This is dystopian shit. Any game I play where you can get punished for just calling someone a name has some of the worst communities I've seen. It's like having a gun to your head, and it especially sucks if someone is doing bad and you can't say anything to them. Fuck protecting manchildren who can't handle insults.

Yeah it seems a bit like they are trying to merge Penumbra with the (pre?)WW1 setting of whatever the last Amnesia was. I know they can make the game, I just hope they don't decide to duck making actual threats again like they did in Soma or ducktape a badly written audio drama about childbirth onto the player character.

If they're gonna tack on some muh society garbage for a better ESG score it'll probably be about the 6 gorillion, judging purely from the bunker theme.
But actually getting a way to defend yourself, if it's extremely scarce, doesn't seem like it'd ruin the game for me. Much preferred over limited light shit in the original Amnesia, which I think they're not doing considering they show some windup lamp in the trailer.

>Nintendo apologises for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet performance and pledges improvements
Performance for Scarlet & Violet is abysmal, even for a Switch game. Character models are obviously going to stay, but I doubt they'll even try to fix the low res textures, especially if they want to prioritize performance. I don't see why they wouldn't target the Bethesda-tier bugs since they appear to be extremely prevalent. Especially with shit like falling through the floor, never thought a pokemon game would have that. I give it less then a year before they stop caring and it'll be interesting to see how much of an improvement the game is from its launch.

The moment I've heard they're doing another Amnesia game made me feel nothing, because Rebirth sucked dick (except for some parts of the story), but since you can use a weapon in this  game it might be a decent redemption arc for Frictional. It seems like this is a spin-off to the main story like A Machine for Pigs was, and the story this time is set during WW1. I wonder what fun stuff vitae caused this time.

it's just a tablet with an automated treat dispenser, you could do without the dispenser as long as you're there to feed the treats yourself. matter of fact if you left the dog alone it'd probably spend all day glued to the thing just to eat and it could teach them "machine that looks like this = food" which is bad because then they'd probably try to fuck with random screens and other similar things once you take that away.

So you haven't actually owned a dog, especially a rescue with years of behavioural traits.  "Anxious and hyper" for a dog doesn't mean that the dog sometimes gets jumpy and barks a lot, it means that the dog will see another dog down the street and literally not stop barking or jumping around or tugging at the leash for another half hour.  Is the dog scared?  Angry?  No-one can say.  It is not the kind of issue that "just play with the dog dude" can fix all the time.

You're deflecting from the issue. The dog doesn't get enough exercise so of course it acts like this. You reinforce it's behavior by walking on eggshells and not regularly giving it an outlet for it's energy.
Start giving a shit about your pet instead of treating it like a toy. If it can't handle being around other dogs, animals, or people, take it somewhere less populated to play in order to work out it's stress.
Maybe you need some professional help, try talking to someone who regularly rehabilitates traumatized dogs to get more targeted advice.

Tripwire’s ex-CEO tells Tucker Carlson that cancel culture “destroyed” him
https://archive.ph/D1ede´
>Gibson said his resignation from the company in 2021 left him “destroyed”, that cancel culture is a one-way street generally only affecting those with conservative views.
>The former Tripwire boss tweeted support of a new Texas law that effectively banned abortions after an unborn child’s heartbeat can be heard, which is usually around 6 weeks after conception.
>“Proud of U.S. Supreme Court affirming the Texas law banning abortion for babies with a heartbeat,” he said in a tweet. “As an entertainer I don’t get political often. Yet with so many vocal peers on the other side of this issue, I felt it was important to go on the record as a pro-life game developer.”
>Gibson’s public support of the Texas heartbeat bill got widespread scorn from the majority of gaming websites and pundits, as well as other big names in the industry. For most of them, there is no stance outside of being completely in support of murdering unborn babies.
>“I call it social terrorism. It is an effort to use fear and intimidation to cause people to change,” Gibson said.
>He added, “Either hide or pretend that they’re not what they are, really, so that they can keep their jobs, so they can keep their status. And I just think that’s just a terrible thing for the world.”
>When asked if there was anyone at Tripwire that stood up for Gibson in the wake of a coordinated outrage campaign, the former boss said a “fairly senior” staff was defending him – but ultimately both she and Gibson were outnumbered.
>Gibson also revealed that another one of the co-founders of Tripwire shares very similar beliefs to him, including thinking abortion is wrong.
>“Other people that agreed, they’re afraid to speak up. They don’t want to be next. I had one of the other owners of the company, politically we’re very very aligned. He thinks cancel culture is bad, he thinks abortion is bad, and he said, ‘Yeah, I don’t want to be cancelled next.'”
>Here’s a part of Tucker’s interview with Gibson: >https://piped.kavin.rocks/watch?v=2ERPn7Us50I
>“That’s how this social terrorism works,” Gibson said. “You make people scared, you make their jobs more difficult, you make them worry that people are going to leave the company if they don’t throw the person who disagreed with their political positions out of the boat. She really couldn’t overcome the wave of sentiment of the other folks.”
>Gibson recollected what he said to his wife as everything went down with his departure from Tripwire.
>“I said ‘I just want to die.’ Because I don’t want to live in a world that’s this unjust,” he said. “I got depressed, I got angry, suicidal, not wanting to leave the house. Yeah. It destroyed me. I have lived through thirteen months of hell.”

Actually, older GTAs nailed it pretty good. But yeah, these days open world = artificially amplifying completely linear plots by filling it with long segments where you do nothing but walk/drive in a barren world without anything happening.

Design wise, it's their worst game so far because of the open world shit, but it has the best QoL features. The linear "closed" areas that aren't caves and dungeons with tons of recycled assets are pretty fun to explore, but there's like 6 of them.
>>178156
Good point, older GTAs were good shit. I think the difference is that while GTA had missions and objectives, there were plenty of side paths for bonuses during/outside of missions and travel was extremely fast and easy. GTA was also about doing whatever you wanted and having chaotic fun as you pleased. Were there cops? Sure, and it was always fun to see just how many stars you could get. Modern open world is just filled with chores unfortunately

Sleeping dogs has barebones combat, god awful driving physics and shit shooting.

It starts off great and very detailed and then just rushes to the end, there's no clear progression pacing and you just spawn at random points to advance the plot instead of climbing the Triad ladder, all the density of content and little details found on the Hong Kong slums is also completely absent along with the option to decorate your better apartments.
 it was clear it was rushed out the door and left half baked, shame too.

>Calls Sleeping Dogs' combat "barebones" while every single game he's mentioned has trash, bottom of the barrel tier melee combat except for DD and mediocre at best gunplay.

Guns in SD are extremely strong though, are you dumb? It's because you normally don't have firearms that they've made them very strong for the moments that you do happen to get one.

ER has the issue where it's "just Dark Souls, but open world." The exploration is a gimmick and rather than being integrated within the core gameplay of the franchise, it's almost treated entirely separately. It's the trail you follow in order to get to the actual gameplay, which is lackluster for the most part considering the massively reused assets and repeated content. Open world games already have this issue built in because making mostly unique assets for such a large area would be too much, but ER takes it to an unbearable level. I saw rigs from DeS even. It's been over a decade and From is acting like GF at this point. They're not a small studio doing whatever they can to stay relevant anymore.

Open world is a bad meme.
DDs is literally only playable because they ran out of budget and weren't able to make it an open world so there's actually gameplay once you get past the walking through empty fields forever. It's pretty telling how much more successful the DLC (which is just a dungeon and nothing else) was.
>>178149
Elden Ring is an absolute masterclass in pandering. It takes the souls formula of retard shiteasy bosses that are designed to be hard to learn to it's logical conclusion. That it's a game that's nothing but padding and is overt about it through the open world meme is just a cherry on top.

Never played Mafia 2. But Mafia 1 is not good example at all. The map works for the story since the story missions have go around the map. But by itself there is nothing to do. Between missions you can only go to the mission area and after the mission you can go to 1 single place for sidequests in the entire map, which only has a limited amount of missions and they are all the same.

There's free ride extreme, where you collect a bunch of wacky cars for doing quests. But that's besides the point

It's a game that at least works better being open-world than linear. For what it lacks in content it makes up with it's function. When it comes to open-world games, it's harder to communicate to players as to what they need to do. In a linear game, you're restricted to certain paths, and in sandbox levels like Hitman and Thief, which are more cerebral, the levels are still designed and restrained in a way where you can understand how everything relates to each other. Open-world games have a challenging time defining the playspace when a level is set in a much larger one and often resort to UI-based navigational aides like waypoints, compasses, and minimaps. Mafia still does this better than most games today by providing literal signs so you know where you're driving and a transit network that can get you to most of or at least near the important in-game locations. These are the things that make Mafia memorable, not because the gameplay or the content is exceptional, but because the content itself or getting to the content requires engagement in the world.

I'm not going to address the le newfag argument, as that's just a Kafka trap where 'yes'='lolno' and 'no'='lol yeah', and it's quite a pointless argument considering what I believe matters nowadays, is not necessarily the newness of the faggot, but the retardation he shows, which I fully accept being called a retard because in many ways I am. 
But I don't think you're quite getting what I'm aiming for. In that case, let me drop the retardation for the sake of something resembling a smart discussion. See, I've been wracking my brain for the past few weeks on why imageboards have been dying, and the answers I've come up with is that 1) we've fallen into this rut of trying desperately to avoid stepping on eggshells so spergs don't shit up the board, 2) our whole memescape, for lack of a better word, has become stale and bland, mostly because of 1), but also because we're stuck on recapturing the glory of 8chan instead of trying to capture new glories, and 3) we've let ourselves be way too uptight, again because of 1) and 2). Therefore, the whole arguments with the emoticons was half-baked shitpost to try and make the faggots upset at emoticons even more mad, but also something of an experiment to see how I can push new ways to express in the imageboard landscape.
Obviously, it seems emoticons are not the preferred way. In that case, I shall focus my efforts on other means of memeing, preferably through discussing vidya playthroughs I'm doing (when I have the time), simple doodles (for I am not a good drawfag), and funnier shitposts. If you feel my response is ridiculous, then I shall accept that with enough grace and move on. If you feel it is subversive, then do note that this is done in the name of attempting to revitalize imageboard discussion, not in the name of shitting where I eat, so to speak. Thank you for your attention, and I hope you have a nice day, anon. 

With warm regards,

If you can be addicted to a game, you can be addicted to literally anything.
Not that i'm saying its incorrect, gaming addiction is absolutely real for koieans. But by this logic you could theoretically sue anything that causes an addiction.
For example, "Anon is addicted to dicks, it is harming his life, therefor anon can sue the gaybar he visits."

A legal case over Gaming addiction is a result of people unable to accept personal responsibility. In this case its the parents fault. This is like a mother complaining that her children refuse to eat anything else except McDonalds but continuously buy it for them anyway. fucking retarded

Still, you could argue that certain games use gambling methods, like loot boxes and other cancerous things, to farm from players. I think these things should be banned if they're causing the addictions, i don't think there needs to be a lawsuit at all. Honestly this lawsuit feels shady, like theres some kind of underlying conspiracy behind it. I dunno, feels like its the sort of prerequisite before they put in daily game time limits like China.
Also yeah, its probably propaganda.

The question should be over whether video game overuse manifests the same behaviours as other addictions (sensitisation/desensitisation etc). Otherwise, their claim is that these children are having too much fun. As you say, it's a parenting failure because they don't want to or can no longer say no to their kids.Or they don't want to take an interest in the things their kids like and get involved in actually doing something together. Parents don't need "industry-leading parental controls that empower parents to supervise their child’s digital experience" because they're physically there with them in the same house. They could barge into their son's room and see for themselves what he's doing. But it's easier to blame something else when your neglectful parenting goes wrong and turn your problems into a pathology.

Fortnite was probably made to be as addicting as possible.

>In August, California lawmakers killed a bill that would “make it illegal” for major social media platforms to “knowingly addict children,” after significant lobbying pressure from Twitter, Meta, and Snap.

I don't know. I've never played it. Gambling in video games is a big problem but I'm not so sure I would want the government getting involved and gaining more of a precedent to meddle with them. I think that would be replacing one problem with another one. My point was that the natural direction this will go is that having a socially frowned upon hobby will become an addiction and there will be a push by at least some people to make video games explicitly less fun and more propaganda. This time with the think-of-the-children excuse.
Even if it's not for real money, I still think it's gambling. In-game rewards are still things of real value to the gambler even if it's not money. That's the criterion in at least some jurisdictions.

Most games do that these days, which is why most contemporary AAA games aren't actually games but Skinner boxes and casinos dressed up in the bare minimum of gameplay.  Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world and it sure as hell didn't get there by being fun to play: it makes you angry, it's easy to find games, it's easy to abuse by building stuff, and you always have the prospect of a victory dangling in front of you.  Diablo Immortal is another clearcut case of this, since it was actually structured in such a way as to introduce a couple minutes of gameplay between paying for a currency and getting a collection of semi-random items, which skirts the legal definition of a loot box, which means they don't need to disclose the percentage chances of any particular item.
>ulterior motives and conspiracy
I've no doubt the mothers pushing the case are awful parents, but the potential fallout will be entertaining.  The "Star Wars-themed casino" propaganda five years ago for Battlefront 2017 probably resulted in a meaningful amount of people waking up to the problem of "games" designed to be addictive.
>I think these things should be banned if they're causing the addictions, i don't think there needs to be a lawsuit at all.
How do you think change is effected in bloated modern legal systems?  Nobody who has regulatory authority over video games knows anything about how they work or how people play them.

>>179393
>Its not universally addictive.
*It's
These systems literally have hundreds of millions of dollars poured into them to make them as compelling as possible.  In the same way that "you are not immune to propaganda," you are not immune to a game designed to encourage patterns of behaviour that prey upon universal human tendencies.  The publishers who force this shit down everyone's throats are smart enough not to put big "become a wirehead" buttons in the games, but if every minor gameplay experience has some kind of wirehead-like behaviour attached to it then the fate of anyone who plays the game is sealed.  This is especially true for children and teenagers whose brains are still growing and who don't have the same kind of mental defences that adults have.

I mean you're not wrong in that it's highly addictive. And it is trying to prey on general human tendencies. But it is not universally addictive. Universally addictive would imply the majority of children who played it are now addicted. I refuse to believe that many children could be so retarded.

On a side note, the only games that entertain me anymore were made before 2007. I've gained more entertainment from games produced prior to my birth than from games coming out now.

Did you know sex and exercise can be as equivalent addicting as drug dependency? Or you think swallowing something does not excrete dopamine the same way?
Games work exactly the same way as exercise in how your brain rewards itself for suceeding at something nagging you. For these adults and kids playing Fornite, it's as addicting as cheese and oreos, because the motor hand eye cordination of getting a win at a lotto with notifications gives the same high as casomorphins locked in your dopamine receptors. But classifying children with heavy withdrawal symptoms not “hard as drug” is apparently the parents' fault, as if they created the damn game.

Capitalism was a mistake. Kids also have 4G now so there's no way to keep them away from 24/7 internet access.

People generally choose the path of least resistance.  The average millennial/zoomer has plenty of free time and will gladly spend hours watching Twitch or TikTok, but the idea of spending that time to stimulate his brain and do something productive is totally unheard of.

It's not just the content, it's the shape of the content that the platform uses.  Every social media platform is an endless scrolling conveyor belt that force-feeds you a truly endless amount of mindless mush.  Tumblr (maybe Imgur?) was, to my knowledge, the first platform to popularize this kind of approach and it's been very successful because people are lazy.  Same reason people will spend $50 a week on junk food in $5 purchases, but the idea of not buying junk food and spending $50 on groceries that will last twice as long and be healthier is "too expensive."

That may have been true pre-Gamergate, but around the time niggers came to Europe Jewtube's personalization AI rapidly realigned itself so hard its previously accurate suggestions in my case uncommentated gameplay videos, WW2 flight simulator stuff, YTPs, old Linkin Park AMVs, 2hu arranges and the occasional Let's Play from a channel I was subscribed to became filled with soyfaces, weird random porn inserts I do not believe were coincidental and just shit that plainly shouldn't belong in the recommended section of a Billy Mays YTP let alone my damn front page.
The soyfaces I can partially attribute to the Let's Play channel I was subscribed to being one of the then-popular ones(though his content at the time didn't specifically target elementary schoolers unlike now), but all the other shit like those disturbing toy review videos made and consumed by people without any sexual inclinations towards children simply shouldn't have appeared in the quantity they did or at all throughout 2015.
By 2016 those heretical videos had seen mysterious jumps in views so other channels who by this point had to e-beg on every video thanks to Jewgle cutting their ad revenue after making sure they couldn't find employment elsewhere adopted their practices too and it all became filthy, the dup campaign funny as it was didn't help because now presidental campaign faggotry showed up in the recommendations next to impressionist Spengbab YTPs though the algorithm had trouble figuring whether I was pro or anti-dup as I'd long stopped commenting on anything by that point, so whenever I was watching a pro-dup video it spammed anti-dup videos and vice versa when watching anti-dup videos.
It's not like my tastes in video abruptly changed, the algorithm had been working smoothly for the 7 or so years I'd been using that account but then it started throwing Elsa abortion videos at World of Tanks gameplay footage.
The last straw that made me fully migrate to /v/'s webm threads was when suddenly three quarters of the channels I was subscribed to started putting in those FUCKING JEWNIGGER HERETIC ANIMATIONS WITH THE SUBSCRIBE BUTTON BEING CLICKED MID-VIDEO, DO THEY THINK I'M SOME SOY ADDLED CONS**MER SITTING IN A SENSORY DEPRIVATION TANK WITH A SMARTPHONE GLUED TO MY HEAD FOLLOWING WHATEVER SUGGESTIVE INSTRUCTION I SEE OR WAS THE ALREADY CUCKED "like, comment and subscribe to my bideo pls" MANTRA REPEATED AT THE END OF EVERY VIDEO BY JEWTUBE SLAVES PARTNERS SOMEHOW NOT ENOUGH?
THIS FUCKING BULLSHIT EVEN SHOWED UP ON VIDEOS FROM CHANNELS WITH SMALL SUBSCRIBER NUMBERS, IRREGULAR UPLOADS WITH LONG STRETCHES BETWEEN VIDEOS AND LITTLE TO NO COMMENTARY AT ALL, WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED?

Dead Island 2 Trailer Welcomes You To ((( Hell )))
https://archive.vn/Vj0TZ
>Today, a brief trailer for the upcoming Dead Island 2 had been released, hilariously titled “Welcome to Hell-A” given the game takes place in the faggotized crime ladled city of Los Angeles, naturally of course the trailer is full of woke bullshit being shoveled down our necks.
>Not even a minute goes by in the trailer and we’re subliminally brainwashed with a pride flag street crossing on full display, untainted and untarnished, like it had just been painted during the middle of a zombie apocalypse.
>Despite how previous Dead Island installments gave you the ability to choose between a singular white character alongside either a black man or a black woman, rest assured that Dead Island 2 has bumped nigger normalization to the maximum, with majority of the NPCs you’ll encounter in game being some form of “minority” ethnicity if the trailer is anything to go by.
>You can obviously see that one of the playable characters you’ll be encouraged to play as in Dead Island 2 is a black man, but this is the current year, it’s not woke enough, skipping to 1:50 in the trailer and you’ll be blessed with progressiveness.
>That’s right, for maximum brownie points in my zombie crusher game you’ll more than likely be able to select an amputee woman to play as in Dead Island 2.

I don't get how they're able to do this. Do they get permission from Nintendo to create more cartridges for the NES? Do they have to go through nintendo to have them churn out the cartridges? Are the rights on how to make said cartridges publicly known to the point that they can just have some other place make them? If it were for an emulator, then it'd make more sense for people to make games for older systems since you can just slap the rom in the program and there you go. But actually producing new cartridges seems like a cluster fuck.

It's piss easy anon, they're literally ROM chips on a simple ass PCB. People have been making unofficial cartridges since before the SNES launched. There's even faggots selling predesigned PCBs, but if you want anything more custom for more memory or something it doesn't take a whole lot of intelligence to design it yourself and send it off to some chink service like PCBWay.
Getting plastic shells molded is probably more effort than getting the chinks to produce PCBs for you these days.

You just have to print a self-adhesive label, stick on the cartridge, and done. And I'm sure you can get way better deals if you look a bit more and buy in bulk.
Worst case scenario, you can probably 3D print them too.

Man this is some extreme angst-posting right there. I don't even really disagree with the discussion in so far that social structures are in a sorry state but this waxing on about how you "don't need no one and nothing" and how humans are bad is actually childish. Refraining from certain "modern", for a lack of a better term, things is a decent start but if that is all you do you just made yourself expendable, and contrary to your claim they can and will come for you and force you to be useful to them somewhere. To actually have some semblance of security from and distance to the system you need to actually put effort into skills and resources and for that you will need other people one way or the other but your post implies that you don't know that and conversely don't have much power over yourself.
It is pretty apparent when you consider the coof situation: The people who invested into skills to make them more independent managed, those who also had an established social nets that consisted of aligned people fared way better than the former and those that had even better connections could outright ignore it.

“He wanted complete control of storylines”: Henry Cavill Accused of Causing So Many Problems on ‘The Witcher’ Set Netflix Was Tired of Him, Forced to Fire Him

>He is deeply addicted to video games, to the point where it was like working with any other addict. He was distracted, he was late, he was obsessive, and a lot of people think the misogyny came from the gamer world. Video game bro language is not how you talk to coworkers, and he wouldn’t stop. Someone on the show compared it to watching someone get brainwashed by QAnon, like his whole personality shifted. Eventually, his disrespect escalated.

>He is deeply passionate about video games, to the point where it was like working with a genius. He was ovewhelmed, he was tardy due tonir, he was obsessive (how is this bad), and a lot of people think critical thinking came from the gamer world. Gamer dialect gets under the skin of those who hate videogames, and he wouldn’t stop. Someone on the show compared it to watching someone get brainwashed by the most wildcard example we can think of to validate our bias on why we dislike him, like his whole personality shifted against ours. Eventually, his disagreements escalated and we refused to compromise because we are self-absorbed cunts who immidiately shriek the moment we see someone with our traits be more competent and caring than us.

Given that even the normalfags were not liking the later episodes of the Witcher, this'll only backfire when the show's quality dives further off the cliff and they'll know Cavill was the only roadblock left to this.

It's UE4 so it will both play and look like shit. The UE4 engine revolves around the expectation of using combinations of AA techniques to make it look clean.
This is why most textures in UE4 games take advantage of dithering and weird geometry especially in shadows so that when AA is applied you get smooth gradations. motion blur, screen filters, and other efffects also help this.

When they do this the games end up looking (and playing) like a movie, but looking closely at anything, or turning off effects like motion blur breaks the illusion and you see everything is blurry and textures arent sharp and nothing is clean looking.

These games can look good far away and on a TV and at a fixed 30 or 60 framerate, which is what i think the engine was made for.

Pick one and only one. No amount of config editing can make UE4 looks presentable. At best you can reduce but not remove the vaseline at the cost of disabling AA and a bunch of other post-processing.
