How would you even fix Sonic Heroes without cutting half of the content? It's a game where the highs are high and lows are super 'low', and unlike Sonic Adventure 1 the highs aren't nearly as high and lows aren't nearly as fixable (Most Sonic levels in SA1 are fine and it's easy to fix the bad ones, all Amy levels are fine except for how Amy so lacking in momentum she's a pain to play if you don't mod in her SA2 physics, all Gamma stages are at least fine but super short, it's really just Knuckles and Big that are consistently bad).

It's jew politics, same reason Sonic is voiced by some asswipe named Benjamin instead of Roger Craig Smith. At least they seem to be making good choices from the hand pedowood deals to them. Idris Elba as Knuckles in the last movie worked because he sounds like a jungle monkey but can actually act, making him perfect for a movie depicting knux as a headstrong sperg with a heart of gold. Likewise I can expect Shadow in the new movie to be in universe trying way too hard to be a super cool badass and coming off as a dweeb instead.

I don't mind Heroes' controls. Once you get used to them you can beat the levels quite fast.
All I want them to do is fix Casinopolis, make the light dash more accurate like in Frontiers, change the level order for all the teams so it doesn't feel as repetitive to do all 4 campaigns, fix the Chaotix objectives and change the last boss.
Bonus points if they let you make your own teams once you beat the game and unlock a few new characters.

Post about games you've beaten or shit talk the ones you gave up on for good. 

I just beat Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. It's mechanically superior to the first game simply by virtue of having a memo function, but everything else is way fucking worse. 
The prologue is good enough for a Layton game, it establishes what you're going to look for, namely the box and the murderer of your professor (the police thinks it's suicide but your first puzzle is to prove there's no way it could've been). It starts with the cardinal sin of having a forced tutorial in a sequel that plays the exact same but I can overlook that as it was rather short. Puzzles at this stage are about what you'd expect, but then
>on the train you get the hamster puzzle, one that you need to get pieces for throughout the game, except you don't even need to do that because you can easily beat it with an incomplete set making it more of a minigame than an actual puzzle 
>then there's the tea "puzzle", the fucking tea "puzzle". Not only do characters tell you the exact solution but 90% of characters want the exact same item combined with the starter items, so you're reliant on a single puzzle to unlock all the tea shit
>puzzles actually get easier after the prologue and, while 5% are bullshit because of shit explanations, 95% are a fucking joke compared to the puzzles in the previous game

Recently played Morrowind. The dice rolls were gay and in conflict with immersion (which is the entire point of 1st person games). It's a dumb half baked idea and there's a reason why no one makes games like this anymore
Why not use one of the combat overhaul mods that changes that, like Better Balanced Combat or Glancing Blows and Crits?
What level did you get to? Don't try to change the subject.

The denuvo crack list is a very long one, so I assume they went with whatever is at the beginning of that backlog. I'm sure some yuropoors were chomping at the bit waiting to play this pretty generic looking soccer game, but I am biased.
Is there even a denuvo protected game that’s worth playing? Most of those games can be played using switch emulators if you really wanted to. Most on the list are poorly reviewed

Someone finally came up with a replacement for the old Blinking Light Win to fix NES frontloaders. Unfortunately all this seems to do is move the cartridge slot forward and remove the ZIF mechanism so you'll still need to find a 72-pin connector that doesn't deathgrip your cartridges, which is a problem the Blinking Light Win didn't have.

Last thread here >>176775 https://web.archive.org/web/20231126140709/https://zzzchan.xyz/v/thread/176775.html hit the bumplock limit a few days ago and is one post away to hit the reply limit. Given how we've had 3 consecutive weekends worth of videogames to some extent it's crucial to create thread here and now to keep the ball rolling.

Now that I've got that out of the way, in hindsight, what the fuck happened to gamenights in Sleepy? Looking back on the archive, to the few catalog pages saved from 2020:
<GAME NIGHT VOTE/PREPARATION THREAD >>1004, ran from September/October 2020 until February/March 2021 (~5 months), saw at least 12 gamenights in that period of time judging by catalog screenshots and discounting gimmick threads and static servers
<Game Night Organization Thread >>176775, has run from November 2022 to November 2022 (1 year), has seen 10 gamenights in that timeframe, 4 of these being in December last year and 3 of them being this month
I know the coronahoax was hot in between 2020-early 2022, but that's no excuse for the gamenight drought we've been suffering this past year. For comparison, just as a reminder for how gifted this site used to be a few years ago, in that Autumn 2020-Winter 2021 timeframe it saw gamenights for:
>Co-op campaigns for Doom, Sven and DX
>Mechwarrior LL
>S4 League
>Joint Ops
>AI War

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 play some fucking arcade games. 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?
Forever, as I'm switching to a rolling release format. I have the whole 3.7TB MAME set and a bunch of No-Intro sets on top of that, so just ask for whatever game you like and I'll upload it so we can play with our joysticks together. (no homo)

If you can't figure it out, bitch at me and I'll post a text file.

Recommend good indie vidya or rant about pozzed shit.
I been playan some good stuff:
This game fucks. Is the only instance I can think of, of a game doing the 90s/early2000s look right. No modern lighting, no pixelated textures, no bullshit. Just pure quake-like goodness and busty babes. Gameplay is fast-paced without unnecessary complex mechanics. It oozes personality, from the graphics, to the SFX, to the fun enemies.   My only grudge is that the music is just atmospheric with no tunes to rock with. I listened to old metal while playing which I recommend doing.
Overall, I recommend it a lot. Full-game is out on itch.io. Releases June 8th on steam.

Just an eroge I played. Nothing special but has nice smut.

I played Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos on the highest difficulty and it sucks. The hitpoints function oddly, at least on that mode. You get hit once and lose about half your health, then you get hit again and lose another third. Essentially, you can only ever take 3-4 hits without healing. That means all the max HP upgrades are a red herring (although the same upgrade tree gives more health from healing sources, which are probably worthwhile).

Anyway, the game basically plays like a very clunky version of A Link to the Past. As in, almost all of the equipment is directly aped from that game. It's fairly easy, but a lot of deaths feel cheap. I have walked into a room and instantly died because an enemy was spawned on me. It also has co-op, but apparently it's still buggy to this day. One big piece of advice for accelerating progression to anyone who tries it: always buy the elevator shortcuts. Lower floors drop more of the upgrade currency (e.g. dungeon 1 floor 2 drops more than dungeon 1 floor 1, dungeon 2 floor 1 drops more than dungeon 1 floor 3, etc), which you lose most of upon trying to re-enter a dungeon after having died.

There are a couple collectathons I recall. One is fishing and the other is finding 100 orbs hidden across the world. What's strange is the orbs upgrade your dungeon currency retention between dungeon attempts, but it only ever goes up to 25% and you're almost done with the game by the time you collect them all.

There are also some other classe

Yeah, those are some bad cases of tumblr noses and ugly characters trying to pass for chibi. I hadn't even heard of this but if the idea is to combine a structured hand-crafted world like ALttP with roguelike progression and dungeon delving then that sounds like putting pickles on chocolate cake.
