Same. The only game I can really play is MGS3 because I know every nook and cranny and any and all secrets about it. I loved beating up old Slavs as Snake and dress in cool camouflage in a jungle when I was younger. Party games make me want to drink more and yell at people why the fuck are they playing video games instead of doing something that's fun.

Well I had an xbox 360 for about 3 days before it red ringed on me (one ring e 47 or whatever). So I'm back to a shitty craptop for gaming. What games can I play with almost no gaming power and have fun with? Preferably open world.

So far I've got Westerado, Hotline Miami 2, Gunpoint, Party Hard. and The Master Plan. Any other low end but fun games like this I should get? Esp games fun on meth or stims.

My Xbox 360 been giving me problems today as well... Hmm what a weird coincidence.

I haven't red-ringed tho, my problem is the power box. Seems to be over heating and shutting itself off. Pretty sure the fan broke. I'm gonna have to tear it apart and check, fan may very well just need some greasing.

Anyways, I recommend Binding of Isaac.

Yo!

I'm writing a paper about art and video games, so I'm looking for as much material as I can. Any links to obscure, weird or pretentious video games or things that maybe vaguely resemble video games would be really helpful. As well as links to interesting papers, interviews or talks. I've already got a bunch of academic resources, but I've always found the best, more obscure, stuff here on 420chan.

Don't hold back if you have strong opinions about some game, because it's ugly, unplayable, pretentious, not really a game or some other reason.

Also, I'll include a copy of this thread as an addendum, so I won't take the credit for your work. And the finished paper eventually, if anyone should care.

We had a thread a while back where someone was asking for a game with a specific a e s t h e t i c , they wanted horrible 2000's concrete boxes, narrow corridors and eye hurting green neon lighting everywhere. At the time I suggested Neocron, which as a bonus has an absolutely fugly retro windows 1.0 -style interface with your character's own cyber-implants, but since seeing Deus Ex: Invisible War I think we have a new winner.

SO UGLY. All the environments look like Quake 2. Even what is supposed to be a nice hotel looks like an electrical maintenance tunnel, all sprayed concrete and low ceilings. I guess the Dentons hit the world so hard the Collapse threw Neo-Brutalism back to Functional Minimalism.

Invisible War had ridiculously bad level design, and couldn't communicate its setting through level building. And that's something the original did especially well, so it was very jarring. Every location in the game felt the same, despite having some whimsical locations on paper. By contrast, the first game took place in areas where heavy reliance on corridor gameplay could be excused. But the city levels, like Hong Kong and Hell's Kitchen still had a lot of open spaces, so when you ended up in alleyways and airducts it was a bit of a different experience.

Maybe it was a servicable game on its own, but IW failed to do everything it ought to have done, even without looking at the original. It didn't do Cyberpunk very well, it wasn't a good shooter, plot and characters were anemic. It's a quintessential bad game.

Another problem I have with IW is that they have, as you said, "whimsical locations on paper", but it's all just more narrow corridors and blue lighting. Cairo is narrow corridors, the same blue wash as the rest of the game, drums, silly accents and the Cairo arcology is a mall with palm trees and hieroglyphics, and more narrow corridors and blue lighting. I think it's supposed to be a pyramid, but I'm basing that conjecture on a single level having a 45 degree angled window, as there aren't any establishing shots. I don't think we even see the helicopters flying, do we? You just fade to the next scene. Or at least the game crashes and reboots itself to the next scene.
Seattle is supposed to be a split-level city like Shanghai in Human Revolution, but that's only mentioned in the dialogue and lore, the only level design pointing to that is the inclinator, which, unlike the funicular from HR, doesn't actually move, you just fade out and the game crashes.
You don't even get a sky box suggesting this, it's a bit like Shogo, where you are informed that the city you are in is underground, or on the surface, or in one instance, hanging from the ceiling of a cave, but there isn't much to demonstrate this.
And your choices in this don't seem to matter at all. I'm watching Cohhcarnage get really pissy with the Order rep, who is still giving him orders, despite him being very vocal,( well, IRL, because you aren't really given a much of a voice to state your position) about hating her and her organisation and not wanting anything to do with them.

IW was so restricted by its tiny levels that it probably didn't even have the room to set up anything other than a bunch of corridors. One decent sized quare, and they'd have used up their alotted space. It was one of the things that just really killed the storytelling. The original didn't have a lot of whimsical locations. It had a shitty neighbourhood, warehouses out the ass, a drydock, etc. But they were believable, and they gave you a feeling for where you were. Which, most of the time, was a shitty cyberpunk world.

Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen such a strong opening level as Liberty Island. It's the exact opposite as with IW: On paper, it's trite and a bad idea. But in practice, it perfectly sets up the setting, the characters, and your own character and the options available to you. Paul lays it on a little thick, but you're turned loose afterwards. In that one level I shot guys with sniper rifles, snuck up behind them to taze them, incapacitated them with gas grenades to callously shoot them in the head. I even talked to a bunch of people. Invisible War? I can't even remember the first level. I genuinely can't. I'll look it up right now.

Right, Tarsus Academy. That boring ass school for the gifted. Turns out I'd forgotten about the game's opening, too: A bomb that destroys Chicago. That's typical for bad storytelling. It's supposed to be shocking, and set up the bad guys as a bunch of assholes. But in context, Chicago didn't mean anything. They blew it up before I even touched the controls. Why should I give a fuck?

In contrast, in Deus Ex, you're made aware of the fact that people blew the head off the Statue of Liberty. Again, trite on paper, but because it's presented after the fact, and the tone in which it's done, it does a great job of framing the world. IW's big ass explosion does nothing of the sort.

Worst thing about all your weapons using the same ammo is, if you run out, and if you use the plasma rifle you will fast, you have nothing but melee and grenades.
You can't even go back to your pistol like other games. Such a stupid idea. Juggling ammo types is fun, the Deus Ex tetris inventory minigame was fun.

At this point a lot of publishers have to fight their studios over Denuvo and eventually remove it after their heavy post-launch sales period.

They also can't deny it has a bad reputation. People were bitching up a storm because Denuvo was going to churn away a quarter percent of their SSD's projected lifespan after 6 months of continuous use.

It is at best, pointless to leave Denuvo in after the first year of launch. And if you take a look at all of the old SafeDisc, Securom etc. DRM methods and how they don't work on modern windows anymore you can see how it will eventually become detrimental. Sure, there are no more revenues from sales at that point but if someone cares enough about a game to play it 10 years after the fact, it would be VERY much better for your brand if they could do it with minimal hassle.

This is more or less the strategy publishers use. They know it's gonna get cracked anyway, so maximizing sales (to retailers mind you) at launch is the compromise.

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.


S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat Modding by Mike Dawson - Wed, 26 Jul 2017 17:25:44 EST ID:Ow6pblOq No.704736 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So I recently started playing STALKER CoP again, and I decided to install the Misery mod as it was the last mod I was following a few years ago. I'm trying to relive the game and experience it in the best possible way. Are there any other mods out there now that are better?

Mainly looking for realism/improved AI/improved graphics/textures/extra features. I have a very nice gaming rig so hardware isn't a problem, I want to push the game to its limits I'm just not up to date on the modding scene. Thanks in advance

Get Misery.

Its safer to mod CoP with a single overhaul than it is with several smaller mods.

Still haven't seen all of Pripyat due to game breaking crashes though.

Fuck MISERY

Get Call of Chernobyl instead. It combines all three the game's maps into one, adds the cut ones, and makes MASSIVE improvements to A-Life.

iirc you can get misery and turn it down so it's not super ridiculous, some would say it defeats the purpose though.

Cohhcarnage used the "Complete" mods in his playthroughs, they seem like the most stable, that've fixed the most bugs.

I wouldn't write misery off completely, but this is probably the best option unless you want a very specific experience or are an ultramasochist. CoC is good as hell; if you've already played through the story and just wanna do some stalkan, it's absolutely the way to go imo

what are some games that you can just spark up a doober and enjoy?

Pretty much games like Abzu, Journey, or Flower. Unfortuantely Abzu has no crack and the other two are on PS4 so idk

Right now the only one I have is Firewatch, it seems okay so far, nothing super interesting but definitely a gorgeous background

I don't think it's a joke to that guy. He probably thinks people will actually pick it up and start wandering around boring planets and dealing with shit micromanagement systems if he recommends it enough and dumps his huge screenshot collection at any and every opportunity.
