Recommend good indie vidya or rant about pozzed shit.
I been playan some good stuff:
>Zortch
This game fucks. Is the only instance I can think of, of a game doing the 90s/early2000s look right. No modern lighting, no pixelated textures, no bullshit. Just pure quake-like goodness and busty babes. Gameplay is fast-paced without unnecessary complex mechanics. It oozes personality, from the graphics, to the SFX, to the fun enemies.   My only grudge is that the music is just atmospheric with no tunes to rock with. I listened to old metal while playing which I recommend doing.
Overall, I recommend it a lot. Full-game is out on itch.io. Releases June 8th on steam.

Max regular health is 200% but there are special items that allow you to get it up to 400-500% though it slowly decreases back to 200 with time.
Demo's on itchio without DRM.

I can see the head thing but the rest seems fine to me.
Colors aren't too dissimilar from a gunpla, lack of shading doesn't ruin the picture and I like big nips.
Maybe colors could be more saturated.

She's meant to look like she's wearing a hat.
This is an oddball request, but has anyone tried or played Dungeons of Aether?  It's a roguelite spinoff of the anthro/furry smash clone Rivals of Aether.  I mentioned it a bit in the Rivals of Aether thread last year: >>159877

I normally would have stopped caring about the game, but it seems to have had absolutely no fanfare, and its player numbers have been pitiful according to Steam.  It doesn't even have the obligatory videos from desperate third string YouTubers (except for one male Vtuber), which means it must have flown seriously under the radar.

The gameplay loop seems to be a standard roguelike setup, but with a battle system that involves a dice draft at the start of each turn.  It's almost enough to get me interested, but I'm totally full on roguelikes so I have almost no desire to play it myself.

Intro
Do you suppose "movement-based 3D platformer with anthro protagonist" will get some catchy genre name?  I don't like calling them mascot platformers unless the character is actually a mascot.  Anyway, I just finished Pseudoregalia.  It's a really good game that released a few months ago which I only discovered due to a YouTuber covering it in a grab bag video (sadly the only reliable way to know what games actually release these days).

You play as a cat-bunny-goat lady named Sybil and explore a dreamy, surreal world with 3D platformer retro graphics.  The game bills itself as a metroidvania but that's just become normalfag shorthand for "has exploration" - it's mostly just a 3D platformer where you can go in any direction you want.  There are abilities that allow you to progress through the game world in different ways, and there aren't specific routes that you have to follow, although there are definitely a few abilities that are used more than others.  I think I used the power attack maybe four or five times in the entire game, including the spot where I got it, but the wall kick and wall run can be used almost anywhere.

Technical
Pseudoregalia is a retro-inspired game, which normally means the developers cobble together some store assets and slap a pixel filter over them, but in the case of this game's developer he didn't bury the game in garbage.  The textures are definitely lower resolution than they perhaps should be, and it definitely doesn't conform to any particular console specs, but the game only has two retro options: a fuzz filter and a frame rate limiter (I never saw a difference for the latter).  Overall it runs very well at both 60FPS and 120FPS.  I only encountered a single crash (due to killing multiple enemies and stacking too many hit-sprites on top of each other, presumably) but that was an outlier likely due to my computer having been on for a long time.

The game performs very solidly and doesn't have any serious bugs that I encountered.  The only bug that affected my progress was a particular sloped roof in one area that prevented me from jumping onto it, which made me think there was an invisible wall over that particular building.  In truth, you can easily access that rooftop by approaching from another side, and from there you can get to a collectable residing on the top.

Movement
The main draw to Pseudoregalia is its movement.  You start with nothing but a jump and a backflip, but by the end you'll have a slide, a slide leap, wall kicking, wall running, a super jump, an air backflip, and a few other goodies that I won't get into since they're much more fun to discover for yourself.  The kinesthetics are incredibly good, and the simple inherent joy of moving around the world and stringing jumps together is the single biggest appeal of the game.

Sybil has a wonderful momentum to her, and the game uses analog movement so you have a very fine degree of control over exactly where she moves and how much she slides on landing and so forth.  If you played Super Smash Bros Melee as a kid like I did and were infected with an insatiable desire to move well in video games, then Pseudoregalia scratches that itch wonderfully.  Once you get to grips with the various power-ups you can easily start visualizing lines moving through the world, and mentally planning out how to spend your various abilities to end up where you need to.  It is incredibly satisfying.

Exploration and Aesthetic
The dream world aesthetic runs through the entire game, and helps to excuse some of the nonsense video game/amateur 3D environments which would otherwise draw attention to themselves.  The castles and houses don't make logical sense because it's a dream, so they feel more like images of castles and houses and I'm not bothered by the extremely low poly count.  The environments themselves are not really that complicated, but being able to scrabble over almost every ledge and wall makes them feel a lot more explorable.

There isn't much of a story, which is nice because it doesn't get in the way, and exploration is left to the player to manage.  There is no map, and only the bare minimum of tracking your collectable progress in that they appear on the pause menu once you've collected them.  If you find a locked door and want to search for a key, you'll have to make a mental or physical note of that yourself and come back later.  Keys are interchangeable so you can take something you find in one area and use it to progress in another.

Combat isn't very deep so the game doesn't have many enemies beyond types that run at you and attack or that stay back and shoot.  There are some really neat designs like the swords that fling themselves at you and get stuck in the ground, and some of the power-ups you collect will encourage you to think about when you spend your mana/power/whatever on healing vs keeping it stockpiled for later.  You can definitely feel the Dark Souls and Hollow Knight influences in the game insofar as managing your healing and magic.

Personally, I love the feeling of exploration and being left to my own devices; one of the things I enjoyed about the Souls games was the large portions of raw gameplay that were only briefly interrupted by cutscenes or story beats, and Pseudoregalia feels the same way.  There are exactly two cutscenes, one at the start and one at the end, which last for a total of perhaps 45 seconds.

Sybil is pretty.  She has a nice butt and legs.  I like how some of the power-ups you acquire appear on her as items of clothing, but I also appreciate the dev giving you the option to enable or disable each one of them.  There are also a couple alternate costumes, one of which is available at the start if you're some kind of faggot who wants to put stupid-looking pants on Sybil.

Problems
The game is very specific and won't appeal to everyone, but even if it does appeal to you then there is one issue which may cause aggravation.  The game treats each room as a distinct challenge, and each door into/out of a root is opaque until you walk up to and through it.  This was likely done to help with rendering load and occlusion, but the simple fact I couldn't see into the next room from one room made it hard for me to mentally map the environment compared to something like, well, Dark Souls.  Quite a few rooms are nothing more than platforms in the middle and doors on the edges, and while the developer obviously tried to separate them by layout and color palette it doesn't always work.  Some of them just look really similar to one another and you can get lost even if you put in a lot of effort to make a good mental map.

Summary
Pseudoregalia is a great game with good visuals and a cute girl for a low price - about $5 USD.  I had a look at the developer's Twitter profile and he doesn't seem to be a faggot (more than the usual furfaggotry, if that bothers you) so I don't regret buying the game.  But regardless of whether you plan to give the developer money or not, you should definitely find the time to play Pseudoregalia.

Corn Kidz 64 released today.  I only heard about it yesterday from the Pseudoregalia dev's Twitter but it looked neat enough for me to buy and try it.  The dev for this one (BogoSoft - https://www.bogozone.net/index.html) has apparently been active since the early 00s so he has a good track record, and his Twitter profile doesn't indicate he's insane.  His website describes Corn Kidz 64 as a "very belated follow-up" to Lyle in Cube Sector, a game from 2006, although I'm not sure if that's just a joke.

The game is a retro 3D platformer like Banjo-Kazooie, but unlike BK it doesn't have a ton of worthless collectables and meaningless transformations.  The game advertises 2 large worlds to explore and a lot of smaller rooms and challenges, which is how I prefer games to be made.  You control a goat lad named Seve (not Steve, Seve) who is trying to get infinite nachos inside a dream, assisted (?) by his friend-who-is-a-girl Alexis.

The movement mechanics are a lot less snappy than Pseudoregalia but the sense of impact and weight is really good.  Damaging enemies, walking around, falling onto stuff, picking up things - it all feels really nice and there are good sound effects for everything.  You have a dashing headbutt and a wall jump, but you can combine them in fun ways since you have a lot of control over what angle Seve jumps off the wall at, and you can headbutt in the air, on the ground, or as a high jump.  It feels like a modern implementation of the "do a lot with a little" philosophy that early 3D games had.

The only quirk I've encountered so far was the game logic being tied to frame rate, so enabling vsync in the starting options menu doubled the game logic and made it run twice as fast because the game is meant to be locked at 30FPS.  Corn Kidz is trying to be more retro than Pseudoregalia was, which means you can't rebind any controls, you can't use a keyboard, you can't customize how the camera behaves (either both axes are inverted or neither is), and you can't fiddle with resolution and graphics options.

According to the Steam page:
>!!CONTROLLER REQUIRED!! XBOX, PS4/5, Switch Pro, Steam Deck all supported (it is still possible to try to play with the keyboard but pain will ensue)
>locked at 30fps (probably should've been 20fps to be more obsessively accurate but you'll just have to be burdened with those extra 10 frames I'm afraid)
>not very modernized at all (but does support dual analog, widescreen and stereoscopic 3D)

So it's a bit of a mixed bag technically, but the hour I played at the start was promising.  I'll report back with more once I'm finished.

I finished Corn Kidz after about 6 hours.  I'll probably spend another hour combing the environments for collectables to unlock a final door, but I'm very happy with what I got for my money.

Minus the fuzz filters and a consistent high frame rate, CK really feels like something that could have released in the 5th console generation.  The game isn't bullshitting about being a throwback to N64 platformers: while lots of modern faux-retro games have aped the style of old games, few of them have imitated the sensibilities (or have done a bad job like Yooka-Laylee).  These games have a retro graphical style and low resolution textures but are mechanically targeted at 30-year-olds who have been playing video games since the 90s and are familiar with every type of trick and genre tradition known to man.  Movement-focused platformers are particularly vulnerable to overindulging their mechanics and feeling too much like a video game.
>here's a mechanic
>here are the obligatory introductory things you do with this mechanic [mandatory collectable]
>here's a twist on the mechanic [mandatory collectable]
>here's a side challenge area where the mechanic is stretched [optional collectable]
>here'a a suspiciously almost accessible area which you will obviously have to return to [optional collectable]
>we wouldn't want you to have to, y'know, learn how the world fits together, so here are copious fast travel points sprinkled through each environment
>here's a running tally of every single collectable and a detailed log of every quest and an objective marker telling you where to find it

It gets a little overbearing sometimes.  CK is different in that everything is open all the time, and your moveset doesn't change much.  The first area is just a big playground with a couple smaller environments, the second area is MUCH larger and has a lot more focused environments accessible through it, and the third area is a linear set of challenges.  That's it.  All killer, no filler.

There's a special challenge level to unlock if you collect enough stuff in the overworld, which is a nice touch since the level itself is genuinely really challenging.

I have to give special credit to Wolloh's Owlloh's Hollow, the largest environment where most of the game takes place.  There are a ton of different things you can do here, and every part of the environment has some ledge you can grab or some kind of object to get your attention.  If you've ever played The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and remember Windfall Island where most of the townsfolk could be found, the Hollow is very reminiscent of that.  The number of places you need to visit to get all the collectables mean you'll be running through every area two or three times from different angles, and that you're more likely to notice things you might have missed the first time.  Most of the puzzles walk a line between not having obvious solutions, but having a very obvious hint as to how you can combine things in the game world to solve them.  This isn't a game where you'll be sequence breaking a lot, but when you put 2 and 2 together it'll feel really good.

Rather than freedom of combining movement options, you have a very simple moveset that is extremely punchy to do: headbutt/airdash, wall jump, ground pound, various wall clings.  The headbutt impact in particular is extremely heavy and produces a great THUD sound, as does falling from too high and taking fall damage.  You get exactly two power-ups, one of which is simply to save time and let you manually reset to a checkpoint when you miss a jump instead of having to wait until you hit the floor.  Maximizing travel distance can allow you to move through a level faster or to skip the occasional platform, but when you reach the later parts of the game things become significantly more challenging.  Do you know exactly how each of your character's moves behaves?  Do you know the difference between a running jump and a standing jump?  Do you know about the teensy bit of extra height you can get when you scrabble up a wall before falling down it?

Despite how linear most of the challenge sections are, they feel suitably challenging because each one has this feeling of finality over it: you absolutely cannot save yourself if you miss a jump or put your abilities together in the wrong way, and it's a long way down if you don't get where you need to go.  This is all cranked up to 11 in the obligatory post-game challenge area, which I still have yet to beat.

You can tell BogoSoft truly cares about 3D platformers and video games, which makes sense for someone who's been active since the early 2000s.  Corn Kidz 64 doesn't really do anything that would be out of place in an N64 game, and that's the beauty of it.  This game takes the idea of a 3D platformer and polishes it to a mirror sheen.

I wrote these posts a few days ago before uploading them, and I wanted to expand on Corn Kidz.  I have gone on a long, dark journey that is 100% completion.  I thought the Anxiety Tower unlocked at level 5 experience was my reward for perseverance, but I was wrong.  Oh, how wrong I was.

There are secret collectables that are so secret the game doesn't even bother tracking them until you find one.  They're hidden in places you would never think to look - one is even hidden out of bounds around a corner in the tutorial area, and you need to avoid a giant enemy chasing you in order to make it there in time.  There's a secret area where you use these secret collectables to unlock doors and progress deeper into a 3D maze of liminal hallways containing eerie 3D models, old dev environments, and unlockable costumes.

oh hey the dev played pseudoregalia; that's neat
isn't it kind of funny how two retro 3D platformers with anthro goat characters released in the same year? ah well

Then there's a level 6 door.  You can only open it by 100%-ing the game.  I have 359/360 XP cubes.  There is no way to find XP except to see it for yourself.  There is no way to check your completion percentage except by climbing the Anxiety Tower again.

10/10 will doubtless enjoy becoming a schizo searching for the final tiny XP cube somewhere out there

Why?

>>223017
The concept you and the other guy are describing is human male on female anthro (HMoFA), which has some overlap with xenophilia (wanting to fuck aliens, nonhuman things, etc. - usually just the xcom viper).  The term "furry" used to mean having a fursona and wanting to fuck anthro ladies and dudes but as the internet has become an ocean of pornography and it has become easier to see any individual part without being a member of a particular in-group, the label has mostly become detached from the anthro lady stuff.  That's what I've seen, at least.

Given the sheer volumes and relative quality of furry porn I never really thought most people were opposed to its creation inherently, especially when worse stuff exists.  The stigma is usually reserved for the insufferable faggots who create it since their desire to replace themselves with cartoon animals often indicates a deep-seated sense of shame for themselves, which is reflected in their vile personalities.

Turns out the last XP cube was hidden behind the chimney in the the house in the graveyard's attic, and due to the fixed camera angle it is totally invisible.  A cruel trick by the developer which cost some poor bastard on the Steam forums at least a dozen hours of his life.

The final secret area is pretty neat, most notably for the dev room you can access and run around in.  I think it's cool how the developer turned something like that into a little challenge for true completionists.

Andres Guerrero/AndyL4nd released a proper trailer for Endacopia, a surreal horror adventure game he's been developing for a few years.  Should be releasing sometime in 2024 or Soon™.

He's done the art for a couple other games, notably Olive's Art-Venture which is a short top-down shooter which you control with the mouse (or a drawing tablet) to paint shapes for special attacks.  His work looks tumblr-core and le so quirky but I've been paying attention to him for several years and he doesn't seem to be more of a faggot than most artists.

People have been making adventure games since Zork, and they were very common in the days of personal computers like the Commodore 64 and its predecessors.

Pull Stay' Early Access is set to release in 2 days.
For those of you who don't know. It's a game made by a hikkimori that's been in development for 6 years all by himself I believe.
The game looks like asset flip stank but I think it gives it a charming look and the demo was quite fun.
I may get it if the price is not too high.

I played Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos on the highest difficulty and it sucks. The hitpoints function oddly, at least on that mode. You get hit once and lose about half your health, then you get hit again and lose another third. Essentially, you can only ever take 3-4 hits without healing. That means all the max HP upgrades are a red herring (although the same upgrade tree gives more health from healing sources, which are probably worthwhile).

Anyway, the game basically plays like a very clunky version of A Link to the Past. As in, almost all of the equipment is directly aped from that game. It's fairly easy, but a lot of deaths feel cheap. I have walked into a room and instantly died because an enemy was spawned on me. It also has co-op, but apparently it's still buggy to this day. One big piece of advice for accelerating progression to anyone who tries it: always buy the elevator shortcuts. Lower floors drop more of the upgrade currency (e.g. dungeon 1 floor 2 drops more than dungeon 1 floor 1, dungeon 2 floor 1 drops more than dungeon 1 floor 3, etc), which you lose most of upon trying to re-enter a dungeon after having died.

There are a couple collectathons I recall. One is fishing and the other is finding 100 orbs hidden across the world. What's strange is the orbs upgrade your dungeon currency retention between dungeon attempts, but it only ever goes up to 25% and you're almost done with the game by the time you collect them all.

There are also some other classes to unlock, which presumably scale with certain equipment better, but the sword is just so good that there's not much reason to play anything except a melee class. In my experience, thief was piss-easy as you can stealth for backstab damage.

Probably a 4/10. Has a lot of cool concepts and systems, but dogshit implementation. After playing this, I wish I had just played A Link to the Past again.

In more ways than one
Building a high end PC then was like maybe $2-3k, now it's $5-6k,  though the good "price perf" price point hasn't degraded as badly
Modern games still run like trash on a top of the line modern PC, like 1080p/60 not stable tiers of trash granted Crysis on period correct hardware wasn't much better

Nowadays you build a powerful PC because shitty devs can't optimize so you have to power through, even indies run into that issue.
Hell probably the only reason I see a good PC being really worth is if you've fell into some endless autism pit of a game that also happens to run like shit for one reason or another like Starsector / Rimworld / Dorf Fort etc

That is if they survive, they have many poor design decisions that greatly impairs their ability to not catch on fire.
Nvidia is a specialist when it comes to skimping on power delivery in one way or another, on the 30 series they fucked up by separatign and under sizing the MSVDD rails ones so worst case scenario you could end up with MSVDD pulling 100W at 0.7-1.2v on a VRM that can only handle 100-140A (Protip: this is very bad, you want loads under 50% on your VRM, ideal is 20% and under), made especially bad when they used couple phases where one phase  is gonna get slammed with the whole load everytime (so you're asking ~80A out of a power stage that might not even be rated for it, no need to tell you that if over 50% load is bad, 100% + is absolutely terrible)

Nope, all the way to the 3090, I think the 3090ti is spared but I'm not 100%
40 series doesn't have "that" specific issue because the VRM is unified and paired phases are gone, also the cards themselves are much less power hungry, but like you pointed some 3rd party still find ways to fuck that up, mostly it's just bad 12VHPWR connectors (though lets be fair if you're not pulling over 300W it's not gonna matter as much) and for some ungodly reason VRMs that go under the reference design recommended capacity for the 4090 and other when the reference design (reference isn't FE, FE is crazy good actually) is kind of just barely enough if you're gonna do anything that isn't pure stock operation

no? it's certainly more expensive now but you can get a brand new, top spec rig for around 4k or even less if you buy at the right time from the right vendors to get good deals. you only get in the 5 to 6k ballpark if you want the best of the best, say an rog 4090, significantly more expensive than a 4090 from a "cheaper" brand like gigabyte, or highest tier mobos and cases for the extra ports and features which at the end of the day don't affect your performance at all. high end you can still easily get in the 2 to 3k range.

you can have a top of the line rig without blowing money on overpriced things or what's essentially bragging rights with no real use case. you just filtered by highest price and clicked random shit to fit your 5 to 6k criteria. you can make a machine with comparable specs, if not better in some cases for way less, and there's still plenty of room for cutting corners here and there further dropping the price.

They're binned, as in they select the chip that are of higher quality (clocks better at the same power / uses less power at the same clocks)

The VRM is on the upper tier of VRMs

I feel like i lost the silicone lottery on this one, but can still undervolt by alot.
My 3080ti FE by default only boosts to around 1800mhz at around 900mv. It doesn’t stay there long but that could be an airflow issue. Once it hits 83c it throttles down to fluctuations between 1350-1600mhz and stays around 900mv.
I undervolt it at 1650mhz@750mv which keeps it around 65-70c. Which i feel like is a good amount. If i go any higher in mhz it gets unstable without raising mv. But when i do that the temp will climb to 83 over time and start throttling, but instead of being in the 1350-1500 range at 83c, its atleast 1600. 

Im not sure how many watts less the card is using when i go from 900mv to 750mv. Ill have to monitor that with gpuz

Make sure you're not clock stretching to hell (run some GPU heavy benchmark and verify you're not losing a ton of performance) Nvidia GPUs do that now, and while it's cool because no matter what you're trying to do it stays rather stable it makes identifying a good UV / OC harder as it "works" and doesn't look obviously wrong until you actually measure performance

Heaven benchmark scores about 20pts lower. But benchmarking really doesnt tell the whole story since when using over 750mv the heat climbs until it throttles.

It would be thread appropriate to talk about Wrath: Aeon of Ruin, but honestly there isn't much to say about that game. It's ok. I should be using power-ups more, but I can hoard them and you can't make me use them. Weapons range from good (shotgun, slag cannon, railgun) to meh (pistol, green ball launcher), but they aren't outstanding. Enemies are ok, I think, but man do I wish there were some mini-bosses like cyberdemon. Strictly speaking there's one guy that poses a significant threat like that, but he's melee, so it's over quickly either way. Considering the incredible length of the levels in the game, I miss pistol starting, too.

The game has some things going for it. Power-ups are pretty fun to use actually, even if I optimise my fun out of it. Blade parkour is neat. I like that there are no hitscan enemies (even if invaders get pretty close). Levels look rather pretty and detailed to me. It's just that the game isn't outstanding.

What else... I got to play"test" a niche indie game, because the dev is desperate for playtesters and lets you in if you simply ask about it.

Pretty sure some mods still make that game crawl to a stop even with newer Java when you use them, especially the missiles / fighters heavy factions like YRXP / Red, and stock will still shit the bed with triple engagements (helping a friendly faction) and a large enough DP limit.
