That is all.
And other platform fighters/Smash clones, I guess.

I saw the trailer and some videos on the devs' twitter, and was initially intrigued until I saw that they weren't changing the control scheme.  So instead of something intuitive where the attacks are split up among different buttons and movement is controlled in a way that doesn't make your hands cramp, there is simply "the smash bros control scheme" where you need to use two analogue sticks and a bunch of shoulder buttons to have any hope of controlling your character.  That said, Rivals of Aether was a pretty neat Smash clone and I was optimistic for it at the start of its lifespan before it was consumed by esports merchandising and furfags.  Perhaps this one will turn out different.  Perhaps I'm just in denial.

The switch to 3D graphics and character models made me leery, but so far the characters and animations look decent to good.  There's some suspension of disbelief lost, but the first game had such atrociously low resolution sprites that almost anything would be an upgrade.  Some of the HUD elements were a single pixel wide.

Some of the mechanical changes shown so far:
- Replacing the parry with a traditional shield that can be broken.
- Replacing the up special > wall jump recovery loop with traditional ledge grabbing.  Not sure if two characters can grab the ledge at the same time.
- The addition of grabs, which seem standard except for the option of a special pummel that does something related to your character's mechanic instead of just doing a bit of damage.

More than anything, looking at what the devs have accomplished (led by Dan Fornace, who worked on Killer Instinct 2013 before going independent for RoA) has surprised me.  Apparently the setting for RoA has gotten spinoff comics, plushies, and entire games like the April Fool's parody VN Lovers of Aether, the mobile card game Creatures of Aether, and the upcoming dungeon crawler roguelite Dungeons of Aether.  Furry parody VN mobile card game dungeon crawler roguelite please help me I'm drowning in search engine keywords blargh

Despite the obvious furfag baggage, I generally like anthro/animal characters when they're done well, and I can tell that Dan Fornace does genuinely care about the game and its players; he seems to express that care through indie game guest characters/stages, esports tie-in colour palettes, and cosmetic pets that obstruct the visual clarity of a game, but I suppose that's his style.  At the very least, he clearly understands the value of modding and has integrated the PC version of the game with the Steam workshop to support custom stages and characters so players can put their very own donut steels into the game.  It's a shame that the player base for RoA mostly seems to be SSBM players who weren't quite good/dedicated enough to become tourneyfags in that game (which I can't exactly blame them for) and that it released in such a bare bones state that they were the only ones willing to give it a chance in the first place.  If there had been a bit more content or casual appeal at launch then I think RoA would have stood as a solid little indie game rather than "that smash clone with furries."

Did any of you play RoA earlier in its life span or take it seriously?  Was RoA the best smash clone?  I'd like to hear any more granular details if there's something I missed, and I know there are a fair number of anons who enjoy(ed) Smash Bros and its imitators.

With E3 come and gone and the news no longer being horded by developers, what are your thoughts on the next couple years of the genre? 

It seems the anime fighters are going well for themselves with GG, and especially MB, as of late. Street Fighter is just packing more and more shit into this new game of theirs, and it looks like it might not be total shit like 5 was. King of Fighters is just chugging along doing its thing, I've read people say the matchmaking has gotten better for them since the last update, and others that say the opposite. Moron Kombat is garbage. FighterZ is still getting played. Tekken 8 has a small amount of footage out.

Why all games are about killing, about murder?
Not just shooter games. Even "nice" and "friendly" medieval rpg and mmorpg, they are all about killing, killing humans and monsters. In rpg/mmorpg you do the same thing like in shooter games, you just kill with a sword instead of a gun.
Humans are psychopaths and they only have fun and pleasure from murder of innocent beings. We need to exterminate humans.

Holy shit just imagine someone playing mmorpg. The guy is basically looking at screen 11 hours and clicking on "monsters" to kill them, murder innocent beings. He murders thousands of them per day. That's how mentally sick humans are.

Why you only play murder games? And they most popular?
Any games without killing exist? puzzle games? sportsball?
95% of games are about murder and violence. What does it say about humans?
>what's this?
A thread for the organization and development of a VN with minor puzzle/adventure game elements starring Libbie the Cyber Oryx.  Previous thread: >>118872 (archive: https://archive.ph/z17yE)

>what will the game be like?
A simple, short puzzle/adventure game presented like a VN and inspired by old Flash adventure/"sim" games.  We'll be working in Ren'py, and the game will mostly be slice-of-life comedy and light romance.

>what did you accomplish in the last thread?
- Progress on script and new demo 9see below).
- New drawfag who refined his sketches into final base illustrations (pics related).
- More detail on final day and endings.
- Got a gitgud repo set up to prevent bottlenecks/make saving progress easier.
Our progress is pretty glacial, but we're still making progress.  We may also be getting a new codefag, since the current one doesn't have a lot of free time.  As always, anyone is welcome to contribute.

The most recent demo is for day 3: https://files.catbox.moe/zlm5fa.zip - there's also a Linux version: https://files.catbox.moe/c5cg72.bz2

And this is not a problem? How about changing the way we think of towns and cities so we can operate more locally. If you don't think American suburbs need to be bulldozed yet then you cannot claim to care about "sustainability".

Also here's a pop quiz. What's the most efficient form of long-distance transport by far in terms of it's capability to move people around, has been electric for 100s of years, can operate on AC/DC instead of batteries, and is significantly faster than a car? It's called a train.

'Rebuild the board's userbase and activity through simple, but effective methods'
'1. Post across the entire board'
Activity creates activity. Use threads you like, make new ones if topics don't exist.  Easy examples are Drawthreads and Friday Night threads, go request or draw something right now.
'2. Recruit and recover lost or potential anons'
Use this site's OC and features to entice anons if necessary when recruiting, just inform that we are alive.
Here's some sites and links with at least some confirmed anons that can be recruited again:
Other sites that might yield fruitful results and have anons (art sites use an account so you can see 18+ content):
Somewhere on Telegram
Just searching up GG or 8chan-related terms on certain places/sites can get you possible results.
'3. Make your own OC/Memes/Content'
Doesn't matter what it is even if its just simple edits or full-on drawings or webms, just make it and have fun. Ask in thread for software recs if necessary.
'4. Encourage or create fun events, activities, projects, etc.'
Think things like 8chanmania, weekly streams, re-translation projects, demo days, or zzz's gaming magazine for example. If you want to do something, try making or reviving it, it can't hurt and these things are great for the board.
'5. Use other boards'
All it takes for a board to grow is at least 2 dedicated anons using it. Don't be afraid to make a post, check places periodically, shill, or what have you. Don't force discussions to boards, just encourage the usage of them.

I don't want work in fast food anymore 

I don't want to to deal with mangers blaming me for everything. 

I am tired of being treated like a dog. 

I am tired of everyone screaming my name to to do something else when I am in the middle of talking to a customer. I feel like I slowly losing hearing and I think have ringing ears when I get home sometimes.

I feel like am running everywhere and I can't think straight because of how fast everything is.  

I am tired of having my boss taking too long to change the cash register while customers are angry about not having the change because missing it ones and quarters in the register. 

I am tired of giving out the food then getting yelled at for food at wrong car parked in the curbside because someone else parked at #4 

I don't care if I end up homeless anymore I feel burnt out and hopeless this life isn't worth living anymore. I am going to be ending up with a bad back and physically disabled if I keep working like this. I can't do everything all at once, all at the same time, it's just too much
I am excited when I see the phrase "dead aliens." They have caused a lot of pain. 

Starting with heavy metal poisoning to be forced to watch a movie about a guy and some aliens with that metal, my kidneys have been on fire since 2014. The kidneys have never recovered because starting in 2015 I had no choice but to drink caffeine and hydration powders to get rid of the head pain and lethargy. Which have both now rotted my teeth. 

The alien dream psychic attack that paralyzes my body and head from moving in order to inflict telepathy pain, has caused nerve damage, pain, and loss of strength in my hand, arm, and has injured my hip on several occasions. No body is designed to hurt itself while sleeping. In addition, the continuous paralysis has deprived me of 7 years of proper hydration during wake cycles. Several years of painkiller and acid beverage use has now created an ulcer or some sort of stomach damage. Continuous alien dream psychic attack becomes a cascade of complications and physical torture.

I have not slept since 2015. 

Its brilliant: Major kidney damage then thousands of perpetual headaches with sleep deprivation and duration control, the proofless soft kill, and the human system is kept in a state of excitotoxicity, pain, non-healing, and after awhile, all systems break, complications inevitably occur due to perpetual remedy caused by perpetual etheric infliction. Making sure that nothing of the body improves with sleep, and the financial-medical system around the human target is against them. Kidney damage and headache, are the pivots. But most of all INFLICT PAIN. 

They knew all of that before they started, such is the depth and completeness of their knowledge. Truly the gods. Or they didnt know, which proves theyre stupid fuckin boomers whose ugly is inseparable from their implementations, as is the rule. But who am I to question their greatness and rob them of their rightful glory? 

Around 10 internal injuries, and aliens daily bullshit is supposed to be the center of my universe, lol. For those unenlightened: Pain is worse than death.

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

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:
>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.
>Ten survival "experts" attempt to survive alone. The winner receives $500,000.

Gundam Battle Universe has a bonus mission where you have to fight every Gundam (except, for some reason, the Pixy) that existed in the Universal Century up to F91 at the game's release. It's a stupidly hard fight even if you've unlocked what are effectively cheat codes through getting a max rank on every non-bonus mission. Winning gets you the Last Shot Gundam, which is the Gundam after the last fight in the original series where it loses an arm and head. The result is just the original Gundam (good for missions during the original series, laughably underpowered for anything set later) whose only secondary weapon is "Voice" which plays random Amuro voice clips (even if you have someone else pilot it)

I'm tired, I'm almost 30. I feel lonely and want to meet people but everyone sucks. I want to do things but I need money to do things, "get a job" you say, but all jobs are soul sucking underpaid slavery disguised as a job, "you should've studied hard and gotten a STEM degree" you say, but what if I don't like STEM? I never envisioned being an engineer as a child. Then again my parents never cared to find out what I really wanted to do and never had me express myself. I noticed this pattern whenever I read Wikipedia pages of famous successful people, they always have a part that says "his parent sent him to X school/got him private lessons of X at age 7 because he liked that growing up" and they built their career off of that which they liked. By contrast, my parents parked me in front of video games by age 3, divorced when I was 5, and never raised me past yelling at me for liking the things I liked, like video games, which they introduced me to, instead of encouraging me to make something off of it, or probing me for other interests. And then some 20 years later they're still doing the same, nagging me about not having a job, a social life, friends, whatever and calling me a failure.
I'm certainly resentful towards them but I understand it's not entirely their fault for failing at parenting. Their failures are but a symptom rooted in the demoralization of the west, it stems from their parents not teaching them how to raise children and society's values becoming more and more liberal with time. Sure, if they weren't such simple minded, self absorbed, hypocritical retards, they could've known better, but I reckon many successful and/or accomplished people were born into humble families who managed to figure out "hey, maybe we should take care of our children, that seems kind of important".

In other words, I hate kikes.
Liru loves us and wants us to be happy!  I want to convert to Liruism!

Myself, I've been playing a lot of shit in the last few days. Decided to pick up some older vidya I had bought when I was in my BUYAN phase some years ago.
>Gundam: Target in Sight
Launch title for the PS Triple. I've read faggots on the Internet ripped a fat one on this one. Bought it for 3 bucks because I saw a huge fukken robot on the cover so I couldn't care less about it being shit or not.
The gameplay is kind of simple. After you've picked either faction you're off to do a campaign worth of missions shooting other robots and shit. Controls are clunky at first hand, and it took me a while to discover the second jump, but once you get the gist of it the Condams feel great to use.
There's a gimmick in this game and it's that different parts of the body can receive multiple kinds of damage. And so, either you or the CPU can have its robot maimed, dismembered or decapitated. Most of the time it's hard to pick a robot apart with the gun so the hand-to-hand combat seems the most apropiate if you want to make a giant torso walking on its two legs out of the enemy. This would lead to some degree of strategy on the player whether to take on an enemy whole or having him prancing around without the ability to hurt you, though I swear I've seen other Goddamns shoot me with both of their arms removed.
This gimmick, however, comes with its own brand of bullshit. Since you can get maimed too, damage will rack on your mech. What's more, it's damage that won't go away: you need the robot to rest an entire mission in the garage for the reparations to take full effect. Hence, you need to buy a new set of robots so that the older one is repaired. Would pretty simple, didn't the robots take 2 entire missions to be sent to you. This means that sometimes you'd need to sit on your battle scarred mechs until you finally receive your new mechs and have them sit a mission so they get repaired. The game also expects you to upgrade your bots when you're not using them, though good luck with that since they first need to be repaired in order for any enhancement to take effect.
The only thing that's truly egregious in this game is the framerate. Right off the bat a silky smooth 25fps is to be expected on every mission. Add in five Mobile Suits into the field and ten small tanks and the game now runs at 5fps. Granted games form this generation are expected to be optimized like dog feces but I got kind of used to it, kind of like a battered wife.
Out of all games on this post, this one's the one I'm the most inclined to see through the end. It felt kind of engaging for once, and since I don't know my Armored Cores I'm not knowledgeable enough to be picky, even if this game becomes bullshit at times and expects you to throw away your save and start anew if you want to get a fair shot at some missions.
Only bought this one because of the price tag. JPGs aren't generally very cheap on the second hand market, so I gave this one a go.
Fresh off the title screen, the entire cast is made out of homosexuals wearing some of the most retarded outfits I have ever seen in a videogame. Granted I'm not a JRPG man, so perhaps this is more of a cultural shock than anything, though they felt way more retarded than I anticipated. Someone more knowledgeable would point out to the character designer cocksucking Nomura or something, but I don't know myself.
Since I want to give this one a thorough chance, I'm trying to warp my head around the battle system. If I've understood correctly:
<wait until attack gauge is filled to attack monster
<input attack at the exact moment the game tells you (kind of like in Legend of Dragoon)
<if you manage to stay on rhythm, you get a 2x damage multiplier you get to use at any point on the battle
That's somewhat simple. There's more to it though:
<there are some balls with letters written on them on the top of the screen
<these balls tell you what element is dominating on the field
<if one element is strong on the field, the party member that uses said element or a similar one (Water-Ice, Mountain-Earth, etc) will be buffed
<there's some pole on the map you can throw runes at to tune the battle to a certain element
There are a million other things to keep track of, too:
<there are three different playstyles you can switch to in the middle a battle
<your moveset levels up in-battle on top of leveling up in-game 
<got to remember those multiple fighting stances for your party members too
<better check out how friendly your party members are towards you in a battle
<how about the enemies' level of animosity towards my party? that's another meter on screen
<everything else on the UI
It doesn't sound that complicated since I'm glossing over most details here. I genuinely don't know about most JRPGs but this one had me sit through 20 minutes of raw information in an oversaturated tutorial I barely made heads or tails of. Is this the usual with these kind of games on the PS2? The battle UI itself looks like a photoshop parody.
Still, I've told myself to stomach this one through and through. There's a chick with some fantastic midriff on your starting party so not everything's terrible, right?
>War of the Monsters
Decided to finish my arcade playthrough. What I did not expect is that this arcade mode was going to take me 3 more hours to finish.
It isn't much of an arcade experience when the bosses take a million hits to die and go through a million periods, the bloody bastards. Fuck that asshole throwing me Xbox logos and specially fuck that stupid fucking plant you can't attack without harming yourself.
Surprisingly enough the game loop isn't much to write home about. Sure enough the engine is a marvel for an early PS2 game and the game runs decently fast, but the arena styled gameplay can get old very quickly, specially when both you and the CPU are chasing health upgrades all across the map. There's of course some thought put into the game, seeing there are some decent combo strings and more special attacks than the strict necessity to program in, and yet it still feels like a half-assed experience. Perhaps it's the limitations of the arena format itself but I wasn't having the grandest of times here.
Worst of all, I couldn't unlock anything decent after my hard fought playthrough. I got 89 thousand points, and the gay ass dragon needs 200 thousand points to unlock as so with the ayy lmao. I'm clearly not bringing anyone to play versus with so unlocking stages felt pointless, and I'm not going to spend God knows how many hours into collecting more in-game cash for that. I'm done with it.
>Simpsons: Hit & Run
GTA that's itself a game for children, for children. There are some hard missions here with their fits of rage, specially on those missions that require you to drive a certain car, but overall it felt like I was going out on errands the entire time.
I've found a way to cheese most fetch missions. Given that the timer stops once you have to reach out to some guy to talk, I can park the car somewhere nearer the next checkpoint, go back to talk to the dude, then hop in the car with the usual timer set and half the distance traveled. The programmers clearly didn't give enough of a shit to fix it, so why not exploit it while I'm at it.
Had another fun bit with Lisa's Cletus mission where I got Cletus to derail from the main path into a dead end. The objective was to damage Cletus' van as you're chasing it so it would drop roadkill for me to collect. Given that I had pushed him in between two buildings, the AI's pathfinding would try to parallel park out of it, to which I could keep ramming on him until I had the necessary amount of roadkill. Only took me half the timer to a mission I was struggling to complete.
It's a timekiller of sorts I'll give it that. However, it doesn't go much further than that, so I would only recommend if mortally bored.
Discuss /tech/-related news.
What will happen if section 230 is nuked?
What the fuck is there to do on the internet? I have about two hours to kill on a weekday and I'm so fucking BORED. If I were at my pc I could find a few things to do, but since I am forced to browse on my phone on a workday, I can hardly find a thing to do. I try to be somewhat productive and read the news or something, but it's the same thing every day. Can't really do anything here because it's pretty slow. How do you cunts kill time?
We talk all the time about our preferred operating systems, programs, and window managers, but how do you think software affects people beyond productivity? Can an operating system push people towards creativity or make them lazy? Can chat protocols or different kinds of message boards shape how people think and act? Does using a window manager or the raw virtual console benefit you as a person more than suffering through Gnome Shell? Or are all our software choices just personal tastes that don't affect anything?
I fucking love these videos.
Repost of the Julay /tech/ sticky with some minor edits: https://archive.vn/znAXT
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).

Use your web browser and search engine of choice. Good comparison between them is hosted here:
If not sure which browser to choose, just use the Tor Browser Bundle:
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

Check the wikis (most troubleshoots work for all distros):
8chan /tech/'s wiki on GNU/Linux:
4chan /g/'s wiki on GNU/Linux:

Watch videos on JewTube:
https://github.com/omarroth/invidious/wiki/Invidious-Instances (Invidious is unreliable now, keeping this link anyways)
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?
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.

Even more info here:

If you don't care about having a modern desktop and want to avoid systemd, make sure to give the distros listed by this website a try:

I think it's worth having a thread about ARM linux as it's on the verge of becoming viable in phones and mobile devices. Discussion around whether or not this hardware is or will ever be worth actually buying is important. I understand that a lot of the PINE64 hardware is explicitly not consumer ready, but I've seen some videos of the recently officially launched Librem5 that shipped the product with a fucked screen protector that wasn't applied properly, and that's a fucking $800+ device.

>Previous Thread
General scifi thread, I'm going to assume we're allowed to talk about shows here as well.
I finished watched Farscape and thought it was good, I liked most of the characters but it all felt a bit jumbled, like trying to do too much in too little time. I also didn't think it was made clear which side Scorpius was on. I think there was a moment somewhere towards the end where he decided what he was fighting for but the whole time I was just waiting for him to backstab everyone else again like he did the dozen times beforehand. I think overall it had too many characters that it was trying to juggle around and they didn't really have time to flesh out any of the secondary characters as much as the primary cast.
Because of all that I think I like Lexx more, even for all the flaws it has in the later seasons. It kept it weird but simple, only a few real characters you have to keep track of and the much slower pace. The universe was also more interesting but they never really explain much of anything in it. I want to know more about His Shadow and the League of 20,000 Planets and how it was created, but after the first season it's pretty much mothballed and rarely mentioned again or explored in any kind of detail. Season 3 tried too hard to be 2deep4u and season 4 was a shitshow on all fronts, at least the finale was good though.
I have an endless craving for late-90s/early-2000s scifi but it seems I'm running out. What other shows should I watch now that my backlog is clear?

Some hastily written notes...
* everyone thinks UNIX (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tc4ROCJYbm0) is still the state-of-art. Ignorants praise Windows, not knowing it's originally a dumbed down clone of VMS that has some patches ported from OS/2 (https://www.itprotoday.com/compute-engines/windows-nt-and-vms-rest-story). Some say that Windows is also still mainly a single-user system that emulates a multi-user system. I think we are living Higurashi tier time loop when it comes to operating systems...
 (and CPUs: X86 is relic from the times of Vaxen. ARM, PowerPC/Power ISA, MIPS, RISC-V are more modern and better. Even modern X86 CPUs converts CISC to RISC in the microcode!)
* Plan9 (9front? Also, see plan9port and 9base), BeOS (Haiku) and TempleOS were the last innovative operating systems that I know of. Even the OSDev people imitate UNIX.
* It's awful that a misbehaving device driver can take down the whole system. Microkernels (e.g. MINIX, GNU Hurd, seL4) or muh """hybrid kernels""" (e.g. DragonFly BSD, Haiku, ReactOS I don't know if modern Windows has a hybrid kernel.) should be the norm. MINIX is incidentally perhaps the most used OS because ((( Intel ME ))) uses it as a basis for the CIAware that runs on our fucken CPUs!
* Nearly all criticism of UNIX is historic stuff: The UNIX-HATERS Handbook (https://web.mit.edu/~simsong/www/ugh.pdf a joke), Multicians (https://www.multicians.org/) and LispM (http://fare.tunes.org/LispM.html) users...
* Worse is better or do the right thing? https://www.dreamsongs.com/RiseOfWorseIsBetter.html & https://www.dreamsongs.com/WorseIsBetter.html
* Some modern UNIX-related innovations: 9p, DTrace, Solaris Zones & FreeBSD Jails, Nix & Guix...

No, you can't pick more than one.
This is a thread about character-dependent gameplay (CDG) and their usage in video games. Character-dependent gameplay, as I define it, is an element of video games where the gameplay mechanics and plot points are based upon the characters you play as. 
For example, the Resident Evil games have a system where the choice of player character not only affects the mechanics, but also the plot points and characters. In RE1, Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield play differently from each other, with different items and equipment available to them, and also have different story elements and character interactions, as Barry Burton is only seen in Jill's story and Rebecca Chambers is only seen in Chris' story. You also see this in Resident Evil 2, where there are four different storylines (Claires A & B, Leons A & B), each one diverging based on who you play as first.
This presents some interesting questions regarding story complexity and replayability. At what point does managing all the branching plotlines, characters, choices, and so on get too complex for someone to understand, and what would this even matter if the game is not engaging or fun enough to warrant multiple playthroughs? Should such plotlines even exist for vidya, or are they just unnecessary wankery?
Am I the only one who's tried playing a Taiko machine barehanded?  I can't find any videos on it, and it seems very possible when I tried it, but it's just tricky hitting the blues correctly.  I end up having to slam the edge of the drum like I'm playing a carillon loudly or having to slap it with the densest part of my palm with a lot more force than for red notes, and it gets exhausting much quicker than for normal play.  Plus I definitely can't play on higher difficulties that way yet.  It's also kinda painful I guess but that's easily endurable.
But yeah, use this thread to discuss arcades in general, I guess.
OpenRC Embraces The CoC

The OpenRC maintainer https://github.com/williamh, together with the user https://github.com/vapier (nicknamed vapier) discuss how to be handle their incoming megaqueer reports with the new pull request which is titled add CoC based on the Contributor Covenant project #453

Thread for real time strategy and tactics games

>Spellforce: Conquest of Eo, Second Front and Ultimate Admiral: Dreadnoughts got released
>The Great War: Western Front coming out in March
>Age of Wonders 4 got announced and is getting a release in May
>Phantom Brigade coming at the end of February
>Company of Heroes 3 getting a release at the end of February too
>Broken Arrow getting a multiplayer beta in spring
>Sins of a Solar Empire 2 updated their technical preview
One of the things I've been doing lately is recording the first 15 minutes of games that I have for the purposes of uploading the videos to various platforms to, at least, show that "this game exists". And also to provide those platforms with content. But I also noticed that it seems to be giving me a good estimate on whether a game would actually be worth playing or just deleting from my hard drive. Granted it's just a "first impression" of a title, however, given how there's literally tens of thousands of games out there, it does help wade through many of the weeds.

So, here is what I'm proposing. To Anons to have their hard drive filled to the max with 'nothing' but games you intended to play but never did, have an enormous backlog that you need to get through, spend just an hour or two playing some of these games for 15 minutes, and report back on the games that you found to be really shitty or games that come across as extremely good and that you want to play through to the end. Just that simple.
imageboards often argue in absolutes and objective terms
>you steal? you're a nigger
>you trick and lie? you're a kike
>you buy thing that can be pirated? you're a cuck
and you often get mocked for doing any of these but is it right at all?
what if I'm stealing from a kike?
what if I'm buying from someone who actually deserves my financial support?
what if I'm tricking a nigger?

I for one steal from big grocery chains and pirate from big companies and certainly don't feel like a nigger because those companies are owned by greedy kikes who promote faggotry, white genocide and such degeneracy, and giving my money to them would literally be against my own interests, in a nutshell, stealing from them not only does it not make you a nigger, but it's the superior moral choice, in contrast, stealing from old pops' local shop run by him and his teenage son is indeed deplorable 

now things don't look so black and white anymore and there's a layer of subjectivity to it, does that make leftists right when they say everything is relative?

>Alright I've got everything set up, now what?

Fucking LEARN, you bitch. Learn the Kana first, then move on to grammar and vocabulary. I don't have all the fucking answers, I'm just the OP. Maybe you can ask for help in this thread, but who knows if you'll find any worthwhile feedback amidst the shitposting. Honestly you should be able to figure most shit out on your own.
Post comfy vidya wallpapers or even your desktop so we can call you a faggot. 
Gondolas are fine too.
For the longest time I had this doom wallpaper and a manowar one. Now I just have this cat streched all over my screen.
I've been permanently banned from countless imageboards, international, single language, tor only etc. Countless of times, with the aid of multiple, free and paid anonymizing services + router resets I've evaded probably hundreds of said bans and I've continued my posting openly boasting and announcing that their actions were useless and only emboldened me and inflated my ego, until the admins and mods' hands were forced and had to resort to blanket ban Tor and any VPN or proxy service, at times even blacklisting any anonymizer from accessing the site entirely, and my public IP range whole.
I've caused numerous word filters and image hash filters to be implemented site wide to try and combat me, I've been accused of being numerous different literally who locals despite not even knowing whom they were and I've entertained both the admins and the people who accused me for the sake of making them run in circles.

That is to say I didn't do it because just for the sake of it.
All I've been doing is fighting against injustice as the vast majority of the bans were for frivolous, vague or downright made up reasons like pointing out moderation flaws, "spam" and other similar things. Of course, if I deem something unjust, I'm simply not just going to take it like a good boy, I just wouldn't. I would not let my voice be silenced. And thus I fought fire with fire. I became what I was being accused and drove them to their own self destruction. I trolled, I derailed, I spammed, I acted like their bogeymen and everything they expected me to until I was forced out of ways to post at all. Many imageboards shot themselves in the foot and forsake the true anonymity of their users just to get rid of me.

On the flip side of the coin, more the once have I had to deal with people like me as both an admin and a moderator. Although their motives might've been different, the method of operation was practically the same as my own. The existence of anonymizing services means it boils down to who chooses to spend more time actively fighting the other, be it by spamming or deleting, until the moderating party gives up and just blacklists said services.

The moral of the story is much like all humans are fallible, all mods and admins are inherently cucked by default whether they like it or not, some can keep up a front for more time than others but in the end no one wants to spend 12 hours a day, 365 days a year in front of a computer actively fighting an autist to delete their shit on sight and not get paid to do so. Everyone has a breaking point and it's just a matter of someone like me racing towards it to reach it to permanently cripple a community by collateral damage.
The moral of the story is hosting and managing an imageboard is a fool's errand, as it's done at a loss of time and money and all you get in return is stress, scorn, ridicule, mockery and constant attacks from the very same users you're offering a free service to.
>what is this
It's the sequel to Secret of Mana that never saw a Western release, but got fan-translated to English during better times and hacked to allow for the 3rd character in the party to be controlled by a player.
>where do I get it
ROM+emulator are here: https://anonfiles.com/PfV8U3M6y7/Trials_of_Mana_Gamenight_zip
>ok so how do I play
Extract the above zip and open the SOM3_3_player.smc ROM with Mednafen, then press ALT+SHIFT+1 and set up your controls.
Once you're done press T to open Mednafen's command line interface and enter
/server ny.yuribacon.comThis should connect you to the netplay serb, once there you can set a nickname with /nick and /take or /drop an available controller slot.
With that done that you should be able to play.
Fullscreen mode can be entered/exited via ALT+Enter.

I'll be on the serb from 20:00-24:00 CET/2PM-6PM EST over the weekend.

>I'm on Linux/a 32-bit version of Windoze, what do?
If on a toaster version of Windows simply grab the appropriate Mednafen-1.31.0-UNSTABLE build from https://mednafen.github.io/, extract it somewhere and move the game ROM+mednafen.cfg to that location or overwrite the existing mednafen installation, though that might break stuff.
If on Linux install mednafen 1.31.0 via your package manager, copy the mednafen.cfg from the Gamenight zip to ~/.mednafen, then run it from the command line like a white man.
Depending on your distro the mednafen packages found in your default repos might be out of date or unavailable, if so you can try finding a third party one that has it there's gorillions of AURs and PPAs for emulators, shouldn't be too hard or grab the source code and compile it yourself.
Not to be confused with rougelike...


>The dragon hits you with 100 unsoakable dragon cock damage!
>you die like a retarded bitch again, shame about the rare loot lol
>try again retard?

Go on anon, regal us of your tales of narrow escapes, clever wins, amazing finds, and ultimate victory's. Or just tell us how you died again for the 20th time because you did something stupid. 
So anon, what have you been Playing? Do you have a favorite? Perhaps that one roguelike you just go back to every single time?

Japanese roguelike without permadeath unless you say so and an overworld. Big sandbox with everything you can do such as farming, crafting, ect. Worth a try due to its unique nature and can be played in many different ways. A lot of humor both intended and unintended. Remember, the little girl is the best starting pet. 

>Cataclysm: Dark Days ahead: 
7 day Post apocalyptic roguelike set in the near future where humanity oopsies an extra-dimensional blob entity into our world that rises the dead after dying creating zombies and worse. Has bioincs, mutations, a robust crafting system, and cars. There is mainline and the Bright Nights fork that looks to rollback some of the more questionable changes, these being somewhat unfun in the name of "realism". Play both and make your own opinion but mine is Bright nights as it has an actual endgame. you win by placing a mininuke or yourself in a mainportal at the bottom of the central lab. Good luck getting there. 

One of the OG's. First released in 1987 its been trucking along ever since. Dive deep to retrieve the amulet of Yendor or die trying, has fun interactions. Be creative. 

>Dungeon Crawl stone soup:
Streamlined, for better or worse. Dive deep to find the Orb of Zot. Once done, you will have to leave with it. I'm sure nothing bad will happen on the trip back up. Has some easy starting classes to cut your teeth on, I enjoyed it but I never really got to far in it. 

>Infra Arcana: AKA I keep screaming but Niggerman doesn't answer. 
Infra Arcana is a Roguelike set in the early 20th century. The goal is to explore the lair of a dreaded cult called The Church of Starry Wisdom. Buried deep beneath their hallowed grounds lies an artefact called The Shining Trapezohedron - a window to all secrets of the universe. Your ultimate goal is to unearth this artefact.
Yes I did copy that from the wiki and I'm  not sorry. Its interesting in that you don't gain exp by killing things, you get it by going down floors and finding Monoliths. Which is good because some enemies can really fuck you up.

>Can I talk about "rogue-lites" like FTL and binding of Issacc?  
Knock yourself out, I have long stopped caring about the actual distinction.  

This is by no means a definitive list and there are tons more to try, including "Mainline" Rougelikes, some fantasy, some realistic, and some stupid. There really is something for everyone, unless you don't like them and are here to call me a faggot. That too is welcome, we tolerate all manner of shit taste here. 
I think I might start on another Elona binge again. I was having some issues getting music working on linux but then I remembered I have an all in one mod with a music replacer. Sure enough, those worked just fine. I'm near the end of the second act on a file that years old at this point. I always come back to elona. I've been dabbling in brightnights again for CDDA and have played Caves of Qud on and off recently too. I kinda find QUD boring after a while, the loot isn't super exciting but playing a psionic character is really fun. So fun that there is an antifun counter built in known as psionic headhunters. But those can be fun too.

Lineage 2 reunion thread

Just trying to track you guys down to see if you're still playing.  I don't see a thread up.  Thought I'd peep in game to see for myself, but they changed the Reborn website, and the wikipage for Hellbound doesn't work for me.  Is Rech still alive IRL?

Tegaki works now, draw some!
mass effect 3s voice acting for edi was objectively inferior to edi in mass effect 2. she's also not very interesting. she's just there to fill the void for the selection of squadmates and to "romance" joker despite there being no chemistry whatsoever. what's worse, you can't even decide to not allow edi to take control of the cerberus's robot. nope, this character being allowed regardless of your stance on ai and the geth
Why do people enjoy Assassin's Creed?

>combat system
There is no way to lock onto an opponent and move relative to them. The only way to make distance is to literally turn around and run away. Not that it matters because pressing the attack button will jump on top of the enemy no matter how far away you are. No dodge, roll or blocking either. In other words distance and positioning are completely irrelevant.

Your options in a fight are, break guard if enemy is guarding, counter if enemy is attacking, attack if enemy is idle. 'This is literally rock paper scissors my dudes.'

An equally vapid experience. In a game with exploration/stealth elements like Tenchu or Tomb Raider, how fast you run, the direction of the jump, grab/nograb, flip/noflip all affects where the character lands. And whether or not you make a jump is based entirely on the player's ability to juggle these variables. In AC you move towards an edge and autopilot carries you to the other side. What the actual fuck is that. Exploration is just triggering mini three second cutscenes of the character jumping around and is impossible to fail. How literally braindead do you have to be to get a sense of accomplishment from this.

So combat is just rock paper scissors with flashy animations and exploration is just a railroad track with flashy animations.

Is Assassin's Creed basically just an interactive novel?

I'm too lazy to explain how the controls work, but a quick look at the control settings should give you a good idea of how to play. Keep in mind that I'm hosting this from a dynamic IP, so if it changes, please let me know. Also map rotation is fucked but I think you can still vote for new maps.

P.S. If you see this thread on 8moe, some fag probably copypasted it. Report the thread and call Mark a faggot in it.

>inb4 RCE exploit ruins everything
>inb4 "WTF THIS ISN'T Sven Co-op/Killing Floor"
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.
The /b/ is filled with cattle and tvch threads and the /v/ barely gets any traffic any more, and what posts it does get are in the general circlejerks. What the fuck happened recently? Where did it go wrong exactly?
