What a joke. If Stadia had had more exclusives, a model similar to Game Pass where you only pay one price instead of a monthly fee on top of paying for the game too, and the shit wasn't laggy, then it probably would be better. This shit is just another OnLive.

Mods should work, especially multiplayer as long as it's the same version OP has. I don't have a copy either because $35 for an indie game is steep.

Anyone tried this? Seems sooper fuggin dope. Local multiplayer games over the i-net through the magic of streaming. And you can even do it on a phone? What?

Way more excited about this than any video game that's been released in the last few years. Surprised that more people aren't talking about it. Maybe it runs like dogshit.

I played through that. It was mildly fun but needed some serious tweaking or additions in the core mechanics like the stealth to be a great game. I also wasn't a fan of how item/body placement changed every time you get caught.

How do i get into this game?
I've never played these games back in the day.
Now that this is out it looks really cozy and nostalgic and stuff, so I am intrigued to play it.
However whenever I play these games, Age of Mythology, or AoE, I can't seem to get into a gameplay loop. I just can't seem to get into it. I click on stuff but the next thing always catches me off guard and it's just not very enjoyable. I play the tedious tutorial but it's really not making much of a difference in terms of not really finding how to advance or take enjoyment out of the game.
Maybe I am just retarded.
What is the aspect you guys enjoy most in these games? What's your favourite thing to do in them? Any tips for someone just starting out?

Let's get back to talking about Age of Empires guys. What are your favourite civs? Strats? It's hard to choose one but I do love the Chinese (mega fleixibility), Ethiopians (archers, Shotel spam + insane siege), Turks (gunpowder heaven) and the Spanish (gunpowder, awesome monks, buff villagers and paladins).

As for strats I like all types of play but I'm more of an aggressive rusher. I prefer open maps like Arabia, and you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be building forward military buildings right outside your base in 15 minutes. While I do love late game battles, I find the post-Imperial Age is a micromanaging mess, although the DE quality of life improvements have helped. Still, I just love a good ol Feudal Age rush backed up by a strong 1-TC all in military push in Castle Age.

Just lost all of my items on terraria AGAIN. Started playing the game like the day before yesterday. Isn't it lovely when you die on lava 9001 miles deep underground and lose everything you spent hours mining and crafting for? Hours that I'll never get back, just melting in lava just like that.

What game gets your inner tactical rollin'?

For a while it was Siege for me, until I tried SWAT 3 and 4 and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfare in Coop,
and Siege just looked like an overhyped breed between Call of Duty and Overwatch to me.

Heck, I even remember playing Rogue-Spear some years ago!
These were the times!

So, about the new Mary Jane and Keef game I'm making with Therm0. I'm about 50-60% done with the general production of the game (logic, assets, design...), and Therm0 already made like 90% of the soundtrack of the game. But the thing is that this is taking a LOT of work, and I'm a college student of a completely unrelated course. So I was thinking:

Can I and Therm0 even make money with this shit?
I mean, does anyone here even care about the game?
If you do, would you be willing to pay for it?
If I buy an ad in here for the game, will I have any chance of making money with it?
Should the game be free and with a donation link, or available for purchase?

I'm having some ideas, like adding a hub world, some slick cutscenes, some 3p1c bossfights. But before I do any of this I need to know if all of this work is even monetizable. If not, then I'll just crank out the game kind of half-assedly.

Then that should mean that Wesker spared absolutely no expense to get his hands on the G-Virus didn't he? I mean think about it Umbrella sent not one but 2 genetically enhanced Tyrants to hunt for Jill, Claire, and Leon. And they took it a step further by having both Tyrants be different from one another. Mr X is like a Prototype version of Nemesis who is a more perfected equivalent to Mr X. So they sent Nemesis who is the perfect Bio-Weapon to obsessively stalk after the harder to catch target that being Jill and Mr X the equally as dangerous but slower Bio-Weapon to slow down Claire and Leon's attempt to flee the city

Also the fact how William Burkin has turned himself into an Eldrich hellspawn something straight from Akira that keeps constantly mutating until he acquires so much gore and mass that he starts assimilating with the surrounding underground architecture

Yeah, except that's true of every single tyrant because breaking their limiter is a universal trope at this point.

>Where the fuck are you getting your lore if you think Nemesis was the dumbest Tyrant and T-102 was the smartest?
Get your words out of my mouth nigga. I will slap your shit to smithereens.
The in-game lore actually says the T-102 is as intellectually functional as a human.

There were not T-102s. There was one T-102 and some clones stolen by Wesker that have yet to be seen again.

Horizon: Zero Dawn. Just "Horizon" would suffice, I don't know why tons of games these days feel the need to add the subtitles. A Plague Tale: Innocence for example. Just A Plague Tale would sound much better
I'm sure this is mostly subjective taste but cmon not every game needs to be Dragon Quest 11 S Echos of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition (actual fucking title)

Well the last game was called red dead revolver, a game about a man named red who owns a custom, hand-crafted revolver. They put the word "dead" in the title because it rhymes.

Now red dead redemption follows a different character who is not named red, who is trying to atone for past crimes. That game does also have revolvers though.

It's just semantics. The official records would show whatever title was appropriate according to law, but you'd still respect the ruler by calling them whatever they want. Kind of like trans people.

Just wasted SIX HOURS of my weekend playing a garbage game called Layers of Fear. Epic games is giving it away on it's launcher and it's got some good reviews, so I played it. I was having a bad time, but I'm fucking stupid, so I trusted the reviews and I assumed that it'd get good eventually. It never did. I wish epic games would give me money for playing this trash. This shit was more boring than a college lecture on a monday morning.

Bioshock 2.

The ending was such absolute dogshit. I spared the black maid's life because she seemed mostly misguided in her attempts to kill me; and apparently because I spared her life the main antagonist (who I had really been looking forward to killing) was allowed to survive.

Was so mad that I refused to buy / play Bioshock Infinite.

You didn't miss out on much.

But hating a video game for the story seems strange. When I want a story I read a book or watch a movie. Stories in video games are mostly forgettable, written by hacks who couldn't publish in an industry that actually respects good storytelling. I can count the number of games with legitimately interesting stories on one hand. And even then I'd be hard-pressed.

Just play games as games and ignore the idiocy that passes for a storyline. Expect utter trash. You'll generally get it.

I'm a competitive[/b ]pokemon player, it is the highest stakes most intellectually stimulating vs experience in video games, it is done on pirate websites not the actual games so it is also fast paced, highly competitive, organized, with no barrier to entry other than strategy knowledge, and free

pokemon games suck ass though and they're never going to get better, gamefreak couldn't make a passable PS vita game, nintendo literally don't understand how to use the internet, it's never gonna take off or get better or move anywhere from here (even if the national dex shit is the best thing they've ever done to the game and the new meta already looks infinitely better than Xtreme landorus edition 7th gen)
DIGIMON games are better in almost every way except they're also barely video games, cyber sleuth is a visual novel with 1 boss fight per hour of reading text about going on food tours of tokyo, also not esports
does dragon quest monsters even have pvp??? has literally anyone ever even played those games? what else exists in the "forcing rare animals to fight for your amusement" game sphere?

so where the FUCK are the monster game esports? I can't be the only one who sees potential in this
here industry plants reading this take a business model for free

>take a franchise people care about, it could be almost anything as long as it has small creatures
>rip off pokemon stadium

personally yeah if its a good battle, like if I'm spectating a high level round on a simulator and I can follow along with the player's thought processes and options as the match unfolds

the game itself is pretty slow and boring to watch though, that's part of the problem, with a better game with better flow, and a good commentator set up that can keep people following along with the decisions being made I don't see why other people couldn't too

People get excited by poker games and watch streams of all sorts. I don't think it's something that can become self funding professional unless the top level sport energises the lower tiers or feeds in from them and those are a revenue stream.

A lot of it is hype and knowing your audience and how big it can truly be. The real issue is that unlike say MTG or poker you can't get a good revenue stream off lower tier players and encouraging pros doesn't help. I played a bit of MTG arena and enjoyed it, I was good enough as F2P that I could beat a lot of people but that model has lots of in app purchases that work in a way pokemon doesn't. It allows people like me to feed the whales and still enjoy themselves.

It seems to me like cheating would be way too easy and far too hard to detect. I say this as someone that totally cheated on link cable battles when I was a kid. First with gameshark, then with a brain boy which was a cartridge based save editor for pokemon games. The tools people have these days make it so much easier, everything I had to dick around with on a tiny non backlit screen people can do on their home computers now.
