen put up an average framerate approximately 11% higher, though both chips were capable of hitting north of 350 FPS in the test. >On average, AMD is claiming about 5% better gaming performance with the Ryzen 7000 series versus Intel with the 7600X, with faster parts obviously increasing that lead. https://archive.ph/fhSAU AMD Radeon RX 7000 series: Everything we know about the RDNA 3 GPU >Recent rumors suggested that RX 7000 graphics cards could be up to 130% faster than the previous generation overall while staying relatively power-efficient. While AMD is still quiet about the details, it has confirmed that the new GPU series will offer more than a 50% improvement in performance per watt over the previous generation. We also have confirmation that AMD will be adopting the 5nm manufacturing process, which should help drive some of this performance boost. >AMD has confirmed it will make use of a new chiplet design borrowed from the architecture used on its Ryzen processors for RDNA 3. This change in design could allow the company to double the number of compute units on each die. If all else is the same, we can expect AMD’s GPUs to ship with at least 12GB of VRAM. The company had previously claimed that 12GB of RAM on GPUs is the minimum requirement to be future-proof when playing AAA titles. Current AMD GPUs ship with GDDR6 memory, and we can expect the same with Radeon RX 7000 since Nvidia has an exclusive on the faster GDDR6X standard. https://archive.ph/ZSCTT Previous Bread: https://archive.ph/stG4B

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.

Shin Megami Tensei, its Future and Roster Increase

You know what I want back in SMT? Not just more creatures, but something beyond that like religious figures, objects of culture but also more of the occult and cultish, things created out of the publics consciousness, urban legends and historical figures. Mothman and cleopatra come to mind. Jesus himself definetly should be in this game, but so should ghandi, psychonauts like terence mckenna or beings manifested out of drug enduced states like Kauyumarie, criminals akin to serial killers like the Zodiac Killer or traffickers like Jeffrey Epstein, bizzare beings that would fit the diverse world of SMT. I know it sounds pretentious, but I really believe SMT hasn't evolved much since apocalypse, and the demons were interesting and a lot were really good but they didn't hit quite as high as the ones made in the late 80's where you would have its identity evolving steadily. Why stop? Fuck imagine SONICHU, Scientologists, and Q (Yes. Seriously.) in SMT, you can make this franchise as weird, fringe, infamous and as freshly timeless as possible, you'd think Atlus would put 2 and 2 together and realize they can get a fuckton of people in the mainstream to pay attention to their games, especially if they went all out on this and re-invigorated their oldest franchise, but then again, if they do, don't be surprised if the line is crossed and fucking slenderman and jack the killer become a demon in these games, the reaction to that would be severe to say the least. What kind of beings would you like to be added into the SMT franchise, and how would these beings tell the story of the next game? I hope to hear what you anons have to say, because it's been a topic I've been wanting to discuss, I just didn't know how to word it.

Because I don't want to keep teasing the anons in the big Fire Emblem thread about their game not being very complex. So let's talk about one of the best genres that goes hand in hand with autism. Doesn't matter if it's turnbased or real time. It can be as easy to get into as Fire Emblem and Shining Force or extreme autism territory like Advanced Tactics Gold. Let's get the ball rolling. What do you anons think about XCom 2013 and XCom2? I enjoy them, despite their meme hit chances. Some people call the ability system a meme, but that's why I like it and games like Disgaea. 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.

It doesn't look any different to the last game. The hacker who got it claims he also got the source code to both it and GTAV.

According to the article, Rockstar withheld a game mode called Cops n Crooks, where a team of gamers would organize into teams of good guys and bad guys, but was canned due to the BLM summer of fire. Not only that but starting with GTAVI, Rockstar will be cautious not to “punch down” by making jokes about minorities and trannys. The reason for this is because Take Two wanted to crack down on the "boys club" behavior that the old employees of rockstar were engaging in, to the point where "Rockstar has attempted to reinvent itself as a more progressive and compassionate workplace, according to interviews with more than 20 people who work there or left recently, all of whom requested anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly." It basically seems a bunch of Take Two hries took over Rockstar and transformed it into the company that gave us San Andreas to the one that pooped out GTA:DE. You should NOT expect much from this game, and anyone who expects different is a damn fool. That said I like the changes to combat crunch time, however as most developers will tell you, it's a necessity to reach certain deadlines. That said all I can do is laugh at the normalfags that'll buy this garbage. https://archive.ph/t9zH3

On The Morality of Savescumming

What's your opinion on save scumming? How often do you do it and when do you do it? Is it bad game design if a player ever feels pressured to save scum? Is save scumming an issue that needs to be addressed in the first place or is it just something to be expected now? I personally save scum when I'm trying to get secret rewards and to avoid getting locked into certain "bad ends." I don't really mind losing player characters unless the loss is so great that it might as well be a game over.

EDF! EDF! EDF! EDF!

Why are there so few games like EDF, where you have single objective of kill everything with big guns and shit load of enemies to fight. You'd think such simple formula would mean there would be dozens of copycats, but there's none so far. Why is that? Throw in some co-op and you have an easy successful game. Why does Iron Rain tries to be something its not - a serious shooter with focus on story and plot, when no edf entry has done that? Also EDF 6 will be released on 25th.

Wonderous and Comfy Backgrounds + Screenshot Identification and Repair

Someone was asking about some images that I had used in the GTA mosaic thread and I thought it was about time to have another one of these. This is primarily aimed at pixel art but thinks like sky boxes especially low poly ones are welcome as well and so are things like down scaled drawings that are turned into pixel art like what Chrono Cross and Legend of Mana did. Pixel art BGs that are just are and aren't from actual games are welcome too. Don't forget about the other pixel art thread that's about sprites instead of BGs which is on autosage and we'll probably need another one soon >>516987 Post whatever you got.

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 authors and mangaka to write dialogue and support for the game <WITHOUT GIVING THEM CONTEXT OR ANY WAY TO COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER <WHILE SHE WRITES THE SCENARIO FOR ALL ROUTES AND THE CHARACTERS >Gameplay is also shit and exacerbates the few flaws that Awakening had and multiplies them by 1000% >She has the genius idea of doing Fantasy Medieval times vs Fantasy Japan >Of course Fantasy Japan are the super good guys without flaws >Fucking Kamui / Corrin is Kris but a thousand times worse and more obnoxious >Revelations is basically a straight rip-off of Gundam Seed and Kamui is straight up Kira Yamato <Somehow the localization is even worse than the game >Everything is absolute cancer about <It's got the highest sales as a game at the time <Especially due to censorship controversies and due to western tumblrtards spreading lies about the game being LGBTBBQ friendly due to Zero / Niles, who's basically Nami Komoru's yaoi fantasy voiced by Takehito Koyasu >Fire Emblem Warriors starts <The production s troubled, devs don't know what to do, you know how it goes >Team Ninja members make the two main characters of FEW as a blonde Ax Wielder and a blonde Lance Wielder <We could have had Blond Ephraim and Blonde FemHector >The original plan was for Darius to be the secret Sword Wielder Lord that was recruited later >Intelligent Systems suddenly is interested and yoinks the designs for those two lords for their upcoming mobage project at the time <They also yoinked Maaya Uchida for the role of their mobage Lord as well and KoeiTecmo had to beg them to be able to use her alongside her brother in order to voice the twins in FEW >Fire Emblem Heroes >This is basically where the bulk of Intelligent Systems went and all the apparent "A" tier talent <The less said about this fucking cancer, the better >Fire Emblem Echoes >A remake from the "B" tier team about one of the more infamous FE titles <It's actually really fucking good and faithful to the original >B team shows they carry the Fire Emblem spirit within them and deliver a great game with amazing aesthetics and designs (cont.)

Old one is old The guy behind the Van Buren project has gotten the original art style down perfectly, he still doesn't have any ETA yet and a playable demo is still probably years away. The Van Buren project is trying to recreate the original Fallout 3 before it was cancelled after Bethesda bought the IP, as many of you know Van Buren was later reworked into New Vegas but had many core differences from the base game. We still have the game's design documents, which in combination with New Vegas is being used as a reference for recreating the game.

Piece of shit games you instadropped and why

Subject >Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 I thought it was going to be like that sniping mission in cod 4 but with cool deeper sniping mechanics and figured that if they made a 2, surely the 1st one must've been good enough to sell a bunch and warrant a sequel but no. It is like that one mission in cod except with none of the charm and cool action sequences, and the mechanics are no more complex than battlefield 3. Played the first mission, followed the AI like a puppy for a while, went through what might as well have been an on-rails shooting gallery with no challenge, died to AI bullshit a bunch of times, got bored, uninstalled about 30 minutes in. >Dead Island Saw a friend of mine playing it on his 360 several years ago and it seemed cool enough, over the years I kept the name pop here and there and said hell, let's give it a spin boy, was it total uninspired ass tripe. It starts of with a first person cinematic which they couldn't even be assed to make unique for each of the characters you have to choose from. Speaking of which, one the most boring cookie cutter "diverse" possible cast of assholes, consisting of >roided up spic loser >chink woman >giga nigga >a fourth one which I can't even remember and after you pick one of these you embark on a quest of boredom with boring npcs that give you boring fetch quests through boring dialogue I don't want to listen to, but sure, that's just the dressing, how's the meat of the game? IT'S BORING. It's melee focused but the mechanics suck, hit detection is shit, every fight is the same, the inventory system is shit, the skill trees and upgrade system is shit. I played it for 1 hour at most, did like 2 quests, hated every second of it, uninstalled. >Dragon Age Origins A friend of mine lent me a bunch of games and among them this piece of work, "it's good" he said, but it was a trick. I made my character look like the oldest man in existence and it turned out he had a father who ended up looking younger than my newly made avatar. Nothing short of incredible Oblivion tier UI and the first goddamned quest was to kill some spiders or wolves in a cellar or something which was just about as exciting as it sounds. Great fucking combat for a 2009 game, because who doesn't love standing still clicking on other characters and watch them fake real time fight just like in my korean mmorpgrindfests. I read it was inspired heavily by the LOTR books but fuck off, even the fellowship of the ring licensed game on PS2 was better.

Let's make a chart together of your good western games the japanese audience should play! >why? There's an increasing effort to get the Japanese to play Western developed games. And, rather than let companies decide which games should introduce those players to media, we can develop a chart consisting of the "better" games that the West has released over the past 20-30 years, with five of the "best" or "most recommended" titles released every year. >ok I'm in, what are the rules? - The first version of release counts as the game's original release year, unless you're referring to a specific version of the game. - It is a good idea to prioritize games which either already have a Japanese translation or received a Japanese fan translation. - Each year must have 5 games total. - For variety's sake, try to keep it to one title per platform every year. - Only add games that you have personally played to this list. - The years will span from 1992-2021 Discuss with other anons what games you think should/should not be contenders as the games of the year!

False predictions by the industry

Over my many years of gay-ming I've noticed many devs and studio heads have proclaimed very publicly the future of gaming with great confidence. Usually these predictions have been hilariously wrong in hindsight. I wanted to catalog some of these, anybody else wanting to give more examples or more insight is free to. >Motion controls are the future of gaming! This was one of the hardest memes the industry pushed for years, the Wii was such a surprise hit it gave them temporary psychosis. Everybody was trying their hand at it, Sony had the Move, Razor had the Hydra, less than 10 years ago Microsoft tried to make the Xbone Kinect-controlled only despite the thing not fucking working. Of course motion controls never went anywhere, they were a gimmick that took off and people eventually got tired of said gimmick. Few games used them in a meaningful way and usually they were a bad replacement for a traditional controller. The kinds of games you could even make with motion controls is also extremely limited. They still linger on here and there in some titles, usually Switch games or VR, but they never hit the mass adoption studios hoped for. >Singleplayer is dying, multiplayer is the future!/Every game will be online This was probably something execs wanted to be true rather than something they actually believed. Even Gabe Newell said this which is kind of shocking considering how plugged in to the industry he used to be. This was also around the time microtransactions and DLC were becoming common, it was harder to sell singleplayer gamers on a useless $5 skin or $2 lootbox key. People wanted to maximize profits, and the way to do that was to make every game multiplayer. This led to a wave of terrible online games and singleplayer games with tanked-on MP elements for a few years, it saturated the market and none of them took market share away from Halo, CoD, TF2, WoW or the other popular games at the time. This meme died quietly but humiliatingly. >The Japanese games industry is finished This was a weird one, for underageb&s anybody too young to remember; around the late 2000s and early 2010s there was a lull in the Japanese side of the industry. The Wii had nothing but garbage outside of Nintendo's own games, Wii U was a massive failure, a lot of Japanese companies weren't doing so well and there was a general perceived lack of quality in some Japanese games at the time. Phil Fish's infamous "Japanese games suck" quote was said around this time. Now, why this made every gaming pundit claim the entire Japanese industry's days were numbered, I have no clue. It's especially silly in hindsight as this was only for a few years and not some decades-long decline. >PC is a failing platform Another case of execs wanting something to be true. There were various reasons this was said - the main one being piracy - but the truth is execs wanted consoles to "win" because they have a lot more control over a walled garden like PlayStation than they do a wild jungle like Steam. Piracy was one of the industry's biggest boogeymen for a long time, you don't hear about it as much anymore but go back 15 years ago and every studio head and suit was whining about how piracy was going to destroy the industry. This wasn't limited to gaming, the movie and music industries also complained about this, the latter even more so than gaming. >VR will change the industry! Despite 10 years of market availability and heavy development, VR still remains little more than a gimmick for rich people and haven for porn addicts. It's just too expensive and has >nogaems. With Ubisoft recently cancelling all their AAA VR games and Facebook upping the price of the Quest by over 30%, I don't think we'll see VR become mainstream anytime soon. Anybody want to add any others? There are more I could think of but this OP is getting long.

Games like Tarkov

Games like tarkov are really hard to find. Maybe because there's no other game like it with a playerbase. Some which claim to be like tarkov are either basic battle royale like dayz or have gimmicks a la hunt showdown. Or simply don't have playstyle, where gameplay is favoured to skills beyond twitch reflex or item location memorization, semi-realistic shooting, where having discord teammates doesn't give you an instant advantage over others, where every kill and hunting time before a kill is also satisfying. Perhaps a sense of dread and curiosity too, where you're actually careful with every encounter and not just blast through everything with enough firepower. I don't know what to call this, I haven't found any other game that has the same atmosphere and playstyle as Tarkov, even if many games released have been said to "this kills Tarkov". Which is really strange because tarkov isn't anything new or unique gameplay wise. Is it because devs cannot not follow the latest industry trends of looter shooter and gacha lootbox skinfest?

Crying to a video game

You've never actually cried to a video game right? Because I have. Post the times a game has made you emotional to the point you shed a tear. It doesn't have to be full on sobbing because at that point it would be pretty embarrassing. There's really only four games that made me emotional through my life of playing vidya. I've played all the Yakuza games and had emotional moments through pretty much all of them but the only times I've actually shed a tear were in Yakuza 4 and once at the ending of Yakuza 5. For Yakuza 4 specifically the scenes with Saejima with his speech at the arena and that prison escape scene with Hamazaki. The ending of FFXII really hit me hard because I really love this game. It's my favorite mainline FF game and I have no problem stating that. It got me emotional knowing I'm not gonna see these characters again, not experience their dialogue new for the first time and the music. Knowing the story and the adventure I felt progressing through the game and how it won't be a new experience for me anymore. That song at the end especially hit me hard. Tales of Berseria had a big emotional impact on me and it's not even my favorite Tales game, Vesperia is. But I love the cast in Berseria as much as I do Vesperia's. That scene with Eizen and Rokurou becoming acquainted with each other talking about Velvet's ambition and sharing drinks with each other was really touching for some reason. Seeing Velvet change throughout the story where she was really moody and always in a bad temper to actually caring about the friends she's made and smiling in her exchanges with them. The best skits to me were Eizen and his philosophical viewpoints on life. Hearing him explain his admiration for his captain, his love for his sister, the way him and Rokurou were like big brothers to Laphicet. Just like FFXII after playing the game knowing these characters won't be new to me anymore hit me a little. I felt the same way about Vesperia but for some reason Berseria just had a bigger impact on me. Maybe because Eizen and Magilou are my favorite Tales characters. Then there's FFXIV which I actually recently took a break from since Endwalker's launch. I've beaten Endwalker's main story and it did get emotional at the end but the time I truly actually shed a couple of tears were at the end of Shadowbringer's story. I can't even explain it really you just have to have played the game to understand. There was also the scene with Elidibus in 5.3 that got me teary eyed.

Insanely Comfy Games Only YOU Played!

Starting out with a banger, Art of Balance is addictive with its interesting and engaging puzzle mechanics, aesthetic and music. It's all a joy to the senses and the clever design keeps you coming back for more, each 'world' having different decorum to suit the mood each level wants to convey, the time of day and its color changing the senses, from purple irridescent hues of twilight, to the glowing pink dawn, and botanical greenery that adds a unique flair to every level, there's something in here for everyone looking to unwind. This game is a masterpiece all on its own, if you like abstracted contemporary design and high graphical quality, you can't miss this.

Games with In-Game Fan-Made Content & Community

I don't know if there's a term for games like this, but yeah, I want to compile a list of games that feature a feature that allows the fans, in-game, to make fan-made content that they can share with one another. The Little Big Planet games are an obvious example of this, as is its team's next creation: Dreams. Warcraft 3's Custom Maps comes to mind. Spore Dragon's Dogma? You can create and share pawns, but, the creative process involved with the pawns is just a character-creator. It's a bit basic, and I hope nobody makes similarly basic suggestions, especially considering my other mentions. I was considering giving the TES games an honourable mention since, while that would be modding and not in-game fan-made content, Howard does indeed acknowledge and welcome his game's modding community. Mods are mods, but if the game's creator is approving of the mods, it's like they're not mods, but in-game fan-made content. Nonetheless, I won't even give it an honourable mention. I've deemed mods to be a slippery slope. It opens the door to Minecraft being a possible suggestion. So, hopefully the rules are clear. Any suggestions?

I checked up on PSU and it seems there's some dramafaggotry going on with the development team.

Underrail Thread: Gypsy Edition

Been a while since we've had a thread about serbian Fallout. Recently some anon on half/v/ did a lot of crunching testing gypsy charm effects. Turns out most of them actually do something, although the effects vary in power depending on a large number of obscure factors (like how much you treat gypsy magics as real during the dialogue with Coral) and depending on current time IRL they might not work at all. >Burrower Tarsus Charm: Increases critical chance of throwing knives when having high enough armor penalty >Coil Spider Tarsus Charm: Increases electrical damage taken, possibly increases maximum EK bolt jump distance >Death Stalker Claw Charm: Makes you slightly harder to detect >Hopper Foot Charm: Increases critical chance with weapons and unarmed attacks >Psi Beetle Claw Charm: Increases critical chance with psi abilities but reduces resolve >Siphoner Foot Charm: Increases chance to inflict bleed >Warthog Foot Charm: Increases Fortitude when under effect of food items, but reduces it when the duration of the buff is below 25% I hear that all charm bonuses are factored in somewhere in the middle of calculations for any given tick, so there's no way to see their effects in any of the stats windows. tl;dr <Gypsy charms have real effects, but they are extremely inconsistent and fairly weak still.

Unsolved Gaming Mysteries

I posted this in the QTDglksgk thread but I figured it was an interesting enough topic on its own to warrant its own thread. Like the title says post any unsolved mysteries in gaming. Here's one that's been bugging me and hopefully you can help solve a mystery. Shenmue 3's kickstarter campaign promised capsule toys of backers, and it's understood that they mostly delivered on this part. I distinctly remember one Anon from 8chan claiming that he was going to pledge for a capsule toy of Vivian James. Now that Shenmue 3 has come out I have not seen hide nor hair of this Vivian James toy in the game. It's clear that he backed it as Vivian's name is on the Shenmue 3 backer page. Has anyone found it? Is it in the game, or has it all been a ruse?

Optimizations & Tweaks General

I'm an obsessive autist for anything that's remotely performance boosting, whether it's how much paste you can apply to your processor to how to align your CPU cooler for best thermal contact, all the way to overclocking consoles, patching vidya games and enabling mods and hacks that let you play your previously 30fps game to a locked 60, to outright finding the best version of that fancy software that recently went to shit. I want to hear it all, this is what I have to share; in yuzu emulator, set the affinity to 4 cores and 5 threads for consistent and better paced scheduling, see pics 2 (Hyperthread/SMT ON) and 3 (HT/SMT OFF). By limiting the cores to what a switch uses, the emulator won't constantly switch between cores and threads, negating some performance issues felt when affinity isn't set, works better now. Yuzu also currently has a project called Andio, this WIP implementation currently causes problem behavior, such as loading screen stutter and performance hitches, so stay on version 2787 until it's fully implemented.

WURM Serb: 6 months edition

I think its time for more WURM >what is this Wurm is basically proto-minecraft but with 200% more autism. Instead of just slapping blocks down you gather resources, build walls/tools/weapons and improve quality based on skills. Be a magic priest, the local smith, make cheese, pretty much anything you could want. Everything is a skill grind, and the gameplay is very slow/low intensity. >ok how do I play Right now you don't, I'm still setting up/configuring server mods. This thread is going to be to discuss settings/configurations. You can pick it up on steam (or yarhar) and try hosting a local server or terrorize a normalfag serb for now. Launch will be August 2nd for now just to be safe, but if rolf code doesn't fuck me in the ass anymore than it already has, we could start sooner. CURRENT SERVER SETTINGS <These are all up for debate, looking for feedback this week on settings before committing to custom map content >2x action, 3x skill Can go 3x/3x, but was thinking some slowdown would add longevity. >priest restrictions disabled, cross deity linking enabled, NO DAILY/HOURLY PRAYER LIMIT This should let people that want to focus on magic do so. I'll be toning the gains down on faith so it feels more like a real skill to grind instead of a daily login bonus/requirement. I'll be adding runes of recall to smooth out channeling grinds between deities. >Everyone in freedom kingdom, all pvp enabled This lets everyone do whatever they want with priesting, and if you village has drama you can just make a new deed instead of having to jump kingdoms. This means PMK(player made kingdoms) might not be in. Open to feedback on this. >Wyvrnmods/duskcombat/treasuremaps All are in. I'll run through more specific settings/post .properties somewhere later. Bounties currently disabled (fuck you rolf) but it fits with the theme I'd like to run. >other mods/settings implemented Most actions can be done from carts. PVP is currently full loot but affinities are not lost on death. >future mods to test/implement Refuelers to keep forges lit permanently, Alchemy to allow potions (only work out of combat, but can get temporary weapon oils/healing potions/buffs), a few more QoL mods, and a dungeon system with currency/rewards(only if everything else works). Badmin Rules/Settings >One character per player Please just use one account. I don't want to have to deal with people using more than one character. If you have an alt, just be logged into one at a time. I'm really not willing to budge on this but I'm open to feedback, I know this is important to some of you >Spell Changes I'm going to be taking dominate and revive from Mag and Lib. Really easy to trivialize content with these spells. Open to giving them different spells in exchange for this, but not sure how it would change balance. Hosting Biggest concern I have. I'm willing to get a decent 3rd party host but if I have to get my own hardware upgraded I'm capable of that, though no idea if my network could handle it. >Yarhar clients Still looking into how to enable this.

Resident Evil

Seeing as the thread we had for the last several months hit bump limit and is pretty much dead, let's have a new one! >What's New Resident Evil, the Netflix series, came out today. It looks like shit, but it apparently has the most faithful creature design of any adaptation. >What's Coming Up Resident Evil Village: Gold Edition, which will come with new Mercs characters, a third person mode for the main scenario, and a new scenario called "Shadow of Rose", focused on the titular Rose Winters. Resident Evil 4 Remake, which will launch in Spring 2023. Both of these titles will be "Receiving PSVR2 Support", no word on any VR support for other platforms, and don't get your hopes up since RE7's VR never left the PS4. Re:Verse... still doesn't exist! >What's Leaked From the Capcom leak that is now a year and a half old, we know the following; Resident Evil: Outrage, was set for Q4 2022, has since been delayed or outright cancelled, with no word on what the fuck it was. Perhaps an internal codename for Re:Verse, but who knows. Biohazard: Apocalypse is set for 2023, and is likely the elusive Resident Evil 9 considering the other leaked titles.

Soul Hackers 2 - Cyberpunk Boogaloo

Atlus has put a countdown on the Soul Hackers site https://soul-hackers.jp/ They've also put a bunch of cryptic videos on YouTube pooling people for their opinions on SMT stuff (Law vs. Chaos) random stuff and the modern internet which occasionally show static images of... something. The only one that's of particular interest (and all that clear) are these two, which looks like a gameplay screenshot (which shows a PS controller button prompt) and a world shot. >PS exclusive or multiplat using PS version for best graphics in previews >will it maintain the 90s future the remake did absolutely nothing to change (they still said it was in the Heisei era!) or adopt a more modern view of the future >will it use the classic SMT combat or something else (since Raidou is half the Devil Summoner sub-series) >will it have a cute FeMC option >how will it be sucked

Mario Kart 9 speculation thread

ITT: post speculation and ideas about Mario Kart 9 Here are mine -Mario Kart 9 will be a launch title for nintendos next console. -It will be released in 2024 or 2025, after all the dlc tracks for 8 deluxe are released. -Since it can't compete with the number of tracks in 8 deluxe it won't even try and will focus on a gimmick. -This gimmick will relate to the gimmick of the next console, maybe vr. -New single player mode with a hub and missions similar to diddy kong racing. -Bikes are gone. so is zero g. Gliders might stay. -Nintendo kart concept will not happen because it doesn't appeal to the super casual audience -Small initial roster with extra characters being sold as dlc or released to promote new games -New battle royal mode added, similar to classic balloon battle but with more players

The Wayward Realms

What do you anons think of this? The skinny is old Daggerfall devs are getting together to make an RPG, leaning into the fantasy sim aspect of the original Elder Scrolls games more than the theme park design. There was some drama with a YouTuber who was on the team and claimed they were making no progress but that was awhile ago and they've been doing more regular updates since then. Rough outline of the game >set in a massive group of 100+ islands known simply as the Archipelago >diverse range of environments >dynamic politics and dynasty system >will use a procedural generation system similar to Daggerfall to generate the world, lore will be handwritten >will probably use a lot of prefab assets because the scale is too large for a small studio to do that much art creation >the whole game is planned to be a giant immersive sim with "reactive" gameplay Basically they want to make Mountain Blade Elder Scrolls. An article talking about more of their ideas - https://archive.ph/qH4I8 They're saying the right things but I've seen this exact story play out before, veteran devs get together to one up the modern industry only to lead a project that goes nowhere. I'd love to be proven wrong, it does seem like they're taking this more seriously than they were a few years ago. If you were going to do crazy in-depth shit with AI generation, Julian Le Fay is the guy to do it.

Kikey Cashgrabs // Meme Games

This is about games created not out of passion, but out of a desire to extract profit. Think of it as a callout thread, of what's holding vidya back. Properties that don't deserve to be taken seriously, or with any consideration. Huggy Wuggy A.K.A 'Kikey Wikey' is a "game" that was created solely to ride off of the FNAF wave, but carries no solid elements to give any of their games any real distinction to separate it from glorified shovelware attempting to ape FNAF, relying on streamers to advertise this game to people, through barebones gameplay that sells you the idea of the franchise, and not the actual game with its "chapter" business model, looking to increase its shilling prower through that early access bullshit, I'm betting these people put more in marketing that game development costs. It's a social parasite kind of game, that doesn't have anything in terms of experience, but rather its marketing. It gets pretty fucking sleazy with how they try and artifically milk lorefagging for profit, apparently selling "totally secret" walls of text and a few pictures as NFT's out of all things. It's essentially creatively bankrupt corporate money grubbing through and through. https://yewtu.be/BL5RUzbpM2I

Does anyone still plays dota2/LoL? Or is it just chinese and russians left? Since the hype for moba/assfaggots ended and every company stopped jumping in with their own "totally gonna change the game" game, the general perception of these games has been they're just for sweaty tryhards and wannabe esports fags. Casual players are still there, but they still have 100s of hours on them. Influx of new players has trickled down, overhyped updates are almost gone, devs themselves are just maintaining them. And most importantly fanarts and porn have crawled to a halt, League has fared a bit better with sexy art still being pumped out

Destroy All Humans 2 Confirmed CENSORED!

>Destroy All Humans 2! Reprobed, the remaster of the original that many have been blindly praising for its sex appeal, has completely removed a mission from the original game, likely due to the potential “offense” it could cause amongst the overly sensitive masses of the modern day. >The mission from the PS4 version of the game, “Take It Like a Man”, which involves a man secretly wanting to transition and become a woman, making it rather obvious why the mission had to be censored: >The mission, where the objective is to ruin the lives of humans, has a man secretly wanting to become a woman but is concerned for his wife, and the player intervenes by taking over the man’s body, calling his wife, and telling her that he’s already transitioning to become a woman. >The mission ends with the man successfully transitioning, but learning his wife has left him. https://archive.ph/elcpe https://www.sankakucomplex.com/2022/09/02/destroy-all-humans-2-reprobed-removes-sex-change-mission/ <Apparently the remake of Destroy All Humans! 1 was also censored in some ways Looks like THQ Nordic isn't quite as pure as that AMA would have led one to believe.

RimWorld and Dwarf Fortress

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.

Mega Man Battle Network

Ignorance thread, potentially a thread of discovery. I know nothing about Rokman EXE and I don't even know what a Battle Network is. I used to consider myself a huge Rockman fan, but I only played the mainline games and some of the X titles, and even those I played up until certain point. I didn't give Zero a chance until recently, because it didn't feel right to me, and when I played it, Iloved it. So I'm thinking, should I give Battle Network a chance, even though it's so different and also old? My foolish prejudice kept me from enjoying Zero, so maybe I'm being foolish now with Battle Network? What shoulkd I expect from the games? What mindset should I go in with?

Localization and censorship thread

Gather here all you got on these niggers we need a permanent thread documenting the toll that liberal faggots place on freedom of information additionally providing info on games in question. >Pic 1: Prudish mutt couldn't handle a simple instance of innocent skinship and suggestive undertones towards a little girl, american popular media nowadays openly and shamelessly teaches kids faggotry, transvestism, promiscuity, infidelity, atheism and God knows what the fuck else, but something like that is of course a no-no, same-old, same-old, as far as I know there's no content differentiation between western and jp versions of the game, so just switching the language to Japanese should fix everything. >Second screenshot is Zanki Zero: Last Beginning, some kind of Dungeon Crawler from Spike Chunsoft, absolute pieces of shit cut every instance of loli lewdity from it, it released on PS4, Vita and Steam and so far unabridged versions available only on Japanese console versions of the game, yes, they made it impossible to play this game anywhere overseas, all you can do is import psychical copy over from Japan (goes without saying, finding a pirated copy of jp rom for those would be nigh impossible, so hopefully someone contributes), why the fuck Chunsoft allows their games to be renditioned by those fuckwads is beyond my understanding >What follows next are quotations and ramblings of those very fuckwads, only in modern western world there's such a case of lecherous incompetent opinionated cunts being given jobs and responsibility to the work they prove to be nothing but detrimental. There are many games affected negatively by them that warrant many layers of discussions for now I'll handpick a few from the top of my head: >Fire Emblem Fates' western release as you all know was brutishly butchered (so were many other games from that time i don't remember what exact agency is to be held accountable) , it was not only severely censored with removal of vital features, but translators couldn't have made it more apparent how little fucks they gave about any semblance of "quality control" and as a result we received a very half assed product with asinine script and made up (or sometimes absent) dialogue in many places Three Houses didn't suffer any game content change, but the end localized script is nothing short of infuriating with how many fucking intentional mistranslations those assholes made, it seems as thought every line that didn't fit their personalized political agenda had needed to go, it's fucking astonishing how nintendo doesn't give a shit about all this. Aside from that the game also didn't have the best or the most accurate of localizing quality, you can check up in-deapth on instances of such in this forum: https://varishangout.com/index.php?forums/censorship.41/, script comparison postings of Three Houses and many other butchered games as well as Japanese media in general are very big there. >Persona I can't say much about preceding games, but Persona 5 famously received an extremely shit translation with no professionality to speak of, so much that it warranted an entire website created complaining on it: https://www.personaproblems.com/ Persona 5 Royal suffered many changes in that already shit script, again, to conform to liberal americunt standarts. Similar things can be said about virtually any west-imported Japanese game and game franchises of the last decade and a half , we all remember what treatment Kiseki series had, the nightmares they had wrought out of many Wii-U games, etc etc, , what we undoubtedly can deduce from this is that they are not about to back down, the liberal cancer that is controlling information loves and will continue to do so, what we have, I'd say, is absolutely zero excuse not to learn Japanese every moment of the day, but of course that wouldn't cover everything, there will be cases similar to zanki zero's, there will be cases of censorship being even on Japanese versions of games, what I want is to bring light upon those crimes, every one of them should be well known.

Good Sound Design, Dogshit Game: DK64 Edition

Whenever I used to play DK64, I would fucking hate the bullshit overworld puzzles, minigames, redundant character switching and arbitrary power up system (Super Simian Slam) and obscene amount of collectibles, it's a game that is for all intents and purposes woefully dated, It's a game I hold close to my heart, I decided to play the swap romhack, and I still found it pretty annoying but not as much as before, I use a display tablet so I don't get sound so most of my game felt bland, but then I bought some speakers for it and it felt like I could '''feel'" the experience I had when first playing it. There was so much depth to the sound that I never imagined it would completely change my experience when playing it. There was suddenly a new layer unearthed, and I could once again tolerate this game. It's like getting the sugar back in the cereal, good stuff, dat soundtrack man, dat sound design, dem sound effects, dat ambience. It all came together wonderfully, like a neatly tied ribbon that enhanced my overall experience. I want to know if any of your dongs have expanded from a similar vidya experience, I'd love to hear about it.

DENUVO COMES TO NINTENDO SWITCH TO HELP PREVENT PIRACY

Denuvo launches first Switch emulator protection https://nintendoeverything.com/denuvo-launches-first-switch-emulator-protection/ https://archive.ph/7PFTl >Denuvo by Irdeto, known for its anti-tampering and digital rights management protection on PC, has now announced that it is introducing “a revolutionary technology to protect games launching on Nintendo Switch from piracy.” >Today’s announcement notes that any Switch title can be emulated from day one and played on PC, “bypassing the strong protections offered on the PC version.” But with the Nintendo Switch Emulator Protection, it’s claimed that “anyone wishing to play the game has to buy a legitimate copy.” >Irdeto said of its solution: “As with all other Denuvo solutions, the technology integrates seamlessly into the build toolchain with no impact on the gaming experience. It then allows for the insertion of checks into the code, which blocks gameplay on emulators.” >“We at Denuvo understand that piracy negatively affects the gaming industry and are working with the industry parties to ensure they have the latest protection technologies available for them,” said Reinhard Blaukovitsch, managing director at Denuvo by Irdeto. “Our team is excited to provide a solution that helps the developers and publishers to help fight the issue of Nintendo Switch piracy.” >According to today’s press release, Irdeto’s research done in collaboration with Omdia found that 84 percent of game developers are continuously concerned about tampering and piracy. The same report says 93 percent of those using anti-cheat and anti-tamper solutions are satisfied with the protection and value brought by game protection technologies. >the technology integrates seamlessly into the build toolchain with no impact on the gaming experience THEY'RE STILL FUCKING LYING ABOUT THIS SHIT

The biggest disconnect between soundtrack and gameplay?

The ass-kicking macho man saves the world from an alien invasion all alone. All while being supported by a soundtrack that would fit a game like Thief or Silent Hill more. Literally not a single energetic track, aside from the menu theme. I've never seen a disconnect like this in any other game. It's like the composers didn't talk to the other team members at all.

Dead Island 2 finally to be released Feburary 3rd 2023, almost 10 years after it was announced

https://archive.ph/J1FCl The release date comes from an Amazon listing, which lines up with what Embracer said about releasing an open world zombie game in 2023. >Nine years after its initial reveal, Dead Island 2 will release on February 3, according to a listing for the PS4 version on Amazon. That's naturally subject to change and could just be placeholder—this being Dead Island 2, I wouldn't be surprised—but it does line up with recent hints by Embracer Group's CEO that the open world zombie game will be released in the company's 2023 fiscal year. >The Amazon listing (opens in new tab) reiterates some of the points we've known about the game during its long stint in development hell. It's set in a version of Los Angeles "stained with horror", which means you'll get to bludgeon zombies in "the verdant suburbia of Beverly Hills" and "the quirky promenade of Venice Beach". Combat is "visceral and gory", naturally, and there will be "dozens" of different kinds of zombie to eviscerate, all with an LA theme, of course. >The listing is for the Day One edition, which comes with a bunch of cosmetics, a baseball bat (an in-game one, for violencing undead) and a weapon perk. Here are the screenshots attached to the listing What do you think the holdup was? The game probably went into development after Dead Island in 2011, so that means it was in production for probably 11 years.

Garbage ideas that developers insist on

Share your most hated game design conventions, here are a few ones that piss me off: 1. Skill unlock systems for basic shit. The only excusable use of a skill unlock system is if the game is so complex it's too overwhelming to start playing with everything unlocked from the beginning, and even then there should always be an option to skip all the unlocking and get to the meat of it immediately for people who have already played the game before. I have yet to see even a single skill unlock system in an action game that meets this requirement, actually, the only time I've ever seen a gameplay unlock system that actually helps learn the game was in Kerbal Space Program. I highly doubt that ANY action game is complex enough to justify having a skill unlock system. 2. Walking and talking sequences. The cancer of the unskippable cutscene evolved into the cancer of the quicktime event, and now it has reached its ultimate, most cancerous form in the walky talky sequence. What in the flying fuck purpose do these trash sequences serve? Desert Bus is a game designed to be torture as a joke because it forces you to do nothing and always be paying attention to the nothing you're doing by slowly steering your bus to the side and forcing you to constantly correct the heading. That's exactly what these walky talky sequences do, not only can you not skip them, you can't even tune out because the game is constantly demanding that you move the analog stick to prove you're participating in the torture. This shit makes games pretty much unreplayable and it's every-fucking-where. 3. FPS red goo vision. One day CoD had the brilliant idea to plaster your screen with red shit at the precise moment when you most need to see clearly, and then every retard chasing CoD's success ended up copying this awful idea. A damage indicator should never get in the way of actually seeing what the fuck you're doing. To make things worse, red goo vision doesn't even show directional damage in most games that use it. 4. Wallhack vision. Why bother with sensical world design and patrol routes, balancing stealth mechanics or doing sound design when you can just give the player a fucking wallhack and call it a day? I blame this shit squarely on Arkham Asylum and it's the biggest cop out that has infected more than just stealth games ever since. 5. Maps. Just like wallhack vision is a cop out to get out of designing stealth games, maps are a cop out to get out of designing explorable worlds. I think a lot of anons would agree that minimaps full of quest markers are cancerous, but my more radical take is that something as basic as a world map is already revealing the size of the world. When I start a game about exploration, I want to have no idea of how big the world is, I don't want to see the edges of the game world and I want the game to fool me into feeling like the world could go on forever. Opening a world map instantly destroys this.

Japan/Asia releases with English support

I remember reading somewhere that the Western release of the new Pocky & Rocky game was censored or something, I didn't bother to look further into it and simply downloaded the Japan/Asia version which to my surprise has a full English localization. Back when I used to own a PS3, I was all over the small yet interesting handful of Asia released games that featured English such as Aquanaut's Holiday (Reboot) which had Eng subtitles only on its Asian release, this is quite a rare game by Artdink (redundant) that never saw a Western release. So yeah, any recommendations? It can be any console.

And, rather than let companies decide which games should introduce those players to media, we can develop a chart consisting of the "better" games that the West has released over the past 20-30 years, with five of the "best" or "most recommended" titles released every year. >ok I'm in, what are the rules? - The first version of release counts as the game's original release year, unless you're referring to a specific version of the game. - It is a good idea to prioritize games which either already have a Japanese translation or received a Japanese fan translation. - Each year must have 5 games total. - For variety's sake, try to keep it to one title per platform every year. - Only add games that you have personally played to this list. - The years will span from 1992-2021 Discuss with other anons what games you think should/should not be contenders as the games of the year!

Games you think would do well, that you probably wouldnt like.

Like the title says, do you have any game ideas that you think would do well, that you also probably wouldn't be interested in playing. I had this idea of an etrian oddessy style dungeon crawler, but its in the backrooms, I guess it could also be old school smt as well. The main thing just being that the backrooms are mostly just empty rooms and hallways that all look the same from floor to floor, so I feel like you'd be able to make a game out of that pretty quickly. Plus that theme is really popular with the kiddos nowadays, I feel like it'd be free money.

In-game content exclusive to certain platforms.

A couple of years ago i found out that the console versions of F.E.A.R. actually has exclusive weapons. The ps3 got an automatic shotgun and the xbox 360 got a machine pistol you can dual wield. I am kinda annoyed at this. having exclusive weapons for the console versions would be one thing but both consoles having their own unique weapons means I would need to buy 2 copies of the game to play with all the weapons. not to mention both versions also have their own missions exclusive to their versions. I kinda wish if there is ever such a thing as a F.E.A.R. remaster that they would add both weapons and missions to the PC version. its such a bizarre situation for the devs to put themselves in though. I am sure there are more situations like this but usually it's games being ported to newer hardware being given more stuff. Do you have any more examples of this shit? should I buy the console versions of F.E.A.R. and play through them both to see which game got the better weapon? why would they do something like this in the first place?

Wanted:Dead delayed to February 14, 2023

Wanted:Dead also known as "Devil's Third the Second" was delayed for a few months, mainly I assume to actually promote the game and show that it's basically "Devil's Third but good". Honestly I'm cautiously optimistic for this game, especially hearing about how Devil's Third had a good multiplayer mode that we'll never experience since NoA is fucking retarded. They also announced a new trailer with more gameplay and dates for the game to be demo'd for the public, hopefully we'll get more insight soon to see if this game is actually good, from the gameplay it looks to be Ninja Gaiden but with guns, which is perfectly fine.

Days Gone, Jak & Daxter, Ghost of Tsushima and Gran Turismo are all getting movies

Some of these were announced awhile ago but got no coverage, but Days Gone is a new one. Considering how the Uncharted and Ratchet & Clank movies were, I'm not expecting any of these to be good either. https://archive.ph/3L64V https://archive.ph/os514 https://archive.ph/L06p2 https://archive.ph/Rk7N2 The Jak & Daxter movie is being directed by the same person was the Uncharted movie, which got an incredible 39% on RT. Sony want Gran Turismo to be directed by Neill Blomkamp of all people, most famous for District 9 and Elysium. He doesn't direct movies much anymore and mainly makes short films like he did as a student. I can imagine a reason they want him, he's brilliant at SFX and CGI as that was his background before his stint as a director. A racing movie probably needs somebody of that background to have even slight chance of being watchable. I couldn't find much else about the others. Sony also has a few TV show adaptations in the works, like Horizon: Zero Dawn, God of War, The Last of Us and Twisted Metal. All four shows on four different streaming platforms oddly enough, Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO and Peacock respectively. Did gaming execs learn anything from the 90s? There may be some animus out there I'm unfamiliar with but I don't think I've seen a single good vidya adaptation that wasn't a book or graphic novel.

Metroid Dread

More concretely, Metroid Dread isn't very good, and I need to vent out my thoughts on it. Mainly because everything I've read about it is praising the game as it being amazing. And sure enough, it has some strong points, the visual aspect being the undisputed best the game has to offer, specially the way Samus moves and is overall portrayed. That, I liked. But even at the strongest point, there is something that was still bad to me, and was the backgrounds, while portraying some impressive imagery of natural caves and artificial constructions, somehow manage to be very samey, blending together and making the corridors sort of indistinct one from the other, making me check the map because I wasn't properly registering the path I was taking. Another strong aspect I'd like to point out was the animations of pretty much everything and everyone, and the successful parries to bosses attacks and the subsequent bonus cinematic you can use to put the hurt on them looked pretty intense. So that was good too. Now, to the not as good. Samus plays very smoothly, and her responsiveness is tight and overall feels good to play as her. However, there are a few things that bothered me. One was the unique movespeed for Samus unless cloaked with the invisibility item. Breaks inmersion for me, tilting the joystick just a little bit and having a full sprint as a response. Granted that's minor and I as I got more powerful, the need to move slowly while entering new areas disappears, so whatever. But I'd like to point out, pressing down to build speed boost felt bad most of the time (although the newly implemented wall jumping while boosting, while very sparsely used for some item containers, was pretty cool to see, not so much to pull off, but it was neat), and having to weirdly use three buttons to swing around with the grappling beam, also felt really awkward. And why wouldn't you give me the option to make Missiles a toggle if I'd like to? Or the option to re-map the buttons entirely too. But whatever again. Not a deal breaker. Now the the outright bad. The lack of memorable themes or tunes is criminal. And I don't mean it like a nostlagiafag that needs the classic music themes slapped with a new coat of paint. New compositions all the way is good for me, but I can't remember a single BGM from this game, it's all approached as a background noise without melody. And while it sort of does it's job on a first impression, makes it feel so liveless, so unappealing, that I feel that's one of the main reasons the atmosphere of the game isn't as good as it could potentially be. On the plus side, most of the SFX are fine. I feel some of them lack some punch. Specially the Screw Attack not making the enemy go BANG on touch. They are killed in one hit, some of them in two, but they just kinda melt away because by that point everthing is X infected, and while the melting away in some black ooze works for beams or missiles, for the Screw Attack felt unimpressive The game cltuches too much on repeated boss fights and backtracking, sometimes to an absurd degree. And doesn't help that travelling between map zones takes a good half a minute of having a loading screen with Samus just standing there. If at least I could push buttons to have Samus check on her cannon or on herself or some kind of eye candy to break the monotony of waiting for 30 seconds for the elevator to arrive at destination, that would be somewhat solved too. Story was retarded. Full stop. It creates a lot of continuity problems from Fusion to Dread, and it seems like a huge wasted oportunity to have for the first time alive Chozo to interact to, only to create some kind of conflict between Chozo subspecies or some kind of civil war between brainy Chozo and muscly Chozo? Aren't they supposed to be the most advanced civilization in the cosmos? Is the main bad guy so determined to bring order to the galaxy that he will kill everyone that doesn't line up, or straightly murder welcoming brethren because he's eeeeevil? Why would the soldiers follow his orders when all we've seen of him is killing fellow Chozo? This is just sloppy writing used as ane excuse to move the plot forward, like having the Federation go "Samus dindu nuffin" and having to hire her again to check out the apparently survival of the X parasite on this new Chozo planet. The EMMIs being also hacked to hunt down Samus felt fucking stupid. Hell, the whole EMMI things fucking stupid. Knowing that they are limited to a part of the map kills any tension the game could have. Fusion made it right 20 years ago with SA-X. It could appear anywhere in the map. She was roaming the whole station, and you never knew where she could pop out from. That was scary. This time, with the EMMIs being literally untouchable or you get killed in a very anticlimatic way (should be a +16 game, not a +12, the game pulls some body horror stuff at some point that could be great if expanded upon, but whatever) and they made me feel annoyance, not dread. Also the idea of having them linked to some Mother Brain lite made little sense. And once you get the red cannon from the defeated mini mother brains, the EMMIs stop moving to hunt you, and move in a way so you can shoot them down easily. All of them die the same way, with the same exact cutscene too. Not really exciting, doesn't give you a "phew finally" feel. More of a "I'm glad I don't have to outmaneuver you anymore, you beeping fuck". And you do that 6 times. It was bad. The whole game was built around that gimmick and the gimmick sucks. Like the melee counter still feeling tacked on and overpowered, making you one shot anything you parry succesfully. At least now you can do it while jumping and running too. Unique boss fights were entertaining, but most of them felt like another phase was missing. The bosses do heavy damage, but are once you learn their pattern quite easy to defeat. The final boss was at least the best of the bunch, thank god, and was fun to fight him. I'm also a sucker for the "antagonist is your relative and uses the same fighting style with some variations" so that was good. Easy once you learn the pattern as well, but engaging all the way. This kinda takes me back to the "story is fucking bullshit" part (the communication rooms where "Adam" talks to you by just making a recap of what you just did or explaining again the new item you just got was as asinine and uninteresting as they could have, and also kills the isolation aspect) but I'm repeating myself by now. Also, the ending screen is the same always. No matter how fast or what percentage of items you end up having, Samus is always on her suit striking a pose, and then glares to the side after the camera closes up to her visor. You unlock some gallery images, which is fine, but no reward of Samus without the helmet/suit/ is criminal and I feel it's current year bullshit creeping in, but I can't confrim that. That's all I needed to lower the end result from a 6/10 to a 5/10. Can you play the game without problem and it functions like it should? Yes. Can you get some enjoyement out of it? Some, yes. Does it fail what it was set to do? Yes. Falls short in many crucial aspects spectacularly. So that's my hot take. What do you guys think of the game? What are your expectations for Metroidbesides Metroid being able to crawl now at lastas a whole in the future? For me, the highlight was this game invalidates Other M's portrayal of Samus, so there is that at least. Also general Metroid thread.

Living in a Videogame World

If you could live in any video game or its world, which would you choose? Would it change anything if you could only be the main character or only an npc/regular person? Would it be at a certain time, before or after a certain event? I always liked Mimiga Village, it's quaint and quiet and cozy and (before the events of Cave Story) seems like a really peaceful little village. Fishing, gardening and cooking all while living in a tiny town like that sounds really nice. For the same reason I might want to live in one of the Animal Crossing or Harvest Moon games, or even a smaller place in a big world like Azeroth from World of Warcraft.

Shota Games Thread

Talk and lewd your favorite gaming shotas ITT. Also I happen to have a question, are there any non-H games that cater specifically to a shotacon demographic? Lolifags have stuff like Nobeta and Onirism, but I can't think of anything tantamount to that for this demographic.

New SH Leak (TRIGGER WARNING: NIGGERS)

A few hours ago someone in Twitter leaked what were allegedly images from an upcoming SH game, normally i woudn't care too. By the looks of it, it doesn't look good at all, it just seems like a lame indie horror game

OP: GameOrange

So for those not in the know, gamebanana has been under fire from modders in the FGC for not banning Nazi mods. Originally gamebanana defended the artisting integrity of the mod, however over time as the trannys pull thier mods, they caved and deleted the mod off their servers. Honestly I think we should have a new OP to prevent these mods from being deleted just because these modders can't control their emotions. 1. Go incognito and download their mods along with nazi mods 2. Create a website and upload their mods to said website 3. Ignore DMCA requests because these fuckers don't have a leg to stand on since they're already using copyrighted works anyway 4. Profit Gentlemen, let's get to work.

Reverse Engineers - Decompilations - Source Ports

There is something I'd like to discuss, especially with the more mechanically-endowed anons: how exactly do reverse-engineering and decompilations happen? I vaguely understand that at the core of it it's all about: >taking the assembly code used to run the game on PC or an emulator >using some special tools to restructure it in a format that would work with more abstract programming languages >moving upward the chain of languages or rinse and repeating the process until there's enough precision in the newly created source code >cataloguing and renaming all the temp variables within the newly acquired source code in order to make it human readable Am I missing some step here? Additionally, how come there's so few projects for recreating the source code behind certain cult games that have had their ROMs/ISOs publicly available for decades, stuff like the PS2 release of Silent Hill 2 or one of the original arcade releases of The House of the Dead? why was this thread removed?

Beach games

Lets go to the beach anon. The summer heat is killing me and now I need summer games about going to the beach to distract me from all the bugs waking up. Summer games in general works for me. I actually hate summer but lets try and focus on the positves.

AGDG DEMO DAY

ITS DEMO DAY Today is the day our hardworking nodevs take one step closer to being yesdevs. But in order to do that we need you to give their games a try and tell them if they are any good. >but I'm a lazy fuck who doesn't give a shit! Too bad, play the demos. >but I have to dilate this evening! I have no time! Too bad, play the demos. But if you're gay and insist on not playing the demos then you're in luck, I'm going to attempt to stream them all tomorrow on the 9th in the evening. However I may postpone it if some dev is late getting their game in and wants me to wait. So post games, play games, have fun. You know the drill.

Robotron-likes? - Whatever you call this twin stick genre Thread

There's this emerging genre of games that was kickstarted by the success of Vampire Survivors which has been all the talk lately but not new by any means, Robotron 2084 already did this about 40 years ago. A VS clone called HoloCure which is completely free and it stars several HoloLive v-tubers. It's surprisingly decent considering it literally costs nothing and I thought it would be cool to play it with fellow anons, post scores or whatever. (https://kay-yu.itch.io/holocure) Also I've been playing 20 Minutes Till Dawn but its absolutely kicking my ass and I can't get past the last boss of the first night or if I do, I die shortly after. My go to build is Abby + Batgun.
