EU covered up a study that found piracy does not affect sales by Illidan Stormrage - Fri, 22 Sep 2017 04:15:25 EST ID:jtzcSksq No.707573 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

They paid a bunch of money for the study, but then it actually showed that in some cases, piracy even boosts sales slightly.

Fuck all ya'll piracy haters please don't hurt me, I buy almost all of my games but this argument is finally settled, and the whiny bitches have lost!

>tl;dr recommendations for good games to play with someone who isn't good at video games (ie: can't really do skillful jumps or complicated attack patterns) but still pose some sort of challenge?

So my girl's never played vidya and I'm trying to find some easy-but-not-too-easy games for us to play through together

we just went through paper mario which worked pretty well because it was turn by turn so during the fights she didn't have to do anything with great reflexes but it still required some skill to do the action buttons and avoid enemies in the first place

some games we've played through alredy were pikmin and yoshi's woolly world

Preferably looking for games for the gamecube/wii/wii u/PC since I already have em but I'll take any recommendations at all if they're worth buying the system for, Preferably co op but single player is fine

Please don't feed the trolls.

I recommend turn based games, since precision, timing and muscle memory doesn't really matter. Just installed XCom Enemy Within and you can totally teach anyone how to play it. Divinity Original Sin 2 also has a split screen coop mode. Hot seat games can also be fun, like any Worms game, Talisman, Heroes of Might and Magic. Also considering most of those games have a tutorial mode.

Diablo type games aren't usually too difficult and are really engaging. Diablo II or III, Path of Exile, Grim Dawn, Torchlight games.

Choose your own adventure type games like The Walking Dead or Life is Strange might also be really fun.

ps4 games for casual friend by Tifa Lockheart - Thu, 22 Jun 2017 05:54:41 EST ID:mgDgKnLA No.702899 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

A super casual friend of mine has bought a ps4 and I'm trying to think of good games to get her hooked on vidya. She has barely played anything to my knowledge, a bit of sims, GTA and some platformer or two.
She bought Asscreed enzo collection, GTA 5 and Horizon. I would not have suggested the ass collection but the other 2 might be alright.
She was also interested in The Witcher 3 but I've only played 1 and 2. I've heard mixed things about it.

Anyway since I don't want to buy a ps4 I also want to take advantage of this situation if possible and get her into Souls like games for Bloodborne and Nioh. I let her try a bit of DaS3 yesterday and she got completely crushed by Gundyrr but she didn't seem to hate it.

I'm having trouble with recommendations, I think she might enjoy Fallout 4 and Skyrim since they're pretty casual and at the same time they might awaken her RPG lust. Even though they're both dumpster fires of their respective series I think someone that hasn't played much vidya can have fun with them.
I also thought of Diablo 3 and Divinity: Original Sin. D3 is supposedly pretty good on consoles and I enjoyed Divinity. Couch co-op games are pretty rare these days so that's a plus too.

>Sims, GTA, and some platformer

Probably nothing. You're either born with it or you dont. You can get them to play FO4 or Skyrim maybe since the game was dumbed specifically to appeal to the normie but thats where its end. Some people just really suck at playing videogames, and cant help but feel they're wasting their time trying overcome the challenges that comes with it. OP has a better chance leaving the friendzone over awakening anything within her like a love for rpg games. The only girls i know who got into videogames later on in life was because their boyfriend or a guy she likes was into them. But soon dropped the entire thing as soon as they lost interest in the person who got them into it.

I could be wrong which is why i highly reccomended waiting until she finishes Horizon Dawn before getting too excited and end up buying games she'll never play.If she loves it then then she should totally get into Witcher 3.

i mean take a game like "Clicker Heroes"

to any "sane" person it seems like the most absurd shit. Simply put, what possible appeal could it possibly have. you just repeat a single, monotonous function over and over, and watch some sort of arragement of numbers/colours...you get the idea - there is *some* form of positive reinforcement which, inexplicably, keeps people suckling at the teet

if you arent embroiled in that experience, its a senseless, alien thing to you. To anyone in it though, theres some sort of feeling of progress, of achievment.

you can argue that such achievments are paltry, pointless, and to be honest i would agree with you. But then...who defines what is and isnt pointless? is it pointless trying to shoot someone in the head for the billionth time on any FPS? or pointless playing the same goddamn hearthstone deck versus the same goddamn hearthstone deck that every other dickhead shitlord uses. The entire thing is a joke. what was i talking about?

this must be what warioware is like in hell

With the other things they're actual games with at least some level of depth, even if it's just point click shoot dodge, or a card game with only a few viable options (every card game has that issue eventually even if it's digital only what the heck), the clicking thing is stripped down so far there's nothing left, and the way they play MMOs seems to emulate the mobile grinder style of "gameplay". clicking something over and over with no variation is about as much of a game as counting how many times you can tap your finger during a twelve hour airplane flight. so I guess technically yeah it's a game but I would definitely say it is more pointless than any other form of game. I suppose if it makes you happy that's enough, but I feel with such a simple task you could put that sort of effort into more productive repetitive simplistic tasks, like housework or jogging.

I think that AR can be considered revolutionary because it not only changes how we play games but can also change also how we view reality. AR allows one map (the real world) to have infinite layers of information and events happening concurrently at every point.

Instead of Walmart being just a real life store with AR it can become a store for virtual game items or even a dungeon. An empty field can become an elven village in a WOW kind of game and an airstrip for fighter jets in a military game at the same time.

Or imagine a really boring planned out suburb with old people and soccer moms that doesn't have anything to explore or engage in. You only have schools, supermarkets and houses. Well, with AR the game could turn that suburb into Morrowind.

Or an AR game creator can algorithmically or manually find some interesting locations in that place that people rarely visit. Then he releases an AR game that tells people to explore the town's uncharted territory like forests and industrial/commercial areas. Players get hints of what general area points are in. When a player stumbles unto a defined point in the game he sees some cool shit loke a dragon and gets rewarded and can leave a message that will show up to people who visit the point after him.

This reminds me of a quote I heard from Terrence McKenna which comes from some medieval alchemy book and goes something like: "Search for the philosopher's stone on the peak of the highest mountain, the floor of the deepest ocean, and in the darkest corner of the darkest cave". The point is that if you want new experiences you gotta explore the world instead of remaining in place. And AR can really encourage that.

So what do you think about AR? Are you excited for it?

So I've revisited New Vegas this week due to wanting to see what exactly went wrong and why I don't seem to enjoy Fallout 4 all that much... I came to a simple conclusion:

>Fallout New Vegas
Fantastic RPG, Not a great shooter

>Fallout 4
Fantastic Shooter, Not a good RPG

The rest really boils down to personal preference, I like RPGs a hell of a lot more then shooters for a single player experience, and find the RPG elements of New Vegas to be vastly superior to a game that pre-writes a story for me and forces me down a linear quest chain with almost no wiggle room to follow my own path. I have similar problems with Fallout 3, in where perks seem more like 'Skip this combat segment if you have 60 fork points to properly appease the duchess and not have to murder the court's guards to continue past checkpoint 56.' type layout.

Where do you lot stand? Lets start a discussion that should have been shut 5 years ago.

>If New Vegas had more time...
What a cop out. I'm so tired of that shitty argument. I could counter that by saying that if F3 wasn't having to be built from scratch it would have been better. FNV was half done before it started as they reused basically everything from Fallout 3's assets.

>Each Faction
Except for if you really explore FNV and listen to the dialogue with many of the higher characters, You'd know that no side you pick will ever go anywhere. Even independent. The NCR will eventually take over everything and restore things to being as they were in the Old World. When the defeat the Legion, it will just be endless expansion Eastward. If the Legion were to win, it would cannibalize itself from within once they hit the coast with nothing more to conquer as the Legion is blindly following Caesar, not the ideology. House would eventually cave under NCR or Legion pressure. As would an independent New Vegas. At some point, the securitrons would run out, even if they are the advanced versions. Ultimately, the Legion with wither away unable to support itself once Caesar died. The NCR would expand endlessly until it was a big inefficient government body. Independent/House would just fold as New Vegas is a tiny little splotch in the world. You should play through Lonesome Road and really dig deep into Ulysses dialogue to understand these concepts.

>Either way, FNV's overall plot feels like it has more importance to it due to the faction involvement; the focal point of the game is the Dam and everything is leading to it, so tensions are high - the battle will decide who has a hold in the Mojave.
I disagree, the overall setting seems more massive but in reality, the consequences of the Dam and who holds it in Battle 2.0 won't mean shit. Not only due to the above but because eventually all of New Vegas will be uninhabitable as for one, the Cloud from the Sierra Madre will seep into the Mojave, killing everything under it; and two, the tunnelers will eventually escape from the Divide and rip the inhabitants of the Mojave apart. The whole thing about the Dam is that nothing that all this bloodshed is for will ever matter. The Dam will not matter in 20 years or less and all of this chaos is just political because NCR needs to look good taking on the frontier, and Caesar needs something to feed his army blood. Look into the DLC's, characters like Chief Hanlon or Arcade Gannon, and the Followers of the Apocalypse. You're missing the big picture of New Vegas.

>FO3 and FO4 don't really capture the same scope as NV; 3 is focused on the purifier and Enclave, but the only big opposition to the Enclave are BoS, and 4 suffers from having the big bad faction be one that operates covertly, and you don't really interact with them until midway through the story. Even then none of the factions in 4 really have the power or intentions of protecting the Commonwealth.

F3 has a way more complex storyline that what you make it out to be. President Eden wants the Purifier activated for the purpose of destroying all mutated lifeforms. The "lesser" Enclave want to activate the Purifier so that they can have military control over the people of the wasteland, like a defacto West Coast BoS. The Brotherhood want to activate it so that they can help the people of the wasteland under Elder Lyon's love and peace doctrine. Technically, is Eden wrong for wanting to get rid of all mutations? What about the Enclave holding the Purifier securely by the "government," so that it can't be commandeered by outside forces. Or is Lyon's Brotherhood the proper owners having planned and built it? They big picture of the game is a smaller focal point but clean water for the whole wasteland would be insanely important on a real world level. Way more important than who has control over a dam generating some electricity when there isn't even a grid for it. (Plot hole.)

>Reused assets
If you read about what was actually planned for the game as compared to what came out, you can see that more time would've allowed it to be more fleshed out as Caesar's Legion is almost hated across the Mojave when it was planned for areas to showcase the security that Legion provides in order to get the point across, as well as other aspects. GTA San Andreas reuses GTA 3/VC assets but it still took 2 years to make after Vice City. Reused assets or not, it still takes time to write a story and plan out a landscape. Even then, Bethesda was slowly working on FO3 while Oblivion was being finished.

>The consequences of the Dam and who holds it in Battle 2.0 won't mean shit.
I wasn't speaking about the holding of the Dam itself, but the control of the Dam is a symbol of the victory in the battle; Caesar would be facing another defeat at the Dam in a more direct fashion, and the NCR will look good holding the national landmark as well as have a bridge to the east. Surely it won't matter in the grand scheme of it, but in terms of gameplay it gives you a feeling of being more involved. Also, depending on your choices at Dead Money the Cloud would eventually disappear due to the ventilation systems being reactivated, and Tunnelers from the Divide thrive from their environment due to it being a collapsed underground wasteland, which is the opposite of the Mojave. They may be able to survive underneath, but they are still incredibly sensitive to bright lights.

Eden wants the purifier activated with a modified FEV to kill all radiated lifeforms in the Wasteland, which would mean almost every form of human life is killed besides anyone in actually secure vaults (which are barely seen) and the Enclave itself - he's an AI that has only been exposed to American history, and if it's in the Enclave archives it's probably incredibly biased history. Autumn wants the purifier for the Enclave as well, but wants it for control.

Sure, the water is purified, but if it's intended to go outside of the Capital Wasteland it needs to be transported, and still go through the same troubles that other caravans have in other areas. Eventually the purifier may cease to work since it's also based off of Vault technology, or another force may intend to take it over themselves.

Never said the Institute are assholes trying to kill everything, merely stated that they were an organization that works covertly as opposed to the Enclave and other factions in prior games - in fact the Institute is probably the best option for the Commonwealth.

This one has the best exploration even if the combat is a bit of a shit show and the story is just window dressing for the exploration.

This one has the best story and does interesting shit with the factions and has better combat, though exploration in this game kinda sucks compared to 3.

>Fallout 4
Has the best combat but the exploration is not as good as 3 and the quest fucking suck also the leveling system is a fucking abomination honestly was my least favorite of the series so far.

Have to agree, I'd add that NV also had the best locations in terms of large cities and settlements, even though Fallout 3 was more fun to just wander around the wasteland in.

I didn't think exploration sucked in NV, you'd find interesting stuff and interesting encounters, but there was also a lot of nothing. Which is fitting for a desert and all, but just made 3 a little more fun to explore.

So I've been putting it off for quite a while, not sure why, but I'm finally gonna get into the Civ games.

Which one is the best?
Also, is the ai good? Could I get by just fine playing against ai or would I miss out by not playing online multiplayer?

Newness and graphics don't matter that much to me. If the graphics aren't as good but the game quality is better I'll go for quality every time.

You guys have never steered me wrong before, so I appreciate your thoughts. SLAYER

5 is best if you have both expansions and all of the DLC. 4 is pretty great even on its own, but the expansions are swell. 6 is basically an empty shell at the moment until they flesh it out with expansions, much like 5 was when it first launched.

If you wanna go old school then III is pretty amazing, albeit quite dated these days.

Oh yeah, there's no real reason to play the first one these days since Civ 2 does everything better, but you can play it for giggles to experience the original Asshole Gandhi bug before Firaxis decided to make it a feature.

I do like that in 6, they changed it from just Warlord Gandhi, to insidious backstabber Gandhi.

Get out now, please. For the sake of your personal life and mental well being, don't even start any of them. They will completely ruin you for days at a time.

I beg you.

With that said, Civ 5 and 6 are really good. Endless Legend is also a neat sci fi/fantasy Civ type game.

I havent binged a video game in years, and by golly I played this straight through the night

the things I find funny and terrible are
>teammates that worry about looting for 20 minutes, but never listen to strategy for moving to zones or setting up traps for people
>end up getting blasted by niggas because my team would rather loot for 30 minutes

>actually get a good team of people that listens
>one nigga is lagging behind looting
>waiting in a boat
>didnt realize boats burn gas just sitting there
>by the time he gets to me the boat is out of gas and were dead in the water
>team goes up to cliff and shoots our swimming asses

>I think any honest gamer should want to see this game succeed because it's a big middle-finger to the stagnant AAA gaming industry.
In what way exactly? It's far from an original concept, if anything we've been swarmed with Early Access battle royale style games that could be summed up with "a buggy unoptimized mess, has little semblance of balance, and needs more content".

Not here to hate on PUBG or anything, it's great if people enjoy it and I admit I simply don't like the genre. And it seems to be one of the better ones out there. But I don't get your point.

Yeah, I wouldn't define it a success just for selling a lot of copies. A lot of garbage has been popular. It WILL be a smashing success if they use their profits to address all the issues with the game and provide continuing support of the game with free new content over the years while continuing to grow the player base.

What I meant was, gamers should be hopeful of this optimistic outcome. It would grant a lot more legitimacy to early access titles from unknown (hah) studios. If they take the money and run, it will be a huge blow to consumer confidence.

I enjoy this game because every game is different in a very unique way, and my friends play it. Its gaining popularity and is very addictive for me, so

Just sayin.

I'd play more pubg if it were optimized in a decent manner, as it stands it's basically unplayable on my machine.

I love this game, but I just played yet another round where some guy fills the entire killfeed in ten seconds with his spinbotting bullshit.

I can't even begin to express the frustration I feel with the anticheat efforts. I understand that it is early access, but between bugging out, getting hacked on, and desync, I end up playing other games after a few rounds every time.

I've been playing TF2 since it came out and this shit still happens and I am just baffled.

Fire physics has always been horribly broken since the very beginning. But instead of fixing it or redesigning to primary to be more reliable, they just added a bunch of weapon unlock gimmicks to turn the Pyro into a weird scroll-wheel based combo class.

Don't feel like fixing one of your core gameplay concepts? Just use microtransactions to distract players from your own laziness!

All I want is team fortress three to happen. Feel like they could build on this foundation they've got really nicely.

Had a great time with tf2 in its day, but with a dwindling player base (unless that changed it could have) and less going on it can't hold my interest like it used to. Its been long enough, time for a new game.

Valve is going all competitive with their games now. tf2 is a more laid back, chill experience. It's spiritually similar to gmod because of the shared player base and being played on player hosted servers with their communities. You also have the ability to customize the game on servers, creating unique communities with interal cultures. To me, that makes the game have soul and coziness.

New shooters like CS:GO are very different. There are no community servers and instead of being diverse the game is very streamlined with the same kinda culture every match. You can't customize the game and can only play it within strict limits so that it's serious and competitive. To prove my point I can think of what valve did with the train on a cs go map. During a tournament, a guy lost because of a train that rode out unexpectedly and blocked his grenade or some shit. Valve removed that train from the map because it made the game unpredictable and variable which is bad for competitive play.

So the freedom of tf2 allowed lots of creativity and fuckery, like brony servers, deathrun, weird broken maps and entire societies of middle school kids from all over the world being formed on servers running in somebody's basement. Valve itself gave it more freedom with humor and fun weapons and quirky characters. Just compare the look of tf2 hats to the look of cs go skins and knives. You can see that tf2 hats are all silly and fun while cs go skins and knives try to be serious, manly or trendy. And tf2 has events for halloween and the holidays that make the game very fun. Cs go doesn't have any of that stuff.

However CS:GO is the trendy game now. It is what people like and it makes the most money. TF2 used to hold that position when it was "cool". So even if tf3 is made it will be more like cs go. tf2 is dying because the age of fuckery is dead and we have entered the age of serious mlg pro gaming with racing chairs and twitch ecelebs. The only way valve reacted was adding competitive match to tf2 and shifting it further from community servers. It is evolve or die in business.

But culture is never static. Who knows what the future holds. Maybe the trend will overgo a metamo…

I see tf3 being a combination of tf1 and csgo but with slightly tongue in cheek, though not nearly comedic as tf2. that is, if they ever actually make a tf3 lol.

I know many of you here aren't RTS fans but I think this a real gem that is out in a late beta now and will be released in full in two weeks. It is made by Eugen Systems famous for the Wargame series, paired with Paradox, famous for their map painting autism simulators. The idea is to make a balanced RTS that sticks to historical accuracy, the battle happens on a larger scale than Company of Heroes, but features many similar mechanics such as cover, off map artillery, but it has no base building.

I have been playing this for a week now and it seems really solid. Solid as in the best real time strategy game I have played in a long fucking time. Any of you that are interested in this genre I highly recommend you check it out, if some are interested we could make a discord to play together.

The game itself is beautiful, and when released in full two weeks from now will feature 10 divisions from both sides, and is set from D Day to the liberation of Paris. The different divisions can meet whatever your play style is, for instance if you are a rusher there is the French 2nd Blindee Armored division, but if you are a late game pusher there is the 21st Panzer which brings in the King Tigers at the end.

In this pic you can see my P38 Lightnings shooting down a German anti tank plane, while I hit them with rockets and artillery on the front line. What you can't see in the screenshots are the various infantry units, labelled tanks, etc. that are all there but are too small to see from this perspective.

When I was fired EA sent me on a mission to infiltrate DICE and learn their ways. In my time there I feel in love with a DICE employee, she took me in and showed me her people's ways, but it wasn't meant to be because EA Sweden came in with gunships a blew up our tree, I mean game studio. We were forced to flee into the hills at DICE's adjunct facility where we gathered strength, once EA came back we defeated them in a massive battle that would probably take like three and half hours to describe. Sending EA back in in disgrace we a wait the sequel but it never came, but if it did they probably would have just Nuked Sweden from orbit like we all knew they would.
