nah that's a jew.
classic jew behavior
shitty take. it is typical for jews to draw swastikas and then cry wolf to the authorities. similarly it is totally within the jewish wheelhouse to act as this kid did and then get caught. they can't resist themselves. jews aren't usually pushing the "based jews" angle. they push the "based blacks" angle, but when it comes to antisemitism, they sometimes try to incite whites in order to justify more oppressive measures and attacks on free speech.
People are fucking retarded

i think ZUN just doesn't care that much since touhou would never have taken off like it did without all the fan artists and their varying interpretations of the source material.

What's the oldest person you know that actually plays videogames? I've not known anyone who plays videogames past 50, so it's always a joy to see folk in their later years still engaging with vidya games. 

Back during 8kunts days, I was hoping the Q boomers would come and talk about vidya with us, which would be pretty cool to increase the variety of people discussing videogames, guess it was never really meant to be.

My dad used to play racing games on the PS1 with me. But one day my mom just shows up pissed off out of nowhere and starts shouting "a grown ass man playing stupid video games, my god!!!" 
He soon stopped playing games with me ever since that day

This is true. I know two genX guys at work that game more regularly than I do. One of them is older genX as well.

Spec Ops The Line is such a pretentious piece of shit. 
>you played the game therefore you are a bad person and you should feel guilty
Nevermind that you have no actual choice in the game. These motherfuckers even confirmed it.
>just stop playing otherwise you are a bad person
but its a fucking video game. Why would i stop playing it??
Then you have all the retards on the internet praising it for its "deep story" and whatnot. Cant stand those faggots.

He has remained surprisingly consistent over the years. Still difficult to please, still makes penis jokes. He does make political comments every once in a while, and they are about as insufferable as you would expect coming out of a smug online personality's mouth.
His style is about the same but he actually talks about gameplay mechanics and the experience of playing games now.  I find his videos entertaining enough to keep up with; his recent video about The Mortuary Assistant is probably the biggest example of his new style since he spends almost the entire time talking about gameplay.

The problem isn't that the game "makes you the vilain", the problem is that we literally don't commit any crimes whatsoever and yet the game still tries to portray you as evil. 
First of all WHO cares about a bunch of sandnigger civilians and second WHY is it my fault that the braindead CIAniggers opened fire on our squad, forcing us to shoot back? 

Of course you're never even given the chance to NOT shoot the cianiggers or sandniggers either. Either shoot or you can't progress the game. 

And finally, there's one issue with the game that is inexcusable: Pic related.

There's a lot of videogames out there. That also means that there's a lot of shit games out there too. I don't have time to analyze each game for 10 minutes just to see if it's even worth a play. Luckily, a lot of shit games have the same red flags that immediately give away the fact that they are shit. What are some common red flags that you see when looking for vidya? These flags aren't always 100% true, but it's good to recognize these patterns so that way you don't waste your time. Here's some easy red flags that I often use/look out for:
>Pre-order bonuses
This tells me that the devs aren't confident in their game so they have to throw in a little treat to have people purchase it.
>Indie Multiplayer games
They have a "big" bang upon release and then die in a few months. It'll be impossible to play afterwards unless you have friends or are willing to go into a gay little dicksore channel.
>Game tries to sell itself as the spiritual successor of a loved game (see Back 4 Blood) or "THE DARK SOULS OF [GENRE]"
Games that do this usually do it because they want to parrot a game without understanding what made the game so great in the first place.

>action in games is a red flag
Why? What string of games did you play that made you come to the conclusion that action in games is something to be cautious about?
Replies: >>178354
When I see "action" as a tag or descriptor, I think of all the godawful attempts at real-time action combat systems, hence the wariness.

yeah playing some older titles and PSP stuff was part of my interest too. Like I love playing Dissidia but I can only emulate it on PC right now, I think it'd be great to play on the actual thing

Somewhere near the woods lies a gas station, neatly placed seemingly in the middle of nowhere; however, it is far from desolate. For there anons from all around gather inside a room. A room filled to the top with arcade machines. There, anons enjoy the evening drinking, calling each other faggot and just having a good old time.
>What is this?
Anons vote for some games and play them until they beat them or lose. Arcade games that don't take long to complete and reward skill. Once finished they post their score and see who did the best. They give others advice, share what they think of the game, call each other casuals, say which character they would fuck and more.
>How much time do I have to play?
One month or until winners are announced. New threads are posted at around 00:00 UTC-8 on the first Saturday of the month. You play until whenever. I make a new thread whenever I feel like it.
>Where do I get them?

He said he was hosting and provided all the info needed to connect though.
Started hosting again, same setup as before. I set it to allow four connections, so two people can play while two more spectate and take over if someone quits. By the way, I set the core overclock to 250%, so the slowdown is entirely removed; tell me if your computer can't handle it and I'll dial it back down.

So what are you hosting?

With the Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together remake on the horizon I thought it was a perfect time to talk about tactics game. 
I had an xcom itch but decided to instead do XPiratez again, a mod of xcom that takes place like 200-400 years after the OG xcom lost and the stargods rule the world. You are amazon mutants who decide to become pirates and you can get catgirls. What more do you want? Its a huge mod that adds new missions, ships, guns, melee weapons, units, an absolute ton of stuff. 
It can be balls to the walls hard but the gals are way tougher than a starting rookie you get in xcom so play smart and they will treat you well. I'm currently in my 5th month and I think I'm about to lose again so we'll see how that goes. 

Tactics Ogre Reborn is going to come out in a week or so being based on the psp version with further improvements like changing your class and preserving your level. There is voice acting but hopefully you can turn it off.  I'm wondering if square is seeing if this is worth reviving the series for, I would like to see something besides final fantasy constantly myself.

So anon, what have you been playing?

>with further improvements like
removing the Rogue class
Funny you say that. Thats exactly who they are based on hence the look. There are other looks too that you can select. I think they have some intel with the sisters as the background
It can be a bit of an undertaking but its pretty fun. You aren't guaranteed a catgirl out the gate though
Thinking bout that tactics ogre
Is the new tactics ogre any good? Or like remade, I guess its not really new.

Do you think he was in the wrong? I remember ten years ago it was more of a 50/50 split but now every single yewtuber calls him shit like "ableist", it's interesting because this discussion mostly happens in the west, most japs agree with him and you even have games with a similar message like Caligula Effect.

Underrated search engine.
Superstar Saga suffers from too many actions mapped to too few buttons. It's also never made clear (I think) that Advanced moves require additional inputs in battle, my first playthrough I didn't even use them, I just thought it meant your standard Bros. Attacks do more damage. It's also really fucking sensitive with timing, there is ZERO room for error and I would often fuck up Bros. Attacks for being off by one frame. The last part of the game also suffered from a huge amount of fetchquesting, getting the beanstar back together. Traveling across 4+ different zones just to get one piece of it sucked cock. Partners in Time is my favorite because the Bros. Attacks still required timing but also memorization, knowing which bro was coming up next and what button to push in response. Also no gayass SP meter, just spam the fuck out of the enemy with the two dozen Copy Flowers you have.
Superstar Saga is good, but not S tier. The giant battles in Bowser's Inside Story were really great though.

It seems like my playing Dream Team first was a poor introduction to the series.
Replies: >>178189
Dream Team was ok, not the best but not the worst. That goes to Paper Jam, holy shit what an abomination, returned it halfway through and never even bothered to finish it. After Wiggler demanded I go fetch 12 more apples for it (after the game deceived you into thinking you only had to give it one), I lost my shit and resold it on eBay. Hated every second of that game.
