came out a week ago and it's not bad

you destroy enemy towers, collect orbs, or kill people to fill up your gauge in which your team's giant monster called a guardian attacks the other one and puts it in a vulnerable state, then you rush the enemy guardian while it's pinned and put damage on it to wound it; it goes back and forth until someones guardian is finally taken out

it has heroes that play similarly to characters from both paladins and overwatch but still has unique gameplay and graphics that set it apart from those two

i was saying what the game was, and it has a unique gameplay concept and graphical design when compared to overwatch and paladins

also there's no buying when it's f2p unless you want all the heroes without the grind like paladins. no need to make a new thread for it and clog up the front page when i could just use the corpse of this thread to discuss a game of a similar genre.

but you're free to get as upset as you want over someone asking about a game, not like this is a video game discussion board or something

Sleeping Dogs is really fun. I got it for free when I bought a video card a while back, and I breezed through it, not because it's short, but it kept me engaged. I never played the DLC, but the core game is great, and it deviating around Hong Kong to do the side things are actually rewarded instead of just being distractions.

I gave a guy a ride to his place and he gave me a PS3 copy. I haven't played the expansions either but this guy is right, the core game is good enough and the radio and ost is surprisingly good. Driving was butts tho but you get used to it.

You could also dress like some shoeless Hikikomori bastard for the whole game. It feels like a mix of Yakuza and GTA.

So I had a bunch (three) old Xboxes around and got in the mood to try and fix one (finally) that I knew just needed to be put back together properly. I cleaned the lens and totally fucked up putting the top little guard in and the fucking CD tray wouldn't open. I searched my whole house for the fucking AC cord but couldn't find the damn thing, realized I likely gave it away.
So I'm at Goodwill and they have this AC cord that has rounded edges but was smaller. I figure fuck it if this doesn't work I'm out 70 cents and can get rid of the fucking things for space. I go and snap it in and holy shit, it fits. Turn the thing on and it fucking works perfectly.
Then I remembered I got one of these Xboxes for 50 cents at a garage sale. An apparently perfectly working one, holy shit. I have a giant box of Xbox games (it was my favorite console at the time despite not having RPGs, loved the power) that I can now play.

Does anyone have any links to get the Xbox MC shit going? The kind where you can burn discs to a hard drive, I tried looking for this shit a while back but couldn't really find it/was broke. I think I'm gonna try making the one with the fucked drive a modded console if I ever stop playing Halo 2

What does /vg/ think? What game had the best soundtrack? Music or ambient/orchestral is fine. I vote the first Skate game.

Go fuck yourself chiggy, this doesn't belong in /m/ as this is specifically about vidya games.

Shinobi 3, Shin Megami Tensei 3, DKC2, Metroid Prime, and Thunder Force IV are my picks. Thunder Force IV was as metal as you could possibly be with 16 bits. Shinobi 3 was damn fine as well on the same console. The others I appreciate more for their subtle but strong ambient music though they can get fast paced just as well. SMT3 had excellent and fitting battle music and each normal battle theme had variations so it didn't get repetitive, most notably the primary normal battle theme. Metroid Prime boss themes were generally really intense and anxiety inducing or bombastic and epic, it was awesome. dkc2 even had that cool industrial-esque final boss theme.

>>704763
I just found out that one of the guys who did music for the jet set radio games did the sonic rush soundtrack and it's very similar. helps that the game is actually good too. oddly there's different versions of each song depending on which character you play or if it's the cd version.

This should help:

http://slade.mancubus.net/index.php?page=wiki&wikipage=Tutorials

Youtube should be a good resource for tutorials too. I'd start by looking at how a level is built from start to finish, then open up a copy of the vanilla "doom2.wad" (to save time and effort) and copy over the map elements that you want. You'll still have to tweak spawn points for weaps/mods/items/etc. as some of them won't be in the playable area.

It'll be a lot of work (a LOT of work), but afterwards you'll be able to pull maps out of just about any total conversion mod which is a very handy set of skills.

So, I'm kinda strapped for cash lately due to some stacking bills, and I was wondering how hard is it to make money by streaming gameplay footage. I haven't checked out the Twich scene and youtube gameplay videos since 2013, so I imagine since then, every other cunt with a half-decent gaming rig and too much free time on their hands is trying to do this, most of them are likely to be miserably failing, but either way, the possible platforms are flooded completely. Is that so?
I too am a cunt with a pretty decent gaming rig, albeit somewhat outdated, but I have no trouble running new games at full HD res, with the graphics set to high or ultra, varying from title to title, I've been playing all sorts of shit consistently since 1998, which I imagine is when most current streamers were born anyway, so I think I can appeal to the very slightly older crowd (25-35ish year olds), and I like to think I don't suck horribly. Plus, I'm from Eastern Europe, so I could play the whole "Slavic" angle to appeal to the kids, while playing both new and old games and showing easter eggs, easier ways of doing hard shit and so on.
What are the odds of any of that mattering even a little, so that I can make 3-400 bucks til mid august if I start now?

To be fair, working near minimum wage will make you way more money that Youtube. Min wage or slightly above will cover 1000 dollars a month. And you work 120 hours if full time.

On my channel I do mostly music/audio production/covers of shit and this is the time for a video:

>Spend about 6-8 hours working out the song, the technique, process etc. This is mostly for covers but it really adds up. Some audio production videos don't require much going into them. But some music things can be 20 hours of prerequisite work. So I average.
>Then spend about 2-4 hours recording. Getting everything perfect as Youtube has become less about the content and more about the production quality and packaging. Some shit just doesn't afford for mistakes either, like covers.
>Then spend at least 3 hours working on editing, cutting, splicing, effects, etc. Making it the actual video.
>Then I always spend another 1-2 hours getting it to youtube in full.

So for one video, it is like 15 hours before I even total it up. And looking over my numbers, it indeed comes out to somewhere around 15 hours. And that is spread apart, that isn't work 2 8 hour days. That is intermittent which makes it feel longer. And god forbid something gets fucked up in one of the processes. I try and do 2 videos a week which is a part time job alone. Sometimes I can get 3 videos a week if all falls in place. So probably 9-10 videos a week. Which is probably 130 hours a month spent holding the youtube channel down. That doesn't even account for answering comments, banning people, fixing shit that breaks on my end from constant use, wear and tear on my equipment etc.

So if we break that down into payment, I get 200 a month, I'm getting paid less than 2 dollars an hour. Most of the more successful but not huge (1 mil subs+) channels have rates of about 2-3 dollars an hour of work. Excluding the gaming channels because I don't know any of those guys except for one and he makes 4 videos a day and has only 20k subs which means he gets jack shit lol.

>So basically, working minimum wage for a month, just a month would be what I make in half a year on youtube. And my channel has far more success than most fly-by night gaming channels that jumped into the market way after Pewdiepie, Markiplier, Machinima, jacksetpticeye etc.

I also know that probably sounds like I hate youtube and I don't. I love that I can put my creativity and shit out there so easily and be able to hang around and connect with people who are also creative and unique. And I can troll the fuck out of the comment sections and ban anyone I don't like. Like Spardot.

It is a labor of love. I'd just work overtime if I was in it for making money. Some of the other benefits of youtube like media passes to cool shit and career opportunities are second to none. I can sit in my house all day and get opportunities I wouldn't find in a 200 mile radius if I tried.

People "go into" youtube for the wrong reason. And that is why so many are bitter now or just stopped working on it. Adsense/Monetization is not a get rich quick scheme. Just ask the blogspot bloggers.

I would like to borrow your last paragraph and replace "YouTube" with "creativity"

There's many bedroom producers and artists I follow and they constantly complain about numbers and whatnot. It's almost insulting when you listen to their newest track and maybe even comment how much you like it and they post something about "only 200 plays today what the hell"

Always good to hear there are real people being real with themselves out there and doing something simply because they enjoy it.

I would love to twitch and I believe I have the right mentality for it to be fun and entertaining.

The problem though is that I truly suck at video games and do not have Kaceytron-sized boobs.

So well, no twitching for me. I genuinely am bad at video games.

Why is there no OW thread in the first 6 pages? How do you guys regard this game?

I personally suck at it due to my very poor aiming skills. I wish it weren't the case because it gets me stuck with people who don't seem to have much teamplay or game sense.

What everyone else has said.

That being said, I wouldn't mind an OW thread, especially since Kangfist came out today with a patch, containing some decent fixes.

This, without a doubt.

Game's on its 5th season of competitive and still has no system in place for mitigating the overwhelming number of players who queue for said mode with rigidly anti-competitive attitudes. By far the most immature, entitled community of any game I have ever experienced.

Blizz is more interested in coddling kids and developing Weeb Dress-up/Emote Simulator than properly balancing heroes and promoting a healthy, teamplay-oriented community.

>I wish it weren't the case because it gets me stuck with people who don't seem to have much teamplay or game sense.

Get used to it. You could be decent, even great and still wind up with mates who have no business in comp.
