Special thanks to anons on the share thread for uploading their copies of older Sven gamenights.
The rules have been relocated to the Rules Page

This thread solely exists to remind you that you are a dork.
I'm going to be honest. I'm not very good with horror games. 
I do enjoy the thrill of being scared. The Silent Hill franchise, for example, I can be both scared by and intrigued enough to make me want to continue playing.
There are some games that I find to stressing to play though. Laugh all you want but the multitasking in the FNAF games makes me want to close the game. Of course, the jumpscares aren't scary at all and you get used to them very quickly, That's where this new fan game comes in which ramps the scare factor up to 11. I've tried but I just can't force myself to play it. It's too scary.
Also I've never played Ao Oni. I should give it a try.
A bread for all things emulation.

I like getting PS2 games because they usually come with thick, fully colored manuals and they are very satisfying to open.
My copy of War of the Monsters came with a cool poster and it's really cool.
I also like my MGS Legacy Collection copy which has a MGR:R ad on the manual. It didn't come with the artbook it's supposed to come with but I got if for relatively cheap.
I would like some clarification from the mods about a continuing issue with the news thread. Someone (or maybe multiple people) thinks that anything game journos shit out onto their websites constitutes "news", even if it's just some retarded clickbait opinion piece. In my opinion these are all derailment in a thread that is supposed to be about vidya news, and should be deleted or moved to a Gamergate thread instead.

Can I get a mod opinion here to set the rules straight?

Guide to a happy share thread

>Leechers
1. Before requesting, search online and use distributed search engines (e.g. InfraSearch, Opencola, YaCy, FAROO).
2. Look in CheckBeforePosting, and the archives.
3. If a password is required check the archives, especially the source thread if it's listed.
4. Be as specific as possible. If you have the cover art of the file you want, post it in the share thread.
5. Links to files will purposely be misleading by having spaces, lines, keys & passwords split in the post. This includes torrent hashes.
	a. If you see a string of hex characters (e.g. c12fe1c06bba254a9dc9f519b335aa7c1367a88a) with or without dashes, it is torrent hash (remove dashes).
	b. If your torrent client is shit, prepend magnet:?xt=urn:btih: to the string.
	c. Find and Replace (sed/tr/awk) is your friend.

>Uploaders
1. When in doubt, upload. Ask questions later.
2. Upload to multiple hosts and keep a local copy if space permits.
3. Obfuscate your links; encode them in base64, and/or indirectly link via a private paste bin (e.g. zerobin.net) to confuse bots and web crawlers.
4. Protect your uploads with a password, key, or generator. Rename the files something random (e.g. their checksums). Maybe even pad files to the nearest GB or so to confuse content identification engines.
5. If your connection is stable, it is extremely advisable to self host using anonymity tools like Freenet, I2P, Gnunet, distributed NNTP or MixMinion/Mixmaster.

>Advice on building or upgrading
Post your build list or current specifications, including a monitor: https://pcpartpicker.com/
Provide specific use cases (like playing vidya, editing or programming).
Specify your budget and region.
Think twice before deciding to buy something to avoid buyer's remorse.

>Motherboards
At least one PCIe 4.0 M.2 slot.
Good VRM (power delivery) is required for CPUs like the i5 13500 and above.
Don't pair a K CPU with a B mobo chipset.

>CPUs
HTPC(4K60)/Web Browsing: 5600G, 14100/12100
Vidya: 7600, 7500F, 12600K, 12700KF; budget: 5600, 12400F
Overkill vidya: 7800X3D; alternate: 14600K/13600K
Workstation: 7950X, 14700K, 7900X; budget: i5 13500
AM4 upgrade: 5600, 5800X3D
Avoid iGPU-less CPUs, 5600X (if it is more expensive than the 5600)

>CPU coolers
Air: Phantom Spirit EVO/Peerless Assassin 120 SE; budget: Freezer 36 Air
Liquid: Arctic Liquid Freezer III
Avoid liquid coolers with a single 120mm fan.

>RAM
DDR4: Zen3/AM4 - 2x 16GB 3600 MT/s CL18; for locked "non-K" 12th/13th/LGA1700 - 2x 16GB 3200 MT/s CL16
DDR5: Zen4/AM5 - 2x 16GB 6000 MT/s CL30; for unlocked "K" 13th/14th/LGA1700 - 2x 16GB 6400MT/s CL32
Slower kits are also fine, if much cheaper. Just make sure you check the benchmark comparisons.
Note that the sweetspots are bound to change with the upcoming Zen5 and Meteor Lake processors.

>SSDs
Avoid: outdated Samsung 970 Evo Plus, cheapest poorfag NVMe SSDs.
https://ssd.borecraft.com/

>GPUs
Avoid: GPUs that were used for shitcoin mining, 4070 Ti, 4060 Ti, 3050, NVIDIA GPUs in general if you're a Linuxfag.
1080p: used 3070/3060 Ti, 4060/3060 12 GB, 7600/6650 XT/6600 XT; budget: 6600; poorfag: used 2060
1440p: 4070S/4070, 7900 GRE; budget: 6700 XT
2160p: 4080S/4080 (at MSRP); budget: 4070S Ti (avoid MSI models), 7900 XT/XTX
Production: 4090, used 3090; budget: 4060 Ti 16GB; poorfag: 3060 12GB

>12VHPWR
DO NOT USE ANGLED 12VHPWR ADAPTERS
Fully seat a 12VHPWR connector in its socket, otherwise the connection can melt.

>PSUs
Avoid: untested units, Bronze/Silver rated (assuming you live in yuroland).
Not worth buying a new PSU unless it's ATX 3.0 compliant.
Aim for 50-75% PSU utilization at full system load.

https://hwbusters.com/best_picks/best-atxv3-pcie5-ready-psus-picks-hardware-busters/ (archive: https://archive.is/QrPHX)

>Case (from $ to $$$)
mATX: I don't fucking know.
ATX: Lian Li Lancool 216, Lian Li Lancool III, Fractal Torrent.
AVOID: 'Silent' cases, fanless cases, Corsair 4000D airflow, Montech AIR 903 Base (awful stock fans).

>Monitors
Avoid: panels with less than 120 Hz refresh rates, without a single DisplayPort input and Variable Refresh Rate technology (G-Sync/FreeSync).
Check professional reviews for any monitor before you buy at sites like TFTCentral, pcmonitors.info, Monitors Unboxed, or RTINGs.
The bottom tier monitor for any decent gaming build has a 144+ Hz 24" 1080p IPS panel, of which there are many on market for around $125 (some great ones go even as low as $100).
Aim for a panel with low response times and perceived motion blur mode (Black Frame Insertion).
1440p 27" high refresh IPS is a common target for many new builds. 1440p is relatively easy to drive with even mid-range graphics cards.
Decent 2160p (4K) gaming monitors start at around $500.
OLED monitors have good HDR (including infinite contrast) and nearly instant pixel response times. However, potential burn-in is an important consideration for OLED monitors.
TL;DR: They all suck.

>OS
Install Ventoy on a flash drive, then transfer the iso files to it.
You can activate Windows with KMS_VS_ALL:

>Another leaker has claimed that a PSP/PS Vita style PlayStation handheld is in the works, and it’ll supposedly support PS4 games at launch. 
>The handheld was first rumored back in February. 
>The following month, reports surfaced that Microsoft is working on a gaming handheld. 
>Could both companies be preparing portable systems?
>The latest report comes from Russian journalist Anton Logvinov (via ResetEra), who first leaked Death Stranding and Horizon Zero Dawn PC ports prior to their announcements. <There’s some skepticism about Logvinov’s reporting, so take this rumor with a grain of salt. 
>However, known leaker MooresLawIsDead (MLID) — who first leaked PS5 Pro specs — is also convinced that a PS Vita-esque system is coming.
>Logvinov claims that the “PSP” like handheld will support PS4 games at launch. 
>He also likened the device to Steam Deck, which somewhat aligns with what MLID said back in February.
>MLID claimed that the handheld will feature a custom AMD Accelerated Processing Unit, and will be backwards compatible with digital PS4 games as well as PS5 games with a “Pro-like patch applied.” 
>He further suggested that the device will be part of PlayStation’s next-gen hardware family, possibly launching with or after the PS6.

What have you bene playing lately? If you're human and play games on the regular there might be something about them that has stuck to you and you deem worthy of sharing. If faggot e-celebs exist it is proof that plenty can be said about videogames, whether good or bad. Gameplay, story, characters, its sounds department or its music, the graphics or lack thereof, and the like.

For instance, I've been meaning to finish Forbidden Siren on the PS2, and you can tell it's a Japanese game because there are funny slanted faces plastered over the 3D mesh equivalent of a potato.
Gameplaywise it plays like your average survival horror game with a unique twist. For some reason I'm yet to figure out, the player characters have the ability to "sightjack" the vision of the faggots trying to kill you. Using this technique you can check on their behaviour and their movement pattern, as well as guessing where they are located using the map and their field of vision. It's a pretty cool gimmick the game was built on, given you're helpless most of the time and there are plenty of villagers with firearms sprinkled throughout the map.

That being said, I've only procrastinated completing this game because it's a fucking slog to play through. The gameplay loop consists of missions printed on time slots on some retarded looking bulletin board, and each mission needs one objective done to be completed. Keep in mind there are 10 different playable characters the story is constantly jumping to from mission to mission, and the game is constantly reusing the handful stages there are between them. I can't forgo how I had cleared Akira's mines mission at the beginning of the game to be immediately greeted by the same mines in the very next mission only with a different character at a different time, felt like the game spat at my face at that time.
What's more, more often than not you'll clear a mission only to be forced to return to another one you completed an hour ago only to collect some stupid new item on the map. From what I've seen so far this has to be done with every mission in the game, and since you don't get to decide which mission's next you're forced to backtrack two missions to gain access to a new level. This is dogshit level design, and this is coming from the guy who directed the first Silent Hill 1 and later on produced the Gravity Rush games. The fact that a game you have to sit through for 3 hours from start to finish is more replayable than a game split into missions speaks volumes on how grating this game is. I can only hope the second game is better.
On a side note, the localization on this game reminds me how fucked the English language is. The Italian, French and Spanish version all use sex instead of gender on the characters' bios. Surprisingly enough even the UK version does as well, the US one being the odd one of the bunch. I supposed Americans chugged too much fluoride compared to yuropoors, even back in 2004.

>If you do draw, draw to the best of your ability! If you're not giving it your all people will notice.
>Any drawfags with works in progress, please post any updates so that the requester and everyone else knows that people are still working hard!
>If for any reason a request is scrapped, upload what you have and say it's at its most complete state. Maybe ask if someone wants to take over and finish it for you.

A new Metroidvania game came out a couple days ago and it's currently the highest rated game of the year. Secrets are still being uncovered about it as of this OP and a lot of it is collaborative stuff, so don't be surprised if you come across something that stumps you. It's a lot like Tunic or Void Stranger if you've played either of those.

Game can be downloaded at https://files.catbox.moe/y34ula.zip and the password is cs.rin.ru.
Ask ITT whatever you feel like asking that's related to videogames; anything that doesn't deserve its own thread, nebulous denominator notwithstanding.

Why are the PS2 controllers such a cheap Chinese piece of shit? I've got two of them lying around and both of them are ridden with issues. Joystick drift, shoulder buttons caving in after a press, face buttons not working, broken D-pads; the thing falls apart the moment you lay an eye on them.
The original Dualshock, while uncomfortable, was well built and meant to last long, and for once isn't plagued with any of the above. It'd be a no brainer given how the PS2 is compatible with PS1 controllers, but there are some games which forces you to use the PS2 controller and its "features".

What am I supposed to do, buy a bunch of PS2 controllers and throw them away every 3 games? How easily can they be repaired, or at least fiddled with to work a little longer? Even if I were to track down some obscure conversion dongle for the PS2 I'd still not be able to play the games that use the pressure sensitive buttons (MGS, Silent Hill, Siren).
Recommend good indie vidya or rant about pozzed shit.
I been playan some good stuff:
>Zortch
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.

Alleged Internal Ubisoft Document Declares “Representation Is Part Of Our DNA” And It “Firmly Stands For Diversity And Inclusion”
https://archive.ph/5BdNi
>This alleged document was shared to social media by YouTuber TheQuartering. The document begins, “First, we want to make it very clear that we do not accept hate, harassment and other forms of abuse in any way, and we are deeply saddened to see the negativity and hatred currently spreading on our co-workers’ personal profiles, and on our and our partners’ social media platforms.”
>It continues, “We are proud to represent the diversity and inclusion that exists in society as part of our everyday work. Representation is part of our DNA and will remain that way regardless of external pressure or influences.”
>Next, the document instructs, “If you are exposed to or witness any negative behaviours towards your colleagues online, do not hesitate to reach out to your manager, Arcade HR or the Communications Team. We are here to help. Should a situation escalate to a point where you feel unsafe, please contact the Ubisoft Security and Risk Management (SRM) team.

>what's this?
From the fucking disgusting people who brought you a very shitty DOS Sonic fangame back in 1998, play in this DooM mod very unique kart racing game where you plunge into chasms and barge into walls. Choose your racer from a wide array of shitty meme characters made by 12 years old join my Discord server at https://dicksuck.cum/invite/g4yN1gg3r5, on tracks made by the fucking geniuses who thought building complex 3D geometry on an engine that renders 2D sprites was a good idea. Trannies don't deserve human rights.

On the flipside, the karting's serviceable, the items are decently balanced and the server linked in this OP contains none of the gay shit described above. There can be some fun derived from this kusoge even if the paragraph above reads the contrary.
>is this game fun?
In spite of what's said above it is indeed a moderately fun game. Try it out if you might.
>is this server related to that other server back from Summer?
No. This is a vanilla server that's running a bunch of new racetracks, some custom characters and not much else. It bears no relation to the >people that populated that one server, so please give this one a go if that one's warped your perception on the game.

>how can I download this game?
You will need both the game's files and the addon pack that the server's running in order to run it.
<GAME: https://github.com/STJr/Kart-Public/releases/tag/v1.6
<ADDONS: https://pixeldrain.com/u/f7t9i3Zv
To install the game on Windows:
Head over to the first link, download srb2kart-v16-Installer.exe then install the game on whichever location you've chosen. Afterwards, move to the game's root folder, create a subdirectory named addons then dump the contents from the ADDONS zip inside of it.
To install the game on Linux:
You'll have to download both the source code and AssetsLinuxOnly.zip in order to compile the Linux executable. Otherwise, just refer to this guide here: http://wiki.srb2.org/wiki/Source_code_compiling which worked for me by summoning cmake /path/to/source/code from a different folder to the source code's, then typing in make inside said folder.
Once you've got the working Linux binary, head over to your user's /.srb2kart folder then extract the contents from the ADDONS .zip listed above inside the addons/ folder. Create this folder in case it doesn't exist already.
>is this a virus?
I'm not sure. It can be said the dev team's HIV positive though.

The server's IP's located at 198.98.58.112. Gamenight will begin Friday 1st at no one bothers following the schedule, just join in at a time you expect faggots to be playing in.
Post about games that make dick hard and/or your heart soft. 
Complain about never ever eroges, talk shit about nip games for being technically inferior if your game is slow as shit at least don't let it crash from speedhacks fuck, talk shit about western games for being thematically inferior, recommend some decent eroges, and so on.

>t. Hideo-kun, age 8
Now that SF6 has been out for a while, people are beginning to look forward to Tekken 8 and other assorted titles to carry the fighting game torch into 2024.  I'm not sure how much there will be to say about those games when they come, but in the meantime there are a couple topics which I figured bore discussing.

>Them's Fightin' Herds will end active development after 2 additional characters.  Story mode is cancelled.
I went trawling through the Steam and developer forums for this announcement to see what the community reaction was, but there wasn't much helpful.  I was able to find some statements from the developers from as recently as the start of November where they promised story mode content would come for free at a later date.

>Rivals of Aether 2 asks for $200,000 to help cover costs going into 2024 . . . after investing more than $2 million throughout development
<"We want to make the best tournament-level platform fighter."
<they currently have $570,000 with 17 days to go in the crowdfunding campaign

Obviously game development is hard, expensive, and risky, so asking for more money throughout development can sometimes be necessary.  But I can't help but feel as though hyperfocus on the competitive scene is what always ends up killing games that aren't named Mortal Kombat.
Is this a safe place to discuss Fire Emblem? I'm relatively new to the series, but I do own some of the older games, so if I don't know everything, please go easy on me. As a starter, I haven't played every game in the series, so which one is the indisputably worst?
One of the biggest reasons 2011 was so great.
While new generation consoles and PC keeps getting garbage with only some rare exceptions here and here, some passionate developers all over the world are developing new games for old consoles.
Let's talk about games that were released years after those console got discontinued, and even upcoming ones.
Personally, i can't wait for the new shoot 'em up by Yuzo Koshiro "Earthion" on the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis
Another one is "Goodboy Galaxy" for the Game Boy Advance, that impressed me mostly for the great animations.
Any new games for old console you are looking for? Or any game you want to talk about, or even recommend?
Does any of you play DDR?
How do you git gud at it?
Today I went to my local arcade and busted some moves but I had a hard time even on easy modo. I was switching between dancing and just using one feet to hit the pads. It doesn't help that I foolishly went with climbing boots instead of light footwear.

>Alright I've got everything set up, now what?

Fucking LEARN, you bitch. Learn the Kana first, then move on to grammar and vocabulary. I don't have all the fucking answers, I'm just the OP. Maybe you can ask for help in this thread, but who knows if you'll find any worthwhile feedback amidst the shitposting. Honestly you should be able to figure most shit out on your own.
How was the last game you played? What did you like or hate about it? Why?

Previous thread >>88859
Let's have a thread about Star Wars vidya. Say what you will about the movies and what they've become, but Disney can't fuck up the extended universe, which was arguably always the best part of the franchise.
I just finished KOTOR1 see the review thread for my, well, review and a part of me wants to replay and do a Dark Side playthrough, but another part of me wants to move on to KOTOR2(with the cut content restoration, of course). Even if Light Side is canon, IIRC, is it still worth seeing what Dark Side has to offer, for reasons that aren't just HK-47 approving of you being an absolute dick?
What did you all think of The Force Unleashed? I remember playing the shit out of the DS, shut up version, and having no idea where to go on an earlier mission on the console version.. Is it still worth playing to this day, should I skip to TFU2, or is Fallen Order better? Which isn't saying a lot, because I didn't like the latter at all.
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:
>JKA
>Co-op campaigns for Doom, Sven and DX
>SRB2K
>Mechwarrior LL
>S4 League
>Empires
>Dystopia
>Joint Ops
>AI War
Just in that small period of time, and that's ignoring the more niche shit like the GBA Mednafen autism, the netplay Pokemon Stadium 2 fuckaround, that Vintage Story server, the Soku tournament, the Wurm saga or those gimmicky Doom WADs that were run from time to time.

Seriously, what the fuck has happened? Did all the hostfags vanish into thin air? Did they all quit the Internet for the remainder of their lives? Did they get a life? Do the only faggots remaining here think dedicated servers are black voodoo magic and their moms will die in their sleep if they learn to fucking host? Are >we going to get our shit together and put together a bunch of fun games on the weekends for old time's sake, or are gamenights as a concept as good as dead?

What's the Jackbox Party Packs?
The Jackbox Party Packs are games in which you can play with 
people in a single room or stream them live with others around the world. They can range to coming up with witty punchlines and jokes in Quiplash, creating strange T-shirts in TeeKO or wondering what the prompt is in Drawful!
Hey lads, how about some OC to welcome in the current year+9?
Simply go to https://www.videogamena.me/ and have it generate a name for a fictitious video game and use your patented "9000 hours in MSPaint(tm)" skills to make a cover for such a game.

Use the following link for resources: https://mega.nz/folder/yq4j3ArS#SowwCg0EqXbPsZXeDEpE0A
 
where I have been collecting creations from many anons over the years as well as templates to help you make said covers. Knock yourself out.
Happy New Year everyone, and here is to many more.
Let's talk about those characters that you thought had a cool design or were particularly hot, but were apart of a bad game, a good game that flopped and never had a sequel, or were relegated to a secondary role only to disappear forever, but you thought deserved more.

For me it's Nariko and Kai from Heavenly Sword
The game sadly wasn't that good and even ran bad with frame rate drops and shit like that, but i think Nariko and Kai had a good design, Nariko was proof that you can make a good female protagonist that is "strong" but still sexy, while Kai had that cute but autistic appeal.
I think that both deserved to be in a much better game, more than single one, in fact.

Another one that comes to my mind is Lien Neville from KOF maximum impact.
She was created as the western counterpart to Mai Shiranui, but after the two Maximum Impact games SNK never brought her back in any other KOF game ever again.
I think she had a cool design and really could have been SNK's Nina Williams.

But there's many others like Sasha and Mathilda from Anarchy Reigns, Sokaku Mochizuchi (his evil spirit summoning is awesome) and Cheng Sinzan (great as a comic relief character) from Fatal Fury...

So yeah, post those characters that you think deserved a better chance.
So the new Sanic Kart just dropped out of fucking nowhere and while it adds a fuckload of features it's getting a bit of a mixed reception. Figured since the game has a following here I'd post it and you can make your own judgements.

https://www.kartkrew.org/

I will say it's a very different experience if you're used to Kart. I've had some gripes and some "wow"s in the short time I've played it.

CURRENT TASKS:
1. OPERATION MAX REVIVE
Rebuild the board's userbase and activity through simple, but effective methods
1. Post across the entire board
Activity creates activity. Use threads you like, make new ones if topics don't exist.  Easy examples are Drawthreads and Friday Night threads, go request or draw something right now.
2. Recruit and recover lost or potential anons
Use this site's OC and features to entice anons if necessary when recruiting, just inform that we are alive.
Here's some sites and links with at least some confirmed anons that can be recruited again:
https://steamcommunity.com/groups/8chotwheels
https://steamcommunity.com/groups/SSAVCH
https://steamcommunity.com/groups/video_games
https://steamcommunity.com/groups/8chmohun
https://steamcommunity.com/groups/8chan_monster
https://steamcommunity.com/groups/GoodLuckEbolaChan
https://steamcommunity.com/search/groups/#text=8ch.net
https://steamcommunity.com/search/groups/#text=8chan
Other sites that might yield fruitful results and have anons (art sites use an account so you can see 18+ content):

https://twitter.com/search?q=Vivian%20James&src=typed_query&f=image
https://rpgcodex.net/
https://old.reddit.com/r/KotakuInAction/
Somewhere on Telegram
Just searching up GG or 8chan-related terms on certain places/sites can get you possible results.
3. Make your own OC/Memes/Content
Doesn't matter what it is even if its just simple edits or full-on drawings or webms, just make it and have fun. Ask in thread for software recs if necessary.
4. Encourage or create fun events, activities, projects, etc.
Think things like 8chanmania, weekly streams, re-translation projects, demo days, or zzz's gaming magazine for example. If you want to do something, try making or reviving it, it can't hurt and these things are great for the board.
5. Use other boards
All it takes for a board to grow is at least 2 dedicated anons using it. Don't be afraid to make a post, check places periodically, shill, or what have you. Don't force discussions to boards, just encourage the usage of them. 

2. OPERATION TRAJAN:
Collect and catalog all of the various localization and censorship accounts of past video games into a single repository from these sources:
romhacking.net
The_Cutting_Room_Floor/tcrf.net

A thread to post and discuss your favorite soundtracks in videogames.
What have you been listening to lately?
I've been listening to 3D Sonic games OST. Crush 40 gives all of these games a pretty good soundtrack. It's usually what I end up remembering when playing sonic games.
Been a while since we had one and I've been thinking about it again so it's time to talk about some Monster Hunter. 
What are ya...
PLAYIN?
HUNTAIN?
MAINING?
CARTIN TO?

Or do you hate MonHunt and want to bitch? Well friend, come on over. We have room in this thread for many opinions, even wrong ones. I myself haven't played in a while. Rise didn't catch on with me the same as the other ones did. I hate the dogs, to much going on with all the palicios and everything during a hunt. Maybe I should give it another go. 
Also maybe we could get a hunting group together again. We did it a bit for portable 3rd and it was pretty fun.
Palworld got a thread so fuck it. I want to talk about HellDivers 2.
This shit wasn't even on my radar until a friend said to check it out. I checked out of gameplay vids and it looked fun, sure enough I'm having a blast. 

I feel like this is the Starship troopers game we were supposed to get with it being just as campy as it should be. It also feels like they took inspiration from warhammer 40k as well considering the bots have a scout walker. 
Guns are fun to use, they could use a tiny buff but I can live with them they way they are. The secondaries all have their uses like the Autocannon being a good slapper and the Railgun being great at getting rid of the big guys. It gets hectic really fast on the harder difficulties and you really need to solid snake your way around the levels unless you want to be drowning in bugs and bots.

So far there are only 2 factions but it looks like there might be at least 4. Each completely change the way you play with the bugs being the unstoppable horde with the designated wallbreaker units like the charger, the bile spewers to bust you when you've bunkered up. Then there is bots. They shoot back, call in support and really seem like a worse threat. There is a current defend order against them and it's an absolute meat grinder. I love the way their eyes light up when they spot you, it casts a glow and looks nice and intimidating. The game has a ton of little details like your soldiers cries becoming more panicked as more enemies come and you are running low on resources, or out of stims. They cackle with glee when you are going full auto on a machinegun or say retarded shit when they get their legs blown off. 
There is a cash shop, but not really. You can get all the currency in games and there is a "premium" progression but all the armor is functionally the same and everyone I've talked with agree the the guns are side grades at best or just kinda shit. 
This was more a random stream of through rather than a coherent thread but here it is. Talk about Helldivers, or shit on it to your hearts content.

Launch Capcom into the sun! Stir fry capcom in a wok! Toss Capcom into active volcanoes! Urinate in Capcom's gas tank!
As much headaches it had caused this place for like a week, its still current and ongoing.

What is this about?  During the first scandal of that kind, a company called Silverstring Media that employed  a friend who was also a tranny of the Lady who started it was discovered. It was consulting company. Thanks to participants outside of the /v/ general focusing on games journalism only, these discoveries fell through the cracks. It was obvious to anyone who wasn't circle jerking inside a general, that those people would sooner or later change tactics and go directly to AAA gaming to change it up instead of pushing their agenda from a "indie Scene" that resembled a smoldering crater than a legit replacement for freeware. 10 years later, and it was discovered that there are multiple narrative consulting companies to like 

> Tangy Yakuza Inc. is a narrative development and consultation studio based in Wuakeka MN and working around the globe. Our mission is to tell smellier, more disgusting stories while making sure every character smells really bad.

Fine, this was joke. What isn't a joke is the influence of people who hate us in the writing and gameplay of virtually every shit game released this decade. This is why some Hue-monkey decided to open a Steam curator to help people not playing these games that got employees from one of those consulting companies so assmad that he reenacts the worst behaviors from web 1.0. and started to bother the poor guy and attempted to get him and the curator b&. In fact, some people are still so extremely mad about being discovered that they stuffed the last thread bullshit.

>What is this nice looking minecraft mod?
No mod, but a rather similar block game made by russians in a real programming language. Unlike that other cube game everything you do is a 5-step process and general pain in the ass.

>What is new since the last server?
-General server performance improvements. Now only consumes half the available RAM idling with zero players.
-Cave-ins can now occur while mining if your roof is not properly supported.
-New and generally annoying first-person arm animations
-New varieties of animals to murder
-Pigs are now aggressive if piglets are around.
-Capturing small animals in baskets is now part of the base game.
-New surface ruins. I've installed the mod that does this better anyways.
-General chiseling improvements.
-More varieties of plants in the base game. A cosmetic improvement only.
-Glider in the base game to kill you from fall damage.
-Rafts in the base game. Slow and shitty. I've installed a mod that makes them usable.
-Generally nicer terrain generation. Oceans and more coherent landforms.
-More and bigger doors
-Angled beams, cosmetic only.

>Wow that sounds really underwhelming for an entire year of development.
It is.

>Server info?
Version 1.19.3
51.81.23.55:27145
No password
I shelled out the extra $5 for the wooping 6GB of RAM. That should be enough for about 8 players in different locations.

>Settings?
Map and coordinate HUD: OFF
Reminder that even mineman doesn't have a map by default. Surely you're not too casual to play without one?
I'll turn it back on if everyone gets hopelessly lost inna woods.
World Height: 256
Days/month: 30
Underground farming: ON
True winters: On
Cave-ins: On as soon as the devs tell us the server command that turns it on.
Body hardiness: 5C
Tree growth time: 8x
Propick radius: 8
Microblock chiseling: All
Land claiming/ global auction house: Off

>What notable mods are installed?
Alchemy - Plants and potions autism. Avoid using mushrooms and flowers until some farming mod is updated.
That OP backpack mod
Wearable Light - Buy from a trader. Hold in hand and press ctrl+RMB to turn it on then you can equip as clothes. 
Better Ruins
Better Crates + Storage Controllers
Bricklayers - Colored brick autism
Ceramos - Tile glazing autism
Millwright - More wind power
More Classes - exclusive recipes disabled. Ignore those when choosing
Primitive Survival - A bunch of things that should be in the base game
Rivers - Adds rivers and an infinite supply of water based mechanical power. Going downstream is fast, going upstream is miserable without
Joy of Sailing - Adds half decent sailboats that help you navigate rivers.
Joy of Painting  - Allows you to upload 32x32 pixel pornography directly to the server.
All the mods that add material variants of blocks

>The game update is 2 weeks old, what mods are missing?
Expanded Foods - Update expected soon
Xskills - update expected not soon. I've done what I can to mitigate the absence of that one blacksmithing skill.
Wild Farming - This guy has to be bullied into maintaining his mods
Wildcraft/Herbarium - A giant mod that is a compatibility nightmare that has inexplicably been sectioned off into multiple smaller mods and is typically only updated in time for the next big dev update to come out.
Those mods that add varieties of creatures - More RAM overhead for no functional value and not up to date anyways.

TOGETHER WE RIDE

>What is it?
Play Fire Emblem together with other people you don't know on a grid and get (generally) fucked up. Work with other anons to get as far ahead into the story as possible using one unit per anon.
>What the fuck?
It's time for strategic grid-based ACTION. The rules are simple: one person controls one unit at a time and the host controls the lord. Assemble an ANON ARMY (play as anime characters!), equip with EPIC GEAR and LEAD THEM INTO BATTLE. Raise your own personal unit - but be careful with your decisions, or it might just die! (second chances available while replacements last.)
>Why play it?
It's an unexpectedly nice format. The game will be FE7 Randomized, with tacthack and other goodness as backup should something go wrong. 

>When is it?
STARTING THIS FRIDAY 5 PM UTC https://time.is/UTC ALL WEEKEND

SETUP

>1. Download mednafen with roms: https://files.catbox.moe/r38zw0.zip
>2. Unpack, drag rom of choice over mednafen.exe to launch it with that (playgaem.bat is provided for your enjoyment)
>3. Press ALT+SHIFT+1 to set up the controls. There can be two buttons assigned to one input. Use the same button for first and second prompt if only one is desired. Try not to assign "t" and "Enter" to anything.
>4. Press t to open a chat menu, type in /connect ny.yuribacon.com and press enter. To rename yourself, use /nick [NAME]. To activate controls, use /dupe 1 .
>5. Play the game

FIRE EMBLEM INSTRUCTIONS: HOW TO FUCK UP IN STYLE

>0. The host controls all lords and deploys as few of them as possible.
>1. Every anon is assigned one unit of their choice when they join from the ones not claimed by others. They can only deploy and control that unit. Move around, trade, etc etc. Use chat to call dibs on units.
>2. If a new unit joins in the middle of a stage (as a reinforcement, etc, etc), that player can assign that unit to himself. If he does, he controls that unit alongside the one that he started the stage with during that stage - effectively controlling two units at once. Next stage, he can only deploy the new unit as usual.
>3. If people can't come to a consensus over who gets what item (stat booster, etc, etc), the host reserves the right to have the final say.
>4. We'll probably fucking die not even quarter of the way in. Game overs mean restarting the stage from the beginning. Do your best!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

>Rompack contains various other roms to play after we finish FE7 Randomizer. There will be a poll and people will be able to vote on the next game.
>If you've played PSX Multitap gamenight, Mednafen version is the same (1.31), you can get away with using your setup. Linux autists can use wine or get this version somewhere by themselves. Use roms from the archive.
>In an unlikely event in which host can't attend, people are invited and encouraged to play some Advance Wars 2 multiplayer. It's not likely, but it's there just in case.
>Press F1 to display help.

GAME TO BE PLAYED WILL BE FIRE EMBLEM 7 RANDOMIZER, LAUNCH "playgaem.bat" FROM THE EXTRACTED ARCHIVE AND PROCEED WITH THE SETUP WHEN THE TIME COMES. GOOD LUCK!
"Dominion of Darkness” is a strategy text game in which the player takes on the role of a Sauron-style Lord of Darkness with the goal of conquering the world. He will carry out his plans by making various decisions. He will build his army and send it into battles, weave intrigues and deceptions, create secret spy networks and sectarian cults, recruit agents and commanders, corrupt representatives of Free Peoples and sow discord among them, collect magical artifacts and perform sinister plots. Note – one game takes about 1 hour, but the premise is that the game can be approached several times, each time making different decisions, getting different results and discovering something new.

Game is avalaible for free, online: https://adeptus7.itch.io/dominion

I am constantly improving the game, adding new content and mechanics, so Your feedback would matter.

If you are hesitant to play the game, I invite you to watch/listen to the reviews:

As most people in the west, i am sick and tired of niggers being shoved everywhere they don't belong.
From turning established white characters into niggers (spiderman, deadshot, nick fury, firestorm, green lantern) to forcing them where they shouldn't be (wearing European armor in medieval settings, or the recent WE WUZ Prince of Persia) 
Not to mention the blatant tokenism where a group of (otherwise white, or asian) characters must have at least one, making ugly version of otherwise cute characters in order to not "offend" them (black inklings and octolings in Splatoon, that honestly look like shit, even putting racism aside) or going for the disgusting race mixing propaganda and pairing niggers with white women.

Today i saw a trailer for this game: "Tales of Kenzera: ZAU"
I only saw the "making of" trailer for it and some glimpses of gameplay, and it seems to be about niggers in Africa dealing with all kind zulu and voodoo shit.
Also, i am surprised that the niggers involved with this game talking about "muh culture" were for once correctly talking about sub-saharian Africa and were not pretending DEY WUZ Egyptian, European, Japanese, Everything-but-Africans, and all that ridiculous bullshit.
No idea if the game goes in WE WUZ territory moving forward, honestly

Now, i am not interested in this shit and i don't want to play it, it's a game about niggers made (mostly) for niggers, and so, it is clearly not for me.
BUT, you know what? I am fine with that.

I found myself (for the first time in ages) not bothered by something like this existing, unlike shit like spider-nog, nigger-deadshot, or niggers in medieval armor in fantasy games (Dragon's Dogma 2, Baldur's Gate, Diablo 4 or that lore-raping garbage game Shadow of War that is still making Tolkien spin in his grave).
Maybe that's because (to me at least) this looks like a genuine attempt to please nogs and homage their homeland, and not an attack on white people and and their culture like the shit containing "divershitty" usually is about.

I also remember as kid playing and not being bothered by games like "Akuji: The Heartless" or "ShadowMan", since both were dealing with Voodoo shit and so having a nigger MC made sense.

So i though, could this be the right way to have niggers in vidya?
++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.
3. All Pokémon must be nicknamed. If the goblin didn't have a name, Conan makes one up.
4. Don't send goblin hentai twice, unless your last sugg was 15 minutes ago or Conan explicitly asked for redumps.
5. Conan should replace resuggs with fresh goblins that come in later.
6. Don't spam the catalog with threads.

I don't think I've seen a single /gsg/ thread on zzz since day zero and I decided I've had enough of waiting for someone else to make it. The one on smug, which you can find here https://smuglo.li/vg/res/1231.html , was made a staggering four (4) years ago, only got 200 posts and the last was made 11 months back, so I think it's time we get our own and hopefully get not glacial levels of activity.

So, what are you playing? Still playing Parajew shit and incesting your entire family in CK2, blobbing in Vicky or has anyone been as far as decided to trying something new more like for a change?

Speaking of Parajew, the latest HOI4 expansion "Arms Against Tiranny" dropped a few weeks back adding a few more mechanics, which should've been in the base game to begin with but are instead, in typical Parajew fashion, locked behind a paywall, like slightly more in depth supply networks, transports, a barebones international arms dealing market and new focus trees for Scandinavian countries. I decided to give it a spin and pirated it for the 15th time and I'm now playing an (read: restarted a dozen times because I keep getting repeatedly fucked over by one thing or another) a-historically focused campaign as Shittaly trying to gigablob the entire universe and it's not going particularly great. Here's a recap of the events so far:
>wrapped up the nigger correction expedition just before March and justified against France while in the middle of it still
>knocked out the frogs by mid 38 after a rather slow and sloppy war, which I won 1:5 ratio, and yoinked all their navy which included 7 juicy BBs, 1 CV, a couple dozen light and heavy cruisers and over a hundred destroyers and subs
>barely managed to nick the the strategic Moroccan half of the strait of Gibraltar by declaring on nationalist Spain, sneaking in from France, making a quick push through an ever narrowing strip of land before it could get gobbled up by the other sides of the civil war and then nailing the peace conference just right to demand it and other minor bits of clay
>took less than a month and almost no casualties
>I'm starting to look at Uncle Adolf or the UK when fucking Marxist Portugal decides to declare war on me out of the blue
>they're landlocked so I just lmao naval invade them with not even a full army of nigger irregulars and own them in 3 weeks
>them being Marxist unfortunately translated to them also being in a faction with the USSR and now I'm at war with them but we are too far to fight
>meanwhile 
>Germany is Germanying along doing typical somewhat historical path of annexing Austria, and then going to war with the Czechs and the rest of the balkans because they all decided to be in one faction
>Poland commies are about to win a civil war
>The UK and Japan have been doing fuckall
>Yugo balkanized
It is now almost Christmas 1938 and I'm preparing to invade Turkey from French Syria so I get access to the black sea and the Soviet border, also setting up some defenses in Portugal and the French/Spanish border because, since they're commies, I expect them to join the Soviets and the war as soon as they finish mopping up the anarchists. I'm not confident I can win against the soviets because I really don't have either enough divisions on the field or manpower to last, but they did fight a civil war so maybe they're not doing as well as usual.

Look at my blob in pic related 5 and post caps of your own blob or border gore or whatever. Also the infograph is several years out of date, it could use a revamp if anyone feels like doing free work.

1st of November in history:

>1805 – Napoleon Bonaparte invades Austria during the War of the Third Coalition.
>1894 – Nicholas II becomes the new (and last) Tsar of Russia after his father, Alexander III, dies.
>1911 – World's first combat aerial bombing mission takes place in Libya during the Italo-Turkish War. Second Lieutenant Giulio Gavotti of Italy drops several small bombs.
>1993 – The Maastricht Treaty takes effect, formally establishing the European Union.
Ok, niggers, post all your new or updated shit here. If you don't know what logo to use, consider using this or something similar. Thanks in advance for the contributions and definitely thank you for all the quality work done for the previous two boards, hopefully this is the last.
Seeing all the gameplay being posted of Dr. Robotnik's Ring Racers has made me rather curious about the state of vidya engines. Looking at just how much the Doom Engine has been modified to the point that there's even a kart racer built using it made me wonder about all the other engines that have come and gone over the years and just how verisitile those could still be if people put in the effort to use them. Are there any other engines actively being supported or have they nearly all fallen by the wayside? Also, what are some "promising" new engines that are being independently developed?
What are some of your favorite skateboarding games? Which Tony Hawk is the best? Is Skate a good series? Do modern skate games still invoke the same amount of fun as the old ones if they don't have AC/DC's "TNT" blaring at max volume?

I played a ton of Pro Skater 4 on exbawks, very fond memories of trying endlessly to impress the bums and going all over the place on Alcatraz. Getting sick combos only to completely fuck it up at the end. Wondering what Tony Hawk is up to now.

The Japanese version of one of the biggest fighting game events happened this weekend. Most of the games were modern trash, but Street Fighter 3 Third Strike was the retro main stage game and that's pretty cool.
Here are some of the new examples from Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes. Have you learned moonrunes yet, anonkun?
Yep, it's that time again. Listen to the mystery music and try to guess which video game they belong to. Share your themes and have others guess them. Maybe you'll find something new that catches your interest?
I'll start with 25 songs, difficulties ranging from easy songs that even people who don't play games must have heard at least once, to some more obscure stuff.

Now that the dust has settled, what do you think about ToTK? Was it worth the hype? Or was it all one big asset flip? And what about that live-action Zelda movie? I, for one, am terrified of it. But yeah, talk about Zelda, keep it civil. and no Zelink.

Why is it so hard to fucking get?
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 
>hints are also more retarded, rather than a small hint to lead you into the right track you just get a "try again :)" if you fuck up, including a literal "Try again." in one puzzle, yet it still pauses your screen and forces you to stare at it for 3 seconds just to make sure you really understand that you need to try again with a different answer 
>the actual hints are just as bad as the worst of the first game and there's even duplicated hints in some puzzles 
>despite the mechanical improvements there's still no way to skip conversations you've already seen, even though you often do need to talk with the same NPC twice to get a new puzzle and there's nothing to tell the ones with puzzles apart
>actual spoilers, first game ends with a satisfying richfag wanting to dote on his daughter in a way that made sense for the universe, second game is just DUDE GAS LMAO  where the twist is a do-anything magic to justify everything to that point, which just feels like the writers gave up halfway 
>and if feels that way even more because they end the game and then remember that everyone forgot about the dead professor so the after-credits scene (you can't skip the credits and you're forced to watch this) show that he's not dead now because he's alive and it was probably suicide so ignore the murderer 
Overall it's a pretty gay game. I hope the third isn't as shit and the puzzles are more in line with the first game's but with the memo function.

FEATURING RAIDEN II, GAIAPOLIS, EXVANIA AND MORE LATER
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)

I consider Tunic to be among the finest games made so far. It's an indie isometric action-adventure game if you've not heard of it, and that's as much information I recommend learning for deciding whether to play or at least tolerate the game without spoiling anything else.

'uggcf://1svpuvre.pbz/?xbe7ozkdi4sthoyict6a' (rot13 for dummies)

What makes Tunic phenomenal has less to do with the bits that constitute the game (though the soundtrack is excellent) and more to do with how it guides its player to completion without anything so arresting as waypoints, minimaps, quest logs, or even language. There is a clear means of progression, but it is incomplete and demands some degree of interpretation experimentation to finish constructing its context. There are even some elements that can only be discovered through assumptions reinforced by how the world was made. There are games like Myst and Syberia as well as some games like Super Metroid or Silent Hill 2 that have flashes of this, but these were products of circumstance; only Tunic and Outer Wilds feel like adventure was well-understood (can't vouch for La-Mulana yet.)

Do you have any ideas or criticisms to share about adventure in game design? What about some moments that evoked adventure for you? How about inverse, where you felt like like the game was made for retards?

https://archive.md/NQlRq
>The new settlement (via court documents) of the lawsuit will see Tropic Haze, the company behind Yuzu, paying out $2.4 million to Nintendo and ceasing all distribution, promotion, and development of the emulator.
>What’s more, the company will hand over control of their website, yuzu-emu.org, to Nintendo. With the emulator effectively being shut down, the team’s $30,000/month Patreon will likely be shut down too.
>Previous arguments for the lawsuit noted that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom was downloaded over 1 million times before its official launch, and that Yuzu’s Patreon (which they use for support to develop the emulator) doubled during that time.
>Nintendo has been known to aggressively protect their intellectual property and/or copyright. A notorious case with an alleged Switch hacker named Gary Bowser ended with the person imprisoned (though released now) and fined millions of dollars, which he’s still paying out.

New Fallout 4 mod by American Krogan
Grounded Commonwealth
Public beta 
>Grounded Commonwealth is a Fallout 4 modification that overhauls hundreds of NPCs and alters thousands of records so that the experience now aligns more with what you would expect from a caricatured America that never moved on from its 1950s Atomic Age culture. No more sassy girl boss raiders. No more diverse demographics. No more modern political posturing. Dozens of main characters have been reworked and revoiced, and the dialogue of several quests has been adjusted.

>what's this?
A thread for the organization and development of a VN with minor puzzle/adventure game elements starring Libbie the Cyber Oryx.  Previous thread: >>118872 (archive: https://archive.ph/z17yE)

>what will the game be like?
A simple, short puzzle/adventure game presented like a VN and inspired by old Flash adventure/"sim" games.  We'll be working in Ren'py, and the game will mostly be slice-of-life comedy and light romance.

>what did you accomplish in the last thread?
- Progress on script and new demo 9see below).
- New drawfag who refined his sketches into final base illustrations (pics related).
- More detail on final day and endings.
- Got a gitgud repo set up to prevent bottlenecks/make saving progress easier.
Our progress is pretty glacial, but we're still making progress.  We may also be getting a new codefag, since the current one doesn't have a lot of free time.  As always, anyone is welcome to contribute.

The most recent demo is for day 3: https://files.catbox.moe/zlm5fa.zip - there's also a Linux version: https://files.catbox.moe/c5cg72.bz2

A programmer can make a videogame, but a function alone doesn't sell. For as long as videogames have been marketed there's been a concious effort to make them visually stand out, either promotionally or in-game, so long as the engine could handle it.
Dump artwork, promotional renders, adverts, posters, sprites, even in-game screenshots if you're pushing it; whatever you deem made the game cool. With every game trying to find their own visual niche and themselves being a little time capsule for their technology and the zeitgeist of their devs, there should be plenty to cover.

For instance I've always liked the uncanny look of early 3D renders, and believe the technology lost its edge when CGI got standardized and overdeveloped. On traditional artwork, Roger Dean's cover art on Psygnosis games is fantastic. Don't know how they managed to land the job on him but I'm glad they did. A master of the canvas, disingenuous cover art aside.
DOOM
Other retroFPS and retro inspired FPS can come too. 

I'm legitimately surprised there is no Doom thread on the catalog, lets rectify that, shall we? 
Post some DOOM.
Post some WADS.
Post some of its COPYCATS.
Post some other retro FPS like DUKE. I need to check up on the DNF restoration project
Post some new takes on an old formula like DUSK and all that jazz.
Post about the communities because GOSSIP is also fun. 
Are you Mappin? Post that TOO
If you can map, offer assistance to young mappers, or make fun of their lack of skill. I'm not your dad

I myself have started to get back into Doom and have been skimming the Cacowards for some gold. I also need to beat Ashes 2063 so I can start on its second game, Through the Ashes. There was also the release of Reelism 2 a little while back which I have mixed feelings on, still worth playing though. I've also always considered making a list of gameplay mods and wads that complement each other well such as Rampancy with Highway Acceleroid Booster for muh robot theme. Lastly I like to just slam random on Doomworld and see what comes up. After this long you know there is some buried treasure just lurking in those archives, or its just fun to see what some random guy made 20+ years ago. 
I have some of the older SoyouwanttoplaysomeDOOM infographics if anyone wants them for posterity or just can't be arsed to find them on the web.

NOW LETS FUCKING DOOM
I'm not talking about among the media and normalfags, I mean on imageboards. It seems like, over the past few years, there's been more and more vocal people trying to defend the current industry with arguments that typically appear like the following:
>These games require more powerful systems
This is one of the most common ones I see. Typically in regards to the Switch but it's more than just that. Over the past console generation, companies have been releasing almost entirely their back catalog of titles dating all the way back to the 1980's. While this isn't entirely "new", what IS "new" is how companies are increasingly treating these releases like they're big blockbuster productions. For some reason, compilations like the MM Battle Network and the MGS collection are treated just as big as a singular Mega Man or Metal Gear game used to (If not, bigger). And this is if they're not outright remaking the game, but with "modern sensibilities" and cut content (That will be sold as DLC) like what happened with Persona 3 Reloaded and REm4ke. And seeing the fact and overwhelming amount of these games date from the fifth and sixth gen (Now moving onto the seventh gen with Dead Spoace and TLoU), the question quickly becomes why do ANY of these games require the latest systems when we're playing the same games from 20 years ago?

Better graphics? Games from as far back as 2007 look fine and still look fine. Better gameplay? They're lowering the skill level and difficulty required to play games in order to be "accessible" to "new players" (IOW people who never play games and never will play games) and any and ALL complaints made about means you’re justing being an “elitist” or liking “dated gameplay”. Better technology? They're doing the same shit people were already doing for the past 30 years, except now it requires 10x the amount of power to do it and often implement it in such a shitty way that it might as well not be there.

What is the point of a new console when nothing has progressed, and even companies are admitting (By their own actions) that games from 20 years ago looked and played better than games of today?

>Why are you making a big deal about the games being pozzed/censored?
Because that tells me that the games are being made by political activists who want to shove their agenda down my throat. And I cannot ignore these guys when they have friends in or ARE the very media and companies who promote and release video games. This isn't comparable to the typical "Cigar chomping executive" who's one and only concern is if they'll make a profit. What these people care about is forcing their political opinion onto each and every person across the globe (They'll never be satisfied with controlling only their own little corner of the market) no matter the cost. And will do everything within their power in order to ensure people who disagree with them are never heard from. Even if, you somehow go behind their back and become successful without any of their input, these people have made it abundantly clear that they will make it their life's sole purpose from that point forward to ruin you and everyone around you for daring to defy them.

Why do you want to support an environment like that?

>I don't care if the game is pozzed or made by political activists, I only care if the game is good.
Ignoring the points of the previous paragraph, why are you supporting these people who make it clear that they hate your very existence? In literally every other context, for example you have a guy selling something but he constantly exposes how he'll "Mow down niggers" the first chance he gets, you would never give that person money. So why is it different the moment it comes to entertainment? There is no separating an "artist" from their "work" when said artist uses the profit made from that work to literally change the environment everyone else operates in to benefit them and only people that think like them. Much more, it's become abundantly apparent who's effecting the world and what agenda they're trying to push, but you think that somehow benefiting that game that only pushes a "fraction" is going to result in things change course. No it won't. All it does is makes them become more bold in their actions as they "salami slice" their way to controlling everything and the ground around you crumbles from a lack of foundation.

So why are you benefiting these people instead of playing games that DON'T have any of this political activism thrown in?
I would've loved being a part of a 90s small videogame dev team.
I guess it's technically still possible now but it's much harder to find a group of like-minded people and most projects just happen through discuck nowadays.
I like the idea of getting with a handful of cool guys and work on a cool game in an office filled with snacks and arcades (no girls or fagshit allowed).
How about you? Is this your ideal scenario if you became a gamedev?

HEY, SHIT FOR BRAINS
Check this game out. It looks like Klonoa/Mischief Makers but it's a Goemon game. In fact the PS1 has a ton of Goemon games that never left nippon. This one just got translated though.
I really like the style of PS1 games. I feel, though, that I haven't dived deep in the library as much as the N64 one. Do you know of any hidden gems that never get talked about?
SPESS....THE FINAL FRONTIER...

You are going to talk about space games or I am going to break your fucking arm. You are going to tell me..
WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING IN SPESS???
Also which aliens would you fuck? 

I'm currently doing a run of Starsector after getting the itch again and this time I'm using R A P E S E C T O R which allows you to engage in a little snuggle struggle with enemy officers...or if you have enough marines anyone at all and maybe even an AI as well. Or you can engage in passionate headpatting and h*ndholding with an officer of your fleet you fancy. The sky's the limit, as long as that limit is rape. You might want to run a portrait replace with this one. I got me a sweet system with two Terran planets and a jump gate so it's time to satbomb the Hegemony until I'm bored or the sector runs out of fuel. 
Now engage with me you plebians and tell me what you are playing.
Games with terrible atmosphere (art direction, music, characters, world building, etc.). I'll start with an obvious one.
Normally, I would find that smoking or drinking alcohol enhances my gaming experience, making me more invested in the gameplay. However, caffeine tends to irritate me, leaving me uninterested in doing anything other than lying down and engaging in mindless activities. What about you, anonymous user? Besides the options mentioned, are there any other substances that you believe can improve the gaming experience while playing video games?
This is just one example, but compare Tropical Freeze to the old Country games. Donkey Kong didn't make annoying noises every time he jumped. Enemies made a noise when they died, but only to confirm that you actually hit/killed them. It's probably a small thing to get upset about, but there are so many sounds in games that serve no purpose at all. It's the same with voice acting. Not every line needs to be voiced. In general, voice acting just seems excessive and just drives up the production costs. It's almost as if people are scared of silence and constantly need some kind of noise in the background (besides non-stop music).
The Silent Hill games get it right, but what else is there? Can you think of any games with genuinely good sound design?
Thread to talk about whatever you are playing at the moment, last thread reached bump limit.

It's been a while since I last played with my Vita, so I decided to play Uncharted Golden Abyss with it, I'm not a fan of the series, but I wanted to take a break from turn-based stuff.

In 2023 I only finished two games, I want to at least finish a game every single month, I miss playing vidya instead of browsing tiktok and social media every single day when I'm not working so I challenged myself to at least finish 12 video games in 2024.
Gentlemen, its time for dance threda.

>RTS Games
Memorize build order, out-gookclick the oponent, best case scenario you get a map editor and a campaign, most of the latter RTS games released don´t have map editor at all, and no campaign either or its a tutorial meant to get you to play multiplayer instead
>4X Games
same shit, but its turnbased, if you attempt to take things at your own pace or just try to do your own thing (AKA:Not using the forum meta strategy) the AI that has perfect knowledge of the game will steamroll you, this is the case in MOO, Distant Worlds, Space Empires, you name it, the only exception i´ve seen to this is Civ V, and i´d wager its because in that game you can´t deathstack and the AI is "bad" according to people
>Grand Strategy games (or actually just paradox games because the only two other Grand Strategy games aside from them are Knights of Honor and Making History, with post-Shogun2 Creative Assembly being its homosexual twin)
mostly overlap with 4x, but they are over-complicated on top of that, an example of this is how Hoi3 had the OOB system that ended up being a hassle to learn, and then once you learnt it you realized that just leaving it on AI control is the most optimal unless you are doing barbarossa or island hopping, wich is the worst of both worlds, having to learn a lot about one thing to not use it at all, its asinine design, also how you have laws and policies on Hoi3 except all of them are useless except the 3 meta ones that you will spend the game trying to accomplish the requirements for them, same shit with stuff like CK2´s succession laws, has anyone ever used Gavelkind? no, its shit and has no purpose but the game forces you to use it untill you complete the requirements for it, i could go on forever really, Hoi4 naval combat where all the positioning and soft attack and hard faggot stats, just so you end up building roach cruisers because its the meta thing and will obliterate everything else, wich is an issue that has been there ever since Hoi2 with the zerg destroyer meme

literally anti-emergent gameplay game design, where you have the 3 designed meta routes, and if you deviate from it the game will force you to lose, and if the game has copious RNG like NU-Xcum because the devs were lazy, not even that, because then one of your pre-defined routes to victory will have a chance to fuck up anyways, prettymuch every single fucking Strategy game does this

the only few Strategy games that i´ve genuinely had fun with are shit like picrelated (Combat Mission 2) or PTO2 (if it didn´t have a Anally retentive UI for the SNES), Westnoth etc... wich are more like "sandbox" games than real strategy games, the game just gives you a bunch of army lists for World War II armies, lets you make your own, use an existing or randomly generate a map and just fuck shit up, and in the case of PTO2 and Westnoth it lets you sit back and put a CPU vs CPU autismfest

Hisoutensoku is an expansion to Touhou 10.5 SWR and is a multiplayer fighting game made by Tasofro with ZUN's approval. It's easy to learn, hard to master battle system makes for fun and fast paced matches with counterhits often launching girls across the screen. Very fast when played right. As a P2P game, game hosts must forward ports in order to play it or use specific workarounds.

Get soku, then extract contents of swrs toys (modpack archive) directly into the same folder. 

To host, a hosting player forwards a port (detailed instructions are available on the internet) and provides IP with a port in an IP:Port format, launches the game and uses the Vs Network menu to start the server. Client connects to provided IP and port and plays game. For hosts, please be sure to check the options menu to set a port and disable the "post to bot" checkmark if you don't want random people from the lobby to join instead of people in the thread. If no one's joining in the thread, playing people from the lobby can be a good idea to practice!

Should a port be unable to be forwarded, workarounds exist - Autopunch is installed in a modpack and is used automatically in case of un-forwarded ports. Keep in mind that it can fail on some routers and workplace connections and that ping will likely be less desirable, so please forward your ports.

What happened to all of the rhythm games that were present during the Aughts? It seemed like we had everything from Guitar Hero and DDR and Rhythm Heaven to now where the only thing still coming out is just...Just Dance, I think? Where did everything go?
Is anyone else having problems with Invidious? I've tried six or so instances today, and none of them can load shit.
There have been a lot of "mascot platformers" in recent years - that is, 3D platformers reminiscent of the 5th and 6th console generations. Many of them are just the usual indie games circling the drain and not doing anything new, but there are occasional beams of light that pierce through the veil. Penny's Big Breakaway is one such game.

It launched last month on PC and Switch (and I guess PS or something?). I decided to buy it since it seemed to be promising and the developers were the team behind Sonic Mania, which I had heard good things about. Overall, it's very good aside from the bugs. Lots of fun, versatile movement tricks you can use and the stages strike a nice balance between encouraging you to explore and rewarding you for going fast. The price is a bit steep for an indie game at $30 USD, but given the studio's pedigree and the promise this game shows, I am willing to support it.

Mechanically, you have the standard 3D platformer stuff like jumping, double jumping, airdashing, and sliding around. PBB's unique gimmick is that you use a yo-yo in conjunction with Penny, so your air motions are a series of yo-yo tricks like swinging from it, throwing it out and zipping towards it, and hooking over ledges with it. It sounds like a pretty standard twist on 3D movement, but depending on how you combine the actions and how fast you're moving, you can generate incredible amounts of speed. Gaining momentum and maintaining it is important to moving fast, and you need to pay attention to your environment to chain speed boosts together through a level.

The gameplay kind of speaks for itself. It's exactly as fun as it looks, although it does take some getting used to. Using the advanced controls with both analog sticks and two shoulder buttons to control Penny and the yo-yo is the better way to play.

The music and visuals are great too. The devs made their own engine for this game and there are a lot of cool shading and lighting effects, especially on metallic surfaces like the coins. The game takes a lot of stylistic inspiration from Bauhaus art, but unlike the soulless flat corporate art style that has infected all forms of visual media in the last decade or so, PBB actually uses colors and other details to fill in the environments. The original goal of the Bauhaus art movement was to strip things down to their most basic elements and do away with overmuch ornamentation, and you can see that through PBB in everything from Penny's clothing to the designs of the people in every level.

I was worried at first about there not being enough depth in the environments due to the visual style, and I can now say that is mostly not a problem due to the game's very good camera system. Most environments are viewed from a very rigid 3/4ths view, straight on, or in profile - you are very rarely going to make mistakes due to the position of the camera making it hard to see where you're standing or jumping. I haven't seen a camera system this thoughtful since Super Mario Galaxy, which is really incredible.
A few months ago, I played through and finished the game Epic Mickey on the Wii. This had nothing to do with the recently announced remaster of the game in case you're asking. I wasn't too impressed with the game (Simplistic gameplay, lacking story, gimmicks done better elsewhere), but the part that really drew my attention was how the game portrayed characters like Mickey Mouse, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, and Walt Disney (Though only referentially). I found myself perplexed by the game's intention, and it resulted in my spending the time since starting and long after having finished the game wanting to make a video essay ridiculing the game's narrative and the history behind it. The short is that, from all the information that I have dug up, the Oswald acquisition in 2006 was nothing more than Bob Iger trying to get on the good side of all the Disney shareholders and leaders in the company to sharply contrast him to Michael Eisner, who was leaving the company shamed and humiliated at the time.

However, tonight, I get the impression that doing such a video does absolutely nothing except inflate my own ego by piling another bundle of criticism onto a guy who everyone in the media already hates (And with good reason, mind you). In addition to that, I just realized that my own researching the history of these characters actually made me more interested in watching classic cartoons. Looking up the histories of Walt's earliest works, it lead me to look up characters and series (Such as Mutt & Jeff, Felix the Cat, Dinkle Doodle) who's material I'm now very interested in watching sometime.

Jumping off of that, I'm wondering if anyone else has done the same thing, or something similar, with video games. As much as people bemoan the modern state the industry, it feels like there's very little talk or interest regarding (Good) games that came out before. And the talk that does exist solely surrounds the announcements of new entries in legacy series, or the remake/remaster/rerelease of something from decades prior.

What do you guys think?
Congrats! You just won a zillion dollars!
In your infinite wisdom, you use this never-ending budget to make the gaming room of your dreams.
How do you go about it?
Me personally I would try to recreate as faithfully as possible a gaming basement you would find in the early 2000s. 
6th gen consoles attached to a big-ass CRT. I'd get some of my favorite arcade cabinets like Time Crisis, Galaga, Guitar Hero III and maybe even a japanese import like Taiko no Tatsujin. On the corner I would have a mini LAN party section with multiple WinXP-Win98 PC rigs. I'd have a pool table and a display fridge with fizzy drinks and a giant poster on the wall with all of the Dead or Alive girls on it.
And for post-7th gen games? I'd have a small movie room with a projector to play any modern 16:9 releases.
You all would be invited of course!
None of that gay LED RGB shit with a wall full of consoles I'll never use or "retro art" posters. That kind of shit infuriates me.
>WOT
This is a thread for TACTICAL AND MILSIM GAMES; ArmA, RoN, Hideous Destructor, Ground Branch, Squad, SWAT 4, Project Reality, etcetera. If people move at realistic speeds by default, die fast, and the gunplay is realistic, it probably belongs here.
>WHY
Most milsim/tactical communities are infested with redditors, halfchanner retards, powertripping niggerfaggots, or all three. A group can be assembled to play ops with people who aren't, and therefore have a experience that is orders of magnitude more FUN.
>HOW
ArmA III is not compatible with Linux out of the box, but can be made compatible through a not-particularly-arduous process; first, try -nolauncher and Proton Experimental, and if that fails, muck around with wrappers and graphics bullshit until things work; will reply with further information once it arrives. If you want to >pay, you're probably going to need Apex, Tanks, and Marksmen for a full ground-side experience, although in effect you're just paying money for adblock.

Hideous Destructor requires a lot of minor changes to become playable and remove all the poz. However, luckily, a .zip file is attached with a multiplayer-compatible base modlist (shamelessly stolen from a friend) that will work out of the box if you arrange it according to the numbers:
https://files.catbox.moe/ee4bb0.zip
Remove "hdest-uniquesounds.pk3" and "insurgencysfx.pk3" for the vanilla-Doom sound experience. Remove the skins file if you're not interested in looking like a Kasrkin. hd-negatory does all the poz removal and tweaking.

Try the following commandline parameters for the host as a base: -host [N] -netmode 0 +teamdamage 0.25 +hd_pof 1 +dmflags 2097152 +dmflags2 268435456 +map RANGE, where [N] is the number of players. The teamdamage parameter is mostly just to prevent bad nades from causing total teamwipes; use changemap commands to switch to the desired map when all players are ready.

RoN is still a fucking mess due to particularly overtuned AI.


Note that I am fucking retarded, and as a result have not memorized every single download link and every single guide for every single tactical game seen in the past, especially Elite Force which was a prior gamenight; thus, if you have links, information, and anything relevant, particularly if you have been hosting or setting up gamenights, please reply with them.
Thread to discuss the most recent happenings related to the SBI fiasco which is currently developing.
A quick rundown for the clueless:
>Sweet Baby Inc. is an outsourcing narrative development studio founded in 2018 by former Ubisoft employees which "consults" on video game narratives during development to "promote" safer working environments and diverse representation within game narratives and studios
>or that's what the watered down kikepedia entry claims
>in reality it's been known for a while that they don't just "consult and promote" but rather demand that devs and studios preach their agenda
>they're among the reasons why more recent video games have body type A and B and all sorts of gay, tranny and woke propaganda
>for years they operated mostly under the radar without anyone knowing about them until just a few months ago anons took notice of them
>all until they held an interview at a press conference where Kim Belair, one of the founders, straight up boasted on record that their MO consists of literal threats and "terrifying" devs to accept the poz
>the lid blew open and normalfags too learned about their existence and practices
>the following backlash translated into a steam group, called Sweet Baby Inc detected, made a month by some BR madmen which aimed to track and warn about games which SBI pozzed, gaining massive exposure
>in perfect kike fashion, SBI attempted to attack and censor said group by reporting them, spamming them and whining about them on Twitter demanding to have them banned
>all of which, EXACTLY like GG many years ago, only resulted in the whole matter reaching even a wider audience getting Streisand effect out the ass and more people jumping on the bandwagon as news outlets pick the story up and various ecelebs throw their takes in
>the steam group grew overnight from 70k  to 210k+ followers but apparently steam support threatened to delete it due to the report spam SBI drones had done
>the owner then wiped ALL discussion and threads except admin messages to avoid deletion
>allegedly even cuckchan is banning and deleting discussion about it on /v/ and trying to move it to /pol/, again, exactly like GG years ago
>SBI shills, trannies and soymen all working overtime to cover everything up and blaming it on raycis gamer nazis
>as it turns out SBI isn't even the only company that's been doing this shit

Fugg, I've been meaning to post my game idea there for some time but never got around finishing it.
Do you have any game ideas yourself? Anything you'd like to share yourself? Don't worry about idea theft, there are any game devs browsing these threads :^).
>last thread's archive: https://web.archive.org/web/20230620223931/https://zzzchan.xyz/v/thread/175461.html

I had an idea for a somewhat linear FPS in a similar vein to Half Life, but instead of an underground facility it'd be set in a large spaceborn installation in a similar vein to SS2 but with more diversified environments: offices, R&D complexes, civilian areas, recreational buildings, military hangars, etc; it's essentially an enclosed space colony drifting in the void.
You start off as a newly hired field engineer set to work on the ship. The first 10 minutes or so will feature the player on a tour around the place, showing him some of the multiple sections in the facility. I haven't thought this out yet, but as you're shown the place something happens then SHTF and the station suddenly is being attacked both by an extraterrestial force and a military organization. As the station goes tits up it's up to you to make your way through and leave in one piece.
The main idea for the game lies within the NPCs you find along the way. Instead of entities that will only follow you along a certain predefined route, like scientists in HL1, you can get to recruit a large cast of characters you can arm, arrange and give orders to, that will follow you through the entire game. Think of it as an improvised commando made by common people that work around the place. Here are some potential party candidates I thought on:
>well-armed security officer who sticks with you from the very beginning of the game; level-headed, trustworthy and a good shot, the game's equivalent to Barney
>mid management bureaucrat in his late 30s with a casual office look and his hair glued back; looks like he came out of American Psycho or a sitcom from the 90s
>absent-minded computer science major working in IT with a constant poker face, the silent guy; think of the Postal Dude with his receding hairline and a strand of hair obscuring his onset hairloss
>biochemistry PhD in his late 40s, in charge of one of the many onboard research facilities distributed amongst the space colossus; think of Dr Pavel albeit less med looking, a pointier chin and a slick haircut styled up
>major staff and chief civil engineer in charge of overlooking the space station, has a prepping background and is found barricaded mid-game, clearly knows how to use a gun; well-meaning and knowledgeable, resembles Wilford Brimley before the diabeetus era
>accomplished enemy commando from the military organization you fight throughout the game, sees no choice other than joining forces with you after being left stranded in a similar scenario to Forget about Freeman; resembles the Remove Kebab dude, might bring some of his men with him
>low-level technician with an immigrant polish background found half-dead/mutating late in-game, only pushes forward on his desire to see his family again; a Mariusz Pudzianowski lookalike without the steroids
>one of the larger, sturdier alien enemies you've fought again you'll find locked in a pod that will obey your commands; think of the summoned shambler from Scourge of Armagon; there'll be two in-game, one that serves the story late in-game, and another one neatly hidden mid-game so the player's allowed to have fun
All of these characters would be managed though a interface laced with a map of the current location. Using this map you'd be able to split the party, create strategies, set objectives and adjust each character's friendly behaviour. On top of the usual commands, there'd be a few interesting options, such as the ability to record your character's movement through a certain section and have the NPC play those moves back. This would be useful, for instance, in a platforming section, so that said allies won't die a retarded death because of garbage bot behavior.
I've been thinking whether the player should be able to recruit women he'd find alongside the station. I've pondered long and come to the conclusion that, in a disaster scenario where every man is off to himself, women would not thrive at all and be amongst the first casualties. Besides, if you were to recruit women in a large, armed group they'd be a liability more than anything, being weaker, being terrible gunmen and overall bringing forth unnecessary drama. Besides, there are multiple, older games that present a male-only cast where this isn't a issue if any, such as Half-Life. In fact, they're very straightforward and enjoyable to come back to.
Settingwise, given current IRL happenings and CY's zeitgeist I'd thought of the space facility having Commiefornian laws which heavily punish gun ownership. As such, many of the weapons featured in the game would be clandestine, amateur DIY weapons, custom weapons that circumvent said laws britbongistan-style, or some of the citadel's equipment that's been tinkered with to be useful weaponwise, lasers for instance. This would be backed by the enemy forces using weapons with draconic protection measures, such as fingerprint locking on the trigger, for instance, though they would become usable later in-game after finding out a way to hijack them.
Lastly, on the gameplay itself, the game would play like your run-of-the-mill FPS, except you'd have plenty more companions beside you. Since shooting single enemies would be trivial with a huge party of fairly non-retarded NPCs, instead of a bunch of corridors the maps would consist of larger, more intricate areas you'd need to approach carefully. Large rooms with plenty of nooks and crannies and options to split your group (an abandoned office complex with many cublicles, for instance); large, open installations filled with places to hide and cover from fire, with multiple objectives to crack them open; or even vertical maps your squad would need to keep an eye out for multiple sources of enemy fire (something like UT's Phobos map, for example). Lastly, there'd be some resource management across all of your party members with a neat little screen where you'd be able to cycle through everyone's inventory. This seems like an issue if any of your party members suddenly run out of ammo in the heat of a shootout.
To speed up the gameplay loop I was thinking the game would benefit from shooting action similar to older FPS games: instantaneous weapon switching, minimal animations, fast/no reloads, etc. I doubt extremely fast walking speed would be ideal in what's otherwise a squad shooter, though there would be some advanced movement options to compensate, for instance a superjump akin to HL's.

What do you think, faggots? Do you think any of this would make for a compelling game? Any flaws or aspect of the game that aren't doing it to you? I accept critiques on my game that's absolutely going to release in the next 5 years.
To me it was Street Fighter Alpha, especially Alpha 3.
>Great gameplay
>fun
>God tier OST (At least for Alpha 3, the first two were just okay)
>Great presentation (Alpha 3)
But:
<Shitty art style and character design: Gave start to the ugly "giant hands and feet" character design that sadly got into SF3-4 and 5 as well, Charlie Nash with his dumb Goofy costume and boomerang/banana hair, added schoolgirls to the roster, went way too silly anime compared to previous entries.
<Retarded story changes and retcons: Cammy being Bison's clone, Birdie retroactively turned into a nigger for no reason, later justified it by claiming that in SF1 he was "pale" because he was sick, Ryu with his "ow the edge!" evil version... 
But i would lie if i said i didn't play the shit out of it, or that i didn't enjoy it, but i still wish it wasn't called Street Fighter and was its own thing instead, like Rival Schools.
Since pic related will no doubt be shit, what's some good games with dinos? 

Dinobreak looked interesting. Is it actually any good, or is it just another cheap Unity made cash-in?
Started to play dragon dogma, having fun as an strider, unlocked all its skill and moved to ranger, when i finish unlocked all its skill, I will move to magic archer. Adventuring with my qt loli mage.
Holy shit the duchess is a fucking slut, I thought she was going to tell me about a conspiracy or something, since I was investigating corruption and stuff.

What are some games that you think were unfairly bashed by critics that you think were great games? ATV 2 Quad Power Racing is a good example in my opinion. It is just so more fun than it's main competitor ATV offroad fury 3 at the time and I have never played a better offroad racing game
The OG xbox doesn't get as much love as its contemporaries.
As much as I love the PS2 and its library I always hated how sensitive it was and the 480i resolution sucks.
The OG xbox still looks great on both CRT and flat-screen TVs by having up to 720p and 1080p res.
Not only that but it has some of the best versions of multi-plats, usually having the 60fps versions.
Also the shape of the console and controller is peak comfy.
To celebrate finally fixing my ports I've decided to host a modded terraria server. The server will be going up Friday sometime after 5pm PST.
>Can I suggest mods?
Sure, but I'm not adding any mods after I've generated the world. So if you have a suggestion make it before 5pm Friday PST. Also I'm not adding mods that conflict with what I already have. 
>Is this going to be extremely difficult like a few of the other servers?
There's a few boss rework mods that will make them harder, but it should be reasonably manageable for a new player with how it seems to ramp up from my testing. Just don't go trying to kill the eye without at least plat gear. Also the server will be on master mode because the reworks have a few attacks locked to it.
>Why the fuck do you not have boss checklist in this?
Boss checklist is a horribly coded mod that tanks your performance. It's also client side as far as I'm aware, so feel free to add it yourself.
>I don't own terraria

Do they not know I don't have 15 hours to beat them in one go?
Fuck them. I'm not redoing 5 hours worth of gameplay just because 1 fuck up.
And to those games where you can just press continue anyways. Why do they care?
I'm saving as many times I want, whenever I want. Doesn't matter If I saved 5 minutes earlier I don't care.
i.e. In 3 days.
Will it be good?
Probably not.
ITT we quote games and others guess where the quotes came from. I'll start:
Agents of the liar he will not escape!
I'm traveling around with my Windows XP laptop and I need some gaems.
So far I have Half-Life, Opposing Force, SWAT 4. Aoe II, Stalker, Postal 2, Land of the Dead and the such.
Any old PC games, perhaps not so well known, that you recommend?
I've mostly seen this argument thrown out there when it comes to tank controls in survival horror games, about how it's a "dated" design concept, but actually going back and playing vidya from 1995-2005 shows that tank controls were actually widely used an accepted control scheme across all "action" games. Granted, it's a bit more "unruly" than the modern adaption of dual analog controls, but every game I've played that uses the "tank controls" scheme seems to play fine and is still well designed. This brings forward the further question of what is it that actually makes gameplay design "dated" in it's concept. Is it just the fact that people are so "used" to a specific style of gameplay and cannot wrap their head around the fact that not every game plays the same? Or is it some elitist mindset that "certain" gameplay styles must all be played in a specific way and any deviation from that is essentially heresy or "Doesn't belong"? Or is it something else that I'm missing entirely?
Well the trailer is out, along with the planned release year and it's not looking too promising. Who knows though, maybe it'll be fun, /v/ complained about having to play as a nigger back with SA but the game turned out to be quite good. With that said the sheer amount of niggers and degeneracy is flat out revolting, they even put  a fucking fat nigger twerking at some point and all the women are either niggers or ugly. Is Miami really like this at all? I hate niggers. Rockstar is done.
I'm not specifically talking about individual series, rather lone games that got ruined by shitty updates or developer neglect. For me, TF2 is probably the best example of a once great game left to die. Volvo and friends are less concerned with rebalancing weapons and fixing the bot problem, and more concerned with sitting on their asses and doing fuck all about it. The moment they gave the game to the "community" is the moment it well and truly died in my eyes. Shitty hats, shitty maps, hidden political messages, I can't fucking take it anymore.

<WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS?
I got suckered into making this thread for some *nglo who wanted to make a gamenight, so he cracked some fotm garbage, loaded it up with mods and here we are. For the actual game, I quote from what he said:
>IMAGINE SCP: CONTAINMENT BREACH BUT INSTEAD OF ESCAPING THE HORRORS YOU ARE AVOIDING AND OR SHOVELLING THE HORRORS ON THIS SHITHOLE TO MAKE MONEY FOR YOUR CORPORATE OVERLORDS.
<WHY THE FUCK DO I WANT TO WAGE AWAY IN SOME SHITTY UNITY GAME?
>BECAUSE SAID MONSTROSITIES MAKE THE GAME FUN.
Also he happened to mod it to be able to handle 32 players instead of just 4 AND have DECTalk text-to-speech so you can aeiou shitpost in space.

<HOW THE FUCK DO I INSTALL IT?
Unpack this:
https://pixeldrain.com/u/vf1TefEu
This should be prepackaged with the 32 player mod out of the gate. However, to have TTS shitposting, you'll also need AEIOUCompany
https://thunderstore.io/c/lethal-company/p/Bibendi/AEIOUCompany/
Simply unpack the folder in "...lethal company\BepInEx\plugins" and it should just werk.
Optionally you can download this mod manager to handle mods:
https://github.com/ebkr/r2modmanPlus/releases/tag/v3.1.45
This code is a preset for r2modman for Lethal Company: 
018c19ae-d63f-246a-3f5c-22f10d25f8e8

Sadly, and I quote:
>I WILL NOTE THE GAME FUNCTIONS OFF OF STEAM'S SERVERS PER THE CRACK, SO MAKE A BURNER IF YOU'RE UP FOR IT.
So you will need a steam account for the multiplayer to work, preferably a private one. However the crack should basically function off of Spacewar's servers and therefore be completely fine with steam's systems. HOPEFULLY it won't end in a VACban or else there will be bloodshed. Don't be dumb and risk your main account if you have one already.

>WHEN
Friday to Sunday, around "5pm GMT". Do note that me, the OP, will probably be too busy to play but the *nglo will likely be hosting. He said and I quote;
>LOOK FOR THE ZEES, THE ZEDS, IF YOU WILL.
In any case, you can also try hosting yourself and arrange a lobby on your own. I don't care. Just go and have fun.

Oh and before you ask.  "/" is the key to chat. You can press 1 through 9 to do gestures such as dancing, pointing or other shit. He also said something about a boombox or something that lets you upload songs to play in-game through jewtube. I have no idea how it works at all. Figure things out on your own.
At long last, its time for some real autism and grindan. The return of Wurm is here, and this time, we'll be exploring the lost lands of Brorrowind! We're glad to announce that the stress test for this years server will be Dec 29th at 7pm cst. The census and excise office of Seyda Neen will officially open for business shortly afterwards (Jan 5th is the current plan, subject to general feedback. keep an eye on the thread and the website: https://wurmbadmin.wixsite.com/brorrowind)

>What is Wurm Unlimited?
Wurm is an mmo from 2006 that focuses on sandbox elements. Instead of just killing goblins for exp, its a fully terraformable world. Build a comfy cottage or a massive castle. Have a small herb garden or sprawling wheat fields. Master a craft or mine deep into the earth. Go fishing, breed horses, brew potions, even make your own cheese.

>What is Brorrowind
Every 6 months anons get together and host our own Wurm server. This time we're taking the heightmap from Morrowind and slapping it into the server. Build your own Balmora, visit Red Mountain with friends, and enjoy events like the farmers festival in Vivec. We've even got custom items and weapons this time, including craftable Daedric weapons.

>Ok sounds cool, how do I join?
Get a copy from steam, a steam key from someplace cheap, or find yourself the yarhar friendly version thats floating around (I'm sure someone with better opsec than me will post a link). Once you have a client, click connect by IP and use the settings provided later in the thread as launch date approaches (will also be available on the website)

>But how do I actually play Wurm?
Wurm does have a slight learning curve to it, but if you can read you can figure it out. I've got info for both the server and how to play on our site here: https://wurmbadmin.wixsite.com/brorrowind/new-to-wurm

>General Settings
We're keeping most of the settings from last time:
>Everyone in freedom kingdom(all gods enabled) with full pvp enabled(set up a deed and kill the n'wahs next door)
>No champions
>Runes of recall craftable but requiring 85ql to use
>No prayer limit, no priest restrictions, interfaith linking
>Alchemy enabled and buffed for 30 minute duration potions
>Treasure maps enabled and slightly easier to aquire
>Bounty mod is fixed based on initial tests. Once again get money sent directly to your bank for genociding the wildlife.
>full properties list will be up on the website

>New Features
We've got custom items to assist you on your travels this time. Daedric weapons of all flavors are available, as is a fun new reward you might find from treasure maps: Shards of Lorkhan. Anyone that can absorb a fraction of this power will find ALL of their body characteristics enhanced. We're still in the process of adding items/features, and I'll post the updates as they come.

>Feedback Needed
One of the things I'd like to discuss is the launch date. I'd like to stick to Jan 5th, but I know not everyone is a neet and might need a bigger notice in advance to set aside time. I'd like to make a final decision on this asap, so any concerns need to be aired now. 
Another thing is reducing the player CR multiplier from 3x to 1.5x. This will still keep you stronger than base values, but won't trivialize fights against trolls.
Finally, we'd like some feedback on daedric/custom weapons and armor. Right now, the stats and crafting difficulty function as only a cosmetic change from their iron counterparts. Would you prefer cosmetic only weapon/armors, or stat increases with comparable crafting requirements? Adding craftable artifact weapons (from MORROWIND, not the in game/original Wurm artifacts) is also an option.

CURRENT TASKS:
1. OPERATION MAX REVIVE
Rebuild the board's userbase and activity through simple, but effective methods
1. Post across the entire board
Activity creates activity. Use threads you like, make new ones if topics don't exist.  Easy examples are Drawthreads and Friday Night threads, go request or draw something right now.
2. Recruit and recover lost or potential anons
Use this site's OC and features to entice anons if necessary when recruiting, just inform that we are alive.
Here's some sites and links with at least some confirmed anons that can be recruited again:

Just searching up GG or 8chan-related terms on certain places/sites can get you possible results.
3. Make your own OC/Memes/Content
Doesn't matter what it is even if its just simple edits or full-on drawings or webms, just make it and have fun. Ask in thread for software recs if necessary.
4. Encourage or create fun events, activities, projects, etc.
Think things like 8chanmania, weekly streams, re-translation projects, demo days, or zzz's gaming magazine for example. If you want to do something, try making or reviving it, it can't hurt and these things are great for the board.
5. Use other boards
All it takes for a board to grow is at least 2 dedicated anons using it. Don't be afraid to make a post, check places periodically, shill, or what have you. Don't force discussions to boards, just encourage the usage of them. 

2. OPERATION TRAJAN:
Collect and catalog all of the various localization and censorship accounts of past video games into a single repository from these sources:

I think its sad how discord has really trumped multiplayer games in its current day and age. Fps games for example, you would talk in voice chat and trash talk and stuff like that. Now its all discord or voice chat group. Its just so inorganic and you dont really have any meaningful interactions with others anymore. I feel like its also difficult finding a game to play. Are you playing any multiplayer games? Is it any good?
Im currently playing a "clone" of phantom forces (roblox) thats called battlebit. Its meh. Downsides to it is that its incredibly rulecucked that you will get temp bans for pretty much anything. Also they plan on adding faceit anticheat which is very intrusive. I like shooting heads with my sniper but i dont like the maps and i insta disconnect on the ultra shitty maps.
Theres also a tf2 server i found that was made by people from cuckchan. Its called "kogasatopia". Its basically a "no rules" server. I think the only rule is that you will get banned for being a tranny or "lgbt" or whatever the fuck that is.
I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but what happened to all of the games that used to be clones of popular games? Today, it seems like the only "clones" that exists is the vidya trying to copy From's Souls format. The reason I bring this up is because, looking back at older games that were copying other titles, you got some seriously weird games.
<For example, in the wake of Crazy Taxi, Namco came out Smashing Drive.
I bring this game up because I only knew of it due to the arcade machine located at the Red Robin I visited as a kid, but never seen anyone ever talk about. While it's "like" Crazy Taxi in concept, the game is actually closer to like a cross between San Francisco Rush and Burnout. Like I said it's a weird game.

Anyone else know of some clones, copycats, or imitators that came out and are worth mentioning?
