Just finished Sonic Superstar.
All in all, a huge "meh".
I was happy to see what SEGA should have done ages ago, meaning the classic Sonic gameplay in a 3D world.

I played on the Switch and man, graphics are fucking garbage, all textures are washed up and the worlds feel empty and lacking any kind of detail.
People are justifying this shit with the excuse that the Switch is not as powerful as the PS5 or Xbox series X but you don't need that much power to make a good looking 2.5 cartoony game.
Kirby Star Allies looked very good and it was an early Switch title, so no reason for this one to look as shit as it does, that is just the developers being shit at optimizing, lazy, and nothing else.

Gameplay is decent, physics are very similar to MegaDrive Sonic games and Mania.
The bonus stages are way too fucking much, one on every stage like in the MegaDrive games was enough, but here you can play sometimes 3 in the same level and that breaks the game flow too much, and it's not like they are any fun to play.

Speaking of breaking the game flow, the new power-ups were totally unnecessary and require you to select them with the right stick first before pressing the button to activate them and once again, this breaks the pacing of the game way too much.

The level theming is really uninspired, while they are supposedly all "new" zones, they are nothing we haven't already saw thousands of times in Sonic games, with only the 3D pixel world being actually original, that was pretty cool.

How much "power" do you need for a 2.5D platformer? Are people seriously going to argue that you need a fucking NoGames5 just to play a game that's no more complex than SSE in Brawl?

People are justifying developers' laziness with the excuse that some platforms aren't "cutting edge" in terms of power, but other games on the very same platforms proved that you don't need an absurd amount of power to make a good looking game that also runs well.
As you said, we are talking about a 2.5 cartoon platformer, it's not some sort of open world realistic shit.
Hell, LittleBigPlanet on the Vita looked much better than this, speaking of 2.5D platformers.
The issue is that many developer go like: 
>"Oh so our game doesn't run as well in this weaker platform? Alright, let's decrease the resolution, the polygon count, the textures resolution, remove the shadows, the particle effects, the dynamic lights until it runs somehow smoothly"
But then do NOTHING to make up for those elements that were cut.
Like, you need to decrease the polygon count?
Redraw the textures in a way that the models look just as detailed.
Dynamic lights and shadows take too many resources?
Draw the lights directly into the textures (like Team Ninja does) and use some shadows that aren't as demanding.
Dynamic elements like hair, capes, flags, slow down the game?
Animate those manually.
Don't just downgrade, remove shit, and call it a day.

Fine. Here I go.

What's your preferred way to play vidya? I'm talking about the best way to be comfortable and have a great time.
For example. I like to play certain games like Ridge Racer 4 in total darkness. Having the tv being the only light in the room, playing in my comfy chair with a hot drink and my window open to simulate the wind. It's such a beautiful game  and playing in other way seems wrong to me. I'm even thinking about getting a wheel to play it that way.
On the other hand, right now I've been playing Warhammer 40K: Space Marine. Obviously the previously mentioned setup wouldn't make sense. What I do is get myself pumped with some Power Metal (Sabaton, Powerwolf, etc.) alongside a carbonated cold drink. I do that with a bunch of aggressive games of which I don't like the OST. I wouldn't do it with MGR:R for example.
Some games, especially games that don't require moment to moment action, I like having a snack for. Strategy games, JRPGS. I like having chips or granola or something like that.
Moving away from food. Do you do most of your gaming on your PC chair or do you sometimes use a couch? Sitting back and getting sucked into a couch is quite comfy.
I use my PS3 and PS2 for my couch playing and is really, really comfy.
Or you can use your bed. I mostly use handhelds for that though. I play games on my vita while laying down. Is kind of the reason I've been considering a Steam Deck. I like the pick and play nature of it and would like to play relaxed in my bed. Right now I'm waiting for an OLED revision though. The other day I saw a mod someone is working on to put a 1200p screen on the thing and it looks pretty nice. I would play a lot of Yakuza on it. Maybe some Elden Ring.
Speaking, of Elden Ring, what do you think Fromsoft will do next? I mean, they are working on Armored Core 6. I wonder how that'll come out. I'm not that big on AC although I really enjoyed playing AC4 and 4 Answer. I wonder if they will incorporate some souls mechanics.
I'm getting side tracked, of yeah! Do you use aromatic candles when gaming? I think it adds to some games. Specially those with a cozy, warm atmosphere.
I like sniffing on some girl's perfume while playing the Senran Kagura game. I've been playing some Peach Beach Splash and I like to have a Pina Colada at hand alongside some sunscreen to rub under my nose. it gives me the illusion that I'm there. I would like to buy a busty anime doll to sit it on my lap while playing but they are too expensive.
I hope sex robots are around the corner. I mean, I know they are at risk of getting banned by the jews but I don't see development stopping. I watch those Redmoa Haydee videos and imagine how awesome would be to her sitting on my face. Imagine 2B blowing you while playing vidya. Even if robots don't come through then maybe VR can be a good alternative and that's something that I highly doubt will get banned. Apple just released a new pair of headsets which I bet is mostly for devs to start working on sweet stuff and once that technology gets perfected, porn artist and modelers will work their magic.

I am similar but only when i play Horror games, playing them in the living room in plain daylight just feels wrong to me.
When i play horror vidya (or watch horror movies for that matter) the screen must be the only source of light as you said, also, playing during night is better because you don't hear external noise you would in daylight and the sound of the game gets amplified.

I think space station 13 is one of the best games in existence. The best open source codebase is probably /vg/station, but they have been gradually taken over by discord trannies.
So I decided to fork it to a new fork called fstation, with the emphasis on being fresh and fun:
https://gitgud.io/Hinaichigo/fstation13

And to that effect, I'm hosting a new server for imageboard users!:

The tranny whose OC is in the image (and is the one who made the Bloodborne "demake") isn't the one who was originally in it. The original was a Sonic image edited with that line.

I lost my mind when that bloodborne demake came out and everyone was slobbering the dev's nuts over it. Dude literally didn't have to do the hard part of game design (designing fun gameplay loops) and just had to do the execution part and people acted like he was some incredible visionary because he reminded them of their nostalgia for the ps1 era.

Yes, that's what it looks like when marketing is successful. Nobody cares about the process, only the end result.
You should take it as a sign of hope that some retard tranny can be so successful by copying something so blatantly. If he can do it, imagine what you could do.

Only really starts being an issue after 2hr+ of straight play, basically takes the form of a small stutter every second, that gets really bad over time if you leave it like that.

>>233476
Nah the limiter drift is literally unavoidable, you can mitigate the visible effects with VRR or some other stuff like fast sync / forcefully vsyncing at a lower refresh rate like 57-59 but no matter what hardware you have you ain't changing that.

I agree with this sentiment.

The voices of these 3DPD "females" are laced with poison, leading us astray from the true path. The only female voices that our ears should be graced with are those of pure digital creatures, angelic beings whose synthesized voices are blessed by the Omnisiah himself. You know it to be true, do not be led astray by these foul creatures of flesh when they sing their lies into your ears.

But AI voices are trained on 3DPD voices? Hatsune Miku's voice is Saki Fujita. No idea who Neurosama's voicegen was trained on.
Literally every anime girl you've ever heard was voiced by 3DPD. Even for manga, any voice you imagine is generated by your brain based on memories of 3DPD. The only way to avoid that would be to be born deaf.

++What's this all about?++
Detective Conan is a game where one of us declares himself the Conan and takes a ragtag team of six goblins assembled by anons into an online competitive murder mystery 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 Conan calls "new Conan", the first anon to claim the title is our Conan. He uses the first six legal Pokémon suggested after his claim as his team. Conan can also call "new team" when the old one became stale (rule of thumb: 40-60 minutes). Conan plays in ++National Dex++ unless specified otherwise.
Absolutely no experience is necessary and everything is done in-browser.

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

>Sony shows first look at Gravity Rush movie
https://archive.is/wobsu
https://yewtu.be/watch?v=VHFlBQVZ7HA

The TL;DR of it is that Sony is developing a new type of technology, along with Epic Games, that will be used for the purposes of what is essentially "virtual filmmaking". They're advertising it's use primarily with movies and television, showcasing some test footage from the upcoming Gravity Rush movie, but the technology looks also to be used for the purposes of game development, as evidenced by the footage from the yet-to-be-announced upcoming Patapon game.

Rekieta interviewed a guy who did mid level work on it once. According to him it was as bad as it was because some executive saw another movie based on Journey to the West was coming out, didn't realize it's a really old public domain work, and thus ordered emergency rewrites... right in time for a writer's strike. Said executive's response was to do the rewrites himself.

To remind you.

As for streaming, once again there have been rumblings but nothing is concrete. I understand the fatigue more than anyone, so it's entirely understandable for there to be a break this year and am perfectly fine with just a celebratory thread. But, if you are mad enough to stream, you will have access to the cytube room I set up if you so wish to use it. It has emotes, CSS, and (probably) moderators. I'll also see if I have any of my OBS scenes backed up so I can share those.

In other news, Sullen Boku Girls Alliance, a spinoff game written by the original author and featuring our darling protagonist, is still not out yet even though it supposedly entered the final stage of development at the end of 2022. The demo, in any case, may be interesting to play to see how much FP has grown as writer and artist since her 2015 debut.
