/gameclub/ Thread - R4: Ridge Racer Type 4

Welcome back to the gameclub, your weekly force-fed dish of videogames! >What's the /gameclub/? It's a thread where we play a game, and talk about it, like a book club. Try out something you might have never played, share your thoughts, compare scores, and have fun. GAME: This game is powered by Namco. It's Ridge Racer, Riiiidge Racer! Remember that one? R4: Ridge Racer Type 4 for the Playstation to be specific. >R4: Ridge Racer Type 4 (Ridge Racer Type 4 in Europe) is a racing video game developed and published by Namco for the PlayStation. It is the fourth title in the Ridge Racer series and the last to be released for the PlayStation. It was later re-released on the PlayStation Network in 2011 and pre-loaded on the PlayStation Classic which was released on December 3, 2018. It is the first Ridge Racer series game on the PlayStation to use Gouraud shading on polygons. >Vehicles are earned by playing through the game's Grand Prix mode. Players select one of four teams; R.C Micro Mouse Mappy (France), Pac Racing Club (Japan), Racing Team Solvalou (Italy), and Dig Racing Team (United States), who each have varying difficulties, and one of four manufacturers; Age Solo (France), Lizard (United States), Assoluto (Italy), and Terrazi (Japan), which determines the style of car and powerslide type the player will use. In each race, the player must attempt to reach a qualifying position, with later stages requiring players to place in higher positions to qualify. Depending on the qualifying position in each race, players will be awarded a new vehicle, or an upgrade to their current one, based on their team and manufacturer, with better cars earned for reaching consistently higher positions (i.e. the best cars are earned by placing 1st in each match while the least impressive cars are earned by just clearing the minimum qualifying positions). There are a total of 320 vehicles earned by racing with every combination of team, manufacturer and qualifying position. If the players unlock all 320 cars, they will unlock an additional one modelled after Pac-Man, for a total of 321 vehicles. >The game also features Time Attack mode, in which players can attempt to get the fastest time on each course, and VS. Battle, a split-screen mode for two players (the first to appear in the home console series) and an undocumented PlayStation Link Cable mode, allowing four players to play simultaneously. Players can also create their own car decors and participate in Extra Trials against powerful prototype cars. The game is also compatible with the JogCon peripheral and the PocketStation device, which allows players to trade cars with friends. (via Wikipedia) FUN FACT: Each of the game's racing teams (RC Micro Mouse Mappy, Pac Racing Club, Racing Team Solvalou, and Dig Racing Team) are each named after a different Namco arcade game (Mappy, Pac-Man, Xevious, and Dig Dug respectively).

Fire Emblem's weird direction and a possible future?

I haven't seen much discussion here or previously about Fire Emblem 3 Houses and its weird, jumbled identity. It's certainly a fascinating case when you take in account the history of Fire Emblem and ignore the localizations, because I think we're seeing a very hard shift in both stories presented in FE and developers. All this is speculation mind you. Old Fire Emblem >Made by nerds who liked 80s and 90s fantasy anime and DnD >Series from 1 up to 10 were about fantasy Europe being the good guys mostly and fighting against dragons, undead and some dark priests mostly >Series jerked off fantasy France mostly >In an ironic twist, they depicted Macedonia as megalomaniacal and later humbled as a nod to Alexander the Great >Big bad was mostly Fantasy Britain but thanks to Alm this stopped >Fantasy Skandinavia got two games and somehow was connected to fantasy Thrace >Fantasy Greece also got two games and was connected to Arthurian / Roland legends fighting against Messopotamian deities and dragons >FE9 and 10 were fantasy Crimean recreating Crimean legends featuring Guts from the Berserk series >The games are loved in Japan, many series exist thanks to Kaga's idea of making Lazer Squad into an RPG as well >Fire Emblem grows by adding Kaga's ideas and by trading ideas with the series that sprouted thanks to them, like SRW <FE11 and 12 were remakes <We all know how uber shit 12 was and how it almost killed the franchise <The less said about Kris the better Fire Emblem's final game >Awakening starts >Its mostly new staff >Decide to make a game that is an amalgamation of all the previous games, somehow >They manage to do it on zero budget >Story is fantasy Francish Kingdom, now a Fantasy Franc kingdom post-fantasy Charlemagne, fighting against fantasy Persia, founded by fantasy Brettons that became a cult and fucked over fantasy France and fantasy Brittain a 1000 years ago >(you) are some retarded amnesiac that buff Marth finds while travelling >Buff Marth is heralded along with his sister as the new coming of Marth and the most important people in the universe <Obviously evil guy tells (you) that (you) are actually the most important person in the whole universe and that (you) are the true ubermensch >(you) are actually some retarded bookworm with 0 social skills and the only cool thing you have is a weird tattoo <Turns out that being an ubermensch according to the cult means having a suitable body for the fucking Dragon Gimli, the ender of Ragnarok, to inhabit and destroy the world >Shit pants <Time travel also happens <In the nip version, it is implied that (your) kid, Marc, isn't from the same timeline and they're an alternate universe (you) that travelled with Lyn, Eliwood and Hector, just like (you) are implied to have done as well >Story basically concludes with fantasy France, fantasy Russia, who also happen to magically have some fantasy Ainu people among them, fantasy Brittain and (you) basically stop Ragnarok and save the world forever <Gameplay is weirdly balanced but one can make it work, depending on what Fire Emblem he liked in the past >Game is treated with respect in Japan, it's the ultimate closure <Game seels like hotcakes in the west <It's the ultimate waifu-husbando simulator and eugenics program <Localization botches all the references and connections to almost ALL previous Fire Emblems and the nods to specific things that nips knew, like Priam named Paris because Ike was originally named Paris in order to hit home that he hailed from fantasy Troy >Nami Komoru steps up and is awarded for her success <She basically created just two characters and wrote about a dozen support conversations but she also did twitter campaigns to promote the game <At the time, a certain section of tumblr that stalked japanese twitter for cult-of-personality tweets caught wind of it and spread the word and a boost in sales happened so here we are Fire Emblem helmed under Nami Komoru >Let's have a new start for Fire Emblem >Sounds good, we got a new team, new budget <Nami Komoru is at the helm, gets total control of the project, contracts 5 differen expensive authors and mangaka to write dialogue and support for the game <WITHOUT GIVING THEM CONTEXT OR ANY WAY TO COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER <WHILE SHE WRITES THE SCENARIO FOR ALL ROUTES AND THE CHARACTERS >Gameplay is also shit and exacerbates the few flaws that Awakening had and multiplies them by 1000% >She has the genius idea of doing Fantasy Medieval times vs Fantasy Japan >Of course Fantasy Japan are the super good guys without flaws >Fucking Kamui / Corrin is Kris but a thousand times worse and more obnoxious >Revelations is basically a straight rip-off of Gundam Seed and Kamui is straight up Kira Yamato <Somehow the localization is even worse than the game >Everything is absolute cancer about <It's got the highest sales as a game at the time <Especially due to censorship controversies and due to western tumblrtards spreading lies about the game being LGBTBBQ friendly due to Zero / Niles, who's basically Nami Komoru's yaoi fantasy voiced by Takehito Koyasu >Fire Emblem Warriors starts <The production s troubled, devs don't know what to do, you know how it goes >Team Ninja members make the two main characters of FEW as a blonde Ax Wielder and a blonde Lance Wielder <We could have had Blond Ephraim and Blonde FemHector >The original plan was for Darius to be the secret Sword Wielder Lord that was recruited later >Intelligent Systems suddenly is interested and yoinks the designs for those two lords for their upcoming mobage project at the time <They also yoinked Maaya Uchida for the role of their mobage Lord as well and KoeiTecmo had to beg them to be able to use her alongside her brother in order to voice the twins in FEW >Fire Emblem Heroes >This is basically where the bulk of Intelligent Systems went and all the apparent "A" tier talent <The less said about this fucking cancer, the better >Fire Emblem Echoes >A remake from the "B" tier team about one of the more infamous FE titles <It's actually really fucking good and faithful to the original >B team shows they carry the Fire Emblem spirit within them and deliver a great game with amazing aesthetics and designs (cont.)

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.

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?

Cory in the House Thread

https://archive.is/2kRcT The eponymous protagonist from the classic DS game "Cory in the House" has been accused of sending pornographic material to a minor. This doesn't worry me in the slightest, considering the protagonist also gets sent to prison in the game and escapes later on in traditional JRPG fashion. Despite the accusations, this is one extraordinary game and one that has stood the tests of time. Share your fondest memories of the game.

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

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.

GOOD Games with Short Dev Time

Games with a development time of less than 9 months-1 year almost always wind up as trashfires if they're not directly building upon an existing game (making them effectively a standalone expansion). Let's talk about games with short dev times that don't suck and aren't just updates of their predecessor! Dev interviews have said Mega Man 7 was developed in only three months, which is amazing. Presumably it reused a lot of the engine for X and X2, but all the graphics are new and the gameplay differs substantially. The only really bad thing about 7 is the final boss, and X managed to have an equally shitty one with a full dev cycle. https://archive.ph/fF40W Agent Under Fire's exact dev time isn't clear, but it's known the previous project, a PS2 version of the PS1 The World is Not Enough, was canceled in 2001 and the game released in November 2001 in an era where going gold to release took a full month. In a best case scenario that's nine months (assuming it was canceled in January and development of the new game began immediately), but likely less. The end-game is relatively barebones, but the strength of the Quake 3 engine shooting does carry the game pretty well.

Free Loli Swimsuit Skins In Gacha Games Summer 2021

I wanted to bring this to the attention of some people who are aware of the challenges that video game devs/publishers are currently facing in regards to having loli characters in their games. As I'm sure you all know if you're on this refugee site of a refugee site, the last couple years have been pretty rough on lolicons in video games and across media in general. Due to social media and the increasing power of American tech companies, sexualized depictions of lolis have been being phased out of media, with video games being hit the hardest. Many have attributed it to the media presence leading up to Tokyo Olympics, some devs have spoken out regarding increasing restrictions being placed on them by Apple and Google, some have highlighted a need to appeal to western sensibilities to continue to do business in a global market. Which is why I was immediately suspicious upon seeing the line-up of free swimsuit skins across a variety of gacha games I play this year. They're all lolis. All of them. Furthermore, there aren't any paid loli swimsuits from what I've seen. Its possibly a coincidence, but being the paranoid schizophrenic the last couple years have made me in regards to media I like being ruined for me, I have a few ideas as to what may be happening: 1.) The Devs want to continue releasing loli content for their games, but with the unsure state of future global politics, they're taking precautions to only release "free" content that can be withdrawn from the players possession with minimal legal hassle and consumer retribution later on. 2.) Devs realized that loli skins either sell not as well compared to cowtit skins or that loli consumers only consume loli skins, and that even if they charged for them, the lolicons themselves would just use stockpiled/saved currency- defeating the purpose of charging for them in the first place. 4.) Multiple devs are preparing loli swimsuit skins that they've been holding back to be released at a time coinciding with the end of the Tokyo Olympics. 4.) And least likely: This is some kind of combined effort to protest western censorship. I acknowledge that I'm probably just schizoposting, but does anyone else see anything strange about so many similar skins being released for free at such a sensitive time? Has anyone noticed anything I've missed?

Upload 5 files and then zip the rest if the dump is larger then 6-7 files. Music Albums exceeding 5 files are to be zipped. 3. 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.

It's easy to learn, hard to master battle system makes for fun and fast paced matches with counterhits often launching girls across the screen. Very fast when played right. As a P2P game, game hosts must forward ports in order to play it or use specific workarounds. DOWNLOAD LINKS: Full installation: https://mega.nz/file/JaZ1WCrZ#S5KOFmp7vvV6I31hmJh157q9Nw0Z0fDMYb01WBQ4h_Y This repack contains pre-configured soku alongside quality-of-life mods like automatically enabling rollback (sokuroll), autopunch, netplay lobby and being able to change contents of your deck in the character selection menu during netplay. Simply extract and enjoy the game.

Get soku, then extract contents of swrs toys (modpack archive) directly into the same folder. Wiki: https://hisouten.koumakan.jp/ To host, a hosting player forwards a port (detailed instructions are available on the internet) and provides IP with a port in an IP:Port format, launches the game and uses the Vs Network menu to start the server. Client connects to provided IP and port and plays game. For hosts, please be sure to check the options menu to set a port and disable the "post to bot" checkmark if you don't want random people from the lobby to join instead of people in the thread. If no one's joining in the central thread, playing people from the lobby can be a good idea to practice! Should a port be unable to be forwarded, workarounds exist - Autopunch is installed in a modpack and is used automatically in case of un-forwarded ports. Keep in mind that it can fail on some routers and workplace connections and that ping will likely be less desirable, so please forward your ports.

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?

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.

Talk about a game you like

I believe that Penguin Adventure is the perfect videogame sequel. It doesn't try to reinvent the wheel but rather just takes everything that made the first game great and turns it up to eleven. It's crazy how such an old game is packed with so much content, there's power ups, 24 stages, special stages, shops, slot machines and even more than one ending and boss battles. All of that in a 1986 MSX game, which by the way was the first game Kojima ever worked on professionaly. It's a tough game, you have to time your jumps correctly and manage your speed just right. Some cool facts >Pentaro is a regular playable character in the Parodius series >To get the best ending and save the princess, you have to pause just once >the Famicom platformer Yume Penguin Monogatari is a sort of spiritual sequel to it, there's a GCCX episode about it. https://www.sa-gccx.com/episode/yume-penguin-monogatari >There's a fanmade remake for PC https://www.classic-retro-games.com/games/action/penguin-adventure-635 >You can play the original here http://www.jamsx.com/penguin_adventure

Games that you will never stop playing

Basically games that have longevity with you and replay value. I don't start new game after new game for Yakuza games but they all have so much side-content with the minigames and I like to just hop on them and play them from time to time when I'm bored. Yakuza 5 specifically has some of my favorite side-content of the series. I've been getting on these games for years even after fully completing them.

/gameclub/ Thread - Crash Bandicoot 2

Welcome to this week's gameclub thread! Despite having this ready a week in advance I somehow still ended up taking my time with it. >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: Get ready to smash some ass with a blast from the past, we're playing Crash Bandicoot 2, for the Playstation! >Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back is a 1997 platform video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation. It is a sequel to Crash Bandicoot (1996), and is part of the Crash Bandicoot series. >Taking place on a fictional group of islands near Australia, Crash Bandicoot 2 follows the adventures of the anthropomorphic bandicoot named Crash. Crash is abducted by series villain Doctor Neo Cortex, who tricks him into thinking he wants to save the world. Crash is thrust into several parts of N. Sanity Island in order to gather crystals that will allow Cortex to contain the power of an upcoming planetary alignment and keep the planet from being destroyed. Crash's sister Coco and Cortex's former assistant Doctor Nitrus Brio try to warn him about Cortex, with the latter urging Crash to gather gems instead of crystals. >Cortex Strikes Back received positive reviews from critics and is widely considered to be superior to its predecessor. Much of the praise went to the game's graphics, controls and music, while criticisms focused on the trial-and-error gameplay, lack of level variety, easy boss levels and lack of innovation as a platform game. The game went on to become one of the best-selling PlayStation video games of all time and replaced its predecessor as the highest-selling Western title in Japan at the time, selling more than 800,000 copies in the country by April 1998. A remastered version was included in the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy collection, released on the PlayStation 4 in June 2017, and ported to other platforms in June 2018. (via Wikipedia) FUN FACT: Like many reputably good games, Crash 2 only had about a year of development time (13 months). For reference, most AAA games take twice that amount of time to make on average. HORRIFYING FACT: One of the game's death animations had to be censored in Japan because it too closely resembled the severed head and shoes left by a notorious serial killer still loose in the country around the time of release.

CONTACT INFO Western branch: https://arcsystemworks.com/contact/ Nip Branch (more important): https://www.arcsystemworks.jp/support/form.php Send them some strongly worded (but polite) shit, remind them you're a customer of their's if you are, and demand to speak with someone who can actually address your concerns (don't get railroaded by a low-tier soy-faced intern who is designed to be a sponge for your complaints and get tossed away like the rag he is) The only way to get through these companies is to hit them where it hurts: their wallets. If they don't respond to that, they're too far gone and you should abandon them until they make a complete 180, at least in my opinion.

Games about mundane jobs done in an over the top dramatic manner

Let's talk about video games where mundane jobs are portrayed to be dramatic, incredibly serious business. Games which try to weave exciting stories with seemingly mundane things. Although Ace Attorney and Trauma Center take jobs that can be made exciting with a bit of thought, they go far beyond that adding seemingly crazy elements to their stories. But those series are popular at least Ace Attorney is do you know any other?

Emulation thread

For everyone to let their autism flow about whether or not RetroArch is the best emulator ever made, OR it's the worst POS to ever exist. Remember hat most questions can be answered by the Wiki: https://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/Main_Page So, I need some help with emulating Mac][ and Windows 3.1/95 games. I'm trying to install the games from the "rare game mafia" pack. And, installing the Nip version of Windows so that I can play them. 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. Meanwhile, with the Mac games, I cannot get Basilisk II to load despite the guides I've found for it. Is there an easier to load these games, or a preferred guide for each method?

Best Parts of Bad Games

MegaMan Battle Network 4 is the worst game in the main Battle Network series by far for many reasons, but it had a neat penultimate boss fight against a dark copy of MegaMan.EXE. What makes this fight neat is that he isn't just a generic boss with MegaMan's appearance, but he mirrors what upgrades you've found (he has the same max HP as you), what customization you have, and uses the same attacks you have equipped (plus a chance of using ones you have found but don't have equipped). This means you can't just power through him, but have to outsmart him by dodging better than the AI can and using abilities he can't. (I know Guild Wars had a quest that did something similar, but that was more of a matter of equipping abilities the AI couldn't use effectively than a true mirror match.)

Valve Announces Steam Deck

For those who don't know, Valve has been working on a handheld called the Steampai for quite some time. The name is now called the Steam Deck and it's basically a new handheld to compete with the Switch. Unlike the GPD Win, it comes with Linux and will come in three options. 64GB, 256GB and 512GB. The device itself runs on an AMD APU and will start at 400 dollars. Reservations begin tomorrow and the device will ship out on December 2021.

FFXIV Thread

New thread since there's an announcement regarding the game which is 99% gonna be an expansion which is pretty major plus the old thread hasn't been bumped in a while. The announcement is gonna be tomorrow and there may also be news of the next major patch. Any predictions for the expansion? Perhaps we go to Garlemald? Sharlayan? The Moon? As for jobs maybe we'll get a Beastmaster or Chemist?

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.

I was inclined to make this thread thanks to the nice pictures posted over in the TES discussion one. >>259726 Post whatever screenshots you'd like from games. Starting off with some from one of my playthroughs of Morrowind. There's something about an older game like it that feels a little serene, like you're wandering a quiet town and just taking in the sights around you.

Vehicle Oriented Thread

Cause the anon making the mecha thread should've tried killing two birds with one stone. Games that are centered around using some sort of vehicle, such as a tank or an aircraft. **Mechs count too.* Here's a couple games to get us started: >Blaster Master <Metroidvania-esque maze game <Can drive a tank, but you can also enter and exit it <While on foot, you can enter areas that host upgrades and other items <Doesn't have a save feature, not even a password system, making it one of the few situations where you won't be bullied for using save states <One of the later games in the series has a big titty watermelon woman >Wind Waker <Cool cel-shaded artstyle <Use a boat to traverse a large ocean <Explore Islands with a lot of secrets to find <Unironically, one of the best Zelda characters, Tingle, is in the game <Tetra is cool too, I guess <HOY <Triforce quest We don't talk about Star Fox Zero.

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.

Video Game Trademarks/Ratings Board Releases That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread

Since these reveal new games with relative frequency and are verifiable, they're worth talking about. At the same time, most things revealed by this are just re-releases and don't really need a full thread every time one happens. Namco Bandai acquired new trademarks for the the greatest speedrunning game of all time Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Oceans, as well as its prequel Baten Kaitos: Origins in all regions back in May. What is notable about this is that Origins has a European trademark despite never being released in Europe (its NA release was the last real game on the GameCube, everything after it was licensed shovelware and annual sports titles). https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/trademarks/018467600 https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/trademarks/018467592 Given the individual game titles were trademarked, this is almost certainly for a port of some kind (possibly Switch only, as the dev team is now owned by Nintendo and the franchise got some music and spirits in Smash) instead of a new game. Still, the pair are some of the rare games that would indisputably benefit from an actual remaster over just emulating them due to their use of (beautiful) pre-rendered painted backgrounds of its strange alien world that would greatly benefit from using a higher res copy of the original. There's also a few small changes to the first game that would make it far better with minimal work >remove the limit on looting one item per battle (possibly by increasing it based on some other factor of gamestate like hand level) >axe the arbitrary missables (disc 1 had a ton) >remove the weird filter on voice acting if your affinity score is low >make magus evolution based on clock time instead of gameplay time >incorporate the wing dash and instant ladders from the sequel >original voice track by default >new game plus Origins by contrast needs almost no changes beyond bug fixes and restoring the female option cut because (most charitable case) the discs weren't big enough to hold two versions of applicable audio lines.

/gameclub/ Thread - Spelunky Classic

Life is unbearable and I wish I was dead, welcome back to the gameclub thread! >What's the /gameclub/? It's a thread where we play a game, and talk about it, like a gay club. Try out something you might have never played, share your thoughts, compare scores, and have fun. GAME: Taking into account the votes from both previous threads, we still came out with a tie between two games. A simple question determined the course of events forever more: We're playing Spelunky, for PC! >Spelunky is a 2008 source-available 2D platform game created by independent developer Derek Yu and released as freeware for Microsoft Windows. It was remade for the Xbox 360 in 2012, with ports of the new version following for various platforms, including back to Microsoft Windows. The player controls a spelunker who explores a series of caves while collecting treasure, saving damsels, fighting enemies, and dodging traps. The caves are procedurally generated, making each run through of the game unique. Spelunky is one of the first games that borrowed concepts from roguelikes and combined them with real-time side-scrolling platformer elements. Due to its popularity, it was the influence for many later rogue-like games. >The first public release was on December 21, 2008. The source code of the Windows version was released on December 25, 2009. An enhanced version for Xbox Live Arcade was released on July 4, 2012. The enhanced version was later released for Windows and PlayStation 3 in August 2013, and for PlayStation 4 on October 7, 2014. The remake was also made available on Xbox One via backward compatibility in December 2015. A Chrome OS version of the original game was made as well, titled Spelunky HTML5. A port for Nintendo Switch is planned for release in Summer 2021. A sequel, Spelunky 2, was released in September 2020. >Spelunky received critical acclaim for its gameplay, atmosphere and design, though some controls and multiplayer elements polarized critics. Many critics and publications regarded it as one of the greatest video games of all time. (via Wikipedia) FUN FACT: The entire game's source code is freely available to dick around with! ANNOYED FACT: There was a pretty big modding scene for Spelunky back when it was hot and new, but it seems like the forums they were hosted on are down. Also despite having substantially different content, game coding and controls, most websites don't make a large distinction between Spelunky Classic and Spelunky HD even though one's a freeware project and the other's a retail product. COMPLETION: Post the best score you can manage or how far you get! This game's a pretty reasonable length so it's likely you'll get to the end if you really try. I've been doing this weekly anyway so having a date's sort of retarded.

Monark

Recently announced spiritual successor to "SMT if..." that's been secretly in development for a while, and is half a year away from release now. I posted about this game in the general news thread, but abstained from making a thread for it until I got a huge amount of content to post. Well, that time is now. I have machine-translated a 3-page interview (pic included) and I will paste the entire thing ITT. But first of all, just to go over the basic details: >Semi-SRPG with multiple paths and endings, developed by Lancarse and published by FuRyu >Creator team includes 4 of the original MegaTen veterans >Plans to release on 10/14, 2021 in Japan, and early 2022 in the west (sadly, it's NISA) >PS4, PS5, Switch, Steam >Gameplay includes controlling spooky skeletal demons, a party of 6, a sanity meter and more >Official livestreams are scheduled for the 14th of every month (5 in total) until the Japanese release Now with all that out of the way, here's the "Creator Interview" with Fuyuki Hayashi, Mitsuhiro Hoshino, Aya Nishitani, Ryutaro Ito, Kazunari Suzuki and Tsukasa Masuko. My foreword: I don't know Japanese, so I went through the tedious process of cropping and contrast-upping each text column, running them all through OCR, copypasting to and from DeepL, and cleaning up all the obvious errors I could find. To make my point: Fuck Gematsu, fuck (((PersonaCentral))) and all those other faggots who have actual translation staff on hand but completely slept on this interview because it's not about the latest gay Persona 5 spinoff. I got this done myself because I actually care about (potentially) good games. And I may not have done the best job here, but I'll only get better. With that said, I owe big thanks to Frank deWindt II for posting these clean, high-quality mag scans. Interview starts here: ----- >When did the project start? Hayashi: I think it was around the beginning of 2019 when the project took shape. We both loved "Shin Megami Tensei if..." (a Super Nintendo game released by Atlus in 1994.) We had a lot of fun talking about it. Hoshino: That's right. I played a lot of "if..." in my generation. I've always liked the Megami Tensei series and the Shin Megami Tensei series. I fell in love with the world of "if..." I was hooked. I thought that there were no games like "if..." recently. I remember having a lively discussion with Mr. Hayashi. Hayashi: I had a plan for a school RPG that I had been working on for a while, so we had a meeting at which we shared the same ideas. While keeping in mind the essence and atmosphere of the worldview that we wanted to preserve, we reconstructed it based on modern elements and the unique characteristics of this game, and the prototype of "Monark" was born. I believe that we were able to successfully fuse the authentic dark world view with the modern essence. >I would like to ask the development staff of this game what they think of this game. I understand why Mr. Ito, Mr. Suzuki, and others are among the development staff of this work. (laughs) Hayashi: This is how the project started. I contacted Mr. Ito and Mr. Suzuki because I wanted to discuss the project with them. I could immediately tell that they both love "if...". I could feel their great enthusiasm. So I was very excited to be able to participate. Suzuki: As Ito-chan mentioned, both of us have a great love for the work. (laughs) I was excited to hear about the new and challenging essence of the current style and the "juvenile genus" system. It's amazing that we can do things now that we couldn't do when we were making games for the NES and Super Nintendo. I thought, "Wow, that's amazing." >I saw your name on the list of collaborators. How did Mr. Nishitani get involved? Hayashi: I wanted to add a unique diagnosis to the game. Mr. Suzuki introduced me to Mr. Nishitani, and I asked him to help me with this project. Nishitani: The most enjoyable part of making games for me was thinking up new systems. However, since the end of the 1990s, I've been required to think of stories that fit existing systems, so I had to stay away from the world of games. However, Mr. Hayashi only told me that he wanted to create a system using psychological testing. When I heard about the plan for "Monark", I realized that the core of the game was based on an Adlerian (psychologist) worldview. So I said, "Okay, let's do it!" for the first time in a long time. I was really excited. Hayashi: I have a lot of sympathy for the philosopher Nietzsche's ideas, and the basis of this work is also close to his ideas. Mr. Nishitani said, "It's very Adlerian." After Mr. Nishitani told me that I was Adlerian, I realized that Adler was influenced by Nietzsche. I was strongly convinced. >The last one was Masuko-san, and with all these members participating, I could think of no one else to ask for background music but Masuko-san. Hayashi: The music is unique. For example, I wanted to hear that rock music during battle in this work, so I asked him to do it. Masuko: I had heard from Mr. Yamanaka (Takuya Yamanaka, the producer of "Caligula 2") that he would be contacting me. So I actually got in touch with him. When I met them, I found out that they were very passionate people (laughs). At first, I wondered if I was the right person for the job, but then Hayashi said, "I like the songs Masuko wrote." I was even nominated, so I had to accept it. Hayashi: I insisted that I wanted to hear "Masuko-tune". Masuko: No, no, I could only do "Masuko-tune". Suzuki: You're pretty good at everything. Masuko: I can't do everything. >Everyone felt the enthusiasm of Mr. Hayashi and Mr. Takano, and decided to participate. Hayashi: I can't thank you enough. There was an interesting chemical reaction not only with you, but also with other creators. We've been able to develop with an ideal team. >Ito-san, are you writing the main storyline? Ito: I'm in charge of the settings and dialogues of the students at the school. I asked Mr. Hayashi to write the main scenario. I've been checking and giving advice. >Oh, I see. I saw Hayashi-san's name in the scenario section, but I thought that Mr. Ito was the person in charge. Hayashi: I had originally planned to ask Mr. Ito to write the main scenario. I had no intention of writing anything. However, during our meetings and dinners, I realized that I was like the two of you at the time. I told them that I wanted to become a game creator who could write scenarios as well as cut specifications. One day, during a brainstorming session at a scenario meeting, I showed the two of them a draft of the plot. They liked it and said, "We think you can write it, and we'll check and supervise". So I did. Suzuki: The concept of the main scenario was finalized during the scenario meeting. I thought that Mr. Hayashi would be able to move the characters better. I thought it would be better for Mr. Hayashi, who is also the director, to take on the challenge. Ito: In the scenario meeting, it was mentioned that we needed a story about 100 students in order to make the school a living stage. It was decided that I would be in charge of their story. At first, I was optimistic, but then I realized that if I didn't focus on it, it would be very difficult. (laughs) (Continued in my next post)

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.

Aesthetics of female character designs/models in Japanese-made video games.

>Leotards >Booty shorts >Dresses >Latex suits >Schoolgirl outfits These aesthetics seems to be seen in various Japanese-made video games on how they make their female characters. Not that I'm getting tired of it, I find them very attractive and not going to lie, they make them so beautiful that I'm considering it very pleasant to look at while the world is being forced to accept that being ugly is beautiful because of "realism".

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.

Warcraft 3: Reforged was botched because of internal fights at Blizzard and financial mismanagement

https://archive.is/KJRNt >Blizzard Entertainment's disastrous remake of the classic video game Warcraft III last year was the result of mismanagement and financial pressures, according to newly revealed documents and people with knowledge of the failed launch. The release also reflected Blizzard’s significant cultural changes in recent years, as corporate owner Activision Blizzard Inc. has pushed the developer to cut costs and prioritize its biggest titles. >Warcraft III: Reforged was a long-awaited reimagining of one of Blizzard’s most popular games. Blizzard President J. Allen Brack called the original title “monumentally important” when Reforged was announced in 2018. The company promised “over four hours of updated in-game cutscenes and re-recorded voice-overs.” But the project was never a priority for the company, in part because a remaster of an old strategy game had little chance of becoming the type of billion-dollar product that Activision wanted, according to the people, who asked not to be named because they weren’t authorized to speak on company matters. With Blizzard pressured to focus on its biggest franchises, Warcraft III: Reforged couldn’t get the ambitious budget that its leaders wanted. >When Warcraft III: Reforged was released on Jan. 28, 2020, it was widely panned, earning a 59 of 100 on the review aggregation website Metacritic. The game was buggy and missing the components that Blizzard had promised earlier, including the updated cutscenes — sequences that develop the story line but aren't part of game play — and re-recorded voice-overs. The remake even lacked features that the original Warcraft III had contained in 2002, such as a “ladder” system that ranked competitive players. Blizzard also had disabled the original version of the game on its digital platform, so the inferior remake was the only version that fans could easily play. >In the weeks after launch, Blizzard promised to update the game and add some of those features over time, but 18 months later, they are still nowhere to be found. >At the time, the company apologized for the launch and said it had chosen to backtrack on updating the cinematics because “we did not want the in-game cutscenes to steer too far from the original game.” But documentation produced after its release, as well as interviews with 11 people who worked on or close to the game, indicate that Reforged was actually rescoped due to budget cuts and internal arguments over the game’s direction. >Warcraft III: Reforged was Blizzard’s first bad game (lmao) and another blemish for a company that has faced multiple internal challenges in recent years, including high-level departures like Morhaime and disputes over low wages. Blizzard also faced widespread criticism and calls for a boycott after banning a player who . This week, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing sued Activision Blizzard over claims of harassment and discrimination, accusing the company of facilitating a sexist culture. >Small teams like Classic Games, which worked on remakes including Reforged, were all but ignored in favor of potential billion-dollar games like Diablo IV and Overwatch 2. Blizzard even canceled some of its other projects in favor of the proven hits. Eight months after the release of Warcraft III: Reforged, the Classic Games team was dismantled. >Blizzard chose to plow ahead with a premature release of Warcraft III: Reforged largely because it had already taken pre-orders from players, according to people familiar with the decision. The company couldn’t bump the game too much more without potentially being forced to send out refunds and risking that fans wouldn’t buy the game again. >In notes from an internal postmortem of the game reviewed by Bloomberg, developers on Warcraft III: Reforged acknowledged this issue. "We took pre-orders when we knew the game wasn't ready yet," they said, adding later that the company needed to “resist the urge to ship an unfinished product because of financial pressure.” >In the beginning, the Classics Game team had ambitious plans. Throughout 2017 and 2018, developers revamped the game’s script and re-recorded all the dialogue. The goal was to rewrite scenes and flesh out characters to align them with the lore of World of Warcraft, the massively popular online game that had been evolving the story of the franchise for the previous decade and a half. David Fried, a designer on the original Warcraft III who was briefly brought back to work on Reforged, said in an email that “there were things in the works for Warcraft III: Reforged that would have absolutely revitalized a classic game.” >But behind the scenes, things weren’t going well. Members of the team began worrying that they had promised more than they could deliver. Remastering Warcraft III was more complicated than their previous remake, StarCraft, thanks to its three-dimensional models. The team was small, the production was disorganized and the amount of work in front of them was daunting. It had taken months to revamp one of Warcraft III’s levels; now they would have to do the same for dozens more. >Morale plummeted. Rob Bridenbecker, the head of the Classic Games team, was known for an aggressive managerial style, for taking frequent trips out of the country during production and a tendency to give unrealistic deadlines. Miscommunication became a serious issue across the team, as did arguments over the scope and art style, according to people familiar with the matter. Bridenbecker, who left Blizzard in April, declined to comment. >“We have developers who have dealt with exhaustion, anxiety, depression and more for a year now," the developers later said in the postmortem. "Many have lost trust in the team and this company. Many players have also lost trust, and the launch certainly didn't help an already rough year for Blizzard's image." I cut a lot of the article out because it's huge and the OP doesn't have enough space, go read it yourself for the full thing but this is the rough outline. There was something fishy about WC3R, but I never expected the team to know the game was bad and ship it anyway. That's a Randy Pitchford-tier move. Can you believe this was once considered one of the best companies in the industry?

Repeated elements in videos you find that you either like and hate, title's self explanatory. Things I like: Being able to allocate your stats/skill points, Power ups/Super modes, and Learning news skills, abilities, unlocking new items from defeating enemies. Things I hate: Elemental Damage systems that only increase damage, Hopeless bosses fights, Fetch Quests, and pointless stats systems that don't alter gameplay and exist to pad out time and add grind.

Activision Blizzard Sued by California Over Allegations of Sexual Harassment

Following a two-year investigation by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, the state has filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard for fostering a "frat boy" culture in which female employees are allegedly subjected to unequal pay and sexual harassment. According to the complaint, filed Tuesday in the Los Angeles Superior Court, female employees make up around 20% of the Activision workforce, and are subjected to a “pervasive frat boy workplace culture,” including “cube crawls,” in which male employees “drink copious amounts of alcohol as they crawl their way through various cubicles in the office and often engage in inappropriate behavior toward female employees.” The suit also points to a female Activision employee who took her own life while on a company trip with her male supervisor. The employee had been subjected to intense sexual harassment prior to her death, including having nude photos passed around at a company holiday party, the complaint says. Honestly, I can't say I'm surprised as that's usually what you get when you hire a team of "woke and progressive" feminist men to create your products. They're all thirsty opportunists trying to get some sex in one way or another. They don't actually believe in concepts like "diversity and inclusion" and basically act like fucking monsters behind our backs. The women who usually support these bad actors are opportunist sluts thinking they can make a shitload of cash while fucking this one guy with a high paycheck. Not saying that there aren't women in the industry, because there are, however the people pushing progressive politics are absolute scum and should be looked into.

Who is buying a PS5?

Pretty straight forward of a thread, and subject worth investigating. As of June, Sony has announced that over 9 million PS5 consoles have been sold: https://archive.vn/XyXFK But, one question is not being answered: WHO'S BUYING THIS SHIT?!? The "semi-conductor" shortage has caused there to be a massive delay in shipping PS5 systems: https://archive.vn/3dtBc And, what's even stranger is when looking at the context of other markets. For example, just in regards to video games, systems and titles as recent as the 3DS: https://archive.vn/hdhCc To as old as the NES: https://archive.vn/sflRQ For over a year: https://archive.vn/5Suic And with all systems, have shot up in price: https://archive.vn/3NagO That's in addition to other markets, like automobiles, have skyrocket in price as well due to the chip shortage: https://archive.vn/fqGFa So, simply by going by metrics, the fact that the PS5 is "so successful" doesn't sound even close to being authentic. Especially with reports coming out about how the system isn't even selling in it's home country: https://archive.vn/hnRbu And, that the game sales are nowhere near matching console sales numbers: https://archive.vn/GlSdn With all reports coming in of all said game sales happening in sudden surges: https://archive.vn/Eo1ZC That barely outmatch the console's launch period when people were blaming a lack of game sales on scalpers: https://archive.vn/UlGen So, where are all the sales coming from? Who is buying the system? Is, there even a possibility that Sony is lying about the system's success?

Nickelodeon Smash Clone announced

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl which is basically just a Smash Bros clone has been announced for everything but PC (which is super gay). The current roster is as follows: >Michelangelo (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) >Leonardo (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) >Nigel Thornberry (The Wild Thornberrys) >Powdered Toast Man (Ren & Stimpy) >SpongeBob SquarePants (SpongeBob SquarePants) >Sandy Cheeks (SpongeBob SquarePants) >Patrick Star (SpongeBob SquarePants) >Oblina (Aaahh!!! Real Monsters) >Lucy Loud (The Loud House) >Lincoln Loud (The Loud House) >Helga (Hey Arnold!) >Reptar (Rugrats) >Zim (Invader Zim) >Danny Phantom (Danny Phantom) The game will also feature 20 levels, and will include single player and multiplayer modes, with local and online support for up to four players. You'll also be able to unlock new moves for every fighter, as well as earn bonus content for an in-game gallery. Honestly, baring some obvious picks missing, the game looks alright. I'm just hoping we get some random ass pick's like when Cartoon Network's smash clone had fucking Captain Planet despite being on TBS rather than CN. Here's hoping for Red Ranger, Goku, Beetlejuice, and Drake & Josh (although that last one probably isn't happening). That said I hope the game itself is actually good in 1v1 gameplay. While the trailer looks fine for 4 player multiplayer, it doesn't really give an idea of how the characters move or what their roster is supposed to be. Additionally the whole "unlock moves for every fighter" shtick is a bit unsettling for me. Still, here's hoping for the best.

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.

I've also been playing a bit of the Arcade mode in Custom Robo as well as the campaigns for both Slave Zero and Metal Wolf Chaos.

Unteralterbach

It's been a very long time since I've seen one of these, and since controversial discussion about the game is being deleted elsewhere for being too "offtopic", I'd say it's needed. Once again the crux of the issue is the girls in the game are based on 3DPD, and that raises some questions. I'd say making a sexual parody of a 3DPD child, regardless of how off-model and cartoony, is by default a sexualization of a child, and a strong argument the creator is a pedo. In Fuchur's case, I'd say this especially evident since one of the girls is a known child model. However, since the girls are off-model and cartoony, you don't have to be a pedo to like them, and can do so even in complete ignorant bliss as to the origins of their designs. Also, post lewds.

Retro Studios’ Zelda starring Sheik was in development

I found this bit of news from a friend and figured it was worth sharing. Basically Retro Studios was making a game based around Zelda's alter-ego, Sheik before it got canned. According to the information, the studio was commissioned with this title between 2005 and 2008 and would give us a playable Sheik from Ocarina of Time, although it never passed the pre-production stage. Quote from the artist who worked on the project. >Old storage hard-drive diving! (2005 - 2008) >More stuff from a long lost cancelled Zelda (Sheik) action/jrpg that never went beyond pre-production... >Really want to return to these some day to finish a few. Zelda games have wacky weird stuff, and this game was setting out to be ten times weirder. I've never in my life worked contract before. I wouldn't know any details about contract work. Have always worked full-time salary at developer studios. Sometimes random freelance for fun projects outside of games. But I'm completely pulling out of that game career until there can be some real solutions to the exploitation, criminality, and abuse that I see my peers put through...

If there is a game, expect it to be complete shit. https://archive.is/3J8fz DeepL: >In 2021, the Persona series will have sold over 15 million units worldwide. >I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to all of you who have watched over and supported us over the years. >In September, the Persona series will finally celebrate its 25th anniversary. >To express our gratitude to all of you, we will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Persona series for one year from this September 2021 to next fall 2022. >PERSONA 25th Anniversary YEAR, we are preparing a lot of fun. >We'll be announcing a variety of 25th Anniversary items, events, collaborations, and of course, game information. >We'll be announcing a variety of special events, collaborations, and of course, game information. >Please stay tuned.

Netflix getting into gaming, starting with mobileshit.

Netflix revealed that it's gonna test run itself in the video game market with mobile shit, the games will be included with users’ Netflix subscriptions. Here's the exact quote from the company. >We’re also in the early stages of further expanding into games, building on our earlier efforts around interactivity (eg, Black Mirror Bandersnatch) and our Stranger Things games. We view gaming as another new content category for us, similar to our expansion into original films, animation and unscripted TV. Games will be included in members’ Netflix subscription at no additional cost similar to films and series. Initially, we’ll be primarily focused on games for mobile devices. We’re excited as ever about our movies and TV series offering and we expect a long runway of increasing investment and growth across all of our existing content categories, but since we are nearly a decade into our push into original programming, we think the time is right to learn more about how our members value games. Personally I don't see anything of note coming from this, it'll likely flop like Stadia and Onlive before it. The only reason Microsoft has been successful is because the cloud is more of an accessory than a main service, and even then they allow you to download the games rather than just streaming them off an android device. As you know 5G wasn't exactly all it was hyped up to be, and 4G LTE is usually more reliable nowadays. Still, it's interesting news that these big companies like Google, Netflix and Amazon seem to want a piece of that gaming pie, for better or worse.

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?

Lost Judgment May be Last Game in Series; Talent Agency Reportedly Block Steam Version

Japanese entertainment news website Nikkan Taishu (DeepL) report that according to their sources; the talent agency Johnny & Associates had disagreements over what platform to release the game on. Johnny is the agency Takuya Kimura is signed up to, the voice and likeness of main character Takayuki Yagami. Nikkan Taishi claim that despite the success of Steam, Johnny was not willing to support the PC platform. The outlet questions that as agencies are protective over the rights of their celebrities, could Steam being connected to the internet been seen as an issue. Being unable to produce the game on Steam, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio will reportedly have a difficulties, and will end the series there. The studio had previously managed to bring the entire Yakuza series to PC (if you include the Kiwame remakes over the originals). While Sega had began “evaluating” simultaneous PC launches for the series (with Yakuza: Like a Dragon launching PC and Xbox versions a little after PlayStation); the original Judgment had no PC release. Basically they're afraid of nude mods. https://archive.vn/I3nSZ

So now that Mind Control Delete is part of the series, what do you guys think of Superhot games? I'm having a lot of fun with Mind Control Delete, especially that there is actually shit to do with actual mechanics besides what was in the original game. I like the new enemies as well as the special skills. Katana summon is definitely my favourite, though the original Superhot mind takeover is pretty cool though. Charge is fucking lame. Mind Control Delete seems to be superior to original in every way.

Why Dragon Ball Heroes Ultimate Mission X is the best Dragon Ball game in 3DS?

Because: .- It is a Dragon Ball Heroes game .- The game has more than 3000 cards (yes, more than the PC Version, but the PC Version is cool too) .- The gameplay is very similar to the arcade (but the cards are digital) The only bad point is the game is only in Japanese, but the game is very enjoyable.

FAVOURITE LEVEL THEME

What's your favourite level theme anons? You know, you've got your platformers/jrpgs/action games, and they've all got themed levels. You've got your beginner-friendly "grass" themed levels with fairly flat terrain and easy enemies. Then the "forest" level where it's usually a maze of some kind because Zelda did the Lost Woods so why can't we? There's the "mountain" theme which has more platforming and tougher enemies. Fire levels with DOT tiles so you better fucking run Water levels where you run out of oxygen and you get PTSD from the fucking music as your hold your breath in real life to see if you can last as long as the character on screen Desert levels with quick-sand and sandstorms to get lost in Ice levels with slippery floors (these are almost always shit), and often Christmas themed Sewer maze levels because that's never been done before Spooky haunted mansion/castle level that is less about combat and more about solving tricky puzzles and tolerating jumpscares, usually halloween themed Don't forget the beach levels which are usually a mix of water, cliffs, sand and fun random mini-activities like volleyball or something. Is there a particular theme that is comfy for you? When you were playing a game and you got to that area and you just went "aww yeah, this is it".

Your Turn To Die

In order to stop spamming the NEO : TWEWY thread, and to discuss the latest release, Chapter 3 Part 1-B(yes B, it's finally been released) I decided to make a separate thread for the jap indie game called Your Turn To Die - Death by Majority. >What's this game VN? It's a free jap indie game, made by one guy in RPG Maker(however it doesn't play nor feels like an RPG maker game, as the entire game is in first person perspective and it works more like a point and click adventure game), about a group of random people selected for a Death Game. The gimmick of this death game, is that there are several rounds, and in each round they have to vote who gets to be killed(thus the name, Death by Majority), if they refuse to participate, they get killed as well. However some participants get a special role, such as Keymaster, that if chosen will have everybody killed, and Sacrifice, who will die if not voted for, but if voted for, then everybody , but the sacrifice will die. As such in each round there will be at least 2 people will die(Sacrifice, and the person who got the most votes), making the deaths much more involved than in something like Danganronpa, since you actually have to choose who gets to get killed, and in Chapter 2, you get to have the deciding vote, so (You) are the one who gets to kill someone. >So it's just like Danganronpa I admit it's heavily inspired, by the game, however the characters and writing make even the first game(which I personally I enjoyed) look like a complete joke and a meme game in comparison. The deaths aren't as comical or over-the-top like in Danga, and it's not afraid of pulling any punches. You will feel those deaths, and they will hunt you, as this becomes a game mechanic in Part 2, mainly dealing with your PTSD. >Where can I get the game You can get a translated version here https://vgperson.com/games/yourturntodie.htm From what I gather the translation is accurate, and all changes(such as names that were puns in japanese had to be changed in English to make other puns, kinda like in Ace Attorney) are justified on the page. You can also play the game in browser mode. >I heard this game is poss and there is a tranny in it The game isn't any more posed than your typical japanese game, and the one possible tranny, you can get it killed and most likely get a better ending >Wait so the game is unfinished, is this an early access game? The game has been released in chunks ever since 2017, each chunk being roughly 3-4 hours(I recently replayed it), and right now the penultimate chunk has just been released so next year the game should be finished. It took me roughly 17 hours to complete it, and this was my second playthrough, since my last one from 2 years ago. Think of each chunk as a chapter in an Ace Attorney game or Danganronpa. If you really wish to play the game once it's finished, then I(or someone lese) will make a thread once it's done. However, I should note, that the author doesn't rewrite previous chapters, instead focusing on releasing the next one, so you don't have to worry about that. Each new release also gives you an optional "previously on" section for a quick reminder of what had happened. Please keep in mind that this thread will probably mainly focus on the events of the final chapter, and while some anons will use the spoiler tag, there will be plenty of spoilers, so I suggest you avoid this thread, until you finished the game. On the other hand, even with knowing all the spoilers it's still an enjoyable ride. >Wait Chapter 3 Part 1-B actually got released? Yes it got released, you can play it either in browser mode or download the game. Regarding Chapter 2 who died Reko/Alice and who did you vote for Sou/Kanna? With that out of the way, I will post my thoughts on the latest release in my next post, will use the spoiler thags, and ask all the otehr anons to use them as much as they think it's necessary.

Avellone Associate Claims Accuser Never Said Anything Negative About “Con-Boyfriend;” “Clearly” Sought Relationship

For those unaware, the cunt who made fake allegations of Avellon drugging her for sex has been found to be a lying manipulative piece of shit. Niche Gamer has a good piece covering the topic and I just wanted to take a few bits from it and then archive the article for those who don't want to give them clicks. >Barrows allegedly stated that she had “made out with Chris the first night there.” In alleged screengrabs of Twitter DMs between Johnson and Barrows from October 30th, she uses Johnson’s description of Avellone as a “con-boyfriend,” and describes him in complimentary terms. She yet again describes Avellone as a “complete gentleman.” >Johnson proposes that Barrows had no negative feelings for Avellone, and was “clearly” seeking a relationship with him. He also notes that on November 23rd, 2012, his group interviewed Avellone on Skype with Barrows and other present. >In deleted 2014 tweet (prior to Avellone’s relationship with Jackie) Barrows states surprise that she had not experienced any abuse or harassment as a female gamer and cosplayer; when such incidents seemed to be “rampant.” https://archive.vn/D7Wne

Memelands thread?

We had a lot of these on old 8chan, I have no idea if there are enough anons still interested in talking about it. Shooting of the Borderlands movie just finished, I cannot wait to see how much of a disaster it is. It seems to be based on the first game judging by the cast and characters. Did I mention it's live action? Because it's live action, I don't know who's fucking idea that was. If there was ever a game to have the perfect fit into animated movie, it's Borderlands. How are they even going to emulate that art style? It's going to look so weird with all the cartoony props and sets next to real people. Going away from that, how was BL3? I've heard next to nothing about it even though it came out less than 2 years ago. Obligatory >fuck Gearbox >fuck Randy Pitchford >fuck Anthony Burch

"Now Every Single Activision Studio Works On Call Of Duty"

>Yesterday, Activision-owned studio Toys For Bob announced that it was going to provide development support for the latest season of Call of Duty Warzone. The studio had previously worked on its own games, such as last year’s fantastic Crash Bandicoot 4, but has now effectively been consumed by the ever-growing monster that is Call of Duty. With that move, all nine studios directly owned by Activision are part of the Call of Duty machine in some capacity. >Toys For Bob isn’t the first studio Activision has tossed into the never-ending war-game talent blender. Here’s the breakdown of what the studios the company currently owns have done with the massive franchise: ·Toys For Bob is working on Warzone Season 3 content. ·Raven Software has been a support studio for CoD since 2010. ·Activision Shanghai worked on Call of Duty Online. ·Demonware does server support for Call of Duty. ·Former Transformers dev High Moon Studios helps support Call of Duty. ·Beenox has been working on CoD since Black Ops III. ·Collectively, Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer have been taking turns developing Call of Duty games for the last decade. >Even parts of Activision that you wouldn’t expect to be involved with Call of Duty are in fact involved with Call of Duty. Blizzard, part of the larger mega-company Activision Blizzard, hasn’t developed a CoD game (yet) but it does sell them on its own digital store. King, the mobile game giant Activision bought for $5.9 billion back in 2016, was working on a Call of Duty game for phones. (Already-launched Call of Duty mobile games have been developed by other, non-Activision studios.) >It’s hard to watch as talented devs part of successful and long-running studios get sent to the Call of Duty salt mines, unable to make anything unique or new. It hurts even more when it’s a studio with its own history of great games. For example, Raven Software is the studio behind Heretic, Hexen, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, and more great stuff. However, since 2010 Raven has been stuck as a support studio for Call of Duty, often assisting on DLC. I don’t doubt the studio is still filled with skilled creators working hard every day. But I can’t help but wonder what those devs could be doing if they were free from Call of Duty and allowed to make something new. >Of course, with Activision and its obscenely rich CEO, sticking around as a Call of Duty support studio is often the best-case scenario. The likely alternative is your studio is shut down or absorbed into another studio within the publisher, leading to massive layoffs. This happened to Neversoft, Grey Matter Interactive, Bizarre Creations, Shaba Games, and many more. >Even if a studio is allowed to live on as a cog in the CoD machine, it doesn’t save them from layoffs, with some Toys For Bob employees seeming to confirm a layoff occurred at the studio following the recent release of Crash 4. Toys For Bob’s future doesn’t seem bright. It could live on for another decade, helping support Call of Duty, like Raven Software. Or it might get shut down after a few years on the CoD train, like Neversoft. My heart goes out to the staff at Toys For Bob and to those who were let go. >I’ve enjoyed Call of Duty games over the years, but it’s become harder and harder to play the newest entries and the ongoing Warzone mode as studio after studio is sacrificed to the franchise to keep it going. Call of Duty’s yearly release schedule, paired with each game’s increasing size and complexity, has created a superstorm that seems to suck up resources, people, and money faster and faster. And now Activision has no more studios to throw at it, because it’s already dun thrown them all in. >Will Kotick and his millions go hunting for a new studio to purchase soon? It seems when Activision buys up a new studio, an invisible timer starts, counting down the days until that new studio is either kicked overboard to die or gets “lucky” and lands on Call of Duty island, destined to work on military manshoots until the heat death of the universe. https://archive.is/0KkGG Cawa Doody is a fucking plague on the industry

Horror Games thread

Let's talk about horror games in general, as I don't see an actual horror thread besides a very specific question thread. What kind of horror games are you guys playing recently? I've been looking through several shitty indie collections like the Dread X collection looking for something interesting. I would really like to play some longer horror game, but ironically one that is perhaps a bit calmer and more slow paced. I want something that is dark and spooky but also in a way relaxing. First thing that comes to my mind is Scratches which didn't build its horror off of jumpscares as it was mostly an adventure game, but I already played it.

/gameclub/ Thread - Three Wonders

It's a thread where we play a game, and talk about it, like a leather club. Try out something you might have never played, share your thoughts, compare your score sizes, and have fun. GAME: The votes were ignored since the former OP is taking a break from the exhausting job of pressing keys and making words appear on your screen. So I took it upon myself to pick something good and worthwhile, that being Capcom's coin-op classic Three Wonders >Three Wonders, released in Japan as Wonder 3 (ワンダー3), is a 1991 video game developed and published by Capcom and originally released for the arcades using the Capcom Play System (CPS1) platform. The game is a collection of three related titles: Midnight Wanderers: Quest for the Chariot, known in Japan as Roosters: Chariot wo Sagashite (ルースターズ ~チャリオットを探して~), Chariot: Adventure through the Sky, known in Japan as Chariot: Tenkuu he no Tabi (チャリオット ~天空への旅~)), and Don't Pull (ドンプル); a platformer, a scrolling shooter, and a puzzle video game respectively. It was ported in 1998 to the PlayStation and Sega Saturn and published by Xing Entertainment. Three Wonders was also included in the 2006 Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox and Capcom Classics Collection Remixed on the PSP. FUN FACT: "The “resurrected” SNES game Nightmare Busters (made in 1995 but not released until 2013) by Arcade Zone, starring a couple of leprechauns, appears to be heavily inspired by Midnight Wanderers, down to the graphic style, fairy tale setting (with a darker spin), enemies popping up from the ground and similar bonuses, domino tiles instead of cards.

What changed in gaming over the past two decades?

I happened upon Microsoft's E3 press conference from 2004 while finding something to listen to at work and, to my surprise, the conference actually sounded awesome: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=PHKeUq_GA_M It got me hyped to play the game presented there (Some I actually currently have, but have yet to play) and made me want to look forward to what could be potentially done with what they were advertising as far as the tech, software, and game demos. Then, I immediately compared that conference to last week: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=1YnVzOA2wNs And, the presentation is almost night and day. Even for games in the same series that were presented 17 years ago and last week. Compare what was presented with Halo, Forza, Xbox Live, even third party games like Battlefield. What the Hell happened to that attitude from over a decade ago?

Norman Reedus and the Funky Fetus: Director’s Cut Launches September 24 on PlayStation 5

Kojima has just announced a release date for "Fedex: The Game: Arcade Edition", along with some of the new features coming to the game. The new trailer confirms the features coming to the game. Along with being remastered for PlayStation 5, this includes new story missions, new foes, and new combat abilities. The latter means improved melee combat, the maser gun, mounted machine guns, and a firing range. There will also be new ways to deliver goods; such as a cargo catapult, a support skeleton to carry more weight, a new “buddy bot” to carry supplies or Sam himself, and ramps to jump vehicles off of to cross chasms. There is even a new racing minigame called Fragile Circuit. Honestly I didn't like the first game so much, so I don't really see how these improvements will save the game. Still, for those who actually liked the game, here you go.

Try out something you might have never played, share your thoughts, compare scores, and have fun. GAME: The vote was a tossup again so pretend your mom let you and your brother pick out one game to rent but since he's older he chose the one that looked cooler. It's Cave Story for PC! >Cave Story (Japanese: 洞窟物語, Hepburn: Dōkutsu Monogatari) is a 2004 Metroidvania Yes, that has a Wikipedia page platform-adventure game for Microsoft Windows. It was developed over five years by Japanese developer Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya in his free time. Cave Story features 2D platform mechanics and is reminiscent of the games Amaya played in his youth, such as Metroid and Castlevania (both released in 1986). After its initial self-published release, the game slowly gained popularity on the internet. It received widespread critical acclaim for many polished aspects of its design, such as its compelling characters, setting, story, and gameplay. Cave Story is considered by many as the quintessential indie game because of its one-person development team and influence on the gaming world. >Independent developer Nicalis worked with Amaya to port the game to WiiWare and DSiWare in 2010. An enhanced version, Cave Story+, was released for Steam in November 2011, and the original game was released for the Nintendo 3DS in October 2012 with added content. A 3D remake of the game, titled Cave Story 3D, was developed by Nicalis and published by NIS America for the Nintendo 3DS in November 2011. A port of Cave Story+ for the Nintendo Switch was released in June 2017. >The fast-paced gameplay of Cave Story revolves around Quote, a robot who wakes up suffering amnesia and who must explore and blast his way through cavernous areas in order to figure out his backstory and escape from the cave. The character gains access to new areas as he powers up his weapons by collecting triangular experience crystals and solves various platforming puzzles. Quote speaks to non-player characters scattered around the game world in order to learn more about the world and its inhabitants. (via Wikipedia) FUN FACT: In beta versions of the game, all of the enemies were shaped like bars of soap. This eventually influenced the design of Balrog, who is (despite popular belief) not a toaster. ANGRY FACT: Despite the original game being freely distributed by Pixel, after acquiring its publishing Nicalis has issued cease and desist letters and DMCA takedowns on fan projects utilizing its code. DATE: Even though your brother got to choose the game your mom's gonna be real pissed if you don't have it back by July 11th! Can you beat the game by then?

Switch Pro Rumors believable?

Do people actually believe in all these Switch Pro rumors? I highly doubt games would really scale in 4K, the system having an OLED screen, the system itself using a new Tegra processor, etc. The best we're going to get is probably a Switch with a more modified Tegra X1, a dock with extra chips to upscale games to 1440p, and maybe a better frame-rate in some games. It might not even be a portable system considering the Switch Lite is sole portable and the OG Switch is an in-between. I can be wrong though. I'm considering getting a Switch lite since I the OG Switch is too big for me and is a terrible home console. If I want to play at home, I'll stick to my PC. The rumors for the Switch Pro is making me second guess buying a Lite, worrying the system would no longer be support if the pro gets release. Could be like a New 3DS situation but who knows.

Pulsar: Lost Colony

It finally hit 1.0 after all this time. I don't know if any of you faggots were around when we used to play on 8chan but I remember years ago an anon making a thread for this game. Since then it would pop up once in a while and anons would have fun with it. One of the perks of the game is that it was pretty easy to pirate, so easy that I'm just going to drop the humblebundle torrents in a vola page and you faggots can have at it. Yes it has Linux. and Mac I ended up getting it a few years ago because at that point I had put a shitload of hours into it and it also made it easier to drop the files for anons to play with. I remember when it was just the Ancient Sentry for a final boss and the retarded bugs that would happen when it would follow you through the warp, encountering the infected with anons for the first time. I dunno, fond memories. Enough Blog posting though, time to get to the point. WHAT IS PULSAR? Pulsar Lost Colony is a game where you and 4 other retards do you best to find the lost colony and not die in space. You choose between 5 different classes each with a different role on the ship that you choose at the start. You do missions, some found and some given, and eventually try to fine enough data fragments to find the Lost Colony. GAMEPLAY Five classes Captain: You make the rules, buy shit, pick missions, and are the boss. Pilot: You fly, pro tip. The bottom of the ship takes less systems damage but the gunner will whine he can't see. Also ramming is a viable combat strategy and they just added a boost you can use for a temporary burst of speed. Use this information wisely. Weapons Specialist: Biggest dick on the ship, by default you can use the main gun which is large anti ship cannon. It can also shoot missiles. You also get perks that increase your damage with weapons and should lead the charge in combat. However a wise Weapons Specialist will let his team go first though an get killed to see how dangerous is it. Engineer: You will get bitched at by captain to fix things when it gets damaged while trying to keep the engine cool, getting yelled at by Science to load more fuel pods for their programs, and then forgetting you turned off the engine safety and are now melting down.I actually do recommend always disabling the safeties. It allows you to ride the engine down to the red line and prevent your ships engine from hitting automatic shutdown. Very useful in combat. Scientist: You scan for baddies, manage sensors, heal the team, manage electronic warfare, and yell at Engineering to load you fuelpods. Your programs recharge between jumps but if you want them them to charge while in combat, and you will, the engineer need to manually load fuel. You can somewhat cover roles between each class but they all have specialized skills that help with their job like the engineer having skills that increase coolant efficiency. You choose your starting ship which determines your faction and what kinda of quests you will expect to see. Choosing the Cuckloinal Union means that they will give you jobs but you can politely refuse with a minor rep loss. Choosing W.D means you signed the fuck up and is says here in your contact that you will do so many mission so you better get to it. Alliance of Gentlemen enjoy extortion and robbery. Then there is the Fluffy Biscuit company, better meet you quota for sales or else You jump from system to system by charging your warp drive and aiming at the next star system. IF there are enemies you will have to deal with them or run, which means charging the drive mid combat which can be an issue if you are being pounded into the dirt. There is an emergency jump you can use that will be blind. Bad things can and will happen if you use it though. There are also planets with missions and a few have some hidden areas with some loot. When you die you will respawn on the ship but the longer you live the more health you get giving you an incentive to not run in and eat shit. You can choose between 3 races, each with their own perks. Choosing anything but robot is for fags but I guess I'll the meatniggers too. Humans can be revived once per jump. Actually pretty useful but take all environment damage. Sylvassi are suit wearing aliens that are immune to no O2 and cold. They can also cloak which the AI is actually pretty good at using and ambushing you with. They take more heat damage and have shit armor Robots are immune to all Hazards except rads and can be repaired with the repair tool. They have a high carry cap but also have the lowest base health. Oh yeah, the fucking aids that is infected and chaos level. So as you make more jumps the chaos level of the sector will grow. This means the infected begin to spread which is a problem because they are very hard to deal with even at the end game. This is supposed to encourage you to keep moving and can be adjusted in the settings. Doing things like killing repair stations and warp gate crews for free passage and gibs increases is faster. The sector IS going to shit and you are on a timer. There is a bit more but you can discover that for yourself if you decide to play.

The factory that produces the erasers used by the White House has stopped production; any attempts to contact the factory are met with bizarre puzzles. Tethers must visit the factory in Scoggins, Minnesota and get it running again. (via Wikipedia) >In Puzzle Agent, all advancement in the plot is done by solving series of puzzles that appear in the story (and the game also offer some entirely optional ones), which are accompanied by a hint system, accessible by chewing pieces of used bubble gum (with the maximum number of three hints per puzzle), matching the non-sense stylized atmosphere of the story composed by cartoonish artwork. The puzzles are logic based, featuring usually a challenge like moving pieces through a board, solving logic problems or breaking a code. (via Moby Games) Basically a point-and-click puzzle game in the style of Professor Layton with a much different and darker (but still charming) tone. FUN FACT: Much of the game's settings and designs are based on other works by Graham Annable, the game's artist. DATE: Starting today (Monday, June 28) take a trip to Scoggins and see if you can get back by Sunday, July 4. Hints are for pussies. Though I'm sure anons would like to help with solving puzzles.

Translation General

Hey, so I noticed there is not general thread for translations. So here is one to discuss and post your own translations or links to them. Ideally include the original for comparisons sake. I'll start with a article I translated about Halo 3 from a Czech magazine.

魔法少女 Magical Girl Games

I love magical girls and would like to play more magical girl themed games. Unfortunately there are barely any decent ones and most of them are just puzzle games, shmups or VNs which don't really scratch that magical girl itch for me. Can you recommend me some? Niche fangames or rpgmaker games are fine. I think other girls with supernatural powers are also okay as long as they are cute and girly (a cute witch character for example) I will post some I know of or played. First one is Blue Reflection, it's a rather mediocre JRPG to be honest, but the OST is nice and the magical girl outfits are cute too.

Wasted art on shit games

A thread about wasted art assets in shit games. Featuring "Until We Die" This game really pissed me off. Super good Metal Slug tier art, but nothing else. At first I thought that the tutorial was a bit long and shit, but no, the game is a phone game, the tutorial is the game. This is a complete rip off of Kingdom with Metal Slug art. You run from left to right and build shit, recruit people, shoot xenos, and nothing else. First I thought that I was doing something wrong, because the game needed me to be in two places at once. If left and right sides get attacked, you are fucked. But this is by design, you are going to get killed and lose 30min to 1 hour of progresion just by a dice roll. I tried to put NPCs on one end, and secure the other end myself, but that was even worse. All my allies got killed by an artillery enemy. So, no, strategy is not an option here. And just a side note: You have a stamina donut that is a pixel by pixel copy from Zelda BOTW. I'm not shitting here. Funny thing about that stamina is that it takes literally minutes to fill. The stamina mechanic is the cherry on top of the shit cake that is this game. I hate this game with a force of an exterminatus, but cannot delete it from my HD, because they might "patch it" and the art is so fucking good. Do you have something similar. Insanely good art assets wasted on a shit game?

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.

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.

Farming Games

I've been wanting to play some farming games that date back to PS2-era graphics because I haven't really played farming games from that era, plus I like those old graphics in an odd way. The only Harvest Moon game I ever played was Friends of Mineral Town on GBA. Are pic-related worth playing, and if so which should I try first? If you know of any other farming games from that generation let me know.

Vidya elves.

what game has the best elves? I like Night elves in warcraft. They've got a very cool moon motif and i have wanted to fuck one since i was a small boy playing WoW. The elf from dragons crown is pretty cool even if she is the weakest in the game.

Dead Games

Some games are popular and successful, some games are disastrous and fail commercially... but other games outright die for one reason or another. Maybe the servers were finally killed leaving the game permanently offline. Perhaps the operating systems in modern use simply don't support the game's engine like they used to back in the 90's? Or if you're like some, the developers purposely ran the playerbase into the ground with awful balancing in the face of competition, a needless focus on cosmetics, and a greed toward monetizing what little reputation they had left on a half-assed sequel that failed instantly. The Culling is what I'm talking about, if you didn't realize. What other games do you know of that are demonstrably dead? Either functionally (servers no longer up, tech out of date or lost) or practically (no players left to engage with, ip/code sealed away by ownership or copyright)? Do you miss them? Would it be worth reviving the game or its franchise? Are some things simply better off dead?

Resident Evil Village

Things I hated. >the sexy tall bitch is the first boss and only appears for first few hours. later bosses are passable, but not as great as her >story got dumb as fuck with all the megacyte stuff towards the end. especially that retarded twist about Ethan >the gameplay gets too bang bang shooty like a Call of Duty game sometimes. this "horror" game hardly feels scary when you're mowing down hundreds of monsters

What is the deal with Halo?

Is it just me or did anyone else noticed how bad the Halo series actually is? Aside from the graphics and soundtrack it just feels like a gimped version of quake. Seriously half the missions(regardless of the game) make me feel like they are severely... "out of sync". You know like all the projectile weapons are meant to encourage you to go in aggressively forward while dodging through them but MC is just too slow to do that without dying instantly. Like when there is a section of a level that seems to want you to engage in some long range battle but the whole level does not have a single weapon that can accurately shoot across long distances. Or how on higher difficulties half the weapons deal basically no damage(a.k.a it takes a full clip to do anything with them). It makes me feel like I am playing some "worsening" mod for a actually competent game.

World War 2 Games

What are some good games set during Word War 2? Especially ones with multiple campaigns from different sides, I feel like playing a game where you fight against the enemy of civilisation that is the eternal kraut. Company of Heroes is awesome even though I'm not too much into RTS, the level of attention to detail that this game puts is absolutely astounding. The fact that you can break through a wall with a tank is cool enough on its own, but the game offers far more than that. Airfix dogfighter is a cool little dogfighting game where you play as a WW2 era toy plane fighting either on the side of Axis or the Allies. Not a typical WW2 game but interesting still.

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
