>RTS Games
Memorize build order, out-gookclick the oponent, best case scenario you get a map editor and a campaign, most of the latter RTS games released don´t have map editor at all, and no campaign either or its a tutorial meant to get you to play multiplayer instead
>4X Games
same shit, but its turnbased, if you attempt to take things at your own pace or just try to do your own thing (AKA:Not using the forum meta strategy) the AI that has perfect knowledge of the game will steamroll you, this is the case in MOO, Distant Worlds, Space Empires, you name it, the only exception i´ve seen to this is Civ V, and i´d wager its because in that game you can´t deathstack and the AI is "bad" according to people
>Grand Strategy games (or actually just paradox games because the only two other Grand Strategy games aside from them are Knights of Honor and Making History, with post-Shogun2 Creative Assembly being its homosexual twin)
mostly overlap with 4x, but they are over-complicated on top of that, an example of this is how Hoi3 had the OOB system that ended up being a hassle to learn, and then once you learnt it you realized that just leaving it on AI control is the most optimal unless you are doing barbarossa or island hopping, wich is the worst of both worlds, having to learn a lot about one thing to not use it at all, its asinine design, also how you have laws and policies on

What happened to all of the rhythm games that were present during the Aughts? It seemed like we had everything from Guitar Hero and DDR and Rhythm Heaven to now where the only thing still coming out is just...Just Dance, I think? Where did everything go?

Imageboards are also a pleasure.
It probably has something to do with dance/techno music scenes being associated with GRIDS going back to the disco days mixed with speedrunner autism. DDR and that narrow slice of dance and eurobeat from the 90s just lucked into mass appeal.

>Rhythm games are full of mentally ill people for some reason
This is an important thing to note. Rhythmic elements in platformers, action games, and other genres are good, but a "rhythm game" is often a pure exercise is memorization that is totally abstract from any kind of intermediary gameplay or physical fun like handling an instrument/playing DDR on a cabinet. Thus, they attract people who are incredibly obsessive and autistic since playing one is like mainlining heroin.

It's possible for there to be relatively well-adjusted people in speedrunning communities for both new and retro games, but I have never seen someone who played a lot of rhythm games who wasn't either a tranny or some kind of self-hating weirdo. The "best" option here is to become a Japanese dude playing the same songs on the same game for hours a day in the same arcade.
Trannies have no life and want people to pay attention to them and praise them. They're naturally going to be attracted to games that demand a lot of your attention and reward you with accolades. It's just a fact of the matter.

Why are you defending that trash?

>game has strong aim assist such as COD APEX and HALO
-Use controller
>game has limited to no aim assist or has movement intensive mechanics such as FORTNITE CSGO VALORANT ARENA GAMES IN GENERAL
-Use KBM 

That simple.

Whether the game is shit, has niggers or spics in its cast, or completely manipulates the retards playing them is a different topic

But you have to understand, "anon" (blacked) simply must signal how based and trad he is in every single thread. Otherwise people might think he's some kind of loser.

To actually reply to the topic at hand, how do you fit KB/M-over-controller boxes like the Brook Sniper into this? I've never used one but supposedly you can take fat steaming shits on people in aimbot-based games like Halo because you can acquire targets so much faster than controllerfags who have to rely on the aim assist to do most of the work.

a game that  has strong aim assist and is pvp focused  is  shit regardless of what you say
Replies: >>240538
The concept of using kbm on consoles is neat but honesty, using these devices to obtain kbm aim assist on consoles is a shitskin tier tactic. Cronus was recently banned on consoles since you can also manipulate control inputs/add macros. Spics and chinks must always ruin everything for others. How much fun can you really have doing that? 

Not wrong. These games tend to attract cheaters as well which is shocking that these  idiots continue to play these games. Can’t imagine spending money and allowing ok with incompetent devs shit on you willingly

There have been a lot of "mascot platformers" in recent years - that is, 3D platformers reminiscent of the 5th and 6th console generations. Many of them are just the usual indie games circling the drain and not doing anything new, but there are occasional beams of light that pierce through the veil. Penny's Big Breakaway is one such game.

It launched last month on PC and Switch (and I guess PS or something?). I decided to buy it since it seemed to be promising and the developers were the team behind Sonic Mania, which I had heard good things about. Overall, it's very good aside from the bugs. Lots of fun, versatile movement tricks you can use and the stages strike a nice balance between encouraging you to explore and rewarding you for going fast. The price is a bit steep for an indie game at $30 USD, but given the studio's pedigree and the promise this game shows, I am willing to support it.

Mechanically, you have the standard 3D platformer stuff like jumping, double jumping, airdashing, and sliding around. PBB's unique gimmick is that you use a yo-yo in conjunction with Penny, so your air motions are a series of yo-yo tricks like swinging from it, throwing it out and zipping towards it, and hooking over ledges with it. It sounds like a pretty standard twist on 3D movement, but depending on how you combine the actions and how fast you're moving, you can generate incredible amounts of speed. Gaining momentum and maintaining it is important to moving fast, and you need to

A few months ago, I played through and finished the game Epic Mickey on the Wii. This had nothing to do with the recently announced remaster of the game in case you're asking. I wasn't too impressed with the game (Simplistic gameplay, lacking story, gimmicks done better elsewhere), but the part that really drew my attention was how the game portrayed characters like Mickey Mouse, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, and Walt Disney (Though only referentially). I found myself perplexed by the game's intention, and it resulted in my spending the time since starting and long after having finished the game wanting to make a video essay ridiculing the game's narrative and the history behind it. The short is that, from all the information that I have dug up, the Oswald acquisition in 2006 was nothing more than Bob Iger trying to get on the good side of all the Disney shareholders and leaders in the company to sharply contrast him to Michael Eisner, who was leaving the company shamed and humiliated at the time.

However, tonight, I get the impression that doing such a video does absolutely nothing except inflate my own ego by piling another bundle of criticism onto a guy who everyone in the media already hates (And with good reason, mind you). In addition to that, I just realized that my own researching the history of these characters ac

>That sounds like "they are a private company they can do whatever they want, just make your own x instead of complaining"
Anon, that actually is a valid argument when there are dozens of alternatives in a field. Not even that you have to "Make your own", just start using another service. However that then becomes the problem that people would rather bitch and moan about getting fucked six ways to Sunday rather than fix the problem.

'For example, let's look at Jewtube.' There are dozens of alternatives to it (BitChute, DailyMotion, NicoNico,Odysee,Rumble,Veoh,Vidlii,etc.), some better than others. So why don't people use them? 'Or how about Twatter?' There are numerous alternatives that you can search up by going to The Federation: https://the-federation.info/
Or how about Discord? Or how about Steam? Or how about...you get the point.

After a while, the problem very quickly becomes that people would rather be lazy rather than fix the issue.

No, you can't stop 1000 plebs from buying the latest CoD.

 -Talk about better games.
 -Make your own mods for better games.
 -Make your own better games.

I can go back to Mario 64 any day ~~but then again I consider the gta games bad and the only reason people enjoy them is the sandbox which multiple other open world games did the same thing better 
and if you wanted a more mission based gta there was always the simpsons hit and run~~

Congrats! You just won a zillion dollars!
In your infinite wisdom, you use this never-ending budget to make the gaming room of your dreams.
How do you go about it?
Me personally I would try to recreate as faithfully as possible a gaming basement you would find in the early 2000s. 
6th gen consoles attached to a big-ass CRT. I'd get some of my favorite arcade cabinets like Time Crisis, Galaga, Guitar Hero III and maybe even a japanese import like Taiko no Tatsujin. On the corner I would have a mini LAN party section with multiple WinXP-Win98 PC rigs. I'd have a pool table and a display fridge with fizzy drinks and a giant poster on the wall with all of the Dead or Alive girls on it.
And for post-7th gen games? I'd have a small movie room with a projector to play any modern 16:9 releases.
You all would be invited of course!
None of that gay LED RGB shit with a wall full of consoles I'll never use or "retro art" posters. That kind of shit infuriates me.

This is a thread for TACTICAL AND MILSIM GAMES; ArmA, RoN, Hideous Destructor, Ground Branch, Squad, SWAT 4, Project Reality, etcetera. If people move at realistic speeds by default, die fast, and the gunplay is realistic, it probably belongs here.
Most milsim/tactical communities are infested with redditors, halfchanner retards, powertripping niggerfaggots, or all three. A group can be assembled to play ops with people who aren't, and therefore have a experience that is orders of magnitude more FUN.
ArmA III is not compatible with Linux out of the box, but can be made compatible through a not-particularly-arduous process; first, try -nolauncher and Proton Experimental, and if that fails, muck around with wrappers and graphics bullshit until things work; will reply with further information once it arrives. If you want to >pay, you're probably going to need Apex, Tanks, and Marksmen for a full ground-side experience, although in effect you're just paying money for adblock.

Hideous Destructor requires a lot of minor changes to become playable and remove all the poz. However, luckily, a .zip file is attached with a multiplayer-compatible base modlist (shamelessly stolen from a friend) that will work out of the box if you arrange it according to the numbers:
Remove "hdest-uniquesounds.pk3" and "insurgencysfx.pk3" for the vanilla-Doom sound experience. Remove the skins file if you're not interested in looking like a Kasrkin. hd-negatory does all the poz removal and tweaking.

Try the following commandline parameters for the host as a base: -host [N] -netmode 0 +teamdamage 0.25 +hd_pof 1 +dmflags 2097152 +dmflags2 268435456 +map RANGE, where [N] is the number of players. The teamdamage parameter is mostly just to prevent bad nades from causing total teamwipes; use changemap commands to switch to the desired map when all players are ready.

RoN is still a fucking mess due to particularly overtuned AI.

Its not stealing. I duplicated it. Im not selling the duplicate. 
Violating copyright isnt actually theft, courts treat it that way because companies claim losses, even though thats false logic and implies a free game would sell the same. As if downloads are all lost sales. 
Copying books at the library, recording music you hear or off the radio or at a concert, and recording a live play or tv show with my vcr isnt theft either. Taking a photo of a painting. The fact that we got better at it doesn’t change this. Nor does the fact that we got so good at copying that our copies are better than the original. Regardless of what copyright lawyers want.

Thread to discuss the most recent happenings related to the SBI fiasco which is currently developing.
A quick rundown for the clueless:
>Sweet Baby Inc. is an outsourcing narrative development studio founded in 2018 by former Ubisoft employees which "consults" on video game narratives during development to "promote" safer working environments and diverse representation within game narratives and studios
>or that's what the watered down kikepedia entry claims
>in reality it's been known for a while that they don't just "consult and promote" but rather demand that devs and studios preach their agenda
>they're among the reasons why more recent video games have body type A and B and all sorts of gay, tranny and woke propaganda
>for years they operated mostly under the radar without anyone knowing about them until just a few months ago anons took notice of them
>all until they held an interview at a press conference where Kim Belair, one of the founders, straight up boasted on record that their MO consists of literal threats and "terrifying" devs to accept the poz
>the lid blew open and normalfags too learned about their existence and practices
>the following backlash translated into a steam group, called Sweet Baby Inc detected, made a month by some BR madmen which aimed to track and warn about games which SBI pozzed, gaining massive exposure
>in perfect kike fashion, SBI attempted to attack and censor said group by reporting them, spamming them and whining about them on Twitter demanding to have them banned
>all of which, EXACTLY like GG many years ago, only resulted in the whole matter reaching even a wider audience getting Streisand effect out the ass and more people jumping on the bandwagon as news outlets pick the story up and various ecelebs throw their takes in
>the steam group grew overnight from 70k  to 210k+ followers but apparently steam support threatened to delete it due to the report spam SBI drones had done
>the owner then wiped ALL discussion and threads except admin messages to avoid deletion
>allegedly even cuckchan is banning and deleting discussion about it on /v/ and trying to move it to /pol/, again, exactly like GG years ago

The guy in the video doing the analysis said that she said that she admitted liking white characters like Kratos and especially Nathan Draken referring to them as "boyfriends" that's why he came to that conclusion i guess.
To me she's only petty because when she went to school she realized that white people were the best at building a civilization, science, art, literature and basically everything else, while niggers have always been parasites and nothing else, and this fact made her butthurt.
So she wanted to push niggers everywhere thinking that this would give her kind some form of acknowledgement too.
Pretty sad and pathetic if you ask me.
Who is going to make the new thread?
Stop whining, you little bitch.
>Reminder that this sham of a movement is literally just free advertisement for anything SBI has worked on.

Not really. Extortion and other corporate skulduggery doesn't make for a good sales. Moreso for even more shitty games.

>Also the vast, vast majority of people born after 1995 are extremely left-leaning and pro-authoritarian (the remainder of them are centrists at best)

And now they're too stupid to breed.

>so the niGGerfaGGots have already made billions of enemies right off the bat.

When your owners scream for mass censorship in response to merely discussing their behavior, that does not show power; it shows fear. And I enjoy watching their kind scream as their world collapses.
