Get the game here (stolen from last game night): https://mega.nz/file/rR0DHKJB#s_C3RXbHGWPciy0qVxWLYrOw8UrRuDyEDNZ1EDz_LzQ
Get it from here if mega is being shit: https://anonfiles.com/D0e8UaUcp4/NEOTOKYO_7z
Even steam should work in a pinch completely free as far as I know: https://store.steampowered.com/app/244630/
Run revLoader.exe to launch the game.
Should you have problems with RevEmu/RevLoader try: https://anonfiles.com/B6eeU0Ufpe/neotokyo_alt_revemu_7z might need some work, this version worked for some anons that had trouble with Dystopia.

Of course micspam should work so bring your best.

i went to alot of trouble to get battlefront 1 and 2 downloaded in hopes of a someday future gamenight, but i havnt got around to it.

i want to do it, but i sincerely hope someone beats me to it.
we really should do CSS, doing both regular and minigame maps might be good enough
should we only do vanilla l4d2 or also do custom maps? also we must do it on expert
if I remember battlefront 2's dedicated servers only work for windows, not linux, so host might have trouble with that
Replies: >>39178
I think this gamenight might've shown competitive games aren't popular, and minigame maps aren't enough to carry the game.
Problem is the player limit, 4-8 players. Mods that increase the limit turn the game into a low quality clusterfuck.
Also someone make a new gamenight planning thread holy shit.

Or you just don't bother? Do you still use your old PS2 or PSP? I recently upgraded my PC and mostly play and emulate everything on it, but I still sometimes play on my PS3. Mostly arcade and fightan games. Also some PS1 and PS2 stuff. I also have a Wii U lying around that someone gifted me and I use it to play some of the few exclusives the console has and wii games. I play some gravity rush and burnout dominator on my vita once in a while too. I was considering getting a switch and hack it but the joycons being fucking shit keep me away from doing so.

>overall it has better components
I have my doubts about that. They usually cut corners for the newer variants of consoles to cut costs.
Replies: >>39027
Maybe today but in the PS2 era new revisions were mostly about fixing hardware errata and making the CPU and custom chips on a smaller process, which saves money (more chips per production run) and makes them last longer because heat kills chips and smaller processes produce less heat. Removing features (usually only if nobody fucking used them, like the HDD adapter on the PS2 or the GameCube's meme component cables) was pursued because it can make the board simpler, which saves money. I don't think cutting corners in manufacturing happened much because all the corner cutting would have been done for the original and cutting further would leave you with something that doesn't fucking work.

Did you forget all the Genesis revisions after the first that fucked up the sound? It's not a new thing to cheap out on consoles later on.
Replies: >>39092 >>39102
That's why I specifically said PS2 era, because by then there weren't any analog components you could cheap out on without affecting game behavior.

"We have a bunch of code names — are you referring to a code name? I don't know what 'Citadel' is — what is Citadel? Just to be clear — internally we have a bunch of different names and they change over time. We definitely have games in development that we're going to be announcing — it's fun to ship games. Alyx was great — to be back doing single-player games, that created a lot of momentum inside of the company to do more of that."

the "flat company" meme has been disspelled for a long time. you can work on solo projects, but if you can't convince others to work on it as well you're not going anywhere. gayban also uses his dark jew sorcery to influence the company into a certain project, goal, or direction, and anyone going against it gets canned.

VR is sadly caught up in the push for GaaS which means buy-once play-once games are not the priority vs shit they can make you subscribe to or games that can be released half-finished with the promise they might one day meet up to their potential. This is no fault of the underlying tech but it's how it's gone because the only companies with the money to throw at serious VR tech development also want GaaS. At least we'll get VR porn and synchronised masturbation aids which seem to already be showing up.

If you read between the lines Valve spent over a decade trying the flat company meme and turned into a mess where everyone was obsessed with their internal reputation for being productive/innovative which was linked to pay and continued employment and not for doing anything that seems boring but was necessary to actually finish a project. This is why pretty much everything after Half Life 2 was licensed in from a more competent team one way or another and then given quickly created and just as quickly abandoned new styles of content because the idea got you a bonus/kept your job but developing it further would see you fired.

I was playing some CDDA using the aftershock mod but I think that is dead now. Which is a shame, CDDA wants to become more "grounded" and removed a lot of the futuristic stuff. Aftershock adds that stuff back in as well as some other removed content and some new like new classes and enemies. It even had the start of its own questline which was really cool, guess I'll see if anyone else picks it up. I wish there were more scifi roguelikes, I heard there was a mech one but I never found it. 
So what are you playing anon?

I'd only do it to support the development of something I liked
I donated once or twice to dwarf fortress before he went retarded. I also donated to ADOM and I don't regret that one. I also paid for Unreal World before it went free and thats another one I don't regret.
I would never pay for something like Stonesoup or CDDA simply because of how schizophrenic their development is.
DCSS devs only care about the core gameplay, and then only for players with thousands of hours.
the food clock was a busted system because different races interact with food differently, so there solution was to remove food to replace the food clock with something else.
what I don't understand is why they didn't just remove the clock from food, but leave food in in some other form. consider the Spell Hunger mechanic. casting one level 6 spell (which costs 6 mana) probably uses 100 times more food than casting a level 2 spell (which costs 2 mana) 3 times. there's depth in there that is interesting
and there's other problems hunger can solve. a common cheese tactic when low HP is to run away from an enemy around a pillar while your health regenerates. tying health regeneration or even the random energy system (enemies sometimes speed up or slow down for a single turn to make kiting harder) into hunger could make artificially drawing fights out have a consequence 

as an aside, I play on akrasiac and they have every release version back to 0.10 available to play and it works fine.

Yakuza 7 is pretty simple combat wise but I still like it. The jobs aren’t too too different with a couple exceptions. Really liking my Chef and Clerk, but also have a hard time making one of the girls anything but Idol since it is so useful. I mainly play it for the not combat stuff so we’ll see if I got the dedication to do shit like late game challenge dungeons. 

No no it was more SCREAMING pouting about not wanting to go potty. The toddler is potty trained but damn if she doesn’t wait till the last second every time so I figured I’d remind her before she got too into video games. Unfortunately she was a LITTLE too into it I guess. 

An uncle of ours bought a whole pigs worth of meat and all the equipment to make sausage. We made dozens of rolls of sausage with him and in return he let us keep a good chunk of it. There’s one of those big ass mixers you crank by hand while he adds some spices as well as some ground beef from a store here, then we had these store bought intestines that you hook up to a hand cranking sausage maker thing. Takes at least two people to operate well.
