/gameclub/ Thread - Silent Hill

Welcome to the /gameclub/, who could ask for more Everybody's comin', leave your body and soul at the door... >What's the /gameclub/? It's a thread where we play a game for a week and talk about it. Like GameFly, except it doesn't cost you money. GAME: The spooks continue this week with as we travel back to another horror classic, Silent Hill for the Playstation. >Silent Hill is a survival horror video game for the PlayStation published by Konami and developed by Team Silent, a group in Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo. The first installment in the Silent Hill series, the game was released in North America in February 1999, in Japan in March 1999 and in Europe in July 1999. Silent Hill uses a third-person view, with real-time rendering of 3D environments. To mitigate limitations of the console hardware, developers liberally used fog and darkness to muddle the graphics. Unlike earlier survival horror games that focused on protagonists with combat training, the player character of Silent Hill is an "everyman". >The game follows Harry Mason as he searches for his missing adopted daughter in the eponymous fictional American town of Silent Hill; stumbling upon a cult conducting a ritual to revive a deity it worships, he discovers her true origin. Five game endings are possible, depending on actions taken by the player, including one joke ending. >Silent Hill received positive reviews from critics on its release and was commercially successful. It is considered a defining title in the survival horror genre, and is also considered by many to be one of the greatest video games ever made, as it moved away from B movie horror elements toward a more psychological horror style, emphasizing atmosphere. Various adaptations of Silent Hill have been released, including a 2001 visual novel, the 2006 feature film Silent Hill, and a 2009 reimagining of the game, titled Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. The game was followed by Silent Hill 2 in 2001, and a direct sequel, Silent Hill 3, in 2003. (via Wikipedia) FUN FACT: Originally, the game was going to feature two playable character scenarios (similar to Resident Evil 2) where the player could take on either the role of Harry or that of Cybil. Cybil's story was cut, though elements of it still remain in the game like inaccessible areas and useless/non-obtainable items.

Worst level/stage in a game

Title is self-explanatory. Post what in your opinion is the worst part of a game, give a breakdown of why you think that. Anybody who's played Doom 2 will know why Map 13 sucks so much, so I'll give my thoughts on Grelbin from Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando instead >level is huge and mostly empty >it's effectively a complete reskin of an earlier level >hunting for crystals eventually feels like trying to find a needle in a haystack >tons of enemies spawning constantly >the YETI's attack animation is too fast so he can stunlock you >the base features an annoying "run out of the building" section with a timer >entire thing is filler that could be could be reduced to a cutscene According to one of the devs during a commentary, the development was about to wrap up and this level wasn't made yet, so Insomniac had one guy make this planet and gave him three days to do it. The end result was something so bad the studio has an award called the Golden YETI for people to contributed the worst aspect to a shipped title.

Mecha Games - Space for the Spacenoids Edition

ジークジオン! ジークジオン! What mecha games you playing? What's best mobile suit of the OYW? Which /m/ girls would you violate the Antarctic treaty with? Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation: Code Fairy has been announced, with actual details coming on the 19th (tomorrow accounting for timezones). Teaser trailer shows a cute ensign named "Alma Stirner" in a Zeon uniform who reports to an unseen female commander. It remains to be seen if she's the player character, or the viewpoint character that follows the player character and talks for them, though the name and presence of an OC implies there's an actual story here. You should play Battle Universe on PSP (or rather, PPSSPP) if you haven't already. It lets you create a pilot (well, name and choice of 6 portraits, 4 male, 2 female) and start as a grunt in the OYW and slowly gain skill as you participate in every conflict till the end of Char's Counterattack. It's Nippon only, but playable even if you're an English only peasant since besides a few menus that never change, the text either doesn't matter or is already in (oddly translated but understandable) English aside from the mission briefings (which are never important since objectives are limited to some sequence of "kill everything" "protect ally", "destroy particular enemy" and rarely "pick up containers and move them to objective".) and skill descriptions (which you look up once during character creation and are done with). Tips >download a save (any save) from Battle Royale and Battle Chronicle (gamefaqs has them) and complete the tutorial to skip a lot of grinding (gives 2/3 missions worth of experience to every single unit you obtain). >skills are actually important and determined based on your name and portrait >Newtypes have a bunch of exclusive stuff and gain stats faster than old types, who start as higher stats <non-New Type is hard mode once you're past Stardust Memory because more and more of the best stuff is locked to New Types and New Type growths overwhelm higher bases >A and S rank clears are required for various unlocks >using certain units five/ten times also unlocks stuff, and >skip White Dingo (in Australia) when you first get it and do the Atlantic Ocean mission instead since White Dingo is stupidly hard to start with and the other one is trivial to do with a Goog (which you'll have unlocked by the time you get this mission) or Char's Z'gok (Zaku II 5 times>Zaku II S 5 times>Char's Zaku 5 times). >a few missions have multiple routes, and the other one is generally unlocked by killing everything when you don't have to, failing certain objectives (target escapes etc.), or which exit you use. >charge shots don't require ammo and have some extra autoaim >you still get stat ups and (a very small amount of) tuning points if you fail a mission and can retry with no penalty, so don't quit when you're about to lose >since you're rated on damage taken, an agile glass cannon is the best build.

Hi gamers! Any game recommendations for Switch for a non-gamer?

I bought Dread and a Switch out of nostalgia. Loved Super Metroid as a kid. Now I'm wanting to get more out of the system. /b recommended Hades and Spelunky. Hades is really cool but it's really hard too. I can't do anything in Spelunky. I just die over and over again. It's hard to tell what games will be enjoyable since I haven't played videogames much at all since I was a kid. I'm afraid to buy more and just have a frustrating time.

MMO Thread

A general thread for discussion on MMOs. WoW: The Burning Crusade Classic releases in June and FFXIV: Endwalker releases in November. Currently FFXIV is crushing WoW in active subscriptions. This is actually a big deal as WoW has been chief MMO for over a decade, now it's been toppled. Truthfully FFXIV was even better than WoW years ago but WoW barely had the upper hand in subscriptions because of the old playerbase. Over time more of that older playerbase have realized the game is shit and not what it used to be and quit. The Burning Crusade Classic is really Blizzard's last chance at reeling back in that old playerbase, but I doubt it will contend with FFXIV. With all that being said, what MMOs are you currently playing or have recently played? I dabbled around with some private servers of old MMOs with you guys but I just got back on FFXIV to do some content I missed and to prepare for an upcoming patch.

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

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

Are hentai games self defeating?

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

Smash Bros

every Ultimate fighter is available today. Can you believe all the dlc combined costs more than the base game itself? It's true. >Fighters pass 1 = $25 >Fighters pass 2 = $30 >Piranha plant = $6 The base game just retailed for $60. Meaning that some players actually paid more than $120 to get the entire roster. Not including paying $4-$20 for Switch Online so you can play online. I personally don't think this mediocre fighting game is worth a $120+ price tag. But I suppose some people could justify that price because it's one of the most ambitious crossovers ever made.

Random Thread

How do you feel about randomness in video games? Should random chance ever have any impact at all in a game of skill? Is it better for things to be as close to truly random as possible and/or is it a negative thing to have a way for the player to influence random number generation in some way? Is randomness lazy and/or just a stopgap/band-aid? Do you believe in the Desire Sensor?

Designs/mechanics or just things that are way more prevalent than they deserve to be

Instead of the shit cuckchan OP, how about designs/mechanics or just things that are way more prevalent than they deserve to be. New or old, things that are so prioritized that everyone follows it and others mechanics gets depreciated. In Mad Max, they have no reason to put a Arkham style hand-to-hand combat. Actually, so does so many games where they just put this style just because it looks cool, even though it doesn't have martial arts or kung fu shit in it. It stiffled all other types of melee combat (especially third person) and attack-counter 2 button combat. Mad Max with a clunky ass melee system with random shit and you being overwhelmed in all directions would suit it so much more. Here you have enemies 360 surround you then attack one at a time so you can easily counter them. Timing your reactions are good, simple-to-learn-but-difficult-to-master is good for Batman games, but in Mad Max this takes away the survival aspect of wasteland.

FFXIV - Free Trial Edition

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

Going back to a game you never finished

I went back to GTA III and I'm about to play every 3D GTA game until 4 because despite very normalfag praising the games as the next coming of Christ most have never finished one due to baffling gameplay design decisions by R* As soon as the oldschool Trance started playing along with Da Shootaz, which I first heard on the GTA 1 menu, I was immersed and seeing the grungy and grimy Liberty City Streets only helped, the world design is great, it's just a shame the game is just 3D Driver with on foot shooting and the missions are nearly the same shit over and over. Ram car, collect shit against the clock, steal car, repeat. Still, I wish I could back to when life wasn't absolute 1984 tier shit and GTA III kind of reminds me of those times. Do you usually go back on games you never finished anons?

Games that are best played in a different way than by just playing the original

What are some games which are better played as a mod to some other game, or perhaps as and engine update and remake? Off the top of my head, I can't see a reason why not to download the mod that connects Fallout 3 and New Vegas together if you want to play them both. Dracula X Chronicles had Symphony of the Night with better voice-acting as a collectable bonus Any other examples you can think of that are like that?

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

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

/gameclub/ Thread - Splatterhouse 2

Abandon hope all ye who enter... this week's /gameclub/ thread! >What's the /gameclub/? It's a thread where we play a game and talk about it. Try out something you might have never played, share your thoughts, compare scores, and have fun. GAME: Try not to avert your gaze, it's Splatterhouse 2 for the Sega Genesis! Boo! >(for context) Splatterhouse is an arcade-style sidescrolling beat 'em up with platform elements, in which the player controls Rick, a parapsychology college major who is trapped inside West Mansion. After his resurrection by the Terror Mask, Rick makes his way through the mansion, fighting off hordes of creatures in a vain attempt to save his girlfriend Jennifer from a grisly fate. Players of this game will also recognize a number of western horror film influences, such as Friday the 13th, Evil Dead II, Poltergeist, Rejuvenatrix, and Parasite; with heavily influenced imagery similar to the works of horror writer H. P. Lovecraft such as Herbert West–Reanimator. (via Wikipedia) >Splatterhouse 2, known in Japan as Splatterhouse Part 2 (スプラッターハウスPART2) is a sidescrolling beat 'em up video game released in 1992 on the Mega Drive/Genesis home video game console published by Namco. It is the sequel to Splatterhouse. On August 4, 2008, the game was released on the Wii Virtual Console in North America. It is the first and the only ESRB M-rated game to be released for the Virtual Console. The game was included as an unlockable extra in the 2010 remake. >Three months have gone by since the events of the first game. Rick is still suffering from his guilt of being unable to save Jennifer and has been plagued by nightmares of her and the Terror Mask, which reformed after breaking at the climax of the first game. Suddenly, the mask reappears to Rick and tempts him to find the house, telling him that Jennifer can be saved. It closes by telling Rick that it will give him power. Rick succeeds in rescuing Jennifer, and the House sinks into the bottom of the river. (via Wikipedia) FUN FACT: The first Splatterhouse was a casualty back in the 90's panic over violence in videogames, getting pulled from arcades at points and censored on the TurboGrafx-16. Splatterhouse 2 on the other hand dodged a bullet thanks to its more obscure reputation, resulting in the brutal console classic we have today.

Konami is set to revive Metal Gear, Castlevania and Silent Hill https://archive.is/qlkSp >That’s according to publishing sources who spoke to VGC anonymously, because they did not have permission to discuss their projects publicly. >Konami’s premium games output has slowed down significantly in recent years. The last new Metal Gear game was 2018’s critically panned Metal Gear Survive, while the last mainline Castlevania release was 2014’s Lord of Shadow 2. >In the past decade, the company has arguably grown a bigger reputation for its Pachinko gambling games, than for its premium PC and console releases. >However, following a restructure to the company’s game development divisions earlier this year, Konami is now focused on bringing back its biggest brands to the premium games space, VGC was told. >The first of these titles will be a new Castlevania game, which sources described as a “reimagining” of the series currently in development internally at Konami in Japan, with support from local external studios. >There’s been much speculation that Demon’s Souls studio Bluepoint could be working on a remake of Metal Gear Solid. However, VGC was told the series is actually being worked on by an external studio, Virtuos. >The new project is currently in early development and multiple sources suggested it would be centred around fan-favourite entry Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, rather than the original MGS. >Konami also intends to release remasters of the original Metal Gear Solid games for modern consoles, ahead of the larger project, we understand. >Finally, multiple Silent Hill games are currently in development at various external development studios, as per an earlier VGC report from February. >One of these projects was outsourced to a prominent Japanese developer earlier this year, we were told. >Konami should publicly showcase its plans at major shows next year, disruption from the pandemic permitting. Konami pulled out of this year’s E3 2021 show due to “timing” issues, although at the time it confirmed it had “a number of key projects” in the works. Konami is Inviting Indie Developers to Make New Games Based on Some of Its Classic Series https://web.archive.org/web/20211002183521/https://www.ign.com/articles/konami-indie-games-classic-series-gradius-twinbee-goemon >Konami has announced an indie game contest that actively asks small developers to make games based on some of its classic series, including Gradius, Ganbare Goemon, and many more. >Konami's Action & Shooting Game Contest asks indie creators to plan and develop new action games and shooters based on past Konami titles. The rules allow for creators to make remakes or sequels, they can pick out a single character or mechanic from a past title, or even change or combine genres that may not have been in the originals. Through the collaboration of indie creators and Konami, these new works could potentially become commercial products. >A video outlining the contest was published by Konami. This contest is sponsored by Konami and held in cooperation with Shueisha Game Creators Camp, a project to support game developers. The contest began September 30 and will run until January 6, 2022. >Konami's specified 80 different games for creators to reimagine, including games from Gradius, Star Soldier, Twinbee, Ganbare Goemon, Knightmare and others. The full list can be found at the bottom of the official entry page (in Japanese). >It comes at an interesting time for Konami as a whole – a recent report says that the company is beginning to refocus on its owned series, and is becoming more open to allowing third-parties to develop games within them. While Konami itself is apparently handling new games for Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid, and Silent Hill, this contest seems to allow some of its lesser-known or more cult favourite series to re-emerge through different means. >The grand prize for the contest is 2 million yen (about $18,000 USD), and Konami will offer to publish works that can be commercialized. In addition to investing up to 30 million yen ($270,000 USD) in development funds for commercialized projects, Konami will provide supervision, production advice and support regarding localization, promotion and development equipment. What the hell has gotten into Konami? Making new Castlevania and Metal Gear games? Opening up their IPs to third-parties? This is completely out of character, a total 180 from how they were in 2016.

Creepy/Disturbing/Eerie Moments in Non-Horror Vidya

Figured this thread should be made for this month. Do you have any moments or instances that stand out to you? I hate how after watching those dumb GTA myth videos it instilled a thought in me that creepy shit are hidden in Rockstar games, but in reality they're just areas in a game with nothing lurking underneath. Though after watching shit like "creature spotted in Back O Beyond" or "haunted sprunk factory" I do get creeped out when exploring those areas.

What RPG are ya playing? Just got done playing? Looking forward to playing? I just got done playing my second playthrough of Dragon's Dogma. I fucking love that game so much. I might try Two Worlds 2 just because of the magic system and what I've seen about it. I tried it for a little back when it first came out and got bored of it, so I never got to the point where I can do cool stuff with the magic. I might just play it to pass the time for something else. There's Tales of Arise that comes out in September but I'm not too confident about it. I don't care for the graphics change. The characters shown in the trailer don't really interest me. The open world at least looks more detailed than past Tales games. I can tolerate it as long as the combat is good this time around.

Final Fantasy Thread

Are you playing any Final Fantasy games right now, or have played some recently? I've been playing FF12 for the first time this past week and I love it. The dialogue is seriously the best I've heard in a video game. Though I might have fucked myself in getting stuck. I'm at Draklor Laboratory now which I can't leave and didn't make a separate save file. I can barely kill three guards at once. I can probably just grind for license points and spend them on health and attack but I really need to start getting my party well equipped with the latest gear, I've been severely lacking in doing that. Though I've been wondering about something. I only made it to Archades because I looked up the routes. Imagine playing this pre-internet and trying to get from Mt Bur-Omisace to Archades. I actually do like traversing the world in this game though.

Games that you consider good but dissapointed you

Or to be more exact, what games you feel are good and could be great but aren't? We're not talking about games which seemed great but turned out to be shit, but about games that are good, you still enjoy them, but they aren't as good as you wish they were. For me it's Cultist Simulator. I like the autistic card gameplay and following along with the story as well as figuring out the mechanics as I go, but the moment I actually figure out the mechanics, the game turns into a simple RPG game. not a bad RPG game, but one with a big heavy flaw. At the very bottom of it Cultist Simulator is a game about managing time in which you don't have to manage time. Spoilers ahead. The hunters pose literally no fucking threat. There is literally no reason to get rid of the detective. You don't get anything for doing it, and you only fuck yourself over by killing him because a stronger hunter will appear. So you just keep the detective and fuck over his evidence from time and you basically don't have to worry about them anymore. What exactly is the point of allievating. The moment you realise that certain risks are just not worth it at all, the game becomes a matter of waiting and nothing more, so there is literally no incentive to take more risks. Another one is System Shock 1, because this game is geniuently fun and really good when it comes to exploration and fighting, but why should I scavenge for resources and fend enemies off as well as thinking strategically when just bum rushing into them and getting revived with no penalty does the trick already?

Dark Souls

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

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.

Things that are instantly indicative of a game server's quality.

What's something you've noticed that immediately tips you off on how good or bad a game server is as soon as you join? One thing that tells me "this server is complete dogshit" is as follows: >Rule #: No admin disrespect >Rule #: admins have final word >Rule #: don't argue with admins Every time I see this, I instantly know that it's being ran by turboniggers that never experienced banter, or have never been told no or been criticized before. They'll make a retarded decision or say something dumb or enforce a rule so hard that it looks obsessive, and if anyone has anything to say about it, it all turns into the admins throwing a hissy fit while accusing aforementioned user of doing the same, and eventually getting rid of whoever is annoying them with a ban or mute. You can't forget the suckups who always take the admin's side, too. On the contrary, something that tells me "hey this server is pretty decent": <server doesn't run the same fucking gimmick/famous/tiny meme maps over and over <there's an actual fucking map rotation and everything is kept mostly vanilla besides an unobtrusive plugin here and there <there's actually active voice chat instead of an entire lobby of silent shitscord niggers It's rare to find a game server nowadays that has a decent map rotation AND has active voice chat. When I do on those rare occasions though, it's usually a great time.

Games That Would Be Better With Their Unique Elements Removed

Mega Man ZX is a fun Mega Man Metroidvania, which is an interesting combonation, but the Metroidvania parts are easily the game's worst elements. It has no idea how to place save/teleport points (leading to excessive backtracking), the in-game map is probably the worst way of handling it in the genre, almost all hidden pickups are just bestiary entries, and only one of the four new forms, the one that gives a double jump, directly aids in unlocking new areas (one lets you swim underwater letting you access one extra new area while another lets you break blocks that only block off optional areas) with the rest of unlocking new stuff handled by getting keycards after each boss. The areas themselves are relatively linear, just linked by a few mazier areas acting as a hub, so I think it would have been better just cutting the hub entirely. Playing with Nipponese voices (and thus most of the main plot having voice acting) and it's impossible not to see Aile and Prairie as a couple. The way Aile speaks to and about Prarie is definitely not "just friends".The only way the official audio drama Girls Bravo could get gayer is if they kissed. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=adEGJmfqK_s

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?

Tactics Games

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.

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

The Future of TF2: NOT A DRILL Edition

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

Vertical Shooter/Bullet Hells

>Favorite game? >Favorite visuals? >Favorite music? >Favorite boss fights? I used to not really care for this genre but I've played a few recently, all being pic-related and now I'm pretty much hooked. Also played Armed Police Batrider which I also enjoyed. The hardest one though is for sure ESP Ra.De. I don't know how it's humanly possible for someone to dodge all those bullets. I can't really say what my favorite is out of every game because I still want to play more of these, but so far I really liked Dodonpachi. Dodonpachi 2 felt dumbed down in difficulty, like you could dodge bullets more easily. Espgaluda also felt easier than ESP Ra.De. It felt like you could phase through bullets most of the time and you can even use that time-slow secondary. Espgaluda does have really good music though, and the last boss was really cool.

Omori

Here's a game that seems to have flown somewhat under the radar. It's another RPG maker game in the same vein as LISA and Hylics, and features a pretty good art style, plus some nice music. Sadly, the music and the art style and the characters are pretty much the only good part about this game, the gameplay itself is quite easy and not too noteworthy. At times it cares more about telling a story rather than providing some sort of gameplay. The story itself is tolerable but not very inspired and the pacing kind of fucks itself later on. It's apparently been in developer hell before it released in full earlier this year.

Why are there basically no gory mech/mecha games? Like if you look at the Mechwarrior franchise all you really get when you destroy a mech's cockpit is the mech immediately falling over. Why aren't there any games that depict a mech's destruction in a gory manner, like the interior of a cockpit getting splattered in blood from penetrating shots, shredded bodies visible through shattered cockpit canopies, or shit, maybe even fatally wounded pilots trying to crawl out? The closest I can think of is the death FMV for MW2 mercenaries. Is it just too technically demanding to show that much detail or do developers just not think it's worth the effort?

Most fun combat system

What's the most fun combat system out of all games of all time? What game combat made you play more of the game just because the combat is inheritably fun? I mean simply the combat, none of the underlining systems that complement it are to be taken into consideration. So if you love FF7 combat because of the materia system, try to judge it just by the ATB turn based combat instead. I'd think the answer will probably be something skill based like rhythm games or FPS, but I'd like to hear anon's opinions. I honestly am not sure myself what would be my own answer, but I guess Valkyrie Profile is pretty fun how you try to keep enemies airborne and combo them down to activate the special attacks.

MOBA Thread

Have you ever played a MOBA? From what I've seen the meme of League of Legends players being no-lifers is actually true. It's like the game completely absorbs a majority of their life. I've never actually played it and I don't think I want to, I'd probably fall easily into being addicted to it. The only MOBA's I've ever played were Smite, Pokemon Unite, and one that most people probably don't know about is Guardians of Middle-Earth. It was a Lord of the Rings MOBA and out of all the ones I've played I actually had fun playing that one. Smite was alright but I stopped playing it after about a week. I played Pokemon Unite for like one day and was actually playing good but the game is P2W so I dropped it.

/gameclub/ Thread - Sonic the Hedgehog 3

Welcome back to the /gameclub/! If I posted this yesterday I could have called it Sonic Sunday. >What's the /gameclub/? It's a thread where we play a game and talk about it. Try out something you might have never played, or might have played, forget why you liked it, share your thoughts, compare scores, and have fun. GAME: We're playing Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (& Knuckles...) for the Genesis! >Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is a 1994 platform game developed and published by Sega. Like previous Sonic games, players traverse side-scrolling levels at high speeds while collecting rings and defeating enemies. They control Sonic and Tails, who attempt to retrieve the Chaos Emeralds to stop the evil Doctor Robotnik from relaunching his space station, the Death Egg, after it crash-lands on a mysterious floating island. Sonic 3 introduces Knuckles the Echidna, the island guardian, who lays traps for Sonic and Tails. >Development began in January 1993 by Sega Technical Institute (STI) in California, shortly after the release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. It was initially developed as an isometric game similar to Sonic 3D Blast (1996), but became a conventional 2D platform game due to time constraints. Sonic 3 was developed simultaneously with Sonic & Knuckles; they were planned as a single game until time constraints and cartridge costs forced the developers to split it. The Sonic 3 cartridge can be attached to an adapter on the Sonic & Knuckles cartridge, creating a combined game, Sonic 3 & Knuckles. According to some members of the development team, pop musician Michael Jackson composed portions of the soundtrack but left the project and went uncredited; his involvement was denied by senior Sega staff. Pussies. >Sonic 3 was released for the Sega Genesis in North America and Europe in February 1994, and in Japan in May. As with its predecessors, it was a critical and commercial success, with critics seeing it as an improvement over previous installments. It sold over one million copies in the United States, making it one of the bestselling Genesis games. It has been rereleased for various platforms, including as part of the compilations Sonic Jam (1997), Sonic & Knuckles Collection (1997), Sonic Mega Collection (2002) and Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (2009). (via Wikipedia) FUN FACT: The original Sonic 3 cartridge includes most of the data from Sonic & Knuckles, just inaccessible to the poor 90's children who could only afford one of the two games.

Koichi Sugiyama has died

Already made a post about this in the minor news thread Dragon Quest composer Koichi Sugiyama has died at age 90, due to septic shock. https://archive.ph/xSHh9 >Koichi Sugiyama, a Japanese composer and conductor known for his music in the popular Dragon Quest video game franchise, died on Sept. 30 of septic shock, his office said. He was 90. Sugiyama, who composed music for the hit video game franchise since its release in 1986, is considered to have played a key role in its boom and establishing the genre of game music with the release of related CDs and orchestral concerts. >Music from the Dragon Quest series was played during the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics this July. Born in Tokyo, Sugiyama first worked at the radio production firm Nippon Cultural Broadcasting Inc. before joining Fuji Television Network Inc., where he directed the music program “The Hit Parade.” >He left the TV station in 1965 to become a freelance composer, going on to create many hit songs with his familiar and lively melodies. >His hit songs include “Koi no Fuga” (“Fugue of Love”) by The Peanuts, a duo of twin sisters, and “Gakuseigai no Kissaten” (“Student District Coffee Shop”) by folk rock group Garo. >He also composed fanfares for venues such as the Tokyo Racecourse, the theme song for the “Return of Ultraman” superhero TV series, and many pieces for anime and commercials. >Sugiyama has been recognized by Guinness World Records as the oldest video game music composer. >Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno offered condolences over his death, saying “many people must have been moved” when the Dragon Quest music was played during the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony. >Popular comic Dragon Ball series creator Akira Toriyama, who also worked on character designs for Dragon Quest, posted his condolences on the game’s official website Thursday, saying, “I am truly honored to have worked with you for so long!” >“I had thought of you as a wizard with eternal life. It is no exaggeration to say that Dragon Quest’s image was formed by the wonderful and impressive songs of Mr. Sugiyama, who loved the game from the start,” he said. I guess this would be a good a thread as any to post some of his best music. And laugh at the cuck/chink apologists dancing on his grave because he was a nationalist who challenged the Nanking/comfort women meme. RIPIP

The Golden Age of FPS began with the release of the Doom shareware on December 10,1993. It died on November 19, 1998 with the release of Half-Life. It was an age marked by countless great shooters, all with maximum amounts of SOUL, all inspired by Doom. But then came Half-Life, an outright joke compared to games like Doom or Rise of the Triad, and it all disappeared. Why did this happen?

Scarlet Nexus

Why did this game drop off the radar so quickly? At least it seemed like that to me. I was thinking it's because the game hardly got any marketing for an AAA game. When it was first revealed it was made out to be a big deal of a game. I'm playing it now and have gotten to the part where I meet Arashi and Gemma. I don't really have a problem with the game. If anything I like the combat, and the music is pretty damn good. The story does carry itself like an anime though which I don't have a problem with either. The one thing I kinda don't like is the still frame custscenes where the only thing moving is the character's mouths. It just feels lazy.

Super Monkey Ball

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, known simple as "Super Monkey Ball Remake" in Japan released yesterday and I have a copy of it. It's a bit of a mixed bag but it is definitely the best game in the series released since Deluxe and probably rates just after the Xbox version of Deluxe for most people as one of the better games in the franchise. However it's worth noting that Sega made some baffling and downright jewish decisions with the game. I'll go over the pros and cons in green and pink. >All the levels look fantastic in HD with the redesigns >Large variety of characters to purchase and choose from in game >Huge variety of customization options in the form of new balls, hats, shirts, and shoes available to purchase and use >Little to no grind involved in unlocking said content above >All the old minigames make a return from 1&2 >new gamemodes like collect all bananas, avoid all bananas, reverse stages, etc. can be purchased in game with points you unlock >can now get points for unlockables in ALL gamemodes >sets for original SMB1/SMB2/Deluxe levels in challenge mode >optional gyro controls >let you replay story mode themed levels >can follow or race the ghosts of other players in challenge mode <Cannot use custom balls or any of the non-main 6 characters in party games <lives have been removed <new soundtrack has 3 good songs, rest suck, pale in comparison to original OST and don't even fit their theme most of the time <DLC is overpriced <pull a capcom and charge you 5 bucks for the original soundtrack/effects/announcer/models <DX level set is just the Deluxe levels by themselves rather than a full Deluxe level set with all the levels from that game's challenge mode <Story mode reduced to an incomprehensible slideshow that no one would understand if they didn't know anything about the SMB2/DX story mode <no online multiplayer for main or party games There's so much right done here, that many of these faults are just baffling to me. They could have made a perfect remake with just a few tweaks man. I wonder if modders will do anything with this, or if the community will keep playing Gamecube customs. As of yet it tells me that only 473 players have beaten the story mode, normalfags need to step up their game.

games that just arent worth finishing?

what games did you start and just could not be bothered to finish and why? ill start with a few of my own. Earthworm jim 2; i absolutely love the aesthetic of that game but fuck those dog levels. made it past villi people like twice ever, despite that cartridge probably having one of the higher playtimes of any game that i had at the time. farcry 2 and 3; for 2 the gameplay loop was just shit. for 3, i felt like i beat the game after i completed what the game sets you up to do. didnt enjoy the direction the game went so i felt i was done with it. kingdom come deliverance: level scaling sucks ass. for a game that sold itself on being super dooper historically accurate up to a point, having every bandit camp suddenly have full endgame plate armor prevented me from further suspending my disbelif, not to mention making what was a fun combat expierence turn into a slog, and fuck you if you thought you really had any option in weapon choice in an rpg, hope you focused on blunt weapons! which brings me to the last two i care to talk about here: underrail and shadowrun returns; both games are crpgs, where the whole point is giving the player at least more than one choice in how to approach a given scenario and guess what? both games demand a very specific player build to pass a mandatory combat encounter. fuck off. at least underrail was competently made up until that point, shadowrun returns was a buggy piece of shit and the class i chose was useless because the whole point of the class (access to drones) did not fucking work the entire game. i was even willing to put up with that until the game punished me more than halfway through for not speccing every single character i had into shotguns.

I've been wondering what to do with this information, but I figured at this point, it need to be put out, so people can know the truth: I was wondering why I was losing as a support, despite how well I played. No matter how I healed, or damage boosted, despite being the last player on my team alive over and over in teamfights, all I could do was heal the last player while I watched as their HP dropped to zero, before the enemy team killed me next. Nearly every game felt so one-sided that even if a TAS-bot took my place, it couldn't win. No amount of positioning, strategy, or tactics mattered. So I began to record the hero damages from both sides, for a series of games. I wish I could say the results shocked me. 15 games were counted for recording. I took all the averaged hero damage totals from both the allied and enemy sides where possible. During the entire 15-game campaign, the enemy damage had an aggregated total damage advantage of nearly 10% compared to allied damage. What's most damning is this: in the games where damage could be compared, the enemy damage was superior in 75% of games. That means that 3/4 of every competitive game had a consistently better enemy damage duo. Making winning virtually impossible. So many people have already talked about it (search for "overwatch rigged"), but to see it present in my own games shows just how disgusting it truly is. Overwatch is the single most rigged online FPS shooter game in history, and Blizzard is the most malevolent video game company in the entire industry. They are liars, cheaters, and horrible people, and the company needs to be destroyed. Fortunately, it looks like it already is.

Make a Good 48 Hour Mega Man Level

It's finally out! https://magmmlcontest.com/48h.php >what is it Make a Good Mega Man level series is a set of Mega Man fan games based on releasing the tool set for a Mega Man fan-game engine and challenging people to Make a Good Mega Man Level with it. This particular game has the added gimmick of giving people a random "box" of stage gimmicks and forcing them to make a level with them in 48 hours. If you haven't already, play Make a Good Mega Man Level 1 Remastered and Make a Good Mega Man Level 2. Due to its nature MAG48HMML is obviously going to be much rougher in quality (though what I've played so far of the top levels is excellent) and since it just came out I'm sure there will be at least a v1.01 within the week. MAG24HMML is way too rough and not all that good, and Episode Zero is an interesting spinoff but really only something to play if you want more. >why should I play it?

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

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

It's a thread where we play a game and talk about it. Try out something you might have never played, share your thoughts, compare scores, and have fun. GAME: This week's game is Altered Beast for the Sega Genesis (aka Mega Drive). >Altered Beast is a 1988 beat 'em up arcade game developed and manufactured by Sega. The game is set in Ancient Greece and follows a player character chosen by Zeus to rescue his daughter Athena from the demonic ruler of the underworld, Neff. Through the use of power-ups, the player character can assume the form of different magical beasts (wolf, dragon, bear, tiger, and golden wolf). After its initial arcade release, it was ported to several home video game consoles and home computers, including the Sega Genesis, for which it was a pack-in game. >The game was developed by Makoto Uchida, who developed the game as his first project as a lead developer. Uchida and his team used the System 16 arcade system board for its graphical capabilities with sprites. Altered Beast was ported numerous times in addition to its Genesis conversion, including for the Master System by Sega and to several computer systems and video game consoles by various third parties. >Altered Beast's arcade release and its various ports have all received mixed reviews, mainly targeting the game's gameplay and graphics. The game has been rereleased several times for various consoles and as part of video game compilations. Two sequels to the game have been developed. (via Wikipedia) FUN FACT: The lead designer Makoto Uchida took inspiration from numerous other works for the game's design, notably The Howling, Ray Harryhousen films, and even Michael Jackson's Thriller.

Doing FPS RPGs right

To avoid further derailing the Underail thread, I'm making a thread for this. FPS shooters often suffer from >loads of HP bloat >shitty samey guns >character skill that doesn't really mean anything next to character skill >guns that break from normal use How do we fix this? The only game I can think of that made a bunch of different guns feel unique and worthwhile was Fallout: New Vegas. Here's a copy-paste of the director's thoughts when someone asked him how he balanced weapons, since once you read it you immediately notice a lot of really smart but subtle design choices. >A weapon's balance is interpreted relative to weapons that are a) like it in function (e.g. a 9mm SMG is like a 10mm SMG) b) like it in cost/availability (e.g. you find 10mm SMGs around the same time that you find .44 Magnum Revolvers). >When considering the "conceptual place" for the weapon, you should really be answering these questions: <Why will this weapon be fun to use? The first and most important question. <What weapons should this weapon be similar to in role/function? This can help you establish statistics that make sense relative to other weapons that are similar. <What weapons should this weapon be comparable to in overall power? When you answer this, you know what the player is likely choosing between for available weapons at any given point in their development. <In what situations will I want to use this weapon instead of another weapon of similar power? If there is not a circumstance in which a weapon shines, players likely won't use it. <In what situations will I want to use other weapons of similar power INSTEAD of this weapon? If a weapon dominates every situation, they will have no motive to use anything else. <If there are less powerful weapons that are similar to this weapon, in what way will they still be valuable once I get this weapon? In some cases, this may be as simple as mod availability. E.g. Trail Carbines can take scopes; Brush Guns cannot. <If there are more powerful weapons that are similar to this weapon, in what way will THIS weapon still be valuable when I find the more powerful version? Same idea. >Let's take two weapons that pose challenges: the Combat Shotgun and the Assault Rifle. There are a lot of shotguns and automatic Guns in F:NV, especially with all of the DLCs installed -- but I still think there's room for these two. <Combat Shotgun: <Why will this weapon be fun to use? High rate of fire shotgun with high DPS, available earlier than the Riot Shotgun. It will also make use of 20 Ga. shells (16 per drum, 4 higher than the Riot), which stop being used in F:NV after the Lever-Action Shotgun. <What weapons should this weapon be similar to in role/function? Most similar to the Riot Shotgun, distinguished by lower DAM, higher accuracy, and a higher RoF. <What weapons should this weapon be comparable to in overall power? Tier 4 Guns (Hunting Shotgun, Trail Carbine, Sniper Rifle, 12.7mm Pistol) <In what situations will I want to use this weapon instead of another weapon of similar power? Close range (closer than the Hunting Shotgun), when volume of fire is more important than raw damage (Trail Carbine, Sniper Rifle), and when reload speed is important (Trail Carbine). <In what situations will I want to use other weapons of similar power INSTEAD of this weapon? When accuracy or high DAM are important. Slugs can mitigate the DAM and accuracy concerns somewhat, but even the lower-DAM 12.7mm pistol will still have higher accuracy. <If there are less powerful weapons that are similar to this weapon, in what way will they still be valuable once I get this weapon? The Lever-Action Shotgun still has a higher DAM and accuracy, though the Combat Shotgun destroys it in DPS, RoF, capacity, and reload speed. <If there are more powerful weapons that are similar to this weapon, in what way will THIS weapon still be valuable when I find the more powerful version? The Combat Shotgun has lower spread, higher magazine capacity, and higher durability than the Riot Shotgun. The Riot Shotgun kills the Combat Shotgun in DAM and DPS. >Assault Rifle: <Why will this weapon be fun to use? Solid DAM automatic weapon with reasonable accuracy, high RoF, and plenty of ammo availability. <What weapons should this weapon be similar to in role/function? Most similar to the Assault Carbine. <What weapons should this weapon be comparable to in overall power? Tier 4 Guns (Hunting Shotgun, Assault Carbine, Trail Carbine, Sniper Rifle, 12.7mm Pistol) <In what situations will I want to use this weapon instead of another weapon of similar power? Close range, when raw DAM is a concern but accuracy is less of a concern. <In what situations will I want to use other weapons of similar power INSTEAD of this weapon? Long range, or when armor is more of a concern than total health (cf. Assault Carbine). <If there are less powerful weapons that are similar to this weapon, in what way will they still be valuable once I get this weapon? The 10mm SMG edges the Assault Rifle out in weight and ammo capacity. <If there are more powerful weapons that are similar to this weapon, in what way will THIS weapon still be valuable when I find the more powerful version? The Automatic Rifle destroys the Assault Rifle in raw DAM and DPS, but weighs much more and uses rarer, heavier ammo. The Assault Rifle also has a Recoil Compensator mod that brings its accuracy down below even the Assault Carbine. I think the biggest and most important one is >If there are less powerful weapons that are similar to this weapon, in what way will they still be valuable once I get this weapon? It really does a lot to obscure how weapons are in an increasing power level. In most FPS RPGs, there's never any reason to go back to older guns or skip an upgrade (beyond money) since everything is just all around better. In New Vegas however you'd often stick to guns because it matched your playstyle.

New Peripeteia Demo & a Kickstarter

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

Odd vidya crossovers

I mean most vidya crossovers in themselves are odd in the sense that you'd never expect something from one video game to be in another, but over time people just got use to it. Not even 5 years ago you could tell me Sephiroth or Kazuya were gonna be in Smash. One crossover in particular though that I thought was odd, yet cool at the same time is Akuma in Tekken 7.

Bobby Kotick and other ABK execs subpoenaded by the SEC, Activision-Blizzard under investigation.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS INVESTIGATING ACTIBLIZZ LMAO https://archive.is/KSG1k >Activision Blizzard is now the subject of a "wide-ranging" Securities and Exchange Commission investigation into its handling of employee complaints about sexual misconduct and discrimination in the workplace. According to The Wall Street Journal, the SEC, an agency of the US government, is asking for notes recorded during board meetings since 2019, the files of six former employees, and separation agreements from this year. >The SEC has also subpoenaed several of the company's executives, including CEO Bobby Kotick, and wants records of Kotick's communications with other company executives about sexual harassment and discrimination complaints. >The investigation adds to the pressure that Activision Blizzard is already facing in the wake of a discrimination and sexual harassment lawsuit filed against it by California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing in July. That lawsuit was expanded in August when the DFEH claimed that Activision was actively hampering its legal action, including by shredding documents related to "investigations and complaints" and hiring an anti-union law firm to audit its internal policies. >Formed in 1934 in the wake of the infamous Wall Street crash of 1929, the SEC's primary mission is "to protect investors; maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets; and facilitate capital formation," its website says. It wields a very big stick, with functions and responsibilities ranging from credit ratings and information technology to equal employment opportunities, international affairs, ethics, and inclusion of women and minorities. >An SEC spokesperson said in an email to PC Gamer that the agency "does not comment on the existence or nonexistence of a possible investigation." An Activision Blizzard representative confirmed that an investigation is underway, however. >"The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is conducting an investigation concerning the Company’s disclosures regarding employment matters and related issues, and has issued subpoenas to the Company and several current and former employees that seek information related to this," a spokesperson said. "The company is cooperating with the SEC."

Advanced Wars By Web (AWBW)

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

Aftermath of Cyberpunk 2077

It seems universally agreed upon this game was/is mess, albeit a financially successful one. What I find more interesting is how, unlike The Witcher 3, nobody is really talking about this anymore only a few months after release. CDPR has since >lost dozens of major employees including several studio vets >put virtually the entire studio on bugfix mode >gotten served class-action lawsuits >cancelled the planned online game >delayed the current-gen console versions (which still aren't out yet, no ETA either) >reorganized their entire marketing strategy >got investigated by Polish authorities >probably lost years of internal productivity just from trying to fix the game and deal with the fallout Remember when Sony removed CP77 from the PlayStation store last year? It's still gone. They never re-added it. There are videos with millions of views cataloguing every cut feature, empty promise and outright lie from 2012 up to release. Speaking of which, did you know the game didn't start development until late 2016? Yes, they had four years to try and make all of that. This comes with the other realisation that there was no game before then, everything from 2012 to mid 2016 didn't exist. All that existed was concept art and a rough game idea, said ideas ended up being totally scrapped when development started anyway. That's why the final game looks nothing like the famous CGI trailer. The game was recently nominated at two separate award shows for a total of seven different categories, where it won exactly 0 awards. It's so rare to see this kind of thing happen to such a big project . What do you anons think? What's the future of this game and CDPR in general?

/gameclub/ Thread - Super Castlevania IV

Welcome to this week's gameclub thread! >What's the /gameclub/? It's a thread where we play a game, and talk about it, like an anime club. Try out something you might have never played, share your thoughts, compare scores, and have fun. GAME: You like Castlevania, don't you? This week's game is Super Castlevania IV for the SNES! Finally back, by popular demand. >Super Castlevania IV is a 1991 platform game developed and published by Konami. Released originally for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, it has been re-released multiple times, including for the Super NES Classic Edition. Super Castlevania IV features expanded play control, 16-bit graphics featuring Super NES's Mode 7, and a soundtrack featuring new pieces and arrangements based on previous Castlevania music. Following the same setting as Castlevania on the NES, the game takes place in 1691 Transylvania, where the vampire hunter Simon Belmont must defeat the vampire Dracula. The game received critical acclaim with some calling it one of the greatest video games of all time. (via Wikipedia) >Super Castlevania IV is, story-wise, a remake of the first game in the series. Set in the year 1691, the game casts the player in the role of Simon Belmont, a vampire hunter armed with a powerful whip, on a quest to defeat the evil Count Dracula in his castle. Despite the identical plot, the six castle stages have different layouts and themes; also, five initial stages that depict Simon's advancement towards the castle through various environments have been added. >The gameplay consists of traversing timed, linear platform stages, defeating enemies with the whip or sub-weapons that require collecting hearts and can be found by destroying parts of the scenery. Simon's stand-out ability in this installment are eight-directional attacks with his whip, which allow him, among others, to damage enemies standing below and above him. Holding out the whip will block enemy attacks. Simon can also latch his whip on special grappling points to swing over pits and obstacles. Game progression is saved by passwords given to the player after a stage has been completed. Visually, the game uses hardware "Mode 7" effects such as parallax scrolling, rotating rooms, and pseudo-3D objects in some locations. (via Moby Games) FUN FACT: Many of the bosses in the game are named humorously, like Puwexil (lix ew up), Koronot (ton o rok), and the lovely dancing duo Fred Askare & Paula Abgoul.

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

Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)/Famicom (FC) thread

Went through old sales listings for Nintendo by year. It's easy to forget how slow a start the NES had. The thing's US debut came in 1985 (I don't have listings for that year though), but most of the games everyone remembers beyond a cameo only came out in 1987+, which literally had more games that the previous two years combined. Any less talked about good games on the platform that aren't just more "character action" (platformers) from an era full of them? It's easy to get the perception the NES's entire library was side scrollers, looping arcade style titles, puzzles, sports, racing, autoscroller shooters, the odd jRPG (mainly Final Fantasy+Dragon Quest which came out fairly late in the west) plus whatever one calls the cryptic world exploration game Metroid+Zelda+Zelda 2+Castlevania 2 fall into. Examples of Strategy (Nobunaga's Ambition and the Nippon only Fire Emblem + Nintendo Wars), Stealth (the bad port of Metal Gear), and Adventure (Shadowgate etc.) are pretty rare.

Uncommon Time: Year 6

We have an ongoing issues where we don't have someone to stream the game, and the other guy on zzzchan basically refused to do it for personal reasons. Here's the rest of the OP from the thread if anyone wants to discuss it.. >What is Uncommon Time? It's a bad RPGMaker game made by a sexually-ambiguous girlboy that has been streamed bi-annually for the past six years now, usually once in December and again in the first(?) week of August. It has notoriously bad writing that is laughable at best and infuriating at worst. >Why should I care? It's a forced tradition that's guaranteed fun and typically generates a decent amount of content, already having at least three fan games, two rewrites plus mine, an alleged voice acted production, some fan fiction which is kind of gay, and a lot more art and macros that it deserves. That is, so long as it's streamed. >Who's streaming? YOU CAN DO IT! I BELIEVE IN YOU! >I don't know who or even if it will be streamed; this sort of thing is never really organized to my knowledge. The first one was this schizoid named Lolioasis who eventually fell into drunken insanity and then disappeared. The second streamer is Thassil, who may or may have not committed suicide by now. The third streamer, Teaganbestgirl, has only streamed for the winter and is almost certainly a homosexual. I picked up the mantle for a December-January stream and my only crime has been having shit taste in music as far as I'm concerned. While I can't stream, I don't mind setting up a cytube room since I had some pretty nice CSS and a good amount of emotes that should almost all be preserved, and I may be able to share some OBS scene configs if anyone is interested in those, but I really wouldn't know how to even go about that since I don't do this often. I should also be able to get some moderators to help mitigate some spam if that's an issue that comes up, so that should alleviate 90% of the pressure. >In the meantime, feel free to ask questions about streaming if you're interested as well as post any discussion about the game and the content that has come from it. I know the turn-based tactics spinoff has been going quite well and that rewrite guy has been keeping a fairly consistent devlog.

Phantasy Star Thread

Talk about any Phantasy Star game, but mainly the online titles because who gives a shit about the single-player games. I've been playing PSO2 for around 5 days now and I'm level 60. I really like the combat which I'm a Hunter right now but I'm planning on switching to Etoile or Phantom, whichever one of those has the katana. The only little problem I've come across is needing premium to sell stuff in your player shop. If there's no free alternative to being able to do that then that's retarded, because other free-to-play games let you do basic shit like sell your items to other players. The gacha for cosmetics doesn't really bother me. I haven't even touched the story episodes, not sure if there's a benefit to doing those or not. I've just been doing expeditions, recommended quests and urgent quests. I pretty much just wanted to try this because prior to this I was playing PSU and pretty much did most of the content in that game, except for levelling up other classes. I still suggest anons try that private server out and I'll go back to it myself once the developers of the private server add more stuff to it. Hopefully PSO2 stays alive enough for me to enjoy it before SEGA possibly scraps all of it to focus on NGS.

Cryptic Bullshit In Vidya

What is some cryptic bullshit in vidya that pissed you off? In Crash Bandicunny to get one of the face tokens for the mad scientist bonus level in Heavy Machinery, you have to drop down a random pit that looks no different from all the other pits in the game that just kill you. Who would ever even think to do that shit. There's no hint given, nothing. In Bandicunny 2, the secret path in Snow Go isn't even hidden in the level itself. Instead, you have to go to Air Crash, ignore the fucking jet ski, and hop over to a random platform to randomly be warped to it. This one really infuriated me. Wasted so much time in the level itself looking for the secret path their. Fuck. They pulled the same shit in Road to Ruin, hiding the entrance to the secret path in an entirely different level. Specifically, you have to buttstomp a random pirannha plant that's in a completely different level. What's gay as fuck is that you'd normally want to stay as far away as possible from the fucking plants because they're covered in thorns and you usually get fucked up when you try to jump on them. Also in Warped, there is some real bullshit. You have to run into a random sign to get warped to one of the secret levels. To access the other one, you have to let a certain enemy kill you at one specific point in a certain level. You just know garbage like this was thrown in the games just to sell magazines.

Why do lower resolutions contain more detail?

I was configuring what resolution to have my Vita TV output, and, something strange that I noticed is that, the lower resolution seems to display better than when I select the higher resolution. Granted, I'm having the image pushed through an upscaler because the Vita TV outputs a max of 720p, and I want it to output at 1080p for my display, but that shouldn't change anything. Here's some screenshots showing what I'm talking about. The first two are the system outputting at 480p (Before being upscaled). The last three are the system outputting at 720p (Before being upscaled). However, the last image is outputting a resolution that is slightly lower than the immediate prior image as it's using the Sharpscale plugin with the "Fitted" option selected so that the image isn't stretched to all borders of the screen. So, from what I'm seeing, it looks like the "raw" 480p resolution looks the best, the "raw" 720p image looks the worst, and the "Fitted" 720p image straddles between Is anyone else noticing the, although slight, differences in look?

This character is a fucking dumpster fire So I finally got around to playing commie-made detective RPG Disco Elysium. I mostly like the game (at least played as a fascist if I can ignore the annoying zipperhead the game makes follow me around), but everything surrounding this character is a fucking mess. For those of you who haven't had the opportunity to play this game, I'll explain it here. Measurehead (pic related) is a black supremacist character descended from emigrants from a fictional black island nation in Disco Elysium's equally fictional setting. He exists primarily in contrast to another character, a flabby and vulgar white supremacist who the game positions in the same direction as him from the starting point of the game to virtually guarantee that the player would have bad! racist in mind when they encounter good! (?) racist Measurehead, who is an obstacle that you must pass to get further in the game. He's a bodyguard or mercenary or dock worker (it's not clear) employed by a communist-aligned union in their economy-crippling strike. When spoken to, Measurehead belittles the main character for being a degenerate specimen of an inferior race (the degenerate part is right), makes specific references to the history of haplogroups, makes specific references to the physiological differences between the races as they pertain to head shape, and is accompanied by a yes woman of an obviously different race who makes it clear at every opportunity that she lusts for Measurehead. Physically, Measurehead is exactly what a race-cuck (i.e. /interracial poster, someone who is into cuckoldry of specifically the black male variety) imagines black men to be except the game also seems to want us to believe he's vaguely smart as well. My problems off the bat are that it's extremely implausible in Disco Elysium's setting, which most likely does not have anything resembling the Internet, that Measurehead attained the specific scientific terminology he uses every sentence and even if he did have a means to acquire the terminology, it's just not how people talk. Even geneticists and anthropologists don't go around rambling about haplogroups when talking to laymen, it's clear that the developers are using the totally out-of-place scientific terminology as a substitute for smart or as a heavy-handed way to criticize the idea that racial differences could be scientifically understood (as Measurehead is also a weak strawman). There are a couple of ways to defeat Measurehead - 1) you can avoid him if you're good at lockpicking, 2) you can knock him out if you're strong enough, 3) you can submit to his worldview like a cuckold faggot. Only 2 is worth discussing. The problem with knocking Measurehead out is that the way the developers implemented it is fucking retarded. You attempt a sucker punch, which is a strength check and then are given two basic options to follow up, you either do a right hook or you do a jump hook kick to his head. Neither of these options involves a check. The first option, a power punch, invariably fails because although stunned measurehead catches it and crushes your hand even if you put every available point in strength. If you do the jump hook kick, which is retarded because it's established that at this point, your character is an out-of-shape mess that is recovering from a crippling hangover (and narcotics withdrawal), you get a free win and KO him. A man in the crowd, who claims to be a scab leader but is actually a PMC hired by the corporation being targeted by the strike, points out that your "flippy shit" wouldn't work in a real fight and that it only worked because Measurehead was surprised. When you come back, Measurehead has the cope that what you beat him in was an individual contest and that does not mean that your race is superior to his. The problem with this is that it's already established that Measurehead has correctly assessed that you are a sub-par example of your race and views himself (justifiably) to be an extremely high quality example of his race. The implication would have to inevitably be that Measurehead could not have lost such a contest against one such as yourself unless his race were inferior, unless you embrace the strikebreaker's cope that your attack only worked because of surprise. Later, when you need a body taken down from a tree (relating to your murder investigation) you can talk to him again, and he goes back on his own cope, referring to your attack as "race combat". I think it's clear that the devlopers want to simultaneously use this character to decry scientific understandings of the races while simultaneously asserting their own hopelessly cuckolded worldview that there is a moral distinction between the racists they hate and the ones they don't exactly like (which are defined along racial categories, white racists and black racists). The fact that knocking him out is an option at all is only an option because this is an RPG and they had to make the knock out method not be what would make sense given the circumstances, but something unexpected and inconsistent with the protagonist's abilities to preserve the superiority of Measurehead at the cost of the game's logical coherence. This is a character that is poorly conceived because of the cognitive dissonance inherit in the goals of the communists who made this game. They are capable of writing good characters, but they wrote this one in a manner subservient to their political objectives. I guess use this thread to rant about characters you think are poorly written and why that is the case.

ACTUALLY obscure vidya

I have never seen anyone talk about this game, ever. I am confident to say that this is one extremely obscure title, up until recently you could only get an ISO for it from some obscure russian emulation forum and from select private trackers. It was recently uploaded to CDRomance so now anyone can get their hands on it. Designed by Taro Kudo, of Love-de-Lic fame (Moon Remix RPG) and director of some not so good Paper Mario games. If you know anything about the people who were involved with Love-de-Lic, then you know how unique and special their games are (think Giftpia, Chibi-Robo, Chulip) It sold 9k copies during its first week in Japan, which doesn't sound like a lot.for an Enix published title and there is honestly little information about it online. This is from the Wikipedia page >The player takes on the role of a 5th-grade boy who is accidentally warped to a fictional island called Endonesia. The protagonist must communicate with the island's 50 sealed gods in order to return home. The boy does so by obtaining several abilities called Emo powers, which draw on his emotions, and the emotions of those around him. The game features day and night cycles as well as days of the week, with the island stuck in a 10-day time loop. I don't have a PS2 to test this game with and PCSX2 seems to behave oddly when I try it, some background are missing. Here's some gameplay footage, there are hardly any videos for it on Youtube. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=lilBe-ldJYU If any of you anons have a PS2 to test this game and can drop some footage, that would be appreciated. Take note, this is a text heavy game that remains untranslated. https://cdromance.com/ps2-iso/endonesia-japan/ Another extremely obscure set of titles are the Jungle Park games by Saru Brunei, developers best known for Cubivore on the Gamecube. These games, released on the Saturn and Playstation basically served as a sort of proto-Cubivore testing ground walking simulator. There might have been a Jungle Park title for the Bandai Pippin as well, which I don't believe was developed by Saru Brunei, can't find much on it.

/gameclub/ Thread - Legend of the Mystical Ninja

Welcome back to the gameclub, where the polls are absolutely not rigged and everyone has a fun time! >What's the /gameclub/? It's a thread where we play a game and talk about it. Try out something you might have never played, share your thoughts, compare scores, and have fun. GAME: We're playing Legend of the Mystical Ninja for the SNES! >The Legend of the Mystical Ninja, known as Ganbare Goemon: Yukihime Kyūshutsu Emaki in Japan, is an action-adventure game by Konami, and was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1991. It was also ported to the Game Boy Advance along with Ganbare Goemon 2: Kiteretsu Shōgun Magginesu only in Japan. >It is the first game in the Japanese video game series Goemon to have a western release. It has also been released for the Virtual Console in Japan, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States. In North America and Europe, this game was followed by two different games for Nintendo 64, Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon in 1998 and Goemon's Great Adventure (known in Europe as Mystical Ninja 2 Starring Goemon) in 1999, as all subsequent releases for the Super NES were absent of a Western release. In Europe, two Game Boy versions of Mystical Ninja starring Goemon were released. One was a standalone game and the other was part of Konami GB Collection Vol. 3. (via Wikipedia) >Goemon (Kid Ying) and Ebisu-Maru (Dr. Yang) are enjoying themselves at home when they hear about strange spirits sighted at the temple taking control of the other villagers. Concerned that a new evil has appeared, the two set out to confront it at the temple. This is just the beginning of a new adventure that will take them Goemon and his partner all across Japan; into mountain villages, amusement parks, castle fortresses and more! (via Moby Games) FUN FACT: One of the game's minigames is itself a full recreation of the first stage of Gradius.

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous

Game's coming out today, it's the "sequel" to Pathfinder: Kingmaker. It is set in the same universe, but it's a completely different adventure; at most we can expect a few returning characters and passing mentions to Kingmaker. According to beta testers and early reviews, WotR should be far less buggy on release than Kingmaker was, so I'm setting my expectations to mild disappointment instead of total failure. The game is centered around killing demons that are pouring out of some World Wound or some shit. You lead a crusade against the demon hordes. In a rather literal sense. Gone is the kingdom management from Kingmaker, you know recruit armies that run around putting down demons. Those army fights are more or less Heroes of Might and Magic 5 inspired battles, where your stacks move around on a square based grid. The whole crusade mechanic is reported to be the buggiest part of the game, most of the issues forcing a save reload. The other big gimmick of the game are the Mythic Paths, which empower you greatly in order to meet the demon forces in battle. The paths are: >Angel - for martial and divine casters, adds the typical holy/anti evil stuff >Aeon - neutral stuff for summoning, shape shifting, and a bit of martial stuff >Azata - chaotic path, for bards and support classes >Demon - evil path, has Rage powers like barbarians but doesn't stack, and lets you shape shift into demons; apparently the weakest path, but it's probably good for fighters >Lich - MOTHER FUCKING SKELETON CASTER HOLY SHIT YOU CAN RAISE YOUR OWN UNDEAD COMPANION AND EQUIP IT ANON WHY AREN'T YOU BONING THE DEMONS INTO SUBMISSION >Trickster - chaotic neutral dick ass thief meta, breaks the fourth wall, probably the fifth wall too, best for martial classes or illusion/enchantment casters >Gold Dragon - late game good path where you turn into a dragon >Swarm - late game chaotic evil path, transform into a host of insects, devour everything in your path, become the problem! >Devil - late game lawful evil path, fuck everyone else because it's all about you >Legend - late game path, fuck these outsiders, mortal might wins the day - your level cap is now 40 instead of 20 Late game paths weren't on the beta, so there's not much information about them. Paths have some alignment based restrictions, so your lawful good paladin can't become a demon or a devil. Most paths change your appearence. Only the MC gets to pick a path. There's mythic feats, that everyone in your party gets access to. There's fun stuff like drinking potions as a swift action or not automatically missing your attacks when you roll a 1, and generic shit like sneak attacks get +1d6. I'll try and find a link in a bit. So stay tuned for easy acquisition.
