Uh, so, anyone want to discuss the actual game?
Hopes/fears for changes? Let's leave aside the "deus vult" thing, because that dead horse has already been beaten in this thread and many other places.

Full genetic system seems like it could be really fun and interesting.

I'm conflicted on "spending points on a perk tree" for your dynasty. I've always wanted some kind of traits for your dynasty, but I would MUCH prefer them to develop organically out of consistent decisions you make, or even things out of your hands: consistently been attacked or struck down by disease, etc.
Spending "perk points" feels really gamey to me, though I think many players will like this more than what my preference would be.

I do like the idea of a stress mechanic for your character, penalizing behavior which goes against their personality, but again for me part of the joy is stepping into shoes of someone who has a bit of history, and making often "non-optimal" decisions based on what I think they'd actually do.
Again, I know a lot of players don't do that, instead they try to always make the optimal decisions and try to build up their character to have highest stats, best traits, etc. So I think the personal lifestyle tree will be good for a lot of players.
I think I would be satisfied with the personal lifestyle tree if when I quantum-leaped into an older character, the tree was already filled out a bit based on decisions they have made.
It will feel gamey and dumb if all of a sudden I embody this character and now they start making lifestyle choices.

It sounds like schemes and plots and so on are getting some improvement, which is a good thing. It felt like there was a lot of wasted potential in that area in CK2.

Anything else?

Who exactly?
The system that exists currently has trees of decisions and semi-random events that give perks.

The sort of player who min-maxes is going to use those options based on outcomes rather than what's in character for their guy, and have just as much control as they have now.
The sort of player who actually read the events and chose based on what seems in character just loses some flavor about their character.

Though due to the limited number of events and number of times a player goes through new characters before they've memorized the common ones, maybe this is just streamlining the end state of clicking through menus without reading anything but the effects.

Graphics have gone far enough to where they actively fuck with my eyes. Two games in a short time now that I've had to lower the graphics and turn effects off because I get a little nauseous. It kinda helps but eeeeh. How do you guys deal with this shit?

Oh shit I fucked up my composition and a decimal point.
>the time it takes the eye to reach its new orientation is 6.6ms
66ms. Still relevant to all the other shit I was saying but not to the frame time of 144hz, which was really just an aside anyway. This would have been obvious if I'd had my coffee before the post instead of after. Or if I'd had the coffee before the bowl.
60 degrees range of motion is roughly how much you'd have to look from one corner of a 27" monitor at a 2 ft distance to the other. Long story short it takes you like 3-6 frames to look from your crosshair to your health and back.
Technically, if you could move your mouse as fast as the eye can, you shouldn't see any motion blur either.
But A: you can't
And B: motion blur algorithms are based on frame-by-frame vector calculations so you'd actually see MORE motion blur in that case on the given frames.

So yes, motion blur is very flawed when it comes to that aspect of computer graphics. I think you could just apply a transform curve to the magnitude of the vector to chill it out as it reaches effectively instantaneous speeds but that's not accurate to how film works and that's the basis games and 3D animation apps use.

I turn off motion blur, depth of field, and chromatic aberration.
They just fuck up the image, when I'm playing a game I want to look at crips, sharp images and textures. These things literally just smudge the game world. I don't want everything to look washed out when I'm turning, and I don't want to see half the game world in front of me in an artifical looking blur.
I just turn textures, models, etc. on the highest quality and turn 90% of post processing effects off, because they are taxing as hell and only make the game look less sharp.

I just bought it. Honestly not disappointed. Ever since the release of Duke3d 20th Anniversary World Tour and Shadow Warrior Redux, I've been dying for a similar release of Blood. It has been many years since I played original Blood on DOS and whatever differences there are, I fail to notice. It only feels different to me because of the framerate. You're right about the hitboxes on the corners though, but I don't really mind it.

What kind of stupid fucking question is that, what would be the point of doing something like this, something that is completely voluntary, something that you have to pay for, if it's not fun?
A game can have the most beautiful realistic graphics in the world and it wouldn't matter if it's not fun to play. I'd rather play a fun game that looks like shit than a shit game that looks good.
But let's keep in mind that fun itself is completely subjective. Something you find fun could be tedious or boring to another person.
And again, it's a really stupid goddamn question so you get a big NB buddy. Shame on you.

I get what you're saying, but it sounds like he's looking for pictures to use as backgrounds for nations in his game. Or avatars. So he can swap the default ones to do crazy stuff like have rainbow nipples god fighting M16 Abraham Lincoln riding a bear. I fully support this endeavor.

I plan on buying a Switch Lite plus 1 game.
I like the new Pokemon Sword game and I enjoy the Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons games.
I've tried that DORAEMON STORY OF SEASONS game and once I got through the opening it was fun.

My question is which one game would keep me busy til I purchase another game. I have a limited budget so I cant just throw money around.

Graveyard Keeper is on the switch. It's like a demented version of harvest moon where you get transported back in time and you have to embalm and bury corpses in the local church graveyard while trying to avoid being suspicious because people burn witches in this time. Eventually there's zombie slaves to automate menial tasks like hauling wood and stone. You can also manage a tavern, a vineyard, and a smallish farm field. There's a dungeon as well, which is somewhat worth going through near the beginning so you can get some rare materials early. I enjoyed it a lot.

I mean there weren't any better multiplayer RPGs at the time. None of them had a ladder system or such a good combination (for the time) of art and brutality. I hate blizzard tbh but nothing was like Diablo II. Yes there were a couple of other similar titles that came after but no one remembers their names for a reason.

The meaning of many peoples' lives is to sedate with media. There's more people sucking the blizzard cock than there are civilians in the combined populations of dozens of countries. Just look at classic WoW - if you weren't playing private servers in the last decade then you're honestly a casual. 2009-2010 is when they really took off..

>a blizzard game without microtransactions

that's unheard of, but that doesn't bother most people, just the slightly older generation that knew games before microtransactions were a standard

Dude private servers suck.

Because any amount of drama from the mods and IT people and a server fucking dies overnight.
Vanilla WoW is more than a little too time consuming to feel that insecure about all the time.

Like, I did it once and never bothered again until Classic.

If you aren't reading the DoTA patch notes right now you're missing out on some of the best reading all year. I don't even play DoTA.

Personally I'm playing DoTA Underlords, which they recently fucked up horribly. But they also added Duos, which is kinda the best thing they've ever done.

Then they added turbo mode, Knockout, which everyone loves but fuckin' sucks. It's basically a 10 minute simulation of the brutality of Duos, but with none of the extremely high agency you feel coordinating with your bro.
Naturally people love the most RNG mode that basically trains you wrong as a joke.

I dunno how they screwed this up so bad when DoTA turbo mode seemed completely fine to me. But admittedly, I don't play DoTA and that's probably who both of these modes are for.

And if anyone thinks this is off topic, fuck you. Both of these games got outlanders patches and the outlanders are cool.
But fucking lol at the DoTA patch notes. Anyone even remotely familiar with DoTA will laugh their ass off reading them.
