READ THE RULES


The rules have been relocated to the Rules Page

This thread solely exists to remind you that you are a dork.
Why is literally every JRPG set in medieval europe with knights and castles and dragons and bullshit.

What are some non-fantasy JRPGs?
So far I have:
FF7 and 8 - sci-fi settings
Xenosaga - sci fi
Phantasy Star - sci fi
Nier Automata - post-apocalypse future (more action than RPG)
Shadow Hearts - 20th century europe
Valkyria Chronicles - 20th century europe (more tactics than RPG)
...?

Special shout out to Star Ocean
>start out in a space ship
>this is going to be totally different to all the other JRPGs
>10 minutes later
>crash land on primitive planet
>oh no by some weird coincidence it's literally medieval europe
>lets see what's in that castle over there
MY FUCKING GOD

Also disappointed to find out Nier Automata has 20 prequels and they are all dragons and knights bullshit. Thanks for that.
Meta Plans to Take Nearly 50% of Creator’s Earnings in ‘Horizon Worlds’
https://archive.is/bgrkP
>Speaking to Road to VR about the new selling tools being made available to select creators in Horizon Worlds, Meta explained that anything sold in Horizon Worlds would be subject to the same 30% fee the company charges developers selling apps through its VR platform and then an additional 25% fee on top of the remaining amount. The company provided the following example:
>“…if a creator sells an item for $1.00, then the Meta Quest Store fee would be $0.30 and the Horizon Platform fee would be $0.17, leaving $0.53 for the Creator before any applicable taxes.”

Epic announces $2 billion in funding for its metaverse efforts
https://archive.is/VUaEZ
>Epic’s plans to build a metaverse just got a huge cash injection: today the Fortnite developer announced a $2 billion round of funding, which it says will be used “to advance the company’s vision to build the metaverse and support its continued growth.”
>The funds come from Sony, which has previously invested in Epic, and KIRKBI, an investment group operated by the Kirk Kristiansen family, which founded the Lego Group. Just last week, Epic and Lego announced a partnership to build a family-friendly take on the metaverse, though with little in the way of concrete detail. According to a press release, both Sony and KIRKBI invested $1 billion as part of the most recent funding round.

I've been playing a lot of Master Duel recently, and I've been enjoying it quite a lot. I managed to make around 9 decks, most of them are barely functional which has kept my duels unique. What decks are you using, and what's your best game so far?
Lineage 2

We have successfully infiltrated Gludio, and we have taken up guard positions as our first step of infiltrating the society of Lineage 2 Reborn, where we will get a full scope of the local crime and find recruits to our cause.  

Clan Big Guys is here For You.  New players are welcome.  Newbie buffs end at lvl 25, but Clan Hall buffs keep giving.  They're C-grade buffs and should help get you caught up to us with very limited pain compared to usual.

For some background information, Lineage 2 is an MMO with open-world PvP (base game was released at around 2004) that was widely considered to be an Eastern equivalent of WoW - so much that even today, it retains it's popularity. We are playing on a server with an Interlude expansion (widely considered to be the best due to balancing issues) at x1 rates, which is a way to say that EXP/money gain is 1:1 from the original release.
While at a glance, it may look like yet another Korean grinder, the endgame includes massive wars for the right to kill Epic Raid Bosses or own castles - limited entry zones exclusive to player clans (guilds). Couple that with open-world PvP and it's not difficult to see that Lineage 2 offers an almost unique experience of participating in the equivalent of Mexican Gang Wars without taking the Lead Pill subdermally and generously donating your organs to the cartel.

What's this all about?
Fullderp is a game where one of us declares himself the champ and takes a ragtag team of six Pokémon assembled by anons into an online competitive Pokémon battling 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 champ calls "new champ", the first anon to claim the title is our champ. He uses the first six legal Pokémon suggested after his claim as his team. Champ can also call "new team" when the old one became stale (rule of thumb: 40-60 minutes). Champ plays in National Dex unless specified otherwise.
Absolutely no experience is necessary and everything is done in-browser.

Rules
1. Champ can't forfeit, intentionally throw a match, or timer stall.
2. Champ may not edit a set without the suggester's permission.
3. All Pokémon must be nicknamed. If the sugg didn't have a name, champ makes one up.
4. Don't suggest twice, unless your last sugg was 15 minutes ago or champ explicitly asked for resuggs.
5. Champ should replace resuggs with fresh suggestions that come in later.
6. Don't spam the catalog with threads.

This one snuck up on me and I figured I'd make a thread and summarize it for anyone who cared.
https://yewtu.be/watch?v=EhDFA_O7zNg

Games Sorry, that's "The Games" because Nintendo's translators have been acting like retards recently and every time someone refers to a game, he says "The ____ Game" like a mong.
>Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes
Musou/Dynasty Warriors game set in the world of FE 3 Houses.
>Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp
Remake of the first 2 Advance Wars games with nu-graphics that somehow look worse than GBA sprites, and voice acting.  I took a screenshot of this one because I think it looks incredibly jarring to see cutesy 2D animation, simple 3D models, and detailed 3D battle backgrounds in the same image.  I imagine it'll look more jarring on a big television.  It'll have a map maker that will presumably let you draw swastikas and porn, so I guess it won't be all bad.
>No Man's Sky
Yes, fucking really.  I didn't realize Nintendo was this desperate.  The buttermilk lens filter and bad 3D models look even even more tacky on the Switch's hardware.
>MARIO STRIKERS BATTLE LEAGUE
It's a new Super Mario Strikers, complete with the gratuitous violence and electric fences and they let Peach wear short shorts.  Has a gear system that lets you customize your stats, and teams are 4v4.  The online modes have clans/clubs, with a limit of 20 players for some reason.
>Splatoon 3 footage
We already knew about this, but they had some footage for you to pore over which showcased the new enemies in Salmon Run (hode defense mode).
>Front Mission 1st
"Full remake" of Front Mission 1, with a remake of Front Mission 2 to follow sometime.  Sure to disappoint.  A mecha head will need to provide more info on this since I've never played the Front Mission games.
>Disney Speedstorm
Disney kart racer with a freemium model.  Looks pretty slow, even compared to something like 150cc/200cc in Mario Kart 8.  New seasons of content will come later.
>Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (Wii port)
<you lived long enough to see Starkiller brought back as a nostalgia grab on a Nintendo console
>Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Trilogy
<you lived long enough to see Ezio Auditore brought back as a nostalgia grab on a Nintendo console
>SD Gundam Battle Alliance
SD meaning "super-deformed" or chibi.  Some kind of crossover Gundam game.
>Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition
"Remaster" of Chrono Cross, which apparently people wanted?  All I know about Chrono Cross is that it's some kind of weird sequel/spin-off to Chrono Trigger and apparently has no respect for the lore.  At least the graphics aren't being pozzed or remade.  New features include disabling enemy encounters (the characters are shown sliding past a giant enemy crab), an "enhanced" soundtrack, and the Radical Dreamers choose-your-own-adventure VN originally released only on the Satellaview, which was apparently a satellite modem peripheral for the Super Famicom.
>Kirby And The Forgotten Land AKA Kirby eats an entire fucking car
Kirby explores a blasted post-apocalyptic landscape full of viciuos aminal createurs and he recsues teh waddle deez who r kul an help kriby wen he savs them an dey mak hiz copy abililitezz evn MOAR pwrful to KILL THE BAEST PACK who r not nice
The leopard boss looks cute.
>MLB The Show
I wish I'd saved a spot for a screenshot of this one since it looks terrible with awful anti-aliasing.
>Kingdom Hearts cloud versions
Stream an action-adventure game over the internet on the Switch's wi-fi port.  What could go wrong?
>Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series
What appear to be full remakes of the first two Klonoa games.  The graphical style actually has some colour in it and looks pretty good, but I know better than to get my hopes up.  Looks more like a gen 6 game than a current gen one, which means it has better visuals than anything released in the last decade.
>Portal: Companion Collection
LE CAKE IS A LIE XDDDDD
Portal and Portal 2.  Seems to have some of the online modes of Portal 2, but I don't know how much.
>Live A Live
Some hideous "HD 2D" (Octopath Traveler artstyle vomit) remake of Live A Live.  Seems to have full voice acting, which is appropriate for the jagged visual style.
>Nintendo Switch Sports
Nice try, Ninty, but you're never going to capture the magic of Wii Sports again.  Strap a joycon to your leg and kick a soccer ball, why not?  Launches with 6 (I think?) sports, and a couple more will be added through patches.  There's an open online beta from the 18th to the 20th.
>Taiko no Tatsujin (Taiko Drum Master): Rhythm Festival
This one has Megalovania as a track so you know it's good.
>Triangle Strategy
Final Fantasy Tactics knockoff with the hideous Octopath Traveler ("HD 2D") art style.  There's a demo available today.
>Cuphead: Delicious Last Course
Releasing June 30th.  Looks like more Cuphead, so it'll probably be really good.
>Metroid Dread
Free update that adds a "dread mode" where every single thing is a 1-hit kill.  Also ass rookie mode that makes healing items more potent.  Releases today.  There's an update coming in April that will add boss rush mode.
>Earthbound and Earthbound Beginnings
That is, Mother and Mother 2 are being added to the Switch's online pass for anyone too stupid to download a ROM.  Mother 3 is still NEVER EVER.

Then there was sizzle reel:
>Zombie Army 4: Dead War (yes, this is actually the title)
>GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon
>Demon Slayer - The Hinokami Chronicles
>Lego Brawls
>Two Point Campus

>Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: Booster Course Pass
You got boosted, right, goy?
Remastered courses from previous Mario Kart games, released 8 at a time in 6 waves "by the end of 2023" (48 in total).  Price is $24.99 USD and does not appear to include any shy gals in thigh-highs.  You're leaving money on the table, Nintendo.
First wave hits March 18th.  If you buy the shitty expansion pack for Nintendo Switch Online, you get this for free (and presumably will lose access to it as soon as you stop paying).
Okay, but seriously, why did they use the terms "booster" and "wave" to describe a Mario Kart DLC plan?  There are other established terms for this type of thing.  Does it have something to do with that video John Hopkins Medical Center posted on Twitter?  I swear this smells fishy.
>Xenoblade Chronicles 3 featuring sad and angry Welsh cat noises
Looks pretty grim and dark and super srs bsns compared to the previous games.  I heard good things about XC2, so presumably this will be at least decent.  Coming September 2022.
You have shit taste edition
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.
We know episode 3 was meant to introduce a showcasing innovation like previous installments. What might that have been? 

By the way, BM: Xen was disappointing. Definitely creative in an aesthetic sense, but hardly built on or increased on previous challenges, with human soldiers proving the real peak challenges. What went weong, and what could have been done better?
Not much to say about Stalker 2 (probably cancelled forever again), so let's talk about the trilogy instead. 
Which game are you playan?
Any mod recommendations? 

I'm currently playing Oblivion Lost Remake 2.5 (+ fixx 53). 
>What's that?
I hope you are aware of the old SoC builds. A lot of content was cut and the retail game was significantly different compared to the alpha builds. There's been some mods claiming to bring back the "original experience" such as Lost Alpha, Oblivion Lost 3.1, Paradise Lost, BTTS and more. 

But all of those mods failed to deliver and introduced too much made-up shit to be called authentic recreations of the original Stalker. 
So a bunch of Russian modders decided to have a go at it and holy shit did they deliver. I introduce to you, Oblivion Lost Remake 2.5

An autistic recreation of every single pre-alpha SoC build. Everything is as it was back then, but stitched up seamlessly together. Very famous among the Slavic community but barely any westerners even heard of it. Which is a shame because it shits all over every other SoC mod.

Pros:
>Superb atmosphere unmatched by any other mod
>OG gunplay vastly superior to retail. Even a PM pistol can 2-3 tap an enemy
>New cut mutants
>Mutants aren't bullet sponges like in almost every other mod. 1 buckshot to the head from close range will bring down even a charging boar
>Drivable and buyable vehicles. You can even repair them, refuel them and store your stuff in the trunk. They have working radio too
>Gravity gun-like artifacts that you can use
>A secret gravity gun you'll have to earn
>Quests do not offer any hand holding. Many don't even give you a PDA marker, you have to memorise information 
>Fairly balanced economy
>New anomalies, many are literally invisible and are extremely difficult to locate by sound. Bolts now serve a useful purpose to help you find them and avoid them 
>Standalone install, no retail game needed

Cons:
>Sun rays option eats up a lot of FPS
>Game engine can't into object culling very well, so you will notice random frame drops when looking at certain directions
>No fast travel
>The psychic mutants are cunts 
>Some content is still missing, but the mod is being worked on. Version 3.0 is expected to be finished "soon"


The moddb page is not updated anymore and I can't speak Russian and I doubt you do either so I won't link the russian forum. So here's a direct link with the latest update & english translation instead https://disk.yandex.com/d/hmvQK9g8JDY_HA.  
Install the game anywhere except for Program Files, obviously. Read the readmes too nigger. Do not skip the configurator part after installing either. 

Some advice: The very first mission you're given is meant to be a noob filter. If you can't complete it after a few tries, you should just delete the game you big baby.

How hard would it be to modify the sprites of a 2D unity game? 
I know decompilation exists, and that sometimes people manage to extract the images from unity games, but I don't think I've ever seen anyone mod new sprites into an unity game.

Guide to a Happy Share Thread

'Leechers'
1. Before requesting, search online and even use distributed search engines (e.g. InfraSearch, Opencola, YaCy, FAROO).
2. Look in CheckBeforePosting, the archives, and volafile.
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 both the share thread and in vola room.
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 characters (e.g. c12fe1c06bba254a9dc9f519b335aa7c1367a88a) with or without dashes, it is a magnet link.
	b. If your bittorrent 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 at least 5 alternative sources and keep a local copy if space permits.
3. Use a URL shortener (spaced or split), base64 encryption, and/or paste relinks (e.g. zerobin.net) on file links to confuse bots.
4. Encrypt your uploads with a password, key, or generator. Rename the files something random, even their checksums. Maybe even pad files to the nearest GB or so to confuse bots.
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.

'Volafile' volafile.org/r/vg
1. Before uploading a batch of miscellaneous files (e.g images and music), be sure they are unique enough to stand on their own and that you ask for the majority's consensus whether to upload the files individually.
2. Upload 5 files and then zip the rest if the dump is larger then 6-7 files. Music Albums exceeding 5 files are to be zipped.
3. When uploading .torrent, either add them to the a zip of the game or just don’t upload those misc files. Properly label files so that they can be identified without asking someone else.
4. For lewd stuff with filenames like RJ74765, either add a .txt linking to the contents on a website or just add the title to the .txt (e.g. "BIG BOOTY WOMEN SIT ON SHOTA FACE (RJ34734)").
5. You can filter files by file type (.txt, .rar, etc) or search the file list with the bar hidden by the filter files button.
	a. When in doubt, archive as a single [or split if too large], then upload.
Even in the sea of indie games, unique looking games are quite the rare sight. Sure, there are a lot of games that don't fall into the generic but the style can come off as caused by incompetency rather than art direction.
The Neverhood and Hylics are two examples that I really enjoy. They are very unique experiences despite their gameplay flaws.
Do you know of any games that stand out stylistically?
What are some of the best levels/maps you've played? Whether it's the physical layout of the map, some crazy shit that goes down on it, the aesthetics, or some other niche part of it that you enjoy without really understanding. You can also post maps you've made for games, like stuff in Source's Hammer, 
I've found the level design in Metroid Prime to be really atmospheric, each area felt unique with the combination of the environments, music, and enemies all tying everything together. Phendrana Drifts really sticks out, and overall I like the design more in 1 than in 2, there was more variety and stuff to look at than just "sad world corrupt by evil".
One of my other favorite levels is the farmhouse shootout in Splinter Cell, it's set up almost like a tower defense where you have to defend a bunch of captured burgers and bugmen from rusia monkes trying to silence them. You have a short time beforehand to set up wall mines and place other traps to stop the slav hordes from coming, as well as two automatic turrets at your disposal that also shoot at you as well so don't stand in front of them.
I used to dick around with Hammer a lot, making maps for Garry's Mod and Team Fortress 2, but I never released any of them simply because I didn't want to release anything that was unfinished nor did I really have the time or motivation to invest into them. I still have most of the VMFs, except for the dam level that I would work on in the back of class that my history teacher called "Escape from Dachau". Good times.
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.
>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: >>17081 (archive: https://archive.fo/9iIJW).

>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.

>you're doomed!
We have two artists, a writer, a fairly simple coding language, and a clear goal.  I think our chances are pretty good, all things considered.

A new types of enemies called Android were shown and a new variant of Ants and spiders were also showen.
EDF3 and EDF4.1 will be released for the Nintendo Switch.
A leak of some Nvidia intel shows that EDF6 might come to PC sonner than most people think.

LASTLY, PLEASE READ THIS
These threads are not meant to be spammed every day like a fucking general.

Anyone attempting to make this thread in a newfag/cuckchan/low effort manner will be met with disdain and mockery.
What's this all about?
Fullderp is a game where one of us declares himself the champ and takes a ragtag team of six Pokémon assembled by anons into an online competitive Pokémon battling 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 champ calls "new champ", the first anon to claim the title is our champ. He uses the first six legal Pokémon suggested after his claim as his team. Champ can also call "new team" when the old one became stale (rule of thumb: 40-60 minutes). Champ plays in National Dex unless specified otherwise.
Absolutely no experience is necessary and everything is done in-browser.

Rules
1. Champ can't forfeit, intentionally throw a match, or timer stall.
2. Champ may not edit a set without the suggester's permission.
3. All Pokémon must be nicknamed. If the sugg didn't have a name, champ makes one up.
4. Don't suggest twice, unless your last sugg was 15 minutes ago or champ explicitly asked for resuggs.
5. Champ should replace resuggs with fresh suggestions that come in later.
6. Don't spam the catalog with threads.

FAQ
>What is this?

Remember: have FUN
It's funny that just when convenience such as larger storage capacity for discs and internet updates came along, videogames got worse.
Cartridges, CDs and early DVDs all had very limited storage. Developers back then had to really get deep into the consoles to try and fit everything they wanted. Games like RR4 and Crash Bandicoot still amaze me how good they look and how they still hold up today. Nowadays you can just drop your unoptimized piece of shit and don't care. Just compare GTA: San Andreas vs GTA IV.
Most games made today could easily fit into the original xbox if optimized well.

Fighting games are hard.  Playing them is suffering, and they let you make other people suffer.  Let's talk about all the hard, punishing stuff we've done, and how angry we've made people

>What's the angriest you've ever made someone?
>Did you ever get into a fight over a match outcome?
>How much do you enjoy grinding stuff in training mode?

News:
>King of Fighters XV
The game is here.  The mechanics are basically XIV with some new paint and features (jukebox, rollback netcode, different EX/MAX mechanics).  Two teams have been announced for DLC: Team Garou (Rock Howard, Gato, B. Jenet) and Team South Town (Geese, Yamazaki, Billy Kane).  Two more teams will come later in the year.  There are also come cosmetic costumes as DLC, like Terry's Garou look or Leona's classic military look.

>Street Fighter V
Capcom has some countdown thing on its website, which people suspect may have to do with SF6 (although SFV does have a final balance patch coming in March).
>Guilty Gear Strive
The most recent patch added the Combo Maker feature, which lets you create and share your own combos within the game (https://yewtu.be/watch?v=WTOyeaZx8T8).  Two more DLC characters are coming as part of the first pass, but we don't know who they are.
>Melty Blood Type Lumina
Two new DLC characters have been added free of charge: Aoko Aozaki and Dead Apostle Noel, an alternate version of regular Noel who was in the launch roster.

Pardon me if I missed anything, but I just wanted to have this up.
HOW DO YOU PLAY THESE FUCKING GAMES??
Gaem tells me to press button, I press button. then game tells me to go fuck myself.
Is game broken?
Have any of you played The World Ends With You? What do you think of it?
Got my hands on Elden Ring and having a blast, 100 hours went on like they were nothing, favorite boss are the Crucible Knights, hope I can get the whole armor soon, so far I only have the shield, the only enemy I actually parry.
Let's talk about our favorite Real Time Strategy/Tactics games
I'm waiting for Starship Troopers Terran Command, I hope the delay was worth it and they fixed game well after the demo.
CoH3 Pre Alpha was also alright, plays more like 1 with some new units

Hey, /v/. I'm playing Aria of Sorrow right now. Is it me or is this one a lot easier than previous entries in the series? Just recently I finished Rondo of Blood and it felt more like a challenge. Not saying the game is bad or anything - it's great, actually - but it just feels easier. Is it because it came out on the GBA and because of that it had to be designed for a broader audience or something?

And one more thing: Has anyone here played Bloodstained? How's that one?
A modding team has released a native PC port of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for PC, Mac and Linux entitled "Ship of Harkinian" (In reference to the king from the CDI games and his ship which sailed in the morning). It's quite good, and already moddable.

It already supports:
>Gyro aim with slingshot, bow and hookshot (Provided you have a compatible controller)
>All resolutions and will properly scale the camera and HUD accordingly
>A nice 3D view of Link on the equipment screen, optionally

Currently in its freshly-released state it only at the moment supports the rom compiled by the Master Quest debug rom decompilation team, which does not in fact use the MQ dungeons but does have the Gamecube buttons.

rom:

Current issues: Need to play in stereo mode or audio will screech til your ears bleed, and if you have issues with framerate or game performing too fast, go to your GPU's control panel and set the process's framerate limit to 30FPS (rather than 20 so the menus can run at a higher framerate), and turn vsync on for the process.

Planned features for this sourceport include:
>Support for all releases of OOT (1.0, 1.1, 1.2, MQ, etcetera.)
>3DS texture and model support
>Online play 
>60+ FPS
and more (See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZNIE5xwjsY )

Also planned is a Mario 64 Render96-style mod which will use artstyle-faithful renditions of models and textures, pics 4 and 5 related, sourced from:https://twitter.com/OcarinaRemake/media

As far as I'm aware. There's no /v/'s recommended racing games chart.
Let's change that.
So far I'm thinking:
>The Burnout series up to Dominator
>Outrun 2006
>The Ridge Racer series
>Midnight Club 3 (Haven't played the rest so you tell me if they are good)
>F-Zero series
>Daytona
>Crazy Taxi
>Lego Racers
>Modnation Racers
<Combat Racing
>Twisted Metal
>Carmaggedon
>Jak X
<Kartz
>CTR
>Mario Kart
>Diddy's Kong Racing
>SRB2Kart
What else?
Have you been playing racing games as of late?
I just played Midnight Club 3. I love this era of racing titles but It always reminds me of how dogshit the OST always is. With some exceptions of couse, like Outrun. I always have to mute the radio and play some vrock.
>FNV quest GI Blues
>have to find out who attacked an ally of the Kings

>all three places are "walking distance" but through very uninteresting areas
>only reason to do the quest is for the easy XP and the King's favor

There's hardly any ground to cover, but it's just so damn tedious. Murder would make it easier and more interesting, but I digress. So what games do you enjoy, but loathe that one part?
How do I post from this thing? Default browser just gets ssl handshake error from outdated https. and using opera mini app in java emulator gets cucked by javascript, so it's read only mode
What sRPGs are you playing anon? What characters you using? What starts are you using? Who your guys killing? Are side based or unit speed based turn systems superior? Is there 'any' game where high speed=more turns where more speed isn't stupidly broken?  How did waifu shit ruin Fire Emblem?
What's the best game you ever played? Just one, no more than that. And how do you sell it to someone you can only talk to for one minute? Don't get autistic about it, tell them why they should play it.

Doom 2
Fast paced, ultra violent shooter with fun to explore maps and great enemy variety. There's unlimited fan made content built around the very core of what makes FPS games fun while being complex enough to use those building blocks to make challenging but fair levels even for veterans.
Say something nice about vidya that you hate.
I'll start:
>Undertale
The music was filled with soul and was a genuine pleasure to listen to. Also, Muffet a qt.
Video games. Niche operating systems. The ultimate combination, if you're an autistic spaz. If you're autistic enough, you could even play Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield 2142 in ReactOS.
Meanwhile I'm a fucking pleb who somehow can't get Half-Life working or to spit out any errors when it silently fails on my new Void Linux install and nvidia's proprietary drivers have shielded me from the harsh, cold reality of editing xorg config files to change my refresh rate.

You lads installed or working with anything interesting lately? Got any problems?

Talk about the RPGs you played, are playing, or plan to play.

Xenoblade 3 has been confirmed for September in the recent Nintendo direct Also some other RPGs are getting remakes/remasters of questionable quality, such as Front Mission, Chrono Cross and Live A Live.

Reminder to ignore bait this time.
Possibly better off dead, but If you could have your way and get a good game. Which sequels would you like to see and expanded in what way?
I'm not sure if EWJ4 is even coming out at this point, but I would like them to try a 3D game again.
I didn't mind EWJ3D. It just needed some polish that a sequel could bring.
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.

OH SHIT ITS TIME FOR A ROGUELIKE THREAD
Go on anon, regal us of your tales of narrow escapes, clever wins, amazing finds, and ultimate victory's. Or just tell us how you died again for the 20th time because you did something stupid. 
So anon, what have you been Playing? Do you have a favorite? Perhaps that one roguelike you just go back to every single time?

ROGUELIKES TO TRY
>Elona: 
Japanese roguelike without permadeath unless you say so and an overworld. Big sandbox with everything you can do such as farming, crafting, ect. Worth a try due to its unique nature and can be played in many different ways. A lot of humor both intended and unintended. Remember, the little girl is the best starting pet. 

>Cataclysm: Dark Days ahead: 
7 day Post apocalyptic roguelike set in the near future where humanity oopsies an extra-dimensional blob entity into our world that rises the dead after dying creating zombies and worse. Has bioincs, mutations, a robust crafting system, and cars. There is mainline and the Bright Nights fork that looks to rollback some of the more questionable changes, these being somewhat unfun in the name of "realism". Play both and make your own opinion but mine is Bright nights as it has an actual endgame. you win by placing a mininuke or yourself in a mainportal at the bottom of the central lab. Good luck getting there. 

>Nethack:
One of the OG's. First released in 1987 its been trucking along ever since. Dive deep to retrieve the amulet of Yendor or die trying, has fun interactions. Be creative. 

>Dungeon Crawl stone soup:
Streamlined, for better or worse. Dive deep to find the Orb of Zot. Once done, you will have to leave with it. I'm sure nothing bad will happen on the trip back up. Has some easy starting classes to cut your teeth on, I enjoyed it but I never really got to far in it. 

>Infra Arcana: AKA I keep screaming but Niggerman doesn't answer. 
Infra Arcana is a Roguelike set in the early 20th century. The goal is to explore the lair of a dreaded cult called The Church of Starry Wisdom. Buried deep beneath their hallowed grounds lies an artefact called The Shining Trapezohedron - a window to all secrets of the universe. Your ultimate goal is to unearth this artefact.
Yes I did copy that from the wiki and I'm  not sorry. Its interesting in that you don't gain exp by killing things, you get it by going down floors and finding Monoliths. Which is good because some enemies can really fuck you up.

>Can I talk about "rogue-lites" like FTL and binding of Issacc?  
Knock yourself out, I have long stopped caring about the actual distinction.  

This is by no means a definitive list and there are tons more to try, including "Mainline" Rougelikes, some fantasy, some realistic, and some stupid. There really is something for everyone, unless you don't like them and are here to call me a faggot. That too is welcome, we tolerate all manner of shit taste here. 
I think I might start on another Elona binge again. I was having some issues getting music working on linux but then I remembered I have an all in one mod with a music replacer. Sure enough, those worked just fine. I'm near the end of the second act on a file that years old at this point. I always come back to elona. I've been dabbling in brightnights again for CDDA and have played Caves of Qud on and off recently too. I kinda find QUD boring after a while, the loot isn't super exciting but playing a psionic character is really fun. So fun that there is an antifun counter built in known as psionic headhunters. But those can be fun too.

Yes, I am rushing this thread so as many of you faggots can download this as possible before Randy Bitchford pulls the plug.
Whether making a 2D or 3D game, there are 3 things you need to get right, that a lot of new games fail at.
>Animation
Even back in the 3rd gen, animations have been a vital. It differentiates an animate being from a boring corpse. It also says all you need to know about a character without saying a word.
Rareware and early Naughty Dog did this pretty perfectly. When making Crash Bandicoot his expressions were top priority.
Nowadays animation is done just to get the job done. It's rare to see a game that communicates through its frames.
>In-game UI
An UI fitting of the game is really important. Sometimes, even no UI is a good fit like in the DKC games.
There's hundred of games I've seen in which the UI is either boringly simplistic or ugly to look at.
Things like an unique font and rotating pre-rendered icons always add charm since they are things you'll look at through out your entire playthrough.
>SFX
Music is quite important, but something a lot of developers overlook or take for granted is sound effects.
They breath life into the game. They dictate whether shooting, jumping, punching or collecting will be satisfying or feel like a chore to do.
Collectathons like Spyro and Banjo wouldn't be the same if the collecting sounds weren't fun to listen to. Doom's shotgun wouldn't be the same without that powerful shooting sound followed by that satisfying reloading sfx.

What do you think? Can you think of any good and bad examples of these?
Would you let your kid play videogames?
What vidya would you let him play?
I think I would introduce him to each gen of consoles one by one, starting from the 3rd one. I wouldn't just give him some shit preloaded with a thousand games. He needs to learn to value what he has.
So anons have you ever played a bootleg or a rip off ever? 
I think I played some nes bootleg games. It was either that awful super mario chip and dale rip off or something.
Also this counts poorly made games on steam or whatever.
Talk about games long in development hell with unknown release dates.
Early Access trash like Scam Yidizen doesn't count.

I pray to dog Dominic finishes X Corrupted before Crapcom fully adapts to modern legal practices involving copyright.
ARE YOU READY OPERATORS?
'Starting Friday 2pm EST/7pm UTC'

>35+ different vehicles. 
>44 different weapons.
>'110% TACTICOOL.'
We're running it with RADMOD, which turns all of the above up to 11:
>Server fix that allows us to play online WITHOUT GAMERANGER.

>Launch radmod, hit LAN and then search. It is a similar method to how you would connect with GR, minus all the awfulness that comes with. Keep in mind that the server might take a second to show up.

NOTE: We're working on getting the new and improved server fix to read DNS names, for now use https://www.whatismyip.com/dns-lookup/ to get the IP.

SERVER IS: 
radops.zapto.org
Server should be up before the established time if you want to log in, test and fuck around.
Old mecha thread died a while ago. Anyway
I started playing Super Robot Wars OG 2 and like it a lot, but now I saw that there's a remake for the PS2. Is the gameboy version worth playing anyway or should I skip it and get right into the remake? Also downloading SRW30. What's your favorite ||Supa Robotto Taisen|| game? Favorite OG mech? The Daizengar is pretty hot.
Talk about those robots and that science fiction.

Anyone have any games in their childhood they played a lot but forgot about? Mine was an arcade game at a campsite I went to every year. It was an offroading game with an announcer and you picked up yellow bullets during the race?
Despite its many years, the NES still has a very solid library.
Games with non-forgiving difficulty, sometimes fair, sometimes unfair.
They're very fun to play regardless.
Some of my personal favorites are: Bucky O' Hare, Snake Rattle 'n' Roll, Blaster Master, Galaga and Battletoads.
How many NES games have you beaten?
Right now I'm playing Dragon Ball: Shenron no Nazo i.e the unaltered version of Dragon Power. It's a pretty fun adaptation of the manga.

Let's have a fire emblem thread and talk about fun shit with this series.

>What games are you playing or want to play?
>find any fun romhacks?
>Favorite girls
>Favorite lads/bros
>Are you having fun?
>Favorites and most hated games?
>Find any cool/interesting shit?
>New to the franchise?

>General thoughts/opinions?
And whatever else anons can think of.

There's news of a potential remake on the horizon. People are speculating its going to be Path of Radiance, and then Radiant Dawn. I can see that happening, but what are anons thinking and/or hoping for?
Fukken loved Gravity Rush (2) and it sucks that the games only sold around 300000 copies combined. What sucks even more is that the rights for the ip are stuck somewhere in the depths of hell called sony. The games probably have the best movement system ever. I don't know about any other game where just exploring the world is this fun. Could spend hours just flying around instead of doing story stuff or whatever. The soundtrack and visuals are awesome, too. To me they are two of the most replayable games I ever played. Really just a shame that we will (probably) never see a third game. At least the people who worked on those games are now making another game called Slitterhead (even though it doesn't look particularly good right now, but I guess all we've seen is one trailer).
Anyway, discuss how Kat smells or something.
Free Software Minecraft thing. Technically it's an engine, and there are "games" for it, like MineClone 2/MineClone 5 which are pretty good and accurate Minecraft clones. Do some of you more experienced with Minetest know what are some good games and mods to try? Preferably something more unique, not just more Minecraft clones.
Last thread hit the reply limit. Bad actors rally ITT.
Thread for serious discussions on meta issues and topics
Games you would like to make if you could or plan to make.
Here are mine:
>Architecture (Working Title)
I love exploring empty buildings. There's an atmosphere about doing so that I would like to translate into a game.
All you do is explore various buildings (A mall, an office building) while solving puzzles to get around. There's also an element of managing resources. You're looking for batteries in order to use the devices at your disposal (Such as a flashlight, as most light sources don't work). You're also looking for a certain type of batteries in order to access the last building of the game.
Think INFRA but with an atmosphere closer to Silent Hill.
>Playstation Rumble Arena
Anons had an idea of a fighting game involving PS1 characters. I'd like to see that with gameplay similar to Power Stone.
All of the graphics true to the hardware, of course. There could be a sequel with PS2 characters.
>Drum out (Working Title)
Punch-out like game where the input method is drums and you play killer solos. 'Nuff said.
>Porkyman
Pokemon game where you breed 'em all. Trainers and pokemon alike.
What are some games with a vaporwave aesthetic? Especially those from the indie game scene.
Because the other one is dead.
I decided to give Shadow Warrior 3 a shot, skipping over Shadow Warrior 1(which I've dropped at level 4-ish because the gunplay was very poor) and 2(which I haven't touched because I see it's a looter shooter and I could not stand Borderlands.)
I don't hate it, but there's a lot of bullshit to it that masks what (fairly little) I like about it. The only frame of reference to "modern" FPS I have(putting aside the games by New Blood) would be what little I've played of Doom 2016(which I've dropped also by the 4-5th level because I found it was a far less interesting Painkiller) is that I liked what the game was going for, and the combat itself was pretty fun if muddied by bullshit.
<The game is short, incredibly short. It's somewhere around 10 'levels', each level taking 5-15 minutes. I've read somewhere the game could be finished before the steam refund window is up and I fully believe it. There's 0 extra content besides the challenges tab which is pointless and buggy because the weapon upgrades aren't that interesting.
<The game(or at least the version I pirated) is pretty buggy. Challenges not tracking properly. Falling through geometry. Katana elemental attacks not triggering properly. The final boss required four restarts on my end to progress a phase.
>Unlike Doom 2016 I like how the resource management works here. You spawn health by killing enemies with ranged attacks, while spawning ammo by killing them with the katana. The katana is always bound to RMB and it's actually like weighty and fun to use compared to SW1 which solely relied on you spamming the busted katana arts for anything resembling fun or weight. It's a very neat system. Except
<The Last Stand mechanic combined with the arena health drops is something I genuinely fucking hate and wished I could turn off. Basically like Doom2016 you lose health pretty quickly because some attacks can just knock off 60, 70 points without much fanfare. To counteract this the game has this cooldown mechanic where if you go down to 1hp you get to be invincible for a few seconds before going on cooldown. If you go get health and the cooldown expires you can go to 1 hp again and the cycle repeats. This is in a game where you can spawn health at will because the game usually spawns around four or five fodder enemies for quick health/ammo. This is also the game where every arena has a couple of 50 health pickups that spawn on a timer during fights.
>With the exception of the pitiful SMG and the Basilisk which I felt could be a tiny bit more powerful(It always felt like I used one more shot than I should have when killing the larger enemies, even on headshots), the gunplay is very fun. Everything sounds meaty as shit. Everything feels great to use. You have a revolver which is accurate in single shots but also can fire as "quickly as you can click" but I'm pretty sure there was a very strict cap installed. The riot gun without upgrades was neat, but when upgraded turns into a full-auto cylinder shotgun that feels really good to use. The nade launcher was neat and the stagger function of the disc spitter was cool.
>With the exception of one enemy(The guy with the drill head, who are way too tanky and you can't attack them at all times like the ox guys) every enemy in the game is quite fun and fits the arena gameplay really well. You have the two fodder enemies, one's ranged and one's melee. You have the big tanky ox guys who force you to constantly stay on the move because they hit like a truck, chase you and have a shockwave line attack. You have the long range artillery masks, a couple of area denial enemies, a really aggressive, really annoying aerial enemy, a faster melee enemy and the really tanky chaingunner hitscan enemy.
<Unlike Doom 2016 the glory kills take an eternity to execute which I already thought they took too long in that game. They also give a full health refill which I'm not too fond of
>Unlike Doom 2016 glory kills are on a fairly uncommon resource meaning at most you get two or three a fight. They also give you an enemy specific weapon/buff depending on what enemy you killed which is a system I really like and wish to see more of in a different game.
<Physics are utterly shit or broken and I can't tell which. You have a chi blast which is a pushback spell. You can upgrade it to work on larger enemies. There's the occasional spike trap that you can impale enemies on, and there's pits and ledges all around the game's arena. I've never been able to push an enemy off a ledge. Every time I do it the invisible hand of God pushes the enemy back over the ledge.
<Momentum, speed is very unsatisfying. In combat the speed's fine. But the game has these onrails platforming sections where you're sliding on a downward slope and have to jump and wallrun(automatically, on predetermined paths signaled by vines) occasionally. They're far, FAR from anything resembling fun. You move incredibly slow, it's barely challenging. Furthermore the grappling hook is completely on rails, there's no physics to it, there's no speed to it, attempting to grappling hook a point from a 90 degree angle will have wang pull a Worms ninja rope move and somehow abruptly move backwards in the air before swinging forward. There's just nothing exhilarating about it.
<The humor is, and I keep using this word but I can't find anything better, insufferable. Wang is fucking insufferable, he's Deadpool with an asian accent. Hoji is fucking insufferable. He's Wang with a whiny voice and a slight reverb. Mokoto's not even a character and she speaks in all of two cutscenes for no more than I guarantee you two minutes. I liked Zilla but he was barely in the game either. He played off Wang well, except they shove him aside for Hoji's memery really early into the game and he barely shows up afterwards. My recollection of Wang in SW1 is that he sang You've Got the Power somewhere and that's it, I don't remember him being such an annoying fuck to listen to all game but maybe he got worse later in that game.

tl;dr: More arena fights, tighten up physics, get rid of Last Stand or arena health pickups, make Wang a mute or have Zilla be the only guy he speaks to and you would have a really fun game.

It makes me really want to give Doom Eternal a shot because I like this idea of arena fights built around movement abilities and resource management(it's more like earning) through character abilities. It's not Painkiller/Serious Sam but it's still very appealing to me. Except Eternal's like 70-90gigs everywhere I look and none of the newer scene releases cracked Denuvo so I'm curious if I should just skip over it and wait for Ultrakill/Dread Templar/that one Postal game instead.

AAA shit aside, any recommendations for Doom wads or Build mods/TCs? I've recently finished HellForged for Doom, quite fun and I can't wait for Episode 2. For Build, I was going through Alien Armageddon but honestly the Alien Gladiator's episode felt pretty weak and I couldn't be interested in finishing it. If I wanted to play UT in singleplayer I'd do so, playing it in Douk just isn't fun.

Also also, Wolfenstein ET has been released on steam and I hope that gives it the playercount boost it so deserves. It's a shame Splash Damage has released nothing good since Brink Dirty Bomb was shit. SHIIIT but ET doesn't deserve death.

>what's this rubber thing
Rubber is what makes the game playable across continents. When you're about to hit a wall the game stops you 1 pixel before you get hit and eats your rubber, giving you time to turn away from the wall when your client catches up. When you're against a wall and your rubber is 0 you die.
>why am I so slow
Go faster by grinding. Run into a wall and turn at the last moment; the closer you are to the wall the bigger the boost. Grinding is essential to getting ahead of other players and boxing them in to kill them. Rubber being finite means you need to commit to grinds or die like a retard.

I've been surfing the web in search for indies that aren't crap. While i found some interesting stuff, most cool games that i found are still in development. Are there any indie gayms that you recommend that aren't filled with tranny propaganda?
Here's some of the games that i found if you are interested:
>Victory Heat Rally
Drift gaem.
>Zera: Myths Awaken
Started as a Spyro fan game but insomniac kicked them in the balls, so they changed the character. It looks pretty good (There's a shitty 240p-looking filter but it can be turned off) and it controls pretty nice as well.
>Juice Galaxy
Also known as Juice World. Action-RPG about juice.
>Yedoma Globula
Pretty unique horror sandbox game. Play it in the dark, you pussy.
>Tanuki Sunset
Drift gaem: Raccoon in skateboard edition.
You can play it on browser so let's see what highscore you get.

The /christmas/ board itself will be up until new years so if you want to play some more next weekend or just keep the game pack as an example go download it.
Thread for the discussion of WW2 games and their modern interpretations of historical events. Discuss how people are fags for playing as the allies or why both capitalism and communism is le bad.

Also ITT we celebrate Hitlers birthday on 4/20, Happy B-Day dupler!

I've been playing some ZZT. An old collection of adventure games. It's pretty fun but what caught my eye is that you can make you own games. It's really simple as well, comparable to making an amusement park in rollercoaster tycoon.
I invite anons to check it out and try making their own games (You can get it here and play it with dosbox: https://archive.org/details/msdos_ZZT_1991). Then we can share them here and it'll be just like if we were kids back in 1991, sharing shareware with floppy disks. I'm doing one myself called Anon's Quest for Milk. I'll post progress in the thread.
Aside from that I'm also playing FF7. I'm not kin of turn-based jrpgs but I've been having a lot fun so far (10 hours in, just getting out of Gaia). If it wasn't for the combat I would probably have loved this game as a kid. What's the best FF in your opinion, anon? I might try it next.
IT'S THE BRAVE RETURN OF THE SKETCHFUL GAMENIGHTS!

Gonna make this thread for coordination of sketchful gamenights, I will (or anyone really, it doesnt need to be just me who hosts rooms) post ITT with alerts about upcoming gamenights, then the link to the lobby room afterwards when the time comes.

For now, I'm planning a sketchful game for tomorrow (Friday) 3/24/2022 at 7 PM GMT
What I'll do is I post a link to the lobby, you click on it, make a character, then you enjoy Sketchful!

>What is Sketchful.io?
It's pictionary, but with custom words. The words in question are vidya or vidya-related. Type in the word you think the artist is drawing, or draw the word you've been given if you're the artist for the round. 
Anyways, see you tomorrow, hopefully. May have another on this weekend if it's successful.
Remember to be thankful for your neps and always love them!
Thanksgiving is probably only a leanbox holiday so hopefully Vert cooked us up something nice to eat.

>What neps are ya nepping?
>Are you having fun?

Other IF/CH games are fine to talk about too, like Mary Skelter, Death's End Re;Quest, etc.

/nep/ (& IF/CH) Happenings and News

>There's a sale on the Iffy store right now
Good if you wanted shit from them. They do have some nice little acrylic standees for some of the ninja neps (personally I like green heart and white heart's standees, imo the others are pretty shit), a lot of things are on discount from LEs to SEs to merch. I highly recommend it if you can, though things are getting sold out quickly.
https://www.iffysonlinestore.com/
They also have sales on the ((( (((Steam))) ))) and Switch eshop stores if you're one of those fags who buys digital for whatever reason.

>Neptunia x Senrans was released
<Its a PS4/5 exclusive for now
<Takaki is gone
Its probably shit, but the models are nice to rip according to anons at least. Artwork and concept is interdasting (but apparently censored so don't bother), but if only it had come out 3-4 years ago instead.
All the LEs are sold out already, I guess they were too appealing.
>Neptunia ReVerse is out
<An "updated and enhanced" version of Re;Birth 1
<A remake of a remake (and this isn't the only time they've done this)
<Censorstation 5 exclusive
Fucking hell Iffy. 'CEASE'. The LEs for this one are all sold out too for anyone who was somehow interested in it.
>Neptunia Virtual Stars released in March
<Only physically available on PS4 (but was released on Steam digitally)
Its a music-based hack and slash but I haven't seen many people talk about it so idk, its a nep spinoff so don't expect much.
>Dimension Tripper Neptune: TOP NEP is coming out on Steam in early 2022
The spritework actually looks really pretty and not like simplistic chibi dogshit like most of the meme games they release in this kind of way.
I'm genuinely shocked, it might be a cute little thing to play when it comes out.
>Some pretty Nep figures are going on pre-order on Play-Asia
They look pretty good:

Basically its a shit time to be a /nep/ fan.

But as for other Idea Factory and Compile Heart games, they're not doing too bad:

>Mary Skelter Finale was released a few weeks ago
3rd one in the series and its doing very well, everyone likes Mary Skelter.
Its a dark, bloody and kinda edgy DRPG with cute girls as usual. They still have some LEs in stock here:

>Death's End Re;Quest 1 got a physical release on the Switch this year
I'm not complaining about more physical releases moving away from Noire's shithole Lastation right now.
It seems IFI is doing a better job than the jap branch of trying to stay away from that shitty platform.


I am unaware of any bunker/offsite activity since the last time it was really mentioned was a long time ago since 8ch went down and 8kunt's /nep/ catalog was mostly destroyed.
Here's some of the old info copy-pasted and adjusted when possible; no idea if its outdated or not, if it isn't, feel free to post updates in the thread:

QUESTIONS
>Which game to begin the series with?
Start with Re;Birth 1 to test the waters, then play Re;Birth 2 and/or Re;Birth 3 (with the Re;Translations), and then V-II.
 
>I've heard of bad translations in the Neptunia games, care to tell me more about it?
Translation Statuses are:
HDN, HDN Mk2 and Victory: NISA cancer.
Re;Birth 1 and V-II: Translation is alright, no worries from these ones.
Re;Birth 2: Not obviously bad at the start, but gets much worse as it goes along: in particular Neptune and Ram were screwed hard during localization. However, there is a Re;Translation made on our very own board (see above links).
Re;Birth 3: Better than the original NISA translation in Victory but still quite a lot of cancer. Main game has been retranslated, translators still required to translate DLC content.
All of the spin-offs: Varying translation quality. These range from cancer to mediocre.
 
>I'm too poor to buy the games, where do I grab them?
Ask the Share threads.
 
>I want to help with the translation efforts.
Ask in thread.

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind was released May 1st, 2002. Since that date was 20 years in at least part of the US already, and I doubt I'll be here at midnight US Eastern time, so I'm going to make a thread on it now.

>I've never played Morrowind
You're missing out! Grab a copy from GoG or whatever redistribution of the GoG executable you want (though for all I know Bethesda will officially give it away for free tomorrow) and read this guide to get the best experience.
https://en.uesp.net/wiki/User:Agiletek/First_Time_Players
This essentially spoiler-free guide is focused on telling you how to get the game working best, and instructing you on the mechanics the manual really should have explained better rather than cheats and mods to make the game unrecognizable like most new player MW guides do.


>I've played Morrowind so extensively there's nothing more for me to see
In just the past few years, Morrowind's still extensive fanbase has actually released some expansion length mods which are actually better than the official expansions (not that being better than Tribunal is hard...). All of these effectively require OpenMW over Morrowind.exe due to the original engine handling points far from origin poorly (otherwise NPCs will stutter due to rounding errors, and the world map won't really work for new areas).
<Tamriel Rebuilt
The OG. This long running mod project has releasing new content since 2006, but actually predates the release of Morrowind as an organization. The newest release was made at the start of last year, and work continues on producing both an update to the project's earliest areas, and a large chunk of new land. Features plenty of content, though large parts of it are just more vanilla MW.
<Skyrim: Home of the Nords
A sister project to Tamriel Rebuilt. Skyrim: Home of the Nords eschews the lore and geography of the 2011 game (and its many re-releases) to create the province of Skyrim as it was presented in the original lore, showing the rest of Tamriel can be as interesting and unique as Resdayn's Black Isle and not just fantasy vikings. Already has high quality content in a volume comparable to a large chunk of the original game with 40+ hours of content (some mutually exclusive). Highly recommended.
<Starwind
An Old Republic Star Wars total conversion. Varies between incredibly impressive and jank at the drop of a hat. This one has a hard requirement for OpenMW instead of a soft one. Do 'not' install according to the official instructions unless you want to make your Morrowind install only useful for playing Starwind. Instead extract the contents to anywhere you want, open OpenMW's openmw.cfg and add that folder as a new data directory, then create a backup copy of your Morrowind.ini before adding the custom one needed for Starwind. Comment out the data directory entry ( proceed the data directory's entry in the cfg with a #) and swap in your backup Morrowind.ini when you want to do anything else with your MW install, and vice-verse for when you want to play Starwind.


>trivia
<the Russian version is the only officially translation of Morrowind to maintain compatibility with mods, thanks to implementing the translation as a DLL hack instead of renaming everything. OpenMW supports this translation (though using a cleaner implementation than a DLL hack), and allows creating new fan-translations that are compatible with mods for the English version. 
<the French version appears to use earlier drafts of the in-game books, and contains many details that were cut in editing in the original English release
<the N-Gage exclusive Shadowkey is not only surprisingly good (why this was never ported to DS or PSP, we will never know), its lore is also canon to future Bethesda releases, being referenced several times, and a big source for Home of the Nords
Half-Life is such a superior game compared to its sequel.
Why exactly did Half-Life 2 fall so far in comparison? It feels like they tried to be more slow and cinematic rather than focus on creating fast and intense gameplay which made the first one so great.
Thread for discussion of invertebrates battling with high explosive weaponry on randomly generated terrain. Those that complain about rope being too hard to learn will be bullied.
Do you think T17 will ever put out anything on the same tier as Armageddon ever again? Of course not, look at their CEO, they've milked worms to death. Once you put out a Battle Royale you can't really make it any clearer that you've sold out.
But I digress, keeping a community intact for 22 years at this point is a feat that few gaems have accomplished. Post custom levels, schemes, teams, and voicepacks if you have any good ones.

LINEAGE 2

Clan Big Guys is here For You.  New players are welcome.  We have a solid 11 or 12+ players right now.  There's plenty of room for hotheads and Big Guys around here. 

For some background information, Lineage 2 is an MMO with open-world PvP (base game was released at around 2004) that was widely considered to be an Eastern equivalent of WoW - so much that even today, it retains it's popularity. We are playing on a server with an Interlude expansion (widely considered to be the best due to balancing issues) at x1 rates, which is a way to say that EXP/money gain is 1:1 from the original release.
While at a glance, it may look like yet another Korean grinder, the endgame includes massive wars for the right to kill Epic Raid Bosses or own castles - limited entry zones exclusive to player clans (guilds). Couple that with open-world PvP and it's not difficult to see that Lineage 2 offers an almost unique experience of participating in the equivalent of Mexican Gang Wars without taking the Lead Pill subdermally and generously donating your organs to the cartel.

I have my PS2 and PS3 connected to a CRT. Quite comy for when I don't want to play on my desk.
In a nutshell; Empty human architecture or fields common to cause a feeling of unease. See mp4 related to get a better grasp.
As of late, I've been obsessed over this recently defined concept of liminal spaces.
It's nothing new and you've probably already experienced it whether in real life or a videogame.
Just think back whenever you stood on an open space or even a hallway all by yourself, in total silence or maybe playing gmod alone for the first time.
It's common in horror games but is usually accompanied with frequent encounters with monsters which kills the concept I'm referring to. Same with games like Stalker, Metroid and the Fallout and TES series.
Isolation is really comfy, yet unsettling at the same time and is something that works best on vidya.
Here's a few games that have scratched that itch for me:
>Garry's Mod
As I said before, playing gmod by yourself evokes that feeling. There's even a lot of fan maps that revolve around this concept.
>INFRA
Source game where you go around all by yourself fixing machinery. More comfy than eerie.
>LSD: Dream Simulator.
The jumpy music kind of ruins it for me, though you can just mute the game and play some ambience music and it works the best that way. Pretty fun to explore.
>Portal
Pretty good though not as eerie,

Any games or mods like this that you can think of?
I'm thinking of playing Stanley Parable and ICO next. There's superliminal but that seems gay.
Any screenshots of your own that you can share?
While stalker isn't desolate enough, is good material for liminal screenshots.
What's the future of gaming? Is conventional input gaming exhausted? Is VR the next proper medium?
I've had my Wii U collect dust despite not only being able to play Wii and GC games natively but also being able to play NDS game in the most comfy way.
It's a Taiko no Tatsujin machine at this point.
Any games you personally recommend? Any hidden gems if you will?
I always thought of the GC and Wii library to be quite inferior to its counterparts but there is the ocasional golden nugget.
Post comfy vidya wallpapers or even your desktop so we can call you a faggot. 
Gondolas are fine too.

I recently got into PC gaming and I have found out about all these reverse engineered games that allows a multitude of options such as modding, proper control customization and all sorts of quality of life improvements. GZDoom, decomp of Mario 64, Daggerfall Unity and OpenMW feel like the definitive versions of those games and it's hard to go back to the original versions that are outdated or praying that the emulator is accurate and doesn't have it's own issues. I wish these faggy companies would release the source code of their older catalogue, but I understand that they don't want to give out potential free money or it's mostly likely they're lazy and retarded.

What is Anon's favorite source port or engine recreation of a game? Any interesting projects you're looking forward to? I'm waiting for the Ocarina of Time PC port to be complete and try it out, there's also MGS project that's in the works but that's probably years away.
I've been fucking around with SM64 romhacking, decomp and the such and managed to do this 
She's very low-poly because I wanted to stay within the original model's poly-count but as it turns out, it supports way more. I'll probably give her more vertices later.
Aside from that, any good SM64 you've been playing recently?
Have you played that B3313 romhack? Have you seen Kaze's new project? It looks awesome: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=7VhNBvLke4A
The enviroments are really detailed and well textured.
I would like to see a Nioh style Castlevania game.
I never tried the 3D games aside from 64 but I imagine they are nothing like that.
I've been playing SotN and I can only imagine how GOOD a 3D game would look like if done well.
FUCK YEAH HAWT LOLIS
It's Phantasy Star Online, motherfucker. Need I explain more?

>How do I get onto this shit?
1)Register an account at http://144.217.150.114/register.php
2)Download client here: https://pixeldrain.com/u/Uky4aGCb
WARNING: Much like Lineage 2, PSO:BB has its own anticheat shit called GameGuard, causing it to be flagged as malware on Windows 10. This seems to be just a Windows 10 issue, as my Windows 7 laptop didn't flag anything when running the client. Keep in mind that Windows 10 flags shit like High/Low Orbiting Ion Cannon as well.
If you don't give a shit about anticheat then you should probably be fine, and if you really care about security then you should probably just run it in a Windows VM anyway.
3)Run install.reg (afaik this just sets the game font to Dotum)
4)Run online.exe

>Okay, so how do I actually play this shit?
Read the game manual and keyboard layout.
<TL;DR
WASD - Move character
Arrow Keys - Menu Select/Action Pallete (The left, down, and right arrows correspond to the blue, green, and red buttons accordingly, and the up arrow centers the camera.)
Enter - Select/Advance text
Home - Open menu

If you want some more info on the game mechanics, then just read Ephinea's tutorial for the game since I'm too lazy to explain it here: https://ephinea.pioneer2.net/beginners-guide/the-lobby-and-controls/

CLOWNS ARE FUCKING INVICIBLE EDITION

I've been playing a lot of this lately mostly as mod nations since they are the most interesting, but also as some other nations to learn the mechanics better and how to counter massive army wiping spells. In Dominions you choose a nation and pretender god(little g) from the pretender list and then try to defeat all other pretenders to become a true god(BIG G). My impressions so far is that the game is an over designed HoMM3, but the game has some redeemable things going for it like it's modability and that it can be run without a graphics card. 

\\\Helpful Information\\\

EA=Early Age MA=Middle Age LA=Late Age LA has higher starting population at the beginning of the game than MA, and MA has more than EA. More armored troops in LA.
Scales reffers to pretender design where you can choose to have positive or negative traits for your dominion that affects your nation at the trade of of more powerful 

pretenders. It's sometimes a good idea to make your pretender powerful in magic your nation lacks.
Pretneders are seperated into 4 categories by starting dominions. 1 Dom is small humanoids like mages which are cheap and can have many magical paths, 2 dom is Super combatants that fight small armies of 50-60 on their own, 3 Dom are titans which typically need to be equipped with magical items before they can be powerful and typically serve as national defenders, and 4 Dom are usually immobile, but have insane defensive stats, and traits. Make good researchers to. Dominion is the area of effect whcih doesn't necessarily coincide with your territory that influences the land. Lose all your dominion and your pretender dies. Sacreds are troops often that can only be recruited at your capital which can be blessed with blessings you choose during pretender desing to make them sometimes insanely strong. 
Early game usually refers to the expansion phase which typically starts from turn 1and ends at 12-15, Middle Game ends at turn 30-50 and Late game is 50+.
Mages can forge items for your leaders like shields, weapons, and armor.
Super combatants refers to either Pretenders or Summons that can devastate even powerful armies.
Communions are special spells Called Communion slave and communion master. Communion slaves boost their masters in all magic paths that mage has except priest spells and absorb fatigue from the master at the cost of not being able to cast spells themselves.. The boosts are 2=1, 4=2, 8=3, 16=4, 32=5, 64=6. I don't know if 128 boosts to 7, but if you cna have 128 mages not casting spells you're probably winning anyways.  

\\\Nations for Beginners\\\
This is not a comprehensive list, I am still learning the game, and most of these nations aren't necessarily powerful, but are simple enough and usually have devastating basic troops which makes expansion easier. Some of these are top tier however, do realize the tippest toppest of tiers is full of mostly difficult to play races like EA Mictlan which are not for beginners.
1. EA Vanheim: All the troops are devastating and you'll figure out why, the consumate rushing race.
2. EA Helheim: Same sort of bullshit with Vanheim but a different flavor
3. EA Niefelheim: All the Eims are some serious shit, this one has huge giant troops and powerful mages.
4. EA Formoria: Like Jotunheim but even better, also can enter the sea and fuck up water nations which are generally terrible in EA. Actually is a Top tier EA nation.
5. EA Atlantis: Not especially powerful but they have some strong troops and they have an easier time getting up on land than other EA water nations.
6. EA Mekone: Huge giant troops with good armor, but no sacred troops which makes you suffer heavily in middle to late game.
7. EA Kailasa: Lots of sacred troops which makes experimentation with blessings easier.
8. EA Pangaea: Good nature nation with some strong troops and can heal wounds.

1. MA Ermor: Skelly Spam supreme, but require some planning so as not to burn out to your dominion which has a special effect that kills pop fast regardless of deathscale. How their nation works though can teach you a lot about how to use summons, and mages to your advantage.
2. MA Sceleria: The most powerful nation in the fucking game, Ermor but even better and with more options.
*Disclaimer* DON'T choose these nations for Multiplayer until you really learn the game, you will be rushed.
3. MA C'tis: Stupid lizards who prefer heat scale 2, and have a decent line up of troops. Can you teach you about how winter fucks up coldbloodied guys like with slyfox.
4. MA R'lyeh: The best water nation in MA which means you will typically dominate the ocean, and you have the easiest time getting up on land. Just choose productivity scales +3 and spam illithids with meteorite guards and you'll do fine. One of the most powerful communion nations.
5. MA Nazca: Fliers with armor which should be illegal, and powerful but extremely expensive mages. Wind+Death Magic, enough said.
6. MA Xibalba: Frogs and bats, learn how swamp survival and being able to see in the dark wont do you any good on 90% of the map. Has skelly spam fliers though.
7. MA Phlegra: Powerful giant troops with armor and a lot of health, but no sacreds and lacks the shields mekone has.
8. MA Pangaea: Same things as EA.
9. MA Jotunheim: All the other eims arent as powerful as they used to be, but not this one. Powerful troops and mages.

1. LA Atlantis: One of the most powerful nations in LA and can travel on land and water easily. Have strong troops and powerful mages. Just rush evocation and spam wailing winds, along with stygian rains.
2. LA Man: Fucking crossbows son.
3. LA Caelum: Flying armored guys.
4. LA Utgard: Powerful giant troops.
5. LA Phlegra: Powerful troops and finally a scred mage, have the most powerful super combatant in the game currently. Can also run communions.
*Disclaimer* I want to make a special mention of LA R'lyeh which is the worst in the game, no good and no fun. Don't choose it.

Game+GBA BIOS: https://anonfiles.com/v9a8O2Qfx1/
>how to setup
1. Extract the archives somewhere.
2. Run Dolphin.exe
3. Go to "Config".
4. Go to "Gamecube" and under GBA settings enter the path to the gba_bios.bin that came with the game, without this the integrated GBA won't werk.
5. Go to "Paths" and enter the folder where you put the game ISO, if done right it should appear in the main window.
6. Close the settings window and open the controller settings window.
7. Change port 1 of the Gamecube controller to GBA (Integrated), then click on the configure button right next to it and set your controls there.
8. Now (You) should technically be ready to play the game. Try launching Crystal Chronicles from the main menu, if there's a small GBA window next to the GC window everything should be fine.
9. Optional, but recommended: In the graphics settings window change the backend to Vulkan which is what I'll be using to host the game, this isn't strictly necessary but lowers the chance of desyncs.

>how to play with anons
1. Go to "Tools"
2. Click on "Start Netplay"
3. In the netplay window choose "Traversal Server" as your connection type, set a nickname and then enter the session hostcode given by the host ITT. If done right a chat window should pop up. Netplay won't work unless both the host and any clients use the same Dolphin version.

>the session already started but I still want to play. What do?
In the netplay window go to host, select the game you want to host and start netplay, then post your hostcode ITT.
The netplay window will have a few additional options, of these I recommend enabling Host Input Authority under Network.
Note that for GC+GBA games you have to enable the GBA for each port in the controller port assignment window.
With traversal server you technically shouldn't need to port forward, but if anons can't connect there's an option to set a dedicated listening port.
>I don't want to play but watch anons play.
Any netplay user connected to the host that hasn't been assigned a controller port is made into a spectator once the game starts, note that you can't join while a session is running so if you want to host a cytube livestream or something make sure to join before the host starts the game.

>when do we play?
I intend to host from 20:00 CET/3PM EDT to 02:00 CET/9PM EDT.
Talk about hacks you've been playing, inquire about hacks for games you might be interested in, discuss making hacks, advertise hacks you've made though I doubt anyone here has done that, and point and laugh at gay drama in the rom hacking community.
You can find most rom hacks here.
https://www.romhacking.net/
http://www.baddesthacks.net/
romhacking.net is run by oversensitive trannies but it's also the largest database for hacks and hacking tools on the internet. baddesthacks.net hosts many hacks that were rejected by romhacking.net. Most of them are just shitposts, like a hack that translates all the text in Secret of Mana to braille, but there's a few interesting ones here and there. If you want more than that, you'll have to go to websites that are dedicated to hacking games from a specific series like feuniverse.us.

I finally decided to get into Fire Emblem rom hacks so I decided to start with a hack of Sacred Stones called Fire Emblem Vision Quest because everyone says it's the best one. It is pretty good so far but there are a few problems with it. The creator really liked making chapters where you have to protect a bunch of NPCs which are always a pain. There are levels where you have to protect everything from chickens, to gazelles, to logs of wood. 
There are also a lot of redundant characters. It is more difficult than most of the real Fire Emblem games so I guess he wanted there to be more than enough characters for you to finish the game with. But so many of them feel pointless. It seems like you get another cavalier or axe user in every other level.
I was hoping the hack would expand on the map exploration of Sacred Stones but the creator took that out to prevent grinding I guess. That's understandable but it would have been cool to see that element used for something interesting like branching pathways.
The story feels like it was originally intended to be a fantasy novel that was later adapted into a game as many chapters begin with overwrought descriptions of the landscape and culture of the area where you're fighting. There is also way too much dialogue. Characters will go on and on about pointless shit like the taste of certain foods and you have to read through all of it to look for hints that might be buried underneath it all. I guess the creator thought this would flesh the characters out or give them little quirks. Outside of that, the writing is fine. It's nothing special but it's good enough to explain why you're fighting every battle. Also, the characters say "heck" all the time. I thought this was because of the heckin' meme that the kids love these days but it turns out the creator just doesn't like curse words and used "heck" instead.
In spite of all the complaints, it is a good hack. Not as good as any of the GBA games but better than the 3DS ones. Give it a try if you've played all the GBA games to death and still want more.
Sport games usually have the stigma of being for normalniggers, even within circles of normalfags, probably due to yearly releases of shit like Fifa and Madden.
In truth though, they can be great, even without all that wacky stuff that make games like NHL Blitz and Mario Strikers stand out.
Vidya like Virtua Tennis 4 and Blades of Steel can be a lot of fun regarless if it's more of a simulator.
What's your dream sport game?
Futboll with anime girls? Soccer with guns?
Maybe a fun peripheral?

Yes I need to make a single pack eventually.

Piratefags: Install Joint ops from the provided links and then install radmod 2.6 + hotfix + 2.7.
Legitfags: Make sure your Joint Ops Typhoon Rising is v1.7.5.7, then you can install radmod and the hotfix.
If you installed correctly, you should see "V1.7.5.7 RADMOD V2.7" on the bottom right corner of the main menu.

HOW TO PLAY ONLINE:
NO MORE ((( (((GOYRANGER))) )))!!!
Radmod 2.7 includes a server fix that's installed automatically. To join a server:
>Open directip_settings.txt (it's inside your JO base folder after installing radmod.) and replace the first line (where the 255.255.255.255 is) with the IP of the server you wish to connect to.
>Launch radmod, hit LAN and then search. It is a similar method to how you would connect with GR, minus all the awfulness that comes with. Keep in mind that the server might take awhile to show up.

>RADTracker

RADTracker is a tool developed by the RADDevs to facilitate connecting to servers and launching the game with parameters. Users are able to keep track of their favorite servers and automatically configure the game to connect to it, much like a server browser you'd see in other games. This also comes with the feature of converting DNS names to IP so you can keep track of servers with a static DNS name.

Other one hit bump limit. If you weren't aware, John William Galt, the voice actor for the original Shadow Warrior's Lo Wang, has passed away earlier this week. Discuss how he, Thief's Russel(Garrett) and Blood's Weyete(Caleb) were the best VAs FPS games had or something.
Any upcoming FPS games, wads or mods you're looking forward to?
Also a big thanks to the anons answering the questions on Loonix drivers last thread.
When people make games, they have a general idea of what they want their players to do. But sometimes a group of players will find another way to play the game that ends up being more enjoyable for them than the intended way to play it.
The biggest example of this would probably be "Friendlies" in TF2. You pick the fat man, squat in a corner with a sandvich out, and the world goes wild. Some years pass and Friendlies have become a well-known phenomenon of TF2 while also having some community servers dedicated to being friendly. On top of that, Valve gives a nod to them by releasing idle taunts and a lot more two-player taunts. Now being friendly is somewhat of an accepted part of TF2's culture.
Another huge example is Moonbase Alpha which was just supposed to be a way for NASA to give a realistic simulation that will inspire the next generation to explore space. Nobody gave a shit about the space simulation and just used the chat system's text-to-speech to spam and ear rape the whole place.
One last incident that I can think of from the top of my head was the Back-Off Barbarian minigame from Castle Crashers. It's a tile-based minigame where you use quick reflexes to press the direction keys shown on the ground to survive. The achievement tied to this minigame was to survive for 2 minutes and 30 seconds, which is insanely difficult because of how many enemies would have spawned by then. But players soon realized that the most optimal way to play this minigame and to get the achievement was to just button mash your direction keys like a monkey for 2 and a half minutes. Everyone also though button mashing was way more fun because it was hilarious seeing your character moving too fast to be killed. The devs didn't like this and nerfed button mashing to the ground.
I know that there are probably more examples than just these three I mentioned. What are some other cases of games being played in a way that was unintended by the developers?
THEY MADE LEGO STAR WARS INTO A THIRD PERSON SHOOTER
They also dubbed them. Fucking why?
You like lego games, anon?
I've been meaning to revisit them since I used to play them a lot coop with my brother.
So far, I've been having a lot of fun with Racers and Bionicle. I'm really looking forward to Quest for Mata Nui.
Back in my time, RTS were huge, one of the most popular genres on PC's, in the 2000's MMORPGS was also extremely popular and a landmark for its time, both but both genres look dead nowadays, Age of Empire 2 remastered helped a little bit to revive RTS, but majority of players are the same old people, in MMMORPGS the players are also people in their 30s playing for nostalgia only.
Why do modern generations of gamers seem to be incapable of liking these genres?
You guys didn't forget, did you?  I did.  ME:A released in March 2017, and I'm a few weeks past the actual date but I don't care.  The shitposting about that game's development was some of the best time I ever spent on any /v/ and I'd like to relive some of it now that we know the franchise is fucking dead and Bioware is a corpse being puppeteered for a brand name associated with past accomplishments.  The memes, photoshops, shitposts, and videos people made about this game were both very high quality and completely unified.  Nobody except corporate shills and journos could defend this pile of garbage, and seemingly everywhere you went on the internet people felt the same way about it.

There are also a couple good reads regarding how badly the project was mismanaged, which seems to be a running theme with Bioware in recent years, first for ME:A and then for Anthem.
https://archive.ph/K5Cua - Kotaku article which has interviews with developers, etc.
>When BioWare first got its hands on Frostbite, the engine wasn’t capable of performing the basic functions you’d expect from a role-playing game, like managing party members or keeping track of a player’s inventory. BioWare’s coders had to build almost everything from scratch.
>Engineers on Andromeda had to design many of their own features from scratch, including their animation rig. “Frostbite is wonderful for rendering and lots of things,” said a person who worked on the game. “But one of the key things that makes it really difficult to use is anything related to animation. Because out of the box, it doesn’t have an animation system.” (Frostbite was later attached to an animation system called ANT, that source said, but it was full of “duct-taped issues.”)
>First, word came down that they were moving from hundreds of procedurally generated planets to 30. Some time later, that number shifted again, from 30 to seven, according to several sources.

There was also an from old 8chan/v/ who apparently worked as a QA tester: https://archive.fo/53pku#selection-7843.0-7843.8
>I can answer from QA: "I fucking told you so." Everyone god damn knew we were sending it out to the slaughter. We knew. We knew not only were we sending it out to die but highest level execs tend to put the blinders on and go "OH ITS AMAZING!" No its not. From the highest level dev down to the lowest QA we all knew that this was a shit show. The first indication is when your game thats been in development for nearly two years has nothing done for it. Not even a grayboxed example of a level.
I really cannot answer this one because I remember they didn't look butt ugly and in fact it was quite different for a long time. >Somewhere along the line they tweaked [the women character models] to the point where I got told to shut up. I said the female looked like she was an albino black person. There was multiple times I was spoken to in private about this project but specifically me pointing out that she looked like they had turned her into a black person without the skin tone offended someone.
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.
You want to know something really fun about videogames? Everything but the videogames.
As a kid, the steps to play a new videogame were an adventure in itself. Your parents buying you or renting a videogame and looking at the box-art and manual on the way home. Getting a console on Christmas or for your birthday and unpacking it all, turning it on for the first time and being greeted by a menu in the case of 6th gen consoles;
Installing Windows XP on your computer and browsing all the accesories.
It feels like this playful feeling of packaging and stuff has gone away. Everything feels minimalistic and to the point. Physical games no longer have manuals and the cover art is usually pretty boring.
Just think of the Switch's UI compared to the NDSXL and 3DS's one. The NDSXL came packaged with flipnote studio, a camera thingy, that music parrot. The 3DS came with even more stuff. A drawing program, swapdoodle, that shoot heads game, cards that you could play games with, the Mii stuff, customizable themes. It was great.
What do you get with the switch? A sad little UI with no music and nothing installed on it. Just a white and black theme which isn't even fucking pitch black.
The PSP had a lot of cool things as well. A web browser, themes, you even had Skype. Now you get fucking ads and no themes.
The OG Xbox, the GC, the Dreamcast.
The cases and outside hardware could be worse, I guess? If you like this rgb neon lights bullshit aesthetic, It's fine. I just think it looks boring.
Aside from that, what are some of your favorite console cases and menus?
I stumbled onto this and it surprised me.  I'd kind of forgotten about this game despite how promising it looks (though I haven't actually played the first).  The devs' twitter account hasn't posted much actual news since last year, so I had a quick skim and this is what I found:

>We are pleased to announce that Freedom Planet 2 has a release date at last! The game will be officially releasing on Tuesday, September 13th this year.  More information below on why this date was chosen.
>In terms of content, we have two stages and one boss left to finish. Most of the remaining work is with balancing, bugfixes, and visuals. With that in mind, we'll have a juicy progress report for you on Monday! We can't wait to show you more of what we've been working on!

The adventure mode apparently has three campaigns which split off after the first level or so.  There's an archipelago environment later called Parusa with new enemy types, remixed enemy combinations, etc. and a big floating island at the center.  There will be at least four playable characters (the trio from the first game, plus a new panda girl).  I'd be interested to hear the viewpoints of anyone who's been following the project more closely; there was a demo and a teaser trailer released five years ago in 2017, but precious little since.  My gut says there's some kind of feature creep or problem with the code, but I can't be certain.

I am also reminding you that the lead developer is a tranny, so even if you're interested in this game, don't give the devs any money.
FEATURING: MOTOR RAID, SOL CRESTA, AND THE PRESELECTED SURPRISE GAMES, GUNBLADE NY AND L.A. MACHINEGUNS
Somewhere near the woods lies a gas station, neatly placed seemingly in the middle of nowhere; however, it is far from desolate. For there anons from all around gather inside a room. A room filled to the top with arcade machines. There, anons enjoy the evening drinking, calling each other faggot and just having a good old time.
>What is this?
Anons vote for some games and play them until they beat them or lose. Arcade games that don't take long to complete and reward skill. Once finished they post their score and see who did the best. They give others advice, share what they think of the game, call each other casuals, say which character they would fuck and more.
>How much time do I have to play?
One month or until winners are announced. New threads are posted at around 00:00 UTC-8 on the first Saturday of the month.
>Where do I get them?

MOTOR RAID
>Road Rash IN SPAAAAAACE
>beat the competition with weapons and kicks and boost past the finish line in various futuristic tracks
>runs alright in MAME, but Model 2 Emulator is a bit better, and lets you enhance the grafix
>make sure to set analog controls correctly, or you'll start dropping speed for no reason

SOL CRESTA
>Platinum made an STG inspired by the old Cresta arcade games
>dock your ships together and split them apart Getter Robo-style
>I have no idea why the game's so fucking huge, but I managed to squeeze the ISO down by a couple gigs with ultramaxed 7-zip

GUNBLADE NY
>rail shooter with infinite ammo machine guns
>protect ((( New York and the UN ))) from the heroes trying to destroy them
>the chopper will dynamically maneuver and swing around to give you motion sickness, so make sure to kill everyone quickly
>if you let the enemy launch the nuke in the Hard course, you get punched by your CO in the ending
>you'll get Z-fighting everywhere if you try it with MAME; use Model 2 Emulator instead

L.A. MACHINEGUNS: RAGE OF THE MACHINES
>sequel to Gunblade
>now four cities on the other side of America are being threatened by Skynet
>there are civilians to mow down along with enemies
>as it's a Model 3 game it's complete shit with MAME, but runs well in Supermodel; have fun setting up the controls

Gunblade and L.A. Machineguns are also on the Wii in a double pack, uploaded separately. Gunblade NY is way too bright and washed out but L.A. Machineguns is too dark. It may be due to emulation issues. Also, they removed the Twin Towers, changed the billboards and made it all widescreen.

A fourth Jedi Knight game done on the Outcast/Academy engine has been accidentally announced.

https://archive.ph/QvPQ1

>A Steam Page for “STAR WARS™ Jedi Knight – Force Adept™” was briefly visible today. The page was quickly returned to private, but not before being saved. The page was clearly prematurely launched, having only a single picture (a header image featuring a crudely drawn “JK4”, pictured above) but included a full description and several tags.

>The description read:
>The Jedi Knight series finally continues after twenty years. A year after the events of Jedi Academy, the Force leads young Twi’leki athlete and force adept Sekka’handira into possession of a holocron with ancient Jedi Master Arren Kae. Sekka soon finds herself stalked across the galaxy by the agents of the dark side equipped with monstrous cybernetics, all intent on acquiring her new friend forr their mysterious agenda.

<Engage enemies with Lightsaber and blaster across over 20 levels.
<Utilize a new arsenal of blasters.
<Cross-Platform multiplayer with Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S players.
<Powered by an updated version of the Quake III Arena engine that powered Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy

>The page listed Voidpoint, LLC (Ion Fury) as the developer as well as listing Xbox Game Studios and Disney as publishers. The Steam page listed the game as supporting Single-player, Online PvP, Cross-platform Multiplayer, Partial Controller Support, and Steam Cloud and as “Verified” for Steam Deck. As Jedi Academy launched in 2003, the description implies Force Adept is scheduled for a 2023 release.

I hate fighting games
Late at night, I was fapping to some double deck comic about Silent Hill with female Pyramid Head. I was having a good time but at the same time, because it was really dark and I didn't have any sort of background noise it kind of made me unsettled.
My dick was still erect but the comic's really oppresive style made me feel uncomfortable. I even tried putting some atmosphere music and it made the scenario even more oppresive.
Is there such a thing as eroge horror games? Do you think it would work?
I'm sure there are thousand VNs about erotic monster but I'm looking for gameplay similar to Silent Hills' or Penumbra's.
