imagine you're working on this game, let's call it Fortnite
100 players drop into the map and kill each other and the last one alive wins
for some reason, the game crashes and bugs 10x more than smaller scale FPS that have games, despite requiring _less_ bugs. you will die often from the bugs
for some equally strange reason, games take 2-3 minutes to start, so when you wanna just grind early game fights to get good, you end up wasting a lot of time
now one day, you decide to fix the loading time: why not just never load anything, since its always the same map? just reset all objects to default positions and states
you create a system tracking each objects initial state so that you can call .Reset() on every single one when needed
then the manager steps in and sees you testing it out, as all the objects snap back to their initial positions and buildings get undestroyed, etc
>WOW anon, cool change you made!
>now, can you make it tween and add a woosh sound?
now the game wooshes after each round. like it wasnt gay enough already being a simulator in a simulator
and of course it crashes sometimes during the woosh or the objects collide with each other back on the way to their initial positions and some amazingly predictable bugs occur (im not even making this shit up. fortnite had a bug where you placed a marker and it blocked people from moving past it)
now imagine 10000 soydevs do this every day. they just implement some trivial change and get proud of themselves like "yuup, i accomplished something big this year"
this is whats happening
how do we stop this retarded nigger shit?
games are just made of pure retarded nigger shit now

>if hortler wasn't rarted and had listened to his generals
The mistaken decisions (such as the one to hold Stalingrad and resupply it by air) were put into effect because Hitler was fed bullshit by his staff, leading him to think it is feasible.

>same with the me262
Same as above, it wasn't Hitler's fault; the information he was given (by Messerschmitt himself) were divorced from reality and the development went completely sideways than intended; instead of jet interceptor it was supposed to be a ground attack/CAS plane meant to disturb the allied beach landings.

Since they went 3D with kirby it would be cool to see them try again with DK.
It would be also nice if they added badass looking enemies like in Jungle Beat.

Nintendo were retards about not purchasing Rare when they had the chance.
We could have had a proper Killer Instinct 3.
Also franchises like Conker, Banjo-Kazooie, Perfect Dark, KI would be still good, and would give Nintendo more IPs since they are stagnating on this regard (Splatoon apart)
I am asking you to share some sweet screens anon.

My peertube channel doesn't store any streams due to storage limitations on the instance I'm using, but I have the video files on my computer so if you want them just ask. I stream as wewuzstreamerznsheeit on cytube.
It's very unlikely that I'll upload everything, so it's best to specify which streams you're looking for.

Seconding VidLii for the nostalgia factor, although the video quality is reduced if you don't pay for premium. I think any PeerTube instance with relaxed storage limits will work best for storing VODs.

I suggest taking the idea of field effects from reborn. I would also suggest having at least 2-3 ways to change a field to a different one.
you have no idea what you're about
the hottest women of europe are in north macedonia
I know some people scorn self-imposed bullshit but I got some decent challenge using monotype teams in my last few pokemon games.I actually had to give up on platinum with my all grass team because of the E4, between the bug guy, Flint and fucking Cynthia I would've had to grind up my leafy bois by like 10 lvls each.
I’m going to summarize my ideas I’ve shared, haven’t chared, and ones I think that are good from the thread so I have a clearer picture.

Game is set in fictionalized Pokemon-equivalent of ancient Greece during one of their many conflicts. Locations represented in the game include Athens, Sparta, Troy, Lesbos, Cyprus, Delphi, Marathon, Mt Etna, and Mt Olympus. Both historical and mythological figures will inspire the various trainers and gym leaders.

Very similar to base Pokemon. Few if any Fakemons, not including regional variants like a Water-type Ponyta or Steel-type Hoothoot. Progression is still based around gym (or gymnasium since it’s Greece) battles, but the world design is far more open with most towns being easily connected from the get-go by clear roads with more direct routes and and shortcuts being connected through typical tall grass and caves with higher-level Pokemon. Double battles are standard among trainers, and bandits that can steal your money, items, or even mons freely.

pokemon is peak middle school vibes
it has to have immersive and environments like pic related
you dont understand the feeling
of being under these few hundred trees
while coming of age
its not just a new and secret world
it has to have a sexy redhead like misty
who you have your first boner to
this is what made og pokemon amazing
its inextricably intertwined with sexuality, you cant get rid of that part without killing it
this is the reason kids would knife each other at school over trading cards
this idea of exploring an unknown world with a mixture of hi tech and nature as freshly weened middle schoolers was what made it cool for me, while being the same age when it came out

Are you guys playing it?

Did you see the newest update?

I swear they are not even trying to save the game.
I wanted to see Pauline, but i hate how they feel the need to make her sing every fucking time she opens her mouth, especially in this game i expected her to drop that shit.
Her hyper strike is garbage, lazy and unimaginative, definitely the worst one in the whole fucking game, she just throws the ball in the air and hits it with a microphone, no energy or creativity whatsoever.
I also dislike her animations, bland and underwhelming, on par with Rosalina's
Diddy is okay i guess, i like his hyper strike, but his animations feel rushed and too short, like they were supposed to be 2/3 seconds longer and got cut, kinda weird.
The barrel armor looks like shit, worst one in the game hands down, if they wanted something DK related, they could have done a primitive-looking wood armor tied together with vines, that would have been way cooler than a having a different sized barrel in every limb.
I like the new stadium, it's nothing exceptional, but at least is the first one that doesn't look like a fucking reskin, and make me wish devs would go back and change the desert stadium as well to make it more different.
Do you think next update will actually be the last one?
Or do you think we'll get more in 2023?
If the next update is actually going to be the last one, and we won't get anything else apart from 2 more characters, 1 stadium and a new gear set, then this game is as good as dead, they didn't even try to save it.

>>164613 (OP) 
I have only played it around with Yuzu and at some friend's house because I wanted to get a feel for the game before deciding if it was worth my time, and it really was not. I have already made my twenty pointer on why this game is horrible, but the tl;dr is that no one gave a shit about the game being MARIO SOCCER, they cared about it being a high octane super fast and really expressive piece of competitive sportsball.
I mean, you take randos playing Strikers Charged, heck sometimes even just base Strikers, and you compare it to people playing Battle League at its most competitive level. The former has so much more style and you can really express yourself through the gameplay mechanics. The latter is only moderately better than Mario Sports Mix. Having to time passes on laggy online is the fucking worst. Having to use your own team mates as range extenders for players with bad tackling speed is even worse. The only thing that's making me happy is seeing how most videos about the game don't even reach 1k viewers and the League has barely anyone playing it.
>What would you like to see fixed or changed?
Honestly, I hope another game that is inspired by the other two strikers would come along and replace this.
The other two Strikers didn't have many animations either, but they

3 MONTHS of wait, for just 2 characters and still no offline season mode, no story mode, no new customization, no new scoring animations, no new field type nor hazards, no alternate game modes, and the custumizable stadiums are still locked behind that shitty online mode.

What's this all about?
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.

1. Champ can't forfeit, intentionally throw a match, or timer stall.
2. Champ may not edit a set without the suggester's permission.

As it is now the middle of August, I think it's safe to say that there will not be an anniversary stream unless someone surprises us. Even so, that isn't a reason to not celebrate and denigrate what I consider to be a treasure of the now-gone Tumblr era of Internet as well as catch up on the latest progress of the projects being worked on by anons.

I don't quite like Chess.

In more modern times, chess has a strong memorization element to it. 
Chess Grandmasters are expected to memorize so much opening theory, they pretty much have seen all opening moves and know how good they are statistically, and they also memorize much that can happen after that. Some books with chess theory are so long, they can last more than 20 moves just analyzing what will be done.
Some older Grandmasters have abandoned modern chess because it has become a completely different game, as they mostly fought with creativity and there weren't such long winded analysis of opening moves. This is also why Chess960 is somewhat popular, since its imposible to memorize opening theory when there are 960 opening positions. 

Think about it, isn't that like speedrunning?
>Makes memorization as important skill, minimizing or replacing whatever else they were supposed to do
>Memorize the same moves so you can do them again and again, but honestly it seems worse than chess because it seems even less dynamic than before

>>156795 (OP) 
I think it's got a different approach to it though. Chess is a really individualistic sport whereas speedrunning is usually  a cooperative effort for all members of a community. Yes, there is competition among the top performers, but generally speaking 90% of speedrunning is routing, theorizing, discussions and strokes of luck. Most speedrunners have a cordial attitude towards each other and frequently watch and cheer on fellow speedrunners. Compare it to Chess, with all its unsportsmanlike attitudes and cheating. Yes, speedrunners cheat too, sometimes for prize money as well, but generally they fall under much bigger scrutiny exactly because the people who are interested in the game they're speedrunning care more about the technique than the actual results.

>>156795 (OP) 
not really. both have memorization but there's other aspects of both to consider. speedrunning requires dexterity and emphasizes peak performance over consistency. depending on the game it can also be more or less memorization focused depending on how much rng has to be played around. chess also inevitably has variance due to playing against a human opponent. while the set of optimal moves might be narrow enough to anticipate and recognize some probable game states, it's not like you can just memorize your way through an entire game. you'll have to apply your knowledge in an unanticipated way at some point

I learned about this game quite by accident the other day and I wanted to bring it to the attention of other anons.  I could have posted this in the Indiepshit thread but I think the game looks promising enough to have its own thread.

>So what is it?
From the Kickstarter page: "The Big Catch is a 3D platformer all about tight expressive player movement, exploration, and FISH.  You play as the acrobatic fisherman, Caster! Tasked by his boss Chef Leurre with saving the titular restaurant, The Big Catch, Caster ventures in search of ingredients to spice up the menu and bring in new customers."

The phrase "tight expressive player movement" would normally make my skin crawl because it sounds like a bunch of buzzwords put together by Smash Bros players, but once I actually saw gameplay I thought it looked very promising.  You can tell by the way the character moves that the developers actually care about making the kinesthetics satisfying and fluid.  I genuinely can't recall the last time I played a game that didn't have some kind of catch or hitch or clunkiness in the way characters moved around so I'm cautiously optimistic.

The devs said they were inspired by 5th gen platformers, which unfortunately means they're taking otherwise fine 3D graphics and plastering scanline and dithering filters over it.  Luckily, there will be options to remove and configure the graphical effects to get t

>Animal anthro have always been a thing in vidya and not because furries
That doesn't make them - not furry? What the fuck does this have to do with anything? There isn't even such a thing as a furry it's a preinternet culture from a time where pseudonymous (gay) sex required setup rather than being the defacto state of being for any faggot with a willing hole.
The MC's design (facewise) is bad. It's not bad because it's furry, though it being furry probably had a hand in the process since it's not stylized. Look at #5 on >>179052 for something that's actually got a pronounced style. The fucking funded art in OP reveals it right away; it's like the MC has some cursed fucking bad-anime-no-nose effect going on where a snout should be, compared to the chef and the rival who actually have their snout/beak drawn as an object with depth rather than some sort of sidemouth abomination.
Furries draw beaks as a separate object with it's own texture anyway. That'd look fucking bad as it always does, but especially so here with how low fidelity the designs are.

Well shit, and here I was already scramblin' to fire up gimp™ and those sumbitches make me look stupid.
