I don't fucking get sonic games. 
It was just bad slippery platformer. They marketed it as "mario but fast" at first but even in the early games it wasn't anything special. You can go somewhat fast at times, but it's purely incidental and the level design itself keeps trying to stop you with "puzzles", walls, and bad boss battles. I've heard the argument that you can go fast if you're a speedrunning sped and therefore it's good, but by that metric it just means that SM64 is a better sonic game than the mario but cool furfag ever was. 
I do concede that the music, programming, and sprites of the 2D games are good, and that the lack of speed could have been due to limitations of the time and the unpolished novel concept behind the game, making it a Bubsy 3D of going fast. But then widescreens happened, and ultra wide came along later. You would think that the more horizontal nature of displays and better hardware would allow for ultra fast side scrolling, right? Well fuck you, here's the 3D games. But at least with 3D and the camera showing you what's in front you can go fast for once, right? No, fuck you. This shit is now even slower. More "puzzles", more "combat", and the once technically impressive movement is now buggy as shit. Even the latest open world sonic game has already proven to be a complete slog from the promotional videos alone. 
When the only good sonic games are fan games I honestly don't know how it got to be this big of a franchise and how it made so many fags into furries. At least disney was quality animation, sonic just had bouncing bat tits in a bad platformer. I can the see promise it once held, but fans enjoy it even past that. I don't fucking get it.
wud u fuck a female version of yourself?
Would anyone be interested in making an RPG? I already have a plan in mind, but first I want to gauge the level of interest and what kind of game people would like to work on. I'm thinking of a very sandboxy game with no central storyline, the kind of game where people can add random quests and places and NPCs or whatever they want. The setting/story/time period are up to debate.

Or maybe something else? What kind of game would be fun to work on? And just to draw some lines:
- it would be 2D because 2D assets are much easier to make and would let anyone contribute.
- it would not be funded or sold in any capacity, it's just for fun and would be licensed under AGPL+NIGGER. This also allows using copyrighted and politically incorrect content, so if you want to add sonic the hedgehog who slaughters trannies into the game, you can just do it.
- I will set up the project and do most of the programming and set up a basic template game, but if I don't like the game then I won't do anything. As an example I'm not interested in spending my time on a VN or a porn game.
Post what you're playing and call out other anon's shit taste.

Currently playing OpenRCT2 and UFO. I can't design scenery for shit and every other creation I see is 100x better than my own.
Should I build a shrine to Isis or a shrine to Nut?
On the one hand, I am reverent towards Isis's parallels to Demeter in their roles as maternal and agricultural deities, which is further enhanced by the former's role as goddess of kingship and goddess of magic and wisdom, roles which are utterly lacking in her Greek counterpart's more meek and mild disposition.
On the other hand, I am reverent towards Nut's sheer primordial antiquity, most likely dating all the way back to Egypt's predynastic neolithic beginnings, as well as her role in Egyptian cosmology as the literal Sky, her body arching and enveloping the entire Earth and containing all the stars within it. I am really fond of her cow form because in every depiction of it I've ever seen she looks fucking pissed at the stupid humans pestering her. I can empathize with that.
Oi~ Reimu! Wha's this drawing?
Uhhh... That's not mine!

Pon-pon is a fox! But yes... Whatever. I just like to be cute!
CUTE!?
Yes.
YE JUST LIKE TO BE CUTE!?

Subject
>Sniper Ghost Warrior 2
I thought it was going to be like that sniping mission in cod 4 but with cool deeper sniping mechanics and figured that if they made a 2, surely the 1st one must've been good enough to sell a bunch and warrant a sequel but no. It is like that one mission in cod except with none of the charm and cool action sequences, and the mechanics are no more complex than battlefield 3. Played the first mission, followed the AI like a puppy for a while, went through what might as well have been an on-rails shooting gallery with no challenge, died to AI bullshit a bunch of times, got bored, uninstalled about 30 minutes in.
>Dead Island
Saw a friend of mine playing it on his 360 several years ago and it seemed cool enough, over the years I kept the name pop here and there and said hell, let's give it a spin boy, was it total uninspired ass tripe. It starts of with a first person cinematic which they couldn't even be assed to make unique for each of the characters you have to choose from. Speaking of which, one the most boring cookie cutter "diverse" possible cast of assholes, consisting of
>roided up spic loser
>chink woman
>giga nigga
>a fourth one which I can't even remember
and after you pick one of these you embark on a quest of boredom with boring npcs that give you boring fetch quests through boring dialogue I don't want to listen to, but sure, that's just the dressing, how's the meat of the game? IT'S BORING. It's melee focused but the mechanics suck, hit detection is shit, every fight is the same, the inventory system is shit, the skill trees and upgrade system is shit. I played it for 1 hour at most, did like 2 quests, hated every second of it, uninstalled.
>Dragon Age Origins
A friend of mine lent me a bunch of games and among them this piece of work, "it's good" he said, but it was a trick. I made my character look like the oldest man in existence and it turned out he had a father who ended up looking younger than my newly made avatar. Nothing short of incredible Oblivion tier UI and the first goddamned quest was to kill some spiders or wolves in a cellar or something which was just about as exciting as it sounds. Great fucking combat for a 2009 game, because who doesn't love standing still clicking on other characters and watch them fake real time fight just like in my korean mmorpgrindfests. I read it was inspired heavily by the LOTR books but fuck off, even the fellowship of the ring licensed game on PS2 was better.

Beginner Info
If you would like to try out GNU/Linux because of https://itvision.altervista.org/why-windows-10-sucks.html, you can do one of the following:
0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine (preferably using KVM or Oracle VirtualBox for newfriends).
1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything (keep in mind that the performance of live distros might be very different than from distro that was booted from your HDD, as most distros are loaded in RAM and don't include the proprietary drivers for NVIDIA GPUs or up-to-date Mesa libraries in their isos).
2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows (make sure to install Windows first, as it can "replace" GRUB or other UNIX bootloaders, and troubleshooting of Windows replacing your bootloader of choice might be painful for people that just started learning about the Linux kernel)
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux (you really shouldn't do this, if you don't know what you're putting yourself into, see: https://itvision.altervista.org/why.linux.is.not.ready.for.the.desktop.current.html).

Resources:
Use your web browser and search engine of choice. Good comparison between them is hosted here:
https://digdeeper.neocities.org/ghost/browsers.html
https://digdeeper.neocities.org/ghost/search.html
If not sure which browser to choose, just use the Tor Browser Bundle:
https://www.torproject.org/
or paste these commands to your terminal emulator of choice (please make sure to first learn what they're exactly doing):
$ sudo apt install torbrowser-launcher (Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint or just simply apt-based distros)
$ sudo pacman -S base-devel git python && git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/pikaur.git && cd pikaur && makepkg -si
$ cd .. && rm -rf pikaur && pikaur -S tor-browser (pacman-based distros)
$ xbps-install -S torbrowser-launcher (Void Linux)
If you "bricked" yourself and can't launch Xorg/Wayland, then try installing an terminal-only browser like Lynx and using it troubleshoot your mistake.

Type these commands to your terminal emulator to learn more about various commands:
$ man command
$ info command
$ command -h/--help
$ help builtin/keyword

Don't know what to look for?
$ apropos something

https://yt-dl.org/ (Either install it from pip or the distro repos)

>What distro should I choose?
1. Ubuntu, or it's flavors like Xubuntu, Kubuntu or even forks like Linux Mint (only LTS or LMDE) and KDE Neon (only LTS)
- Groovy Gorilla 20.10 is the semi-rolling release of Ubuntu (still containing mostly stable and out-of-date packages)
- Focal Fossa 20.04 is the current LTS (long term support) release of Ubuntu and thus is the most supported by corporations like Canonical (corporation behind Ubuntu) and it's partners, Valve, GOG.com and hardware manufactures in general. It just works™
2. Debian GNU/Linux
- Stable (“buster”)
It's the stable/LTS and the "true" release of Debian. Contains a lot of outdated, but stable packages and is the easiest to install release of Debian.
- Testing (“bullseye”)
Is the testing release of Debian, which still contains a few outdated packages to be more stable. It's packages later go to the stable channel.
- Unstable (“sid”)
Is the rolling release of Debian and with the help of Debian Experimental, can be nearly as rolling as Arch or even Gentoo. It's packages after enough testing (usually a week) later go to the testing channel.
>How do I install Debian's experimental packages?
https://wiki.debian.org/DebianExperimental
If you want something that has insane support and one of the largest communities out there, or just simply something that gives users more choices than Ubuntu, then this is the distro for you.
3. Arch Linux
Is a rolling distro with a semi-minimalistic approach to GNU/Linux, meaning you install it only from the console itself with pre-compiled binary packages (packages that are ready to install). Can be easily broken, if the end-user doesn't know how to avoid troubleshooting it. It's primary audience are users that want bigger control of their system. and people who want to stay on the most-up-to-date versions of their favorite programs. Good for learning how GNU/Linux works.
4. Manjaro Linux/EndeavourOS
Are forks of Arch Linux with the Calameres installer. Manjaro has it's own repositories, with package release channel similar to Debian's, while EndeavourOS tries to stay as close to Arch as it is possible. Decent, if you're one of those people which never read manuals.
5. Gentoo GNU/Linux
Is a distro that is very similar to Arch, but is much more stable and up-to-date thanks to you getting in control of configuring and compiling everything from the source code. Is also much harder/longer to setup than Arch's installation process, but compiling everything from it's source can result in overall better performance of programs that you use daily. Nothing can beat it when it comes to avoiding systemd. Perfect for learning how your UNIX systems actually work.
6. Linux From Scratch (LFS), Guix or NixOS
if somehow Gentoo didn't made you comfy with it, then with these distros you possibly can't get comfier except if you make the switch to BSD-based systems.

Meanwhile I'm a fucking pleb who somehow can't get Half-Life working or to spit out any errors when it silently fails on my new Void Linux install and nvidia's proprietary drivers have shielded me from the harsh, cold reality of editing xorg config files to change my refresh rate.

Lineage 2

We have successfully infiltrated Gludio, and we have taken up guard positions as our first step of infiltrating the society of Lineage 2 Reborn, where we will get a full scope of the local crime and find recruits to our cause.  

Clan Big Guys is here For You.  New players are welcome.  Newbie buffs end at lvl 25, but Clan Hall buffs keep giving.  They're C-grade buffs and should help get you caught up to us with very limited pain compared to usual.

For some background information, Lineage 2 is an MMO with open-world PvP (base game was released at around 2004) that was widely considered to be an Eastern equivalent of WoW - so much that even today, it retains it's popularity. We are playing on a server with an Interlude expansion (widely considered to be the best due to balancing issues) at x1 rates, which is a way to say that EXP/money gain is 1:1 from the original release.
While at a glance, it may look like yet another Korean grinder, the endgame includes massive wars for the right to kill Epic Raid Bosses or own castles - limited entry zones exclusive to player clans (guilds). Couple that with open-world PvP and it's not difficult to see that Lineage 2 offers an almost unique experience of participating in the equivalent of Mexican Gang Wars without taking the Lead Pill subdermally and generously donating your organs to the cartel.

Life's pretty alright at the moment.
Because the other one is dead.
I decided to give Shadow Warrior 3 a shot, skipping over Shadow Warrior 1(which I've dropped at level 4-ish because the gunplay was very poor) and 2(which I haven't touched because I see it's a looter shooter and I could not stand Borderlands.)
I don't hate it, but there's a lot of bullshit to it that masks what (fairly little) I like about it. The only frame of reference to "modern" FPS I have(putting aside the games by New Blood) would be what little I've played of Doom 2016(which I've dropped also by the 4-5th level because I found it was a far less interesting Painkiller) is that I liked what the game was going for, and the combat itself was pretty fun if muddied by bullshit.
<The game is short, incredibly short. It's somewhere around 10 'levels', each level taking 5-15 minutes. I've read somewhere the game could be finished before the steam refund window is up and I fully believe it. There's 0 extra content besides the challenges tab which is pointless and buggy because the weapon upgrades aren't that interesting.
<The game(or at least the version I pirated) is pretty buggy. Challenges not tracking properly. Falling through geometry. Katana elemental attacks not triggering properly. The final boss required four restarts on my end to progress a phase.
>Unlike Doom 2016 I like how the resource management works here. You spawn health by killing enemies with ranged attacks, while spawning ammo by killing them with the katana. The katana is always bound to RMB and it's actually like weighty and fun to use compared to SW1 which solely relied on you spamming the busted katana arts for anything resembling fun or weight. It's a very neat system. Except
<The Last Stand mechanic combined with the arena health drops is something I genuinely fucking hate and wished I could turn off. Basically like Doom2016 you lose health pretty quickly because some attacks can just knock off 60, 70 points without much fanfare. To counteract this the game has this cooldown mechanic where if you go down to 1hp you get to be invincible for a few seconds before going on cooldown. If you go get health and the cooldown expires you can go to 1 hp again and the cycle repeats. This is in a game where you can spawn health at will because the game usually spawns around four or five fodder enemies for quick health/ammo. This is also the game where every arena has a couple of 50 health pickups that spawn on a timer during fights.
>With the exception of the pitiful SMG and the Basilisk which I felt could be a tiny bit more powerful(It always felt like I used one more shot than I should have when killing the larger enemies, even on headshots), the gunplay is very fun. Everything sounds meaty as shit. Everything feels great to use. You have a revolver which is accurate in single shots but also can fire as "quickly as you can click" but I'm pretty sure there was a very strict cap installed. The riot gun without upgrades was neat, but when upgraded turns into a full-auto cylinder shotgun that feels really good to use. The nade launcher was neat and the stagger function of the disc spitter was cool.
>With the exception of one enemy(The guy with the drill head, who are way too tanky and you can't attack them at all times like the ox guys) every enemy in the game is quite fun and fits the arena gameplay really well. You have the two fodder enemies, one's ranged and one's melee. You have the big tanky ox guys who force you to constantly stay on the move because they hit like a truck, chase you and have a shockwave line attack. You have the long range artillery masks, a couple of area denial enemies, a really aggressive, really annoying aerial enemy, a faster melee enemy and the really tanky chaingunner hitscan enemy.
<Unlike Doom 2016 the glory kills take an eternity to execute which I already thought they took too long in that game. They also give a full health refill which I'm not too fond of
>Unlike Doom 2016 glory kills are on a fairly uncommon resource meaning at most you get two or three a fight. They also give you an enemy specific weapon/buff depending on what enemy you killed which is a system I really like and wish to see more of in a different game.
<Physics are utterly shit or broken and I can't tell which. You have a chi blast which is a pushback spell. You can upgrade it to work on larger enemies. There's the occasional spike trap that you can impale enemies on, and there's pits and ledges all around the game's arena. I've never been able to push an enemy off a ledge. Every time I do it the invisible hand of God pushes the enemy back over the ledge.
<Momentum, speed is very unsatisfying. In combat the speed's fine. But the game has these onrails platforming sections where you're sliding on a downward slope and have to jump and wallrun(automatically, on predetermined paths signaled by vines) occasionally. They're far, FAR from anything resembling fun. You move incredibly slow, it's barely challenging. Furthermore the grappling hook is completely on rails, there's no physics to it, there's no speed to it, attempting to grappling hook a point from a 90 degree angle will have wang pull a Worms ninja rope move and somehow abruptly move backwards in the air before swinging forward. There's just nothing exhilarating about it.
<The humor is, and I keep using this word but I can't find anything better, insufferable. Wang is fucking insufferable, he's Deadpool with an asian accent. Hoji is fucking insufferable. He's Wang with a whiny voice and a slight reverb. Mokoto's not even a character and she speaks in all of two cutscenes for no more than I guarantee you two minutes. I liked Zilla but he was barely in the game either. He played off Wang well, except they shove him aside for Hoji's memery really early into the game and he barely shows up afterwards. My recollection of Wang in SW1 is that he sang You've Got the Power somewhere and that's it, I don't remember him being such an annoying fuck to listen to all game but maybe he got worse later in that game.

tl;dr: More arena fights, tighten up physics, get rid of Last Stand or arena health pickups, make Wang a mute or have Zilla be the only guy he speaks to and you would have a really fun game.

It makes me really want to give Doom Eternal a shot because I like this idea of arena fights built around movement abilities and resource management(it's more like earning) through character abilities. It's not Painkiller/Serious Sam but it's still very appealing to me. Except Eternal's like 70-90gigs everywhere I look and none of the newer scene releases cracked Denuvo so I'm curious if I should just skip over it and wait for Ultrakill/Dread Templar/that one Postal game instead.

AAA shit aside, any recommendations for Doom wads or Build mods/TCs? I've recently finished HellForged for Doom, quite fun and I can't wait for Episode 2. For Build, I was going through Alien Armageddon but honestly the Alien Gladiator's episode felt pretty weak and I couldn't be interested in finishing it. If I wanted to play UT in singleplayer I'd do so, playing it in Douk just isn't fun.

Also also, Wolfenstein ET has been released on steam and I hope that gives it the playercount boost it so deserves. It's a shame Splash Damage has released nothing good since Brink Dirty Bomb was shit. SHIIIT but ET doesn't deserve death.
Hewwo! OwO

Lets have a comfy thread talking hardware and stuff.
I bought a new computer after years of running an old comp, but I'm using the old GPU from the previous one, so I'm hoping GPUs prices lower this year.

We have movie nights, we have bad movie nights, but we don't have TV nights. Therefore I'm going to do a little pilot hue program here to see if there's enough interest.
WHAT: Watch TV shows with fellow anons
WHERE: https://cytu.be/r/ZZZTV
WHEN: Wednesday nights at 7:00 EST. Check last pic if you're confused.
WHY: It helps to pad out the long week between the biweekly gamenights and weekend movie nights.
For week 1, we'll have the following:
Dilbert
>Cubicle denizen Dilbert toils away at Path-E-Tech which makes undefined products. The focus is on his survival amongst a moronic boss, hostile co-workers and his malevolent pet, Dogbert.
Miami Vice
>Esplendent with authentic 1980s music, fashion, and vibe, "Miami Vice" follows two undercover detectives and their extended team through the mean streets of Miami, Florida.
Alone
>Ten survival "experts" attempt to survive alone. The winner receives $500,000.
Hope to see you there!

Nvidia has the AI bullshitery which sounds neat if I ever decide to give neural networks another try, and also I've heard it's more stable. 
On the other hand AMD has more VRAM and it's more open. I might try to run a pure linux system depending on how proton turns out and AMD would probably be better for that. 
I'm currently leaning towards a 6600/6700 XT but I've never dealt with AMD before.

Now as you probably know, America First is this new "alt-right" movement that's slowly dominating the internet. It's the new right wing niche. It's also a show that's livestreamed by the movement's leader Nicholas J. Fuentes. Here's what I don't like about America First:

-Nick Fuentes is literally the product of racemixing, he has a spic father.
-Nick Fuentes has literally said it's "gay" to have sex with women. Yes young zoomer goyim, do not date and have sex with white women and have white babies! That's super gay!
-They glorify nigger culture. They think "lean" (a nigger product) is the shit and all the music they play in intros and in superchats is always hip nigger music. I bet those zoomers have never even heard of Johnny Rebel.
-They are literally afraid to type "nigger" in the chat. It's always "nigga" this and "nigga" that.
-Cozy.tv (the site where Nick Fuentes streams his America First show) has a bunch of nigger streamers. Le based black guys!
-It's a cult. You have to stand 100% behind every thing Nick Fuentes says, you have to stand 100% behind every thing the movement stands for and if you don't you're a "traitor" and a faggot. No individual thoughts allowed.

Those are just some of the problems I have with America First. They pretend to be for the white race, for white people. But instead their leader is a mutt and they glorify niggers and nigger culture. Yeah they call out kikes and kike control, but that's simply not enough.
Now, that being said, sure, it's fun to watch America First every now and then. It's entertaining if you've got some time to kill.
But is it going to be the next huge political movement that's going to save America? Absolutely not.
When I was 14 me and my friend bullied a 12 year old girl who was chinese and lived on our street for a few days and she told her mom. Her mom and the girl came over to the house and the mom demanded I apologise for calling her kid a chinky and shoving her onto the ground. The girl said she wanted to spank me after I apoIogised and my mom made me take my jeans and underwear off and the girl spanked me. My mother failed as a parent that day by putting me through that humiliation and she will never be forgiven.

For those who don't know, Master Duel is Konami's first official (as far as I am aware) online Yugioh game using the traditional rules. Its Free-to-Play and the grind isn't too bad compared to Duel Links, the mobile spin of the card game.

I demand that we talk about monster hunter and then hunt monsters and talk about how Hunting Horn is the best weapon. 
Been playing Rise on PC and its ok. Not grabbing me as hard at the other games though but fun. I am still luke warm on the Hunting Horn changes but its not the end of the world and I like what they did with some of the other weapons. What I am pissed off about is the new silkbind skill for hunting horn just going to be the sideways recital instead of a new attack. At least its not lance. I have some grips about the game, namely that even on 4 player hunts you still take the dogs or palicos and their attack effects are so overwhelming it can be hard to see what you are doing. Supposedly there is going to be a setting to turn that down with the new update. 
The new sunbreak monsters look neat, I'll be interested in what they pull out of their ass for the final big bad monster considering the theme is western yokai, if they keep to that with the final monster. 

For oldergames I was messing around in 4U. Fun, I wish there was a farm though. I've also been meaning to give XX a go, I hear its pretty fun. 
So anons, what have you been hunting?
Something I've noticed with the failure of art teaching in schools is something that parallels with the failure of teaching programming in schools: Lack of structure.

When I say 'structure' I mean the teaching of craftwork that can be used as baselines to make things solid, sound and good. pic related is one of 25 pages dedicated to guidelines and overall structure of drawing figures. Anyone can draw or make art, but everyone knows the difference between good and bad art- except for idiots, that is. 

What I'd like to know, is how this can be paralleled to it's programming equivalent. I hear from programmers about how important math is- and I agree, but my problem with that, is that math's emphasis feels like it's either for magus-tier programming, or is so basic that it immediately fades into the background. Because of this, I feel like I've learned all I can at this stage but nobody knows anything on the level up except for pros who want peers rather than students.

I've heard "just do it" or "practice dude" but here's the thing: practice doesn't make perfect, it makes permanent. Trying to undo the damage of bad habits is effort on top of learning things the right way, the only saving grace is that is gets easier as you do it more. 

In conclusion, what is good programming structure? How can use it to be a better programmer and actually feel more than a just like a permanewb?

Fullderp is a game where one of us declares himself the champ and takes a ragtag team of six Pokémon assembled by anons into an online competitive Pokémon battling simulator.
To quote one of Showdown's mods...
>@MacChaeger: None of these people are youtubers
>@MacChaeger: They impersonate verlis to to gain notoriety and attract new members
>@MacChaeger: These people regularly trick others into getting locked
>@MacChaeger: this is the single most toxic group of players on PS

How does it work?
After the current champ calls "new champ", the first anon to claim the title is our champ. He uses the first six legal Pokémon suggested after his claim as his team. Champ can also call "new team" when the old one became stale (rule of thumb: 40-60 minutes). Champ plays in National Dex unless specified otherwise.
Absolutely no experience is necessary and everything is done in-browser.

Rules
1. Champ can't forfeit, intentionally throw a match, or timer stall.
2. Champ may not edit a set without the suggester's permission.
3. All Pokémon must be nicknamed. If the sugg didn't have a name, champ makes one up.
4. Don't suggest twice, unless your last sugg was 15 minutes ago or champ explicitly asked for resuggs.
5. Champ should replace resuggs with fresh suggestions that come in later.
6. Don't spam the catalog with threads.

What do you think the new age of fighting games will look like?

The pandemic has fundamentally drawn a line between the older generation/community of fighting game players and the newer generation who started playing/getting serious during lockdowns and only know netplay as the default (of course, most of the previous generation was the same, but that's beside the point).  How do you think this will change the face of the FGC, such as it is, in the coming years?  I think the single most prominent change is that the crybullying faggot player archetype will become even more common in the FGC than it was before - people already got upset at offline events, but online events enable them to cultivate their own neuroses to a far higher degree without being forced to interact with other people.

On the bright side, I think (or would like to believe) that fighting game developers are aware that now more than ever, they need to ship a complete product.  People are generally pissed off paying for games with small rosters, no meaningful single player content, and multiple season passes of DLC planned.  Street Fighter 6 seems poised to remind people what's fun about SF, given that it seems not to be a rushed, half finished mess like SFV was, which is good.  Games from other developers like SNK (SamSho 2019, KoFXV), ArcSys (DBFZ, GBVS, GGStrive, DNF Duel), and Bamco (Soul Calibur VI, Tekken 7) all seem to have crippling flaws in one way or another despite their appealing qualities.
SNK's games barely function and have atrocious UIs.  ArcSys's games are much the same, but at least the netcode works when you aren't being prevented from joining due to server traffic errors.  Bamco really only has Tekken these days, and they're doing their best to drive community goodwill into the ground with slapdash balance patches, poor community interaction, and aggressive DLC practices like charging $4 for frame data.

Anecdotally, I think a lot more people are playing on buttonbox controllers; apparently there were tonnes of them at Combo Breaker, and a lot of the people I remember from my local scene are starting to use them.  Things like playing on PC, various brands of prebuilt button boxes (Snackbox Micro, Hitbox, Mixbox) and the inherent shittiness of arcade sticks have made the prospect of using a keyboard or buttonbox much more appealing.

If you have a simple one-liner question, ask it here.
ITT ask to be spoonfed anything, from images, music, archives, torrents... Anything, really.
For example:

Does anyone have a scan for the 4th issue of the Answer Me magazine? I have the first three ones, but I've been too lazy to find the last one myself.
You can also ask for small things, such as:

Does anyone have an image of Brendan Fraser with an expression suiting of someone wanting to kill oneself? Thanks.
After stuff like Petscop and I guess a resurgence of Sonic.exe/NES Godzilla it seems a fair bit of indie devs want to try their hand at this kind of "outwardly innocent looking game THAT'S ACTUALLY HAUNTED/HORROR SPOOKY WOOOO". This is a thread on these type of games if any anon has played/heard of anything and would like to talk about it.
I went through a few of them, on itch and steam, and a few through videos like Alpha Beta Gamer or ManlyBadassHero's channels but the one I want to bitch talk about is Andy's Apple Farm.

So andy is a really neat concept initially. You have this cutesy, "edutainment" looking game where you walk around and do simple minigames for your friends. You had a few neat "something's off" moments where a voice line is reversed and a sprite glitches out in a way that's believable  in the context of the game.
Unfortunately that's the end of any subtleties or nuances when it comes to the "horror" in a lot of these games, because they're very much Sonic.exe tier when it comes to the scares. 
See this is a game with a story and as such some idiot decided it's really scary for the game to completely break suspension of disbelieve and have dumb shit such as
>"cutscenes" in a completely different artistic style from the game itself. The pixel art style is different, the character design is completely different(instead of anthromorphized fruits and animals it's pixel art human beings) and the sound effects don't have the "crunch" to mimic the CRT style of the actual game.
>It also sometimes skips to "news footage" style cutscenes with photos of actual real people which is even dumber.
>HYPER-REALISTIC EYES WOOOOOOO
It's so fucking dumb. These games just slowly building up more and more believable "glitch scares" would be an excellent way of having someone shit their pants but instead it does the dumbest shit imaginable, in the quickest ways possible to completely kill the mood.
Distorting the music or sound, manipulating the sprites so that parts of it doesn't load or the palette is broken, having the game "freeze" on scenes that make the player uneasy(like having the game freeze when the sprites are looking at the screen), those would be excellent ways of horror. But no, hyper-realistic. Webm is from a previous build but it shows the level of dumb shit going on here.(might want to lower the volume because it gets fairly loud)

Have you played any similar games, hopefully of a decent variety? Would you like to bitch at any shit games as well?
and the show goes on
This is Grizzly, your overlord. I am aware that this board has been dead for quite some time, and that is my fault. I have been very busy with life's endless stream of bullshit and as a result have fallen behind in not just my lifting, but every other meaningful thing I've wanted to do with my life as well. Now that I'm working back into a manageable schedule, I'd like to use this thread for a little experiment.
This thread (and hopefully the ones that come after it) will be a daily journal for anons to chronologue their fitness journeys. After each workout, post what you did, how long you did it, what you did it with, and anything else that happened that pertains to fitness. There is already a similar thread like this one >>32 focused on running, but I would like to expand the workout journal idea to all forms involved, including lifting, cardio, dieting, and anything else that may be of interest to fellow /fit/izens. Yes, it is blogposting and I will not attempt to disguise it as anything else. But it's a good way for anons to share advice with each other on maximizing gainz and bringing up the PPH for the board as a whole.
So with all that being said, tell us about your workout today. You DID lift today, right?
It's funny that just when convenience such as larger storage capacity for discs and internet updates came along, videogames got worse.
Cartridges, CDs and early DVDs all had very limited storage. Developers back then had to really get deep into the consoles to try and fit everything they wanted. Games like RR4 and Crash Bandicoot still amaze me how good they look and how they still hold up today. Nowadays you can just drop your unoptimized piece of shit and don't care. Just compare GTA: San Andreas vs GTA IV.
Most games made today could easily fit into the original xbox if optimized well.

How could I make money stealing? I really don't want to get a felony on my record, but I don't have any source of income. I'm a NEET with a non-24-hour circadian rhythm that prevents me from getting a job. I'm currently learning all sorts of tech stuff and I may get a job programming in the future, but that's not going to happen any time soon. I really don't want to steal from individuals. I'd prefer to steal from wealthy major corporations like Walmart. I actually stole $2000 from Walmart one day through a credit card my friend and I found on the sidewalk outside near a university campus on the weekend. It was pretty based. I actually got a PS4 Pro when it was brand new. It had literally just come out a few days prior.

There must be some sort of nearly fool-proof way to make money stealing.
Despite being anon you somehow meet a girl. You're wary of her at first but you slowly open up to her and end up enjoying your time together, even if a lot of it is just spent talking about how the world is shit. 
She can be rather awkward at times, which you somehow don't mind, but today is different. She seems hesitant and distracted by something. Minutes then hours go by but nothing. Just as you're thinking of parting she finally grabs your hands, her grasp a bit forceful, and she looks deeply into your eyes.
The girl then reveals she's an ancient goddess that was sealed away for trying to destroy the world. She gives you irrefutable proof and you have no choice but to accept it's neither a joke nor lunacy. She loves you and she knows you also believe the world is rotten, which is why she wants to destroy it. You'll be together in your final moments as the universe ceases to be, if only you'll help her in the ritual.

FEATURING: ALIEN VS. PREDATOR, TRIO THE PUNCH: NEVER FORGET ME..., AND THE PRESELECTED SURPRISE GAME, PULIRULA
Somewhere near the woods lies a gas station, neatly placed seemingly in the middle of nowhere; however, it is far from desolate. For there anons from all around gather inside a room. A room filled to the top with arcade machines. There, anons enjoy the evening drinking, calling each other faggot and just having a good old time.
>What is this?
Anons vote for some games and play them until they beat them or lose. Arcade games that don't take long to complete and reward skill. Once finished they post their score and see who did the best. They give others advice, share what they think of the game, call each other casuals, say which character they would fuck and more.
>How much time do I have to play?
One month or until winners are announced. New threads are posted at around 00:00 UTC-8 on the first Saturday of the month.
>How do I play them?
Read the text file posted with the OP.
>Where do I get them?

ALIEN VS PREDATOR

>lots of neat variant aliens, with their own AI patterns and abilities 
>has a dedicated gun button, which is fucking awesome
>your gun either has a heat gauge or unlimited reloads, depending on your character

TRIO THE PUNCH: NEVER FORGET ME...
>weirdcore action game by Data East
<it's basically a shitpost

<that it never stops playing
<ever

PULIRULA
>a belt scroller by Taito with a fairy tale aesthetic

>not much in the way of combos, but enemies don't take many hits so it balances out
New disney show "baymax". Literal tranny propaganda to kids.
people who aren't able to give or downright refuse to give clear and concise instructions when asking for anything should be shot, they fucking expect you to read their mind and guess what they want instead of just saying so, and then have the audacity of getting angry at you for not understanding. holy shit fuck them.
Just found out my gf dated one of my friends a couple years before we met. I mog him into oblivion, but I'm feeling cucked because he fucked a younger and hotter her and I already felt like I was putting more into this relationship than I should. I don't know if I'll be able to get the thought that he might have gotten better experience out of my head. The worst part is that I have nobody to talk to this about except venting on imageboards. Call me a normalfag, but both he and I are anons even though I'm pretty sure he only ever used cuckchan /pol/. He was always a redpill PUA faggot, so it makes me feel like she's more retarded than I realized.
Remember those two TF2 mods (TF2 Classic and OpenFortress) that got their downloads C&D'd like that was Valve's higher priority than the bots? How the guys behind them assuaged people that Valve was interested in making their shit "official"? Turns out they actually didn't give a shit and ignored them once the downloads were gone, and unlike most cucked fandevs who never fight against Daddy Corporation, these guys found their balls and put their downloads back up while explaining everything that's been going on.

Hello guys I'm trying to learn magick, can you provide me with some good material for beginner?
Really, no alchemy thread? It's not like we have a /fringe/ around here, so let's get cracking!
Everything you need to get started:
>Mortar and Pestle
>Satchel
>Vessels
>Access to Heat/Water
>Your Tongue
>Reference Material
>Choice of Ingredients
>Bonus: Retort (Any Type)
For the more experienced lads here, how are your gardens coming? I honestly don't grow a wide enough variety of ingredients, but I get by with foraging for the tricky stuff like mushrooms.
Any progress on the metals front friends?
