Indie discovery

Is there any newish indie game out there that's worth a damn? I want to play something new.

Classic Fallout

Haven't seen one of these threads for a while and they are usually pretty comfy.

So I started on FO1 for the first time recently, and I'm finding it way more enjoyable than I first anticipated. It might even be the best in the series but I'll wait until I've finished it before I lay down my judgement on that. I used to have this really cool party with Ian, Tycho and Dogmeat but the fun ended when Dogmeat decided to rush a flamethrower wielding super mutant. The absolute madman, he died like a hero. rip in peace Doggo. Right now I think I'm closing in on the end of the game, I've found the chip, done the glow and become an initiate in the BOS. I'm not really sure what's left to do besides getting a power armor and cleaning up the muties.

I tagged Energy weapons (Since they always seem to be abundant after the halfway point in these games, and they are really powerful.) Doctor (it has saved me a few times) and Science. I have never used science once during this playthrough, I'm not sure if I'm missing anything or if science really is pretty useless.

Once I'm done with FO1 I'm thinking of starting FO2, but I also wanna finish Tactics really underappreciated game imo

Guide to a happy Share Thread

Leechers

1. Before requesting,search online and even use distributed search engines e.g.InfraSearch,Opencola,YaCy,FAROO. See below for famous links.

2. Look first in the archives and volafile.

3. 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.

4. Due to asshats in the thread,links to files will be purposely misleading (have spaces,lines,keys&passwords split in the post),including torrent hashes.

If you see a string of characters (e.g. c12fe1c06bba254a9dc9f519b335aa7c1367a88a) with or without dashes, it is a magnet link.

If your bittorrent is shit,prepend magnet:?xt=urn:btih: to the string.

a. Find and Replace (sed/tr/awk) is your friend.

Uploaders

1. When in doubt;upload,ask questions later.

2. Upload to many alternative sources (5+) and keep a local copy if space permits.

3. Use a URL shorterner (spaced or split) and/or paste relinks (e.g zerobin.net) on file links to confuse bots.

4. Encrypt your uploads now 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/HF33Go

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 the consensus whether to upload the files individually.

2. Vola room owner edit- 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.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.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)".

3. 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.

Changes in art style

What is it about games from the before the turn of the millennium that have a sort-of…"charm" to the designs and the direction with the graphics? Even when some of the processes stayed the same, it seems like everything related to creating "appealing" graphics was thrown out the window after 2004. And, this change in direction becomes extremely obvious when developers both to include the "original graphics".

Fear & Hunger

Bought this game a few days ago and took me roughly about 15 hours to beat it the first time through, and was able to speed run another one in about 3 to 4 hours after that on a 2nd try hard run. The wiki for this game however is currently under-development so I wanted to consult some anons for secrets or interesting discovery on top of a general discussion, because I'm virtually drooling over ever inch of lore and victory in this game.

>What is Fear & Hunger?

Basically a very, VERY tough RPG Maker game that focuses on

>Ancient Gods & Newly Ascended Gods

>A Dungeon that causes you to go mad with fear & hunger

>You must manage Sanity which also acts as your mana through sex, drugs, light and booze

>Hunger is a constant concern so micro managing your food intake is a must

>A relatively good class & party system with a wide array of potential members

>A ton of Options in terms of play-style and character growth

>Randomized Dungeons (assembled from maybe 2-3 presets from each connecting section it looks like) every playthrough

>A shit ton of rape

>Limited & Dangerous Save System, every save counts

>Vast array of very Deadly Enemies

>Attack Planning, weakness assessment and good old fashion fleeing will be needed for nearly every encounter

>Dismemberment Combat System that works both ways, dismember or BE dismembered

>Traps and other weapons which work outside of specified combat (you can lop off enemies legs before engaging with bear traps for example)

>Desperate and varied Environments

>Lots of Endings that each carry importance (no true endings that I'm aware of)

Anyone else playing?

Also known glitch for a certain spell, Blood Golem if summoned is a great ally, but once you finish the dev forgot to remove them from the party and since they have no Inventory Menu Picture the game can't load it and you will get stuck in a loop. Only Bug I've encountered but can ruin a run if you aren't careful.

This was a game I meant to play before, but I couldn't figure out how to get stuff out of a chest so I put it off until now. After fiddling with the controls though I finally figured out you have to use the action button plus the right directional button to move stuff into my inventory. A mile stone has been reached. After that I jumped then bounced off a wall before flying 25 feet off a ledge and dying. All things considered I think I am doing horribly, but I'll persevere. Anyone got any tips I may need to know?

is site for it. It's a neural network taught to upscale images after being fed millions of photos at different resolutions to teach it what an upscaled image should look like. The results are unbelievable. When applied to old pre-rendered graphics, like with Final Fantasy 7 by modders, we are getting perfect HD remasters that even developers couldnt do (assets all lost for pre-rendered parts of the game, so just upscale blurry dogshit now).

Boss Battles

One that tests your skills, one that isn't a normal enemy with inflated health, and one that doesn't have a giant glowing weakness. Bonus points if the battle music is rad too.

Playing games in unintended ways

The other day, I saw one guy who recommended playing FEAR without the bullet time/reflex ability, despite of the fact that the latter is supposed to be one of the most integral gameplay mechanics in the game right next to the crouch button.

Tried it out, and god be my witness, I had a fucking blast with the game. Machine Pistols actually being useful and even surprisingly effective weapons for a change, much more adrenaline during the firefights, and whatnot.

Can Anon recommend any other self-imposed handicaps or other, unintended ways of playing a game that actually makes playing it more fun, as opposed to just upping the difficulty for the sake of upping the difficulty? Just refusing to use certain abilities, or RP stuff, or whatever it is.

Corporate shill tactics

Video game discussion online is plagued by those who shill unapologetically for corporate interests. Most of these people aren't paid (the journalists are, but the aren't even really "people") - they literally do it for free (video gaymers are retarded faggots). Why do you think people shill? Why do you think gaymers are so susceptible to shilling? What are some common or uncommon shilling tactics you've noticed? What communities are particularly affected by it?

Here's a few that I've been seeing a lot lately:

The Shill-22

>if you don't like "X", don't buy/use/play "X"

then conversely,

>you don't even own/use/play "X", why do you care?

The shill insists that anyone who criticizes a corporation's product should just stop using it. Of course, if you don't use it, that same shill will insist you have no reason to criticize the company for their products. A variation on the "traitorous critic" fallacy. End result: no criticism allowed.

Muh Private Company

>it's a private company, so free speech doesn't apply!

>it's a private company, so you can't critique the ToS!

>it's a private company, they can censor their game if they want!

You've all heard this before I imagine. The logic behind it is that you are not allowed to criticize companies for their legal actions/decisions. And also, that free speech is not a socio-cultural value but purely a legal term. It'd be like if you posted on /r/TacoBell and complained about a new fucking taco or some shit and they said "WELL TACO BELL HAS THE LEGAL RIGHT TO PRODUCE THIS TACO AS THEY SEE FIT" etc etc. (actually rebbitors probably do say this).

The Tinfoil Hat

>anyone who shows any degree of skepticism towards a corporation is just a tin foil hat conspiracy theorist who needs to CITE and PROVE that a company is going to go back on its word (no matter how much a company has done this in the past)

For example, if you suggest that Classic WoW might have sharding, or that Star Citizen might not meet its next target, you will be accused of being a pessimistic whiner making baseless accusations against a poor mega-corporation who's done nothing to deserve your skepticism. It doesn't matter how many times a company has fucked its customers over in the past, they will always be given the benefit of the doubt by the shill.

Mods Did Nothing Wrong

>oh whats that you were banned for toxicity? GOOD

Modern video gaymers lack the capacity to tolerate anything mildly upsetting in-game, and so they will approve of the most egregious, intrusive, community-breaking censorship practices as long as they no longer get called a "fuck tard" for being a bad player. This is by no means limited to video gaymes, however, for instance this very website is plagued by the most pathetic sorts of mod-dicksucking imaginable. Shills can't imagine that companies would ever abuse their power. It is inconceivable to them.

Thank you, EA!

When a company massively fucks over its users for years on end, and then throws them scraps, the shills are incredibly quick to engage in fawning praise. I say "Thank you, EA!" because EA shills are particularly prone to this. Brittbottles will fumble over themselves to praise EA for releasing a new FIFA promo pack for them to by, only minutes after raging at the game for being a piece of shit (it is). It's not only EA though. A recent example would be Star Citizen who tried to actually force people to pay 50 bucks to watch their yearly shillcon. All they had to do was apologize and the whales at /r/starcitizen showed them with praise.

Add you own! Shills are everywhere…even if this very thread! Be careful!

Super Mario lore and theories

Is Mario an immigrant? He's commonly called both an Italian plumber and Mushroom Kingdom resident. But obviously, he isn't a native citizen that was born there. A stork had to deliver him and Luigi from a faraway magical place (Italy) to reach the kingdom. Both babies got accidentally dropped along the way. Baby Mario got lucky and was taken care of by a family of protective Yoshis. Baby Luigi got neglected as an infant while in Kamek's clutches, the childhood trauma leading to his cowardly nature later on in life. Regardless, at the end credits of Super Mario World 2, the stork finally delivers the twins to the house of their new parents in the Mushroom Kingdom. Presumably adoptive because their faces are never shown.

Anyways, this is the theory someone recounted to me when he suggested that Superman and Mario are immigrants.

Project NX: Project M 2: Electric Boogaloo

SO Switch hacking is really easy, demonstrated by the fact that mods for Ultimate are already being made. One of these people took it upon themselves to start changing values and tried to change movement. What does this mean? Project M 2.0 baby. A few days ago, NyxTheShield announced he started development of Project NX, a spiritual successor to Project M, an effort to speed up the gameplay of Smash Ultimate, and give things like enhanced attack and movement options. So, how do people react?

Meleefags are meleefags, they will stick with melee. PMfags are cool - hey, more characters! But Reddit and Ultimatefags are ABSOLUTELY ASSBLASTED.

So, what do you think? Nyx is apparently not scared of Nintendo or the Smash (read: Reddit+Ultimate) community, and will probably have the legal overhead to keep modding the game. Below are some videos of the result of the modding. Excuse me for the low quality, but they are Twitter videos and are pretty shit to begin with.

Me being a PMfag, I really like the idea. I don't have a Switch yet, but if this thing takes off and proper emulators and homebrew starts coming out, I might just pick up one secondhand. Prime 4 has also a big factor in this

Fullderp: A postponed memorial Edition

What's this all about?

Fullderp is a game where one of us declares himself the champ and takes a ragtag team of six Pokemon assembled by anons into an online competitive Pokemon 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

Can I give the champ something?

Of course. If we've got a champ, feel free to come in and watch and give him something when he calls for a new team. No experience necessary, and everything's done in-browser.

How does it work?

When the current champ calls "new champ", the first poster to claim it is our champ. The first six legal Pokemon suggested once champ has been claimed or "new team" has been called will be the team our champ uses to battle.

Suggesters are not to make multiple suggestions for a team unless 15 minutes have passed since their last request, or unless the champ specifically asks for resuggests.

The champ will be battling in Smogon OU unless he specifies otherwise.

——————————————————————

The Rules:

Failure to follow the rules will result in IMPEACHMENT and/or BULLYING.

1. The champ cannot forfeit or intentionally throw a match.

2. The champ may not edit a set without the suggester's permission.

3. All Pokemon must be nicknamed.

4. The champ is not allowed to timer stall.

5. If someone resuggests before 15 minutes have passed since their last suggest, the champ must ignore it.

6. The champ should replace resuggests with fresh suggests that come in later.

7. If champ gives himself Smogon sets, he's a faggot.

Linkle Liver Story Fully Translated

The obscure Sega Saturn only sequel to Crusader of Centy on the Sega Genesis has received a sudden and full English translation. The manual was also translated. You can download a pre-patched bin/cue here that is confirmed working on original hardware. Mednafen is known to have issues with the game but SSF and Yabause provide better results.

For those who have played neither Crusader of Centy or this, it is like a Zelda game but with very good and fast game play. Linkle has gorgeous sprite work and takes full advantage of the Saturn with complex reflections and per-scanline interrupt effects and distortion.

Choices actually matter in Mass Effect 3 even if it doesn't directly effect the ending.

You can decide on the fate of the Krogan and determine if the Quarians, the Geth, and the Rachni will go extinct. Just because your choices don't effect the choices you get at the end doesn't mean that you can't make extremely impactful choices for the galaxy.

Annoying Mechanics in games

We have threads about annoying enemies in games but what about annoying mechanics, parts of the game that are so fucking infuriating that it would be better for them not to be there. Can be both gimmicks and entire segments of games.

For me SMT: Stranges Journey had those bloody fucking dark rooms which were incredibly annoying to deal with, yeah you could see through them but with an item that you get later on, and you spend a good around of time just fumbling around in the fucking dungeons crashing at walls and getting into annoying random encounters only to realize that you've missed one exit and now HAVE TO GO BACK.

Assassin's Creed Thread

Which Assassin's Creed games did you think were alright? Which ones did you think were pozzed?

For me, I thought that Black Flag, Rogue, AC2, Brotherhood, and AC1 were ok experiences overall. Black Flag probably being my favorite because it reminds me of a mature rated Wind Waker somehow. Rogue is my 2nd fav because it lets you play (and succeed) as a villain. AC2 and Brotherhood had the charismatic Ezio to carry their storylines. And AC1 was tedious, but its story was morally gray and not simplistically "assassins Good; templars Bad" like later entries.

The rest I thought were a little too pozzed for me to sit through again. AC3, Liberation, and Origins had redskin/nigger protagonists with racebaity stories. Revelations focused too much on Desmond Miles' retarded subplot and took place in a muslim shithole country. Unity was broken and the bushy eyebrow ""french"" protag was unlikable. Syndicate is ok, but the blatant racemixing between Evie and a poo-in-the-loo ruins it. Odyssey is alright, but that homosexual npc and lesbian Medusa subplot were stains on an otherwise decent game.

Black Flag and Rogue also annoyed me the least because it lacked having Desmond Miles and Layla Hassan gameplay segments. Both of whom are just insufferable characters.

Fuckhueg Monsters

Today, we analyze fuckhuge monsters in vidya games. I'm personally terrified of them (when they're underwater, even moreso) so of course I try playing any vidya I can including these titans.

Besides Shadow of the Colossus - a game we all know and love already - what games include fuckhueg monsters as a non-secondary aspect, if not the primary aspect? The Monster Hunter series does well on this, fulfilling and checking off many of my personal pleasures, that is, actually hunting down and killing these titanic beasts. Subnautica has underwater monstrosities but to be honest, that game is quite lackluster after you've seen the monsters at least once - it's actually the smaller ones which scare me in that game, like the eels and portal squid things.

In any case, I've certainly missed a few games which include fuckhueg monsters. Go ahead and talk about your favorite or other noteworthy cases.

Anon's bizarre vidya adventure AKA /v/ makes an RPG maker game. (Edition): #010!

We’re creating a video game in RPG Maker VX Ace together with other anons. Here’s how it works:

We have our own board over at >>>/bizarre/ to act as an archive for changes/resources/discussion. There will always be threads on /v/, but /bizarre/ will serve to host more permanent discussion.

Everyone is taking turns downloading the newest version of the game, making contributions before reuploading it for someone else to work on it. Only one person can actively work on it at a time. This is because if two people make overlapping changes to the database, scripts or switches, they will conflict resulting in one person having to redo all his work. Changes to the map and events can be copy-pasted from one version of a project to another so you’re free to work on new maps and new events if its not your turn and add them to the current version of the game once it is your turn.

It should work like this: OP posts newest version of the map. The first person (Anon #1) to respond to OP stating that he’s going to work on it becomes the active game dev. Once Anon #1 finishes and re-uploads it, the first person to respond to him gets to work on it. So on and so forth. Additionally, whenever you re-upload a new version, reply to the anchor post, it’ll make things a lot easier.

General Rules

>Don’t mess with maps, events or anything else you didn’t make. Although, adding minor stuff like a connection between two areas or fixing bugs and typos is all fine.

>If you’re okay with others editing your stuff, leave a note saying so.

>You’re free to add characters and the like, to the inter-dimensional tavern.

>You’re also free to make changes to game settings, unless its something we’ve agreed upon (we’ll probably do this via a poll)

What about RPG Maker MV?

>We decided in the last thread that we’re using VX Ace. We’re not changing this again. Get it out of your head right now. If you made content in MV you’ll have to back port it to VX Ace. It sucks, but we’re not doing any more engine changes.

Why don't you fucks use version control?

>Like RPG Maker MV, we tried that and the project died. Nobody wanted to learn git. It can't be helped. Plus someone needs a (((premium))) account if we want the project to be private.

Are you guys affiliated with [PUT ANY OTHER /v/ PROJECT HERE]

>No, the group creating this game is not a stable dev group and is only comprised of random anons who get interested in the project enough to start developing is.

Add X to the Game!

>Suggestions are fine, but if you want something added to the game. DO IT YOURSELF. Its not that hard.

What should I add?

>Go nuts, add whatever the hell you like! (However, please keep in mind that if the filesize of this project gets too large it’ll become unruly to work with. So please be somewhat conservative when adding large music or .ogv files.)

Is OP a faggot?

>Yes

"Micro" Transactions

Latest COD is going absolutely insane with the new "Micro" Transactions. I know it's

>cod

so nobody is expecting anything from it, but it's setting a disturbing trend that other games could copy in the coming years, so I think we need to talk about it, it makes horse armor look downright generous

Let's review how much money the game wants you to spend:

>60$ for a normal edition

>60$ Season pass, includes 4 zombie maps and 12 multi maps, they specifically gave you less maps this year and just padded out the rest with ports of older maps, and 4 blackout skins

We're already at 120$ if you want the "Full package", let's keep going

>No single/campaign

>Cancerous multiplayer that is almost nothing like "Call of duty", copies everything under the sun that's new and popular. Wants to be the next overwatch/csgo/R6 Siege badly

>Blackout, the new "Battle Royale" mode, pretty much pubg with the "highly marketable" character skins and slightly less bugs

>Zombies is okay, but very un-inspired, 60$ season pass advertised 4 "brand new" maps, but turns out the 2nd of 4 maps is going to be yet another remake

>All 3 game modes are clearly rushed, not enough content, basic features cut out and re-introduced in updates weeks to months later, hailed as "brand new" additions we've never seen before

>Game is bleeding fanbase, PC especially. BR mode on PC is pretty much dead on arrival, to the point that the game mode is going to be free to play later in the year

So now that people know what we're dealing with, let's take a look at the microtransaction system. Keep in mind, let's pretend we've already spend 120$ on this game already:

>Battle pass like system, with 100-200 tiers

>each tier takes about 1 hour of real play time, no way to speed it up, no matter how well you play

>"Generous" free skip for pretty much just touching the game in any game mode daily

>Cannot earn tiers in zombies, the only mode people actually care about

Morrowind Multiplayer

Do we have any plans to get a server running when the next Morrowind Multiplayer update comes out? If so, what are your ideas for a balanced server? One of the main problems was how powerful everyone got due to artifacts and potion chugging. I think there are a few ways to deal with this just by using server settings.

>No artifacts, or just make them useless so their quests can still be completed

>This includes OP items like boots of blinding speed or throne room items

>Prevent the merchant money restock exploit

>Daedric armor shunned in cities (RP)

>Attributes hard capped at 200

>No Almalexia or Vivec souls

>Difficulty +100

My reasoning for this is that when we play Morrowind Multiplayer, especially on a roleplay server, the idea is that we're average dudes. So it makes no sense for players to obtain the same items or power only the Nerevarine would have. When everyone is a god the multiplayer isn't as fun. Also Morrowind thread since there's no one up I guess.

Why is it every time I see a let's player like Game Grumps and journalist in the 2010's say Sonic should die and/or was never good, they sound like they're pandering to an audience that's projecting onto Sonic that smug cool kid in high school they hated. Or maybe it's not that and they think Sonic's cockiness and his development history means he's just a 90's marketing stunt and they want to show they're not shallow and prefer the more humble Nintendo characters. Even if it shows they don't pay attention to the gameplay to critique and just fell for the American marketing. I'm pretty sure without the attitude, they wouldn't be actively saying they're excited to rip him a new one liked he fucked their mom but treat Forces and Lost World like a Ubisoft game and go "it's not so bad I don't know why you fanboys are so butthurt about it" even if nothing changed about those games' quality. They did the same thing to Crash in the 00's (he was the whipping boy cause his more iffier games released around the time allowed them to paint him as a dated 90's icon despite his influence) and it just disturbs me that an impressionable audience are actually taking their shallow brand of critiques seriously.

Bioshock 2 screenshots

I got bored and took a bunch of screenshots while I was fucking around with the console commands, I forgot how cool BA2's first two levels look but since BA2 doesn't let the player return to previous levels (like BA1 does) most people ignore it because the game doesn't really start until level 3. This is especially true for the giant monorail roundhouse, which is a huge (20+ floor) setpiece that most people blow through in under 30 seconds. I also noticed that the monorail roundhouse has both a nicely detailed crane and a ground turntable for some reason, which doesn't make sense if you think about it.

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. Recent releases have been somewhat better overall.

Bungie and Activision part ways

>Tensions between Bungie and Activision have been simmering for awhile, as evidenced late last year when Activision said that Destiny 2: Forsaken wasn't "performing as well" as it it had hoped. Game director Luke Smith responded publicly by saying, "We are not disappointed with Forsaken. We set out to build a game that Destiny players would love, and at Bungie, we love it too."

>Fast forward to now, and this statement from Activision: "Today, we’re announcing plans for Bungie to assume full publishing rights and responsibilities for the Destiny franchise. Going forward, Bungie will own and develop the franchise, and Activision will increase its focus on owned IP and other projects.

ESO

Does anyone else here play Elder Scrolls Online? I don't know anything about the current state of the game but it seems to be doing fine with the expansions being released. I played it when it first came out for a good couple of months and somewhat enjoyed it, but thought the PVE aspect was lacking. I noticed not much people did the Dark Anchor side events later in the game and queuing up for dungeons was dumb because rather than the game loading you into an instance you had to actually go to the dungeon and wait for your party. In my experience most of the time I would wait near the dungeon for the party members and they would either take a long fucking time to get there or they would just leave the party. It was really frustrating. Other than that I thought the story quests, side quests, and guild quests were alright. What I enjoyed most was the PVP though.

So to any anon here who might still play this, Is it worth coming back to and buying the expansions?

Future For Street Fighter

It's well known that Yoshinori Ono has gone on record saying that he's been simplifying Street fighter's mechanics and core gameplay ever since 4 so SF can reach a wider audience. A big complaint of 5 is the lack of depth, but since 4 was so widely acclaimed he continued to simplify SF, but with 5 instead of improving upon the core design it's just a continuation of simplification. My main worry is that since 4 was so widely acclaimed and since 5 is popular as well, literally being on Disney Channel albeit their sub channel, that we'll never see a return to the mechanical depth let alone any sort of improvement on the core that SF used to have, all for the sake of "reaching a wider audience". Is there any hope to see a return?

At the end of Ocarina of Time, Zelda sends Link back to the past to reclaim his lost childhood in being thrust into the future and bearing the responsibility of the fate of Hyrule. Yet, after abandoning the Master Sword, Navi, Link's proof that he belongs to the kokiri forest leaves him. He is then once again divorced from his childhood. He has no other family to fall back to. That's why in the beginning of Majora's Mask he's going through the lost woods in search of Navi. The Forest rejects him, and while he is lost he is desperate to find the key that let him in.

I believe, as others do, that Link never gave up on a search. He eventually became a Stalfos after being lost in the woods for so long, for years possibly. The regret the Ancient Hero feels in Twilight Princess is what I believe to be the regret that he wasted his time searching for the childhood he lost and didn't bear the responsibilities of adulthood again. He wanted to pass on his lessons to the next generation, clearly, yet he denied himself that chance. He thought he would regret not getting to finish his days running around and playing with friends, but what he truly regrets was not facing the issues he knew he was capable of handling and leaving the toys behind.

What's the limit on sacrificial fusion? You're told you can only do it a limited number of times, but aren't given this limit. Is it some simple number like 10, or is it just that you can't sacrifice a demon that would push the receiving demon's stats beyond their cap? If the latter, can't you super power up your demons extremely easily by dumping low level demons into them?

Atom RPG

>What's this?

A Slav Fallout clone made by ruskies, down to the character building and aesthetic, except instead of retrofuturistic 60's America it takes place in retrofuturistic 60's Soviet Russia. If you've ever played Fallout Online, then you should be familiar with the unhealthy obsession Russians have with Fallout.

>How Slavic is it?

The English localization is done in-house, which means it's chock full of punctuation, spelling, and grammar errors. Though it's still more than serviceable. There's a zillion references to literature and movies only Russians will recognize, and it's got that sense of depression and disdain against sanity inherent to most Slavic works.

>how's the gameplay

Very similar to classic Fallout, from S.P.E.C.I.A.L. character-building and skills and perk-based progression. to combat, though combat is a bit more involving than using VATS to shoot everyone's eyes out in ATOM. Though the combat and encounters themselves do need some tuning. The world design is pretty free-form and you're not railroaded to go anywhere. Quests have multiple outcomes and there's a lot of unique character roleplaying possibilities, and there's tons of side locations to explore for loot.

I'm 20 hours in and the ending isn't in sight yet. It's a janky 7/10 game, though if you liked Fallout 1 and 2 you should probably like this too

Interview with Nintendo President reveals they want to be Disney long-term

http://operationrainfall.com/2019/01/05/nintendo-furukawa-interview/

>During a recent interview conducted by Nikkei, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa offered some details regarding Nintendo’s future in the gaming industry. These comments address the company’s approach towards inherent risks as well as their willingness to innovate and be flexible with industry trends. In the translation below (provided by Nintendo Everything), Furukawa discusses the various risks associated with both software and hardware development:

>"We’re in the entertainment industry; there isn’t much we can do about that risk. To us, the guiding principle by which we operate is offering customers all around the world innovative and unique ways to play games."

>Perhaps the most noteworthy piece of this interview though comes from Furukawa’s final remarks. When asked about the “innovation dilemma” and Nintendo’s plans to address future dips in business performance, Furukawa indicated that the company would not simply rely on its traditional home console business model.

>"We aren’t really fixated on our consoles. At the moment we’re offering the uniquely developed Nintendo Switch and its software – and that’s what we’re basing how we deliver the “Nintendo experience” on. That being said, technology changes. We’ll continue to think flexibly about how to deliver that experience as time goes on."

>"In the long-term, perhaps our focus as a business could shift away from home consoles – flexibility is just as important as ingenuity."

>He went on to add: "I’m thinking about little ways we can reduce that kind of instability. I’d like to increase the (amount of) games on smartphones that have a continuous stream of revenue. We’re also dabbling in theme parks and movies – different ways to have our characters be a part of everyday life."

>Author's Take: Throughout its existence, Nintendo has demonstrated a willingness to explore new business opportunities as they present themselves. From playing cards, to game consoles, to smartphone applications, Nintendo’s business model has always been more about entertainment as a whole rather than just making hardware. While this interview certainly isn’t an absolute death sentence for Nintendo’s home console division, I think it’s safe to assume that Furukawa and the other executives are exploring multiple options to continue Nintendo’s long-standing legacy.

Fucking christ how depressing. Iwata died for a company that's rapidly heading towards becoming a soulless megacorporation.

>Unfortunately, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim doesn’t yet have a release date, but the Prologue is coming for PS4 on March 14, allowing players to try out the first three hours of the title. Since it won’t be distributed for free, the end of the video also shows the four different packages that include it, two of which are bundled with dedicated goodies, and two with Odin Sphere Leifthrasir and Dragon’s Crown Pro.

Legend of The Galimulator Heroes: Gaiden Episode 1

Well seeing that my fucking laptop is still broken and the save for the previous game is still on that disc, I'm making a spin-off thread as I really feel the need to make another Gali thread.

FAQ

>What the fuck is Galimulator?

Galimulator is an android simulation of Galactic politics that we've been playing by creating our own countries and seeing them live and fight one another in a great free-for all.

>Android games are shit

This is not a typical android game, it's a simulation of galactical politics. It has no microtransactions besides the ability to remove non-obtrusive ads which are not present in the PC version and is basically completely free. Besides this is not about the game itself but what we're gonna do with it.

>Any special rules?

No trandescence, fuck having a piece of history disappear because of muh sufficient tech level.

>Can I change the state of my Empire?

No, you can only modify the Specials

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

You take one of the empires shown on map and give it:

>A name

>Specials

>It's color

>Name it's ruler and his dynasty

We're playing on an Earth Map with 250 regions because this laptop I have right now is a toaster and I fear giving him more work. As always list of Specials and everything else will be posted in the next posts.

Sexy Girls, VR game aimed at the adult market, censored on Steam

Tomimar’s Sexy Girls was supposed to launch on Steam back on November 16th, but like other adult games that were supposed to be made available on Steam, Sexy Girls had its release postponed multiple times. The game isn’t much of a game other than walking around in a strip club watching chicks with big boobs dance around without any clothes on. There’s a variety of girls who are completely exposed, which is one of the game’s core features: that the girls are all naked.

It sports dynamic boob physics, fully modeled female genitalia, a challenge mode, a free-cam mode, and a hands-free mode. The girls have different dance routines that you can view as well.

Originally the game was supposed to be released on November 16th, 2018. However due to the game not being approved by Valve, the developers changed the release date to November 24th, 2018. A week later the game still wasn’t approved for release by Valve, likely to do with the game having a bunch of unrelated genre tags in the store description. According to SteamDB, the game’s release date was pushed back even further yet to December 9th, 2018 after it still wasn’t approved to release on November 24th.

The developer continued to modify the tags to no available, as it still wasn’t approved for release by the time December 9th rolled around. It appears to be another one of those games that is stuck in Valve’s review purgatory, along with Victory Project and My Erotic Summer, to name but a couple.

**Game looks kinda forgettable but that doesn't make the censorship acceptable.

PS4 Pro: Worth It?

Hey /v/,

Normalfag-tier thread incoming. Title says it all: is the PS4 Pro worth it or should I just get a regular/slim?

I don't own a 4K TV, only a 1920x1080p monitor - the VG248QE. Poorfag so upgrading to anything else is completely out of the question. I do plan on eventually buying a substantial number of PS4 games however, so is the difference in processing power and GRAFIX worth it? Or would I not really notice it?

THQ Nordic Marketing Issues

So as we've seen with Darksiders 3 and Metro Exodus that THQ Nordic has a problem with getting the word about their games out close to release. With Darksiders 3 it seems poorly reviewed since it's too much of a souls clone, although I've heard there was also issues with performance and lore rape. That said what DOES concern me is that absolutely no one is talking about the game or even knows that it released.

With Metro Exodus there's very little information on what the game actually is. Is it more like STALKER? or is it its own thing? We're very close to the launch ov this product and I'm worried this game is gonna get shafted by the same issues that Darksiders had

In any case THQ Nordic seems like its run by good people who care about video games, however I worry about their marketing team and their financials since they keep buying IP when it seems they have issues marketing quite marketable games. I really hope THQ lands a hit soon. Because the LAST thing we need is more Bethesda/EA like publishers.

Shin Megami Tensei thread

With SMT Dx2 recently teasing an update featuring Bayonetta from the Bayonetta series, now's as good a time as any to have a MegaTen thread.

https://archive.fo/14FAI

While I never play mobile games, this news has my interest because it opens doors for more Sega/Atlus IP crossovers in the future. Hopefully SMTV will get one too.

Then again, it's hard to have any hopes for SMTV when it's had no news updates for over a year other than "it's still being developed".

Discuss MegaTen games ITT.

>SMT Imagine (the f2p PC MMO that officially died in 2016) has a private server. It's still in an early testing stage, but if you're interested, you can visit "reimagine.online" anytime.

Japanese Learning Thread: クリスマス Edition

>I'm completely new, where do I start?

Learn the Kana. Start with Hiragana and then move on to Katakana. Yes, you need both, and yes stroke order is important. Use Realkana or Kana Invaders for spaced repetition. Alternatively, you can use the Anki deck, but I'd recommend the first two. Tae Kim has a Kana diagram on his website, and you can use KanjiVG for pretty much any character.

>Alright, I know the Kana. Now what?

You have to learn vocabulary and grammar in order to speak and understand the language. Some will tell you to grind the Core2k/6k deck until you're blue in the face, others will tell you that grammar is more important. Truth is, you need both, but it doesn't really matter which one you decide to do first. You're teaching yourself here, so you move at your own pace and do what you're most receptive to. If you want grammar first, then Tae Kim has a great introductory grammar guide, there are numerous grammar related videos in Anon's all-in-one-Anki-package, IMABI has an active forums and an abundance of information on grammar, and there's always YouTube if you're lazy. On the other hand, if you want to learn vocab first, then grab the Core2k/6k and grind until you're blue in the face. For mnemonics, see Kanji Damage.

>Well this is great and everything, but I still need more help

Ask in this thread.

Since SOMEBODY deleted the thread about genre problems, and I've had a lot to say about random encounters for a while now, I'm going to repost some arguments from the thread.

>>15998683

This is why overworld encounters really are only good when there's a reason to interact with them. DQ11 at least has the horse to run into them, DQ9 didn't have any good reason for it. Pokemon Let's Go is a worse game because of it (among all the reasons it's a worse game). Earthbound (and maybe a Persona game I dunno I never played them) gave you a lot of different reasons to avoid and battle enemies with the overworld encounter system. Random encounters are fine. They're there to wear the player down and make them consume resources (unless you put a save and/or full heal right before the boss in which case why are you even bothering to make the game anything but a boss rush, that would be so much cooler).

(Somebody else made this response, I think it was pretty good and a legitimate counterargument)

>>15999194 (You)

A big part of what gave a sense of adventure in old JRPG's was resource management. The primary resources being HP and MP. Random encounters where in part just another ways to expend those resources. Therefore stocking up on Magic Waters and Medicinal herbs. However their was also a limited inventory so resource management was an essential aspect to the game-play. This mechanic in essence is the same in famous survival horror games like Resident Evil. If a situation was still to hard then sometimes grinding was in order to strengthen your resolve for the adventure alleviating the need for potions. The random encounter system outdated when Earthbound and Chrono Trigger introduced there on screen monster encounter systems but in both those games their were far more forced encounters and extremely aggressive enemies depending on if you were under leveled. DQ11 essentially barrows that system but nerfs it further which is fin in theory but in practice it eliminate the apprehension and need for preparation for Dungeon exploration and forces a greater emphasis on boss encounters. This isn't inherently bad but with the unlimited space provided by the magical Bag of Holding and the smaller maps it loses something that was great about the classic series. Remarkably of all the things that could have been streamlined without undermining the classic series the map design and random encounters was not the top of my list of priories.

(And my response I was working on as the thread was deleted, thanks Mark)

>>15999454

You seem to be missing a part of resource management, money. By altering the money dropped and the availability of healing items, you can modulate the difficulty. For example, if MP healing items are hard to find and are expensive, you might have to decide if you want to eliminate random encounters quickly or save up MP for a boss, but then is the HP you lost just beating on enemies actually more expensive in the long run? Random encounters have never been outdated, it's always been intentional, at least as far as JRPGs go. I know old computer games had difficulty displaying anything for a while. Somebody did a statistical analysis of Chrono Trigger, FF6 and 7, and they came to some interesting conclusions if you want to check that out, it's a pretty good read in general. By the way, I think it's disingenuous to include Chono Trigger, because there are static encounters. This means that unless the player goes out of the way to grind or avoids enemies better than the testers did, the designer will know the exact level range a player will be at every stage of the game. Compare that to Earthbound or even a standard JRPG were not only can the player actually run away from a battle, but the designer knows the RNG so they can end up at about the right level, it's just easier to not do that.

If anyone else would like to give their opinion on the topic I'd be interested, I think it's a worthwhile discussion to have. The gist of my opinion is that if you're not going to let the player have any meaningful interacting with overworld enemies, then whey did you even bother?

NIHON FALCOM THREAD: Project Nox Edition

EVEN WITH THE RECENT TROUBLE, SUPPORT FALCOM GAMES AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. ENCOURAGE THE GOOD THINGS DONE OVER HERE WITH THE LOCALIZATIONS AND PERHAPS THEY WILL CONTINUE, AND IF NOT THEN VOTE WITH YOUR WALLET

>Latest News

-Project Nox, Falcom's new project, is set to be unveiled tomorrow during their annual shareholders meeting. No one is quite sure what it is yet, but guesses range from the new Ys title, a sequel to TX or possibly something new entirely.

-Trails of Cold Steel 1 and 2 will release on PS4 on January 22, 2019. For the first time the games will have dual audio, though the dub will feature the extra lines recorded for the PC versions. It will also feature the "turbo mode" feature added to the PC versions.

-The PC versions of Cold Steel 1 and 2 had dual audio patched in, so as long as you are able to update your game an undub is no longer necessary if you want to play it with Japanese audio. Also some new English lines were added to CS1 with the patch.

-On the same day, October 26th, both Tom Lipschultz and Brittany "Hatsuu" Avery left XSeed. Apparently, their departures being simultaneous was a coincidence, at least according to both of them. Though details are slim, it looks as though Tom left by his own choice and Brittany was let go. Regardless this is a massive and possibly fatal change to XSeed. Tom was not only instrumental in securing ports for smaller obscurer Falcom titles like Zwei and Xanadu Next, he was also one of the staunchest defenders of anti-censorship practices in the localization business. His loss could easily mean XSeed is highly vulnerable to pozz. Every release must be carefully watched from now on. As for Hatsuu, she was a huge fan of Falcom games, particularly the Ys and Trails franchises, and was one of their biggest cheerleaders at the company. A Falcom game localized without her is sure to feel at least slightly different. The two most prominent faces of the company to the public are gone and the future of XSeed and Falcom games in the west is highly uncertain for now. All we can do is wait and watch vigilantly for what comes next.

- Falcom has announced they're working on a new Ys game set after Ys VIII. Right now there is no title, no word of whether the Tokyo Xanadu sequel Kondo talked about making is happening first and no other info other than it's being worked on.

- As of this posting Trails of Cold Steel 4 has been out for nearly three months in Japan, so obviously the whole game is spoiled. Try to keep things behind spoilertext here.

- The PC port of Ys: Memories of Celceta released on July 25th, 2018.

- The Switch port of Ys VIII released with a litany of bugs, including not even having dual audio (NISA's sole claim to fame) at launch.

- After an email campaign, a retranslation, apologies, and 7 months of delays, Ys 8 finally got released on PC. And NISA fucked up, the port is so terrible that only 51% of the Steam reviews being positive (it was originally at 25%, but shills will shill). Western and Japanese websites are reporting this story. In other words, a huge backlash. Meanwhile, NISA promised to fix everything. Don't worry, they'll probably be able to fix in a few weeks what they couldn't fix in 1.5 years. Absolutely. Ha.

- Trails of Cold Steel I & II is now on PC through Steam and GOG with gameplay enhancements and newly voiced lines of dialogue.

- Ys Seven ported to PC by XSEED, available now on Steam/GOG/Humble Store

- Zwei!! and Zwei II are finally released on PC by XSEED, available now on Steam/GOG/Humble Store

- Tokyo Xanadu released on PS4/PC with an improved translation, but there are a few issues like slangs, memes and random chtulhu lines.

- Also available on PC: the Trails in the Sky trilogy (now with Turbo mode), Xanadu Next, Ys: I & II Chronicles, Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim, Ys: The Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin.

>Fan-translations

>Trails from Zero at 70% (being edited by Geofront/Zerk). There is already a beta (as in a rough translation done before Zerk even started working on it) out, though the quality is on the low side, though still coherent from start to finish

>Trails to Azure was leaked. There are a few typos and every once in a while there's an awkward line or two but all in all it's a solid translation. https://www.romhacking.net/translations/3679/. Flame's edit of the translation is also out officially now. It's a better worded script at the cost of pretty much breaking the voice mod. Both are available packaged with torrents if you care to look for them.

Blizzcuck's Classic is looking more and more like a failure before launch (it saddens me to say that as I am an autistic WoW player). QA layoffs, sharding and loot sharing are all bad signs. It looks like (((Activision))) will be taking a bigger decision role as well.

Burning Crusade is a chance to play some fun 10 mans like Karazhan and Zul Aman while still not completely cucking to the casualization of the game

Also because you have nothing better to do.

Comfy Games (That aren't Harvest Moon)

What are some relaxed games to play in these harsh Winter months? I feel like playing vidya but honestly I don't feel like putting a lot of effort in.

Of course I immediately gravitated to life sims but I've been burnt out on Harvest Moon, Rune Factory, Story of Seasons and Stardew Valley for a while now. I've been playing Banished and Ayanami Raising Project but I feel like I can do better.

Mobile "gaming"

I have an S8, a very powerful phone.

Name a single game worth playing on the google play store that isn't a port of a PC game or a remake of a flash game.

I have been sifting through nothing but pure trash, i recently played the "newest C&C game" and i was so disgusted i left a review and looked at other peoples reviews and what i saw made me want to commit murder. I genuinely believe that there isn't a single game on the platform that isn't directly stealing every gameplay element it has from other mobile games.

The only mobile game that has had actual gameplay is something called Rusted Warfare, it's about $2 and is basically an attrition based RTS with no population cap(there's a free version). That is quite literally the only worthwhile game on mobile i have played and it has a superior PC version.

Please, if you actually know a genuine game with actual gameplay, please let me know, i want to believe.

Ever wish you could get behind the wheel with Clarkson, Hammond, and May from The Grand Tour? Now it’s your turn! One moment you’re watching the hosts attempt some questionable automotive antics… the next you’re at the wheel yourself – same car, same location, same chance to make a massive mess of it.

Pre-order The Grand Tour Game to receive access to three ridiculous cars from Seasons 1 & 2: James May’s Fire Truck, Richard Hammond’s Eco Car, and Jeremy Clarkson’s Beach Buggy.

Hitman Thread

Been playing the new Hitman games recently, they're pretty fun. They remind me a lot of Blood Money.

Pros

>Dense open ended levels

>Targets have long and complicated routes with loads of approach angles

>Loadouts and starting locations give even more options to optimize

>Hilarious dialog is a great replacement to Blood Money's bobblehead cartoon caricatures

>Lots of cool little details

>Elusive Targets are intense, and I can't really imagine getting an experience of similar intensity without the online features. Though they need to make it impossible to reset the level for it to be perfect

Cons

>Special kills would be really cool to discover on your own, but they decided to put map markers to hold your hand to almost all of them. (Thankfully not all)

>They decided to put a hint of modern politics in the game for some reason (Thankfully sparce, but the last mission of 2 is the worst offender of course)

>Expensive

By far the biggest con

>They tied the fucking loading screens to the online service, so if you're in online mode then you might be unable to load the level if there's high traffic

"piracy is bad because it's stealing"

No it's not. Here's why.

>because you get to use the product without the people who made it being compensated.

This doesn't make any sense, because what about used games?

What happens with a used game being sold 2nd hand, the first person who bought it gave their money to the people who made it, but the second person who buys it used from the first person isn't giving their money to the creators, they're just giving it to the first guy. Companies don't give a shit, the reason Nintendo and Sony made fun of Microsoft when the Xbox one was revealed was because they knew consumers won't stand for it, but if they could get away with it, every major company would have the same type of anti consumer policies.

If I'm just a nice guy and I give away my used game for free to someone, this is seen as a perfectly legitimate transaction, even though it's logistically identical (in the way the piracy=theft argument is framed) to if the first guy threw the disc into a wood chipper, and the second guy downloaded a cracked copy of the game.

The only way to get rid of piracy and have the reason behind make sense and have any real effect on commerce, is if it becomes impossible to sell a used game unless the developer gets a cut, and the only way to buy the game is directly from the publisher/developer/whatever.

If you truly think piracy is wrong then stop being a morally inconsistent cuck. If you buy a used NES game from a pawn shop, you need to send a check to nintendo.

The worst, most sickening part of Fallout 76 is that there's some neat Enclave lore in it that Bethesda botches because of lazy writing.

Specifically the US President was a big racist meanie who hated China because of "communism" and because his father gave up his company to "workers collectives" and then just woke up one day and decided to start a nuclear war because he could. No mention of the war in Europe, the Gobi campaign, global famine, the grey death, the invasion of Alaska, the Chinese bunkers across Appalachia in F76 itself or even the actual communist infiltration within DC. Nope, just destroy everything because of stupid reddit tier murgia memes. And even then there's a bunch of bullshit involving automatic nuclear safeguards preventing him from launching a full attack, which doesn't make any sense and only serves to create a fetch quest - this part itself is really bizarre and makes me think they stripped this part from the BoS leadership quest in FNV.

I never expected much from Beth but it seriously does make me mad because they wrote the stupidest, laziest character imaginable with the stupidest, laziest meme-tier (again, 'muriga literally that) motivations when they themselves had actually managed to build an interesting setup in Fallout 3 at Mama Dolce's. It reminds me of the stupid, one-off mention about unions in some terminal within Fallout 4 that was similarly lazy but was more or less the same thing but with one-off flavor text and not lore foundation.

FUCKING SERIOUSLY THEY EVEN BOTHERED TO PAY AN ACTOR TO INVADE AMERICA IN THE FALLOUT 4 INTRO, IT'S WHERE FO4'S PROGATIONIST GETS HIS BACKSTORY HOW COULD THEY FUCK UP THEIR OWN LORE SO BAD. The only explanation I can come up with is that Beth outsourced development of F76. I can even see what Todd might have been aiming for, a nu-Wolfenstien type thing where the communists are the good faction and America is bad but even then they couldn't pull it off.

Don't buy F76 like I did. Everyone already knows the gameplay is shit but the lore rape is worse and makes it not worth your time at all period. Have some wallpapers.

Siege of Avalon

Alright faggots, I'd like to take a moment to talk about what's probably my favorite game. For cons it aged like shit, and that's saying something considering it looked like a cheesecloth that's been left out in the sun for way too long even back when it came out. The combat goes from diablo hellfire to one punch man when you get your shit in order. And finally it ends on a cliffhanger and there's no chance what's so ever of it ever getting a sequel, ever.

For the good, it has the best writing of any game or even most books I've ever read. Like, there's an actual book where you'd find your journal. Then there's another one in your log. That's in addition to each character you meet having an actual character; soldiers will gripe about the loved ones left behind, nobles being nobles will scheme even in these circumstances and that comely serving wench will definitely respond to a brave young soldier looking for some assurance in the cold night. Main plot is warcraft 1 in stalingrad and you're just another newfag fresh off the boat, issued a rusty stick and some armor still dripping bloody from it's previous owner. You earn fucking everything here. Initially that's lunch and a bed you can call your own. Eventually that includes respect, a squad of your own, knighthood if you chose to accept it, possible lichdom, a princess fiancee and the title of a savoir of the realms. The music is some of the most haunting, atmospheric, blood curdling you'll ever hear. The inventory system is what KCD hoped to be but couldn't be autistic enough to actually pull off. We've talking separate pieces of gear, all visually represented with specific gameplay pros AND cons for a game that originally released in 1999.

Worst Online Community of 2019

I've been playing GTA5 online. It's gotta be the worst experience with a multiplayer game I have ever seen. The load times are extremely long, like 12 minutes, or sometimes infinite. The game crashes or disconnects frequently. The matchmaking is just terrible, making it almost impossible to play with your friends. But above and beyond all of those technical flaws it's the players that make it so much worse. On almost every public server you see the exact same thing. Someone on a 5 million dollar flying vehicle zipping around shooting rockets at new players who can barely scrape together enough money to buy ammunition. Spawn camping them and killing them over and over again and then mocking them in the chat. It's just shitty people who spend all day being shitty to other people because the only enjoyment they can achieve is to make others suffer. Sad pathetic people that should kill themselves. Fuck them and fuck GTA5.

The return of Strangerealcore

>Ace Combat is back

>Front Mission getting a big budget spin off to test the waters

>Strong rumours Fromsoftware is making a new Armoured Core

>Quite a few new mech games like Daemon X Machina on the horizon

What made 2019 the year alternate history military otaku low sci-fi have such a comeback? did 'wider market western appeal' finally run out of meme magic over there or something?

Generic bare-bones shooter.

Now an open world foraging for resources and navigating through bases and defending is what I have in mind for Aliens.

Outrage Marketing

Back in the day I remember games like Postal and GTA using the negative publicity their games pulled in as their marketing strategy

Flash forward to today, and people are easier to piss off that ever, but I'm not really seeing much of that despite the guaranteed publicity from even slightly stepping on SJWs' fragile sensibilities. Are there games out there that are trying to do this?

FPS games lack good movement

Why do so many FPS games have such stiff movement systems? Too many FPS titles I've played the last 10 years nearly feel the same with some slight tweaks here and there but over all it feels like FPS gameplay has been completely stagnant.

Organization

I bought a 1tb hdd some time ago and started gathering games. Once I start one I usually forget which one I played last because it's not really organized. I even tried to keep logs but it's pretty hard.

Last time I tried to reorganize my game folders by genre to see if that could make the visualization better, but it didn't really work. So how do you faggots so to organize your games?

>Xbone released 5 years ago

>pic related is the complete history of modding for it

<it's fucking nothing

Is it just that hard to crack open, or does no one give a shit?

Non-Strategy games that use history to good effect

Hard mode: Not the history of the country where the game was made

While most of Nioh's story is only very loosely based on history, the bit after the prologue about the ships being named Hope, Faith, Loyalty, and Gospel all failing to make the journey while only Love remains IS historically accurate. I thought it really setup the story really well.

Gladiator Begins has a lot of fun with its setting. You can select what province (or non-Roman area since your character is a slave) your character is from and you actually get bonus points (since they're based on crowd approval) for playing to sterotypes with your playstyle.
