Look at this fucking board >>>/bmn/
READ THE RULES https://zzzchan.xyz/v/custompage/rules.html
Still working on Issue #1.
- Anons create a gaming magazine styled after early to mid-2000's mags
- Magazine is supposed to include :
>reviews, previews and overviews of any games anons have played
>top 10 lists
>tips and tricks
>fake ads or maybe rip some of the old ones directly from old magazines if they're cool/funny/humiliating
>comics (as if, no drawfags apart from the one who drew a fake cover which kicked the whole thing off)
>whatever else we think of
- Deadline for Issue #1 is January 31st, whatever is done by then, is going to be included in the mag this may be pushed earlier if progress stagnates
- While only basic visual design and writing efficacy are asked from anons, we'll take what we can get. This is meant to be fun, I just don't like spelling errorrs.
- No real guidelines, write whatever the fuck you want, but if you do want to make something resembling professional work (pics 1-4 in OP are NOT professional), pick up a copy Scribus, Adobe In-Design or Photoshop and edit to your hearts content.
Remember: Have fun!
Link to and archive of the previous thread:
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention there was talk of trading cards being included with each issue
I can't edit and make a good looking article, could anyone help me if I shit out a piece talking about a game?
I've never played yugioh, so make fun of me if you want
need the template nigga, too lazy to go to previous thread
Go ahead man, someone will find the time to mold your ramblings into something cohesive.
I should really start reading the thread before hitting Reply
thanks, and don't worry, it happens.
So, how many articles are going to be featured?
to the person who made the Vita OC
maybe we could do a second page or something?
That might be cool
Assman wants his booty to have a sequel. A pair of bloons for enjoyment, if you know what he means, right?
as many as there will be made by the deadline
so far we have 2 reviews, 1 long ass review, 1 top 5/10 list, 6-7 ads and 7 collectible cards
There's also the Top Character Creators in Vidya list which I'm assuming anon hasn't finished yet and 2-4 more articles in the works that I'm aware of.
I want to start making the cover's artwork. I was thinking it could be Vita-tan and Samus holding eachother's ass. What do you think?
I also wanted to try and make the cover title but I suck at typography so someone else should so it.
>ywn play Valkyrie Wilde: Full Frontal Assault
Sounds deliciously lewd, I say go for it
Im the anon with the top 5 creators thing, I’m just a lazy cunt when it comes to making pages. I’ll have it done. It’ll be two pages, but I’ll make them independant so they can go on either side
>pics 1-4 in OP are NOT professional
Well fuck you too.
Sounds cool but try to make it as PG as possible, this isn't meant to be a porn magazine. Don't worry about the logo for now.
Make an "SFW" and an uncensored version for the anons who actually wanna see what you had in mind rather than being constrained
The lewd version goes in the poster section
Would the comic strips have to be vidya related?
Why? Did you want to draw something pertaining to the horoscope or the best season to seed your fields?
First, second, and fourth are unplayable. Fifth is pretty good.
Italicized text doesn't do anything on normal monsters. Pic related is how effects look.
Requires 3 tributes so it's kinda slow. You may be able to cheat it out with another card but it lacks any typing so it'll be hard to do.
I think that can be used as-is without logos, although a "second arm DLC" note might be funny.
Shut up nerd.
This is good, but the image is too low res. Post the original and I'll see if I can enlarge it using AI.
Behold! I didn't even need to upscale it, reverse image search got me the original from Unsplash.
Directly swap the two photos and you're golden.
made a joke edit
I actually prefer this one, good job.
I don't get that edit of the logo, the A in the A-style logo is supposed to be two people fucking doggy style, what the fuck are the people in the Z supposed to be doing? what kind of wacky kamasutral sex pose is that
I'll probably reconstruct his whole poster and use my superior vector logo anyway :^)
That new logo really fits the theme.
Might want to change the text. It almost implies that I’d feel better after coming here.
this one could be used either at the start of an issue or just the first issue
and this one could be used at the end of an issue or the next issue
You two would need to pick one typeface though
But I thought we didn't want too many people to know exactly where this magazine came from? Or did I misunderstand something? I mean we propbably have crossposters who already know about it, so the question is more about how outspoken do we want to be about magazines origins. Does it really matter at the end of the day? It's all for fun. And videogames.
>we didn't want too many people to know exactly where this magazine came from
<implying any non-IB user wouldn't immediately click away upon encountering such a magazine anywhere
Get back to work!
What would you say to cartoons placed all throughout the magazine like the New Yorker so people who don't want to bother with full pages can participate?
Contribute whatever you feel like, we'll figure it out. We need content more than anything right now.
don't bring gay drama into this, wrong magazine
I've put it into the TO-DO folder
Calm down, he said he'll do it
Everyone knows seagull, like all internet hotpockets is a gigantic faggot
WIP, probably going to have to keep this until the second issue because I don't want the first one to be overfilled with countdowns.
>tsst, what like retarded vampires or sumthn tsst
I should have kept my fucking mouth shut, it's always shit with these people
Do not actually buy an Ouya.
I think you can flash her and use her for multi media purposes and some home automation.
>mfw I haven't found one and give her a good home
If you run out of time just leave it blank.
come on anon
are more creative than that around here
Top 5 reasons are doorstop, paper weight, beverage coaster, decoration for your PC, fleshlight
You made very clear the fact you are mad and that you care, but how about you actually try arguing like an adult next?
Aren't donations to the poor tax-deductible?
There's that, and also free blowjobs
Which either might be amazing if Ouya's poverty-induced hunger makes them better, or worse if all that gross homelessness, lack of hygiene, and dry lips and tongue end up feeling nasty
was about to post this lmao
Those numbers look flat and almost modern. I'm not getting that 2002 gaming zine
Oh look its that one game anon was looking for in the share thread
I didn't even realize that was the point of circle is astyle's logo. I tried something like this but the z is no longer centered, and no longer symmetrical
Yeah this is much better.
These are amazing, nice job anon.
If I could make ... Diablo II
Blizzard has established and proven itself to be a mainstay company, a household name, a Mr. Rogers of video games. It's been around the block and it's here to stay. Baller. Diablo was a great innovation to the DnD genre of games, adding more direct and adrenaline pumping dungeon-crawling action, a much needed breath of fresh (as fresh as dungeons go) air. They've been teasing Diablo II for a while now and I fail to see how they'll recapture the lightning in a bottle on hteir own. That is why I, Anon, will tell you, the peasant reader, how Diablo II should be made.
One thing I hated about Diablo was constant fiddling with extra inventory items, picking up individual gold pieces and playing some primitive version of Tetris in my inventory screen. This isn't the time for minigames, Diablo! I am here to slay demons and chew bubble gum! And I'm all out of inventory space for gum. What I propose is to get rid of inventory space all together, pockets should only be used for gold, equip what you find or leave it on the bloodied battlefield.
>A modern setting
Starcraft blew us away recently with the lasers and the mutants and the aliens, pew pew scaaaawrrr *guitar solo*, all that jazz. What if we put Diablo in that futuristic setting in Space? Hack, why not put it in the same universe? have Kerrigan arm-wrestle Diablo to see who is galaxy's biggest, baddest mo-fo. Laser sabers, forcefields, potion injectors, it writes itself and you're not making it, Blizzard? Get your head in the game!
>Brighten up the place
I know we're supposed to be fighting for the fate of the world against the personification of evil itself, but can't we do it in a brightly lit field instead? I mean the sun is probably still up, we can fight demonic spawns with some SPF 5000.
Which one is better? 1st or 2nd
Anon should be fucking imaginary lolis in minecraft, so I like 2nd one.
1st one because of autism and symmetry.
First is so much better. Now post the fonts used so I can painfully retrace this in inkscape.
win95 ms paint or bust
You can write to include how have this game in current year, as in include complains about the newer diablo-style games like path of exile and grim dawn. The style of complains should be 2000s.
I think this kind of write-up "If I could make...." can be used well for any number of games. Other anons can write their own as well.
I can help you with your work as well. What you want? Its roboto font but obviously edited beyond recognition
We need an svg, lad.
>You can write to include how have this game in current year, as in include complains about the newer diablo-style games like path of exile and grim dawn. The style of complains should be 2000s.
Could you rephrase that in english please?
Whom got caught?
"Less is More" edition.
As in, you're better off without it.
>Its roboto font but obviously edited beyond recognition
The Z is roboto? That is indeed edited beyond recognition, how am I gonna trace that?
Maybe I can just use a different font entirely, it's not like anyone is gonna use the logo when it's done anyway.
Ah yes this is comfy.
There has to be a fine print at the bottom that expressly states to not actually buy an Ouya.
I don't know what you are talking about, anon.
Can you even buy one anymore?
go ahead and make fun of whatever grammatical error I've made this time.
If the ouya was modeled after ouya-chan, I would buy one and cum on it..
ebay I guess or a thrift store.
How dare you!
I'm sorry, what? I'd love to try another writing excercise, but I don't really understand what you're proposing.
Do you want me to compare Diablo to PoE or GD as if they were all released in 2000's? Or maybe a scenario where Diablo 2 is in development right now, after PoE, GD and such have already been released, but only complain about elements that were present back in early 2000's? No mentions of microtransactions, no fre to play, no frequent updates...
I don't think I have the brain power to write up a 4D screen play like that.
I meant the 2nd one, with complains of microtransactions and such. By 2000s I meant writing style and tone of 2000s, just like in the above mentioned magazines.
Or just write however you were writing. Its hard communicating while being retarded and sleep deprived
Fake trading cards seems not only pointless but a way to shit up a sweet magazine with kitsch shit that no one is into.
If we really want to be oldschool we can add demo disc ISOs.
do you want the vector itself?
Someone on previous thread made an minimalist ad for PCgamingwiki. I tried to make something like the old ibm ads where they had one statement and then their logo. Which one looks better and how it could be improved?
make something like this the background, make the you into (You) with a font like MS gothic /wo antialiasing, same color of hyptertext links
I can't pick one, but I love it all the same.
Gun to my head? Second.
That's good shit
Go back to tvch, concern shill. Magazine is fun.
I wasn't concern shilling. I was pointing out that ugly fake trading cards are pointless and shitting up a magazine with random cruft will only bring down the quality level.
Second one. No caps and a gradient give it the kind of understated look this kind of ad wants.
I wanted to make a gondola trading card game with original art and card structure as opposed to yugioh cards with random images slapped on them, but that requires more effort and I don't know if anons want to do so.
The world needs more gondola OC.
Tell it to sturgeon, you bad actor.
Gondola is Facebook territory now dude
>Gondola is Facebook territory now dude
Over my dead corpse.
As opposed to your alive corpse?
Sounds a lot better than the Yugioh cards I've seen. I'd easily take that over this.
My alive corpse too. I will rise from the dead to prevent such heresy.
I'll do a template. I'm thinking It could be just the image with the name on top.
Is that alright or should it have a description, attack, defense and such?
I will shit a million burning niggerdicks down you're throat, maggot
another variant due to autrism
Take that back right now
I found out the font closest to ibm's font. Added some old timeyness
If Facebook ever tries to claim Gondola just remind them of his Pedobear origins.
How's the magazine coming along so far overall?
Maybe just a general page, kinda like a "more cool things/facts about the Vita", or a how to get started with a Vita, or a how to adopt a Vita page
I'unno exactly, but either that, or something cool, fun, or just funny like maybe a big old meme; hell, maybe a large spread of ecchi/cropped Vita-tans like a "secret" page might be cool too
I just like the Vita a lot
How about homebrew and emulators? Compatibility, accuracy and all that stuff.
It would not only serve as a magazine page but also as a recommendation chart.
Me too, anon. Me too.
more informational guides would be better. Having recommendation charts, tier list would be fun too
We now have 2 extra ads, a comic strip and a Top 5 list since this thread started.
I would encourage other anons to create some OC in any way shape or form. I tried rewriting that "What if I made Diablo II" article, but I can't wrap my head around conceptualizing "Diablo 2 doesn't exist in the current year, but everything else does and now I write about it as if it was still 2004". I may be over-complicating it, but I can't get it out of my head.
I also have a couple of reviews written up for the next issue because I don't want one anons content to dominate the entire thing. Variety is the spice of life (just remember not to eat ketchup for dinner).
you're gonna write a review of hatred?
I think he's just laughing at the prospect of this project even finishing the first issue, let alone getting another one started and finished.
oh that's retarded, of course it's going to get finished. I believe in anon, don't you?
At least that one has its progress saved. Nobody saved the dragon crown tiles wwwwwwwwwwwwww
You know what was saved though?
Don't care. My dreams may be shattered into a million fine pieces and slip through my fingers, but all it takes is remaking a new one. Meanwhile all you're left with is a weak, bitter, angsty cry. Cope with it Eden. zzzchan is king.
I remember that people didn't like the game because it was bad.
Here's what I have so far.
Is this PG enough?
Don't listen to that nerd, make it less PG.
It looks pretty cute so far, though damn Vita-tan is absolutely tiny compared to Samus
it does make sense given Samus's height but still, damn
I like it though, nice job anon.
If I had to give any personal suggestions, maybe mess around with their eyebrows, lips and nose a bit to change the expression, since they look slightly derpy at the moment, still cute though, and it might turn out looking better when colored but those are just my personal thoughts
Maybe have Samus's left calf a little further out so its like Vita's legs are resting against it, plus I think it would make Samus's pose look a bit stronger, not quite a lunge but close to it,
Could also do more with Samus since she's kinda just standing there, maybe with her left hand on Vita-tan in some way, but I'm not sure what exactly.
I agree with this though, seconded
or at least a lewder alt available for anons to enjoy would be nice
>I agree with this though, seconded
Why does literally everything have to be pornographic? Why does there need to be naked tits and cunts and lolis and whatnot everywhere? Why can't you stop pushing your porn addiction onto everyone? You guys are trained monkeys with brains made of cum and cannot stop thinking beating your meat to the next thing, just like rabbi shekelberg would want, you sicken me. DIE CUMBRAINS
Vita could have slightly plumper thighs and ass, but that's just personal preference.
>naked tits and cunts and lolis and whatnot everywhere
God, I wish.
It seems like anon of zchan is pleased also with neither Samus nor Vita-tan. The art of the direction which he likes was prepared.
Nice twitter meme, upvoted, and sent reddit gold to your account good sir, nevermind the fact you aren't addressing what I said at all cumbrain. Keep embarrassing yourself you porn addicted faggotron.
>why does suggestive thing have to be lewd?
Since when am I forcing anyone to do anything?
I like attractive girls, seeing more of them is generally a plus to me.
Plus, on imageboards where it's allowed, no shit people are going to want it. If the existence of something pornographic out there bothers you this much, you could just not look at it instead of asking me to die for wanting to see more of attractive girls who were already showing off plenty of skin as it is.
>Kamitani shitting on game jsuperglue, from 8 years ago is reddit
Forget giving you the benefit of the doubt, you're some kind of sperg, probably a newfag from cuckchan who thinks spamming "coomer" and nujaks is an "epic own" or something.
>Samus's tits resting on Vita's head
I dunno how journo got turned into "superglue", but that was a typo*
I did address what you said by appropriately calling you a faggot.
>probably a newfag from cuckchan
Definitely, he's already had multiple posts in this thread deleted for being pure cancer.
It's just a image, why you have to be so mad?
If you want to stop acting like a faggot, just shut the fuck up already
nobody cares at this point besides the fact that you loudly sperged out, its up to you how you wanna act
kek, something seriously bothers you anon
Are you a woman or something? This is histrionic, you definitely can't claim that you aren't upset after acting like this.
Why are you even on imageboards if you can't handle the idea of lewdness anyways?
Looks like you took drawing tips from pic related. Really "well done", anon!
>it's taking you this long to solve the captcha
Whatever it is, it seems anything has to be tried to shit up the thread about creating some OC.
Samus looks like she's about to fall over, that's the one thing that bothers me
>Why does literally everything have to be pornographic?
I can't figure out the colors, help me out, I've hit a wall on this one.
Have you tried green and purple?
yes, but with limited success
Maybe put a distorted and with low opacity Burnout 3 image as the background.
mixed results again, but it looks better than what I first made
try stretching this all over at low opacity
An article in the style of If I were to make.... for mirror's edge 2. Though it feels big enough to make it a review
If I were to make Mirror's Edge 2, I would first of all take it from the hands off EA and give it to full and proper DICE. Not the new-employees behind Battlefield Vagina or 2042. The original guys who came up with the idea in-between the cold, hard sessions of working for EA. Have their full vision for the game
While there were no complaints from the story on the first game, it didn't bring anything new on the table, aside from a lame plot twist. So my version of the game will have even less story - you just run because you want to run. You don't need a reason to jump across rooftops 30 stories high, other than you have cops chasing you. Okay maybe have a something to push you around to climb this building or jump off this roof, but you get the point. If it doesn't matter, don't make it matter.
Just as it says. More Faith. More story of Faith. More views of Faith. More of Faith running and jumping.
>Show more of the city
The City, as dystopian as it was, was also cool as a ice - white minimalist backdrop and few but tasteful use of colors makes the skyline have more personality than a tumblr girl. Show the enigmatic highrises of business parks, show the not-so-good residential areas with massive surveillance. Maybe a level through a busy highway where you have to play frogger. Maybe even have the City at night time.
Have levels where you're covering entire blocks of buildings, both on ground and rooftops. The simple fact that you can have a level where you can enter a building, find ways to climb up to the roof, then jump across to a another building, climb down to the ground to enter a secret underground lair, all in one single level, only to discover that there's a much easier way to enter it bypassing all the previous way
>So much more to do
Aside from running around and getting chased, there's so much you can do just with basic premises. Even something boring as pushing buttons at 4 different places can be fun if the ways to reach them are well designed. Infact, having good level design will make every part of the previous game enjoyable
Issue #1 when?
I like it.
I want to make little ztan comic strips but I can't think of any good gamer(tm) jokes
give me some NOW
Start with the fundamentals, like a loss comic, and work your way up
Think of characters that are fun to bully, make fun of, or for her to be around and try to incorporate them in
You can try the most basic of "gamer" jokes, but with a little zest or bile to them.
>Haha, the cake is a lie, bro!
<But your adoption papers aren't.
>Dedicated "Returns" till
>Jamal is at the register
>Person walks up to the register and asks "Well? How long till you leave?"
You could make ztan a lazier garfield who likes sleeping instead of lasagna and vtan who is always sick of her shit.
Create a personification of cake/v/ as have the two of them live together as disgruntled roommates.
No, keep markchan out of our mag.
I already advertised this mag on 8chan.moe, what are you gonna do about it bitch? Implying your magazine would even be finished without their help. No OC comes from zzzchan without help.
USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST Faggot
You people are physically incapable of this shitflinging
Make a comic about her driving a truck all day while sleeping on the wheel and then return home to play truck simulator fully awake.
I like the resemblance to Super Milk Chan, maybe adapt some of the show's skits with ztan and friends and go from there?
>it eat my pic
that's good, I'm pretty sure I've seen this concept somewhere already and I'm not talking about the comic where a german guy comes back from his warehouse job to play Forklift Simulator
you mean definitely not this
No there was a short comic of a german warehouse worker saying how happy he was to get home after a hard days work, and went home to play games like forklift simulator and other games of the same nature. I don't have it but I do remember it.
made my part with space for another one
i still don't believe these simulator games exist
It clearly has an audience (don't you remember kids being super autistic about construction vehicles?) and it's dirt cheap to make new vehicles once you have the physics engine. It's not like it's exclusive to cucked krauts either, PlayStation had a power shovel sim (with custom controller) in the 90s sponsored by Komatsu. IIRC it was basically Octodad with a backhoe where you had to do things like "disarm the bomb" and "put out the fire" with the shovel arm.
It begs the question how easy/profitable is it to make such games. I rember when goat simulator hit there was tons of meme simulators but what about actual effort simulators?
you could shove that half baked "Waht if I could make... Diablo 2" text in there and rename it "Correct opinion"
> power shovel
you weren't kidding...
i'll wait for a more complete version
Does she isekai people into shit video games?
make one about her trying to find video games on /v/ and only finding weirdos and degenerates based on the thread
>looks in fullderp
<nothing but people lusting after pokemon
>looks in the fighting game thread
<nothing but people lusting after feet
>look in the loli games thread
<ztan is in danger
>looks in webm thread
<inexplicably finds vidya
Where do you think you are?
If I could make ... Diablo II
Blizzard has established and proven itself to be a mainstay company, a household name, a Mr. Rogers of video games. It's been around the block and things are only looking up for this independent old dog. Baller. Diablo was a great innovation to the DnD genre of games, adding more direct and adrenaline pumping dungeon-crawling action, a much needed breath of fresh (as fresh as dungeons go) air. They've been teasing Diablo II for a while now and I fail to see how they'll recapture the lightning in a bottle again. That is why I, Anon, will tell you, the peasant reader, how Diablo II should be made.
One thing I hated about Diablo was constant fiddling with extra inventory items, picking up individual gold pieces and playing some primitive version of Tetris in my inventory screen. This isn't the time for minigames, Diablo! I am here to slay demons and chew bubble gum! And I'm all out of inventory space for gum. What I propose is to get rid of inventory space all together, pockets should only be used for gold, equip what you find or leave it on the bloodied battlefield. While other lesser ARPGs have attempted to mend this situation by adding pets (Torchlight) or making mobs drop trash exclusively (Path of Exile). I say less is more. That's what my daddy taught me when we taking a shower together last week.
>A modern setting
Starcraft blew us away recently with the lasers and the mutants and the aliens, pew pew scaaaawrrr *guitar solo*, all that jazz. What if we put Diablo in that futuristic setting in Space? Heck, why not put it in the same universe? Have Kerrigan arm-wrestle Diablo to see who is galaxy's biggest, baddest mo-fo. Laser sabers, forcefields, potion injectors, it writes itself and you're not making it, Blizzard? Get your head in the game!
>Brighten up the place
I know we're supposed to be fighting for the fate of the world against the personification of evil itself, but can't we do it in a brightly lit field instead? I mean the sun is probably still up, we can fight demonic spawns with some SPF 5000. Just look at current spiritual successor and ARPG King crown holder Minecraft Dungeons: bright and colorful visuals and GOTYAY awards for days (get it? cuz it's sunny out)
I want more. I always want more. The other guys on the staff worry about me and keep pestering me with lines like "Anon, it's been 3 weeks" and "You need help!". But I need to keep trucking. The eternal grind and build optimization runs in my blood. I want to do something after beating the devil. Last Epoch lets you relive all the most embarrassing moments in history, Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem turns into a mobile city builder game, and Lula: The Sexy Empire turns into a stressful midlife crisis when you beat the motel. I want randomly generated levels, randomly generated mobs with randomly generated prefixes, set to randomly generated music, all running on randomly generated hardware specs.
had to edit some words in order to fit in the layout properly. Also anyone making articles - use a desktop publishing software and save yourself tons of headache
The page looks a bit too dull, can't you add some pic (semi-transparent maybe) in the back ground to add more color?
I think it looks good as is, but that's what daddy taught me yadda yadda
Looks good as-is, not every article has to be full of graphics.
Mark/v/ is a fucking abomination. Mark's mishandling of /v/ has led to a lot of fucking cancer taking over those boards.
>butthurt and faggotry
Hey, so, what reviews does the magazine have?
Sucking on purpose is still a bad strategy.
Also, what's wrong with zchan mods?
Welp, this thread is going to shit
That's what happens when you "ironically" shitpost to the point of actually doing it I guess
>Looks good as-is, not every article has to be full of graphics.
Yeah, but wasn't the point of this magazine to look like early to mid 2000's gaming magazines?
That looks soulless like current EDGE or Game Informer.
I will shamelessly steal this joke, thanks.
That's some tasty pasta fazool
feels like it needs some kind of text between 2nd and 3rd panel, or a cutaway, something that says "Later" or something for example
That's some good shit.
Grazie, amico anonimo.
La pasta e fagioli è una delizia.
Mi viene l'acquolina in bocca soltanto a pensarci.
>the fucking penn and teller truck game
>only now I notice the missing ponytail
You sure do give CalArts a run for their money!
>Looks like you took board tips from pic related. Really well done, "anon"!
>You sure do give ziggers a run for their money!
Actually, I am the only Eden here
No I'm Eden
I am Eden and I am not leaving.
Edens pussy belongs to ME
Eden's body is free to play.
This looks really good! The polygons are visible in some areas but otherwise this is good... How about making the text all white? Or making the black part pop out a little more somehow?
I'm perfectly fine with visible polygons.
