Bug Fables is getting a substantial new patch in a couple days, so let's talk about it.
>new quests, although we don't know how many
>new bosses (the trailer shows Team Slacker and hints at the tiny round bug)
>you can RUN
>official randomizer mode
>you can have two party members swap positions in battle instead of rotating all three characters
>cooking seems to be faster

I still haven't gotten around to clearing all the postgame content myself, so personally I'm really looking forward to this because it'll give me a reason to go back and fight some more bosses, and maybe do the card game quest.

The game's in the share thread: >>8891

Recorded the first Zasp+Mothiva fight. Played incredibly badly. I'm used to playing in fullscreen with headphones. I'll try fullscreen next time with the volume up. The recorded volume sounds weird.

In mystery mode, the position of medals isn't what's randomized, but the order you receive them. If you go to the shop and buy a medal, quit, reload and buy a different medal, it will be the same medal. Quitting again and instead getting a medal from a sidequest will also give the same medal. Best strategy is to save up berries and before a boss, buy every medal you can, noting which ones are useful, then reload and stop buying once you've gotten the last useful medal in the sequence. Today I got Block Heal. I already knew this was a very good medal, but I found out something new about it when fighting a golden seedling. If you superblock an attack that would have killed you, the heal is applied after the attack but before the end of the enemy turn. This means any attack that can be superblocked can be survived with that medal regardless of the damage it deals. It's an incredibly powerful medal as very few attacks are totally unsuperblockable, but only if you can git gud. Looking on the wiki, you can also survive any multi-hit attack by only superblocking the very last hit. I've also been very lucky with golden seedlings. I got two before entering the golden tunnel, another one just before the Golden Settleme

While Maki offers you money regardless of whether you used any items fighting him, there's another point where the devs did add a variable outcome to the text that I thought they might have missed. When you stand on the Sunset Inn's balcony and examine the statue of Venus, Vi says it has no face and is creepy, and Kabbu says no one has ever seen Venus and it would be sacrilege to give her a face. If you finish the chapter before getting this discovery, Kabbu says that "our team and Aria are the only ones who have seen Venus" instead.

Recorded the Venus' Guardian fight. Very easy. Mystery mode has been kind and the medals I have allow me to deal massive damage very quickly with little risk. There's no fucking way I blocked that poorly with Kabbu and fucked up that tornado toss though. I think OBS is making the game lag. The only time it's lagged naturally is during the Maki+Kina+Yin fight. I think that can be solved by turning off some effects, but haven't remembered to try yet.

Mods will fix it. :^)

That's right, it's a mosaic thread - been a while, hasn't it? Still remember how they work?

>I'm a newfag, how does this work?
We start with a video game cover cut up into tiles. Each tile will have a number and letter. The job here is (ideally) for a different anon to design each tile. You claim which tile you want (e.g. A1, C3, B5) then you save the corresponding tile, design it, then post it back in the thread.

I'll start with the original cover and the template, then I'll dump the tiles. We've also got sister mosaic threads with different covers on /geimu/ and 8moe/v/. Participate in those as well if you have the time, ideas, and will to do so!

It's a real shame to see.  I don't think any of us really buys many games these days, but Playism was a nice alternative to Steam, especially for independent Japanese games.  It seems like they're throwing in the towel and just moving their storefront to Steam: they say they'll be "renovating" the website, but if they aren't selling games/media and aren't maintaining the games/media download pages, I don't know what changes they could perform that would help them be more relevant.  They don't say why they're doing this, but I have to imagine it has something to do with visibility and money.

Also feel free to discuss Steam alternatives, for the handful of new games that are worth buying.

Do you like game wikis, anon?
I used to consult them all the time when I was younger, but I've noticed something weird. Reading game wiki articles, even if you try and avoid spoilery stuff or things you haven't encountered yet, feel like they...flatten out the game somehow? Talking about games with friends or other anons doesn't have the same effect, and, strangely enough, neither does checking a guide or walkthrough even though those can spoil things. It's not even just about spoiling yourself, it's almost like reading things in a wiki format (even an incomplete wiki) changes how you experience and especially remember and think about games, dulls it somehow. 
Does this make sense to anyone? If so, why do you think wikis do this?

>Then I guess you won't mind getting permanently banned from zzzchan and every other chat and social media website.
Talking is extra work to get something compared to just searching it up is my point, so when you use it for certain things its just a chore. I certainly don't get extra joy from the mere act of talking itself.
>If everyone knows everything then there's nothing left to discuss except flinging your shitty opinions at each other.
If you honestly believe speculation isn't opinion based, then i really have nothing to say about your intelligence. If you mean information exchange, once again it really ain't that interesting from the talking aspect.

You'll never be able to back yourself up with this kind of discussion as an obvious point, so have fun with that.

Wasn't practically all of the story of kosherwatch on a wiki because Blizzard couldn't be arsed writing it when they were making the game.
There are certain game genres that I hate to actually play, but enjoy finding things out about. I'll read those wikis. None of those genres are ones that anyone I know enjoys, either, so it's purely for my own satisfaction. Also, I'll read (not just refer to if necessary) a wiki even for a game I do enjoy if it has version differences, bugs and glitches, and similar technical information that interests me.

About where do you usually stop? After you kill Slazar and move on to the island? Because while I really like the game I will also readily admit the island is easily the worst part of it and I can see why someone would drop it there.

It's at different points each time. I recall fighting the big guy with a beard in a barn the first time and I dropped it not long after that. More recently I got to the bit where you harpoon the river creature from a boat.
Another time I dropped it not long after the first fight with one of those massive humanoid fuckers in an arena.
I've tried to give it a chance, but I just really can't enjoy it.

>>14531 (OP) 
I've beat Tyson, both on emulator and original hardware. Castlevania 1, 3, and 4 on emu. Never bothered with Contra. If you want to talk about hard games, what about Ninja Gaiden? Best I've managed was to get to the final boss rush (I know I beat the first one, can't remember if I beat the second or not) on that retro NES thing (not mine), but couldn't finish it.

I've never actually finished Final Fantasy Tactics. I think the furthest I've gotten is the mission near the end where you face off against the enemy engineer (forget his name) and he's got a team of monsters. I think it's more that I get burned out by that point in the game than anything. Similarly, I've never finished Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn for the same reason. Game is long as fuck and I get burned out midway through part 4. Some anon also mentioned Battleblock Theater. Never finished that one either, but that was because I was playing co-op with someone and haven't revisited it since. Backlog is also fuckhueg, but if I'm not about to start listing the shit I've not even started.

Holy water is OP as fuck in the NES Castlevanias.

Remember when video games used to have better sound? Today we can have games as detailed as real life, but sound-wise, ridiculously flat. You can thank Creative's patent jewing and Microsoft's butchering of DirectSound for getting audio technology in games stuck in the early 00's and forcing you to use an external solution such as OpenAL Soft or ALchemy to restore hardware audio features in older games if you are using a newer OS.
It would only be years later until things got back on track. Valve updated CSGO's audio engine and introduced normalfags to HRTF. Modders are adding HRTF and enviromental audio to games, both new and old. Webm related, this makes paid software such as (((Dolby Atmos))) sound awful in comparison. Give it a few years, and we might surpass A3D.

My Xonar DSX is serving me well, not sure you can even find many other soundcards anymore, DAC/AMP combos are after all more popular now. That said unless you really have some trash audiochip the biggest advantage from dedicaded HW is probably just being able to run high impedance stuff at all.

I listen to my headphones with my Aune X1S (the 10th anniversary one), but I regret getting the AKG K712 Pro's for it. I should have saved more money and bought the Sennheiser HD 600's with it.
>That said unless you really have some trash audiochip the biggest advantage from dedicaded HW is probably just being able to run high impedance stuff at all.
I hope that there will be mobos that can handle high-impedance headphones in the near future. DAC/AMP's are way too expensive (for the average guy that just wants to fucking listen to music in his good headphones).

Will most likely never happen, doesn't make sense financially and will always be inferior technically.
>(for the average guy that just wants to fucking listen to music in his good headphones)
It depends on your definition of good headphones but really doubt someone who can spend that much on headphones will mind an extra 50-100 bucks on a DAC, it's not like there's many (if any even) worthwhile headphones that need an amp below 300 bucks.
>I hope that there will be mobos that can handle high-impedance headphones in the near future.
My ~$200 mobo onboard audio could probably handle a bit more than the 50Ω headphones I use right now. If you need more than that wouldnt a cheap amplifier be enough?
