>>544 >>545 You miss every shot you don't take. Multiple anons know /vg/ is a thing that exists again and have posted here, that's already a win in my book. The hard part will be maintaining any kind of activity here when most folks are happily stuck in /v/. One anon recommended posting current vidya game news/events in the gg thread and linking to /vg/. If you have any other such advice, I'd greatly appreciate it. >inb4 kys No lol

PC THREAD IS UP, >>547 PC NEWS AS OF AUGUST 31st, 2021: Japan has real-life loot boxes full of CPUs >In a country famous for putting just about anything in vending machines, Japan may have topped it all with a vending machine that dispenses CPUs. The twist? You don’t know what CPU you’re going to get. >Although we wouldn’t put it past someone in Japan to actually sell CPUs like this one day, the machine here is actually more akin to a loot box you’d find in a videogame. After dropping in 1,000 Yen (or about $9), according to Mujtaba, the machine drops a Ryzen box with random processors inside—it could be Intel, it could be AMD, it could be several chips. The setup brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “silicon lottery.” https://archive.is/HtPp0 Stranger Things 3 is being removed from Steam and GOG, but may soon appear on Netflix's gaming app >Stranger Things 3: The Game is being delisted from Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store on August 31. Anyone who owns the game on either storefront prior to its removal will continue to have full access to it, but it will no longer be available for purchase. >A reason for the delisting wasn't provided, but my guess is that Netflix is reclaiming control over its properties in order to further its own gaming ambitions. In May, the company announced a new push into gaming, which it solidified in July by hiring former Oculus content VP Mike Verdu as vice president of game development. And it's probably not a coincidence that Netflix is now testing Stranger Things 3, and Stranger Things: 1984, through its mobile app in Poland. <"Let’s talk Netflix and gaming. Today members in Poland can try Netflix mobile gaming on Android with two games, Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3. It’s very, very early days and we’ve got a lot of work to do in the months ahead, but this is the first step." t. Netflix Geeked Twitter https://archive.is/CneG4 MIR4 is blowing up on Steam despite mostly negative reviews, probably because of cryptocurrency >MIR4 launched on Steam and mobile devices last week, and its peak concurrent player count has been increasing dramatically every day since. It’s on pace to crack into Steam’s top 50 soon, and this success is coming despite the ‘mostly negative’ reviews posted for the game on Valve’s platform. I’m pretty sure cryptocurrency is the reason why. >It’s a game clearly made for casual play on mobile (the interface is obviously designed for a touch screen, with recommendations to ‘tap’ rather than ‘click’ various buttons), but there are plenty of idle games on Steam that have quietly gotten a positive response. The apparent reasons for MIR4’s early success are a lot weirder. >Developer WeMade has branched out into cryptocurrency. The company runs a wallet service called WeMix, and while none of this is mentioned on MIR4’s Steam page, press releases and the game’s official site clearly spell out that you can get a blockchain-backed currency called DRACO by playing. You can only get DRACO if you tie the game to a Facebook, Google, or Apple account, reach level 40, and collect enough of the in-game Darksteel currency (by literally mining it) to craft the cryptocurrency. >WeMade’s official estimates put the DRACO exchange rate at just under $3 USD, which ain’t Bitcoin, but it certainly ain’t nothing. The company plans to continually adjust the rate at which players can turn Darksteel into DRACO so as to preserve the currency’s value. https://archive.is/EJwjI
In my personal opinion, GamerGate itself hasn't been relevant in years as anything more than a boogeyman for the left to shit bricks at. However, the legacy of GG lives on through the ripple effects it has had on the world at large, and through the multitudes of Internet users who carry its ideals. There are teenagers living in the world today who know nothing about Gamergate, yet do the same things it did in its heyday: Meme on terrible journalists, dab on Baizuos, and floss on the bodies of dying media corporations.
>>559 The teenagers are doing the exact same shit Anita and Zoe were doing in their heyday anon.
>>630 This will go on until the Second Coming in one form or another. The best you can do is help those around you to be happy and helpful by being happy and helpful yourself.
>>630 Teenagers are a varied group of people just like any other demographic subset.
>>630 Cartoongate? Apparently there were a bunch of other gates that happened since gamergate, but they evidently weren't as big as GG
>>647 Cartoongaters are basically just folks honking their clown noses 🤡 as they watch their favorite hobby die. The best I ever saw from them was a general push to support indie comic creators over marvel/dc. Maybe America will have a good, thriving comic book industry again someday, but I doubt it's any day soon.
>>645 >The best you can do is help those around you to be happy and helpful by being happy and helpful yourself. "Those around you" will snitch you out to the feds for even displaying the slightest bit of wrongthink. Have you seen the fallout following the January 6 shitshow? >>649 >The best I ever saw from them was a general push to support indie comic creators over marvel/dc. And of course that attempt failed because any attempt to make a good... anything really, will always fail because (((Gen Zyklon))) will always despise it.
>>656 ok millennial
>>530 >Australians
