Minor News Thread Anonymous 08/23/2021 (Mon) 22:32:02 Id: 9cb4c9 No. 396559
Basically this is a thread for those minor news articles that are interesting but not necessary big enough to have their own thread. We will be taking the bigger stories from these threads and making them into their own threads, Anons are welcome to do the same. We will NOT be heavily enforcing these threads, so please keep that in mind. Basically things like game announcements, live stream events, new gaming hardware, etc. should have their own threads while shit like NEW GUILTY GEAR DLC 3 "SLAYER" or something like that should be posted in this thread. While we won't ban anyone for doing the former, we encourage anons to use their best judgement when posting news content.

<Star Citizen Has Raised An Eye-Watering $400,000,000 Since 2012 >According to Star Citizen's official website, the game has now generated more than $400,000,000 from fan-raised funds.

>>476687 Honestly no idea. I never really bothered with or kept tabs on it. Hopefully another anon who did can chime in on the subject though as it would be interesting to see what space game can best drain your wallet.
>>476673 He was always a cunt and became a real shitter in 2016. The guy was pals with Lazzo and got preferential funding for his unfunny projects over real shows for the network. Surprised surprise, Lazzo is thrown out and real shows are immediately announced, plus new seasons for old shows people liked, and now Tim can't seem to scrape any money together to do his shitty productions any more, and the world turns. You know it's bad when industry suits can make better decisions about shows than guys who were trained as writers in comedy and entertainment.

So according to 4cuck /biz/ someone put the entirety of Super Mario 64 onto the ICP (Internet Computer Protocol) blockchain. SM64 is basically going to be on the internet FOREVER unless Nintendo buys a 51% stake in the coin or owns half of the nodes for the protocol https://boards.4channel.org/biz/thread/43826343 https://archive.md/wip/US677
(436.75 KB 1600x1200 mario and luigi bersaglieri.png)

>>478907 Are you challenging nintendo?
>>478907 I never understood stuff like this and blockchains. How can I buy stakes in this? Do I need to buy it with other crypto currencies? Econ class never taught us this shit back when I was in school.
>>478915 ICP as a coin is supposed to "redefine" the internet according to their whitepaper. That doesnt matter. The game isnt running on the internet or anything magic like that. This is just a bunch of arbitrary data shoved onto the blockchain. Why this matters is that some blockchains can support large data, and second, this is copyright/illegal content. Its there forever on the transaction ledger. You have to have consensus from half the entire protocol to fork/alter the ledger, so that arbitrary data is basically there forever. tldr anyone with access to the ICP protocol can access SM64 (and possibly other games) forever
>>476687 Has EVE Online taken FOUR HUNDRED MILLION dollars from people without providing a game?
>>476687 Considering EvE has had an actual, functioning game for 18 years now, no. Any real game beats vaporware by default. Eve however, does have the limitations of an 18 year old game for the most part. Tab targeting (at least when I last played it) is a shit so combat is boring, eternal imbalance, and spreadsheet simulator, but, well, that's just all economic-focused games by default.
>>478917 What gets put on that ICP isn't vetted or anything? It's open source?
>>479043 Go outside and slap one of those BOPE guys to see if they are so powerless, luciano.
>>479065 Do it then, go and show me, if you do so and post evidence ill go and blow up a goverment building, deal?
(291.18 KB 1200x1600 Cossack.jpg)

>>478917 Wouldn't the resolution to the case just be that Nintendo just sues the fuck out of the one guy who uploaded it and the devs? Unless if I'm understanding this correctly the coin is so successfully decentralized that no one person currently has 51% stake. In such an instance, would the theoretically legal move be for Nintendo to sue ICP stakeholders collectively until they collectively choose to remove that code? I'm assuming the stakeholders aren't private, but I don't know the details of the coin.
>>476687 Eve is an actual game, whatever you may say about the quality of that game, it actually exists. Star Shitizen is the promise of a game, and until that game materializes, EVE, by mere grace of actually existing, is better.
>>479275 I'm pretty sure Star Citizen is pretty far along in development now. It's just failed to deliver on when it would be done because it evolved into a perpetually developer live server game. Not that that excuses anything but it has been actively developed and you can play it. I've heard it's kind of impressive but jenk.
>>479277 Oh yeah I know there's been actual gameplay released at some point. Whether or not that will be worth it or not is a different question, and it's almost a certainity that it will come out. However, until it fully does in it's entirety, any comparison between EVE and it are marred by the fact it isn't realized yet.
Shadow Tactics is getting an expac. To be honest I felt something in my throat with that last reveal. I miss him a lot.

>>484369 that DLC was promised last year so that's not really news
>>484383 Was not aware. It releases next week so I guess that's news.
>>484369 KoA is unironically a good game, it was just way too expensive and didn't sell well.
>>484385 I remember it being really on the easy side.
Squeenix announces a Chrono Cross teaser...

You probably had a few 5 or 6/10s back in 7th gen I wanted to fuck Faith from Mirror's Edge (original, not the inferior Catalyst version) but only because I had yellow fever during my teenage days but that's about it. >>485351 Is this her?

So I'm sceptical. >When was the last time you guys seen an actual beautiful white woman or girl in a western vidya? >western That makes it really hard. Beautiful is hard because it requires a lot of polygons and we only have those since recently but recently also means more Jews in vidya. Bastila (KotoR) was cute but she had few polygons. Can't blame her for that. Ashley in Mass Effect 1 was okay but she was an ugly mutt and so was Shepard. Liked her racism though. Lara Croft in Tomb Raider 2013 looked okay. In Tomb Raider Underword she has bigger tits though a less western face. Characters in BloodRayne all looked like ugly skanks. Triss looked good IN WITCHER TWO. In 1 and 3 she's ugly. Portal bitch is an ugly flatchested Brazillian. Fuck her. The co-op robots were just as good. Skyrim can have some good looking women. After you modded it. I feel like there aren't that many western games in which women actually have character and appear for more than a few seconds. >>485314 He said western.

Just noticed how a little over a week ago, DW9 Empires got a new trailer. Description of the game below: >“Combining the 1 vs. 1,000 action of DYNASTY WARRIORS with the addition of strategic elements, including unit command, DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 Empires sets players on a quest to conquer ancient China by both sword and strategy. Powerful Siege Battles enable commanders to deploy units to capture strategic points on the map like castles. Experiencing high-stakes fights at every turn, players can now take control of these central points on the battlefield through the use of fire attacks or other stratagem, siege weapons, and, at times, simply by force as commanders execute their strategies and attack enemy troops by issuing vital commands to units throughout the skirmish >Also added is an enriched edit function that enables gamers the ability to create the officers of their dreams and interact with the heroes of ancient China through an expanded domestic system. Players will be able to live the life of an independent officer, govern as a kind ruler, or act wickedly as a villain, helping create a more lifelike and fulfilling Three Kingdoms world with ever-changing human relations and dramatic events where the relationships between characters will have a greater influence on gameplay than ever before.” <Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires releases in the west on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on February 15, 2022

>>489956 Well, most of those games are a few years old, so not many people are buying them anymore. The exception to the rule being the games that are given away on EGS because Tencent are paying the devs to make them free to entice people to their shitty storefront.
>>490245 But is the commander also a sexy(?) girl?
>>490168 I hope they fail miserably. Steam's already a platform to boost the volume of garbage games in the world. I can already see this becoming the next Rapelay if it sells any copies and the media (either flavor) gets whiff of it.

$70 pricing is coming to PC, starting with Square Enix’s next games. https://archive.md/Boc89 That also means that base game FFXVI will also cost $70, ofc not including possible DLC or expansions Of course it will be that way unless nobody buys those games at that price thus driving it back down to normal, but we all know that won't happen.

Nvidia Quietly Prepares to Abandon $40 Billion Arm Bid >Nvidia Corp. is quietly preparing to abandon its purchase of Arm Ltd. from SoftBank Group Corp. after making little to no progress in winning approval for the $40 billion chip deal, according to people familiar with the matter. >Nvidia has told partners that it doesn’t expect the transaction to close, according to one person, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private. SoftBank, meanwhile, is stepping up preparations for an Arm initial public offering as an alternative to the Nvidia takeover, another person said. >The purchase -- poised to become the biggest semiconductor deal in history when it was announced in September 2020 -- has drawn a fierce backlash from regulators and the chip industry, including Arm’s own customers. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission sued to stop the transaction in December, arguing that Nvidia would become too powerful if it gained control over Arm’s chip designs. >The acquisition also faces resistance in China, where authorities are inclined to block the takeover if it wins approvals elsewhere, according to one person. But they don’t expect it to get that far. >Both Nvidia and Arm’s leadership are still pleading their case to regulators, according to the people, and no final decisions have been made. And through it all, the companies have publicly maintained their commitment to the purchase. >“We continue to hold the views expressed in detail in our latest regulatory filings -- that this transaction provides an opportunity to accelerate Arm and boost competition and innovation,” Nvidia spokesman Bob Sherbin said. >“We remain hopeful that the transaction will be approved,” a SoftBank spokesperson said in an emailed statement. >Nvidia shares fell as much as 5.6% to $220.70 in New York on Tuesday. SoftBank’s U.S. depository shares slid 4.9%. >If Nvidia manages to get the deal over the line, it would be a massive coup for Chief Executive Officer Jensen Huang, who has built a graphics-card business into a chipmaking empire. Already, he’s sitting atop the most valuable U.S. company in the semiconductor industry, with a market capitalization of more than half a trillion dollars. >But it will be an uphill fight. Qualcomm Inc. pulled the plug on its $44 billion takeover of NXP Semiconductors NV in 2018 after nearly two years of regulatory hurdles. >The sale of Arm is under heavy scrutiny because its chip designs are used in everything from phones to cars to factory equipment, making neutrality the foundation of its business model. The world’s biggest tech companies rely on Arm technology, and they fear they could lose unfettered access under Nvidia. >Tech giants lined up against the takeover. A group that includes Qualcomm, Microsoft Corp., Intel Corp. and Amazon.com Inc. have provided regulators around the world with what they believe is enough ammunition to kill the deal, according to people familiar with the process. In addition to needing approval in the U.S. and China, the Arm purchase needs clearance from the European Union and the U.K., both of which are studying the deal closely. >The ordeal has created divisions within Nvidia. Some people at the company are resigned to the acquisition’s defeat, but others think management could use the FTC trial to demonstrate the merits of the transaction. >In the end, though, Nvidia will probably be fine without Arm, said Sanford C. Bernstein analyst Stacy Rasgon. >“While owning the asset could have been wonderful, we don’t believe they had to have it either,” he said in a research note. The deal could have helped Nvidia’s push into data-center chips, but the company “presumably can and will” continue their stand-alone efforts, Rasgon said. >Within SoftBank, there are factions that want to let the process play out -- especially since a gain in Nvidia’s stock price has made the transaction more valuable. Even after a recent tumble, Nvidia shares have nearly doubled since the Arm deal was announced. That’s added tens of billions of dollars to the initial $40 billion price tag. >Others at SoftBank would prefer to pursue an IPO for Arm sooner, while the chip industry is still considered attractive to investors. Already, concerns about a slowdown are growing. >The initial agreement between Nvidia and SoftBank expires Sept. 13 -- two years after it was forged -- but could renew if a deal is agreement is reached. Nvidia said at the outset that closing the transaction would take “approximately 18 months.” That timeline would suggest completion around March of this year -- something that’s no longer likely. >The FTC lawsuit alone could take months. And the European Commission and the U.K.’s antitrust watchdog will have to weigh in. >SoftBank and Arm are entitled to keep $2 billion Nvidia paid at signing, including a $1.25 billion breakup fee, whether the deal goes through or not. >Nvidia also has to get signoff from Chinese authorities at a time when trade tensions are running high. The U.S. has sought to prevent China’s semiconductor industry from getting access to the latest technology. Many of the country’s fledgling chipmakers are Arm customers, giving Beijing extra incentive not to let the technology pass into U.S. ownership. >In arguing against the deal, companies like Qualcomm, Intel and Google have said that Nvidia can’t preserve Arm’s independence because it’s an Arm customer itself. Nvidia, the largest maker of graphics chips, competes with Intel in server processors and is expanding into new areas that would put it in direct competition with many other Arm licensees. >Nvidia also supplies chips to businesses such as Amazon’s AWS and Microsoft’s Azure, providing technology that handles artificial intelligence processing in data centers. Those companies also are developing their own chips, making Nvidia both a supplier and a potential rival.

>>512134 The only VN with good gameplay is Sengoku Rance. And the gameplay in that game is in fact better than most "normal" games out there. As for writting, Saya no Uta has a good overall story, and Clannad is an emotional rollercoaster with a slow build up. Good starters would be Symphonic Rain (music mini-game), Nanairo Reincarnation (no gameplay), or Yume Miru Kusuri (branching story, aka routes). The biggest issue with asking for VN suggestions is that most people will suggest utterly trite garbage because those people are incapable of self-reflection or objectivity. Imagine asking for a VN with good gameplay and getting Utawareumono or Kamidori as answers if you will: both those games do feature gameplay as a core feature, but the systems are simplistic, the difficulty trivial, and the combat as a whole feels much worse than even the most average of "normal" games of these types. Both the games I listed are SRPGs but suck compared to something mediocre like The Banner Saga or Langrisser.
>>521113 >Kamidori >not good What. Just because it's not Rance doesn't mean it doesn't have its own appeal, the gameplay systems aren't as monstrously complex but they're plenty satisfying. Not only that but you compared it to 2 totally different games. Kamidori has a sizable focus on crafting and building up your guild through creating goods, managing units, getting materials and whatnot, neither of those 2 games have any significant aspect similar to that at all, and the way their stories are told, and really their plots are differently styled as well. Plus the way the characters get stronger in Kamidori differ from those games, calling Kamidori an SRPG doesn't make much sense as it tries to categorize it into what I'd call a largely incorrect box.
>>521139 >Kamidori has a sizable focus on crafting and building up your guild You get infinite time, to farm infinite resources, to craft infinite of what you need, so you can buy infinite consumables. At least the game limits you to 99 (or 100?) per map, but you can just buy more each map. Your stats aren't high enough for the map you're on? Grind infinitely! Not your thing? You can spam revive/heal your party members with those consumables. There's no real pressure on you at any given time. The crafting itself is super simplistic: just go down the list and craft a few of each things and you'll get all the promotion points and furniture you need. Mind you, I'm not saying Kamidori is overall a bad game. I'm saying the gameplay isn't good, especially when compared to other games in the same genre. And Kamidori's genre absolutely isn't "crafting" or "store management". Defining it as such would be an insult to games like Atelier. Kamidori is a good porn game as far as porn games go. It's a pretty barebones SRPG, and the crafting is an afterthought. The story is shit, the girls are great, the protag is a man-whore, and the bartender's a fucking jew. The H scenes are amazing and it's fun to play. You need to be able to compartmentalize the things you analyze, understand each part, get a feel for how they interact with one another, understand them individually and as a whole, and then compare them with other, similar things and see how they hold up. As you practice this and as you experience more of the "thing" you try to analyze, the more precise you'll be with your analysis.
>>521167 >infinite time Since when? The postgame? If you fall underneath the amount you have to sell to pay off your rising debts/expenses, you're fucked. >there's no real pressure on you at any given time What are you talking about? There is a point where expenses rise faster than the pace you can sell things at in the early-midgame, and costs accumulate because upgrading the place does eat into things and increases expenses. >insult to games like Atelier Atelier is purely crafting, its combat-related shit is absolute dogshit. Its also literally one of the easiest JRPG franchises in existence for pretty much every single game in the franchise. Its ultra-casual. If you want to talk about lack of pressure and then compare it to fucking Atelier, you must be insane or something. >at least the game limits you to 99? or 100 per map What are you talking about? Postgame shit? Also, just because you can buy consumables doesn't mean you can sell what you make at a quick enough pace, your money is limited, and time does pass by in the game. If people don't want to buy what you sell, you're fucked, and that happens quite often in the early-mid game when your shit is low-tier, expenses are high or increase rapidly, and your ability to sell things period is minimal, on top of the difficulties of maintaining upgrading the place in parallel with all the other duties of the shop and game. I remember distinctly that I had to keep up the pace and claw and survive in terms of income to expenses in the early-mid game, until things started ramping. Once you're snowballed, maybe in the middle of the midgame or later, then things just end up as a nonstop money train, but before that point, you have to build up yourself up and get things rolling, and moving something as static as an early-game shop took some time and effort. On top of this, the SRPG elements often had notable difficulty spikes when it came to enemy strength, grinding is generally a stupid way to deal with it, as is with consumables, especially if you spend too much on them.
>>521179 If I kept a folder of smug anime girls, I'd be digging through it right about now. It seems like you're thinking of Recettear. I never mentioned that game. >Atelier I haven't played much Atelier, but the games I did play were far, far more in depths than anything in Kamidori. As far as I know, some of the Atelier games have time limits, which is a hard requirement for the crafting part of a game to be considered good. So while I don't know all that much about Atelier, I do know that the crafting in that series is generally miles ahead of anything Kamidori has to offer.
>>521183 >it seems you're thinking of recettear Nigger what are you talking about, I actually played through Kamidori, I have never touched Recettear. Granted it's been about 2-3 years or so since I last did so, but nothing I said was inaccurate afaik. >as far as I know You know nothing, Atelier is a very casual game, it's described as "comfy" for a reason. It's crafting system is deep, but the game is piss-easy, especially compared to Kamidori. Kamidori doesn't have much crafting depth but it has enough for what it is, and it combines genres as a result. Atelier is nothing like Kamidori, and neither is Recettear.

>>521185 And to add to this: What do you think happens when you fail to pay your expenses? My ass Kamidori doesn't have time limits. Do you see the word "Days", have you even played Kamidori? Were you just spouting shit out of your ass?
>>521187 >>521185 You need to craft like 1 item every 10 hours to pay guild upkeep past the first hour of the game. It's not a time limit, it's a system that's meant to force the players back to town in order to trigger events and not have events happen out of order. Let me put this plainly: during any given chapter throughout the story, all you need to maintain the upkeep is to craft a single item from the materials you gather from a previous chapter's map. Furthermore, each chapter requires you to craft a set number of items to gather point to increase your guild rank. Most of these items will be multitudes of copies of useless weapons and armours. In typical RPG fashion, you'll sell all but two or three copies. Now let me make this clear: the amount of gold you'll make from spam crafting those junk items will not only EASILY clear away any dues currently accrued, but the funds you'll get will EASILY keep you in the positive a hundred fucking fold. For a single item. Even if you try to ignore the crafting portion of Kamidori, you'll end up making THOUSANDS of times more money than you will ever, ever need to keep up with the guild dues. Like I said, that system only serves to force the players back to town at least every 30 days; it's presented in the form of guild dues for purely story and immersion purpose.
>>521192 No, you need to sell the item, and that's very fucking different from just crafting it If its a shit item, it won't sell, if you're spamming low-quality items, they won't sell and you'll have lost your money for doing so If your guild is not attractive and using the slots correctly, nor has a good shopkeeper, the items won't sell It costs money and time to get more slots and upgrades, and you have limited time and money. >1 item every 10 hours What are you talking about, are you insane? JUNK ITEMS DON'T SELL, HAVE YOU PLAYED THE GAME? Early game you have minimal selling skills and the shop looks like shit, only good items will sell, and good items are rarer. Selling copies of an item that looks like it might sell is risky because people can often buy 1-2, and then stop entirely in the early game, and you're stuck with a stash of shit sitting there on the shelf that you spent money and time on, but is literally wasted totally while your expenses climb. The scenario you're describing doesn't happen until the snowballing period, it is simply not possible in the early game whatsoever, and the midgame, it depends on how and what you've done exactly.
>>521192 Also, you literally cannot ignore the crafting, what the hell are you talking about? And money-wise, things get expensive later on, as in the good shit. So no, that's simply not true that you'll have such a crazy amount to trivialize the game. You'll have lots of money, but shit costs a lot more obviously. >story and immersion purposes You can't ignore the workshop you dumbfuck, if what you're describing was the case, it wouldn't be a forced game over, and a possible source of soft-locking as a result.
>>521201 Anon, I'm trying to put this argument into perspective. Here's my attempt. Imagine we're arguing about Baldur's Gate 1. I'm saying that making a fighter type CHARNAME with minimal charisma is fine because there aren't any meaningful interactions with charisma for your PC. Then you come in and argue that the 3-4 small events that are altered if you talk with the NPC with a low charisma character mean that having a low charisma PC is bad... except that if you were knowledgeable enough, you'd know that what matters if which character you initiate the dialog with, not your PC's stats. And that you want your party leader to have high charisma for the shopping discount anyways. In any case, >you need to sell the item Trivial to do, just put Tits or Flat while you're clearing a map for mats and most of what you have will sell. >if it's a shit item it won't sell Item quality and worth has no meaningful (if any) relationship with how fast any particular item flies off of the shelves. The quantity of stuff you sell is governed by the Attraction stat >if you're spamming low-quality items they won't sell Lower tier items will sell. In fact, due to the amount of lower tiered mats you'll get, a large portion of your income will come from selling low level junk. >you'll have lost your money There's no listing fee, and no per-item upkeep. You don't lose money for having stuff listed. >if your guild is not attractive and not using slots correctly You get furniture for free form playing the game. Dumping it haphazardly into your rooms will get you through the game on NG. Minimal effort with the "bigger number = better" mentality will cover 99% of your shop's needs and your alchemy's needs. >you have limited time and money Absolutely wrong. Kamidori has no time limit, no grinding limit, or any kind of money making limit. You are flat out wrong. >you cannot ignore the crafting I said "even if you try to ignore", which means even if you do the bare minimum of what the game asks of you. >things get expensive later on And your money making abilities sky rocket once you get the foxy lady to teleport your ass around maps. Gather all the nodes on a good map in 2 minutes, repeat until you hit the 30 day "limit", hit the town, craft one item, put Tits or Flat as clerks, go back out and farm for another 30 days. You come back, and you get enough money to carry you for 10 hours. >you can't ignore the workshop You don't need to interact with it all that much if all you care about is getting through NG. Most of the interacting you do with the shop is through grinding materials in maps. It's perfectly fine to MOSTLY ignore the workshop once you get a bit of pocket money. The game will force you to craft stuff pretty frequently, just craft and put stuff for sale when you need to craft story items and you'll do fine. To me it sounds like you have minimal experience playing the game, and are arguing from a position of ignorance. And it also sounds like you're really, really bad at managing the store in that game, that or you're completely missing something obvious.
>>521236 >3-4 small events <game overs and the mechanic being connected with literal progression in the game are comparable to small NPC dialogue events Excellent start to the argument. >tits or flat while you're clearing a map <just give up one of your very few party members in the early part of a game with notable difficulty spikes to sell shit for a mechanic that "doesn't matter" >item quality and worth has no meaningful relationship with how fast any particular item flies off the shelves, its just the attraction stat Nah, there is a difference I've noticed. You can't sell nothing but dyes and dogshit items and expect to be fine, but the second you put up a different kind of item, often a higher quality one, it'll leave the shelf relatively quickly compared to the "commodity"-tier good, until the later game when you have more ability to sell everything in your shop with ease. >no listing fee or per-item upkeep That's not what I'm referring to >you get furniture free from playing the game Yeah, and you don't get good, actually useful furniture until later, and it costs time, money and materials to increase the slots to even have places to put the furniture to begin with. Dumping it haphazardly has minimal effect, you still need to actually get shit. >Kamidori has no time limit <game over when you fail to pay dues within a set period of days isn't a time limit >I said even if you try to ignore, which means even if you do the bare minimum of what the game asks of you I have no idea what you're trying to say here at this point. >craft 1 item Just what kind of item can you craft that can hold you over for 10 fucking hours? My first playthrough of Yuela's route took 90 hours, in that time I still had to sell shit, guild dues weren't a big deal in the later game, but item and gear costs went up drastically for the good stuff. >You don't need to interact with it all that much if all you care about is getting through NG. Most of the interacting you do with the shop is through grinding materials in maps. It's perfectly fine to MOSTLY ignore the workshop once you get a bit of pocket money. The game will force you to craft stuff pretty frequently, just craft and put stuff for sale when you need to craft story items and you'll do fine. <the game will force you to craft stuff pretty frequently <the game will force you to craft stuff pretty frequently <the game will force you to craft stuff pretty frequently So, its not once every 10 hours? How long does it take to get to the foxy lady again? How many quests do you have to do again? Remind me? I'm not bad at all, I went through the game's normal difficulty curve of struggling in the early-midgame due to limited resources, and snowballed when it was appropriate. You on the other hand, literally have contradictions in your own post yet you act like you have the game perfectly figured out. So does the game force you to craft often, or is it just "once every 10 hours"? Can you just automatically get the foxy lady from the start? No? Really? You mean you don't have the teleporting chick in the early game, and possibly even the early-midgame? (Disregarding the annoying effort it takes to get her in the first place) So, all of what you just said about the game is comparable to 3-4 small events in BG1 being altered by low charisma? Have you thought about anything you've been saying? You're acting like you start out as a god from the start or something, have you forgotten you actually need to play through the fucking game to get what you're describing?
>>521252 >game overs and the mechanic being connected with literal progression in the game are comparable to small NPC dialogue events Disingenuous. You have to go out of your way to get a money related game over in Kamidori. Hell, I didn't even think it was possible to get a game over that way until you brought it up. Of all the times I've discussed this game, you are the first and only person to mention the dues as being a significant part of the game. Every other discussion surrounding Kamidori that I've had since it the translation was released ignored that system because it's a non-factor unless you greatly deviate from what the game tells you do, from what the game expects you to do, from what the spirit of the game is about, and from what the game forces you do. >just give up one of your very party members You do realize you can go back to previously cleared story maps and gather materials there, right? You don't need to clear story missions while you leave one of the girls on clerk duty, that can easily be done between missions while you gather materials, 100% maps, and get extra experience. >difference on item quality There isn't. What you noticed is that each item listed gets sold at a certain rate. If you have say 50 red stones listed, you'll only sell 2-3 a day. If you have 50 red stones and 3 Sword of FuckTheLastBossInTheAss+20 Vorpal+7 MountainSplitting+11 that's worth a trillion gold, they'll both sell 2-3 a day. Those numbers are approximations. Attract stat dictates the volume, along with Sales. Now that I think about it, I'm not exactly certain which is more impactful because I never really needed to test it since you want to maximize Price. Attract and Sales will go up by virtue of progressing through the game, upgrading your workshop, leveling up your characters, and finally with furniture. >what's not what I'm referring to What were you talking about in regards to losing money? Using materials and putting up stuff that doesn't sell as opposed to stuff that does sell? >furniture You'll get a good amount of so-so furniture for free along with complete junk you can craft. Furniture isn't very important, and incremental upgrades every few chapters will serve. >Kamidori has no time limit NG+ has a very small amount of quests with a generous time limit. All are side quests, and they're all very easy to complete. Early on, the game forces you to craft stuff all the damn time, which will get you more than enough funds to become established. Once you complete these first few story missions, you'll have more than enough money to keep you going for a long, long time. At that point, failing to pay your dues is impossible unless you're actively trying to fail. With that being said, if I were to re-download and install the game and have a fresh start, I'd have no issue keeping up with the game's upkeep by clearing out the tutorial level with Will. If you can go back and clear the tutorial and make more than enough money to ignore the guild dues system, then time no longer counts as a limit. Finish tutorial > farm tutorial > make infinite money. Given enough autism, it should be possible to hit the gold cap in the tutorial mission as soon as the game lets you pick which mission to embark on. To me, that means there's no time limit because past that point (where the game lets you go where you want), your money making potential keeps skyrocketing until you finish NG+. The 30 day timer isn't a time limit in the typical "You have 3 minutes to complete this Super Mario Bros. stage" definition that most gamers go by. It's a pacing mechanism at best or a poor system to make sure players don't break the game at worst. That's why I don't refer to the 30 days as a limit, since it doesn't limit you in what you can do or accomplish. Unless you go out of your way and try to fail that system. And like I just pointed out, Kamidori allows for infinite money making at almost any point in time throughout the game. >I have no idea what you're trying to say The game requires you to have a certain amount of crafts done to upgrade your guild rank. To get enough points to upgrade your guild rank, you need to craft a LOT of shit. Most of that shit will be sold for profit. That profit will easily keep you afloat. >what kind of item can you craft that can hold you over 10 fucking hours Dragon stuff? Up to date weapons and armor? We must be playing the game way differently. Again, I've never heard of anyone ever having any money problems whatsoever playing Kamidori. >so it's not once every 10 hours Once every 10 hours assuming you're just doing random shit, or just doing side events, or grinding, or what have you. If you're actually progressing the story and doing quests, you get showed in money and materials that you can turn into more money. >how long does it take to get the foxy lady? 20-30 hours? Is she needed to farm? Absolutely not, she just increases your efficiency. She lets you gather materials on a map in 1-2 minutes instead of 2-3. It's a very nice bonus, just like Ful's Mill and extra movement. But you can grind without those and make as much money as you want without those. It's a matter of time efficiency. >you have the game perfectly figured out I do. I beat the game from a fresh start three times, the last two times were full NG+++ 100% clears. >have you forgotten you actually need to play through the fucking game to get what you're describing >I'm not bad at all Go read the part where I said you can grind infinite money as soon as the game starts. You are bad.

>>521271 How the fuck am I disingenuous for stating the truth and bringing up your comparison and analogy? Are you acknowledging your own disingenuousness? >you are the first and only person to mention the dues as being a significant part of the game I have talked about the game before, in fact I found the /hgg/ thread I made back on vch.moe when I finished the game, I bring the dues and midgame up at times when it gets discussed if the difficulty of the game is mentioned. Pic is not me though, but other anons from the thread discussing how they couldn't sell anything until they figured things out. Their shit differed from you in that charisma made the biggest difference, but when your party members are limited, its a pain in the neck, and describing as "keeping it afloat" is not something that sounds trivial. One anon discovering how to do this shit by chapter fucking 4. Regardless, if you're comparing shit like this to Atelier as an example of no-pressure comparisons, you are a lunatic. >You do realize you can go back to previously cleared story maps and gather materials there, right? You don't need to clear story missions while you leave one of the girls on clerk duty, that can easily be done between missions while you gather materials, 100% maps, and get extra experience. Grinding cheap filler items doesn't make a difference if the items don't sell, you can only craft limited amounts of things in the early game. I did do that, but days are a resource that is taken when you do so, and you need to make the most of the time you get there. This was also a first-time, blind playthrough I refer to, which is what most people have when they go through a game for the first time. I don't like to grind much in games either for that matter, I'd prefer not to trivialize them in such a tedious and repetitive way. >What you noticed is each item listed gets sold at a certain rate Then the items each have unique rates of sale, I am confident in that. If I can go many days without selling a single item of a large stack after a point, but other items (but only of a higher quality) will sell fine and consistently, something is different between them. This has literally happened with me in the game, iirc it was with several of the dyes (pink dyes or so being the worst offender), compared to higher-level items. They would literally sit for such a long time that I just took them out after that point and gave up on them entirely, it was a waste until I actually had enough shit going on for me that everything would sell, which was later in the game. >What were you talking about in regards to losing money? Using materials and putting up stuff that doesn't sell as opposed to stuff that does sell? Yes. >Go read the part where I said you can grind infinite money as soon as the game starts. You are bad. <grind infinite money as soon as the game starts What the fuck are you talking about? You can't grind infinite money as soon as the game starts. You start out with absolute trash, and what you find is mainly trash, and you're selling trash, in a shitty shop that nobody wants to buy from. What would you get from the tutorial level that you can use to be fine for the whole time in terms of guild dues? I don't remember anything like that. >20-30 hours? Topkek. But she's not "required", she just makes the process less awful, so if you're willing to make the game play like dogshit, you can just "grind", as if that's not something against the game if we assumed what you were saying was true. >Attract and Sales will go up by virtue of progressing through the game, upgrading your workshop, leveling up your characters, and finally with furniture. So... its almost like beginning of the game, the middle of the game, and the end of the game (and the in-betweens) are different from each other in terms of your resources and ability to sell goods. You start out with little, a minimal ability to sell, and resources that you basically have to spend on improving your shop if you want to progress through the game in a timely fashion.
>>521284 >How the fuck am I disingenuous for stating the truth and bringing up your comparison and analogy? Because they're both mostly insignificant. >you are the first and only person to mention the dues as being a significant part of the game >doing so removes all upkeep problems and all challenge in the game Don't blame me for not looking at the big button on the UI that says clerk. Even the anon in that screenshot is saying what I'm saying: money making is trivial. >comparing to Atelier I'm comparing the depth of Kamidori's crafting system to the depth of Atelier's crafting system. Or to be precise, I've only played two Atelier games for a few hours each, and what little memory remains of those game tells me that what they had was far more robust and interesting than what Kamidori has to offer. Compounded by the little bits and pieces I've heard regarding Atelier over the years, the time limit being particularly noteworthy. >Grinding cheap filler items doesn't make a difference if the items don't sell Everything sells quickly with one of the girls on clerk duty. >you can only craft limited amounts of things in the early game Limited in how many different kinds of items you can craft, but there's no limit on how many copies of each item you can craft. >days are a resource that is taken when you do so Days are not a resource. As I've previously explained, you have an infinite number of days available to you. >blind playthrough I refer to, which is what most people have when they go through a game for the first time. And I had no issues with my first playthrough. Kamidori was the first game I've played with a store management aspect. In fact, it wasn't a "no issues", it was a "completely trivial" kind of thing. >I don't like to grind much in games either for that matter, I'd prefer not to trivialize them in such a tedious and repetitive way. Neither do I. Good gameplay needs to be challenging and infinite grinding removes the challenge in most situations and games. It is possible to grind your heart out in Kamidori, no idea why anyone would do it. It's not fun, it's not rewarding, and it's not needed. >Then the items each have unique rates of sale, I am confident in that. I'll take your word for it. >You can't grind infinite money as soon as the game starts. You can. There's no reason to, but you can. You definitely wouldn't want to, but you can. >What would you get from the tutorial level that you can use to be fine for the whole time in terms of guild dues? Whatever starter recipes the game hands you. The dues are quite minimal, you'll make a good profit margin even at the beginning. Completely awful compared to what you'd make after an hour or two into the game. >he just makes the process less awful, so if you're willing to make the game play like dogshit, you can just "grind", as if that's not something against the game if we assumed what you were saying was true. You need to grind no matter what before you reach the Fox chick. Not a whole lot, but some. Even if you DID want to grind a whole lot before getting her, what you have available to you is somewhat limited. You don't have that many good recipes that need a lot of annoying mats, so there's no real need to go out of your way to grind. But then again, she's not a game changer. She won't be tripling or quadrupling the resources you get or cut down the amount of time needed to get those resources by some monstrous amount. She's a good quality of life, but farming stuff doesn't feel like dogshit without her. Until NG+, but that's a different argument. >You start out with little, a minimal ability to sell, and resources that you basically have to spend on improving your shop if you want to progress through the game in a timely fashion. Yes, I'm glad we agree on this. But what's your point?

Another good reason to switch to Linux. https://archive.fo/kjHsD >Windows computers need at least eight hours of online time to obtain and install the latest operating system updates successfully. This information comes via a post on the Microsoft IT Pro Blog by David Guyer, program manager for Windows Updates in Endpoint Manager at Microsoft. >Another revelation in the post is that Microsoft tracks how long PCs are connected to Windows Update, calling the statistics ‘Update Connectivity’. The data is available to IT managers in the InTune app, a component of the Endpoint management suite. >The post details Microsoft’s attempts to figure out why some Windows devices aren’t getting the latest quality and feature updates, and discovered that two hours of continuous connectivity was required to get updates. It then took six hours after the release of the patch for a machine to update itself reliably. >Microsoft’s figures show that 50 percent of Windows devices left behind by Windows Update and running a build of Windows 10 that’s no longer serviced do not spend enough time connected to have the patches downloaded and installed in the background. This figure drops to 25 percent for customers using a serviced build of the operating system that lags behind in security updates by 60 days or more. >"You can work to ensure that more devices across your organization meet the minimum Update Connectivity measurement by communicating with device owners, encouraging them to leave their devices plugged in and connected—instead of powering them off overnight—so that updates can download and install properly," writes Guyer. "Impress upon them the importance of keeping their devices connected so their devices can stay protected and they can stay productive." >Windows 11 updates are smaller than their Windows 10 counterparts due to improved compression, and new Microsoft Graph APIs released last year should also help speed up the update process.

>>490484 >>490474 >None of these fucks make anything even remotely worth paying full price for anymore. The Triple gAAAy industry doesn't even make shit worth pirating for free honestly. >>534803 >Nintenblow continues it's planned obsolescence trend And they wonder why people opt to just emulate their games instead, I guess their end goal is to become the ///Apple\\\ of Vidya? Ehh even then they're one of the least cancerous companies today which is sad. to say the least. Maybe they should either invest in a engineer to design a console that isn't a gloried low grade toy or just port their games to PC already and sell various controllers and physical copies to SD cards instead of their priority bullshit. Granted I'll give credit to the quality of Nintenblow's priority bullshit as at least they're solid durable little suckers, after all decades have past and my old Nintendo DS cards still work like a charm and I've played a lot of Mario Kart with my mates back then.
>>534872 Nintendo's decisions, save for the Wii U and GameCube, have been smart. If they're smart, they will never port their games to PC. Why the fuck would they? The reason people buy their shit is exactly because of this. You're port-begging right now, proving their effectiveness with retaining their games on their platform and increasing the value of them as a result. You might not like it, but that's the reality of things. If you don't want to emulate, using Ninty consoles is the only way to play those games.
>>534803 Yet I can still purchase PS3/Vita games on my actual fucking PS3 after Sony reverted their plans to close those stores down. How come modern Soyny can make better decisions than fucking Nintendo?
>>534874 I can smell the butthurt through the screen. wew
>>534876 They tried shutting it down but the sheer backlash forced them to go back on it for the time being, they'll probably try again sometime soon Soyny is cancer ever since the censorship campaign began (and they weren't great before that point either but that was definitely the big turning point in the cancer metastasizing)
>>534140 It is also likely that she simply finished her part of the writing and moved on once she was done. >>534872 >Triple gAAAy industry doesn't even make shit worth pirating for free honestly This is true. Especially with how big the downloads have been getting since devs don't give a flying fuck about keeping their shit from eating up huge chunks of your free space. >>534878 Yeah this is pretty standard. Once people forget about it, they will try to quietly shut it down again.
>>534877 Butthurt about what? It makes perfect sense. As a business, Nintendo has cultivated one of the most autistically devoted fanbases, and they have complete control over them, and they will always give them money. Part of the reason for that is their sheer exclusivity of the platforms. If they gave that up for a few bux in the short-term, they would have to be genuinely retarded. Would you listen to someone who was telling you to port your shit to a platform that wasn't yours, when with your platform, you get 100% of the cut, 100% of the control, and an entire audience that isn't leaving any time soon and will grow itself for you no matter what? Nintendo is currently, afaik, the oldest, most thriving, still-living gaming platform company. This isn't by chance or accident.
>>534880 >120 GB for a single game >Still looks like poorly textured, poorly lit shit Everytime
>>534883 >Would you listen to someone who was telling you to port your shit to a platform that wasn't yours Yes, absolutely. The more people that get to play my games, the better.
>>534883 >Butthurt about what? <You're port-begging right now, proving their effectiveness with retaining their games on their platform and increasing the value of them as a result. <You might not like it, but that's the reality of things. If you don't want to emulate, using Ninty consoles is the only way to play those games. You were so angry that you didn't even read the TORpedos wholes post. He even had the same talking points as you do.
>>534885 >the more people that get to play my games, the better no offense anon, but you're retarded. You might as well not even have a platform at that point. Nintendo's games literally force people to buy their platform specifically. There is no need to port to anything when you have people who are literally feeding into your entire gaming ecosystem. >>534886 I fail to see what you're talking about. He was expressing annoyance that Nintendo didn't port their shit to PC, when their current strategy is what's raking in the money and allowing them to continue as they are. Why do you think, as an example of the others, that its memed that the PS4 has no games? Its not that it literally doesn't have games, its that its games on it are multiplats which are inherently devalued by their nature of being multiplat since you can get them anywhere else (especially including PC). What they're really saying is that it doesn't have enough quality exclusives, that's why its called a bloodborne machine as well, one of its only notable exclusives.
>>534803 Metal Max 4 still needs its DLC dumped properly. All the existing dumps are just sharing one corrupted set.

Gaylo fans are you ready for some $225 shoes? <Wolverine's limited-edition Master Chief boots are for hardcore Halo fans >Developer 343 Industries has partnered with footwear manufacturer Wolverine on a limited-edition boot inspired by Halo's iconic protagonist. As the story goes, fans were quick to point out that Wolverine's Hellcat boot looked like something straight out of Halo when it debuted in August 2020. Rather than brush it off, Wolverine reached out to 343 Industries to make something that Halo fans can truly call their own >Only 117 pairs of Wolverine x Halo: The Master Chief limited-edition boots are being released. They're scheduled to go on sale March 29 at 12 p.m. Eastern over on Wolverine's website priced at $225 https://archive.ph/QRKvg
>>562096 I dont even know if wolverine is a reputable brand for shoes, but if their target audience was the same as the game's ie niggers and mutts, then it would have been a better idea to partner with jordan or ugg.
>>562096 At least they look like normal functional boots. Could be worse.
>>562096 See i never will get this bullshit, if you gave some more realistic prices, you would get a higher ammount of sells, only a nig or a retarded fanboy would pay 225 bucks for a pair of shoes, while if you sold them at say, 80 dollars, im sure plenty more dudebros would get them.
>>562127 It's meant to be a limited item that "collectors" buy. I know a kid, who actually speculates on this market, by buying all these collector item shoes, then selling them a few months later at a profit, though he does keep a few pairs, since he really likes shoes, and before anybody asks, no he is not a nigger, just Eastern European. The high price is to create the illusion of an "exclusive, high quality item", that only wealthy people can buy, and not the common masses, kinda like with Iphones and Mac laptops.
>>562134 Wouldnt they make more money by bulk?
>>562138 We don't have the marketing data and analysis that these companies have, so all I can assume is that they believe, that if they were to price and market them as "regular shoes", then not a lot of people would buy them, sicne they would rather buy actual shoes, and not shoes with HALO or God of War decals plastered on them, as such they might believe that it's profitable to make plain shoes and sell them at 10 x price to the whales collectors, than to sell at regular price to the general audience and try to compete with all the other brands. I think for such times, they just make limited inventory, market that as well, and try to sell as many of them, as fast as possible, instead of trying to slowly sell them in 2-3 years. Again, this is all speculation, as we do not have the marketing data they have, but we do know that Apple's business model of "exclusive", "premium" phones work and can compete with all the other, "regular" Android phones.
>>562127 >only a nig or a retarded fanboy would pay 225 bucks for a pair of shoes You've clearly never paid for a good pair of work boots before.
>>562208 No, my company is obligated to provide me with such things.
>>562096 Believe it or not, I was always looking for green boots like those, they would go great with my cosplay. For that price, tho? Yeah, no I do agree with other anons, Niggers and trannies seem to be the main fanbase of the games now, not the dudebros, who are all grown up and either moved on from video games or are married/employed and have barely any time for them. Nigger brand and/or smaller price would have much better sales, but then again, I don't think 343 has it together, if that new halo show is of any indication >>562134 The thing with collectible items is that it's usually something like figurines or something, an item that can be put on a shelf by anyone. Shoes are a very particular LE item, in that, well, they need to fit perfectly, otherwise you're that idiot with a pair of shoes on his shelf he will never wear. While I do know there are people who will do that, vast majority of people, niggers included, tend to WEAR the shoes they buy/steal, so unless they buy out all the available sizes, and then somehow sell all of them, I don't see this being a bright idea. >>562208 Who's gonna wear gaylo boots to work, tho? I guess it all comes down to their quality, to see if they are worth the price or not. The are definitely not worth 225$ if you just want shoes for everyday use
>>562212 I've never heard of a company providing someone with work boots. At most they cover 80% of the cost and just tell you to go buy whatever the fuck you want. At least that's how it works in the military.
>>562096 >green boot, goes with nothing, attracts attention >just a boot, looks nothing like master chief armor >nobody goes around wearing armor anyway so weird pull >has 117 on it so people will know you're autistic >niggers don't go apeshit for boots, only sneakers, because their jew handlers didn't program them to like a wide range of footwear, so the only target is retarded white bro trust fund types who don't think it through >>562127 >>562208 this, have you seen what RM Williams boots cost? Serious, quality steel-caps are expensive too. >>562767 I've worked for two companies in a row that provided boots for free as well. I also got free high viz gear and a hard hat. I've had to use them exactly once in a decade but there you go. Those boots, incidentally, are more beefy than this crap, too.

<Inside ‘Halo’s’ universal aspirations Some highlights: >Frank O’Connor, franchise creative director for Halo, said he and his team have likely evaluated tens of thousands of proposals from a plethora of companies asking to work with the Halo IP. The potential partners range from promotional opportunities to novels to screen plays. With so many people clamoring for a piece of the Chief, how do they decide what new ideas are okay as 343 tries to grow — but also protect — the Halo IP? <“It’s kind of like porn,” O’Connor said of the opportunities that ultimately make sense for Halo. “You know it when you see it.” >“I think it’s a huge opportunity for us being able to go off console and think about a broader audience,” said Bonnie Ross, general manager of Microsoft’s 343 Studios, who pointed to Marvel’s approach as an example of how Halo hopes to position itself for multiple platforms: feature a uniform aesthetic but allow differences between the games and shows or films. “And I think both with the Halo TV series bringing in a broader audience, with free to play bringing in a broader audience, and then for us, I think it really is learning about how to be an ongoing service and having an ongoing dialogue with fans and getting the infrastructure right.” >In many ways, this latest phase of the Halo franchise — with both the show and the game — has been plotted by focusing on a North Star of reaching new audiences. It was a prime motivation behind making the game free-to-play, a decision reached in Fall 2017. It was likewise a reason the franchise returned to PCs after “Halo 2” through “Halo 5” were released as Xbox exclusives. The studio simply wants to widen the ways people can find and fall in love with Halo <BROADER AUDIENCE >But as Ross notes, even as 343 shoots for the stars of a “universe,” it has to reckon with several factors that threaten to keep it grounded, including those aforementioned fans <being threatened by the fans Ross back when Bungie fucked off: >“I put a pitch together that kind of laid out the universe, the timeline, stories I thought we could tell, as well as noting that I really wanted to have all parts of Halo in one studio, because that’s not how we did it before,” Ross said. “I wanted it to be more like George Lucas [and Star Wars], where we basically owned everything, whether it be TV or movies or games. And for whatever reason, back then they gave me the keys.” This cunt is the kathleen kennedy of gaylo. Now onto the TV Show deviating from the lore: >“It’s hard because I think for some people, they can see it as something being taken away from them, which is understandable because you want the players to feel ownership over the character,” said Kiki Wolfkill, the studio head for Halo transmedia and entertainment at 343 Industries who has been supervising the show’s production. “And that’s why I’m really hoping to be able to express to the audience that this is a different experience. And I do want you to be able to step out of the suit and hopefully enjoy this other perspective.” On making Chief take off his helmet in the first episode: >“I have so much understanding and respect for people who feel that this is a violation. This is a violation of my character,” Wolfkill said, referring to the attachment players feel as they embody Master Chief in the games. “In order to tell this John-focused character story, we have to be able to see John. Because this isn’t just about the Master Chief. The story is more about John or as much about John as it is about the Master Chief. And so it just felt very important to be able to see him emotionally and to see what he’s going through and especially with an actor like Pablo [Schreiber, who plays the role in the series] >“My hope is, again, that once people are able to get into the story, if they are one of the people who don’t want the helmet to come off, they’re able to sort of separate from their game character and appreciate the story and appreciate the character in a different way.” https://archive.ph/ATCRC

He has pervasion on all the time and generally stronger overall. >A new mechanic called "Image pulse" allows you to summon old enemies, rivals, and other previous characters as assist from the past games, The trailer shows you being able to summon Viper, Jota, and the new fire boss for Gunvolt 3. The ability's a combination of the Azure Striker Septima and Kirin's Radiant Feathers. >Lumen's most likey an image pulse as well since the game mentions her as an illusion and the real Lumen's been sealed in Mytyl at the end of Gunvolt 2. >There are over 152 images pulses you can collect in the game. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=3icCimtZdLI[Embed]

>>575597 lol reminder to never support this industry
>>575517 It does a lot of things wrong. Off the top of my head: 1 - world is 1/6th the size of the original. This isn't my estimate, either. That's what the devs confirmed. Not only is it smaller, it's design is dog shit compared to the original. It feels cramped as hell since the game is designed around the new vehicle, which brings us to point 2. 2 - new vehicle is shit. The sea truck is supposed to be a compromise between the sea moth and cyclops, but like all compromises, it just fails at both. It's not fast or agile unless you're not hauling anything (which is almost never), and it doesn't function as a mobile base due to the tiny storage capacity and inability to make food on the go. 3 - SJW bullshit in game. The MC is a black, female Mary Sue that talks a LOT about how much smarter, faster, stronger, ect. than other people she is, and there's even a line said by your PDA, who now talks like a street shitter, about systems of power. 4 - SJW bullshit out of game. The sounds some of the new monsters make are so poorly done that it's crystal clear that it's just a slightly tweaked man screaming. There's nothing like the low, rumbling sound of a reefback or the unique moans of a gasopod anymore, and this, along with all the other ways this game is inferior to the original, is a direct result of SJWs in the company getting talented people fired.
>>575823 >literally "Go home gamer girl" Its embarrassing that our enemies are this much of a parody of themselves, the fact that they attack and browbeat ordinary gamers while doing shit like this is truly laughable if it weren't so disgusting
>>575859 They'll only support women and shitskins when they think exactly like them.
>>575714 >is this the remake with cursed visuals? Yep According to a jewtube funnyman that I follow, more leaks are to come soon, too https://twitter.com/killetheth/status/1512870820523167745?t=89KrNQkMusUHgNDOovpgpw&s=19 It looks and sounds as bad as you think it does. The only positives are the CO character designs and the little pre power animations. Most people though are interested in checking out what's gonna happen with Advance Wars' online presence. Since America and Japan will have it simultaneously and Europe will trudge along in like six months' time, I'm hopeful that it will be enough to prevent Nu-tendo from shutting down Advance Wars By Web.
>>566208 >>571114 That's such an odd choice for a bonus character. I wan't aware anyone but me had even played Child of Light. Why would they add a character from an obscure game from like 8 years ago that most people have never even heard of? Maybe someone on the Bloodstained team is a fan. And yeah they fucked up her appearance. She looks like a mystery meat with dyed pink hair. >>575856 Well shit, I guess it's too much to ask that San Fran residents not let petty politics get in the way of making good games.
>>575856 The curry nigger AI pisses the shit out of me even though it's one of the smallest changes. Even though it's such a small change it makes it just that much harder to understand what that bitch is saying it's so fucking retarded. No only does it ruin the fucking gameplay it makes no goddamn sense ANYONE would use a non native speaker voice as a voice for an AI. Adding to your list 1 - EVERY SINGLE MAIN CHARACTER IS A FUCKING WOMAN THAT DON'T SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT HOW POWERFUL ANS TRONG THEY ARE 2- Game feels like an exact retread of the original without any of the mystery or sense of exploration the first game, probably because the game has a much more narrative focus. 3- land exploration is absolute dog shit, it's just water exploration with a heat mechanic.

>>576532 It's way different, guts overcomes nearly everything they throw at him and none of the characters sans schierke are what one would call "cute", in MiA it's struggle after struggle with everything getting worse the deeper they go, remember that one cute girl that looked like she was going to join the protagonists? She got turned into a juice box and used as fuel. The bunny cunny is probably dead. The new bunny (?) cunny is not fully on the protagonist's side. The blonde girl with glasses is more or less a zombie that won't stop until she gets to the bottom of the abyss because it literally calls out to her, all because her mother had a defective womb and chose to keep her alive with the amulet she carries. And the author can't help but sexualize the scenes where the characters take a shit, hell the latest chapter has the new party member state that her butthole smells good. It's fucking disgusting.
>>576604 Grow a pair. Worse shit happens in berserk.
>>576615 The difference is that none of the characters are moeblobs, call me a faggot but i can't stand seeing cute things suffering.
>>576393 > it makes no goddamn sense ANYONE would use a non native speaker voice as a voice for an AI. I (slightly) disagree: There's one situation where a non-native speaker would be picked as an AI's voice, and that's when the AI's voice is the creator's (since sci-fi is full of AI built by one person). That's not the case there though.
>>576532 >If Berserk released today you would have a bunch of niggers like you kvetching about it. A bunch of slack jawed faggots "discovered" berserk on twatter recently and one of the cunts made a post along the lines of "It's shit and I'm glad muira's burning in hell" because of one of the panels they were bitching about.
>>576604 >guts overcomes everything in MiA it's struggle after struggle with everything getting worse the deeper they go nigger what. The same literally applies to Berserk if not worse. What do you think the Eclipse was you dumbfuck? <these characters died >but the characters in Berserk dying, who gives a shit about that I guess Griffith really doesn't deserve to suffer after all, clearly people like Casca, Pippin, Judeau, and everyone in the band of the fucking hawk didn't matter?
>>576532 >If Berserk released today you would have a bunch of niggers like you kvetching about it If Berserk was released today it wouldn't be nowhere as edgy as it was decades ago. Miura became "softer" with the times, and it's reflected in later arcs of Berserk and side works like Gigantomachia (the oneshot about the pro-wrestler and the loli with magic pee) and Duranki (the manga about futa loli/shota who is the last God and was raised by farmers). >>576616 >call me a faggot but i can't stand seeing cute things suffering I'm exactly like this, specially when said cute things are lolis, shotas or young animals. Even "light" suffering like pics related manage to make me feel bad if they don't end in a positive way, and "heavier" things like seeing a peppy character that played a big part of the plot suffer greatly or die can make me stop reading/watching/playing their story for some time.
>>576667 To be fair, the Eclipse, Black Swordsman arc and the period leading up to the Mosgus/Tower of Conviction arc is Guts at his lowest. Everything after that is building him back up, since he gets a new party and fully commits himself to trying to fix Casca over getting revenge on Griffith. >I guess Griffith really doesn't deserve to suffer after all Griffith's suffering was his own fault, a result of his hubris and petulant anger at Guts trying to be his own person, after dumbass Griffith told him he could never consider someone who didn't follow their own ideals and ambitions a friend. His suffering was deserved, and the sacrifice of the Hawks is yet another selfish tantrum on his part spurred by the horror he feels at knowing that his two most loyal pawns (Guts and Casca) now have more loyalty to each other than to him (Also, he's buttmad Guts is fucking delicious brown tomboy mercenary girl puss instead of his faggot ass)
>>576621 Yea I specifically mean something that is meant to provide assistance to a person. It's retarded to design something that is specifically there give guidance and directions to a person and give it an accent of any kind.

Publisher XSEED Games and developer Grasshopper Manufacture will release No More Heroes III for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Microsoft Store this fall, the companies announced. No More Heroes III first launched for Switch on August 27, 2021. The new versions of No More Heroes III will include improved high-definition graphics, higher frame rates, and faster load times. A physical Day 1 Edition will also be available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Xbox Series / One for $59.99. It includes a copy of the game, a 5.3 by 7.3 inches softcover art book with 70 pages of content, a CD featuring select songs from the soundtrack, and a seven by four inches Santa Destroy commemorative biker license plate, all housed within a custom box featuring a new original illustration by series artist Yusuke Kozaki. Here is an overview of the game, via XSEED Games: >Being the “number-one assassin in the world” isn’t what it used to be. Otaku hero Travis Touchdown is back once more, forced out of retirement to defend Santa Destroy, and Earth, in an intergalactic test of might while proving he’s more than just a washed up has-been who talks to his cat.

That's how bad things have gotten over there.
>>580848 The upgrade was delayed because the original studio was Russian and they took the project off them to work on it in house. Now, why exactly they took it off a Russian studio is still up for debate. CDPR is Polish so there's speculation that the employees demanded they stop working with sovoks after Russia started up on their imperialism again. The more common speculation is bank sanctions making it impossible for them to work with companies based in Russia. Regardless of the reason, the upgrade being delayed is because the original studio got taken off the project and now CDPR has to try make it while also developing two new games on top of working on Cyberpunk. They're stretched thin here.

>>583287 >removing Drag queens, who were among the first groups to march and protest for LGBT rights, just to please a couple of looney troons who were triggered by the models because they looked like them Woketards never cease to amaze me with new ways to be extremely offensive towards minorities.
>>581419 Let's be honest, this was inevitable. >>582315 Looks like Bomb Rush Cyberfunk is our last hope for a JSR sequel. >>583287 But I though fags loved drag queens, they keep pushing them in schools after all.
>>485024 >>485025 Sad, but it's great how much of Harle's ass got shown off. I didn't know it was gachashit when I watched the trailer, and that copious amount of sideboob really caught me off guard.
>>521201 Store management was such an EZ part of the game that I can barely even recall doing it. It's practically an afterthought. Until you mentioned it, I didn't even remember the game had deadlines, and got through every map in the game except that very last DLC one with all the fucking OP angels.
>>583441 Apparently it's because the npcs were "stereotypes" of trannies, as in they were men in dresses and stuff, and that offended them. So it's okay to stereotype other people like mexicans and blacks but not trannies. >"Unlike other random NPCs, the way Rockstar designed GTA V's trans people actively plays into the hateful stereotypes harbored by many transphobic players," Petit wrote. "The trans sex workers you can encounter, with their garish makeup and prominent penis bulges, seem calculated to be ridiculous and repulsive to players who bring their pre-existing transphobia to the game with them. It’s as if they’re designed specifically so that some players could relish hurting and killing them because they are trans." They seriously believe it's just an irrational hateful perception that trannies are depicted as mostly offensive and ugly men in dresses.
>>571730 Might was well never enjoy anything with conflict in it. I like a nice story with determined characters that remain positive despite horrendous adversity. Riko sees and experiences all kinds of horrible things, but to her, it's worth it to see and experience all the wonderful things practically no one else has before that the Abyss has to offer. She's a real adventurer. I also really like the monsters this guy makes, and will be greatly disappointed if this game, which he help write original story for, has no bestiary. Preferably a bestiary written by Riko. I'm undecided as to whether I'd want only her commentary with full rotatable, animated, 3D models, or if it would be more charming to have the bestiary depict the monsters with flat, somewhat crude illustrations by Riko.
>>576604 >She got turned into a juice box and used as fuel. She still joined them. Riko gets her box, spills it, and finds a white whistle in the goop. The white whistles are actually sentient, and can borrow the senses of their owners. She's been able to see the world through Riko's eyes ever since then, and they can talk in her dreams. Faputa can also talk to white whistles directly. >The bunny cunny is probably dead. Nope. >The new bunny (?) cunny is not fully on the protagonist's side. Did you finish her recruitment arc?

>>583287 Who is pressuring them to do this Drag queens are a real thing and are a pretty big & important part of "queer culture", some of the first camp movies like Pink Flamingos and Rocky Horror prominently featured drag queens
>>583580 >Pressuring Most of it is from Rockstar/TakeTwo itself. Nobody remembers some side character wore a confederate flag but when remaking the GTA trilogy specifically went out of their way to take it out. The classic tale where they care more about showing how progressive they are to drum up sales while cutting corners with the remaster and refusing to pay the rights for the original music.
>>583441 >But I though fags loved drag queens Some like them, others hate them. The LGBT collective isn't a single entity, and in the past decades the tensions between each group (gays, lesbians, bisexuals, queers, trannies, asexuals, etc.) have increased a lot because the protests for freedoms/equality/tolerance of some groups have been steeping on the freedoms of other groups (like MtF trans "invading" the spaces of cis lesbians and cis women in general) and/or tainted their image of the collective as a whole (like when NAMBLA/pedos tried to join the LGBT soup, or more recently the cases of teachers grooming children into coming out as trans). Of the different groups, transexuals (and specially MtF trans) have been the largest sources of conflict within the collectives and with third parties, and coincidentally they also have been having the largest exposure in media in the last years.

Intel CEO now expects chip shortage to last into 2024 >Intel’s Pat Gelsinger now expects the semiconductor industry to suffer supply shortages until 2024. >The CEO told CNBC the extended timeline for the chip crunch is now due to a lack of manufacturing equipment. >Intel on Thursday reported weaker-than-expected guidance for its fiscal second quarter. Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger told CNBC on Friday he now expects the semiconductor industry to suffer supply shortages until 2024. In an interview on “TechCheck,” Gelsinger said the global chip crunch may drag on due to constrained availability of key manufacturing tools, serving as an obstacle to expanding capacity levels required to meet elevated demand. “That’s part of the reason that we believe the overall semiconductor shortage will now drift into 2024, from our earlier estimates in 2023, just because the shortages have now hit equipment and some of those factory ramps will be more challenged,” Gelsinger said. The CEO’s comments come one day after the California-based chipmaker offered a fiscal second-quarter forecast that was lighter than Wall Street expected. Its fiscal first-quarter earnings and revenue topped analyst expectations, however. Intel shares were down more than 6% on Friday. The need for more semiconductors has been growing for years, as the world becomes more digital and processing chips go into everything from smartphones to automobiles to washing machines. The Covid pandemic caused an acute shortage, though, as factories were disrupted at the same time demand for consumer electronics took off. The shortage has had significant economic consequences and has contributed to the U.S. economy experiencing its hottest inflation since the early 1980s. Since Gelsinger took over as CEO in February 2021, Intel has announced a slew of major investments to geographically diversify chip manufacturing. The company is spending heavily to build semiconductor factories, known as fabrication plants, in the U.S. and Europe. Most of the world’s chip manufacturing capacity is now concentrated in Asia. “We’ve really invested in those equipment relationships, but that will be tempering the build-out of capacity for us and everybody else, but we believe we’re positioned better than the rest of the industry,” Gelsinger said.

>>590945 Prepare for this to be the norm, between the chips here and the GPU scalpers, we're running out of electronics, and there is no easy way to break it to the normalfags addicted to their smartphones and other electronics. Bad times ahead, I genuinely hope anons here are prepared, and I don't just mean spiritually As far as Videogames go, I think this might be the last console generation as we know it. Playstation 5 is a disaster, and electronic components needed to make even stronger consoles are not going to be worth it at that point, and xbox doesn't really need anything more than simple upgrades to keep shilling more passes, and in the near future, complete streaming subscriptions. I don't know what the future holds, but it's going to be interesting
>>590953 It certainly is interesting. The big 3 want consoles to exist since they can control everything from the OS to the marketplace to the user data collected. The big battle will be in streaming services and in marketplaces. Microsoft has an advantage, but it still has to sell games on Steam while it can control the entire marketplace on Xbox. Sony and Nintendo might be at a disadvantage where they have to become like Sega since own neither a major OS nor have a large foothold in PC gaming.
>>590953 Nah Nintendo will make at least one more console

Xbox outsold PS5 in Japan last week. Nintendo software dominated the top ten. Not a single Sony game sold more than 4k units during Golden Week which is basically their Black Friday sales period for the year, meaning the entire Sony catalogue got outsold by BOTW, a fucking Switch launch title.

New Switch ARPG incoming, sure to be an "available shortly after this presentation" announcement in the non-E3 June Nintendo Direct. Lots of notable names attached to it, including character designers from Xenoblade, game designers and a composer from Trials and Secret of Mana. If you've been wondering what Tri-Ace has been up to recently, this is it.
