Why do people like watch livestreams.

I've recently started streaming game dev to market my game dev work and I gotta say, while its fun I still dont get it from the viewers perspective. I mean if I already know the streamer personally its fun, but otherwise I dont really see the appeal. Is it really all just parasocial relationships and e-thots? Is that much of our society starved for social contact?

Monster Hunter

Old thread reached bump limit, so it's time for another Monster Hunter Thread. Let's hook up and play some Rise together. If you don't play Rise, talk about your favorite game is better than all the rest and how shit Rise is. How many of you caved and started playing GenU after Rise came out? Fuck, Kill, Marry, Enslave? Hinoa, Yomogi, Minoto, Rodine?

Average Linux Gaming Thread: Manjaro Is Still A Meme Edition

Didn't see one available, so here we go. Copy, Paste >What distro are you using? >Specs >Games you recently played >Wine or virtual machine? Other stuff >I'm interested in trying GNU/Linux, what should I start with? Linux Mint or Pop Os. These usually work with any computer you throw them at, if that computer meets the system requirements of course. This website should help with some more information: https://wiki.installgentoo.com/wiki/Babbies_First_Linux. >What are some interesting Linux operating systems to try at this time? If you want to get a version of Arch Linux up and running in as little time as possible, I think Endeavour Os is a good solution. Plus, it lets you choose what desktop environment to use during installation, if you have internet connection.

The Elder Scrolls VI: Hammerfell/High Rock/Daggerfall 2.0

What do we know about this? What innovations do you think Todd & His Minions will implement? I think it's not just going to be another Skyrim 2.0. I predict: >attributes will make a comeback, but uses the Skyrim leveling system >so every skill is associated with a certain attribute (maybe multiple) >for example every 5 skill increases in strenght-associated skills, will increase your strength attribute >Ass creed added more RPG systems, so that is "in" at the moment and just simply announcing "attributes will be back" will make their fanbase go hype as fuck >they will add classes in the sense that you can increase a few skills and attributes >ladders will still be impossible within the game engine >they are probably working on adding real dynamic ships in the game, but there is a good chance the engine is too retarded to add it and they will just forget about it, until someone discovers it in unused game files >good chance they might add a native optional survival system, with food/drink/rest needs as well as coverage/heat/cold for desert/snowy regions >since adding new gameplay is so difficult for them, they might tease the audience by adding a new Guild for them to join, either something based on the redguard/breton like Alik'r or a Guild based on Religion (like just generally the Eight Divines or something more specific than that) >as long as Todd is alive, he will probably not let anyone add distracting SJW elements to the game, he managed to prevent that in other games >you can probably combine certain spells, but instead of being revolutionary gameplay, you are just going to cross 2 beams to make a differently colored beam with a bit more damage

/GSG/ Grand Strategy Games

Any Anons from old 8/gsg/ around? I figured that with CKIII released playable, HOI IV having its first Genocide option and Emperor of the Fading Suns being released on GOG, we can revive this threads. So what are you currently >conqueran, annexan, vassalizan or colonizan? Did you figure out the perfect Borders for your country yet? How is your mod project coming along (i know you have an autistic idea that no mod fulfills)? And what about the eternal question: Is it better to have a big landmass country or having all the juicy world provinces in an dispersed empire only connected via Sea lanes? I will probably start with a new campaign of Darkest Hour soon. I usually get in the mood for this once or twice a year. Planing to use EoD mod for maximum Reichslarp (Mp4 related). Problem is i get pretty autistic for this. I have to make adjustments/changes in the files so that my perfect alternate history scenario is achievable, which is usually a pretty big task. War-games and 4X are also welcome here.

Castlevania-like Games

I'm suddenly in the mood for these sort of games. For the sake of a common definition I'm talking about any game that has the same look and feel as Castlevania, not that it necessarily has to be an action horror game or be monster themed.

Comfy towns and villages in vidya

What are some of the most comfy and relaxing places you've ever visited during a vidya adventure anon? A place where you can take your time as you buy items, plan your next move and chat with NPCs while you listen to some nice background music. My pick would be the Village of Beginnings from Digimon World 1. Coming back to that place after almost dying in some swamp is so relieving, not to mention how nice it feels to see the place grow after recruiting new digimons into the city

With the Windows games: Win3.1DosBox doesn't work, VirtualBox keeps crashing while installing the OS, and 86Box doesn't recognized any "fixed drives" when I use fdisk.

Sonic finally getting a new voice actor

Basically Roger Craig Smith announced that after ten years, SEGA gave him the axe. This leads me to believe that either they'll bring back Ryan/Jason for the adventure remake or they're going with Ben Schwartz who was the voice actor in the movie. Either way I'm thrilled since Roger was a terrible fit for Sonic and sounded more like a 40 year old man than a 16 year old hedgehog. Still it'd entirely possible that they'll fuck it up further by getting someone like Nolan North to be the new voice. Regardless I'm hoping the next move is to get rid of the writers from Colors. https://nichegamer.com/2021/01/28/roger-craig-smith-announces-he-is-no-longer-voicing-sonic-the-hedgehog-after-10-years/

Horror games which stop being horror games later down the line

I have a very specific itch that I'm looking to scratch and I was wondering whether or not you guys know any examples of this. I'm looking for a game, or a series of games where the main character goes through a horror situation but throughout it they become stronger and eventually the game moves from being horror to just straight up action. Death Space went close to this but unfortunately went and smashed its head against the wall with the third game due to EA's fuckery. There was an RPG maker series called Purgatory that did exactly that and I think Resident Evil also involves that to a certain extent. But do you know any other games that do that? But do that consciously?

Games with the "Sega racing" aesthetic

One of the things that I really like about early 3D games is that is seemed like the developers always made (Best that I can describe) extremely clean and simple looking games, that expressed a broad range of colors, that managed to be both extremely bright and dark when needed, and seemed to contain highly detailed textures that made the environments really stand out. However, it seems like only a minority of games used this aesthetic, with the most easily plentiful all being done by Sega for the racing games they made, particularly with Metropolis Street Racer being the best looking one. I was wondering if anyone knows of any non-Sega games that also managed to achieve this look.

Things in games that you HATE

Is there some common feature or mechanic that you hate? For me it's mini-maps. I HATE MINI-MAPS I love exploring, and when a game uses a mini-map it usually devolves into staring at the tiny mini-map and moving your character around instead of actually taking in the game world itself and exploring that. Which normally wouldn't be a problem, but game designers are often so fucking lazy that the only way to actually navigate to quest locations or find items in the game world is to use the markers on the mini-map. Have you noticed how few characters in games now actually give you directions to where you need to go? They don't say "head north to the old mill" or "follow the road east and take the bridge across the river", they'll just give a vague statement of "oh, it's over there" and then you're just supposed to follow your fucking little fucking GPS with its stupid glowing dots instead of actually navigating and pathfinding. Thankfully, some games allow you to turn off the mini-map. Which is great, in theory, but often those same games rely on the mini-map to provide said information, so you just have to turn it back on again if you want to see where you have to fucking go because nobody tells you anymore but that's extra dialogue that has to be recorded and those talentless hollywood celebs cost fucking money don't you know and there isn't budget for game design ''and** celebrities. I could go on and on about how much I hate mini-maps and Ubisoft in particular for how they fucked up open-world games which were supposed to be the most comfy immersive games ever but now they're just mini-map adventures with elaborate 3D HUDs taking up most of the screen. What do you hate anons? What drives you up the fucking walls?

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

Digimon games thread

Pokemon tends to stay the same but holy shit Digimon goes all over the fucking place. I loved Cyber Sleuth and plan to get the complete collection version because I never played the sequel and apparently it upgraded the first game to have all the fuckers they added in the second. You're going to come across EATER enemies in the first game pretty early so you should be looking for at least one mon with a piercing attack, you're also going to want to level up three poopmons into Platinum Sukemons and steal 9 Tactician USBs so you can insta-grind ya bois into infinity for endgame content, so do it ahead of time. Doesn't actually take as long as you think. I think the original adventure movies were trash but I think it's because life essentially ends for Japanese people when they leave school and become endless wage slaves due to japanese society. A lot of Japanese anime has that vibe lately because of all the fucking isekai/"hobo gets run over by bus and becomes overpowered" anime that's being released in the past decade, but when actually forced to tell a story that's not isekai it really shows how bleak society got over there. So aside from the absolute horribly fucked up existentialism, which is your favorite Digimon game, any recommendations?

Graphically, it's disappointing. I don't like the deformed characters and chibi shit in this case. I get they were going for 16-bit-but-3D or something, but it doesn't look good. That and the over-reliance on post-processing to add fucking bloom and depth-of-field and all this shit just...why. The framerate is shit too, with frequent stutters going in and out of battle. And it's not even 1080p. I don't know why they compromised resolution and framerate so hard to make something so fucking ugly. Music is at least tolerable, and there are some homages to traditional FF in here. The crystal music isn't identical but definitely similar, and the battle-start swipe is a nice touch. Parts of the translation are enjoyable but there is one character who talks like a faggot and his shit's all retarded, and that's Orpheus the bard. He even manages to not only use a meme but does so in the wrong context. It's fucking aggravating. I understand he's supposed to be a hateable character but you can make characters that are actually fun to hate and do so with writing that isn't intentionally rage-inducing. So despite all those problems, it's actually a decent traditional JRPG with a nice job system and some real potential to break the game in half if you know what you're doing with cross-class skills (all passives, once learned, can be equipped at any time regardless of job, but you only get so many slots to use). I'd say it's worth a play if you're the kind of anon with patrician taste who consideres FFV the best FF, but don't expect quite so much depth to the job system here as I'm not far enough into the game to say one way or another just how insane jobs and abilities get.

Caligula 2

I guess this thread was inevitable, so let's just get it over with. I need to vent for a bit about this shit. Caligula 2 had its official livestream earlier today, showing off a surprisingly substantial gameplay trailer and a brief demo. They say the livestream recording will remain up for about a couple of weeks, so feel free to download it if you want to keep it for study or whatever. The game's debut trailer from the latest Nintendo Direct a while back left the worst possible impression any game trailer ever gave me. It looked absolutely terrible and made me mad as fuck. But with the unexpectedly large info dump they just released today, including a more proper trailer, I decided to try my best to suppress my anger, minimize my bias for just one day and conduct an in-depth analysis of everything I've seen: First off, there's still a party of 4. Okay. Don't know what possible reason the Direct trailer had to leave that out, but the less I think about that trash fire, the better. The Risk level mechanic remains, and seems to work the same way as always. Maybe the meter goes down a little bit faster, but I could be wrong there. Out-of-party members (i.e. the ones you've benched) can passively gain a small amount of XP. On combat speed and space: The attacks themselves are decently fast, but the characters' running speed is embarrassingly sluggish to match the tiny combat instance confinement. Exact same problem Overdose had. Just a small, shitty circle with no variety. No corners, no chokepoints, nothing. The one thing that surprised me most by far is that enemies no longer immediately disintegrate on death like they did in Overdose. Their bodies stick around for a little while and continue to take hits, as you can see at 45:50 in the livestream recording. Although I can't tell whether or not the combo counter keeps going because they conveniently panned it out of frame. Looks like the world select screen will be the inside of a subway train. Seems to be just a cosmetic change, but either way, I would prefer having a bird's-eye view of the city, personally. Your top combo affects your battle end results (along with Risk Breaks), but you don't get a rank/grade letter. On field, some characters's names are blurred out. I assume it's a replacement for the lock icons they used to have in the first game that would indicate you can't befriend that individual yet. The game has multiple types of currency: ¥ (yen) and χ (chi). Looks like χ can be used to buy stigma/passives. There are consumable items (shown in combat UI), which I assume can be bought with ¥. There are also star icons you can collect, which I assume are skill points as in the first game. All of the UI looks like soulless cookie-cutter trash made in some sort of document software, same problem as Overdose. Maybe slightly less ugly though. Obviously, WIRE and the Causality Link are still present as always. All in all, having gone over all the details I could find, I'll admit C2 looks like it might not be completely terrible after all, but I certainly wouldn't call it good either. I'm seeing some unexpected improvements over Overdose, but the company's got a long way to go until they remember why the original Caligula was as good as it was. Do I still think Yamanaka is a sellout hack? Yes, certainly to some degree. I'm just not sure what degree that is at this point. He seems to be semi-aware of the problems that made Overdose fucking awful, so he decided to make some compromises in an attempt to please everyone. Of course, this type of half-assed design philosophy will never produce a game nearly as good as the original again, but as long as he's got retarded otaku giving him money for style over substance, he's got no incentive to improve. What do you guys think? Am I being too harsh, or not harsh enough? Feel free to discuss. Also, let me know if I missed anything. yewtu.be/watch?v=mEf9XajaW2s

I find that older anime games were actually good and not shovelware shit for the most part. Everything nowadays has to be a variant of the same thing, like anime arena fighters and anime musous.

Netflix Castlevania animated series final season premieres May 13

The upcoming 10-episode fourth season of Netflix’s anime series Castlevania will be its last, Deadline has learned. It will premiere May 13. While Castlevania, based on the classic Konami video game, will be coming to an end, the world it created may live on. Netflix is eyeing a new series set in the same Castlevania universe with an entirely new cast of characters likely based off Rondo of Blood. Additionally Netflix will be going forward with its adaptation of Devil May Cry. So /v/, how do you feel about Alucard getting fucked in the ass by Netflix all over again? https://archive.vn/JL6oS

Amazon's LotR MMO cancelled

https://archive.is/oqy79 >Talks with Tencent over development have broken down. >A report has detailed how contracted developer Athlon Games—a subsidiary of Leyou, which was acquired by Tencent—won't be moving forward with the game. Contract negotiations between Amazon and now-owner Tencent seem to have broken down, causing a dispute. >"We have been unable to secure terms to proceed with this title at this time," an Amazon spokesperson said. "We love the Lord of the Rings IP, and are disappointed that we won’t be bringing this game to customers,” they continued. >It looks like the Amazon-based team which had been collaborating on the game will be moved to other projects. It's not too surprising, given the nature of Amazon, which doesn't particularly play well with other megacorporations, and Tencent, which likes to have a finger in every pie. Add that to the troubled nature of Amazon Game Studios and this is pretty much what you get. There's not really much to the article. Amazon's attempts at breaking into the industry continue to fail.

Alternate worlds/Planets

What are some games which allow you to travel to different plantes and planes of existence that actually allow for some exploration of those planes and don't treat them just like another level to beat? It doesn't mean that the game can't be story based, merely that the areas which constitute the planets/planes are very open. There are two I can think off of myself: >Minecraft Minecraft allows you to travel to two different realms of existence in original, and has a shit ton of mods with different worlds, and has Galacticraft which allows you to travel to different planets. All of them are fully explorable because... well Minecraft. >Outer Wilds Several planets you need to explore to piece together a puzzle.

Yu-Gi-Oh/TCG Thread

Does anyone still fuck around with Yu-Gi-Oh or card games in general? The last Yu-Gi-Oh game I played was Legacy of the Duelists and it was ok. Konami updated it with Link Evolution that supposedly added every card to the date it the game was released but I haven't played that. Other than that the other card games I've played were Duel Links which was gacha shit that I quit. Hearthstone which was shit which I quit. And Shadowverse which was censored gacha shit which I quit. Never spent a dime on them. I don't see how people could enjoy that crap. I wish Konami would actually start putting more effort into their Yu-Gi-Oh games that isn't just a menu game. I miss the Tag Force games where you can roam around zones and duel certain NPCs to get certain cards and some Yu-Gi-Oh games had their own original story instead of retelling the anime. I've also thought about collecting cards again even though I stopped playing IRL. There's just something cool about having a big binder full of foil cards and some could even be rare enough to sell for a higher profit.

Binding of Isaac

I've started playing Binding of Isaac again for the first time in years, and it appears there's going to be a new expansion soon, to include the Antibirth content and much more, called Repentance. Did Edmund McShillun ever fix his mistakes with Afterbirth+? Stone fatties were fucking terrible, the new final boss was lazy as shit, and portals spawing stone fatties was horrible. I regret ever giving the faggot money, and vaguely recall distateful things about his person outside of making this game. If stone fatties are still in this new expansion, it won't even be worth pirating. The Binding of Isaac: Antibirth cheat sheet lists a couple items as bugged. Is this the case for the latest version of the mod, or is the cheet sheet out of date? The wiki also lists both of these items as unused, but it lists the psy fly as unused as well, while the cheet sheet does not. Antibirth is no longer being supported by the modders and the last blog post was in December 2017, promising an update. The modders are currently working on a new "final" official expansion to BoI.

Mercantilism, ho!

I've been really itching to play some games where making bank is the whole point. I already played Starsector to death it has been ages since it last updated and I am not fond of Recettear since I don't enjoy sitting on my ass pretending I work sales at a used car dealership. I much prefer the cycle of buying low, travel/explore/fight/whatever, then sell high. Planning trade routes is immensely more satisfying than waiting on RNG customers and the tedium of a day-based gameplay cycle. I liked Adventures to Go! since the protagonist understands the motivation of dungeoneering in the first place, but the game isn't hard at all and everyone throws money at you to the point you can't even lose your cash at the casino without trying. I've also tried that classic drug dealing text-based sim whose name I can't recall but it was very shallow--only good for an hour at most. I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel at this point so I'm even considering This Merchant Life, even though it's indie pixel shit and ticks off every item on the cancer checklist. At least it's only 200MB, thankfully. Please discuss games that let you channel your inner Mark. Bonus points if the games run on a potato. I tried getting into Anno 1404 but the installer from the one torrent I found freaked out on me.

NEW Games for OLD Consoles

DEADEUS: An horror game for the GameBoy, is now free to download from the official website https://izma.itch.io/deadeus Features some great sprite work and something like 11 endings, my only criticism is that despite some creepy pixel art, the game looks super deformed like the Zelda games so most of the time looks too "cute" to be able to evoke the eerie atmosphere the developer wanted. PAPRIUM: Remember this Mega Drive vaporware from the makers of Pier Solar? Apparently (after some drama involving the main developer) it did came out, and judging by the feedback seems like the game looks great graphically by the gameplay is shit, failing at being the "Streets of Rage 2 killer" they promised. I got a rom of it, but the main developer's autism for original hardware made the rom locked into a troll ugly mini game unless you play it on a real Mega Drive / Genesis (We'll have to wait for the hacking community to fix that shit) XENOCRISIS: Pretty cool game for the Mega Drive, an alien survival that looks great but it's pretty tough, it was clearly a type of game meant to be played with dual analog sticks ala "Dead Nation" so playing it with a Mega Drive controller, especially the 3 button one can make things annoying since you need to move and aim at the same time.

Fan Made Expansions

There's a lot of mods made for various video games, but what about mods so big they qualify as a full expansion, if not a new game entirely? Skyrim: Home of the Nords is a new lands mod for Morrowind that adds western Skyrim to the game. This isn't a port of the 2011 game's landmass, but rather an original imagining of what the province looked like in pre-Oblivion lore, taking into account books both in and out of universe (Pocket Guide to the Empire), dialog, and even the two phone games set (Dawnstar and Shadowkey) at least partially in Skyrim. I've hit 30 hours of gameplay (using a speed rebalancer, so even more on vanilla), finishing two of the major questlines (Mages Guild and bounties) with several left (Fighter's Guild and a Thief's Guild questline my character can't do because of conflicts with the bounty quest series), and my character only ever left Skyrim briefly to grab a few things only found in Morrowind for a quest. This mod is one of a few, connected, landmasses that uses the Tamriel Data asset pack. The first, and by far the most famous, user is Tamriel Rebuilt (pics 2, 3, 4), which has remade the entire eastern part of mainland Morrowind, complete with quests. Its development has been going for two decades and shows no signs of slowing down. The quests in these two areas are fairly well done as far as Morrowind goes, with interesting stories and (unlike the original game, which rarely gave meaningful rewards outside of late guild quests) actually interesting rewards . A third project Province: Cyrodiil (pic 5 is an older version of the planned release map) also exists and is currently prepping for its first true release (there's a demo with just the island of Stirk, but it wasn't quite finished and is frankly not worth bothering with yet) that could (but is not likely to) come out this year.

Retro gaming thread

I have no idea how to make an OP Games released on or prior to 2000 Currently I'm going through old NES games and it gets me how they just throw you into the game and expect you to figure stuff out. It's nice to be treated with a basic level of intellect, even if most NES games were garbage. At the moment I'm playing Ghosts 'N Goblins, it's fun but I'm not looking forward to the whole fake out at the end where you have to play the game again.

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.

Musical similarities in vidya

I was listening to this song https://yewtu.be/watch?v=CRvRyfEu1yY And then around 1:00 it struck me, Duster's theme from MOTHER 3 sounds awfully similar to this. This song was released in 2004 and M3 came out in 2006, so it probably is the other way around. Then there's I Ching by Ataraxia (Mort Garson) which must have been the inspiration for the Fairy Fountain theme from TLOZ ALttP and it wouldn't be the first time that Garson was plagiarized by Koji Kondo (Plantasia is basically the OoT soundtrack before OoT, Concerto for Philodendron and Pothos particularly) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPjvp5u0UN8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7DLo51KQ8U pic unrelated

GAMES THAT SUIT YOUR PLAY-STYLE

Action adventure RPGs are hard to balance, especially when they try to do the trifecta of Warrior/Rogue/Wizard and balance them all accordingly. I'm playing Kingdoms of Amalur at the moment and I've noticed some fucking retarded balance and design decisions (such as skills have a set damage that doesn't scale with level but enemies do, meaning your skills become less useful over time), but it's got me wondering about games that got it right. What's a game that absolutely nailed one of those three play-styles? Something where being a glass-cannon mage was actually tricky but felt rewarding, or where being an armoured tank was satisfying as fuck as you wade through hordes? Or where being a stealthy backstabbing cunt that steals everything through deceit and trickery, which IMO is the hardest to do in a game that wasn't specifically designed around that play-style (talking regular AA/RPG here, not actual stealth games like MGS or Splinter Cell).

But seriously, I need some games where I play as something not human, preferably hunting down humans. I made this topic because I caught wind of Second Extinction, and got fucking enraged that they spend so much time making awesome looking mutant dinosaur monsters, but make you play as generic ass soldiers. I don't wanna play as the generic ass soldiers, I want to tear them apart.

Games you wish you could experience for the first time again

We all have those games we think about from time to time. The thought of "man I wish I could enjoy those for the first time once more". How about we pick 5 games? Post those games that you loved so much you wish you could experience for the first time again and give a reason why. >Tales of Vesperia Has my favorite cast of characters in a JRPG. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the music. Out of all the Tales games it's also the most aesthetically pleasing. The graphics are even better than Tales games that released afterwards. I'm glad I got to play the definitive edition which had content I haven't played before. >Yakuza 0 Admittedly my introduction to the Yakuza series. After playing most of the others I can say this by far has the best combat and a top notch story. A lot of people would probably say it has the best story but for me personally I like Yakuza 4's story a lot. Yakuza 0 also has some of the best mini-games and substories. >Yakuza 4 As I mentioned it's probably my favorite story in the series. Honestly a bigger train ride than Yakuza 0. Akiyama and Saejima grew on me right away, already love those characters. I also loved how the game redeemed Hamazaki. I won't get into spoiling that but I thought it was bittersweet. There damn sure were some emotional moments in this game that felt different from the other Yakuza games. >Red Dead Redemption The best Rockstar game no arguments. I never thought I'd love a western setting in a video game until I played this. Loved the story and John Marston as a character. And the moments in the game like entering Mexico for the first time, it was perfect. >Dragon's Dogma The only RPG I've played that really felt like you were going on an adventure. Has the best music and my favorite combat of any RPG. Going on the journey to Bluemoon Tower and slaying the Griffin for the first time will forever be one of my favorite moments in this game.

RimWorld and Dwarf Fortress

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.

Synthetik 2 confirmed for this year

Not sure if anyone saw the news, but Synthetik 2 was just announced by the developers. Personally I wasn't too fond of the game with roguelikes being a bit too random for my taste, but I see the appeal and I know a bunch of people here liked the original. Seems like they're going for a different camera perspective though, so some people may feel iffy about it. Either way I figured this was worth making a thread about due to the game being a well known hidden gem.

Fantasy Games in which you play as monster

Are there any fantasy games where you play as a race which are most commonly the monsters? Most fantasy games follow the formula of the good guys you play as being shinning clean knights with medieval european aesthetic and the things you kill being filthy club weilding brutes in loincloths Is there any game where you do the reverse? Play AS the club weilding brute? I dont mean games where there is like one orc option in the character creator or one proud warrior race guy in the party In fact since orcs are pretty widespread and playing as an orc is pretty easy thats not what Im looking for And I dont want games were you play as a human barbarian either Specific types of monsters I am intrested in are all types of Beastmen (Gnolls, Wolfmen, Ratmen, Lizardmen you name it) more barbaric demons, kobolts and generally anything else that has this whole bugbear-esque "thing that lives in a hut in the forrest" vibe to it Monsters I dont give a fuck for : skeletons, vampires, zombies, eldritch shit, the generally more mystical ones Being a primitive tribal/animalistic monster is as important to what I am looking for as being a monster at all To clarify even more What my fantasy is Its NOT "I wanna play as a fantasy dark lord" Its NOT "I wanna play as the evil faction" It IS "I wanna play like the low level monster, the first boss in a dnd-campaign, the big brutish creature with the morningstar" Playing as either a villain or hero isnt important to me. It could be full on good monsters with the orderfag kingdom being evil or fantasy Postal In fact the afformentioned clean cut shining armor humans/elves/generic good fantasy kingdom being the antagonist isnt even that important, it could be completely abscent, the enemies could be monsters too

The Best Games Of The 2010's

Since the end of 2020 I wanted to make a list of the best games that came out throughout the decade to celebrate the non-shit games that came out much like diamonds in a sea of shit and colossal fucking disasters. A chart much like the charts from the chart thread would be the perfect way of going about it but I would also like input from the rest of you guys when it comes to what to add or remove to the list, especially due to the fact that I also missed out of plenty of games and ignore specific genres that don't appeal to me which could also have genuinely good games. Something like this oughta bring us all together and see what good game out of the industry out of the worst possible times, although it may not be the best, good shit still comes out every once in a while and they deserve attention from the anons who write off all games after 2010 as shit don't ya think? People may just shit on specific games that they may not agree on but just like with the other lists we should come to a consensus.

Pokemon Thread

Why has this series seemingly downgraded over the years despite being one of Nintendo's biggest IPs, next to Mario and Zelda? I'd honestly rather play Diamond and Pearl over Sword and Shield and I'm unironically saying that. It seems like X/Y was the beginning of the downfall in the series. Mega evolutions? Alolan forms? Gigantamax? Who the fuck asked for this shit? I'd rather have all the old side-content like hideouts, spelunking, Pokemon fashion contest, and shit like that than trying to reinvent the wheel.

Diablo 2: Resurrected early impressions

Since there seems to be some gameplay of it out now, any thoughts? I'm watching Botan a vtuber playing it and it seems alright. I'm usually the jaded type but it doesn't scream disaster like Reforged did. That could change when the actual game comes out for now I'm on the cautiously optimistic side with emphasis on the optimistic. It's helmed by a different team so there is a chance that it will be decent at the least.

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.

Higher end vidya recommendations

welcome faggots I just recently got a upgrade for all of my parts, having gotten a hand-me-down toaster in 2014 I actually was able to buy a new PC which is comparably miles beyond what I originally had with: I7 core 10700 Processor 2.9ghz RTX 3060 12g 32G DDR4 1T SSD I was hoping I could get some recommendations, if any, from anons regarding what the fuck I can now run with this thing as I am obviously a late bloomer when it comes to parts and settings for games. So far I have ran M&B Bannerlord at max everything with no issue and as fun as that is it gets boring after a long session so I was curious if there are any other worthwhile graphically demanding games out there I am otherwise unaware of. pic unrelated

Controller troubles on PC

I've been having this issue for a while on PC and figured out was just a quirk on my hardware but now my friend is reporting the same issue. When using a controller over USB wirelessly (either using the Xbox wireless dongle for a Xbone controller or a Bluetooth dongle for a Dualshock 4) the controller randomly ghost inputs, not registering that I've pressed a button, or it will register that I've pressed it twice. My friend is now reporting the same issues. We've tried disabling power saving mode on USB devices in Windows 10 but it's still happening, just not as much. Anyone else has these fucking problems?

Puzzle / Minigames

What are you favourite puzzle games, minigames or other comfy relaxing games that don't really fall in other categories? Doesn't need to be about "puzzling" could also be some nice fishing game or stuff like that. Like pic related, Kuru Kuru Kururin is apparently a puzzle game, not really imo but it's fun either way. Dunno stuff you play to kill 15-20min.

Vidya decisions that haven't been made due to stupid reasons

What comes to mind? I've been playing Tekken 7 recently after playing some Yakuza games and realized Kiryu would fit perfectly in this game. Like it was made to have him as a guest character. Wanna know the reason why that hasn't been done? Because the creator can't fathom Kiryu hitting women, even if they are fictional.

Phantasy Star Online

We're on our 5th game of 8Moe's Bizarre MMOdventure. Previously playing Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine. Here is a link to the server. https://ephinea.pioneer2.net/ After you register and download, follow the instructions on the site. If you have problems getting the game to launch read the readme that is placed on your desktop after installing. There's also these links. https://www.pioneer2.net/community/threads/new-to-game-installing-for-first-time-read-this.6417/ https://www.pioneer2.net/community/threads/linux-tutorial-for-playing-psobb-on-ephinea.9712/ Getting this game to work might seem like a hassle but all I had to do was #3 in the readme and whitelist the EphineaPSOBB folder in the antivirus protection. Make sure you resize your resolution but there could be problems with this like crashing. You can actually get in the game as it is and resize the window, or the highest you can do is 1024x768 as an anon said for him in the previous thread. Once you're in the game and select servers go to U.S Auldrant and Block 1. Drop your in-game names in the thread.

GTA III and Vice City Reverse Engineered, Released with Improvements

https://github.com/GTAmodding/re3 >In this repository you'll find the fully reversed source code for GTA III (master branch) and GTA VC (miami branch). It has been tested and works on Windows, Linux and FreeBSD, on x86, amd64, arm and arm64. Rendering is handled either by original RenderWare (D3D8) or the reimplementation librw (D3D9, OpenGL 2.1 or above, OpenGL ES 2.0 or above). Audio is done with MSS (using dlls from original GTA) or OpenAL. The project has also been ported to the Nintendo Switch, Playstation Vita and Nintendo Wii U. re3 requires PC game assets to work, so you must own a copy of GTA III. We have implemented a number of changes and improvements to the original game. They can be configured in core/config.h. Some of them can be toggled at runtime, some cannot. The improvements listed include >Bug fixes >Storing save files in the root directory >Rotatable camera >No loading screens between islands >Xinput support >Widescreen support >PS2 graphical additions (particles, vehicle reflections, transparency) >Xbox graphical additions (vehicle rendering, lighting, rain droplets) It's not finished yet and they have a list of shit to do since it just released a few days ago but it's looking nice so far. How long do you think it'll last before R* shoahs it?

Graphical "updates" to older games

I was wondering why it is that people don't really attempt to really discuss and compare how the "same game" keeps changing in details whenever they bring them to newer systems. Most of the time, when this discussion arises, it's usually in reference to recent remakes/remasters, typically with a critical tone. However, I was wondering why there isn't much discussion in regards to games that have already been on the market for years. Especially ones where it seems like you really have to do some "deep research" to find out what's the difference between the system versions of the games.

The "you made one of the biggest gaming mistakes of your life but you deserve it because everyone warned you" thread.

So that's it, no long copypasted faggotry. Just tell when you made one of the biggest gaming mistakes of your life, but you deserve any shit you get because you were warned over and over. In my case I bought the wwe 2k20 deluxe edition from a discount bin, and the worst thing wasn't the game breaking bugs, which were many even a year after release, nor were the shitty ps2 graphics. Oh no, it was the fucking Career mode. You play as your self insert bara or whatever you make as a character and your waifu, but in the first minute they turn your 8 feet tall giant into a massive cuck faggot and your waifu into a massive, unlikeable bitch who ruins your life, yet you have to kiss her ass all the time because "women empowerment". I'm probably in the middle of the story and your male character is mocked, punked, oneshot and made a fool of himself even if you actually beat your opponents into a pulp while you still have the green lifebars, meanwhile your bitch waifu monks you, belittle you in front of others, expect you to do all the work and demands all your support while giving you none. It's a fucking highschool drama with a wrestling touch, and writers must have not grown out of highschool or they are women because the only way to empower your female character is to drag your male character down. I mean, it has been a while and the wwe games have some experience in ruining your experience by unfairly oneshot you even if you win with all the merits, but this time it got to a new fucking offensive level and I don't even want to play the career anymore nor have the will to do some fun roleplaying like changing costumes the more you advance in the career or add scars depending of the wounds you get in your story, but not this time because they won't even let blood come out even if you have the option on. It's just a drag to unlock some shitty costumes and wrestlers and get experience points for the online fights which are the only thing relevant left I guess. Fuck 2k, fuck everything and fuck me for buying this piece of crap because I couldn't wait a few months for another wrestling game that isn't fucking wwe even if I was warned over and over.

"Gamers" boycott Genshin Impact for Racism and Pedophilia

https://archive.ph/KUsKD They didn't raise an uproar when they censored Hong Kong and Taiwan in multiplayer chat but now they're boycotting the game because it didn't make 2 dark characters dark enough and made a the race, the Hilichurls, "The primitive wandering inhabitants of Teyvat's wildernesses. They look very similar to humanity but seem to have lost both their intellect and spirituality. Their presence on the continent has been recorded for over a thousand years, and yet they have neither history nor civilization. "Since the pitch-black calamity from five hundred years ago, they have begun to spread in large numbers across the land. They are not very strong, and they lack organization, but they nonetheless bring sizable trouble to humans every once in a while." There's also a confession to a child NPC accused of pedophilia which seems like just a mistake since they were an adult in the beta but the line wasn't updated when they were changed to a child. I would like it to work because I don't like the game personally but it's a free-to-play game. I think free-to-play games are immune to standard boycotts. They made $1 billion on mobile alone in six months just recently. If riot games can get away with farting in their employee's mouth, what makes anyone think this boycott has any legs to stand on? Also, these "gamers" seem like journo buddies to me since their accusations are progressive left 101. They'll forget about with next controversy next week. I haven't heard about #freemelee in a while so this will probably be similar in uproar.

Nintendo brings the salt again with Animal Crossing and Sanrio Amiibo Cards

Stock gone in less than 30 seconds. People who pre-order got their pre-orders cancelled because a ton of early buyers and bots got to it, even though it clearly said that they would limit 2 to a customer. I'm sure there are going to be many who pull the "It's Nintendo's fault for not making enough" or "They would sell more if they made it digital and not limited physical copies" or whatever but this seems more like a store problem which they should've learned with PS5 and Xbox Series X and any top-of-the-line graphics card. Blame the stores for not setting a limit on pre-orders, setting aside actual number of items to match those pre-order and renigging on pre-orders because demand was higher than the amount of pre-orders they took in. Blame the stores for not following the rules of 2 per customer. Stores got into trouble for breaking release date so they don't get a pass for breaking rules enforced upon them. Blame stores for allowing employees to back sell highly popular items. And most of all, put protections on websites so that bots can't be stealing items to resell on ebay. I think this is pretty simple but I know this shit will happen again and the usual blame game starts over.

Lord of the Worldbox

Some time ago I have been making Galimulator threads on /v/ and was thinking of doing another one, due to lowered pph though I'm not sure if Galimulator would work, so let's test the grounds with a simpler game as of right now. >What is Worldbox? Another God simulator game, this time with a fantasy theme, nowhere near complex as Galimulator, but fun enough to fuck around with. >Why not Galimulator? Because setting up Galimulator takes a lot of time, and I will want to make a Galimulator thread eventually, but I want to test the grounds first. >What is this even? Just like in Galimulator threads, we are going to create a world, and make a couple of countries. In here the countries are far simpler than before. I can also try to create different or dangers in the world on different islands. Then, we're going to see what exactly happens when those countries clash against each other and if it will be interesting or not. >What do I do? You tell me what exactly to put on each number of the map. It doesn't have to be a country, if you want I can just fill the island with undead and put some resources there so that the countries have something to fight over. As far as creation of the country goes I will need: >The race of the kingdom (Humans, elves, orks, dwarves) >A name for the kingdom >A name for the Capital >A name for the king I will try make the king immortal Be wary that kingdoms can be only created on fertile ground, so if you want to put your kingdom in a desert, I will have to change the environment a bit. Dubs decide what manner of horrible (or wonderful things) happen to the world.

This has to be the strangest series I've ever completed. Not because of it being over the top but it's identity issues it's had since the PS3 era. Then somehow fixed them during 0 and the remakes only to end up believing they were a game series known for being over the top and whacky. With the next 3 games they released. Why is Kiwami the originals and 0 the only tonally enjoyable games in this entire series? Those 3 plus original 2 were enough to trick me into believing the game was focused primarily on combat call me crazy but I swear 2 on the ps2 was a lot more fluid and reactive than the ps3 titles. Whether it's because the new engine could never be figured out until 5 or they wanted to focus on the games being movie games at that point I cant ever tell. Especially when the stories are all nothing notable except for 1 which was your basic retribution revenge plot nothing more going on outside of Nishiki being enjoyable to watch devolve. Yakuza really is a series that the fans undersell by calling it a game focused on the side activities and stories. Especially when Kiwami was such a nice mix of arcadey combat and execution with the way heat moves were executed requiring positioning and specific prerequisites rather than just tapping triaangle on whatever downed enemy you saw. Side activities werent even prevalent until 5 implying everyone who insists that's the sellling point only ever joined around 5 and never decided to play any of the other games. 6, Judgement and 7 all feel over the top and tryhard making the game pure eye candy (which it isnt when a lot of the essense moves are boring or reddit tier trying to be funny) without any substance or good use of the combat until the latter half of the game which is fun sure but repetitive. What a strange use of 350 hours of my life. I seriously should have left it at Kiwami 0 and 2 once I played through 3 and realized the combat was never the central focus for these games anymore.

The more equipped each nazi is the more likely he is to be found, but they can also give UG equipment to locals to trick the UG. Diplomacy is possible but extremely hard as the diplomats have a tendency to bullshit >as time goes on the UG gets more and better equipment, forcing the nazis to rush >nazi ending is a huge medieval party with a shitty hitler statue, UG ending is just old men in a room

METROID Thread

I know i am late, but i just finished pic related and damn was it a good game, the developers definitely knew what were doing, from the remade areas to the new ones they made a superb job. I haven't played Samus returns as i don't have a 3ds, but i watched the gameplay and i don't like how everything was too bright and colorful, killing all the creepy and dark atmosphere the original had, it looks way too "cartoony" for my tastes. Also the queen metroid wasn't as creepy as the one in AM2R, which was much better in every regard, queen looks, area she was in, and boss fight itself with her remains staying there after you blow her with the power bomb, awesome. Another thing i really appreciated was how satisfying shooting the enemies was, especially with the ice beam, seeing them freeze and then crash in pieces after falling on the ground was just great. That's one thing i think Metroid in general lacks, in M1, M2, Super and Fusion you shoot the enemy slowing it down, then it blinks and just disappears, kinda disappointing if you ask me, It would be cooler and more satisfying it the enemies reacted more like the Metal Slug enemies at your attacks, meaning squirting blood (slime) as you shoot them and then blowing up in pieces releasing slime when you kill them, kinda like the Mars People in Metal Slug. So yeah, Metroid general i guess.

Translation of Famitsu Interview with Fumihiko Yasuda of Team Ninja

From the Ninja Gaiden Subreddit. <"I was getting frustrated by the misinformation stemming from Team Ninja's abysmal communication with its PR teams, as well as some of the misinformation stemming from a "translation" of this interview that was going around here (which wasn't a translation of excerpts from the actual interview, but a translation of bullet points written by a blogger who read the interview). So, since I live in Japan and know Japanese, I went out and bought the magazine and did a quick translation of the full interview. I hope this gives fans a clearer picture of this release and the circumstances surrounding this franchise. What I consider to be the most important/interesting information is in bold." Q: The Master Collection marks the first entry in the Ninja Gaiden series in 9 years since NG3RE. How do you feel now that this announcement has been made? A: Although they’re ports, I’m happy about it. I feel really sorry about making fans wait for so long. I was really surprised by how big the reaction was to the announcement — it exceeded my expectations Q: What led to the decision to port these three titles, and what do you hope to accomplish with this collection? A: The Ninja Gaiden series, along with the Dead or Alive series, is a flagship title for Team Ninja. However, we haven’t been able to release a Ninja Gaiden title on the generation of consoles that includes the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. This bothered me, and so I started the development [of this collection] just after we finished working on Nioh 2. This is the first PC release of the series, so we will be able to reach even more players. Also, we have new members of Team Ninja who grew up playing Ninja Gaiden, so I wanted to give them the chance to interact with Ninja Gaiden as developers. Q: With regard to the titles in this collection, as a fan, I’m pleased by the decision to include 3RE over NG3. A: 3 was the first title I worked on as director, and so I have a lot of memories working on it. But yeah, 3RE is definitely the one. [laughs] Q: Sorry about that. [laughs] The first two titles are the Sigma versions. What is the reason for this? >A: To put it simply, they are the final versions, so that’s why we picked them. There is a lot of additional content, including additional playable characters. They also include content from the Vita Sigma Plus games, as well as other aspects that we weren’t able to fully optimize at the time, and so we are making thorough adjustments this time. >Q: As you probably know, there are fans who prefer BLACK and NG2. >A: Yes, I understand this is a controversial topic. 2 was the first title I worked on as a developer, so it’s important to me. But one reason we picked [Sigma] is because the data from that time is fragmented and in such a state that we wouldn’t be able to salvage it even if we tried. However, when we developed Sigma Plus and Sigma 2 Plus, we gathered and organized as much of that data as possible, which is another reason why we went with Sigma. Q: This collection is a port, so does that mean it isn’t a remaster? >A: The assets are generally the same, but the games support Full HD and 4K with stable, improved frame rates. There won’t be a drastic leap in visual fidelity, but they are remastered titles optimized for each hardware. For the PC version, there is no mouse and keyboard support and it will only be playable with a controller. >Q: Did you make any adjustments to game balance? >A: We are fixing some bugs and some unreasonable aspects of the games, but we are generally taking a hands-off approach. Hero Mode, which was introduced in 3, will be added to Sigma and Sigma 2. There were a lot of players who found the games too difficult and had trouble enjoying them, so I think this will allow players who aren’t good at action games to finish all 3 titles. We’ve also adjusted the difficulty of the tag missions to allow players to finish them by themselves. Q: I’m happy to hear that. Are the depictions of violence also based on Sigma? >A: Yes. The depictions of violence remain the same. The Version D for Nintendo Switch contains adjustments only for 3RE. We did this because we thought Switch users aren’t fond of gore. We did this to allow as many players as possible to enjoy the games. <\This is where the interviewer should have followed up to confirm whether Yasuda meant the depictions of violence are the same as Sigma Plus, but unfortunately, that didn’t happen.* Q: The way you cut through bones is very grotesque. [laughs] The original versions supported online play, but these don’t, is that correct? >A: Unfortunately, this collection doesn’t support online play. I understand there are players who thoroughly enjoyed the co-op play, but the honest answer is that, because this includes three titles, we had to cut this out due to scheduling and business considerations. If we were to incorporate co-op play, the required labor would be comparable to that of working on a new title. However, other online functionalities, such as time attack rankings, will be supported. Q: So players will compete with each other in the single player modes. In Sigma, you could do various things by shaking the controller. For example, you could power up ninpo or make the girls’ boobs jiggle. A: Those were features unique to the Playstation 3 and its gyro sensor. Those were for Playstation 3, which is why they aren’t included in the collection. The ninpo will be powered up from the start. As for the boob jiggle mechanics, players who want to enjoy that can help themselves to those Venus Vacation games. [laughs] Q: But Rachel isn’t in those games…. [laughs] Speaking of Rachel, she had a pretty weak impression in Sigma. Did you buff her or make her easier to use this time around? A: No, she remains the same as in Sigma. She is power-oriented character, so although I understand she isn’t as agile, that’s part of her appeal. Momiji and Ayane from Sigma 2 also remain the same. Q: Do you have any advice for new players to the series? A: First, learn to guard. If you don’t, you will die very quickly. [laughs] However, this series has incredibly responsive controls, and so if you can master the controls, you can make Ryu Hayabusa fight in any way you please. Please enjoy the game while learning each and every action. There is also a rich variety of weapons at your disposal in all 3 games, so look for a weapon that suits you. If you aren’t good at action games, I recommend the hero mode. Q: From your perspective, how do you regard each of these titles? >A: I wasn’t involved in the first game, but I heard its development was inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. This might sound ludicrous, but there were apparently plans to even include fishing mechanics. [laughs] In the end, it became action-oriented, but you can still see the influence in the puzzles, jumping actions, and exploration elements. Q: I want to see Ryu fishing. [laughs] A: It might happen someday. [laughs] 2 featured a lot of dismemberment and obliteration techniques, making it an even more action-oriented game. As for 3, although it had its ups and downs, with 3RE we updated the mechanics and made it a more balanced, comprehensive title. What I can say about all three titles is that enemies are coming to kill you. They are tough. Q: Yeah, one could consider the Ninja Gaiden games as one of the first masochistic games. A: The sense of accomplishment you get from overcoming a challenge after numerous attempts is something we also incorporated in Nioh. When I look at [Ninja Gaiden] now, I’m shocked by the game’s speed and how it pulls you along. But that’s the appeal of these games.

Devil May Cry Thread

Hey /v/, so I'm unsure if you've realized but Devil May Cry has a 20th anniversary next year. The original game was released on August 23rd 2001. Anyway as you know despite it's rocky history, Devil May Cry is still one of Capcom's biggest game franchises. So while I'm not expecting a full blown Devil May Cry 6, I do wonder if we'll get that special edition everyone and their mom has been asking Capcom for ever since DMC5 released without a playable Vergil. Either that or a younger team at capcom will be reassigned to remake DMC1 with DMC5's engine and mechanics, which I'd be kinda okay with. Either way I'm sure we'll get some kinda promotion to go along with the 20th Anniversary, and with that out of the way let's get to the important questions. >FAVORITE GAME >FAVORITE DEVIL ARM >FAVORITE GUN >FAVORITE STYLE >FAVORITE CHARACTER >WOULD YOU GO GAY FOR DANTE?

WURM UNLIMITED

IT'S WURM TIME (soon™) Serb goes live April 2nd, sometime in the afternoon/evening EST. Hostfag/badmins/mapfags are a combination of the lads who've done the past 4-5 serbs working together. Will post more info (probably in a new thread) on the day of the launch, in the meantime here's some previews. Stuff like the rates and spawns/mods/configs are still able to be changed, but the map is locked in for better or worse. Pastebin with info and stuffs to come later. RATES: 3x/4x SIZE: 4k niggers FACTIONS: MR for 8/v/ remnants and webring friends, HOTS is the usual suspects, JK is a wildcard and freedom is for literal madmen wanting to hermit. The theme for this serb is "high magic" and we're trying lots of things to keep wurm fresh and interesting. Priest restrictions are still on, but faith gains are accelerated and channeling skill should be much faster and easier to grind. Bountymod/burning bodies gives 10x the amount of karma it does normally and sorcery tomes are plentiful but still a trial to get. The idea is that everyone will be able to use a little magic, but you can't be certain exactly what anyone else is using either. Currently the badmin team is hard at work putting together lots of dungeons and events and things to be discovered in the world. More info to come in posts to follow.

Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) and RTS have announced they have acquired the Evolution Championship Series (EVO) fighting game tournaments. As you may know, EVO 2020 was canceled due to Mr. Wizard --fucking with the low tier god-- having sex with little children and taking advantage of them. Now with Wizard resigning and the administration basically in shambles, Sony has decided to buy out the EVO name and make it part of their company. Honestly I'm not sure who has the worst core values, Sony or Wizard but either way we can all say it's an end of an era.

"I may not have known who he was during his life, but I do know it took courage to do what he did. He was last seen visiting his friend Boogie's house and thats the only place he could be. Knowing this, we sent agent after agent to investigate that hell hole. However, every time we sent a cop to that house, they would not return. We have decided to suspend searching for Angry Joe as a result. We would like to thank his fan and his family for their patience." >"It's just not fair", Yong Yes said in an exclusive interview. "I auditioned multiple times to voice characters in Cyperpunk 2077 and my application never went through. Asian hate has to stop." >We also reached out to one of Angry Joe's best friends - Boogie2998 for a comment regarding his disappearance. >"Say what you want about the guy, he was still one of the best meals I've ever had. The hardest part was that enormous head though." When asked to clarify what he was trying to imply with this statement, Boogie demanded we leave his house or else we would suffer the same fate.

Games where it's a mess to figure out which version is the "best" to play

So, I've been meaning to get into a lot of older games, and I've had the fun time of trying to figure out the most optimal way to play them. One recent example I've trying to figure out is Metal Gear series. Using that as an example, from what I can find out, here's the "best" version of the games: >Metal Gear (2) <Play the original MSX2 games because every release afterwards drastically alters content >Metal Gear Solid For the "original" experience: <Get Integral For the "complete" experience: <Get VR Missions on the PS1 and Twin Snakes on the GC >Metal Gear Solid 2 It doesn't matter unless you want to skateboard, then... <Get Subsistence >Metal Gear Solid 3 It doesn't matter unless you want to play the "Snake vs. Monkey" game mode, then... <Get Subsistence in the PS2 Another example that comes to mind is the Lunar series where, the original two games on the Sega CD are literally completely different games compared to their remakes, and the "definitive" version of the remake ends up being the PSP version Silver Star Harmony. Then, there's also series like XZR, where it the sequel (XZR2) was released on Japanese computers, BUT XZR2 also has a remake called Exile for the PCE-CD/Sega-CD that continues the story (While XZR2 just ends it) and finishes it with Exile II. Any other game series that require this much autism to track which versions "should" be played over the other releases? I'm also counting rereleases because, for example, I picked up a copy of Contra 4 in order to play the original Contra because FUCK VALVE/NINTENDO/SONY/M$/KONAMI, I WILL NOT BY A SWISH/XBONE/PissPour; and the only other way to acquire the original Contra (Outside of the original game cart) was to acquire the Konami Classics Series on the DS, but it doesn't have Super C like Contra 4 does.

Hack & Slash Games

They're one of my favorite types of games because they're able to satisfy my autism in ways that no other genre can. I love testing out the various weapons and abilities these games typically have. Western or Eastern, good or bad, interesting or bland, let's talk about and recommend them. I'll start off by talking about one of the best hack and slash games ever made, Severance: Blade of Darkness. I won't deny that the game is hard to get into. It's a little jank. You can also screw yourself over and get "softlocked" by not properly managing your resources, healing items, and by playing poorly. But if this game hooks you in, it hooks hard. First of all, the atmosphere in this game is amazing. It puts a lot of modern games to shame. The combat has inputs similar to that of a fighting game. Plus, you can cut off limbs and hit enemies with them. If it interests you, just don't play as the dwarf for your first playthrough, he's the game's hard mode. You can get it off MyAbandonWare.

Rpgs

What the hell happened to the term Rpgs? I thought it meant role-playing games and was games like baldur's gate or dragon age. But it seems like anything under the sun is an RPG now a days. How are games like kingdom hearts and xenoblade 2 RPGs, you play as an already existing character, you can't change anything in the story or how other characters react to you, if you say that you role play as that character, how is this different then literally any other game out there? Can't I role play as Mario or Leon Kennedy, does that make Super Mario or resident evil RPGs? No, of course not. Hell I've heard people say that the new god of war is an RPG!

Reflection of Final Fantasy 7 Remake

There's an upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Remake concert this weekend and the rumors are abound that there will be an announcement of a PS5 and PC release of Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Would make sense since they announced Kingdom Hearts series coming to PC but through epic. https://archive.vn/kIUHE "Final Fantasy VII Remake News Coming at the FF7R Orchestra Concert This Weekend" https://archive.vn/EpnoS "Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel's Avengers boost sales at Square Enix" Frankly, I don't care but I thought it would be a good discussion point. I assumed it must have cleared 10 million sales by now but that doesn't seem to be the case. They would surely brag about that if they hit the 10 million spot but I didn't find anything. Sifting through the news, 3.5 million is the confirmed one from launch. Breaking 5 million sales gets muddled up with 5 million shipped with some articles but I think it's already crossed this point. Unless I'm missing a stated figure in some earnings report, I'm guessing it has sold 7 million at the very least. That's a high number but with how long it took to develop that can't be good. They say FF7R and Marvel's Avengers help boost sales for it's fiscal report and we all know how terrible Avengers sold, even though I found articles that say they were pleased with it before until the reported losses. It could also be an announcement of when Part 2 is coming out since I don't think we've got any confirmed information of when that will release. It should come out faster since they've got the models and system done but the bigger question is will it follow what came after defeating the ghosts that control fate and the story will deviate further into Kingdom Hearts or will be stick with the original story more closely because of the backlash? I'm still guessing it will take 10 years to complete Final Fantasy 7 Remake with 4 parts minimum. Anyone still care about Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 and beyond after that horrible rendition that was the first remake? Any way to fix the other remake parts or is it too late?

/fit/ video games

So, long story short, I want some advice on planning my exercise routine on Wii Fit U. Pretty much what I have been doing is spending the first hour, every morning doing 10 minutes of "aerobics" (Usually playing a regular Wii game that requires motion controls), then 20-30 minutes of actual exercising (In Wii Fit U), then another 10-20 minutes of "aerobics" (Again, in a regular Wii game). Reason I've followed this routine is because one of the fitness instructors at the gym I used to go to recommended it as the "best" way to get a workout. Another thing they recommended is that I don't do the same exercises every day, otherwise my body starts building an endurance against those specific exercises. So, the routine I've been following for the past few months is just selecting randoms exercises in WFU, five days a week, with Satudays spent going hiking/jogging for an hour (Plan on increasing that time as the days get warmer). Outside of that, I currently work at a fabrication facility, so I spend most of my days walking and lifting (Though, it looks like I'll be let go within the next few weeks). <So, here is my dilemma, what exercises routines would be best recommended in order for me to receive the most benefits? As far as my body's circumstance, I'm currently 5'11", average around 205 lbs. The only real "goal" that I have is that I want to reduce my waist size. Outside of that, I just want to build up the rest of my body, especially when it feels like I spend too much time building up my legs because of everything else I do (Apparently I average around 8000-10,000 steps each day). Also, I only have the chance to set up two routines because the first slot is already filled with activities that do not require the Fit board because, in the past, it seems to become very finicky whenever I change the batteries and it refused to connect or turn on. So, what are your recommendations? Also, this is a thread to discuss about other video games to use for exercising.

Project /v/attletoads - Hole in the Toad

A new Battletoads game came out on Friday. It fucking sucked. It was an insult to fans of the original and a trainwreck of cringeworthy detached millennial irony humor written by one of the BPD-afflicted faggots who wrote Rick and Morty. We could write a book detailing how bad this game was, but instead we're taking the high road. Since Microsoft is too fucking retarded to make a good Battletoads game, we are taking matters into our own nodev hands. So we are making a new game, entitled Project /v/attletoads, that we will do our best to make into the new game the series deserves. Planned features: >4 player co-op >Online! >New playable female Battletoad, Blista! >All new original sprites and cutscenes featuring original artwork >Over the top furry death >Titties If you're a coder, musician, or pixel/vector artist, we could use your help. Collaborate with us on our project, even if you're not any of the above things, you can still help out by posting suggestions, artwork and comments in this thread. Also, discuss Battletoads in general. The plan: 1. Work on the game. 2. Drop the 1.0 version. 3. Disseminate/mirror it everywhere. 4. Let the Streisand effect do its thing as Microsoft can't C&D this shit fast enough.

Reverse Traps

Post reverse traps from video games. Red in Gunstar Super Heroes is pretty cute. There's an unused image in the game data that suggests she was supposed to look more girly at one point. Is there a name for a girl growing out her hair above and in front of the ear to hide her lack of sideburns? Dororo is a classic reverse trap loli and manages the unusual combination of combining pantsu shots with reverse trap. The PS2 game, released as "Blood Will Tell" in the west, is actually pretty decent and is a solid 4/5 action game. Just make sure to grab the undub because the English dub is not horrible, but it's definitely not good by any means. Murno in Swordcraft Story 3 is only a reverse trap for a couple minutes of play, but it lasts long enough for her to kiss the heroine. That kiss sets up their relationship for the rest of the game. It's pretty nice.

Dinosaur Planet Leaked

An almost (but not fully) complete build of Dinosaur Planet, what would have been Rare's last game for the N64, has been leaked. It appears to be the final build before it was canceled and remade as Star Fox Adventures for the GameCube. News is already big enough that it rendered the original upload site unaccesable after they got (going by their Twitter metric) over 100 times their normal traffic. Download https://archive.org/details/dino_20210220 (this is actually pretty big file size wise since it's a dev rom and not cart) Since N64 emulation is a hacked together mess and this game has never been accounted for, it runs like shit on all of them. If you have an Everdrive (maybe other N64 flash carts if they exist), set NDPE to Flash 1Mbit to make this run properly.

I played the darkness 2 and was surprised at how short the game was, I remember it taking like 6-8 hours when I first got it but this time it was more like 4-5 hours. I do remember length being a problem back in the 7th gen but at least the game was pretty fun to play. The problem now is that I really want more games with this sort of dark comic book style.

GBA Thread - 20th Anniversary and "Best System - Best Girls" edition

The Gameboy Advance launched in Japan on March 11th 2001. Thus it's 20th anniversary will be next month. Favorite GBA games? Any untranslated classics you want to see in English (Swordcraft Story 3 never ever)? Why the fuck are you using the ancient VBA and not the more modern mGBA or at least the actually updated VBA-M? Is GBA considered "retro" now? Do you think Nintendo is going to do anything more than a social media post? It's more or less confirmed that Capcom will be doing something special for the anniversary since Battle Network 1 was a launch title in Japan (which explains so many of its shortcomings) and, thus, this day is also the Battle Network series's 20th anniversary. They made a public announcement seeking partners to make merch. There's also speculation a Battle Network Legacy Collection (pretty much inevitable given Capcom's previous ones have sold so well and they take relatively little effort) will be announced/released on the anniversary. There's a possibly it will include the "lost"* (pre-smart and apparently actually good) cellphone exclusive games since Masakazu Eguchi (important guy for all the games, especially 2 onward, and basis for Mr. Famous) mentioned in an interview last year he's heard a lot of people have been asking for them and (more importantly) Capcom DMCAed a guy trying to port/remake the first one. Capcom DMCAing fan projects that aren't taking money is supposedly rare and unusual

8BitDo Reveals Its New "Pro 2" Bluetooth Controller (General Controller Thread)

Honestly I'm surprised I haven't heard of this till just now. In any case 8bitdo is making a new pro controller with back buttons, a mode switch button instead of those retarded button combinations. Honestly the Pro was one of my favorite controllers and I'm happy that they're finally making a new one with back buttons since that's a feature I feel most modern controllers should have. I just hope they make the D-Pad more clicky since I've been using the Razer Raion for playing SoTN and while I love the D-Pad the buttons are too damn big. Either way it's great to see how far we've come from the madcatz era of cheap small cheetos controllers. Now if only I can find reliable wireless controllers for some of my retro systems.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is looking terrible

I'm sure you guys are shocked by this news. Coming out May 14 for those who care. https://archive.vn/sNA1V https://archive.vn/Uf2qL https://archive.vn/QriQG They are going to change camera angles to not focus on Miranda's butt or female Shepard upskirt exploit. Even though Miranda was created to be genetically "perfect", I guess sex appeal is not perfect for modern Bioware. From the few screenshots, it looks like they went to the school of JJ Abrams and went lens flare happy. I can hear the Beastie Boys soundtrack playing for no reason in Mass Effect right now. No multiplayer so you don't have to grind for readiness in Mass Effect 3 which I kind of forgot about since that terrible ending overshadows everything about it. You should be able to get all the readiness from single player content which is one the few things i say or good, even if it does cut multiplayer content. It will not include the Pinnacle Station DLC because of source code corruption which is understandable and a known issue before. However, since this is modern Bioware, and their reputation has been frankly in the toilet, they should prove themselves that they still have "talent" left in them and rebuild the DLC from the ground up. They made Anthem so they should be able to give 120% to a franchise that most people respected in the past. That might be unreasonable but I think you have to put more effort to earn back trust after you've lost it. From general reception, it looks like most normies are happy with it, like a remaster can't be terrible. It's like they haven't seen the recent ones that stunk like Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles and Crysis. I think the censorship in this part remaster, semi-remake is giving insight into how covered the ladies will be when the new Mass Effect and Dragon Age come out. Legendary edition will probably sell well but I don't think those once great franchises will revive if this is a sign of what is to come.

Tactical Shooters

Recently i've been playing some tactical shooter games and i wanted to talk about the games i've played and other games in the tactical shooter genre. So far i've only played Hell let loose and Rising storm 2 vietnam. I only have a few hours on each game. >hell let loose Its a world war 2 tactical shooter. It looks like battlefield, The maps are large and from what i've heard they're "accurate" (they scanned real life battlefields somehow and made it into maps). I think the guns are fun to use. Especially the standard rifleman rifle. Its a one shot kill weapon. As is pretty much every weapon in this game. What i dont like about the game so far is that the objectives are not very good. It just seems like most of the game is spent fighting in the middle, over and over again with no progress whatsoever. A bad thing is that alot of people dont use their mics so you can cant coordinate and play as a team. But when they do use their mics then its pretty good. The maps can feel too large at times. I cant think of anything else to say about it. I like it but if find it pretty boring. >rising storm 2 vietnam It is what its title indicates. Its a tactical shooter in the vietnam war. Its tactical but arcadey at the same time. My matches so far were pretty much all clusterfucks. The guns were fun to use. I dont like the movement in the game. It felt very clunky and slow. I dont know the maps well enough but the maps i played so far were okay. I've only played defence so i cant comment on attacker. Its pretty frustrating because the playerbase is not that big so most of the enemies you play against have hundreds of hours logged on the game. But it was kind of fun at the same time. Also alot of people talk in voice chat so that makes it more fun.

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

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

Cyberpunk 2077 apology- Our Commitment to Quality

Didn't think we'd be talking about this game again but they must've realize how much they fucked up they had to make an apology video. I could probably ding it because it looks like he's reading from a script, but given how those working for CDPR shot their lips off from the hip and made the situation worse during the month of release of Cyberpunk 2077, I can kind of understand the approach. Marcin Iwinski, co-founder of CD Projekt Red, lays out I guess some of the issues. It was his and the boards decision that was at fault for the early release and not the developers which we already knew. The scope of the project was huge they wanted to go big on PC and adjusted it for "old-gen". Still using old-gen even though it's actually current gen and what most people can get available with how the next-gen is limited in stock and there really isn't a next-gen update available yet. Anyway, in-game streaming on old-gen didn't show issues at first but with each new addition, they had to adjust and thought they'd make Day Zero update which they did not. PC version wasn't perfect version of game but are proud of it. Because of working from home during covid and the Day Zero update, the console review keys were released on the 8th instead of early like PC (and not because "they were hiding how bad the console version was" is what I think he's implying). Update plans: Longterm support for Cyberpunk 2077 haven't changed. Next update in 10 days, and a significant update in the following weeks. They'll focus on the most important fixes and release the free DLCs after. The next gen update will release somewhere in the second half of 2021. It seems like they're trying to rebuild their reputation after wasting all those 25 years of trust built. With some of the schedule laid out (with no dates though), it's pretty clear they needed another 4-6 months to finish Cyberpunk 2077. I would've also dropped PS4 and Xbone versions and just aimed for a next gen release that might've come out a little later than PC version. It's a first step but we'll see if any other problems occur down the line.

After the failure of Stadia: Super Bomberman R Online is coming to literally every thing as a F2P game

Basically for those who don't know, Konami made an exclusive Bomberman game that has supportfor 64 players in a free for all Bomberman match. It seems they're finally releasing it on other platforms after realizing what a mess Stadia is. Still this and Wave Break were some of the more promising games on Stadia so I'm happy they're finally coming to a proper platform. >As Bomberman returns with the gameplay that has made the franchise a party game classic—blast through battlefields, find hidden power-ups and use them to blow away foes, the action in Super Bomberman R Online erupts to new-heights with the “Battle 64” mode. Delivering the ultimate battle royale experience, up to 64 players are spread across 16 starting battlefields. As levels are cleared and players are whittled down, the number of battlefields continue to shrink until the ultimate final battle to be the last bomber standing. >Super Bomberman R Online brings more than 100 customizable feature combinations, including numerous costumes, accessories and for the first time, bomb skins—affecting both the bomb and the blast itself. Players can further discern themselves from the rest with the optional Premium Pack (SRP $9.99 USD), giving access to 14 additional bomber characters that pay homage to classic Konami IPs such as Gradius, Silent Hill, Castlevania, and more! >While anyone in the world can jump into a “Battle 64” room, the Premium Pack allows players to create their own private Room Match with rulesets that include “Battle 64” mode, “Standard” mode with up to 16 players or “Grand Prix.” Grand Prix divides players into two teams of up three-versus-three to compete in earning points with the highest point total after the two battle rounds wins.
